Burn ban


lifted

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

People are talking about all of the re-
cent rainfall, -but no one's complaining,
particularly since the county's burn ban
has been lifted.
This past week the county's Emer-
gency Operations Center measured
more than three inches of rainfall in the
county, with some areas receiving more
than four inches, according to spokes-
man Michael Heeder.
"The Santa Fe fire is out thanks to the
steady rainfall over the southern end of
the county, which also allowed the re-
scinding of the burn ban in Bradford
County," he said.
According to Heeder, the county now
tracks rainfall at two locations in the
safety complex. One of these locations
.is a new weather station purchased with
state grant funds.
"This weather station not only tracks
rainfall totals and temperatures, but also
measures the wind speed and direc-
tion, a critical component in the event
of a wildfire or hazardous materials
spill. The system updates every 60 sec-
onds and allows emergency respond-
ers and-dispatchers to receive real time
data in the event of an emergency," said
Heeder.
The rain meansat athecounty is less
vulnerable to wildfire, but that doesn't
mean the danger has disappeared. Out-
door burning is being permitted again,
but any open fire should be treated
with caution. An unmonitored fire can
quickly turn into a brush fire threaten-
ing wooded and populated areas.
Authorizations may be issued for
burning to be conducted from 9 a.m.
and the fire must discontinue spreading
one hour before sunset. Burn authori-
zations may be obtained by calling the
Suwannee Forestry Center at 386-758-
5700.
Requirements for permissible out-
door burning are available on the Brad-
ford County website at www.brad-
fordcountyfl.gov and clicking on the
Emergency Information link.
Practice wildfire safety:
Do not discard cigarettes from mov-
ing vehicles; use ashtrays.
When pulling off the side of the
road, stay off dry grass areas.
Do not .operate all-terrain vehicles
on dry vegetation areas.
Check lawnmowers and farm equip-
ment for properly working spark arrest-
ers.
*- Properly extinguish fires when
cooking outdoors and never leave fires
unattended.
Protect your home:
Design and landscape your home
with wildfire safety in mind. Allow a
30-foot buffer of noncombustible mate-
rial around your home.
Use noncombustible materials on
the roof and regularly clean the roof
and gutters.
Teach family members how to use
a fire extinguisher. Install and regularly
test smoke detectors.
Rake leaves and dead limbs and
twigs. Clear all flammable vegetation.
Have a garden hose long enough to
reach any area of your home and prop-
erty.
When wildfire threatens:
Listen to the media of you NOAA
Weather Alert radio for Civil Emergen-
cy Messages.
Prepare your family, pets and sup-
plies in case you have to evacuate. If
told to evacuate, do so immediately.


Bail set for coach charged in Las Vegas slaying


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A vacation to Las Vegas turned into
a nightmare for a Bradford County as-
sistant coach and his family after a
confrontation resulted in the accidental
death of a Utah man.
Now the coach, 37-year-old Benja-
min Hawkins, is facing murder charg-
es.
The victim, John Allen Massie, 46,
was pronounced dead less than 30-min-
utes after Hawkins punched him in the
jaw and he fell to the ground.
The two were at a casino known as
O'Shea's thte night of July 6. The casino
apparently has a reputation on the Las
Vegas strip for being a hard-partying
locale.
Hawkins and Massie were reportedly
in a casino restroom when the incident
began. Hawkins told authorities that
Massie, a white man, said something
about "a black man in a yellow shirt."
According to the arrest rep',ri, Hawk-
ins, who is black, jid he icld the. man
to shut up, but the confrontation contin-
ued after they both left the restroom.
According to the police report, after
Massie asked him "what he was going
to do about it," Hawkins turned to walk
away, then spun around and landed a
punch on Massie's jaw.


The incident was reportedly caught
on a surveillance camera. Massie fell
on his back and did not get up. He was
pronounced dead a short time later at-
the Desert Springs Hospital.
The incident and its racial overtones
made national headlines.
Hawkins' wife, Leticia, 35, came
forward after his arrest to say that her
husband was defending himself. Massie
was aggressive and didn't seem like he
would leave her husband alone, she told
the Associated Press.
Hawkins has three children, and he
and his "ife were in Las Vegas for a
three-day trip with some friends from
Monticello. They had been in Vegas
for a few hours when the confrontation
took place.
Others who know Hawkins have de-
fended him as being levelheaded and
nonviolent, including his sister Cilitia
Brown, who said her brother was de-
pressed and sad when he spoke.to her
over the phone from the jail in Clark
County, Nev. "
"People-who know Ben know, this
is not, he would not just hit anybody
'because somebody says black man in
a yellow shirt. That's something he
wouldn't even pay attention to. He
would keep on walking," Cilitia told
Las Vegas' KTNV.
Also speaking out for Hawkins was


Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith,
whose letter to Las Vegas Justice of the
Peace William Jansen played a role in
Hawkins' bail hearing Tuesday morn-
ing. In it Smith vouched for Hawkins as
an upstanding citizen, according to the
Las Vegas Review-Journal, and said he
would make sure the defendant made it
to any scheduled court hearings.
Jansen reportedly did not believe
-the facts of the case warranted a first-
degree murder-charge.
Prosecutors asked for bail to be set at
$100,000, but Jansen set it at $25,000.
Hawkins' defense attorney, Jack Bu-
chanan, said bail should be posted and
his client released as soon as Tuesday
night. Hawkins has been held at the
Clark County Detention Center in-Las
Vegas since his arrest.
An amended criminal complaint of
open murder was filed. According to
the Review-Journal, that would allow a
'jury to consider charges in involuntary
and voluntary manslaughter as well as
second- and first-degree murder.
Hawkins pleaded not guilty during.
his'first appearance July 8. As of press
time, the defense had still not had a
chance to review the surveillance video
footage,.Buchanan said. The next hear-
ing is set for Sept. 28.

Arc says thanks for 16
years of support
Since 1973, the Knights of Columbus in Florida has conducted its
annual developmental disability drive across the state. The drive,
most often called the Tootsie Roll Drive, has been one of the most
successful ventures undertaken.
In 2010-2011 the Florida State Council raised more than $900,000
by giving away small Tootsie Rolls hoping for a small donation. All
of this money will be given to various programs serving individu-
als with intellectual and developmental disabilities like The Arc of
Bradford County.
Council #10572, serving both St. Edward in Starke and St. Wil-
liam in Keystone Heights, conducted part of its drive in April at
Wal-Mart in Starke. Working closely with Arc director Sherry Rusz-
kowski, the drive raised a net of $.1,138. Brian Jackson, manager of
'the Starke Walmart is received a Certificate of Appreciation for the
store's support to the council.
The council 10572 is very proud to have been able to donate nearly
$30,000 over the last 16 years to the Arc of Bradford County.
"In these very challenging economic times, it is awesome to have
such faithful community partners," Sherry Ruszkowski said{ "The
Knights of Columbus make our economic burdens lighter and we are
thankful that they always come through for us.'

Starke buying Edwards Road land it thought it owned


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

It turns out Starke doesn't own
' all of the land where it spent grant
funds to build a park. so it is now
having to acquire that land.
The city of Starke passed on
hu\ ing the former Riverside Uni-
:lorrn Rentals building next to its
: hlll fields on Edwards Road. but
now anther buyer is interested.
At stake was not just a permanent
home for the city's recreation
program, however. The owner-
,'/ship of the two acres behind the
*building was also in dispute but
would have been settled had the
city moved forward with the pur-
chase.

Wary of spending several hun-
dred thousand dollars in the c'ur-
rent economy and with questions
about the future of recreation, the
city did not move to buy Riv-
erside, even after investigating
the environmental health of the
property.
Believing it owned the land,




COACH
Continued from page 1A

The Bradford school dis-
trict had not made a decision
on-Hawkins' employment as of
press time.
I Hawkins is a 1992 graduate
from Bradford High School who
returned to coach at the school
in 2006. At the time he said it
doesn't get better for a coach to
return to'the school he graduated
from.
Hawkins had changed careers
in order to work with kids, and
he told the Telegraph at the time'
that he chose education instead
of juvenile justice because he
wanted to impact 'kids' lives
before they got into trouble. He
took.a pay cut from his office job
to begin teaching at the former.


the cit\ used grant funds to ex-
pand its park. It turns out the city
does not o\n the land. however,
so it \\as given a choice to pur-
chase the two acres or risk it be-
ing acquired by a new owner.
In a June :meeting. Starke
City Attorne\ Terr\I Bro3\n had
asked for permission to file suit
against the Ri\cerside property
owner if an agreement could not
be reached and he tried to move
forward wiih the sale of the land.
The commission agreed, but said
ro action should bhe taken until
Brown and the city's operations
manager, Rick\ Thompson. had
met with property owner.

Thompson's own research
seemed to confirm that Riverside
,had indeed acquired the addition-
al two acres behind its building
in the early 1980s, and he came
back from the rnieeting with Riv-
erside's W. Jerry Vereen with an
offer to sell the two acres to the
city for $20,000.
The history of the property.is
a convoluted one. According to



Renaissance Center where he
said he learned patience working
'with some of the district's most
troubled kids.
He was subsequently able to
become a coach, and he has also
taught intensive reading at the
middle school and history at the
high school.
While Hawkins' family is
waiting to see what will happen
with him legally, Massie's' fam-
ily is mourning his death. Ruth
Drinkard of Arizona told the Las
Vegas Review-Journal that her
brother was always so laid back
and she was shocked to hear that
he had been involved in a fight.
"It was just not in his nature.
I can only remember him fight-
ing one time in his life. That was
in high school', and that was over
me," Drinkard said.
Massie, a former airman., was


records Thompson found, the
history goes back to 1964 when
the city of Starke deeded 28 acres
in that area over to the Bradford
County Development Authority.
A couple of parcels went to the
state in 1965 and 1968, and then
in 1975, nearly seven acres was
acquired by the city for Edwards
Road Park.
Two years later, the city ac-
-quired two more acres, then Riv-
erside began acquiring property
from the Development Authority.
Finally is the record of the city
turning the two acres in question
back over to the development au-
thority in December 1982. River-
side acquired it a month later.
Starke Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner said the city couldn't
risk losing access to the property
of the facilities on it. At the same
time, she said if the city doesn't
own the land. then the person
responsible for certifying owner-
ship before the park expansion
should be responsible for pay-
ing the $20,000. Mayor Travis
Woods agreed.



a Gulf War veteran who was
awarded three bronze stars. He
worked as a civilian at Hill Air
Force Base in Utah. He had three
children, .ages 15 to 25, two
stepchildren, and lived with his
mother.
According to his obituary, in
additionito traveling, and being
outdoors. Massie also loved mo-
torcycling, fishing, remodeling
and helping others. Several mes-
sages posted on a funeral home's
website attested to Massie's im-
pact on their lives.
Rachelle Weaver wrote, "I am
a better person'for knowing him.
He has been there through thick
and thin." Larry Reeder called
his death "a useless loss."
Massie's was the third killing
on the famed Las Vegas strip in
less than two weeks and has left
officials there fighting a public


Thompson read the grant
agreement the city signed saying
it.must own or lease the property
on which grant-funded improve-
ments are made for a minimum
of 30 years.

Commissioner Wilbur Wa-
ters asked the city attorney if his
former partner, John Broling,
performed the necessary title
search confirming ownership of
the property before the city en-
tered into the grant agreement.
Brown said the city surveyor,
Pat Welch, provided the legal de-
scription that was used based on
the county property appraiser's
records.
Checking with the property
appraiser's office, Brown said
Welch found that the city was
listed as owning the parcel. Until
the issue was raised last year, the
city was listed as owner in that
office, and so Brown said River-
side's owner had never paid taxes
on the additional two acres.
"Part of the blame rests with
my office, part of the blame rests



relations battle over the general
safety of the tourist mecca.
One Vegas law enforcement
official, Capt. Todd .Fasulo,
blamed alcohol and crowd den-
sity for sparking, tempers. (Re-
ports have not explicitly linked
the Hawkins case to alcohol.)
"When you. get that many
people in a small square footage,
there's bound to be some con-
frontations. And when that hap-
pens, you're going to have some
fights," Fasulo told the Review-
Journal.
Even more unbelievable than
the three killings is that violence
,actually broke out at a funeral for
one of the victims. A gunman
opened fire and wounded several
people attending the funeral, for
the first victim, 2.1-year-old An-
dres Elena, who was stabbed in
the chest during a confrontation


with about three other places if
you want to point fingers and go
that route," Brown said. The city
never paid for a title search and
he said he doesn't believe Welch
was ever paid to go out and actu-
ally survey the property.
Multiple mistakes were made,
Brown said, and the bottom line
is the city never owned those
acres after they were given to the'
Development Authority.
Brown said he was under the
impression that Riverside never
knew about the actual ownership
of the land, either, but accord-
ing to Riverside's representative,
both he and members of the city's
recreation department knew and
discussed the ownership of the
property in the past. He said he
hasn't independently confirmed
that, however.
Recreation Director.Alica Mc-
Millian said the grant in question
was already in the process of be-
ing awarded when she took over
the department. She denied ever
having any conversations over
the land's ownership.



on June 25. Again, the fight was
apparently over some comment
made. A man was also stabbed
but survived.
Then on July 4, another
21-year-old was killed. Javier
Medrano-Padilla suffered mul-
tiple stab wounds when a fight
broke out between two groups
of men. The attacker said he was
acting in self-defense, but also
claimed he couldn't remember
anything after he blacked out
from alcohol consumption.

Brown recommended the city
commission purchase the two
acres for the requested amount,
then seek reimbursement from
the responsible parties. The
$20,000 is a negotiated price.
Brown said Riverside originally
wanted fair- market value, then
requested $50,000.

Commissioner Tommy
Chastain wanted an agreement
that the parties responsible for
the mistakes would reimburse the
city for its cost in acquiring land
it thought it already owned. After
the original motion to purchase
.the land without that assurance
died, Spooner moved to purchase
the land and hold the attorney and
surveyor's office responsible for
reimbursing the purchase price.
The motion passed 5-0.
Chastain requested a report on
reimbursing the city at the com-
mission's next meeting.

ed outside the Marion County
'Courthouse on July 7, follow-
ing a guardianship hearing for
a 94-year-old woman that he is
accused of befriending and then
conning out of $450,000. He is
'charged with exploitation of an
elderly person.
According to a report filed by
Marion County Sheriffs Office
Detective Janeen Henley-Free- 4
man, Fluharty had taken care of
the woman's lawn since 2008.
Over a period of time, he con-
vinced her to put his name on her
financial accounts. After doing
so,, Fluharty reportedly had the
victim write checks and make
loans to him. "The defendant
subsequently began taking the
victim's money through checks,
money transfers, debit card
transactions and cash," Henley-
Freeman said.
The report also said that Flu-
harty convinced the woman to
give him power of attorney over \
her affairs and to change her wll
so he would be the sole executor
and beneficiary. The woman,
whose name has not been re-
leased, told officials that she did
not give Fluharty permission to
change her will, have power of
attorney or control over her af-


airs. Judge Cochran, bond for Flu-
According. to Marionr Coun- harty was set at $125,000.

Sam and Jerry Williams of Cognito Farm were recognized at the 11th annual CARES
dinner on June 30. Pictured from left, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam,
Sam and Jerry Williams, and Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick.


Accused rapist
sentenced to
probation
Joseph Robert Kelley, 20, was
sentenced to one year probation
after pleading no contest to bat-
tery.
The Brooker man was arrested
in February 2010 and accused of
sexually assaulting a 15-year-old
Lawtey girl after she passed out
during a party at a mobile home
near Lawtey.
Kelley's plea and sentence was
part of a plea agreement in which
he promised to testify against his
two co-defendants.

Deputies foil
attempt to
smuggle drugs
Abram Griffis, 37, was sen-
tenced to 180 days in jail after
pleading no contest to two counts


of introduction of contraband
into a detention facility, two
counts of possession of a con-
trolled substance and one count
of possession of paraphernalia
for storage.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, on June 1, deputies
A. Mixon and Scott Konkell
were standing in front of the
sheriff's office when,just before
11 p.m., they saw a dark green
vehicle pull into the parking
lot of Starke's Pizza Hut. They
then observed the passenger of
the vehicle jump out of the car,
walk past the dumpster in the
pizzeria's parking lot and place
something inside the trash recep-
tacle under a shelter located on
the south side of the courthouse.
Jail inmates routinely assist with
custodial duties at the courthouse
and would have access to the
trash can.
After the passenger returned
to the vehicle, the two ,officers
walked over to the trash can and

recovered a plastic bag with a
brown pill bottle labeled "Baby
Doll's" that contained several
pills, two unopened packages of
tobacco, one package of rolling
papers, and a hand-written note
that read, "For Baby Doll. Tell
her she is loved and missed."
The pills were later identified
as 12 pills of Carisoprodol, 4
pills of Alprazolam, and 10 pills
of Methocarbamol.
Konkell left the scene to make
contact with the dark green ve-
hicle and caught up with it at the
intersection of S.R. 16 and North-
west 177th Street near Pleasant
Grove. He identified Griffis as
the individual who put the bag
into the trash can. Mixon verified
Griffis's identity and also noted,
that the man was in a relationship
%with an inmate, Narcie Walker.
Mixon then obtained the re-
cording of a phone conversa-
tion between Griffis and Walker
made earlier that evening. In that
call, Walker said, "Bring it to-
night. Bring the stuff tonight."
Mixon then searched Walker's
cell, and recovered several items
of contraband. The deputy also
told the inmate about the diop
off and the phone call recording.
Walker admitted to setting up the
smuggling attempt, adding that
she has a drug problem.

This workshop will encourage
local sourcing and foster busi-
ness relationships by creating a
forum for farmers, restaurants
and distributors to better under-
stand each other's growing, sell-
ing and purchasing needs.
The, Farm-to-Restaurant
Workshop and Culinary Fair
encourages the shift towards a
renewed and sustainable agri-
cultural system that bolsters our
local economy and healthy diets
for our community. The 10-coun-
ty area of north central Florida
spends over $4 billion per year
on food; therefore, encouraging


the capture of even a portion of
this money through local agricul-
ture and business will help these
dollars re-circulate in our region
many times over.
The program for the work-
shop highlights how agriculture
supports many types of industry
and jobs, and how north central
Florida is quickly maturing into
this innovative approach to com-
munity building and security.
This workshop is presented by
Blue Oven Kitchens, Slow Food
Gainesville, the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, and the

campaign.

Starke youth set to compete in national motocross event


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor

Playing motocross video
games on his Playstation 2
does not make Cole Williams
that much different from most


ordinary 10-year-old boys, but
when Williams is not playing
video games, he could quite
possibly be on a real dirt bike
and competing at a high level
in regional and national events.
Williams, the son of Jimmy


and Chrissy Williams of
Starke, has been competing in
motocross events for
approximately five years and
has qualified for the Aug. 1-6
Red Bull American
Motorcyclist Association


Amateur National Motocross
Championships at Loretta
Lynn Ranch in Hurricane
Mills, Tenn., for the second
straight year. The event brings
together the top 40 riders in the
world.


Cole's first time competing
at the event did not go so well,
but this year, he's riding a
first-place finish on his
modified bike-he races both
modified and stock bikes-at
the Sunset Ridge Loretta Lynn

McDonald's owner to climb mountain for cancer


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Cancer has touched Michael
Potapow's life twice.
Now, Potapow plans to help
touch the lives of those dealing
with cancer today by touching
the summit of Mount
Kilimanjaro as part of a Climb
for Cancer Foundation
expedition consisting of 13
other climbers.
"It's going to be an
experience," said Potapow, a
Gainesville resident who owns
the McDonald's restaurants in
Keystone Heights and Starke.
"I'm nervous. I'm scared, but I
know that God will bring us
through it. Seven days after
climbing, I'm going to stand
on that summit, look around
and say I accomplished
something and raised money
for this great organization."
Potapow spoke at the July 5
meeting of the Kiwanis Club
of Starke, sharing the details of
the trip-he leaves Thursday,
July 21-and why he got
involved.
It was a friend of his-Mike
Carr-who called him about
the idea of making the climb. ,
Each participant in Climb for
Cancer raises $10,000, though
Potapow said he has set his
fundraising goal at $20,000.
Climb for Cancer is a noif-
for-profit organization in
Gainesville that devotes the
funds it raises for cancer
research as well as to cover
some of the everyday costs
families incur as a result of
loved ones' hospitalizations in
the form of vouchers for
parking and meals, for
example.
Potapow's father-in-law died
from cancer this past year. His
mother died from cancer at the
age of 55 in 1997.
Also, Potapow saw cancer's
effects when serving as the
board president of Ronald
McDonald House Charities of
Gainesville.
The chance to do something
to assist Climb for Cancer and
its efforts is something
Potapow is looking forward to.
"It's going to be a great
trip," he told Starke Kiwanis
members, pausing for a second
before adding, "Well, I say
that now."
You 'see, this will be
Potapow's first experience
with mountain climbing. He's
only, attempting -the .. largest
mountain in' Africa-an
inactive volcano that summits
at more than 19,000 feet.
"We start our climb at 5,000
feet," Potapow said. "We
summit at sunrise the seventh
day, leaving camp at midnight,
climbing for seven hours to a
height of 19,500 feet."
Kilimanjaro is unique,
-though, in that., typical
mountain-climbing equipment
is not necessary to reach the
peak. It is considered one of
the world's most accessible
summits. According to the
. Tanzania National Parks


Michael Potapow


website, "Most climbers can
reach the crater rim with little
more than a walking stick,
proper clothing and
determination."
Determination is right,
because accessible does not
equate to easy. Potapow talked
about how one portion of the
climb will include an elevation
gain of 18 percent over four to
five miles.
Potapow said he has been
working with a personal trainer
since January to ready himself
for the climb. He has been
taking part in a CrossFit
training program, focusing on
his leg strength.
"We've been doing squats,"
Potapow said. "We've been
-doing box jumps. I've been on
an incline carrying 35-pound
kettle bells for 20, 30 minutes
at a time."
His regiment has 'also
included stadium steps, which
prompted Potapow to say, "I
know every creak in every
stair at the University of


Florida stadium. I climb that
three to four times a week."
Each climber will carry a
day pack, with a desired
weight of less than 20 pounds.
That will contain such things
as food and energy bars, etc.,
as well as water.
'Sherpas will accompany the
climbers and carry larger packs
that will include sleeping bags,
change of clothing, etc.
If needed, Sherpas can carry
a climber in danger off the


mountain.
"Three of them will carry
you off the mountain in three
hours," Potapow said. "They
can get going." -
Altitude sickness "is -a
concern, so Potapow will be
carrying several medications to
help with that if he does get
sick. However, he said most
people who wind up getting
altitude sickness on

Tuition in place
for adult
general ed
program at
career center
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
The Bradford-Union Area
Career Technical Center will
be charging tuition for its adult
general education program in
accordance with policy
changes enacted by the Florida
Department of Education.
A tuition of $45 per half
year will be assessed by the
career center. Non-Florida
residents will have to pay an
additional $135.
There is also a one-time
GED test fee of $10.
Brad Bishop, a counselor at
the career center, encouraged
those interested in the program
to enroll now.
"The cost of the program in
the future is only going to
rise," Bishop said.
To avoid paying out-of-state
tuition, students must prove
Florida residency in
accordance to Florida Statutes
(1006.21). Two types of
residency documents will be
required.
Documents must include one
of the following:
Florida voter's registration
card.
Florida driver's license.
State of Florida
identification card.
Florida vehicle
registration.
Proof of a permanent
home in Florida which is


occupied as a primary
residence by the individual or
by the individual-'s parent if
the individual is a dependent
child.
Proof of a homestead
exemption in Florida.
Transcripts from a Florida
high school for multiple years
if the Florida high school
diploma or GED was earned
within the last 12 months.
Proof of permanent full-
time employment in Florida
for at least 30 hours per week
for a 12-month period.
Documents may include one
or more of the following:
A declaration of domicile
in Florida.
A Florida professional or
occupational license.
Florida incorporation.
A document evidencing
family ties in Florida.
Proof of membership in a
Florida-based charitable or
professional organization. -
Any other documentation
that supports the student's
request for resident status,
including, but not limited to,
utility bills and proof of 12
consecutive months of


payments; a lease agreement
and proof of 12 consecutive
months of payments; or an
official state, federal, or court
document evidencing legal ties
to Florida.
Another change this year for
adult students at the Bradford-
Union Area Career Technical
Center is that the Post 9/11 GI
Bill will now be accepted as a
form of financial assistance.
Bishop not only wanted to
make the public aware of the
changes in regard to adult
general education, but to
encourage high school students
to look into what the career
center has to offer them.
Students can earn credits
toward Santa Fe College while
enrolling in such programs as
agriculture, computer
technology, health sciences,
culinary arts and business.
For more information on the
changes in adult general
education and what the
Bradford-Union Area Career
Technical Center offers to
adult and high school students,
please call 904-966-6764.

Paul Meng of Hampton

were joined by their 11
children-Carlton, Bill,
Carolyn, Phyllis, Marty, Joyce,

John-and their spouses,
grandchildren and 'great-
grandchildren.
Also enjoying the weekend
celebration were children of
Meng's late twin brother, Fran
Meng, his wife, Dolores, and
Joe and Mary Gissy and their
family.
-Family came from all over
Florida, Georgia, North and
South Carolina, and from as
far away as Oregon and
California to celebrate.
Gissy Springs is a private
spring owned by Jim and
Brenda Gissy of Orlando.
The 100-plus guests enjoyed
a picnic lunch and swimming
in the cool, crystal-clear
springs as well as snorkeling,
kayaking, canoeing and
camping. During the
celebration, Meng was
presented with a birthday cake
in the shape of a horseshoe
surrounding the letter "M."
This was the brand used to
mark Meng's cattle when he
owned Meng Dairy in the early
'60s.
While snorkeling in the
springs, great nephew Stephen
Owen found a mastodon tooth.
It is not uncommon to find
artifacts in the springs. During
excavation of the springs in
2006, a full mastodon skull
with several teeth and a tusk
was found in the then murky
water.

edition published in 1989. He

callss a lot of history relating
to Bradford County.)

By MARCIA MILLER
.Telegraph Staff Writer
"The Bradford County area
was founded and existed on
agriculture, mainly family
fatms," said J.R. "Nook"
Wainwright,. longtime farmer
and retired manager of the
Starke Farmers Market. "There
were no plantations here as I
recall, and few large farms.
Most farms averaged about 40
acres, large enough to provide
everything a family needed to
live."
Agriculture has been a major
concern of4 ,46s. f Florida
for many0 ,ygysnV.ainwright
was born in Starke in 1914-in
the same house he lived in for
Most of his 97 years--on the
corner of Clark and Jackson
streets. His recollections 'of
agriculture in the area start in
tthe 1920s while he.was still a
boy. ,
1 His history in agriculture has
beenn, long and .varied, ever
since he was a boy. In about
1926, Wainwright and his
'friends would skip school in
!the mornings to meet the train
|at the depot. The conductor
...would let them on the cars to
ell strawberries to the
passengers. They would return
rafter school in the afternoon to
sell. strawberries to the evening
:traln passengers.
Cotton gin in downtown
-Starke in 1920s
t He recalls the importance of
cotton as a major crop of the
area. "The nearest cotton gin
was one .and a half blocks from
here ('here' was the corner of
Clark and Jackson streets).
Most boys my age were very
curious and we would go to the
gin to watch the cotton. come
.in-. It came mostly by mule and
wagon, or ox carts, though
there were some people using
Model T trucks," he said.
I After the farmers brought in
the cotton, it was ginned
(seeds removed) and baled and
then shipped out. "It left the
gin mainly by loaded boxcars
k-or mule," said Wainwright.
: While cotton was the major
,crop in the area,. it was
customaryy for merchants to
1"carry" farmers, Wainwright
said. The farmer would buy his
"goods on credit until the cotton
"crop came in and then he
would pay all his bills until
Next season. "I have been told
.that this is why taxes are
collected at the beginning of
INovember, due to the fact that
jhis was the only time :the
majority of the people had any
moneyey" he said.
i Then the boll weevil .made
tfits way through this part of the.
country and slowly, but surely
.devastated the cotton crop in
north Florida. Wainwright said
E1930 is the last year he recalls
any cotton being ginned in
Bradford County.

New River and Highland there
were 'peanuts, coirn, beans,

cotton and othet crops. Around
Starke, Lawiey and Hamptono,
there were more vegetable
crops, but farming was
diversified everywhere in the
county," said Wainwright.

Wainwright said that
agriculture used to be centered
around the gai'lroad since 'the
'railroad was the only -way
available to transport crops.

important crop as early as the
1860s. They were planted in
Starke, Lawtey, Hampton and
as far west as Raiford. A lot of
vegetables were grown for


shipment, few were sold
locally because most local
people had their own vegetable
,gardens'
Livestock, sugar cane,
sweet potatoes
Livestock were. always
important to the livelihood of
the farm family. Livestock
were run on open range with
hogs ahd cows grazing at will
until they were confined and
fattened 'for slaughter. "Every,
farmer had a smokehouse in
those days and smoked and
cured their own meat," said
Wainwright.
Almost every farmer had his
own cane mill to grind sugar
cane and a sugar kettle to boil
the juice to make cane syrup.
The average family farm in
Bradford County also grew
and stored sweet potatoes as a
major part of the diet. "Every
farmer had a patch or spot to
grow sweet potatoes and a
potato bank," he said: "The
bank was cared for and eaten
out of until summer."
A potato bank was made out
of. wooden slabs from the
sawmill, set in a teepee shape
and elevated off the ground. It
was packed with pine straw

'from freezing and to keep out
the wet. "My own potato bank
'was 1'50-feet long. 'yotr
couldn't stand up in it, but you
could-stoop. We.raised a lot of
sweet potatoes and sold a lot of,
sweet potatoes at 50 cents per
bushel," said Wainwright.-
Cane syrup went for 50
cents per gallon. Ten cents
would buy a pound of cured
bacon and 15 cents would buy
a pound of smoked ham..
Wainwright remembered
that citrus used to be important
to the area. He said there was
a glove of Satsuma oranges.

Dear Editor:
Our Farmers Market isn't as
good as the one-at Melrose was
heard for some time. Then
Cheryl Owens steps up.to the
plate to make Keystone's
Farmers Market even better.
There are a lot of vendors, and
guess what-not enough
customers!
Do you have any idea what
vendors must do to be ready to
serve you? Let's get real. For
this. undertaking to be a
success, you must go to Nature
Park and buy some of the
products that are being offered.
You can get your lawn mower
blades sharpened (plus some
other items that may need'
sharpening), you 'can buy
plants, veggies, have a sign
painted, buy lawn furniture,
get local honey and lots of
other things..
So please, before it is too
late. go to the Keystone
Farmer's Market and help not
only the vendors, but yourself.

The white
crosses of
Bradford County
Dear Editor:
The non-denominational
group of men building and
installing six-foot white
crosses have installed more
than 400 in and around
Bradford County. Since
requests have slowed, the
project appears' to have
reached everyone wanting a
cross in his or her yard.
We have several already
built and painted. Anyone
warning a cross.should contact,
his' or her minister, since
requests are being filled
through the Bradford' County
Ministerial Association.
It has been a wonderful
experience building and
installing crosses without cost
for Christian people in the
community.

Florida .Guardsmen joined
communications experts from
local emergency response
agencies at the Camp Blanding
Joint Training Center recently
to test their ability to
communicate with each other
during disasters.
The exercise, aptly named
"Operation Communicate
Freedom," is one of a series of
exercises being conducted
across the state to test
interoperable communications.
"This particular exercise is
for the northeast Florida
region," said Jeffrey
Alexander, the lead exercise
planner with the Northeast
Florida Regional Council.
"We're attempting to test the
interoperable communications
resources within the region and
the ability of the technicians to
do the various tasks that we've
identified."... i.

large networks for big cities
and small networks from
smaller communities and
agencies-and linking them
together so they can
communicate with each other.
This allows first responders
from outside agencies to come
into a situation and begin to
respond quickly.

"You're almost walking at a

Potapow said the biggest.
concern with the trip is
malaria. Two days prior to /
leaving the States, he will
begin taking malaria
medication, which he will
continue to do until seven days
after his return home.- .
"There are. a number of
health concerns," Potapow
said. "I've had a regiment of
shots."
A Kiwanis member asked if
there was any danger due to
wildlife. Potapow said that
could be a possibility after
descending the mountain,
when the group will then go on
a three-day jungle safari.
"We might have some
concerns there," he said. "I've
seen videos of lions jumping
on trucks."

together," Alexander said.
Interoperability is important
during disasters because each
responding agency must be
able to communicate in order
to efficiently and effectively
respond.
"In any major disaster, no
entity can respond alone,"
Alexander said. "They need
the neighboring communities
and agencies from outside the
impacted .areas. When, they
come in, they have to be able
to talk to each other to work
together to address whatever
issues there are."
The Florida National Guard
is an integral part of any.
regional response in Florida.'
During disasters or
emergencies, the. Florida
National Guard has multiple
resources it can provide to a
local response tok improve
communications. One such
resource, the Regional
Emergency Response Network
can provide, several different
options 'for responders,
including voice, data, satellite
and radio communications.
"There are so many different
agencies that have their own
frequencies and different.
systems-UHF, VHF-we can
have one person talking to
another even though their
radios are on different
networks and different
systems," said Sgt. 1st Class.

Expeditionary Signal
Battalion. "We can provide
that capability."


end. In between,.climbers will
experience a variety of
conditions, from desert-like to
arctic-like once they near the -
summit.
It is a seven-day trek to get
to the peak, what with the slow
pace and the process of
acclimatization, but the
descent is a lot faster after an
early and long seventh day.
"Actually, your seventh day
you start at midnight,"
Potapow said. "You climb six
hours, seven hours to get to the
summit for the sunrise. After
you stay there an hour or two,
you climb seven hours back
that same day. The following
morning, you have one more
climb-down for six hours and,
you're off the mountain.
."It's two days down
basically."
The trip is meaningful in and
of itself, but this particular
climb will especially bring
cancer's impact on lives to the
forefront as Climb for Cancer
co-founder Ron Farb, who will
lead the expedition, will carry
the ashes of his sister, Harriet,
to the summit. Harriet, who
climbed Kilimanjaro with her
brother in 2008, lost her battle
to cancer in October 2010.

railroad carload. Some sugar
cane was also shipped north
for the purpose of chewing. .
Some farmers in the area
swapped eggs, sweet potatoes,
cured meat and chickens for
staple goods. "I remember in
the late 20s and in the 30s
receiving six cents per pound
*for dressed porkers with the
heads off," he said. "Many.
doctors and preachers were
paid in foodstuffs because
money was short."
Going out on the town
meant hitching up the
wagon
Most farmers came to Starke
on Saturday morning or
Saturday afternoon to buy
supplies. This meant a trip by
horse and wagon or mule and
wagon mostly, though there
were some Model T cars and
trucks on the road. There were
no paved or graded roads in
the county at this time and a
'ride into town was often slow
'and bumpy. The railroad was
'the only real means of
transportation to other cities.
"In Starke all the action took
place down at the train depot.
'For enjoyment on Sundays, or
When we had time, we'd go
down to see wfho got on and.
.who got off," said Wainwright.
The county had telephones, but
most important messages were
still sent by telegraph.


Depression felt only
indirectly in Starke
The Great Depression of
1929 didn't hit Starke as hard
as it did other places, at least
not directly, said Wainwright.
The families of the area grew
their own food and didn't deal
too much with cash. However,
the Depression might have
indirectly contributed to the
first big economic disaster
(other than failing crops)
which hit Bradford County
with the closing of the.
Bradford County Bank in
1930.
"We had a bad crop year and
almost all the farmers had to
borrow money and then
couldn't pay it back," he said.
After the destruction of the
cotton crop in the 20s,
merchants had -stopped
"carrying" farmers. With
cotton gone, agriculture wasn't
viewed as a sure thing as it had
once been.
Farmers had to borrow
money from the bank for
supplies and then pay it back
when the crops came in. When
the crops failed, the farmers
had no money to pay the bank,
particularly with the
Depression making money
even shorter than it was. With
no federal insurance such as
protects our money in banks
today, the bank was forced to
close.
1931 a banner year
. Things turned around
quickly, however, and 1931
was a banner year for


strawberries and other crops in
the county. "There was an
overabundance of. labor, farm
hands were easy to hire and
economical to pay," said
Wainwright.
There was no manufacturing
in the area at the time and the
only source of employment for
laborers was agriculture. "This
is one of the reasons
strawberries were so
successful then," he said
"Strawberries required a lot of
labor, and laborers were
plentiful then."
There were a lot of
turpentine stills and a few
sawmills in the area that also
hired laborers, but agriculture
was still the main employment
of blue-collar workers.
From high to low...
1932 saw major
drought
One of the biggest blows to
agriculture in the area was the
drought of 1932. There was no
water available for irrigation at
that time. "I remember Titus
Olson came to the area selling
Delco light plants and water
pumps," said Wainwright-.
There was a lot of local well
drilling at the time, with wells
being shallow, only about 50-
60 feet, he said.
At that time Starke had
telephones, telegraph and
electricity, but little private
motor transportation. Few
areas other than Starke -had
these things,, although Lawtey
had lights.
In 1932 Franklin D.
Roosevelt was inaugurated as
president of the United States
and he declared a moratorium
on banks (bafiks were declared
legally exempt from paying
their obligations for a certain
period of time). So many
banks had failed that the
country could no longer
operate without .a stable
banking economy.
The Bank of Starke also
closed at that time and the area
was in a financial crisis. Some
farmers were able to get help
from the Farmers and Dealers
)Bank in Lake Butler, the only
bank in the area to survive this
economic disaster, but even
F&D was having to run a tight
ship during these lean years.


- "'- -. 1 a. "I

Corn is still produced in Bradford County today. While not the major cash crop that it
once was for almost every Bradford farmer, corn is still important to local agriculture.


"The banks in Lawtey,
Hampton, Raiford and Starke
didn't weather the storm, nor
did' hundreds or thousands of
banks nationwide," .said
Wainwright. "Things were
very bleak for a number of
years in this area."
Trucking firm helped out
this area
One thing that helped things
pick up was that a Mr. Miller
came into the area operating a
fleet of trucks to transport
strawberries up north. Trucks
got the fragile fruit to. northern
markets much faster than
railroad.
"I had the experience to
make a trip to New York City
in 1934 as a truck driver's
helper," said Wainwright. Two
local men who drove for
Miller were B.B. Harley and
Alton Boles.
Refrigerated trucking
begins in 1935
In 1935 AlI Hartman began
installing refrigeration units on
trucks. With the .help of
carpenter Ben.Hall, they built
what may have been the first
refrigerated trucks in. the
United States.
They designed an ice bunker
with a fan to circulate the cold
air and keep the produce cold.
With the advent of refrigerated
trucking, movement of crops
to Jacksonville shipping in
refrigerated steamships almost
stopped.


"Things went pretty well
from then on. There was not a
lot of money in the area, but
everyone managed to eat,"
Wainwright said.
President Roosevelt started
his welfare program about this
time and that helped
enormously. Commodities,
staple and dry goods, ,and
shoes were shipped in by the
carload and distributed by the
Red Cross. (Wainwright's
mother was the chairman of
the local American Red Cross
chapter at the time).
Farming relied on
sweat, guesses, not
technology
Up until about the mid 30s
there were no tractors in the
county. The plowing was done
by horses and mules and a lot
of people with hoes, noted
Wainwright.
Insecticides were few and
fungicides -were unheard of.
Farmers had to rely on their
best guess and experience as to
what to do about diseases on
crops. "If we had not had the
type of people we did, I don't
know if we would still be in
existence or not," said
Wainwright. "You have to
have dedicated, hard working
people, or you wouldn't have
agriculture.
"The modern farmer has a
lot of problems, but it's
nothing compared to what our
forefathers 'had 'to-deal with:- I


don't think many farmers
could exist today, relying on
the old methods," he said.
Late 30s saw recovery
under way
1937-1938 saw things
beginning to look brighter. A
recovery was under way,
thanks to government
programs being used.
"The Civilian Conservation
Corps (CCC) was one of the
greatest things that.happened,"
said Wainwright. Some of the
CCC projects completed
locally were an addition to the
"old" courthouse (Now Santa
Fe College Andrews Center)
and building the health
department under the
supervision of Dr. W.E.
Middleton (Dr. Parks and Dr.
Biggs were the other two
doctors in the area at the time,
and Dr. Brown in Lawtey).
In 1938, under the
supervision of Commissioner
of Agriculture Nathan Mayo, a
state system of farmers
markets was started for the
purpose of grouping the
farmers together to sell their
crops so -larger supplies would
draw more buyers.
Farmers market built
The Works Progress
Administration (WPA) built
the Starke Farmers Market in
1938. Local merchants and
farmers had- raised enough

MARKET
Continued from Page 8B


money to buy 40 acres of land
where the Bradford County
Fairgrounds are now to donate
to the state for this purpose.
Local merchant F.F. Stump
(founder of Stump's
Department Store, a longtime
presence in Starke) was a
l."leader in this movement.
.."By this time agriculture in
the county was moving fairly
'well upward," said
Wainwright. Fordhook lima
beans were in major
production with hundreds of
:thousands of bushels leaving
.the area daily.
In the late 50s Wainwright
was asked to take over the job
as manager of the Farmers
Market. He had always farmed
and had begun farming on 1h
larger scale just prior to being
asked to manage the market.
Refrigerated trucks vast
improvement
Many local people bought
their own refrigerated trucks to
move produce and hired
drivers. The trucks replaced
Sthe railroads because they were
.faster and more reliable. "We
* called the route north to
,market the 'milk route,'" said
, Wainwright.
Before the advent of the
refrigerated truck, all of a
farmer's crop was loaded into
rail cars for shipping to one
destination. With a regular
,"milk route" farmers with
refrigerated trucks could sell
portions of their crop in
different .places and make
money even if the volume
buyers were not available.
Refrigerated trucks became
so common that the noise they
Made while running overnight
(to cool off the truck and get it
ready for loading) caused so
many local people to lose sleep
that an ordinance was passed
forbidding the trucks to be left
running overnight within the
-city limits.
Technology began helping
improve agriculture with more
than just refrigerated trucks.
-'Tractors came in .around tgie


mid 40s. Before the tractor,
there were three mule barns in
Starke (late 20s, early 30s) one
located across from the old
courthouse (now the Andrews
Center), one located at the
corner of what is now U.S. 301
and Jefferson Street and one
on Call Street next to where
the Florida Twin Theatre is
today. There also used to be a
horse trough at each end of
Call Street for watering horses.
War slowed farming
World War II came on and
agriculture in the area slowed
with so many farmers and farm
laborers being called into
service. A lot of the farm labor
also went to work at Camp
Blanding at prices farmers
couldn't match.
"At that time a carpenter or
skilled worker could earn $1
per hour (at Blanding), on the
farm, he could only earn $1.50
per day," said Wainwright, "A
lot of manpower left the farm
for a more lucrative position."
After the war, agriculture
improved once more, but was
nothing compared to prewar
days, said Wainwright.
Most farmers in the area
during these days had 5-10
acres in production. "Farms
weren't big after the. war, but
then we never had really big
farms in this area. A big farm
here was 20 acres, in other
areas, big farms are 2,000
acres," said Wainwright.


From the 30s into the 50s,
agriculture grew steadily,
although still handicapped by
the shortage of labor. In the
early 50s Wainwright served
as mayor of Starke and was
instrumental in getting a state
grant to build a railroad siding
at the Farmers Market.

Wainwright managed
Farmers Market
While managing the Farmers
Market, Wainwright was
instrumental in the decision to
stop selling strawberries in the
24-pint wooden crates of old
days, and start selling them in
the 12-pint flats used today.
As manager of the market,
he was able to secure new
buyers who would advance
money to farmers so that they
could produce the crops the
buyers wanted, generally
strawberries. After a great,deal
of hard work, local farmers
built strawberry production
back up to prewar volume.
"At one time over a two-
hour period in 1962, I
auctioned 120 loads of.
strawberries for growers," said
Wainwright.
In 1962 Wainwright left the
market to pursue his own
Interests, and continued to be
active in agriculture until his
retirement. He had been a
patron of the market since
1939.


Stephens celebrates

93rd birthday
Sarah Katharine Stephens, also a resident at
Parkside, was born on July 15, 1918, and will
celebrate her 93rd birthday Friday, July 15, at
Parkside Assisted Living in Starke at 2 p.m.
Stephens also invites friends and relatives to stop"
by for cake and ice cream.
Stephens was the manager of the cotton candy,
snow cone and candied apple operation at
Strickland's Landing for many years.
She taught a lot of employees good work practices
and was protective of the business by trying to keep
workers from eating all of Frow Strickland's profits
Stop by and wish her a happy birthday!


Migrant labor not the
answer
The decline in the
availability of economical
labor was the key to the
decline in agriculture in this
area, said Wainwright. "We
tried to get in migratory labor,
but federal restrictions made it
too hard for local farmers. The
laborers had to have living
quarters almost equal to a
major hotel and with our short
growing season, we just
couldn't stand to lay but that
kind of money for such short
periods of time," he said.
Agriculture continued to
.decline through the 60s he
said, although during the 60s
the advent of airfreight out of
the terminal in Jacksonville to
leading northern cities helped
some. At that time, air freight
cost only a little more than
refrigerated trucks.
Final blow
The final blow to agriculture
in the county came when the
Farmers Market burned in the
early 70s and the state of
Florida "dragged its feet" and
took two years before
replacing it, said Wainwright.
In the meantime, in Lawtey
they used an old shed to load
the strawberries in refrigerator
trucks, but without the market
to draw the growers, they went
elsewhere. The state finally
rebuilt the market at a third of
its original size, but by that
time there were few growers
left and fewer buyers, he said.
Farming has continued to
decline in the area for a
number of other reasons, as
well, said Wainwright. Few
young people are going into
farming these days, with other
jobs available. The ease with
which vegetables can be
bought from supermarkets
caused a decline in the
numbers of farmers growing-
freezer vegetables.


America is a nation with
many flaws, but hopes so
vast that only the
cowardly would refuse to

MOTO
continued from Page 1B

[The family traveled to
Washington Park, Ill., so that
Cole could compete in an area
qualifier at Archview MX Park
on March 19. He had to finish
in] the top seven to advance to
the Sunset Ridge Loretta Lynn
Regional Qualifier. Cole took
third on his stock bike and fifth
on his modified.
At the Sunset Ridge event,
Cole had to earn a top-six
finish to qualify for the Loretta
Lynn event, which was easily
accomplished on his modified
bike with the first-place finish.
Unfortunately, bike problems
led to only a 14i'-place finish
in the stock race.
You know your kid can do
it," Chrissy said, "but if the
bike isn't doing what it's
supposed to do, you just go out
there and fight the best you
can."
It's kind of similar to last
year when Cole qualified folk
the national championships at
Loretta Lynn Ranch on just
one of his bikes-his stock as
opposed to his modified this
year. The family hopes that's
where the similarities end.
.A week prior to the 2010
LOretta Lynn event, Cole
competed at the National
Motocross Association Grand
Nationals in Ponca City, Okla., .
and was doing well, having
gotten through the heat races
anti advancing to the main
events in all four classes" he
w4s competing in.
However, Cole would wind
up. in the hospital after a spill
when he and another rider
were fighting for first place on
the first corner of a race.
j"He got run over by about
10 or 12 bikes," Jimmy
Williams said.
iThe family spent quite some
tiine at the hospital, but Cole
was released and cleared to
resume riding.
|"As soon as we got out of
there, we loaded the camper in
Oklahoma and went over to
Tennessee to loretta's,"
Jimmy said. "Well, I knew
(Cole) had to be sore. He said
he wasn't, but I know he was."


Cole Williams


It was kind of an omen of
things to come. Cole wrecked
several times at the Loretta
Lynn event and got pinched
into a corner once and tangled
up in a banner.
Cole wound up finishing
38'th
"It was an experience last
year," Jimmy said. "It was a
hard-luck experience, -but it
was an experience. We know
what to expect this year."
The main' thing was that
Cole got to the national
championships last year after
trying to qualify for four years.
It was such a happy occasion
that after qualifying, Cole
jumped into the arms of his
trainer, Alvin Lopez of Lopez
MX School in Gainesville.
"Those kids making it that
first year-it's so
overwhelming," Chrissy said.
"Then they get (to the Loretta
Lynn nationals) and it's just so
scary because it's huge, it's the
best of the 'best and it's
intimidating. The rule of
thumb is your first yrar there
you're not going to do goqd."
Cole and his family hope
now he can qualify for the'\
Loretta Lynn event on a
consistent basis. Eventually,
Cole said he'd like to race
professionally 'when he's of
age. If he accomplishes that,
maybe he'll look back at the
time he rode a 'bicycle with
training wheels as the start of it
all.


Cole actually had a four-
wheeler when he was 4, with
his father telling him if he
could learn to ride it really
well, then maybe he could go
to a race.
"That's just kind of how it
started," Chrissy said.
Four-wheeler competitions
are .tough, though, Chrissy
said, and there aren't as many
races, which would require the
family to travel great
distances. Cole wanted to keep
racing, but the family said it
would have to be on-' something
else.
Enter the dirt bike.
"Dad said if I could just ride
a bicycle without training
Tvheels, I could get a dirt bike,"
Cole said.. "I think it was the
day after I tried it with no
training wheels."
Chrissy said Cole got his
first dirt bike the weekend
after the training wheels came
off of his bicycle. Cole said he
began competing in small,
local races at first, but was
hard pressed to remember
much about those early races
other than to say he wasn't
nervous about being in them.
Some parents might be
nervous about their children
competing in such a sport, but
Jimmy, who used to ride dirt
bikes as well when he was
young, said, "I've always been
led to believe whatever's going
to happen is going to happen.
If he's going to get hurt, he's
going to get hurt, whether he's
playing "baseball, riding
motocross or riding a bicycle."
To which Cole added, "I've
pretty much gotten hurt more
on a bicycle than a dirt bike."
Cole has had plenty of
bumps and bruises along the
way, but Chrissy said she
doesn't worry too much about
her son, especially now. He's
been riding so long now he
knows what he's doing out on
the track.
'"He's grown up doing it,"
Chrissy said. "It's his life."
It's a life that consists solely
of motocross as far as sports
and extracurricular activities
go. Jimmy said the one thing
he has stressed to Cole is that
whatever he does, he should
strive to be the best at it.
To do that, Jimmy believes
in focusing on one activity.
-"For somebody to do two
sports, there isn't enough
time," Jimmy said. "You. can
be half good at this and half
good at that, or pick on., and,
be great at it."
Cole could've played
baseball instead. He could've
even pursued golf. Jimmy said
his son"was a heck of a golfer
at one point, practicing every
day by hitting 200 balls in the
front yard.
In the end, it is his choice.
"We're just proud of him, no
matter what he does," Jimmy
said. "We've told him I don't
know how many times that if
(motocross) gets to be where
it's no fun anymore and you
don't like it, all you've got to
do is say, 'Dad, I don't want to
do this anymore.'"
Cole may focus all his
efforts on one sport, but he
must also -be aware of his
studies and maintain his grades
in order to be able to continue
participating in motocross. It's


RIGHT:
Williams has a
slight lead
among the
pack. BELOW
RIGHT:

bike on the -

Chrissy said. "He's got to have
an education, too. It's always
been, 'If you don't keep your
grades up, you're not racing.'
"For him, racing isn't a
given. He works for it."
Cole has certainly earned the
right to keep racing as a
straight-A student at. Cassells
Christian Academy. He has
made the A honor roll in first,
third and fourth grades, and the
A/B honor roll in secQnd
grade.
"We're real, real prood of
him for that," Chrissy said.
The staff at Cassells have
been cooperative in
accommodating Cole and his
family when it comes to
practicing for a race and
traveling for a race.
A/Bf they knor roll iwe'ren segoing
off, they give him his work,"
Jimmy said. "He doesit when
There out on the road and turns
it in when we get back. You
can't ask for anything better."
Cooperation can also be
found at the various tracks the
family travels to as well.
Jimmy said the tracks have a
family atmosphere in comes thich
most everyone looks out for
the best interest of all the
children.
"There are 40 kids on the
gate," Jimmy said. "If there's
one kid's bike that stalls or
something, you will have all
we're40 dadsthere trying to figures
out what it is. They're all
willing to do anything to gett
that kid in the race.
"They all want track see them
race. That's the.main thing."
If someone needs a part for
their bike; someone else is
willing to help out, Chrissy
said, adding that the mothers
are no different from the dads.
"You're everybody's mom,"
Chrissymmy said. "If a kid gets
scraped up and they're 10
campers away from their own
camper, you haul them inside
(yours) and put a Band-Aid on
them ."
When a race is over and he
happens to have race.on, Cole
said all his friends who also
competed will come up and
congratulate him.
And they're really friends.
Cole sees many of the same
Cole sees many of the same


children at,all of the races he
competes in and has gotten to
know them.
"He's got good friends who
live all over the country,"
Chrissy said.
If Cole sticks with
motocross and turns
professional, he will very
likely be competing against the
same people he's competing
against now, just like today's
professionals, are competing
against the same riders they
competed against as children.
The sport is really a lifelong
commitment, Chrissy said.
"The pro racers-they didn't
just meet at the track as'pros,"
she said. "They've been racing
against eachother for years
and years- apd-years and years.
You don't tfff t Re 'ige of 15
watch TV and decide, 'I want
to be a pro racer.' Those pro
racers have been riding since
they were 4, 5 or 6 years old."
For now, though, Cole is
only 10, and concentrating on
the upcoming AMA Amateur
National Championships- at
Loretta Lynn Ranch. When
asked what his expectations
are, he replied, "Top 10. Top
five."
Cole's parents are hoping
only that he performs up to his
capabilities.
"We don't hope for a
placing," Chrissy said. "We
just hope he can go out there
and show everybody what he's
got."
Jimmy said, "If he goes out
there and races like he
practices, the pieces will fall in


place. If we get beat, then we
know what we've got to work
on next year."
Cole has several sponsors
who have been tremendous in
terms of supporting his racing
over the years, including local-
businesses Knuckledraggers,
Lazenby Equipment Inc.,:
Showcase Advertising and:
Sporting Chance. However,
Cole and his family could
always use additional support
as competing in motocross can:
be costly. Jimmy said since
Cole began racing, he has
probably gone through 17
bikes, which cost
approxidtatelyl $4,500 each'.
During a race, Cole wears
safety equipment-and gear that
probably totals .$1,800, Jimmy
said.

sponsoring Cole or helping in
any way, please call 904-964-
