county y wants

its say on

redistricting ?
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
It turns out the county commissioners-
and school board members are not see-
ing eye-to-eye on redistricting. -
The school board voted to select
one of three proposed plans earlier this
month.'It is not a plan most county com-
'missioners feel they can support, how--
ever, so the commission will be takirig$
up the plans next month and voting offi
its own choice.
If the two boards cannot support I
single plan, then there will be separ.ate
voting districts for commissioners urid:
school board members'something t~ldt
supervisor of elections office was tr~i
ing to avoid.
Members of both boards attend'edf
meetings of a citizen~committee set up
to study the isusu and make redjistrictiing
recomrilendations, but the county com-
mission and school board h~ve not sat
down together to study the three plans
the committee recommended.
A workshop between the two boards
was scheduled prior to the Dec. 12
school board. meet-ing, but was called
off. Th n, in~ an emergency, unplanned
action, School Board Chairman Randy
Jones recommend the board select one
of the three plans, and the board voted
4-0 to do so. (School Board Member
Roman Ailvarez was absent )
Following the meeting Jones said
he felt the plan was supported by most
of the officials who attended the com-
inittee meetings, but the school board
would be open to further discussion at
the county's request.

Documents from each side of the
school district salary negotiations show
that the union and the district see things
from very different perspectives.
A December bargaining update from
the Bradford Education~ Association is
headlined "District's fund balance in-
creases again."
The newsletter goes on to discuss the
two meetings BEA repre~sentl~i\ es have
had with the district. H 'hlle BEA said
it is focused on compensation for all
bargaining unit employees, the school
district refused to dismiss salary issues

atBhstimanted to present a proposal
that included tw~o steps up the salary
:chedeul pdluupa s pecnt nre t
July I of the current year.


The district is not going to take up
salary discussions until after' an addi-
tional state funding calculation, which
pushes the next attempt at salary nego-
tiation to January.
According to BEA, the last salary
increase came under the prior superin-
tendent in the 2008 school year. This is
true even though its representatives say
the school district's fund balance grew
last year.
"Last year the district managed to in-
crease the fund balance by nearly $1.6
million while predicting doom, gloom
and imminent financial ruin," accord-


ing to the association's update. Com-
menting on the district finance direc-
tor's claim that the increase is due in
part to frugal spending, the newsletter
states, "We'd say no pay increase for
hard working employees in four years
takes 'frugal' to the extreme."
In addition to frozen salaries, manda-
Story contributions to the retirement sys-
tem and health insurance increases in
prior years are taking a toll on district
employees.
The state has mandated that pay be
tied to performance, as well. BEA was
told that if student data from the Florida


Department of Education were applied
to the new evaluation system, more
than 35 percent of the teachers in FCAT
grades would have received a "needs
improvement" or "unsatisfactory" rat-
ing. More than 20 percent would be
"unsatisfactory."
BEiA said it is pushing an agreement
that has been reached in other school
districts that no teacher would receive
less than "needs' improvement" as a
final rating during thetfirst year of the
new evaluation' system.

The head of Florida's Department of
Health, Dr. Frank Farmer, made a stop
at the Bradford County Health Depart-
ment Dec. 16.
Farmer, wvho took over the state agen-
cy in March, said he wanted to meet the

clients throughout Bradford and Union
counties.
"'As surgeon general I'm trying to get

scouts reach out to serviceman


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Last week's workshop on the
elusive interlocal agreement be-
tween the city of Starke and Brad-
ford County ended once again
without resolution, but both sides
promised to work more closely
an'd with better communication
in the future. .
Commissioners have nepeat-
edly brought the unsigned agree-
ment to the table when one side
or the other wanted something.
For example, the county wants
tt@ city to help pay for animal
cetrol. The city' has acquiesced
ot to covering a portion of the
s i~ter's utility bills. The city
\cbted the county to help fund
it) recreation programs. Facing
itdsinability to continue funding
status quo, the city had to
patize its programs.
dissatisfaction with the
outcomes of both of those situ-
a ns was raised as the county .
b dught a new issue to the table

1 ~ng money by providing.zon-
i~services to the city. Accord-
ie to County Mianager Brad
CTtr, the fees collected 'aren't
equgh to cover the county's
ca~ts, particularly when the city
Jrves collection of those fees.
~ during the workshop, the city
\fj asked to pay $33,525 al-
n I~ly for zoning in addition to
tS $24,085 requested for animal
c t~rol. Carter said the amount
v~sbased on the fair distribution

bi~rs' salaries. The city would

tions.'Chandler said staff winds
up doing more work because of
the differences, although Carter
said it was hard to quantify how
much time was spent on city
versus county zoning. Of late,
there has been little to do on ei-
ther front, but the employees still
have to be paid, Carter said.
Starke Commissioner Tommy
Chastain wanted to know if this
had been going on for some time,
why it wasn't brought up when
the city was putting together its
budget and could have lilanned
for the expense.
This launched the discussion
of the lapsed interlocal agree-
ment and raised confusion over
who was the last to sign the
document. The last.time it was
signed` was apparently in 2007,
and it expired a year later. City
Clerk Linda Johns said the city
commission had. voted to ap-
prove the agreement since then.
She said she sent the document
to the county, but never received
a response. She said she didn't
keep a copy. When Chastain
challenged her on that, she said
the agreement was no good with-
out signatures from both sides
anyway. .
Chimdler had said the city
failed to sign the agreement, and
Commissioner Carolyn Spooner
took issue with the word "failed,"
saying there simply hadn't been
an acceptable agreement reached
by both boars,d~.
City Comnmissioner Travis
Woods said it may be the case
now that the county is subsidiz-
ing city zoning costs, but he's
been around a while and there
was a time when the opposite
was true--fees from city zoning


that revenue.
"This formula wotild provide a
fair reimbursement regardless of
activity levels or frequent waivers
of fees by the city," Carter said.
This new proposed arrangement
was included in the-latest draft
of the lapsed interl'ocal agree-
ment, which also covers animal
control, building inspections and
services, and restates a shared
commitment on fire and rescue
calls that is already covered in
a mutual aid agreement between
the city an'd county. (The boards
also have a separate agreement
on emergency dispatch services
from the county call center.)
Courity Chairmain Ross Chan-
dler said the fact that the city has
waived thousands of .dollars in
fees for multiple zoning changes
has left the zoning office--reve-
nue forr which is fee based--run-
ning aat a deficit. City commis-
sioners, eventiially pointed out
that the city sponsored mimerous
zoning~and land use'amendment
applications for property owners
in order to correct: category er-
rors on the maps. The county has
dole~ the same, but still had to
pay its employees. When the city
waived its fees, i't did not slbsorb
that cost. -
Chandler said if the city was
responsible for its own zoning
'office, it couldn't be run for the
$33,000 the county was request-
ing
Serving Starke, which has dif-
ferent zoning regulations than the
county,.was difficult for experi-
enced staff. Two new staff mem-
bers-aie now running- the office
and have a lot to learn even with-
out the complications of Starke's
unique lan" development regula-


were subsidizing the county's
costs.
Starke Operations Manager
Ricky Thompson said just as the
county is losing money on zon-
ing, the city of Starke was losing
money providing recreational
programming that wasn't sup-
ported financially by the county
commission even though 80
percent of the participants came
from outside the city limits.
Chandler responded by say-
ing the county has had to pretty
much shoulder the cost of animal
control, and even ceased asking
other municipalities for their


.share when the city of Starke ne-
glected to pay its share. Milyor
Danny Nugent tried to argue,
however, that city residents pay
county taxes, in part to' help pay
for county services like animal '
control .
Chandler said they were "beat- ~~
ing a.dead horse." There- is a
history of inequitable distribu-
tion of costs, such as when the
city pledged sales tax revenue to
help pay for construction of the
jail, but] that contribution ended
before the jail was p id off, he
said.
The counity is doing those


things, that the state requires it to
do, said Chandler, and it is trying
to work toward an equitable mn-
terlocal agreement. He said both
sides should: have been working
toward updatedc and fair interlo-
cal agreements all along. Neither
side wealta.fg treat the other un-
fairly, he said, and both. sides are
struggling to get things done.
If the city has a better idea for
eliminating the zoriing deficit,
that's fine, Chandler said.
N~ugent said the city comnmis-
sion would take some time to
come up with some ideas, and
both sides agreed to meet again.

John Cooper, and Vaughan both
felt having large population dif-

explaining that when BEA pre-
sented no new proposals in writ-
ing at the first meeting as re-
quired by the contract, then no
new proposal were accepted at
the second meeting. The district
does, however, intend to negoti-
ate compensation once fundingg
sources are assured."
District representatives also
said they explained to BEA how
the fund balance had increased
byl $1.6 million during the 2011
school year. First, the number of
students remained stable instead
of~decreasing as expected, which
increased state funding by more
than $605,000. The district also
received more thali $627,000 in
federal funding for jobs and held
onto that money as directed by
the state so it could be used to re-

More thanr$366,000 that went
into the fund balance was. attrib-
uted to frugal spending.
While the find balance may
have acetmulated more than
$1.6 million by the end of the
2011 fiscal cycle, the district
says more than $2.4 million in
state funding was cut for 2012.
And while the district is wait-
ing for the third FEFP calculation
Before discussing compensatiori,
it is not expecting good news.
DOE has warned the district to
expect cuts as FEFP funds are
prorated to makeup for a state-
wide underestimation of the stu-
dent `population.
"Bradford Cou~nty's FEFP
funding has already been cut
over $5.3 million in the last four
years," according to the district
bargaining update.
In addition to discussing sala-
ries, BEA says it also has propos-
als related to members' rights at
districtwide meetings, leave for
BEA business and a trainsporta-
tion issue.

Longtime P.E. teacher Williams set to retire from BMS


trucking business, which led
Williams to take a trip to
Florida to dispatch some of her
father's trucks. That took her
to Archer.
The Florida weather and
sand, as opposed to the red
clay in Mississippi,' appealed
to Williams.
"That's where I fell in love
with Florida," she said. "I told
my dad it's where I wanted to
live. I went back to Mississippi
and resigned. I came to Florida
and got a job at Williston
Middle School."
Williams taught in Williston
for more than two years, but
changes in regard to the P.E.,
music and art programs at the
time had her looking for
another job. She knew a
woman in Gainesville who
worked for the Alachua
County School Board and who
helped her find an operting at
Bradford Middle School.
After brief stints at- two
different schools, Williams
found her home, staying at
BMS for more than.30 years.
She never envisioned she
would've stayed that long.
Il.made it by the grace of
God," Williams said. 'I just
pray and hope~ the rest (of the
teachers to follow) will be as
successful as I have been."
SSpirituality ~is a big ,part of
Williams' life. She gives credit
to God for everything she has
accomplished and leans on him
through th~e down and trying
times. Several Bible verses are
important to her in her day-to-
day life, including Psalms
l2l:1-2 ("1 will lift up mine
eyes unto the hills from
whence cometh my, help; my
help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and
earth") and Proverbs 3:5-6
("Trust in the Lord with all
thine heart and lean not unto
thine own understanding; In al~l


thy ways, acknowledge him,
and he shall direct they
paths") .
Williams, who attends
Mount Olive Primitive Baptist
Church in Gainesville, said, "I
have a real spiritual belief that
God can get you through'
anything." She can look back
at her life, not only raising five
children but working several
jobs to support them and give
them what they needed.
Williams' husband was a:
manager at a~ Winn Dixie, and ~
it was hard for him to go out'
and work at another job.
"I had to make a lot of~
sacrifices," she said.
All of Wilhiams' children
went to college and all are
living successful lives. All are
married but one, she said,
adding, "I'm' just waiting Ifor
God to answer my prayer."
In light of her spiritual life,
Sit was gratifying for Williams
to have been involved with
starting a Fellowship of
Christian Athletes chapter at'
BMS. She was also involved in
the formation of the school's
interscholastic sports program,:
which evolved into joining the
Suwannee Middle School
Athletic Conference.

Williams coached the
volleyball and girls' basketball
teams--she also helped coach
track and field at Bradford
High School--and won Sevefail
conference championships,
some of- which capped
undefeated seasons.
"Most every year I coached,:
I either was a runner-up or:
won the SMA;C tournament,"-
Williams said.
Competing for
championships and. winning
trophies is nice, but Williams
said the sports were also a way

BY CLIFF SMEL;LEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Annie Williams may have
.presented a tough exterior to
the students she had at
.Bradford Middle School, but
'that was because inside she
harbored a love for children
and wanted to do her best to
help them as they matured
through life
That's something Williams
has done for 33 years at
Bradford Middle School and
for 37 years overall. She will
miss those opportunities to
impact young lives as she is set
to retire at the end of January.
"For the children's sake, I'll
be kind of sad," she said.
'Williams, who taught P.E.,
and health, said she knows that
students have viewed her as a
teacher who was hard on them,
but students simply got from
Williams what she gave to her
biological children. Williams
and her husband, Joe, have
five grown children who all
thought the same thing when
they were growing up--that
Williams was mean.
"I was kiid' of hard-nosed,"
Willliams admitted. "I guess
the children would say it was
mean, but I considered it tough
love--being firm and being
consistent with what you say."
'In the pnd, though,
Williams' children and many
former students- have thanked
her as adults for her tough,
demanding ways. They
realized she cared and realized
she had some part'in helping
them become successful in
life. .
More importantly, they came
to' realize there was something
beneath that tough, demanding
exterior.
"Some people judge me
from the outside, but they
know my heart," Williams
said.' "Y~ou can't judge people

from their outer.appearance" j
Williams, of course, can
thank her parents for the
values they mnstilled in her
which she in turn tried to instill
in her students. That desire to
see her students do right,
though, can also be chalked up
to the entire Mississippi
community in which she grew
up. Everyone knew each other
and all held .children
accountable for what.they did.
As Williamls described, if she
was caught misbehaving by
someone in her home town,
that person would think
nothing of chastising her.


It was indeed a village
raising a child, Williams said,
referencing the African
proverb that was popularized
by Hillary Rodham Clinton..
It's something. that's lacking in
today's world, Williams said.
"I'm not saying people don't

pins, etc., for a new captain's:
position that the commission
was unaware of. Mr. Banlcb
purchased his own fire chief
jacket and I was unaware that
he made this purchase. I do 1~i
know why he made ttl 8
~purchase from his perso il
funds. I have never denied h~i
any purchase.
4) In regards to the cj
manager's vehicle, i ily
intentions were not to purchjjt
a new vehicle during ot~iy
employment with the city. At
three separate occasions, st~~
members had the vehicle~
question break down on themn.
The car is 10 years old anid
currently needs a major repi ,
La transmission replacemoti.
T'he new vehicle was budge~ted
this fiscal year and, thanks to
our purchasing agent, she wias
able to 'get a 2012, leather
interior, more gas-efficient
car- with a savings in the
budget of approximately
$4,000.
5) The city of Lake Butler
and the citizens of Union


portion of .the $695i00
assistance awarded due tb
tragic events occurring in their
lives. The city manager isela
direct representative of the
citizens. My goal is to bera
steward to the citizens and i
am in a unique position 6~f
service (non-paid) on the Sta~te
Executive Board 6f: t iie
Department of Corrections
Foundation as its treasurer.
In conclusion, these are
tough times. Cities are being
forced to tighten their belts
while continuing to meet the
needs of the citizens. The
budget is a financial~ pian th~at
is the framework to operate
within. A budget was n~eve)
intended to be absolute; the&
are too many factors affecting
it. One must monitor activiti<$
daily to ensure that the city
remains within its means.
It is noted that there w\as no
review\ or clarificatidin ofl thC
issues published by trhe Ulnion
Country Times. There \\as
broad discussion on all arcits
which w\as recordcc.dl: Th'
section on the fire chief' w\ai
intentionally, ~skewe ,o.hj
position. TIhere !tds no d~!rilhjnp
w\hatsoever to be falir or
impartial to tlie ,ol:irr't or ii
writer. My' cha;rablrc ~ aii@
m lives w\ere~ eustioned: ~hI
orchestrated. Staff \\as prese~nt
as a show\ of force and they~
have expressed their disdlairl
for the position the \ nre puti
in. I hope that in the f u!ture.
Ms. C'lark would seek~
impartiality and fairness inl her
publications.

discussed our responsibilities
and she told me she was fair
and impartial and would not
print articles concerning the
city until we had an
opportunity to review so that
\ve would not be blind-sided
by any articles that were
published. It is noted that all of
the meetings are recorded and
minutes are provided which
are accesible to the' public
req uest. I was somewhat
amaz'ed at the article, "City,
Fire Chief Have Words Over
Budget Issues." Not only. was
the article biased, but it was
inflammatory and self-serving
for whatever reason.
I wish to submit the
following information:
1) The issue was never
whether or not Chief Banks
needed new boots. The whole
issue was that I requested
direction from the city


Department's adherence to the
city purchasing policy and
procedures that went -into
effect this year. I held several
purchase requests and
requested on three separate
occasions that Mr. Banks come
to my office to -discuss my
concern with him. His
response was, "Are you asking
me as a city employee or as the
fire chief?" This .was an
inappropriate response by Mr-
Banks to me as the city
manager. Mr. Banks did not
feel that I, as the city manager,
had any authority to hold him
accountable for his
expenditures, as he always
stayed within his budget (this
is true). However, I am
responsible to the
commissioners for all city
revenue and expenditures,
2) The statement that I had
not personally made contact
wvith Mr. Banks concerning the
issue is true. Again, it is noted
that on three separate
occasions, I requested Mr.
Banks in my office. I have
handled other city issues with
him on several occasions
between my requests. TIhe
issue remained that he w\as not
going to discuss w\ith me an
purchase requests because he
ddt iot cnsidri ra ~ rnd m
to the city commission for
direction and clarification of
mii and Mr. Banks'
responsibilities .
3) There are issues that I and
the ci13 commission must be
aw\are of before purchases are
made. TIhere are purchase
requests held that involved
purchases of` uniforms, badges,


Maturity is achieved when a person accepts life as full
of tension.

Cody Hankerson defeated
both opponents he faced as the
Bradford wrestling team
defeated Interlachen 35-15 and
lost 32-30 to Raines in its first
home match of the season on
Dec. 15.
Tre Edmond and Devin
Paulk also went 2-0 against the
two schools, but both of
Edmond's wins were the result
of forfeits, while one of
Paulk's wins was by forfeit.
Interlachen forfeited the
138-pound class, which gave a
victory to Bradford's Austin
Wilson to start that match.
Jarraid Forsyth lost a close 9-7
affair in the 145 class,
followed by Hankerson's 19-3
win in the 160 class. Another
forfeit by Interlachen in the
170 class gave a victory to
Edmond .
Paulk recorded a pin in 36
seconds in the 195 class to
give the Tornadoes a 23-9 over
the Rams. Interlachen forfeited
the 220 class, which gave a
victory to Brent Kebby.
The Tornadoes got off to a
fast start against Raines, with
the Vikings forfeiting the 170,
182 and 195 classes, which
gave wins to Edmond, Dakota
Rice and Paulk. Hankerson
opened the match by pinning
his opponent in 1:10.
Hankerson's win and the three
forfeitures put Bradford up 24-
