Many of the 201 l's most memorable
stories came from law~ enforcement and
the courts. The year began with a tragic
headline. A man facing a divorce he did
not want shot himself in Raiford.

child in Virginia to send nude images of
himself to Howell. The Virginia youth,
who communicated with Howell in a
cell phone chat room, sent the Starke
man around 20 photos in exchange for
a $200 prepaid phone card.
After Bradford Sheriff's investigators
confronted Howell with his correspon-
dence to and from Virginia, he admitted
to receiving the images.
According to court documents, the
59-year-old also tried to transmit child
pornography through his cellphone to
another individual after a prospective
recipient sent to H-owell a text message
requesting "'good photos."

Rhymer Rhuebin

guilty to attempted

In September, the U.S. Marshals Ser-
Svice arrested Lucas in Gainesville.
According to a sheriff's office report,
the victim told investigators Lucas held
her at 798 Pratt Street for most of the
summer. She claimed Lucas kicked
and beat her, and also cooked cracked
cocaine on a stove while she watched.
Lucas' drug charges stemmed from
an Aug. 19 DUI checkpoint the Brad-
ford Sheriff's Office conducted near the
fairgrounds. After that stop,- a deputy

continue to mow and maintain cem-
etery property."
Just after sunset, Moore, along with
other church members, addressed a
gathered crowd from a temporary stage,
not far fr~jin S.R. 100.
The church's youth minister Josh
Reinken read from the 23rd Psalm, Bill
McRae led the group in "Away in the
Manger," and Anne Haynes explained
the church's grief care ministry,
Event organizer Meaghan Parmenter
also addressed the crowd.
"This community never ceases to
amaze me," she said. "Every time I am
here in Bradford Countj,, it's something
special,a smile that brings you comfort,
somebody to hug you that you haven't
seen in a while."
Carolyn Eaves, treasurer for the
Crosby Lake Cemetery Association,
said the event has raised over $1,500 so
far. However, workers in the church's
office said they still have money to for-
ward to the association and added that
contributions continue to roll in,
The treasurer said that although the
money from the fundraiser will help
the association through its immediate
financial crisis, additional support is
needed to sustain the cemetery.
Eaves said that changing patterns in
the funeral industry and financial pres-
sures on families brought on by the
recession have hit cemetery revenues
hard.
"People are just not buying plots


Led by the congregation of Starke's
First United Methodist Church, volun-
teers fanned across Crosby Lake Cem-
etery Thursday to honor the memories
of Bradford County's departed souls in
the 161-year-old graveyard. The volun-
teers spent most of the afternoon plac-
ing luminaries in front of headstones,
and along the pathways of the park.
Mike Moore, Riastor of' the church,
said he was pleased with the turnout.
"It's been quite a project this after-
noon as we have had hundreds of people
come out and light candles in memory
of their loved ones," he said.
Moore added that his parishioners
had another motive to walk between
the graves near the Northeast shore of
Crosby Lake.
"It's something we do in the Meth-
odist Church called salty service," he
said. "With salty service, we reach out
and bridge a gap between the church
and the community. We can come to-
gether in one common belief and one
common cause for the benefit of the
com unityy"
The primary aim of the event how-
ever, was to raise money for the cem-
etery .
"Crosby Lake Cemetery needs funds
to maintain the perpetual care for this
property," Moore explained. "We sold
luminaries for tonight so that we can

like they used to," she said. "It used
to be that the head of a family would
purchase a big plot for the entire fam-
ily. Now people are just buying one at
a time." '
She also explainedtihat the propensity
away from burials to toward cremations
has hurt Crosby Lake's finances.
Cemetery officers tried to react to the
crematory trend by building a mauso-
leum with niches for cremated remains.
However sales qf those spaces fell be-
low expectations.
Eaves said that people who choose
cremation should still consider perma-


nent memorials for the benefit t of future
generations.
That was a sentiment echoed by Par-
menter, when she talked to the crowd
gathered beside S.R. 100.
Looking toward the field full of
flickering lights, the 26-year-old said,
"When I look out here it's just so beau-
tiful. I have family who is here and I'm
sure all of you do as well."
She then recalled her feelings as she
considered her loved ones at the cem-
etery .
"It's just something deep inside that's
very special to you."

front of her after saying he did not want
the divorce and telling her goodbye.
In mid-January, 25-year-old James
Gerald Carter of Gainesville was ar-
rested for the Thanksgiving 2010 shoot-
ing of a man in Lincoln ~City. He was
sentenced to life in prison after being
convicted by a Bradford County jury
in November. Carter's sister, Toccara

wvith peijury for having lied to protect

In February, AT&T employees Jason
D. Wisham, 29, of Palatka died from
injuries he received wvhen he was hit
by a drunk driver while"\working road-
side on S.R. 100. Driving the van that
hit Wisham was David M. White, 4t9,

sociation.
On June 25, a Bradford Coun-
ty correctional office, Charles
GreggHendrix, was arrested for
.shooting his girlfriend, another
employee of the. agency, in the
face. He told investigators the
shooting was accidental and-hap-
pened while he was cleaning his
handgun. The victim told a dif-
ferent story, saying Hendrix was
drunk and violent, and shot her
during an argument.
In a case that made national
headlines, a Bradford County
coach was arrested July 6 after
throwing a punch that killed a
man at a casino in Las Vegas.
Benjamin Hawkins was on vaca-
tion with family when a verbal
confrontation with racial over-
tones turned violent. Hawkins is
black and the victim, 46-year-old
John Allen Massie, was white.
A first hearing on the case has
reportedly been pushed to early
2012, meanwhile friends and
family have been raising funds
for Hawkins' travel and legal ex-
penses.
An armed robber roaming city
streets was arrested Aug. 18 af-
ter he held up multiple victims at
gunpoint. Marcus Terrell Whit-
field, 23, of Ocala allegedly ap-
proached victims while riding a

for allegedly holding a teenage
girl against her will over a period
of several months during which
time she was exposed to illegal
activity, including drug-related
crimes. He was sentenced to pro-
bation.
Tracy Austin Hall stood
before a judge in October and
admitted to having killed his
sister, Pamela K. Hall, in 2003.
A former cold case, the sheriff's
office began looking into Pamela
Hall's disappearance based on
information received in drug
investigation. Her remains were
found outside of a cemetery in
Graham in March 2010, and her
,brother was later arrested for the
crime. He was sentenced to 20
years mn prison.

The year in
gOVermment
In January, the Lawtey City
Council supported a motion by
outgoing councilman Wayne
Massey to request information
from the sheriff on the cost of
providing law enforcement ser-
eenes a ri the ci yhe MLssys ha
lice Department and: its traffic
law enforcement. Another outgo-
ing council member and the only
one to vote against Massey's re-
quest, Carlton Jones, complained
the city clerk's office had failed
comply with his public records
request. The request was for doc-
umentation of discussions held
with individual board members
outside of public meetings re-
garding proposed expenditures.
Three people qualified for the
District 1 school board seat. Ar-
chie Kittles won the special elec-
tion to replace retiring school
.board member Jesse Moore. A
first election in February resulted
in a runoff between Kittles and
Sheila Fayson Cummings, but
the runoff in March was too close
to call, triggering an automatic
recount. Ultimately, Kittles came
out on top by just one vote.
Testing found no contamina-
tion at the Edwards Road Rec-
reation Park and the former
Riverside Uniform Building that
the Starke City Commission was
considering purchasing as a home
for its recreational programming.
The commission ultimately de-
termined that.it could neither: af-
'ford th'iPiie 6fjiey ~acquiisition nor
its recreation program, but the
city did have to purchase acreage
on the backside of the property
where it had used grant funds to
expand its park. Research showed
the city did not own the land.
The county had been asked for
firiancial support to keep the ree-
reation program going based on
:the number of non-city residents
who were. using the program.
The .county commission never
warmed to that or to a request
.from a group of local business-
men who wanted the commission
to: help fund 'the cost of an eco-
nomic development person.
S.The city followed. Operation
Manager Ricky Thompson's
suggestion to privatize recreation
and eliminate the project direc-
tor's position to help balance the
budget. The city sought propos-
als and eventually decided to al-
low two groups to take over por-
tions of the recreation programs.

In March, the county removed
Richard Shirk from the position
of volunteer fire chief in
Hampton. No background check
had been performed on Shirk,
but calls to the sheriff's office
alerted the county to disturbing
information in his past, including
the'dissemination of photographs
of a partially nude crash victim
while employed in Umatilla.
Stephen Kyle Crews was
sentenced to 33 years in prison
for child sexual abuse and
possession of child pornography.
The Bradford County resident
was a correctional officer
working for the Baker County
Sheriff's Office when the abuse
came to light. Crews pleaded no
contest to charges that esxuly
abused a young female over a
six-year period in Virginia, Glen
St. Mary and Starke.
U.S. Attorney Robert O'Neill
announced that Edward Lee
Dugger, 64, of Gainesville, had
pleaded guilty to conspiracy .to-
p kickbacks to former Secretary
ofthe Florida Department of
Corrections, James (Jimmy)
Vernon Crosby Jr. and another
former high-ranking FDOC
official, Allen Wayne Clark.
Dugger's sentencing has been
moved to January 2012 to allow
him time to undergo a surgical
procedure. Another man who
also pleaded guilty, Joseph
Arthur Deese of Fort White, is
also scheduled for sentencing
at that time. Both men admitted
to creating a canteen company
in 2004 and in return for the
contract to provide those services,
they agreed to pay kickbacks
to Crosby and Clark as well as
to former Keefe Commissary
executives. ,
Dorothy Underhill, 77,. died
when her home on Morgan Road

the electrical fire began in the

A Jacksonville man dl.
Allen Shultz, 53, died w~hen his
experimental 'pl~ime crasled in
Bradford County in late April.
The same week, law enforcement
caught ud with a young suspect
in a gruesome Marion County
murder. Michael Shane Bargo
Jr., 18, was captured fleeing from -
a home on C.R, 225. He was one
of five .peopl~e charged with the
murder of a 15-year-old boy. All
of tilose charged were 20 years
old or younger.
Around the same time, one of
the year's most disturbing crimes
came to light. Doyce Dean Griff-
is was accused of watching and
filrikihg women and 'girls wlo
paid to use a tfanning ~bed in the
farm ori his property. In addition
to GriffiSt-computer, the sheriff's
office seized four large boxes of
VHS tapes, more than 30 8 mm
tapes,41 DVDs and two memory
car~ds. In September, Griffis was
indicted by a federal grand jury
for seven counts of production of
child pornographyl, two counts of
receiving child pornography and
one count of possession of child
pornography.

shrubs. Several native flowering
perennials have been planted in
front of these young tre~es. There
are ornamental grasses, such as
m~uhly grass and love grass, and
the beach sunflowers are thriv-
ing,
The peak season for these
plantings is autumn. It was im-
pressive last fall. This~year the
plants were larger and the flow-
ering was even more spectacular.
The unwelcome dollar weed is
disappearing, being choked out
by the native plants.
Kroll said the native species
do not need fertilizer or water-


ing like imported ornamentals do
because they are adapted to the
soil and climate of north Florida.
This not only saves the home-
owner money and time, but these
plants provide a better habitat
for wildlife than non-natives do.

lem, Douglas said if a city and
county employee w~ere hired at
the same time, paid the same
amount of money over the years,
retired together and died at the
same time, the city employee
would earn mort than $400,000
more during retirement than the
county employee.
The cost of power from the
city began to fall. It wvas not re-
duced rates but improvements to
the system that were credited for
the lower electric bills as well as
the city commission's cost stabi-
lization program, which returned
money set aside to help smooth
bills to customers at the end of
the fiscal year. -
Sewer rates, however, in-
creased by more than 22 percent
in October in an effort to help the
wastewater system finally pay
for itself.
Regardless of lower electric
bills, the local legislative delega-
tion voted in October to support
a resolution calling for a state au-
dit of the city based on questions
regarding its utility bills. School
Superintendent Beth Moore has
been particularly vocal about the
additional money the school dis-
trict has to pay Starke for power
when compared to what it would
pay another provider. She prom-
ised again in November to con-
tinue fighting for a lower electric

biStarke began spending funds
from a $250,000 energy block
grant. A solar demonstration
project was installed at the fire


station and dedicated in Novem-
ber. Money was used to provide
energy efficiency audits for a
number of local businesses as
well. The city was also slated
to replace the climate control
system at city hall, undertake a
survey of the electric distribu- .
tion system and make impor-
tant upgrades at the wastewater
treatment plant. Commissioners
became concerned that with deadline looming in. 2012 time
was running out to get all of these
projects completed.
Facing a $400,000 deficit in its
2012 budget, the city commis-
sion asked the police department
for further cuts in August, but
,Police Chief Jeff Johnson said he
couldn't do it without cutting per-
sonnel. In the end, the commis-
sion closed the deficit as it had
in the past--by transferring rev-
enue from- utilities. The amount
transferred was significantly less
than prior years, however due to .
cuts that were made to the police
department and the elimination
of most recreation expenses.
Bradford County reported a
budget balanced at $33.3 mil-
lion, in spite of the impact of .
falling property values on the tax
revenue. County Clerk Ray Nor-
man said expenses were met us-
ing fund balances, without which
the county would have had to cut

ser le Stdrketk the unprec-
edented step of including its $6.5
million in reserve funds as line
items in its budget, the county


said there was no reason for its
nearly $23 million in unspent
money to be accounted for in its
budget since this is reserve fund-
ing the county does not plan to
spend.
Earlier in the year, contrac-
tors complained the level of ser-
vice they had come to expect in
Bradford had declined since the
decided against hiring a replace-
ment building official and instead
contracted forthose services with
Clay County. The fee-based of-
fice wasn't generating the funds
to support a full-time building
official, according to County
Manager Brad Carter. Carter said
larger county's also have multi-
ple people with specific areas of
expertise, and it was difficult to
find a,single individual with aill
of that knowledge.
While there was still no new
building official by year's end,
the county did have a new zon-
ing director and clerk, Randy
Andrews and Sally Armstrong.


'The county awarded the se-
nior center construction contract
to M&R Construction in Febru-
ary for more than $433,000. The
grant-funded project then ran
into a stumbling block when the
Starke City Commission post-
poned approval of the county's
site plan citing concerns about
traffic volume. Once the county
received its permit, the build-
ing was qui kly erected, and by
year's end, /taff was preparing
an open hou e for January 2012.
A citizens review of the coun-
ty land development regulations
resulted in changes that eased
regulation on smaller businesses
and rural land, and it allowed for
churches and schools as a mat-
ter of right on land were previ-
ously a special exception would
have been required. The county
manager was also authorized to
issue temporary use permits in
hardship cases when the land use
requested would not create ex-
cessive incompatibility.


Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District held a public
meeting to discuss the fate of the:
Sampson Lake control structure. -
Residents were told no decision
had been made and that the pur-
pose of the meeting was to gather '
public input, but one solution the
district has considered is removal
of the mechanical gates and in- '
stallation of a fixed structure to
control lake and river levels.
A railroad repair project dis-
rupted traffic on U.S. 301, in
May, but other than fundlilg to
engineer and begin acquiring
right of way for the Starke by-
pass, the Florida Department of
Transportation told the county
nothing has been set aside yet
to begin construction. One road
project expected to relieve~ con-
gestion downtown moved for-
ward in September. A second
portion of Southeast 144th Street
was paved leaving only one seg-

Look over the sports programs
and worked with the city to de-
velop a contract for the use of the
Edwards Road fields.
Concerned Citizens of Brad-
ford County took over the city's
after-school program, and had
more than 120 students signed up
as the new school year got under
wa3. The city commission, how-
ever, had eliminated an annual
donation to Concerned Citizens
'from its budget and promised
no financial assistance, causing
the group to rely on fundraisers
to support its operations. By the
end of the first grading period,
dozens of students found them-
selves on the honor roll and were
rewarded for their success by
program organizers and the Phat
Ryders Motorcycle Club.
Starke continued to pay a'n
outrageous amount for its retire-
ment system. Several options
that would affect costs and ben-
efits were discussed--including
changing the retirement age,
lowering final benefits and re-
questing contributions from-
members of the plan--but no ac-
tion was taken. The fact that the
city pays around 80 cents into
the retirement system for every
goa gt tpesdtsh itsalsary was
financial audit, as was Starke's
dwindling fund balance, a result
of the fact that the general and
recreation funds were not gen-

nearly 200 local and visiting edu-

the statewide draw of the boot
camp is the fact that Bradford
students are making friends and
learning with students around the

At the same time the district
worked to improve its onling

schools ended in part because of
teacher opposition, but primar-
ily because of the additional cost
that would be involved. The dis-
trict was looking at expanding
the number of periods as a strat-
egy to help improve the gradua-`
tion rate, which had declined in
the prior year. At the same time,
more rigorous graduation stan-
dards handed down by the state
began to be phased in, including
end-of-icourse examinations. -
Overall', FCAT writing scores
improved. Third-graders taking
the FCAT 2.0 for the first time
scored higher on reading, but low-
er on math. FCAT 2.0 is aligned
with new academic content stan-
dards known as the Next Genera-
tion Sunshine State Standards.
Students enrolled in grades 3-10
were tested in reading, and stl-
dents enrolled in grades 3-8 were
tested in math~. End-of-course as-

ing after the school board moved
forward in approving a plan
county commissioners said they

the Contract, which was finally
approved in August. Now Jan-
echek is moving forward with its
proposal to take landfill gas-
the natural result of decompos-
ing waste-arid put into the lo-
cal pipeline so it can be used to
generate electricity for projects
on the west: coast. The project is
expected to earn more than $8
million for the landfill over 15
years.
The landfill board was alarmed
in March to~first hear of Alachua
County recycling plans it feared
would further himp un ho i g

waste officials explained that the
plans played into the county's
goal to achieve colltrol over its
solid waste stream so that third
parties could no longer flivert
waste from the county's transfer
station,. a phenomenon that re-
duces revenue for both Alachua
County and the New River land-
fill.
The association approved a
$7.7 million budget, which was
dowri nearly 31 percent because
of landfill construction costs that
had been met the year before.
The association also decided
against approving recommended
yard waste: fees at this time.

chased many Apple devices and
taught teachers how to incorpo-

S~tarke Elementary was named
an A school again when grades
were released in July. The district
had three B schools: Southside,
Lawtey and Bradford Middle
School. Hampton Elementary fell
to a C. The district was still wait-
ing for Bradford High's grade at
the end of the year, but gradua-
tion rate data released in Deem-
ber showed that the graduation
rate was back up to 71.6 percent
following a one-year decline.
Students weren't the only ones
facing tougher scrutiny. The dis-
trict also began working on the
state requirement to evaluate
teachers based on student perfor-
mance.
The district honored its finest
employees with a dessert social.
Teachers of the Year included
Dustin Adams, Donna Tew,
Christine Guggenheimer, Malie
Appling, Christine Wells, Erin


Waters and Ivonne Addison.
School-Related Employees of
the Year were Donna Massey,
Gerald 'Smith, Debra Bloomer,
Kristina Steffan, Layne' Stone,
Donna Tolleson, Debble Rosier
and Charlie.Tomlinson.
The Bradford County Educa-
tion Foundation, which' helps
fund education 'through a vari-
ety of fundraisers, set out to help
raise its profile. It also undertook
a reinvention of its business part-
ner program to provide benefits
to those businesses that invest in
local education.
Going into the new school
year, BHS Principal Doug Tho-
burb was replaced with longtime
district employee Rick Stephens.
Replacing Stephens at Hampton
and Brooker~ elementary schools
were Brenda Donaldson 'and
Walton Dewaine Khight, a new-
comer to the district.

population has been exceeding

proval of additional positions,

wide, meaning the state would
'likely have to spread the fund-
ing it approved between a larger
number of students.

state cut by $2.4 billion, but ther
Bradford Education Association
pressed the district to discuss sal-
ary increases. The last pay raises
came in the 2008 school yearl
according to BEA, even though
the district's fund balance had
grown. District .representatives
explained that fu~nd balance, say-
ing it was to in used .to offset-
,budget cuts and adding the dis-

talk about salaries aftep- a revised
state funding calculation. -


sessments are being phased in at
the high school level, where they
will replace the F'CAT. Passing .
these end-of-course tests will
eventually be required in order to
graduate.
Tougher standards may have
tripped up the older grades, as
overall scores for reading were
down in the fourth, seventh and
'10h grades, and scores for math
were down in fourth, fifth, sev-
enth and 10*h grades. Grades six
and eight did, however, post
the same or improved scores in
both subject areas. Eighth grade
also improved in FCAT science,
though the science scores were
down in fifth and 11*h grades,

is forgiven each year, and no pay-
back or interest will be required
as long as the homeowners con-
tinue to reside in the home and
comply with the award require-
ments.
An award can be used bring
a home up to current housing
codes, make 11 home more en-
ergy efficient, modify the home
for handicapped or elderly oc-
cupants, and correct health and
safety violation. A home may be
rehabilitated or demolished and
replaced, and the award can help
pay for temporary relocation of
the occupants..
Homeowners must make ap-
plication at city hall, and those
iPPplications will be reviewed for
eligibility then ranked. Awards
will be made based on priority
ranking and approved by the city
commission.
The homeowners will receive
no money. Instead, the grant co-
ordinator will inspect the home,
write up the needed repairs along
with a cost estimate. The project
will then be bid out and award-
ed to the lowest eligible bidder'
Once the commission awards the
contract, permitting, construc-
tion, and final inspections and
project approval will occur.

median income and household
size. Very low-income applicants
earn 50 percent or less of the in-
come limit. for their household
size. Low-income applicants
earn 80 percent or less.
For example, for a family of
four in the city the extremely lowA-
income limit is around $15,000
annually. The very low-income
limit is around $25,000 annually.
The low-income limit is around
$40,000 annually.
A complete chart is available
at Starke City Hall with the ap-
plication packet. Those with the
greatest need will be the most
highly ranked.
This funding is only for homes
located within the Starke city
limits, although the county and
other municipalities have their
own housing programs~ when
money is awarded. .
The cost of repairs requested
must be reasonable when com-
pared to the value of the home,
and manufactured or mobile
homes can qualify for funding.
Aging homes 50 years old or old-
er, however, must be approved
by the State Bureau of Historic
Preservation in order to qualify
for assistance.
Homeowners must also be in-
sured.
Assistance is awarded in the
form of a five-year forgivable


essary, and historical approval
must be obtained for homes that
have been around for more than
50 years.
According to Modesitt, grant
funds received are available to
rehabilitate or replace 10 to I2
residences. The city must com-
plete at least 10, with two being
extremely low-income house-
holds and two being very low-
income. The other households
can be low- to moderate-income.
The average project cost will be
around $60,000.
The grant expiration date is
May 20, 2013.
Assistance is available to ho-
meowners who meet income
eligibility requirements and have
received no CDBG assistance in
the past five years. Applicants
must have clear title to the home
in question and reside there, and
all taxes, mortgage payments and
utility payments must be current.
They must also agree to maintain
the home with a reasonable stan-
dard of care once the improve-
ments have been made.
A point system is used to rank
applicants. Advantage is given to
elderly applicants or those who
live a handicap (or handicapped
family member), but incogne is
also an important factor in the
ranking. Extremely low-income
applicants are those who earn 30
percent or less of the income lim-

Starke has housing rehabilita-
tion funds available but few have
shown interest, so a call is going
out again for applicants.
Starke has received a Commu-
nity. Development Block Grant
for $700,000 that will be spent
on housing repair projects over
the~nexrt two years.
According to Scott Modesitt
of Summit Professional Services,
the city's grant administrator, of
the nine applications received
and reviewed, obly five residents
providedd all of the documenta-
tion required to be scored and
ranked. In some cases, residents
were unable to provide proof that
they own the properties where
they live, one of the grant re-
quirements.
In one case, the applicant owns
the home but does not live there
because of its condition. The
commission could have chosen
to waive the residency require-
ment, but did pot do so, so only
four of the five completed appli-
cations were approved.
Commissioner Carolyn Spoon-
er disqualified herself from vot-
ing since one of the applicants is
a relative.
Applicants will be served in

Boettcher was making her
fburth trip to state as a
sophomore. She captured the
state championship in the 199-
pound class as a freshman and
took second at this year's state
finals in the unlimited class
with a 405 total. She recorded
a season-best total in the bench
press at 205 and tied her,
season-best in the clean and
jerk at 200.
It was actually a tie for
second as Union County's
Samantha Cook had a 405 total
aswell, but Boettcher
benefitted from the weigh-in
tiebreaker.
Boettcher qualified for state
by placing second--behind
Cciok--at th'e District 4 meet.
She had a 200 bench press and
a 190 clean and jerk to finish
with a 390 total.
.Boys' weightlifting team
thember Verschaeve posted the
best bench press in his class en
ioute to capturing a medal by
placingg third in the 199 class at
~the-state finals. His 365 bench
press was at least 10 pounds
better than every lifter in the
class. That and his 245 clean
and jerk gave him a 600 total.

This is to wish everyone had a Merry~

Christmas and hoping 2012 will be much

better for us all. We appreciate the

friendship and love that God gives us all

toward one another. Life wouldn't be worth

the living if we didn't have good friends to

Share good times with.

We all have so many blessings to be

thankful for. Thank God for them all.

Christmas has gotten so commercial that we

forget who Christmas is all ~about. "The birth

Of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ." But

then again, when the chips are down -

who do we fall back on!!! Jesus, who died

that we ~may live.

Again, the Archer Funeral Home and staff

hope everyone had a Happy and Blessed

ChriStmas, and that the New Year be filled

With joy and abundance of health, love and

may all your wishes come true.



"Our love to you and yours"

Things that ma ke you go, H mmm...


BY RAMONA PETRY
Special to the Telegqraph-
Times-Monitor
You've seen the
advertisement in the paper and
on signs throughout our
community. "Buy local, save
our jobs."
What does' it mean? How
does it affect me or my
'community? Why buy it here
when I think I can get it in
Jacksonville or Gainesville for
less?
With some items, it may
seem that way, but it is not
necessarily true, and the
ramifications to our
community far outweigh' the
belief that you are saving
money.
There have been a lot of
businesses through the years
that have come to Starke and
left due to a lack of support
from the community. The loss
of these small businesses has
really had a tremendous
negative effect on our
community and our wallets.
As a small child in Starke, I
remember a small Sears store.
I remember this because for
Christmas I would get long,
full-body pajamas that I could
slide on our floor in, and they
kept me warm in the winter. I
remember getting summer
dresses and shorts, too.

IV~ Christmas
wish came true!
Dear Editor:
Several weeks before
Christmas day, I was feeling a
lot of stress. I had several cats
that I was boarding at a local
vet because I had no other
room 'for them and I was
having trouble adopting them
out to their forev er homes.
There was Oliver and Honey
that I had taken in at the same
time. They were older cats and
were declawed. I had placed
them in a liome pretty quickly
and it didn't work out. They
had been at tbe vet's office
about one and a half months.
Then there was Trinket. I had
placed her in homes two times
before and was still unable to
find her forever home. She had
-been at the vet's a couple of


cared very deeply for animals
and would provide a good
home for Trinket. I kept in
touch with him for several
days and now think that
Trinket has finally found her
forever home.
Oliver's adoptive home was
in Gainesville in a retirement
home where they encourage
their residents to have pets. I
visited with Oliver's adoptive
mother and felt that he would
do well there. An e-mail I
received a few days later told
me 'that he' was a lot of
company. So I think Oliver has
found his forever home.
Placing Oliver, Honey and


Trinket in loving homes madte~
my Christmas wish colde true~
But there will always be more:
animals to rescue and find
homes for. We will certainly;
never finish rescuing cats add~~
dogs as long as peopl@~P
abandon them, neglect them,
and don't spay/neuter their:
pets. My New Year's
resolution is make the humane
treatment of animals one of the
most important things
Bradford County and its
citizens care about.

your neighbors and trends.
They give a personal touch
you will not get at a large store
in a different community. If
because of a lack of support
they have to close their doors'
then we lose more than just
another store. We lose support
for our children, families and
friends.
How would our community
fare if all of our small business
closed shop and moved away?
Where would you be forced to
shop? How far will you have
to drive to get what you need?
The other concept to grasp
from this is the ramifications
on our local taxes. When you
buy here in your local area'
your taxes stay mn our
community and support ~our
community. When you buy
from another town, your tax
money goes to that
community.
As much as you may not
wish to support government'
you are in fact supporting
members of our community.
I miss our shoe store, and I
really dislike being forced to
drive to a nearby city to buy
shoes for my family. I miss the
convenience of shopping here
Remember this, and support
all of our local businesses'


A small shoe store where we
could buy quality shoes at a
reasonable price used to be
located downtown across from
the movie theater on Call
Street. I remember buying my
first pair of boots that I ever
purchased myself--with lawni-
mowing money--from that
store, and when I wore the
soles off of those boots, Mom
took me farther up Call Street
to the shoe repair shop. There,
they 'put new soles on my
boots--it was like a new pair
all over again,
Now those stores are long
gone, but we have other small
businesses in our community
that need our support. There is
information almost weekly in
the newspaper about how most
of our local businesses support
our community--helping our
schools' athletic, science and
agriculture departments, the
volunteer fire departments, and
food and toy drives for those in
our community, just to nbme a
few.
Can we really afford to
punish our community by not
supporting our local
businesses? What about the
people they employ? Do we
really need to increase our
jobless rate? Most of our small
businesses are owned by
people who live right here-


Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New
Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to.

weeks .
All three were beautiful,
friendly and loving cats, and I
knew that they would make
loving pets for someone. It was
just a matters of finding that
special someone or family. My
Christmas wish was to place
them in loving and caring
homes before Christmas.
Each day that went by, my
stress level went higher. I did
not want them to be there past
Christmas and certainly not
Past New Year's day. It wasn't
because of how much it cost .
me to board them, but because
of how tough it would be on
them-
About a week' and a half
before Christmas I received a
call from a woman who had
edm oeacat to cancer ahned
remaimang cat. She wanted a
declined cat and decided on
Honey. I drove Honey over to
Gainesville and, after a short
visit, I left Honey feeling that
she would do well. After
keeping in touch with t'his
woman over several days I
realized that Honey had found
her forever home. That left
Oliver and Trinket.
The -week before Christmas I
received calls froni two people
who were interestk-d in ol~~er
and Trinket. Trinket was
adopted by a person in
Hawthorne who said he had a
way with animals and hadn't
had a pet for several years.
After driving Trinket to her
new home, I realized that he

'Der Edi~tors)'
':ie hav4 allfkard about the
"ijlling" '' df' thet Hawthorne
Pl wood Plant. It's a sad story.
I f~el like everyone needs to
k i~w the'teal story. I feel like
pe iple need -to know an inside
view of what's really going on.
I work at the plywood plant.
I found out about the
shutdown, not from GP, but


get rid of the union, re-open in
2013, hire people at a huge pay
cut, and take away benefits and
other rights we now have as
GP employees. Does that
sound lie corrup lon
Every non-management
employee was lied to. Mr.
Koch, the owner in GP, has a
business plan for Hawvthorne
- it's called.:MBM (Market-
Based M~lanagement). The
guiding principles are:
integrity, compliance, value,
creation, principled
entrepeneurship, customer
focus, knowledge, change,
humility, respect and
fulfillment
The way they went about the
shutdown does not come close
to those "guidelines." I believe
we, as a *community, all
needed to hear an inside view
of the Hawthorne GP Plant


from Facebook. When I got
back to work, we all had
questions, but they had no
answers. The truth has since
leaked out from management.
The log truck drivers, who
are contracs~ed out by GP,
found out three months before
the shutdown. We all heard
about it then and asked the
.plant triara-ger about it. She
o~..~~ ld .us it \\ as a motr~u and that
we were selling plywood, so
there was nothing to worry
about. I guess it was not a
rumor after all.
After we confronted the
plant manager about the
rumor, our plant went into
overdrive, putting out as much
plywood as we could make.
We did overtime and basically
sped tip the entire process for
them. Knowing the shutdown
was corling, why did they
boost production and lie tS
every employee? From an
inside view, it seems as if they
are trying to shut 'us down
ASAP. There are more
"rumors" about GP's Srying to


shutdown .
I'm just
person who

passed the ball downcourt to
McBride for an easy score.
After two missed free throws
by St. Mary's, McBride scored
on a rebound putback to make
the score 32-31.
The Tornadoes were
aggressive on the boards, with

he made one free throw to tie
the score.

COOk Wins medal at
state weightlifting finals
Samantha Cook improved
upon her seventh-place finish
.in 2010 in a big way, placing
third in the girls' weightlifting
.state finals and improving her
overall total by 60 pounds.
Cook, competing in the
unlimited class, actually tied
for second at the state finals
`with Keystone Heights lifter
Morgan Boettcher, but
Boettcher was awarded second
with the weigh-in tiebreaker.
Cook, who set school
records in the bench press,
clean and jerk, and overall
total in her class, had a 405
overall total at state. Her bench
press was 210, while her clean
and jerk was 195.
At the District 4 state
