^V^rth Notiug


SRWMD to
give update
on Sampson
Lake control
structure
April 19
James Link of the Suwannee
River Water Management District
will speak at the Bradford County
Commission meeting on Thurs-
day, April 19, at 6:30 p.m. to give
the commissioners an update on
:the Sampson Lake water control,
structure.
In response to citizens' con-
cerns about the existing water
control structure under C.R. 225
in Starke, the district is assisting
the county by designing and in-
stalling a new structure that will
do a better job of controlling wa-
ter levels.
Link will give the board a prog-
ress report on the project and let
.them know about the upcoming
public meetings that the district
plans to hold in June to discuss
the project.
"The new water control struc-
ture will be a more efficient struc-
ture to pass floodwaters than the
existing gates," said Link.
The new structure will also
maintain existing lake levels by
preventing unauthorized opening
or closing of the adjustable gates,
slightly reducing the base flood
elevation of the lake, and being
removable, which will enable the
-Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission to lower the
lake periodically to enhance the
fish habitat.
For more information about
the Sampson Lake water control
structure, call James Link at 386-
362-1001 or 1-800-226-1066.

Consider yourself challenged


Latest health statistics another wake-up call


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor.


It's another year and here comes an-
other unflattering picture of Bradford
County's health, but this time the local
health advisory council hopes every-
one will heed the warning and commit
themselves to turning things around.
Bradford County was 49th in the state
out of 67 counties in the latest study
from the County Health Rankings and
Roadmaps program. Residents here
are sicker and tend to die younger than
many others in the state and the rest of
the country.
The frustrating thing for those re-
ceiving and discussing this information
is how preventable this reality could be
if only more people become involved
in promoting solutions.
The Bradford County Community
Health Advisory Council began meet-


ing in 2009 to mobilize
the community to make
a difference in the over-
all health of the county,
according to Winnie
Holland, director of the
Bradford County Health
Department.
Obesity was the pri-
mary target because of
a study that identified
Bradford as the state's
most obese county.
(More recent studies
show that is no longer
the case.)
Working with com-
munity partners, in-
cluding Shands Starke,
there were initiatives
like Partnering 2 Move
and a local version of
the Biggest Loser. Both

At 49th in the state, Bradford's latest health
ranking is not the worst in the region, but
there's plenty of room for improvement.

Starke runs out of water-temporarily


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
Starkelournal.com Editor

The city's 6,000 inhabitants faced
dry faucets Sunday night when
Starke's 450,000-gallon water tank
went dry.
Residents started reporting prob-
lems around 8:40 p.m. and commis-
sioners Tommy Chastain and Wilbur
Waters joined Water Superintendent
Kyle Jerrels and Retired Operations
Manager Ricky Thompson at the
city's water plant and adjoining wa-
ter tower shortly thereafter. Mayor
Danny Nugent later joined the com-
missioners.
But all eyes were on Jerrels, the
only person qualified to solve the
problem.
The water superintendent quickly
surmised that a power problem caused


the well pumps to trip out, preventing
the water tank from being replen-
ished.
Jerrels first got the pumps back on-
line, and then filled the 100,000-gal-
lon ground tank that lies just to the
west of the tower. Around 10 p.m.
that tank started over-flowing, signal-
ing Jerrels to make his next move.
But instead of refilling the nearly
half-million-gallon silver,tank that
dominates Starke's skyline, the super-
intendent released water directly into
the city's water lines, bypassihg the
big cistern.
According to gauges at the plant,
around 400 gallons a minute poured
into the dry lines. Commissioners got
on their cell phones polling friends
and relatives throughout town, ask-
ing them if they had water pressure.
Within 30 minutes, Nugent and Wa-


ters both reported water at their own
homes. A Raiford Road area custom-
er said she also had water.
Thompson said the city would have
to issue boiled water alert because of
the outage, likely lasting 48 hours.
Jerrels also tried to account for the
fact that the city had no systems in
place to alert workers of falling wa-
ter pressure. He said the water plant
has a system of "call outs" that alert
workers about adverse conditions at
the plant. However a call out for fall-
ing water pressure had not yet been
installed because the city is waiting
for a control box.
Around 10:20 p.m., the crisis ap-
peared to be over with some commis-
sioners returning to their homes.
Jerrels said he planned to work
through most of the night.


were successful and drew attention.
They were also involved in perform-
ing community needs assessments to
identify the biggest problems, from ac-
cess to care to knowledge of available
resources.
It was a challenge keeping people in-
volved and on track, however.
Time has passed, other studies have
pointed out the need for action, but
Holland said improving the commu-
nity's health is not something a single
agency can take on by itself.
The fact that there are so many fac-
tors contributing such as educational
attainment, poverty, joblessness and
criminal activity contributing to the
community's physical and mental
health means that everyone in the
public and private sector has a role to
play, including businesses, churches,
schools, government and law enforce-
ment.

School may

have to provide

free breakfasts

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

One local economic indicator is the
fact that the number of public students
in the free and reduced-cost lunch pro-
gram continues to rise.
This could increase the meal re-
quirements at at least one of the el-
ementary schools next year, according
to Dotty Rondelli, head of food ser-
vices for the district.
Rondelli reminded the school board
last week that the district would be re-
quired by law to provide free break-
fast to all students in a school if par-
ticipation in the free and reduced-cost
lunch program at that school reached
80 percent.
According to Rondelli, Southside
Elementary School has reached 78.6
percent, and new program applica-
tions continue to come into her office
every day.
Rondelli said the law would require
the district to provide universal free
breakfasts at the school or hold pub-
lic hearings to explain that the district
would be opting out of the require-
ment.
Currently, the school board hasn't
approved a policy one way or the oth-
er, but Rondelli said the policy needs
to be considered in the near future be-
cause Southside is so close to the 80
percent threshold.
While Southside could be required
to provide free breakfasts to all stu-
dents, Rondelli doesn't predict there
will be that great a change during the
breakfast service. Of the 645 students
currently at Southside, the cafeteria
serves an average of 197 breakfasts per
day. Most of those students already re-
ceive free meals, Rondelli said. They
average only 12 reduced-price meal
students and eight full-price meal stu-
dents per day at breakfast.
Because almost all of the students
who eat breakfast are already on the
free lunch program, Rondelli doesn't
expect her morning numbers at South-
side will go up much if universal
free breakfast were implemented at
the school, so she recommended the
school board go ahead and adopt that
policy.
"We're already there, we're already
feeding, and based on the numbers
we've had all year long, I don't know
that we would pick up very many
-more students," she said.
It's a possibility, but most students
who do eat breakfast are also bus
students who arrive early enough for
the 20-minute breakfast service. Of
course, students who arrive by car or
who walk are welcome to eat break-
fast, but it means arriving earlier.
Rondelli also noted that the percent-
age of students on the free and reduced-
price lunch program at Starke Elemen-
tary is not far behind Southside.

2A BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH I lSDAY, APRIL 19, 2012


Student, schools being
graded on tougher standards


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

It will be tougher than ever to
score well on the Florida Com-
prehensive Assessment Test this
year, and that is sure to have an
effect on school grades as well.
Testing began this week and
wilt be subject to more rigorous
standards, according to Carol
Ciyatt, the district's director of
accountability and special pro-
grams. Additional changes could
come as recommendations are
'made on proficiency measure-
ments of students with disabili-
ties, English language learners
and other groups now included in
the evaluation process, whether
they take the FCAT or the Flori-
da Alternative Assessment.
Many of the changes won't
make much sense to most people
as they concern how points are
assigned or lost for the various
student assessment and school
grade components. On the other
hand some are easy to under-
stand. For example, unlike be-
fore when a school could be
graded an A even if three' out
of four of its students were not
reading at grade level, now any
school that doesn't have at least
25 percent of its students reading
at grade level will automatically
drop one letter grade (beginning
in 2012-13).
According to the state, Florida
has been evaluating students and
schools has been raising the bar
on student achievement all along.
FCAT 2.0 and other assessment
tools are being introduced. At the
same time, the state has received
a waiver from the federal No
Child Left Behind requirements
to avoid being accountable to
two systems, but it needs to sub-
stitute a modified grading system
to comply with the waiver:
The achievement level cut
scores have been raised for the
reading and math. Using the
third grade as an example, Clyatt
showed the school board last


week that had the new standards
applied last year, proficiency
achievement would have dropped
from 72 percent to around 53
percent.
Elementary school achieve-
ment in particular could slide
under the new standards, Clyatt
said.
"Third grade is going to be
hit really hard this year. This is
statewide, and everybody under-
stands that we're going to have
a lot more kids who are going
to score Level 1 in reading and
math," she said;
On the other hand, high school
performance could improve,
Clyatt said, continuing to ap-
ply last year's scores to the new
achievement standards. Testing
in higher grades is becoming
more rigorous, however, as the
state continues to transition from
FCAT 2.0 to end-of-course ex-
ams in high school classes.
Schools are getting a yearlong
reprieve from the reading and
Smath progress requirements for
their lowest quartile of students
since there won't be FCAT 2.0
scores to compare them to until
next year. Also, students moving
from lower levels into Level 4
and Level 5 will earn weighted
.point vales. It's an added incen-
tive for moving student into the
higher achievement levels. The
state has also listened to past
complaints about how the high
school graduation rates were be-
ing calculated.
These are just a few of the
changes that will impact stu-
dent and district assessment.
Students scores have helped de-
termine school grades for years,
but while there have been more
and more A and B schools in the
state and fewer and fewer D and
F schools, the tougher standards
are expected to change that.
Lower student performance will
mean lower school performance,
and these scores will also play a
role in teach* evaluation.


Lawtey failed to set money

aside for loan repayment


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

Auditors for the city of Law-
tey reported that the town vio-
lated a loan agreement with the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
by not setting aside money to re-
pay a loan used to fund the city's
sewer system.
In December 2011, USDA
loaned Lawtey $1,442,000 for
Phase Two of its sewer plant.
The loan, combined with a
$1,147,000 grant and a $600,000
commitment from a community
development block grant helped

to fund the $4 million project.
Reddish and White CPAs
wrote in a report that under its
loan agreement with USDA, the
city should have opened a sepa-
rate bank account, known as a
sinking fund, and then should
have made monthly deposits
from sewer system revenues into
that bank account to cover the
annual USDA loan payment.
Earlier this year, the city coun-
cil authorized Clerk Lisa Harley
to open the sinking fund bank
account, but she said as of April
8 she had not yet opened the ac-
count.

BMS teacher will earn degree through U-Futures


.BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Bradford Middle School and
teacher Sabrina Harden have
behn accepted to take on the chal-
le ge of the U-Futures teacher
training program.
: The program aims to transform
middle school science teachers
into great middle school science
teachers and have a positive im-
pact on student achievement in
the'process.
SU-Futures is short for Univer-
sit of Florida Unites Teachers
toReform Education in Science.
TM. program is made possible by
thoJuniversity as well as the Na-
titqal Science Foundation.
*A-ssistant Superintendent Lisa
Prevatt said involvement in U-
Futures would be quite a task.
Harden will be participating in
a job-embedded graduate degree
program in science teacher lead-
ership. While earning her mas-
ter's degree, she will receive on-
going training and support from
the.program as she works with
other middle school teachers in
the continuous study of teaching
practices and student learning.

state learning standards known
as Investigating and Question-
ing our World through Science
and Technology. The goal is to
improve student performance in
science by improving the teach-
ing of science and providing a


stimulating course of study.
The curriculum will be rolled
out with one class of sixth-grade
students beginning next year,
Prevatt said. Everyone is excited
about the opportunity, she added.
There has been a new emphasis


on science, technology, engi-
neering and math, or STEM, ed-
ucation because of the growing
career opportunities.
Prevatt said the curriculum will
better prepare middle-schoolers
to move on to high school and
later into some of those science
careers.
Harden said. the program is
progressive, so the sixth-graders
who encounter it for the first
time next year will continue on
that path throughout their time
at BMS. As Harden trains other
teachers, they will begin incor-
porating it into their classrooms
as well.
U-Futures is a proven program.
She said eighth-graders exposed
to one year of the curriculum and
subsequently tested performed
as well as high school physics
students. Eighth-graders in the
program for three years outper-
formed high school students tak-
ing the same physics test.
Harden said her goal is to send
students to the high school ready
to blow their teachers' expecta-
tions out of the water.
"I'm really, really excited,"
she said, not just for her class
but for the work she will get to
do with other teachers and their
classes.

'To a certain degree, we
took the opportunity once we
were preparing those to also

tails about how the relationship
between the county and each
of those agencies would work,
Sexton said. However, there was
no real change from the status
quo, he said. It was simply a mat-
ter of writing it all down.
Leadership from each depart-

BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

Nearly one dozen Starke po-
lice officers, early Tuesday,
poured. through the kitchen door
of a North Church Street home to
execute a search warrant and ar-
rest a suspected cocaine dealer.
Bobby Lee Rhines, 25, was
later charged with three counts
of possession of a weapon by a
convicted felon, three counts.of
possession of narcotics equip-
ment, one count of possession of
marijuana with intent to sell or
distribute, and one count of pos-
session of cocaine with intent to
sell or distribute. Bond was set at
$100,000.
Police ialseb tirged, W4ifie
Charles Jenkins with resisting
an officer. They released a third
man that was in the house.
Outside the house, Rhines ap-
peared subdued, standing pas-
sively while Officer John Riles
read the search warrant to him.
However, when officers walked
him to a patrol car for transport


I was born and raised in Brad-
ford County. I served in the Unit-
ed States Army for two years. I
am an active member at Trinity
Baptist Church. I worked for the
Bradford County School Board
with the maintenance department
for 35 years until my recent re-
tirement.
My late wife, Betsy, and I
raised three daughters in Brad-
ford County who each attend-
ed Bradford County Schools.
Our daughters Mindy Hersey
Polk (husband Randall Polk),
Danielle Hersey Branch (hus-
band Ned Branch) and Tori
Hersey Schenck (husband Dave
Schenck) have given us 10 won-
derful grandchildren.
I have'a vested interest in the
school system as my grandchil-
dren are school age and will be
attending school for many years
to come. Family, quality educa-
tion and maintaining a positive
school environment for the stu-
dents are main priorities for me.
Congratulations to Mrs. Viv-
ian Chappell who represented
us on the school board for so
many years. I would love the op-
portunity to be your voice in the
school board in the next term.
Thank you for considering Elbert
E. Hersey as your next school
board member, District 4.


to the jail, the 25-year-old began
shouting at them.
Police added that within the
first few minutes in the house
they found a firearm, crack co-
caine and a scale they said was
likely used to distribute the illicit
substance.
Capt. Barry Warren said it
would likely take hours for the
* search team to make its way
through the residence, going
room to room, collecting. evi-
dence, taking photographs and
recording their findings.
A search warrant also autho-
rized officers to inspect the ve-
hicles and outbuildings on the
property, which included two
sheds and several chicken-coop-
like structures in the backyard.
Later, Warren said the team re-
covered three firearms, 16 grams
of cocaine, 116 grams of mari-
juana and over $1,500 in U.S.
currency.
,-.Nearly two dozen officers par-
icipated in the operation, about
half of which served on the entry
team. The other half were posted
around the perimeter of the home
or handled the search after the
entry team secured the area. Of-
ficers from UCI's K-9 unit also
stood by in case any of the sus-
pects escaped the perimeter.

Library helps patrons
research their history
Arnold Weeks (pictured at right), director of community
services in Clay County, has been researching his
lineage for the last 40 years and he shared somerof what
he's learned Native American ancestral research with
genealogy enthusiasts at the Bradford County Public
Library recently, including how past government laws
and census errors can affect someone's ability to trace
their relatives, how each of the tribes handled their
ancestry (some tribes considered the woman as the head
of household), and how DNA tests can determine where
one's ancestors are from. The library hopes to have
Weeks back in the fall to discuss the DNA testing and
match process. Also pictured are patrons Gladys McRae,
Donna Rowe, Ralph and.Charlene Martin, Katie Knight,
and then Beth and Joe Daniel.

Walk a mile

in her shoes
Hampton Elementary
School students have
logged more than 1,000
miles so far this year in the
school's LAPS program,
which rewards students for
physical activity. Second-
grader Destiny Worsham
(pictured above) was
the first student to reach
125 miles this year. She
earned the big foot for
her necklace along with
all the other 25 feet she
has earned. Three other
second-graders have
reached 100 miles this
year: Brandon Cox, Israel
Villa and Ashton Roach.


SAcross the Garden
SFence is a new column
sponsored by the Bradford
County Extension Service.
SReaders who wish to pose
gardening questions should
forward them to Mary Bridg-
S man atjtd@ufl.edu.

What is meant by the term
/ "Florida Friendly Landscaping"?
"Creating and maintaining attractive
landscapes to enhance our community and to pro-
tect Florida's natural environment," is the stated
goal of Florida Friendly Landscaping. It emphasiz-
es nine major principles, which teach homeown-
ers, builders, developers, landscape maintenance
professionals and others how to implement envi-
ronmentally sound design and maintenance tech-
niques in their landscapes:
1. Right plant, right place-Choose your land-
scape plants to suit the specific site you have
in mind in order to minimize the need for wa-
ter, fertilizer and pesticides. Plants are matched
with conditions based on USDA zone, water
and light requirements, soil conditions, and salt
and wind tolerance.
2. Water efficiently-Irrigate only when your
lawn, garden and landscape plants need water.
The purpose is to conserve an important and
shrinking natural resource-water.
3. Fertilize appropriately-Remember, less is of-
ten best. Over-utilization of fertilizers can dam-
age your yard and the environment, causing
excessive growth, pest problems, and higher
water requirements.
4. Mulch-A 3-inch layer of mulch will help re-
tain moisture in your soil, and can reduce ero-
sion. It also helps suppress weed growth.
5. Attract wildlife-Choosing plants that provide


food, water and shelter for Florida's
unique and diverse wildlife can help
conserve this valuable resource. If you
make your yard attractive to birds,
bees, bats and other animals displaced
by urban development, they may re-
ward you by eating pest insects and
helping to pollinate your garden.
6. Manage yard pests responsibly-


MA
SGA/ GA


UFi A
IFAS


Excessive and
inappropriate use
of pesticides can
hurt people, pets,
beneficial organ-
isms and the en-
vironment. Scout
your landscape to
detect new pest
infestations to get
the most use from
using the "softer"
insecticides like
soaps and oils.
Large infestations
of mature insects

may need to be controlled with more potent,
broad-spectrum insecticides. Be sure to use in-
secticides after dusk when the pollinators are
not out. Remember, pesticide labels are the
law!
7. Recycle-You can recycle grass clippings,
leaves and shrubbery trimmings on site. They
will provide nutrients to the soil and reduce
waste disposal.
8. Reduce storm water runoff-When water runs
off your yard, it might carry pollutants such as
soil, debris, fertilizer and pesticides that can
compromise water quality of natural or man-
made waterways. The water with its contents
is called storm water runoff. The chemicals we
add to our landscapes go into storm drains or
through the soil into the aquifer. Oil and residue
on roads, driveways and parking lots also end
up in the same places, causing pollution prob-
lems for the environment.
9. Protect the waterfront-Bradford County is
blessed with ponds, lakes and creeks. These
areas are very fragile and should be carefully
protected to maintain freshwater ecosystems.

HEALTH
Continued from 1A
Last summer, Holland said
they performed a survey to de-
termine how adept all of these
constituents of the public health
system were at working together
and sharing information and re-
sources. The results were sent
to the CDC and graded, but she
said if that information can't be
shared with people who want to
be involved, then things won't
change. People are needed to
plan and implement solutions.
Those who have been involved
with the health advisory council
believe tackling poor health and
the social problems that influ-
ence health can improve the
quality of life for the entire com-
munity, making it a place that
attracts new families and busi-
nesses, leading to greater health
and prosperity for all.
Schools that help kids be
healthier will help raise healthy
adults. Businesses that get em-
ployees involved will benefit
from a happier, healthier and
more productive workforce.
Churches and civic groups can
provide encouragement and sup-
port for their members and get
involved in sharing information
and support throughout the com-
munity. Law enforcement can do
more to prevent drug abuse and
violent crime.
Everyone has a vital role to
play and something important
to contribute, Holland said. That
means getting proactive to turn
the statistics around.
"We can't just take care of sick
people and everything is going to
get better," she said.
Holland encouraged the hand-
ful who attended the latest health
advisory council meeting to think
about making plans to address to
the areas the group felt it could
make a big difference-tobacco
use and obesity. She also encour-


aged them to help get others in-
volved.
Change is possible. Even
though Union County is last in the
state in health outcomes, they've
seen a spark there. Responding to
the need to turn things around for
their county, community mem-
bers-adults and children-have
been more involved, and it's
making a difference. Tobacco
use has declined 6 percent in two
years, Holland said, and over
time that will improve the health
of the population and lengthen
lives.
"I think everybody that's in
this county has an opportunity to
make a difference in at least one
of those areas," said Holland re-
ferring to the high-risk behaviors
highlighted in the health rank-
ings, including tobacco use, diet
and exercise and excessive alco-
hol consumption.
Holland is optimistic that if
enough people knew they could
reduce their chance of suffering
from diabetes, for example, by
losing some weight, and they had
support in doing that, then people
would make changes in how they
live their lives.
Progress means getting people
to the table, so the council has
decided to try a lunchtime meet-
ing later in May. Details will be
released when the meeting is es-
tablished. For more information
on getting involved, contact the
health department at 904-964-
7732.

Closer look: What
the study says
The Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation and the University of
Wisconsin Population Health In-
stitute collaborate on the County
Health 'Rankings and Roadmaps
program.
According to the ranking re-
port, Bradford County residents
are more likely to die prema-
turely and they are more likely to


report living in poor physical and
mental health. Fifteen percent of
adults report having only fair to
poor health, and they report be-
ing physically unwell an aver-
age of 3.5 days each month. The
same is true of mental illness.
Also, nearly 10 percent of babies
born to Bradford County mothers
are born at a low birth weight.
These are the health outcomes
measured by the ranking and
they place the county and 53"
in the state in terms of mortality
(early death) and 41s' in the state
in terms of morbidity (sickness).
-Taken together, the county is 49t'
in the state in health outcomes.
Though not the worst in the re-
gion, Bradford's ranking is pretty
low, particularly compared with
neighboring Clay County, which
ranked sixth in the state in over-
all health outcomes, and Ala-
chua County, which ranked 15'h.
Baker, however, was lower then
Bradford at 63 out of 67 coun-
ties, and Union was dead last. St.
Johns County led the state.
Counties are also ranked by
health factors-the behavioral,
social and environmental con-
tributors to health. In this case,
Bradford County ranks 48"' in
the state. Alachua is fifth, Baker
is 53rd, Clay is 18h and Union is
52nd. St. Johns is first in the state
again and Hamilton is last.
According to the rankings, 20
percent of adults in Bradford
County smoke tobacco and 35
percent are obese. Thirty percent
report no leisure time physical
-activity. Seventeen percent drink
to excess. The teen birth rate is
more than three times higher
than the national average, and the
comparisons for motor vehicle
crash deaths and sexually trans-


mitted infections are also grim.
Other than health behaviors,
the survey also considers clini-
cal care and finds that 24 percent
of people under 65 are without
health care coverage. There are
fewer primary care physicians to
serve the population and a great-
er number of preventable hospi-
tal stays than other areas.
High school graduation rate,
college education, the unemploy-
ment rate and the violent crime
rate are amorig the social and
economic factors that determined
Bradford's health factor rank-
ing. Of note, the graduation rate
took a dip to 64 percent in the
year measured, but rebounded
in 2011. The ranking shows that
college education is about half as
common in Bradford compared
with the national average.
Twenty-six percent of the
county's children live in pov-
erty, which is twice the national
average, and 37 percent are in
single-parent households, which
is comparable to the rest of the
state but significantly higher than
the rest of the country.
There was no data under the
physical environment category
save for one interesting tidbit: 62
percent of the restaurants in the
county are considered fast food
establishments, not typically
known for being purveyors of
the healthiest food. The state av-
erage is 45 percent. The national
average is just 25 percent.

Lunch prices could
go up again
In another update, Rondelli
told the school board that lunch
prices would probably go up


again next year.
Until recently, it was up to the
school board to set meal prices.
There is now a tool the district
must employ to help set those
prices so it can collect the rev-
enue it needs jo provide paid
lunches. (Free and reduced-
price meals are subsidized.) That
caused lunch prices to go up 10
cents this year, and they could go

'I,

In celebration of our new

Lake City location, Audibel

would like to offer the same


up again next year based on the
new calculation.
Next year the average school
lunch price will need to be at
least $2.50. Currently the' el-
ementary lunch price is $2.35

Starke's Williams captures

motocross championship


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
He has qualified for the
American Motorcyclist
Association Amateur National
Motocross Championships for
two straight years, but Starke's
Cole Williams has picked up his
first big win in approximately
six years of racing, claiming the
10-11-year-old 65cc modified
trophy at the 36th annual GNC
International Motocross Final,
which was held in early March


in Decatur, Texas.
"It felt great,"-said, Williams,
the son of Jimmy and Chrissy
Williams. "(It was) exciting, but
it didn't really hit me until like
the third day (afterward)."
It may have taken some time
for him to fully reflect on what
he had just accomplished, but it
was a mixture of emotions for
his mother immediately after the
race.
"He's worked so hard,"
Chrissy Williams said. "His very


first win ever at a big event. That
brought me to tears."
The race was divided into two
"motos," with Cole winning
the first and placing second
in the second for the overall
championship. The first moto
was all Cole.
"He came out of the gate
first," Chrissy said. "He led the
whole race."

Paul Hutchins, a Bradford
County native who has worked
at Santa Fe College since 1988,
has been hired as the president
of Sampson Community College
in Clinton, N.C.
"I'm really looking forward to
it,"saidHutchins,whoiscurrently
the dean of educational centers
and economic development at
Santa Fe. "I think it's going to be
a great opportunity for me."
Hutchins will be leaving next
week to go to North Carolina.
He starts the job on May 1.
It will be Hutchins' first job as
a community college president.
The path toward becoming a
president began with Larry
Tyree, a former Santa Fe College
president. Tyree once asked
Hutchins if he had thought about
pursuing his doctorate, saying
there were going to be a lot of
opportunities in the future with
current community college
presidents retiring.
"It was an honor," Hutchins
"said of Tyree thinking of him
as a presidential candidate. "He
said that he thought I had the
aptitude and ability to do it if I
wanted."
Hutchins, who served as the
director of the Santa Fe College
Andrews Center in Starke from
1995 until 2002, did indeed get
his doctorate, enrolling at the
University of Florida.
He interviewed at Monroe
CommunityCollegeinRochester,
N.Y., because he knew President
Anne Kress, who once worked
at Santa Fe. A consultant for the
school was also working with a
school in Wisconsin, which led
to Hutchins also interviewing for
the Wisconsin school position.
After unsuccessful 'interviews
there, Hutchins interviewed
at three schools in North
Carolina. He was a finalist at
all three, but was offered the
position at Sampson, which is
approximately 30 miles east of
Fayetteville and approximately
an hour south of Raleigh.
As part of his interview there,.
'Hutchins was given a tour of
the campus before participating
in a forum composetl of school
faculty and staff in which school
personnel could get tq know
him and ask him questions.
Following that, he went through
the same thing again, only this
time it was a forum composed of
members of the community.
"I was just so impressed with
the people of the community and
the college," Hutchins said.
What turned out to be a full
day was capped by a 2.5-hour
interview with the school's
board of trustees.
He will be leaving his comfort
zone, which he admitted is a
little scary, and a "group of
people I love dearly," Hutchins
said. However, Hutchins is
looking forward to his new job
at Sampson and said the school
has his total commitment. He
wants to be there as long as the
.school will have him.
"I really don't have any desire
to go to another school once I
start there," Hutchins said.
Hutchins said Santa Fe
President Jackson Sasser and
Provost Ed Bonahue were
very supportive throughout the
process. Hutchins said Sasser


Paul Hutchins


took time out of his schedule
to counsel Hutchins and share
his experiences as a college
president that would be helpful.
That support won't end when
Hutchins leaves.
"He has told me several times
if I need his input, advice or
counsel to give him a call,"
Hutchins said.
Hutchins said he wanted to
thank Starke and the Bradford
County community for helping
him along this path. As a child

Motel front
desk clerk
stops attack
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
A front desk clerk at Starke's
Days Inn stopped an alleged rob-
bery in the motel's parking lot.
Starke police arrested Jason
Clarles Palm, 40, and Scott
Graham Underwood, 41, both of
North Port, for battery. Palm
was also charged with resisting
an officer without violence.
. The allegations against the
two men are not proven and they
are presumed innocent until ad-
judicated guilty by a court.
According to a police report,
on April 14 between midnight
and 1 a.m., the two men ap-
proached the victim on a side-
walk in front of the Days Inn.
The victim claimed the two men
told him, "give me your money
or your (expletive deleted) will
be dead." The victim also told
police that had he not made, it-
to the door of the motel where
the front desk clerk intervened,
he would have been seriously


injured or worse.
The Days Inn worker told
police he witnessed the initial
attack on the sidewalk and also
saw the two defendants follow
the victim through the parking
lot to the door of the motel. At
that time, the clerk told the sus-
pects to stop and informed them
he was calling police.
When officers tracked down
Palm and Underwood at their
motel, the Best Western, they
claimed the victim attacked
them. Police also wrote in their
report that the two alleged rob-
bers did not take anything from
the victim.

Women

vegetables,
1 arrested
One Starke woman was jailed
after she threatened another
woman with a knife, according
to a sheriff's office report.
Deputies charged Robin Ann
Neri, 50, with aggravated as-
sault with a deadly weapon


without intent to kill. Neri was
also charged with a probation
violation.
The charges filed are unprov-
en and Neri is presumed inno-
cent until adjudicated guilty by
a court.
According to the sheriff's of-
fice, Neri and the victim were in
the 50-year-old's kitchen when
a dispute erupted over cutting
vegetables.
According to the victim, Neri
picked up two knives off the
counter and threatened to kill
her. The victim said she threw a
cell phone at Neri to defend her-
self, but missed.
Neri denied threatening the
victim, telling a deputy, "I am
legally disabled and in a wheel-
chair." She added that while she
was in the kitchen cutting veg-
etables, the victim threw a cell
phone at her, which hit her in
the back of the head. She also
said the alleged victim then hit
her in the neck and kicked her
wheelchair.
The deputy wrote that in addi-
tion to arresting Neri, he planned
to forward a warrant affidavit to
the state attorney's office charg-
ing the victim with battery.


Lawtey
Supermarket
worker collars
shoplifter
A worker for Lavtey Super-
market detained a man trying
to steal beer from the store by
laying on hirt until a deputy ar-
rived.
Kenneth Lamar Gates, 42, of
Lawtey was charged with shop-
lifting and with resisting the
recovery of property by a retail
merchant.
The charges against Gates are
not proven and he is presumed
innocent until adjudicated guilty
by a court.
According to the sheriff's
office, on April 15 just after 6
p.m., cashiers told a male work-
er that Gates was trying to steal
beer.
The employee later told a
deputy he saw Gates go to the
store's cooler, take out a four
pack of Steel Reserve, then walk
over to an empty corner of the
store and stuff two of the cans
into his pockets.
The worker confronted the
man, and Gates threw one of


the cans on the floor while the
worker removed the other. The
employee then told the man to
remain calm until police arrived.
Gates, however, began to fight
with the worker, and the em-
ployee was forced to restrain him
until a deputy arrived.

blessings of my life," he said:

Tina, and their family will never
forget the community.
"My family and I will be
forever grateful for all the support
we got there from the people of
Starke and Brarlford County,"
Hutchins said.

Well, James another year
has come and gone and
your family still loves and
thinks of you every day.
Things change almost
every minute, babies are
born, and loved ones die,
people laugh, people cry,
and the world goes on.
.The one constant thing
in your family's life is the
void we have since you
were called'home.
People probably think
that after 18 years your
memory would be like a
dim light in the distance,
shadowed by fog. The op-

is like the brightest shining
spotlight and will continue
to4shine in our hearts and
minds as long we have a

Your family still misses
you, James, as a husband,

what a celebration we will
have when we meet again.
Until then, love,

Keystone Heights, passed away on

cancer.

"J.T." Thomas and Eddie Thomas,
both of Dothan, Ala. He was a grad-
uate of Daleville High School in
Alabama, served in the U.S. Army
and retired from the Hercules Cor-
poration.
He had a passion for many things
in his life. Model railroading seemed
: t be what captured his heart. Being
from Alabama, it only made sense
for him to be one of the most avid
Alabama Crimson Tide fans in the


area. It brought him great pride and
happiness to see "Bama win its 14th
national championship prior to his
passing.
One of Morris" biggest enjoy-
ments was teaching his children
and grandchildren things that he
had learned in life during their early
years, even until his final days.
Morris was preceded in death by
his daughter, Amy, and brothers-in-
law, Frank and Lamar.
He is survived by: his son, Clin-
ton Thomas and his wife Tiffany of
Keystone Heights; a daughter, Tessa
Thomas of Starke, and a son, Aaron
Thomas of Jacksonville. His grand-
children are Zachary, Savahna, Ja-
son, Gabrielle, Brooklyn, Tavyst
and, born just two weeks prior to his
passing, Fallyn.

William Varnes
PALATKA-William Qrady
Varnes, born Dec. 7, 1935, in Jack-
sonville, passed away peacefully
April 3, 2012, at home in Palatka.
Grady was the son of Ruby R.
Rosier of Lawtey and William Pitt
Varnes of Lake Butler. Grady was
proud of his family's Florida pio-
neer heritage.
Grady was initially raised in Or-
lando before moving to Lawtey with
his mother to live with her parents,
Middleton and Alice Rosier, on
their primitive rural farming home-
stead-an adjustment for a city boy
of 13, but one he was grateful to
haveexperienced.
Grady graduated from Bradford
County High School in 1953 before
attending the University of Florida.
He earned his bachelor of arts in ed-
ucation and a master of education in
1965. Shortly thereafter, he moved
to Beaumont, Texas, to teach sociol-
ogy at Lamar State College of Tech-
nology. While there, he met and
married Sharon Kay Speighit on
July 27, 1968, in Houston, Texas.
.. Grady returned to Florida with
Sharon and was admitted to the Ulni-
versity of Florida as graduate can-
didate for doctor of philosophy in
sociology, where he spent two ears
completing course"work. -During'
that time, he was published as co-
author in the British Journal for
work in multiple regression analy sis
of population trends in urban areas
Following his post-graduate
coursework, Grady taught ai Lake
City Community College and Forest
Ranger School in 1968 and 1969.
While on the faculty, he also taught
extension sociology courses in
criminology, juvenile delinquency.
and the sociology of deviant behav-
ior inside Raiford State Prison.
After camping around the Unnied
States, Grady and Sharon bought
acreage on Lake Galilee in west
Putnam County and built their
cabin, drilling their own well and
digging their septic tank. Follow-
ing that, he taught two years at Cen-
tral High School in Palatka. While
there, Grady was sponsor of the Ki-
wanis Club and met George Freder-
ick who introduced him to the real
estate business. In 1975, hesopened
Varnes Realty in Palatka.
As a realtor, Grady served. 'as
president of the Board of Real-
tors, county crusade chairman for
the America Cancer Society, state
chairman for the Homes for Living,
and chairman of the Professional
Standards Committee that enforces
the National Code of Ethics for Re-
altors on a local level (he held that
position for six years). He was also
recognized as Realtor of the Year.
Grady was interested and active


in politics. In 1982, he,became a
charter member of the Republican
Presidential Task Force in support
of Ronald Reagan. Also in 1982,
Grady became a member of the
United States Senatorial Club of
the National Republican Senatorial
Committee.
In 1988, both Grady and Sha-
ron retired and enjoyed spending
the next five years helping his fa-
ther, Pitt, build his "last hurrah," a
real log cabin on top of Sequatchie
Mountain in Tennessee.
In 1996, their interest in family
genealogy blossomed and they spent
most of the next few years working
with other family members creating
a computerized history of the Var-
nes, Varns and Varn family history.
Both he and his wife were members
of the Putnam County Genealogi-
:al Society as well as the Putnam
County Historical Society.
Grady included among his many
interests photography, poker and
computers. He was also a member
of the Palatka Skeet Club.
Grady is survived by: his loving.
wife of 43 years, Sharon Speights
Vanes; his sister, Glenda Varnes
(Raymond Earl) Loften of West
Palm Beach; and nephews W. Ray
Loften and Brian E. Loften, both of
West Palm Beach; as well as mem-
bers of his Tuesday night "Boys
Night Out" of which Grady was a
founding member and cherished
friend for dver 30 years.
SIt was Grady's wish to be cre-
mated, without a service. Memories

2 more area weightlifters


qualify for state tournament


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Keystone Heights' Nick
Verschaeve, who won the Section
4championshipinthe 199-pound
class, will be joined at the April
20-21 state weightlifting finals in
Kissimmee by fellow Keystone
lifter John McCormick and
Bradford's Phillip James, who
coinpetes in the same class as
-Verschaeve.
Verschaeve earned an
. automatic state berth at the
time he won the 199 class with


a 670-pound total at the April
5 Section 4 qualifying meet at
Baker County High School.
As sectional meet results were
compared from throughout the
state, McCormick and James also
earned state berths. McCormick
was the Section 4 runner-up in
the 154 class with a 535 total,
while James placed third in the
'199 class at the Section 4 meet.
Verschaeve has the best overall
total of all the state-qualifying
lifters in the 199 class. His total
is 30 pounds better than that

Cole Williams (right) is pictured with his trainer, Alvin
iopez, after winning the 65cc modified class for
.10-11-year-olds at the GNC.International Motocross
Final.


MOTO
Continued from fB

conditions at the track for his
second moto. Prior to competing
in a 65cc modified open race-
th wound up placing fifth in that
division-a strong wind began
blowing, and the temperature
dropped significantly.
"Chrissy said she thought to
herself things were still OK as
long as it didn't begin raining.
="As soon as they were in
position for the gate to drop and
go, it started pouring," she said.
:The rain stopped by the time
Cole was set to compete in the
65cc modified class he won the
championship in.
';'It was muddy, windy and
~tal still," Chrissy said. "It
ws, probably 40 degrees out at
thlt point, but he got out front."
Another rider-Parker
Mashburn-rode up beside
Cole, but Cole knew he would
still win the overall race even if
Mashburn crossed the finish line
first in that second moto.


"Instead of getting all crazy, he
just relaxed and let Parker go,"
Chrissy said. "He got a second.
With a first and a second, he got
the overall title."
Cole admitted he wasn't
thinking too much during the
race.
"I was just telling myself,
'Stay up in the mud,'" he said.
Besides winning the 65cc
modified arid plaUng fiTth in th8
65cc modified open, Cole took
seventh in the stock division.
Following the GNC event,
it was off to Pell City, Ala., for
another national event.
"I didn't do very good there,"
Cole said, but his mother said,
"Yeah, you did, but we had
mechanical problems with our
bikes."
Cole's worst finish was fourth
in a race that was plagued by
sparkplug cap issues. The first
issue arose when Cole was
preparing to pass a rider for third
place. The second issue arose
during a race in which Cole had
the lead.
Chrissy said the bright side was


of James and Baker County's
Kendrick Singleton.
In the 154 class, McCormick
has the sixth best total among
those qualifying for state.
The top six in each weight
class at the Florida High School
Athletic Association Finals will
earn medals.
Verschaeve earned a medal
last year when he placed third in
the 199 class.
McCormick placed 11th in the
154 class at last year's finals.


that the second issue didn't occur
until just after Cole had navigated
a huge jump. If the sparkplug cap
had come off while Cole was in
the air, it would've been a "recipe
for disaster," Chrissy said.
"It was bad luck," Chrissy
said, "but we came home all in
one piece and with a nice trophy
(from the GNC event)."
Cole now has his sights set on
this year'sAmerican Motorcyclist
Association Amateur National
Motocross Championships,
which will take place July 29-
Aug. 4 at Loretta Lynn Ranch in
Hurricane Mills, Tenn. He had
a 38t-place finish there in 2010
and a 27th-place finish last year.
With the win at the GNC
event, though, Cole has now put
himself into the group of some of
the best riders.
"Right now, there are about
eight kids nationwide who are
really fast," Chrissy said. "They
were swapping who was winning
titles, so there is no clear winner
going into the amateur national
in August. It will be a fun race to
watch.
"It's .anybody's game right
now."
Cole admitted he's a better
rider now than because he has
gotten better at handling the
mental aspects of racing.
, "You can be,the.best rider in
the world,""fie said, "but if you
don't have a good mental game,
you're not going to be up there."

BHS junior varsity baseball


team wins Interlachen tourney


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Strong pitching and unselfish
play helped the Bradford
junior varsity baseball team
win Interlachen's annual
tournament-something the
Tornadoes have not done in at
least seven to eight years, coach
Robbie Best said.
"I think we surprised some
folks," Best said.
Bradford won three games to
win the tournament, which was
the start of a five-game winning
streak en route to an overall 8-5-
2 season.
The tournament began with a
9-1 win over Keystone Heights.
Pitcher Wyatt Barnes recorded
10 strikeouts, while Jackson
Reddish hit three doubles. David
Hall, Jacob Luke and Justin
Willianis each 'reached base
three times, with Hall scoring
all three times. David Best hit a
double, while Kenny Brown had
an RBI;
Reddish was the pitcher in
the next game, a 5-2 win over
Palatka. He had five strikeouts,
allowed one hit and forced seven
groundouts. The remaining outs
were ffyouts.
"He did a great job of hitting
his locations," Best said.
At the plate, Reddish hita
double and had an RBI, while
Luke hit a double and a home
run. Barnes hit a double as well.
The Tornadoes faced the host
team in the championship game,
defeating Interlachen 12-1. Luke
pitched, striking out eight.
Barnes hit two doubles and
a single, while Reddish had a
double and a single. Best, Hall,
Luke and Williams each hit two
singles.
"They worked hard," Best
said of his players. "It's tough to
win three games in a week likb
that."
Bradford batters were patient
at the plate with a collective on-
base percentage of better than
.600. Plus, Best said every player
was willing to do what was asked


of him, such as moving runners
over with sacrifices and letting
someone else get the RBI hits.
"The unselfishness of the team
was apparent," Best said.
Prior to the tournament, the
Tornadoes suffered two one-run
losses sandwiched around a 7-4
win over West Nassau. They
had a tie against Suwannee right
before the, tournament.
After the tournament,
Bradford defeated Keystone
4-2 and Interlachen 6-0. The
Tornadoes also recorded another
win over Interlachen (14-4) and
a win over Williston (4-2), while


settling for a tie against Santa Fe
and losing to Williston, Baker
County and twice to Fort White.
"We were very competitive
even against some of the best
teams we faced," Best said.
Best said he asks three things
of his players: do your job before
trying to do someone else's, give
110 percent and have fun. Doing
the first two, he said, ensures the
third will happen.
"Those three things really
translated into a successful
season for those guys," Best
said.


Appreciate everything your associates do for the
business. Nothing else can quite substitute for a
few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise.
They're absolutely free and worth a fortune.
-Sam Walton

KHHS' Semione to play

volleyball at Warner University


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Keystone Heights High School
senior Taylor Semione signed a
letter of intent to play volleyball'
at Warner University in Lake
Wales during a scholarship
signing at KHHS on April 13.
"I'm speechless right now,"
Semione said after the papers
had been signed and pictures
taken. "I'm so excited."
Keystone head coach Belinda
Phillips, who also coaches
Semione in softball, said the plan
was to get Semione involved in
tryouts for softball shortly, but
Semione then got the chance to
play volleyball at Warner.
"I like playing both (sports),"
Semione said, "but I've always
looked forward to volleyball
practice. I definitely chose
volleyball because of that."
Christine Moskovits,'who is
entering her first ytar as head
volleyball coach at Warner, said
Warner's former coaches gave
her Semione's name as a player
to pursue.
"We brought her in with
some of the other, recruits
(former coaches) had given me,"


TIGERS
Continued from 9B
"each other in a 7 p.m. semifinal
game.
The semifinal winners will play
each other for the championship
on Thursday, April 26, at 7 p.m.
Earlier results:

Newberry 7 UCHS 3
Host Newberry scored six runs
in the sixth inning in handing-the
Tigers a 7-3 district loss on April
10.


Moskovits said. "She was just
a standout from the beginning.
You could tell she got along very
well with the other girls, knew
the game, had a very good IQ.
and a very good work ethic."
Semione said the school
proved to be a good match..
"Warner has a beautiful
campus, it's. a Christian
school and the people are so
welcoming," she said. "It just fit
everything I wanted."
Phillips said Semione's drive
to always be better helped give
her this opportunity.
"If she does something
wrong, she wants to know right
then what she can do to fix it,"
Phillips said.
There was a time where
Semione didn't serve, for
example, but this past season she
was one of the team's leaders in
points and aces.
As for another area of
improvement, Semione said it
will have to be her vertical game
at the net.
"I'm not as tall as most outside
hitters," S mione said. "I'm'
going to do a lot of leg workouts
to get better at that."


Cothrei and Troy Kite eiac
had an RBI, while Harden and
Cole Kite were each 2-for-4.


UCHS 2 P.K. Yonge 1
The Tigers scored a run in the
bottom of the seventh todefeat
the visiting P.K. Yonge, Blue
Wave 2-1 on April 11.
Cole Kite and Troy Kite drove
in both runs, with Troy Kite
going 2-for-3.
SPitcher Dustin Hersey (6-2)
gave up one unearned run on six
hits and one walk. He had nine
strikeouts in the complete-game
performance.

Moskovits said the
improvement will come and
complement her already existing
strong points.
"We talked a little bit about
front row with her being an
outside hitter and having to
work on her vertical," Moskovits
said, "but other than that,
defensively she brings a big
game, communicates well with
other players and is just going to
be a huge asset to what we have
already."
Semione is the third Keystone
volleyball player this year to sign
a college letter of intent, joining
St. Johns River College signees
Chelsea Harvin and Megan
Zinkel.
"That just shows how much
talent our team had this year and
how much potential the rest of
them have," Semione said.
Helping. give players such
.opportunities is what Phillips
said she loves to do.
"That's my goal as a coach-
whoever wants to play college
ball, we'll find them some place
to go," she said.
Now that Semione will soon
be off to college, she can't even
imagine what she'll feel like in
her first-ever game for Warner.
"I don't evii khow what I'll
feel like, but it's going to be
amazing," Semione said.
