-Summertime
is the time to
give blood
-The next time you climb into
_your car in the afternoon and the
seats and the steering wheel are
just slightly cooler than a fully
fired charcoal grill, think of it as
a reminder that it's a good time to
donate blood.
Summer, when school is out
and families hit the road for vaca-
tions, is a time when donors are
in short supply, but the need for
blood is as strong as ever. If it's
been a while since you donated,
there's no better time than now.
In about the time it would take
to shop for groceries for a week
or knock out a crossword puzzle a
blood donor can save a life.
Donors must be 17 or older, or
16 with parental consent, weigh a
minimum of 110 pounds and be
in good health. A photo ID is also
required. Donors get cookies and
a cool T-shirt. Roll up your sleeve
this summer. LifeSouth really
needs your help.
Be a member of the Lawtey
Community lifesaving team. Look
for the bloodmobile near the fire
station in Lawtey on Saturday,
June, 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hot
dogs and sodas will be served.


Debby's deluge



Bradford copes with flooding


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor

Tropical Storm Debby dropped
over seven inches of rain on Bradford
County early Monday, causing exten-
sive flooding throughout the area.
Most of the flooding occurred
around Alligator Creek and the drain-


age canals leading into the waterway.
In the neighborhood west of the
Starke Golf and Country Club, hom-
eowners awoke Monday to water near
or in their homes.
First Baptist Church pastor Blake
Albritton said the floodwaters got to
within five feet of his home when he
first looked out the window around 7


a.m.
But residents along the southern por-
tion of Northeast 15"' Place appeared
to bear the brunt of the flooding, when
the western downslope coming off the
golf course's fifth hole brought a wide
band of water that hit the street on its
way to Alligator Creek, one block to
the west.


While his mom kept an eye on him and helped residents with water in their apartments at
Orangewood, Robbie Ree/se hopped into his bathing suit and onto the swing set.


Patricia \W ain,, rihi. .a iFiii rade
teacher at Starke Elementary School
said when she reached the home of
her friend, Tom Smith, who was out
of town, flood waters were ankle-deep
inside the home.
"We've been battling this since 6
a.m.," she said.
Wainwright and a cadre of family,
friends and neighbors stacked sand-
bags around the front of the home
diverting the westerly water flow as
it made its way across Northeast 151h
Place front of the home into Alliga-
tor Creek, which is behind the struc-
ture. They then pumped water out of
the house.
Emergency Management official
Michael Heeder said that both he and
County Manager Brad Carter surveyed
the area and' met with residents.
Heeder said the unique topography
of the area was both a blessing and
curse to neighborhood residents.
"The good news is that it drains re-
ally fast," he said of the.cascade over
Northeast 15th Place. "The bad news
is if you have a house facing east, you


are i;rg ii ha'.c problems."
Street i.xo ing occurred further"
downstream, on Bessent Road near
Valley Road and on Bradford Drive,
which leads to the Heritage Villas
Apartment Complex.
Across the street from Heritage Vil-
las, Bradford Drive resident Crystal
Disher said she woke up around five
and discovered her car was under wa-
ter. While waiting on a tow truck, run-
off began'seeping in the front door.
Shortly thereafter, the water was one
foot deep in her living room.
Waste-deep water covered the.
northern end .of Bradford Drive,
which lies about 100 feet from Alliga-
tor Creek. :,
The creek also overran its banks.
between Call and Laura Streets. The
waterway formed a lake between the
FPL and city of Starke electric sub-
stations near the Call Street Bridge
and flooded Wilson Road near Laura
Street as well as Laura and Redgrave'
Streets.
To the southeast, at least two homes
on Southgate Drive were damaged


near a drainage ditch that parallels
Parker Streef, then empties into an-
other on Wilson Road.
Southgate Drive resident Silvia
Quiette said her barking dog woke
her early Monday. When she got out
of bed, she stepped into two feet of
water. .She could not open her front
door because the water level outside
the house was higher than inside, cre-
ating pressure, which kept the door
closed. She eventually used a neigh-
bor's phone to call relatives.
In the business district of Starke, the
predictable flooding along U.S. 301
between the courthouse and Market
Road occurred. Starke police called
in six additional officers to reroute
traffic off the four-lane and onto M'ar-
ket Road, through Old Lawtey Road,
to Brownlee, then back to 301. One
semi got stuck on Old Lawtey Road,
forcing police to alternate northbound
and southbound traffic along the
street.


See FLOOD, 4A


According to an FHP. report, Stephen Cubbedge, 28, of Lawtey was driving the F-150 seen in this
photo westbound on S.R. 16 around 6 a.m. Monday. As he approached the intersection of U.S.
301, he experienced what a trooper wrote was a medical issue and crashed into an unoccupied
Starke police cruiser. The patrol vehicle was parked north of the intersection, blocking northbound
301 traffic from continuing to a flooded section of the highway. Emergency workers transported
Cubbedge to Shands Starke with minor injuries. FHP filed no charges.


County

orders

monument

removed

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The county commission and not
atheist activists could be responsible
for the removal of the Ten Command-
ments monument at the courthouse.
A letter sent by County Manager
Brad Carter on June 11 to the Com-
munity Men's Fellowship provided
formal notice for the immediate re-
moval of the monument.
A June 26 letter from the attorney
representing the men's group, Dan
Sikes, stated the group would not
comply with the order. According to
Sikes, the group is prepared to file a
lawsuit of its own against the county if
that's what,it takes to keep the monu-
ment in place.
The county's request is not being
made because officials believe they
would lose the lawsuit filed by Ameri-
can Atheists Inc. In fact, Carter said
the county believes the allegations in
- the lawsuit-that the county has vio-
lated the separation of church and state
by showing religious favoritism- lack
merit.
According to Carter, the county
doesn't want to expend taxpayer dol-
lars defending against those allega-
tions.

Moore fires

Farnsworths
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Word spread quickly last week that
Superintendent Beth Moore had fired
Chad Farnsworth, one of her oppo-
nents in this year's election, and his
wife, Jennifer, from their assistant
principal positions at Bradford High
School.
As was true of controversial em-
ployment decisions she's made in the
past, Moore had little to say on the
subject. Contacted about her reasons
for not renewing the Farnsworths'
contracts and the resulting outcry,
Moore responded saying she was at a
conference out of town and had little
time to respond.
"I will say, however, that even
though Chad and Jennifer's annual
contracts as administrators were not
renewed, they were both encouraged
to apply for a teaching position in the
district," Moore wrote in an email, and
that was all she chose to share.
"We feel the decisions made do
not take into account the best inter-
est of the students, teachers, and staff
in the Bradford County School Dis-
trict," said Chad Farnsworth, who
posted news of the firings via his and
his wife's shared Facebook page last
week. They expressed their gratitude
for the time they were able to spend
working at Bradford High School, and
for the students and colleagues who
made that time special.
After that post, the comments came
rolling in, full of appreciation for the
Farnsworths' work as well as disbelief
and frustration with the superinten-
dent's decision.
"The enormous outpouring of love
and support from our community with
visits, phone calls, and messages has
meant more than words can express,"
said Chad. "Our hearts will never truly
be separated from the Bradford Coun-
ty School District. We are hoping
the employment separation from th(
schools in Bradford is a brief one."

Animal shelter floods, five dogs drown


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com editor
Floodwaters from nearby Alli-
gator Creek inundated the Brad-
ford animal shelter early Mon-
day, drowning four puppies and
a dog, and forcing the sheriff's
office to relocate the surviving
animals to the Bradford Fair-
grounds.
..Sheriff's Capt. Carol Starling
said the shelter's Edwards Road
location, adjacent to the creek,
has been under flood threat be-
fore.
."We have taken the animals to
the fairgrounds in the past, usu-
ally when a hurricane was ap-
proaching," she said.
"Starling added that she and oth-
er-county officials were watchful
of -approaching thunderstorms
Sunday night. However, she
thought a recent cleanup of the
creek reduced the flood risk, and
she did not anticipate the large
amount of rainfall that occurred
in the early morning hours of
Monday.
Starling said one of her staff
members checked the shelter

"We have reviewed the al-

amincertain you recall, however,
the board of county commission-
ers has, on numerous occasions,
expressed its position that no tax-
payer funds may be spent with
regard to the placement of any
monuments at the courthouse."
With that, Carter instructed the
group to immediately remove the
TOn Commandments monument
from courthouse property.
'"I regret that we find ourselves
in4 this position," Carter wrote,

he was first elected that his staff has had to evacuate the

county for any expenses incurred
in defending its free speech.
However, if the county fails to
do so and persists in the order to
remove the monument, Commu-

file suit against the county.
"This will necessitate our re-
quest for attorney fees and costs
from the county in the pursuit of
the protection of our constitu-
tional right to free speech," Sikes
wrote.
That means the county com-
mission could have to. decide
between fighting the Ameri-
can Atheists' lawsuit-with the
Community Men's Fellowship

dollars incurred-or facing the
Christian men's group in court,

stands for something defines a

Sikes wrote.
A separate press release from

:Tom Smith's home near the golf course had water running through it, but while Smith
was out of town, his neighbors pitched in to pump the water out and build a sandbag
barrier to prevent further flooding.


Drew Wainwright primes the pump to get water away
from Tom Smith's home.


Volunteer Tracy George and Sheriff's Capt.
Carol Starling assemble a kennel at the Bradford
fairgrounds, preparing the facility for refugees
from the county's flooded animal shelter. Also
pictured is deputy Julie Baldwin.


Neighbors check in with Julia Griffin who had water up to her
doorstep at her home on Redgrave Street.


FLOOD"
Continued from 1A
Around 6 a.m., Stephen S.
:Cubbedge, 28, of Lawtey was
driving a 2001 Ford F-150.west-
:bound on S.R. 16 approaching
:U.S. 301. An unoccupied police
car was stationed on the highway
just north of the intersection, pre-
Yenting northbound 301 traffic
from proceeding on the four-lane
because of flooding.
According to a Florida High-
way Patrol report, Cubbedge
experienced some type of medi-
cal issue and crashed the F-150
into the cruiser, pushing the pa-
trol vehicle into a fire hydrant.
Emergency. workers transported
the driver to Shands Starke with
-minor injuries.
Starke Police Capt. Barry War-
ren said the driver of the pickup
.had a seizure just before the acci-
dent. He said the seizure contin-
die'd after the collision, resulting

truck's back wheels.
FHP did not file charges relat-
ing to the collision.
At Bradford County's animal
shelter, four puppies and a dog
drowned after the facility was
covered in about one foot of wa-
ter.
Volunteers, inmates and depu-
ties evacuated the surviving ani-
mals to the fairgrounds.
Heeder said that he opened
one of three gates regulating wa-
ter from Sampson Lake into the
Sampson River around 6 p.m.
Sunday. Around 9 a.m. the fol-
lowing day, workers opened the
remaining two valves. However,
throughout Monday, county offi-
cials fielded complaints that the
gates remained closed. Heeder
said that gates appeared closed,
because floodwaters were so high
they went over the gates, even
though they were open. At one
point Monday, Heeder returned
to the site to verify the gates
were fully open, and took along a


nasium. Teen night is for grades
five through 12. Admission is $3.
Volunteers are welcome!

Other areas of the county also
faced flooding, especially those
close to creeks and canals, like
Water Oak Creek as it passed
through Morgan Road (North-
west C.R. 233), Crawford -Road
(Northwest C.R. 216), S.R. 16
and P.D. Reddish Road (North-
west 74th Avenue).
The slow moving tropical
storm continued to pelt north
Florida throughout the week,
soaking an already saturated
landscape. On Tuesday night
Starke Police again shut down
U.S 301 between S.R. 16 and
Market Road, county officials
and the Red Cross held open a
storm shelter at Starke Elemen-
tary and residents of Pine Forest

wondered if they might have
to evacuate to the school, wea-
rily eyeing a fast-growing lake
between their complex and the

/ I live near a lake and have a
U / problem with aquatic weeds. What
can be done to control them?
Removal of aquatic weeds is regulated by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion. With few exceptions, aquatic weed removal
requires a permit, regardless of the method of re-
moval. Permit applications may be downloaded
from the commission's website, www.myfwc.
com/license/aquatic-plants/permit. Rules pertain-
ing to permitting also appear on the website. Per-.
mits must be renewed every three years.
There is no charge for initial applications or re-
newals.
The permit may specify one or more approved
methods of removal and includes a diagram indi-
cating where the area of control is located. If her-
bicides are permitted, they must be used in accor-
dance with labeling instructions.
I've held an aquatic plant management permit
,for my property on Kingsley Lake for a number
of years. It allows me to use hand removal or gly-
phosate, an herbicide. I purchase a product labeled
for aquatic use and add a spreader/sticker, as the
directions indicate, to help the herbicide adhere to
the plants. My biggest problem is torpedo grass,.
which is very difficult to eradicate, regardless of
method. M

thorne Hornets. I'll never forget the day one of my
classmates brought a huge--thankfully empty-
hornet nest to school.
*Believe it or not, these wasps perform a valu-
able service by destroying many insects that attack
cultivated and ornamental plants. However, nests
near homes can be a source of irritation; Unlike
honeybees, which die upon inflicting a single sting,
.yellowjackets may sting as often as they find a tar-
get. And, if they're injured, they release an "alarm
pheromone" that summons other members of the
colony to attack. For this reason, removal of a yel-
lowjacket nest may best be left to a professional.
If you have noticed a sudden, increase in yellow-
jacket activity, it might be due to the availability of
sugar sources, such as berries and flower nectars,
or over-ripened fruit. I remember spotting yellow-
jackets congregating on rotten citrus fruit in my
own yard. If you host an out-door picnic or party,
make sure that sweet items like soft drinks, ripened
fruits and watermelons are kept covered.
ARSNR If you grow fruit, pick it as soon as it rip-
AD ens and dispose of rotten pieces. Ensure
that lids on trash containers are secure.

Purple



pride

Every year on the first Friday
of June, the consumers at the
Arc of Bradford County are
treated like royalty on what has
become known as Purple Day. 1
Consumers are treated to a day
full of fun and games, but the
highlight every year is when
each consumer is presented
with a certificate that recognizes
his or her special qualities.
Consumers are recognized for
such personality traits as "Best .
Smile," or for their unique
skills, such as "Best Hot Dog
Cooker." In the end, it's all
about giving consumers a day
that's all about then, and if
you've ever attended a Purple
Day, you know the consumers
enjoy it immensely.

Prepare for flooding, improve safety


Union County and northern
Bradford County were under
a' flash flood warning Tuesday
afternoon, meaning that flooding
was either already occurring or
likely to occur in the near future.
:According to www.redcross.
org, there are things you can do
to be better prepared for possible
flooding situations.
Before the flood
When rainfall is heavy, you
should:
:* Listen to area radio and
television stations and a NOAA
Weather Radio for possible flood
warnings and reports of flooding,
in progress or other critical
information from the National
Weather Service (NWS).
* Be prepared to evacuate at a
moment's notice. :
* When a flood or flash flood
warning is issued for your area,
head for higher ground and stay
there.
Stay away from floodwaters.
if you come upon a flowing
stream where water is above your
ankles, stop, turn around and go-
another way. Six inches of swiftly
moving water can sweep you off
of your feet.
If you come upon a flooded.
road while driving, turn around
and go another way. If you are
caught on a flooded road and
waters are rising rapidly around
you, get out of the car quickly
and move to higher ground. Most
cars can be swept away by less
than two feet of moving water.
Keep children out of the
water. They are curious ,and often
lack judgment about running
water or contaminated water.
* Be especially cautious at night
when it is harder to recognize
flood danger.

(medication list and pertinent
medical information, deed/
lease to ho e, birth certificates,
insurance policies). -
Cell phone with charger.
Family and emergency
contact information.
Extra cash.
Emergency blanket.
*. Map(s) of the area.

After the flood
After flooding occurs, there are
things you should do to preserve
your safety:
Return home only when
officials have declared the area
safe.
Before entering your home,
look outside forloosepowerlines,
damaged gas lines, foundation
cracks or other damage.
Parts of your home may be.
collapsed or damaged. Approach
entrances carefully. See if porch
roofs and overhangs have all
their supports.
Watch out for wild animals,
especially poisonous snakes that
may have come into your home


with the floodwater.
If you smell natural or
propane gas or hear a hissing
noise, leave immediately and
call the fire department.
If power .lines are down
outside your home, do not step in
puddles or standing water. +, .
Keep children and pets
away from hazardous sites and
floodwater.
Materials such as cleaning

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
John Faulkner admitted there
was a time in his life when it
would have been "crazy" for
him to think he would enter the
ministry, but once he heard the
calling., there was no hesitation
on his part.
Faulkner, the new pastor at
First Christian Church in Starke,
said he went to church growing
up, but it could better be described
as being dragged there by his
family. He did become more
actively involved because of his
wife, Kristina, but never gave a
thought to actually pursuing a
career in ministry.
One Sunday at Christ's
Church in the Mandarin area of
Jacksonville changed that.
"I was just listening to the
message," Faulkner said. "I
don't know what it was, but I just
really had that tug on my heart.
I looked over at my wife, and I
said, 'I think God's calling me to
be a preacher.'"
Faulkner said he had fought
God for so much of his life that
he was willing to give his life
totally over to God at that point.
He had a good job managing
a restaurant-in fact, offers of
other jobs with better pay in the
area he lived came his way-and
he and his family had a nice
home. As Faulkner put it, it was
not like he and his family had to
get out of town or make a change
in their lives.


"We stepped out in faith, and
God has totally supported us,"
Faulkner said. "I really believe
that's why we're here today.
We just stepped out on faith.
God's faithful to those who are
faithful."
Becoming the pastor at First
Christian Church is simply the
latest in a series of events that
showed Faulkner and his family
that God was in control.
Faulkner was set to be a
career military man. He was in
the National Guard for seven
years and then in the Navy for
six. He and his wife were both
sonar technicians. They became
friends going through training ip
NSan Diego, hanging out togetheOr
after classes. At first, they never
could've imagined there would
be anything to their relationship
beyond being friends.
"It started to get close to time
to get our orders," Faulkner said.
"We were like, 'We don't want
to be away from each other,' and
realized we really were in love
with each other. We were able to
get married while we were in San
Diego."
Faulkner had just been
promoted to first class, but
sustained an injury in which he
broke his elbow in three places.
He had two surgeries, but was
unable to continue full-duty
service in his resulting condition.
He received a medical discharge.

Pat on the
back to the
Farnsworths
Dear Editor:
I'm so terribly sorry to hear
of the events and as an alumni/
friend, I feel compelled to speak
on their behalf.
Bradford Country School
System is where we met. I
called on Jenn years ago to
take on a position that didn't
pay and offered few benefits
(organization adviser). This did
not deter Jenn or Chad from
applying themselves even though
scheduling was often tight. This
position required time, money,
and effort that was given freely
and without hesitation. Often 1
would ask middle school students
\\hy they were in the club. The
normal response was "because
of. Mr. and Mrs. Farnsworth." It
is: through Chad and Jenn that
students learn to believe in
something; "themselves'." The
pair (Chad and Jenn) are living'
testaments to faithful dedication
ai'd I know the future holds great
things in store for them.
;I do not know the specifics
surrounding the decision. This,
time, is not important. The loss,
tlie contributions, and the simple
jqy they both brought to my life,
the lives of others, and to their
classroom will be sorely missed.
I respectt them, their service, and
thIeir unwavering support'of me
over the years. Together I'm
confident they will both continue
to shape and mold the good in
e.ery student. Their dedication
to education is unshakable and
should be modeled in every
classroom. My best to them,
b th! I can think of no one.

What is code
enforcement
for?
Dear Editor:
-Tuesday of this week I
c6ritUtcted 'Sgt. Shufor % AdP
enforcement officer, concerning
a: neighbor letting his garbage
collect for months in the bed of
his truck. Shuford told me he
,mould get right on it.
' Today I called him to find
(fut if he had a chance, to look
iftto the situation. He informed
nie that he had been out here
aid the collection of garbage
i, a truck was not against the
ctding ordinances. He said that
there are no coding ordinances
against garbage being in a truck
in the back yard. He said being
i!E a truck meant that the garbage
xgould be taken off. He said that
he was going to try to work With
tAe individual and persuade him
E, get rid of the garbage on a
d4ily basis. He said that there
Was no coding ordinance that
says limbs falling on fences have
tb be cleaned up.
Shuford knows what a problem
if is trying to get individuals
out here to clean up anything,
liecause it took him five months
ts get another person to bring
l~is property up to code. Now
aid 'property is almost back like
ii:was. If there were no coding
oidinances against collection
7 garbage, why 'didn't he tell
qii this when I called him on
Tuesday?
Needless to say. I got very
Epset. He got upset "with me. I
tpId him that in Clay County
Qiere were coding officers who

The faithful
five...
Dear Editor:
I am writing this letter in
response to a severe injustice
that has recently taken place in
my community. I have never
.written a letter to the editor of a
newspaper before and I am truly
saddened by the circumstances
that have compelled me to do so
now.
I have lived in the Keystone/
Starke area most of my life. I am
the mother of three wonderful
kids who have attended school at
Keystone Community Christian
School for a combined total of 13
years. I- have never regretted my
decision to enroll my children
in this school and have always
been more than satisfied with
the education they have received
while attending here. That is
why I am completely heartbroken
at the news I received from
numerous concerned parents
last week over the "firing" of
five faithful teachers, some of
which have been on staff since
the inception of the school. I
have spoken with three of the
five teachers involved about this'
matter. These are the teachers my
children have had the privilege
to learn from. Not one of these
women was given a "reason" for
their dismissal..
Now I realize in the great
state of Florida employers are
not required to give employees
ia "reason" for termination,
but you had better be. ready to


U


explain to the parents who are
writing the tuition/donation
checks that keep your school
afloat why you would do such
an utterly despicable thing to
such dedicated employees. I find
it strange that not .one person
seems ready to accept blame for
this action, not the church pastor,
not the headmaster of CCS, not
the Board of Directors. It seems
they all want to blame God for
this injustice since everyone has
".prayed about the matter" and
"God has a plan."
So now let us pour some salt
in the wound. Several of these
teachers are facing personal
struggles, but all have remained
100 percent dedicated to our
children while on staff. That's
right, these 'exceptional teachers
were simply' told "your contract
is not being renewed for. next
year"' and "you just aren't part'of
our plan for CCS next year."
Parents, I am worried! If the
"plan" calls for firing five of your
most loyal teachers, do we really
want to be a part of this? I can
only speak for myself when I say
that I have made several attempts
to contact the headmaster to no
.avail. I have been told she will
return my.calls "after the closed
board meeting regarding this
matter" but I am still waiting
for some well-deserved, truthful
answers. And you may have a
harder time getting through now
that the school secretary/nurse
has resigned as well.
My hope is that all those who
read this letter will take a stand
for what is right, especially those
who have a vested interest like
myself. These ladies deserve
their jobs back. Though some
may refuse and who could blame
them? "Someone" should be on
their hands and knees asking
forgiveness for the deceitful
manner in which this whole
thing took place, not only from
the "faithful five," but from God
as well.

Stand up for
what is right
Dear Editor:
My name is Paige Smith
Anderson and I am a proud native
of Bradford County. Growing
up in Starke, my father owned
a business, I went to Bradford
County schools my entire life
and all of my family and friends
still reside in the one place I will
always call home.
I still keep a very close eye
on the happenings in Starke,
most of the time with pride and
appreciation of where I am from.
I enjoy the family- oriented
foundation and the recognition
of "'kinfolk."
Even now, living in New
Orleans I hear the going-ons of
the town, buildings being built,
businesses coming into town
and sometimes the politics,
campaigns and people I know
being elected by people I trust
into local leadership.
The school system in Bradford
County has always been close
to my heart. My entire life I
have been connected to the
school system, not only as a
student, but many of my family
members are educators and
school administrators. I have an
unexplainable amount of respect
for the job and the responsibilities
that come with it.
In recent years the discussions
with family and friends has
changed when talking about
schools in the area. The
discussions now are about the


r
a

hi


gI ep WWw.u


number of teachers who are
leaving for other counties and the
doubts in the leadership.
Being so far from home, I
am somewhat of an outsider in
not having direct contact with
the schools but only hearing
the voices of the parents that I
know, along with the teachers
I have known most of my life.
People I trust shared concern
over teachers leaving the school
system due to mismanagement
and personal vendettas. This was
disappointing to me.
On June 21, I realized these
were not just stories but truths
about the state of the Bradford
County school system. I was
appalled to be informed that
Chad and Jennifer Farnsworth
were let go from their positions
with Bradford High School.
Regardless that there was no
full explanation, other than
their "services were no longer
needed," the facts are that these
two individuals have been
instrumental in improving the
Bradford County school system,
with little or no support from the
superintendent's office.
For almost a decade, Chad
and Jennifer have poured their
lives into the education of your
children, grandchildren, nieces
and nephews and I can't help
but think, "is this yet another
personal vendetta?" Is this
because Mr. Farnsworth is now
an opponent in the upcoming
superintendent of schools race? I
would hope not. However, I find
it very ironic Ms. Moore ran in
2008 on a platform concerned

about bullies in our school
system, but it appears to me that.
she has become the biggest bulfyi"
in the schools. _
There was absolutely no-
concern for the best interest of,
the studefits in Bradford 'CounWt
when this decision was made.
The position of superintendegp
of schools is designated to lead'
the school system and improve
education for all .students, this
decision does not reflect that
whatsoever. I know Beth Moore.
I attended church with her and her
family years ago. I am stunned-
that two 15-minute meetings-arid
the explanation of her "praying i
about it" is adequate in dismissing .
administrators that are dedicated. i
to the lives of students in the oqr
county, our home... our future.
My only thought falls back to,.,
the fact that Chad Farnswortih"
announced his decision to oppose "
Ms. Moore in the superintendents'
race, and a personal vendetta
was created. I have longed to6f
move home closer to my family
and friends, but in honesty, ;:l,
would not want my children toli
go to school i'n a system run by
Ms. Moore. There is no place in-,
such a small town that thrives ohR,
values, history and families for,,
such unwarranted disregard fo""'
the future of our children and'"

Griffis
sentenced to
17.5 years
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJourhal.com editor
A federal judge sentenced
Bradford resident Doyce Dean
Griffis to 17.5 years in prison
Tuesday.
The former tanning bed opera-
tor secretly recorded clients of
his self-service tanning salon,
while they disrobed, over a 10-
year period beginning in 2000.
The 49-year-old pleaded guilty
in February to five counts of pro-
ducing child pornography. The
judge also sentenced Griffis to
I years probation.
Bradford deputies arrested
Griffis in April 2011, after one
ofthis customers said she thought
she saw a red light behind one of
the mirrors in the room the tan-
ning bed was in, -possibly indi-
cating the presence of a camera.
State prosecutors charged him
with 20 counts of voyeurism and
four counts of possession of child
pornography.
In September a Jacksonville
grahd jury *indicted the 49-year-
old on federal child pornography
charges.

Cameron A. Myers recently
completed United States Navy
basic training at Recruit Training

Ig During the eight-week
program, Myers completed a
gradu- variety of training which included


classroom study and practical
instruction on naval customs,
first aid, firefighting, water safety
and survival, and shipboard and
aircraft safety. An emphasis was'
also placed on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations." This
exercise gives recruits the skills
and confidence they need to
succeed in the fleet. It is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice, dedication,
teamwork and endurance in each
recruit through the practical
application of basic Navy skills
and the, core values of honor,
courage and commitment. Its
distinctly "Navy" flavor was
designed to take into account
what it means to be a sailor.
Myers is the son of Courtney

an adverse story or claim against
the late resident of Bradford
County who owned thousands
of acres of land, but not one foot
outside the county. On those rare,
-i occasions he went out of the
county, he made every attempt
"to return to the county to sleep.
He simply said he slept better in
i S Bradford County than elsewhere,
t and returning to the county, he
would say, "The pine trees look
better in Bradford."
During his lifetime, he made
a one trip out of state, according to
his family, and that was to visit a

Although wealthy by most
standards, he always bought

scars (cat faces) on

10-foot butts with
turpentine scars were
cut off and left in
the woods as being
worthless.
Smith bucked the
tide. He boxed only
the trees on his own
land.
The term "boxing"
refers to- the process
of getting gum from
the trees, in which
trees are scarred
With a special knife,
causing the gum to
flow into containers,
which are thep
gathered by a crew
and transported to the
still for processing.
The tree is cut one streak higher
at regular intervals to keep the
gum flowing, with the scarring
reaching about 10 feet in height.
Early on, operators utilized terra
cotta cups, but they were fragile,
and operators eventually began
using metal cups for collections.
The Smith still was one of the
larger facilities in the state, with
vat in which the gum was cooked
about 20-25 feet across and 6-8
feet deep. In his barnyard, Smith
had 50 big, strong mules for
pulling wagons, which were used
for"dipping" gum that is.going
into the woods and emptying the
collection containers from the
trees into a bucket. which, when
filled, was transferred to the
wagon.
The clothes worn by the dippers
became saturated with pine gum
and were never washed since
there was nothing that wxuld
remove the gum. Workers put
the same gum-coated clothing
on each morning until they were
worn out..
Fifty dipping crews in the field
required approximately 200 or
more workers during the gum-
flowing season. In the winter,


workers hoed around pine trees
to decrease the damage from
woods fires.
Smith knew the psychology of
his workers and never worked
them on Mondays. It was the
"sober-up day," a day on which
.the workers did their own thing,
of patching harness, greasing
wagon wheels or doing whatever
came to hand. They worked
Saturday mornings, giving them
a 4.5-day week.
Smith's workers were housed
in two areas: Sampson City and
Lincoln City.
In the 1930s, Florida was
known as a free-range state
because it had no laws governing
free-roaming livestock. Cattle
(and other animals) ran free on
the wide savannahs of south
Florida, 'and with the small
population, there was room for
all without fencing. In north
Florida, which was geared to row
cropping,. people were forced to


fence they gardens and crbps to
protect them from their or their
neighbors' livestock.
It was the law, and people
accepted the situation as it was.
The cows and hogs roamed, the
streets of the small towns as they
did the woodlands, tearing, up
flower beds and eating vegetables
in the women's gardens. Women
were adamant in wanting
domestic animals removed from
city streets and yards.
In addition to destroying
yards and gardens, cattle were
killing people on the highways
by standing or sleeping on..the
warm,'dry highways in cold And/
or wet weather, especially during
the nights. With the advent of
better roads in the late 1920s and
1930s, up to 50,000 tourists were

shunned restaurants and ate from

empty, into the trash.They becanie

The number of cars and
trucks hitting cows became
an embarrassment to the state,
an4, Fuller Warren, in his
194, gubernatorial campaign,
advocated taking the cows off the
road. This position angered cattle
indftstry members in Florida and
co attributed to Warren beingdenied
a second term. However, it was
the right thing to do, and Smith,
altl ugh a cattleman, supported
Warren and immediately fenced
his,4),000 acres.
Ealier than that-maybe
1955-thepeopleofStarkebecame
disgruntled with cows ruining
theit flowers and vegetables,
and;roaming free throughout the
city JThey demanded relief from
the Edestruction. Smith, young
and not nearly so powerful as
he.would become, advanced the
idea' of fencing the city. Now,
fencing a city may not have been
an original idea, but Starke is the
only city to my knowledge that'
was fenced, with cattle guards
at eich street crossing. (Cattle
gap~were removed during or just
afteic World War II, according to
menfory.) -
Tf|e Empire Lumber Company,
in approximately 1900, completed
harvesting yellow pine throughout
nort -central Florida and moved
on. pId tram beds can be found
throughout Union County, where
the company built :roadbeds for
transorting timber to rail heads,
including the approximately
20,090 acres in Bradford and
Unijn counties. (Approximately
two | thirds was in Bradford
County.) The state began buying
the dut-over timberland for $5 per
acre the going price-around
191 and completed,the purchase
app ximately 10 years later.
Thle state owns a solid block-it
surrounds no islands of land-that

T5s Telegraph-Times-Monitor
correspondent has talked with
man- people concerning Smith,
and he same response has been
void time after time. .He was a
good man. He was generous, but
never talked about the land and
fot he gave away, or about the
otN charitable acts that went
unm ;iced or unknown. Gifts went
top jnily members, friends and
pe e down on their luck, and
so gifts were given over long
pe s of need..It was reported
by one official that Smith's
grocery .bill amounted to a $1,000
a month, which may very well
be. Smith provided for a dozen
or more people who put their
feet inder, his table every ddy in
addition to those he provided.for
outside his family.
Onre long-lasting gift he made
was a 172-acre farm on Market
Roaf, given to Future Farmers of
America on Sept. 21,1950, for the
young people in that organization.


The land is still owned and
operated by FFA membership.

The two families of Hogan
Smith
Smith met, courted and married
Willa Mae Knabb within a short
time of his arrival to Sampson
City in 1917 or 1918 because their
oldest child, Doshia Smith, was
born in 1921, according to Mary)
Edwards Mixon Rahn, a classmate
and close friend during those days.
Doshia married Artford Brown of
Brooker.
Other children were: Hogan
Smith Jr., Lewis Smith, Austin
Smith, Harold Smith and Mural,
Willa's niece who was reared in
the Smith home as a daughter. but
never adopted by Hogan and Willa
Mae. Although she was treated as
a daughter, she did not share in the
estate.
The siblings are deceased, but
descendents continue to live in the
area.
Willa Mae died with cancer in
the early 1930s, leaving Smith
with six children to attend to, with
Doshia being the oldest at about II1.
years old-too young to be running
a household and looking after four
young siblings and a cousin. More
than likely, as was custom in those
days, Smith engaged an elderly,
highly respected granny to take
care of the children, cook and keep
the house clean.
At the time Willa Mae was
stricken with cancer, her brother,
Dogan Knabb, was engaged to a
nurse, Eoline Weaver, who was
then living in Georgia. When
Knabb, an electrician, was killed
in a work-related accident, Smith
persuaded Weaver to take over the
care of Willa Mae, necessitating
Weaver moving to the Starke
area. In the course of time, Willa
Mae died, and Weaver sought
employment elsewhere in the area.
Life went on.
In the meantime, Weaver's
mother moved from Georgia to
Homestead, a small town south
of Miami known for growing
tomatoes.' Smith found himself
stretched too thin and realized he
needed .help to care for his home
and six children, and he knew the
person that possessed the required
credentials. More than that, he
realized he h>ad fallen in love with
Weaver.
Weaver and Smith were
betrothed, but she insisted on
going to Homestead and telling her
mother about the wedding plans.
On the way, the couple stopped in
'Titugville and were married.
The wedding was in 1933,
and Smith was on his way to
becoming the wealthiest and most
influential individual in Bradford
County. In the late 1950s-and
after 27 years of apparently happy
marriage-Smith and 'his second
wife divorced, but apparently
remained good friends and, at
times, associates. For the public,
it was announced the divorce was
undertaken to guarantee Eolina
a fair share of the estate. Smith
provided substantially for his
former wife with land and money.
However, she died within four
months of his death in 1982.
There were no other women in
Smith's life--ever.
Smith was not a joiner. While'
he was fiercely independent, he
felt some kinship with other cattle
owners and joined the Bradford-
Union Cattleman's Association,
becoming president of the local
group. No other memberships
turned up in his history.


In politics, he was atypical
southern Democrat of his time-
very conservative,but nota redneck.
He employed approximately 400
black Americans in his turpentine
venture and provided for them in
difficult times. (See the side story
about saving the black worker
from mob action).
Smith also provided for his white
workers. The family of Punch
Parrish lived on a Smith farm,
north of Starke when Parrish died,
and they faced a difficult time for
a lack of income. Smith provided
groceries for the family as long
as needed with no expectation of
being repaid. It was just something
he would do. That story could be
repeated many, many times, but his
generosity was unknown to many
friends and acquaintances.
Smith never agreed to either
of his daughters-Doshia and
JoAnn-getting married. He
wanted both to remain single and
remain at home. He refused to give
either of them away as custom,
and refused to go to either of their
weddings, though he approved of
the young. men-Artford Brown
and Jimmy Rowe-they were
marrying. While Smith was getting
dressed to go to Punch Parrish's
funeral, JoAnn asked him why he
would go to the funeral, buit refuse
to attend her wedding? He replied,
"Punch had to die," leaving unsaid
that JoAnn didn't have to get
married.
While he was firm in his
convictions, he was not a
disciplinarian, says JoAnn and
Tombo. Both agreed there were
rules to go by and hours to keep,
but there was never any corporal
punishment, not even a. spanking.
Apparently, Smith was a diplomat
extraordinaire, working hundreds
of men over a long period without
violence or threats of violence.
It wasn't a weakness; it was his
strength.
Smith was a man of vision who
built an empire when other men
were failing during the Depression
years. Just as he envisioned the
three-income-producing entities
and built them with a solid footing,
he saw the end of an era, and
dismantled his holdings in the best
interests of his family.
As mentioned earlier, prior to the
Gov. Fuller Warren administration
(1948-53), livestock ran free
across the Florida landscape, and
motorists were being killed as they
collided with cows and horses. The
sheer weights of the large animals
proved to be disastrous to vehicles
and passengers; but the Florida
cattlemen were- so ,strong that any
attempts to disrupt free range were
excommunicated, and attempts by
the legislature to. act on the matter
weredoomed. However,addressing
the issue was essential if Florida
was to live-up to its destiny, and
Warren pushed the issue.
This was an issue that Smith,
with 10,000 acres of land and a
thousand head of cattle, supported
also. When the ban on cattle
running loose was enacted, Smith
immediately fenced his entire
holdings.
Cattlemen-particularly those
in south Florida running cattle
on free, state-owned land-were
opposed to Warren, and although
he ran for governor four times, it
is this group that kept him from
anOther term of office.
Fencing cattle had some
unintended consequences, unseen
by participants from both camps.
While operating under the open-
range rules and regulations,


cattlemen would burn the woods
each winter just after the first frost
to expedite the growing of green
grass. The fires destroyed the
underbrush, which was a haven
for turkey and deer. Those game
animals disappeared from the
Florida forests, except in Ocala
National Forest and other protected
areas.
When the new law stopped the
burning of the woods, underbrush
sprang up again, and grass on which
livestock grazed became stunted,
and the cattle industry was injured.
With many thousands of acres in
planted pines, productive land for
running cows became scarce, and
the large herds in north Florida
have diminished and have become
limited to large landowners.
Smith read the signs early, sold
off his herd and negotiated a 66-
year lease with Rayonier, one of
the larger landowners in Georgia
and Florida. The lease will expire
in 2017, and the owners will regain
control of the estate, which 'is
now down to 3,000 acres. Family
members individually own much
of the original tract.
In 1970, Smith divided Sampson
Lake waterfront property among
his eight children and former wife
since it was not included in the
Rayonier lease. The lots were sold
by the new owners, bringing some,
$15,000 each. However, one lot
sold for $85,000.
So the 1950s saw the end of an
era, in which running cattle became
much more difficult. For cattlemen
such as Smith, the time came to
dispose of .that segment of their
base. It was a difficult decision
for Smith to make, since running
cattle had been his ultimate dream
from day one. Now, it was gone.
He owned the necessary land, but
it would no longer support the
industry.
In the mid-1960s, the turpentine
business, based on pine rosin,
nosedived as chemists produced
the finished product from much
cheaper petroleum oil, completely
destroying gum production by local
businessmen-a way of life that


supported thousands of laborers
throughout the pine-growing
belt across the Southland. Leg
number two of the Smith empire
crumbled.
What can be said about the cattle
business? It has been a boom or
bust for all my adult years, with
as many fortunes lost as made
throughout north Florida. The
situation may be different in south
Florida, in the plains and savannahs
that produce grass the year round,
but small farmers across north
Florida keep small herds because
they have always done it.
There may come a time when
the Hogan Smiths of tomorrow
can duplicate the success of Smith
himself, but times have changed,
and the three basic industries Smith
excelled in do not appear on the
horizon as successful springboards
to wealthjustnow. Even then, when
success was possible with the stars
aligned, it took a special person to
accomplish the impossible.

Summing up the man
Hogan Smith worked all his
life and never participated in any
recreation. He never fished or
hunted. He never traveled outside
the state other than the one time
mentioned earlier in this story.
When he visited. Doshia and
her husband while they lived in


Sanford, he returned home that
evening, saying he "had to sleep
in Bradford County."
He had many acquaintances and
friends who shared confidences,
but Bufotd McKinney, perhaps
more than any other friend,
appears to have shared many
happy hours with him.
Smith apparently enjoyed good
health, but in the latter years his
eyes dimmed, ald he gave up
driving his car, walking from his
home into town..
In the fall of 1982, Smith was
83 and checked himself into the
Bradford County Hospital. He
seemed to have no particular
ailment, but he told his children
the time had come for him to
move on. Three weeks later he
was dead.
I regret our paths never crossed
and that I never knew him. He
was a true, Southern, country -
gentleman, a man among men,
gallant to the ladies and a true
conservative in politics. He made
a fortune without making an
enemy, an ability possessed by
few. He planned his life and lived ,
his plan. He lifted himself by his ?
own bootstraps, and itl the end,
he could look any man in the eye
and say, "I did it my way."

a with their service and potential
e ultimate sacrifice to this great
a country.
. The thing that bothers me
e most by this article is that if
' one remembers, Tropical Storm
Beryl was passing through Lake
y Butler on Memorial Day. The
Y VFW parade and its' ceremonies
t were cancelled because of the
v weather. We have a retired veteran
n on our staff, who also happens
to be the current commander of
VFW Post 10082, Sam Jenkins,
e who is a close friend of Past
e Commander William Fisher. As
a city employee, Mr. Jenkins had
a moral responsibility to protect
the integrity of the city. He has
recently been assigned, as part
of his job, to ensure that all flags
under the jurisdiction of the city
will be flown as required by any
special event or holiday. I have to
r notice, city hall has not received
r one complaint prior to the letter in
t the Union County Times. It's been
n 18 days since Memorial Day. Why
f hasn't Mr. Fisher expressed any
t concerns before now? Why do
t we have to learn of his complaint
r through the Union County
r Times? All councilmen and city
e staff are at all citizens' disposal,
y willing to assist them in any
s manner, at any time. Why would
e Mr. Fisher not notify one of them,
r. any of them, as to his thoughts
d in this matter? Why wouldn't he
Y protect his friend, and his friend,
f Sam Jenkins, protect the integrity
t of the city?
S. The majority of the article
n seemed to center around veteran
e Sam Jenkins and how terrible he
r was treated in his employment. I
preferred not to make this public
d but you need to understand the
s city's position and magnitude
n of the issue of his employ-
n ment. When Mr. Jenkins did not


receive the appointment to the
vacant maintenance position, he
entered City Hall, came to my
.office and proceeded to use some
of the most vulgar language I
have ever been exposed to. I had
to physically escort him out of
City Hall and told him I did not
have to listen to his language
and to come back when he could
do so professionally. He owes
the citizens of Lake Butler, the
city council and this writer an
apology for his crude and abusive
behavior.It wasafterthisencounter
that Mr. Jenkins pursued the legal
approach for his employment. The
com-mission made a very hard
but generous decision to create a
new, non-budgeted maintenance
position for him. I was advised
by one of his closest friends, Ms.
Susie Shaw who works for City
Hall, that Sam was not actually
interested in the job but would
"own the city" before he was
through. Mr. Hardy Clyatt, public
works director, told me, "I doubt
if Sam reports to his job. He
actually wants a slice of the city
pie." I and the city commission
painfully found out how true their
stateTments were. Mr. Jenkins
is telling everyone that, "all I
asked for was an apology!" An
apology for what? The city will
not compromise its integrity and
need for accountability by its
employees or applicants. We, as
city employees, are servants to
the citizens of Lake Butler. We
are accountable to them! If any
employee is disrespectful or uses
vulgarity when dealing with the
,public or each other, they will
be dealt with up to and including
dismissal from duties.

Recently, as I was researching
the Clay County supervisor of
elections' website, I saw three
write-ins listed. One under the
clerk of the court,one for District I
county commissioner, and one for
the school superintendent. I then
began to inquire what exactly this
meant. Well, guess what it means?
Everyone who is not a Republican
(over 58,000 individuals) cannot
vote in the Aug. 14 primary in
those three races. That's right.
Someone who has no intention of
really campaigning has had their
name placed on the ballot in order
to deny you your rights. Now, I
may not be a rocket scientist, but
I have to ask myself who would
do this and why. The answer
is simple. The candidate who
believes he has the most to gain
by denying you your God-given
right to vote.
Is this the type of candidate you
want to serve our county? If they
begin like this during campaigning
how will they serve our county?
While doing my research, .1
found that one of those write-in
candidates for the superintendent
of schools has signs in his yard
for, his opposition. Here is the
superintendent of schools write-
in's home complete with signs (not
his). I believe a picture is worth
a thousand words. Now is the
time for each of us to do our own
research about the candidates we
will choose in our next election.
What are your options if you
are not a Republican? One, you
can change your party affiliation
by completing a voter registration
form (what a travesty) for this
election and then change back to
the party of your original choice.
Two, you can begin contacting
the write-ins and questioning
them about their plans for the
office they are seeking (platform,
signage, fundraising, forums they
will be attending, etc.). Note: You
must have your change of party
affiliation done by July 16.
Please be outraged as I am and
cast your ballot for qualified,
experienced and reputable
candidates. We all have a right to
vote and as an American votes we
should not allow this dishonest
yet legal policy to persist.

Continued from 3B

When it came time to finding
a place to live, the decision
was made to move to Florida.
Faulkner's wife is a Florida
native, having grown up in the
Lakeland area, while Faulkner
was a New York native.
"Obviously, you're going to
go with the warmer weather,"
Faulkner said.
The call to preach occurred
in Florida. Following that, it
was off to Kentucky Christian
University, which is located in
Grayson. Faulkner applied to
KCU because of Jason Cullum-
the senior pastor at Christ's
Church-who was a KCU alum.
Faulkner was accepted at KCU,
and he and his family moved, but
with no jobs and no place to live.
However, Faulkner learned of a
job opening at the school from a
man who led him on a tour of the
campus. Faulkner applied and not
only- got the job, but discovered
the job provided an apartment to
live in, a meal plan and paid for
his and his wife's tuition.
Upon graduation, Faulkner
turned to Cullum again, asking-
him'if he knew of any churches
in Florida looking for pastors.


Cullum mentioned First Christian
Church, but Faulkner admitted
he didn't apply immediately.
He didn't know anything about
Starke or the church, and said the
church had a requirement that
its next pastor have seven to 10
years of experience, which he
lacked.
Again, things fell into place
for Faulkner and his family.
He did eventually apply for the
position at First Christian and
was brought in for an interview.
Faulkner said he felt comfortable
with the people of First Christian
from the very beginning, when
elder Herb Sellers picked him
and his family up at the airport.
"From that moment, I knew
they were family," Faulkner
said.
Thus, despite any initial
hesitation on his part in applying
for the position and despite the
church's requirement of having
a pastor with more experience,
Faulkner has now been on the job
for approximately two weeks.
"I don't think there's any
nervousness about this-on my
part or their part-on if this is
going to work," Faulkner said.
"We see God's work in this.
We're eager to work together."
Faulkner was just as eager
to move to Starke when he was


interviewed by the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor on June 18. (His
move was scheduled for June
21.)
"1 can't wait to be in town so we
, can start meeting neighbors and
people and getting more familiar
with everybody," Faulkner said.
Faulkner and his wife have
three children: John Daniel

It may have been a surprising
journey the family has made to
get to this point, but it w?-" ',r a
purpose. Faulkner wouldn't have
it any other way.
"Today, I'm thankful it's all
played out this way,"'he said.

rently plays for the Buffalo Bills.

make him or her more honest?
Of course not, but if collection
enters into the court system,


a signed receipt or contract
facilitates a settlement.
It hasn't always, been this
way. There was a time when
the system of extending credit
was much easier; in fact, there
was nothing in writing. The

Sarah Alvarez a check for a
debt on which there had been

the two men. The transaction
had been made between the
two men and sealed with a
handshake.
This method of doing
business is the true measure
of a man's character and
integrity. Smith exemplified a
