Disaster assistance available


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com editor


Emergency workers, spearheaded
by the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency, set up shop in the
Bradford Senior Center Sunday af-
ternoon to help victims of Tropical
Storm Debby recover from storm
damage. Spokesmen for two federal
agencies said one of the biggest ob-
stacles to victims receiving aid are the
victims themselves.
FEMA's Troy York, along with
Richard Daigle of the Small Busines's
Administration, said many victims
miss out on.federal grants, loans and
other benefits because they do not fill
out the paperwork in time.
The lto representatives said
they've heard the gamut of excuses
why victims don't apply for aid, then
later wish they had.
'Sometimes a victim will look over
at his neighbor's house and think, they
have a lot more damage than me," said
York, "and I don't want to take away
from their aid by applying myself."
"However, no one's benefits are re-
duced because too many people apply
to help," he said'.
Both workers said another hin-
drance in receiving help is victims
don't know how to take that first
step.
"The first thing people should do is
to call our 1-800 number," added York,
referring to FEMA's toll-free hotline
of 800- 621-FEMA (3362). Alterna-
tively, victims can register online at
www.DisasterAssistance.gov or reg-
ister in person at FEMA's disaster
recovery center located at the Brad-
ford Senior Center. The senior center


Bradford County resident Belinda Daniels registered with FEMA at
the Bradford Senior Center Tuesday.


is located at 1805 N. Temple Ave. in
Starke,just south of Beck Chevrolet.
Another reason people give for not
registering with FEMA is that they are
not sure if they qualify for help.
"Register," York and Daigle re-
spond. "Apply and let out system
work out what you are eligible for."
Some victims think receiving grants
will increase their federal tax liability
or affect their social security benefits.
"Not true," the federal workers
said. Call the 800 number and get the
facts .
Many victims think they are ad-
equately covered by private insurance
for all their losses and therefore don't
need government help.
"The problem with that thinking,"
said York, "is that it takes awhile for
these claims to get processed. You
may think now that you are adequate-


ly covered and find out months from
now that you are not. By then it may
be too late to register."
York said FEMA will shortly es-
tablish a deadline for all victims of
Tropical Storm Debby to register with
the agency. If they fail to register by
the deadline, they will be locked out
from help.
"FEMA has not announced that
date yet," warned York, but they will
soon."
"Here's another problem we have
seen .with people who think they are
covered by insurance," added Daigle.
"You file your claim with your insur-
ance company. You get your home
repaired. Three months later you
discover mold in your house that was
caused by the water. Two thousand
dollars turns into $90,000."

Shelter-animals flooded with support


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com editor

Managers at Bradford's animal
shelter said they were overwhelmed
by the support they received after
flooding caused by Tropical Storm
Debby forced them to relocate around
40 cats and dogs to the fairgrounds
June 25.
After five dogs were lost to flood-
ing, and the overflowing Alligator
Creek forced the evacuation of the
remaining animals, individuals and
animal rescue groups throughout the


following week dropped by the fair-
grounds and either rescued or adopted
nearly every other animal under the
care of the shelter.
Bradford sheriff's Lt. Dawn McKin-
ley said' that even after an additional
seven cats and eight dogs had been
. dropped off at the fairgrounds, the
shelter's inventory at one point dipped
to two cats and five dogs. McKinley
said the shelter also received supplies
and care boxes from as far away as
Tennessee, New Hampshire and Mi-
ami. Merial, the maker of Frontline
flea treatment sent supplies of their


product and Lake Area Animal Hos-
pital offered free medical services.
However, most of the support for
the animals came from local groups,
many from the Jacksonville and
Gainesville areas.
Tracy George, who runs a nonprofit
dedicated to helping animals at the
Bradford shelter, added that donors
did not simply drop items off.
"They interacted with the animals,"
she said. "They were true animal lov-
ers. You could see it."

candidates

smear

Stearns,

Washington
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Congressional candidates speaking
and the Hampton Veterans Memorial
political Rally June 30 all had a couple
of things in common, including their.
disdain for incumbent Cliff Stearns,
who failed to make an appearance as
scheduled.
Republican candidate James Jett
said he had been looking forward to
debating Stearns, but all debates have
been refused.
"Cliff Stearns does not care about
Bradford County," Jett said or other
counties he named where he said
he's seen Stearns' "acolytes," but
not Stearns himself. If he did care, he
- would show up and answer voters'
questions, Jett said.
Steve Oelrich, another Republican
candidate, accused Steams of looking
down his nose at the people of Brad--
ford County.
"I don't want to have a guy who
looks down his nose at you and me be- -
cause he's such an aristocrat," Oelrich
said, adding that Stearns makes it to
the events with the "country club set."
He doesn't bother with country folks,
however, said Oelrich.
Democrat J.R. Gaillot said he was
sad Stearns did not show up, but then
said everyone should be used to it by
now.
"Here is my message to Mr. Stearns:
You have three primary opponents.
Stop being a wuss. Debate them,"
Gaillot said. "You need the practice
Mr. Siearns, because I'm waiting for
you at the other end."
The candidates who did speak
all felt they were the man to replace
Stearns, who was drawn out of repre-
senting this area during redistricting
but decided to run in the newly cre-
ated District 3, which includes all of
Bradford, Union, Columbia, Hamil-
ton, Suwannee, Lafayette, Dixie, Levy
and Gilchrist counties and portions of
Clay, Marion, Alachua and Madison
counties.
Jett attacked Stearns' record, saying
Stearns is a conservative only when
it suits him. He said Stearns voted to
raise the debt limit 11 times and at-
tached millions of dollars worth "pork
barrel" projects to the budget, adding
to the national deficit.
"Cliff Stearns represents what is
wrong in America," Jett said.
Jett is clerk'of courts in Clay Coun-
ty and said he has a proven record of
integrity, saying he not only turned
down a bribe while in office but aid-
ed law enforcement in capturing and
convicting the criminal. Jett said he
wasn't for sale when that took place
or when Steams' "intermediaries" al-
legedly tried to pay him to drop out
of the race, an allegation that is still
under investigation.
"I stand up for what is right," Jett
said. According to him, that includes
defeating Obamacare, either by repeal
or refusing funding. He said it's not
good for America=, and "Stearnscare"
wouldn't be either. That was a plan
sponsored by Stearns in the 1990s that
would have "nationalized" health care
with mandatory participation and pen-
alties for noncompliance.
J also said he was for the Fair Tax
Sorafla tax.
"Amer a has to have a change. We
cannot continue to be a free country,
a Republic, if we go with more of the '
same," said Jett.
Giving credit to HMV rally organiz-
ers, Gaillot began by saying the coun-
try had failed its veterans and needed
to do a better job caring for them.
He continued by saying that Stearns
had done nothing with his 24 years in
office. Gaillot has never held political

School board candidates say how they would help


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

There's a school board seat
opening up in District 4 and no
fewer than five candidates vying
to fill it. Each spoke at the rally
held June 30.
Up first was Braxton Britt, who
said his prior run for the seat was
preparation for this time around.
The businessman and youth
coach said he loves being with
kids and the office would give
him a chance to bring a change.
H'e said he has a good relation-
ship with many teachers in the
system as well as many parents,
and he is a parent himself.
"I look forward to being able
to serve the kids in this commu-
nity and look out for what's i1
their best interest," Britt said.
Rod Carter. admitted .he was-
probably the unknown in the
race. He is a parent and youth
pastor who moved to the area
with his family five years ago.
"The thing about me that I want
to let you know is that I have
strong conservative Christian
values, strong family values, and
I think that's something that's
important to our school system
today," Carter said, adding that if
parents began by instilling these
values at.home, everything in the
school system would fall into
place.
"It's not the school board's
position to correct these things,
it's our position as. parents and
grandparents to raise our kids
in the proper way so when they
go into the school system, they
-know how to act," Carter said.
Carter -said he isn't making
any. campaign promises because
he's' not sure one person on a
five-member board can make a
difference, but he said. his val-
ues would determine every deci-
sion he makes. Outgoing School
Board Member Vivian Chappell
with-her outspokenness and con-.
cern for students would be his
model if he were elected to re-
place her, he said.
Ed Wall said when asked- by
voters why he wanted to run for
school board, he tells them it's
because of his love for children
and the potential they represeiit.


Braxton Britt,

Mitchell Gunter Elbert Hersey


He said he wants to help provide
the safe schools and the educa-
tions they need to fulfill that po-
tentital.,
"I watch th interactions of my
grandchildren with other kids,
listen to what they talk about,
how they play ... and you have
to remember that the children of
today are our doctors, architects,
plumbers, electricians and so on
when we we're older and they're


running the show," Wall said.
Wall also discussed experience
gleaned from being mayor and
city commissioner in the city of
Starke, including budgeting and
personnel, as well as his military
experience.
Mitchell Gunter discussed his
community involvement with
events like Relay for Life and
his work voluitebritng-with track

"I'm an everyday guy wh(

Gaillot said voters need to stop

and who go to Washington and
make laws that negatively impact
voters' lives. He spoke in partic-
ular of legislation that allows the
indefinite detention of American
citizens, eliminating due process.
He said he would fight that and
fight for a better tax system and
an economy based on American
manufacturing jobs. He said he
heais about the need for jobs ev-

Willey said it's time to put
people in government who will
say no to special interests.
"If we allow government to
keep going, what's it going to
pass next?" he asked, saying he
got into the race because he be-
lieves most people want to be left
alone to live their lives.
Willey also talked about the
high number of veteran suicides,
saying soldiers are killing them-
selves faster than the enemy can.
"It's time for us to end this
war. We got our man," he said,
criticizing the amount of military
spending. "Let's reclaim Con-

Willey said he wanted to
shrink government so it fits in-
side the Constitution, and that
includes cutting the amount of
money it has to spend by elimi-

said he's been on the receiving
end of regulations and legislation
like Obamacare while working to
achieve the American dream.
That dream is based on oppor-
tunity, Yoho said, and that op-
portunity is under attack. In order
for people to achieve the dream,
he said government needs to be
efficient, there needs to be strong
national security, and the econo-
my needs to be able to grow.
Yoho is in favor of repealing
the health care bill, cutting regu-
lations and government man-
dates, and simplifying the tax
code.
"I'm a supporter of the Fair
Tax, and I'll tell you it's not per-
fect, but it takes the control out
of the hands of the government,"
he said, adding the government
has used tax policy to divide the
nation.
He talked about a 30-year im-
migration crisis, the need for en-
ergy independence and the threat
posed by national debt.
"The only way we're going
to solve our debt problem is we
must have a growing economy.

has a war chest of $2.5 million.
Nevertheless, there are candi-
dates running to unseat him and
make a difference in Washing-
ton.
"This guy wants to sit up there
and continue business as usu-
al," Oelrich said. "Twenty-four
years, four bills. Twenty-four
years, he's raised the debt limit
11 times, and he wants to call
himself a conservative."
A formerAlachuaCounty sher-
iff(the first Republican elected to
that office since Reconstruction)
and current state senator, Oelrich
said he's proven someone can go
against the system and be elected
to office. Elected office is about
courage and service, two things
that are lacking in Washington,
he said.

"If you want to have business
as usual, no changes, vote for the -
guy you've got up there now," -
said Oelrich. "But if you want
change-and I think I'm the most
effective change agent- vote for
a change in Washington, D.C."
Oelrich said he wants to return -
to an America he recognizes that
does not pursue socialism, but at
the same time has a government
that looks after its people. He en-
visioned an energy independent
country with a different foreign
and domestic policy, but.he called
the idea that alternative energies :r,
could replace oil "insane." He
said if other countries want to use
oil as a bargaining chip in foreign .
policy, then the United States
should use the food it produces
as a bargaining chip.
"I'm the guy that's going to go
'ip there and kick the table over,".
said Oelrich. If that means his
political career is over after two
years because he won't play ball,
then so be it, he said.
Stearns was represented at the
rally by Jamie Miller, who spoke :
briefly on his behalf. He said
Steams has been a voice for fam-
ily and conservative values in
Washington, D.C. He mentione.
the congressman's involvement
in a recent tea party conference
as well as endorsements from.
well-known names like former
presidential candidate and Con-
gresswoman Michele Bachmann.':
and Congressman Paul Ryan as :;
well as national prolife and gun
rights organizations.
Miller mentioned Steams'
fight against Obamacare as well
as investigations launched to
look into government support for
the now bankrupt Solyndra com-
pany and the use of tax funds by
Planned Parenthood.
Miller said all of the Republi-
can candidates are going to make
claims about their conservatism.
'"The truth is you have some-
one who's been fighting for your
conservative values. If Barack:-
Obama is able to get re-elected,-.
you have someone who's been
on the front lines fighting Barack
Obama, and he will continue to
do so," he said.

The only way I know to do that
is we've got to cut spending and
we've go to grow our economy.
The way you do that is you get
Washington out of the way of

The problem, Yoho said, is
the wrong people have been in

would be different.

j; The three candidates for Brad-
fbrd County tax collector intro-
duced themselves to voters at-
1ending the June 30 political rally'
sponsored by Hampton Veterans
Icmorial Fund.
4 Teresa Phillips said she began
working, in the tax collector's of-
fice as a senior in high school in
(1979 and has worked under dif-
, ferent office holders, including
iTeila Pearson, who is retiring
*from office this year. Phillips
;holds. a state certification as tax
collector assistant and is a super-
,visor in the office at the Bradford
countyy Courthouse.

tsponsibility is making sure tax

no physical damage from the

"If your business property suf-
fered-no physical damage," said
Daigle, "but you lost business be-
cause your customers could not
get to you, then you can be reim-
bursed for economic losses."
Daigle added that even though

Business Administration, it of-

said she could do anything in the
office.
"When one person is missing,
'that office does not shut down.
We all take responsibility and do
whatever we have to do to keep
things going," she said, adding
she is proud of the service she
has been able to provide over the
years.
Linda Lee has also been certi-
fied as a tax collector assistant,
having worked in the office for
24 years. She helps manage day-
to-day operations and represents
Pearson when she is unavailable.
"It also means I have to be pro-
ficient in the functions of every
department and assist wherever
my help is needed," Lee said.
While she is sometimes referred
to as the woman in the back of-


businesses.
"Our name works against us,"
he said. "We operate a little dif-
ferently than FEMA .because
while FEMA'\,ives grants, we
offer low-interest loans. Typi-
cally, people come to us after
they have exhausted their op-
tions with FEMA. Sometimes if
we can't help, we will send them
back to FEMA and FEMA helps
them after all. You've got 'tot
register to get started."'
Some victims are afraid of
loans.
"You .don't have to take the
loan," said Daigle. "Apply with
us. 'If you change your mind
later, no problem. If you want
part of the loan and not all of it,
fine."
But if you don't apply, then
later change your mind, you are
locked out. Unlike FEMA, the
SBA has already established ap-
plication deadlines, Sept. 4 for
physical damage and April 3,
2013, for economic injury.
What if you have a; spotty
credit history? What if you can't
pay back the loan?
"We are the most lenient lender
out there," replied Daigle. "But
if we don't think you can pay
back the loan, we are not going
to do the loan. Apply." you've

Lee said if elected she would
be a working tax collector, con-
tinuing to perform the functions
she carries out as assistant. She
plans to save tax dollars by re-
assigning duties to eliminate
one position. She said the of-
fice would be more efficient and
expanding service hours would
also make it more convenient.
Full service will be available at
every window, so wait times will
be reduced.
Vicky Miller said she has
worked in the tax collectors' of-
fices in Bradford and Clay coun-
ties for more than 20 years. She
is also certified as a tax collector
assistant and currently serves as
the assistant branch manager in
Orange Park where she said she


got nothing to lose.
FEMA, the SBA and other
agencies offer assistance with
repairs, temporary housing, re-
location and other storm-related
costs. Thirteen federal agen-
cies administer 72 programs to.
help victims recover from disas-
ters. Some offer legal help, ca-
reer assisfarce and ,mental health
and substance abuse counseling,
many services people don't nor-
mally associate with disaster re-
covery.
However, the one thing the
agencies cannot do is to take the
first step.
"You have to take the first
step," said York. "Make the
call,"


you do everything," Miller said
describing her experience, and
she said she wants to make
sure every employ here is cross
trained so they can help anyone
who walks through the door.
She, too, said she would be a
working and visible tax collector
in charge of a courteous and pro-
fessional office.
"I don't want to lose sight
with the employees or with the
customers," Miller said. "If you
come in, I want' to be able to do
your tags."
The tax collector candidates
are in a universal primary, which
means the election will be de-
cided when all of the votes are
counted on Aug. 14.

Keep summer
cyber safe
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is asking for
the public's assistance in keep-
ing Florida's children safe from
online predators.
This month, children across
the state have begun their sum-
mer vacations, and now have am-
ple amounts of free time. Some
of this free time will likely be
spent on the computer. With this
in mind, FDLE is asking for par-
ents and guardians to open a dia-
logue with their children about
computer safety.
In 2011,,law enforcement in
Florida arrested over 1,200 indi-'
viduals who attempted to victim-
ize children through use of the
Internet.
Over the next three months,
FDLE \% ill be placing weekly lips
on our Facdbidk page at'www'.
facebook.com/FDLEpage. These
tips are designed to both educate
and provide tools that the public
can use to protect their children
and enhance their own computer


safety.
Online child victimization
is becoming more prevalent as
technology changes, so it is para-
mount that law enforcement and
the public work together to keep
our children safe.

ing computer safety, please visit

Across the Garden
Fence is a new column
sponsored by the Bradford
County Extension. Service.
Readers who wish to pose
gardening questions should
forward them to Mary Bridg-
man at jtd@ufl.edu.

\ / I've noticed some strange-
looking insects in my yard, about
a half-inch long each, with red and
back markings. What are they, and should I be
concerned about them?
,The insects you describe are probably Jaderas.
These insects aggregate to feed on seeds that have
dropped to the ground from trees overhead, espe-
cially from goldenrain trees.
i 'In most instances, no attempts to control Jadera
species are necessary. There is no documented evi-
dence that they are harmful to plants. Small con-
~entrations on ornamental plants can be destroyed
'9b hand collection. If they are a nuisance in lawns
iy playgrounds, raking to remove the seeds that the
,bugs are feeding on should help.
Remember, for assistance identifying any insect
.cr pest, you can take a sample in a plastic Ziploc
,ag or a clear plastic or glass jar to the extension
office at 2266 N. Temple Ave. in Starke. M


I've always been interested in gar-

we wanted to be better able to care for our lawns
and ornamental plants, having moved to this area
after we retired. Before retirement, we hired people
to take care of our yard, so we had lots to learn to
be able to keep up with-the demands of five acres,
a variety of fruit trees, and various ornamental and
landscape plants. write this column in partial ful-

Sampson structure stays, flooding persists Bringing authors to Bradford County


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The battle over what would
become of the Sampson Lake
control structure under C.R.
225 ended right before Tropical
Storm Debby flooded the area.
The Suwannee River Water
Management District had for
years been looking at the pos-
sibility of replacing the gated
structure under the highway with
a fixed structure downstream
that would still supposedly man-
age the flow from the lake while
-eliminating the issues over the
operation of the gates.
Each time the possibility was
discussed with residents, many
objected, worried that the lack
of direct control over the flow
wouldn't protect lake levels
when water was sparse or protect
residences on the flood prone
lake when storms came. Other
residents downstream wanted
more water in Sampson River
and would have been happy with
no control structure at all.
County commissioners found
themselves caught in the middle,
and water management district
representatives were often on the
receiving end of criticism from
all sides.
Last month, the district ap-


peared before the county com-
mission to say that any plans to
alter the control -structure were
being abandoned. The county
commission has been granted
the permit needed to operate the
gates and retains the responsibil-
ity for keeping those gates opera-
tional.
With that responsibility also
comes.complaints from residents
about how the gates are or are
not being operated. It seems as
soon as the county regained offi-
cial control of the gates, Tropical
Storm Debby arrived to put the
system to the test.
Even after much of the rain had
stopped, water continued to flow
to Sampson and Crosby lakes
and the lakes continued to rise,
flooding yards and houses-and
proving what the water manage-
ment district had been saying
about the control structure. Like
a funnel, only so much water can
make it through the gates. If wa-'
ter is flowing into the funnel fast-
er than it is flowing out, there's
.going to be a spill.
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District representatives
have said that even if all of the
gates are open 10 days prior to
a major storm event-the Abso-
lute soonest a storm is likely to
be predicted to hit the area-that


still probably won't be enough to
prevent flooding on the lake.
County Emergency Manage-
ment Director Brian Johns, dis-
cussing federal disaster assis-
tance with the city of Starke July
10, addressed misconceptions.
"Some people said, 'If you had,
opened those gates 18, hours, 24
hours, prior to that, my house
wouldn't have flooded.' That's
not even close to the truth," he
said. The gates have been fully
opened for two weeks. Water
levels in Sampson have dropped
a little, and Crosby has hardly
dropped at all, Johns said.
"When you've got water run-
" ning in at 25 places ... it just can't
run out fast enough. I've always
told people, I don't care if you
don't have any gates there, with
an event like you had last time,
you will still flood," Johns said.
The, water management dis-
trict hasn't walked away from
that area entirely. It 'will be con-
ducing a flooding study using
federal funds to include Alliga-
tor Creek, Sampson, Rowell and
Crosby lakes and Sampson Riv-
er., The goal is to answer question
pertaining to the ongoing opera-
tion of the control structure, and
it will establish base flood eleva-
tions on those water bodies.


Hampton, Lawtey may lose out on grants


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com editor

Construction delays caused
by Tropical Storm Debby have
placed next year's federal Com-
munity Development Block
Grants for Hampton and Lawtey
in jeopardy.
Hampton Clerk Jane Hall said
in order for the town to apply for
a CDBG next year, all work on
its current water project must be
complete by Aug. 14.
She added that rains 'from the
storm caused a wepk's delay in
-Hampton's current project to up-
grade its water plant and main


lines. The work was held up an
additional five days because the
project's. contractor is based in
Live Oak, where severe flood-
ing occurred. She' concluded
that now it appears workers will
not complete thejob on time and
Hampton will be out of the run-
ning for 2012 CDBG money.
If Hampton and Lawtey meet,
the deadline, they can compete
for CDBG funding along with
other Florida small cities.
Lawtey CI Lisa Harley said
that city officials and its con-
tractor Grimes Construction of
Orange Park believe work on
the town's current sewer proj-


fairgrounds into a livable envi-
LTER Ironment for the cats and dogs.

* George also said -.that while
there will always be a need for
a shelter in Bradford County, the
real solution to reducing'the pop-
ulation of strays and. abandoned
animals is public education.
"We can't rescue our way out
of this," George said, referring to
her own efforts of finding homes
for the abandoned pets that wind
up at the shelter, "and we just
can't kill them all. We've got
to educate people about what re-
sponsible pet ownership means,
we've got to get these pets spayed.
and neutered and we've got give
people a way to handle the strays
they come across."

8A BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012


Back-to-School

Fair announced


?BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The Bradford County Back-
to-School Info Fair is continuing
to evolve in its fifth year. Let-
ters have been sent to participat-
itg organizations and sponsors
revealing the date of this year's
event as Aug. 3.
The primary difference here is
that the fair has been moved from
a Saturday afternoon to a Friday
evening in recognition that past
crowds have had to battle the heat
vhile waiting in line and making
their way through the fair.
-According to coordinator
Cheryl Canova, they have a
plan for cutting down wait time
*s well. Families from different
schools will be asked to show up
$t staggeredtimes.
Fbr those'unfamiliar with the
back-to-school fair, it is an op-
portunity for families to obtain
bags of free school supplies, but
he real intent has always been to


share information about various
community resources that can
assist families throughout the
year. These organizations along
with schools, churches and civic
groups work together to provide
supplies and information.
When families arrive at the
Bradford County Fairgrounds,
where the back-to-school fair
is taking place again this year;
their students will receive supply
bags specifically packed for el-
ementary, middle or high school
students. They will also receive
signature cards to be signed at a
dozen information booths. Fami-
lies will not only receive impor-
tant information while getting
these cards signed, they will also
be entered into the drawings tak-
ing place every 30 minutes for a
Walmart gift card.
There will also be free food,.
and entertainment to enjoy.
The event was founded to cater ,
to the mental, physical and spiri-
tual needs of the community.


"With a successful Back-to-
School Info Fair, we hope to bet-
ter equip families to have a suc-
cessful start to the fall semester
of school and daily living," said
Canova, who is reaching out to
the community for assistance,
planning the event along with co-
chair Byron Ramsuer, and board


members Colleen Scott and Bar-
ry Warren.
Financial support is needed to
hold the fair. Organizations who
set up booths at the fair are asked
for a $100 voluntary donation,
although not having the budget
for this donation does not keep
groups from participating. They


can still set up booths to hand out
information, and supplies.
Instead, organizers also look
for outside support, including
what they call the Committee
of 100. These are 100 individu-
als who contribute $50 each to
support the event. Donations can
be mailed to Santa Fe College,

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY, UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION"



Stern family's roots now run deep on Bradford farm


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor


If the move from Rockford,
Ill., to Starke was prompted by
the desire to find a better place to
raise a family, one would have to
say the Stern family found what
it was looking for as members
of the family have occupied the
same piece of land for the last
100 years.
Three generations of family
members currently live on
property off of S.R. 16 East
that' was originally purchased
by Augustus Stern in 1912.
Roland-the grandson of
Augustus-and his wife,
Lucinda, raised their daughters.
there and live in the house
Roland's father, Harry, built.
Ronda Curtis, one of Roland and
Lucinda's daughters, lives on
the land. She and her husband,
Curtis, have lived there for more
than 30 years.
The fifth generation of the
family is establishing itself
on the land. .Ronda and Curtis
Crawford's daughter Amber
Reichert and her husband,
Hunter, currently have a home
there, while the Crawfords' other
daughter, Ashley, and her fiance,
Derek Browning, are building a
home there. ,
-Also, Austin Crawford is
getting ready to build a home
there as well.
For his part, lRoland said
the fact the family has lived
continuously on the 60-plus
acres for 100 years is nothing
"earth shaking," but his quiet,
reserved manner does not hide
the fact it is something he's
proud of.
Lucinda, who was a north
Georgia lady before meeting and
-marrying Roland, has taken to
the land and seems truly honored
to be a part of the bond between
it and the Stern family.
"We love the land," Lucinda
said. "That sounds corny, I
know, but we do. One thing
we continue to be amazed at is
that we are blessed that God has
given us this piece of land to be
stewards of. We try to do the
best we can with it."
Though Roland once made
Lucinda promise years ago that if
anything ever happened to him,
she would take their daughters
and m6ve back to Georgia to be
close to her family, Lucinda has
since recanted.
"This is definitely home," she
said.
It took many miles for the
Stern family to find home-
from Germany to New York,

Blindness not an


obstacle for 5-year-old


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
On stage, 5-year-old Kameron
McKinney Lyons seemed no
different from the rest of the
Starke Academy of Dance pre-
dance tap students, but it became
evident to the crowd at the recital
that she wasn't quite like the
other children.
"No one kn w she was blind
until she came off the stage,
and they brought her to us with
.her cane," said Phyllis Warren,
.Lyons'aunt who is affectionately
known as "Nana."
Emma Theus, the 12-year-old
daughter of Starke Academy
of Dance owner Laura Theus,
worked one-on-one with Lyons
in class and was on stage with
I~r at the recital to assist as
kell. She said other than her the
absence of sight, Lyons was no

she doesn't even get to see any of
her other classmates in her dance
class, but she's really good at
listening," Theus said, adding,
"She can always do the steps like
every other classmate. It just lets
her blend in really well because
she can do all the moves."
Being blind may be the only
way in which Lyons differs from
other 5-year-olds. Like a lot of
young children, she can show a
fierce determination in wanting
something.
I "She's got this go-get-it
'^ attitude, and it's like nothing's
going to stop her," Warren
said.. "We kind of look at it as
a reversal of the doctors saying
she'd never be able to.. Her
attitude is, 'You.can't stop me.
I'm going after it.'"
Lyons, the daughter of
forms Maryann Lyons and Brenda
from McKinney, plans to continue
taking dance lessons.' and also
wants to learn to play the piano.
"She's amazing," Warren said.
S "She astonishes all of us."
The child who is living life
to its fullest at such a young age
entered the world early, born
premature at 24 Weeks. She was
diagnosed with bilateral retinal
detachment due to retinopathy
of prematurity, which describes
abnormal blood vessel
development in the retinas.
"At one time, we thought
maybe there was some light that
she could see," Warren said,
"but they determined she can't
see anything."
Lyons' premature birth created
other complications as well. She
had to have open-heart surgery
E and at one point went three days
without eating at 18 months of
age.

Doctors didn't give Lyons
much of a chance of surviving,
but family members didn'tgive
up.
"We prayed," Warren said.
"Here she is today. She's just as
perfect as me and you-other
than she can't see--and smart as
a whip."
Laura Theus said she received
an email from Brenda McKinney

* Augustus Stern (seated, second from right) moved his family from Illinois to
Bradford County in.1912. He is seated between children Fred and Elsie, while his
:wife, Bertha, is seated at the far left. Standing in the back (I-r) are sons Bill, Harry
Sand Frank.

Continued from 1B

That's what Daddy did."
Roland's father, Harry, was 19
or20 when the family packed up
and moved to Bradford County.
"I asked Daddy one time,
'Why'd you all move down
;here?' Daddy said that wasn't
:any place for a family to live,"
Roland said.
.;.There were relatives already


living in the area, plus a lot of
Germans lived in Lawtey in the
early 1900s, Lucinda said.
"A lot of the Germans moved
down here during World War
I because of persecution -up
(north)-well, everywhere,"
Lucinda said. "Evidently, down
here it wasn't as pronounced as
it was up there."
The family cut timber on
the land the descendants live
on today and built a two-story
'house, which is behind the
house' Roland and Lucinda live


in today. A sawmill operation
was established on site as well.
Lucinda said Roland's father cut
timber used in building many
homes in Starke and the Kingsley
Lake area. In fact, Harry Stern
cut the timber used for the old
Strickland Landing on Kingsley
Lake, she said.
Timber was not the family's
own business. Strawberries
were grown and shipped via
rail out of Lawtey. Roland said
strawberry buyers would gather
on Sunday, dressed in coats and


ties and drinking beer.
"That was acceptable to do
that," Roland said.
"Nookie Wainwright used
to tell us that was always a big
deal out here on the Stern farm,"
Lucinda said. "Evidently, a lot
of strawberry buyers were of
German descent, for whatever
reason."
Another big deal on the Stern
farm was the grist mill. Roland
said he remembers people
visiting the farm up through his
days in high school, waiting to
get their corn made into grits or
meal.
"There would be people lined
up here," Roland said. '"They'd
be lined up all the way back out
to the road, waiting on getting
just a little bit of maybe half a
bushel or bushel. You didn't
want to grind too much ahead of
time. They'd come back two or
three times a year to do that."
The family also grew sugar
cane-making its own syrup-
as well as another crop when
the area wasn't experiencing
drought conditions.
"It's hard to' believe now,
but they even raised rice here,"
Roland said.
The farm has always been
home for Roland, but he did
live elsewhere for a time.
Circumstances dictated that,
but he always knew he would
return.

Making a living,
starting a family
Roland went to forestry school
in Lake City after graduating
from high school, with his father
cutting and selling timber to
raise the money to cover the
school costs.
"He hitch-hiked back and
forth to Lake City," Lucinda
said. "He'd stay there through
the week. Every weekend, he
would hitch-hike back home."
From there, Roland went to
Georgia, which was strictly a
work-related decision. He said
there were no jobs to be had near
home.
"I had to make a living,"
Roland said.
Lucinda quickly added, "He
was seeking a wife."


Roland Stern's parents, Harry and Leona Stern.


That was not the reason, of
course, but Roland did end up
with a wife. He was working for
Georgia Craft, and Lucinda's
brother worked for him.
Lucinda's brother was building
a house, and Roland helped in

Rainy-day
help shows
that chivalry
is not dead
Dear Editor:
'Up5n leaving work in Gaines-
ville in the late afternoon of
*Monday, June 25, during a hor-
rific downpour caused by Tropi-
cal Storm Debby, I noticed with
great surprise that one of my tires
was just about flat. I went to the
nearest store with an air machine,
but couldn't even use it as that
area had about a foot of rainwater
collecting there.
I went inside th next store to
get change for their machine. I
told the clerk I hoped their ma-
'chine worked as my tire was just
about flat A young man in his
erly 20s who was behind me in
line said, "You're going to pump
air in the rain? Where are you?
I can help." I told him thanks.'
and that I had an umbrella to
hold over him. He went outside
to tell his driving partner at the
gas pumps that he was going to
help mne.
As' I stood there with the um-
brella while he put air in the tire,
I mentioned that I had to drive
to Keystone Heights. He said he
was from Keystone also, told me
where he lived and asked in what
part of Keystone I lived.
I apologized because he was
still getting a little wet, even
with me shielding him with the
umbrella. Good-naturedly, he re-
plied that he didn't mind; that he
loves the rain, and that he'd run
in rain like we were experienc-
ing at the time. (He did look like
he played football, as a inatter of
Factt)
: He told me to check for a slow
leak in my tire by putting soap
on it. Wherever the leak was,
the soap would bubble. I told
him thanks so much; he told me
.you're welcome and wished me
a great evening. I wished him the
* same.
This sweet, young man just
made my day, and I wish I had
asked his name. I am hoping 'he
will see this letter in your'news-
paper and realize how much his
.help was appreciated.

silver linings, and this was in-

Helping is
refreshing

Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Bradford
County Girls' Club, I would
like to extend a sincere hand
of appreciation to The Starke
Women's Club. The wonderful
Members of The Starke Women's.
Club have generously provided
refreshments for each weekly
after-school meeting. Words
cannot convey the difference
it made in both the meetings at
the high school and the middle
school.
We are funded for this program
through Florida Works, and as
with most grants, food is not an
allowable expense. Having a
snack and drink at each meeting
has been such a blessing. The
girls would come to the meetings
anxious to see what delectable
treat awaited them. It made
for a more receptive and fun
atmosphere. Bradford County is
very fortunate to have a "caring"
organization whose Members
will take the time to make a
difference in the community.
Thank you all very much.

Take a stand
for Ten Com-
mandments

Dear Editor:
Here in Bradford County and
all across the nation, the people
who believe in God and realize
that this nation was instituted
by and in accordance with that
belief have been duped. The
first and second paragraphs in
the Declaration of Independence
solidify the fact that we
established a relationship with
God right from the beginning.
Over time, however, we have
had many of our rights stripped
from us. We have been directed
by 'government to restrict our
rights of: prayer and displays
of religious beliefs to where
government permits.
The citizens of the United
States have stood by in silence as
our government has become more
and more secular. The proponents
of making our government more
secular- have simply misused
the First Amendment to the
Constitution by claiming that it
calls for a separation of church
and state, a phrase found nowhere
in the Constitution. In fact,
however, the First Amendment
does no such thing. The First
Amendment protects thfe people
from government. The First
Amendment doesn't prohibit
the people from anything. It's
only purpose is to prohibit
government from interfering with
the unalienable rights granted tdo
the people by the creator.
Most people don't: actually
read the First Amendment, they
just believe the people who take
it out of context and use it to take
away our rights. Read it here
and decide for yourself who is
prohibited and who is protected.
The first Amendment is the
first presentation in the Bill of
Rights and reads as follows:
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof: or abridging

the freedom of speech, or of the
press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to
petition the government for a
redress of grievances".
The people who have taken so
many of our religious rights from
us have used only the first part
of the sentence and put a period
where there is only a comma.
We believers have simply
accepted and/or cowardly put
up with this travesty of justice
and blame government instead
of standing tall and petitioning
the government for a redress of a
major grievance.
Right now our county is
faced with a lawsuit for having
the audacity to claim.our rights
and placing a privately funded
monument displaying the Ten
Commandments at our county
courthouse. Since the Ten
Commandments are cut in stone
in the Supreme Court building
in Washington D.C., one would
wonder why the same rules do
not apply at the county level.
In this primarily Christian
community, there is a movement
to back down and remove this
monument. If we do so we will
have become the cowardly lion.

Home sweet
home
Dear Editor:
My name is Rupert Geiger.
I was born to Sumpter Earl
"Buster" and Mable Geiger on
Geiger Road in Starke in 1958.
Our family had a 40-acre farm.
In 1965 my dad sold two 10-
acre lots and told the two men
that they could make payments.
He died three days later. It was
soon after his passing that we
lost our 20 acres and our home
to the bank. I thought our house
was paid for. My brother went
to live with a cousin. My three
sisters and I moved to Lakeland
to the Florida Baptist Children's
Home where we lived until we
each turned 18, then we went out
on our own.
I still think of Starke as my
hometown. I subscribe to the
paper, and try to vacation in
Starke at least once a year with
my sisters and my one brother.
When we are there, whether it's
'the Best Western, the little ice
cream shop (which we have to
go to every night), Cedar River
or any of the hamburger joints,
everyone is always friendly and
makes you feel like family.
Mom died in 2010. We buried
her on Kingsley Lake with my
Dad. I have less than 10 years to
work. The good Lord willing, if
He lets me live that long, I would
love to retire in Starke.

Dear Editor:
During vacation Bible school
and the flooding, an electric
pole fell (but was held up by the
wires). It was across the street
from the First Baptist Church
of Starke. When the crew came
out and realized the wires went
to our church and vacation Bible
school was going on, they parked
a truck to hold up the pole. until
VBS was over that day, so we
could have electricity. Thank you
so much.

THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012 TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR B SECTION 5B


Five generations of the Stern family have lived on a farm in Bradford County since 1912. Roland Stern-the
grandson of Augustus and Bertha Stern and son of Harry and Leona Stern-and his wife, Lucinda, lived there
along with children and grandchildren. Pictured are: (front, l-r) grandson Austin Crawford, Katlyn Crews
(Austin's girlfriend), grandsons Charlie Knox and Kevin Knox, Lucinda and Roland Stern, grandson Marcus
Knox, daughters Robin Knox and Ronda Crawford, granddaughters Amber Reichert and Ashley Crawford, (back,

rXarried."
cRoland said he told Lucinda
before they got married they
would be moving to Florida.
He wasn't sure when, but it was
g9ing to happen.
"That was always a priority,"
Lucinda said. "I knew going into
the marriage that I would have to
leave home. He just didn't know
(rty) family would be visiting so
n;iuch."
Lucinda and Roland both
laughed at that, with Roland
saying, "It's bad whenever all
your in-laws like you."
The year Roland and Lucinda
moved to Bradford County was
1969. Roland bought 30 acres of
the family land from his father,
and he and Lucinda lived in a
trailer with their daughters.
Unfortunately, two weeks
after they moved from Georgia,
Roland's father died. Lucinda,
though, did have the chance
to form a special bond with
Roland's mother, Leona. It
helped her make the transition
of living in a new place. Lucinda
recalled how it, rained for 1*7
straight days- .when ,she and;
Roland moved, and how their
septic tank flooded.
Her first impression of her
new home was not favorable.
"I didn't like it at all,"
Lucinda admitted. "In fact, I
kind of became a hermit. We
kept (Roland's) mother after his
daddy died. We kept her a lot.
I liked that. I liked being able
to just stay .in our little trailer


^,.- ** ^'^^'-*"
with our two little girls and his
mama."
In time, though, Lucinda
would like her new home just
fine, prompting her to tell
Roland that she would not honor
that promise she made to move
back to Georgia if something

happened to him.
"I have too much sand and
mud between my toes now to
ever go back to that red clay in
north Georgia," Lucinda said.
The only. move Lucinda
\made was into the house built
by Roland's father, a house that

has been an ongoing work in
progress.
Harry Stern began building
the house before he and Leona
married in 1933. The couple
lived in a shanty house on the
property while the house was
completed to the point where it
was livable.
Roland and Lucinda bought
the house in 1971. It's a house
with no closets and no hallways.
"It was just three bedrooms
off the three roomd-living
room, dining room and kitchen,"
Lucinda said.
The house was built with no
bathrooms, though one was
added to the back porch in the
'40s.
"We raised our girls with
one bathroom," Lucinda said.
"Of course, after they got gone,
we built on another one. They
always tease us about that. I tell
them it taught them sharing."'
Renovations have been made,
but the house still has its original
tin, its original boards and its
original fireplace.
"Of course, we cheat,"
Lucinda said. "We've got a little
heating system, too. In fact,
the first thing we put in was
a furnace. and air-conditioner
because (Roland) said he always
froze to death in the winter and
heated to death in the summer."
Whatever the renovation or
addition to the home-or any
significant expense for that
matter-it was never undertaken
until enough money was spent to
cover the cost.
Just as it had in the past, the
land the family lives on played a
pivotal role.

A family becomes one
with the land
As mentioned earlier, Harry
Stern cut timber to make money
for Roland to go to forestry
school. Harry Stern also relied
on the harvests of his pecan trees
to raise the money to pay taxes.
In that same vein, Roland
has used the timber to help
cover certain expenses, with the
harvested trees always being
replanted.
"That's always been like our
little bank account," Lucinda
said.
It develops an appreciation
of the land and a special
relationship with the land, which
Lucinda and Roland have tried

to pass on to their children and
grandchildren.
They have also shared the land
with those who are interested in
living on it.
"I think you've got to be
willing to share the land,"
Lucinda said. "(Roland's) daddy
was very gracious with us in
sharing the land. Roland has
been very gracious with the
children and grandchildren.
"Now, they'll do with it as
they please, and we've told them
that. No strings attached."
Roland said, "I'd like for
them to be able to stay here-
those that want to. It's not a


requirement.'
With grandchildren already
living on the land, though, it
appears as if the land and the
family will be tied together quite
a while longer.
Augustus and Berthad Stern
were seeking a suitable home for
their family, and they apparently
found it. Descendants from their
other children still live in the
area.
As for "Stern Farm," Roland
and Lucinda wouldn't want to
live anywhere else.
"We'd like to be able tb stay
here all the days of our lives,"
Lucinda said.

LYONS
Continued from 2B

willing to allow Lyons to give it
a try. However, the pre-dance tap
class is a large class, and teacher
Emily Giles knew she couldn't
devote extra time to Lyons at the
expense of the other students.
That's when Laura Theus turned
to her daughter, who was eager
to help.
Emma Theus said she.thought
working with Lyons would be
helpful if she goes on to become
a dance instructor as an adult.
"I thought it would be really
fun and interesting," Emma
Theus said. "It's not only good
for Kameron, it's good as an
experience for me to learn how
to teach disabled kids."
Theus said it did not take
tong for her and Lyons to form
a bond.
"We clcked immediately,"
Theus said. "There was just
something about Kameron. She
put so much trust in you. Even
though she can't see you, it's:
like she trusts you more than any
person:"
Unlike other dance students,
Lyons couldn't be shown a
visual and then perform what
she had seen. Emma Thetis said
she wbuld move Lyons' feet in
the way they were supposed to
move. The rest was up to) L) ons'
memory.
"It takes her a little bit longer,
but she gets it," Emma Theus said
when comparing how fast Lyons
learned compared to the other
students. "It sticks with her."
Warren said once Lyons learns
how to do something, she doesn't
forget. That, prompted Warren,
during the interview with the
Telegraph-Times-Monitor, to ask
Lyons, "You're not part'elephant
are you, baby?" "
Lyons shook her head with an
"uh-uh."
She remained pretty quiet
during the interview, but Lyons
was anything but quiet when it
came time to performing during
the dance recital. According to
Emma Theus, Lyons seemed to
be having the time of her life.
"She was laughing -ind
screaming on stage," Theus said.
If anybody had stage fright,
it was Theus, who accompanied
Lyons on stage to assist her/and
hold her hand. Theus said she
didn't know what to expect of
Lyons, who would be dancing
outside the familiar environment
of the Starke Academy of Dance
studio.
"I think she knew what to
expect a little bit when she was
backstage," Theus said, "but it
was kind of nerve-racking for me
because I was like, 'Oh, I hope
,she does all her moves.'"
While so many in the audience
were unaware they were watching
a blind child dance, those in the
know were truly touched by the
experience.
"I was crying on the side of the
stage," Laura Theus said. "I was
just so proud that she did it."
Now, Lyons plans to take a
jazz dancing class this summer.
When asked why she wanted to
learn jazz dancing, Lyons replied
it was because she wanted to "do -
funky moves."
Jazz dancing will present a
bigger challenge thantap because
in tap a dancer can at least hear
the beat and feel the vibrations
because of the shoes," Laura
Theus said.
Emma Theus said it will be
hard, but it won't deter her from
continuing to work with Lyons.
"We'll have a lot of fun this
summer," Emma Theus said.
Lyons plans to do more than
put her feet to work dancing-
she wants to see what her fingers
can do on a piano. Warren said it
was during vacation Bible school
at Sampson City Church of God
when Alex Coleman, who is also
blind, sat Lyons at a piano to see


what'she would do. She placed
her fingers on the keys as if she
knew exactly what she was doing,
which prompted Coleman to say
Lyons has the ability to play.
- Warren has a piano at home for
her niece to practice on.
"I told her, 'You learn piano,
you can have Nana's piano.'
She's real excited about that,"
Warren said.
It remains to be seen how
accomplished Lyons can become


in either playing the piano or
dancing. The one certainty is if
Lyons makes up her mind to do
something, she's going to do it.
Her blindness is not a permanent
obstacle, but one to be cleared
in her desire to not only play
piano or dance, But to participate
in other activities, such as
swimming, riding her bicycle
and riding horses.
To see Lyons' approach to life
has certainly had an impact on
family members and how they,
in turn, look at life.
"She's our inspiration,"
Warren said.
