Counties draw cool million,

give raise to landfill directors


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
County commissioners from Brad-
ford, Baker and Union counties are
very happy with the performance of
the director and assistant director at the
New River Regional Landfill, so much
so that the pair was given a spontane-
ous raise during a recent meeting.
This was not a regular meeting but
rather a specially called meeting Feb.
5 during which a total of $900,000 was
transferred to the members who make
up the association-$300,000 for each
county. This is over and above the an-
nual dividends each county already
earns from landfill operations.
Executive Director Darrell O'Neal
said he recently discussed county bud-
get difficulties with one'of the commis-
sioners from tri-county board and the
resulting depletion of county reserves.
Pointing to the solid waste associa-
tion's recent audit and its profitable
performance, O'Neal talked about a
transfer of revenue to help the counties
out.
He said the association has been
blessed for the last 14 years to be able
to purchase equipment, perform con-
struction, take care of environmental
and engineering requirements, and per-
form special projects, and do it all with
cash raised by operations.
"To make a withdrawal now is
probably the best timq you can .do it,"
O'Neal said, discussing future, obliga-
tions-including major infrastructure
projects-that will cost close to $20
million and begin in approximately


seven years.
Only five years remain before the
expiration of the Alachua County con.
tract, which brings in the. majority of
the landfill's' revenue. The most dif-
ficult part of planniing is not knowing
what Alachua is going to do, O'Neal
said.
"If they decide to do something else,
then our disposal- rates are going to
have to go up," .he said.
But Union County Commissioner
Wayne Smith said the revenue trans-
fer being requested would have no
immediate impact on the landfill, and
that was cleared with the association's
attorney. While the negotiations with
Alachua County-such as they are--
drag on, New River is collecting an ad-
ditional $2.35 pe.r ton., and that money
is going into escrow for future closure
costs. If the contract were renegotiated,
the landfill would be able to maintain
its disposal rates longer, but that sur-
charge would go away.
"With the audit presented, the way I
took it, now is the best time to ask for
the $300,000," Smith said, moving for
the association to transfer that amount
to each of its members. The second
came from Bradford County's Doyle
Thomas, who said that in a little more
than two years, the Alachua County
surcharge would replace the money.
"All three counties, like Mr. Smith
said, we could use that money, and
all three counties are in this together,"
Thomas said.

/ I've noticed that trees and
U shrubs that are normally subject
to frost damage seem to do better
when they are planted near lakes or ponds.
Why is that?
Tammy Wadsworth,
Waldo
I've observed the same phenomenon myself,
particularly with our citrus trees at Kingsley
Lake. We have good tree cover out there, so that
may also be a factor. But you are correct, and
the explanation is that the waters mod- i
.erate the temperatures over the land y1^
around the 1 ake' s edge. ':- J
In the winter, when it freezes, lake *RS
waters are wanner than die ambient air. ^*
As air moves over the lake it warms up JH|
. and carries the warmth with it for some ^^J
distance. The warmer air can protect tif _
fruit trees and sensitive plants from lie- u" j^
ing killed by freezing temperatures.
In spring, lake waters stay cooler longer than
the air and land. Air passing -over the lake is
cooled so that when it moves over land it can
slow the development of fruit blossoms, pro-
tecting them from late frosts. The cycle repeats
itself in the late fall and winter when freezing
temperatures return.
This doesn't mean cold-sensitive plants


grown near lakes
will never suffer
frost damage. I
have lost a num-
ber of citrus trees
to cold at Hampton
Lake. Generally.
these were younger
trees that did not
have any type of
shelter from larger
trees or nearby
buildings.

Community
invited to Day
of Prayer
Women, men and children in
more than 170 countries and re-
gions will celebrate World Day
of Prayer, Friday, March 1.
.The women of France, this
year's writer-country, have cho-
. sen the theme "I was a stranger
and you welcomed me." .The
French World Day of Prayer
Committee looks for a Christian
response to struggles concerning
immigration and for ways to wel-
come "the stranger."
The women who prepared
this year's worship service and
Bible studies reach intb'JeB'us''
identification with "the. least: of


these" in Matthew 25 and draw
on customs of hospitality found
in Leviticus to paint a picture of
welcoming the stranger.
Through visual interpretation
and personal stories, participants
begin to put themselves in the
shoes of "the stranger," remem-
bering their own feelings of be-
ing on the outside-and the bless-
ings of welcoming.
This year's service will be
held on March 1 at 11 a.m. at
First United Methodist Church
*in Starke. A covered-dish lunch
will follow the service. Nursery
services will be provided.
Invite your friends, family
and communities of faith to join
the women of France in prayer
and.spng, to, support, ecu^enica^.
efforts, toward welcoming the
stranger. The annual offering


supports the work of World Day
of Prayer USA and helps meet
the needs of families in France
and around the world who are
victims of many fonns of pover-
ty, violence, discrimination and
other injustice.
World Day of Prayer is a
worldwide ecumenical move-
ment of Christian women of
many traditions who come to-
gether to observe a common day
of prayer each year on the fast
Friday hi March. World Day of
Prayer was founded on (lie idea
that prayer and action are in-
separable in the service of
God's kingdom.
Services begin at sunrise in

mai~th and science, he says agri-
culture is his favorite course to
teach. because the students get to
apply the concepts they learn in
class.
"Agriculture gives kids oppor-
tunities to learn something that
may interest them with technical
skills or animals or plants that
they wouldn't have had an op-.
pourtunity to do otherwise," he
said.
Shaw says FTPA enables stu-
dents to have success. Hle enjoys
iadkiiig with students and build-
ing, relationships with them over
the four or five years they may
have contact in agriculture class,
and then chieering them on as
they succeed in life.
And success was on the lesson
plan in Agriculture Foundations
class last Wednesday, when
Shaw talked with students about
emiployability skills and asked
each one to list five things that
would make him or her desirable
to a potential employer.
Bobbie Acevedo also teaches
agriculture at the high school
level. "Mrs. Acevedo helps us
with hortictilture and plants and


also teaches us responsibility."
says student Mallory Perkinson.
"She's just really huelpful."
Dust in has similar things to
say about Shaw. "He's very help)-
ful. in learning new things and is
a real go-getter."lDustin recently
achieved special recognition in
an agricultural. mechan ics written
test and will have the 'H-a' 1i It nity'
to compete at the statQ level.
When asked about the impor-
tance of agriculture, the students
agreed it keeps our country run
ruing and "produces a lot of stuff
we need." Mallory saidI she was
surprised to learn how much we
get from animals, pointing out
that many ingredients in cosmet-
ics come from animal fat. And
that observation prompts~another
interesting fact. about the com-po.-
sition of' present-dlay agriculture
classes-half of the students are
girls.
This year, students had a new
opportunity to explore aqua-
culture, harvesting their first
farnn-raised tiilaoia from tanks
constructed at Brad ford -tUnion

required that they study wa

Constant exposure to tobacco
juices from these smokeless
products can cause oral cancers,
which can form within just five
years of regular use and can
cause cancer of the esophagus,
pharynx, larynx, stomach and
pancr-e-as. Smokeless tobacco
use can increase the risk of oral
cancers by 80 percent and the
risk of pancreatic and esophageal
cancer by 6(0 percent, according
to a 2008 study from the World

Cancer.
Aside from the increased risk
of cancer, using smokeless to..

heart attack and stroke. It can
lead to other oral problems such

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY, UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION



Brooker grandmother passing on passion of karate


BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN
Special to the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor

*After raising four children
and putting in 30 years as a state
employeee, Brooker resident Pat
Caren decided to teach karate.
She does it every Tuesday and
Friday in Stump Hall at First
Presbyterian "Church of Starke,
from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and
no one is turned away-it's free,
and it's open to all ages.
Caren's interest in karate
was initially fueled by her
children. When her eldest son
was sucker-punched following
a local football game, she
enrolled him in the karate school,
which at that time held classes
at the old armory building on
Temple Avenue, across from the
Bradford High School. Later,
when her second son and eldest
daughter encountered similar
incidents, Karate came to the
rescue. Because her kids weren't
old enough to drive, Caren drove
them to the armory and sat
through the classes three nights
each week.
"I decided if I was going to
be there three nights a week,
I' wasn't just, going to sit and


watch," says Caren. So she
enrolled and hasn't stopped,
ascending to the second degree
of black belt.
Caren says she appreciates the
individual nature of the sport,
because she's not into team
sports.
"You compete against
yourself," she said. "You
don't have to prove yourself to
others. There's lots of personal
satisfaction in it.",
Caren says she also finds
it beneficial in managing her
fibromyalgia because it requires
lots of large muscle movement,
which is good for the body.
Karate is a martial art
developed in the Ryukyu
Islands in what is now Okinawa,
Japan. It is a striking art using
punching, kicking, knee strikes,
elbow strikes and open-hand
techniques. It became popular
in the U.S. following World War
II when members of the military
learned it in Okinawa or Japan,
and then opened schools in the
U.S.
Caren practices the Tang
Soo Do style of karate, which
originated in Korea. The school
she now teaches was started as
Pak's Karate in the 1970s in


the Jacksonville area. Master
Richard Rosenbeck came to
Starke to teach, and there were:
schools in Macclenny and
Keystone Heights also.
When the economy started
going down and the commute
became financially untenable for
Rosenbeck, he turned the school
over to Caren. Eventually,
several of her students who were
members of First Presbyterian
Church of Starke suggested they
move the school there. Because
the church allows the school to
use its facilities without charge,
Caren decided to offer classes
for free.
"Students are expected to
buy their dobok or uniform and
pay for testing," says Caren,
noting that Rosenbeck returns to
administer tests and participate
in ceremonies when new belts
are awarded.
The school has six regular
students now, with Caren's
daughter Carrie Zubillaga
holding the highest rank at
brown belt. Zubillaga has been
*blind since the age of 2, and
teaching her presented unique
challenges they have negotiated
with flying colors.
A typical class begins with

Presbyterian' Church of Starke.


stretching, then progresses to
the forms. There is one form
for each level, with mastery
of 10 required to attain black
belt. After review of forms,
Caren pairs the students up for
sparring-one person attacks,
and the other responds. Next
come kicks, basic movements,
simplified blocks and free
sparring.
Caren advises people
considering taking a karate class
for the first time to come in,


observe,.ask questions and jump
in.
"We emphasize safety, and we
are here to learn and have fun,"
she says.
Although Caren accepts all
ages, she believes children
should be at least kindergarten
age first, and prefers starting
students around age 7. Two
of her seven grandchildren
participated in the school until
they moved away. Currently, her
oldest students are in their 50s.

to writing several hours each

Despite noteworthy events, Union man says his job was just a job


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor

iHe's received bumps and
bruises, and has been in the
vicinity of riots.
Hle flew into Cuba multiple
times, looking out of the plane to
see a number of men earned with
guns.
Hie's been detained at the
airport twice on suspicions of
'being an illegal immigrant.
Sho Billy Melvin of Union
County, there is nothing
extraordinary' about any of that.
(OK, maybe the illegal alien bit
was a surprise.) All he was doing
was drawing a salary, just like
any ordinary, working Joe.
"I just did mny job," he said. "I
didn't do anything spectacular."
Melvin worked for the Federal
Bureau of Prisons for 20 years
before retiring in 1996. He
served as a counselor for four
to five years of that span, but
Jhis favorite part of the job was
transporting inmates.
"The only thing I miss is the
bus," Melvin said, referring to
the Greyhound bus he, another
.officer and a lieutenant rode on
'to take inmates from one federal
,institution to another.
Melvin said such trips could
last a week at a time, with the
intended destination sometimes
,not being the final one. Inmates.
:could be dropped off at one
institution, where Melvin and his
co-workers could find a fax or
e-mail directing them to another
-locale.
"I've been all over this place,"
Melvin said.'
He had some memorable bus
'rides, including a trip to Miami in
the midst of Hurricane Andrew.
"I've been in hurricanes, but
Piot one like that," Melvin said
hs he remembered seeing power
hines down everywhere and
vehicless that had been blown
between buildings.
: On one transport trip, Melvin
6nd his crew were traveling
down the west coast of Florida.
One of the officers had never
seen the Gulf of Mexico, but he
got more than he bargained for as
1a tropical storm was brewing.
: "We were traveling down there,
'and the waves were flopping
all over the road," Melvin said,
adding. "He was ready to get off
the road."
Then, there were the flights
to take Cuban inmates to Cuba.
Melvin said he flew there
probably eight to nine times.
Prior to the first trip, people
told him to expect the plane to
be escorted by Russian MiG
aircraft, and sure enough, that
did indeed happen, Melvin said.
People also told him of the
railroad tracks that crossed the
runway. That, Melvin couldn't
believe until he saw it in person.
"Sure enough, there was a
track across the runway," he said.
SThe scene, though, presented
more than the sight of railroad


tracks. Melvin can remember
seeing men armed with assault
rifles. His thoughts were, "My
God, we're not violent. All we
want is to get in here and get
out."
A bit of culture shock came
with visiting Cuba, Melvin
said, A road which would be
comparable to an interstate
highway in the U.S. would be
traveled by tractors pulling
trailers, horsehdrawn carriages
and vehicles that looked like
they were made in the 1940s and
1950s, Melvin said the people's
'dress seemed to be of the same
era as the vehicles.
If one brewed Cuban coffee in
the same fashion as one would
here in the U.S., you could place
a straw in a cup of it and have
the straw standing straight up,
Melvin said. A quarter of a scoop
per cupl was all you needed.
"It was strong," Melvin said.
Melvin said he got to watch
someone rolling cigars, claiming
the man could "roll those jokers
in a heartbeat."
Speaking of cigars, Melvin
got to catch a glimpse of Fidel
Castro from not too far off. lie
said he recognized him because
of the long cigar in his mouth.
As memorable as some of
those sights and experiences in
Cuba were, perhaps nothing was
as memorable as two particular
flights back to the U.S.
"I've been arrested by my
country twice," Melvin said.
'Ihe reason'? For being an
illegal immigrant.
Melvin said he didn't
understand how it happened
then, and he doesn't understand
it now. He and his fellow Federal
Bureau of Prisons officers knew
something was up the first
time they were detained. They
flew into Miami, but didn't
taxi to where they had on past
occasions. That tipped them off
that something wasn't right.
They were eventually stopped
by a big truck and commanded
to get their passports out.
"We handed in our passports,"
Melvin said. "We looked at each
other and said, 'What's going
on?' It was shock."
Melvin said he and his co-
workers waited six hours, while
arguments among people in
higher-up posit([p took place
around them. -
-Things were eventually'
sorted out, and the officers were
allowed to continue on their
way. Approximately five trips to
Cuba later, though, and the same
thing happened again. Melvin
said what was amazing was
that. the same Immigration and
Naturalization Services woman
who was involved in the first
incident was also involved in
the second.
"We didn't stay on the ground
very long that time," Melvin
said. "We stayed a couple of
hours."
Melvin said 90 percent of

of Prisons-a 4'
job that had

events-since
1996.





the time, the inmates he and his
co-workers were transporting
behaved.
"Then you're going to have
some who are,going to try to
buck the system," he said.
Sometimes, as anybody who
works at correctional institutions
knows, they try to buck the
system at the facilities where
they are housed. Melvin was
stationed at the back gate of the
federal correctional institution
in Talladega, Ala., during two
riots. The reasoning was that
Melvin knew who should be
coming or going.
"Thie reason I was put there
was because I knew everybody
in the prison who worked there,"
Melvin said.
During one of those riots,
Melvin said a man approached
the back gate to make a delivery
at a time when such a delivery
wasn't normally made. Melvin
said he phoned the facility's
lieutenant, who gave the OK
to let the man inside. As part
of normal security procedures,
the man emptied his pockets
before walking through a metal
detector. One of the items the
man laid down was a 32-caliber
gun..
Needless to say, Melvin
again called the lieutenant,
who showed up on the scene
personally. The man was
escorted away by local police.
Melvin admitted he took a
deep breath afterward, knowing
that the man in question was
armed.
There were two riots at
iJnstitotions in Atlanta and
'iOakdale, La., Melvin wasn't at.
but he was on standby. He said
he was originally supposed to
go to those institutions.
Inmates during one of the
Talladega riots took correctional
personnel as hostages.
Melvin said the incidences
were scary, but no less so
than at any other correctional
institution at any level.
"It's just like working down
here for the state," Melvin said
in reference to the Reception
and Medical Center in Union
County, where he worked
prior to taking a job at the


federal level. "You go behind
those gates, you don't know if
you're going to come out that
afternoon."
Melvin's wife, Gail, wasn't
sure if he was going to return
from the 'first Talladega riot,
which lasted approximately two
weeks.
"Ile left, and I didn't see him
for, I guess, a week," she said.
"When hlie finally did come
home, he took a shower, ate
something and went back."
though Melvin suffered no
physical harm during the riots,
hlie was hurt on one occasion, his
wife said.
"More than one time,"
Melvin replied.
The incident, though, that
his wife was referring to was
when Melvin and other officers
went to quite a group of inmates
down. Melvin said his back
got slammed into a doorknob.
which he said, in case you
needed confirmation, doesn't
feel too good.
Anyway, the result was that
he and the other officers were
taken to the hospital to get
checked out. A Talladega police
officer went to inform Melvin's
wife about the incident. She
went to the prison first, but then
was told her husband was in the
hospital.
Gail Melvin said she assumed
the worst.
"I thought you were dead
because you told me that was
the only way you'd go to that
little hospital," she said.


What she found when she got
to the hospital was her husband
sitting there laughing with his
face and arms covered with
bruises.
"They just beat the stew out
of you," she said, to which Billy
Melvin replied, "They still lost."
Gail Melvin, though, knew the
dangers and stresses involved
with working in corrections.
She, too, worked in the field.
She and Billy met while they
both worked at RMC.
They have been married 30
years. Gail said many marriages
where one of the people works
in corrections don't last.
"Maybe that helped our
marriage because I knew what
he was going through," she said,
alluding to her own experience
in corrections.
Besides transporting inmates,
manning the back gate of a
facility during riots and getting
in the occasional scrape, Billy
Melvin also served as an inmate
counselor for four to five years.
"You have to learn to


deal with each person on an
individual basis," Melvin said.
"You have to deal with different
cultures. You have to deal with
different personalities. You have
to learn how to recognize whenI
something is really wrong and
what channels you have to. go
through to get the person help,"
Melvin said he had the chance
to interact with inmates who were
well known a couple of times.
One he can't talk about, he said,
but the other was TV evangelist
Jim Bakker, who was convicted
of fraud in 1.989. Hle also had
the chance to see "Tammy and
her eyelashes," Melvin said,
referring to Bakker's then wife,
Tammy Faye, who was known
for her heavy makeup and false
eyelashes.
In the end, though, his
interactions with famous people
amounted to no more or no less
than any of his other experiences
while working for the Federal
Bureau of Prisons. *
"I just did my job," Melvin
said.

She's your first love and

Fish ig report,
en rn arwss
events calendar
The crappie spawn has been
puzzling this year, and the more
you listen, the more interesting
it becomes.
Fred Magyari tells of finding
Kingsley Lake shellcracker
,beds in December last year. Ed
Allen indicates that is consistent
,with another story he heard. No
one has caught Kingsley Lake
crappie with roe this year, and
Townsend Strickland reminds us
that. they do not fan the bottom
like bream and shellcrackers.
SHave- they spawned in Kingsley
Lake? We do not know yet.
Bass will typically bed shortly
after the crappie. Joey Tyson of
Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle in
Keystone Heights tells us some
bass are being caught from beds
now, and the crappie are still
being caught with roe. He knows
about one-caught in Hamptom
Lake-that went about 8
pounds. Len Andrews caught
a 14-pounder out of Kingsley.
Both fish were released.
SIn regard to Andrews, how
many people have ever seen a
fishing boat in the water with an


8-foot-ladder bolted to the bow?
Furthermore, how many people
have ever seen'a fisherman on
top of the described ladder,
controlling the boat with a
direct-drive, electric motor
while fishing?-
Actually if you are a longtime-
resident of or a fisherman.'on
Kingsley Lake, the answer is
quite a few, and the person that
they see is Andrews.
Andrews lives in Richmond,
Va., with his wife, Lucille.
(His daughter, Lennie, also
lives in Richmond.) He is a
retired carpenter, and during
the 1970s, served as a fishing
guide on Rodman Lake. During
that time, he became interested
in sight fishing and eventually
developed the rig he currently
uses.
After moving back to
Virginia, Andrews could not get
Florida out of his blood; so he
started coming back for, 90 days
each year, in the spring when the
bass are bedding. Fortunately,
he chose Kingsley Laketfor his
spring fishing vacation. During
the other nine months, he sells
fishing tackle in Richmond-
not someone else's tackle,
but his own. He says he has


There's no mistaking the sight of Len Andrews fishing
on Kingsley Lake.


collected more antique and
souvenir fishing items than he
will ever be able to sell during
the remainder of his life.
If you visit Andrews at his
temporary residence and stay
long enough, someone like
George Canova will probably
come by and talk fishing. If
you go out in the boat with him,
you might never see him wet a


line, but if he does, you will see
him 'catch one, and it will be a
big one. If other boats come by,
he will pull in close and talk to
them. He knows more people
on the lake than some people
who were raised there. He is
also a very easy and engaging
conversation and really loves
talking fish.
If you question the


sportsmanship of sight fishing,
please wait. Andrews is a great
conservationist and sportsman,
and follows the same procedure
with each big catch. He probably
does more to teach the big bass
in Kingsley Lake not to bite
fishing hooks than anyone.
First, after landing the fish, he
places them into an aerated tank,
takes them to a dock where a
few photographs are taken and
subsequently releases them
unharmed and much the wiser
about the ways of Kingsley Lake
fishermen.
Andrews is also an astute
observer'of the bass in Kingsley
Lake as well.
"When the water turns
58 degrees, it triggers their
spawnin -instinct," he says.
"On the next new or full moon,
the young bucks move into the
shallow water around the docks,
fan the beds and attempt to
round up a female to lay eggs.
On the next new or full moon,
hopefully the water is Warmer
out deeper and the same process
takes place at about a 10-15-
foot depth. The big females
feel a lot less vulnerable in the
deeper water with more cover,
and that is when you can really
catch them."
Cautious about bragging,
Andrews does say he is most
proud of a five-fish catch in
one day that totaled 62 pounds.
Every fish weighed more
than 10 pounds, averaging
approximately 12 pounds each.
(Andrews put his line in the
water seriously one time this


year and caught a 14-pounder.)
Andrews is a real model
sportsman and a tradition of
Kingsley Lake, and hopefully he
will continue to share this time
of the year with that community.

RABBITS
Continued from 2B
They are most often seen along
highways in the late afternoons,
following a summer shower.
Alas. Something has happened
to the rabbit population, and
one can drive for mniles after a
summer shower and never see
one. The introduction of coyotes
into Florida may have tipped
the -scales against rabbits and
destroyed the species, and while


that reasoning is doubtful, the
coyote did arrive coincidentally
with the demise of rabbits in the
state.
The coyote is a western
animal that migrated into West
Florida in the 1960s and found
a new home. About the size of
a fox, it made itself at home and
became another enemy of the
rabbit. It expanded its habitat
rapidly and has now established
itself in all 67 counties. In
at least one instance, it had
some help,-in re-locating: A


fox hunting landowner in West
Florida bought and released a
number of coyotes, thinking he
had bought "black fox," proving
once again, "There is one born
every minute."
Prisons don't allow inmates to
own pets, but cats are allowed in


the housing area to help control
rats, a problem in every large
institution. Although against
.the rules, inmate will feed
the cats and they will become
unapproved pets.
Outside crews working in
the woods, fields or gardens


would sometimes kill a rabbit,
dress it out and take it into the
compound, there to be sold for
a quarter. The purchaser would
cook and eat the fresh meat.
In one instance, which brought
about a change in routines, an
inmate bought and ate his fresh


meat as usual, only to find out,
he had bought and eaten his own.
cat.
The next day a directive was,
issued that required a foot to be
left on rabbits brought into the",
compound, in order to proved;
the identify of the kill. -
