Strawberry

Festival lineup

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The up and coming Clark Hill Band
has a prime entertainment slot at the
151h annual Strawberry Festival, which
returns to downtown Starke April 20
and 21.
The four-man country band made
up 'of brothers-in-law Jimmie Clark
and Michael Calderin, who split gui-
tar and vocal duties, as well as bass
player Bennie Clifton and drummer
Sebastian Stuto, will take the stage on
Saturday from 1:30-31.m .. -
They wilf share t''isfiVar S taga "
with Tera Tillotston, who .will per-
form from 11-11:30 a.m. Saturday,
and festival favorite Steel Rockin',
who will follow Clark Hill at 3:30
p.m. and rock until 5 p.m.
Sunday will include performances
by talented pageant princess Jaelyn
Jackson, who will sing from 11-11:30
a.m., and the Rainbow Express Clog-
gers, who will take the stage at noon.
Great music is just one of the draws
to Starke's hometown Strawberry
Festival; now entering its 151 year.
The spring event is beloved by locals
and draws thousands of tourists to
Bradford County as well.
-One reason they come year after
year is because the festival also at-
tracts vendors from all over who come
to share their love of art, woodwork-
ing, jewelry making, canning pre-
serves, sewing and many other crafts.
These vendors, joined by representa-
tives from local churches and civic
organizations, line Call Street to wel-
come visitors from far and wide. You
can.even take home a flat or two of
homegroxwn strawberries. --
Along the way they encounter the
festivals fun and games, from train
rides and bounce houses to pony rides
and bungee jumps. There's plenty
to keep kids and fun-loving adults
entertained, and look for photo ops
with Berrylicious, the festival mascot,
Sparky the Fire Dog from Starke Fire-
Rescue-and this year's Strawberry
royals, Kelsey Harrison and Alexa
Park.
Those who make the trek down Call
Street are rewarded not just by the ex-
perience but by the food vendors who
are there cooking up a variety of good
eats. Will it be barbecue, hot dogs,
arepas, gyros? How about something
refreshing like.asrnjootkie.? The.re,rpmy.
even be one or two berry creations to
sample.
Feel free to indulge, especially, if
you show up Saturday morning to
burn some calories in the Strawberry
5K run, proceeds from which will
benefit the Bradford High School
Track and Cross Country Program.
The $2Q entry fee is well worth the
fun of participating, plus you may
take home one of the medals, which
are being awarded to the top male and
female participants in multiple age
categories.
Time is running out to register. Go
to www.bradfordcountystrawberry-
festival.corn by April 16 to sign up.

tion on the festival, and get the latest
news by following the North Florida
Regional Chamber"'of Commerce on

Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to 7
p.m., and Sunday April 21, from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m.


Starke and Hampton


target of state audits


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Having heard from constituents
about questionable business practices.
and rumors of wrongdoing, Rep.
Charlie Van Zant believes its time
both Starke and Hampton undergo the
scrutiny of a state audit.
Bradford County's representative
in the Florida House has called on the
state to "intensely audit" both cities.
Van Zant's requests were taken
up by the Joint Legislative Auditing
Committee in Tallahassee on April
1. In both cases, the committee voted
unanimously to direct the state auditor
general to investigate the cities.
*.That committee includes Bradford -
County's other representative in the
Florida Legislature, Sen. Rob Bradley.
At issue are a number of allegations
of suspicious and possibly illegal
activity involving the offices of Starke
City Clerk Linda Johns and Hampton
City Clerk Jane Hall. Questions are
also raised about policies that involve
the city's other elected leaders as well.
For example. Van Zant's questions
about Starke began with the city's
electric utility and how the city uses


profits from the sale of electricity to
fund general government.
That Starke does this is no secret, and
even the auditing committee's report
recognizes there is no prohibition on
transferring utility proceeds to support
other city operations. Van Zant is
worried, however, that overcharging
for electricity for that purpose
constitutes a tax that no one knows
about. He is further concerned about
what that means for churches and other
tax-free organizations if the city is
requiring them to pay an unofficial tax
through their utility bills.
Business owners have also
complained to Van Zant that the
.city's electric profit raises the price of
gods and services for consumers, as
businesses have to pass costs along to
their customers.
Van Zant said he's been receiving
such complaints prior even representing
Bradford County, and the complaints
have been numerous. Seeking an audit
from the state is his way of trying to
answer the questions once and for all,
he said.

For some on the Starke City
Commission, the 'chance to finally
vote to approve traffic cameras can't
come fast enough, but after further
_..i.c .usion,..April ,.9_, the commission
Vill wait to the end of. the legislative.
session before acting.
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
wanted to know why the issue
never makes the agenda when the
commission has indicated it is ready to
move forward. The most recent delay
resulted when questions arose about
the contract and financial obligations,
the city could be facing if revenue
wasn't generated or the cameras had
to be removed. Those concerns ,have
since been settled, but the issue has
still not come back. to the commission
for a vote.
"I thought it was going to be on the
agenda for tonight, and I see it's not,
and I want to know why," said Waters,
adding he wvas' looking' at' th police'

FCAT

science?


Bring it on!
Fifth-graders at Lawtey Community
School have had their eye on the up-.
coming Florida tComprehensive As-
sessment Test. This will be the first
year these students will be assessed
through FCAT in the area of science.
As the academic demands are raised
throughout the state so is the rigor of
the curriculum. To be sure students are
prepared and comfortable with their
science knowledge, teachers at LCS
made special accommodations.
Beginning in March two days of the
week were dedicated to the largest con-
cepts of the fifth-grade science stan-
dards. The class sizes were reduced
by adding an additional teacher during
this time, and in-depth studies of earth,
space, physical and life sciences were
conducted.
This science challenge time wrapped
up last week with an after-school Sci-
ence Challenge Camp. Fifth-grade
teachers Tracy Hill and Tina Bas-
sett along with Lawtey Community
School's curriculum resource teacher
Denise Ricks led over 50 percent of


Police Chief Jeff Johnson said he
didn't know why.
"I'm done with it. I have presented
everything you could even possibly
think about them red lights. I'm
done," Johnson said, adding he wasn't
responsible for pulling it from the
agenda. "We're done "with it. I've
wasted enough time. It's ready to vote.
Vote on it. Let's do it. Let's get rid of it
or vote for it."
Commissioner Tommy Chastain
said the Florida House and Senate have
been divided about the future of traffic
cameras.
"So until they make the decision as
to what they're going to allow and not
allow, I think we should just sit on it,"
Chastain said.
"I don't care what the Senate and the
House does, because they're going to
do what they want to do," Waters said.
After talking about it for years, lie said
he was ready to act.

A temporary traffic signal will direct one-way traffic as bridges are
repaired.


S.R. 230 resurfacing begins


Improvements to S.R. 230 in Brad-
ford County from St. Clair Street
in Starke to the Clay County began
Monday. The Florida Department of
Transportation project includes resur-
facing the roadway, extending a side-
walk, designating a bicycle lane and
upgrading guardrail and joints on three
bridges.
According to FDOT, motorists can
expect daytime lane closures weekdays
after 8:30 a.m. with flaggers directing
traffic. Work on the Walker Creek and
Fox Creek bridges will require 24-
hour, one-way traffic with a temporary
signal installed until the bridgework is
completed.
Crews will begin with drainage im-
provements at various side streets and
driveways and bridge upgrades on the
3.4-mile long project. The drainage
pipe under Northeast Sixth Lane will
be extended and 47 culverts will have
the end sections replaced to improve
safety in the event vehicles crash into
them. During this same time, the side-
walk will be extended from Alligator
Creek to just east of Colley Road.
Work on the Alligator Creek Bridge


includes removing and replacing sec-
tions of guardrail, as well as the bridge
joints. Work on the Walker Creek
Bridge and the Fox Creek Bridge in-
cludes upgrades to the bridge rail and
removing and replacing the bridge
joints. The work on these two bridges
will require a temporary traffic signal
and one-way traffic over each of the
narrow bridges until the work is com-
pleted. The single travel lane width
will also be reduced to 11 feet during
this- bridgework.
Beginning in mid-May, crews will
remove and replace the top two inch-
es of asphalt. After the resurfacing is
completed, a bicycle lane will be des-
ignated from St. Clair Street to Bessent
Road.
V.E. Whitehurst & Sons Inc. of Wil-
liston has been hired by FDOT to com-
plete the work for $1.4 million. The
contractor has 110 workdays or about
four. months to complete the work,
depending on weather conditions and
other unexpected circumstances.
For additional information, visit
www.nflroads.com or call 1-800-475-
0044.


Students are tested for the first time in FCAT science during their fifth-grade year, and students and
teachers at Lawtey Community School have been working extra hard to get prepared. For more on
Bradford County students succeeding in science, see inside.


the fifth-grade students in a variety of
experiments, activities and instruction.
On Friday, students left the campus
with smiles, prizes, treats, knowledge
and confidence that they had met the
LCS science challenge.


"We're extremely proud of our hard-
working fifth-graders!" said Principal
Lynn Bryan. "Through the Science
Camp and a reading mentor initiative,
our students have received extra sup-
port as they prepare for the FCAT.


Dedicated staff members, who are
willing to go the extra mile on behalf
of students, make Lawtey Community
School a great place to educate chil-
dren."

The information presented
to the auditing committee
doesn't stop with the electric
utility, however. Also called
into question are the city clerk's
handling of cash payments for
utilities. When Johns takes
cash deposits to the bank, those
deposits are not verified after the
fact by the tellers at city hall who
prepared them, and according to
the report, this raises suspicions.
This is apparently out of the norm
and only occurs when Johns is
responsible for the deposits.
The report also alleges that city.
credit cards have been used'fcT
personal purchases, and the city
has only been reimbursed when
the purchases w6re caught. Also,
a card was reported stolen by the
clerk, but when the Starke Police
Department tried to investigate,
the report states that Johns failed
to cooperate.
Other potential problems
related to the city's finances
include keeping commissioners
in the dark about, the city's
budget, conflicts of interest with

Woods snapped at him and told
Warren not to argue with him.

the city auditor and the inability
of the city to pay its bills in a
timely manner. Employees have
alleged that Johns moves money
between accounts without the
commission's approval, and
the report claims there is no
accountability for the thousands
of dollars in donations that have
been received for the police
department's Shop with a Cop
program.
Van Zant's major question for
the city of Hampton is where
does your money go? Of course,
the money he's talking about is
the hundreds of thousands of
dollars collected from traffic
citations. According to Van
Zant, there's no evidence the city
has seen any benefit from that
revenue, and that is aside from
his complaint that the high speed
chases to obtain that revenue put
the public in danger and take
place in an area of questionable
jurisdiction.
Van Zant wants there to be
a thorough accounting of that
money, but as with the city of
StarKe, there are many other
complaint-related allegations,
and they are primarily directed at
Hall, the city clerk.

Johnson sitting near Warren

"We have talked about the
disparity in the revenue for

Spooner said to the chief.

Hampton, like Starke, has been
called out for late payment of its
bills, including a bill for park
equipment supposedly purchased
with grant funds, but Hall has
also been accused of issuing
worthless checks and failing to
issue receipts when customers
take their water payments to her
home instead of city hall.
Meanwhile, according to the
report, citizens complain that
Hall spends "thousands" at local
stores on personal expenses, to
include fueling personal vehicles.
Some also say that Hampton's
employees are not required to
submit timesheets documenting
their time on the job. Reference
is made to an investigation
conducted by the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office at the
request of Tywn Marshall John
Hodges. Also mentioned are
Hall's family relations. Charles
'Hall, her husband, sits on the
city council, while their son
is employed by the city and
their daughter has been paid on
occasion for performing certain
duties. .
In both cases, Starke and
Hampton, Van Zant said he just
wants to know that the right


matter back on the agenda.
Johnson said the contractual
issue has been taken care of.
"Everything is ready to go. I
can't do anything. I can't waste
any more time on this," he
said. While Starke is waiting to
decide, other areas are installing
even more cameras, he said.
Woods said the city has been
looking at this for some time and
it would be "worth waiting" until
the end of the legislative session
to see what Tallahassee was
going to decide.
"If they say go with it, it will
be back on this agenda to be
voted on, I guarantee you that,"
he said.
Waters and the others agreed
to wait a few more weeks.


thing has been done with public
money.
Both Hall and Myrtice Green.
who' is currently serving as
Hampton's mayor, expressed
frustration that no one, including
Van Zant, had spoken to them
about any allegations. They
could have answered questions
and pointed out additional
information, like the fact that
Charles Hall donates his salary
back to the city, and the Halls'
son, Adam, actually took a pay
cut to come back and work for
the city. The city couldn't get by
without him, Green said.
She also said she's not upset
at all and understands perfectly
why people would want to an
audit performed.
"No one is hiding anything.
I wish people, would come
and ask questions first before
they go making all these
accusations," Green said,
pointing as an example to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Investigation that
determined no laws were broken
when the city annexed and began
traffic enforcement on U.S. 301.
"Everything does come out in the
wash, good or bad," she said.


"I'm a little surprised Rep.
Van Zant didn't feel the need to
come in and talk to us," Hafl said'.
"I think we could have cleared a
lot of it up."
Nevertheless, Hall said the
city welcomes the opportunity
the audit presents to clear the air.
"It's ridiculous to say there's
money missing, because it took
every dime and more (to cover
the city's expenses)," Hall .said,
adding the city has just finished
up its financial audit for 2012.
Johns was more reluctant
to comment on the state audj.t
announcement, choosing simply
to say she doesn't have a problem
with the audit. People seem
to feel like there is something
"going on," but that is not the
case, she said.
Van Zant said he is not
assuming wrongdoing has
taken place and added that it's
premature to talk, about what
will happen if any wrongdoing
is uncovered. He said he hopes
the scrutiny brings no pressure
to those implicated because they
have, in fact, done the right thing.
The auditor general will set the
timeframe for the audits to take
place, he said.

Charles Van Zant's request ft'or an audit of the city of Starke.

Letter from Rep. Van Zant to the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee

March 21,2013

Dear Chair Abruzzo,


Bills, and the City's auditor.

Background

The City of Starke (City) is a Florida municipality originally incorporated as the Towi of Starke
in 1870 and then reincorporated as the City by Chapter 13426, Laws of Florida (1927). Located ini
Bradford County, the estimated population of the City in 2012 was 5,437. The City operates under a
mayor-commissioner form of government and is governed by an elected five-member city commission.
The five city commissioners annually elect one commissioner to serve as the mayor and one to serve
as the mayor pro tern. The City provides law enforcement, fire control, electric, gas, water, and sewer/
wastewater services.

Joint Legislative Auditing Committee Staff Analysis

March 27,2013

SI. Summary


There are indications of some improvements to the electric'rates charged by the City over the past
couple of years. Reportedly, the City's rates were among North Florida's most expensive in 2008 and
2009. As of late 2011 they had dipped below the rates in the Cities of Gainesville and Jacksonville and
were about even with the rates of Progress Energy. However, at that time the rates for Clay Electric
Cooperative were approximately.$12 less per 1000 kilowatt hours than the rates for Starke ($116.70 vs.
$104.87). A City employee attributed the reduced power costs in Starke to a reduction in line Idsses and
improved electric meter accuracy. Based on 2012 data reported by the Florida Power & Light Company,
the residential rate per 1000 kilowatts in the City of Starke was slightly below the average price of the
state's 55 electric utilities. The residential rate charged by Clay Electric continued to be substantially
less than those cha-ged by the City of Starke. Also, there is no indication ,thatthe City has recalculated
the fuel adjustmep,su charge which was the Bsis of the.District School Board's complaint to the PSC.
" oi :
Representative Van Zant's concerns regarding the use of revenues generated from electricity being
used for other purposes appears tobe accurate. For example', as reported in a local newspaper, "facirig
a $400,000 deficit in its 2012 budget, the city commission asked the police department for further cuts
... but Ithel Police Chief ... said he couldn't do it without cutting personnel. In the end, the commission
closed the deficit as it had in the past by transferring revenue from utilities. The amountrtransferred was
significantly less than in prior years, however due to cuts that were made to the police department and the
elimination of most recreation expenses." In addition to electricity, other utilities provided by the City
include gas, water, and sewer/wastewater.

Florida's "Municipal Home Rule Powers Act" provides that unless expressly prohibited by Florida's
Constitution, general or special law, or county charter, municipalities are granted broad powers'to
carry out their functions. Neither the Constitution nor state laws appear to restrict the use of revenues a
municipality collects from the sale of electricity. The City is located in Bradford County which is not
a charter county. Therefore, unless the City Commission is prohibited by local ordinance from usifing
electricity revenues for non-electricity or non-utility related purposes, there does not appear to be a
violation of any laws or rules..

Revenues and Expenditures/Expenses
Based.on annual financial reports (AFRs) filed with the Department of Financial Services (DFS) for
the past three years, the City reported the following financial information for all of their funds:

Financial Audit
In accordance witn s. 218.39(l)(b), F.S., the City is required to obtain-an annual financial audit
conducted by an independent certified public accountant which the City retains and pays from its public
funds. The most recent audit that has been submitted to the Auditor General is for the 2010-11 fiscal year
and included the following:

Management's Discussion and Analysis: Financial and Other Highlights
"As of September 30,2011, the City's governmental funds reported combined ending fund balances-
of $1,753,909. Fund balance increased by $41,275 from the prior year. Approximately 9% of the fund
balance, $155,122, is unassigned for spending at the City's discretion. The remaining fund balance,
$1,598,787, has been assigned by the City Clerk or City Commission or is restricted by providers. :
The City paid down outstanding bonds and notes payable-in the amount of $1,771,551 and overall
the City's total debt decreased by $1.6 million during the current fiscal ydar.

awards assisting in long-term debt pay ments.
The City has been able to level fluctuations in electric customers monthly power cost adjustment due
to the implementation of a rate stabilization policy."

Audit Findings
11-01 Fixed Asset Records/Inventory (Material Weakness): As noted in two previous audit
reports, a physical inventory of utility system fixed assets was not performed as required by the Florida
Administrative Code.
11-02 Financial Health of the Utilities System: For the fourth consecutive year, the utility system
has experienced declining revenues. Although the City has compensated by decreasing expenditures, it
continues to see a decline in unrestricted net assets and it has been difficult to meet cash flow demands.
11-03 Payroll Controls (Material Weakness): The auditors noted numerous conditions that they
believe are weaknesses in internal control due to a lack of oversight.
11-04 Criminal Justice Education: The City's Police Department used funds collected pursuant to
s. 938.15, F.S., for the purchase of computer-related items for police vehicles. These funds are intended
for education and training for the officers; the auditor believes the use of these funds was in violation of
the law.
11-05 Gross Receipts Tax: The City is not charging the amount of gross receipts tax on electric
services as specified in law. Rather, the City is undercharging theampount by 1l.5%, which results in a
reduced amount remitted to the State to fund the Public Education Capital Outlay and Debt Service Trust
Fund.
11-06 Utility Billing (Material Weakness): The auditors noted weaknesses in the internal controls
over utility billings related to the detection of mathematical errors and manual verification of computer
calculations.
11-07 Local Option Gas Tax Funds: The auditors raised concerns regarding the use of an
accumulation of local option gas tax funds. The use of the funds is restricted to paving expenditures, yet
the funds are commingled with other funds.
11-08 Fund Balance Reserves: The City has not prioritized the order in which assigned funds will
be used to meet current operating needs as required by governmental auditing standards.

Findings 11-01 and 11-02 have been included in at least three successive audits, and on February
18, 2013, as authorized by s. 218.39(8), F.S., the Committee took action against the City for failing.
to correct these findings. As a result of the Committee's action, the City Commission is required to
provide a written statement to the Committee explaining why full corrective action has not been taken or
describing the corrective action that is planned. If a statement is not provided, or the statement provided
is deemed to be inadequate, the Chair of the City Commission may be requested to appear before the
Committee. Finding 11-04 was also included in the previous year's audit.

Although the auditors determined that the City did not meet any of the financial emergency conditions
described in s. 218.503(1), F.S., 17 they determined that some unfavorable financial conditions existed.
As required by the Rules of the Auditor General, the auditors applied financial condition assessment
procedures and determined that 6 of the 18 financial conditions evaluated for the City revealed
unfavorable results. The auditors stated that "the unfavorable results are primarily a result of deficit
spending due to declining revenues of the utility system and general funds. These unfavorable trends
could impair the City's ability to maintain existing service levels with current revenue sources, to fund
capital purchases and to borrow funds."


I believe an intense accounting of these monies from January 2010 through December of 2012 is
warranted, and I have enclosed numerical supporting data. The serious question needs to be answered:
Where did all this money disappear to?
Senator Abruzzo, I sincerely appreciate you taking the time out to discuss this with me, and I hereby
attest that this letter is a formal request from me to perform an in-depth audit of the City of Hampton,

Allegations
"Distrustful Financial Situations"

Using years 2010 thru 2012

After numerous complaints from citizens and local businesses, it is suspicioned that the City of
Hampton is either misusing or misappropriating government funds according to local government
accounting standards.
(1) It is alleged that the employees are not always required to submit time sheets to obtain payroll
checksissued by the city. This is verified by an Internal Affairs report conducted by the Bradford County
Sheriffs Office at the request of Chief John Hodges (8/30/2011 case #BCSO I110FF000946).
(2) It is known that the city clerk Joan IJane] Hall is the wife of city commissioner Charles Hall. Also
employed by the city is her son Adam Hall. It is also alleged that their daughter, unknown name, is paid
periodically for supposed functions performed.
(3) The citizens of Hampton who are required to pay their water bills are often requiired to take them'"
to the city clerk, Jane Halls Home Instead of city hall. No receipts are given from her home.
(4) From January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2012, the city received approximately $616,959.99 in
traffic fine revenue. The city clerk routinely calls the Bradford County Court house the first of each
month needing their monthly traffic ticket revenue. Numerous complaints have been made for non-
payment of bills. Such complaints have come from the local ford dealer (Murray Ford), DGG laser
(Jacksonville) and for purchase of new park equipment, which was purchased through a grants process.
These are only a few, shown for example. Although unverified, it is rumored that several worthless
checks have been issued.
(5) Citizens complain that city clerk spends thousands at local stores for the personal use her and
her family. This included purchasing fuel for personal vehicles. This complaint was made from an
anonymous source fearing retaliation.
(6) The city has not held proper elections in numerous election cycles/years. They have not elected a
mayor in more than four years, leaving them with a four member board.
The above information is just a short list of some of the more significant allegations against the City
of Hampton, Florida.

Joint Legislative Auditing Committee Staff Analysis

March 27,2013

I. Summary


The Joint Legislative Auditing Committee (Committee) has received a request from Representative
-The audit for the 2011-12 fiscal year has not yet been submitted; it is required to be filed by June 30, Charles Van Zant for an audit of the City of Hampton, located in Bradford County. He has concerns
2013. related to accountability of the revenues received as a result of aggressive traffic enforcement.


City Budget Informnation
Although required by law, no budget information was able to be located on the City's official website.
Chapter 2011-144, Laws of Florida, which became effective October 1,2011, requires municipalities to
post their tentative budget, adopted budget, and budget amendments on their official website within a
specified period of time.

Previous Attempt to Obtain an Auditor General Audit of the City
: In 2Q11, Committee staff were contacted by a citizen of Starke who was interested in an audit of
the City by the Auditor General. Florida law and Joint Rules of the Legislature provide some options
for individuals who believe an Auditor General audit is needed, providing that the Auditor General
is-authorized to conduct an au4it of the specific entity. The citizen decided to pursue a petition audit
request, as authorized by s. I 1.45(5)(a), F.S. This option, which is only available for an audit of a
municipality, requires the-Committee to direct the Auditor General to conduct an audit of a municipality
whenever petitioned to do so by at least 20 percent of the registered electors. The law specifies that
the petition must be submitted to the Supervisor of Elections for verification within one year after the
petition is originated. Although Committee staff received periodic updates of the progress of the petition,
apparently the required number of signatures was not obtained within one year of its origination as the
Committee never received the petition.

Other Considerations
'If the Committee directs the Auditor General to conduct an audit of the City, his office would conduct
an operational audit and take steps to avoid duplicating the work efforts of the DDF CPA Group, the
City's auditors for the financial audit. The primary focus of a financial audit is to examine the financial
statements in order to provide reasonable assurance about whether they are fairly presented 'n all material
respects. The focus of an operational audit is to evaluate management's performance in establishing and
maintaining internal controls and administering assigned responsibilities in accordance with laws, rules,
regulations, contracts, grant agreements, and other guidelines. Also, in accordance with s. 11.45 (2)
(j), F.S.-the Auditor General will be required to conduct an 18-month follow-up audit to determine the
City's progress in addressing the findings and recommendations contained within the previous audit.
The Auditor General has no enforcement authority. If there are indications that fraud is being
committed, the appropriate law enforcement authority will~be contacted. Implementation of corrective
action to address any audit findings is the responsibility of the City's board and management, as well as
the citizens living in the City. Alternately, any audit findings that are not corrected after three successive
audits are required to be reported to the Committee by the Auditor General and a process is provided
ins. 218.39(8)(a), F.S., for the Committee's involvement. First, the City Commission may be required
to provide a written statement explaining why corrective action has not been taken and to provide
details of any corrective action that is anticipated. If the statement is not determined to be sufficient, the
Committee may request the Chair of the City Comimission to appear before the Committee. Ultimately,
the Committee may direct the Department of Revenue and the Department of Financial Services to
'withhold selected state revenues from the City that it would ordinarily be entitled to receive.
If there are any concerns relating to the work of a licensed CPA firm, such concerns should be directed
to the Florida Board of Accountancy (Board). Pursuant to Chapter 473, F.S., the Board wvas created in
the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to regulate the practice of public accounting
and adopt rules to implement the provisions of law, including rules relating to competence and technical
standards and discipline. Such rules include references to rules of the Auditor General. Every CPA
and CPA firm in the state is governed and controlled by this law and these rules. Neither the Auditor
General's Office nor the Committee have the jurisdiction to review and comment on the professional
judgment applied by a CPA firm.

111. Effect of Proposed Request and Committee Staff Recommendation
If the Committee directs the Auditor General to perform an operational audit of the City of Starke,
"Committee staff recommends that the Committee allow the Auditor General to set the: (1) scope of the
audit, providing that the concerns of Representative Van Zant are addressed, and (2) timing of the audit
as audit resources are available, consistent with his work plan and so as not to jeopardize the timely
completion of statutorily mandated assignments.

Letter from Rep. Van Zant to the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee

March 21,2013

SDear Chair Abruzzo,

After several years of increasing citizen's complaints regarding the law enforcement tactics of the
Hampton Police Department plus alleged misuse of public money, I hereby request the Joint Legislative
Auditing Committee to conduct an in-depth audit of the City of Hampton in Bradford County, Florida.
Owning a little more than 1000' of US 301 that is questionably in their jurisdiction, they have for years
put the general public at risk with high speed pursuits in order to collect speeding tickets. Presently, they
have pulled off of US 301 due to complaints and meetings that myself and other representatives have
held with FHP, the Bradford County Sheriff, and the Bradford County Delegation meetings the past two
years.
However, for the more than $600,000 that this city has received during 2010, 2011, and 2012,
from only citations, plus all other city revenue, there is no visible evidence that constituent services,
infrastructure, or capital improvements of any city property have occurred in this very "tiny" city. The
population is 400-500. The police chief and staff often numbered 15 or more during this time frame. That
is a policeman for every 31 persons.

evidence that constituent services, infrastructure, or capital improvements of any city property hav6
occurred in this very 'tiny' city." He also provided a list of specific concerns related to questionable
activities of the Citiy Crke-the City's failure"topay certain bills, allegations that the City has issued
worthless checks, instance'sin which'chemplOyees'are not required to submit time sheets, anrid the elections

In general, according to the information the City reported to tle DFS, the majority of its revenue is
received as a result of traffic enforcement. The City, which includes a small portion of U.S. 301 between
Gainesville and Jacksonville, has a reputation for aggressively enforcing speed limits and other traffic
violations., In early 2012, after receiving numerous complaints regarding the number of traffic citations
issued, the City's Police Chief announced that he was pulling his officers off of U.S. 301. Several
months later, he reversed his decision but indicated that his officers would not be writing the volume of
citations as they had earlier since the police force had been downsized. The following table shows the
percentage of revenue the City has received, broken down by type of revenue, for the three most recent
years that have been reported to the State. Traffic citations were the primary source of revenue in two of
the three years. The exception was in the 2010-11. I fiscal year when the City received Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) grants which were used to complete two park projects.

The City reported that a significant portion of its revenues were spent on costs associated with its law
enforcement efforts for the three most recent years reported to the State. Again, except for the 2010-11
fiscal year in which the park projects were built, the majority of expenditures were for the cost of law
enforcement personnel, operating expenses, and capital outlay as shown in the following table:

Financial Audi
In accordance with s. 218.39(l)(b), F.S., the City is required to obtain an'annual financial audit
conducted by an independent certified public accountant which the City retains and pays fronrits public
funds. The most recent audit that has been submitted to the Auditor General is for the 2010-11 fiscal year
and included the following:

.. Management's Discussion and Analysis: Financial Highlights
9 "The City's net assets increased by $321,550 (or 96%) overall as a result of this year's operations.
While net assets of the government activities increased by $293,235 (or 88%), net assets of the water
seryipe9!creased b y$28,315.
0.rtj t^ CJy'!s -s(SS-ty.ayit(yN4qr, srvfips),, revenues increased to $5.1 ,732 (pr9, 9T.incre4s,e
from the prior year) while operating expenses decreased by $11,744 to $94,967. Grant revenue of
$63,333 was received during the year from the CDBG grant for water capital improvements.As a result,
the net assets increased by $28,315.
The City completed the 2 park projects during the year. The projects were funded largely from the
FRDAP grants from the state of Florida totaling $271,222.
S* The City's police department received donations of police vehicles and auxiliary equipment worth
approximately $56,000 during the year."

SAudit Findings
9 Audit Finding # 1: Due to limited personnel, the City does not adequately separate the duties in the
accounting department. The City has hired an independent accountant to perform the bank reconciliations,
as well as other accounting tasks; however, the bookkeeper still performs many of the reconciliations.
Audit Finding #2: The City did not make the monthly transfer to the Sinking Fund bank account each
month as required by the bond resolution. As a result, the City paid the annual bond payment out of the
operating- account.
Audit Finding #3: The Water Fund has not been covering its costs without support from the General
Fund.
Audit Finding #4: Although the 1979 Bond Resolution requires the City to transfer, on a monthly
basis, $45 to a reserve account until this account equals $5,422, and thereafter whenever such account is
less than $5,422, the balance in the reserve account was $146.
Audit Finding #5: The bank reconciliations were not always performed in a timely manner, and some
transactions that have not cleared the bank were so old that they are not likely to ever clear the bank.
Audit Finding #6: The City does not use the approved budget to control spending in the law
enforcement department. As a result, the law enforcement department often expends more than the
approved budget.
Audit Finding #7 (Significant Deficiency): The City does not have staff with the accounting
knowledge and experience to prepare the financial statements in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles (GAAP).
Audit Finding #8 (Significant Deficiency): The auditors noted many disbursements that were coded
incorrectly as to department and expense type. Also, a deposit was incorrectly dated by over a month.
The auditors recommend that the.bookkeeper review -he output periodically for obvious errors. In
addition, the independent accountant assigned the month-end reconciliations should also review the
general ledger for obvious errors.
Audit Finding #9: T'he City does not have a system in place to track the audit findings.
Audit Finding #10: A bank account of the City's water fund was not recorded on the City's general
ledger..
Audit Finding #11 (Significant Deficiency): The auditors noted that the bookkeeper was performing
reconciliations instead of the independent bookkeeper. In one instance, one of the bank accounts was
reconciled to the wrong monthly statement.
Audit Finding #12 (Significant Deficiency): The auditors noted that the bookkeeper sometimes
records transactions using the accrual method and sometimes records disbursement using the cash basis
method. Consequently, the accounts payable at the end of a given month can contain numerous errors.

Findings #1 through #5 and #7 have been included in at least three successive audits, and on February
zi18, 2013, as authorized by s. 218.39(8),F.S., the Committee took action against the City for failing
nto correct these findings. As a result of the Committee's action, the City Commission is required to
providee a written statement to the Committee explaining why full corrective action has not been taken or
describing the corrective action that is planned. If a statement is not'provided, or the statement provided
liis deemed to be inadequate, the Chair of the City Commission may be requested to appear before the
lCommittee.
. The audit for the 2011-12 fiscal year has not yet been submitted; it is required to be filed by June 30,
.r2013.

Committee may request the Chair of the City Commission to appear before the Committee. Ultimately,
the Committee may direct the Department of Revenue and the Department of Financial Services to
withhold selected state revenues from the City that it would ordinarily be entitled to receive. '

III. Effect of Proposed Request and Committee Staff Recommendation
If the Committee directs the Auditor General to perform an operational' audit of the City of Hampton, ,
Committee staff recommends that the Committee allow the Auditor General to set the: (1) scope of fhe
audit, providing that the concerns of Representative Van Zant are addressed, and (2) tinfing of the audit
as audit resources are available, consistent with his work plan. and so as not to jeopardize the timely
completion of statutorily mandated assignments. "I .

Records from the Bradford County Clerk of Circuit Court provide the following breakdown of civil.-:
traffic fines that were collected for the City for a three-year period: ..

Total Received $581,343.99 ... $35,616.00 $616,959.99


For perspective, a comparison cf the number of traffic citations issued by the City's Police Department
was made to the number of traffic citations issued by police officers in other small municipalities. Marrny.:;
smaller municipalities do not maintain a police force, but rather contract for law enforcement services,
with their County Sheriff. Municipalities with populations ranging from 391 to 1, 138 were reviewed.
The DHSMV compiles statistics on citations issued within municipal boundaries when a citation is-;
issued by a municipality's police department; it does not compile the number of citations issued by a
Sheriff's Department within a municipality when it is uwder contract to provide law enforcement. The
following table lists all municipalities for which the number of traffic citations was available from the:
DHSMV for both the 2011 and 2012 calendar years. The only other municipality in which the number ;
of traffic.citations exceeded the number issued by the City of Hampton was the City of Waldo. AAA has
designated two "traffic traps" in the nation, the City of Lawtey (U.S. 301) and the City of Waldo (U.S.,.
301 and State Road 24). Both appear on the list below. :,

The City is approximately one square mile. As can be seen in the map on the following page, the
boundaries of the City are basically a square with a narrow strip of land leading to the west which
provides access to U.S. 301. The City's traffic enforcement efforts on U.S. 301 appear to generate their
most complaints. :

to determine .that there was any fraudulent intent, and the case was closed. '
Other Considerations
If the Committee directs the Auditor General to conduct an audit of the City, his office would conduct
an operational audit and take steps to avoid duplicating the work efforts of Reddish and White CPAs,
the City's auditors, for the financial audit. The primary focus of a financial audit is to examine the
financial statements in order to provide reasonable assurance about whether they are fairly presented
in all material respects. The focus of an operational audit is to evaluate management's performance in
establishing and maintaining internal controls and administering assigned responsibilities in accordance
with laws, rules, regulations, contracts, grant agreements, and other guidelines. Also, in accordance
with s. 11.45 (2)(j), F.S., the Auditor General will be required teconduct an 18-month follow-up auilit
to determine the City's progress in addressing the findings and recommendations contained within the
previous audit. '
The Auditor General has no enforcement authority. If there are indications that fraud is being
committed, the appropriate law enforcement authority will be contacted. .Implementatign of corrective
action to address any audit findings is the responsibility of the City's board and management, as wells
the citizens living in the City. Alternately, any audit findings that are not corrected after three successive
audits are required to be reported to the Committee by the Auditor General and a process is provided
ins. 218.39(8)(a), F.S., for the Committee's involvement. First, the City Commission may be required
to provide a written statement explaining why corrective action has not been taken and to provide

Th1e communal ity of Lakew'ood,
located west on S.R. 100, has
been, a Firew\vise community for
10 years. In 2003, Lakewood
residents were concerned about a

Residents have created and
implemented a Firewise plan,
held regular Firewise board
meetings and held 10 annual
coninimunity cleanup days.
"All of these efforts have
greatly reduced the wildfire risk
in this community," said Brian
Johns, director of emergency
management in Bradford
Couiity.
On Saturday, March 16, 33
residents, volunteers and Florida
Forest Service firefighters
dedicated 258 hours of sweat
equity to the Lakewood Firewise
program. Volunteers met at the
Lakewood community lot for a
safety briefing and were divided
into, chainsaw, brush mowing
Sand, limb dragging crews.
A Forest Service grant
provided Silver Wings Tree
Service out of Lawvtey to prune.
tree' limbs overhanging houses
and remove some hazardous
tree's. Volunteers drug limbs to
the street, which were chipped
by the Florida Forest Service.
At noon, all of the volunteers
enjoyed a community lunch.
1 Johns said, "Lakewood was
honored to have city, of Starke
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
and seven volunteers from

out to help with the day's
activities."
Twelve properties were
impacted and a dozen dump
truck loads of wood chips were
spread on driveways. The city of

How is asparagus grown?
SWayne McRae,
Starke
Although bunches of asparagus stalks are
now a common sight in our grocery store pro-
duce departments, I remember a time when only
the canned variety was readily available. I first
tried canned asparagus as a teenager. I wasn't
impressed by the vegetable's mushy texture or
metallic taste.
As an adult, I discovered the wonders of fresh
asparagus. I found a recipe in "The Silver Palate
Cookbook" that included instructions on how to
prepare it, noting that "this best of all possible
vegetables needs only the simplest kind of at-
tention to bring out and preserve its goodness."
To prepare asparagus, take each spear by its
ends and bend it gently in half; the spear will
snap near the point where tenderness begins.
Discard the woody stem ends-I suspect many
people who "hate" asparagus were turned off
after biting into a woody stalk. After rinsing the
tip ends, drop them into a pot of boiling water.
Allow the water to return to a boil; remove the
stalks when they reach the desired doneness. To
make that determination, you may have to take
out a spear and bite into it.
I've prepared asparagus so many. ,
times that I go by the color, removing :z 1 '
the stalks as soon as they turn bright 1
green. I also go by the way the spear
looks when I take it out of the water- it
should be nice and firm, not too droopy.
Perhaps I was permanently turned
off by the mushy canned asparagus of UF F']
my youth, but I prefer a "crisp-tender" i.
texture, which takes only a minute or
two to achieve after the water returns to boiling.
To stop the cooking Process, I plunge cooked
spears into an ice-water bath for a minute or
two. After removing them from the bath, I like
to drizzle the drained spears with salad dress-
ing before serving. Honey Dijon is an excellent
choice, but any variety will do.


Attorneys
across north
Florida join
forces against

foreclosure

Temporary funding
expands availability
of free legal aid

for homeowners
Due to a temporary increase
in funding,- many previously
ineligible Florida residents
facing foreclosure may now take
advantage of free legal services
'as the state's most experienced
housing attorneys are banding
together to address rising
foreclosure rates.
"Three. Rivers Legal Services
is happy to have an opportunity
to extend our services at this
time to a greater number of
homeowners in dire straits and
those who are continuing to
struggle during this economic
downturn and recovery," said
Allison Thompson, executive
director of Three Rivers Legal
Services. "We are grateful to be
a part of the solution." *
SThese efforts could not have
come at a better time. Floridians
today face a foreclosure filing
rate that doubles the national
average. In fact, Florida's
foreclosure rate has now been the
highest in the nation for the fifth


But, you didn't ', '
ask about how to -
prepare aspara- .o .
gus; you wanted ..\
to know how it is f. '
grown. Unfortu-
nately, asparagus is ,
not well adapted to '
Florida. Good as- ,
paragus production ..
is dependent on a
dormant period, -7
which is brought "
on by cold weather
or drought, and Mary W. Bridgman
Florida typically
has neither. "
The University of Florida document I re-
viewed, publication HS546, which is available
'at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mv013, indicated that
over 90 percent of the fresh asparagus shipped
to markets in the United States comes from Cali-
fornia, New Jersey, Washington and Massachu-
setts. However, when traveling in Peru, my hus-
band and I learned that asparagus is a big cash
crop in that country. I have noticed "product of
Peru" labels on many asparagus bundles in lo-
cal grocery stores since then. Because asparagus,
has not caught on with the locals in Peru, most
Peruvian asparagus is shipped to the U.S.
Asparagus plants are perennials. The under-
ground portion consists of stems, or rhizomes,
and roots from which the edible stems (spears)
grow. Young "crowns," consisting of roots and
rhizomes, are grown from seed and planted in
beds. Under the best conditions, beds can re-
main productive for 30 years or more.


Aspirin
R .ENER The spears are cut in the spring for
!,m two or three months. Afterwards the
B greenery, or fern, is allowed to grow
Sand nourish the underground parts of
>, the plant for the following year's crop.
SFerns may reach heights of 39 to 59
inches. You may be familiar with or-
,RI.5 "namental asparagus ferns. They are in
&i.... the same family as the vegetable, but
do not produce edible sprouts.
Because Florida weather doesn't usually al-
low for a dormant period, growth of the aspara-
gus plant is continuous, resulting in weak, spin-
dly spears. However, asparagus beds in north
and central Florida can still yield good quality
spears for four or five years.

even if no formal action has been
taken.
Lawyers and advocates at
Three Rivers Legal Services
are available Monday through
Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5
p.nm. to address a wide range
of issues including short sales,
bankruptcy, and how to lower
mortgage payments.
Experts will also be on hand
to advise residents who belong
to a homeowners or condo
association. It often comes as
a surprise, to many members
of these associations to learn
that even if they are current
on their mortgage, failure to
pay homeowners' or condo
association fees may put them at
risk of foreclosure.
Individuals who could
benefit from these free services
should contact Three Rivers
Legal Services to schedule a
consultation as soon as possible.
Funding is limited and expires
on June 30,2013. /
Interested persons in north

Library Week
This week, the Bradford

braries in schools, campuses and

their communities, campuses

committed to the places where
their patrons live, work and

munity can gather to reconnect
and reengage with each other to
enrich and shape the community

When is Candy Dangerous?


When it is Used to Flavor Tobacco!

Tobacco companies are using candy and fruit flavors
to sweeten their products and make them
more attractive to our children and teenagers.
But this is a dangerous bait-and-switch designed
to addict younger and younger kids to tobacco
creating life-long customers.

Florida PSC

reminds Lifeline

customers to

annually certify

eligibility
Florida's Public Service
Commission is reminding
Florida customers enrolled in
the federal Lifeline Assistance
telephone discount program that
they must annually certify their
program eligibility with their
telecommunications carrier.
Federal Lifeline program
changes implemented last year
to curb waste, fraud and abuse
require customers to annually
certify their eligibility to continue
receiving the monthly discount.
In Florida, Lifeline subscribers
declined by 34 percent (about
349,000 customers), from more
than 1 million to approximately
680,000, according to results
filed in December 2012.
"While it's imperative to
eliminate program abuse, we
believe that most dropped
Lifeline recipients were not
aware of the new certification
requirement and, as a result,
lost their benefit," said PSC
Chairman Ronald A. Bris6. "In
Florida's still slow economy,
Lifeline provides' a much needed
discount on qualified low-income
residents' monthly phone bills."
Chairman Brise continued,
"Eligible customers can receive
only one Lifeline- benefit. if
you are a qualified Lifeline
subscriber, check your phone biil
to ensure that you are receiving
your discount. Contact your
telecommunications carrier if
you failed to respond to its annual
Lifeline certification request and
are eligible to recertify."
Lifeline eligibility is based on
income, at least 135 percent of
the federal poverty level, or by
participation in one of several
federal assistance programs,
such as SNAP, Medicaid, or
SSI. Florida Lifeline subscribers
receive at least a $9.25 discount
on their monthly telephone bill
or a free wireless telephone with
a set amount of monthly minutes.
For more information on
Lifeline or. to access a program
application, visit the PSC's
website, www.floridapsc.corn.
and look under Hot Topics on the
homepage.

BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN
Special to the Telegraph

Tea at the Starke Country Club
last Sunday afternoon. Many of
the ladies were decked out in
full tea-party regalia-hats and

Guests dined on, a sumptuous
feast of sweet and savory
delicacies prepared by Virginia
Autry, former proprietress of
Strawberry Tea Room, at tables
set with fipe china, crisp linens,
and fragrant floral centerpieces.
The menu featured strawberry
tea; blueberry and strawberry
scones served with clotted cream
and lemon curd; tea sandwiches
of Ginger's Chicken Salad, garlic
cheese and pineapple cream
cheese; pink meringue cookies;
lemon bars; chocolate-covered
strawberries, from Bradford

brought nearly every
attendee present to
her feet.
Massey
introduced
hometown girl
Dr. Erica Canova
of Gainesville
Dermatology
and Skin Surgery
as the keynote
speaker. Canova
shared sobering
statistics: one in
five Americans
will develop skin
cancer during his
or her lifetime, and
one person dies
every hour from
melanoma, the most
pernicious form of
the disease. But she


Virginia Autry

said the news is not all grim,
because all forms of skin cancer
are curable if they are detected
early enough. For this reason,
she recommended regular skin
cancer checks. Folks should
begin having checks during their
teenage years, repeating every


A" r
>.' "-


two to three years until age 35.
At that point, the checks should
be done annually.
Canova warned against the
dangers of tanning beds, noting
that those who use them have
a 75 percent higher chance of
developing melanoma. She
said that melanoma is the
most common form of cancer
in people ages 25 to 29. She
recommended spray-on tanning
as an alternative, advising that
one should take care not to
inhale fumes associated with the
procedure.
Sunscreen will help prevent
skin cancer, according to Canova.
However, she said most people
don't use enough of it. "It takes
30 grams-about enough to fill
a shot glass-to cover the body,
and it should be reapplied every
two hours when you are out in
the sun." For that reason, she
recommends sun-
protective clothing.
Canova explained
how to recognize
three different kinds
of skin cancer,
including basal cell,
squamous cell and
melanoma. Basal cell

Memory of brother keeps Tucker involved in Relay for Life


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Vicki Tucker's initial
involvement with the American
Cancer Society's Relay for Life
may have come about by chance,
but there is no question she will
be doing her part every year to
raise funds and do what she can
to help others.
"The very first year that I did
it, I pretty much made a lifetime
commitment to myself that I
would always be involved one
way or another with Relay," said
Tucker, who lives in Keystone
Heights. "If I can help one
family from going through what
our family went through, then
everything would be worth it."
This year's Bradford-Union
Relay for Life, scheduled for
Friday and Saturday, April 12-
13, from 6 p.m. until noon at the
Bradford High School track, will
be the fifth such event Tucker
has taken part in.
Tucker does not or has not had
cancer, but she lost her brother,
Jerry Crockrell, to esophageal
cancer in April 2008. When
trying to cope with the grief
she was experiencing at the
time, a doctor suggested she do
something constructive with


her time as well as something
that would honor her brother's
memory. She began making
jewelry.
One day, Tucker's mother-
in-law entered Chrissy's Olde
Meeting House Cafe wearing
some of the jewelry. Restaurant
owner Chrissy Allen saw the
jewelry and fell in love with
it. She wanted to know if
Tucker would be interested in
displaying some of her pieces
in the restaurant and donate a
percentage of the sales to the
American Cancer Society.
"That's how I became
involved, in Relay," Tucker
said. "I became a member of
(Allen's fundraising) team, the
Downtown Girls."
Tucker's first Relay for Life
was in 2009, approximately two
years after her brother's death.
"He got sick in July '07,"
Tucker said. "We didn't really
know that he had cancer. He had
some confusion and was getting
sick to his stomach."
A trip to the emergency room
revealed that Crockrell had four
lesions on his brain. There was
still uncertainty in regard to
what exactly was wrong with
Crockrell, but medical personnel
deemed the most important thing


at that moment was to remove
the lesions.
Tucker said the family talked
to a doctor who felt confident
that he could determine what
kind of cancer Crockrell had
following further testing on the
lesions that were removed. As
it turned out, though, the doctor
couldn't figure out what was
wrong with Crockrell.
Months of testing followed,
Tucker said. Finally, within
two days of being taken to the
Community Cancer Center of
North Florida, Crockrell was
diagnosed with esophageal
cancer. Unfortunately, the cancer
was at an advanced stage.
It was hard for Tucker to
watch her brother lose weight
until he weighed less than 100
pounds. At one point in his life,
he weighed 275-280 pounds.
It was hard for Tucker to even
recognize her big brother.
"Toward the end, the only
thing I could recognize, really,
was his eyes," Tucker said. "He
had the brightest, blue eyes."
Despite the fact the cancer was
taking such a toll on his body,
Crockrell never gave up living
his life. Until two weeks before

Bradford-Union Relay for Life to take place April 12-13 at BHS track


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
People will be walking all
night long in a show of support
in fighting cancer during the

takes place Friday and Saturday,
April 12-13, from 6 p.m. until
noon at the Bradford High

Bradford students Harden, Ricker advance and place at state fair


10 BHS, BMS

Harden and Tessa
Ricker in placing at
regional fair

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor

If you hypothesized that
Bradford Middle School eighth-
grader Tessa Ricker and Bradford
High School freshman Alec
Harden accomplished a rare feat
.-by placing at the 58th annual State
Science and Engineering Fair
of Florida, it would seem your
conclusion would be correct.
BMS science teacher Sabrina
Harden, who is the mother of
Alec as well as Ricker's teacher,
said Ricker is "the second
n iddle-schooler we've had get to
go to state in many, many years."
(Alec Harden did so as a BMS
student last year.)
It apparently has also been
a while since a BHS student
advanced to the state fair.
"I've asked around to find
out when we had our last senior
division kids there," Sabrina
Harden said. "Nobody seems to
have record or is able to tell me."
Alec Harden earned

at the Feb. 12-13 Suwannee
Valley Regional Science and
Engineering Fair. His project on
"Green Construction" earned the
Overall Best Physical Science
Project for the senior division,
with Harden also winning
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
"Taking the Pulse of the Planet"
Award and the ASM Material
Science Award..,
Harden was also the only
regional participant to be invited
to take part in the I-SWEEP
(International Sustainable
World/Energy, Engineering,
Environment) Project Olympiad,
an international science fair that
is scheduled for May 8-13 in
Houston.
"It was very shocking,"
Harden said of the I-SWEEP
invitation. "Really, the only
thing I was expecting to do was
go to state again."
Hardenri's project involved
testing two hypotheses
concerning different types of
construction blocks- those
made strictly with concrete and
those with various materials
mixed in with the concrete,
such as plastic and Styrofoam,,
or organic matter. The thinking
behind the project was to find
a way to utilize materials that
cannot be recycled or are not
recycled enough.
The two hypotheses Harden
tested concerned the insulating
properties and the strength of

He thought the blocks with

stronger.
Unlike Harden, Ricker was
making her first trip to the state
fair.
"It was really nerve racking,"
Ricker said. "You walkinto this
room, ind there are so many
projects, and they're so big.
They have these monstrous
projects."
Ricker wound up placing
fourth with her project that
tested two types of windmill
blades-those typically found


harden.sabrina@mybradford. us
or tinsler.julee@ mybradford.us.


on backyard windmills and
those found on industrial wind
turbines. She measured the
voltage each type of blade
produced with an analog
multimeter and using a leaf
blower as the wind source.
The project conclusion
supported Ricker's hypothesis
that the industrial-type blades
would be the most efficient.
Ricker earned her way to state
by placing first in the junior
division of Environmental
Sciences at the regional level.
She also won the Association
of Women Geoscientists, the
Florida Association of Science
Teachers and the Broadcam
MASTERS (Math, Applied
Science, Technology and
Engineering for Rising Stars)
awards.
A total of two BHS students
and 19 BMS students competed
at the regional fair, combining
for four first-place, two second-
place and four third-place
awards, and one honorable
mention. Bradford students wonr
seven of 28 possible special
awards, as well as one Special
Trip Award.
Sabrina Harden said she and
her fellow teachers have set
high standards for their students,


and the showing at the regional
fair, along with the two students
advancing to and placing at
state, shows that students are
taking those standards to heart.
"It's not just the fact that
they're doing their work,"
Harden said. "The quality of
their work is improving above,
and beyond what it used to be.
They're really starting to take
some pride in and putting energy
and work into what they do."
BHS science teacher Linda
Ricker, who is the mother of
Tessa Ricker, said, "In my mind,
it put Bradford County back on
the map." ::
Besides Tessa Ricker, the
BMS students who placed at the
regional fair and the awards they
earned were as follows:
Holly Pendarvis, sixth
grade, third place in Botany; :
Zach Windle, eighth grade,
honorable mention in Physics
and runner-up for the state fair;

well as in honor of those who are
currently battling cancer or who
have survived it. However, there
is a lot of fun associated with the
Relay for Life as games and fun,

Tucker said some people
believe they have to be on a
fundraising team to attend the
event, but all are welcome, no
matter how long they stay or if
they choose not to walk.
"I had this same
misconception," Tucker said.
"They think if you're not part
of a team, or you're not directly
involved, then you can't attend.
That's not true. Anybody can
come. You don't have to walk.
You can come have a chicken-

supporting a team by purchasing
something from them."
For her part, Tucker will keep
up her part-in raising funds every
year for the American Cancer
Society. As soon as one Relay
for Life ends, she begins her
work in supporting the next one.
"It never ends," Tucker said.
"That's kind of our slogan-
until there's a cure, we'll never
quit fundraising."

some of the unsavory characters

blame by looking in a mirror.

Time for .
Lawtey citizens
to stand up -

Dear editor:
I have' lived in Lawtey since
January 2009 and started
attending council meetings in
January 2010. I attend every
monthly council meeting with
the exception of the time I'am
away on vacation. At every
council meeting I have attended,
I see the same half dozen or so
people at the meetings.
The only time I see other
people at the meeting is' when
misinformation is disseminated
by one person or more who have
an agenda or an axe to grind and
turn the council meeting into a
free for all. These individuals
feel they either own the town
because they have lived here
the longest or they were a city
official.
These4individuals keep the city
. in constALturmoil-andd continue
to divide this city. I continually
hear the terms like the "west
side" or the "east side," but I
have yet to hear anyone say "my
city."
I know there are some really
intelligent people in this city,
but I fear they are in hiding for
whatever reason. If it is out of
fear of retaliation because of
those that are bullies or misuse
of their powers, it doesn't
matter. The only way this city is
going to survive is for the good,
intelligent and Christian people
to stand up and take control of
our city.
To quote Edmond Burke,
an Irish political philosopher
of the 181 century, "All that is
necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing?'
This is quite evident in the city
of Lawtey-that good men are
doing nothing to move this city
forward.

IVet Fest set for this weekend


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Billed as "Bradford County's
premier, free concert event," Vet
Fest '13 welcomes more than 15
musical acts to Thunder Music
Park (9057 U.S. 301 South in
Hampton) Friday-Sunday, April
12-14.
Event chairman Jim Mitzel
said that unlike past years'
events, this year's Vet Fest has
been revamped to provide fun
for all ages.
"What we're trying to
concentrate on is making it
family oriented," Mitzel said,
adding, "It's not a biker event."
With that in mind, there is a
"Kids Korral" this year April 13-
14. The area, which has a one-
time $1 fee, will include a bounce
house, magician and face painter,
while the Florida National Guard
will provide a climbing wall on
April 13. The area will be fenced
and under constant supervision
so that parents can enjoy the rest
of the event without worrying
about their children.
Bingo games for all ages will
be available, offering the chance
to win cash and merchandise
prizes.
Vet Fest begins with a kickoff
party at 5 p.m. on April 12. The
Tropical Whiskey Band will play
from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.
A lineup of bands including
Clark Hill, Crossfire Warriors
and the Gayla Graves Band out
of Nashville will play beginning
at 10 a.m. on April 13 and at 9
a.m. on April 14. The national
anthem and a presentation by the
NAS Jacksonville color guard
will take place at 3 p.m..on April
13.
A car show will be held April
14. The entry fee is $15 per
vehicle-any make or model,
including motorcycles. The show
begins at 9 a.m., with awards
presented at approximately 3
p.m.
The winner will receive half of
the entiy fee total.
A VIP tent will be open April
13-14. For $25, a person can
enjoy, a seafood dinner with
drink, an additional two drinks
(alcoholic or non-alcoholic) and
a VIP packet.
Part of the money raised,at the
event will go toward the Hampton
Veterans Memorial Fund as well
as to other organizations that
assist veterans, such as Hundreds


for Heroes, Hot Rodding for
Heroes, VetSpace, Volunteers
of America-Cabin in the Woods
and Homes for our Troops.
The event will also support the
Bradford Food Pantry. Barrels
will be available at the festival
so that visitors may donate

Fishing
report, wildlife
corridor,
calendar
'.Well, it looks like the warm
wIeather has resumed-even
before Easter this year-and the
bass bite has followed. The local
bass tournaments have turned in
good catches this week for those
who have been able to confront
the rain.,
Unforrunatek, the crappie
bite tends to fade as the bass
.tart corning onand that seems
,to be consistent with this year's
development.
j Rainfall has been plentiful
this year in North Central
Florida, which is a contrast to the
previous tradition. Hopefully.
that will discourage the forest
fires that tend to follow the dry
springs, and it should stabilize
the lake leels that are currently
good except for, the ridge lakes
in Keystone. :

Freshwater fishing
Joe\ T\ son's Bald Eagle
Bait and Tackle recent weekly
tournament was held, April 3at
Santa Fe Lake. Clint Sheppard
and Jason McClellan took the
total weight at 17-plus pounds,
,and the big fish at 6-plus pounds.
SIt was raining throughout the
tournament, but the participants
fished diligently and produced
some relatively good weights.
.,'hese tournaments are held
weekly and are' open for
prospective fishermen.
1 The Sampson/Rowell
tournament was held April 4,
"and while it did not rain, the
weights were down somewhat
on this evening. Richard Kelly
aid Darrell Kennington took the
.tal \\ eight at 8.78 pounds, and
-K Ie Jerrels and Jesse Gathright
bought in the bigfish.
'-This tournament : is also
open to the public, and new
participants are welcome.
It should be restated that
all of the bass caught at these
tournaments. are returned to, the
water. '" .-,.
V.As noted earlier, the crappie.
bite has already slowed, but the
bass spawn -and bite will run
'for a few more weeks. The next
-bet item in local waters will be
he shellcrackers. J.T. Prevatt
says you can tell when the.
Shellcrackers start to bed when
you hear the whippoorwill.
Interestingly, Ed Allen says
tb has heard the whippoorwill,
pd he also hears that the
6ellcracker bite is hot right
.io6w on Lake Lochlossa. Gary
Simpson's weekly Gainesville
port also confirms that rumor.
't On most lakes, the
shellcracker spawn will precede
the bluegills. That timing,

The Florida Sportsman's
blog is currently in high praise
of the channel catfish bite on
the St. Johns River. Like most
freshwater fish, the channel cats
get romantic in the spring and
usually will bite a hook baited
with just about anything. They
do get large, pull well :and are
rather tasty.

Saltwater fishing
The big action on the east
coast seems to be the redfish
and big, black drum. The reds
typically tend. to get into the
inland waterway tributaries'. but
some have been caught around
the jetties recendN.
Black drum are usually caught
around, bridge pilings and
jetties. Most people recommend
heavy grouper tackle for the
large drum so the\ release

eating, but good reproducers.

Race event gets off to good start --.j


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
His racing days may be behind
him, but Tom Smith was ready


to strap in once again when the
call for gentlemen to start their
engines rang out over the PA
system.
Though not every race car


driver-past and present-
climbed inside their vehicles to
start their engines, the noise was
still deafening and surely caused
the heart rates of those close to
the sport to quicken. ,
"I was ready to go out and run
a couple of laps, if you want to
know the truth, when they fired
those motors up," Smith said.
Approximately 70 race cars
and many more people were
present at an April 6 racers'
reunion hosted by Smith
Brothers Body Shop just north
of Starke. It was a chance for
drivers who competed on tracks
from the central part of Florida
to Brunswick, Ga., or Waycross,
Ga., to gather and reminisce.
Smith said he got the chance to
chat with people he hadn't seen
in 35 to 40 years.
Starke resident Jack Frazier,
a former racer himself, said it
didn't take him long to renew
past acquaintances.
"I just got here, and I've
already seen five people I
haven't seen in 20 years,"
Frazier said.
Frazier began racing. in the
1960s, driving on tracks in Lake
City, Jacksonville, Daytona,
Brunswick and Waycross, as
well as at Talladega, Ala., and
once at Charlotte, N.C.
"I enjoyed them all," Frazier
said. "Dirt was the main thing. I
loved dirt tracks."

Frazier said he was part of a
group of. drivers who looked
forward to driving on Thursday,
Friday and Saturday nights,
"and hope somebody rained out
so we could run on Sunday."
Smith, like Frazier,
experienced a flood of memories,
admitting, "I'd like to jump back


in (a car) and run about a 100-
lap feature right now."
For Smith, it was an
overwhelming turnout of people
who not only looked at race cars
and itched to get back behind the
wheel, but admired a display of
classic cars and the auto museum
on site at Smith Brothers Body


Shop. "
The event, organized by-
Smith, his brother, Jerry, atnd
Charlie Poindexter, is planned'
as an annual event.
"This was a starter," Smith
said. "Now, we're going to do it
a bunch of times, I hope, for as
long as I'm alive."
