Auditor responds to allegations about city work


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The firm that audits the city of Starke went before
the commission April 16 to offer a strong response to
allegations from Rep. Charles Van Zant that there has
been a conflict in the firm's work for the city.
Van Zant has said suspicions he took to the Joint
Legislative Auditing Committee in requesting the
state audit the city were based on numerous citizen
complaints. But Lora Douglas of DDF CPA Group
denied any wrongdoing Tuesday.
In an attempt to avoid the appearance of
wrongdoing, the majority of the commission voted
to cancel DDF's 2012 audit for the city and advertise
for qualifications from other auditors.
The information presented to the auditing
committee stated that DDF not only audits the
city's finances, but provides other daily accounting
services, and there is a conflict if DDF is auditing its
own work.
"The allegations are not truthful, they are
defamatory and could cause monetary damage to
DDF CPA Group," Douglas told the commission


Tuesday. "Our attorney has informed us that Mr. Van
Zant enjoys total immunity for his statement, whether
it is true or not, in his capacity as a representative to
the Florida House of Representatives."
Douglas said that the only true information
presented to the auditing committee about DDF was
that the firm has worked for the city for more than 20
years. While the allegations stated it would be easy
to review invoice records DDF has sent to the city of
Starke, Douglas said there has been no public records
request to review DDF's billing statements to see
what work the firm has performed.
Had that happened, Douglas said it would have
been clear to anyone with knowledge of the standards
of the'U.S. Government Accountability Office that
DDF has only invoiced the city for allowable services.
She read a'list of services that under GAO rules
would not be allowed, including maintaining and
posting transactions to basic accounting records,
matters to do with utility billing, payroll, developing
internal control policies, making policy decisions,
authorizing transactions, etc.
"We have not performed these types of services.

How do you

like your

berries?
BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN
Special to the Telegraph


Knowing how you like your
eggs cooked may be important
when ordering breakfast, but living
in Bradford County, home of the
sweetest strawberries this side of
heaven, it's important to know how
you like your strawberries.
Valarie Jackson of Lawtey likes
them with sugar and lots of whipped
cream on top. Timmy Bergman of
Starke says he prefers strawberry
shortcake, made with real pound cake.
He can't decide between topping
shortcake with whipped cream or ice
cream but sees no problem with using
both.
Tiffani Howell of Starke loves
strawberries, saying she'll eat them
"any way I can get them." Jenna
Fulgham, also of Starke, said she
likes them "sweet," but added she
likes strawberries covered in white
chocolate the best.
Mackenzie Dicks of Keystone
Heights goes for traditional strawberry
shortcake, while her friend Amber
Reichert of Starke says strawberries
are best "squished and mixed up with
ice cream."
So how do you like your
strawberries? With the Strawberry

and Amber Reichert. Below are Valarie Jackson and Timmy

After we complete our audit fieldwork, we are off to
another audit client, so performing regular and daily
activity is not in the realm of possibility," she said.
"If you really think about it, if we were performing
regular and daily accounting activities and then
auditing our own work, do you really think you would
have such a critical audit?" she asked, referring to
the list of criticisms the city generally receives on an
annual basis.
There are services not related to audits that are
allowed under GAO rules, Douglas' said, and DDF
offers those services, including providing technical
advice based on their knowledge and expertise.
"This is what we do a lot of for you guys. You
come to us and ask questions and we provide 6ur
technical expertise based on our knowledge of the
city," she said. This includes providing information
on implementing audit recommendations and good
business practices.
"I just wanted to point out that there seems to be
a big disconnect between the allegations that were
made and what we actually do," she said.

School

employees get

more money,

more to come
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor


Last week the school board approved
contractual changes to provide
increased pay for teachers and other
union employees, but others received
increases as well.
Changes were also made to the
administrative salary schedule.
Administrators received one percent
more regardless of their place on
the schedule. Those eligible were
able to move up one step based on
their experience as well, and that
was retroactive to the beginning of
the school year. Anyone at the top of
the schedule who could not move an
additional step received a $500 bonus.
Confidential employees, who are
education support professionals who
are not a part of the bargaining unit,
received the same compensation
increase as those in the union. That
amounted to two steps up the salary
schedule retroactive to the beginning of
the school year, plus one more effective
at the end of March for those who
qualified. The salary schedules were
increased by one percent retroactive
to the beginning of the contract year
for instructional employees and ESPs.
Instructional employees at the top of
the salary schedule who were ineligible
for a step increase received a $500
bonus, while ESPs received $300.
The school district and union will be
meeting again before long to continue
negotiating the waters of teacher
evaluations and performance pay-
mandates handed down by the state.
Next year the district will be divvying
up $77,000 from the Teacher Incentive
Fund grant that will be available to
teachers at Bradford Middle School
and Bradford High School who are
evaluated effective or highly effective.
Even teachers on contract (who will
not be forced into the performance
pay system) can participate during
this pilot year without impacting their
contract status.
The TIF grant-a five-year $26.8
million grant for nine Florida school
districts-aims to increase student
growth in core subject areas, increase
graduation rates, improve educator
performance and compensation, and
improve assessment systems for
student growth and educator practices.
According to the U.S. Department of
Education, the program incorporates
performance-based compensation and
professional development components
to provide financial incentives and
career-ladder positions to participating
teachers and administrators.

Landfill hasn't given up on renewable energy Ex-chamber exec making comeback


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
A recent response to a request
for proposals has revived hopes
for a gas-to-energy project at the
New River Regional Landfill.
Judging by the name alone,
Landfill Energy Systems would
seem to be the perfect choice, but
it was the details of its proposal
that impressed. Following a
discussion with staff last week,,
the New River Solid Waste
Association decided to enter
contract negotiations with the
company.
Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal said there was a lot of
interest when the request for
proposals was advertised. In the
end, just four proposals were
submitted.
Landfill Energy Systems
proposes two electricity-
generating engines on site that
will turn gas released from the
decomposing waste into energy.
The company already has 45
energy projects, four of which
are in Florida, including the Trail
Ridge and Brevard facilities.
One of the deciding factors was
its existing power purchasing
contracts. Electricity produced
at the New River landfill would
be sent to Jacksonville Electric
Authority.
A prior project fell apart when
the chosen company could not
find an end user. Other proposals
submitted this time, including
one from a company who
wanted to sell the power to the
Department of Corrections, had
no purchasing agreements in
place.
Without end users, O'Neal
said the projects were just ideas,


AUDIT
Continued from 1A

Douglas also said a sentence
regarding DDF's work for other
elected officials--namely the
city clerk and police chief-
was inaccurate, but she said
information about their private
clients -including their
identity--is confidential.
"It would not be appropriate
for us to discuss our clients'
business, however, had we
prepared tax returns for any
elected city official, they would
be charged at the same rates as
our other tax clients, and we do
not feel like our independence
would be jeopardized in any
way," Douglas said. In addition,
she said the individuals who
work with tax clients are not
the same as those who perform
government audits.


New classes

at the senior

center
If you are 50 years of age
and older, you can enjoy all the
classes and events at the Brad-
ford County Senior Center. The
newest class is a woodworking
and whittling class. Learn how to
create works of art from a piece
of wood. Class meets every other
Wednesday, and the next class
will be May 1 at 10 a.m.
The senior center also offers
computer classes. A popular
class is Digital Photography. The


and engineer Joel Woolsey of
Jones, Edumunds and Associates
agreed.
"You have one that rises to
the top because they've dotted
all there I's and crossed all their
T's. In other words, they're not
hoping to pull off a project;
they've demonstrated they
have a project to pull off," said
Woolsey. He called the company
a "sure bet."
Landfill Energy Systems
also claims it can fully fund the
project, as well, in contrast to one
company that wanted NRSWA
to pay for the project.
First year earnings for the
landfill for the use of its gas are
estimated to come in around
$200,000, with the annual
average being $160,000. Over
the life of the project-a 15-
year contract is proposed-the
landfill could bring in nearly
$2.4 million. That even takes
into consideration the money
the landfill will'have to spend
assuring the quality of the gas
being used.
The member counties foresee
splitting the revenue. Union
County Commissioner Wayne
Smith also wants the board's
attorney to investigate how
property tax revenue from the
project, which would go to
Union County, can be shared by
all three members.
New River will have some
other costs associated with the
project as its engineers work with
the developer. A new engineering
work order for $69,500 was
approved. The amount approved
for outside attorney work was
not to exceed $50,000.
Fifteen years was thought to


In the past, the commission
acted to separate daily accounting
duties from audit-related tasks
by contracting with both DDF
and Reddish and White. Reddish
and White have not been asked
to provide services to the city in
some time, perhaps contributing
to speculation that DDF was now
providing both kinds of service.
After hearing of Van Zant's
request to the Joint Legislative
Auditing Committee, it was the
consensus of the city commission
to either transfer auditing duties
for the year to Reddish and White
or advertise for qualifications
from other firms interested in
conducting the audit for Fiscal
Year 2012.
When the commission met
again April 16, the decision was
made to cancel DDF's 2012 audit
and to request qualifications from
other firms. This was in spite of
DDF saying no conflict existed

be a good term for the contract.
Woolsey said by the end of that
term there would be even more
gas from the landfill's growth as
well as new technologies related
to the profitable use of that gas.
In the meantime, if landfill
gas production is higher than
expected, an additional engine
could be added to the project or
the board could opt to use it in a
compressed natural gas project to
fuel haulers.
Currently the landfill's air
permit requires it to collect the
gas from the landfill and flare it,
which actually costs money in
addition to destroying a source
of revenue.

In other business:
SBradford County's recent
Toxic Roundup collected
24,452 pounds of waste from 71
households, along with around
250 residents who disposed
of paint and fluorescent lamps
throughout the year. That
included 10,980 pounds of latex
paint, 7,280 pounds of flammable
liquid, 1,520 of used oil and
lubricants, and 2,225 pounds
of electronic equipment, plus
pesticides, batteries, propane
tanks, medications and more.
The board voted to purchase
a new compactor from Ring
Power for the state contract price
of $607,940, with a guaranteed
buyback of $200,000. The
purchase will be made out of
next year's budget.
To improve returns, the board
voted to allow staff to begin
to put together an investment
policy, which should eventually
lead to hiring an investment
manager.


and the inability of anyone else
to answer Commissioner Wilbur
Waters' question whether there
was actually a conflict.
Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner said there was an
"appearance" of a conflict,
although no one pointed one
out specifically. Attorney Terry
Brown said if there was any
violation of the rules, it was not
intentional on the part of the
commission.
Waters split with rest of the
commission, voting against
canceling DDF's audit in favor
of another accountant. Mayor
Travis Woods, however, said he
wanted to protect the city as well
as DDF.
The commission also plans to
advertise a resolution to establish
an audit committee to review
qualifications and select the
auditor.


DAN HILDEBRAN
Monitor Editor
It has been four years since
Ron Lilly was fired as president
of the North Central Florida
Regional Chamber of Commerce
and three years since Bradford
County deputies arrested him for
stealing chamber funds.
Even though the State
Attorney's Office later dropped
the charges, it has been a long
and difficult recovery.
Over the last two years, Lilly
has developed his love for cars
and his talent for restoring them
into a burgeoning business.
On April 20, Team Lilly's
Classic Cars, along with Harvey's
Supermarket and Dollar General
will present a classic car show
at the two retailers' locations
between Keystone Heights and
Melrose.
The show will mark one more
milestone in Lilly's comeback.
In October 2008, chamber
staff and board members accused
the president of stealing a variety
of items, including a golf cart, a
tent and liquor mix. However,
the case eventually centered
around two payroll checks Lilly
allegedly coerced a staffer into
issuing to him.
According to court papers,
a Starke police investigator
was sceptical of some of the
allegations from the beginning.
"Well they said he had
taken a whole bunch of stuff,"
investigator James Hooper said
in a deposition. "I mean, they
went from saying everything
from liquor mix, some kind of
drink mix that they provided for
a fundraiser, all the way up to
pay checks to stereo equipment
to-I mean you just name it.
They went on. A tent, there was
supposedly a pop-up tent that
was missing."
Hooper said chamber staff
members later found some of
the allegedly stolen items at the
chamber building, a converted
bank office.
"It's an old bank," he said, "so
in the old vault, they kept some
of the items in there. And some
of those items were found in
there."
Hooper added that other
allegedly stolen items were later
returned by Lilly's wife Kim
Skidmore, who also worked at
the chamber.
Lilly's lawyer then asked
Hooper, "Are you saying that-
that these people at the chamber
were making these accusations
against Ron Lilly, and the
number of them were unfounded
accusations?"
"Yes. They were unfounded,"
replied the investigator. "I
cannot prove otherwise. Some
of the stuff was at Ron's house,
but he was the president. I mean
it wouldn't be uncommon for me
to think after a festival, being the
limited storage that the chamber

had, to store it in the space that
Mr. Lilly had."
Over time, each allegation
brought by the chamber
evaporated because of a lack
of evidence. Authorities never
charged Lilly for the tent, liquor
mix and other items. Another
allegation that he purchased
a golf cart for himself with
chamber funds was the next to
go. Authorities dropped another
claim that Lilly and Skidmore
conspired to steal $8,500 by
using chamber funds to stock
an ATM owned by Skidmore.
Skidmore had made a deposit
into a chamber bank account to
replace the money.
The only remaining charge
involved two payroll checks.
The police claimed that Lilly
coerced a staffer into cutting the
negotiable instruments.
However, in order to make
the checks. valid, two chamber
board members had to sign the
documents, and that is where the
case against Lilly fell apart. He
did not have possession of the
checkbook and he did not have
check signing authority.
The chamber claimed that
Lilly obtained unauthorized pay.
However, during depositions,
Lilly's attorneys David L.
Redfern and Kyle Tate appeared
to be building a case that when
the two board members signed
the checks, they authorized the
payments.
The State Attorney dropped
the charges on Nov. 23, 2010,
citing a lack of evidence.


After the chamber fired him,
Lilly spent two years working
at a Keystone Heights-area
ministry. Then in August 2010,
an acquaintance asked him to
restore a 1960 Corvette. He
finished the job six months later;
and the happy customer started
talking. Classic car buffs travel
to weekend cruise-ins and .car
shows together, so word spread
fast about Lilly's skills.
Now he has 18 projects
in process with a three-year
backlog. He is trying to hire
some help to get him through the
work. He specializes in Corvettes
and Camaroes older than 1980.
It is a niche business with few
competitors and Lilly has found
a way to distinguish himself by
transparency. He says he shows
his customers all the parts and
materials invoices he gets on
a job and keeps a visual and
document record of each project,
compiling all the information
into notebooks that his customers
can look over.
About 10 months ago, Lilly
started hosting cruise-ins at the
Gator Bait Sports Bar in Melrose.
He says the events have been. a
big draw, and the April 20 car
show is the next step to promote
his own operation, along with
other local businesses. After the
car show at Harvey's, he willtbe
hosting another cruise-in 'at the
Gator Bait Bar and Grill later that
same day.
Lilly says if the car show goes
well, it will mark one more step
in his recovery.

been scheduled in April. There's
a reason for that. Area grow-
ers may start picking strawiber-
ries as early as December, but
tnid-March to the end of April
is when the Bradford straw'berry
season traditionally peaks.
SSome folks in Bradford liJke to
think of their county as Florida's
strawberry central, and in Flor-
ida's earliest strawberry years
that was absolutely the case. A
0988 centennial edition o!l-' the
Bradford County Telegraph
quoted an 1898 edition oj' the
Florida Semi-Weekly Advocate,
in which reporter S.F. Gardiner
said, "Starke is considered the
headquarters of the strawberry
business." The following year,
GRidiner called Starke, 'The
Strawberry City of Florida."'
'The Gulf Coast Research Edu-
cation Center-Dover, located
near Bradenton, also place.; the
lirth of Florida's strawberry
industry in Starke and La'wtey
around 1878. Other sources, in-
clhding Telegraph references,
place strawberries in Bradford as
early as 1870.
Whenever they arrived, S'tarke
became strawberry central b y the
end of the 191 century for two
reasons: (1)because the land. and
th,, climate were right for the
crop, and (2) the railroad tracks
already ran through the area.
What's more, the trains 'were
already stopping in Starke and
Hampton to pick up other 13rad-
ford County produce.
..In the 1800s and early 1900s,if
you were shipping fragile sitraw-
bleries elsewhere, the berries; had
to get where they were going; fast
and be eaten shortly after they
had been picked. Railroad men
aid farmers soon discovered that
refrigeration helped.


The Telegraph's centennial
supplement attributes the intro-
duction of Bradford strawberries
to grower Guy Knickerbocker,
who also developed an early one-
bushel refrigeration box.
An item in the Telegraph's
April 13, 1888, edition, among
the paper's earliest, stated,
"Mr. H.E. Clark will have a re-
frigerator car on the side track
from Monday until Thursday,
10 o'clock for the purpose of
putting all strawberries for (dis-
tributors) Sharp, Cox and Urie,
of Philadelphia and C.S. Durley,
New York."
In the earliest days, the ship-
ping was done to a handful of
large northern cities. "At pres-
ent all strawberry cars, and boxes
take to the water at Savannah,
causing great delay, but (a) pro-
posed new line is to run all the
way by rail," the 1888: Telegraph
said.

An early strawberry field with a family spread out through the rows.


Locally, everybody ate straw-
berries; but if you wee 'a north-
ern metropolitan consumer
still in the depths of winter, the
shipping costs priced strawber-
ries high, and only the solidly
middle and upper-middle classes
and metropolitan swells enjoyed
strawberries with any regularity.
In an April 1900 edition, there
was this Telegraph note: "Our
strawberry growers have been
somewhat disappointed to find
that the same old transportation
rate on strawberries prevails this
season. They had expected better
things when the (Florida Central
& Peninsular Railroad) became a
part of the Seaboard Air Line."
In a sense, the history of straw-


1v


berries in Bradford Ci(htf is the
history of refrigerated transport.
At first, a refrigerated railroad
car consisted mostly of one that
had been iced down. When pro-
ductive, reliable icehouses were
completed beside the Starke and
later the Lawtey railroad loading
platforms, it was big news and
shipping capacity jumped.
In its April 10, 1924, edition,
the Telegraph reported that the
following Friday, the Intermit-
tent Vacuum Pre-cooling Corpo-
ration of New York would give
a demonstration of its modem
process of precooling fruits and
vegetables by forcing cold air
into a refrigerator railroad car al-
ready iced down. The following

week's Telegraph reported that,
during the demonstration, when
the temperature of the car was
at 32 degrees and the berries at
42 degrees, the company advised
operators to cut out one of the
three ammonia coils and shut off
the blast to avoid freezing the
berries. The week after that, the
Telegraph reported that a mes-
sage from New York stated that
the fruit arrived the Wednesday
after the demonstration in perfect
condition. "The consignee and
railroad men were pleased," the
Telegraph said.
Jump ahead 16 years, there
was this note in the April 5,
1940, edition that signaled an-
other serious shift had occurred
in the strawberry industry. "Be-
fore two o'clock that afternoon
the first refrigerator truck of the
season had rolled out of Starke,
the chugging of its cooling appa-
ratus making sweet music in the
ears of buyers and sellers alike."

Trucks and even refrigerated
trucks had actually first appeared
in the waning years of the 1930s,
and the effect was this: The rail-
road no longer had the straw-
berry growers under its thumb.
Bradford strawberries could now
be sold to agents and distributors
who owned or leased refrigerated
trucks, and even to truck owners
who might take the berries on
consignment. A few truck own-
ers became buyers hauling out-
right for their own larger profits.
There were even a few occasions
when growers or a collection of
growers bought their own refrig-
erated trucks and did their own
hauling.
The moment trucks arrived,
the berries could be destined
for just about any location in
the United States and even in
Canada. The trucks opened new
markets. Strawberries could be
purchased by big city dwellers,
but also by people in small towns
along the way as the trucks rolled
north. The markets expanded im-
mensely.
The only problem was, if you
could ship strawberries from
here to there, you could also
ship them from anywhere else to
there-or here.

The competition
Bradford County had 10 to 20
years of free range in the straw-
berry market. However, by 1890
it had serious competition just
down the tracks in Hillsborough
County-a town called Plant
City.
Hillsborough had some advan-
tages Bradford didn't. For one
thing, Hillsborough had been
incorporated as a county as early
as 1830. Bradford came onto the
scene, first as New River County
and then as Bradford County in
1861.
Hillsborough had a landmass
good for agriculture and was
more than twice as large as Brad-
ford. The Hillsborough weather
was more consistently warm all
year round with fewer freezes.
Oh yes, Plant City had one
other thing: Henry Plant's rail-
road. Plant was a wealthy capi-
talist and railroad baron who
had worked in shipping since he
was a boy. He was handed sev-
eral large shipping corporations
to manage, including an express
shipping contract for the Con-
federacy during the Civil War.
After the war, the South's rail-
road system had been devastated
and Plant saw big opportunities.
He bought up and tied together
a number of smaller, bankrupt
Florida railroads to create the At-
lantic Coast Line.
Plant joined other railroad bar-
ons, including Henry Flagler, to
create a railroad investment firm
using his and their money. There
was hardly a railroad in Florida
he didn't in some way touch. He
built a large hotel, a Moroccan-
Victorian $2.5 million show-
piece that is now the main build-
ing of Tampa University. He
began to lure tourists away from
the peninsula's east coast to the
Gulf and Tampa. Plant City was
named after him.
Within a decade of the straw-
berry's introduction to Hillsbor-
ough County, Plant City had in-
dividual strawberry farms of 200
to 300 acres. At its peak, Brad-
ford had a total of 1,500 straw-
berry acres across the whole
county. (One source says there
were closer to 2,500 acres total at
Bradford's height).
Around 1920,just as the Brad-
ford berry industry was at its

BERRIES
Continued from 3A

piak, Bradford was wrapped up
irl a terrible civil row and at the
eAd of it, the county split in two.
I-alf of the Bradford became
Union County, and now Brad-
ford was even smaller.
IBy about 1930, Plant City had
a Strawberry Festival with a pa-
ride and a Strawberry Queen,
aid it was calling itself "Flori-
di's Strawberry City." Bradford
stll had a sizeable strawberry
industry, though now second
t< Hillsborough. Within a few
years, Union County, never
niuch for strawberries, would
hive prisons.
SAround the time Plant City
went into production in the late
l 90s, strawberries were also be-
ing grown in Louisiana, and then
tqe Carolinas.
SFay Durban, son of Ed Durban,
strawberry grower in Lawtey in
the 1950s and 1960s, downplays
any notion of cut-throat competi-
tion between the Bradford grow-
ers and competitors elsewhere.
"Being farther south, Plant
4ity berries usually hit the mar-
ket first," Durban said. "And
about the time their season ended,
the Bradford season kicked in."
(this is true: even Plant City's
Strawberry Festival runs in Feb-
rdary and March.) The markets
i; more northern climates, es-
pecially the Carolinas, followed
after Florida's season had ended
apd summer had arrived.
SStill,the March 21,1924,Tele-
graph revealed that bad years for
Plant City berries were good
years for Bradford. The Tele-
gaph said Hillsborough receipts
were lighter than expected since
much of the Plant City crop had
been damaged by some torrential
rnns Starke had largely escaped.
SIn April, the Telegraph added,
"'lant City growers were plow-
ing up their strawberries to plant
other crops--they were getting
only about 40 cents a quart (with
variationss of 26 to 54 cents a
quart)."
SIn April 1927, about sev-
en months after the great
Okeechobee Hurricane, the Tele-
graph reported that "the price of
Bradford berries was high due to
the limited quantity of strawber-
ries coming in and to ;the-inva-
sion of the Starke platform by
Plant City and Lawtey buyers
Who forced the prices as high as
$13 for their beds (flats). Just a
few days earlier the Starke beds
had gone as low as $5 per bed."
By 1950, California had be-
come the largest strawberry pro-
ducer in the U.S., and the U.S.
had become the biggest straw-
berry producer in the.world.
According to Ted Campbell,
executive director of the Florida
Strawberry Growers Association
in Hillsborough, it is now foreign
imports that are giving Plant City
berry growers fits.
"This year, we have a good
crop with lots of berries and
blooms, if we can just make it
profitable," he said several weeks
ago. "The problem is Mexico.
Their harvest season almost ex-
actly matches ours, and there is a
flood of Mexican product on the
market."
However, according to FAO-
STAT data, in 2012 some ob-
servers estimate China's straw-
berry production to be 1.7 times
that of the U.S. The U.S. is still
tops in fresh production and ex-
port; but China is larger in frozen
berries and is now the largest ex-
porter of fresh and frozen berries
to a once-crucial American mar-
ket: Japan.
"The growers here in Hillsbor-
ough don't deal in frozen prod-
uct," Campbell said. "We are
strictly fresh berry producers."

Who made money?
In the late 1800s, one buyer


in Chicago paid $10 for the first
quart of prime Bradford County
strawberries, without batting an
eye. It was a ceremonial pur-
chase, the first of the season, but
at any rate, he knew he'd get his
money back selling berries to
Chicago's society ladies and the
carriage trade at that or any other
price. For subsequent purchases
he would pay far less for a quart.
In the 1888 Telegraph's local
news, it said, "Lawtey shipped
last week about 800 bushels of
strawberries for Northern cit-
ies, and Starke probably half as
many. At .current prices those
would bring back in the county
at least $8,400."
That would be $10.50 a bushel
to the growers or somewhere
around 35 to 44 cents per quart,
17 to 22 cents per pint.
"Probably 300 persons, old and
young, are now engaged in pick-
ing the strawberry crop here, re-
ceiving from 75 cents to $1 a day,
for their labor," the Telegraph
said. "Of course, a great many
of those are very young and their
earnings are small. Many of them
are children of the farmers, who
have come in from points even
12 or 15 miles distant and rented
rooms or houses for the season.
They receive 2 cents a quart and
their humble earnings materially
assist their paternal treasury, to
which the amount of $1 is a mat-
ter of great pith and moment."
But the writer also reminded
Bradford readers. "On the other
hand, of course, a great many
shipments have come to grief." It
wasn't unheard of at that time for
a railroad car to get sidetracked,
or rerouted. By the time berries
arrived at their destination, they
were black, fermented and fly-
ridden. A buyer or a grower's
consigned shipment brought him
nothing.
Who was making money on
strawberries in 1888? We can
safely deduce it was (some-
times) the grower, the person the
grower bought his original berry
plants from, anyone the grower
paid to help cultivate the field,
possibly the man who owned the
local seed and feed store, and the
people who came to pick the ber-
ries for 2 cents a quart.
Then there were the men,
women and families who made
a little extra money renting out
their spare bedroom during
strawberry season. Don't forget
the agents doing the buying or
taking crops on consignment, the
railroad company, the big ticket
brokers in distant cities and the
grocers in Chicag6 and else-
where who owned the northern
supermarkets and everyone who
worked for them.
There were others. An ad in
that first 1888 edition touted
"The Best Fertilizer" and it was
the hottest thing going at the
time. Presumably writing from
Starke, A.I. Scott, M.D. said, "I
have tried your new fertilizer on
my strawberry plants here, and I
am astonished at the result and
am glad to say it does even more
than I had believed it would....
Please send me ten (10) pounds
of your new fertilizer at your ear-
liest convenience. I shall use it
on my grove."
And an ad in an 1890 Tele-
graph read, "Strawberry crates,
cups and nails. Prices the lowest,
Hall's Department Store."
So we can add to our list of
Bradford strawberry industry
beneficiaries the fertilizer indus-
try, makers of cups and nails,
local hardware stores, and, of
course, the Telegraph which got
money for that ad.
A Telegraph item in April
1914 noted that the industry was
not only growing, it was getting
organized. "Business is boom-
ing. ... The Growers' Associa-
tion is working overtime." Agent
T.J. Griffin and Express Agent
A.P. Hoffman had shipped 16
(railroad) carloads during the
past week, with nearly 3,000


bushels.
By the 1920s, what had
once been a happy local
Bradford County agricul-
tural market niche had long
since become an every-
man-for-himself, dog-eat-
dog business with agents, a
growers association, loom-
ing competition from other
markets around the U.S.,
and quarrels with railroad
barons over the price of
hauling.
According to one Tele-
graph item, "one buyer ac-
cused others of buying up
berries then sharing with
other (select) buyers to let
them fill their orders as pric-
es went up to 45 cents per
quart." An
Durban remembers two so
brothers, a decade or so lat-
er, one a major strawberry
grower, the other a buyer. The
two Lawtey brothers got into a
tangle over what the grower got
paid.
"You have stolen my berries,"
the grower told his brother. "I
have given you top dollar," the
other man said.
"All those buyers were in ca-
hoots with each other," Durban
said.
Perhaps, but local growers
may not have been so quick to
recognize that buyers were also
watching price point pressures at
the other end of the supply chain,
when housewives were buying
berries at local northern super-
markets. And there were still
plenty of links in the chain along
the way who had to cover their
costs as well.
Florida reached its largest
strawberry acreage in 1933 with
about 12,000 acres (of which
Bradford County had around'
1,500).
Durban commented that when
he was first exposed to the Law-
tey strawberry industry in the
early 1940s, he recalled that
Lawtey growers were paying the
people who picked their berries 2
to 3 cents per quart.
That was exactly the same
amount the Telegraph stated
was paid for picking in 1888,
60 years earlier. Depending on
climatic conditions and market
forces, in some cases the return
to the growers on a quart of ber-
ries had. increased from 30 to 50
to 100 percent during the same
period. It was only the pickers
whose pay scale had stagnated.

War
Around the end of the 1930s,
Telegraph publisher and editor
Eugene Matthews Jr. had for
over a year used a statement per-
tinent to modern newspapers for
his masthead. He quoted a Ger-
man writer, and the masthead
read, "We must quietly hear both
sides-Goethe." The last time the
quote was used was in the March
22, 1940 edition. Just a week
or two earlier, Adolf Hitler met
Benito Mussolini in the Alps to
form an alliance against France
and the United Kingdom.
The very next week, March
29, the new masthead of the
Bradford County Telegraph fea-
tured the credo "The Home of
the Sweetest Strawberries this
Side of Heaven." The masthead
came complete with clusters of
strawberries on both sides. By
April 5, that had been shortened
to "Sweetest strawberries this
side of heaven."
By all appearances, the paper
loved the local strawberry indus-
try. A member of the board of
the Starke Bank, publisher Mat-
thews and his father had encour-
aged loans to farmers. Since its
beginnings, like clockwork, the
newspaper had published at the
end of March and certainly in
April weekly or bi-weekly re-
ports on berry crops, sales, pric-
es and shipments.
Eventually the Telegraph in-

cluded information on a straw-
berry auction, which kept local
sales a bit more competitive,
transparent and aboveboard.
Nevertheless, the Bradford
growers were gloomy. One April
1940 edition of the paper said
6,000 flats had been shipped the
prior week but only 1,200 in the
past six days. Starke and Law-
tey combined had taken in only
$5,112. Still, estimated figures
for the Bradford County season
stood at 1,213,848 pints with a
return of about $152,000.
The same paper ran an ar-
ticle under the headline "Mar-
ket Manager lists vegetables in
daily demand in huge quantifies
at Camp." It said an 18,000-man
unit at Camp Blanding ate 343
pints of strawberries but 386
hampers of squash and 345 ham-
pers of various beans every 15
days. Given a lack of supply in
the area, the army was forced to
buy elsewhere, but would have
preferred to buy local.
An April 3, 1942, front-page
story said Starke and Lawtey
berry growers had a late season
due to cold weather. Prices were
$4.50 to $4.75 per crate, some
went up to $6 per crate. "Most
of the sales this year will be cash
sales to truckers," the article
said. "(Consignment) selling has
been almost abandoned in re-
cent years, although a number of
growers claim that shipping on
consignment is more profitable


than selling (to truckers)."
But the real story in strawber-
ries during the war years was
that, suddenly, local labor could
do better elsewhere.
"When the war came on," Dur-
ban said, "there were more than
500 strawberry farmers in the
county, but suddenly everybody
called themselves carpenters,
and it was just sort of a boom.
I think they built thousands of
buildings out at Camp Bland-
ing in 90 days. Farmers just quit
farming because they couldn't
get anybody to help them."
As World War II slogged on,
the first April edition in 1943
had a berry story on the front
page, but below the fold. "Berry
Season Will be Late," it said.
The headline was the War Fund
Drive.
Farmers were urged to take
their eggs into the State Farm-
ers' Market at Starke to be used
by the armed forces. "The Army
is asking for berries right now,
if we could just get them." Mr.
L. M. White said. "And if any-
body has any cabbage, we would
like to know about it. We can't
get half enough to meet the de-
mands."
By April 4, 1944, even "The
Sweetest Strawberries this side
of heaven" in a box was gone
from the Telegraph's masthead.
In 1945, an April headline
read, "Dry Weather K.O.'s Ber-
ries, Damages Crops." Prices


ranged at $8.28 per crate. Yield-
was t:1he smallest anyone alive
then had ever experienced.
In 11946, the war was over.
Even Bradford strawberries re-
spondled; the season grossed al--
most .~500,000, in spite of small
acreagLe. The Telegraph called
that si:ason one of the best on re-
cord.
"With almost half a mil-
lion dollars already swell-
ing the bank accounts of
Bradlford County growers,
the strawberry industry here has
once more entered the realm of
'big business' after suffering
near-ieclipse during the war years
when many farmers attracted-
by high wages and discouraged
by the: lack of competent .help,
traded their harrows for a time
card at Camp Blanding. ... The
average price has been $9.90 per
crate,, a far cry from the 'dollar-
and-your-crate-back' days of
pre-wair seasons," the paper said.
The county's berry acreage;
was expected to triple the fol-
lowing year. However, the 1947
season was dampened by rain
and cold. Louisiana berries hit
the nuirket just as Bradford ber-
ries were about ready to pick.
By then, there were less than
300 acres of strawberries grown
in Braidford, with berries getting
$6 and $7 per crate and $8.50 the
highest for the season. Carolina

represents a significant increase,
utilizing more than $4 billion in
state new revenue.
In addition to proposed new
money for state employees-the
first raise in seven years-public
education receives more than
$1 billion more. Most of it is

S Poinset-
." tias, which were introduced by the U.S.
;:'- ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett,
'. in 1825, are tropical plants. Conse-
quently, freeze damage is a problem in
Or .tDA our area. Plants incorporated into the
Extenon" landscape should be pruned to a height
of 12 to 18 inches after the danger of frost is
past or to living tissue if they have been dam-
aged by cold.
My poinsettias are often killed to the ground
during winter. They regrow in the spring, reach-
ing heights of over 6 feet before they flower
again. Tall plants may become leggy and unat-
tractive, so it's a good idea to prune them regu-
larly during the growing season. This may be
done once a month, leaving four leaves on each
shoot. Pruning should be discontinued after
September 10. Flower buds will begin to devel-
op in October. Delay or disruption of flowering
will occur if fall temperatures are too warm or
too cold.


for raises, but there is pressure
to make at least' a portion of
the increase merit based. There
is money to pay for districts
with rising enrollment and
modernize technology. There is
also millions more for classroom
supplies, class size management
and school safety.
Based on the House's
proposal, more than 25 percent
of the state budget is spent on
education. More than 18 percent
goes to prekindergarten-12
education., That would push per
student funding up nearly $400
to $6,781.61.
The chambers will have to
smooth over differences in their
budgets and agree on one plan to
send to the governor. The Senate
plan includes more new honey


for education, but the House plan
sets aside more of its new money
for pay raises.
The state is also working on
refining requirements for teacher
evaluations by making sure
teachers are evaluated only on
the students they actually teach
instead of test score expectations
applied across the board.

This month, Alligator Creek Garden Club shows its appreciation to Dianne
,Rathbun at 134 E. South St. for the amazing job she has done to showcase what
':beauty can be achieved with a lot of loving care, some imagination, just a little
space and a bright green thumb. Rathbun moved into the home in the spring
of 2009, cleaned out the old shrubs and started doing her magic. Her abundant
display of hanging plants, potted plants and a raised garden planted with canna
lilies, day lilies, gardenias and amaryllis, to name a few, gives a whimsical addition
+to the front of her home and her neighborhood for everyone to enjoy.

Fraud warning:
Protect
yourself and

benefits
Elder citizens are frequent
targets of Medicare schemes,
including the latest identity theft
scheme. Recently, several Medi-
care beneficiaries have received
phone calls from individuals de-
claring to be from the "Health and
Welfare Department" informing
them that a new Medicare card
will soon be issued to them. Ben-
eficiaries are then asked to verify
some personal information, in-
cluding their Medicare number,
address, birth date and banking
information. Seniors, and those
who care for them, should know
that the true goal of these calls is
identity theft.
Medicare, and its authorized
agents like the Florida Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs' SHINE

of Elders) Program, will not

BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2013


MORE
Continued from 4A

markets were getting $13 per
crate. (Shipping costs from the
Carolinas to crucial northern cit-
ies were also much lower.)

What killed Bradford's
strawberry industry?


Nothing killed the Bradfoi
strawberry industry; it is sti
alive, for now at least, but as sc
cial workers might describe a
otherwise unexplainable cas
over the long haul it had
failed to thrive.
Hillsborough County was
ascendant by then, and the
war was just another of sev-
eral one-two punches the
local industry took. The de-
pression was another, includ-
ing the failure of The Bank
of Starke that regularly made
loans to farmers to support


rd
ill
o-
an
e,


their crops.
By 1950, front-page
strawberry stories in April
editions of the Telegraph
were no longer automatic,
although many years they
did appear.
Sam McGarvey's April 7,
1950, "Farmer's Diary" col-
,umn said, "Berries are com-
ing back strong now. ... We J
were told that you could get
a crate every other day from E
plants. Well, maybe you can.
Maybe you can get $1,000 from
an acre. We think the answer is
an expert grower can, but we are
far from being experts. ... We'll
just have to do the best we can."
In the April 6, 1956, edition,
the paper noted that rain was
needed to salvage potato crops in
Brooker and that gas kills grass
in seedbeds. But it was the first
week of April and there was not
one news story about strawber-
ries.
Lovetts Grocery, however,
was running a special. Shoppers
could purchase any five-item
combination of strawberries,
peaches or fruit turnovers for 99
cents-all of them frozen. "Mix
'Em up," the ad said.
During the 1960s there were a
few attempts to return Bradford's


strawberry industry to its former
glory. Florida Commissioner of
Agriculture and Starke native
Doyle Conner personally con-
tacted executives of major su-
permarket chains to market more
local berries. Conner noted that
strawberry prices and the morale
of growers had reached a low
point; berry wholesale prices had
plunged below actual production
costs, he said.
A Starke native, Gov. Char-
ley Johns fried to help promote
Bradford berries, too, with a jun-
ket to Washington. That year's
Bradford Strawberry Queen was


























Berryliclous at the 2012 festival]
In April 1968, the paper noted,
S. .







A.








errylcious at the 2012 festival

shown in the Telegraph putting af
local berry into the mouth of an
Irish dignitary.
In April 1968, the paper noted
that a rough berry season was
closing. But the Oct. 3 edition
that year was the first edition af-
ter Matthews made a changeover
from letterpress to offset print-
ing. The masthead went back to
Old English lettering, but with a
more contemporary layout and
format.
There was also a change in the
masthead, Matthews wrote to the
readers, "Recognition has been
given to Bradford County's chief
claim to fame-The Sweetest
Strawberries this Side of Heav-
en!'


Local farmers carry
on tradition
Recently, Buddy Norman of
Norman's Produce said he and
about five other people in the
county still raise strawberries,
Each of them operates in smaller
or larger arenas, as they choose.
Norman has five acres.
According to the county ex-
tension office, also growing ber-
ries in Bradford County are Rod
Crawford, Fred and Julia Pendar-
vis and Tommy King. All of the
Bradford growers combined
have no more than 25 acres in
strawberries, Norman said.
Norman does not ship ber-
ries, per se, though his father
. did and his grandfather be-
fore him. During the 1970s,
Norman and his brother were
among those who bought
their own truck and shipped
their strawberries to northern
markets in New York and
elsewhere.
Now though, Norman sells
most of his berries at his own
two stands and makes short
hauls to small outdoor mar-
kets and other stands mostly
in North Florida.
"You can't get to the big
buyers," he said, meaning
buyers like Publix or Winn-
Dixie or other supermarkets.
"If you can't guarantee that
you'll supply 600 or 6,000
i. flats on such and such a day,
they don't want to talk to
you."
So Buddy Norman sells his
berries himself, without agents
or buyers from up north, with-
out a railroad or truckers or even
without refrigerated trucks. A
few weeks ago, he was asking
$3 for a pint of berries; $5 for
a quart, and $10 for a flat or 12
pints.
A recent release from the
Florida Strawberry Growers As-
sociation estimated the costs of
production of Florida strawber-
ries at $14,000 per acre.
"These' flats actually have
about 14 pints of berries in
them," Norman said, "because
we top them off with the biggest,
nicest berries we have. Aren't
those beautiful?"
And they were.

Supporting the fight

with smiles, tears
It was 18 hours of games, themed laps and various other
fun activities, but it was also a time of reflection on how
devastating cancer can be and how it has touched so many lives.
A mixture of emotions best describes the American
Cancer Society's Relay for Life fundraisers, but in the
end, it's all about raising money to assist those with cancer
and to fund research in hopes of one day finding a cure.
r The annual event in Bradford County, which partnered with
Union County this year, continues to be successful. Record-
breaking totals are usually the norm year after year, and this year's
event, which was held April 12-13 at the Bradford High School
track, was no exception. More than $60,000 has been raised so far,
with more money coming in and several more fundraising events
planned in .the near future.
Members of Bradford and Union counties certainly hit it out of
the park in supporting this year's Relay theme: "Slug Out Cancer."

for someone to post their bail as part of the Starke Police Department's Relay
fundraiser.

Sequestrian
cuts, cancer-
care impact
Dear Editor:
On April 1, 2013, the
Automatic Spending Cuts
(sequestration cuts) were made
effective with the potential of
impacting cancer care in America
beyond what most people can
even imagine. The government
permitted the sequester cuts to be
enacted for physicians' services
in all specialties. In addition, it
inappropriately allowed a severe
reduction to chemotherapy
coverage for Medicare patients
overnight.
Today, millions of Americans
are diagnosed and treated for
cancer, either with curative or
palliative intent. Approximately
80-85% of such patients are
treated in community cancer
clinics throughout the United
States and approximately 60%-
65% of all cancer patients
currently rely on Medicare for
their coverage.
Many oncology practices in the
United States (more than 1000
small and mid-size businesses)
have reported severe financial
constraints, declared bankruptcy,
or have joined larger groups or
hospital staff in 2012, due to a
series of ill-advised Medicare
reimbursement adjustments.
Moreover, many treatments
provided at community cancer
centers or clinics today are not


being reimbursed at appropriate
levels; many life-saving and
palliative medications are being
reimbursed significantly below
of the cost of acquisition, thereby
creating an untenable situation
for these practices.
Because smaller community
practices can no longer
afford these very expensive
chemotherapy drugs, they are
being forced to send many
Medicare patients to be treated
elsewhere, i.e., hospital facilities
or a clinic far away from a
patient's home - creating a
severe problem related to access
to care, since most treatments
are rendered as an outpatient,.
Not only could access to care
be compromised, but there
may be a very sharp increase
in the costs related to cancer
treatment since such therapies
will be given at hospital-based
facilities, which are inherently
more expensive than outpatient
community settings. In addition,
patients may have to travel a
significant distance to large
hospital facilities to receive
chemotherapy, sometimes on
a daily basis, incurring higher
expenses for transportation,
lodging and possibly higher co-
payments.
Hopefully, the sequestration
impact can be reversed. If the
government does not intervene
soon, there will be noteworthy
disruption of community
cancer care in America.
The Community Oncology
Alliance (COA) website, www.
communityoncology.prg,
strongly advocates for a review
of this matter. COA is a nonprofit
organization dedicated solely to
community oncology with the
mission to protect and foster the
community oncology delivery
system in The United States.


I would urge readers to please
take immediate action by calling
their legislators and by signing
the White House petition to stop
sequestration cuts for cancer
drugs. Contact information can
be found on the Florida Cancer
Specialists website: www.
FLCancer.com. The last thing
patients, friends, loved ones and
family members need is more
hardship when dealing with
cancer.
Sincerely,
Lucio Gordan, MD., Florida
Cancer Specialists
Gainesville

Agreed: More
participation
is needed
in Lawtey
Dear Editor:
I totally agree. We need more
participation from the local
citizens of Lawtey. They have
more value than they have been
led to believe.
As a former mayor/city


councilman, I have had the
opportunity to hear from the
people of Lawtey, many of those
that you refer to as being afraid
of retaliation from those in power
and from those in the audience
who will speak for those in
power to bully anyone that is not
going to agree with an issue that
they feel strongly about.
I will apologize to you for my
laughter, and at no time did I
try to make it a bully statement,
nor to "mock" you for your
question concerning only one
inspection having been done
on the refurbished recreation
building. Before being elected
to office, I spent many years
on the recreation committee
and know of all the struggles
we had in getting that building
completed, and that consisted
of many county inspections
prior to completion. Again, my
sincere apology because being
the person who was very upset
at the actions of your spouse at
the,meeting prior to this, when
she did mock a very upset citizen
with valid concerns, I should

Union's Keller, Mabrey to play at Limestone


Dylan Clark (left) and Chandler Mann sign their
letters of Intent to play football at Campbellsville and
LaGrange.

Clark, Mann accept

Campbellsville,

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
In a way, Union County High
School seniors Dylan Clark and
Chandler Mann are similar in
that when it came to football,
they had a mindset of what they
wanted to do, aid they did it.
Now, the two have another
thing in common-they will
get the chance to play at the
next level, with Clark signing
with Campbellsville (Ky.)
University and Mann signing
with LaGrange (Ga.) College
during an April 12 ceremony in
the UCHS auditorium.
"I'm excited," Mann said.
"I'm happy because all the hard
work's paid off. Everything that
I've been practicing for and
dreaming of, it's all coming
together, so it's a great feeling."
Clark said, "I'm truly blessed.
I couldn't have done it without
my teammates, my family, my
coaches and everybody who
supported me. It's something
I've always wanted to do my
entire life."
The determination to play and
be a contributor was so great that
Clark, who was vying to play
quarterback at UCHS, made a
position switch to wide receiver/


LETTER

never have lowered myself to
that level.
tIdo not know of the education
levels of other members in the
audience, but I believe no matter
what your education level, all
persons have intelligence, and as
for my Jewish neighbor, I do not
understand why you would not
think for a moment that he is not
intelligent enough to be a citizen
of this town, county or country.
Now, is retaliation real? Take
the case where a city councilman
made the statement in an open
council meeting that a citizen
would not have any road service
on a city street. Now, I do admit
that when I was on the council,
I did vote no to spending citizen
monies on pay raises when most
of the county/country had not
seen pay increases in years. I
voted no on a garbage tax/fee
put upon the citizens for the very
same reasons these were all in the
street department. A water main
broke on that street and poured
water for almost six months
before it was fixed, costing the
city how much money? I don't
think you have heard this citizen
bemoaning this action. I stood
by my votes then, and I still: do.
And yes, some of us do think
that this is "MY CITY," and we
do everything we can to help, no
matter what backlash we might
receive.

city councilman

season.
"I was ready to do whatever
it took to help my team win,"
he said. "Now, I'm receiving the
benefits from that."
Clark said catching the ball
was a talent he didn't know he
had, but he's now reached the
point where he's confident in his
ability in regard to that talent.
He said he needed to continue
to work .on his quickness and
coming off the line of scrimmage
after the snap, but added, "The
catching comes pretty natural to
me."
Union head coach Ronny
Pruitt said what Campbellsville
is getting in Clark is an ultra
competitor who works hard and
wants to be the go-to guy.

Regional News/Sports Editor
Jerry Keller said the people in
Gaffney, S.C., are about to learn
where Union County is.
Keller and fellow Union
County High School senior
Walter Mabrey will both be
attending Gaffney's Limestone
College on football scholarships.
"It's a great feeling to be
given the opportunity to play
something you love (and) to get
four more years of school and an
education," Keller said following
an April 12 signing ceremony in
the UCHS auditorium.
Both players were thankful for
the opportunity, but for Mabrey,
it is a chance to continue on a
path of refocused commitment.
Mabrey said he has "come a
long way," having to take care of
things in his life on and off the
field over the last three years.
Becoming a father this past
summer helped him set some
priorities in life.
Calling himself "blessed,"
Mabrey said he feels Limestone,
a private college, is the place
where he can continue to push
himself to succeed.
"I'm used to being in a small
place, so I want to go somewhere
where I'll be able to focus and
learn and get a great education,"
he said.
Union head coach Ronny
Pruitt said when he first arrived
at UCHS, people told him that
grades and behavioral issues
would prevent Mabrey from
being a consistent contributor
on the field. Pruitt, though, saw
Mabrey dedicate himself to
making life changes, and they're

not temporary.
"It's a way of life for him
now," Pruitt said. "That's just a
testament to his character."
When Mabrey was asked
about what improvements he
was looking forward to making
at the collegiate level, his first
answers had nothing to do with
football.
"I want to improve in the
classroom a lot," he said. "I
want to be able to graduate from
college with a great education.
"I just want to improve as a
person."
Mabrey was a standout
running back who also played
linebacker. He said he will play
strong safety at Limestone.
It doesn't matter what side of
the ball he plays on, he said.
"I just wanted the chance to
play college football," Mabrey
said.
Pruitt said Mabrey is a
versatile athlete who can play
two to three positions on the
defensive side of the ball alone.

Mabrey, though, brings more
than athletic ability to the field.
Pruitt said Mabrey brings an
intelligence to the field that he
uses to his advantage.
"He's a lot of time what we call
a thief on the field," Pruitt said,
alluding to Mabrey's ability to
sit back and let an offense make
the first move before creating

Mabrey didn't get a lot
of opportunities to shine on
the defensive side of the ball
because of how vital he was to
the Tigers' offense, Pruitt said.
However, the coach has no
doubt Limestone is getting a
playmaker.
"He's going to shine for
them," Pruitt said. "They're
going to get a great player."
Limestone will get a Union
County player on the offensive
side of the ball in Keller, a
lineman. Pruitt said Keller brings

In May 1943, he'enlisted in the
U.S. Navy, where he served on the
USS Intrepid as a gun emplacement
captain. "The Fighting I" has one
of 'the most distinguished service
records of any Navy ship seeing
action in the Pacific Theater dur-
ing.World War II. In 1947, George
was;recruited by the government of
the Dominican Republic to provide
trai ing to their military on proper
methods to outfit their warplanes.
After returning from his military-
related ventures, he attended the
UniVersity of Miami before enter-
ing a varied and successful business
career.
George met his lovely wife of
40 years, "Miss Pat," while he
was the advertising manager of the
Clatghton Theater chain in Miami.
In 1953, George and Pat owned and
operated Shook's Restaurant, a pop-
ular, local eatery in Boynton Beach.
After building the restaurant into a
profitable business, they sold it, and
George made a career change. Real-
izing his salesmanship abilities, he
went to work for Keller Industries
Inc.: in 1955. He held a number of
positions of increasing responsi-
bilities. until being promoted to vice
president in 1965.
At age 42, George suffered a
heart attack and realized a less
stressful pace might be a better
option. Shortly thereafter, he pur-
chased a 600~-cre cattle farm in Flo-
rahdme, where his father and broth-
er relocated to join him on his new
endeavor. Privately-owned farming
was a hard way to make a living, but
a great way to get lifelong experi-
ence. As a result of this experience,
andi learning that farming meant
constant repairing of one thing or
another, George realized there was
a great opportunity to establish a
manufacturing corporation, Bolden
Industries Inc., that specialized in
the fabrication of panel and chain-
linki farm gates. As it turned out,
the 'gate business became a good
one, and the farm was sold in 1969,
and the manufacturing facility was
moved to Melrose.
George operated the factory until
he retired in 1986. Among George's
pleasures was the love of flying,
hunting and raising horses. Sonny,
one of his favorite horses, was a
champion at the World Champion-
ship of Barrel Racing Futurity in
1998.
Along with his hobbies,.George
was an active member of the Ma-
sonic Lodge for over 45 years. He
served as an officer in several ca-
pacities, including two terms as
Worshipful Master of the Melrose
Masonic Lodge. After presiding as
Worshipful Master, he was invited
to membership in the honor group
of York Rite Masons and named a
Knight of the York Cross ofHonor.
George was also a member of the
Morocco Temple Shrine and espe-
cially enjoyed participating in their
parade events.
George was preceded in death by:
his wife, Pat; parents Jerry and Mat-
tie Lou; and three brothers, Hank,


June and Bob.
George leaves behind his loving
family: daughter Carolyn (Mike)
Watson of Raleigh, N.C.; son Don-
ny (Carla) Bolden of Debary; sister
Iva (Demp) Smith of Starke; grand-
children Scott, Stephen, Sarah and
Hannah; and nieces, nephews and
numerous other relatives.
Services will be held Friday,
April 19, at 10:30 a.m. at Eliam
Baptist Church in Melrose, with
burial following at Eliam Cemetery.
All are invited to a lunch hosted
by friends and church members at
Eliam Baptist Church immediately
after the services.

nations may be made to the George

To Stella "My Rainbow"
9/11/1940-4/7/2013
Slow death is a terrible
thing to see. It tears you
up and tears you down.
It's painful to see and
painful to be. You try hard
to think back to a better
time, but death brings you
back to the present.
Rainbows come and go
but the memories of them
remains. Life is like a
rainbow, illusionary,
temporary, but not the
memory, that's forever.
Sweetheart You were my
Rainbow at sunset, you
were strong and I was
weak I cried but little did
you know. Some say you
were piquant, you were
but they didn't know what
I saw. Beneath the spice
was a such passion for
life. I will miss your
passion, I will miss My
Rainbow, but not the
memory of that Rainbow,
not the memory of you. As
I walk on the trail of life
maybe even my last walk
and I feel a breeze across
my face I will know it's
you giving me a kiss and
that you're waiting, so
when Ifinally take my last
short walk I'll be looking
for my Rainbow. I miss
you so very, very much. I
will not look for you at
some grave, I know
you're not there, but here
in my heart. You are the
diamond in my heart and
the gentle rain on a
summer night,
Love Bob

Well, we have reached 19
years without your smile,
your wit, your
intelligence, and most of
all your love. It seems like
the years are passing
faster and faster and yet
the days, hours, minutes,
and seconds go so slow
without you. I wish I
could express in words
how much you are
missed, but words are so
inadequate and feelings
are just that, feelings, not
words.
Your old black truck is
still running, and every
time it comes in the yard,
I smile thinking about you
and your lab, Pepper,
coming home. Your boat
still sets under the boat
shelter, and it also makes
me smile thinking of the
many hours you worked
on it in the carport. I
could go on and on, but
the smile on my face
would soon turn to tears.
Your kids, grandchildren
and great-grandchildren
are doing great and you
would be so proud of
them. Your memory is
shared with them and I
know you are watching
over each one. We love
and miss you and I know
the day will come when
we will see you again.
Love,

Jason Hall, with a lot of help from Bradley, displays
the aggregate-weight winners at the Sampson Lake
open tournament on April 11.


Fishing report,
Letroy Guion,
Hospice bass
tournament
Summer continues to be more
apparent as the weather warms,
and the fish bite takes notice. The
bass spawn in southern waters
appears to be waning, but
continues, though not as strong
in the surrounding area. We
riatched the first winter crappie
bite with the robin's arrival. We
tagged the shellcracker bite with
the whippoorwill, and this week
Bob McNally with the Florida
Times-Union says the bluegill
bite will escalate to a peak that
should correlate with the mayfly
hatch in late April and May...


Freshwater fishing
The bass spawn seems to be
slowing somewhat and should
show further decline after the
April 25 full moon.
Channel cats are currently a
good bet on Black Creek and the
St. Johns, and the shellcracker
bite on Lake Lochloosa is going
strong.
Both should peak with the
next full moon, and the bluegill
bite should pick up as those
relax somewhat.
Remember, the Kingsley
Lake cycle is not consistent with
the other surrounding lakes and
should lag those.
The Lake Butler Bass Club
held a tournament on Hampton
Lake on April 6. Tournament
winners were Charlie Hobson
.and.-Dewayne Ellis. The two
solid..chunks shown in the
accompanying photo totaled
10.21 pounds, with the big one
weighing 5.3 pounds.
The Bald Eagle Bait and
Tackle bass tournament on April
10 turned in some good results,


with Chris Kadlec and Brooks
Morrell taking the aggregate
weight total and big fish. Kadlec
is shown in the accompanying
photo displaying the big bass
with a little help from a family
member.
The weights were somewhat.
light, but Jason and Bradley Hall
were able to land enough to win
the aggregate weight trophy at
the April 11 Sampson Lake open
bass tournament.

Saltwater fishing
The spring runs on both east
and west coasts seem to be hot
and heavy. Sheepshead are
readily available near jetties,
pier columns and shore reefs.
Whitings are very productive
on the east coast beaches.
The Spanish mackerel run
appears to be underway on both
coasts, but the black drum bite
is slowing.
The cobia, king mackerel and
tarpon have not yet caught on.

is also heating up.

Letroy Guion
Joey Tyson was preparing
to weigh the bass harvest from
his weekly Bald Eagle Bait
and Tackle bass tournament on
April 10 as a boat with three
fishermen pulled into the Little
Santa Fe boat launch. Watching
as the boat pulled in, Tyson said,
"Letroy Guion, over 300 pounds,
played football for Starke, plays
now for the Minnesota Vikings,
and he loves his fishing."
After loading his boat, Guion
strolled over to the weighing
table with a nice channel catfish
that was probably a product of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
stocking program. With a broad
grin, he approached Tyson,
shook his hand and asked if he
would weigh his fish. The catfish
went over 7 pounds, and Guion
ended the ongoing conversation
by saying, "You know I love my
fishing."
Guion is a product of Bradford
County who has done well and
is enjoying life. He recently
attributed much of his success to
his parents, Connie and Robert.
Guion is the oldest of five
children in his family, and he has
a daughter, Zharianna.
Competing against some of
the toughest competition in
the NFL at Minnesota, he has
doubled his playing time in the
last two years and turned in some
good statistics, which include
two sacks and one blocked field
goal.
Guion enjoys hunting and
fishing in Minnesota also and has
participated in the Governor's
Fishing Opener events for 2009
and 2010, teaching young kids
to fish. He also expresses an
interest in pursuing a career as a
game warden after football.


We wish Guion well in
football as well as in hunting
and fishing.

Bradford's Allen signs with FAU


SBY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor'

The first offer Bradford High
School senior Murphy Allen
received from a Division I school
came from one in his home state,
ard to him, that school-Florida
Alantic University -represents
the best fit for him as he gets the
opportunity to continue playing
football after high school.
1'" just feel real blessed on
being able to play at the Division
I level and am really excited
about it," said Allen, who is an
offensive lineman. "I'm excited
about the fact of going in and
competing for a starting job as a
freshman, too."
:Allen has been competing in
camps to develop his skills as a
lohg snapper. In fact, he is the top-
rahked Rubio Long Snapping-
N.ke prospect in Florida.
Bradford head coach Steve
Reynolds said Florida Atlantic is

stid. "That's why Jerry got a
scholarship."
!Keller is one of those players
everyone likes to be around,


expecting Allen to compete for a
starting job right off the bat.
"I'm very excited for him,"
Reynolds said. "It's something
he's been going to camps for
and working for in his four-year
career. He lettered his freshman
year based on being a long
snapper.
"It's good to see a kid get
rewarded for his work."
Reynolds said the long-
snapping camps Allen has
attended have helped develop a
skill Allen already possessed.
"He can naturally be a good
long snapper," Reynolds said,
"but as he's perfected his craft
and as he's worked on it and
toiled at it, he's now become an
elite-level snapper."
Reynold said the camps also
helped schools become aware
of Allen. Allen said ever since
he began participating in camps
approximately a year and a half
ago, "schools have been coming


Pruitt said. He has a sense of
humor that brings teammates
together, but when it's time to
work, he motivates those around
him to get the job done.
"He's one of those charismatic
kids," Pruitt said. "You like to
-have him around, and everybody
likes to be around him. He makes
the game fun to coach and fun to
play."

steadily."
Allen said he had interest from
several sub-Division I schools,
but jumped at the opportunity
to sign with Division I Florida
Atlantic.
Plus, Florida Atlantic just
seemed like an ideal place in
regard to its locale in Boca
Raton.
"It's a perfect distance away,
four and a half hours right
down 95, five minutes from the
beach," Allen said. "It's basically
football in paradise."
Of course, it would be a true
paradise if Alien gets onto the
field right away as a freshman.
Reynolds said the three-year
starter at BHS can do it.
"They're not going to give
anything to him," Reynolds
said. "He has to go in there and
compete at a very high level very
quickly, but I think he can do it.
I think he's got the capability."


Keller seemed confident that
he would feel right at home at
Limestone. He said the people
he met there were welcoming
and made him feel comfortable.
"It seemed like a good place
to be," Keller said.
In a way, though, it is home for
Keller, who is a South Carolina
native.
"I lived there for 13 years," he
said. "I'll be close to some of my
family up there."
SPlus, Keller gets to go to
Limestone with one of his high
school teammates.
"It's great," he said of the
opportunity to go to Limestone
with Mabrey. "You know you're
not alone. You know somebody.
It makes you feel better when
you've got somebody with you."
Both Keller and Mabrey said
they will experience a wide
range of emotions when they
step onto the field for the first
time as college players. They
both said they'll be nervous, but
Keller said he's confident he can
get past that and^'leave it all on
the field."
Mabrey said he knows what
he can do on the field and awaits
the chance to do it,
"I know with my ability I can
do some great things, so I'm
really looking forward to it," he
said.

"Dylan wants to be the game
changer," Pruitt said. "He
practices that way."
Throwing the ball was not a
huge part of the UCHS offense,
so Clark didn't get many
opportunities to catch the ball.
Therefore, Pruitt said he is eager
to see Clark get the chance to

shine in college.
"When he gets up there, and
they start spreading it out, I'm
going to be real happy to see
what he can do," Pruitt said.
There were a few other schools
willing to give Clark the chance
to show what he can do, but he
said Campbellsville seemed to
him the right place to be.
"The moment I went to
Campbellsville, I just really
knew it was a place I wanted to
go," Clark said. "I felt at home
there."
Mann felt the same way
about LaGrange after receiving
interest from approximately 13
schools.
"I went to the campus, and
I just felt like I was at home,"
Mann said. "It was a great fit. I
got along with everybody."
Just as Clark was determined
to get on the field in some way at
UCHS, Mann was determined to
play quarterback. He sat behind

a senior in Austin Harden in
2011 before finally getting the
chance to start last season.
"Chandler could've played
linebacker for us," Pruitt said.
"He could've played running
back for us, but he stuck with
(quarterback), and he found a
college that wanted him at that
position. That's a testament to
what he wanted to do."
Mann said he has heard
people question his abilities as a
quarterback. It will be a driving
force when he gets to LaGrange.
"It's going to be a huge thing
for me whenever I get out there
and actually prove somebody
wrong," he said.
Whether it's on the field or
off, Mann will have success,
Pruitt said. That's a testament to
his work ethic in the classroom
and the values instilled in him
by his parents.
"He's going to be a leader in
life," Pruitt said.

Continued from 1


Convict leasing meant
few prisons were
necessary
In 1877, Florida had to reduce
the debt it incurred during the
Reconstruction Era following
the Civil War. One of the funding
decisions made at the time was
to begin the practice of "leasing"
inmates. Prisoners were leased
to companies that paid the state
for the inmates' services. The
inmates worked for the company
throughout their sentences and
the company was responsible for
providing security, food, medical
care and foi seeing to all the
inmates' needs.

Inmates were leased to
farming operations, road crews,
phosphate mining companies,
turpentine operations,
transportation companies and a
wide variety of others. In 1877,
companies paid the state $26 per
year for each inmate, but that
amount increased significantly
over the next few years to reach
a rate of $150 per year. County
sheriffs received a bonus of $20
for each person arrested and
convicted in their county who
was later leased out by the state.
This system was a two-fold
financial boon to the state it
brought the state funds from the
companies who leased inmates
and it meant the state did not
have to pay for the custody and
care of the inmates who were
convicted.

Leasing led to inmates
being abused
However, many of the
companies who leased inmates
were more concerned with their
financial bottom line than with
the care of the inmates. Abuses
were said to be rampant. Inmates
wore leg irons day and night to
prevent their escape. They were
often beaten. They worked long
hours under difficult conditions
and most received little food
and almost no medical care. It
was said that some sheriffs in
the state arrested people without
cause in order to receive the $20
bonus. Many inmates died and,
since records were not well-
kept, many of them were buried
in unmarked graves without the
knowledge of their families.
Because this practice was still
in full swing in 1913, there was
no need for a large number of
prison facilities to be built.

UCI began as stockade for
old, infirm inmates
There were those inmates
who were considered too old or
infirm to be leased, however.
Companies did not want to pay
good money for an inmate who
might not be able to give them
a good day's work. So in 1913,
an 18,000-acre tract of land in
what was then western Bradford
County was purchased by the
state on the banks of New River
at a cost of $5 per acre. According
to a July 13, 1914, article in the
Bradford County Telegraph,
written months later, the land was
chosen because of the fertile soil
and its geographical location.
Construction began and was
overseen by Capt. D.W. Purvis to
include several buildings, a road
from the facility into the town of
Raiford and a bridge over New
River. The construction was
carried out by inmates, of course,


and the facility housed some 400
during its first year of operation.
The facility also suffered its first
inmate uprising during its first
year. Inmates on the construction
crew barricaded themselves
inside their housing area on Nov.
12, 1914, and refused to go to
work until the governor heard
their complaints. One inmate
died during this incident.

In early days, facility
housed both men and
women
In 1918, the prison
superintendent earned $166.67
per month. The captain earned
$70 per month and foremen on
the construction crews earned
$40-$60 per month. In an era
when few women worked
outside the home, the facility
had one prison matron, listed as
L. Carriger, who earned $65 per
month. Female inmates were
housed in a separate area in the
facility.

By 1919, records show that
the facility employed 40 guards
who earned $35 per month. They
were also provided with housing
and had access to the produce
grown on the farm, meat from
harvested animals, and eggs.
A male inmate kept their yards
clean and a female inmate acted
as cook and housekeeper. The
facility had 4,000 acres under
cultivation, extensive pasture
lands, a garment factory and a
shoe factory.

In 1919, former state Senator
J.S. Blitch was appointed captain
at the facility. Conditions for
the inmates began to improve
as visitation was expanded
and the community became
more involved at the facility.
Community members provided
plays and other entertainments
for the inmates. Blitch went
on to play a major role at the

facility, soon rising to the rank of
superintendent. ,

Tabert death leads to
end of convict leasing
The beginning of the end of
the convict leasing program can
be pinpointed by an incident
that occurred in -1921. A man
named Martin Tabert got on a
freight train without a ticket and
got caught. He was convicted in
Leon County and fined $25. If he
didn't pay, he would be ordered
to serve three months at hard
labor. His family sent the money,
but it got lost in the bureaucracy
and was never received by the
court. He was leased to a lumber
company in Putnam County.
Tabert went to work in the
swamps cutting wood. He soon

This March 20, 1914, article in the Bradford County
Telegraph describes the work being done on the new
state prison farm on the banks of New River.


His family brought the case to
the attention of the government
officials in Tallahassee. Gov.
Cary Hardee outlawed the
practice of flogging and started
the process to outlaw the practice
of leasing convicts to private
companies. Convict leasing was
not completely abolished until
1923, however.


No more leasing
means huge growth
at Raiford prison
When the state stopped leasing
inmates to private companies,
it meant the number of inmates
who had to be housed in prisons
increased dramatically as a result
and the "Raiford Prison" grew by
leaps and bounds. The facility's
inmate population doubled
between 1921 and 1929. Note
that inmates continued to work
for the state on chain gang road
crews for many years following


that incident, but they were not
leased to private companies after
1923. The use of chain gangs
ceased in 1945, although inmates
continued to work on road crews.
Ironically, the use of the chain
gang was revived many years
later, but was short-lived. The
inmate work crews who noW
work out in public do not wear
leg irons while doing so.

Electric chair first
housed at what is

In 1922, inmates constructed
ithe first electric chair, .which
was considered a more humane
execution technique than
hanging. (Note that the last public
hanging in Bradford County had
occurred on Nov. 27, 1914.) The
chair and "death house" were
both at the Raiford prison site,
which is now UCI.
The current electric chair
aiid death house are located at
Florida State Prison, across New
River from UCI. (UCI continues
(,';,.,,


to house some 300 Death Row
inmates, however.)

In 1924, Frank Johnson
became the first inmate executed
by electrocution in the state of
Florida. By this time, the facility
was being called Florida State
Prison, but the buildings where
the execution took place were
located on the site that is now
called UCI.
The superintendent was the
official executioner in those
early days, but he often ceded
this task to a deputy executioner
who actually pulled the switch.
This was usually the sheriff of

what later became UCI. Called The Flat Top, the building on the right, Inside the encircling wall, was where Death
Row inmates and the electric chair were housed. Note that the building in the upper left-hand corner of the photo
was the West Unit, where female inmates were housed before a separate facility was built for them.

The infamous sweat box was a small enclosure, so small

stand up or sit, but could not lie down. He would often
stay in the box for two days with two or three other men.

the county where the inmate
committed his crime.

Tag plant, shirt factory
among first job
training projects
In 1927, the tag plant opened
at the Raiford prison and inmates
.began production, making all of
the Florida license plates for
motor vehicles. The tag plant
is still in operation today and
continues to train inmates in
manufacturing techniques. A
shirt factory also opened in 1927,
but is no longer in operation.
Guards were listed as earning
$50 per month that year and
the facility began organizing its
own dog team to track inmates
who escaped. Prior to that time,
if the facility needed to track an
inmate, it had to borrow tracking
dogs from private individuals.
Superintendent Blitch was
commended that year by the
Florida Legislature for doing
an outstanding job of running
a facility that was growing
dramatically.

Leg irons, shotguns
sweat boxes,
horizontal stripes...
Inmates in all state facilities
often worked in leg irons, under
the gaze of shotgun squads.
They wore horizontal stripes,
and although flogging had been
outlawed, inmates were still
sometimes whipped. Sweatboxes
were used as punishment for
inmates who broke the rules.
These were small, windowless
wooden boxes that required the
inmate to either stand or crouch
all night because there was no
room to lie down. Inmates often
had to stay in the box for two days
at a time. Sweatboxes continued
to be utilized until 1958.
The- inmates who worked on
the state road crews were under
the jurisdiction of the county
in which the construction was
taking place. They lived in
wheeled metal cages when they
weren't working.
The cages were kept at sites
near the work location, and it
does not appear that any were
used at the Raiford prison. These
cages had three bunks slung on
each side, with hardly room to
walk between the tiers.
In a 1924 report, ,Supervisor
of State Convicts B.H. Dickson
wrote, "These old cages are
unsanitary, uncomfortable,
unhealthy and in every way
undesirable... It is impossible to
provide any place in these vans
for the men to take a bath, and it
is a difficult matter to keep these
cages clear of vermin."
He recommended that the
counties who were responsible for
the road crews should be forced

been much Improved since its infancy.


to provide permanent barracks
for the inmates. Some counties
did provide better quarters for
the inmates and in 1941, state-
operated "road prisons" began to
appear throughout Florida.
Another recommendation
made by Dickson was to increase
the amount of money an inmate
was given upon release. In the
mid-1920s, inmates received
$10 upon release and had to
buy a suit of clothes and pay
for transportation himself. Of
course, that usually meant the
inmate had no money to live
on. If he didn't get a job right
away, and many didn't, the
inmate often turned to criminal
activity to make money. Today,
an inmate receives up to $50
cash upon release and the state
provides him with a change of
clothing and transportation to his
destination. The state also helps
ensure the ex-inmate has housing
and a job upon his release.

Prison expands and
grows The Rock is
born in 1928
ii an article published in the
Bradford County Telegraph
on Jan. 27, 1928, the writer
discussed an expansion project at
the Raiford prison that included
a single building covering three
acres of land. It was described as
being "built of concrete and tool-
proof steel interlaced throughout
the walls, every position giving
prisoners advantage of sunlight
and air."
The building was built
by convict labor at a cost of


approximately $300,000. It
would come to be known as "The
Rock" because it was "solid as a
rock." The Rock was to stand as
the largest and longest operating
single inmate housing area for
many years. It was closed in
1984 and was torn down in 1999.
In 1928, guards earned $720
per year, along with room and
board. They worked six 12-hour
days at the time.
In a March 29, 1929, article in
the Bradford County Telegraph,
the Raiford prison was described
as having 18,000 acres of land.
A total of 15,000 acres was
fenced and 2,000 acres were
under cultivation. The facility
had 1,200 cattle, 600 hogs, 3,000
laying hens and 100 mules and
horses. By 1932, the inmate
population was 2,000 male
and female inmates. Another
1210 inmates were working in
road crews. The facility had 85
employees.
In 1932, Blitch died and
Leonard F. Chapman was
appointed as superintendent. He
served in that capacity for 25
years and, while Blitch had made
many improvements that were
of benefit to both the state and
the inmates, Chapman proved
to be an even more progressive
influence.

Chapman proves
to be even more
progressive than
Blitch
Under Chapman's leadership,
the word "convict" was
forbidden and "inmate" was


used instead. He implemented
improved health services for the
inmates and educational classes
including grade school and job
training. Some of the courses
that provided job training for
the inmates were carpentry,
millwork, plumbing and auto
mechanics.
He also implemented programs
that encouraged improving work
habits and introduced measures
that increased community contact


for the inmates. He removed
the solid wooden fencing that
surrounded the institution in its
early days and replaced it with
chain-link fencing that allowed
the inmates a view of the outside
world.
During Chapman's tenure,
guards were first issued
uniforms. Prior to that, they had
worn normal clothing. Inmates
continued to wear the horizontal
black and white striped pants


until the end of the 1930s. After-
that point, the current inmate;
uniform with a single stripe
down the leg was introduced.

Roosevelt was visiting Miami
on Feb. 15, 1933. A man fired
five rounds at FDR as he sat
in a convertible talking to
constituents at Miami's Bayfront
Park. All five rounds missed
FDR, but hit other members of
the entourage, including Chicago
Mayor Anton J. Cermak.
The man was arrested and
identified as Giuseppe Zangara,
a naturalized Italian immigrant
who said he wanted to kill "kings
arid presidents" and didn't seem
to be too picky about specifically
which kings and presidents.
When Cermak died from his
injuries a month later, Zangara
insisted on pleading guilty to
murder charges, telling anyone
who would listen why he wanted
to1 shoot the president. "I shoot
kings and presidents. Capitalists
got all-a money... I kill
capitalists because they kill me,"
he: said (as quoted in a book by
Blaise Picchi, which recounted
the incident).

as a record for the swiftest
execution in Florida history.
According to witnesses, he
cursed at the minister sent to pray
with him and ordered him out of
the room. He insisted on placing
himself in the electric chair and
yelled, "Pusha da button!" at
the sheriff who was preparing
,to throw the switch. When FSP
became a separate entity in 1972,
the electric chair was moved
there and the Raiford prison
that became UCI no longer held
executions.
Also notable in the 1930s was
the implementation of the inmate


inmates would be fingerprinted
was introduced, although
comparing fingerprints at the
time was a tedious and time-
consuming job that was handled
by a person holding a magnifying
glass. Copies of the fingerprints
were filed in Tallahassee.
In 1942, a guard earned $50 a
month and housing was provided
to him. His laundry was done
at the prison and utilities were
included as a part of his salary.
He still had an inmate yardman
and inmate housekeeper and
was allowed access to farm
produce, meat and dairy products
produced at the farm.

World War II takes its
toll on prison
World War II affected the
Raiford prison, as it did the
entire world. Inmates addressed
and mailed the ration books that
allowed citizens to purchase the
items that were in short supply
due to the war. A letter from
Superintendent Chapman to
state officials in 1943 provided
a glimpse at life during the war
from a corrections standpoint:
"The past two years have
shown the effect that war can


been devoted to helping the war
effort in every way possible
and it is good to note that the
prisoners have made successful
contributions." Besides the
ration books, inmates donated
blood, harvested pulpwood for
the war effort, and even made
camouflage nets to help conceal
allied gun emplacements,
equipment and personnel.
In the letter, Chapman noted
that the inmate population had
dropped, "due doubtless to the
lack of idleness and poverty.
There has been no idleness
except willful idleness and no
poverty except willful poverty;
therefore there has been little
crime." Chapman also noted that
the prison was preparing for a
rapid increase in population once
the war was over.
It appears Chapman was right
in that prediction. In 1947, two
years following the end of the
war, the population of Florida
prisons showed an increase of
17.2 percent in one year. Also
in 1947, the guard's 12-hour
workday was shortened to the
same eight hours worked by
other government employees.

housing units separate from the
more manageable inmates.

Improvements at
facility continue
Improvements in the Raiford
prison's infrastructure continue
and a report submitted to the
state on Jan. 16, 1935, indicated
that the Raiford prison and other
camps around the state, "are now
equipped with pumping systems
from deep wells, elevated water
tanks, sanitary flush toilets,
shower baths, and hot and
cold water, all connected with
sanitary sewerage systems, and
where power lines are accessible
are equipped with electric lights;
kitchens, mess halls and barracks
are kept clean and neat, and
prisoners are required to take
shower baths and change from
work clothes to night clothes
before retiring; food is not only
good, but excellent and plentiful,
with a change of diet from day to
day." (Note that electricity wasn't
available to the Raiford prison
site until 1938.) A maximum-
security housing unit called "The
Flat Top" was built in 1935 to
house Death Row inmates and
the electric chair.
In 1935 the Raiford prison
also opened a cigarette factory,
which produced tobacco in
pouches with rolling papers. The
label read, "Dee Cee Smoking
Tobacco." It was produced for
inmates until 1972. After 1972,
inmates could still buy loose
tobacco and rolling papers or
packages of cigarettes, if they had
the money from the canteens.
In 2011, the Department of
Corrections changed all of
its facilities to non-smoking
facilities. Today, no UCI inmate
is allowed to possess cigarettes,
loose tobacco, rolling papers
or lighters. Only Death Row
inmates can possess smokeless
tobacco.

New hospital,
women's ward built
In 1936, several new buildings
opened at the Raiford prison, at
a construction cost of $305,102.
Two new women's dormnnitories,
one for white women and one
for "colored" women, opened
that year. An infirmary and a
hospital were also part of that

SPrison population continued
to increase through the 1950s
ahd the emphasis moved from
punishment to rehabilitation
of the inmates. The population
increase caused some severe
overcrowding problems at the
liaiford prison, which had a
population of 1,497 at that time.
Superintendent Chapman wrote
a letter in 1954,talking about the
overcrowding issue.
S"While the removal of the
N omen from the State Prison
(to what is now Lowell) offers
sbme relief of the crowded
condition at present, the steady
apd rapid increase of men in
te prison population indicates
tiat new facilities must be
provided in the near future,"
wrote Chapman. "More than
200 prisoners are now housed
in tin buildings of the Quonset
type and some of them sleep in
tiers three deep. Good sanitary
conditions are impossible in such
dircunstances and security is
likewise impossible." Chapman
doted in his letter that narcotic
addicts were a large part of the
ihflux of new prisoners.
Godwin dies trying to
prevent escape
of inmate
In 1955, the Raiford prison
riourned the loss of Asst.
Superintendent James G.
godwin, who died at the hand
of an escaping inmate. A visitor
smuggled a gun into the facility
tb inmate George Arthur Heroux,
who used it to escape. Godwin
was shot while attempting to
top Heroux's escape. Wounded
ip that same incident were staff
member Louie Wainwright
and Officer Les Dobbs. Staff
member Lawrence E. Dugger
*as also in the group that
tied to foil Heroux's escape
attempt, but he was not shot.
sonically, Wainwright would
go on to become the secretary
qf the Florida Department
df Corrections and Dugger's
sn, Richard, would take
Wainwright's place as secretary.
East unit (now FSP)
begins construction
Prison population continued
to grow and construction began
an the Raiford prison's "east"
unit. Located just across New
Waiver, the unit opened in 1958
as a maximum-security unit, and
W1as called the "O Unit." The
entirety of the east unit was not
completed until the late 1960s.
Expansion continued and the east
unit grew until it was split off in
1:972 to form an entirely different
prison facility. What is now
Florida State Prison was born
at that time and the west unit of
the Raiford prison became Union


Correctional Institution.
The six-digit inmate numbering
system was inaugurated in
1960 and is still in use today.
Executions were suspended in
Florida in 1964. Inmates were
still housed on Death Row, but
death warrants were not signed.
Executions in Florida resumed in
1979 with the execution of John
Spenkelink on May 25 of that
year. That execution was carried
out at Florida State Prison, which
by that time was a completely
separate facility from UCI.
In 1971, one year prior to the
division of the Raiford prison
into the present two facilities, a
series of riots and disturbances
at the facility was blamed on
overcrowded conditions. The
rioting lasted for an entire week
and resulted in five officers and
74 inmates being injured. The
facility suffered some $2,000
worth of the property damage.
Female correctional officers
were first hired in 1970s and
the training for all officers was
expanded during the 60s and 70s.

Inmates at UCI have always worked hard during their incarceration. Today,
unless an inmate is a management problem or physically or mentally incapable
of working, he has an assigned job that he does five days each week.
Most of those jobs give him training that will help him gain employment once he
returns to society.

with the help of the Duval County
Hostage Negotiation Team. The
Duval County SWAT Team was
standing by.
STen hours passed with no
progress and Superintendent
Raymond Massey and eight
armed officers prepared to
storm the office. Those officers
were: Col. Jackson, Major Gene
L. Tomlinson, Lt. Raymond
Wilkerson, Lt. Michael
Rhthmann, Lt. Gene Griffis,
Sgt. John Newman, Sgt. Roger
Murrhee and Col. Tom Barton.
A~l of them were UCI staff
niembers, with the exception
of Barton. He worked at FSP
and was known as a superb
marksman. He also had a proven
ability to remain calm under
pressure, as he had already been
involved in a hostage situation at
FSP during that same period of
"escape fever."
iLt. Griffis knew Raspberry
after supervising him on
Work details in the past, so he
acted as a go-between to relay
rqessages to the two inmates.


I-
...


The officials provided Griffis
with the superintendent's two-
shot Derringer, the only weapon
small enough to conceal from the
inmates. Griffis hid it in a Red
Man chewing tobacco pouch and
entered the room with orders to
use the Derringer, if he could get
a clear shot.
Officials put through a phone
call from Raspberry's mother
and, while he was distracted
with the call, Griffis fired on
Mitchell, who was holding a
knife to the secretary's throat.
He then immediately turned and
fired into Raspberry's chest.
Mitchell fell unconscious, but
Raspberry managed to grab the
secretary. The Derringer was out
of ammunition, but Col. Barton
used a shotgun to blow open
the door and the other officers
stormed in and fired five more
times into Raspberry's body. He
released the hostage, although
she had received a superficial
laceration across her neck and
shoulder.
Mitchell died, but Raspberry
miraculously survived. He died
in prison on Jan. 5, 2000. All the


officers involved received high
praise from DOC officials and
even ,from the grand jury that
later investigated the incident.

3 UCI escapees kill
FHP trooper
Less than two months later,
another incident resulted in the
death of a Florida Highway
Patrol officer and a'civilian who
was assisting with the search
for three escaped UCI inmates.
James Malone, Edward Kennedy
and James Bonaventure had
escape paraphernalia buried
outside their housing area at UCI.
They strangled the dorm
officer until he was almost
unconscious and then tied him
up and locked him in a cell.
They stole his keys and wallet
and made their way out of the
building. They used some wire
cutters they had buried to cut
through two of the three fences.
They climbed the third and made
their way through an extremely
foggy night. An officer walking
fog patrol saw one of them and
fired on him, but the foggy night

concealed the inmates and aided
in their escape.
The alarm was raised,
however, and canine officers
Sgt. William B. Jackson and
Officer Duane Jordan caught
Malone and Bonaventura after
only four hours. Kennedy
eluded the pursuit and made it
to Baldwin, where he killed FHP
Trooper Robert P. McDermon
and civilian Floyd Hartford
Cone Jr:, when they tried to help
capture him. Kennedy took a
woman and child hostage, but
later surrendered to authorities.
He was later executed at FSP on
July 21, 1992, for the murders of
McDermon and Cone.

Dennard dies after
attack in The Rock
UCI had weathered the 1981
hostage incident -with no loss
of life to DOC staff, but a May
5, 1983, incident left them
mourning the loss of one officer
and the injury of three more. The
officers were attacked by inmates
in the main housing unit, The
Rock. Sgt. John Steven Dennard
was brutally stabbed multiple
times and died at the age of 29.
Also injured in the unprovoked
attack, were Mitch Anderson,
Richard Harvey and Tommy
Baker. They were hospitalized,
but survived. Dennard had been
with DOC since 1978, but had

fencing so that inmates could see the outside world.

week at the time of his death.
The entire institution, and
hundreds of fellow officers from
other institutions, mourned his
passing.

ABOVE: These homemade weapons were confiscated from UCI inmates over a period of several years.
They tell a story of the danger and violence that is always a possibility in any prison setting. LEFT:
During Superintendent Leonard Chapman's tenure, inmates were first provided with the opportunity to!
further their education, both through grade school classes like these and through job training programs.


Continued from 9
PRIDE. PRIDE is a nonprofit
organization that provides job
training for inmates.
This training often leads to
employment upon their release.
UCI now has a furniture factory
and a dental lab inside its
walls, both of which are run by
PRIDE. The furniture factory
manufactures metal furniture and
the dental lab crafts dentures,
partial plates, bridges, etc. The
tag plant which was one of
the facility's first job-training
ventures and is still going strong
is also operated by PRIDE.
All three facilities train inmates
Sand give them experience that
will help them land a job once
they are released.
80s see overcrowding
problems, DOC
expansion
Overcrowding continued to be
a problem in the state through
the 1980s as new facilities
were built and some inmates
were even housed in tents until
other housing could be found
for them. Administrative gain
time was introduced, allowing
inmates to earn time off their


sentences in addition to,
normal gain time. The measi
that were implemented to e
overcrowding resulted in inm;
serving less and less of tl
sentences.
In the late 1980s,
department began a build
campaign in an effort to meet
demand for more bed space
growing public sentiment 1
inmates should serve more
their sentences. The percent
of an inmate's sentence that
actually served by that inn
went from approximately
percent in the 1980s to 80-p
percent in 2000.
Today's UCI a unique
facility providing
housing for general
population, Death Rc
and mental health
UCI is still going strong toc
and houses some 2,000 inmaa
approximately 300 of which
on Death Row. Approximal
half the population is housed
a "general population" basis ;
the other half are confinem
inmates which are inmi
who are more difficult to mana
Most of the inmates hou
at UCI, even in the gent


the population area, are


close


custody inmates and many have
life sentences. The facility has
four confinement housing units
for inmates who are receiving
mental health treatment. It is one
of the major facilities in the state
where inmates can receive such
treatment on an inpatient basis,
and inmates are often transferred
to UCI so they can be provided
with that treatment.
The general population
unit, consisting of 13 different
dormitories and called the
Southwest Unit, was constructed
in 1974. The Southeast Unit,
two dormitories that are used to
house confinement inmates who
do not necessarily have mental
health issues, was built in 1985
and the new Death Row complex
was built in 1992.
The mental health units were
opened later, the two dorms in
the Northwest Unit were opened
in 1998 and 2000, respectively,
and the North Central Unit
dorms were both opened in
2003. Current staffing levels for
the entire facility rang from
750-780, including security staff,
medical staff, mental health
treatment providers and support

THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2013 TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR UCI 100 YEARS 11


'Continued from 10
staff like maintenance, clerical,
food service and other workers.
SA new housing unit is currently
,under construction on the banks
Iof New River and will be under
'the control of UCI. It will house
inmates of a lower custody level
,than those currently housed at
UCI. These inmates will provide
community work squads that
,will serve government entities
throughout the area. The unit
iS expected to be ready to open
soon, although a date has not yet
been set.
. corrections in Florida,
rough the years, moved away
from punishment and toward
the goal of preparing inmates
to successfully re-enter society.
With that purpose firmly in mind,
JCCI now supports, a number of
re-entry efforts. The largest of
,these are the three major PRIDE
operations, which are carried out
within the secure perimeter -
;which means they operate inside
the encircling fence.


The tag plant trains inmates to
work in a major manufacturing
plant. The furniture factory
trains them to operate machinery
and use techniques related to
manufacturing metal furniture.
These skills can be translated
into other areas of manufacturing
as well. The dental lab trains
inmates to do the highly skilled
tasks related to producing
dentures, bridges and other dental
prosthetic devices. Inmates who
gain those particular skills are
usually hired by major companies
immediately upon their release,
and are usually paid a significant
salary.
Between the three operations,
approximately 250 inmates are
in, specialized training each
weekday.
Death Row inmates and
inmates who are behavior
problems spend much of their
day in confinement. Some of
the inmates with mental health
issues do not work due to their
medical problems.
Every other able-bodied inmate


housed at the institution works
each weekday. Approximately
half the institution's population
spends five days a week working
in some type of job inside the
facility's fences. These are
jobs that can provide skills that
could assist them in finding
employment upon their release.


Recreation an important

component to life

throughout UCI's history.
