The Emergency Home Energy Community News Toms High on the Hog closes New operator plans to reopen within 90 days Toms High on the Hog Barbecue closed its doors Saturday. The restaurant was located at the corner of C.R. Southeast 21B and S.R. 100, near the Bradford-Clay County line. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor After a four-year run, Toms High on the Hog Real Pit Barbecue closed its doors Saturday, and at the same time announced that a new operator is taking over the establishment. A sign posted on the front door of the building said the new operator will be Florida Cracker Kitchen, a Brooksvillebased southern cuisine restaurant with a second location in Jacksonville. Workers started clearing land for Toms in early 2013, and Tom and Cathy Perryman opened the establishment one year later. The couple established Country Caterers in the 1970s, forging a niche in large-scale emergency food service with a capacity of serving 15,000 people a day. Country Caterers also provided life support and base camp services to its clients. In 2012, the Jacksonville Business Journal ranked Country Caterers as the eighth largest woman-owned business in the Jacksonville area, based on annual revenue. When building the restaurant, the Perrymans partnered with the operators of Frontline Homeowners Insurance of Lake Mary, some of whom are relatives of Tom Perryman. By 2015, the Perrymans were business, and the Lake Mary partners brought in Vincent Esson as CEO. Esson became well known in Bradford County and the Lake Region as he promoted the establishment of an RV park, which he hoped to build adjacent to the restaurant.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Florida Auditor Generals audit of the Bradford County School District for 2016-17 found shortcomings in its hiring and screening of contractors among other things. While the construction manager was selected through a competitive process, architect Paul Stressing was not. The reason given at the time is that it was not necessary; the district intended to use one of Stressings existing designs completed for another school district, modifying it as needed. According to the audit, Stressings hiring did not comply with state law or the school boards own policies, which require a competitive selection process. Just as with the construction manager, the job should have been advertised and applicants rated so the district could negotiate with the most Per the audit, The competitive selection process reduces the appearance and opportunity for favoritism and architect was selected in a fair, equitable Bill to address Starke sewer ranges from big to huge BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The city has big decisions to make about the future of the wastewater plant as well as the sewage it treats, and whatever the future holds, the city has to keep the plant running in the meantime. Before he became city manager, Bob Milner was already talking to Starke employees about the sewer system and wastewater treatment plant, including the aging lift stations and the ongoing project to test sewer lines and discover points streets during heavy rainfall. Milner said hes been increasingly concerned about the status of the wastewater treatment plant since becoming manager. Just as the city expects to receive a report on the state of the sewer lines at the conclusion of the current project, the commission must be aware of the state of its treatment plant and what must be done in the near future to continue utilizing the extremely old gravity fed plant, he said.

I really dislike all the computer equipment they are putting in cars these days making it so you cannot work on your own vehicle and have to spend more money to pay for the dealer to do it. I think social media is both good and bad it can serve useful purposes, but it can also create many problems. I dont think our founding fathers ever intended for freedom of speech to mean what we have to deal with today. Mobile phone: I never had a cell phone before I was elected Superintendent in 2000. In a way, it is a convenience, and in a way an aggravation. You feel as though you are always on duty. You get to the point that, if you leave it at home, you almost feel as if you are missing an arm or a leg. I have a Samsung Verizon Galaxy S-7. I use it to keep my calendar, keep track of school email, send texts and make calls. I have made my number available to the public, so I often get calls from parents and citizens with questions. Laptop: I use the same Chromebook that our students use Internet: The school district now uses Skyward: an internetbased student management system which features student and parent engagement tools and automation of administrative tasks. The Skyward system is a real innovation which is showing great results. It allows parents to communicate with teachers and administrators, as well as keep track of their childs progress as to grades, attendance, behavior and other factors. This is a real plus for our district.Mug: Yeti Tumbler I would never have believed that these things would really work and would never have bought one for myself, but I received one as a gift and now would not want to do without it. Bike Fest moving and changing BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Its almost fair time, and the Strawberry Festival is just around the corner, but the group responsible for Starkes Bike Fest is already planning its fall event. But it turns out that event will not be a Bike Fest. Downtown Merchant Chrissy Thompson appeared Feb. 6 to ask the city commissions blessing as the merchants move the event to November and unite it with events celebrating military veterans. Thompson poked fun at the age of organizers, saying the heat of August was just to oppressive to See FEST, 4A Kindergarten through second-grade winners were Timothy Crawford, Kali Magyari and Trace Martin. The permitting process is still ongoing for the RV park. When reached by phone Tuesday, Esson said he felt the location needed something new. There are not a lot of breakfast places around, he said, so we reached out to Florida Cracker. We are excited. They are excited. The community is excited. Blair Hensley, one-half of the brother duo that operates Florida Cracker Kitchen, praised the structure he is leasing. Its a heck of a building, he said. Spotless, and they gave us a good deal. Hensley added that Keystone Heights is similar to his hometown of Brooksville, and with the potential of an RV park next door made the prospects of a third Florida Country Kitchen in Keystone Heights even more appealing. He said he hoped to open in 60 to 90 days, adding that the mini golf course on the property will also reopen. Hensley, along with this brother Ethan were raised in the restaurant business. Their mother owns restaurants in the Brooksville area. Blair was already operating Brooksvilles Coney Island Drive Inn when the family got word in 2013 that John Carlone, owner of Farmer Johns Key West Caf was looking to sell. Carlone served Caribbeanstyle food like Key West Crepes, panko shrimp and conch chowder. The brothers kept many of Carlones dishes, but also brought in their own southern cuisine, which their family has been serving for generations. They also renamed the establishment Florida Cracker Kitchen. The new format went over well in Brooksville. Earlier this month, the Hensleys opened a second location on Jacksonvilles Beach Boulevard.

Mittauer is urging the city to wait a little while longer, until March, when it can present a full report on the citys options, including construction of a new sewer plant. The cost of a new plant is estimated at $12 million to $15 million, but with more money available for environmental protection at the state level, Mittauer believes the city is in a good position to have up to three quarters of that cost covered by a grant award. Annual debt service on a low-interest loan would fund the rest. The subject of the consent order alone is not the only environmental challenge facing the citys sewer system. The future of its permit could depend on diverting all of its treated water away from Alligator Creek. Stricter regulations mean that almost no pollutant is allowed to be discharged into the creek. Starkes engineers said its sewer plant cannot produce a theyre not sure any plant could do it consistently. The city may apply the treated water as it does of the city. Among the infrastructure problems, Sneddon said the outfall structure to Alligator Creek is compromised. The pipe has collapsed and the headwall is falling into the creek. Soon the discharge problem could solve itself. At the plant, aeration diffusers have popped off into the basins and cannot be retrieved until the tank is drained. Hydraulic problems interfere with draining the tank. Also falling in the tanks: internal and new mechanics installed. The plant also has problems sand. The cleaning of the sewer line has resulted in even more sand, and the tanks must be shut down and drained to clean the sand out. Of the 650,000 gallons coming into the plant every day, engineers estimate that 300,000 gallons is excess water. Eliminating that could result in a Sneddon also addressed the lack of automation and impact that could be made to minimize sludge generation. One area where the city has made progress is the repair of lift stations, but the monitoring of those stations could be automated as well. Instead of an employee spending four hours a day running around Starke to check those stations, they could be monitored from afar. An operator could something goes wrong and even potentially address the problem with the touch of a button. Mittauer could have a tough time convincing the city to pursue funding for a new plant. Milner said it would cost approximately $2 million to make the repairs needed to get current wastewater treatment plant and prefers that route. That doesnt address the problem Sewer Department Supervisor Kyle Jerrels is recommending treated wastewater, one that The city could potentially sell to someone eager to develop near the bypass, he said. The citys permit gives it three and a half years to decide what to do the approximate amount of time it would take to construct a new plant. But as Mittauer pointed out, that could cost as much as $15 million. Commissioners had some questions about how these problems accumulated, perhaps forgetting about their own extended legal pas de deux with a contractor over a million-dollar system that was supposed to render the citys former wastewater treatment facility obsolete a system that ultimately never worked. Memory also failed when staff was questioned about why funding for sewer plant repairs was not included in the budget. Staff did suggest options for increasing revenue, but commissioners requested cuts to balance the budget. SEWER Continued from 1A continue holding a late summer event. The committee met and chose Veterans Day weekend instead. It would be a tribute to veterans. The Downtown Merchants also support and have been doing Veterans Day at the square, Thompson said. Plans include working with local veterans organizations, which conduct an annual observance at Veterans Memorial Park next to the Downtown Square on Nov. 11. Draws such would return and be included within the three-day music festival Nov. 91. The change doesnt mean bikes are out. In fact, Thompson said a lot of bikers are veterans and the festival would be very biker friendly. At the same time, they they are moving away from the Bike Fest designation. Thompson said the Downtown Merchants arent in the festival business to make money. been donating proceeds to Communities in Schools to fund college scholarships and support their other events, including the Great Pumpkin Escape. Of course, the events to generate revenue for businesses downtown and throughout the city. Bike Fest in particular attracts dozens of vendors from throughout the state in addition to the out-of-town visitors. But Thompson said even they have been asking for the event to move to the end of the year. Downtown Merchants also has Green on the Green coming up on March 17 from noon to 11 p.m. The St. Patricks Day celebration includes bands, vendors and food trucks. In other business: the commission received a report from Tish Bryant on the citys Hurricane Irma related support from FEMA. So far, the city has compiled $600,000 of partially reimbursable expenses. the commission approved an update to its adult arcade ordinance. Attorney John Cooper state regulations and dropped local requirement that would not hold up in court, including a population-based limit on the number of arcades allowed to operate in the city. the commission renewed its waste-hauling contract with WCA. Going forward, the hauler will begin offering weekly bulk garbage collection instead of monthly, and yard waste collection will move from the day of the week. An annual cost increase to commercial customers tied to the CPI will continue, Tommy Chastains vote against the contract. the city will take another look at this permit requirements for auto sales after voting to deny a permit for an out-of-county dealership which held its sale at Walmart anyway. That could for those who violate the permit requirement. the city voted to accept state grant funding to resurface Orange Street, although there was no guarantee the $1 million award would be enough to pay for all of the work, including utility improvements. Commissioners city. FEST Continued from 3A and economic manner. The report notes that although auditors requested one, no explanation was provided for noncompliance. The district hired Stressing in September 2016 at the recommendation of the former superintendent, Chad Farnsworth, who began the project to replace Southside, Hampton and Brooker elementary schools with a new PK-7 combination school, as well as Stressing and Gene Tanner, who was hired to consult on the project. The current superintendent, Stacey Creighton, voted in favor of the hiring while on the school board. The school board supported seeking funds to construct a new school even if board members didnt agree wholeheartedly with Farnsworths vision for the school. They hired Stressing, who had previously worked for the district and is expected to earn an estimated $2 million for his services. Creighton said there is a difference of opinion between the auditors, Stressing and Tanner over the hiring process. Nevertheless, she said the district will follow the audits recommendation to use the competitive process going forward. Auditors found another failure to comply with statutory requirements and board policy related to student safety. Instructional and noninstructional contractors who have access to campuses when students are present are supposed to undergo background screenings every contractors include therapists, consultants and psychologists providing services directly for students. On examination, auditors 15 such contractors did not demonstrate the required screenings were ever performed. The district responded to their inquiry by saying efforts were made to verify initial background screenings, but not obtained primarily because the district did not maintain a comprehensive list of workers subject to the screenings. Auditors said, Absent effective controls to identify all contractor workers and promptly obtain and evaluate background screenings of all applicable workers, there is an increased risk that workers with unsuitable backgrounds may be allowed access to students. The district responded by saying it would keep and upto-date list of contract workers subject to screenings. The Bradford-Union Technical Center is also apparently required to notify students and employees of the FDLE sexual predator and sexual offender registry website and toll-free number. Ignorant of that requirement, the technical center did not comply, but will in the future. Auditors also found fault in the records for two of the four teachers awarded Florida Best and Brightest Teacher Scholarships totaling more than $13,000. The scholarships are awarded based upon academic achievement prior to being hired and eligibility continues based on annual job performance evaluations. The two awards in question were based on college entrance scores obtained from the test providers website instead of college transcript. The district claims it was led to believe by the Florida Department of Education that it had leeway in deciding what constitutes said the effort to verify that exam scores are accurate would better assure teacher eligibility, and the district agreed. repeated from a prior audit and concerns the incompleteness of the school districts disaster recovery plan in the event of a major hardware or software failure. The plan did not include facility to be used in the event of a disaster because the district had not been able to identify one with compatible software and hardware capabilities. With the migration to a new enterprise software system, the district believes it can identify and contract with an alternate facility.

Sponsored by Bradford County Master Gardeners, the workshop is at 2 p.m. March 20 at the Bradford In 2018, National Geographic, National Audubon and more than 100 organizations around the world are joining forces to celebrate the Year of the Bird and commit to protecting birds today and for the next hundred years. This year marks the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird-protection law ever passed. To learn more visit: https://www.nationalgeographic. org/projects/year-of-the-bird. In the previous article about attracting bluebirds, I discussed habitat and birdhouses. Here, Ill share information about their behavior and birdhouse care. Eastern bluebird behavior is quite interesting to observe. They are rarely solitary and will The birds often perch in low trees or shrubs while scanning for insects with their keen eyesight, or they can be found foraging on the ground for insects and seeds. They often return to the same perch, repeatedly, as they catch each new morsel. As a courtship display, a male of the female with his wings and tail partly spread. While perched close together, pairs may preen each others feathers or the male may feed the female. Both parents bring food to the nestlings, and young from a previous brood also help to feed them in some cases. Birdhouse care for me has been simple. Although we have predators such as ants, squirrels, raccoons, snakes and hornets, our boxes dont seem to get unduly disturbed by them. Our two nesting boxes have doors that can be opened for cleaning. Since bluebirds have multiple broods per season, its a good idea to clean out nesting material between broods. You can clean a house by scraping out the old nesting material with a screwdriver or putty knife. Using a few extra precautions is optional. For example, wear a dust mask to prevent exposure to airborne particles and avian diseases. Seal the nesting material in a plastic bag before putting it in the trash to avoid attracting predators. Wash the house by spraying the inside with water from a garden hose in order to remove the last bits of debris. Leave the house open for several hours so that it can dry. Keep a close watch on the birds to make sure they have before attempting to clean. Let me conclude with a personal story. When I worked at Lawtey Elementary we had a real problem one year with bluebirds door. It was very disruptive and seemed to continue for several days. In doing some research I learned that when birds notice they assume it is a rival bird and it, rake it with their talons, beat it with their wings, or strike up aggressive poses. While these actions dont generally cause severe injuries, they can lead to exhaustion that will make the bird more vulnerable to disease, malnutrition and predators. Since we were desperate to eliminate the irritating noise, we tried closing the blinds when the birds started pecking. This seemed to solve the dilemma. To learn more about bluebirds, please join our upcoming workshop. Lynn Bryan, Master Gardener The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution.
