Times Staff Writer
Union County School Board
members will see a little extra
compensation in the upcoming
year.
School board members voted
4-1 to increase their pay by
$757 per year. Each year the
Florida School Boards
Association (FSBA) gives each
scho ol district a
recommendation as to what
board members' salaries
should be. For the past two
years board members in Union
County have voted to take less


than what the FSBA
recommends.
Board member Allen Parrish
cast the dissenting vote. "I
believe school board members
get paid enough," Parrish said.
Parrish said he feels the money
could be better spent in the
classrooms of Union County.
"I cannot vote for a raise for
board members when we are
limiting non-instructional
administrators' salaries,"
Parrish said.
Non-instructional
administrators inc lude
personnel such as principals
and vice principals. These
employees have salary


increases for their years of
experience capped at 10 years.
These increases are commonly
referred to as a step increase.
Instructional personnel, such
as teachers have a 30-step cap.
More than 50 percent of
non-instructional
administrators in Union
County will have served the
county for 10 years or more
starting i.n the 2005-2006
school year. Those personnel
will only receive the cost-of-
living raise if school board
members approve one next
year.
Florida Statues require each
district school board to


determine the salary of its
members each year. Florida
Statue 145 provides officials
with a formula for
compensation of elected
county constitutional officers.
This same formula has
historically been used to
calculate the salary of school
board members. The formula
consists of taking a base salary
and adjusting it with
population data, an annual
factor and a cumulative factor.
This formula is what the FSBA
bases its recommendation on.
This year the FSBA
recommended Union County
School Board members receive


$22.430 annually. Last year
the FSBA's recommendation
was for $22,128. Last year
board members approved a
salary of $21,673, $455 less
than the FSBAs
recommendation.
Of the 67 counties in
Florida, 37 voted to accept the
FSBAs recommended salary
for the 2003-2004 school year.
By the same account, 29
counties voted for a salary
lower than what the FSBA had
recommended, including
Union.
The members of the Polk
County School Board voted for

'Tiger Idol'

field

narrowed

By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer


The field for the title of
"Tiger Idol" was narrowed by
three at its Christmas show on
Dec. 16.
A 17-contestant field was-
narrowed to 14 when the votes
from. the program's first
performance were announced.
Each monthly show will
continue to '" eliminate
contestants until March when
just four performers are left.
From the four, a "Tiger Idol"
will be named.
Joseph Perry, Michelle
Hunter, Elizabeth Davey,
Lauren Allen, Jaite Stewart,
David Love, Justirne-Rgerus. ,
Haley McMinn, Chelsey
Crews, Jessica Thornton, the
Southside Steppers, Vania
Hines, Melissa Dukes and
Elliot Willis all performed for
the more than 150 people
gathered for the Christmas
show. Performers are not only
allowed to sing, but to dance or
show off other talents as well.
Allen sang "Walking in a
Winter Wonderland" while
David Love modelled for the
crowd. Love's performance
included the removal of his
shirt, which.received a very
positive response from the
mostly female audience.
Three judges, along with the
audience's vote, help to make
up each contestant's score.
Each judge accounts for 25,;
percent of each contestant's'-
score. The audience vote:
comprises the final 25 percent.
Scores are calculated, but are
not announced until the
beginning of the next show.
Judges for the evening were
well versed in the music and

Woman's Club to get much needed repairs


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Lake Butlers woman's
Club will be getting some
much needed repairs thanks t6
the state of Florida's Division
of Historical Resources
(DHR).
The club recently received
$46,000 from the DHR to
update the roof and porch of
the structure. The money came
.in the form of a grant from
DHR. The department is
responsible for the
administration of grant-in-aid
assistance for historic.
preservation purposes.
The building served as the
county's first ever courthouse
when the county was formed in
1921. When the present day
courthouse was built in 1938,
the building was given to the
Woman's Club. It was then
rolled on logs to its present day
location.
In 2003, the club was added
to the National Register of
Historical Places. The
designation qualified the club
for funds from DHR. Only
two other buildings in the
county are a part of the


register.
The Townsend Building,
located on Main Street in Lake
Butler, was added to the
register in 1992. The James W.
Townsend House located at
235 SW 4th Avenue in Lake
Butler was added in 1996. All
three buildings met an
extensive list of criteria to be
added to the register.
Many factors go into listing
a building on the register. The
quality of significance in
American history, architecture,
archaeology, engineering and
culture of a site are all
considerations when adding a
location to the list. As a rule,
properties eligible for listing in
the register are at least 50
years in age.
Lake Butler City Manager
Richard Tillis was instrumental
in the club receiving the grant.
Tillis composed the grant the
club-submitted to DHR. Tillis
has an extensive background in
grant writing, including several
for the city. "I was happy I
could help the Woman's Club
obtain this grant," said Tillis.
Work is set to begin on the

Above: The Lake Butler Woman's Club as it sits today. In the next several weeks, work
will begin on installing a new roof and porch on the building that once served as the
county's courthouse. For more on the project, see related story.

the largest underage. While the
SB.,A recommended board
members receive $34,839,
board members decided on a
$29,000 per year salary. The
$5,839 decrease was 10 times
lower than the amount any
other county voted to decrease
. its salary by.
Only one school district in
Florida voted to give members
more than the FSBA
recommendation. Hardee
County School Board members
voted to give themselves an
annual salary of $24,055 for
2004. That is even more than
the FSBA has recommended
for the board in 2005.
Only six other counties fell
below the salary
recommendations of Union
County. Calhoun, Franklin,
Gilchrist, Jefferson, Lafayette
and Liberty counties all
received lower
recommendations than Union
did. While Union County is the
smallest county in Florida in
square mileage the six other
counties are smaller than
Union in population.

Special aviation

awards presented at

science fair in UC


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer

Five Union County students
were recognized recently for
their science fair projects on
aviation.
The Flying Tiger Aerospace
and Aviation Awards were
given to the most innovative
projects relating to aviation
and aerospace sciences. In the
senior division two projects
tied for first place. James
Wring's "What Wing Flies the
Best" and Elliot Willis's "GPS
vs VOR" were judged to be the
best aviation projects at the
Union County High School
Science Fair. For their efforts
each received a $50 prize.
In the junior division, Miles
Willis "Bernoulli vs Dynamic"


The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you
enthrone in your heart-this you will build your life by, this
you will become.
-James Lane Allen


project took first place honors.
Willis took home $50 for "his
efforts as well. Spencer Bell's
"Wider Gliders" and Mark
Riherd's "Does Gravity Affect
Everything Equally" received
achievement awards.
Flying Tiger Airport
representative John Rimes III,
and one of three judges for the
awards, said they hoped to
make the. awards an annual
part of the science fair. "I am
hoping these awards spur an
interest in aviation and
aerospace science among
students in Union County,"
Rimes said. "We hope to have
more participation each year."

Lawsuit results from 1996. slaying of a child


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

The father of a three-year-old
who was killed in 1996 by the
mother's live-in boyfriend is-
suing the Department of
Children and Families (DCF) for
damages. alleging that DCF
should have known the child was
in danger and should have taken
steps to protect her.
Larry Christopher Noegel of
Starke has already been
convicted of second-degree
murder and sentenced to 30
years in prison for the death of
Ciara Floyd. The criminal trial
has long been over, buftthe civil
trial that resulted from the case is
being heard this week in
Bradford County by Judge Elzie
Sanders.
The child's father, Fred Floyd
Jr. of Lake Butler, filed a lawsuit
.against DCF in 1997 and that
suit has now progressed to trial.
Attorney Val Bates,
representing Floyd, said the
plaintiff alleges DCF did not do
enough to protect Ciara after
Floyd made allegations of abuse.
Bates indicated DCF should
have known Ciara was in danger
based on Noegel's continued
proximity to the child and his
background.
Noegel had been arrested on a
domestic violence charge against
an adult woman prior to 1995.
There was a sworn complaint
lodged against him in December
of 1995 by Tanya Timmons of
Bradenton. That complaint
alleged.- Noegel abused
Timmons' three-\ear-old son
while Timmons lived with
Noegel in Union County. The
state atiorne,'s olitice was
waiting for more information
from doctors and was still
processing that complaint when
Ciara died.
The family was aware of the
domestic violence arrest prior to
Ciara's death, but was not aware
of the sworn complaint.
Flo. d i.-".,k Ci.-ra t.o the
hospital in June of 1996 vith
bruises on her front, back, arm,
Shin and head that he alleged
were caused by Noegel. DCF
was called in by a hospital social
worker and in estigaied.
According to attorney Dennis
Dean. Janice Joner, the DCF
inm estigator involved, was not
aare of !he pending sworn
complaint when she investigated
the June V996 incident. A
problem % ith calling up records
apparently stemmed from
Noegel going by his middle
name. Chris. and some records,
being under his first name,
LarTv. v
Fib 'J. however, said he went
to the Union County Sheriff's
Office after Ciara's death armed
only %\ ith the name Chris Noegel
and was given the records of
both Noegel's domestic violence
arrest and the s%%orn complaint
issued b\ Timmons.
Flo d and his attorneys allege
DCF should have been able to
access those records as easily as
Flo\d himself did.
Dean said even if those
records had been available, the
'confines of the law wouldstill
not have allowed Joiner to
remove Ciara from the home. He
said a thorough investigation
was conducted with Joiner
interviewing numerous family
members, bab.siitter', medical
personnel, etc.
Dean said at the time of the
June 1996 incident, doctors
could not definiti\clyv say the
bruises on Ciara's bhod) xere the
result of abuse, Floyd told
doctors he felt Noegel was
.responsible for the injuries
(based mainly on his knowledge
of the domestic violence arrest
and DCF was called in due to his
statement.
Dean said Joiner found no
evidence of abuse during that
investigation and noted that
although DCF can immediately
remove a child from a home,,
investigahis ha e 0o go before a
judge within 24 hours and
provide evidence to indicate why
that action was taken.
Sandra Floyd, Ciara's
grandmother, was providing a
home for Floyd in 1996 and
Ciara visited her father there on
a regular basis. Sandra Floyd
said they grew increasingly
alarmed about the situation in
1996 when Ciara began to cry
and resist going back to her
mother's home. "She was always.
excited to come to my house and
she was always excited when it
was time to go home (to her
mother's house). It was unusual


when she began to cry and say
she didn't want to go home,"
said Sandra Floyd.


During testimony, Floyd said
he did not feel-Ciara's-mother,
Lisa Jones, was a bad mother


and had not necessarily wanted
the child taken adway from her. "1
wanted Ciara took care of. If that


meant taking her out of the
house, that would have been
fihc. If that meant., telling


(Noegel) to have no contact % ith

Starke school teachers share thoughts on 2.005


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

A oew year is underway and
with a new year comes
reflection. What will the year
bring? What do I hope to
accomplish during the year.
.What would I like to see
happen?
Some of the teachers at
public schools in Starke shared
their thoughts on the new year
(see related' story for some
thou g h ts from
teachers/employees in Brooker,
Hampton and Lawtey):
Bradford High School
teacher and coach Deac Story
said the thing he would like to.
see in 2005 is more students
pass. the FCAT, but he would
also like to see more students
willing to work hard in order to
achieve that.
"I'd like to see more kids put
forth the effort and take on
some of, the responsibility
instead of just assuming that the
teachers are going to take all of
the responsibility," Story said.
"Yes, it is part of the teachers'
responsibility to get kids
passing the FCAT, but it's more
of the students' responsibility to


Deac Story


BES,


HES


'~


~.. A


Christie Torode


be receptive and to be willing to
work at passing it."
Story recently got married, so
a personal goal of his in 2005 is
to be a good husband.
Other than that, Story wants
to try to achieve the same thing
this year that he tries to achieve
every year.
"My New Year's resolutions
are the same every year-to be
:a better Christian man," he said.
."That's what I try to do every
day."
Pride is something
Bradford High School teacher
Christie Torode would like to
see more of in 2005.
"I would really like to see the
kids fake more pride in their
school because this is their
school," Torode said. "It's a
good school and they're given
good opportunities here."
A sense of 'pride, however,
should not be limited to the
BHS campus, Torode said.
"J would like to see the
American people taking pride in
being an American instead of
being divisional," she said.
"We're- all- Americans,
regardless of what we believe."
As far as personal goals in


2005, Torode said she would
like to spend more time in
prayer and in reading the Bible.
"My life is so busy and
involved in kids, school and
family life," Torode said'. "It's
hard to find the time that you
.need to spend in a day praying
and reading the Bible.
Hopefully, I can accomplish
that this year."
..Robbie Best teaches an
elective technology class at
Bradford Middle School and
one thing he would like to see
in 2005 is for the students to be
exposed to more cutting-edge
technology that will help them
later in their lives.
"I think that one of the-things'
we really need to focus on as a
school system-and myself as a
teacher-is making sure that
students have as much access to
the technology' that's already
being employed in the
workplace," Best said.
One thing Best would like to
continue working toward in
2005 is being able to help those
students who, because of
behavioral problems, are not
succeeding in the classroom.
These students are "slipping
through the cracks," Best


said-their behavior does not
warrant that they be sent to the
Renaissance Center, but it does
prevent them from being
successful in a regular
classroom setting,
Best said he would like an
opportunity to help those
students in a formal school
setting.
"I'd like to explore some
opportunities. to meet those
needs," Best said.
Best is looking forward to
continuing to coach the middle
school football team in 2005, as
well as taking on another sport.
"This will be my first year of
coaching baseball, so I'm
looking forward to the
opportunity of doing that," Best
said.
N Don Kelly, a seventh
grade math and pre-Algebra
teacher .at Bradford Middle
School, said he would like to
see students improve their
scores on the FCAT in 2005.
He's hoping he and fellow
BMS teacher Gayle Weaver can
help students improve their
scores with a grant received
through Florida State
University. The grant provides
different teaching materials that


Apryl Coleman and Tangalia Bass


are designed to help students
perform better in math.
"We're doing a few things in
our classes ,that will hopefully
help us meet that goal (of
students improving their FCAT
scores),",Kelly said.
, Kelly would also like to see
the parents become more.


involved in their children's
education.
"I think that's one place.
we've fallen short," he said.
"We need to get them more
involved in the schools. I'm not
sure how to do that, but there

her. that would have been fine,
too." said Floyd.
Floyd said he and Lisa Jones
had no disagreements over
visitation rights. He got Ciara
ever other weekend. half the
summer and for a week at
Christmas. That was the
arrangement Floyd and Jones
had worked out on their own,
even before lawyers became
involved in the divorce
proceedings.
Floyd had called DCF in
January of 1996 to report what
looked like cigarette burns on
Ciara's hands. Noegel was
apparently not involved in this
incident since he was not living
with Jones at the time. An aunt
was accused of having caused
the burns, but when a nurse
practitioner examined Ciara a
week later, she said the marks
looked like the childhood
disease impetigo. Joyner also
investigated this earlier incident.
After taking Ciara to the
hospital in June of 1996, Floyd's
visitations with his daughter
continued for several weeks
without incident. In July of
1996, an early-morning call to
the Floyd home informed the
family that Ciara had fallen off a
slide and had been lifeflighted to
Jacksonville.
Floyd and his family went to
the hospital where they found
that Ciara had suffered brain
damage, head and neck injuries,
a broken arm and injuries to her
ribs and stomach. She was in a
coma when the Floyd family
arrived. She never regained
consciousness.
When doctors told Floyd and
Jones that the child was brain-
dead and would likely never
regain consciousness, even if she
lived, the divorced parents made
the decision together to remove
her from life support.
Floyd held the child. in a
rocking chair as she died a short
time later.
Noegel was later determined
to be responsible for the injuries
that caused Ciara's death.
"Christmas was really hard,"
said the tearful father. "When it
gets to be Christmas time and
instead of figuring out what
you're going to buy someone for
Christmas, you're figuring out

Consumers
are urged to
check out
health clubs
Florida 'Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers
to check out health clubs
before joining or the only
thing they may lose is money.
Losing weight and getting in
shape is a top New Year's
resolution, but consumers who
are overeager to get started
might end up making an
unwise financial commitment
prior to-investigating a health
club. During the past year, 87
health clubs went out of
business, so it is important
that consumers are educated
about their rights.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services 'administers the Health
Studio law, which provides
consumers protection and
recourse against health clubs
that do not comply with the
law. All such facilities are
required to be registered with
the Department and many must
also post a bond to protect club
members in the event the
health studio goes out of
business.
"'I am a staunch proponent of
physical fitness, but consumers
who decide a health club is the,
way to. go should take a little
time to, check out a club prior
to signing a contract," Bronson
said. "There are more than
1,500 health clubs registered
with the Department and,
unfortunately, not all are able
to stay in business. Consumers
need to know what redress the\
have if a gym does close its
doors."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a
contract for several reasons
including: cancellation within
three days of signing a
contract, exclusive of holidays
and weekends, but it must be
done in writing; if the facility
moves more than five driving
miles away from the original
location and fails to provide,
within 30 days, a facility of
equal quality located, within the
five miles; if-a person becomes
physically unable to use most
of the services for which they
contracted, until the disability
ends. oim a,,ij a ;,*ia
Bronson i-lso recommends.
consumers T-olloW thesetps
before signing a contract:
Call the Department's
helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) to make sure


the health studio is registered
and to check its complaint
history.
Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the
Department, as most that
collect fees in advance are
required to do.
Prior to joining, ask
about the club's cancellation
policy should you move or
become physically unable to
use the facility.
Before signing up, visit
the club during the hours you
intend to use it to determine
whether it is overcrowded and
the equipment you plan to use
is available.
Find out if any of the
services offered require an
additional fee.
Bronson *said it is important
to read proposed contracts
thoroughly and make sure you
get all promises made by club
personnel in writing. Ask
questions to make sure you
understand the terms of your
membership.

I hear from all the time," Bass
said. "Then you have some you
don't hear from at all."
This year will also bring
about a change in Coleman's

expectations for their students


involved with these children,"

better."
As far as a personal goal,
Solano hopes to participate in a
couple of U.S. indoor track
meets this year and break the
world record in the 800-meter
run in his age group.
Something else Solano would
like to see in 2005 is more unity
among people in the
world-unity that was seen
after the events of Sept. 11,
2001 or that is being seen now
after the Indian Ocean tsunami,.
"I want to see' the world
coming together without having
to wait for a catastrophe to
happen," Solano said,

new year and I have high
expectations for this year."

see the kids come back

to see the students-return to


Renee Cassels


completing his five-year service
with the Marines in April,
Bryant said she hates to see a
tragedy (the Indian' Ocean
tsunami) be the focus at the
start of a new year, but she
hopes the incident causes other
oun.tri,,Pto yiew thew dned
States ,irn' more, positive
light-as a country killingg to
help out in any way it can.
, "We're a considerate country
and, hopefully, that's coming
across around the world-that
the United States is there when
there are tragedies," Bryant
said.
Starke Elementary teacher
Renee Cassels said her hopes
for 2005 are to" see her students
reach their full potential and for
her to do what is 'necessary to
meet their academic needs
She would also like to see
more cooperation between the,
community and the schools to
help educate children
"I feel like for education to
be successful, it starts with the
home,. the community and the
schools working together to
benefit the needs of the
children," Cassels said.
Cassels also has one general
wish for everybody in 2005:

putting forth hard work and
getting more out of sch:"' that
will help them later in life.
"Our kids. so many of them
want to come here and just be
entertained, or they want you to
do it all," Johnson said. "I
would like to see them more
self-motivated and setting goals
for themselves-even little
children-to prepare better for

One thing McClellan would
like to accomplish in '05 is to
read more.
"I always make that a New
Year's resolution," she said.
Johnson said she wants to be
more health conscious this year.
"I want to exercise, eat better
and be healthier," Johnson said,
Whitehead said she would
like to see people in this
country pull together and have
more faith in -God this year.
There is something else she


Barbara Brown

"I would love to see world

Bass anglers don't have to
hang up their fishing rods for

Florida's legendary large
mouths pretty much come
down with lockjaw when the,
weather gets too cool. Fall and

I hung a few bars of Ivory soap

Crepuscular
Ok, I get to use my new big
word, crepuscularr". Some
animals are most active during
the day; they are diurnal. Others
are more active at night; these,
are nocturnal. Deer, and a few
insects, birds, bats and such -
all are more. active at dusk or
dawn, when the light is lower,
mottled or -even twilight. They
are crepuscular.
The professionals who study
biological timekeeping believe
that there are light cues in certain
animals. For example, a deer's
eyes are much different from a
man's. 'Compare how, at night,
you, can sometimes see your
headlights reflected in a deer's
eyes, but not in a human's.
I So, if the deer moves around
more at dusk and dawn, this
should-be our best time to see
one.
A great theory, but, just like
you, I have seen many'deer in
the middle of the day and at all
times of the night. Perhaps these
are actually sleepwalking.
The chase goes on
So we hunters 'chase 'this
creature with weird sleeping
habits. We spend untold hours in
tree stand's and uncounted
money on every kind of gear
imaginable. And we do dream of
that beautiful 10-point rack on
the wall.
Why? I suppose it is so that we
can look up on the wall and tell
the story the rest of our natural
lives.
Hunter's tip for the week
Eat more carrots. Fact: The
carrot improves crepuscular
vision because it increases visual
acuteness. So, eating them up in
the stand at dusk or dawn
equalizes the playing, field.
Bring it on;'deer!
Warning:' Don't nobody out
there feed any carrots to the deer,
or none of us will ever get one!

Giving out food, receiving blessings


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Joanne Fussell received a


hug.
Moments of gratitude like
that are experienced almost
daily by those, like Fussell, who
volunteer their time to work at
the Bradford Ecumenical
Ministries Food Pantry in
Starke. Dennis O'Neal,
president of the Food Pantry,
said one volunteer told him:
"The people in need get the
food and the workers get the
blessings."
The Food Pantry is a non-
profit organization, staffed
entirely by volunteers, that
provides emergency food. It has
one major fundraiser every
year-the. Walk for
Hunger-but also relies heavily
on donations.
"We sustain ourselves on
contributions and the good-
heartedness of local people,
both in money and actual
collections of food," volunteer
Arley McRae said.
Since its inception in
February 1989, the Food Pantry
has provided food to 52,260
people (25,877 of which were
children) in Bradford County.
In 2004, the Food Pantry
provided 3,126 bags of food to.
6,069 people (3,100 children).
Repeat visitors to the Food
Pantry are included 'in those
totals. McRae said people are
allowed to obtain food once
every three months or twice in a
six-month period. -.
"As an emergency food
outlet, we do allow people to
have repeat visits because
people have repeat
emergencies," McRae said.
McRae has worked v. ith the
Food Pantry approximately
eight years-eight enjoyable
years.
"I've enjoyed every minute
of it," McRae said. "It's-just a
v oncerful miniStr .
The Food Pantry, which is
open Mn:tay-Thursday. 1-4
p.m. (with the. exception of
holi.da.s), is staffed by two or
three volunteers each day.
Fussell and her husband, David,
have been volunteering for
approximately two years.
"We can do it because we are
retired."' David Fussell said.
"It's our wa\ of helping."
Joanne Fussell said she
remembered handing food out
to one family Nhen a child in
the family. upon seeing the
food, exclaimed. "Oh, Mama,
we'%e got some good stuff."
It was a touching moment for
Joanne.
"It was just real special
because it's a trying time for
most people when the\ come
down here." she said. "It's like
you've hit bottom when you
come. It's just a little way we
can help people % ho have come
to the end of their rope.
The number of visitors the
Fussells or an\ volunteerss see
during the day can \ar). Joanne

people shoved up during her
first day as a volunteer. Fussell
said she brought a book with
her the next time, but she did
not have time to read it because
of the number of people who'
showed up to get food.!
"I would prefer that we have

a line waiting because you get
to see more people and you get,
to serve more people," she said.
"You can read the book another
day."
McRae said he recalls days
where more than 50 bags were
given out, but approximately 20
bags per day is what is usually
handed out.
"That would equate to
probably seven to nine
families," McRae said.
Many Food Pantry volunteers
come* from Bradford County
churches. There are six to seven
churches that comprise
Bradford Ecumenical Ministries
each year, but McRae said
other churches have also been
supportive.
"Even though they're not
members of Bradford
Ecumenical Ministries per se,
other churches have come
forward and. have been very
instrumental in helping us with
contributions, donations and
volunteers," McRae said. "It
really is a community effort."
The food that stocks the Food
Pantry comes from several
sources, one of the main ones
being Second Harvest, a
Lutheran outreach program
which has distribution centers
in Jacksonville and Gainesville.
McRae said most of the items
acquired from Second Harvest
are canned goods, though
sometimes cereal and pasta are
available. The Food Pantry pays
a handling fee, which is
currently .18 cents per pound, to
SSecond Harvest.
, The canned goods from
Second Harvest, which are
picked up once every nionth or
two, are considered the basic
food items people need in their
diets. The Food Pantry is also
able to prot ide other food items
with the help of Albertson's and
Publix grocery stores in
Gainesville that donate day-old
items .from their delicatessens,
such as fried chicken, salads,
bread, cakes and pastries.
"All of it is certainly edible
food," McRae said. "We watch
\ery carefully to triake sure the
breads and pastries don't go out
of condition."
Those food items are picked
up every Saturday and Sunday


morning by Floyd and Mary
Rainey. The couple goes to
three of the participating stores
each of those days.
People within Bradford
County have been very helpful,
as well. The Altrusa Club and
the post office participate in
food drives every year and the
county's schools have also been
a big help. That includes a
successful food drive by
Bradford High School's
National Honor Society
students and teacher Greg
Marshall.
,McRae said it would. have
been difficult for the Food


Pantry to survive this year
without the support of the:.
schools.
"We were really hurting as of
a month ago," McRae said.
"That's when the school system
came through big time for us."
Those donations really help
because it has become a chore
to find food from other food
banks such as Second Harvest.
"The food source has really
dried up considerably from
what it was to start, with," said
Thomas O'Brian, past president
of the Food Pantry.

O'Brian said the Food Pantry
once had to resort to purchasing
food from Dollar1 General,
ordering $200-$300 worth of
food every other month.
"Really, that was the main
thing that kept us going (at that
time)," O'Brian said.
McRae said the difference
between now and five or six

said. "Today it's not available
and when you do find it you're
going to pay a little biti more for
it, generally.
"Right now is a tough time
for us, but every time 'we think
we're going to have to .close the
door, somebody comue.s through

where it's coming 'from. It
comes from all different
directions."
Help may even co me from
people who once bIenefitted
