By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County Board of
County Commissioners took
the next step in its quest to
build a new library facility.
The commission approved
the purchase of 4. 834 acres for
a newlibrary to be built upon.
The lot is located at the corner
of SW Fifth Avenue and SW
Second Street in Lake.Butler.
According to records from the
Union County Property
Appraisers Office, the land
was owned by Rose Mary
Bankston and Marilyn Cason
of Fort White. The property.
was deeded to Bankston and
Cason from the Voncile Mole
Estate.
The land was purchased with
a $160,000 loan from Capital
City Bank in Starke. Union
County Public Library
Director Mary Brown said this
shows the county's comment
to building a new library.
"Taking this step will show the
residents of Union County we
are serious about this project,"
said Brown.
At the same time,' the
commission also approved a
final draft of the grant
application that the.county will
send to the State Library of
Florida. If approved and
funded, the grant will-provide
the county with up to $500,000


to help build the new facility.
It is estimated it will cost more
than $1 million to build the
facility.
__ The 41-page document
includes the history of the.


county's library, a
demographics and needs
assessment of the county and
an outline of the proposed new
facility. "This allows the state
library board to see where the


library has been and where it
plans to go," said Brown.
The history section tells of
the library's humble
beginnings in 1989. It explains
how the county commission


oversees the library and how it
has helped its steady and
consistent growth. It also
explains how the library joined
the New River Public Library
Cooperative in 1996 to better
serve its patrons.
The demographics and needs
assessment t section. details the
need for a new facility.
According to the University of
Florida's Bureau of Business
and Economic Research
statics, more than 10,000
people currently reside in the
county. Those same statics
predict that in just 10 years,
more than 16,000 people will
reside in the county. These
estimates d--not-include-the.
more than 4,000 inmates that
reside in prisons throughout
the county.
Because. of these figures,
Consultants Gerard McCabe

Union County horse contracts EEE


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County Health --
Department has confirmed that
a horse in Raiford contracted
both Eastern Equine
Encephalitis (EEE) and West
Nile Virus (WNV).
This is the first confirmed
case in the state this year. On
Marcl, 22, lab testing
confirmed the three-year-old
horse had both EEE and WNV.
An unnamed veterinarian
brought the case to the
attention of health department
officials. Because of the
findings, .the horse was
euthanized.
According to the Center for
Disease Control (CDC) in
Atlanta, Ga., EEE is
transmitted to humans and
horses through the bite of an
infected mosquito. EEE's main
transmission cycle is between
mosquitoes and birds. If
infected, both humans and
horses can die from the
disease.
EEE attacks the central
nervous system of horses. The
onset of the disease is sudden
and nearly all cases are fatal.



Early symptoms of EEE in
horses model that of rabies or
WNV. Other symptoms
include, unsteadiness, .erratic
behavior and a loss of
coordination.
EEE can infect people of all
ages. Effects of the disease in
humans can be mild serious or
even fatal. Most people
infected with "EEE do not
become ill. If they do,
symptoms mirror those of
influenza. Fever, headache and
sore throat can also be
associated with the disease.
It is rare for a human's
central nervous system to be
affected. If a person's central
nervous system is affected,
sudden fever, muscle pains and
a headache of increasing
severity often followed by
seizures and coma are the
result.
According to the CDC,
approximately 50 percent all
these cases are fatal.
Approximately 35 percent of
those who do survive the
disease are left with permanent
brain damage. Young children
and the elderly are at most risk
from this from of the disease.
Symptoms in humans usually


occur from four to 10 days
after being bitten by an
infected mosquito.
,. There is ,no licensed, vaccine
for human use, which makes
controlling the disease
difficult. Once infected, there
are no known effective
therapeutic drugs to cure
humans. Limited financial
support as well as not knowing
the cycle of the disease in the
winter time has made the
disease difficult for the CDC to
control.
Currently the CDC's priority
is to develop and evaluate
vaccines for the disease. They
are attempting to develop and
evaluate therapeutic drugs,
improve diagnostic and virus
detection tests and improve
predictive capabilities as well.
CDC keeps tabs on cases-of
EEE throughl--the National
Notifi ib-le Diseases
Surveillance System. In 2003,
it- began_ testing a system
known as Arbonet. It is -a
national, electronic
surveillance system established
by CDC to assist states in
tracking WNV and other
mosquito-borne virus such as
EEE.


Since 1964 the CDC has 200
confirmed cases of EEE in
humans. States with the largest
number-,of. -cases are-Florida,
Georgia, Massachusetts and
New Jersey. The center
averages approximately four
cases per year, but has seen as
many as 14 cases in one year.
According to the CDC, more
cases do not occur because the
primary transmission cycle
takes place in swamp areas
where populations tend to be
limited.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging
horse owners to have their
animals vaccinated against
mosquito-borne illness. "Horse
owners have done a good job
in getting their animals
properly vaccinated over the
past few years and we have
seen a significant drop in the
number of equine WNV
cases," said'Bronson. "But it is
critical t at-we-don't-become
complacent. Mosquito season
is upon us and the chances of
contracting these disease have,
of course, increased. Horse
owners are reminded that their


animals' vaccinations must be
up to date, including the
necessary booster shots."
In 2004, 48 cases of EEE in
horses were confirmed. Six
cases of WNV were confirmed
in that same year. In 2002, just
less than 500 cases of WNV
were reported. Vaccinations
for WNV became available in
2001, while the EEE vaccine
has been around for years.
The Union County Health
Department is urging all
residents to take precautions to
avoid mosquito 'bites. They,.
recommend the following five-
D's:
Dusk and Dawn-Avoid
being outdoors when
mosquitos are seeking blood,
for many. species this is during
the dusk and dawn hours.
Dress-Wear clothing that
covers the skin, loose fitting,
long sleeve shirts and pants.
DEET-When the
potential exists for exposure to
mosquitos, repellents
--containing DEET are generally
recommended. Prfducts--with--
concentrations up to 30 percent

Union Power Equipment celebrates grand reopening


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
A larger showroom, a
bigger parts department and
larger service bays gave Union
Power Equipment a reason to
celebrate April 2.
Last-Saturday the company
celebrated its grand reopening
and conducted an open house
for all its patrons. "The new
facility has given us more than
triple the area we had before,"
said Parts Manager Danny
Plumlee. He said the company
has been able to double the.
amount of parts it previously
had on hand.
The celebration included
food, door prizes and an extra.
special savings on equipment
throughout the store. Owners
Larry and Nancy Hendricks
opened the facility to give
customers a look at their fresh
new appearance. Cathy
Hoover, Ann Hendricks and
Chuck Touchstone helped the
Hendricks cook for the more
than 100 customers that came
out.
Will Dettor, football and
weight lifting coach at Union


County High School won the
days largest door prize. Dettor
walked away with a weedeater
courtesy of Union Power
Equipment. Other door prizes
included a basket from Cathy
Snyder at Books and
Birthdays, T-shirts and hats.
In October the company
moved from its location on
South~ Main--Street -inLake_
Butler to its new location on
SR-121 one-half mile north of
Hardees. The shell of the
building was- built by Union
Lasteel Metal Buildings, "but
we did everything else," said
Larry Handricks. Hendricks,
along with his entire staff,
would work on mowers in the
daytime and work on the
building at night. It took the
crew more than three months
to complete the work.
The 1,800 square-foot
facility has given Hendrick's
crew a lot more room to do
everything. The expanded
showroom is air-conditioned
for customer comfort. An
expanded service bay allows
the company -to' work on more

accommodated in a 10,000
square-foot building."
The outline for the facility,
also known as the building
program, gives the state library
an idea of how the county
plans to lay out the new
facility. For example, the
proposed meeting room of the
library would encompass 710
square feet. The description
also gives details on how the
room could be used, what
requirements it must meet and
the possible contents of the
room.
'According to the grant, the
:proposed meeting room would
be divisible into at least two
:parts, have a hearing assistance
-system and a kitchen area.
Other features include a built-
,in public address system, a
recessed' ceiling projection
.,system and wireless computing
Ionline connectivity.
More than 3,000 square feet
is designated for the library's
main purpose-the housing of
books. The children's section
will have a proposed 1,104
square feet, while the adult and.
young adult section will house
1,968 square feet of the
library's collection of stories.
This space will allow the new
facility to house more than
34,000 volumes of books in
all.
While these plans are an idea
of what the county iiifends to
build, it does not have to
follow them exactly. "These
plans are-not set in stone," said
Brown. An architect, which is
yet to be chosen, will help the
county bring its wants and
needs into a three dimensional
form. "At that point we will
pretty much know where we
are at as far as what exactly
will happen," said Brown.

Helping to bridge
the gap
While the sale of the old
library building will help close
"some of the gap in needed,
funds, Brown said she is
,'committed to see this through
to the.- ed. "We have already
begun th; process .of raising
the funds" necessary to build
this new facility," said Brown.
On March 19, the library held
its first fund-raising event. The
Library Fun-D Fqtivalhelped q.
raise awareness of the county's
Plans.
Brown said she has several
fund-raising ideas the library
,.will .use to bridge the gap. "We
will have fund-raising events
I-until we achieve our goal,"
said Brown. She said that goal
is to see a new library facility.
Throughout the month of
May, the library will accept
I donations for a rummage sale
I--it will hold on Saturday, June
4. On July 25, the library will
help kick-off the football
season by selling dinners.
One big fund-raiser Brown
said she has planned will
S.involve a mural inside the new
facility. "We are going to have
a tree and donors will be able
to buy pieces of it," said
Brown. Different levels of
donations will get donors
names put on different parts of
'the tree. Brown said she is still
working on the details of how
mmuch each section will cost.
While Brown has a difficult.
'task in front of her, she is by
;no means a stranger to fund-
raising activities. Along with
4 her library duties, Brown is the
director of the Toys for Kids
Program each Christmas
season. The program provides
;toys to children of
underprivileged families that
would not otherwise receive a
gift. Theprogram is funded by
donations from local
businesses and individuals.

equipment as well. The new
facility has even given
customers more room to park.
"Its just an overall better set-
up," said Hendricks.
Union Power Equipment
services a full range of lawn
equipment. The company is an
authorized service center for
both Snapper and Echo brand
products. They also sell
Kawasaki and Tecumseh as
well. "We will work on almost
any type on power equipment
our customers bring us," said
Plumlee. The facility is open
Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:30
p.m., and Saturdays, from 8
a.m. to 1 p.m.
When asked if recent rains
had increased the company's
business Plumlee said it started
more. than a month ago. "Our
customers have gotten an early
'jump on mowing season this
year," said Plumlee. "We
really never had that big of a
downturn."
During last year's hurricane
season, Plumlee said the
company worked on nothing
but chainsaws and generators
for weeks at a time. "By the
time we got caught up with
those repairs, it was lawn
mowing season again," said
Plumlee.
Hendricks said the company
will be ready this hurricane
season with a large supply of
generators. "We wan. to be
ready to meet our customers
needs," said Hendricks.
Dr. William Grays one of
the country's foremost experts
on hurricane predictions, has
predicted a more active
hurricane season than last
year's. Gray has predicted the
Atlantic Coast will see 11
named storms during the 2005
season.
Of those, six will become
hurricanes. Of those six, three
of them will be major storms:
Gray has also predicted that
there is a 50 percent chance
that one of those major storms
will impact the East Coast.
"Now is the time to get your
equipment in good working
order," said Hendricks. As
busy as .they have been,
Hendricks predicts that -if a
storm were to come Union
County's way, those whose
equipment was not working
.,would beTin .for a. long wait.
"'After last year, nobody wants
to go days without any power,'"
said Hendricks..

A sobering reminder


- This wrecked Ford Ranger was placed in front of Union County High School to
remind prom-goers of what the consequences could be if they choose to drink and
drive. The organization Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)
sponsored the display. Throughout the week, SADD sponsored several events to
remind students that drinking and driving did not mix. A Ghost Out and tying
orange ribbons to classroom doors are just two of the events the group used to
try Influence students to remain alcohol free. To help the group get its message
across, the city of Lake Butler proclaimed April 1-3 alcohol abstinence weekend
in the city. The truck was furnished by T and M Towing of Starke.

Worthington Springs VFO


A donation in the name of Clanton.
Scaff provided the Worthington Springs
Volunteer Fire Department with a new
fire engine.
Engine three was purchased from the
Beukendahl fire department in New York.
The 1977 American LaFrance engine will
be utilized as a frontline fire engine. All
funding for the purchase of the truck was
provided by a donation from the Scaff
family in the name of Clanton Scaff,
Thanks to the efforts of Chief J.P. Harn
and the generosity of the fire department
in Beukendahl, N.Y. for arranging this
- acquisition.
A second engine was donated by the
city of Alachua. The engine was moth-
balled a number of years ago when
Alachua County took over fire protection


for the city of Alachua. Lt. Jeff Amlong
worked with the city of Alachua to pro-
cure the truck.
Thanks to Frank Sodek, Clovis Watson
Jr., Pat Murphy and the city of Alachua
for helping to arrange the donation. The
1980 E-One fire engine will be-utilized as
a second-line engine, and a crash and res-
cue truck.
A Ford F-250 was donated by the
Boyette family and after some modifica-
tions will replace the brush truck current-
ly stationed in Worthington Springs. The
1980 Ford F-250 will be a great asset.
.The acquisition and placement in serv-
ice of the two engines has taken over 18
months. There were many people
involved in the effort and these vehicles
should provide service to our community
for many years to come
Special thanks again to the Scaff fami-
ly.

LBVFD gets ready for

tournament/cook-off


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer


Think your chicken and rice
recipe is the best in Union
County? Well here's your
chance to prove it.
On Saturday, May 7, the
Lake Butler Volunteer Fire
Department (LBVFD) will
hold its fifth annual Chicken-
N-Rice cook-off and fishing
tournament. Mike Pittman,
winner of the 2002 and 2003
cook-off titles said he is out .to
reclaim his title this year.
During the 2004 event, Matt
Wilder took the trophy for the
best chicken and rice in the
county. Pittman said its time to
bring the trophy back to the
Pittman household once again.
"I'm challenging everyone to
bring out their best recipe,"
said Pittman.
The entry fee for the contest
is only $5. Contestants must
make a minimum of 10 cooked
pounds of chicken and rice to
enter the contest. There will be
no provisions to cook your
entry at the contest. All
creations will become the
property of the LBVFD. At
stake will be a trophy and a
year's worth of bragging
rights. Entries must be taken to
the Lakeside Community
Center no later than 10:45 a.m.
on May 7. The contest is open
to anyone, and all .entries are
Invited. ... .
The fishing tournament will
be conducted under the rules
played out by the Florida Game
and Freshwater Fish
Commission. Entry fee is $15

old and younger can enter the
contest for $10. Contestants
,will be able to launch their
boats beginning at 4 a.m. The
tournament will begin when
officials feel there is enough
safe light to do so.
Weigh-in will be conducted
at 11 a.m. Contestants will be
allowed to weigh-in any time
before that deadline.
Contestants will only be
allowed one weigh-in.
Prizes will be awarded in
several different areas. The
fisherman with the largest
bass, panfish and catfish will
land a trophy, prizes and cash.
The fisherman that brings in
the most pounds of either bass,
panfish or catfish will receive
the same. He or she with the
second most pounds will
receive prize and a trophy.
Third place will receive a prize
as well. The largest sunshine
bass and trashfish (gar, jack,
mudfish or shiner) will net the
catcher a prize as well.
"This is our largest fund
raiser of the year," said
LBVFD Chief Mike Banks.
All proceeds will benefit the
LBVFD. The department
conducts fund-raisers each
year to help defray the cost of
new equipment, maintaince
and training. "It helps us buy
equipment to better protect the
citizens of Lake Butler and
Union County," said Banks.

Above: Union County paramedic Kevin Stripkland gets
information from accident victim Chris Hall. On April
5, Hall was driving north on SR-121, just past the
Union County/Baker County line, when his car left the
roadway. Hall attempted to put the car back on the
roadway and overcorrected. The move pushed his car
across the southbound lane and into a pine tree.
While Hall was visibly shaken by the accident, he was
not seriously injured.


Scholarship
program
reduces


turnover
More than 2800 early
childhood professionals
received scholarships to attend
college through the Florida,
TEACH, Early Childhood
program during 2003-2004.
Early childhood teachers
who received college
scholarships through the
TEACH program took more_-
college courses, received better
pay- and generally stayed
longer in their child care
programs, according' to a
report released recently by the
Child Care Services
Association (CCSA).
-In the report, the TEACH
Early Childhood and Child
PCare Wages Projects: Helping
Meet the Demand for
T-omorrow's Workforce Today
2003-04 Annual Program
Report, the CCSA highlighted
the latest accomplishments of
these programs. Together, the
TEACH Early Childhood and
Child Care Wages projects
work to increase the education,
compensation and retention of
early childhood professionals
in Florida as well as 22 states
nationwide.
-"Improvements in the child
care work force foster positive
outcomes for children, leading
to greater successes in school
and greater opportunities for
the economic success of
families and businesses," said
Sue Russell, president of- the
CCSA. "By "sending teachers
of young children back to
school, the TEACH project
helps improve the quality of
early 'education nationwide.
Parents can go to work, and
children can learn."
During the past year, the
TEACH Early Childhood
Project awarded more than
18,500 scholarships nationally.
The CCSA is in the process of
talking to additional states
about implementing the
program. The WAGE Project
is available in four states.
Both have strong records of
reducing turnover in the early
care and education industry. In
Florida, the TEACH Program
boasts a turnover rate of less
than eight percent afid the
WAGEs Florida Project has a
five percent turnover-both
substantially lower than the
national average of 30 to 40
percent.
"Because of- our -proven
outcomes, states increasing
their investment in pre-
kindergarten programs often


look to the TEACH and
WAGES projects as effective
strategies to support the early
childhood work force," said
Russell. "These projects help
child care businesses keep
their best early childhood
professionals, which is good
for business and good for the
children and their families they
serve."
According to the report,
TEACH scholarships helped
build the capacity of higher
education systems in
participating states by
increasing the demand for
- coursework. "TEACH is
paving the way .-with
institutions of higher
education," said Helen Blank,
senior fellow at the National
Women's Law Center, and
member of the TEACH Early
Childhood National Advisory
Committee.
"Those systems have
responded by creating not only
more courses but also a more
flexible and therefore
responsive system designed to
meet the needs of adult
learners, many of whom are
employed full-time and have
never been to college."
The Child Care WAGES
Florida Project provides salary
supplements tied to
educational attainment. More
than 318 early childhood
professionals were awarded
salary supplements during the
2003-2004 fiscal year. Because
of the program's success,
continuity of care 'for these
children improved
dramatically.
"Because salary supplements
are tied to the completion of
college credit hours,
certificates and degrees
WAGES participants represent
an educated segment of the
workforce," said Allison
Miller, vice president of
compensation initiatives at the
CCSA. "They have more
opportunities than their
colleagues to receive higher
pat through other employment,
.yet their retention rate in the
field is impressively high."
TEACH and WAGES
projects nationwide are
supported by the TEACH
Early Childhood Technical
Assistance and Quality
Assurance Center, which
recently secured additional
funding from the Annie E.
Casey Foundation. These
funds will allow the Center to
continue services for currently
participating states and help,
other states bring TEACH or
WAGES to their state.
The Florida Children's
Forum is the statewide
administrator for the Florida
TEACH Early Childhood


Scholarship program and the
Child Care EAGWS Florida
Project.
The CCSA provides free
referral services to families
seeking child care, technical
assistance to care businesses
and educational scholarships
and salary supplements to
child care professionals
through the TEACH Early
Childhood and Child Care
WAGES Projects. The CCSA
licenses its programs to states
across the country and
provides consultation and
guidance to others seeking to
solve child care concerns.

LRM Editor


The 2005 Bradford County Fair is honoring the memory of volunteer Mike Scott by
operating under the theme of "Service With a Smile." Fair Manager Chub Johnson
(far right) stands with some of Scott's family members, who participated in ribbon-
cutting ceremonies. Pictured up front with Johnson are Scott's wife, Lisa, daughter
Melissa, daughter Diane, father, Lamar, and mother, Juanita. Other family members
pictured include Jimmy Scott (brother) and his wife, Martha, Rachel Starling (niece)
and her husband, Tommy, Sarah Swords (niece) and Joshua Scott (nephew).



Fair officialyopens in


remembrance of Scott


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

The 2005 .Bradford County
*Fair held its official opening as
it usually does on
;Tuesda,-with a ribbon-cutting-
ceremony as usual on Tuesday.
What was different this time
around was that two ribbons
:were cut.
One ribbon, .as is done every,
year, was cut by the recently
crowned Strawberry Queen
Megan Giebeig and Strawberrm
Princess Celeste Wilson. The
second ribbon %%as cut b)
faWfity menrbert'f Mike 'ScKtt,
who died Nov. 28, 2004.
Scott spent many volunteer
hours working with the
Bradford Fair Association and it
is with him in mind that this



Woman's
killer
executed
Tuesday
Death row inmate Glen Ocha
was put to death April 5 for the
1999 killing of Carol Skjerva.
Ocha ended his quest to die
after being arrested for the
strangulation of a woman who
gave him a ride home from a
bar.
The 47-year-old man pled
guilty to the Oct. 5, 1999
killing of Skjerva, 28, who
was working at a convenience
store.
Ocha met Skjerva at a bar in
Kissimmee, where he was
employed engraving beer
mugs. He was drunk and high
on Ecstasy when she drove him
home to Buenaventura Lakes
and they had intercourse,
according, to court documents.
When Skjerva told Ocha she
was going to tell her boyfriend
and made fun of his anatomy,
he became enraged.
He made her sit in a chair and
gathered some rope from his
garage before strangling her
three times until his arms
began tiring. Then he hanged
Skjerva from a kitchen door
and drank a beer while she died.
After hiding her body in a
home entertainment system in
his garage, Ocha took
Skjerva's car and drove to
Daytona Beach. When he was
arrested for disorderly
intoxication, he confessed to
'killing the woman.
Ocha would not let a public
defender present evidence to try
and avoid execution. In a letter
to the Assistant Attorney
General Stephen D. Ake. Ocha
asked that his execution be
carried out without delays. "Sir
I wish for my execution to
come swift and unhampered."
Ocha died from a lethal
injection at 6-10-p.m.
Ocha was the 60th person
executed in Florida since the
1976 reinstatement of the death
penalty and the first since May
26. when John Blackwelder
was so intent on being
executed that he killed a fellow
inmate and pled guilty.

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, April 7, 2005 Page 4B


Thoughts on a Thursday morning


Not just any Thursday, of course, but
today has a special significance to
people around the world who believe
in the sanctity of human life, and that
death is the enemy to be avoidedat all
costs, until such time that the Giver of'
life makes the call.
Terri Schiavo died this morning
(Thursday, March 31) after having
gone without food or water forl 3 days.
Her death was not unexpected;. her
feeding tube was removed for the
specific reason to hasten her departure
from 'this world. -While husband
' Michael Schiavo is 'pleased, her
parents and her siblings are grieving.
Many people.-share their frustration in
Michael Schiavo's actions and
American jurisprudence.
Michael played his part in the drama
quite well, posing as Dr. Jekyll during
the courtship and early days of -their
marriage. For the past 10 years, after
receiving and spending $1.5 million in,
a malpractice suit, he. became- the
epitomel of Mr. Hyde, and sought her
death through legal means. Some of his
actions were downright mean, such as
his 'refusal this morning to allow the
Schindlers to be with their daughter as
she died..
The American court system, eager to


prove .its independence, threw out
ethics and precedence in accepting
Michael's statement that Terri had said
in his presence that she would not want
-to live if hope were gone.
That statement is hearsay evidence
and is not acceptable in criminal cases;
it should not have been accepted in the
Schiavo case.
Several questions haunt me. When
did the United States begin
condemning people to death for
becoming unproductive? Thousands of
people in homes, institutions and
prisons are being kept alive with public
monies, so how does one more person
on the roll harm anyone? While alive,
even though comatose, she brought a
degree of pleasure to her parents and
siblings. Why break their hearts and
cause them further grief just to prove
the courts are subservient to no one?
The courts, at all levels, are essential
to our nation's well-being, and need to
function without fear or favor, but
recent decisions have bruised the fabric
of our lives. The courts should restrict
their findings to a narrow range of truth
and fairness and refrain from
legislation by fiat.
They should have listened to Mama.

Zoning board
commended
Dear Editor:
The Bradford County Zoning
Board should be commended for
listening to the many citizens
of the Hampton Lake area and
Hampton Police chief John
Hodges, who gave many good
reasons why the zoning of the
12 acre plot directly south of
the Gate store and gas station
on 301 should not be changed
from Family-Mobile Home I
to Commercial Intensive.
Now it is up to the county
commissioners to decide at
their next meeting on
Thursday, April '21. I hope
they make the right decision
this time. It has been presented
to them several times already.

Deborah Sperlich is a highly

nearly important enough for her
to jeopardize, not only her

I Bradford Co. jail officer arrested


By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford County
Sheriff's Office notified media
this week that one of its own
has been arrested.
Jail correctional officer Terry
Jenkins of Hampton was
arrested by the Federal Bureau
of Investigation Friday, April 1,
following an investigation into
allegations that Jenkins
unnecessarily struck an inmate.
Jenkins is said to have
isolated the inmate, then hit him
in the face and kicked him in
the torso.
The arresting agents took
Jenkins to Jacksonville where
he was later released on a
$25,000 bond from the federal
courthouse.
Jenkins has worked part time
for the Bradford County Jail
since 2001 and full time for the
Florida Department of
Corrections since 1995.
Court records indicate the
inmate, with a criminal history
of multiple convictions that
include aggravated battery,
burglary and kidnapping,
sustained a "large black eye."
Outside of the FBI, this seems
to be all. that is known about the
inmate. Even Sheriff Bob
Milner said he didn't know the
inmate's identity.
A decision about Jenkins'
continued employment has not
yet been made. He has been
suspended without pay, and
Milner said that in all
probability the situation will
end in Jenkins' termination,
although.he wanted to avoid a
"knee-jerk reaction."

Charges could be brought
against additional officers as
well. That will be subject of a
grand jury hearing convened
this week in' Jacksonville.
Milner said he knew of officers
and inmates who have been
called to testify, but he has not
been called.
Although his office has been
silent so far regarding the
investigation, Milner
announced that an FBI probe
into allegations of abuse at the
jail has been ongoing since
October of last year.
Complaints were received by
the FBI from former inmates
and their families, and the
investigation has included
reviews- of documents and video
tapes kept by the sheriff's
office.
Milner said it was his own'
request that the FBI investigate
another incident at the jail that
resulted in the firing of two
veteran correctional officers
earlier this year. Sgt. Dana
Morgan and correctional officer
Jason Clark were terminated
after a review of allegations
determined both had prior
knowledge an inmate-on-inmate
assault was going to take place
but did not intervene.
The incident also resulted in
three inmates being charged
with battery in an assault on a
fourth inmate.
The Clay County Sheriff's
Office was originally asked to
conduct an internal
investigation because, of
Bradford County's lack of a
qualified internal affairs officer.
Milner asked the FBI to step in
when the possibility of criminal
charges being filed arose.


'I wanted them to include
this in their investigation. If
I've got anything that we need
to know that we don't have
positive proof on already; I
want it ferreted out right now.
Let's get all the laundry out at
one time, clean it up so this
thing doesn't drag on," he said.
Milner is attributing these
incidents to the stressful
conditions officers face at the
jail, being confronted daily with
abusive and threatening
situations brought about by
inmates. Nevertheless, he said,
he and his employees want to
see the investigation move
forward with successful results.


"While it's frustrating and
embarrassing that some
correctional officers cross the
line in dealing with inmates,
every employee with integrity
wants to see this investigation
completed quickly and any bad
apples removed," Milner said.
While it may look bad for the
department, Milner was quick
to stand by the reputations of
most of his officers.
"The overwhelming majority
of officers are men and women
of good moral character who do'
not deserve to be tainted with a
broad brush because of bad
decisions by a few," he said.


Humility leads to strength and not to weakness. It is the
highest form of self-respect to admit mistakes and to make
amends for them.
-John J. McCloy
The best advice I can give to any young man pr young
woman upon graduation from school can be summed up in
exactly eight words, and they are-be honest with yourself
and tell the truth.

Hurricane debris is


adding fuel to fire season


With the approach of drier
weather during the next couple
of months, University of
Florida forestry experts warn
that many areas of the state
could experience a severe fire
season in areas hit hard by the
2004 hurricanes.
Hurricanes Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne damaged or
destroyed more than 7 million
acres of forest in 34 counties,
creating conditions on the
ground that could fuel wildfires
that are more intense and
widespread, said Richard
Williams, an associate'professor
of forestry with UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or UF/IFAS.
"Of course, it all depends on
the weather as we enter the
usual dry period between April
and June," Williams said. "The
reason we are so concerned
about fires this year is that the
storms added tons of trees,
limbs, pine needles and leaves
that are now on or close to the,
forest floor."
Some trees were knocked
down by the storms while
others are broken or bent over
so that the entire crown area is
within easy -reach of a fire
burning on the forest floor.
"With all this added fuel, we
expect that fires will bum hotter
than in other years,". he said.,
Williams, based at UF's West
Florida Research and Education
Center in Milton, said crews
have been working statewide to
remove downed and broken

trees from forested areas, but
the task is hard to complete in
some forest areas because of .
time and resource constraints.
Even small amounts of plant-
material on the forest floor can
make fires more severe, he said.
"If these forests have not been
salvage-harvested by now, that
additional vegetative matter
will, provide .a substantial
increase in fuels for wildfires."
In the forests of central and,
north Florida, the added fuel
will create greater hazards for
fire fighters, Williams said.


"We are looking at some very
dangerous situations if fire
breaks out in these areas," he
said. "In areas with many
downed trees, fire fighters
could get boxed in by fires with
little room for escape. And to
,make matters more difficult,
intense smoke will reduce
visibility."
In addition, the movement of
tractors and other heavy
equipment fire fighters need
could be hindered by forest

intervention program, this is
wrong.
A woman who has
extierienced domestic abuse
needs to be empowered to make
geo-d choices for herself. but
she is not responsible for any
other adult.
Just because a woman is a
victim of domestic abuse does
not make her an unfit parent.
Just because this same woman
still loves her abuser does not
'make her a bad person.
Let's respect her, hate:
Sc inpassion on her,_ andhelp-
het by letting her set.
boundaries for keeping herself
and her children safe.
The best gift we can offer a
Victim of domestic abuse is
support, both individually and _
community wide. Let's not be
guilty of revictimizing a
- woman who is -already
suffering from her own guilt,
low self-esteem and the pain of
being abused by an intimate
partner who claims to love her.
Domestic violence is a
crime, so let's hold the batterer
accountable for this crime.

Alan Long, an associate
professor in the UF/IFAS
School of Forest Resources and
--nser-ation_" said- that
residents who live in or near
heavily forested areas that %ere
impacted by the hurricanes
should clear damaged trees or
debris, if they have not done so
alreadN.
If the trees and debris cannot
be removed from the property,
cut them up and mo'e them as
far away from any structures as
possible, he said. Residents
should also avoid burning
debris on dry or windy days.
:"Depending on the weather
during the next few months,
these worst-case scenarios may
not happen, but all the'
ingredients are in place for a
difficult fire season," Long
said. -
For more information on
clearing damaged trees or other
debris, contact your local

Year is a disappointment for Bradford strawberries


By ARNIE HARRIS
LRM Staff Writer

"This has been the worst I've
seen in 75 years," said James
"J.R." Wainwrigt, F0-year-old
family patriarch of the family's
strawberry business. Judging bN
comments of Wainwright's
fellow Bradford growers, this
bleak statement vas no mere
exaggeration.
He certainly\ would get no
argument from Budd) Norman
as to the utter disaster that has
befallen this year's strawberry
crop. "I''e been growip.
strawberries for 53 years," said
Norman, "and this is by far the
worst I've ever seen. I've seen
it wet before, but this time the
rain hit us at the wrong time, in
late February, and it ain't e'er
quit," said Norman. "1 doubt %we
can get one good berry out of
10 picked."
In Lawtey, grower Julia
Pendarvis, and her husband and

business partner Fred, echoed
this dire assessment. Julia
Pendarvis said that this year's
unusual spell of cold, wet and
windy weather has so far taken


its toll on this year's crop,
hampering growth and breeding
the overwhelming blight of fruit
rot. Pendarvis predicts that this
year's output will probably be


somewhere from 20-25 percent
less than last year's.
The effect of this year's
calamity has been to' bring the
price of the average flat of


strawberries down, said
Norman, whereas they were
selling for a substantially higher
price back in January and
February, before the onset of


bad weather.

by Wil Breton's single.
Brandon Hayes, who led off
the fourth inning with a double,
scored the Indians' last run. He
was forced home when Trae
Jolley drew a walk with the
bases loaded.
The Tigers' lone run came on
Brandon Davis' home run in the
third inning, but they wasted an
opportunity to put more runs on
the board in the fifth inning.
Michael Johnson and Davis
hit back-to-back singles to lead
off the fifth. The two runners
were at the comers with Miles
Leslie at the plate and no outs
when Davis was caught ,in a
rundown between first and
second. The Indians tagged
Davis out, then caught Johnson
trying to steal home op the play.
That left no one on base when
Leslie hit a double.
Comeau forced Tyler
O'Steen to ground out to end
the inning.
It was. the second straight
district win for Keystone
following an 11-1 loss to
district opponent Bradford (see
related story). Prior to playing
Union, the Indians defeated
district opponent Interlachen 4-
3 thanks to Tyler'Richardson
driving in two runs with a
single in the bottom of the
sixth.
The Indians were down 3-2
when Richardson delivered his
clutch hit with two outs.
It was a better defensive
performance from Keystone, ,
which committed no errors after
committing six in the loss to
Bradford...
Lott picked up the win on the
mound, improving his record to
3-0. His second win of the
season came in a 7-5 win over
Clay on March 24.

was grower Bud Crawford.
Crawford too has suffered from
the uncooperative weather, he
said, including losing countless
strawberries to a recent
hailstorm. "Hail in March," he
said in exasperation and
disbelief, "I've never seen
anything like it."
Despite his own misfortune,
he expressed sympathy for
fellow growers whom he said
were all but distraught over the
situation. Growers must recoup
their original growing expenses,
which can run from $3,500-
$4,500 an acre, by- Easter or
they will be lucky if they break
even by the end of the growing
season, Crawford said.


Unfortunately, he added, mqst
Bradford growers have not been:
able to manage that feat.
Norman wearily shared
Crawford's gloomy assessment.-
"We'll be lucky to break even-
and get our rfioney back by
season's end," said Norman.
Asked whether he believed
that this year was just art
unfortunate fluke and things
would be better next year,
Norman said that from what he
has seen in recent years, he,
thinks that there is more to the
talk of climate change than
many people think.
"To be honest with you, I.
really believe mankind is'
destroying itself with the way
we're fouling our own nest,',
said Norman..

Springtime

outdoors


By JOHN WHITFIELD
SContributing Outdoors Editor
There is great news on two
related items-the water is
steadily flowing back into Lake


Brooklyn from Alligator Creek
and, on March 29, Vince Parker
caught a huge bass weighing 11
pounds, 6 ounces in Lake
Brooklyn. (see accompanying
photo).
Congratulations, Vince' That"
was a beautiful fish-that,
largemouth could have easily
swallo ed a softball.
Most of us around Keystone
haven't seen many bass at all
from either Lake Brooklyn or
Little Lake Brooklyn since the
water went. down during the
previous droughts. It is
encouraging to see things
happening again.

Tommy Fowler's bass
Tommy Fowler, a 15-year-
ol l-Keystone Heighls;-'Hii.g-
School student, caught a really
nice 10-pound bass on March
28. Sabrina Williams, Tommy's
mother, related that Tommy
:caught his fish on a wild shiner
while fishing from a paddleboat


around 5 p.m. that evening. He
was fishing in a private, spring-
fed pond in Clay County.
The bass was 26 inches long
and Tommy is having it
mounted.
Way to go, Tommy.

Spring gobblers
On Good Friday, both Scott
Kicklighter and Caleb Whitfield
harvested nice spring gobblers.
According to Scott, his bird
was on the ground by about
6:'30 and weighed 19 pounds
with a 9.5-inch beard. Scott said
he saw fiv& or six birds
together, including one hen that
almost landed on Scott when
she flew .in.
Caleb's bird-his first wild
turkey--weighed 20 pounds
(yes, he let Scott know that his
bird was a pound heavier). It
was harvested at 6:42 a.m. and
actually was shock-gobbled by
some timely lightning and
thunder-rolls several times.
Caleb knew right where the
bird was the whole hunt and
patiently waited until the tom
strutted into range at about 25
yards, right at the decoys. Caleb
.was hunting with his dad'on
private property.
The bird strutted, turned a
half circle and then dropped its
feathers for a curious look.
Boom!
And it wasn't thunder. Not
natural -thunder,.. anyway-1.2,

Now that's a shock gobble!
