Lake Butler Elementary gets A grade


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer


Lake Butler Elementary
School (LBES) has something
to be very proud of.
A recent release from the
Florida Department of
Education (DOE) finds that the
school earned an A for its-2005
school grade. "We are
absolutely ecstatic about our
students' test scores this year
and our resulting school grade
of A," said LBES Principal
Linda Johns. "Our teachers and
staff have committed
themselves to the achievement
of every child in reading and
math."
Johns credits not only
teachers and staff for the
grade, but the community as
well. "This accomplishment
would not have been possible
without the support and
involvement of parents and
community members," said


Audit finds

city can

improve

By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
An audit by the accounting
firm of Powell and Jones of
Lake City has found that the
city of Lake Butler has some
work to do work to do when it
comes to accounting
procedures.
Findings of the audit were
issued June 13 at the city's
regularly scheduled monthly
meeting. It found the city had
failed to correctly account for
certain items, -including travel
expenses for the spouses of
some city officials. The audit
covered the fiscal year 2003-
04.
The audit found that there
was no record of the city being
reimbursed $225 for city
officials' supposes attending a
Florida League of Cities
conference.
"Although it's the city's
policy to receive
reimbursement for such
expenditures, we could not
find where they were-
reimbursed," the report stated.
City Manager Richard Tillis
explained that the expenses
were deducted from officials

A combination of
performance areas are added
together that give each school
a score. That score determines
what grade a school receives,
This year LBES earned 441
points to become an A school.
The school was one of 463
in the state that improved its
grade from last year.-In-20(04
the school received a B on its
report card. This is the second
time the school has received an
A grade. In 2003, the school
achieved the mark as well.
Along with the top grade,
the school met all requirements
of the federal No Child Left
Behind Act. According to the
report, LBES satisfied 100
percent of the criteria to meet
the standard. This percent is
based on 30 criteria the school

Library program transports participants


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On June 16, the Union
County Public Library
presented a program that took
participants back in time to the
Civil War era.
Presenter Rory Baggs not
only explained to program
goers how the Civil War was
fought but showed them some
of the items used. Civil war era
weapons, tents, clothes and
food were all on display for
participants to get a close look
at].
The program began with
children's library assistant
Carol Baier announcing "We
have gone into a time warp."
Baggs, a resident of Newberry,
then explained when and
.where the Civil War took
place. "The Civil war took
place between 1861 and 1865,"
explained Baggs.
As participants looked over
uniforms worn by both Union
and Confederate soldiers
Baggs explained that there was
some confusion with uniforms
during the first years of the
war. "During the first year of
the war both sides wore both
blue and gray uniforms," said
Baggs. "The confusion led to
the Union Army adopting the
blue uniform and the
Confederate Army using
gray."


Baggs had an array of both
types of uniforms available for
participants to view. Some
even got to try them on. The
clothing, made of wool, was
only worn by participants for a
few minutes because of the 90-
plus-degree weather.
Baggs also explained that an
infantry soldier, whom he was
portraying,. was required to
carry everything he needed
with him. "My weapon', water,
gun powder and caps all had to
be carried by an infantry
soldier," said Baggs. "They
were even required to carry
their food."
Baggs told participants that a
soldier's sleeping quarters
were modest as well. "If you
were lucky you got one army -
issued rubber blanket and one
wool blanket," said Baggs.
"On cold nights soldiers would
sleep four and five to a tent to
keep warm."
Several members of the
audience were invited to help
Baggs with his presentation.
Austin Baggett read off orders
for Baggs to load his musket.
Baggs explained that the
orders were given out by
company leaders. They helped
keep soldiers in sync.
Baggs' then told the crowd
about the more than 200 cases
that have been documented
that found women fighting for
the cause. "These women

pretended to be men in order to
fight in the battle," said Baggs.
"Those that were. found out
were sent homes, those who
were not received full army
pensions."
He then explained to the
crowd the importance of the
army's color guard. "The color
guard was the most honorable
position in the army," Baggs
explained. "Those chosen to


carry an army's flag were the
bravest soldiers in the
company."
According to Baggs, the life
expectancy for a flag bearer
during the Civil War was three
days. "Soldiers rallied around
their company's flag," said
Baggs. "Their goal was to
never let-it get captured."
He then recruited a volunteer
army from the crowd. He


instructed them on the proper
way to cheer after a victory.
"Three cheers for the Union,"
said Baggs. The group
Followed with "Hip, hip,
hooray."
Following his presentation,
Baggs answered many
questions from the crowd.
From "What does this do?" to

By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Florida House of
Representatives member
Aaron Bean recently
announced that Union County
will receive more than $9.5
million in funding from the
state's 2005-06 budget.
----Bean, who is the
representative for the 1211
district of Florida, which
,..--includes Union County, aid-
the funding. will"help the
county complete several
projects in the coming year.
Some of the funding will cover
road projects, while other
funding will go to help the
county update some existing
areas.
The majority of the money,
will cover two bridge
replacements and the repaving
of a road in the county. Just
over $3.7 million will go
toward the replacement of the
New River bridge on C.R. 229,
while $2.3 million will be used
to replace the Swift Creek
bridge on C.R. 241. Another
$1.3 million will be used to
repave C.R. 229 from the
Bradford County line to the
Baker County line.
The remainder of the funds
were divided among several
projects in the county. The
most significant will be the
addition of a 131 -bed open bay
dormitory to the Reception and
Medical Center (RMC) in
Lake Butler. $700,000 has
been allocated for the project.
When completed, the new
dorm will add 16 staffing
positions.
Also included in this year's
budget was $718,756 that will
pay for the additional staffing
required to man RMC's new
work camp. "The current
2005-06 fiscal year budget

facility," said Bean. Work is
currently beginning to
construct the new facility that
is scheduled open in June
2006.
The 2004-05 budget
appropriated the funds to build
the new camp. The 262-bed
facility will house trustees that
will provide labor to many
different sources. RMC
currently provides inmate labor
to both the county-and-the-city-
- of Lake'Buitler. It is expected
the new facility will require
70 new staffing positions.
Union County public schools
will benefit from two items in
the budget. The first being a
$2,223 incentive for
Workforce Education
Performance. Another
$168,721 will go toward
Workforce Education Program
funds.
Union County's recreational
funds will benefit as well. The
Union County Recreational
Complex and the Union
County Regional Park will
both receive $200,000 from the
state. The Florida Recreational
Development Assitance
Projects (FRDAP) grant is
providing the funding. Mary
Brown, member of the Union
County Recreational Board,
said the "money will provide
the board with means to update
the facility.
FRDAP is also providing the
county with $103,224 for a
vocational grant. A Vocational
Rehabilitation Grant for Adults
with disabilities will help fund
vocational programs in the
county.
"The 2005 session of the
Florida Legislature was most
positive in meeting the needs
of small rural counties," said
Bean.

"Aren't you hot in that
unifrom?" Baggs explained
each item to every person that
asked.
Baggs has been putting on
presentations like this for more
than 26 years. He travels all
over the state making the same
presentation. "I have three
hours of information I try to
condense into an hour
program," said Baggs.
'Along with making
presentations, Baggs
participates in battle
reenactments as well. "The
minute I found out there was a
hobby reenacting battles, I
knew it was for me," said
Baggs. He has participated in
the reenactment of the Battle
of Olustee for the past 28
years. "That's the one I never
miss," said Baggs.
Baggs recalls when only a
few participated in battle
reenactments. "When I began
in 1978, there were
approximately 50 people on
the battle field in Olustee,"
said Baggs. "Last year more
than 2,000 people had a part on
the field."
He said he used to frequent
more battles, but since the
birth of his son Jacob, he's had
to cut back on the number he
attends. "But that will change
soon as well," said Baggs. "I
already have a uniform ready
for him." Baggs said many of
the participants make the
events family affairs.
He said when attending
events he prefers to portray
Union soldiers. "Everyone else
wants to be Confederate
soldiers," said Baggs. "Being a
Union soldier affords me more
time on the battle field."
During his presentations and
reenactments, Baggs portrays
an infantry soldier from the
48th New York volunteer
infantry.
Baggs said his hobby is
becoming niore and more
popular. "There are many
suppliers that make authentic
Civil War items these days,"
said Baggs. "When I began,
you could only get one type of
musket, today you can get
about any one you want."
Baggs estimates he has spent
more than $15,000 over the
past" 28 -years Pputting his-'
collegtion together.

GRADES
Continued from p. 1A

The report also indicates that
89 percent of students are
meeting the state standards in
writing.
Because the school did not
meet all its requirements, it
provisionally met the
requirements of the No Child
Left Behind Act. It will be up
to the state to determine if and
when the school would receive
any sanctions as a result.
Union County High School
(UCHS) received a C once
again this year. It is the highest
grade the school has received
in the seven years since the
prograrh started. In 2002, the
school received a D. The
school scored a 369.
According to the report, only
37 percent of UCHS students
are reading at or above grade
level. Fifty-one percent have
made a year's worth of
progress in the area. Another
52 percent of struggling
students made a year's worth
of progress as well. The report
stated that students with
disabilities, white, African-
American and economically
disadvantaged students in this
school all needed to improve in
the reading area.
The report found that 64
percent of students were at or
above grade level in math.
Seventy-three percent had
made a year's worth of
progress. The report found
students with disabilities,
African-American students and
disadvantaged students all
needed improvement in the
area.
The report also found 92
percent of UCHS students
were meeting the state's
standard for writing. Only
children that economically
disadvantaged were found to
need improvement in the area.
This percentage did give the
school the highest among any
school district in the state for a
second year in a row.
UCHS did not meet the
requirements of the No Child
Left Behind Act. The report
does not indicate if any
sanctions will be leveled
against the school for not
meeting the requirement

As the 2005 hurricane
season begins, Union County
Emergency Medical Services
(EMS) recommends residents
with special medical needs
prepare now for long term
power outages by planning
ahead.
"We are urging all citizens
that are dependent upon.
electricity for medical reasons
to plan ahead by storing extra_
-medical- supplies," said EMS
Director Allen Parrish.
During the 2004 hurricane
season, EMS was
overwhelmed with requests for
oxygen, generators and
refrigeration. "Many residents
are dependent upon electricity
for their oxygen generators,
keeping medication
refrigerated, and to operate
specialized equipment for
breathing," said Parrish. "We
are asking these residents to
prepare now-for-the upicoiing
season."
The EMS recommends
medically needy residents use
the following guidelines to
prepare for long-term power
outages:
Contact your doctor's
office, home health-care
provider or medical supply
company and request enough
oxygen and supplies to last at
least 48 hours without
electricity. -
Contact your doctor's
office, pharmacist or
medication supply company
and request enough
prescription medication to last
5-7 days.
Keep a smaller cooler and
water proof containers to store
medication that is dependent
upon refrigeration.
Keep all of your medical
supplies such as medication,
walkers and oxygen in a
location that is easy to find.
These should be easy to move
in the event it becomes
necessary to move to a shelter.
Register with the Union
County Office of Emergency

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area


BC commiun tysuffers4oss--with death of Schmitt


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

Ida Sue Kerce Schmitt once
remarked that her contributions
to the Bradford County
community comprised the rent
she had to pay for living on this
earth.
Well, Schmitt paid more thian-
her fair share of the rent and for
that she will surely be missed.
Schmitt died at the age of 60 on
June 16 after an extended
illness.
It was in a March 19, 1998
story published in the
Telegraph that Schmitt told of
her grandfather's-belief that the
things people did for their
fellow man were the rent they
paid for being allowed to live
on earth.
"I believe it is my duty as a
human being to do all I can to
help human kind and improve
the community," Schmitt said
in an interview at that time.
"Everything I've done is just
my chance to pay rent on the
space I take up."
Her rent included being
.active in numerous civic and
charitable organizations, as well
as showing a compassion for
every person she met.
"She enjoyed being around

Sasser said he has a healthN
respect for those who have laid
the foundation for the college.
"They are some of the best
primary ambassadors Santa Fe
has," said Sasser. "They are
community leaders who ha'e
made an investment in their
lives in Santa Fe and we are
building on the shoulders of
those who have preceded us," -.
Nineteen former and current
trustees toured the Kika Silha
Pla Planetarium, which was
made possible by a challenge
grant from U.S. Rep. Cliff
Stearns and a donation from
local developer John Pla .and
his wife Amy Howard. The
trustees heard presentations on
Santa Fe's East Gainesville and
International Initiatives and got
some insight on the college's
education centers.
"It was a fantastic meeting."
said Harry Hatcher, trustee
from 1993-1998. "It was good
to go back and see all the
improvements we have made."
Mildred Hill-Lubin, trustee
froiim 1993-99, said she is
tremendously impressed with
the various initiatives. "I'm
excited and can see that all of
us are concerned-with the same
issues. I can see we'll be able
to bring ideas together and
make a larger impact.",
"I love this place," said Judy
Boles. "I'm so ecstatic that
Santa-Fe has had a role in the
community, but now that they
are taking a leadership role is
the most exciting change."
As a trustee from 1994-
1999, Boles was involved in
the planning of the original
Charles L. Blount Downtown
Center. "I felt strongly about it
then. nd now to see that it's
growing is very exciting."
Througi.out the presentation,
trustees heard from students
who attend classes at the
Biount Center, Andrews Center
in Stark and the Da''i Center-
in Archer, Students mentioned
the convenience of the centers
aLnr what it means to them to
be able to attend classes s6

Elizabeth Jones, trustee from

good about the role Santa Fe
has played in the community.
"The fact that the) ha~e high

Husband, wife bringing new restaurant to Starke


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer
It won't be much longer
before the quiet renovation
work beneath the sign depicting
a Spanish bull fighter that
stretches high over U.S. 301
gives way to the opening of Mi
Toro, a Mexican restaurant
whose name, in Spanish, means
"my bull." There is a possibility
that the restaurant will open
before the end of this month.
"Mi Toro" is a name that was
given to the restaurant chain
from way back. A bull is an
animal that is very strong and
forward-going, and that is how
the family of managers and
cooks consider themselves, said
CEO and Co-Manager Yolanda
Hipolito.
Anastacio Hipolito co-owns
the restaurant with his wife
Yolanda. The two met when he
was a cook and she was a
manager in the Mandarin
Jacksonville branch of the
family-run business. The head
staff is completed by her two
sons, Alejandro ("Alex") Seda
and Luis, Juarbe, and her
daughter, Stacy Juarbe.
Once open, the restaurant will
serve authentic, Mexican food
cooked by authentic Mexicans,.
said Anastacio. This, he said in
his fiative tongue, with the
bilingual Yolanda translating,

the bull stands for when shirts

Driving and safety go hand in hand


U Young,people at risk


Mother Nature knows how to keep
the male-female population ratio in
balance. For each 100 girl babies born,
she sends 103 boy babies. Those
numbers are necessary because
females tend to live through infancy
better than males.
When both sexes reach adolescence,
boys are more prone to accidents,
further reducing the boy-girl ratio. In
wartime, males are the prime target for
subduing the enemy.
A generation is probably in balance
when it reaches the third and fourth
decades, unless males are seriously
depleted by war, but since women
have a longer life expectancy than
men, the male-female ratio is
seriously out of balance by retirement
age.
'" There' are some things we cannot
change, such as the loss of ,male
babies in relation to female babies.
While being referred to as the "\ eaker
sex," women are actually the stronger
in some instances; it's Mother Nature's
way of protecting the species, Perhaps
we can't change the nation's
propensity for war, but we 'can
increase awareness of poor driving
habits that seem to plague young,
people. Not that males are the only
victims of vehicle crashes, but
generally speaking, they drive more,
take more chances and drive at higher
speeds. :
Unfortunately, we are losing young
women in the 16-24 year old age
group at unacceptable rates, also.

allowed their children to be on the
road at that time of day. Parents have the
responsibility to set hours to be home, and with some
exceptions. a midnight curfew should be standard
fare. It seems better to have a youngster at home, even
if he's angry about the curfew, than to have him or her
lying in the morgue. Children may not see the
situation in the same light, but parents are provided to
care for offspring until such time that knowledge and
experience catch up with physical growth.
'The death of young people is the most compelling
reason for being concerned about voting adults,
because the\ are killing and mutilating themselves in
numbers far beyond .their ratio in the population.
Insurance companies recognize their inexperience in
driving, and their cavalier attitude toward danger, and
charge premiums accordingly. For those without

insurance premiums are quoted from a reliable

$2,398. If his record shows a speeding charge 15 mph


One recent Tuesday I woke up
and ate an early breakfast
because I had a 9 a.m.
appointment with a doctor in
Gainesville. Although it should
have been bright sunlight, the
sky was dark and overcast, and
rain was pelting down, requiring
the use of windshield wipers.
Visibility wasn't too bad, but it
could have been better.
In the grey, dark morning light,
I met vehicles running wipers,
but without lights showing. Now
these drivers without lights are
otherwise good drivers, but they
aren't thinking. On a gray, dark
rainy morning, visibility isn't too
good, and it is difficult to see
some cars until one is getting
close.
The driver is endangering his
own life and the lives of others
simply by not turning on lights in
'semidarkness. Remember, when
wipers are running in the
daytime, turn on your lights,
also. I think it's the law.
The next infraction I noted was
the big, gargantuan SUVs and
pickup trucks, with their
headlights about four feet above.
the ground, just high enough to
shine directly into the windshield
of a medium car, such as I drive.
Now the drivers of those
vehicles--can't control the height
of their vehicle headlights, but
do they have to drive with lights
on high beam? I'm reluctant to
believe that drivers use high
'beams just to antagonize other
drivers, but it can be a real
problem to drivers of passenger

_. 'itching to low beams is the
courteous thing to do.
Vehicles with one headlamp
out aren't the nuisance that once


e, and mat is good
ple on the road at
he prevalence of


motorcycles on the road today, a
driver can easily mistake a' car
with one light for a motorcycle
'with tragic results. Most people
know when a vehicle has one
light burned out and take
immediate action to repair the
light, but unfortunately, there are
those who will drive the vehicle
anyway, endangering themselves
and others.
I realize many people are tired
of my writing on the subject, but
drivers that fail to signal turns,
with their turn signals are being
discourteous at best, and
downright inconsiderate of
others. The worst scenario is
failing to actuate turn signals and
causing an accident. Everybody
loses, and the accident could
have been prevented. Be smart;
signal your intentions to turn.
I'm aware that many people
won't agree, but I suggest that all
la\\ enforcement officers in the
county, whether working traffic
or not, begin issuing "courtesy"
tickets to drivers who are
v violating these minor infractions.
No fines would be assessed, not
even on multiple tickets, but
drivers could build a record for
poor driving habits by continued
disregard for simple rules that
would' make driving less
stressful.
Pulling vehicles over for
speeding or other flagrant
violations for which a fine is'
assessed and overlooking minor
infractions that don't justify a
fine makes it appear that officers
'are only looking to fillcounty
coffers', which, bf course,, isn't
true in o-r community. _,, -
Many of these items seem to
be nitpicking, but we'll all be
better drivers if we pay attention
to the small things.

Writer


above the limit, the premium escalates to $3,461 for
six months. An accident can raise insurance premiums
to $3,791, and a DUI results in a premium of $3,872,
twice a year..
To put those amounts in perspective, a 40-year-old
driver will pay $931 for a basic policy, for six months.
Additional charges for the 40-year-old: speeding,
$1,208: accident, $1,365; DUI, $1,418.
While there are many causes for crashes, congestion
appears to be the culprit of thehighways, and it will
only get worse as the Florida population increases.
Now the fourth most populous state in the-Union, it
bids to surpass New York and move into the third
most populous state position, behind California and
Texas. Covering the state with additional concrete and
asphalt in new roads isn't the total answer because of,
the cost and environmental damage.
This year the legislature enacted a number of traffic
laws in an effort to reduce the spiralling death and.
injury rate, and drivers can expect more restrictions
by statute each year. The courts have said that driving
is a privilege, not a right, and the state has a mandate
to protect its citizens, even from themselves.

UF experts say feral pigs are here to stay
Y'r e,,. o s ay,


Florida's population boom
now includes some 500,000
wild hogs whose piggish habits
are causing problems for
farmers, residents and health
officials as well as.native flora
and faima.
Bill Giuliano, an assistant'
professor of wildlife ecology at
the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, said the
-only state that contains ,more
wild hogs than Florida is Texas.
Wild or feral hogs can now be
found in every Florida county
and in at least 35
states-including one, to two
million hogs in the Southeast.
Nationwide.
"Because they are prolific
breeders, there is no way to'
completely eradicate them,",
Giuliano said.., "Een with

Giuliano said the problem
can be traced to 1539 when
Hernando DeSoto brought hogs
into southwest Florida-some
of them found freedom in the.
New World. Nearly 500 years
later, there are some 3 million
descendants of these "pioneer
pigs" across the nation.
In Florida, some of the
highest densities offeral hogs
can be found north and west of
Lake Okeechobee, where large
forested tracts, dense
vegetation, abundant water and
limited public access provide an
ideal environment for the pigs.

Children
growing up in
violent homes
With the sensationalistic
Michael Jackson trial behind
us, we must now turn our
attention to other child
victimization issues such as
children growing up in violent
homes. According to social
learning theory, children will
emulate what they see and
experience, much more so than
what they are told. The old
adage, "Do what I say and not
what I do" does not apply to
children whose natural instinct
is to mimic the adult behaviors
they witness.
When children grow up io
violent homes, they learn
violence. They learn that using
violence is an appropriate way
to solve conflicts. In fact, they
may learn that this is the only
way to solve conflicts, if the
only models they have in their
lives problem-solve using'
violence. Young boys, in
particular, may learn to use
violence to assert dominance
over an intimate partner.
In addition, children who
grow up in violent homes
oftentimes learn other
messages that can promote
violence. For example,
traditional gender roles are
frequently found in homes
where violence occurs. The idea
is that the "man of the house"
has the authority to make
decisions for the family. This
can lead to abuse when his
wishes are not followed or
when his seemingly innate
authority is threatened by his
wife's or partner's position of
power in the family-perhaps
'she earns more money than
him or she is contemplating
leaving the abusive
home-acts such as these
threaten his sense of power in
what he deems are his home,
his family.
Political rhetorical frequently
posits that "family values" are
under attack in our country and
cite statistics concerning
single-parenthood, divorce,
absentee fathers and other so-
called markers of concern for
family .values. However,
Richard Gelles, a well-known
family vi.lenee 'researcher,'
finds that grioiri.tg .up ,ina
"violent home can be the worst
thing that can ever happen to a
child. We should turn our
attention to the detrimental
effects of growing up in a
violent home.

from someone's loved one.
Riding along the highways and
seeing these markers pulls at
my heart. I know their feelings
and cannot pass without a
prayer for both family
members and loved one.This
is a bond though as strangers
we share and an understanding
we know.
Recently I have decided to
make a photo journal of these
"Crosses by the Way," and
collect stories of the loved
ones. Perhaps you or someone
you know has a "Cross by the
Way."
I want to share our stories,
our love, our need and our
understanding. Please, if you
would like to share your story,

so many visitors, but that was
not a concern of hers.
f \ "She insisted that there be no
restrictions on visitation,"
Vaughan said. "She wanted to
see her friends and share the
memories, share the tears and
share the laughter."
Mary Powell, who served
with Schmitt in Altrusa
International of Starke, said
there was always a constant
stream of people flowing into
Schmitt's hospital room. What
struck Powell was how Schmitt
had something unique to say to
each visitor,
....,"That really amazed me that
t -'' ''- that many people could come
through and she could come up
S< with something special to say to
each one," Powell said.
Powell, Vaughan and Futch.
all remarked how Schmitt was
never one to harbor, any
negative .feelings toward
anyone or hold a grudge against
T'e. d *" ': '' y somebody.
"She was very forgiving,'.
Futch said. "She thought
everybody deserved a second
chance."
Schmitt treated everyone % ith'
kindness-so much so that oiie
d Master Ted Barber was apt to feel as if he or she
:s John Whitehead with was part ofSchmit's family.
Certificate of Good "Ida Sue was a mother figure
son in Lake Butler Lodge for this entire community,"
Vaughan said. "When I would,
see her, she would call me
'son,' yet I shared my
'surrogate mom' with so many
others. Everyone knew Ida,
register just before the race. Sue."
Awards will be presented to That "surrogate mom" loved
the overall male and female children. It was Schmitt who

organized the annual senior
a%%ards banquet and worked on
the Boatdrain Museum project.
Those are just a few of the
things Schmitt kept busy with.
Futch said she put an extra


amrnount of energy into
everything she did.: .
"She just-: went the extra
mile," he said.
Even through health
problems, Schmitt wanted to
remain as active as her body
would allow, Powell said. She
would remain active and never
once talk about how bad she
felt.
"'You just couldn't slow her
down," Powell said.
Schmitt's efforts also earned
her several awards, including
the North Florida Chamber of
Commerce's "Citizen of the
Year" in 1992-93. Schmitt was
also named a Santa Fe
Community College Alachua-
Bradford Woman of Distinction
in 1998.1
Schmitt, was born in Lake
Butler and spent most of her
childhood in. Palatka. Her
family did live in Starke during
1958-60 before moving back to
Palakta. Schmitt graduated from
high school in Palatka in 1963
and she moved to Starke in
1964 .
Schmitt achieved certification
as a hair stylist and worked in a
local beauty shop before
eventually becoming its owner.
She also utilized her skills by
doing the hair and makeup for
the deceased at Jones Funeral
Home..
"It's a good feeling when
someone tells me how good
their loved one looks." Schmitt
said in. 1998. "Doing the hair
and cosmetics ik the least I can
do io try to make the family feel
a little benier."
Yet one more example of
Schmitt's kindness. She did not
view the cosmetic work she did
at the funeral home as a job but
as something kind to do for
someone else.
Powell said it was that type
of personality that made
Schmitt such a special person.
"If God hada wallet, Ida
Sue's picture would be in it,"
Powell said.


Ida Sue Kerce
Schmitt was
involved in many
organizations
during her life,
helping to make
Bradford County
a better place.

loving heart and a gentle spirit. He
loved us all and your acts of :
kindness have shown us how much
he was loved in return-'by so many.
We want each of you to know that
this thank you so very much comes
from our hearts. Every prayer,;
every hug, every gift offood and
your words of encouragement will
never be forgotten. A special thank
you to Pastor Daniel Tyler, our
cousin Bo. We know it waar difficult
for you but your service was
beautiful.
To the staff at DeWitt C. .Jones, our

genuine caring and
professionalism. You made this time
easier for us.
Thank you all for everything.

restaurant manager because
both involve working heavily
with people.
Her mother was a long-time
owner of Mommy's Restaurant
in Bridgeport, Conn., where
Yolanda is from.
When asked how the two
careers compare, the difference
was mainly one of serving the
suffering and one of serving
those in search of great food
and good times. She admits that
in the restaurant business, she
no longer deals primarily with
-things such as sickness, pain,
sadness, death. Her point is that
you cannot say that you are
going tb be a professional in the
field of,: medicine and not get
emotionally involved with
people'ssuffering.
Unlike the bull in the
restaurant's mural, the business
woman is not void at all of
honest sensitivity underneath
her business skin; she admits
the things she saw in her former
profession brought her to tears

back to the community drove
her to relocate from Bridgeport
to Jacksonville and, finally, to
Starke. "I don't like to feel like
I'm taking from the community
and not giving anything back,"
she stated.
The native English-speaking
Yolanda mastered Spanish and
became bilingual in 1995. But it
is her husband who is from the
heartland of the cuisine which
the restaurant is built around.
The Mexican-born Anastacio is
slated to serve as the kitchen
manager, chef, and co-manager.
He started his career in about
1997 when he left his country
and worked in America as a
dish washer, slipping about
seven years of experience up
his sleeve.


The distinguishing factor his
restaurant holds above others is
that his provides authentic
Mexican food cooked by
authentic Mexicans, he said. He
hopes that Mi Toro will be a big
hit, that everything will run
correctly, that people are happy,
and that he will give people
what they want, he added.
The restaurant will be serving
food Monday through Thursday
from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday
and Saturday will hopefully see
the restaurant open from 11
a.m. to as late as 11 p.m. On
Sunday the restaurant will
probably close a bit earlier, but
that shall be determined closer
to the opening date.
The restaurant will probably-
open between June 20 27.

He wanted his customers to
feel that the\ were in a different
atmosphere as they dined, as
opposed to just telling
themselves, "I'm just going to
go grab something to eat." His
mother joked that as far as
determining aesthetics, she
never wants what her son
wants, yet when what he wants
materializes, she is pleased.
Yolanda believes her son is a
very hardworking perfectionist
and is highly motivated in both
the restaurant and marketing
fields, He is here to-help fire up
the new restaurant, and then he
will back off and return to his
mortgage business. However,
he may not back off so easily;
lie's strong and forward and
works like a bull, she jokingly-
added:.
Luis and Stacy Juarbe are
getting close to obtaining
restaurant/food& manager
certifications. Under mother
Yolanda's watchful eye they
were always pushed to stay in
school and stay employed.
Yolanda always saw to it that
they remained exclusively with
the family business, waiting on
tables.
Luis and his friend David
Scott have placed numerous
tiles in place to cover the main
kitchen counter which will be

Like his mom, Luis has prior
experience in medicine. Not
long ago he was pursuing work
as an emergency medical
technician. He took a first
responder course and then
learned that he was soon going
to be a father. To provide a

Stacy is pursuing a bachelor's
in criminology and is a
specialist in loss prevention.
Known to_ ,the_ family as
"F.J.," the civil engineer who
paints will have spent a total of
about five days on what will
become the most dramatic
media of the restaurant: a bull
centered in a Mexican arena,-
charging straight at the viewer.
The muralist i.s striving to
stay true to" life in imaging the
main character by using various
reference photos. He is even
utilizing 'a photo of Wall
Street's famous "Charging Bull"
bronze statue.
This is his first commissioned
artwork. His hobby has led him
to paint several murals for the
i interiors of homes of family and
friends. He says of the mural,
"It'll be a bull charging at you.
When you open the door, the
first thing customers will see is
the bull.'-' He has- painted-
dinosaurs and a football field on
murals for his cousins. In his.
own house he -has -chosen to
paint a Mucha tribute mural.
He is not alone in his craft at
the restaurant. His friend Leo
Bio, a postal worker by day,
trades in his sack of mail for a
bucket dfpaint to help F.J.,
lending his brush to the mural
also. Bio is also an experience
graffiti artist.

Bradford

By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


Bradford High School
defensive tackle Letroy Guion
was planning on going to
Kansas to begin his collegiate
career, but now he will remain
in state and become a member
of the Florida State Seminoles
after completing his academic
requirements. tobe_ eligible to
attend the Division I school.
Guion was :set to attend
Butler Community .College in
El Dorado, Kansas for a year
before transferring to FSU.
...-.... However, Guion, with a little
extra work put in during the
latter part of his senior year,
will-be eligible to enroll at FSU
as a freshman. He signed his
letter of intent on June 18 at
Harvest Christian Fellowship in
Starke.
"It's an awesome feeling,"
Guion said. "I get to go straight
to the top level. I don't have to
go through the junior college
le\el. I can go nto FSU) and
compete with the other guys
like I know I can."
Guion, will become a
Seminole sooner than planned
after working %with tutor Angie
Hopkins, a Bradford High
School teacher, to successfully
complete a required core
course. She deserves a lot of
thanks. said Guion, who wanted
to also thank all the teachers at
BHS. BHS defensive
coordinator/defensive line
coach Steve Hoard, his pastor
and God.
His family was also a big
help, Guion said.
"I thank my family for bemg -
there to support me, pushing me
the way they do. If they weren't
behind me, I don't think I
could've made it this far," he
said.
Not only does Guion get the
chance to go -.traight to a
Di vision I school, but he ha-
what looks to-be a-good chance
to contribute immediately. FSU
lost All-American Travis
Johnson to the NFL as well as
Clifton Dickson, who was
dismissed from the team
because of academic reasons.
"It's a great opportunity."


'S


Guion to be a Seminole starting this year


BHS head coach Chad-
Bankston said. "I think he's
going to have a great chance to
step in and play right away."
Bankston said one of Guion's


assets is that he plays hard
every play. Bradford's game
against Madison County in the
Class 2A regional finals proved
that much as Guion played


every snap on both defense and
offense, where he lined up at
tight end. Despite never coming-
off the field, Guion finished the
game with 14-tackles..-


Hoard said Guion also brings "He's able to hit like
a punishing strength to the field linebackers do," Hoard said of
which resulted in opposing the 6-4, 282-pound player who

unconscious this past season. See GUION p. 5C

Brian Johns brings 30-years of fire-fighting experience to his new position as
director of emergency management for Bradford County.


Johns is new emergency

management director in BC


District champions


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer
Brian Johns, as of June 8, has
been appointed to the position
of director of emergency
* management for Bradford
County. He brings to the table
S30 years of fire-fighting
experience acquired with the
Gainesville Fire Department.
The Office of Emergenc.
Management is responsible for
mitigating the scene of large-
scale emergencies in the
county. Although smaller
emet~encieJkfPdkaintle a fire,"
can be harfdled through the fire
Departments, Johns' office
handles the management of
large-scale disasters, such as
hurricanes arid tornados.
He has been a public servant:
since he was 19 ears old. A
friend sparked an interest in
becoming a firefighter with the
appealing hours of the job (one
day on, two days off). Of the 30
years Johns served as a
firefighter with. the Gaines' ille
Fire Rescue Department. the
final 16 were ones where he
was proud to serve as a
hazardous materials lieutenant.
: Of that job, he says he
enjoyed being a public servant,
citing, in particular, the jo) of
working with children in
schools and getting important
-safety messages to them. He
distributed messages to kids
such as the importance of
wearing a bike helmet and of
drepping- to the ground and
rolling out- flames in the
unlikely event they should
happen to catch fire. He fondly
remembered speaking before
the chamber of commerce and
many others-in his travels.
He still has an interest in
working with fire departments
and this job enables him to
work with the volunteers of
Bradford, County. What he
loves most is getting to interact
with people and being able to
offer solutions to problems. He
still enjoys getting out and
interacting with people. He
enjoys addressing their
concerns and working to get
solutions to their problems.
Emergency management has
an activation of services code
that applies to the scale of
emergency in question. The
code is laid out in roughly three
stages, he explained. Level one
is a stage where the public is
made aware of a condition that
carries some risk but is not an
immediate danger. Level two is
the point where the office must
monitor the environmental
conditions a bit closer. Level
three is the mark when setting


up an emergency operations
center (EOC) is in order.
In a Level three emergency,
Bradford County's emergency
support function staff are
brought in to carry on
operations. His department sets
up emergency shelters in times
of emergency. It is usually a
public school that will become
a shelter. Last year, the
department had a special needs
shelter at Southside ElementarN
School. Mobile EOCs can also
be set up in the counts as the
situation calls for.
"We try to plan for situations
'Rtokr tiey i'p h?,' eoim.'
*With regard to'flndiffg,. his
office monitors the lake levels
and rainfall in the area on a
daily basis.
Last year many people
suffered damage to their homes
due to hurricanes, which
created about eight weeks of


flooding in the county. Along
with hurricanes, come power
outages and the rush to buy
generators. He warns that where
many people fail is when they
buy a generator and then do not
educate themselves in the
proper usage of it.
Johns encourages anyone
who has purchased a generator
and is not sure of what
appliances the generator will
run to stop by the office and
pick Up a generator safety
pamphlet. Johns explained a
situation seen multiple times
where electricians working on
pFwer lines were electrocuted
because generators were
hooked up to homes incorrectly.
Johns encourages anyone
with questions concerning
emergency management to
please call his office at (904)*

What brings

you back?

By JOHNS WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor


With most hobbies, interests,
activities and sports--especially
in the Great Outdoors-there is
a special ingredient in there
somewhere that always brings
Nou back. It can be elusive, but
it always seems to show up just
in time.
Example: You've played 17
holes of golf. And you have not
done particularly well. You
made a couple of decent putts.
You made a good chip shot and
you did hit a par three green in
one. But then, you step up to
the tee at 18, .you swing your
normal swing and you hear that
magic sound--that special
"cracking noise" that lets you
know that Nou nailed it. You hit
the sweet spot and that swing
felt good all the way down to
your toes. "Who's your
Daddy?!"
D Your next shot doesn't really
matter now. When anyone asks
you how your game was that
day, you tell them all about that
shot.
THAT is what brings you
back.
No matter what your sport or
activity is, there is probably
something special that will get'
you there. It will help you enjoy
your sport and,, most
importantly, it will bring you
back.
In fishing, it can be the sight
of your cork being buried by a
gator trout, or it can be that
special slicing of the water
when a big fish razors your line
across the surface like a
professionalonaf ,piza-. uLLCLta,.
action. 4
S'"It could be' the-last 'day of'-
deer season and you haven't
even taken the safety off all
year. You have put in all the
hours, of preparation and
patiently paid your sitting time
dues, and ....he. finally steps
out. A perfect broadside at 60
yards, he completely fills up
your scope. You click off the
safety and let out half .our
breath and hold it right on the
spot. You squeeze. He goes
down like a kite with no string
and you go up like a Polaris
missile.


"YES!," .you yell out
primordially as you pump your
fist, Tiger Woods-style, living
every nanosecond of it and
searing the moment deep into
your memory forever.
Even though, most of us can't
name it or identify it, all
sportsmen' and outdoor
enthusiasts know what it is.
This feeling, this moment, this
event that is hard to explain or
express. It's like- knowing the
difference between pretty and
ugly. You just know. It's either
pretty, or it's ugly. (And, yes, it


can also be pretty ugly!)
It's a surfer catching that one
wave of a lifetime. It's the
kayaker exhilaratingly shooting
the white water drop off, rolling
it over and coming up
screaming and grinning.
It's the outdoor photographer
catching that majestic -mature
bald eagle taloning a bass and
lifting itself and the fish in slow
motion from the water.
It's the hiker getting to the
mountain crest, looking out
over the valley and thinking
that, at that moment, you are
experiencing divine providence.
It's the camper, nosing out of
the tent flap and, on a cold,
frosty morning, smelling
cooking bacon, eggs and fresh-
ground coffee.
It's the grandpa seeing that
smile on his grandson's face
when the little guy caught his
first fish. And, it is the daddy's
smile when he helps his
daughter get her firstee firstdeer. Yes!
It all comes together at that
particular moment.
Somewhere in Arkansas, just
a few months ago, a long-
thought extinct bird, the Ivory
Billed Woodpecker, was seen,
heard and -photographed. (I saw

Conner joins
membership
of Angus
Assoc.
Randy Conner of Brooker is
a new member of the American
Angus Association, reports
John Crouch, executive vice
president of the national breed
registry organization in Saint
Joseph, Mo.
The American Angus
Association, with more than
34,000 active adult and junior
members, is the largest beef
cattle registry Association in
the world. Its computerized
records include detailed
information on more than 14
million registered Angus.
The association records
ancestral information and keeps
production records, on
individual animals for its
members. These permanent
records help members select
and mate the best animals in
their herds to produce high
quality, efficient breeding cattle
which are then recorded with
the American Angus
Association. Most of these
registered Angus are used by
the U.S.farmers and ranchers
who raise high quality beef for
U.S.consumption.


Not armies, not nations, have advanced the race; but here
and there, in the course of the ages, an individual has stood
up and cast his shadow over the world.
-Edwin H. Chapin
