County presents $8.2 million budget


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On Aug. 4, the Union
County Board of County
Commissioners presented its
budget for the 2005-06 fiscal
year.
The $8.2 million proposal is
more than $1 million more
than the 2004-05 budget. Most
of that increase comes in the
form of a pair of $200,000
grants from the Florida
Recreation Development
Assistance Program. The
grants will help the county
build several new ball fields at
the O.J. Phillips Recreational




Road


department

budget

increases

By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County Road
Department will see an.
_increase in its budget this
year-but the increase is not
significant.
The fund, entitled the
Transportation Trust Fund, in
the county's proposed 2005-06
budget, will increase spending
by only $7,680. One reason for
the small amount is the
estimated revenue from the
county's local option $.05 gas"
tax.
Last year the county
estimated the fund would
contribute $283,536. This year
that estimate stands at
$259,051. That is a $24,000
decrease from last year,
slightly less than a 10 percent
decrease over last year.
Increases in other areas will

See ROADS p. 3A


Complex.
One real increase in the
budget is in ad valorem taxes.
Property value increases have
given the county an additional
$130,000 in revenue for the
2005-06 fiscal year. The
increase is helping the county
offset the 3 percent across-the-
board raise the budget has
proposed for all employees.
As proposed, the general
fund portion of the budget will
total more than $3.8 million.
This portion covers expenses
for several different
departments, including the
board of county
commissioner's budget, a


portion of both the clerk of
court's and tax collector's
budgets, the property
appraiser's budget, the
supervisor of elections'
budget, the sheriff's
department budget and the
courthouse.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead is
asking the county for more
than $1.3 million for the 2005-
06 fiscal year. The request is
largest of any department. It is
only $38,173 more than the
department requested last year.
The budget includes
Whitehead's salary which-is
$94,711. The sheriff received
the exact same amount the


previous year.
Whitehead was quick to
point out that the budget
covers not only what residents
see, but what they don't see as
well.
"My budget covers not only
deputies' salaries, but behind
the scenes expenses like the
jail and security for the
courthouse," said Whitehead.
The budget also includes
$88,110 for capital outlay
expenses. According to
administrative deputy Lyn
Williams, the money will
cover two new patrol cars,
radio equipment- and other-
miscellaneous equipment for.


deputies.
Along with the capital
outlay, the department has
another $127,651 earmarked as
special law enforcement
revenue. The money is spent
on equipment as well, but,
according to Williams, can
only be spent on specific
equipment.
The revenue is from-
property seizures made.by the
sheriff's office. According to
Williams, the money can only
be used to by equipment that
will help the department make
more seizures. He also said the

UCHS homecoming queen now queen of UCSO


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County High
School homecoming queenof
1998 is now the queen of the---
Union County Sheriffs Office.
Lake Butler native Mindy
Goodwin was recently
transferred from dispatcher to
deputy after earning her law
enforcement credentials from
Lake City Community
College. Goodwin said it's a
move she's wanted to make for
quite some time.
"I just got bored sitting
behind the scenes," said
Goodwin. "I wanted to see
what was on the other end of
the calls I was dispatching."
Goodwin comes by the
interest. naturally. Her father,
Benny Browning, was a
reserve deputy with the
department from 1979 to 1982.
Her mother, Velma, has
worked for Union County
Judge David Reiman since
1981. Velma said Goodwini
surprised everyone with her
career decision.
"In high school she was
prissy," said Browning. "Sfie
excelled in agriculture and we
all thought that would be her
career choice. I guess she
really got into law enforcement
after dispatching for a while."'
She began her career with
the sheriff's office as soon as
she graduated from high
school in 1998. Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead hired her as a part-


time dispatcher while she
attended college. After a year
of school, she decided that it
was not for her. She left and
went to full-time status with
-the sheriff'soffice.
While she hiad always been-a.
dispatcher, all her time was not
spent in Union County. For a
few years she worked with the
Starke Police Department.
While there she pulled double
duty as both dispatcher and
receptionist. SPD
,Communications Supervisor
Joan Hall said she did a superb
job for the department.
"She was a great dispatcher
while she was with us," said
Hall.
Though she enjoyed her job
at SPD, it just wasn't the same
as being in Union County. The,,
hometown girl decided it was
time to come back to her roots.
Goodwin sat behind the scenes.
until March of this year when'
Whitehead moved her to
deputy. She said she has
finally found a career she truly
enjoys.
"It's where my heart is at,"
said Goodwin. "I love it."
She spent more than 800'
hours training to be a law
enforcement officer. Goodwin
spent evenings Monday
through Friday and most
Saturday in Lake City
learning the inis and outs of the
profession. The course covered
many topics including criminal
law, first-responder tactics,
firearms training, emergency


vehicle .operations -and.-_
defensive tactics. .
In all, it took Goodwin more
than six months to complete
the training. She said looking
back it doesn't seem like it
-took-that..long.Tbe hardest part
of the entire process was 5eing
away from her children.
"I was working all day and
going to school at night," said,
Goodwin. "If I was lucky, I
saw my kids on Sundays."
Randa, 2 and Nicholas, 8,
spent a lot of time with
Goodwin's parents during her
schooling. She said while she
missed them greatly, she knew
she, was working toward a
better life for them and toward
what she really wanted to do.
doodwin said her parents
were not the .only ones- that
helped-her. She credits her
husband, James ,with making a
-lot of sacrifices as well.
Goody, as he is affectionately
known, made lots of dinners
and tucked in children who
were' asking "Where's mom?"
"He went above and beyond
to make sure I could go to
school," said Goodwin. "I'll
never be able to thank him
.enough for the sacrifices he
made so that I could obtain my
dream."
James said that while he's
extremely proud of his wife's
accomplishments, it still
doesn't take away the fear that
comes with the line of work
she has chosen..
''Every time: she' goes to

work, I'm scared of what could
happen to her," said James.
"You never know when she'll
be dealing with that one person
that hates law enforcement. He
or she could take it out on her
just because she's a deputy,."

paramedic, has seen the
dangers of the job first hand.

BUDGET
Continued from. p. 1A

revenue is nonrecurring
funding.
"This is the first time in my
15 year history with the
department that fund has
totalled more than $3,000,"
said Williams. "The $127,(X)0
is there because of the
department's involvement in a
task force with other
surrounding counties. It might
be another 15 years before we
see that amount again."
The Union'County Board of
County Commissioner's
budget shows the board
estimates it will use $548,323
of taxpayers' dollars. This
includes "$122,124 for
commissioners' salaries. This
equals one-fifth of the entire
budget. The $23,829 salary per
commissioner is the same
amount the commissioners
drew last year.
Also in the board's budget -is--
the health insurance cost for
the sheriff's-. department.
According to Donna Jackson,
the county's financial officer,
the money comes from the
board's budget because of
paperwork issues.
becausee the sheriff's
department does it's own
payroll, personnel changes
made it difficult for us to keep
the proper, amount for health
insurance in the department's
budget," said, Jackson. "A few--
years ago -the-eixpense was
moved to the BOCC budget to
us help control that issue."
Another large item in the
BOCC budget is $30,200 for
communications; According to
Jackson, most of this funding
goes to pay for the Centrex
phone system used in county
offices. Atcording to Jackson
the county, pays more than
$1,000 per month for 'the
service.
In addition to the system, the
amount covers things like DSL
lines, fax lines and phone bills,
both landline and cellular.
According to Jackson, the
amount also covers the phone
bills of the tax collector's
office. It is the largest amount
any department spends on
communication in the county.
Other items included in the
budget are:
0lAttorney's fees-$20,000.
Accounting and auditing-
$55i0.
Workers' compensation-
$60,000.
Contingencies-$24,426.
The clerk of court's budget
is up only $3,000 over last
year. County Clerk Regina
Parrish's .salary will increase
by $2,000 this year. In contrast'
the office's operating expenses
are scheduled to be reduced by
$2,000 as well.
As of last year, the
department had been structured
to-be funded--by- the ..people
who used it. Article V set out
to change the way courts were
payed for. The resfracting set
the office up to be funded on a
fee-based structure. According
to Jackson,;until the fiscal year
is done,.it will, not be clear
whether or not this as .the--
case inUnion btority.
Tax Collector Patsy Jones
Elixson will 'alsO ,ee a $2,000
increase in her salary. This
year Elixson will make


for salary, operating expenses.
and payments on voting
machines all contributed to the
office's request for more
funding.
The Union County Fire
Department budget will see an
increase of more than $12,00(0.
More than half the increase
comes from an allotment of
$7,000 to the Worthington
Springs Fire Department. Last
year the budget had no money
for this line item.
The rest of the increase
comes from a hike in the
department's operating and
utilities line item. The
department will see.a $3,5(X)
increase in this area over last
year.
Another large general fund
item is the budget for the
courthouse. More than half of
the $119,043 scheduled to be
spent on the courthouse will
cover utilities. The budget
estimates the county will pay
$5,833 dollar per month for
services such as electric and
water. This amounts to
$70,000 per year. That figure
is up $10,000 over the
previous, year.
Another section of the
general fund for other
payments and general services
will cost taxpayers $134,318.
Most of the funds, $78.089,
Swill go toward payments on a
$1.2 million dollar loan the
-county took out with Capital
City Bank last year. Otber.
funds.-like a $160,000-donation
to the recreation board, a
$5,000 donation to the Acorn
Clinic, and $19,161 special
transfer to a capital account
will all come from this fund.
The county will also
increase its HRS payment'this
year. Under the welfare
program, the county is
proposing $200,000 go to
Medicaid payments. This is a
90 percent increase over the
$110,000 the county put in last
year. The increase will amount
to $253,400. Last year the
county estimated it would
spend $162,480 in this same
area.
While introducing the
budget, Chairman Wayne
Smith told his fellow
commissioners this was a
balanced budget.
"The budget presented is a
balanced one, but its getting
harder and harder to do that
each year-" said -Smith.
Smith sighted a lack in the
increase in revenue as the
primary reason for the
problem.

ROADS
Continued from p. 1A

help the department receive its
small increase in the upcoming
fiscal year. Secondary road
funds are estimated to be up by
more than $7,000 in the
upcoming year. An $11,500
increase in the special motor
fuel use tax will help the
department as well.
An expense that will use up
more than one-third of the
department's budget is salary
and wages. More than
$275,000 will go to pay the
employees of the department.
The 3 percent increase was
budgeted in for all county
employees. Road department
Superintendent Shelton Arnold
will see a $1,119 increase in
pay over the next 12 months.
More than $80,000 will be
split between the county's five
districts for road materials and
supplies. County Chairman
Wayne Smith's district, district
four, will receive more than
one-quarter of the funding. The
district is slated to receive
$23,610 for road repair and
improvement.
District two, represented by
Morris Dobbs, district three,
represented by Melaine "Red"
Clyatt, and district five,
represented by Ricky Jenkins,
will all receive $16,120 for
road repair and improvements.
District one, represented by
Karen Cossey, will receive
$9,700.
During a special meeting on
Aug. 8, at which time the
budget was first presented,
Cossey questioned why the
amounts were not all the same.
"Why does my district get
$9,700 when other districts are
getting $16,000 and $23,000?"
Cossey asked.
According to Smith,
approximately eight years ago,
the county conducted a study
to find out exactly how many
miles of roadway each district
contained. -
"From that study, the money
was divided based on the
actual amount on roadways in
each district," said Smith.
"This is where the figures
come from."
The county has actually
reduced the amount of money
being spent on each district
from the previous year. Each
district has $1,000 less than it
did inwthe,2004-OSfiscal'y6ai0:
* Health' insurance is another
large chunk of the budget. The
department will spend $48,300
to provide insurance to 11.5
employees. -Workers'
compensation will take another
$40,000 from the budget.
Repair and maintenance of
the department's present
equipment will cost $42,000.
Another $105,000 will be
spent on gas, oil and lubricants
for those vehicles. Loan
payments on the equipment-
will total $53,624.
The county has once again
cut out any escrow to go
toward the paving of roads in
the county. Local gas taxes
will be transferred to fund the
road department and pay off
loan payments for resurfacing
previously done. The transfer
and payments total $429,893.
This is the exact amount the
county estimates it will receive
from both the $.05 and ninth
cent local gas tax option. A
cash carryover of $60,000 is
also included on the revenue
side.
Commissioners will look at
the tentative budget over the
next several months. Final
approval is expected at the
board's regular meeting in
September.

By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On Aug. 8, the city of Lake
Butler introduced and held the
first reading of the city's
proposed nuisance law.
Ordinance 05-05 defines
what the city considers to be a
nuisance. The ordinance also
spells out the procedures that
must be followed in order for
the city to deal with these
issues. City Manager Richard
Tillis said the ordinance gives
"teeth" to the city's already
existing code enforcement
laws.
"This ordinance gives the
city an avenue to deal with
code enforcement violations,"
said Tillis.,"The procedures
give us the legal right to move
forward with abating a
nuisance."
The ordinance states that it is
the duty of every owner, lessee
or occupant of a lot to maintain
the premises in such a manner
that they shall at all times be
clean and sanitary and present
a neat and sightly appearance.
The ordinance defines a
nuisance as every condition or
activity in the city which is
offensive or prejudicial to the
health or general welfare of the
residents. Where the law does
not specifically define a
nuisance, the city's code
enforcement officer will have
the power to do so.
The ordinance defines many
conditions such as sanitary
nuisances, waste, and rubble
and debris as nuisances. As
defined by the ordinance waste
includes:
o Garbage, rubbish or refuse
from residential, commercial
or industrial activities.
Paper, wood scraps,
cardboard, cloth, glass, rubber'
and plastic.
o Discarded vehicles, tires or
vehicle parts or fixtures.
o Household goods, furniture
or appliances.
- Toys.
Tools or equipment or any
other similar equipment.


Rubble and debris are
defined as waste material
resulting from the construction
or demolition of structures or
buildings not useable as a part
of or for the construction or
demolition of structures or
buildings.
It also defines other
conditions that will be
considered a nuisance by the
city. The existence of
excessive accumulations or
untended growth of weeds,
overgrowth of lawn, grass or
weeds and stagnated water are
just some of the conditions that
could be declared public
nuisances. Others include:
Excessive accumulations
of rubbish, debris or trash
including any wrecked,
derelict or partially dismantled
motorized vehicles, trailer,
boat, machinery, household
appliance, plumbing fixture,
furniture or similar article.
o All other objectionable,
unsightly or unsanitary matter
upon any property within the
city to the extent that such
property is or may reasonably
become infested or inhabited
by rodents, vermin or wild
animals.
o Any matter that may
furnish a breeding place for
mosquitoes or threatens or
endangers the public health,
safety or welfare or may
reasonably cause disease or
adversely affect or impair the
economic welfare of the
adjacent property.
Animals are also covered in
the new law. It states that the
ownership of domestic animals
in such a quantity that noise,.
obnoxious odors or site
contamination becomes
objectionable to adjacent or
surrounding property owners
or residents shall constitute a
nuisance.
The ordinance gives the
code enforcement officer full
power to investigate and
enforce any and all provisions
of the ordinance. According to
Tillis, he will serve in that
capacity.


Once a property is
determined to be in violation,
the owner will be notified and
given 15 calender days to bring
the property into compliance.
If the owner fails to comply,
the city will have the right to
correct the problem and charge
the owner of the property for
it. The owner will then have 30
days to reimburse the city for
any costs incurred. If the costs
are not paid the city will have
the right to place a lien against
the property.
The ordinance also offers
property owners a chance to
disagree with "the city. If a
property owner feels they are
not in violation, they have 10
calender days to notify the city
of the disagreement. The code
enforcement board then has 15
days to convene to hear the
appeal.
If the board upholds the
code enforcement officer's
decision, the property owner
will have 15 calendar days
from the date of the decision to
bring the property into
compliance. The decision of
the board will be final.
Commissioners .approved the
the ordinance as presented in a
5-0 vote. They also approved a
special meeting for Monday,
Aug. 22, at 4 p.m. where the
ordinance will go through final
public hearing and approval.
In other city business
commissioners:
o Approved the renaming of
Maple Street to N.E. Second
Street and Myrtle Street to
N.E. Sixth Avenue.
Discussed the city's 2005-
06 tentative budget.
O Reviewed a letter from the
Florida Department of Health
that found no contaminants in
city's well.
o City Attorney John Maines
informed commissioners that
the city had closed on the
former city hall building.

Lake Butler
Singles
celebrate 15
years

By BUSTER RAHN
Telegraph Staff Writer


on July 30, the Lake Butler
ut Singles turned out 172 strong
ie to celebrate 15 years of dining
y and dancing, camaraderie and
be sharing for an evening of
a music by a live band.
te Festivities began at 6 p.m.,
ir with an outstanding meal of
good food prepared by club
:k members and buttressed by
*y mounds of fried chicken and
n baked ham. The main course-
ie filled three tables (24-feet
g long) and a separate table of
desserts to meet the taste of all
a gourmets.
11 All kinds of soft drinks, in
;r addition to coffee and tea,
g provided by the club,
,. guaranteed each palate would
: be pleased and satisfied..
s Seconds were encouraged, and
s yet, there was food left over.
e Beginning at 7 p,m., Tom
McMillian and his Wheelz, a
e favorite local band, provided
d an evening of music, from
y "Harbor Lights" to "Elvira,"
I from waltzes to fox trots to
e swing, a tune for every type
e dance, and members obliged
I with every step imaginable,
some original. Men led, and
d women followed, proving their
versatility to adjust to the
occasion.
Y Members and visitors came
o in all shapes and sizes, from
r slender to plump, from young
Y to old, with a single intent: to
have a good time and forget
r day to day problems. It's a
e proven program to break the
r mbnotony of humdrum living
f and get back into the world of
i activity.
The first singles dance in
SLake Butler was held Saturday,
SJune 9, 1990, by a group of
men and women that had been
r attending singles clubs in the
nearby towns of Keystone
Heights, Gainesville and
Palatka. Their original intent
was to hold a one-night stand,
but it went over so well a club
was formed tlAket Saftrday
nights in the Lake .uiler Civic
Center. ..
It has been a successful
Venture since its inception,
providing clean entertainment
for single-adults for 15 years.
The rules are simple, no
smoking in the building. no
drinking on city property and
married couples may continue
membership if one of them
was a member in good
standing prior to being
married,..-About a--- dozen-
married couples attend
regularly and continue to enjoy
dancing and dining with
friends.
In the past 15 years, perhaps
30 couples have made their
way to the alter after having...
met at the local dance, though,
admittedly, some failed the test
of time. The rate of successful
marriages among club
members is probably the same
as found in outside society.
Nonmember married couples
may attend the Saturday night
dances on occasion, as guests
of regular members; however,
married individuals are not
solicited without bringing his
or her spouse.
City Manager and Mrs.
Richard Tillis were guests of
the club at, the celebration
dinner and dance. Their
attendance was appreciated by
the club's membership. A
standing invitation is extended
to all who qualify and look
forward to a social life filled
with fun and activity. ,

QUEEN County
Continued from p. 1A approves

ile responding to call. Three three newW
years later, it's still fresh in his ,
mi.d. subdivisions
"You see lhi ,is like thi i anl


you know that could hb
Mindy," said .lames.
Goodwin said her father
worries about hler just as intuch.
"When I told my dad I had
passed my certification he said
'Well. good'," said Goodwin
"While I know he was proud
of me. I know he wasn't
thrilled aboutthe .idea of me
becoming a deputy."


Goodwin is pictured here
after winning the title of
homecoming queen in
1998.
i *


Whitehead said he had the
same reservations when
transferring Goodwin.
"It took me a long time to
finally give her the
authorization to make the
. transfer," said Whitehead. "But
she was persistent and had
shown she deserved a chance,
so I could not deny her that."
Whitehead said that one big
factor in the transfer was that
Goodwin knows the county;:.
.'"Being ,from Union County
gave.her a big advantage," said
Whitehead. "Knowing the
people and the places of the
county helps any deputy."
Another advantage both she
and Whitehead cited was- the
experience she had as a
dispatcher. Goodwin said it's a
totally different view from a
patrol car.
"As a dispatcher I could
never understand wh-y it took
so long for deputies or EMS
personnel to understand
directions," said Goodwin. "As
a dispatcher I got to look at the
big picture, which was the
map. Out in the field you can
only see what's in front of you.
It's given me a new found
respect for both sides."
In just five months of being
on the road, Goodwin said she
has-run into quite a few odd
situations.
"Just the other day I did a
wellness check on a woman
and was very surprised," said
Goodwin. "She came to the
door naked and very upset."
Av'wellne.ss check is whefi a
deputy checks on a person at
the- request of a family
member, friend or caregiver to
ensure they are safe. Goodwin
later. learned the lady had
gotten home from surgery the
day 15efore and was not taking
her;n-medication. The lady's
doctors have told Goodwin she
saved the woman's life.
Goodwin said that most of
her calls are not as exciting as
that one.
"A lot of my calls involve
getting keys out of a locked
vehicle, checking burglar
alarms or traffic control," said
Goodwin. "I deal with routine
calls like these most of the
day;"
Soon one more member of
the Goodwin family will be
dealing with strange and
routine calls as well. James
will- follow in his wife's
footsteps. He has been
accepted into Santa Fe
Community College's law--
enforcement program. He
begins his training later this
month.

Times Staff Writer


At special meeting on Aug.
4. county commissioners voted
5-0 to approve three new
subdivisions near. the
intersection of S.R. 238 and
S.R. 241.
Preliminary drawings of
Cooper's Run, Mackenzie's
Garden and Michael's Cove
were presented to
commissioners at the meeting.
Each subdivision is plotted to
have eight lots with each being
more than one acre in size. All
three are zoned for agricultural
use.
Grand Legacy. LLC of
Sebastian is the developer of
the property. Rebecca
Shephard was the company's
representative at the hearing.
She told commissioners that
the lots would be deed
restricted.
The plans show that each
subdivision is slated to have
traffic flow out on to S.R. 241.
Each will only have one way
to enter and exit. It also
specifies that each building
will be required to be 30 feet
from the front of the property
and 15 feet from the sides and
rear,
While Grand Legacy has not
been able to sell any of the lots
'prior to approval of the
development, Shephard did say
that the company had reserved
several of the lots for
prospective buyers.
While not expressing
opposition to the project,
Walter Tovkach did express
interest. According to the
property appraiser's office,
Tovkach owns 118 acres that is
adjacent to the development.
He asked the council to
provide him with specific
details about the project.
Chairman Wayne Smith
referred him to Shephard, and
Tovkach and Shephard
discussed the project privately
after the meeting.
Shepherd said the company .-
did not have an exact time
frame as to when the project
would move forward. She did
tell commissioners that Grand
Legacy was interested in
proceeding as soon as possible.

calling individuals by their first names,

the first names of only a few, but that

Most of us qualify for membership in

Usually when we, dance, with

Perhaps the biggest challenge we

someone comes down the aisle, greets
us with a hug and calls us by a first
name. We wonder, "Who in the world
is this? Did I meet her in Peoria or
Gatlinburg?" We mumble something'
about 'long time no see!" and hope he

Taxing mobile homes in Bradford
Perhaps you have never given a nobody has sent them a bill." Today,
thought to the taxing of mobile homes, mobile home owners receive billing for
home owner,.eare.,aw q pqy. to t.,therg re..
"U"'teJ- eily tax, although even ev 'oreaV esta e.


may, not know the procedures the
property appraiser and his staff go
through to find the correct formula and
make the correct charge.


Many variables concerning mobile
homes drive the taxing policy that
determines the amount of the property
tax and eligibility for homestead
exemption.
About 20 years ago, county officials
realized that many mobile homes were
not on the tax rolls and were not being
taxed. Failure to collect taxes on an
estimated 3,000 mobile homes in the
county represented a loss of about
$75,000 in property taxes, according to
an April 10, 1986, article in the
Telegraph.
The information concerning mobile
homes wasn't new. Commissioners had
attempted to address the issue three
years earlier and had instructed
Building Inspector Wayne Mundorff to
visit every mobile home in the county
and collect the tax, but the plan failed
when it was pointed out that Mundorff
lacked authority to go on private
property. That problem has been
corrected.
Zoning Board Chairman L.M.
Gaines complained that his department
didn't have time to take on the new
task and that Tax Collectoi Esther Hall
was responsible for collecting the tax.
However, he said, "Zoning board
workers are county employees and will
perform the duty if so instructed by the
commissioners."
Commission Chairman E.L. (Nook)
Norman replied, "Full speed ahead!"
Commissioner Lawrence Mosley,
then living in a mobile home, said
"Many mobile home owners don't
realize they owe anything, since,


Property Appraiser Jimmy Alvarez,
says there may be a few mobile homes
in the county that aren't on the tax roll,
but the county is on top of the situation.
and when untaxed mobile homes are
found, they are assessed five' years
back and added to the tax roll.
The primary means by which the
appraiser learns about new or
replacement mobile homes and new.
construction of all types, is through
building permiits. When an old mobile
home is replaced by a newer one or
when a mobile home is placed on
property for the first time, there should
be a move-on permit issued by the
county building department. When the
appraiser's office receives notice of the
permit an employee visits the site to
take measurements and to collect other
characteristics of the mobile home for
valuation.
"We don't actually adjust the taxes,
we adjust the value. The amount of
taxes is then based on the tax rates
levied by the various taxing
authorities." says Alvarez.
Many other: variables are taken into
consideration for tax purposes and will
be discussed in a subsequent article.
Mobile homes play an important part
in providing housing for Americans
throughout the nation, particularly in
the South, where severe cold isn't a
problem, but that, too, is changing.
Federal standards for construction of
mobile homes have improved
weaknesses of prior years, and those.
built in recent years are comparable to,
site-built homes, according to
spokesmen for the industry.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Reader slams.
Winn-Dixie
Dear Editor:
It is regrettable that the
Starke Winn-Dixie can never
check people out in a timely
manner. Through many years,
and thousands of dollars spent
in our hometown store, we are.
still not treated to the courtesy
of. having our groceries


checked-out without standing
in line and waiting....always.
Specifically, there are never
enough check-out clerks.
I note that we do not see
these waits in the Gainesville
WDs, or in competitive stores
in Gainesville. But it becomes
a dread to go to the "best and
largest" store in Starke and
wait.
As a company, yqu spend
large sums of money on


promotions, cleaning the isles,
stocking the. shelves, and'
glossy advertising. But our last
impression as your customer is
standing and waiting behind
three or four other people to
check out, and those many
minutes of waiting make a
lasting impression.
We look forward to' an'
alternative to this in the future.

Editoria I/Opinion

Thursday, August 11, 2005 Page 4B


I was recently dining with friends in
an exclusive establishment when the
subject of remembering came up. A
woman at our table mentioned she was
a member of a club whose name is
CRS, the letters standing for "Can't
Remember Some (thing, place or
, person)," and I realized immediately
that I had all the credentials for
membership.
It's a great club, and virtually
everyone over age 60 is eligible. There
are no application forms, no meetings
to attend, no ,dues and even the,
minimum age is flexible. You realize
you are eligible when one day you
walk into a room, and wonder what
you came in for, or halfway on a
staircase you stop and wonder if you
were going up or down. The final proof
of membership eligibility is to meet
someone on the street and have no idea
of his or her name although you
recognize the face.
The situation is embarrassing, but
one can escape humiliation by
claiming membership in the CRS
organization and explaining to the
familiar face the tenets of the club. If

Former Greyhound driver Shannon is in no hurry


By LINDA ZCHORR
Telegraph Staff Writer '
It was sad news to the bus
driver from Starke when his
local stop closed-on June 21
with 32 others in the state. His
stop on U.S. 301 in Starke was
where old and new faces
would board and ride along
with him, learning the beauty
and history of countryside.
"Being a paid tourist" was
the. reason Bob Shannon took
i to the Greyhound bus steering.
wheel for 26 years, and he'd
tell you that the true touring
experience can only be
experienced on the ground.
Although his wife, Jean, can
brag of six flights, when asked
why he doesn't fly, he simply
replied, "Because I'm not in a
hurry."
Driving a bus has taught
Shannon that one cannot stop
and smell the roses from an
airplane. One must'be on the
ground, and if the pace is
decreased, the trip shall be all
the more enriching.
At nearly 65 years old, he
claims he never has-and
never will-fly. His flight
experience began and ended
with a walk.through a parked
airplane, and he has no regrets.


He believes the subtle
changes that take place in
culture and in the environment
would surely be missed by
someone traveling in the
clouds. "If I can't get there by
car, bus or thumb, I ain't
going," he said.
When visiting Lake Louise
in Alberta, Canada, he noted
some changes in the landscape.
The parking lot had expanded,
forcing him and his wife to do
extra walking. Trees had been
replaced by a hotel, he noted.
A young boy on a bike rode by
and even commented to his
friend, "It just isn't the same
anymore," reaffirming
Shannon's advocacy for
ground travel.
"You miss things when
you're in a plane," 'Shannon
said, remembering one
October when he drove up I-
87, which intertwined with the
old road, to Montreal and saw
Halloween decorations and
treats along the way.
"We're living too fast. You
don't get the local experience
and meet everybody," he said.
West of Dodge City, he saw
evidence of how far modern
transport had come, tracks left
by a covered Conestoga
wagon. He also beheld the
sights of a 100-foot drop water


well dug by Union troops and
fossilised dinosaurs being
excavated in Vernall, Utah.
The Grand Canyon and
Yellowstone National Park
rounded out his memorable
ground sightings.
One regret he had about the
job was that the long hours and
miles that kept him away from
his family. He regrets missing
out on births and seeing his
children, 'particularly his
grandchildren, growing up.
There is one youngster in the
family who he did manage to
be with, though, his 5-year-old
grandson, Skylar.
Just before starting another
trip to Alaska with Clay
County senior citizens,
Shannon received word that he
was a bearer of gallstones.
He embarked on a new kind
of trip, one that didn't involve
a bus: a trip- to the hospital.
Recognizing the obvious
conflict between needing to be
near a hospital and needing to
be on long runs in remote
locations, he had no choice but
to face an important issue: his
health.
Additionally, a heart surgery
seven years ago forced him to
retire, but in August he'll be
looking at his 65" birthday.
Shannon's son Kim, the one


who his daddy postponed h',
starter year at Greyhound to be
home by his side for, is no'w.
50. Shannon's other sons and
daughters, Robert, Bill and
Jenny, are now 42, 41 and 43.
respectively. Shannon has six
other grandchildren: Brittne\
(19), James (13), Hunter (ll i.
Andy (14), Kaleigh (11) and
Christopher (10).
For Shannon, this couldn't
have just been all about getting
.a paycheck; he still loves
pe0ople'ind big w heels. such as
trains, trucks, and, of course.
buses.
He keeps busy keeping track
and keeping in touch with. oM
classmates and buddies from
his bus and trucking travels
He has volunteered his time
and skills towards a class
reunion, which he saw through
to completion;
Both he and Jean agreed that
he is a skilled people-watcher.
He enjoys watching people
stroll by at malls and such.
He's made lots of friends in his
travels, and it seems thai
wherever the couple, goes, he
runs into someone that know s
him from somewhere.
Shannon owns treasure
boxes full of Greyhound and
other bus memorabilia, and
personal accomplishments
from his career. The organized
man has a vast collection of
portraits., personally snapped of
many bus drivers, many of
whom are now deceased.
He believes Greyhound had
good drivers: In the 1970s
there were 4,000 to 5,000 of
them and together they drove
over a million miles a day, he
said. Some lasted .40 years
with no accidents to speak of
in over three million miles, he
added. Shannon himself said
he had driven over two million
miles in 26 safe years as a
Greyhound bus driver,
He recently dug up a
surprise at a flea market: a
printed Greyhound schedule
that listed a fare from Starke to
Jacksonville, which was just
$0.45.


Greyhound Bus Operator Bob Shannon has endless
memoirs, memorabilia and awards to preserve a solid
past career that still lives on in his heart.

What is known as "the.
grocery store" in Lake Butler
is now also "the grocery store"
in Baldwin.
Thanks to an economic
development grant, the town of
Baldwin was able to build its
first grocery store-a Spires
IGA Express on the corner of
S.R. 90 and U.S. 301.
"We're tickled to death,"
Marvin Godbold, Baldwin's
mayor, said.
A grand opening celebration
was held May 4. It included
members of the Baldwin
council, the Baldwin High
School band, the contractor
and engineers who worked on
the project and members of the
Spires family. Owner Tommy
Spires said there .must have
been 50-60 people out to
celebrate the store's opening.
"We had a great grand
opening," Spires said.
Baldwin was the recipient of
an economic' development
grant in the amount of
$660,000 and it appeared as if
the town was, at first, going to
get a drug store. People from
Baker County were interested
in the project, but they
eventually moved out of state,
Godbold said.
The town then looked into
the possibility of having a
grocery store built and


eventually contacted Higdon
Grocery Company in Cairo,
Ga. to see if there were any
retailers in the area interested
in the project. Higdon supplies
Spires IGA and that's when
Tommy Spires first heard of
Baldwin's interesting a store.
Spires and Godbold
eventually met each other to
discuss the matter.
"I was really impressed with
(Spires') business attitude and

ethics," Godbold said.
The town of Baldwin put up
an additional $200,000 toward
the construction costs of the
project,. while approximately
$400,000 came from Spires'
end to get the store read. for
business. Spires leases the
store from the ton of
Baldwin:.
Ricky Starling, Tommy
Spires' son-in-law, who,
supervises both the Baldwin
store and the Spires IGA,
Express in Lake City, said he


and the Spires fanmil had, and
still have, a great relationship
v.ith Gdbold and the town of
Baldwin throughout the
process.
"They've welcomed us with
open arms,".Starling said.
Said Godbold: "We couldn't
have picked a better family to
be a part of our family."

Keystone Heights enters season as tight-knit group


Editor's note: Football

up to the first regular season
game. Coaches' availability to

the order of publication.

They were close.
The Keystone Heights
Indians of 2004 almost earned
their first postseason berth
since 1998 before losing out
on the opportunity in a district
tiebreaker.
Still, Chuck Dickinson,
entering his'seventh year as
head coach, said last season

was his most enjoyable.
"Last year's team was
probably the first team I had
that really played together as a
complete team and believed
that they were never out of a
game," Dickinson said.
Returning senior Michael
Williams gives every
indication that this year's team
will also be a "complete" team.
He said the players are a tight-
knit group-hanging around
each other on and off the field.
"We're brothers and we all
look after each other," said
Williams, a defensive back and
running back. "If one person
falls down, the rest of the team
is going to be there to pick him
up. We just work hard together
to get it done."
What the team did last year
was go 6-3 and force a three-
way tie atop its district.
Williams said that was a credit
to last year's seniors and it is
up to this year's seniors to

build upon that.
"The seniors set the bar high
and gave us something to
measure ourselves against,"
Williams said. "They really
came together as a team and
showed us-whether we're
behind or ahead-we can
always win the games if we
really put our minds to it and
try."
Whether or not the Indians
put together another winning
season may depend upon how
healthy the team remains.
Keystone faces a lack of depth
in several areas, such as the
defensive backfield and the
offensive line.
"We've got to stay away
from injuries to have a chance
to do anything," Dickinson
said.
Williams, Riki Olivier
(junior), Nick Salsbery (senior)
and Greg Taylor (sophomore)
will most likely be the starting
four in the secondary, but
Dickinson is still evaluating
his offensive line. Junior
Adam Bailey and senior David
Thomas are two returning
starters on the line and lineman
Brandon McGuire (junior) has
also seen a lot of action.
"We've got some younger,
kids, some sophomores, who
are probably going to have to
see time there and start,"
Dickinson said.
Brandon Boettcher and
Tommy Fowler are two of
those sophomores, while junior
Nik Brokas may also be
counted upon.
Some, players who would
not normally play on the line
may have to do so out of
.necessity. Dickinson, however,
said this group of players is"
receptive to making a position
switch.if it's-to help make the


lE .


team better.
"They know the ultimate
goal is to win the football
game," Dickinson said. "I
think they have the attitude,
'We'll do whatever it takes to
get to that point.'"
Keystone has to fill several
holes on offense. Junior Blake
Lott steps in at; quarterback for
graduate Tyler Davis and
junior Phillip Journey looks, to
be the possible starting tight
end, taking over for graduate
Caleb Whitfield. Olivier,
Salsbery: and Josh Mangus
(junior) will play wide receiver

and Dickinson said he hopes
one of them will be able to
have the impact that graduate
Chad Hapner had.
The offensive backfield does
return leading rusher Wil
Breton (senior), who will also
be joined by Taylor, Williams,
Daniel Crapse (senior) and
Tony Hamner (senior).
Several of the backs will
also be counted on as receivers
in certain formations. Breton
has already proven to be a
valuable asset in that regard.
"He had quite a lot ,of
catches last year," Dickinson
said. "We put him out there in
a spread (formation) and had
him run routes. I think he's got
some good hands and he's got
some speed."
Dickinson is also hoping
Williams can be a key
component of the offense this
year.
"He's mainly played for us
defensively, but hopefully this
year he'll be able to play some
offense and have a big
impact," Dickinson said.'
However, when it comes to

on the defensive side..of the
.ball. He said. he will probably


rotate his running backs quite a
bit throughout games because
several of them are also
starters on defense.
"We've got to be able to
play good defense to win,"
Dickinson said. "If it comes
down to where a kid's going to
play, he might have to see
more time on the defensive
side."
Some key returners on
defense, besides Williams in
the secondary, are returning

hurricane prep

By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors
Editor

What a year for storm
activity! We've already had so
many tropical depressions,
storms and hurricanes that we
may run out. of letters. for
names-we are on number.
nine now (Irene).
If this keeps up, we may
need to double up on letters or
use other words, like Aardvark
(animal), (animal), BB.(gun),
Chad (as in "hanging"') or
DoDo (bird.). Or perhaps we
could just switch over to
naming the hurricanes after
batteries-AA, AAA, AAAA,
C,D, 9V, 6V and 12V!

Preparedness
In addition to all the lists
available to the public, the
Outdoorsman 'may want to
double check to see if he has
the basics on hand- food,


water, bug spray, the
aforementioned 'batteries, a
smialtl- generator, and, of
course, .the number one
survival item of all time, duct
tape.

Check list
Food-woods and water
sportsmen all' know the three
basic food groups: sardines,
Vienna sausages and :saltine
crackers. These three can carry
the sportsman for weeks
(toothbrush included).
Water-bottled water, stored
up in advance, is the best
source. With no electricity to
run your pump, this is the one
thing .ou don't want to
'overlook having.
Bug spray-canned sprays,
Skin So Soft and the trusty
Thermacell are all life savers,
especially when the AC is
gone and you need to get out
of the house, while waiting it,
all out.
A small generator-great for
hooking up the \'CR and one
TV and watching your favorite
hunting or fishing video while
the stuff in your freezer is

Probably closer to 200,
Dickinson said.
Hamner is just 170 pounds,
but that hasn't stopped him
from being effective at
nosetackle. Dickinson said
Hamner's quickness has much
to do with his strong play.
"Usually one person can't
block him on that line,"
Dickinson said. "He gives
centers a fit."
Drew Lowery .is a key loss'
for Keystone at linebacker, but.
Dickinson is hoping Jack
Taylor, who played well last
year. is ready to step in and fill
that void.
Brokas will also have his
chance to contribute at
linebacker, while McGuire.

Hardin will most likely
resume his punting duties from
last season, but the team is
looking for a new placekicker
after Hapner's graduation.
Michael McLeod looks to step
in there.
"He's got a strong leg,"
Dickinson, said. "Hopefully he
can kick some in the end zone
and make opponents, start at
the 20."
Keystone will be playing in
District 3, along with
Bradford, Interlachen and
WestNassau, who werealso'in
,the district las,tlyear wi th te
Indians. However, two new
teams in the district are Ribault
and perennial power Bolles.
Dickinson admits he' does
not know much about Ribault,
but he" sees Interlachen as an.
improving team and Bradford
and West Nassau similar to his
team in terms of the number of
players lost to graduation by
each team.
Bolles, of course, which
won the Class 3A
championship last year, will be'
expected to" win the district.
Keystone gets its shot at Bolles
early, hosting the Bulldogs on
Sept. 9. It will be Keystone's
first district game.
"People won't give anybody
a chance to beat them, but
you're got to get your kids tob
believe that they can, beat
anybody on any given day,"
Dickinson said.
Williams agrees that
believing is the key.
"If we're intimidated or
scared, then there's no way we,
can win." Williams said. "If
we think it's possible (to beat
them), then it's possible."

Shown at the recent supervisor of elections meeting are (1-r): Nita Crawford, Baker
County; Jerry Holland, Duval County; Babs Montpetit, Union County; Terry Vaughan,
Bradford County; Peggy Rae Border, Flagler County; Barbara Kirkman, Clay
County; Vicki Cannon, Nassau County; and Penny Halyburton, St. Johns Co.


Dist. 5 supervisors of election meet in Clay County


On Aug. 3, the Clay County
Elections Office hosted the
Florida State Association of
Supervisors of Elections
(FSASE) District 5 Legislative
Committee Meeting.
District 5 encompasses Baker,
Bradford, Clay, Duval, Flagler,
Nassau, St. Johns and Union
counties. Supervisors and staff
from all eight counties were rep-
resented at the gathering.
Legislative concerns were dis-
cussed and new laws recently
passed by the Legislature.
,"The Election Laws have
changed dramatically over the 10
years I've been with the Clay
County Elections Office," said
Clay County Supervisor of


Elections Barbara Kirkman.
"Each year we need to address
concerns our voters and mem-
bers of the FSASE have regard-
ing the election process."
Kirkman went on to say, "It
was a brainstorming and strate-
gic planning meeting. It is great
to be able to network with the
surrounding counties and see
how we can all work together for
the betterment of local elections
and service to the public."
The FSASE presents legisla-
tive issues to the florida
Legislature. One important piece
of legislation presented and
passed during the 2005
Legislative Session was the elim-
ination of the second primary.


Poor voter turnout was one rea-
son this elimination was pursued.
"We spent a considerable amount
of tax dollars to hold an election
with an average turnout of less
than 15 percent. The process is
still the same whether there is a
90 percent or a 15 percent
turnout.
Ballots and supplies still need
to be ordered, polling locations
have to be staffed; branch offices
must also be staffed and we now
have Early Voting at several
locations for 15 days prior to
each election. All of these things
cost tax dollars," Kirkman said.
Another meeting is scheduled
for sometime in October.


Ricky Starling (far right) is the supervisor of the Baldwin Spires IGA Express.

manager).


SPIRES
Continued from p. 3C
saiiE Godbold said the store is
recei. ing 'visitors from places
such as Macclenny, Maxville
and Whitehouse.
The store, at 8,500 square
feet, may look small, but
Godbold said "there are
enough groceries there to fill
your cupboard."
_._"It's really been an asset to
the western part of Duval
County," Godbold said.
The Spires' history in the
grocery business dates back
more than 100 years when


Tommy's grandparents,
George W. and Zona Spires,
opened a store, located in the
midway area of Union County,
in the late 1800s. That store
stocked cloth, tobacco and
snuff products, farming
supplies, horse supplies and
household items.
The store moved to its
current location in Lake Butler
in 1923. It began selling more
grocery items and eventually
joined the Pleasing Food Store
chain.
Fernie Spires, Tommy's
father, took over as store
manager in the early 1940s.
The store eventually, merged
with Winn Lovette stores,


which later became known as
Winn Dixie. The "store's
association with IGA
(Independent Grocers
Alliance) began in 1961. ,
Tommy became store
manager in 1972.
The store had to be rebuilt
after it was destroyed by fire in
1990. -The result was a larger
facility that included a deli and
bakery along with more
grocery items.
In e2003 Spires Family
Pharmacy opened for business
inside the store.
Mike Spires, Tommy's son,
is currently manager of the
Lake Butler store.

work with families of deployed
National Guardsmen. They
also raised money for three
charities in the Gainesville and
Orlando areas and participated
in a variety of leadership
development workshops to

Finally the closing banquet
recognized graduating seniors,
and outstanding 4-H
volunteers. Crawford, during
the installation of state 4-H
officers, was installed as
president of the State 4-H
Council. She will represent
more than 250,000 4-H
