Report reveals who gave premission to cut trees


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On Dec. 19, Union County
Clerk of Courts Regina Parrish
issued a report to the Union
County Board of County
Commissioners that "would
put to rest the speculation and
conjecture" regarding the
removal of tress from the O.J.
Phillips Recreational Complex:
"In an effort to set the record
straight, I have interviewed all
parties involved," Parrish said.
The report details an
investigation, done by Parrish'
concerning more than six
truckloads of pine trees being
removed -from the complex
without the county commission


authorizing it. The report finds
that Dennis Crawford, then
president of' the Union County
Recreation Board, gave
permission to Elixson Timber
Company to remove the trees.
He believed he had the
permission of county
commission Chairman Wayne
Smith to do so.
What the: report fails to
address is the exact number of
trees removed. It also does not
state where the trees were
'taken to be milled, nor the
grade the trees were given.
Timber is sold in various
grades and paid for
accordingly. It also did not
address the fact that Smith had
made previous statements that

The selfless act of one young
child has helped several adults
around Union County get into
the holiday spirit of giving.
The story begins with. a
young girl who decided to give
to those who had nothing.
After having a birthday party,
in which see received several
gifts, she decided that she
wanted t,-give those gifts .to
children in the Gulf Coast
region. She realized that the
survivors from hurricanes
Katrina and Rita would not
have much of anything.
She decided the best way she
could help was to give all the
gifts she had received to the
survivors. To help her
accomplish this, her mother
turned to a child abuse
prevention agency to ask how
her child could donate' gifts to
children in the disaster area.
The agency directed her to
Marc Cantrell, a contractor
Who had been working with
the agency for a number of
years. Ever since the disaster,
Cantrell has been making
regular trips to Mississippi to
help those effected. The girl's
' mother contacted Cantrell, and
he agreed to take the donations
for the child.
The young girl's idea spread
to Cantrell. He set up a small
Christmas tree in the comer of
his church. He placed several
pictures of children from
Mississippi on a board next to
it. Soon, members of his
church were bringing toys and ,,
gifts to give to the children.
One church member even
donated a stove and
refrigerator. With so many
donations, Cantrell knew he
couldn't get all the donations
there himself.
He asked for help, and John
Brown, father-in-law of Union
County Public Library Director
Mary Brown, accepted the

Bruce Dukes was involved in
the decision to have the trees
cut.
According to the report, a
scheduled meeting on or about
Dec. 7, 2004 began the first
discussion of the removal. It
took place in the offices of
community commission. Smith
was meeting with Crawford
and other unspecified
individuals regarding
purchasing an additional van
for use by the county inmate
work squads. The report-states
that at some point during the
meeting Crawford brought to
the attention of Smith the
crucial safety concerns
regarding the trees.
In discussing the safety


concerns, Crawford stated that
several parents had contacted
him regarding children playing
among the trees while
motorists were driving and
parking in the same area.
Additional safety concerns
were raised about trees being
too close to building and
.power lines, which created
other hazards.
Yet another safety concerned
addressed was concern that
baseballs from one playing
field were making their way
onto other fields. The report
states that there was concern
that a child could have been
struck by an arrant ball.
The report states that plans
were made to reposition one


field of particular concern to
avoid injuries. It does not state
who made these plans. It also
does not state who authorized
the plan.
According to the report,
Crawford asked Smith if he
could have some of the trees
cut to alleviate the safety
issues. Crawford states that.
Smith instructed him to contact
Alfred Elixson of Elixson
Timber Company to inquire
about the removal of the trees.
In previous statements,
Smith has denied giving
permission for the trees to be
cut. While not recanting this

When Santa made his rounds in Union County recently he got a very unusual
request. While visiting the children at the Tigers Den Daycare, childcare worker
Jeanna Box, pictured on Santa's lap, asked him to bring her a boyfriend. Santa
told her while her request was quite out of the ordinary, he'd see what he could
do for her. Santa visited all the classes at the daycare while visiting. While some
children were very receptive to the Jolly old elf, other wanted nothing to do with
him. For more pictures from Santa's visit, see pages 6-7A.

A fire that was started by a
Christmas tree has left one
Raiford family looking for a
home for the holidays,
On Dec. 14, fire units from
the .Union County Volunteer
Fire Department,. Union
County Emergency Medical
Services and Lake Butler.
Volunteer Fire Department
responded to a house on N.E.
223 Ave. (Sapp Cetnetery
Road) in Raiford. When fire
.crews arrived, they. found the
house partially involved with
flames venting from the center.
According to a report from
Fire Chief Allen Parrish, crews
made an initial attack on the
fire from the home's front door
and windows. Once
firefighters contained the seat
of the fire to the center of the
home, an interior attack was
initiated by another incoming
crew. The seat of the fire was
extinguished and allowed
crews tol begin helping the
family salvage what
belongings it could.
According to his report,
Parrish interviewed the home
owner, who said the house had
been unattended for
approximately 15-20 minutes.
The owner advised Parrish that
the only thing left on in the
home was the lights on the
Christmas tree.
Parrish determined that the
point of origin of the fire was
where the tree had been. After
speaking with an investigator
from the fire marshal's office
and the homeowner, both were
satisfied with Parrish's
determination.
Crews were called out at
7:53 p.m. and were on scene
within 14 -minutes. It took
them 30 minutes to bring the
fire under control. The crews
were on the scene for more
than two and a half hours
before completely finishing
their tasks.
No one was hurt in the fire,
and the house was declared a
total loss.

REPORT
Continued from p. 1A

statement, the report reveals
that out of respect for those
individuals involved, Smith
does not deny that he may
have given Crawford
permission to have the trees
cut.
"He states that he does not
remember it," Parrish said.
Parrish sited the fact that the
conversation took place eight
months earlier and it may be
hard for Smith to remember his
ekact words.
"Taking into consideration
that Mr. Smith conducts an
extraordinary amount of
meetings during the course of
many months," Parrish said.
"It is conceivable that Mr.
Smith did not recall the initial
discussion."
In the report, Parrish also
states that Smith also had the
expectation that Crawford
would have gathered the
information about cutting the
trees down and report back his
findings before acting further.
"When this did not occur, he
(Smith) apparently dismissed
the conversation from his
mind," Parrish said.
"Presumably expecting that if
any further attention was to be
given to the matter, he would
hear back from Crawford."
*The report also suggests that
because Crawford was not a
county employee, he had no
knowledge of county policy.
According to the report,
Crawford, not being a county
employee, was unaware of any
policy that would have
required any further approval
than the one he believed
himself to have been given by
Smith.
* "Mr Crawford clearly
believed himself to be acting
upon instructions from the
chairman of the county
commission," Parrish said.
The report goes on to state
that, subsequent to the Dec. 7
meeting, Crawford contacted
Elixson and met with him at
the recreation complex. This
took place within a few weeks
of the initial meeting. Elixson
stated that initially he did not
want to cut the trees at all.
The report states that
Elixson's company normally
cuts larger tracts of timber and
to cut the small amount of
timber that needed to be
removed would be quite costly.
After further discussion,
Elixson agreed to take the job.
"But only because it was for
the safety of the children and
for the recreation board,"
Parrish said.
During the course of the
meeting Elixson informed
Crawford that the county
would be required to pay him
for services rendered. Elixson
and Crawford agreed to a flat
fee of $1,200. The report does
not state exactly how Elixson
,was paid.
It does go on to state that
Elixson compensated the
recreation board by giving it
$1,500. It is not clear if these
funds were proceeds from the
sale of the trees. After
questions began to surface
about the trees being cut, the
money was then turned over to
the county commission.

"At no point in time did Mr.
Elixson or Mr. Crawford
believe themselves to be
operating in any manner
inconsistent with county
policy, or contrary to the
wishes of those responsible for
county land," Parrish said.
The report goes on to state
that approximately eight
months later, in July 2005, a
second meeting took- place
between Crawford and
Elixson. Crawford, Elixson
and Elixson's son, Mason, met
at the complex. At this time
Crawford and Mason Elixson
rode around the complex
identifying trees that were to
be removed.
According to the report,
several important factors had
to be considered in performing
the job. Trees located close to
buildings, power lines and
septic tanks were factors -that
had to be taken into account.
"Normally this was a task
which would require a skilled
tree surgeon at a higher cost,"
Parrish said.
The time the job was to be
performed had to also be taken
- into consideration. According
to the report, it had to be dome
when there was a minimum
amount of activity at the
"complex. This would require
timber company employees to
work weekends. It has been
speculated that the removal of
trees took place late at night.
The report did not state exactly
what time the removal took
place.
According to the report, the
need for additional employees
to sweep access roads, rainy
weather and wet soil all made
the job more difficult to
perform.
"While there were a few
trees easily accessible, the
removal of the trees was
difficult," Parrish said.
The report also briefly
addresses the value of the
trees. The report states that
there are numerous ways to
calculate that value. Tonnage,
number of loads, number of
cords, the size of the trees and
the grade of the trees can all be
factored into estimating how
much it, will cost a timber
company to cut trees. It does
not address how many trees
were cut, their condition or the
price oft4timber at the time they
were cut.
"When you compare the
value versus -the cost, neither
side in this situation profited
more than the other," Parrish
said.
In the conclusion of the
report, Parrish states that while
it appears that poor judgement
and failure to follow proper
protocol were present, there
was absolutely no criminal
intent in any actions by the
parties involved.
"Unfortunately, lack of
communication, simple
misunderstandings, a busy
schedule and media attention
has resulted in a much-too-
publicized, finger pointing
scandal," Parrish said.
It goes on to say that the
efforts to address significant
safety issues regarding the
children of the county -have
been clouded by the questions
of lost profits.
"The cutting and removal of
the trees was never intended to
be a money making venture for
the county," Parrish said.

"When taking into
consideration the many factors
involved with the cutting of the
timber, the value of the trees in
question is negligible. Some
well-meaning citizens saw the
need to ensure the safety of our
youth and took action."
During the investigation,
Parrish met with Tim Coleman
of the accounting firm of
Douglas, Douglas and
Farnsworth. This is the same
accounting firm the county
contracts to perform it's yearly
audit.
According to the report,
Coleman's findings show that
the removal of the trees in
question was never intended to
be a profit-making venture for
the county or the recreation
board.
"The only parties to receive
any significant benefit were
the children of Union County,"
Parrish said.
Parrish also said the concerns
raised about the trees were
very appreciated.
"The concerns and questions
raised by some members of the
county and commission and
certain members of the public
are very much acknowledged
and appreciated," Parrish said.
"The- efforts of these
individuals ensure a better and
more informative county
government."
Upon the advice of Coleman,
Parrish recommends in her
report that the county look at
the Recreational Complex
Agreement that was
established in May 1989.
"It should be updated and
reviewed," Parrish said.
"Certain procedures should be
clarified and brought before
the entire board. The
procedures concerning how the
recreation board can make
-changes or modifications to the
complex should be included in
the revised agreement."
The recommendation went
further, suggesting periodic
financial accounting measures
be placed into operation. The
report states, in turn, that the
county should make every
effort to educate recreation
board members on county
policies and procedures.
The report is signed by
Smith, Crawford and Elixson.
Above the signatures the report
states "As a show of good
faith, all parties involved have
; read and approved .these
statements as indicated by the
signatiiures below."
At the end of the report,
Commissioners Ricky Jenkins,
who first brought the issue to
light, shook hands with Smith
saying "I'm glad all this is
behind us now."

task. He had seen the disaster
the month before and was
planning a mission trip to
Pearlington, Miss. Brown even
donated the money to pay for
the cost of the trip.
After he had agreed to make
the trip, he contacted Mary.
The local Toys for Kids
program, which she heads up,
gave the caravan even more
items to take. Several bicycles
and handmade bears were
donated to make the trip. The
group got so many donations it
was forced to leave some
behind because they simply
did not have the room.
Once in Pearlington, the
gifts were given to a church
group. They planned to
distribute the gifts in the
church and among community
members. The group had so
much they were able to give
some of the items to a local
school as well.
A local volunteer, named
Claudia, had set up a Santa's
workshop at the school. She
allowed parents to come and
pick out presents for their
children.
The refrigerator was given to
a couple that still had a shed.
According to Cantrell, all the
gifs were"greatly appreciated
by their recipients.
And it all started with the
sacrifice from a child at a
birthday party and a child in a
manger," Cantrell said. "I am
thankful to be part of a mission
that is made of love and
giving."

Call before
you dig-
be safe


Sunshine State One Call of
Florida, Inc. wants a message
sent to everyone in Florida.
That message is "call before
you dig." There is a Florida
law that requires anyone doing
any digging anywhere in the
state to first call Sunshine
State One Call at (800) 432-
4770. The company's goal is
to prevent costly damages to
underground utility lines and
cables and loss of services tor
businesses and the public.
Unfortunately, damage and
sometimes personal injuries do
occur because companies fail
to call Sunshine State One Call
two full business days before
they start a project that
involves excavation.
Remember to 'call before you
dig.

Mary Brown and Marc Cantrell load bicycles onto a truck and trailer in preparation
for Cantrell to take the bikes to Pearlington, Miss. The trip was made after young
girl decided to give up 30 birthday presents she received and offer them to victims
of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The girl's generosity led to several people donating
to the cause and helping make a brighter Christmas for children in the Gulf Coast
region.














On Dec. 1, the 7th annual
irrigation program Holiday
Hog Roast was held on the
Lake City Community College
campus.
The hog roast was a
smorgasbord of smoked pork
and deer and a variety of
dishes made by faculty,
students, and staff. New on the
menu this year was delicious
Nettfes sausage and Outlaws
country ribs. This is a
campuswide and irrigation
industry appreciation luncheon
that is very popular.
Donations were. requested
and over $700 was raised for
" the irrigation student club and
Florida Association of
Community Colleges members
who joined in on the work.
' This year's annual Bruce
Hague Memorial Scholarship
Award went out to Ramsey
Baughman of Okeechobee. It
was presented by Irrigation
Professor Steven King.
On the morning of the
event, the Industry Advisory
Committee for the Irrigation
Management program met to
discuss program enhancements
and industry involvement and
support of the program.
Industry members present
". included, John Hemphill,
chairman, Hunter Industries;
Clark Graham, Nelson Corp.,
Jacksonville; Matt Eaton,
North Florida Irrigation,
Jacksonville; Tom Shannon,
Ewing Irrigation, Deere
Landscapes, James Jenkins,
Dopsons Woods and Water,
Orlando; Christen Buckner,
Sunstate Landscaping,
Sarasota; Dave McCall,
Florida Irrigation Supply,
Orlando; and Jeff Davis,
Rainbird, Orlando.
Sponsors for the event were,
Nettles Sausage, Kurt Ruppert,
Grass Solider, Lake City,
Southeastern Metal Products,
Inc., Lake City; Munzycs
Motors, Inc., Lake.City; Lori
Demis, LCCC graduate,
Cheryl Fetters, Lake City; Pete*
Olin Auto Parts, Lake City;


Paul Waters of Lake Butler and Steven King Irriagtion
instructor at LCCC taste some of the food available at
the barbeque. The event raised more than $700 for the
irrigation and landscape club.


Scott Outlawv, Outlaw Tree
Service, Lake City; Texas
Roadhouse, Lake City; Hunter
Industries, John Hemphill,
Orlando; and Claude St. Pierre,
Quail Heights Golf Club, Lake
City. Among the notables
present were Sheriff Bill
Gootee and Doug and Yvonne
Lang from the New
Millennium, several alumni,
faculty and staff of LCCC.,
Paul Waters, former student.
and owner of Westside Feed in
Jacksonville, was behind the
grill doing what he is known
for-making people stuffed.
The LCCC chapter of the
FACC, headed by Doris
Godwin, accounts payable
supervisor and FACC
president, and the staff served
the delicious meal and took
tickets at the door. Their
chapter has led FACC the past
several years and they are a
great asset to the team. One of
the biggest draws ever to come
into LCCC, the highly
talented, the master of all
chefs, and a legend in the
world of fine and fun dinning,
Chef Will and his staff
prepared all the trimmings.


There were 12 beautifully
home spun holiday baskets
designed by Cheryl Fetters that
decorated the tables and then
were sold at the end of the
event. Deserts were provided
by faculty, staff, and students
to top off the meal and also
were wrapped and ready to go
for a nominal price. The
desserts were one of the
favorite parts of the event.
John Piersol, chairman of
the Division of Golf,
Landscape and Forestry at
LCCC, thanked the group for
the tremendous support the
irrigation program is receiving
from the entire industry. The
most important issue discussed
was the lack of career
awareness among prospective
students. According to Piersol,
it would be very desirable for.
industry members across the
state to get involved with high
schools in their area.
He said, "Contact a local
high school, invite the
counselors and agriculture


teacher (if they have one) to
visit some impressive job sites,
feed them lunch and return
them to school."
Other suggestions to
support recognition of the
industry and the program
included talking to targeted
groups of students and
developing a part-time work
program for high school
seniors and select good
students who would work part
time and become a part of your
organization.
Then offer to pay for some
of their college expenses, and
send them to the LCCC
irrigation or landscape
programs, and have them
return, trained and
experienced.
"This would do a
tremendous amount to increase
student awareness of irrigation
careers, and it would allow
contractors to hand pick future
full-time employees," Piersol
said.

Irrigation Management or
Landscape Management

SFCC
economics
associate VP
retires
'Associate Vice President of
Economic Development Fran
Holm caps 17 years of service
at Santa Fe Community
College (SFCC) as she retires
this month. Holm has earned a
reputation for leadership in
technical programs,
development of grants,
knowledge of workforce
matters and ability to create
partnerships.
Holm began her career at
Santa Fe in 1988 as
coordinator of statewide testing
for postsecondary vocational
programs.
"My economic development
emphasis began in 1991 in my
position as director of SFCC's
collaborative grant with local
businesses and economic
development agencies to launch
the Tech Prep Education
initiative in Alachua and
Bradford counties," said Holm.
David Edwards, director of
Career and Technical Education
for the Alachua County Public
Schools, said that Holm has
been a leader in the Bradford
and Alachua County school
systems consortium.
"Alachua County Public
Schools has over 200
articulation agreements with
Santa Fe Community College
that provide unparalleled
opportunities for students to
truly take advantage of the K-
20 system that Florida has
developed," said Edwards; "Ms.
Holm was instrumental in
setting up these agreements."
Holm said her greatest
satisfaction came from working
with dedicated professionals at
Santa Fe, school districts, other
community colleges, business
partners, advisory committees
and economic development
agencies.
"My proudest achievement
has been serving students and
our community by offering

BC school
board member
shares his
holiday hobby

By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer

Behind the walls of his
house in Graham, the Bradford
County School Board
chairman has a hidden
hobby...a hidden holiday
house hobby.
James Watson and his wife,
Joan, have been collecting
Department 56's Original
Snow Village ceramic pieces
for the last 17 years.
The hobby first started on a
trip to Orlando. Watson saw a
village house on display, and
said, "I just had to have it."
After approximately 250
purchases, later,, Watson has
quite a collection of village
structures. Another 600 pieces
are accessories, such as a
police car with working lights,
Elvis' pink Cadillac, the
Budweiser Clydesdales, and
Santa's sleigh guided by eight
miniature reindeer.
When asked how much
mbney he has spent on the
display over the last 17 years,
Watson said, "I'm scared to
add it up."
Each village piece averages
about $50 to $70, though, they
can be as high as $135. As you
can see, it is a hobby that
Watson has put a lot into.
The Original Snow Village
collection started in 1976 and
will celebrate its 30th year in
2006. Through his searches at
estate sales and while on trips,
Watson has pieces dating back
to 1979.
With this mass of village
pieces, including Dick Clark's
American Bandstand, the
Ryman Auditorium, a drive-in
theater and a truck stop, the
collection now takes up two
rooms in the Watson house.
In one room, the pieces are
left up all year long with a


in high wage/high demand
careers," said Holm. "This was
made possible through creating
and nurturing
business/education partnerships
that improve the local
economy."
Holm has received many
local, state and national honors
including: SFCC's Alan J.


Robertson Medallion; Florida
Association of Community
Colleges Leroy Collins
Alumni of the Year Award; Phi
Delta Kappa (Eddcational
Honorary) Board Award for
Innovation in Community
College Education; American
Association of Community

What will Holm miss most
about Santa Fe? "The. people
with whom I have had the
privilege to work," she said.
But Holm plans to participate


in SFCC's PrimeTime Institute
(a new learning initiative for.
those age 50 and older) and
also do lots of reading.

S--D-ITORIAL


-E-TTERS TO THEEDITOR


Legislators discover their conscience


Deep, in 'their hearts, Florida
legislators have known since early -
stateho6d that accepting gifts from
lobbyists, even small gifts such as
meals, drinks and trinkets, is wrong
and leads to much larger possibilities
for the politician being
owned by -the gift
giver. The
acceptance of gifts
by legislators has,
however, become
a way of life in
Tallahassee, and
the average
Florida voter had
given up hope the
subtle bribery
would ever end,
barring a moral
renaissance
among legislators.
.That renaissance has arrived just in
time for the Christmas ,season, and
Florida voters are the recipients of an
outstanding Christmas present
courtesy of Florida lawmakers. Both
House and Senate have passed a bill
to eliminate gift-giving to legislators
by lobbyists, and Governor Jeb Bush
has announced he will sign the
measure. It will become effective Jan.
1,2006.
Senate President Tom Lee, R-
Brandon' who supported a revision of
lobbying largesse to legislators was
disappointed early in the year when
his efforts to limit gift-giving by
lobbyists was defeated, but the
rejection only made him and other
-legislators of like mind redouble their
efforts in eliminating the custom..
With the governor's signature,
Florida will have the most stringent,
statute in the nation prohibiting gift-
giving by lobbyists, and only one of,

two states having similar laws.
Rep. Marco Rubio, R-West Miami,
observed, "Perception in politics is as
important as reality." This astute
observation should be framed and
hung on the walls of every public
office in the state. Rubio's
statement parallels a
comment by Julius
Caesar some
2,000 years ago:
"Even Caesar's
wife must live
above suspicion."
Caesar made the
comment while
divorcing his
second wife,
Pompeia, who was
reportedly having an
affair with Publius-
Cludius, even though
Caesar did not believe the rumors
concerning his wife. There is a lesson
here for all holders of the public trust.
Will a legislator "sell his soul" for
the price of a meal? I should hope not'
but it will place his name on a list of
those who will accept small favors,
sure sign his.conscience isn't clutteredI
with small things. Small gifts, everi
meals, are favors, and favors -are
expected to be returned at some time
in the future, and lobbyists have long
memories. o.
Thanksgiving Day 2005 is gone,but
that'doesn't mean we can't recognit.
and be thankful for "small favors." lfi
fact, the Christmas season may be an
excellent time to give thanks for
legislators who have chosen the high
ground on a moral question. It's the
first step in a long journey to restore
faith in government.
By Buster Rahn, Editorial Writer


The true
spirit of
giving
Dear Editor:
I saw yet another special on
television last night that
depicted the plight of homeless
people across America.
Again, the feeling of
helplessness was over-
whelming. There are billions of
dollars every year earmarked for
charitable contributions,
however, very little ever makes
it to the place it. is really
needed homeless people in
our very own cities.
Less than 8 percent of all
American charitable
contributions are given to
homeless .shelters and soup
kitchens. While the rich and
famous are gathering in concert
halls to give to their favorite
charities, with which they are
already deeply involved, it
seems that Americans will step
over the truly needy to give
thousands, sometimes hundreds
of thousands of dollars to
huge, seemingly uncontrolled
charities.
Some of these charities
spend so much money on their
Sown costs of maintaining
i themselves 'that very' little
I actually gets to the Toot of
their charity..
In addition, my research
shows that over 50 percent of
the homeless in America are
U.S. Veterans and disabled
SAmerican veterans. It is
outrageous that we don't start
in our own neighborhoods by
feeding and housing people
who are truly helpless.
i Sometimes .they are in that
situation because of
circumstances that are out of
their control.
Why then, as supposedly
civilized people, do we ignore
them, avoid eye contact for fear
of giving,' and change to the


other side of the street to avoid
them? One very explanative
word comes to mind ...
selfishness.
I've spent a lot of my life as
an over the road truck driver.
One Christmas day, I was-
"stranded" in northern Georgia
waiting to unload after the
holiday. I heard a.man's voice
come over the CB radio in my
truck which said, "If any of
you drivers in the truck stop
are stuck for the holidays, my
wife and kids and I would like
to invite you to Christmas
dinner at our house."
Normally, I would never get
in a van with a stranger like
that, but there were six of us
drivers who wanted to go, and
something in the man's
message and voice told me to
trust him. I think it was God
telling me it was OK to go,
Within five minutes we were
at his house-and were met by
his family and some of his
neighbors who had pitched in
to help. We had a fine dinner,
with all the trimmings. Even
though we were from several
different races, we all soon
realized that there truly is only
one race of people on this
. earth, the human race.
I will ne~er forget that
Christmas dinner or the true
.love of the people who shared
their home and family with me
so many years ago.
Please share this spirit with
someone who needs you this
Christmas.
I belong to an association
called the All American
Trucking Association (AATA)
and I would 'like 'toihivite
anyone who wants to e.lp the
homeless right here in North
Florida this Christmas Season
to give to the AATA Charities
Foundation. This would be one.
good way of sharing with
those who most need us this
Christmas and in the days
ahead. You can reach the


AATA Charities Foundation
on the web at
http://www.loadmytruck.com/aat
acharities.asp
or email them at
memberservices@loadmytruck.c
om for questions.
If you have a church group
or another local charity that can
help feed people in our area
this Christmas, please donate
time, supplies, money, or just
love to them.i
Two suggestions are Lake
Area Ministries in Keystone
Heights, (352) 473-2846, and
the Bradford Ecumenical
Ministry Food Pantry in
Starke, (904) 964-3984.
We have hundreds of people
right here in Bradford and Clay
counties who need help. If even
half of us gave $1 a month that
we knew would feed or house
needy people in our area, the
need would be eradicated.
Please .give this holiday
season to someone who will
never forget his or her
"Favorite Chriistmas
Experience."

The Angel Tree


The history of gift-giving at
Christmas dates back to the Magi
bringing gifts to the Christ child when
he was 13 days old, right?
Not so according to the
history of Christmas.
The Christmas "
season as we ,
know it is an AA
American 'erca
. invention dating
back to the late "'
19th century and ,
becomes more
commercial each year
as retailers use the
season to move
merchandise.
But even in its
commercial form,
our custom of
celebrating
Christmas -in a
material way doesn't I
negate the gratification
of giving gifts to those %we
love, or, in some cases, to
those we don't love but perhaps owe
for some reason. In its purest form,
perhaps we give because we
appreciate the good things that have
come our way during the year and
wish to acknowledge them by giving
to others, to children and/or the less
fortunate.
Sometimes our gift-giving isn't
prompted by love but out of a self-,
perceived obligation, such as giving
to a business associate or
remembering someone that gave us a,
gift in a prior year. We can discount
our motives in those cases as being
self-serving. Employers giving to
employees -is different. The employer
recognizes each worker as a
contributing factor in a successful
business year.
Some Starke churches have- an
innovative way of ensuring gifts to


children who may otherwise have a
cheerless holiday. Families and
friends submit the names of children
in need, along
A+ with personal
v -' information such
as sex, age,
\ants, etc, and distribute
the listing to a participating
church. The information is
transferred to a paper angel,
with the name replaced by a
number to provide
anonymity, and the angel is
hung on a tree, hence the
name Angel Tree.
Church members pick
S an angel from the tree,
and buy gifts for the child
and bring them to the
4 church for distribution

SChurch members
responded generously,
bringing a feeling of
satisfaction to the giver and
cheer for the recipient, who
otherwise might not have received a
Christmas gift. The front' of the
sanctuary in one Starke church was
filled last Sunday, and that was
replicated throughout the city,
providing niore gifts this Christmas
than were received throughout the
county not so many years ago.
Americans are the most generous
people on earth, with Christmas
giving coming on top of record giving
in the past few months following
worldwide disasters. But then, our
economy allows us the ability to share

ribs available that day to sell,
but most of the ribs will be,
there for ticket-holders to pick
up.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you

from all of us at Jackson's!

At.this time of year our attention.is focused on Christmas. On behalf of the stockholders, officers,
directors and employees of Jackson Building Supply, I would like to thank you all for your support.
,We realize that without you and more importantly, without the Grace and Mercy of Almighty God, we
could not exist as a business or even as individuals. Because you have been so good to us and likewise
God has been, we feel that we need to share with you what we believe Christmas is all about.
Christmas is surely a time of giving, as is evidenced by the giving or exchanging of many gifts.
When we think about Christmas giving we need to remember, "For God so loved the world, that he
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have everlasting
life," (John 3:16). God gave that we might believe on His Son and have a place In Heaven. Jesus paid
our sin debt and rose again to show that His payment was enough. However, if we reject what He
'gave, we have a place in Hell.
Christmas needs to be a time for receiving, for no one can give a gift unless it is received. The Bible
says that the Gift of God, His Son, Jesus, "came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as
many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God. Even to them that believe
on his name; Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of
God." (John 1:11-13)
Christmas is a time of happiness, as evidenced on the face of many. Happiness depends on happenings,
and can be short lived to gain real Joy and Peace this Christmas, why not right now receive the
greatest gift ever given, The Lord Jesus Christ? Jesus loves us and invites us to bel ieve in Him. If you
have not nade this commitment, you should right now receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. If
you have just now received Him...you can know the real Joy of Christmas for the first time. For those
of us who already know Him may we be drawn to a closer walk this Christmas.
We thank God for the opportunity He has given us to serve your building supply and hardware needs
--we also thank Him for allowing us to share Jesus Christ with you. After all, without Christ there
would be no Christmas.

A Starke woman donates a live-saving gift to her sister


By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer

A--Starke woman has known
for a year and a half just what
would be the perfect Christmas-
.gift for her sister.
Danielle Warren %as able to
.give that early present Lto her
sister in August.
Her gift.was a newv kidne)
Linda Stolfo. Warren's
sister, kidneys had been
deteriorating over time. The
doctors couldn't determine the
exact cause, but think it may
have been from an
undiagnosed kidney infection
as a child.


records had to be sent back and
forth to Miami, where her
sister lives.
Warren went on to have the
surgery in Miami on Aug. 3,
and the operation lasted three


to four hours. She was in the
hospital four days.
Warren's coworkers and
supervisors at New River
Correctional Institution and
her husband's coworkers were


very supportive of her choice
for organ donation. They let
her have days off whenever
she needed ,them, she said, and
even let Barry off when he
'needed to go tothe doctor with,

The kidney surgery was life
changing for both Stolfo and
Warren.
Warren is left with a 3-inch
scar around her belly button

about her decision to give her
Sister a kidney.
"They were very thorough
on everything they check," she
said.
If any small irregularity
showed up on a test, Warren
had to see her doctor and have
even-more tests.
Warren said she had no
doubt about donating her
kidney, but her family kept her
sister's condition a secret from
her in the beginning because
she had -the- youngest- child to
raise. If something went
wrong, it would leave her 4-
year-old daughter, Sarah,
without-a mother.
; Warren's husband Barry, a
lieutenant at the Starke Police
Department, said he was not
concerned about his wife
donating an organ either. His
father received a heart
transplant six years ago, and
his uncle received a kidney
too.
"If they could get helped by
others, I'm glad my wife was
able to help someone." he said.
The time between evaluating
Warren's kidney and the actual
surgery took approximately a
year and a half. This was
because Warren's medical

Warren's hospital bills

National Guard helps Mississippi in Katrina recovery


Members of the
202n RED HORSE
and the Florida
Guard's 269th
Engineer Company
assist in the effort

By STAFF SGT. THOMAS

The turtle crawled slowly
across North Beach Boulevard,
each methodical step over the
warm pavement bringing it
closer to St. Louis Bay on the
other side of the street.
Behind it was only
wreckage-the shattered
remains of bay-front homes
torn apart by Hurricane
Katrina months ago -and the
way forward was across two
lanes of semi-deserted road.
Occasionally a pickup truck or
car would speed by the turtle
during its mid-morning march
to the water; each time the


turtle would freeze, duck its
head inside its shell and wait
until the road was quiet again,
Eventually, a motorist
stopped, picked up the small
animal and carried it the few
last feet before dropping it
unceremoniously into the bay.
As the motorist pulled away
-a few ragged fragments of
Cajun music drifting from the
driver's open window -the
turtle floated and paddled
away from the shore.
Like the turtle's painfully
slow-, march across North
Beach Boulevard, the people
living in the ruins of this Gulf
Coast community are slowly
recovering from the ravages of.
the 2005 hurricane season.
When the Category 3
Hurricane Katrina made
landfall near the
Mississippi/Louisiana border
on Aug. 29, its powerful winds
and storm surge
damaged-and in some cases
completely decimated-the
homes, schools and businesses
in Bay St. Louis and
neighboring Waveland. After,

1 Saturday. December 17th, 2005 we lost our
father y Waane Alldredge. He was a good man. He
ould do anything to help anyone. He went out of his
way to helpe many people in this town for most of his life
He raised hisfamily here and was a business owner that
took meticulous pride in his work He was the best
around in his prime and went above and beyond in his
job. at no extra charge. He sure did love his wife and us
kids. He told us so every time we saw him. He had been
through some rough times in the past couple of years
with his health, but over the past few months lie was
doing better and getting stronger He was even going to
build himself race car. so he started to collect parts. He
bought a nice set of racing heads from a local race car
owner Boy lie sure was proud of them. He showed them
to us last weekend: He was going to put them on his race
motor. Our father loved racing He built and drove his
own race car over at the old dJrt track in Lake City back
in his younger days. We were just kids at the.time butwe
really lovedgoing and watching him race, even though
he never won. I took him to that old track a few weeks
ago and we watched Adam Wilson, Joe's son, win his
race and we saw a great late model race. We had a great
time at that race,just me and him.
Sunday mowrnng asmT and'n.rbtnthers wereW
wandering around his shop trying to figure out what all.
needed to be done to prepare for his funeral, we realized
that his shop wasn't the way he left it. Someone had
broken in there and taken his heads. I just want to let
the person that stole those heads know that those are
special heads. Those are the heads that were to top off
our father's last race motor, his dream motor, which now
will never be built. You see. those were part of our
father's dream just like the block and the pistons, the
rear end he has on order, each a part of that dream. So to
the person that stole them please keep this in mind.
whether you took them to put on your own dream motor
or to sell so you could get another fix, they were once
part four father's dream. So now we get to not only deal
with the loss four father, but also the disrespect shown
to himnj a thief \e are not going to try to hunt you
doun because we do not need the heads. We are not
building our dream motors yet. but someday we will,
and we will remember our father's dream motor that
never got built.
To all the people that befriended our father through the
/ ood times and bad, we thank you from the bottom of our
hearts. All he wanted was to be liked and have friends.
From talking to many of you these past couple of days,
lie made his rounds to see you. Thank you for taking
time out of your busy days to share a few minutes with.
him. It meant the world to him. His last couple of I
months here were happy ones. For the first time in years, ,
lhe was pain free and he was able to enjoy life again.
Thank you for the memories.

assistance from local, state and
federal agencies, the residents
are slowly putting their
community back together.
A few blocks away from the
turtle crossing, two Bay St.
Louis residents were trying to
expedite the rebuilding
process: plumber Ken Monti
was sifting through bricks and
debris of a bay-front home,
attempting to locate water and
sewer lines so that homeowner
Daniel Laitinen could place a
trailer on the lot where his
house once stood.
The 1,700 square-foot house
with the nice view of Bay St.
Louis was now little more than
a foundation surrounded by
reminders of a pre-Katrina life:
a broken cordless phone, dirty
floor tiles, dumbbells, a
camera lens and pieces of a
clock.
Monti, a lifelong resident of
the area who installed the
original plumbing in 'the house
in the late 1960s, admitted he,
was having trouble
recognizing the property. Like*
most homes along' the bay
front, this one had been
reduced to a cement slab,
"Boy; I've lived here all my
life and I'm *still confused
about where these people
live," Monti said, looking at:
the mess.
Laitinen chatted with Monti
about the force of Hurricane
Katrina and how the wind and
water washed away most of his
possessions, including ladders,
fishing gear and a tool shed.
One of Laitien's prized
possessions was found .more
than a mile away from his
home after the hurricane, he
said.
"I was going down Dunbar
(Avenue) and there was a
minnow bucket 15 feet up in a
tree,'" Laitinen said in a thick
Gulf Coast accent. "I told my
wife, 'That looks like my
minnow bucket.' 'They got a
million yellow minnow
buckets in Bay St. Louis,'. she
said. 'Yeah,. but I'd recognize
the rope I tied on it t6 hold the
door shut.'
"I climbed up that tree 15
feet, and it was mine,"
Laitenen said with a smile.
Neither Laitenen nor Monti
sAid they would even cofingider

starting over somewhere else.
However, Monti said he felt.
the easygoing, small town
atmosphere of Bay St. Louis
would never be the same again
if many of the other residents.
chose to leave and not rebuild.
"This is going to be slow
healing," Monti said with a
sigh. "The buildings may be
back in five or six years, but I
don't think the attitude will
ever be the same."
Across town that same
morning, the next generation
of Bay St. Louis .was starting
back .to school: more than

School board
redirects
technology
funds

By LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Bradford County School
Board approved a resolution,
at its Dec. 12 meeting,
allowing flexibility in the use
of technology funds.
Superintendent Harry
Hatcher recommended the
approval of this action to the
board.
The school board found that
funding given by the Florida
,legislature is not adequate to
keep up with the standards the


'board has set for classroom
instuciuon.
According to the resolution,
the school board will take
, $60,000 specified for public
school technology programs
and reassign it to be a reserve
for board-specified classroom
instruction.
Classroom instruction is in
urgent need of the money,
according to. the school's
district technology plan for
2005-2008.
Florida law allows the
school district the flexibility to
redirect funds in its operating
when the need arises,
A similar resolution has
been approved for the past
three years allowing, funds
designated specifically for
norn-classroom instruction
programs. to be used for
classroom instruction.

students returned to classes in
more than 60 portable
classroom units placed on
school property.
Superintendent of Schools
'Dr. Kim Stasny explained the
hurricane recovery in her
school district was' a slow
process, but without the
assistance of outside agencies
they would be far from ready
to let students back into
classes.
The Mississippi Emergency
Management Agency noted
that Hurricane Katrina caused
damage to 303 schools in the
Gulf Coast region of the state.
During a ceremonial ribbon
cutting for the reopening of
North Bay Elementary, Stasny
singled out members of the
Florida Air National Guard's
202nd RED HORSE unit for its
work with repairing the
schools.
'..It was. a tremendous effort
on their part, and I really W e'ln
this, because we wouldn't have
had this site here toda) if it
wasn't for them clearing this
site," Stasny said.
Members of the 202" RED
HORSE and the Florida Army
National Guard's. 269 h.
Engineer Company helped
establish a 500-person base
camp for relief efforts in Bay
St. Louis, prepared sites for the
portable school buildings,
operated lift stations for sewers
throughout the city, maintained
air conditioning systems and
helped remove hurricane
debris.
According to the(
Department of Homeland.
Security, more than 20,000
National Guard Soldiers and
Airmen were deployed, to
assist with Hurricane Katrina
relief operations in the Gulf
_ Coast region.
Senior Master Sgt. Jeff
Lindsey), one of the three
remaining RED HORSE
Airmen on duty in Mississippi
on Nov. 7, explained that he
has seen a gradual change in


the area since he sas deployed'
Sto Bay St. Louis on Sept. 3.
"You see people smiling
; now and some businesses are
starting to open back up,"
Lindsey said. "In the past two
months you've seen more
people coming back. This was
great this morning to see the
kids coming back. We haven't
seen too many. kids around
here."
The 17-year veteran of the
Florida National Guard agreed
with some area residents that
the recovery process would be
slow.
"'There's going to be damage
, here for years to come. but it's
starting to get back to normal,"
Lindsey said.
Lindse. said the RED
HORSE will maintain a twlb-
person team in Mississippi
until mid-December in order to
assist with ongoing Hurricane
SKatrina recovery missions.'

Watson Center addition wi

open doors in January


By CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


It has been quite an
inaugural year for the Santa Fe
'Community College Watson
Center in Keystone Heights.
Enrollment has doubled
_,since the center opened in
January and this coming
January will see the opening of
.ia 7,146 square-foot addition
That will provide more
c classrooms, a computer lab
and, eventually, an organic
chemistry lab.
1. "It'.s fantastic," Bob
SWolfson, director ,of the
Watson Center, said of the
$1.2 million project. "This
(center) has just grown so
quickly. We've only been here
a year."
Wolfson said additional
space was needed for students
taking evening courses and the
new building will provide that
inmthe form of six classrooms.
The building will also
include a computer lab that
students should be able. to
access at any time when the
center is open. The center
already has one computer lab,
bu students' use of it is
limited since computer classes
are aught there.
",Ve'll fe able to have that


(new) lab open most of the
time," Wolfson said.
The chemistry lab-which
will not be ready for the start
of the spring semester, but will
be open later in the year-will
allow the center to offer
classes in fields such as
biology, chemistry and
anatomy and physiology that
students currently have to
drive to Gainesville to take.
"Right now we're not able to
offer any of those science
classes that have a lab attached
to them," Wolfson said.
The chemistry lab's opening
will provide Wolfson with one
more exciting moment since
the Watson Center opened.
Since that time, Wolfson has
witnessed enrollment increase
from just over 100 students to
197-filling 367 seats-this
past fall semester. The center
already has 367 seats filled for
the upcoming spring semester.
Approximately .30 different
courses will be offered in the
spring. Students will continue
to register'until the semester
begins Monday, Jan. 9.
Wolfson said the Watson
Center has received an "open-
armed welcome" from the
community and he encourages
anyone in the community who
can teach to do so.
"The chairs of all the
