History of LBVFR revealed


EMS director has asked

for other changes


Top: Current Chief Mike
Banks and former chiefs
Wilson Rivers, Edward
Dukes and Ken Turner
hold ons the first nozzles
ever used by the
department.

Right: Banks shows off
the breathing equipment
from when the apparatus
was first invented as well
as the equipment that is
used in the fire service
today.


Recently six decades of fire chiefs got together to recount the history of the Lake
Butler Volunteer Fire Department (now known as Lake Butler Volunteer Fire Rescue).
In 1946, Kenheth Turner became the first chief of the department. During his visit
with the Union County Historical Society, he recounted some the tough beginnings
of the department. "We had a fire cart with a hose that leaked," Turner said. "I had to
convince the city to but us new hose so we could put a fire." He also told of the time
he lived in the building that currently housed the Marjorie Driggers Museum. "it was
boarding house when I lived here," Turner said. Current chief Mike Banks showed
the crowd not only the new modern equipment used, but the obsolete gear no one
would even think about using today. It was revealed that in the history of the
department there had only been six chiefs. "To have four of them in the same room
is remarkable," said Bill McGill, a member of the historical society.

Times Staff Writer
A change in his schedule is
not the only thing Union
County Emergency Medical
Services Director Allen Parrish
has asked county
commissioners to consider
recently.
In a letter to Commissioner
Karen Cossey, chairperson for
the Emergency Medical
Services Committee for the
county, Parrish spells out three
ideas he feels the county needs
to implement to help with his
department.
"The recent approval of
subdivision plats in the south
and west regions 'of Union
County alone have created 100
or more new residences,"
Parrish said. "These Will.
impact our emergency medical
response and all other public
services."
Parrish's first proposal, in-
the letter dated No%. 9, is to


levy an impact fee or surcharge
for developments and
subdivisions that will impact
the infrastructure and public
services of the county.
"I am requesting the board
of county commissioners
consider the implementation of
some type of fee or surcharge
for new developments that will
impact services of this
county," Parrish said. "This
could be called a fee, charge,
permit fee or whatever the
board deems necessary. It is
my recommendation that the
board consider this fee (be
,assessed based on) either a
percentage of the assessed
value -of. the land to be
developed, taxable value of the
land, a percentage of new
home construction or a flat fee
per development.
"The county would need to
collect this fee prior to

UC Emergency Services makes transition to plain text


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Wruer
If you've been listening to
:the police scanner lately \ou
S might a hase noticed a change
in the wa\ medical and fire
personnel are communicating.
In February, Union County
.Emergency Medical Services
.and all Union County fire
.departments switched to using
.what is known as plain text
communication. Now rather
Than using numbers and signals
-to relay messages, personnel
s .simply tell each other, and
dispatchers, what they are
S a)i ng.
For example, previously
-responders would say they.
were 10-51 to a call. This
means they were on their "a\
or en route to the.location of
the person needing assistance.
Now they simplN sa) theN are
en route to the location.
So why :are emergency)
responders taking all the
secrecy out of what they are
* doing? It all leads back to the
event of 9-1 1.
In an after action report
conducted by the National'
Commission ,on Terrorist


Attacks (9-11 Commission), it
was found that personnel had
trouble; communicating
because of the s,.nals the
%were using. What one signal
meant to fire personnel, meant
something total) different to
police officers. According to
the report, the confusion
communicating just, made a
bad situation worse.
In the %wake of the findings,
the Department of Homeland
Security implemented the
National Incident Management i/
System. The system pro ides
a universal wax in which all
emergency personnel approach
a large scale disaster. These
regulations require all '
emergency) personnel to use
plain text for all radio
communications.
"This helps everyone at an
incident be on the same page,"
said Union County Office of
Emergency Management
Director Doug York. "B)
implementing this system there
is no confusion and everyone
understands what is going on."
NIMS is being put into place Emergency Medical Technician Wayne Clemons talks to dispatch before responding
to a cal for assistance. Union County Emergency responders have begun using a

authorizing the plans as
specified in the land
development regulations of
Union County."
According to Parrish, by
implementing this type of fee,
the county could recoup at
least some ,of the costs the
developments have on county.
services.
"I sincerely believe that this,
of some type of revenue
generating fee, is absolutely
necessary to operate any and
all public services in the
future," Parrish said.
Parrish's second proposal
asks the county to authorize a
service contract with Lake
Butler Hospital. According to
Parrish, Union County is the
only county in North East
Florida that currently does not
have a service contract with its
hospital. He said his,
department is losing money
because the contract is not in
place.
"I am requesting that the
board consider the
authorization of service
contract for interfacility
transfers from Lake Butler
Hospital," Parrish said. "The
service agreement would,
guarantee payment for services
rendered."
An interfacility transfer is
can a patient is transferred
from one hospital to another
.-beca'use the first hospital is
unable to provide- the care the
patient needs. According to
Parrish, Union County EMS
provided 82 transfers from the
hospital to -other facilities
during the 2004-05 fiscal year.
"The amount billed for these
services was more than
$47,000," Parrish said. "The
amount collected was $21,000.
The remainder of this amount
should have been .paid by the
hospital, as they are the agency
that requested our services."
Parrish said the contract
could even be set up to charge
the hospital a flat rate for
transfers.
"The bottom line of this
proposal is that EMS be
authorized to enter into a
contract with Lake Butler
Hospital that guarantees
payment for services," Parrish
Said. "EMS lost more than
$20,000 in revenue by not,
ha% ing a contract."

EMS personnel to respond
quicker to calls in the
Providence and Worthington
Springs area.
"I am recommending that
county commissioners
consider the addition'*of a
substation in the Southwest
region of the county," Parrish
said. "The most logical
location for this outlying*
station would be somewhere
around the Harmony Church
area. This would provide for
response to Providence and
Worthington Springs along
with The Groves and Midway
area."
According to Parrish, the
facility could be used for a
variety of purposes.
"This facility could be used
to house one of our existing
EMS units, a volunteer fire
unit and provide for a law
enforcement office," Parrish
said.
He also pointed out that
response times would be
reduced.
"This facility would allow for
the response time of our EMS
units to be reduced by 6-8
minutes," Parrish said. "This
would be half the, time it
currently takes. A reduction in
response times would allow for
the citizens of the south and
west regions of the county to
have the same quality of EMS
response as those within the
Central region."
According to Parrish,
residents of the south,and west
regions currently...wait 6-8
minutes longer for an EMS
response because both units
are located in the city of Lake
Butler.
Parrish said he feels that the
cost for the facility would be.
very minimal.
"The, EMS department
already has the personnel,
equipment and supplies to
completely start this outlying
station," Parrish said. "All that
is needed is the physical
building to house the personnel
and equipment. It is my
understanding the county has
already procured the land for
the placement of this facility."
According to Parrish, the
facility would not need to be
elaborate and 'would require
minimal space.
"Two bedrooms, a kitchen, a
bathroom with shower, supply
room, two offices and some
type of awning or cover for the
equipment are all that are
required," Parrish said. "A
metal building:' iih cos ered
bays is what I am looking for."


LEGALS


According to figures
provided by Parrish, It would
cost the county less than
$45,000 to put the facility in
place. Estimated costs for well,
septic and site preparation are
$12,000. The estimated cost of
the building would be $30,000.
One expense that would be
ongoing would be an electric
bill. Parrish estimated this to
be no more than $300 a month
or $3,600 per year.
Parrish's last request could
become reality sooner rather
than later. It would just not be
in the location he has
proposed.
During the county
commission's Feb. 20 meeting,
the town of Worthington
Springs proposed turning all its
fire equipment over to the
county; In exchange, the town
would -ask the county to station
a rescue unit in the station,
According to Worthington
Springs Mayor Jimmy Cason,
the town would refurbish a bay
of the current station to house
the EMS unit. Cason told
commissioners the town would
provide everything necessary
to make the transition.
With the town footing the
bill for the renovation, the
county would save at least
$42,000 and still have EMS
units in two places in the*
county. It was unclear if the
county or the town would .be
responsible for the utility bill.
During the meeting, Parrish
told commissioners he was in
favor of taking over the
station.
"It is my professional
opinion that the majority of the
increase in development and
new home construction- is
occurring in the southern and-
western regions of Union
County," Parrish said.
"Although the overall impact'
of this growth will not be
known for years to follow, the
Department of Emergency
Medical Services has already
begun to experience the impact
in response times and the
number of responses to this
area of the county. The above-
mentioned recommendations
and requests are all issues that
I think will immediately help
EMS with revenue, and allow-
for all of Union County
residents to receive quality
EMS services.

March 9, 2006 UNION COUNTY TIMES Page 3A



Lake Butler was once the county seat of New River County


(This portion of the history
was researched and compiled
by Gail D. Livingston for the
110th anniversary edition of
the Telegraph.) The city of
Starke is the county seat of
Bradford County and is now
the most thriving town in
either Bradford or Union
counties, but Lake Butler once
more than rivaled that status.
When the two counties were
still one, Lake Butler (15 miles
west of Starke in what is now
Union County) was the county
seat. The area was settled early
.on, but it was in 1859 that 40
acres of land was purchased
.from the government and
streets were laid out for Lake
Butler, the county seat of what
was then New River County.
When Baker County was
divided from New River in
1859, the remaining portion of
that county was renamed
'Bradford and Lake Butler
remained the county seat. The
town was named by an early
surveyor and the reasons for
the choice of "Lake Butler" are
not clear. Late in the 20th
BCentury stories circulated that
the town was named for a
"Captain" Butler who died
during the Semiriole Indian
Wars and was buried on the
north shore of the lake. It was
later proven that the heroic
soldier who gave his life
protecting the white citizens of
the area did not actually exist,
although the battle he was
supposed to have died in did
actually occtr and soldiers did
lose their lives during it.
When Lake Butler was
established, some of the names
of the early residents found
in various records were
similar to names which are
found among families there
today. William J.D. Prevatt,
Capt. H.F. York, Capt. Roll
Thomas, Col. L.B. Rhodes,
John Croft and M.L.
McKinney were men listed as
being from Lake Butler when
they were/ inducted into
Company A of the 7th Florida
Infantry. in 1862. The joined


Bragg's Army in Tennessee
shortly after induction. Other
records list early residents of
Lake Butler and include Dr.
O.V. Walton, Dr. Sol
Newsome, Thomas Irving
Dekle, Grancer Palmer, W.S.
Epperson and Major Joseph L.
Hill. Capt. York served as the
first clerk of the court and was
also a partner in a general
merchandise store, called York
and Rhodes. The'Rev. R.H.
Barnett, an early circuit riding
preacher for the Methodist
Church, once worked for York
and Rhodes. In early days it
was customary for Methodist
ministers to serve several
churches and ride out to a
different one each Sunday.
Since Barnett traveled a lot, he
once made the back room at
the merchandise store his
sleeping quarters and took his
meals in the home of Col. L.B.
,Rhodes. The store was not
much different from the typical
country store of the day. It had
a cracker barrel, pickle barrel
and even a barrel of liquor
which was kept in a side room.
Portions were sold to
customers who brought their
own mugs into the store. The
presence of the liquor barrel
prompted Barnett to leave
employment with the store,
although he reported in his
biography that he liked both
the owners and enjoyed his
job. He did a lot of praying for
the two men and seemed to
feel justified in the effort as
Rhodes later became a
Methodist minister himself and
York became a deacon in the
Baptist church.
Toward the end of the Civil
War, Lake Butler's business
district began to grow. John
Croft opened a grocery store.
M.L. McKinney returned from
war and married Matilda
Dekle. The couple established
a cotton gin in the western
portion of the town. The first
post office was located inside a
general store owned by J.H.
Porter, who acted as the first
postmaster. O.W. Maines,
grandfather of the famed Lake
Butler historian and late
"country" attorney Hal Y.


Maines, assisted Porter as
postmaster. The present
Masonic Hall, located on'Main
Street adjacent to the First
United Methodist Church, was
one of the earliest public
schools in the town. F.G.
Shelle served as editor of the
town's first newspaper, the
now defunct Lake Butler Star.
Joseph P. Richard (also
pronounced Ri-shard) had his
Wayne County, Georgia
plantation destroyed in the
Civil War and he relocated his
family to the Providence area.
Around 1875 he purchased a
large section of land near Lake
Butler, which included -the
Johnstown area, an
unincorporated settlement
between Lake Butler and
Raiford. He also purchased
other tracts in various areas
and operated a grits mill,
cotton gin and sawmill in
addition to his farm. He served
as county judge for 14 years.
F.M. Rivers founded the
Rivers Hardware Store in Lake
Butler during this early period
-- about 1880- and
continued in operation until it
burned in 1985. Rivers
attained 'fame' by
manufacturing his own
invention, the Rivers "double
stock" plow, which was
popularly used all over Florida
and the South. The business
passed on to C.F. Rivers and
then to Wilson Rivers, who
still lives in Union County
today. W.C. Townsend came
to Lake Butler from Georgia as
a school teacher. Townsend
married Susie Dekle and
Townsend's brother J.W.
Townsend, later married
Susie's sister, Lola. The
Townsend brothers had a
successful partnership in
farming and the turpentine
business. They bought large
quantities of land and built a
successful clothing store in
town. They built numerous
commercial buildings in town,
including the 1911 building
which once" housed the
Farmers and Dealers Bank. It
has since been renovated and
is now the Driggers medical-
office building on Main Street.

The construction of most of
the early brick buildings in
town can be laid at the door of
the Townsend brothers,
including the building which is
currently being renovated to
serve Lake Butler as a museum
and meeting hall. Most of
these buildings where two-
story brick buildings with the
top floor used as hotel rooms
and the bottom used for
business operation.
Around 1880 Tom P.
Register, a Civil War veteran,
arrived in Lake Butler.
Register was a carpenter and
was father of Charles H.
Register, who served as Union
County's representative in the
Florida Legislature when that
county was born in 1921.
Other early settlers of the town
included F.P and E.L. Odom
who established a
mercantile store on the corner
of Main Street and Lake
Avenue D.F. McDonald,
Nathan Varnes and Mrs. Eyder
Knight. Other early family
names included Proctor,
Anthony, Johnson, Brannen,
Thomas, Dukes, Addison,
Johns, Andrews, Richards,
Harper, Colson, Chapman,
Hendricks, Dowling, Jones,.
Mizelle, Biellings, Roberts,
Croft and Hall.
About 1882 O.W. Maines
moved from Georgia to Ft.
White and then to Lake Butler.
Maines operated a store on
Main Street, near the present-
day courthouse, which was
referred to as Truby-Sternberg
and Company.. it was a long
wooden building which had a
warehouse for ginned cotton in
the rear. John A. King left
Missouri and was on his way
to the rich land in Providence
around Christmas of 1884
when he stopped for a rest in
Lake Butler.. He and his
family, including an ill
daughter for whom King
hoped the climate and local
doctors would be beneficial,
had arrived in Starke by trainr
and rented a surrey and, a
wagon and team of horses with
which to finish the move. The
family arrived in Lake Butler
and met a group of citizens


who were more accomplished
than a chamber.of commerce.
Citizens gathered round the
family out of curiosity and
then talked King into changing
his plans and living in Lake
Butler. John Dekle had a
medicine shop in town and Dr.
Walton lived nearby, so King's
concerns for his daughter's
health were answered. King
and Dekle later opened a drug
store together, located where
the Maines Real Estate office
is today. In 1894 King built the
building that later housed both
the Tomlinson-Maines Drug
Store and the post office.
In 1889, the railroad also
boosted growth in Lake Butler.
The Georgia Southern and
Florida rail line reached town
at that time and the Atlantic
Coast Line rail line came
through town in 1900-01. A
large depot was built at the
intersection of the two rail
lines in 1913. A beautiful park
was adjacent to the depot. The
park, with its white picket
fence and numerous benches,
was a project of the Lake
Butler Woman's Club. People
came to town to sit on the
benches, visit with friends and
meet "40," the afternoon train
from Jacksonville. L.A.
Duncan came to town in the
1890s and established a large
general store which sold
furniture, shoes, dry goods,
groceries, hardware and almost
anything else. He also owned a
stables which was operated by
Dick Hewitt. Mrs. Onie Pons
operated a millinery shop next
door. The "Duncan's House"
was actually a large hotel on
Main Street, located where
Eckerd Drugs is now. Two
large, circular porches on the
front of the two-story house
made it an attractive lodging
for travelers who came in on
the trains. Traveling salesmen
and drummers often stayed'
there. The hotel was well-
known for its large "lazy-
susan" table which was always
generously laid with food
cooked by Mrs. Duncan and'
Kibby Lamar. The hotel, even
had, shuttle service from the
depot. A beautiful. black horse


named Prince pulled a carriage
driven by George Marklee who
met all the trains and drove
people to and from the hotel.
In the early 1990s an addition
was built onto the hotel and
called the "annex." This
housed the post office with
Oscar Brown as postmaster. It
also housed a barber shop
operated by Elzey Loadholtz
and the local pool room. The
second story of the annex
housed additional hotel rooms.
The hotel burned down in
1914. The Duncans also
owned a cotton gin, located
where Howard Auto Parts is
today. The gin did a
prosperous business and
records indicate that at one
sale alone, enough ginned
cotton changed hands to bring
$1 million to the farmers of the
area an astronomical
amount in'the early 1900s. The
town continued to prosper
through the 1920s, but as the
automobile began to replace
the train as America's chosen
means of travel, business
dwindled. SR-100 and SR-121
are traveled, but hot nearly so
heavily as US-301, so Starke
easily outstripped Lake Butler
in growth rate. However, Lake
Butler has 'recently seen
another growth spurt. People
have begun to move out of the
more populous areas like
Gainesville and Lake City and
opt for country living- in,
nearby Union County.


The Dog Museum in St.
Louis, Missouri, founded
by The Kennel.Club,
features paintings,
sculptures, and other
works of art with dogs
in them.

and learning new ideas," she
said. "This time spent is
invaluable to me because it
provides me with a plethora of
not only ideas, but specific
information on how to make it
work in my classroom."
Whitehead said she feels
teamteaching has been a great
help to her.
"Teamteaching has been one
of the greatest tools for
teaching and learning that I
have experienced," she said.
"By'collaborating, we are able
to enrich our students'
education and create a more
successful learning
environment."
Whitehead's in-the-class
philosophy is to use different
techniques to get the most out
of her students.
"I set high goals and
expectations for all students in'
my class," Whitehead said. "I
use different instructional
strategies that focus on all
learning styles. I spend time
giving a whole group direct
instruction, facilitating reading
centers, small group and one-
on-one instruction."
Whitehead said she has but
one goal with all her strategies.
"My goal is that all students
will develop a strong desire to
learn and become lifelong-
learners," she said.,
Data plays an important part
in her instruction and is one of
the major factors driving it.
S"Each year I review test
scores- from each of my
students in reading and math,"
Whitehead said. "I look for
overall trends and problem
areas for each individual
student, as well as, the entire
class. I use this data to evaluate
student needs with benchmark
mastery as the ultimate goal."
Whitehead said the.data also
serves to assist her in
evaluating her teaching skills.
"At the start of each new
year, I use data to help
determine the skills and,
concepts that require intense
attention," Whitehead said.
"This also helps me identify
strengths and weaknesses of
each student. I, therefore, can
be more prepared to meet each
individual need."
She said she feelglthe most
innovative' strategy she has,
employed over the 'last few
years is the implementation of
reading and literacy centers.
"I incorporate whole group
instruction in addition to
"providing center time each
day," Whitehead said. "Centers
provide time for students to
work 'in cooperative learning-
groups. These groups form an
effective learning community
in addition to developing
moral character and providing
practice for future thinking."
Whitehead. feels the groups
-allow each student the
opportunity to make a
contribution to the class
learning so they feel more
valuable and important. They
allow much needed time to
work with students in small
groups or individually.
"I can provide tore intense
instruction, focus on deficient -
skills and be more aware of my.
students are in relation to skill
monitoring," Whitehead said.
She feels that on-going, two-
way communication With
-studerits'ind parents is ital to
a child's academic success.
do many things to foster a
home-school partnership,"
Whitehead said. "Every Friday
I take the extra time to send
home a parent letter attached to
'the students' work for the
week' -.
The letter includes
announcements, reminders of
upcoming events and areas of
highlight or concerns for the
entire class. Tips and strategies
for parents to help their
children are given as ell.
In addition to the notes each I
week, Whitehead meets with
parents on a regular basis.
"1 meet with each child's
parents every nine-week
grading period," she said. "At
this time, we review the child's
report card and discuss
strengths and weaknesses."
Literacy is another important
part of her classroom.
"Students are prot ided time
to read self-selected literature


"on their independent reading
level," Whitehead said. "Thev
are rewarded for reading books
and strive to reach their
individual goals on a daily
basis."
She also finds' other ways to
keep her class interested in
reading.
"We keep up with current
events through Scholastic
News and nonfiction articles
from the newspaper,"
Whitehead said. "I develop
higher-order thinking activities


that they do individually and in
groups in response to the
literature we are reading. The
variety of activity keeps the
interest level high, which
increases skill retention."

Additional
funds available
for canker
reimbursement
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H..
Bronson recently applauded
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Secretary Mike Johanns and
the Bush Administration's
decision to make an additional
$100 million available to
compensate Florida citrus
growers who have lost trees to
citrus canker.
The funds come on top of
$200 million that USDA made
available in December to
compensate growers for losses
from the bacterial disease that
afflicts citrus.
"I want to express my
.gratitude to Secretary Johannis
for responding to the needs of
our growers who have been hit
hard by this devastating
disease,".Bronson said. "Since
USDA announced in January
that eradication of canker was
no longer possible, Florida
citrus growers are
understandably anxious to
know the procedures they will
have to implement to sustain
citrus production. While I
know there are more questions
than answers right now, I have
given the Secretary Johanns my
personal commitment to make
all resources of the Department
available to USDA so that this
information can be provided to
our growers as quickly as
possible. I am sure that 'the
Secretary's announcement will
provide many in our citrus
community with some much
needed relief and reassurance."
Bronson reiterated his
commitment to homeowners
who have lost citrus trees to
canker, saying he will seek
funding from the Florida
Legislature this spring to
reimburse homeowners whose
trees have been destroyed. .


Superintendent feels governor's Warning:
plan is off target with teachers Termite


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Union County
Superintendent of Schools
Carlton Faulk thinks an
incentive plan to help recruit
and retain teachers from
Florida Governor Jeb Bush is
off target.
"I think it is critical to
recruit and retain outstanding
teachers in all subject areas,"
Faulk said. "I'm just not sure
the governor's plan is the way
to go about it."
Bush is proposing a $239
million initiative to help recruit
and retain teachers. One of
Bush's plans would ,create a
$40 million grant program to
support school districts' efforts
to recruit and retain teachers.
Each district would submit a
plan to the Florida Department
of Education, which would
match the local commitment
dollar-for-dollar.
The plan would also allow
districts to be flexible in the
.way the funds are used. The
incentives could be used to
offer signing bonuses, 'housing
assistance, a down payment on
a home, training and
professional development or
payment of student loans.
Bush's plan also calls for
school districts to negotiate a
professional compensation
scale for teachers. The plan
recommends paying more to
teachers who teach in the areas
the state deems to have critical
shortages. This would include
working in a high-need school,
assuming additional duties.
outside the classroom and
producing high student
achievement in the classroom.
The plan also calls for- a
tuition .reimbursement and loan
forgiveness program. Bush is
proposing $9.7 million in the
budget of the Critical Teacher
Shortage Program. The
program reimburses teachers
for up to $10;000 in student.
loans for teaching in a shortage
subject: area. It also reimburses
up to $78 per credit hour for up
to nine semester hours
annually for completing.
courses that prepare current
teachers to teach in a shortage

approximately 3,900 teachers.
"A college loan
reimbursement plan is great for
students and new teachers,"
Faulk said. "But what about
the teachers that have years of
experience. I think the state of
Florida could successfully
attract excellent teachers if
they implemented the $30,000
per year starting salary that has
been discussed in
Tallahassee."
Bush's proposal also
includes $188 million that
would provide every teacher in
Florida with a laptop computer
to ensure more time is spent
with students and less time on
paperwork. FDOE would work
with districts to purchase the
computers and provide support
and maintaince.
"The laptop is a great idea,"
Faulk said. "But most of our
teachers have computers and
would prefer a higher salary
schedule."
Faulk said he would support
an amendment to the
constitutional provisions
relating to class size. The
measure would allow the class
size calculation to be based on
a di'strictwide average,
providing that the total number
of students assigned to each
teacher, who is teaching in a
public school classroom, must
not exceed the established
class size limits by more than
five students.
"Most of the state's new
money is spent on meeting the
requirements of the class size
reduction amendment,".Faulk
said. "Florida's school districts'
should be spending this money
of teachers and staff."
Faulk also feels that those at
the local level should have
more control over how class
size reduction is met.
"The superintendents should
have the authority to utilize
instructional methodologies
that are educationally sound
strategies, including co-
teaching, for implementing the
.class size reduction measure,"
Faulk said.

season is

under way
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging Florida
homeowners and home buyers
to take steps to protect their
homes as termite swarming
season gets under way.
Termites are responsible for
more than $700,000,000 in
costs to consumers in Florida
each year for damage and
control.
"In Florida, it isn't a
question of whether there are
termites in an area, but how
close they are to your home,"
Bronson said. "It's astounding
that, about half of the
homeowners in this state have
no termite protection. People
need to take steps to protect
what will likely be the biggest
investment they will ever make
their homes."
But Bronson also warns
consumers that they must use
licensed, reputable. companies
for pest control operations. The
Department regulates and
licenses the pest. control
industry and has more than
doubled the number of
inspections from 2,200 to
5,600 over the past four years.
The Department's Division of
Agricultural Environmental
Services can provide consumers.
with the complaint history of a
company and consumers should
also check to ensure a company
is properly licensed.
"The vast majority of. pest
control operators in this state
are responsible, well trained
and provide good service to
their customers," Bronson said.
"But our inspections show an
ongoing problem with
unlicensed pest control
companies and of course there
is no way to ensure the
workers are properly trained to
provide effective and safe pest
control. It is also unfair to the
businesses that follow the

rules."
The two main types of
termites that affect Florida
consumers are subterranean
termites, which live in soil and
attack structures from the
ground up, and drywood
termites, which can live in
isolated pieces of wood in a
structure such as attic rafters,
and can go undetected until
they cause extensive damage.
Licensed pest management
professionals have the expertise
to inspect and treat for
infestations of these termites
and provide protective
measures for homeowners.
Swarming season occurs when
termites begin to "swarm" or
leave their colonies to search
for new nesting sites. Many
homeowners discover that they
have a termite problem when
they find termite swarmers
(winged, black inspects) in
their homes.
Consumers can -take the
following steps to protect their
homes from this destructive
pest:
Remove wood piles and
other cellulose sources from
under and next to their homes.
Have an 'annual
inspection of their homes by a'
licensed professional pest
control company.
Renew their termite
protection contract annually.
Direct water sources, such,
as air conditioner drip lines
and roof downspouts, away
from the structure foundation.
When purchasing a home,
carefully check its termite
protection history.
All Floridians are urged to
review the steps they are taking
to protect their homes, from
termites and to take advantage
of information available from
the Department about how to
protect their homes and
businesses against, this
destructive pest. Information is

not only to lessen confusion,
but to comply with the
Department of Homeland
Security regulations. Without
the system in place by
September 2006, the county
would no longer be eligible to
apply for grants provided by
the department. This could be
a significant loss. Last year the
town of Worthington Springs
was awarded $190,000 by the
department to acquire a new
tanker for the town.
So were emergency
responders really trying to hide
what they were doing in the
first place?/not really.
According to the National
Fire Protection Association,
radio codes and 10 signals
began out of necessity rather
than cover up. In years,past,
radio communication was
difficult at best. With poor
transmission quality,
emergency responders needed
a way to get their message
through in the shortest possible
way:
The signals and codes were
the answer. By using the
various numbers, "rather than
lengthy text, responders could
be understood even with a poor
signal.
.-T6oday, transmission
capability and radio equipment
allow responders to clearly
transmit without the
interference previously.
experienced. The, introduction
of repeaters (devices that
amplify radio signals), more
powerful radios and larger
transmission towers have all
contributed to better signal
quality.
t'With these capabilities,,
,personnel with a hand held
radio can be heard anywhere in
the county," York said.
"Because of this, the need for
using codes and signals is now
a thing of the past."
While the transition has
gone smoothly for the most
part, some admit the change is
something they are still getting
used to.
"I catch myself still using
signals and 10 codes from time
to time,", said emergency
medical technician "M.itc.h


Andrews. "After using the one
system for so many years, it's
difficult to just switch to
saying what you mean."

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



Starke pastor has seen how God changes lives


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Five years ago, Robert
Johnson did not perceive a
change occurring in life. Also,
members of the Starke Church
of God were probably not
anticipating much change
either.
Yet change did occur.
Johnson is now in Starke,
having moved from Marianna,
and the Starke Church of God
now goes by the name River of
Life Church of God.
July 1 will mark the end of
Johnson's fifth year as pastor
at River of Life. He spent the
previous 19 years at a church
in Marianna, thinking that's
where he and his wife, Marian,
were going to retire.
"However, as many
ministers would understand,
the lord began to rattle my
cage, so to speak," Johnson
said. "We received a call from
Starke and asked if we would
consider coming. We prayed
about it and felt that was
exactly what we were
supposed to do. That's the
:reason we are here no%%."
That was the change
Johnson made in his life. Then
came a change to the church he
was called to, a church that
had gone by the name Starke
Church of God for more than
'70 years.
As Johnson sees it. there
was nothing wrong with the
-former name, but that name
*focused on the geography of
the church. River of Life is a
name that incorporates the
church's vision.
"River of Life indicates that
a dead soul can come here and
:find new life," Johnson said.
Since the name change,
Johnson said the number of
visitor cards filled out during
services has almost tripled.
The name change was \ oted
on at a meeting last month and
1 there were no dissenting votes.
Johnson said. That meeting
occurred after the church had
already undergone a
change-this one in terms of
worship.
Johnson said he believes
God spoke to him about the
issue of music in the church

and the congregation now
embraces praise and worship
music-a contemporary style
of music that, as Johnson puts
it, "quits talking about God
and just talks to God."
Johnson was not opposed to
the "southern gospel and
hymnal" singing that was


taking place in the church.
That type of music was
Johnson's background-
relatives of his were involved
in the publishing of the
standard hymnals used by the
Church of God.
The musical change and
name change came about after


Johnson, through prayer, had it
placed upon his heart that
God's overarching message for
the Starke church was that of a
"notable day."
"It was as though the Lord
spoke and said, 'It is that day
beyond which nothing will be
the same.' That gave me a clue


that there would be some deep
change involved in the
administration of this
congregation."
Embodied in that change
were components that should
form the makeup of every
church, Johnson said-rebirth
of worship, rebirth of


fellowship and evangelism.

those are the two great
commandments," Johnson
said, referencing the Bible

Perception becomes reality


When perception becomes reality in
one's mind the thought or belief
becomes prejudice and argument
"becomes futile. This subject was
prompted by an Associated Press
article that quoted Consumer Reports
as saying, "All the top picks in the
annual vehicle guide are made by the
Japanese auto makers."
The article conceded that Ford
Motor Company's __Mercury was
nti-b-erTf on the list.
I challenge the findings of the
magazine because of human prejudice
that seems to creep into its
recommendations for products: In
reading the magazine over a period of
time, although I am not a subscriber, I
am convinced that it is written and
edited by graduates of elite colleges
that don't know a pitch fork from a
salad fork. They claim to have based.

when Japanese names begin to show
up at the Daytona '500, the Indy 500,
the Sebring 24 hour and other
grueling races that test the mettle of
Smen and machines, a basis for their,
claims may become legitimate.
A few months ago, another article
appeared in print contrary to the
Consumer Reports story in which the
writer stated that a majority of cab'
operators-in-Ne-w -York drive Mercury
sedans because they have the
strongest ,transmission on the
automotive market. Today, all
automobiles have strong engines that
will .function for 150,000 miles, but
transmissions are the weak point in all
drive chains. The choice of Mercury

living with vehicles is more likely to
know automotive products.
Many years ago, when my three
children were teenagers, just learning
to drive, I bought a 1960 Ford
Fairlane four-door sedan, which,
according to Consumer Reports
bordered on being criminal, and I was
an idiot to boot. The family, including
the three children, drove the car five'
years and received outstanding
service with no breakdowns or
problems. So much for Consumer
Reports, in my book.

Broken
hearted -

widow has ___
questions
Dear Editor:'
I am writing this because m
children and I are among thl
many families that hav
deceased family member
interred at Crosby Lak
Cemetery. The recent event
that have occurred can b
described as nothing less thi
inhumane, unfair, an
- -i--sensitive- -
I became aware of thi
situation because of
conversation between Mayc
Steve Futch and another part
in my presence. To m
observation, Futch appeared ti
have very little or no empath
(or remorse) for the families
who believed they had a saf
place for their loved ones final
resting place.
The solace of seeing an angel
protecting the most importar
person in my and my children'
lives has been violted-I-haI
my husband's ashes burie
beneath a heavy slab so the
children would always have
place to be able to visit thei
Dad. This is the only way they
can interact with and show the
continue to love and include
their Dad in their lives.
It was a place where I could
go and feel a sense o
connection to my husband tha
was solid and real. Now i
looks dirty, unkempt, deserted
---and-has-cau-sed a new form o
grief and desolation. Afte
talking to other families tha
were affected by the gross and
uncaring decision to clean uI
the cemetery I came away witl
a sick heavy feeling.
My husband died six year
ago. My children were 7, 9
and 14. His death was a shock
due to a sudden coronary
Those three children are nov
13, 14, and 20. Our 20-year-ol

become a Marine reservist.


We had placed a small
unobtrusive hanging placard
about afoot above his slab that
stated "I'm a Marine Dad."
Within six months of my
husbands intermeht I bought a
small cherub to place on the
top of his slab. Other items
included a coffee mug he
iy received for a gift from one of
le the "children the Christmas
'e before he died that had the word
rs "Dad" written on it and a small
e duck that his sister placed on
's the slab' All three had been on
)e his slab for approximately 5
at years. They had to be pried
d from the top of the slab and
have left marks on the slab
is where they once resided.
a If there is a group of
)r overseers for the cemetery that
y gave the order to remove the
y items that were placed out there
o by loving family members,
y friends, or associates trying to
-s ease the indescribable pain
e incurred by there loss, then
il why did they not pursue the
most logical first step. This is
el in reference to the grass and
1t weeds that in many areas of the
s cemetery (especially around my
d- husband's slab) could have been
d cut to make it have a tidier,
e neater appearance. As for the
a insinuated accusations of
r gaudiness or excessiveness of
y momentum left at the graves
y what right did they have to
e become modern day grave
robbers. Why did they not give
d an opportunity for family
f members to remove or clean up
it their loved ones' grave sites.
t I want to point out that had I
d not been present during that
f conversation that in no way
r included me. I would not have
It been aware of the happenings
d until we visited the grave site.
p I also want it known that
h under normal circumstances we
visit the grave site at least
s monthly, more frequently if
, health and time permits. Why
k were we never given rules,
. regulations, standards, rules or
v guidelines of what we would be
d allowed to place on our loved
d ones or if there were a restraint
n on the length of time they'd be
o 'allowed to remain.
As for presenting a cleaner


cemetery in appearance they
have mutilated the slab over
my husband by prying the
three small items we had placed
on the slab I paid for.
I hope that those involved in
this overwhelming,
inconsiderate, abominable
decision and act will never
experience the site of their
loved ones final resting place
being so thoroughly
disrespected or, the lack and
neglect of 6asic human
feelings. This very wrong
decision which appears to have
been absolutely not thought
out or the feelings of the
surviving family, friends and
others considered at all has
'caused great anguish and.
unbearable grief and despair.
There is no way to replace the
small mementos like the coffee'
mug that was his in life.
I have a question for those
that made this decision, "How.
would you feel if it involved
your spouse, parent child, or
loved.one?"
Would you're actions have
been so reckless and not
thought through if it involved
your heart? No, I don't believe
there is any way to rectify what
has been done. .
An apology may 'help if
produced in earnest. I-sincerely
hope that in the future attempts
would be pursued to contact the
living to rectify unfavorable
situations before such actions'
are followed, -however I am
'also not naive enough to
believe that those people in the
position to enforce there wills
at the cost of others will
change.
A couple questions for Mr.
Futch concerning the statement
I heard you make that after,
1971 no deeds were given for
the pipts at, Crdsby lake
Cemetery. What was 'the
money I paid and others have
paid for?
Ard we renting the plots our
loved ones are resting. in and
we ourselves or other family
members will eventually
occupy? Do you and the. other
overseers (decision makers) or

Last week a couple of letters
to, the. editor appeared,
apparently in response to
Mark's article, neither of which
cleared up any issues important
to both taxpayers and citizens
interested in our well being and
using our tax dollar wisely.
The YMCA has been in our
little county barely over a year
and already it has nearly 600
members and has provided
about $82,000 in scholarships.
Through volunteers and the
help of the owners of the KOA
campgrounds close to 100 of
our children have been taught
to swim so far. Afternoon
activities at Lawtey Elementary
School, Starke Elementary and
Southside Elementary, as well...


as Union County, help our
children to expand their
knowledge and enhance the
social experience.
These achievements would
not be attained if the children
were simply being baby sat
somewhere.
Throughout this great
country nearly 3,000
communities like our allow the
Y to run their fitness and
wellbeing programs and many,
many children and adults
benefit through its scholarship
program who otherwise would
not..
There seems to be some
concern about us losing out if
the Y assumes responsibility
for all wellness and recreation
programs in Bradford County
including Starke and all other
municipalities Presently fewer
than half of our children
participate in team sports
activities. It seems to me that
we are losing out now.
Are we overlooking
something when we have
limited recreational activities
put on by several
municipalities using the tax-
payers money when one well
respected, highly qualified
volunteer agency can do it all
without using tax money and


no child or adult will be left
behind.
Is it incorrect to believe that
a highly qualified agency with
nationwide respect can do a job
better for less money?
What, pray tell, is wrong
with a governmental agency
who refuses to sit down and
negotiate the best deal possible
for the taxpayer and all of our
children.
How can anyone come to
conclusion about anything
without knowing all the facts?
The Bradford YMCA
Founders Committee is having
a meeting on the Thursday,
March 30, at the Family
Service Center at the
Vocational Center on Orange
St. and it has invited the city
commission, the city clerk, the
city manager, all the members
of the city recreation board.
Being the type of meeting
that it is, I would say that
anyone who lives in this
county who is concerned about
our children and wholesome
recreational activities are also
invited.
Let's don't let personal
interest get in the way of doing
what is right for everyone.

Young man feels violated by cemetery 'clean-up'


Dear Editor:
It is my understanding that
the current mayor and undertak-
er Steve Futch's whole outlook
on,.the destroyed grave sites is,
"Who'cares, it's over, and done
with." But what he doesn't
know is that the people who
pulled the stuff off of the plots,
headstones, and slabs have
caused a lot of emotional and
sentimental damage to the
families of the people who are
buried at the cemetery.
I am currently a 14-year-old
high school student. At the time
of "my Dad's death I was only


nine years of age and in the
third grade. The only way that I
have to speak with my Dad is at
his grave site and they've
destroyed it on me. On my own
Dad's grave there was an angel
and and where the angel was
you can see where they had to
pry it off of the slab.
I personally feel like sonie-
body has stabbed me and ripped
my heart out. The things on the
tombstones and slabs or grave
sites were the only way that the
families could associate with
the deceased family members..I.
feel just like they've broken into.


my house and stolen from m
and my family and my Dad has
died again.
I feel we deserve justice for
what has been done and a rea-
sonable explanation. Not just
we djd it in an attempt to clean
up because if they really wanted
it to look clean they'd mow the
grass and weeds which are.,
about 17 inches tall, not destroy
the things the families put on
the slabs (grave sites) at Crosby
Lake Cemetery.

,Continued from p. 1B

Lo!-d ihy God v,ith all thy
I e.i, and witli all thy soul,
and N,'ith all thy mind," and
I booH shait love thy neighbor
As for evangelism, it is the
great commission, Johnson
said, citif.g the verse, "And he
said 1nto them, Go ye into all
the world, and preach the
Sgospe! to every creature."
SJorihnson has certainly proven
iha" he loves his neighbor,
'..ving often ministered to
members of his -various
congregations 'who Tiave run
01f'.il of the lawv.
-:,.,n people out of jail
has been a, not uncommon
chatrac!tristic of my ministry,"
Johnson said.
One o.f his congregation
;n .mbrs in I'.l.ii Ir was
arrested.-for piloting a boat that
carried drui ns for someone else.
Johnson's advice for the man
was to just tell the
.truth--answer only the
questions he .was asked by
tederaf otbretiesfr but telkth'e,'
r-,ln.' 'L- wja ues.'rs *iU'i .e
"? .tc' p ,i' d c.irrl-'Ily
about that," Johnson said., "I
Just had this inner sense that
somehow God-was going to do
a miraculous thing."
What happened was the man,
li.' was sentenced tor
fo.ir- months in -an Alabama
prison on a charge involving
income (ax, but .all. drug
charges against him were
dropped. .
"'Here's why I believe that
happened: He repented of his
sin 'and he appealed-. to, the
mrercy of GJ.J," Johnson .said.
"God was merciful to him. He
got a .good slap on 'the wrist,
but that's all."
Another incident involved
another member of the church
in Marianna-a man who; as a.
_.'! k .. i four counties,
* embezzled money.: The man
was looking, at a possible' 80
years in prison. '
Johnson knew the judge the
man was going to go before, so
T.,.hnson paid the judge 'a visit. ,
He did .not try to persuade the
judge the man was. innocent.
The .man was guilty arid
admitted as much.

However, Johnson pointed
out that taxpayers were going
to have to pay to keep the man
in prison and also end -up
paying to help support his
family, which would end up on
welfare. All that on.top of the
money the man had already
stolen from taxpayers.
Johnson proposed a solution
to the judge-withhold
adjudication of guilt, place the
man on probation and allow
him to pay the money back.
"I said, 'Furthermore, if he
doesn't pay the money back,
I'll pay it,'" Johnson said.
The judge did indeed take
Johnson's advice, placing the
man on probation and allowing
him to pay the money back.
"That man repayed-
everything and he became a
pastor," Johnson said.
Johnson's road to becoming
a pastor did not involve
anything quite as dramatic as
breaking the law and avoiding
jail time. Instead, he followed
in the footsteps of his
grandfather and father, though
Johnson did not originally plan
on entering the ministry.
"I had determined at an early
age, lfkee 86-00 9', their I', 'as
going' to-br'a shorttop -fr the
Chicagb ,Vh'ire So\," Johnson
said.
Actually, Johnson said he
did not fancy a life in which
every move he made would be ,
under scrutiny, nor did he want
his children to falH under that
sjme scrutin..
However, one day as a 21-
year-old engineering student at
the Universit\ of Arizona. he'
pra4j,. asking God if his life
was 'moving in the right
direction. He asked God, to
take 'control of his life and
Johnson said he just knew that
becoming a minister is what
God wanted.
Johnson turned his, sights
from majoring in engineering.
at Arizona to attending Lee
University a Christian college
in Cleveland, Tenn. Qnly one,
problem--Johnson. had no
money to make the move.
He went to see a man at a
bank with whom he had a.
casual acquaintance with.
Johnson asked for a loan :of
$600 so he could quit his job
and move out of state.
It would be a miracle,
Johnson said, if anyone made

-Boy Scouts
host
tournament,
raise money

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Rain threatened to ruin the
event, but the 4th Annual Boy
Scouts of America Troop 70
Golf Tournament went off
without any major glitches
Feb. 25.
Thirteen teams competed in
the tournament at the Starke
Golf and Country Club.
First place went to team
members Link Bishop, Kevin
Connor, Bill Hamilton and
Brad Bishop.
The second place team was
comprised of Joe Sanford,
Skippy Crawford, Jim Spears
and Damien Ames.
The third place team
included members Skippy
Crawford, Timmy Nughton,
Scott Jones and Jeff Crawford.,
The putting contest came
down to a tie between George
(anova and Barrett Cooper.
Cooper won $25 when he sunk
His final putt.


^- ...i'.. .I





Barrett Cooper putts his way to a $25 prize
after tying with George Canova (background)
in this earlier .round.


Tournament coordinator
Wynette Browning said the,
turnout was pretty good with
13 teams competing and lots of
dedicated business who


sponsored door prizes or
course holes.
The Boy Scouts raised
money for their weeklong
summer camp in Georgia.


WIDOW
Continued from page 4B
those in the future have the
right to remove tombstones,
rock plots, still owned and
basically leased out? How long
does our lease last, eternally, a
lifetime, 99 years, until there
are no family members left, or
someone decides to sell the
cemetery or that it is no longer
feasible to have those sites
there because they aren't
maintained to a certain
unspecified code?
What will become of the old,
severely deteriorated section of
the cemetery or is that
protected because it is out of
site therefore out of mind?
Who exactly owns Crosby
Lake Cemetery and who (how


many people) comprise the
board that makes the decisions?
What gave your group the
right to touch what is not
your?
Everyone likes examples, so
here are some what if you
didn't- like the height of
someone's grass, or the-
decorations on their lawn, or a
picture hanging in their
apartment window, or a
window air conditioner doesn't
meet a governing groups idea
of the perfect condition, could
you or your agent be allowed
to enter that property or
apartment and remove what
offends a member of that
governing body? Isn't that in
comparison a form of
vandalism, theft, breaking and
entering.
I believe that even if you


consider us as only renters for
our deceased we still have
rights and just as a person in a
home or apartment has to be
notified before their premises is
entered. Shouldn't we have
been notified.

Politicians access the
Telegraph and radio station
when they are campaigning.
Why weren't these tools used
to contact families in a whole?
One last tlBought every time
we go to visit my children's
Dad and my husband we will
have to stare at the haunting\
and mocking stains that remain
on the slab. Thank you..

Luncheon raises money for breast cancer research


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
More than 100 Bradford and
Union County women
gathered at the Starke Golf and
Country Club on Feb. 23, to
support breast cancer research
in the best way they knew
how: talking, eating and
shopping.
The event raised money for
the Vera Bradley Foundation
for Breast Cancer, which Vera
B'radley Designs' owners
started after they lost a friend
to breast cancer.
The company has raised


more than $3.5 million since
1994, according to the
nonprofit organization, which
has led to cancer
breakthroughs at Indiana
University School of
Medicine.
The chair of oncology at the
university, endowed by Vera
Bradley Designs Inc., is
currently working on
biomarker technology to
discover breast cancer through
a blood test, even before a
lump appears.
The luncheon was organized
by local breast cancer survivor

Twenty percent of the sales
on that day went to the

handled the situation made her
uneasy. She recommended

USA Gymnastics students
were literally bending over
backward to raise money for
their new gymnasium.
The business has been in
existence for more than 18
years, and on Saturday, Feb.
18, it held its first ever fund-
raiser.
The Flip-a-Thon was an
event where the student
gymnasts obtained pledges for
the number of flips they could
complete. Based on his or her
skill level, any student could
perform up,to 100 jumps, flips
and other tasks requiring great
flexibility.
Money was needed for
10,000 foam cubes to fill the
training pit at the site.of the
new USA Gymnastics gym at
the Industrial Park on S.R. 100
in Starke. The cost of this
material was approximately
$7,000.
The foam will greatly

said.
Through the years, as USA
Gymnastics grew, they were
able to buy this reliable
equipment at auctions, schools,


YMCAs and organizations that
were no longer teaching
gymnastics because of the
great liability. .
Since 1988, the
McReynolds' business has
grown from those first 45
students to more than 350
students.
These students were able to
be reached because he and his
wife loaded the foldable gym
mats up on a trailer, hauling
them county to county, to
teach classes. In their early
years, they even brought their
two young children, Heatheri
and Ron, along with them.
USA Gymnastics got a more

S. Walnut St. Classes are still
held in Lake Butler a few days
a week.
A 16-week Saturday
program is held in Keystone
Heights with approximately 60
students, and a Macclenny
program has been in existence
since 17992 with approximately
70-80 students.
"We try to teach kids the
basic fundamentals of
gymnastics with progressions,"
he said.

With the new gymnasium;


(L-R) Nate Gordon, 6, Kasey Alford, 9, and Erica Kinghorn, 13, pose on

he hopes to expand the
business by offering adult
gymnastic classes if there is an
interest.
He said the gym will allow
him to offer a variety of
classes, too.
In the current gym on
Walnut Street, the students
have to be careful not to hit
roof beams on the uneven bars
or dismount the balance beam
with no mat underneath.
The new building will allow
the addition of rings, in-ground
training pits, a pommel horse,
parallel bars, more room for
tumbling and a larger
springboard floor.
Some of this new equipment
should attract more male
students.
"We'd like to offer boys
classes if we can get more
boys," McReynolds said.
The old gym had dimensions
of 80 feet by 30 feet, whereas
the new one will be 100 feet
by 50 feet, more than doubling
the area, he said. The old
ceiling height was 15 feet,
where the new one will be 18
feet at its highest point.
McReynolds said the
gundbreaking was in the
summer of. 2005, and he
owned the property for two
years prior, trying to plan and
sv,p money for the building
and equipment.
In one year's time, he said
the price of construction went
up 50 percent.
Another feature of the gym
will be heating and air-
conditioning,, a luxury he does
not have on Walnut Street.
The building will include an,
observation room for parents
and yotinger siblings, who
would wander onto the mats to'
watch their older brother or
sister practice.
All ,of these features will
allow USA Gymnastics to be
open more days a week,
McReynolds said, resulting in
a more thorough instruction
time and expanded programs.
';;.He encourages all of his
students to watch the
University of Florida
gymnastics team.
"We're noncompetitive
(right now), but we hope to
start next year," he said about
creating a competitive

Camp Blanding hosts training periods year round


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
'Camp Blanding's mission
has not changed-it still exists
to provide military training.
What has changed in recent
years is how often that training
takes place.
In the past, Blanding's busy
periods have occurred during
the summer and on various
weekends throughout the year.
However, now the post is a
busy place pretty much all year
long.
Maj. Cecil Cauley,
operations, and plans officer
with the Florida Army
National Guard, said Blanding
is not only hosting National
Guardsmen, but every branch
of military service and its
reserve components.
The Air Force's 820th
Security Forces Group, out of
Moody Air Force Base in
Georgia, has been training
monthly at Blanding.
"Their primary mission is
airfield security in country for
Operation Iraqi Freedom and
Enduring Freedom," Cauley
said. "They come here on a
monthly basis for their pre-
deployment training as they're
rotating their squadrons in and
out of the country."
A couple of weeks ago,
Coast Guard port security
boats were on one of
Blanding's lakes conducting
live fire exercises.
"This is the only place
where they can really do that,"
Cauley said, adding that
Blanding is also the only
training range available for the
Coast Guard's helicopter
interdiction tactical squadron.
Cauley said he expects
Camp Blanding to become an
even busier place in the future
as more and more military
units look: for places to,
conduct their training because

Riley has christened "Bradford
County Strawberry." Her
personal favorites are plumeria
and pearberry, but the Scent of
the Month for March is
"Country Pear Pie," a blend of
pear, spiced pear and creme
brulee.
Scent Bar's conception took
place .three years ago while
browsing an online store
offering, only a handful of
fragrance choices. Her research
discovered similar offerings
with similarly limited choices.
A self-described "princess,"
Riley set out to establish a
shop offering boundless
choices. That shop opened on
Walnut Street in January.
Riley once owned a salon at
the comer of Call and Walnut,
The Nailerie, but relocated to
Jacksonville with her husband
when the Navy stationed him
at Mayport. A Bradford County
native with deep roots in the
community, she said she was
desperate to get back
downtown.
"I think downtown should be
a hip little hub, so we're
working on that," Riley said.
Main Street Starke' Inc.
Manager Kim Skidmore said.
she was thrilled with Scent Bar
and proud that Riley was doing
something exciting, innovative
and new downtown.
Riley is joined by her
mother, Sandra Jones, who has
been doing hair for 35 years
and now "\orks next door at
Joli Chevaux. Also on board


are her -sisters, Ashly and
Deana Jones, who are in charge
of sales and distribution and
enthusiastically join customers
in scent selection.
How appropriate that a shop
all about bath and beauty is
really cleaning up. Riley said
business has surpassed
expectations. The response has
been awesome, she said.
"We did probably 12 times
better than what we thought
we would do in the first
month, so I was very
impressed with that," she said.
With a newly launched Web
site and plans to open


additional shops in Fleming
Island and Atlanta by the end
of next year, Riley is bathing
in her own success.
The Scent Bar is located at
116.N. Walnut St. and online
at www.scentbaronline.com,
where you can find a complete
product listing, descriptions of
the shop's ever-expanding
fragrance collection and send a
gift to a friend-or have
something mixed for yourself
and ready to- pick up on your
way home. To plan an in-shop

closest friends, call the shop at

Thinking is also a critical
-:part of certain live-fire
exercises where targets pop up,
but not every. target should be
shot. Such exercises train
soldiers to be prudent and
discriminate when firing their
weapons, Cauley said.
Training in convoy-
operations has also become
important sithce the Jessica

Cauley said. "Four or five

a small community is used for
such purposes and is located
on Blanding's south post.
Troops training at Camp
Blanding are also learning
individual skills such as
:reflexive firing, in Which
soldiers bring their weapons up
and fire at a target quickly
without aiming.
"Reflexive fire is a very
good survival tool for, our
soldiers in close-quarters
situations like they are in built-
up areas." Cauley said.,
While this type of training is
taking place year round, Camp
Blanding will still experience
its busiest time during the
summer., with annual trainifig
periods scheduled for June 3-

Kingdom in the past, as well as
units from Austria, Bermuda,
Canada, France, Germany and
the Netherlands.
Hosting units from other
countries works out quite well
as the soldiers and their
American counterparts have a
lot in common despite their
differences.
"Sometimes there are a few
things you have to take into
consideration with their local
customs and culture, and also
you have to ensure that you've
got good lines of
communication because
sometimes you may have a
language barrier," Cauley said.
Cauley said he spends a lot
of time on post during summer
AT periods, adding that the
couch in his office sleeps
pretty well. That's not to say
he doesn't enjoy his position
when the AT periods roll
around.
"It makes for long days, but
it's a good challenge," Cauley
said. "There is always a lot of
variety in supporting
customers because customers'
needs always change.
"We really look at ourselves
as a customer-service-based
organization. Our customers
are the people who are
conducting the training."
It all falls in line with the
vision statement of Col. Benny
Nelson", the commander of
Camp Blanding. The first rule
is to take care of the customer.
The second is to take care of
those who take care of the
customers. The third rule is to
refer back to the'first rule.
Cauley said Brig. Gen.
Stewart Rodeheaver of thie 48h
Infantry Brigade, out of
Georgia. made the comment
that ;his unit was able to get
twice as much training in half
the; time at Camp Blanding
than if the. had been at Fort
Stewart, for example.
' That kind of comment sheds
light on the relevance of the
work ;done by those at
Bandingg,
"Thai's our primary federal
mission$ to provide a training
facility for troops to enhance
their readiness," Cauley said.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY

Jason Smyth delivered a hit
down the first-base line with
the bases loaded to give the
Bradford baseball team a 9-8
win over visiting Union
County in eight innings -on
March 2
The Tornadoes, who
allowed the Tigers to score
three unearned runs in the first
inning, trailed for most of the


game and were down two runs
in the bottom of the seventh.
Smyth and John Ryan
Palladino hit consecutive
singles before Smyth 'stole
third after Justin Mundorff
struck out. An error on the
throw to third allowed Smyth
to come home and pull his
team within one.
Jernard Beard ripped a
single into right field that
scored Palladino, tying the
game and sending it into extra


innings.
Union's Jeremy Shuler led
off the eighth by drawing a

shortstop Cory Elasik.

led off his team's half of the
eighth with a high pop-up that
dropped for a single. Zach

BHS players Newman, Nichos will play at St. Johns


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford High School senior
Jachael Nichols was not
planning on playing volleyball
in college. Instead, she was
focusing all of her attention on
working toward a nursing
degree.
Her teammate Tosha
Newman, however, knew she
could play beyond high school
and told her, in fact, that she
wbuld.
Newman -was right as both
players were offered
scholarships by St. Johns River
Community College in Palatka
after participating in open-gym
tryouts.
"When I tried out, I just felt
something different," Nichols
said. "Something in my heart
told me I needed to play. Now
I've got a full scholarship and
I'm going to take advantage of
it."
Newman already had the
desire to continue playing in
college. She said she knew she
could, but admitted she did not
know if she would get the
opportunity.
"I wasn't sure what was
going to happen, but I'm
happy," Newman said.
What happened' was former
Bradford head volleyball
* coach Shari Bishop made calls
to college coaches on the


players' behalf.
"I made a promise to (the
players) when I resigned (after
the 2004 season) that if any of
them had a desire to plry in
college, it was my job to give
them that opportunity," Bishop
said.
Brian Pappas, the head
coach at St. Johns, was the first
person Bishop called and he
invited Newman and Nichols
to a tryout. He was impressed,
not just with their athletic
ability, but with their
enthusiasm, which he said is a
key component of a player's
success at the collegiate level.
"Most girls at this level have
athletic ability, but a lot of
them lack the enthusiasm
necessary to carry them on and
make them be able to work
hard at that level," Pappas
said. "They appear to have
that."
Newman expressed exactly
that kind of enthusiasm when
Pappas told her and Nichols
that they would participate in
three weeks of all-day
practices prior to the start of
school.
"If I'm playing volleyball, I
don't care," Newman said.
Bishop, who coached
Newman for three years, was
impressed with Newman's
ability the first time she saw
her-during a spring camp

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Wi iter
Mary Andre%%. the head
volleyball coach at Florida
CommunitN College at
S Jacksonille, admitted she's
not a high-intensity recruiter.
So when she heard that
Keystone Heights High School
senior Jessica Ford was
." interested in the school.
Andrew knew she and her
coaches had to meet with her
and give her a tour of the
school.
Ford signed a letter of intent
March 3 to play at FCCJ.
"We're excited to have her
come to ,tie team and join our
program," Andrew said.'
"She's a high-quality
volleyball player and we feel
extremely fortunate that she
chose us."
Ford did receive an offer
from a four-year program-the
University of North Florida in
Jacksonville-but she wanted
to start out somewhere she felt
comfortable.
FCCJ is.that place, she said.


because she knows some of the
players who will be there with
her.;.' .. .
"I think I'll fit in just right
there,"Ford said.
Don't think. however, thai
because she's attending a
junior college that she won't
be involved in a high level of,
volleyball.
"This is one of the best
junior college programs in the
r country," Key stone head coach
Scott Cohkling said. "They're
always nationally ranked. It's
v\ery high-caliber volleyball .
"I just think she's going to
do a really good job there. It's
a really good fit for her, I
think. It's a great program and
it's going to be a great
opportunity for her."
Conkling doesn't think Ford
will have a tough transition to
make because she's played
against some good players in
club ball.

"She played against kids last
year who are already in
Division I or Division 11
schoolss)" Conkling said.

the middle.
.. "That is a position that
requires very fast foot speed
.and good hand-eye
coordination," Bishop said.'
"She has that and- she's
explosive."

Newman and Nichols and sees
similar players.

"When the level of play goes
up. your skill ability needs to

Conkling said there's no

For now, though. FCCJ is
the right place for her to be

Pappas expects both players
to get plenty of playing time
,and adds that'they have a
chance to continue playing
after two years at St. Johns.
"I think if they work hard,
they'll both have an
opportunity to play at a four-
year school," Pappas said.
St. Johns is a program
seemingly on the rise. The
team won four matches prior
to Paippas' arrival. In his first
year as coach, the team won 11
matches, then followed that up
with 12 wins last season and
an appearance in the state
tournament for the first time in
five years.
