year were put into a drawing for a limousine ride. That ride took them to dinner at
Texas Roadhouse. One student from each grade was picked. The winners and library
staff are pictured above. They are (1-r) LBMS Library Assistant Susie Crawford,

.station would be brand new.
SLast year the town received a
$190,000 grant from the
,Department. of Homeland
Security. The grant allowed the
town to purchase a new truck
complete with equipment. The
town expects to take delivery
of the truck-in September of
this year.
The third obligation: the
town outlines is the paying of
bills. According to the letter,
the town-will be responsible to
pay insurance on the building,
the equipment and the
-volunteer firefighters.
Governing bodies in Florida
that have fire departments are
required to carry workers'
compensation insurance on all
personnel .
The final obligation the tow n
listed would possibly help the
countN save a little bit of
Money. If the counts takes
.over the department, the town
would agree to give up the
$6,000 annual contribution it
receives for the fire
S department. The fee was put in
place during a long battle o er
the town's interlocal
agreement %%ith the county.
The fee is to help offset costs
:of the fire department
responding to calls outside city
limits.
The town is only expecting
the county to be responsible
for three things. The first
would be for the county to
.provide a fire chief and EMS
director. This item was a
'sticking point for the county.
At the time the proposal first
came before the county,
Chairman Wayne Smith said
he was not sure if the county
would have a fire chief. The
S.board and EMS Director!Fire
thief Allen Parrish were
;negotiating a change in his
hours and salary at the time
.Smith told to" n
representatives that until the
matter was settled, the county
could not move forward. Last

than the state average.
The group also had an
increase in the math portion of
the test. Sixth-graders showed
a 6 percent increase over 2005
scores. Fifty-five percent of the
students scored a three or
above on the test. This was a 2
percent increase over the state
average.
The class showing the
largest deficit over 2005 in any
one area were fifth-graders. On
the math portion of the exam,
the amount of fifth-graders
scoring a three or above
declined by 9 percent. It was a
19 percent deficit over state
percentages. That same group
also showed a 3 percent
decline on the reading portion.
The scores were 6 percent
below state averages of 67
percent.
The second largest deficit
shown in any one area was by
seventh-graders. The group
showed a 6 percent decline in
the math portion of the FCAT.
In a surprising twist, the group
showed a five percent increase
in the reading portion of the
test. Both were below state
averages. This is only one of
three groups that showed a
decline in one area and an
increase in the other.
One other group that showed
both gains and declines was
* the fourth-grade class. On the
positive side, the group
increased the number of
students earning a three or
higher on the, math portion by
9 percent. The decrease came
when the group slipped by 2
percent on the reading portion
of the test. The percentages in
both areas "ere abo e the state
average.
The last group that showed
both an increase and decrease
were eighth-grade students. On
the math portion, students
showed a 2 percent increase
over 2005. On the reading
portion, the group showed a 7
percent decrease from last
year. Both areas were below
the state percentages.
Tenth-grade students had a
decrease in both areas of the
test. On the reading portion,
the students showed a 3
percent decrease from the
previous year. In math, the
decrease was 5 percent. Both
areas ..were below state
averages.
Third-grade students :were
the only togroup to increase
one area yet stay the same in
the other. The group registered
.a 7 percent increase on the


reading portion of the FCAT.
Oni thle math portion, the group
had 85 percent score a three or
higher on the exam. This
matched the 2005 total. Both
areas \were above the state
average. The math area was 13
percent above the 2tate
average.
Grades for all three Union
County schools are due out
June 14.

The Union County

small settlements no longer in
existence. Early maps., court
documents, legal papers,
railroad or military
memorabilia, old bottles such
as medicine or Coca-Cola were
in, period clothing,
photographs, naval store items,
farming implements,
yearbooks and old cameras are
just some of items the museum
is looking for.
Plans are' being made to
open the. museum on Sundal a
afternoons. In order to do this,
volunteers are needed to give a
couple of hours of their time
once a month to host and guide
visitors, among the treasure, on
display. ,
"Please come by on any
Monday morning and share
your treasure," said UCHS
Officer Bill McGill. "If not,
give your gift of community
service as a volunteer museum
guide.

'or a better world, none is
so indispensable, none so
powerful, as hope. Without
hope men are only half

sheriff's office report shows
other law enforcement
violations were addressed as
well. During the effort, 14
felony.arrests were made, five
fugitives were apprehended
and seven individuals with
suspended licenses were taken
off the road. The department
also issued six speeding
tickets.
Of the citations issued,

Cbu-nty-- 'Sheriff Jerr'y
Whitehead said he had seen. .
"It's difficult to remember a
time when one deputy issued
more tickets during an
enforcement wave,"
Whitehead said.
He said he is also convinced
the effort had a positive effect
on the number of individuals
who were buckling up.
According to the report, an
observations survey at S.R.
121 and C.R. 231 showed that
only 36 percent of the drivers
going through. the intersection--
were using their seatbelt. At
the completion of the effort
another, one was done. that
showed 72 percent of drivers
to be wearing the safety
device.


Whitehead said the
campaign was particularly
important this year in light of
January's bus crash.
"WJile we were vigilant
before the crash, we became
more focused on traffic
enforcement after," Whitehead
said. "This campaign helped us
to focus on it even more."

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




Brooker woman 's life history is now a book


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
'It started out as simply a
means of holding onto a bit of
family history, but before
Hazel Hoffman .Wall knew it,
she was writing a book.
"Cracker Girl: A Love
Story" was published this year
by Vantage Press Inc. The
book is a detailed account of
Wall's life, which she said her
children had been after her to
write down so it wouldn't be
forgotten.
Wall, too, was interested in
writing about her life,
especially the parts of it she
shared with her husband, J.E.
"Bill" Wall.
"It seemed like we had quite
a varied life and so many
experiences that I didn't want
forgotten," Hazel Wall said. "I
just started writing. I never
realized, it was going to be a
book."
Wall, a resident of Brooker,
said she thought the book
would have a limited audience,
but there were more people
than she thought who wanted
to read it.


"I really didn't think
anybody would be interested in
reading it but maybe the
family," she said. "I was a
little bit surprised after the
book was printed that more
people seemed interested in
it."
Some of those experiences
include owning a couple of
businesses in Bradford
County: a store in Lawtey,
described by Wall in her book
as a "typical 'General Store' of
the time," and a motel, the
Bradford Motor Court, which
was opened Sept. 1, 1952, on
U.S. 301 just north of Starke.
"At first we had only AAA
and Superior Courts ratings,
but after we had been in
business less than a year we
received the Quality Courts
rating, the best there was,"
Wall wrote in her book.
The book recounts Wall's
life prior to meeting her
husband, but she said the book
"didn't really get good" until
he came into her life.
"I was well into the story
before I realized it was going
to be a love story," Wall said.
"It started out just as the story


of my life, but so much of it
has been about the two of us."
They met each other in
1935, as seniors in high school
in Punta Gorda. They kissed
each other for the first time at
a beach party, and Bill told a
friend of his afterward that he
kissed his wife that night.
Hazel, however, said she did
not know Bill had such serious
feelings for her. He never
seemed to show any interest in
her immediately after the
party, but that was because Bill
had no car-he did not feel he
could ask Hazel out on a
proper date. Bill actually rode
a bicycle to school from his-
home 7 miles away.
"The county paid him $7 a
month to keep up his bicycle
so they wouldn't have to run a
bus out where he lived," Hazel
said.
The two did eventually get
together again-this time at
the fair where they and two
other students worked their
school's booth.


"We took care of the booth
and had time to ride the Ferris
wheel," Bill said. "The
operator of the Ferris wheel,
when we got right up to the top
there, he stopped it and we
kissed again."
Hazel wrote in her book that
it wasn't long before they were
dating every week. There did
come a time where they
separated, but they eventually
got back together.
"I was not happy, and he
was not happy; we could not
be happy apart," Hazel wrote
in her book.
They married in 1937 and
had six children: Johnny,
Wayne, Becky (who died in
infancy), Wanda, Mike and
Stephen. When Stephen, the
youngest, began kindergarten,
Hazel, at the age of 44, began
her college career. The family
was living in Lake City at the
time and that was the year that
Lake City Community College
.opened.
"I felt like I needed to go to


p


college." 'she said. "I %\anted to
learn more,"
Hazel would go on to
graduate from the University


Hazel Wall
had quite a
lot of events
to write about
concerning
her life: living
during the
Great
Depression,
starting
college at the
age of 44 and
recovering
from a stroke.

out as far as writing another
book, but she did enjoy writing
"Cracker Girl." It was a
process that began in 2003-a
process that began with a little
bit of frustration. Hazel had
bought a computer, but she just
could not figure out how to use
it.
"If I had to learn that
computer first, it would take
me so long I couldn't write the
book," she said. "I just sat
there at my desk and wrote
with my.pen. I penned it all."
She spent several hours each"
.day. writing down her life's
past. There was a time during
that process when Hazel
.attended weekly meetings of
fellow writers at the
Millhopper branch of the
Alachua County Public
Library. Each person read
what he or, she had written
during the week at' those
meetings.
Other than that,. the only
person who was privy to what
she was writing:. wasi'her'
husband. He' found it
interesting to read.her recap of
their lives together.


"I told her she was doing a
great job and to keep at it,"
Bill said.
Bill has always been there to
encourage her, whether it had
to do with her writing the
book, attending college or
painting, which is a hobby of
hers.
"He's prejudiced, but he
always seemed to like (the
paintings) so much and
encouraged me to do it." Hazel
said.
"She gave away so many of
her paintings I had to put my
foot down in order to keep just
two or three of them," Bill
said, as he admired one of his
wife's paintings hanging on a
wall in their home.
Bill's encouragement and
Hazel's determination kept her
going for the 13 months it took.
her to write the book. She.
made just one revision to it
before sending it off to be
published.
However, Hazel had one
more chapter she wanted to
add. She had a stroke after
sending the book to the
publisher, and she x anted to
write about the experience and
include it. That part of her life
now makes up the 17th, .and
final, chapter.
"The last chapter, I think,
did make the book better,"
Hazel said. "It kind of finished
it off."
Her family seems to like the
book a lot, Hazel said. She said
a nephew of hers told her he
understood more about his
mother because of the book.
"He never knew that much
about her," Hazel said.
Though she may not write
another book, Hazel- ha found
that "Cracker Girl" has
inspired others to write,
including Bill's 99-year-old
aunt.
"She said she was going to
start writing her life story,"


CRACKER GIRL


A Love Story


The cover of Hazel Wall's book, "Cracker Girl,"
features a photo of Wall at the age of 3.


Hazel said. "I've had several
others tell ime-that they were
.going ..to do if One ,of my
nieces said that she appreciated
my honesty in the.book. I
guess I wrote things that she
wouldn't ha'e ,written, but'she
said it made her want to write.
and she was going to write her
life'story.


"I think maybe it has been
'an encouragement to some
people."

If interested in purchasing
the book. Vantage Press
recommends contacting a local
bookstore and requesting a
special order.

Join the tradition


The 40th Annual Strawberry Golf
Tournament has become a tradition in
North Florida for golfers to enjoy a
golfing weekend, to meet competitors
and old friends, and to make new
friends. The Starke Golf Course, now
owned by Tatum Enterprises Inc. is
improving each month and play is
increasing as more people learn about
the excellent layout and improved
fairways and greens.
In fact, the owners report the club is
now breaking e\en. and they look
forward to a black figure in the profit
column for the year's operation.
Players teeing off on the No. 1 hole
can see trees and stumps have been
removed on the east end of the driving
range, but the Tatums aren't talking
"about the "back nine" just yet.
However, a family member said the
.ground clearing is a prelude to
expansion of the course. When a
player reaches hole two, he can see
-the-stand---of-ttfbieT adjoining the
course on the east has been harvested.
The Tatum Sawmill interests bought
that 500-acre plot of land and planted
pines from J.R. Whitehead several
years ago. The original 138 acres on
which the golf course was built
contain some wetlands, precluding a
"back nine" being built unless
additional land is secured. The
adjoining Tatum timberland will
provide the necessary space for
expansion, as well as space for
development, which may be the route
planned by the Tatum family.
In prior years, the Strawberry
Tournament has been held during
strawberry season in April, but last
year it was washed out by heavy rains
and rescheduled for a June date.
Unio'rtunatdly, it rained 'aghin.


Thanks to the
Melrose
community
Dear Editor:
SAs I'm sure )ou are aware by
now. Jill and I sold the
Melrose Cafe in January.
I want to thank all of our
great customers for the support
you have given us over the
past 20 .\ears W\e were.so
S foTr Iatef to star our business


shortening the tournament to a one-
day outing and a much smaller field
than usual.
Even so, the event provided a
cliffhanger finish as Tatum Davis
battled Tom Sykes for first place. In a
three-hole playoff, Sykes bested
Davis. with a birdie for the win.
This. year's tournament, scheduled
for Saturday and Sunday, June 24-25,
will be limited to 80 players assigned
to flights by handicaps in fairness to
all classes of golfers. Flight winners
will be awarded golf equipment in
keeping with PGA rules and
regulations, which forbid cash
awards.
There is no admission charge for
attending the tournament, and
spectators are encouraged to walk the
course and watch the golfers close up.
Those watching will be treated to
some very fine golf shots, as well as
some heartbreakers. Alligator Creek
will take its toll on errant golf balls as
usual as it crosses fairways four times
on each side.
The Strawberry Golf Tournament
has traditionally drawn golfers from a
large area in North Central Florida
with winners from Palatka,
Gainesville, Jacksonville, Starke and
elsewhere. Local players Bill Adams
and Richard Gaines have represented
their home town well in multiple
wins. Will Tatum Davis- keep the
trophy at home this year? Local,
people are hoping Tatum is on top of
'his game that weekend.
Come out and support your favorite
player. It will be a win-win time for
everyone.

and be grateful to all of you.
At the same time I was

to a fund to send me back to

We would like to extend a
special thanks to our sponsors,
including Century 21

have lost their fight with
cancer.
Because of your presence,
others may know that winning
Sthe battle is possible and,
hopefully, never have to face
the same struggles.

all the principals, teachers, and
students at Keystone Heights

make that trip possible.
As enjoyable as the trip was,
we were happy to arrive back

different ways that it is


impossible to list them all.
As this year's event chair, I
would like to thank each

"Assisted Living"

This is devoted to raising public awareness about this model of service for the elderly.

Assisted living represents a combination of housing and personal care services to elderly

individuals who may need assistance. Assisted living fills a need between total

independence and total dependence.'Assisted living can deliver care to the elderly in a

more cost-effective way than other elderly healthcare options. Su-El's Retirement Home

provides this in a homelike setting. Su-El's services are tailored for the individual which

allows a resident to maintain independence vs. support services which allows a person to

age in peace. Su-El's has a variety of senior housing alternates available to address the

varying needs of seniors. This enables a resident to adjust and add to the list of ADL's

without moving to a more institutionalized setting. We also provide Adult day-care for

those times when a small break in routine is necessary. Su-EI's is 45 minutes from

Jacksonville; 25 minutes from Gainesville Just 1 mile South on CR 325, Hampton,

Former CO
gets
probation
A former state prison
correctional officer was placed
on probation for his role in a
steroid ring.
Bryan Griffis. 35, was
sentenced last week in federal
court to five years probation
and must perform 250 hours
community service, forfeit
$2,500 and pay $34,705 in
restitution to the state of
Florida at the rate of $150 a
month.
Two other men who were
implicated in the embezzlement
scheme have had their cases
turned over to state officials. If
convicted they could be ordered
to share in. the restitution
payment, federal officials said.
Griffis is the last of six
former state correctional
officers sentenced for their part
in a steroid distribution ring
that targeted softball players
who worked for the Florida
Department of Corrections.
Griffis was sentenced for
embezzling from the Florida
State Prison/New River
Correctional facility recycling
program that he managed.
Griffis directed two other state
workers, one a brother-in-law,
to sell the recyclables and.split
the proceeds with him instead
of turning over the proceeds to
the state.
Griffis pled guilty in
September 2004 to his part in
a scheme to import steroids
from Egypt for distribution to
state prison workers and others.
He has been cooperating with
federal officials who
investigated the drug use and
other crimes involving the
DOC.

BY DUSTIN HORN
Telegraph Staff Writer
The elderly are becoming a
popular target for fraud and
theft, and, many times family
members are to blame.
In Starke alone there have
been- 10 cases- -of- elderl-
exploitation reported from
1999-2005, said Sgt. Bill
Brown of the Starke Police
Department. .
Theft is one of the most
common forms of elderly
exploitation, said Richard
Fagan, co-owner of Home
Instead Senior Care in,
Gainesville.
In-home caregivers generally
have access to checks,
checking accounts -and credit
cards, Brown said.-
"We had a case where a lady
was taking care of her aunt and
had her name put on the
account," Brown said. "She
got her own card, changed the
address and went crazy."
A majority of' the
exploitation is done by family,
Fagan said.
"A minimum of 50 percent
and probably as high as, 65-70
percent is family," Brown said.
Fagan said there are, two
things every elderly- person
needs to consider before
bringing in a
caregiver-finances .and,
security.
"The big question is who's
the employer" Fagan said.
The employer is responsible
for taxes, workers'
compensation and insurance..
he said.
When you bring someone in
" and pay them, you become the
employer, Fagan said.
He said home% ners
insurance t\picall\ doesn't--
co'er an', injuries that happen"
to employees in the home.
And that is only'. the


In 1973, when the NWTF
was founded,. there were an
estimated- 1.3 million wild
turkey:s-and 1.5 million turkey
hunters. Thanks to the .%ork of
%\ildlife agencies and the
.NWTE's man_.v lunteers and
partners, todaN there are nearly.
seven million wild turkeys and
almost three million turke)
hunters.
Since 1985, the' NWTF and
its cooperators .ha\e spent
more than $224 million


financial side.
If the"caregiver is going to
be driving the person around,
the person needs to know
about any past traffic tickets,
Fagan said.
The safest way to go is with
a company that does all of the
tasks .the employer -is
responsible for, Fagan said.
A company that provides in-
home caregivers can pay taxes,
do background checks and pay
for workers' compensation.
But be cautious because some
organizations that provide in-
home caregivers do not handle
the accounts for taxation and
.workers' compensation, Fagan-
s- aid.
He said there are many
longterm care insurance plans
available that will pay for an
in-home caregiver service.
But in-home caregivers
aren't the only ones looking to
scam the elderly.
Brown said there are a
number of lottery scams going-
on right now that are targeting
the elderly.
People are receiving letters
from Canada and Mexico
saying the recipient has just
won a lottery, he said. Many
times the individual never even
signed up for a lottery.
: People cash the fake lottery
checks then are asked by flue
-sender to return part of the
money for a processing fee, he
said.
One man .sent $3,500 -to
Mexico.
Brown is a part of Fraud-
Net, an organization of law
Enforcement and bankers that
track and report fraud.
S.If you receive any letters that,
promise money and the letter
seems suspicious, or know of
--any forms of elderly
exploitation or abuse, contact
Sgt. -Bill Brown at (904) 964-

BC residents want Bike Fest to have positive impact


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
They have seen several
events come into Bradford
County and leave, without
making any kind of a
contribution back to the
county.
The organizers of Starke's
Bike Fest, which starts today,
June 15, at the Bradford
County Fairgrounds and runs
through Saturday, June 17, call
Bradford County home and
they want their first-ever event
to put something back into the
community in which they live.
Johnny Watterson, James
Gibbs. and Terri Gibbs have
put Bike Fest together, as well
- as establishing event company
Triple J Productions. Along
the way they have encountered
some concerns from local
officials about the event, most
notably centering on the sale
of beer at the event.
However, those beer sales
will eventually benefit people
Sin.need. The trio, along with
Watterson's wife, Michelle,
established the Community
Assistance and Relief
Foundation Inc. Proceeds from
beer sal` s at Bike Fest will go
Into the foundation and help
!local people who have been
.A o'. ,.


the victims of residential fires,
who have serious injuries or
illnesses and elderly people
who have trouble paying their
utility bills. ?
"We wanted to help our
community," Watterson said.
Watterson was born and
raised in Starke. He grew up
on a farm and worked in the
prison system for 17 years,
then switched gears by
opening a motorcycle
accessories shop. He opened
J&J Motorcycle Accessories
with a partner, but is now the
sole owner.
That was a little over a year
ago. Though Watterson, a
.lifelong motorcyclist, saw a
need for such a business in
Starke, he has been surprised
to see just how much of a
demand there is.
"Looking back, my only
regret was that I didn't do it
sooner," Watterson said.
James Gibbs was born in
Lake City, but he spent his
time living both there and in
Bradford. County, where his
mother's family is from. He
went to elementary school and
middle school in Bradford
before moving back to Lake
City, where he met Terri.
When James and Terri got


married, they did so in
Bradford County, across the
street from the Bradford-Union
Vo-Tech. The county has been
home for the couple ever since.
"Grandpa said a long time
ago, 'If you ever take your
shoes off and get Bradford
County mud between your
toes, it's hard to shake loose,"'
James said.
Terri spent 20 years working
off and on at Powell's Dairy
Freeze, while James had his
own dry wall business.
"I was subbing out my
business from a big company
and they took off to Nevada,"
James said. "My wife didn't
- really want me to go (out
there). We had some money
saved up, so I figured I'd put it
to use."
That money was used to-
purchase a bar on S.R. 100
which opened under the new
name of Madison Street
Station three years ago. The
couple had never been
involved in running such a
business before, with James
saying he and Terri figured
they'd just give it a try.
Now, the couple, along with
Watterson, are trying to do
something else they've never
done before-pull off a
successful first-time eent' that
will be welcomed back b) the
community in successive
years.
James Gibbs said he
discussed the idea of Bike Fest
several years ago with some
other people. It was to be a
one-day event, but the mention(
of alcohol at the event "kind of
stopped it right there in its
tracks before it ever got
started," James said.
That was still a hurdle to
clear with the fair association


Bike afficionados (from left) Johnny. Watterson, James Gibbs, Terri Gibbs and
Watterson's wife, Michelle (not pictured), are the organizers of Starke's Bike Fest.


and the city of Starke when
Gibbs resumed plans of putting
on such an event with
Watterson. The fact that local
law enforcement will be
present helped, plus the fact
that alcohol proceeds will go
into the Community
Assistance and Relief
Foundation Inc.
Watterson said he doesn't
see the sale of alcohol at the
event as being a problem.
Many present may not even
drink, such as the- 700-800.
members of the Christian
Motorcycle Association
Watterson is expecting at the-
event.
Those that do drink can be
responsible about it.


"Just because they're
drinking beer doesn't mean
they're going to get drunk and
crazy," Watterson said. .
Watterson and Terri Gibbs
mention the fact that other
cities that hold bike festivals
embrace the presence of bikers
in their communities. Gibbs
said she and her husband were
spending an anniversary in
Daytona Beach when they
noticed the disrepair of an
elevator in a hotel.: They
inquired what happened and
were told by the locals that the
damage was done by students
in the area on spring break.
Daytona Beach residents
would rather have'bikers than
partying college students in


their town because they don't
tear anything 'up and they
spend more money, Gibbs
said.
Watterson said you'll find
those sentiments.:echoed b\

"You ask those people how
they feel about bikers and
they'll tell you that. they will

He just returned from a rock
festival in Sweden, where he
and his band played before
60,000 people, but Molly
Hatchet's Bobby Ingramin is just
as excited about the
;,opportunity to play at Starke's
Bike Fest on Saturday;, June
SJ7, a9 p.m.
You may recall the Hatchet
song "Gator Country'" that
_ proclaimed the Jacksonville
group's love for this state. That
kind of sums up why there was
no hesitation in agreeing to
play Bike Fest. Ingram said it's
always enjoyable 16o play a
show close to home.
"It feels good to play here
because we've. got so many
friends here." Ingram said.
Molly 'Hatchet may seem
like just the 'name of a band
from the past, but the band that
released its first album in 1978
is still plenty busy. The group
is in the midst of a tour
(throughout the U.S. and
Canada). working on a DVD
release that will also include
Blackfoot arid the Atlanta
Rhythm Section, set-to go into
the, studio.at the end of the
year to woik on a new album
and working on a project with
Country Music Television.
"We're still having fun with
all this and we're still 'Flirtin'
with Disaster,'" Ingram said,
quoting one ,.f the group's
best-known songs.
Molly Hatchet has played at'
all kinds of events, including
bike festivals. Ingram said
Molly Hatchet is a "blue-
collar" group that is the
"epitome of biker bands." He
*said he' has always had great
experiences with the biker
community.
"They're good people, they
really are," Ingram said.
Picturing Molly Hatchet,
playing before bikers at a
southern venue is not 'hard to
imagine, but a rock festival in
Sweden? The group has toured

the world and must enjoy a fair
amount of success in Europe.
The band's .1996 album
"Devil's Canyon" was voted
the number-one rock album in'
Europe and 2002's "Locked
and Loaded" was the first live
album to chart in Europe in
seven years.
'"Southern rock and roll is
everywhere," Ingram said. He
adds that the group's songs
seem to appeal to everybody


because the I rics center on
life, family and friendships.
Plus, it's "'good old foot-
stomping" music.
The foot-stomping music
that will be performed at Bike
Fest will cover a span of more
than 25 years..You can expect
the classics along with newer
material.
"People are definitely going
to get an earful,".Ingram said:
He likens the Hatchet set list.

Bikers are helpful people from all walks of .ife


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Johnny Watterson, one of
the organizers of Starke's Bike
Fest, which starts its three-day
run at the Bradford County
Fairgrounds Thursday, June
15, is hoping for a turnout of
20,000-25,000. What Starke
residents may want to know is
just what kind of people are
these 20,000 or so who will be
riding into town.
'What kind of person is a
biker?
"Actually, it's hard to
explain what, a biker is,"
Watterson said.
That's because bikers come
from all walks of life.
Watterson said they are
typically middle-aged
professionals.
As James Gibbs, another
organzier of Bike Fest puts it,
"It could be your lawyer. It ,
could be your judge. It could
be your brain surgeon."
There is truth to Gibbs'
statement. In fact, Starke-can
boast of a judge (Johnny
Hobbs) and lawyer (Terry
Brown) who ride.
Also, there are several


members of the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office who
ride, including the
sheriff-Bob Milner-hirmself.
Milner, who owns a Harley-
Davidson, said he has read
recent statistics that reveal the
average age of a Harley owner
is 47, and that owner has a
median income of $57,000.
It paints quite a different
picture some people may have
of bikers-a picture that has
'been painted by movies and
the media.
In movies, bikers have been
portrayed as rebels who refuse
to conform to society's norms,
or as rowdy beer drinkers or
pot smokers. They may be
members of violent gangs.
Then you have real-life
incidents, such as when the
Hell's Angels, hired for stage
security, killed one spectator
and beat up others at a 1969
Rolling Stones concert at the
Altamont Speedway in
northern California.
Such bikers are termed as
"one-percenters" by others
who ride, referring to the fact
that such behavior is not
typical of the majority of


bikers.
"The other 99 percent are in
a whole other category,"
Watterson said. "You let one
person mess up and it will be
all over the news. They will
never tell you abqut the 99
who didn't do anything bad.
You never hear the stories of
the poker runs that raise
$3,000 or $4,000 to help
someone."
There have been probably
1,000 poker runs and other
benefits in this area of the state
during the last year in which
bikers have contributed, Gibbs
said. For example, in February,
two poker runs were held to
benefit Diana and Richard
Murphy, two of the children
injured in the Jan. 25 accident
in Lake Butler, and two of the
families affected by that
accident. Those two runs
raised more than $4,000.
I Gibbs said more than 700
bikers gathered in Jacksonville
last year to participate in a run
to benefit the Autism Society
of America-an annual event
hosted by radio personalities
Lex and Terry' The run raised
$68,000.


"The bikers don't mind
helping," Gibbs said.
Watterson said a. biker will
never pass another biker who's
on the sideof the road. Danny
Pearson, a major with the
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office who is also a
motorcyclist, echoes that
sentiment.
"I've been broken down
cross country and never
worried about being stranded,"
Pearson said. "It seems like as
soon as you have a problem
and pull off onto the side of
the road, somebody stops and
offers a trailer, a wrench or
some assistance in getting you
back on the road."
"If someone knows of a
fellow biker in need, then
somebody's there to help,"
Watterson said. "It's like a
brotherhood or family."
Like Milner and Pearson
(see related story), Gibbs and
Watterson began riding
motorcycles at a young age.
Watterson said he began riding
at the age of 9, while Gibbs
said, "I've had dirt bikes and
stuff ever since I was big
enough to walk."


Enjoying the sights from their bikes


Area couples enjoy
hitting the highway
and experiencing life
on their Harleys
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph'Staff Writer
Some women may tolerate
their husband's hobbies and
interests, but Vickie Pearson
shares her husband's
passion-riding motorcycles.
Danny Pearson, a major with
the Bradford County Sheriff's
Office, has been riding
motorcycles since he was a
teenager. Now he's joined by
his wife, but she isn't just
along for the ride. She ceased
being a passenger on her
.husband's bike when she
bought her own six years ago.
"I will never go back to
riding behind anybody again."
she said.
The Pearsons are joinedi&6n',
their rides by other couples
from Bradford County,
including Bradford County
Sheriff Bob Milner and his
wife, Carol. Unlike Vickie
Pearson, Carol Milner has no
desire to own her own bike.
:She is content to ride as a
passenger on her husband's.
Carol said she began riding
with her husband because he
was going to go off on his bike
whether she went with him or
not, so she figured she might
'as well go with him. That
,doesn't mean, however, she
!.doesn't enjoy the rides. She,
like Vickie Pearson, loves the
sensation of riding. Proof of
that was an exhilarating ride
she and Bob took through the
Rocky Mountains that had
Carol exclaiming, "This is
awesome!"
"As a matter of fact, a
sheriff and his wife were
following us in their car,"
Carol said. "I kept saying,

The two men are both

interview with the Telegraph,
they found out they had
something else in common.
"My first bike was a 1974
Honda Trail Bike 90, and I've
still got it at home," Watterson
said.
"No way," Gibbs said.


"Mine was'a Trail 70."
Gibbs' wife, Terri (who is
also an organizer of Bike Fest),

Neither Carol nor Vickie
gave much thought to riding
motorcycles prior to meeting
their respective husbands. As
Vickie put it, "I had no idea I'd
ride cross country, or that I'd
ride as much as I do and enjoy
it as much as I do."
For their husbands, the
interest began in childhood.
Bob Milner said his riding
days began in ,1967 when he
was 14-after he got his
restricted license. A used
Honda, that he paid $75 for,
was his first bike, and he used


it to ride the 14 miles to and
from Leon High School in
Tallahassee. He also used the
bike for his afternoon paper
route.
It was simply a means of
transportation for Milner and a
way'for him to do a job. For
Danny Pearson, motorcycles
evoked his competitive spirit.
, Danny began riding at the
age of 13, riding around his
house and through the nearby
woods. He also began
competing in motocross
competitions throughout the
southeast.
He. continued to race


competitively after getting out
of the Army, where he served
as a motorcycle instructor for a
few year's. Danny .eventually
gave up competitive racing and
began riding streetbikes,
prompting him to say he
doesn't spend as much time in
the hospital now.

Berry practices

chiropractic art, civic duty


Wife, Carol, assists
as a freelance grant
writer

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
It's a hard prescription to
fill, but one local businessman
thinks he has just what the
doctor ordered.
Virgil Berry, owner of the
Back & Neck Pain Clinic,
pairs "modern methods with
old-fashioned concern."
This phrase is not only an
advertising slogan, but the way
Berry operates his practice
every day.
He said he does not like how
some doctors say. "my way is
the only way."
"There's a time and place
for each."
Chiropractic medicine is
"the science and art of things
natural in care," Berry said.
He attended school for six
years to learn this
combination, but he didn't stop
there.
One of his specialties is
disability evaluation, which he
had extensive training in.
Berry said his chiropractic
training and diagnosis is.
extensive because he deals
with muscle and skeletal
disorders, mainly back and
neck pain.
"If we maintain joints of the
body ... then we'll be
healthy," he said.
If a person's problem is not
something that he as a
chiropractor can fix, if it is
more internal, Berry said he is
"quick to refer" to another.
doctor.
Throughout his career, Berry
has helped people maintain
their muscle and skeletal
health by completing more
than-306 class hours in an
orthopaedic program, where he
has learned various techniques.
He said continuing with post
'graduate work is one of 'lis
hobbies. In fact, he said he has
taken almost as many post
graduate courses as he did for
his medical degree.
The walls of his clinic office
bear the evidence ..f these
courses with d,,zens,. ,:.r'
certificates from different
co-lle ges and training
programs.
A dfiplomate in forensics, an
occupational health consultant
and being certified by the
Independent Board of Medical
Examiners are only items on
his resume.


Dr. Virgil Berry attends to a patient who was
complaining of headaches. "If you've never
seen this done before," Berry said, "it can
look quite barbaric."


Among medical
certifications, a picture of
Berry meeting Paul Harvey
and a photo of the ship Elvis
Presley returned to the U.S. on
after his military service, was,
one certificate that might not
fit a typical description of a
chiropractor. This .was a
certificate from former Starke
Police Department Chief
Jimmy Epps.
This citizen award was
given to Berry in 1994 for his
bravery in helping his
neighbor, Wielhelmenia
Wainwright.
,Berry said his neighbor had
M' 6i9Pt hat as 6arli i;non
-he niiht ..f'Line 17 9?1 4. ,
:As, Berry was about to call
Wainwright about the noise,
but "the dog's, bark. was
different."
Berry didn't call. Instead, he
stepped out of his door where
he could see Wainwright in her
backyard-and a man


approaching her from down
the street.
The man jumped
Wainwright while she was at
her back door, and then Berry
jumped him trying to protect
his neighbor.
"I could feel him hitting
me," Berry said, "but he was
actually stabbing me."
Berry was stabbed six times,
and he said he had to miss a
week of work.
Giving credit to the police
department, he said, "I was
stabbed on Monday. He (the
attacker) was in jail by
Friday." .
Before crime fighting and
becoming a chiropract(or, Berr,
worked for 11 years ih the
pharmaceutical industry.
He promoted medicines to
private businesses as a field
representative.
Growing up, Berry said he

the audience to see that time is
passing. "Veteran" Hatchet
fans are now joined by those
who did not grow up listening
to the group.
"They're bringing their
children and sometimes
they're bringing their
grandchildren," Ingram said,
laughing.
Ingram is not an original
member of Molly Hatchet., but
he was no stranger to the
group. Ingram was responsible
for getting original vocalist
Danny Joe Brown his first
singing gig, then was part of
the Danny Joe Brown Band
when:- Brown. left Molly

time after the group's second

day, but she doesn't mind
being a passenger-at least on
the bike her husband owns
now.
"The first one (he had). I
didn't care to ride on because
it was a rough ride," she said.
If the ride's not rough,
traveling on a motorcycle can
be relaxing. Pearson said
riding provides stress relief,
while Milner said even if he's
caught in traffic, he is still
"totally relaxed" on his
motorcycle.
"You can have a stressful
day and be wound tight."
Watterson said. "When you get
.on that bike, 2 miles down the
road you don'! remember what


The band, which has had
numerous personnel changes,
is no longer made up of any
original members, though
Ingram has now been playing
with the group for
approximately 20 years.
Touring schedules led to the
departure of several members,
.while Brown's health
prohibited him from
continuing to tour and record
in the studio. Brown, who was
replaced by Phil McCormack
in the late 1990s, died March.
10, 2005, as the result of
kidne) failure. He had a
history of diabetes.
Molly. Hatchet's current
lineup consists of Ingram,
McCormack, John Galvin
(keyboards), Bryan Bassett
(lead guitar), Andy McKinney
(bass), and Mac Crawford
(drums), The group's last
album was "Warrior of the
Rainbow Bridge," released in
2005 ..

you did that day. It just.cleirs
the mind. It's good for the
soul." .. ..
James Gibbs said whenhe's
riding, he does not do a lot of
thinking. He said he just gets
lost in the moment. It's a
feeling of freedom, he said.
Pearson's wife, Vickie. who,
like her husband, owns a
Harley, said freedom is the key
word when it comes to trying
to describe to someone what
constitutes a "biker."
1, would just say it's
someone who enjoys freedom
because that's \\hat a
motorcycle is," she s.aid. "Most
people who ride enjoy the
freedom of being on the bike
and worrying about nothing
but the wind in their hair.
"There are all kinds of
reasons why people ride, but I
think most of it is just that they
enjoy the freedom of being out
there in the en\ ironment."


2It(H5, but Walker, Hargrett and
Barth, in keeping with Spires'
wishes, continued on with new
drummer Christoph Ullmnann,
who is from Austria. Ullmann
was eventually asked to join
the group permanently.
Blackfoot has a long history,
dating back to 1969. The band
released its first album, "No
'Reservations," in 1975 and is
knov) n for such songs as
"Trrin. Train," "Highway
Song," "Baby Blue" and "Left
Turn on a Red Light." The
group toured with such groups
as the Who, Deep Purple,
AC/DC and ZZ Top, while
also having such groups as Def
Leppard, the Scorpions and
Iron Maiden perform as
opening acts.

Virgil is from Arkansas.
"There was a time I boasted
about that," he said.
Carol is originally. from
Missouri, with stops in Illinois
and Tennessee.
She moved to Lake Butler
when she was in high school.
At one poin-t, she lived in
Chattanooga, Tenn.
"(Starke) is a mere dot


compared to that," she said,
but gave the more extensive
travel credit to her husband.
"He's the big city man," she
said.
Virgil has lived in Memphis,
Tenn. and St. Louis, among
other places.
Even though they have both
lived in much larger places,
Virgil said, "I think the
original appeal of Starke for
me was the small town


atmosphere like the town
where I was from."
Now, they both call Starke
home and said they do not plan
to move anywhere else.
Even though Virgil's son,
daughter and granddaughter
live in Missouri, his father and
Carol's mother are in Starke.
Carol, who is also the
mother of two sons, said,
"We're pretty: much locked
into this area, and we like it."

said.
For 32 years, she was a

Department of'Corrections.
"I retired from nursing and
became a housewife. The grani
writing is just to fill the time."
Grant writing-is a business
that can be done at home in
Carol's spare time. she said.
but it comes with a lot of
research about whatever
organization she is writing a
grant for. One grant can take
16 or more hours to write
Her recent grants hate been


with the Green Cove Springs
Library Merchant's
Association, the Fireman's
Museum in Providence, R.I.,
and the city of Hampton. As a
freelance grant writer, Carol is
paid a percentage of each grant
that is awarded.
On the Main Street Starke
Inc. design and planning
committee herself, Carol said,
"I could see this as a way to
facilitate things he (Virgil) has
been working on in the
community through grants."
With Main Street's Kim
Skidmore, Carol had the
opportunity to attend a class
offered by the University of
South Carolina.
Carol described the class as
a very intense three days, with
training from "sun up to sun

She is a member of the
Woman's Club of Starke, a

-The Berrys both said they
.participate in the community
because they enjoy it and feel
it is important.
Virgil said, "We want
people to want the changes
we're working on."
One upcoming event he is
looking forward to is the
Starke Bike Fest..
"The definition of a biker
has changed," he said,
expecting a large turnout.
He will be manning a food
booth for Main Street Starke

bratwurst, he said. '
"It'll be an interesting

The month of June has
arrived and with it comes
National Fishing Month.
Thi' 'is as good a time as any,
to take a kid fishing and
introduce him or her to the

,. l i f : . -
There "are several ways ,to
get a kid started in the
duitdc.ors. Some work out
great, % while others will ensure
that the child never goes


fishing again.
The first thing you have to
do is capture a kid's attention.
This doesn't mean take him or
her to Sampson Lake in the
middle of summer on a 100-
degree day, throwing a plastic
worm for four or five hours
without getting a bite. If my
daddy had done me like that,
I'd probably be playing a game
of badminton down at the Y
right now.
Like I said, there's a right
way and a wrong way to teach

kids to fish. You have to keep
their attention, and the
simplest way. is to make sure
they're getting bites and
catching fish. .
My dad took me to a pond
full of bream when I was a kid,
handed me a pole with a
bobber on it and put a little
bread ball on the hook. Every
time I tossed the line in, within
seconds the bobber went down
and I reared back and caught a
fish.
I'll never forget those times.
They were a lot of fun, and
that was the. beginning of a
love for the great outdoors.
I taught my daughters the
same way my daddy taught
me. The most important thing
is to do everything in your"
power to make sure they at,,
least catch a fish. There will be
plenty days ahead of tfierffor-'
coming home skunked.-"Dm'ton
let his or her first trip be one of
those. You can break the ids
into the real world of Ti-ng :
later on in life, but thei'f ftt ,.
few trips have to. be fu. anld
exciting.

One thing for sure is you
can't go wrong by taking akid
into the great outdoors-it'll
stay with them for the rest of,,
their lives. If you do your job,
right, your children will grofll..
up to teach their kids the same
thing you taught them. : ,
The fishing scene continues
to idle along. The summer?
tends to slow things down a
bit, and it's easier to slow
down when the temperature
reaches 100 degrees. '*
Bass continue to scibool in ,
area lakes. All our lakes have a
good population of shad.
Follow them and it won't be
long before you find the bass.
Bream fishing continues to
be strong. Bluegills and
shellcrackers continue to
spawn in area lakes.

(ov Terry's To tneodw!'Wti n
-rheld its classggt brot %Jt ,
..Lake Santa Fe on June 3.
Twenty boats qualified for
what turned out to be a great
day of fishing as 70 bass,
totaling 165 pounds, were
brought to the weigh-in (three
bass. weighed in at more than 6
pounds).
First place went to the team
of Charles Strickland arid.
Darrell Lyles with 'five fish
weighing 19.96 pounds. They
also landed the biggest bass of
the day-a 7.3-poundern .
Second place went -to
Richard and Glenn Barles
with five fish weighing 16.9
pounds, while Paul Akridge
and Clint Sheppard took third
with five fish weighing 16.57
pounds. 0

:SIGHTS
:Continued from p. 3C

"TI've had two concussions, a
fractured skull, a broken foot,
a dislocated collarbone-just a
number of injuries," he said of
his racing days.
Danny has owned several
types of bikes throughout his
life, but the bike he owns now-
is a Harley-Davidson Road
Glide. It's a comfortable bike
that is perfect for long trips, he
said.
"My dream bike is the one I
have right now," Danny said.
Bob Milner and Vickie
Pearson own Harleys, too.
Bob's is an Electra Glide,
while Vickie's is a Heritage
Softtail Classic. Vickie is on
her second Harley, having
previously owned a Super
Glide.
"My next bike will be a
-Deluxe," she said. "I signed up
for a raffle in Live Oak and
I'm really hoping to win that
bike."
Vickie owned'her own dirt
bike when. Danny was racing,
but she"I settled for being a
passenger.when Danny bought
his first street bike.
"Tha'twas'fine," she said. "I
just liked being out. It's such a
free feeling to be out on the
road on a motorcycle."
Vickie also said there's
nothing more,, relaxing than
being on the road, a feeling
shared by her; husband.
"That's.. mny stress release,"
Danny' said. "We all have to
have "a hobby, something we
enjoy doing other than work.
That's mine,".,.

Bob Milner said he gets a
feeling of relaxation, even in
traffic,. His wife obviously
finds riding'" to be relaxing as
well. Bob said if he and Carol
have been riding for 20 or 30
minutes, without talking, he'll
feel her helmet hit the-back of
his helmet if he has to stop
suddenly. .
"I know she's been sleeping
(when that happens)," Milner


said.
When Carol's not sleeping,
there are a lot of sights and
smells to take in when riding
on a motorcycle. Bob said it
makes for a nice change from
being cooped up in the office
or in an air-conditioned car.
As far as Dann,y is
concerned, taking a trip in a
car as opposed to a motorcycle
is like watching a program on
-television. ..
"If there's a temperature
change,. you feel it
immediately," Danny said. "If
it's raining, you feel that
immediately. If you go past
flowers, vegetables, chicken
farms or whatever, you smell
it. You experience more of the
terrain and the environment
than in a car."
Bob and Carol certainly
experienced the elements on a
trip they took to Fontana Dam,
N.C., in 1996. Along the way
they 'got pelted with heavy


rains and experienced a
temperature drop from the
mid-70s to the 40s with the
onset of a cold front. It was
lightly snowing when they
reached their destination.
The Milners and the other
couples they were traveling
with left Fontana Dam earlier
than they had planned because
the forecast was for continuing
snow. On their way back, they
.encountered .hail in Deal's
Gap.
"The men are just laughing,"
Bob said. "We can't believe
this fiasco. We've gone from
sun to rain to snow to hail in
two days."
That was Bob's most
memorable trip. The Pearsons'
most memorable trip had
nothing to do with the weather
and everything to do with
history: they participated in a
two-week ride along R'uute 66
from Chicago to Santa
Monica, Calif.

Harley-Davidsons with the mountains of Estes Park,
Colo., in the background.

Bob and
Carol Milner
are pictured
in Palm
Valley, Calif.
in January of
this year. The
couple flew
out there, so
Bob did not
ride his
Harley-
Davidson, but
he did rent a
Harley, which
provided
them with a
breathtaking
trip through
the Rockies.

"The only thing that
could've made Route 66 better
was if I had been on my own
bike," she said.
Another memorable ride she
and Danny took was a 9/11
commemorative ride in 2002,
Vickie said. She and Danny
were part of a group of 800-
1,600 people that rode to the
sites affected by the 2001
terrorist attacks. They rode
from Somerset, Pa., to
Washington, D.C., and then to
New York City.
"That was an awesome
ride," Vickie said.
A ride Danny said he would
love to make is one to Alaska.
"I just haven't decided how
I'm going to do that," he said.
"I want to travel from Seattle
to Alaska, through Canada.
Just.to experience that, I think,
would be great."
9 Vickie said any ride,
whether it has a scheduled
destination or not, is a good
one.
"The best motorcycle trip is
when you just get on/ and go
without any particular place to
go," she said. "All you worry
about is what neat road you're
going to find the next day."
Bob Milner said, "An adage
about motorcycling is, 'It's the
journey, not the destination.'"

Approximately 70 vendors
in all will be present, selling

of our thanksgiving.
