County's general fund increases by more than 7 percent


94th Year 19th Issue 50 CENTS


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On Aug. 3, Union County
commissioners received a
proposed budget. that shows
revenues to the county's
-general fund are up by more
than 7.5 percent over this year.
The budget, presented by
Finance Director Donna
Jackson, shows the county
bringing in more than $4.4


million dollars to the fund. In
the 2005-06 budget that figure
was $3.8 million. Budget
numbers indicate the increase
comes from two areas.
The first is an increase in ad
valorem taxes. According to
Property Appraiser Steve
Saunders the taxable value of
properties in the county is up
by more than $15 million from
2005. He said that translates
into a 7.8 percent increase.


Budget numbers show it to be
an additional $106,776 in
revenue for the 2006-07 fiscal
year.
The second increase is
courtesy of the Florida
Legislature. The House and
Senate approved a measure
which gave several counties in
the state more than $17 million
to help with budget shortfalls.
Known as the Fiscally
Constrained County Act, it


provided Union County with
$804,441.
Though both increases total
more than $900,000, the
general fund only shows an
increase of- $645,735.
According to Jackson, this is
due to one-time funding the
county received this year.
"This year's recreational
complex grants really falsely
inflated the numbers," Jackson
said.


She is referring to two grants
the county received this year
from the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program. Each $200,000 grant
is money the county is using to
make improvements at the O.J.
Phillips Recreational Complex.
In April, a portion of the
money was approved to be
used for a new lighting system
at the facility.
Next year's numbers also


show a loss of $48,000 -in
administrative fees. This year
the board charged each
department $8,000 to pay for
the costs of doing the payroll
and paperwork for each. Next
year that fee is not included.
Jackson said this fee only
shows up when the county is
having trouble making ends

General

fund pays

for variety

of services


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The general fund is used to
pay for more than just the
county commission and the
county's five constitutional
officers.
The revenue is used for a
variety of reasons and the
largest is titled other payments
and general services. Of this
portion of revenue, the largest
will go into paying back the
$1.4 million the county had to
borrow in 2004 to balance the
budget. Payments by solid
waste, emergency medical
services and the general fund
itself will help pay down
$326,758 of the debt.
It was first thought when the
county received $804,000 from
the state in the Fiscaly
Constraitnhed Counties Act, it
could use some of this new
revenue to pay the debt.
During the budget presentation
Finance Director Donna
Jackson told the board she
was not sure if that the money
could be used in that manner.
"It is unclear to us right now
if that money could be used to
pay down debt," Jackson said.
"Right now we are not
budgeting any of this moneN to
do so until we find otherwk ise."
The second largest portion of
this area of the budget is a
transfer to a special capital'
account." According to
Chairman Wayne Smith, this
money % ill be used to help the
county get off on the right foot
arext fiscal year.
"We need this money, along
with the contingency already
in place, to begin the fiscal
year on Oct. 1," Smith said.
Another portion of this area
has been set aside to put a new
roof of the Union County
Health Department. It is
estimated it will cost $20,000
to replace the roof on the
building now. The board has
also set aside $10,000 for the
recreation board to support the
Pop Warner and Babe Ruth
leagues.
The Acorn Clinic, which is a
free clinic that serves residents
from Union and Bradford
County, will get the same
$10,000 it did last year. This
item also includes:
o Membership 'in the North
Central Florida Regional
Planning Council, $3,000.
o Membership in the Florida
Association of Counties,
$1,904.
O Membership in the Small
County Coalition, $3,255.
: Services from the Florida
Division. of Forestry, $6,572.
Payment to A and A
Transport, $8,254.
o Payment to the Well
Florida Council, $1,063.
The second largest area of
the general fund, outside the
board- and constitutional
officers, is the county's welfare'
program. This section of the
general fund is slated to pay
o.ut $280,000 in Medicaid
payments for county residents.
Smith said this was one area of
the budget the county truly had

RD and

SW show

increases

BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The Union County road ,
department will see a 5 percent
overall increase in its budget
for the 2006-07 fiscal year.
Known as the
Transportation Trust Fund, the
total estimated revenue for the
department is $1.25 million.
That is a $43,609 increase over
the past fiscal year. Most of
that increase comes in the form
of transfers from other
departments. One line item
entitled miscellaneous income
(from emergency medical
services, solid waste, the New
River Solid Waste Association
and culvert fees) will bring the
department $65,000 this year.
Last year that figure was
$39,000.
Most of the department's
revenue comes from fuel tax.
The largest portion, $289,574,
comes from a 5-cent state gas
tax. The next largest,
,$270,658, comes from a,
constitutional fuel tax..Another
$153,127 comes from a 7-cent
county fuel tax.
A 5-cent local option gas tax
and 9-cent gas tax also
generate revenue for this
-budget. Most of the revenue,
$289,574, is transferred to the
Transportation Trust Fund.
The remaining $127,140 will
be used to pay off loan
payments,that have been used
for resurfacing work, The total <
is $23,000 less than last year
due to a smaller carryover of..;:
funds.
The county has several ways
it uses these revenues. The
first, and largest, is paying the
employees of the department.
More than a quarter of the total -
budget goes to pay the salaries
of the workers. Another 8
percent helps pay for payroll
taxes, retirement contributions
and health insurance. Road
department Superintendent
Shelton Arnold is also part of
the salary picture. His $39,576
salary adds to the expense.
The second largest expense
is to keep gas, oil and
lubricants in the many pieces
of equipment the department
uses. To help this effort,
$115,000 has been budgeted.
The third largest expense is
divided among county
commissioners.
Each commissioner has
$16,344 set aside for road
material and supplies in their
district. Combined, the group
has $81,670 to work on the
roads of the county. Repair and
maintenance of the equipment
uses another $54,000.
During the presentation of
the budget, Commissioner
Ricky Jenkins told his fellow
commissioners something had
to be done to replace a dump
truck.
"We have three trucks and
one that needs a motor,"
Jenkins said. "We need to do
something before hurricane;
season really hits us and
.another truck goes down."
Smith told Jenkins that even
with the new $800,000 the

meet.
"This year was the first time
this was charged to each
department in several years,"
Jackson said. "Because of our
new windfall from the state,
we were able to take it out of
next year's budget."
As with many counties
budgets, salaries are were a
majority of the revenue is
used. It is the largest expense
the board has in it's own
budget. The $129,165 will be
used to give commissioners a 3
percent raise over last year. In
terms of actual earnings, each
commissioner will see
approximately an extra $100
each month.
According to the budget,
three of the five,
commissioners also use the
county's health insurance. At
$350 per month, this expense
costs taxpayers $12,600 per
year. Retirement contributions
and payroll taxes for
commissioners is an additional
$34,811 per year.
The second largest area of
commission expenses is one
that was almost nonexistent
this year. The budget calls for
$103,183 for contingencies.
This year that figure was
$10,392. Chairman Wayne
Smith told commissioners in
the July regular meeting that
money needed to be in place to
help get the county started on
the next fiscal year,
Another large portion of
expense from the
commission's budget is health
insurance for the sheriff's
office. Jackson said to help
simplify the process of the
department using the
insurance, the expense is taken
,directly from the board's
portion of the budget. At
$63,000, it's the third largest
amount in commission
expenses.
Jackson did point out to
commissioners that health
insurance costs were only
estimated for the moment.
"We are still negotiating
what it will cost us next year
for health insurance," Smith
said. "It is slated to increase,
but by how much is unclear at
this point."
This issue could become a
bigger figure of the budget
because the sheriffs office and
the commission are not the
only two places the
commission's budget pays for
health care. The health care
'costs of the county's extension
agent, custodian for the
courthouse and secretary to the
board all come from this area.

Sheriffs department
has largest portion
of budget
Using more than $1.4
million of next year's revenue,
the Union County Sheriff's
Office has the largest budget of
y anfy area. More than 75 percent
of that is used to pay personnel
of the department. This
includes Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead's salary of
$101,345. According to his
budget, $294,040 will be used
as operating expenses.
Contingencies, capital outlay
and city of Lake Butler
enforcement round out the
expenses shown.
Whitehead said he's really'
not sure if residents realize
why his department has the
largest share of the budget.
"Your getting more than just
the deputies that patrol the
streets," Whitehead said. "That
$1.4 million also runs the jail
and makes sure we have
bailiffs for the court. It's one of
the smallest budgets any
sheriff who performs those
three functions has."

Tax collector has
second largest salary
While the sheriff has .the
largest salary of any of the
county's constitutional officers,
Tax Collector Pats. Elixsoni is
not far behind. At $90,529, she
is tied with Property Appraiser
Steve Saunders for the second
highest salary of the five
officials. Her and Saunders"
retirement contributions 'and


Property appraiser's
budget up by 10
percent
Saunder's budget shows a 10
percent increase over last
year's figures. While it shows
no increase in his salary, other
areas helped drive up
expenses. The largest of these
is an increase in capital outlay.
The .budget shows that
Saunders plans to use $17,000
in this area.
A $4,000 increase in
salaries, a $3,000 increase irin
retirement contributions and a
$4,000 increase in health
insurance are where some of
the other increases are shown.
The increase in health
insurance is a 100 percent
increase over this year.


Supervisor of
elections' budget up
across the board
All eight areas of Supervisor
of Elections Barbara "Babs"
Montpetit budget have
increased next fiscal year. The
most notable is an increase in
the salary of her department's
employees. Regular salaries
and wages for the department
will cost taxpayers $57,602.
This is an increase of $13,312
over last year. Montpetit's
salary of $77,677 is a 4 percent
increase versus last year.
Her total budget is an
increase of just over 11
percent. A third of that can be
found in wages that will be
paid to poll workers during this
election cycle. Increases in
retirement contributions,
operating expenses and payroll
taxes are shown to be the other
factors.

Clerk of courts
salary unclear
The Budget for Clerk of


Courts Regina Parrish does not
show how much the
constitutional officer is
compensated. Since the
enactment of Article V, most
of the revenue that comes to
Parrish's department is from
those who use the court
system. The only thing her
portion of the budget shows is
what the county expects to pay
out.
Of the $108,000 shown for
the office, $65,175 will be
used to pay the employees.
Operating expenses, at
$26,215, is the second largest
expense. Payroll taxes,
retirement contributions, health
insurance and worker's
compensation insurance use
the remaining money.

Recycling program will WS meets first
Tuesday of
be cut by NRSWA month


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
According to the New River
Solid Waste Association,
there's a myth that recycling is
profitable for the landfill.
In fact, while the budget for
collecting and processing
recyclables is nearly $700,000,
recycling revenue only earns
the landfill around $85,000
annually. Other waste disposal
revenue subsidizes the
-recycling budget.
Landfill staff drafted, and
the board has approved, cuts in
the recycling program that will
save more than $211,000 over
the coming fiscal year.
Recycling will be
discontinued altogether at the
following county waste
collection centers:
In Bradford County:
Lawtey, Sampson Lake and
Brooker.
In Union County: Palestine
and Worthington Springs.
In Baker County: Olustee,
Sanderson, Cuyler and Baxter.
Although those who are
enthusiastic about recycling
will be encouraged to travel to
centers where recyclables are
still being collected, volume is
expected to drop off
somewhat.
At the remaining county
collection sites, recycling of
glass and steel cans will be
discontinued. Total loss in
revenue to the landfill for
eliminating glass and steel
recycling is just $2,225.


All of the recycling igloos
will be replaced with 6-cubic-
yard containers, and the
landfill will purchase a front
loader truck, allowing
collection to be done by a
single employee.
The reduction in miles
traveled and the decision not to
fill two vacant positions are
where the primary savings to
the landfill will take place. The
board will also surplus three
unneeded garbage trucks and
rent some of its new containers
for commercial cardboard
recycling for $20 a month per
unit.
Notice will be given at the
collection sites. The board has
authorized the change to take
place by Oct. 1.
Tire collection
day set
The association still doesn't
have a tire disposal contract
signed, meaning it can't store
waste tires on site. It will,
however, hold a tire disposal
event at the landfill.
"Tires will be loaded directly
onto a trailer, and then hauled
away for disposal.
The collection day has been
set for Wednesday, Aug. 23.
Disposal rates vary. For single.
tires, rates go from $1 to $15
(small trailer tire to truck tire
with rim).
By the ton, passenger tires
from Bradford are $146.12 a
ton and truck tires are $171.12
a ton. From Union County,
passenger tires are $132 a ton
and truck tires are $157 a ton.

payroll taxes total another
$22,000 per year each.
This year the county moved
the tax collector's office into
being a fee-based entity. The
office now must work on the
fees it generates. According to
the budget, collecting ad
valorem taxes will be the
largest revenue generator for
the office. The budget shows
more than $83,000 to be taken
in by the collections. Jackson
said this is the area the office
will pay its employees from.
The complete budget for the
office stands at just over
$196,000.

hard in school and earned good
grades. The typewriter was the
aspiration of every top student
in Italy.
Though he had a large house

to live in and plenty of food on
the table, his parents never
seemed to have enough left
over to by him the typewriter
that was his heart's desire.
His teacher at the time found
* out about his desire and his
parents dilemma. Knowing he
deserved the typewriter, she
went to a local businessman,
who was a member of a
service club in Italy known as
The Knights of the Round
Table. According to Salvador
the group is similar to the
Rotary Club.
The teacher relayed the story
to the man, and he went out
and bought the best Smith
Corona typewriter the
company had. to offer. He
brought it to Salvador's house
and introduced himself.
"He told me, 'I know you're
a good student and you w6rk
hard in school. This is for
you,'" Salvador said.
The man presented the
typewriter to Salvador and left
him with these words: May
God bless you in anything you
do in the future.
"I have never forgotten that
day and the joy that gift gave
to me," Salvador said. "I hope I


can bring the same joy to six
Union County kids."
He then explained that once
he had decided to go forward
with this project, he contacted
a few of his friends in the
Rotary Club. He started with
Tim Geibieg of Custom
Computer Services. He and
Geibieg struck a deal for
Geibieg to put the computer
systems together for him.
He then approached
Superintendent of Schools
Carlton Faulk. He asked Faulk
to find six students who
worked hard, but had parents
like his and could not afford to
buy them a computer at this
time.
"I can find no better time,
city, county, friends or place in
which to make this
presentation," Salvador said. "I
say to you children, may God
bless you in anything you do in
the future."
At the end of the ceremony,
Geibieg announced he had one
more surprise in store for the
kids.
"If each one of you will bring
your systems by the store, I'll
install a DVD burner' at no
additional charge," Geibieg
said.
Faulk said Salvador's project
came as quite a surprise to
him.


"It's not everyday you have
someone come to you and say
they want to help our kids in
this manner." Faulk said. "I
appreciate what Paolo has
done here today, but it is not
the first of his good works in
this community."

Each school board must establish a comprehensive program for student progression which shall be
based upon an evaluation of each student in a curriculum which covers the Sunshine State Standards
and Grade Level Expectations and complies with state law.

The School Board of Union County has established a Student Progression Plan in
accordance with section 1008.25 F.S. Student progression is based on evaluation of
each student's achievement on established Sunshine-State Standards provided by
the state. Students who are achieving below district or state standards in writing, reading
mathematics, and/or science will be identified and given remedial instruction as needed.
Third grade students who scored Level 1lin Reading on the Grade 3 FCAT will be retained
unless they meet one of the six good cause exemptions. Of the 18 third graders who scored
Level 1 in Reading, ten attended the summer reading camp and ten were retained. The

Landfill counties ready to fight


for waste stream


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Fearing the disposal rate
could be endangered by the
opening of one or more
privately owned regional
landfills, the New River Solid
Waste Association has agreed
to act to secure the waste
stream coming to the tri-
county facility.
To do this, the board is
hiring Tallahassee attorney
David Dee, said to be one of
the most qualified attorneys in
Florida dealing with solid
waste issues.
In particular, there is worry
over a Georgia county selling
its landfill to Waste
Management, which plans to
use it as a regional disposal
site for waste from both
Florida and Georgia.
There is a similar threat to
the east, where. Putnam County
is in negotiations with Waste
Management.
Without agreements with the
cities and counties now served
by New River Regional
Landfill directing that all
commercial waste be disposed
of there, they could be enticed
to take their waste to a private
facility offering lower disposal
rates, or tipping fees.
The landfill took a $1
million hit when commercial
waste from Alachua County
was diverted from New River.
Unable so far to make up for
the loss, management was
forced to dip into reserves to
cover operational costs. .
If even more waste is lost,
tipping fees could be driven up
from $24 a ton.
Alachua County, which is
still experiencing shortfall in
the transfer facility it
constructed, is also taking
action.
Since a 1994 U.S. Supreme
Court decision on flow control,
Dee said there have been
hundreds of lawsuits that make
flow control a volatile issue.
Solid advice can be difficult to
give with confidence, he said,
but he did tell the association
that the easy options aren't
defendable in court. Tough
decisions that are defendable
are t6ugh' because they, can.be
politically unpopular,- ,',,
Options include the wait-
and-see approach or attracting


new customers by slashing nme
landfill's tipping fee. To do so,
the landfill would. have to cut
staff, overhead and programs
to the bone, eliminate
dividends paid to member
counties, including Union
County's host fee, and use fees
to .pay for disposal operations
only. Money to fund other
areas would have to come
from county general funds,
higher taxes or raising special
assessment rates, something no
member county has done since
special assessments were
imposed.
The landfill could get into
the hauling business, adding
trucks and staff and


contracting with counties to,
collect and dispose of the,
waste at New .River. This'
would require prohibiting.:
private companies froi'.
collecting garbage ini
unincorporated areas.
Alternatively, the counties.
could grant exclusive contracts',
to one or more private hauleirs.
to collect commercial waste.,.'
stipulating where the waste.,
must be delivered. This could '
drive others out of business.
The counties could amendi-
and enforce local ordinance to.,,
require disposal at New River'
Regional Landfill. Legally'

county had acquired, there was
no way to fix or replace the
truck. Jenkins asked that a
workshop be held to see where
money could be pulled from to
address the situation.
Vehicle repair and
nmintenance is one issue
addressed in the budget. There
is $54,000 set aside to fix the
department's vehicles.
According to Smith, this
amount will not cover fixing
the dump truck that is down.
The department also has
$20,898 for new machinery
arind equipment.
Equipment payments are also
another large expense for the
department. The budget shows
$56,099 set aside to make loan
payments on previously
tt.rchased items. Other
expenses include:
Communications, $3,500.
o Utilities, $4,000.
Vehicle insurance, $19,000.
0 Road materials and
"supplies, $13,000.
STools, $21,000.
o Office supplies, $2,000.
The solid waste department
shows an 8-percent increase
over its budget from this time
last year. Most of that increase,
90 percent, is thanks to a cash
carryover of $70,000 more
than this time last year. The
largest revenue generator
comes from the citizens. This
year the county estimates it-
will collect $277,635 in special
assessment fees for solid
waste. This is only a slight
increase over last year's
collections.
The second largest revenue
sources is NRSWA. The
county receives $275,000 for
having the landfill in the
county. A small county grant
accounts for $191,531. All
total, the department looks to
collect $958,104 during the
fiscal year.
The solid waste department,
like every other county
:department, uses a large
portion of its budget to pay
employees. Salaries, on-call
'pay, payroll taxes, retirement
contributions, health insurance
And worker's compensation
total more than $360,000 of
the total budget.
-t4ipping".fees to NRSWA is
'the etIrin largest of the
budget. At $225,000, the
-county uses a substantial
amount of the budget to dump
trash into the landfill. Another
$122,696 is transferred to EMS
to help with its finances. The
transfer takes place because of
S the host fee paid to the county
by NRSWA,
Repair and maintenance of
vehicles will. cost tax payers
$40,000. Loan payments of
$45,250 will take part of the
department's revenue. Gas, oil
and lubricants are estimated at
$38,000.
Other expenses include:
O Communications, $6,500.
0-Utilities, $4,500.
O Vehicle insurance, $7,000.
Tools, $18,000.
SNew equipment, 18,000.

however, this would only
prevent waste from being
disposed of elsewhere in
Florida. They can't regulate
waste if it is going to be
disposed of out of state.
Along with cleaning up
existing or passing new
ordinances, the board was told
that each county should pursue
interlocal agreements with
their municipalities asking
them to deliver all solid waste
to New River.
New River may also
continue to pursue solid waste
from out-of-county areas. The
landfill already has agreements
with Alachua and Levy
counties.
A final option is to follow
the lead of other public
facilities and sell the landfill.
NRSWA plans to join with
another publicly owned
landfill, Aucilla, to cover legal
costs and costs associated with
a waste generation study.

problems with.
"'We can't control the costs
because we never know what
they will be," Smith said. "The
state approves the program
recipients and then sends us
the bill."
Jackson said due to this
uncertainty, it has always been
difficult to know how much
the county needed for this area.
"Medical costs are constantly
on the rise," Jackson said.
"Between that and not
knowing how many people are
actually using the system, it's
difficult to know just how
much to budget for."
Smith has lobbied legislators
to put a cap on these costs each
year Legislative Day is held in
the county. Each time he is
told that his concerns are
noted, but the program has yet
to change.
The general fund is also
responsible to pay for the costs
of operating the courthouse.
More than half of the $124,320
budget is usedto-pay-the-utility----
--ills. Jackson has estimated
that $70,000 will go to pay for
electricity and water. That
issue brought up a lot of
controversy during last year's
budget workshop.
., Several commissioners
questioned why the utility bills
were so high when it was
estimated the county would
spend $60,000 for utilities.
Smith told his fellow
commissioners that utility
costs had risen because fuel
prices were going up and the
energy company was charging ,
more for its services. Jackson
said the $10,000 increase is in
response to the rise in today's
gas prices.
The county's dispatch center
is another large -area --of- thi--
general fund. More than 95
percent of the areas revenue is
used to pay the salary, payroll
taxes, retirement and health
insurance of the employees
that man the center. The
remaining $3,000 goes to
utilities. According to Jackson
this amount is only 66 percent
of the center's total operating
budget.
The Union County Volunteer
Fire Department uses $80,198
of the general fgnd. The largest
expense of the department is a
secretary. Though this
secretary works primarily for
the emergency medical
services department, her salary
comes from the fire
department.
"This individual was being
paid out of the general fund, so
it was decided since the fire
department budget comes form
the same place, to consolidate
the position into the
department's budget," Jackson
said. "It simplified things in
many ways.
The secretary's wages,
payroll taxes, retirement-and
insurance total more than
$30,000 of the department's
$80,198 total budget.
Maintenance and repair and
perating---experrnses use
$11,000 each. Gas, oil and
lubricants use another $7,000.
IJnsurance for the trucks uses
$2,800. The county has also
allowed $12,000 for new
equipment and replacement
items. '
Another expense that comes
out of the fire department
budget is the $7,000 the county
has agreed to pay the town of
Worthington Springs for
mutual-aid with fires outside
town limits. The expense was
agreed to when both sides
hammered out an interlocal
agreement last year. Jackson
said the amount is taken out of
this area for convenience
purposes as well.

Two Camp Blanding lakes


now open for fishermen


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
Having been closed since
Sept. 11, 2001, two lakes at
Camp Blanding are open to the
public for fishing.
Magnolia and Lowry lakes
were reopened on July 28,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission.
The lakes ate now open
from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on
Friday and Saturdays. Day
-hunting is allowed and a check
station is also open.
"The Florida National Guard
and Florida DepartInent--of
Military Affairs are pleased to
reopen the lakes as an added
service to our responsible


Florida citizens," said Maj.
Gen. Douglas Burnett, adjutant
general of Florida.
"Many of them have fished
these lakes for years, and we
disliked not being able to
provide this privilege after
Sept. 11 Now, we can .restore
some of these opportunities."
Anglers have to check in and
out of the Treat Road gate
check station off S.R. 21 near
Keystone Heights, said Jerry
Kr,ummrich,, FWC regional
freshwater fish biologist.
"Because of military security,
we must monitor access to the
post."
He also said the public
should strictly follow the 1 30


p.m. closure time. Anglers
must take trash out from the
lake areas because trash cans
are not available..
If these guidelines are
followed, Krummrich said the
privilege of lake access may be
a long-term option.
Military -training still could
occur on some weekends,"so'if
necessary, the areas would be
closed.
Members of the pubic
wanting to use the area should
call Blanding's lake
information line at (904) 682-
3318 for recorded updates
about possible closures, or the
Lake City FWC office at (386)
758-0525.

Tax roll data shows more growth for Bradford County


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Bradford County
Property Appraiser's office
began mailing out proposed
tax (TRIM) notices Tuesday.
Property Appraiser Jimmy
Alvarez said they should be
arriving in homes by the end of
the week. If a person does not
receive a notice by Tuesday,
Aug. 22, they should contact
Alvarez's office.
TRIM notices will give all
property owners information,
such as the value of taxes for
last year compared with the
current property value, eligible
. exemptions, proposed taxes to
be levied and the latest date
someone can appeal to the
Value Adjustment Board.
Alvarez said the tax roll data
for 2006 showed $803,935,449
in taxable value. This is up
from 2005's $677,143,547.
From 2005-2006, there was
approximately an 18.72
percent total increase in
taxable value in the county
after all exemptions.
There were 6,212 homestead
exemptions, up only by 58
parcels from last year.
Before exemptions this year,
there was an actual value of


$2,004,736,002 (in 2005, the
value was $1,444,403,876).
"We've .seen .a lot" of
growth," Alvarez said.
A lot of this has to do with
the escalation of property
values. Raw land prices have
tripled and quadrupled in some
cases, he said
He said appraisers all over
the state are seeing these
increases, but it is not known
what is directly causing them.
Low interest rates could be
one contributing factor, but
Alvarez said some investors in
the stock market are not seeing
a lot of returns. Investors then
turn to buying property.
"A lot of people see real
estate as a pretty stable
investment," he said.
Another factor is
construction costs, which have
really increased throughout the
last few years. Alvarez said
property prices have reflected
that.
"We're having good growth
on commercial and residential
sides," he said.
Overall, there was more
growth on the residential side
compared to commercial
properties.
However, there have been


large commercial
developments, such as Wal-
Mart SuperCehter, that will
continue to bring in more
commercial properties.
"We look for 301, primarily
south, to be our primary
growth sector," Alvarez said.
While it has been slow in the
county, he said, "The growth
will come."
To see a breakdown of
proposed tax rates by area and
taxing authority, charts are
available on the appraiser's
We b site ,
www.bradfordappraiser.com,
by clicking on "Tax Rates."
These rates will not be final
until late September after all
the taxing authorities (school
board, county commissioners,
water management district,
etc.) finalize their rates
through two public hearings on
each agency's budget.

The man behind
the tax roll data
"No one likes taxes. Not
even me."
This statement made by
Bradford County Property
Appraiser Jimmy Alvarez
summed up his feelings about


taxes, but it never has hindered
him from doing his job.
"I just do my job and try to
treat people fair," he said. "We
do all we can to serve the
public. That's why we're
here."
Alvarez said when the
people feel like they are being
treated fairly and given an
accurate property value, they
are willing to work with him.
I't"s worked out real well
for me," he said.
Elected to office in January
1977 while he was still
attending the University of
Florida, Alvarez almost.turned
down the opportunity to run
for property appraiser.
Growing up west of Starke
on Brownlee Road, Alvarez
was active in the Future
Farmers of America
organization.
In 1971, he was the state
FFA president. In 1973, he
was a national FFA officer.
"It opened up opportunities
for me to travel."
Both of these positions
allowed him to have
experiences outside of
Bradford County and even
Florida.
It was during these travels
that he, met a businessman.
Later, the man started working
in Calhoun County and offered
Alvarez a job.
"I thought seriously about
going out there," he said. "You
never know you're doing the
right thing until you've already
done it."
At the same time, Alvarez
was still attending UF and had
many people from his home
county tell him he should run:
for property appraiser.
Prior to the election, in 1976,
"I didn't have any property or
real estate background," he
said.
Not knowing whether he
was doing the right thing, he
turned down the job in west
Florida and ran for property
appraiser. He has now been the
appraiser for almost 30 years:
Alvarez estimated he was
only around 20 credits shy of
getting his degree, but never


finished up at UF. While there,
though, he took real estate
classes.
As property appraiser, he
also took certification courses
for his position. He is certified
by the International
Association of Assessing
Officers, where he gets 24
hours of continuing education
every year to maintain the
certification.
Alvarez has taken part in
professional organizations, like
the Property Appraisers
Association. He was the state
president in 1986 when it was
made up of all of the counties.
He was the legislative
chairman for this group for a
couple of years. This allowed
him to track bills in legislation
that would affect anything he
did as a property appraiser.
"I've been pretty active in
the association," he said.
It may go against reason, but
Alvarez said having the same


Jimmy Alvarez


job for three decades has
allowed him to witness a lot of
change.
One aspect he. is most proud
of is the appraiser's Web site.

The P-40s arrive at Venice
A series on World War II


In the first several months of the
war, it appeared the Japanese Zero-
fightet ptane hacrno peers. In all areas
of the Pacific Basin, the Zero had won
air superiority over the best planes the
Allied Forces could muster. It would
be many months before the United
States could get its hands on one for
testing.
Finally, one was found upside down
in the Aleutian Islands (with the pilot
hanging in his safety harness)
essentially intact. It was shipped to
the United States, rebuilt, flown and
critiqued. Its strengths and
weaknesses were found and
exploited, and American pilots could
now turn the tide with knowledge
gleaned from the one plane.
It had no armor or protection for the
pilot, and no self-sealing gas tanks.,
Although it turned a tighter circle than
allied fighters, at high altitudes and
high speed it became clumsy and
allied pilots could whip the Zero by
flying smarter. The' Zero's lack of
ability in high-speed dives was its
undoing and sealed its fate.
Allied pilots learned to refrain from
attacking from below or at low
altitudes, where the Zero excelled, but
rather the Allies began flying at
higher altitudes and attacked in a dive
from above, letting their diving speed
carry them through the Japanese
formations and regain the altitude-
inecessary-to repeat-the maneuver. The
new procedure was effective in
destroying the myth of the Zero's
invincibility and foreshadowed the
beginning of the end in air warfare in
the Pacific.
SThef ,"Jafps never" improved on
the Zero, nor did they produce other
fighters during the war, and. fell
behind in research and development.
as the Zero became outdated.
In the surprise raid on-earl Harbor,.
the Japanese used carrier-based'
Zeros, dive-bombers and torpedo
bombers with devastating results.
Only four P-40s rose to challenge the
enemy, and two of them were shot
down immediately.,
Meanwhile, on the other side of the
world, at Venice, Fla., the Bell P-39s
were phased out, and replaced with P-
40s, termed the "Curtis Warhawk." It
became the Allies workhorse for the
next two years.
Mated with an Allison V-1710
'engine, it maxed out at 362 mph and
proved to be heavier, faster and
sturdier than the Zero. It outgunned
the Zero with six 50-caliber machine
guns. It could fight the Zero on its on
terms, at lower altitudes. With its
superior speed, Allied pilots had an
advantage; they could break, off a.
fight aind go home anytime, because
they could outrun the Zero. The
Japanese could never break off, since
the P-40 could chase them down.
Around 13,800 P-40s were built. The
"Flying Tigers" were the first to paint
the shark's head on the fuselage of the
P-40, which became its symbol
around the world.
Unfortunately, the P-40s would also
fall out of the sky on occasion, flown


Thanks to
supporters of
summer
programs
Dear Editor:
This letter is being written
in order to publicly-thank-the
many supporters of the Union
County Public Library summer
events. There, were eight
weekly programs that ran from
'June I until July 27. These
programs were highly attended
with an average of over 200 per
program and provided lots of
fun, educational opportunities
for the children in our area.


by novice pilots in training and the
photo lab crew continued to go out on
crashes to record whatever could be
found. Florida had air bases in almost
every hamlet and town in the state,
and required the photographing of
downed planes.
Photographers also took pictures for
graduating classes for hometown
publishing, along with pictures of
promotions and, on occasion, pictures
of pilots and planes. Because of the
number of lakes and streams in
Florida, locally based planes had to
routinely carry life preservers and
other water-safety equipment not
required in other areas of the country.
One evening in late summer a lone
B-26 from Mac Dill Field came up
from the south, following U.S. 41
apparently, reached Venice, turned
left above the wide avenue running
from the highway to the Gulf, about
the length of an air strip, and flew into
the Gulf. Troops were called out to
search the terrain and crash boats
searched the waters off the beach, but
nothing was found for several hours.
Eventually the nose wheel was found
in the shallow water, which led to the
finding of the fuselage and body
parts.
Photographers went out the next
morning to see medics recovering
body parts and putting them in body
bags. The number of bags equaled the
number of men on the plane, but there
was no way to tell whose parts were
in which bag. Caskets were shipped
home with instructions not to open
them.
1942 was coming toa lose, a
rouffifne'ear'Tbr the permanent base
personnel, who"had'seen an unknown
number of men pass through the gates
of VAAB and ship out to the four
comers of the world. We became
friends with many whose destinations
we never knew. Did he survive the
war, and if so, where did he establish
a home? We maintained contact with
a few, but as the years slipped away,
the letters and phone calls became
fewer, and in time, ceased altogether.
Having been promoted to corporal
in the late summer of 1942, I am now
a. full-fledged GI, at home wherever
rtiy orders take me, but the luck of the
draw left me in Venice for several
more months as the department's
sergeants 'transferred out to overseas
bases and assignments.
Earlier this year (1942) my younger
brother (Jack Rahn) graduated from
high school at age 17, and badgered,
our mother until she signed for him to
get into the Navy. He became a
gunner on a PBY, sometimes called a
flying goose" (a sea plane) in the
China Sea. When they saw a flight of
Zeros, they dropped* down to sea
level, because the Zero didn't dive
well, and couldn't pull out if the target
was on or near the water. He survived
the war, but he had seen it close up.
Next time, the P-47 is assigned to
Venice.

Telegraph Editorialist"


First of all, we, would like to
thank the parents, grandparents,

are now gearing up for our
preschool programs that
resume on Wednesday, Sept.
113.
We must thank the Union
County School Board and
CarltQn Faulk for allowing us

little ones to the programs.
Also, we appreciate the LBES
cafeteria staff for providing

the programs.
Thank you to the wonderful
people of Union County whose
help made it possible for the
library to provide quality
programming with minimum-
cost.
The following people
donated everything from
animals and corrals to vehicles
and equipment, as well as their
time and'talent. Your help is
greatly appreciated and will

Rod Smith for governor-


Democrat Rod Smith is
the only candidate* in the
race for governor that is
from North Florida.
Smith has eaten from the
buffet at Western Steer with
the Starke Kiwanis Club.
He has eaten at Rhodes *-
Barbecue with the Lake
Butler Rotary Club. He's
been to the fair and to the "-4
Strawberry Festival. He has "
sat in both the Union and
Bradford County
_courthojsc&--- 40-- --- both-t
prosecute criminal cases
and to listen to the concerns
of local citizens. He has A
probably shaken your hand
at some point during the last
14 years of campaigning.
He knows us.
Smith has a reputation for
getting things done. As the
Florida senator who
represented people in
Bradford, Union, Alachua, Rod S
Gilchrist, Columbia, Rod
Putnam, Marion and Levy counties, he
successfully led efforts to pass legislation
in a wide variety of areas. Thanks to those
efforts, programs were strengthened that
were designed to help abused children,
fight discrimination in housing, protect the
privacy of crime victims, improve Florida's
crime prevention initiatives, protect a
woman's right to choose and reinforce
homeland security.
Just last year he also managed to secure
additional funding for courthouse
renovations and construction in small
counties.
The largest newspaper in South Florida,
The Miami Herald, recognized Smith, a
North Florida senator, as the most effective
Democrat in the Senate. He is also a
Democrat who has a proven track record of
winning seats that were previously held by
Republicans.
He grew up on a truck farm in
Loxahatchee and now lives on a farm in
Alachua. He earned his law degree in 1975
from the University of Florida. For 17
years, he was a lawyer for labor unions who
represented public employees, including
police officers and firefighters.
In 1992 he took his first political seat
when he defeated a Republican incumbent
to become the state attorney in the Eighth
Judicial Circuit, which represents ,both
Bradford and Union counties, inaddition to
others. He earned .national recognition
when he successfully prosecuted Danny
Rolling, the serial killer who was convicted
of slaying five college students in
Gainesville.
As state attorney, Smith created one of
Florida's first special prosecution units to
prosecute. defendants who committed
crimes against women and children. He
also formed a special prosecution unit for
environmental crimes.
In 2000, Smith was elected to the Senate
in a seat that had previously been-held by a
Republican. His Republican opponent
spent more money on the campaign than
Smith, but Smith walked away with the
victory. Most of the counties in Smith's
district voted for Republican presidential
candidate George W. Bush that year, but
those same people chose Smith, a
Democrat, for the Senate scat.
Raising teacher salaries is one of the
major issues Smith said he is concerned
about. He said the "professional quality of
teachers" is the single most important
factor in both school performance and
student performance. Some of the highest-
quality teachers stay' in the profession
because .of their dedication alone.
However,.. Smith said, many leave,
"shamefully inadequate salaries" to seek
higher-paying jobs elsewhere.


S1


Smith said Florida is in the
bottom 10 states in the nation
in terms of the amount of
money it spends per student.
Florida is "dead last" in
terms of the amount of taxes
devoted to public school
spending. He said these
S factors make it no surprise
that Florida students rank at
or near the bottom of states
in the nation in terms of SAT
scores and high school
S graduation rates.
Crime is another major
issue. As a former state
attorney, Smith was tough on
crime and worked hard to
help victims. In addition to
the special prosecution units,
he also implemented Project
Payback, which requires
delinquent young people to
^repay costs incurred by
victims and to pay fines.
As a state senator, he co-
authored the Jessica
Tmith Lunsford Act, increasing
criminal penalties for sex offenders and
requiring that they are tracked 24 hours a
day. He also sponsored other anticrime
legislation and was so successful that the
Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association
named their highest legislative award in his
honor. The Florida Public Defenders
Association gave him their highest
legislative award in 2005.
Smith said he believes the death penalty
is appropriate for "heinous and atrocious"
murderers, but also said he is deeply
committed to ensuring that it is
administered fairly. He sponsored
legislation to prohibit the execution of
mentally retarded people and supported
legislation requiring DNA testing in all
death.penalty cases where it is available.
Health care is another major issue. Smith
said that approximately 3.5 million
Floridians-nearly one out of every five-
lack health insurance. The number of
uninsured Floridians has increased by
650,000 since 2000 and Florida is ranked
49th. out of the 50 states'in the nation.
Family health insurance can now cost
$10,000 or more per year. Prescription drug
costs are a big portion of the problem and
Smith said he will work to reduce those
costs.'
He said the attempts to privatize aspects
of Medicaid have failed. Costs are still not
under.conttrol,,Smith.said. He said that if he
is elected, .heyalso plans to launch a full-
scale review in search of \k ays to assist
senior citizens with the "Medicare maze"
and push to allow Floridians to purchase
lower-cost prescription drugs from Canada.
He said he plans to boost staffing levels in
nursing homes and require a minimum of
2.9 hours of staff care per patient.
Finding a solution to the property
insurance crisis would also bea priority,
Smith said. Getting more private insurance
companies tp begin writing insurance in
Florida, sta'blilizing.'Citizens Property
Insurance and the Florida Catastrophe
Fund,. and enhancing competition among
insurance companies to lower rates are
.three points Smith supports in a complex
issue. He has crafted a full,plan to deal with
this crisis. The plan, can be downloaded
from his Web site,
www.rodsmith2006.com.
Discussion of issues like protecting the
environment, protecting civil rights,
improving wages and benefits for working
families, etc., can be found on Smith's Web
site.
Smith still practices law with the Avera
and Avera law firm. His wife, DeeDee, is
also an attorney and a recogfiized advocate
for child abuse victims. They have been
married for 23 years and have three
children and one grandchild.

Youth beat:

the heat with
lemonade

stand
BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Telegraph Staff Writer
What's a bunch of kids to do
ion the last day of their summer
,vacation?
Open up a lemonade stand,
of course.
Life gave one group of
nBradford County children
.lemons and they decided to
Make lemonade, including
fGeorgia Green, Graham
'Green, Janie Chatham, Alex
,Green, Hayes Chatham, Emma
,Theus and Laura Dayle Sikes.
The group opened up a
.lemonade stand on Walnut
,Street, adjacent to the Scent
;Bar, selling cups of cold
:lemonade for 25 cents. Most
,customers offered up a dollar
.and refused the change.
Parent Bonnie Green said
|the kids had been wanting to
open up a lemonade stand all
.summer, and the day before
they all returned to school was
.a perfect day to make .it .a.


reality.
The children had handmade
signs and yelled out,
"Lemonade!" to attract
potential customers coming
from local businesses and the
post office. They stood in the
hot, summer sun for two hours,
from 11 a.m.-l p.m. on
Tuesday.
While this may sound like a
great project for the young,
budding entrepreneurs, the
group wasn't in it to make
money for themselves.
When Green and fellow
parent Megan Chatham asked
the group to decide what they
wanted to do with the money,
the kids said they wanted to
help the "homeless."
So, it was decided to give
the money made from the
lemonade stand to the
community food pantry.

BC will host small farmers, entrepreneurs workshop


BY JIM DEVALERIO
Bradford-Extension Agent
A workshop for producers,
agricultural suppliers and local
entrepreneurs is being offered
at the Bradford County
Extension office on Thursday,
Aug. 31, from 5:30-9 p.m.
The "Growing Growers"
workshop will cover a broad
range of topics,. including
vegetable and herb production
(greenhouse and field), cut
flower production and a fruit
and nut overview. There will
also be a session on tips and
tools for going to the market,
along with a guest presentation
by a local market manager.
Farmers markets, especially
in urban areas, have become
very popular in the United
States. There are several
farmers markets in north
Florida that need produce to
sell. The cities of Keystone
Heights, Lake Butler, Lake
City and Gainesville all have
farmers markets that are
seeking vendors.
Currently, there is a lot of
discussion within the city of
Starke about starting a
downtown farmers market. An
area grower .can supply
produce at more than one
market since market organizers
usually schedule market days
so that they do not conflict
with other area schedules.-.
Farmers markets, however,
are only one targeted market.
Other potential markets
include local restaurants,
community supported
agriculture farms, and the local
school system. When farms are
supported by a collection of.
homeowners who ban together
and prepay for ) crops
throughout the seasdcn, you
have a community-supported
agriculture farm. The grower
gets his money first, then
invests into producing the
crop. .
As tie growerr hairets-the
crop, a variety of his produce
is obtained regularly
throughout the growing season
b> its supporters. The grower
has the advantage of knowing
his crop is sold before he
grows it and homeowners have
the benefit of fresh food.
In the Farm to Schools
program, schools use local
produce when possible. This
reduces the distance food
needs to be transported before
being sold, gets the freshest
food available to our children
and stimulates the local
economy.
Small farms make up about

"I will take care of the
concerns of all the citizens in
the district."
Horn said he is concerned
with having area taxpayers get
a fair return on 'their
investment. "I think Florida
needs to redirect a little more
of the budget from South
Florida (to serve North
Florida). A handful of counties
in South Florida waste more
money in one afternoon than
the city of Starke would need
to operate all year. If we were
able to shear a small
percentage of that away for our
communities, think of the
impact that would have."

Ivan is a businessman in
Gainesville, Kenneth is in the
U.S. Marine Corps and Nick is
deceased.
He said one of his priorities,
if he is elected, will be to
protect the lifestyle enjoyed by
residents of North Central
Florida. He said a balance can
be found that will both protect
that rural lifestyle, and respect
people's property rights.
"People should be able to use
their property the way they
want to," he said. "At the same
time, we need to do our utmost
to preserve the quality of life
people in our small, rural
communities enjoy."
He said the family farm is in
need of help. "It is becoming
more and more difficult to
make the family farm
economically viable," he said.
"We need to se6 what we can
do with the tax structure to
help preserve the family farm."

major issues in the campaign,

is. one of a field of four
candidates in the race for the
state senate seat in District 14,
which represents both
Bradford and Union counties.
Jennings' family has lived in
Florida for five generations.
Jennings currently lives in
Gainesville. He earned his
bachelor's degree in political
science, with specializations in
Spanish and business
administration, from the
University of Florida. He said
he remains a dedicated Gator
fan.
While at UF, Jennings
served as president of Florida
Blue Key and also of the Black
Student Union. His mother
was a public school teacher, so
education has been important
in his home for his entire
lifetime. His father owned a
small business and served as a
Gainesville city commissioner.
His father also earned a spot in
history by becoming that city's
first black mayor.
"My family taught me the
importance of working hard,
not just for my family, but for
the betterment of the
community," he said.
Jennings followed in his
father's footsteps-both into
business and into politics.
Jennings is president of
Jennings Development Group.
This group was created with
the goal of helping Floridians
obtain safe and decent housing


to read and write and have a
firm grasp of geography," he
said. "I come from a
community (Gainesville) with
a lot of highly educated
people, but we should also not
lose sight of the fact that we.
need good, basic education in
order to have a public that can
make informed choices and
make a good living in the
community."
'Part of'the solution would bed"
providing more money so that
each school has the resources
it needs to provide that solid,
basic education. Oelrich
supports a plan that will ensure
that 65 percent of all education
funding makes its way into the
classroom, instead of being
used for administrative costs.
He also said be plans to
demand high standards of
accountability. Ensuring that
students are taught what they
will need in order to be
successful should be a
legislative priority, he said.
Oelrich, also said that
protecting the North Florida
water supply will definitely be
an issue in the legislature in
the coming years. "It will grow
more crucial as time goes on
that we make sure no pipelines
are built to carry our water to
South Florida," he said. "We
need to encourage them nto
develop their own methods of
supplying their water needs,
like desalinization (taking salt
out of ocean water to make it
drinkable). We should have
started on this 25 years ago,
but there is no time like the
present to begin."
Oelrich also said the
institution of the family needs
to be protected. "We need to
make sure that we respect the
family unit," he said. .He, said
he supports the Florida
Marriage Amendment that
defines marriage as occurring
between a man and a woman,

Area football teams play


.preseason classics Friday


Assistant coach Isaac Morford gives a demonstration for the Keystone offensive
linemen during the first week of practice.


Time was right for


Morford's return to KHHS


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
He has not set foot on the
Keystone Heights High School
football field since he
graduated in 1998 and left for
North Carolina University:
Now, Isaac Morford, who
impacted the Indians as a
standout offensive lineman on
the field, will attempt to have
an impact on the team as- a
coach on the sidelines.
Morford will be an assistant
coach this year. He will coach
the offensive linemen and
assist with the defensive line
as well.-
This year, the Indians' first
game is at-home. Morford is
.looking forward to stepping


back out onto the field again.
"It's been a long time," he
said.
Morford and his wife, the
former Carey Head-a 2000
KHHS graduate-lived in
Greenville, S.C., previously
(she graduated from nearby
Southern Wesleyan
University). Morford was
teaching and coaching at a
high school there, while his
wife worked at a daycare.
The couple celebrated the
birth of their first
child-Layla-in March,
which made it seem like a'
good time for them to move
back home.
"We knew at some point we
wanted to come back,"
Morford said. "(Layla's birth)


just kind of made the timing
right."
Morford, aside from
coaching, will be teaching
eighth-grade math and Algebra
I honors. Though he has
teaching experience, he admits
returning to KHHS to teach is
a little bit weird. The teachers
are all on a first-name basis,
but .it's hard for Morford to
address his former teachers in
that way.
"I still can't bring myself to
do that," he said.
He is excited about the
opportunity to teach and coach
at home, where he first learned
that working with young

The games that count won't
be played until Friday, Aug.
25, but area high school
football teams will face
competition this Friday, Aug.
18, in preseason kickoff
classics.
kt's a chance for the
Bradford, Keystone Heights
and Union County teams to get
some action in before the
regular season starts, but for
one of the opponents, the
kickoff classic will mean a
whole lot more.
Matanzas High School,
Bradford's opponent, is
beginning its first year of
competition at the varsity
level. The school opened last
year in Flagler County, with
last year's team competing on
the junior varsity level only.
The Pirates are set to begin
play at their own stadium this
year, but the field will not be
ready for the classic against
Bradford. The 7:30 p.m. game,
instead, will be played at
Flagler Palm Coast High
School in Bunnell.
It will be a full game
involving Bradford's varsity
unit, similar to the classic the
Tornadoes opened the 2005
season with.
The Tornadoes hosted Terry
Parker last year, defeating the
Braves 35-30. .Running back
Rob Harris, who is a junior
this year, scored two
touchdowns for Bradford-one
on a 24-yard run and the other-
1 on a 28-yard reception.
Marcus Wilson, a senior for
the Tornadoes this year, also
scored on a one-handed, 40-
yard reception from,
quarterback J.R. Petteway,.
who has since graduated.
Bradford's other
touchdowns came on runs of 7
and 9 yards by graduate D.J.
McBride.
The Tornadoes did not allow
the Braves to have mahy
sustained drives, but a muffed
punt return and a fumble gave
Parker a short field to work
with en route to two scores.
Parker quarterbacks, though
having touchdown passes of 10


and 36 yards, completed just 3-
of-11 passes. Take away a 67-
yard touchdown run and the
Tornadoes yielded an average
of just 1 yard per rushing
attempt.
Senior lineman Corian
Garrison finished the game
with 12 tackles. Junior-lineman
Chuckie Covington had seven.


Indians host fellow
Clay County school
Keystone will host Class 4A
Ridgeview in a 7. p.m. classic
in Keystone that will feature
both varsity and junior varsity
teams.
Ridgeview, playing in
District 5 with last year's state
champion Nease, finished last
year with a 7-4 record,
qualifying for the playoffs as
district runner-up.
Keystone's preseason game
last year was quite a defensive.
affair. In a half of play, the
Indians took a 6-0 win over
Newberry.
Running back Greg Taylor,
who is a junior this season, had
the lone score on a 2-yard
touchdown run.
Not only did the Indians
keep the Panthers out of the
end zone, but graduates Tony

"Helping Children Achieve"


SJENNINGS
Continued from p. 2C


in the skills they need to get
the jobs they need, will be a
priority. "As state senator, I
will work to ensure that our
economy is diversified," said
Jennings. "I will support
efforts to improve workforce
training, investing in high-tech
and bio-tech career education
and closing the 'digital divide'
so that all of our families have
the skills they need to compete
in a global economy."
Jennings said he has already
been successful in improving
career-training programs. "We
have already worked to
establish programs to train
hundreds of school age
children as teachers,
firefighters, nurses, auto
mechanics and construction
workers," he said. "These
programs will increase our
graduation rates, currently at
65 to 75 percent-which are
49"1 or 50"h in the country.
Each child has a talent and we
need to nurture each child to
reach his or her full potential."
He said he would also work
to increase funding for
universities and community
colleges to "enhance their role
as economic engines for our
region." .The training and
education offered by colleges
and universities prepare
students for the workforce.
The more successful those
students become, the more the
economy is spurred to
improve.
He also favors creating
incentives that will encourage
economic development in rural
communities.
Jennings said he believes
that good jobs and a strong
economy go hand in hand with
affordable and safe housing.
One issue related to housing is
the property insurance crunch
being experienced in Florida.
Jennings said recent legislative
remedies didn't do enough. "If
elected to the Senate, I will
push for a 'loyalty' clause so
that insurance companies
cannot, under any
circumstances, drop -a
customer from coverage if that
homeowner has been paid in
full on their insurance
premiums for seven years or
more," he said.
He also said he would work
to get the cap on use of
affordable housing removed. "I
will continue to lead the effort
to use all of our affordable


housing," he said. This year,
while still in the House,
Jennings said, "Several of my
colleagues and I led a
successful effort to spend a
historical amount on
affordable housing. As a result,
thousands of Floridians will
live the American dream of
homeownership."
Healthcare is another major
issue in the campaign,
Jennings said. He said access
to healthcare services needs to
be increased and needs to be
available to everyone-
including senior citizens and
those who live in both rural
areas and cities. "We have to
decide to join all of the other
industrialized countries in the
world and ensure every
Floridian has access to
affordable healthcare," he said.
"I sponsored legislation to
address healthcare disparity in
the areas of diabetes, high
blood pressure and cancer, but
we did not go far enough.
Healthcare is a human right
and should not be a privilege."

Jennings also said he plans
to build on legislation that he
originally sponsored in the
House that provides incentives
for law enforcement officers
and firefighters to obtain
housing in the communities
they serve. Ensuring that
emergency personnel "first
responders" are housedin the
area they serve will improve
community safety, he said. He
said he would work to pass
legislation that will provide
down payment assistance for
emergency personnel who are
buying homes in the area they
serve.
"These are just a few of the
new ideas that I plan to bring
to the State Senate," said
Jennings. "I believe that by
creating opportunities for
families to educate their kids,
find good, high-paying jobs,
and by reforming our
insurance system, we can
continue to make North
Florida the heart of Florida."

Continued from p. 2C

health care, environment,
economy, and most
importantly, the education of
our children," said McGriff.
Education dollars need to be
increased in several areas, he
said. "1 am committed to
increasing funding for pre-K to
20 education, including teacher
and employee salaries in our
educational institutions," said
McGriff.
.1I will also protect the
economic viability of the
University of Florida and
increase community college
funding., Improving vocational
education and expanding
scholarship and student loan
programs are top priorities," he
said.
While he tapped education
as the top priority, McGriff
said encouraging business
growth in order to stimulate
the economy is also important.
"Quality of life begins with
good, well-paying jobs. Jobs
promote family stability and
provide alternatives to
government services," he said.
"We must attract new
environmentally friendly
businesses and assist our
existing businesses that wish to
grow."
He also said attention would
be given to improving salaries
for public safety providers in
order to help ensure that top
officers remain with area
agencies. "I will work to
increase the pay of correctional
officers and law enforcement
to enhance the safety of our
citizens," he said.
McGriff said the
environment is another major
area of concern for him. "I am
strongly committed to
protecting Florida's important
natural resources," he said. "I
believe we should improve
enforcement of the Clean
Water Act in our state and we
should work to ensure that our
water quality is not endangered
by continuing population
growth. I oppose drilling for
oil or natural gas along
Florida's coastline and I
support the Florida Forever
conservation program."
Making sure all Floridians
have adequate, health care is
another issue McGriff said he'
feels strongly about. "I will
work to improve access to
health care for everyone," he
said. "I want to increase
Medicaid funding for organ
transplant services and
improve transportation for
disabled residents, of District
14. I will work hard to expand
programs for prenatal care,
child health insurance, child
abuse, prevention, after-school.
programs and juvenile crime
prevention." /
As a longtime insurance
agent, McGriff said he is also
concerned about the state's
homeowner's insurance crisis.
Many insurers have declined to
write homeowner's insurance
in Florida anymore. Policy
rates have also increased. "The
state is on the verge of a
crisis," said McGriff: "Without
action," carriers will continue
pulling out and leaving the
state to operate ,its own
insurance company as the
insurer of first, instead of last,


resort." He said the state's
property insurance program is
already more than $13 billion
in debt.
McGriff said he advocates
open filing for rates, a system
that would make it easier for
insurance companies to write
insurance in Florida.
Removing some of the
"cumbersome hurdles that
have arisen with our current
regulatory system" would
encourage more major
insurance companies to return
to writing homeowner's
insurance in Florida, he said.
Having more insurance
companies writing policies, he
said, would increase
competition in the industry and.
ultimately result in more
economical rates for property
owners.
McGriff is married to the
former Noel Mills of
Gainesville. They have five
children. Their daughter, Jana,
is married to Dean Grayson
and they have four children.
Sons Mark, Keith, Kevin and
Matthew, are married and have
a total of six children between
them.
McGriff has a long record of
community service. He
recently served as co-chairman
of the American Heart
Association Heart Ball in,
Gainesville. He is a youth
football sponsor for the Boys
& Girls Club, serves on the
board of directors of the
Civitan Regional Blood Center
and is a member of the board
of directors of the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes.
He is a member of both the
Gainesville Kiwanis Club and
the Rotary Club of Gainesville.
He serves on the Community
Advisory Board for the
Southeast Tissue Bank and on
the Health and Human
Performance Advisory Council
for UF.
The list of his past
involvement in community
service activities is too
extensive to print here.
McGriff played both football'
and baseball for UF and was
inducted into the Gator Hall of
Fame in 1969. He is a member
of the. Gainesville Quarterback
Club and the Gator
Touchdown Club and serves
on the board of directors for
the G.ainesville Sports
Organizing Committee.
" He'eatned i bronze medal in'
baseball in the Pan American:
Games in 1959 and played
professional baseball in the
Karisas City Athletics
Organization in 1961-62. The
Baltimore Colts and San Diego
Chargers also drafted McGriff
out.of college to play in the
'NFL.
McGriff is a bike tour
enthusiast .and has cycled
thousands of miles across the
United States through the
years. Most recently, in 2005,
he cycled 200 miles round trip
from Ocala to Lake City and
back again as a fund-raiser for
Take Stock in Children. He
also cycled 132 miles through
Georgia with the Tours of
Rural Southern Vistas. In
2004, Hurricane Francis
interrupted a 2,850-mile bike
tour he was participating in
that was to run from Seattle,
Wash., to the Kennedy Space
Center in Florida.

It served as the start to a new
season, but the annual
Keystone Heights High School

same way as it did last year,
with Fleming Island defeating
the host Indians.
Actually, the entire order of
finish in the classic was the

Park placing third and Clay.

Fleming Island defeated
Keystone in four games last
year, but this year's match
went to five games after the

people might be something he
wanted to pursue in life.
Morford's father, Rob, was
an influence as a youth pastor,
but it was not until college that
Morford fully realized that
teaching was something he
wanted to do.
"I went to college for the
generic business degree," he
said. "I Was working with a
youth group (at the time), and I
enjoyed being around high
school kids, so it just made.
sense to get into education."
As far as coaching, Morford
said he always wanted to be
around football.

Morford played the sport at
KHHS, earning first-team; all-
state honors his junior and
senior years (he also lettered in
basketball and baseball). He

service points from Michelle
Houser. The Golden Eagles,
however, would go on to win
25-20.
Keystone got off to fast start
in the second game, getting
four service points from
Megan Poupard, to open up a
6-0 lead. Mallory Wasik had a
couple of kills during that
sequence.
Fleming Island would come
back, though, and eventually
take a 15-12 lead. Keystone
would never hold the lead
again, though the Indians did
tie the game at 23-all before
the Eagles won 25-23.
The third game was close
throughout, with the Indians
taking 15-14 lead after two
service points by Katie Taylor.
The Indians held the lead the
rest of the way, eventually
winning 25-20 after a return
error by Fleming Island with
Kim Russell serving.
A service ace by Russell
helped the Indians go up 15-7
in the fourth game. Wasik had
five service points to end the
game, giving Keystone a 25-16


However, Morford sensed
North Carolina was where God
wanted him to be and he
cancelled scheduled visits to
Auburn and Florida.
He said his first three years
at North Carolina couldn't
have gone'better. He worked
his way into the starting
lineup, but wound up back on
the bench after John Bunting
became head coach, replacing
Carl Torbush in December
2000.
Morford started all 11 games
in 2000.
"Nothing against the
coaches, but we just didn't see
eye to eye on a lot of things,"
Morford said.
He had another year of
eligibility remaining after
earning his degree, but
Morford decided it was time to
move on with his life. That's
not to say he regretted -his
decision to attend North
Carolina. He treasures the
memories of beating FSU
during his junior year and of
playing at stadiums of such
teams as FSU, Oklahoma and
Texas.
"It was an unbelievable
experience," he said. "It was

of work all year round, but it
was well worth it. I enjoyed
my experience there."
If things had gone
differently at UNC,. maybe
Morford would've gotten a
chance to play in the NFL.
That would've given him the
opportunity to be richer, but
not happier, he said. He enjoys
working with high school
students.
Now he gets to do just that
in his hometown, and he gets
to trot out onto the field where
he once played when the
Indians open the season. The
Indians host Ridgeview Friday,
Aug. 18, in a preseason classic,
then open the season Friday,
Aug. 25, against Branford.
"It'll be fun," Morford said.

HORN
Continued from p. 2C
behind-the-sce'nes volunteer,
but has never held a paid
political post. He has
volunteered as the chairman of
the.Gators for Jeb organization
and is the immediate past
chairman of the Alachua
County Republican Executive
Committee. He served as
president of the UF Law
School Republicans and is a
former member of the Young
Republicans, College
Republicans and Gator
Republicans. During college,
he also completed an
internship in the office of
former State Sen. George
Kirkpatrick.
Horn characterizes himself
as a true conservative. Horn
said he strongly endorses the
pending Florida Marriage
Amendment, which defines
marriage as an institution that
occurs between a man and a
woman-not between two
people of the same sex. He
also said he feels the Florida
ban on adoption of children by
gay or lesbian couples should
stand.
He said his views are not
prompted by any animosity
toward homosexuals, however,
"no special provision should
be made for alternative
lifestyles that fall outside the
mainstream. I do believe that
traditional marriage is unique,"
he said. Instead of dwelling on
the issue of banning same-sex
marriage,,"I prefer to view it
as uplifting traditional
heterosexual marriage
instead,' he said.
Horn is also very concerned
with veterans')/ rights. He
served in the military himself
and his wife, Kathy, has a
master's degree in
occupational therapy and
works at the, ..Veterans
Administration in Gainesville.
He said there are a number of
veterans' issues that need the
attention of the legislature. He
said he would work to make.
sure those issues got the
attention they deserve.
.Education is another major
issue in this race, Horn said.
He said more money for
schools is definitely needed,
but said attention must also be,
given to where the money will
come from. "I, too, am
concerned about class size. yet
I know that teachers "ill not


see a raise for decades if we
hamstring our county school
boards and administrators who
must implement the mandated
class size amendment," he
said.
Legislators must take a look
at realigning the education
budget, he said.
Horn also favors parental
report cards. "Not as a means
to shame or criticize parents,"
he said, "but a means to
encourage average parents to
become better parents."
The report cards would
encourage parents to ensure
their children are at school on
time and prepared for class.
They would encourage parents


to sign off on homework, show
up for meetings with teachers
and administrators, and
become more engaged in the
educational process, Horn said.
Increasing the number of
jobs available by helping
industry grow would also be a
priority, he said. "I'm talking
about biotech jobs and the like,
not service industry jobs.
created by the expansion of
gambling," he said.
Other issues he named
included keeping North
Florida's water in North
Florida, not piping it down
south. "I will strongly oppose-
piping or redirecting water to
other areas of the state," he


said. He referred to those who
support piping water to South
Florida as "water rustlers" and
said, "Our water is a
tremendous resource. We've
got to defend it."
Horn said he also embraces
"our agricultural heritage"-and
would work to make sure the
Fair Trade Agreements are
truly fair to the farmers and
ranchers. He also said he
would work to continue
reforms to eminent domain
laws. "We need to continue to
fight to make sure government
doesn't take folks' private
property," he said.
Port .security, crime,
healthcare, gas prices, and the


second amendment right to
bear arms were all named by
Horn as issues in the
campaign. An avid
outdoorsman, Horn said he
likes hunting, fishing,
motorcycles, NASCAR,
college football and history.
He said he brings a number
of strengths to the political
table. "I'm not afraid to speak
plainly or to take a stand on
the issues," he said. "I have my
priorities right ... God before
government. I am also a hard
worker. My opponents talk
about xyorking. I just work. I
willA'fight hard in Tallahassee
to-lake care of the folks in the
heart of Florida."


He said, '"-paojrmise to take
good judgment and 'firrciples-
with me to Tallahassee."
Horn and his family are of
the Baptist faith and are
currently searching for a new
church home. He and his wife
have one son, Thomas
Jonathan Horn, who will be 3
in November.
- Horn is a founding chairman
and chief executive officer of
the Parks4Kids Coalition,
which aims to spur more
private charitable investment
in parks and recreation for
children throughout the area.
