Developers to pay their share for roads

Union recognizes


Farm-City Week


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer,
The Union County
Extension Office. held a
celebration bfFarm-Ci .Week
at the Lake Butler Community
Center on Nov. 20. Extension
director Jacque Breman
welcomed the large crowd that
arrived in spite of the cold
weather.
Union County forester Jay
Tucker, Jr. addressed the issue
of Florida's outdoor burning
and forest fire laws. Tucker
also spoke of the large.amount
of dead pine trees throughout
the Union County area.
Tucke said. that there is
current concern with the
infestation of Ips beetles and
asked that residents who see' an
area with dead pines to call the
forestry office. "When an area
gets a large number of Ips
beetles, their number can
overcome the defenses of other
healthy trees," said Tucker.
John' Baldwin, University of
Florida District Extension
director, spoke about the
beginnings of agricultural
farming to where it progressed


today. Baldwin said the future
of agriculture looks bright with
the many advancements in
computer technology, the
making of new pesticides and
the use of hydroponics,
monitors, GPS systems and
precision irrigation systems.
For example, a precision
irrigation system can water the
specific areas that need
watering without overwatering
areas that do not.
Diana Smith, secretary of
the Union County Extension
Office, announced the winners
of'the 4-H bake-off. Mitchell
Cribs took first place in the
cookie category, and William
Brown came in second.
.Morgan Worrell came inr
first in the cake category, and
was also named the overall
baking winner.
By the time the awards were
announced, Worrell's cake was
nearly gone. The recipe for her
award-winning fruit cake was
then auctioned off. The
opening bid was $10 and
continued to go up until the

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD-
Telegraph Editor
Another of the growth
management mandates handed
down by the state in 2005
through S.B. 360 was the
creation of *a transportation
'program to ensure that larger
developers are paying their fair
share of road infrastructure
improvement costs.
The Proportionate Fair-
Share Transportation Program
is meant to reduce concurrency,
deficiencies by helping to
ensure new development does
not result in ia reduction of
level of service';on roads.
Each road has a level, of
service standard based on the
amount of traffic it is supposed
to serve. Because local
governments are charged with
maintaining the ,concurrency of
those standards, proportionate
share gives them another
avenue for funding
infrastructure demands
presented by n w growth. Itt
also allows for' flexibility in
achieving and maintaining
those standards so long as road
projects funded through
proportionate share are
benefiting the transportation
system.
S.B. 360 mandates that local
governments | have a
proportionate share ordinance
in place by year's end, and
Lake Butler, Worthington
Springs and Union County are
preparing to do so.
With those ordinances in
place, those governments will
.be able to quote large
developers their portion of the
cost for transportation
improvements when the
proposed developments burden
the transportation
infrastructure already in'place.
A developer 'building a
minor or even a small major
subdivision will likely get


away with paying any impact
fees for roads that either
commission may put in place.
But when a large residential or
commercial development will
create an extraordinary number
of new trips on local roads,
those developers will wind up
paying a fair share of the cost
of roadway improvements or
new road construction to help
alleviate the impact caused by
their developments. These are
projects that might otherwise
be turned down because
surrounding roads lack
capacity to satisfy
transportation security.
: If improvements to an
affected roadway are in the
government's five-year capital
improvements plan, the
developer has a right to use the
proportionate fair-share
process to advance his project.
If not in the plan, the local
government can -resolve to add
it during the next annual
update.
The proportionate fair share
is calculated by dividing the
number of trips created by the
development that exceed
roadway capacity by the
increased roadway capacity
that will result from the


improvement and multiplying
that number by the total cost.:
Developers would be
required to pay their fair-share
contribution within a year of
signing a proportionate share
agreement with local
government and to execute
improvements prior to being
issued a development permit.
A development won't
necessarily be found out of
compliance by the state,
however, if contributions can
reasonably be Fexpected within
a period of 10 years, at which
time the impact of a
development is expected to be
fully mitigated.
If local government cannot
.afford, its share of
transportation improvements, a
development agreement can
still be executed to allow the
developer to build that portion
of the project which his fair
share of the transportation
improvement costs can
support.
When proportionate fair
share process is used by local
governments, they are freed_
somewhat of the requirement
to strictly achieve and maintain
the level of service standards
on local roadways so long as.


the fair share amount paid is
used for one or more road
projects that, in the opinion of
those governments,
significantly benefits the
impacted transportation
system.
Proportionate share does not
require immediate correction
of deficiencies in level of
service standards, but local
governments must still be
mindful of those standards by
including projects to correct
those deficiencies in their five-
year capital improvement
plans.
The state issued deadline for
proportionate share ordinances
to be in place is Dec. 1,
however there isn't a penalty
for falling behind that deadline'
as the city of Lake Butler,.
Worthington Springs and
Union County will.
Governments without
proportionate share
ordinances, however, may
eventually open themselves up
to lawsuits from developers
wishing to use proportionate
share as a means for making
their projects a reality as well
as future sanctions from the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs.

Abstinence program expands

to Lake Butler Middle School


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
In April, the Bradford
County Health Department
implemented an abstinence
education program at Bradford
'Middle.School .. .,
This year, .that prQogram
spread to Lake Butler Middle
School.
JoAnna Padgett, a health
eductor with the health
departments in Union and
Bradford, was responsible for
teaching the program in both
counties.
. At BMS, a group of high
school students, who practiced
abstinence in their own lives,
were chosen to help teach the
middle schoolers..
Because the program started
relatively quickly in Union
County, Padgett took on the
task of educating students on
her own.
The program is 'entitled
"Managing Pressures until
Marriage," and goes with the
motto, "It's great to wait."
Designed to curb unwanted
teen pregnancies, the
abstinence program originally
started with a grant.
Bradford/Union County
Health Department
administrator Winnie Holland
wrote the grant because she
was familiar with the program
in Hendry County, where she
worked previously.
"If it weren't for her, we
would not have this grant,"
said Padgett, the new health
educator who was hired as part
of the.grant in early 2006.
For this school year. the


Eighth-graders Timothy Chatfield (left) and Roy
Harden (right) were just two of the students who
participated in the abstinence education program at
Lake Butler Middle School-entitled "Managing
Pressures until Marriage."


grant was rewritten, and the
health departments received
double the amount of last
year's grant, allowing them to
expand the program.
Padgett just completed the
program at LBMS with
seventh- and eighth-grade
students.
Teacher Gail Peacock said
she was surprised at some of
the statistics presented in the
five-lesson program, such as
someone gets an STD every 8
seconds.
The program was presented
for five. Monday in a row
during, one class period.
"If it can keep one kid from


making a mistake, it's worth
it," Peacock said.
Another LBMS teacher,
Kyle White, said, "The
message presented is a good
message, and it will be'tiseful
to students."
Padgett said it has been
difficult at times getting
students to open up about such
sensitive topics, but she said,
"I think it's important to start
at this age."
"I try to tell kids there are no

degree on Oct. 29, with (1-r) Governor-elect Charlie.Crist, Governor Jeb Bush,

Cities donates
to bus crash
survivors

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The president of the
Northeast Florida Chapter of
the League of Cities, Steve
Futch (former mayor of the
city of Starke), presented the
Murphy family with a $500
check last week for personal
expenses and medical bills.
Ricky. and Diana Murphy
were injured in the January bus
accident on S.R. 121. and are
still undergoing rehabilitation.
Futch presented the check to
Ricky and his mother, Mary
Murphy, at City Hall in Lake
Butler. City Manager Richard
Tillis and Union County
School Board employee'Linda
Johns were also in attendance.
Mary Murphy said she was
grateful for all of the support
her family has received from
the community, and that the
money would help, especially
during the holiday season.
Futch said the Northeast
Florida Chapter of the League
of Cities-which has 33
membership cities from Lake
City to St. Augustine-voted
at one of its board meetings to
donate 1noney to the Murphy
family.


Timothy Chatfield, also an
eighth-grader, said his parents
had "the talk" with him before,
but in class, they actually
participated in activities that
helped set boundaries and
limits.
If the program continues
next year, Padgett would like
to get students at Union
County High School involved
to mentor the LBMS students.
Padgett is also finishing up
the program at BMS (seventh-
.and eighth-grades) and will
start in January with sixth-
graders and Lawtey
Community School (grades six
to eight).

the emotional and physical
consequences of sex before
marriage, Padgett said most of
the student feedback has been
positive.
LBMS eighth-grade student
Roy Harden said, "It's stuff
you've heard before and stuff
you've never heard before
thrown into one big wallup."
He said he was surprised to
learn that no sex had to be
involved to transmit an STD.
"I would recommend they
(teach) it again," he said. "I
think it's important to teach
this to younger students so
they don't make the same
mistakes as older students

County asked to conserve water


BY MARK ,. CRAWFORDI)
Telegratph Editor
The water management
district' is now asking citizens
to conserve water.
The Suwanncc River Water
Management District has
documented a rainfall deficit
of more than 12 inches in the
counties it serves over the last
12 months. Historically, the
area can count on 55.62 inches
of rain. Through October of
this year. however, the district
only measured 43.45 inches of
rainfall.
In October. Bradford saw
only 1.95 inches of rain,
compared to 4.58 inches last
year and a historic average for
the month of 2.76 inches.
Union County, which
received 4.17 inches last
October, -received only 1.53
inches last month. October's
historic average for Union is
3.27 inches.


While no mandatory
restrictions on water
consumption arc in place, the
water management district is
asking all residential,
commercial, agricultural and
industrial users to voluntarily
reduce water consumption
through con servation
measures.
The National Weather
Service has said the lack of
rainfall is responsible for a
mild drought throughout the
Suwannec River Basin in
Florida and Georgia because of
the low to extremely low
levels of groundwater and
surface water in the region.
..According to a press release
from the water management
district, new record monthly
lows were observed at the
Aucilla River near Lameont, the
Steinhatchec River near Cross
City and, for the second month
in a row, the Santa Fe River
near Fort White. The end-of-


month reading at the
Withlacoochee River near
Pinctla tied the historic
monthly low at that station,
after setting a new low last
month.
The National Weather
Service is predicting a return
to El Nino weather patterns
this winter; coming rainfall
should replenish water
resources. Until then, the water
management district is offering
the following water-saving
tips:
* Reduce lawn/landscape
irrigation.
* Don't water between 10
a.m.- 4 p.m.
* Install an automatic rain
shutoff switch on irrigation
systems.
* Plant drought-resistant
trees, plants and grasses.
* Equip hoses with
automatic shutoff nozzles.
* Wash vehicles
infrequently and only on
porous surfaces.


* Use a broom or
blower-not a hosc-to clean
sidewalks, driveways, parking
areas.
* Fix leaky faucets and
toilets, whih can waste up to
100 gallons per day.
* Replace older fixtures
with low-flow devices.
* Don't let the water run
while brushing teeth, shaving,
or washing dishes.
* Take shorter showers;
staying under five minutes can
save 1,000 gallons per month.
* Don't use toilets as a
wastebasket.
* Use appliances efficiently
(run full loads in clothes
washer and dishwasher).
Water shortage advisories
are issued by the district'in
accordance with Florida
Statutes and the Florida
Administrative Code, which
gives them authority to
implement water shortage
plans.

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


Keep food
safety in mind
during
holidays
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers
to follow food safety measures
during the upcoming holiday
season.
More than 76 million people
are sickened by food-borne
illnesses every year in the
United States, resulting in
325,000 hospitalizations and
more than 5,000 fatalities.
Many food-borne illnesses are
preventable if consumers take
steps to protect themselves and
their families.
The department's Division of
Food Safety is responsible for
protecting the food supply
through permitting and
inspections of retail food
establishments and lab testing
food products. But, safe and
proper food handling practices
in the home are critical
components of preventing food
poisoning, and recent research
by a -national food safety
education group indicates many
people are not aware of the
prevalence of food-borne
illnesses. Food poisoning is
caused by bacteria that are often
undetectable by sight, smell or
taste.
"The holidays bring many
celebrations that center around
food, including buffets that
result in food being left out for
extended periods of time,"
Bronson said. "Even people
who are well aware of safe food
handling and preparation may
get caught up in the holiday
chaos and be less than vigilant
about following safe practices."
One top concern this time of
year is the increased risk of
illness resulting from stuffing
turkeys prior to cooking,
which is not recommended by
food safety experts. Here are
some other tips to follow for a
safe holiday season: .
-Thaw the turkey ini the
refrigerator, not the counter.
Room temperatures promote
bacteria growth. Allow one day
of defrosting for each five
pounds of turkey weight.
-Cook the stuffing separate
from the turkey. Stuffing put
in an uncooked turkey is
susceptible to bacteria growth.
. -Cook to the proper
temperatures. A whole turkey
should reach an internal
temperature of 180 degrees F.
The stuffing in a turkey should
reach a temperature of 165 F
degrees. Cooking a turkey at
less than 325 degrees F is
unsafe because it allows the
bird and stuffing.to remain in
the danger zone for bacterial
growth for too long.
-Don't interrupt the
cooking process. Interrupting
the cooking process promotes
bacteria growth.
-Slice the turkey .before
refrigerating. Whole turkeys
do not store safely in the
refrigerator. Put the slices into
shallow containers, cover and
refrigerate.
-Keep cold foods cold and



IN SERVICE


hot foods hot.
-Be careful with holiday
buffets. Servings should be
kept small and replenished
often-directly from the stove
or refrigerator. The longer food
is kept out, especially beyond
two hours, the higher the risk


of food poisoning.
-Carefully store leftovers.
To speed up the..cooling
process, put leftovers into
shallow, covered containers and
keep refrigerator temperature at
i 40 degrees F or below.
Perishable foods left at room


temperature for longer than two
hours are susceptible to
bacterial growth.
--LThoroughly wash hands,
cutting boards and utensils
before and after contact with
raw meat, poultry, seafood and
eggs.


-Keep raw meat, poultry,
and seafood apart from foods
that won't be cooked. -
With a greater potential for
food poisoning over the
holidays, it is important that
consumers follow safe food
handling, preparation and


storage practices. Consumers
can learn more about food
safety tips for the holidays by
logging onto the department's
Web site at
www.doacs.state.fl.us and
clicking on food safety tips
under the Hot Topics category.

BY MARCIA MILLER
Special to the Telegraph
As a Hawthorne native,
Jesse Brown said the Starke
Post Office has a small-town
feel that appealed to him from
the first.
"I'm just a country boy,"
said Brown. "I grew up in the
country and I like the small-
town feeling I get here.,
Everyone is personable,
They're just nice folks."
Brown graduated from
Hawthorne High School and
spent four years in the Marine
Corps before signing on with
the United States Postal
Service 24 years ago.
He started out-before the--
desktop computer age-as one
of the people who typed.. the
addresses into the giant sorting
machines that used to handle
the mail. He got to the point
where he could type 100-plus
words per minute before he
began to move up the ladder.
He moved into human
resources and that job took
him all over the country in
management positions. He.
worked in various aspects of
human resources with post
offices in Georgia, Texas and'
Ohio.
"The weather in Akron was
just too cold. I thought to
myself, 'What's a Florida boy
doing up here in all this
snow?' I decided I needed to
come south again," said
Brown.
In 1999, he accepted a
position as postmaster in Citra
and then began working as
postmaster in his hometown,
Hawthorne. That was the
position he held just prior to
coming to Starke two months
ago.
Brown said that although
working in his hometown was
nice, Starke gave him that
hometown feeling, but was
still different enough to be a
challenge. "Starke is a good
opportunity for me to see life
outside my hometown," said
Brown. "I thought I could
bring something to Starke and
still be very at home here."
Brown lives in Gainesville
and worked for a while in the
Jacksonville Post Office. He
drove through Starke every
"day.
S"I always thought this,
looked like such a nice town.
Even- back then, I -said to
-m-yself that one day I wanted
to be the postmaster in Starke.'
I just fell in love with the town
back then," said Brown. He
said he came to Starke with tha.--
intention of staying.
Brown said the post office is.
small enough so that he can get
out into the lobby and meet the
customers. He said he likes
that. "I like to talk.to people
and hear their concerns first
hand," he said.
He said the Starke Post
Office was already performing
well when he arrived. "I just
intend to tweak it a little," he
Mx M3KX K ff1KX K KIff


said.
He said he intends to make it
easier for the employees to
work together as a team.
"When everyone works
together, the customers get the
top-quality service they are
entitled to," he said. "Ronald
Reagan said that you can
achieve a lot if you don't
worry about who is going to
get the credit. I think that's
something to live by."
Brown said he intends to put
into place policies designed to
make the post office even
more "customer-friendly".
According to rBrown, the
Starke Post Office has 3,902
rural route customers, 2,418
city customers and about 1,000
post office box customers.-It

from the post offices in

Brown said the post office
now has a lot of competition
out there from other mail
services, 'but he said he feels
the post office is still the most
reliable for express and
priority mail. "If it absolutely
has to be there overnight, give
it to the post office for express
mail service," said Brown.
Priority mail is delivered
within one or two days.
"I want to make Starke Post

Dear Editor:
The thought came to me
how mysterious the bird
buzzard is.
I've never seen a buzzard
nest, its baby birds or even
where they roost, but let a road
kill happen, and you'll see
them come from all directions.
Come to think of it, the
buzzard, politician and the car
salesman have a lot in
common.
During an election, you can
hardly eat a meal for them
shaking your hand and asking
for your vote and support:
They come from everywhere.
After the election, they
become as scarce as the
buzzards.
When you're shopping for a
car, the salesman will smother
you telling you all about the
features and the guarantee that
you have with his automobile.
A few months later, after you
make the deal and drj\e.back
in, it's hird io find anyone to
.talk to. They'll disappear like
the buzzards and politicians,
I \ill say this is not the case
with all politicians, but those
are few and far between.

Dear Editor:
As this is about the time of
the year when health insurance
plans conduct enrollment for
2007 coverage year, I would
like to call my fellow citizens'
attention to a proposed bill in
Congress which will establish
a single-payer, national health
insurance system. I am
referring to H.R. 676, titled
The United States National
Health Insurance Act, which
will guarantee all Americans,
Sfrom-,itrth to death, access to
top .quality.,,but.cost-effective.

HE EDITOR


health care services, regardless'
of employment, income, or
medical condition. We will be
rid of exorbitant health
insurance premiums,
deductibles, and copays. We
will be rid of a convoluted
health care system that has
turned the practice of medicine
from a noble profession into a
corporate industry.
It seems to me certain
propaganda have been
implanted in the American
consciousness. One such'
propaganda is that a single-
payer, national health care
system is socialized medicine
and wrong for America. Is
Medicare, a .health insurance
program for age 65 and older,
socialized medicine? 'People
with Medicare can choose their
physician, hospital and/or
clinic.
How Medicare differs from
non-Medicare health insurance
is that Medicare payments to
the health care providers come
from one source only (Medicare
fund). However, as many of us
already know, Medicare does
not pay for all health care costs
and has many restrictions and
.exclusions--the reason why
Medicare beneficiaries still need
private, supplemental
insurance.
The proposed U.S. National
Health Insurance Act (H.R.
676) is sometimes 'called
"Medicare for-All." It is like
Medicare in that all health care
providers will be paid from one
.government fund and will be
administered by one agency.
Also, like Medicare, it will be
a privately delivered health care
system. However it will he--
better than our current.Medicare
.programfwhich is embroiled in
a convoluted system controlled
by insurance companies and the


pharmaceutical industry. The
doctor, not the insurance
company, will determine the
treatment a patient will receive
in a single-payer, national
health care system. No one
will be denied coverage due to a
preexistingg condition." People
will always receive health care
regardless of where they work.
There will be no need to haggle
with insurance, companies
about services they would not
cover. No one will have "out-
of-pocket" costs or coverage
"caps." The program will cover
primary care, hospitalization,
outpatient treatment, mental
health, dental, vision,
chiropractic, prescription drugs,
and long-term care.
A less known fact is that the
number one reason for
bankruptcies today is
insurmountable medical bills
incurred by working Americans :::
-many with health insurance.
The readers probably won't
have 'to look far to find ":
individuals or families
struggling with health care
costs. Our current profit-driven
health care system is no longer ,
just a problem of the poor; it
is clearly a worsening problem
for middle-class America. )
Another propaganda is the
notion the government cannot
afford a national health care
program and will have to
increase our taxes. ".
The truth is that. the U.S.
cannot afford not to have a
national health care system in -
place. Presently, the United
States pays much more than
any other country for health
care; yet, our health care
delivery is ranked 37th by the '
World Health Organization.

Tanner's
garage
lost to fire
Nov. 20
An automotive repair garage
located on U.S. 301 north of
Lawtey was lost to fire Monday
in the early morning hours.
The chief of police and
firefighters arrived on the scene
at 12:30 'a.m. to find Oral.
Tanner's garage fully engulfed
in heavy flames. The fire was
contained and brought under
control within an hour,
according to Chief Mike
Brown. Due to the frame of the
building being unstable,
firefighters were unable to get
inside the structure. Three
vehicles inside the garage
burned and their gas tanks
exploded. At least two vehicles
outside the garage were also
damaged due to the heat of the
fire.


A main concern for the
firefighters was a 500-gallon
tank of used fuel oil, which was
located within the building.
They were successful in
keeping it from exploding,
according to Chief Terry
McCarthy.
Approximately 20,000
gallons of water were used to
keep the fire from spreading.
The water was delivered by
firefighter tankers to a dump
tank that was set up in the
middle of U.S. 301, tying up
traffic for several hours.
Multiple units and
approximately 25 firefighters
arrived to assist in the fire.
Mop-up was completed by 5
p.m., Chief Brown said.
Units and/or personnel
responding were Lawtey,
Heilbron Springs, Hampton,
New River volunteers and
Starke Fire Department.
Sheriffs deputies and Florida
Power and Light were also on
the scene to assist, Chief

LETTER
Continued from p. 4B

health insurance program will
actually reduce annual health
care spending because a single-
payer system will substantially
reduce administrative costs of
providing health care to the
citizens. Said system will
further save money by-
negotiating lower prices with
the drug companies s uch
provision currently prohibited
by law.
In addition, significantly
fewer people will use the
emergency room-ultimately
funded by our tax dollars-since
everyone will have access to
care before serious health
problems occur.
Our taxes will not increase.
In fact, 95 percent of families
will pay less for health care and
will get significantly more
health care benefits. -In the
work world, all employers will
pay a modest 3.3 percent
payroll tax per employee and
this will provide additional
funding to the national health
care program.
Currently, employers who
provide health coverage pay an
average of 8.5 percent of
payroll. Many of us are aware
that increasingly more and
more employers are unable to
provide health coverage to their
employees.
It is important to point out
that the proposed National
Health Insurance Act does not
eliminate private health
insurance. The proposed
legislation will prohibit private
health insurers to sell coverage
already provided by the single-
payer health care system.
Nonetheless people can opt to
buy private health insurance for
coverage not provided by the
national health care program,
like cosmetic surgery or other
not-medically necessary
procedures.
There may be readers who
will think that a single-payer,
national health insurance
system as proposed in H.R.
676 is too good to be true.
Definitely not so. The system
works well in Europe, Canada,
Australia and New Zealand.
The United States is the only
industrial country without a
national (also called
"universal") health care system
-a sad commentary on our
government.

health care plan on their
agenda.
U.S. Rep. John Conyers
introduced H.R. 676 in 2005,
and apparently 150 to 200
signatories .are needed for the
bill to get a first hearing in
committee. We have 435
congressmen/ congresswomen
in the U.S. House of
Representatives and, so far,
only 77 U.S. Representatives
have signed onto the bill.
Moreover, there needs to be a
corresponding bill in the U.S.
Senate.
We have 100 U.S. Senators
but no one has introduced
corresponding legislation in
their chamber.
After the dust from the
election settles, I strongly urge
everyone to write, or call, our
senators and representatives to
legislate a single-payer,
national health insurance
system. It will not matter
whether the Republican Party
or the Democratic Party
controls Congress. I feel
certain it will be "business as
usual" on Capitol Hill which
means most of our senators and
representatives will remain
beholden to lobbyists funded
by insurance and drug
companies. The way Congress
conducts business will not
change unless we, the people,


speak up and stand united.
Let us not get misled or
distracted by non-solutions to
our health care crisis. I have
heard "experts" and politicians
talk about a need to "increase
competition" among health
care companies. All health care
costs are so incredibly,
ridiculously high that "lowered
prices" will be token gestures ..
and will remain unaffordable to_-
most people. Some may say-=.=-
the insurance companies or _-'
drug companies need to make_
profits to survive. Then, I ask, -:
how do other countries manage
to provide high-quality health
care to their constituents at
lower costs?

Legislation to establish a4
single-payer, national health-
insurance program should not
be a partisan issue. Our'
congressmen andf .
congresswomen have a solemrin
duty to represent and serve thei-
interest of the people.
We, the people, shouldL-
demand that our senators and- .
representatives do the right ':
thing. It should not bring fear
or shame. On the contrary, it is
patriotic. It is the essence of '
our Republic.

Family atmosphere is why KH

business is 'best place to work'


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Doug Wise and Bob Canady
may not be blood relatives, but
they are running a real family-
style business in Keystone
Heights. 1
According to owners and


employees alike, Keystone
Building Center is operated by
a family. "We consider
everyone here our family,"
said Canady. "We know about
each other's families, we talk
to each other as people. We
hire someone as a. person, not
just as an employee."


That family atmosphere is
not something that can be

Viona Tew stands by her car, which is adorned with dolls-a common sight for
travelers on U.S. 301.


'Raggedy Ann' lady. has

traded in smiles for 30 years


BY ARNIE HARRIS
LRM Staff Writer
Viona Tew and her car-
festooned with Raggedy Ann
and Andy dolls for sale have
been a fixture on U.S. 301 for,
30 years-she and her, dolls
can usually be seen from
Thursday to Sunday each week
(and almost every day during
the holiday season) as one
approaches Lawtey, at the
intersection of 301. and S.R.
200A on the northbound side.
In 1976, Tew found herself
laid off from her job at a
uniform company in Keystone
Heights. Seeking help from the
government, she soon found
herself staring at an
unemployment check in the
princely amount of $18. That
was when Tew made a fateful
decision, she said.
"Should I go buy whatever
groceries I can with the
money, or,should I buy the
materials I need to make
Raggedy Ann dolls?" she said.
She chose the latter, and the
rest, as they say, is history.
Asked why she made what
some. might consider an
unusual choice, Tew said she
loved dolls her whole life.
"I always lived in a world of


fantasy and enchantment," she
said.
An independent-minded
woman, Tew was never one to
be swayed by naysayers who
might tell her she was living in
a dream world and should
pursue a more "practical" line
of work. But after all, she
already admitted that.
She said she went right out
and bought the necessary
materials-crushed foam,
muslin and the patterns needed
to make the dolls.
Following her own path
seemed to; pay off as she-
proceeded to make eight dolls
and took them to the Waldo
Flea Market.
"I made more money in one
day there than I did in a whole
week on my old job," Tew said
with a smile.
That was all she needed to
know. From then on she
became something of a one-
woman doll factory (later on
.she had help from her husband,
Homer, who passed-away in
1998 after nearly 50 years of
marriage, and her five
children).
Tew said she makes
anywhere from six to 20 dolls
a day, depending on demand.
Once, she said, she and her


helpers went full out, using
their top-of-the-line Singer
sewing machine just to see
how many they could produce
in'one day, and the tally was
32.
Besides the Raggedy Ann
and Andy dolls, Tew" also
makes dolls that evolved as
part of Ann's extended family:
Beloved Belinda, Uncle Clem
and the Camel with the
Wrinkled Knees.
In addition she makes dolls
of her own invention: clowns,
elves, granny dolls and others.
Tew paints all her dolls and
often customizes them
according to holidays such as
Christmas, Valentine's Day
and Easter, along with those
with patriotic motifs for the
Fourth of July and Memorial
Day. -
Her dolls come in four sizes
ranging from 15 to 36 inches.
Tew said business is
unpredictable and
inconsistent-one day she may
make little or no sales, and on
another may have many
customers.
The fluctuating price of
gasoline plays a major role in

The other three are

of Starke and Lake Butler, and

already been published on
Touchstone and Mercantile

will be coming in future
weeks.
FloridaWorks and the North
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce hired Personnel
Dynamics to conduct a survey
of businesses in Bradford and
Union counties and ,the
Keystone Heights area. The
survey was voluntary and
confidential. Businesses were
asked to answer questions in
37 different areas, like benefits
paid to employees, employee
turnover rates, training
programs, business growth
rates, etc.
The answers were quantified
and compared and four
businesses with the top
averages were chosen for the
award. Each business will
receive a confidential report
that details how it stacked up
to the average in each
category. A general report is
due to be released' this week
-that will discuss the averages
in each categovrN for the area.
That Ieport %ill not include
specific scores earned by
specific businesses.
The only specifics released
to the public are those factors
tht' helped earn the four top
businesses their awards. The
program is designed to be a
learning tool for use by
businesses who want to find
out more about how to- attract
and retain good employees.

James Croft's trash-talking
days are over.
-Croft, an- evangelist whose.
home church ik Firsi Biptist of
Lake "Butler. used io joke witRl'
people that he was a
"professional trash talker."
That referred to the fact he
would speak at schools and to
civic organizations about
recycling and other matters
concerning the New River
.Regional Landfill, where he
worked.
However, Croft has left the.
'trash behind, quitting his job
with the New River Solid
Waste Association and
becoming a full-time
evangelist. He said he felt the
time was right t6 make a
change, but that did not mean
there was no nervousness
about doing, so.
"It's a lot easier to tell others
to step out on faith than it is
for yourself," Croft said.
He said when he made the
S..announcement to the
congregation at First Baptist6'of
Lake Butler, he told the crowd
he wanted to say he wasn't
scared, but he couldn't.
Walking away from a job is a
major step to take in one's life,
Croft said.
Yet he felt it is what God
wanted' him to do. Once Croft
made the decision, he said he

Building Center had a number'
of positive factors that made
the business stand out from the
crowd. A high growth rate was
one of the top factors. KBC
had an 30 percent growth rate
over the past two years while
the average for the area is .6.9.
percent.
KBC has a profit sharing
plan which involves 95.2
percent of its 21 employees.
Every eligible employee is
provided with short-term
disability insurance and all
employees, full-time or part-
time, long term or new hires,
are eligible for the end-of-year
bonus incentive.
"That is one of the things we
are very proud of," said Wise.
"We did it from the first year,
even though the company was


from out. of the blue about
preaching at revivals.
"There was some
nervousness," he said, "but
once I made the decision in my
mind, I -began, to see -some
_ hing. open. up.-that .,.otall)
'surprised me."
Croft often found there was
not enough time in the day to
devote to his job with NRSWA
and to his ministry. He spent
many hours at night, after his
day job, preparing for revivals
and working on his new
podcast ministry.
Plus, by not working at the
landfill anymore, Croft's
schedule is more flexible when
it comes to participating in
revivals.
"I think this is going to be a
definite benefit," he said.
Croft worked with NRSWA
for more than 17 years. He
said his favorite part of the job
was going out into the three
counties the landfill serves and
educating people about
recycling.
..That, to- Croft, was no
different than the work he did
in the ministry. As he put it, he
was being a good steward.
"It went hand in, hand with
the ministry," he said.
Croft has been preaching for
approximately 12 years,
announcing his decision to
enter the ministry in December

not profitable that first' year.
We did it anyway."
The company also recently
added an Individual
Retirement Plan for all its
employees.
KBC also provides ample
trainii.g opportunities so
employees can train to advance
within the company. KBC
spends $833 per employee on
employee education and
development. The average
spent by businesses'in the area
was $798 per employee.
Canady and Wise each said
the family atmosphere and a
true concern for the well-being
of all their employees are the
factors that prompted the
implementation of the
programs that earned them this
award-and that have enabled
them to maintain skilled
employees without losing them
to larger businesses.
KBC's history might lead
you to dub it "The Little
Business That Could." Wise
and Canady worked together
for BP Petroleum in Alaska
and when they each retired at
about the same time a little
more than five years ago, they
both ended up in Keystone.


Within months they realized
retirement was not for them.
"We were bored," said
Canady. "We were total
failures at retirement. We both
discovered we needed
something to do besides watch
television and play golf."
They decided to try their
hands at opening their own
business. When that business
took off growing by leaps and
bounds, it wasn't entirely
expected, but it was very
welcome. "We expected to
succeed. It's just done a lot
better than we expected," said
Wise.
The business that was born
out of a quest for a way to
stave off boredom has become
a mainstay in the Keystone
community. More that 50
percent of the employees who
were hired in that first year are
still working with the
company, said Canady.
Wise said their approach to
the business is somewhat
different. He said it was typical
for similar businesses to hire
temporary employees, but
KBC has never done so. Full-
time employees work 10-hour
shifts; four days a week. The-

schedule is arranged so that
employees get five days off in
a row every three weeks.
"It's a fun place to work,"
said Wise. "It's not up-tight.
People are comfortable in their
jobs. We don't micro-manage.
We give them latitude to do
their job and come up with
ways to do it faster or more
efficiently.".
Wise said the business filled
a niche in the community. It
provided people with a place
to obtain their -.b'ilding


supplies without driving to
Starke, Gainesville or Orange
Park. He said competent
service made the real
difference, though. "In quality
of product and service, we can
stand up to anyone," he said.
"In service, we can beat
anyone."
It is the employees that
provide that service and Wise
said he and Canady never
forget that.
Vice President of
Operations Brian Gassett
came on scene at KBC six
months after it opened. "There
is a very definite family
atmosphere here," he said. "No
one rules with a baseball bat.
People are treated with respect.
We care about our
employees," he said.
"We try to hire good people
and treat them well. Our
business is all about service.
Their hard work and efforts
have made us have great years
every year," said Gassett. "We
want good people who will
come and will stay. Longevity
is important in this business
because there is a lot to learn."
Office Manager Holly
Edwards has been with the
business since it opened. "You
couldn't ask for two better
men to work for (Wise and
Canady). They treat us like
family," she said.
"Any time, anything that
happens, we can count on their
help and guidance. I have three
dads now, my real dad and the
two I claim as dads," she said.

Jumping for
heart health
Students at Brooker and Hampton
elementary schools did their part to
support the American Heart Association
by jumping rope recently. The students,
who went out and sought sponsors,
jumped in teams of five or six. One
student jumped until he or she missed
twice, then passed the rope off to
another team member. One team
member was jumping at all times during
the morning-long event. LEFT:

the younger jumpers. Students from

Viona Tew makes anywhere from six to 20 dolls a day.

her sales, she said.
She gets a lot of business
from truck drivers, buying the
dolls for their families?, she
said I :" -
"The truckers '-from
Pennsylvania are the best and
most consistent customers,"
Tew said, although she didn't
know exactly why that was. .
Lest one think Tew a one-
trick pony, she is also an
author who has had one book
published, the semi-


autobiographical "Pig on a
Skateboard." She has a second
finished book, based on her
childhood during World War
II, which she intends to publish
in the future and is currently
working on a third. She has
also written and illustrated
children's books.
It is generally agreed that the
first Raggedy Ann Doll was
made in 1915, with Andy
following three years later.
A man named Johnny
Gruelle, who was a writer and
artist from Arcola, Ill.,
according to accounts, found a
doll (which he dubbed
Raggedy Ann) in his mother's
attic that she had made for his


sister years earlier. He made
up stories about the doll for his
young daughter, Marcella,
who tragically died later that
year.
Gruelle eventually wrote and
illustrated books about
Raggedy Ann.
A company named Volland
soon negotiated with Gruelle
and got exclusive rights to the
production of Raggedy Ann.
Over the years since then,
the rights to the doll changed
hands several times among
such companies as Applause,
Hasbro and Hallmark.
A woman of great faith, Tew
seems not overly concerned
with the amount of money she


makes. She possesses one of
Gruelle's original Raggedy
Ann dolls, but has never.
bothered to see how much
money it might fetch from.
collectors. She considers the.
creation of her dolls and the
giving of them to others its;
own reward.
"You should see my,
house-I have so many dolls,
in it you can hardly move,"
Tew said with a laugh.
And, as one of her
daughters, Shara, said on the)
cell phone during her
interview, "Remember, Mom,
it's not the money, it's how;
many smiles you give out:
every day."


Shaleigh Peterson wasn't shy about taking her turn
with the jump rope.

Racing is a 'drag' for Starke's Mitchell Gunter


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Stalf Writer
Christmas may not be here
yet. but it came early for
Mitchell Gunter, who stared at
Christmas tree lights on
Father's Day before speeding
his way to a win at Gainesville
Raceway.
In (he 31-year-old Gunter's
case, the lights lie was staring
at were not on an actual tree
bui the electronic starting
device that is situated between
lanes at drag races.
Gunter, who lives in Starke,
has been drag racing for
several years now, sandwiched
around a two-to-three-year
hiatus when he burned the
motor up in his car. His most
recent race came on the
weekend of Nov. 4 when he
competed in Adel, Ga. He was
able to last four rounds,
competing against several
veteran racers, before being
knocked out by a red light
(false starting before the green
light).
"I tried," Gunter said, but
the performance in no way
dampered his enthusiasm for
racing. That's what winning a


trophy will do for you.
Gunter competed in the
Dragracingresults.com series
in Gainesville on Father'v-Day
weekend and won his bracket.
"Being able to put my car in
victory lane and having
pictures taken" has been the
highlight of his brief racing
career, he said.
Since then, Gunter has made
it to the semifinals of a few
races. He finished as runner-up
in a race on Sept. 9 in
Gainesville with a time of
13.708 at 101.18 miles per
hour.
The car that earned Gunter
that runner-up finish, as well
as his win on Father's Day, is
the same car he drives every
day-a 1997 Mercury Cougar.
"I drive it every day to work
as well as race it out there on
the strip," Gunter said. "It's
just fun beating people who
bring their cars by trailer with
a car you drive every day."
The car, which has a 2003
GT Mustang engine in it, has
surprised more than a few
people at the track, Gunter
said. It runs a 13.1 at 106 miles
per hour in the quarter mile
and his fastest time in one-


Mitchell Gunter is shown with his 1997 Cougar Mercury, which has a 2003 GT
Mustang engine in it. The car is Gunter's every-day vehicle as well as the one he
drag races with.


eighth of a mile is 8.40 at '84
miles per hour.
"It's odd to see a big'car like


that out there on the track run
as well as it has," Gunter said.
Bracket racing attempts to


level the field, no matter what
type of cars two drivers
squaring off against one


another are driving. Each
driver chooses a dial-in time,
which is an estimated time the
driver feels his car will take to
cross the finish line. The
starting lights on the Christmas
tree are adjusted accordingly
so that the slower car will get a
head start equal to the
difference between the two
dial-ins.
A car that crosses the finish
line faster than its dial-in is
disqualified.
"All a car has to do is run
consistent," Gunter said. "It
becomes a skill after a while.
You've got to know when to
let off the gas and when to
push it a little more. It does
take a skill to be able to
bracket race."
Gunter said he has always
been interested in cars. Going
to car shows and hangih.- out
with people like Starke's .
Smith, who builds his own i.
rods, just sort of led him in the
direction of drag racing, he
said.
He said entering a race is
simple.

another tie in boys soccer


Keystone Heights High School senior Mallory Wasik (center) signs a letter-of-intent

It was a time to recognize a
historical mark for the

to congratulate senior Mallory
Wasik, who signed a letter of

after spending her first two
years at St. Johns River

"My dream was always to
go to either a D-I or D-II

worked really hard to at least
get a good scholarship. I'm
happy with this."

years. She asked Conkling if
she could stay after the camp
ended and practice hitting.
That one time she stayed after
grew into "dozens and dozens
and dozens-maybe even
hundreds-of other times that
she stayed after and hit
volleyballs," Conkling said.
She would do so for stretches
of 60-90 minutes.
"That's one of the reasons
why she's here toda.."
Conkling said. "She put in the
work."
Wasik also put in the %\ork
necessary to get colleges to
notice her. She wrote letter s to
130 different schools
beginning in her sophomore
year.
"That's the only way to get
yourself noticed, really,"
Conkling said. "Coaches don't
know you down here in
Keystone unless you go out
there and tell them you're here.
That's what she did."
One such school she
contacted was West Virginia
Wesleyan, where Carla Decker
was the head coach. Decker
coached at Wesleyan two years
before taking over at Lander
this past season.
Decker always stayed in
contact with Wasik. She had

Telegraph Staff Writer
Since opening the season
with a win, the Keystone
Heights boys soccer team has
finished tied in four straight
matches, including a 2-all
match against district opponent
Matanzas on Nov. 17 in Palm
Coast.
Keystone head coach Trevor.
Waters' decision to move
Michael McLeod from goalie
to midfield to give a spark to
the offense against Matanzas
seemed to work. The Indians
(1-0-4, 0-0-2 in District 5-3A
prior to Nov. 20) trailed 1-0 at
the half, but tied the match
early in the second half when
striker Ryan Miller scored on a
pass from McLeod.
McLeod found the net next
for the Indians when he took a
pass from Branden Waters and
blasted it past the Pirates'
diving goalie-Adrian
Aguedelo-for a 2-1 lead in
the, 70'h minute.
Keystone could not hang
.onto the lead. Matanzas' Kevin
Lefkowic launched a high shot
over the outstretched hands of
Keystone goalie Juan Arenas
to knot the score.
McLeod seemed to have
given the Indians the win. with __
a late-minute goal, but a late
offsides call nullified the
score.'
Prior to playing Matanzas,
the Indians renewed an old
rivalry; against P.K. Yonge,
which h ended in a scoreless tie
on Nov. 14 in Gainesville.
P.K. Yonge made several
runs., early, but, Keystone's
McLeod, playing goalie, made
several nice saves.
The second half between the
former district opponents was
physical with a total of 22
fouls called and four yellow
cards issued. Keystone's Justin
Hannah had a scoring
opportunity when he beat
goalie Matt Honeycutt for a
wide-open shot, but fiis
attempt sailed to the left of the
post.
P:K. Yonge had a scoring
attempt late, but a shot
bounced off the top post.

BHS girls beat Middleburg by 43


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a struggle offensively
at first for the Bradford girls
basketball team, but the
Tornadoes relied on their
defense to create some easy
baskets as they defeated
district opponent Middleburg
69-26 on Nov. 16 in Starke.
The Tornadoes (3-0, 1-0 in
District 3-4A prior to Nov. 20)
found themselves trailing the
Broncos by two points about
midway through the second
quarter. Bradford would go on
a 20-4 run to close out the
half-a stretch in which
Middleburg turned the ball
over 14 times.
Three of those turnovers
were steals by Bradford's
Tosha Griffin. She scored on
layups following two of those
steals.


Destiny Bass scored on a
layup following a steal by
Keita Goodman, while Ebony
Smith scored followings her
own steal, putting Bradford up
20-13.
A backcourt steal by Jerica
Warren led to a basket by
Demetria Slocum, who then
scored another basket
following her own steal. That
gave the Tornadoes a 12-point
lead.
Bradford did not let up,
holding Middleburg scoreless
in the third quarter while
scoring 20 points. Goodman,
Griffin and Smith each had a
3-pointer early in the third
quarter.
Griffin and Smith each had
14 points, and Bass had 10.
Goodman finished with nine
points, while Slocum and
Khalaa Hill, who was 4-of-6
from the foul line, each had

KH girls

open hoops

season with

5-point win

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a pretty even game
throughout its entirety, but the
Keystone Heights girls
basketball team's 19-12
advantage in the second
quarter helped the Indians
open the season with a 49-44
win over visiting Clay on Nov.
14.
The Indians (1-0 prior to
Nov. 20) were led by Kim
Russell's 17 points. She was 3-
of-4 at the foul line.
Abby Knabb and Carrie
Taylor each scored eight
points, with Taylor making
both of her free throw
attempts.
Keystone head coach Mike
Ruszkowski admits this will be
somewhat of a rebuilding year
for the Indians, who lost the
bulk of their experience from
last year. Plus, Ruszkowski is
in his first year as the team's
coach.
"It's kind of like we're all
new here," he said.
However, the team may
welcome back forward Kellie
Spaulding at some point this
year. Spaulding is currently
recovering from shoulder
surgery. She would
complement Russell as two of
the.most experienced players
returning from last year.
Keystone was scheduled to
play its first district opponent
on Nov. 17 against Taylor in
Pierson, but no officials
showed up for the game.. It is
not known yet when that game
will be rescheduled.
The Indians played in their
annual Thanksgiving
tournament on Nov. 20-21 and
will next play at Middleburg
on Tuesday, Nov. 28. The.
Middleburg tip-off time was
not known at press time.

WASIK
Continued from p. 7C

video footage of Wasik and
also got the chance to see her
play in person during the club
season. One thing that stood
out to Decker was the fact that
Wasik's enthusiasm never
waned during a match,
whether she was directly
involved in a play or not.
"She's got a lot of energy,"
Decker said.
Energy and power. Wasik,
an outside hitter, recorded 407
kills this past season and
finished her Keystone career
with 1,065 total kills-both
school records. She also set
school records for kills in a
game, kills-per-game average
during a season and attempts
in a game.
"When I first met her, I
knew she was going to be
pretty special," Conkling said.


"She had the best arm swing
that I had seen. Even in the
seventh-grade, she hit the ball
pretty hard."
Decker said Wasik has
decent size for an outside
hitter, but she will be facing
bigger blockers in college. The
goals, Decker said, are
"increasing her reach,
increasing her vertical and
adding more power to her
attack."
For her part, Wasik knows
that her game will have to
continue to improve.
"I definitely want to become
more of a consistent hitter and
a better defensive player," she
said. "I know that college is
going to be a whole different
level."
Having said that,, she's
looking forward to that
challenge.
"I'm just really excited,"
Wasik said. "I can't wait to
play there."


DRAG
Continued from p. 6C

"Pretty much all you've got
to do is pass tech, make sure
everything is legal in the car
by NHRA rules, pay your
entry fees and you're off
racing," Gunter said.
He not only entered a world
of competition, but one of
camaraderie and friendship.
Gunter said he has met a lot of
nice people at races who are
always willing to lend a
helping hand if another driver
has any kind of trouble.
However, you can make
people angry at you, as Gunter
learned early in his racing
career.
"I ran antifreeze-in my car,"
he said. "I happened to blow a
heater hose on the staging aiea.
They had to close the lane
down for two hours to clean up
my mess. I learned my lesson
from that."
As for his future, Gunter
said he hopes to run in an
upcoming event in either
Bradenton or Orlando, and he
would like to register his car
with NHRA.
"If I'm going to be out there
running. I might as well try to
gefinrate points and be able to
have a shot at going to the
division finals held in late
October." Gunter said.
He would also like save
enough money to go through
one of the driving schools in
Gainesville and eventually get
an NHRA license in the super
gas class.
- Racing has become..a big
part of his life-Gunter said
it's the only thing he does
besides work and spend time
with his children. The sport is
very addicting, he said, but he
has never' given much thought
to doing any other type of
racing. For him, drag racing is
it. .
"I do watch NASCAR on
TV," Gunter said, "but I'm not
too much on going around in a
circle."



Nature never quite goes
along with us. She is somber
at weddings, sunny at
funerals and she frowns on
99 out of 100 picnics.

Florida

announces

forestry

initiative
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced a new
public awareness initiative,
"Your Forest. Managed." This
initiative teams landowners
across the state with their
county forester to ensure the
future health of Florida's
forests.
This is the most
comprehensive outreach in the
'department's Division of
Forestry's 79-vear history and
,ill significantl', influence the
shaping of Florida's pr'.jtel\
ow ned forest' for decadess 1t
come
With Florida s populati'n-
e,.pected to exceed IS million
bN 2020. preparing priatelv.
oned forest lands to
accommodate an upcoming
record gro'.th rate is at the core
of the initiaui\e Currentil the
state loses 1,200 a fc'res _, forest
land per %week w ith
development expected to grow
b\ 40 percent during this time.
In addition, large acreage oft
land formerly owned b\ one
individual are being broken up
into smaller parcels and sold to
multiple owners. This
changing of hands is
introducing nex forest land
owners vwho ma\ not hate the
information necessary. to
properly manage their properrN
The increase in number and
variety of landowners has
required foresters to develop
innovati e j\ s to
communicate with a changing
and diverse group of people.
"Your Forest. Managed." is
designed to help Florida's
county foresters connect %% ith
the landowners in the districts
the\ ser\e. The centerpiece of
the campaign has been named,
"OAK." which stands for
Outreach Action Kit
OAK consists of a
comprehensive landowners'

Slocum had six of her team-
high 20 points in that opening
quarter, while Hill and Smith
each scored seven.
Smith and Hill finished the
game with 13 and 12 points,
respectively.


"At the heart of this
initiative is a desire to assist
Florida's forest land owners by
providing sound counsel on
how they can best manage their
land to.meet their individual
needs," Bronson said. "New
landowners need to. know that
the beautiful land they 'jur
bought won't stay that way on
its own. We can help."
Forests cover almost half of
Florida's total land area-more
than 16 million acres-and are
an important economic engine
in this state.
Private landowners own
more than half of that total
land and produce more than half
of Florida's raw timber supply.
As the state's top agribusiness,


the forest industry has a total
economic impact of $16.5
billion. Impacts on tourism
and recreation generate about
$6 billion and exports outside
the sate represent 50 percent of
total industry sales.
The Division of Forestry has
45 county foresters in 15
districts. Their job is to help
private non-industrial
landowners with 10 acres or
more develop land management
plans and execute proper
management practices.
To locate a forester in your
county vi sit
www.yourforestmanaged.com.
Florida's forests provide the
environment with clean air and
help reduce air pollution and


provide habitat for wildlife and
a diverse plant population. In
addition, forest lands are critical
to purifying our state's water
supply, providing a water
filtering system that affects the
drinking water of 90 percent of
Florida's population. Proper
forest land management is
critical to maintaining this
lifeline to the state.


It is only the constant
exertion and working of our
sensitive, intellectual, moral
and physical machinery that
keeps us from rusting, and so
becoming useless.
-Charles Simmons
