Non-instructional
employees also
received a raise

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
In a 4-0 vote, the Union
County School Board
approved the new salary
schedule for teachers and non-
instructional- employ-ees
Tuesday night. (School board
member Marsan Carr was
absent from the meeting).


With a bachelor's degree,
starting teachers will now
make $32,500. This is an 8.34
percent increase from. last
year's starting salary of
$30,000.
The Times article last week
incorrectly stated the increase
in salaries, saying this was
only a 6 percent raise, instead
of the actual 8.34 percent raise
that starting teachers will
receiVe. The-difference in pay_
is an increase of approximately
$2,606.


Superintendent Carlton
Faulk said the school board,
district staff and finance
director Mike Shockley had
worked hard to increase
teacher salaries.
"Since 2000, we have gone
from $22,000 to $32,500 for
beginning teachers," he said
after the board approved the
raises.
Shockley said this is
approximately a 35 percent
increase since 2002.
Board member Allen Parrish


said, "I'm glad our teachers can
see the full benefit of their
raises," noting that the board
absorbed the 11 percent
increase in health insurance
premiums for the next year.
With starting teacher salaries
going up, the salaries of other
teachers go up as well.
Shockley said the average
increase for a teacher overall
would be 6.06 percent.
Board member Sandra Floyd
said. the board kept its non-
instructional employees in


YMCA provides summer day camps for kids


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
The lack of a permanent
facility has not stopped the
YMCA from providing
programs to children in Union
County.
While the organization has
been growing in Bradford
County, soon to be getting its
own building, it is also
expanding in Union. It
currently offers an after-school
and a summer child care
program at the Lake Butler
Elementary School cafetorium.
During the summer, the
program started May 21 and is
open until Aug. 10, from 7
a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday
through Friday.
It costs $80 per week for
non-members and $75 for
members, for the full 11 hours.
Part-time care is provided for

A day all about dads

Father's Day is Sunday, June
17. Here are two profiles of
fathers iiTour area.--- -. .


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
He knew he would be a
father one day, but he didn't
really know if he'd be any
good at-it.
Jon Johnson is the nurse
practitioner at the family clinic
inside Lake Butler Hospital.
....A fellow employee said he
was. -the -kind-of- person -that
was very caring with the
patients and his own family.
Johnson and his wife, Kathy,
have two children: a daughter,
Lauren, and a son, J.D., who
are 10 and 6 years old.
Johnson was born in
Jacksonville and went on to do
his undergraduate work in
Hawaii. Graduate work
followed at the University of
Maryland.
Even though he takes care of
patients every day, Johnson
said it doesn't top his list.
He said, "It's clearly my
most important job, being a
dad and then a husband."
Fatherhood 'has changed
Johnson.
"I think we're much more
involved with our children," he
said.
He said his father missed
things in his life that he
couldn't imagine missing in his
own kids' lives.
"I think I learned how to be


a dad from older friends and
how they were with their
children," he said.
In fact, Johnson said the best
lessons on how to be a father
came from his wife.
"She's the most remarkable
parent," he said.
For his wife on Mother's
Day, he said the kids get up
early to eat ice cream and
desserts with her. No dads-
allowed.
For Father's Day, it will go
something like this.
Early in the morning,
Johnson said he expects his
children to come running in to
his room at 6 a.m.
Having shopped at the store
with the help of mom and
putting their own creativity to
work, Johnson said he gets a
combination of gifts.
"They're always so excited
about giving me their gifts," he
said. "The cards are usually
always made by the kids."
A T-shirt that refers to being
a dad is one of his regular
items, too.
Then after that excitement,
he said the day proceeds with a
movie.
"Our tradition on Father's
Day is usually to go to a
'daddy' movie, which is usually
a 'kiddie' movie," he said.
The movie of choice this

Hospital.

year: "The Fantastic Four."
As if spending the day with
his family and getting gifts
wasn't enough, Johnson said
his family takes him out for a
steak dinner to top it all off.,
Wanting to spend as much
time as he could with his
family, Johnson said he and his
wife started a lot of family
traditions; things he hopes will
continue as he continues to
grow as a father.



My father, my

boss
Father's Day is like most
days for Tom Jenkins Sr. He
spends time with his children.'
He and his wife, Karen, have
three adult children: Rebecca,
Tom and Jonathan.
When Jenkins started Tom
Jenkins Electrical Service in
June 2001, he asked his son
Tom, who had just graduated
from Union County High
School in May, if he wanted to
work with him.
Tom Jr. said yes, and that's
when the senior also become
the boss.
Later in 2003 when Jonathan
graduated, he also joined his
father's company.


When asked if it was
difficult having your dad also
be your boss, Jonathan said, "It
doesn't bother us. He's easy
going."
Of course, when your dad is
your boss, you can't really call
in sick.
Jenkins' sons said this was
especially true when they were
still living at home.
"He would just come in your
room and tell you to go to
work," Tom said.
Working harder is also
something Tom said he thinks
he does because his dad is
boss.
Jonathan joked that his dad
didn't pay him for last
Monday.
"You didn't work," Jenkins
simply said. "You don't work.
You don't get paid."
When the company first
started, Tom said he went
without pay for four months as
his father got the company
going, but it wasn't all bad.
"There are benefits of
working for your family," he
said.
With a staff of seven,
Jenkins said he now does
bidding for the company, and
he lets his sons and other
employees go out and do most
of the physical work.
See FATHERS, p. 2A


mind and tried to be fair to
them when approving raises.
For the 2007-2008 school
year, non-instructional
employees are set to receive,
on average, a 6 percent
increase in pay.
Editor's Note: Also in last
week's article on teacher pay
increases, it should be noted
that the differentiated pay
would be a one-time bonus and
does not become part of a
teacher's base pay, Shockley
said.
Differentiated pay could be
a one-time supplement of up to
$3,000 based on state and
district-determinedfactors.

Board receives
finding of annual
financial audit
At Tuesday's meeting, Clay
Lyons of Lyons and Lyons, an
accounting firm, presented the
findings of the school board's
annual internal fund audit for
fiscal'year 2006.
Lyons told the board the
report was good overall and
noted a general cash increase
of $4,000.
He did note some issues the
school district needed to work
on that, if corrected, would
decrease risk and liability of
the board if money should be
misused or misappropriated.
One finding was the lack of
separation of duties, such as
one person handling intake of
money who would also type
this data into the computer.
He said the district was
compensating with other
security measures, such as
requiring more than one
signature on checks.
"The control system is as
good as it can get with the staff
you have," he said,.
Ideally, the school board
would have more staff, but
Faulk said the board had to
weight the cost of hiring
additional people.
Another finding was the lack
of timely reconciliations.
Shockley said he had
already addressed this with
bookkeepers at the school to
make this a priority.
Lyons also suggested that
the school principals should
look at and examine finani m
statements from banks when
they come in the mail as an
additional security measure
and backup to the
bookkeepers.
Three accounts were
overdrawn, but none were of
significant amounts. The most
was the faculty fund at Lake
Butler Elementary School at
approximately $400. Lyons
said these types of internal
accounts should not be
overdrawn.
As an additional safeguard,
he also advised that the
number of keys to a
bookkeeper's office be limited
so access to money, financial
statements and personnel data
be limited.
"These are not terrible
findings," Lyons said. "You're.
doing a pretty good job."

Other measures the school
board approved 4-0 were:
The annual contracts
with the North East
Florida Educational
Consortium, including
testing services,
instructional services
programs, data
processing, risk
management and a
building code inspector.
Delia Sandquist to
provide
interpreter/instructional
services for students
with English as their
second language.
Sharon Mooneyham to
provide gifted services
at Union County High
School.
Advertising for several
teaching positions,
including the LBMS
agriculture teacher (this
replaces Scott Register
who resigned to help
with his family
business, according to
Faulk).

"We get the jobs, and they
go do it," Jenkins said.
"They're in their own world."
The Jenkins' work mostly on
larger projects, from sewer
plants to water plants to pump
stations.


Tom finished a five-year
electrical trade school in
Gainesville, and Jonathan is
now going through the
program, as their dad did when
he went to be a electric
_journeyman.
Jenkins left for a vacation on
Monday this week. During his
interview Friday he said, "The
only disadvantage of being a
small employer is if you want
to go somewhere, you lose half


of your workforce."
Jenkins said he mostly just
spends time with his sons ana
daughter on Father's Day, not
expecting big gifts. If he does
get gifts, they're usually gift
cards for tools.
"It's just part of life,"
Jenkins said. "They grow up
and move on."
Sitting at his parents' dining
room table, Tom said, "We
might have moved out, but

brother agreed.
Both sons said their dad was
never big on discipline.
"Pops is laid back," Jonathan
said.
But make no mistake, Tom
and Jonathan said they always
were taught how to be men and
fathers.
Jonathan said, "He taught us
responsibility and how to be
the head of the
household-taking care of the
family."
These are things Jonathan
and Tom use now that they are
both fathers themselves.
On Father's Day, the two
spend half of the day with their
dad and the other half with
their own families. They might
all go out to eat or spend time
white water rafting on the
river.
"You've got to make time,"
Jonathan said of spending time
with his family.
Jenkins is from Lake Butler
originally and spent eight years
in the military. He is also a
grandfather of four, with one
more on the way.
His wife, Karen, of 29 years
said, "I think he's been a good-
dad for our boys, for our
children."

The Union County branch of
the YMCA has been open for
approximately two years, and
site director Samantha Mabrey
has worked there for one and a
half years.
Compared to ,her other job
with the Department of
Corrections, she said, "This. a
breath of fresh air."
Mabrey said she enjoys
spending time with the kids
and providing something more
than just a babysitting service.:
The Y has a set curriculum
that teaches core values. These
are faith, respect,
responsibility, caring and
thonesiy.. ] i 'i
While at the YMCA,
children play outside, play
games inside and do crafts,
structured games and other fun
projects.
Mabrey said, "There are
different age groups for
games," she said, "so every


child can play with their own
,age level."
Every Wednesday
participants are taken on field
trips, which can range from the
YMCA-owned Poe Springs to
the Jacksonville Zoo. Every
Friday is a trip to the pool for
swimming at the YMCA in
Lake City.
Counselors take half-day
shifts, with three counselors on
duty in the morning and three
on duty in the evening.
"If the number of children
increases, so will the number
of counselors," Mabrey said.,
This keeps a consistent 15
children to one counselor ratio.
All of the organization's
counselors are first aid and
CPR certified and have to
undergo what Mabrey called "a
rigorous background check."
Volunteers also are required to
have background checks.
Employees must also attend
an orientation and go to
training three times a yeai':

Warm weather, community drew city manager to Lake Butler


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
When city of Lake Butler
manager Richard Tillis retires
at the end of August, city
manager designee John
Berchtold will take the reins.
Berchtold knows he has big
shoes to fill but feels he is up
to the challenge.
In the past 30 years,
Berchtold has been in eight
different municipal
management positions. He
oversaw towns ranging from
1,500 people to his last job as
an administrator of a county
with 62,000 people.
The majority of his career,
though, has been spent in
Michigan in towns with less
than 10,000 people. He also
served in Pennsylvania.
Berchtold grew up in Yedon,
Penn., and when he was
younger thought his career
path might lead him into the
ministry.
When he was around 10 or
11 years old, his mom was a
reporter for a newspaper,
where she covered town
meetings.
"I really got interested in the
community," he said.


When he graduated high
school, he went to a
community college, and then
obtained his bachelor's degree
in business administration
from Temple University. He
went on to earn a master's
degree in management from
Central Michigan University.
This led to his jobs in
government positions. He
spent a year and a half working
for a nonprofit organization, as
well.
Berchtold was the executive
director for an association for
deaf people in Michigan.
He had never known anyone
who was deaf and said the
experience was an "eye
opener."
"It was kind of refreshing,"
he said, to see things from the
nonprofit side. He even
lobbied on the behalf of the
group.
However, he couldn't stay
away from government work
for long.
"I missed it," he said.
Berchtold and his wife,
Brenda, have four kids. All are
adults with the youngest one
now in college.
Being empty nesters,
Berchtold said he and his wife


John Berchtold
decided it was time for a
change. He was selectively
looking for a job.
"We were going to make
one more move, and it was
going to be somewhere warm,"
he said.
That's when he saw an
advertisement for the city
manager position in Lake
Butler.
After coming to the city for.
a face-to-face interview, the
city commissioners voted to
hire him, and Berchtold
accepted.


He said he and his wife did
not even consider south
Florida as an option.
"We're happy to be here ...
in north Florida," he said,
noting the perfect mix of
palms and pines.
"We loved this location," he
said.
Lake Butler provides that
rural atmosphere, but still has
shopping and other attractions
close by in Gainesville and
Jacksonville.
He is buying a house, while
his wife went back to
Michigan to try to sell the
home there. She has her
teaching certificate, but works
in community relations for a
hospital, and Berchtold said
she may look toward a
different career when she gets
to Florida.
Besides their children, they
also have three dogs: Duke, a
130-pound Australian
shepherd, Winston, a 5-pound
chihuahua, and Baxter, an 11-
pound chihuahua.
Berchtold is working
alongside Tillis to gradually
familiarize himself with the
inner workings of the city
manager's job.
S"This idea of overlap ... it's


been a great idea," Berchtold
said. "This has a lot of
ingredients for success."
He said being at City Hall
until he takes over on Sept. 1
has given him a chance to
learn the "flavor of the
community."
"It's been really beneficial,"
he said.
The new city manager said
he will have an open-door
policy with city employees and
the public.
"We'll be accessible to
people,' he said.
He also wants to get along
well with his staff and said he
will work hard to help each
employee grow to his or her
full potential.
The city of Lake Butler has
several major projects coming
in its future: the new fire
station, taking control of the
RMC waste water treatment
facility and constructing the
Union Depot Trailhead Park
,(as part of the Rails to Trails
program).
Berchtold said he does not
feel intimidated as a newcomer
on these projects.
"That's one of the benefits of
working with Mr. Tillis," he
said. "A lot of the same ways
he approaches a problem, I

State aims to
improve
prenatal
health
Florida is launching a new
public information campaign
this week to promote
completion of the Healthy
Start risk screening, the
gateway into the Healthy Start
program, which is designed to
improve the health of pregnant
women in the state and reduce
infant mortality rates.
The campaign-which
includes television and radio
public service announcements,
billboards, printed reminders
in doctors' offices and
participant testimonials-was
developed by the Florida
Department of Health to raise
awareness of the importance of
Healthy Start risk screenings
and "ensure that every baby in
Florida has a Healthy Start."
The campaign begins this
week and is expected to run
through Aug. 31.
. The Department.of Health's
Healthy Start program, in
partnership with 32 local
Healthy Start coalitions, has
been promoting healthy
pregnancies and infant care
since 1991 and has since
reduced the number of babies
who die before their first
birthday by 23 percent.
According to campaign
coordinators, filling out a
prbiiatal risk screening form is
the simplest way to identify
factors that place an expectant
mother at risk for
complications such as having a
pre-term or low birth weight
baby. All pregnant women
should request the prenatal
screening form at their first
prenatal visit.
An infant risk screening.
form-completed just after
childbirth and before leaving
the hospital-can help identify
conditions that may lead to
poor infant developmental
outcomes in the baby's first
year of life.
The statewide campaign to
promote Healthy Start risk
screenings encourages women
of child-bearing age to talk
with their healthcare
providers-including nurses,
physicians and
midwives-about, the
screening forms and factors
that may increase health risks.
"While all healthcare
providers are required by law
to offer their expectant patients
the form, not all do," -said
Mary Jo Plews, president of
the Florida Association of
Healthy Start Coalitions. "We
hope, this campaign empowers
women to be proactive, to ask
for the completion of a very
simple form that may ensure
their babies have a healthy
start in life."
Of the 315,187 Healthy Start
screenings completed in
Florida in 2005, 120,652
women and infants were
identified as at-risk and
eligible for Florida's Healthy


Start program.
The Healthy Start screening
campaign is funded by the
Florida Department of Health
and coordinated by Group 5 &
Associates, a Gainesville-
based advertising agency. To
learn more about the campaign
and Healthy Start risk
screenings, please call (800)
451-BABY (2229), or visit
www.healthystartbaby.com.

He was very complimentary
of Tillis, who has been
manager for the last 11 years.
"Mr. Tillis has done a.great
job for the city," Berchtold
said.
"Mr. and Mrs. (Dayle) Tillis
are great ambassadors of the
city."
As with the Tillises and the
city employees, Berchtold said
the community has been quick
to welcome him and his wife.
He said everyone has been
overly helpful, before and after
he was hired.
Berchtold also joined the
Rotary Club of Lake Butler
and will be inducted on
Tuesday.
In his spare time, he likes to
garden and wants to see which
plants will do best in the
Florida heat-compared to the
winters of Michigan.
"It's something I never
thought I'd be interested in," he
said.
He looks forward to going to

Farmers offer herbs, diverse crops


BY JACQUE BREMAN
Special to the Times
The Union County Farmers'
Market just became more
diverse in the agricultural
products offered on Saturday
mornings.
We have a new farmer who
grows herbs, in addition to
unusual varieties of vegetables.
Our supporting, regular
farmers have also been
bringing a wide variety of
produce.
Sweet corn is starting to


come in, so be sure to be at the
market early if you want some.
Squashes of all kinds are
available. Cucumbers,
cantaloupes and melons were
in also at the last market.
Locally grown tomatoes
continue, as well as okra. So
many different kinds of
produce are at the farmers'
market that they can't all be
listed.
The best way to see what is
available is to go to the market


on Saturday mornings, from 8
a.m. until noon, and see for
yourself. Most of our farmers
are certified to accept Farmers'
Market Nutrition Program and
Elder Care coupons.

Jacque Breman is the
director of the University of
Florida Union County
Extension Office. He has a
Ph.D. in plant genetics,
agronomy.


Josh Smith's barn in Providence is empty because of the lack of hay crop this
year. Normally the barn would be full of hay from his first spring cutting. Most
farmers have had to feed their hay to their cattle, because the drought hurt
pastures so much there was little to graze. Their hay would have been normally
sold as a cash crop, with only a small amount of hay being supplemented to
cattle on winter rye pastures. That didn't happen this year; little winter pasture
was available so farmers carried cattle through with hay, said extension director
Jacque Breman.

Drought: Hazardous to your crop's health


BY JACQUE BREMAN
Special to the Times
Although we have received
some rain in Union County,
the economic and biologic
effects of the drought are not
over with yet.
According to a presentation
on June 4 by a director of the
South Florida Water
Management District, this has
been the third deepest drought
since 1895. The effects of the
2005-2007 drought on surface
and ground water supplies is
not over with.
In Union County, all of our
agriculture has been affected.
Commercial forests-at one
time covering 60 percent of
our acreage and accounting for
millions of dollars in revenue
and many local jobs-have
been impacted.
According to the.last Census

Prepare for the
hurricane season
The National Oceanic &


of Agriculture (taken in 1997),
Union County agriculture (not
including forestry) generated
total sales of more than $11
million. Agriculture is still a
large part of our economy and
it has all been hurt by the
drought.
Union County vegetable
producers have been prevented
from planting and have
incurred reduced yields, even
under irrigation. Beef cattle
producers have had to reduce
herds because hay and pasture
resources were exhausted this
spring.
Hay producers have lost
harvests, and their hay fields
need another season of normal
rainfall and. fertilization to
recover pre-drought levels of
productivity.
The extension office has
sent information to farmers via


Atmospheric Administration
Climate Prediction Center is
forecasting a more-active-than-
normal Atlantic hurricane
season this year.
According to NOAA, there
is a 75 percent chance there
will be.13 to 17 named storms
of which three to five will be
major hurricanes (category 3
or higher)..
For residents of storm-prone
areas, using chain saws, power
generators and other pieces of
outdoor power equipment can
help to get back to normal life
-quickly and easily after the
storm. The keys to cleaning up
after a storm are being
prepared before the storm hits
and using equipment in a safe,
proper manner. The Outdoor
Power Equipment Institute
Education & Research
Foundation offers these
reminders:
Make sure you have the
right equipment to handle
post-storm clean up.
Check existing equipment
to make sure it's in good
working order.
SGet repairs done in
advance of a storm or
consider purchasing new
equipment.
Consult the owner's
manual for maintenance
and safety warnings.
Make sure there is enough
fuel and that it is stored
properly.
For chain saw use, make
sure you have gloves, and
eye and ear protection.
After the storm
For generator operation:
Do not operate power
generators in enclosed

information we have received,
Union County farmers need to

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




Vaughan takes jokes in stride for serious project


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
He was accused of having a
job that required him to do
little work. His golf game was
ridiculed, as was his love for
his alma mater's football team.
He was taken to task by his
father-in-law and even had
cracks made about him by his
own pastor.
It sounds like Terry
Vaughan was having a bad
day, but nothing could be
further from the truth as he
was surrounded by friends at
an event that raised
approximately $6,000 for the
Kiwanis Kids Zone of the new
Bradford County public
library.
Vaughan, the Bradford
County supervisor of elections,
was roasted as part of a
Kiwanis Club of Starke fund-
raiser. All the money raised
from ticket sales will go
toward the club-sponsored
children's area of the soon-to-
be-opened library, plus several
of Vaughan's professional
colleagues got together and
donated another $1,850, which
was presented to club president


Cheryl Canova by Bill Cowles,
the Orange County supervisor
of elections.
"This is a tremendous
surprise," said Vaughan, who
is also chair of the library
advisory committee.
That was-surely one ofthe
highlights of the evening.
Another, judingby the crowd's
response, was when Vaughan's
father-in-law, Bill Nix, took
his turn as roaster.'He played
the part of dissatisfied father-
in-law well,.making fin of his
son-in-law's appearance,
suggesting Vaughan's former
moustache made him looI like
a cross between Adolph Hi-tler
and Groucho Marx, and
suggesting --he- wished his
daughter Jennifer hadhoolked\
up with someone else.
"When Terry first came
around our house about 23
years ago, I thought he would
be like all the other guys-
gone in two weeks," Nix said.
"It didn't happen.
"Jennifer finally got around
to asking what I thought of
Terry. I said I'd think a lot
more of him if he was dating
someone else's daughter. It


Terry Vaughan (left)laughs at something said by his
father-in-law, Bill Nix.


A group of supervisors of elections contributea to the are: Vaughan, Liz Horne (Columbia County supervisor),
fund-raiser by making a donation of $1,850. The Susan Gill (Citrus County supervisor), Babs Montpetit
supervisors Who were present at the roast presented (Union County supervisor), Penny Halyburton (St.

didn't happen."
Nix went on to say that
when it became obvious his
daughter was going to marry
Vaughan, he held out hope that
they would move away to a
bigger town. Guess what?
That's right., "It didn't
happen."
Afterward, Vaughan said,
"They say you can pick your
nose and you can pick your
friends, but you can't pick
your family. When you think
about it, you can pick your
father-in-law. What was I
thinking?"
Vaughan had his chance to
respond to each of his roasters,
which ensured there were
jokes aplenty throughout the'
event. For example, Vaughan,
after hearing Steve Denmark's
remarks, told everyone in
attendance he would be
handing out coupons good for
25 percent off at Rooms to Go
(Denmark owns Denmark
Furniture in Starke).
Vaughan did not even hold
back when it came to
addressing his pastor, Mike
Hutcherson of .First United
Methodist Church of Starke.

to honor our fathers. It has special
significance to me because I'm allowed to

"Many of you know I have
trouble with insomnia except
for about 30 minutes each
Sunday," Vaughan said.
Insomnia is not Vaughan's
only trouble. Judging by
several of the roasters'
remarks, Vaughan has quite a
bit of trouble playing golf or,
to be more precise, keeping
his ball in play.
Hutcherson said one day
Vaughan was constantly losing
his ball. It ended up in the
woods, in the swamp or under
a rock all day long. Someone
asked Vaughan why he didn't
just give up chasing down that

Bradford commissioners fear tax cuts


Bradford County Commissioners
are expecting a mandate to reduce
.county operating costs as result of a
special session of the Legislature that
began this week.
The general consensus is that the
Legislature will change the formula
for determining tax amounts by
increasing exemptions and rolling
back current assessments. During the
regular session, Rep. Marco Rubio
introduced a bill to reduce county tax
revenues and replace the lost revenue
with an increased sales tax, but the
bill failed for lack of agreement.
Legislators apparently agree that
the cost of county government has
increased at a faster rate than the rate'
of inflation, and will attempt to bring
the two figures together during the
special session.
Bradford County Commissioner
John Cooper says the county has been
cognizant of the situation for the past
18 months, but he doesn't think the
cost of running Bradford County has
exceeded the inflation rate. However,
Bradford commissioners have already
advised constitutional officers and
department heads to scale back their
funding requests for Fiscal Year 2007-
08 by 6 percent and will revisit their
advice when the Legislature makes a
final decision.
Cooper says the members of
Small County Coalition, most of
which are located in the Florida
panhandle, already provide only
base governmental services to their
residents, and reductions in spending
won't be easy without cutting into
essential services. Constitutional
officers were dismayed by the request
to reduce spending, saying they
already operate a "tight ship," and any
-'e6ductiifon :'i operation budgets will
necessitate a reduction in services to
the people they serve.
County officials are in a quandary,
wondering where budget cuts can be
made without reducing personnel, but
if substantial reductions are made by
the Legislature, heads will roll. Sheriff
Bob Milner is frank in saying that
a 6 percent reduction in his budget,
requested by commissioners, will
equate to the loss of four positions in
his office.
County Clerk Ray Norman says
his office spends tax funds in three
areas, personnel, office supplies and
maintenance agreements. He has.
one unfilled position in his budget
which will remain unfilled, thereby
reducing his budget slightly. He has
not decided on other possible areas to
reduce his operating costs.
Clay County commissioners have
advised their manager, Fritz Behring,
to fashion a budget that could lower
property taxes by as much as 20 percent
in an effort to roll back millage from
$8.75 per $1,000 in taxable property


to $7 per mill. Behring said, "The real
party does not begin now. This is just
the first dance." His reference was
to the Legislature passing tax reform
this year, then having voter approval
on the ballot in January 2008, which
would affect the next budget.
Bradford County general fund
budgets are shown for the years 2001-
2007, which are not only the amounts
generated by ad valorem taxes, but
represent the amounts the county
commissioners authorized the various
departments to spend, based on an
estimate of expected income from
real estate taxes. Any unencumbered
money left in accounts at the end of
the fiscal year (Sept. 30) reverts to the
general fund.

Obviously, the budgeted amounts
represent an excess of county budgets
over and above the inflation rate
which hovers around 3.5 percent per
year. County commissioners have
their work cut out for them; it may be
an impossible chore.
Cooper points out that millage was
lowered from 10 mills in 2004 to 9.5
mills for the next three years, and
lowered to 9.3756 for 2007. Revenue
for the seven-year period has increased
from (2000) $5.867 million to (2006)
$7.689 million because property
values in the county have increased
through property evaluations and new
construction.
Cooper has a valid point, but the fact'
remains, expenditures increase each
year to absorb increased revenues.
Admittedly, fund balances have also
increased nearly $2 million (to $4.4
million) during the same period, which
represents an increase in surplus, a
plus for county management.

changes
Dear Editor:
Recently I was visiting my
family in Starke. I was so
excited to see downtown
Starke. The new restaurants and
new facades are fantastic.
I took the opportunity to eat
at The Sugar Tree and so
enjoyed myself. I will be
visiting in the near future and
will make a point to check out
Whale Tales, Charlotte's Bistro
and all the other new places in
town.
I am a former merchant of
downtown Starke and I am so
proud of downtown merchants
and happy for their success. I
think downtown Starke offers
that wonderful main street
shopping experience that
everyone is looking for these
days.
Just wanted to let downtown
merchants know that their
efforts are so appreciated and I
will support them everytime I
am in town.

You can make
a change only
at the voting
booth
Dear Editor:
The cross has been removed
from the water tower in Starke
and there is a sign along the
highway that a lot of people
don't like. According to current
interpretation of the law, the
cross had to be removed from
government owned property.
Whether or not that
interpretation of the law is
either valid or fair is beside the
point, because the rule of law
must prevail.
The same is true of the sign
advertising an adult only
facility in Waldo. It does not
contain any verbiage that is
either pornographic or in any
other way illegal.
The real effect on the
community as a whole is
probably very little, if any.
Surely the Christian segment
of our population hasn't
changed their collective minds
Sabout God''aid' Jesus because
the cross came down "and
certainly a sign that is no more
suggestive than 90 percent of
current television fare is not
going to hurt anyone either.,
As for the children, trying to
hide reality from them is not
going to teach them to live in
the real world. In my humble
opinion, teaching them about
the realities of the world and
the effect that those realities
will have on their welfare is a
much better way to deal with
the problem.
The real problem is not that
the law was followed, but it is
that there have been so many
liberal interpretations of the
law in a country that was
founded based on religious
principles so deeply held that


our money carries the
statement "In God we Trust,"
plus many other similar
references to God in so many
public edifices in Washington.
The fact is that recent events
in our county indicate that the
secular/humanist movement
that has been insidiously
permeating our government for
the past 50 or more years is
alive and well. The movement
in fact is gaining strength.
God has been attacked over
and over by the liberal
politicians and judges that we
elect and/or appoint. In my
opinion these people have
looked to an often used
statement that in fact is not
viable. They say as loudly as
possible that the authors of our
constitution mandated that
there should be a definite
separation between church and
state.

The Constitution of the
United States says nothing of
the kind. It simply states that
congress shall not be allowed
to establish one particular
religion as a state religion.
The exact wording of the
first amendment is as follows:
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof; or abridging
the freedom of speech, or of the
press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to
petition the government for a
redress of grievances."
The only way to bring about
a change is at the voting booth
and by contacting your senators
and representatives. You can
also get involved at the grass
roots level with the party of
your choice to locate and
promote good candidates at the
local level. You can help if


you so desire.

Roast victim
says 'thanks'
Dear Editor:
Several weeks ago, I received
a phone call from Steve
Denmark, the fund-raising
chairman for the Kiwanis Club
of Starke, of which I am a
proud member.
"Terry," Denmark paid, "the
Kiwanis Board met today and
decided to put together a fund-
raiser for the new library."
"Great news," I responded.
"As chairman of the Library
Advisory Board, I am thrilled
we are doing this. What type of
fund-raiser did you have in
mind?"
"A roast," was his answer.
"Good idea. Who do you
plan to roast," I naively asked.
"You," was Denmark's
succinct reply.
I almost fell out of my chair.
Under the leadership of
President Cheryl Canova, the
Kiwanis Club has agreed to
fund the furnishings for the
children's reading room in the
new library, to be known as
the "Kiwanis Kids Zone."
This effort will provide a
tremendous boost in the battle
against illiteracy.
While a bit embarrassed, I
proudly served-as the victim at
the roast last Saturday evening
at the Starke Golf and Country
Club.
It was an evening of fun,
fellowship and laughter. Nearly
$6,000 was raised for the
children's reading room.
Again, thanks to all who
made this possible.

CRIME


Putnam man
found guilty
murder, arson
A 43-year-old Florahome
man was sentenced to life in
prison for the 2004 murder of
his girlfriend.
Randy Wayne Seal was
indicted Sept. 29, 2004, for
the murder of Tscharna
Hampton. The trial was
delayed until last month when
a jury found Seal guilty of
first-degree murder and first-
degree arson.
On Jan. 3, 2004, Putnam
County firefighters responded
to a residential fire on North
Holly Avenue in Florahome.
The fire was in a converted
shed on Seal's family!property
where he and Hampton
sometimes lived.
After firefighters
extinguished the blaze,
deputies found Hampton's
body inside the building. An
intense scene investigation by
detectives from the Florida
State Fire Marshal's Office
(SFM) revealed the fire had
been intentionally set and
Hampton died as a result of the
fire.
Seal told investigators he
and Hampton had been at the
residence drinking. Seal said he
left to go to his parents'
residence, which is on the
same property, while Hampton
went to the bathroom. He was
with his parents when he
learned that the structure was

(904) 964-7500


on fire and that Hampton was
still inside, according to
Sheriff Taylor Douglas.
Seal's public defender and
attorneys maintained the fire
was accidental.
The jury disagreed. On May
24, Seal was found guilty of
the murder and the fire. He was
sentenced to life in prison
without parole, according to
Assistant State Attorney
Matthew Cline.
Hampton, who was a
registered nurse in the area,
was employed at Shands Starke
at one time.
Her children live in the
Keystone Heights area.
Former coworkers said she
was an awesome nurse and was
really missed.

Road rage
gets man
arrested
in Starke
An Orange Park man was
arrested June 6 in Starke for
road rage.
The victim stated he was
northbound on U.S. 301 when
the driver of a white van yelled
at him, "Get that piece of
....off the road." (The victim
stated his pickup was smoking
real bad.)
The victim stated the driver
of the van then pointed a gun at
him, according to Patrolman
Michelle Davis. The victim
called police and followed the
van, Patrolman Davis said.
The driver of the van, Jeffery
David Weigand, did have a gun
with a permit. Weigand stated
the gun. was in his lap. The
officer concluded the van
window was to high for the
victim to see the gun in
Weigand's lap and he was
placed under arrest.
Weigand was charged with
aggravated assault. A $15,000
surety bond was posted for his
release from custody.

Carol Milner (right) sets a Spongebob Squarepants
cookie jar in front of Terry Vaughan. Vaughan has
been taking a fair amount of grief since he was
spied wearing Spongebob Squarepants pajamas in
the hospital.


as positive and happy as
Vaughan. Wilson's response?
"For God's sake, the man
doesn't work for a living. Let's
be honest here. He's
accountable one day every four
years."
Hutcherson added, "Terry's
been in public service for
many years. Some day he
wants to get a real job."
Maybe when Vaughan gets a
real job, he will buy himself a
pair of adult pajamas. The
story came out during the roast.
that Vaughan, during a
hospital stay, was presented
with a pair of pajamas to wear
by his wife. They were
Spongebob Squarepants
pajamas.
Mark Anderson, the Bay
County supervisor of elections
whose son was in the hospital
at the same time, saw Vaughan
wearing them. Ever since,
Anderson has been sending
Spongebob Squarepants
paraphernalia.
Spongebob was present at
the roast, thanks to Milner,


who produced a Spongebob
lunchbox, stress reliever and
cookie jar. Then, several of the-
audience members donned
Spongebob masks, which had
been handed out prior .to the
roast.
Regardless of what kind of
pajamas Vaughan wears, the
roasters all expressed their
admiration for him when they
were done making jokes at his
expense. Vaughan, who enjoys
a good laugh as much as
anyone, was gracious at the
event's conlcusion, thanking
everyone for their friendship
and their desire to help support


the library project.
"I'm a very rich person
-because -of-friends like you,;
he said.

There was plenty of
laughter at the event.
RIGHT: Steve Denmark
has a chance to enjoy
the program during a
break from his emcee
duties (he was also one
--- of the roasters).
BELOW: This happy trio
consists of (1-r) Jim
Buehnie, Sylvia Tatum
and Ann Wilson.


ROAST
Continued from p. 1B

particular ball. Hutcherson said
Vaughan replied that he
couldn't because "it's my
lucky ball."
"If golf is relaxing, he tells
me you're not playing it right.
He must be playing it right,"
Hutcherson said, adding that
Vaughan might want to take
up bowling-it's not as easy to
lose the balls.
Denmark drew laughs while
painting the image of Vaughan
wearing $100 pants and $150
shoes while "walking, through
a snake-infested swamp
looking for a $1.25 golf ball."
Roaster Scott Wilson, the
former head football coach at
Bradford High School, said,
"If you play golf with Terry,
you'll see parts of Bradford
County you never knew
existed."
Vaughan must have felt like
the only bad golfer in the
room, as well as the only FSU
fan. His love of the Seminoles
was fair game, with people like
Canova offering up jokes like
this: "What do you get when
you cross a pig with a
Seminole? Nothing, because
there are some things even a
pig won't do."
Canova also had fun at
Vaughan's expense when she
recalled a time when he played
in a community volleyball
league. She said she and others
would try to guess what
Vaughan would wear to the
gym, then added that it wasn't
that hard to do. His entire
ensemble-shorts, shirt, socks,
shoes, headband and
wristbands-displayed his
FSU pride.
"Our only question was,
what kind of underwear is
Terry wearing," Canova said.
"On second thought, we even
knew his jockstrap was signed


by Bobby Bowden."
Speaking of things signed by
Bobby Bowden, Vaughan has
a photo of himself and the
legendary coach that is signed
by Bowden hanging in his
office. In fact, he has a lot of
FSU items in his office, much
to the chagrin of Amanda
Seyfang, a University of
Florida graduate who is the
deputy supervisor of elections.
She said she had an idea to
raise even more funds for the
library project-auctioning off
Vaughan's FSU memorabilia.
That included the
aforementioned photo.
"I can understand someone
wanting a picture of Bobby
Bowden," said Carol Milner,
the chief deputy supervisor of
elections, "but why would they
want a picture of Terry and
Bobby Bowden?"
Seyfang had the remedy for
that as she produced a pair of
scissors and proceeded to cut
Vaughan out of the picture
(surely it was a copy of the
original photograph; Vaughan
did not seem to be too
alarmed).
There were several jokes
that were political in nature
because of Vaughan's job.
Denmark cracked thathe heard
Al Gore was going to be in the
area at the time of the roast
and offered, him an invitation
to be one if the roasters. Gore
agreed, Denmark said, "but
when he found out Terry was a
supervisor of elections, he said
it would be a cold day in hell
before he'd come."
"You know, with the
situation with global warming,
that's probably going to be a
long time," Denmark said.
Other roasters hinted at the
fact that maybe supervisors of.
elections don't really have a
lot to do. Hint? OK, they just
came right out and said it.
Wilson said his wife, Ann,
asked him how he would be
able to say anything negative
about someone who's always


Several members of the
crowd donned
Spongebob
Squarepants masks,
including Phalbe
Henriksen, the director
of the Bradford County
public library.

.Custom bikes put local


attorney on road of fun


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Motorcycles he owns have
appeared on television shows
and in magazines, and have
done well at shows.
That's nice, but it is not the
reason Terry Brown is
interested in custom-made
motorcycles.
"It's just a hobby," he said.
"It's no big deal."
That hobby for Brown, a
Starke attorney, began four
years ago. Just as there is a
lengthy process to building a
bike (see related story on Jason
Smith), Brown, too, went
through a process of finding
the right people to build his
bikes.
"Chopper mania" had kicked
in, Brown said, and he wanted
to have his own chopper built.
He said he first went to a man
who was just breaking into the
business. Brown described the
man's business as "fly-by-
night," and the venture did not
last.
"Ultimately, I had to cancel
the order and eventually had to
sue him to get my money
back;" Brown said.
Then it was from one
extreme to another, Brown
said. He went to a company
that had garnered much
recognition for building bikes.
The only problem was Brown
had little input in how the bike
would be built. What he got
Was a bike that didn't fit him
very well, he said.
;.Brown finally did get a
chopper to his liking when he
discovered Coast 2 Coast in
Orlando.
"Finally, I found these guys
down- there in Orlando who


would do it the way I wanted it
done and with what I needed,"
he said. "I've learned from the
experience."
What was important in his
relationship with Coast 2 Coast
was the fact Brown was
allowed -to describe how he
wanted the bike to look.
"They made it happen," he
said.
Some of those bikes the
company built for Brown
wound up receiving attention, ..
..The first-bike- the company


built for Brown placed first
overall at a custom motorcycle
show in Louisville, Ky., as
well as being featured on an
ESPN show.
"I just sold that one a couple
of months ago," Brown said.
"It was time to move on, but L
still miss it."
The custom motorcycle
Brown said he likes the most is
one he still owns. That bike,
which has appeared on the
Speed Channel's V-Twin
show, is unique because it has
a Weber carburetor from a
Porsche 911.
"I actually found an old
carburetor on E-bay," Brown
said. "I liked it, so we built a
motorcycle to go around the
carburetor."
That idea of Brown's
worked.out well, but not every
idea pans out. He said some
ideas a person may form in his
or her head don't look good
when they actually appear on a
bike, for example, but one of
the main factors affecting what
works or doesn't work is
practicality. As Bro" n put it,
he does not want a bike that
exists for the sole purpose of
being trailered from one sho\\
to another.
"It's got to be something
you can ride on a daily basis,"
he said.
Brown may not have time to
ride every day, but he does try
to ride every week, he said. It's
a way of escaping life's
stresses.
""'-.or me,.- it gives me ah
attitude adjustment where I can
just forget about the problems
and pressures of work and the
job and all that type of stuff;"
See BROWN, p. 11C


Jason Smith of Knuckle Draggers Motorcycles and Accessories of Starke works on
a bobber motorcycle for customer Terry Brown.



Passion for motorcycles


is time-consuming affair


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A couple of weeks ago,
Jason Smith was in the midst
of building a motorcycle for
Terry Brown whose plans are
to show it off in this
weekend's Starke Bike
Festival. At that time, Smith
said he did not expect the gas
tank for the bike to arrive until
just before the event.
He admitted that would be
cutting it close, but it was
nothing he didn't expect.
Building motorcycles takes
time.
"It's about a six-month
process," Smith said. "It's not
just something you can do-
overnight. If you want to do it
overnight, you just buy a kit
bike and assemble it out of a
box."
Smith has been building
bikes for approximately three
years, and for the last year has
done so at Knuckle Draggers
Motorcycles and' Accessories,
the Starke business he co-owns
with two other people. His
passion for. motors cles.
'however, goes back even
further.
"I've just always enjoyed
working on them and building
them," Smith said. "I've
actually worked on them my


whole life."
Working on motorcycles is
one thing. Building them from
the frame up is another. There
are several challenges. For
example, if something does not
fit that a particular customer
wants on his or her bike, well,
then Smith has to fabricate
something that will make it fit,
he said.
Sometimes an idea, once it
becomes a reality, does not
look as it was envisioned, so
that may entail more changes.
"All the way until the end,
you're going to be changing
parts," Smith said.
The real challenge;.lies in
building a bike that is unique,
yet still functions as a


motorcycle.


"There isn't any sense in
building a bike you can't ride,"
Smith said. "The whole:
enjoyment of it, once you get it
built, is to actually get out
there and ride it."
.Take the bike he was
working on for Brown-a
bobber (a bike in which all
non-essential parts are
removed). This motorcycle has
a soft-tail-as opposed to the
usual rigid-frame, miniature
shocks instead of coil springs
and a larger engine. Smith said
a bobber, typically has an 80-
cubic-inch engine, but the one
-he installed in Brown's bike is
131 cubic inches.,
"It's just a huge motor to be

TIME TO REASSESS?


We all know that homes in
many markets across the coun-
try experienced substantial
gains in appreciation over the
last few years of heated real
estate activity. While sale
prices are currently leveling
out,; ou may ha\ e experience";
"sticker shock" t \ ou recently
got a property. ta\ assessment
that shot way up.
As a matter of fact, property
tax collections across the nation
were up 35% from 2002 to
2006 (U.S. Census Bureau).
That's twice the growth of per-
sonal income, spurring some 15
states to consider tax-cut pro-
posals.
If you don't want to wait for
new legislation, you can simply
"act locally," and challenge
your tax bill. It's not a hopeless
case, because the American


Homeowners Association
(AHA) estimates that 60% of
homes are in fact assessed too
high.
Don't march down to the
Assessor's office until you've
checked your property data
card for errors. Are the number
of bedrooms and baths correct
Finished or unfinished base-
ment? ,Lot size? Assessments
are often based on replacement
cost or what your home would
sell for, so check with your
insurance policy and real estate
transaction records to deter-
mine if those figures are in line
with what your tax bill states.
Not enough homeowners
bother to make a challenge, but
70% of those who document
and report errors manage to
lower their tax bill (AHA). It's
well worth a look.

JROTC cadets enjoy camaraderie, activities of camp


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Camp Shands at the Baden
Powell Scout Reservation
between Melrose and
Hawthorne is not a military
base, yet the JROTC cadets
from Bradford High School
and other schools in the state
pretty much did the same
things they would've done' if
their annual summer camp had
been held at Camp Blanding as
it has in the past.
Cadets did not sleep in
military barracks, but that was
one of the few experiences
they missed out on at the
Junior Cadet Leadership
Challenge camp. Their days
were still filled with similar
activities, such as rappelling
off of a tower, learning water
skills and safety, taking math
and science classes and
learning land navigation skills.
More importantly, cadets
still learned what David King,
:the senior Army instructor at
Bradford High School,
'considers the most important
aspects of camp.
"The whole thing is about
leadership and teamwork,"
King said. "Our key thing is
working with other people
:because, wherever they go in
life, they're going to be
Working with other people."
Many activities at the camp
force cadets to work together
to reach the end goal
successfully. Bradford cadet
Adam Farlow, for example,
had to tackle the "giant's
ladder" on June 7. Two cadets
claimed the ladder at the same
time, with each assisting the
other in reaching the top.
"You have to learn to work
together and do a bunch of
things together," Bradford
cadet Britney Przekop said.
"It's actually pretty awesome."
Farlow's partner during the
giant's ladder exercise was not
from Bradford County. In fact,
cadets from the same school
are split up among the four
companies, forcing them to
interact with cadets from other
cities and counties.
Harry Good, senior Army
instructor at West Port High
School in Ocala who served as
the camp commander, said
cadets have reservations about
the camp and being among
strangers.
However, it did not appear

some assistance from a cadet from another school

many activities cadets participated in that stressed
the importance of teamwork.


those reservations lasted long.
Bradford cadet Houston
McClain said it was "cool"
meeting new people, and his


fellow cadets from BHS
seemed to agree.
"You get real close to all
these cadets," cadet Alyssa


Cline said. "You don't want to
go home after you meet them.
Your bunk buddy becomes
your best friend."
Cadet Justin Cantu
expressed his surprise at how
easily new relationships
formed.
"I didn't think it was going
to be easy to make this many
new friends," he said. "I've
made about 49 new friends-
my whole company.'
Farlow said he not only
made new friends, but meeting
different cadets has been a
learning experience. One of
the things that has come out of
that, he said, was learning new
marching cadences.
"It's been nice meeting
people and seeing how they do
things differently from our
(JROTC) program," Farlow
said.
In fact, Farlow said the
camp "greatly exceeded" his
expectations, a sentiment
shared by fellow BHS cadet
Clay Koehler.
"It's a lot better than I
expected," Koehler said. "I
expected to come out here,
have fun and do some
leadership stuff, but they've
really gone beyond my
expectations."
Przekop simply summed up
her feelings by saying, "It has
been awesome."
Przekop, Khoeler and
Farlow were all looking
forward to tackling the rappell
tower, with Przekop excitedly
describing the act of
descending with sounds that
cannot be reproduced as
words.

Scorpio's offers charm, relaxation in downtown Starke


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Enter Scorpio's and step
back in time to a day spa full
of southern charm and a most
relaxing atmosphere.
The 2,700 square-foot
structure on West Call Street
was originally built in 1912 as
a home for Clara Mae
McKnight. It passed through a
few owners until it was
purchased by its current
owner, Tim Faulkner who
opened it up to the public in
January of this year as
Scorpio's Day Spa.
Faulkner said that he was
able to look beyond the yard,
which took two weeks and a
demolition crew to clean up,


and he just fell in love with the
house.
Wanting to preserve .the
home as a historic building,
Faulkner Tsunable to open up
the second floor right now.
"In order to be listed as a
historical building, it must be
preserved in its original state,
meaning the original staircase.
It is not up to current building
codes, so I am unable to use
the area right now," he said.
Faulkner said there is
nothing structurally wrong
with the stairway, but building
codes do change over the
years. Once the structure is
registered, he will not be
forced to replace the stairway
and can preserve its history.
The front yard is beautifully
manicured and the entrance to


Miriam Faulkner has a final coat painted on her nails

Scorpio's contains an array of
colorful flowers, plants and
decorations landscaped by
Faulkner himself.
The house had been sitting
for three years and the yard
was in really bad shape. The
backyard, which has a fish
pond, is still being worked on.
"It's one of my ongoing
projects," he said.
The biggest project he
undertook after purchasing the
home was repainting the entire
house. He said that even with
help, it took three months to
paint it. Faulkner also
decorated the inside using a
little bit of elegance and a little
bit of antiques. It still has its
original wood floors, some of
which were previously covered
up with carpeting.
The electrical, central
heating and air, and plumbing
were updated by a previous
owner, leaving Faulkner to
concentrate on beautifying the
interior, giving it a cozy, at-
home feeling, something you
won't usually find in a hair and
nail salon.
Born and raised in Bradford
County, Faulkner attended
Bradford High School.
Following high school, he
joined the army, then returned
to Starke and attended the
cosmetology program at the
career center.
He then worked for Calvin
Kirkland at Illusions Salon for
four years before Kirkland
relocated to Macclenny. By
that time, Faulkner had built a

something a bit more striking.
He opted for using the name of
his zodiac sign, Scorpio.
Through the years, he has
attended hair design shows in
New York, Miami and Las
SVegas.
"In 1997, I was fortunate
enough to be given the
opportunity to work a show
with Gianni Versace and even
paid the $2,500 fee," Faulkner
said. Unfortunately, Versace
was murdered before the show
could ever take place.
Some of his future plans for
the spa include opening the
upstairs as a bridal and
bridesmaid rental suite, with
the salon sert ices available to
them downstairs. He also
believes the' cohfpleted yard
would make a beautiful place
for a wedding ceremony.
Another plan of Faulkner's is
to let people know they are
welcomed to come on by and

some things she had always
wanted to say.

In a letter given to him just
prior to his scheduled surgery,
she wrote, "It is hard to
communicate with your

these thoughts for you to read.
"You nurtured and cared for
nature as carefully as you did
your own family. You lovingly
introduced, nurtured and
cultivated all my love for
plants and animals."
"Each seed I now plant, each
garden I now grow and each
bounty I receive, I thank you.
We were so lucky to have had
the multitude of animals that
you provided for us to grow up

have paid a toll on your body,
but you should know that it
was not in vain. You have not
weakened in my eyes; you are
still my hero. I was always
proud to say, 'This is my dad'
and I still am."
The letter brought tears to
Altman's eyes and he did pull
through the surgery.
Joyce said her husband still
loves to be outdoors and rides
his tractor in order to water his
vegetables. Just the other day,
Ricky Altman saw his father
sitting in a chair in the
backyard as he hoed the
garden. You can't keep a good
man down.
The day after Father's Day,
he will return to the doctor to
activate the implanted device
to restore his hearing. He will
likely be surrounded by his
four children, which include
Vanessya, Kay Lowe and
Ricky Altman of Starke, and
Sheila Altman.
"He can't wait. He's always
been a talker and it's been hard

and started with SPD in 2000.
"Murphy has been a valuable
asset to the community as a
patrol officer, a school resource
officer and through his
community relations with the
citizens of Starke," said Chief
Gordon Smith.

Jason Smith mounts the headlight on the bobber
motorcycle.


SMITH
Continued from p. 2C

setting down into a bobber
frame," Smith said, adding,
"We don't have much room to
play with."
The paint job features
pinstripes and gold leaf.
"That's going to be a
wicked-looking bike," Smith
said.
One might imagine that
constantly changing parts and
ideas throughout the process of
building a motorcycle would
be frustrating. It is, at times,
Smith said.
"There are plenty of times
where you get to a point where
stuff just isn't fitting the way
it's supposed to fit," he said.
"You've just got to take 20-30
minutes to walk away from it
and come back and start over."
Once the bike is built and
everyone involved agrees it
has turned out as desired, then
it is disassembled. That is
because the bike is luilt at first
with nothing but plain,
unpainted metal-a mock-up.
The mock-up gets torn apart
and pieces are sent away for
painting, powder coating, etc.
"You're at their mercy,
waiting on them to. get
everything back to you," Smith
said.
Then ,the,,.bike,.,-has to:,be
reassembled and wired.
Smith said there is a
tremendous amount of
satisfaction in seeing the
finished product, yet there is
something else that is even
more satisfying.
"Just hearing it fire up at the
end," he said. "That's where
you get the final satisfaction-
when you hear that motorcycle
crank up in the end."
Another satisfying aspect of
building a bike is hearing what
others say about it. Smith. will
get that chance when he goes
to Starke's Bike Fest, an event
he is glad to see in his home
town. It gives him a chance to


stay at home, yet still have the
chance to look at other
people's motorcycles and get
some ideas for bikes he will
build in the future.
Smith said he enjoyed
seeing and meeting riders and
people from different cities
and counties during the
inaugural Starke Bike Festival.
That event had a good turnout,
which he is hoping this year's
event will duplicate.
Overall, Smith thinks the
event is a positive one for the
community. It helps the
economy and brings a lot of
people to Starke who have
never been to or heard of the
city before, he said.
The fact there is such an
event, coupled with the
opening of Knuckle Draggers,
suggests there is a bike culture
that exists in Starke. It has
always been here, Smith said,
but recently it has grown by
"leaps and bounds." He said
you would see motorcycles
here and there out on the road
a couple of years ago, but now
you can stand by U.S. 301 and
see 200 to 300 bikes ride by in
a day.
Smith estimates the number
of riders has tripled in the last
couple of years.
"You've got people coming
in (to Knuckle Draggers) who
are 49 or 50 years old and who
haven't ridden a bike in 25
Searss., he. said.. "AIL of. a
sudden, they're buying a new
bike. They're getting back into
the riding scene.
"It's not any certain age
limit. From teenagers to
grandparents, everybody's
riding."
And anybody who would
like to ride a motorcycle that is
unique, Smith will listen to
their ideas and try to build the
bike they want. It's a part of
that challenge that lies in
bringing a bike to life starting
with a bare frame.
"We're going to give it a
shot and see if we can do it,"
Smith said. "There's no way to
find out unless you get out
there and do it."


BROWN
Continued from p. 2C

Brown said.
Brown's interest in
motorcycles developed as a
teenager. He recalled wanting
a motorcycle for Christmas
one year. He did not get one,
but his father, sensing his
disappointment, bought him a
used motorcycle a few days
later.
"I got a belated Christmas
present," Brown said. "I was
tooling around Starke on my
little Honda 65 for a couple of
years."
Motorcycles dropped out of
Brown's life after college, but
his resumed in 1998. He knew
several people who had Harley
Davidsons, which eventually
led to him buying one-a 98"'
anniversary edition of a
Heritage.
"I wish I still had that bike,"
Brown said, "but I traded it in
for something else. It was
fun."
Every couple of years,
Brown would get another
model that had newer features.
Then he decided he wanted a
custom-made chopper, though
he still owns a Harley.
Currently, besides a Harley,
Brown owns two custom
choppers after selling two
others this year. He is also
adding a bobber, which is
being built by Jason Smith at
Knuckle Draggers in Starke, to
his collection.
Brown said the bobber was a
type of motorcycle popular in
the 1960s "when the
motorcycle craze kind of
began." Those motorcycles

You could say Brown has a

laughed as he said his wife
would describe it another way.
"I think my wife calls it an

Passion or addiction, Brown

will be hosted at the Bradford
County Fairgrounds tthis
weekend, June 15-16. Brown
attended the inaugural event
Last year and was impressed.
"I thought it was fantastic
for a first-time event," he said.
"It ran well. I think everybody
had a great time."
If the event continues on an
annual basis, it could really
provide a huge economic
impact, Brown said. He
pointed to Leesburg as an
example. That city hosts a bike
festival which was probably
similar in size to Starke's-


festival when it began. It has
since grown, with Brown
estimating the Leesburg
festival drew approximately
300,000 people this past year.
"I think (the Bike Festival)
is great for the city of Starke,"
he said.

CAMP
Continued from p. 5C

Farlow rappelled on June 7.
Up until then, he said the part
of the camp he enjoyed most
was survival training, a part of
the outdoor skills session.
"It's going great," Farlow
said. "It's just really, really
hot."
All the cadets got the chance
to cool off at some point
during the week during the
aquatics session of the camp.
Przekop was participating in
that session on the morning of
June 7, saying that up to that
point, it was the most fun
activity she had taken part in.
Cantu also enjoyed that part
of the camp.
"I learned how to swim,
finally," he said. "It took me
two hours, but I did it."
The aquatics instructors
make sure all the cadets learn
how to swim before they are
able to participate in any water
activities. That helped Cline,
who admitted she was not as
strong of a swimmer as she
thought she was.
"They teach you how to
swim better, then they'll retest
you," Cline said. "If you're a
better swimmer, you get to go
out in a canoe and all this other
fun stuff."
That's what Cline said she
was looking forward to the
most- going out on the lake in
a canoe.
Besides looking forward to
that canoe ride, Cline had the
responsibility of being her
company's safety officer. As
such, she -~ore a red cap,
carried a first-aid kit and heard
many complaints of blisters
and insect bites. She summed
up her duties as safety officer
as having to distribute "lots of
Band-Aids."
It -was also her duty to
remind the cadets in her
company to drink water.
Hydration was stressed
throughout the camp. Even
during one of the math/science
classes, in which the cadets sat
indoors, they were told by the
instructor to drink from their
canteen whenever they were
thirsty.
It's a way of dealing with
the Florida heat and, for some
of the cadets, dealing with it in
unfamiliar conditions.
"A lot of these kids, it's their
first time in the woods," Good
said. "My kids are almost all
city kids. Some of them have
never been in a lake before."
West Port and Bradford high
schools were two of 13 schools
represented at the camp, which
consisted of approximately
200 cadets. The other schools
participating were Bell, Dixie
County (Cross City),
Englewood (Jacksonville),
Paxon (Jacksonville), Wolfson
(Jacksonville), Raines
(Jacksonville), Hudson, Lake
Weir (Ocala), Lecanto,
Williston and Taylor County.
(Perry).
Activities during the camp
consisted of aquatic skills, land
navigation and outdoors skills,
ropes training (rappell tower,
zip line, giant's ladder, etc.),
archery, drug demand classes,
which are put on by the
National Guard, and math and
science classes.
"A lot of kids don't have the
opportunity to get out and do
things like this," King said.
"To do everything that they do
here, it would cost their

Farlow said.
The adults-several of
whom are volunteers-who
work at the camp are probably
glad they have-a- year to
recuperate. As King said, it's a
"high-packed" week that
leaves both adults and cadets
tired, but he left no doubt that
the.work was worth it.
"It's a long week for us,"
King said, "but it makes you
feel so good when kids are
having a good time. That's
what it's all about-having a
good time, staying busy and
learning something."

This, was the first summer

who were interviewed for this
story. They all expressed their
desire to return nextyear; and
Farlow plans to spread the
word.
"I can't wait to tell

including our new freshmen,"
