Lake Butler teen dies in Friday auto accident


BY CAROLYN EAVES
and LINDSEY KIRKLAND
A 16-year-old Lake Butler
girl was killed last week when,
for unknown reasons, her
vehicle crashed on S.R. 100,
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol traffic report.
Ariel B. Croft and her
passenger, Adam T. Adkins,
20, were taken to Shands
University of Florida by
TraumaOne helicopters around
5 p.m. Friday after EMS, fire
and forestry employees and
volunteers worked to free them
from the vehicle.
Croft was pronounced dead
at 9:34 p.m. Adkins did not
appear on the hospital records.


Croft, driving a 2004
Volkswagen Beetle, was
eastbound on S.R. 100 at 4:28
p.m., according to Trooper
Jeremy J. Peck.
The vehicle travelled off the
roadway and collided with
shrubbery in .the tree line. The
front of the vehicle then
collided with a small concrete
post and a large tree, Trooper
Peck said.
Croft was not wearing a seat
belt, Trooper Peck said.
Damage to the VW was
$25,000.

fatalities during throughout a
six-day period surrounding the

lot of things."
Bishop said teachers and
staff review the Sunshine State
Standards that will be tested,
and then they map out how
many times they can teach this
information before the FCAT
test.
"There's absolutely
continuity in curriculum," she
said.
If a teacher needs more tools
to reach every student, she
said, then the school and the
district work together to
provide that professional
development.
"I feel like it is a district-
wide effort," she said, noting
that parent involvement is an
important factor in how well a
child performs on the FCAT.
"The kids work very hard,"
she said, "and we try to

School received a school grade
of A for the third year in a row
based on FCAT scores.
This is unlike the middle
school,-which fell to a C this
year, after being rated a B
school for the past four years.
Union County High School
remained a C school for the
fifth year in a row.
LBES Principal Lynn
Bishop said Tuesday she was
happy with the continued
effort put in by the students,
staff, parents and district level
administration to achieve their
school grade.
"We're very proud," she
said.
When asked what key
methods are used to keep
LBES -on top-of the- school-


speeding tickets; 1,426 seatbelt
and child restraint violations
were cited; and Troopers
assisted 4,225 motorists
throughout Florida.
FHP participated in
Operation C.A.R.E.
(Combined Accident
Rediiction Effort), a national
program aimed at reducing the
number of traffic crashes on
interstate highways during
holiday periods. FHP
investigated 2,270 collisionss as
part of the effort.
Some preliminary holiday
statistics provided by FHP are;

Proposed city budget includes rate increases


A raise for city
employees is also
proposed, while the
millage rate remains
unchanged

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

It was with regret that Lake
Butler city manager Richard
Tillis presented the city
commissioners with a
proposed 2007-08 budget that
includes rate increases in
water, sewer and solid waste
collection, but he also
emphasized the changes were
nominal, especially in light of
the fact no such increases have
occurred in more than 10


years.
"This will be the last budget
I have the opportunity to
present to you," said Tillis,
who is set to retire. "I hate that
I had to present it with
increases, but you just have to
do what you have to do. It's
been a long time. We've
managed to do those services
without having to have
increases, but at some point in
time it catches up with you."
However, Tillis said Lake
Butler's rates, even with
proposed increases, will still
be well below neighboring
cities. For example, in looking
at approximately 10 cities in
north Florida, the average cost
for t\vice-a-week garbage
collection for residents is


$14.58, Tillis said.
Lake Butler residents, who
haven't experienced an
increase in garbage rates in
probably 14 years, Tillis said,
are paying $7. The proposed
increase is $10-almost $4
below the average of
surrounding cities. (Proposed
commercial rate increases
range from $1 to $20
depending upon the type of
service.)
"We're still lower than
anybody else around us," Tillis
said.
The proposed rate increase
for water service is $1.75
(from $9.75 to $11.50) for 0-
3,000 gallons. The proposed
cost of each additional 1,000


gallons has increased
$1.60 to $1.90.


from


A $3 increase is proposed
for sewer service (0-3,000
gallons), from $20 to $23.'The
proposed cost of each
additional 1,000 gallons has
increased from $1.70 to $2,
while the proposed maximum
costs for residential service has
increased from $32.75 to
$36.75.
The last increase in water
and sewer rates occurred in
1996.
Tillis said the increases were
being recommended because
the utility fund has barely
broken even the past two
years. He anticipated
expenditures surpassing
revenues at the close of this


fiscal year.
A large part of that is due to
the $225,000 that was used to
match a CDBG grant in
upgrading the Main Street
water distribution system in
2000-01, Tillis said. Reserve
funds dwindled from $658,240
to $396,085 after that.
Those funds increased to
$482,860 in 2004, but a steady
decline has followed.
Rising costs of supplies,
materials, electricity and fuel
have also contributed to the
decline, Tillis said.
"We've managed to absorb a
lot of' those increases and
continue to operate," Tillis

C.R. 229 set to
reopen in August
According to the latest
reports from the Florida
Department of Transportation,
C.R. 229 in Raiford is set to
reopen in August.
A section of the .road
connecting Uniorn and
Bradford counties (between
S.R. 121 and C.R. 225) has
been completely closed to
replace the New River Bridge.


BUDGET
Continued from p. 1A
said, "but it finally caught up
with us."
Tillis .said he would like to
see the utility fund generating
adequate revenue so that 5-10
percent of the total operating
budget can be set aside for
-future expansion and
emergencies, such as when the
sprayfield pumps had to be
replaced last year.
"That was a $75,000 hit all
at one whack," Tillis said.
The board unanimously
approved the tentative budget,
which includes a 3-percent
raise across the board for city
employees, and a tentative
millage rate of 2.25-the same
rate that wvas approved last
year.
Tillis said some may
question a raise in salaries
when rate increases are being
proposed for water, sewer and
solid waste collection rates,
but he said employees are
facing rising costs like
everyone else.
"Employees pay just as
much when they go to the
grocery store or buy any other
product as the next person,"
Tillis said. "They need to keep
up with the cost of living as
well."
The proposed budget for the
2007-08 fiscal year is $2.17
million and is a decrease of
$520,577 from last year's
proposed budget (most of that
is attributable to the city
closing out its CDBG grant,
Tillis wrote in his report to the
commission).
The total comprises
$841,930 for general fund
operations, $1.04 million for
utility fuhd operations
($340,787.24 water division,
$704,113.26 sewer/solid waste'
division) and .,$285,000 for
special projecdtSnd funds.
This year's proposed general
fund is an increase from last
year f $39,437.50. Even
though the same millage rate
of 2.25 is proposed, revenue
from ad valorem taxes has
increased by 2.6 percent based
on new-growth estimates
provided by the'" property
Appraiser's office.
The next budget hearing will
take place on Monday, Aug. 6,
at 5:15 p.m. at City Hall.

GRADE
Continued from p. 1A


provide incentives to
encourage them to do so."
On the middle level, LBMS
fell from a B to a C.
Union County School
District's Director of
Curriculum Bobbie. Morgan
said a main factor affecting
LBMS and the whole district
was the changes in how
schools are graded.
"The DOE (Department of
Education) implemented more
strenuous guidelines this year,"
she said. "It's a challenge to
keep up."
Three new components were
added to the list of how FCAT
school grades are factored:
FCAT science scores, learning
gains in math among the
lowest-performing students
and passing scores for the 11t-
and 12th-grade students
retaking the grade 10 FCAT
math and reading exams.
According to the DOE,
typically when standards are
raised and new guidelines are
implemented, the "number of
low-performing schools will
initially, temporarily increase."
According to DOE data (of
those tested) for LBMS, 91
percent were proficient in
writing, 61 were proficient in
reading and 52 percent were
proficient in math. Fifty-one
(51) percent also scored at
grade level or above in
reading. In math, 56 scored at
or above grade level.
Morgan said, "We're
continuing to show growth."
At UCHS, the school grade
is currently a C, but Morgan
said the school district is
appealing this decision.
As part of the requirements,
Morgan said 50 percent, of the
lowest-performing 25 percent
of students, must show
learning gains.
All other requirements,
Morgan said, put UCHS on
track to receive a B, but of the
lowest 25 percent of students,
only 49 percent showed
learning gains, according to
DOE.
Morgan said UCHS
Principal Alex Nelson
calculated the FCAT
percentages students received
and said he thought that 51
percent showed learning gains.
This is why the school
district will appeal UCHS'
school grade. If the appeal is
won, UCHS will be a B school
for the first time since school
grades began in 1999.
Of the 97 percent tested,
UCHS students were 92
percent, 37 percent and 66
percent proficient in writing,
reading and math, respectively.
The school district as a
whole also receives a grade.
District scores are based on the
percent of students in the
district meeting high standards
in reading, math, writing and
science, making reading gains,
and the percentage of the
lowest 25 percent who make
gains in reading and math.
With 98 percent of eligible
students tested, Union was
given a district grade of B.
This has been the same grade
since district grades were
implemented in 2004. To
compare with other areas,
Bradford made a C and Clay
County made an A for the
same four-year period.

Adequate yearly
progress
Schools must also meet


adequate yearly progress based
on subgroups of the student
population, including race and
the economically
disadvantaged.

Lake Butler adopts new occupational license schedule


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer


At its July 9 meeting, the
Lake Butler City Commission
unanimously adopted a
resolution establishing a new
occupational license tax
schedule, which will go into
effect Oct. 1.
John Berchtold, the city


manager designee, said there
was some adjustment of
occupational license rates 10
years ago, but this is the first
structural modification since
the 1970s.
S"We took out classifications
that don't really exist anymore,
and we added classifications
that now exist," Berchtold
said.


Approx. 2,500 attend


July 4 event


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Attendance for Rotary's
annual July 4 Celebration at
Lakeside Park was estimated
around 2,500.
Rotary president Jennie
Reed said the event did well
this year.
The weather may have
affected the turnout, though
there were only a few short
showers, lasting minutes or
less,
However, weather in other
places did stop the scheduled
skydivers from taking off from
Palatka.
The skydivers, new to the
event this year, were canceled
due to weather, but plenty of
families-including four-
legged friends-came to the
event to eat, play games, enter
free giveaways and watch the
fireworks bySkylighters.
A few carnival-type rides
and an exotic petting zoo were.
also provided by Circle H, who
donated 15 percent of its
profits back to the Rotary Club
of Lake Butler.
Rotary received generous
donations to put on the event

Rotary will continue to sell
its $1 tickets for an authentic

City manager Richard Tillis
cited an example, saying,
"There's a thing in there now
called non-traditional arts
which includes karate and all
these other things that we
didn't worry about back in the
'70s."
A changing world and the
arrival of the computer age
brought about the need to
make changes, Tillis said.
He said most of the- fees
range from $40-$200. Some
occupations that already had
high fees "weren't messed
with," he said.
Berchtold said the new rates
were the result of a survey he
conducted of eight cities: Avon
Park, Chiefland, Fort White,
Green Cove Springs, High
Springs, Live Oak, Macclenny
and Mayo.
"In summary, what we
found is that Lake Butler's
rates for occupational licenses
are well below the survey
average in almost all cases,"
Berchtold said.
The new rates were based
upon the averages of the eight
cities surveyed.
On a side note, Tillis said
one thing the commission will
have to look at updating as
well are water tap fees. The
current fee in no way covers
the costs involved if roads
have to be cut or patched, for
example, along with costs of
labor, time, etc.
"We are definitely losing
money on tap fees," Tillis said.
"A three-quarter-inch water
tap, no matter which side of
the street it's on, is $350."
The city would be breaking
even if the fee was
approximately $500, Tillis
said.
Berchtold is currently
comparing the city's fees to
those of surrounding.cities.
"I know seven or eight of the
communities around us have
been surveyed," Tillis said.
"The only one that's cheaper is
Waldo. Everyone else ranged
from about $500 to $1,500 for
water taps and even more for
sewer taps."

Patrols to begin for
unleashed dogs
Tillis said someone would
begin patrolling the city,
looking for roaming dogs, in
response to concerns brought
before the city commissioners


by two residents.
"If he's loose out there,
we'll catch him," Tillis said.
The city responds to every
call it receives on a loose dog,
Tillis said, but has not had
someone actually go out
looking for unleashed dogs.
Tillis said someone would start
patrolling during the early
morning hours and the late
afternoon and early evening
hours.
He made that statement after
the commission heard the fears
expressed by residents Bobby
Marton and Allegra Saunders.
Saunders, who likes to
bicycle through downtown,
talked of how she has been
attacked and chased by dogs in
the past. During one incident
in which she was chased, she
fell into a ditch and sustained
several fractures.
"I thought my hip was
broken," she said.
Just recently, she was
approached by a dog, but
managed to elude it before any
harm could be done her.
"I know you are aware that
we do have a leash law,"
Saunders said. "I know that. I
need some help in enforcing
it."
Marton said he was bitten by
a dog during a recent walk (the
incident was reported to the
sheriff's office)..
He has walked the streets of
Lake Butler for more than 30
years, but Marton said in the
last year he has noticed more
dogs roaming free and has
encountered more aggressive
dogs.
"It's Just getting worse," he
said.
Saunders mentioned the
names .of two other citizens
who were concerned as well
and told, the commission, it
would be surprised at -the
number of people who are
afraid to ride their bicycles
through town.
She pleaded for the city to
do anything to help.
"Whatever it takes,"
Saunders said. "If it takes a
guy, for a while, just to ride
through Lake Butler, I believe
you could clean out all of the
dogs thaare not secure."

Liquid sludge to go
to Roberts' land
Commissioners unanimously
voted to approve an agreement


with Roberts Land and Timber
allowing the city to directly
apply liquid sludge upon
property owned by Avery
Roberts.
"It helps (Roberts) with
improving an area he wants to
make into pasture land, and it
obviously helps us," Tillis
said, alluding to the anticipated
savings of the agreement. The
city expects the cost of sludge
application to drop from $105
per 1,000 gallons to $40 per
1,000 gallons.

the joy she brought to
everyone at Santa Fe

She was not only involved at
SFCC, but at WEAG as well.
Kramer's calling to radio
began at an early age. She was,
just 11 in the summer of 1998.
That was the year Florida was
under the scare of several
wildfires.
As usual, WEAG provided
up-to-the-minute information
onr where the fires were, what
to do and where to go. As the
hour grew late one night,
Kramer was hanging around
the station and didn't want to
go home, so her father, Chuck,
put her to work answering.

morning, she had mastered the
console "and was on the air

Along the way, Kramer
developed a passion for
music-first the piano and
then singing. She sang in the
church choir at St. Patrick's in
Gainesville, as well as
performing with the Bradford
High School chorus. Kramer
later became involved with the
Santa Fe Singers at SFCC.
She majored in journalism
and minored in music at Santa

generation college student for
the Kramer family and served
as president of student
activities at the Andrews

matching funds-has been
established for the Danielle

The purple house


To those who have seen the house,
the name conjures up memories of
a home that is majestic in color and
architecture in a rural setting. To those
who have not traveled the country
road in Alachua County and have not
seen the magnificent structure, it is
worth your time and effort, for it is
truly outstanding and memorable.
The highway on which the house
is situated, C.R. 225, dead-ends into
U.S. 301 just south of the Alachua-
Bradford County line and goes
through the Monteoche community
and by the Gainesville Race Track. It
isn't a shortcut to Gainesville, but it
is a scenic drive. If the destination is
to east Gainesville, stay on 225, but if
the destination is the Oaks Mall or the
North Florida Regional Hospital area,
turn right on C.R. 340 and proceed to
C.R. 231. Turn left on S.R. 121, which
crosses U.S. 441 (Gainesville's 13th
Street) and morphs into Gainesville's
34th Avenue. The Purple House is
located at the juncture of 225 and 340,
but directions aren't needed. The house -
cannot be overlooked by travelers
through the rural community.
The highway passes through typical
North Florida woodland with planted
pines and cleared fields, but no row
crop farming. There are many nice
homes of recent vintage, but the
area is sparsely settled by people
seeking open space away from
urban congestion. The price of land
advertised by one owner at $10,000
per acre is testament to the demand for
quality home building sites adjacent
to metropolitan areas.
In going toward Gainesville from
Starke, one comes upon the house
unexpectedly since it is hidden by
planted pines; it is vivid in a rich purple
with white trim and bigger than life
on a large corner lot. While the. color
catches one's attention, the size and
design suggests unlimited financial
resources required for construction.
A sign in the yard proclaims Kevin
Hughes, Ocala architect, as the


designer of the contemporary one-
story building. It has 5,000 (maybe
more) square feet, heated and cooled,
four bedrooms and five baths. An
outstanding feature is the family room,
30 feet long by 27 feet wide and two
stories high, room to accommodate
almost any activity.
At current building costs of $100
per square foot, there is an investment
of well above a half million dollars
in the property. The house compares
favorably with the Shaqille O'Neal
home in Orlando that I visited while
he played for the Orlando Magic. The
O'Neal dining room seated 50 people
in black leather upholstered chairs
and a kitchen that would complement
a large restaurant.
The house was built by Clinton
Portis, a Gainesville High School
graduate with an enviable high school
football record as a running back, who
currently plays for the Washington
Redskins. Although he was a local
football standout, he elected to play
for Miami rather than for the Gators.
Coach Steve Spurrier recruited Portis
as a defensive back, but the player
elected to go with the Hurricanes to
-play 4he.ru.nning-.back position....
As a high school junior he rushed for
1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns on 220
carries, averaging 5.5 yards each. He
averaged 8 yards per carry, and made
26 touchdowns in his senior year. He
was a three-year starter, rushing for
2,036 yards and 26 touchdowns and
declared the Player of the Year by the
Gainesville Sun.
Portis left early to enter the NFL
draft and became a second round
draft choice by the Denver Broncos.
After two successful years in Denver,
he was traded to the Washington
Redskins for cornerback Champ
Bailey. He reportedly signed an eight-
year contract with the Redskins for
$50.5 million dollars.
He can afford the house.

RJE school history dates


back to early 1900s


The following has been
published previously in the
Telegraph and also appears in
the book, "Bradford County:
Its History and Its People.."

BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
The African-American
community in Bradford
County has, a rich history
and-in spite of ,early
oppression-members of the
community banded together to
overcome the obstacles placed
in their path by society.
In 1913 three members of
the local black community
spearheaded the effort to
improve the educational
oppQrtunities in their
community. The Rev. James
W. Robinson, A.O. Jenkins
and R.M. Ellerson were the
leaders of the effort to build
one of the first black high
schools in this area. It was
called RJE High School-for
Robinson, Jenkins and
Ellerson- in acknowledgment
of their efforts.
Jenkins was a highly
respected educator and
longtime principal of the black
school in Starke. He "as a;
spokesman for the project and:
also helped to actually build
the school. Robinson, who
acted as both a minister and an
undertaker, supervised the
project, and Ellerson, a partner
with Robinson in the
undertaking business, served
as treasurer for the limited
funds that were available. All
three men worked hard to raise
money for the project. Land
and materials were purchased
and local citizens volunteers
who worked tirelessly -
inished the building in 58
lays.
This frame building, which
vas opened in 1914 on Pine

NCA students successfully

eye targets at regionals


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
For'two years, Joel Haas
captured first place in
unlimited freestyle archery at
the Accelerated Christian
Education Regional Student
Convention, yet he had no
teammates to celebrate with.
This year, Haas finally had
some company as Starke's
Northside Christian Academy
formed its first archery club
and had seven students place at
the ACE regionals, including


Haas again taking first in the
boys division.
Northside's Danielle
Blankenship won the girls
division, while fellow students
Sunshine Atteberry, Kenya
Clemons and Linn Stalnaker
placed third, fourth and fifth
(the first six places are
recognized).
In the boys division,
Northside students Joey
Blankenship and C.W. Griner
placed third and fifth.
Parent Rodney Greathouse
helped the students form the


archery club, with most of the
students competing with either
their own bows or borrowed
bows.
The Buckmasters' northeast
Florida chapter stepped up and
supported the club, donating
approximately $4,000 worth of
equipment. (Buckmaster's
member Doug Green is a
member of Northside Baptist
Church, and his children attend
the church's school.) The
equipment consists of eight
bows, 60 arrows, two bow
stands, repair kit and targets.

There are new reasons to cry over spilled milk


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
The price of milk is on the
rise and experts say the trend is
likely to continue in order to
meet the increased demand.
A number of factors are
behind the price increase, said
Chris Galen, vice president of
communications for the
National Milk Producers
Federation. High fuel prices,
drought and an increase in the
cost of feed and dairy
operations are all contributing
to the price of dairy products.
Corn, the primary feed for
dairy cattle, is being
subsidized by the government
for the production of ethanol
fuel which in turn, is causing
supply problems for dairy
farmers.
David Pimental, Cornell
University agricultural
scientist, calculated that
powering the average U.S.
automobile for one year on
ethanol (blended with
gasoline) derived from corn
would require 11 acres of
farmland, the same space
needed to grow a year's supply
of food for seven people.
Another factor is the high
price of gasoline which affects
costs from production all the
way to distribution. When it
costs more to produce and
ship, it will cost more at the
grocery store.
Because of drought
conditions in two of the
world's largest dairy
producers, Australia and New
Zealand, the increased dairy
need in the Asian markets has
largely been filled by the U.S.
"It's. got a lot to do with
demand in Asia and production
problems in Australia," Galen
said.
.Between 2003 and 2006,
U.S. exports of milk products
increased 75 percent,' with
much of that going in the form

Desire to be with animals brings Sayles to BC shelter


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
If the dogs aren't barking,
the phone is ringing, and vice
versa. Or the phone and dogs
may be going at the same time,
as if competing to see which
can most successfully drown
out the silence.
Moments like these may
very well have some people
pulling their hair and
exclaiming, much like Dr.
Seuss' the Grinch, "Noise!
Noise! Noise!" Yet for Tracey
Sayles, the manager of the
Bradford County Animal
Shelter, they are simply the
sounds of a job she loves
That's not to say all of that
noise doesn't have its effect.
"I do go home with a
headache from time to time,"
Sayles said with a laugh, "but
you learn after a while to tone
(the noise) out."
Sayles has been the manager
of the Bradford shelter since
Nov. 6. She was hired after
"working off and on with
animals for years."

older. She went to work for
Pumpco, a concrete-pumping
company where she was office
manager.
"I thought I would stay
there, but then my parents got
sick," Sayles said. "I ended up
having to quit to take care of
them."
Her mother never recovered
from her illness, but her father
did. Afterward, Sayles began
thinking about her future,
which caused her to say to
herself, "You know what? I
want to be with animals."
Sayles went to work with the
Florida Horse Ranch (she had

Sayles spends her time with
.animals all day, then goes to
her home in Clay Hill, where
she spends even more time
with animals. Her 17-year-old
and 16-year-old daughters
each have a horse, and Sayles
has two dogs, one of which she
said is at her side constantly
and "can't function without
me."
She is surrounded by
animals around the clock and
has been surrounded by them
throughout her life. Sayles
recalled that when she was a
child, her family always had
dogs as well as a cat or two.
There were also rabbits,
gerbils, hampsters and fish.
Sayles remembered her
childhood dream of wanting to
be a veterinarian, saying, "I
used to read a lot of books
about dog breeds, horse
breeds, how to take care of
them and things like that."
.Circumstances change as life
happens, however, and Sayles
did not go on to school to

Prior to becoming the
manager of the Bradford

worked with a veterinarian for
a little more than a year as a

position she became familiar
with the shelter in Bradford
County. She learned the
manager's position at the
shelter was going to open up,
so she looked into it.
Now, Sayles has been the
manager for approximately
eight months. During that span
she has experienced highs and

One of the highs would be

said having to put down a great

part of her job.
That is why one of the most
common comments she hears
from people is, "I couldn't do
your job. I love animals."
"Well, I love animals, too,"
Sayles said. "That's why I can
do my job. Sometimes
euthanasia is the nicest thing
that has ever been done to that

Sayles pulls up in her truck,
9the work begins. She knows
that from the sound that greets
her every weekday morning at
the Bradford County Animal
Shelter.
"As soon as the truck pulls
up, the dogs start barking,"
said Sayles, the manager of the
shelter. "They're here long,


enough that they learn the
sound of the truck. They don't
shut up until they've had their
breakfast."
The animals are fed twice a

Local trapper takes bite out of gator population


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
For everything you've
always wanted to know'about
alligators but were afraid to
ask, Lake Butler resident and
licensed nuisance alligator
trapper Justin Touchstone is
the man to see.
Touchstone, 35, said the
nature of his job doesn't
frighten him and oftentimes
alligators might lose their way
or are simply just passing
through an area when they are
spotted.
Alligators are not usually
out there lurking around to
attack people. They prefer a
diet of amphibians, snakes,
turtles, small mammals, fish or
birds. But sometimes,
Touchstone said he finds other
things in the stomach of 'a
harvested alligator.
"I've found large fish hooks,
weights, lures and even pieces
of rope. The weirdest things
I've found were golf balls and
tennis balls," said Touchstone.
In general, the state reptiles
are considered a nuisance
when they are larger than four
feet in length and pose a threat
to people, pets or property,
Alligators less than four feet
long are generally afraid of
people andr are not capable of
.eating anything beyond the
size of a small turtle.
"They are too small to pose
a threat and aren't typically
dangerous to people unless
someone starts messing with
them," TouchStone said.
Occasionally an alligator
less than four feet in length is a
legitimate problem that must


be addressed.
Just two weeks ago, Sgt.
Ray Shuford of the Union
County Sheriff's Office was
dispatched on an animal
complaint call. Shuford was
surprised to find an alligator
had wandered away from a
lake and was crawling down a
street.
Alligators typically stay
either in or right near the edge
of water, but Shuford was
concerned because this one
was about 300 yards from the
lake and in a street lined with
houses.
Moreover, he said the
alligator did not retreat or
appear to fear humans, so he
placed a call to Florida's Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission. FWC contracts
with 38 nuisance alligator
trappers throughout the state of
Florida to remove specific
nuisance alligators.
It would be an hour before
the FWC licensed trapper for
Union County could get to
Lake Butler-he actually
resides in Hawthorne-and
Shuford was able to safely
capture the alligator.
Although Touchstone is a
resident of Union County, it is
not the area that is assigned to
him. Touchstone responds to
alligator nuisance calls in five
other counties-Bradford,
Baker, Clay, Nassau and
Duval.
Linda Collins, nuisance
alligator program supervisor of
FWC, stated had that particular
alligator been of life-
threatening size, she would
have dispatched Touchstone as
the nearest trapper to the site


immediately.
According to FWC alligator
nuisance records, since April
2005, Touchstone received 516
permits in Clay County and 37
in Bradford County. A permit
is issued after a dispatcher at
FWC determines the size and
whereabouts of the alligator.
Of those calls and permits,
237 alligators were harvested-
from Clay County and 19 from
Bradford County-nine of
which were in Starke.
"Not every call results in an
alligator finding for the
trappers," Collins said.
Sometimes, trappers arrive
and the alligator has left the
area.Trapper permits are good
for 45 days, allowing them to
return to the area to catch the
alligator if it cannot be located
when the trapper arrives.
SOther times, trappers arrive
and find the alligator to be less
than four feet long.
"Because alligators less than
four feet in length are not
dangerous to people, as
trappers, we are under no
obligation to remove them,
much less respond to a
nuisance call," Touchstone
said.
The trapper responding to
the recent call in Union
County was not required to
pick up the alligator. Out of
concern, he did it anyway and
released it in the wild.
"We don't make a dime on a
call like that," Touchstone
said. "Sometimes, making
people feel safe and protecting
the alligator is part of the job,
too."
Collins said that the FWC
conducts customer service
evaluations on their trappers.
"Trapper Touchstone is
held in high regard and is
definitely one of our top 10
trappers," she said.
As a licensed trapper, he

County is in pristine condition.

from the statewide nuisance
alligator program, or SNAP,
but he is not paid for removing
Alligators that get into conflicts
with the human population.
However, his licensing does
permit him to sell the meat,
hides and other marketable
parts from nuisance gators that
are not required to be released
iiithe wild.
Prior to trapping alligators,
Touchstone worked in
corrections at the Reception
and Medical Center in Lake
Butler for 14 years. Wanting to
advance his career, he began
training as a law enforcement
officer with FWC when he
found out about an opening for
a nuisance alligator trapper.
For about four years now,
Touchstone has been a
licensed nuisance alligator
trapper with the FWC.
"The services of SNAP

Once the alligators are skinned, the hides are rinsed
and cleaned, then placed in the shade to drain.

My Dear Patients:
I did not abandon you and I still love and care for you!
Welcome to my new office!


MORE O
A country church once paid
$1,500 per acre more than "fair
market value" for two acres of
land adjoining the existing
church property. In another
transaction, a young couple
agreed to accept $7,900 less
than "fair market value" for
their three-year-old tract home.
Once "fair market value" is
established on real estate, other
factors such as availability and
time pressure may influence
the final sales price. The
church wanted an additional
two acres adjoining church
property to use for a picnic and
fellowship area. Property
located in any other spot would
have been unsuitable. Thus
the,adjacent land held more
value for the church because of
its location, and they were
willing to pay the price.


A mer c ican


Pr LTO R S


R LESS!
The couple that accepted
$7,900 less than fair value for
their home exemplifies the
concept of time pressure. The
husband, a middle manage-
ment candidate within his
company, was offered a pro-
motion in another state. He
was anxious to move and
assume his new responsibili-
ties. They weighed a higher
selling price for their home
against a fast move to the new
job. The new job won out,
resulting in a lower than fair
market value sale price.
Keep in mind that even
when the final sale price of
real estate is higher or lower
than "fair market value," both
buyer and seller may experi-
ence complete satisfaction
with the transaction.

When the animals have been
fed, the dogs are taken out of
their cages and allowed to run
in the yard individually,
though a few can go out
together, provided they can get
along. While the dogs are in
the yard, their cages are
cleaned.
Any medical needs, such as
administering worm
medication, are addressed,
while a list is compiled of
animals' most pressing needs
in preparation of the weekly
visits from local veterinarians.
New animals to the .shelter,
whether dropped off or picked


up by Griffis, are checked in.
Each animal gets its own file,
that includes a health chart and
its picture.
Any animal Griffis brings
could belong to somebody, so
a lost-pet list is consulted as an
attempt is made to determine if
the animal is someone's pet.
"We look for collars and
tags," Sayles said. The goal is
to reunite a pet with its owner
if possible.
When not dealing with ,the
animals directly, Sayles is
busy with the phone. She has
answering machine messages
waiting for her every morning
that she has to listen to, so
she's returning calls as well as
taking new ones. The calls can
be complaints or they can be
from someone who's lost a pet.

is relayed to Griffis.
"Of course, if .it's an

is put on the backburner,"

Sayles said a lot of

"We try to handle it as
peaceably as possible," she
said. "We don't want to just
barge in there and snatch
someone's animal and bring it
to the shelter. We'd like to
work out a peaceable solution
between both parties."
Sometimes, people simply
aren't aware of the leash laws,
so they are informed of what
they are and allowed to keep
their pets, Sayles said.
The goal is not to send
Griffis out seizing animals
unless absolutely necessary
because "our cages stay full as
it is," Sayles said.
The shelter has 12 cat cages
and 15 dog cages along with
several collapsible cages and
plastic pet carriers that can be
utilized if necessary.
Sayles said the cages have
remained full since mid-
December.
"We can empty the cages,
today and tomorrow afternoon
they will be full again," she
said.
An animal is kept for 14
days. The first three to five
days, the animal is held in case
an owner shows up to claim it.
If not, the animal is then put up
for adoption if it meets the
requirements to be adopted.
Animal rescue groups'are
also able to take any animals
during this time.
In June, 20 dogs and seven
cats were adopted, while 41


dogs and 38 cats were sent to
rescue groups. Thirty-four
dogs and 44 cats were
euthanized. Euthanasia is
performed by local
veterinarians.
"The numbers (of animals
euthanized) most times are less
than what we send out to
rescue," Sayles said. Those
numbers were approximately
equal in June, but in May, 48
dogs and 68 cats were sent to
rescue groups, while 24 dogs
and 46 cats were euthanized.
(Most of the cats that are
euthanized are feral, Sayles
said.)
The shelter takes in many
animals that could be. great
pets, Sayles said. She
encourages anyone thinking
about getting a pet to visit the
shelter and see what's
available. If there is a certain
type of animal a person is
looking for which the shelter
does not have, Sayles said to
not give up, but keep
returning. The types of animals
at the shelter change daily, she
said.
Some animals at the shelter
are not adoptable for various
reasons, such as they are
aggressive or feral, but a lot of
animals are dropped off at the
shelter for reasons such as
their owners are moving and
cannot take them with them,
the animals do not get along
with another pet at home or the
owners simply do not want the
animal anymore. An animal
that does not fit into one
person's lifestyle may fit
perfectly into the lifestyle of
someone else.
Sayles said she sees a lot of
animals at the shelter that
aren't adopted, and she can't
figure out why.
"We get some really good
guys through here," she said.
Anyone who is interested in
adopting an animal must be at
least 18 with a valid driver's
license. If a person is renting,
he or she must have a note of
approval from the landlord.
In accordance to state law,
animals that are adopted must
be spayed or'neutered if not
already. People may choose
any vet in which to have either
procedure done.
"They have 30 days to have
it done," Sayles said. "We
offer a rebate. A portion of
their adoption fee ($40 for
non-sterile dogs, $25 for non-
sterile cats) is rebated to them
once the animal has been
spayed or neutered and the
paperwork has been returned
to the sheriff's office."
If you are interested in
adopting an animal, visit the


shelter, which is located off of
Edwards Road by the National
Guard armory, or call (904)
964-9200.
Shelter hours are 9:30 a.m.-
5:30 p.m. Mondays-Fridays.
However, Sayles encourages
the public to wait until at least
11 a.m. to visit so that the
early morning hours can be




This cat doesn't
waste a good
opportunity to .
take a nap,
despite the
noise of
barking dogs
surrounding it.

Continued from p. 2C

want the last thing they know
when they leave here is that
somebody did care about
them."
Sayles had to fight back
tears as she-described how she
shows those animals that care
before they are euthanized.
That is what makes it so much
more joyful when she watches
an animal leave the shelter
with a second chance.
For example, there was
Dixie, the dog that was
eventually adopted by a man
from Tampa. Two months
later, Dixie was competing in a
frisbee competition.
Another dog, whose picture
graces the desktop of Sayles'
computer at work, arrived at
the shelter from an abusive
situation. The dog was scared
of people, but he stayed on the
at the shelter for a long time,
Sayles said, because it earned
its keep with the .way it
interacted with other dogs at
the shelter.
"He babysat puppies for
me," Sayles said. "We coud-
put him in with anybody. He'd
keep them occupied out there
in the yard. He'd play with
them and stuff; He was a great
dog, but he had been abused
and he had been starved."
A man finally showed
interest in the dog, visiting the
shelter every Friday to spend
time with it in the shelter's
backyard. Sayles said the man
fell in love with the dog, but it
took the dog a while to warm
up to him.
The dog did eventually


utilized to clean the animals'
cages.
A list of animals available
for adoption was accessible
through the Bradford County
Sheriff's Office Web site, but
that site is temporarily down at
the moment. However, that list
can be accessed through the
Web site www.petfinder.com.




~E\pi .?


warm up to the man and the
man was allowed to adopt it.
"The dog's been living like a
king ever since," Sayles said.
"He's got his own bedroom at
the man's house. He's got five
acres to run on."
It seems like it turned out to
be a perfect match, and that is
what Sayles would like to see
happen for all of the shelter's
adoptees. For example, she
would not want to allow a
family with cats to adopt a dog
that was dropped off at the
shelter because it did not get
along with its previous
owners' cats.
That's why Sayles likes the
opportunity to not only sit
down and talk with people
who are interested in adopting
animals, but to talk with those
people who are dropping off
animals at the shelter as well.
People may drop off animals at
the shelter after hours (cages
are set up for this purpose), but
Sayles encourages them to do
so during business hours.
"We certainly prefer they do
it during the hours we're here
so we can talk to the owner
and find out the habits of the
animal so we can pass that on
-f the animal is adoptable," she
said.
Drop-offs. Adoptidns. The
barking. The phone ringing. It
all adds up to a busy day for
Sayles, but she in no way
longs for a break from animals
when she leaves the shelter for
the day. She knows there are
more waiting at home, and she
wouldn't have it any other
way.
"I don't have a life without
animals," Sayles said. "I don't
really want a life without
animals."

Page 10C TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR--C-SECTION July 12, 2007


MarketWatch reported the average milk price could
reach as high as $5 a gallon by September.


MILK
Continued from p. 1C
prices, with the rest going to
processors, distributors,
grocers, and others.
For instance, in January,


Florida dairy farmers received
about $1.68 per raw gallon of
milk to be processed. By July,
the price rose to $2.27 a gallon
according to Calvin
Covington, chief executive
officer for Southeast Milk, a
Florida dairy cooperative.


Experts- agree the increase in
milk prices isn't exactly
making dairy farmers any
richer because the higher
prices are following a rather
long dry spell for dairy
farmers.
In a report from the
University of Florida
Extension Service, in 1996
Florida producers received an
a,.erage of $18.39 per 100
pounds of milk. Ten years later
-irr2005,-they received $18.20,
v virtually the same price.
Tommy Spires, owner of
Spires IGA in Lake Butler and
Lake City, said he had an
inkling about two months ago
that the dairy prices were
going to continue to rise this
year.
"I just had to raise the milk
price again on July 1," he said.
"I think it goes without
saying that dairy farmers have
had to cope with increasing
costs through the years for
employees, insurance, feed and
transportation," Spires said.


According to Russ Giesy, a
University of Florida dairy
extension agent, the number of
dairy cows in Florida are
declining at a rate of about six
percent each year.
In December 2006, Florida
had about 130,000 cows on
130 dairy farms, down from
152,000 in 2002.
Approximately 86 percent of
milk produced in Florida is
drinking milk and therest-is-
used for making cheese, butter
and whey products.
Spires said his stores receive
milk from the IGA distribution
center in Cairo, Ga. He said he
can remember the days when
there were several dairy
farmers in the area, but for the
most part, there wasn't enough
money for them to make ends
meet.
Albert De Vries, a UF
animal sciences assistant
professor, said the shriveling
dairy herds in Florida are the
result of the smaller dairy
farmers selling their land for
far more than it is worth for


agriculture production.
"Production costs in Florida
can run 25 percent higher than
the national average," De
Vries said, "because the hot,
humid climate reduces milk
production."
In addition, the feed costs
are also higher in Florida
because farmers use large
quantities of corn which is
transported from the Midwest.
---M-ike--Shalley, owner of
Lawtey Supermarket in
Bradford County, said that just
three months ago, the milk
price was $2.97.
In May, it went up to $3.17
and then $3.25 in June. Shalley
said he strives to offer his
customers the lowest prices he
possibly can, and at present,
his the lowest grocery store
price found for whole milk at
$3.49 a gallon.
"But I never know from one
month to the next what the
price is going to be set at," he
said.
A check of local grocers
found the gallon whole milk


price at Spires IGA $4.29,
Wal-Mart $4.58, Winn Dixie
$3.99 and Hitchcock's $4.19.
Gustafson and TG Lee
brands were found for as high
as $5.87 a gallon. The current
average national price for a
gallon of whole milk is $3.50.
"Unfortunately, the prices of
other dairy products such as
butter, cheese and ice cream
will also continue to climb as a
result of milk prices," Spires
said.
In regards to corn, both
Spires and Shalley agree the
price of frozen and canned
corn hasn't really been
affected yet.
The canners and frozen food
companies buy huge quantities
of corn several months in
advance to guarantee they'll
have it," Shalley said. "The
price increase will catch up to
them soon enough and it will
be passed on to the consumer,"
he said.

have identifiable FWC trucks
and can show proof of their
commission-issued ID card
and permit.
"Someone trapping an
alligator without such ID
should be reported to law
enforcement right away as they
quite possibly are a poacher,"
said Collins.
Touchstone said he uses a
snatch hook or snare to catch
alligators. "Most times it takes
between 15to 30 minutes to
hook a gator, seal the mouth
and tie him down and load him
in the truck," he said. He then
takes it back to his workshop,
complete with a large walk-in
cooler, walk-in freezer and
meat processing room. The
alligator is placed in the cooler
and processed within 24 hours.
Touchstone said the largest
alligator he ever caught was
just over 13 fee in length. The
average is about seven to
seven and a half feet long and
produces between 20 and 30
pounds of meat.
During the processing of an
alligator, he is required to
make a report which includes
the location and date of.capture,
permit number, size, sex,


amount of meat processed and
the alligator's tag number.
By law, all harvested
alligators must be tagged and
registered through FWC. In
1975, the U.S. Senate ratified a
treaty, the Convention on
International Trade in
Endangered Species, or
CITES, to protect endangered
plants and animals from
unregulated international trade.
As a result of the treaty, all
alligator hides that are bought,
sold and/or exported must be
affixed with a CITES tag
validating the hide was legally
acquired and is not from an
endangered species listed in
the treaty.
"Those tags allow us to track
each hide internationally so we
know where it ends up,"
Collins said.
It is illegal to possess an
alligator hide without such a
tag;
Alligator hides are a

price. They are a unique
American product that is
steadily increasing in value.
From. average prices of only $6
a foot in the 1960s and around
$9 a foot as recently as 1983,
the price per foot rose to well
over $40 in the late '80s.
From the hides, stylish
European purses go for $1,000,
cowboy boots for $600 and
briefcases for $3,000,
establishing the American
alligator as a luxury leather
product valued for its natural
beauty and durability.
The meat from alligators is
cleaned, cubed and weighed,
then placed into air-tight bags,
packaged in five-pound-sized
boxes and kept in the freezer.
Touchstone sells the packages
of meat for $5 a pound.
Touchstone said he has
never been attacked by an
alligator, although once he did
something he called "stupid."
"I had a gator rolled over on
his back and- was getting ready
to tag him. I reached over to
grab him by the mouth but
forgot it wasn't taped and put


my hand right inside his
mouth," Touchstone said.
Besides some "gnawing"
pain and a few bandages,
Touchstone's fingers remained
intact.
During 2006, there were
more than 21,000 nuisance
alligator complaints in the state
of Florida. Nuisance alligator
trappers were issued over
19,000 permits and removed
more than 11,000 nuisance
alligators.
The Statewide Nuisance
Alligator Program strives to
reduce the threat from
alligators to people and their
property in developed areas,
while conserving alligators in
areas where alligators naturally
occur.
If you have a nuisance
alligator, call the Nuisance,
Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-
