Teacher named UCHS assistant principal


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
At its last meeting, the
Union County School Board
voted 5-0 to appoint Carolyn
SParrish as assistant principal of
Union County High School.
Parrish will be taking the job
formerly held by Russell
Larramore, who was recently
appointed as the principal of
Lake Butler Middle School.
Parrish, who was a first
grade teacher at Lake Butler
Elementary School, will be
embarking upon her first
administrative position when
school starts on Aug. 23,
She spent this past week
moving into her office at
UCHS and is looking forward
to the responsibilities that her
new job brings.
SLast week, Parrish spent
time on an administrative
retreat held by the school
district. She said all school
administrators were on hand to
prepare for the upcoming year,
from the elementary school
straight up to Superintendent
Carlton Faulk.
The retreat, entitled
"Beaming Up for Excellence,"
helped administrators create a
plan for success for the 2007-
2008 school year.
There, Parrish said she
learned a great deal from her
colleagues. -
"The district office, Mr.
(Alex) Nelson, Mrs. (Lynn)
Bishop, Mr. (Russell)
Larramore, the high school
office staff ... they have all
been very supportive," Parrish
said. Barry Sams, director of
the district's alternative school,
also was very helpful in giving


advice, she said.
At the district level, Parrish
said Linda Johns has made a
positive impact on her
adjustment to her job.
S"Being under her leadership
was a phenomenal experience
for me," Parrish said.
Though only a few are listed
here, Parrish said she was very
fortunate to receive such a
warm welcome and have a
good support system that
Union County Schools offer.
"I'm really excited," she said
jh hui the ",,jhii' aii. "It" an
honor to be here."
Though she will face the
challenge of improving' FCAT
scores and the school grade,
disciplining students and the
other responsibilities of a high
school administrator, Parrish
said her teaching background
will help her through the
difficult first year.
"With my reading
background ... .our main goal
is we want to make an A," she
said of the school grade that
has of yet eluded the high
school.
In January, Parrish
completed her reading
endorsement, an intensive
program that when completed
was added to her teaching
certificate.
Parrish said she will be able
to pass her knowledge from
the endorsement and- having
taught first grade, an age
where children are still
learning how to read, on to
UCHS' faculty.
An extra insight into reading
and curriculum mapping will
be the focus to help teachers
pass the Sunshine State


Standards onto students.
This involvement at a higher
level is one reason Parrish
wanted to become an
administrator.
"I have a more active role in
it," she said.
Parrish graduated from
UCHS and went on to earn a
bachelor's degree in education.
She siaried her first role as a
teacher at LBES 16 years ago.
"I interned in first grade,"
jshe said. "I loved it, and I!ve
been there ever since."
Sti [i-,. c aicihing siidrnLs
come into her classroom barely
being able to read, slowly
grasping the concepts and
leaving as fluent readers.
"That's the magic of first
grade," she said.
Even so, being' an
administrator w- goal she
wanted to attain. ..
In 1997, she got her master's
degree in educational
leadership.
"I didn't really pursue it
then," she said, because her
..children were growing up, and
she was very involved in their
lives.
About two years ago,
however, Bobbie Morgan, the
district's director of
curriculum, approached
Parrish about- updating her
qualifications so that she could
be an administrator in the
future.
Parrish went to the North
East Florida Educational
Consortium's Principal
Leadership Academy in
December 2005 as a teacher.
She completed the first tier of
the Promising School Leaders
Program in December 2006.

Carolyn Parrish


When a position came
available, Parrish was
interviewed by an outsitf
panel, along with other
candidates, and was selected
for the job. Upon approval by
the school board, she has
begun to prepare for the school
year.
Besides being an assistant
principal, Parrish has also been
on the adjunct faculty of St.
Leo University for one year,
where she trains future
teachers.
A Union County native,
Parrish is the daughter of Elery
and Katheryne Griffis.
She is married to her'
husband, Allen, and together
they have four children:
Branden, Brittney, Kyle (all of
whom graduated from UCHS)
and Seth, who will be a
freshman this year.

Friday marks

county's

budget

presentation
Budget includes 5
percent raise for all
county employees

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
For the coming year, the
county is looking at an overall
budget of approximately
$12,211,000.
A budget is normally a hard
document to figure, with the
finance officer, commissioners
and department heads having
to consider needs versus
wants, insurance increases,
grants and whether or not to
give employee raises.
This year, property tax
reform made it even more
complicated.
"... There were so many
things up in the air," said
Donna Jackson, the county's.
finance director.
For months, the county
could only fear the worst.
Jackson said the fiscal outlook
only became more concrete in
the past three weeks.
She said the budget, Which
will be presented,Friday,' is
proposing 10 mills (the
maximum amount possible),
instead of the 8.5 mills
rollback rate.
A rollback rate is the level at
\ which the county would collect
the same amount of revenue
from property taxes in 2007-
2008 as it did this year.
Jackson said property values
did increase within the county.
This might normally mean a
decrease in millage,. however,
the cutbacks felt throughout
the state make it necessary, for
the countN to keep the current
millage to generate more
revenue.
She said because Union
County is an economically
constrained county, it does not
have to approve a rollback
millage rate if a higher
millage-in this case, 10
mills-is approved
unanimously by the board.
If the county commission
approved the rollback rate of
8.5, it would be .a $350,000
decrease.
"Even if we went with the
rollback rate," she said, "there
would still be a slight increase
because of new construction."
Many counties were also
required to roll back property
rates by an additional
percentage based on growth
rate from 2001-2006--3.3
percent for Union-Jackson
said.
"Union County became
exempt from that because
we're an economically
constrained county," she said.
"We were not held to this
additional percentage."
Revenue that could be
generated from keeping the
same millage will be reserved
for the future, Jackson said.
After consulting with a
representative of the Small
County Coalition, Jackson said
for the upcoming 2007-2008
year, Union could expect a
$100,000 reduction in
revenues.
For 2008-2009, the county
could lose another $600,000 in
revenue.
"In the 07-08 budget, we're
trying to make every effort to
put some back for a rainy day
that we know is coming,"
Jackson said.
There are some positives in
the proposed budget,
including: circuit court costs
will see only a minimal
increase; Union will still
receive fiscally constrained
county money; and extra
infrastructure and discretionary
tax will allow the county to put
aside money for future
shortfalls.
One thing the county always
has in mind is its employees,
who will again fare well in the

How to make

your lawn a

cut above the

rest
University of Florida's
Union County Extension
Office provides the following
Stips for maintaining a lawn in
August:
Raise the height of your
mower, sharpen blades
and only remove one-
third of the leaf blade
height of your grass.
This will help reduce
stress to your lawn.
; Hold off on using
"weed and feed" type
fertilizers, especially


those with atrazine as
the active ingredient.
If you have to irrigate,
do so early in the
morning, applying
three-fourths to one
inch of irrigation water.
Use a can or rain gauge
in the irrigated area to
catch and measure how
much water you've
applied.
Postpone fertilizer
applications other than
iron.
Spot treat lawn pests as
needed.

Clarification...
In a story that appeared in "Customer Satisfaction Has Been Our Top Priority Since 1947"
last week's paper about


Brittany Carney, her mother
Jerri Parrott would like to
clarify that she does not blame
herself for the accident and
realizes even if she had been
present at the time it occurred,
there was nothing she could
have done differently to
change what took place. AUTO SALES
She stated that she was
home 95 percent of the time to
meet her daughter's bus and
felt that on this particular day,
something had protected her V
from being there to witness the
accident.
On a happier note, Parrott's
first grandchild was born on-
July 26, the day after what
would have been Brittany's
sixth birthday. (See Tomlinson

Bradford, Union officials hold

joint leadership briefing


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Officials from Bradford and
Union counties gathered
Friday in the Union County
Courthouse for a senior
leadership briefing.
Florida -. Emergency
Management (EM) Director
Craig Fugate and the National
Weather Service's Steve Letro
presented information about
government's role in
responding to hurricanes and
the 2007 hurricane season
forecast.
Fugate said, "Elected
leadership bears the
responsibility to declare an
emergency and Jhas the
authority to do so."
According to Florida Statute
Chapter 252, the state's
emergency management act,
the governor leads the state's
emergency response team,
declares a state emergency and
prepares for disasters through
exercises and training.
EM is encouraging
governments on a local level to
be more prepared through
SERT, the State Emergency
Response Team.
SERT is a joint effort among
state, local, volunteers and the
private sector to coordinate
and respond to disasters.
Fugate said it is the
responsibility of the elected
officials at the state and local
levels to be prepared with a
plan and supplies.
But most importantly,
emergency situations require
fle\ibilitN.


Florida
Emergency
Management
Director Craig
Fugate
discusses the
State
Emergency
Response Team,
or SERT, with
officials from
Bradford and
Union counties.


He said the state EM had to
build flexibility into its budget
to have ready access to funds
when needed before and after
emergencies.
Flexibility was a key
element in sending Florida
responders, with their own
supplies, to assist when
Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf
Coast in 2005.
Fugate said, "Here are the
rules for emergency response.
One, meet the needs of the
people, and two, take care of
responders."
He said those two elements
are easier met .with
preparedness and being on a
common communication
system.
Meeting goals, keeping an


open line of communication
and holding themselves
accountable was the
responsibility of public
officials, he said.

Letro, the meteorologist-in-
charge of the Jacksonville
branch of the National
Weather Service, also spoke
on the 2007 hurricane season
forecast.
With a slide of a caveman
widely known from the Geico
commercials on TV, Letro
said, "Hurricane
forecasting...so easy a
caveman could do it."
See BRIEFING, p. 9B

On Monday, Frank Sheffield Jr. was driving east in his Chevy pick-up truck on
S.R.16 when he lost steering and braking abilities, according to Heilbronn
Volunteer Springs Fire Department Chief Terry McCarthy. Sheffield pulled to the
side of the road about one mile past C.R. 225 and quickly unloaded his tractor
from the trailer he was hauling, as the truck burst into flames. The fire
department's Engine 41 and Squad 4 responded to the 911 calls at approximately
8:30 p.m. and put out the fire within minutes, said firefighter Ann Williamson.
McCarthy said based on what Sheffield described, the fire appeared to be
electrical in nature.

Opportunity knocks


It has been said that opportunity
knocks only once and that may be
true in the situation confronting the
city of Starke and Bradford County.
Certainly the stars are properly
aligned and the signs of the zodiac
are in position for taxpayers to reduce
the cost of local government by
supporting the consolidation of the
two major law enforcement agencies
in Bradford County- the Starke
Police Department and the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office.
There are a number of issues to be
addressed, but the overriding issue in
serving the public good is reluctance
for change by city officials. If they
can rise above the personal claim of
"having a police department" and
consider only what is best for the city
and county, residents, including those
of us wholive inside the city limits,
will be well served.
- -Several factors have come together
to make this the time to make a sea
change in the way we operate local
government and bring it into the 21st
century. In the next election there
will not be an incumbent sheriff on
the Bradford County ballot since Bob
Milner is seeking a seat in the Florida
House of Representatives. There
will be competition for the office of
sheriff, but consolidating will be less
of an issue without an incumbent in
the race.
In the city, Chief of Police Gordon
Smith will be a candidate for the open
sheriff's post and not an incumbent
for his own position. The law requires
Smith to resign the city position.
prior to running for another elective
position. It's possible the chief of
police position will be abolished
before another citN election.
Both of those situations provide a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make
changes without harming or upsetting
incumbent officeholders, a situation
Bradford County taxpayers and voters
have never before experienced.
Without exception, everyone in the
county has felt the increase in cost of
living, even though it hasn't affected

Dear Editor:

Something does not sound

but I do not like what is

If elected officials can reduce tl
tax burden without sacrificing tl
excellent quality of law enforceme
we currently enjoy, it behooves the
to do so.
There are two issues of concern
current employees in both the police
department and the sheriff's office
and that is how to handle retireme
benefits and officer rank. Both Miln
and Smith are confident these issu
can be resolved without harm to an
currently employed personnel.
Can taxpayers see tangible result
Most emphatically yes! While the ci
enjoys excellent response time, the
is no reason to believe the quality
service will deteriorate. The sheriff
office is also located in the city
Starke.
The fundamental issue is tl
reduction of tax dollars availab
to local government. Counties an
cities have been put on notice th

Remember,to
stop on red
Local law enforcement
agencies will join the Florida
Department of Transportation
and agencies across the state.
and nation to raise awareness
of the dangers..of running red
lights during Nati'onal Stop on
Red Week, Aug. 4'to 11.
Unfortunately, Florida ranks
near the top of the list of states
for intersection crashes, and a
third of those are caused by
running red lights. Excuses,
such as "The light was still
yellow," or "I couldn't stop the
car in time," abound, but there
is no excuse for running a red
light.
According to the
Department of Highway Safety':
and Motor Vehicles, in 2005,
there were 96 fatalities and
6,300 injuries in Florida as a
result of people running red
lights.
There are several important
rules to, remember when
approaching an intersecti-on
-Slow down and prepare to
stop when a light turns yellow.
-Yield to pedestrians. They
have the right of way
regardless of whether the

Continued from p. 1B
to bite at something larger than
it, but it is not altogether
unheard of. Hord said there
was an incident this year in
which a female alligator
protecting her nest bit a
lawnmower.
"Sometimes they're just
really good mothers," Hord
said.
Armas said he estimated the
alligator to be 5 feet in length.
Hord said mature females are
typically at least 6 feet in
-!enigth, though Armas'
estimation was close enough to
at least think this animal
could've been a female
protecting her nest.
Still, the incident must be
thoroughly investigated before
any conclusions are made.
Once the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's alligator
management receives a call to
its nuisance alligator hotline,
the agency's law enforcement
division is notified. A wildlife
officer responds, interviewing
the person involved and
investigating the scene of the
incident.
Armas has only been
working for the Starke
Recreation Department, for
approximately four weeks. He
said he was ready to return to
work, but vowed he would not
be mowing that close to the
creek again "until I see that
thing's gone," or at least until
the creek bed goes dry.
;-As of July 3, only one
-incident of an alligator bite had
been reported to alligator
management this year. Six
were reported last year-the
lowest total in a 26-year span.
Since 1948-and through
July 3-428 bites were
reported.
Bites are classified as
provoked and unprovoked.

i ib ,


Hord said judging from the
scant information he had, the
bite inflicted on Armas would
be classified as provoked,
though Armas did not
intentionally provoke the
animal.
For more information on
alligators, please visit the Web
site www.myfwc.com/gators.
To report a bite, call the
nuisance alligator hotline at
(866) 392-4286.
Call the hotline if you
encounter an alligator more
than 4 feet in length. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission will
evaluate your complaint, and if
necessary send a registered
trapper to remove the alligator.
Here are some tips from the
commission for those who live
and play near alligator
habitats.
-Be aware of the
possibility of alligator attacks
when in or near fresh or
brackish waterbodies. Attacks
may occur when people do not
pay close enough attention to
their surroundings when
working or recreating near
water.
-Closely supervise children
when they are playing in or
around water. Never allow
small children to play
unsupervised near water.
-Do not swim outside of
posted swimming areas or in
waters that might be inhabited
by large alligators.
-Alligators are most active
between dusk and dawn.
Therefore, swim only during
daylight hours.
-Leave alligators alone.
State law prohibits killing,
harassing or possession of
alligators.
-Never feed or entice
alligators. It's dangerous and
illegal. When fed, alligators
overcome their natural
wariness and learn to associate
people with food.
-Inform others that feeding
alligators is illegal and creates

end result can be the same.
-Don't allow pets to swim,
exercise or drink in or near
waters that may contain
alligators or in designated
swimming areas with humans.
Dogs are more susceptible to
being attacked than humans
because dogs resemble the


natural prey of alligators.
-Never remove an alligator
from its natural habitat or
accept one as a pet. It is illegal
and dangerous to do so.
Handling even small alligators
can result in injury.

Page 8B TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR--B-SECTION Aug. 2, 2007


Sales tax holiday starts this Saturday


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
A Florida law allows that no
sales tax or local option taxes
(also known as discretionary
sales surtax) will be collected
on the sale of books, clothing,
footwear, and certain
accessories selling individually
for $50 or less, or on certain
school supplies selling
individually for $10 or less.
This tax exemption is in
effect from 12:01 a.m.,
Saturday, Aug. 4 through
midnight, Monday, Aug. 13.
The sales tax exemption
applies no matter how many
items are sold to a customer on
the same invoice, however, it
does not apply to individual
items which sell for more than
$50 or any school supply item
that sells individually for more
than $10.
Defined school supplies are
pens, pencils, erasers, crayons,
notebooks, notebook filler
paper, legal pads, composition
books, poster paper, scissors,
cellophane tape, glue, paste,
rulers, computer disks,
protractors, compasses, and
calculators.
Be careful, though, because
not all school supplies are
included in the exemption.
Only a specific list of items
identified- in the bill are to be
exempted as school supplies.
For example, items labeled
as "pens" are tax exempt, yet
an item labeled as markers is
subject to sales tax. Correction
pens are labeled as pens but
are considered as any other
,correction fluid or tape and
'not subject to sales tax
exemption.
Clothing means any article
of apparel or footwear
intended to be worn on or
about the body.
Footwear includes cleats or
spiked shoes, but excludes
'skis, swim fins, roller blades
and skates.


Assessories included in he
exemption are wallets,
handbags, backpacks and
diaper bags. However,
briefcases, suitcases and other
garment bags are excluded
from the exemption.
Clothing does not include
watches, watchbands, jewelry,
umbrellas, handkerchiefs or
sports equipment.
The term "book" does not
include newspapers,
magazines, other periodicals,
or audio books. Book means a
set of printed sheets bound
together and published in a
volume.
Articles normally
sold as a unit
Articles that are normally
sold as a unit must continue to
be sold in that manner and
cannot be separated and sold
as individual items to obtain
the sales tax exemption.
Example: A pair of shoes
normally sells for $80. The
pair of shoes cannot be split up
in order to sell each shoe for
$40 to qualify for the
exemption.
Sets containing both
exempt and taxable
items
When exempt items are
normally sold together with
taxable items as a set or single
unit, the full price is subject to
sales tax.
Example: A desk set
consisting of a stapler and a
pair of scissors sells for a
single price of $9.95. Although
the scissors qualify for the
exemption 'if sold separately,
the stapler does not, because it
is not listed as a qualifying tax-
exempt item. The full selling
price of the stapler and scissors
desk set is taxable.
Buy one, get one
free or for a reduced
price
The total price of items
advertised as "buy one, get one


free," or "buy one, get one for
a reduced price," cannot be
averaged in order for both
items to qualify for the
exemption.
Example 1: A retailer
advertises jeans as "buy one,
get one free." The first pair of
jeans is priced at $70 and the
second pair is free. Tax is due
.on $70 and the retailer cannot
list each pair of jeans as selling
for $35 in order to qualify for
the exemption.
However, a retailer who
advertises and sells a $70 pair
of jeans as 50 percent off,
making- them $35 a pair,
qualifies the jeans for the
exemption.
Example 2: A retailer
advertises shoes as "buy one
pair at the regular price, get a
second pair for half price."
The first pair of shoes is sold
for $60; the second pair is sold
for $30 (half price). Tax is due
on the $60 shoes, but not on
the $30 shoes. The store
cannot sell each pair of shoes
for $45 in order for the items
to qualify for the exemption.
Gift certificates
Eligible items purchased
during the exemption period
using a gift certificate will
qualify for the exemption,
regardless of when the gift
certificate was purchased.
Eligible items purchased
after the exemption period
using a gift certificate are
taxable even if the gift
certificate was purchased
during the exemption period.
Exchanging your
purchase after Aug.
13
If a customer purchases a tax
exempt item during- the
exemption period, and then
later returns .the item for credit
but purcrtiass a completely
different item, the new item is
subject to the appropriate sales
tax.
Example 1: A customer


purchases a dress for $50 that
qualifies for the exemption.
Later, during the exemption
period, the customer
exchanges the $50 dress for a
$75 dress. Tax is due on the
$75 dress. The $50 credit from
the returned item cannot be
used to reduce the sales price
of the $75 item.
Example 2: A customer
purchases a $35 shirt during
the exemption period. After
the exemption period, the
customer exchanges the shirt
for a $35 jacket. Since the
jacket was not purchased
during the exemption period
and is a different item of
clothing, tax is due on the $35
price of the jacket.
Coupons, rebates,
and discounts
Manufacturers' coupons do
not reduce the sales price of an
item and, therefore, cannot be
used to reduce the price of a
tax exempt item in ordei to
qualify for the exemption.
However, in-store coupons
and discounts do reduce the
sales price of an item and can
be used to qualify for the tax
exempt status.
Example 1: A jacket sells
for $55 and 'a customer has a
$10 manufacturer's coupon.
The manufacturer's coupon
does not reduce the sales price
of the jacket and tax is due on
$55 even though the customer
only pays the retailer $45 for
the jacket.
Example 2: A customer
buys a $55 shirt with the retail
store offering a 10 percent
discount. After applying the 10
percent discount, the final
sales price the shirt is $49.50.
The shirt qualifies as being tax
exempt.
Layaway sales
Tax exempt items placed in
layaway will qualify if the
retailer and customer enter into

Heilbronn Springs VFD gets new truck


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor .
Heilbronn Springs Volunteer
Fire Department has
something new to be proud
of-its 2007 F550, 4-wheel
drive, automatic fire truck.
While everyone likes a new
vehicle, the fire department
has never had a brand new fire
truck.
And what makes it even
more special, said Chief Terry
McCarthy, is how the $75,000
truck was acquired.
"The Heilbronn Springs
community raised $40,000,"
McCarthy said.
Then, Bradford County
Manager Jim Crawfor'd and
Commissioner Doyle Thomas
were instrumental in
contributing the other $35,000
needed to buy the truck.
"It has taken a little better
than three years," McCarthy
said of the fund-raising efforts,
which included community
donations and even bake sales.
The truck is equipped with a
12.000-pound winch, easily
'accessible roll-up doors,
emergency scene spot lighting,
a 27 horsepower diesel motor
and a 300-gallon slide-in tank.
Side compartments hold fire
gear, backboards, a generator,
2005 Holmatro extraction
equipment, HazMat clean-up
gear and other emergency
supplies, such as glass masters
(windshield removal) and
column masters (steering
column and wheel removal).
Put that with 300 feet of
booster hose and 200 feet of
hand line, and McCarthy said
the truck can pump 300
gallons per minute.
"It's what we call a quick-
response vehicle," he said.
"Eighty percent of America's
incidents are EMS and
accidents," he said. "That's
what makes this truck unique.
It can respond to accidents, fire
and EMS.".
The truck will be stationed
on S.R. 16 in Heilbronn
Springs, but McCarthy said it
will serve a broader area.
"It not only serves Heilbronn
Springs, but the Whole
county," he said.
"There's no line in the sand.
It can go anywhere it's
needed."
This was demonstrated in
the past month as it responded
to an accident on S.R. 100 near
the Union County line, where
its extracation equipment was
used to free a man from a car
accident.
"We want to thank
everyone," McCarthy said.
The truck was greatly


needed to help the station deal beginning of the year totaling
with its high call load. It has 2,500 man-hours and 675,000
received 364 calls since the gallons of water.

BRIEFING
Continued from p. 2B
"Well, that's not completely
accurate," he said.
In fact, he and others in his
field are faced with the
difficult task of deciding if it is
going to be a highly active
hurricane season and if so,
passing that information onto
governments.
Between 1995 and 2005, he
said it has been the most active
seasons for the Atlantic basin.
While showing statistics on
the number of named storms
throughout the past few years,
it was often the less active
seasons that had the local areas
experiencing more devastation.
"Numbers don't show the
whole story," Letro said.
"It's not how many. It's
where they hit."
While indicators point
toward an active season over
the next few years, Letro said
it is hard to predict what will
happen for Union and
Bradford counties because
scientific research has not yet
pinpointed a way to predict
exact hurricane paths.
He said 24-hour hurricane
track forecasting errors have
been cut in half in the past 15
years up to 2005.
No progress, however, has
been made in determining the
intensity of a hurricane.
S"It's one of the things most
looked at in terms of hurricane
research," Letro said.
He also added that for every
three -times it's forecasted, a
hurricane may only hit once, dr
33 percent of the time.
Letro said the public often
sees this as a false alarm, but


he feels it's really not.
"Even small probability of
an extreme event, if you take
no precautions, it can see
disastrous results," he said.
Based on hurricane
forecasting and emergency
preparedness, local EM
directors Doug York and Brian
Johns, and other elected
officials, have the difficult task
of weighing the information to
make the best decision for the
public in times of emergency.

Successful Events

Are No Small Task!


The North Florida Regional
Chamber of Commerce and
Main Street Starke Inc. spend
endless hours planning and
organizing each event that is
hosted in Starke, from the
special events like "The
Strawberry Festival" and "Starke
Bike Fest" to the monthly Friday
Fests held the last Friday of
every month on Historic
Downtown Call Street.
Most people attend these
events without even thinking
about who is actually running
this, or how much did this cost?
Yes, there are costs, promoting
the events, staffing the events,
paying for entertainment, and the
list goes on.
All is done so that local
businesses have an opportunity
to increase their market base,
this is why your local chamber
and Main Street Starke Inc. do
what they do-they help grow
business.
SExample, the last Friday Fest-
saw 88 classic cars roll into
town. Normally each car has two
per, so that's 160 people coming
into downtown Starke on a
Friday night. Locals came out to
view the great cars that were on
display not knowing most of
these visitors came from as far
away as southeast Georgia,
Jacksonville, Middleburg, High
._Springs, LakeCityetc. ....
While this might not seem like
a big deal think about it, why
would folks drive 30 to 60
minutes to come to downtown
Starke or how did they learn
about the event? Marketing,


that's how, your chamber and
Main Street Starke Inc. spent
hours of staff time researching
how to promote your town and
our business members to help
ensure that they (our members)
are successful.
Direct mail, radio ads, local
newspapers, hand outs at other
events... all part of the mix that
helps the events grow. Who pays
for this? Sponsors, grants, a
percentage of our membership
dues all help to fund these
events.
How do we measure growth?
We do surveys, we ask our
members how the events
impacted their business and what
suggestions do they have to
make the next event better.
Again, let's look at the last
Friday Fest event, the Chamber
and Main Street Starke's newest
members were open. Sugar Tree
Caf6, the Whole Earth Granary,
Epoch, The Scent Bar, and the
One Stop Bear Shop, they all did
business.
Our two newest members, the
Whole Earth Granary and the
One Stop Bear Shop not only did
business, but it was their grand
openings. Not too bad having an
opening and a couple of hundred
people showing up. Luck or
great planning? Great planning.
The chamber and Main Street
work hard to show membership
benefits, these events are just a
small part of our package. Call
today and check out how we can
help you grow your business.

you call, we can respond safely

The station volunteers have
collected almost $15,000
toward this project, which is
estimated at $75,000.
Part of this comes from
asking the community to
donate as little as 10 cents a
day.


Donations can be sent to

Fire Department, 21412 N.W.
State Road 16, Starke, FL

fund you would like your
donation to go to, the brush
truck fund or maintenance
fund (the station needs nearly
$3,500 in repairs).
Donations are vital to a
volunteer department,
McCarthy said.
Recently, Heilbronn Springs
VFD received a 10KW
generator, which will run the
station in emergencies or
hurricanes.
Another donation of new
books worth $5,500 will be


turned in to a fund-raising
book sale in the near future.

During the 2006 Public
Protection Classification
survey, the Heilbronn Springs
area (five miles from the
intersection of C.R. 229A and
S.R. 16) dropped from an ISO
rating Class 9/9 to a Class
8B/10. This took effect on
April 1,2007.
ISO, the Insurance
Surveying Office, surveys the
fire suppression delivery
system provided in
communities.


McCarthy said this rating
will mean-a drop in insurance
for residents of the Heilbronn
Springs area listed above.
"We can't guarantee that
everyone will save, but the
normal saving range is
anywhere between 5 to 15
percent, and we are trying to
go lower," he said.
"With the recommendations
of the inspector, we feel we
can go lower and maybe even
save you more money in the
future."

The future depends on
what we do in the present.

Lake Butler man's mini-sub finally hits the water


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The boat seemed sunk
before it even hit the water.
Lake Butler resident
Reynolds Marion had finally
reached the point where he
was ready to take a prototype
of his Marion Hyper-Sub (a
combination of a mini
submarine and speedboat) out
for testing. Yet it did not travel
far from his garage before the
trailer it was on bogged down
in mud.
Maybe it just wasn't meant
to be. That's what Marion said
he thought at the time.
After more than four years,
however, that would be giving
up way too easily. The trailer
was freed from the mud, and
the boat has now been
undergoing testing for
approximately three weeks on
an area lake.
It was an emotional trip for
Marion and members of his
team as the boat was taken
from Lake Butler to the
undisclosed lake (Marion
wants to keep the location a
secret).
"During the journey over
here, I don't think there was a
dry eye in the house," he said.
The journey is not over yet,
though. It was just one more
step. Along the way, Marion
has had to convince people of
his "revolutionary" design,
from getting people to join his
team and invest money into the
project to showing engineers
and architects that his idea,
though simple, does in fact
work.
"I don't know if people
understand how much courage
it takes to stand and plant a
flag and say, 'I know I'm right
'`bout this.' If you're wrong,
the whole world gets to'know
you're wrong. If you're right,
the whole world gets to know
you're right. That takes a little
bit of courage," Marion said.
It also takes faith, especmall
during trying times.
"If God hadn't kept his


hands on me, I would've come
apart," Marion said. "My wife
says to me all the time, 'I just
don't know how you didn't
completely come apart.' To be
honest with you; I don't-now-
either. Nobody will ever
understand how hard this was,
to stick with this and see it
through."
The bulk of testing Marion
and his team will put the
26,000-pound craft (30,000
pounds with a full fuel load)
through had yet to be
performed as of press time (the
craft ventured avay from shore
and out onto the lake for the
first time on July 28), but
Marion was able to see one
positive the first time it was
put into the water. The craft,
which is 33 feet long with a
beam of 13 feet, 6 inches,
rested at a 2-degree angle,
which was what Marion was
striving for.
"When you consider all of
this displacement, all of this
mass and all-of this weight, for
us to pretty much say it was
going to rest at 2 degrees and
for it to be resting at 2 degrees,
that's a very big deal," he said.
Marion said the prototype
currently being tested basically
has to float, submerge and then
float again. That's all it has to
do to prove a new era in mini-
sub design has begun, he said.
"It doesn't really have to
have any surface speed. It
doesn't really have to have any
submerged speed. If we get
any of that, it's just gravy on
top," Marion said.
Of course the better the craft
performs in its testing helps,
but Marion said the concept of
the Marion Hyper-Sub has
already been confirmed. Naval
engin"ers and architects, and
graduates of such schools as
Harvard and MIT, have
examined, in Marion's words,
"two simple drawings," and
agreed' with what they were
looking at.
Marion said one such person
who studied his design is a


The Marion Hyper-Sub cruises along the surface of
the water during testing on July 28. Reynolds Marion
spent more than four years to reach this point. The
idea for such a craft, though, dates back more than 30


man who was part of an
engineering team that spent
five years in the 1980s trying
to design a similar craft.
"He came to visit us,"
Marion said. "He pretty much
said straight up, 'I can't
believe the answers were that
simple.'
"We've had this confirmed
up one side and down the other
from a concept standpoint."
Marion said the design is
simple, much like the use of
the craft itself. He envisions
people being able to operate
the craft just by pushing a few
buttons and after just 15
minutes of instruction.
The Marion Hyper-Sub is
designed to operate off of gas-
powered motors on the surface
and off of battery power below
surface. The batteries recharge
while 'the boat is on the
surface.
A safety system allows the
craft to drop the weight of an
additional ballast system and
rise quickly to the surface in
the event there is a spike in the
cabin pressure, the carbon-
dioxide level rises to a
dangerous level or the craft
begins to descend beyond a
preset depth limit. .
The craft will have value as
a recreational vehicle, but will


also appeal to commercial
enterprises as well for use at
resorts, beaches, etc., Marion
said. He also said he has every
reason to believe there is a
high level of interest not only
from the U.S. military, but
militaries throughout the


years when Marion was 11. He is still looking to
collect a $20 bet from his sister who, when they were
children, said he would never build such a craft which
acts as a boat and a submarine.


world.
A story that appeared in the
Florida Times-Union in
January, and which was
subsequently picked up by the
Associated Press, quoted
David Taft, a spokesman for
U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw,


with saying Marion's design
could provide the military with
new ideas for the mini-sub
platform. Taft, in an e-mail,
mentioned the craft's ability to
operate independently of a

BHS grad


makes splash in


sport of rowing


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Winning 12 medals during a
three-year period is nothing to
laugh at, but there was a time
in her life when Lauren
Detlefsen probably would've
laughed at anybody suggesting
she would earn those medals in
the sport of rowing.
Detlefsen, a 2002 Bradford
High School graduate,
participated on the women's
crew team at the University of
Tampa for four years, yet she
remembers watching the
Olympics one year as a child
and not coming away with a
favorable impression of the
sport.
"I remember watching it,
and I was like, 'This is so-
dumb,"' she said.
Now, however, Detlefsen
cannot imagine a life without
rowing, even though her
collegiate career is over (she
recently graduated from the
University of Tampa).
"I definitely want to keep
rowing," she said. "I don't see
rowing not being a part of my


life. It's like someone you
want to marry. You always
want to spend your life with
them."
Most of Detlefsen's success
at the University of Tampa
occurred with her best friend,
Allison Zimmerman. The duo
raced as a pair (without a
coxswain), winning their first-
ever race (Florida
Intercollegiate Rowing
Association Regatta) during
her sophomore year and
claiming eight other medals.
Detlefsen and Zimmerman
also competed in varsity 8+
(eight rowers with a coxswain)
and varsity 4+ (four rowers
with a coxswain) competitions,
claiming three medals.
That's not bad for somebody
who wias--sTimpy--lookiA-g--fo a
way to fill her time.
Apparently, Detlefsen does
not like to let any time go to
waste during the day. She
competed in weightlifting and
softball at BHS and was a
member of the academic team,

A lot of activities are taking place at the YMCA


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer -
Need a little extra
motivation in your workout?
Want to get in shape but don't
know how? The Starke YMCA
employs certified fitness
trainers and a knowledgeable
staff to work one-on-one with
you to develop a personalized
fitness program.
.During the weekdays,
personal fitness trainer Brian
Smith can be found at the
Starke YMCA.
Smith, 45, said he was the
fat kid everybody teased while
growing up in Boston. He
joined the Navy at 17 and got
the nine-week-long workout of
his life and that in itself peaked
his interest in weightlifting and
bodybuilding.
In 1998, Smith's parents
retired in Keystone Heights
and he relocated to the area to
be closer to them.
He had his own ideas about
how a gym should be and after
talking with several business
owners in the area, he and his
wife began making plans to
open one of their own.
Calling it the Family Fitness
Center, Smith took ownership
of the former Country Cabin
Restaurant and began an 11-
month remodeling job on the
building, which had been
vacant for nine-and-a-half
years.
Smith said he felt the odds
were already against him
because workout enthusiasts in
the area were a bit skeptical of
him.
'I was just the new Yankee
in to\% n so people didn't know
what to think of me just yet,"
he said.
Offering a family fitness
atmosphere, customers grew to
trust him and began
recommending other
customers. Unfortunately,
2004 proved to be a bad year
as his family had no health
insurance and his wife needed
emergency surgery and was
unable to work for several
months. That was followed by
hurricanes Frances and Jean
which hit Lake Sania Fe pretty
hard. As membership was
wavering, Smith saw an article
in the Monitor about plans
being made for the Bradford
YMCA.
Smith said he met with
Amanda Bray, YMCA
executive director for
Bradford, Union and Columbia
counties.;. He knew almost
immediately he was meant to
become a fitness trainer for the
FYMCA and shut down his

Food Fear

Factor at BC

Library

BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
.Telegraph Staff Writer
Teenagers, thihk you've got
an iron stomach?
Come prove it ai. the
Biadford County -Public
Library. Test your ability to
.wallow some rather gross-
looking yet tasty foods or
perhaps some not-so-tasty
fobds at the teen food fear

Each participant will have
an assigned area to dine as
food is brought to the table in
rounds. Young adult librarian
Robert Perone said round one
will not be so bad, roundgtwo a
little worse, and the items will
progressively get worse as the
rounds continue.
Perone said it won't be quite
as bad as what one might see
jon the reality television show.
i"Our items will be edible, no
bugs or anything like," he said.
One idea he is considering is
barf dip that calls for several
different types of cheeses such
as lindenburg, japaleno and
hog's tead cheeses made into
a dip with hot spicy nachos:
That doesn't sound too bad if
you like spicy foods. However,
it's the smell of the food that
might be a problem.d
"The outside of the dish has


been sprayed with something
picked up at a hunting store
that has a pretty foul odor,"
Perone said.
Come hungry. You might
see foods such as cat puke
casserole or maggots in green
sauce. There'll be scrambled
eggs, too, although Perone
wouldn't say what would be
on them.
All youth between the ages
of 13 and 19 are invited to stop
by the library and sign up for
the program or call Robert
Perone at (904) 964-6400.

gym, donating the equipment
to the wellness centers in
Starke and Lake City.
Smith offers free fitness
assessments to all members.
The assessment helps him to
create an individualized
exercise routine so each
member can get the most out
of their workout.
"We talk about how many
days a week a member wants
to dedicate to exercise and
what they want to get out of
it," he said.
Smith assists clients with
establishing their workout
goals, and he keeps track of
their progress for them. For
those who want to work with
a personal fitness trainer, a
small fee of $25 will give you
an hour-long supervised
workout routine.
Some of the equipment at
the YMCA includes a number
of Cybex strength-training
circuits, Cardio treadmills.


exercise bikes and cross-
trainers. There is also a free-
weight and stretching area
ready with dumbbells and
abdominal equipment.
Equipment orientation is
included with membership
where a one-on-one
introduction to the cardio and
weight machines is provided
by a YMCA staff member:'-
A few of Smith's clients
from his former fitness center
followed him to the YMCA.
Take William and Debbie
Reynolds, for example. Three
days a week, they drive in,
from Melrose to exercise for
about an hour. William said
when they cgme to the YMCA
in Starke, they also do some of
their shopping and other
errands.
"We started coming here
becaug._.e liked the
atmosph'effi:.of Brian's old
gym. Now we prefer to come
here as opposed to other gyms


Debbie and William Reynolds come to the YMCA two
or three days a week to keep in shape.

for 11 years now. Five of those
years she spent at, Camp
Immokalee in Keystone

BC coach's life


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It has consumed most of his
life, but the sport of football
has its place in new Bradford
High School head coach Steve
Hoard's life, and it does not
have first priority.
Yes, football has given
Hoard some tremendous
opportunities in life, but he can
look back on difficult times in
his life and know he got
through those times because of
God and his family.
In fact, God and family are
important parts of what Hoard
is now trying to establish at
BHS. He said he is building
the BHS program brick by
brick. Those bricks, in order of
importance, are God, family,
school and football.
Hoard, as a Christian, will
tell you without God, nothing
is possible. He will tell you
that many players who.come
through the BHS program will
come from broken families,
making it important, he said, to
establish a family atmosphere
surrounding the team. He will
also tell you the importance of
academics and how any player
whose GPA dips below 3.0
will be required to attend a
study hall.
"If we don't have all those
other things, football doesn't
matter," Hoard said.
Those so-called bricks all
played a part in building
Hoard's life.

God, family, school
SHoard was born and raised
in Jacksonville. He described
liVing in the country in the
lyoods behind Cecil Field, yet
having a bus from
Jicksonville's Trinity Baptist
Church make the trip to pick
him up.
,"I was very active in my
youth group," Hoard said. "I
actually sang in the teen
choir."
iHoard fondly remembered
the church's youth director,


impacted by more than football


VI


who made a difference in his
life.
"He cared about me
spiritually," Hoard said. "He
was a former college football
player. He kept my head
screwed on straight."
In essence, that youth
director helped make up part
of two bricks: God and family.
The man was someone Hoard
could lean on for support. The
same could be said of his
teammates on the Forrest High
School football team. The
players made up a unit that did
so many things together,, such
as going to the movies, going
out to eat or going to church.
Hoard grew up in a broken
family, which made his
relationship with his
teammates- especially the
older ones-so valuable.
"That's why the guys on my
team were like brothers,"
Hoard said. "We did
everything together."
Hoard may have come from


Steve Hoard's

bit longer and

his familiar
moustache

attended the
University of
Georgia in the
early 1970s.


a broken family, but he never
lacked anything he needed
because of his mother's
efforts. He said he grew up
poor, but his mother-Jean
Moore of Jacksonville-
worked several jobs to take
care of him.
"I remember how tired she
was coming home," Hoard
said. "She was always doing
that so I would have money to
go to Pizza Hut or be able to
go to a basketball camp. She
never complained, but she
always made sure I had what I
needed."
As one who did grow up
poor, Hoard said the only
escape available to him
seemed to be in athletics. He
eventually came to realize,
however, that in order to take
that rogutehe would also have
to focus" 'i.,.doing better in
school.
Hoard's English teacher
during his junior year of high
school knew one of the


Georgia Tech football coaches.
She told Hoard the school
would love to have him as a
player.
"She said, 'But you know
what? You better work on your
grades.' That gave me a
wakeup call right then because
she embarrassed me," Hoard
said. "She said it in front of the
whole class."
Her words inspired Hoard to
start work on improving his
grades. He did not want to
miss out on his opportunity to
go to college, which he
eventually did.

Football
Hoard, a 1973 graduate of
Forrest High School, played
several sports. He played
basketball and competed on
the track and field team, but it
was the sport of football that
afforded him the opportunity
to go to college.
In eighth grade, Hoard was
6'4", adding;3 more inches to
his height by the time he was
in 101h grade. He began playing
football in eighth grade, yet he
admitted he did not love the
sport at first. Practices had
something to do with that.
"We practiced during a
hurricane and practiced during
lightning," Hoard said. "Back
in those days, it was a whole
different animal. We got no
water at all. You practiced all
day, and you wouldn't get
water. Kids would drink ditch
water."
Hoard joked that it was a
wonder he survived, but he did
en route to becoming a college
prospect. He was a defensive
tackle-though he played on
the offensive line at times-
who was 6'7", 267 pounds.
That was a rare find for
colleges back then, he said-a
player with that size who also
had good grades.
Hoard wound up choosing
one of the two schools whose
fans dominated the
Jacksonville area at that time.
He said if you lived in
Jacksonville, you were either a
Bulldog or a Gator.
"I went to the University of
Georgia," Hoard said. "My
mother was a Georgia fan. She
was born in the state of
Georgia."
It sounds like a dream-


come-true for any aspiring
athlete-to play for a big-time
program like Georgia and
coaches like Vince Dooley and
Erk Russell. However, that
dream never lived up to
expectations for Hoard.
Prior to his arrival at
Georgia, Hoard broke an ankle
playing basketball. That put
him behind, though he
eventually started for the
school's freshman team. Then,
he sustained knee and elbow
injuries.
Hoard left Georgia and
wound up trying to play for


Carson-Newman College. He
did earn a starting spot for
Carson-Newman, but then
hyperextended an elbow and
tore his biceps.
"That was it for me," he
said. "Back then, they didn't
have microsurgery and stuff
they have now."
It was a tough situation for
Hoard to deal with. He felt like
a failure and believed he was
the biggest disappointment in
Georgia football history-a
highly touted recruit who
didn't pan out.

Capping the season with a
medal at the Dad Vail Regatta
was a highlight of a season in
which Detlefsen and


Zimmerman spent many hours
practicing.
"We worked so hard,"
Detlefsen said. "Our grades
suffered. Our social lives
suffered."
That is one thing Detlefsen
discovered when she joined the
sport just looking for a way to
fill some time during the day-
it took up a lot of her time if
she wanted to be good. She
participated in two-hour
practices in the mornings and
two-hour practices in the
afternoons, six days a week.
Practice, combined with
classes and other activities she
was involved in, had Detlefsen
on the go from 6 a.m. until 10
p.m. some days.
Detlefsen did not do poorly
in school. She had a 3.4 GPA,
but she said her grades could
have been so -much better if
she was not involved on the
crew team.
The sport not only took up a
lot of her time, but it took a
toll on her body as well.
Detlefsen said the sport is
grueling, with her hands being
the main victims. Working
with the oars left her. hands
with blood blisters, making
normally simple activities
difficult. It was hard for her to
write notes in her classes, and
eating was no picnic either.
"It got to the point where I

said. "I had to have someone
else do it."
Detlefsen said she would ask
herself why she continued. tot
do that to herself, but she
would not ...change a thing.
Besides developing a love of
the sport, she developed
friendships with people from
throughout the United States,
not to mention meeting
Zimmerman, who has become
her best friend.
However, Detlefsen is now
preparing to attend graduate
school at the University of
Kentucky, which has no crew
team.
"I'm going to have so many
extra hours in the day," she
said.

HOARD
Continued from p. 3C

"I wouldn't even go home
and talk to people," Hoard
said. "I was so embarrassed."
Hoard, however, said it was
a learning-and humbling-
experience for him. If not for


God. his life could've easily
gone in another direction
Instead, football remained a
part of his life. Hoard joined
the coaching profession when
he was approached about
coaching Tallahassee Godby
High School's freshman team.
He was hired in that position in
1980.
"We won the city


championship (that year),"
Hoard said. I thought I was
Bear Bryant."
It w\as the start of a high
school career that could have
been short-lived if Hoard had
accepted one of the coaching
offers he received from small
colleges. The importance of
family kept Hoard in the high
school ranks.


A sad, but thankful
time
Hoard had a brother who
was much younger than him-
Michael. Michael Hoard was
born with a severe case of
spina bifida, which required
more sacrifice from Jean
Moore to care for him. Moore
even moved from Jacksonville


So you think you can dance?

The Starke Academy of Dance recently held a week long dance camp where participants learned a variety of
styles such as ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, musical theater and hip-hop.

to Gainessille when Michael
had to remain close to Shands
Hospital
"He had multiple surgeries,'
Hoard said.
Just as his mother helped
him when he was a child,
Hoard said he thought it best
for him to remain close to
home and help his mother and
Michael. Taking a college
coaching job would've taken
up too much of his time. He
knew that from watching the
effect such a job had on his
cousin's life. It kept him away
from home and took away time
from his family.
"I was scared, really, that if I
went off to Kansas, for
instance, I would never see my
brother again, or my mom,"
Hoard said. "What if
something happened to her?"
So Hoard stayed in high
school, with Michael instantly
becoming a fan of whatever
school he was coaching at,
though he could never attend a
game.
Michael died approximately
six years ago. Hoard had not
seen him during the three or
four days prior to his death,
and was coaching in an all-star
game in Orange Park when he
died.
Hoard said he still beats
himself up over having not
visited his brother prior to his
death. Michael was expected
to be released from the
hospital, and Hoard believed
that's what would happen.
Still, Hoard was able to
enjoy time with his brother he
may not have had had he taken
ajob at the collegiate level.
"I got to have a relationship
with (Michael) I hadn't had,"
Hoard said.

Road to BHS
By remaining at the high
school level, Hoard has
experienced a fair amount of
success, including a seven-year
stint at Union County High
School that included three
straight state championships
and a state-record 52-game
winning streak.
Priir to joining Robby
Prumt' staff at UCHS, Hoard
served as a student assistant at
FSI (1982-83), varsity
a3sss~lnt at Godby (1983-84),
Rickards (1987-91) and head
middle school coach at
Tall.ih.isee Florida High
i 1991-92).
Durinr- H'ajrd*' tenure.
Rickards finished second- to-
Suts,nnee in its district four
simtrght years, thereby missing
out on the playoffs (only
district champions qualified
for the playoffs at that time).
Su\aninee went on to win the
state championship during
each oI those four years.
H.uard finally tasted a state
championship in 1994 at
Union County.
Hoard described the
experience at UCHS as
magical. He and the other
coaches all got along and the
program experienced-and


Steve Hoard

still experiences-a level of
support from the community
Hoard would like to see occur
in Bradford County.
"Whether they're 10-0 or 0-
10, their whole town supports
that football team," Hoard
said.
Yet Hoard said tile
tremendous success he
experienced in Union Countt
came down to one thing-
talent. The Tigers had six
players from their first state
championship team %who
received Division I
scholarships.
"If you don't have the
horses, you can't run the
Kentucky Derby," Hoard said.
Hoard joined the BHS
coaching staff in 2000. He
coached the defensive line and
served as defensive
coordinator.

The present
Now, as he prepares to enter
his first season as a varsity
head coach, Hoard, because of
the timing of former head
coach Chad Bankston's
resignation, had to scramble to
find a full complement of
assistants.: Plus, he is looking
at a roster that may include
only 22 players.
Regardless of the situation
he faces this year, Hoard said
he won't sacrifice the future to
attain success this season. He's
sticking by his process of
building the program one brick
at a time. That includes
fostering a brotherly
relationship between older
players and younger players,
ensuring that player. are
.keeping up in the cla.--.room
-'and placini.g an emn -'i. i on
God.
The community is
important, too. Hoard wants
his players to become involved
in the community. Likewise,
he welcomes suggestions and
support of any kind from the
community.
It all adds up to best meeting
the needs of the young men
who make up the BHS football
team.
"We will do everything we
can for your children," Hoard
said during his presentation to
the Kiwanis Club of Starke.

coordinator. Provided by a
grant by the Governor's
Mentoring Initiative, children
in grades K-3 can receive free
after-school tutoring in reading
and language skill
development.
Students with low Dibbles
scores or low academic
performance are nominated for
participation. The final
selection of students is based
on the recommendations of the
scfiool principal, teacher and
reading specialist.
Confirmed participants will
receive no-cost child care
through the YMCA After-
School Care Program and two
one-hour tutoring sessions per
week.
All reading mentors are
volunteers. Many are Bradford
High School and middle
school students fulfilling their
Bright Future Scholarship
community service hours by
working with children who
struggle with reading.
Southside Elementary
School reached a milestone as
being the very first rural area
school in Florida to receive the
program. Now, Southside,
along with Starke Elementary
School, provides tutoring when
school is in session.
The results of the program
have been very positive for the
district. In 2005, between 80
to, 90 percent of the enrolled
children showed improvement
in their tests scores. In 2006,
Baldree said 100 percent of the
students showed improvement
on their Dibbles scores.
Students can be transported
after school by bus two days a
week to Starke or Southside
Elementary School, where they
work with volunteers on a 2-1
ratio.

Estelle Kates prepares the Child Watch area where,
free of charge, members can keep their children safe
while they workout.


Students spend a set number
of minutes on a textbook
reading assignment, journal
writing, flashcards and using a
magnetic board for word'and
sentence building.
Students also learn by
playing reading and Bingo
games and listening to books
on tape. Parents receive
regular progress reports and
the students are often rewarded
with prizes such as books and
book bags.
Once a child is enrolled in
the mentoring program, they
are automatically put on next
year's list. Progress takes
dedication, and if an.enrolled
child has two unexcused
absences, they are removed
from the program.
"We can often have a
waiting list for the program,"
Baldree said, "and with the
short amount of time we have
to work with, we will let go of
any child who presents
behavior issues, making space


available for others who really
want to be in the program."
Because of the large
response to YMCA Reads,
several volunteer tutors are
needed each year. As with all
YMCA employees, each
volunteer receives a
background check and drug
screening paid for by the
center. CPR training is also
provided by the YMCA.
Reading voluriteeri-c .ll
receive mentor tranlrng on one
of two scheduled dates. The
training dates a'. jlable are
Aug. 28 or Sept. 6, both
beginning at 5 p.m. at
Southside Elementary School.
Anyone interested in helping a
child learn to read should call
Monica Baldree at (904) 964-
9622.

members
Free babysitting services are


$30, while tables of eight can
be reserved for $200 each.
Tickets may be purchased at

appeared funds would run out,
Marion said.
"I can honestly say that was
the longest year of my life, not
knowing if we were really
going to survive the nextday,"
Marion said.
It will all have been worth it
if the Marion Hyper-Sub
becomes a reality. According
to Marion, one submersible
designer described the design
as the Holy Grail of mini-subs.
"A lot of the submersible
industry is watching to see
what happens here on this
lake," Marion said. ."We

million years we would be
blessed to that degree," Marion
said.
-Mariocommitted himself
_to designing and building the
vehicle more than four years
ago, closing an auto collision
repair business in the process,
but the vehicle has occupied
his thoughts for more than 30
years. The idea of building
such a vehicle popped into his
mind as an 11-year-old.
He was met with skepticism
then-his sister bet him $20
that he would never build such
a craft-and he still has his
skeptics now. Only now, there


aren't as many.
The confirmation he has
received based on his concept
is proof of that, but so is the
fact he went from having
trouble finding anyone willing
to join him init-te venture to
now having more than 200
registered partners.
"If each one of those has a
spouse, it's probably over 400
people who decided to believe
in this," Marion said.
Many of those people, like
Marion, have abandoned the
stability of other careers, to
devote their time and efforts to
the Hyper-Sub-people like
engineer Scott Shandlin, Gene
Mock, who has headed up


construction of the craft, and
build team members Tim
Bryant, Tadd Stahmann and
Bob Higgins.
There is one person, though,
who stands above all in terms
of having made sacrifices.
"The first person I give
credit to is my wife, Mary,
because she had to deal with
me being stressed out for four-
and-a-half years and not
getting to see me," Marion
said. "She took that initial
financial risk right along with,
me."
Marion and his team have
invested approximately $1.5
million to reach this point, and
there was a time when many

do so. Many people donated
much more than the asking

"We ran out of lemonade
