Jacksonville man caught

in undercover drug deal


A Jacksonville man was
arrested Aug. 2 following an
undercover drug buy in Lake
Butler.
John Thomas Hutchinson
was contacted by a confidential
source who stated he wished to
purchase cocaine. Hutchinson
agreed to the time and place set
for the purchase at a Lake
Butler location, Investigator
Mac Johns said.
The confidential source was
given $1,000 in cash, which he
gave to Hutchinson during the
buy in return for a golf-ball-
size of powder cocaine.
Shortly after the drug buy,
Hutchinson's vehicle was


stopped by deputies and he was
placed under arrest, Investigator
Johns said.
Inside Hutchinson's vehicle
were approximately 15.25
grams of cocaine and two
electronic scales with cocaine
residue on them. Hutchinson
also had a package of
approximately 6 grams of
cocaine on him at the time of
his arrest.
Hutchinson, 25, was charged
with trafficking in cocaine,
Investigator Johns said.
Assisting in the undercover
operation were Captain Garry
Seay, Deputy Doug York and

Local business owners to scale back car dealership


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
It all began more than 30
years ago when Ray Pettit
spotted a broken down car
parked under a tree in
Gainesville.
A_ college student, who
would probably g---on to
become a brain surgeon or
rocket scientist, could not get
the car to run and had parked it
under a tree.
There it would have sat, but
Pettit came along and bought
the car for $140. He fixed it up
and sold it to Olin Howell for
$290.
With a small profit, he went
on to buy other cars and fix
them up as well, turning more
of a profit.
First, Pettit sold his cars on
the corner of S.R. 100 and
C.R. 231 (across 231 front
Spires, in front of Skip's Deli).
As business picked up, Pettit
got an office in Lake Butler,
where he was living at the time
with his wife, Judy.
The first office was, of all
things, an old milk truck. He
finally bought an office-a
converted house across the
street from where he started
and where the business is still
today.
Pettit got his dealer's license


in October 1975. Judy worked
at Farmers and Dealers Bank,
but eventually came to help
Ray in the office.
The husband-and-wife team
repaired cars, detailed cars,
sold cars and conducted all of
their own office and title work.
A few other employees
would come on a short-term-
basis and eventually leave
Pettit Cars Inc. with just its
founders.
Now, the Pettits are looking
to scale back what took them
32 years to build up.
Ray said, "We don't want to
work to the extent that we
have."
The couple plans to retain
their dealer license and
continue their business, but at
a lesser pace and not with their
office on S.R. 100.
The land where the office
sits--200 feet of frontage on
S.R. 100 and 150 feet
back-has been sold for the
past year and a half. The
Pettits have leased the land for
their use since then.
The Pettits plan to shut their
office door near the end of
August. Then, they'll take
about three months to do
absolutely nothing.
"We've kept our noses to the
grindstone for 32-plus years,"


Ray said.
The Pettits will still buy cars
at auctions and other places for
those people who want them
to.
In the office last week, Judy


said, "We just won't be here.
We'll have a little office
somewhere."
When the Pettits figure out
where that might be, they said
they would let people know.


Life after cars
"We're not totally retiring,"
Ray said, but the Pettits still

See PETTIT, p. 3A


Judy and Ray Pettit will close the office doors to Pettit Cars in Lake Butler at the
end of this month. Currently, they are selling off most of their inventory as they
look to cut back their business.


Stay inforrimd. Get involved. Be entertained. Keep in touch. Express yourself. Know your community.

Grant awarded to the
department Feb. 22.
In a statement earlier this
year, Congressman Ander
Crenshaw said, "The new
pumper truck this funding will
allow the Lake Butler
Volunteer Fire Department to
purchase will be a great asset
to the department."
"This is an excellent
example of federal funds
making a positive difference at
the local level," he said.
Fire Chief Mike Banks said,
"This is great news for our
community. It's a big boost for
a rural fire department like
ours."
The Assistance to
Firefighters Grant Program is
administered by the
Department of Homeland
Security in cooperation with
the U.S. Fire Administration.


Firefighter Laurie Ash cannot contain her excitement
as she sits in the new fire truck. Ash returned from
her vacation to see the fire truck unveiled.


The program assists fire
departments and emergency
medical services providers
throughout the nation.
Funds are used by the
nation's firefighters to increase
the effectiveness of


firefighting operations,
firefighter health and safe
programs, new fire apparatus,
EMS training and equipment,:

DOT looks to open C.R. 229 by end of the month


The new bridge will
be safer and weight
restrictions will be
removed.

BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
According to the latest
information from the Florida
Department of Transportation,
construction on the New River
Bridge, located on C.R. 229 in
Raiford, should be completed
within the next month.


PETTIT
Continued from p. 1A

know it will be quite a change.
Both in their 60s, the Pettits
are probably the longest single
owners/operators of a business
01 Main Street.
Ray said, "It's a whole lot
harder going out of business
then you think."
Last weekend, they held a
sale to get rid of most of their
tools, parts and spare odds and
ends.
Ray said he will miss the
people who dropped by during
the day to just chat.
"'Most anyone will stop and
w. alk in here," he said.
"It'll be a change," he said.
"I've always been an
unbelievably hard worker."
The Pettits will spend more
nine with their family, too.
Ray said, "She (Judy) wants
to spend as much time as she
can with her family."
It used to be that most of
their family was up north, but
Lake Butler has become
home.
Sandy, the Pettits' daughter
they were reunited- with in
1998 after they had to give her
tp for adoption three decades
prior, and her family now call
the area home. Ray's brother
has moved to the area, as well.

Transplanted
Yankees
Self-described Yankees to
begin with, the Pettits-who
are originally from
Minnesota-now find
themselves well accepted in
the South.
.Building a business and a
life in Lake Butler, however,
was not easy.
Ray and Judy met in
Minnesota, but when Ray
needed a job, he decided to go
where he knew he could find
one.
Having worked in California
and Miami before, Pettit
decided to move with his wife
to Miami.
Eventually, the'Pettits saw
an advertisement in a Miami
newspaper that would change
their lives.
Ray said, "John Shaw (of
Lake Butler) had put an
advertisement in for a chicken
farm."
The small town life seemed
appealing as the Pettits had
been robbed many times in
Miami.
Judy said, "We're small
town people."
In Minnesota, the Pettits
were from small towns, .and
Lake Butler seemed to be what
they needed.
Ray said, "I couldn't find a
job. I had no money."
He even joked that his
chicken farm had no chickens.
He ended up as an operating
engineer at RMC.
One night he was talking on
the telephone to his sister
when his normally optimistic
attitude turned sour.
She suggested that he look
into the car business because
lie had sold cars up north.

The bridge is located at the
Bradford-Union County line,
and the project to replace the
bridge has been under way
since September 2006.
Doug Moseley, the DOT
engineer on the project, said,
"Our early opening estimate is
to have the bridge open back
up to traffic toward the last
week in August or first week
in September."
"The weather plays a big
part in this time frame, which
makes giving an exact date


"I was thinking about it that
night," Ray said. "I decided to
give it a try."
Now with experience under
the hood, Ray admits, "This is
a hard, hard business."
"We were Yankees, and that
made it harder yet."
From washing cars to
writing the original cash sales
receipts, the Pettits did it all
themselves.
"We probably did it the hard
way," Judy said.
Even so, the Pettits have
been successful, and Ray said
they even began to speak like
Southerners.

Success: a

driving force
In the 32 years of business,
Ray said he has seen
approximately 16 other car
dealers come and go out of
business io Lake Butler.
The Pettits say, though, that
their formula foi success is not
a hard one.
Judy said they made it so
long in the car industry by.
"doing it the right way .
Ray added, "Almost every
day is a learning lesson."
"We've always tried to be
fair with people," Judy said.
"For 34 years, we've never
been in court. We've never

Timing also played its part.
"Car dealers now are so
diversified," Judy said, making
the business even harder for
smaller dealers.
The Pettits reached out to
markets in surrounding
counties to draw in business.
Half of their customers have
come from neighboring
counties, they said.
In Union County, Ray said

Making friends
Being new to a town, not
knowing very many people
and looking for jobs, the Pettits
were determined to work hard
for what they wanted.
Judy said, "We started off
with absolutely nothing."
For the past seven to eight
years, their business has
brought in $1 million per year
in total sales.
This has afforded them the
opportunity to build their
dream home, which they have
lived in for the past two years.
Making their own paychecks
was a main benefit of their
business, but they also gained
friends out of their customers
and those they met at auctions.
The Pettits said they met so
many people when they would
close their office one to two
days -a week to travel the
highways to car auctions.
California, New Mexico,
Denver, Salt Lake City,
Oklahoma City and Las Vegas
were only a few of the stops
along the way.

people would stop in and buy
cars, but that wasn't the end of

Tell someone
about elder abuse
Elder-abuse comes in many
different forms. While most
people may believe that elder
abuse is just physical abuse,
they are wrong.
Elder abuse includes
physical abuse, emotional
abuse, exploitation, neglect
and abandonment.
Things such as cuts, bruises,
welts and other physical
ailments that appear to be
caused by someone else
usually characterize physical
abuse. Most elders will not tell
anyone if they are being
abused, so it is up to you to
pay attention and look for the
warning signs.
Elder abuse does not just
result in physical or emotional
harm, but can even result in
death. If 'you suspect elder
abuse, you should report it.
The Abuse Hdtline is
available 24 hours a day and
can be reached at (800) 96-
ABUSE (or 800-962-2873).
Please report suspected elder
abuse. By doing so, you can
save someone's life.

1920s brochure shows grand plans for Lake Butler


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
Lake Butler is thriving as a
year-round tourist playground.
Two hotels, the richest farm
land and 14 passenger trains
per day take people to and
from Jacksonville.
If this doesn't sound like
Lake Butler to you, it's with
good cause.
The items described above
are from an early 1900s
brochure from a real estate
company that was looking to
develop the city, especially the
area around the lake.
The brochure is in the
possession of Marjorie
Driggers, Union County's
historian.
Driggers said, "My daughter
found a brochure about Lake
Butler published in 1921-1922,


concerning the town being one
of many developments of a
real estate business in
Jacksonville, entitled King
Properties Inc."
"She paid $10 to a dealer in
Pennsylvania-what a find!"
While Driggers is very much
a lover of history, she thought
the brochure was interesting at
the time.
But she really became more
surprised by the plans laid out
for the city in the brochure
when a recent article in the
Union County Times covered
Plum Creek's plan to annex
nearly 4,000 acres into the
city.
The site will be developed in
small sections in a period of
15-20 years.
With the view of the lake
just outside her front window,


,, '-'^ '-- '2 it -

, ,. --- -- : '


( .|___-- ., =^,'-.


--
Sr-





This drawing from the brochure depicts Lake Butler having hotels, a club house,
cottages and even many recreational activities for people to enjoy.


Driggers said she began to
think back to the brochure
when she read that article.
In an interview Friday, she
described what King
Properties had in store for
Lake Butler in the early 1900s.
"The, brochure is most
interesting, telling of Lake
Butler being the beauty spot of
Florida, here in north central
Florida," Driggers said.
"It states that 'climatic
conditions are ideal 12 months
of each year, where orange
blossoms laugh at the seldom
visits of frost and cool lake
breezes protect the inhabitants
from prostrating heat waves.'"


"Lake Butler-nesting on
the shores of a beautiful body
of water bearing the same
name-is the county seat of
-Union County, two hours from
Jacksonville, the metropolis of
Florida.
"On the front of the
brochure is a small' log cabin
office on the shores of Lake
Butler.
"When I was a little girl, I
well remember this building on
Northwest Fourth Avenue,"
Driggers said.
"This brochure could not
have come at a more
a-ppropri ate .- --time with
interesting people showing


citizens of our little town some
future plans for property
around our beautiful lake.
"Something that was a
dream of King Properties over
87 years ago is about to come
true," Driggers said of
development around the lake.
King Properties, listed in the
brochure as being located at
408 W. Forsyth St. in
Jacksonville at the time, had
plans of hotels', sailboats in the
lake, a club house, cottages,
pecan groves, banana and
orange trees, horseback trails
and other recreational sites,
such as an 18-hole golf course.
The company described


Lake Butler as a place where
"peace reigns supreme."
Hotels and golf courses don't
seem to be what Plum Creek
has in mind, but having been
in Lake Butler all her life,
Driggers is excited to see
someone realize the beauty and
all Lake Butler'has to offer.
She said, "May all ... look
forward to Lake Butler
growing into the 'beauty spot
of Florida.'"

undergo total knee

When all other options for
treating severe osteoarthritis of
the knee have been exhausted,
artificial knee joints offer a
solution with a high, rate of
success. But how should you
prepare for this major
operation, and what can you do
afterwards, to protect the new
joint and keep it intact for
years to come?

.LETTERS TO EDITOR:


Leave Colley
Road alone
Dear Editor:
Seventy-two families living
in townhouse-style apartments
on 9.37 acres in the middle of a
well established, single-family
residential neighborhood that
has a narrow and poorly
maintained road, an elementary
school, a hospital, and a
nursing home located within it,
is not a logical plan for land
use.
As concerned residents living
on Colley Road, we are asking
all Starke residents to
understand what is being
proposed, how it will affect
Colley Road, and how this
type of mishandling of land use
will affect all of Starke. Please
support us in stopping this
rezoning.
The owners of two lots on
Colley Road are petitioning the
city council to change the lots'
zoning status. I.ot one is 7.71
acres. more or less, currently
zoned light industry. This lot
does not front Colley Road.
The second lot is 1.66 acres,
more or less, currently zoned
single family residential. This
lot does front Colley Road.
The owners' intentions are to
combine the two lots, thus
becoming one 9.37-acre lot,
and rezone the property to
multifamily residential. If
rezoning is permitted. the
owners have agreed to sell the
property to a development
group that is standing ready to
build 72 three- and four-
bedroom unit townhouses.
It Colley Road gains 72 new
residences. It is probable that
as many as 105 new
automobiles will be using the
road two to three times a day.
The new residents could add as
many as 300 new automobile
trips on Colley Road daily.
Colley Road is the home of
32 single-family dwellings.
Shands of Starke hospital is on
the corner of Colley Road and
C.R. 230. Southside
Elementary is on the corners of
Colley Road, Stansberry Street
and S.R. 100. Many students
use Colley Road to get to and
from school.
' Traffic congestion is high
and there are bottlenecks on
school days between 7:20-8
a.m. and 1:15-2 p.m. The
point we hope to have made
here is that Colley Road is an
important traific artery for, not
only Colley Road residents,
but also for many of the
students who attend Southside
Elementary and those, who use
Colley Road as a thoroughfare
to the hospital and nursing
home.


Three hundred new
automobile trips on Colley
Road will cause unreasonable
traffic congestion. It will
worsen the bottleneck caused
by students coming to and
leaving Southside Elementary.
This type of heavy traffic in a
residential neighborhood with
school children present leads to
drivers' frustration and added
risk.
The physical condition of
Colley Road needs to be
understood. Colley Road is a
two-lane residential street. Two
cars sharing the road will leave
no room for one to error; when
driving down Colley Road you
must be sure to stay in your
lane. Colley Road is a narrow
road! A drainage ditch runs on
one side or the other for more
than 50 percent the length of
Colley Road. The drainage
ditch is between one and two
feet deep.
A sidewalk runs on one side
of the road or the other for the
whole length of Colley Road,
well accommodating the
children who walk on Colley
Road to Southside Elementary.
There is anywhere between no
room to six feet of room left
on either side of the road before
you are in a resident's yard.
The condition of the surface
of Colley Road is poor. If 300
new automobile trips are made
each day on Colley Road, it is
reasonable to believe that the
road would have to be repaved,
maybe even widened. We ask.
how can Colley Road
withstand the impact of this
additional traffic without an
unreasonable financial cost to
residents and Starke taxpayers?
We ask readers, do you think
that because the road is so
narrow and in poor condition,
that with the added congestion,
it will cause risk to the
children using the sidewalk to
get to school?
We petition that this is the
wrong use of this land and that
it should remain zoned single-
family residential.
Starke residents, thank you

for your support. Please
contact your city councilmen.
Ask them what you can do to
stop any change of land use
that does not benefit the
community whole.

week's paper concerning police
consolidation were very
informative as well as
important to the future of the
citizens of Bradford County as
a whole.
It is no secret that operating
expenses for critical services,
such as public safety, is an
issue that both the city and
county government struggle
with every year. The bottom
line is that both governments
have only so much revenue
coming in. The expenses
associated with operating a law
enforcement agency are costly
and keep going up every year.
Doesn't it make sense then,
to consolidate the costs of two
independent agencies, with two
independent infrastructures into
one agency with the common
goal of providing first-class
law enforcement to Bradford
county citizens as a whole?
You will have those who
will argue that if the city gives
up its police department, the
citizens who live inside the
city will encounter a reduction
in services and response times.
I believe this to be incorrect.
To be effective, the new
consolidated agency would have
to divide the county up into
specific geographical areas of
responsibility which would
ensure that all areas, to include
the city limits, would receive
equal police service. With
proper leadership and direction,
the city would continue to
receive the same service that it
enjoys today, or possibly
improved service.
The county, on the other
hand, would enjoy an
improvement in service. My
understanding is that currently
the sheriffs office has two to
three deputies and a supervisor
covering the entire county on
any given shift.
This is through no fault of
any single person, but instead
has to do with budget
constraints that are sometimes


outside the control of local
government. Having worked in
Bradford County under these
conditions for a number of
years as a deputy and
supervisor, I can tell you that
it is difficult to provide the law
enforcement services that our
citizens deserve with current
staffing, as it relates to the
geographical size of the
county.
At present, the police
officers in the city are limited
in their authority to enforce the
law inside the city limits.
Undcr a consolidated sheriffs
office, law enforcement officers
would have jurisdiction
countywide. This would mean
a substantial increase in the
number of law enforcement
officers with countywide
jurisdiction working at any
given time.
There are a lot of other
benefits such as continuity of
government, pooling of
resources, and a unified effort
toward crime fighting county
wide that would result from
consolidation. This is a very
important issue for our county
and I encourage all Bradford
County citizens to take an
active role on this issuc.
As for the comment in the
article about who is the most
likely person to be heading up
the consolidated agency, that
will be for the voters of this
county to decide and time will
tell who their choice is.

Pining for an old remedy


I recently visited the pharmacy in
one of the four local chain stores to
purchase a bottle of turpentine, a staple
in virtually all general merchandise
stores a few years ago. The young
pharmacist obviously wasn't familiar
with the product but said he thought it
was in stock. A search revealed there
was none on the shelves, and he asked
my reason for wanting it. I replied
that I planned to try it as a nasal spray
for persistent sinus problems.
He knew nothing about the properties
or origin of turpentine.
Turpentine is both a medical and
commercial product. In medicine, it
was utilized as a liniment for man and
beast, generously applied to sprains
-and bruises, and sometimes used as
a gargle for cold and flu symptoms.
Its fumes opened nasal passages
before the advent of patented nasal
sprays and it became the standard for
whatever ailed a person.
Turpentine has been replaced by
drugs that are much costlier but no
more effective in combating many
ailments.
Turpentine is used commercially in
paints, varnishes and related products.
Byproducts of the turpentine industry
were used in ship building, hence
the term "naval stores" refers to pine
tar, pitch and gum produced in the
turpentine distilling operation.
The turpentine industry, which came
to a close in the 1960s, was confined
to the southern states from the East
Coast to Texas, the area in which
the long-leaf yellow pine is native.
The virgin stand in some areas had
trees 5 feet in diameter at the _butt,
.-and-grew--so--thick-a-wagon couldn't
be driven between them. It is a slow- ,
growing tree, requiring 50-60 years to
reach maturity, and makes the finest
construction timber in the industry.
Unfortunately, the original stand has
beea harvested and largely replaced
with fast growing hybrid pines that do
not produce the pine gum required for
turpentine, nor does it make the fine
lumber of former pines.
Raiford and many other rural-
communities and, small towns
throughout the South owe their
existence to turpentine camps that
began with a turpentine operator
setting up shop with a small operation
and little "board-and batting" homes
for workers. Small one-room schools
were often built at or near turpentine
stills to educate workers' children
and nearby farm children. Turpentine
owners and operators often became
large land owners since land was
cheap and was often included in
granting turpentine rights to tap the
pine trees.
Pine trees produce a sticky substance,
pine gum, when scarred. Workers use
a special tool to inflict a diagonal cut
near the ground to begin the "boxing,"
followed by a worker nailing a tin on
the tree at an angle in order for the
gum to flow into a clay pot. Every
so often a worker adds another slash
to the face of the tree as the old cut


heals over, in order to keep the tree
producing gum. From time to time
the clay pots are emptied into barrels
and carted to the still for heating and
straining into a salable product.
In this area, most gum was shipped
to the naval store in Valdosta, Ga.,
for processing, with turpentine being
only one of several products made
from the raw material.
The boxing of pine trees came to
an end when stands of yellow pines
became scarce and turpentine became
a product of laboratories. The use of
turpentine in the home was replaced
by patented and highly advertised
compounds, and a generation has
come of age that doesn't know about
the many qualities of the elixir from
pine trees.
Long-leaf yellow pines have a large
heart, with a narrow band around the
outer part known locally as the "sap."
When the sap rots away leaving the
heart, it weathers into a very hard
wood; in fact, after several years a
heart pine board cannot be penetrated
with a nail. A hole has to be pre-
drilled into a board prior to fastening
it to another. The heart of stumps will
remain for a century, and has to be
dug out of the ground or blasted out
with dynamite. Southerners call them
lighteredd stumps."
Pine trees growing along the coastal
area do not get as large or as tall
as trees growing inland, but they
have a large "heart" and are rich in
pine oils. Lightered stumps were in
great demand until the supply was'
exhausted, with the Hercules Power
Co. gathering stumps throughout this
area and using some of the components
in, the manufacture of gun powder.
Very few old pine stumps are to be
found anywhere in Florida, and no
more are being produced.
Lightered stumps were gathered
statewide and shipped to facilities
known as "retorts," a kiln in which
stumps were loaded on a cart and
rolled into a large, high temperature,
oven and reduced to charcoal, with the
pine. oil being collected and refined
into turpentine and other products.
Unlike oak charcoal, the pine charcoal
cannot be burned in a conventional
kitchen stove. It creates such high
temperatures the stove warps and
buckles and is destroyed.
People living in the area of an
active retort find the fumes clear
the sinuses, and stuffed noses are
unknown. In those days, turpentine
was cheap and was to be found in
all medicine cabinets. If it had been
priced at $10 per bottle, it would
have been considered a "miracle"
medication. Alas, we residents of the
South are victims of pharmaceutical
laboratories that found higher profits
in other mixtures and relegated a fine
all-purpose medication to second-
class status.
We are the poorer for its demise.

Thank you!
Dear Editor:
Thank you, city of Starke
summer and after-school
program!
My family and I would like
to thank the city of Starke
recreation employees for all
that they do throughout the
school year and summer
vacation. I have had the
pleasre--of my children
attending the summer program
and the after-school program
for the past two years. The
staff for these programs truly
care about my children and are
more like friends than authority
figures. It is not every day that
you find complete strangers
that are willing to go above
and beyond to make sure that
your children have a full day of
activities scheduled. I know
personally that there are several
staff members that go above
and beyond the call of duty and
for this we would like to say
Thank you!
These programs are a lot
more than just day care to
parents like me. I go to work
knowing that my children, are,
well taken care of and will not
want for anything. The
recreation department is the
,best thing that has happened to
the city of Starke's children and
I would personally like to
thank them for all that they do.
Dalton and Dylan Teston
would like to individually
thank: Ms. Uma, Ms. Mary,
Ms. Cassandra, Ms. Allen and
Ms. Alica for everything that
they do.
Keep up the great work!

New library
or happily
ever after
Dear Editor:
My name is Mary Brown. I
am the director of the Union
County Public Library and I
would like to tell you a story.
Once upon a time, there was
a rural community named
Union County that did not
have a library. A small gr6up
of people from this community
got together and decided to
create a library. This group
called themselves "Friends."
At first, the library- was
contained to a small closet, but
soon after the local community
decided they needed more books
and a place to put them. It was
time to build a "public library"
where everyone could gather,
find books and learn.
The people in charge of the
rural community thought that
it all sounded like a great idea,
but wondered where they would
get the money to have such a
place. The answer became
clear. "We'll let everyone
decide by voting and they will
give money to fund this
library!" So, the people of the
community voted and they
indeed said, "Yes!" we will pay
to have such a place..
As it turns out, there are
more twists to this story, as
stories often go.
The people soon learned that
they had to vote every two
years in order to keep their
library, but they didn't seem to
mind. Each time they voted,
the people said, "Yes! We want
to keep our library!" For many


t.-%


years the library served its
community and the people
Sgrew to love the library very
much! The people of Union
County visited their library
often for books, movies,
storytime, computers and much
more.
One day, the people who
worked at the library and the
people of the community
realized that their library was
too small and they would have
to build a new library. Once
again, the people in charge of
the rural community thought
that it all sounded like a great
idea, but wondered where they
would get the money to have
such a place.
Finally, the people in charge
decided that they would ask for
some money from the higher
government authority, the
state. The state government
people said, "Yes, we will help
you build a bigger library, but
we will only give you some of
the money that you will need."
The people in the rural
community of Union County
were very excited to learn that
they would soon get a bigger
library!
Still, there are more turns to
this story;
The people of Union County
soon learned that they would
have to help-a lot-in order
to get their new, bigger library.
The people said, "Yes, we want
to help! What do we need to
do?" So, the dedicated library
workers got busy coming up
with ways that the community
could help build their library.
The people helped by going
to carnivals, yard sales, car
washes, auctions and dinner
events. The people also helped
by putting their spare change


and dollars in jars. In addition,
the people donated so they
could have their names (and the
names of other people they
loved) in the new library on a
beautiful mural.
This is where the story
almost ends.
The time finally arrived
when the community would
begin to build its new and
bigger library. The people who
worked at the library were very
happy about all the help that
the community had given. The
people in charge continued to
say, "Yes! We want to have a
bigger library in our
community." So, an architect
and a construction manager
were hired and they drew
pictures and made plans for the
new library. Still, the, people
in charge and the workers knew
that they would need even more
money.
And so the story goes on.
Epilogue:
The construction of the new
library in Union County is set
to begin in just a few short
months. The new library will
nearly triple in size and will be
built with future expansion in
mind.
The construction budget is
still experiencing some
shortfalls, but with the
continued support of our
wonderful, giving community
we will see this project to its
successful end. It is a tribute to
the people of Union County
that this library is being built
and truly, the Union County
Public Library belongs to each
and every one of you. Thank
you! I will close with love,
(for this is an act of love.)

CRIME


Couple
charged with
cruelty to
animals
A couple was charged with
cruelty to animals following a
two-county investigation.
Wesley Clyde Farrell and his
wife, Brenda Farrell, were the
subjects of a conspiracy to
commit murder in Keystone
Heights. Brenda Farrell told
deputies her husband may be
plotting to have her killed,
according to Clay Deputy J.C.
Parker. She told of her husband
exposing her to some of his
sexual fantasies that became
increasingly bizarre. She said
his fantasy was to bring
another female into the home
and have Brenda Farrell attack
the woman and knock her out.
The fantasy would then have
Brenda Farrell decapitate the
woman after she was hanged by
the neck, Deputy Parker said.
A video tape. made by
Wesley Farrell depicting sexual
intercourse and animal torture
and mutilation was viewed and
placed in evidence. The tapes
were dated December 2006 and
February 2007, Deputy Parker
said.
The location of the incidents
was established as in the
Hampton area and the case was
referred to Bradford County,
according to Bradford Sgt.
Robert Smith.
Wesley Clyde Farrell, 42, of
Interlachen was charged with
four counts felony cruelty to

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 National 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,


The Sugar Tree Caf6 was welcomed into downtown Starke by the
chamber with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Aug. 3.

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 intersection:
-Slow down and prepare to
stop when a light turns yellow.


-Yield to pedestrians. They
have the right of way
regardless of whether the
intersection is marked or
unmarked.
-Proceed through
intersections with caution,
even after the light turns green.
Remember to drive
defensively.
-Come to a complete stop
before turning right on red. It's
the law.
-Yield to vehicles making
a U-turn when turning right on
red.
Local agencies will have


plain-clothes officers in
unmarked vehicles, posing as
pedestrians and watching the
intersection for red light
runners. They will relay the
information to uniformed
officers who will be waiting
around the corner to issue
citations for violations. These
citations will cost violators
$188.50.
In addition, the national
Labor Day DUI enforcement
period will run from Aug. 17
through Sept. 3. Numerous
DUI checkpoints will be held
throughout the area.

Bounce off the walls (and floors) at USA Gymnastics


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
T, I,,'' "' aP'lt 'Writer
i : year ; 1'"' marks 20
years U.S.A. Gymnastics has
boen in business.
it all started in 1988 as a
-, business using a van,
truck and trailer setting up
mobile gymnustic sites for
several years at Bradford
Middle School, the Starke
Recreation Center. Bradford
!.':" School and Lake Butler
M.,.h.c School. They even
rented out the space that was
once the old c&B Furniture in
Starke, but knew they couldn't
remain there because the
, nIIIi, were not high enough


nor did it provide adequate
space. A new building was
established about a year ago in
the industrial park off of S.R.
100 at 140 L.M. Gaines Blvd.,
giving them 5,000 square feet
of gymnastics area.
"We still have another 3,000
square feet of room available
to grow," said gymnast coach
and owner Ronnie
McReynolds. At present, they
do not offer competitions
because the vault runway is
not long enough, but they do
provide regulation equipment
(beams, bars and- floors)along
with their latest edition of
rings added two months ago.
"I know a lot of our students
come here simply because they
are burned out on grueling


competitions at other places,
but it is still something we are
looking into maybe starting in
the future," McReynolds said.
The gym offers a good
balance of training with a
series of equipment designed
for men and women alike. For
women, they provide floor
exercise, balance beams, the
uneven bar and table vault. For
men, there is floor exercise,
parallel bars and horizontal (or
high) bar, rings, pommel horse
and vault table.
They have a tumbling strip
that lands into a 5-foot deep pit
of Timffi-where students can
practice their jumps and flips,
landing completely safe in any
position.
During the summer break,


U.S.A. Gymnastics has been
busy with 10 different summer
camps, seven of which were
held at the Starke 'facility. The
other three camps have taken
place in Baker County for the
past two years.
"We have rented out space
at the intermediate school in
Baker County since 1992,
offering gymnastics one day a
week during the school year
and serving more than 85
students," McReynolds said.
His wife, Joni, helps out there
as well as during a two-week
camp in High Springs called
Pray then Play. Joni also owns
a pre-school in Alachua.
In Starke, the summer camps
have been week-long all-day
gymnastics training, providing


seven different aspects
throughout the course of the
day. On the fourth day of each
camp, the gymnasts get an
afternoon of swimming in
Gainesville.
Regular classes at U.S.A.
Gymnastics are held
throughout the week in
beginning, advanced and
intermediate gymnastics, and
beginning and advanced
tumbling.
Classes start at age 3 and are
one hour a week for $40 a
month, two hours per week at
$64 a month and three hours


per week at $80 a month.
McReynolds said he offers
discounts to additional family
members. Private lessons are
also available. Currently
registering for fall classes,
McReynolds said a new
offering this year is adult
classes.
"We are also looking to
increase our boys gymnastics
enrollment," he said.
Many view gymnastics as a
female sport, but anyone.

Tax-free shopping continues through August 13


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Some say this is the best
time of the year to shop.
Others say they aren't so sure
because they feel most items
hit the sale racks right after
school lets out for the summer
or just after school starts back
upin the fall.
According to the National
Retail Federation's 2007
Consumer Intentions and
Actions Back-to-School
survey, families with school-
age children are expected to
spend $563 on back-to-school
merchandise. During tax-free
shopping week, that amounts
to a tax savings of $39.44 in
Bradford County and $35.22
for those doing their shopping
in Gainesville.
In between backpacks, lunch
sacks, three-ring binders,
composition pads, spiral
notebooks, loose notebook
paper, two dozen pencils, pens
and erasers, duo-tang folders,
scissors, glue, protractors,
calculators and locker fees,
this author spent nearly $300
during tax free -week just to get
five children ready with their
required school supplies. Don't
even think about the clothing
costs.,
The sales tax holiday
continues this week through
midnight, Monday, Aug. 13.

RIGHT: Ashley Fanning,

Single mom Denise Christian of Keystone
Heights said living on a tight budget makes it
difficult to buy all of the things her three
daughters need for school. She does it
because she has to, and something else likely
goes temporarily unpaid. Two backpacks and
lunch sacks for twin daughters Angle and
Cristina, 9, were close to running $80 when one
spotted lunch sacks for $3.99 a piece.
"I've taught my girls to be smart shoppers,"
Christian said. "We buy the basic school items
from Wal-Mart and the Dollar General, but we
have to wait and buy a little bit each week as
we can afford it."
She was very proud of her oldest daughter,
Deanna, ,.ho located two pairs of jeans and
two shirts, all for $65 on clearance at another
store.


Craig Slocum Sr. was
t Afound shopping at Wal-
n Mart, getting his two
children, Cortez Slocum

ready for school in

their cousin, Kenyatta

mother, Maria Slocum,
said her family starts
W their school shopping
W -in July, watching for
good prices.
A "And we even save
Some of our shopping
for after the first week
.V of school when many
items go on sale," she
said.



August 18 luau planned to raise

funds for Kramer scholarship


Cathey Pitts said when shopping for her kids
or even herself, it takes budgeting.
"I look for sales and things like the tax-free
shopping week, and I also shop at Bealls
because they have a 20- percent discount after
you purchase a certain amount," she said.

2 former UF standouts work volleyball camp at UCHS


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Girls wanting the
opportunity to brush up on or
improve their volleyball skills
had the opportunity to do so
with the help of 'two
professional players during an
All-American Volleyball
Camp hosted at Union County
High School Aug. 2-4.
Approximately 15 high-
school-aged girls participated
in.the three-day camp. The
camp was open to anyone
within the established age
range, but many of the girls
were members of the Union


County High School volleyball
program.
Perry Davis, Union's varsity
head coach, said the camp
made a lot of sense in his
effort to build a competitive
program. Girls' fees were less
than if they had traveled to
participate in a camp
elsewhere, plus they received
instruction from former
University of Florida standouts
Benavia Jenkins and Sherri
Williams.
"Where else do you get
personal instruction from two
of UF's finest who are playing
pro volleyball?" Davis asked.


Jenkins, who played at UF
from 1999 through 2003, and
Williams, who played at UF
from 2000 through 2004, said
they enjoyed the opportunity
of being able to participate in
the All-American Volleyball
Camps.
"It's always a positive
experience," said Jenkins, who
played professionally in
Turkey last year.
Williams, who has played
professionally in Germany
since 2005, said the camp
participants seem to be able to
relate easily to her, Jenkins and
the others who represent the

Camps.
"It was not that long ago we
were right there with them,"
said Williams, who is 25.
Davis said the camp
participants "loved" Jenkins
and Williams as well as the
personal attention they
received from each.
"They've been real
personable," Davis said of
Jenkins and Williams. "The
girls just feel like they can ask
them anything."
Williams admitted she and
Jenkins couldn't "change the
world" in three days' time, but
they could help girls open their
minds to something different
as far as introducing new ideas
and techniques.
Then again, any instruction,
regardless of the amount of
time they had to give it, is
helpful, Jenkins said, adding,
"They can only get better."
One thing the duo made a
conscious effort to do was
provide a fun atmosphere,
Williams said. That was
demonstrated by several team-
building exercises and games
the girls participated in.
One such exercise had camp
participants divided into two
teams that took opposite ends
Sof the court. A player from
each team went to her
opponents' side of the net and
Slay d. rn on the court. The
other girls then began serving
balls in an attempt to hit their
teammate. Each player who
successfully hit her teammate
joined her on the floor. That
went on until all of a team's
players, were laying on the
court.
Another game, called
"Circle the Wagon," had girls

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
on. 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
phones and such. By the early
morning, she had mastered the
console and was on the air
doing live broadcasts.
That's how it all started.
Since then, Kramer's voice
was familiar to WEAG
listeners. She was on

Braddy aims to make French fun


SFCC Andrews
Center is offering
the language for the
first time

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Imagine going off to
summer camp for the first
tiie. You're nervous about
leaving home. You don't want
to be in a strange place
surrounded by people you
don't know.
However, when it's time to
come home, you feel reluctant
._to. doso-because you actually
had a good time. You made a
lot of new friends.
The preceding paragraphs
won't be found in Santa Fe
Community College's course
description of French 1, but
they could very well sum up
the course that will be taught
by Alexandra Braddy at the
Andrews Center in Starke this
fall.
Students learning a language
can.be nervous and spend too
much time focusing on %hat
they doh'I understand or hear.
Braddy said. That's why she
attempts to make her classes
fun. The more fun someone is
having, the more relaxed they
are. Consequently, the more
relaxed students are, the more
they wind up learning.
"My students this summer
have equated the class to being
grown-up summer camp,"
Braddy said. "You get to know
everybody, and you're going
to miss them when they're
gone.
"It's really a lot of fun."
Laughter is a big part of
creating that fun. Braddy said
her five children are often a
source of that laughter. She
shares stories about her
children with her class. In turn,-
she encourages her students to
share personal stories as well.
"I think that's really a fun
way to get people to open up,
by making it, on some level,
personal," Braddy said.
Aside from having fun,
students can expect to learn
enough French so that they can
pick up a book written in
French and be able to read it
with assistance from a
dictionary, Braddy said.
She said students can also
expect to be able to
communicate with people in
French-speaking countries.
Students may also wind up
learning a bit more about
something more familiar to


them.
"They can also expect to
learn their own language a
little bit better," Braddy said.
"A lot of times, looking at


another language helps you to
look at your own in a different
light. You learn a lot more
about it-why you do certain
things and how it works."
Braddy said her class is
...deoted to munch" nore than
teaching people i,:v li :i rle k.-
Frehch'.
"What I would like to do is
really teach my students not
only about the language, but
about the culture because
culture is really the foundation
of any language."
Food is one big part of that,
she said, adding that it is the


I


foundation of any culture.
Literature is also important.
She likes to bring in literature&-
written for children or young
adults because it adds another
dimension of fun whil&also"'
demonstrating the daily
language.
"I don't think it would
benefit my students if I
brought in something like 'La
Chanson de Roland,' which is
like an epic poem from
medieval France," Braddy
said. "I do bring in some more
modern children's poetry or
music or things like that. They
really seem to enjoy those."
Braddy has been teaching
French at the college level
since 1998. It is her first.
language. She grew up in
French-speaking countries and
has been in the United States
for the last 15 years after
moving from Canada.
Florida was a familiar place
to Braddy and her family-
they would spend summers in
the southern portion of the
state.
Braddy's father was the
impetus for a permanent move
to Florida. He was from
-Morocco and hated the cold of
Canada.
"He really wanted to move
down here," Braddy said. "We
were in the process of doing
just that when he passed away.
We decided just to go ahead
and move."
It was while attending the

University of Florida that
Braddy said she "just kind of
fell into" teaching. She began
teaching French at UF, but it
was not until she took a class
with anthropology professor
Martha Hardman that she
-really began to teach, she said.
Braddy had already taught
French for a semester, but said
she found it difficult to truly
understand why students
would have difficulties
learning a second language.
Then she took the class with
Hardman, which opened her
eyes.
"She was the best teacher I
ever had," Braddy said. "She
taught me how to look at
languages, _how they --really
frame people's minds and why
it would be so challenging to
learn another language.
Braddy said Hardman gave
her a new perspective on
teaching someone a second
language-one that compared
the process of doing so to
fitting pieces together in a
puzzle.

TIME T(
When you've found the
home of your dreams, you
don't want to delay in produc-
ing your offer to purchase, so
it's a great benefit to know
what to expect in advance.
While there is no foolproof
formula for negotiating a fair
price, you can begin by look-
ing at recent sales in the
neighborhood and comparing
their list price to their final
sale price.
If homes are generally
selling at 5% below list, you
have that starting point for-
determining your offer. Once
a price has been accepted, it's
time to put it into high gear
by obtaining your financing,
scheduling a home inspection,
and establishing a closing
date. Your offer should be
contingent upon securing a

loan and a satisfactory "walk-
through" before closing.
Earnest money, or the
"deposit" on your purchase,
will be placed in escrow. It
will eventually transfer to the
sellers, or will be refunded to
you if any unsettled issues
prevent the closing of the
transaction. If major repairs
are needed, the seller may fix
the problems, or offer a
reduction in price. With such
a contingency clearly stated
in your offer, you can walk
away from the deal if the sell-
er doesn't comply.
As these few considera-
tions are the tip of the ice-
berg, your best bet is to
always work through interme-
diaries, whose objectivity and
experience help guarantee a
smooth transaction.

Youth benefit from generosity at BC 4-H auction


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The motto of 4-H is, "To
make the best better."
Members of Bradford
County's various 4-H clubs
received the support necessary
to live up to that motto after
the organization recently
raised approximately $9,000.
The Bradford County 4-H
auction made up the bulk of


the actual $8,978.50 total. The
annual event was augmented
by a silent auction and dinner
sales (Western Steer Family
Steakhouse provided fried-
chicken dinners), while cash
donations were also made to
the program prior to the
auction.
Members of the community
donated approximately 70
items/packages valued at

approximately $7,000 for this
year's auction. Items included
tool sets for those who like to
work hard and golf and spa
packages for those who like to
relax after a hard day's work.
There was a little bit of
something for everybody, from
animal feed and hay to baskets
full of various items for the cat
or dog in your life.
One such basket auctioned
off appealed to those who like
the Gators as it contained
various orange and blue
paraphernalia, while another
item--a mounted alligator
head-appealed to those who
like real gators.
Auctioneer Bill Elrod of
Elrod Auctions had the crowd
laughing as he attempted to
secure higher and higher bids
for each item. For example,
one item was a basket that
included 11 jars of jelly.
"Try one of them," Elrod
said of the jelly. "If you don't
like it, give the rest away for
Christmas."
One of the more exciting
moments of the night occurred
when Richard Androlevich and
Sylvia Tatum got into a
bidding war over a "Death by
Chocolate" dessert made by
one of the 4-H members. Elrod
cajoled one last bid out of

split into pairs, jump on and
off of their partners' backs, run
around in a circle and crawl
through their partners' legs
toward a pile of volleyballs.
The number of volleyballs was
one less than the number of
pairs competing. A pair was
put out if it did not gain
possession of one of the balls.
The girls appeared to be
enjoying themselves. Davis
said. the members of the
school's junior varsity and
varsity teams who participated
definitely wanted the school to
host other such camps in the
future.
It is that interest in the sport
that Davis is looking for. That
goes a long way in building a
program.

a successful volleyball
program in Lake Butler. Last
year, the team won nine
matches-it's best total in
approximately 10 years.
Also,_two current players are
also participating in AAU
competition, which Davis said
also helps players get
recognized by college coaches.
As for this year, a large
number of girls has show
interest in playing.
"Last year, we had about
seven to eight girls on jv,"
Davis said. "This year, we
have 36 girls trying out for jv."
Davis said credit for any
success that comes in the
future has to go to Cindy
Mattox and Trudy Andrews for
their work-and Andrews'
continued work-at the middle
school level.
"They're the ones who've
helped the program up here (at
the high school)," Davis said.

"When I started teaching

Jdst as that was defining
moment in Braddy's teaching
