City, housing authority

differ on back tax issues


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
During the regularly
scheduled Jan.14 city council
meeting, Union County
Housing Authority director
Doris Thomas spoke regarding
issues surrounding the
organization's unpaid pilot tax
'bill.
"The last letter I received
from you makes it appear as if
I am trying to get out of paying
the bill," Thomas said, "and
that's not what I am doing."
Back in October, Thomas
said her auditors recommended
to her that-she write a letter to
the city requesting forgiveness
for two year's worth of unpaid
pilot taxes on the
organization's 122 rental units
in Union County.
Thomas said that the unpaid
tax bill was something that got
started before she was
appointed as director. The
unpaid. taxes are for fiscal year
end March 31, 2006, in the-
amount of $8,462 and fiscal
year end March 31, 2007, in
the amount of $5,367, for a
total of $13,829.
Thomas said her auditor told
her it was not unusual for an
organization to request
forgiveness on an unpaid bill


from time to time.
The letter Thomas wrote
was brought up in the
November city council
meeting. City Manager John
Berchtold told the council that
due to the new state tax
reform, he felt there would be
potential negative
consequences for the city if
they allowed the bill to go
unpaid. He further
recommended the amount not
be forgiven, but that he be
allowed to work out a payment
plan with the housing
authority.
Thomas said she was not
properly notified of the city's
decision. on the matter. "I
didn't receive a letter or a call
from Mr. .Berchtold, but
instead I received a response
by reading about it in the
newspaper," Thomas said.
Berchtold provided the
Times with a copy of his Nov.
8 letter, which he said was
mailed to Thomas. The letter
notifies the housing authority
of the city's willingness to
discuss payment terms for the
back taxes. Berchtold also
provided the Times with a

UC has record high

number of graduates


Recently, Gov. Charlie Crist
and Education Commissioner
Jeanine Blomberg announced
that Florida's graduation rate
rose to 72.4 percent in 2006-
07, an increase of 1:4 percent
compared to last year's rate of
71 percent.
Union County schools
graduation rate for the 2006-07
school year was ,81..7 percent,
over nine percent higher than
the state average and greater
than any of its neighboring
districts. Union County has the
highest graduation rate among
Baker (77.9), Dixie (75.3),
Clay (75.3), Columbia (74.1),
Bradford (70.7) and Alachua
(68.2) counties.
In a statement from
Superintendent Carlton Faulk's
office, he cited the increasing
graduation rate as a
culmination of the efforts of
students, parents, faculty and
staff in Union County schools.
"From the first day of
school, we are promoting the
importance of education and
particularly high school
graduation. Students are being
taught to understand the future
and the opportunities that lie
ahead for them as they study
and seek to complete their
education," Faulk said.


Faulk expressed his pride in
the hard work and dedication
put forth by the faculty, staff
and administration of each
school ip their quest for
excellence. He also
emphasized how pleased he

Real estate market and the


proposed tax amendment


Submitted By: Amber Roberts-
Crawford, Broker/Owner
Swift Creek Realty

While it is common
knowledge that sales figures
and total sales numbers are
down, this topic is in need of
clarification. I hope to shed
some light on the current
market condition and help to
place it in perspective.
According to National
Association of Realtors (NAR)
senior economist Lawrence
Yun, as of November 2007,
the year was expected to be the
fifth highest year on record for
existing home sales.
Also in November, Florida's
median sales price for an
existing single-family home
was $215,800. Just the year
before, that figure was
$239,800, reflecting a 10
percent decrease. In November
2002, the median sales price
was $141,500, which, at that
time, was a 52.5 percent
increase.
Home prices in Union
County are very reasonable in
comparison with the larger
surrounding cities. -For
example, s new three bedroom,
two bath, 2,079-square foot
home is priced at $168,500. A
completely remodeled three
bedroom, one-and-a-half bath
home price is priced at
$96,000.
There is also affordably
priced acreage available in
Union County such as two
acres just outside the city
limits for less than $28,000.
Though prices may be
moderately down, historically,
increases in property value has
vastly outweighed any.
decrease.
In my opinion, recent
decreases in sales prices reflect
more realistic expectations
from sellers, especially in
contrast with the prices in


2005. We may find ourselves
getting back to more realistic
prices for local homebuyers.
Yun said he expects home
prices to hold steady this year,
at the 2007 level.
There is an abundance of
positive growth that will
continue to directly affect the
communities of Lake Butler,
Starke and Keystone Heights.
This are,. is centrally located
between Jacksonville,
Gainesville and Lake City.
Many residents in our
communities work in these
cities. Approximately 300 new
jobs are expected to be
introduced in Lake City this
year through new industrial
facilities. Jacksonville, rated
the fourth largest technology
hub in Florida in 2005,
continues to offer a large
number of high paying tech
jobs.
Many students attending the
University of Florida and
Santa Fe Community College
are in consistent need for
housing and some are looking
to buy in outlying counties.
From the buyers
prospective, one should keep
in mind that buying now
shows to be a" good
opportunity to receive a
bargain. As a prospective
seller, one should keep in mind
that selling your home today at
a lower price than it may have
sold for in years past, is not
necessarily an unsound
financial decision. You may be
able to turn around and find
immediate equity in a new
home purchase at that same
lower price.
Most importantly, as
demonstrated historically,
prices may fluctuate, but over
a period of time, real estate
appreciation is almost
inevitable.
With current mortgage
interest rates, a 30-year fixed-
rate mortgage at about 6.5

percent is relatively low,
especially compared to the
going rate of 18 percent in
1980.
Also, the increasing use of
FHA and VA mortgages has
helped a large number of first-
time buyers receive financing.
Another topic worth taking
note of is that homeownership
is almost always a wise
investment in comparison to
renting.
In many situations, a buyer
can purchase a home with very
little down and receive a
monthly payment equal to or
closely comparable to the costs
of renting. Homeownership
provides tax relief, as most
Florida homeowners can
deduct expenses such as
mortgage interest and property
taxes from their annual income
tax return.
As a renter, one can usually
Expect their rental price to go
up from time to time. This is
directly related to appreciation
in real estate values and
associated costs.
Florida's real estate market
is currently offering a larger
selection of available homes
than it has in over a decade.
Florida has seen a consistent
increase in population and that
increase is expected to
continue.
More than 900 people move
to Florida each day, and it is
expected that the state will see
a population increase of
325,000 people this year.
In 2007, the state saw an
increase of 1.7 percent in new
jobs and it is projected that in
2008, Ohat number will be'
somewhere around 2.1 percent.
It is through this increase of
population and number of
available jobs combined with
the expected decrease of new
home construction that home
availability is likely to
decrease over the course of
2008.
This expected decrease in
inventory should positively
affect the real estate market, as
it should help in stabilizing
rices.
Will the proposed tax
amendment affect
local homeowners?
The proposed Amendment 1
'will' directly affect our local
real estate industry. If passed,
it will double the homestead

FCAT Chats-new way to Lake Butler Rotary Club news
all nranra tenria h f,

BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
All last week, Union County
High School was busy hosting
FCAT Chats for all students in
grades 9 and 10 as well as all
FCAT retake students.
School employees,
community members and
business partners are meeting
with students to review his or
her FCAT scores from last
year.
All high school parents were
informed by a mailed letter in
December about the program
and were provided with an
opportunity to attend training
with community volunteers on
interpreting FCAT scores and
appropriately discussing them
with their child.
The goal of FCAT Chats is
to encourage students to do
their best and to point out
specific areas they might focus
on to better prepare them for
the March FCAT testing.
After-school tutoring is
available to students who need
extra help. Students who have
difficulty with the reading
portion of the FCAT are
provided with an intensive
reading course during the
school day.
There were 45 volunteers
who attended training and gave
their time to students for
FCAT Chats.
Volunteers from the Union
County Schools District office
included Denise Anderson,


Brenda Croft, Pat
Cunningham, Debi Dukes,
Carlton Faulk, Mike Fletcher,
Rhonda Harrell, Ailene Johns,
Linda Johns, Bobbie Morgan,
Cathy Sams, Betsy Whitehead
and Scott Woodall.
All five school board
members, Marsan Carr, Sandra
Floyd, George Green, Alvin
Griffis and Allen Parrish, also
volunteered along with UCHS
staff members Darla Davis,
Dot Green, Michelle Green,
Kelly Holmes, Cindy Maddox,
Beth Moore, Alex Nelson,
Carolyn Parrish and Tana
Reynolds.
Local church pastors
included Larry Clyatt, Randy
Murray, Scott Fisher, Patrick
Maxwell, Paul O'Steen, Art
Peterson and youth minister
Brian Shepherd.
County officials assisting
with FCAT Chats were Tax
Collector Patsy Elixson,
Supervisor of Elections Debbie
Osborne, Clerk of Court
Regina Parrish, Property
Appraiser Steve Saunders and
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead.
Volunteer business partners
in the' community included
Billy Woodington, Pam
Woodington, Bill McGill,
Lonita McGill, Jennie Reed
and NEFEC consultant Bill
Baker.

needed with 50 hours of
volunteered time. They hope to
make a meaningful
contribution to the University
of Florida IFAS extension
education program in Union
County.
What kind of things will
they be doing? Lawn and plant
problem calls coming the
extension office will now be
referred to the master


gardeners for their action.
Kaemmer and Cameron have
been given the best reference
materials and will research
solutions for members of the
community. Where they
cannot provide a solution, they
will pass it on to extension
director Jacque Breman.
The master gardeners will
also assist with 4-H activities.
They hope to begin conducting
new horticulture educational
programs this spring.
Kaemmer retired after
teaching for 34 years. She
relocated to Lake Butler from
Jacksonville three years ago.
Kaemmer has always enjoyed
gardening, from helping her
parents and grandparents with
large vegetable gardens to
landscaping a new retirement
home. She is particularly
looking forward to working
with children once again and


sharing the rewards of growing
flowers and harvesting ripe
tomatoes.
Recently moving back to the
country to be closer to nature,
Cameron was born in a small
town and worked in Orlando
for Lockheed Martin
Aerospace as a technical
editor. He has chickens, a
garden and fruit trees and
hopes to learn a lot more about
them through working on
related projects and problem
solving techniques.
Both master gardeners hope
that since they are now
available, residents in Union
County will call the extension
office for help with their lawn
and plant issues.
The extension office is
looking forward to Union
County residents using
Kaemmer and Cameron as
valuable resources.
For your lawn and plant care'
needs, call the master
gardeners at (386) 496-2321.


Master gardeners Pete Cameron and Jackie Kaemmer are now available at the
extension office for residents of Union County.


Water use restrictions for Union,
Bradford take effect in April


The Suwannee River Water
Management District
governing board recently
issued the agency's first-ever"
Phase II Water Shortage Order
,which includes mandatory
water-use restrictions that will
become effective district wide
in both Bradford and Union
counties on April 7.
The order includes
restrictions, and some
exemptions, for all water-use
categories, including
residential, commercial,
industrial and agricultural.
Between now and April 7,
SRWMD staff will meet with
city and county officials to
coordinate implementation and
enforcement guidelines. They
also will meet with
commercial and industrial
interests to explain the order
and to solicit input, as they did
with agricultural producers in
late December.
The unprecedented action
was taken in response to
ext emey low groundwater
ledve s xper'enceae throughout'
thou4 county region during
the current drought, coupled
with predictions that the
drought will intensify over the
next several months.
"Even before the mandatory



"The only rock I know that
stays steady, the only institution
I know that works, is the
family."
Lee Iacocca


restrictions go into effect, we
urge all citizens to continue to
voluntarily conserve water,"
said David Still, SRWMD's
deputy executive director.
The district is suffering its
eighth-driest 24-month period
since 1932, with a rainfall
deficit of 28.7 inches.
Forty-nine wells set new
December lows and 17 wells
set new historic lows. Twenty-
three emergency permits for
dry wells were issued in
December, for a total of 157
issued between April 1 and
Dec. 31, 2007.
Although recent heavy rains
in Georgia have led to slight
increases in some local river
levels, the Suwannee at
Branford is still below the 10th
percentile, and the Santa Fe
River near Fort White is about
an inch below its former
historic low. .(The unofficial
level on Jan. 8 was 20.93 feet
above mean sea level; the
historic low was 21.02 feet,
recorded in November 2002.) l'
Neither the Lake Butler city.
Council or the board of county
commissioners have been
contacted by SRWMD in
regards to water restrictions
that will effect Union County.

Host a foreign
exchange student
during the next
school year
PAX Exchange Student
Programs would like to invite
you to meet a very special
person in 2008. Families in
Union and Bradford counties
are invited to offer their
hospitality to a high school age
exchange student for the
upcoming school year starting
in late August.
i( The students hail from 40
different countries and are
eager to know who they will
be living with, and what part
of the U.S. will be their host
community.
Each student is between 15
and 18 years of age, has been
well screened for maturity and
adaptability, and has full
medical and spending money.
The host family provides
room, board and a measure- of
guidance for the student during
his or her stay in the U.S.
Empty nesters, couples or
singles are eligible to offer
their hospitality. According to
o~Dawn Brown, local
community coordinator,
f,:families that volunteer early
have the opportunity to begin
communication with their
student before arrival. This
early bonding makes it easier
for everyone to handle cultural
obstacles once the student
arrives.
"Most of the students feel
like they know their .host
families even before they
arrive, and are immediately
ready to become a
participating member of their
new host homes-pitching in
on everything from household
chores to family discussions,"
says Brown.
PAX is a non-profit
organization, monitored by the
U.S. government. For more
information, call Dawn Brown
at (386) 496-9783.


State Rails-to-Trails project

edging closer to Lake Butler


Construction of the final two
sections of the Rails-to-Trails
project along S.R, 100 in Clay
County is scheduled to begin
in early February, announced
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT).
The two new sections will
add 4.7 miles to the existing
trail in Keystone Heights.
Vallencourt Construction
Company of Middleburg will
begin work on the section that
extends from the Bradford
County line to the beginning of
the existing trail at Northwest
Berea Avenue.
The next section extends the
existing trail east to the
Putnam County line. The trail
is being built in sections to
minimize impacts to residents
and side streets.
The 12-foot paved trail will
have a two-foot unpaved
shoulder on both sides and will
be located on the abandoned
Norfolk-Southern Railroad.
Pedestrians and bicyclists will
access the trail,, from ,the

copy of his Jan. 3 follow-up
letter which Thomas said she
never received in the mail.
"Somehow, it got delivered
to one of my tenants who took
it with them to work and faxed
it to me," she said.
However, Berchtold's
recollection of events differs
from that of Thomas.
"I spoke to Doris on Nov.
28, on *my cell phone,"
Berchtold said. "She indicated
she would be recommending to
her board that they make the

conditions such as weather, the
trail will be completed in tte
summer of 2008.
The completed trail in Clay,
County is part of the Palatka-
Lake Butler State Trail, which
will eventually extend 45 miles
from the vicinity of S.R. 238 in
Lake Butler to the west of U.S.
17 in Palatka.
Although FDOT is
constructing the trail, it is up to
local county government to
construct the trail heads or-
parking areas. Construction of
the Union Depot pavilion in
Lake Butler is currently in
progress by Richard Tillis
Construction.
The Rails-to-Trails project is
part of the state's Greenways
and Trails program, which is
an effort to transform old or
abandoned railway lines into
functional paths or greenways
for bicyclists and pedestrians.

He said phone calls were not
returned so he wrote the Jan. 3
follow-up letter, this time also
sending a copy of the letter to
each of the housing authority's
board members.
Thomas said she.made two
calls to city hall to be put on
the agenda for the next
meeting, but was unable to
reach Berchtold, and decided
to show up at the meeting and
address the board during the
public forum.
Thomas arrived at the
meeting with a check for the
back taxes, but wanted the
board to hear what she had to
say.
"I was not asking the city to
do me a favor. "The last letter 1
received makes it appear as if I
am trying to get out of paying
the bill and that's not what I
am doing." She said she never
would have asked for bill
forgiveness and wanted it
known that she only did so
under the advice of her-auditor.

County, not just for their
academic accomplishments,
but also for the way they
represent the district in every
aspect of their education.
"Union County schools have
exemplary students and this
graduation rate verifies it," ie
said.

This year's graduation rate
in Florida is the highest since
employing new, more accurate
data collection methods during
the 1998-99 school year.
During that time, the Florida
graduation rate was 60.2


percent, 12.2 percent lower
than the 2006-07 school year.
Graduation rates for African-
American and Hispanic
students showed the largest
growth this year, increasing
1.8 and 2.3 percent,
respectively.
"Florida has made
exceptional progress in helping
students realize the value and
necessity of a high school
education," Crist said.
"This achievement would
not be possible without the
tireless efforts of Florida's
teachers and school
administrators who selflessly
devote themselves to ensuring
a brighter future for their
students."


Brianne Clyatt was a third-place finisher against Bradford with a


135-pound total.

Lake Butler Farm Center getting nutty


BY TERESA STONE-IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Greg Williams of the Lake
Butler Farm Center on S.R.
121 said as far as pecans go,
they are having their best
season in 10 years. People are
bringing their pecans in to be
cracked from not only Union
County, but Bradford, Baker
and Alachua counties as well.
Some are coming in from
Jacksonville.
The farm center charges 30
cents per pound to crack the
nuts for its customers and in
the past three months,
Williams said their machine
has cracked more than 22,000
pounds of pecans.
Jacque Breman of the
.extension office accredits the
large pecan crop to Mother
Nature, who brought two
active hurricane seasons of
pruning old limbs from the
pecan trees, allowing for new
growth.
"The summer wasn't overly
wet and that also helped many
of the pecan trees," Breman
said.
The buds on pecan trees are
set each fall for the following
spring. If the soil is not
properly fertilized in February,
the immature nuts will fall to
the ground.
"This can happen again in
June if there is a heavy crop
and pecans are not properly
fertilized again in early June,"
Breman said.
For a $10 charge, the
extension office can take tissue
samples from a pecan tree and
find out the individual
nutrients needed for a
particular tree. A special blend
can be created at the farm
center for February and June
fertilization. Angus Rimes of
the farm center said that
beginning in February, his
store will be selling special 50-
pound bags of fertilizer
specifically for pecan trees.
For those with aching backs
from picking up pecans off the
ground, the farm center offers
pecan harvesting machines that
rent. for $25 to $40 a day, The
site of the machine needed
depends upon how many trees
have dropped nuts for
collection.
Williams said the Bag-A-
Nut machine is real popular
right now. Simply roll the
machine over the nuts on the
ground and watch them fall
into the basket with ease. Pull
the rope and the hopper flips
up to dump the nuts into your
collection area.
Caring for your
pecan trees
Mature pecan trees are not
routinely pruned, but can .be
pruned to facilitate continued
tree productivity as adjacent
trees become crowded _in an
orchard.
During the dormant season,
prune all limbs; closer than 5
feet from the soil surface. The
cut should not be flush but
rather a sufficient distance
from the branch to create a
stub that will eventually be
covered with bark tissue,
otherwise the location of the
pruned-off limb will sustain
wood rot and eventually leave
a hole in the trunk.
The crotch angle is the angle
the lateral branch makes with
the central leader. Crotch
angles- between 70 and 90
degrees are preferred, and
narrow, or Y angles, are to be
avoided because they are prone
to breakage. For narrow or Y
angles, remove one of the
shoots early in development,
preferably during the first year
that they form.
There is usually a reduction
in yield associated with
pruning, such as what took
place after the hurricanes.
Yield can be essentially zero
for three years of growth after
scaffold limbs are pruned to
stubs. Severe pruning can
promote a return of the tree to
a non-reproductive state. A
reduction in yield with pruning
will also occur in trees
destined for eventual tree
removal.

Fertilization
Collect soil samples from
different areas of the field and
take your samples to the
county extension office, where


they will be forwarded to the
University of Florida Soil
Testing Laboratory for
analysis. A special blend
designed for your fertilization
needs can be mixed at the farm
center.
When applying fertilizer, do
not apply it in a clump around
the base of the tree, but instead
-


This pecan cracking machine rests outside the Lake Butler Farm Center after a
hard ddy's work. The average weight of a bucket like the one pictured is
between 18-20 pounds. The farm center has cracked more than 22,000 of pecans
in the past three months.
limb growth in insufficient.
Deficiency or toxicity can be
diagnosed by a discoloration of
the leaves or a malformation of
the leaves.
For bearing trees, two to
four pounds of fertilizer should
be applied per inch of trunk
diameter in February and again
in June. Large trees (30 inches
or more in diameter) may
require 60 to 120 pounds of

deficiency can reduce the
growth rate of young trees and
can reduce the yield of bearing
trees.
Potassium deficiency
symptoms seldom occur in
pecan trees, however,
magnesium deficiency has
been observed especially if not
using a balanced fertilizer
containing magnesium is used.
Magnesium deficiency is
characterized by a marginal
yellowing of leaves.
Many pecan orchards
require supplemental
applications of zinc oxide or
zinc sulfate in the fertilizer.
Zinc deficiency is
characterized by a bronzing
and a crinkling of the leaves
and a reduction in leaf size.
S In severe cases there can bea
twig dieback. A few ounces of
zinc sulfate applied to the soil
will correct a zinc deficiency
for young trees while several
pounds may be required for
older trees. In many cases, zinc
deficiency can be avoided by
regular application of a
balanced fertilizer such as a
pecan special that contains
zinc.
Tree production and
alternate bearing
Pecan yield and quality are
influenced by tree age, cultivar
and a management program.
Trees planted at a high or
moderate density approach
maximum yield per acre, but
quickly become overcrowded,
resulting in a reduction in
yield.
Alternate bearing is a
phenomenon where trees bear
heavy and light crops in
alternate years. In a high-yield
year, water, nutrients and sugar
production by photosynthesis
are sufficient to mature a large
quantity of nuts.
Alternate bearing is
accentuated by a number of
factors that can deplete the
tree's energy reserves. This can
include inadequate insect or
disease control, insufficient
fertilization, lack ofwater and
tree overcrowding.
Diagnosing the actual cause
of alternate bearing can be
difficult. Premature defoliation
can. enhance the depletion of
carbohydrate reserves and can

be a predictor of low yield the
following year.
Neglected or abandoned
pecan orchards
A substantial portion of the
pecan acreage in Florida
consists of neglected or
abandoned trees. Many trees
that appear in homeowner
settings can also fit into this
category.
After a few years of neglect,
tall weeds will be prevalent in
the orchard. Orchards that
have been abandoned for five
or more years will contain
saplings growing within and
between rows. Broken pecan
limbs will also be prevalent.
After about 15 years, an
abandoned pecan orchard can
cause scattered pecan trees to
compete for sunlight in the
canopy.
Mistletoe, a parasite of
pecan trees, diverts nutrients
from the tree. The only method
to remove mistletoe is to cut it
out below the point of
attachment since the root
system of mistletoe deeply
penetrates the wood of pecan
trees.
Spanish moss appears as a
gray moss that hangs on tree
limbs, Spanish moss is not
technically a parasite, though it
is a symptom of low tree vigor.
It obtains carbon for
photosynthesis and nutrients
for other metabolic processes
from the air or from the
substrate surface. The biggest
problem of Spanish moss is
tree shading.
If you wish to control
Spanish moss, apply 10
pounds of copper sulfate per
100 gallons of water during the
dormant season.
Lichens are symbiotic
combinations of algae and
fungi that adhere to bark and
even rocks. When lichen is
prevalent on trees, it is a
symptom of low tree vigor, but
no control of lichen is
recommended because it does
not harm the trees.
A major disadvantage of
pecan culture is the length of
time before pecans come into
significant production (five to
10 years). Therefore the time it
takes to receive a return on an
investment can be substantial.

Three first-half goals and a
solid defensive performance
helped propel the Keystone
Heights girls' soccer team to a
4-1 win over Pierson Taylor
for the District 5-3A
championship on Jan. 18 in
Keystone.
It was the second district
championship for the Indians
(12-7-2) in the past three
seasons. Keystone will now
host the Villages (5-7-4) in a
regional quarterfinal match
tonight, Jan. 24, at 7 p.m.
Both teams had several
chances to score in the first 15
minutes of the match, but it
was not until the 17th minute
that Keystone's Julie Campbell

Bradford High School's
Chuckie Covington was named
the Offensive MVP for the
East team in the inaugural
Baker Sports/Columbia Youth
Association East-West Senior
All-Star Football Game on Jan.
21 in Lake City, but
unfortunately, not many people
knew about it.
Each team had a player
named as an Offensive MVP
and a Defensive MVP. When it
came time to announce the
East Offensive MVP, the
public address announcer
made a mistake and announced
it was Lucious Lee of Baker
County. One. of the game's,
organizers,, who was on the
field hading out the trophies,
-said the award was supposed
to go to Covington. However,
he did not feel it was right to
not give the trophy to Lee after
his name was announced, but
Covington was told he would
eventually receive a trophy as
well.
"It's all right," Covington
said. "I'm not worried' about
it."
Bradford head coach Steve
Hoard, who served as an
assistant on the East team staff,
said he thought game
organizers actually meant to
actually Covington as
Defensive MVP instead of
Offensive MVP. Lee probably
did deserve the Offensive
MVP award after rushing for
more than 70 yards, Hoard
said, whereas Covington came
up with several big plays and
tackles on defense.

As reported in the Telegraph
on Jan. 10, nine-year old
Charlie Anderson, formerly of
Starke, was scheduled to have
heart surgery in Miami on Jan.
15-his seventh in his young

In a procedure never before

doctors at Miami Children's
Hospital replaced a tricuspid
valve (a valve of three
segments opening from the
right auricle into the right
ventricle of the heart) in a non-
invasive procedure using a
catheter inserted into a small
opening in Charlie's neck.
The procedure was
pronounced a total success,
and Charlie was up and around
and joking the next day.
"Of course we are
overjoyed," said Charlie's
mother, Tina Anderson.
"Charlie and his doctors have
made history."
Anderson said she wanted to

Thanks to
everyone
involved
Dear Editor:
Our boy is home! Thank-
God and thank everyone who
was involved in the rescue of
our son, who was involved in a
horrific crash in the early
morning hours of Jan. 13.
Had it not been for the
heroic efforts of the men and
women of Statidns 1, 4, 5 and
Medic 5, we know that this
would not have been possible.
Thank you to the gentlemen
who were first on the scene
and who stayedwiith him until
rescue arrived. Thank you to
the young lady who called 911.
Thank you to the Florida
Highway Patrol and the local
law enforcement personnel,
especially Officer Robert
Lyons, Sergeant Mike
McKenzie and Deputy Aaron
Black.
We watched for what
seemed like hours (94 minutes)
as they tried to free him from
the wreckage. There were
definitely-many-angels on his
side that morning.


Thank you to the countless
numbers of family and friends
who were on the scene, came
to visit at the hospital, called to
check on him or who prayed
for him.
Thank you to the medical
staff at Shands UF. They said
it was a miracle. We know it
was. He's always been our
miracle boy.
We only wish we could
replace the equipment the fire
department lost in trying to
rescue him. Just know you will
all be forever in our hearts and
part of our family.
Bradford County has some


of the finest law enforcement
officers and rescue personnel
anywhere. Again, thank you
from the bottom of our hearts.
Family of William R.
"Wilbur" Gatlin III

The will to win, the
desire to succeed, the
urge to reach your full
potential... these are
the keys that will
unlock the door to
personal excellence.

Reporting news and writing
Editorials have differing objectives,
with editorials providing the writer
*an opportunity to express-personal-
-optn`i'oi- 'as- opposed to reporting
I.events as nearly as possible without
revealing a prejudice for the subject.
After considerable study, I will not
support the proposed constitutional
amendment for the following
reasons:
1. The appraisal on my home is
reasonable, representing 80-85 percent
of its actual cash value-the goal of
the property appraiser's office.
-'2. 7County commissioners would
Raise the millage rate to the top legal
limit (10 mills) immediately if the
amendment passed; they may do so
anyway.
3. I accept the report "Analysis of
County Spending Patterns" prepared
by Fishkind and Associates as being
factual and correct. It states, "Since
1999, rapidly escalating property
values caused Florida's property taxes
:to increase by $11.4 billion. (The
target period was 1999-2005). County
revenues during the period increase
much more than the consumer index,
but comparing the two figures provides
an erroneous answer. Consumers
,and county governments do not buy
products for.the same constituencies.
,,Counties spend monies for salaries
and accompanying perquisites, which
have no counterparts for individuals,
Snor does expenditures for incarceration
-of inmates,, two-large cost centers.
:The cost of road materials for new
construction or repairs, which has
a petroleum base, has gone out of
sight, as well as gasoline for law-
enforcement vehicles."
4.; Perhaps the m4n.question each
'of us should carefully consider is
which one or more-county-funded-
programs you would eliminate or
reduce if you had the authority to.do
s., ThaLdecision-i-diffculrtbecause
tihe program you do not use or would
eliminate may be very important to
your neighbor. There aremany county-
uinded programs I do not participate
in;,but this does iot mean they should
now be curtailed.
5.5. U.S. 301 has been resurfaced
three times since I moved here 30
Years ago, and already the surface of
the pavement is pushed up and rutted
.,at traffic lights -as result of heavily
Sladen semi-trucks applying brakes in
..hot summer weather, and the situation
:%will continue, to deteriorate as more
big trucks are added to fleets. The
::number of long-distance trucks on
the highways today is limited by
the number of drivers available, and
as the number of available drivers
increases, so will the vehicles.
The latest figures available from the
Florida Highway Patrol Department
"show more than 16 million vehicles
registered in the state and a very


similar number or driver's licenses
issued. The population, while slowed,
continues to grow, putting more
pressure on overloadedhighways and
interstates. If ad valorem taxes are
reduced, or fail to provide enough
funds, look for additional toll roads.
Some larger cities are exploring the
feasibility of a vehicle tax for driving
into the downtown area, serving two
purposes-to curtail traffic gridlock in
downtown areas and increase revenue.
The proposed rate ($8-$10 per vehicle
per day) will get one's attention very
quickly.
6. The county's new library and
the city's new fire station were made
possible by tax money, and represent
wise and judicious use of public funds.
(The city sold a property to help fund
the fire station.) The new drains and
renovation of Pratt Street are far from
being luxuries.The drains will provide
relief from the flooding of 301 in
heavy rainstorms and restoration of
the street will prove advantageous to
area residents as well as serving Santa
Fe Community College students and
personnel. The city's new growth,
especially on North Temple Street is
directly related to the city and county
investing in infrastructure for today's
residents and those that will follow in
years to come.
7. Bradford County has paved miles
of formerly graded roads, reducing
maintenance costs and providing
paved surfaces for individuals and'
families living outside towns and
communities. Many of us remember
the old grades with deep sand in
dry weather and deeper mud in wet
weather. Getting sand and grit into the
engine and bearings quickly damaged
vehicles driven on- country roads,,
shortening the life expectancy of the
running gear. Meeting: 6 "passing.
another vehicle on deeply rutted roads
-was an experience, and carrying a tow
rope was routine as being stuck was a
constant possibility. Tax funds made
paved roads possible.
8. Homeowners already have the
3 percent cap on tax increases. New
benefits in the proposed amendment
may save ine some $200-$25q,.per
year, and I can find other uses for the
money, but until I can recommend and
point to programs for commissioners
to curtail or eliminate, I will vote to
continue the status quo.
9. One more thing: The proposed
reduction for homeowners will be
transferred to business owners and
renters. Loading more governmental
cost on small business owners is like
killing the goose that lays the golden
egg. While bigbusiness is impressive
with the number of employees on
the payroll, actually small business
employs more people in the nation.

LOCAL DEALER SHOCKS COMMUNITY


"Cars to Sell for *29* Down & 99**/month!"


Starke, FL Mike Hull, General
Manager and Kevin Campbell,
Sales Manager of Beck Chrysler
Dodge Jeep of Starke announced
plans today for a great new way to
buy cars that's simple and
inexpensive. This unique sales
event, also known as the
"Automotive Opportunity Sale,"
has been sweeping the U.S.
C(stonmper whn .cnm


every vehicle will be clearly marked
and available for the low down
payment of $29*. Every effort will
be made to obtain credit approval for
those who may have had challenges
in the past.
During the event, selection
couldn't be better. Many of the
vehicles offered are late model
vehicles with low mileage and the


only $99/month.** For those auto
shoppers looking to trade" their
current vehicle, all trades are
welcome, paid for or not. You
won't want to miss this' unique
opportunity to obtain a new or pre-
owned car, truck, van or sport
utility with an, unbelievably low
down payment of just twenty-rine*
dollars!
In order to assist


choice, all for just a Saturday
low initial down
payment of only $29* based on
lender approval and
creditworthiness.
The event will be held for just
four days, this Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday & Saturday,
regardless of weather.
Hull offers a simple explanation
for this unprecedented sale. "As
one of the largest dealerships in the
area, we're overstocked with high
quality vehicles from lease turn-ins,
program car trade-ins, new vehicle
duplications and more." He adds, "I
can't remember the last time so
many rare opportunities were
available to us at one time so we
decided to let our customers take
advantage of these incredible
values rather than sell them to
wholesalers or strangers at the

James Prince
"Deacon" James Walter
Prince, 100, who served the
Starke community for so long,
died Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2008,
following an extended illness.
Born on April 8, 1907, in
Taylor Town, Ga., to the late
Zack and Mattie Prince, Prince
celebrated his 100th birthday
the past year.
Prince was educated in
Georgia, but had lived in
Starke for more than 60 years.
He spent his time lending
support to his community,
especially to its younger
members.
Prince was married to the
late Sarah Smith Prince for 68
years.
He. is survived by:
daughters, Martha Prince
Robinson of Starke and Clara
Bly of Moultry, Ga.; and an
adopted son, John Thomas
Carsxwell of Donaldsonville,
Ga.
The Prince household was
often full of children. Besides
raising his own children, he
raised the children of
numerous relatives as well as
those who "just needed
raising," he said during a 1997
Bradford County Telegraph
interview.
In fact, Prince took in many
indigent children, with Mary
McLeod, Starke's first black
female city commissioner,
being one of those.
He was preceded in death by
his parents, his wife, his twin
bother Willie Prince, and his
adopted daughter Ruby E. Lee.
Helping children attend
church and Sunday school was
also important to Prince. He
would transport children in his
own vehicle.
The city got its first free will
Baptist church through the
efforts of Prince and others.
The Greater Bethlehem Free
Will Baptist Churcih was
organized in 1947 by Prince
and two other men. The
congregation first met in
people's homes, then in a tent
on the corner of Ash and


I feel that the greatest
reward for doing is the
opportunity to do more. .
Dr. Jonas Salk 1914-


Chestnut streets before a
permanent building was
constructed. Prince served as a
deacon in the church.
Prince helped meet the
spiritual needs of the African-
American community and also
helped its members be able to
buy affordable housing during
his early years in Starke. He
went door to door signing
people up for a government-
subsidized housing program.
He devised a plan in which
people could pay the $100
down payment on $14,000-
$16,000 block homes in small
increments-some ,people
needed as long as three years
to pay off theodebt, paying $1-
$2 a week. Payments on the
30-year mortgages were
adjusted based on people's
incomes.
In the seven years Prince
was involved in that program,
he helped approximately 25
families purchase their own
homes.
Prince was an employee of
Hercules, a pine tree resin
distilling company, when he
moved from Georgia. He
worked for the company for 27
years. He also spent 15 years
working in the delivery and
production departments of the
Bradford County Telegraph.
He was also a member of a
number of civic service:
organizations. and was a
member of Morning Star
Lodge 26 WMG.
Prince lived a long life and,
according to the 1997
Telegraph interview, a happy
one. He credited that to
spiritual faith and reliance on
the Bible for guidance and
inspiration.
"Ask the Lord for what you
want, then keep working for
it," Prince was quoted as
saying in 1997. "Put all you
have into it and you will get
what you want. You do your
part, and the Lord will do his."
Visitation and services for
Prince are set for Saturday,
Jan. 26. Visitation will be at
Archie Tanner Funeral Home.

CRASH COURSE!


When you're buying a
home, who do you think is
the most important person in
the transaction? YOU, of
course! That doesn't mean
you won't need experienced
professionals for guidance
and assistance, but quite
frankly, if YOU choose not
to buy, the entire process
comes to a halt.
While home ownership
is called the American
Dream, it's a shame that
nobody teaches it in school.
Most folks face the biggest
purchase of their life with-
out-any experience. That's
why it's critical for someone
to help you understand
everything that happens dur-
ing the process, whether it's
your accountant, your
banker, or your trusted real
estate columnist!
Demand explanations to


questions like how much
home can you afford? 'How
do you get the best loan?
Do you choose a new home
or a resale? Which proper-
ties will increase in value?
Where do you begin?
Since YOU are in
charge, take command of
the situation, and surround
yourself with a team of
experts in every aspect of
the transaction, all of whom
can be coordinated by a
local real estate agent.
Plan from the very
beginning to educate your-
self and approach your pur-
chase with confidence and
intelligence. Then you'll be
sure to find the home of
your dreams and the peace
of mind that comes with
knowing that you've made
the right decisions all along.
Flex those buying muscles!

STAR
Cont. from page 1B
Covington did rush for more
than 30 yards on five carries,
hut his biggest play may have
come when he stopped a West
scoring drive by intercepting a
pass inside his own 5-yard
line. He also broke up several
other pass attempts as well as
deliver many bone-jarring
tackles.
"If there was an overall
MVP from both teams, it was
him," Hoard said.
The game did not feature a
lot of highlights from either
offense. In fact, it was the
West defense that generated
the only score of the game,
though that play generated
some controversy on the East
sideline. What appeared to be
an incomplete swing pass to
Union County's Shandale Lee
was ruled a lateral by officials.
Ocala Trinity Catholic's
Dominic Young scooped the
ball up and returned it
approximately 50 yards for a
score with 4:10 to play in the
third quarter.
The West team's offense did
have. chances to score,
however. The team marched to
the East 15 despite several
tackles by Covington and
Union's Aaron Dukes.
Covington stopped the drive
with his interception, which
occurred on a third-and-11
play.
A fumble recovery gave the
West team the ball at the East
5-yard line, but the East
defense did not give up a
score, with Covington -
breaking up a pass on fourth
down.
Fumbling was a problem for
both teams, especially the East,
which laid the ball on the
ground seven times.
When the East did hang.onto
the ball, it got some good
carries from Covington,
Baker's Lucious Lee and
Bradford's Jernard Beard.
Beard had six carries for
approximately 30 yards.
The East offense was set up
with good field position to
start the second half thanks to
Bradford's Justin Henderson
and Union's Michael
Chandler. Henderson's hit of
the West quarterback caused a
fumble, which Chandler fell on
at the West 38-yard line. The
East offense, however, failed
to pick up a first down.
A promising, drive for the,
East began at its own 28 late in
the third quarter. Beard, with
Union fullback Justin Hanson
leading the way, ripped off a
9-yard gain, which was
followed by a long run by
Covington. Hanson provided
the- blocking on Covington's
run, too, but a holding penalty
nullified the play.
Covington later added runs
of 2 and 9 yards, but his 9-yard
run only set up a second-and-
16 after the East had been
penalized for a chop block.
Baker's Lee followed with an
8-yard gain, but an incomplete
pass and a quarterback sack

make a tackle of a West All-Star player.


stopped the drive.
Beard and Union's Lee were
the targets of three passes on
the East team's last drive of
the game, but all three fell
incomplete.
Bradford's Marcus Rhines
proved to be a disruptive force
on defense, finding his way
into the West backfield on
several occasions. He arrived
just a tad second too late to get
in on a quarterback sack in the
second quarter, but he did
assist on a tackle for a loss of 4
yards later in the game.
Union's Jordan Clyatt and
Kendyl Willis and Bradford's
Jared Smith also played in the
game.
Covington said it was

to playing with each other to
come together, but that
changed as the week of
practices leading up to the
game progressed.
"It' was a little tough,"
Covington said, "but once we
got into the second day of
practice, everything was
good."
Hoard said Covington was
without a doubt the star of
those practices. As he showed
in the game, he can have an
impact on either side of the

scored by McGhghy. That was
followed by goals from
Williams, McGhghy and
Campbell. Assisting on those
goals were Ashley Osteen,
Noel Crane and Katie
McCollum.
Keystone concluded the
scoring in the second half with
goals from Beasley and
Williams. Goodwin was
credited with an assist on
Beasley's goal.
That win earned the Indians
their eighth regional playoff
berth in the 10-year history of
the program. The only time
Keystone has missed out on
the playoffs other than its
inaugural year was in 2003.
What the program has
lacked to this point is
consistency when it comes to
advancing in the postseason.
The Indians have won only
one regional playoff game in
their history. That came in
2001 when they defeated
Crescent City 7-0. (Keystone
would go on to lose 5-0 to
Episcopal in the semifinals.)
If the Indians defeat the
Villages tonight, they will host
either Ocala Trinity Catholic
or Pierson Taylor in a regional
semifinal match on Tuesday,
Jan. 29, at 7 p:m.

customer.
"That was my job, to see
that they were satisfied and felt
comfortable," Mosley said.
Mosley's service to the
community went beyond his
business, however. He has
been a supporter of 4-H and
Future Farmers of America
and served two terms (1980-
88) as a Bradford County
commissioner.
Mosley, who was an FFA
member when he was in
school, believes it is important
to support youth programs.
Kids are the future of this
country, he said. Plus, by
supporting local youth
programs, such as the annual
Bradford County 4-H auction,
he ensures that his money
stays local.
"That money down there is
actually spent on the kids,"
Mosley said. "It's given
locally and it stays local. It
goes to a scholarship fund or to
something that helps a local
kid. That's the good thing.
You can actually see your
money working."
As for deciding to run for a
county commission seat,
Mosley admitted it started out
as a joke. People approached
him about doing so and he
agreed, saying that it was a bit
of an ego boost to have people
think well enough of you to
suggest such a thing. When he
really stopped and gave the
matter some thought, though,
he wasn't sure that's what he
really wanted to do.
"At that point, it was too late
to back out," Mosley said, "but
it worked out."
Mosley is proud of his time
on the commission, though he
said it was a difficult time to
be a commissioner. The county


needed to come up with
funding to implement state-
mandated programs as well as
to cover the costs of road
construction and the opening
of a new landfill.
"It just seems like during my
two terms there was always an
issue concerning money so that
we had to implement new
taxes," Mosley said. "I'm
opposed to new taxes, but
reality sets in. If you're going
to provide services, you've got
to have money to provide
them."
It was simply a time of
change in Bradford County,
Mosley said. For example, the
county was experiencing
growth, which meant that the
road situation had to be
addressed. Mosley said he
believes the county had 350
miles of dirt roads at the time.
"People were wanting to
build and grow, but they didn't
want to drive a mile or two
miles down a muddy, dirt road
and get stuck," he said. "For
the county to grow, we had to
pave some of those roads. The
cost of maintaining those roads
was astronomical.
"Growth was finally starting
to move into Bradford County.
We had to change with the
times."
The continuous controversy
surrounding the
implementation of new taxes
was one reason why Mosley
did not seek another term as
commissioner. The main
reason, however, was that his
role as a commissioner was
interfering with his business.
He was having to attend too
many meetings.


"It got to the point where I
was spending more time there
than I was here," Mosley said.
"My business was starting to
suffer."

Walking away from
the business -
Mosley Tire Co. continued
to operate for approximately
20 years after Mosley's'days
as a commissioner ended. It
was his hope to work another
four or five years, but his
health got him to thinking
about closing the business.
The main source of his
health problems was his right
leg. He was shot three times in
the leg when he was in
Vietnam. That incident caused
Mosley to fall backward and
set off a booby trap, which
lodged shrapnel from a
grenade throughout his body.
"I was in the hospital for
about 20 months," Mosley
said.
Mosley continued to have
problems with his leg, which
would become infected.
Doctors wanted to amputate
the leg 25 years ago, but
Mosley refused to let them.
He underwent several knee
replacement surgeries, but an
infection that developed last
year became so severe that he
had no choice but to have the
leg amputated, Mosley said.
"I feel better," he said. "My
health, all around, is a lot
better. My mobility is just
limited."
His health may be better, but
that wasn't the only factor in
deciding to close his business.
Mosley cited the fact that the
automobile industry is
becoming more specialized.
"In order for me to stay here,
I'm going to have to retool and
reeducate for the new, modern,
computerized car," he said.
"I'm too old for that. I don't


want -togo into- $100,000-
-wotih of debt for equipment
and to go to school.
"My type of cars I was
working on are getting fewer
and fewer."
Though such independent
businesses may be viewed as
part of a dying breed, Mosley
insists he could still make a
living as an independently
owned business. He also
stressed that the opening of the
Wal-Mart Super Center had
nothing to do with his
decision.
"Wal-Mart did not put me
out of business," Mosley said.
"I put myself out of business.
If I was 20 years younger, I
wouldn't have even considered
it because Wal-Mart has drawn
more out here than ever was
coming before. They've been
an asset to me."
While Mosley still sorts out
what to do with his life now
that he's not running that
business, he can still enjoy the
fact that he still lives in a place
that he's never wanted to
leave, surrounded by friends
and family. Mosley and his
wife, Linda, who is deceased,
raised one daughter, who still
lives in Bradford County.
DaWn Miscally works at the
Bradford County Department
of Health.
Not only does Mosley have
his daughter close by, but his
two granddaughters- Casey
Griffis and Megan Miscally-
as well. Casey is a Santa Fe
Community College student
who worked with Mosley at
his business, while Megan is a
senior at BHS.
"I couldn't imagine them

something,"'Mosley said. 'I've-_
been fortunate. I can see them
in five minutes if I want to. I
couldn't imagine just seeing on
Christmas or Thanksgiving.
It's been great."
What has also been great is
interacting with the people
who walked through the doors
of Mosley Tire Co. the past
30-plus years.
"I enjoyed it, seeing all those
people," Mosley said. "During
a run of a minth, I saw a lot of
people in and out of those
dodrs. I'm going to miss that."
