Times Staff Writer


Back in March of this year,
the Union County Sheriff's
Office received numerous calls
of concern following a sexual
predator being released from
prison and taking up residence
in Union County. There was a
sigh of relief from many when
he moved from the county 30
days later.
In May, another newly
released sexual predator also
registered with a Union County
address. Although he, too,
decided to relocate to another
county, the sheriff's office again
received a number of calls from
concerned citizens. Because the

Rimes withdraws, Jimmy Cason to resign


Award and recognition
from state draws Rimes
from county election
At a time when .the state is
facing many budget cuts, Gov.
Charlie Crist's office noticed
one of the smallest cities in
the smallest county in Florida
is generating record grant
revenues.
Under the leadership of
Worthington Springs acting
City Commission President
John Rimes III, the city has
been able to receive a record
$1.6 million in grants from the
state and local programs.
Union County is designated a
RACEC (Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern) county.
Through the volunteer efforts
of Rimes, everything from
barbecue grills and pavilions to
road infrastructure grants have
been obtained for the city of
Worthington Springs.
Three weeks ago, Rimes
received the Volunteer of the
Year Award from Enterprise
Florida, an organization that
is directed by the governor's


office. Just last week, Rimes
was awarded as Florida
District 2 Business Leader
of the Year for his ability to
generate economic growth in
the community. District 2 is
comprised of 15 North Central
Florida counties.
At the request of the
governor's office, Rimes was
asked to be the committee
liaison for Enterprise Florida,
working in direct contact with
the governor's office to help
promote economic growth and
stability.
With a better opportunity
to serve the community by
working directly with "the
governor's office, Rimes
accepted the position and
officially withdrew from the
District 3 county commissioner
race last Friday.
In his letter to the supervisor
of elections office, he stated
that in his continued effort
to further promote economic
,development for the entire
county, his position is better
suited working directly with
state and local officials as a


representative of Gov. Crist's
office.
He received a congratulatory
call from State Senator Steve


Oelrich's office as well as U.S.
Senator Bill Nelson.
Rimes will still serve as
president of the city commission


for Worthington Springs, but

For example, when a family in

the middle of the night due to
a house fire, Maxwell said he
doesn't want the Red Cross to

The contemporary style of the

On June 15, Union County
Deputy James Crews reported
that he observed a male subject
who appeared to be drinking
a beer as he crossed the
intersection of S.R. 121 and
C.R. 231 in Lake Butler.
When Crews approached
Willie Dave Houston, 48, he
allegedly detected the strong
odor of alcohol and noted
Houston's inability to maintain
his balance. After Houston
gave consent to be searched,
Crews allegedly located a metal
tubular pipe commonly used
for ingesting illegal narcotics.
Crews said he noticed
Houston appeared nervous and
seemed to be trying to speak
without opening his mouth
properly. The deputy was able
to see a white rock-like object
in Houston's mouth. Houston
refused the deputy's requests
to open his mouth and tried to
turn away. He was placed in
handcuffs as Crews attempted
to recover the object which had,
by that time, been swallowed.
Crews also noted in his report
that Houston was wearing a pair

passed on to kid brother Walter
Littles.
Littles himself played a
variety of instruments with
the school band, but is best
known for his skills on the
marching band drum line. After
graduation in 2007, he joined
the drum line at the University
of Florida.
Maxwell also has his ties
with the University of Florida.
Last season, he was asked to
travel with the Gators football
team as chaplain. A while
back, a coach from the team
visited Maxwell's church and
loved it. Before the start of
the season, head coach Urban
Myer was looking for a team
chaplain, and Maxwell's name
was suggested. "He invited my
wife and I over for dinner and
gave us time to think about
it." After careful thought and
prayer, they had a peace about
it, feeling that Maxwell was
called to serve the team.
Maxwell.. and his. wife,
Pergina, traveled with the team
all of last season and Myer
asked him to join them again for
the upcoming season. Maxwell,

Seay said he suspected Houston
may have been involved in a
May 22 early morning break-in
at Lake Butler Dry Cleaners on
Main Street.
Seay advised Houston, who
also uses the alias Super Dave,
of his rights and conducted a
videotaped interview about the
break-in. Houston confessed to
jimmying open the sliding glass
door of the cleaning business
and taking $20 in change and
$100 worth of clothing from
the premises. It was reported
that damages to the door were
valued at $100. Houston was
then charged with burglary,
property damage and petit
theft.

Tampering

The Union County Sheriff's
Office has received numerous
complaints involving the
moving, tampering with,
relocating and/or theft of
campaign signs. According to
Florida Statutes, any person
who willfully or maliciously
removes, damages, destroys,
tampers with or alters in aqy
way a sign is guilty of a second-
degree misdemeanor.
The sheriff's office and the
state attorney's office will
prosecute any violator of this
law.

felt it best for his family to
take some time off from the
Gators. With their second baby
on the way and the new church
building under construction, the
couple decided to stay close to
home. Myer said he understood
and to give him a call if he ever
changed his mind.
"It was a great opportunity for
me," Max,.well said, "because
not only did I get to travel with
the Gators, I got to see my
brother perform at the games."
/After high school graduation,
/Maxwell attended Santa Fe
'Community College, Florida
A&M University, Saint
Leo University and Logos
.Theological Seminary. In 1997,
he was called to establish
Victory Christian Center in
Lake Butler. The following
year, Maxwell said he realized a
need for spiritual covering and
became a member of Covenant
Fellowship International. He is
in full covenant with Bishop
Vaughn McLaughlin and
the Potter's House Christian
Fellowship of Jacksonville.

said. "It will provide kids with
a safe place to hang out and
keep them off the streets."
Even the sanctuary will be
set up to hold Christian artist
concerts. At first, Maxwell
said he had reservations about
Christian rock and Christian
rap music, but realizing that
sometimes even God will use
instruments of the devil to
win souls, he found the music
to have a positive effect on
people. "One time I had some
students at school come up to
me and ask me to download
some of the music on their I-
pods," Maxwell said. He saw
those same students walking
home after school with their
headphones on listening,
to the music. "I know they
were listening to the tunes I
downloaded because I erased
everything else they had on
their players," he said with a
smile.
As excited as he is about the
new church building, Maxwell
said he is even more excited
about other visions he has for
the future. He said he would love
the opportunity to purchase the
vacant land next to the church
that extends to the corner of the
intersection at Sixth Street and
S.R. 121. "Marvin Pritchett has
been generous enough to let us
use some of his property for
parking during church services
and we'd love the opportunity
to purchase the entire property'
and expand our services to the
community."
What Maxwell has in mind
is a 30,000-square-foot major
youth facility to include a
skating rink, indoor flag
football field, three basketball
courts and a fitness center.

Pastor Patrick Maxwell and his brother Walter Littles stop by the new church
building to check on the construction.


After the slab was poured, members of Victory Christian Center used permanent
markers to write messages about God and their new church building.


"When I say youth center, I
mean just that," Maxwell said.
"You don't have to be a member
1 0 e church to use the facilil\. ,
although our church members,
%%ill be asAising in running the"'
programs thaztill, available to
the community."
Construction on the new
church began May 29, and is
expected to be complete by
early November.
Victory Christian Center is a non-
denominational church affiliated with
Potter's House Christian Fellowship
of Jacksonville. You can find out
more about the church by visiting

Although the neighborhood is
not zoned commercial, Richard
Reed has continued to run a
business out of his yard. Spread
throughout the yard is scrap
metal, crossties and a variety of
other debris in direct violation
of county code.
Apparently, Reed has been
doing this for quite some time,
but neighbors were pushed too
far when a loose hog running
around on Reed's property
wandered into Sefcik's yard
and drowned in his pool.
When the parties first
appeared before the board,
Reed said that running the
salvage business was his means
of income, however, the code
violation prompted the board


members to order him to clear
the property of the materials as
soon as possible.
The board gave Reed ample
time to shut down the business,
going so far as to call two more
public hearings on the -matter,
each time giving Reed an
extension to sell the materials
and clean up the yard.
For nine months now; Reed
has neglected to make any
changes toward correcting the
problem.
On June 2, Union County
Building Department Code
Administrator Wayne Mundorf
made a routine inspection of
the property. In a letter to the
board, he wrote, "I inspected
Mr. Reed's property to check


business
progress on his clean up effort.
It is apparent that he is still
running a salvage operation. It
also appears that items are still
being brought in."
After consulting with the
board attorney, it was decided
that it was time to take legal
action against Reed, and on June
17, they notified him that after
being granted two extensions,
he was still in violation of the
code and would henceforth be
imposed a fine of $50 a day
until the violation is corrected.
It is not clear whether Reed has:
yet to take the matter seriously
by cleaning up of the property
and working toward shutting-
down the illegal business.


Information on-kicking the habit


Quitting tobacco use is the
single most important thing
you can do to improve your
health. However, quitting
smoking can be a very difficult
endeavor. The average smoker
takes about seven times to quit
before he or she is successful.
Fortunately, there are many
resources available to assist you
with quitting, such as classes,
support groups, meditation CDs
.... ad.certain medieations- --- ..
There are also two types of
medial treatments available to
help you quit smoking: those
that contain low doses of
nicotine to wean you off the
addiction and those that do not



Giving blood,
a July 4
tradition
Yes, there will be -music,
hundreds of folks in lawn
chairs, Frisbee tossers,
picnic baskets and, of
course, fireworks, but
Fanfare and Fireworks, the
annual Independence Day
community celebration on
July 3 at the University
of Florida campus, has
one other tradition-giving
blood.
While the annual program
begins at 7 p.m., LifeSouth
Community Blood Centers
will have three bloodmobiles
arriving atFlavetField at4:30
p.m. Wendy Hill, manager
of LifeSouth's Civitan
Branch in Gainesville, said
the event typically draws out
the donors.
"It's dependable, but it
depends on the weather,"
Hill said.
For example, in 2007,
when the_ s appeared-
t.thre atening, and attendance
dropped, LifeSouth was
only able to, collect 37 units
of blood. But in 2006 and
2005, when the weather
-was more cooperative, the
bloodmobiles were busy all
evening, taking in 90 units
in '05 and 79 in '06.
The LifeSouth
bloodmobiles are painted
red, white and blue and


contain nicotine and focus on
easing the withdrawal effects
of nicotine addiction.
The patch, gum and lozenge
are all forms of nicotine
replacement therapy that
contain low doses of nicotine.
The advantages of the nicotine
patch and gum is that a
prescription is not needed.
Prescription medicationsis
such as -Welibuirin and Chantix
can also be used to ease nicotine
addiction. These medications
do not contain nicotine but
consist of chemicals that help
reduce withdrawal cravings.
The disadvantage of these
medications is that they can


decorated with stars, so
they are patriotic all year
long. But Hill said there's
something about the mood
that evening that inspires
people to roll up a sleeve.
"It's a time when they
think about the community
and being good'citizens, and
that's the motivation for a
lot of our donors; it ties in
really well," Hill said. "It's
a chance for people to feel
like they're doing something
bigger for our community."
And for LifeSouth, the
timing is perfect. Summer is
a notoriously slow time for.
donations and unfortunately'
a time when more traumas'
occur due to .increased
traveling on the highways.
This spike in blood usage
is a dangerous combination.
Hill said, in addition to
Fanfares and Fireworks,
LifeSouth has scheduled
bloodmobiles for many
other community events
over the long weekend,.

Dear Editor:
Southwest 89th Street is
not a racetrack. We who live
on this street are tired of
the four-wheelers running
wide open and speeding
by people who do not even
liv~oin-this road. The speed
limit is 30 mph and our road
is pot wide enough to pass
on, much less speed on. We
have children who live on
this road andwe are going to
protect them from speeders
in every way possible.
Parents, when you buy
your kids a four-wheeler,
let them tear up your own

This is a quiet and peaceful

to keep it that way.

Bradford Arc to open thrift store to generate funds


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
As a way of dealing with
state budget cuts, Arc of
Bradford County will be
opening a thrift store next
month to generate the revenue
necessary to continue its
services to consumers in
Bradford, Clay and Union
counties.
I-The thrift store, which will
be located at Arc's Sunshine
Industries off of S.R. 100 in
Starke, has a tentative opening
date of Aug. 6. It will be open
Tuesdays-Saturdays, with
hours of operation on
Tuesdays-Fridays set at 9 am.-
3: p.m. (Saturday hours have
ntt been determined yet.)
- Sherry Ruszkowski, the
director of Arc of Bradford
County, which serves
consumers with developmental
disabilities said this year's
budget cuts have been
"devastating." The thrift store
is a way of addressing those
cuts.
,"It's a means. of surviving
these times," Ruszkowski said.
Ruszkowski said Arc
applied for a state grant in
hopes of obtaining funding that
would help open a thrift store
in a vacant building across the
street. The grant application
was unsuccessful, but that was,
not a deterrent. It's just that the
thrift store will have to start
out on a small scale and be
located in-house, Ruszkowski
said.
.The thrift store will be
located in a room Arc has been
utilizing as a cafeteria for its
consumers. Though. that will
provide a bit of an
inconvenience in terms of
moving the cafeteria, the room
is ideal in that it has direct
access from outside the
facility.
"We can kind of isolate this
area," Ruszkowski said.
Sales will generate revenue,
but the existence of the thrift
store will .erve another
purpose: It w ill provide retail
training for consumers-or
"the guys," as they are

BC youth
diversion
program sees
success
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
: Telegraph Staff Writer
Budget cuts have meant the
elimination of programs
throughout the state, but Pastor
3:yron Ramseur of the Starke
Church of God by Faith hopes
4hat one program will not be
affected is one that has proven
to be quite successful in its
first year in Bradford County.
The Bradford County
Community Faith Center
-received a $30,000 grant last
year from the Department of
Juvenile Justice to start a
neighborhood accountability
program. It is considered a
diversion program aimed at
youth who are first-time crime
offenders.
Ramseur said the program
has exceeded expectations.
"The program has to
continue," he said. "It's just
worthwhile."
The program's goal does not
focus on punishment. Instead,
members of a neighborhood
accountability board, who
work in conjunction with the
state attorney's office, stay in
contact with youth, making
sure they are aware of what
they did and how their actions
affected others.
This past year, 21 children
were enrolled in the program.


affectionately called by
Ruszkowski-who will
someday enter the workforce.
"It's going to be exciting,"
Ruszkowski said. "The guys


are really looking forward t6
it."
The thrift store will depend
on community donations, but
the community has already


shown a willingness to make
such donations, making past
fundraising sales in Arc's
parking lot a success.
"We've had good responses


to those," Ruszkowski said.
"We were really getting lots
and lots of donations."
Arc has already received
some donations for the thrift

holiday consists of so much
more than that in the

independence, but Clay
County's 150'h year of
existence. The Lake Butler

Editorial/Opinion

Thursday, July 3, 2008 Page 4B


No uniforms
for school!
Dear Editor:
I was surprised to read that
our school administrators and
board members are
considering school uniforms as
a band-aid solution to major
issues like school violence,
socioeconomic inequality,
distraction, and low academic
achievement that can't be
solved by making everyone
dress alike. I expect
educational leaders to use
empirical research to make
policy decisions rather than
anecdotal evidence and
personal theories. What a
wonderful lesson it would be
for Bradford County students
:to see their educational leaders
engage in a scholarly process
to make policy decisions
regarding the district dress
code!
Most proponents of
mandatory school uniform
policies base their views on the
reported results of the Long
Beach Unified School District
(LBUSD) in California. While
the LBUSD claims that school
uniforms were the cause of
many positive outcomes, the
institution of their uniform
policy occurred concurrently
-it-Whother-school programs
aimed at affecting educational
outcomes. From a
methodological standpoint, it
then became impossible to
establish a cause-effect
relationship between school
.--uniforms- and the outcomes
with so many confounding
variables.
Empirical studies show very
small effects, no effects, and
even negative effects of school
uniforms on the outcomes our
county wants to affect (e.g.,
http://www.members.tripod>c
om/rockqu/uniform,htm).
Brunsma's "The School
Uniform Movement and What
It Tells Us About American
Education: A Symbolic
Crusade" is an excellent
resource for educational
leaders who are considering
implementing school uniform
poliies-- -
In addition to the research
evidence, it is unreasonable to
believe that a single, simplistic
intervention will prove to be
the solution ,to our school
district's woes. The belief that
school uniforms will somehow
lessen some students'
personality-based tendencies
toward violent behavior is
unfounded. It is irrational to
believe that wearing uniforms
will somehow erase inequality
or destroy cliques. Increasing
academic engagement and
performance is far more
complex x"han making students
wear polo shirts and' khaki
pants. School administrators
who believe that enforcement
of a school uniform policy will
be easier than enforcing the
current dress code are kidding
themselves-enforcement is
the issue rather than the
clothing. Lastly, only the
uninformed believe that
uniforms will result in cost
savings for parents. School
uniforms are not functional for
most children outside of
school, so parents will end up
buying and laundering
additional clothing worn when
children come home from
school.
The unspoken message
behind school uniform
policies-that the government
has a right to take away a
citizen'srights to make basic;
-"personal decisions-seems to
contrast with the freedoms our
society values. I see the school
as a microcosm of the
complex, diverse world in
which our graduates will be
expected to function. I hope
that our school board will
consider a dress code policy
that aligns with the emerging

Dress code
would work
if enforced
Dear Editor:
As a parent and taxpayer of
this county, I am somewhat
surprised by the article from
last week's paper regarding the
new dress code policy for
sixth-eighth graders in our
school system. If my memory
serves me right, it was only
three weeks ago that the
proposed 2008-2009 dress
code was published so that
parents could "be well aware
and informed" of the changes.
Yet, after three weeks, another
dress code has been proposed
and published so that the
parents are informed of the
changes "again." My family is
a two-income family of
average earnings. My family
and I do more than our fair
share when it comes to
furnishing school supplies and
other amenities for school
functions. Families are asked
to provide crayons, tissues,
hand sanitizer and other items.
Now it seems that we are
going to be asked to provide
school uniforms for. our
-children. Even if it is at
minimal costs, it is a cost that I
don't want to pay and don't
feel that we should pay.
If some school
administrators don't enforce
the current dress code, then
why implement a new one? If
a male administrator feels
uncomfortable by addressing
the matter with a female
student, then have a female

address the situation. I think
that you should have a dress
code but that it should be
enforced. You say that it is no$
a punishment for the children
to wear the uniforms and that it
promotes a learning
environment. I tend to
disagree with that on' some
level. What about the children
(regardless of socio-economic
status) that have a weight
problem, a disability or low
self-esteem? Something as
minute as the tucking in of a
shirt could very well further
hinder their self-esteem.
Even at minimal costs, if a
uniform costs $20, imagine the
costs that will mount up,
depending on the number of
children that are in a family,
multiplied by the number of
days that your child needs
clothing before starting to do
laundry. This is not going to
cut down the cost of clothing
purchases for my family,
because I will have to,buy one
set of clothing for my children
to wear to school and one that
they wear everywhere else.
Not to mention, living in
Florida, our children will be
dressed in "dress slacks" and a
collard shirt buttoned up and
tucked in during the 90 plus
degree weather. How will this
affect physical education time
with regard to the dress code?
Will students have to suffer
through the heat with this
uniform on -or will dressing out
in first grade .become
necessary? What is next?
There was also mention in
the paper with regard to there

being assistance for some
families who do not have the
opportunity to or the means to
purchase these items. I would
like to know where that
funding is coming from and
who is going to set the criteria
for who this assistance is
available for. Our school
system, family and county
budgets are suffering as we
speak, yet another expense is
added possibly one for the
taxpayer to supplement.
Our children go to over-
crowded classrooms in this
district. Our children are not
afforded any special treatment
like that of a private school.
We have children who are
making passing grades and
failing the FCAT. We have
drugs in the school system.
We have wonderful teachers
that are leaving this county
after many years of service to
go to other districts leaving
vacancies and classrooms with
no teachers for weeks on end.
Yet, this school board has
consistently focused on this
dress code issue. It makes me
wonder how our county school
system would be if we
addressed all of the issues this
aggressively.
I do agree with the person
that said children do not go to
school to be creative they go to
school for an education.
However, my children do have
the right to be comfortable in
their learning environment!
As a taxpayer, I should get to
decide (within reason) what
my child wears to school and
what will be purchased. I
encourage other parents to
contact their school board
member from their district and
discuss the pros and cons of
the second new proposed
dress code for the 2008-2009
school year. I also encourage
parents to show that they do
care about what happens with
this and other matters by

More on

uniforms
Dear Editor:
I read your article in the
newspaper last week regarding
the school dress code for
middle school. I have two
children in public school, one
of which is physically
handicapped. My child, due to
his limited ability to do so,
would have difficulty
conforming to the dress code
that is being proposed.
Even if the school were to
make exceptions for a child
with special circumstances,
that child is going to feel
different by the fact that
everyone around him is
"neatly".dressed and then there
is him. Not only will my child
be different because of his'
disability, he will now be
different in how he is dressed
compared to the other students
in his school (with the
exception of the students who
may be exempt for the same
reasons.)
Both of our children are well
rounded, well-mannered
students that have no
disciplinary problems in the
school system and this does
not stem from them wearing
polo shirts or khakis. It stems
from the home environment


and family life.
If the school board wants to
make a' difference in -thea
learning environment of the'
school, implement new family-
oriented programs and offer a
wider range of student activity
programs. Penalize those who
,do not follow the current dress
code instead of enforcing a
new one on my children.
You may not think that a
child is at school to be creative
but rather to learn. However,
by not allowing our children to
be somewhat "creative" and
individual, you are not
encouraging a learning
environment, you are creating
somewhat of an
institutionalized feeling that
some kids may rebel against..
Creativity is a party of
learning, especially with
music/art classes. Aren't these
important, too?
As far as protecting them
from "status" tensions with
regard to their clothing. How
fair is it to raise them in
uniforms from the time they
are in elementary school until
they graduate to only learn that
life is not fair and things are
not always black and white or
in this case Khaki pants. I
hope that other parents will
join me at the meeting on July
14 to address this issue. You
may contact me at
jsamons@fccj.edu. ,
Sincerely,
John & Janna Samons

Correction
The obituary of James

appeared in the June 12
edition, neglected to list the
name of surviving son-in-law
Tom Harding, husband of
Lawson's daughter Aliese
Harding of Odenton, Md. We
regret the omission.
According to our obituary
format, in-laws are noti
normally listed, but because
another in-law was mentioned
in Lawson's obituary, we
agree with the family that
Harding's omission warrants
correction.

Two arrests
made in
swamp
The scenario leading to the
apprehension and arrest of a
suspect wanted in three
counties on warrants had all
the excitement of a television
show.
On June 25 at
approximately 7 p.m., the
Starke Police Department
received information on the
location of Lemuel Cooper.
Cooper was wanted on
warrants in Clay, Bradford and
Alachua counties.
r Cooper was travelling with
two other people in a Mazda
that was seen by Sgt. Matt
Watson in the area of Water.
Street and S.R. 100.
A traffic stop was initiated
but the vehicle fled eastbound
toward Keystone Heights. Sgt.
I Watson decided to terminate
!the chase when the pursuit
i turned west onto C.R. 18.
I Capt. Harvey Rhoden was
Jin position ,in front of the
!pursuit with emergency lights
engaged when the suspect
I vehicle approached at a high
rate of speed. The suspect
I vehicle lost control and crashed
| into Capt. Rhoden's parked
| patrol vehicle, resulting in
I major damage.
Joshua Harvey Hutchinson,
the driver of the Mazda, and
Cooper fled on foot from the
crash into an area known as the
Santa Fe Swamp. A third
i ccupant, Tessi Sharnez
Cooper, 19, of Starke was
arrested at the scene for breach
of peace, disorderly conduct.
Starke K-9 Sgt. Ricky
SCrews and his K-9 Orin
responded to the scene"and
; began searching for the
Subjects in the dense woods.
SThe Department of Corrections
deployed K-9 officers Lt.
Shawn Swain, Sgt. Eric Hall
and Sgt. Sam Norris with
bloodhound Shelby to assist
with the search.
Alachua's Joint Aviation'
Unit responded and, with the
use of the FLIR system and
the tracking K-9s, found the
subjects hiding several miles
from the crash scene. Officers
physically apprehended Cooper
who resisted arrest with
violence. Hutchinson, 20, "-of
Gainesville, was taken into
custody without incident .
Due to the dense woods and
the suspect's injuries, a
helicopter evacuation was
Requested. The U.S. Coast
!Guard responded and conducted
Ithe difficult task of a hoist
i extraction of Cooper. He was
then transported to Shands UF
where he was treated for a
Broken arm and numerous
punctures from the K-9. He
Swas released to the Bradford
j County Jail.
I


I I I


One of the DOC officers
sustained minor injury from
the extreme conditions and K-9
Shelby needed IV-injected
fluids after tracking the
suspects for over three miles in
the dense woods. They were
both extracted by he Coast
Guard helicopter.
The K-9 tracking teams
stated the swamp underbrush
off Southwest llth Street was
as thick as they had ever
encountered, according to
Starke Police Lt. Barry
Warren.
Lemuel Lender Cooper, 20,
of Melrose was charged with
resisting arrest with violence
(striking Sgt. Crews numerous
times as he attempted to
handcuff him), striking a
police K-9 (numerous times),
two counts of violation of

Hatcher
speaks on
uniform issue
Dear Editor:
On June 23', the Bradford
County School Board voted to
approve to pilot a uniform
dress code at Bradford Middle
School. There has been mixed
response to this vote. While
the vast majority is pleased
with this decision, some are
opposed and others desired
input in the process. We did
not intend for anyone to miss
the opportunity to share your
opinion. While the Telegraph
deadline was missed, we had
WEAG air the board workshop
time and date several times a
day for almost a week,
announcing that uniforms were
on the agenda. We were
hopeful that most of you
would hear about the
opportunity. We did have
some show up in support of the
dress code proposal at that
meeting. To those who missed
it, we do apologize.
While this proposal was
brought to us recently we did
look at the timing for parent
purchases, cost, school safety,
and research on uniforms. We
knew parents would begin
buying school clothes for
August, so we had to move
forward as quickly as possible.
Finding studies online with
-actual data was limited to
NAESP (National Association
of Elementary School
Principal) serving all
elementary and elementary
principals. Thg primary source
of data has come from surveys
of staff, parents, and students.
With cost rising weekly at
this time, we knew that this
was an important issue.
According to USA Today, Oct.
15, 1998, parents spent an
average of $185 per child
buying non-uniform clothing
in 1998, compared with an
average of $104 spent per
child to. purchase uniforms.
Costs today are higher and still
rising; therefore any savings
will benefit families.
School safety is always a
priority for the BCSB. An
article from Education Week
by Jessica Portner, Jan. 21,
1998 stated'that since the Long
Beach Unified School District
in California implemented a
system-wide uniform policy in
1994, assaults in grades K-8
have decreased by 85 percent.
Results of NAESP's
February 2000, telephone
survey of 755 principals
nationwide showed that one in
five (21%) public schools had
uniform policies. Regardless of
whether or not they had
uniforms in their schools,
principals reported positive
effects on the following:
school image in the
community (84%), classroom
discipline (79%), peer pressure
(76%), school spirit (72%),
concentration on schoolwork
(67%) and student safety
(62%)
Similar survey data showed
that 75 percent of parents and
89 percent of staff supported
uniforms and believed they
decrease violence, theft and
gang activity. Although only
15 percent of students
supported uniforms, 59 percent,
agreed that "school uniforms
help school officials identify
trespassers on campus." This is
another safety indicator.
While it is not possible to
attribute the positive results
solely to a uniform policy, our
administrators recommended
this policy and are willing to
take a stand on its value.
They, like those in the survey
above, believe that this will
benefit the students in our
school system. It is these same
individuals who are willing to
do the hard work to ensure that
Sit will be implemented fairly
and consistently, therefore we
need to trust the experience
and knowledge of otir school ,
leaders and support this
program for the good of our
children.
We value your input at the
next Bradford County School
Board Meeting on Monday,
June 14 with the public
hearing at 5:01 and the board
meeting at 6:30.


Respectfully,
Harry M. Hatcher, III

Second
Amendment
upheld
Dear Editor:
On July 4, 2008, Americans
through out the world will
celebrate the Declaration of
Independence. Our forefathers
fought and many died for all of
us to express freedom of
speech, freedom of religious
choice, and many more


freedoms; but, we also have
the right to keep and bear
arms. There are some
lawmakers in Washington and
in our own state capital who
would love to take that right
away from all of us.
There are many politicians
who have an appetite for
power. These -politically
inclined dilemma characters
will seek every opportunity to
take your legal handgun away
from you. Do these error
graduates believe their narrow
-minded world would be safer
if all law abiding citizens gave
up their pistols. Most all
Americans want the right to
protect their family and
property, or at least have a
fighting chance to save their
lives.
If we let these elected or
appointed politicians rewrite
our Constitution because of
personal beliefs, it would be
down right outrageous and
illegal. The fact is all states
threatening to deprive their
citizens of the right to bear
arms are also depriving them
of their Constitutional right.
We know that guns don't kill
people, people kill people with
guns; people kill people with
knives, fists, and clubs, even
poison. The sad fact is that
some people just kill people
with or without guns. If these
lawmakers have their way only
the people who kill people and
rob us blind will do so without
fear.
Recently the U.S. Supreme
Court agreed that our Second,
Amendment right should be
upheld by all States, thus


MSRP $20,360


giving most law-abiding
citizens the right to pack heat.
With all of this said, I have
always believed that strict gun
control laws are still needed
just to ensure that felons and
other persons with behavioral
problems can't legally buy or
own a weapon of anykind..
The-ruling last week by the
High Court was just and fair.
The Second Amendment of the
Constitution set forth by our
ancestors is clear, we as
American citizens have the
irrevocable right to keep and
bear arms.
Thank you.

BC wasting
fuel
Dear Editor:
I ate lunch at Henry and
Ernie's sandwich shop today
and 'there was a Bradford
County Deputy also eating
lunch there.
When I went to leave I
noticed that her patrol car was
running in the parking lot.
There was no K-9 unit nor
was there a prisoner in the
back. The car was left on
solely to keep the interior cool
while this person has lunch.
The deputies in this. county
already get to drive their squad
cars home. I have also seen
deputies dropping their kids
off at school using the county-
owned, taxpayer-paid-for cars.


I would like to think Lnat this #1149.
community would be putting
forth an effort to save money
and the environment, but
apparently not.
Please keep this issue in Tc
mind when you choose your dre
next sheriff. -

Richard Smith
