Commissioner challenges

authority of city manager


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
City employee Gwen Gooch
had worked, for Lake Butler
as an accounting clerk for six
years as of April of this year.
At that time, she was offered
-,the position. of administrative.
assistant 'with the agreenien(
she would work the position
for six months-after the close
of the city's 2007-2008 fiscal
lyear-and then be given an
increase in pay for her;:new
position.
The city presented and
approved its new fiscal budget
last month, and at the October
meeting, City Manager John
Berehtold-:presented the board
with a budget adjustment
to reflect the pay increase
promised to Gooch. It wasn't a
large increase, resulting in just
56 cents an hour more than she
was making as an accounting
clerk. She has a .bachelor's
degree.
New board member Scott
Cason immediately questioned
the city manager about adj sting
the budget the board had just
approved.
,"We're already adjusting the
new' budget \ e jusr aoroved
on Sept. 29? Is theri an\
money in this going' toward


any type of pay adjustment for
employees?" he asked.
Berchtold was only able to
say,"Yes, there's a classification
adjustment for..." before he
was cutoff by Cason.
"But we don't: have a
classification. Before we start
a classification adjustment.'we'
.don't .have classifications for.
an, bod)." Cason sald.
Berchtold again tried to
answer Cason, but was again
cut off mid-sentence as Cason
said, "We don't have pay scales
for anybody."
"But let me finish," Berchtold
said. "This is a carryover from
when Gwen used to be .the
accounting clerk and when she
went to a new position, she
Sdid not receive an adjustment
with the understanding that in
six months, upon satisfactory
performance, her pay would be
adjusted."
Cason asked if that was
something the board voted on.
"We're giving out pay raises
with nothing in writing that
gives you authority to do that,"
he said.
'The city manager explained
that provisions allow him to
grant a merit adjustment ifP
there is sufficient funding to do
so. The total annual increase in
Gooch's pay is $1,364.
"Without a performance


evaluation, you can't have
that," Cason said.
"I've already done a
performance evaluation." .
"But have you done one on
everybody?".
Berchtold said that no, an
evaluation was only conducted
on Gooch. He explained that
kihe promotion was givejto,t10-
iuochc just as former City
Manager' Richard Tillis was
leaving office and Berchtold
was entering the 'position. It
was then that the agreement
was made with Gooch.
"At that time, the
commissioners asked me why
I didn't just go ahead and give
her the raise, but I told them.
Gwen.and I had already made
the agreement," Berchtold
said.
Not one member of the
board spoke up to back this
statement, further antagonizing
the situation.
Cason said, "I don't have
a problem with giving people
pay raises. But the problem
I've got-the commission's
got-is because of personnel
policy. It says it is a commission
responsibility to do this, not
nobody else arid it's .probably
not going to happen in the next
two or three months, but we'll

DOC unveils plans

to nearly double

beds at RMC


Making room for
-more than 2,000
additional inmates
calls for an
expansion of the
already strained
city-owned
wastewater facility.

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
The Department of
Corrections has notified the
city of Lake Butler of its
growth plan through 2012.
The plan calls for adding
two additional buildings at
the Reception and Medical
Center consisting of another
work camp and a full annex
building at the site.
At present, RMC houses
2,634 inmates. The new plans
include an additional work
camp building to house 864
inmates in 2009 and a full
annex for 1,272 additional


inmates.in 2012.
Because of the additions.
taking place at the facility,
DOC has begun negotiations
with, the city in relation to
the possibility of building .a
new wastewater system' to
accommodate the'growtih.
City Manager John
Berchtold has been working
with Bailey Barefoot, DOC's
environmental administrator,
who has agreed on behalf of
the state to pay $3,000 to
the engineering firm, Dyer,
Riddle, Mills & Precourt to
provide a preliminary report
and cost estimate to expand
the current plant's capacity.
In recent months, the
wastewater plant run has
been undergoing upgrades to
parts of the system that are
deteriorating because of age
and stress operating parts.
The city of Lake Butler took
over the wastewater plant in
.1996, which serves not only
residents of the city, but also
the RMC facility. At that time,
the plant, previously owned
and operated by DOC, was
approximately 10 years old.

RMC:
Continued from p. 1A
Years of growth in the city and
the prison have put a strain on
the outdated sewage system that
Berchtold describes as being
at 80 percent capacity when
the 2009 addition at RMC is
completed.
Replacement of the wet well
and lift station began in April
of this year after an agreement
with DOC to pay for one-half
of the total estimated, cost, .
roughly around $200,000. tpst
month, it was pointed out that
tivo air blowers for the system
were down and now need to be
replaced.
According to Hardy Clyatt,
the wastewater plant runs
entirely off of air. "We are
seeing a decrease in our air
flow volume, so this part of the
system is deteriorating," Clyatt
said. "Over 10 years old, this is
completely within the normal
lifecycle of aerators," he said.
-- Berchtold told the.members .
of the board "tfiat DOC has
said it is willing to pay the full
impact on the system for the
planned additional inmates.
"We need to stay on top
,of this," Commissioner Scott
Cason said, "as this is a fairly
important issue."
The report from the engineer
is expected to take three weeks
to complete.

cover that when I get to it."
Pounding on his table several
times, Cason went on to say,,
"We're using personnel policy
to give people pay raises when
really and truly we ain't going
by the personnel policy."
Berchtold agreed the city
does not have a good pay
classification plan, and in
fact, that was the next item
on the board's agenda for the
evening.
The agreement between the
city. employee and the city
manager was made prior to
Cason's arrival on the board,
and he was unaware of the
previous discussions.
A motion was made by Mayor
Jimmy Beasley to give the 56-
cent an hour raise to Gooch and
Cason opposed it.
As the mayor announced the
motion carried 4-1 in favor of
the raise, he stopped himself
and asked Commissioner Ray
Crawford if he had voted, and
he said he had not. Crawford
then said he opposed the raise
as well.The motion still carried,
with a 3-2 vote in favor of the
raise.
CasQn then said, "I make a
motion that until this is done
(referring to the organization of
employee classifications) that
we do not give out any more
pay raises except with approval
of the full commission."
He further stated that in the
event of an employee vacancy,
he did not want the job
advertised until the commission
approved for Berchtold to
do so, nor did he want any
employee terminated without
board approval.
Berchtold offered that-
proper board procedure calls
for support of a motion before
there is a discussion on the
issue, but responded to Cason
anyway.

"If there is an employee
that needs to be terminated
tomorrow, that person should
be terminated properly. If a
person has to be disciplined,
he or she should be disciplined
without any restrictions," he
said.d
In regard to Cason's other
comments, Berchtold said
he felt is was appropriate if
Cason wanted some research
done on establishing employee
job classifications, however, a
proper motion would have been
to direct him, as city manager,
to conduct the research and
bring it back to the board for
discussion.
"I don't think it would be a
wise move for this commission
to be taking action on things
without a full proposal in front
of them. I haven't even had
the benefit of offering any
professional advice on this and
I've done this for 31 years. I
don't think that's fair."
"You knew it was coming,"
Cason said.
"Sir, I did not know what the
exact proposal was nordoI think
anyone on this commission
knew what the proposal was,
and, if you did, then it's a
violation of the Sunshine Law,"
said Berchtold.
No," Cason said, "I'm just
saying until this is fixed, that
we. put _kind of a moratorium
on the issues that are covered
by this policy (as he beat on the
table again for emphasis) unless
the commission approves it."
Berchtold reminded Cason
and the other members of the
board that some members
had recently sent a message
out to the community that
there was strong interest in
buying a lakefront property
only to find out after the city
manager researched the issue
that there were a number of
complications.
"I think that in something
like this, as critical as it is, you
would want my professional
opinion before you react,"


Butler Hospital who will
share information regarding
breast cancer and resources
available in Union County.
This event is not for women
only, men are also welcome
to attend.
On Saturday, Nov. 1, the
VFW Ladies Auxiliary will
hold a Halloween festival
from 5-8 p.m. There will
be games, a fortune teller, a
weenie roast and treats for
the kids. All children must
be accompanied by an adult.


Berchtold said.
Mayor Beasley asked
the city manager what his
recommendation was and
Berchtold said he would like
an opportunity to come back at
the next meeting and present a
plan of action.
"I have no problem updating
some sample policies, but I'd
rather present the board with
a concrete proposal as to how
I think you should proceed,"
he said.
Commissioner Ray Crawford
spoke and said, "I'm going to
retract my vote. I will give you
time to do that."
Members of the board who
were at the meeting six months
ago when )he agreement
between Gooch and Berchtold
came before them made no'
effort to defend their previous
action, yet a citizen who was
also at that meeting, asked to
address the board.
I was here at that meeting
back when MissGwen wasasked
to take on her responsibilities
without an increase in pay,"
Maggie Wetzel said, "and she
agreed to do it in that she would
receive more money at the end
of six months."
Crawford, who had voted not
to honor the previous agreement,
then retracted his vote, said that
he now had no problem giving
SGooch the raise.
"You deserve it. You've
worked very hard for this
raise and since I've been here,
you've done most of the work
around here," he said.
Gooch thanked him for his
comments, but added that after
being an employee with the
city for six and a half years,
hearing some of the issues that
had been recently raised by
the board have left a different
impression on her. ",:


No drop-offs. A party for the
adults will be held following

"In a really old
section, I found
graves from the
rand early 1800s," Brand
S said. The whole
concept behind
the leadership project was to
show his leadership ability
while providing a community
service.
"Some people don't really
understand ; hbw much is


involved in scouts," said
Brand. "They think of it as just
building campfires and tying
knots, and yes, that's a part of
it, but only a small part."
The biggest-and certainly
the most unexpected-thing
Brand has learned from scouts
is disciplining himself to follow
through with commitments.
"Without even realizing it, it
gave me confidence in myself
and my abilities," Brand said.
Brand credits his mom, Cheryl
Brand, as being a motivator in
helping him reach Eagle Scout.
Brand is currently a student at
Lake City Community College
and a member of the Phi Theta
Kappa International Honor
Society. He is majoring in
music and is considering a dual

Firefighters


give time,


training
BY JAMES REDMOND
Union County Fire Dept.
The giving up of time is
nothing new to any volunteer
firefighter. It's commonplace
for a firefighter.to have to leave
a hot meal or get out of bed at
any hour of the night just to
run into a burning building or
spend hours on the side of the
road waiting for an accident
scene to be cleared. While
some of the time these unpaid
professionals give to their
community is highly visible,
most of it is not.
A large amount of that unseen
time goes to being prepared
to respond to emergencies.
Training is one of the most
important, yet time consuming,
aspects of a volunteer
firefighter's life. To be a
volunteer, the state of Florida
requires that a minimum of 160
hours of training be obtained.
While the state requires only
160 hours, most minimum
standards courses run nearly
300 hours.
During this course known
as Firefighter I, volunteers.
spend more than 150 hours
learning in the classroom.
Topics include water supply,
types of equipment and how to
best use them, fire control, fire
protection systems, loss control,
communications and public fire
education and prevention. To
help these first responders make
sense of what they learned,
more than 100 hours are spent
putting the tactics to use in
drills and training exercises.


19
The drill portion of the
course has the volunteers show
what they have learned. The
practical setting requires them
to show their ability to:
hoist and climb ladders,
tie proper knots,
put on their safety equipment
in a certain amount of time,
know what equipment to
use in certain situations and
know how to search for
victims-just to name a few.
The drill portion ends in the
most practical way of all.
Participants are required to
participate in what is known
as a live burn exercise. During
this event volunteers use all the
skills they learned to put out
an actual fire. Instructors are
watching the entire time to see
that everything is being done
in a safe and proper manner.
While this completes their fire
education, volunteers are then
required to obtain medical
knowledge as well.
To be able to take the test
to become firefighter certified,
volunteers are required to
participate in 40 hours of
medical training. The class
is known as First Responder.
The class gives volunteers
the medical knowledge they
need to respond to a medical
emergency. The class covers
signs and symptoms of medical
emergencies, cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR), childbirth,
properly care for broken
bones,, treating burns and
providing care in other medical
emergencies. The class consists
of both classwork and practical

Fire Chief Allen Parrish, Captain Mitch Andrews and Asst. Fire Chief Perry Kent give last minute instructions to
firefighters before a live burn exercise.


skills.
After the volunteers have
taken both courses, and passed
the test for each, it's time to
show the state they understand
what they have learned. Each
participant is required to travel
to the Florida State Fire College
in Ocala to take a 100-question
exam. The exam covers
anything they might have
learned in Firefighter I or First
Responder. To be successful, a
score of 70 or better is required
for certification.
Along with being Firefighter
I certified, the state says
that any volunteer fighting a
wildland fire, also known as a
brush fire, must be certified in
that area. Volunteers spend a
minimum of 40 hours learning
about wildland fires. During
the course topics covered
include how fire might behave,
what human factors present
themselves during a wildland
fire and what methods are
used to fight a wildland fire.
While most of the 40 hours
is spent in the classroom,
some is spent learning to use
the tools associated with fire
suppression.
So now that these brave men
and women have gone through
what the state says they have
to be trained for they're done,
right? Wrong. training for,
the volunteer firefighter is an
ongoing process, just as it is
with a paid firefighter. Members
of the Union County Fire
Department conduct drills at
least twice a month. Along with
honing old skills, they learn
new ones. New equipment,
new types of buildings and new
types of automobiles all present


new hazards volunteers must
be aware of.
SSome of that training recently :,
included a 16-hour Emergency
Vehicle Operations Course.
EVOC allowed members to get
a better perspective on how to
drive their trucks in the safest
manner possible. The two-
day course covered a variety
of topics such as approaching
intersections during an
emergency response, stopping
distances of vehicles and laws
governing emergency vehicles
and responders. Currently,
several new members are
going through their First
Responder course. They will
begin Firefighter I training at
the beginning of 2009.
Though not required,
some volunteers obtain even
more training. Some go to
specialized schools to learn
about hazardous materials,
how to rescue individuals from
certain situations, radiological
monitoring, and incident
command. These are just a
few of the many disciplines
volunteers receive training in to
better serve their community.
Editor 's note: look for an
article and pictures from the--
Lake Butler Volunteer Fire
Department in next week's
edition.

The aftermath of fire... Ironically, during Firefighter Appreciation week, but
devastating to the family involved, the Lake Butler Fire Department responded to a
early morning house fire on Sunday, Oct. 19. The home, located on S.W. 1st Terrace
behind Spires IGA, was completely destroyed by fire. Later that afternoon, the fire
reignited and Union County Fire personnel responded to the scene. The displaced
family was assisted by Red Cross volunteer Mary Brown.

On Oct. 25, beginning
promptly at 9 a.m., join a
guided tour of the Langford-
Every Tree Farm in Union
County. The farm is owned and
managed by the children and
grandchildren of Maurice and
Lota Langford.
This 775-acre property, once
fields of hay and corn, cow
pastures and natural stands of
pines, now supports sustainably
managed longleaf and slash-
pine forests. Hardwoods
grow along Richards Creek,
which bisects the property and
numerous ponds and hardwood
hammocks dot the land. ,
The farm supports deer, wild
turkeys, gopher tortoises (often
seen walking the dirt roads and
sunning by their burrows) and
other woodland creatures. The
family has conducted thinnings

BANDS
Continued from page 1B

the 15 band performances in
five categories, applying the
ratings of superior, excellent,
good, fair or poor for
performance. Each band was
given 15 minutes for its
performance, equivalent to
what's been done for halftime
shows during football games.
The categories and this
year's judges were as follows:
Marching and
Maneuvering-Steve A.
Gardner, director of bands for
Westgate K-8 School in Port
St. Lucie; Marching General
Effect-George W. Walters,
retired director of bands in
Miami; Marching Music

P. Nelson, director of bands at
Satellite High School in
Satellite Beach; Marching
Music Performance Number

of bands at Ruckle Middle
School in Niceville;
Auxiliary-Penny M.
Janowski, private instructor,
Largo; and Percussion-Josh
Bula, recent director of bands
at Leon High School and
doctoral candidate at Florida
State University in
Tallahassee.
The Union County High
School band received all
superior ratings with one
excellent, giving them an
overall final rating of superior.
The Utnion County High
School band performed its
show with a collection of hit
songs from the 70s that
included the Doobie Brothers'
"Takin' it to the Streets,"
followed by Grand Funk
Railroad's "We're an
American Band," featuring a
dance performance by the
Tigerettes, the drum line solo


"Bashin"' with a Tigerette
hoops performance, finished
off with Simon and
Garfunkel's "The Sound of
Silence."
Dorsey said the UCHS band
students were very excited and
pumped up for the day and
gave the crowd its best
performance of the year.
"I was (and still am) so
incredibly proud of them. They
have learned a great deal so far
and I'm excited about what
they will accomplish by the
end of the school year,"
Dorsey said.
The UCHS band's assistant
director is Stanley Figaro, and
Denise Ricks is the auxiliary
instructor. The percussion
instructor is James Goodwin.
The drill designer is Chris
Bonner.
The Bradford High School
band received five excellent
scores and one superior, giving
it an overall rating of excellent.
Their excitement and
camaraderie was felt in the
stands when, upon hearing
their band's scores, the
students began hugging and
crying tears of joy.
"This is a band that has been
through a lot together," said
Bradford band director
Jonathan Hall. "I was'given the
opportunity to begin directing
them in January this year when
the former director, Dustin
Adams, transferred to the
middle school band."
Hall said the Bradford.band
has experienced some ups and
downs in the past couple of
years and has been through
several band directors.
"That makes it hard on kids
to stay with the program when
they might wonder if it was
even worth it," said Hall.
Two years ago, the Bradford
band was down to 27 members
and has since re-grouped and
grown to 52 in number.


Hall said former director
Adams (who attended the
event) started with the band
last year, setting the culture,
and they were able to receive
all good ratings at last year's
assessment. Those students
were able to see that all their
hard work was worth it when,
a year later, they stepped up to
all excellent marks and one
superior, with an overall
excellent rating.
"This band is not only better
than they were a year ago, but
better than they were a month,
even a week ago," said Hall.
When asked how he felt just
before his band took the field
to be assessed for the first time
under his direction, Hall
admitted he was nervous.
"I wasn't nervous in the
sense that I didn't think they
could do it, but because I knew
they were capable and
wondered if they would
continue to execute the
performance at the level we
know they can."
This year's performance
will always stand out for
Bradford High School. Hall is
not only the band's director,
but was the drill director and
completely choreographed the
show titled, "I Dreamed a/
Dream." He is assisted by
Adains and auxiliary instructor
Tammy McCormick.


Tornadoes fall
to 1-3 in
district after
27-6 loss
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was another struggle for
the Bradford football team's
offense, which generated
approximately 50 yards in a
27-6 loss to District 3-2A
opponent Ribault on Oct. 17 in
Jacksonville.
For the third straight week,
Bradford (1-5, 1-3 in District
3) failed to find the end zone
until the final period. The
Tornadoes scored on an 80-
yard drive, but three 15-yard
penalties on Ribault helped
their cause. That drive featured
all five of Bradford's first
downs in the game.
Despite that drive, the
Tornadoes still gained just 28
yards in the second half.
After scoring 19 points in its
first district game this season,
Bradford has averaged eight
points per game in three
district games since then.
Bradford's offense is
averaging nine points per game
overall.
Bradford head coach Steve'
Hoard said his players were at

a physical disadvantage
against Ribault, plus having
lost two starters on the
offensive line has hurt the
Tornadoes this season.
Another starter n 'the line was
hindered against Ribault
because of an ankle sprain.
Also, offensive coordinator
Bryan Jones is no longer with
the team due to personal
issues, Hoard said. That forced
a shakeup of the staff in the
middle of the week.
"It hurt us really bad,
obviously," Hoard said.
Ashley Harden has taken
over as offensive coordinator
to go along with his current
duties as coach of the receivers


and defensive backs. Marcus
Miller, the defensive
coordinator who also coaches
linebackers, will now also
coach the quarterbacks.
'Ribault (4-2, 3-1) had its
own offensive struggles for a
time. Bradford's defense held
the Trojans to 63 yards in the
first half after scoring on the
game's opening series. That
included a minus-8 rushing
total.
However, the Trojans got
approximately 100 yards from
running back Taren Wilson in
the second half. Wilson scored
twice, including an I 1-yard

Six
amendments
on the ballot
Florida voters will find six
proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution on the
general election ballot.
Understanding the
amendments prior to entering
the voting booth is absolutely
essential since they tend to be
lengthy, complicated and
difficult to comprehend. Four
proposed amendments were
initiated by the Taxation and
Budget Reform Commission,
one by the Legislature and
one by citizens' initiative.
Originally there were nine
proposals, but three were
removed by the Florida State
Supreme Court. Voters will
find amendment numbers
five, seven and nine vacant
on the ballot, which represent
the invalid proposals.
Prior to 1968, Florida
voters had no way of
initiating changes to the
constitution other than
petitioning the Legislature.
The revised 1968 constitution
contains a provision for
citizens to gather signatures
and have proposed
amendments put directly on
state-wide ballots, a
sometimes risky proposition
that could possibly degrade
the constitution with
amendments better handled
by laws.
Florida received substantial
publicity in 2006 with the
passage of the "Pig
Amendment," which had to
do with pregnant sows, that
many people thought
"cluttered" the constitution.
In 2000, voters approved a,
high speed train connecting:
Miami, Orlando and Tampa,
in spite of the governor
calling it prohibitively
expensive/ In 2004, Florida
voters removed the
amendment from the
constitution.
From the book, "Proposed
Constitutional Amendments


to be voted on November 4,
2008," distributed by the
Division of Elections at the
Florida Department of State,
the Telegraph will review the
six proposed amendments
below, offer comments and
express opinions, which are,
of course, non-binding
recommendations.
Amendment 1
(Legislature)
-Ballot Title: Declaration of
Rights
Ballot Summary:
Proposing an amendment to
the state constitution to delete
provisions authorizing the
Legislature to regulate or
prohibit the ownership,
inheritance, disposition, and
possession of real property by
aliens ineligible for
citizenship.
The proposal was
submitted by the Legislature
to change an existing statute
that allows the state to
regulate or prohibit aliens
from owning or controlling
real property. "Real" property
is the legal term for land.
Aliens, as referred to in this
article, aren't from Mars or
the moon. They are people in
the country without proper
credentials or those with
records that bar them from
becoming American citizens.
Do not support. this
platitude. It sounds as
American as apple pie, but its
passage could put an alien in
the house next door whose
criminal record keeps him
from obtaining citizenship.
Vote "no" and sleep well at
night. If. you vote "yes," the
state will be unable to
prohibit aliens from buying
homes or other property in
your community.
Amendment 2 ( Citizen
Initiative)
Ballot Title: Florida
Marriage Protection
Amendment
Ballot Summary: This
Amendment protects
marriage as the legal union of
only one man and one
woman as husband and wife


Page 4B


and provides that no other
legal union that is treated as
marriage or the substantial
equivalent thereof shall be
valid or recognized.
Vote "yes." Leave aside
morality, religion and
psychology. In 4,000 years of
recorded history, the term
marriage has been defined as
a union by and between one
man and one woman. Leave
the historical term as is and
look elsewhere for a term that
describes living arrangements
for other combinations.
Amendment 3 (Taxation
and Budget Reform
Commission)
Ballot Title: Changes and
Improvements Not Affecting
the Assessed Value of
Residential Real Property
Ballot Summa-ry:
Authorizes the Legislature,
by general law, to prohibit
consideration of changes in
improvements to residential
improvements to residential
real property which increases
resistance to wind damage
and installation of renewable
energy source devices as
factors in assessing the
property's value for ad
valorem taxation purposes:
Effective upon adoption,
repeals the existing
renewable energy source
device exemption no longer
in effect.
In other words, the
property appraiser cannot
increase your assessment for
adding storm shutters or other
storm protective devices to
your home. But that
provision is only one of many
levies potentially affected by
the proposed amendment,
including voter-approved
exemptions for new
businesses, business
expansions and 'historic
properties. Landowners
should contact the county
property appraiser for
questions concerning
individual holdings.
Vote "yes" on proposed
Amendment no. 3
See BALLOT, p. 8B


Response to
PTO article by
Supt. Hatcher
Dear Editor:
I would like to share with
you regarding some recent
events a Starke Elementary
School.
The purpose of this letter is
to clear up any
misunderstandings regarding
who is responsible for some
recent accounting issues.
The PTO has not and, I
repeat, has not been
responsible for any late
payments to vendors or any
other misuse. The PTO of
Starke Elementary School is an
outstanding group who does
outstanding work for our
students and staff. Their
fundraisers are deposited into
an internal account at Starke
Elementary. Recently we have
requested an internal audit of
this account and the PTO
account is accurate and to the
best of our knowledge, all
creditors have been paid. The
investigation continues as to
why we got behind with our
creditors.
Please join me and thank the
PTO of Starke Elementary for
all their good efforts and
encourage them to continue


their great work.
Harry M. Hatcher, III

Parent has Pop
Warner
complaint
Dear Editor,
For as long as I can
remember, my son Matthew
has wanted to play football.
However, in July of 2005 he
was diagnosed with a rare
condition known as Legg-
Perthes Disease. During the
disease process, which takes
approximately 3-5 years, the
supply of blood to the blood
vessels in the ball of the hip is
cut off, causing the bone to die
and break away. Once the dead
bone is gone, new blood
vessels and bone begin to
grow. While the new bone
grows, it is extremely soft and
easy to damage; therefore the
child is restricted from any
activity that may cause impact
to the hip, which would
include most sports. Otherwise
the bone will not grow
properly and there will be
lifelong effects to the person's
hip including arthritis and
limited rang of motion.
This past summer my
husband and I had been


considering signing Matthew
for Pop Warner. Since it had
only been 3 years since his
diagnosis, we took Matthew to
the doctor to see if he could
finally play any sports. On July
21", we traveled to the
Shriner's Children's hospital
in Tampa. There we received
wonderful, but frustrating
news. Matthew had been
misdiagnosed and his hip was
fine. This news was frustrating
because, all this time we had.
kept him from doing lots of
things that "normal" boys his
age do, which was an
extremely difficult task
because he also suffers from
ADHD. But the news was a
blessing nonetheless.
So we signed him up for
Bradford County Pop Warner
football. Matthew was so
excited! On the first day of
practice, the coach, Joe
Gordon, told parents that this
division of Pop Warner, which
was the Mighty Mites, was
about learning football and
good sportsmanship. Every
child had a minimum amount
of playing time during each
game, which was 12 plays, so
no child would be excluded
from participating. This was a

'Canes finally" beat Williston


for SMAC championship


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It seems like year after year,
Williston prevents Bradford
Middle School from winning
the Suwannee Middle School
Athletic Conference
championship in volleyball.
This year was no different-at
least in that regard.
What changed is that the
Hurricanes, despite dropping
the first game of the match,
finally claimed the SMAC
title, topping Williston 15-9 in
a tiebreaker.
Besides winning the
championship, the Hurricanes
kept a perfect season intact.
They finished the year 16-0.
"I am just so proud of these
guys," head coach Eric


Verunac said.
Verunac di in't even care
that on Oct. 20 he was sporting
pink hair, thi, result of a
promise he mas le to the players
if they came th rough and won
the champions tip. He had to
explain himself at Subway, he
said, when leh went to get
lunch, but adde< i, "It is totally
worth it."
Bradford lost the first game
to Williston 24 -22. At that
point, Skyler Fe Itner said she
and several of ter teammates
were in tears.
"We were re illy nervous,"
she said.
However, Fell ner and the
rest of the te him's eighth-
graders did no t want the
season to come to an end


against Williston again.
Williston had defeated
Bradford the last two years in
the SMAC championship
match. After last year's loss,
Juanita Carter vowed that
Bradford would return to the
championship match her
eighth-grade year and defeat
Williston.
"It was important," Carter
said, but she admitted she was
worried that the rest of her
teammates were going to give
up. It was something she did
not want to see happen, so she
did her best to pump her team
up and inspire the players to
play like they had all season.
"She was the one who kept

It would be easy to imagine
Clayton Mosley and the other
members of the Keystone
Heights baseball team putting
pressure on themselves to
follow up last season's run to
the state semifinals, but one
thing Mosley does not have to
worry about is weighing his
options after high school. The
senior has already taken care
of that, verbally committing to
play for the Army Black
Knights.
"It makes it a lot easier and
more relaxing to be able to
enjoy your senior season,
Mosley said of making such a
decision prior to the start of the
season.
Several schools were
showing interesting Mosley,
including the Univiersity of
Central Florida and the
University of North Florida.
Mosley admitted he had not
given much thought to playing
for one of the service
academies, but that changed
after Army coaches began
recruiting Mosley at the
conclusion of last year's high
school season and prior to the
start of summer travel ball,
(Mosley plays for the
Gainesville Hardballers.)
Mosley, who said he never
even considered leaving the
state, likes what he saw of
Army's program. He liked the

fact that every player seems to
work together toward a
common goal, he said. He also
said the atmosphere made him
feel comfortable.
"The coaches and the
players are the most humble
group you'll ever meet,"
Mosley said. "It's like a huge
family up there."
Keystone head coach Alan
Mattox said Mosley has a


tremendous opportunity to be
part of a Division I program
that has won at least 25 games
each of the last five seasons.
Mattox said the Knights are
getting a player who is a
tireless worker and a good
athlete all the way around who
especially makes his presence
felt defensively with tough
catches in center field.
"He's a guy you want in the
lineup every day," Mattox
said. "He's going to take avay
runs with his defensive play."
Besides playing in the
outfield, Mosley also pitches.
The senior said Army coaches
told him he could possibly
have opportunities to pitch, but
he will definitely compete for
a starting position in the
outfield. Mosley welcomes the ,
chance to do both, but also
looks forward to remaining in
the outfield, where he takes
pride in his play.
"I work extremely hard on
my defensive side," he said.
"That's where I feel like I'm
,strongest."
Mattox said Mosley is also a
solid hitter in the middle of the

LETTERS
Continued from page 4B

relief to hear since Matthew
had never played a contact
sport. Unfortunately, we found
out that what Joe had said was
not true. The truth was that the
boys with more experience,
and the boys whose fathers
where coaches where given all
the play time while the others
watched from the sideline.
On Sept. 13, the Mighty
Mites had a game in Starke.
The head coach, Joe Gordon,
was not at this game; only the
assistant coaches were present.
I sat through the first three
quarters of the e gamewatching
Matthew sit on the sidelines,
along with a few other boys
who were inexperienced,
repeatedly asking to go in the
game, only to be told no each
time, while the coach's sons
had not been pulled out of the
game at all. Finally, at the
beginning of the fourth quarter
I had had enough. I went to
Braxton Britt, who is the
football coordinator for
Bradford County, and told him
what was going on. He was as
mad as I was. He went to the
coaches and had them put all
the boys in that had been
sitting on the sideline. So
Matthew finally got to go in,
for 4 plays, then he was put
back on the sideline for the rest
of the game.
That following Monday at
practice, my husband and I
expressed our concerns about
what had happened at the
game. Joe was very
understanding and assured us
that it only happened because
he wasn't there and the other
coaches were new. He also
assured us that it wouldn't
happen again. Then, on Sept.
20, I drove Matthew an hour
and forty- five minutes away
to the town of Pierson for the
game, only to experience the
.same thing, only this time my
son had to sit on the sidelines
in the pouring rain. He was in
for the first 6 plays of the
game, and then he sat on the
bench the rest of the time.
Only this time there was a Pop
Warner official there checking
the mandatory play sheets.
However, we she came to the
Bradford sideline, she was lied
to and told that all the boys
had gotten their 12 plays.
When Matthew heard them
talking, 'e turned and told her
that-he hadn't gotten his 12
pla. s, and the coa~hd lied and
said that he didn't know what
he was talking about. During
this, I. also had to listen to the
parents yelling at the Pop
Warner official, telling her
she's not supposed to talk to
the players and that she needed
to mind her own business and
get off the field. Of course
these were the coach's wives
and the parents of the other
boys that play the whole game.
At the end of that game, I


took my son into the restroom,
took his uniform off and
turned it in before we left the
field. I refuse to have my son's
self-esteem destroyed because
his father is not a coach and he
had been unable to play
football before now.- I have e-
mailed Pop Warner and told
them the situation and
requested that my $100 be
refunded, only to be given the
runaround. When I finally
threatened to write this letter to
the editor, I received a
response from Ricky Wright,
the president. He told me he
was forwarding my e-mail to
Joe Grooms, and that I would
be hearing something soon. I
did receive an e-mail from Mr.
Grooms on 9/25, and he
informed me that he had
requested copies of the
mandatory play sheets. I
reminded him that I had heard
the coach lie with my own
ears, so I wouldn't be surprised
if the documents were
falsified. I have not heard
anything from anyone at Pop
Warner since. The only person
that I have dealt with in my
Pop Warner experience that
showed any interest in my
feelings, the feelings of my
child, or the fairness of the
game was Braxton.
The main reason that I am
writing this letter is not
because I am angry. I want
other parents to know the truth
about what really goes on in
Pop Warner. If your child is a
first-time player a child whose
father is unable to coach, then
you may want to consider
other associations for your
child's sports. I have since
signed Matthew up for Upward
Bound Flag Football, and he
loves it. He looks forward to
goirg to practice. I don't have
to argue with him about going
or have him pretend that he is
sick to get out of it. And he
gets his fair share of playing
time without asking, or should
I say begging, for it.
Becky Garlo

Response to
letter about
Pop Warner
Dear Editor:
I would like to remind
everyone that Pop Warner is
volunteer program. Whether it
be at the local level or the
league level, everyone
involved is working for the
kids and for no other reason.
In regards t9,the playing time
of each child, this is usually an
issue in the first couple weeks
of play as in this case as the
coaches learn the game ability
of each player and become
organized with substitutions.
We also have because of this a
MPR (Mandatory Play Rule)
that all coaches are required to
follow a minimum play
requirement set by team size.
The plays that are required by
each child to play is counted
and verified by the opposing


team. for those that have fallen
short with play requirements
the game is stopped and the
players are put in the game
until they meet the play
requirements and for this the
plays are counted by the
officiating staff.
As for the accuracy of the
counts it will likely always be
a debate. I will also not deny
that some of the players play a
lot more than others based on
the position that they play and
the level of experience that
they have. What happens in
most cases is that a first-year
player is limited to the
positions) that they play for
the most part because of safety
concerns. With this you will
have around 10 different
players that will all play the
same position, and with those
positions the number of plays
that are available in a40 min
game is limited. This has
always been normal for first
year players to spend most of
the year learning the game and
gaining experience towards
more safe playing time.
As for the concerns of the
parents) I always ,try to
accommodate the parents,
which may or may not produce
the results that the parents)
would like to see. With that by
no means would a head coach,
assistant coaches or
the football Coordinator
(Coach Joe) who
has volunteered his time for
the last 30 plus years to the
community, try to lower the
self-esteem of a child. Also
for her concerns of the
response time from Mr. Ricky
Wright or Joe Grooms from
the Putnam level, who like the
rest of us have an everyday job
that they must go to and a
family to attend, I feel like
they responded ina timely
manner with her e-mail
starting around the 20th of
September and a follow up e-
mail from the league being
sent out the 22nd of September
and "corresponding e-mail
following thru the 28th.
As always, our goal is to
provide a drug-free
environment for our youth
while instilling teamwork,
sportsmanship and most of all
acceptable academic
achievement.

Short-handed
Indians no
match for
Bolles
BY ARNIE HARRIS
Telegraph Staff Writer
Missing three crucial players
did not help matters for the
Keystone Heights football
team, which lost 48-7 to
District 3-2A opponent Bolles
on Oct. 17 in Jacksonville.
Keystone head coach Chuck
Dickinson said his team did as
well as could be expected
considering Bolles' perennial
dominance in district play, but
the Indians were still without
the services of starting
quarterback Brantley Lott as
well as one of their key
running backs-Marcel
Robinson-who aggravated
his sore ankle on his first run
from scrimmage.
Also missing from action
was defensive standout Jacob
Van Wagner.
"We also didn't help
ourselves any with a number
of illegal procedure calls
against us," Dickinson said.
Things began inauspiciously
for the Indians (2-4, 2-2 in
District 3) on their first series
as quarterback R.J. Buxton's
screen pass was deflected into
the air and brought down by
Bolles defender Aaron Riley.
Riley returned the interception
6.0 yards for a touchdown to
put the Bulldogs (6-0, 4-0) up
7-0 just 1:22 into the game.
The Keystone offense,
relying heavily on running
back Thomas Ricketts, proved
ineffectual as Bolles, on its
next series, marched down the
field behind the hard-nosed

lineup, but said the senior must
continue to improve in being
patient at the plate. Mosley is a
tough competitor who finds it
hard to lay off pitches, Mattox
said.

running of Stephen Barnett to
put another score on the board.
Quarterback David Skinner
threw a 4-yard touchdown pass
to put the Bulldogs up 14-0
with 4:56 remaining in the first
quarter.
Once again smothering the
Indians' offensive efforts, the
Bulldogs marched 73 yards,
again mainly behind the
running of Barnett, who scored
on a 3-yard run. Bolles led 21-
0 early in the second quarter.
The Indians, beginning on
their own 27, mounted a
sustained drive behind
Ricketts' running and two
completions from Buxton to
Shane Jennings and Ryan
Latner. Those plays, covering
34 yards, put the Indians at the
Bolles 26. From there, a 43-
yard field goal attempt by Tim
Frysinger fell a yard short.
Bolles marched 75 yards
behind passes from Chandler
Carr to Barnett and Mason
Jonston. The latter pulled in a
24-yard touchdown pass from
Carr for a 28-0 lead with 1:33
remaining in the half.
The Bulldogs came out in
the second half and picked up
where they left off in the first.
They took the kickoff and
marched 83 yards with Barnett
and Jawan Jamison toting the
ball. Jamison broke off a 45-
yard run to the Keystone 36.
The drive ended with Jamison
carrying the ball into the end
zone from the 2.
Bolles again lit up the board
on its next series, this time
going 58 yards. Barnett carried
the ball to paydirt from the 14
for a 42-0 lead, at the 4:02
mark of the third quarter.
The main bright spot for the
Indians came on their next
series when an option pass
from Ricketts to Latner


Mosley said he wants to
make improvements in his
hitting, such as driving the ball
to the opposite field with
authority, and also plans to
concentrate on his speed and
overall body strength.
There's no doubt Mosley
will put in the work necessary
to become a better player and
make an impact at West Point,
Mattox said.

there, Buxton connected with
Travis Westberry for a

fourth quarter that capped the
scoring.

run on which he went
practically untouched up the
middle, putting Ribault up 27-
0 with 7:09 left in the game.
"The kids just got gassed in
the second half," Hoard said.
It was the passing game that
gave the Trojans their first
points when Javon Bell scored
on a 15-yard pass from Malik
Jackson. The Ribault offense
never threatened to score again
in the first half as the Trojans
punted twice, turned the ball
over on downs once and
committed two turnovers.
One of those turnovers put
an end to Ribault's second
series. The Trojans were
facing second-and-10 from the
Bradford 48 when John Tyson
forced a fumble on a
quarterback sack. Joseph
Lombel recovered the loose
ball for Bradford.
The Bradford offense,
though, went three-and-out, as
was the case with the team's
six first-half possessions (not
counting the last possession 'of
the half during which time
expired).
Punter Tyler Cubbedge did
his part to help his defense out
with kicks that pinned the
Trojans deep in their territory.
He averaged 35 yards on punts


"He's just a tireless worker,"
Mattox said, while also adding
that Mosley is everything a
coach-could want in a player.
Mosley said a lot of credit
goes to his coaches at


that were not returned until
Ribault's Wilson returned one
7 yards late in the half.
"He's been pretty consistent
for us," Hoard said of
Cubbedge.
Bradford's Rodney Mosley
put a stop to Ribault's last
possession of the half when he
intercepted a pass at his own
28. The Trojans, though, came
out in the second half and
scored on three straight
possessions.
A pass interference penalty
on Ribault gave the Tornadoes
their first first down of the
game, which occurred with
approximately five minutes to
play. The Tornadoes then
gained two more on the next
two plays when Mosley gained
10 yards on a run and Ribault
was flagged for a personal
foul. Another personal foul
penalty later in the drive gave
Bradford a first down at the
Ribault 19. Quarterback Trey
Winkler hooked up with tight
end Scott Crews from there for
a touchdown with 2:40
remaining on the clock. The
PAT was no good.
Ribault was not content to
run out the clock, trying to
take a shot.downfield with a
deep pass, but Bradford's
Charles Jones was in position
to pull down his second.
interception of the night.

The team came out in the
second game fired up, Verunac
said. Bradford won 25-19 to
force a tiebreaker.
"We just had to play smart
and calm down," Lakia Bright,
another eighth-grader, said.
Eighth-grader Sonya
Thornton said the team quit
making stupid mistakes and
regained its focus on the goal
at hand-winning the SMAC
title.
"We really wanted it so
bad," Thornton said.
Vocal support from fans in
the crowd as well as from
teammates on the bench "was
really uplifting," Thornton
said. Jaci Atkinson, a sixth-
grader, said she and her
teammates were cheering on
the players on the court so
much that "we couldn't talk
any more."
Carter said once her team
forced the tiebreaker, she was
confident the Hurricanes were
going to win. Bradford got off
to a fast start, going up 7-0 on
seven straight service points by

The eight eighth-graders got
the championship they wanted,
but the sixth- and seventh-
graders said they will settle for
nothing less in the coming
years. Atkinson and seventh-
grader Mackenzie Gault said
they look forward. to
continually improving and,
hopefully, winning more
championships.
Sixth-grader Lainie Rodgers
said this year's win will help
future teams.
"Now we have the
confidence to do it," Rodgers
said. "We know we can do it."
As for coming up with what
their coach would have to do if
they won, the Bradford players
had several ideas, including
having him wear a dress to
school and having his head
shaved. Verunac nixed both
ideas, but said he could live
with the pink hair when that
was suggested.
The players really got into
giving their coach a new look.
Gault said they sprayed so
much color in Verunac's hair
that it dripped down into his
face.
It was a magical moment for
the players. Eighth-grader
Nicole Jenkins said, "I wish
our season wasn't over."

left after the last of the old
trailers from Sid's Trailer Park
was torn down. I left messages
for all the commissioners to
call me. None did. I was told
once by Mr. Beasley, Mr.
Cason is who I should talk to,
but he was always in North
Carolina. I had already left hinm
a message.
Yesterday, I talked with
Lake Butler City Manager
John Berchtold and advised
him about the problem. He,
being very professional, said
"he would check into it."
Within an hour, Hardy
Clyatt was out here with a
crew and in just a couple of
hours, cleaned up and removed
all the debris 1 had been trying
to get help with.
Lake Butler is very fortunate
to have a city manager like Mr.
Berchtold and his staff of city
employees. As a citizen and
taxpayer, I find it appalling
that the commissioners could
not come to terms over such a
small amount of money to give
the city employees a raise;
additional monies were found
to offset this expense. I find it
even more appalling that they
don't return calls to their
constituents.
Another thing I find very
offensive, as a Christian, is the
swearing by one of the
commissioners during regular
meetings at City Hall. We, as
citizens, should not condone
this kind of behavior by an
elected official. There are laws
that prohibit such. Intelligence
alone tells one that you don't
represent your city and
constituents this way.
Again, I just wanted the
great citizens in this town to
know that we are blessed to
have a city manager who is
working for the betterment of
all of us and doing a great job.
The -elected city
commissioners should work
with him, not against him for
their personal views.
Chuck Floyd

Voters, do your
homework
Dear Editor:
I've been following very
closely the campaigns of both
presidential candidates and
after the final debate, I am*
very concerned that if Senator
Obama is elected presidentof
this greaf country, he and the
liberal Congress "will turn this
country into a "welfare state."
Senator Obama's economic
plan includes massive tax
increases to pay for his "spread
the wealth" program. Until our
economy recovers (and it will


over time), we, the average
American who pays the
majority of taxes in this
country, cannot afford a tax
increase. Contrary to what
Senator Biden might think,
paying higher taxes is not
patriotic! Hasn't Biden heard
of the Boston Tea Party?
Obama's economic plan
calls for a tax increase for
workers making more than
$250,000 annually and
redistributing those taxes to
workers who make $42,000' or
less annually. Senator Obama
says that would mean a tax cut
for 95 percent of American
workers. The senator needs to
check with the Treasury
Department. He would find
that 45 percent of American
workers do not pay income
taxes. He can call it a "tax cut"
if he wants to, but I call it
sending those workers a
"welfare check."
How can you cut taxes for
workers who don't pay taxes
to begin with? Senator Obama
and Senator McCain referred
to "Joe the Plumber" several
times during the debate. Why
should someone like Joe in
Ohio want to pay the plumbing
company he works for
knowing if he exceeds that
$250,000 threshold, he's going
to be taxed heavily so someone
who doesn't have the same
ambition and drive to get
ahead is going to get part of
that money? Senator Obama
blew it off in a stump speech
in New Hampshire today
(10/16/08) by saying, "How
many plumbers do you know
who make $250,000 a year?"
The senator has obviously
never hired a plumber!
This country was built .on
the premise that the
immigrants who came here
could make a better life for
themselves and thejr families
with hard work! There was no
politician telling them, "Sorry,
but if you work too hard and
make too much money, theta
government is going to take a
portion of what. you have
earned in the form of higher
taxes and give it to someone
who has no drive or ambition
or desire to get ahead."
I wonder what people like
Orville and Wilbur Wright and
Thomas Edison and Benjamin
Franklin and Henry Ford and
Eli Whitney and Firestone and
all those great inrenrors and
entrepreneurs who worked so
hard o1 help make this country
the greatest country in the.
world would think if they
could see. what America is in
danger of be.comine-a socialist
welfare state?
I could go on and on
building a case against Senator
Obama, but I want to say one
last thing to the voting citizens
of the Lake Region. Do your


"homework" where these
candidates are concerned, and
I think you will find that this
great country cannot afford an
Obama presidency.
Betty Hodges

We can get
through this
Dear Editor:
I don't know about you, but
stupidity scares me. I watch as
it unfolds everyday as the
lawmakers in Washington try
to wrangle out deals in regard
to the current financial rhess
instead of getting down to
business and fixing the
problem. I am of the mindset
that we (the American people)
need to deal with our own
problems as much as we can.
If we wait for Washington, we
will be waiting for a long time.
Besides, I don't want them in
my business anymore than is
absolutely necessary.
The problem that is affecting
most of us is on main street,
not Wall Street. Our small
town businesses are struggling.
Money is tight for the business
person, because money is tight
for the consumer. It is a fact
that when the economy is
good, small, independent
businesses thrive, but when
there is a down turn, they
suffer more than their fair
share. But we are small town
America, we are survivors, and
we will make it.
It is important for each of us
to support our local merchants;
the ones who have stuck it out
in our community through the
ups and downs; the ones who
always contribute to local
causes and fundraisers. There
is very little, if anything, that
you can't find here that you
need. The local restaurants
have great specials going on,
our grocery stores advertise
their specials each week and
you don't have to drive as far,
the many small, specialty
shops in our community offer
everything from the necessities
of life for home and business
to unique gifts and gadgets.
So, the next time you need
something or want to go out to
eat, think local first. Let's stick
together and support one
another to keep our friends and
neighbors working and our
businesses open.

Visitors Can Cash In At Roadshow


Gold scrap selling big at Roadshow,

as price for metal hits record high
BY ARCHIE DAVIS
Roadshow Representative Staff Writer


Roadshow Representative Archie Davis assists a visitor with pocket watches
and clocks. The collection sold at the Roadshow for more than $2,000. Other
visitors brought a variety of items including coins, toys, dolls and trains.
Admission is free and no appointment is necessary.


\Alladci Clean out your attics, closets
and lock box, the Roadshow is coming to
town. Roadshow experts are in town all this
week purchasing antiques and collectibles.
While the Roadshow will accept anything
that's old, they are focusing on gold and
silver, also coins made before 1965,
military items, musical instruments, pocket
and wrist watches. Modern jewelry with
diamonds and other precious stones are also
being accepted.
One person that attended the Roadshow
brought in an 1864 Civil War sword and
a coin collection and left 45 minutes later
$10,000 richer. Another was not as lucky
but seemed happy with the $355.00 they
received for broken gold jewelry. "I think
this is a great idea" said one lady that sold
her old class ring and some broken gold
chains. "The stuff was just lying in a dresser
drawer for \ears." She received $248.42 for
her efforts. Jeff Parsons, the president of
the Treasure Hunters Roadshow explained
what the show is all about. It's a chance for
anyone to sell their stuff and get what it's
really worth he said. It seems everyone has

items they have wondered about or want to-
.sell but really don't know where to go said
Parsons. He said the show has been in over
600cities since 2001. When asked what
the most memorable experience was he had
a quick answer. "Without a doubt it was
a show in Pennsylvania when an elderly
gentleman asked if we could send someone
with him to visit an old toy store he had
closed down 50 years ago. It was like
walking back in time" Parsons said "the
store's 50 year old inventory was still on
the shelves the store was a treasure trove of
collectible toys. I have never seen anything
like it. It was simply unbelievable!"
It seems the store was closed due to World
War II. "I had to go serve my country."
the owner told Parsons. Serve he did
for the next 35 years. The collection of
vintage toys still in their original boxes
sold for more than $650,000. All this
week Roadshow experts will be accepting
various types of antiques and collectibles.
The event is free and no appointment is
necessary.
