A young Brooker man suffered
serious injuries in an accident that took
the life of another driver.
Twenty-five year old Brad Lang of
Brooker was driving east on S.R. 100
in Putnam County when his 1994 Ford
pickup reportedly drifted over the
centerline into the path of an oncoming
vehicle. Lang's truck struck the 2008
Chevy pickup driven by 20-year-old
Joey Christopher of Norton, Va.
Lang's truck spun counterclockwise
and overturned, coming to a rest on
the south shoulder of the highway.
Christopher's truck also spun
counterclockwise and came to a rest on
the north shoulder.
The young Virginian was pronounced
dead at the scene.

Habitat looks for Lake Region families, volunteers
BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Clay County's Habitat for Humanity
Director Gamble Wright said last Friday
her organization would like to make
a commitment to the Lake Region.
Habitat carefully picks families needing
a boost, and, with the cooperation of
contributors and volunteers, constructs
houses for them.
The homes are not entirely free, the
family or individual must meet certain
requirements and able-bodied family
members must contribute sweat equity
in the construction of their new home
or someone else's.
Last Friday, Wright, former
organization President Jerry Kemp and
other Clay Habitat staff turned over
the keys to a newly remodeled home
on Sequoia Road west of the Big Tree
Lakes Estates off C.R. 214.
The proud new homeowners are
Darren and April Baker, formerly
of Middleburg. The couple has one
toddler, Jerimiah, with another child on
the way. Darren is in an apprenticeship
electrician program. April is a stay-at-
Darren said he. encountered the
program when he mentioned to
someone at his church that he needed
a home of his own for his new family.
The church member directed him to the
Clay County Habitat for Humanity.
The house the Bakers are moving
into was actually built by Habitat some
time ago. Its original owners moved
elsewhere and turned the house back
over to'the organization. Over time; it
had fallen into some disrepair and the
yard needed serious attention.
Last week, the Bakers were doing last
minute chores to get the place ready for
Friday's dedication ceremony. A next-
door-neighbor-to-be, Devon Douylliez,
spied the Bakers pushing a hand-.
operated push mower though tall grass
and rode his riding lawn mower over to
lend a hand. On Friday, the house was
almost completely devoid of furniture,
but it sparkled inside and out. And the
yard looked nice, too.

Union County Public Library and the
courthouse records storage facility.
The next day, Nov. 18, new District

The governing board of the North
Florida Regional Chamber Of
Commerce has fired Ron Lilly, the
organization's president and CEO for
the past four years.
The board is being careful to only
discuss allegations its members feel can
be backed up, but questions arose at the
October board meeting about the results
of the chamber board election. After that
meeting, Lilly went on voluntary leave
while his wife, Kim Skidmore, quit her
position as the chamber employee in
charge of managing Main Street Starke.
During a special meeting called
Nov. 14, Lilly was officially placed
on administrative leave without
pay. A task force was appointed to
investigate matters surrounding Lilly's
employment. Their first report was
delivered at another board meeting last
week, and their recommendation was to
terminate Lilly's employment.
Chamber Board Chairman Dean
Weaver said if other members
had questions, he could point to
"questionable" transactions attributed
to Lilly during his tenure as president.
Weaver said he could verify three
occasions when Lilly paid himself twice
in the same pay period. He also said he
had documentation of a check written
to cash for $8,500 in chamber funds
that were deposited into the automated
teller machine formerly housed in the
chamber office. The ATM, however,
is personally owned by Skidmore, he
While he stopped short of calling
the deposit of chamber funds into the
-ATM illegal, .Weaver said it was not
appropriate. He said that to date there
is no indication that money had come
back to the chamber, nor have any of
the fees collected for public use of the
machine. The fees went into a non-
chamber account, Weaver said.
Concerns were also expressed about
the financial relationship between the
chamber and Main Street and the lack
of associated records.
Virgil Berry said that no one on the
board was excited about firing Lilly, but
it was a necessary action. He compared
the investigation to following up on
suspicions in a relationship.
"The more you dig, the more you
find," Berry said, adding that the move
was personally a difficult one. "It's very
difficult for rme and a lot of us sitting
around here because we have supported
Ron totally through a lot of things. It's a
pretty sad situation, but at this point we
don't really have any choice."
Lilly was not present at last week's
board meeting. After some question
as to whether or not he had been given
sufficient opportunity to address the
board's concerns,there was a unanimous
vote in favor of letting him go. Weaver
and others said Lilly was given an
opportunity to explain by several board
members but has not done so. Weaver
said there was also a process for Lilly
to respond to the board's action against
The move to fire Lilly was made
even though his annual employment
would have officially ended next month
anyway without a further extension
from the board.

Southside Elementary set for multiphase makeover
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
'The school board will soon
consider approving a master plan
for construction at Southside
Elementary that would replace
aging classrooms among other
important changes to the
It is a multiphase, multiyear
project developed by architect
Paul Stressing and a committee
that includes teachers and the
principal of the school. The result
of the collaboration, Stressing
said, is an ideal model for what
the Southside campus could look
like within 10 years.
According to.a review of
facilities conducted districtwide,
the oldest classroom buildings
on the Southside campus suffer
from aging infrastructure and
utility lines. The kitchen in the
cafeteria also has structural
problems, which means it will
eventually need to be replaced.
Also up for replacement is the
main administration building.
The school doesn't have a real
sense of entrance and there's the
potential changing that while
addressing the current traffic and
parking issues, Stressing said.
It also helps resolve the safety
issue posed by the current bus
entrance, which is located off a
curve in the highway.
The future traffic plan
contemplates having the city of
Starke close Stansbury Street
so a new loop could be created
for bus traffic. (The existing
loop would become part of the
physical education field as an
athletic track.) Bus traffic would
enter Stansbury via S.R. 100

Cossey first woman to chair Union County board
BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
This is the third term forDistrict
3 Union County Commissioner
As a county commissioner,
Cossey, 56, spearheaded a
cemetery maintenance project
utilizing inmate labor at a
minimum cost to taxpayers,
acquired grant and funding for
the construction of the Union
County Senior Center, (a project
Cossey said should be completed
by June of next year),and assisted
in designating Union County as
a fiscally constrained county,
resulting in an annual $1 million
allocation for the county.
Most notable of Cossey's
accomplishments is that she is
not only the first female to serve
as a commissioner since the
county was established in 1921,
she is also the commission's very
first female to chair the board.
"Chairman" is the title she will
retain; no sense making a fuss
over being called "chairperson"
Cossey has also served on
the Union County Farm Bureau
since 1989 and was also the first
female president of that board
since its establishment.
Cossey is well-known in
the county and was a visible
board member as the owner and
operator of the former Karen's
Kwik Stop from 1971-2006,
(now known as Stop and Go)I
when she gave it up to off&r
her more time for county board
involvement. Cossey now spends
her days-and night-dedicated
to the commission board and the
other various county boards on
which she holds a seat. She makes
herself available daily to the
public at the county commission
office, located at 15 N.E. First St.
in Lake Butler.
She is married to Paul Cossey,
who is employed at Gilman
Building Products,and'they have
Blanton, Ivey Blanton, Karol
Halle, Tim Cossey and Marnna
Gillis and 17 grandchildren.
Commissioner Morris Doblis,
appointed to the position of vice
chairman, is also well known
in the community. He, too,
ran a fuel station for 31 years
in Union County. He spent 24
years serving as a school board
member, 10 of which he served
as board chairman.
After retiring from the fuel
business in 2000, he ran for
District 2 county commissioner.
He is now in the midst of serving
his third term. He is married to
Ramona Dobbs and has two
daughters, Monette and Carmen,
and two grandchildren.
Karen Cossey now serves as chairman of the Union County Commission and Morris
Dobbs is vice chairman.
Sellars, Chandler, Lewis take oath in Bradford County
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Lila Sellars recited the oath
of office next to two Bradford
County Commission veterans,
Ross Chandler and Eddie
"Landslide" Lewis, who actually
won reelection earlier this month
by the skin of his teeth.
Sellars is replacing two-term
Commissioner John Cooper from
District 3, who let the position go
to focus on other areas.
Cooper appeared before
the commission last week to
express his appreciation and
say his goodbye's. He said it
was an honor to have served
for eight years. He thanked his
fellow commissioners and the
constitutional officers, including
Clerk Ray Norman and Sheriff
Bob Milner. for their work on
behalf of the county. He also
thanked two past commissioners,
Joe Riddick and HermanJohnson,
who taught him a lot.
Cooper congratulated Sellars
on winning the election. With
more than 20 million people
in the state and fewer than 400
county commissioners, he said it
was a special group to be a part of
with the ability to do great good.
Listen to the board, he advised,
because its members have been
around the block a time or two.
Times are tough around the
state economically, and Cooper
predicted the state would
continue to shift the cost of
services to local governments.
He encouraged the board to be
vigilant and resist that pressure.
He also advised the board to
stick to the budget and not make
"Use that budget as your
control mechanism," Cooper
Finally he thanked the citizens
of District 3 for allowing him to

every second of it," he said.

Speaking viaphoneon Monday,
Lilly said none of the allegations
brought up at last week's board
meeting had been discussed with
him personally. Even news that
he had been placed on unpaid
administrative leave came by
letter and without explanation,
he said. According to him, there
might be simple explanations for
things the board has questioned,
like being paid twice in the same
pay period. The chamber offices
closes at the end of December so
the final check of the year rolls
into the following pay period for
everyone, he said. But without
knowing the pay periods in
question, he couldn't comment
specifically on the instances
cited by Weaver.
Lilly did say there appeared
to be some misunderstanding
on the part of some chamber
board members about his role
as president and his spending
authority. The board sets the
budget, and the president has all
the authority he needs to make
expenditures that are within
the budget and do not exceed
budgetary spending limits.
Although he submits paperwork
for his paycheck the same as any

about how they ran the chamber

Lilly said. "But being accused

devastated" by the allegations
and that the past few weeks have
been stressful for both him and
his wife. The accusations have
blind sided him, he said. He was
only aware of one individual who
was unhappy after the October
meeting, he said. During that
meeting, new procedures were
established for voting and
counting ballots in the future. No
other questions were brought to
him at that time, he said.

Trinity football and cheerleading ends with awards

About 350 young football

Families and friends attended the

Baptist Church on Nov. 8, youth
pastor Jason Mole reported this

One game day last month, as
those \oung players ran up and
down the field and cheerleaders
cheered. Mole said registration
for the church's Upward football
and cheer program increased 45
percent in its second season.
He attributed this to several
organizational rules and
traditions. First, he said, each
child is given ample playing
time. With lots of substitutions,
coaches ensure that less-skilled
football players are not simply
left to warm the bench.
Mole also thought handing out
stars as awards after each game
day attracted young participants.

defense, another for best offense

There are lots of cheerleaders
to spur the players on; anyone
can join. Mole said the stress of
competition was downplayed
and a more relaxed atmosphere
greatly influenced the popularity
of the Trinity program.
Halftime shows consisted
of snacks and drinks with an
inspirational message by a church
volunteer. Parents, families and
visitors sat on lawn chairs around

Hendricks spray field lease with Lake Butler in jeopardy
BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Several months ago, Lake
Butler City Manager John
Berchtold updated the city
commission board about an on-
going situation with Hendricks
In 1999, the city entered into a
lease agreement with Hendricks
Turf allowing it to run a sod farm
on 300 acres of land approved by
the Department of Environmental
Protection to accept treated
wastewater for irrigation.
The initial lease agreement
was for five years and could be
renewed every five years, as it
was in 2004. In July of this year,
company President Stephanie
Hendricks Christmas wrote to the
city requesting another five-year
renewal of the lease agreement,
set to expire in March of 2009.
According to the lease
agreement, Hendricks has the
option of renewing provided
that no material default by them
exists or is unresolved at the time
they are seeking the renewal.
In a response letter to
Hendricks Turf, Berchtold wrote,
"the original agreement provides
for extensions if no material
defaults exist. At least during my
tenure, monthly payments have
not been received on a timely
basis. As of today, we have only
received three out of 10 monthly
Berchtold presented the
correspondence to the board in
August and notified Christmas
that the position of the city was
that, at the end of the lease, it
would continue the lease only on
a month-to-month basis.
This wasn't the first time
Hendricks had fallen behind in
its lease payments. In Aug. 2007,
Hendricks was behind by more
than $9,600 and was able to bring
the account current the following
month, at the close of the city's
2007 fiscal year.
However, at the end of the
city's fiscal year in September
2008, there remained a balance
of $8,580 in lease payments still
owed by Hendricks. Since that
time, and into yet another fiscal
year, Hendricks has been able to
make one month's payment.
"Here is our ethical challenge,"
Berchtold wrote. "We shut off
residential customers [for non-
payment], many of whom have
families. It remains unfair to treat
In October, the issue was tabled
by the city due to correspondence
from Christmas that they would
attempt to sell land in hopes to
provide some liquidity into their
"Assuming a positive result
occurs from the sale, we will be
able to bring the lease current,"
Christmas wrote. She appeared
before the board at its regular
November meeting with Stephen
Hendricks, who started the
business 21 years ago.
Putting things into perspective,
Christmas told the board that
in November 2005, they were
cutting 800 pallets a week off
the farm and even having sod
brought up from South Florida to
meet the demand.
"We now have only 50 pallets
to scheduled to cut and have
gone from a staff of over 40 to
currently six," she said.
Christmas also pointed out
that two of those six employees
are registered voters in the city of
Lake Butler and others employed
by Hendricks Turf during the past
10 years are also citizens of Lake
Butler and Union County.
She went on to say that
Hendricks pays more than a
fair market value for the annual
lease, maintains the facility at
no cost to the city, has proven
they are committed to a long-
term agreement, have provided
jobs for the community, and do
business with other vendors in
the community allowing them to
stay in business.
It was thought that the city and
Hendricks might be able to work
out a deal on the delinquent lease
payments with the Department of
Correction's plans to expand the
Reception and Medical Center to
add another work camp in 2009.
Hendricks owns 30 acres of land
adjacent to the existing spray
field and the city was considering
swapping the land for back lease
payments if the land is approved
The city began looking into
the possible need to expand the
wastewater plant to accommodate
the addition of 864 inmates at
RMC next year and another 1,272
in 2012 and held the assumption
they would need at least 90 more
acres to cover the growth.
Mayor Jimmy Beasley
suggested that Berchtold see if
he could work something out
with Hendricks instead of just
cutting them out completely.
Commissioner Fletcher Myers
asked if the sod company was
now making regular monthly
payments,and Stephen Hendricks
replied, "No, we really need to
wait until March."
"You don't plan to be making
payments after this?" Myers
"I brought a check in the
other day for one payment and I
would love to say that we could,
but right now we want to get
through this winter. Every dime
we can hold on to, we need to,"
Commissioner Scott Cason
told Hendricks and Christmas
that he wished they would have
come forward earlier about the
matter. Christmas apologized
and said that six months ago,
they weren't sure if they could
turn things around.
"I had some land. ... We bit
the bullet on that land and got
the commitment from the bank
to continue to work with us,"
Hendricks stated that they had
made major efforts in treating
Lake Butler the same as the
city of Starke, with whom they
also lease a spray field for sod
Hendricks said that he asked
Starke for an extension last month
until March and Starke agreed to
it. Hendricks provided the city
of Starke with a promissory note
for all payments up until March.
At that time, they are to make
all the back payments and begin
keeping the lease current.
Cason asked, "So you're in a
bind with them, too? If our lease
isn't there, what are we going to
Berchtold said the city has a
few options. One would be to
seek another provider for the sod
farm.Another option would be to
discontinue the sod part and see
if somebody wants to use it for
hay. Thirdly, the city could just
let the land go and keep it cut.
Whatever the final decision, the
city's treated wastewater must be
sprayed onto the field.
City Attorney John Maines
offered that the city could
continue to do business with
Hendricks Turf on a month-to-
month basis instead of renewing
the long-term contract.
"At some point, we need to firm
these leases up," Hendricks said.
"Hardy Clyatt can maybe 'amen'
me here, but I worked under the
assumption of you scratch my
back, I scratch yours and that's
the reason we work together
hard. I understand you need to
collect the lease payment. I need
you to work through this bad
time with us and we'll continue
to put in the effort we have the
past 10 years," Hendricks said.
He further asked the board to
refer the matter back to the city
manager who continues to treat
Since the last commission
meeting, Berchtold discovered
through engineering reports
that the wastewater facility was
designed in 1995 to allow for
"It can accommodate 1.1
million gallons of water per day,
and, at present, is only pumping
700,000 gallons a day, meaning
we would not necessarily need to
expand right now," he said.
Either way, since bouncing that
idea around, Bailey Barefoot,
with DOC in Tallahassee,
contacted Berchtold to say DOC
will not follow through with
construction of the work camp
facility next year. Any research
into expanding the wastewater
plant is now halted by the city,
although preliminary expansion
costs were estimated to be
between $6.3 million and $10.1
It is not clear whether DOC's
decision not to build the work
camp was only temporary. Also
not clear is whether or not DOC
will still move forward with
its plans to add a full annex for
1,272 more inmates in 2012.
The matter is expected to be
brought before the board at its

Starke soon paying for more residential sewer connections
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
The city of Starke is advertising
the opportunity to apply for sewer
connections and have the cost
covered by $200,000 the city has
received in state funding.
It should be noted that
submitting an application does
not guarantee selection, but
those who do make the cut could
have as much as $5,000 worth of
sewer connection and septic tank
abandonment work performed at
It's up to the city commission
to decide the criteria for which
applications will be funded.
Chief among the considerations
is the income of the household.
Although not under the same
income restrictions as when
it conducted the Community
Development Block Grant portion
of its sewer project, the city will
use the same income benchmarks
as a guide to determine who will
most benefit from the available
For a family of four, the upper
threshold would be an annual
income of $38,800. That doesn't
mean a four-person household
making more money should not
submit an application. If there are
fewer than expected applications,
there is the possibility that those
who exceed maximum income
requirements may receive
funding under the project as
There are three set
requirements that all applicants
must meet. You must own (or be
buying) the home that will be
connected to the sewer system.
This means you will not qualify
if you are renting your residence.
Landlords may not apply either
since the home must be the
applicant's primary.address, not
a rental property, vacation home,
etc. Finally, the applicant must be
current on all utility fees owed to
the city. Those who owe the city
money for utilities are not eligible
to apply for a sewer connection.
Elderly and handicapped
residents will also likely receive
greater consideration. Those
with a failing septic system may
also receive preference.
There are also practical
considerations for the city,
however, like stretching
the money as far as it will
go. For that reason, terribly
Maximum income limits based on
1 person $27,150
2 people $31,050
3 people $34,900
4 people $38,800
5 people $41,900
6 people $45,000
7 people $48,100
8 people $51,200
*Those who exceed these limits
may also be eligible depending on
the size of the application pool.
costly connections will not be
undertaken. A cost analysis will
be performed for each application
submitted. Projects that only
require septic tank abandonment
and connection to an existing
sewer line are more likely to be
funded than those that require
more extensive work.
Generally, the affordable
projects will be those within
200 feet of an existing sewer line
that don't require grinder pumps
or other additions to ensure a

reliable sewer tie-in. Depending
on the number of applications
submitted and the cost of the
projects undertaken, the city
may be able to prorate the cost
of some more expensive projects,
however, if the homeowner is
willing to contribute to the cost
of completing the connection.
Spooner also wanted priority to
be given to those living within
the prior CDBG project area, but
other commissioners shot down
a $1,000 sponsorship, businesses

that idea. Even those who felt
there are few in need of sewer
connections in their district who
would meet the low-income
requirements still feltapplications
from all over the city should be
given equal weight.
In short, there's no way to tell
which homeowners will qualify
for paid sewer connections until
the application cycle is complete
and the city has evaluated all
of the applications received.
The best thing to do if you're
interested in sewer service is to
apply for a connection, then wait

hall by Dec. 23. Those who

monthly charge for that service
as part of their overall utility
The city received permission
from the state to put together its
connection program using the
money, which was originally
awarded to help pay for upgrades
at the sewer treatment plant. Scott
Modesitt of Summit Professional
Services, the city's grant writer,
will administer the program.
The city is still planning
upgrades to the sewer treatment
plant that will change the way
the city deals with wastewater.
BCR Environmental's Bio-Chem
Neutralizer treats wastewater
and produces a higher class of
biosolids than is produced-by the
existing wastewater treatment
process. The odor-free biosolids
are pathogen free and can be
used as fertilizer locally on land
such as that leased by the city to
the Hendricks sod farm.
That advantage means the
city can avoid spending tens of
thousands of dollars each year on
having its sewage transported for
disposal in a qualified landfill,
and the system affords additional
savings through reduced utility
and labor costs.
The last quote to purchase and
install the Bio-Chem system was
around $1.77 million.The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection is providing to pay for
the upgrades at the treatment plant
that will be available next year.
Until then, the city is pursuing
a low-interest loan from the
Florida Rural Water Association
to pay for the project.
O'Neals are YMCA's
Volunteers of the Years
Each year the North Central Florida YMCA recognizes
Volunteers of the Year from each branch for exemplary
service to the Y in their community. For 2008, our
Bradford-Union branch honored Darrell and Susan
O'Neal as Volunteers of the Year at the annual meeting
at the Southwest YMCA in Gainesville. The O'Neals have
supported the YMCA In Bradford and Union counties
since its inception. While serving as president of the
board of directors in the past year, Darrell has brought
with him a host of new friends and resources as well
as a sense of solidarity at the local Y. Susan headed up
two large yard sale projects last spring that supported
the annual Strong Kids Campaign. The O'Neals were
also instrumental in the purchase of our new building
in Starke, which allows YMCA to serve more members.
Past volunteers recognized include Patti and Don Priest,

Winter formal open to
all high school students
BY KATI TEDDER
Telegraph Staff Writer
In an effort to provide fun
activities in Starke for Bradford
students, local businesses
connected with Main Street
Starke are stepping up to host
a Winter Formal on Friday,
Dec. 12, at the Charlie E. Johns
Conference Center. The dance
is not limited to only Bradford
students, but to any high school
student who wishes to attend
with their dates. (Dates must be
between the ages of 14-20.)
The dance will start at 7 p.m.
and last until 11 p.m. Tickets may
be purchased at the door for $20
or paid for in.advance for $15
before Dec. 8. Advanced tickets
can be bought at Julia's Florist,
Scorpio's Day Spa, the chamber
of commerce, Say I Do Bridal
or from Lisa Tatum at Bradford
"The high school doesn't
sponsor dances so we thought
it would be something fun for
the students," Tatum said. "The
money made will go to provide
quarterly maps of Starke with
events listed for that time period
including the Bradford County
Fair or car washes that the clubs
at BHS have."
If the dance is a success, Main
Street Starke hopes to sponsor
one again next year and expand
to include dinner or something
Pictures will be taken by
Thornton Photography from
5-9 p.m., with packages starting
as low at $25. The disc jockey
for the dance will be Boogie
Knights. Throughout the night,
door prizes will be awarded like
gift certificates to local business
and restaurants, including
Scorpio's, Sonny's and Mary Kay
Cosmetics, and a Visa gift card.
Local businesses will be
offering discounts for those
attending the dance; Julia's
Florist is offering 10 percent off
any purchase toward attending
the Winter Formal good on
flowers or tuxedoes. Restaurants
including the Strawberry Tea
Room, Cedar River Seafood and
Western Steer are also offering
specials and discounts.
"We're glad to be able to do
something for our young people
and set the example for when
they grow up and become the

Tigers cap season with 42-20 bowl win over Baldwin
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Chris Alexander completed
16-of-24 passes with four
touchdowns to help the Union
County football team close out
its season with a 42-20 win
over host Baldwin in a bowl
game on Nov. 20.

with 375 yards and completed

"We did a good job of
spreading it around, and our
guys made plays for us,"
Union head coach Andrew
Zow said. "That's what we say
we always want to do, get the
ball to our playmakers and
make sure they make yards
after the catch."
Indeed, they did. Deven
Perry and Najeeb Smith, in
particular, proved to be elusive
with the ball in their hands.
Perry caught four passes for
153 yards, while Smith had
three receptions for 86 yards.
Each scored a touchdown in
the second quarter to help the
Tigers (8-3) overcome a shaky
Baldwin was visibly fired up
at the start of the game, taking
the opening kickoff and
marching 65 yards for a
touchdown. The Indians (6-5)
ran the ball nine times on the
10-play drive, doing most of
their damage with traps up the
"They played a whole lot
better than what they looked
like on film," Zow said.
The Tigers were poised to
answer, with Bryan Holmes
gaining 34 yards on a
reception to the Baldwin 29.
An I1-yard reception by
Shamari Holland and a 9-yard
run by Smith moved Union
inside the 10, but Alexander

Baldwin would retake the
lead when a mishandled snap
on a punt attempt set the
Indians up at the Union 3. A 1-
yard touchdown run put the
Indians up 13-7, but Union's
Nevin Johns blocked the PAT.
The Tigers, who were held
to 68 yards in the first quarter,
seemed to wake up after that,
nearly tripling their offensive
output in the first quarter.
Alexander completed 8-of-10
passes in the second quarter
for 220 yards and three
touchdowns to help the Tigers
go into the locker room at the
half up 28-13.
"It was tough at the
beginning," Zow said.
"You've just got to tip your hat
to Baldwin, but also tip your
hat to our guys. Our guys
stayed strong, stayed at it and
did a heck of a job."
After Baldwin's second
score, the Tigers picked up a
couple of first downs, but
found themselves facing a
third-and-16 play. Alexander
scrambled for 14 yards, while
a 17-yard run by Perry
converted the ensuing fourth-
down play, giving the Tigers a
first down at the Baldwin 20.

defensively in the second
quarter, limiting the Indians to
28 yards. Baldwin was forced
to go three-and-out on the

Mims into an incompletion on
The Tigers wasted little time
scoring their third touchdown.
Two plays were all they
needed to cover 80 yards.
Smith had a 15-yard reception
before Perry took a short pass
and weaved his way into the
open field to complete a 65-
yard touchdown play.
On the ensuing kickoff,
Union kept up its practice of
kicking short and keeping the
ball on the ground. It paid off
when Baldwin was unable to
field the ball. Ellis recovered
for Union at the Baldwin 40.
That set up a three-play
scoring drive that was capped
by a 32-yard touchdown
reception by Smith. Jernigan's
PAT put the Tigers up 28-13
with 4:14 to play in the first
Baldwin went three-and-out
again, but got the ball back
with approximately 1:30 left in
the half after a Union fumble.
The Indians picked up a first
down on a 17-yard run, but
then gained no yards on the
next two plays after tackles by
Gosha and Dustin Floyd.
The Tigers had their chances
to increase their lead in the
third quarter, but twice turned
the ball over on downs inside
the Baldwin 20. Baldwin,
which had one promising drive
thwarted by an interception by
Union's SJ. Simmons, cut into
the Tigers' lead on a 36-yard
touchdown reception by
Tyrone Jones on the first play
of the fourth quarter. The PAT
made it a 28-20 game.
The home team seemingly
had momentum, especially
when a couple of penalties on
the ensuing kickoff had the
Union offense backed up at its
own 2-yard line. The Tigers,
though, responded by driving
98 yards for a score. The first
key play of the drive was on
fourth-and-inches at the Union
12. Zow had his offense line
up as if to go for the first. The
plan, though, was for

Bushey likes to call gourmet
pizza. The dough, which is
made from scratch daily, is
what really stands out about
the pizzas, he said.
"It's a little sweeter than
most doughs," Bushey said. "I
use honey and molasses to
activate the yeast more than
the raw sugar. It's a little bit
healthier for you."
Bushey has also added a
selection of sandwiches, salads
and new and improved wings
to the menu and now offers an
all-you-can-eat lunch buffet.
The trick now is to get
people to come and try the
food. Some people may have
had negative experiences at the
restaurant in the past, but
Bushey has worked hard to
create a different atmosphere,
making changes ranging from
the menu, as mentioned
previously, to servers'
uniforms. He wants to
entertain customers in a safe

unique and great-tasting food.

not to renew his franchise and

eye toward expanding the

would like to bring in some

This RaceWay convenience store/gas station recently opened for business in
Waldo and old Bellamy
Road: a shared heritage
BY BUSTER RAHN
Special to the Telegraph
Thirty thousand vehicles
pass through Waldo on U.S.
301 each day and until
recently. Few people saw a
reason to stop because the
town had little to offer
motorists, but in 1993,
Hardee's saw the potential for
business, established an outlet
and, to all appearances, has
For more than 12 years,
Hardee's was the only
nationally known fast-food
restaurant between Starke and
Ocala, but that situation
changed as business interests
recognized Waldo's location
provided excellent business
opportunities on a major
thoroughfare with limited
competition and reasonable
prices for real estate.
Within the Waldo city
limits-north of the railroad
opened an outlet, three major
gas stations and convenience
stores have built large facilities
on the highway and a hotel is
under construction. A sports
complex catering to off-road
bike riding is operational, with
'new bike facilities under way
Mud-boggi ta4ci4es f
under construction, offering
recreational opportunities for
the young and the young at
The widely known Waldo
Flea Market and the Waldo
Antique Shops have been
located on either side of U.S.
301, at the north end of town,
for 40 years or more. The new
development has barely
scratched the surface for
potential building area. There
remain thousands of feet of
highway frontage within 'the
city limits on the north side of
While this construction has
been going on north of the
railroad overpass, south of the
structure has been sitting idle,
mostly zoned residential.
Clearly this property is under-
developed and awaiting
commercial interests for
increasing the tax base of the
town. Waldo has been a
sleeper for the past several
decades, but change has
already begun in the
commercial area and promises
to continue as population
growth moves into this region.
Waldo has a population
fewer than a thousand with
neither an agriculture nor a
manufacturing base to provide
jobs. Located only 14 miles
from Gainesville, it is a
bedroom community providing
workers for educational
facilities, criminal justice and
medical facilities and other
entities that require workers.
Its homes reflect middle-
income, middle-class residents
living in a town with few
natural resources other than
Lake Alto on its eastern
border. While Lake Alto is a
fine fishing and'boating lake, it
is surrounded by swampland,
development. Individuals own
some lakefront property on the
south end of the lake, but
Florida Forever, a conservation
group, and large timber owners
hold title to most of the
Waldo has a fine two-story
school building that once
housed Waldo High School,
but is now used for an
elementary school through the
fifth grade. Students from
grades six through high school
are bussed either to Hawthorne
or Gainesville, dependent upon
the student's option. Santa Fe
College has classrooms in both
Gainesville and Starke,
available to Waldo students.
Waldo has a six-man police
department, known to many
for its vigilance in maintaining
traffic laws through the town.
While the state sets speed
limits, Waldo police are often
denigrated for ticketing
speeders. Residents point out
that traffic crashes are virtually
unknown in Waldo, and
fatalities are non-existent, and
they would like to keep it that
The town maintains a full-
time fire department with six
full-time firemen and three or
more volunteers. The station is
manned around the clock,
seven days a week.
The city council is
composed of a mayor, a city
manager and five council
members with a complement
of workers to invoice residents
for water, sewage and garbage
collection. Like other area
towns, Waldo contracted with
Waste Management for
garbage collection, but
switched to Emerald Garbage
Collection when Waste
Management withdrew from
the area. Waldo garbage is
hauled to the collection station
on S.R. 24 near Fairbanks,
[ thi r Pi rrw qi k: jiiii-
tractors an trailers for transfer
to the Tri-County Landfill on
S.R. 121 near Raiford in Union
County. Waldo charges
residential customers $16 per
month for garbage collection.
Waldo converted an old
store building in the center of
town for its city hall/police
department. While not a show
place, it is utilitarian,
accessible to the public, and
serves well the purpose for
which it is being used. City
commission meetings and
.other group meetings are held
a few blocks away in a former
Episcopal church building, no
longer in use for religious
services. An adjacent building
owned by the city, is used for a
library. Other property owned
by the city includes the fire
department and three city
parks, one of which, the
Veteran's Memorial Park, was
constructed by volunteers.
Other parks on the east side of
town are maintained for
softball and other games.
The history of Waldo is
shared by many other
communities, towns and cities
throughout north Florida and
have a common basis: they
were established adjacent to
Bellamy Road, which ran from
St. Augustine to Pensacola.
While history records St.
Augustine as being the -oldest
city in the nation continuously
occupied since 1565,
Pensacola lays claim to an
even older occupation.
In 1559, a large contingent
of ships from Mexico City
landed 1,400 colonists on the
shore of Escambia Bay to
establish a colony on the site,
but within a few weeks a
hurricane destroyed many of
tl- ships and killed hundreds
of the personnel. The
remaining people returned to
the ships and proceeded to
Parris Island, S.C., with
intentions of establishing a
colony there. A second
hurricane struck the would-be
colonists, destroying Spain's
attempt at establishing a
colony at that time. However,
Spain did not give up. It
established a permanent
colony at Pensacola in 1696.
Florida became a territory of
the fledgling United States
when Spain ceded Florida to
the young nation in 1821
(Florida attaineflsStatthood in
1845).,- St ''Atiugtiinc and'
Pensacola, 450 miles apart,
became military outposts
without means of
communication or exchanging
supplies other than wind-
driven ships making the long
trip through the Florida
Straits-a long and dangerous
journey. Couriers riding horses
could make the trip quicker,
but were limited in the amount
of supplies a horse could carry.
In 1823, Congress awarded
John Bellamy a contract to
construct a road between the
two military posts, 16 feet

the Bradford County Public
Library and the fact that if you
go to the library on the
evenings when they stay open
late, it is so dark even the

afraid when they walk out to

the only time working people

I usually end up going on
Monday evenings and this past
Monday, after I complained
about the lighting problems,
the ladies said that the lights
are not turned on due to
complaints from the residents
across the street. When I left, I
counted that 20 lights, sitting
atop beautiful light poles, that
were not on.
My question is, No. 1, if this
is a problem, why was the
library built there? And No. 2,
why are the lights in the Santa
Fe annex parking lot turned on
and not at the library?
I was quite leery myself
about someone snatching my
purse, or worse. I think the
county is leaving themselves
wide open for a lawsuit when
'something does happen in this
dark parking lot.

not very kind or nice of me
and very un-(hristian acting of
me to put her off that way,
when she had been so
respectful and kind and trying
to do her Christian duty to help
me. I am an 81-year-old man
and I have never had a young
person of any color be as
respectful and kind as she was
to me. I just wanted her to
know that I think she must be
"one in a million" and that she
must be that way because of
the way she was raised and the
training she got from her
parents or a grandmother or
someone who raised her. You
do not see many young people
that way today because they
are not trained like that at
That girl was raised as a
Christian and to be kind and
helpful to others. She has the
kind of attitude that she could

treated each other with respect.
and kindness like that young
lady did me, it would be a lot
better place to live. As God's
holy word says, "Do unto
others as you would have them
do unto you."
I want to thank you, young
lady, and thanks to your
parents or whoever raised you.

The Shirley Ann Brown
Scholarship is named in honor
of a Bradford County native
who died of breast cancer in
2004. Livingstone was the
daughter of Willie Brown and
the late Louiza Brown of
Starke. She graduated from
Bradford High School in 1966
and went on to graduate from
the University Of Florida
school of nursing. Livingstone
was a registered nurse for
more than 30 years.
Livinstone knew the
importance of a good
education and recognized the
difficulty many students have
in obtaining financial
assistance for higher
education. She wanted every
student to be able to pursue his
or her dreams. Livingstone
knew that students who were
able to pursue careers in health
care would some day be able
to come up with a cure for
breast cancer and other
diseases. Also, Livingstone
believed that the care of those
who were ill was an important
role and responsibility.
The scholarship named in
her honor is available to any
student pursuing a career in a
health care field such as
nursing, or medicine and is
particularly for those who
enter fields to eradicate cancer
and other devastating diseases.

Bellamy began the road at
Picolata on the west bank of
the St. Johns, taking a
southerly route passing south
of Lake Santa Fe through
Melrose. From Melrose. the
road turned in a northerly
direction, passing through
Ne\\ nansville (near the present
cit\ of Alachua), crossing the
natural bridge where the Santa
Fe River goes underground,
north of Lake City and
-continuing west to Pensacola.
While Bellamy constructed
.only sections of the road, the
road became known as
Bellamy Road. The serpentine
road is 455 miles long.
\.'hen Bellamy Road was
buih, Florida was virtually
uninhabited, particularly south
of a line running east to west,
between St. Augustine and
Tallahassee, and Indians
roamed freely throughout the
peninsular. Men and women
entering Florida prior to the
building of Bellamy Road
were adventurers and pioneers
Some came to settle land
claims for farming, but others
came because it represented
the frontier in a temperate
The vast majority of
immigrants came into north
Florida from Georgia and
South Carolina, where cotton
was king and available land
ala- M srT for ,iiS"m,
states, and plantation life with
vast acreage farms were passed
by inheritance to succeeding
generations. Young families
without access to inherited
land found tough going in
getting started in farming, but
emigrating to north Florida
provided an option with land
available for the taking.
After Bellamy Road was
completed in 1826, early
arrivals naturally settled near
the road and later arrivals had
to look farther afield for land.
It was in this era that
communities such as Melrose
and Waldo began to spring up.
Outside north Florida,
events that would change the
course of history were shaping
up. The invention of the steam
engine made steamboats and
railroads possible. By 1850,

canal connecting Lake Santa
Fe with Lake Alto that was
wide and deep enough to
accommodate small steam
boats that ferried fruit and
passengers between Melrose
and Waldo. Commercial traffic
on the canal declined around
1920, but use of the canal for
pleasure craft continued until
recent years. It is now owned
by Alachua County, but not
maintained. Canoes and light
boats may be able to navigate
the canal, but clearing and
dredging is needed if fishing
boats are to be accommodated.
Waldo is currently negotiating
with Alachua County to gain
possession of the canal in
hopes of adding it to the
"Alachua Blue Way" for
Use of the canal for ferrying
citrus fruit to the railhead at
Waldo was short lived. Florida
suffered two freezes-one
Dec. 29, 1894, and another
five weeks later on Feb. 7,
1895-the second of which
killed citrus trees throughout
north Florida and ended
commercial citrus growing.
Towns such as Melrose,
Waldo and Evinston (near
Orange Lake) became ghost
towns as citrus grove owners
abandoned homes and property
and returned to their former
homes up north.
Waldo became a named
community where the railroad
crossed Bellamy Road, with an
established post office in 1858.
Prior to getting their own post
office, area people were served
by a postal unit at Fort Harley,
a military post on the Santa Fe
River just north of Waldo. A
municipal government ..was-,
-f6ired by local "'side'~nl
1876. The town was
incorporated Aug. 1, 1907.
City manager Kim Worley
Look at a day when you are supremely
satisfied at the end. It's not a day when
you lounge around doing nothing; it's
when you've had everything to do, and
you've done It.

Stateswoman, Prime Minister (1979-90).

has lived in Waldo 22 years
and has worked for the city
approximately eight years--
five years as city manager.
Worley knows the town and its
people and enjoys living in the
community. She likes the
small-town atmosphere and
wants the town to prosper, but
does not necessarily want it to
get much larger. When asked
about the town's needs,
immediately that the town's
sewer system is maxed out and
money must be found for
updating and enlarging the
system. The new business
buildings on U.S. 301 have
added to the system's load and
further construction will pose
What does the future hold
for Waldo? Look first at the
small towns on U.S. 301
between Ocala and Macclenny,
Citra, Island Grove,
Hawthorne, Orange Heights,
Waldo, Starke, and Lawtcy.
The towns have remained
largely unchanged for decades
except for some highway
changes in Waldo and Starke.
U.S. 301 now has four lanes,
replacing the two-lane roads
carrying traffic prior to 1960.
A dangerous right angle turn
on the south end of Waldo was
bypassed and the overpass was
built over the CSX railroad on
which speeding trains ran,
improving safety and moving
traffic expeditiously through
In Starke, U.S. 301 was
widened and street parking
discontinued. The two right-
angle turns on and off Call
Street were bypassed, easing
congestion through the city
with two highways-S.R. 16
and S.R. 100-crossing the
busy north-south highway.
For whatever reason, the
booming population of II orida
hasn't done a great deal f( >r the
towns along the major I orth-
south highway in north-ci~ntral
Florida, and growth has been
slow. Starke and Waldo, with
new commercial building s on
U.S. 301, seem to be
awakening to growth, but
population numbers re main
stubbornly constant. The area,
with a major univ( ersity
centrally located and two
community colleges, pro vides
educational opportuI cities
rarely equaled and i ever
surpassed elsewhere. A bout
equidistant from either co. ast, it
is the safest area in the st; ife in
regards to hurricanes, with
beaches and saltwater fi shing
within easy driving dist ance.
Residents and visitors cai feel
the changing seasons th itt are
usually pleasant except in the
hottest months. All forrns of
transportation are rn adily
available, so why hasn't the
area enjoyed the growth seen
in other sections of the st Ate?
Waldo is in an enviable
position, being located near
Gainesville, and its future lies
in improving infrastructure to
attract people who like sr naller
communities near their jobs in
metropolitan comm ercial
communities. When the: real
estate market return s to
normal, developers should take
a new look at Wald o for
building homes. While
Gainesville has been looking
westward for the past several
years, the investment by' Wal-
Mart sends a new sign.a l that
east Gainesville has been
neglected far too long;, and
there's money to be made in
developing the low-cost 'vacant
land on S.R. 24, especially in
Waldo, where city se,-vices,
including fire and police
protection, are available.

CFAC would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to anyone who felt they were not treated in
this manner, or felt they didn't receive the quality for which they paid.

During tough economic times, that everyone is now facing, now is the time for everyone to come together and
help one another through these difficult times. For instance, one way CFAC, Inc. can help your situation is to

All you need to do is call between December 01, 2008 and December 05, 2008 to lock in a date for one of our
