BCSO staff member


jailed for sexual abuse


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Bradford County sheriff's
employees were shocked when
one of their own came forward
last week and confessed to a
nearly decade-long sexual
relationship with a child.
Howard Walter Austin, 46,
was arrested March 14 and
charged with sexual battery on
a person less than 12 years of
age.
Austin, who was responsible
for information technology in
the sheriff's office, contacted
Detective Kevin Mdieller
around 3:30- p.m:-on. Saturday
and asked to speak to him
in person. Mueller drove to
Austin's residence where the
defendant confessed to having
a sexual relationship with a
juvenile.


According to Cpt. Brad
Smith, public information
officer for the sheriff's office,
Austin was taken into custody
and transported to the sheriff's
office where his confession was
recorded on videotape.
Austin was booked in to the
county jail but transferred to an
undisclosed facility for security
purposes, Cpt. Smith said.
Cpt. Smith, confirmed that
Austin's confession came: as
a result of the victim's. plan
to come forward. The abuse
went on for approximately
eight years, beginning when the
victim was just 7 years old.
Sheriff- Gordon Smith
terminated Austin's
employment immediately upon
learning of the arrest.

Juvenile arrested for

string of local thefts


BY TERESA STONE

Times Staff Writer
Jamall Lamar Edwards, 15,
has been named by the Union
County Sheriff's Office as
admitting to theft from two
Lake Butler businesses last
year as well as last December's
break-in at the Union County
High School agriculture
department building and the
theft of the department's
truck.
SSo far, Edwards, of Lake
Butler, has been charged with
four felony counts to include
burglary, grand theft auto,
dealing in stolen property and
intimidating a witness, as well
as one misdemeanor count of
resisting an officer.
On July 19, 2008, a jar
containing approximately
$250 in cash was stolen' from
the Union County Public
Library. Deputy James Crews
stated that Edwards admitted
to gaining access to the library
by breaking in a window and
taking the cash meant for the
library's building fund.
Crews said Edwards also


admitted to the Sept. 11,
theft of two T-shirts and
$50 in change stolen from
Kirby Laser and Needle after
throwing a rock through the
storefront window.
Crews said that Edwards
admitted to these two thefts
after he was arrested and later
questioned for breaking into
the high school agriculture
department building, stealing
two laptop computers and the
department's pick-up truck on
Dec. 26.
One, of the stolen laptop
computers was recovered in
February this year after Crews
said another person brought an
ACER brand laptop computer
to him, believing it may have
been stolen. In his report,
Crews stated that an ACER
laptop and an older model Dell'
laptop were reported stolen
from the agriculture building
the same night the department's
pickup truck was stolen.
Crews examined the recovered
laptop for fingerprints and
matched the serial number of
one of the stolen computers.

in this manner," Sheriff Smith

BY TERESA STONE-

Times Staff' Writer
On behalf of the city of
Lake Butler, City Manager
John Berchtold filed an
appeal in December of 2008,
to challenge the adverse
decision by USDA that the
city must repay $93,600 in
Rural Business Enterprise
Grant (RBEG) funds. The
repayment of RBEG funds
stems from a 2007 renovation
grant the city received for
the Little Rainbows Day Care
building.
On March 2, the hearing
officer for the appeal, J. Keith
Essmyer Jr., released the
following findings of fact in
his decision:
In July 2000, the city of
Lake Butler received title to a
warehouse complex located at
255 SE 6 Ave. The property
owner, Merrill Lynch, gave
the city title to the property
free and clear-including
$27,000 in unpaid property
taxes.
According to Richard Tillis,
who was the city manager
in 2000, the tax rolls listed
several other parcels of land
in the same vicinity also
held .-by the former owners.
He was successful in getting
the attorneys assigned by
the court to liquidate all of
Merrill Lynch's assets to-deed
over those additional three
properties to the city as well.
In August 2003, the city
leased the warehouse complex
to a suit manufacturer for a
two-year period. Tillis said he
believes the city gained about
$104,000 from that lease
agreement.
In the meantime, the city
made good use of the other
properties received. The
Eastside Park playground
and recreational area was
built on one parcel of land
and two other parcels were
sold for $7,500 and $2,500.
,,Following a one-year lease,
another smaller building was.
sold for $73,000 and a small
portion of the concrete slab
sold for $10,000. Recently,


another section of that lot was
awarded to the highest bidder
for $26,000.
After the suit manufacturer
relocated, Little Rainbows
then became the warehouse
building's next tenant, leasing
the space for two years for
a gain of about $73,000.
Under the terms of the May
2005 lease, the daycare had
the option to purchase the
building, within the first two
years of the lease.
According to transcripts
from the hearing, Tillis said
that Kim Bailey, owner of
Little Rainbows, contacted
him early during the lease
period about the possibility
of obtaining grant funds to
add new classrooms and a
kitchen/dining area to the
building.
Tillis applied for RBEG
funds to undertake the
classroom renovation project,
and in April 2006, he received
a letter of conditions from
Rural Development for a
$106,500 grant.
The closing on the grant
agreement did not take place
until more than a year later,
in July 2007-two months
after the date the city gave
Little Rainbows to exercise
their option to purchase
the building. Because the
grant process and resulting
construction was in progress,
Tillis said Bailey requested
an -extension and a short
extension was granted.
The hearing transcripts
stated that Tillis had extended
the daycare's option to buy
beyond the original lease
agreement, without notifying
Rural Development that he
had done so. Tillis disputes
this assertion.
He stated emphatically that
the city never hid the fact
or made it secret that it was
the city's intention to sell the
building, even telling USDA
officials that it was not the
city's intent to be in the real
estate business.
"We simply wanted the
vacant property occupied
and back on the tax rolls,"
See GRANT, p. 12A


Library project progresses


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
In case you haven't taken
a ride by the location where
the new public library is being
built, you should. know things
have been moving along quite
rapidly. The contractor, Richard
Tillis, owner of ROTC Inc.,
said. that although the library
project is running about three to
four weeks behind, there's a lot
of activity taking place as they
approach the May completion
date.
What has put the library a
few weeks behind schedule
is actually saving the county
thousands of dollars.
I "We are at the stage of
construction where inmate
laborers are being used for
certain tasks to save money,
only you can't always get what
you want when you need it,"
Tillis said.
For example, Tillis had two
sheetrock finishers steadily
working at the library, but could
have really used four. When the
exterior brickwork began, he
had only one mason, but now
he has four.
"Obviously, we can get things
accomplished quicker if we
have more workers available,


but we are just grateful to RMC
for the use of the laborers,",
Tillis said.
Over the next five to six
weeks, Tillis said, all the sub-
contractors will be back in doing
their finish work. This week,
the electricians are installing
the lighting, the metal roofing
is being completed, cabinets
are being installed and the
door company just installed the
automatic glass parting doors
for the front entranceway.
Right now, the library inmate
work crew is busy modifying a
hugeamountof 10-footshelving
donated to the library by the
University of Florida. Tillis
said besides a little dust from
being stored, the .shelving is in
relatively good shape and the
workers are pressure washing,
painting and -modifying them
for installation.
After the finish work is
completed (i.e. cabinetry,
plumbing, electrical, etc.) the
laborers will be able to return
to the library site and install the
shelving.
Tillis said expenses to
date on the library amount to
$510,000 and another $339,000
is still projected to complete the
project for a total construction
cost of $849,000. The county
received a $500,000 grant to


build the library. The land
purchase and architectural
work were not included as part
of the grant. The additional
costs over the grant amount are
supposed to be offset by the
sale of the library's existing
building, numerous fundraisers
and the use of inmate labor
where actual labor costs were
budgeted. Library Director
Mary Brown gave Wednesday,
July 1, as the grand opening
date for the new library.

A quick walk
through the new
library building
As you enter the library
through the main. automatic
glass sliding doors, there is a
foyer area that contains public
restrooms. Another'set of slider
doors opens to the main library'
and front desk/check-in area.
When entering the library, the
area to the immediate left will
display a huge hand-painted
wall mural, one of the library's
biggest fundraisers. This area
will also be the main computer
area -with eight Internet
connected computers. Past this
station is the large children's
area, nearly three times as large
as that of the existing library.

Has DOT found Mullins Grade solution?


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Just about everyone has had a
reason to complain about plans to
pave and redirect Southeast 1441h
Avenue, also known as Mullins
Grade, sending representatives
from the Florida Department
of Transportation back to the
drawing board several times.
First, residents weren't happy
with a plan to take the road
through Lincoln City. Then
city and county commissioners
jointly opposed an unsignalized
intersection with 301 a little
further to the north. When DOT
reconsidered and decided a
traffic light could be put at the
intersection with a couple of
other adjustments, businesses
opposed removing the light at
Deerfoot shopping center and
closing the medians there and at
Steel Mill Road.
Though it's unlikely any design
'will be able to please everyone,
DOT is getting ready to come
back to the county with a plan
they hope will address most of
the concerns expressed.
County Manager Brad Carter
met with DOT recently and
- said the plan involves building
the road so that Mullins Grade
intersects with 301 at the existing
signalized intersection at the
Deerfoot Shopping Center.
I f that's the case, the plan


should please commissioners
who insisted on a traffic light,
businesses who wanted the
intersection to remain open and
residents who don't want the new
,road in their neighborhood.
The timeline for part of the
project may also be moved up. .
Carter said DOT wants to
attend the county commission
meeting von April 6 to further
discuss the plan. That is the
commission's morning meeting,
which takes place at 9:30 a.m.

Money
scheduled for
bypass project
DOT recently released its
tentative five-year work schedule
for fiscal years 2010-2014, and it
contains several million dollars
for right of way purchases for the
Starke bypass project.
A total of $33.1 million has
been added to the work plan
for those land acquisitions, and
while that sounds like a lot, the
last estimate for construction the
western bypass around the city
was approximately $230 million.
It is the most money earmarked
for the project to date, however.
The acquisition money has been
scheduled for Fiscal Year 2013.
Also, after Carter and County
Chairman Doyle Thomas and


attended a public hearing on
the work plan, DOT advanced
construction of a sidewalk on
C.R. 229 from' S.R. 16 to Starke
Elementary from Fiscal Year
2012 to next year.
Another addition to the work
program would have DOT
repaving.C.R. 237 from 18 to the
Alachua County Line in 2014.
The work program is tentative
and ultimately depends upon
legistla.iye approval and fund
appropriation as well as inclusion
in DOT's final five-year work
program for 2010-2014.

County not
happy with
CSX repairs
Carter also said the county has
sent a letter to CSX to address
the way in which recent track
repairs were handled. Carter said
the repairs resulted in a number
.of citizen complaints.
While needed, Carter said
the repairs caused too many
disruptions.
The letter signed by Chairman
Doyle and Sheriff Gordon Smith
points out that too many crossings
were at once. In Lawtey, as many
as four crossings were closed
multiple days, resulting in a
five-mile detour for emergency
vehicles. Three other crossings

at not cost.
Grant writer Scott Modesitt
was at a loss for new suggestions
about how to attract new
applicants to help the city spend
around $200,000 in state money
to hook people up to the sewer
system.
The city will give a little
more time for applications.
.March 31 is the final deadline.

only access to and from their
homes.
Although crossings under
repair were opened back up in
the evening, they were left in
poor and potentially vehicle-
damaging condition. No signs


address, not a rental property,
vacation home, etc. Finally,
applicants must be current on
all utility fees owed to the city.
Those who owe the city money

were posted to warn motorists of
the track conditions.
While county officials
contacted several CSX staff
members, the .county received
no assistance and no access to
a supervisor who could rectify
matters.


The letter, mailed to CSX
CEO Michael Ward, requests a
meeting to resolve what it calls
"a major breakdown in public
relations and communication
within your organization."


Local banks rank high on list compiled for landfi


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
With a great. deal- of public
money invested, but an interest
in keeping business local and
also secure, the New River Solid
Waste Association has ranked a
couple of local banks as strong
contenders for future association
deposits.
According to association
Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal, future deposits will be
steered toward these stronger,
safer banking institutions.
R.M. DearingoutofMacclenny
was the consult accounting
firm tasked with the rankings.,
Banks in Bradford, Baker, Clay,
Alachua, Columbia,Duval, Levy,
Marion, Nassau and Putnam
counties were considered in the
survey. : i I., ', .
The, largest banks in north
Florida were left out as the focus
was on smaller, community-
based institutions that are locally
owned and operated. Only
national, state or federal savings
banks were considered, not credit
unions.
To be eligible for New River
Solid Waste Association deposits,,
those deposits must be FDIC
- insured, the bank must have been
around for more than five years,
have a minimum capital-to-asset
ratio of 8.5 percent, have a net
*-- interest margin of 3 percent or
greater 'and have a loan-to-asset
ratio lower than 85 percent. In
addition, non-performing assets
'cannot exceed 55 percent.
Netinterestmargininparticular
-was particularly important in, the
survey because, Dowling said, a
.... lot.depends on a banks ability to
generate profit.
Among those ranked the
highest was Bradford County's
own Community State Bank.
According to Dearing, the bank
is small but ultra-conservative
in its business practices. With a
low number of non-performing
loans, its return on assets is above
average. Its net interest margin is,
well above 5 percent, while its


non-performing assets is below
11' percent.
According to Dearing,
Community State is typical
of a small community bank
that knows its market and its
customers.
Community State Bank was
founded in Starke in :1957 and
also has a branch in Union
County. The bank takes pride
in its roots, saying on its Web
site, "The directors, officers,
and employees of Community
State Bank are all local people.
They attend church with many
of the bank's customers; and
their children and grandchildren
attend school locally. This is
why everyone who works for
Community State Bank has a
vested interest in the community
which it serves."
-. It offers persorial .and .savings'
accounts, (Q: individuals.: and
businesses as well as consumer,
commercial and agricultural
loans.
Capital City Bank of Starke
also made the list of the top
five strongest local banks. The
consultant called it one of the
largestand betterhigh performing
banks in Florida. Dearing said
Capital City has an excellent asset
ration and is handling toxic loans
well with adequate reserves.
With a net interest margin above
5 percent, which Dearing called
exceptional, the bank's "cost of
funds is modest and its loan rates
are excellent."
Capital City Bank has.branches
in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
The most local of those are in
Starke and Keystone Heights. It
is Tallahassee's oldest bank, first
opening it's doors 1895. Since
then, its Web site, boasts, it has
survived depressions, natural
disasters and world wars to
become one of the state's largest
financial institutions.
Despite its size, the hometown
feel of its local branches is
emphasized.The banksemployees
are active community members
and the bank's foundation helps
fund local causes.

Inaddition to checking,savings
and loan services, the bank also
offers credit card and investment
services.
In Baker County, eligible
banks included First Federal
FSB and Mercantile Bank. Both
are branches with headquarters
elsewhere. Mercantile also has a
bank branch in Starke.
First Federal was tanked
as strong, while Mercantile's
financial strength was seen as
moderate in part because of the
consultant's prediction of non-
accrual problems this year.
The two other banks with a
. high financial strength rating
were CNL Bank in Jacksonville
and Drummond State Bank in
Chiefland.
Starke was the. only area to

Board "will oppose
tax on garbage
It was reported that among the
ideas floating around to generate
additional revenue for the state,
the governor's office might
propose a $1.25 per ton tax on
garbage disposal. Half of, the
revenue generated would go to
the state's general fund, with the
other designated to help the state
meet future recycling goals.
O:Neal highlighted some
problems with the proposal,
including who would be
responsible for collecting the
tax and the disadvantage Florida
landfills wouldbe at if garbage
were to cross the state line to
avoid the tax.

DAVID WHEELER
NORCROSS, GA.

In 1996, David Wheeler and his good wife Carolyn were living a very normal life with three
wonderful children. David served several years as a minister. He also held the position of assistant to the
president of Faulkner University, and, at the time, was director of development at Greater Atlanta
Christian School.
December 12, 1986 just was another beautiful day for the Wheeler family until, David attempted to
pick up a postage machine and something in his back popped. This would change the lives of the family
forever. *
David lived through years of pain, suffering and depression. He endured six surgeries and endless
treatments, all to no avail. He weathered the storms and, with Carolyn's help, began to put his life back
together. You will be uplifted as you follow him through the darkness of despair of pain and suffering to
the light of stronger father and greater service to man and' God. David is now a well -known watercolor

SLake Butler were approved
at Monday evening's Union
County Board of County
Commissioners' meeting.
The property owner of Plum
Creek and county staff have

Sheriff asks
for help
with mailbox
vandals

BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Nearly two-dozen mailboxes
-in the Providence area were
vandalized over the weekend,
and the Union County Sheriff's
Office is asking for the public's
help in finding whoever is
responsible.
Lt. Doug York said the
incidents occurred between
evening and early morning
hours of Saturday and Sunday
C along C.R. 245 from S.R; 238 to
' mailboxes on SW 44th Lane.
Mailboxes are considered

community."
Just- how many jobs it could
mean is not known, but with a
maximum area of 6.1 million
square feet for industrial use,
it could mean potentially
hundreds of jobs for the county.
It also means a considerable
amount of revenue added to the
county's tax rolls.,
Commissioner Jimmy
Tallman asked if traffic
considerations had been
made for the area. S.R. 100 is
presently a two-lane highway
that already has a significant
amount of semi trucks traveling.
the road each day.
Powell said that is one of the
reasons the first phase of the
project is capped at 2.5 million
square feet of industrial use
until 2013.
"The roadways can handle
the traffic to that point, but
ultimately as we add'more end
users, the road will need to be
improved, otherwise businesses
wouldn't want to consider
locating here.,
A citizen asked who would
be responsible for waste
management- natural and
industrial 'waste removal.
Powell answered that would
be the responsibility of the end
user as part of their management

effort enhanced in UC


According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA), rural
drivers and their passengers are
among the least likely American
motorists to regularly use their
safety belts.
In fact, 1,445 people were
killed in motor vehicle crashes
in rural areas of north' Florida
during 2007, and 30 percent of
people killed in those crashes
were not using their safety belts
at the time of the crash.
That is why '"the Union
County Sheriff's Office has
joined forces with NHTSA,
the Florida Department of
Transportation, state and
local highway safety and law
enforcement leaders across
36 counties to launch a high
visibility enforcement initiative
called Click It or Ticket-Rural
":'Safety Belt Initiative. The
goal is to save more lives by
convincing more rural drivers
and their passengers to always
buckle up.
"No more warnings. No
more excuses. We're going
to send the Click It or Ticket
message loud and clear," said
Union County Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead. "Too many drivers
and their passengers are getting
killed, so we want to mhke sure
they are buckled up-every
trip, every time."
Drivers and passengers in
rural areas, and particularly
those in pickup trucks, have
much lower safety belt usage
rates than the occupants of all
other vehicles. In 2008, the
observed safety belt use rate
among pickup truck drivers and
passengers in the 36-county
area was 76 percent compared
to the 81 percent in cars and
more than 85 percent in vans
and.SUVs.


March Dimes
fundraiser set
A March of Dimes March for
Babies fundraiser car wash will
be held at Spires IGA in Lake
Butler this Saturday, March 21,
from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.


The Click It or Ticket rural
safety belt initiative is set for
March 13-21.
"We are going to step up
enforcement efforts to remind
everyone to always wear their
safety belts," said Whitehead.
"The simple step of buckling up
is the single best defense against
ejection and will increase your


odds ofsurvival in a light truck
crash by as much as 80 percent
in the event of a rollover."
The ejection rate for
occupants of light trucks in a
crash is nearly double the rate
for vehicle occupants, mostly
due to the lack of safety belt
use.

Controlled burn gets out


of control, no injuries


The Keystone Heights Volunteer Fire Department was one of several
scene at last Monday's McRae/Belmore fire.


KHES practices for fou


Students at Keystone Heights
Elementary School perform
three drills several times each
year. One is a rehearsal for what
to do if the building catches on
fire, another is what to do when
the classroom is notified that an
intruder is on the campus. And
then there's a tornado drill.
Because of Clay County's
high use of portable buildings,
in lieu of building more concrete
block or brick classrooms,
almost 25 percent to a third of
the elementary school's classes
are housed in portables at any-
given time.
This doesn't normally present
a problem, until.the Lake Region
encounters a fairly' frequent
North Florida condition: bad
weather--especially hurricanes.
and tornados.


Hurricanes are a different
issue, since their arrival can be
fairly accurately predicted days
before they arrive. Tornados
can drop in pretty much
unannounced with only a few
minutes notice.
In February, the elementary
.school took part in a state-wide
tornado emergency drill.
As part of the mock exercise,
students in classrooms all over
the elementary campus were
notified that a tornado had been
spotted in the area. Students
and teachers in the portables
lined up and walked slowly but
promptly into a hard-built area
of the school, Students kneeled
in lines dowyn the corridorsrs
and covered 'their heads" while
teachers monitored the group.
Faculty members brought along

supplies that might, be needed
in cases of real emergencies.
On hand were several
representatives from the
Keystone Heights Volunteer
Fire Department,incldtding John
Ward, the town's emergency
planner.
Principal Mary Mimbs and
Ward timed the exercise from
its initial announcement over
the school's public address
system until the last child
was safely sheltered in the
corridors. Mimbs and Ward
said it took students about
five minutes to prepare, from
the announcement to the last
. student arr gv pg in. the hallway.
Ward said, the safety-.zone
was estimated' at' five to seven
mIninutes. Mimbs said students
had also been evacuated to the
school's media center.


KH True Value suffers wind damage


Wind damage can come in
,a variety of styles, not just
tornadoes. In February,
Keystone Building Center co-
owner Doug Wise described a
"micro-burst" that damaged the
True Value Hardware site.
The area was already under
a tornado watch. The tornado-
like wind formation touched
down at the KBC around 9:45
a.m., and traveled through the
lumber shed, appearing and
disappearing in seconds with
no warning.
Lumber was lifted off stacks
and shelves; signs were broken;
rolls'of fence wire were turned
over like matchsticks. A hitch
was badly damaged when the
trailer was blown at right'angles


MBCA meets

The Melrose Business and
Community Association met in
February.
Steve Thrift was awarded
a ,Community Service Award
in recognition of his years
of s'eice to the Melrose
Community as chairman of
the Merry Melrose Christmas
Parade.Thrift indicated he plans
to continue with the parade.
Judy MacLaren brought
the group up to date on the
announced sturgeon farm to
be located near C.R. 219 and,
S.R. 26. The proposed facility
has many requirements to
meet before it can be approved
by the St. Johns River Water
Management District board and
then Putnam County, McLaren
said. A suggestion was
made to have an appropriate
representative of the sturgeon
farm speak to the MBCA.
Deborah Strickland of North
Florida Regional Medical

moving along well.
Jonathan Leslie, Florida

Across the road from elegant
homes along S.R. 315, a man
with a fire ax headed down a
- dirt road into the smoke on his
ATV last Monday. Asked how
big the fire was, he shouted as
he disappeared, "A couple of
acres."
It was a bit more than that.
northbound mid-afternoon
commuters on S.R. 21 faced
two huge pillars of smoke, one
gray.and one whitish gray.
However, when drivers
got beyond the area between
McRae and Belmore? they
found not only smoke, but fire
along the highway.
Firemen across the road were
watching to ensure that flames
didn't jump the highway'and
get into Camp Blanding trees.
On Tuesday, Annaleasa
Winter, a wildfire mitigation
specialist with the state's
Division of Forestry, said the
fire started when a land manager
began a 50-acre, authorized

She added that by

the two men were remorseful

AMVETS cooks

for Wings of Dreams


Keystone Heights Airport
has recently been busy as ever,
but especially during the Wings
of Dreams air show. B-17s, P-
51s, B-24s and other aircraft
were landing and preparing for
the big weekend.
AMVETS has been cooking,
too. Friday evening, after
everyone settled in, Bob
Sauers and other AMVETS
Post 86 and auxiliary members
prepared steaks to order for all
the pilots, crews and. Wings of
Dreams staff.
Up and at 'em at 4:30 a.m.
on Saturday was Ruth Tutton
and her crew, .who served
breakfast for all until 9 a.m.
As if that wasn't enough: after
cleaning up from breakfast, the
crew jumped right in to serve


lunchtime sloppy Joes for-more
than 150 people.
Sunday morning, Tutton and
her crew started all over again
with two hours of breakfast
service and again jumped in to
serve meatball subs for 150.
Everett Tutton and his
crew then made way for a rib
dinner, always a great hit with
pilots and crews. There was
one last breakfast on Sunday
before everyone headed home.
AMVETS Post 86 members
volunteered their time for and
said they enjoyed doing it.
The Collings Foundation,

GRANT:
Continued from p. 1A
Tillis. said. "Very early in the
process, they had been provided
with a complete copy of the
lease agreement. If this was
something that could not be
done, why was the grant process
continued by USDA?" Tillis
asked.
The city requested to act as
it's own contractor to perform
the work, but meetings with
USDA financial representatives
indicated this was not possible
and it would have to be done by
a licensed contractor according
to grant regulations. In order
to cover the amount of work
necessary with the available
grant funds, USDA did finally.
agree the city could perform
the work by allowing Tillis to
supervise under his contractor's
license without compensation.
Tillis said that several times
during these meetings, it was
stated again that this work was
for the purpose of reaching the
point of selling this facility to
Bailey. The renovations were
completed just before Tillis
retired from his position as city
manager on Aug. 31,2007.
Only days into office,new City
Manager Berchtold said Bailey
contacted him about purchasing
the building. In looking into
the matter, Berchtold contacted
Rural Development and was
notified that according to the
conditions agreed upon by
Tillis in 2006, the city would be
required to repay a portion of
funds if they proceeded with the
safe. Berchtold requested they
follow through, with the sale,
holding the grant amount in
escrow until the repay amount
was determined. The closing
took place in November of
2007, with the. city selling the
building to Little Rainbows for
$304,500, significantly below
the appraised value. Tillis
defended this decision by saying
the. economic development
provisions of Florida Statutes
provide for discounting the
sales price of the property if
the discounted price can be
recovered within a five year
period by revenues such as
payroll taxes, sales tax and
property tax.
Neither the city nor Rural
Development disputed the
fact that the total value of the,
daycare project was $576,500
($470,000 pre-renovation value


plus.$106,500 in grant funds).
The hearing appeal
determination stated that
Berchtold, acting on behalf
of the city, was aware of the
provisions that the city would
be responsible for paying the
recapture of funds if they
proceeded with-the sale of the
building to Little Rainbows.
The appeal finding statement
reads as follows, "Appellant
proceeded with the sale of the
building (for less than its fair
market value) at its own risk.
At no time prior to the sale
of the building did appellant
ask Rural Development how
the agency interpreted the
repayment provisions or seek to
resolve any misunderstanding
about the provisions. Any
misunderstanding about
RBEG's repayment provisions
is regrettable, but not
unavoidable."
In speaking to Tillis by
phone, he stated that Berchtold
briefly discussed the issue with
him, but never contacted him
about the need to assist with the
Little Rainbows hearing. In his
defense, Berchtold stated that he
depended upon the knowledge
and advice of the city. attorney
regarding the matter and felt
he should proceed with the
contractual obligations that took
place before he entered office.
Tillis did point out that
although the city may have to
repay $93,600, it gained more
than $600,000 on sales and.
rental agreements for property
that was given to them free and
clear. Moreover, as a result of
the revenues received, the city
commissioners gave monthly
. discount credits to water and
sewer customers for a number
of years. "
"Overall, I don't see how that
can be viewed as a negative,"
Tillis said.
"Plus, five new jobs were
created, which was what the
grant was all about," he added.
Berchtold did not dispute
these facts. "I proceeded with
the best interests of the city in
mind," he said.
Since receiving the decision
of the appeal, Berchtold
has drafted a letter to Tom
Vilsack, secretary of USDA in
Washington, requesting that
the funds remain in escrow for
another USDA eligible project
the city has pending, such as a
number of infrastructure projects
and a pending application for a
new city fire station.

New priest heeded late calling


Lmnta Johns was honored March 3 as a Santa Fe
College Woman of Distinction.



Johns h ono red


as SFC Woman


of Distinction


BY CLIFF SMELLEY.
Telegraph Staff Writer
Linda Johns of Starke was
one of six honored by Santa Fe
College during its annual
Women of Distinction,
.luncheon, which was held
March 3 in Gainesville.
The college, in honor of
Women's History. Month,
selects a group of women each
year to receive its Alachua-
Bradford Women .of
Distinction and Woman of
Promise awards. Johns was
honored along with Alachua
County residents Carolyne
Freeman, Peegen Hanrahan,
Veita Jackson-Carter and
Kathie Southwick as a Woman
of Distinction, while this
year's Woman of Promise (age
16-21) is Alachua County
resident Hope Olexa.
"It was an honor to "receive
such an award," said Johns,
who is the clerk for the city .of
Starke. "I felt like I had won
an Academy Award."
In nominating Johns for the
award, Scott Roberts wrote,
"Her goals have always been
to improve her community."
Johns said she feels it is her
duty to do so as an elected
official, but added helping
others is something she derives
joy from, even if it's
something as simple as saying,
"Good morning," and giving
someone a smile.
At the Women of
Distinction luncheon, Johns
referred to a quote by Eleanor
Roosevelt: "Since you get
more joy out of giving joy to
others, you should put a good
deal of thought into the
happiness that you are able to
give."
"God gives us all talents,"
johns said. "We need to use
them. We. need to help
people."
In, his nomination letter,
Scott wrote that one of Johns'
greatest passions is her
involvement with the Shands
Starke Auxiliary. How great is
that passion? Consider that
Johns has logged more th-ii-n
4-5,000 volunteer hours with
the organization, which raises
money to benefit the hospital
in various ways.
This week, Johns has been
busy at the Bradford County.
Fair, where the auxiliary
annually sells such items as
hamburgers, chicken
sandwiches and strawberry
shortcake. Johns said she goes
to the fairgrounds- at 7 a.m.
each morning and stays until
approximately 11 a.m. She
returns to her job at city hall,
but is back at the fairgrounds
at 3 p.m. or 4 p.m., staying
until midnight.
"I guess you'd have to say
my love is my hospital
auxiliary," Johns said.
Jeannie Baker, the
administrator of Shands
Starke, said under Johns'
leadership,: the Shands Starke
Auxiliary has established an
-endowed scholarship at Santa
Fe College, designated more
than $20,000 to support the
hospital's new emergency
department and furnished a
new bereavement room.
Johns has served as the
organization's president more
than once and has been
reelected to the position the


last three years.

They say mother knows
best.
Conrad Cowart seems to
have indeed determined his
mother knew what she was
talking about, though it took a
while for God to make that
determination.
Cowart is the-new priest at
St. Edwards Catholic Church
in Starke, taking .over for the
retired Bill Hochheim. He has
been at the Starke church for
five years, serving in the
capacity of administrator while
working as chaplain at Shands
Hospital in Gainesville.
Though he is 69, Cowart has
only been a priest for 13
years-he, was previously
assigned to two churches in
Jacksonville before becoming
.chaplain at Shands. His mother
told him when he was a boy he
was supposed to be a priest,
but Cowart never felt he was
being led in that direction.
"I was always active in thef
church, but never felt a calling
to be a priest," Cowart said
That changed, though, when
Cowart attended a Catholic
men's retreat. That's when he
received God's calling, which
he shared with a group of men
he was sitting at a table with.
"All of a sudden, I looked up
at all the men around the table
-and said, 'I'd like for you all to
know that I'm going to be a
priest.' I don't know if they
thought I was being funny or


what," Cowart said, "but after
T was ordained a number of
years later, some of those same
men came to my ordination.
They said, 'Well, you told us
you were going to be a
priest.'"
Once Cowart received that
calling at the men's retreat, he
said he had no doubt
whatsoever that he would go
on to become a priest. Students
at a seminary are told they are
there to discern whether or not
they have really been called by-
God to be a priest, Cowart


said. His only doubt, he said,
was if he could keep up with
his studies.
As he put it, "The Lord
provided." That can be said not
just about Cowart getting
through seminary, but the fact
that his mother was alive to see
him fulfill what she thought
was his destiny.
"My dad lived long enough
to see me in the seminary
before he died," Cowart said.
"He knew I was going to be a
priest, but I was especially
happy my mother lived to see

Cowart was raised in

COWART
Continued from page 1 B

looks at it, being in Starke is
pretty much the same as being
in Jacksonville. It's a much
quicker drive than the one
from Gainesville to
Jacksonville, and vice versa,
he made when he was chaplain
at Shands. Sometimes, the
drive between Starke and
Jacksonville is quicker than
driving between two points in
Jacksonville.
"To tell you the truth,
sometimes it takes you 30
minutes to get from the beach
to downtown if there's any
traffic," Cowart said. "I feel
like I'm almost in a suburb (of
Jacksonville) in many ways."
Besides the short drive,
Cowart also enjoys the people
at St. Edwards and in Starke.
Those who attend St. Edwards
hahe been very welcoming, he
said, and seem to share his
eagerness in renovating the
church.
"They seem to be as excited
as. I am-and. was-to get the
place fixed up," Cowart said.
"We still have a second
collection once a month to go
toward our building fund."
Renovations have already
begun. During the time Cowart
has been at the church in his
administrative role, work has
.been done on the rectory,
adding a bedroom and a
bathroom. The "ugly, old"
ramp, as Cowart referred to it,
that was once in front of the
church building has been
moved to the side and is
accessible from the parking
lot.
"It makes it real nice
because people can get out of
their,cars and walk right up the
ramp,' Cowart said.
The ceilings and walls inside
the church building have been
redone, while new lighting was
installed. Cowart said the
congregation wants to install
new pews and stained-glass
windows.
"I hope I'm able to stay here
long enough to see everything
completed," Cowart said.
That would be just bne more
highlight Cowart ias
experienced since becoming a
priest. Another would be the
trip he made to Rome in 2000
to concelebrate mass with
Pope John Paul 1I. The Pope
invitedfpriests to Rome for his


80'" birthday on May 1.8.
Cowart estimated 5,000 priests
attended.
"There were priests there
from all over the world," he
said. "It was very exciting. I
enjoyed it very much."
Another thing Cowart
enjoys, when he's not busy
with his church duties, is
spending time on the water. He
has always lived on the water
in Jacksonville and loves
boating.
"That was one thing I
missed terribly in Gainesville
all the time-the lack of
water,",Cowart said.
Still, Cowart is thankful he
had the opportunity to serve as
chaplain at Shands in
Gainesville, though it was a
ministry that kept him busy.
"That's is a 24-hour-a-day
job," he said. "You keep a
beeper on your belt. You can
be called any time of the day
o-r-night. Not only thE, buit-
you're dealing with sick and
dying people, pretty much, all
the time. After a while, that
can kind of start getting to
you."


Some priests are called to do
such work, Cowart said, but he
definitely thinks every priest
should put in some time doing
hospital work. He said it
allows you to see people in a
different light, which can be
rewarding.
"It's fulfilling to help dying
people come to the Lord,"
Cowart said. "Some of them
have been away from God a
long time-been away from
the church a long, time-but
finally realize the end is
coming. Most of them thank
God and have a change of
heart. That's kind of a
beautiful experience for me-
to help people prepare
themselves to meet the Lord."
It's an experience Cowart
would not have had if he had
not been called to be a priest. It
may have happened later in his
life than for most, but Cowart
said that is simply the way
God works.
"God calls us at different
times in our lives to do
different things," he said.
"We're not always called at
the same time to do the same
things."

Today's tough decisions


will lead to better future


As many of you know, the
legislature recently met in a
special session to make
significant cuts to the state's
budget for the current fiscal
year. This special session was
called as a direct result of the
economic downturn our nation,
our state and our individual
communities have all been
experiencing. This downturn
led to subsequent cuts to many
programs and it will definitely,
shape the. policies we
implement, as well as the final,
budget we pass during the'
upcoming regular session.
It isn't an easy task to
. T.tintaii- a- balanced budget,
which is mandated by our
constitution. When state
revenues are dramatically
down, it requires either cutting
funding to departments and
- programs or raising taxes.
Many of my colleagues and I
felt that now was not the time
to further burden Florida's
families and businesses with
additional taxes. No single
solution iill be.able to resolve
the' deficit we are facing this
spring. However, by making,
reductions in spending and
using, reserve funds, we have
been ale to steer clear of tax
hikes and also were allowed to
avoid -%major. reductions to
essential programs.
While we faced a $2.5
billion shortfall for this fiscal


Lawtey .resident
responds to
editorial
Dea Editor:
This is in response to Buster
Rahn's article about a traffic
light in Lawtey in 1941.
To my knowledge, there
never was a traffic light in
Lawtey until the one that is
there now. I believe it wa's
ristalHed 'in thev'80s. wIwlve- a

50s and early 60s. I believe if
you. were to ask the people
.who were around in the 40s,
ryou would get the same,
response.


year, next year's shortfall has
the possibility of reaching $5
billion-$6 billion. I think this
makes our decisions and our
approach this year even more
important. By tightening our
collective belts and reducing
spending in non-essential
areas, we will be better
prepared for future shortfalls.
Using tax increases as a
"Band-Aid" for this year will
only delay the inevitable as we
move into the next fiscal year.
Many citizens have voiced
their concerns about the cuts
that have been made to
education. As chair for the
Higher Edtication Committee
and a father of three sons who
attended public schools, the
education of our children is a
top priority. However, with the
deficit we face, no program or
department can be held
harmless and education is no
different. Considering
education takes up over half of
the budget, sparing, education
from cuts would unduly
burden the departments. that
receive significantly less in
appropriations (health and
human services is second with
just over 25 percent).
,We have worked to cut as
little as possible and maintain
funding in areas that are
essential to our youth who are
enrolled, in K-12 classes.


The only traffic signal we
had back then was cows, goats
and hogs crossing the road or
lying in it. But. in 1948, Gov.
Fuller Warren put a stop to
livestock running loose by
putting a rule in law that all
livestock had to be penned.
I hope this enlightens you on
this subject. Me, myself, I truly
believe you have your towns
confused.

KH man shot,

Lake Region resident
Mitchel Roloph was near an
unnamed lake around 8 p.m.
on March 3 when a black male
approached him from behind
and demanded his wallet at
gunpoint.
Roloph produced a pistol
from his waistline, and pointed
it at the robber, who fired one
shot, striking the victim in the
left arm, before fleeing the.
area on foot.- Roloph returned
fire, but wasn't sure whether or
not he had hit the suspect.
Roloph told an investigating
officer that he then ran to his
vehicle and tried tQ, drive off,
but his vehicle got stuck in the
sand.
Roloph, who had a
concealed weapons permit,
refused transport to .the
hospital. A K-9 -investigator
responded to the scene but the
suspect was not located.
Roloph said the black male
was approximately 5'6" tall

blood on Roloph's left upper
arm.

engineering, while holding
jobs with the state and the
United States Department of
Agriculture Meyerson
pictured herself eventually
working in a laboratory
setting. However, once she
thought about that, she decided
she heeded ,to do something
more. Teaching seemed to best
fit her personality.
"I think that the creative side
of me needed expressing," said
Meyerson, who began teaching
at Santa Fe in 2005. "That's
why this field is just a lot of
fun."
As for becoming a children's
author, it was something
Meyerson had given thought to
before. After she had written
her first book, she found an old
-journal of hers in which she
had written 10-year goals for
her life. One of those goals
was to write for children.
"I had totally forgotten I had
written that as one of my
goals," she said'.
"The Adventures of Molly
the Monarch Butterfly and
Friends" was completed last
year, but the genesis of the
story goes back much further.
Meyerson said when she was a
child, her youngest sister
found a wounded monarch
butterfly. Her. sister put the
butterfly on the family's porch
and fed it sugar water from a
wetted lollipop. The butterfly
lived for weeks on the family's
porch, taking in sugar from a
lollipop and rehabilitating
itself.
It was an unforgettable
moment for a family that
surrounded itself with. ahimirs.
"It was just one. of those
random acts of kindness that
had kind of a ripple effect or
impact on all of us," Meyerson
said. "My whole family was
like that. My father would take
in horses. I've done horse
rescue. We had a farm and had
just about every critter you
could think of on it."
Butterflies, in particular,
though, would be a part of
Mev'erson'r life again. She

rearing center and remembers
discovering a butterfly puppet
on the premises. One day, she
took the puppet, called it
"Molly" and entertained a 4-
year-old visitor 'with it.
Meyerson later heard from the
child's parents how much the
puppet performance had
affected their child. He was
reciting butterfly facts at
home.
"They wrote this beautiful
letter for taking the time and
teaching him," Meyerson said.
"It was just kind of a fluke.
From that point on, I just
started doing puppet shows for
(the center) all the time."
!.What. Meyerson found was
that children wanted more of
Molly than what, they were
getting from puppet shows.
That's what led to the idea of
writing books about Molly.
Meyerson has a second book
pretty much written, while' a
third is being mapped out.
Writing the first book came
easily, Meyerson said. That's
because her story relies on
butterfly facts.
"It was so easy because the

character is also a puppet and

Ricky Robert Tyson, 48, of
Starke was arrested March 16
by SPD officers for possession
of drug paraphernalia. He was
being held on no hond.


The butterfly has to learn
Spanish because it is migrating
to Mexico.
Each puppet show Meyerson
performs includes a
memorable moment, she said.
For example, at one show. she
asked children how a butterfly
smells, meaning how it detects
smells. A child in the
audience, though, walked up to
Meyerson, sniffed the Molly
puppet and replied to the rest
of the children, "She smells
just like a.flower."
During another show she
performed to approximately 42
children, Meyerson had Polly
the Caterpillar saying she was
not as pretty as a butterfly. A
boy jumped up, approached
Meyerson and began stroking
the caterpillar puppet, telling
Polly that she was pretty.
"About that time, all these
other children jumped up,"
Meyerson said. "They were
encouraging -the caterpillar,
too. I had to change the skit
midstream."

Friends," which is credited to
Meyerson under the name of
"Maureen Akey," can be

A Fireman's Prayer
When I am called to duty, God
wherever flames may rage...
Give me the strength to save
some life whatever be its age ..
Help me embrace a little child
before it is too late...
Or save an older person from
the horror of that fate...
Enable me to be alert and hear
the weakest shout...
And quickly and efficiently to
put the fire out...
I want to fill my calling and to
give the best in me...
To guard my every neighbor
and protect their property ...
And if according to your will,
I have to lose my life ...
Please bless with your
protecting hand my children
and my wife.

Curtis L. White, minister Scott Fisher, minister


When: Sunday Tuesday, April 5, 6, & 7
Where: Union County High School Auditorium in Lake Butler
The schedule of events are as follows:
Sunday Musical Concert featuring various groups from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Followed
by Worship from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and Mon. Tues. at 6:30 p.m. nightly

The speaker for this prestigious occasion will be none other than Lawtey's own
Minister Curtis L. White, working along with Minister Scott Fisher of Lake Butler.
My dear friends, today we are living in a religious world of confusion with many
claiming any and everything in the name of God, many people believe that if it
feels right, then it must be right. But, I must say today, that one's feelings are not
the standard that one must follow in order to arrive at the destination of truth.
Because feelings are deceiving.
Little do many know that Jesus said long ago in John 8:31-32 .That if ye continue
in My Word, then are ye My Disciples indeed, and ye shall know the truth.
This is an opportunity of a lifetime for all of us to come together of all races and
denominations to study the scripture to see if the things we have been taught are so:
Listen... Christ is not divided arid neither is He the author of confusion. So come
one, come all to the Union County Crusade for Christ.
P.S.
Bring your Bible and feel right at home.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Pitcher Jessica Knight did
not give up an earned run, but
the Keystone Heights softball
team lost its second game of
the year by a score of 1-0 to
host Fleming Island March 10.
The game was a scoreless tie
after seven innings, but the
Indians had a chance to change
that in the top of the eight.
They loaded the bases on a
walk and two errors, but were
unable to score.
Fleming Island had a runner
on third in the bottom of the
ninth. An error on an
overthrow to home allowed her
to score and end the game.
Knight gave up just five hits,
striking out eight.
The Indians were held in
check by Fleming Island as,
well, getting just one hit. !
Keystone would rebound,
defeating two District 6-3A
opponents by a combined
score of'14-1 and improving
its record to 10-2 (4-0 in
District 6). Knight (9-2) gave
up a total of four hits and
struck out 19 in the two wins.
Five players drove in runs in
an 11-1, six-inning win over
visiting Interlachen March 12,,
including Kari Minor, who
was 2-for-4 with three RBI.
Minor drove in two runs in a
seven-run sixth that ended the
game. The inning featured a
double by Tori Jolley and RBI
singles by Ryan Story and
Chandler Singletary.
Story's single put the
Indianst p 5-1. Two more runs
scored on an error, while
another scored on a passed
ball. Singletary delivered her
single for a 9-1 lead, followed

BHS drops 3

of 4, but no-

'hits UCHS
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a tough week for the
Bradford baseball team, which
lost two straight District 3-4A
games by a combined score of
31-6, but the Tornadoes did
record a win against visiting
Union County March 12,
which included the program's
first no-hitter in some time.
Pitchers Alvin Shireman,
Gary Jones and Charles Jones
pulled the feat off in a 5.-3 win
over the Tigers. Head coach
Lamar Waters said he believed
it was the first no-hitter thrown
by Bradford pitchers ;in
approximately 10years. ,
It was a bad start for Braford


as Union batters drew five
walks in the first inning, which
helped the Tigers go up 3-0.
Gary Jones relieved starter
Shireman to help the
Tornadoes get out of the
inning. Jones, who forced a
fly-out to end the inning, went
five-and-a-third innings,
striking out three and giving
up one walk.
Tyler Yowell pulled the
Tornadoes within one in the
second inning' with a single
that scored Alex Orozco and
Zach Coe. Coe later put
Bradford on top with his own
two-run single in the third.
Yowell scored the last run
on a sacrifice fly by Ryan
McKeown.
Coe and Trey Winkler, who
had a double, each went 2-for-
3. The rest of the team had just
three hits off of Union pitcher
Kris'Bracewell.
Charles Jones earned the
save for Bradford, striking out
two of the three batters he
faced.
The Tornadoes would go on
to drop their next three games,
giving them seven losses in
their last eight games.
Bradford hosted Fort White
March 13 and was up 3-1
entering the fifth. A grand
slam helped put Fort White upI
7-3 as the Indi'ns would go on
to win'11-3.
Bradford took a 2-1 after
two innings. McKeown scored
in the first off..of a single by
Orozco, while Chris Mejias
scored in the second on a

single by Charles Jones.
Mcjias scored Bradford's
third run in the fourth on a
passed ball.
Things got away from the
Tornadoes in the fifth. A hit
batter and three straight singles
led to two Fort White runs. A
walk loaded the bases, setting
the stage for the grand slam.
Walks were an issue in the
Tornadoes' next game, h 15-1
loss to district opponent Baker
County in Glen St. Mary
March 14. Bradford gave up
seven walks and hit four
batters in the second inning.
For the game, Baker County

in District 3).

only run. He singled in the first
and scored on a double by
Shireman.

picture booksfor preschoolers.
Each child, through Reach
Out and Read, starts
kindergarten with a home
library of up to 10 books and a
parent who has heard about the
importance of books and
reading at every doctor's visit.
Additionally, a reading corner
is set up in each facility's
waiting room for volunteers to
read aloud to children while
they are waiting to see their
doctors.
Pediatric providers at
Shands Starke Medical Group
have distributed approximately
4,000 books to local infants,
toddlers and preschoolers since
instituting the program in
September 2007. Nationally,
Reach Out and Read providers
have distributed 5.4 million
books to more than 3.3 million
children and their families
annually in all 50 states,
targeting those centers that
serve children at
socioeconomic risk.
Published studies show that
parents are more likely to read
to their young children and
'provide books in tlhe home if
they get booUk and literacy
,counseling from their
pediatricians. Studies have also
shown that programs such as
Reach Out and Read lead to
improvement in expressive and
receptive language scores of
young children.
Dr. Deborah Weyer; a
pediatrician with Shands
Starke Medical Group, said
she thinks the program has a
.need in Bradford County based
- on the following statistics:
* 69 percent of Florida
counties had higher FCAT
reading scores in 2005-06 for
third- and fourth-graders.
The Florida Department of
-Education determined that in
2005-06, 79 percent of Florida
counties were at higher reading
levels than Bradford County
for students in all grades.
In 2005-06, 74.percent of
Bradford County students
graduated high school
compared to,approximately 80
percent at the state and
national level.
Only 8 percent of
Bradford County students
graduated from four-year
universities in 2005-06
compared to 22 percent at the
state level and 24 percent at
the national level.
Shands Starke Medical
Group is in need of volunteers
to read to children in the
waiting room. If interested,
