The reading and mathematics
AssessmentTest (FCAT) has been
administered to Florida students
in grades 3-10Q each year since

has been, to serve as'a long-term
comparison of student academic '
progress.with the Sunshine State
Standards. The science FCAT for
students in grades five, eight and
11 began in 2003. In addition,
students in grades four, eight and
10 are tested in writing.
Achievement levels range
from one (the lowest) to five (the
highest) ,and represent the. level
Sof'success a student has achieved
in each subject'area. A student

considered to be performing at or
above grade level.
This year across the state of
Florida, 61 percent of students
in grades 3-10 are reading at or
.above grade level.
Lake Butler Elementary
Locally, 78 percent of third-
grade students at Lake Butler
Elementary. School scored a level
three or above in reading. The
third grade state average was
4l percent.'In mathematics, 71
percent across the state scored a
level three or above, with LBES
third" graders surpassing that
average with 78 percent.
Fourth-grade students rose
to the challenge as well with
-79 percent scoring a level three
or above in reading when the
state average was 74 percent. In
mathematics, it was.80 percent
of LBES fourth graders scoring a
level three or above compared to
the state average of 75 percent.
For FCAT Writes, 93 percent
of fourth-grade students at LBES
scored a level 3.5 or above, the
same as last year. This tied them
for the highest percentage in the
state. LBES fourth graders have
had the highest state average for
10 years running. *
Principal. Lynn Bishop said she
contribu�rs the success of the
students to an- incredible faculty
-and staff who work tirelessly to
meet the needs of the students.

Looking to better enforce rules
regarding truancy, the Bradford
County School District took
.its first two cases before Judge
Phyllis Rosier on Monday.
Both cases are children of
parent Brenda Jenkins of Starke,
who faces jail time under Florida
law because her sons have missed
so much school.
The district filed a civil
complaint that was heard June
8. School Board Attorney
John Cooper made, his case by
questioning Principal Jason
Jennings about the truant boys.
and attempts to get them to
Jennings testified that out of.
180 school days. the sixth-grader
had missed 148 days. His brother,
a third-grader, had missed 134
days. Both had failed all of their
subjects for the 2008-09 school
year. Jennings said.
In response to the excessive
number of absences, Jennings
said the school took many steps to
,get the boys in school, including
contact with their mother via.
mail, phone and home visits.
Jenkins said the family signed an
attendance contract that was not
honored. The district even made
additional effort to pick up the
students and get them to'school.
Judge Rosier wanted to know
why Jenkins couldn't get her
sons to attend.
"You're their mother, It's your
job to make them to go to school,"
Jenkins said she gets them
ready,. but it's taken the principal
or police sometimes coming to
pick them up in order to'get them
Rosier asked Jenkins if .she
understood the consequences she
is facing because her children
have missed so much school. She
'asked the boys as well, inquiring
where they. would live if their
mother were sent to jail. They
were hesitant to speak, and ,the
judge was only able to get one.of
the boys to demonstrate he could
At the judges request,
Cooper told the courtroom that
if found guilty of contempt..in;
this civil matter, Jenkins could
be sentenced to,more than five
months in ,jail. That process
could be repeated if the truancy
is not remedied. Cooper also said
this could become a criminal
case, and the children could also
be removed from the home and
placed in foster care.
According to Jenkins, the boys
have told her she would be the
one facing the consequences, not
them. Rosier clarified, however.
that the students could be found
in contempt as well and placed in
a detention facility.
The judge asked the boys
what they thought would happen
to them if they didn't get an
education, saying that even
those. with degrees are having
difficulty finding employment in
"Somebody that doesn't have a
high school diploma doesn't have
much of a chance," she said.
The goal of the proceeding
was not to, embarrass the boys,
she said, but come August, if the
boys arc not in school every day.
barring an excused,absence. both
they would go to detention 'and
their. mother to jail,.
Turning to a young lady in
an orange inmate- uniform -with
experience in front of the judge,
Rosier asked her to explain a bit
about what it \\as like to live in
a detention facility-from being
locked up ever\ da\ tO being
brought to court in handcuffs.
"It's no life. is it?" Rosier
"No," the girl agreed.

sons to school and for the bo\s to

The judge told the boys that
kids get into trouble on the streets.

people seated in the courtroom
had been in school instead of
involved in drugs and crime, they
would not be in court now.

that worries their mother. Rosier
told the family there are summer
programs available to them as

Rep. Adkins reviews legislative session for county commission
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
State Rep. Janet Adkins
was welcomed by the county
commission to talk about what
happened during this year's
legislative session and some of
what the future holds.
Adkins began by discussing
the state of the economy.
, With growth decelerating, the
State's gross domestic product
ranks 47"' in the nation.compared,
to 12'1 in 2006 and second in
2005. Adkins said that decline
in growth has had a tremendous
impact on the state budget.
Historically. . the state's
unemployment rate has been
better than the national average,
but today it exceeds that average,
she said. Bradford and other north
Florida counties are faring better
manyincentral andsouth Florida,
howeVe'rwhere unemployment is-
above 14 percent in some places.
A global recession, tight credit'
market falling home pries-are
responsible, Adkins said. ThEheis
an excess of homes on the market
and a number of foreclosures.
"The good news i the economy
will rebound, it's,jusit simply
a matter of when. Optimistic
estimates say April 2010. Others
say.third quarter 2010. It's really
going to depend on when the
prices of the homes get down low
'enough that the buyers decide
to jump in and to bite," Adkins
She showed a time line that
:depicted the state economy would
be back to normal growth in 2011
or 2012. That means there will be
at least one more budget year that
the state will have to tighten its
belt, she said.
Men and women ofail ages who
love gardening are encouraged to
attend an organizational meeting
to start a new garden club in
Starke on Thursday, June 18, at 7
,p.m. The meeting will be held'at
the Bradford County Extension
O 4fice--,ocated .at 2266--N.,
Templ&Ave.-(U.S. 301) in Starke.-
Refreshments will be served.
Some of the benefits garden
club members enjoy include
horticulture 'workshops on
vegetables, flowers, landscape
plants and other related topics;
field trips to botanical gardens
and nurseries and the sharing
of garden tips, plants and seeds.
Garden clubs promote civic pride
and: social activities - through
Jackie Host, president of the
Keystone Heights Garden 'Club
of the Lakes. believes, "There
is something really special
about being one of the founding
members of a garden club."
For more information about
garden clubs, call Jackie at (352)
473-8095. To register for the
event, call the Bradford County
Extension Office at (904) 966-
6299. UF/IFAS Extension is an
equal opportunity institution.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, in cooperation with the
Florida Cattlemen's Association, '
and the University of Florida-"
IFAS, have scheduled a
conference to formally introduce
the recently adopted Cow/Calf
Best Management Practices
manual on Tuesday, June.23, at
the Bradford County Extension
This meeting will provide
cow/calf producers with key
information on the use of the
manual, enrollment process, soil
testing and forage production as it
relates to waterquality protection.
This is a very important program,
given the vast number of acres of
rangeland in Florida. Producers
are encouraged to make every
effort to attend.
The seminar will be held
from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Bradford
County Extension Office.
Call (904) 966-6224 for more
information. The complete
agenda is available online at

disabilities . requiring special
accommodations, please contact
For that reason, Adkins
said the $5.3 billion in federal
stimulus money was split across
two budget years-the upcoming
budget year beginning July I and
the year after.
"The reason that we did not
use all of it in this budget year
is because we're expecting next
budget year to be just as bad if
not worse," she said.
The state budget for 2009,10
is $66.5 billion, compared to
$66.25 billion this year. Even
though the budget is larger, it's
still down from the years when
the state was enjoying budget
surpluses. Back then, the state
was looking for ways to spend
money, Adkins said.
"Fortunately, I think the new
legislators that have come in
understand that the bottom can
fall out of the economy just as
quickly as it picks up;' she said.
Health care and education are
budget. The breakdown is health
care-39 percent, education-32
public safety-7 percent, general
government-7 percent and
Adkins said she received a
number of letters supporting
education and health care
funding, but given the size of the
state's investment, it's difficult
not to make cuts when revenue
falls short, While the state was
able to hold some programs
harmless, she said she knew local
governments and school districts
are still hurting.
Public schools are also hurting
because of declining enrollment.
Since funding is based on the
number of students, districts'
the Bradford County Extension
Office at least five working days
prior to the program in order for
proper consideration to be given
to the request.

In order to support health care,
less money is coming out of the
state's general fund. Instead,
more is coming from trust funds.
and furiding was increased
overall. Adkins said.
The state also had to generate
some new revenue to support the
budget. Adkins did not support
all proposals to raise revenue.She
voted against gambling expansion
and new cigarette taxes. She
supported fee increases, most of
the revenue from which would go
to education in the coming year,
Adkins spent a lot of time
and energy defending Northeast
Florida State Hospital in Baker
County from state plans to
privatize it. Bradford ,County
and the city of Starke supported
the fight by passing resolutions
against pr iaiil/.i ion;' for
which Adkins thanked, them.
Commissioners . recognized
the hospital .had a number of
employees who live in this county
as well as Union County.
It was a fight that had to be
-won three times, she said. While
the state was looking to save
around $3 million by privatizing
the facility, Adkins argued the
state could save more than.$.U
million if it simply paid' for the
beds that were occupied instead
of paying for the total number of
beds in the hospital.
Adkins said the legislature
passed 238 out of 2.369 bills
in this past session. A typical
session would pass around 400.
but this was no typical session
County Public Library meeting
room beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The workshop will be given by
Forester Nicole Howard and Paul
Still of the Bradford County Soil
and Water Conservation District.
The workshop is fre6, but space
is limited. Preregister by calling

What is a Mother's Love?"
My dear, Rebeckah Lynn Shemer, when you were born, I
named you Relbeckaih, from the Bible. You grew up in church
.and turned out to be quite a lady. When you were eight years
old, you came to nie and wanted to give yourI heart to God i and
le baptised and live for God. You finished school and always
helped the old and young. YouI would stop and pick tup an
injured animal along tle road, bring it home, doctor it, let it
go. You took care of" your Grandpa and me; you cooked; you
cleaned for me, never asking anything in return. You were
always working, never complained, you got married and have'
three beautifully children. God's wa. of paying me back. I've
seen you riding on a mower,mowing grass when you were eight
months pregnant so you could have the weekend off to .spend
with your family to chill out. You work in the vi d, you clean
thle house, .'lou cook, you take the kids to school, you do the
*hlundryh, you buy the groceries, you pay tile bills, you take the
kids to the doctor when they are sick. You ask nothing in
return, just to be happy. For someone who has never time for
herself, I think you are (lie most beautiful person in thie world,
just by being yourself. Oil, yes, \oui also have a job working
outside the home five days a week, after taking the kids to
school. What more could a person ask lor, you are the ricdiest
person in the world, you have a heart of gold and your
Grandpa and I are proud to have you lor a granddiaghter.
Always remember, have faith; it can move mountains. Always
remember, I thank God each and every day inor you and Iny
great-grandkids. You have madec e m he lhappii.Iest personiI in the

she said. Between the budget
and stepping up for the hospital

issues taken up this year. she saic
the Legislature made Citizens
Property Insurance Corporatior
more competitive and more
actuarially sound by allowing
rate increases. The Legislature
also created a property tax
exemption to encourage land
to be placed in conservation
potentially replacing some of
the state's burden to buy land for
conservation purposes, she said.
Continuing the topic of
property taxes, Adkins discussed
an approved ballot measure
that, would allow voters to
limit taxable value increases
on non homestead property
Another measure will ask voters
whether to grant additional
homestead exemption to first-
time homebuyers, a measure
that could help get homes off the
market, she said.
Legislators took action to keep
workers' compensation rates low
and put money into attracting
businesses to create jobs, she
-idded. - -
One of the biggest
accomplishments was expanding
the Small County Outreach
Program to allow counties to
use grant awards to build new
roads, improve drainage and
repair" bridges in addition to
resurfacing, although funding
was cut back. The Small County
Road Assistarce Program was
also saved from sunsetting and

For Bradford County,
workforce education dollars, and
money for adults with disabilities
totals almost $1 million. Adkins
said. K-12 education funding
is down almost $1 million, or
another 3.72 percent on top of
prior cuts.due in part to declining
"I know that's a big hit,
especially when you're dealing
with a small county." Adkins
With regard to infrastructure,
the county will receive roughly
$8 million, including the
Department of Transportation's
planned resurfacing of S.R. 100.
Chairman Doyle Thomas said
Adkins had been an ally for the
county in Tallahassee, and he
and the other commissioners
took turns thanking Adkins for

A message from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division
of Forestry, Charles H. Bronson, Commissioner. Funding supplied by the USDA Forest
Service; an equal opportunity provider,
on Floridians and the level at
which the state funds education
compared to other states. Adkins
said funding level doesn't always
translate into better schools.
Chandler also said the state
and its regulations are not
business friendly, and Adkins
said the state has tried to
streamline environmental and
other requirements because ,of
competition with other states for
these businesses. She also pointed
to invest ment in infrastructure as
a way the state is trying to spur
Adkins thanked the
commission for the office space
granted to her in the courthouse.
She said it's been a big help to
her and the citizens of Bradford
She also thanked Malcolm Hill
for helping her locate a house

her out of a hotel.

UC horse has first case of EEE
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Secr ices has reported the
first case of Eastern Equine
Encephalitis (EEE) in a horse
in I nion County.
Statewide, this is the 14th
horse to be reported with EEE
\irus infection in 2009. Three
other cases were reported in
neighboring Columbia County.
According to Dr. Mike Short
with FDACS, Florida has
averaged 75 confirmed cases
each year during the past 20
years. In most all of them, the
horses had not been vaccinated
within the past year and many
have no vaccine history at all.
The sad news is that over 90
percent of horses infected with
EEE die. The message to horse
owners is to vaccinate.

According to Phillips
the best part of her job is,

"Thirty-five years in this-

I'm five over. I reallN don't

John Allen is a teacher and
an art lover, and his job has let
him do what he loves. Off and
qn, he taught art at KHHS for
30 years. He also taught math
for six y.ars and served as the
school's yearbook sponsor.
His choice of career came
after receiving an associate's
degree from Miami-Dade
Community College. He
was soon accepted into UF,
where he met a girlfriend .who
majored in art education. After
seeing how much fun she had
doing her job, he soon followed
suit. Allen had always wanted
to teach, but until that point he
was unsure of what to teach.
Allen is still at the top of
his game, but, sadly, he has
no choice but to retire. This is
lIis fifth year in the Deferred
Retirement Option Program, a
point at which the state is now
forcing teachers to retire.
Allen said, "I feel like I have
had the best job in the world.
Thank you for a great 31 years

Next, Allen may 'teach

some free time. '
Eileen; Smith has taught
math at KHHS for 34 years,
and said "The best part of
teaching is seeing "the ,light

has taught. Smith has been at

News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area
Veterans reminisce about D-Day at Camp Blanding
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A museum's displays can
tell a story, but nothing can
,document history quite like
talking to someone who has
actually lived it.
That is why amidst the
displays of World War II
equipment and other
paraphernalia utilized by U.S.
soldiers, Greg Parsons, the
curator of the Camp Blanding
Museum, felt it important to
invite those who had those
who had actually served during
World War II to be a part of
the museum's recognition of
the 65th anniversary of D-Day.
It's one thing to read Tom
Brokaw's ,book, "The Greatest
Generation," Parsons said. It's
quite another thing to actually
talk to people who have lived
through experiences most of us
have only read about.
"What's written in the
history books is one thing."
Parsons said, "but. when you
meet the guys who were
actually there and who fought
in that battle, _you kind of
realize, 'Ok, there's a lot more
to it than what's in the history
Several veterans were on
hand who either landed on the
beaches of Normandy on D-
Day or who escorted men and
equipment to the beaches that
day. None, at that time, knew

they were participants of an
event that would live on in
history. As Lionel Capoldo of
Lake City put it, 'It Wasn't
until later that I realized it was
supposed to be so-iething
Francis Heppner, who
landed on Utah Beach at
approximately 9:30 a.m. that
day, said, 'All we thought of
was getting off the beach."
Heppfler, Capoldo and
several other veterans shared
_their stories with those who
asked a-id-plfced a wreath at
the museum's D-Day
monument in honor of those
who fought and lost their lives
on those beaches. Capoldo
tried to say a few words to the
assembled crowd prior to the
wreath placement, but he just
could not get many words out,
citing the fact he wag not
prepared to make any kind of
However, it was apparent
Capoldo was also overcome
. "We were the ones who took
those guys up to the beach,"
the Navy man said.
When asked afterward what
D-Day meant to him, Capoldo
replied that it was hard to say.
"IL was a point in my life
where I was 18 years old and
really didn't know what the
heck I was doing," he said.
"The boat I was on, we
escorted the, first-wave troops.

was another Navy man who
participated .in D-Day. His
landing craft tank made its first
approach to Omaha Beach at
approximately 6:25 a.m,
carrying 1)D (duplex-drive)
"We landed just before the
troops did, about three to five-
minutes before they came in,"
Starling said. "We retracted

at us to start with, but as soon
as they saw those tanks roll off
our deck, they forgot about us
and went after those tanks."
The second trip to shore,
after a return to the cargo ship
for reloading, was rough,
"The dead and the dying and
the debris had started floating
out," he said.
Starling, whose craft made
three landings, remembered
seeing an infantryman running
out of the smoke and flames on
the beach. He said he could
imagine the soldier, who was
wounded, thinking to himself
that he was brought aboard the-
beach upon an LCT, so if he
could reach the one Starling
was aboard, he would be safe.
"He just fell forward,"
Starling said. "That's when we
were retracting. There wasn't
anything we could do for him."
By the (time- Heppner's�
battalion reached the beach,
the infantry had pushed the
Germans back so that there
was no small-arms fire on the
beach, Heppner said. However,
the Germans were still shelling
"We walked up on the
beach," Heppner said. "In the
whter, there were bodies of
soldiers rolling around in the
surf. They were the infantry
that had been killed in the
water. Their skin was starting
to turn black already from
being in the water."
It brought home the reality
of the situation for Heppner
and all those young men who
had never seen such sights.
"The bodies were our
introduction to war- that war
was real and that people got
killed," he said.
Heppner said there were no
casualties in his battalion .
during that landing on the
beach. Capoldo said his group,
which consisted of 1,500 men,
was supposed to sustain high
casualties that day.
"Fortunately, we didn't,
although my best friend in the
Navy did get killed," Capoldo
Veteran Thomas Santarsiero
of Gainesville said he should
have been killed his first day
of' battle. He also said he

catcher. Waters said Winkler's
times on throws from home
plate to second base are
comparable. to Division I
However, -Winkler said he
expects to play all over the
field at Ave Maria, which is
something he looks forward to.
"I like doing that better than
just playing one position," h;
No matter where Winkler
,plays on the field, one of the
things he takes the greatest
pride in is hitting, especially
the long ball. Waters said
Winkler's ability at the plate
made him the one player
opposing teams focused on.
"When he gets hold of a.
ball, it goes a long way,"
Waters said. "He had a couple
of home runs this year that
probably made it between 450
and 500 feet."
Winkler now has the chance
to take the ball out of the park
as a college player, something
he admitted will probably
make him nervous at first.
However, he expects it won't
take long for those nerves to
go away once he steps on the
field for the first time and gets
caught up in the game.
