Kilby noted that. the- seat beTt

that the baby riot only.had -a

As. Policastor was making

and Deputy James Murphy put
ankle restraints on Wells and
strapped him down with a seat

his head against the rear door
window.-
. As the two officers went
to further restrain Wells, he
allegedly pushed , Murphy
against the door of the car.
The officers decided to
send Wells to the Orange Park
Medical Center for evaluation
and called for medical
assistance. When medical
technician Kevin Merritt got
near Wells, the restrained
teenager allegedly spat blood
and saliva on the EMT. A "spit
shield" was placed over Wells'
head and he was transported
to OPMC without further
incident.
Policastro also interviewed

at Hitchcock's who said Wells'
had been stumbling and falling

KH woman sells bogus tickets on Craigslist.com


According to a report filed by
Clay County Sheriff's Office
'Investigator R.L. Scucci, a
Keystone Heights woman
has been arrested after using
Craigslist.com to sell bogus
tickets to the Masters Golf
Tournament and the Kentucky
Derby. -.


Nicole Danae Little, 36, was
arrested June 14 on warrants
for two counts of grand theft
and two counts of. scheming
to defraud. More charges are
pending.
Scucci reported that the case
came to his attention after a


circuit court judge in Clay
County,. Mo., called. CCSO to
report that she had purchased
tickets to the Masters and sent
a .money order to Little at her
Keystone address. The judge
never received the tickets, but
the money order had been
cashed.


As Scucci continued the
investigation, lhe found other
victims of the fraud. Masters
tickets had been purchased by,
but never delivered to, five
different victims as far away as
Virginia. The total amount of
Masters' tickets purchased was
$5,210, as.of June 16.


On May 14, Scucci
was contacted by a man in
Kentucky who had purchased
tickets to the Kentucky Derby
from Little through Craigslist.

the tickets, although the check
for $2,500 was cashed,

Assault

suspect

arrested
On June 13, a Providence
man was arrested for the
attempted sexual assault of a
73-year-old
female. He
was appre-
hended the
day after a
composite
sketch was
distributed
throughout

and news
media. Holmes
Numerous
tips led to
the arrest
of Dorlee
Holmes Jr.,
30, .who
is now in
the Union
County Jail
charged opposite
with battery Composite
and sexual
assault on an elderly person.
When Major Garry Seay of
the Union County .Sheriff's
Office first made contact with
Holmes, Seay said he was
driving his green Kiaand had cut
his hair, possibly in an attempt
to avoid being identified by the
composite sketch. According to
Seay, Holmes voluntarily stated
that he did not mean to hurt the
victim,but had been looking at
pornography when something
came over him.
Just after 3 p.m. on June 7,
the 73-year-old Union County

a walk in the area.of C.R. 245
in Lake Butler when Holmes
allegedly drove past her, then
exited his vehicle and attempted
to sexually assault her. After
she bratelg fought him off, he
apologized and returned: to his
car and fled.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead said
he knows the public and the
sheriff's office have a vital
partnership and stated that the
efforts of his department and
the around-the-clock attention
of Major Seay brought this case
to a successful conclusion.
"We really appreciate the
public's help working this
together," he said. "We are
very glad the victim is OK and
she should be commended for
fighting off her attacker."
This investigation is still
ongoing and other area assaults
are being looked into as well.

Vandalism stunt draws school board's anger


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Editor's note: A production
error caused the majority of the
following story to be omittedfrom
the last edition. We apologize for
the error and have reprinted the
article here in its entirety.
The Bradford County School
Board isn't happy with the pre-
graduation vandalism prank
pulled by more than a dozen
students and intends to send
a. message that future such
incidents will result in stiffer
. consequences.
That's because the board
wasn't happy the way the May 26
incident was handled either. .
School Board Member Vivian
Chappell said she was humiliated
that the district had once again
drawn widespread and negative
media coverage.
Chappell said she had a
problem with the fact that seniors
involved were allowed to walk at
graduation. In her mind, the kids
involved got off scot-free.
"Ten hours of community
service is nothing for what was
done," Chappell said.
A few days prior to graduation,
dirty mattresses, tires and a
motorboat were dragged onto
the BHS campus by a group of
students. Graffiti was painted on
the sidewalk and motor oil was
poured on windows and doors
at the school. Vending machines
were vandalized and 'benches and
bleachers were destroyed.
Chappell said she wanted to
know how much was. spent by.
the district, city, etc., cleaning


this up.
"I had teachers telling me they
smelled awful because they were
picking up everybody in Starke's
garbage that was all over the
school grounds," she said.
She also wanted to know why
campus gates that the district
spent a lot of money on were left
open at night.
The policy approved by the
school board last year states,
"Any junior or senior who
willfully damages school
property resulting in $500 or
more in 'damages may have
their privilege to participate in
-graduation ceremonies revoked
by the high school principal."
As, Chappell pointed out, the
code of conduct says nothing
about community service and
she wanted to make it clear that
the school board had no part in
the punishment decision that was
made since the board members
have been accused of softening
the punishment doled out for
political reasons.
School Board Randy Jones
agreed with Chappell that the
policy needed to be revisited.
"We don't have enough teeth in
this policy. We give the decision
to the high school principal, and
it's tough to put someone in that
position," Jones said.
If,the policy spelled out what
would happen, that would take
politics out of the decision, said
Jones. If ,there's a crime, the
punishment needs to be the same
no matter who commits it, he
said.
School Board Member Jesse


Board members say punishment

should have fit the crime


Moore said the punishment
received for the vandalism
bothered him as well. The
punishment needs to' be severe
enough to discourage future
incidents, he said.
School Board Member David
Smith said the district failed 17
or 18 students by not instilling
in them what good citizenship is
about.
"We didn't teach them
anything-just slapped their hand
the other day," he said. "Had we
been stern with them, perhaps
we could have prevented more
serious stuff down the road."
The vandalism was planned he
said, and even if someone stood
by and watched it happen, the
same penalty should be handed
out.
Smith called for zero tolerance
and said I the prohibition on
participating in graduation
should apply to any vandalism
caused by a student in their last
two years of schooling.
"We can't prevent them from
graduating, but we can prevent
them from walking, and that is
pressure that parents and family
can bring upon these young men
and women from the home side
to encourage them not to place
themselves-in that position," he
said.
, Chappell said the board needs
to take care of the vandalism


policy over the summer.
"I don't think we should start a
new year without a policy letting
them know from day one what's
going to happen," she said.
One citizen, Esther Kelly,
spoke about the incident, saying
her son had been punished with
in-school suspension at the
middle school for a tussle over
a backpack during which he was
hit. Given the damage to the
high school and the community
service given to the perpetrators,-
she asked how the disparity in
punishments was fair?
" "If you're going to show grace
and mercy to some and grant
community hours to a group,
please show grace and niercy to
all students," she said.
Superintendent Beth Moore
addressed the time line of
events, saying she was the one
who made the call about the
community service punishment
and explaining her reasons.
The vandalism .took place
the Tuesday before graduation
following the senior awards
banquet. Superintendent. Moore
said she believes there -was more
than one group of students who
went to the school and took part
in the vandalism. The district
waited 'on police department
investigators to know who to talk
to, and by Thursday morning
they had a good idea on who was


involved, she said.
Those students were pulled
out of the graduation line up
and made to go to work cleaning
campus that morning. Because
the district did not, and still
does not have a more complete
picture of which students did
what, the superintendent said
it was impossible to know
who compmitted $500 worth of
damage or more.
That is the minimum threshold
the code of conduct requires to
bar a student from walking at
graduation.
"As superintendent, I had to
make a decision to do something
to these students, not knowing
who had committed the major
portion of damage," Moore said.
She said she felt the community
service punishment was better
than doing nothing. Even
though the students participated
at graduation, Moore said the
investigation is not over and there
may be additional consequences
to come.
Starke Police Department
Investigator Roman Alvarez
explained to the board that even
though no charges-had been filed
yet, the investigation is ongoing,
although it was. i interrupted by,
other investigationss last week,;
including a murder investigation.
As of Monlday,'the're were still
students the department needed
to talk to,Alifirezfsaid, including
those belie ed to responsible
for the graffiti. "
Alvarez said if the department
could not determine precisely
who did what, there was a


possibility all of the students
involved could be charged by
sworn complaint, and then the
case would be in the hands of the
state's attorney.
He confirmed for the
superintendent that there was no
way the department could have
wrapped the investigation up
before graduation.
Speaking on behalf of the
police chief and the department
as a whole, Alvarez said they
believe this vandalism went too
far and they wish to work with
the board, superintendent and
administrators to keep this from
occurring again.
Superintendent Moore said
Police Chief Jeff Johnson had
promised more patrols around
campus during then end of the
school year.

Food service
grant received
School Food Service
Coordinator Dotty Rondelli said
the district has received more
than $82,000 for equipment
purchases. The award will
provide a POS (point of sale)
system for the district and a
walk-in cooler for Hampton
Elementary's cafeteria kitchen.
The middle school and each of
the elementary schools will also
be getting new ice machines.
"We asked for equipment we
needed. We thought we might get
one, but we got them all," said an
ecstatic Rondelli.


County asked again to consider funding recreation


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

After encouraging others to do
the same, Starke Mayor Wilbur
Waters approached the county
commission earlier this month
for money to support the city's
recreation program.
Waters .said the city and
county commissions are working


responsibility for certain services
and the county others. The city.
oversees recreation, while the
county shoulders library funding,
for example. \
Since the recreation sit-down
a couple of years ago, the city
has calculated that more than 70
percent of the youth participating
in recreation programs live
outside the city limits, even'

"The money is getting tight.
It's tight for the county, it's tight.
for the city, and it's not looking
no better for either one of us,"
Waters said.
Heaskedcountycommissioners
to consider meeting with the city
commission again as budget
planning begins for next year to
discuss the future of recreation.
The city and county sat
down in. the past to .discuss
recreation funding, but with no
resulting change in the existing
arrangement. Per past interlocal
agreements, the city bears


Participating families do pay
fees for most of the programs
they participate in. The recreation


board handles that money
separately from the allocation it
receives from the city. Program
fees cover operational and some
personnel salary costs. The city's
contribution is primarily tied up
in paying salaries and benefits.

obligation is still costly.
"If something is not done, I
don't see where we, as the city,
can continue with the type of
recreation that we've got for the

said.
He asked the county to find
money somewhere to help the

The county commission

around $12,000 of the purchase

A grant request was submitted

application approved was the one
submitted for Sampson City.
The truck should be delivered
by December.
The board approved purchase

replace the brush truck at

Auto parts sign stands though variance denied


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Starke Board' of Adjustment
members were none too happy
that the city commission
sidestepped procedure and
allowed nonconforming business
signs to be erected without, a
variance.
It is the board of adjustment
that is supposed to decide such
variances, but since O'Reilly
Auto Parts was set to open prior
the variance meeting, the city
commission told Operations
Manager Ricky Thompson
earlier this month to permit the
sign if the city attorney gave his
blessing.
Thompson had requested the
sign be allowed since the city
plans on liberalizing signage
regulations anyway. The
application requested a variance
from the 32-square-foot limits
on,the ground and wall signs so
O'Reilly could have a 112-square-
foot ground sign and a 71-square-
foot wall sign.
The O'Reilly signs, which
Thompson said are typical of
the franchise's signage at other
locations, have been erected
and the store has opened.,When
the board of adjustment met
Monday night, however, its
members criticized the city's
failure to follow procedure and
voted unanimously to deny. the
variance.

Starke considers taking liens to court


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Now that it has a streamlined
code enforcement process in
place,the StarkeCity Commission
has been asked what to do when
a, fined property owner hasn't
cleaned up their property and
hasn't paid their fines. -
City Clerk- Linda Johns said
when the city files a lien against
a property for unpaid fines, that
lien remains on the property for,
20 years (unless the property is
sold and the lien is settled then).
After20years-the4iefn-disappears
unless it is filed~new.
--Jhri ~tet%'io w N h the
city has to wait 20 years or more
before action is taken against
someone with a lien. She asked,
why can't the board set a deadline
for settling a lien-one year, five
years, etc.-before the matter is
turned over to the city attorney to
pursue collection?
Will Sexton of. the city
attorney's office has discussed'
options with Johns and Judge
George Pierce, the city's


magistrate, but ultimately the
city commission must provide
direction.
Sexton briefed the commission
on its options, which include
filing to tutn the lien into a
judgment against the property
owner. ,
The filing fee would cost the
city $300 each time, but the city
could recover funds that exceed
that cost. The fine typically filed
by the judge for noncompliance
with city .codes in $25 a day for
180 days, Sexton said, which
amounts to $4,500.
-.Though -judgments aren't
guaranteed, if the city is awarded
'ajuidgment for'a lien: that would
allow the city 'to recoup money
by going after personal property,
garnishing a person's wages,
etc.-just not foreclosing on a
.person's homestead. The city
could even ask for interest Jand
attorney's fees if the case has
taken a long time to settle.
Mayor Wilbur Waters said
he" didn't want to city pursue
action on day 181, right after the
fine has finished accumulating.


Instead, he recommended a
longer period.
Beyond that, Waters wanted to
know what would happen if the
city successfully gets a judgment
to collect an outstanding fine,
but the property has not been
cleaned up. Sexton said the city
also has the option of cleaning
up the property and charging the
cost back to the property owner.
Johns suggested the
commission consider the issue
and provide direction to those
handling code enforcement at a
future meeting.

Tax

collector

fees to

go up

All tax collector fees across
the state will have a substantial
increase effective Sept. 1.
To save money, those who
have a Florida driver's license
that will expire within 18
months can renew it by Aug.
3.1 and pay the current fees.
Automobile tags that will
expire as late as November can
be renewed by Aug. 31 to avoid
paying the higher fees. In fact,
those with current tags expiring,
by November can also take
advantage of the lower rates
by renewing their tags for two
years by Aug. 31. Those with
tags that have already been
renewed for the year are not
eligible.

SJRWMD to
comply with
SB2080-if it
passes
Preparing to comply with recent
Senate Bill 2080, which may
become law, the St. Johns River
Water Management District's
Governing Board voted last week
to delegate its authority to take final
action onpermit applications to the
district executive director, or his
designee, pending the legislation's
ratification.
SB 2080 was passed by the
legislature in its most recent
session, but hasn't yet been signed
by the governor. A number of
municipalities, including Keystone
Heightsand the Melrose Business
and. Community Association, and
environmental organizations are
urging the governor to veto the
bill.
The Florida Legislature's 2009
session approved an amendment to
Chapter 373 of the Florida Statutes
that includes changes to the
process for final actions on permit
applications submitted to Florida's
water management districts.
The amendment states, in
part: "The board shall delegate
to the executive director all of its
authority to take final action on
permit applications under part II or
part IV or petitions for variances or
waivers, and the executive director
may execute such delegated
authority through designated_
staff....However the board *,.hall
pjy,, tte 3 a-'process .,-'F ''r i '6 " '1
any denial of such' application"
or petition to the board int take
final action. Such process shall
expressly prohibit' any member
of a board from intervening in
any mianiner during the review
of 4n ,application prior to such
application being referred to the
board for final action."
Governing Board Chairwoman
Susan Hughes said the district
would carry out state policy as set
by the Legislature, although, "We
have heard concerns from some
members of the public about the
potential for less opportunity for
public input, and we are developing
an implementation strategy that
provides meaningful avenues for
the public to continue to have a
voice in the permitting process,"
Currently, about 87 percent of
all permits are approved at the staff
level at the St. Johns district. The
remaining estimated 13 percent are
considered by the board.
Unless the governor vetoes
the bill, it will become law
and be effective on July 1. If it
becomes law, permits that are
recommended for approval at .the
July 14 Governing Board meeting
will instead, be considered by the
executive director or his designee.
Permits that are recommended
for denial will 'continue to be
considered by the board.
If the governor vetoes the.
legislation, the board's action to
delegate its permitting authority
will be void.

district's Web site at www.sjrwmd.

filed by any persons other than those
entitled to written notice under Section
.120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within
14 days of publication of this Public
Notice or receipt of ,a written notice,


whichever occurs first. Under Section
120.60(3), FS., however, any person
who asked the Permitting Authority
for notice of agency action may file
a petition within 14 days of receipt of
that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the applicant at
the address indicated above, at the
time of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a waiver
of that person's right to request
an administrative determination
(hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this
proceeding and participate as a party
to it. Any subsequent intervention
(in a proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the approval of
the presiding officer upon the filing of
a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Permitting
Authority's action is based must
contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone
number of the petitioner; the name
address and telephone number of
the petitioner's representative, if
any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of
the proceeding; and an explanation
of how the petitioner's substantial
rights will be affected by the agency
determination; (c) A statement of
when and how the petitioner received
notice of the agency action or
proposed decision; (d) A statement of.
all disputed issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition must so
state; (e) A concise statement of the,
ultimate facts alleged, including the
specific facts the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modification of
the agency's proposed action; (f)
A statement of the specific rules
or statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action including
an explanation of how the alleged
facts relate to the specific rules or
statutes; and, (g) A statement of the
relief sought by the petitioner, stating
precisely the action the petitioner
wishes the agency to take with
respect to the agency's proposed
action. A petition that does not
dispute the material facts upon which
the Permitting Authority's action is
based shall state that no such facts
are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as set
forth above, as required by Rule 28-
106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's
final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this Public
Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit.
Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final
decision of the Permitting Authority
on the application have the right
to petition to become a party to the
proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.
Mediation: Mediation is not available

Union FFA members earn state honors
ENp-wwMI _q-l �


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Quick thinking and well-
chosen words earned Emily
Brown the first-place award in
the state FFA extemporaneous
public speaking competition.
Brown will now compete
scholarships and the national
title in October at the
national FFA Convention in
Indianapolis.
For the competition, Brown.
was required to prepare and
deliver a factual speech on a
specific agricultural issue.
She was given 30 minutes to
-prepare a 4-6 minute speech
on a choice of topics. A panel
of judges then asked Brown
questions pertaining to her
topic: In the first round, her
topic involved country of origin
labeling on food packages. In
the final round, Brown's topic
was on the role of U.S. farmers
and ranchers in protecting the
environment.
More than 200 applicants
throughout Florida submitted
applications within the
agricultural proficiency award
program. Four of those students
were first place winners from
Lake Butler: Caleb Williams,
Tyler Stone, Garth Ellington
and Victoria King.
The proficiency- program
rewards FFA members at the
local ,state and nationallevels for
exceptional accomplishments
in a supervised agriculture
experience, or SAE program.
By participating in a SAE,


students are given the
opportunity for actual
hands-on application
of concepts and
principles learried in the
agricultural classroom.
Students are supervised
by agricultural advisers
in cooperation with
parents, employers and
other adults who assist
them in the development
and achievement of their
educational and career
goals.
Proficiency winners
were 'awarded with a
check for $200 from the
Florida FFA along with a check
for $250 from the National FFA
Organization. These winners
will now compete against other
state winners for a chance to
win a national title in October.
Williams took first place in
the state agricultural mechanics
design and fabrication
proficiency.
Williams has spent countless
hours designing and building
podiums for the FFA advisers
with extensive detail such as
carving the names of the senior
class in it, as well as designing
arid building coffee tables,
picnic tables, curio cabinets
and the coveted oak medallions
for the Redneck Olympics
winners. Williams also worked
as the chapter's farm manager,
repairing or building equipment
needed on the school farm.
Stone was the first-place
winner in the state agricultural
processing proficiency.
In tenth grade, Stone began

Using what he learned
in his high school
food science class, his
job responsibilities
included pressure
washing and salting
hides for sale.
During his SAE, his
responsibilities grew
to include the cutting, .'1
cubing and packaging
of meat.
Ellington was
the winner of the G
state equine science
entrepreneurship
proficiency.
Ellington enjoys doing
anything that has to do with
horses from cleaning stalls,
feeding and even lending
a hand to the horse dentist.
After receiving his first horse
at the age of five,.Ellington
was hooked and has continued
to devote his time to the equine

Library gross-out kicks off teen program


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

If you have a weak stomach,
you may not want to read on. On
the other hand, if you've got an
iron will, zero gag reflex and you
a teen, you might want to think
about entering the annual Food
Fear Factor competition next
year..
Food Fear Factor kicked off
this summer's teen program at
Bradford County Public Library.
A packed room watched a dozen
of so contestants try to wolf down
disgusting concoctions. One,
two or more at a time pushed
themselves away from the table,
their faces covered in revulsion
or-if they made use of the handy
barf bags supplied-relief.
In the end, just two remained:
winner Kadie Oden and runner-
up Timmy Benson.
Library Director Robert Perone
and teen program coordinator
Michael Schofield clearly loved
the torture they were inflicting
on contestants and even argued
about who was most responsible
for the wicked event.
Perone introduced each
challenge gleefully reminding
contestants to smell their dish
before taking bite. He was
particularly proud of the "snot
sandwich." Schofield circled the
room, camera in hand, catching
each wince, pucker, grimace and
gag in digital format.
The award for most evil,
however, must go to whoever
was responsible for the menu.
The six course "meal" went all
the way through dessert. And,
yes, Kadie and Timmy finished
them all; and,,yes, there was a
tiebreaker; and, yes, it was even
more *disgusting that the meal
itself, which included:,
* The snack: onion and chive
cream cheese, feta cheese,
artichoke and garlic hummus,
blue cheese, goat cheese, wasabi
(Japanese horseradish), Monterey
jack cheese with jalapeno
peppers, apple cider vinegar and
soy sauce with Tabasco-all
mixed together into a spread and
piled on top of several crackers.
* The appetizer baby formula,
..maS~.;,ad.,.-heese " ith
vegetables Babiy tfod, pineapple
glazed ham baby food, sweet
potatoes and turkey baby food,
butternut squash and corn
baby food, apple cider vinegar,
unflavored gelatin and soy sauce
with Tabasco.
* "Buddy the Elf Spaghettios-
Library Style": spaghettios,
grapefruit juice, green apple jolly
ranchers, apple cider vinegar,
wasabi, tartar sauce, mixed
green juice, tomato and chilies
juice, apple cinnamon oatmeal
and cauliflower.
* The smoothie: mango ice
cream, grapefruit juice, baby
formula, banana nut oatmeal,
green apple jolly ranchers, apple
cider vinegar, maple syrup, soy
sauce with Tabasco, tartar sauce,
beet juice, cauliflower, gelatin
and ice.
* The veggie mix: turnip,
mustard and collard greens,
spinach, tomatoes, okra, corn,
green chilies, cheese, grapefruit
juice, maple syrup, cauliflower,
wasabi, soy sauce with Tabasco
and apple cider vinegar.
* The main course, "snot.
sandwiches": onions, green
peppers, squash with Vidalia
onions, greens (collard, mustard,
turnip, spinach), pimento cheese,
tomatoes, okra, corn, green
chilies, grapefruit juice,' maple
syrup, gelatin, cauliflower, soy
sauce with Tabasco and tartar
sauce-served on pumpernickel
rye bread.
*The dessert: mango ice cream
with anchovies and sardines in
mustard and dill sauce.
Kadie and Timmy managed
to choke down one dish after
the next, and just when they
thought it couldn't get worse, it
did. Out came the blender for the
tiebreaker. Some of each of the
preceding courses went in and
what came out was thick, brown
and pungent. Equal amounts
were poured into plastic cups and
given to the finalists. Only Kadie
managed to finish it all, winning
the event and earning top prize-
books, a role playing game and a


tote to carry them in.
For the next event, the blender
is going back in the cabinet, and
the gaming consoles are being
dusted off for a week-long virtual
football tournament, detailed
above.

Virtual football
tourney at
BC library
It has been three months since
the Bradford County Public
Library andAaton's Rent-to-Own
broke out their next-gen consoles
and supersized screens, so the
library's programmers think it's
about time to do so again. They
will be trying something a little
different, though: for the entire
week of June 22-June 26. the
Bradford Library will host an
NCAA Football '09 tournament
for the Xbox 360.
Imagine two screens back-
to-back, two consoles, and two
players per team maneuvering up
the ad hoc ladder toward victory.
The teams, which will be
drawn out of a hat (sorry, you
might not get to be either Gators
or Seminoles), will consist of up
to two players each. They will
participate in 20-minute rounds.
Depending on the number of
participants, the tournament may
end up being either single or
double elimination. However, a
loser's bracket will allow a lucky
team back into the playoffs.
The gaming will take place
in -the library's meeting room i
between . 2-5 p.m. every day
between Monday, June 22, and
Friday, June 26. Scheduling will


be flexible, because the library
knows that just because it is
summer it doesn't mean teens
aren't busy.
The tournament is open only to
teenagers. A bu.N-in for a quarter
per player \\ill help provide
refreshments for the teams and
spectators. Be sure to sign up at
the library's front desk.

taking a class ih Ilth grade

write short stories or poetry as

who spent 15 years in the world
of academia, figured he would
write Rome type of non-fiction'al
instructional book.
"I don't know. if I ever
thought I would write a novel,

The idea to do so began with
that writers' group, which came
about when Stefanelli attended
a lecture series onI poetry and

Auxiliary helps provide Shands chapel


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
For the past two years, Shands
Starke has been in a bit of a
flux as the emergency room
was expanded, but everything
seems to be in place with the
ceremonial opening of a new
non-denominational chapel
bereavement room on June 11.
"It kind of seals the deal,"
said Andrea Waterhouse; the
hospital's chief nursing officer.
Just as the emergency room
was expanded to better serve
the community, the creation of
a chapel/bereavement room also
meets a need at the hospital,

The black team gets ready to ski at an In His Wakes Day to Remember in
late April. "Victory comes when you, get off the dock!" was heard often that
memorable day at Lake Swan as home-schoolers tested themselves while
learning about water sports. "Wakes" was founded by Kristi Overton Johnson,
world record holder for women's slalom skiing since 1992. The organization
sponsors the Day to Remember programs to teach children about God while
having fun on the water. Asked what her favorite part was, homeschool student
Jasmine Teague said, "The tubing... the tubing was crazy."

Making changes...


How does one go about
making changes in
governmental agencies that are
functioning at a satisfactory
level with minimal complaints
from the citizenry? The answer
is. Very, very carefully.
The question quickly raises
,another question, "Why.
consider a change at all?"
There are two basic reasons
for considering change in law
enforcement. in Starke . and
Bradford County, the first of.
which is economic; local and
state taxes are not producing
the necessary funds to continue
all the tax-funded programs to
which we have become
accustomed and are loath to
reduce or discontinue, and
raising taxes in a depressed
economy is suicidal for
elective office holders. When
money is tight, as is the current
situation, it behooves everyone
to take a look at current
expenditures, personal or
otherwise, to determine that
every dollar is wisely spent.
Secondly, a lack of
complaints from - the
community may not be the
best barometer forldeterinining
effectiveness of. operation.
Both the Starke Police
Department and' the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office are
dealing with a relatively small,
stable, low density population,
a majority of which have deep
roots in the immediate area,
making law enforcement easier
than similar positions in many
other Florida counties and
communities.-
When the economy, is
strong, as in the recent past,
and tax money is flowing into
the state coffers, it is difficult,
to rally, support for changing
historical ways and means for
accomplishing tax supported
functions; however, decreased
revenues for governmental.



Brown reunion
planned
The annual Brown family
reunion will be held at Hart
Springs on Saturday, June 20.
The Browns are working on a
family tree and would appreciate
any pictures, litters or stories
family members have to share.
Meat, drinks and paper
products- will be provided.
Attendees are asked to bring a
side dish.


agencies emphasizes the need
to review agencies and
programs. The current slide in
tax revenue requires Bradford
County and the city of Starke
to review the possibility of
consolidating their two law
enforcement agencies, the
Starke Police Department and
the Bradford County sheriffs
Office, the advantages and
disadvantages inherent in
change.
Sheriff Gordon Smith,
former Starke chief of police,
estimates the savings to the
city of Starke at $300,000 the
first year, and possibly more in
succeeding years. Smith was
elected to the sheriff's office
last year'with an outstanding
majority vote and the city
promoted his protege, Jeff
Johnson, to the unexpired chief
of police term, it is a most
opportune time to visit
possible changes in county law
enforcement structure.
Sheriff Smith is 'a strong
supporter of combining .the
two agencies, a position he had
endorsed long- before his,
election to the sheriffs office.
A native of Bradford County,
Smith is interested only in
improving county government
and reducing the cost of law
enforcement in Bradford
County. He has purposely held
the chief deputy position
unfilled in the event the county
and city combine the two
departments, and will offer the
position to Chief Johnson. In
keeping with the city Charter,
Johnson will retain the chief of
police title, and his assignment
in the new agency will be
commanding the contingent of
officers working the city of
Starke zone.
Johnson says he is interested
in any \program - that is
beneficial fbr the city and
county, but has some
reservation about a reduction'
in (police) service. It is
difficult to disagree with that
line of thought, and any city-


county agreement must guard
against any "reduction in
service."
The consolidation of law
enforcement agencies is
sweeping across the nation in
both large and small
populations, and is being.
seriously considered in several
Florida situations, including
Lake Worth, Gainesville, and
Live Oak.
Live Oak is mentioned
because many people
remember that it abolished its
police department several
years ago, but returned to the
former system in the next
election, reinstating the Live
Oak Police Department.. An
informed law enforcement
officer . says an incoming
sheriff refused to provide law
enforcement services'for the
city, necessitating the
reinstatement of the city police
department.
The ball is now in the court
Sof city and county
commissioners. A dialogue
must begin somewhere, and
where a better place than
among elected officials?

Salute the flag
-Dear Editor:
I am typing this e-mail
because I am proud to be an
American. With that, I am so
thankful for this country and
I'm so glad we're a free
nation. I love seeing our
American flag flying and have
read about our heritage many a
time over the years. A heritage
rich because of those who have
fought hard to keep us going
strong. We are truly a blessed
nation!
I have been through town
and noticed that our post office
does not fly our American flag
on a daily basis. I have heard
others question this as well. Is
our post office not a federal
hbiljding?It's_ our.God given
right to fly our American flag
and it should be proudly put up
each and every day, rain or
shine. When asked inside why
the flag is not up, there really.
is no answer. We love our post
office personnel and are
thankful for the job they do,'
but honestly, why don't they
fly our flag daily is beyond,
well a lot of people!
Unless we have forgotten,
this is when we are supposed
to fly our flag: the flag should
be displayed on all days.
However, the Flag Code sets
out days that it is particularly
appropriate to display, the flag,
including holidays.
Time of day: According to
the Code, it's custom to
display the flag outside only
from sunrise, to sunset.
However, when a patriotic
effect is desired, the flag may
be displayed 24 hours a day if
properly illuminated during the
hours of darkness. Of all the
American propaganda, the flag

is the one that all of us, every
single one, should support. The
flag represents the true
America, and all - of our
freedoms. The America that's
laid out in our Constitution,
that was the dream of our
founding fathers and many
who have followed them.
A country where all men
(and women) can freely speak
their mind.
A country where-everyone is
equal.
A country where everyone
has a fair chance.
I'm American because many
have laid down their lives to
protect my freedom to be this
way, because of the sacrifice,
and the dream. I am patriotic. I
believe - in our country and
what we truly can be.
And our flag is a huge part
of that. It's a constant reminder
of our extraordinary blessings
to be American. It symbolizes
everything we 'have and
everything we are. It is

Parent/reader
questions FCAT
Dear Editor:
My daughter is in the third
grade. She 'has a 3.84 GPA.
How can a'child whg, averages
all A's and B's fail the reading
on the FCAT?. The lowest
GPA she had was a 3.33 and
that was for the nine weeks


period of time the FCAT was
being studied for and taken.
Why does the state put so
much emphasis on the FCAT?
It should be averaged, or
compared with their GPA or
something. Now she has to
give up six weeks of her
summer and give up her family
vacation to attend a reading
remedial class four hours a
day. There should at least be
something they can do online
with a parent, then be retested
at a facility or something.
My other daughter is in 101h
grade and she failed the
reading. She is also a...3.84
GPA student. Why? She has to
give up her dual enrollment in
vocational school next year to
be able to take the remedial
course for reading. And they
both read all the time.
The state, schools and
teachers make such a big deal
out of the FCAT that it freaks
the kids out. They make sure
they know that if they do not
pass it (certain grades), they
will be retained.
I have spoken to many
people, . parents, teachers,
guidance counselors, etc., and
they all agree with my point, I
am researching the FCAT and
going to start a petition. But
for now, my girls lives will be
on hold. It is not fair to the
children. Again, I ask why?
And how in the world am I

Man attacks
homeowners
with rake
. A man nicknamed "Happy
Jack" was admitted to the
hospital, for treatment of
injuries sustained when he
allegedly attacked Lawtey,
homeowners with a rake, said
Capt. Brad Smith of the
Bradford County Sheriff's
Office.
The incident happened June
10 at 11:35 p.m., when Jerome
Terry Turner, 54, knocked on
the door of a residence in
Lawtey. Turner was known in
'the area only as "Happy Jack,"
but was later identified by
name. When the male
homeowner answered the door,
Turner allegedly struck him
with a rake, causing a minor
injury to his leg.
The female homeowner then
struck Turner with a wooden
stick and the male homeowner
grabbed a porcelain doll and
struck Turner numerous times
in the head.
According to Capt. Smith,
when law enforcement arrived
on the scene, both Turner and
the male homeowner, were
transported to the hospital. The
homeowner was treated and
released, but Turner was
admitted.
Capt. Smith said the motive
for the attack has not been
determined. Charges are
pending.

Assault
suspect
arrested
On June 13, a Providence
man was arrested for the
attempted sexual assault of a.
73-year-old female. He was
apprehended the day after a
composite sketch was
distributed throughout the
county and news media.
Numerous tips led to the
arrest of Dorlee Holmes Jr.,
30, who is now in the Union
County Jail charged with
battery and sexual assault on
an elderly person.
.When Major Garry Seay of
the Union County Sheriff's
Office first made contact with
Holmes, Seay said he was
driving his green Kia and had
cut his hair, possibly in an
attempt to. avoid being
identified by the composite
sketch. According to Seay,
Holmes voluntarily stated that
he did not mean to hurt the
victim, but had been looking at
pornography when something
came over him.
Just after 3 p.m. on June 7,
the 73-year-old Union County
female victim was out taking a
walk in the area of C.R. 245 in
Lake 'Butler when Holmes
allegedly drove past her, then
exited his vehicle and
attempted to sexually assault
her. After she bravely fought
him off, he apologized and
returned to his car and fled.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead said
he knows the public and the
sheriffs office have a vital
partnership and stated that the,
efforts of his- department and
the around-the-clock attention
of Major. Seay brought this
case to. a successful
conclusion.

This investigation is still

are being looked into as well.

KH woman
sells bogus
tickets on
Craigslist.com
According to a report filed
by Clay County Sheriff's
Office Investigator R.L.
Scucci, a Keystone Heights
woman has been arrested after
using Craigslist.com to sell
bogus tickets to the Masters
Golf Tournament and the
Kentucky Derby.
Nicole Danae Little, 36, was
arrested June 14 on warrants
for two counts of grand theft
and two counts of scheming to
defraud. More charges are
pending.
Scucci reported that the case
came to his attention after a
circuit court judge in Clay
County, Mo., called CCSO to
report that she had purchased
tickets to the Masters and sent
a money order to Little at her
Keystone address. The judge
never received the tickets, but
the money order had been
cashed.
As Scucci continued the
investigation, he found other
victims of the fraud. Masters
tickets had been purchased by,
but never delivered to, five
different victims as far away as
Virginia. The total amount of
Masters tickets purchased was
$5,210, as of June 16.
On May 14, Scucci was
contacted by a man in
Kentucky who had purchased
tickets to the Kentucky Derby
from 'Little through
Craigslist.coin. The man never
received the tickets, although
the check for $2,500 was
cashed.

Legal Notice


DAVID ANDERSON

Banned from Building in Putnam County!


On, May 21st the Putnam County Contractors and Building
Trades Examiners Board permanently revoked for. all time the
privilege of David Montgomery Anderson (d/b/a/
ANDERSON CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN of 6556
Woodland Drive, Keystone Heights, Florida) to ever again
pull a building permit in Putnam County as a contractor,
subcontractor, or under any d/b/a aliases.

The board took this action based on sworn testimony of
Anderson's Financial Misconduct/Injury/Fraud, specifically
for:

1. His failure to pay a court-ordered judgment on the
counts of Fraud, Inducement to Fraud, Breach of
Contract, Unjust Enrichment, and Florida Unfair and
Deceptive Trade Practices.

2. The SWORN TESTIMONY OF FOUR OTHER
WITNESSES (from Putnam, Bradford, Clay;, and "
Alachua counties) who testified under oath that on
four other jobs Anderson had used his contractor
license "as a license to steal... he needs to be stopped
and I mean NOW... he must not be allowed to find
another victim."

The Examiners Board gave their condolences to those who
were "by all evidence defrauded terribly" by Anderson and
then voted unanimously to escalate their discipline from
"indefinite suspension" of his permitting privileges to
"permanent revocation". Board Chairman David Dwyer shid
,that Anderson "does not need to contract in Putnam County or
any other, county in the State of Florida according to what
I've heard, which I believe to be true testimony."

Parents have jobs, and last I
looked, I cannot afford to work
part time. It does not make any
sense to me and maybe you
don't care, but I know the
parents and teachers and
people who don't even have
kids in school have expressed
their disgust with the FCAT

'The letter I received from
the school states, "If you

Susan Walker

BC student
should be
recognized, too
Dear Editor:
I am writing in reference to
the' "KH student is
WhataStar" story and photo in
the Bradford County Telegraph
on June 11, page 10a. The
headline of the story refers to a
Keystone Heights High School
student and the article
highlights Katie Gillard as
being chosen for a WhataStar
by the . WhataBurger
Corporation. It also tells of her
accomplishments at KHHS. I
say, congratulations, Katie.
This letter is not intended to
take anything away from Katie.
However, if you read the photo
caption (not the article), it
stated that a Bradford High
school student, Courtney
Sexton, was also selected as a
WhataStar.
I believe that the reporter (do
not know who since there
wasn't a byline) was very.
'biased "in his/her reporting.
Why is there no mention of
Courtney in tlhie article? What
about her accomplishments?
Just for the record, Courtney
is the reigning Miss Florida
Outstanding Teen. For the
next school year she will be a
junior at BHS. During her
freshman year, Courtney was a
member of the majorette team.
During her freshman and
sophomore years, Courtney
was a m6ml3er of the girls
. weightlifting.a&hbnmand AV,AV |i
cheerleader. She was selected
to be a member of the varsity
cheerleader squad for the
upcoming school year. During
the past school year, she was a
member of the yearbook staff,
Alpha Phi Beta and executive
board secretary of the student
government.
SBeing chosen as a
WhataStar is indeed an honor
for both Katie and Courtney. It
is wonderful that two area
students were chosen out of all
the students in Northeast
Florida. We have great
students in all the area
schools. 1 wouldoe pehi ta-itn
the future the Telegraph would
not be biased on their
reporting of the area school
events and students.
Again, congratulations to
Katie and Courtney.

Parents need to
work with
teachers to
help children
Dear Editor:
I was saddened by the letter
to the editor this week from the
family regarding their
children's experiences in our
school system. Then I could
not help notice the nasty little
vandalism. story 'at the high
school and the resulting in
many hard feelings.
Many people would say,
"What is wrong with our
schools and our kids?" As a
teacher in this system for many
years I can tell you there are
no easy answers. One thing is
certain about our schools, the
more parents get involved with
their kids and our schools the
more success we- can have.
From a teacher's standpoint we
see so many kids who seem to
have nobody who cares about
them or their school work.
This in turn sees many of these
kids with little interest. in.


Most Cars-Inc. Pads


school beyond getting
attention and causing lots of
disruption.
Recently, we have seen
many private schools
aggressively recruiting our
local kids to be a part of that
school experience. I can see
why lots of parents opt for that
situation. Sadly, it takes those
parents and kids we need as
role models and help to have
good public schools.
I I have talked tb local high
school teachers who teach
upper level courses but
complain that even' those kids
do, not want to put forth the
effort to excel and want to just
slide by. Sometimes I think
our culture encourages mostly
a spectator type of attitude
instead of getting involved and
working hard at something.
Schools do have an enormous
task of competing with all the
technological games and
diversions, inundating society
these days.
Kids are bored with school
after all the entertainment
offered by Madison Ave. I see
it more as a family issue than
societal. Families who care
about education and want their
kids to have more options in
adulthood will be more
involved with their " kids'
learning.
I used to think it was the
"prison" effect ' whereby
.parents just thought after high
school my kid can go get a
decent job working at the
prison. But I see 'Union
County kids doing way better
in middle school and high
school and that county is.
almost prison saturated.
What I do know is that many
of our elementary schools are
'working hard at student
achievement and most of the
teachers I associate with care
about their kids and do the
right things. Hampton
Elementary has six A's in a
row, Brooker earned an A last
year and along with .Southside
Elementary. Middle school is
a totally different animal and if
I was leading I would scour the
area to find that great leader
for our middle school who can
;nspire teachers and kids alike.

We do no one justice turning
out mediocrity with so many
good colleges nearby. When
parents begin 'to care more
about reading and math instead
of cheerleading and sports then
we will see the day our kids
start leading the area in
academic achievement.
Please, don't take this as an
attack on the parenting in
Bradford County. We are all in
this together. Most teachers
have kids in our system and
seriously, care about our
schools.
One group can't do it alone.
It will take parents, teachers
and kids getting involved and
working Afard to make our
schools better.
