School uniform standards relaxed, other code changes proposed


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

At a workshop Monday to
discuss proposed changes to the
student code of conduct, most
Bradford County School Board
members agreed on modifications
that will'affect uniforms at the
middle school as well as attire at
other schools.
S The board had previously
agreed to continue the uniform
pilot program at Bradford Middle
School for one more year to
evaluate any possible academic
�or behavioral improvement.
They are loosening up standards
by allowing a wider selection of
colors and allowing shirts to be
worn untucked.
While additional colors
brought no objection, School
Board Member David Smith
argued against allowing shirts
to be untucked. He defended the
uniform concept, saying police
officers don't wear their shirttails
out.
"It's just part of the uniform,
and those shirts are designed to'
be worn in," Smith said.
For other board members,
administrators and the
superintendent, however, the
issue of.shirt tucking was tied
to the self-esteem of overweight
students and the fact that
some disabled students are
unable to wear shirts tucked in.
Superintendent Beth Moore said
requiring overweight students
to tuck in their shirts results in'
drawing more negative attention
to them.
The middle school made case-
by-case exceptions to the tucking
rule last year, which ultimately
led to relaxing the rule for all
students. In the coming year, the
school will still encourage shirts
to be tucked in, but it will not be
required.
To combat shirts or pants from
being worn too long or baggy,
as.a result of the tucking rule,
language was inserted to address
fit.
In the end, the'consensus was
to include the following standards
for the uniform program at the
rniddfldscibo . , ......
* Middle,school stude t's will
wear polo-style shirts that meet
the following criteria:
-All solid colors except
white are permitted. No prints,
stripes, multiple colors or layers
allowed.
-Shirts should have a

maximum of four buttons, and
only the top button may be
unfastened.
-No logos, except for school
sponsored teams or groups that
have the principal's approval.
-Fit should not be too baggy
or too tight. The shirt should
not rise.above the pant waistline
or extend below the top of the
thigh.
* Middle school students will
wear slacks, shorts, capri pants
or skirts that meet the following
criteria:
-Permitted colors are khaki,
black, navy and gray (iew color).
-They will be made of a twill
material. No denim.
-All students may wear
slacks or shorts. Girls may also
wear capris or skirts. In all cases,
garments are to be hemmed to
the knee or below.
-Traditional four pocket or
less styles only. No cargo pants.
-Fit should not be too baggy
or too tight. Garment will be
secured at the waist either by fit
or by belt such that it does not sag
below the waist.
Some changes have been
proposed to' the dress code at
other schools as well. Girls at the
.secondary level will be'allowed
to wear sleeveless shirts again,
for example, so long as those
shirts are not tank tops or have
.spaghetti straps. Of, course halter
or tube tops are not allowed, nor
are midriffs or garments that
show cleavage.
The district is also emphasizing
no tank tops or muscle shirts for
boys.

New seatbelt
law in effect
June 30
Maj. .Anthony Allen,
commander of the Florida
Highway Patrol's Troop G that
covers Nassau, Duval, Clay, St.
Johns, Flagler, Putnam, Baker,
Bradford and TUnion counties,
drew attention to the new
provision to Florida's primary
safety belt enforcement law that
takes effect June 30.


FHP is initiating a statewide
safety belt campaign called"Click.
Florida!" this month to educate
motorists about Florida's safety
belt laws, why it is important to
buckle up, and the Dori.Slosberg
and Katie Marchetti Safety Belt
Law.
"Florida has more than 15
million licensed drivers, plus
millions of visitors every year:'
said Allen "Law enforcement
officers and emergency .workers
have witnessed first-hand the
severe injury and death that can
result from lack of safety belt
use. Crashes can happen anytime,
but by wearing your safety belt,
you can limit your chances
of becoming a traffic-related
statistic. The Florida Highway
Patrol encourages everyone to
buckle up. It could save your
life."

Board member wants to

protect school administrators


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

School Board Memiiber Vivian
Chappell said that school
administrators need more
protection from the board.
Her comments at Monday's
school board meeting came in the
wake of news that the contract for
Bradford High School's principal
would not be renewed.
Chappell said the
superintendent has a right to
let an administrator go with or
without cause, and the board
has done nothing to protect
administrators. Although she said
she had brought up the possibility
of lengthening administrators'
contracts from one to two years
in the past, the idea has been
"shot down" each time.
Still she wants the board to
consider it again.
"I think it's something we need
to look at for protection for our
administrators," Chappell said.
She is also proposing that
administrators bet given notice at
least six month before expiration
whether or not their contracts
will be renewed.
BHS Principal Lisa Graham
was given less than two Week's
notice that her contract would not
be renewed and said the decision
was unexpected.
"I have some concerns there,"
Chappell said. "I just don't, think
we're protecting our employees
the way we should, so I think we
need to look at it as a board."
She said she wanted the
board to workshop these issues
and; at the very least, create a
policy to give administrators six
month's notice so they can look
for employment elsewhere if,
necessary, ,
"I feel in my heart that that's
the right thing to do. Our job
is not to hurt people," she said,
adding that sometimes people do
need to be let go, but they should
be given notice. Otherwise. she
said the board it letting its people
down..' ----.
SuperL'endni t Beth Moore
took issue with the comment,
saying she doesn't, do things
to hurt people but to make the
system work effectively.


While some administrators are
, not out of jobs entirely, they have
been moved into less lucrative
positions.
The board approved behavioral
resource teacher positions,
knowing that assistant principals
would be moved into those
positions. Chappell said they
were not fully aware, however,
of the pay cuts that would be
involved, but she's heard horror
stories.
She said she's heard some
former administrators' salaries
would be cut $10,000 to as much
as $30,000.
. Although she .had asked for
specific details, that information
had not been compiled in time
for the meeting.
Moving administrators into
these teaching positions was
supposed to save money and assist
in implementing the positive
behavior support program.
Chappell said the salary losses
.she's heard about could cause
People to lose their homes,
file bankruptcy or look for
employment elsewhere.
"I know we _ told ' the
superintendent we need t9 cut,
we need to do some things, but
never in my wildest dreams did I
think that our people were going
to be cut like this," she said. "If I
had to take a $30,000 cut in pay,
I'd hate to think where it would
leave me, and I think it's going to
devastate some people.".
Chappell asked if the district
was doing what was best for
kids.
School Board Member Jesse
Moore agreed with Chappell
that the board had not adequately
discussed the plan for; B.RT
positions. He said if that had
happened, the board could have
been.more involved in the issue
of compensation. "
"Sometimes we get to a point
where we have to make some
decisions, and we're kind of
rushed for timn', and we don't plan
the way we should," he said.
Chappell said the. board was
i onsumedwvith'cuttino the budget
and didn't realize the effect doing
away with these administrative
positions would have.
School Board Member David


Smith said part of the issue
was that these individuals were
moving from 12- to 10-month
positions, and he doubted that
anyone was losing as much as
$30,000, although no one at the
meeting could say that for sure.,
Moore said based onAdvancED
Worldwide (accreditation)
standards, few local schools
qualify for full-time assistant
principal positions. Southside
Elementary School qualifies for
a part-time assistant principal,
she said. Bradford Middle School
qualifies for one, though it has
had two in the past. BHS qualifies
for one and a half, though it has
had three in the past.'
"We have been lucky to have
the staff we have had," Moore
said, adding the district is also
lucky it hasn't had to make the
staff cuts other counties have
experienced.
She said she was thankful the
district had positions to offer
these former administrators.
She said even Graham had the
opportunity to apply for another
position in the system.
On another topic, Chappell
raised the issue of school district
employees sending their children
to private schools, questioning
what kind of support that was
showing for local schools. She
didn't question their right to send
their children to other schools,
but she asked, "If you can't
support this school system, who
does?"
Chappell also inquired about
why building replacement at
Southside Elementary had not
begun. Moore said, the project
has been put on the back burner
because of budget cutbacks and
the possibility that money would
be needed elsewhere. The state
has allowed for some capital
funds to be used for operations.
Moore said this will not
necessarily be the case, but it is
a possibility.
Chappell said she didn't want
the project to be on th6 back
burner forever.' -,. '
As for the: workshop on
administrator contracts, that has
been set for Monday, June 27, at
6 p.m.


New rules proposed for water use permits


Water conservation .and
resource protection are two
key focuses of amended water
use rules that Suwannee River
Water Management, District is
proposing. .
The following i's list of'some
of the proposed ruies: ,
*Watering restrictions for
lawn and landscape irrigation-
Homeowners and' businesses
that have an established lawn
and landscape would only be
allowed to water .once weekly
during the months of December
through February and twice
weekly during the months of,
March through November. In
either case, landscape irrigation
would not be permitted between
the hours of 10 a.m.-4 p.m
* Conservation for all users-
Users in each type of water use
class would need to implement a
water conservation plan.. ,
* Conditions for issuance--
In order to obtain a water use
permit, renewal or modification,
the 'proposed use of water'vould
need to meet various conditions,
including the follow% ing: the
use would be reasonable and in
the public interest; it would :not
interfere with any existing legal
use of water; it would not result
in harm to the resource; and it
would not violate state water
quality standards.
* Implementation of alternative
water supply-This would allow
district staff to recommend or
require large, water users to
implement alternative water-
supply when it is feasible:
Alternative water supplies- are
necessary where water sources
are inadequate to meet demands
over the next 20 years.
* Permit duration and five-
year review-This would give
district staff better criteria for
establishing permit duration. It
would also provide a five-year
review of the permit to ensure
better compliance.
* Criteria for water bottling-
Applicants requesting a permit
to bottle water would need to
submit a business, plan, which


would include demonstrating
how much water is needed for
the operation and the demand for
bottled water.
"The district's governing board
approved the publishing of
the proposed water rules at its
monthly meeting on June 9. The
proposed rules are scheduled
for publication in ; Florida
Administrative Weekly in July.
The public will have.21 days after
the proposed rules are published
to object or request a hearing.
The proposed rules may be
obtained by contacting Linda
Welch,' Rules . Coordinator,
SRWMD, 9225 CR 49, Live Oak,

Letters to the Editor


Join the tea
party July 4
Dear Editor:
Starke is going to have a tea
party on July 4, 2009!
The tea party movement is so
much more, and so mudh less,
than what all the politicians and
media pundits want it to be. Our
system of government and those
who live in that political world
have drifted so far away from
America that they are incapable
of recognizing what is really
happening.
It is simply this: a rapidly
growing number of Americans
are fed up. That's it-nothing
more and nothing less.
I We're fed up with politicians
whose only answer to our
problems is to try to spend our
way out of them. We have had
it up to here with politicians
and corporations trying to run
every aspect of our lives for their
benefit. All we ever wanted was to
run our own lives for the benefit
of ourselves and our families.
We're not just fed up. We've
woken up. We've realized that'
the politicians have stopped
spending our money and started
spending our children's money,
our grandchildren's money,
and probably even our great-
grandchildren's money. The
politicians should have realized
that once we got wise to this, we
wouldn't like it one bit. Every
parent wants their child to have
it better than they did.
We invite any and all people
who are also "fed up" to join
the tea party, gathering in front
of the Old Armory on U.S. 301,
across from the Bradford High
School, on the morning of July
4,' from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. What better wNay for you
and your family to celebrate
our Independence Day than to
make your stand for the values
and freedoms we want back.
Also remember that the ',ballot
b3ox' will be our way to speak
next year and you can only then
speak with your vote. If you are
,oit yet registered to vote, come
to the tea party on the 411' of July
and register for the party of your
choice or as an independent. We
will have a table set tp for that
purpose.
By the way, we are not
Republican and we are not
conservative. ' Sure, many
individuals in the tea party


Roadside-,

produce

stands

offer direct-

marketing

option for

small farms
Jim DeValerio,
Bradford County agricultural
extension agent
The roadside produce stand is
one of the best-known options for
'small farmers looking to sell their
wares directly to the public.
Although the concept is old
and maybe even quaint, it can be
very effective. Consumers want
farm-fresh fruits and'vegetables
and many of them are eager to get
a momentary sense of connection
to a working farm.
Bradford County, in Northeast
Florida, is one of the state's
smaller counties in terms of'
geographic area and population,
but our agricultural community
has a strong tradition of direct
marketing. Currently we have
10 roadside stands, eight of them
along the busiest thoroughfare
through the county, U.S. 301.
We can take some lessons
from these businesses that
could be useful to small farmers
elsewhere.
First, you don't have to operate
a roadside stand to sell your crops.
at one. Many proprietors are
eager to buy produce from other
Local farmers. That's especially
true if you offer specialty items
other local growers don't.
Second, quality is everything.
Often, consumers are attracted
to roadside stands.because they
believe they can find fresher items
there than in the supermarket,
So be selective and offer freshly
harvested items, culling out crops
with noticeable defects.
For those operating roadside
stands, keep these things in
mind:


movement are, but many are
Democrats and many of us are
liberals, too. Many of us belong to
third parties or none at all. And,
frankly, quite a large number of
us reject all those labels. We've
started to realize that labels like
liberal' and 'conservative' don't
describe any reality we live in
and are only used in the media to
keep us fighting with each other.
Let's fight together.

Be aware of

mosquitoes

during summer
Dear Editor:
There is an organization
called BuzzBusters that helps
volunteer with mosquito control
for IFAS Bradford County
Extension office by collecting
adult mosquitoes in light traps
located near certain, areas in
zones. Mosquitoes collected
so far have been identified as
aedes aeygtii found near tires
and houses, ochlerataus alanticus
and psorophora species' found
near floodwaters and Anopheles
species fund near low creeks.
aedes species have been known
to cause fevers, psorophora
are sometimes carriers of dog
heartworm and . Anopheles
species in the past are carriers of
malaria..
Further information can be
found at AMCA, FMCA, or
Bradford County Extension
IFAS Web sites on mosquitoes,
diseases, and various IPM ways
to eliminate the mosquitoes.
The mosquito populations
have increased slightly with
ocherlatus alanticus,aedes vexans
and psorophora and Anopheles
as floodwaters increase due to
heavy rains. A marked decrease
of aedes albopictus and aedes
aegypti are found in areas treated
with BTI and oil treatments, but
they show an, increase in areas
not treated specially near tires
and containers near houses.
S , - mpltease, homeowners, dump
all containers of;standing water
and report clogged and overflow
ditches to the road department.
Empty all pet dishes and bird
baths and trash cans of water at
least once a day. Slosh out water
in spare tires. Wear Deet at night
or other insect repellant. Use'
caution if you have a commercial
mister. Commercial mosquito


* If'you're a grower it may be
a good idea to put the stand on
your farm property. The presence
of crops growing on location
can help attract customers. Two
of Bradford ,county's roadside
stands are set up this way, both
of them prominently displaying
trophies garnered by their prize-
winning strawberries.
* Consumers are looking for a
pleasant experience, not just good
produce. That means making
sure your employees are friendly,
your facilities are clean and your
prices are competitive.
* Prominent signs are
important, so that prospective
customers know about' your
.stand before they reach it, and.
recognize it when they arrive.
* Provide ample off-road
parking, so that drivers can easily
enter and leave your premises.
* If you're getting started,
check applicable state and local
laws to ensure that you comply
with their requirements.
Your county extension office
can help with further tips.
Half of Bradford County's
roadside stands have been open
between seven and 20 years,
proving that' this business
model can work, provided your
location offers a steady flow of
potential customers. According
to the Florida Department of
Transportation, 20,000 people
see these stands every day as
they pass by on U.S. 301.
On Aug. 1-2, the first Florida
Small Farms and Alternative
Enterprises Conference will be
held at Osceola Heritage Park
in Kissimmee. The event will
feature exhibitors, educational
sessions and more. All Florida
farmers are invited to attend.
Visit the conference Web
site at smallfarms.ifas.ufl.edu/
floridasmallfarmsconference/
index.htm. For information
on conference sponsorship or
being an exhibitor, contact Bob
Hochmuth, (386) 362-1725 or
hobhoch@ufl.edu.


misters can increase resistance of
mosquitoes if applied near water
or cause increase in a different
and more harmful species. Keep
children away from the mosquito
spray truck when.it is dispensing
the fog. Enjoy the' Florida
sunshine but keep safe, too.

City residents

should say no

to new taxes
Dear Editor:
We, city residents, say no to
new taxing authority requested
by the city clerk, Linda Johns.
As a resident of the city, it is
easy for me to be an "armchair
referee" without knowing the
monumental task the city must
,have trying to make a budget
work in these difficult economic.
times.
It is in these difficult times that
our fellow patrons will be tested;
will we pull together somehow or
will we work against one another
into a downward spiral.
I can certainly imagine that it
must be very frustrating for-the
city clerk to be unable to collect
fines from property owners who
are violating city ordinances. I
would ask the city clerk to keep
in mind that property owners are
under increasing pressures from
all sides; for example, a macro
economy that is out of balance;
real estate prices falling, incomes
falling and expenses rising on
just about every front. It seems
that everyday I go to the grocery
store I see the price of food rising
faster and faster. ---'
One of the problems
associated with what may seem
to be a harmless new ability to
collect taxes is that it can open
loopholes from which the city
can take on Draconian powers to
collect money. I see the new car
the city has that drives around
patrolling with the letters Code
Enforcement written on it. It
looks more ke a pol ice car,,
Please, let's not 'go the way 'of
heavy-handed police powers by
the city to collect fees. If budgets
are a problem, then perhaps the
city needs to find ways of cutting
positions and if necessary find a
remedy of .doing away with the
city charter and be absorbed by
the county.

Growers

offered

organic

transition

assistance
Florida Organic Growers is
ramping up efforts to provide
free technical assistance to
farmers transitioning to organic
production as recent reports
indicate continued strong growth
in U.S. organic sales and strong
consumer preference for organic
products.
Despite the overall weakening
economy, U.S. sales of organic
products grew 17.1 percent
to $24.6 billion by the'end of
2008, according to the Organic
Trade Association 2009 Organic
Industry Survey.
FOG's Organic Transition
Program allows qualifying
farmers to work' for free with an
experienced organic production-
crop advisor. The advisor, FOG
staff and allied professionals
assist with challenges faced
by , transitioning growers and
provide information about
organic production, marketing,
regulations and certification.
"We want Florida farmers
to benefit from an organic
marketplace that continues Ito
expand," said FOG Executive
Director Marty Mesh.
Findings from the OTA's study
show that 31 percent of surveyed
families are purchasing more
organic foods compared with a
year ago. Many families reported
reducing spending in other areas
to avoid cutting back on organic
food purchases. Seventeen
percent of families said their
largest increases in spending in
the past year were for organic
products.

Transition Program or to learn

Road prior

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The county is going to
workshop roadwork priorities
in the aftermath of rains that
washed many dirt roads or left
them otherwise impassable.
Citizen Jeff Ledger presented
slides that illustrated the road
issues in Strawberry Acres
(Northeast 2041" Street between
Starke and Lawtey) and how
even lime rock repeatedly used
to stabilize the road was just
washing away because there
isn't a proper ditch and drainage
system to keep storm water off
the road.
The water also accumulates on
private property because there is
nowhere else for it to go, Ledger
said. The standing water has
increased mosquito problems:
Strawberry Acres was just one
of the neighborhoods affected
during recent downpours. Day
after day of rain in May was
especially tough on unpaved
roads in the county, such as Carter
Road'/Northeast 227"h Street,
which is partially inside and
outside the Lawtey City limits
andc- additionally problematic
because anrt incomplete sewer
project left the road in disrepair.
Both Ledger and resident John
Bloom of Carter Road, in a letter
to the county manager, argued
that the number of people living
on their roads and the amount of
taxes that come from those areas
warranted action on the part of
the county commission.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
agreed that population should
play a role in which roads are
determined to be priorities for
paving.---According-to him, the
county's priority road plan is
flawed because it does not take
population into consideration.
"There's one thing we need
to really accentuate, and that
is we can't give our residents
everything they want, but we
ought to make a concerted effort
to give them a good road to travel
on, whether it's dirt, lime rock or
paved',"Chaidler said "


cities to be examined


Chairman Doyle Thomas
said as soon as the area was dry
enough, the road department
would be pulling ditches and
performing culvert work' in
Strawberry Acres. The county
manager has promised Carter
Road residents that the city and
county would work together on
road maintenance, including
sharing the cost of lime rock to
improve the road.
There were many impassable
dirt roads in the county during
the rainy weather-so bad that
school buses did not go down
those roads for two days. County
staff worked overtime trying
to repair roads, often fighting a
losing battle because rain would
begin again after roadwork
was completed-and it was
happening all over the county.
County workers and officials also
labored trying to get residents in
and out of their neighborhoods
during the worst of the weather.
Ledger and others have
expressed gratitude for this
assistance.
According to Emergency
Management Director Brian
Johns, rainfall amounts varied
widely around the county.
Eighteen, inches were measured
in Theressa in May (7 inches so
far in June). .Starke was around
8.5 'inches in May (5.5 inches so
far this month). In Lawtey the
figure was 12 inches in May (6
inches in June), and there were
even reports of more than 22
inches in the Keystone Heights
area in May, Johns said.
The road workshop is
tentatively planned to follow the
board's 9:30 a.m. meeting 'on
Monday, July 6.
In other business:
* Commissioner Eddie Lewis
at the board's instruction found
a source of sand to fill potholes
from a borrow pit on Rayonier
land as a more affordable
alternative to lime rock. There
were questions about the
additional cost of insurance for
county vehicles (Rayonier wants
a higher level of coverage than
the county receives):. '
.^4a


Commissioner John Wayne
Hersey was uncomfortable with
proceeding without knowing
the full cost.to the county, but
the board voted 4-1 to allow the
chairman and manager to execute
a contract if the 'additional
insurance cost combined with the
cost of the sand does not exceed
the price the county could get the
sand for from another source,.
*, The county attorney briefly.
outlined the board's options .
regarding a dispute with Florida
Highway Products, which the
county contracted with to pave
three roads using the chip seal
process.
The county was unhappy with
the results of work on the initial
road, so County Attorney Terry
Brown said the commission
has three potential options for
resolving the dispute: mutually
agreeing to dissolve the current
contract; paying FHP for the
work to date, after which the
contractor would convert the chip
seal road to traditional asphalt at
additional cost; or pay FHP, have
the previous road paved with
asphalt, then allow FHP to pave
the remaining two roads using
asphalt, again at additional cost.
These three roads- Northwest
180th Street (Rising Road),
Southwest 1611 Street (Wiley
Kelly Road) and the remainder
of Northwest 1851" Street (Mark
Lee Starling Road)-were the
final three roads on the current
priority list.
The county is going to review,
the cost of each proposal offered
by FHP's attorney before
proceeding.

Senior center underfunded


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

While the county still has the
$500,000 it received from the
state Department of Elder Affairs
to help construct a senior citizens
center, additional funding has not
come through, leaving questions
about how the county should
proceed.
The total estimated cost of
the project as planned is $1.4
million, which includes building
a new facility on county-owned
property behind' the health
department.
Angela Macey is the county's
community development director
and the commission's liaison to a
citizen committee that has been
working on the senior center
project.
Macey said the county could
modify the. . project without
risking its funding award, but
there is an absolute deadline for

Bradford's invasive .plants

when that award must be spent-
Dec. 31,2011.
That gives the county about
two and a half years to raise
additional money or modify
the project to come within the
existing budget.
* One option not open for
discussion is borrowing
additional funds, but other
avenues for funding the center
as proposed may exist. Macey
said the county ,could wait to
secure other funding, although
the impact of. the economy on
the state budget has reduced the
likelihood that additional money
will be available.
Another option is to downsize
the project. The county could
save costs by abandoning plans
harden the building to serve as
a special needs shelter when
weather conditions require
evacuation, although that was
to be a major advantage of the
structure.

although that means dropping
plans to use existing county
property, which was serving as
a sizable in-kind match to the
current award.

Florida Power and Light's proposed 300-mile pipeline begins near Brooker and
traversed Bradford County along existing right of way.


FPL sheds more light on pipeline project


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Florida Power and Light
followed up on a recent public
meeting by discussifig a proposed
pipeline project with the county
commission last week.
The pipeline will provide
natural gas for the generation of
electricity.
.Dave Cobb, external affairs
manager for FPL for north
Florida,, said the company has
been using natural gas more
and more because of its price;
domestic availability and its
cleaner burning properties.
"We're able to build some very
efficient, clean-burning power
plants with it," Cobb said.
Current... projects include
rebuilding two 1960s-era power
plants, replacing the oil-fired
plants with combined-cycle
plants that use natural gas.
Their efficiency will allow FPL
to further reduce fuel costs and
environmental impacts, Cobb
said.
One of the plants is in Palm
Beach County '(Riviera Beach),
and the other is Brevard County
(Cape Canaveral).
Fueling these plants requires
an expansion of FPL's access to
natural gas.
There are two lines serving
FPL. One,' the Florida Gas
.Transmission' line. currently
passes through Brooker. The
Gulf Stream line comes through
the Gulf and extends to Tampa.
FPL is the major customer served
by both of those lines, and both
lines are at capacity, Cobb said.


WATER
Continued from Page 3A

is occurring in a wide area that
includes southeast Georgia and
the- Jacksonville metropolitan
area, and appears to be creeping
westward into the Upper Santa
Fe River Basin.
The basin lies within the
SRWMD and includes portions
of Baker, Columbia, Bradford,
Union and Alachua counties.
"The drawdown may impact
the health of the natural systems
and future water supplies in the
basin," Carlos Herd, SRWMD
water supply project manager,
told the audience.
Among those attending the
meeting were representatives
from local governments, utilities,


FPL is also concerned about
the security of lines, which
come from the upper Gulf
coast. Weather events threaten
supply interruption, so the new
proposed line will not only serve
the needs of the new plants but
also improve reliability of FPL's
system.
"We have in the last two years
lost that supply at times and
created some problems on our
generation side," Cobb said. " -.
The new pipeline will draw
its natural gas supply from
Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas,
reducing the state's dependence
on natural gas from the Gulf of
Mexico.
For that reason, the project
has been dubbed the "Florida
EnergySecure Line."
Proposed is a pipeline from
Bradford to Palm Beach County
built by FPL. A third party would
construct a pipeline that would
bring the natural gas to Bradford
County where, it would tie into
FPL's new line.
The $1.5 billion FPL pipeline
will cross 14 counties primarily
utilizing existing FPL right of way
corridors. This will minimize the
impact on personal properties,
Cobb said. In Bradford County,
the route will follow the existing
Florida Gas Transmissi6n from
Brooker, across the county.
Inj ll.the underground pipeline
" ill stretch nearly 300 miles, and
also requires a new compressor
station to be built near Brooker.
Seventeen of those miles lie in
Bradford County.
Part of selling the projectrhas
been highlighting the economic


regional planning councils,
environmental consultants, and
special interest groups.
Both water management
districts are in the process of
developing individual water
supply plans for areas within
their boundaries. But the districts
are coordinating to make sure
their plans reflect the regional
nature of groundwater levels and
withdrawals.
The water supply plan for
the Upper Santa Fe River Basin
is scheduled for adoption by
the SRWMD governing board
in December 2010. Once the
plan has been adopted, local
governments in the basin will
have 18 months to incorporate
alternative water supply projects
into their comprehensive plans.
The SRWMD also is assessing


impact. Over 40 'years, it is
expected to result in around $19.5
million in county property taxes,
$16.2 million in school property
taxes, and almost $1 million in
taxes to the water management
district.
According to FPL,construction
will result in the creation of 215
jobs, $9.6 million in direct wages
and a direct economic impact
of $31.2 million ($46.5 million
indirect).
To proceed, Cobb said FPL
is trying to obtain a certificate.
of need from the Florida Public
Service Commission, which will
be based on proven need for the
project as well as a demonstration
that the best way to meet that
need has been chosen.
That is expected by late July.
After the certificate of need
is issued, theh the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection will become involved
in collecting input before the
project ultimately goes to the
governor and cabinet for final
approval. When the corridor
is approved, FPL will go
about obtaining the necessary
easements, Cobb said.
"It's a long and time consuming
process with a lot of opportunities
for input," said Cobb, who works
in 10 north Florida counties.
Construction is planned
to begin 'late in 2012 and be
complete in 201-1.

other water bodies in order to
evaluate future water supply
needs. The state's five water
management districts are
statutorily required to have plans
in place to meet water supply
demands over the next 20 years.
The SJRWMD water supply
plan for the northeast region is
also scheduled for adoption in
December 2010. The St. Johins
and Suwannee districts will host"'
a series of joint public meetings to
allow opportunities for the public
to participate in the planning
process prior to adoption of the
plans.
The next public meeting is set
for July 9. Times and locations

The original town of Lake Butler consisted
of 40 acres in a 25-block radius with the
courthouse square in the middle.
According to Union County historian Marjorie
Dlriggers, three different stories have circulated
about how Lake Butler came to being, two of
which contain only half-truths.
Story one was that when the United States
purchased Florida
in 1819.Governor
Andrew Jackson I ~
was concerned
about Seminole - 1
SIndians who Ril R T
roamed and ..
plundered on the -

battle, Butler was Jj-: ---- -"

as well as Indians.
The surviving
soldiers buried
their comrades I. i
on the shores of
the lake, which 'r
u they named Lake --1 r
Butler. * '"*t-3RD
S The second
incorrect story
was that Thomas A. Bradford purchased a
40-acre plot of land from the United States in,
1859, land that is known today as the original
boundaries lines of Lake Butler.
'Driggers said Lake.Butler's roots do.date
back to 1859, making this yeai the 1505t
anniversary of its existence. But the true history
is a bit different from the two tales above.
In 1859, New River County was formed and
encompassed what is known today as Bradford,
Baker and Union counties. From Tallahassee,
GovernorAndrew Jackson sent the first surveyor
general of Florida, Colonel Robert Butler, to the
area to survey a stretch of land located just
about center of then-New River County to serve
as the county seat. That land was the original
boundaries of Lake Butler; comprised of 40
acres spread throughout 25 square city blocks
with the courthouse in the center.
The first Lake Butler post office was opened
f in 1860. Th6.Civil War stalled the growth and
:; prosperity of Lake Butler until 1890, when the
;, Georgia-Southern and Florida Railroad crossed
i through with a depot in Lake Butler. It was then
. that the town grew and was incorporated as a
city in 1893.

Worthington Springs.
After the boll weevil struck the Sea Island
cotton fields in 1918, cattle, lumber and food
crop production expanded throughout what is
now Union County. Raiford became the center
of lumberand naval stores, Worthington Springs


became a popular resort on the Santa Fe River,
Providence was a stage stopover and, in 1913, a
state prison was established near Raiford.
The town of Lake Butler contained -only
dirt roads and trails until. 1928, when S.R. 100
,was paved. Sewer and water lines were first
installed between 1928 and 1929.
The street light at Main Street and Lake
Avenue at the courthouse marks the center of
pioneer Lake Butler, dividing the town info
four sections: northwest, northeast, southeast
and southwest. Years ago, the streets were given
family names as opposed to numbered names as
they are today.
Early pioneer settlers in Lake Butler included
the sir names Prevatt, York, Croft, McKinney,
Dekle and Epperson, to name a few.
Interestingly, Union County has been a part
of six different counties throughout the years:
St. Johns (1,821-1822), Duval (1822-1828),
Alachua (1828-1832), Columbia (1832-1859),
New Riv.er(1859-1861), Bradford (1861-1921),
before being named Union County (chosen to
reflect unity) in 1921.

UC eligible for farm relief


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Union County is among 11
counties expected to receive
agricultural disaster relief for
farmers. On June 19, Gov.
Charlie Crist requested disaster
relief funds from United States
Department of Agriculture
Secretary Tom Vilsack.
In May, Union County
Extension Director Jacque
Breman gave a crop report to
USDA to ensure local farmers
would be included as needing
disaster relief due to heavy
rainfall that destroyed many
crops.
"May has normally been
one of our driest months
when we harvest commercial


vegetables such as beans,
squash, cucumbers, melons and
peppers," Breman said.
"In order to prevent growth
cracks, splitting, disease and
other blemishes that make
produce unacceptable to
consumers, Union County
farmers needed a consistent
supply of moisture as vegetables
matured."
What Breman said they didn't
need was for the heavy rainfalls
to deliver so much in such
a short period of time. Many
areas experienced significant
rainfall in excess of 24 inches
in a 10-day period.
"This has been tough on
vegetable growers who are
in the harvest stage and have
crops on wet Flatwoods soils
under root stress for oxygen,


reducing the total yield and
quality of the produce,"' said
Breman.
Beef cattle producers have
rejoiced at the rainfall that
has brought the growth of
pasture grass back for grazing,
and drought conditions
had adversely affected hay
producers who needed rainfall
following March fertilizing to
stimulate to growth of Spring
grass.
Crops hit hard by theexcessive
rain and flash flooding included
potatoes, watermelon, bell
peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupes,
cucumbers and butter beans.
According to Gov. Crist's
letter to Vilsack, 11 of Florida's
counties meet the threshold fora

on the purchase of a home.
-The program is part of the
federal government's economic
stimulus program.
"The new credit can get
money in the pockets of first-
time homebuyers quickly,"
said IRS Commissioner Doug
Shulman. "For people who
recently purchased a home or
are considering buying in the
next few months, there are
several different ways that they
can get this tax credit even if
they've already filed their tax
return."
Legislation directs the
Florida Housi'ng Finance
Corporation to distribute funds
for the program to local cities
and counties through the State
Housing Initiatives Partnership,
or SHIP program.
In the past, local government
SHIP dollars have been made
available to help families with
low and moderate- incomes
obtain affordable housing that
might otherwise be unavailable
to them. Some SHIP dollars'
were also earmarked to assist
with emergency, repairs for
single-family homeowners.
Beginning. July 1 , those
who qualiCy' for the up to
$8,000 first-time homebuyer
tax .credit can apply for down
payment assistance through
their local SHIP program office
in Bradford, Union or Clay
counties, then repay the amount
borrowed upon receipt of their


tax refund.
In Bradford, Union and
Clay. each county has been
allocated $315,000 to assist
homebuyers. This opens the
door for roughly 39 first-time
homebuyers in each, county to
receive approximately $8,000
in down payment assistance.
When the federal program
.expires on Dec. 1, unspent
money earmarked for the
FloridaHomebuyerOpportunity
Program will revert back to
SHIP, providing assistance to
low-income households.

How the program works
First-time homebuyers can
take advantage of the new
federal tax credit if purchasing
a residence between Jan. I and
Dec. 1 of this year.
First-time homebuyers
purchasing a home of any
kind-new or.a resale-that
will serve as their principal
residence will qualify for the
tax credit. This includes single-
family homes, town homes,
condominiums, mobile homes
and houseboats.
Homebuyers must use
the residence as a principal
residence for at least three
years or face recapture of the
tax credit amount.
. The law defines a first-time
homebuyer as a buyer who has
not owned a principal residence
during the three-year period
prior to the purchase. The tax
credit is equal to 10 percent
of the home's purchase price
up to a maximum of $8.000.
The income limit for single tax
filers is $75,000 and $150,000
for married taxpayers filing a
joint return.
Homebuyers should complete
IRS Form 5405 to determine
their tax credit amount, then
claim this amount on Line 69
of their 1040 income tax return.
You cannot claim the credit for
an intended purchase at some
future date.
If you purchased a home in
early 2009 and have already
filed to receive the tax credit on
your 2008 return, consult your
tax advisor to find out how you
can claim the new $8,000 tax
credit by filing an amended
2008'tax return with a 1040X


form.
In addition, prospective
homebuyers who believe they
qualify for the tax credit are
permitted to reduce their income
tax withholding, enabling the
buyer to accumulate cash by
raising his/her take home pay.
This money can then be applied
to the down payment.,Buyers
should adjust their withholding
amount on their W-4 via their
employer.
HUD also has announced
it will allow FHA-approved
lenders to issue short-term
loans to advance the credit
amount for use in purchasing
the home.
Complete details of the
program are still being worked
out.

opportunity program, contact

Paye 10A TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR-Al.SlCTION June 256 2009


Summer gardens help save-family budget
BY RUTH MICHEL and ashes from their burn pile. quantities of rain that
Special to the Monitor Joseph said he had learned have ruined farmers' -'A
h w to care for marni different cronnv s*'7 S...-.


Joseph Cook, 13, rubs the
dirt off two toy soldiers he has
rescued from the soil as he
points to the garden area that
was once a shooting range and
a burn pile.
The Cook family planted
their garden in late April as
a money-saver and learning
experience, said Daniel Cook,
15.
In a struggling economy,
gardening is a growing trend
for many families in addition
to the Cooks. According to a
study conducted by the National
'Gardening Association, 31
percent ofAmerican households
grew produce in 2008, and 37
percent of households plan
to garden in 2009. This is
a projected increase of seven
million households planting
fruits, vegetables, herbs or
berries.
Chrliy Falana, the lawn and
garden manager at Bryan's
Ace Hardware in Melrose, said
customers are still trying to buy
vegetables even though they
should have been in the ground
by May. Vegetable plant sales
have increased 25-50 percent
and seed packets are leaving
the shelves fast.
Daniel said his family bought
tomato and.pepper plants at Ace
,and grew the rest from seeds.
Their friend Tim Huggins
tilled the 10'x20' plot in their
backyard near Immokalee
Road. They added cow manure


plants at once. In the past he
had only grown sunflowers. He
pointed to the tomato plants
and said his dad taught him to
attach them to stakes to keep
them off the ground.
"As far as learning goes it's
been a success," Daniel said,
but they would have saved
more if they had planted more.
Joseph said he would enjoy
eating fresh and saving a few
bucks. The Cooks don't always
buy fresh green beans and other
vegetables.
Elizabeth Cook shops for
groceries for her nine children.
She is still adjusting to rising
produce prices. "I've noticed
what used to be the regular
price is now the, sale price."
she said.
She said her home schooled
children haye shown an interest
in gardening and are. more
likely to eat what they grow.
"If it goes well, and they keep
up the work, we'll make it a
routine."
When she does buy
vegetables, Elizabeth said
she makes a stop at Keystone
Heights Produce because of its
low prices.
Josie Hernandez and her
husband Tony have run the fruit
and vegetable, stand on S.R.
21 for five years. Josie said
prices have gone up and blames
the recent hikes on the large


"It's expensive
and you hardly find
anything good," she
said. "See how the
tomatoes look? They
look like they're no
good because the rain
makes them yellow."
Josie said she hopes
prices will go down if
the rain is, moderate
but expects them to
stay the same.
Prices have limited
what customers put in
their basket, but Josie
said there are other
factors. Customers
with gardens buy less. .
If they grow tomatoes, � '.
yellow squash or ,,.
cucumbers at home,
they won't buy them
from her.
Falana from Ac'e lt'
said growing organic /]-
produce from a A t
pesticide-free garden
is another allure to
gardeners.This healthy
habit is also bringing
back bartering. Lettuce
is being swapped for
zucchini.
Falana called
gardening an investment and
emphasized the importance of
getting the "dirt right" with
fertilizers, and compost. "It's
worth putting the money into
the soil," she said.
The first year might n1ot yield


Joseph and Daniel Cook tend the family garden.


impressive savings, but she said
an established garden would
lower the total on a food bill.
Right now the Cooks' tomato
branches are weighed down by
unripe spheres. Their zucchini
is in yellow bloom, and the
green squash pokes out in


miniature form.
Joseph has plans for the plot
of soil. He said he wants to
move the mulch pile that lines
the garden and back fence.Then
he will expand the perimeter.
With the new space, he said he
hopes to plant corn.


Joseph and his siblings talk
eagerly about their project.
They take turns watering each
day and walk between the
horizontal rows to check on the
vegetation's progress. He said,
"It's fun, especially eating out
of it."


Be aware of summer


In the United States, there
are an estimated 25 million
lightning flashes each year.
During the past' 30 years,
lightening killed an average
of 66 people per year, more
than the average of 65 deaths
per; year caused by tornadoes.
Yet because lightning usually
claims only one or two victims
at a time and does not cause
mass destruction of property,
it is underrated as a risk. While
documented lightning injuries in
the United States average about
300 per year; undocumented
injuries are likely much higher.
Thunderstorms are most
likely to develop on spring
or summer days but can occur
year round.
Lightning can strike as far as
10 miles from the area where
it is raining. That's about the


distance you can hear thunder.
If you can hear thunder, you are
within striking distance. Seek
safe shelter immediately.
,Use the 60-30 rule:..where
visibility is good and there is
nothing obstructing your view
of the thunderstorm. When
you 'see' 'ightning, count the
seconds until you hear thunder.
If that time is 30 seconds or
less, the thunderstorm is within
six miles and is dangerous.
Seek shelter immediately. The
threat of lightning continues for
much longer than most people
realize. Wait at least 30 minutes
after the last clap of thunder
before leaving shelter. Don't
be fooled by sunshine or blue
sky, If it is cloudy or objects
such as buildings or mountains
are obscuring your vision, get
.inside immediately. It is always


safer to take precautions than
to wait.
Most lightning deaths and
injuries occur in the summer.
Where organized outdoor
sports activities take place,
coaches, camp counselors and
other adults must stop activities
at the first roar of thunder to
ensure everyone time to get
to a large building or enclosed
vehicle. Leaders of outdoors
events should have a written
plan that all staff are aware of
and enforce.
Inside buildings, stay off
corded phones, computers and
other electrical equipment that
put you in direct contact with
electricity or plumbing. Buy
ground fault protectors for key
equipment. Follow the 30-30
rule and stop activities at the
first clap thunder and wait


ghtning
30 minutes until after the last
thunder strike.
If a person is struck by
lightning, call 911 and get
medical care immediately.
Cardiac arrest and irregularities,
burns, and nerve, damage are
common in cases where people
arestruck by lightning. However,
with proper treatment,including
CPR if necessary, most victims
survive a lightning strike. You
are in no danger when helping
a lightning victim. The, charge
will not affect you.
With common sense, you can
greatly increase your safety and
the safety of those you are with.
At the first clap of thunder,
go to a large building or fully
enclosed vehicle and wait 30
minutes after the last clap of
thunder to go back outside.


Fallen tree destroys vehicles in KH


S.R. 100 residents Keith
and Deena Collins were in
Miami visiting family last
week when on June 18, a
large oak tree fell in their yard
during a noontime storm.


No one was home and the
tree missed the house; but
as it landed, it took out four
automobiles and a boat.
A friend of Keith's called
to tell them about it, followed


.by other friends.
Deena called to ask her
son, also named Keith, to
go from Jacksonville to
Keystone Heights to look
at the wreckage. * Keith's
girlfriend, Courtney Theisen,
drove over when the weather
cleared and relayed the
message that things looked
pretty bad.
Son Keith later told his
parents that it was the biggest
tree in the yard. Over the
next five days the family-


including family members
from Miami-and the kids'
friends helped remove the
tree.
The Collins' home
insurance would lave covered
damages to the house, but not
to vehicles in the yard.
The Collins' auto insurance
didn't cover this type of
damage either. It was an act
of nature, they were told.
Two of the vehicles didn't
even belong to the Collins.
Estimated damages are
$10,000 to $15,000.

Moddy chosen grand


marshal of KH parade


The Our Country Day Committee has
announced Chester E. Moody as the 2009
grand marshal of the July 4th parade.
Ten years prior to moving to Keystone
Heights, Moody served in the Army Corps.
(1942-1943) as a radar technician on the
DEW LINE in Canada. This experience
made him know that he belonged in warm
weather and Keystone Heights was just the
right place.
Moody and his wife Edwina have been
Keystone Heights residents since 1952.
At that time Moody was working. at
Mainside, Naval Air Station in Jacksonville
as a fireman. He worked there until he retired
in 1960. He helped support the Keystone
Heights Volunteer Fire Department.
Throughout the years, there were many
meals that were not eaten and many nights
when Moody didn't get a full night's sleep--
because whenever the siren went off, he left
to help folks in need.
As a fireman he saw too many children
in distress because they couldn't swim. So
he became a supporter of the YMCA Camp
Immokalee summer swimming program. All
of his children went from Minnows to
Senior Life Saving in the program. He was
one crafty guy because he used the incentive
of learning how to ski to get .kids to learn
how to swim first. He told them that once
they had learned how to swim, he would
teach them how to ski. He taught more than
200 children to ski and after they learned,
they got to add their name to his Ski Book.
As the lakes began drying up (the second
time) Moody, Edwina ,and many others
became activists with the Lake Brooklyn
Civic Association (LBCA).
This organization took on the St. Johns


RiverWaterManagement District(SJRWMD)
and the state of Florida, requesting answers
about the absence of water flowing into the
chain of lakes which includes Brooklyn
Lake, Keystone Lake, and Lake Geneva.
Moody and Rodney Bamford used video
cameras and found that water was being
diverted away from Alligator Creek, which
flows into the chain of lakes.
Everyone was affected by the loss of
water. The LBCA succeeded when Governor
Lawton Chiles ruled in favor of the citizens
of Keystone Heights for maintaining the
lakes.
Many children are recognized for -their
good grades but Moody felt that well-rounded
students who aren't necessarily scholars also
need to be recognized. Moody reinitiated the
Golden B Award, which recognizes students
from each grade at Bradford High School for
being outstanding citizens.
Moody raised all three 6of his children,
Lynda Gayle, Chester E, and Carolyn Jean,
in Keystone Heights. During their school
days there were two classes in one room and
it only went up to the eighth grade. When it
was time for the children to go to high school
they travelled to Green Cove Springs.
Keystone Heights area parents got together
and bought a school bus so the children
could attend Bradford High School in Starke,
allowing the children more opportunities
with their studies, sports and other after
school activities.
Moody has lived his life giving to and.
helping others, a practice which he calls "the
spirit of Keystone Heights." Throughout his
life he served his community and country-a
true example of the American spirit.


Back in the saddle for summer fun im


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Horse riders with pioneering
spirit who would like to ride
where no horse has been ridden
before are invited to join a Rails
to Trails ride on Wednesday,
July 1. Meet at 7:30 a.m.; the
ride leaves Twin Lakes Park at
8:30 a.m..
There is no problem with
accessibility. Approximately
one mile of the trail is paved
with plenty of unpaved shoulder


to ride on and the remaining 20
miles of the trail has most of
the ballast, or large rocks the
railroad used-, still-encased in-
sand And clay.
Approximately 10 people
are currently scheduled to ride,
including one Florida cracker
cowboy in his 70s and his
wife. County. Commissioner
Chereese Stewart and some of
her Middleburg High Sohool
FFA students are also scheduled
to hit the trait.


The ride begins at the Twin
Lakes Park off S.R. 100 east
of Keystone Heights and heads
toward Palatka. The distance
of the ride will be determined
by weather "and the saddle
worthiness of the group's
posteriors." There are plenty.
of parking spaces for.trailers in
the county park and there is a
hitching post. Bring your own
water buckets and hay or feed
accommodations.

among us?
Bible Answer: 1 Corinthians 1:12-13, 10 Now I say this, that each of you
says, "I am of Paul," or "I am ofApollos," "I am of Cephas," or "I am of
Christ." Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you
baptized in the name of Paul? Now I PLEAD with you, brethren, by the
name of our Lord Jes Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that
there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together
in the same mind and in the same judgement.

GRADES:
Continued from p. 1A

2007. For the first time ever,
the school received an "A" for
the 2008-2009 school year.
Assistant Principal Jerry
Graybeal said that at Lake
Butler Middle School, they)
are extremely proud of the
outstanding accomplishments
of the students, teachers and
staff. He offered his thanks
to the community, parents,
students and district office for
providing the needed resources
and support to reach this goal.
Lake Butler Elementary
School maintained mostly a"B"
.from 1998-2003. Beginning


with the 2004 school year,
LBES has remained an "A"
school for five years running.
When receiving the school
grade information, LBES
Principal Lynn Bishop said,
"We are so proud being an A+
school for five years in a row. It
takes all of us working together
to achieve this goal and together
with LBMS and UCHS, we
make an A- district."
State gives district
recognition funds
To rewards schools for their
accomplishments, the state
began the Florida School
Recognition Program. This
program monetarily rewards
schools that have sustained
high student performance


or that have demonstrated
substantial improvement in
student performance..
In recognition of their
achievements, all three schools
in Union County are expected
to receive $85 per enrolled
full-time student. For example,
as a result of maintaining an
"A" school grade, Lake Butler
Elementary School will receive
$78,219 in recognition funds.
Superintendent Carlton Faulk
said, "I am so proud of our
school grades. It is exciting
to have the state acknowledge
what we in Union County
already know: We have the best
students to work with and the
best staff to educate them."
Faulk added that he wanted
to extend his personal thanks

Calculating. a school's
grade
Florida school grades are
calculated on several different
performance measures. A
. school receives an "A" if it
receives 525 or more points, a
"B" for 495-524 points, a "C"
for 435-494 points, a "D" for
395-434 points and an "F' for
less than 395 points.
Points are calculated as
follows:
* FCAT high standards-
one point for each percent of
students meeting high standards .
by scoring at or above a level 3
in FCAT reading, one point
for each percent of students
scoring at or above a level 3 in
-FCAT mathematics, one: picint
for each percent of students
scoring at or abo'e level 3 in
FCAT science, and one point

Thomas, Lake, Glenn Harris,
Ron Blake, City Council liaison
Tony Brown and former KAA

now represents a private pilot

After her appointment
last year, Lake was assigned
to handle the airpark's
insurance and legal matters, a
responsibility forhnerly held by
...insurance man Scott Roberts,-
whom Lake replaced on the
,board.
During the .half-hour
meeting last Thursday, Lake
told Thomas '"that as '-far
back as December 2008 she
had requested information
concerning Sportsman's Club
Sdogs, which were running free
over the airpark's forested land.
The dogs also wandered onto
tenant Ivor Wigham's European
Rally, School track, where
automobiles are frequently
.Alriv.en.at highspeeds........----
Lake said she had insisted
to the authority that the matter
was of great concern from a
safety standpoint, which she
'felt would-affect the airpark's
Insurance coverage.
Lake accused Thomas of
taking the matter lightly, since
the Spprtsman's Club had
reigned in the members' dogs,
hunting season was ending
and the Sportsman's Club
lease was up for renewal, and.

immediate family had known
about the murder, but had kept
it secret over the years.:
After the murder, Murwin
lived in the Keystone Heights
area for anotherfive to sixy ars,
thenmoved to Arkansas,where
he had a wife and children. He
was convicted of sex offenses
against children in 1992 and
sentenced to 20 years in prison.
However, he was released and
was o4f parole by 2002.
He moved back to Clay


stated, "The insurance expired
when the Authority failed to
provide the insurer with the
required information prior' to
the expiration date of May 28,
2009 ... the insurance carrier
must have a copy of the current
and active general liability
policy from the Keystone
Heights Sportsmen's Club. A
signed letter from 'the Chairman
of the Authority banning the
dogs will not suffice per the
insurance carrier. Additionally,
the airpark should have proof of
current coverage for all tenants
on the premises."
,.In .her letter of resignation
Lake said. "I made the, mistake
of waiting until the day our
Hangarkeeper's .policy Iwas
' due.to file,,(h ,lbpicy,.,sure.;ey
with the.Linsurance- .company.
This caused the policy to lapse.
Coupled with the fact that the
airport had a mark- against it
concerning the Sportsmen's
Club, the insurance company
has initiated a strong review of
all airport operations."
At last Thursday's meeting,
Lake stated that Weaver had
... graciously.-consented to help
her fill out the forms, which she
'then returned.
The League. 'of Cities
intermediary said he had already
approached other insurers who
declined to offer a quote. Once
the 'required information -vas
received, Beard said. he would
approach the former insurer
who was most likely to offer a
new policy.

nor airpark staff informed him
of any emergent problems with.

Child abuse investigation numbers vary in area's counties


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
The Gainesville office of the
Department of Children and
Families reports that Bradford,
Clay and Putnam Counties
have differing levels of child
abuse.
Over the long term and
statewide, approximately half
of all reports called in actually
identify a child who has indeed
been maltreated or neglected.
DCF staff, member Becky
Dobbins O'Brien, confirmed
that child abuse figures can
vary significantly from county
to county.
"For example," she said,
"lots of abused siblings in
many families can make
numbers go up.
She also observed that calls
to the Hotline may rise as a
result of inservice or staff
education at schools, day care
centers and law enforcement
agencies.
Dobbins said calls can also
increase in response to widely
publicized cases of child abuse
or neglect.
In 2007-2008, the last years
for which information had
been compiled, - Bradford
County received and
investigated 578 reports on
some type of child
maltreatment. Of those cases,
260 children, or 45 percent of
reported cases, were identified
as victims of some type of
child abuse:
To put the numbers . in
perspective, at least .90 percent
of Bradford's total population,
almost 1 percent, is likely to be
an abused child. ., The real
percentage could be higher,
since not all cases of actual
child abuse' are likely to be
reported.
Based on state data, the
Gainesville DCF office said
Clay County conducted 3,009
investigations and found that
1,772 children were victims of
maltreatment, or about .96
percent of the county's total,
population.
Putnam .-nducied 1,818
investigations based on
.-allegations of maltreatment.
DCF said 762 children or 1.04
percent. of' the Putnam
County's total population,
were identified as victims of
abuse.
In Union County, 279
children were. named in
investigations and 129'
children, 46 percent* of
allegations and slightly less
than 1.5 percent of Union's
total non-incarcerated,
population, were identified as
victims of abuse.
Of the three counties, Clay
had the highest likelihood pof
an allegation of child abuse
being confirmed, followed by
Union, Bradford and then
Putnam County.
However, Union had . a
higher rate of child abuse per
capital in its population,

Shawn Gann does a lot of
traveling, but the time he
spends cooped up in a vehicle
to reach his destination is easy
on his body compared to what
he does when he gets there.
Gann, a Keystone Heights
resident and 2005 Keystone
Heights High School graduate,
puts his body through quite a
strenuous workout almost on a
weekly basis, maneuvering his
Honda CRF450 motorcycle
through turns and maintaining
control of " the bike while
airborne. He is a motocross
racer who just recently attained
professional status after a win
'at Sunset Ridge MX in
Walnut. Ill.
By achieving professional
status, Gann, who works at
Carbon Fiber Works in Starke
and attends-Santa Fe College,
will have completed a seven-
year climb from the bottom to
put himself in position to "race
with the fastest guys in the
world." It is something the son
of Phil and Robyn Gann of
Keystone has been striving for,
but he will tell you he is
fortunate to have, the
opportunity. A crash last year
almost put an end to that.
Gann was racing in a
practice round at Muddy Creek
Raceway in Blountville, Tenn.,
last June. As he described it,
he went up the face of a jump,
with the front end of his bike
knifing hard. The result was he
went over the handlebars and
dove head first into the ground,
crushing his C7 vertebra.
"I actually got up and rode
the rest of the lap," Gann said.
"My neck was tingling. I knew
I had jarred something or done
something. When I got back to
trailer, I took my helmet off. I
couldn't,hold my head up. My
head just fell to my shoulder."
Gann underwent surgery that
involved the insertion of plates
and screws, followed by a
three-month absence from the-
sport. It was a frustrating time
for Gann.
"I was in a halo, of course,"
he said. "I couldn't do
anything. They wouldn't let
me lift a gallon of milk or
anything. I wanted to at least

On Friday, July 3, the street

get back in the gym and train."
Gann said the fact he was
wearing a Leatt Brace was
instrumental in the injury not
being more serious, but he said
his work at S&J Fitness Center
in Starke played a huge role as
well. He works out at least two
hours a day at S&J and gives. a
lot of credit to owner Shawn.
Jenkins for designing a
training routine that has
enabled him to be successful in
motocross.
"Shawn definitely knows his
stuff," Gann said.
Physical fitness is a big part
of motocross. A rider is
traveling as fast as he can over
rough terrain on. a bike that
weighs more than 200 pounds.
Gann said it is important to
gain muscle to be able to
control the bike in the air,
especially, while
cardiovascular health is key,
too. Some races he participates
in last approximately 20
minutes, but some of the
bigger ones he's been
competing in to earn pro points
go for 30 minutes.
"If you can't go for the
whole moto as fast as you can
go, then you're definitely
going to fall back," Gann said.
"You want to definitely be
physically fit.'.'
The demands of the sport are
.more than physical, however.
Gann said one has to. be
mentally tough as well.
"You've got to be confident

in yourself," he said. "You've
got to know you know what to
do when something happens.
You've just got to be ready."
Gann appeared to be ready
for the sport when he first took
part in it. He always rode 4-
wheelers and go-karts growing
up, he said, but motocross was
actually part of his blood. His
father used to races though his
involvement was more for ftrM
than anything else, Gann said.
Gann and his father began
attending races as spectators,
with Gann eventually telling
his dad he wanted to race
himself.
"Ever since then, we've
been non-stop with it," Gann
said.
Gann uses the personal
pronoun "we" when describing
his involvement with the sport
because one, it speaks to his
family's support, and two, his
father is also his mechanic.
'"He helps me with..
everything I need," Gann said.
"He helps me 110 percent."
It has been a great
partnership, Gann said,
because his father is helpful
with advice, such as where he
needs to pick his speed up on
certain sections of the course.
Also, Gann trusts his father
as mechanic because, as he
said, "You've got to have a
dependable bike to race all'
these races;"
That's why maintenance of
the bike occurs daily. Gann
said a couple of hours each day
are devoted to it.
"Jumping through, the air,
you don't want to have a bike
fall apart on you," he said.
Taking a course's jumps
were certainly nerve-wracking
when he first began racing,
Gann said. Until one does it,
he said, you don't realize how
high you go and how far you
go.
Figuring out the jumps at
each track is one of the hardest
parts of the sport, Gann said,
though he said how one comes
out of the starting gate is
probably the most important
part of the race.
"The better the start you get,
the easier it is to get up to the
front of the pack," he said.
Then there are the crashes.

Gann said the first time a rider
crashes is scary because you
don't know what to expect.
However, Gann said he has
gotten used to the crashes.
They are a part of the sport.
"The better you are. the less
you crash, of course," Gann
said, "but the faster you want
to go, the more chances you
take with crashing, too."
The crash, in Tennessee did
nothing to damper Gann's
enthusiasm for racing, though
it did worry his parents. They
usually attend his races; but
were not there in Tennessee.
Upon hearing about the crash
and resulting injury, they
drove 11 hours to be with their
son.
"By the time they got there,
I was already out of surgery,"
Gann said. "They were both
nervous, but they're behind
me. They said if I wanted to
race, that's what I would do."
Indeed, that's what he did
after receiving medical
clearance to do so. Now, Gann
has fulfilled a dream-to race
professionally. He has studied
the moves of professional
drivers such as Ricky
Carmichael, Chad Reed and
James Stewart on television,
but to actually compete against
such drivers? Gann said he is
sure it will be intimidating at
first.
"I'm sure it will be nerve-
wracking just like the first day
I started riding," 'he said.
"You're racing some of the top
guys in the world-40 of the
fastest riders. You're trying to
compete against them.
"It will also be fun. It will be
worth it. It's what you strive
for."
Gann said one of his goals
now is to compete in the
Supercross Series, which has
races in Jacksonville, Daytona
and Atlanta. The overriding
goal, though, is to keep racing
as long as he can.
"I don't ever plan . on
stopping any time soon," Gann
said. "I have so much fun at
it."


You are beginning to see
that any man to whom
you can do favour is your
friend, and that you can
do a favour to almost
anyonep;-J- ,,

The Fourth of July:



America's birthday


The Fourth of July, which
dates back to 1776 as an
.American holiday, may have
lost some of its luster of being
the day Americans "cast the
gauntlet," initiating the
Revolutionary War with.
England, the first step in
founding the United States as a
national presence on the world
stage.
As a nation, except for
history buffs, we ..-have
forgotten the oppressive
regulations imposed by
Britain, which in retrospect
appear to have been designed
to force the colony/states into
perpetual servitude while
failing to understand that
desperate measures' are
forerunners of desperate
countermeasures. "'England's
King George III may have
been a popular regent to the
English, but to the American
Colonists, he was a short-
sighted tyrant determined to
keep the English boot on the
neck of the American
Colonials into perpetuity.
In the 13 years prior to the
adoption of the Declaration of
Independence by the Second
Continental Congress, King
George III, reflecting the
desires of the English
Parliament, imposed
successive and continuing
restrictions and taxes on the 13
colonies, beginning with the
1763 ban on settlers west of
the' 'Appalachians, and the
requirement that those already
settled in the area return to the
eastern side of the mountain
range.
The next year saw the
British.. enact the first of
several tax measures to pay
down the English debt incurred
in the French and Indian wars,
and a ban on the importation of
French rum and wines. The
Sugar Act was followed in'
1765 with the Stamp Act,
which was more vigorously
opposed by colonists. Taxing
printed. material of every
type--newspapers, pamphlets,
attorney's . opinions and
letters-it touched a financial
nerve with bitter opposition
unforeseen and unexpected by
the British. It was the first
direct tax on the colonies in
which tax revenue was routed
to foreign nation rather than
through the local government.
In addition to imposing the
StampAct, the British added
insult to injury by passing the
Quartering Act,'. requiring
colonists to provide meals and
lodgifig hto British troops in
their homes 'and 'public
buildings.
The British struck again in
1773, passing a three-cent per-
pound levy on tea, which may
have been the final straw and
resulted in the h9ealded and
celebrated "Boston Tea Party,"
in which colonials dressed as
Mohawk Indians boarded three
British ships in Boston Harbor
at night and 'dumped 342
containers of tea into the
water. The British retaliated by
passing an act requiring
Massachusetts to pay for the


tea as well as the tax.
The 13 independent
colonies, occupying a narrow
strip on the eastern shore of the
American continent, with a
population of 2,210,000,
appeared to have limited
military ability and the threat
of secession fell on deaf ears.
It was likely that England
expected the new land to
follow Europe's example of
balkanizing- breaking up into
small independent states with
little individual strength, and
unlikely to form a cohesive
joint military power. There
was nothing at the time to
indicate this was a nation in
the making that would become
a world leader and the most
powerful military power ever
known.
Delegates to the Second
Continental Congress united in
opposition to domination by
the British and determined' to
form a new nation, declared
their . independence,' a
considered action certain to
initiate war. It was d6jA vu,
with David facing Goliath in a
struggle to maintain the status
quo or do the impossible-
form a new nation.
Goliath lost. The improbable
and seemingly impossible was
accomplished and the United


States became a powerful
nation based on the concept of
individual freedom and
democratic - ideals. The
founding fathers had a dream,
an impossible dream that was
nurtured by their descendents
and immigrants seeking the
freedom found only in
democracies, and fulfilled in
the , United States, whose
birthday we celebrate on July 4
each year.
This year, the Fourth of July
falls on a Saturday. The
highways and waterways will
be filled with activity, a
dangerous . - situation, and
everyone is encouraged to be
very careful in fun-filled
activities. Take a few moments
to remember the great men and
women that made this day
possible, and do your part in
passing this celebration of
freedom to succeeding
generations.
Note: The 13 colonies were
New Hampshire.
Massachusetts, Rhode Island,
Connecticut, Georgia,
Maryland, Virginia, New
York, Pennsylvania, Delaware,
North Carolina, South Carolina
and New Jersey.
Lest we forget...

Bradford ARC consumers treated royally on Purple Day


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
For those of us who love
hamburgers, we eat the tasty
treats without giving thought
to winning some type of
award. It's just a common
occurrence-the act of eating
something.
Things we take for granted.,
though, take on greater
meaning for people with
disabilities. That is why
someone like Chris Balance
can proudly walk before a
crowd of his peers and accept a
certificate naming him as the
."Biggest Hamburger Fan" with
gratitude.
Balance and the other
consumers of the ARC of
Bradford , County were
recognized for their talents,
personality traits and hobbies
during "Purple Day" on June
5. Purple Day is an annual
event where ARC staff
members show their
appreciation for the consumers
and what they bring to the
ARC and to their everyday
lives.
Sherry Ruszkowski, the
executive director of the ARC
of Bradford County, said every
consumer receives a certificate
that day, whether it's for
"Cutest Baby Face," "Best
Movie Watcher" or "Best
Mountain Dew Drinkl ' It is a
moment of pride for the
consumers. Ruszkowski
remembered one year in which
a consumer showed up at the
facility with a frame in which
to place the certificate he was
going to receive that day.
"They're very, very proud of
them," Ruszkowski said.
Purple Day is filled with
games and various contests.
Bernestine Scott and Scott
Woolever, for example,

him "Biggest Hamburger Fan."


showed off some rather
impressive moves as they took
top. honors in the dance
contest. Outside the facility, in
between the intermittent
rainfall, consumers tackled the
water slide and took turns at
the dunking booth.
A special person showed up
to spend a little time inside the
dunking booth-WEAG
personality Chuck Kramer.
Kramer is an ARC of Bradford
County board member and,
Ruszkowski said, no stranger
to. the ARC facility. Kramer
visits the consumers and
participates in various events
such as the board's annual
banquet and the ARC's Cow-
Patty Bingo fundraiser.
See PURPLE, p. 12B


WEAG's Chuck
Kramer
volunteered to
sit in the
dunking booth
and ARC
consumers
lined up with
great
anticipation in
an attempt to
get him wet.

Though all gave outstanding performances in the
dance contest, there never seemed to be much
question as to who would catch the judges' eyes as
the contest unfolded. ABOVE: Scott Woolever
showed off some lightning-quick moves as he
captured the vote for the best male dancer. BELOW:
Bernestiie Scott gave quite a performance to the
Commodores' "Brick House" as she was voted the
best female dancer.

It's hard to believe it has been
one year We did not know that
morning God would call your
name. In life, we loved you
dearly; in death we do the
same.
It broke our hearts for you to
leave us, but you did not go
alone, for a part of us went
with you the day God called
you home. You left us beautiful
memories, your love is still our
guide, and though we cannot
see you, you're always at our
side. Our family chain is
broken and nothing is the
same, but as God calls us one
by one, the chain will link
again.
