Take Stock/ACORN

approach county for

continued support


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Two beneficiaries of.Bradford
County financial support-
Communities in Schools and
ACORN Clinic-appeared
Monday to thank the county
commission for past dollars and
ask for future consideration as
next year's budget is planned..
Communities in Schools of
Bradford County Executive
Director Jim Biggs spoke on
behalf of the organization's
Take Stock in Children program,
which pairs at-risk students with
adult mentors. The mentors are
volunteers who commit to meet
with their Take Stock students
once a week at school from the
time they are in middle school
through their high school
graduation, providing leadership,
giving advice and lending the
moral support the students need
to be successful learners.
Take Stock recognizes there
are a number of stumbling
Rocks from the temptation to
drop out of school to pressure to
get involved with drugs or other
illegal activities. The program
encourages positive behavior
and good grades. When students
'enter the program, they sign
a contract agreeing to attend
school, maintain a minimum 2.5
grade point average, abide by the
student code of conduct and meet
weekly with their mentor.
Thanks to' donations and
state matching dollars, Take
Stock students are assured that
if they successfully complete
the program, they will receive
full tuition for two'years, at a
community college and two years
at auniversity-enoughto further:
their educations with a four-year
degree and better guarantee they
successfully escape the, cycle of
poverty and the myriad social
problems associated with it.This
doesn't just help those students, it
helps the community as a whole.
Knowing what awaits them if
they complete the program and
having the support of mentors
who believe in their abilities
gives Take Stock students hope.
Biggs"siiid every .year the
organization - actively' seeks


donations to help these
deserving young people.
Program Coordinator Kimberly
Alldredge, who. is responsible
for fundraising, said there are
currently 33 middle and high
school students in the Take Stock
. in Children program. Take Stock
has already sent 14 students on
to college and.three more recent
'high school graduates will soon
join them.
According to Alldredge, the
county commission, which first
began donating to Take Stock;
six years ago, will have its first
graduate receiving a four-year
scholarship from the program
next year, with another graduating
every year after that.
This year the county
contributed $4,500 to Take Stock.
The program is asking for $5,700
next year. As Biggs pointed out
during the commission meeting,
that money goes mdch further
because it is matched dollar
for dollar by the state's prepaid
tuition program, so the almost
$26,000 the county has given
over six years actually amounts
Sto nearly $52,000. But that's not
all. The money accrues interest
while the student is still in school,
so the full worth of the county's
contributions is around $70,000,
Biggs said.
"Without your help and people
just like you in our county, we
would not be able to do that,"
Biggs said.
. Biggs thanked county
commissioners for their. support
as well as the county manager,
Brad Carter, who is a Take Stock
mentor. He also pointed out that
Alldredge had raised nearly
$300,000 as program coordinator
for- Take: Stock, which,. when
match dollars and interest are
added, amounts to more than a
half-million dollars for Bradford
County children.
Acknowledging the tough
economic times, Biggs. asked

Supervisor prepares county commission for redistricting


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Next year will bring the 2010
census, and following that the
redrawing of political districts
to reflect the ne\\ population
information.
According to Supervisor of
Elections lerry Vaughan, there
have been no major changes to
Bradford County voting districts
since 1986.
That's when a legal challenge
brought by the Bradford County
chapter of the NAACP not only
resulted in district lines being
redrawn to allow for racially
diverse representation on the
county commission and school
board. but also changed the
style of election from at-large to
single-member voting districts.
(Starke had to redraw its district
lines a few years later.)
While the county commission
is responsible for redrawing
district lines, Vaughan told
commissioners Monday he was
at their service.
The goal is to come up with a
plan that is fair and that everyone
can live with, Vaughan said,
suggesting the commission
hold a workshop later this year
to decide how it would like to
proceed. Some counties, he said,
form grass-roots committees to
look at redistricting as a way of
ensuing public representation in
the process.
The county needs to have
a new plan in place in 2011,
Vaughan said. but it must wait
on the Florida Legislature to
make some decisions on state
and congressional districts, since
those decision will.affect how
precincts are decided within the
county.
Among the changes that
could be coming given budget
constraints is a reduction in
the number of precincts in the
county, Vaughan said.
Constitutionally, a census is
mandated every 10 years. The
redistricting process that follows
can be politically divisive.

Democrats won the -White
House and both congressional
chambers, notasingle Republican
incumbent lost their seat in the
Florida Legislature.
According to Fair Districts
Florida, the amendments would
prevent congressional or state
legislative districts form being
drawn to favor or disfavor a
particular party or to deny racial
or language minorities an equal
opportunity to participate in
electing representatives of their
choice. They would require
districts to be contiguous,
compact, as equal in population
as possible and make use
of existing city, county and
geographical boundaries when,
feasible.
,Supporters have until next.
February to collect enough
signatures for the amendments
to appear on the ballot.
Things should not be as
contentious when it comes to
drawing lines in the county.
Preliminary estimates show the
county hasn't grown too much
over the past 1.0 years-around 10
percent maybe. The 2000 census
put the county's population at




Chuck!
Jly 8, 2009

o i


26,088.The estimated population
in 2008, according to the U.S.
Census Bureau. is 29,012.
Whether or not states should
include inmate population when
redistricting takes place has
been another point of argument.
Both figures above include
the prison inmate population.
Subtracting the current numberof
incarcerated places the county's
population at around 24.530.
Out of that number, there
are currently 15,754 registered
voters in the county. according
to Vaughan's Web site, wwiw.
bradfordelections.com.
Currently county districts are
"a little out of whack" in terms of
population, Vaughan said.
In District 1, there are 1.945
total voters. There are 4.118 in
District 2; 2,485 in District 3;
3,604 in'District 4: and 3,613
in- District 5. Breakdown by
population, however, was not
immediately available. The goal
is to have roughly the same
number of people in each district.
This is a way of ensuring that
each resident has equal access
to government. no matter where
they. live.

Plans being made for


emergency pet shelter


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Local officials are working
to carry out a state requirement
so the next time emergency
evacuation shelters must be
opened in Bradford County, there
will be space available for pets as
well as people.
Bradford County Emergency
Management Director Brian
Johns told the school board
last week that the emergency
evacuation pet shelter will be
located at Starke Elementary.
With a back up generator installed
there, the school also serves as
an emergency evacuation site for
people.
Accommodations' will be
made for cats, dogs and service
animals (any animal that assists
a disabled individual).
Johns said the county plans
to use existing animal, control

Florida's Public Service
Commission has granted AT&T
Florida a temporary two-year rule
waiver that allows the company to
suspend upfront local residential
white page directory distribution
to its customers. Customers will
be able to request a free printed
residential directory by calling a
toll-free number.
Commissioners unanimously
approved the temporary rule
waiver with the stipulation that
the PSC conduct public outreach
to inform consumers of the trial
program and collect customer
feedback. Upon completion of
the two-year trial period, the
commission will assess consumer
feedback and determine if the
rule waiver should.be continued
or revoked.


staff to help man the emergency
evacuation shelter. While cages
and such will be provided to
house the pets, pet owners will
also be expected to care for their
animals, taking them for walks,
etc. That means even if multiple
shelters opened at local schools,
pets owners will be required to
stay with their animals at Starke
Elementary.
Because pets can be abandoned
in emergency evacuation shelters,
particularly when storms cause a
great deal of destruction (think
Katrina). Suddenly, beloved pets
can become a burden families
can no longer support. For that
reason, Johns said there would be
a planfor abandoned animals to
be housed at animal control until
they can be adopted.
He said owners bringing pets
to the emergency shelter would
be made aware that the pets could
be adopted if left behind.
SExpenses incurred locally will

continuing to provide directories
to customers who want a copy,"
said PSC Chairman Matthew
M. Carter II. "Requiring fewer
printed directories will also
create less waste and help our
environment."
The company will continue to
furnish customers with printed
copies of its business yellow page
directory and provide residential
listings via the Internet. The
toll-free number for customers to
receive a free printed residential
directory will be displayed on the
coverofthe yellow pagedirectory.
Customers should expect the trial

within the next two months.

said. That includes everything
from increased utility costs, to
equipment purchases, building
modifications, food, medicine,
veterinary care and employee
overtime.
Johns said he receives a
lot of questions about. pet
accommodations in emergencies..
Since becoming emergency,
management director for the
county, Johns said he's had to
change his mind about providing
shelter for pets.
"As I got into it, I saw (on)
numerous occasions people will
not leave their homes if they are
not allowed to take their pets
with them," he said.
For some. people, those pets
are like their children, he said.
A full plan will be coming
to the school board for final
approval in the near future.

tests arc inexpensive, yet very
informative. Information such
as crude protein (CP), total
digestible nutrients . (TDN),
nitrates, minerals and many other
variables can be evaluated.
Since fertilizers, forage
maturity, rain and other inputs
impact forage quality, each
cutting of hay should be tested
separately. A single sample from
12 to 15 bales should be collected
into a single container. These'
samples are then combined to
get a representative sample of the
cutting.
There are many hay sampling
tools available that' can be used
to collect the sample. Typical
sampling tools are tube shaped
and contain a cutting edge on
one end. They can be manually
driven into the bale with a crank
or drilled using an adapter. Round
bales that have been weathered
should have their outer layer
removed before sampling. This
outer layer would not provide an
accurate analysis of the nutrition
being provided and would be


discarded rather than consumed
by the animal.
Green pasture samples can
be collected from the field and
analyzed similar to hay samples.
You can remove green pasture
samples by hand or using tools
such as clippers, etc. Multiple
samples should be collected as
described above.
Analysis may take one.to three
weeks to be analyzed depending
on the data requested and the lab
performing the test. Costs vary
between tests and labs but may
range from $5 to $25 per sample.
Once forage quality has been
determined, an accurate ration
can be calculated. Balancing
your livestock's ration not only
makes sense for the animal's
sake, but also makes sense for
your pocketbook.
If you have questions regarding
how to take a hay sample, how to
interpret the results of your hay
test, contact me any time at (904)
966-6224. (Source Adapted:

Unlike its previous gaming

still a lot of fun. The library
encourages area teens to bring
their own video-game consoles
and games, board games, playing
(and trading) cards, and suchlike.
Of course, the library will supply
a number of screens, its Xbox

checkers.
Admission is free, but limited
this time to teens 13-19 years old,

LB mother


delivers


premature


twins at home


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


Although twin births are not
completely unheard of these
days, going into sudden pre-
term labor in the middle of
the night and giving birth on
a bathroom floor is a little
unusual.
On June 20, Amy Perkins
of Lake Butler went into labor
nine weeks early, delivering her
twins herself on the bathroom
floor of her Lake Butler home.
Around six weeks into her
pregnancy, Perkins, 31, said
she went to the emergency
room because she was feeling
so sick.
"I couldn't stop vomiting and
had a migraine headache," she
said. What she first feared was
an ectopic pregnancy, but when
the ultrasound technician came
in to take a look at her uterus,
he told her everything was fine
and that "both babies" looked
great.
Unaware she was pregnant
with twins,the technician turned
the ultrasound screen towards
Perkins and it was then that she
first saw two blips-indicating
two fetal heartbeats inside her.
and she began to cry.
Thrilled by the unexpected
news (especially since there is
no family history of twins),
Perkins was soon overwhelmed


"Jackson is five years old,
almost six now. After all this
time, we thought we were
done," she said.
In addition, Perkins had been
dealing with the loss of her
mother who passed away in
October last year. She found
out she was pregnant in
December, just two weeks just
after she completed the zoo
animal technology program at
Santa Fe Community College.
She had planned to go to work
as a tour guide at the college's
teaching zoo.
Perkins also lives with
fibromyalgia, a chronic joint
and muscle pain that she had
managed to get under control
with prescribed medications. A
new pregnancy meant stopping
the medications for the safety
of the unborn children.
Following the early months
of terrible morning sickness,
Perkins began adjusting to her
rapidly growing belly and was
feeling better when she started
going into pre-term labor at 27
weeks.
After this happened two
or three times, her physician
thought it best she receive a
steroid shot to boost the lung-
function of the babies...just in
case of pre-term delivery. She
was also given medication to
control the contractions and put
on moderate bed rest.
Although her doctor never

by concerns relating to her own
health and recent events in her
life.
Perkins said the realization of
twins was scary because it was
a lot to take on after everything
she had been going through
lately.
Having a five-year-old son at
home already, Perkins said she
and her husband, Thom, were
first surprised to find out she
was pregnant with one, much
less two babies.

came right out and said it, there
was some concern over how
big she was growing.
"We were hoping I would at
least make it to 34 weeks, but at
31 weeks, my waist measured
the size of a woman 42 weeks
pregnant." Perkins said. "I
couldn't hardly move or, get
comfortable, much less sleep."
Just after midnight on June
20, Perkins was lying in bed
and couldn't get comfortable.
She got up to use the bathroom
when she felt a sudden
overwhelming urge to push and
her water broke.
"I felt the baby's feet coming
out and screamed 'for myL
husband," Perkins said.
"He came in and saw the
baby's ' feet coming out
and hurried to call 911."
Remembering what she had
learned.about what to do in the
'case of an emergency home
delivery, she told her husband
to get the nasal aspirator from
the already packed diaper bag
for the hospital, grabbed some
towels and lay down on ithe
bathroom floor.
Unfortunately, she said, she
lay down with her head right
near the doorway, making it
difficult for Thom to be able
to assist her. Thom also called
his father-in-law, Bobby
Winningham, who lived nearby
so he could tend to the couple's'
son, Jackson,' and keep him
from being frightened when
rescue arrived.
"My dad poked his head
in the door and I had already
delivered the first baby and
was suctioning his nose and
rubbing his feet to stimulate
him. It happened that quick,"
said Perkins. Carter James
Perkins came into the world
weighing just 3 lbs., 14 oz. and
measuring 16 inches long.
Almost immediately, her
second water broke and Thom
watched as she delivered their
second boy, Eli Cash, who
weight 3 lb.,8 oz. and measured
15 inches long.
It was only a few minutes
into proud daddy talking to the
new babies and his wife when
rescue arrived, cut the babies'
cords and began preparing the
three for the ambulance.
"At first, everything looked
OK," Perkins said, "and they
got us all in the rescue."

purple. Rescue personnelstarted
breathing for Carter and giving
him chest compressions.
Perkins recalled, "It was so
frightening watching them.
Through the back door of the
ambulance, my husband could
see these grown men over
our baby giving him chest
compressions and he just lost it
right there."
ShandsCair was called to
meet the ambulance in an open
field at S.R. 100 and S.R. 100A
and Perkins watched helplessly
as they took her babies away.
"One of the guys from the
helicopter looked at me and
said, 'We're gonna take good
care of your babies,' and that
made me feel a little better,"
Perkins said.
On Independence Day, the
boys turned two weeks old
and are gaining weight and
continuing to thrive.
Their mother describes them
as all arms and legs...long
and thin. The boys did have
some respiratory issues at first
and one of them developed an
infection, so as a precaution,
both Carter and Eli were treated
with antibiotics.

Jeffrey Oody did not
originally set out for a career
in banking. His dream was to
actually become an Air Force
pilot.


The twins are steadily given
their mother's breast milk
through feeding tubes, because
they are still unable to control
the suck, swallow and breathe
reflexes on their own just yet.
These feeding reflexes usually
develop around 34 weeks
gestation, so Perkins feels
they will soon be able to begin
practicing breast-feeding.
Amy and Thom go to the
hospital every day and spend as
much time as they can with the
boys. Even big brother makes
trips to the hospitals to see the
twins. After they were born,
Jackson went to the Build-A-
Bear Workshop and made them
each a stuffed doggy.
"He loves them and wants to
hold them," said Perkins.
Perkins was told that in order
for the boys to go home with
her, they have to be able to do
three things. First, Carter and
Eli must be able to breathe on
their own. They must also be
able to regulate their own body
temperatures and control their
feeding reflexes. When exactly
this will happen, Perkins
doesn't know for sure.
Right now, she just continues
keeping a supply of breast milk
for the boys and makes the trips
back and forth to Gainesville to
spend time with them. "We are
just taking it one hour at a time,
one day a right now."

Number of employees: 34, as
well as a number of business
partners that handle commercial
lending,

$70,000-$250,000 plus stock
options and incentives (depending
upon corporate size and location).


."I knew every type of engine
there was from a P-51 Mustang
to an SR-71," Oody said.
It seemed fitting enough, as
his great grandfather served in
the Navy, his grandfather in
the Marines and his father in
the Army. That left him with
the Air Force. He attended the
University of Tennessee Air
Force ROTC program and was
awarded a pilot's slot between
his sophomore and junior years.
He took the Air Force Officer
Qualifying Test, but was turned
down when it was discovered
he was color blind.
"I already knew I had color.
blindness, because I have
trouble differentiating between
shades of blues and greens, for
example, and thought I'd try to
manage it," said Oody.
With his intended dream
shattered, it was between his
junior and senior year that
he and a cadet buddy went
to Daytona Beach for summer
break. It was there that'Oody
met his future wife, Beth, who
was from Starke and was also
vacationing before her senior
year in high school.
Oody tried out his- different
options in school, but, just
didn't have the ambition to
be anything but a pilot. He
switched career paths and
decided to major in accounting.
While finishing college, Oody
drove to Starke to see Beth as
often as he could, attending
Bradford High School football
games on Friday nights before
heading back to Tennessee.
Eventually, he landed a job
with a Gainesville accounting
firm but discovered that more
than calculating tax returns, he
really liked breaking numbers
apart and following the story
they told.
Around 1990, he redirected
his focus to finance and
returned to college, this time
,attending the University of
North Florida in Jacksonville,
where he majored in finance
with a minor in real estate
development.
While attending a college job
fair, he met with a recruiter from
Barnett Bank, which at that time
was on its way to becoming
the largest commercial bank in
Florida. Banking seemed to be
a good career path,
and Oody was eager
for knowledge.

Barnett Bank in 1997. In 1998,
,NationsBank continued to

and becoming known as Bank
of America, one of the largest
banking corporations in the
United. States. It was during
the time of the NationsBank
take over of Barnett Bank that
Oody was offered, a position
with First Union Bank as a
commercial lender in their
Gainesville office.
After about eight months on
the job, and at the ripe old age
of 27, Oody took a chance and

was to start out. as a phone
operator in the customer call
'center."
This gave him the opportunity
tocommunicate with the various
departments and learn about
every single service provided
by the bank.
"It only took a short time for
me to realize I wanted to be on
the lending side and I applied
to be a credit analyst. This is
where my minor in real estate
really helped out," he said.
After a few years in this
position, Oody was promoted
to corporate underwriting
where he handled accounts
throughout Florida. In 1994, a
corporate decision was made to
start a small business banking
department. Not likely what he
meant when he originally set
out to be a pilot, he began the
pilot program for small'business
banking in Jacksonville.
Within six months, the
department had expanded to
include all of North Florida and
within a year, all of Florida and
parts of Georgia.
"We started out with four
people and two years later, we
had 30 employees," said Oody.
For six years he enjoyed this
career, especially doing the
number crunching to help out
those small businesses.
"I found out I really like the
personal sideof thejob...getting
to know the mom and pop type
of businesses," Oody said. "I
liked talking with them, getting
to know them and their families
on a personal level. I gained a
thorough understanding of how
their business worked."
In fact, Oody said he
sometimes got so involved that
he knew he could go out there
and run their business if he
had to. '
It was about this time that
banks were busily buying up
other banks-across the nation.

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
In June, Gov. Charlie Crist signed
a bill that was at first supported by
the legislators that proposed it, before
realizing a little too late its full impact
on the county clerks offices throughout
Sthe state.
Despite their requests for Crist to veto
the bill, the new law went into effect
on July 1 and could possibly result in
the layoff of nearly 1,500 clerk's office
employees statewide.
The bill has changed the way Florida's
67 clerks offices are funded, putting
them on the same budget process as that
of judges, public defenders and state
attorneys. It forces county clerks offices
to slash their budgets even more than
they anticipated for their new 2009-
2010 budget year.
Bradford County Finance Director


Parents: Your help
is requested
The administrative staff of Union
County High School is in the process of
revising its student code of conduct and
dress code and is attempting to make
them more easily understood.
They are asking for parental input,
especially in the area of dress code.
Written suggestions are being accepted
at the front office of the high school
through today, Thursday, July 9. Please
look for additional articles in the Union
County Times for further information.

Few spots still
available for football
S Fewver than 20 spots are still available
for Union County Pop Warner football.
The very final sign-up days are today,
Thursday, July 9, and Thursday, July:
23. between 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the ,O.
Phillips Recreational Complex located
on S.R. 121.
Players must be between the ages
of 5 and 12 to participate. A parent or
guardian mdst accompany the player.for
registration and bring the following: a
wallet-sized photo of player, a year-end
report card, an official birth certificate.
a photo ID of the parent or guardian.
a copy of health insurance card ahd a
check or cash in the amount of $75 per
football player. For more information,


Jim Farrell said the new legislation
has cut an additional $19,629 from the
Bradford budget that had already but cut
by $100,487 for the current fiscal year
ending in September.
Union County Finance Director
Donna Jackson said Union is suffering
an additional $12,000 loss in funding.
To make. matters worse, the clerks
offices had to rush and do what they call
a "soft close" to end the state fiscal year
which runs from July 1 to June 30 each
year. County fiscal years run from Sept.
I to Oct. 30, which means the clerks will
now be required to maintain two fiscal
budget years-one for the county and
one for the state each year.
According to Union County Clerk
Regina Parrish, the office has been very
frugal because they knew budget cuts
were continuing to be handed down
from the state, but they really had no
idea to what extent it would be. What


is even more difficult is the fact that
fees for court-related services provided
by the clerks are expected to go up as
of Sept. 1, yet the clerks' offices are
expected to produce a budget without
really knowing what kind of revenue
they can expect.
"Fortunately," Parrish said,"the clerk's
office does not anticipate any layoffs at
. this point." The office of deputy clerk in
Union County was vacated over a year
ago and the clerk chose not to fill that
position to preserve other jobs.
Bradfotd County Clerk Ray Norman
said that there may, be some relief- in
sight as legislators can choose to revisit
the recently signed bill and could even
consider repealing it.
Clerks' offices maintain documents,
including court records, birth and death
certificates, marriage licenses, domestic
violence injunctions, and collect money
for traffic infractions.

KH Yard of the Month chosen
BY DEIRDRE MURPHY
Special to the Monitor k "


The Garden C'lub of the
Lakes' June Yard of the Month
went to Terry and Marilyn
Sorensen of Twin Lakes Road,
east of Keystone Heights.
The yard was nominated-
by Marilyn Sorenson who is
justifiably proud of all the hard
work her husband has done to
create their yard.
Crepe mrytles of every color
line the front of the house,
with roses tucked behind
podocarpus that stand on either
side of the stairs. A concrete
stone walkway Terry made, and
which was hand painted by the
Sorensens' seven grandchildren,
leads into the backyard.
The first garden along the
pathway is a native butterfly
garden planted with coreopsis,
passionvine of purple, red, blue
and white, borderweed and a
variety of wildflowers.
Beautiful trumpet plants of
purple, yellow and other colors
are also in bloom.
Some areas are filled
with pencil cactus and night
blooming siris, which were
already blooming at 4 p.m.
There is.aloe given to Marilyn
by her mother, staghorn, giant
star and a variety of bromeliads.
Trumpet, orange and coral
honeysuckle, sunflowers,
golden dewdrys, yellow cannas.
bottlebrush, wisteria, dianthus,
gladioluis, and shasta daisies
add to the landscape.'
And what would a garden be
without a vegetable gardenand
fruit trees? Blueberry, cherry,
plum, lemon, grapefruit. and
apples (Granny Smith and
Golden Delicious) and more
are set throughout the yard.
The Sorensons' second crop
of corn was already up. Lettuce.

The Keystone Heights Rotary
installed officers for the coming
year at its annual banquet, held
at St. Anne's Episcopal Church
in late June.
President Harold Gilstrap
was re-installed, for a second
year as chapter president. Brian
Willis is sergeant-at-arms;
Joanne Patray will be secretary.
Rob Morford continues in his
position as the civic group's
treasurer.
Gilstrap, who bills
himself professionally as a
"recognitionologist," gave
awards or certificates to every
member of the organization,
citing each person'scontribution
during the year.
"One way to inspire people
to do more," Gilstrap said, "is
to reward them for what they
have done already." "
Retired missionary Benson
Cane was deemed the group's
de facto chaplain; Rotarian Jim
Smith is:kno~wn for greeting
visitors at 'weekly meetings
and giving weekly updates on
Gator sports. Board members
Jim Gill and Shelly Gibbs were
awarded for wise council; Bud
Mizell and Fred Johnson were
awarded for setting up the room
before each week's meeting.
Gilstrap told the Rotarians
that deceased members Al
Watson and Bill Phillips would
be missed, and encouraged the
Rotarians to remember their
generosity and community
spirit in the year ahead. Watson
was the group's last.remaining
charter member, and was with
the group from it's beginning.

Jaycee history of training youth
in gun safety.
The U.S. Jaycecs teamed
with Daisy Air Rifles in the
mid-1960s to develop the
program, which has evolved
into the curriculum the Jaycees
teach today.
Prezkuta, wearing a shirt
that read "Shoot like a girl if
you can," was quick to point
out that shooting is more of a
mental than a physical sport;
and that girls are. competitive


with boys.
The Jaycees have broken
the Daisy curriculum into two
one-day sessions. The basic
course emphasizes gun safety
and marksmanship from the
prone position. The advanced
course is devoted to learning
competitive shootingin the
prone, sitting, kneeling and
'standing positions.
Classes are available for '10-

Rabbi speaks at KH Rotai


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Rabbi Berl Goldman came
from Gainesville two weeks
ago to speak to the Keystone
Heights Rotary. His topic was
the origins of business ethics.
Goldman is rabbi, or teacher,
at the I.ubovitch-Chabad Jewish
Students and community y Center
at the University of Florida.
He said he enjoys speaking to
Gentile groups on a variety of
subjects-from Bernie Madoff
to the recent attack on the
Lubovitch-Chabad center in
Mumbai, India.
Unlike other Jewish sects,
his rebbe, or teacher, told his
students to go out into the world
and teach, to educate every
human being on the universal
connection of all people
Lubovitch refers to Luba, a

Chabad refers to a philosophy
of wisdom, understanding and

The sect's basic precept
sounds faintly familiar: "What
is hateful to thee, do not to
others." After that, Rabbi
Goldman said, everything else
is commentary.
Goldman told the Rotarians
that the earliest stories and
Talmudic writings recorded the
call for business ethics.
One of the three questions
asked by the heavenly judges
of each new arrival was,-"Did

affairs honestly with your
fellow men?"
Goldman noted that early
Jews were asked to go beyond

business tradition was, in
ess nce, "Pus it in writing."
"A person 'forgets. Paper
doesn't forget?' he said.
Just weights and measures
were -also a necessary part of
business ethics for early Jews.
Finally, early Jewish business
ethics demanded compassion
and compromise.
The rabbi -used- Bernard
Madoff as an example of.
business acumen put to bad
use. .
Madoff was sentenced last
week to 150 years in prison
for running.: the..Jargest P9nzi

group took .tens of billions
of dollars from thousands of
'people-many of them selected
as Madoff's marks because they
were fellow Jews.
Goldman said his sense of
morality made him a little
skeptical in some cases. Many
of Madoff's victims were
highly sophisticated investors
eager to give the felon their
money.


"Some people don't mind a
little fraud when it's to their
benefit," Goldman said.

301 overpass at S.R. 26 begins


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor

Florida Department of
Transportation staffer Frank
Suarez and others held an
open house last week for
Orange Heights residents to
discuss the construction of
a U.S. 301 overpass in their
neighborhood.
- The western on-ramp_.toQ
S the overpass will be located
on S.R. 26 neai the" Orange
Heights Baptist Church, where
the meeting was held. The
overpass will 'lift traffic over
the CSX railroad and U.S. 301.
The new .prjectwy.ll be
constructed.about7Q.fat south
cof the existing. intersection. It
!will connect to S.R. 26 on the
,west side of U.S. 301 where the
|old pavement was not replaced
:during a recent resurfacing
.project and on the east side
about a mile from U.S. 301.


The eastside on-ramp will
be located about 100 feet east
of Brown's farmstand, whose
business could be impacted by
the project. The nearly 25-foot
high overpass will have two
12-foot travel lanes with 10-
foot shoulders on each side.
,Currently, for about one
hour in the morning and an
hour or so in the afternoon,
the intersection is jammed with
commuter traffic on its way
between Palatka or the Lake
Region and Gainesville. The
backup is even greater if a train
comes along at just the right
time.
SEarleton.- resident Lynn
.Shiaan,.adept ith the
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office, said she looked forward
to completion of the overpass
and didn't think it would have
any adverse effect on the
crossroads community.
U.S. 301 traffic will continue


to support the gas stations that
dot the corners Shipman said,
and she wasn't concerned abopt
what the project might do to
business at the adult bookstore
on the southwest corner.
Lonnie Broome,.pastor at the
Orange Heights Baptist Church
said he thought the overpass
would have no effect on church
traffic since Sunday and
Wednesday evenings weren't
heavily -congested - periods
anyway. He added that it
remains to be seen whether the..
diminished traffic passing his
church would affect attendance
cr membership.
Suarez said he had heard no
objections to the project.,
Melrose resident Tom Lucas.
said he wasn't opposed to:the
overpass but given the absence
of any traffic light to interrupt'
the resultant stead\ traffic flow.

made if rush hour traffic blocks

drivers trying to get onto S.R.
26? Lucas said DOT personnel
didn't know whether that would
be a problem and it bothered-
him that DOT staff didn't seem
familiar with where Melrose
"as.
Melrose resident Braddy
Crom said after the meeting
that he didn't think a lead\
traffic Ilow\ would become an
issue. ..-
Suarpz said the project - as-
instigated in part by the fact
that in 2007.at least 15 non-
lethal accidents had occurred
at..the U.S. 311 and S.R. 26
intersection. The DOT rep-
said he was. ayvL'retbat the
overpass was likely to spur
further de elopment in the


Paving project

on S.R. 21B


S.R. 21B traffic intent
on avoiding a traffic light
in Keystone Heights got
stopped short anyway last
week. Automobiles, trucks
or fishing boats on trailers
waited in the heat as crews
began work last week,
resurfacing and widening
Southeast Eighth Avenue,
also known as C.R. 21B.
Harlis R. Ellington
Construction of Lake Butler
is completing the $385,00(
project.
The county will also build
and grass the shoulders to
prevent erosion. The road
will be widened from 23 to-


24 feet.
The work will stretch
from Southeast S.R. 100 to
Southeast S.R. 21.
On Friday, more than one
impatient motorist left the
line of waiting vehicles to
turn around and head back
the other way as traffic sal.
Weather permitting, the work
is scheduled to be completed
by the end of July.
Asked how the project was-
going last Friday, Lake/City
roller driver Chanda Johnson
replied without even thinking
about it: "Hot."


Lake City resident Chanda Johnson drives a roller
for S.R. 21 B resurfacing, now ongoing.


Lake Region:
Traffic. at the site could
become even more intense
once Alachua County's Hatchet
Creek 'Development on S.R. 26
is built.
Work on the overpass was
scheduled to begin J uly6 and the
project will take approximately
two )ears to complete. During
construction. traffic will either
"be 'detoured--or-- shifted onto
temporary\ lanes, but motorists
will still have access to U.S.


301 from S.R. 26.
Access to the existing S.R..
26 will also be maintained after
the overpass has been built.
Southland Construction, Inc.
of Apopka has been hired to
do the work ;i3 a cost of $9.9
million.The project is federally
funded.

which is often
Let's see-did \we leave
anything out? Oh, baby crawl,
dog show, fireworks? We got
'em.
-;And so it' was that a small
staff of Our Country Day
organizers and a devoted
handful of volunteers put on the
town's biggest extravaganza for
another year. Those organizers
and perehniel volunteers are
-now hitting their 40s and
-higher, and despite the fact that
they're getting tired, they still
do it every year.

"Past, present and future"
was the theme for this year's
event.
Among those dedicated
volunteers were Lee and
Kathyleen Hardage, Janean
Sapp, Mary Lou Hildreth,
iDebbie Strickland, Mike
IHiggenbothom and a host of
-others vital to the day.
There are sponsors too,
.including the City of Keystone.
,Heights, which gave $500.
;The Clay County Tourism
:Development Council gave
'the group $1,200. Corporate
sponsors included Johnny's
-Barbecue, The Sportsman's
,Club, M&S Bank, Hitchcock's
S$uperValu and Florida Rock.
This year, individual donors also
'gave substantial donations.

�: "The crowd looks good,"
said Kathyleen Hardage at the
-street dance last Friday night.
: "Talk to the Car Quest people.
Folks were buying all kinds of
Sports for their automobiles and
- lawn mowers and stuff- they're
cutting back. It looks like more


people will be staying at home
this year, and that's good for
us," she said.
Hardage said a large portion
of the costs are funded by beer
sales at the street dance and
vendor rentals all weekend,
in addition to the generous
contributions from sponsors.

This year the OCD committee
also offered day-glow products,
to raise funds. The necklaces
and swords are big hits with kids
and adults too, but according
to OCD Commander Heather
Prezkuta the hot item was the
beer mug that glowed in the
dark and blinked,

"We sold them for $7 without
a beer and $10 if you wanted a
beer in it," Prezkuta said. The,
OCD committee sold its entire
stock of mugs in the first two
hours. All funds after expenses
go toward this year's and next
year's celebration.
Young people hanging around
outside the street dance barrier
have caused problems in years
past. Prezkuta said on Tuesday
that increased lighting and
stepped-up security throughout
the shopping center parking lot
helped make the street dance a
calmer family event.

Noticeable at the parade on
Saturday were a number of
businesses. Real estate dealer
Helen Hersey is an annual
tradition, but other businesses
appeared for the first time, like
CVS whose staff walked the
parade route handing outday-
of-the-week pill dispensers and
sugarless candy.
Providing what could become
the first unofficial official
seating were three aluminum
pre-kindergarten .risers set up
along Lawrence Boulevard.


The risers were made by G&A
manufacturing and, according
to businessman John Hoffman,
who put them there, each riser
weighed about 50 pounds.
They were just the right size
for stadium seating along the
boulevard.
Neumann's John Deere
Tractor from Orange Park
nodded to the day's theme with
its message, "The past paid
dearly for the future."
Also this year were two Party
Brahma bulls, one rideable arid
the other a frisky calf. They
marched down the street with
their duck and goose in tow.
A Lake Area Ministries
float \\on an overall best prize
at the parade. The float was
sponsored by city hall and built
by Mayor Hildreth and her
crew of volunteers.

Prezkuta said the group's
third year of fireworks at the
Twin Lakes Park site 'vent
smoothly, since the committee
now\ has some experience 'to
draw from. Electric golf carts
helped get revelers from the
parking area to the park.

The OCD committee also
nixed the annual fish fry after it
failed to sell enough dinners to
make the hugeeffort worthwhile.
Other food vendors took up the
slack, which took pressure off
the OCD volunteers.

The fireworks _program
included a special prelude and
a moment of silence dedicated
to the memory of David Payne.
The late pyrotechnician helped
build the OCD fireworks
display into the size anid scope
it now enjoys. Payne, another
dedicated volunteer to Our
Country. Day events, died of
cancer last year.


OCD Parade Commander Heather Prezkuta waved to the parade crowd.

The Keystone Heights
Woman's Club will have a

contentious discussion on the
question."Does the city need.to
be in the airport business?"
Put into a more positive
light, the council discussed
alternatives for airpark
governance. Hildreth proposed
making the airport a Special
Independent Taxing District.
"This creates more
accountability and relieves the'
city from liability." Hildreth
said. "Even though we would
own it. it would become an
independent . special taxing
district and the airpark would
he run by professionals," the
mayor said.
Councilman Bruce Harvin,
for the second time in a public
meeting, proposed selling the
airport to a public or even a
private entity for somewhere
.between $21 million and $42
million.
The sale would generate
sufficient funds to reimburse


from 9 a.m. to noon. The sale
will be held at the clubhouse
at 6747 Womans Club Rd.
Hardback books will sell for
$1 and paperbacks for 50 cents.
The sales collection will include
all types of books, including
fiction and non-fiction, history,
travel, religious, cooking,
autobiography, some children's,
art, and romance.
Coffee and assorted pastries
will also be sold. For additional
information,call LaDonna Hart
at (352) 473-4165.

Clay County
plans back-to-
school clinics
The Clay County Health
Department and St. Vincent's
Mobile Health Unit will
provide two free clinics lor
Clay County school children.
The clinics will offer free back-
to-school immunizations and
school physical.
The first clinic was held on
July 6. The second clinic will
be held Tuesday, J.uly 14, from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Wilkinson
Elementary, 4965 C.R. 218,
in Middleburg. A parent or
guardian must come with the
child and bring the child's shot
card or shot record.

.for airpark projects over the
years, he said, and the city
vould still have enough funds
to complete . various city
projects.
"If we're looking for revenue
for the city, that's what I'm
looking for, bottom line,"
Harvin said. He suggested
the airpark sale would relieve
the tax burden on Keystone
Heights residents; instead of
increasing it.
It was clear the council had
insufficient information on
either plan to even discuss
the matter in any depth. KAA
Chairman' Noel Thomas was
charged with gathering more
information on the likelihood of
either plan coming to fruition,
now or at any point in the
future, and the pathway the

Hot pancakes start

Melrose Masonic
Lodge 89, has revived its
pancake breakfast, a once-
annual July 4th event.
Last year, the lodge didn't
run the breakfast because
they didn't have, enough,
members and volunteers
to handle the work. This
time round they had a
few new members and
decided to pick up where
they left off.
Though called the
Melrose Lodge, it's
actually located in
Keystone Heights on
Palmetto Street behind
Ace Hardware.
Lodge members like
Jack Duane, Jack Bennett,
Tom Jones and others said
the event has always been
popular. "People lined up
out the door," Jones said.

notification of

sexual

Union County Sheriff Jerry

notice to residents that Vernon

residing at 5689 SW C.R. 239
in Lake Butler.
The residence is

Godbolt is under the
supervision of the Florida
Probation and Parole
Commission. Gddbolt has
strong sanctions against him
including curfews and is not
allowed to be around parks,
playgrounds, bus stops or any
other place where children
congregate.
Whitehead stated that
deputies will also keep
Godbolt under strong
surveillance to ensure he
abides by those state-imposed
sanctions. Whitehead also
stated that the protection of
children far outweighs any
considerations of privacy on
the part of this predator.

No evidence

uniforms
reduce

discipline
problems
Dear Editor:
Last year, many parents felt
blindsided by the Bradford
County School Board as they
passed a uniform policy for
Bradford Middle School a few
weeks before the 2008-2009
school year began. Many parents
were outraged that the board
voted on a policy that impacted
family finances and students'
freedom without seeking parent
input. However, seeing that the
board presented the policy as a
"pilot" study for one year, many
parents decided to back off and
give the board the opportunity to
show that uniforms could make
an impact on student discipline
and academic achievement.
I was again outraged when the
board voted to continue the
uniform policy for another year
despite a recommendation to
discontinue the policy by the
superintendent and a parent
survey that showed two-thirds of
parents were against uniforms
("Board ignores survey to
support uniforms," Bradford
County Telegraph, May 28,
2009).
After talking to each board
member by phone, I was
shocked that none of them
bothered to look at data from the
middle school (regarding their
stated objectives to reduce
referrals and increase academic
achievement) before voting to
continue the pilot program.
Board members told me that the
decision was based on anecdotal
evidence (informal talks with
parents) and gut feelings of
middle school teachers rather
than on data. It seems there was
no pilot steering the "pilot"
program, so no data was
gathered this past year on the
original stated objectives.
Now the board wants a second
chance to try to prove their
:irs."-JXhat' uniforms r, ke a
.djferene. '- :,-::.
Since the school board
members were not interested in
looking at data, I; requested and
easily obtained the disciplinary
referral data for both the, 2007-
2008 and 2008-2009 school
years. I found answers to the
following questions.
* Were dress code violations a
big problem at the middle school
to begin with? Only 13 referrals
were written for dress code
violations at the middle school
during the 2007-2008 school
year (the year before the
uniform policy was introduced).
Many parents were led by the
board and middle , school
administrators to believe that
dress code violations were a
major distraction for teachers
and interfered with learning.
During the 2008-2009 school
year, 58 dress code violation
referrals were written during the
"pilot" uniform policy.
. Did the uniform policy
reduce discipline referrals
overall at the middle school?
The policy failed to significantly
reduce referrals at the middle
school-there was a mere 3
percent reduction of referrals
overall between the 2007-2008
and 2008-2009 school years. All,
other schools in the county saw
higher percentages of
reductions in disciplinary
referrals for the 2008-2009
school year without a uniform
policy. The board's half-baked

"pilot" study replicated the
findings of formally conducted
research on uniform policies-
by themselves, uniforms have no
effect on educational outcomes.
SWhat will we be .able to
learn from another year of.the
"pilot" program? Next year the
middle school is instituting a
disciplinary referral reduction
program in addition to requiring
uniforms. When the data for
next year is examined, it will be
IMPOSSIBLE to tell what effect
uniforms have on discipline
referrals because the school is
trying to influence an outcome
using two strategies at onbe.
Several board members told
me I was the only one who had
called to express disdain
concerning the uniform policy. I
am concerned when elected
officials restrict the freedoms of
citizens who elected them into
office with no rational support
for their decisions. I urge
concerned people to contact
board members and sign an
online petition against uniforms
by going to

New bill is
all pain, no gain
Iear Editor,
Last week HR2454, a
1200-page climate bill,
passed the U.S. House of
Representatives by eight votes.
It is referred to as the "Cap and
Trade Bill' designed to cause
our American businesses and
industries to reduce carbon
emissions, thus protecting us
from Global Warming. Since
85 percent of U.S. energy
comes from carbon producing
sources, nearly all forms of
energy use will become more
expensive due to the necessity
to buy permission to emit a
constantly declining amount of
carbon dioxide every year.
Therefore, this carbon reducing
system contains a tax on
energy that will be passed on
to us, the consumers. The
problem is that according to
the Institute f-.r ' Efii g\ "
"'Rieeatch'it i's estimated thiat"-
the controls in this bill would
reduce the global temperature
by only one hundredths of one
degree Celsius by 2050. This
is hardly a "save the earth"
goal. Is it? Then what is this
bill? A closer examination of.
the intent of our Congress,
instead of "war on poverty," it
seems to be a ' "war on
prosperity!"
According to the Heritage
Foundation's Center for Data
Analysis, over the next 15
years gasoline prices will go
up by 58 percent, natural gas
prices will increase by 55
percent, home heating oil by
56 percent and worst of all,
electricity will jump by' a
whopping 90 percent!' Every
year the household pocketbook
will be hit again and again.
The average per-family-of-four
cost for electricity only will
immediately rise by nearly
$3.000 the first year. By the.
next 15 years our annual
increase will be more than
$4,500 and total tax aggregate
over this time period will cost
us nearly $72,000. Whether
you live in the County or the
City of Starke instead of
utility costs coming down, our
bills are going to sky rocket!
Proponents of this bill
praised the fact that it would
create new "green" jobs. But
including the ne\\ jobs created.
the Labor Department has


estimated that 1.1 million net
jobs will be lost due to this
bill. Particularly hard hit will
be manufacturers, farmers,
construction, machinery,
electrical equipment and
appliances, transportation,
textiles, paper products,
chemicals, plastics and rubbers
and last but not least, the retail
trade. Virtually every business
in this country will be affected
by this legislation.
If' our national leaders are
truly concerned about global
warming then why are they
supportive of exempting
Mexico, China and Russia
from the International Kyoto
Treaty on Global Warming? If
our country will be using less
energy and manufacturing less,
but consumption remains at
the same level, China will be
manufacturing more, using
more energy and creating more
carbon output that will offset
our carbon reductions. This
doesn't make sense. After all,
it's global wanning, not
American warming!
This "Cap and Trade Bill"
has essentially nothing to do
with the environment and more
t do with . "capping"
productivity and prosperity and
"trading" on fear and lies. It's'
not over yet. I urge my fellow
Bradford Countians to contact
our Senators. Bill Nelson and
Mel Martinez., Tell them we
support our environment but
this bill is nothing more than
the biggest tax hike in our
nation's history. Urge them to
vote against this bill! Save
America and save the earth
with a better plan.
Darrell O'Neal

Check out
these statistics
Dear Editor:
Here are some of the latest
statistics people might be
interested in:
* The top one percent of
U.S. households earn 19
percent of the nation's income
and despite popular belief pay
a whopping 28 percent of all .
la\es.
blind Americans cannot read
Braille.
* Fifty-seven percent of
American adults have never
lived outside the state they
were born in and 37 percent
haven't even left their
hometown.
* In America, 25.1 percent of .
the population claim to be
Catholics. Fifteen point eight
percent claim to be Baptist;
Fifteen percent are unbelievers.
(up from eight percent in
1990). That means that the
remaining 44.10 percent are
divided between those of the
Jewish, Muslim, Methodist,
Mormon, Hindu, etc. faiths.
* One in six American
households have abandoned
their landlines and use only
cell phones.
* Fifty-four percent of.
Icelanders don't deny the
existence of elves.
How great is America.

City utilities
ready for
season storms
Dear Editor:
June I marked the beginning
of the 2009 hurricane season.
While we at the city of Starke
hope this season is a mild one,
we also want to remind you
that your hometown utility is
prepared to provide reliable
electric service in any weather
or time of year.
One question we sometimes
hear is whether a municipal
electric utility has the
resources to provide reliable
service and timely restoration
in the event of a natural
disaster. In fact, community-
owned utilities have an
exceptional track record of
reliable service. Our utility
service's reliability is
supported by our local
presence and our statewide
alliances with other municipal
utilities.
At the City of Starke, we
live in this community and we
know the area and its residents.
If you ever have a problem
with your service, you can call
and talk to someone right here
in town. When we dispatch our
line crews to take care of a
problem, they get there quickly
because they live and work
here, and they know their town
and its electric system.
Municipal electric utilities
work together to combine the
personal service of a local
utility with the resources of a
statewide organization. If we
are ever hit by a major storm,
our utility participates in a
mutual aid .agreement with
other municipal utilities ,
statewide. If we take a hit, they
will come help us, and if they
are hit; we can help them. We
even have connections with
municipal utilities in other
states, so we can be sure to
have the resources we need,
even in a worst-case scenario.
This agreement had worked
well for a number of years. It
is just one of many examples
of how municipal utilities
work together for the shared
benefit of their communities.
So, although we hope for a
mild and trouble-free hurricane
season, we want you to know
your hometown utility has the
community power and
statewide strength to provide
reliable service in any season.

WWII should
be taught
to our children
Dear Editor:
The editorial written by
Buster Rahn in last Thursday's
Telegraph was, to me, very
timely and to the point. At no
time in the history of this
nation did this country's
constitutional form of
government need to be
protected and saved more than
during World War II.
Unfortunately, our public
school system has ignored the
importance of this country's
involvement and contribution
,to the outcome, of that, the
most important war of the 20h
century and our, school's
dismal failure to pass along the

essential elements of that war
to our children is an insult to
all of those who fought and
those who made the supreme
sacrifice so that we could
continue to cherish our way of
life.
That war cost the lives of
500,000 American servicemen.
It also cost the lives of
millions . of Europeans,
Germans and Russians,
Chinese and Russians and
Japanese. Jews alone lost six
million lives to the hands of
the Nazis along with five
million civilians. And yet our
children, since that war, have
not had the opportunity to
learn about these sacrifices that
were made to preserve our way
of life.
To examine the whys and
wherefores of this question, I
do not believe that we have to
go beyond precepts, attitudes
and liberal belief of the
academia that prevails our
school system, beginning with
our kindergarten and goes to
the very top of our college
process.
To everyone who reads this
letter and who may have a
thread of doubt, I suggest you
ask your children or someone
else's child questions about the
effects of World War II had we
not won it.
Next, ask our bureaucrats
and politicians why they are
not insisting our public and
state-supported private schools
teach the lessons about the war
that cost the lives of
52,199,262 men, women and
children, worldwide.

Observe
Mother Nature
Dear Editor:
I believe if we studied and
paid attention to nature, we
would benefit from it..
Biology teaches that humans
are the most intelligent animals
on earth. After what some
humans are doing, I think
some are less intelligent than
the lower classed animals.
Men marrying men and
women marrying w'omen-
nature teaches against this.
You'll never see wild animals
loving on the same sex animal.
God made every living thing
after its'own kind. I've always
been interested in nature. Pay
attention to the wildlife around
you.
S.hen .1 ,bj,ih, t, .4..ay. s. .be .

with all wildlife. Snakes are
the lowest graded animal, but
when the female has babies,
they will all be the same breed.
I believe God meant for each
kind to mix with its own kind.
If not. why did He make
different colors in all of us
animals?
Wild animals stick to this
rule of Mother Nature and
nature is the only guide they
have to go by. Look at all the
species of fish in all the bodies
of water. They only have what
God laid down for" Mother
Nature to attend to. You don't
see a whale having a baby
shark. This is true in all living
animals except humans. They
want to set their own rules
caring less if they're right or
wrong. This is the way I wais
taught and the way I believe.


going.

I hope that my
achievements in life
shall be these - that I
will have fought for
what was right and fair,
that I will have risked
for that which
mattered, and that I will
have given help to
those who were in
need, that I will have
left the earth a better
place for what I've
done and who I've
been.

Youth wants to
work; hire him
Dear Editor:
It has come to my attention
that a taxpayer funded
organization titled
FloridaWorks has a summer
program that will hire 14-year-
olds. Normally, 15 is the age
most require for employment.
When I heard about this
organization, my 14-year-old
and I were very excited. He
wants to work for the summer
and thought he'd have to wait
another year before anyone
would hire him.
I visited this organization
with my son's application in
hand and was told to provide
copies of his Social Security
card, birth certificate and six
months of pay stubs for those
who are employed and living
in the household. Right away I
knew that my son's
opportunity to work this
summer would solely depend
on income. My husband and I
are both employed and work
very hard to scrape by. This
does not mean that my child is
not entitled to compete by way
of application, experience and
qualifications fln a summer
job.
If employed, my son would
not have to contribute to the
household expenses., his
money would be his money.
This organization, it seems,
caters to those receiving public
assistance. Of course there are
the select few who honestly
need public assistance. The
majority, however, could get
out and work just like the rest
of us.
Parents are supposed to set
examples for their children.
FloridaWorks' expects teens
from non-working, public
assistance receiving families to
work. Unfortunately. the only
example that these children are
being taught is you don't have
to work and you still receive a
check each month.
It's a shame that teens
summer job eligibility depends
on their family's overall
income. What happened to the
oldie but goody way of life, "if
you work, you eat: if you don't
work. you don't eat."
I just thought those of you

Community has stepped up support of Bradford Food Pantry


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph SlaJf W1 riler
Helping those in need is
\vhat the Bradford Ecumenical
Ministries Food Pantry is all
about, but in order to do so, the
Food Pantri relies upon help
itself.
In that regard. the Bradford
County community\ has
stepped up to the plate. It has
done so since the Food
Pantry's inception, according
to volunteer Ruth Johns, but
the community has perhaps
made its biggest impact this
ye'ar when'food has been hard
to come by.
Arley McRae, the director of
the Food Pantry, said the
Second Harvest food bank out
of Jacksonville has been the
biggest' supplier of food in
years past, but the Food Pantry
has not gotten much except
USDA items from Second
Harvest in' well over six
months. Yet the Food Pantry is
on a pace to still feed the same
number of people as it did in
2008.
"The community support for
the Food Pantry is there in
spades," McRae said. "We
really appreciate it, too.
They've done a wonderful job.
The more people do, the more
they want to do. That's what
we're seeing right now. It's
just. a multiplying effect.
That's what's kept us in
business."
The Food Pantry, an

emergency food source,
provided food, in the form of
5,015 bags, to a total of 10,318
people last year. Through May
of this year, 4,025 people had
been fed. Funds generated
from a concert by entertainer
James Rogers an6 a U.S.
Postal food drive have helped
tremendously, with the postal
food drive contributing
approximately 4,600 pounds of
food to Food Pantry. Such
annual events as the Lillian
Stump Walk for Hunger and a
first-time event, the First
Christian Mini Tri-Athlon, will
also benefit the Food Pantry
this year.
Johns, who has worked with


the Food Pantry for more than
20 years, said the community
has always supported the Food
Pantry and gotten it through
some tough times.
"They've really kept us
going in the times where we
were in need," Johns said.
Also helping the Food
Pantry's cause is Children's
Table, an organization that
provides fresh produce in
i Bradford, Union, Alachua and
Levy counties. This produce
comes from local farms, grants
and Farm .Share, an
organization that salvages
produce that does not go to
market because it is
misshapen, discolored, too

small, too big (r blemished in
any way.
Through Children's Table,
distribution was made this year
of 600,000 pounds of
watermelons and cantaloupes
in the four counties the
organization serves.
"What that does, it takes
pressure off the *Food Pantry
when we get stuff in like that,"
McRae said. "People use that
as opposed to having to go to
the Food Pantry."
The Food Pantry gets food
from the Starke Pizza Hut once
a week and still gets bakery
items from two Publix stores
in Gainesville every weekend.
SThese items are past the sell-
by date, but still good for
consumption.
"We go every Saturday
morning and Sunday
morning," McRae said. "We
get somewhere around 500
pounds a week of bread and
pastries. We're hoping to
reestablish the delicatessen
items as well, but we're not
quite there yet."
The Food Pantry's goal is to
provide a family with enough
'food to last for seven days.
Each family is limited to
obtaining food at the Food
Pantry once in a three-month
period. Food items include
canned vegetables and fruit,
dry beans and rice, pasta and
pasta sauce, soup and the
following limited to families
with children: dry milk, peanut
butter and jelly.
The biggest concern, McRae
Said, is. being able to provide
people with a source of
Proteinn. A vendor that works
with Naval Air Station
Jacksonville has provided
some help in that regard.
Whenever the vendor has ,a
sale, it allows the Food Pantry
to take advantage of it as well.
resulting in the Food Pantry
being able to provide items
such as hot dogs, sausage and
bologna.
Cereal is hard to come by,
McRae said, adding that it's
also expensive. What \he Food
Pantry does, he said, is
substitute' the breads and
pastries it obtains from the
Publix stores for cereal.
The goal is not just to hand
out any 'food item, but to try to
supply people with as balanced
of a diet as possible. McRae
said it's a testament to the hard


work put in by Tom Jones, the
Food Pantry food coordinator,
that people take home bags of
various foods,
"He does a wonderful job,"
McRae said. "He's always
looking for another source (of

Zach Crawford (second from right), a 2008 Bradford High School graduate, signs a

Brevard gives BHS grad


chance to return to the field


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Two years have passed since
Zach Crawford last played
football, but the 2008 Bradford
High School graduate is ready
to step back onto the field for
Brevard (N.C.) College.
Crawford recently signed a
letter-of-intent to play for the
Division II Tornados, who
play in the South Atlantic
Conference. He is ready to
make his return to the football
field after having last played in
the spring of 2007 at BHS.
Academic qualifications
prevented him from playing in
the fall.
"It's going to be a lot of
pressure," Crawford said. "I
think I'll be ready."


Crawford, who has been
attending Santa Fe College
since graduating from BHS,
believes he is not only
mentally ready to return to the
field, but physically ready as
well after working out with
Shawn Jenkigs at S&J Fitness
in Starke. His work at the
fitness center is really -what
made his mind up on whether
or not to try to return to
football.
Several schools were willing
to give Crawford a chance, but
he said a recruiting visit to
Brevard sold him on the
school. He likes the small-
town'atmosphere and enjoyed
meeting the coaches, a group
of '"amazing guys," he said,
who welcomed him with open
arms.


Crawford last played the
position of wide receiver, but
he is heading to Brevard to
compete at quarterback.
The fact that Crawford has
another chance to football can
be chalked up to remaining
level-headed and having a
never-say-diC attitude, he said.
Now, it is hard for Crawford
to describe his feelings on
getting this opportunity. Joy
has to be the overwhelming
emotion, he said. Something
he has wanted since he was a
little kid is coming to fruition.
"I'm very excited," he said.
Crawford will actually
return to Florida to start the
season as Brevard opens its
slate Aug. 29 in Jacksonville
against Edward Waters at 5
p.m.

COACH
Continued from page 6B

employed b\ former Bradford
lead coach Bob Gearhart and
former junior varsity coach
Rob Norman.
"1 think they were great
coaches here during their
time." Chandler said. "I have
implemented some things from
their playhook.''

Gearhart -and Norman
obviously had an impact on


Chandler, as did the former
Kiwanis Club of Starke
Christmas .tournament, which
used to he held on an annual
basis. The tournament was
something he viewed as
tradition growing up and
something Chandler would
like to see again. It would give
the players something to call
their own and something to
play hard for.,
"I think it's important we try
to get that established,".
Chandler said.
Being in a position to try to
reestablish thal tournament ris
something.(handler would not
have envisioned rot too lon g.
ago. When he was approached
about the coaching position, he
admitted it was something he
had to give some seriois-
thought to, but once he did, he
felt that taking the reins of his
alma mater's team was
soniething he was meant to do.
"I did not expect to be back
in Starke as the new licad
basketball coach," Chandler
said. "but if you see an
opportunity, -you've got to
jump for it."

RUN
Continued from page 2B

After he came in, Beck took
a'quick breath, then went back
to the finish line to cheer on
other runners.
Jacksonville resident Joy
Murphy was the first female
runner to cross the finish line,
with a time of 21.03.
Clay County fireman and


marathon runner Rollie Zike
ran but didn't place. He got
there late, he said, wheni a
fellow fireman didn't show up
in time to relieve him at the
station.
Gainesville resident, Kenny
Sparrow finished with a 27.20
time. He said he especially
enjoyed his jaunt through the
Keystone Heights
neighborhoods.
Ryan Collins, 14, finished at
23.20. He said he felt good
about his run, but that final hill
up Lawrence Boulevard right
at the finish line was hard.
"You just have to save up
for the end," he said. Ryan and
his family are St. Johns County
residents, but maintain a
vacation and weekend home in
the Keystone Heights area.



FOOD
Continued from page 5B
from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. It is
staffed completely by
volunteers. The goal, McRae,
said, is to have three people
working there every day.
"You need one to take care
.of the customer, one to be
bagging up and one to be
restocking," he said.
June Thornton has been
volunteering her time at the
Food Pantry since its inception
in 1989. "Just to know that
we're helping people" makes it
a. worthwhile endeavor, she
said.
Ernest Beemen has not
worked there as long,just three
to four years, but serving
people at the Food Pantry has
impacted his life as much as
anyone who has worked there
for a long time, such. as
Thornton or Johns.
"It makes you feel good to
help people less fortunate than
you are," Beemen said.
Beemen said people serviced


by the Food Pantry are ver',
appreciative. In fact, Johns told
of a man who had picked up
food for his family at an eari!wr
date returning to the Fco 'd
Pantry July 6 just to sj\
thanks.
What really touches John'"
heart, though, is whenever the
Food Pantry can help but "I
family that includes children.
She loves to see the smiles on
the little faces when they .iie
able to enjoy something tbe\
have not had in a while, st.ch
as a cookie.
"They're so pleased," Johns
said.
Of the 10,318 people fed lIit
year by the Food Pantry, 5,05 I
were children. Since its
inception, the Food, Pantry has
helped provide food to 43,193
children and 87,700 people
overall.
This year's numbers are as
follows:
* January-823 fed (439
adults, 384 children), 503 bags
