LB in good 09-10 shape


2009-2010
proposed budget
slightly more than
current year.
BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN ... --..
Times Staff Writer
At the July meeting of the.
Lake Butler City Commission,
City Manager John Berchtold
presented the commissioners
with the proposed budget for
the 2009-2010 fiscal year.
The budget proposal is $2.26
million, roughly $15,Q00
above last year's annual
budget for the city.
That may all change,
however, because just like
everyone else planning a
budget, there is an uncertainty
of revenue distributions from
the state of Florida. The
millage rate of 2.245 is the
same as last year, but this may
vary when the final assessment
values are determined. This
places the city's estimated
revenue from ad valorem
taxes at.$134,000, just about
the same as last year.
"I am pleased to report that
the general fund balance of
$475,439 remains intact,"
Berchtold said, "and should


something unexpected
come up, these funds are
available."
The city is able to make
good use of enhanced revenues
now being received-from the
Department of Corrections'for
monthly overages in water and
sewer fees for the Reception
and Medical Center.
Last year's budget figures
had to be inflated due to the
rise in the cost of fuel, which
was up to over $4 a gallon this
time last year.
The city's revenues are down
by $39,000, mostly due to the
large drop is state revenue
sharing of $51,000. Also
notable is that occupational
licensing revenues were
budgeted at $24,600 for 2008-
2009, but dropped to $10,045
for 2009-2010. Berchtold said
that is mainly because the
city clamped down on the car
tent sales at Sprinkle Field
and began charging fees for
them to temporarily operate a
business in Lake Butler. Also,
due to lowered interest rates,
which are generally thought
to be a good thing, the city
will take a loss of $5,600 in
interest income.
Notable expense-changes
include a more than $80,000
increase in sewer operations.
The majority ofthis,($62,000),
is in capital outlays for the


replacement of two trucks,
two blowers, aeration df the
spray field and a supply pump
for the lift station.
At a time when most cities
in the state are experiencing
a decrease in gross taxable
values, Lake Butler is seeing
an increase by more than
$338,000. According to Union
County Property Appraiser
Bruce Dukes, more than 75
percent of that total is from
the completion of just one
new residential home inside
the city limits.
Berchtold has also requested
that the commissioners
consider a three-percent
raise for all city employees,
something that caused a bit
of controversy last year, with
some commissioners rejecting
the ideaatfirst.Commissioners
were also given pause at the
$4,200 annual stripend for
each employee to seek their
own individual health care
plans, a cost Berchtold said
does not even come close to
the average annual cost 'for
single coverage.
As required by law,proposed
millage rates for city and
county property owners are-
to be mailed by Sept. lThe
city commissioners will hold
a public hearing on Tuesday,
Sept. 15, to. adopt a tentative
budget and millage rate.

to stop it and make it right,"
Thomas said.
Chandler said . Thomas
couldn't make that call without
the board's approval, but Thqmas
said he' wouldn't have done
things differently. If. something
"detrimental" or "wasteful" was
happening with county money,
he was going to take a stand
against it, he'said.
Chandler not only said: tht
stand was "wrong," he said it
was "illegal" if not backed by the
other commissioners.
"You can do what you want
to-you're a grown man-but it's
wrong," Chandler said.
Thomas conceded the point,
but again said he was looking out
for taxpayers.
Commissioner John Wayne
Hersey agreed with Chandler,and
said the board-which was sold
on the chip seal process when
the contract was approved-
should have, in retrospect,
chosen a smaller stretch of road
to experiment 'on. Still, he said
FHP should have been allowed
fix issues on Rising Road,just as
any contractor laying traditional
asphalt-or completing any
other project-would have been
allowed to do.
Thomas said the county would
be better off investing in asphalt
to provide a longer lasting surface
for all three roads, and he called
upon the county's engineer,
Jerome Kelley to confirm that
would be the case. Kelley said, in
his opinion, asphalt paving would
make for a "much better road."
Chip seal should be reserved
for dead-end residential streets
without a lot of traffic, Kelley
said. The roads in question did
not qualify.
The board knew it was trying
something new by approving chip
seal on these roads, Chandler
said, the goal being to pave
more roads with less money. If
the commission votes to go with
asphalt that's fine, but that would
slow down the paving process.
again, he said. MosebBopayers.
would prefer chip seal to a dirt
road, he said, but they would not
want to pay higher taxes for an
asphalt road.
There are differences between
chip seal and asphalt, including
smoothness and appearance of
the pavement surface, Siffert
said, but you can also "pave a lot
more dirt" with chip seal than
with asphalt.
"At this point, it's just up to
the board which you're better
serving your taxpayers (with),"
,he said, adding there are a lot
of counties that .feel taxpayer.
dollars. are better spent on chip
seal and other counties that won't
consider it.

Pure Energy Solar of
Gainesville installed the
system at Ambient Air. Solar
panels can be installed free
standing on the ground or
attached to the building they"
serve. Crew leader Jason
Irwin said the 25 kW system
at Ambient Air consisted of
more than 150 panels on the
roof. Direct current from the
panels travels to the inverters,
which converts the current
to alternating current, the
form in which electricity
is delivered to homes and
businesses, he said.

While expensive, the panels
have a 25-year warranty and can last
twice as long, according to Irwin.
Most systems are tied into the grid
so owners can take advantage of
net metering. While the renewable
generation credit rate is much less than
the retail rate for a business in the city
of Starke, which is around 16 cents
per kWh (the commercial rate plus the.
current fuel adjustment), the city could
not afford to pay above what FMPA is
providing as the renewable generation
credit.
The city will, however, have more
information available on how business
can take advantage of this program.
Not all solar systems have to be tied
into the grid to sell back power, of
course. There are stand-alone systems
that store excess power in batteries for
times when conditions are not ideal
for solar energy prodtiution. There are
also blended systems that incorporate
batteries as well as grid tie-ins.

Each veterans service officer is a
public servant, employed by the
taxpayers to assist and represent
the interests of veterans and their
beneficiaries.

veterans service officer. Most
benefits may be applied 'for

clarification or assistance, make

Our local teacher's :, - 'io- i s !ost touch
with reality. Recently, we reported that
our local school board agreed to do what
amounts to a tax swap to make money
available to give our teacher's a bonus.
The bonus plan. was rejected by the
union negotiators without even asking the,
teachers they represent to vote on it. The.
union's statement was that they weren't
persuaded that our local school system-
was suffering through a state of financial
urgency. Really?
Last year alone, our local school district
lost $1.8 million in funding. Additional
losses in the-coming year are a certainty.
Are the union negotiators blind?
We're the first to argue that teacher's
should be. paid more. No one really


No one really knows what lies ahead in
our economic futures. We do know that
Bradford County has been spared some of
the more severe economic woes that many
are suffering. We aren't entirely exempt
though, and for many here, the economy is
and has been taking its toll.
In Washington, there have always been
.two economic trains of thought. One is to
have the federal government borrow and.
spend billions of dollars to "stimulate" the
economy. The other is to cut taxes, put more
money in the pockets of taxpayers, and let
individuals "stimulate' the economy when .
they spend their tax savings. We probably
won't ever see it out of Washington, but the
best answer is probably somewhere in the
middle.
We are under no illusion that Washington
will get it right. Long lost is the time
when Washington did what was right for
the individuals that make up this great
country,
But that is not the case for local
government. Locally, it's time for our county
.-,nd,cjty government to step up and do what
is right for our local citize;is. Our county
property appraiser missed that opportunity
when recently he certified the value of,
the property in Bradford County. Contrary
to reality, he actually said that Bradford
County property values increased last year.
.If you ask any of the local governments.
around us, any real estate professional, or
any mortgage lender, they'd all tell you thde
values of our property have decreased--"


disagrees'.with that. But in time of tough
financial crunches, when you know the
state.is going to be cutting even more, it's
not the time to be asking for more. And it's
not' the time for the union representatives
to be-sticking their heads in the sand.
The superintendent and school board
should be applauded for being willing
and able to offer any additional pay for
our'teachers. And even more so-,when
you consider that they have avoided the
mass layoffs everyone feared. It shows
that their priorities are in the right place. To
have a union representative, outright reject
the offer and not even allow the teachers
an opportunity to vote on it is downright
wrong.

In 2007, a house for sale was appraised at
$105,000. Recently, that exact same house
came up for 'sale again. The appraisal
in 2009: $63,000. That's a 40 percent
decrease in value in only two years.

We. hope the , county and city
governments don't turn a blind eye and
deaf ear to what is happening as well. No
other entities in our county have as much.
power to stimulate our local economy as
do.our local governments-by substantially
reducing.ine millage rates we pay on our
properties.- A 10 to 15 percent reduction in
your property tax bill will put cash into your
pocket. You'll spend that cash (we hope
locally) and if the economists have it right,
every dollar you spend will turn over five to
seven times
In a nutshell, a $1. million dollar property
tax savings will provide up to a $7 million
boost to our local economy.

Nugent

recommends

replacement

while overseas

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph 'Editor

Among the guardsmen of the 631"
Maintenance Company mobilizing
for deployment is Starke City
Commissioner Danny Nugent.
Tuesday night, he recommended
his wife, Melissa. be allowed to serve
in his place as the representative of
city District 1.
Mayor Wilbur Waters said
he agreed with the request and
allowing it would mean a full board
seated with representation from all
districts.
"On the other hand," he joked,
"we might like her better than you."
Nugdqt praises his wife's
experience in finance and as a
certified appraiser.
Florida Statute allows the
commission to appoint someone
to fill the seat of an active military
member whose service extends
beyond 60 days until the elected
official returns or until the official
term in office has expired, whichever'
comes first.
Nugent's active duty begins
July 24, making his replacement's
appointment would be official
toward the end of September.
A majority. of commissioners
voted to approve the appointment,
with the exception of Commissioner
SCarolyn Spooner, who wanted input
from the district on who should
serve.
Nugents3 thanked ':V t-yobne who
'had shof'is ,4'i-F tti h fi'eead-up to
his deployment.
Only one race in

Starke election
Of the offices up for election in
the city of.Starke this year, only one
race-materialized.
District 4 Commissioner Tommy
Chastain is being challenged for his
seat by Jimmy Epps, former city
police chief.
Spooner, who represents District
2,oCity Clerk Linda Johns and Police
Chief Jeff Johnson were the only
qualifiers for their respective offices.
According to Johns, this means there
will only be one race on the ballot.
District 4 voters will go to'the
polls Tuesday, Sept. 1. The election
will take place at city hall from 7
a.m. to 7 p.m., with early voting to
be announced.

Spotlight on business: Tom Smith of Coldwell Banker


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
Just like many recent high
school graduates, Tom Smith
of Coldwell Banker, Smith &
Smith Realty of Starke had not
always known what he wanted
to be when he grew up.
After graduating from
Bradford High School in 1961,
he set out for a college degree
in business.
Smith is better known by his
nickname, "Tombo," although
he cannot recall h6ow-tffe fiire
-came about.
"I can't remember how it got
started, but that's what they
called me, even in newspaper
articles," he said.
In 1960, "Tombo" was a
running back on the undefeated
BHS football team. "Back
then, we didn't have state
championships, just the regular
season games and, if you were
good enough, a bowl game."
He and his teammates were
members of the very first
undefeated football team in
BHS history. Smith was also
a member of the 1961 state
championship. school track'
team.
After high school, Smith
attended the University of
Georgia, where' he worked
toward his business degree
before focusing on a major in
real estate. It was here that
he met Ingrid, his wife of 46


years.
After college, Name:
Smithwasemployed Age: 6

A friend who was For re
employed at The up, dej
Charter Company earned
headquartered in
Jacksonville told
him about a job
available in Miami. Once a
huge commercial mortgage
company with 180 subsidiaries
made up of banking, mortgage
and land development firms,
The Charter Company was a
Fortune 500 company in its
heyday.
"Real estate in Miami was
booming then," Smith said,
prompting him to eventually go
out on his own w;th Creative
Investment Services in Coral
Gables.
Business was good until
1987, when life down south
began to change 'radically
with the emigration of more
than 120,000 Cuban refugees,
who by all accounts, were
homeless and jobless. The area
was heavily hit with rioting
and crime, and in 1987, Smith

decided it was time to relocate
his family back to Starke.
By this time, the Smiths
had two children: Brad Smith,
a captain with the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office, and
Richard Smith, a Port Orange
real estate developer.
Ingrid began working for the
Bradford County Development
Authority and Tom went
into the residential appraisal
business.
After a couple of years,
Ingrid obtained her real estate
license and began working for
Roberts Realty. It was theifthat
a wonderful opportunity came
about: the Smiths were able
to buy the Coldwell Banker
franchise in 1994, where they
continue to handle real estate
listings in both Bradford and
Union counties as well as the


Kingsley Lake area.
"That first year, we were in
a building behind Dr. Leonard
Schlofman's optometry office,"
said Tom. "We needed a more
visible'location as well as more
office space." They found
just what was needed at their
present office location on Call
Street in Starke.
"I'm glad we made the move
back home, as it has worked out
real good for us," said Tom.
He remains a big supporter
of the BHS football program
and has served on the board at
Communities in Schools (CIS)
since its inception 10 years
ago.
CIS is a national program that
has served as a very successful
grant writing entity pursuing
private grants to fund programs


for Bradford County schools,
such as providing mentoring
and tutoring for the county's
youth.
Smith has also been heavily,
involved in the Northeast
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce, serving as the board
treasurer, and, at one time, as
the chamber president. Ingrid
was a big part of the Starke
Kiwanis Club for a number of
years.
When first becoming
involved in real estate sales,
one must become a licensed
real estate agent.
"I recommend attending
school at the Real Estate
Institute in Orange Park,"
said Tom. 'The classes are
intense and rather difficult as
they prepare you for the state
exam."


Smith said that all starting
agents must first put their
license under a real. 'estate
broker for at least two years
before deciding if they want to
branch out on their own as a
licensed real estate broker.
Agents work on a commission
only basis, generally splitting
that 50/50 with the established
broker, who carries fhe weight
of the established business and
years of experience.
"Becoming an agent is a
perfect job for someone who
doesn't need regular hours and
can remain flexible with their
time," said Smith.
Agents can make good
money, and some even consider
it as a part-time extra income
job while they work a full-time
job on weekdays.
To become a licensed broker
requires an additional 72
classroom hours of specific
Florida real estate courses.
.The Coldwell Banker
franchise has been a successful
part of Bradford County,
although Smith admits that in
a constantly changing market,
real estate sales aren't always
steady.
"There are lots of hills
and valleys in real estate, and
someone thinking about a
career in real estate must be
disciplined in the trade and have
good money sense, knowing
how to budget themselves,"
said Smith.


UC school board will set new rates July 28 MORE:
Continued from IL. 7A


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer

The Union County School
Board is preparing tax rates
for the 2009-201Q fiscal year.
The first budget hearing will
take place on Tuesday, July
28, at 6 p.m. in the district
office board meeting room.
Union County School
District Finance Director Mike
Shockley said that legislation
has revised the capital outlay
millage rate downward for the


second year in" a row.
"It went from 1.75 to
1.50 mills," said Shockley.
"Legislation also approved
a new millage rate of .250
which can be used for either
capital expenses or operational
expenses, known as the critical
needs millage rate."
If the school board votes to
approve this rate, it must be
approved by a super majority
which means four of the five
board members must vote in
favor.
"It is just a matter of


reducing one millage rate by
.250 and increasing another
rate by the same. amount,"
said Shockley.
The district will use the
funding for its-operational
expenses.. Shockley said he
also feels that it is in the
best interest of the district to
approve the new millage rate.
"The state's economic
condition is showing little, if
any, improvement," he said.
"We anticipate another budget
cut in the near future due to
revenue forecasts, which have


been-'lower than anticipated
for the last eight quarters."
Superintendent Carlton
Faulk said it is the right
decision to approve the rate
for a number of reasons.
First, he said, the federal
government has provided
funding for two years and
then it is gone. Secondly, the
critical needs village ivill
provide additional state funds
.to help replace some of the
$3 million reduction. to the
district's budget for the new
fiscal year.

on the Rails to Trails pathway
along S.R. 100. Sometimes one
or both were in a' motorized
wheel chair or scooter.
One afternoon, a mother
%\as on the trail teaching her
daughter to ride a bicycle
without training wheels.
By now. the trails are fairly
popular with people walking
their dogs.
Over a six-day period last
week, the Monitor editor took
seven drives along the Rails to
Trails pathway, parallel to S.R.
100. from the cemetery to Twin
Lakes Park, and then along
S.R. 21, to Gold Head Branch
State Park.
On the seven summertime
trips, he saw 18 bike riders,
three walkers and one (illegal)
golf can. At first, it appeared
pathay users were staying
close to town, but over the
period that proved not to be
the case, as more riders were
seen venturing out toward Gold
Head. .
Sunday and' Monday, late
afternoon and early evening,
were the busiest times on the.
trail, with groups of three
and four riders and walkers
at a time. On a weekday
morning, four schoolgirls on
summer vacation were out near
Walgreen's Pharmacy when the
temperature was in the high
70s.
Around Gas Line Road,
Austin Alvers, 19, said he got
up that morning and for no
particular reason decided to ride
to Gold Head. Alvers graduated
from Keystone Heights High


School two 3ears"ago. The
Keystone resident is going to
Santa Fe College, and works at
Johnny's Barbecue a few da s
a week and it as his day off.
Alvers said it wasn't the first
time he'd ridden out to Gold
Head. He had his tunes along
and said the ride %was a good
time to listen to music. He
didn't think the ride %%as bad;
there were uphill and do\ nhill
spots in both directions.
Just as Alvers rode off.
Theresa Pierson came b\. She


vays in


said she rode the
trail once in a
while. She didn't
think it was a hard
ride,and was more
concerned about
getting across the
S.R. 100-S.R. 21
intersection.
The day before,
she had been hit at
the traffic.light by
a truck that was
hit from behind,
by another driver.
"My bike
wound up under
the truck," she
said. She might
have been hurt if
she hadn't gotten
off her bike to get
it across the road.
"The light
needs to give
pedestrians a little
more time to get
across," she said.
: Big Tree Lakes
Estates resident
Joanne Turner
said she walks 'or
takes a bike. ride
two or three times
a week on her
lunch hour or after
work. Sometimes
she bikes with a
girlfriend.
"The cars along
the way are pretty
courteous when
you come up to
a crosswalk," she
said. She added
that she felt safe

LB cracks down on city code violators


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer
The city of Lake Butler's code
enforcement board recently
began exercising the use of
code enforcement officers for
violation issues that remain
unresolved.
For the months of May, June
and July, code enforcement
officers Lyn Williams and
Doug York assisted with 15
code violation complaints
within Lake Butler:
(1) Numerous complaints
were received about a resident's
dog running loose on S.E. 66t
Street. The dog owner was
notified of the violation and the
dog was resecured.
(2) A semi truck was
illegally parked on top of city
water pipes in no parking
zone at NW 3r Avenue and
NW 3ru Street.
(3) A malnourished dog
complaint was received from
SW 6th Avenue. Officers again
met with dog owner who stated
the pet had been under a vet's


care. The dog appears to look
better and meets all code
requirements. The dog owners
advised they would relocate
dog.
(4) A complaint was
received of a mobile vendor
selling fruits and vegetables
without a permit on the property
of Shatto Heating and Air.
Officers advised the vendor
of the code and instructed the
vendor to contact city hall for
the proper license.
(5) A junked vehicle on
concrete blocks was reported
at NE 2nd Street and Lake
Avenue. After being warned,
the.owner removed vehicle.
(6) A zoning violation was
reported of a proposed business
in city limits. (This is a possible
rezoning issue.) Officers met
with property owner and
advised that all zoning issues
must go though city hall.
(7) A report was received
of numerous vehicles parked at
S.R. 121 and SW 12t Avenue.
Officers met with the tenant
(who is running a repossession
business) and explained the


zoning violation. The tenant
agreed to remove the vehicles,
however, two weeks later, more
complaints were received.After
a follow-up visit, the tenant
appears to be slowly removing
vehicles. Code enforcement
will continue to monitor the
situation.
(8) A verbal warning was
given to a business owner to
remove junk behind a building
within 30 days.
(9) Two flatbed semi
trailers were illegally parking
on city property located on
the railroad bed in front of
Skip's Deli. Officers contacted--:
the owner of the trailers, who
removed them the same day.
(10) Two ATVs were
reported to be making ruts on
SW 4t Place, causing damage
to the city right of way. Officers
tried to catch the violators on
five different days.
(11) A zoning violation
was reported, involving a
person operating a commercial
business in a residential area.
The owner stated that he ran a
mobile vehicle repair shop, but


was found working on vehicles
at his residence. After officers
explained the code violation,
the owner removed all customer
vehicles from the residence.
(12) Two mobile vendors
were reported to be operating
without a license on Sprinkle
Field.
(13) A trash-nuisance
violation was reported at
residence on NW 10I" Avenue.
Officers inspected several times
and the owners began tearing
down the mobile home and
hauling it off. .
(14) A trash complaint was
received--about-the ice H'6ouse
on W. Main Street. The owner
was contacted about trash
piled around the self-serve
ice business and .stated the he
was. also concerned since his
trash cans were stolen over
the weekend. He stated he
performs regular cleanup after
each weekend.
(15) An abandoned Ford
Crown Victoria was reported
on NW 10t Avenue. Officers
red-tagged the vehicle to move
within 30 days. They later


reinspected and the vehicle was
gone.
In other business, the Lake
Butler city commissioners
unanimously voted to approve
the closing of NW 1st Street
behind the courthouse where
the jail is located.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead said
that the roadway (between NW
1st Avenue and Lake Street)
has always had signs posted
that it was closed to through
traffic, but more and more
vehicles are using the road,
p9.sing.a.possible security risk"
and inmate escape risk.
The sheriff's office plans to
install a chain link fence around
the area with an automated gate
for entrance of Department of
Corrections vehicles only.
The new. rate for water
hookup inside the Lake Butler
city limits is $651. Outside the
city limits, that rate is $814. To
tap into the city's sewer lines,
new property owners will pay
$1,284 inside the city limits and
$1,604 outside the city limits.
These new rates are lower


than those recommended in the
Florida Rural WaterAssociation
capacity analysis for both
water and sewer utilities for
Lake Butler. The association
recommended a connection
charge of $1,302 for water
and $2,568 for sewer, a total
residential connection fee of
$3,870 inside the city limits.
. City Attorney John Maines
reported that he has been met
with resistance from Stephen
Hendricks, owner of Hendricks
Sod Company, whose lease.
on the city spray field .was
terminated after the company
fell more than one year behind
on its lease. Maines said he
does not feel Hendricks will
make any effort to pay any past
due money owed to the city and
City Manager John Berchtold
agreed that Hendricks has
made up his mind not to pay.
Commissioners unanimously
voted to file suit against the
sod company.
Dog warden for the city,
Cody Douglas, reported nine
stray dogs picked up during the
month of June.


PENN:
Continued from p. 1A

Doty and two others tried to
gain entry into area homes.
Doty. a female and another
male were found riding together
in a red Jeep Cherokee. The
trio allegedly told the officer
they were selling vacuum
cleaners and magazines door
to door and had entered only
one home. The three raised
suspicions,' leading neighbors
to call authorities.
Doty told Deputy Murray
that his wallet had been stolen
in Jacksonville, and gave a false
name- Richard Thomas.
Furtherinvestigation revealed
Doty's true identity and BCSO


charged him with obstructing
justice as a disguised person
and being a fugitive from
justice.
According to the Erie Times-
News, Doty had been on the run
since March 19, after failing
to appear in court on $50,000
bail:
Doty is now being held in the
Bradford County Jail, awaiting
extradition to Erie County. If
extradited, he will serve his
sentence, which could range
from nine to 19 years.
In Bradford County, Doty's
bond on charges of obstruction
as a disguised person was set
at $1,000. He was being held
on no bond on the remaining
charges. As of Monday he was
awaiting extradition.

budget.


Summer

library

program

The next Union County
Public Library summer
program will be held today,
Thursday, July 23, at 10 a.m.
with the Great Ekujo African
Dance Ensemble, "We are
One." Come join the fun at
the library and experience
dance right from the heart of
Africa.


7th grade

booster shots

required
As with previous years,
law requires that all students
entering the seventh grade must


receive a'tetanus booster shot.
Effective with the 2009-2010
school year, the only acceptable
tetanus booster shot is the Tdap
vaccine. Tdap contains the
tetanus-diphtheria and pertussis
vaccines.
According to Winnie
Holland, administrator for the
Bradford and Union County
health departments, the reason
the normal tetanus booster
has been replaced with the
Tdap is because there has
been a resurgence of pertussis
(whooping cough) in the country
among teens and adults-even
among the elderly.
"The tetanus, diphtheria
and pertussis vaccine is given
to infants and it was once
believed there was no need to
give it beyond infancy. That
has now changed because of
the increase in the number of
cases of whooping cough," said
Holland.
Students entering seventh
grade will not be permitted to
attend school until proof of
properimmunization is received


as mandated by Florida law.
To receive the required
vaccination, parents should
either take their child to their
family pediatrician or to the
Bradford or Union County
health department. To contact
the health department, please
call (904) 964-7732 in Bradford
County or (386) 496-3211 in

College for Kids: a blend of education and fun


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Marina Minx sounds like a
typical college student when
she says it is sometimes tiring
walking from building to
building on campus to attend
her different classes, but she
said some people have a
tendency to look at her like she
is insane when she talks of
having to go to college.
People can be forgiven if
they are a tad confused when
Minx, a child of small stature,
talks of going to college. Minx
is preparing to enter the sixth
grade, but she is already
getting a taste of what college
is like as a participant in Santa
Fe College's annual College
for Kids program.
College for Kids, which has
been offered in Starke for the
past seven years, is a two-week

program for children who are
rising sixth-, seventh-, eighth-,
ninth- and 10l'-graders. Much
like college students of the
more traditional variety,
children register for classes,
attempting to fill a schedule
with six classes (three classes
for those attending the
program's half-day session).
"It gives you a sense of
responsibility," student Shelby
Clark said.
These students, however,
take a variety or courses that
are not typical college-student
fare. Course offerings allow
students to learn about and
make frontier toys popular in
days gone by, make kilts and
jewelry and cook such goodies
as fudge. Sure, there are
courses such as math and
science, but the emphasis is on
giving children a fun
experience. In fact, the math
course is called "Making Math
Fun," while the science course,
"Ooey Gooey Science," allows
kids to perform a variety of
experiments meant to rate high
on the wow-factor scale.
Such classes certainly
caught Kristapher James' eye
when a presentation on the
program was made at his
school.
"I saw some fun stuff," he
said, adding he was excited
about becoming a participant.
James and Minx are first-
time participants in the
program. James was looking
forward to taking the tennis
and "Got Game?" classes,
while Minx was looking
forward to the scrapbooking
class "Scrap , It" and
"Babysitting Survival 101."
-"I . .was really looking
forward to taking -babysitting
-,because I've always wanted to
be a really, really good
babysitter," Minx said.

scrapbooking classes have
turned out to be her favorite

James and fellow first-time

also talk of classes they

Family ties, old-fashioned service and respect


Mike Shalley grew
up in the grocery
business and carries
out what he learned
at Lawtey
Supermarket
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Times have changed, but
Mike Shalley does not think
the grocery business has to,
preferring to model *Lawtey
Supermarket after the ways
taught to him by his father,
who owned and operated
several stores with his wives.
In this day of big-box stores,
Shalley strives to give his store
an old-time feel. First and
foremost is respect toward
customers, something that was
instilled in him as a youth and
something he is working to
instill in his employees. That
means when a cashier gives a
customer his or her total, it is
followed by "please."
Customers are to be thanked
for visiting the store and
always addressed as "sir" or
"ma'am," regardless of their
age.
"I'm really old-fashioned in
a lot of ways," Shalley said.
"Perhaps that may hurt me in
some ways, but I've always
felt it worked so well back
then, why can't it work now?"
As one who grew up in the
grocery business, Shalley
remembers how business was
done, but because he did not
follow in his father's footsteps
at first, choosing to work in the
automotive industry for more
than 20 years, he found things
were a little different when he
returned. For example, he
laughed when he wondered
aloud how cuts of beef were to
be broken down at Lawtey
Supermarket, remembering
how his father employed the
use of chainfalls to hang sides
of beef when stockifig his own
store's meat market. He asked
where the beef was to be hung-
and where the cliainsaws were.
"It's a little bit different
(now)," Shalley said.
Shalley also remembers how
his father would work out
deals with alcohol and
cigarette vendors'. His father
would sit down with a
salesman arid anno.unf'e his-
intent to.'.-utr a .spcsial o6.
whatever item he was buying.
He would promise to buy a


. . .. .....



Mike Shalley, who owns Lawtey Supermarket, is no stranger to the grocery
business. He worked in his father's grocery store in Jacksonville as.a child.


certain amount of that item in
return for a certain price.
Regulations on advertising
and within the state have made
it to where Shalley now gets
the same price on beer, for
example, as any other store.
"There are no individual
dealings anymore," he said.
One thing, though, he can do
the same as his father is
personally interact with his
customers. They know him by
name. He knows them by
name. If they have a problem,
he can talk to them and offer a
solution he thinks is best as
opposed to a larger store that
follows corporate regulations.
"If they have an issue, then
they can come to me," Shalley
said. "I'm going to address it
on a human-to-human basis as
opposed to a human-to-policy
basis."
Shalley can also talk to his
customers about the products
his store sells. If someone asks
him if he has tried an item or
how a certain item tastes, he
can most likely answer
because his family's groceries
come ; from Lawtey
Supermarket.
"I've actually pulled quite a
few products out of this store
regardless of their ranking on
'the national' market' just

business with his two brothers,
Abe and George-they have
five stores among them, two of
which are more convenience-
type stores-Shalley has big
plans. He has set a goal of
establishing 100 stores.
"Will I hit that? That's
probably shooting a bit high,
especially considering I only
have 20 years of working life
left in me," Shalley said, "but
I'm going to get as close as I
can."
They are big ambitions from
one who "rebelled," in his
words, and went off in another
direction' while his brothers
remained in the grocery
business.

A family affair
It all began with his parents,
Mike and Louise, who was
also known as Fozie. Mike and
Fozie, who were both of
Syrian descent, got into the
grocery business in 1953.
Mike's Grocery was located on
Pearl and Dixie streets in
Jacksonville.
Shalley's mother died when


he was 4, but his father later'
married another woman of
Syrian descent, Sarah. She
gave birth to Shalley's two
brothers.
Though his parents were of
Syrian descent, Shalley said
his mother insisted he speak
English. She was proud to be
an American, he said, and
wanted her child to be an
American in every sense.
Shalley's stepmother,
though, spoke no English,
which is why Shalley 'is now
fluent in both English and
Arabic.
"I had to learn to speak
(Arabic) real quick to let her
know, 'I'm hungry,'" Shalley
said, laughing.
Shalley is not sure of how
his family got into the grocery
business to start with. His
parents had rather interesting
lives leading up to that. His
mother grew up in an
orphanage after her arrival to
Ellis Island from Syria. His
father was born in Detroit, but
moved toSyria when he was 3.
It so happened Shalley's


A Beka Book


grandfather was deported for
escorting immigrants across
the Mexican-U.S. border.
"They were very poor (in
Syria), very poor," Shalley
said. "I remember him telling
me how they'd work all day
for just a handful of wheat to
where they could make a meal
to feed the family."
Growing up in Syria,
Shalley's father learned how to

cobble and actually worked as
a shoemaker upon his return to
the States. Shalley - even
remembers how he and his
siblings wore shoes his father
made from tires.
"We had the neatest sandals
ever when we went to school,"
he said.

Adkins reviews
session
Dear Editor:
Since the end of the
legislative session in early
May, I have given more than a
dozen presentations on the
legislative session. Time and
again, I have been asked,
"How do you feel about the
budget?" It is important as we
look at the state budget, that it
is viewed in the context of our
economy, so I would like to
share with you some
information regarding our
economy.
This year only two states
expect revenue collections to
come in above budgeted
forecasts (Wyoming and North
Dakota), while 38 states expect
revenue shortfalls. This past
fiscal year alone, 42 states
(including Florida)' were
forced to reduce enacted
budgets by over $31 billion.
Compare this to 2002 and
2003, when 37 states were
forced to make mid-year
budget reductions totaling $14
billion and $12 billion
respectively.
Florida's growth is now
decelerating. Our state gross
domestic product now ranks
48* in the country, down from
2005 when it ranked second.
Florida's economy, and its tax
revenue structure, is built on
growth. Its reliance on these
growth industries is the reason
Florida has been hit so hard by
the downturn in real 6stat&t ,
In normal years there are
approximately 50,000 homes
for sale around the.state at any
one time. Today economists
indicate there is an additional
300,000 homes for sale. This
overhang, coupled' with the
decelerating- growth -in the
state, means it will take many,
many months before this
inventory can be cleared and
real economic growth begins.
Since January of 2008,
Florida's unemployment rate
has been consistently higher
than the national average.
Florida's unemployment in
May reached 10.2 percent,.the
highest level since 1975.' The
unemployment rate in
Bradford County rose to 7.6
percent in May; a dramatic
jump from the 4.2 percent rate
from one year ago. Our
national economy has lost over
seven million jobs since the


recession began in December
2007.
This year our state budget
totals $66.5 ' billion, roughly
the same amount as last year's
budget. Compared to our
budget high of $73.8 billion in
2006/07, this might seem low.
But compared to the 2000/01
budget of $45.4 billion, you
can see that there has been
quite a bit of growth over a
relatively short period of time.
Our state's reliance on growth
to fuel our economy has left us
with a narrow economic base
that must be widened as we
work to shape the new
economy.
An improving economy will
take hard work and a team
effort. Consumption will no
longer drive economic growth
and prosperity. This will be
achieved through productivity
gains and becoming more
competitive in attracting
business to the sunshine state.
We will need to create
regional comparative
advantages. Specialization and
a skilled workforce will allow
us to create productivity gains
and will make our community
attractive to new investment
and growth. We must rethink
our policies as we move
forward in this changing
economy.
Competing for second
homeowners, new small
businesses and tourism dollars
will be essential to ensure our
local economy remains vibrant
and prosperous. It is clear that
the economy is shifting gears
and local communities will
need to work closer together in
order to compete for the new
opportunities that lie ahead.
I believe that job creation
and job preservation are
critical to our long-term
economic recovery and
stability. We must look to
diversify our state's economy
and rely less on growth.
People will continue to seek
the sunshine state; however,
now it will be different reasons
that bring them to our shores.
As summer approaches, we
, . neeetne � ,our time and
e'ne fe's, ~ teltiengtihing our
famii',"supporting our local
merchants and begin sharing
ideas on how we can compete
and retain jobs. Each job is
important to the success of our
economy and I will continue to
work towards solutions that


will help us be a leader in
innovation and to compete in
the new economy.

Keystone
resident
grateful for
kindness
Dear Editor:
My husband is a Shriner and
was "walking the streets" at
the parade on the Fourth' of
July. Walking the streets is
collecting money for the
Shriners' Hospital. The people
of Keystone Heiglits are a very
valuable resource for oUr-
hospital, as they are very
generous.
While Jay was walking the
streets, he dropped $63 out of
his own pocket. A lady picked
it up and actually gave it back
to him, rather than pocket the
money herself.
I wanted to- thank the
anonymous person and let
people know that there really
are good and honest people left
in this world.
Thanks to the city of
Keystone Heights for. your
kindness and to the honest
lady.

These young heroes did not
die from drug overdoses or
applying drugs into their arms
and legs with syringes. They
died from bullets. What for?
For the cause of our freedoms


and safety.
So, when we start praising
and applauding idols, let's also
do the same for our heroes.
God bless America.
Mitchell Brown


Thank you,
Mr. Brown
Dear Editor:
I read Mr. Branford's letter
condemning Mitchell Brown
about the -letters-he- writes to
the paper.
Mitchell Brown is a good
Christian man. I agree with
Mitchell. God did not make
men to be with men as with a
woman. God made Adam and
Eve-he .did not make Adam
and Steve.

Dear Editor:
I realize that Michael
Jackson was very popular to
lot of people. With the type of
entertaining he gave out, some
people called him the king of
pop. Getting all the media
coverage one would think a
president of the United States
had been assassinated. I know
he was very special to some
people but also some very
important issues concerning us
need to be taken care of.
Sure, whedf someone passes,
it should be recognized. But so
does the things that affect
everyday lives. Look at the
soaring prices on almost every
thing that it takes to sustain
life. These are also very
important and need to be taken
care of. The media should get
all worked up over these
issues, too.
Think about all the young
people who have died for our
cause. If it had not been for
these people, Michael Jackson
might not have reached his
goals in life.
These brave young people
might have had goals also but'
their lives were snuffed out
before they could achieve
them.

A long history of helping: Haven Hospice marks 25th year


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
The June 21, 1984, Lake
. Region Monitor reported that a
new organization, The Hospice
of the Lakes, had just been
formed. The organization was
founded under the auspices of
the Santa Fe Health Services
and Alachua General Hospital
in Gainesville.
Patti Moore, director of
North Florida Hospices, led 28
lay nurse volunteers through
a 28-hour training program,
meeting several days in the.
Melrose Homemakers Club.
Similar programs had been set
up elsewhere in Florida since
'1979.
Local resident Betty Zowarka
was one of those 28 volunteers,
and as time went on she was
instrumental in getting the
organization up and running.
Then she became a key member
and even today remains one of
its most visible Lake Region
spokespersons.
The purpose of the new
organization was to provide
services and care for the
terminally ill and for their
caretakers.
The volunteers would
help families and the dying
by shopping, reading or just
by sitting with the patient to
provide companionship or let
other care providers step out
for a bit.
There was to be no charge
for hospice services, the 1984
article said, and patients had
to be recommended by their
doctor. In fact, patients had to
have been given only a short
time to live,perhaps six months,
by their medical providers:
In 1984, donations could be
made to the new organization
through the Keystone State
Bank. According to hospice


staff, the organization wold
be ready to receive patients by
August of that year.
By 2009, the hospice, now
called Haven, Hospice, was
serving the needs of dying
patients and their families
around north Florida. What
had been the Hospice of the
Lakes now has locations
in Gainesville, Deland,
Jacksonville, Lake City, St.
Augustine and Chiefland.
Since its inception, Haven
Hospice has served nearly
40,000 patients and their
families in 18 counties; and
now has more than 600 staff
members and 1,000 volunteers
who live and work in the
communities they serve. There
are now four Haven Hospice
care centers in North Florida
and six full-time physicians
who'make house calls.
Promotional materials
say the organization respects
cultural differences and works
with the patient's doctor to
provide care. Recently, Haven
Hospice was chosen as one of
two organizations for a trial
program to provide care in
rural areas.
The program receives funds
from Medicare, Medicaid,. or
the patient's private insurance.
However, there is no out-of-
pocket cost to the individual
and no one is turned away for
inability to pay for services.
Which means that Haven
Hospice also runs on
contributions.The late Keystone
Heights philanthropist Al
Watson and others donated
funds to the hospice facility in
Palatka. An area of the facility
is called Aggie's Garden. At the
end of their lives, both Watson
and his wife Agnes, were
comforted in their home by
Hospice volunteers, Likewise,

Compassion
is the key
word for

and volunteer
staff. As they
have from the
beginning,
v volunteers
still respond to
the physical,

social and
spiritual needs
of patients and
families.

COLLEGE
Continued from page 1B
Clark is taking the. class
again, but she is not the only
girl this time around. There is
one other in her class.
While Clark and her fellow
female student are mixing it up
with the. boys in one of the
"Got Game" classes, several
boys have a running joke aboul
the skirts they have been
making for themselves. Well,
they're not really skirts, but
students such as James like to
refer to the kilts they are
making in "Highland Games"
as their "man skirts."
"Highland Games" is a.new
class this year, taught by
Lindsey Sheffield. Sheffield's
mother, Linda, is the
coordinator of the College for
Kids program in Starke. Linda
Sheffield likes the fact the
class incorporates hands-on
activities as well as an
understanding of those
activities.
"She's talking about the
culture," Sheffield said of her
daughter. "A lot of times, kids
will go, 'Kilts? What are men
wearing skirts for?' ;Part of
'Highland Games' is to teach
the diversity. Sometimes it's
more important to understand
what is behind the culture
instead of just assuming
because it's different, it's
weird."
Could "Highland Games"
become the next popular class
in the College for Kids
program? Maybe. If so, it well
may be offered again like
recurring classes such as
"Ooey Gooey Science" and
"Make It Snappy." However,
student and parent input will
play an important role "in
determining that. Linda
Sheffield said student/parent
evaluations are weighed
heavily when determining the
next year's course offerings,


whether they consist of
existing classes or offer
something new . children
express an interest in.
"We really do read them,"
Sheffield said of the
evaluations. "We take
information from there to, see
what we can use to offer more
of a variety. We work real hard
to make the program better."


RI





C


Enrollment is down this year
for the program, with 49
students as opposed to more
than 60 last year. Sheffield
suspects the economy had an
effect on that and, in fact,
anticipated as much; Still,
members of the 'community
donated money so that Santa
Fe could make 18 scholarships
available-only'six fewer than

scholarships, but by
volunteering to teach classes.
Oleeta Hardenbrook, for
example, has been teaching
"Life on the Kitchen Trail" for
more than. five years. She
enjoys working with the
children and thinks the
program is a benefit to those
who attend.
"It's an. experience they
don't get _ anywhere,"
Hardenbrook said. "I think it's
a great program."
Hardenbrook's classes are
some of the most popular of
the program. Children get to
make vafidous goodies from
recipes lardenbrook selects
that are simple enough for
them to do, at home. What the
children really enjoy, are the
fruits of their labor. They
make. They eat it.
Minx, who takes the class,
was looking forward to making
peanut-butter balls. Upon
hearing that, James, who does
not take the class, whispered to
her: "Save me some."


James said he wishes he had
taken the cooking class.
Perhaps he'll get the chance to
do so, next year. He, Minx,
Campbell and Clark said they
would all like to take the
program again. They are not
the only ones.
"We have several new kids
who weren't sure about '(the
program) and..are taking only
half days," 'Sheffield 'said.
"They weren't sure. Next year,
they want to go full day."
The College for Kids
program will conclude friday,
July 24. A program for parents
in which-' 'students swill

learned and projects they've
made displayed will be
presented at 5 p.m. in the

SHALLEY
Continued from page 3B

Grocery, a full-service grocery
store, until the mid-1970s. He
opened a store on St.
Augustine Road ' in
Jacksonville that was more of
a convenience store, but it
never panned out. Before he
retired, Shalley's father made
Banner Foods on Stockton
Street his final purchase.
"My father passed away,"
Shalley said. "He was 67.
Nom couldn't run the grocery
business. She ended up selling
the business herself."
Shalley said he began
helping out in the grocery
business when he was 9. In his
teens, he delivered groceries to
elderly customers, pushing a
cart anywhere from five to 10
blocks and walking up flights
of stairs to help those who
could not get out and drive.
"They always loved the
'sweet, little boy, Mike,' and I
got my little $1 tip," Shalley
said. "Eventually, I ended up
getting my driver's license.
Then I could drive Dad's
station wagon to do the same
tasks, but they never did come
up with a device to make those
stairs any shorter."
There were a couple of
chores Shalley did not like
while working in the business,
such as sorting soda bottles
people returned for deposits
and bagging potatoes. The
worst thing that could happen,
he said, while breaking down
50-pound bags of potatoes into
5-pound bags was coming
across a rotten potato.
"That smell will never go
away," Shalley said. "It always
stays in my mind. I decided I
was going to do something
different."
Shalley had' uncles who
were involved in the grocery
business also, but one owned
and operated a full-service
Amoco station. That was how
Shalley's interest in the
automotive business evolved.
He went to college-and earned
an associate's degree in
applied science (automotive
technology). He ended up
owning his own business.
Repairing automobiles
turned out to be something
Shalley was very good at. He
earned Master Technician
status and said, "I can honestly
say I was one of the top 10
technicians this side of the
Mississippi. I specialized in
drivability and air-
conditioning."
Sij'c;, -ltill like, to 'moaiTy"""
and build hot rods, but as far as
working on cars for a living, it
was something he could not
continue to do.
"I don't regret (going into
the automotive business), but
the bottom line is it's a young
man's job," Shalley, said.
"Unfortunately, the way I was,
I couldn't just sit in an office
and have guys do things. I was
right in the middle of the job."
Neck surgery, bad knees and
a bad back helped Shalley,
after talks with his brothers,
decide to leave cars behind and
get back into the grocery
business.
Shalley laughs about how he
used to give his brother


George grief about how he did
not know what hard work was.
After all, wasn't Shalley
slaving away in the heat and
finding himself covered in
grease and grime as he worked
on automobiles while George
simply worked in a grocery
store?
Well, Shalley said he has
apologized to his brother every
day for more than two years.
The mental stress in the
grocery business is as
demanding as the physical
stress he endured fixing
automobiles.'
"I go home from here more
tired than I ever did from the
(automotive) shop," Shalley
said.
A year ago, Shalley had the
chance to go to home of a
different sort.

Family roots
Shalley and one of his
sons-he and wife, Jill, have
five children in all-took a trip
to Syria last year. It was not
the first time Shalley visited
the land of his ancestors, but
the first trip, taken when he
was 9, was not pleasant
because an automobile
accident that occurred while he
was there resulted in the deaths
of his grandparents.
This time, though, Shalley


enjoyed the trip, taking in such
sights with his son as the ruins
of the city of Palmyra and the
Crusader fortress Krak des
Chevaliers.
It was an enjoyable trip, but
one that began with some
anxiety. Shalley said he was
afraid of how he and his son
would be received as both
Americans and Christians. As
it turned out, there was no
need to worry. He and his son
were treated as friends. The
owners of a restaurant they ate
at did not charge them for
dinner when they found out
they were Americans. A
similar incident occurred at a
marketplace when Shalley
tried to buy items. The vendors
would not take a penny from
him once they found out he
was an American. In fact, they
invited him and his son to sit
with them and have coffee.

"To say it was a warm
welcome would be an
understatement" Shalley said.
"The folks were very pleased
to meet Americans. Believe it
or not, they loved George
Bush. Everybody I talked to
just loved George Bush."
S Besides the historic sights,
something else that made an
impact on Shalley was just
how poor people are jn Syria.

Mike Shalley bought Lawtey Supermarket in November 2006 and has been
remodeling the store since then. "I want to be the little Publix of Lawtey," he said.


Anything Americans would
think of as poor is 10 times
worse there, he said.

those poor .people during his
childhood. It is what really'

shaped how Shalley's father
did business-addressing
everyone as "sir" or "ma'am,"
saying "please" when giving
customers their totals and
thanking customers for visiting


as they leave the store. He was
grateful for what he had in life.
"He was. so poor," Shalley
