Census says



308.7 million



people in U.S


2010 county
census data to be
released sometime
next year

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

On Dec. 21, the U.S. Census
Bureau announced that on April
1.2010, the nation's population
was approximately 308.7 mil-
lion (308,745,538).

The 2010 state, county and


municipality census data and
demographics have yet to be re-
leased. Beginning in February
2011, the U.S. Census Bureau
will release the 2010 population
count and demographic data to
the states and municipalities on
a rolling basis so state govern-
ments can start the redistricting
process.
Each year, the American
Community Survey (ACS) pro-
duces population, demographic
and housing unit estimates,
however, it is the U.S. Census

Why does the census count


inmates as county residents?


The population
total for Union
County includes
approximately
4,720 inmates
In the Science, State, Justice,
Commerce and Related Agen-
cies Appropriations Act of 2006,
Congress directed the U.S. Cen-
sus Bureau to study counting in-
mates at the address of their per-
manent home of record, rather
than at their place of incarcera-
tion.
In the course of its study, the
Census Bureau considered a
range of options and data sources,
including administrative records
data from the Federal Bureau


of Prisons, and consulted cor-
rections officials at the federal,
state, and local level.
It was found that because of
several uncertainties and chal-
lenges, address information for
inmates would need to be col-
lected either through individual
procedures or through ;access to
administrative records. A com-
plete address that can be verified
is required if the residents of the
address are to be included in re-
districting data.
Interviewing every inmate
would rely on full participation,
coordination, and support with
thousands of correctional facili-
ties. Because interviewing every
inmate would require security
considerations and detailed co-


ordination involving the schedul-
ing of each inmate for an inter-
view, interviewing all inmates is
not feasible.
The study found that collecting
address information from admiin-
istrative records was incomplete,
inconsistent and not updated.
Often, a street number and
street name is missing, and only
the city and state are available.
In addition, there is no valida-
tion procedure used by the cor-
rectional systems to ensure that
the address on the administrative
record is correct.
For addresses that do not match
to an address on the Master Ad-
dcess File, census workers would
need to visit the addresses in or-
der to determine if they existed.


Therefore, relying on adminis-
trative records alone is not a vi-
able option because some prison-
crs' addresses either will not he
provided, or will be incomplete,
or will be in some way unusable
for census purposes.
Further, depending upon the
length of the incarceration, some
addresses could be out-dated by
several years. Checking the va-
lidity of residency would require
a new census program because
the Census Burcau would also be
required to interview the current
residents at that address.

On Dec. 28, the county-appoint-
ed conflict resolution board met
with members of the Worthington
Springs Town Council in a special
meeting to resolve issues with the
interlocal agreement between the
parties.
The county entered into an in-
terlocal agreement with the Town
of Worthington Springs in Octo-
ber of 2005. An addendum was
added in 2007 when the county,
using a $100,000 grant, invested
in the town's volunteer fire sta-
tion, adding bays, fire trucks, an
ambulance and 24/7 EMS staff at
no additional cost to the town.
The 2005 agreement stipulates
that the county provides a waste
collection site and pays all tipping
fees incurred for the town's waste.
A paragraph of the agreement also
stipulates that owners of vacant
rental units used for residential
purposes may apply for a refund
equal to 15 percent of the special
assessment levied on the property.
Such refund was to be applied for
by Oct. 15 each year with docu-
mentation showing the property
is a residence used for rental pur-
poses. The agreement was auto-
matically renewed every year on
Jan. 1 unless one of the parties
sent written notice to the other on
or before June 1. The agreement
was signed by then Worthington's
Springs Mayor James Cason and
then Union County Board Chair-
man Wayne Smith. On Dec. 7 of
this year, as the town's mayor,
John Rimes.sent a notice to the
county to terminate the interlocal
agreement.
Opening the special meet-
ing, which had approximately 80
Worthington Springs citizens in
attendance, Rimes said, "No one is


going to lose their EMS. Nobody's
gonna lose their waste manage-
ment pick-up. Everything's stay-
ing the same. Let me get that right
out in the open."
Rimes proceeded with a story
about the assassination of Presi-
dent Abraham Lincoln and the
$100,000 reward offered for the
capture of his assassin, John Wil-
kes Booth. The story implied that
Booth read an article that appeared
in the newspaper, but it didn't give
both sides of the story and in his
ire, Booth set out to assassinate
the U.S. president.
Indirectly, Rimes appeared, to
be trying to 'tell the citizens of
Worthington Springs that not ev-
erything you read in the paper is
true.
Rimes said, "When you have a
story and you got the whole story
even though part of its factual or
all of the first part is factual, well
you didn't get the last half of it and
everybody just fills in the blanks.
That's what everybody's doing
here and we would like to fill in
the blanks for you," Rimes said.
"Nothing is going anywhere,"
said Rimes. "That's wihat was put
in the paper and I think that's 'why
everybody's here. Everybody will
still have the same service."
Rimes added that he did not
want EMS, the fire truck or waste
collection site provided by the
county to leave.
"Unless they want to pull out, 1
don't want them to go," he said.
District 3 County Commis-
sioner Jimmy Tallman was des-
ignated as spokesperson for the
board to answer any questions and
represent the people in his district
which encompasses Worthington
Springs.
"I want to agree with the mayor.
It is our utmost desire that we keep

this interlocal agreement in place,"
said Tallman.
Tallman told the crowd that the
county has a legaland moral obli-
gation to Worthington Springs to
provide them with these services.
"We would like to extend the
agreement 90 days to work out the
conflict, but we \want to extract
paragraph E and have it stricken
from the interlocal agreement,"
Tallman said.
He was referring to the para-
graph providing Worthington
Springs with a 15-percent refund
of the special assessment levied
on each rental unit in the town.
Rimes stated that they would
like more time to make a deci-
sion on that issue, however Tall-
man pointed out that as of Jan. I,
which was only three days away,
the agreement was terminated
and the county had to pull out its
equipment and services provided
to the town.
"It's the 28'. We've got three
days. Are you willing to talk about
this now or is there something else
we can do?" Tallman asked.
Rimes stated that.what he want-
ed was for everyone to be pro-
tected.
"If today we start addressing...
picking particulars out...there are
a lot of particulars we can address


(from the interlocal agreement)."
Rimes suggested that the board
agree to go along with an exten-
sion, leaving everything the same
and hash out the particulars within
the next 90 days.
"Then, whatever decisions we
come up with before March 24
will be retroed back," Rimes said.
County attorney Russell Wade
said he advised against a March
extension. He explained that the
method of funding for the services
provided to the town by the coun-
ty were partially paid for through
a special tax assessment. Any spe-
cial tax assessment in the state of
Florida must be assessed on Jan. I
of each year to be valid.
"If we don't collect the spe-
cial assessment for the year, then
there's going to be funding prob-
lems for EMS and for garbage,"
Wade said.
Rimes said that nobody in the
town has a problem with paying
the special assessment, but Tall-
man pointed out that paragraph
E of the interlocal agreement that
provides the 15-percent refund
is the issue. "We want it stricken
from the agreement," said Tall-
man. "This is something that is
not provided for any other por-
tion of the county. It is provided
only to thle town of Worthington
Springs," he said.
T'allmari added that he wants
everybody to have a break during
hard economic times, however,
the county simply cannot afford to

do this for all its citizens, so will
not do it for the town of Worthing-
ton Springs only.
Commissioner Wayne Smith
said the 15-percent rebate issue
is all about Timber Village-a
mobile home rental community
owned by the Rimes family.
"It's (the rebate) for anybody in
the town of Worthington Springs,
not just Timber Village," Rimes
said. "This was done in 2004. We
had a conflict resolution then and
now we're dealing with it again,"
he said.
A citizen asked, "How has this
gotten down to this point? Why
has it taken so long to get this
taken care of? How long have you
,been working on this?':
Tallman answ'ered and said,
"The first I heard of it was Dec.
7 when we had this certified let-
ter presented. But a letter prior to
this was sent but I guess was mis-
placed or something."
Nodding to Rimes, Tallman
continued, "You said it's been
seven or eightmonths, but some
of the board members did not
know about this."
A citizen said, "What I'm get-
tiAg at is if you have a job and
you're getting paid to do ajob and
you're not getting the job done in a
timely manner. Let's not wait un-
til the last second so.we'renot all
sitting here having to go through
what were going through now."
Tallman agreed,, saying. he's
been on the board for two years

and is embarrassed by the fact that
he was only made aware of the
terms of the interlocal agreement
just two weeks ago.
A female citizen said, "But I'd
like to know exactly what it is be-
sides just this one thing. I don't
want to read it in the paper, I want
John (Rimes) to tell us exactly
what the conflict is."
Rimes began to answer by say-
ing he sent a letter to ihe county
eight months ago before. The citi-
zen cut him off and said, Well, we
didn't get the letter. That's what
I'm saying. Can you tell us what
the letter said..,what the conflict
is?"
"There is no conflict," said
Rimes.
A citizen blurted out, "Well,
something's wrong here."
Rimes then called out some of
the issues that needed to be ad-
dressed.
"The insurance on the fire
trucks...the town is still paying for
it even though the trucks are going
outside the town. The town hlas no
income per sc from that special as-
sessment fee of $70 for trash and
$50 for fire/rescue, but the town is
still paying the insurance."
He added that the town doesn't
have the revenue to continue pro-
viding the insurance and he would
like the county to maybe pick it
up or help since they have the rev-
enue to cover it. ,
'.""Same thing with the eleiric
bill," Rimes said. "I believe Pat


Harrell (town clerk) said we have
about $300 a month we pay on
average for electricity at the EMS
station."
Since the town has no revenue
to pay the electric at the building
or for insurance on the building,
he said the county should propor-
tion part of the special assessment
to cover such expenses.
County Finance Director Don-
na Jackson said that she ran some
numbers and wanted to try to clear
a few, things up.
"I'm personally not certain what
Mr. Rimes is referring to about this
great sum of revenue we generate
in Worthington Springs. We're
not generating any sum of revenue
anywhere off the services we're
providing," Jackson said.
Jackson pulled the special as-
sessment amount collected from
Worthington Springs from the
property appraiser's office.
It shows that the county col-
lects exactly $26,605 from the an-
nual $120 special assessment on
property' owners in Worthington
Springs.
She explained that those funds
are split two ways with $70 fund-
ing solid waste collection and the
other $50 funding EMS.
Broken down, the citizens of
Worthington Springs provide
$15,640 from the special assess-
ment to-fund solid waste collec-

Burn ban still in effect, recent rain not enough


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

An immediate state of local
emergency order banning all
outdoor burning and the use of
flares, explosives, sparklers or
other outdoor burning devices
has been issued to all of Union
County. The ban went into ef-
fect on Dec. 20.


According to Union County
Emergency Management Cen-
ter Director Doug York, there is
currently a severe threat of fire
in Union County.

"The drought index and
the windy conditions have in-
creased the threat of wildfires in
the county," York said. "We had
two recent close calls and we


do not want to risk the lives of east Florida, including Union
Union County residents or their County.

dex continues to remain at a trash or other debris throughout
significant threat level in North- Union County. Only monitored


outdoor barbecuing is allowed
during this ban.
No burn authorizations will be
provided during the time of this
ban. The order will be reviewed
every 14 days for a continuance
or a withdrawal of the ban. For

cilities and to process the address
information reported by the pris-
oners, would cost approximately
$250 million.
This would be a more than
1200-percent increase over the
cost of tabulating inmates in the
city and county in which they are
incarcerated as was done in the
2000 Census.
This cost does not include the
development and field-testing
of interviewing, verification, or
validation procedures. It is un-
clear how many weeks or months
would be required for large cor-
rectional facilities to arrange for
Census Bureau field workers to
schedule interviews conducted in
a safe and confidential environ-
'ment.
The manner of counting in-
mates in the city and county in
which they are incarcerated was
originally clarified by the first
Census Act, establishing the
"concept of usual place of abode"
which has been modernized to
"usual place of residence."
Enacted .for taking' the 1790
Census, the statute provided:
"That every person whose
usual place of abode shall be in
any family on the aforesaid first
Monday in August next, shall be
returned as of such family; and
the name of every person, who
shall be an inhabitant of any dis-
trict, but without a settled place
of residence, shall be inserted
in the column of the aforesaid
schedule, which is allotted for
the heads of families, in that di-
vision where he or she shall be
on the said first Monday in Au-
gust next, and every person occa-
sionally absent at the time of the
enumeration,as belonging to that
place in which he usually resides
in the United States."
In addition to legal and Consti-
tutional requirements, tabulating
prisoners at an address other than
the correctional facility has im-
plications for household charac-
teristics, such as household size.


of any motor vehicle may not
permit it to stand unattended
without first stopping the en-
gine, locking the ignition and
removing the key. A vehicle
may not be permitted to stand
unattended upon any perceptible
grade without stopping the en-
gine and effectively setting the
brake thereon and turning the
front \ heels to the curb or side
of the street.

A violation of this section is
a non-criminal traffic infraction,


The inclusion of incarcerated
people in households when they'
are not actually residing there
will give the false impression that
they may be contributing to fam-
ily economic resources when, in
fact, they are not.
In the end, it was found that
counting inmates at a "permanent

318.
This statute does not apply to
the operator of: an authorized
emergency vehicle while in the

"I have some numbers here for
solid waste, and I want to tell you
what we actually spend in tipping
fees for just that one collection site
in Worthington Springs for one
year is $26,755," said Jackson.
"There are other miscellaneous
expenses, such as there is almost
$20,000 we pay out in salary for
one employee there and that's not
including, FICA, Medicare, retire-
ment and other benefits."
Jackson pointed out that the
county has far exceeded its ex-
penses over the revenue actually
generated from the town. "That
site is not doing anything but cost-
ing the county money in the same
way it costs the county to oper-
ate every other collection site,"
Jackson said. "And no other mu-
nicipality is asking the county to
give.them money for the collec-
tion sites or for rescue services we
provide."
On top of the above expenses,
the county also provides two
emergency medical technicians at
the station 24 hours a day.
In-additionrthiw"eunty has i-t,
vested hundie3l'thousands of
dollars in equipment there to pro-
vide ambulatory services to the
county.
"Other than the county seat of
Lake Butler, you're the only place
in our county that's got its own
ambulance so when you pick up
the phone and call, you've got
an ambulance within a couple of

minutes," said Jackson.
The county provides hundreds
of thousands of dollars and what
we get in return is $11,045, if ev-
erybody pays their special assess-
ment which they don't," Jackson
said.
.Referring to the volunteer fire
department in Raiford, Worthing-
ton Springs Town Councilman Jim
Amwake asked, "Are you paying
for the insurance on their vehicles
and their building in Raiford?"
Jackson said the county insures
its fire vehicles, but doesn't own
the building they are in. The town
of Raiford owns the building and
pays the insurance on their prop-
erty.
Union County Clerk Regina
Parrish gave a history of how the
county came to provide 24-hour
EMS and a fire truck housed in
Worthington Springs, citing docu-
mented minutes from county com-
mission meetings.

Jimmy Cason and John Rimes as a
town councilmember came to the
county board and requested the
county take over the fire station.
"We had received a $100,000
grant for a new EMS/fire sta-
tion. The bay wis-,already here
in Worthington and it was agreed
that if the county put the new sta-
tion there, the town of Worthing-
ton Springs would, in turn, assume
all utility, insurance and phone
bills for the facility.
Since that agreement, the coun-
ty has taken over the phone bill.
"Some of the EMTs were mak-
ing long distance calls and that


able to navigate the state's online
food stamp enrollment system
will now be able to get personal
help, thanks to a pilot project
funded by-a half-million-dollar
grant received by the Department
of Elder Affairs.

became an issue, so a decision
was made by the director for the
county to pay the phone bills,"
Parrish said.
Putting the fulltime EMS staff
in Worthington along with the fire
truck and equipment was not the
county's original plan. Originally,
a new EMS station was slated for
the Providence area.
"But one of the deciding fac-
tors why we put the ambulance
here was because the town of
Worthington was going to pick
up those utilities," Parrish said.
"We carry insurance, but we do
not have liability insurance on
anything that is in the Worthing-
ton Springs facility because the
property is actually owned by the
town. They agreed to assume that
cost and the utilities."
A citizen asked, "And all that's
in writing?"
Parrish replied, "Yes sir."
"Then it's a done deal," the citi-
zen said.
Another asked. "Then \\h are
we here for a conflict?"
Commissioner Smith said.
"Well, its seems like during my
tenure as a county commissioner.
I think we have adopted three or
four interlocal agreements now.
E\ery time we turn around. thel
(the Worthington Springs l'own
Council) are wanting another
agreement and that's what it's all
about this time." Smith said.
Smith added that the count' was
happy with where they are at and
wants to provide the citizens with
a collection center, rescue and fire
department.
"But the Town of Worthington,


(SNAP), formerly known as the
food stamp program, requires
that most applicants for benefits
fill out their requests online. The
three-year pilot project will en-
able elders who are reluctant or


for some reason, wants to see if
they can make some money off
the county," he said.
The $120 special assessment
was put in place in 1988 and has
never increased in the past 22
years.
Smith said, "We move roughly
$200,000 a year from the general
fund to balance solid waste and
rescue and they're wanting money
for it to be there? The county's
just not going to do it."
A citizen asked. "When you go
out of town with the ambulance.
do other people have to pay those
taxes too?"
Parrish told him, "Yes," every-
body all over the county pays tlhe
same special assessment.
Town Council man Amwakc said
that statement \Nas not completely
true if the town of Worthington is
paying for the electricity) and other
things.
"But that was their agreement,"
Parrish said.
Every citizen in the county is
paying the same special assess-
ment."
"It's a counts facility, then ev-
er body should pay for it," said
Amn ake.
Commissioner Tallman said
that he's suren PI'nidtnce would d
\welcome the idea of paling the
electricity if it meant they could
ha\e an EMS and fire station in

The Union County Public

"The library is a beautiful ad-

Library Director Mary Brown.
"We are so excited that we'll fi-

District 3 is the largest district in
the county.
"I think this community de-
serves a fire/rescue station, but
if the townspeople don't want it
here, we can be evicted and you
can send us to Providence and we
can put a building up there," Tall-
man said.
A citizen shouted out,"We want
it! They saved my garage and they
'saved my father's life."
Another citizen asked if that spe-
cial assessment to property owners
on their rental property was really
what this was all about.
"Is it that Timber Village
doesn't want to pay for all their
rental buildings?" she asked.
The woman went on to say
that Timber Village has the most
rental units in the town and that
she knew they had been getting a
refund on their special assessment
taxes every year and it wasn't fair
to anyone else.
She said, "I was told the only
way we could be exempt from the
special assessment on our rental
properties was to have the meter
turned off for six months."
Rimes said, "That is correct.
The interlocal agreement doesn't
specify anybody. It says owners
of vacant property. Does anybody
realize here that 67 percent of the
town is rental property?"
Smith, wanting to move for-
ward, said that if the town coun-
cil will wave paragraph 5E of the
agreement, then they can proceed.
A female citizen spoke out and
said, "John, if you care for this
town and these people, and you
want to represent us, then you'll
do that because all it's benefiting
is you and nobody else."
Another citizen said, "Just why
do you think we are here?" to
which Rimes answered, "You're
here because you thought the fire
station was being pulled out."
The crowd broke out into dis-
cussion amongst themselves until
a woman stood up and directing


more and three-year estimates
annually for areas with a popu-
lation of 20,000 or more.
This year, the Census Buteau
released its first ever five-year
estimates for small areas. These
five-year estimates are based
on ACS data collected between
2005-2009.
This information includes
ACS estimates onl\ and not the
actual figures from the 2010
1I.S. Census.
The 2009 estimated popu-
lation for Union County was
14,584. In )Dcember of 2009.
the estimated inmate popula-
tion for Union County was
4,573, putting the actual citizen
population at approximately
10,011.
During the last U.S. Cen-
sus conducted in 2000, Union
County's estimated population
was 13,442 (including inmates).
Between April 1, 2000, and
July 1, 2009, ACS estimates
that Union County's population
increased 8.5 percent.
The estimated population
count shows persons age five
and under made up 5.8 percent,


her attention to Rimes, she said,
"Let me tell you. I called your
house when this paper came out.
Your daddy answered the phone.
I asked to speak to the Mayor. He
said, 'Is this about the article in
the paper, because I can handle
your questions.' I didn't call and
ask to talk to your daddy. I called
to talk to the mayor. So why are
the Rimeses running this town
when you haven't even come to
the townspeople to ask what we
think?"
Rimes answered and said,"Ya'll
are attacking me'now." Holding up
.his cellular phone for emphasis, he
continued, "No you didn't call my
house. The mayor runs the town
24-7. I'll have you know that."
The woman .then said that she
looked up his name and that the
home phone number was what she
got, not the cellular number.
"We don't want to get into name
calling here. I'm the one that asked
the county, 'Let's get together'
eight months ago. I finally got hold
of (attorney).Russ Wade about a
week before their county meeting
and I said I have not received any-
thing. Please, somebody, let's get
together," Rimes stated.
Commissioner Smith asked
him, "Who'd you notify?"
Rimes said, "I contacted Russ
(Wade) because nobody else
would call me back."
"I was never contacted eight
months ago," Wade said.
County board secretary Diane
Hannon added, "And I'm at the
county office and you never called
me."
Rimes said he wasn't talking
about eight months ago and that
Wade was contacted the week be-
fore the county commission meet-
ing.
"I said, 'Please Russ, as a favor
to the mayor, our agreement ex-
pires irregardless of what goes on.
Please, somebody from the county
call me back,'" stated Rimes.
"I check the machine on week-
ends and I check the machine ev-
eryday." Hannon said.
Wade stopped the argument
and simply said, "The town of
Worthington initiated the with-


persons 18 years old and un-
der made up 19.5 percent and
persons 65 years old and over
accounted for 9.7 percent. The
county's female population was
estimated at 35.6 percent.

By race, white persons made
up 74.4 percent of the popula-
tion, compared to 79.4 percent
for the state. Black persons in
Union County were estimated
at 23.0 percent, compared to
16.1 percent for the state. The
Asian population was estimat-
ed at 0.4 percent for the county
and Hispanic or Latino races
accounted for 4.3 percent.
The 2008 median house-
hold income was estimated at
$42,734, compared to $47,802
statewide.

Persons below poverty level
in 2008 were estimated to be at
23.6 percent, compared to 13.3
percent statewide. In 2009, there
were an estimated 4,069 hous-
ing units in the county, with a
74.6 percent home ownership
rate. The median value of own-
er-occupied housing from the


drawal process."
"Reason being, Russ, our ex-
penses are going up here. We don't
ave any county funds to help us
pay for the things that we thought
are going out from 'the county so
we need some help."
Rimes continued, "We don't
want a head-butting contest. This
is becoming a name-calling, he-
said, she-said and all we would
like to do is see how the town
can benefit everybody here, still
provide the services, maybe cut
some of the costs to Worthington
Springs and go on."
Wade said, "Well the process
was initiated by notice of with-
drawal that was sent by the Town'
of Worthington Springs that said
we do not want you to provide our
services any more."
Wade said the county's offer
was to simply continue charging
the same rates to those inside the
town of Worthington as to those in
the rest of the county.
"We can't force you to accept
our services. The notice of conflict
resolution is recorded on record
on.Dec. 8, which led to this meet-
ing. It cites grievances and a list of
'whereas' clauses, but then it goes
on with something about revenue
generated by the waste site, but
(the waste site) doesn't generate
revenue.
Wade further pointed out that
the conflict resolution mentions
the cost of the fire station includ-
ing insurance, phone and electri-
cal, however, the county is already
paying the phone bill.
"So the primary conflict is that
paragraph E that provides the re-
fund of the special assessment,"
said Wade.
Rimes said, the town doesn't
have money and is asking the
county to help them out with shar-
ing the costs.
"Let's look at the waste facility
here. The county has been using
the revenues out here and we don't
mind helping out, but the county is
running a business on town prop-
erty without paying rent," Rimes
said.


2000 U.S. Census was $71,700.
Statewide, the 2000 median
value was $105,500. In 2000,
there were 3,367 households in
Union County with an average
of 2.76 persons per household.
There were 1,934 persons ages
five or older with a disability
living in the county.

Also according to the 2000
Census data, the percentage of
Union County residents age 25
or older who were high school
graduates accounted for 72.5
percent of the county's popula-
tion, compared to 79.9 percent
for the state. Those ages 25 or
older with a bachelor's degree
or higher were 7.5 percent,
compared to 22.3 percent state-
wide. Mean travel time to work
in minutes by those age 16 and
older was 28.6 minutes.
Article I, Section 2 of the
U.S. Constitution calls for a
census of the nation's popula-
tion every 10 years to appor-
tion the House seats among the
states. The 2010 Census is the
23rd census in our nation's his-
tory.

Again, the county finance direc-
tor said the waste collection site is
not a business, but it is a service
to the citizens and the county is
not generating revenue from the
service.
"The county is using the town
property without paying for it,"
Rimes said. "Where else in the
county do they use somebody's
property without paying for it?"
he asked.
Rimes said the point was that
they were being charged the same
amount in the town limits for the
county to run a business on town
property.
"I don't mind working 'with
anybody," Rimes said. "We can
pfit a small lease on it or you guys
can cut us a break on the special
assessment. Let's' work together
on this."
Smith said, "The county is
not financially able to reimburse
Worthington Springs for anything
when we provide a service where
people can walk to get rid of their
garbage. If the people are not hap-
py where it's at, we will look at
moving it outside the city limits."
It was estimated that the cost for
the county to do so would be more
than $100,000.
"The special assessment was
levied on the people of the county
to close the old landfill and pay
for the solid waste services. The
Tri-County Landfill is owned by
three counties: Bradford, Union
and Baker...so we can look at
charging $80 a ton or whatever
the board agrees to for the peo-
ple of Worthington Springs to
dump their garbage," said Smith.
"They do the same thing for Mac-
clenny and Starke, and we can do
the same thing with Worthington
Springs."
Addressing the crowd of citi-
zens, Smith said he recommended
that they needed to emphasize to
the town council to strike para-
graph E from the interlocal agree-
ment and move on.
Adding a personal feeling as a
citizen of Providence, Smith said,

"Providence probably generates
as much taxes or more than the
town of Worthington." When the
county w'as originally awarded
the $100,000 grant for a new
fire/EMS building, it was planned
for Providence. however, former
Worthington Springs Mayor Ca-
son was successful in persuading
the commission to put the station
in Worthington.
"Isn't it strange," Smith said,
"that in my 18 years, there's been
four interlocal agreements float-
ing around with Worthington. It
changes all the time."
Smith was adamant when he
said, "This meeting today, it's
nonsense. Everything's been run-
ning smooth but they (the town
council) want more money. That's
all this amounts to."
A male citizen wanted to know
that if there w'as an agreement be-
tween the to\i;n and the county and
it was signed, notarized and bind-
ing, then what was the problem?
Parrish explained that at the time
of the last interlocal agreement
in 2004, it was drawn up by the
town's then-attorney Bill White-
ley and then county attorney Hal
Airth. There were different mem-
bers serving on the county board
as well. On Dec. 6, 2004, John
Rimes, as president of the town
council along with Mayor Cason,
sent yet another conflict resolution
citing specifically:
"The issues in dispute are the
unlawful assessment and attempt
to collect a special assessment
on property in the town limits of
Worthington without the agree-
ment bf the town and the failure
of the county to provide a fair and
reasonable payment of funds for
the fire/rescue services provided
by the town."
During that time, the county
did not have a fire/EMS station
in Worthington Springs. To solve
the matter quickly on such short
notice, the county agreed to pay
Worthington Springs $6,0000 a

year as well as provide fuel for the
fire trucks. That agreement was in
place until less than a year later
when Worthington requested a
new interlocal agreement requiring
the county to provide a 15-percent
refund of the special assessment to
owners of rental properties.
The counuly clerk stated that at
the time, a decision needed to be
made quickly and the attorneys
drew up the agreement. Now, live
years later, Worthington Springs
has again sent the county a con-
flict resolution.
Parrish explained, "What ap-
plied hack then doesn't apply
now. When the board received
the notice to terminate the interlo-
cal agreement from Worthingtonl
Springs, they decided it was time
to re-evaluate and address the
longstanding issues."
Wade said that section 7 of the
agreement provides that either
party can cancel the agreement
upon written notice by June 1.
Since Rimes said he sent such a
notice to the county, he is within
his legal right.
"'We didn't want to terminate.
The only thing expressed is that
you either tcrltinate or continue
it. What \we want to do is redeline
some of the costs." said Rimes.
A citizen asked 'the mayor, "If
the town is broke, then w hy don't
we just dissolve the municipal-
ity and just become part of Union
County?"
The question brought more dis-
cussion among the angry citizens
in attendance.
"When the to\ n voted to bring

to generate a \\hole lot more rev-
enue for the county. That \\as the
idea," said the citizen.
Rimes said. "It did and it does."

rescue in town is what everybody
there wants to do.
"And if we can't do, that, then
dissolve the town and we'll be-
come the county," the man said.
A female citizen spoke next and
said, "There were two fires next to
my house and if it wasn't for the
fire department, then those places
would of went up."
"I agree with you," Rimes said.
"Why do you think 1 pot that gaze-
bo out there for those fire depart-
ment guys to rest? Why do you
think that every time we get pizzas
out here for the SWAT kids that I
send some over to the fire depart-
ment? I appreciate them and don't
want them to leave," he said.
"Then tell me," a female citizen
asked," Why did you send a letter
of withdrawal then, John?"
"You either withdraw or con-
tinue. We don't wvanl to withdraw.
Those are tile only two choices,"
was the llayor's response.
County finance director Jack-
son said, "Hul the actual truth of
the matter is, seven days after the
request for tlie assessmlcnl refund
of the vacant property (in Timber
Village) \was denied, a termination
notice was sent to terminate this
agreement."
A female citizen wanted to know
why the town council did not hold
a meeting and ask the opinion
of the citizens of Worthington
Springs.
In an obvious show of hostility,
Worthington Springs Town Clqrk
Pat Harrell arose from her seat,
raised her voice and said, "We
meet the first Tuesday of every
month at 7:30 and nobody ever
shows up."
Another citizen wanted to know
how the citizens were ever noti-
fied of their meetings or what they
were going to discuss. Shouting
and arguing erupting between the
clerk and citizens before the meet-
ing was brought back to order.
Jackson said, "We have an
agreement that \\as signed in 2007
that states in part. 'Whereas the

town has a volunteer fire depart-
ment which provides fire suppres-
sion services both within and out-
side of the town limits,' so it was
known by all parties the station
was going to serve the town resi-
dents and county residents."
Through that agreement, the
county supplied the equipment,
the ambulance and 24-hour EMTs.
For their part, all the town was
asked was to pay a minimal ex-
pense of the building's utilities.
Worthington Springs Town At-
torney Layne Prebor Jr. said,"I be-
lieve these are"all very legitimate
concerns. With all due respect,
as the attorney for Worthington
Springs, what worked in the in-
terlocal agreement before isn't
working now and needs to change.
We are willing to negotiate and
that's why we are here today."
He continued by saying, "Unfor-
tunately, it's actually not a public
forum, it's for us to work together
and that's all we want to do."

Again Smith.asked Rimes, "Are
you going to agree to strike para-
graph E?"
"We'll agree to strike paragraph
E if you guys agree to come up
with a fee for the dump," Rimes
said.
Tallman said, "We can move
the dump as far as I'm concerned.
The townspeople are OK with the
dump there and the town coun-
cil is not willing to move it even
though that is an option."
Parrish wanted to clarify some-
thing to the board and to the citi-
zens in attendance.
She said the special assessment
refund had not been paid to Tim-
ber Village in two years. Last year,
she said, the information for the
refund was not received by Oct.
15, the date specifically required
by the agreement.
For the year 2010, the refund
was not paid to Timber Village
because the agreement also states
that certain information must ac-
company the refund request and it
was not received.
"I suggest we accept the agree-
ment as it is today, striking para-
graph E and extending it for one
year. If we don't, at this point and
time, it will mess up budgeting.


The property appraiser and tax
collector are involved in this issue
as well."
Parrish suggested the town form
a committee and have some of the
citizens sit on the committee, al-
lowing the town and county to
work out issues.
Wade said the pressure to do
something within the next three
days was being created by the law
requiring the special assessment
be imposed on Jan. 1.
"If it's not in place, it's gone
for the year. That is the funding
mechanism used throughout the
interlocal agreement. Your interlo-
cal agreement issues can be tnodi-
fled after that, but the special as-
sessment will close on that date,"
said Wade.
A male citizen said, "I can tell
you right now that $26,505, which
is what everyone in town pays
for the special assessment... you
can't get another ambulance and
a lire department to do everything
for that."
Parrish was adamant when she
said, "As accountant and auditor
for the county, I am not going to
sign a check unless I know that
check is legal. If you have two
attorneys and both your auditors
sign a letter saying it's legal to do
so, then 1 will do it. But I am pro-
tecting the taxpayers' money and I
am not going to sign a check that I
do not know is legal."
A citizen looked around the
room and asked if anyone there
was making any money off the
special assessment refund. Every-
one shook their heads "no."
"Mr. Rimes, are you going to
make any money off of it?" to
which Rimes replied, "I'm not
making any money."
"Then what's the problem here?
Sign it," the man said.
"I will help anybody cut their
taxes and cut their fees. I will help
anybody in this town that I have
jurisdictional power over. That's
why I have jurisdictional power
of lowering the village rate for
everybody in this town as low as
we can possibly get them legally,"
Rimes said.
"I looked for other w\ a s to make
some none\ and that's where we
pulled in nearly\ $3 million in four

As people who make policy,
the county and the town should he'
working very hard to say, 'where
can we cut fees?' Isn't that what
we are supposed to be doing?"
Rimes asked.
Smith, getting frustrated, said,
"Us arguing is not getting any-

"We'provided them the fire truckl-- i

To that statement, the crow'.i

Smith made a motion to hold anr
emergency meeting on Thursday:
to come to terms with the town on
the interlocal agreement and the'
motion carried.As they were about.
to adjourn, Rimes then spoke up..
and said, "You don't have to have'
a special meeting. That way we
don't have to bring everybody out.
in the cold again."

Parrish asked, "Then you agree
to leave it in place as is for a year,
striking paragraph E? You can still
come back and look at these other-
issues between then," she said. "
"So we will go until December -
of next year?" Rimes clarified.
"I think we should go right on
with it and not stop there," Smith.
said.
Sarcastically, Rimes said, "Oh,':
let's go for five years, 10 years,-
Wayne, because nothing in the'-
economy ever changes."
"OK, 10 years," Smith said. "I.
make a motion to renew for 10.
years..." as the crowd broke into
disruptive discussion.
"Leave it just the way it is for.
a year except taking out that one'
paragraph," Rimes said.

Again, the crowd broke out into
applause as the meeting was ad-
journed.

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY, UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION


Tornadoes lose big lead, but,


rally for tournament title


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
SLast year, the members of
the Bradford boys' basketball
team had to watch another
team hoist the championship
trophy of the Lake Area
McDonald's Christmas
Tournament in the center of
the Bradford High gym, so this
'year, the Tornadoes had a little
extra motivation to win their
own tournament.
First Coast did not make %it
easy. Danny Alston scored
nine of his team-high 20 points
during a brief spurt in the
fourth quarter to give the
Buccaneers a 61-67 lead.
Bradford responded by
outscoring First Coast 15-4 to
close out the game and win 76-
71 in the Dec. 23
championship game of the
tournament, which is hosted by
the Kiwanis Club of Starke.
"We wanted to win real bad
because Williston came out
and beat us last year,"
tournament MVP Ya'keem
"Griner said.
Griner and Darrin Blye each


scored four points down the
stretch to help the Tornadoes
(8-1 prior to Dec. 28) go
undefeated in three games
during the three-day
tournament.
Bradford head coach Traavis
Chandler said he was proud of
the effort against a team that's
in the state's largest
classification and advanced far
in the playoffs last year.
"They got a great win over a
6A regional finalist from last
season," Chandler said.
The postseason does not roll
around until February, but
Bradford and First Coast
squared off in a game that had
a playoff-type atmosphere.
Bradford led by as many as 15
points in the first half, but First
Coast, a Class 6A team that
advanced to the regional finals
last season, rallied to make it
just a five-point game at the
half.
First Coast took its first lead
since early in the first quarter
when David Cooper made two
free throws with 1:43
remaining in the third quarter.


but Bradford's Treyonte
Covington had four points
afterward to help send the
Tornadoes into the fourth
quarter up 57-54.
A dunk by (iriner off of a
long pass by Tramaine lHarris
following a steal by 'Chris
Walton put Bradford u11p 60 56
in the fIourth quarter. Alston
made two free throws,
followed by Ambrose
Mosley's basket after a
Bradford turnover, which tied
the game.
Griner made one free throw
after being fouled, but Alston
responded with a trey to put
the Buccaneers up 63-61.
Alson was later intentionally
fouled, giving him an
opportunity at the foul lint',
where he made one free throw.
He followed that up with a 3-
pointer to put his team ahead
by a score of 67-61.
"I was waiting to see if they
were going to give up or keep
fighting," Chandler said of his
players.
They kept fighting. Justin
McBride did miss two free
throws after the Alston 3-
pointer, while (iriner had a
shot blocked, but Bl e scored
on a drive to the basket to
make the score 67 63.

locker room up 35-24.
Fleming Island held a
double-digit lead the rest of the

Will short sales, Ii .ttP nth Eitor
11 Letters, to'the "' Editor


foreclosures

bring down

appraisals?
Will short sales and
foreclosures ultimately bring
down all property values in an
area? If so, would they also
bring down county revenue as
well?
An e-mail was sent to the
office of Clay County Property
Appraiser Roger Suggs, asking
him those questions. Suggs
was recently appointed
president-elect of the Florida
Association of Property
Appraisers and is familiar with
procedures statewide.
Tracy S. Drake, director of
Real Property Appraisals,
responded at Suggs' request
and, with his review, provided
tile following answer:
By Florjda Statute, all
property will'be assessed at its
market or just value on Jan. I
of each year, regardless of
whether or not it has been sold
during the previous year.
Market value is the primary
criterion of ad valorem tax
appraisals and market
conditions will have an impact
on the context of market value.
During "typical" market
conditions, short sales and
mortgage foreclosures are
generally disregarded, given
that they have a minimal
influence on the market value
of comparable properties,
Suggs' office said.
Foreclosures, whereas the
lender or bank is the grantee or
buyer, are not considered as
arm's-length' transactions
because they are not exposed
to the open market and are
considered a "taking." As
such, they are not considered
in the estimation of value.
However, short-sales and
RH)s, or foreclosures,
currently represent
appro\imatcl 40 to 50 percent
of all residential transactions,
and are in direct competition
w ith conventional transactions.
Therefore, all transactions
are rc\ic\\ed for applicability
in \aluation and sale ratio

Thanks for all
the help
Dear Editor,
Thank you Heilbron Springs
Volunteer Fire Department. As
this year draws to a close, we
would like to express our great
thanks to a group of people who
receive very little recognition
for their work: The Heilbron
Springs Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment, as well as all of EMS per-
sonnel in Bradford County.
Over the last few years, our
church has seen a growth in
numbers of people and activities
on our property. With that
growth comes an increased need
for EMS help. Heilbron Springs
VFD has been there every time
we have needed them regardless
of the hour, or the severity of the
situation. They have come and


been extremely knowledgeable
which attests to their leadership.
Terry McCarthy is a fantastic
mentor to these young men and
women. Brad Carter has proven
to be a very capable leader in
our community, if this depart-
ment is any example of the work
he has done.
One of our young people
would be dead right now if it
were not for the Heilbron
Springs VFD. From our staff,
thank you! Heilbron Springs
VFD and Terry McCarthy, thank
you for all of the time that you
give to train a new generation of
firefighters and medical person-
nel. Without Terry and the Heil-
bron Springs VFD, our commu-
nity would be in trouble!
Sincerely,
David Coxe

Witnesses at the Red Dog
Saloon had called police when
they saw the Jeep Cherokee
leave the bar's parking lot at a

unknown man in the bar had
said he wanted to, get some
"powder." Bittinger allegedly
told that man he knew where
to get some, but could not go
get it because he did not have
transportation.
Bittinger said the man gave
him some keys and told him to
take the Jeep Cherokee in the
parking lot. Bittinger said he
did so and later fled when
Albritton turned onmis'-light's
and siren.

shoots from behind the
arc for the Tornadoes.


TITLE
Continued from Page 1B

First Coast's Ladarius Ward
scored on a drive of his own,
but that was followed by
Griner driving the baseline for
a basket to make it a four-point
game. Covington scored
following a First Coast
turnover, which was followed
by a basket by the Buccaneers'
Cooper.
A floater by Blye along the
baseline pulled Bradford to
within 71-69. First Coast's
Deandre Jourdain had a chance
:.to put his team up by four, but
he missed a layup following a
Bradford turnover.
McBride made a free throw
to make it 71-70. He then had
a steal, which led to a score by
Griner, which put Bradford on
top with one minute left to
play.
Harris and Walton each
made two free throws in the
final 30 seconds to close out
what proved to be an
entertaining game.
"I thought we gave
everybody their money's
worth tonight," Chandler said.
Chandler expressed,, ._.. .
appreciation to the Kiwianit--
Club of Starke, for its support
of the basketball program and
working with him and the
school to bring the Christmas
tournament back after a six-
year absence.
"I thought it went great,"
Chandler said of the
tournament, which had Lake
Area McDonald's, Beck of
Starke and Starke Family
Medical/illage Doctors of
Keystone as major sponsors.
On the court, Blye finished
the game with 19 points and
was named to the all-
tournament team. He was
joined by teamniate Harris,
who scored 11 points and 10,
rebounds and six assists.
Griner grabbed a team-high
12 rebounds, while Chris
Walton and Covington,
finished with nine and eight'
points, respectively.
Alston and Mosley
represented First Coast on the
all-tournament team, which
was also composed of
Gainesville's Tim Norman.
Gainesville finished third in
the tournament after defeating
Bartram Trail 51-29.
Bradford got off to a fast
start against First Coast,
building a 22-10 lead in the
first quarter. Harris scored off
of a steal by Griner, which was
followed by consecutive
baskets by Griner and Blye. A
3-pointer by Griner put the
Tornadoes up 11-5.
The Tornadoes scored the
last nine points of the first
quarter. A 3-pointer by
Covington was followed by a
fastbreak basket by Griner to
make the score 18-10. A
basket by Blye was followed
by Brian Walton's score after a
turnover, sending the
Tornadoes into the second
quarter up by 12.
Bradford made only three
field goals in the second
quarter as the .Buccaneers
gradually played their way
back into the game.
Consecutive baskets by
SMosley pulled First Coast to
within 25-20 before Harris
made a trey for Bradford.
Alston made the second of
five 3-pointers to help First
Coast go into the half down by
only five.
Bradford is currently
participating in the Rock
Holiday Classic in Orlando


and will return to action in the
new year on Tuesday, Jan. 4,
in a road game against south

771Th following is a look back
at the high school teams and
individuals who won
championships at the district,
regional or state levels, earned
medals in state competition or

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
regional News/Sports Editor
Union County High School
boys' weightlifter Colt Bennet
was a state runner-up, while
the track and field program
produced four district
championships in 2010.
Bennett, who competed in
the 119-pound weight class,
actually finished with the same
total as state champ Joel
Ensminger of Panama City
Beach Arnold. Ensminger,
though, weighed 7 ounces less
than Bennett, which
determined the order of
placement.
The two lifters had 400-
pound totals. Bennett had a
bench press of 215 pounds and
a clean and jerk of 185 pounds.
Bennett advanced to the
state finals after compiling a
395 (210 bench press, 185
clean and jerk) total at a
qualifying meet. Bennett's
total was tops among state-
qualifying lifters in his class.
During the regular season,
Bennett set school records in
the bench press (220 pounds)
and clean and jerk (195).
