In Raiford, a new store is un-

a new store is underway at 4173
Southwest S.R. 121. A third store
opened on Main Street in Lake
Butler last year.
Each Dollar General will be
nearly 8,000 square feet and will
offer a new store design. Some of
the highlights include more con-
venient cash register locations,
seasonal products featured in the
center of the store, coolers near
the front of the store and more
visible department signage.

Dollar General Communica-

Machak said, "In the past year
or so, we've made changes to
our stores and our customers are
taking notice. They're coming

company uses many factors
when choosing a new store loca-

clude demographic trends, traffic
patterns and customer needs, to

name a few.
"Raiford and Wor.thington
Springs are a great match for us.
We believe we can deliver a con-

Brooker soldier continues studies at FGC while in Iraq

The barracks are dark, save for
the light from a laptop computer.
A few of his fellow soldiers have
complained about the light, but
U.S. Navy Seabee Jason Morin is
on a mission, one separate from
his mandated assignment in Iraq.
This is to complete his certifi-
cation as a wastewater treatment
plant operator.

Though he .is thousands of
miles away in Al Asad, Iraq,
Morin's access to Florida Gate-
way College is just a few mouse
clicks away. He has to hurry,
though-while he is technically
done for the day, soldiers never
know what the night has in store
for them.
He finishes an assignment,
pulls the plug on the computer
and lies down for a few hours,
preparing himself for the stress-
ful day ahead. Tomorrow night
he'll do the.same thing, and the
night after that.

That's just a glimpse into the
life of the Brooker native who re-
cently returned from his second
stint in Iraq and is on schedule
to be deployed to Afghanistan
next year. The active U.S. Navy
reservist, when stateside, works
for the Florida Department of

Corrections as a wastewater op-

Center's "water2go" program,
Morin took all of his classes on-
line, though he is a little further
away from most and must deal
with less ideal conditions.
"It's a little difficult," the 18-
year military veteran said. "There
just really isn't enough time to

do everything. And even when
you're off work, there's no tell-
ing what's going to happen in the
middle of the night. So basically
you're free until you're needed."
The long nights didn't seem
to affect his day job that much-
Morin was named the top E6
(non-commissioned officer) in
his regiment. He also was named
the second runner-up to "Sailor
of the Year" in the Navy's Sea-
bees Division nationwide.

And when he returned state-
side, after completing his course-
work, he was able to pass his
Class-C state licensure exam-
on the first try.
Morin has his eyes set on earn-
ing his associate's degree in en-
vironmental science from Florida
Gateway College, and when he's
deployed to Afghanistan next
year, he said he plans to continue
his online coursework there.
"This was really the first time

I'd been in any school environ-
ment since high school," Morin
said. "I thought it was a very
unique way of learning."

The Banner Center for Water
Resources offers credit and non-
credit classes in water and waste-
water management. There are
currently 33 students enrolled in
the program which focuses on a
booming industry sector, which
is bound to continue growing in
the coming years. Director Tim
Atkinson said that 30 to 50 per-
cent of the current workforce in
the industry is expected to retire
in the next five to 10 years.

New ARNP begins seeing patients in Union

Times Editor

Recently joining the staff at
the Union County Health De-
partment is Advanced Registered
Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) Char-
lanna Speights.
Originally from Marianna,
the 24-year-old attended Gulf
Coast Community College then
transferred to the University of
Florida where she received her
master's degree in nursing in
April of 2010.
Speights offers primary care,
pediatrics and female health ser-
vices to all Union County resi-

ma that the health department
is only for major illnesses," she
said. "Here, I treat people with
acne, high cholesterol, allergies.
give physicals...you name it."

Charlanna Speights

Speights said she realizes that
when it comes to making a trip

to see a health care professional,
patients need convenience in
scheduling, privacy, and most-
importantly, someone who will
actually take the time to listen to
Her experiences have taught
her that so many people feel like
they are rushed at a doctor's of-
fice or often feel like they aren't
really being listened to.

"I mean. they are at the doc-
tor's office for a reason, and 'I
feel it is important to show em-
path\ and compassion for what
they may be experiencing." said

Speights, \\ho is applying for
her doctorate in nursing, said her
passion is reaching out to teens
and decreasing the number of
teen pregnancies and sexual\
transmitted diseases.

It is unfortunate that so many
teens are engaging in pre-marital
sexual activity, and along with
that comes an increase in un-
planned pregnancies and STDs.

"I shave seen patients as young
as 12 years old and the last thing
they need is someone judging
them for their mistakes," she
Regardless of the patient's
ability to pay, all her patients are
treated the same.
"I've been there when I didn't
have health insurance and I am
glad I can be in a position to help
someone in the long run," said

You can call the Union County
Health Department to make an
appointment to see Speights or.

fessionals at 386-496-3211.

Healthy habits
can help you
prevent diabetes
Diabetes, a serious disease in
which blood glucose (blood sugar)
levels are above normal, is the sev-
enth largest cause of death in the
United States. Though there is no
core for the disease, people at high
risk of diabetes can delay and pos-
sibly prevent it by being active and
maintaining a healthy weight and
: Approximately 24 million peo-
pte in the U.S. are living with dia-
betes. Type 2 diabetes, also known
as ajult onset diabetes, is the most
common form of the disease, ac'-
counting for more than 90 to 95
percent of diabetics. It is estimated
that one in five Americans are at
high risk for developing Type 2
Who is at risk? Risk factors for
TyFpe,2 diabetes include older agel,
ob.esily, family.history, having:dia,'
betes while pregnant, a sedentary
lifestyle and race/ethnicity. Groups
ati higher risk for the disease are
African-Americans, Hispanics,
American Indians-Alaska Natives,
and some Asian-Americans 'and
Pacific Islanders.
SRecently, a Diabetes Prevention
Program study of 3,234 people at
high risk for diabetes, showed
that people can delay and possibly
prevent Type 2 diabetes by losing

a small amount of weight; about
five to seven percent of total body
weight, through healthier eating
habits and an increase in physical
A minimum of 30 minutes of
physical activity five days a week
is recommended by experts and
can easily become a part of your
day-to-day life. Walking briskly,
mowing the lawn, splitting and
stacking logs, cleaning the house,
dancing, swimming and bicycling
are just some examples.
I Healthy eating can become a
habit by following some simple
guidelines. For example, eat a va-
riety of fruits and vegetables ev-
ery day. The more colors on your
plate, the better. Include more lean
meats, fish, beans and peas in your
diet. Also, eat more fiber by eat-
ing whole grains in foods such as
oatmeal, brown rice, whole-wheat
bread, bagels'nd tortillas.
It is especially beneficial to
eat fewer foods high in saturated
or trans fats, such as fatty cuts of
meat, fried foods, cakes, candy and
cookies; and avoid drinks sweet-
ened \yith,.corn, syrup and sugar
such as sodas aid sweetened tea.
Use less salt in cooking and avoid
excess salt in canned and packaged
soups and processed meats.
Just because the food you eat is
healthy, doesn't mean that it won't
lead to weight gain. Manage your
portions by being aware of recom-
mended serving sizes and what they
look like on your plate. According
to the American Diabetes Associa-
tion, to have a well-balanced meal,
half of your plate should consist of

non-starchy vegetables; one-fourth
should consist of carbohydrates
like whole wheat, cereals, pasta or
beans; and a three-ounce portion
of meat or fish, which is roughly
the size of a deck of cards, should
make up the rest of your plate.
Being active and eating healthy
and nutritious foods are habits that
can go a long way to keeping you
fit and diabetes-free.
Interested in learning if'you're
at risk for diabetes? Many websites
offer online diabetes risk tests for
free. Visit the American Diabetes
Association's Web site at www.
diabetesorg and take the diabetes
risk test or call 1-800-DIABETES
(1-800-342-2383) to take the test
by phone. The Web site also pro-
vides a link to "My Health Advi-
sor," a more detailed program
that calculates your personal risk,
generates an action plan, and al-
lows you to e-mail your results to
your doctor to discuss at your next

Seeing your healthcare provider
on a regular basis is one of the best
v'ways to manage your health and
stop diabetes before it starts. Some
diabetes symptoms may not even
present themselves until later on
in life.
The American Diabetes Associ-
ation recommends being tested for
diabetes every three years after the
age of 45. In most cases, at least
eight hours of fasting is required
before taking a blood glucose test,
so be sure to discuss the test with
your healthcare provider prior to
your appointment.
Healthcare providers such as
Palms Medical Group make it easy
to get tested for diabetes. Palms

out North Florida. Simply call the

Chronic disease
patients benefit
from self-
In a unique partnership with the
U.S. Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), the state
health department and Elder Op-
tions (EO), are engaging in a pilot
program to assist physicians with
referring patients with chronic
conditions to evidence-based edu-
cation and wellness workshops in
their local communities.
Participating physicians can
refer patients to these workshops
to help them better manage their
chronic condition and improve
their health.
The CDC states that at least 80
percent of older Americans are liv-
ing with at least one chronic condi-
tion, and 50 percent of them have at
least two conditions. Chronic con-
ditions include diabetes, heart dis-
ease, lung disease, stroke, arthritis
and other long-term diseases.
As people age, their health dete-
riorates and the cost of their health
care increases. In many commu-
nities, access to quality health ser-
vices and the cost of those services
remains a major problem.
The CDC has identified a num-
ber of evidence-based, low-cost in-
terventions that have been proven
effective for reducing symptoms
and improving the quality of life
of people with chronic conditions.
Chronic disease self-management
programs are supported by the
CDC and designed by reputable
organizations such as Stanford
Several of these programs are
being offered at local senior cen-
ters, senior housing, faiih-based
organizations and other commu-

nity facilities.
Elder Options' outreach work-
ers are introducing the program
to community physicians and dis-
cussing the process for referring
patients who could benefit from the
Chronic Disease Self Management
Program (CDSMP) called "Living
Healthy and Walk With Ease."
Patients who receive a referral
from their physician can register
for evidence-base Living Healthy
and Walk With Ease programs that
include free weekly classes on nu-
trition, medication management,
physical activity and support in
managing their disease.
Research shows that these pro-
grams are safe and they work.
Participants are also eligible to
participate in other health and
wellness programs offered by El-
der Options.
Living Healthy is an evidence-
based, CDSMP developed by a
team of researchers at Stanford
The program may be particular-
ly beneficial for people who have
more than one health condition or
whose health problems have begun
to interfere with their valued life
There is strong evidence from
published clinical trials that par-
ticipation in CDSMP can im-
prove physical and psychosocial
outcomes and quality of life for
people with chronic conditions.
Participants gain benefits such as
decreased pain and health distress,
while building their confidence in
managing their own health, staying
active and engaged.
The CDSMP is a series of inter-
active workshops for people with
arthritis, diabetes, heart disease,
and other health problems. .
Workshops meet two hours once
a week for six weeks. They are led
by trained instructors who under-
stand or have health problems like
arthritis. Patients will learn tech-
niques to help reduce their pain
and limitations, move more easily,
and maintain their independence.
The workshop covers topics like
how to eat well and exercise safe-
ly. Patients will get the chance to
learn from other people about what
has helped them deal with their
health problems. People who take
the program say that they have
more energy and less pain, are less
tired and less depressed, get more-

I order to ensure thia tap water is salel to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of cenain contaminants in
water provided by public walker systems. lThe Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants
in hottled water, which must provide the same pmtection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of cotnltminanl does not necessarily indicate that tie water poses a health risk. Sore ipformatlon about contaminant
ind potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environnmntal Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Ilntline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people nmay be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
cmnlpronmistd persons such is irrouns with cancer undergoing rhenlotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
tranlsplants, people with IIIV/AIIS or other immune system disonlers. some elderly, and Inants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about lrlinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC

2010 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
Of City of Lake Butler.

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to infonr
you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you
with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to
continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to'
ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is two ground water wells from the Floridian Aquifer.
Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatments required are chlorination for disinfection
purposes and aeration for odor control.

In 2006, the Department of Environmental Protection perlbrmed a Source Water Assessment on our system.
The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the
vicinityy of our wells. There are four potential sources of contamination identified for Ihis system, two with a
low susceptibility level and two with a high susceptibility level. The assessment results are available on the
DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.uisswa.p.. This report
shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact the water plant
operator at (386) 496-4853. We encourage our valued customersito be informed about their water utility. If
you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held the second
Monday of each month, beginning at 5:15pm.

The City of Lake Butler Water Treatment personnel routinely monitor for contaminants in your drinking
water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this
report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 01, 2010 to December 31, 2010.
Data obtained before January 01, 2010 and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done. In
this table you will find many terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better
understand these terms we've.provided the following definitions:

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight ofanalyte to I million parts by
weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by
weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking
water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Action Level (AL) -The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other
requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking
water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial
Maximum residual disinjfctant level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below
which there is no known or expected risk to health. MIRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of
disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

Advanced armband sales 1 notable change for this year's fair

Regional News/Sports Editor
Last year, the Bradford
County Fair was billed as "A
Blast to the Past," but going
back in time helped the event
take a step into the future with
the creation of advanced-sale
rid6 armbands.
The 61s' annual Bradford
County Fair opens Friday
March 18, at 5 p.m., and runs
through Sunday, March 27,
closing at 11 p.m. The midway
will be open all 10 days, while
the exhibition and livestock
areas will be open Tuesday,
March 22, through Saturday,
March 26.
Visitors to this year's fair,
which is being billed as "Fun
in the Sun," probably won't
see much that is vastly
different from past fairs, but
the sale of armbands is a bit
different in that they will be
offered at early, discounted
prices for the first time.
Armbands, which allow for an
unlimited number of rides, will
sell for $15-$20 on the
midway, but may be purchased
in advance for $13 for
attendance on March 18-20
and March 24-27.
"That is a real savings for
people who are ride
enthusiasts," Fair Manager Jim
Crawford said.
Last year, all rides required
only one ticket, with advanced
tickets selling for $1. It was an
attempt to revert to ride-ticket
requirements of 10 years ago
as part of the fair's "A Blast to
the Past" promotion, but
tickets were ndt what the
public wanted.
"Everybody wanted

armbands," Crawford said.
There are also armband
specials on Monday, March
21, which is Buddy Night (buy
one $15 armband, get one
'free), and Tuesday and
Wednesday, March 22-23,
which are student nights (free
gate admission with $15
For those who want to use
tickets, they are still an option.
Advanced tickets may be
purchased for $1 each, or
purchased for $1.50 on the
midway. Rides will require
either one or two tickets.
Advanced tickets and '
armbands may be purchased at
the fair office (2300 N. Temple
Ave.), which is adjacent to the
Florida Highway Patrol
station, the North Florida
Regional Chamber of
Commerce, American Paper
Company, Images hair, salon,
Video Express, the city hall in
Lawtey and Unik's Fashion.
Another change this year is
to admission prices. A student
admission of $3 has been
created for children in grades
first through 12th. Younger
children will be admitted free,
while general admission is $5.
In the past, children 12 and
under were admitted free, with
everyone else paying $5.
"That still puts us
considerably under our
competing counties,"
Crawford said.
As usual, this year's fair
offers a variety of
entertainment, but there are a
few changes in regard to
performance times and awards
handed out during the Starke's
Got Talent show.
Crawford said the fair has

Maegan Soble (left) and Hayden Smith enjoy themselves at last year's Bradford

had as many as three musical
acts performing during a night,
with the first performance
scheduled at 6 p.m. However,
the audience tended to be
small during 6 p.m.
This year, the earliest music
performances are scheduled is
6:30 p.m. Also, four of the six
nights of musical
entertainment will feature just
one performer or group.
At last year's Starke's Got
Talent show, trophies were
awarded for first, second and
third place. This year, all

participants will receive some
kind of participation award.
Starke's Got Talent, which
is scheduled for 6 p.m. on
Tuesday, March 22, may be
divided into two sections, with
children performing first so
that they are not up too late.
Crawford said whether or not
the show is split up depends
upon the number of
participants, but, it is possible
going by last year's turnout.
"Last year, we had few more
than we thought (would
participate)," Crawford said.
Popular performers such 'as

Bradford County's own Daniel
Crews and tribute group the
Legends return this year.
Crews performs at 8 p.m. on
Friday, March 18, as part of
what has always been the
popular Gospel Night, with the
band Crossfire performing
prior to Crews at 6:30 p.m.
The Legends will take the
stage on Saturday, March 26,
at 7 p.m.
Besides musical acts, there
will also be wrestling and a
reptile show.
Please refer to the Bradford
County Fair ad on page 3B for

the complete entertainment
Another obvious change this
year is the fair schedule itself
as it pertains to the midway
and the exhibition and
livestock areas. Crawford said
the 10-day fair last year
satisfied those who wanted a
longer period in which to ride
rides, but the traditional five-
day period seemed to better
suit exhibitors inside the fair
buildings. That was the
impetus behind the change to a
full 10-day schedule for the
midway as opposed to five
days for the exhibit-and
"For a lot of organizations
that aren't selling anything, it's
a burden to stay longer,"
Crawford said. "This year,
we've tried to satisfy both
This year's fair coincides
with spring break in the
Bradford County, Clay County
and Union County public
school systems. There has
been a debate on whether it's
best to hold the fair during
spring break in Bradford and
Union counties, at least, with
the. reason being that many
families take vacations and
leave the area.

Crawford, though, thinks it
makes sense to hold it during
spring break, which he said is
a benefit for those Bradford
and Union 4-H and FFA
students showing animals.
"For the kids who have
animals, they like that," he
said. "They stay out here the
whole time."

Minor injuries in
Bradford crash
One person had minor
injuries following a March 8
traffic crash on S.R. 16 at C.R.
225 in Bradford County.
According to the report by
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper M.D. Childress,
Marcus Miller, 64, of Raiford
was driving a 1996 Ford
pickup east on C.R. 225,
approaching the intersection of
S.R. 16.
Christian Burns, 39, of
Starke was driving a 2006
Suzuki GSXR 1000
motorcycle on S.R. 16, also
approaching the intersection.

attempted to cross S.R. 16 in
front of the motorcycle. The
motorcycle struck the right side
of the pickup and Burns was
transported to Shands UF with
minor injuries.
Damage to the pickup was
estimated at $2,500. Damage
to the motorcycle was
estimated at $3,500.

Keystone's Christy Hewes finds her niche in shed business

Regional News/Sports Editor
Christy Hewes admitted
she's "girly" by nature, but she
has thrived in a business she
describes as being an odd fit
-for her at first glance, taking
over Handi-House in Starke
that was started by her father
32 years ago and expanding
into four other cities.
Hewes has owned the
Handi-House in business in
Starke for the past nine
years-a fact she would've
found shocking if she had
known it ahead of time.
, "I didn't want to sell sheds
when I grew up, I can tell you
that," she said.
Yet she gave it a go and
:found it was something she
was good at, despite the fact
it's a type of business that.,
wouldn't necessarily seem to
'be her type of thing.
S"It's a shed business,"
Hewes said. "It's a man's
business. It's dirty. It's
construction. I'm a little bit
more womanly, girly-
whatever you want to call it..I
like fingernails and that kind
of thing.
"Once I learned the
business, it just kind of felt

Lockerman, at Handi-House in Starke. Hewes owns
the business along with locations in Middleburg,
Ocala and Palatka. She will also soon open a location
in Jacksonville.

like my niche."
The business she described
as a "man's business" now
includes her mother, ,Dena

Lockerman, and sister, Jodi
Tibbetts. Lockerman manages
the Starke lot for Hewes, while
Tibbetts is currently training

with Hewes to be a part owner
of a new location in
Jacksonville that Hewes hopes
will open by mid-April.
"Good people are hard to
find," said Hewes, who has
also opened businesses in
Middleburg, Ocala and
Palatka. "I've found a few, and
I'm going to keep them.
There's nobody better to get in
business with than your
family, if you can make it
It seemed as if the family
connection to Handi-House
ended when Hewes' father,
John Curies, retired. He was
out of the Handi-House
business for eight years when
he was asked by a
representative of Handi-House
Manufacturing in Swainsboro,
Ga., if he knew of someone
who could take over the Starke
lot. Hewes said the Starke lot
was suffering a little at the
"My dad called me and said,
'Hey, what do you think about
getting in the portable-shed
business?' I thought at the time
he was nuts," Hewes said. "I
told myself I would do it for
six months, and at the end of
six months, if I didn't like it,

Counties urged to back 'buy local' program

or I couldn't do it, I would do
something different."
Six months became nine
years, but it was a bit of a
shaky start.
"The first day on the lot by
myself in Starke, I totally
ripped the floor out of a
portable building with my
pickup truck," Hewes said.
"It's come a long way."
It certainly wasn't easy.
Hewes, who was 19 with two
young children when she took
over the business, put in a lot
of hours to start with.
"When I -started the
business, I delivered

she said. "I would deliver
buildings from 7 in theq
morning until 9 when the
office opened. I'd run the:
office from 9 to 5, then I'd
deliver buildings from 5 to 8.".::
There were times where
Hewes was working more--
hours and making less money
than her employees. Giving up,
though, wasn't an option, and.
sticking it out has paid off in
the end.

Letters to the Editor

A letter from

Janet Adkins
Dear Editor:
The first week of the 113th
legislative session was a busy
one, filled with ceremony,
committee meetings and floor
debate. On Monday, the Repub-
lican Conference made up of all
House Republican members
elected Representative Will
Weatherford to serve as speaker
during 2013-2014 legislative
sessions. Speaker designate
Weatherford gave an inspiring
speech that set out his principles
and defined the promise of Flor-
ida. I was particularly moved by
his emphasis to "not look to the
next election, but to the .next
generation." Speaker designate
Weatherford is perhaps one of
the most honest and genuine
people I have met and he has a
great grasp of the policy details.
He will be a strong leader for
On Tuesday, the ceremonial
opening of session began at
10:30 a.m. The chamber' was-
filled with flowers on each
member's desk. It was a special
day for me because my family,
including my parents, was in
town to share in the occasion. It
was terrific to have Mary
Downey and Charlene Bratton
from the Federated Republican
Women Network visit us and
share the Florida Sunshine Cake
from Old South Yankee. Clay
County Commissioner Doug
;Conkey came by to talk about
transportation disadvantaged. I
ran into constituents from Baker
County on my way to House
Chambers and we had just
enough time for a picture in the
hallway. After the opening ses-
sion; I was off to a PreK-12 ap-
propriations committee meeting
while my family joined the First
Lady of Florida for tea at the
governor's mansion.
Tuesday afternoon I attended
the Tea Party Caucus at the Old
Capitol. I was pleasantly sur-
prised to-see about 200 citizens
from across the state engaging in
their state government. It re-
minded me of the adage '"yiu.

Governor Scott gave his State

thetic marijuana, known as K2

The committee passed the bill
with no amendments. Now we
have one remaining committee
reference before it can be heard
on the House floor. The Senate
companion bill will be heard
next Monday in 'its second
committee. This bill idea was
presented to me by Susan

prayer for the House reminding
us that we will all be held ac-
countable before God, before
spending the day at the Capitol
with his family. Each member is
allowed to invite pastors to
come and serve in this special
role. I am interested in having
more local pastors come and
pray at our State Capitol. If you
have someone who would like to
come, please 'contact my office.
The day was filled with several
meetings, beginning with Chair
Bill Proctor and education
committee staff, Deputy Secre-
tary of the Department of Health
Kim Berfield, representatives
from Gateway Community Sen-
ices in Jacksdnville, representa-
tives from the Florida School for

the Deaf and Blind in St.
Augustine, a member of the
Baker County Tea Party and
staff from the Department of
Education. The highlight of
Wednesday afternoon, though,
was to see Chip Townsend,
Vicki Beaudry and Tony Brauda

from Nassau County. After at-
tending a behavioral health re-
ception on the 22nd floor of the
Capitol and a Republican Con-
ference meeting, I was back at
my office to study the teacher
quality bill. 1 finally left the
Capitol around 10 p.m.
I expected Thursday to be es-
pecially challenging, starting
with the Education Committee
at 8 a.m. We debated House Bill
7019 dealing with teacher qual-
ity. One amendment was
adopted to specify that teachers
may be compensated for ad-
vanced degrees if the degree is
in that teacher's area of certifica-
tion. I was surprised that only
about a dozen people were pre-
sent to offer public testimony on
the bill. It was pretty evenly split
between those speaking in favor
and those opposed. After, four
hours of questions, debate and
public testimony, the bill was
reported favorably out of the
Thursday afternoon included
time on the House floor debating
HB 7005 dealing with unem-
ployment compensation. This
bill provides tax relief to busi-
nesses, adjusts unemployment
compensation benefits to better
reflect the reality of the' state's
changing economy, clarifies
workplace expectations and ad-
dresses inefficiencies in the ap-
peals process.
The bill allows the number of
available benefit weeks to re-
flect more accurately a claim-
ant's available job choices by
tying that number to the unem-
ployment rate. If the unemploy-
ment rate is nine percent or
higher, there is a' maximum of
20 benefit weeks. If the unem-
ployment rate is at or below five
percent, there are 12 weeks of
benefits. Each half percent in-
crement above five percent adds
an additional week of benefits.
Florida's unemployment rate
for January was 11.9 percent.
slightly down from 12 percent in
December. This is good news.

SThursday afternoon brought a
visit with Michelle Kling and
Andrew Curtain of the Nassau
County Tea Party. It is great to
be able to spend time with con-
stituents and hear their thoughts
and opinions.
The week wrapped up on Fri-
day with the Select Committee
on Government Reorganization.
We heard four presentations on
economic development efforts
within the state and a presenta-
tion regarding the realignment
recommendations of the De-
partment of Health. There were
seven recommendations, includ-
ing that the Legislature discon-
tinue allocation of the state's
general revenue to fund the
provision of primary care/adult
and primary care/child health
care services. The proposal
provides that continued
provision of primary health care
services, treatment, programs
and activities by a county health
department would be in
collaboration with the county
and local community public
health partners. Being assigned
to three education committees, I
committees, I have received
quite a few emails about educa-

teacher quality bill and educa-
tion funding. As your public
servant, I think it is'important to
listen to your thoughts and con-
cerns regarding policy and
budget issues.

topics will make plans to attend

61st Bradford fair actually goes back more than 90 years

Regional News/Sports Editor
The Bradford County Fair is
preparing to kick off what is
billed as its 61" year of exis-
tence, but its history actually
goes back much further than the
length of time the fair has been
chartered through the state.
No one is sure when the first
Bradford County Fair was, but
the earliest on record is 1913.
Thp July 26, 1979, centennial
isMSe of the Bradford County
Telegraph contained a story
about that fair, which was held
in lLake Butler when Bradford
and Union counties were one.
The fair, which was held in con-
nection with the Corn Club and
Canning Club contests, was re-
ferred to as "the greatest public
gathering ever held in Bradford
County, with exhibits far beyond
The Oct. 2, 1913, edition of

listed several categories at the
fair in which prizes would be
awarded, including best bale of

"At some point, you may
decide to throw in the towel,"
Hewes said, "but I don't think
there's anything else I could
do to be.able to have satisfied
customers, enjoy my family
and make a good living."
Hewes, a 1999 Keystone
Heights Jr.-Sr. High School
graduate, had childhood
thoughts of becoming a.teacher
or a doctor. However, she
admitted she also developed a
mentality of working for
herself while growing up with
her f their.
"h~y dad was always an
entrepreneur," she said. "He
always had multiple streams of
income from different areas."

The Handi-House business
is different--frmom-rw-hen, her'
fathfi" %;ed' 'it. He.es said
That's due to changes in
building-permit requirements,
the way people rely 'more on
financing and the simple
adaptation to a more .modern
world when it comes to
utilizing the Internet, etc.
That doesn't mean her
father's principles have been
forgotten. Hewes said she can
always hear her father saying
in 'the back of her mind,
"Watch your dimes or you'll
lose your dollars."

to age (10-13) and largest child
between ages 10 and 14.
It was reported that Sen. J.B.
"Doc" Crews of Lake Butler
was so impressed with the fair,
he circulated a petition to form a
fair association, "with the
agreement that 'the fair' is to be
held in Lake Butler every year,
since it is the most central and
accessible point in the county,
and' is surrounded by the very
best agricultural selection of the
The fair wouldn't last as a re-
sult of the split of Bradford
County, with Union County
forming as a result, and the on-
set of World War I, but it was
revived in downtown Starke
with the backing of the local
American Legion. "The Straw-
berry Festival," as it-was called,
was held where the Santa Fe
College Andrews Center parking
lot is today. The fair consisted of
"a few rides and gambling con-
cessions," according to the
Telegraph. Mary Lucille Torode
reigned as the Strawberry
A fair/festival was held the
following year, but plans for a
third were put on hold as "a con-
troversy arose in the business

"That's the principle I've
kind of gone by," she said.
Also, Hewes remembers her
father putting in a full day
while accomplishing three life
"I can remember my dad
getting up at 6 in the morning
and instilling, 'A full day is
doing something good for your
business, something good for
your family and something
good for your body.' You need
to exercise, you need to work
hard and you need to spend
time with your family.

"It keeps me going;" Hewes
Hewes may not have
dreamed 'of selling sheds when
she was a child, but -her
children have expressed their
desire to do so.
"Actualjy, if you ask my
children what they want to do
when they grow up, they will
tell you they're going to work
at Handi-House," Hewes said.
"My daughter is very bossy,
and my son is very laid-back.

sector concerning the large
amount of money being taken
out of town by the 'carnival'
attractions brought in for the
event." The American Legion
withdrew its sponsorship.
R.F. Demorest, who was the
event's general manager, pro-
posed organizing a nonprofit
corporation to assume control of
the fair, but a poll conducted by
the Telegraph indicated the pub-
lic opposed even having a fair.
There was no such event the
following four years.
In 1940, the local American
Legion applied for and received
a charter that gave it the author-
ity to sponsor a Bradford County
Fair Association, which was to
be composed of American Le-
gion members. That first asso-
ciation consisted of RJ. Turner
(president), S.A. Weldon (vice
president), AJ. Thomas (treas-
urer) and N.D. Wainwiight Jr.
Starke's Magnolia Hotel
served as fair headquarters in
1940, with the Telegraph report-
ing "arrangements and staging
of the event are under the direc-
tion of William C. Murray, a

Whether or not Hewes'
children follow in her footsteps
remains to be seen. In a bit of a
twist, though, Hewes' mother
has done so. Hewes said her
mother used to work at Gator
II. Farm Supply in Starke, but
the 12-hour days on her feet
got to be too much of a strain
on her.
"That's how she got into
(Handi-House)," Hewes said.
"I thought, 'What a great
opportunity to get her off her
feet and get her in the office.'
"It's interesting. We are
employee and employer from 9
to 5, and she still cooks me
dinner on Sundays. We make it
Hewes' mother may be the
only family member who
works at the Starke location,
but itseems.as if,many of the
customers are family as well.
It's an atmosphere Hewes
doesn't witness at her other
business locations.
"I'm not from Bradford
County, but I have to say the
people in Bradford County are
probably the most gratifying of
all my locations," Hewes said.
"They will bring us lunch.
They will bring us baked
goods. They will bring us
vegetables from their gardens.
"In other counties, I don't
see a lot of that."

World War veteran with many
years of experience in this line
of work."
The fair, which was to open
Dec. 2, 1940, was reported to
have a "mile-long midway."
Murray was quoted as saying:
"Several new European novelty
riding devices will be used here
that have never been seen before
in this part of the country. A
company of 500 people is em-
ployed on this gigantic midway.
"There will be high-class,
sensational free acts on the fair-
grounds each afternoon and
night, and special events will be
held each day."
Response to the fair was good.
"Members of the fair associa-
tion are still wondering if the
success with which they met is
really true," the Telegraph re-
.By 1960, American Legion
members felt the fair had out-
grown their ability to handle it.
The charter forming the fair
association was amended so that
the association could be made
up of members who were not
members of the American Le-
gion. A new association was
formed in 1961, though Turner,
Weldon, Thomas and Wain-
wright still served as members.
It was on Oct. 25, 1961, that
the fair opened at the site it still
occupies today. The fair associa-
tion voted to raise $25,000
through a bond issue, which was
matched by the state, to build
permanent exhibit buildings.
The 1960s provided quite a
number of interesting acts at the
fair, as was reported in the Tele-
graph. In 1963, the paper touted
"Speedy Babbs and his Globe of
Death," an attraction described
-as "one of the greatest thrill acts
in the country today." "Speedy"
was to perform as part of the
"big, free" attraction on the
fair's opening day. He appar-
ently rode inside a big, steel ball
"with comlilete loop-the-loops
and a spectacular finale of fire-
The 1967 fair promised a
couple of "world-famous" acts,
including "the Wirengards."
"The Wirengards perform ul-

tra-unique aerial gyrations over
90 feet in the air on a revolving
mast," the Telegraph reported.
Another attraction at that
year's fair was supposed to be
Mario Rojas, whom was de-
scribed in the Telegraph as a
"world-famous unicyclist" from
Mexico City, but Fun Zones
Inc.. the company that operated
the midway, later announced
Swede Johnson's International
Lions would replace Rojas.
"Previously scheduled Mario
Rojas, world-famous unicyclist,
has been cancelled in favor of a
more spectacular act of lions,"
the Telegraph story reported.
Once the fair got under way in
1967, a "major tragedy," as ce-
scribed in an April I Gainesville
Sun story, was averted when a
helicopter carrying fairgoers
crash landed "away from people
on the fairgrounds."

Ihis was not the first time the
Bradford County Fair appeared
in one of the state's daily news-
papers. The opening of the fair
in the 1960s and 1970s seemed
to be a regular story in the
Gainesville Sun, while Florida
Times-Union journalist Dennis
Borgman wrote of the record flat
of strawberries during the 1967
fair. The strawberries, entered
by Mrs. L.M. Norman of Heil-
bronn Springs, sold for $220
during the auction.
"Mrs. Norman said the berries
were grown in her husband's 25
acres of strawberries in Law-
tey," Borgman wrote.
