A Lake Butler man has been
arrested for drug trafficking fol-

released.

4 arrested in

drug bust near
Melrose
A BUSTED (Br4dford-Union-
Starke Taskforce on Eradicat-
ing Drugs) investigation yielded
information that a residence in
Speedville was the site of illegal
drug use and/or sales and that in-


formation led to four arrests on
March 16.
Deputies from the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office executed
a search warrant for the resi-
dence on the morning of March
16 and found cocaine and a va-
riety of pills in the possession of
the people inside.
According to reports by BCSO

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

Julius Junior Crusaw, 26,
charged with the July 2010 death
of a Union Correctional Institu-
tion employee, pled guilty in
court earlier this month.
Last year on July 9, Crusaw
was witnessed traveling at a
high rate of speed on C.R. 241
in Union County. Union County
Sheriff's Office Deputy Billy


Townsend responded
to the area and began
a pursuit of Crusaw.
The man did not heed
numerous warnings
to stop and continued
Ileeing into the inter-
section of C.R. 241 and
C'.R. 18.
Crusaw ran his ('hev-
rolet pickup through-
a stop sign at the in-
tersection and crashed


Crusaw


into the left side of
a Jeep SIJV, killing
Jodic Hurst Norris,
23, of Starke.
As the deputy ap-
proached the inter-
section, ('rusa\\ had
already left his truck
and began fleeing on
tool.
Traveling with
Norris was her 10-
month-old daughter


who was transported
to Shands Gaincsville
\ith serious injuries
and later released. A
passenger in the truck
with (rusaw received
minor injuries in the
crash.
K-9 I nits with Union
Correctional Institution
and the Reception and
Medical ('enter \were
dispatched to the scene.

Raiford man arrested for abusing 3 toddlers


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

On March 10,the Union Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office was contacted
by the Department of Children
and Family Services in reference
to a possible child abuse incident
in the Raiford area.
The DCF representative stated
that he had a report of a three-
year-old child who had a large
bruise covering his thigh area
and a cigarette burn to his hand.
.Inv. Jerry Feltncr responded
to the Raiford residence and
also observed the bruising on the


victim's thigh, along with what
appeared to be scrapes. Upon
further inspection of the child's
body, he allegedly observed sev-
eral other bruises on the bottom
of his chin, across the bridge of
his nose, on the right calf area
and bruises on the child's left
side in the form of a hand print.

The victim's father stated that
during a recent visit, he allegedly
noticed a large bruise in the mid-
dle of the child's hack and anoth-
er large bruise on the buttocks.
Other witnesses alleged that they
too had seen the bruises, and felt


the child seemed to have more
bruises than the average active
three-year-old.
An investigation into the abuse
revealed that the boyfriend of the
child's mother, Paul Michael
Martin, 32, of C.R. 231 in Lake
Butler, allegedly committed the
act of aggravated child abuse not
only against the three-year-old,
but also the child's two siblings,
ages two and four.

Martin's alleged abuse includ-
ed choking and burning the vic-
tims as well as hitting them with
a belt and his bare hands.


Sheriff's investigators imme-
diately placed the children wIth
a child protection team where
they were examined. A CPT re-
port confirmed that all three of
the children had been victims of
abuse.
Martin turned himself in
to UCSO authorities and was
charged with three felony counts
of aggravated child abuse.
"I cannot even comprehend
why anyone would even con-
template harming a small child,"
said Union County Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead. Martin remains in
the Union County J.ail'.


Reduced amount of Alachua County waste

may mean reduced income for landfill


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Board members at the New
River Solid Waste Association
were disappointed when they
learned Alachua County is mak-
ing moves that could greatly re-
duce the amount of waste going
to the Raiford landfill.
Proposed changes in how Ala-
chua County handles its waste
are the latest threat to the land-
fill's budget and means the board
could have to'make waste agree-
ments with other counties.
Landfill Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal told the associa-
tion board last week that Alachua
County has a goal of recycling 75
percent of its waste. That goal is


laid out for all counties in statute.
but is not mandated, at least not
yet. Nevertheless, the county is
spending $400.000 of its reserves
to design and permit facilities to
recycle a great amount of waste,
he said.
Alachua wants to modify its
transfer facility for materials re-
cover), sorting waste that can be
rec cled and organic materials.
A second facility would be de-
veloped to compost that organic
matter, and to collect the result-
ing gas to generate electricity.
'Their count\ attorney\ has told
them that processing all of the
count\v's \ aste through that facil-
ity in this manner would d give the
commission authority\ to institute
flow control--a mandate that all


waste collected in the count) be
brought to the transfer facility.
What is left following the sort-
ing process would still be taken
to the landfill, but it would be
substantially less tonnage, which
means less revenue for New
River.
The New River Solid Waste
Association members felt be-
traied b) the development. hav-
ing rcccntl\ lowered Alachua's
tipping fee to recover commercial
waste that \\as being diverted to
another landfill. The association
\\as told that Alachua countyy .
\\ which \\as also hurt cconomical-
1\ b) the \\aste diversion. would
pursue flow control to its transfer
station and prlesumed that control
would d be used to direct all of the


county's waste to New River, at
least for the duration of their in-
terlocal agreement.
Not only have Alachua County
solid waste staffers been work-
ing toward implementing this
recycling program, O'Neal said
they've been working on the
waste diversion for some time,
even as the\ were negotiating a
lo\\er disposal rate with the land-
fill.
He also pointed out that what
Alachua County plans to do \\ith
its organic \aste- speeding up
the decomposition of waste and
collecting the gas-is precisely
what the landfill accomplishes
through its hiorcactor project,

Man who escaped

in 1979 still at large


Your help
needed
FDLE and DOC need help
bringing a wanted man back
home-to prison. A reward
is being offered by FDLE, the
Florida Police Chiefs Associ-
ation and the Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections.
On Feb. 8, 1971, Frederick
Barrett was traveling on the
Florida Turnpike with Carl
Ardolino, Michael Owensby
and another passenger. Bar-
rett began to choke Ardolino,
who was driving the car, from
behind as Owensby steered
the car to the side of the road.
Once the car stopped, Ow-
ensby began hitting Ardolino
in the head with the handle of
a knife until he was uncon-
scious. Barrett and Owensby


then carried his body to a shal-
low ditch filled with water and
held his head underneath until
he died. Barrett was sentenced
to life in prison for first-de-
gree murder on Sept. 2, 1971-
Barrett, also known by the
alias Neil Richard Meitzer,
escaped from Union Correc-
tional Institution on Aug. 17,
1979, by climbing three pe-
rimeter fences. His birth date
is June 5, 1951. He is 5'7"and
weighs, approximately 149
pounds. He has black hair and
brown eyes. Barrett has a 4-6-
inch scar on his abdomen.
Authorities say he has been
spotted in Hawaii and may be
in Florida, California, Colo-
rado, Hawaii or Maryland. A
cash reward is being offered

Do you trust me?.... Really trust me?

How much do you trust your classmates? Members of the Lake Butler Middle School School Beta Club got
to find out with team building and trust building games they participated in during a recent event. Above,
during the game iWeb, Tyler Lewis had to trust his fellow classmates not to drop him as he was passed
through the holes of a manmade web. Waylon Griffis and Trey Spitze led him through as Brittany Gaylord,
Callie Worthington, Kierstin Jenkins and Cayla Davis caught Lewis on the other side. For more on the event,

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor

Lake Butler Middle School Ju-
nior BETA Club members have
learned that communication and
trust are essential to leadership
and team building.
During a recent afternoon of
fun games and activities, the
group found out firsthand' just
how important those elements
can be during a visit from four
University of Florida agricul-
ture education graduate students.
Viviana Giraud, Lauren Hrn-
cirik, Holly Reed Cain and Brit-
tany Adams led the BETA Club
in a variety of team building and
problem solving activities.
Some of the games included
iCeleb, iSlide and iWeb. During
the trust activity called iWeb, six
BETA students used teamwork
as they carefully passed a trust-
ing student through the holes of a


manmade web placed at shoulder
level between two trees.
In the iCeleb activity, student
had a famous celebrity's name
written on a sticker on their
backs. They then asked others a
series of "yes" or "no" questions
as they tried to determine \who
their famous celebrity was.

The club would like to thank
the University of Florida gradu-
Sate students for their investment
in developing future leaders.
Throughout the month of
March, the LBMS Junior BETA
Club is coordinating a food dri c

Teacher Idol has


LBMS choosing


teachers with


innovative ideas


BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Times Editor
During early release day on
March 9, Lake Butler Middle
School teachers had the oppor-
tunity to participate in a unique'
,form of professional develop-
ment.
Known as Teacher Idol,instead
of singing, the participant/contes-
tants showed off their talents by
sharing innovative lessons with
other LBMS staff. Teacher Idol
applications and lesson plans
were reviewed by Principal Jerry
Graybeal and five finalists were
chosen to participate. The five
. Teacher Idol contestants were
Charlene Walsh, Megan Martin,
Rob Ulmer, Lynda Cross and
Will Bowen.
During Teacher Idol, each
teacher's biography was read fol-
lowed by the lesson presentation.
Other faculty participated as au-
dience members and were given
a rubic to measure the qualities
of each contestant's lesson.
One requirement was that each


lesson be based upon the Explicit
Teaching Model, where the au-
dience was actively involved in
the instruction. Following the
presentations, the audience voted
for their favorite by using CPS
(Classroom Performance Sys-
tems) devices.
First year teacher Megan Mar-
tin was the winner of the school's
first Teacher Idol for her lesson
"I Think, I Listen, I Know." Her
winning lesson involves the use
of an iPad to generate student in-
terest and engagement.
Other Teacher Idol lessons
included Walsh's "Probable Pas-
sage," Ulmer's "Scale 'Model of
the Solar System," Cross' "Pablo
Picasso's Dor Maar" and Will
Bowen's "Cell City."

Teachers said they really en-
joyed the day and plans are be-
ing made for another round of
Teacher Idol in the future. For
her efforts, Martin was presented
with a $50 check from Assistant
Principal Carolyn Parrish.

Lewis said the landfill needs
to be on the lookout for garbage
from other areas.
"Nobody here wants to go and
tell everybody we're fixing to go
up on our tipping fees," he said.

Alachua County representa-
tives who usually attend meetings
at the landfill were not present to
respond to the association's con-
cerns. The association plans to
take its case directly to Alachua
County commissioners since sol-
id waste staffers there have been
less than forthcoming;with the
landfill about the recycling plan.
In the meantime, O'Neal said
he was meeting with representa-
tives from Clay County, which
could result in additional waste
and tipping fees for the landfill.

The study also found that a per-

ing is eight times more likely t4
get into a car crash.

Zachary Rivera, Junior Civitan

While there are many internal
sources of driver distraction,
causing 17 percent of all crash-
es, cell phone use remains the
cause of I percent of distract-
ed driver crashes, according to
the-Natkmal Safety Council.
The U.S. Department of
Transportation reports, broad
bans on testing behind the-
wheel have already been enact-
ed in 30 states and the District


of Columbia; 11 of those laws
were passed last year. Eight
other states have bans that ap-
ply only to novice drivers.
Regulators said texting is
particularly dangerous because
it distracts drivers in three
ways: visually, manually and
cognitively. "Even talking on a
hands free cell phone is a cog-
nitive distraction," reports U.S.
Transportation Secretary Ray
LaHood.
Progress has been made with
more than 550 U.S. compa-
nies-employing 1.5 million

FGC to
offer first 3
bachelor's
degree
programs
next fall
The Florida Gateway College
Board of Trustees recently ap-
proved a proposal to begin offer-
ing three baccalaureate programs
in the near future.
The proposal will now move
forward to the state level, where
school officials hope it will be
approved and FGC can begin
offering its baccalaureate-level
programs in fall of 2012.
The three programs the school
is seeking approval for are bach-
elor of science in nursing, bach-
elor of science in early childhood
education and bachelor of sci-
ence in industrial logistics.
Florida Gateway College has
worked for more than two years
in its process to offer baccalaure-
ate programs.
FGC President Chuck Hall
said that 2011 has been an ex-
citing year of firsts for Florida
Gateway College.
"This is an exciting step and
the first of many in transforming
Florida Gateway College for our
students and communities," Hall
said.

Stop, lock
and remove
the key. It's
the law!
Stop the engine and remove
the key. It's not just common
sense, it's the law.
Florida Highway Patrol Lt.
Patrick Riordan, public affairs
officer for Troop B, advised that
although many vehicle operators
may he tempted to leave their ve-
hiele running during cold weath-
er or while making a quick stop
into a business, that is a clear
violation of the law.
Florida State Statue 316.1975
reads:
A person driving or in charge
of any motor vehicle may not


permit it to stand unattended
without first stopping the engine,
locking the ignition and remov-
ing the key. A vehicle may not
be permitted to stand unattended
upon any perceptible.grade,with-
out stopping the engine and ef-
fectively setting the brake there-
on and turning the front wheels
to the curb or side of the street.
A violation of this section is
a non-criminal traffic infrac-
tion, punishable as a n'on-moving
violation as provided in chapter
318.
This statute does not apply to
the operator of: an authorized
emergency vehicle while in the
performance of official duties
where the vehicle is equipped
with an activated antitheft device
prohibiting the vehicle from be-
ing driven; a licensed delivery
truck or other delivery vehicle
while making deliveries; or a
solid waste or recovered materi-
als collection, vehicle while col-
lecting such items.
Riordan further stated that the
fine for this violation is approxi-
mately $100, depending on the
county in which it occurs.


Books are not absolutely
dead things, but do
contain a certain potency
of life in them, to be as
active as the soul whose
progeny they are; they
preserve, as in a vial,
the purest efficacy and
extraction of the living
intellect that bred them.
John Milton
1608-1674, British Poet


In a world that is
constantly changing,
there is no one subject
or set of subjects that
will serve you for the
foreseeable future, let
alone for the rest of your
life. The most important
skill to acquire now is
learning how to learn.

Bradford County Public
Library on March 22 to
officially announce the Taber

library's genealogy room.
Taber, prior to her death on
Jan. 12, donated a collection of
1-200 books to the Col. Samuel
Elbert Chapter of which she
was a member and past regent.
The Daughters of the
American Revolution, in turn,
donated the books to the
Bradford County Public
Library, where they will be
permanently housed as

"We're honored and thrilled
to be able to house this
collection and make it
available," Bradford County
Public Library Director Robert
Perrone said.
SThe addition of the .books
Approximately doubled the size
S of the library's genealogy
section, Perrone said. The
books were catalogued
approximately three weeks
ago, but have already attracted
a number of library patrons.
Perrone said library staff
members have told him they
have to reshelve the books and
organize the area several times
a day.
"It is being used," Perrone


28, 2010, which marked the
25" anniversary of the Col.
Samuel Elbert Chapter of the
Daughters of the American

new shelving has finally
allowed the books to be
displayed and available for'

"This will serve as a
memorial to the (Taber)
family, to the DAR and to your
thoughtfulness to history-
keeping that history alive and
making genealogical resources
like this available to the people
in this county," Perrone said.

Editorial/Opinion

Second thoughts on budget


According to the news
media, many people who voted
for candidates advocating
reduction in governmental
expenditures are now having
second thoughts about their
voting. Legislative officials at
every level, from the
schoolhouse to the White
House, are whacking budgets,
iuch to the consternation of
people who are affected by the
cuts.
Parents of school children
ate especially ticked off by
budgetary reductions,
reminding me of the old
saying, "Teacher, teacher,
don't whip me; whip that boy
behind that tree." Another old
story with a similar meaning
goes like this: A mother
carried her son to school and
told the teacher, "Little Johnny
is a sensitive child, and if he
misbehaves, don't spank him,
spank the child behind him,
and he will be scared into
behaving."
Parents (and non-parents)
should be concerned about the
school system, not just in
Florida, but in America as a
whole. Americans have been
told many times over the
school system is failing our
children, and we have
responded by throwing more
money into the system. In fact,
the amount of money invested
in schools has increased 212
percent in real dollars (1960-
1995), adjusted for inflation.
In addition to increasing
funding, students per teacher
have been reduced from 26 to
17 in the past 16 years.
Another disturbing bit of
infoiknation regarding schools
is the ratio of teachers to other
school employees. In 1994,
fewer than 50 percent. of
school employees were
teacher. Admittedly, the
school system currently,
maintains a large number of
bus drivers and maintenance
personnel, but schools have
added non-teaching positions
that call for review in light of
restricted budgets.
T. Shep Thomas, dean of
Florida school superintendents
with approximately 40 years'
tenure in Union County,
reportedly had a single clerk in
his office, and his filing system
consisted of a- series of
clipboards hanging on nails
around the one-room office."
Speaking of tough times in
the big depression of ,the


1930s, there was a brief period
when teachers were paid in
script. Times may be bad, but
they have been worse.
Former Secretary of
Education William J. Bennett
has provided some devastating
information concerning
American students in a time
where we're spending record
amounts of money on
education, including a 45-
percent increase in teacher
salaries (1960-1995). It isn't
that we are paying teachers too
much-it points out that
throwing money at a problem
isn't always the correct
answer.
High school graduates aren't
prepared for college; 30
percent of freshmen enroll in
remedial courses, and 80
percent of all colleges are
offering remedial courses to
accommodate the lack of'
preparation. Forty percent of
all 17-year-olds do not have
adequate math skills, and 60
percent are lacking in reading
skills necessary to hold a
production job in industry.
Discipline problems are
increasing, with 57 percent of
schools reporting poor student
conduct, and two thirds of
students reporting less than an
hour per night in homework.
Florida requires six times
the number of employees per
dollar to administer federal
funds as it does state dollars.
In Florida, 297 state
employees are required to
administer $1 billion in federal
funds, while 374 employees
oversee $7 billion in state
funds.
(I found the answer to this
perplexing question: The
federal government requires
reams of documentation for
every dollar spent as opposed
to state funds that are required
to comply with the needs of
state auditors,-. It- takes
addition" personnel to meet
federal standards.)
The federal government has
spent $118 billion on its Title I
program, with the evaluation
that "the program has been
unable to lift the academic
level of poor students."
The following information is
provided for Bradford and
Union counties:

325/667; Union 283/667.

Change from prior year:
Bradford minus-13; Union
minus-22.
I graduated from Union
County High School. In my
senior year, there were not
enough classrooms, so our
Lit/English class was held out
of doors under a large oak tree.
Richard. Warren, brother to
Gov. Fuller Warren, was the
instructor. I'm of the opinion
that our class learned as much
under the tree as other classes
with air-conditioned rooms. I
am not advocating that bright,
air-conditioned rooms for
students should be abandoned,
but some of today's frills do
not necessarily lend
themselves to better learning.
Elected officials are in a
quandary. Voters obviously
want balanced budgets and
expenditures curtailed, but
they don't want a reduction in
services. The next election is
going to be quite interesting
when voters have to decide
between continued austerity
and balanced budgets, orn
unsustainable spending
reminiscent of past
administrations. The liberal
voters in our society don't
realize how near our nation
came to becoming a "Banana
Republic." If we return to the
reckless spending of former
years, and insist on borrowing
our way out of debt, we'll
deserve what we receive.
Much of the information
contained herein came from
William J. Bennett, former
secretary of education under
President Ronald Reagan.
Bennett is founder of and
senior adviser for "Americans
for Victory over Terrorism,"
and has hosted the "Morning
in America" show. He has a
bachelor's degree (Williams
College), a Ph.D in philosophy
(University of Texas) and law
degree (Harvard University).

I Letters to the Editor


Cake fundraiser
is a success
Dear Editor:
The staff and residents at
Windsor Manor would like to
thank all who donated and those
who bought the wonderful cakes
for our fundraiser. Our goal was
met with all of your help. I per-
sonally want to thank each and
every one of you. A special
thank you to Lila and Tony Sel-
lars who always come through.

People are still
basically good
Dear Editor:
With all the terrible things re-
ported on various news pro-
grams and in various newspa-
pers across our great nation, one
has to be discouraged at the di-
rection our country seems to be
heading. It is, however, refresh-
ing to know that, even though it
is not reported as often, we still
have good, honest, hardworking
people that are trying to do the
right thing. I believe our young
people need to hear and read
about people doing the "right"
thing more often.
In a time when we have peo-
ple who spend their waking
hours developing plans on how
to defraud, scam, deceive and in
some cases, bring physical harm
to their fellow citizens, we still
have instances of caring and
compassion demonstrated. It's
truly sad that these instances do
not get the exposure that their
counterparts do.
I have lived and worked in
Bradford County for about 37
years and have always believed
in the good in people. Being
taught at an early age that peo-
ple are basically good, and if
they are exposed to proper be-
havior and character as they are
developing, there is a good
chance that they too will exhibit
proper behavior and character.
That being said. I would like to
refer back to the first paragraph
where the word "refreshing"
was used. When I tell. m.story
about something that recently.
happened to me, most of you
will probably think that what


happened was insignificant, but
what happened reassured me
that even though I read and hear
of horrible things going on
around us, there are still some
wonderful things happening at
the same time.
My simple story: A few
weeks ago my checkbook was
lost, not stolen, but lost. No ill
intentions initially, but poten-
tially disastrous. It wasn't disas-
trous because of a large amount
of money that was associated
with my account, but because
the funds that were in that ac-
count were needed to support
my family and without them, I
would find myself in a very
binding position. Since this hap-
pened over the weekend, I
waited until Monday to report
the lost checks to my bank. I
Sent to the bank and spoke with
Jack Baker. After listening to
my dilemma, Mr. Baker sug-
gested that he put some kind of
caution on the checks that I
thought were lost and if one of
these checks came through to be
processed, it would be checked
closely for proper signature.
This method would save me
from having to stop payment on
the range of checks I thought
were missing, saving me a fee.
A short time later, I was told
that someone who works with
our city's recreation department
found my checkbook in the
middle of the road and had it at
the recreation department at city
hall. I immediately went to city
hall to claim my checkbook.
Mary Johnson, an employee,
had my checkbook, and I of-


fered a finder's fee, but she re-
fused (it was like I may have
offended her by offering).
Maiy and Jack probably don't
realize it, but their actions have
caused me to write this letter,
something that I never would
have done otherwise. I know a
lot of you who are reading this
will say to yourself, "really, Jim,
was it that big of a deal,.a lost
checkbook?" Like the starfish
that was thrown back into the
ocean by the little girl, it was for
me.
Thank you Mary and Jack for
reaffirming for me that people
are still basically good.,
Jim Lewis
Bradford County

Letter from
Janet Adkins
Dear Editor:
The second week of Legisla-
tive Session was filled with lots
of work and the pace started to
pick up. Issues related to budget
policies and language on key
legislative bills can change by
the minute and require frequent
trips to meet with fellow law-
makers and committee staff be-
fore you can "lock down" an
agreement.
Sometimes developing issues
are surfaced by staff or fellow
members; but most often by
citizens who are tracking issues
and send me an e-mail. I try to
read all the e-mails and while I
do not have time to respond to

LB farmer
arrested for
drug trafficking
A Lake Butler man has been
arrested for drug trafficking
following an undercover
investigation by the Bradford-
Union-Starke Taskforce on
Eradicating Drugs (BUSTED)
and the Florida Bureau of
Altohol, Tobacco and
Firearms.
After an undercover buy of
prescription pills, on March
19, Charles Howard, 57, of
LIake Butler was arrested for
allegedly dealing in
prescription drugs. Officers
executed a search warrant on
Howard's residence as well.
Allegedly more than 100 pills
with an estimated street value
of $1;500 was found. Howard
was subsequently arrested and
held on a $200,000 bond
before being released.

Flat tire leads to
LB man's arrest,
Union County Sheriffs
Office Maj. Garry Seay
stopped to assist a motorist
with a flat tire on March 3, but
eventually wound up arresting
the driver instead.
James D. Willis, 24, of Lake
Butler was driving a pickup
with a trailer full of I-beam
steel when the trailer had a flat
tire. Seay saw .the disabled
vehicle on S.R. 238 and
stopped to offer assistance.
Because the trailer was full
of I-beam metal and was being
hauled early in the morning,
Seay asked for identification
from the two men present.
Willis did not have a driver's
license and the passenger had a
Florida ID card. *
Seay reported that when he
checked, he found that Willis'
license had been suspended.
See* asked the men where the
metal had come from and
Willis gave him the name of a
man who Willis said owned a
shed that was being torn down.
Seay contacted the man, but
he said he didn't have a shed
beg, tr. ,down and he didn't
give Willis any I-beam metal.
!Seay spoke to the men again
and the passenger said he
didn't know anything about the
metal, he was just helping to
change the tire on the trailer.
Willis then told Seay the metal
came from somewhere in
Lawtey.
LSeay. had the trailer
irmpounded until the ownership
of the metal could be
determined. Further
investigation revealed both the
metal and the trailer had been
re~noved from Shadd Trucking
without the owner's
permission.
iWillis was charged with
driving while' -license is
suspended or revoked and
grand theft.

evabyone, they provide impor-
tant insight and information
critical to our success.
Tuesday began before dawn.
Leaving Fernandina Beach just
before 6 a.m., I was able to
rfake the three-hour drive and
arrive with time to spare for my
9:30 a.m. PreK-12 Appropria-
tions Subcommittee.
Committee Chair Rep. Marti
Coley shared her first draft of
the budget which focused on
preserving funding for the class-
room. Unfortunately, the pri-
mary element in the PreK-12
budget is in the Florida Educa-
tion Financing Program (FEFP)
budget line item. Of the general
revenue funding, K-12/FEFP
represents nearly $8.3 billion out
of $8.776 billion funding. Other
items in the PreK-12 Budget
include,
Eaily learning
$368.6 million
Education Media & Technology
$3.9 million
State Board of Education
: $51.7 million
Federal Grants
$12.9 million
State Grants K-12/Non FEFP
$52.9 million
The K-12/Non FEFP State
Grants include such good pro-
grams as Take Stock in Chil-
dren, YMCA State Alliance,
Florida Alliance of Boys and
Girls Clubs, and Big Broth-.
ers/Big Sisters. In the first draft
of the budget, these programs all
received a 50-percent reduction
in funding. Other programs sus-
tainicd a 100-percent cut in this
first budget. I know the'mem-
bers will work hard to preserve
levell funding" but this year the
economic conditions will.bring
serious reductions.
The Federal Grants allocation
is tightly controlled by the fed-
eral government. A significant
portion of these funds support
the school lunch and breakfast
programs.
The bottom line reflects a
7.66 percent reduction in per
student funding from the last
budget year. This number in-
chides factors such as increased
enrollment. reduced tax rolls,
loss of stimulus funding and
exclusion of the .25 supermajor-
ity millage in he FEFP funding
formula. These numbers make
crafting a budget that does not
reduce classroom spending near
impossible.
Following my K12 appropria-
tions committee meeting, I met
with representatives from Edi-
son State College and Practitio-
ners Resource Network. The
highlight of the morning was
visiting with members from Liv-


for violation of probation.

Nora Heuton, 55, of
Keystone Heights was arrested
.March 16 by CCSO deputies
for felony DUI, refusal to
submit to a sobriety test and
possession of a controlled
substance without a
prescription.
Michael Thomas Holloway,
31, of Lawtey was arrested
March 15 by BCSO deputies
for felony domestic battery.
Bond was set at $50,000 and
he was released on bond
March 15.
Melinda Joy Johnson, 44, of
Raiford was booked into the
Bradford County Jail on March
15 on an out-of-county
warrant. Bond was set at
$2,500 and she was released
on bond March 16.
George Joseph Lajoie, 24, of
Lake Butler was arrested
March 11 by UCSO Deputy
Whitehead on two Columbia
County warrants, one for
driving while license is
suspended or revoked and one
for driving without a valid,
license. Total bond was set at
$1,014.50.

ing Waters Fellowship from
Yulee. They made the trip to
Tallahassee for the express pur-
pose of praying for our state
leaders in government. It was a
blessing to be able to share with
them the concerns that I have for
our state and to have them pray
for wisdom and courage.
Their leadership is part of an
organized effort to have
churches from all across the
state to come to_ the Capitol to
offer prayers on-THhalf of our
state and its leaders. Many
groups come to our Capitol with
all sorts of petitions and requests
and only this year are we seeing
our churches coming quietly to
offer their petitions for wisdom
ahd guidance in our great state.
Tuesday afternoon at 2:45
p.m. we were on the House

and respectful and the teacher

Wednesday morning began
with desk work at 7:30 a.m. and
a 9 a.m. subcommittee meeting
in Rulemaking and Regulation.
We passed out four bills, mov-
ing them to their next committee
stop and spent quite a bit of time
talking about "rules of concern"
within the Department of Educa-
tion Rehabilitative Services

learned that Florida statute re-
quires DOF to "monitor" data
and the department wants to
move away from having the
providers fax the forms. Instead,
for about three years they have
been "debating" on how to eas-
ily get the providers to use a

web-based program to enter the
data in themselves. The provid-
ers told us it takes 45 minutes to
enter a claim and it is cost pro-
hibitive. DOE says it should
only take 10 minutes to enter a
claim and that instead of having
the providers perform the data
entry effort, they can ask the
carriers to do the work.
When I asked the question,
"What do you do with the data?"
and "What decisions do you
make with this data?", they
didn't have an answer, other
than to say that statute requires
them to "monitor."
It is unacceptable for state
agencies to create requirements
that result in additional work-
load and a drag on productivity
when we have no clear under-
standing of why we are collect-
ing the data in the first place.
Why is the DOE staff not alert-
ing the Legislature that they are
not using the data and request a
change in statute? Why have we
been talking about this for three
years? These are all questions
that I had a chance to raise in the
committee.
I suggested that we do a word
search on the word "monitor"
and have each agency answer
the question. "how are we using
the data?" I wonder howl' mann
other examples like this one
exist in our state government.

Sunday, March 20, 2011, at her


p.m.
There is never enough time
for all that must be done during
the session while in the Capitol
Complex. The offices are fre-
quently busy with meeting,
lobbyists and others working
their issues and looking for solu-
tions. The early passage of the
Teacher Quality Bill allowed me
time to prepare the presentation
for Saturday's Education Town
Hall and complete a White Pa-
per on Northeast Florida State
Hospital privatization issues. I
finally finished my work around
10 p.m. and left the Capitol.
Thursday began with meet-
ings with Chairman Proctor and
a first generation limited-income
college student. Then it was
time to attend the Education
Committee where we talked
about higher education issues.
My main focus for the day
was to meet with individual
house cmhbers about my con-
cerns regarding the possible
privatization of North East Flor-
ida State Hospital. I met with 10
individuals this single day to
review the analysis contained in
the While Paper. Basically, the
argument is this: NEFSH oper-
ates at a lower cost per day and
cares for more medically com-
plex individuals: so where are
the benefits of privatization?
The facts are clear that privatiza-
tion does not work as a budget
reduction exercise for NEFSH in
parln die Ii tihe fact NFI:SH is
alreadN the low cost provider in
Florida.
I renewed mi focus again on
Friday \with three more meetings
to discuss my privatization con-
cerns. L.arry Williams, my dis-
trict aide. did a g"eat job jug-
gling the schedule so I could
meet with so many members in
such a short time. The face to
face meetings with members are
critical to shaping the issues
around an emerging debate, like
privatization. It is really in de-

tail where we find the answers
to the issues we face and easy
slogans sound good but if the
details do not back it up then it
is not good state policy.
The week ended with the Se-
lect Committee on Government
Reorganization. We had a pres-
entation by the new Department
of Children and Family Secre-
tary, David Wilkins. What was
interesting as he discussed pri-
vatization and his plan to make
$22 million in reductions, he
stated that his plan was to seek a
seven percent reduction from the
private facilities as well. I am
sure this was news to many and
again makes you wonder how
they will manage a seven per-
cent reduction and then deliver
another 6-14 percent reduction
to take over responsibility at the
state run facilities. The Select
Committee will seek major pol-
icy change to reorganize the
state economic development
efforts as well as the health de-
'partment.
On Friday afternoon state
economists released the new
revenue estimates, adding $135
million to the budget shortfall.
The final number we will use to
craft the 2011-12 state budget
reflects a $3.75 billion shortfall.
I never lose sight of the fact
that this privilege I have to rep-
resent you in our State Capitol is
but a short and temporary as-
signment. I have dedicated my-
self to working hard to ensure
we get the most out of each day
and address the needs that you
have surfaced with your calls, e-
mails and letters. Please make
sure you stay in touch, we need
your ideas, your thoughts and
most importantly, your prayers.

ANTICIPATION HIGH AS OHIO VALLEY GOLD &


SILVER REFINERY OPENS FOR BUSINESS NEXT WEEK

IN GAINESVILLE!


By David Morgan
STAFF WRITER

Been following the gold and silver market
lately? Well if you have a jewelry box,:a
lock box fullof gold or a coffee can full
of old coins, you should be, according
to Ohio Valley Refinery, spokesperson
John Miller. "The gold and silver markets
have not been this strong for over 30.
years" said Miller. Typically when the
U.S. dollar is weak and. the economy is
flat, gold and silver markets soar. "That's
good news if you are sitting on a few
gold necklaces or an old class ring" says
Miller.
Next week, starting Tuesday at
9am and every day next week through
Saturday; the Ohio Valley Refinery is
setting up a,satellite refinery right here
in Gainesville at the Courtyard
by Marriott; During their.5 day stay,
-anyone can bring gold, silver or platinum
items and turn them in for immediate
payment, explains John Miller. "Just about
everybody has- some amount of gold or
silver just lying around collecting dust and
this week anybody can sell theirs direct to
our refinery. Typically selling direct to a
refinery is reserved for larger- wholesale
customers like jewelry stores, pawn shops
and laboratories" says Miller. "We are
changing how business is done," he
explains "we want to do business with
everybody so we took our. business to
the streets". "Our. teams visit various
cities around the country hosting 5 day
events and allowing the general public
to.take advantage of our services. "The
turnout, has been overwhelming" says
Miller. "Usually each day is busier than
the previous day. It seems once people
come.to us and sell something, they are
so amazed what an old ringor gold coin
is worth, they go home and start digging


Above: Refinery representatives will be on hand next week starting Tuesday through
Saturday to purchase all gold, silver and platinum items, as well as coins. Public welcome


around for more and telling relatives,
.. friendsacld neighblibs. i's like a feeding
frenzy by the third day. People line up with
everything from gold jewelry to sterling
silver flatware sets to old coins. I think
during this bad economy everybody can
use extra money, but most people say they
are taking advantage of selling direct to
our refinery because of the higher prices
we pay".
During this special event, anyone is
welcome to bring all types of gold, silver
and platinum to the refinery and turn it
in for instant payment. The types of items
they will accept include all gold jewelry,
gold coins, gold ounces, dental gold,
old coins made before 1965 including
silver dollars, halves, quarters and dimes,
anything marked "sterling" including
flatware sets, tea pots, silver bars, silver
ounces and all industrial precious metals.
What should you expect if you go
to the event to sell your gold and/or
silver? Just gather up all gold, silver and


platinum in any form. If you are not sure
if it's gold or silver, bring it in and they
will test it for free. When you arrive at
the event you will be asked to fill out a
simple registration card and will be issued
a number. Seating will be available.
When your number is called you will be
escorted to a table where your items will
be examined, tested and sorted. This only
takes a few minutes, using their expertise
and specialized equipment. Items will be
counted and/or .weighed. The value of,
the items will be determined based on
up to the minute market prices. Live feeds
will be available at the event displaying


SCRAP GOL
& GOLD


current market prices of all precious
metals. If you choose to sell your items,
they will be bagged and tagged and.you
will be escorted to the cashier to collect
your payment. Waiting time to sell your
items may range from just a few minutes
to 1 hour, so bring something to read.
If you are the owner of a jewelry store,
pawn shop, dentist office or a dealer you
are encouraged to call ahead to make
an appointment with the smelt master to
discuss their special dealer -programs.
They can be reached during Refinery
hours at (217) 787-7767.
Ohio Valley Refinery will open for
business Tuesday from 9am-6pm. The
event continues every day through next
Saturday. No appointment is needed for
the general public.

SILVER AND GOLD COIN PRICES

UP DURING POOR ECONOMY.


Collctors nd Enthusiasts in
Gainesv e with $200,000
to Purchase Yours

By Ken Mclntosh
STAFF WRITER

Got Coin? It might be just the time to
cash in. Next week, starting Tuesday
and continuing through Saturday, the
International Collectors Association in
conjunction with .the Ohio Valley.Gold
& Silver Refinery will be purchasing all
types of silver and gold coins direct.from
the public. All types are welcome and the
event is free.
Collectors will be on hand to identify
and sort your coins. Then the quality or
grade will be determined; The titter the
grade the more they are worth, according
to collectors I talked to. With the, silver
and gold markets high, prices of older
coins are too. Any coins minted before
1965 in the U.S. are 90% silver, except
nickels and pennies.
The coin's worth is determined by the
rarity aord the grade. Old silver dollars
are worth a.great premium right now,
even well worn heavily circulated ones
are bringing good premiums. Franklin
and Kennedy half dollars, Washington
quarters, Mercury and Roosevelt dimes
are all worth many times the face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty,
Standing Liberties, and Barber coins are
worth even more.
Gold coins are really worth a lot
right now, according to Brian Eades of
the International Collectors. Association.
"This country didn't start minting coins
until 1792" says.Eades. He explained,
"Before that, people would trade goods
using gold dust and nuggets. Some
shop keepers would take more gold
than needed to pay for items purchased.
There was no uniform system of-making
change."
The -government opened the first
mints and began .distributing the coins
in 1792. By the beginning of the 19th

century, coins and paper currency were
wide spread and our monetary system
was here to stay. In 1933 Roosevelt
required all banking institutions to turn
in all gold coins. Once all banks turned
in this gold, the president raised the
gold standard from $20.00 per ounce to
$33.00 per ounce. This was his way of
stimulating the economy during the great
depression. However, gold coins were
never redistributed after the recall. But not
all gold coins were turned in. "Many folks
during that time didn't completely trust the
government and chose to keep their gold"
said Eades.
T These gold coins are sought after by
collectors today and bring many times
the face value. Any gold coins with the
mint marks of CC, D or 0 will bring nice
premiums Collectors.at the event will be
glad to show you where to look. Other
types of coins will also be purchased
including foreign coins, Indian cents, two
cent pieces, half dimes, three cent pieces
and buffalo nickels to name a few.
Collectors warn people against
trying to clean their coins, as significant
damage can be done and the coin's value
lessened.
