I. punch leads to charges for BC coach

Telegraph Editor

A. A vacation to Las Vegas turned
into a nightmare for a Bradfbrd
County assistant coach and. his
family after a confrontation re-
sulted in the accidental death of
a Utah man.
Now the coach, 37-year-old
Benjamin Hawkins, is facing

murder charges.
The victim, John Allen Mass-
ie, 46, was pronounced dead less
than 30-minutes after .Hawkins .
punched him in the jaw and he
fell to the ground.
The two were at a. casino
known as O'Shea's the night of
July 6. The casino apparently has
a reputation on the Las Vegas
strip, for being a hard-partying

locale. According to the police report,

County receives good report in audit

Times Editor

At a recent Union County
Commission meeting DDF (for-
mnerly Douglas, Douglas, &
Farnsworth) Certified Public
Accountants presented the com-
r-ission with a final copy of the
-J68-page audit report.
Deficiencies and material
: In the. schedule of findings,
the report noted that DDF
identified deficiencies in the
county's vehicle policy. The
policy stipulates that vehicles
assigned to personnel as part of
their duties. are to be used for
,.county business only, however,
t. he county allows employees to
Xise county vehicles to commute
to and from their homes which
is considered personal use and
taxable to the employees under
IRS regulations.
. The recommendation by DDFis
that the county work on enforcing
a policy for an accountability
plan. That already exists. "We
would like to. basically, enforce
the plan as it stands," said Union
County Clerk of. Court Finance
Director Donna Jackson to the
The commission's county
management team responded

to the finding with the
following statement, "County
administration recognizes the
need for employees to follow the
county's vehicle usage policy.
Special note will be given to all.
county employees with access
to county-owned, vehicles that
vehicles are to be used for county
business only."
The report also found
significant deficiencies in internal
control. The county commission
has. a purchasing policy that
stipulates the manner in which
purchase-orders and competitive
quotes are to be issued and
approved. However, during the
audit, DDF noted that purchase
orders were not completed prior
to the purchase being made and
some were not dated. There were
instances where it was unclear
who authorized purchases. In
addition, a "piggyback" bid was
utilized but the items purchased
on the "piggyback" bid were not
the same as the items purchased
on the original bid. Multiple
purchase orders were issued
for the same item purchased
to circumvent the $5,000
competitive quote requirement.
The recommendation
made to the board was that
purchasing policies be revisited
for compliance. If compliance

cannot be attained, consideration
should be given to rewriting the
Jackson said, "We will
readdress the board with that
and ask the board's input and:
the possibility of modifying the
policy in some way so that we
utilize a purchase requisition or
something of that nature rather
than the purchase orders which
are just not being used."
Thecommission's management
team responded to the finding
with the following statement,
"We recognize the need to
review and possibly revise .the
county's purchasing policies with'
regard to'items noted. The use
of purchase order forms allows,
documentation of the purchase
and also provides a uniform
mechanism for all departments
to describe the items being
purchased, as well as the public
purpose served by those items or
services. ,
"It is :possible that another
type of authorization form
could be utilized which meets
documentation requirements,
and aides department heads
in tracking purposes, without
generating paperwork which
essentially serves no purpose.
The policy will be reviewed
by management. and potential

modification will be presented to
the board for approval."
DDF also found a weakness
in internal controls over county
funds, citing that invoices were
not always submitted to the clerk
for payment so that the payment
could be made within the 45-
day requirement established
by Florida Statutes. Monthly
accounts receivable write-offs
from the county's third-party
billing agency for emergency
medical services were not turned
over to the county finance
department for recording.
However, the report. notes that
this was corrected after year-
end. It also noted that some lease
and purchase agreements, grant
contractsand grantreimbursement
requests were signed by someone
other than those authorized by
Florida Statutes and the county's
purchasingg policies.
DDF recommended that the
procedures. and responsibilities
should be reviewed with board
personnel to ensure that the clerk
Sand her staff are made aware of
all matters that are within the
clerk's scope of responsibility.
Thecommission's management
.team responded to the finding

LB man jailed for

exploiting elderly

Michael Charles Fluharty,

money transfers, debit card
transactions and cash," Henley-
Freeman said.

Hawkins' wife, Leticia, 35,
came forward after his arrest to
say that her husband .was de-
fending himself. Massie was ag-
gfessive and didn't seem like he
would leave her husband alone,
she told the Associated Press.
Hawkins has three children,
and he and his wife were in Las
.Vegas for a three-day trip with
some friends from Monticello.
They had been in Vegas for a
few hours when the confronta-
tion happened.
Others who know Hawkins
have defended him as being level-
headed and nonviolent, including
his sister Cilitia Brown, who said
her brother was depressed and
sad when he spoke to her over
the phone from the jail in Clark
County, Nev.
"People who know Ben know,
this is not, he would not just hit
anybody because somebody
says black man in a yellow shirt.
That's something he wouldn't
even pay attention to. He would
keep on walking," Cilitia told
Las Vegas' KTNV.
Also speaking out for Hawkins
was Bradford County Sheriff
Gordon Smith, whose letter to
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace
William Jansen.played a role in
Hawkins' bail hearing Tuesday
morning. In it Smith vouched
for Hawkins as an upstanding
citizen, according to the Review-
Jotirnal, and said he would make
sure the defendant made it to any
scheduled court hearings.
Jansen reportedly did not be-

a first-degree murder charge.
Prosecutors asked for bail to
be set at $ 100,000, but Jansen set
it at $25,000. Hawkins' defense
attorney, Jack Buchanan, said
bail should be posted and his cli-
ent released as soon as Tuesday
night. Hawkins has been held at
the Clark County Detention Cen-

The report in general...
At a- glance, financial high-
lights of the county's 2009-2010
fiscal year included: assets of the
county exceeded its liabilities by
$15.7 million ($15,696,479 net
assets). Of this amount $2.7 mil-
lion ($2,713,950) may be used
to meet the county's ongoing
- obligations to citizens and credi-
tors. Governmental activities in-
creased the county's net assets by
$3.2 million ($3,186,487). And
the county's net capital assets in- \
creased by nearly 21 percent dur-
ing the current fiscal year.
Approximately 83 percent of
,the county's net assets reflect.
,its investment in capital assets
.such as land, buildings, improve-
Zments, infrastructure, vehicles
.and equipment, less any related
?,debt used to acquire thqse as-
,sets that is still outstanding. The
county uses these assets to pro-
?;vide services to its citizens.
Governmental funds...
SAs of Sept: 30,2010, the coun-
:ty's governmental funds reported
Combined ending fund balances
: of $3.6 million ($3,612,082), and
.an increase of $353,455 in com-
parison with the prior year. The
county reports the six major gov-
ernmental funds.
: The Local Housing Assistance

during his first appearance July

had still not had a chance to re-

age, Buchanan said.
The school district was await-
ing news on formal charges
before making a decision on
Hawkins' employment.
Hawkins is a 1992 graduate
from Bradford High School who
returned to coach at the school
in 2006. At the time he said it

Hawkins had changed careers
in order to work with kids, and
he told the Telegraph at the time
that he chose education instead
of juvenile justice because he
wanted to impact kids' lives and
steer them away from trouble. He
took a pay cut from his office job
to begin teaching at the former
Renaissance Center, where he
said he learned patience working
with some of the district's most
troubled kids.
He "was subsequently able to
become a coach, and he has also
taught intensive reading at the
middle school and history at the
high school.
While Hawkins' family is
waiting to see what will happen
with him legally, Massie's fam-
ily is mourning his death. Ruth
Drinkard of Arizona told the Las
Vegas Review-Journal that her
brother was always so laid back
and she was shocked to hear that
he had been involved in a fight.
"It was just not in his nature.
I can only remember him fight-
ing one time in his life. That was
in high school, and that was over
me," Drinkard said.
Massie, a former airman, was
a Gulf War veteran who was
awarded three bronze stars. He
worked as a civilian at Hill Air

Outsourcing Our Faith
In religious matters, many today believe and practice that
which is not found in the Bible. Why? A large reason for this
problem is people do not study the Bible. They do not ask for
book, chapter and verse for what they hear and believe. 2 Tim.
2:15 says "Study to show thyself"approved unto God, a
workman that needeth not to- be ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth."
But like many businesses., today, people are outsourcing
their faith to others; thereby they believe and do things that are
not found in the Scriptures. It is no different today than it was
2,60,0 years ago. The prophet Jeremiah said to God's people,
"the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own
power; and my people love to have it so" (Jer. 5:30-31). It is
our duty (not others) to examine what is taught. The Bereans
did (Acts 17:11). Do we?

John Milton
1608-1674, British Poet

Books are not absolutely
dead things, but do

contain a certain potency
of life in them, to be as
active as the soul whose

John Milton

In a world that is

Cancer has touched Michael
Potapow's life twice.
Now, Potapow plans to help
touch the lives of those dealing
with cancer today by touching
the summit of Mount
Kilimanjaro as part of a Climb
for Cancer Foundation
expedition consisting of 13
other climbers.
"It's going to be an
experience," said Potapow, a
Gainesville resident who owns
the McDonald's restaurants in
Keystone Heights and Starke.
"I'm nervous. I'm scared, but I
know that God will bring us
through it. Seven days after
climbing, I'm going to stand
on that summit, look around
and say I accomplished
something and raised money
for this great organization." ,
Potapow spoke at the July 5
meeting of the Kiwanis Club
of Starke, sharing the details of
the trip-he leaves Thursday,
July 21-and why. he got
It was a friend of his-Mike
Carr-who called him about
the idea of making the climb.
Each participant in Climb for
Cancer raises $10,000, though
Potapow said he has set his
fundraising goal at $20,000.
Climb for Cancer is a non-
for-profit organization in
Gainesville that devotes the
funds it raises for cancer
research as well as to cover
some of the everyday costs
families incur as a result of
loved ones' hospitalizations in
the form of vouchers for
parking and meals, for
Potapow's father-in-law died
from cancer this past year. His
mother died from cancer at the
age of 55 in 1997.
Also, Potapow saw cancer's
effects when serving as the
board president of Ronald
McDonald House Charities of
The chance to do something
to assist Climb for Cancer and
its efforts is something
Potapow is looking forward to.
"It's going to be a great-
trip," he told Starke Kiwanis
members, pausing for a secofid
before adding, "Well, I say
that now."
You see, this will be
Potapow's first experience
with mountain climbing. He's
only,-attempting. -the. .largest
mountain in Africa-an
inactive volcano that summits
at more than 19,000 feet.
"We start our climb at 5,000
feet," Potapow said. "We
summit at sunrise the seventh
day, leaving camp at midnight,
climbing for seven hours to a
height of 19,500 feet."
Kilimanjaro is unique,
though, in that typical
mountain-climbing equipment
is not necessary to reach the
'peak. It is considered one of
the world's most' accessible
summits. According to the

Determination is right,
because accessible does not
equate to easy. Potapow talked
about how one portion of the
climb will include an elevation
gain of 18 percent over four to
five miles.
Potapow said he has been
working with a personal trainer
since January to ready himself
for the climb. He has been
taking part in a CrossFit
training program, focusing on
his leg strength..
"We've been doing squats,"
Potapow said. ."We've been
doing. box jumps. I've been on
an incline carrying 35-pound
kettle bells for 20, 30 minutes
at a time."
His regiment has also
included stadium steps, which
prompted Potapow to say, "I
know every creak in every
stair at the University of


Florida stadium. I climb that
three to four times a week."
Each climber will carry a
day pack, with a desired
weight of less than 20 pounds.
That will contain such things
as food and energy bars, etc.,
as well as water.
Sherpas will accompany the
climbers and carry larger packs
that will include sleeping bags,
change of clothing, etc.
- If needed, Sherpas can carry
a climber in danger off the

"Three of them will carry
you off the mountain in three
hours," Potapow said. '.'They
can get going."
Altitude sickness "is -a
concern, so Potapow will be
carrying several medications to
help with that if he does get
sick. However, he said most

Livestock were always

The average family farm in
Bradford County also grew

Dear Editor:
Our Farmers Market isn't as
good as the one at Melrose was
heard for some time. Then
Cheryl Owens steps up to the
plate to make Keystone's
Farmers Market even better.
There are a lot of vendors, and
guess what-not enough
Do you have any idea what
vendors must do to be ready to
serve you? Let's get real. For
this undertaking to be a
success, you must go to Nature
Park and buy some of the
products that are being offered.
You can get your lawn mower
blades sharpened (plus some
other items that may need
sharpening). you can buy
plants, veggies, have a sign
painted,, buy lawn furniture,
get local honey and lots of
other things.
So please, before it is too
late. go to the Keystone
Farmer's Market and help not
only the vendors, but yourself.

Depression felt only
indirectly in Starke
The Great Depression of
1929 didn't hit Starke as hard
as it did other places. at least
not directly. said Wainwright.
The families of the area grew
their own food and didn't deal
too much with cash. However,
the Depression might have
indirectly contributed to the
first big economic disaster
(other than failing crops)
which hit Bradford County
with the closing of the
Bradford County Bank in
"We had a bad crop year and
almost all the farmers had to
borrow money and then
couldn't pay it back," he said.
After the destruction of the
cotton crop in the 20s,
merchants had stopped
"carrying" farmers. With
cotton gone, agriculture wasn't
viewed as a sure thing as it had
once been.
Farmers had to borrow
money from the bank for
supplies and then pay it back
when the crops came in. When
the crops failed, the farmers
had no money to pay the bank,
particularly with the
Depression making money
even shorter than it was. With
no federal insurance such as

today, the bank was forced to

hired laborers, but agriculture
was still the main employment
of blue-collar workers.
From high to low...
1932 saw major
One of the biggest blows to
agriculture in the area was the
drought of 1932. There was no
water available for irrigation at
that time. "I remember Titus
Olson came to the. area selling
Delco light plants and water
pumps," said Wainwright.
There was a lot of local well.
drilling at the time, with wells
being shallow, only about 50-
60 feet, he said.
At that time Starke had
telephones, telegraph and
electricity, but little private
motor transportation. Few
areas other than Starke had
these things, although Lawtey
had lights.
In 1932 Franklin D.
Roosevelt was inaugurated as
president of the United States
and he declared a moratorium
on banks (banks were declared
legally exempt from paying
their obligations for a certain
period of time). So many
banks had failed that the
country could no longer
operate without a stable
banking economy.
The Bank of Starke also
closed atthat time and the area
was in a financial crisis. Some
farmers were able to get help
from the Farmers and Dealers
Bank in Lake Butler, the only
bank in the area to survive this
economic disaster, but even
F&D was having to run a tight
ship during these lean years.

Corn is still produced in Bradford County today. While not the major cash crop that it
once was for almost every Bradford farmer, corn is still important to local agriculture.

"The banks in Lawtey,
Hampton, Raiford and Starke
didn't weather the storm, nor
did hundreds or thousands of
banks nationwide," said
Wainwright. "Things were
very bleak for a number of
years in this area."
Trucking firm helped out
this area
One thing that helped things
pick up was that a Mr. Miller
came into the area operating a
fleet of trucks to transport
strawberries up north. Trucks
got the fragile fruit to northern
markets much faster than
"I had the experience to
make a trip to New York City
in 1934 as a truck driver's
helper," said Wainwright. Two
local men who drove for
Miller were B.B. Harley and
Alton Boles.
Refrigerated trucking
begins in 1935
in 1935 Al Hartman began "
installing refrigeration units on
trucks.. With the .help of
carpenter Ben, Hall, they built
what may have been the first
refrigerated trucks in the
United States.
They designed an ice bunker
with a fan to circulate the cold
air and keep the produce cold.
With the advent of refrigerated
trucking, movement of crops
to Jacksonville shipping in
refrigerated steamships almost

"Things went pretty well
from then on. There was not a
lot of money in the area, but
everyone managed to eat,"
Wainwright said.
President Roosevelt started
his welfare program about this
time and that helped
enormously. Commodities,
staple' and dry goods, and
shoes were shipped in by the
carload and distributed by the
Red Cross. (Wainwright's
mother was the chairman of
the local American Red Cross
chapter at the time).
Farming relied on
sweat, guesses, not
Up until about the mid 30s
there were no tractors in the
county. The plowing was done
by horses and mules and a lot
of people with hoes, noted
Insecticides were few and
fungicides were unheard of.
Farmers had to rely on their
best guess and experience as to
what to do about diseases on,

type of people we did, I don't
know if we would still be in
existence or not," said
Wainwright. "You have to

"The modern farmer has a
lot of problems, but it's
nothing compared to what our
forefathers had to deal with. I

don't .think many farmers
could exist today, relying on
the old methods," he said..
Late 30s saw recovery
under way
1937-1938 saw things
beginning to look brighter. A
recovery was under way,
thanks to government
programs being used.
"The Civilian Conservation
Corps (CCC)' was one of the
greatest things that happened,"
said Wainwright. Some of the
CCC projects completed
locally were an addition to the
"old" courthouse (Now Santa
Fe College Andrews Center)
and building the health
department under the
supervision of Dr. W.E.
Middleton (Dr. Parks and Dr.
Biggs were the other two
doctors in the area at the time,
and Dr. Brown in Lawtey).
In 1938, under the
supervision of Commissioner
of Agriculture Nathan Mayo, a
state system of farmers
markets was started for the
purpose of grouping the
farmers together to sell their
crops so larger supplies would
draw more buyers.

Administration (WPA) built

1938. Local merchants and.

money to buy 40 acres of land
where the Bradford County
Fairgrounds are now to donate
to the state for this purpose.
SLocal merchant F.F. Stump
(founder of Stump's
Department Store, a longtime
presence in Starke) was a
leader in this movement.
."By this time agriculture in
the county was moving fairly
well upward," said
Wainwright. Fordhook lima
beans were in major
production with hundreds of
thousands of bushels leaving
the area daily.
In the' late 50s Wainwright
was asked to take over the job
as manager of the Farmers
Market. He had always farmed
and had begun farming on la
larger scale just prior to being
asked to manage the market.
Refrigerated trucks vast
Many local people bought
their own refrigerated trucks to
move produce and hired
drivers. The trucks replaced
the railroads because they were
faster and more reliable. "We
called the route north to
market the 'milk route,'" said
Before the advent of the
refrigerated truck, all of a
farmer's crop was loaded into
rail cars for shipping to one
destination. With a. regular
"milk route" farmers with
refrigerated trucks could sell
portions of their crop in
different places and make
money even if the volume
buyers were not available.
Refrigerated trucks became
so common that the noise they
.made while running overnight
(to cool off the truck and get it
ready for loading) caused so
many local people to lose sleep
that an ordinance was passed
forbidding the trucks to be left
.running overnight within the
city limits.
Technology began helping
improve agriculture with more
than just refrigerated trucks.
-'Tractors came in around tie

mid 40s. Before the tractor,
there were three mule barns in
Starke (late 20s, early 30s) one
located across from the old
courthouse (now the Andrews
Center), one located at the
corner of what is now U.S. 301
and Jefferson Street and one
on Call Street next to where
the Florida Twin Theatre is
today. There also used to be a
horse trough at each end of
Call Street for watering horses.
War slowed farming
World War II came on and
agriculture in the area slowed
with so many farmers and farm
laborers being called into
service. A lot of the farm labor
also, went to work at Camp
Blanding at prices farmers
couldn't match.
"At that time a carpenter or
skilled worker could earn $1
per hour (at Blanding), on the
farm, he could only earn $1.50
per day," said Wainwright, "A
lot of manpower left the farm
for a more lucrative position."
After. the war, agriculture
improved once more, but was
nothing compared to prewar
days, said Wainwright.
Most farmers in the area
during these days had 5-10
acres in production. "Farms
weren't big after the war, but
then we never had really big
farms in this area. A big farm
here was 20 acres, in other
areas, big farms are 2,000
acres," said Wainwright.

From the 30s into the 50s,
agriculture, grew steadily,
although still handicapped by
the shortage of labor. In the
early 50s Wainwright served
as mayor of Starke and was
instrumental in getting a state
grant to build a railroad siding
at the Farmers Market.

Wainwright managed
Farmers Market
While managing the Farmers
Market, Wainwright was
instrumental in the decision to
stop selling strawberries in the
24-pint wooden crates of old
days, and start selling them in
the 12-pint flats used today.
As manager of the market,
he was able to secure new
buyers who would advance
money to farmers so that they
could produce the. crops the
buyers wanted, generally
strawberries. After a great deal
of hard work, local farmers
built -strawberry production
back up to prewar volume.
"At one time over a two-
hour period in 1962, I
auctioned 120 loads of
strawberries for growers," said
In 1962 Wainwright left the
market to pursue his own
. interests, and continued to be
active in agriculture until his
retirement. He had been a
patron of the market since

Stephens celebrates

93rd birthday

Sarah Katharine Stephens," also a resident at
Parkside, was born on July 15, 1918, and will
celebrate her 93rd birthday Friday, July 15, at
Parkside Assisted Living in Starke at 2 p.m.
Stephens also'invites friends and relatives to stop
by for cake and ice cream.
Stephens was the manager of the cotton candy,
snow cone and candied apple operation at
Strickland's Landing for many years.
She taught a lot of employees good work practices
and was protective of the business by trying to keep
workers from eating all of Frow Strickland's profits
Stop by and wish her a happy birthday!

Migrant labor not the
The decline in the
availability of economical
labor was the key to the
decline in agriculture in this
area, said Wainwright. "We
tried to get in migratory labor,
but federal restrictions made it
too hard for local farmers. The
laborers had to have living
quarters almost equal. to a
major hotel and with our short
growing season, we just
couldn't stand to lay out that
kind of money for such short
periods of time," he said.
Agriculture continued to
decline through the 60s he
said, although during the 60s
the advent of airfreight out of
the terminal in Jacksonville to
leading northern cities helped
some. At that time, air freight
cost only a little more than
refrigerated trucks.
Final blow
The final blow to agriculture
in the county came when the
Farmers Market burned in the
early 70s and the state of
Florida "dragged its feet" and
took two years before
replacing it, said Wainwright.
In the meantime, in Lawtey
they used an old shed to load
the strawberries in refrigerator
trucks, but without the market
to draw the growers, they went
elsewhere. The state finally
rebuilt the market at a third of
its original size, but by that
time there were few growers
left and fewer buyers, he said.
Farming has continued to
decline in the area for a
number of other reasons, as
well, said Wainwright. Few
young people are going into
farming these days, with other
jobs available. The ease with
which vegetables can be
bought from supermarkets
caused a decline in the
numbers of farmers growing
freezer vegetables.

America is a nation with,
many flaws, but hopes so
vast that only the
cowardly would refuse to
acknowledge them.

--The family traveled to
Washington Park, Ill., so that
Cole could compete in an area
qualifier at Archview MX Park
on March 19. He had to finish
in the top seven to advance to
the Sunset Ridge Loretta Lynn
Regional Qualifier. Cole took
third on his stock bike and fifth
on his modified.
At the Sunset Ridge event,
Cole had to earn a top-six
finish to qualify for the Loretta
Lynn event, which was easily
accomplished on his modified
bike with the first-place finish.
Unfortunately, bike problems
led to only a 14'h-place finish
in the stock race.
"You know your kid can do
it," Chrissy said, "but if the.

It's kind of similar to last
year when Cole qualified foir
the national championships at
Loretta Lynn Ranch on just
one of his bikes-his stock as
opposed to his modified this
year.' The family hopes that's
where the similarities end.
.A week prior to the 2010
Loretta Lynn event, Cole
competed at the National
Motocross Association Grand
Nationals in Ponca City, Okla.,
and was doing well, having
gotten through the heat races
and advancing to the .main
events in all four classes' he
was competing in.
However, Cole would wind
up in the hospital after a spill
when he and another rider
were fighting for first place on
the first corner of a race.
"'He got run over by. about'
10 'or 12 bikes," .Jimmy
Williams said.
'The family spent quite some
time at the hospital, but Cole
was released and cleared to

"The future of motocross
just isn't that guaranteed,"
Chrissy said. "He's got to have
an education, too. It's always
been, 'If you don't keep your
grades up, you're not racing.'
"For him, racing isn't a
given. He works for it."
Cole has certainly earned the
right to keep racing as a
straight-A student at Cassells
Christian Academy. He has
made the A honor roll in first,
third and fourth grades, and the
A/B honor roll in second
"We're real, real proud of
him for that," Chrissy said.
The staff at Cassells have
been cooperative in
accommodating Cole and his
family when it comes to
practicing for a race and
traveling for a race.
"If they know we're going
off, they give him his work,"
Jimmy said. "He does it when
we're out on the road and turns
it in when we get back. You
can't ask for anything better."
Cooperation can also be
found at the various tracks the
family travels to as well.
