Putnam bank robbery suspect nabbed in Starke


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Bradford County Sheriffs
Office and Starke Police Depart-
ment worked together over the
weekend to apprehend a suspect
believed to have robbed a bank
in Palatka.
Once in custody, however,
they realized the suspect had giv-
en them a false identity.
Authorities were acting on an
anonymous tip provided to po-
lice in Palatka when they went to
the Bradford Motel and Camp-
ground Sunday, July 17, around


midnight. At the time, all Palatka
police knew is that their suspect
was a white man named Mike
and that he was on probation for
or had active warrants on weap-
ons offenses.
SPD's Kelli McMahan and
John Riles cleared all but one of
the occupied motel rooms, mov-
ing residents to a safe location.
The building manager informed
them that a woman had rented
room 17 a few hours earlier. She
was accompanied by another
woman and a man fitting the rob-
bery suspect's description. They
arrived in a dark blue Chevrolet


that also matched the description
of the vehicle that may have been
used in the robbery.
McMahan and Riles unsuc-
cessfully tried to make contact
with the occupants of room '17
while Deputy Scott Konkel main-
tained surveillance from the rear
of the building. They knocked
and announced themselves, but
there was no response.
A few minutes later, Riles
and Deputy Christopher Bennett
tried to enter the room with a key
provided by the motel manager,
but the door was secured by a
deadbolt inside. At that point,'


they felt confident someone was
in the room but not responding.
They repeatedly tried to call the
phone in the motel room, but
no one ever picked up. Eventu-
ally, they called for back up, and
a number of additional officers
from the sheriffs task force re-
sponded to the scene.
Finally just before 2:30 a.m.,
electricity was cut and officers
forced their way into the room
as additional officers at the rear
of the building busted a window
and threw a distraction device
into the room. Two occupants
were handcuffed and taken into


custody while the room was
searched. Officers found a bottle
with narcotic residue and a straw
inside it and a prescription bottle
with pills and no prescription.
Dennis Michael May, 31, of
Constantine, Mich., and Stepha-
nie Lynn Brown, 28, of Key-
stone Heights were arrested for
possession of drug paraphernalia
and narcotics, and possession of
prescription medication without
a prescription. May was also ar-
rested on a warrant for robbery
and grand theft. The woman who
actually rented the room was no
longer there. Brown told authori-


ties that she wanted to answer
the door and phone, but May pre-
vented her from doing so.
. Bail for Brown was set at
$12,000, and she was released on
July 18. When the sheriff's office
ran May's fingerprints, however,
they realized he had given them
an alias. He had a previous con-
viction under the name of Mi-
chael S. Wolcoff whose history
included a 2001 conviction for
heroine trafficking. He was re-
leased from custody in Novem-
ber 2009.

Horsing around at the library...

The Union County Public Library is taking a tour around the world with its summer reading program. Recently,
library patrons headed for the wild west with some help from local cowboys. In this photo, Charlie Fink holds'
the reins while Patrick Maxwell, his mother Pergina and his sister Princess pose for a quick photo. Horses,
cows and cowboys were the theme of the day as young library patrons learned about horses and how to care
for them from local riders. The library hosts a new event in th summer program every Thursday at 10 a.m. at
the library. Today's program, Sept. 21, will be a magical mystery tour of Europe with the Great Loudini. Next
Thursday, Sept. 28, will be a tour of Africa and the land of the pharoahs. For more, see page 2A.

UC schools



named 'A'



district


BY TAMMY WILKERSON
Times Editor

The Union County School
District is once again celebrating
becoming an all "A" district. Ac-
cording to the report found on the
Florida Department of Educa-
tion's website, with a total score
of 540 points, the Union County
district received an overall "A".
Florida school grades are cal-
culated on several different per-
formance measures. A. school
receives an "A" if it receives 525
or more points, a "B" if it re-
ceives 495-524 points, .a "C" for
435-494 points, a "D" for 395-
434 points .and ah "F" for less
than 395 points.
Points are calculated as fol-
lows:
FCAT high standards one
point for each percent of stu-
dents meeting high standards
by scoring at or above a level 3
in FCAT reading, one point for
each percent of students scoring
at or above a level 3 in FCAT
mathematics, one point for each
percent of students scoring a
level 3 in FCAT science, and one
point for each percent of students
scoring a level 4 or above on the
FCAT writing assessment.
FCAT learning gains one
point for each percent of students
making learning gains in reading,
one pint for each percent of stu-
dents making learning gains in
mathematics, one point for each
percent of lowest performing
students making learning gains
in reading'and one point for each
percent of lowest performing
students making learning gains
in mathematics.
In order for a district to score
an "A," a total of 525 points or
more must be earned, at least
95 percent of students must be


tested, and at least 50 percent of
the lowest performing students
in reading and math must have
made gains in the current year.
Of the 98 percent of students
tested in Union County, 69 per-
cent of them scored a level three
or higher on reading. Seventy-six
percent scored a level three or
higher on math. Ninety-one per-
cent scored a level four on writ-
ing and 50 percent scored a level
three in science. Those scores
earned the district a total of 286
points.
Learning gains earned the dis-
trict 128 points when 60 percent
of students tested in made learn-
ing gains in reading and 68 per-
cent made gains in math.
Earning an additional 126
points, 57 percent of students
made adequate progress based on
gains in reading and 69 percent
made adequate progress in math.
By combining all points
earned, Union County had a final
score of 540 points, earning the
district an "A." This is the second
time that the district has earned
the title of an all "A" district, the
first being in 2008-2009.
On numerous occasions, Su-
perintendent Carlton Faulk has
attributed the success of the
Union County School system to
the administration, faculty, staff,
students, parents and community
support. In a letter written days
before graduation, Faulk said,
"Teachers, coaches, sponsors,
and staff: Thanks for the long
hours that you spend teaching,
coaching, and leading our youth
to be successful in life. Parents,
guardians, and supporters, thank
you again for helping students
reach one of their lifelong goals.
As I have said before, we are for-
tunate to live and raise our fami-
lies in Union County."


Lake Butler's Sirmones chosen to serve as mayor


BY TAMMY WILKERSON
Times Editor

Lake Butler City Commissioner Fred Sirmones was named
mayor at the commission meeting held on July 11.
Elected to the city commission in 2010, Sirmones ,was nomi-
nated by former Mayor Jimmy Beasley. After a unanimous vote
by the city commission, Sirmones was congratulated by those in
attendance as he took his seat on the board.
Sirmones currently works full time as a vocational instructor
for the Florida Department of Corrections. As a former gradu-
ate of Union County High School, Sirmones attended Florida
State University, Florida State Fire College and Block and Brick
Construction Trade School before he became a part of the Lake
Butler City Commission.
"Breaking ground for a new fire station, water park and skate-
board park," are just some of the things that Sirmones said he


would like to accomplish in the up-
coming year.
Though being named mayor is
a great accomplishment, Sirmones
said, "Accepting Jesus Christ as my
personal savior has been the greatest
accomplishment in my life."




At a recent city council meeting
held on July 11, Fred Sirmones
was named the new mayor of
Lake Butler.

Camp Shands helps

build confidence for

local JROTC cadets


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Lake Region Monitor


Camp Shands, a Boy Scouts
of, America camp outside
of Melrose, recently hosted
approximately 300 Junior ROTC
students from Union County and
north Florida.
Lt Col. Kevin Steverson from
Union County High School's
JROTC program was in the main
rustic cabin of a control center to
see that the bugler for the next
day's"passand review"ceremony
was ready. In the middle of the
woods, it was a -busy office:
somebody was faxing, others
were talking on the phones.
Steverson was in charge of the
camp's training and operations,
managing rappelling and high
ropes training. Steverson and Lt.
Col. David King brought a total
of 26 cadets from Union and
Bradford counties.
The cadets lived in tents from
June 20 through the following
Saturday.
During the week, they
practiced rappelling, high ropes
and low ropes, aquatics and water
safety, land navigation, archery,
a confidence-building course, a
math and science lab, and a unit
on basic survival training.
Showing a visitor around"
MSgt. Gene Black from Lake
Butler said it had rained some
during their stay, which was bad
for the cadet's training, but good
in that it had helped cool things
off a little.
"These students are selected to
come here," said MSgt. Black,
"These are 16 of our best. This is
a leadership camp, and we know
the people we bring here will
benefit from it."
Black said there is a
misconception about the JROTC
program; its goal isn't really to
prepare young people to go into
the military.
"We think of this as citizenship
training,"'he,. sad. .''Rr missiqrr
is thatve"motlvate-yd.uhg people


to become better American
citizens." Only about fi\ e percent
of the cadets would actually go
into the military, he said.
To a casual onlooker, the
camp might look like some
hot, hard work and a lot of fun.
Young people wearing military
camouflage climbed very tall
poles, slid down again on zip
lines, tied knots or sat in science
and math classrooms.
One smiling cadet, Maiya
Thomas from Jacksonville,
climbed the zip line pole and slid
down with a happy scream. The
line *was so high, once she came
to a stop a step ladder was needed
to get her down.
Another young cadet said he
was a little afraid of heights, but
would do better elsewhere. And
that was OK, too; no catcalls, no
recriminations.
Another cadet scampered up a
very scary tall pole and perched,
on top, ready to swing out and
ring a bell while his buddies
down below held tightly !to his
lifeline.
Yet another cadet said the
food was good. They started the
day with pancakes and a hearty
breakfast. Later there were
subs for lunch and nobody was
complaining about the food.
MSgt. Black said they interrupt
the exercises every 15 minutes or
so and instruct the students' to
drink some water.
One group of young men came
up a- wooded pathway wearing
towels and bathing suits, probably
happy to have aquatics in the
afternoon heat. Unfortunately
their swim had been interrupted
and the possibility of lightning
ended ,their .class for the
moment.
At this summer camp, said
MSgt. Black, no student from
UCHS or BHS ever cried to go
home the day after they arrived.
"My biggest problem will be
(Saturday) after pass and review
when I try to gethefo to leave:"
he said. I

At the Genius Olympiad, held.
June 26-30 at the State Univer-
sity of New York at Oswego,
-Union County High School stu-
dent Kelly Gray received the
third place, bronze medal and an
iPod Shuffle.
The Genius (Global Environ-
mental Issues and U.S.) Olympi-
ad is an international high school
science and art competition de-
voted to projects on environmen-
tal issues. The purpose of the
olympiad is to encourage high
school students to participate in
finding solutions for global envi-
ronmental problems.
Of the 620 projects submitted,
only 188 were selected for entry.
Of those, 96 were submitted from
32 different American states, and
the remaining 92 were submitted
from 46 international countries.
Gray's project was titled "Op-
timization of DBD (Dielectric
Barrier Discharge) Plasma Ac-
tuator Geometry for Maximum
Force Production". At the 2011


International Science and Engi-
neering Fair, held in early May,
Gray's project won her a $60,000
scholarship to the Florida Insti-
tute of Technology.
Gray attended the Genius
Olympiad with her mother, Lake
Butler Elementary School kin-
dergarten teacher Elizabeth Van-
diver. While attending the olym-
piad, participants were given-
the opportunity to visit Niagara
Falls.
After the olympiad, which was
sponsored by the Terra Science
Education Foundation and the
State University of New York
at Oswego, participants were
invited to take part in the Terra
Discovery trip which made stops
in New York City and Washing-
ton, D.C.

KH home invasion


attempt leaves


2 teens jailed


Suspects chased
away by gunfire
Two Keystone Heights teens,
Raymond Scott Drawdy, 14, and
'Jesse Aron Terry,. 15, were ar-
rested on July 11 for their role
in a home invasion on Southwest
:Field Avenue.
According to a Clay County
Sheriffs Office report, Deputy
J.J. Goscila responded to a call
-around 1 p.m. about a robbery in
:progress. While en route to the
:address, the deputy heard on his
:radio that two white males had
already fled the crime scene.
While traveling on Southwest
Jasmine, he spotted two males
fitting the description. The two
males saw the patrol car and ran
to the back yard of a nearby resi-
dence.
Goscila followed and found
the boys hiding behind a tree. He,
'drew his service pistol, and or-
dered the boys to come out with
their hands raised. After follow-
ing his directions, Goscila hand-
cuffed them.
According to CCSO informa-
tion officer Mary Justino, Deputy
Goscila had the boys in custody
within two minutes of the origi-
nal dispatch.

When a CCSO detective ar-
rived, the two officers separated
the boys, advised them of their
Miranda rights and questioned
them. A third officer recovered
evidence and questioned the vic-
tims at the crime scene.
The victim, who is 19, reported
that he and his sister heard some-
one breaking in. The victim told
his sister to hide, and retrieved
his father's Smith and Wesson
.357. In the bedroom, the victim
fired the revolver at the window,

fled on foot.
A CCSO sergeant took the vic-
tim to the Susan Avenue address,
where the two boys were being
questioned. The victim identified
the two boys as the intruders.
The two defendants were
charged with burglary of an oc-
cupied dwelling, unarmed, with
no assault or battery.
Drawdy made additional state-
ments while being transported to
the Mi.ddleburg Substation and
then to the Juvenile Detention
Center in Jacksonville. Drawdy
completed a statement; both
boys were fingerprinted and pho-
tographed. Afterward, Drawdy's
mother and Terry's sister were
notified.'

At a Lake Butler Rotary Club
meeting held just one day after the
annual July 4 Celebration in Lake
Butler, a lot of concerns from the
previous day's activities were ad-
dressed.
According to past President
Scott Fisher, there were several
concerns centered around the re-
strooms. Specific concerns were
the lack of sufficient facilities, a
broken lock on the door and the
availability of soap or hand sani-
tizer. In addition, Rotarian Mag-
gie Wetzel heard concerns regard-
ing ants and electrical issues from
a couple of the vendors.
In an effort to improve the expe-
rience for future patrons, the club,
and representatives of the city,
took the list of concerns seriously
and made the decision to schedule
"pre-planning" sessions with both
the Rotary and the city council
prior to next year's event. "This
way, problems can be addressed
ahead of time," said Wetzel.
It should' be noted that Lake
Butler Volunteer Fire Chief Mike
Banks was on hand throughout
the day. and addressed &many of
the problems, as best as he could,
as they were presented to him. On
the morning of the event, Banks
walked the grounds spreading ant
killer wherever the need was pres-
ent. In addition, he continually
kept the bathroom stocked with
tissue.
Since this year's event hosted
nearly 5,000 people, the decision


to rent portable bathrooms for next
year was an almost definite pos-
sibility. In addition to the record
number .of visitors to the event,
both the bass fishing tournament
and the annual Classic Car Show
had high numbers of participants
at 37 each. "Though there were
a few problems, overall it was a
great event," said Fisher. "One of
the best."
The Union County Sheriff's
Office was represented by more
than 17 officers on duty from as
early as 4 a.m. to midnight. As a
result, the family fuun and 5K
run were performed without inci-
dent. "Due to the enormous man-
power needed, most communities
no longer offer this privilege to
the runners of the community,"
said Sheriff Jerry Whitehead.
The event this year drew the
largest turnout of vendors in the
history of the Rotary at a total of
25. Reservations are already be-
ing accepted for the 2012 event.
Possible plans would include a
craft show.
Though the July 4 Celebration
is sponsored by the Rotary Club
each year the cost ranges from
$11,000 to $15,000 most-of
the funds come from donations.
If you are a private individual or
business owner interested in mak-
ing a, donation, please mail your
donation to Contributions, Lake
. Butler Rotary July 4th Account,
P.O. Box 767, Lake Butler, FL
32054.:
The Lake Butler Rotary Club
meets every Tuesday at noon at
the First Christian Church.

College for Kids: summer


school of a different sort


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Mikey LaFollette could be at
home in bed when the day
breaks and people are making
their way to work, and who
could blame him? Many adults
would probably want to do the
same thing if they were in his
shoes-a child who does not
have to worry about school
since it's summer.
LaFollette, though, is
wrapping up a two-week
period in which he has woken
up and been at Santa Fe
College at approximately 8
a.m. to participate in school of
a different sort.
This marks the ninth year
that the Santa Fe College
Andrews Center in Starke has
hosted College for Kids, a
program for rising sixth-10"-
graders. For LaFollette, a
rising seventh-grader who is
one of 50 children attending
this year's program, it is his
second year of participation.
"It was really fun," he said
'of last year's experience. "I
only did the half-day (session)
last year. After it was all
done-after the two weeks-1
figured I was missing out, so I
did the whole-day (session)
this.year."
College for Kids offers a
variety of courses for children
to.choose from. In a sense, it is
school, and students do learn
different skills, but there is


also an emphasis on fun.
Students can get an
introduction to speaking
Spanish, work on experiments
in a chemistry lab or pick up a
Nintendo Wii remote and show
off their moves while playing
"Just Dance." They can learn
to care for children in Baby-
Sitting Survival or learn to
care for our furry friends in Pet
Care.
"It's really fun because they
show you different things,"
said Rima Fares, a rising
eighth-grader who is in her


third year of taking College for
Kids. "It's a pretty good
experience."
Program coordinator Linda
Sheffield said the idea is to
present students with an array
of subjects from which they
will choose a schedule.
"It gives them a well-
rounded education," Sheffield
said. "That's what I like: It
opens them up to new worlds
of learning."

Gissy Springs: childhood dream becomes reality


Jim Gissy was raised in
Starke with three brothers and.
, three sisters and is a graduate
of Bradford High School. His
father, Joe, worked. as a
forester for Container

writer far the Telegraph, while
his mother, Mary, worked in

beyond the boundaries of the
Ichetucknee 'Springs State
Park, you'd glide down the
Santa Fe and Suwannee rivers
and ultimately find yourself in
the Gulf of Mexico.
"Then, just outside the
boundaries of the park, I saw a
sign," says Gissy, now 54 and
vice president of sales and
marketing for Orlando-based
Westgate Resorts, the largest
privately owned time-share
company in the world. "It said,
'Riverfront Lots, $30,000.' I
asked my dad, 'Can people
really 'own property 'on a
spring?' He said, 'Yeah, but
that kind of thing's only for
rich people.'
"Well, I decided then and
there that I had to get rich."
Gissy did just that. In 1984,
he joined David Siegel's
budding empire as a time-share
salesman. Using his
astonishing gift of gab and
innate good-old-boy charm, he
quickly became the company's:
top closer. He rose through the
ranks, eventually supervising
some' 2,500 'salespeople and
becoming a trusted confidant

southwest corner of Marion
County.
Gissy Springs, as the site is
now known; is truly one of the
most unusual-many visitors
would say magical-pieces of
private property in the state.
Geologists estimate that
there are at least 720
.freshwater springs in Florida.
But most of them arp. owned
and maintained by the state as
tourist attractions and
recreational areas.
"This was a unique
situation," says Laura Vedral,
a staff biologist with Modica
and Associates, a Clermont-
based environmental
consulting firm that helped
Gissy navigate the permitting
process. "They uncovered a
real gem that.also has great
ecological value.".
Discovering a spring of
significant size is extremely
rare, says Vedral, who told
Gissy that she was "almost
brought to tears" while
kayaking along the run
connecting the Rainbow River
to the newly rejuvenated boil,
where vents on the white-sand
floor gush 72-degree water
from. deep in the Floridian
acquifer. .
"This place. is the single-
most important thing in my life
.other than my family," says
Gissy, who lives.with his wife,
Brenda, in an Italian-style
mansion between lakes Sheen
and 'Tibet Butler near
Windermere. The couple has
three grown children.
"It exceeds every dream I
ever -had.'If there's a fountain
of youth; I've found it here.
I'm telling you, this is like
'holy water."
Gissy is a master at
persuasion and prone to
hyperbole, but .at Gissy
Springs, 'the .loquacious
salesman : isn't selling
anything. He doesn't have to.
His 'enthusiasm for his
property seems as genuine and
well-founded as his grand

Some College
for Kids
courses allow
students the
chance to put
their hands to
work. Here,
Logan Kilby
works on the
toolbox he
made in the
Woodworking
class.


COLLEGE
Continued from Page 1B


fjrst-year participant taking the
half-day session, really didn't
know what to expect prior to
her first day, but soon
discovered the program was
,something she enjoyed.
"It's school, and it's
summer, so I wasn't really sure
:,:how it was going to go,"
Crawford said, "but I think I
might come back next year and
:.do the whole-day (session)."
Crawford, a rising seventh-
grader, said she was looking
forward to the Just Dance class
the most. That has been the
most enjoyable class, she said,
L-but added that Baby-Sitting
.Survival has been enjoyable as
,well as educational.
"I pretty much learned how
,to keep kids occupied to where
tI can keep them all right here
t(by me) where I can see them,"
:she said.
--t Web Page Design was the
class LaFollette was eager to
-take this year and has proven
:to be the one he has enjoyed
the most.
"You think it would be all
:detailed, and you've got to
think really hard and spend
hours and hours and hours-
even at home-to do it, but it's
fairl simple and ver) fun,""'
LaFollette said on the first day
,of the program's second week.
7"I've somewhat already made
mine. It's not published yet.
"When we're done, we get
to play Internet games, so,
'Yay!' It's awesome."
Pet Care has been a pleasant
surprise, LaFollette said. He
wasn't even going to take the
class, but the caligraphy class
he wanted to take was dropped
from the schedule due to the
_.low number of children who
wanted to take it.
"We made dog biscuits,"
LaFollette said. "They tasted
like pizza crust, so, yes, I tried
them."
Edible goodies, but of the
human variety, appealed to
Fares the first two years she
took the program, which is
why she took the cooking class
Life on the Kitchen Trail.
"The first time, I went there
to kind of learn how to cook,"
she said. "The second time, I
went-there for the food."
Fares said the class she has
probably enjoyed the'most this
year is Just Dance, but added
that Advanced Builders has
been a pleasant surprise. She
admitted she thought ,he class
would be boring.
"It's pretty fun because
you've got to put together littlee
wooden things to make
something, and you get to
build a little city," Fares said.
Though there is an emphasis
on fun, that doesn't mean


A Beka Book


Maegan Crawford (foreground) and Andrea McDaniel,
' with Wii controllers in hand, work on their "Just
Dance" moves.


College for Kids courses don't
present challenges. One such
challenge for Fares involved
wandering around the outside
of the Andrews Center with a
plastic spoon in one hand and a
camera in the other as part of
the Make It Snappy
photography class. The goal-
take a random object as given
to her by teacher Brenda
Thornton and compose an
interesting photo with it.
"I take a lot of pictures,"
Fares said, "but taking pictures
of a spoon is kind of hard."
One of the more difficult
things Crawford said she had
done was the Cool Crafts class.
"We made these
masquerade, Margi Gras
maks," Crawford said. "That
was kind of hard. I thought of
it in my head and knew what I
wanted, but i; ws harder to do
it than it was to think of it."
College for Kids projects
may not only be challenging,
but unique as well. Bradford
High School teacher Jim Love,
who teaches Leather I and
Leather II with his wife,
Arlette, said in an interview
last year he enjoyed being able
to teach students skills that
aren't taught in the public
school system, which has
abandoned "experimental"
courses to better meet state
requirements.
"It gives them a chance to
see education as not always
being about books and -tests,
and books and tests,"' Love
said in the July 22, 2010,
edition of the Telegraph-
Times-Monitor. "Education
isn't (like that), but sometimes
that's what the student thinks
of it as being."
So College for Kids students
are having their eyes opened to
such endeavors as stamping,
riveting and dying leather, and
putting their hands to use in
similar classes, such as
Woodworking.
"We made a toolbox in
Woodworking," LaFollette
said. "We actually made -a
toolbox and stained it.
"It's different, but it's still
fun and enjoyable."
A testament to the fun and
enjoyment students have in
College for Kids is not just
demonstrated by the fact
students return to take the6:
program again, such as
LaFollette and Fares, but by
the fact that teens are now
returning to Volunteer in the
program after they are no
longer eligible to enroll as
students.
This year, former College
for Kids students Patricia
Carney, John Wesley
Gillenwaters and David Young
have returned to serve as
volunteers, while Hawthorne

Letters to the Editor


Lawtey needs
more police
protection'
Dear Editor:.
I have just learned that, the
city- of Hampton has -five
police cars protecting their'
city. There are about 500
people living in Hampton so
that means .one' car per
hundred. The part of 301 being
protected is just a watermelon-
seed-spitting-distance long-and
a very narrow strip going west
from the' city. The flock is
really getting fleeced there.
The barrel is really full on 301,
the shooting of the fish is very
easy, and the fish are soon iced
down. I don't know what the
fines are but the city is
probably tickled 'to have that
protection money.
Who would have thought
that a city some distance from
3'01 would be getting funds off
the highly traveled highway. I
know the city extended the city
limits to have police protection
for the convenience, store, but I
scratch mN head thinking, is
this really protection?
I hear that the citizens are
also being stopped in the city
proper. If they are breaking the
law,'that's good. Strangers that
pass through the city should be
on the lookout for the
increased protection.
Just think, if Highland had a
police force, and Maxville
would secede from the city of
Jacksonville and get its police
force, the whole strip of
Highway 301 from-Maxville to
Waldo would be sewn, up, and;.
the cities could live high on the
hog and happily ever after.
: By the way, I saw a Lawtey
police car parked behind the
school fence running radar just
west of the honey hole. It's
hard to see the car, since the
fence is-blocking the view of
(he motorist. Watch out if you
are traveling south..
. Speaking of the city of
Lawtey, at my last council
meeting in January, I made a
.fiotion for Sheriff Gordon
Smith to present the city of
Lawtey a proposal to provide
police protection and services
to the city. This motion passed
and contact with the sheriff
Wvas made. This is now July,
and the sheriff hasn't
responded.
e During the campaign, the
sheriff said he would like for
the cities to consolidate and
receive the services of the
sheriff's office. The city of
1rooker accepted, and the city
of Starke bowed out. Since
Lawtey hasn't heard from the'
sheriff, no one knows'what he
has in mind or where he
stands.
In the Bradford County
Telegraph after Lawtey's
meeting, Sheriff Smith stated
that he and Lawtey Police
Chief Butch Jordan were
.friends. Does this mean that
their friendship is standing in
the way of a 'proposal? I
certainly hope not. You can't


let friendship dictate policy.
The proposal would be to,the
city, not the police chief. The
city council has the power and
leadership to lead the city to
the best of its ability, even the
power to dissolve the police
department. Of course, to
dissolve the police chief, that
would have to be voted on by
the people to amend the
charter. 1 really hope the
sheriff, in his busy position,
takes time to present the
proposal tbtheC'thy."'
-Again, this is. my, .opinion,
and I thank the U.S.
Constitution for this freedom.

Join our local
tea party
Dear Editor:
For the .last 100 years,
progressives have worked to
inflict great harm on our
Constitution while we, the
people, .lived our comfortable
lives. Progressives. have been
busy weakening our founding
framework. God has been
purged from-our schools, and
our morals have been
weakening. Government has
been.' gradually taking more
and more rights away from us
while we slept.
The federal government was
never supposed to be as big
and powerful as it has, become.
It got that way because
progressives knew -they had- to.
make us more dependent on
government, What Obama has.
done is expand and bloat the.
federal government until, like
a leech, it needs more and
more' of your "money.. to
survive. Now we find
ourselves nearly $15 trillion in
debt with nearly $100 million
in unfunded mandates. Do we'
really-think the good fairy will
come along and fix
everything? Not hardly.


Instead, our grandchildren will
spend their lives in debt paying
for a bloated government that
wants to be all things to all
people. That's a blueprint for
disaster. We are better than
this. As Americans, we can
overcome all, but first we must
stop the endless government
expansion.
We must all unite and fight
to reduce our bloated and
corrupt government. We must
not be' silent. We surround
them. We must not. let a
minority of government
progressives destroy our
beloved nation. Many have
given their lives, fighting for
our freedoms, so let -us not
throw that away. We need to
be on the side of God, and He'
will, in return; be on our side.
Our nation was founded with
Christian values. Our founding
documents say freedom of
religion,' not freedom from
religion. Progressives don't
wat. you to know the truth
about. American history
because they want to' radically
,change America It is
important for us all to revisit,
our founding documents and
relearn the history that is our
very foundation.. Without a
foundation, all .will crumble..
We are' at a crossroad. We
must choose the right road to
learn the truth. Do not fall for
the c" -rruption in.
SWashington-it runs deep It's'
our duty to speak.out, Together
we can overcome all. Don't
accept the lies some would tell
you about the tea party. Come
visit our local tea party group
and learn for yourselves that
we are good citizens who
believe in our Constitution and
hold it high.
Do not be misled. Learn
what is true by -reading and
researching for yourself. A
little research in these rough
times will help you begin to
unwind the halin' -of huge
government and its
propaganda arms in the\ news'
media .

KIDS
Continued from Page 3B

teenager Haileigh Beckham is
volunteering as well to gain
community service hours.
Sheffield said it is rewarding
to see teenagers take two
weeks out of their summer to
do something for which they
don't get paid and which
benefits those'who are younger
than them.
"They just really bless my
heart," Sheffield said. "They
actually cause me to try to do
my best to make this program
even better."
It would appear that this
year's program already has
future volunteers in the
making. Crawford, Fares and
LaFollette all said they would
like to work with the program
after they are no longer
eligible to enroll as students.
"We've enjoyed it so much,"
Crawford said. "I still want to
be a part of it."
LaFollette is even thinking
that he'd enjoy doing more
than volunteering.
"What would really be cool
is if after I'm done being an
assistant, I can be a teacher,"
he said.
That's a prospect for down
the road. All three will be able
to enroll as students again, in
2012, and they are looking
forward to it.
"I can't wait 'til next year,"
Fares said.

Muck and slime had to be removed to reveal the clear, blue water of the spring
purchased by Jim Gissy for $2.1 million.

SPRINGS
Continued from Page 2B



filmmaker-turned-Realtor
named Grant Austin Waldman.
"Grant wanted to show me
some property on the
Withlacoochee," recalls Gissy.
"We were in his office, and I
said, 'Don't bother-that's
brown, dark water.' I wanted
something on the Rainbow
giver."
Waldman, who met Gissy
while working as associate
producer of Held for Ransom,
a low-budget Dennis Hopper
vehicle filmed in part on
.Westgate property, mentioned
that he had heard rumors of a
forgotten spring on private
property near the river. Gissy
was intrigued.
"It's like that music from
'The Twilight Zone' went off
in my head," he says. "I
wondered if this could be what
I'd been looking for since I
was a kid."
Waldman, along with
Gissy's brother Michael and
nephew Kyle Cahoon, decided
to find out if the mysterious
spring really existed. The Los
Angeles native, who would
eventually abandon his real-
estate career to act as caretaker
of Gissy .Springs, led the
makeshift expedition along the
Rainbow River.
They eventually spotted
what appeared to be a, small
tributary. obscured beneath a
downed tree. Following its
length on foot, they hacked
their way through 2,100 feet of
dense vegetation before
stumbling upon a body of
water choked by sediment and
brush. -
"We thought it was a swamp
at first," says Waldman. "We
had to lift and move things
over, but we saw. this
translucent water beneath."
They called Gissy, who told
Waldman to locate the owner
and to make an offer. The
asking price was $5 million.
Gissy offered $2.1 million
cash and within days had a
contract to buy 108 isolated
acres he had never even
visited. It wasn't his largest
real-estate transaction, but it
would prove to be his most
gratifying.
"The next week, I looked at
the. property," Gissy says. "I
had a 120-day cancellation
clause, so I knew I could get
out of it if I had to.".
But he found that the spring,
though it was almost entirely
covered by several feet of
odorous slime, appeared
salvageable, and the primordial
setting exerted a powerful,
almost spiritual allure to him.
The deal was done, and the
dream was realized-but not
without a huge investment of
time, effort and money.
Following an arduous
permitting process that
involved both the Department
of Environmental Protection
and the Army Corps of
Engineers, Gissy hired crews
to haul and pump 1,500 yards
of sediment out of the woods
and into a pit. The work,
supervised by Gissy's brother
Donald revealed stunningly
clear, azure blue water with a
brilliant white-sand bottom.
In the muck, exoskeletons of
sea creatures were abundant,
dating from the days when the
state was covered by shallow
seawater.


"When you think about it,
the whole history of the world
. is in that pit," says Gissy.
That view was soon
reinforced when Donald came
across the massive skull of a
mastodon beneath about 15
feet of goo. Other bones were
discovered nearby, and
scientists from the University
of Florida identified them as
belonging to the huge, tusked
mammal, thought to have
become extinct about 15,000
years ago.
Today, Gissy' Springs is a
vision of shimmering water
where turtles and small fish
contentedly swim, Surrounded
by wooden decks' and
boardwalks with built-in
benches. A screened pavilion
provides storage' and shelter.
Beyond the watery haven are
dense woods where black
panthers, bobcats and boars
have been spotted.
On a recent sweltering mid-
summer weekend, Gissy
hosted about a dozen. friends
and family, as well .as a
handful of people that he


seemed not to know but
nonetheless welcomed
heartily. The affable owner
was hard-pressed to recall the
last time he spent any
significant time alone at his
remarkable getaway.
"My parents recently moved
:to a home about 10 miles from
here," Gissy says. "So
sometimes after I visit them,
I'll stop by and stay a little
while, but I love having family
and friends over. On Memorial
.Day, I had about 75 people
here. Everybody had a great
time."
He does recall a few
moments of solitude, courtesy
of the watery haven he worked
so hard to restore..
"When I swim to the bottom
of Gissy' Springs and look at
the pristine water coming out
of the blue hole, I feel like I'm
looking at the umbilical cord
of God. The best words I can
use to describe the feeling you
get after swimming in these
waters is "'spiritual healing.'
You can feel it in your mind,
your body and your soul."
