According to LHMS, Brackrttt
in cnmsidcred a cornmcrstone of
LHBMS sith more than 30 ,car,
with the s oh l teaching physical
education.
-BnHrkctt has had a positjpe
impact on many students oscr

as their academic achievement.
SOeir the last scseral years.

Teacher of the Year Betty Brackett (left) and School-Related Ernployee of the Year Vick Wilson (right).


I hi s is hy Brackctt was chosen
to be the teacher of the ycar for
2011-2012.
"What has changed in the 30
scars since I began teaching?...
The enjoy ment students got from
playing games and being active.,"
said Brackett. "Thirty years ago,
students enjoyed playing games
and tried as hard as they could
to be successful, whether they
liked what we were doing or not.
Limited physical activity has
physically handicapped many
children in this generation. We
have a large number of students,


not just a fwc. who can't kip. of \our life. Converselty. hen


hop. jump. throw and catch. ctc.
Our bNKdies are made to mose.
not be sedentary.
"Other than your salation, I
don't think there is anything more
important than your health. You
get one body for your whole life,
you must take care of it. Students
today think that sweating and
breathing hard is a bad thing.
If I could change one thing for
a student, I would instill self
discipline. Lack of discipline in
the small things or in one area of
your life carries over to all areas


you are disciplined, that as %well
carries over to all areas of sour
life and'allows you to persevere,
grow as a person and reach your
goals," she said.
- Wilson was chosen as the
-'school-related employee of the
year. According to LBMS staff
members, Wilson has worn many
"hats" during the 14 years she has
been employed by Union County
schools.
Wilson's duties have included:
reading lab assistant, library
aide, bookkeeper, and currently


administrative secretary. Wilson
considers the faculty and students
a part of her family and looks
forward to seeing them ever
day. Wilson's organizational
skills help keep the front office at
LBMS running smoothly.
A long time resident of Union
County, Wilson graduated from
Union County High School.
As a mother of three and a
grandmother of three, Wilson
said she enjoys spending time
with her family.

destroyed by De Gourges, in
an effort to Christianize the
natives.
Menendez sought to learn
more about the interior, and
armed with knowledge given
to the Spanish by the Native
Americans at St. Augustine,
parties of explorers made their
way into the interior, braving
dense, swampy wilderness and
attack by unfriendly Native
Americans. The natives were
generally vicious in their
attacks since the Spanish had
killed and tortured many of
their fellow Native Americans
in forcing them to leave
land that had been claimed
by Spain. Indians from the
interior were captured and
returned to St. Augustine and
used essentially as slave labor
to help build fortifications.
The exploration parties
made their way west to a
location near Olustee Creek
which is in what is now,
known as Union County. They
built living quarters there. It
is believed that what is now
known as Providence was on


the direct path taken by the
Spanish explorers who won
their way to Pensacola and
settled there.
Legend says that one party
of these settlers had a large
treasure chest with them. When
they were attacked by Indians,
the legend claims the box was
thrown into the Suwannee
River near Providence. Four
miles from the settlement of
Providence, Ft. Call was built
to provide protection for the
Spanish settlers of the area.
Ft. Ward, located a few miles
southeast of Ft. Call, was also
built about this time.
Providence continued as
a settlement long after the
Spanish had turned Florida
over to English control. Years
later, Providence Village
became the first county
seat of the land which now
includes Columbia, Bradford
and Union counties. Col. W.T.
Weeks served as clerk of the
court while the county seat
was located in Providence.
In early days, mail for the
village was delivered by


horseback from Starke-a
grueling 30 miles through
the wilderness. John D.
Harden was one of the first
mail carriers who had to find
solid ground through swamps
and safe passage over rivers
and streams often swollen
by rainfall. Animal or Indian
attack was always a possibility,
as was robbery.
Schools were unheard of
for many years and education
was available only through
private lessons. One teacher in
these early days who was well
respected was Miss Moore
from South Carolina. She was
employed by the Summerall
family and taught children
from other families in the
Summerall home. In addition
to the reading, writing and
arithmetic offered. Miss
Moore also taught music.
Few churches existed in
the early days of Providence.
but circuit-riding preachers
served New Zion, Ft. Call and

Prove idence Village.
The % village had drug stores,
blacksmith shops, carpenters
and general mercantile stores
which did a good business
with people who traveled for
miles over rough roads from
Lake Butler. High Springs and
Lake City in the days before
those towns had outgrown
Providence.
The Providence area is still
known as rich farmland and
large cotton plantations once
existed there. A number of
'cotton gins were also located
in the area. In the early days
of settlement in this area,
Providence-as the oldest and
most established village-had
a reputation for being the
most socially advanced area
and ladies and gentlemen
from other settlements felt
themselves to be socially
advanced if they had made
an entry onto the Providence
social scene.


Pioneer settlers of the
village included Ward.
WVilkerson, Weeks, Gay,
Odom, Newsome, Fralick.
Talor, Valentine, Bielling.
Harden. Summers, Smith,
Shallar. Clyah, O'Steen and
Summerall.
Gen. Charles Pelot
Summerall was one of the
most famous citizens of
the village. He assumed
command of the U.S. Army
when Gen. John J. Pershing
retired and was made chief of
staff until he, in turn, retired
around 1934. Summerall then
served as president of the
Citadel in Charleston, S.C.,
and remained at that post until
his death.
Providence never really
grew beyond village status,
although in its early days it
was a very important village.
Today, the area serves largely
as a bedroom community for
Lake City and Gainesville,
with residents being far
more numerous than the
small business district would
indicate.

Are There Many Paths to God?
As we attempt to do with every other Bible question let us look
and see what the Bible says. In John 14:6, "Jesus said to him, 'I
am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father
except through Me." Jesus says He is the way and there are not
multiple ways because anyone who does not go through Jesus
will not make it to the Father. In addition throughout the book
of Acts we constantly find reference to "the Way" (Acts 9:2;
22:4; 24:14). The Bible does not speak of people going to God
on different paths but on the Way. Everyone who was going to
the Father was going on the same path. In Matthew 7:13-14 we
are told, "Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads
to life, and there are few who find it." The way that leads to life
is a narrow way and is not inclusive of many different paths.
Let us realize there is only one way to God and seek to follow it.

remebered how busy the
.calcrship was at that time and
how it had more trucks than
any other Ford dealer he knew
of.
"Trhat'si one of the inorwe

Murray said. "We stock

Murray Ford Superstore owner Dale Murray (right) is pictured with General Manager Amir Asadl. who has worked
with Murray for 18 years. The two men followed the same career paths, starting out In automotive sales, and even
have the same number of children. Well, almost. Asadi and his wife are expecting their third.

came to buying vehicles.
Murray said when he bought
the store, he discovered it had
a reputation for not having
much of a selection and not
offering fair prices. .--
"When we first !iught the
store, the bulk of our
community was leaving here to
go buy their vehicles

Ford statistics, 98 percent of
local Ford owners are doing

"On top of that, 42 percent

Murray said.

vehicles are ony two parts of
the equation, however. Murray
said he emphasizes offering
customers a comfortable
atmosphere and making the
process of buying a vehicle as
easy as possible. If customers
at his dealership are quoted a
price, they are not pressured
into buying the vehicle in
question at that price the same
day. The price quoted-
barring any changes in Ford
incentives- is good for
whenever the customer is
ready to purchase the vehicle.
Also, the process of buying a
vehicle is streamlined so that it
is not 'a three- or four-hour
ordeal, Murray said. The goal
is to get customers in and out
as quickly as possible so as not
to interfere with their busy
schedules.
"We all do pay the same
thing for the cars," Murray
said of Ford dealerships. "The
major difference is how you're
treated as a consumer at each
of these different facilities.
Our goal and target is to make
sure we treat each customer as
if they were an honored guest
in our home."
Home, for Murray, has been
Florida for most of his life. He
I was actually born in Provo,
Utah, but moved to Florida at
the age of 3 because of his
father's job. He lived in
Jacksonville before moving to
St. Augustine.
Murray was a member of
Nease High School's first
graduating class in 1984 and
played collegiate football as a
defensive end until sustaining
an injury. He first went to
Rick's College in Rexburg,
Idaho, before transferring to
Valdosta College in Georgia.
After college, Murray got a
sales job with Coggin Suzuki,
but did not think of having a
long-term career in the auto
industry.
"At that, point, I thought I
was just going to get in. get a
little experience and go find
something I really wanted to
do," Murray said.
That job with Coggin.
:houeh. lasted from 1987 until


1999. Murray discovered the
job was good for someone who
enjoys meeting people-as he
does-and who wants a job
that is anything but routine.
"I just enjoyed the fact you
met new people each and
every day," Murray said.
"Every set of circumstances in
which you dealt with people
was different. It was never a
boring situation."
Murray worked in sales until
1994 before working in
multiple management positions
during his remaining time at
Coggin and with the Scott-
McRae Group. He began
working with Scott-McRae in
April 1999.
"I ended up as a part owner
and president with a couple of
their different stores," Murray
said. "I opened a new facility
for them, which was Duval
Mazda in Jacksonville. We
bought a store, which was
Duval Mazda of Gainesville,
and turned it around. I was the
one who went in and turned it
around for them back in 2004.
"We won the President's
Award with Mazda in 2X)5."
Murray said it's personally
fulfilling to take a store that
was struggling and turn it
around-not just in terms of
sales but also in terms of
community impact. It was Tip
Graham who impressed upon
Murray the importance of a
dealership becoming a part of
the community it was located
in.
"He really kind of made me
understand the business is
bigger-much bigger- than
selling cars," Murray said. "He
was a real advocate of
community support,
involvement and trying to
make a difference in people's
lives."
To that end. Murray is
supportive of the community
that surrounds the Starke
dealership. In light of budget
cuts. he feels it is especially
important to support the local
schools.
"Our schools could not get
b, without community support
and community involvement."


Murray said.
Being a I1 .od ..Liiml inits,
partner goes a liIni way in
helping a business repair its
reputation. Murray said he was
concerned about overcoming
the Starke store's previous
reputation when he bought it,
but now the store will be
recognized as the North
Florida Region;l Chamber of
Commerce's Large Business
of the Year at the chamber's
upcoming annual banquet.
"We had a little job in front
of us (in Starke)," Murray said,
"but it didn't take long once
we started selling a few cars
here and there, making friends
with the local community and
showing that we were going to
support the community. Things
just started to blossom for us."
When he's not busy with the
dealership, Murray likes to
spend time with his family-
wife, Dana, and children
Savannah, 13, Austin, I1, and
Dallas, 8. He also enjoys
hunting and rc.irnp cars on dirt
tracks, but those hobbies don't
take away from family time.
"I involve my family in both
of them." Murray said.
In essence. Muirr,) has two
families as he is close to his
empl,..\e.. lie knows what's
going on in their lives, knows
their children, etc. Mlin, of
them have worked with
Murray for 15 years or more.
inLludinp General M.iaiicr
Amir Asadi, who has worked
with Murray for 18 years.
Murray said a lot of his
employees are his friends, and
he strives to take care of all of
them and ensure they are
happy.
"If they're happy, then I
know at the end of the day the
customers are i.'inv to be
rceal', happK." Murray said.
Buying the. Ford dealership
in Starke has made Mlurr;,.
happy. but he does have one
regret.
"I look back. and the ',n!;.
thing I say is. "I wish I
would've (b.h ,u-hi it earlier.' I

he said.

Starting off a new year: a look at Telegraph history


A new year is usually
brought in with a "bang," but
the tart of the year may or
may not be so eventful in the
first Bradford County
Telegraph issues of the year.
It's a time of year when
people are taking vacatiuns
and enoying the holidays, so
things can be pretty quiet
around the county, but that
first January issue of the
Telegraph has featured some
interesting stories, such as the
impact on the community of
the US. entering World War II
or a ruptured fuel line sending
oil into Alligator Creek
In honor of the new 2012
*year, here is a look at some of
the Telegraph stories and items
of interest in first-year issues:

Jan. 1, 1892: a quiet
Christmas, tramps, a
fatty chicken and other
local affairs
The local affairs column
contained the following items:
I. "The Telegraph did not
miss an issue the entire last
year, and we start out next year
with the same intention."
2. "Mr. Ellis has his steam
horse at work hauling logs to
bis mill. It is a novelty and is
attracting great attention."
3. "The young ladies will
give a leap year ball tonight at
the armory. They will no doubt
(how the boys a trick or two."
4. "Mrs. F.M. Wiley reports
killing a chicken Christmas
day that had 2 inches of fat on
Its back. That was a good one
for Christmas."


5 -Christmas was a venr
pleasant day. There was no
disturbance of any kind on that
day in Starke."
6 "Horseback riding is once
again becoming popular with
the ladies There is no more
healthful exercise."
7. "The town council should
pass a law to arrest ever)
tramp who comes to town and
put them to work on the public
streets. There is no greater
nuisance than a tramp."
In an item of interest from
Lawtec, it was reported that,
"Mr Grigsley has purchased a
driving outfit. The query is.
how is he going to favor his
young lady friends with a ride
in a single-seated sulky?"

Jan. 1, 1932: Fire,
'home-brew' disposal,
cucumbers, a new soda
fountain and boxing
"Fire completely
destroyed the old A.H. Green
farm home northwest of Starke
early Monday night. The fire
was discovered shortly after it
started, but means of fighting
the flames were lacking, and
the building was completely
destroyed."
"Tuesday night, 75
growers met in the courthouse
at Starke and agreed toplant
150 acres of cucumbers for
Manhattan Produce
Company."
"Canova Pharmacy
completed the installation of a
modern, new fountain
Monday, and the owners of


this popular drug store habe
received many compliments on
the fixture "
"Sheriff Epperson and
deputies poured out a small
quantity of home brew
Monday the storm seer
near the courthouse being
forced to cary off the highly
charged mineral water The
only excitement was caused bf
the explosion of one of the
boles when the cap was being
pried off by the sheriff "
Tommy 'Kid' Beck of
Lawtey, better known as 'the
Lawtey Wildcat.' and 'Kid'
Baisden of Valdosta. Ga.. will
headline the City Club's
weekly boxing show next
Monday night in Gainesville.
They are scheduled to fight 10
rounds, and it will be the first
time the pair have met.
"Baisden, one of the
cleverest of Georgia boxers,
will find in Beck a hard-
hitting, willing mixer, who will
give him plenty of real action."


Jan. 2, 1942: the impact
of war, a busy post
office and tree-lighting
award winners
"Dr. M.B. Herlong,
chairman of the Division of
Health and Housing in the
Bradford County Defense
Council, has appointed AJ.
Thomas as head of the
ambulance corps, to be ready
for any emergency in the
present war. Dr. Herlong and
Mr. Thomas are rapidly getting
their organization perfected,

"Mrs Mary Lee Sdlermail
and Mrs. George Inman will be

team. Nurses for the
ambulance corps are needed.
Dr. Herlong stated-graduate

out of practice. married or
otherwise."
"Starke will rehearse for
an air raid next Monday night.
"The, first-and probably
only--bcal practice blackout
will begin at 9 and last for 15
minutes.
S"This is how you'll know to
-douse your lights in your
business or residence-the first
siren at the municipal light and
water plant will sound for 45
seconds, followed by F5
seconds of silence. This signal
will be repeated over a period
of five minutes.
"The all-clear signal will be
five short blasts about five
seconds each. Then you can
turn your lights back on
again."
The story went on to issue
warnings to those who refused
to participate or those who saw
the blackout as an opportunity.
"Anyone found taking
advantage of the blacked-out


trees to engage in thie er or
other nefanous practices will
be punished to the fullest
extent of the law
-Whil it is expected that
there ill be 100-percent
ctvoperaton on the pan of the
people. if -our lights do not go
off promptly after the warning
signal is given, do not be
surprised if someone gives a
oud knock on )our door and
demands that lights be turned
off"
"Although Christmas
business was still far ahead of
that experienced in the pre-
Blanding era, Starke merchants
all agree that it was adversely
affected by the recent
declaration of war and the
consequent restrictions placed
on soldiers coming to town.
Whereas Call Street was a
seething mass of khaki during
the Christmas shopping period
in 1940, there was only a
liberal smattering of soldiers
among the throngs of shoppers
this season.
"One drug store reported
that sales had dropped 25
percent since the declaration of
war, and figures at another
showed that Christmas week
sales were off one-fourth from
the same week last year."
"Without referring to
official figures, Postmaster
Fred F. Stump stated
Wednesday that last month
was the best month in the
history of the Starke Post
Office. Business in December
1941 was at least 25 percent
greater than was December
1940 and at least 1.000 percent


better than the same period in
1939. he said.
"During the Christmas, .~'sh.
seen additional clerks were
employed in the Starke office.
The\ were-Bill Long. Evere
McKinne.. Hugh Ingram.
Lester Sponholtz and Mrs. Ida
Lula Davis of Starke. and L.C.
Smith of Graham."
S"Pnrze winners in the
annual outdoor Christmas tree-
lighting contest, sponsored b%
the Woman's Club. the Rotan
Club and the American
Legion, were announced
yesterday as follows-first.
Mrs. C.A. Knight. $5. and
second, Mrs. AZ. Adkins, S3.
"Five prizes of SI each were
awarded to the following-
Mrs. R.F. Demorest, Mrs. C.H.
Nasworth), Mrs. WA. Stern.
Mrs. A.O. Andreu and Mrs.
Ralph Alvarez.
"Two prizes of SI each for
entrance decorations were
awarded to Mrs. R.A. Green
and Mrs. K.G. Duncan."
The story also noted that the
city of Starke. the Woman's
Club and Dr. M.B. Herlong
received honorable mention
and commendation for
"beautiful and spectacular
lighting effects."

Editorial/Opinion

TELEGAPH, TIMES & MoNITOR THURSDAY, JAN. 5, 2012 PAGE 4B




2012 is here, like it or not


I he past year was not kind to residents
of the tri-counts area. The cconom. kicked
our butts and continues to do so Jobs are
impossible to find for unskilled. untrained
people. Short-term turnaround is not on the
horizon.
What are our choices' If sou are un-
trained, get trained. We hase wonderful
assets in Santa Fe College and the Brad-
ford-Union Area Career Technical ('enter.
Enrollment andjob counseling are available
at both campuses. If you need remediation
(help in math, science, etc.), both schools
have it available. Please be aware age is not
a handicap. Both young and older students
are trainable for a variety of jobs.
Economic development becomes essen-
tial. Always in the past, private enterprise
was responsible for most of the economic
development. Howe'.er, government has
been a partner in this effort for years. The
state of Florida taxes dog :..7i horse racing
tracks and shares the proceeds from that
tax with each county in the state. The funds
are earmarked specifically for economic
development.
I can't see much evidence of the results
from these funds in Bradford or Union
counties. Gov. Rick Scott made a campaign
promise of creating jobs. Why wouldn't it
be feasible for the commissioners in our


lI al counties to have a goal of economic
development?
It appears to me that public officials are
out of touch with the people who voted for
them Their primary function is to keep the
tax rolls high, i.e. cheat taxpayers by charg-
ing a higher assessment than the market
dictates.
There are 67 counties in this state that
must face the same circumstances and have
done it well-Clay County, for example.
The department of revenue does not set the
taxable values in Bradford or Union coun-
ties. The county property appraiser does-
and the commissioners approve it. If any-
one tells you different, they are LYING.
So, are county and city governments go-
ing to be part of the answer or part of es-
calating the crises being faced by residents
and taxpayers?
This year, 2012, would be a good time
to have an evaluation of how to help create
jobs in our area. Why not have a meeting
and see if it would be possible to use race-
track funds to hire someone who would
find a way to create jobs that would be suit-
able for our taxpayers?
Florida's economy will improve over
time. The question is, will the tri-county
area be a part of it?

Bradford's

Chipoletti to

coach in
Border Wars

all-star game

The all-star game will
feature players from
Bradford, Keystone and
Union County
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News Sports Editor
Bradford High School head
football coach Derek
Chipoletti will serne as one of
the head coaches in the third
annual Florida/Georgia Border
Wars High School All-Star
Football Game, which will be
played Saturday, Jan. 21, at
Valdosta (Ga.) High School.
"It's an honor to be asked to
do it." Chipoletti said.
Chipoletti coached as an
assistant in the first game in
2010, when Columbia County
head coach Craig Howard-
who was then the head coach
at Nease-was the Florida
team's head coach. He met
former Gainesville head coach
Ryan Smith at the game and
became good friends with him.
Smith was Team Florida's
head coach last year and asked
Chipoletti to again serve as an
assistant.
The game organizer asked
Chipoletti after last year's
game to be Florida's head
coach this year.
"I was kind of surprised. I'm
not the most seasoned guy,"
Chipoletti said, referring to the
fact he had only two years of
head coaching experience at


that Lme
Chipoletti will be
surrounded b% some familiar
fIa,-s as his staff will be made
up of such coaches as Bradford
offense coordinator Steven
Renolds. who will coach the
offensive line. and Baker
Count\ head coach R an
Sulkow ski.
Jeff Nettles, a Bradford High
graduate who is the offensive
-oordinator at Clay High
School, will also be part of the
staff Nettles has coached
alongside Chipoletti in the
past
-I always want to provide
opportunities, if I can. to
people I've coached with,"
Chipoletti said.
Fellow coaches won't be the
only familiar faces as
Chipoletti's team will consist
of five Bradford players and a
total of four players from
neighbor rivals Keystone
Heights and Union County.
Chipoletti said the game,
hopefully, will provide an
opportunity for those players
to get college scholarships.
"This game's kind of for
those under-the-radar
sleepers," Chipoletti said.
Bradford will be represented
by linebackers Keith Baker
and Dakota Rice, defensive
back Devin Paulk, running
back Dexter Clayton and wide
receiver Brandon Thomas,
while Union will be
represented by linebacker
Kendall Wright. Keystone
players participating will be
quarterback Evan Harvey,
running back Bruce Kirksey
and wide receiver Chase
Julius.
The teams will have one
week of practices leading up to
the game, with the Florida
team practicing at Buchholz
High School in Gainesville.

"Starke s one of six
Florida towns that have been
given an 'A' priority rating for
construction of hospital
facilities under the Federal
Hospital Survey and
Construction Act."
A survey by the Florida
State Improvement
Commission revealed a need
for a 50-bed hospital in Starke.
"Bradford County, the
survey states, would be
eligible for a grant of 65
percent of total funds
necessary to build and equip a
hospital here."
The story estimated the cost
at $13000-$17,000 per bed.
The other Florida cities that
received a top-priority rating
for construction of hospital
facilities were Green Cove
Springs, Palatka, Chiefland,
Perry and Sanford.

Jan. 4, 1962: Cpld
temps, locals excel in
boat race, old fire
hoses, 301 construction
and business as usual in
Lawtey
S"Starke's I1-degree low
recorded Saturday morning,
Dec. 30, by a Frost Warning
Service thermometer on' the
Bradford County Hospital
grounds, was the coldest in the
area and at least 2 degrees
lower than the 13- and 14-
degree lows recorded here
during the so-called big freezes
of the 1890s.
"After a record-breaking
warm fall, winter got a belated
start just before Christmas and
has held a frigid grip on the
area for the past two weeks.
The first below-average
freezing temperature was
recorded at the weather station
here on Dec. 22-a low of
305 degrees."
The story reported that low
temperatures of 25.4, 205 and
31.5 degrees were recorded
Dec. 25-27.
"Two Starke boat racers-
15-year-old Tom Moore and
David Fenton, both driving for
Tom's father, Jimmy Moore-
took most of the honors at the
Gator Bowl Marathon
outboard races Sunday, Dec.
31. by winning five of the 11
classes.
"Young Tom also provided
the sports thrill of the rough
and windy afternoon when the
wind taught his 14-foot Sun
Sports Special and set it up on


end The boat nghted itself
without turning over. however.

"Starke's cit, council

Edwards to call for bids on
2,000 feet of fire hose, wh ch
will replace lines that are 20
years old."
Council member Carl Lamar
Johns sad 20 years had to be
the life expectancy of a hose,
while R.C. "Red" Buford.
Starke fire chief, said his
department is without a
reliable hose after each call if
the "good" hose gets wet.
"Hose which has been used
must be allowed to dry before
srung back on the truck,
(Buford) said, if it is to last
long "
"It might have been a
holiday, but the Lawtey city
council held its regular
meeting at the regular time,
New Year's night or not.
"In a brief, one-hour session,
newly elected officials were
sworn in, and Dave Shuford
was reelected chairman for the
new year. Shuford said he
would wait several days before
making committee
appointments.
"H.C. Kelly was the only
new face on the council, with
all other officials starting new
terms being reelected
incumbents, including Mayor
C.R. Shuford and Marshal
Sumter Harley."
"According to a detailed
estimate by city of Starke
engineers B.M. Tannaer and
Associates of Melbourne, it
will cost $57,025 to install
sewer and water lines under
US. 301 South, a project the
city must carry out while the
road is under construction."
US. 301 was in the process
of becoming a four-lane
highway.

Jan. 6, 1972: a decision
to not pay for riot
control and remodeling,
construction within
school system
"Reversing its position of
paying the Starke Police
Department for riot duty in last
spring's racial disturbances at
Bradford High, the school
baord voted unanimously
Tuesday not to pay the bill.
""The new decision is based
on a legal opinion rendered to
the school board by the sate
Department of Education's
legal branch in Tallahassee.
The opinion was requested by
Superintendent Tom Casey,
who wrote for it after the
school board had finally
approved payment of the bill
last Nov. 2.
"Casey said Tuesday he was
very doubtful that the school
board had authority to pay a
bill for police protection."
The legal opinion provided
to the school board by Herbert
D. Sikes stated: "This office is
of the opinion that the school
board of Bradford County
cannot expend funds for the
purpose of reimbursing the city
of Starke for police protection
during the recent; racial
disturbance at Bradford High
School. Generally speaking, as
you are well aware, public
funds can only be expended
under statutory authority."
Sikes' statement also read:
"In the event of a racial
disturbance in a downtown
area of any city, I do not
believe that anyone would
seriously contend that the
merchants, local churches or


other u ncn of pri-xcr.

demolition of three classroom

are being torn down to make
room for the second phase of
construction of a new high
school.
"The cSO building now
houses the entire
administrative staff of the
school system, including
recently remodeled offices for
Casey, his secretary. his office
staff and for purchasing agent
P.T. Nolin."

Jan. 7, 1982:
construction permits
buck national trend and
an end to courthouse
space dispute
"Apparently unaffected by
the national slump in building,
Bradford County racked up
new construction permits
totaling $7,086,896 in 1981,
topping 1980's total by
$357,889.
"Making a quick recovery
from fall's below-average
months of September, October
and November, permits in
December totaled $527,700-
almost equal to the monthly
average of $590,575 in 1981.
"July was top month for
construction with permits
totaling $874,100."
The data in the story did not
include permits issued by the
city of Starke.
"Reluctantly, Bradford
County commissioners agreed
Monday to negotiate with the
Eighth Judicial Circuit's chief
judge in an attempt to end the
three-year courthouse space
dispute.
"Commissioners don't want
to pay the legal fees incurred
by Judge Theron Yawn in
contesting who controls space
in the courthouse's second-
floor legal complex-the
county or "the t .coiirt-but,
reluctant to spend moree' tax"
dollars in a dispute with the
court system, the commission
authorized county attorney
Dudley Hardy to offer $3300
in legal fees for Judge Yawn.
"By a 3-2 vote, the
commission agreed after
discussing several alternatives
to accept the compromise
agreement Hardy brought after
talking to Chief Judge
Benjamin Tench.
"Hardy said Judge Tench
has a general agreement with
the other circuit judges to give
the county the large grand jury
room and a small, adjacent
witness room. It would give
enough space to house the
assistant state attorney's staff
here, consisting of three
attorneys, two secretaries and
an investigator."
Hardy told commissioners
that in return, the county
would be required to forgive
its claim on the county judge's
room and to pay Judge Yawn's
attorney fees.

but officials said city workers
and hazardous waste clean-up
crews have contained the spill

The city, with assistance
from O.H. Materials Company
out of Clermont. orchestrated a
clean-up plan under the
direction of the Department of
Environmental Regulation.
-(City Operations Manager
Bill) Weldon said city workers
placed sand in the streets and
gutters to stop the flow of oil.
The sand and oil mixture will
be collected, separated and
treated, he said."
O.H. Materials crews placed
oil-retention booms-rings of
cotton absorption pads-along
Alligator Creek leading to
Lake Rowell. Welson said
booms were also placed on
Call, Laura and Epperson
streets, U.S. 301 and S.R. 100.
"A large accumulation of oil
has been trapped at the
intersection of Alligator Creek
and Highway 100 and in a
creek washout area at the end
of Call Street, Weldon said. He
said the oil accumulations
diminish in the creek as it
approaches Lake Rowell.
"Thursday, Weldon said no
oil has been found in the boom
at Lake Rowell. He added that
DER officials are satisfied
with the progress of the clean-
up."
"An unusually dry fall has
prompted local water

to ask Bradford Count\
residents to conserve water.

went on to sa: "Although

urging residents to conserve
water. thec also sa\ rainfall

months."


Jan. 3, 2002: time to
focus on the FCAT
One of the front-page
stories of this issue involved
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, which is
better known as the FCAT.
Fourth-, eighth- and 10'-
graders would be taking the
writing portion of the test on
Feb. 12, while students in
grades 3-10 would take the
reading and math portions in
March.
"Since the FCAT is so vert
important to both students and
the school system in general.
Bradford administrators and
teachers are working to
generate enthusiasm-both in
the school system and in the
community-in relation to this
test.
"For example, Eugenia
Whitehead, curriculum
supervisor for the school
system, said that during the
time the fourth-, eighth and
10'"-graders are taking the
FCAT on Feb. 12, every
school child in the county will
be doing a writing assignment,
which is similar to the test.
These extra assignments will
not be sent to the company
which is under contract to
grade the state test, but they
will be graded using the same
guidelines as those used in
grading the official test."
