Fire destroys LB family's home


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

A family of four is left with
barely any belongings after a fire
destroyed more then half of their
residence on Southwest First
Terrace. *
According to City Fire Chief
Mike Banks, the fire began
around 7 p.m. on the evening of
Feb. 26, in an addition built onto


the house.
The cause of the fire was
a small wood-burning stove
located in the corner of the
room. The flames traveled up
the walls, through the ceiling and
throughout more than half of the
residence. The small portion of
the house not affected by flames
was badly damaged by smoke.
Homeowners Stephanie
Torres and. Eliseo Torres along


with their daughter Nathaly
and son Emmanuel, were in the
home when the fire took place.
According to Stephanie Torres,
her husband heard a clicking in
the ceiling and went outside to
check on the noise. The fire was
described as a ball of swirling
flames above the house.
The husband called into the

getting makeover


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor


. Construction began this week
on the North end of Eighth
Avenue between S.R. 100 and
S.R. 238A. ,
Theconstruction was scheduled
to begin on Feb. 27, but was
delayed due to weather. The road
will be repaved with a six-inch
bed of limerock, followed by a
cover of 1.5 inches of pavement.
Work will -also be done to
improve the drainage.The project
is being done by Tony Williams
of Andersoh Construction and
will cost $147,364, which will be
covered by a Florida Department
of Transportation grant approved
for the project.


The original plan was to
complete the entire section of
Eighth Avene between S.R. 238A
and S.R 121, however the bid
for the entire job was $215,000,
which was over the amount the
Board of County Commissioners
had to work with.
The board requested that
the city commission assist in
covering the south end of the
project, however the city was
unable to agree to the request.
It was decided at a recent board
meeting to only do the north end
.of the section so that it could be
completed correctly, leaving the
south end work to be done when
funds are available.
The project is expected to last
45 days or less.


City gets benefit of

unclaimed property


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

The Keane Corporation pulled
through for the city as promised,
delivering a check for unclaimed
property: $4,000 was retrieved
on the city's behalf with a payout
of $3,200 after the corporation's
fees were deducted.
. The Keane Corporation
specializes in locating owners,
heirs and/or beneficiaries of
unclaimed assets.
The collection process began
in November of last year, when
a resolution was made-at a city
council meeting on the services
being offered. City hall was
contacted via mail, stating that
there was in excess of $4,000
worth of unclaimed property
belonging to the city.
The Keane Corporation stated
in the letter that they could do all
the needed paperwork and would
retrieve the property for the city


at the cost of 20 percent. The
city researched all aspects of the
claim but could not identify what
the claim was in reference to.
As a resolution, the city agreed
to allow the Keane Corporation
to retrieve this claim. However,
the 20 percent was to be taken out
of the claim rather than to be paid
by ,the city. This would protect
the city from losing any funds in
the event that it was a fraudulent
claim. The city agreed to allow
the collection and specified that
there would be a limit of 90 days
for the services to be completed.

At the city council meeting
held on Feb. 13, City Manager
David Mecusker gave an update
on the Keane Corporation.
Mecusker said that the city had
received the funds just as the
Keane Corporation had promised
and that the collection process
being provided by the company
was compete.


Alachua surcharge

waiver to expire


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

On March 1, Alachua County
will begin paying a $2.35 per ton
surcharge on the waste it deliv-
ers to the New River Regional
Landfill.
After an 18-month postpone-
ment of the surcharge, board
members of the New River Solid
Waste Association are ready to
begin collecting the additional
fees as they believe Alachua
County hasn't made enough
progress toward control of its
waste stream.
The landfill and Alachua
County have both suffered the fi-
nancial consequences of a hauler
in Alachua County bypassing the
county's transfer station. Both
governments lost tipping fee rev-
enue when waste was diverted.
The landfill's losses totaled more
than $1 million.
Sally Palmi from Alachua
County Public Works said, the
postponement of the surcharge
has allowed the county to be
more competitive and pass sav-
ings along to its customers. This
has kept the waste stream flow-
ing to New River while the coun-
ty works on plans to cement flow
control, including the conversion
of its transfer station to a waste
recovery center that local haulers
will be required to use.
The board \was willing to con-
sider an additional postponement
of the surcharge if progress was
made toward extending the exist-
ing contract with Alachua. The


surcharge was included in Ala-
chua County's contract as a rev-
enue source to replace disposal
capacity the county will consume
in the landfill through the end of
2018. Postponing the fee means
the collection of that revenue will
have to take place over a longer
period of time.
NRSWA board members
didn't feel enough work on a
contract extension had been ac-
complished in the month since
they had originally discussed the
matter.
Landfill Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal said Alachua
County has a lot of wheels that
take time to turn. Palmi said a
lot of homework is needed to
determine how much capacity
Alachua County will need in the
future and how much the land-
fill will be able to provide. She
predicted regular meetings with
O'Neal would be needed to plan
for the future.
She asked that the 'board con-
tinue to waive the surcharge in
the meantime.
Board members were not in-
terested. Baker County Commis-
sioner Michael Crews said in the
four weeks since the last board
meeting, Palmi and O'Neal had
only met once.
"I wonder ifthe wheels would
spin faster if we just allow the re-
duction to expire as scheduled of
March I1?" he asked. He said it
doesn't appear Alachua County
is taking the matter seriousl.

(Thefollowing is a statement of
intention to run for public office,
submitted by the candidate.)
Dear voters of Union County:
I am excited about the
opportunity of becoming your
county judge. As most of you
know, I have been the assistant
state attorney division chief of
Union County for the past 15-
plus years. I have remained here
because of my love for the people
and for the sense of community,
which fosters a pleasant working
environment.
It has been a pleasure to
become a working member of
Union County. Your support and
encouragement have convinced
me that you want to draw on
my experience and fairness to
continue the fine work of our
outstanding judicial system.
You know my beliefs in
personal accountability, hard
work and reviewing issues on
an individual basis. These ideals
have been and will continue to be
my philosophy in the courtroom
and in other judicial functions.
During my tenure in Union
County, I have prosecuted 10,000
criminal cases and participated
in proceedings involving mental
health, first appearances, bond
reductions, and search and
arrest warrants. We have a great
sheriff's office and county clerk
staff, with whom I have had
the pleasure of working and
with whom I have developed
a harmonious professional and
personal relationship.
I am fully aware of the job
requirements, foremost of which
is the ability to make sound
decisions within the legal system
based on experience. Throughout
my lifetime since graduating from
my first job working on a chicken
farm, I have driven a school bus,
worked at a gas station and still
managed to participate in sports
while in college. For 10 years, I
taught and coached in high school,
becoming a head coach at the age
of 27. Later I worked 12 years
for the Gatqr-5 -4ude.r three head
coaches, three .athletic. directors
and with numerous fantastic
. student athletes. I learned from all
these experiences the importance
of making fair decisions.
Then the athletic department
administration afforded me the
opportunity to attend the UF
College of Law. I continue with
the law school as an adjunct
professor, critiquing students in

courtroom procedures. As you
see, I have been involved with
decision-making and dealing
with people all of my professional
life. For what does a judge do but
make decisions, consider the law
and help people move on with
their lives?
My working experience
has reinforced my beliefs in
accountability, fairness and the
benefit of hard-work. My ability
to make decisions based on the
law and my personal experiences
have been my foundation for
being a successful prosecutor.
Recently, I was honored to
have been chosen statewide
Prosecutor of the Year by the
Fish and Wildlife Commission
and also received honors from
the Department of Corrections
Inspector General's Office. This
decision-making experience is
'what I offer you, the voters.
My wife, Monica, recently.
retired from 38 years as a teacher
and guidance counselor. She
looks forward to meeting more
of you and joining the Union
lifestyle. Our sons, Ben (Colorado
'School of Mines grad) and Luke
(Duke University grad), both
played college football and are
successful-i-ntheir careers. Our
daughter-in-law, Carolyn, and
Ben have two children, Owen
and Maddie. Luke is engaged to
Hilary Wilkinson.

Please talk to those who know
me. I am confident that you will
choose to vote for me as your
next county judge. I look forward
to meeting as many voters as
possible in the coming months.

This is primarily for grades 1-4
but pre-k and kindergarten may
participate if a parent is with
them. LBES has a trail marked
off at the back of the school.
Students may walk as little or as
much as they wish. School food
service staff will have a breakfast
cart in the area for those who
wish to eat breakfast outside at
a picnic table rather than in the
cafeteria.
The walk is open from 7:30
a.m. to 7:50 a.m., Monday
through Thursday. Tiger Up will
not be held on Fridays or on days


with inclement weather. Though
LBES will have volunteers

involved. If you are interested in
volunteering for this or any other,

say to your son: ..." God expected people to have questions

Archer donates to food pantry


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

The Union County Food
Pantry received a donation
recently to help the pantry in its
efforts to obtain their 501(c)3
tax exemption. This exemption
will open doors for the pantry to
better serve the community.
The Pre-need Association of
Archer Funeral Home presented
the pantry with this donation
to assist with the total amount
needed to file for this required
exemption. According to founder
and director John Johnson, this
was the largest single donation


received by the pantry thus far.
According to the Internal
Revenue ,Service, as a nonprofit
entity, the food pantry would
be considered as an eligible
pantry if the proper exemption
requirements were met making
it eligible to receive private and
public grants. A food pantry
is defined as an organization
that is exempt from taxation
under Section 501(c)3 of the
Internal Revenue Code of 1986,
as amended; and distributes
emergency food supplies to low-
income people in the area.
Once the exemption is
obtained, the pantry will


be eligible to receive more
assistance, promoting larger food
stocks, which in turn will provide
a larger amount of coverage in
Union County. At this time, the
need for food is much larger than
the supply the pantry currently
has to contribute.
The Union County Food
Pantry, located at 125 E. Main St.
in Lake Butler, and is in desperate
need of food donations.
The pantry hours are Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations may be
dropped off directly at the pantry,
at Roberts Insurance or the Union
County Times.

What doe. this mean? We have learned from our monitoring and testing that some constituents have been
detected. Our water system was in violation of federal and state water quality standards for coliobrm in June
and July 2011. The levels of coliform bacteria are shown in the test results Table. Coliforms are bacteria that
are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful, bacteria
may be present. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential
problems. Further testing was performed and all results were negative.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, espreiaUy for pregnant women and
young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service
lines and home plumbing. The City of Lake Butler is responsible for providing high quality drinking water,
but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting
for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2
minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may
wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can
take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at

Weatherization program helps low-income homeowners


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

The Weatherization Assistance
Program (WAP) will be coming to
an end this year. This program has
assisted many citizens of Union
County since it first began.
According to Director of Housing
Matt Pearson, this program. is
a stimulus program and is part
of the American Reinvestment
and Recovery Act. The program
is intended to help low-income
families to permanently reduce
their energy bills by making their
homes more energy efficient. In
addition, the program provides
work to stimulate the local economy
through the purchasing of materials
from local stores to complete the
work and providing contractors with
additional construction opportunities
that would not have been available
otherwise.
Funds are used to improve thie
energy performance of dwellings
of needy families using the most
advanced technologies and testing
protocols available in the housing
industry.
. According to the U.S. Department
of Energy (DOE), the program
provides funding to states, U.S.'
overseas territories, and Indian tribal
governments, which manage the


day-to-day details of the program.
These governments, in turn, fund a
network of local community, action
agencies, nonprofit organizations,
and local goverflnents, that provide
these weatherization services in
every state, the District of Columbia,
U.S. 'territories, and among Native
American tribes.
The energy conservation resulting
from these efforts of state and local
agencies helps our country reduce
its dependence on foreign oil and
decrease the cost of energy for
families in need while improving.
the health and safety of their homes.
During the past 33 years, WAP has
provided weatherization services to
more than 6.4 million low-income
households. Families receiving
weatherization services see their.
annual energy bills reduced by an
average of about $437, depending on
fuel prices.
Local Union County Contractor
Richard 0. Tillis said that the
program generated many jobs that
allowed workers to maintain their
employment status.
Tillis' business performed
weatherization work on
approximately 80 homes this past
year in the three-county area of
Bradford, Columbia and Union.
According to Tillis, there are
several improvement categories
a dwelling could be approved for


based on need and
a guideline of costs '
to stay within.
The entire cost
of each job cannot
exceed .. $5,000
with an additional
$600 available for
health and safety
to include: smoke
alarms, stve .
/venting, electric al
repair, etc.
Items such
as floors, walls,
refrigerators,
windows, doors,
water heaters,
etc., are replaced
depending on each
home. Holes in -.
walls and floors
are repaired and
insulation may be .
placed if needed. ..
Tillis said,
"Many of these
homes needed the ':.
work we provided
severely. Without
this program, ....
these low-income
families would not have had the LEFT: Damage to the walls, bathtub and floor are repair
ability to make these repairs. this bathroom Is more energy efficient ant
The program will end in June with
all work required to be completed by
June 30. Anyone wishing to receive information on this, project can call the SoUwannee Economric Council of

Historic old tags discussed at UC museum


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

A' presentation of history
throughout the years was given
at the Union County Historical
Museum recently with a display
of Florida tags dating back to
1918.
On Feb. 27, Bill McGill of the
Union County' Historical Society
introduced the guIest speaker
of the evening as longtime tag
collector Jeff Frangis of St.
Petersburg. Francis said that.
collecting license plates was a
longtime passion and a part of
his life. After 20 years of actively
collecting, Francis is attempting
to collect the harder to find tags
of smaller counties within the 67.
counties of Florida. -..-....... -
Francis said, "Tags from larger
counties are easier to get, but
smaller counties are the hardest
to find."
Francis presented his collection
of tags, one by one, describing
the material they were made
of and -the different symbols,
numbers, etc., that, were on each.
In Francis' collection, there was
a tag that was made prior to
1918 when correctional facility
inmates began making plates.
,This particular tag was labeled


. o-
7. 2


HU '

-iflmmy-ThoTnton donated
this rare tag to the
museum. The emblem of
Florida Is printed upside
down and is one of only
six tags known for this
discrepancy.

as being made at the Baltimore
Novelty Company, which was
common at that time.
Francis shared the history of
tags beginning in 1905 when the


first registrations were required.
Each owner was required to make
his own plates, typically out of
leather or flat, painted metal.
From 1911 to '1917,' license
plates were issued for the 57
Florida counties existing at the
time, usually made of porcelain
or embossed tin.
In 1918, Florida issued its
first state plates, white on black
and flat painted. Florida was the
last of the 48 states at the time
to have a unified license plate.
Between 1934 and 1935, locking
plates were issued during the
Depression to prevent theft.
These plates had a separate metal
plate that slid in the back to show
the dates. These plates were
said to be nearly impossible to
remove-..,.
In 1938, the county code
numbers were used for the first
time. Based on the 1937Census, I
was Dade County, 67 was Liberty
County and Union was assigned
number 63. In 1943, small metal
tabs were used to revalidate.1942
plates to conserve metal during
World War II.
In 1949, the first slogans
appeared on Florida license
plates. Although, most are
familiar with Florida being the


sunshine state, it was not the
first state to use this slogan. New
Mexico used that slogan for one
year during 1932.
The year 1975 marked the end
of issuing the stamped, dated and
numerically coded county tags,
which were used until 1980. In
1977, after disapproval of the
public on the loss of these county
identifier codes, the state agreed
to use small sticker strips on the
bottom of newly issued green and
white "Plain Jane" tags spelling
out the name of the county. In
1979, new plates were issued
with the orange map in the center
and the county names embossed
on the bottom.
And finally, according to
Francis, in 2003, the last of the
colorful .annual stickers were
issued in Florida which were rare.
To date, a computer-generated
sticker is used which is all black
and yellow. Collectors like
Francis find this very boring.
A unique tag currently housed
at the Union County Historical
Museum was also on display.
This particular tag was donated
by Jimmy Thornton of Lake
Butler. Thornton purchased this
tag in the 1980s and said that
immediately after paying for


it, he noticed the pre-printed
Florida emblem in the center was
upside down. There were only
six known tags made like this and
they were meant to be destroyed.
However, -because Thornton
had already purchased the tag,
it was his to keep, and so he did
until .new Florida license plates
were issued. Thornton has also
donated several historical items
and memorabilia to the museum
so that the citizens of Lake Butler
can have the opportunity to enjoy
them.
Lisa Johnson, an employee
of the tax collector's office for
many years, was also present for
this event to share some of the
specialty tags available today
in Union County and across the
state. Johnson explained each
tag and what charities each one
benefited and promoted.
McGill thanked. Francis
for maling tihi tiip from St.
Petersburg to be a guest speaker.
McGill said that Francis refused
the $100 that was to be given to
him on the behalf of the historical
society for his trip. McGill
requested the approval of the
historical society attendees to re-
gift the money to the Lake Butler

Tigers make it to Final Four, lose to Hawthorne


The Union County Tiger bas-
ketball team's surprising run in
the playoffs ended Tuesday with
a heartbreaking 56-53 loss to the
Mawthorne Hornets in the state
semi-finals at the Lakeland Cen-
ter.
-Trailing the Hornets most of
the game, the Tigers had clawed
their way back to tie the game
near the end of the third quar-
ter behind the play of Shaimea
Maeweather, who finished with
22 points in the game.
Maeweather scored 8 points in
a row on an offensive rebound, a
3-pointer, and a 3-point play on a
driving layup and a foul shot to
knot the game at 37-37 with less
than 3 minutes left in the third
quarter.
The Tigers would take the lead
in the fourth quarter and were up
47-43 with less than four min-
utes to play after Keldric Bradley
had two nice drives to the basket
through traffic to score. Bradley
would finish with 13 points in
the game.
After the Tigers went up by
four points, the Hornets .were
able to draw fouls on several
drives to the basket and make the
free throws to pull back into the
lead at 51-50 with 1:48 to play in
the game.
The two teams than traded sev-
eral turnovers in the next minute,
which was typical of the entire
game. Both teams finished with
about 20 turnovers each in the
contest.
With 42 seconds left, the Hor-
nets controlled the ball after the
Tigers' final turnover, and held


it until the Tigers finally fouled
with 13 seconds left.
Hawthorne made the first free
throw, missed the second but was
able to grab the rebound and get
fouled again with nine seconds
remaining. The Hornets hit both


of the free throws to go up 54-50,
seeming to clinch the win.
But the Tigers' Bradley drove
the length of the court and made
another driving layup while be-
.ing fouled with four seconds to
go, cutting the Hornets' lead


back to two.
Bradley missed the free throw,
but Austin Dukes grabbed the re-
bound and was fouled as he tried
to put it back in for the score,
with two seconds remaining on
the clock and a chance for the Ti-*


gers to tie the game.
After Hawthorne called a tim-
eout, Dukes made the first free
throw, but missed on the second
after another Hornet timeout,
lea% ing the Tigers down 54-53.
The Tigers fouled Hawthorne


immediately on the rebound,
which provided the final two
points for the Hornets and a 56-
53 lead. Princeton Alexander's

The Tigers' Shaimea
Maeweather raises his arm
in victory following the
68-62 win over Chiefland,
which propelled, the Tigers
into the Final Four for the
second time in history.
Maeweather played an
integral part in the win over
Chiefland and helped keep
the Tigers in the Hawthorne-

Starke
bystanders really
help out
Dear Editor:
I want to thank all of the peo-
ple who stopped to help us on
Jan. 17 in Starke.
My husband and I were in-
volved in an accident that totaled
our car. The people who were be-
hind us in traffic that day stopped
and got us out of the car and
stayed with us until the police
and emergency workers arrived.
Unfortunately, the driver of the
little red car that caused the ac-
cident never stopped, he just kept
going.
(The bystanders) not only
helped us, but they all gave the
police their names and contact
information. Never have I seen
sjch compassion as we were
shown. I could never tell them
how much their actions meant to
us. God looked after us that day
and I know He will look after
every one of them and give them.
special blessings. Thanks again
to all of you!
Gratefully,
Mr. and Mrs.

Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Bradford-

ogy, I would like to thank you
for allowing us to participate
in the Clay County Emergency
Management Services Commu-
nity Emergency Response Team
weekend at Camp Keystone.
S My students, our families and
I truly enjoyed doing moulage
(casualty simulation drill) for
the students of the Florida Youth
Challenge Academy. We learned
a great deal that will help us in
our careers and we really had the
opportunity to experience first-
hand the tremendous responsibil-
ity first responders have in deal-
ing with disasters.
_.We all have a new apprecia-
tion for those who risk their own
lives to save ours. I look forward
to participating in this 'event in
the future and many of my stu-
dents wish they could repeat this
experience again.

Cosmetology Instructor
Fat to cut


Dear Editor:
It's no secret
tough all over.
cal governments


that times are
State and lo-
are feeling the


pinch and their budgets are get-
ting hammered. Basically, spend-
ing on what you need, not what
you want, cutting to the bone,
programs and services that are
nonessential, maybe furloughing
employees and cutting down to
four-day work weeks for some
departments.
In short, doing more with less.
Are we doing it in Bradford
County? Let's look at some ex-
amples and "paint a picture" so
to speak...
County employees are going
on five years without a raise.
Keep in mind, this is a group
that also had a three-percent pay
reduction due to paying into the
Florida Retirement System. That
stings to folks trying to make
the bills and having to pay the
ever-rising cost of fuel. Think of
the 38-year-old breadwinner of
a -family of four-every dollar
counts.
Nov. 1, 2010, former com-
missioner (John) Hersey made a
motion in his last meeting to give
every employee a $500 "bonus,"
or a "one-time market adjust-
ment" would be a better term for
it. If memory serves me right, it
was to the tune of $65,000 total.
To my knowledge, this never
passed.
Let's revisit this in a few...
The sheriff has demonstrated
fiscal responsibility and on more
than one occasion, being a stew-
ard of taxpayer dollars. From re-
placement of the outdated secu-
rity system at the courthouse and
jail, to purchases, such as two-
way radios, he has looked for the
deals and found them. Presenting
the county commissioners, with
$261,000 left over tells me he is
not a fool with our money. So,
what did the commission do with
that money?.
Let's look at another example.
Emergency Medical Services op-
erates four ambulances in a coun-
ty with a population of approxi-
mately 25,000 people-28,500 if
you count the prison population
in a land area of 300 square miles.
Cost for this is $2,686,284.
The national average is one
ambulance for every 10,000
people. Bradford County has
one ambulance for every 7,125
people. That would lead you to
think that there is always a unit
available to respond. Problem is,
they are not. Shands Starke uses
county ambulances on a daily
basis as a private transfer service
to take patients to Gainesville,
Jacksonville, Lake City, and
back to their homes and nursing
homes-and the county makes
a profit. That profit, however,
is unknown, due to a response
from a public records request,
dated June 20, 2011, that states
"Revenue from Inter-facility
transports is not separated from
other 'ambulance. service fees'


I IU


of the department." Really?
In olher words, it may not be
worth providing this service if it
costs more than we make.
What does this mean to the tax-
payer? It means while the unitin
Lawtey is taking a patient from
the hospital in Starke to Shands
UF, the residents who may need
that unit will have to wait 'r one
to come from possibly Ther'ssa,
or Union or Clay counties-de-
pending on availability.
Neat huh?
By comparison, Wakulla
County operates three full-time
ambulances for approximately
31,000 people in a county more
than twice the size, 735 square
miles, with no local hospital.
Their budget is $1,493,082.
Suwannee County .operates
four ambulances in a land area
of 682 square miles and 42,000
people. The EMS budget is $2.5
million-same money, bigger
county, more people. Note the
ratio of ambulances to every
10,000 people.
Salaries became a topic in an
article recently in Starkejournal.
com of the top 20 salaries in the
county.
Nine of those on the list are
EMS employees. What sticks
out to me, is one employee who
is not a supervisor department
head, or even a certified para-
medic, but made more than sev-
eral of those positions to the tune
of almost $59,000. That's with a
drive-home vehicle. Funny thing
is...this employee's hourly rate is
only $11.50 an hour.
I'm just a public school guy, so
pardon me...it don't add up! But
that's what you get when you pay
out an average over three years
of over $446,000 in overtime ev-
ery year!
This is not a personnel prob-
lem, strictly a management prob-
lem. The men and women in the
street doing the good work are
not to blame
But there seems to be a fair-
ness issue here and it appears to
be a case of the haves and the
have-nots.
My guess is that this does not
motivate or inspire the other
county employees who haven't
had a raise in over four years.
Can you blame them?

Card of Thanks

I would like to thank Eddie
Lewis, my county
commissioner, for getting a

The county doesn't have mon-
ey to build restroom facilities'
for a building they own, like the
fire station in Sampson City, or
provide the volunteer firefighters
inoculations against blood borne
pathogens at $36 dollars a person
at the health department, or pro-
vide them with medical evalua-
tions mandated by the state for
five years now to keep them
safe and keep the county out of
liability problems-but they got
money to buy two specialty ve-
hicles for one department that
are nice to have and not really
needed to the tune of $117,197
taxpayer dollars. They can af-
ford a $20,000 cab and chassis
that will cost at least double that
to build for another because it
was "a deal." Not to mention the
other $36,387 dollars for nice-to-
have items that most other career
and volunteer departments don't
have-and all taxpayer dollars.
Hmm, priorities...
The county isn't sure where
the money will come from to
replace a bad piling on a bridge
located on Southwest 1061h Street
in Graham, so there it sits, rot-
ting away. Guess the folks go-
ing to the Bradford Sportsmen
Farm and the residents who
live beyond it will have to cross
their fingers for a while. We are
only talking about an estimated
$10,000 to fix it, but the road de-
partment is about to purchase a
new road grader- makes perfect
sense to me. Let's hope that ma-
chine doesn't collapse that bridge
when it crosses it.
So do we think the county can
help the employees who work to
keep things going around here
now? Sure they can. They have
to want to first! Take care of your
employees, motivate and inspire

them and they will bend over
backwards for you. Right now
I wouldn't blame some if they
wouldn't simply bend over.
Take a lesson from St. Johns
County, which back in Decem-
ber approved giving every full-
time employee a $500 one-time
adjustment and part-timers $250.
To quote their county manager,
"Morale is much higher. We've
gotten a lot of 'thank-you.' calls."
To quote Bradford County's
manager, in an Aug. 18, 2011,
Telegraph article "We're lean
and mean, I guarantee you."

Note from StarkeJournal.com
editor Dan Hildebran: In his let-
ter Mr. McDavid referred to a
StarkeJurnal.com story: Brad-
ford County's top 20 salaries.
In that Jan. 11 story, I listed the
top 20 Bradford County salaries
according to the website Flor-
idaOpenGov.org. While I ac-
curately reflected the content of
FloridaOpenGovenment.org., I
failed to point -out that the web-
site omitted several highly-paid
county employees including
Property Appraiser Jimmy Alva-
rez, Clerk Ray Norman, Tax Col-
lector Teila Pearson and others.
If all county employees had been
included on the list, several in-
cluded in the StarkeJournal.com
story would have fallen out of the
top 20.

About Union
County...
Dear Editor:
We have- been in business ior
more than 28 years, and in those


years, we have made a lot of
friends in Union. County/Lake
Butler: from the business comr
munity to the sheriff and his de--
partment to the courthouse and
county government. Everyone':
has a professional and positive
attitude, which makes it a great
place for us-as a business- to-
serve.
The school system's superin-
tendent, staff, principals, teach-
ers and all who make the schools
run are doing an outstanding job
teaching the children of Union
County. The schools are clean.
and free from trash and graffiti. I1
know the school board members.
are proud of their accomplish-
ments.
While working in the schools,
it is really refreshing that the stu-
dents are well-behaved and they-
will say "hello" or "good morn-
ing" and they have respect by;
saying (are you ready?) "yes sir"
and "no, sir" and "yes ma'am".
and "no ma'am." How cool is
that?
Our state and every state should,
take lessons from Union County
and its good people. If you drive
by Spires grocery on S.R. 100 in'
Lake Butler, you will see a sign
that reads, "Hometown Pride."
This is true in every way.
Warm regards,
Max and Barbara Norton,:
of A+ Alarms

have only to endure to
conquer. You have only to -
persevere to save yourselves. .

Jury convicts man
on lesser charges
The state attorney's office
asked a Bradford County jury to
convict a man for four felonies
but the six-member panel chose
instead to declare him guilty of
one misdemeanor, battery.
Prosecutors charged John La-
mar Crews, now 42, with kid-
napping, aggravated assault with
a deadly weapon, felony battery-
repeat offender and tampering
with a witness, victim or infor-
mant.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, Deputy Thomas B
Harrison on Aug. 7, 2011, found
Crews hiding in the woods be-
hind a residence near the inter-
section of S.R. 100, West and
C.R. 225 (Bayless Highway). :
Crews' stepfather told Harrison
that the suspect had been drink-
ing and threatened to stab him
with a pair of pruning sheers.
Crews' mother told the deputy
that her son threatened to burn
down her house with her in it. She
said he then cut the phone line to
her house so she couldn't call
police.
The suspect denied the allega-
tions and told Harrison his moth-
er was mad at him because he
had been drinking. The deputy
arrested Crews for obstructing
police and for aggravated bat-
tery.
In a Feb. .21 trial, Assistant
State Attorney Bruce Helling
laid out to jurors his version of
the Aug. 7 events, matching up
each charge to the defendant's
behavior in August. The pros-
ecutor said Crews kidnapped his
stepfather by holding the man
against his will, restricting his
movement by threatening him
with a pair of tinsnips.
The felony battery and aggra-
vated assault charges also arose
from Crews' use of the tinsnips.
Both Crews' mother and
stepfather testified they saw the
defendant cut the family's tele-
phone line, prohibiting them
from calling law enforcement.
The prosecutor said that action
constituted tampering with a wit-
ness; victim or informant.
h Assistant Public Defender
Sheree Graham told jurors that
the interaction between Crews
and his mother and stepfather in
the early hours of Aug. 7 was a
continuation of an Aug. 6 dispute
the younger man had with his
mother over the presence of beer
6On her property.
.She told jurors, and reinforced
through cross-examination of the
miiother and stepfather, that Crews
lived with his parents, and that
his mother had a long-standing
rule against alcoholic beverages
in her house.
'This was a major issue in the
house," she said of the mother's
alcohol prohibition.
-.Graham argued that on Aug.
6, an acquaintance of Crews
bought a beer onto the property
and the mother objected. Moth-
er and son then engaged in a ver-
bal dispute, with the son leaving
the property, returning after mid-
night.
'The evidence will show la-
dies and gentlemen that this was
a :heated discussion," she said.
"It wasn't just simple disagree-
ment."
.The defense lawyer added

Josephine B. Yatco, MD, FAAP

that when Crews returned to the
home on the 7, he had no inten-
tion of hurting anyone.
"When Mr. Crews entered the
home after midniglit in Aug. 7,
he wanted to talk and settle some
things about this issue," Graham
continued.
Both the mother and stepfather
testified during the one-day trial.
Ajudge sentenced Crews to the
maximum penalty for the misde-
meanor battery charge, one year
in jail. Had he been convicted of
the felony charges, Crews could
have been sentenced to 30 years
in prison.

Man not guilty

of DUI
A Bradford County jury ac-
quitted a 48-year-old Starke
man of DUI Feb. 22. Dar-
ren Keith Keene told jurors
a' Bradford County deputy
stopped him while he was driv-
ing from the Whisky River Sa-
loon to a friend's house in the
early morning hours of Oct. 8,
2011. Keene added that he was
shocked when Deputy Trent
Page handcuffed him for DUI.
"I absolutely was npt im-
paired," the 48-year-old told
the six-member panel and one
alternate.
. Page arrested Keene on S.R.
100, west, near Crosby Lake
Cemetery. The lawman told ju-
rors he made the arrest after he
saw Keene driving erratically
and after putting the 48-year-
old through field sobriety tests.
Assistant State Attorney
Marcus Cathey emphasized
to jurors Page's testimony,
particularly the parts of the
deputy's testimony that could
not be corroborated by video
the jury viewed. Page told ju-
rors he smelled alcohol on the
man's breath and observed the
48-year-old with bloodshot
eyes, two observations not
picked up omthe video.
The prosecutor also pointed
out to the panel that Keene ad-
mitted to changing his story,
first telling Page he consumed
no alcohol prior to being pulled
over, later admitting to the
deputy, he drank one beer, then
confessing to the jury, he had
consumed two beers that night.
Cathey also told jurors that
the defendant's refusal to pro-
vide a breath sample revealed a
"consciousness of guilt."
"There is no reason not to
take that test," Cathey told ju-
rors, "if he knows he has not


had too much to drink. But he
knew he was guilty, and that's
consciousness of guilt."
Keene's lawyer Casey Bry-
ant told jurors to base their ver-
dict on what they saw with their
own eyes.
"You don't have to believe a
word Deputy Page tells you,"
he said. "You've got the video
tape and you can see what hap-
pened yourself."

Report: burglar
broke into home,
drank beer,
phoned victim
A Lake Butler man broke into
a Bradford County residence,
helped himself to the hom-
eowner's beer, then telephoned
the victim to boast about the
burglary, according to a sher-
iff's office report.
Thomas Henry Kent, 26, was
charged with burglary.
The allegations against Kent
are not proven and he is inno-
cent until adjudicated guilty by
a court.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, the homeowner was
away from the residence during
the Feb. 20 break-in. He told
deputies Kent called him after
the suspect gained access into
his refrigerator and bragged
about how easy it was to get
into the home.
A deputy later found evi-
dence an intruder entered the
home through a bathroom win-
dow, but did not find a suspect
in or around the structure.
The victim gave the deputy
a description of Kent's car and
another deputy soon stopped
the described vehicle not far
from the victim's home, in the
area of Dyal Cemetery.
According to the second law-
man, Kent admitted to breaking
into the home. The deputy also
reported that Kent claimed all
he did while inside the structure
was drink beer.

Report: Woman
ignored deputy's
advice, arrested
for burglary
A Bradford deputy wrote in
a report that he warned a Law-
tey woman not to enter an un-
occupied apartment and later
arrested the' woman after she
disregarded his advice.

Deputy Brian Melvin wrote
that he charged Holly Selina
Prevatt, 26, with burglary.
The allegations in the report
are not proven and Prevatt is in-
nocent until adjudicated guilty
by a court.
The deputy wrote that on Feb.
24, around 9:42 p.m., he was
dispatched to Lawtey and met
with Prevatt. Melvin claimed
the 26-year-old told him she
wanted to retrieve another per-
son's EBT card and emergency
cash from within the unoccu-
pied apartment, and wanted to
know what would happen if she
entered the structure through a
window.
"I advised Holly that if she
entered the residence when the
owner was not home," wrote
the lawman, "Holly would be
charged with burglary."
Melvin added that he then
instructed Prevatt to leave the
premises and that she complied
with his order.

However, just after 10:30
the deputy was called back to
the same apartment. There, he
met the resident who claimed
that when she entered the rental
through the front door, she saw
Prevatt leaving through the
back door. The victim added
that nothing appeared to be
missing from the apartment.

Raiford man travels throughout country with Tribute Quartet


BY MARCIA MILLER
Special to the Telegraph-Times-
Monitor
It isn't often you find music
that has the ability to bring tears
to the eyes of both a two-time
convicted murderer and a 20-year
veteran law enforcement officer,
but the Tribute Quartet provided
just that type of music-on Feb.
2Q during a performance at the
chapel at Union Correctional
Institution.
The Southern gospel quartet
is based in Nashville, Tenn., and
took time out of a national tour
to .allow one member to visit his
family in Raiford last week. Josh
Singletary, the group's baritone
and keyboard player, is the son
of Roy and Gena Singletary. He
graduated from Union County
High School in 2000. .,
While in Raiford, the group
performed at both Singletary's
home church, Fellowship Baptist,
and at UCI where his mother
wdrks as an administrative
assistant to the assistant warden.
The remainder of the group
consists of veteran lead singer
and manager Gary Casto, tenor
Riley Clark and bass Anthony
Davis. Singletary said the group
performs Southern gospel music
i.gthe tradition of the Bill Gaither
HbImecoming Videos. Clark's
cle~i tenor is uplifting while
Divis' bass makes the ribcages
inri e audience vibrate.
Casto relates the song's
stOry and focuses the music
white Singletary provides that
filial ingredient that melds it
all~ogether into a powerful
performance that drew many an
eXtatimed "Yes, Lord!" from the
audience at UCI.
Singletary grew up in Raiford.
His small-town background and
Cfistian upbringing coupled
wfth a love of music at an early
a
started playing the piano at
th lge of five," said Singletary.
"Isang in school and grew up
singing in church."
Sigletary took piano and
mttfc lessons for most of his
yditg life. He. said Worthington

C||tt and Dene Ward were big
influences on his early love opf

lessons. Music has just always
been a big part of my life," said
Singletary.
Singletary's love of music
meshed perfectly with his
dedication to the Lord and led him
to seek a career in gospel-singing.
While traveling with another
gospel group, the Wilburns, he
met and performed with Casto
for the first time in 2001.
The two traveled with the
family group and performed in'
churches, auditoriums and many
other venues for several years.
When the family decided to
retire, Casto and Singletary were
still going strong.
They decided to form .a
new group and began holding
auditions. They found Clark and
Davis, and the quartet has been
together now for six years. They
tour all over the country and even
outside of the United States. They
had 215 appearances last year
ranging from Florida, to Maine,
to Washington state, to Canada,
to Mexico. They are currently
making plans to tour Ireland and
Norway.
The members of the group
have earned acclaim from
those who follow gospel music.
"Singing News" magazine, one
of the largest Christian music
magazines, presented them with
its Fan Award last year. In 2008,
The' Tribute Quartet was voted
Horizon Group of the Year and
SouthernGospelNews.com
chose them as Breakout Artist of
the Year.
Clark has been nominated for
Tenor of the Year and Top-10
Horizon Individual. The group
has appeared on TBN, GMT,
Daystar and other television
venues.
"We've been very blessed
to be able to do what we've
done in such a short time," said
Singletary.
Wanting to share their love
of God with others is the big
driving factor in all their lives, he
said. "We aU sang in church and
consider thatbur mainstay," said
Singletary. "We go to all kinds
of churches big churches, little
churches."
Singletary said that whether
the group is performing in a
'concert hall with 20,QQ0,O tsz
or in a nursing home day room
for 20 patients, the excitement
of sharing their own personal
love of the Lord makes each
performance a memorable one.
Traveling from town to town
and church to church all year for
years at a time is not a life that

it suits Singletary and the other
members of the group perfectly.
"It is definitely an unusual life.
It can be difficult, but it's very
rewarding," said Singletary. "To
see the lives changed, touched
and filled with the hope of Jesus
makes it all worthwhile.
"Therein lies the reason why
I got into it," he said. "I always
had a desire to minister through
music. I can't think of a greater
platform to do just that than what
1 do. I'm very thankful for this
life."
The group finished up a Florida
tour in February and is headed

and California in March.

The Tribute Quartet, based In Nashville, Tenn., spends most of every year traveling all
over the nation. Highly acclaimed in gospel music circles, the group Includes Josh
Singletary (at right), who grew up in Union County. The other members are (1-r) tenor
Riley Clark, lead singer and manager Gary Casto, and bass Anthony Davis. Singletary
sings baritone and plays the keyboard. (Photo by Melissa Touchstone.)


FAR RIGHT: The group's
bass singer is Anthony
Davis. Although he takes
a lot of ribbing about
his lightweight build,
the young singer can
rattle ribcages with his
deep bass voice. RIGHT:
Riley Clark's voice helps
transport listeners a little
closer to the clouds as he
