Policy issues


dominate LB


city meeting


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor


)


At the monthly Lake Butler
City Commission meeting,
several procedures and policies
were questioned. These items
included the policies for hiring/
firing, planning special meetings
and requests for agenda items.
Vice Mayor Lonnie Norman
addressedthecitycommissionand
said that he felt the commission
needed to be more involved and
should have the final word on the
hiring/firing of city employees.
Norman suggested that after a
candidate was chosen for hire/
dismissal, that the commission
make the final decision with a
majority vote.
City Manager Dave Mecusker
would still be in charge of
advertising for positions,
interviews, etc., to narrow down
choices prior to commission's
decision. City Commissioner
Scott Cason asked the city's
attorney if that had ever been
done. John Mainesl IVresponded.
"No." Mayor Fred Sinnones
asked what policy was min c iecL
The commissions deeamimd dadt
in the cidly manager's coiaat, it
states that he womd be in charge
of al hiring .and irfing and to
change this would be changing
a city ordinance that has been in
place long before now.
Norman made a motion to
have the city commission make
the final decision on hiring/firing
and to rewrite the ordinance.
The motion died due to lack of
second.
Norman began discussing
policies in reference to the
planning of special meetings
and the time frame of when they
were held. Norman said there
needed to be a guideline which
everyone follows for scheduling
and notification. After discussion
between the city commissioners
on the matter, previous City
Manager Richard Tillis spoke
openly, giving insight from his
past experience. Tillis explained
the purpose, requirements,
time frames and reasons for
special meetings to assist the
commission with their decision.
A motion was made by Cason
that anytime a special meeting
is scheduled, the city manager
or his designee would call each
individual commission member
including the city attorney, and
that a record be kept of who
was notified. All agreed and the
motioned carried.
The issue of agenda items and
the policy of adding items to
the agenda were then discussed.
Norman said that at the last
meeting he had requested that
items be listed on the agenda
but Mayor Sirmones declined. "I
don't think a city commissioner
should be rejected for an agenda
item. We were elected by the
people to speak for the people,
and I felt these issues were

important enough to be discussed
with a decision being made," he
said. Norman said that a citizen
or a city commissioner should
be able to speak and be heard.
Cason asked Maines what the
control was on what is placed
on the agenda. Maines said that
the mayor has always had the
ability to be involved in the
agenda planning process, but
said that if the board felt that
any item should be added to the
agenda, then a motion needed to
be made and incorporated into
the procedures. Norman moved
that any commissioner be able to
request an agenda item and not
be turned down. Cason seconded
with all in favor.
The next item to be discussed
was listed as catering service,
but Norman said that this issue
wasn't exactly pertaining to
catering service. Norman said
any entity that the city of Lake
Butter does business with should
be propediy licensed and insured.
"We need to be covered liability-
wise by anyone we do business
with," said Norman.
Tilis was then asked once
again for insight into the policies
ad procedures used during
Iis time as city manager. Tillis
explained different instances
where different practices could
be used and what procedures had
been used in past years. Cason
said that he felt the issue had more
ulterior motive than just liability
to the city. Norman asked what
kind of motive, however Cason
said he had no further comments
on the matter.
Several community members
brought up the matter of
insurance and license that they
aren't required to have to provide
the services that they do. Norman
said he just wanted the liability
of Lake Butler covered.
Tillis reminded the board
of a policy that was in place
concerning services received
under a certain amount.
Tillis continued to inform the
commission on how such issues
were handled in the past and that
smaller business transactions
were not handled in the way
Norman would like. That would
be a policy decision that would
have to be made if that was the
commission's wish.
Several other community
members brought it to the
attention of the city commission
that having license and insurance
not only was never an issue
before for smaller businesses but
also raised the question of other
individuals who had worked for
the city in the past who were
never required to have either.
Norman said that his motion
was that any business that the
city was to do business with
be required to provide that
information. His motion died for
lack of second.
Cason thanked Tillis for his
input during the meeting.

4A UNION COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012



John Maines will run for Union County judge's seat


(The following is a statement of
intention to run for public office,
submitted by the candidate.)
It is a privilege to announce
my candidacy for Union
County judge. I came to Lake
Butler to practice law in 1984
after graduating from Emory
University Law School in Atlanta
and being admitted to the Florida
Bar. With six generations of
family and direct ancestors in
Union County it seemed the
logical place to begin my legal
career. Many of you have met
my wife Cindy who is a certified
liaralegal, and my son John E.
Maines V.
My legal career has been
directed at assisting the people of
Union County and surrounding
areas in a wide variety of cases.
A criminal practice that
includes more than six years as


John Maines

an assistant public defender and
assistant state attorney for the
Eighth Circuit, which includes


Union County. I was the assigned
prosecutor for Union County for
several years handling all levels
of misdemeanor and felony
cases. Afterward, and continuing
to the present time, the courts
have appointed me to thousands
of criminal and dependency
cases. Dependency cases involve
abused and neglected children
and their families.
City attorney for the city of
Lake Butler since 1994. Counsel
for the Code Enforcement Board,
Planning and Zoning Board and
Board of Adjustment for Lake.
Butler.
City/town attorney for
LaCrosse,Brooker,and Hampton.
Counsel for the Planning and
Zoning Board and Board of
Adjustment for each community.
Counsel for the Union County
Housing Authority for 17 years,


until 2011.
Attorney for WUCR-FM
since its inception.

Private practice including:
Probate-the administration
of assets of persons who
are deceased, including
full administration, family
administration and summary
administration, the procedure
used depending on the
circumstances of each deceased
individual.
Real estate-transaction
closings, contract disputes,
title examination and issuance
of millions of dollars of title
insurance.
Small claims, dissolution of
marriage,adoption,determination
of paternity, modification and
general litigation.
Many of these matters resulted


in court appearances, hearings
and trials here in Union County.
Jury trials include personal
injury, civil, criminal and real
property determinations.

Positions of leadership include
past president of the Lake Butler
Rotary Club, chair of the Alachua
County Regional Juvenile
Detention Center Advisory
Board (which encompasses
Union County), and member of
the Board of Governors of the
Heritage Club of Gainesville.
Each of the cases I have been
responsible for has enhanced in
some way my appreciation of the
legal system but, perhaps more
importantly, my understanding
of the- people who need help
navigating our courts.
I understand what is expected
of the Union County judge,


having experience in not only
criminal cases but civil matters
as well. The correct temperament
and instincts are necessary for an
exemplary performance in this
office.
If elected, I fully intend to
bring the breadth and depth of
my experience to the position of-
Union County judge. Programs
and services, which can assist
our residents, will be encouraged
and used. The needs of our
community and its individuals
are understood by this candidate.
Your support and vote would
be greatly appreciated. If you
need any help in making your
decision to choose me as your
next county judge, feel free to
contact me at 386-496-3815 and
I will be happy to answer any
questions or concerns you may
have. Thank you.

The Urgency of Baptism
When one reads through the book of Acts, one is impressed
.with the urgency of baptism. When the Jailer in Acts 16 wants
to be saved the text says, "And immediately he and all his
family were baptized" (Acts 16:33). There was no delay, no
waiting for a special service, etc. It was done as soon as
possible. Inr Acts 22:16 Ananias is recorded as asking Saul,
"And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and
wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord."
Ananias did not encourage Paul to delay or put off baptism. He
did not tell him to wait for a special service held on a special
day. Paul believed, was repentant (Acts 9:9), and knew he
needed to be saved and baptism was necessary to wash away
his sins. Baptism is urgent because it is necessary for salvation,
"baptism doth also now save us" (1 Peter 3:21).

Union County Riding Club celebrating 50 years, long history


BY RALPH PARRISH
Special to the Times


As we look to the Union
County Riding Club's 50-year
celebration, I began thinking
about all the people I have
known and met through the club.
While thinking of these people, I
also began to think of their good
horses.
In 1974, my first year of riding,
J.P. Bennett (club founder) rode a
'horse he called King. Then there
was the Doyle Hazen family with
Doyle riding a big horse he had
gotten out of Texas and Dickey
riding.King, a blaze-face sorrel.


By the way, I am told there is
a story of how the really good
horse King was passed along to
Dickey from previous owners in
Lake Butler. 1
Roscoe Seay was riding Bright
and Ralph was riding a horse
called Ginger who was mighty
hard to beat. By the way, Roscoe's
and Walter's horses both came
from Fred McDavid of Brooker.
Then there are people like:
Eddy O'Steen and Lobo
Lamar Reddish and a paint
called King that came from
Lowell Shadd
Jeff Clemmons on his horse
Question Mark


Allegra and Arthur Saunders
on their good horses Pudding and
Sugar
By the way, the mare Ralph
Seay rode was also the mother
of Roscoe's great horse Cloud.
Then there was Junior -Hersey
who rode a big palomino and
several others because you could
always bet Junior would always
show up with a good horse. I
cannot forget my uncle Robbie
Parrish on Pete, his last horse.
Years passed and competition
increased, along came new people
and new horses to continue on
with the strong competition at
UCRC. J.W. Dorminey had a


great stud named Artic Cloud that
brought new blood to our local
competitive horses. Clarence
Seay had Breadman and 440 and
Joe Hendricks comes back to
compete with Old Smokey. And
then there was Albert Andrews,
returning with a great line of
horses including AJ., Awesome,
Hindsight and many others.
John Roberts, Wayne Roberts,
Ronnie Keller, Ronnie Williams
and other local families joined
the club and brought additional
competition for several years.
These folks also helped
to improve the club grounds
through the years. I sure do not


want to forget my good friends,
the Harlis Ellington family, who
remain strong today with Mel,
Garrett and Garth continuing to
be faithful riders. The Ellington
family horses I remember include
Scarlet, Playboy, Magic and
Autumn. Also in the 1980s, the
Wade and Dot Andrews family
along with Dora and family
were very involved, joining with
many others to keep a strong club
in tack. I just cannot think of
UCRC's past and present friends
without remembering the great
horses they rode.
This is just some of the folks


I remember. I amt sure I have
missed many and to those, I
apologize. Because you see in the
last 50 years, UCRC has touched
many families' lives. Today we
are still adding new families and
new horses to those memories.
This is why we want to celebrate
our club that has been good for
both Union County and many of
the families that live here.

Please join us f6r th~'f-aide
and events planned for March 31
and April 1. I1 will see you there,
please bring your pictures and
your stories and be ready to ride.

Food

Pantry

car

wash

BY TIFFANYY
CLARK
Times Editor
. The 'Union County
Food Pantry hosted
a car wash this past ." '
Saturday at Spires
IGA in Lake Butler to
raise funds to replenish
the food stock that
dwindles each weok
as donations are given
out to needy families.
The pantry
volunteers who
attended the event
were Felicia and -O
Danny Settles and John ,
Johnson. Volunteers, ,
mainly children,
from the community j
also helped with the
car wash to support
the cause. The Rev.
Randy Murray helped
by hand picking the
students who assisted
from Union. County
High School
Chavela Lee held
up the homemade car
wash sign while high '
school student Ashton
Peterson used his loud vocal abilities to spread
the word. Other high school students involved
were Christopher Morton, Devin Boone, Matthew
Weeks, Brandon Tussinger, Anthony Phillips,
Devin Phillips and Brittany Crawford.
From Lake Butler*Middle School were Michael
Crawford and Hailey Clark. From Lake Butler
Elementary School were the mini washers DJ,
Kyra and Alana (Nani) Castleberry. This small trio
could not reach very high but they made sure that
everything from the wheels down shone like new.


There was no set price for the wash, just
donations. Some members of the community who
did not have time for a quick rinse simply donated
towards the cause anyway.
The car wash was a success with pantry earning
more than the previous car wash held earlier this
year. This allowed the pantry to purchase food,
which came in handy with the amount of people
who visited the pantry this past Monday in need.
TheFoodPantryalsocollectedmoneyforan Easter


basket
raffle. The tickets are $5 and can be purchased
during regular hours of operation or where ever
pantry members may be seen selling tickets. All
proceeds benefit the pantry's cause. The Easter
basket is a very large basket filled with a laege
bunny and goodies. The drawing will be held on
Thursday, April 5, and the winner will be notified
on April 6. One of the mini washer elementary
children will draw the winning ticket.
Another event geared toward helping the
community is the spring break bag give away. This

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
"Mr. Pickle" was tickled,
along with everyone else at the
March 10 dedication of a park
at the Arc of Bradford County
that was made possible through
the generosity of an entire com-
munity.
Arc employee Steve Dara,
who is affectionately known as
"Mr. Pickle" by Arc consumers
after making a joke that pickle-
scented air-fresheners could be
sold as part of a fundraiser, came
up with the idea of the park,
which is located behind the Arc
facility, after talking over ideas
with co-worker Johnnie Mos-
ley. His idea, though, involved
more than swingsets and such
that you might normally find at
a park.
"When I started to work on
the design of the park, I said ev-
ery park that's set up for adults
.and children with disabilities
is a slab of concrete leading up
to a giant swingset," Dara said.
"That's no good. I came up with
the idea that I wanted a park
where they .(Arc consumers)
could work and play.",
There is a swingset at the
park, but there is also a physical
training-therapy course con-
sisting of nine exercise stations
utilizing such items as weights,
a stationary bicycle and.steps.


The Arc of Bradford County, though the support of many in the community, now
has a park in which consumers can exercise and perform physical therapy.


The park also includes two
covered pavilions as well as a
deck that leads, to a rock gar-
den.
He may have had the idea for
the park, but Dara said it would
not have been possible if not for
others' generosity.
"One thing that makes me
proud is every thing in this park
is donated by the residents, the
citizens and all the businesses of
Bradford County," Data said. "I
know times are hard and people


1


118v tiLait


'V.'


are short on cash, but Bradford
County came through for the
Arc."
Dara estimated the total of
donated items-including the
dirt to get the project started-
was $9,000-$10,000.
This is what happens when
a community comes together,"
said Sherry Ruszkowski, the
executive director of the Arc of
Bradford County. "I just want
to say thank you to all of our
community partners in Bradford


County. You all are the absolute
best."
Dara presented plaques to
all those who donated time or
money to the project: Walmart
of Starke, Chuck Kramer, Terry
Hannah, Jackson Building Sup-
ply, Kevin Baker, Sharon Smith,
Handi-House, James Green,
Hillbilly Rock, Chrissy's Olde

'Canes for the Cure' selling chances for quilt
*The Bradford. Middle School "Canes For The Cure" Relay For Life of Bradford

S Some of the Bradford County residents who take part In racing at Lake City
- Speedway are (1-r) Henry Hodges of Dixie Speed Racing, Farelon McClellan and
Kim Alldredge, Andy Nichols and Randy Alldredge of Nickel and Dime Racing.
McClellan and Kim Alldredge won their respective classes this past season.


Racers AlIdredge, McClellan

learns points championships


- BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Segtonial News/Sports Editor
Though their.)eary-of experi-
ence differ, Bradford County
:residents Farelori McClellan and
Kim Alldredge both shared one
thing in common this past racing
-season at Lake City Speedway-
;-they both finished on top in their
respective classes.
McClellan, who guessed that
-he's been racing for approxi-
-mately 20 years, won the points
:championship in the e-modified
.cldss, while Alldredge capped
her second season behind the
-wheel by taking the points title
-inthe Hornet class.
Alldredge left little doubt
:that she was going to claim the
-Hornet trophy. Though she was
,moved into the men's Horent
:class from the women's Queen
Bee class because of her domi-
nance, she continued to rack up
the wins while competing against
a field of male drivers. She com-
peted in 21 races and won all 17
*that she finished, with wrecks
-prohibiting her from finishing


the other four. ,,,
Winning week after week
never got old. ..
"I'm in it to win it," said All-
dredge, who races as part of
Nickel and Dime Racing, which
consists of brother Andy .Nich-
ols, her husband, Randy, who
maintains her car, and brothers-
in-law ,Rodney Alldredge and
Tim Alldredge. "I just love to
win."
No one was close to her in


. thosy~i.s, Alldredge said. In
fact, the closest race she was in-
: ,oldeTir,,se said, was an exhi-
bition race at the end of the sea-
son in the next class up from the
Hornet level. She was the second
driver to cross the finish line.
"I was on the bumper of the
first-place car when I went
through the checkered flag,"
Alldredge said.
See RACERS, 3B


PARK
Continued from 1B
Funderburk and Capital City
Bank of Starke, which donated
$2,500.
"They were the ones who
made this park become what it
is," Dara said of Capital City.
Before Dara could make his
way back into the crowd after
handing out his plaques of rec-
ognition, co-worker Tony Sell-
ars presented, him with a framed
picture of a cartoon pickle that
was signed by Arc consumers.
"All the people around here
love Mr. Steve for what he
does," Sellars said. "Whatever
we need, he does it, but most of
all, he's someone all the people
here love."
The most moving part of the
dedication had to be Arc con-
sumer Stacie Hallowell talking
about how excited she was to
have the park and how it would
help her continue to work toward
her goal of walking and not hav-
ing to rely upon a wheelchair.
Hallowell, who is missing her
right hip, said she began physical
therapy in August 2011. She said
she is up to 155 steps.
"The doctors told me I would
never ever-possibly ever-be
able to walk," she said. "Now,
I'm overcoming it."
Hallowell took a few steps
to show those in attendance the
progress she has been making.
"Most of these clients out here
cannot walk or cannot speak,"
Hallowell said. "I thought for
sure I was going to be one of
them that could not hardly do
anything, but some of these cli-
ents and some of these workers
have inspired me to keep going."
Now, Hallowell -hopes she can
return the favor.
"Hopefully, this will inspire
them to want to move, run,jump
and function," Hallowell.said.
It seemed a fitting conclusion
to what began as a drawing by
Dara on a scrap piece of paper.
^'That's how it all. started,"
Ruszkowski said of the park
project. "I think that you would

RACERS
Continued from 2B
McClellan, on the other hand,
won only one race, which was
the last of the season. He finished
well enough in all the others to
be near the top of the point stand-
ings.
Still, he had no idea he was in
a position to win the champion-
ship. He admitted he wasn't even
going to race that final week
since he damaged his car in a
race in Bristol, Tenn., the previ-
ous week.
Fellow Bradford County racer
Jason Garver gave McClellan the
heads up.
"I had no idea until Jason
called me," McClellan said.
"Jason called me and told me. I
wasn't going to go the last week.
Jason called me and said, 'if you
go, you'll win the points.' I said,
'You're kidding?'"
McClellan said he was sur-
prised that it wasn't Garver who
was in line to win the e-mod
class.


"Honestly and truly, I thought
Jason was ahead in points,"
McClellan said. "If he didn't
blow up or break or something,
he won. I was thinking he was
ahead in points the whole time."
It was a repeat championship
for McClellan, who won the
championship the season before
as well. He guessed he won 10
races that season, but he wasn't
quite sure.
McClellan has accumulated a
number of wins and champion-
ships over the years.
"I quit keeping up with the
wins when we got up to about
23," McClellan said. "I don't
have a clue."
He may not know how many
wins he actually has, but fel-
low racer Nichols said a driver's
chances aren't good when Mc-
Clellan is in the field.
"Yeah, that red 01 shows up,
and you're running for second,"
Nichols said.
The same could be said for
any driver competing in a field
with Nichols' sister, but that
won't be the case next season
as Alldredge is planning to take
the season off to devote time to
watching her son play baseball.
Alldredge said it took approx-
imately a month for her brother
and her husband, Randy, who
maintains her car, to figure out
she was really serious.
"I think people still don't be-
lieve me," she said.
In looking at the success she
had last season, Alldredge said
thanks had to go to Nickel and


Dime sponsors Capital City'
Bank, Roberts Insurance and
Honeycutt Auto Mart of Lake
City.
Of course, racingjust wouldn't
be possible if she didn't have a
top-notch vehicle, thanks to her
main sponsor-husband Randy
and Sun State Collision.

Too much
overtime is
not good
Dear Editor:
The question has to be asked,
just when is enough just too
much? When is the payment
of overtime week after week,
month after month and year af-
ter year too much of a strain on
the taxpayers pocket. Sure, it's a
great thing to have for the county
EMS employee and what a great
bonus it is for him or her toward
retirement. But it is poor person-
nel management any way you
look at it.
Let's say that a government
entity has 18 employees who are
on the job 56 hours a week. Now
these employees are not exempt
from the federal fair wage and
hour laws and mist be paid time
and a half for anything over forty
hours, and in some cases, double
time.
Now, from the employees per-
spectives, this is great, and look
at what it does to that employees
retirement. This would really be
great if the county pot was full of
g6ld and money came as easy as
rain during a rainy season. But
that is not the way it is, nor is it
the way it was intended to be.
It is and always should be the
obligation and sworn responsibil-
ity of government to manage our
taxes with caution and reserve.
We havlepeople private in-
dustry who are qualified, willing
and able to take care of emer-
gency management issues on a
regular time basis and be totally
responsible for the people who
are in need. I would hope that
those people who are drawing the
monies week after week would
quit trying to justify it by pro-
nouncing the quality of service
received. I would also hope that
the courity management would,
get off their behinds and correct
this mistake.

Enforcing law
is an officer's
purpose
Dear Editor:
I read with interest the letter
fr6m Gene Norman, regarding
the enforcement of traffic laws in
the city of Lawtey. I have known
Gene for many years and con-
sider him a good man and a good
friend. I agree with Gene that
having more of a police presence
would make the school zone saf-
er, however, there are other fac-
tors to consider when it comes to
enforcing traffic laws.
For instance, the school zone
speed limit is only enforced for
two hours per day for 180 days a
year, or approximately four per-
cent of the time. We need to con-
sider what to do with the other 96


percent of the time, to make one
of our local roads safer, as well
as other areas that are down the
road.
For me, one of the most impor-
tant factors to consider is wheth-
er or not it requires a police pres-
ence for "law-abiding" citizens
to obey the law. If it does, there
would need to be that presence
literally everywhere, all the time,
which is impossible. Our laws
are designed in such a way that
we, as citizens, police ourselves
and penalties are established for
those who are not willing to do
that. These penalties serve as de-
terrents to help us remember our
responsibility in this matter.
Most citizens don't have a
problem policing themselves in
the matters of robbing, stealing,
killing, etc., but we do when it
comes to speeding. It's almost as
if we think we have the "right"
to speed. We need to remember
that speeding kills and the one
who dies could be someone we
care about.
There has been much written
lately about police officers who
"hide" in order to write tickets
for those who willfully 'exceed
posted speed limits. Most citi-
zens would agree that it is OK to
use whatever legal means neces-
sary to apprehend criminals for
more "serious" crimes, but not
for speeding. Remember, speed
kills-that's.'pretty serious. Be-
sides, some of those who are
stopped for speeding are found
to have no valid driver's license,
some are under the influence of
drugs or alcohol, some have out-
standing warrants, and some are
driving stolen vehicles. The list
goes on. Don't we want these
people off the road?
That's why it's hard for me
to understand why elected offi-
cials-who take an oath of office
to uphold the law and protect the
citizens, and who claim to be
"tough on crime"-would put
pressure on any branch of law


enforcement to not enforce the
law.
I can truthfully say that I have
never seen any city of Lawtey
police officers "hiding." They
don't need to, and it's doubtful
if even 25 percent of the speed-
ers are stopped. If you've driven
through Lawtey, you know where
they park most of the time and
it is not the least bit concealed.
If they did want to hide, where
would it be?
I think it's time that we give
credit to our law enforcement
officers, whether they're enforc-
ing traffic laws or arresting drug
dealers. They literally put their
lives on the line every time they
stop a speeding driver, because
they never know the driver's in-
tention or how far he may go to
avoid arrest.
Like most drivers, I have been
guilty of speeding. The last tick-
et I got was several years ago in
Baldwin and was issued by the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
I was running late for a funeral
and I didn't see the officer with
a radar gun, who was standing
on the sidewalk in a shady area.
Neither did I see the police cars
which were parked on a side
street behind some trees and
bushes. Needless to say, in a few
seconds I saw a police car behind
me with blue lights flashing. The
officer was polite, but he wasn't
too concerned that I was late for
a funeral. Was I angry that these
police cars were hidden? No, be-
cause the issue was not whether
they were hidden, but whether I
was speeding-and I was. Did
that fine serve as a deterrent to
make me a safer driver? You bet
it did.

Law enforcement officers who
enforce the law are not the "bad"
guys. They are helping to save
lives. Think about it, please.

The definition
of insanity
Dear Editor:
When you look it up, it says
"doing the same things over
and over and expecting differ-
ent results." Maybe that's why
Bradford County has had to Tely
on dipping into their savings or
"reserves" the last two years to
balance the budget. That prac-
tice won't get you very far if you
make a habit of it. Trust me, I
know from personal experience.
It's not hard to be financially
responsible. It takes dedication
and commitment, willpower and
learning how to say "no." Took
me a long time to figure it out.
Then I think about the county
employee who sits at the local
solid waste disposal site making
$10 an hour, smelling garbage
eight hours a day, in t heat,
cold and rain, with no raise in
nearly five years.
I wrote an editorial a few
weeks back that outlined some
concerns about where our tax
dollars are spent in a couple dif-
ferent areas. I never claimed to


be smart and all knowing... far
from it. But after 25 years in
the public safety business,'I do
know that it is entirely driven on
customer service. The rebuttal
by a particular county employee
was interesting to say. the least.
I'm curious that the department
head allows that. I wouldn't have
gotten away with that where I
work.
What that employee doesn't
know is that I do research and
development, and also consult
for other fire and rescue servic-
es. I'm working on a project now.
for a major metropolitan fire and
rescue department to come up
,vith a cost-efficient, but effec-
tive, fire truck for wildland fire-
fighting. They face a $13.5 mil-
lion deficit and they are looking
at anything to keep costs down.
He said a bunch... I had to look a
lot of those words up. I'm just a
public school guy.
It was stated that no real profit
is made for the county doing
inter-facility transfers, and it off-
sets loss. OK. How do you incur
loss? By spending more than you
bring in, that's how.
It was stated that they struc-
ture the transfer service in a
way that minimizes the risk of
overwhelming the emergency
response system by shuffling
ambulances. Really? Well it's
hard to move one from one area
to another when they are in Mac-


clenny, Jacksonville, Lake City
or Gainesville. That's a choice
they made to provide that ser-
vice.
That happened as early as this
past Friday. There are five pri-
vate ambulance services in the
area and four helicopter med;;
evac units'in North Florida that
handle these calls. That's what
those companies do. It seems'
now they are in so deep, if they''
don't do this service, they will-
operate in the red. In the mean:;!
time, while they are out chasing'
a dollar, you may have to wait,
on Union or Clay County fo'r'
service. Now another taxpayer-
funded service is burdened.
What if they are providing seri'
vice to their customers? How did.
they get there?
The labor union contract is one;
place to, look. As a member of ''
big labor union for 20 years, I've
studied them and I've never seen
such a sweetheart of a deal. Whd'
has a deal that states you will be'
provided a reclining chair and'
satellite or cable? Anyone? Or'
get paid extra for working on a'
holiday, which is fair, but to be'
provided a bank of holidays to:
get paid a lump sum for if youth
don't use them? Or attend 206;
hours for basic firefighter trainry-
ing and get paid $75 a month:

Editor's note:
The following letter sounds
a lot like Bradford County... If
you, as a reader, would like to
drop a few lines to this student,
then please send it to: Dionasio
Mendiola c/o Orchard View
Middle School, 35 S. Sheridan,
Muskegon, MI 49442.

Special
delivery from
Michigan
Dear Editor:


My name is Dionasio Men-
diola. I live in Muskegon, Mich.
I am 13 years old and I go to Or-
chard View Middle School. I like
to run in track and cross country.
One of my favorite things to do is
read. I have read a lot of books.
I am currently reading "The
Hunger Games." "The Hunger
Games" series is quite thrilling
and perhaps many of you have
read them. Spring break is com-
ing up soon and I cannot wait. I
am going to Florida for spring
break this year.
Muskegon is a pretty nice place
b;ut it got hit pretty hard by the
economy. It has suffered a great
deal of job loss and unemploy-
rent. We used to rely on indus-
tky and logging, but now both of
those have gone away. There are
not many jobs around here, but
There is enough to get people by.
We are not necessarily poor, but
we are not a rich community.
SOrchard View does not have
that much money, but ,we are not
poor, even though we are far from
a rich district. Our mascot is the
cardinal. I believe that cardinals
are majestic birds and are very
colorful,just like our school.
Even though Orchard View is
hot the greatest school in Mus-
,kegon, I am happy to go here. I
'have a lot of friends and some of
mny family goes here. I have lived
in and grew up in Orchard View
iand this is where I want to stay.
:- Anyway, my teacher, Mrs.
Dirkse, had us randomly pick
--states andItV Was: luckyenough tb
get Florida. We are writing letters
to one of the newspapers in that
state. We are all trying to learn
more about them. It would help a
lot if you could send me a post-
card or a letter. You do not have
to, but it would be really cool to
get something back. Thank you
for reading this and maybe I will
get your postcard.
Sincerely,
SDionasio Mendiola
Muskegon, Mich.


Please help

Oliver
Dear Editor:
Oliver is a seven year .old,
male, declawed, big gray
and white cat. Right before
Christmas, I adopted him out to
Dorothy, an older lady, who lives
in Gainesville. They have been
yery happy together. Late last
week she called me to tell me
that she had fallen and hurt her
pelvis. She was frightened that
she would lose him and asked
if I could help her. I offered to
board him for the two weeks
that she thought it would take to
heal. She told me that she didn't.
have much money and I told her
that I would take core of it. I
picked him up last Saturday and
took him to the vet where I had
boarded him before the adoption.
I thought it would be familiar
and easier on him. This past
week was busy and I didn't get
back to visit with him until this
past Saturday. When I walked
in I could see that he was doing
well. I petted him and loved him.
I told him that he was going back
home in a week and that I would
come by several times this week
to visit with'him.
As I left Oliver, I was happy
that he was handling the boarding
well and this would soon be over.
I called Dorothy to ask how she
was doing and she told me that
instead of two weeks it would
be at least a month before she
could go home. The silence that
came on the line was loud. I was
thinking what am I going to do
with Oliver for a month? As the
conversation continued, Dorothy
and I discussed possible solutions
for Oliver. She understood that
it wouldn't be good for Oliver
to be boarded for a month. But
she loves him. She told me that
he had brightened her life. We
discussed finding a foster home
for him or adopting him out to
someone else. She bravely said
that she could get another cat
when she returned home. I agreed


with'her that she could. As the
conversation came to a close she
was crying. I promised her that I
would keep in contact with her
and let her know what solution I
came up with for Oliver.
Oliver's situation is not unique.
In rescuing anirnals, we daily are
faced with not having a home
to temporarily place a dog or
cat in until they can be adopted.
Our own homes are filled up
and we usually have at least one
or two boarding at the vet. I am
constantly juggling dogs or cats
and praying that the one .that has
been there the longest is adopted.
What S.O.S.A. and Oliver
need is a foster home. S.O.S.A.
will provide all the supplies
necessary. If you can provide a
safe and loving home for Oliver
for a month, call me at 904-
796-0382, or email me at info@

for it? They are not firefighters.
That's not their job. Sure they re-
spond, but for EMS only. They
don't carry protective gear. Or
rake in just shy of $59,000 mak-
ing $11.50 an hour?
Columbia County hired a pri-
vate ambulance service to take
over EMS in their county last
year. They saved nearly $4 mil-
lion. The same company services
Santa Rosa County. It costs the
taxpayer $0. It is self sustaining.
Let's talk fire protection. Last
week, an article covered how
they got two fire trucks total-
ing $655,600. What they didn't
tell you is that It.was actually
$709,000. The county is respon-
sible for $53,400 of that. For a
department that's already blown
through two-thirds of its budget-
and we aren't halfway through
the budget year-I'm not sure

that is a wise move when you
could have shopped around and
found two vehicles that could do
the job for $300,000 less.
What's even more interest-
ing is that permission from the
commission to seek this grant
funding was asked for on Oct.
13, 2011. The deadline to sub-
mit was on Sept. 23,2011. They
had already submitted the grant
before they even asked for per-
mission to do so.
Even more interesting is that
they must certify that every driv-
er passes a physical exam com-
pliant with NFPA 1582 and have
a comprehensive driver training
program in place compliant with
NFPA 1002. To my knowledge,
no member has been through
this.
Don't take my word for it.
Look it up. It's easy to find on
the Web: "FEMA Assistance to
Firefighter Grants" then "Rules
and Tools."
We as taxpayers can't keep


hemorrhaging money for this
insanity. They can't keep getting
bailouts from their "reserves" or
other counties. In the-financial
world they call that moral haz-


ard. What's to stop them from
doing it over and over again?

Police: woman
stuffed lipstick
in purse
BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
A 24-year-old Lake But-
ler woman was arrested after
she tried to steal lipstick from
'Stirke's Walgreens, according
* to a Starke police report.
Shianne Idell Elixson was
c,'harged with retail theft. That
charge is unproven and Elixson
is presumed innocent until adju-
dicated guilty by a court.
According to a police report,
on March 13 a Walgreens as-
sociate saw Elixson enter the
store and take two containers
of lipstick and one package of
lip balm from store shelves.
She then went into a restroom,
,.removed the makeup from its
packaging and put the three
'items in her purse. When she
walked out of the restroom, a
Walgreens employee was wait-,
ing for her. Accroding to the
report, the 24-year-old took the
cosmetics out of .her purse and
handed them over to the associ-
ate.The retail value of the items
was $12.97.

Brothers
argue over
TV channels,
1 arrested
A disagreement over what
television channel to watch es-
calated into a brawl that sent one
Lawtey man to jail March 11.
Reginald Dennard Jackson Jr.,
J 19, was charged with battery.
: According to a sheriff's office
report, Jackson entered the living
room of his mother's house and
.started arguing with a brother
about which television channel
to watch. The 19-year-old alleg-
edly struck the younger brother
in the face and then shoved a
second brother to the ground.
'Jackson and the second brother
then got into a fight. During tifat

Deputies:
man shoot
first, asks
question later
Bradford deputies arrested a
Sampson City man after they
said he fired a shotgun toward
three men.
Mark'Hurst, 36, of Sampson
City was charged with three
counts of aggravated assault
with a deadly. weapon without
intent to kill.
The allegations against Hurst
are unproven and he is presumed
innocent until adjudicated guilty
by a judge.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, during the evening
of March 9, the boyfriend of
Hurst's sister tried to enter the
sister's mobile home and found
the front door locked. The boy-
friend also resided in the mobile
home.
While the boyfriend walked to
' the rear of the structure to check
the back door, his two acquain-
tances remained by the front en-
tryway. The boyfriend found the
back door also locked.
After the boyfriend rejoined
his friends on the front porch,
Hurst appeared from around
the rear of the trailer and fired a
shotgun round in the direction of
the three men on the porch.
Hurst then asked the trio,
"What are you all doing up
there?"
Hurst's sister then appeared
and argued with the boyfriend,
telling him he had to move out.
According to%,the suspect's
sister, she received a phone
Call around 8:30 p.m. from her
boyfriend asking her if he could
bring some friends over. The
girlfriend said no because she
did not know the men.
Sometime later, from her
mother's residence, she saw two
vehicles drive up to her trailer
and three men get out. Hurst
resided in a shed in his sister's
back yard. The mother called
Hurst to ask who the three men
were.at the front door. The girl-
friend said after she walked over


to her home, she saw her brother
fire a round into the air and ask
"Who is by the door?"
According to the report, the
suspect admitted to firing the
round. He told a deputy that af-
ter discharging the shot, he took
the spent cartridge over to this
mother's house and gave it to his
niece so she could play with it.

According to a sheriff's office
report, on March 17, Lee and
his mother got into an argument
about the Facebook comment.
He demanded that she remove
the negative post, but she re-
fused. Lee then allegedly picked
up the garlic powder and heaved
it at his mother, hitting her in the
face and cutting her.
Another family member
claimed she tried to call law
enforcement during the ver-
bal altercation, but the suspect
snatched the phone out of the
family member's hand.
Lee told a deputy he acci-
dently cut his mother's face with
one of his fingernails. He also
admitted to throwing the garlic
powder, but said he threw it at a
wall, not at his mother.

Report:
suspect hides
from deputies,
bitten by dog
A 57-year-old Forsyth Road
man was arrested after he. hid
,from deputies in the woods and
was bitten by the sheriff's office
patrol dog.
Domingo Torres was charged
with aggravated assault and with
battery.
The charges against Torres
are unproven and he is presumed
innocent until adjudicated guilty
by a court.
According to a sheriff's of-
fice report, on March 18 depu-
ties were dispatched to the area
of Forsyth Road (Southeast 21't
Avenue) and Meng Dairy Road
(Southeast 1091t Street) regard-
ing a domestic assault.
The suspect's live-in girl-


friend told deputies that Torres
struck her with his hand, threat-
ened to beat her with a hammer
and also threatened to burn her
house down. She added that be--
fore deputies arrived, the boy-
friend fled on his bicycle.
Deputies searched the area for
the man, but could not find him.
They then deployed the office's
patrol dog "Bara." The K-9 soon
located the suspect hiding under
his'bicycle in a pine stand. In the
,course of the tracking, the dog
bit the suspect.
Deputies took Torres to a hos-
pital for evaluation prior to tak-
ing his to jail.


Sheriff's Capt. Brad Smith
said deputies have pursued Tor-
res before under similar circum-
stances, but until now were un-
able to find him.
"He would get into a dispute
with his girlfriend, then take off
on his bicycle and hide in the
woods before we arrived," said
Smith. "After we'left, he would
go back to the residence and
sometimes even batter her. That
was his game."
However the addition of Bara
to the office has given deputies
a new tool.
"The game has changed,"
Smith said.

Luke Stallings
IRVINE, Calif.-Luke Stallings,.
51, passed away on Sunday, Feb.
26, 2012, in Irvine, Calif., follow-
ing a short illness. His daddy, who
still does not fly, made sure Num-
ber I-L's momma and the other L's
were at his side.
Born in Jacksonville, then mov-
ing to Gainesville at an early age,
Luke claimed Gainesville as his true
home. He was an alumnus of Lake
Forest Elementaty School, Howard
Bishop Middle School arid Eastside
High School. He was always and
forever an avid Gator fan. Awarded
a Board of Trustees scholarship to
SFCC in 1978, he attended for one
semester before a scholarship in,
dance took him north to the Chicago
area.
Ultimately pursuing his dream of
music and theatre, Luke spent most,
of his life as a performing artist in
national and international touring
companies including "Sugar Ba-
bies," "42nd Street," and "Cats."
A major highlight in his career was
finally being cast in the Broadway
production of "Cats." But his hap-
piest role was performing the role
of Rum Tum Tugger when "Cats"
opened the new Center for the
Performing Arts Jan. 6, 1992, in
Gainesville. He was loved then, he
is loved now.
Luke is survived by: his par-
ents, Harry and Margaret Stallings
of Gainesville; Number 2-L, sister
Lissa (Tim) Stallings-Boone of Bel-
leville. Ill.. Number 3-L, sister Lauri
Stallings and her partner Richard
Carvlin of Atlanta Ga., Number
4-L, brother Linc Stallings of Hi-
wassee, Ga., and other parts of this
great United States, "lumber 5-L
"bonus sister" Leslie McGregorof
Atlanta. Ga.; nephew Jarrod Boone'
of Ames Iowa; niece Ashley Boone
of Chesterfield Mo.; plus numer-
ous aunts, uncles, cousins and many
great-cousins.
A friend of brother Linc once
mentioned how close Luke's family
was. Someone asked, "Well, how
close?" The answer was "Ridicu-
lously close."
Luke was preceded in death by:
his maternal great-grandfather P.M.
Barefoot of Starke; paternal grand-
parents, Tom and Esther Stallings
of Waldo: maternal grandmother,
Juanita Barefoot Dinkins; adopted
grandfather, Charles Dinkins of
Starke; and maternal grandfather.
Simeon DeWitt Phillips of Mac-
clenny.
Having brought immeasurable
joy and kindness to so many people
in all walks of life, a celebration
of Luke's life will take place' on
Saturday, March 31. from 11..a.m.n
until 2 p.m., at the Thelma Boltin
Center, 516 N.E. Second Ave. in
Gainesville. Friends are finvited to
join Luke's family and share hap-
py memories of a person who had
a heart of gold and a smile bigger
than life.
A graveside service will take
place at 4 p.m. the same day at Cros-

of flowers, donations may be made

Indians

12-2 win

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Pitcher Amber Skipper gave
up just two runs off of seven hits
in the Keystone Heights softball
team's 12-2, six inning win over
District 5-4A opponent Santa Fe
on March 15 in Keystone.
Keystone (9-6) scored three
runs-two of which were un-
earned-in the first inning, which
would prove to be all the Indians
would need in improving to 6-1
in district play.
Santa Fe was in a three-way tie
for first in the district with Key-
stone and Bradford prior to the
loss to the Indians.
Ashley Maynard, who was
2-for-4, reached on a single in
the first, while Chelsea Harvin
reached on an error. Kelsey Wa-
ters delivered a single that scored
Maynard, while a passed ball and
subsequent error allowed Har-
vin and Waters to score, putting
Keystone up 3-0.
The Raiders made it a one-run
game, scoring two runs in the top
of the fourth off of a single by
Tiffany Pena.
Waters, who was 2-for-4 with
two RBI, led off the bottom half
of the fourth with a single and
scored on Taylor Semione's sac-
rifice bunt.
Keystone added three more
runs in the fifth to go up 7-2.
Lyndsay Johnson was hit by a
pitch to lead off the inning, while
Skipper was awarded first on
catcher's interference. Maynard
followed with an infield single
that loaded the bases. A bunt by
Harvin scored Johnson, while
Kayla Walker hit a double to
score Skipper and Maynard.
The Indians ended the game
in the sixth by building a 10-
run lead to enforce the mercy
rule. Vanessa Munoz was .hit
by a pitch to lead off the inning,
while Rachel Wells arid Johnson
hit back-to-back .singles to load
the bases. That set the stage for
Skipper's two-run double into
left-center.
A Santa Fe error on a'pop-up
by Maynard allowed' Johnson to
score to make it a 10-2 game.
Skipper scored on a ground


out by Waters before Maynard
scored the game-ending run on a
wild pitch.
The Raiders had two runners
in scoring position with two outs
in the fifth, but Claire Wilson
struck out looking to end the in-
ning.
Santa Fe loaded the bases with
two outs in the sixth, but Skipper
forced Jenna Ga'iney to ground
out to Harvin at short for the
third out.
Skipper (9-6) gave up no walks
and struck out nine.

game against Columbia at 7 p.m.

NCA volleyball player earns

Florida Christian scholarship .


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Reelonal News/Sports Editor
Northside Christian Academy
senior Cheyenne Hourigan re-
ceived a volleyball scholarship
offer from Florida Christian
College in Kissimmee, making
her the first-ever Northside stu-
dent athlete to get such an op-
pottunity.
"One of the things I have
heard in the nine years that I've
been here- that our school has
been here-is, 'I won't go there,
because my kid can't go to col-
lege for a sport.' Cheyenne is the.
first of what I hope to be many to
break that tradition," Northside
Principal Toby Roehm said.
Hourigan, a 6-0 middle hitter
who had 73 kills, 75.5 blocks
and 453 assists this past season,
said she hadn't had much time to
reflect on being the school's first
athlete to receive such an offer,
but she was overwhelmed none-
theless.
"It's just a great opportunity,"-
Hourigan said following her
March 15 signing ceremony. "I
hope there are many more (after
me)."
Getting such a chance didn't
seem possible, Hourigan admit-
ted.
: "I picked up my first volley-
ball in ninth grade," she said.
"I've never played club or any-
thing. I've just played in high
school."
However, Florida Christian
College head coach Jim Butski
sees in 'Hourigan a player who
has the potential to continue to
develop throughout her colle-
giate career.
"She's an athlete," Butski
said. "It's easy to coach athletes.
It's hard to coach people to be
athletic, but it's easy to coach
athletes to play a sport."
Butski said Hourigan's big-
gest adjustment to the collegiate
game will be adapting to the
quicker pace of practices and
games. H
Also, Hourigan will have to


The Northside Christian Academy boys' basketball team won the South Eastern
Christian Conference West championship. Pictured are: (front, I-r) coach Lewis
Mabrey, Dalton McClung, Spencer Bunch, Duke Atteberry, Dustin Elder, Jon
Norman, Coach Larry Parrish, Cole Temes (back, I-r) coach Jason Pilcher, Sean
Hanson, Bobby Atteberry, Jerry Atteberry, Cordell Reed and Dillon Wilkison.

learn to rely more on just her
physical ability.
"It's not all about brawn,"
Butski said. "It's a lot about brain
in college volleyball. She has the
physical ability, but learning the
game will be the next step for
her. As a student of the game,
she'll be able to understand it
and be able to exploit the weak-
nesses of her opponents."
Northside coaches Alicia
Etheridge and Glenda Parrish
said Butski is getting a player
who will dedicate herself to do-
ing whatever is asked of her.
"She takes it serious when
she's out there," Parrish said.
"She gives more than 100 per-
cent whenever she's out there
on the court. She'll push herself.
Even with an injury, she'll push
herself."
Etheridge spoke of a tourna-
ment Northside played in three
years 'ago. in which Hourigan
broke her elbow after falling to


the court. Hourigan, though, did
not tell her coaches anything
was wrong and continued to play
until the tournament's end.
"That's just the type of player
she is," Etheridge said. "She has
the desire and drive to excel."
Hourigan said she enjoyed
her visit to the Florida Christian
campus. To her, the school pre-
sented a "big, Christian family"
that went out of its way to be
helpful.
"I immediately fell in love
with it," Hourigan said.
As excited as Hourigan was
during her signing ceremony-
"I'm shaking," she said-her
Northside coaches were just as
excited.
"We think this is a great op-
portunity for her to grow in her
Christian walk and her educa-
tion," Etheridge said. "'It's just
a wonderful opportunity for her
and our school."

Northside. defeated Bruns-

highly favored Beaches Chapel
team out of Neptune Beach, but
stayed with Beaches for most of
the game until Beaches went on
a 10-2 run to extend a five-point
lead with more than two minutes
to play.
The Eagles finished second
overall in the SECC and had
two players named to the all-
conference team: seniors Duke
Atteberry and Sean Hanson.
Northside's girls' team en-
tered the tournament as the num-
