Veterans
flag flap
comes to

city meeting


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor
SLinda Jenkins came
before the Lake Butler City
Commission at the recent city
:council meeting to address
her concerns on a letter to
the editor that was submitted
to the Union County Times
by City Manager Dave
-Mecusker. Jenkins said 'that
-she wanted to publicly make
some corrections to what
-she claimed" were the many
untruths that Mecusker wrote.
"My Mom and Dad raised
me, that if you tell something,
tell it right and tell it true," she
said."
Mecusker's letter to the
editor was a response to a paid
advertisement in the Times by
William Fischer in which he
complained about the city's
flags not being lowered on
Memorial Day.
SJenkins claimed that in the
letter written by Mecusker,
ih said that Fischer and Sam
Jenkins were friends several
times.
"I wouldn't call them-
best friends," she said, "but
they share a common bond,

She added that in the letter

that was cancelled. Jenkins
made offered what she said
were three corrections to the
manager's statements.
"The VFW didn't cancel
anything," she said. "The
American Legion does the
Memorial Day ceremonies,
not the VFW. There has
never been a parade on
Memorial Day. It's a day of
remembrance."
Jenkins said that the letter
placed the responsibility
of the city flags not being
lowered on Sam Jenkins. That
he should have taken it upon
himself to lower the flags
and that he was given that
responsibility todo so. Jenkins
disagreed by saying that it was
Mecusker's responsibility to
assign someone to lower the
flags and to ensure it had been
.done. Jenkins also included

We need

more

goats

BY BASIL BACTAWAR
County Extension Director/
Agent. Union

Several farms in Union
County keep goats as a hobby
or just to keep down the weeds.
Some are commercial farms that
produce milk and meat or meat
alone. Union County holds good.
potential to increase its goat
production.
According to the United
States Department of Agriculture
Census (2007), the goat inventory
increased by twenty-four (24)
percent over 2002 Census. Meat
goats made up 82 percent of all
goats in the country in 2011.
The increase in goat production
is driven by an increasing
demand for goat meat. Several
newspaper articles have noted the
growing demands over the past
ten years. For example in 2001,
the Boston Globe reported on the
"Growing Markets for Goats."
In 2003, Daily Oklahoma ran
an article captioned "Goat Meat
finds Suppbrt in Oklahoma."
The following year the Chicago
Tribune published "A Growing
demand for Meat Goats." Even
the Kentucky Living Magazine
featured the "Growing Goat
market during 2006." The
growing demand for goat meat
appeared to be a trend across
North America. In 2007, The
Globe and Mail, Canada's
national newspaper carried an
article on "Goats are not for
cheese anymore."
The increase in goat numbers
is evident in Florida as goat
production increased by 180
percent from 2002 to 2006 with
an estimated inventory of 75,000
head.
The USA was a net exporter
of goat meat before 1990. Export
of this product stopped because
of an increase in demand within
the county. Consequently the US
became a goat meat importing
country. For example, the USA
imported approximately 750,000
goat carcasses in 2006. More
than ninety (90) percent of this
import came from Australia.
Although the US Department
of Agriculture's National
Agricultural Statistics Services
reported approximately 2.7
million meat goats on farms
in 200', American producers
were u&fable to meet the local
demand for goat- meat. The
.growing ethic population drives
the increase in demand with a
preference for goat-meat. They
are mainly Hispaniqs, Asian and
people from the Middle East.
What does this mean for goat
producers or potential goat
producers in Unioh County?
The demand for goat meat
is "projected to remain;.strong
because the ethnic population is
expected to growi. Tbhs is a good
opporturiity for farmrsiwith goats,
but it is important that producers
minimize their production .:ost
without adversely affecting.
production efficiencies so as to
compete with the.ilp ported frozen
product. One (if the advantages
producers have is .consumers
prefer fresh goat m'at instead of
the frozen product. Additionally
producers need to understand the
market so as to0add val'ie to the
goat they produced.

Heroes reach


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor

Dennis MNcLaughlin, John
Gerlaugh, Troy McLehaney,
Ben Maenza and Barb Christie
visited Lake Butler on June 11,
marking the second day of their
cross-country ride on recumbent
trikes. Lake Butler was the first
location on their long list of
areas to pass through, beginning
in St. Augustine and ending in
California. After only a few short
weeks, they arrived in Texas. to
celebrate their 4th of July holiday.
The team kicked off their
'celebration by visiting the 9/11
Memorial Veterans' Park in
Bryan-College Station, Texas.
They posed in front of a large
hunk of metal, a piece of the
Twin Towers.
"How appropriate since the
Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund
reaches out to help post 9/11
Marines," said Christie.
With a long way yet to go,
Christie said that there was a
lot of challenges, maintenance,
injuries and weather to endure
but that they were hanging in
there.
The purpose of the trip is to
raise money for and awareness
of the Injured Marine Semper
Fi Fund. The fundraising goal is
$1,000,000. So far, $50,806 has
been raised. These funds help
wounded veterans like Maenza,
who is a double amputee veteran.
Maenza lost both of his legs in
Afghanistan. Pedaling his way
to California with his arms, he
hopes to inspire people across
the country with his effort.
"When I was in the hospital,
the Semper Fi Fund did a whole
lot for me. It took care of my
family and me when I needed it
the most," said Maenza.
The team is projected to arrive
at their final destination on Aug.


that can add value to the meat
produced on your farm:
* Consider producing and
selling goats when their meat
consumption increases e.g.
during Easter and Ramadan
(Muslim'holiday).
* Use handling and harvesting
procedures e.g. Muslims prefer
Halal and Jews prefer kosher
techniques.
* Organic raised goats and/or
goats produced under an on-farm
food safety program.
* Direct marketing by arranging
to have animals slaughtered,
cut, wrapped and delivered in
accordance with consumers'
request or preference.
* Build a list of clients who return
to purchase you goat or goat meat
based on customers' satisfaction
and loyalty.
Goat production presents a
good opportunity for farms to
target the markets mentioned
above and to diversify their farm

extreme lengths to try to avoid having to make decisions in life.
However, there are some choices we simply must make. We
must decide whether we will suffer with the people of God or.
indulge in sin. The faithful will be like Moses who chose to
side with the people of God rather than, "enjoy the passing
pleasures of sin" (Hebrews 11:25). We must also decide-
whether we will be a friend of the Lord or a friend of the world
because, "Whoever therefore, wants to be a friend of the world
makes himself an enemy of God" (James 4:4). One cannot be'
both a friend of God and a friend of the world, we must choose.
Jesus said, "He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who
does not gather with Me scatters abroad" (Matthew 12:30),.
What choice will we make?

". Right at $812,000 has been
approved for the county but I
look for that figure to increase,"
said Smith.
Business' owners and
residents who sustained losses
can apply for assistance by
registering online at vwww.
disasterassistance.gov, by web
mobile device at m.fema.gov
or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA

.for the hearing, and speech
impaired. The toll free numbers
will operate from 7 a.m. to 10
p.m., 7 days a week until further
notice.
Other issues related to
Tropical Storm Debby include
the increased amount of local
wildlife in uncommon areas
due to the amount of flooding.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) issued advisories to the
public to be cautious and aware
of snakes, alligators and other
misplaced wildlife.
Information on various
snakes, both venomous and
non-venomous can be found at
MyFWC.com,
The FWC's nuisance alligator
hotline can be reached at
866-FWC-gator (866-392-
4286) or an informational
brochure can be downloaded at
MyFWC.com/Alligator.
In addition, the issue of
the increased population of
mosquitoes due to standing
water is soon to be addressed.
Smith said that the county is
in the process of getting an
airplane to spray. This would
provide better area coverage.
A second spray would follow.
Until then, residents should take
the proper Pideltti'oris to protect
themselves from insect bites.

"The frequency of boating

that can be worn while fishing or
enjoying the sun,and they do not
interfere with boating activities.
Accidents can occur without
warning, and if for some reason
someone ends up in the water,
quite often it's too late to put on
a life jacket.
"The leading type of accident
continues to be boaters colliding
with other boats or objects," said
Bickel. "With the number of
boaters in our beautiful state, it's
important to pay close 'attention
to everything that's going on
around your boat."
Statistics repeatedly show that
boaters who have taken a basic
boating safety class are less
likely to be involved in a serious
boating accident.

A manager for Blue Cross

that his company is not in-

county's health insurance

that in a conference call with

"We had already sent them
a questionnaire," said Jack-

it clear that based on that in-

county commissioners voted

crease in premiums beginning
in July 2012, Smith said he
wanted to take another look at

In addition, some cotn--

problems with AvMed, in-
cluding difficulty in getting
prescriptions paid and getting
coverage for certain health
care providers.
However Jackson said she
thought the problem county
workers were encountering
laid not with the insurance
company but with the service
providers.
With Blue Cross, the coun-

increased 46 percent from

in 2011. That hike prompted
the switch to AvMed.

Stern family's roots now run deep on Bradford farm


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
If the move from Rockford,
Ill., to Starke was prompted by
the desire to find a better place to
raise a family, one would have to
say the Stern family found what
it was looking for as members
of the family have occupied the
same piece of land for the last
100 years.
Three generations of family
members currently live on
property off of S.R. 16 East
that was originally purchased
by Augustus Stern in 1912.
Roland-the grandson of
Augustus-and his wife,
Lucinda, raised their daughters,
there and live in the house
Roland's father, Harry, built.
Ronda Curtis, one of Roland and
Lucinda's daughters, lives on
the land. She and her husband,
Curtis, have lived there for more
than 30 years.
The fifth generation of the
-family is establishing itself
on .the land .Ronda and Curtis
Crawford's daughter Amber
Reichert and her husband,
Hunter, currently have a home
* there, while the Crawfords'other
daughter, Ashley, and her fiance,
Derek Browning, are building a
home there.
Also, Austin Crawford is
getting ready to build a home
there as well.
For his part, Roland said
the fact the family has lived
continuously on the 60-plus
acres for 100 years is nothing
"earth shaking," but his quiet,
reserved manner does not hide
the fact it is something he's
proud of.
Lucinda, who was a north
Georgia lady before meeting and
marrying Roland, has taken to
the land and seems truly honored
to be a part of the bond between
it and the Stern family.
"We love the land," Lucinda
said. "That sounds corny, I
know, but we do. One thing
we continue to be amazed at is
that we are blessed that God has
given us this piece of land to be
stewards of. We try 'to do the
best we can with it."
Though Roland once made
Lucinda promise years ago that if
anything ever happened.to him,
she would take their daughters
and move back to Georgia to be
close to her family, Lucinda has
since recanted.
"This is definitely home," she
said.
It took many miles for the
Stern family to find home-
from Germany to New York,

Blindness not an


obstacle for 5-year-old


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
On stage,5-year-old Kameron
McKinney Lyons seemed no
different from the rest of the
Starke Academy of Dance pre-
dance tap students, but it became
evident to the crowd at the recital
that she wasn't quite like the
other children.
"No one knew she was blind
until she came off the stage,
and they brought her to us with
her cane," said Phyllis Warren,
.Lyons'aunt who is affectionately
known as "Nana."
Emma Theus, the 12-year-old
daughter of Starke Academy
of Dance owner Laura Theus,
worked one-on-one with Lyons'
in class and was on stage with
,lr at the recital to assist as
4ell. She said other than her the.
absence of sight, Lyons was no
different from any other student,
,n the pre-dance tap class.
"It's awesome, I think, because


Kameron Lyons performs

Emma Theus.


she doesn't even get to see any of
her other classmates in her dance
class, but she's really good at
listening," Theus said, adding,
"She can always do the steps like
every other classmate. It just lets
her blend in really well because
she can do all the moves."
Being blind may be the only
way in which Lyons differs from
other 5-year-olds. Like a lot of
young children, she can show a
fierce determination in wanting
something.
"She's got this go-get-it
attitude, and it's like nothing's
going to stop her," Warren
said. "We kind of look at it as
a reversal of the doctors saying
she'd never be able to., Her
attitude is, 'You can't stop me.
I'm going after it.'"
Lyons, the daughter of
SMaryann Lyons and Brenda
McKinney, plans to continue
taking dance lessons' and also
wants to learn to play the pian6.
"She's amazing," Warren said.
"She astonishes all of us."
The child who is living life
to its fullest at such a young age
entered the world early, born
premature at 24 weeks. She was
diagnosed with bilateral retinal
detachment due to retinopathy
of prematurity, which describes
abnormal blood vessel
development in the retinas.
"At one time, we thought
maybe there was some light that
she could see," Warren said,
"but they determined she can't
see anything."
Lyons' premature birth created,
other complications as well. She
had to have open-heart surgery
and at one point went three days
without eating at 18 months of
age.
SDoctors didn't give Lyons
much of a chance of surviving,
but family members didn't give
up.
"We prayed," Warren said.
"Here she is today. She's just as
perfect-as-me :and you-other
than she can't see-and smart as
a whip."
Laura Theus said she received
an email from Brenda McKinney
inquiringabout tap-dance lessons
for Lyons. Theus said she was

SAugustus Stern (seated, second from right) moved his family from Illinois to
Bradford County in 1912. He is seated between children Fred and Elsie, while his
Nyvife, Bertha, is seated at the far left. Standing in the back (I-r) are sons Bill, Harry
,and' Frank.


STERN
Continued from 1B

That's what Daddy did."
Roland's father, Harry, was 19
or 20 when the family packed up
and moved to Bradford County.
"I asked Daddy one time,
'Why'd you all move down
iherd?' Daddy said that wasn't
:any place for a family to live,"
Roland said.
.There were relatives already


living in the area, plus a lot of
Germans lived in Lawtey in the
early 1900s, Lucinda said.
"A lot of the Germans moved
down here during World War
I .because of persecution up
(north)-well, everywhere,"
Lucinda said. "Evidently, down
-here it wasn't as pronounced as
it was up there."
The family cut timber on
the land the descendants live
on today and built a two-story
house, which is behind the
house Roland and Lucinda live


in today. A sawmill operation
was established on site as well.
Lucinda said Roland's father cut
timber used in building many
homes in Starke and the Kingsley
Lake area. In fact, Harry Stern
cut the timber used'for the old
Strickland Landing on Kingsley
Lake, she said.
Timber was not the family's
own business. Strawberries
were grown and shipped via
rail out of Lawtey. Roland said
strawberry buyers would gather
on Sunday, dressed in coats and


ties and drinking beer.
"That was acceptable to do
that," Roland said.
"Nookie Wainwright used
to tell us that was always a big
deal out here on the Stern farm,"
Lucinda said. "Evidently,.a lot
of strawberry buyers were of
German descent, for whatever
reason."
Another big deal on the Stern
farm was the grist mill. Roland
said he remembers people
visiting the farm up through his
days in high school, waiting to
get their corn made into grits or
meal.
"There would be people lined
up here," Roland said. 'They'd
be lined up all the way back out
to the road, waiting on getting
just a little bit of maybe half a
bushel or bushel. You didn't
want to grind too much ahead of
time. They'd come back two or
three times a year to do that."
The family also grew sugar
cane-making its own syrup-
as well as another crop when
the area wasn't experiencing
drought conditions.
"It's hard to' believe now,
but they even raised rice here,"
Roland said.
The farm has always been
home for Roland, but he did
live elsewhere for a time.
Circumstances dictated that,
but he always knew he would
return.

Making a living,
starting a family
Roland went to forestry school
in Lake City after graduating
from high school, with his father
cutting and selling timber to
raise the money to cover the
school costs.
"He hitch-hiked back and
forth to Lake City," Lucinda
said. "He'd stay there through
the week. Every weekend, he
would hitch-hike back home."
From there, Roland went to
Georgia, which was strictly a
work-related decision. He said
there were no jobs to be had near
home.
"I had to make a living,"
Roland said.
Lucinda quickly added, "He
was seeking a wife."


Roland Stern's parents, Harry and Leona Stern.


That was not the reason, of
course, but Roland did end up
with a wife. He was working for
Georgia Craft, and Lucinda's
brother worked for him.
Lucinda's brother was building
a house, and Roland helped in
cutting the timber on herfamily's
property for the house.


"They came up here after
work, and most of the time after
dark," Lucinda said. "They were
down there cutting those trees
and hauling them to the wood
yard. That's how we met.
"Our children are still amazed.
Six months after we met, we

Rainy-day
help shows
that chivalry
is not dead
Dear Editor:
'Up'on leaving work in Gaines-
ville in the late afternoon of
Monday, June 25, during a hor-
rific downpour caused by Tropi-
cal Storm Debby, I noticed with
great surprise that one of my tires
was just about flat. I went to the
nearest store with an air machine,
but couldn't even use it as that
area had about a foot of rainwater
collecting there.
I went inside th next store to
get change for their machine. I
told the clerk I hoped their ma-
chine worked as my tire was just
ao out flat1 A young man in his
early 20s who was behind me in
line said, "You're going to pump
air in the rain? Where are you?
I can help." I told him thanks.
and that I had an umbrella to
hold over him. He went outside
to tell his driving partner at the
gas pumps that he was going to
help nre.
As I stood there with the um-
brella while he put air in the tire,
'I mentioned that I had to drive
to Keystone Heights. He said he
was .from Keystone also, told me
where he lived and asked in what
part of Keystone I lived.
I apologized because he was
still getting a'little wet, even
with me shielding him with the
Umbrella. Good-naturedly, he re-
plied that he didn't mind; that he
loves the rain, and that he'd run
in rain like we were experienc-
ing at the time. (He did look like
he played football, as a matter of
fact.)
SHe told me to check for a slow
leak in my tire by' putting soap
on' it. Wherever the leak was,
the soap would bubble. I told
him thanks so much; he told me
-you're welcome and wished me
a great evening. I wished him the
same.
This sweet, young man just
made my day, and I wish I had
asked his name. I am hoping he
will see this letter in youirnews-
-paper and realize how much his
help was appreciated.

silver linings, and this,was in-

refreshing

Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Bradford
County Girls' Club, I would
like to extend a sincere hand
of appreciation to The Starke
Women's Club. The wonderful
Members of The Starke Women's
Club have generously provided
refreshments for each weekly
after-school meeting. Words
cannot convey the difference
it made in both the meetings at
the high school and the middle
school.
We are funded for this program
through Florida Works, and as
with most grants, food is not an
allowable expense. Having a
snack and drink at each meeting
has been such a blessing. The
girls would come to the meetings
anxious to see what delectable
treat awaited them. It made
for a more receptive and fun
atmosphere. Bradford County is
very fortunate to have a "caring"
organization whose Members
will take the time to make a
difference in the community.
Thank you all very much.

Take a stand
for Ten Com-
mandments

Dear Editor:
Here in Bradford County and
all across the nation, the people
who believe in God and realize
that this nation was instituted
by and in accordance with that
belief have been duped. The
.first, and send paragraphs in
the Declaration of Independence
solidify the fact that we
established a relationship with
God right from the beginning.
Over time, however, we have
had many of our rights stripped
from us. We have been directed
by government to restrict our
rights, of prayer and displays
of religious beliefs to where
government permits.
'The citizens of the United
States have stood by in silence as
our government has become more
and more secular. The proponents
of making our government more
secular- have simply misused
the First Amendment to the
Constitution by claiming that it
calls for a separation of church
and state, a phrase found nowhere
in the Constitution. In fact,
however, the First Amendment
does no such thing. The First
Amendment protects th'e people
from government. The First
Amendment doesn't prohibit
the people from anything. It's
only purpose is to prohibit
government from interfering with
the unalienable rights granted td
the people by the creator.
Most people don't actually
read the First Amendment, they
just believe the people who take
it out of context and use it to take
away our rights. Read it here
.'and decide for yourself who is
prohibited and who is protected.
The first Amendment is the
first presentation in the Bill of
Rights and reads as follows:
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof: or abridging


the freedom of speech, or of the
press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to
petition the government for a
redress of grievances".
The people who have taken so
many of our religious rights from
us have used only the first part
of the sentence and put a period
where there is only a comma.
We believers have simply
accepted and/or cowardly put
up with this travesty of justice
and blame government instead
of standing tall and petitioning
the government for a redress of a
major grievance.
Right now our county is
faced with a lawsuit for having
the audacity to claim.our rights
and placing a privately funded
monument displaying the Ten
Commandments at our county
courthouse. Since the Ten
Commandments are.cut in stone
in the Supreme Court building
in Washington D.C., one would
wonder why the same rules do
not apply at the county level.
In this primarily Christian
Community, there is a movement
to back down and remove this
monument. If we do so we will
have become the cowardly lion.

Dear Editor:
My name is Rupert Geiger.
I was born to Sumpter Earl
"Buster" and Mable Geiger on
Geiger Road in Starke in 1958.
Our family had a 40-acre farm.
In 1965 my dad sold two 10-
acre lots and told the two men
that they could make payments.
He died three days later. It was
soon after his passing that we
lost out 20 acres and our home
to the bank. I thought our house
was paid for. My brother went
to live with a cousin. My three
sisters and I moved to Lakeland
to the Florida Baptist Children's
Home where we lived until we
each turned 18, then we went out
on our own.
I still think of Starke as my
hometown. I subscribe Lo the
paper, and try to vacation in
Starke at least once a year with
my sisters and my one brother.
.When we are there, whether it's
'the Best Western, the little ice
cream shop (which we have to
go to every night), Cedar River
or any of the hamburger joints,
everyone is always friendly and
makes you feel like family.
Mom died in 2010. We buried
her on Kingsley Lake with my
Dad. I have less than 10 years to
work. The good Lord willing, if
He lets me live that long, I would
love to retire in Starke.

Dear Editor:
'During vacation Bible school
and the flooding, an electric
pole fell (but was held up by the
wires). It was across the street
from the First Baptist Church

out and realized the wires went
to our church and vacation Bible
school was going on, they parked
a truck to hold up the pole until
VBS was over that day, so we
could have electricity. Thank you

THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012 TELEGRAPH, TIMES & MONITOR B SECTION


Iive generations of the Stern family have lived on a farm in Bradford County since 1912. Roland Stern-the
grandson of Augustus and Bertha Stern arid son of Harry and Leona Stern-and his wife, Lucinda, lived there
along with children and grandchildren. Pictured are: (front, I-r) grandson Austin Crawford, Katlyn Crews
(Austin's girlfriend), grandsons Charlie Knox and Kevin Knox, Lucinda and Roland Stern, grandson Marcus
Knox, daughters Robin Knox and Ronda Crawford, granddaughters Amber Reichert and Ashley Crawford, (back,

c:Roland said he told Lucinda
before they got married they
would be moving to Florida.
He wasn't sure when, but it was
going to happen.
i'That was always a priority,"
Lucinda said. "I knew going into
the marriage that I would have to
leavehome. He just didn't know
(my) family would be visiting so
nruch."
-Lucinda and Roland both
laughed at that, with Roland
saying, "It's bad whenever all.
ygur in-laws like you." "
elhe year Roland and Lucinda
moved to Bradford County was
1969. Roland bought 30 acres of
the family land from his father,
and he and Lucinda lived in a
trailer with their daughters.
Unfortunately, two weeks
after they moved from Georgia,
Roland's father died. Lucinda;
though, did have the chance
to form a special bond with
Roland's mother, Leona. It
helped her make the transition
of living in a new place. Lucinda
recalled how, it rainedrfor 17.
straight ,days. v-when-.she and
Roland moved, and how their
septic tank flooded.
Her first impression of her
nev home was not favorable.
"'I didn't like it at all,"
Lucinda admitted. "In fact,-
kind of became .a hermit. We
kept (Roland's) mother after his
daOdy died. We kept her a lot:
:I lIked that. I liked being able
to pust stay .in our little trailer


with our two little girls and his
mama."
In 'time, though, Lucinda
would like her new home just
fine, prompting her to tell
Roland that she would not honor
that promise'she made to move
back to Georgia if something

happened to him.
"I have too much sand and
mud between my toes now to
ever go back to that red clay, in
north Georgia," Lucinda said.
The only, move Lucinda
made was into the house built
by Roland's father, a 'house that

has been an ongoing work in
1 progress.
Harry Stern began building
the house before he and Leona
married in .1933. The couple
lived in a shanty house on the
property while the house was
completed to the point where it
was livable.
Roland and Lucinda bought
the house in 1971. It's a house
with no closets and no hallways.
"It was just three bedrooms
off the three rooms-living
room, dining room and kitchen,"
Lucinda said.
The house was built with no
bathrooAs, though one was
added to the back porch in the
'40s.
"We raised our girls with
one bathroom," Lucinda said:
"Of course, after they got gone,
we built on another one. They
always tease us about that. tell
them it taught them sharing."
Renovations have been made,
but the house still has its origtal
tin, its original boards and its
original fireplace.
"Of course, we cheat,"
Lucinda said. "We've got a little
heating system, too. In fact,
the first thing we put in was
a furnace and air-conditioner
because (Roland) said he always
froze to death in the winter and
heated to death in the summer."
Whatever the renovation or
addition to the home-or any
significant expense for that
matter-it was never undertaken
until enough money was spent to
cover the cost.
Just as it had in the past, the
land the family lives on played a
pivotal role.

A family becomes one
with the land
As mentioned earlier, Harry
Stern cut timber to make money
for Roland to go to forestry
school. Harry Stern also relied
on the harvests of his pecan trees
to raise the money to pay taxes.
In that same vein, Roland
has used the timber to help
cover certain expenses, with the
harvested trees always being
replanted.
."That's always been like our
little bank account," Lucinda
said.
It develops an appreciation
of the land and a special
relationship with the land, which
Lucinda and Roland have tried


't


to pass on to their children and
grandchildren.
They have also shared the land
with those who are interested in
living on it.
"I think you've got to be
willing to share the land,"
Lucinda said. "(Roland's) daddy
was very gracious with us in
sharing the land. Roland has
been very gracious with the
children and grandchildren.
"Now, they'll do with it as
they please, and we've told them
that. No strings attached."
Roland said, "I'd like for
them to be able to stay here-
those that want to. It's not a

LYONS
Continued from 2B

willing to allow Lyons to give it
a try. However, the pre-dance tap
class is a large class, and teacher
Emily Giles knew .she couldn't
devote extra time to Lyons at the
expense of the other students.
That's when Laura Theus turned
to her daughter, who was eager
to help.
Emma Theus said she.thought
working with Lyons would be
Helpful if she goes onto become
a dance instructor as an adult.
"I thought it would be really
fun and interesting,"- Emma
Theus said. "It's not only good
for Kameron, it's good as an
experience for me to learn how
to teach disabled kids."
Theus said it did not take
long for her and Lyons to form
a bond.
"We clicked immediately,"
Theus said. "There was just
something about Kameron. She
put so much trust in you. Even
though she can't see you, it's
like she trusts you more than any
person.
Unlike other dance students,
Lyons couldn't be shown a
visual and then perform what
she had seen. Emma Theus said
she wbuld move Lyons' feet in
the way they were supposed to
move. The rest was up to Lyons'
memory.
"It takes her a little bit longer,
but'she gets it," Emma Theus said:
when comparing how fast Lyons
learned compared to the other
students. "It sticks with her."
Warren said once Lyons learns
how to do something, she doesn't
forget. That, prompted Warren,
during the interview with the
Telegraph-Times-Monitor, to ask
Lyons, "You're not part'elephant
are you, baby?"
Lyons shook her head with an
"uh-uh."
She remained pretty quiet
during the interview, but Lyons
was anything but quiet when it
came time to performing during
the dance recital. According to
Emma Theus, Lyons seemed to
be having the time of her life.
"She was laugliig and
screaming on stage," Theus said.
If anybody had stage fright,
it was Theus, who accompanied
Lyons on stage to assist her/and
hold her hand. Theus said she
didn't know what to expect of
Lyons, who would be dancing
outside the familiar environment
of the Starke Academy of Dance
studio.
"I think she knew what to
expect a little bit when she was
backstage," Theus said, "but it
was kind of nerve-racking for me
because I was like, 'Oh, I hope
she does all her moves.'"
While so many in the audience
were unaware they were watching
a blind child dance, those in the
know were truly touched by the
experience.
"I was crying on the side of the
stage," Laura Theus said. "I was
just so proud that she did it."
Now, Lyons plans to take a
jazz dancing class this summer.
When asked why she wanted to
learn jazz dancing, Lyons replied
it was because she wanted to "do .
funky moves."
Jazz dancing will present a
bigger challenge than~tap because
in tap a dancer can at least hear
the beat and feel the vibrations
because of the shoes," Laura
Theus said.
Emma Theus said it will be
hard, but it won't deter her from.
continuing to work with Lyons.
"We'll have a lot of fun this
summer," Emma Theus said.
Lyons plans to do more than
put her feet to work dancing-
she wants to see what her fingers
can do on a piano. Warren said it
was during vacation Bible school
at Sampson City Church of God
when Alex Coleman, who is also
blind, sat Lyons at a piano to see


what she would do. She placed
her fingers on the keys as if she
knew exactly what she was doing,
which prompted Coleman to say
Lyons has the ability to play.
SWarren has a piano at home for
her niece to practice on.
"I told her, 'You learn piano,
you can have Nana's piano.'
She's real excited about that,"
Warren said.
It remains to be seen how
accomplished Lyons can become


in either playing the piano or
dancing. The one certainty is if
Lyons makes up her mind to do
something, she's going to do it.
Her blindness is not a permanent
obstacle, but one to be cleared
in her desire to not only play
piano or dance, tut to participate
in other activities, such as
swimming, riding her bicycle
and riding horses.
To see Lyons' approach to life
has certainly had an impact on
family members and how they,
in turn, look at life.
"She's our inspiration,"
Warren said.
