Regarding other parks and
recreation projects, the city
approved applying for FRDAP
(Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program) grants
to improve both Lakeside and
Westside Parks. Funding would
be for the 2014-15 fiscal year.
At Lakeside, $50,000 would
go toward improving the
bathrooms and structure of the
long pavilion. Another $50,000
would go toward Westside to
repair cracks in the basketball
court, add metal roofs to thb.
pavilions and add fresh paint all
around-and maybe overhaul
some playground equipment.
Andy Easton said that since
FRDAP is a competitive grant,
there are activities the city can
complete in order to earn points
to improve its standing in trying
to win funding.
An on-going project put in front
of the city was the assisted living
facility (ALF) proposed for Lake
Butler. Maggi Wetzel of Lake
Butler Senior Living, Inc. asked
the city to submit the application
for the CDBG (Conmmunity
Development Block Grant)
funding. Even though her company
will develop and operate it, the
city must apply for the $750,000
grant, which it agreed to do, after
City Attorney John E. Maines, IV
educated the commissioners on the
process and gave them guidance
on protecting the interests of the
city. Commissioner Fred Sirmones
recused himself from voting since
he is on Wetzel's board. State
guidelines require a commissioner
from the city to be on the board.
As previously reported, the city
approved an interlocal agreement
with Worthington Springs to
provide mosquito spraying
services and Worthington Springs
will purchase the chemicals.
Banks handles the spraying using
a special city truck designed
for that purpose and stated that
it takes about 45 minutes total
for spraying and roundtrip to
Worthington Springs. He only
sprays within the city limits.
Finally at the Aug. 12 meeting, it
was announced that Commissioner
LeRoy Stalvey would be
recognized for 25 years of service
to the city at the Florida League
of "CitfelAhitialt 'Cinfereife' in
Orlando, Aug. 15-17."
The Sept. 9 meeting actually
included three meetings .in a
row: Community Redevelopment
Agency Board Meeting, City
of Lake Butler Preliminary
Budget Hearing and the monthly
Commission Meetirng.
. The CRA meeting simply
consisted of Mecusker stating that
the splash park had been approved.
At the budget hearing, the
city adopted, and subsequently
approved at its regular meeting,
the current millage rate of 2.2599
for the 2013714 fiscal year, which
means no increases in taxes.
In aletterto the commissioners,
Mecusker stated that the fiscal
year ending Sept. 30 would show
a surplus in all categories.
The month of September
mirrored that with a $25,656
surplus. Net income from utilities
for the same period was $139,886.
"All needs of the city along
with unexpected lawsuits,
unemployment compensation
and other unforeseen issues were
able to be absorbed in the current
years (sic) funding without having
to rely or use any cash reserves


Marines gives Wetzel a thumbs-up after advising the
commissioners on protecting the Interests of the city as
It applies for a grant for proposed assisted living facility.


from prior years'," he wrote. '"Our
financial position is strong."
Total budget for the city is
more than $3.3 million. It will
end with over $1 million in
reserves-up from $990,000 the
year before.
"We've put in some excellent
controls," Mecusker said
afterwards. "We put in a
purchasing department and
separated department budgets."
He said the surplus is not from
utilities as much as it is from
controlling expenses. "We could
go through it like that," he added,
"but we're not frivolous."
He also recommended an
annual raise of 3% for all full-
time city employees, which the
commissioners approved. They
also decided to forgo their own
raises and instead distribute that as
a gift certificate to all employees
in the early part of December.
In the four years that Mecusker
has served as city manager, he
said the employees have always
received a raise because they
work with administrators to
curtail expenses.
Finally, Mecusker said they
will maintain all reserves to
meet future project needs. These
include $6,000 for Lakeside
Park bathroom renovations and
$2,000 for commission chambers
renovations.
The city also advertised that it
has tentatively adopted a measure
to increase its property tax levy.
Last year's total property tax
levy was $75,173 (the initially
proposed tax levy of $76,181
less tax reductions due to Value
Adjustment Board and other
assessment change or $1,008).
This year's proposed levy is
$75,888. That increase comes
not from higher taxes but from
higher appraised property values
from the approximately 700
taxable hfiis aiid buildings thit,
reside within the city limits.
In another item, the city
increased rental rates for use
of (he Lake Butler Community
Center` and Townsend-Green
Building. Mecusker said that at
the city's "very, very reasonable"
rate of $110 for a half-day rental,
the city subsidizes those locations
at a tune of nearly $6,000 per
year for the cost of maintaining
them as rental units. Even with
increasing the half-day rate to
$150, which he proposed, renting
the buildings would still cost the
city about $1,500 per year.
He said that the community
center offers the amenities of a
park and later this year will add
a splash park to that.
For comparison, he said that
others charge much more than
what Lake Butler does. For
instance, it costs $300 for a
reception that includes using
the gazebo at the. Wbrthington
Springs Community Center.
Mecusker also said that the
non-profit rental rate of just $25
was too low, and doubled it to
$50, which is still a third of the
rate other renters pay.

An employee rate of $20
was also doubled, and the Lake
Butler Social Club's rate of $110
was increased by $15.
Additionally, a cleaning
deposit of $50 is now required,
but the key deposit goes from
$26.75 to $25.00 because the city
does not need to collect sales tax
on that like it used to since the
keys have been returned 100%
of the time. "We're not in the
business of selling keys, and we
shouldn't be collecting tax on
that anyway," Mecusker said.
The commissioi.ers approved
the rate increases.
The city also adjusted the late
and reconnection fees for water,
from the current rate of $12.50,
each, back to previous rate of $25.
The fees were originally reduced
through a moratorium for one
year that lasted for two. Due to
expanded costs, Mecusker said,
the city determined that the fees
needed to be returned to their
original level, effective Oct. 1.
The city approved the increase.
In other matters, the annual
agreement was approved between
the city and the North Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council for $7,000. Each year
the council provides the city with
comprehensive planning and
zoning services.
Finally, Mecusker asked the
commissioners for direction
regarding residents that deposit
piles of leaves on the curb without
bagging them, and then neighbors
call to complain that the piles sit
there without ,being picked up.
Mecusker wondered if an article
in the newspaper would help.
Maines recommended a door
hanger that could be left at a house
when someone sees a problem.
Mecusker did remind everyone
that October is beautification
month again, just like it is
eyery April. It is a cooperative
effort between the city atitt
Union County. They will pick
up anything from washing
machines and mattresses to used
cars for free. However, residents
put items like this on the curb or
ditch all year long.
To remedy that, he said the city
will start charging something
like $10. Mecusker will offer a
proposal at the October meeting.
At the same meeting,
Pamela McElroy with AMEC
Environment & Infrastructure,
Inc. provided an update
regarding the placement of
proposed monitoring wells
to augment the ones current

The Bible's Teaching on Alcohol
The Bible is filled with warnings about alcohol. In
Proverbs 23:29-35 a picture is painted of the individual
given to-wine. The individual-suffers woe, sorrow,
contentions, complaints, wounds without- oause and .;
redness of eyes (vs. 29-30), yet his only concern is, When
shall I awake, that I may seek another drink? (vs. 35)
Lemuel was told alcohol would cause him to forget the
law (Proverbs 31:5). The Bible calls drunkards
unrighteous and says they will not inherit the kingdom of
God yet'it is possible to cease drinking (1 Corinthians 6:9-
11). Some say God only condemns drunkenness, yet He /
condemns drinking at all levels drunkenness, revelries, and
drinking parties (1 Peter 4:3). Not only is drunkenness a
work of the flesh but all actions like it are equally wrong
(Galatians 5:21).

Prescription
drug ring busted
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Nine were arrested on drug-
related charges by the Bradford
County Sheriff's Office Drug
Task Force in a bust appropriately
called Operation Walking Dead.
. According to Capt. Brad
Smith, the Sept. 6 and 7 operation
was part of a lengthy undercover
investigation of the illegal
purchase, sale and distribution of
prescription narcotics.
"During the investigation
agents discovered that numerous
people living in Bradford and
Union Counties would obtain
prescription pills by fraudulent
means and either use or sell the
pills for profit,"' Capt. Smith said.
With Dyal Cemetery in
western Bradford County as the
setting for the operation, the task
force used several confidential
informants and undercover
agents to purchase and sell the


illegal prescriptions.
"This investigation stems
from a prescription pill epidemic
that has swept across the state
in recent years:'," said Sheriff
Gordon Smith. "Numerous
deaths have been attributed
to the misuse of prescription
medication and some of these
suspects looked like zombies
when we arrested them."
Drug dealers usually obtained
the drugs from patients to whom
they were legally prescribed.
They then turned around and
sold the drugs for a profit.
Arrested were:
Paul A. Jones, 43, of Starke.
He was charged with drug
trafficking.
Christopher A. Sangster, 55,
of Starke. He was charged with
synthetic narcotic distribution.
He was released on Sept. 10 on
$50,359.52 bond.'
Felicia N. Swafford, 21, of
Starke. She was charged with
drug trafficking. She remains in
jail with bond set at $100,000.
Peggy D. Sweat, 41, of
Hampton. She was charged with


drug trafficking. She remains in
jail with bond set at $100,000.
Jamie Prevatt, 22, of Starke.
He was charged. with drug
trafficking. She remains in jail
with bond set at $100,000.
SBrandon D. Smith, 21, of Lake
Butler. He was charged with drug
trafficking. He remains in jail
with bond set at $100,000.
,e LarryE. Dobbs, 42, of
Raiford. He was charged with
drug sale and possession. He
remains in jail with bond set at
$50,000.
SAlbert J. Andrews, 42, of
Lake Butler. He was charged
with drug sale and possession.
He remains in jail with bond set
at $50,000.
Justin K. Rogers, 27, of
Raiford. He was charged with
synthetic narcotic distribution.
He remains in jail with bond set
at $50,000.
In addition to the arrests, the
task force seized six vehicles
used in drug trafficking. The
investigation is ongoing, and
other arrests and seizures are
likely, according to the sheriff.

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

Union County tried to squeeze
some additional revenue out of
the New River Regional Landfill,
but other association members
are standing in the way for now.
Union Commissioner Wayne
Smith wanted another $100,000
per county on top of the $300,000
in unanticipated each of the three
member counties received earlier
this year. The money was taken
out of the escrow required for the
long-term care of the landfill.
This second dip would have
brought the total taken ,out of
escrow to $1.2 million, .hut Smith
said it was the perfect time to do so.
He also said he has a project in
Union County he needed to pay
for, although he didn't specify
what that project was.
Executive Director Darrell
O'Neal said the landfill's future
care obligation is 64 percent
funded. Taking money out of
escrow would lower that percent.
A portion of the tipping
fees from Alachua and Levy
counties is contractually
earmarked for long-term care.

If the landfill hasn't funded that
obligation 100 percent by the
time those contracts end, then
the responsibility falls back
to Bradford, Baker and Union
counties.
But O'Neal did agree with
Smith that if money is going to
be pulled out of escrow and given
to the member counties, the
time is now because it will give
New River time to recover. The
landfill is working to improve
interest earnings, he said, and
there are potential savings on
future projects that could be
directed toward closure.
Bradford Commissioner Eddie
Lewis sId they .shouid. wait.until
some of that is accomplished
before taking more money from
the landfill.
"That would be my suggestion.
I'd hate to spend our reserves, so
to speak;' he said, and O'Neal
agreed that's exactly what the
board would be doing. Lewis said
he'd love to take another $100,000
to Bradford County, but not at the
risk of suffering when it comes
time to close the landfill.
"I want to make sure we're
covered:'," Lewis said. "We just
got some money not long ago,
and it helped out tremendously,
so more money would help out
tremendously, but if you're not
sure if the interest rate's going
up, if you're not sure it's going to
be there, I'm not sure it's time to
do it."
There was talk of using the
revenue from Alachua County's
surcharge to cover the $300,000,
but that amount is being set aside
for the future development of the
landfill's second phase.
Smith wanted to know if board
would be willing to earmark the
first year's revenue from the
upcoming gas-to-energy project
to help pay back money taken
out of escrow. Baker County
Commissioner Mark Hartley
said if he knew the gas-tb-energy
project was a certainty, he would
be less concerned about Smith's
request.
Smith said he would withdraw
his request until more is kpown
about the future of the energy
generation project. A proposed
contract is expected by October.
Each landfill budget includes
dividends that go back to the
counties from the operation of
the landfill. In 2014, just as in
2013, the three counties will
share $690,000 equally, plus
Union County will receive an


additional $100,000 for hosting
the landfill.
These dividends are in addition
to any unanticipated revenue sent
back to the counties, such as the
amount taken'out of the long-
term care escrow.

In other business:
The advancement of the
landfill's gas-to-energy project
depends on the outcome of
financial portion of negotiations
with the firm set to build the
project. Instead of guaranteeing
New River a price through
purchase of the landfill's gas,
O'Neal said Landfill Energy
Systems ,.now wants to offer a
percentage of the profits from
the energy sales. The firm wants
to partner with the landfill on the
project, he said, but they need
more information on projected
sales to help decide if that's in
the landfill's best interests.
Board members also want
to know how much of the gas
LES would be using to run the
generation system in addition
to the amount of electricity
generated so they can be.sure
they are being paid for all of the
gas being used.
Another possible sticking
point is LES' insistence on a 20-
year contract term, but the board
is also eager to get the project
going, since it isn't earning
anything off of the landfill gas
right now.
The board selected three of
five applicants for the post of
board attorney to be interviewed
based on .their responses to the
public advertisement. They were
Russ Wade of Lake Butler, who
currently serves as the attorney
for Union County, the Taylor Law
Firm of Keystone Heights and
Paul Sanders of Starke. Smith
wanted the board to interview
two, Wade and Taylor. Bradford
Commissioner Doyle Thomas
said they should interview at
least three of the five, so Sanders
was added.
Not selected for interview were
Lex Sanders and the Cooper Law
Firm, both of Starke.
The board plans to conduct
the interviews during an as-yet
unannounced special meeting.
O'Neal told the board that
the landfill is losing money on
grinding yard waste, so bids will
be accepted on hauling it away
in order to reduce that cost. The
waste would likely wind up at the:
biomass plant in Gainesville.

4A UNION COUNTY TIMES THURSDAY, SEPT. 19, 2013


UC officials get

DOT to move

school zone

sign back

BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN
Times Editor
t
Before the school year began,
the Florida Department of
Transportation installed new
and better school zone signs
along S.R. 121 in Lake Butler to
Enhance the safety of students
crossing the street every day.
New flashing signs on posts by
the side of the road are easier to.
see than the overhead signs they
replaced.
What wasn't better was
"shrinking" the school zone,
as Union County Sheriff Jerry


Whitehead described it by moving
the sign east of the Lake Butler
Elementary School, westward
about 100 yards. That provided
less protection to parents walking
their children to Tiger Den Day
Care east of the elementary school.
Worse yet, DOT didn't tell the
sheriff or even the Union County
School Board. Parents started
calling Whitehead to ask him
why the change was made.
To add insult to injury, when
county officials requested that
the sign be moved back to its
original location, the DOT
engineer in charge of the project
would not budge. It's a position
he later regretted, Whitehead
said. The engineer didn't know
whom he was dealing with.
As school board member
Becky Raulerson reported on
her Facebook page, State Rep.
Charles Van Zant accompanied


Sheriff Whitehead, Lt. Lyn
Williams, School Superintendent
Carlton Faulk and school
board member Alvin Griffis
to a meeting with DOT
administrators in Lake City this
past Monday morning.
"As a result of the meeting,
and our community's dedicated
leadership in seeing that this
issue get resolved, the DOT has
agreed to move the sign," she said.
"Thanks to everyone involved for
staying committed and seeing to
it that our students go to school in
the safest environment possible!"
Raulerson explained that,
"Basically, DOT followed their
regulations on what defines an area
as a 'school zone' (which is within
so many feet of a crosswalk). There
is only one crosswalk for LBES.
Thus, where the sign was placed
was at the end of their definition of
a school zone."


SWhitehead and Faulk said Van
Zant was instrumental and "did a
good job."
According to Whitehead, the
sign should be moved within 30
to 60 days.
Lake Butler City Manager
Dave Mecusker said that now
that the signs have been installed
on the side of the road instead of
overhead, the city will move the
few trees that block their view.
He' and others praised
Whitehead and the sheriff's
office, the school board and Van
Zant for their successful efforts.
As someone observed: "It's
funny how things can change
when you get the right people
involved."
It was one of many hard lessons
learned by a certain DOT engineer.
The other? Union County is
passionate about taking care of its
kids and Tigers of all ages.

LBES kicks

off Tiger Up
Morning Mile
program

More than 150 students came
out as Lake Butler Elementary
School recently kicked off
another year of their Tiger Up
Morning Mile walking program.
The Tiger Up program
gives students in grades 1-4 an
opportunity to exercise rather
than sit or stand in front of their
classrooms waiting for the bell to
ring.
To help get the event off on the
right foot, many special guests
were on hand for moral support.
Attending the event were the
Union County High School Tiger


football players, cheerleaders
and mascot as well as school
board members Alvin Griffis
and Allen Parrish.
bTo begin, each
participant receives a tally card
to keep track of how far they
walk. Students then receive one
stamp for each quarter-mile lap
that they complete.
The stamps accumulate and
awards are given for those that
have reached a minimum of
three miles (or twelve stamps)
at each nine weeks awards
ceremony.
The morning program is made
possible through a handful of
parent volunteers who assist the
faulty and staff members of
LBES by monitoring students.
The walk is open from 7:30
a.m. to 7:50 a.m., Monday
through Thursday. Tiger Up is


not held on Fridays or I with
inclement weather.
If you are a parent o,'guar(iian
that is interested in vohlunteering
for the beneficial program,
please do not hesitate lo contact
the school at 386-496 30-17.

The birth of Union County

The area that is now Union
County .was- originally part.,of St.
'Johns County whenl Florida first
became a territory of the United
States in 1821. In 1822 Union
became part of Duval County.
From 1828 to'1832 the area that
is now Union County was part
of Alachua County. Upon its
creation in 1832, Columbia County
encompassed the area of Union
where it remained until 1858.
In 1858 Newv River County
was created and the town of Lake
Butler was designated as the
county seat. In 1861 the name of the
county was changed to Bradford
in honor of Major Bradford, the
first Confederate officer from
Florida to lose his life in the
Civil War. After the war, several


elections were held to determine
if Lake Butler or Starke should be
.the county seat. In the late 1890s
Starke won the site election and
was named the county seat.
In 1921,ratherthan have another
site election, Bradford County
was divided in order to form
Union County. On May 20, 1921,
an act providing for the creation
.of Union County was presented
to the State Legislature. The part
of Bradford County at the Baker
County line where the bed of
New River intersects, following a
southwesterly direction to the bed
of the Santa Fe River was given
to Union County. On October 1,
1921 Union County officially
became the 61st county of the
State of Florida comprising 246
square miles.
The name "Union" was chosen
as the name of the county to
express its unity after years of
strife and division.

NEWS FROM BRADFORD COUNTY, UNION COUNTY AND THE LAKE REGION



Santa Fe, community team up to 'envision' Bradford's future


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Santa Fe College President
Jackson Sasser said it's a "good
day" at the college, so he chose
to channel his focus on Bradford
County during a combined
state of the college address/
Envision Bradford 2023 meeting
at the Gov. Charley E. Johns
Conference Center in Starke on
Sept. 10.
Referring to the college's top-
10 ranking by the Aspen Institute
and a recent accreditation process
in which Santa Fe received an
"A" grade, Sasser said, "I didn't
give the state of the college
because, quite honestly, it's
good."
Instead, the meeting was all
about Envision Bradford 2023-
a series of meetings the college
has been hosting at which
community members have been
identifying the critical issues the
county faces in the future and
identifying 24 specific needs in
eight topic areas that are vital to
Bradford's future.
In response to any who
have questioned why Santa Fe
College has been involved in
such a project, Sasser said he
has replied that it is the college's
job. He summed up the college's
relationship with Bradford
County with a statement
President John F. Kennedy made
to the Canadian parliament in
1961: "Geography has made us
neighbors. History has made us
friends. Economics has made us
partners. And necessity makes us
allies."
Sasser said the college's role
is not to make the decisions in
regard to Bradford County's
future, but to help the county get
the resources it needs in moving
forward the way community
members envision.
It's an exciting prospect for
Sasser, who said, "We're on the
precipice of doing something


really, really important."
During three meetings in June,
July and August, community
members looked at eight issues:
technology and economic
development; mobility and
infrastructure; public safety;
housing; health care; workforce
development; public education;
and higher education.
Over the course of those
meetings, recommendations
were discussed and narrowed to
a list of three in each of the eight
issues:
Technology and economic
development: hire dedicated
economic development staff to
promote Bradford County as
a potential relocation site and
to develop business retention
and expansion programs to
keep existing businesses in
the county; address the lack
of adequate water, wastewater
and broadband infrastructure
to eliminate hindrances to
economic development; and
city and county officials work
together to develop a pro-
business environment and take
advantage of opportunities
to work together to promote


economic development.
Mobility and infrastructure:
provide access to water/fire
hydrants and sewer services
to outlying parcels in the city
of Starke; develop a plan for
commercial businesses to be
located along proposed bypass
interchanges; and review
availability and/or requirements
for annexation into the city of
Starke.
Public safety: provide utility
infrastructure and authority;
seek better communication
capabilities; and build roads for
emergency transportation.
Housing: perform a needs
assessment for housing; pursue
housing grants; and encourage
city and county to work together
to resolve zoning issues that
would impeded businesses from
locating to Bradford County.
Health care: increase
development of health care
expansion services; retention
of staff; and recreation and
entertainment to include fitness
opportunities.
Workforce development
provide infrastructure
for information

President
S Jackson Sasser
talks about
the future
of Bradford
County as part
of the Envision
Bradford
2023 series of
meetings.





technology to support education
and business; provide tax
relief, continue impact fees
moratorium, etc.; and hire an
economic development person
dedicated to promoting the
region and the current industrial
parks.
SPublic education: improve
Internet access and broadband
connectivity for residents;
discover, acquire and properly
utilize the necessary resources,
contacts and tools needed to look
into the future and accurately
identify forthcoming jobs and
careers; and utilize a community
wide, collaborative approach
to problem solving issues and
overcoming obstacles that might
hinder the progress of the school
system.
Higher education:
make it clear to the business
industry, including existing
and potential new businesses,
that Bradford County's higher
educational institutions have
built foundations that allow new
programs to be added quickly;
make the same items clear to the
families of business employees;


and sell the product.
Sasser, in providing an
overview of the Envision
Bradford 2023 results,
expounded on a few of the
recommendation in each issue
area. For example, he stressed
how important he thought it was
to hire an economic development
professional and to provide
water and sewer services to the
city of Starke's outlying areas.
"To be able to grow more
business, you've got to extend
the infrastructure out to more
areas," Sasser said.
Improved Internet access and
. the availability of broadband
service was the recommendation
in a couple of issue areas. Sasser
agreed with its importance,
saying Starke must have
broadband services, whether
they come about as the result of
local, state or federal resources.
"That's just got to be done," he
said, also noting the importance
of Internet access in education
for today's children. If children
have limited access to the
Internet, Sasser said, '"You're
taking away from your children
rather than giving."
SIn regard to the issue of higher
education and Santa Fe's role in
Bradford County's future, Sasser
said, "We are primed to provide
what is needed. If we don't have
the skill set at the college, with
the resources we have and the
contacts we have right now, we
can get it."
Sasser turned the floor over to
a couple of community members,
including Bradford County
Telegraph owner/publisher
John Miller, who talked of
the importance of providing
employment opportunities so
that young people who grow up
in Bradford County can remain
in Bradford County.
"The sad part is, after they
graduate (from college), they
can't return to Bradford County,"
Miller said. "What we're talking


about is jobs."
Miller mentioned the need
of replacing the loss of such
employers as CMI Joist and
Riverside Uniform.
"We've got to be able to create
some of the 1,900 jobs that have
gone away from this county
since 2007" Miller said, later
adding, "We are very thankful
we have prisons. They're good
jobs,. but they can't be the only
jobs we have."
City of Starke and Bradford
County officials are important
in the process of defining the
future of Bradford County, but
they also need the support of the
community around them, Miller
said.
"You have to give them some
direction and guidance," Miller
said. "Now's the time."
Jeff Oody, the president of
Community State Bank and
a Santa Fe College Board of
Trustees member, echoed the
importance of the community
taking an active role in shaping
the county's future. Oody said
such change goes beyond relying
on city and county officials to
change laws or pass new ones.
"We 'need businesses, we
need charities and we need
individuals to work together
with our government," Oody
said, later adding, "The heroes
that can .make this happen are
in this room today-every one
of us. If you look to your left
or your right, we are the only
ones who are going to do it. No
one from the outside is going to
come in and change it. If they
do, it's probably not going to be
changed to the way we want it to
be changed'."
Chad Farnsworth, Bradford
County's superintendent of
schools, has been an Envision
Bradford 2023 participant. He
said the process has been unique
and admitted it was one he was

Area prisons help Sesame Workshop support children of inmates


- Crime rates are decreasing,
but the number of children who
have an incarcerated parent has
increased nearly 80 percent over
the past 20 years.
When a family member is in-
carcerated, it is a life-changing
event that affects the entire fam-
ily. Young children often do not
understand what is happening
and have a hard time dealing
with it. They are not responsible
for their parents' transgressions,
but they sometimes feel thdie situ-
ation is somehow their fault
A new program aimed at help-


ing these children was presented
to more than 140 child visitors
Aug. 17 at Union Correctional
Institution, Florida State Prison,
Reception Medical Center and
Lawtey Correctional Institution.
Caregivers of these young
children often do not know how
to talk to them about the situa-
tion. Sesame Workshop-the
nonprofit educational organi-
zation that produces, Sesame
Street-has devised a program
to help these children, their care-
givers and their incarcerated par-
ents deal with this problem.


Children in the RMC visiting park watched the DVD
provided by Sesame Workshop.

"Little Children, Big Chal-
lenges: Incarceration" is a bilin-
gual kit for children, ages .3-8,
who have a parent in prison or
jail. The program is designed
to support and comfort children
while reducing their anxiety, sad-
ness and confusion. It also pro-
vides at-home caregivers with
strategies and tips for talking
to these children. The program
gives the parents examples of
age-appropriate language they
can use when they talk to their
children about incarceration.
For example, if a child asks his
parent where he is and when he
will be home, the program rec-
ommends saying something like:
S"I'm in a place called pris-


on. Grownups go to prison when
they break a rule called a law.

Make 'great strides' against CF Sept. 28


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
" Regional News/Sports Editor
-The fifth annual Bradford-
Union Great Strides, a
funmdraising walk for the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, is
scheduled for Saturday, Sept.
28, starting at. Shands Starke
Regional Medical Center at 9
amn. (Registration begins at 8
a.mn.)
Lunch will be provided to
participants of the 3-mile walk
by Gator Domino's.
-: Money raised during the
Bradford-Union Great Strides
event has increased each
year. Last year's event raised
approximately $23,000, which
prompted Lawtey native Katelyn
Sims, who helped start the event,
to set a goal of $25,000-$30,000
this year.
Sims, 22, was diagnosed with
cystic fibrosis at the age of 4.
Funds raised through Great
Strides events help provide
funding for the development of
medications, such as Kalydeco,
the first drug to address the
underlying cause of cystic
fibrosis. Kalydeco, developed
by Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc.,
was approved by the Food and
Drug Administration in January
2012 for use with people with
one specific cystic fibrosis gene


mutation. It has helped people
such as Charlie Burnett, a
Macclenny man who participated,
in last year's Bradford-Union
Great Strides event. Kalydeco
helped Bumrnett's lung function
improve from 44 percent to 77
percent.
The Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation provided $75 million
for Vertex Pharmaceuticals'
cystic fibrosis program.
Kalydeco is not available
in a form that targets Sims'
genetic mutation, but Sims'
mother, Leisa, said the fact a
drug like Kalydeco exists in
any form provides ,hope that
future fundraising efforts will
eventually help more of the
cystic fibrosis population.
"I would like to say that's part
of why this walk this year is so
important-because we've got to
get the FDA to push Kalydeco on
through," Leisa Sims said during
a cystic fibrosis presentation
at the Sept. 3 Kiwanis Club of
Starke meeting.
Katelyn Sims told Kiwanis
members the drug Cayston has
helped her lung function improve
by 3 to 4 percent, saying, "It
wasn't a drastic improvement,
but 3 or 4 percent is awesome for
me. I'm not going to complain
about that."


Leisa Sims said recent tests,
however, have revealed that her
daughter's lung function is at the
lowest level it has ever been.
"It really would only take one
good bout of pneumonia to put
her at a very dangerous level,"
Leisa Sims said.
That's why support of Great
Strides means so much. Leisa
Sims expressed her appreciation
for the community's support of
past events.
"We are very much grateful for
everything you all do," she said.
"I know it's a lot. There are so
many other things out there you
could be-doing."'!....
Claudia Wemrner Foxworth,
senior development director of
the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's
North Florida Chapter in
Jacksonville, also spoke at the
Sept. 3 Kiwanis meeting. She
talked of the importance of the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
making the move toward finding
a cure-a goal not everyone
shared.
"Back in 1980, the CF
Foundation had been existence
about 25 years," Foxworth
said. "It was a time of really
divisiveness at the CF
Foundation. There was a group


that wanted to go after the cure
for this disease. There was
another group that wanted to
buy coffins and hospital beds for
children who would never make
it.
"Thankfully, the more
positive way won out at the CF
Foundation."
The foundation made the

in the accompanying photo. As a
matter of fact, Fitts has filled his
quota of two gators for the year.
All of these gator hunters are
local to our three-county area.
Fitts owns a weed management
business and professionally
fishes the FLW circuit.
Carroll is a private contractor,
and Johns is the director of
emergency management for
Bradford County. Jackson is
employed with Clay Electric,
and McClellan is employed by
Clay County. (Carroll, Jackson
and McClellan were regular
successful participants in the
Bald Eagle bass tournaments at
Santa Fe Lake.) Robinson is the
new children's pastor at Trinity
Baptist Church in Keystone
and has recently moved into
that community from South
Carolina.
A topic that is often batted
around about gators is their size.
By most standards, 12 feet long
would usually be considered a
large gator, and that does include
the gator taken by Carroll and
his crew. This past week, Ben
Williams bagged one out of
Lake George that totaled 13 feet,
7 inches. The largest gator taken
in Florida in recent years was 14
feet and 3.5 inches. The largest
gator on record was killed in
Louisiana in 1890 and was 19
feet and 2 inches, weighing
approximately 2,000 pounds.
One question that typically
arises around the topic of
gator hunting is related to


the preparation and cooking
subsequent to the kill. Due to
the increased population of gator
farms, most people are aware
that gators are often eaten, but
most would be lost when it came
to cleaning or cooking.
Interestingly enough, Johns
says that since he has seen what
gators eat, he generally gives his
away. Carroll uses the services
of a processor that can be easily
obtained from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission website (www.
myfwc.org). Fitts cleans and
processes his gators himself.
When the question concerns
cooking, the normal response
involves lightly flouring and
subsequently frying or cooking
like steak.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
closely monitors the gator
population and determines the
hunt quota and hunt areas based
upon the population count from
the previous year.
Tight lines and safe hunting
until next week.

'Dear County Commissioners and
Property Appraiser:
Several of you proclaim to, be
Christians. Do you ever stop to
think that when you make a de-
cision on the budget, how your
decision is going to affect the
residents of Bradford County, or
are your decisions based sorely
on Bradford County and those to
whom you want to please?
The Bradford Telegraph pub-
lished June 20, 2013, on page 2,
the following: "Bradford County
is financially strong with money
to spend." It stated how Bradford
County's assets exceed its liabili-
ties by $67 million-up more
than $1 million from 2011.
I received my proposed prop-
erty taxes for 2013, and need-
less to say, no matter which way
you all go on the budget, my
taxes will increase. The market
value on my home went down
by $945, and my assessed value
went up by $856. There was only
one piece of property out here
that was sold this year-a mobile
home with property. All the other
homes up for sale still, are. My
question is, how can Ray Nor-

The program recommends
talking honestly with the child
while trying to maintain a home
environment for him or her that
is as stable as possible.
The program materials state,
"It's important to tell your child
the truth about his parent's incar-
ceration. It's the best way to help
ti.m feel loved and cared for."
The materials also warn that if
no information on the reason for

is in the area where only myself
and two other property owners
care about their property. To my
knowledge, Mr. Alvarez never
comes out here. He just goes by
what the county manager and
the commissioners want him to
do for my statistics.
Two years ago, there were
two commissioners listed in the
paper as not paying their prop-
erty taxes. Last year, there was
one who had several pieces of
property. I know that you all
think, well, if the property own-
ers don't pay the taxes, someone
will buy a tax certificate so the
county will get its money. But
do you ever think of the property
owners, how they feel not being
able to pay their taxes on a home
they have struggled for years to
hold onto? To the two of you that
were in the paper, now you know
how other people feel when they
can't pay their taxes, but yet
you agree on a budget that will
increase property taxes again
this year. How can you live with
yourselves?
When you proclaim to be a
Christian, your daily actions in
job or life should reflect it. But
when you make decisions that
will cost people money they
don't have just so the county can

Reader asks
letter writer to
offer solution
to abortion
Dear Editor (in response to the
Sept. 5 letter by Mr. Young):
You bring a good many points
against abortion, but avoid
offering any solution to halt
the slaughter of babies. Do you
have any plan to offer Bradford
County that would help to stop
abortions? Have you personally
done anything to help these
women who feel trapped with no
way out except to kill their own
baby? It's time to stop talking
and take action. Can't we start a
fund to help these women? Is it
possible to start a home. however
small, to help some of them to
not only deliver their babes, but
to learn a trade?
The people of Bradford County
are not heartless. They would
back such an effort as this.
Mr. Young, I challenge you
take action and lead the way to
save babies.

*Strong 1st half propels Union County to 21-7 win over Keystone


BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN
Times Editor'
Caleb Cox threw two
touchdown passes in the first
half as the Union County High
School varsity football team built
a 21-0 lead en route to defeating
visiting Keystone Heights 21-7
on Sept. 13.
The Tigers' first-half
performance helped overcome
a sloppy second half full of
penalties-three of which
occurred on the team's first five
pays in the second half.
Keystone finally made it into
the end zone two-thirds of the
way into the fourth quarter, but
by, then it was too little too late.
The Indians, (1-1) made little
ground to open the game,
thanks to Union's defense,
including Austin Dukes and
Alden McClellon, who stopped
a quarterback keeper for 5 yards.
That would be it for the Indians
before they punted it away.
The Tigers (3-0) did much
better, scoring a touchdown on
their first possession, but the
Irdians' Sam Anderson would
be a thorn in the Tigers' side all
night long. He tripped up Daquin
Edwards on his second run.
i The Keystone defense was also
helped by Josh Knight and Chase
Musselman.
U nion's first score came at
the 5:18 mark in the first quarter
after marching it down the field
on its first possession, earning
three first downs after receiving
the ball. Edwards ran it in for
a; touchdown and a good extra
j.


point put the Tigers up 7-0.
Keystone again went three-
and-out on its second possession,
thanks to an incomplete pass
intended for Brighton Gibbs,
a loss on an Anton Noble run
and a quarterback run that went
nowhere.
The Indians' Nolan Lowery
forced a loss on a run by
the Tigers' Isaiah Johnson,
following a flag on Union's
first play. However, after an
incomplete pass on the next play,
Cox connected with Princeton
Alexander, who took it from the
Tigers' 24-yard line all the way
to the Indians' 33 for a 59-yard
completion.
After the Tigers gained
another first down, Keystone's
Johnnie Fitts tackled Geordyn


Green for a loss, but two
completions later would put the
Tigers up 14-0 after the extra
point. The score was a 33-yard
pass to Cody Miller with 52
seconds left in the first quarter.
* Keystone's offense, again,
could not get a first down, this
time thanks to the efforts of the
Tigers' Joshua Scott and Andrew
Jones.
This time. around, Union's
offense would have trouble.
Keystone's Darien Gilio would
stop Johnson in the backfield for
a loss, but the Tigers also had
false start and delay of game
penalties, a bumbled handoff
and a fumble. It was the kind of
sloppiness they would show in
the second half that kept them
from scoring at all.


W Union County's
Darian Robinson
f' ^W makes a run
for it as Treyce
Hersey prepares
to block in the
Tigers'21-7 win
f .f over Keystone
Heights.





Like a
bad rerun, Keystone would again
enjoy just one set of downs,
plagued by a hit in the backfield,
a chop block penalty that Union
declined and an incomplete pass.
Things then went from bad to/
worse 'as the Tigers' McClellon
blocked the punt attempted at
the Indians' 18-yard line to set
up the Tigers just 6 yards from
the goal line.
Gilio again forced a loss, and
the Tigers again fumbled, but
they would take it into the end
zone, thanks to an 11-yard pass
from Cox to Parker Hodgson
at the 3:35 mark of the second
quarter. Another good extra
point put the Tigers up 21-0 after
just three plays.
Before end of the half,


Keystone finally got a first down
and made it to midfield, but
could not get the ball into their
receivers' hands to advance any
farther.
The Union offense took the
field and got a first down on
every play-four of them, in fact.
Cox's overthrown pass, though,
was intercepted by the Indians'
Micah Brown.
Like last week, the Tigers
transformed into a different
team in the second half. This
week, though, they went in the
wrong, with penalties like illegal
substitution, false start and delay
of game. Plus, the Tigers also had
a fumbled quarterback-center
exchange. All of this was just on
the Tigers' first possession of the
half.
Their defense continued to
play well, though; keeping the
Indians from doing much except
getting a rare first down.
Keystone came up with
another interception, but the
Tigers' McClellon and Kel
Galloway kept the Indians from
capitalizing on the opportunity.
On the next series, Union
marched it down the field like
it did during the first half, but
through the end of the third
quarter, the Indians' Gilio and
Anderson hindered the Tigers'
progress. Gilio sacked Cox,
and Anderson got in some good
tackles before being injured,
perhaps with just a leg cramp
because he was back in the game
later to wreak havoc.
The game became sloppy


on both sides, with flags and
an interception by the Tigers'
Green. The one bright spot came
for Keystone came when Blake
Valenzuela was able-to connect
with Noble for a 29-yard-pass for
a touchdown at the 4:24 mark of
the fourth quarter. A good extra
point put the score at 21-7.-- -.
After little progress on Union's
next possession, the Tigers'
Alexander would fall on an .
attempted punt after a low snap,
which gave the Indians the ball
on the Tigers' 34. The Indians,
though, failed to convert on that
gift. A sack didn't help, though
Valenzuela got off a 9-yarl-pass
to Grant McGee.
Both coaches talked about
injuries on their respective teams
after the game.
Union head coach Ronny
Pruitt attributed his team's play
to some injuries coming into the
game, but praised his team for
fighting back.
"It feels good when you come
out, and you fight," Pruitt told
his team after the game. "Hey,
you young guys, you see the
numbers, whatone injury can do
to us. We gotta stay healthy,'
He admonished them to let the
coaching staff know early if they
are injured.
"You get a good rest," Pruitt
said. "Let's come back Monday.
We've got to work. You all see
that, right? We've got to work."
He reminded them, "We're
going to outwork everybody

Tornadoes can't hang onto lead, lose 37-27


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
A 91-yard kickoff return
by Kenny Dinkins pulled the
Bradford High School varsity
football team to within three with
approximately seven minutes left
in the game, but the Tornadoes
simply couldn't stop Fort
White and running back Tavaris
Williams in a 37-27 loss on Sept.
13 in Starke.
The Tornadoes (0-2) held a
20-16 lead at the half, but were
held to 85 yards in the second
half, with Dinkins' kickoff return
providing their only points.

,. ... ....


Kenny DI"IARifis returns a kickoff '0 yards for a '- :
touchdown to make it a three-point game in the fourth
quarter.


Bradford drove inside the Fort
White20-yard line twice in the
fourth quarter.
"We were.in it until the very,
very end," Bradford head coach
Steve Reynolds said. "We
were down three in the fourth.
That's not bad, but we've just
got to finish ball games. We've
got to get them ready to finish
ball games. That's our fault
as coaches. We've got to push
them to get ready for the fourth
quarter."
It was quite an effort, though,
by Dinkins, who. caught six
passes for 144 yards and two
touchdowns. Plus, he had an
interception on defense as well
as the kickoff return that made
things interesting.
"You can't ask for more effort
and for more heart," Reynolds
said of Dinkins.
That performance couldn't


offset the one put forth by Fort
White. The Indians (2-0) rolled
up approximately 400 yards
rushing for the game, with
Williams gaining 269 yards and
scoring four touchdowns on 27
carries. Williams, who had 119
yards and two touchdowns in the
second half, provided the final
score with a 20-yard touchdown
run.
"We've got some defensive
guys banged up right now,"
Reynolds said.
Each team had approximately
200 yards in the first half, but'
the Tornadoes wasted a golden
opportunity early in the first
quarter after defensive lineman
Todderick Reed recovered a
fumble ohii the Fort White 5-yard
line. Bradford had a fumble on
the center-quarterback exchange
on first down, while running
back Jarvis DeSue was dropped


for a 3-yard loss on second
down. An incomplete pass on
third down and a sack on fourth
down ended the series.
On its second possession, Fort
White did drive the ball past
midfield, but Bradford's Clayton
Woods sacked quarterback
Andrew Baker on third-and-7,
forcing the Indians to punt.
SBradford's offense took to the
field at its own 20, but promptly
gave two points to Fort:White
when an errant shotgun snap
resulted in a safety with 27
seconds remaining in the first
quarter.
To make matters worse, Fort
White's Kellen Snider returned
the ensuing free kick 56 yards to
the- Bradford 15. The Bradford
defense,'-made a couple; of
nice plays, with Shwan Aaron
tackling Williams for a 2-yard
loss and Woods pressuring Baker
into an incompletion. However,
on third-and-12, Williams broke
several tackles and' bounced
outside fori a 17-yard touchdown
run 15 seconds into the second
quarter. The PAT put the Indians
up 9-0.
The Tornadoes answered by
showing that they, too, could
score quickly. On the second
play of their ensuing series,
Dinkins hauled in a deep pass
from quarterback Jacob Luke for
a 54-yard touchdown. The PAT
was no good, leaving Bradford
trailing 9-6.
Bradford's defense forced
Fort White to go three and out
on its next series. The offense
responded with a 75-yard
touchdown drive that began with
a 13-yard scramble by Luke
and a key 29-yard reception by

Union JV
team defeats
Keystone 14-6

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Dairon Alexander scored two
touchdowns-both of which
,followed Keystone Heights
miscues-in the Union County
High School junior varsity
football team's 14-6 win on Sept.
12 in Keystone.
' Alexander had touchdown runs
of 3 and 17 yards as the Tigers
'improved to 3-0, following a
season-opening 20-18 victory
over Newberry and a 26-16
victory over Williston on Sept. 5.
, Coach Joe Lipsey said it may
not be the most talented junior
varsity team that has come
through Union County, but it
is a team full of kids who have
good characters and are very
coachable.
"We're excited for them and
for the school," Lipsey said. ,


BHS
Continued from 5B
Chris Barren on a third-and-10
play. Dinkins capped the drive,
catching a pass across the
middle of the field and breaking
tackles on his way to a 30-yard
touchdown at the 7:09 mark of
the second quarter. Barron's PAT
put the Tornadoes up 13-9.
The lead lasted approximately
two minutes as the Indians put
together a 74-yard scoring drive.
Williams had a 26-yard run to
the Bradford 48. Then, on a
third-and-17 play, he scampered
downfield on a reverse for a 55-
yard touchdown for a 1,6-13 Fort
White lead after the PAT.
Bradford's next series did not
get off to a good start, thanks to
a holding penalty, but on third-
and-'15, Luke scrambled for a
16-yard gain and first down
at his own 41. Two straight
incompletions left the Tornadoes
facing third-and-10, but Luke
hooked up with Barren for a 22-
yard gain to the Fort White 37.
Two plays later, Tra'Von Thomas
made a remarkable catch off df a
deflection along the sideline for
a 20-yard gain to the 17.


904-368-0687 I
904-368-0689 f


For the Indians (1-1), it was
a bad start' to the game as they
failed to handle a sky kick,
which Union recovered. Four
plays later, Alexander scored on
a 17-yard run. Tyler McDavid
added the PAT to put the Tigers
up 7-0.
Keystone ;pulled to within
one in the second quarter when


Luke, who finished the half
8-of- 14 for 184 yards, completed
a 7-yard pass to Dinkins before
tossing a 10-yard touchdown
pass to Barren in the corner of
the end zone with 41 seconds left
in the half. Barren, who caught
four passes for 72 yards, added
the PAT to put the Tornadoes up
20-16.
The Indians made a big play
defensively early in the third
quarter when Snider intercepted
a pass, giving his team the ball
at its own 43. Snider later ripped
off a 43-yard run on a fourth-
down play to give Fort White a
first down at the Bradford 6. Two
plays after that, Snider scored
from 5 yards out. The PAT put
the Indians up 23-20'with 2:43
remaining in the third quarter.
, Bradford, went three and
out on the ensuing series, but
Dinkins got the ball back for the
Tornadoes when he intercepted a
Baker pass.
Runs by DeSue-who
finished the game with 64 yards
on 14 carries-and receptions
by Dinkins and Barron helped
the Tornadoes move to the Fort
White 20. Bradford, though,
was eventually forced into a
fourth-and-10 play, with Sanders

It was a good start to the
second half for the Indians
as Chris McLean recovered a
fumble at the Union 45-yard
line. Runs by Terry Giles and
Austin Hogg netted a first down,
but Union's Jerimiah Foster had
a big hit to force a fumble, which

.of the game, covering a distance
of 60 yards. With the PAT, Fort

while assisting a civilian motorist
following an automobile accident.
David's selfless service and

contagious. David declined himself

BorrowedAngels
Borrowed Angels only stay
for a while.'
They touch our hearts with
a simple smile. "
Teaching us things we would
have never known.
Then kiss us tenderly as
they fly home.
Sometimes not understanding
the reasons God hqs within.
You have to start over and that's
where the heartache begins.
Now in Gods arms, it's a small
comfort to those left here.
As we are knelt beside her, won-
dering if her presence is near.
Remembering the way she would
run and dance.
Wanting to hold her little broth-
er when given the chance.
Always wanting her "mm, mm"
fuzzy side down.
When company would come
she'd run around like a clown.
The eagerness offollowing
everything you've done.
From helping feed "Big Boy" to
wanting some gum. .
There are so many things you
see yourself closing your
eyes to find.
Trying to keep up with her mem-
ory and feeling like
you fall behind.
When you see the sun out or a
gust of wind blows through.
Just know that's our Borrowed
Angel saying, "I'm here
and I love you."
We love you and miss you
more everyday!

people who work in education,

part of a collaborative process
to help Bradford County move
forward into the future.
"I'm really optimistic about
everyone's willingness to step
off that island, join together and
overcome any obstacles that are,
in our way," Famrnsworth said.
As its title suggests, Envision
Bradford 2023 is envisioning
what Bradford County will
look like in 2023. Farnsworth
said that's exciting to think
about, but added he's even more
excited about the years leading


get to our goal. Understand."
Afterward,, he concluded,
"Injuries, We just.don't have
the depth that we had last year,
so we've gotta stay healthy.
Tonight, it took a little bit of a
toll on us. We got a lot of little
nicks and bruises that we've got
to get fixed'."
Keystone head coach Chuck
Dickinson could relate.
"We've got a bunch of
bumps and bruises," he said.
"We've got go get them all
healed up and be ready to go for
next week."
He added, "We made some
alignment mistakes in the first
half, and we gave up a couple of
third-and-long plays that killed
us. That's something we can't
do."
That's especially true since


up to 2023-the years that will
determine what 2023 will look
like.
In his closing remarks,
Famrnsworth encouraged those in
attendance to share their passion
about Bradford County.
"Please, just help me in
delivering the message that this
is a great place to work in and
a great place to start a career,
open a business and beconmi
an entrepreneur," Farnsworth
said. "This is the place to bl-
Bradford County."
