Review: The first issue of this ongoing weekly was issued July 26, 1879 under the title Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047402, published by William Wyatt Moore, a native Floridian, a staunch Democrat and an experienced newspaperman. He had previously worked for a newspaper in Tallahassee (FL) and had published newspapers in the Florida cities of Jacksonville, Lake City, Cedar Key and Pensacola. After publishing for a short time as the Weekly Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047403 and reversion back to the Florida Telegraph LCCN: sn95047404, the name was changed to the Starke (FL) Telegraph LCCN: sn95047405. In 1887, Sterling Moore sold a half-interest in the newspaper to I.C. Webb, who became sole owner within a few months and changed the name to the Bradford County (FL) Telegraph LCCN: sn95047406 in 1888. In 1893, Eugene S. Matthews, who had previously worked for newspapers in the Florida cities of Gainesville and Ocala, purchased the Bradford County Telegraph with Ben J. Farmer, who then sold his interest to Matthews in 1898. Eugene S. Matthews published the Bradford County Telegraph for forty years. During this time, he was also elected to the state legislature in 1904, 1907, 1911 and 1923. His son, Eugene L. Matthews, a graduate of Columbia University's School of Journalism, took over the publication in 1933, matching his father's record of forty years as publisher. On his retirement in 1973, he sold the paper to his sons-in-law, Bobby Ferguson and John Miller. The Bradford County Telegraph continues to be published ca. 2007 by John Miller, who also publishes the Lake Region Monitor LCCN: not known to exist and the Union County (FL) Times LCCN: sn95047168. Mark Crawford is the editor. Source: Bradford County Telegraph, July 26, 1979, centennial issue. The Lake Region Monitor is not known to exist and has not been described by any other source.--E.

New seat belt law in effect June 30
Maj. Anthony Allen, commander of the Florida Highway Patrol's Troop G that covers Nassau, Duval, Clay, St. Johns, Flagler, Putnam, Baker, Bradford and Union counties, drew attention to the new provision to Florida's primary safety belt enforcement law that takes effect June 30.
FHP is initiating a statewide safety belt campaign cal led "Click Florida!" this month to educate motorists about Florida's safety belt laws, why it is important to buckle up, and the Dori Slosberg and Katie Marchetti Safety Belt Law.
"Florida has more than 15 million licensed drivers, plus millions of visitors every year," said Allen "Law enforcement officers and emergency workers have witnessed first-hand the severe injury and death that can result from lack of safety belt use. Crashes can happen anytime, but by wearing your safety belt, you can limit your chances of becoming a traffic-related statistic. The Florida Highway Patrol encourages everyone to buckle up. It could save your life."
:. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that Florida's primary safety belt law will prevent more than 1,700 serious automobile crash injuries -every year.

� A pregnancy scare led to the arrest of a Bradford County resident for having sex with a minor.
According to Starke Police Capt. Barry Warren, 21-year-old James Joseph Brewer has been arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a child.
The 13-year-old victim allegedly approached her mother, telling her she thought she was pregnant. When she questioned her daughter, the mother learned of the sexual encounter with the man, which took place in early May.
The mother reported the incident to the police department, which determined through investigation that the suspect had also given the juvenile an alcoholic beverage before the sexual encounter.
Police Chief Jeff Johnson had a warning for those who victimize children.
"Once again, we have stopped an adult from preying on a child. Hopefully this will send a message to those that would prey on the children within this community�we will find you," Johnson said.
Brewer was arrested May 29. He is in the county jail with bond set at $100,000.

Looking to heller enforce rules regarding truancy, the Bradford County School District look its first two cases before Judge Phyllis Rosier on Monday. . �''
Bolh cases are children of parent B rendu Jenkins of Starke, who faces jail time under Florida law because her sons have missed so much school.
The district filed a civil complaint that was heard June 8. School Board Attorney John Cooper made his case by questioning Principal Jason Jennings about the truant, boys and attempts to get them to school.
Jennings testified that out of 180 school days, the sixth-grader had missed 148 days. His brother, a third-grader, had missed 134 days. Both had failed all of their subjects for the 2008-09 school year. Jennings said.
In response to the excessive number' bf absences, Jennings said the school took many steps to get the boys in school, including contact with their mother via mail, phone and home visits. Jenkins said the family signed an attendance contract that was not h6nored. The district even made additional effort to pick up the students and get them to school.
Judge Rosier wanted to know why Jenkins couldn't get her sons to attend.
"You're their mother. It's your job to make them lo go to school." Rosier said.
Jenkins said she gets them ready, but it's taken the principal or police:sometimes coming lo pick them up in order to gel them i n school.
Rosier asked Jenkins if she understood the consequences she is facing because her children have missed so much school. She asked the boys as well, inquiring where they would live if" their mother were sent to jail. They were hesitant lo speak, and the judge was only able to gel one of the boys: to demonstrate he could read. * ;�; '
At the judge's request. Cooper told the courtroom that if found guilty of contempt in, this civil matter, Jenkins could be sentenced to more than five
months jail, That process okjjd be repeated if the truancy is: not remedied. Cooper also said Ihis could become a criminal case, and ihe children could also be removed from the home and placed in foster care.
According to Jenkins, the boys have told her she would be the orje facing the consequences, not thjem. Rosier clarified, however, that (he students could be found in contempt as well and placed in a detention facility.
The judge asked the boys what they thought would happen to; them if they didn't get an education, saying thai even thpse with degrees are having difficulty finding employment in today's market.
",Sorrt.ebqc)y Ihal^&sn'l have a hrgh'isch^rtf di plomitdoesn'l have miijjj'h. of a chance" .she said:
'"I he' goal'1 of ihe'proceeding was not lo embarrass the boys, she said, but come August, if the boys are not in school every day. barring an excused absence, both they would go to detention and their mother to jail: '
Turning to a young lady in an orange inmate uniform with
experience in front of ihe judge. Rosier asked her to explain a bit about what it was like la live in a detention facility�from being locked up every day to being brought lo court in handcuffs.
"It's no life, is it?" Rosier asked.
"No." the girl agreed.
Rosier asked Cooper lo draw up orders for Jenkins to send her sorts to school and for the boys lo attend school, saying they would be found in contempt if they did nol comply.
The judge told the boys that kids get into trouble on the streets. She said if many of the young people seated in the courtroom had been in school instead of involved in drugs and crime, they would not be in court now.
Acknowledging . that possibility must be something that worries their mother. Rosier told the family there are summer programs available to them as well.
"Take advantage of them," she said.adding she hopes she never has to see the family back in

Rep. Adkins reviews legislative session for county commission
Telegraph Editor
State Rep. Janet Adkins was welcomed by the count} commission to talk about what happened during this year's legislative session and some of what the future holds.
Adkins began by discussing the state of the economy.
With growth decelerating, the state's gross domestic product ranks47h in the nation.compared to I2lh in 2006 and second in 2005. Adkins said that< decline in growth has had a tremendous impact on the state budget.
Historically, the state's unemployment rate has been belter than the national average, but today it exceeds that average, she said. Bradford and other north Florida counties are faring better many in central and south Florida, however, where unemployment is above 14 percent in some places.
A global recession, tight credit market, failing home prices are responsi We, Adkins sa4d. TheYe is an excess of homes on the market and a number of foreclosures.
"The good news is the economy will rebound, its just simply a matter of when. Optimistic estimates say April 2010. Others say.third quarter 2010. It's really going to depend on when the prices of the homes get down low "enough that the buyers decide to jump in and to bite," Adkins said.
. She showed a time line that depicted the state economy would be back to normal growth in 2011 or 2012. That means there will be at least one more budget year that the slate will have to tighten its �belt, she said.
For that reason. Adkins said the S5.3 billion in federal stimulus money was split across two budget \ears�the upcoming budget year beginning July I and the year after.
"The reason that we did not use all of it in this budget year is because we're expecting next budget year to be just as bad if not worse." she said.
The state budget for 2009-10 is $66.5 billion, compared to $66.25 billion this year. Even though the budget is larger, it's still down from the years when the state was enjoying budget surpluses. Back then, the state was looking for ways to spend money, Adkins said.
"Fortunately, 1 think the new legislators that have come in understand that the bottom can fall out of the economy just as quickly as it picks up," she said.
Health care and education are thelargest beneficiaries inthestate budget. The breakdown is health care�39 percent, education�32 percent, environmental/ transportation�14 percent, public safety�7 percent, general government�7 percent and judicial�1 percent.
Adkins said she received a number of letters supporting education and health care funding, but given the size of the state's investment, it's difficult not to make cuts when revenue falls short. While the state was able to hold some programs harmless, she said she knew local governments and school districts are still hurting.
Public schools are also hurting because of declining enrollment. Since funding is based on the number of students, districts
receive less monev each time .their student count goes down. A lot of schools planned for growth that has not taken place, she said.
In order to support health care, less money is coming out of the state's general fund. Instead, more is coming from trust funds, and funding was increased overall. Adkins said.
The state also had to generate some new revenue to support the budget. Adkins did not support all proposals to raise revenue. She voted agai nst gambl i ng expansion and new cigarette taxes. She supported fee increases, most of the revenue from which would go to education in the coming year, she said.
Adkins spent a lot of time and energy defending Northeast Florida State Hospital in Baker County from state plans lo privatize it. Bradford County and the city of Starke supported the fight by passing resolutions against privatization. for which Adkins thanked them. Commissioners recognized the hospital had a number of employees who live in this county as well as Union County.
It was a fight that had to be won three times, she said. While the state was looking to save around $3.million by privatizing the facility, Adkins argued the state could save more than,,$8 million if it simply paid for the beds that were occupied instead of paying for the total number of beds in the hospital.
Adkins said the legislature passed 238 out of 2.369 bills in this past session. A typical session would pass around 400. but this was no typical session
because of the focus on budget, she said. Between the budget and stepping up for the hospital. Adkins called her first session a fight.
Highlighting some of the other issues taken up this year, she said the Legislature made Citizens Property Insurance Corporation more competitive and more actuarially sound by allowing rate increases. The Legislature also created a property tax exemption to encourage land to be placed in conservation, potentially replacing some of the state's burden to buy land for conservation purposes, she said.
Continuing the topic of property taxes, Adkins discussed an approved ballot measure that would allow voters to limit taxable value increases on non homestead property. Another measure will ask voters whether to grant additional homestead exemption to first-time homebuyers, a measure that could help get homes off the market, she said.
Legislators took action to keep workers' compensation rates low and put money into attracting businesses to create jobs, she added.
One of the biggest accomplishments was expanding the Small County Outreach Program to allow counties to use grant awards to build new roads, improve drainage and repai' bridges in addition to resurfacing, although funding was cut back. The Small County Road Assistance Program was also saved from sunsetting and a provision tying funding to maximum millage rates was removed.
For Bradford Count), workforce education dollars, and money for adults with disabilities totals almost $1 million. Adkins said. K-12 education funding t is down almost $1 million, or another 3.72 percent on top of prior cuts, due in part to declining enrollment.
"I know that's a big hit, especially when you're dealing with a small county." Adkins said.
With regard to infrastructure, the county will receive roughly $8 million, including the Department of Transportation's planned resurfacing of S.R. 100.
Chairman Doyle Thomas said Adkins had been an ally for the county in Tallahassee, and he and the other commissioners took turns thanking Adkins for her support.
Commissioner Ross Chandler expressed concern about the amount of new fees placed
on Floridians and the level at which the state funds education compared to other states. Adkins said funding level doesn't always translate into better schools.
Chandler also said the state and its regulations are not business friendly, and Adkins said the stale has tried to streamline environmental and other requirements because ,of competition with olher slates for these businesses. She also pointed to investment in infrastructure as a way the state is trying to spur growth.
Adkins thanked the commission for the office space granted to her in Ihe courthouse. She said it's been a big help to her and the citizens of Bradford Counts.
She also thanked Malcolm Hill for helping her locate a house rental in Tallahassee and getting her out of a hotel.

'What is a Mother's Love?
My dear, Rebcckah Lynn Shcmer, when you were born, I 'named you Rebeckah, from the Bible. You grew up in church and turned out to be quite a lady. When you were eight years old, you came to me and wanted to give your heart to God and be baptised and live for God. You finished school and always helped the old and young. You would stop and pick up an injured animal along the road, bring it home, doctor it, let it go. You took care of your Grandpa and me; you cooked; you cleaned for me, never asking anything in return. You were always working, never complained, you got married and have three beautiful children. God's way of paying me back. I've seen you riding on a moweivniowing grass when you were eight months pregnant so you could have the weekend oil to spend with your family to chill out. You work in the yard, you clean the house, you cook, you lake the kids to school, you do the laundry, you buy the groceries, you pay the bills, you take the kids to the doctor when they are sick. You ask nothing in return, just to l>e happy. For someone who has never time lor herself, I think you are the most beautiful person in the world, just by being yourself. Oh, yes, you also have a job working outside the home live clays a week, alter taking the kids to school. What more could a person ask lor. you are the richest person in the world, you have a heart ol gold and your Grandpa and I are proud to have you tor a granddaughter. Always remember, have faith; it can move mountains. Always remember, I thank God each and every day for you and my great-grandkids. You have made me the happiest person in the world.

Smoking is dangerous, even
By Yolanda Thomas Tobacco Prevention Specialist, Bradford County Health Department
Most people know that there are dangers linked to using tobacco . products, but did you know that breathing smoke from someone else's cigarette, pipe or cigar can make you and your family sick
According to the Centers for Disease Control, "secondhand smoke contai ns over 50 chem icals that cause cancer and heart disease." It is even more harmful for children since children are often in places where they may not have the choice or ability to remove themselvesi from exposure to secondhand smoke, such as in the home or in their parents' car.
That's why it is up to adults to make sure they do not smoke � around or in places where their children are. Some things that parents and caregivers of children can do to eliminate the amount of secondhand smoke children are exposed to would be to make the home smoke-free.That means not smoking in the home or allowing others to.smoke there�smoking outside instead or seeking help to quit smoking.
' Childrrerruwh�live in homes where smoking is; alloweidjare at more risk to have health problems such asthma, ear infection and are at a higher risk of dying from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
If you are interested in quitting tobacco you can attend a free community cessation class here in your community. For information on the next class please contact the Bradford County Health Department at (904) 964-7732 or the Union County Health Department at (386) 496-3211.

Local gymnasts impress at state competition
�,i Six girls from USA Gymnastics -vof Florida began preparing for ^competition last fall, progressing v:,tremendously to improve their Ib Strength, flexibility, balance, ^-"coordination, teamwork and self-'"�confidence.
In January they began. ..�competing.
cq USAGFtraveledtoOcalaforits 'first state qualifier and left with L,all six girls scoring high enough ; to be invited to participate in the -state championships.
Their second and third state --qualifiers in Perry and Orange City weren't without individual setbacks. One girl even chose to leave the team.The girls' routines were getting better, but the other teams' were as well. The USAGF girls were encouraged to do their best and to have fun. Everything else would take care of itself.
After four more weeks of preparation,Kierston Boatwright, Emily YakeJ, Olivia Archer, Brooke Tschorn and Madison
Brooks traveled to Orlando and Disney's Wide World of Sports Milk House for two days of competition against other gyms from all over the state.
Day one, Kierston and Emily hit their routines and scored all around scores of 32.550 and 33.025, 'respectively, bettering their scores from any of their previous meets. Emily walked away with a first-place vault score and a second-place all-around score in her division.
Next to perform was Brooke. She hit strong routines also; but it was her uneven bars routine that really shined. She placed first on bars, which helped up her all-around score to 34.125, her best ever. �
Day twoof competition brought more excitement. Olivia was the next gymnast to go and she had the meet of the season. Scoring more than three and a half points higher than she did at her first qualifier, Olivia placed second
on beam and second all around with a score of 35.525. This score also earned Olivia an elite pin, an honor bestowed on those scoring 35 points or higher.
Madison, being the youngest competitor from USAGF, had the distinction of already scoring 35 plus points in the third qualifier and was therefore competing in the highest division. Besting her highest qualifying score by .325 with a 35.450, she too earned her elite pin.
USA Gymnastics of Florida has been teaching gymnastics 1988 and built its own facility in Starke in 2006.
Persistent parents and coach Judi Markell (formerly the head coach at University of Florida), are credited with contributing to the success of the Level 4 competitive program.

'Mobile home' ordinance defeated in Starke
uc Telegraph. Editor
!., -�-:-
�X, The Starke City Commission ultimately turned down an ordinance that would have � � allowed the city operations , manager to issue temporary use *" permits on a case by case basis. '�' Among other things, passage of the ordinance would have in allowed for temporary placement v: of mobile homes in "-areas not m zoned for them. ,;. Caught between granting a rn, rezoning request or not several ... weeks ago, some interest was ; expressed by the commission in adding a hardship provision to . the city's land development code that would allow the rezoning applicant to temporarily place a if' mobile home on her property so her daughter could be close by for family reasons.
What the city eventually advertised was an ordinance that was much broader than originally intended and that invested-decision-making authority with a'' the operations manager instead
of the commission. 01 Commissioner Tommy Chastai nquestioned the renewable cy. two-yeartim&framedescribed in la j the.temporary.; use* ordinance. Hfe?: also questioned whether these j-jf, temporary permits would qualify n� as spot zoning. Even though 1,'.. Zoning Director Nora Thompson said a property's actual zoning would not be affected by such a 1" permit, Chastain pointed out the v; ordinance allows the applicant '�' to get around the intended use no requirements for two or more ):>i years.
rlil .' Because the ordinance did not Because hardship was not specifically defined, Will Sexton
from the city attorney's office said the operations manager would be allowed to use his discretion in determining who is granted a permit.
Commissioner Carolyn Spooner said having discretion to make that decision did not necessarily mean granting a permit to anyone who applied.
Chastain said, however, the ordinance opens up the entire city for what had been proposed for one area.
"I just don't know that that's good for Starke," he said.
He also wasn't sure who should be making this decision�the operations manager or the city commission.
Spooner said she preferred for the matter to come before the commission, a preference Operations Manager Ricky Thompson shared. - Whoever had that discretion. Commissioner Travis . Woods said it would be difficult to say yes to one applicant and no to another.:Jf it became difficult to say no, trailers would be popping up all over the place, he said.
Some citizens who opposed the initial rezoning request returned to oppose the- proposed ^TQrdifiaflise, including Amanda;. Hudson, wTio said passing the ordinance would be a setback after years of restricting the placement or mobile homes in the city. In today's economy, the commission could be faced with a number of hardship cases that go beyond medical circumstances, she warned.
Mayor Wilbur Waters, a proponent of the ordinance, said he believed the city had hardship provisions years ago. He said while zoning serves a purpose, he had a problem telling landowners what they can and cannot do with their properties. He believes cases such as the one presented to the commission weeks ago do constitute hardships and exceptions should be made.

"It's hard for me to sit and try to deny someone being able to put a nice mobile home.on a' piece of property," Waters said, although he said he understood where others were coming from.
Questioned about who would police the two-year time limit and what would happen if it were violated, the commission could not give an answer. The same was true when it came down to what circumstances would and would not qualify for a temporary use permit.
Waters gave up the gavel during the commission meeting in order to move that the ordinance be approved. Spooner supported the motion, with both agreeing that there would be no permit extension granted beyond two years and that the decision would rest with the commission-instead of the operations . manager. Even with those conditions," the ordinance was defeated 3-2. with Commissioner Danny. Nugent, Woods and Chastain voting against it.
O'Reilly store given break on signage
The city of Starke's mew O'Reilly Auto Parts store was allowed to erect a nonconforming sign since the city commission plans on relaxing sign standards, though it has yet to do so.
The city operations, manager said the plan was to suspend the existing sign requirements while work on the sign ordinance is completed. He said the current ordinance is too restrictive and argued that the city needed to work with businesses�O'Reilly in particular, since it is opening in a matter of days.
Other businesses in the past that wanted around the city's sign regulations had to seek variances in order to exceed signage limits
Clockwise from top left: Emily Yakel, Brooke Tschorn, Madison Brooks, Olivia Archer and Kierston Boawright.
that included application fees and public notice that such a variance had been requested.
Consideration of this impromptu waiver was not even on the commission's agenda for the evening.
Spooner expressed discomfort with making ah exception to the rules.
"I,just want to make sure that
we follow our own rules. I don't have a problem trying to work with businesses, but I want" to do it within the guidelines thaf we've established," she said.,
Proposed changes to the sign ordinance have not been workshopped, nor has there-been any public input on what changes should, or should not be made, although (here was brief
talk of rushing an ordinance1 to advertisement and even instructing the city board of adjustment to rule in favor of a variance for the store.
The board as a whole eventual ly instructed Thompson to waive the signage requirements for O'Reilly Auto Parts pending the concurrence of the city attorney that it was the right thing to do.

The Effects of Text Formatting on Comprehension Levels of Struggling and On-Level Readers: A Tvvo-Ycar Study
UC horse has first case of EEE
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has reported the first case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in a horse in Union County.
Statewide, this is the 14th horse to be reported with EEE virus infection in 2009. Three other cases were reported in neighboring Columbia County. . According to Dr. Mike Short with FDACS, Florida has averaged 75 confirmed cases each year during the past 20 years. In most all of them, the horses had not been vaccinated within the past year and many have no vaccine history at all. The sad news is that over 90 percent of horses infected with EEE die. The message to horse owners is to vaccinate.
EEE virus occurs naturally in cycles involving birds and
mosquitoes in' freshwater, swampy areas. Activity in Florida usually peaks between May and August. EEE does not often escape from the swampy areas because the mosquitoes involved prefer to feed upon birds. For this reason, human and animal cases are rare, however, when they do occur, they are often severe.
Symptoms of clinical encephalitis by EEE in humans begin 3-10 days after a bite by an infected mosquito and can include a sudden onset of fever, general muscle pain and headache. Many individuals will progress to more severe symptoms such as seizures and coma. Approximately one-third of all people with clinical encephalitis caused by the EEE virus will die from the disease.
Your personal mosquito
protection efforts should include the Five D's of prevention:
� Dusk and dawn - Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are seeking blood. For many species, this is during the dusk and dawn hours.
� Dress - Wear clothing that covers most of you skin when outdoors.
� Deet - When the potential exists for exposure to mosquitoes, repellents containing Deet are recommended. Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are other repellent options.
� Drainage - Check around your home to rid the area of standing water where mosquitoes can lay their eggs. Elimination of breeding sites is one of the keys to prevention.
Other tips include cleaning out eaves, troughs and gutters.
Remove old tires and drain tires used on playgrounds by drilling holes in them. Turn over or remove empty, plastic pots. Pick up all beverage containers and cups left lying around. Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water. Pump out bilges on boats. Replace; water in birdbaths' and pet or other animal feeding dishes at least once a week. Change, water in plant trays, including hanging plants, at least"Once a. week. Remove vegetation or obstructions in drainage ditches that prevent the flow of water.
If you would like more information on EEE and its prevention, please contact; Richard Land at the Union County Health Department at (386)496-3211.

For some reliable KHHS staff, school's now out permanently. Shown above are retirees (l-r) Vice Principal Janie Phillips, secretary Denise
Akridge, math instructor Eileen Smith and art instructor John Allen.
KHHS says farewell to retirees
Student Contributor
After years upon years of constant hard work, four Keystone Heights High School faculty and staff members are retiring.
Janie Phillips has spent 35 years in the educational Field. Before becoming vice-principal, she had been an assistant principal for eight years. Before that, Phillips was a teacher.
According to Phillips the best part of .her job' is, "Observing children mature into young adults. It tickles me pink to hear a student say I helped in their success."
Speaking of her own education during high school .she stated, "I was a B-C student. I hated school with a passion. When I reached college, I had a really awesome professor who thought I would do well in teaching."
With her career decided, Phillips went on to spend 32 years as a "Fighting Indian."
'Thirty-five years in this
profession is enough. You need 30 years to retire, and I'm Five over. I really don't want to reach 40 years. That is why I am retiring now."
The vice-principal said she knows the Lord will open another door for her. She is unsure about what's next, but said she will miss the students and staff.
Before going to work for a successionof KHHS principals, Denise Akridge was a library clerk at the high school for 16 years. Add the two together, and that's a whopping 32 years in service to iocal schools.
"When I was in high school, I didn't think I would get through college, so I chose a semi-easy job, a secretary," Akridge said. She added that the best part for her was that the hours were perfect for her family life. Having four children and working from early morning to early afternoon just fit her lifestyle.
Akridge knows what she will be doing after retiring. "I am going to spend my time with
my grandchildren, volunteer at my church, and I might even travel."
John Allen is a teacher and an art lover, and his job has let him do what he loves. Off and on, he taught art at KHHS for 30 years. He also taught math for six years and served as the school's yearbook sponsor.
His choice of career came after receiving an associate's degree from Miami-Dade Community College. He was soon accepted into UF, where he met a girlfriend who majored in art education. After seeing how much fun she had ' doing her job, he soon followed suit. Allen had always wanted to teach, but until that point he was unsure of what to teach.
Allen is still at the top of his game, but, sadly, he has no choice but to retire. This is his fifth year in the Deferred Retirement Option Program, a point at which the state is now forcing teachers to retire.
Allen said, "I feel like I have had the best job in the world. Thank you for a great 31 years at KHHS."
Next, Allen may teach classes for the Florida Virtual School or at the Departure of Defense. He hopes to do some art of his own, now that he has some free time.
Eileen Smith has taught math at KHHS for 34 years, and said "The best part of teaching is seeing "the light go on" in students when they finally understand a concept. Another great feeling is when former students see you in the community and come up and thank you for what you taught them."
She said she hates to say goodbye to all the students she has taught. Smith has been at KHHS so long that she has taught generations of students' families.
Smith also said she would not miss the constant paperwork that teachers face during the school year. ,
"Retiring has been a hard decision to make because I love the kids," Smith said. Her retirement plans include traveling with her husband.

ABOVE: Cheryl King and Sandy Park tend to a row of hanging plants. RIGHT: Wayne and Sandy Park receive the Yard of the Month certificate from Garden Club of the Lakes member Cheryl King.
Parks earn 'Yard of Month'
The Garden Club of the Lakes' Yard of the Month Award for May goes to Wayne and Sandy Park of Pointvievv Road in Keystone Heights .
"Our yard is family, a little piece of everyone," Sandy said.
Many plants and pieces of yard art were given to the couple by family and friends, like the bird of paradise given by Wayne 's dad, Ralph, or the splash plant Sandy says is from her mom and the oxalis per- capie which belonged to Wayne's grandmother. Yard .art made by Sandy 's sister and brother-in-law is placed amongst the plants.
The yard is totally enveloped
by giant scrub oaks which help shade the many varieties of plants.
Leather leaf ferns are intermingled with crepe myrtles of red, purple, and pink. Legustrum trim all around the house is mixed with giant pink azaleas throughout the front and back yards. Japanese plum, miniature gardenia, apple,tree, .laruapedulum, pink variegated pittosporum, magnolia and holly red tip are just a few of the plants that adorn the Park yard.
Woodelia with sunny yellow flowers surround an oak tree, which, visually, makes the red mulch stand out. The smell
of Confederate jasmine and honeysuckle waft through the air to remind you that it is spring.
Plants normally considered house plants are planted everywhere. Tucked here and there are very unusual mixtures of green edge and silver streaked fittonia, pilea, corn plants, spotted cadiaeum, rubber plants and propeller plants with orange and red flowers and thick waxy leaves.
To nominate a church, yard, or business in Melrose or Keystone Heights for Yard of the Month, call Deirdre (352) 281-3026 or Cheryl (352) 473-1387..

So I tell them. .
Today, .Ford Motor Companyhas:separated itself from other automakers. We did not accept bailout money and did not file for - Chapter 11. Instead, Ford remains independent and is in a position to succeed. CEO Alan Mulally assured hie when he said, "The real difference is in our plan, the strength of our great new products, and our quality, fuel efficiency, safety and value/' ��� '
As far as I'm concerned, it's not bragging if you back it up. Now, here's every reason you'll ever need to buy a new Ford; .. Today, not even Honda.or Toyota can'beat Ford quality.1 Plus, Ford makes 15 vehicles that earned the Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety � that's almost double what.To_yo.ta earned. And Ford has more five-star safety ratings than any other automaker.2 Now that's the American way . -.�(�'/'[�:.v
The new Ford Fusion is the most fuel-efficient midsize sedan iri America, The Fusion Hybrid gets 41 mpg city3 � that's 8 mpg better than Toyota Camry HybridI Plus, the gas-powered Fusion beats the gas-powered Camry, Accord and Altima;
11447 U� Highway mi imiu * stmm PL 1-800-784-0934 ^getyourford.
Ford Escape Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient SUV on.the planet;witjij34 mpg in ^ the city.4'
And the Ford F-150 was named the 2009 -Motor Trend Truck of the Year,� and F-Se-ries remains the best-selling line of trucks in America for 32 years running.
Oh, and by the way, the voice-activated SYNC� systems in Ford vehicles isn't- : available on Honda, Toyota or any other manufacturer. They missed the boat on that one.
Recently, speaking of Ford and the economy, CEO Alan Mulally said, "As we come through this, we're going to be a turbo machine on the other side."
He wasn't joking. This summer, Ford will introduce the new 2010 Ford Taurus with the available EcoBoost� V6 engine.0 Designed with direct injection and twin turbochargers, EcOBoost will create V8 power with V6 efficiency. How's that for American ingenuity? Shortly, the same twin-turbo technology will be applied to 90% of our engines. Then, in 2010, Ford will start rolling out electric vehicles. I'm sure they'll be even more fantastic.
So there are plenty of reasons to buy a new Ford � and not simply because we're - � American. We have great products for you right now and even more on the way.
Today, there is new momentum at Ford. ...We invite you to drive, with us into the future. Drive .green. Drive safe/Drive smart. Drive quality you can believe in. For more information, visit thefordstory.com.
At Town & Country, we employ 24 members of our community-members who are committed to earning your business. And your trust. '
Perhaps even'more important are roots that run deep into Bradford County. Like $3,000 in scholarships at Bradford High School with our FFA Program. Together we've raised $12,000 for Bradford High through Ford's DRIVE ONE 4-UR .SCHOOL program with more to come in the fall.
Visit us at Town and Country. We hope to see you soon. And we hope to see you Drive Onel

Veterans reminisce about D-Day at Camp Blanding
� Telegraph Staff Writer
A museum's displays can tell a story, but nothing can .document history quite like talking to someone who has actually lived it.
That is why "amidst the displays of World War II .weapons, communications equipment and other paraphernalia utilized by U.S. soldiers, Greg Parsons, the curator of the Camp Blanding
Museum, felt it important to invite those who had those who had actually served during World War II to be a part of the museum's recognition of the 65lh anniversary of D-Day.
jrlt's one thing to read Tom Brokaw's book, "The Greatest Generation," Parsons said. It's quite another thiog Jo actually talk to people who have lived through experiences most of us have only read about. "What's written in the
history books is one thing," Parsons said, "but. when you meet the guys who were actually there and who fought in that battle, you kind of realize, 'Ok, there's a lot more to it than what's in the history books."
Several veterans were on hand vvho either landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day or who escorted men and equipment to the beaches that day. None, at that time, knew
World War II veterans (l-r) Mario Patruno, Francis Heppner, Dorman Clayton, Lionel Capoldo, Thomas Santarsiero and Levi Starling shared their memories during the observance of the 65 anniversary of D-Day at the Camp Blanding Museum.
i ril
they were participants of an event that would live on in history. As Lionel Capoldo of Lake City put it, "It wasn't until later that I realized it was supposed, to be something important."
Francis Heppner, who landed on Utah Beach at approximately 9:30 a.m. that day, said, "All we thought of was getting off the beach."
Heppner, Capoldo and several other veterans shared their stories with those vvho asked and placed a wreath at the museum's D-Day monument in honor of those who fought and lost their lives on those beaches. Capoldo tried to say a few words to the assembled crowd prior to the wreath placement, but he just could not get many words out, citing the fact he was not prepared to make any kuid of speech.
However, it was apparent Capoldo was also overcome with emojion.
"We were the ones who took those guys up to the beach," the Navy man said.
When asked afterward what D-Day meant to him, Capoldo replied that it was hard to say.
"It was a point in my life where I. was 18 years old and really didn't know what the heck I was doing," he said. "The boat I was on, we escorted the first-wave troops. We carn^-.in again with the second and the third (waves), and we stayed off the beach real close. My boat was a converted landing craft, which

was made into a gun boat."
Levi Starling of Jacksonville was another Navy man who participated .in D-Day. His landing craft tank made its first approach to Omaha Beach at approximately 6:25 a.m, carrying DD (duplex-drive) tanks.
"We landed just before the troops did, about three to five-minutes before they came in," Starling said. "We retracted from the beach after we let them off. The guns were firing

The second trip to shore, after a return to the cargo ship for reloading, was rough, Starling said.
'The dead and the dying and the debris had started floating out," he said.
Starling, whose craft made three landings, remembered seeing an infantryman running out of the smoke and flames on � the beach. He said he could imagine the soldier, who was wounded, thinking to himself that he was brought aboard thF beach upon an LCT, so if he could reach the one Starling was aboard, he would be safe.
"He just fell forward," Starling said. "That's when we were retracting. There wasn't anything we could do for him."
By the time; Heppner's battalion reached the beach, the infantry had pushed the Germans back so that there was no small-arms fire on the beach, Heppner said. However, the Germans were still shelling the beach.
"We walked up on the beach," Heppner said. "In the water, there were bodies of soldiers rolling around in the surf. They were the infantry that had been killed in the water. Their skin was starting to turn black already from being in the water."
It brought home the reality of the situation for Heppner and all those young men who had never seen such sights.
"The bodies were our introduction to war�that war was real and that people got killed,'' he said.
Heppner said there were no casualties in his battalion . during that landing on the beach. Capoldo said his group, which consisted of 1,500 men, was supposed to sustain high casualties that day.
"Fortunately, we didn't, although my best friend in the Navy did get killed," Capoldo said.
Veteran Thomas Santarsiero of Gainesville said he should have been killed his first day of battle. He also said he should have been on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day.
Santarsiero, who served in the 28,h Division, was in�Camp Shanks in New York, preparing to go overseas. The ship he and the other soldiers were on, however, began sinking in the harbor. They were offloaded and then split

into two groups, depending upon what letter their last names started with. Santarsiero was in the group of soldiers that remained in the States^ while a transport carried the rest to their original destination.
The group of soldiers Santarsiero was with did eventually ship out. Santarsiero remembers being in England on D-Day.
"The sky was black with air 'planes going over to France," he said. "That was the day of the invasion."
Santarsiero arrived in France ,10 days after D-Day. There was no fighting on the beach he set foot on, but the carnage that greeted his eyes left him imagining just how bad it was for those in the first waves of the invasion.
"It had to be pretty rough on those boys," Santarsiero said.
Not that Santarsiero did not have his share of rough experiences, whether it was fighting among the hedgerows in France or fighting in the Huertgen Forest along the Belgium-Germany border.
Then, there was that first day when Santarsiero said he should have been killed. He remembered being on an elevated road inland, talking to a soldier who was sitting by a tree and holding a shovel.
"A mortar landed," Santarsiero said. "It picked me up and slammed me against a tree. One guy, half his arm was missing. Another one, part of his leg was gone. The guy sitting there, he's still sitting there looking straight ahead with his shovel, but he isn't moving. I went over and checked on him. A piece of shrapnel had pierced him. It went into his heart. He was killed instantly."
Santarsiero was attempting to introduce himself to the soldier by the tree" before the mortar landed. As it was, Santarsiero said he remembers only four names of people who served alongside him in his unit.
"They weren't there more than a couple of days," he said. "They came in and they were gone. The casualty rate was so high. We never really got to know each other."
1 Like Santarsiero, Lake City lisideflgjj Dorman Clayt6ri"%d he was fortunate to not have been involved in the invasion on D-Day. Clayton,; who "served with the 186'h Field Artillery Battalion, said his unit was supposed to have gone ashore on D-Day, but did not do so until two days
"The beach was pretty well cleaned off at that time," Clayton said.
Once the group he was with stepped on the beach, an hour or two was devoted to cleaning equipment.
"Our equipment was waterproofed with Cosmoline," Clayton said. "We didn't know whether we were going to go off into the water or not."
Clayton, who trained at Camp Blanding as a member of the 31s' "Dixie" Division, would go on to fight in the Battle of the Bulge. He sustained a hand wound during the battle, but said it was nothing serious. Several men with him, he said, were wounded during the battle, but only one seriously so.,
"They sent him back to a hospital," Clayton said. "I don't know what happened to him. He never did come back to us."
Did that soldier wind up giving his life? So many did, which is part of the reason why Starling has never returned to Normandy. He had opportunities to go on the 50'h and 60lh anniversaries of D-Day, but said he changed his mind each time at the last minute.
For Starling, there is more than one "D" in D-day.
"I'm afraid I couldn't take it, to go back, because that's what I saw (when I was there): death, dying and destruction," Starling said.
Clayton said he and other World War II veterans do not want the younger generation to grow up without knowing about these soldiers who gave their lives. However, Clayton said he does not think there is not much interest in the schools or on the part of students when it comes to teaching and learning about World War II, something that hit home when he visited a junior high school.
"I talked to two different classes about World War II and most of the students were not interested in what I had to say," he said. . >
Parsons can understand what Clayton was talking about because he feels that while D-Day still ' holds great significance in Europe, especially in Normandy, it has become just another day here in the U.S. That is why Parsons hoped that people-especially children�would visit the Cai�R Blanding Museum ^dujpg^jts D-Dayv observance and talk to the' veterans who were present.
"This . group of gentlemen stepped up big time, not just for this country, but for the world, really," Parsons said. "It's amazing when you hear these guys, and talk to them."

Homicide investigation near McRae
Detectives from the Clay County Sheriffs Office robbery-homicide unit are investigating a tip that a homicide occurred 28 years ago near a location in the McRae area, close to the Putnam County border.
According to the tip, a man was killed and buried on a pro^rty . off Montana, Trail. ; -"Acclrd-ingf'-to CGSO records, : no one ever reported the alleged victim missing or reported his death to officials.'
In a statement released by CCSO, a sheriffs office spokesman said CCSO was not at liberty to divulge the names of any of the people involved. CCSO is working closely with the state attorney's office to maintain the integrity of this investigation.
Recently, a person came forward with information
about a death and an investigation began that includes, a search of the Montana Trail property.
No one involved with the original incident remains in that area. The mobile home on the site of the suspected incident has been moved and replaced multiple times in the past 28 years and the current residents are not in any way related to the investigation.
The attempt this week to locate a body that has been buried for 28 years involved large and small specialized equipment. From bulldozers to handheld shovels, CCSO personnel are working to excavate portions of the 10-�acre property to determine if someone is buried there.
In addition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation spent two days this week at the site assisting CCSO personnel. Their involvement also included the use of a highly-trained cadaver dog.
At this time, detectives have not uncovered any physical^ evidence and they continue their work at the site.
The CCSO release noted that because the ongoing investigation involved a not-yet-located victim and a suspect not yet arrested, the information was purposely general in nature. A detailed follow-up release will become available if there are further developments.
Charges added to suspect of multiple break-ins
A Lacrosse man who was arrested May 31 by Union County Sheriff's Office Deputy Kevin Hilliard as the suspect in the burglary of two different Lake Butler homes has now been charged with being involved in incidents at
three other homes in the area.
Angel Fuentes, 25, of Lacrosse was charged June 2 with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and petit theft after items stolen from a garage in Lake Butler were found ,to be in his possession at the time of his May 31 arrest.
Two counts of interruption of telephone service with intent to commit burglar) were also added June 2 after it was learned that Fuentes had allegedly cut the telephone lines to two other residences in the same area.

Adjusting to reality
The national economy is in the doldrums, and while there's talk of an upturn, the fact remains the nation will never return to the level of pseudo-wealth experienced in recent years, fueled by big bank and insurance schemes ignoring moral ethics and sound business practices in order to make a fast buck. We have learned a lesson at a price to be paid by generations yet unborn. -r
In response to the recession (the situation is a long way from the 1930s depression), government-funded agencies are being required to reduce expenditures, even at the cost of cutting programs. Commissioners and legislators have attempted to hold the line oh taxes by raising fees, increasing "sin" taxes (mainly on tobacco products), abandoning some programs and reducing "pork" from the budget.
In light of current budget restraints, sweeping all across the nation is a movement that reduces cost of government big-time and improves services to the public at the same time. That phenomenon Is found in the consolidation of city police departments with the county sheriffs office to establish a single countywide law-enforcement agency. The system has been shown to function equally well in metropolitan areas (think Miami-Dade) or small communities (think . Lake Butler). ,
But would consolidation work in Starke and Bradford County?
Sheriff Gordon Smith thinks it is the wave of the future. On the local scene, Smith is the only individual to have held both positions�Starke chief of police formerly and Bradford County sheriff currently. Believing that combining the two agencies provides better service for city and county ;i isn't a power grab by Smith; ^he held that opinion long before his election to the county office.
amitn s tavorable opinion of consolidation isn't snared by everyone because there are those with personal reasons to hold on to the status quo, mainly protecting turf. We would hope our elected
officials will rise above selfish interests and make an honest appraisal of the proposed benefits available.
What do proponents see as benefits of combining the two offices? One is reduction in cost of enforcing laws throughout the county. Smith estimates the city of �tarke can save $300,000 the first year, and possibly more in succeeding years. The largest single savings might come from closing the police station on Edwards Road, eliminating the cost of utilities that amount to $30,000-plus per year. Other savings may come from volume purchasing and elimination of duplicating records-keeping.
Smith does not envision any loss of positions in fairness to all personnel. If excessive personnel should prove to be the case, adjustment will be by attrition or mutually agreeable job transfer.
The chief of police position is protected in the city charter and will remain as outlined in the document, according to Smith. Incumbent Chief of Police Jeff Johnson will be offered the dual title of chief deputy and chief of police, with the assigned duty of commanding the contingent of officers assigned to working within the city.
Starke's police department generates very few complaints, signifying a stable population base in the city and maintaining a proper balance in enforcing laws. The proposal for consolidation in no way reflects upon the operation of the Starke police department, nor does it denigrate department personnel..
But Starke's police department isn't accredited and, as far as is known, has no plans to become fully accredited. Smith, while he was in the chief's position, said SPD is in compliance with possibly a majority of the requirements, but the cost of becoming fully accredited is prohibitive for small municipalities, such as Starke, but it may be possible in a larger joint city-county agency. Attaining full compliance in accreditation is a worthy goal, and with a limited population as found in Bradford County,
combining the two agencies is the only means to the desired end.
Approximately 100 years ago, policemen may have been called "flatfoot," a derogatory term stemming from their pounding the pavement while walking a beat, but today a career in law enforcement can be a rewarding life with pay commensurate with the responsibility of the position and having- . enhanced retirement benefits. While individuals may function as a professional in small departments, professionalism is a term difficult to define, but, like an obscenity, which we cannot describe, "we know it when we see it." Professionalism has more to do with the department than with the individual and 1 usually refers to education, training and discipline of personnel, with advantages accruing to departments and agencies with a larger contingency of personnel.
There is something to be said for the two local agencies, staffed with hometown men and women having roots deep in Bradford County soil �men and women with whom we ?vvent to school (or perhaps we went to school with their parents) or men and women we see each Sunday in church, but that familiarity doesn't give us a free pass to disregard the law. Having a larger agency isn't going to change the personnel; local men and women will continue.to get preferential treatment, all things being equal, and that is the way it should be. However, a local officer, trained in Starke, will have a better opportunity for employment and advancement if his background is grounded in a larger department.
At this time it would be presumptuous to say, "Let's integrate the two agencies right away," but it may be an idea whose-time has come. At the moment, � there are more questions man answers, but men and women of good should be looking at the situation and make a recommendation to the two governing bodies, the city and county commissioners. The ball is in their court. By Buster- Rahn, Telegraph editorialist
We should have fear today
Dear Editor:
I've never in my life had any fear of our safety in the United States until lately. And I believe we have good reason to be. We have two wars going on and everywhere you look you can see foreigners running motels, hotels, and just about every fast food store. To me, this is very strange when a few years back this never happened;
Now the U.S. president is going around to our enemies and telling them that we want a
good relationship with them. Would you get close enough to a rattlesnake to make friends? I don't think so.
You can't say that we are as safe as we used to he. Look what happened to the Twin Towers in New York City. How did we not question these terrorists that barely spoke English to come over here and train in our country to learn to fly passenger jets? To me, this would have been something to check out. Anytime fools will attach an explosive to kill innocent people, how can you feel safe? By blowing themselves up in order to carry out their mission shows what
they think of life. Some of these same kind of people the president is visiting and embracing.
For myself, I can't feel safe when some countries in no way likes us has nuclear power that would not hesitate to use it on us.
Look at tne newspapers and television about all this, in reality it could happen. This should put fear in all of us. Let's pray that there will be no future attacks on the United States. I believe God is our most reliable safety valve. God bless America.

FPL can answer questions
Dear Editor:
......Florida Power & Light
Company would like to express our sincere appreciation to the people of Bradford County for your support and feedback during our recent open house about the Florida EnergySecure Line.
The purpose of the open house was to explain our plan and hear from the local community about the Florida EnergySecure Line and its proposed corridor that would be constructed along the eastern portion of Florida. We are truly grateful for your involvement and input.
FPL is investing to make our infrastructure stronger, smarter, cleaner and more efficient. Currently, our state is faced with a challenge: the infrastructure required to deliver natural gas to power plants in Florida,is at or near capacity.
If approved, the proposed Florida EnergySecure Line would help ensure a reliable supply of natural gas for the production of clean power for our state and customers, securing this vital source of energy for generations to come.
The Florida EnergySecure Line will also deliver a much needed positive economic impact in the form of jobs and local tax revenue for your, community and others across Florida.
In Bradford County, for instance, an expected 215 total jobs would be generated. Statewide, the project would have a positive impact on more than 7,500 jobs. Bradford County would also receive more than $36 million in total property taxes over a 40-year term.
We look forward to continuing our community dialogue about this /exciting project. Should you have any questions about the Florida EnergySecure Line, please give us a call at 1-800-226-3545 or visit our Web site at ^ww.FF^.com/energy secure.

At long last, It's finally over
Dear Editor:
We are the parents of four children, now grown, who are graduates of Bradford High School, ranging in the ages of 28 to 18. Our youngest being a I 2009 graduate.
The purpose of this letter is to express our relief that we are now done with the Bradford County Schools. Hooray! Well, not completely, we do have grandchildren who are attending the same schools but now their parents (our children) have to deal with the same types of concerns and issues that we did. We wish them luck!
Our children were good students with good/average grades. They were not trouble makers at school or bullies or purposely disruptive in school. They were involved with football, wrestling, chorus, etc. They had jobs at age 16, because they wanted to. Just the average kind of students that most of us have.
We never expected that our kids would be treated with the disrespect and lack of compassion that flows through our schools and that refers to the teaching staff, as well as , administrators. There are a few who do stand.out and go that extra mile, if you will, and treat the students as people. But only a very few, and we do thank you for that.
It would be nice to have a proud feeling when speaking about our public schools, instead of frustration, anger, disappointment and even . embarrassment. It has been a constant struggle from day one, just to make sure our kids were treated fairly and with respect, and provided with a good-education,- which was not"" always successful.
If we knew then what we know now, we would have
never moved to Bradford County. For the past 23 years. I have attended numerous meetings (too many to count parent/teacher conferences-what a joke, phone meetings, etc.) in attempts to rectify an issue. I can honestly say that I have never left a meeting with a feeling of satisfaction, only frustration! From elementary to the high school, it has been the same scenario. Always a fight to make sure those things were as they should be. The teachers that I have had to deal with, with a few exceptions, do not care whether or not each child is meeting their full potential, unless their parents are one of the "special" ones, if you will.
I always thought a teacher's job was to teach. If they all did their job, not just a few, think of the outcome! Don't tell a student they will never go to college and end up with a dead end job. What encouragement! Or tell a student that they have "no rights," they are only .a student, the adults have all of the rights in school. Our children have been forgotten, embarrassed, humiliated and not encouraged by the Bradford County school staff.
Don't get me wrong. Our children have grown up and became very successful in their careers. It's a good thing that all of that negativity didn't sink in. They have had encouragement from home and the desire to succeed, in spite of you all.
I will share just a few examples. Our oldest, while a senior, had an interest in a career and attempted to inquire and gather information, and was told by the guidance counselor, "Don't bother, you are not smart enough." Again, our second son asked for information regarding a program at LCCC, but was told, "We don't have any." Oh, and I did let the Lake City program director know all about that when I called him to get the information for my son. Thanks for your help!
Since when is it required that a student has to stay after school to have specific math problems explained? That is the answer my daughter received after asking for help with her math assignment. Do we not teach? ,
Thank God � that our youngest has graduated! It has been a real struggle. He actually wanted to quit school ag^^^^^^^s so
battle. Oh, he was even escorted from the BMS Snowball formal by a police officer, all because he was absent from school that day. They couldn't say if any other kids were absent, but they knew for sure that he was. So, he was the only one made to leave.
How many girls miss school the day of a formal dance, to get hair, nails, etc. done? Oh, he did get an apology from the principal, but that was a little too late. I truly believe this was all in retaliation for my numerous complaints about the non-compliance of his IEP. Everything all looks good on paper, but not real effective for the student, if not followed by the teachers.
Being main-streamed, he learned the hard way that he had to help himself, because no one else there would. He has overcome the many obstacles that were actually put in front of him by the school. Again, thanks for that. He is on his way to becoming a successful adult, just like his siblings. _
It is a shame that our children, students of Bradford County schools, are treated the way that they are. That is, unless you are in that elite group that everyone caters to. I am sure that there are many other parents with frustrations with our schools. Please share! And don't give up, be an advocate for your child. I could go on and on, even write a book.
We do thank God for getting us through all of these years with the schools. And a big
thank you to the Bradford County schools for the many, many experiences and stories that we can tell and continue to pass along to anyone that we can. And we will. You have quite a reputation! '
Mike and Dehhie Reddish
Name mispelled throughout school career
Dear Editor:
My son, Brent H. Tibbit(s, is a 2009 graduate of BHS. He has' been in the Bradford County school system since the third grade. Throughout the years in Bradford County, he had achieved several awards for sports, academics, and so on. Every acknowledgment of my child has had his name spelled incorrectly.
For example: he received a trophy for football in 2007 that is not on display because his name is spelled wrong. He lettered in football and earned his letterman.'s jacket with his name embroidered on the pocket with his name spelled wrong. He was recognized this year in the local paper for straight A's with his named spelled wrong. He earned a two-year certificate in diesel mechanics with his name spelled wrong. The yearbook staff did not spell his name incorrectly; they however put his name under some other child's picture. His name was also spelled incorrectly on the senior t-shirt and school tankard.
Getting a child to his graduation day is an amazing accomplishment these days. My child was never recognized by his educators to even spell his name correctly. Bradford really dropped the ball with my son. When I went to Principal Lisa Graham's office to ensure that his diploma would be spelled correctly, she explained, "Brent wasn't a problem student so I don't recognize him."
These children are our future leaders and this is the foundation that Bradford County's school system is laying for our students. I hope that you take a look at the educators who you are entrusting your child's future to.

Please fix pavement
Dear Editor:
I want to state that I like Madison Street Pharmacy to start with so there are fio misunderstanding about what I'm about to say.
The drive through is not safe to take your car through. At the bottom of the ramp, your: car drags on the asphalt if you don't go out at an angle. I damaged my car as a result of this, you can see drag marks and cuts in the asphalt.
Madison Street Pharmacy" does not want to claim it and the city of Starke road department will not claim this problem. So, who owns it? I am not trying to get my car repaired or sue anyone. I just would like the problem to be . repaired.
I'm sure someone could afford hose ramps to go over the valley for drainage and solve this problem, cheap.
Please, someone take the time to solve this problem so I can go to the drive thru again. Thank you for taking the time to get this resolved if someone would claim it.

BHS players Coe, Winkler receive scholarships
Telegraph Staff Writer
Zac Coe and Trey Winkler were not that different from most any other kid playing high school baseball. They dreamed of playing ball at the next level. They have had those dreams since they were young children.
, Both Bradford High School baseball players had to overcome injuries at differing points in their careers, and that dream of playing beyond high school was not all that certain.
However, the two can now pinch themselves, because they are not dreaming any longer. They recently received scholarships, with Coe set to go off to Pikeville (Ky.) College and Winkler heading south to Ave Maria University, which just added baseball to its athletic program.
Coe described the opportunity as overwhelming, saying he could not wait to see what's in store for him.
"I'm very excited that God has given me the talent to play baseball," he said.
Winkler, too, was thankful for being given a talent to play a sport that will now help pay his tuition as he seeks to earn a degree in medicine.
"I'm just! real excited and grateful for everything," Winkler said. "I've been blessed with the ability to play baseball. Hopefully, it will take me through college and onto bigger and better things."
Each player admitted to doubts about having such opportunities, but those doubts started to fade toward the end. of last season.
"It finally started setting in that I would actually get to play in college," said Winkler, who began receiving more interest and offers from schools as the season progressed. "It's like a dream come true because I've been thinking about it ever since I was little."
For Coe, it was simply a matter of his game improving, at the right time. A shoulder injury proved to be a bit of a setback as he struggled to start
the year.
Former Bradford head coach Lamar Waters said Coe began finding his stride during the last three weeks of the season. He raised his. batting average approximately 100 points, hit four home runs during a span of five at-bats and finished third on the team with 17 RBI.
"Toward the end of the season, everything came together like it needed to," Coe said. "It gave me a kind of new hope."
Coe attended tryouts at Pikeville College. The first time he did so, he admitted he was a little nervous and uptight. He returned for a second set of tryouts, however, and wound up hitting a couple of home runs, just missing out on a couple of more home runs and making the throws he needed to defensively.
Waters said Coe, who played just three years at Bradford, has the most upside
of any player that has played for Bradford in recent years and expects him to play significantly better next season if he earns the opportunity.
"We knew that this year he wasn't going to be 1Q0 percent," Waters said, alluding to the fact Coe was coming off of shoulder surgery. "By next season, he should be well on his way to being 100 percent."
While Coe Was impressing Pikeville coaches at tryouts, things just kind of fell into
Trey Winkler accepted a scholarship to play baseball at Ave Maria University. His father, Eddie, is pictured to his right, while his mother, Monday, and former Bradford head coach Lamar Waters are pictured to his left.

Banned from Building in Putnam County!
On May 21st the Putnam County Contractors and Building Trades Examiners Board permanently revoked for all time the privilege of David Montgomery Anderson (d/b/a/ ANDERSON CONSTRUCTION & DESIGN of 6556 Woodland Drive, Keystone Heights, Florida) to ever again pull a building permit in Putnam County as a contractor, subcontractor, or under any d/b/a aliases.
The board took this action based on sworn testimony of Anderson's Financial Misconduct/Injury/Fraud, specifically for:
1. His failure to pay a court-ordered judgment on the counts of Fraud, Inducement to Fraud, Breach of Contract, Unjust Enrichment, and Florida Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices.
2. The SWORN TESTIMONY OF FOUR OTHER WITNESSES (from Putnam, Bradford, Clay, and Alachua counties) who testified under oath that on four other jobs Anderson had used his contractor license "as a license to steal... he needs to be stopped and I mean NOW... he must not be allowed to find another victim."
The Examiners Board gave their condolences to those who were "by all evidence defrauded terribly" by Anderson and then voted unanimously to escalate their discipline from "indefinite suspension" of his permitting privileges to "permanent revocation". Board Chairman David Qwyer said that Anderson "does not need to contract in Putnam County or any other county in the State of Florida according to what I've heard, which I believe to be true testimony."

place for Winkler. Waters was researching schools online when he came across the Savannah School of Art and Design, where he discovered that assistant coach Shawn Summe went to the same school as Bradford assistant coach Marcus Miller. Waters asked Miller if he knew Summer. He did. That began a line of communication with Summe, who had just interviewed for the head_ position of the new Ave Maria program.
Waters said he, Winkler, Winkler's father, Eddie, and Summe met at the Starke McDonald's. Summe then watched Winkler play.
Summe did get hired as Ave Maria's head coach, which led to him extending an offer to Winkler.
"That's how the whole thing went," Waters said.
Winkler likes Summe and the school, which has a pre-medicine program. "� "It seemed like a perfect match," he said.
Winkler is an experienced catcher. Waters said Winkler's times on throws from home plate to second base are comparable to Division I catchers.
However, Winkler said he expects to play all over the field at Ave Maria, which is something he looks forward to.
"I like doing that better than just playing one position," he said.
No matter where Winkler iplays on the field, one of the things he takes the greatest pride in is hitting, especially the long ball. Waters said Winkler's ability at the plate made him the one player opposing teams focused on.
"When he gets hold of a ball, it goes a long way," Waters said. "He had a couple of home runs this year that probably made it between 450 and 500 feet."
Winkler now has the chance to take the ball out of the park as a college player, something he admitted will probably make him nervous at first. However, he expects it won't take long for those nerves to go away once he steps on the field for the first time and gets caught up in the game.

exciting, Winkler said, because it will be the first-ever Ave Maria baseball game. Coe, too, gets to experience something" new. Pikeville has a new head coach in Robert Taylor, who was a three-time all-conference selection when he played at Pikeville.
Taylor said he .is looking forward to Coe being an integral part of the program.
"As we begin a new era in Pikeville College baseball and begin to rebuild this once proud tradition, it becomes extremely important to build it with players who exemplify
character as well as ability," Taylor said. "We. have found that in Zac Coe. He is a strong player who meets our needs on both the athletic level and spiritual level. We are thankful to God for sending us Zac and look forward to coaching and watching his performance on the baseball diamond."
Coe said he is sure it will be an amazing experience.
"Words won't be able to describe it," he said. "It will be that feeling that you know you've made it and you finally realize that all your hard work paid off."
