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.

The Florida HighwayPatro is
reminding Florida drivers that rules
of school bus safety are a shared
For school administrators:
-Conduct a school assembly to
discuss proper behavior on the school
bus and how it relates to passenger
-Hold a school bus emergency
evacuation drill. Involve the local
police, emergency medical service, and
rescue agency.
For motorists:
-Obey Florida State Statute 316.172
entitled "Traffic to stop for school bus,"
which requires that all motorists on the
road at the time a bus displays a stop
signal, shall bring their vehicle to a full
stop and not pass the bus until the signal

has been withdrawn. However, this
statute also specifies that the driver of a
vehicle upon a divided highway with an
unpaved space of at least 5 feet, a raised
median, or a physical barrier is not
required to stop when traveling in the
opposite direction of a stopped school
bus with activated lights and sign.
(A violation for passing a stopped
school bus can range from 260.00 to
280+ dollars per violation, depending
on which county the violation occurs).

-Add patience and a few extra
moments to trip plans that include
traveling along bus routes. Due to the
size and numerous stops, school buses
are prone to slow traffic. Knowing this,
drivers need to ensure that they establish
a sufficient following distance behind a
bus. Increasing the following distance
will certainly enhance the ability of
the bus driver and motorist behind it
to safely slow or stop in the event of an

LB man arrested

for raping child

Times Staff Writer

On Sunday, Aug. 16, Christopher
Michael Glaspy, 33, of Lake Butler,
was arrested for raping a 10-year-old
In her statement to the Union County
Sheriff's Office, the victim stated she
had been spending the night with an
adult female friend when she fell asleep
in a recliner, but was awakened around
3 a.m. on a couch and in extreme pain
with the suspect Glaspy on top of her
sexually assaulting her.
The victim woke up her friend who
immediately reported the crime to the
sheriff's office. It is not clear Glaspy's
relationship to the male owner of the
residence where the incident took
place. He was picked up by a sheriff's
deputy within an hour of the rape and
the sheriff's office advised the victim's
mother to take her daughter to Shands
in Gainesville for a rape exam.

making a statement, telling the deputy
to lock him up and he would talk when
he was sober.
On the way to being placed in a
cell at the Union County Jail, Glaspy
threatened that he was going to "cut
loose." In the cell, Glaspy jumped on
a sleeping inmate and provoked a fight
which ended with Glaspy receiving
medical treatment for his injuries.

The Starke Police Department
received a call at 2:44 a.m. on Aug. 16,
stating that a train had struck a person
at the CSX Railroad crossing on S.R.
16 in Starke.
According to SPD's Capt. Barry
Warren, officers met with the train
conductor, who told authorities the
train had struck a person w'ho appeared
to be sitting on the track. When officers
responded to the location on North
Thompson Street, they observed a
person lying face down in the east
Stephen Lane Thornton, 39, of Starke
was pronounced dead at the scene.
Warren said investigation revealed
that Thornton was sitting on the eastern
most rail with his feet in between the
rails. The conductor and engineer both
stated that Thornton appeared to be
sitting there with his head down on his
knees. The emergency braking system
was engaged, but the train was unable
to stop before striking Thornton.

Stacey N. Bailey, 24, of Starke
has been sentenced to 15 years in the
Department of Corrections followed
by 10 years of probation for a car crash
in the summer of 2006 that killed the
passenger in her vehicle.
On Aug. 21,2006, Bailey fled from
police through three counties, with
speeds exceeding 100 mph.
During the trial, Bailey admitted to
snorting cocaine prior to the chase and
said that she had not eaten for two days
prior to the incident.
She said she fled authorities because
she didn't want to get caught.

"To be trespassing on the railroads is

"but the danger involved should be

He was taken into custody and charged

officers seized the remaining dogs.
Douglas has no prior criminal history
in Clay County.

During the chase, law enforcement
officers from Bradford, Union and
Baker counties, as well as Florida
Highway Patrol troopers, pursued the
fleeing Bailey and her passenger, Belvin
McNeal of Lawtey.
Bailey avoided stop sticks placed by
police in one Baker County location,

that had been ordered to stop and act as

Bailey pled guilty to charges of felony

with no valid driver's license- resulting
in death and vehicular homicide.

Starke commission approves zoning change for mobile home

Telegraph Edito.r

Starke city commissioners
approved a zoning change for
a mobile home on first reading
Aug. 18 after postponing a vote
at a hearing earlier in the month.
The property in question is the
Collier Ferrell property on S.R.
16 East past Old Lawtey Road,
but the city made the'applicationi
on the property owner's behalf:
The commission did amend
its future land use map Aug.
4, recategorizing the land
from industrial to low-density
residential use, but Commissioner
Carolyn Spooner initially
hesitated to support that as well.
Spooner said. she knew the
following ordinance on the
agenda would also rezone the
property for mobile home
subdivisions, and she had an
issue with that. The property is
surrounded by houses, she said.
Mayor WilburWaters,however,
verified that there was no one in
the audience who opposed the
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson confirmed the zoning
board had voted to support the
application. There is-an existing
mobile home on the lot, but it has
become unsafe, Thompson said.
The owner wishes to replace the
existing trailer with something
Commissioner Tommy
Chastain said if the city turns the
resident down, she would have to
Attorney Terry Brown
clarified the first application was
only to amend the future land
use, pointing out the lot between
the other existing houses was
currently classified for industrial
development. He said the board
could act to change that to low-
density residential development,
then decide whether the zoning
should allow houses only or
mobile homes.
"It would seem to me it should
not be an industrial site', Brown
Chastain moved to approve
the land use change, and
the ordinance was approved
unanimously on first reading.
There was still no one in the
audience to oppose the following
ordinance to rezone the property.
Commissioner Travis Woods
was not opposed either. He said
a newer mobile home would
improve the look of the property.

RJE alumni
reunion to

Valara Petteway informed the
city commission that alumni of
the historic RJE school will be
.celebrating the school's 100'h
anniversary Sept. 3-6 which will
be followed by a six-day cruise.
While it's been decades since
black and white schools .were
integrated in Bradford County,
the RJE alumni and alumni from
other black schools in the region
gather with former classmates
and keep the memory of their
schools alive with periodic
Part of the festivities for this
100"h anniversary will include a
parade on Saturday, Sept. 5, at 10
a.m. The route will extend from
the hospital on East Call Street to
the First Baptist Church parking
lot downtown.
The city commission agreed
to close the streets during
the time of the parade and
provide the necessary security.
Commissioners were also invited
to participate in reunion events.
"It's once in a lifetime- that
we get to celebrate 100 years of
anything in Bradford County,
so to us this is quite an honor,"
Petteway said.

High electric
bills, revisited
Petteway also used the
opportunity before the
commission to discuss the
increase in her most recent utility
bill, which jumped from $469 to
$633. Her Jufuol.ad}ustment cost
alone was more than $-230,'she
sa id .' ' ' * . .
Some commissioners indicated
the increase in their own bills
caused a double take as well.-
The operations manager
said several day of particularly
high temperatures in the city
caused electricity usage to
climb, although Petteway said

Aug. 20, at 6:30 p.m. For more
information, please call (904)

her air conditioning wasn't
working when 100-plus-degree
temperatures were reached, and
her bill still went up that much.
She encouraged the
commission to continue to act to
try to lower electric bills.
"We definitely understand
because we get them (bills), too,"
Waters said.
According to Thompson, the
fuel hedging agreement that
has power provider Florida
Municipal Power Agency paying
above market prices for natural
gas will be up later this year. The
agency locked in a price before
natural gas prices began to fall,
and customers have seen their
fuel adjustment charge.
There was brief discussion
about using more than $100,000
from the sale of the excess
natural gas the city hedged for
the gas utility to offset fuel costs
for the electric utility. Chastain
asked the city clerk to check into
that possibility.

Can cities
dissolve ARP?
Further comment on the cost
of electricity came Aug. 18 when
Bret Hines said his family's
utility bill jumped to more than
$700, and that did not include the
utilities he's paying forat his place
of business. His wifeCheryl,said
she doesn't understand why half
the residents in the city haven't
'packed up and moved away.
Thompson explained
customers should see their fuel
adjustment drop some on their
next bills. The city passed out a
chart showing Starke was one of
the lesser expensive municipal
utilities for the month of July, and
Thompson said the average fuel
adjustment had dropped around
$20 per 1,000 kilowatt-hours of
Thompson also passed out a
letter that Green Cove Springs
had sent to FMPA requesting two
items be added to the agenda of
the next FMPA executive board
meeting. One of them is a petition
for a motion to issue a request

Meade being the latest.
Green Cove is also requesting
FMPA limit natural gas hedging
projects to no more than 30
percent of the ARP needs in a
three-month period.
'According to Thompson,.
FMPA was once hedged at 125
percent and that percentage is
coming down as the hedging
contracts expire. A portion
of the gas purchased through
November, however, is expected
to be purchased at prices above
current market value, and that
additional cost is passed on to

behalf of the city of Starke and

measures that will save the city
money. That includes opposing

DOT acquiring property to widen intersection

Ti'lcgraph Editor

At hearings held Aug. 17,Judge
Ph\llis Rosier entered orders
of taking for small portions of
propertN at the corners of at
U.S. 301 and S.R. 100 where the
Walgreens and CVS pharmacies
The Florida Department of
Transportation needs portions
of.those corners to carry out the
project to improve the turning
radius at the 301-100 intersection.
This \\ill include removing the
concrete posts that currently
support the traffic signals at each
corner and replacing them with
signals suspended by two mast
arm signalization poles.
According to DOT, the project
should make turning at the
intersection easier, particularly
for tractor-trailers, and improve
motorist and pedestrian safety.
DOT's Joe Jordan, District 2
right of way manager, explained
the legal process the state uses to
acquire land if it cannot come to
an agreement with the property
o\\ ner to purchase the land. A
lawsuit is prepared and filed with
the court. After a hearing on the
order of taking, DOT deposits
the amount of money it believes
the property is worth with the
court, he said.

After that, Jordan said DOT's
attorney works with the attorney
for the property owner to attempt
to find a resolution. In effect, he
said, D)OT's attorney becomes
a negotiator and tries to reach
a settlement on the property
If a settlement cannot be
reached, then the parties will
.prepare for trial, which will
be preceded by mediation.
If mediation is, unsuccessful,
then a jury trial will decide on
the taking of the property and
compensation for the property
This process of taking property
by eminent domain is common
when land is needed for public
purposes, like highways or utility
rights of way. Jordan said it's a
fairly simple but time consuming
process. Still, the department
tries to resolve eminent domain
issues within two years of filing
a lawsuit and hopefully sooner
than that, he said.
DOT is seeking a permanent

Brainy BHS students to will earn letters as well

Telegraph Editor

The Bradford County School
Board gave its blessing to a
program the new high school
principal will introduce this year
awarding academic letters to
high achievers.
Principal Doug Thoburn said
just like athletes are awarded
letters to recognize their
achievement, school scholars
will be awarded letters to show
off their accomplishments.
Thoburn said it's his goal
to see academic and athletic
achievement equally rewarded.
"W-e' f:co'gn'iae that' athletes,
after meeting certain criteria,
receive the athletic letter that
they can wear on a letter jacket.
I've had great success at a couple
other high schools I've been in by
instituting the academic letter,"
Thoburn said.
Academic letters would be
earned by accumulating points.
Each nine weeks as student can
earn three points by making
straight A's, two points by making
all A's and B's, and another point
by having perfect attendance.
Points would also be awarded
of FCAT achievement. Scoring at
Level 3 in reading, math, science
and/or writing will be worth one
point. Score at Level 4 on any of

those tests, and the student will
earn two points. Three points are
possible by scoring at Level 5 on
any of those tests.
When students accumulate
15 points, they will be awarded
their academic letter. For each
additional 15 points earned,
students will be awarded a gold
bar to wear on their letters.
The academic letter will,
of course, be the letter B for
Bradford, but instead of a sports
emblem, it will feature the lamp
of knowledge..
"My experience with this
program is that it places
academic achievement at the
same visible level as w\e do
athletic achievement and it

starts generating that talk and
that feeling that it can be cool to
achieve academically," Thoburn
School Board Member Vivian
Chappell called it an excellent

Notice of Receipt

of Natural Gas

Transmission Pipeline

Certification Application

1. Application number NG-09-02 for certification to authorize location of corridors for, and construction, operation and maintenance of, a natural gas transmission pipeline, laterals, and compressor stations was filed by Florida
Power & Light Company (FPL) with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on July 30, 2009. The Project is known as the Florida EnergySecure Line Project (Project). The locations of the proposed facilities
are shown on the accompanying map, and run generally from Bradford County, Florida to Martin County, Florida with laterals running into Brevard County, Florida and Palm Beach County, Florida. The case is pending before
the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH), Case No,09-4151, prior to action by the Florida Governor and Cabinet, acting as the Siting Board, pursuant to the Florida Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline Siting Act
(NGPSA), Chapter 403, Sections 403.9401 - .9425, Florida Statutes (F.S.). FPL is seeking certification of the Project under the NGPSA.
2. FPL's Project consists of a proposed 30-inch diameter natural gas transmission pipeline connecting a receipt point near Florida Gas Transmission, LLC's existing Compressor Station 16 located west of the City of Starke
in Bradford County to a termination point at FPL's existing Martin Plant-located near Indiantown in Martin County, Florida. In addition to this mainline pipeline, two lateral pipelines will deliver natural gas to FPL's existing
Cape Canaveral Next Generation Clean Energy Center (CCEC) and existing Riviera Beach Next Generation Clean Energy Center (RBEC) via new 24-inch diameter and 20-inch diameter pipelines, respectively. Two proposed
compressor stations also are included as part of the Project; the "Bradford Compressor Station" will be located in Bradford County and the "45th Street Terminal Compressor Station" will be located at FPL's existing 45th Street
Terminal in Palm Beach County,
3. FPL's Project application seeks certification of corridors in which the proposed natural gas mainline pipeline and lateral pipelines will be located. FPL's "Mainline Preferred Corridor" originates in Bradford County near County
Road 235 and traverses east for approximately 50 miles before turning in a southerly direction and terminating at FPL's Martin Plant in Martin County. Approximately 265 miles of this 278-mile corridor are collocated with
existing utility rights-of-way. FPL's "Cape Canaveral Lateral Preferred Corridor" extends northeast for appioximalely 16 miles from the mainline pipeline in Orange County to the CCEC in Brevard County. and FPL's "Riviera
Beach Lateral Prelerred Corridor" extends southeast for approximately 6 miles from an existing FPL oil/gas pipeline near Florida's Turnpike in Palm Beach County to the RBEC in the City of Riviera Beach. FPL's preferred
corridors will pass through the following local government jurisdictions: Bradford County, Clay County. Putnam County. Flagler County. Volusia County, Seminole County, Orange County, Osceola County. Brevard County, Indian
River County, Okeechobee County, St. Lucie County, Martin County, Palm Beach County. City of Hampton, City of Palatka, City of Palm Coast, City of Bunnell. City of Cocoa; and City of Riviera Beach.
4. FPL is proposing five secondary corridors along the Mainline Preferred Corridor and one secondary coridor for the Cape Canaveral Lateral Preferred Corridor. These secondary corridors, as well as FPL's preferred corridors,
are fully described in the Project application which is available for review at the locations listed below.
5. The application for certification is available for public inspection online at www dep.state If us/siting (click on "Applicailons in Progress") and at the following locations during normal business hours:

Fighting the flu: What you should know

The Department of Health
and Centers for Disease
Control has recommended
that, as always, people with
respiratory illnesses should
stay home from work or
school to avoid spreading
infections to others in the
Avoid close contact with
people who are coughing
or otherwise appear ill.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth. Wash your

their patients.
Of course, vaccinations will
not take place in school without
parental consent. Vaccination
is voluntary, and parents or
guardians will have to sign
consent forms before their
children are vaccinated. In
the case of the swine flu, two
permission slips will have to be
signed since the vaccination will
be administered in two doses:
one when the vaccine becomes
available and the follow-up 21-
28 days later.
With school beginning,
Holland said public health
officials are being vigilant about
the opportunity that presents for
the spread of the flu. There have
been outbreaks over the summer
in camps and other group
situations, and classrooms offer
the same environment.

"We're going to be monitoring
that closely, and we really want
to get the vaccine in the schools
as soon as possible to be able to
reduce as much of that outbreak
as we can," she said.
The Centers for Disease
Control has nevertheless backed
down on the recommendation
that schools close if a cluster of
flu cases occur. Holland said the
severity of the illness had not
been as dramatic as anticipated.
Those considered most at
risk are pregnant women, then
caregivers of children six months
and younger, health care workers
(emergency ' responders) and
finally school-age children.
More information will be
distributed to parents through
the schools and the media as it
becomes available.

North Florida counties plan for H1N1 swine flu outbreak

Monitor Editor

Last Monday, Keystone
Heights Emergency Planner John
Ward told the Keystone-Lake
Region Business Association
about Clay County's preparations
for the possibility of a fall swine
flu epidemic. He didn't stay long
enough to present his PowerPoint
presentation-he had to run off to
another meeting on the subject.
As of 10 a.m., July 29. Florida
had seen 3,321 reported cases
of the HINI virus since the
beginning of the year. Most
troubling, however, was the
report that 584 of those cases had
been reported in the latest eight-
day period.
The implication,
epidemiologists were saying, \as
that the possibility of a swine flu
epidemic was growing. So far,

there have been 34 deaths from
the flu in Florida.
Health officials are particularly
concerned about the fact that the
HINI showed up in summer
camps around the state-none
of them here in the Lake Region.
Now it's time for school to begin
and there's no possibility of a
vaccine until mid-October.
As of July 29, Alachua County
had reported 64 cases: Bradford
had seen just two, Clay had
seen 14 (and one death reported
Aug. 14). and Putnam and Union
counties had only reported one
each. Duval County has also seen
64 cases and three deaths.
Ward's printed materials,
compiled by the Center for
Disease Control, the Department
of Health and state and county
health offices showed that, so
far, the highest incidences of the
flu have been in south Florida,

State health officials expect
to receive 4.8 million doses of
the vaccine at start-up, with
additional doses to be received
each week thereafter.
Unlike seasonal flu. the HINI
virus seems to affect children and

young adults, and for unknown
reasons doesn't appear to affect
the elderly as often unless they
have underlying chronic health
and respiratory problems.
Once the vaccine arrives,
the Clay County Advisory
Committee is suggesting that
the first vaccinations will go to

with the flu virus.
The advisory committee
is especially concerned that
the public understands the
difference between seasonal flu
and the HINI swine flu virus.
The symptoms of swine flu are
similar to those of seasonal flu.
The Center for Disease
Control estimates that about
36.000 Americans die from
complications of seasonal flu

each year. So far, 34 deaths
from HINI swine flu have been
reported in Florida. Most people
recover from an HINI infection
without medical intervention.
At present, swine flu is still
considered to be a relati\ ely mild
strain: however. health officials
say they cannot predict what will
happen in the future.

Spotlight on business: Tommy Spires of Spires IGA

Long history as

Times Staff Writer
After receiving his master's
degree from the University of
Floida. Tommy Spires, 66,
taught at Forest High School
in Ocala where he was the
assistant football coach and
head track coach for eight
In 1972,Tommy and his wife
Nancy relocated to Lake Butler
where he began working for
his father, Fernie, as a store
manager at Spires IGA. He
eventually bought the store

Tommy Spires. Starling is Tommy Spires' grandson.

Lake Butler's Spires IGA of today

Spires said that back when he
began working for the store, the
product line was much different
than it is today.
"Half the store 'was general
merchandise and men's and
women's apparel and half was
grocery in a building that was
about 5,000 square feet," said
Eventually, selling large
quantities clothing and general
merchandise became a thing
of the past at Spires. "It got to
where I had to buy the clothing
items in such large quantities,
for. instance, I had to purchase-,
thre4 - bozean urple,-blousn"m,
fhe same exact style, and in a
little town like this, that wasn't
going to work." Spires held
a liquidation sale to rid the
store of the merchandise when
its new focus became grocery
In the middle of the afternoon
on Labor Day 1990, with a
store full of shoppers, a box
bin located outside behind the
store caught fire. "We would
tear down our cardboard boxes
and put them in the bin-and
people would come around and
take the boxes whenever they
needed them," Tommy said.
Never finding out for sure
how the fire originated, the
fire marshal's investigator
determined it was probably due
to a lit cigarette dropped in
the bin. The investigator told
Spires that 99 times out of
100, cardboard boxes would
never go up in flames from a
cigarette, but unfortunately, it
happened to Spires.
Tommy recalled, "It was
about 4 o'clock in the afternoon
and my son-in-law Ricky came
up to me and said there was a
fire in the box bin and grabbed
the extinguisher. I went back
there and saw it, grabbed a
water hose and thought, this
isn't a big deal and we can put
this out. I mean, it looked like -
something we could put out in
10 minutes."
As a precaution, Tommy
called the fire department and
announced for the customers to
clear the store.
Tommy's son, Mike, who is
store manager over 62 other
employees, has vivid memories
of that day. "I was bagging
groceries for Kate Epperson,"
Mike said. "She wanted to go
back in and get her milk and
although nothing looked wrong

checks they had written to the
store that were destroyed in
the fire and replaced them.
"The outpouring of community
support after the store burned
was overwhelming," Tommy,
After receiving the insurance
settlement,a new and improved
Spires IGA store was up and
running five months later. The
site was completely cleared
and a new, larger 15,000-
square-foot store was designed
to better serve the needs of
customers. Tommy_.. said , the
new store, which opened on

and, of course, fire sprinklers.
"I was fortunate to have
just enough insurance on the
building," Tommy said. "I
never really paid that much
attention to the coverage I had,
but you can bet I know what it
is now." The store continued
to be lucrative and in 1998,
another 5,000 square feet was
added on.
Tommy attributes the
staying power of Spires IGA
to his dedicated customers.
"A small, rural community is.
the best place in the world to
do business," he said. "You
know everybody, and .they are
generally concerned about you
and you're concerned about

best to meet the needs of:
his customers, saying that
sometimes he'll get a number
of requests for certain items
that aren't feasible through the
traditional route of stocking the
shelves. He actually goes to a

store so his customers have
the convenience of buying their
desired products locally. "Our
customer base is tremendous,"

Tigerettes or basketball players
to hold fundraiser car washes
or bake sales.
He is also supportive of other
local community groups such
as allowing Girl Scout cookie
sales or a place for Babe Ruth
baseball sign-ups each year.
Although Tommy professes
to be a Union County Tiger
fan through and through, he is
also a dedicated supporter of
athletics in Lake City where
he has a second Spires IGA
store. He said he did get a bit
of teasing from his Lake Butler
customers during .a football,

opened the I.Ake C(ilty store at
the end of 1991, starting out
with just 8,500 square fect
and eventually expanding
to about 14,000 square feet.
The store employs 28 Lake
City residents, including the
store manager. "We've come
to know a lot of people in
Lake City," Tommy added.
"and with it being a larger
community, we have a
customer base between 8,000
and 10,000 people."
Spires IGA isn't the only
grocer in town in Lake City,
either. It has held its own
against the likes of Save-A-

said. "As in Lake Butler.

Yet a third Spires IGA store

is very similar to the Lake
Butler store, and gives back
to the Baldwin community
by, among other things, hiring
all local staff and supporting
its athletic teams. Also like
the Lake Butler store, Spires
IGA is the only grocer in the
Baldwin area. Before the store
opened, Baldwin residents had
todrive to either Macclenny or
Chaffee Road in Jacksonville
for their grocery shopping.
The Baldwin store is unique
in that it was built through
a community development
block grant. After determining
there was a need for a local
grocery store, the city of
Baldwin council contacted
the IGA supply \\arehouse
to locate a grocer \\ ho would d
come to the area.
It was a slo\\ moving
process. Tlommy said, taking
about three ears to get the
store up and running. When
first approached by IGA,
Tommy said he was rather
hesitant about operating the
Baldwin store. "We had to
think about it carefully before
considering." he said. He

feet, a challenge within itself
to provide a full line grocery
store in such a small space.
In addition, Tommy said
that although there was a
grant, he still had to invest a
ton of money into the store.
"The grant only covered the
shell of the building. We had
to finish off the inside, put in
the equipment and stock the
shelves," he said.
Having so much money
invested in the Baldwin
store, Tommy said things
were pretty tense for a while
because the store was not
meeting projections.
Tommy explained, "When
you're an outsider opening a
new business in a small town,
it takes a while for it to earn
people's trust...for people
to believe we're going to be
there for them."
The store has come along
gradually and business is good
there, with 18 employees.
and sales reflecting heavy
on meats, dairy and frozen
In light of the economic
situation, Tommy said his
stores are managing to hold
up, mainly because residents
in the communities his
stores serve remain faithful
"I don't recall ever seeing
anything like what we are
experiencing now," he said.
Not just sales-wise, but also
in the realm of employee
turnover as well.
"We have always hired a
lot of students, and it used to
be-two or three years ago-
we could tell kids to keep
checking back with us, and
we'd have an opening every
couple of months or so."
Until just recently, and
particularly with ' part-
time employees, there
was a constant rotation of
employees, particularly at the
end of each school year.
"That's good for us in that

we are keeping the same
employees, but we also
enjoyed the fact that we could
employ and work with several
kids at different times around
their ball, band or college
schedules," Tommy said.
Everyone anticipates the
economy picking up again,
and when it does, Mike
offered a few pointers for job
seekers. When considering
employees, he stresses the
importance of being able to
fill out a job application.
"People should be able
to fill out an application
properly, spell correctly and
write legibly," he said. "Also,
their communication and
verbal skills are a big thing.
They need to speak clearly
using proper English."
Tommy added that people
should dress appropriately
when asking for a job.
"We've actually had people
come in here in cutoffs and
no shirt, approach us and
say, 'Hey man, you got any
work?' For this line of work,
we don't expect them to come
in a suit and tie, but they
shouldn't have the waistline
of their pants hanging down
at .their knees, either. Just
dress respectably."
In case you haven't checked
it out, Spires IGA has had a
cooked-to-order grill as part
of their bakery/deli service
that was added in the late
80s. The cook staff provides
weekly lunches for the Lake
Butler Rotary Club and Mike
will attest they offer excellent
customized hamburgers and
awesome breakfasts.
"The best doughnuts around
are in our bakery," he said.
People especially discovered
the good breakfasts offered
at Spires back during the
2004 hurricanes. "The day
the power came back on, we
served breakfast until three in
the afternoon," Mike said.

School sports complex will have to wait

Telegraph Editor
A new sports complex for the
school system doesn't appear
likely in the near future, and one
located near the prisons doesn't
appear acceptable at all.
The topic was on the agenda
for the Aug. 18 Bradford County,
School Board Meeting at the
request of Board Member David
Smith, who has supported trying
to acquire land near Florida State
Prison from the state at no cost to
the district.
Smith drew the distinction
between this being prison
property and being property close
to the prison. Though it is situated
near the prison, he said the
Department of Corrections does
not own the property; it is owned
by the state and managed by the
Department of Environmental
Protection, which Attorney John
Cooper said was the case of all
state-owned lands.
Portions are leased to DOC,
Smith said. It is being used as
pasture land as well as a sewer
spray field.
According to Smith and School
Board Member Randy Jones, the
issue of a new sports complex
was raised after a local group
.inquired about support from
the school board for building a
baseball facility. Smith said there
had also been a recommendation
for the board to relocate the
football stadium from the high

Fund is holding two fundraisers

monument. On Saturday, Sept.
12, the group is planning another

The group will leave Classic

school for security reasons.
Smith said a single sports
complex could serve the entire
district, including multiple high
schools in the future. He also
touted the 170 acres because its
proximity to the prison system
meant there would be a supply
of inmate labor to help construct
the facility and carry out ongoing
The board had instructed the
previous superintendent, Harry
Hatcher, to begin negotiating for
the land. Current Superintendent
Beth Moore, however, has no
interest in doing so. She said this
isn't the direction she wants to go
For one thing, she said, the
seven-mile distance from Starke
would exclude students from
sports participation.
"There are students who
don't have transportation, and
we certainly cannot provide
transportation to all students,"
Moore said.
She would like the board to
consider a more centrally located
place for the development of a

"I think we want to provide a
nice place for our students, yes,
but I don't think that's the place
and I would not recommend that
we pursue this," Moore said.
Jones recommended a survey,
adding he felt many would object
to a facility at the proposed
.location. Board Member Vivian
Chappell agreed with the survey
suggestion, saying community
input was needed. At the same
time, she pointed out that the
district doesn't have the funds to
construct a sports complex.
"1 hate to bring this up, but if
you relocate anything, where are
you getting the money from?"
Chappell asked.
While one of the attractive
points of the land that Smith
pointed out was the possibility of
obtaining it for little or no cost,
Cooper said the state does not
usually part with land without
placing a price tag on it.
Cooper also said that without
a recommendation from the
superintendent that the district
move a facility, he wasn't sure
there was much action the board
could take.
"That's the balance of power
between boards and elected
superintendents," he said.
Cooper did say it was a good
idea to work on a master plan for
district facilities and to include
sports facilities in that plan.

Tigers working to build upon success of '08 season

T''llegraph Staff Writer
Sliilih \\ins makes for a
pret\ good year, especially
vhen a team w\as coming off
two consecutive, losing
nion County High School
plai\ers, though, are not
satisfied. Seniors like
quarterback Chris Alexander
and linebacker Mason Dukes
know that last year was just a
small step in the right
direction. Now, the two want
to sa\ they helped lead the
Tigers back to the playoffs
during their final season in the
Purple and Gold.
The rest of the players on
the team all seem committed to
making that happen. Alexander
said the team goal is to earpa

playoff berth and make a run
for the Class 2B state title.
Players are putting forth the
effort now, he said, in hopes of
making that a reality.
"Everybody knows what
they have to do to get the team
closer to that goal," Alexander
When Alexander says
everybody, he means
everybody. You would expect
returning seniors to work hard
toward that end, but Dukes
said the Tigers have a bunch of
.underclassmen who are
working hard to help the team
achieve its goal.
Ultimately, though, the
burden falls on the shoulders
of the returning juniors and
seniors, as well as sophomores
who played prominent roles

last year, head coach Andrew
Zow' said. Dukes knows that.
"We've got to hustle on the
field and set an example for
the younger kids," Dukes said.
"If you watch (Alexander) at
practice, he's all the time
pepping us up."
Alexander said for the team
to be successful, the players
have to go full speed every
play. It's not enough for a
player to have one great play
and then lose focus for the next
couple ol plays .after that,
Alexander said. In essence, he
said, the Tigers must improve
every play and every day
throughout the season.
"You just can't stay the
same every day because
everybody else is working
hard, too," Alexander said,
referring to the other teams in

the state. "You've got to
continue to build and get better
at the things that you want to
Alexander has obviously
embraced his coach's
philosophy. Zow, too, talked
of continuous improvement,
saying, "We've just got to
continue to get build every day
on what we had the year
before, the week before and
the day before."
What the Tigers had last
year was their first winning
season since 2005, capped by a
postseason bowl victory over
Baldwin. However, the team
would rather have earned a
berth in the regional playoffs.

been competing in English
riding competitions for only
the past year and a half. Her

trainer, I)enna Johnson of Full
Partners Farmr in Newberry,
said she is Currently at a level
that lakes most people six to
seven years to attain.
"For her to be where she is
at this point is pretty amazing,"
.lohnson said.
Full Partners Farm had four
members of its riding team
qualify for the national
competition, three of whom
will actually make the 'trip to
New York and compete. Carly

her- while mnaneuvering it
through a course of jumps in
the hunter competition, while
her ability to handle the horse
was judged in medal events.
However, she and her horse
have been involved in so many
more shows.
"Oh, my gosh, a lot," Carly
said when asked how many
shows she's been in this year. -
"Every single.weekend."
Yet one could say Carly's
preparation goes back much
further than this year. She was
in preschool when a woman
visited her class with a pony in
tow. She was the child who
seemed interested in riding the
pony, which she did.
"All the other (children)
were crying," Trish said. "She
was the only one who would
get on it."
Carly grew up riding ponies
wherever she could, such as at
flea markets. She likes all
animals, noting she has a


whole bunch of puppies at
home, but there's something
about horses that have an
added appeal. She guessed it
was simply the fact she can
ride them.
The Kowalchuk home also
has three horses. Trish said
Carly, during the school year,
will make time every morning
to tend to the horses before
leaving home. When she's
home, it's nothing for her to
jump on one of the horses at
the spur of the moment and go
for a ride.
"The next thing you know,
you see the horse go riding
by,"Trish said.
Carly took riding lessons
from a couple of people, but
her last teacher before hooking
up with Johnson at Full
Partners Farm quit teaching,
which 'left her daughter
distraught, Trish said. Trish
attended an event at Shands
Hospital that' featured a silent

auction. One of the items up
for big was a package of free
lessons and a camp provided
by Full Partners Farm: Trish
submitted the final, winning
"That's how she got to go
out to Full Partners," Trish-
Trish said a month did not
even go by before Johnson
asked Carly to join the farm's
equestrian team.
"She's just extremely
talented, and she's just a really
hard worker," Johnson said.
Carly talked of the first
event she competed in as part
of the team. She competed in
the walk/trot event and rode a,
horse named Spirit.

To earn the right to compete in the national event,
Carly Kowalchuk had to earn enough points after
competing in four grade-A shows. She has been

Carly's accomplishments at this point are "amazing."

Now, though, St. Anne's
Episcopal Church is closing.
The Right Rev. Samuel
Johnson Howard, bishop of
Florida. issued a letter and
e-mail dated Aug. 10 that
stated. "On Sunday, Aug.
9.-1 met with the vestry and
congregation of St. Anne's
Episcopal Church in Keystone
Heights. I summarized for
them the conclusions reached
iri meetings, which I have
held over the past two years
with their leaders. Because
of dwindling attendance,
membership and financial
resources, it will be impossible
to continue ministry at St.
A:nne's on a viable and self-
supporting basis. Accordingly,

end of active ministry at St.
"'We are grieving," Zowarka
said. "It is like a death. It is a
great sorrow."
SBishop Howard added that
he had been working with
Father Jeff Mackey, vicar of
Trinitv Church in Melrose,
.which.will welcome St.Anne's
remaining members.
:The bishop said there were
no immediate plans for the
dispensation of the property
and the church buildings.

At a St. Anne's community
breakfast last Saturday, Father
Mackie said nothing 'would
be done to the buildings until
at least January. Water and
electricity will be shut down
after the last service. Trinity
Church in Melrose has been
appointed to take appropriate
care of sacred objects in
the sanctuary. Plans for the
memorial garden are still being
While members of the church
were reluctant to discuss the
causes that led to the closing,
most agree that St. Anne's had
not been helped by a split three
years ago,
A bit less than half its
congregation left because
of the Episcopal Church's
decision to ordain and allow
openly gay priests to serve in
dioceses worldwide.
Many of the St. Anne's
members who left the church
are now funding members
of the Immanuel Anglican
Church, also in Keystone
Other members at St. Anne's
said the gay issue wasn't the
entire problem. Attendance
had begun to decline even
before the gay issue arose,
they said. And the church was
still-in good shape for a while,
after the split.
At St. Anne's peak, Brokus
said, the church had about 80
members; now there are about
35. Zowarka said she left the
church some time ago, because
she saw the end coming.
"It was almost inevitable,"
she said.
She visited Episcopal
churches in other towns like

Starke and Gainesville but
eventually decided that she
liked Trinity Episcopal in
Melrose best.
The Episcopal Diocese of
Florida Web site included
information on several
resolutions shaped at a recent
California convention. One
resolution gave bishops more
local control in the ordination
of gay priests and bishops.
According to Brokus and
Riechmann, Bishop Howard
has made public statements
that he would not allow the
ordination of gay priests in
his diocese, or the blessing of
gay marriages. (Which are not
legal in Florida at any rate.)
Father Mackie said last
Saturday, "Gay priests are a
non-issue at Trinity."
The reason, Mackie said,
was because he felt there are
more important and pressing
social issues to confront-
homelessness, hunger and
the effects of the current
Mackie said Trinity has seen
a great response to its Easter
and Thanksgiving meals held
in Melrose's Heritage Park.
"We didn't plan them to get
more church members, but
we're happy to see that the
meals have made a difference
in attendance," he said.
By next January, Mackie
added, at least one service
each month- would have to
be held in the church's large
fellowship hall, rather than in
the tiny, quaint and historic
chapel-sized sanctuary.
Trinity member Jim Swarr
said, "Trinity is one of the
busiest churches I've ever been
involved with. The Melrose.

Swarr said.
So far, he added, the subject
of openly gay priests has never

the gay lifestyle, but it doesn't
seem to be as big an issue for
younger people," Swarr said.

We went back to the
'mobile home dealer thinking
we would have our check
returned to us. When the check
was handed over, the language
used was, "We will put this in_
our safe and when we close it
will go on the closing cost."
To make it short, they
deposited the money right
away and refused to give us
back our $2,250.
I spoke with .the manager
who was nice and smiled and
he "explained it to me this way,
"We ask for money because if
the loan does not go through it
is our decision to give the
money back to you." I asked
why did you not ask for a non-
refundable deposit like the land
realtor so it would be clear.
The reply was, "We have
expenses and we intend on
getting paid."
So take this lesson to learn,
our initial closing cost was
$5,700. We lost almost half of
that on a good faith agreement.
The intention of the mobile
home dealer was to get all the-
closing cost. Please beware
and take this advice, do not
give any money on a good
faith contract. It will not be
returned. You can look at this
as a glass half empty or a glass
half full. If this keeps one
person from making the
mistake my wife and I did, I
see it as a glass half full.

7 p.m. in Jasper. Whereas the
first week of practice was all
about determining how many
players the team had and
evaluating those players, Zo\\
said this week is all about
getting ready to play.
"This week is really a grind
week," Zow said on Aug. 17.
"We play against Hamilton
next Friday. We have to be in
game shape. We have to be
ready to get after people. This
week, we're trying to see
who's tough enough to get
through camp."
Once the games begin, the
Tigers can no longer think
back to how well last year
went. The focus is on the

present, but Zow said last year
will help this year's team. He
said players like Alexander,
Dukes, Adam Cason, Lonnic
Gosha and Bryan Holmes, to
name a few, started to
understand the system he put
into place two years ago after
he was hired to replace former
head coach Buddy Nobles.
"Guys started to believe in
the system and believe in what
we did last year," Zow said.
Dukes, for one, is confident
entering this season.
"Last year, we had an
awesome team," he said. "We
were young, too. Coming into
this year, we've got the
experience. I think we're going

Newberry were the two district
opponents who handed the
Tigers losses and prevented
them from qualifying for the
playoffs. Dukes said he is
looking forward to playing
Newberry again as the
Panthers defeated the Tigers
by just three points last year.
Newberry, though, is not a
district opponent this year.

in its current district. Dukes
said the Tigers will have to
play a top-notch game against
Florida High. A win against
that team, Alexander said,
would be huge.
"Every year they have top
players," -Alexander- said:
"When we play them, we're
going to be like, 'This is the
best,' so we've got to play our
best. To beat them would be a
big confidence builder."
That game, though, is not
what's important right now.
The focus is on Hamilton

an Aug. 28 preseason kickoff
classic, which will be played at
