Notes

Abstract:
The first issue of this ongoing weekly appeared on July 26, 1879 under the title Florida Telegraph. It was published by William Wyatt Moore, a native Floridian and a staunch Democrat. Moore had previously worked for a paper in Tallahassee and had also published newspapers in Jacksonville, Lake City, Cedar Key, and Pensacola. After appearing for a short time as the Weekly Florida Telegraph and reverting back to the Florida Telegraph, the paper’s name was changed to the Starke Telegraph. In 1887, Moore sold a half-interest in the newspaper to I.C. Webb, who became sole owner within a few months and changed its name to the Bradford County Telegraph. In 1893, Eugene S. Matthews, who had previously worked for newspapers in Gainesville and Ocala, purchased the Bradford County Telegraph with Ben J. Farmer, who sold his interest to Matthews five years later. Matthews published the Bradford County Telegraph for the next forty years. 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. The Bradford County Telegraph continues to the present.

Crime rate up


slightly i

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

A report released last week by the
Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment showed the crime rate in Bradford
was up slightly in 2009.
Nonviolent theft-related crimes were
primarily responsible for the 2.4 percent
increase, although there were increases
in a couple of violent crime categories
as well.
The 2009 Annual Uniform Crime
Report includes offenses reported dur-
ing 2009 and data submitted by 409
of the 415 local, county and state law
enforcement agencies. These agencies
serve approximately 99.9 percent of the
state's population.
The report measures the violent
crimes of murder, rape, robbery and ag-
gravated assault and a few nonviolent
crimes, too-burglary, larceny and mo-
tor vehicle theft.
The crime rate is calculated by taking
into account the number of incidents re-
ported and population. The report pro-
vides information on the state's crime
rate and also breaks it down by county
and agency.
The number of UCR crime incidents
2009 in Bradford County was 787, up
from 768 in 2008. That represents an
increase of nearly two and half per-
cent. The increase is largely due to the
number of burglaries, which rose from


nBC


Index crimes down
in the city of Starke

222 to 240. By far the largest number
of crimes reported for the UCR were
larcenies, which were up to 341 from
336.
Although burglary and larceny are
both theft-related, larceny involves tres-
passing and taking property from the
owner and burglary generally involves
breaking and entering for the purpose
of stealing.
The report also tracked motor vehicle
theft, which was down .from 58 to 56
incidents reported.
On the violent side of theft is rob-
bery, which nearly doubled from 7 to
12 crimes reported in 2009. Other vio-
lent crimes in the report include aggra-
vated assault, down from. 137 to 127
incidents, and murder, down from one
to zero. The number of rape cases in-
creased from seven to 11, however.
While the crime rate rose in the Brad-
ford County, it was down 6.4 percent
statewide, 6.6 percent in Clay County
and 13.3 percent in Union County.
The Uniform Crime Report also
measures clearance rate, which is the

measurement of how many times
authorities were able to bring
charges against someone for the
crime reported.
Bradford County had a clear-
ance rate of just over 50 percent,
which was up from 47.8 percent
in 2008. Union County had a
66.7 percent clearance rate, al-
though it was only 39.8 percent
in Clay County and 25.2 percent
statewide.
The majority of index'crimes
in the county are reported to the
Bradford County Sheriff's Of-
fice. In 2009, 543 were reported,
which helped push the crime
rate for unincorporated Bradford
County up 3.2 percent. The sher-
iff's office's clearance rate was
also up, however, from just 34.3
percent to .43.6 percent.
The largest number of crimes
reported in the unincorporated
area were burglaries (207), fol-
lowed by larceny (176), ag-
gravated assault (97), vehicle
theft (45), rape (10) and robbery
(eight). With the exception of ag-
gravated assault, the number of
these incidents increased in each
category, primarily burglary and
larceny.
The Starke Police Depart-
ment's clearance rate was down
from 74.8 percent to 68.4 per-
cent, but the number of index
crimes reported was also down
from 230 to 209. This brought
,the-crime ratein ithe cii\.down
nearly' 6 percentii. "
AlIhough the number of larce-
nies was down, at 150 reported,
they still represent a majority of
the crime in the city. That was
followed by 28 aggravated as-
saults (up from 27), 15 burglar-
ies (down from 19), 11 vehicle
thefts (down from 13), four rob-
beries (up from 3) and one rape
(up from zero).
At 30 index crimes reported in
2009 compared to only eight in
2008, the city of Lawtey's crime
rate jumped nearly 281 percent,
and that contributed to the coun-
ty's elevated rate as well. There
were 15 larcenies reported (up


from zero), 14 burglaries (up
from two) arid one aggravated
assault (down from five). There
were also no robberies reported
last year, whereas one was re-
ported in 2008.
Lawtey Police Department's
clearance rate for these crimes
was 33.3 percent
Hampton Police Department
cleared each of the four burglar-
ies it reported in 2009. Those
were the only index crimes re-
ported, bringing the city's crime
rate-down by more than 55 per-
cent. While the number of bur-
glaries did double, there were no
larcenies or vehicle thefts report-
ed as there were in 2008.
According to the governor's
office, crime statewide is at a
39-year low, falling 6.4 percent
in 2009. The number of violent
crimes committed in Florida
dropped 10 percent last year; the
number of nonviolent crimes de-
creased 6.2 percent.
"The significant decline in
Florida's crime rate represents
the lowest rate in 39 years and
is an encouraging indicator that
our crime prevention efforts
are working," said Gov. Char-
lie Crist. "I applaud the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
and law enforcement officers
statewide for their outstanding
work, making Florida safer for
residents and visitors."
Murders in Florida dropped by
12.9 percent in 2009, while forc-
ible sex offenses dropped by 5.5
percent. Declines were also seen
in the other five index crime cat-
egories: robbery (14.8 percent),'
aggravated assault (8.4 percent),
burglary (3.5 percent), larceny
(5.3 percent), and motor vehicle
theft (20.9 percent).
Crist used the opportunity to
highlight his record on crime,
which includes signing the 2007
Anti-Murder Act, requiring vio-
lent felony offenders who violate
probation to remain in jail until a
court finds that they do not pose a
danger to the community, as well
as legislation to strengthen sen-
tencing laws for sexual offenses
giving law enforcement greater
tools to combat sexual predators.

ment does a tremendous job
protecting our citizens and safe-
guarding our communities," said
FDLE Commissioner Gerald
Bailey. "We've taken a proac-
tive and progressive approach to
public safety and that's helped us
attain the lowest crime rate in al-
most four decades."
"With crime .in Florida at the
lowest rate in 39 years, we are
seeing our state truly become
a safer place for our children,
our families and our neighbor-
hoods," added Attorney General
Bill McCollum. "From the new
cybercrime laws to our anti-gang
. efforts, Florida law enforcement
and prosecutors have new tools
to help protect our state, and I
am proud of the crucial role the
attorney general's office has
played in these efforts."
The work is far from over as
statistics specific to domestic
violence show the number of re-
ported cases tip by three percent.
Spouses and cohabitants make
up half of the state's domestic
violence victims.
According to the governor's
office, domestic violence offens-
es accounted for 40.7 percent
of comparably reported violent
crimes, and approximately one-
fifth of all murders were related
to domestic violence.

area he's particularly proud of.

people in our community know
there safe," said Smith. It is o.ie
of the safest communities in the
state, and that's something to be
proud of, he added, also praising
the way agencies are working to-
gether:to assist one another.

City approves contract with firefighters


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The Starke City Commission
voted to ratify a new contract
with the union that represents its
firefi 2htei' last week.
Discussion of confusing lan-
guage in the contract nearly
kept it from being executed as
planned, however.
The misunderstanding was
whether a 10 percent step raise
\would apply to what the eligible
firefighters are currently making
or to what their salary will be
once the new minimum pay is set
by the contract.
The contract sets the minimum
at $8.50, so those making less
than that would receive an au-
tomatic bump once the contract
is ratified. Some who would re-
ceive this bump are also eligible
for a 10 percent raise under the
step plan, which creates steps for
those who have completed addi-
tional training and take on addi-
tional duties.
The city's intention was for the
10 percent promotional raise to
apply to what those firefighters
are currently making, which is
below the new $8.50 minimum.
Paying a 10 percent raise on the


lower salary would obviously
save the city money.
Language in the contract May-
or Tommy Chastain and others
found confusing will be removed
from the contract before com-
missioners actually sign the doc-
ument. The city will alternatively
rely on an attachment that shows
what firefighters were making
currently and what they will be
making now that the contract is
approved.
The commission's approval
marks the end of a lengthy ne-
gotiating process during which
union negotiators feel they were
put off for years before the city
got serious about discussing a
new ,contract. Firefighters and
their supporters even approached
the commission to appeal for di-
rect communication with com-
missioners over the contract, but
they were rejected.
Instead, negotiations continued
for several more months through
the city attorney's office, with
attorney Terry Brown meeting
separately with commissioners
and firefighters until consensus
over what firefighters wanted,
and what commissioners were
willing to give was reached.
Raises achieved through nego-


tiations will be retroactive to Oct.
1 for everyone eligible for an in-
crease, but the time it has taken
to get all of the issues ironed out
means the parties are already half
a year into the contract's three-
year term.
The three-year term was one
of the city's final stipulatio'is
before negotiating was complete.
Following a final meeting with
the city attorney, union -repre-
sentatives said they felt they
had caved, but they were able
to achieve some important prog-
ress.
One of the things they fought
for was the step plan, and though
there are only a few steps, it pro-
vides some room for advance-
ment and creates salary separa-
tion between positions.
The union also managed to get
the city to raise the minimum pay

safety pay in recognition of the
fact that they work 24-hour

most if not all of the additional

Health Fair at the hospital Saturday


Each spring for the .past six
.years, Shands Starke has hosted
,a free community health fair.
Named after one of the, most
-familiar faces at Shands Starke,
ithe Lillian Stump Community
Health Fair provides attendees
the opportunity to have their cho-
-lest'erol checked, blood pressure
-tested, bone density measured,
-body mass indexed and general
-health assessed.
. Participants may also at-
tend presentations regarding the
S .prevalence and risk of obesity
and learn valuable information
to help achieve their optimum
-health.
- This year, Bradford County
Partnering to Move will join the
,health fair to promote physical
activity and encourage commu-

MANHUNT
Continued from page 1A

Also joining in the hunt were
:officers from the Starke Police
Department and the Lawtey Po-
lice Department.
-' The pursuit had officers from
all the agencies establishing a
'perimeter around where they
thought the man had gone. The
'K-9 teams began tracking the
man through the woods.
* According to BCSO Capt.
"Brad Smith, during the pursuit,
an LPD officer spotted the man
when he stepped out into the
mowed area under some power
lines that bisected the woods. The
man fled back into the woods and
the K-9 teams began to converge
on the area.
-- Smith said one K-9 team,
from UCI, was following the
fresh track when the man again
stepped out into the power line
area. He saw the UCI K-9 team
and turned to run. He ran directly


nity members to obtain and live
at a healthy weight. The Bradford
County Health Advisory Group
and the New River Community
Health Care Board are sponsor-
ing this community-based ini-
tiative and invite the public to
participate - as individuals or
in teams - in a two-mile walk
prior to the health fair.
The health fair is due in large
part to the generosity and devo-
tion of a single woman - Lil-
lian Stump. Stump made a con-
tribution of $100,000 to Shands
Starke several years ago, and the
Lillian StunTp Endowment Fund
supports programs such as the
health fair that benefit the com-
munity.
"We are grateful for the sup-
-port and generosity of such a re-

team that had been coming up
from behind him.
The man was arrested and
identified as Heaton. Albrit-
ton said .38-caliber ammuni-
tion was found in Heaton's left
front pants pocket when he was
searched. The gun was not found
in Heaton's possession, but he
allegedly told officers he had
thrown the gun and the camou-
flage shirt he had been wearing
into the woods when he fled. The
K-9 teams searched the area but
did not find the gun or the shirt.


markable person," said Jeannie
Baker, administrator at Shands
Starke. "Lillian's kindness, gen-
erosity and devotion to others
is legendary in our community,
and her history of helping others
extends far beyond the walls of
Shands."
In addition to being a long-time
member of the Shands Starke
Auxiliary, Stump also supports
the American Cancer Society,
the Bradford County Food Pan-
try, Santa Fe Community College
and the Starke Women's Club.
The Lillian Stump Health
Fair will take place on Saturday,
April 17, from 8 to 11 a.m. in
the atrium of Shands Starke. For
more information about the fair
or health walk, call Kim Murphy
at 904-368-2300.


Heaton allegedly admitted to
Albritton that he had pointed a
gun-at both the first vehicle and
at Albritton himself.
Total bond on the charges
filed against Heaton was set at
$21,000. He remained in jail as
of press time.
Capt. Smith said there is no
evidence that Heaton knew the
first victim was a code enforce-
ment officer when he pointed the
gun at his vehicle.

A COLUMN BY DOUG
THOBURN
Bradford High School Principal

Fasten your seat belts Brad-
ford County,
something
great is hap-
pening at
Bradford ',r -,
HighSchool..
Our students - -
and our' -
community
are. coming .
together and ..-
supporting : .' , ''"
our school in .
a great way.
Our teachers are dedicating
themselves to improving our
curriculum and making learn-
ing exciting and relevant. Our
athletic coaches are dedicating
themselves to making our athlet-
ic programs highly competitive
and returning a winning tradition
to BHS. Our academic team is
highly successfuPevery year.
Our band and chorus programs
are claiming recognition at the
state level. We are offering su-
perior quality technical training
that leads to highly recognized
industry certifications in several,
highly marketable, trades.
Bradford High School is re-
claiming its spot as a premier
high school in North Florida. We
want everyone to be a part.
There are many high school-
aged students in Bradford COun-
ty that are choosing to attend
school somewhere other than
Bradford High. We want 'and
need each student back at BHS.
In today's tight budgets every
student represents nearly $6,500
to our school district. The more
students we get to enroll in Brad-
ford High School, the more our
district can do to better serve our


L


students.
No school is perfect. No
school operates without its share
of challenges. We at BHS know
that we have areas that we can
improve on, but we are commit-
ted to that improvement. With
that said, BHS is the best oppor-
tunity in Bradford County for a
high school student to earn their
high school diploma and prepare
to go to college. BHS is the best
opportunity in the area for a stu-
dent to compete in interscholas-
tic athletics and receive the ex-
perience and exposure that may
lead to opportunities at the col-
lege level.
At BHS we have many 'stu-
dents who are taking advantage
of their opportunity to take col-
lege classes during the high
school day. Our students attend
classes at Santa Fe College in the
dual-enrollment program. Many
of our students will graduate
with many, if not all, credits ad-
vancing them toward an associ-
ate's degree in their chosen area.
All this comes at no cost - just
for being a student of Bradford


I


High School.
We know that parents want
the best for their children's
education; that's what we want
at Bradford High School. We
have challenges ahead of us, arid
working together - side by side
- we can overcome every chal-
lenge placed before us.
Our community should be
proud of what happens in every
classroom, every sporting venue,
every performance. If you reside
in Bradford County - or nearby
- you should expect Bradford
High School to rise up and do
the best for your child. The only
way we can be the best is to haVe
the best; we need all our high
school-aged residents to want to
be a Tornado.
I would welcome the opporti-
nity to meet with any parent .r
student interested in finding out
how Bradford High School can
meet their educational needs anid
fulfill.their future plans. Corne
visit us. We welcome the oppor-
tunity to bring you into the BHS
family.

Lost garbage continues to


impact landfill, revenue


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The loss of 1,000 tons a week
of commercial waste from Ala-
chua County is already taking a
bite out of the New River Solid
Waste Association budget, and
the loss of revenue could grow.
Emerald Waste Services has
"diverted commercial waste from
Alachua County to its own trans-
'fer facility and is transporting it
to a Georgia landfill.
If EWS convinces other com-
mercial haulers to use its transfer
station instead of Alachua Coun-
ty's station by offering a lower
disposal rate, that could result in
the loss of even more waste at the
landfill.
Alachua County has asked
NRSWA Executive Director
Darrell O'Neal if the landfill
could lower the tipping fee. the
county pays to make rates more
competitive. At the same time,
.Alachua County would work on
lowering the costs of operating
its transfer facility. Both actions
would result in a savings for the
,other commercial waste haulers
operating in the county.
Alachua County would have to
close its waste transfer facility if
- it could not longer afford to oper-
ate it, O'Neal said.
It would also result in- a tre-
mendous reduction in revenue at
the New River Regional Landfill
Sif all of that garbage were sud-
Sdenly being driven to Georgia.
While they work on being
'more .competitive, Alachua
County may work on establish-


FPL offers 10
- tips to save
.the planet
In April, FPL reviews appli-
ances' and common habits in
-homes and businesses that can
..have a large impact on utility
bills. Simple changes can also
-* help conserve natural resources.
.'" -Avoid hand-washing your
-dishes (as if you need an excuse).
"-'Automatic dishwashers consume
-one-third less water than hand
washing so you'll reduce both
your water usage and water-heat-
ing costs.
-Turn the ceiling fan off when
you leave the room. Diligence at
- -preventing fans from running un-
necessarily can save you up to $7
-..a month in energy costs.
-Adjust your washing ma-
:.chine to the appropriate water
level for each load, and use cold
water- to wash and rinse your
clothes when possible. You'll re-
duce your water usage, and you'll
also save the.energy you would
:,,be using to heat the water.
-Replacing that old porch
,.:light with an energy-efficient
/:compact-fluorescent bulb can
save you up to $50 over two and
.:*'a half years.
: -For a standard one-horse-
power pool pump, reducing the
:::tun time by two hours a day can
save you about $9 a month in
.:"electricity. For larger pumps, the
savings could be more.
-The U.S. Department of
SEnergy recommends the follow-
ing rule of thumb for computer
usage: If you aren't going to use
your PC for more than 20 min-
:utes, turn off your monitor; if
:you're not going to use your PC
for more than two hours, turn off
both the CPU and monitor.
-Don't forget to clean or
-:change your air-conditioning fil-
.. ter once a month. Your unit won't
"have to work as hard, and you'll
:-keep your indoor air cleaner.
-When using air-condition-
:,.ing, the average home can save
.'$4.50 a month just by raising the
, .temperature a single degree.
:: -Replacing your showerhead
withth water-efficient model can
.::cut your hot water usage in half
and save up to $50 a year on your
electric bill. Don't forget to re-
;:pair dripping faucets and leaky
: toilets. According to FEMA, one
:drop per. second wastes 2,700
::gallons of water per year!
-Keep warm with a blanket
:.. for your pool. Two-thirds of a
: pool's heat escapes from the wa-
:.ter's surface. Use a pool blanket
:._to cut the amount of energy used
: to heat the water in half.
- For more information on
FPL's Earth Day Is Every Day
campaign, the full list of tips,
liniks to videos and other informa-


ing exclusive franchises with
garbage haulers that would give
the county flow control over all
waste and require them to use
its transfer station. Doing so
will take time, however, as well
as the cooperation of the city of
Gainesville where a good deal of
the Alachua's garbage is gener-
ated.
The combined loss of com-
mercial waste and a lower tip-
ping fee for Alachua would cost
the landfill nearly $1 million
over the remainder of the cur-
rent fiscal year, most of which
O'Neal said the board could ab-
sorb by putting off equipment
and land purchases. Next year,
the board would lose more than
$2 million.
The landfill might be able to
operate with the reduction of
revenue, but Alachua would not
be contributing toward the cost
of long-term maintenance of the
landfill or future expansion while
paying lower rates, which was an
unattractive idea to O'Neal and
the board.
O'Neal didn't think thle board
could agree to reducing its rates
without the promise that at some
point in the future Alachua
County would have control over
its waste stream to ensure its gar-
bage would come to New River
and that revenue would return to
normal.
"They need to have exclusive
franchising in place before I feel
we can offer anything," he said.
The board agreed that they
were at an impasse without some
future commitment from Alach-

College name
change approved
On Nov. 10, 2009, the Lake
City Community College Dis-
trict Board of Trustees voted to
change the name of the college
to Florida Gateway College. The
vote followed several months of

a name reflective of the 'five-
county district (Columbia, Bak-

step in this process was to seek
approval from the State Board of

The college received word
last week from LCCC President

The Alachua County Com-
mission met earlier this week
and decided to hire a Tallahassee
attorney to investigate all of its
options, one of which apparently
includes allowing EWS t6 take
over the county transfer station:
An attorney representing the
company told the Alachua com-
mission that doing so would save
its taxpayers millions of dollars.

In other business:
-Although the landfill finally
got its historic carbon credits cer-
tified, it turns out that the credit
market is in a slump. The board
did not bother opening the single
bid it received after recently ad-
vertising their availability. Act-
ing on O'Neal's and the engi-
neers' advice, the board will hold
onto the credits until there are
signs of turnaround.
Prior to certification of the
credits, there had been multiple
contacts interested in acquiring
the credit, he said.
-The phase I gas collection
system required by DEP has
been completed, according to the
engineers. Instead of bidding the
construction project out, landfill
staff were responsible for com-
pleting the system, which saved
the board a great deal of money.
Savings are estimated in the
range of 50 percent.
-Engineers also reported the
landfill was in the final stages
before receiving its construc-
tion permit for the expansion to
a sixth disposal cell. Once DEP
approves the permit


take effect'July 1, 2010, but the
college will begin the transition-
ing process immediately.


Students help make change in Haiti


Starke Elementary held a week-long penny drive to raise money for the Red Cross Haiti
relief fund. All grades participated and the winners were determined by the weight
of pennies donated. The school's smallest students were the biggest collectors. The
pre-K classes of Leslie Jackson and Denise Dell won the pizza party prize for largest
donation. Their penny donation weighed more than 61 pounds! The school raised a
total of $572. Pictured with Principal Lynn Melvin are preschoolers (not pictured in

Starke may install speed humps


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Starke City Commission
is considering solutions to speed-
ing and other traffic violations
on residential streets that may
include installing some form of
speed bumps.
Instruments such as speed
burfps used to reduce speed are
known as traffic calming devic-
es. Speed humps aren't as high as
speed bumps and are less jarring
to drive over at the appropriate
speed. Rumble strips, most often
placed before an upcoming traf-
fic stop, are another possibility.
Congestion is causing traffic
traveling west on S.R. 100 to
make a right on South Street. In
doing so they are speeding and
disregarding stop signs posted at
Church and Cherry streets. Traf-
fic is also coming from S.R. 16
via those streets to avoid traffic
lights on the highway.
Given this problem and the
fact that speeding on residen-
tial streets has been a problem
in other areas, Police Chief Jeff
Johnson recently asked commis-
sioners if they had ever cometo
a consensus on the issue of- using
speed bumps to control traffic,
saying he preferred if the city
went that route it would go with
a portable version that could be
easily taken up and relocated.
Mayor Tommy Chastain said
the board certainly wouldn't be
interested unless a majority of.
residents on a particular road
supported having speed bumps
installed.



Lions club
needs you.
The Starke Lions Club is re-
cruiting new members to serve
the community. The club meets
on the second and fourth Thurs-
day of each month at noon. If you
are a service-minded person who
would like to get involved, please
contact Keith Sineath, member-
ship chair, at 904-303-4834, or


Resident Marty Johnson said
he had personally counted hun-
dreds of cars nowv using South
Street. The situation is par-
ticularly bad on game days in
Gainesville, when traffic backs
up and authorities are busy pa-
trolling and directing traffic on
U.S. 301.
It's become incredibly danger-
ous for children, Johnson said.
He recently even had to pull his
child off of his bike to avoid be-
ing hit when a car swerved onto
the sidewalk.
According to Police Capt.
Barry Warren, South Street was
one of several locations officers
,patrolled during a recent enforce-
ment wave during which numer-
ous tickets were written to driv-
ers who failed to observe stop
signs.
However, it's not possible to
have an officer stationed there
at all times, Chief Johnson said,
and the worst times for traffic are
when officers are needed near
the schools or to respond to in-
cident calls.
Marty Johnson returned April 6
after polling neighbors and find-
ing overwhelming support for
calming devices on South Street
and other streets as well, includ-
ing Laura and Cherry. Resident
opinion wasn't the only issue
of concern for the city commis-
sion, however. The commission
was concerned about litigation
that could result-if anything they
chose to install caused damage to
vehicles.
Warren looked into that and
said only a. few lawsuits had

been filed and most were thrown
out. Warren also looked at how
Alachua County has dealt with
speeding on residential streets
by installing speed humps and
roundabouts.
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
asked about motorcycles and the.
danger to those drivers if they hit
a hump unexpectedly, and War-
ren said signs could also be post-
ed where humps are installed.
Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson said public works
could potentially manufacture
and install its own rumble strips
at a savings for the city. They
would be painted so they could
be seen and would be easier on
emergency vehicles and motor-
cyclists while still alerting driv-
ers they need to slow down.
The commission has yet to de-
cide on a direction. It will contin-
ue to research the issue and take
it up at a future meeting.

In other business:

-The commission heard first
reading of an ordinance 'rezoning
834 W. Madison (a vacant com-
mercial building) from residen-
tial-single family, medium den-
sity, to highway commercial.

-A spring cleanup was set
for May 3 - June 4, and the fall
cleanup was scheduled for Sept.
20 - Oct. 22. City workers will
spend a week in each district
working with residents to clean
up the city by removing trash and
performing' maintenance during
these dates.



Diapers needed
Healthy Start of North Central
Florida is collecting disposable
diapers for needy families in this
region from May 9 - June 20.
Drop diaper packs off at the lo-
cal health department, or call

Memorial to fallen officers set for April 29


Law enforcement officers
from both Bradford and Union
counties will come together to
remember their fellow fallen
officers in the 2010 Bradford-
Union Law Enforcement Memo-
rial set Thursday, April 29, at the
Bradford County Fairgrounds in
Starke.
The event will be held at the
main fair building and will be-
gin at 6:30 p.m. The public is
encouraged to attend and help
members of all the law enforce-
ment agencies memorialize those
officers who lost their lives while
performing their duties.
Capt. Barry Warren of the
Starke Police Department, one of
the many agencies from the two
counties that will participate,
said the event "is an opportunity
to memorialize the greatest of
professionals - the profession-
als who were willing to, and in
fact did, give their lives in the
line of duty."

Officers and dignitaries from

The guest speaker will be
Department of Corrections Sec-

an officer answering his last
call when RMC officer Adam
Sanderson was killed on March
6, 2009. Sanderson died while
participating in a mock escape
exercise when his DOC van was
struck by a truck. The truck was
being driven by a man who had
stabbed his ex-girlfriend mo-
ments earlier.

ficers face the known threats en-
countered in today's society and

can lose his life in a situation that

Warren said the loss of Of-

Starke festival brings strawberries and more


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Like strawberries?
Call Street in downtown
Starke will be the place to be
this ,weekend, with offerings
,such as strawberry shortcake,
strawberry ice cream and choco-
late-dipped strawberries, just to
name a few tasty treats. If you
want to purchase a flat or two-
or more-of the berries to take
home with you, you can do that,
too.
The 12th annual Strawberry
Festival, though, is so much
more than the red, Bradford
County berries that the locals
will tell you are the "sweetest
this side of Heaven."
"The berries are the main at'-
-traction," Bradford County
strawberry grower Buddy Nor-
-man said, "but they sell a lot of


stuff down there."
Approximately 130 vendors
will be present at the festival,
which is scheduled for 9 a.m.-7
-p.m. on Saturday, April 17, and
9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday, April
18. There will also be several
activities for children and enter-
tainment for all ages.
It all adds up to a full week-
end, not just for those in Brad-
ford County and the surrounding.
area, but for those who travel
upstate from as far south as Fort
Lauderdale and those who come
from as far north as Brunswick,
Ga.
Pam Whittle, the director of
the North Florida Regional
Chamber of Commerce, which,
with Main Street Starke Inc.,
produces the event, said the fes-
tival has grown over the years.

17,000 attended last year's festi-
val, Whittle said.
Consistency, as well as the
many things the festival offers,
has played a role in that growth,
Whittle said. The. festival has
-been held on the third weekend
in April the last five or six years;,
which helps people make plans
to be there, she said.
That, in turn, has led to a
growth -in the number of ven-
dors.
"If they do well, they want to
come back," Whittle said.
Wood crafts, pottery, candles,
,sunglasses, bird feeders and
spices are just a few of the items
one can find strolling up and
down Call Street. Some interest-
ing items include Miche lBags-
purses that you can change the
appearance of by utilizing exte-
rior shells-and hand-crafted,
goat-milk soap.
Informational booths for serv-
ices such' as swimming pool
repairs and bath fittings will be
present as well, while Leamon
Alvarez will' be providing chil-
dren's identification services
inside the Joli Cheveux salon.
Joli Cheveux and many of the
downtown businesses will be
open during the festival, though
the Florida Twin Theater will
not be.
The upcoming Bradford
County Relay for Life will have
a presence as well as several
local teams will .be raising
money for the American Cancer
Society, The Exit Realty team
will be selling bottled water,
while the Walgreens team will
be selling strawberry ice cream.
The Downtown Div.as team will
be auctioning off desserts at
6:45 p.m. on April .17. The des-
serts will be provided by en-
trants of a dessert competition,
which will be held earlier that
day at Chrissy's Ole Time Meet-
ing House banquet room. Judges
will name first-, second- and
third-place winners in several
dessert categories. There will
also be a people's choice cate-
gory.
There should be plenty of
food to satisfy one's taste buds,

dors will be offering a variety of
foods, from barbecue, seafood,
gyros and gator tail to kettle
corn and fried cheesecake. One
vendor, Berrylicious, will offer
all types of strawberry goodies,
which is appropriate, since the
berries are, as Norman put it,
"the main attraction."
It has been a short season for
local strawberry growers after a
brutal winter that brought multi-
ple nights of freezing tempera-
tures. Norman said he generally
begins picking berries in Janu-
ary, but did not begin this year
until this month.
"Well, it hurt moneywise,"
Norman said. "In January and
February, you get $25 a 'flat.
Now, you get $14. Plus, it's
going to be a short season; but
they're pretty. They came back
pretty."

last year's festival. King said he

Maegan Soble and Haydel
County Fair, which was a


Bradford


Undergo.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor


It seems the economy had an
effect on this year's Bradford
County Fair, but it isn't the
economy so much as just com-
mon business sense that will
lead to the biggest change for
the fair next year-it will go
back to being a five-day event,
Jim Crawford, the fair man-
g ager, talked of this year's fair
and some of the changes in store
for next year. The overall in-
"come this year was down ap-
I proximately 12 percent from last
- year, with midway sales falling
=.approximately 15 percent,
SCrawford said. Attendance,
= though, was approximately the
= same, while but booth rentals
7 were up.
' "I will say the quality of the
--booths was the best ever I've
'=ever known," Crawford said.
-S "All booths were filled. That
was a real plus for the fair."
Crawford said the economy
was most likely the reason for
.soine of thF percentage de-
Mrre,",ul he sa.iC e.t~g e ea('>
- fair ma) ha %e wound up being a
=five-day event regardless of the
i economy. That's because after
"-comparing five-day fairs and
;longer fairs of recent years,
S Crawford said neither atten-
dance nor income increased with
a longer fair.
"In fact, the highest income
we have on record was a five-
day fair in, I think, '96," Craw-
ford said.
From a business standpoint,
Crawford said going back to a
five-day fair makes sense as a
longer fair "doesn't make any
more money, but it costs more to
run."
One change that was made to
this year's fair was made with
the economy in mind-the one-
ticket-per-ride requirement, with
advance tickets selling for $1
each. Crawford said the thinking
was it would be more cost-
Z. friendly for families to buy tick-
ets than all-you-can-ride arm-
bands, which were originally to
- be offered only on the two Fri-
day nights.
The first night of the fair,
which allowed people to use
tickets or armbands, was a suc--
cess, but the income afterward
started dwindling, Crawford
said. He estimated 95 percent of
the calls his office received dur-
- ing the day concerned the avail-
ability of armbarids, so arm-
bands were eventually offered


n Smith ride the Wind Glider at this year's Bradford
10-day event. Next yeari the fair will be five days.


County Fair will


changes next year


every night.
Crawford said armbands will
be offered every night of next
year's fair, with advance, arm-
bands being available for a re-
duced cost. !
"That is the trend," Crawford
said. "That is what the public
wants. That is what we will do."
Since the fair will run for five
days next year, the livestock
barns will be filled every day
with cattle and pigs, which cre-
ates a problem for .the youth
goat show participants. Craw-
ford :said the plan is to erect a
tent iby the swine building to
house the goats so the show can
continue. That change will allow
those who own .goats to display
their animals at the fair; for a few
days before the show, something
they were unable to do before.
"We might even have a tent or
two for gentle calf or pigs-
more of a little, petting-zoo-type
area," Crawford said.
A change in the entertainment
format will be made as well as
one -band- instead- of two will
"perform n a..-iven nihi. Per-
"torm rin'. ce ' 'ill -T '"not' start
until ;8 p.m., which is When most
people seemed to arrive at. the
fair, Crawford said.
The inaugural "Starke's Got
Talent" show this year was a
success, so it will return, Craw-
ford ;said. This year's show fea-


.tured 18 participants and could
grow next year, Crawford said.
The show could be divided into
two sections: one focusedP on
youth and the other consisting of
older contestants. In that case,
the talent show would start ear-
lier than its 7 p.m. start this year,
allowing the younger contestants
to perform, receive their awards
and go home earlier, Crawford
said.
Though changes are coming
for the Bradford County Fair,
that is not to say this year's fair
was not a success. Crawford
said he heard many favorable
comments on the quality of the
booths and the exhibits in the
horticulture, home and arts and
crafts divisions, and on the ap-
pearance of the fairgrounds and
buildings.
Crawford said a lot of credit
for the appearance of the fair
goes to the support he received
from Doug Watson, the warden
at Lawtey Correctional Institu-
tion. An inmate crew from the
institution performed plumbing
and electrical, -work; cleaned
floors, painted, etc.
"I think the grounds and the
buildings are in the best shape
they've ever been in," Crawford
said. "I haveL to attribute that to
the excellent support I got from
the Lawtey inmate help. Mr.
Watson is to be commended."


Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you
love and believe in, and it will come naturally.

mosquito control
workshop of-
fered to public
A workshop on mosquito con-
trol will be held at the Bradford
County Extension Office on
. Wednesday, April 28, from 6
p.m. until 8 p.m.
Although mosquitoes are an-
noying, they-like other in-
sects-are amazing creatures.
For their size, they possess the
Strength of comic book charac-
ters. The way they transform
.themselves (metamorphosis) is
as entertaining as a good science
fiction story. Who .hasn't mar-
veled at how a butterfly emerges
from a cocoon? Did you know
mosquitoes go through an
equally interesting metamorpho-
sis as well?
Come to the workshop and
learn about this amazing and
dangerous insect. Program top-
ics and speakers include: Mos-

What do the Buzz Busters do
exactly? The volunteers use
modern trapping techniques to
monitor the adult and juvenile
mosquito populations within
their assigned zones from May
to October. The trapped mosqui-
toes are ..used in a variety of
ways. First, if a body of water
has a large enough population of
* mosquito larvae, then they are
treated using eco-friendly insec-
ticides. Second, if enough adults
are collected, the county is noti-
fied about the high population
and will go out and spray insec-
ticides to kill the flying adults.
The Buzz Busters are using a
pest control strategy called Inte-
grated Pest Management. Using
such a strategy means you col-
lect the most information about
the pest and then treat in the
most environmentally efficient
manner.
Volunteers are needed. Vol-
unteers are being recruited for
the 2010 mosquito season. Try
something new. Come out and
join the Buzz Busters.
There.is no registration fee for
the workshop. Please call 904-
966-6299 to RSVP. This is es-
pecially important so we have
enough educational . materials
'printed.

-The following amendments to
the Florida Constitution will be
placed on the ballot for this
year's general election:

Repeal of public cam-
paign financing require-
ment
This proposal was placed on
the ballot by the Legislature to
repeal 'an amendment found in
Article VI, Section 7 of the Flor-
ida Constitution. The original
amendment was placed on the
ballot in the 1998 election, pro-
viding for state funding as an
option for candidates running
for. state office, and subse-
quently passed by Florida vot-
ers. The idea behind the pro-
posal was to provide a means by
which men and women with
limited finances could run for
state office. In the 2006 election,
Florida spent $11.1 millidri id-
ing candidates', with' Go'v: Char-
lie Crist receiving $3.3 million.
The Legislature had saving
money in mind when they put
this proposal on the ballot.
While tax money is in short
supply, politicians are raising
hundreds of thousands of dollars
for political races through pri-
vate means, and there seems to
be no shortage for candidate
funding.
Vote "yes" on Amendment 1.

Homestead ad valorem
tax credit for deployed
military personnel
This proposed amendment re-
quires the Legislature to provide
an additional homestead prop-
erty tax exemption by law for
members of the armed services
(including the National Guard)
who receive a homestaed ex-
emption 'and were deployed in
the previous year on active duty
outside the continental United
States, Alaska or Hawaii, in
support of military operations
designated by the Legislature.
Other considerations may apply .
It isn't possible to adequately


repay young men and women
for the sacrifice they are making
while serving far from home in,
strange environments. This
amendment, if passed, is a token
of our appreciation for their
service to the nation, but it re-
mains only a token. The loss to
the state will be minimal, and
there is no known opposition. It
was placed on the ballot by the
legislature.
Vote "yes" on Amendment 2.

Property tax limit for non
homestead property; ad-
ditional homestead ex-
emption lpr new home-
stead owners
This proposal seeks to limit
the assessment of non-
homestead property from the
current 10 percent to 5 percent
-per year. Property, which in-
'ciudes real estate, will continue-
to increase in value, but the 10
percent assessment is too much.
The 5-percent-per-year increase
is more realistic, and' taxes
should be based on real values.
The proposal also provides an
additional homestead exemption
for people who have not owned
a principal residence during the
preceding eight years. Other
conditions apply and owners of
non-homestead property should'
study the amendrhent prior to
voting.
Vote "yes" on Amendment 3.

Removes making-
changes in the compre-
hensive land-use plan


from a local board and
requires a vote by local
people to make changes
This proposal was placed on
the ballot by the Homestead
Democracy organization be-
cause it feels developers exert
too much influence over local
officials.
It's true. All along Florida's
coasts are condos and other
buildings hugging the shoreline,
where no building should ever
be, and local officials are allow-
ing wet lands to be exploited by
developers. Voters sometimes
make mistakes, but removing
temptation from the local scene
is the way to go.
Vote "Yes" on Amendment 4.

Proposals 5 and 6:
changing the modus op-
erandi for drawing district
lines for the House and
Senate
In times past, the Legislature,
whose responsibility is to re-
draw district lines each decade
following the census taking, has
drawn lines to favor the party in
power, thereby putting people
into districts in which they have
little or nothing in common with
others. Since districts are based
on population, senators and rep-
resentatives serving sparsely
inhabited sections of the state
will continue to have large land
areas with a diverse population.
Vote "yes" on proposals 5 and
6.

Telegraph, Times & Monitor * Thursday, April 15, 2010* Page 4B



No better time than now to


talk about consolidation


There has been a LOT of talk
- but little action taken - on
cutting governmental costs for
the city of Starke and for Brad-
ford County.
The joint meeting that was
held April 13 with commission-
ers and managers from both the
city and county was the perfect
time to start a conversation
about having one law enforce-
ment agency to serve the entire
area.
For the first time in a long
time, the Bradford County sher-
iff and the Starke chief of police
are both open to considering,
consolidation of law enforce-
ment services.


There are many other areas in
which the county and city can
solve problems by working to-
gether and sharing, resources.
This will make our government
more efficient and will save
money for the taxpayers. For
example, road repair crews for
both the city and the county
could share road graders and
other high-dollar equipment.
This would result in the gov-
ernment agencies having to pur-
chase new heavy equipment less
often.
A working relationship be-
tween the two governmental
bodies is essential. Working
together should be an ongoing


procedure and not a one-time
occurrence for the city and the
county.
The taxpayers and voters have
had a belly full of petty politics
from local officials. They are
looking for common-sense man-
agement that makes our gov-
ernment as efficient as possible.
The timing for the city and
county talks was right. One con-
versation must lead to others and
the final outcome may be a little
time in coming. Let the coopera-
tion begin now.

It's time to fertilize your trees


BY JAY TUCKER
Sr. Forester, Florida Division of
Forestry
In recent weeks I have had
several phone calls from home-
owners about fertilizing their
yard trees. Common questions
asked were: Do I need to fertil-
ize my trees? If so, how much,
when, and how should I apply
it? And, what type fertilizer
should I use?
As with all living plants, trees
need food. Contrary to belief,
fertilizer is not plant food. In-
stead, fertilizers help provide the
needed nutrients for plant
growth and good health which
help them to fight off pests, dis-
ease, and environmental
stresses. A proper fertilization
program can't solve all tree
problems and over fertilization
can do harm. Still, fertilizing
your tree(s) at the appropriate
time and with. the appropriate
formulation will help your
tree(s).
Plants including trees require
17 elements for normal growth.
However, the nutrients that are
most likely to limit tree growth
are nitrogen, phosphorus, and
potassium. In,young trees, nitro-
gen is normally the element in
highest demand. As trees get
older, nitrogen and other nutri-
ent requirements ,should go
down.
How much fertilizer you will
need to apply will depend on
soil, the tree's age and size, and
formulation of the fertilizer
being used.
The best way to determine
what and how much nutrients
you need to apply is to have a
soil test done. Your local IFAS
agriculture extension office can
help with your soil test.
Young, newly established
trees will require smaller
amounts but more frequent fer-
tilizing to provide' needed nutri-
ents, particularly nitrogen,, for

new root and crown -develop-
ment. Stick with the higher ratio
nitrogen fertilizers and lower
ratio of phosphorus, unless your
tree is determined to be deficient
in (P) or (K). Again, a soil test
will help in determining the
amounts of (P), (K) needed.
Fertilizer rates can often be
found on the fertilizer bag label.
You can also determined what
rate to apply by calculating the
area under the trees then
applying fertilizer at the rate of
0.1 to 0.2 of a pound of active
nitrogen per 100 square feet of
area will be adequate.
As a tree matures and growth
slows, its demand for nitrogen
will also drop. Large trees can
normally get enough nutrients
from residual nutrients left from
nearby lawn and shrub fertiliz-
ing and should do well without
additional fertilizing.
When selecting a fertilizer,
the most common type used are
commercial fertilizers which
contain all three major nutrients.
All commercial fertilizers are
labeled with three numbers, giv-
ing the percentage (by weight)
of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P),
and potassium (K). A complete
fertilizer with N-P-K rates of
approximately 3:1:2, 3:1:3, or
4:1:2 (e.g. 12-4-8, 15-5-15, or
16-4-8) is generally
recommended, however, fertil-
izers such as 10-10-10 or 8-8-8
can be used.
Keep in mind when calculat-
ing rates, that one pound of ac-
tual nitrogen, is not one pound,
of fertilizer mix. A 100-pound
bag of fertilizer labeled 12-4-8
has 12 pounds of nitrogen, four
pounds of phosphorus, eight
pounds of potassium, and 76
pounds of any additional ingre- .


added to make the fertilizer eas-
ier to spread and to reduce the
likelihood of burning plants with
too much fertilizer. For a 50-
pound bag cut each of the
amounts in half.
When is the best time to
fertilizer trees? For newly
planted trees you will want to
hold off fertilizing for two to
three months. Then use a ..slow-
release fertilizer, apply a light
band around the perimeter of the
planting hole, two or three times
a year. The best time to apply
fertilizer is around March or
early spring and again in late fall
to early winter. A third
application can be made around
June or early summer. Once.
established (three to five years.
after transplanting), you should
be able to decrease fertilizing to
once every one to two years.
As mentioned earlier, older
established trees shouldn't need
fertilizing on ai regular bases and
if you regularly fertilize your.
lawn and shrubs most
established trees should not need
additional fertilizing. Instead,.
have a soil test done every two
to three years then fertilize,
based on a soil test results.
Where you apply fertilizer is'
very important. When applying'
the fertilizer make sure it is-
spread evenly over the entire
root zone which can extend out
two to three times the width of
the tree's branches or drip, line:
Since the fertilizer will move
quickly through mulch there is
really no need to remove the
mulch or to place the fertilizer
below it. While you are at it, if
you have not mulched your trees
now would be a good time to so.
Mulching will help in proper
nutrieAt and water uptake.

BHS grad
Lodges to com-
pete in national
optometry event

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Looking at a photograph of a
diseased eye might make some
people cringe, but for Bradford
County native Jacob Hodges, it
was a welcome sight that put
hjm in position to have a chance
at winning a $1,00 prize at the
Varilux Optometry Student
Bowl, which will be held in con-
junction with the annual Op-
tometry's Meeting in Orlando
*June 16-20.
Hodges, a 2003 Bradford
High School graduate, will rep-
resent Southern College of Op-
tometry (Memphis, Tenn.) and
compete against students from
18 other schools of optometry in
a trivia-bowl-type contest. To
earn the right to compete,
Hodges, who is ini his third year
at SCO, won a similar trivia
contest held at his school, de-
feating three other finalists.
"I expected to do OK," said
Hodges, who had recently com-'
pleted his first round of licen-
sure boards. "I didn't necessarily
think I'd win it all."
In preparation for his first
round of board exams, Hodges
said he studied for four
months-five hours a day, six
days a week. He took the exam a
week and a half prior to his
school's student trivia bowl, so
he felt confident that he would
advance to the finals. He knew
the information students would
be asked about.
Still, if there was one category
he would've liked to have seen
more than any other, Hodges
admitted it was.ocular diseases.
It just so happened that was the.
category the final question of the
student bowl came from.
The student bowl consisted of
two preliminary rounds, with the
top two students in each round
advancing to the finals.
In the finals, an overtime-type
format, as Hodges described it,
was necessary to determine a
winner between Hodges and
another student. Reminiscent of
"Final Jeopardy," Hodgegr aDd-
his competitor had to wager
points on a final question. A
picture of a cornea was shown to
the competitors, who had to cor-
rectly identify the disease the
picture showed.
This year, Hodges walked
away the winner. He competed
in the school's student bowl last
year and advanced to the finals
before being eliminated on a
question asking him to identify a
specific type of cataract. Hodges
saj as a second-year student, he
hall not studied that particular
st ject matter yet.
The..student bowl is open to
fi t-, second- and third-year
st tents, though Hodges said
fi t-year students really have no

Bar patron

snatches
purse, bank

bags
A bar patron was arrested
April 10 after he allegedly
snatched a purse from a Starke
bartender. The purse contained
the bartender's tips and two
bank bags from the business.
Starke Police Department

The bartender said she knew
the man who took the purse.
She told officers that the
man came up behind her while
she was counting her tips. He
allegedly snatched the purse
right out of her hands. The
bank bags in the purse
contained an undisclosed
amount of money.
The bartender and other
witnesses were able to give
SPD officers the man's name
and description. He was
identified as Eric Jason
Gunter, 32, of Starke.
According to the police
report, Gunter was spotted on a
road west of the bar. He fled
into the woods when he saw
officers arriving.

called and they tracked the
man into the woods. The K-9
team located the bartender's
purse, which was recovered as
evidence. The search
continued for several hours,
but Gunter was not found.

known, SPD Sgt. Mark
Lowery was able to identify a
location he and his
acquaintances were known to
frequent. Lowery ftmnd Gunter
there and arrested him without
further incident.
' Gunter was charged with

;a tire balancer.

bid for government projects
which he himself would
supervise.
Court records state that

card and was paid $10,000
after obtaining the contract by
using the false company. No

"A Doctor's Confession to the Public..."

Dear friend,
Let ime tell you a story...
Twenty years ago I was& a young man in my mid 20's and life is good, but I woke up one morning ,
and couldn't get out of bed. I had back pain before but this was different. My low back was "locked up"
and pain is shooting down my spine if I try to move. Even though I'm in a lot of pain .1. make it to my
family doctor's office and am prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers and told to "Take it easy for a
while". That didn't help much. Finally, a friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The
chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it
actually felt gc .d. I got relief, and I was happy again. It worked so well that I went to Chiropractic
College myself.
It's strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their back and neck problems. Also
they come to me with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, sciatica, shoulder/arm pain, carpal tunnel
syndrome, whiplash from car accidents, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.
SeveraFtimes a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can't really take the credit. My
.confession is that I've never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure,
and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It's as simple as that!
You Benefit from an Amazing Offer - Look, I know you're smart. You want-to get to the cause of your problems, not just cover
them up with drugs. When you bring in this article, you will receive my entire new patient exam for $37. That's an exam, x-rays and a
report of the findings...'the whole ball of wax. This can normally cost up to $250 or more, but please call rigflt away because this offer
expirts at the end of the month, and I don't want you to miss out. By the way, "further care" is very affordable and you'll be happy to
know that I have affordable family plans. You see, I'm not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low start up fee, then to only
make it up with high fees after that. "Further Care" is very important to consider when making your choice of doctor. High costs can
add up very quickly.
My assistants are Cheryl and Vivian, and they are both really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our
best make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called STARKE CHIROPRACTIC and
it is at 225 S. Orange St. (We are across from Winn Dixie). Our phone number is 904-368-0011. Call Cheryl, Vivian or me today for
an appointment. We can help you. Thank you, Martin Slaughter, D.C. Chiropractic Physician. .
Our office policy is the patient and any other person responsible lor payment has a right In refuse to pa\. cancel payment or be reimbursed for payment for any other service, examination or treatment which is perfottied as ,,
result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for free or reduced lee services. c manination or treatment. X-rays are only taken if medically necessary. Due to federal regulations this may not apply to
Medicare/Medicaid or other federal insurance's.

TREES
Continued from Page 4B


or three (3) feet of a large tree.
Once spread, you will need to
adequately water the fertilizer
into the soil to prevent fertilizer
burn injury to roots. If you have
recently fertilized your lawn do
not apply additional fertilizer to
the turf area around the tree.
Also, do not use weed-and-feed
fertilizers under your trees un-
less the label says it is safe.

In relation to the practice of
placing fertilizer in holes'around
mature trees - studies have
shown that surface application
of fertilizer is sufficient since
most of the feeder roots are in
the top foot of soil. However, if.
the soil is compacted you can
bore holes four .to six inches
deep, two to three feet apart
using a punchbar or a drill with
a two-inch auger. Start two feet
'from the trunk And continue to
two feet beyond the branches.
Divide the fertilizer into as
many equal parts as there are
holes and place it in the holes.

HODGES

chance of winning simply be-
cause they haven't been exposed
to the material yet. Fourth-year
students do not compete since
the Varilux Optomertry Student
Bowl, for which they are vying
for a spot in, does not take place
until after they have graduated.
SCO students won the Varilux
Optometry Student Bowl in
2003, 2004 and 2005, but an
SCO student has not won since.
Though the $1,000 prize
would be nice, Hodges said it
would be "incredible" to win for
the sake of his school and the
city of Memphis. '
. "I love my school," he said. "I
love the city of Memphis,
Tenn."
Since winning his school's
student bowl to qualify for the
June event, Hodges said he has
received congratulations from
people on campus he doesn't
even know.,
. If Hodges feels any pressure,
he doesn't show it.
* "My whole attitude in life is
you can either be scared or you
can be ready," Hodges said.
Growing up in Bradford
County, Hodges wasn't ready to
become an optometrist. He said
he originally wanted to be an
English teacher.

tometry. *
"Oh, how things change," he
said.
Hodges went from wanting to
.be an English teacher to wanting
to be a lawyer, but taking a biol-
ogy class at Santa Fe College
put him on the career path he
would eventually take.
"I remember sitting there
thinking, 'This is the coolest
stuff I've ever studied,'" Hodges
said.
Next, he had to figure out
what career was for him. Biolo-
gists don't make a lot of money,
he said. He thought about going
to medical school to become a
doctor, but decided that wasn't
for him, either. Hodges visited
his family's optometrist, Dr. Len
Scholfman of Starke, and talked
to him about optometry. Hodges
said Schlofman told him it was'
an excellent field and to go for
it.
Hodges, who would go on to
graduate from the University of
Florida, applied to five schools
of optometry, receiving invita-
tions from all five for inter-
views. Once he visited SCO and
the city of Memphis, he in-
stantly fell in love. In fact,
Hodges admitted it will be a
little difficult for him emotion-
ally when he graduates next


Merritt Island, while his wife's
will be in Daytona. Both will
then take part in their second
externships in the Roanoake,
Va., area.
After graduating next year,
the two can being practicing
immediately, though they may
opt to complete one-year resi-
.dencies first., The downside to
residencies are that they are a lot
of hours at drastically less sala-
ries than they would make ,as
practicing optometrists, an im-
portant consideration for a cou-
ple with student loans to pay off.
However, Hodges said he may
be leaning toward a residency
because he knows he would
regret it in the future if never did
it.
"It's a big decision," he said.
For now, though, Hodges will
concentrate on completing his
third year of school and compet-
ing for the Southern College of
Optometry's first Variux Op-
tometry Student Bowl champi-
onship since 2005. He is ready
for the competition because his
school has made him ready.

"I feel confident in the mate-
rial my school has taught me
over the years," Hodges said.


year.
"It's like a family (here)," he
said. "I'm going to be heartbro-
ken when I have to say goodbye
to these people."
Qne person he won't be say-
ing goodbye to is his wife, Gin-
nie, a fellow third-year student
at SCO. Hodges met Ginnie
when she was working for rela-
tives in the optometry field in
Ocala. That was when the two
discovered they would both be
going to school at SCO.
They began dating in July
2007 and were engaged in Feb-
ruary 2008. They got married in
August 2008..
Hodges said people told him it
would be difficult to work on a
degree in optometry while being
married, but that hasn't been the
case. In fact, it's kind of nice, he
said, to turn to the person sitting
next to him on the couch at'
home if he has a problem under-
standing something in his stud-
ies as opposed to talking to a
professor after class.
Next semester, Hodges and
his wife wiill take part in two
four-month externships, with
Hodges focusing on the prac-
tices of refractive surgery and
ocular disease management. His
first externship will take place in

trict win over
Tornadoes in 8
innings
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Seth Parrish drove in what
would prove to be the winning
run as the Union County base-
ball team defeated Bradford 5-4
in eight innings on April 6 in
Starke for its second straight
District 4-3A south win.
The Tigers (4-9, 3-4 in Dis-
trict 4 prior to April 13) led 4-3,
but Bradford tied the game in
the bottom of the seventh. Jack-


son Eaves led off the. inning
with a walk and eventually
scored on a successful safety
squeeze with Jamie Bullington
at the plate.
Union's Austin Harden struck
out to lead off the Tigers' half of
the eighth, but a passed ball on
the third strike allowed him to
reach safely. Miles Willis
reached on an error before Josh
Griffis'hit into a double play.
Harden advanced to third on the
play and then scored.on a single
by Parrish.
Parrish, who finished the
game 2-for-3 with two RBI,
scored on a hit by Stacy Lloyd
that was misplayed in the out-
field.
Bradford's Dylan Manning


reached on a one-out double in
the bottom of the inning, but a
strikeout and a line-out ended
the game.
Pitcher Thomas Cason pitched
five innings of relief to earn the
win for the Tigers. He gave up
three hits and struck out eight.
Colby Andrews joined Parrish
as Union's only other multiple-
hit batter, going 2-for-5.
Harden put the Tigers on the
board first when he led off the
second inning with his first 'ca-
reer home run. Griffis then
reached on an error and stole
second before scoring on a sin-
gle into right field by Parrish.
The Tornadoes tied the game
in the bottom of the inning.
Bullington drew a walk with one


out and moved to second and
third on a wild pitch -and a
ground out. Ryan McKeown
drew a walk before Bullington
scored on an error. McKeown
then tied the game when he
scored on a single by Manning.
Griffis put the Tigers up 3-2
in the fourth. He led off the in-
ning with a walk, stole second
and went to third on a sacrifice
before scoring on a fielder's
choice.
Again, Bradford came back in
the bottom half of the inning to
tie the game. Chris - Mejias
walked, stole second and moved
to third on McKeown's sacri-
fice. Manning, who finished the
game 3-for-3, drove in his sec-
ond run of the game when his


single allowed Mejias to cross
home plate.
