Starke electric costs not low, but lower

Telegraph Editor

Though not a match for private utili-
ties, Starke's electric costs were down
in 2010 compared with the prior two
The average residential electric bill
for 1 megawatt (or 1,000 kilowatts)
in 2010-$127.76- was closer to
the $127.04 average in 2007 than the
$136.43 average in 2008 or the $141.10
average in 2009. The averages for
higher consumption residential users
(2.5 megawatts) were $357.76 in 2007,
$381.46 in 2008, $392.91 in 2009 and
back down to $359.54 in 2010. For
commercial users, the averages (at 1.5
megawatts) were $220.64 in 2007,
$234.85 in 2008, $239.19 in 2009 and
$221.75 in 2010.
There were factors that led to higher
bills in 2008 and 2009. Members for the
Florida Municipal Power Agency were
paying higher than market costs for the
natural gas used to generate much of
their electricity, for example, thanks to
some purchasing agreements that have
since run out. Members were told they
also had to help pay a penalty for the
unscheduled use of another utility's
lines. Because of Starke's long-term
all-requirements contract with the pow-
er provider, there was little city com-
missioners felt they could do but grin
and bear it.
Starke Operations Manager Ricky
Thompson says some Local changes,
however, have helped lower bills, in-
cluding a project that upgraded the
city's electric infrastructure. The chang-
es, which included raising the voltage
level, reduced line loss. The cost .f the

line loss was being distributed among
the city's customers.
The project was substantially com-
plete in the summer of 2008, although
it looks like problems like those men-
tioned above may have delayed savings
until older fuel contracts had expired.
Meter repairs have also played a role
in pinpointing where some of that un-
accounted for electricity was going,
Thompson said. A total of 150 meters
were tested. Customers with improved
meters may have seen their bills in-
crease somewhat, but overall, the av-
erage bill for a city titility. customer is

lower, Thompson said.
While bills were certainly lower in
2010, the statistics alone don't show
that they are substantially less than cus-
tomers were used to before the projects
took place. Compared to other munici-
pal utilities, Starke usually falls some-
where in the middle these days,depend-
ing on usage, instead of on the high end,
at least when comparing residential
bills. It still tends to be higher than most
othtr cities on the commercial side.

Alexander Marco
Palazzi, 19, of
Starke was arrested
Feb. 15 by Bradford
County 'Sheriff's
Office Deputy
David Schlofman
for soliciting a
person under 16
years of age to
commit a lewd act
and for use of an
electronic device
to solicit a child for Palazzi
sexual conduct.
The 15-year-old victim reported these
incidents to BCSO.
The victim stated she met Palazzi at-
a carnival in October in Lawtey and
they exchanged phone numbers. They
began to exchange text messages and
the messages indicate that Palazzi
was made aware in November that the
victim was only 15.
The two went on a date and the
victim stated Palazzi was pressuring
her, via text messages, to perform oral
intercourse. That did not occur at that
time, but Palazzi allegedly continued to
send sexually explicit text messages to
the minor.
When interviewed by Schlofman,
Palazzi allegedly admitted to sending
the messages, but stated that he did not
intend to actually pursue having sex
with the victim.
Palazzi was already on felony
probation for burglary when he was
arrested on Feb. 11 and charged with
obscene communication and lewd and
lascivious behavior in soliciting a child
-for sex. Bond was set at $100,000 and
he remained in jail as of press time.

.Seat still up

for grabs

Telegraph Editor
The two remaining candidates in the
race for the District 1 school board seat
may have their work cut out for them
convincing people to get to the polls.
Less than 18 percent of eligible vot-
ers took part in the primary earlier this
month. With just 14 votes separating
the top two candidates--Sheila Fayson
Cummings and Archie Kitties Jr.-ev-
ery vote will count on March 1.
Cummings and Kitties will need to
persuade those who previously voted
for Byron Ramseur to now support
them instead. Increasing turnout overall
will be the other challenge.
Statistics released by the supervisor
of elections office shed some light on
where each candidate may need to focus
their energy. In Precinct 2, most of the

hearing about utility costs, said
,lower bills have resulted in fewer
S"I don't hear the grumbles I
.used to hear, unless people have
just gotten tired of grumbling,"
,he said.

ICost stabilization
SLooking at the final three
inonths of 2010, it would appear
.that costs have stabilized. It's
Actually a good example of how
f he city's rate stabilization strat-
egy works. An electric bill's pri-
'inary components are the cost of
-power based on the electric rate
:and the fuel adjustment charge,
w;vhich is supposed, to represent
Lithe cost of fuel but which the city
,:eadily admits covers non-fuel
related costs that exceed what is
collected-through the current rate
:; The cost of power fluctuates
based on customer usage. In fact,
residential usage can increase
:dramatically after 1 megawatt
(1,000 kilowatts), when the rate
jumps from around 6 cents to 9
.cents per kilowatt, around the
same cost that businesses pay.
The fuel adjustment can also
vary based on the cost fuel,
mainly natural gas, used to gen-
erate electricity. But the city also
ieeds to recover other costs, so
the fuel adjustment is essentially
the difference between the city's
costs and the amount of rev-
enue generated by the basic rate
Structure. Costs not covered by
:the rate structure are spread out
:among customers as the fuel ad-
:! To try to stabilize customer
-bills and heJp them budget from
inonth to month for utilities, the
:;ity implemented a ,rate stabi-
lization scheme involving the
fluctuating component of the bill
ilt could control- the fuel adjust-
mrent In 2009, the city set a static
fuel adjustment rate-originally
:$65.50 per megawatt but eventu-
,lly lowered to $55.50 per mega-
:vatt. According to this strategy,
o:n months the calculated fuel
adjustmentt came in below the set
'rate, customers would still pay
the set rate with the additional
Ei"retenue going into a rate stabili-
zatibn fund; On months when the
Calculated fuel adjustment ex-
ceeded the set rate, money would
be pulled from the fund in order
to keep customers' bills from
| spiking.
; The city hasn't always stuck
Sy the strategy. Sometimes when
the calculated fuel adjustment
dame in lower than the set rate,
c customers were simply charged
.1 the lower amount, perhaps be-
cause the stabilization fund was
! sufficiently full. The city emp-
tied that fund at the end of the
2010 fiscal year, however, which
is why the average bill dipped
so low in August and September
When the new fiscal year be-
gan, it was necessary to replenish
Sthe fund, so for October, Novem-
ber and December 2010, custom-
ers paid the $55.50 per megawatt
fuel adjustment instead of the
lower calculated rates-$43.30
i for October, $28.56 for Novem-
ber and $44.88 for December.
As a result, customers paid
more than $258,000 into the
rate stabilization fund during the
first quarter of FY 2011. As in
2010, they should get that back
sometime in 2011, perhaps in the
fourth quarter, but before then if

costs begin to unexpectedly rise.
Looking at the city's use of
the rate stabilization fund, it
doesn't appear as if its goal of
more predictable monthly bills
has been achieved. There are
still peaks and valleys easily
noticeable if you chart the aver-
age rates throughout the year.
And although bills were stable
in October-December 2010, the
average bill was still higher than
some other cities and a good bit
higher than the private utilities.
One criticism leveled is that
the city could be more scientific
about the months it chooses to re-
plenish the rate stabilization fund.
Instead of choosing high elec-
tric usage times like the winter
months, it could choose months
when the weather is milder.
Although the city wasn't able
to transfer any revenue from util-
ities to the general fund, accord-
ing to City Clerk Linda Johns,
the expected transfer for the year
has been budgeted at $721,000.
Revenue is drawn from utilities
to help pay for police, fire, recre-
ation, administration, etc.
The base rate and fuel adjust-
ment aren't the only compo-
nents of a utility bill. Utilities are
taxed, and like the large transfer
of revenue to the general fund,
that utility tax is also paying for
general government services to
the tune of a projected $700,000
this year. That's two times utility
customers are tapped to pay for
city services.
The revenue from utilities
funding general government
exceeds other major revenue
sources like the $571,000 the
city gets from property taxes and
$408,000 it gets from sales tax.

Avoiding peak usage
The city stiji wants its cus-
tomers to understand if electric
consumption can be cd during
traditional peak usage times,
individuals and th9 city has a
whole can save money. It's not
as effective, however, if only
a few people are willing to cut
back. It takes more than a few to
cutting back tohave an impact on
the city's peak usage.
Keeping track of peak usage is
really just common sense. Peak
usage times tend to be during the
early waking and evening hours
when weather is cold and people
want to heat their homes, and in
the afternoon and early evening
when weather is warm and they

school dress up as "beautiful"
women and compete against each
other to be the extreme beauty! It
is quite a funny contest and will
have the whole audience laugh-
ing along the way. It is set to go
on in March and any guy who
wants to participate can sign up
in the front office.

FCAT (gasp) has been creep-
ing up on the school lately. Soph-
.omores will take FCAT Writes it
at the end of February. The thing
that will help the most is strategy
and practice, practice, practice!
Quote for the week: "Practice
means to perform, over and over
again in the face of all obstacles,
some act of vision, of faith, of
desire. Practice is a means of in-
venting the perfection desired."

it is using, and that additional
cost is passed on to customers.
To offset that, customers would
need to reduce the run times of
their heating and cooling system.
There are other opportunities to
conserve energy as well, like
turning of lights, appliances and
electronic equipment when not
in use, and not running a dish-
washer 6r washing machine until
it is fully loaded. More efficient
light bulbs are also available, and
some even look into placing a
time on their hot water tank so it
is not running all day.
Even if your neighbors don't
cooperate, you can still lower
your monthly electric bill by be-
ing mindful of your usage. Com-
missioner Carolyn Spooner said
she began monitoring her usage
by reading her meter daily, and
her bill went down when she was
more conscious of her electric
consumption. When she slipped
and didn't perform the readings
for a time, the size of her bill
went back up.

Notes went for Kittles, although
,there were more than enough
votes there for Ramseur to bridge
Ithe gap for Cummings if she were
Sto pick up those votes.
SAt first glance, Cummings
'would seem to have lock on Pre-
;cinct 3B, where she received al-
most 54 percent of the vote, but
there was a total of only 13 votes
cast in the precinct. Increasing
turnout here could swing the
election in either direction.
SCummings also carried the
Seventh precinct in the primary,
although Ramseur was right be-
hind her with only three votes
Separating. The candidate who
jicks up the most votes from
Ramseur could find enough sup-
port to carry the precinct and win

Church giving Starke landmark a new, but similar mission

Telegraph Editor

This Sunday, First United
Methodist Church of Starke will
celebrate the completion of a
building project and the rebirth
of a city landmark as a center for
community missions.
The church will be dedicating
the renovated Starke firehouse
Sunday, Feb. 20, following its
10 a.m. worship service. The
dedication will include bluegrass
band Moose and Friends and din-
.nor on the grounds.
'Pastor Mike Moore extended-
an invitation to the entire com-
munity to the Sunday ceremo-
ny, of course, but there will be
a'standing invitation to the old
firehouse as the church opens it
as a center to serve the city.
Originally conceived of as a
center for the church's youth,
there are other plans for the
space as well, such as food and
clothing distributions for those Bright r
in need. which w

church's Northeast Flor-

ida District Superintendent Tim
Smiley will be on hand to mark
theoccasion on Sunday, and one
of the oldest members of the con-
gregation, Oleta Hardenbrook,
will be joined by one of the con-
gregation's youngest children to
cut the "ribbon" on the building,
which will actually be an old
fireman's hose.
That nod to the building's

history is representative of the
church's goal to preserve the
landmark. Moore said they even
put a traditional brass fire pole
back in the building, mindful
of how many firefighters would
have slid down a similar pole
in the past as they prepared to
risk their lives for someone they
didn't know. It brings to mind the
deepest meaning of the religion.

"We won't be sliding down a
fire pole, but we'll be bringing
people there, so it's still a build-
ing that's going to save lives,"
Moore said.
Though it is an extension of
the church, the decision not to
make the building match the
church was a conscious one.
For one thing, they wanted to
maintain the historic feel of the
building so people would always
know it was once the city's fire-
house. It also doesn't scream
religious building, which could
make it more appealing to some
of the people the church is trying
to reach.
The building was painted a
distinct color and a bright red aw-
ning hangs above the former fire
bay doors, which have now been
replaced with French doors.
Interior changes include new
electric wiring and plumbing,
the addition, of drop ceilings,
heating and air, construction of
a large, accessible restroom and
a small stage, and installation of
some high-tech amenities. Then
there was the new roof and the
new floors. Stevenson Construc-
tion did a phenomenal job on
the project, Moore said, as did
the various committee members
from the church's congregation
who worked hard to conceive
and guide the project.
Downstairs, there is dark,
contemporary vibe, perfect for
the Saturday morning coffee bar
ministry aimed at teens who will

be able to show up with their lap-
tops and take advantage of the-
free Wi-Fi service. There's plen-
ty of room to relax and hang out;-:
The stage boasts a flat-screenf
television, ideal for movies, vid-
eo workshops, etc., and there's:;
room for performances, like the

The building is a work-in prog-'
.ress that will one day include a-
patio out front with tables and..
chairs and fire hydrant fountains,.
Moore said.
The ability to acquire the fire-
house was a prayer answered, he-
added, and it required some fast
footwork when the city finally
decided to sell the property. Ev-
erything fell into place, and the
city was gracious in the deal it
struck with the church as well,"
he said.
Sunday's event is free to all
who want to come, Moore said.
The city's officials and firefight-
ers will be there in recognition of
their partnership and the ongoing
commitment to.serve the city. -.
"Not only is the church cel-.
ebrating, we want the city to cel-,
ebrate with us," said Moore. :

Jones drove a truck outfitted to
sell meat door-to-door. The truck
pulled into the front yard of a

around 7:45 p.m. After the truck
stopped, Jones' two passengers,
hopped out and asked the hom-

some meat.
The homeowner said "Yes,"

money. But when he returned

2 Bradford women celebrate milestone birthdays

Regional News/Sports Editor

A Minnie Pearl tribute artist
helped Eva Shuford celebrate
her birthday, while Louie Belle
Parks' birthday party featured an
Elvis tribute artist.
What's interesting to note is
that Shuford was a year old when
the real Pearl was born, while
Parks was 28 when "the King"
was born.
Tribute artists have now tak-
en'the place of those deceased
icons, but Shuford and Parks
seem to still be going strong after
celebrating their 1001h and 105'h
birthdays, respectively, in Janu-
Shuford, who was born Jan.
26, 1911, said she never dreamed
she'd be.celebrating 100 years.
Parks, who was born Jan. 31,
1906, never dreamed she'd
make it to 100 either, saying in
1996 that she didn't think she'd
be around to celebrate another
Well, Parks reached 100 and
has passed it.
"I can't believe it," she said.
SShuford, who is the oldest
living member of Grace United
Methodist Church, still lives
oji her own in Lawtey, where
he wakes up every morning to
fix herself coffee,'oatmeal and
scrambled eggs. She does some
light housework throughout the
day, does her own laundry. Her
"baby," 70-year-old son, James
Shuford, brings her a plate of
food every night.
'"I stay by myself quite a bit
and just do little things," said
Shuford, who does live with one
dog and one cat.
SHer son Glenn Shuford, who
lives next door to hdr, said she
also "checks on her neighbors a
couple times a day."

until she was 99, had a doctor
who always told her she was go-

him and, like Shuford, has had no
major health issues. She goes for
checkups every six months.
"They never found anything
wrong with me," Parks said.
When asked what the secret to

A layup by the Warriors'
Keith George, who led all

Justin McBride put an end to
the run with a basket off of an

Ebenezer Scrooge to turn from
his miserly ways and embrace
happiness and his fellow man,
but the support the Bradford

Pantry received this past
December needed no such
spiritual intervention-
Bradford County showed
tremendous support of the
Food Pantry all year long.
Despite the fact that the
numbers of people served by
the Food Pantry increase every
year, the community has
enabled the organization and
its strictly volunteer workers to
feed so many month after
month, and year after year.
That support enabled the Food
Pantry to feed 1,661 people
this past December, which was
the highest number of people
for 2010.
However, more than 1,000
people were fed during a total
of seven months last year. The
overall number fed for the year
was 13,590-a record that
eclipsed the 2009 total of

a payment of sorts-the
gratification that comes with
knowing one has done his or
her part to make someone's
life just a little bit easier.
"It's extremely gratifying to
be able to feed people,"
McRae said.
The Food Pantry, which is
located at 321 W. Andrew St.
(across from Powell's on U.S.
301), fed 2,301 people in
1989-its inaugural year of
operation. During the 10 years
that followed, the numbers
mainly stayed below 3,000
with the exception of 1991
(3,176 fed), 1992 (4,401) and
1993 (3,464).
Beginning in 1998, the
number of people fed has risen
every year, from 2,362 to last
year's 13,590.
The numbers are sobering at
face value. What McRae finds
even more sobering is the fact
that if you take the people who
are incarcerated in prison out
of the equation, there are
approximately 25,000 people
in Bradford County. That
means the Food Pantry is now

Dear Editor:
We would like to thank the
Santa Fe College Boots 'n BBQ,
Bear Bryan, Cheryl Canova, and
their volunteers for a wonderful
first annual bicycle ride. The
route was very nice and showed
the beautiful country of Brad-
lord. The rest stops had great
snacks and were staffed by
wonderful volunteers. The bar-
becue lunch for the riders at the
end of the ride was delicious.
Many riders came from out of
town and were impressed with
the event.
Congratulations on a very
successful bicycle ride. We ap-
preciate your efforts to help

Deaf Editor:
I would like to convey a spe-
cial thanks to Ms. Debe Ste-
phenson, UCHS Assistant Prin-
cipal Mike Ripplinger, and Un-
ion County School Resource
Officer Deputy Crews for their
efforts and quick response on
Friday, 'Feb. 11, when my
daughter became a victim of
felony theft by a fellow student
during the school day. Far too
often, people take for granted
and fail to acknowledge the
works of another. I want to take
this opportunity to commend
these individuals for their dili-
gence and thoroughness in in-
vestigating this matter and their
dedication and commitment to
provide a safe and secure envi-
ronment for our students. They
truly went above and beyond the
call of duty and I am grateful for
each of them. Union County is
very fortunate to have these re-
markable staff members em-
ployed in our school system.
Thank you for your outstanding

Week 6 and still
Dear Editor:
Week 6 of the Biggest Loser
contest at Mind and Body Fit-
ness gym: The last two weeks
were intense workouts that left
us tired and sore. Debbie Law-
rence surprised the group with
Valentine's healthy snacks.
After weighing in, we
munched on: fresh melon
wrapped in prosciutto, okra and
low-fat cream cheese wraps,
mixed nuts and fresh local
strawberries dipped in. dark
chocolate. All were delicious.
As a group, we have lost over
140 pounds in six weeks. On a
personal level, I lost four pounds
this week for a total of 36
pounds. Working out in the gym
five days a week combined with
a healthy diet; I feel great! My
energy level is up and food in-
take is down. Not experiencing
cravings is a big plus. I am be-
ginning to discover that healthy
food can taste just as satisfying.
Root vegetables (carrots, tur-
nips, rutabagas and parsnips)
have been especially good this
winter. I've explored new foods
to prepare and serve. Each bite
of every meak- has beeitenjoy-
able. This week, we will pass
our halfway point. Looking for-

,ward to week seven!

SKeystone Heights resident
Voan Jones knows all about the
jgo-called "War Brides." She's
t6ne of them, having traveled
Wrom her home in Australia
after marrying her husband,
Larry, who was an officer in

Jones said. "I came on the

vhich meets on the third

Joies heard of the' World
War II War Brides Association
through her brother, who lives
in Australia, but read of the
association in the newspaper.
She contacted the group,
which began on the West
Coast, and attended a
convention in Orlando in 2008.
The convention impressed
Jones in that no one seemed to
be a stranger.
"You walk in, and
everybody's like a sister to
you," she said.
On her way home after the
convention, Jones told her
husband she was going to start

the club's last meeting
confirmed that.
"They're a bunch of

When you've got something

Sometimes, it was simply

Club member Ivy
Hettenhausen, who is
originally from England, said
she and her husband started
dating after he lost a coin flip
with his brother. The two men
were at a dance and fancied the
young lady Hettenhausen was
with. They flipped a coin to
see which one would go after
her, while the loser would take
Hettenhausen home.
Hettenhausen confessed that
she wasn't even supposed to
be at the dance, and she
certainly wasn't supposed to
be associating with an
American. Those were her
father's orders.
"I was forbidden to go to a
dance, and I was forbidden to
talk to Yanks," she said.
What made it even worse
was the last name of the man
who would eventually become
her husband. Hettenhausen
said her father never stopped
fighting World War I-a war
that claimed the lives of two
brothers-and he had no love
for Germans. Therefore, when
he found out the Yank who
was hanging out with his
daughter had the name
"Hettenhausen," he wasn't
"He said, 'He's a German.
You are not to see him
anymore,"' Hettenhausen said.

father just couldn't get past the

eventually made an impression

"He started bringing my
father cartons of cigarettes and

we were looking for a
shortstop," Bradford head
coach Daniel Davis said. "She
came in right away, stepped in
that role and really took it
over, solidifying our infield as

Davis said Tucker's mobility
helps her make a wide range of
plays in the infield. At the
plate, she can either lay down

Those are the abilities
Tucker brought as a freshman.
Davis said over the last three
seasons, Tucker has honed
those skills and has become a

also jumped from a seventh-

"It's just unbelievable what
she's done this year," Union
coach Brian Griffis said.

and started training hard. The
sky's the limit for her next
year. I see no problem, barring
injury, with her breaking all

Cook, who already owns all

said, "This season was all

Wright and Hankerson each
wound up losing to multiple-
state qualifiers, with Wright
getting put out by a 7-4 loss
and Hankerson losing a 10-

point match that went to the
third period. Gorden lost a
tough, one-point match, while
Kebby, who doesn't normally
wrestle in the heavyweight
class, but did so. in the
regionals simply because he
filled in for an injured wrestler
at the district finals, put his
opponent on his back in the
final 10 seconds of his final
match. Adams said Kebby
could've gotten a pin if he just
had a couple of more seconds.:
Adams had hopes that Paulk,
Sa junior, would qualify for

lost his final match by only a
point to'a state qualifier from

"They all looked great,"
Bradford coach Chris Adams
said. "They went way above
my expectations."
A highlight for Reddish,
who wrestles in the 140-pound
class, was pinning a state
qualifier from last year in the
first period. He also lost a
hard-fought match that was
scoreless in the third period.
Reddish took his opponent
down, but the wrestler escaped
and took Reddish down in
what would be an eventual 3-2
"He wrestled great," Adams
said, adding, "It was his time
to go to state."
James, who wrestles in the
189-pound class, has two more
opportunities to go to state
after this season, but the first-
year wrestler got it done this
season. He battled a shoulder
injury he sustained in the
district' finals, which hindered
him in a second-round loss at
the regional finals. James iced
his shoulder down and
returned to pin three opponents
in a row, including a state
qualifier from last season he

Paul Hagel
A. Hagel, 74, of Keystone
Heights, passed away on Feb. 1,
2011, at Shands UF in Gainesville
following and extended illness.
Mr. Hagel was born on Jan. 21,
1937, in Aberdeen, S.D., to the
late Anthony John and Beatrice
Henrietta Zock Hagel. Mr. Hagel
received his degree in architecture
from North.. Dakota State
University, and was employed
with Flad and Associates
Architectural Firm.
After moving to Gainesville in
1987, he became a season ticket
holder for the University of
Florida Gators and enjoyed
attending their football, basketball,
and baseball games. At the office
and at home, Paul was known for
his uncanny dry sense of humor.
One day he said he looked at that
beautiful duck in his scope and
just couldn't do it anymore.
His appreciation for the
wilderness went from duck"
hunting trips with friends to
becoming an avid nature
photographer. A soft spot in his
heart opened and Paul began
finding peace in nature, his back
yard, and in caring for animals,
especially in later years, his
multitude of cats. He was also
known to spend endless hours
gardening and feeding the birds
(and squirrels!).
Paul had such a green thumb
that their yard in Keystofe won
"Yard of the Month". Paul was
very instrumental in a variety of
areas with his architectural
experience. He had'a hand in
designing the new emergency
room and cancer center at the
Shands University Hospital.
Since moving to Keystone
Heights, Paul would always be
studying and researching the Civil
War and World War II which led
him to become involved with
"Capt. Bob" and Wings of Dreams
at the Keystone Heights Air Park.
He enjoyed many long discussions
with Ralph about architecture and
restoration of old buildings and
spending most of the- day
"thinking" with his best friend
Richard in their sheds and yards.
Paul and his wife Chris formed
special bonds with their friends
and neighbors. Chris extends her
love and deepest appreciation to
their Florida family and friends:
Richard and Louvenia Addison,
"Miss June" Kennedy and Mom,
Cyndi, Dr. Denise Seufert and
staff at Butler Plaza Animal
Hospital, Freddie Robert and Flad
Architects, Captain Bob and
Susan, Drew and Christi Lambert,
and Paul's special "Bootsie'"
Lambert. God bless you all. Also,
to the friends of Bill W. for the
past 26 plus years, in times of
need, it is nice to know you have a
place to go.
Paul is survived by::his vife of
23 years, Chris; children, Marc,
Steve, Julie and Andrea;
stepchildren, Amy and Troy;
sisters, Midge and Marilyn; his
nine grandchildren, three great-
grandchildren, two step-
grandchildren, four nieces, and the
mother of his children.
A memorial mass will be held
on Thursday, Feb. 24, at II a.m.
in the St. William Catholic Church
with Father Mike Williams
officiating. As Paul would say,
"Let's blow this pop stand" and go
the parish hall for some eats
following the service. In lieu of
flowers, Paul would love for
contributions to the made to the
Humane Society of the United
States, 2100 L. St. NW,
Washington, DC 20037.
Arrangements are under the care
of Jones-Gallagher Funeral Home
of Keystone Heights.

Many members of the local chapter of the World War II War Brides Association are
iEnglish natives, including (I-r) Joyce Bell, Pamela Guarino and Mary Tunison.

Continued from Page 7B

We'll get in trouble."
Despite her concerns, she
and her friend talked to the two
men, who would eventually
leave and pay for the ladies'
Back at work, Bell and her
friend normally worked in the
store's office, but they would
fill in for the cashiers so they
could break for tea. It was
while they were filling in for
the cashiers that the two men
they met in the cafd entered the
store, asking for a certain man
whom they were told they
could buy liquor from.
"One thing led to another,"
Bell said. "He wanted to take
me to a movie."
Blanche Dommer, another
War Bride from England,
admitted she didn't even like
her husband when she first met
him, but in time, "I got to sort
of like him."
"He was different," Dommer
said. "I like things that are
I"Ye've been married 58
:To get married to women
abroad, American servicemen

had to get written permission
from their commanding
officers at least two months in
advance of the wedding. The
prospective brides had to be
interviewed by those
commanding officers.

"They literally got
interrogated by the U.S.
military before they were even
allowed to marry the men,"
said Geraldine "Gerri" Kohn,
the co-chair of the Northeast
Florida Chapter of the World
War II War Brides Association
whose mother moved to the
U.S. from Liverpool, England,
after marrying an American
serviceman. "The priest even
did interrogations."
Kohn's mother, like many
like her, went to Tidworth
Transit Camp on Salisbury
Plain for assembly and
processing'prior to traveling to
the United States. Conditions
at the camp were poor, with a
lack of facilities to provide
such things as laundry services
and hot water.
"I had a 6-month-old baby,"
Hettenhausen said. "They had
no place to put babies, so they
were giving us boxes to put the
babies in. Thp babies got sick.
"We were at the camp for

two weeks. Everybody was
getting sick."
The first official sailing of a
War Bride ship was Jan. 26,
1946. The SS Argentina sailed
from Southampton with 452
women on board.
Hettenhausen boarded a ship
in February, which was not an
ideal time to cross the ocean.
"We were hitting every
storm on the Atlantic," she
said. "It was terrible."
Dommer, who did not marry
her husband until 1952,
traveled to the U.S. at a later
date and did so with her
husband. They did not travel
by ship, but they had their bit
of trepidation as well. They
flew from Scotland to the
Azores, then left the Azores to
head to the States. Engine
trouble forced them back to the
"There were two big planes
on each side (of the plane they
were traveling on)," Dommer
said. "They escorted us back to
the Azores.

"We took off again. Just as
we got to somewhere in
Massachussetts, I threw up.
I'm a good traveler, but the
plane was going dip, dip. I
don't know to. this day how

long it took us to get from
England to the States."
Many of the War Brides,
though, traveled by themselves
or with young children. They
set out to begin their new lives,
but for some, the realization hit
that they were going to do so
in a strange land. Kohn said
her mother began crying upon
arriving to the U.S.
"Mom said she was fine
until she saw the Statue of
Liberty," Kohn said. "Then she
realized she was 3,000 miles
away from home."
Hettenhausen arrived with a
7-month-old boy. She was
supposed to meet her husband
in St. Louis.
"I was the only one in the
station who hadn't been picked
up," she said. "They had given
my husband the wrong date."
Bell's husband was waiting
for her on the right day of
arrival, though Bell said the
scene that awaited her and the
other War Brides was a little
overwhelming-a large group
of men the ladies had trouble
recognizing because they were
in civilian clothes rather than
in uniform.
"He found me right away,"
Bell said of her husband.
Bell found out about the
Northeast Florida Chapter of
the World War II War Brides
Association by reading one of
the announcements Jones has
been placing in area
newspapers. She has been
attending meetings for only a
couple of months, but she's
enjoying herself.
"It's interesting," she said.
"I'm a people person."
Hettenhausen's daughter
read about the group in the
newspaper as well, but
Hettenhausen said she had no
desire to go to a meeting. She
said her daughter dragged her
to her first. There,
Hettenhausen was pleasantly
surprised to talk to someone
from Liverpool. Someone else
she talked to lived 5 miles
from her hometown. One
person's brother came to the
States on the same ship
Hettenhausen said.

"It's like going back home,"
she said.
The local chapter of the
World War II War Brides
Association does more than
meet monthly and reminisce
about days gone by. The
chapter collected toys for the
Children's Home Society of
Florida-Buckner Division as
part of a Christmas project last
year. This year, with some
cooperation from Wal-Mart,
the chapter has another project
in which duffel bags will be
given to the Children's Home
Society of Florida children to
use to pack their belongings
when they are placed in foster
Another club project has,
been to send care packages to
service personnel overseas, but
a problem with actually getting
those care packages to service
personnel has caused the group
to consider making care
packages for the children
served by the Childen's Home

Society of Florida.
If you are a foreign-born
War Bride-or War Groom-
from World War II up to the
present conflict, or a child or
grandchild of either a 'War
Bride or a War Groom, you are-
invited to attend the Northeast
Florida Chapter of the World
War II War Brides
Association's meetings on the
third Saturday of every month
at noon at Cedar River in
Middleburg. You just never
know what you might hear.
"It's funny to listen to all the
ways (the women) met their
husbands," Bell said. "I guess
we all have stories to tell."
For more information on the
local chapter, please call Jones
at 352-473-5450 or 904-472-

Lind and all the girls there."
Last season, FSCJ had four
of its five sophomores accept
scholarships to four-year
schools-two signed with
Division I schools and two
signed with Division -
schools. (The fifth sophomore
gave up softball to concentrate
on her major at the University
of Florida.)
Davis said it's a good
situation for Tucker.
"I think if she keeps working
like she is and keeps
progressing like she is, she
won't have any issues with
going to a four-year college
when she's done," he said.
