In light of budget proposals currently
under consideration in Tallahassee, the
district could stand to lose around $2
million in its 2012 budget. While there
\vill certainly be a hole left in the school
district's budget, nioney set aside for
a rainy day could help get the district
through the next year without drastic
cuts, according to school Finance Di-
rector Julee Tinsler.
Tmnsler tried to help school board
members, and new board members
in particular, understand the district's
budget and what the future holds as of

via phone
Residents of northeast Florida have
been complaining to local law enforce-
ment agencies about telephone solicita-
tions that offer free energy surveys.
The solicitations attempt to set up an
appointment for representative to visit
the home and complete a survey. They
claim the homeowner may be eligible
for federal stimulus money of ~more
than $3,000. Homeowners report that
.they've received repeated calls from
companies offering the energy surveys,
and some say the calls have become ha-
rassmng in nature.
Clay Electric Cooperative wants its
members to know that it does not solicit
energy surveys over the phone. Clay
Electric offers free energy audits to help
members better understand how they're
using energy and how they can lower
their monthly power consumption.

Sings as high as 30 to 50 percent if the

'Schools are funded by local,state:and
federal dollars, and there has been an 8
percent decline in state revenue since
2009 and a 2 percent decline in local
revenue. That has been balanced by a
10 percent increase in federal dollars,
but those stimulus funds are disappear-

Some of the funds received are allo-
cated for specific costs and can only be
spent for those~ purposes. There are d'at-
egorical furids for transportation, text-

because a full 28 percent of per-student

asked on prior tests, and sample
questions can be found on the
There isn't anything wrong in
teaching to the tests; if a student
can do well on the test, he will
have an acceptable high school
education, and be able to pass the
college entrance exam, which is
admittedly the goal of FCAT.
(See item four in the school grad-
ing standards).
This retired teacher continued
by saying, "The schools should
concentrate on the lowest quartile
(25 percent) of students, because
this is the largest contingent of
problem' students, and will con-
tinue to be the most troublesome
group throughout the school ex;-
Retaining children in grade,
with a single .exception, is no
longer allowed. New rules allow
a student to be retained in grade
three for one year, and 19ith that
exception, every student must be
promoted annually.r Some edu-
cators foresee the dropout rate
increasing in the middle school
years, creating a problem for so-
clety. Students bumping along at
the bottom of the class and being
promoted in keeping with current
rules and regulations, will quit
school upon reaching age 16, the
age at which being in school is
no longer mandatory. It will: be
far better if provisions are made
to provide vocational training for '
those youngsters.
In Germany, I have been told,
students are tested sometime in
middle school, and those with-
out necessary college credentials
(grades, ability or desire) are
slated for vocational training,
with the high achievers continu-
ing academic training. The sys-
tem doesn't preclude a student
from attending college as he
grows older and has a change of
attitude; however, if he doesn't
attend college, he will have a
trade to fall back on.
Germany, by the way, has
been called the "new China"
of Europecmk itlpid-wlmi

for home consumption, as well
as export. Business is booming
and employment is on top level.
Could Germany be doing some-
thing right?
SWhy is Bradford High School
not doing well in FCAT? Look
first at the community at large.
Bradford County people do not
support their high school, in
comparisori to neighboring coun-
ties. There is no parent-teacher
organization in the school, and
turnout for high school sports
is sparse. This says something
about the community.
A successful business owner
in Starke points out Bradford
County voters' propensity for

located, a peripheral advantage,
possibly unintended, but certain-
ly revealing,
High schools are now evalu-
ated differently from schools
teaching the lower grades.
"High schools are assigned a
grade based 50 percent upon stu-
dent achievement and learning
gains data from the FCAT and 50
percent upon sevei-al non-FCAT
based components. School grades
communicate to the public how
Ivell a school is (1) performing
relative to state standards; (2) en-
couraging its students to partici-
pate and succeed in accelerated
course offerings, (3) graduating
its students; and (4) preparing
its students for secondary educa-
tion. School grades are calculated
based on annual learning gains of
each student toward achievement
of Sunshine State Standards, the
progress of the lowest quartile
of students, the meeting of pro-
ficiency standards, the gradu-
ation rates of all students and
those identified as academically
at risk, the participation and per-
formance of students in acceler-
ated course work, and the* post
secondary read iness of students."
(Florida Schools)
Based on FCAT results and
this additional criteria, Bradford
County High. School received
another D for the year 2010. The
accompanying chart of 20 ran-
domly selected elementary and
high schools from across the state
show school grades for the past
three years and the percentage of
minority students. A pattern of
school grades in relation to mi-
nority student numbers does not
appear to be consistent with the
idea that black students reduce
Overall school grades. One must
look elsewhere to determine the
low grades received by Bradford
County High School.
Following each year of testing,
the state publishes voluminous
charts and reports advising the
school of its successes and fail-
ures. One such report shows BHS
achieved 82 percenfof the criteria
needed to make Adequate Yearly
progresss, but the school -missed
earning a C because -is lowest
per-forming students didn't make
adequate learning gains,
Bradford County school of-
ficials are scratching their, col-
lective heads in an effort to de-
termine the cause of Bradford
High School's low grades. Some
schools that have done well in
the FCAT exams and have re-
ceived higher grades have been
charged with "teaching the test."
One school official said Bradford
schools focus on teaching the
standards covered by the test, not
the test itself.
While discussing that com-
ment, a retired .teacher said,
"Teach to the test questions!"
Although teachers do not know

voting school superintendents
out of office each four years.
The record is unenviable and the
trend for one-term superinten-
dents must be changed. Actually,
Bradford County voters have
elected good people to the office,
but after four years they're ready
to change, even though there has
been no malfeasance and no mis-
appropriation of funds, two of
the most common charges.
Since the retirement of coach
David Hurse, there has not been
a long-tenured coach for the var-
sity football or basketball teams.
Bringing in a new coach each
year doesn't build morale in
'team or supporters, and when a
new coach comes aboard, only a
handful of people recognize his
name in the community. School
officials suffer an identity cri-
sis in Starke,and throughout the
Teacher pay in Bradford
County isn't the culprit for the
low FCAT grade in 2010. Flori-
da ranks 48th amOng the statesin
teacher pay, but Bradford Coun-
ty is somewhere in the middle,
among Florida counties. Several

counties .have starting salaries
below that of Bradford County,
and the maximum is in' keeping
with the state average.
When school is in session,
there are, enough student cars
parked around Bradford High
School to move the whole stu-
dent body at one time. Now there
is nothing wrong with student-
owned vehicles, but if the student
is flipping hamburgers all eve-
.ning precluding time for study
and/or homework, then priorities
must be established. The many
fast food restaurants in Starke
represent a mixed blessing in
providing part-time jobs for stu-
dents, but if those jobs are hold-
ing down school grades, the jobs
will have extracted a huge price
to be paid by the students down
the road.
Parents have a responsibil-
ity for student grades. County
schools are not designed to by
babysi tting organizations, operat-
ing eight-10 hours aday.Children
are sent there to learn. When they
bring home report cards, parents
know when their kids' grades are
unacceptably low. There was a

time when teachers would meet
with parents when student grades
were lower than they should be.
Teachers often know a student is
having a problem before the par-
ent does, providing an opportu-
nity for private counseling early
on, when intervention may do the
most good.
Consolidation. Bradford Coun-
ty isn't ready for further con-
solidation at this time, but con-
solidation of the schools brings
a county together as nothing else
can. Bradford County schools
are already consolidated above
the sixth grade, which is good,
but consolidation of all schools.
would be a factor in making the;
county into a single, cohesive
village. This thought reminds
us of the quote by former first
lady Hillary Clinton, now secre-
tary of state, when she quoted an
old, African proverb that says "It
takes a village to raise a child."
There is truth in the adage, and
when a child is conscious of vil-
lage eyes watching, his behavior
becomes more circumspect and

FCAT's role
in education
and Bradford's

The Little Springs Elementary
School at Worthington Springs
only went through the eighth
grade, but students graduated
with an excellent education as far
as it went. It didn't teach geom-
Setty, algebra or foreign language,
but teachers did a thorough job
in instruction in the basic school
subjects .
Lake Butler built and staffed
a high school in 1908, and sev
eral prominent families came to
Lake Butler to take advantage of
the educational opportunities. In
the 1930s, during the Great De-
'pression, school funds: got low,
but the schools kept operating
full eight-month terms, begin-
ning each year in late July~ and
running into March, to accom-
modate farm families in utiliz-
ing children in the fields. Union
County had the high school in
Lake Butler, but also had several
small schools scattered around
the county, some located at tur-
pentine still sites. L
When my parents moved from
Marion County to Union County
in 1932, we saw a profound dif-
ference in school because of the
difference in funding. Marion
Couilty was wealthy compared to
rural Union County, but in spite
of financial differences, Union
County graduates went on to do
welljin the working world.
Somewhere around the' end of
World War II, American educa-
tors suffered an erroneous idea
thatjchildren were working too
hard; with -the curriculum that
had been proven to be successful
and began to eliminate important
subjects -from the agenda. High
schools gave up foreign language
(Americans don't need to learn
Latino, Spanish or French), all
math above algebra 1, some his-
tories, literature: and other sub-
jects' vital to an excellent educa-
tion. What could they have been
thinli~ng't~hools were neveritw-
tend for babysitting facilities,
but (lhat's what they became in
many cases.
Fdrtunately, there were some
people in industry who began to
demand high~ school graduates
that could read and write, and
do elementary mathematics. Anid
their~demands were heard.
In Florida, and throughout the
American South, black children
were segregated and provided a
poor, second-rate education. That
situation changed in the mid-
1960s, when all schools were
integrated. There had been pre-
dictions of catastrophic uprisings
in the deep South, but they never
materialized, and the change in
society was effected with far less
controversy than expected.
ofFlorida schools contin edla:
ed to the integration of schools,
that is, until the mid 1990s, when
leaders moved to bring schools
into the 2l"' century~ by restoring
a strong curriculum of subjects,
most of which had been aban-
doned in years past.
In Florida, the program set up
to measure learning is .known
as FCAT, the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test. It en-
compasses all public elementary
and high schools. It is a system
of testing under rigid conditions
and security, with question pro-
gressively more difficult each

Time with family is true value for local prospectors

$1,600 per ounce, "that's not
bad ."
More importantly, though,
the activity makes for a fun
outing for the family. Leshuk
has gotten his grandchildren
involved and interested, and in
turn, the Starke chapter of the
Gold Prospectors Association
of America has junior
division for children 16 and
"We are the only chapter
,that has anything open for
kids," Leshuk said.
Junior members take part in
various activities, such as
mytking beaded jewelry and
leather items: to sell at club
fundraisers. Of course, they
also get to go out and look for
gold, gemstones arid other
Leshuk planned .a special
activity for the junior members
during the club's annual picnic
at Mike Roess Gold Head
Branch State Park. He buried
coins without the children's
knowledge before they scoured
an area with metal detectors.
"They found those coins,"
Lesbuk said. "They just about
went crazy. It was the coolest
thing. They were just about as
happy as a bear in a honey
tree ."
Lesbuk's secret didn't last.
He was talking with adult
chapter members at a
following meeting about what
he had done when one of the
junior members overheard the
conversation *
"One of them heard me and
said, 'You did what?' He
thought those things had been
buried there for years," Leshuk

metal detecting. They didn't
find much with th~e detector,
but Leshuk. noticed little
ripples of black sand on the
beach. Black sand is usually an
indicator of the presence of
"I told Jadin to scrape it up
in the pan- just the top layer
of the sand--to see if we could
find anything," Leshuk said. "I

stuff. Sure enough, we pannedsen
it out, and there were four
specks of gold in our pan.
"Now it would've taken us
all day to get any kind of
weight at all, but it was there.
It was fun."
There' are approximately 10
junior members of the chapter,
and they've proven to be good
recruiters of new members of
any age. They tell their friends
about their activities, which
gets not only their friends
interested, but their friends'
parents as well.
In the December 2010
edition of the Gold Prospectors
Association of America's
"Pick and Shovel Gazette,"
Leshuk ivas quoted by Brad
Jones as saying, "When
(children) get involved and
interested in things, the first
thing they're going to do is get
their parents involved. It
promotes family, and we're
kind of happy about that."
-Leshuk first got interested in
gold prospecting by watching
the show "Gold Fever" on the
Outdoor Channel. The show is
hosted by Tom Massie, who is
the president of the Gold
Prospectors Association of
America. (Massie's 'father,
George "Buzzard" Massie
founded the association.)

meets every third Thursday of
the month at Butler Seafoood
House in Lake Butl~r at 7 p.m.
"I figured this would be nice
if we could get this .together
and start our own club and
chapter," Leshuk said.
Lesbuk wdLs thrilled to see
six to seven new faces at the
chapter's January meeting and
said high interest and number
of members forced the chapter
to find a new meeting place to
accommodate it after
outgrowing a -room at the
IHOP in Starke.,,
"It's a growing thing, .
Leshuk said of the interest in
gold prospecting. "The gold is
there for the picking."
Leshuk said it's a fun way of
making rnoney. Over the last
year or two, he said he and his
wife, Charlynn, have probably
collected an ounce Emd d half
of gold. ~Leshuk said with gold
prices increasing to $.1500-

Regional News/Sports Editor
The days of mad dashes to
certain regions pf the country
to cash in on gold fever may
be over, but there is still gold
in them thar hills for those who
take the time to look.
John Leshuk of Starke
admits he has come down with
gold fever, but the activity of
prospecting for the precioq ~
metal is more about cashing in,
It has led to quality time with
family, and that is priceless.
S"It basically got our family
doing more things as a
family," Leshuk said.
Leshuk and his family
members are part of an
approximate 30-member group
that makes up the Starke
chapter. of the Gold
Prospectors Association of
America--the Gold, Gem and
Treasure Hunters Club of
North Florida. The chapter

Gold, Gem and Treasure Hunters President John
Leshuk (far right) shows his grandsons Jadin Paul
(far left) and Zach Paul how to use a metal detector.

The whole prospect of
prospecting seemed "kind of
cool," Leshuk said, so he
mailed off a request for a Gold
Prospectors Association of
America membership kit.
Leshuk and his wife have
family in Georgia, so when
.they paid a vigit, the
mountainous areas of that state
seemed natural places to go
looking for gold.
"Me, and my little grandson,
we decided to go out and hunt
for gold," Leshuk said. "Lo

and behold, we found gold in a
small part of the Oconee
That "little grandson" was
Jon Dakota "Cody" Andrade,
who is now 17. Leshuk said he
saw that Andrade enjoyed
himself and figured maybe
looking for gold would be an
activity his 15 other grandkids
would enjoy.
"Sure enough, we got them
started in it," he said.

The highlight of the day happened in Senate
chambers around 4:45 p.m. I walked over to the
Senate around 4:30 curious on the outcome of Seh.
Dean's effort to remove the privatization language
for North East Florida State Hospital. When ,I
entered the chamber, I could tell the senator was ipn
deep thought and I remained in the rear portion of
the chamber. Withi n moments,Sen. Dean presented
his amendment and gave a compelling argumeist
against the privatization of this good facility. Four
other senators spoke in favor of the amendment,
and on a voice vote, the amendment was adopted.
We still have another 30 days to go until Sine Die,

On Thursday, members returned to the chamber
for eight hours of debate on the House budget and

appropriations meeting to hear HE l329 that extends
eligibility for McKay scholarships to students who
have been issued a 504 accommodation plari.
However, the bill excludes students that have been
issued a 504 accommodation plan with duration of
six months or less. The bill was favorably passed

on Government Reorganization meeting. About 10
minutes after the meeting was called to order, Go~v.

ask for our support on the proposed committee bill
reorganizing the various economic development
state agencies. The committee favorably referred
the bill after three hours of questions, debate and
public testimony.

A recent Forbes article reported on the
deregulation of Florida's Interior Designers,
stating that Florida is one of only three states that
regulate this profession. Forbes reports that in the
1950s, only 1 in 20 American workers needed the
government's permission to work; today that figure
is nearly 1 in 3. It seems that over time, states and
cities have created what some would consider to
be anti-competitive regulations and government-
imposed barriers to entry.

budget cuts to education. When adjusted for the

I have also received many e-mails concerned
with cuts to libraries. The House budget provides
$17.8 million for state aid to libraries. This

For a county to qualify for an equalization

prospecting has treated us like
family," Leshuk said.
There are various tools one
can use wvhen prospecting for
gold--metal detectors, pans,
sluice boxes and dredges.
Leshuk said he's basically
limited to w\hat he can afford
right nowv, but he would love
to use a dredge, which floats
upon the water and collects
material from beneath the

water and actually suck the dirt
and everything up out of the

Though the activity can be
profitable, it is no easy, get-
rich-quick scheme. Leshuk
said it's hard work that
requires a lot of patience.
However, for a -casual
hobbyist like Leshuk, small
amounts here and there add up
over time. .
"It's Mother Nature's
welfare system," Leshuk said.
"All you've got to do is put
some work into it."
For the uninitiated, the
whole activity of gold
prospecting may be hard to
grasp. In a flyer for the Starke
chapter of~ the Gold
Prospectors Association of
America, it is printed: "It is
difficult for some to
understand why we do what
we do, and why we play so
hard doing it. They will never
totally understand until that old
gold bug bites and gives them
a long-lasting case of gold
fever." .
Leshuk, despite his interest

in prospecting, was skeptical at
first until he saw results.
"You're really, I guess,
pessimistic when you first go
out," he said. "You figure,
'Yeah, this is just a come-on.
There's no gold out here.'
When you get those few flakes
of gold in your pan the first
time, it's just like, 'Wow.' You
just can't get over the idea you
have found gold, and it was
just laying in a stream here.,,

Store of Starke

is recognized as

2011 national

Premier Dealeru
The Sears Hometown Store
of Starke, has been .named a
e011 Sears Hometown Store
Premier Dealer. This annual
award recognizes Sears
Hometown Stores across the
country that consistently offer
the greatest customer service,
outstanding store performance
and standards, as well as
exceptional demonstrations of
local community involvement.
In January 2011, the Starke
store was one of only 190
locations throughout the U.S.
to receive this recognition at
-the annual Hometowif
Celebration in Orlando.
"To be honored as a Premier
Dealer i~s a great achievement,
dtot only for our store, but also
for the community we strive to
serve everyday," said Steve
Denmark, owner and operator
of the Sears Hometown Store
in Starke. "We could not have
earned this without the support
of our community, and we
want to thank our customers
for shopping with us
throughout the year?
Only 20 percent of Sears
Hometown Stores receive this
prestigious award, and this
year, each store receiving
Preni~ier Dealer status will be
given the opportunity to
participate in an exclusive
charitable event in 2011 to
help .support its community.
One recent example of
charitable giving by the Starke
store is participation in the
local food bank charity.
"We are thrilled to designate
Steve Denmark, his store
manager, Jo Clark, and the
Sears Hometown Store of
Starke a Premier Dealer as a
testament to the hard work and
dedication shonvn u act and

community," said Will Powell,
