School board votes on redistricting

Telegraphz Editor
The Bradford County -SchooF'Boalrd
took the lead Monday night in select-
ing one of three proposed maps for the
county's political districts.
The plans were designated Plah 1A, B
and C, and the school board approved
Plan B. It stretches the northeastern
boundaries of District east across U.S.
301 into District 2, but the southeastern'
portion that extended to S.R. 16 is giv-
en to District 3. District 3 also expands
south across S.R. 100 to take in more of
southern Starke, area which comes out
of District 5. District 3 loses area on its
southern border to District 4.
Recently appointed School Board
Chairman Randy Jones passed the gay-
el in order to make a motion on the is-
sue Monday nig.,ht, but the other three
board members present gave him their
full support. (School Board Member
Roman Alvarez was not present.) The
issue was not on the board's agenda,
but was instead declared an emergency
Jones said during meetings of the
citizen committee that was reviewing
the issue of redistricting, Plan B was
the plan that commissioners and school
board members had the most consensus
on. It was also the plan he and School
Board Member Stacey Creighton
helped draw.
The plan preserves District I as a mi-
nority majority district as required by
court order. Actually it reinstates it as
a minority majority district since recent
census number show that the minority
population numbers had actually fallen '

In last week's Telegraph, we reported that the
Florida Commuissin on Ethics dismissed a
comiplaint against Starker City Clerk Linda
Johns. What do you think of t~he
COmmission s decision? Total votes: 45.

BHS turns


rate around
Telegraph Editor

As dramatic as last year's graduation
rate decline was, Brad~ford High School
managed to make a impressive come-
back, according to this year'.s numbers
released Monday by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education.
2010 marked a five-year low for the
school, but in 2011, BHS nearly recov-
ered, falling just short of the high point
reached in 2009.
In 2009, 72.1 percent of students
graduated or received a special diplo-
ma, but in 2010, that had fallen to 63.6
percent. This year, however, the gradu-
ation rate grew to 71.6 percent.
This is the seventh year the National
Governor's Association rate has been
calculated for Florida. It does not in-
clude GED attainment in the calcula-
tion, but it is the calculation used by
the state's school accountability system
when computing the high school's an-

nuald Cr's graduation rate is still low
relative to other counties. It places the
county 60th amOng the 73 counties and
other programs measured. For compari-
son, Union County's graduation rate of
92.7 percent represented a seven-year
high for the school.
Other local counties had higher grad-
uation rates than Bradford as well. Ala-
chua County's graduation rate was 77.9
=2'et vBaker Cny was 802pr
Columbia County was 86.8 percent.
The state's overall graduation rate--
80.1 percent--was an all-time high for
the state.

for operations


Tel2egraph Editor

The Starke dity Commission has re-
jected applications for the city manager
position and instead decided to adver-
tise for an operations manager.
In doing so, the board is second-
guessing its original intent to find an
applicant with both a college degree in
public or business administration and at
least five years of experience in public
administration. The city requires both
for the position of city maninger, but
only received a handful of applications
that met those minimum qualifications.
Those applicants, however, lacked
experience in utilities and none were
local. The commission has expressed
preferences for those qualities as well.
As it prepares to advertise for an op-
erations manager, the position Ricky
Thompson is retiring from, the com-
mission hasn't given up on finding a
city manager in the new year. When
the commission begins planning for the
2012-13 budget, it wvill try to include
funds for both a city and an operations
The city had just fi nished w\i th a simi-
lar tw~o-man scenario. Uip until the end
of September, the commission had an
operations manager and project direc-
tor, but that project director position
wvas eliminated for lack of funds in the
current budget.
After a lengthy- discussion Dec. 6.
most commissioners decided that re-
placing Thompson's utilities experi-
ence trumped everything else, so the\
are seeking~an operations manager w\ith
that knowledge as well as substantial
experience preparing budgets and man-
aging a w\orkfo~rce.

who was also present at the Dec. 12
school board meeting, agreed there was
no good reason to include prison popu-
lation when drawing district lines.
Sellars had worked on plan of her
own, Plan C, which was one of the final
three up for consideration and took more
area from Districts 4 and 4t. Vaughan
had expressed preference for Plan A,
which was submitted by his office and
tweaked by commissioners, because it
provided clearer lines between districts
than Plan B, but he said Plan B also met
the committee's major goals.
The redistricting committee consist-
ed of Janice Mortimer, Sylvia Tatum,
Nancy Alvarez, Michael Chappell and
Sylviia Reddish.
The ball is now in the country com-
mission's court, so to speak. Currently
both boards share the same district
boundaries, and ideally that would not
change. The county commission could
agree that Plan B is the optimum choice

See DISTRICT page 6A


according to Supervisor of Elections
Terry Vaughan. That was, a Ilrimary
reason the county needed to deal with
redistricting and could not put it .off
again to the next census. .
Under plan B, the black and Hispanic-
population makes up 53.34 percent
of the district. Those groups make up
50.41 percent of the voting-age popu-
lation. i(Diltricts are typically based on
total population, not v:oting-age popula-
The plan also ensures the difference
.in population of the largest and small-
est of D~istricts 2 through 4F does not
exceed 10 percent. There is a reason
for the larger gap between District l's
population, which iii around 3,000, and
the other districts, which all have popu-
lations above 5,000. Vaughan said the
committee couldn't have made District
I any larger without diluting the minor-
ity population.
Unlike the; past, prisoner population
is not included in the population totals.

cific educational and experience
requirements to .become city
Roberts said they were looking
for someone to replace Thomp-
son, but ha~d Thomlpson applied
for the job, they wouldn't have
been able to consider his appli-
cation because of those require-
ments. He suggested the city
might want to advertise separate-
ly for someone capable of taking
over utilities.
Commissioner Tommy
Chastain asked if the others
would be willing to do that, but
also readvertise the city manager
post eliminating the requirement
for management experience and
seeing if more people apply.
"Ricky's worn multiple hats,
and to find someone like that is -
almost impossible. That shows in
the number of applicants we got,"
Chastain said. Looking back at
the managers who met the or- ,
dinance requirements, Chastain
said they didn't last very long.
He said someone "homegrown"
would put' his or her heart into
the job.
Spooner said five years of ex-
. perience was not a lot to ask for
and the city should not relax the
"You want somebody who has
some really good strong munici-
pal training," she said..
Chastai n's city manager would

be an office-based manager who
oversaw budget and planning
with someone working beneath
him to oversee utilities, he said.
That is the arrangement Starke
had under its prior city managers
when Thompson was the city's
Project director.
Woods pointed out that the
city had just eliminated the posi-
tion of project director because
it couldn't afford two positions,
but he agreed with Chastain that
if the board changes its qualifi-
cations, then the position should
be advertised again so other ap-
plicants who might not have ap-
plied before are given a chance.
City Clerk Linda Johns said
the commission doesn't have
money in the budget for two po-
sitions right now, so it wouldn't
be able to hire both managers at
once. Similarly, Roberts said to
find one individual with all of the
education and experience the city
desired, the commission would
have to raise its salary cap from
Roberts said the city's para-
mount need is to replace Thomp-
son's utility and other operations
experience, so the city might
want to advertise and fill, that po- ~
sition first, then go out for a city
manager later.
Waters agreed what the city
most needed was an operations
manager, and Chastain, who

Regio~na[~'l.\e~ Sports Editor
As a veterinarian, Linda
Kicker was often responsible
:for helping maintain life, but
though her charges now are
riot covered with fur, she still
finds that she is responsible for
Slife--albeit in a different
way--in her new position as
biology teacher at Bradford
I.High School.
"Here, I get to role model
rfor life," Ricker said. "I get td
show by example."
Kicker, who owns Bradford
;Pet Care Hospital in Starke
With her husband, Mike, once
taught biology in the public
school system in Hillsborough
County before she went to
veterinary school. She wasn't
actively looking to return to
the classroom, but sometimes
life creates an. opportunity
when you least~expect it.
It began with a trip to the
Bradford High School media
center. Kicker was taking her
daughter' Rachel, a freshman,
to a band meeting and was
interested in volunteering to
help the band program.
"Once I was inside (the
media center), the band
volunteers seemed to be up
and running and pretty
organized," Ricker said. "I
didn't feel they needed _an
extra person, ;
"I was sitting in the media
center, and (assistant principal
Chad) Farnsworth was there. I
askbd him if he needed help
with the science fair this year
because I had volunteered in
the past. He said he needed a
biology teacher, and I could
start -the application process
the next day." .
Kicker said she talked the
prospect of teaching over with
her husband. Bradford Pet
Care Hospital, which she and
her husband built from a
housecalfjnlraTReE was on fim

'His students were arguing
about it, so he thought he
could clarify it by asking me,"
Kicker said. 'I wvas
dumbfounded because they
had reclassified the platypus
into monotremes (egg-laying
mammals) .
Platypus questions .asidei,
Kicker has enjoyed her
relationship with her fellow
science teachers--a group
defined by hard work and
cooperation.. Teachers will
share ideas on what proved to
be a successful tool or
assignment in their classes,
while putting mn long hours in
preparing for assignments and
labs. It's not unusual to find
the teachers at the school after
dark, Ricker said.
The investment of their
personal time without
receiving compensation for it
has made quite an impression.
"It's really humbling to see
that," Ricker said.

Though a new teacher in the
Bradford County school
system, Ricker is no stranger
to many of her students. If they
don't know her from career
days, they know her because
she treats their family pets.
Therefore, it's not uncommon
for students to ask Ricker pet-
and veteninary-related
However, it's Ricker's job to
keep the students focused on
their classwork. They will
have their chance to talk about
pets and what she and her
husband do.
"We're going to have a
special day 'dedicated to
veterinary medicine and have
Dr. Mike come in and show X-
rays," Ricker said. "I keep
telling them, 'Let's save it for
the day we discuss veterinary

footing, so it was agreed that
she could go into the
classroom without the practice

"My husband encouraged
me because he knows how
much I enjoy teaching," Ricker
said. "He saw that part of me
that really missed it. I was
having staff meetings every
week where we taught new
lessons. He saw that I really
thrived in that environment.
"It was one of those
moments that I couldn't
believe was being offered, and
when I examined all the parts
of my life, it was a go."
Some 20 years had passed
since Ricker last taught in a
classroom setting, yet she had
continued to teach in some
aspect as she and her husband
were establishing their
veterinary practice. She has
mentored and worked
alongside college students at
her practice, participated in
career days at the public
schools and taught in the
College for Kids program
through Santa Fe College.
"'I never really got away
from- it," Ricker said of
teaching. "I just got outside the
classroom and into the field."
There have been changes,
though, over those 20 years
that Ricker has had to adjust
to. The biggest challenge has
been using a computer to do
such things as take roll or
maintain her grade book.
"I'm currently taking a class
at Santa Fe to update my
computer skills," Ricker said.
A change has also taken
place in regard to the approach
of teaching.
challenges Em having is I'mth ig
being educated here that
research shows that lecture is
the least effective way for
students to learn," Ricker said.

Starke veterinarian Linda Ricker (right) helps student Brenton Rulse with a
microscope slide. Kicker is in her first year of teaching biology at Bradford High
School after last teaching approximately 20 years ago in HIIlsborough County.

Greg Marshall have been
supportive as well.
"They are a phenomenal
group that has never once said,
'You don't know this, and
you're a veterinarian?' I think
I shocked them how behind I
was on the computer," Ificker
'said, "but they have never
openly made me feel bad."
Well, there was that one
time Marshall kind of
embarrassed Ricker by putting
her on the spot when it came to
a debate~ on the platypus and
what belonged

"That's new to me. I've had to
engage students with more
activities. Science lends itself
to a lot of lab work, but even
so, traditionally I had always
provided lecture with lab.
"What we're being asked to
do is come up with new ways
to engage students without
lecture notes, to have more
student-generated activities.
That was a new trend for me." '

Reading coach Donna Tew
has been a big help as far as
getting Ricker acclimated to a

different style of teaching.
English teacher Raymond
Schaefer, who has been
assigned to her as a mentor,
Shas been a big help as well,
Ricker said. Schaefer has
taught her how to prepare
lesson plans in accordance to
state standards and how' to
prepare assignments the
students view as having some

Trinity Episcopal Church last
Saturday tells the more famous
of the stories about Nicholas, the
story of the villager who had once
peen rich but had fallen upon
hard times. The man had three
daughters, but no money for their
dowries. Since they would attract
no husbands, his daughters were
destined to be sold into senritude
or prostitution.
Hearing of the poor nman's
plight, St. Nicholas passed by the
man's house on the night the first

open window which landed in
the girl's stocking, hung over the
fireplace to dry. Other versions
say it fell into her shoe.
When the second daughter was

When the third daughter was.

to stay up all night to see who

Financial Aid available to qualified students!!

no effort shown by any of the
towns and cities to find us some
On top of the fact that none of
the towns and cities trying to
find some relief, they want to
gouge us more with traffic tick-
ets. Even though Lawtey and
Starke are bad, the small town of
Hampton is by far the worst.
The city vultures there were so
obvious in their efforts to rip off
the unwary traveler, that they
incorporated about 200 yards of
U.S. 301 into the town limits for
the sole reason of collecting
traffic fines from travelers
Now anyone who wants us to
believe that safety and commu-
nity welfare were the motiva-
tional factors in doing this is
nuts. There is a traffic light and
a gas station at that location and
nothing else, except a marked
car, and sometimes an unmarked
car, hidden behind a garbage
disposal container--and a po-

liceman using a radar gunjl
which may or may not be certic
fled, and the officer may or mayj
not be qualified.
Hampton collected $270,000'
last year. They have taken in sb
much money that they bought
three cars and two motorcycles
and hired God knows how many
policemen. On most days, one'
would see two policemen stop-~
ping traffic. I believe that they:
are outdoing Lawtey with the
number of men who are on the
road at any one time and Lawtey
can justify theirs at least when
school is in session,
The Hampton situation should
be monitored by the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-,
ment and the Attorney General'd
Office and the unscrupulous
people.,involved taken before a
grand jury.

Upset about
desecration of
SAmerican flag
DerEdi :
D n Notor30 at 5:30 p.m. at the
Sn Fe Colleg Andrew Cen
ter, I witnessed a blatant dese-
cration he American fag.t
At the a rementioned ime
the security guard for the An-
drews Cen er came out and pro-
ceede to t fagpo e.
He started the process of tak-
ilg downi the flags for the night.
O~n this pole are three flags. At
the bottom is what I can only
assume is a flag for the college,
ini the middle the state flag of
Lclorida and, of course, on top
the Stars and S rpted heroe

from the anchor bracket and
started to bring down the flags
stopping at each one to unhook
them. First, the college flag
which he let fall to the ground
around his feet, seci~nd, the state
flag with the same result, falling
to the ground along with the
first. Then what happened next I
jould not believe. He unhooked
the bottom clip off Old Glory
isnd without so much as an at-
fempt to catch hold of it or drape
it across his arm, just like the
tw'o previous flags, right to the
grotind it went.
I was sitting in my car on the
east side of the parking lot next
to the wall of the building. Be-
fore he could unhook the -top
hook I was over there. When I
~pulled up, he stopped what he
Iwas -doing and I asked him what
in sam hill did he think he was
doing? He stared at me like a

I said, "You deliberately let

Disposed of and said that it was
;not to be flown anymore since
jhe had desecrated it. He contin-
.ued to deny what I saw with my
:own eyes, which made me even
more livid.
By this time, a woman had
come out of the building and
was watching the exchange. It
lasted a couple more minutes.
Then I returned to my parking
spot. The guard and the woman
stood .there talking and looking
my wa~y for a bit and then went
jup thie stairs and turned anid
Looked my way again. I could

and said, "You are a piece of
work." He said again I could not
argue with that guard. I said,
"The Constitution gives me that
right,"' and he said, "I have the
right to take you to jail if you
don't leave now." I told him the
Constitution also gives me the
right to defend and protect the
flag anyplace, anytime and any-
way I see fit. I did not get the
names of either one of them but
the cop drives patrol car #10.
First of all,'that is a state facil.

don't think they can ban me
from there and, if they can, I

I would like to get .in touch

As*I watched each young per-

H-ead coach Traavis Chandler

night seemed to take a toll on
his team.
"We left it all at Santa Fe,"
he said.
Brian Walton continued his
strong play, making four 3-

Tornadoes with 21 points. The
next highest scorer for
Bradford, though, had only
