Farm Family
of the Year:
Ted and Jean

Ted and Jean Waters were
both born 60 years ago and only
three days apart. Ted was born
at home in a small, wooden
framed house on his parent's
farm while Jean was born at
Alachua General Hospital in
Little did anyone know
that later that day, Ted would
be taken to that very same
hospital and the two would
share the same nursery that
night.. Technically, one can say
they've, been together since
Ted and Jean both grew up
in Union County, graduated
from Uhion County High
School, then began their lives
together as a married couple
on July 5, 1968. During their
40-year marriage, they raised
two children, Lisa Underhill
and Paul Waters, on the family
farm. They are members of
the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter Day Saints.
Ted is the son of L.V. and
Georgia Waters and he has 11
brothers and sisters. Jean is the
daughter of Evelyn Hodges and
the late Herman Hodges. She
has one sister.
The Waters family farm
consists of cattle, horses,
timber and hay. To continue
the tradition of hard work, they
still have a family sausage-
making day and encourage
all their friends and family to
take-part especially ithe three'
grandchildren: Lane, Timber
and Baler.

The couple .firmly believe
that working together as a
family helps them understand
and appreciate the value of
hard work and it is also good,
family fun.
Ted has been employed with
Interstate Supply in Lake City
for the past 32 years. Jean
was with the school system
for 12 years and is now a
dedicated homemaker and
devoted grandmother who
spends time each day with her
S.The couple. enjoy going
to ballgames, bike riding,
traveling and getting together

with family and friends.
Most of their spare time has
been spent working on their
second home, which Ted has
affectionately named the "Work
Camp." It really seems to be a
true work camp with the daily
upkeep' that is required for the
yard, land and home.
They look forward to the
retirement years where they
can grow old together and truly
appreciate being selected as the
Union .Count- Farm Famil of
the Year.

Commissioners seek

answers on library,

recreation complex


Times Staff Writer
To receive answers to a few
questions regarding ongoing
construction projects, an
emergency meeting of the
Union County Board of County
Commissioners took place on
Dec. 1. However, by the time it
was over, many left the meeting
more confused than they were
Detailed responses were
provided to board member
questions, but why a change
order on the new public library
building was performed without
prior board authorization, why
the project was currently near
$291,000 in deficit or why the
recreation complex was eight
months past the completion
date causing a loss in grant
funds and why vendors were
paid without completing the job
were only a game of passing
the blame.
It all got started last Tuesday
just before everyone shut down
for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Richard Tillis, contractor for
the new Union County public
Library building, left a file
containing two change orders
with the board secretary to be
signed by new Chairman Karen
Reviewing the change
orders, Cossey said she was not
comfortable just signing them
without input from the board
and letting them know about
the changes.
The board chairman has the
authorization to approve any
change orders that amount
to less than $10,000 without


.approval of the board, but what
first struck Cossey was that a
change order in the amount of
$18,806 had been signed by
former board chairman Wayne
Smith, yet as a board member,
Cossey was never told about
the change. Board members
present at the meeting with
Cossey, which included Ricky
Jenkins, Morris Dobbs and
new member Jimmy Tallman,
said they had no recollection
of the nearly $19,000 change
order being previously brought
before the board. Smith was
unable to attend the emergency
meeting, so his authorization
of the change could not be
explained. However, it is quite
possible that in acting as the
former chairman, he signed
the change order to keep the
job from stalling, intending to
bring it up at the next meeting,
but recent bouts of illness have
caused a number of absences
at meetings and it was, quite
possibly, mistakenly forgotten.
"This is perhaps an
unfortunate oversight," Cossey
said, "but nonetheless, the
board wants to know why the
change order was necessary."
Tillis offered that it was an
engineering flaw that required
an existing Florida Power and
Light pole to be relocated.
Why this was not realized
prior to construction was not
clear. A call to Tillis' office
the day after the meeting was
not returned to provide a more
detailed explanation.
"We've got an $18,000
change order that nobody's
accountable for and who's to
say there won't be a bunch more

of these?" asked Commissioner
The original contract amount
for the library totaled $869,403
and when adding the change
order signed by Smith, the new
contract amount went up to
One change order given
to Cossey to sign actually
decreased the amount of the
original contract amount by
$84,481. The change was a
collective detail of direct buy
purchases of materials made by
the county, a tax-exempt entity,
to save money by avoiding the
seven 'percent sales tax that
would have been required by
.law to be paid if the materials
had been purchased directly by
the contractor (Tillis).
The sales tax savings to
the county for purchasing the
materials amounted to a total
cost savings- of $5,147, but
board members questions if the
advantage was actually going
to reduce the amount of their
state library grant.
Board member and
finance department concerns
surrounded the reduction in the
contract amount, something
that is likely to come up again
now that inmate laborers are
on the job. Using the inmate
laborers, for example, offers
a huge decrease in the real
cost to build the library, same
as the county directly buying
materials to save the sales tax
Each time a construction
grant draw is submitted to the
state, it must show the actual

performed and that amount is
reimbursed with grant funds.
So, in other words, if less
money is spent, less is
reimbursed by the state and a
$500,000 grant may not be a
$500,000 grant after all.
Outside of the state grant,
Brown said the existing library
building was sold giving them
a $246,000 gain. In addition,
Library Director Mary Brown
said she has raised roughly
$70,000 to date in fundraisers.
"There's still bitofa shortfall.
We will continue to fundraise
until this is paid off, maybe
a bit beyond after we open,"
said Brown. Unfortunately, her
greatest fundraising efforts are
exhausted on $5 dinner plates
that can only do so much in
this small county with a library
project deficit already reaching
A current breakdown of
revenues and expenditures on
the project shows revenues
amounting to $387,148, which
includes the sale of the existing
building to First Christian
Church in the amount of.
$250,001 and a house sold for
$56,000 that once stood on the
new library property, a grant
from Plum Creek for $10,000
and various other contributions
to the building fund.
A large amount of
expenditures to date are not
covered in' the construction
contract amounting to $297,079.
Those costs include architect,
engineering, consulting and
surveying fees for $118,845
and monthly land purchase loan
payments made since May 2005
totaling $125,536. Another
$51,371 in loan payments will
extend through April 2011.
Expenses covered under the
contract total $284,798, and are
made up of $182,449 paid to
Richard 0. Tillis Contracting
for project manager fees and
constructioniTcosts and another
$102,349 paid for direct buy
purchases by the county.
The job is under 50 percent
Adding to all the confusion
is a third change order given
to Cossey for an additional
$4,500 in costs, a change that
was made on the job without

anyone with the county and just
made the change anyway.

there are some real dead spots
in areas of the library."
Those areas that Tillis.
said would not be viewable
from the library service desk
are what he described as the
teenage area and the area where
the book drop is going to be.
Cossey asked, "And has this
work in the change ordered
already been done?"
Tillis said that the wiring
work inside the wall for the
security equipment installation
had been completed and that
cost was about $1,800.
"See, my problem here is that
should come before this board
before any work is done," the
chairman said. "We can always
call an emergency meeting like
we did today."
Tillis said he agreed, but
in the past, former chairman
Smith had authority to sign
the change orders to keep the
project moving.
"While I'm the chairman, the
board is going to know what is
going on at all times," Cossey
Tillis replied by saying, "I
just want to caution you that
when these things come up,
we will immediately make you
aware of what's needed and we
would encourage some action
in the way of rapid succession
or we end up putting our project
back a number of weeks."
The chairman was adamant
when she said, "When the
public comes to us and wants
to know what is going on .with
the library or the concession
stand and we don't know, that
makes all of us look kind of
stupid and I do not want that to
happen anymore."
Brown apologized saying it
was not her intention to keep
the board uninformed.
"As far as the security issue
goes, my end of that decision
was that if I could not provide
some kind of security in that
area, I would have to hire
another person to work on that
side of the library, so in the
long term for the library, it
would have been much more
expensive," Brown said.
Tillis offered to begin doing
a weekly email update to board
members to let them know
what was going on and who
was working on the job.
"We are almost halfway
through and dead on schedule,"
Tillis said. He estimates the
library completion date to be
the end of February or early
. _Cossey said. "Right no%%, %e
[the count)] still one $290,000
after everything is said and
done and I can't stress to you
enough that we cannot go over
the $888,000 contract price."
Mary agreed. That's our
guaranteed maximum price and
I can tell you that to build this
facility for under $900,000 is
an amazing feat and now that
we are starting to use inmate
labor that's going to go down
even more," she said. "If we go
'over, it's on him," she added,
meaning Tillis.
Tillis said the only thing
that would change that is an
addition... something that was
over and above the original
contract price.
"Such as this $18,000.change
order," Tallman said.

projects will be recommended for
awarded at the Board of Directors

submit a bid for the projects as
described below.

"What's to say that we're
not going to have a lot more of

for this except for FPL and I
personally can't accept that at
all. You made yourself clear
that it was FPL's fault. An

Tillis answered that if he
had known about the problem
before bid time, that cost would
have been included already.
"I'm concerned about
the other unforeseen change,
orders," said Tallman.
"At this point, I don't see
a whole lot of that. You can't
build a building this size and
not have some unforeseen
items," Tillis said. --
Union County Finance
Director Donna Jackson
questioned why three
construction management fees
totaling $17,499 paid to Tillis
were not reflected as being
paid as being paid on the draw
Tillis said those payments
were made during the planning
stage and the $500,000
grantl is strictly construction
and not earlier cost prior to
Quoting from Tillis'
management fee draw schedule,
Jackson showed the payments
had, in fact, been made during
the actual construction phase.
"How much is that?" Tillis
asked. "We made three of those
$5,833 monthly payments to
you and they should be reflected
on here," Jackson said.
"Yes, that's true," said Tillis.
Being left with little choice,
Cossey addressed the board
members and asked if they
wanted her to sign off on the
change orders, and it was
unanimously approved for her
to sign.
At that time, Brown asked if
she could interject a question.
She wanted to know if her
hands were going to be tied
when she tries to get purchase
orders for furniture and other
items for the library in the
future because she was in the
process of working on a grant
to furnish the library.
"I'm waiting to hear on a
couple of plans and I wrote
a grant to Suwannee Valley
Community Foundation in an
effort to outfit our young adult
and children's area," Brown
Saying it was going to cost
around $12,000 to outfit the
areas with what she had picked
out,,.she originally wrote the
grantfor $5,000b but Suwanniee
Valley asked her to bump it
up to $6,000 since it was a
matching grant and would
better meet her expenses.
Cossey asked Brown where
she was planning on getting the
matching funds from.
"I told them we would work
on cutting those costs... I feel
there is a couple two thousand
we can trim down. In addition,
we are going to be receiving a
couple thousand dollars from
the Rotary," Brown said.
"We need to put that on the
building," Cossey said.
"But we can't, it's furniture
money," said Brown.
The conversation was cut off
when county attorney Hal Airth
told Brown those grants would

by the board.
"To accept the money?" she
Airth replied, "To accept
the grant, yes-particularly if
it's a matching grant. And the
other thing is, this is a special
meeting to deal with change
orders on the contract and
anything else is not appropriate
to be discussed right now and is
out of order."
Next on the agenda, Tallman
gave a gloomy look into the
situation at .the recreation
complex, a construction job
where Tillis, as owner of R
& D Consulting Services was
paid $ $11,025 to oversee the
construction addition project.
The grant amount of $200,000
was reduced by nearly $16,000
because the project was not
completed by the deadline date
of April 30, 2008. Tallman
called off a long list of items yet
to be completed, eight months
after the deadline date. The
project already has a deficit
of $27,540, and, among other
things, a new cabinet contractor
needed to be located because
the prior subcontractor, North
Florida Kitchens and Bath, was
paid $5,800 for cabinets and
countertops that were never
Board members asked
Tallman to further seek out all
estimated costs to complete
the entire project and tabled
the item until the next county

Regional News
News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region area

Former journalist, Melrose resident Burt dies at 81

Telegraph Staff Writer
.He traveled extensively
throughout the Western
Hemisphere, but it was his
travels throughout Florida he
loved the most. Florida was
home, and there was perhaps
no place as dear to his heart as
Al Burt, a former journalist,
columnist and editor for the
Miami Herald, and a Metrese-_
resident for more than 30
years, died Nov. 29 in
Jacksonville at the age of 81.
Burt chronicled the state for
Herald readers as the
newspaper's Florida
columnist. As such, he sought
a place to live that would make
sense as he traveled throughout
the state. Melrose provided the
central location he was looking
for, but the area had more
going for it than that. Burt, in a
1996 interview published in
the Bradford County
Telegraph, Lake Region
Monitor and Union County
Times, said he had fond
memories of the area from his
time as a student at the
University of Florida.
"This is the first area I
thought about," Burt said of
choosing a place to live. "I
liked it a lot and felt it was a
nice place to live."
Burt contributed to the

Melrose community in several
ways, such as serving on the
boards of the public library
and Historic Melrose Inc. Burt
was a charter member of
Historic Melrose and served as
that organization's president
on a couple of occasions.
Mobility proved to be more
and more difficult as Burt got
older due to injuries he
sustained after being shot in
1965 while covering a civil.
war-in-the-Dominca.n Republic
for the Miami Herald. Stiltff, e
always volunteered to do
whatever he could to help out
Historic Melrose, according to
fellow member Rosemary
Dauer. That included
designing programs for events
on his computer and writing
press releases.
"Whatever he could do, he
would do," Dauer said.
Burt was eventually
confined to a wheelchair.
Dauer said that, along with the
health of his wife, G.loria,
forced Burt to move to
Jacksonville not that long ago
at the advice of his brother.
The move was so that Burt
could receive convenient care.
Dauer said Burt, in a letter he

"We're sure going to miss
him," Dauer said.
Burt, who began his career
as a sports journalist, had no
problem leaving the hustle and
bustle of south Florida behind
for what he described in a
2004 Telegraph, Monitor,
Times story as a tranquil life
on a Melrose lake. One of his
joys, he said, was watching
new people on the lake
succumb to the tranquility.
-Those- people, when they first
moved on the lake, felt the
need to constantly be out on
the water, either boating or

A ,

windsurfing, Burt said.
"After they live here for
about six months, or maybe a
year, they quiet down," Burt
'said. "It's very interesting how
the area tranquilizes them."
Burt's journalism career
spanned almost 50 years. He
began working for the
Jacksonville Journal part-time
as a student at UF. After
graduation, he went to work
for United Press in'Atlanta in
1950. He then worked for the
Atlanta Journal (1951-52) and
-the Jacksonville Journal again
(1952-55) before taking a job
with the.Herald in 1955.

At the Herald, Burt worked
his way up to the position of
assistant executive sports
editor, which was followed by
stints as chief of *Broward
bureaus, night city editor, city
editor and editor of the Latin
America department. Burt was
able to travel throughout Latin
America as a result of. the latter
position, but was eventually
injured in the 1965 Dominican
Republic incident.
, Burt, along with Herald
photographer Doug kennedy,
approached a U.S. Marines
barricade.- in the Dominican
Republic in a rental car. Burt

had approached the same
barricade the day before .and
had no problems, but on this
day, Marines opened fire on
the car. Burt, sitting in the
back seat, was struck nine
"I had no doubt that I was
going to die," Burt told the
Telegraph, Monitor and Times
in 1996. "It was just a matter
of waiting for the bullet to hit
me in the head."
Burt did not die, but he went
back to Miami after the
incident and worked as a

Former point guard takes reins of Keystone program

Telegraph Staff Writer
Keystone Heights High
School enjoyed a level of
success in girls' basketball
under longtime coach Kathy
Boatwright that has not been
equaled since her retirement in
2000. Now, a KHHS graduate
who played for Boatwright
takes the reigns of the varsity

Jessica Carter can still

program, hoping to help the
Indians enjoy success on a
more consistent basis and,
maybe, create an atmosphere
surrounding the program that
once existed under Boatwright.
It remains to be seen if
Jessica Dykes Carter, a 1995
KHHS graduate, can lead the
Indians to such success, but
people have noticed
similarities between her and
"People say I coach a lot like
her, actually," Carter said,
laughing. "I stomp and kick
and yell."
Boatwright won 17 district
championships, earned eight
Final-Four berths and won
three state championships at
Keystone. Carter, the team's
sixth coach since Boatwright
retired, would welcome those
kinds of numbers, but more
than anything, she would like
to see the community become
an important part of the
program again.
Carter remembers being able
to go out into the community
as a teenager and recognizing
faces of people who helped
pack the old Anthony
Gymnasium and cheer the:
Indians on. She would like to.~
fill the stands again and have*
the tremendous community .
support the program once had.

However, community
involvement is a two-way
street. Carter wants her players
to become involved as well-
to be more than simply
basketball players or teenagers
in high school.
"I want the community to
come back out and support
these girls and to bring these
girls into the community "
Carter said. "We're trying to
figure out something we can
do to go out and help the
Of course Carter, who
teaches sixth-grade social
studies, reading and language
arts at Keystone Elementary
School, wants to win games as
well. It's not that the Indians
have not had success since
Boatwright's retirement. The
team has qualified for the
regional playoffs five times,
but only has one playoff win.
Also, the Indians have- won
just one district championship

brought back the "baselines."
That is, a drill in which the
players run from baseline to
baseline for a set amount of
time. Her players don't think
much of that drill, but Carter
said when she played, she and
her teammates didn't care
much for it, either.
Making the players work
hard and being firm with
them-they are traits Carter
picked up from Boatwright.
"She worked us hard, but
you always knew she cared,"
Carter said. "I can get on these
girls, I can yell at them and get
in their face, but I hope they
/ realize I do still care for them."
Carter experienced
Boatwright's toughness at an
early age. In fact, Carter
remembers taking part in
Boatwright's YBA program
when she was in fourth grade.
"She told her husband I was
... going to be her starting point
guard on varsity," Carter said.
Boatwright's husband at the

going to have to do some

After graduating from
Keystone, Carter continued to
play basketball at Warner
University in Lake Wales.
"It's what some people
dream of doing, but they don't
get the opportunity," Carter
said. "To get that opportunity
was just great for me. That's
one reason why I want to
coach at this level. I want these
girls to have that experience I
was able to have. If they want
to go somewhere and play, I
want to help them."
Carter coached at several
places after, graduating from
Warner, such as in Frostproof
and at a junior college in
Alabama. Like playing
basketball in college, it was
another dream come true.
"Ever since I was little, I
wanted to teach and I wanted
,to coach," Carter said. "I never
thought I'd get the opportunity
to coach varsity back in my
hometown. That's just an
added bonus to a dream that
I've had."
The joke, now that Carter is
the Keystone head coach, is
that her husband of five years,
Neil Carter, gets to go fishing
and do whatever he wants to.
He refers to basketball season
as the couple's "annual
In all seriousness, Carter
said she told her husband that
her role as the varsity head
coach would consume a lot of
her time, but no one has been
more supportive of her than
her husband.
"He sits right behind my
bench," Carter said. "He's
.right there with me. He yells
just as loud as 1 do."
Carter admits that having the
chance to coach at the
collegiate level is an appeal,
but for now, she's happy in
Keystone. She said it would be
great if she could have a tenure
like Boatwright.

championships like Boatwright
did, Carter admitted Keystone
faces some obstacles. Unlike
when she played, the school
now offers 'other girls' sports,
such as soccer. The soccer
season coincides with
basketball season, so a player
can't play both.
It's an issue larger schools
don't have to deal with, Carter
said. However, Carter looks at
the situation as a positive in
that the girls who do choose to
play basketball do so because
they really want to.
"Athletes are spread thin
(here)," she said, "but you get
the girls who want to be here."
Dedication is an important
component for a successful
team. Carter recalled how she
and her Keystone teammates
grew up doing nothing but
playing basketball together.
Carter said she could close her
eyes and know where each of
her teammates was going to be
on the floor at any given time.
"When I first started with
the junior high team, that's one
thing- I really put in their
minds," Carter said. "This is
where you start. You can't
start at the varsity level and
expect to win state." .
It takes a group of players
willing to start doing what. it
takes at an early age. The fact
that Carter is now coaching

many of the same players she
coached in junior high speaks
volumes of the dedication of
this year's varsity players. It
may not equate to a trip to the
state tournament for this year's
team, but this group of players
could very well establish a
foundation for future teams
through example.
"They're really good with
me," Carter said. "They know
what to do."

Lewis "Cowboy" and

Keystone Heights, FL m
Two and a half years
ago, Fortune Hi-Tech a
Marketing chlifigeU my
mind about what you
have to do to earn a lot .
of money. What we
were taught 50 years
ago, to get a good
education and a good
job and you'll do fine,
is not necessarily true.
FHTM has been a blessing, and we get paid for introducing products that people use
every day to our friends and family and then teaching other people how to do the same
thing. That helps other people make money for their families, as well. It has allowed
Sme.to do the things that people like me, a broke, old dairy farmer, aren't supposed to be
able to do. Financial success doesn't change anyone; it brings out the people who were
there already, and this opportunity has allowed me to give more to my church and do
more for my family. The greatest accomplishment in this business is the freedom to
choose. I choose what time I get up in the morning. And when I do wake up, I choose if
I would rather go to work or go fishing. The biggest rewardwe've reaped is the stack
of thank-you notes from people all over the country who are thankful we introduced
them to this opportunity.
