Larramore named principal of middle school


BY LINDSEY XIRKLAND
Times Editor
At its July 10 meeting, the
Union County School Board
voted 4-0 to appoint Russell
Larramore as principal at Lake
Butler Middle School. (Board
member Sandra Floyd was
absent from the meeting.)
The school was left looking
for a principal for LBMS when
Mark Bracewell resigned
recently to take a job with the
North East Florida Educational
Consortium.
Larramore has a long history
in the education field.
He came to Union County as
a math teacher at Union
County High School in 2001.


After his first year, he was
given the job of assistant
principal at UCHS, where he
served until being named as
LBMS principal.
Even before he came to this
school district, though,
Larramore spent time in,
Bradford and Baker counties.
He spent many years as a
math teacher at Bradford
Middle School before earning
the job as superintendent of
schools.
After four years leading the
Bradford County School
District, Larramore taught
history in Baker County for
one year before deciding to
come to Union County.


Charter, council set in

Worthington election--


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
In the recent Worthington
Springs election, candidates
and voters were hard to come
by.
Only six people qualified for
the July 17 election, resulting
in the five-member council and
the mayor.
Jeff Rimes, John Rimes III
and Robert Benson will keep
their seats on the council, as
they were uncontested.
In seats 1 and 3, incumbents
Marvin Seay and Dwight
Seay-who had not attended
any town meetings in quite
some time-did not seek re-
election.
Residents Loye W. Holton
and Joan Douglas were the
only two to qualify for those
seats. Therefore, they
automatically became the two
remaining members of the
Worthington Springs Town
Council.
- Jimmy Cason will remain as
the mayor.
Of the 182 registered voters
in Worthington Springs, only
48 ballots were cast on the
issue of amending and revising
the town charter. This is only a
26-percent voter turnout.
Only 35 voters showed up at
the polls in Worthington
Springs, with 13 casting their
votes by absentee ballots.
The charter revision was
approved with 28 votes, or 58
percent.
By approving the revised
charter, voters extended term
limits for the council
members-from two to four
years-and how they are


elected.
Before the election,
Worthington Springs used the
plurality method, Where all
candidates were put on the
ballot and the five. highest
would be elected to the
council.
According to the revised
charter, candidates will now
have to select a council seat
number. The highest vote
getter out of the candidates for
seat 1, for example, would take
that seat.
Before the charter revision,
the council members earned no
salary and were not eligible to
earn a salary.
A provision in the charter
has made it possible for the
council members to either
serve without a salary or to
earn a salary.
Council president John
Rimes said the town of
Worthington Springs is not
able to pay the council
members at this time. If it
becomes financially feasible to
do so in the future, it would be
considered at that time.
Outdated language, such as
wording that referred to; a town
jail, court and other facilities
that no longer exist, was also
taken out of the charter. It had
not been revised since the
original. Worthington charter
was approved by the state
Legislature in 1961, and then
again in 1965, when the town
was named Worthington
Springs.
The new council will hold
its first regular meeting on
Tuesday, Aug. 7, at 7:30 p.m.


Only in his principal
position for about a week nov,
Larramore said he already
knows there will be challenges
he has to face.
"I have it all to oversee
rather than just a section of it,"
he said, comparing his last job
with his new assignment.
"My focus will be broader. I
will be held accountable for all
of it."
With a great emphasis
placed on FCAT testing,
school grades and student and
,teacher i performance,
Larramore said he will do what
he can to help stu e.ts and
staff succeed.
His approach to faculty and
staff, he said, will be to
support them in what he and
the district feel needs to be
done.
"I back off and let them do
their jobs," he said.
As cor students, he said, "I'm
an advocate for the students."
Whatever it ,takes for
students to succeed, Larramore
said he will try to make that


environment a reality.
"We're here for the students
to learn," he said. "Sometimes
that takes tough love."
If students know an
administrator or teacher cares,
Larramore said he feels they
will do better in school.
Larramore said he is looking
forward to putting his t~ull
focus at the middle school as
he makes the final transition
into his office at LBMS.
He did seemed relieved that
he would not have to keep up
the constant watch for the
number of credits a student has
to graduate, like he had to do
at the high school level.
Even so, he's not totally
leaving UCHS behind.
"We would like to partner
with the high school," he said,
"to create a better transition
from the middle school."
He said he is already
working with UCHS Principal
Alex Nelson to create a
program that can begin at the
middle level to better prepare
students for high school.

Russell Larramore
When asked how he first
made the transition from
teaching to administration,
Larramore said, "I was asked if
I wanted to do it, and I said,
'Yes.'"
"They thought I had
something to offer."
Now, he will take that same
'something' to his job at
LBMS.

Real estate business aims to ease home buying process


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
In the ever-changing world
of mortgages, closing costs,
down payments, property
taxes, homeowner's insurance,
financing and other confusing
terminology, the home buying
process may seem
overwhelming-especially for
first-time home buyers.
ERA Realty, which recently
opened a branch office next to
the S&S in Lake Butler, tried
to clarify the process for
people recently in a free
workshop.
The workshop was open to
the whole community to
inform people about what it
really takes to own a home.
Scott Bennett, a mortgage
loan officer for SunTrust
Mortgage of Lake City, said at
the workshop that helping the
public was the motivation
behind the event.
"The big idea was to educate
consumers," he said.
The mainstream media and
constant housing and lending
commercials send mixed
messages about the housing


industry, Bennett said.
"People see negative stuff
about housing prices."
With that said, Bennett said
home ownership can be open
to a wide variety of people if
they know what to look for.
That's why Bennett and his
SunTrust team and those from
ERA covered topics such as
finding the right home, how to
fill out mortgage applications,
the availability of SHIP
funding, Florida Housing Bond
Program, down payment
assistance and other loans.
"One in 10 people don't
know what's out there,"
Bennett said of these
programs. "People in my own
office have told me, 'We just
never knew that was out
there.'"
Besides programs and
financing options available to
homebuyers, Realtor Chris
Stanley and others at ERA
helped consumers understand
their credit scores, provided
information on how to build
them up if they were low and
improving overall scores to
qualify for home mortgages.


Lake Butler resident Stanley
Young attended the event
because he said the process of
buying a home can be
"overwhelming" in some ways.
"I wanted to learn the
process of buying a home," he
said, even though he already
owns a home.
"Some of the people in my
church are trying to buy
homes," he said.
Finding out about new
programs, he said, will help
him help others in their
journey toward owning their
own home.
"You need to get all the
information you can," Young
said.
ERA and SunTrust
representatives said the
workshop was the first step in
trying to help out those in the
community.
"We're testing the waters
over here," Bennett said of the
workshops they already hold in
neighboring Columbia County.
If the public continues to
show interest in these types of
workshops, Stanley said ERA
could hold more in the future.

Deputies take part in electrifying training course


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Times Editor
No one ever said being a
sheriffs deputy was easy.
One prime example of this
was Monday night's Taser
training course for the Union
County Sheriffs Office.
Eight deputies went through
the four-hour course, which
involved real-life scenarios,
training video, reviewing
departmental Taser and use-of-
force policies, and actual use
of the Taser device-on the
deputies themselves.
Six of the deputies were
receiving re-certification, but
two had to volunteer to have
the Taser used on them as part
of the certification process.
Without certification,
deputies cannot carry a Taser.
Sheriff Jerry Whitehead has
said that using a Taser will
better serve public safety and
the safety of his deputies by
reducing the need for deadly
force and physical
confrontations.
The department's Taser
policy was put into effect in
May 2005 after consideration
of when, where, how, why and
on whom Taser devices should
be used.
I The policy lays out specific
examples of the usage of Taser
devices because it is a use-of-
force option.
According to Sgt. Ray
Shuford, who taught the course


as the department's certified
Taser instructor, a Taser is an
"electro-muscular disruption
weapon that disrupts the body's
ability to communicate
messages from the brain to the
muscles, causing temporary
motor skill dysfunction to a
subject."
Because a Taser is
considered a non-lethal use of
force, the devices can help
deputies diffuse verbally and
physically combative and non-
compliant suspects.
In the past, a firearm or
man-to-man confrontation
might have been the only
solution to these situations.
A Taser might seem like a
simple point-and-shoot device,
but the class gave deputies
several applications for its use.
A spark display is when the
end of the device releases
electricity but does not actually
make contact with a suspect.
"The purpose of the display
is to convince the subject to
comply with a lawful order
and avoid the Taser being
deployed," according to the
Union County Sheriffs Office
Taser policy.
The second method of Taser
use is the DriveStun, where the
front of the Taser is pressed
directly into the body of a
suspect. Shuford said this
method causes some pain, yet
it does not incapacitate the
person.


Taser! Taser! Taser! In the training course Monday, Goodwin, Ken Smith, Kevin Dice, James Crews,
deputies were instructed to yell out Taser three James "Goody" Goodwin, Donnie Jones and Lyn
times before using the weapon. Practicing drawing Williams.
the Taser from its holster are (r-1) Doug York, Mindy


The final use is the probe


Sgt. Ray Shuford (left) uses a Taser device for two seconds on James Goodwin
(center), while Donnie Jones (left) and Lyn Williams spot Goodwin.


Jones and Williams
again act as spotters,
but this time for Deputy
James Crews. Crews
demonstrated a typical
reaction of someone
who has just received a
shock from the
Taser-tightened
muscles that
temporarily
incapacitate the
subject.

end of the Taser. Once the
Taser is fired, probes, attached

Upon contact, the subject is

disrupted, causing muscles in
the body to contract.

Screening lowers risk, helps babies to have healthy start


BY RICK OPPENHEIM
Special to the Times
All babies deserve a healthy
start in life, but the unfortunate
reality is that too many babies
are at risk for health problems
before they are even born.
Many times, these risks can be
eliminated when the mom-to-
be receives some basic
education, guidance and
encouragement.
To ensure that possible risk
factors are considered,
expectant moms should ask
their doctor or nurse to
complete a Healthy Start
Prenatal Risk Screening form.
The form asks a series of
simple questions that allow
healthcare providers to identify
potential risks and link moms
to available services provided
through their local Healthy
Start coalition and community
resources.
Completing screening is
valuable for all mothers
regardless of age, race or
economic status. Risk factors
that could result in a pre-term
or low-birth-weight baby do
not discriminate, and
identifying them early enough
can make a significant


difference.
"It has been demonstrated
that if we can screen moms
early in their pregnancies, we
can measure the difference
made when we identify and
intervene with problems," said
Dr. Robert Yelverton, medical
director and CEO of Tampa
Bay Women's Care.
"The rates of complications,
including low-birth weights,
premature births, infant
mortality and stillbirths go
down. Prenatal care and
screening for high-risk moms
greatly reduces these
complications."
It certainly was worth it to
17-year-old Jewell McCray,
who was referred to Healthy
Start by her healthcare
provider after completing the
screening form, received a
variety of services and was
introduced to her Healthy Start
care coordinator, who had also
experienced motherhood as a
teenager.
"She gave me information
on different-job -offers, -day
cares, childbirth classes and
showed me where to go for car
-seats and cribs," McCray said.
"And once. in a while she


would drop by my house just
to talk. She.helped me figure
out what I should do-how to
go to school and raise a baby.
To tell you the truth, I can't
even imagine what I would be
doing if I didn't have Healthy
Start."
Yelverton suggests that all
moms request their healthcare
provider complete the Healthy
Start screen, regardless of their
social standing.
"Many women just feel that
they are not in the same
category as those who need
supportive services," he said.
"They have a private doctor
and they think he or she will
take care of everything for
them. The risk screen,
however, identifies things
about the mom's health,
pregnancy and environment
that the doctor may need to
know about, but might not
ask."
Alicia Hendrix was one such
mom. After completing the
prenatal screen at her
-obstetrieian'-s-offitce,-hei ever
expected to hear anything
about it again. After all, she
thought, she and her husband
had a pretty decent combined


income and Healthy Start was
for low-income women.
But her completed screening
form pointed out that she had
an existing medical condition
that increased the chance of a
low-birth-weight baby, which
triggered the referral by her
provider to a Healthy Start
care coordinator.
"I really didn't know
anything about Healthy Start,
but it sounded like a Medicaid
program to me, and I just
thought we made too much
money to qualify," said the 31-
year-old from Merritt Island.
"But these services .are great.-
Every pregnant woman should
ask her doctor to complete the
screening form. I received
counseling on a diet that is
good for me and the baby,
information on nursing, using
car seats and resources for
finding pediatricians, nannies
and sitters.
"Receiving services from the
Healthy Start program
prepared 'me for a better
emotional well-being in coping
with the new lifestyle of
having a child," Hendrix said.
"It is very reassuring to-have-
someone to talk to and makes

you feel so much more
confident about everything
you're going through."
Completing the prenatal
screen also can help create a
blueprint for addressing
immediate, and sometimes
unforeseen, needs.
Such was the case with
Laurie and Ricky Rickett, who
had their lives turned upside
down due to a most unlikely
and unexpected pregnancy.
Thanks to care coordination
services received from Healthy
Start, they have landed safely
on their feet.
Laurie and her then-fiancd,
Ricky, had just moved to
Jackson County from
Mississippi to help.care for her
ailing father when some
pregnancy symptoms and mild
weight gain prompted a visit to
the county health department.
It couldn't be possible that she
was pregnant, as Laurie, age
40, had an adult child and had
been non-ovulatory for 20
.years. .. ... .
They were wrong.
Laurie Rickett was not only
pregnant, she was seven-and-a-
half months pregnant, apd the
reality of their situation set in

Public Service
Commission's
workshop
The Florida Public Service
Commission will hold an
informational workshop today,
Thursday, July 26, to discuss
renewable portfolio standards
and issues related to
encouraging the development
of renewable energy
generation in Florida.
The workshop will be held
at 9:30 a.m. at the Betty Easley
Conference Center, Joseph P.

It will include presentations
on the foundations for setting
and operating a renewable

cost of renewable energy
development and the impact on
electric rates associated with
establishing a state RPS will
be discussed.
The commission is
committed to .making sure


quickly.
"We didn't know anyone
here," she said. "We didn't
know any doctors or nurses,
and didn't have any
insurance."
Rickett said the nurse at the
health department asked
immediately if they wanted to
see a Healthy Start
coordinator.
"I didn't know anything
about the program, but I
thought anything that would
help me or the baby would be
an asset," Rickett said.
They would soon realize
what an important decision
they had made.
"Healthy Start is
unbelievable," Rickett said.
"We received help with
transportation to appointments
and information on child safety
seats, breastfeeding, how to
hold the baby, SIDS and
applying for the WIC program.
A lot has changed over-the last
20 years."

Starke's Ace Hardware offers customers a new look


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
A new hardware store is
now open in Starke.
OK, it's not really a new
store, but a lot of changes have
taken place at Ace Hardware
of Starke, including a 3,200-
square-foot addition to house
the business' power
equipment.
Vice President Roger
Rothwell said customers-and
employees-are going through
a bit of a learning process as
they adjust to the new layout
and new location of some
items.
"It looks like a totally brand
new store," Rothwell said.
Construction costs totaled
approximately $200,000, with
an additional $50,000-$60,000
spent on new inventory.
SPower equipment sales and
service now take place in a
building that is essentially
separate from the main
hardware store, though still
under one roof.


Whereas that part of the
business was limited in what it
could offer in the past, it now
boasts greater numbers and
more models of mowers and
other such equipment because
of greater floor and wall space.
Service manager Eddie
Huffstickler said he has been
told by representatives of such
companies as Echo and Stihl
that Starke now boasts one of
the best showrooms in Florida.
"The owners, they really
stepped up to the plate,"
Huffstickler said. "This is
something we were needing
for a long time."
Ace carries such models as
Echo, Husqvarna, John Deere,
Scag and Stihl and is an
authorized repair shop for
those models. Huffstickler said
mechanic Buren Wall has
more than 40 years of
experience.
Huffstickler said he and the
staff pride themselves on
providing customers with parts-
for their equipment in five


days or less.
The business provides pick-
up and delivery and sells small
engines for mowers, tillers and
go-karts.
Huffstickler said if someone
needs an equipment trailer,
they can buy that at the shop,
too.
"We can even set you up to
start your own lawn business,"
Huffstickler said.
Space opened up inside the
main hardware store after the
addition of the power
equipment and sales facility.
Assistant manager Richard
McKinney said a lot of items
the store could not carry before
can now be offered to
customers.
Now, instead of saying,
"No," Ace employees can say,
"Yes," more often when a
customer asks for a particular
item.
"It's worthwhile for people
to stop in and check,"

In Loving Memory
of
William V. Carter
Oct. 10, 1944-July 28, 2006
God saw you getting tired and
a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around
you and whispered, "Come
with me."
With tearful eyes we've
watched you suffer, and saw
you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped
'beating, hard working hands
laid to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
to us, He only takes the best.
We love and miss you

Devoted husband, father and

Where there is love, the heart
is light;
Where there is love, the day is
bright;
Where there is love, there is a
song;
To help when things are going
wrong. ..
Where there is love, there is
quietpeace;
A tranquilplace where
turmoils cease;
Oh, blest are they who walk in
love,
they also walk with God
above;
A million times we have
iiissed you,
A million tears we have cried;
if love could have saved you,
You never would have died.

.. U Used book sale to benefit

Editorial/Opinion BHS library July 26-27


Many years ago Larry Rogers' father
told him, "You'll never sell all those
peas."
Larry had planted 5 acres, which was
a lot of peas in those days, especially in
an known for new potatoes, string beans
and cucumbers. He sold all the peas
from the 5-acre plot and has continued
planting peas every year since, increasing
his acreage to the 800 acres planted in
several varieties this year.
He didn't reveal his dollar volume, but
he sells shelled peas and other vegetables
to customers living between Valdosta,
Ga., and St. Petersburg, between St.
Augustine and somewhere west of Lake
City. They drive from distant places
to buy peas and other fresh vegetables
grown by the Rogers family because
of the product quality and competitive
price.
Located on S.R. 121 between Lacrosse
and Gainesville, the Rogers' Farm and
Produce Market appears to be a typical
vegetable stand hammered together
and added on to as needed, alongside a
secondary, highway with limited traffic,
but don't be fooled by looks.
It is anything other than typical. It
is a well-constructed building that has
been enlarged thiee or four times to
provide workspace for shelling peas
-and butter beans and preparing other
vegetables produced on the farm. It
houses large walk-in storage coolers, an
.air-conditioned office, two commercial
pea-shellers with long grading belts, a
retail area and other equipment to serve
both retail and wholesale customers.
Rogers acknowledges the building may
not look impressive, but it serves his
purpose and looks like a produce stand
should look in the eyes of his customers.
He says a person can't afford to pay
taxes in Alachua County on a large, new
building. The rustic look is part of the
charm.
Workers had finished shelling peas and
were cleaning up the equipment when we
last visited the facility, shortly after lunch
on a recent Friday afternoon. A new field
Sof peas was opened that day, and the new
field will provide peas for another three
weeks.
The sellers and graders are local
workers, but the pea pickers are contract
laborers, Rogers said. Both groups
appear to be of Mexican descent and
most of them speak Spanish. The Rogers'
grandchildren, in their association with
farm workers, have learned to speak
Spanish and serve as interpreters for
supervisors.
Rogers believes workers from other
countries should be required to learn
English in order to stay in the United
States, but their presence in the American
fields is essential to agriculture. In the
present economy, American farmers-
-.-annot function-without importing field
workers, and his workers are kept happy
with wages above the minimum pay


Rogers says he is the fourth generation
of his family to live and farm in. the
area. He was in the U.S. Army Reserve
during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and' his
outfit was put on 24-hour alert, but the
invasion was aborted and his unit was
never mobilized.
He graduated from Alachua High
School, married Earline Benton and began
farming. "I grew corn and soy beans
until I went broke," he said, so Rogers
switched from conventional farming to
growing and marketing vegetables, and
has never looked back.
The Rogers' business lists 18 vegetables
grown and offered for sale at his stand,
including strawberries, tomatoes, squash,
cabbage, onions, eggplant, green peppers,
pickling cucumbers, peanuts, etc. He
grows 20 acres of Silver Queen corn,
which has become the variety of choice
in recent years, and five acres of "candy
corn," a variety in which the kernels are
colored red, white and yellow.
Although his retail customers come
from distant towns and communities, he
ships seven or eight truck loads of peas (in
the hull) to seven vendors in Mississippi,
Alabama and Georgia, and wholesales
shelled peas and beans to local vendors.
A bushel of peas and butterbeans in the
hull will shell out about 9 pounds and
is priced at $18, which includes $3 for
shelling.
People familiar with shelling peas
by hand agree the charge for machine
shelling is well worth the cost.
Peas and butterbeans .re -packaged
in 4-and-a-half-pound packages, and
priced at $9. The price of green corn and
other vegetables is competitive with local
markets.
The newly opened field will allow the
market to continue operation for about
three weeks (the end of July), after which
the senior Rogers will leave Alachua
County for far-away places in their 35-
foot fifth-wheel RV, complete with slide-
out rooms that literally double the living
space when the vehicle is parked.
The couple will be gone several weeks,
a routine they have followed for the.past
few years. In their absence, their son
Greg Rogers will reopen the market for
fall vegetables in September.
Larry and Earline Rogers work hard
and have been immensely successful
in their chosen field. While others have
abandoned row crop farming in North
Central Florida, they have found a niche
that allows them to continue their love
for the land and make a better-than-
average living for themselves and their
family-not a small feat for anyone to
accomplish.
In talking with Rogers, I determined
that he has found contentment, a condition
that escapes too many people.
SHe is one happy camper, enjoying the


good life.

Continued from p. 2B

McKinney said.
Rothwell said the Starke
store already sold more nuts,
bolts, screws and other similar
items than the Bryan's Ace
stores in Keystone Heights,
Interlachen and Melrose,
which are under the same
ownership. Now it offers the
largest selection of those
items.
Rothwell said expansion of
the Starke store had to be
addressed. It' had become the
smallest store compared to the
other stores in the ownership
group, but it was showing best
growth potential sales-wise.


That was something the
owners wanted to take
advantage of.
"One of the best ways to
expand your business is to
literally expand your
business," Rothwell said.
It's all a part of trying to
satisfy customers and giving
them reasons to stay and shop
at home as opposed to going to
a Lowes or Home Depot in a
larger city. The store in Starke
must be accomplishing that, as
Rothwell said the store sees a
lot of repeat customers.
There does not seem to be
any reason why that should
change now. Rothwell said
customer response to the
store's remodeling has been
"overwhelmingly positive."


"They've just all been very
happy about it," he said.
The employees are happy,
too.
"We're excited about it,"
store manager Nelson Carter
said. "We're looking to serve
the public for a long time to
come. We appreciate what our
customers have done in the
past and we're hoping they'll
be here in the future."

Bookworms will find plenty
to chew on at a used book sale
at the Bradford High School
media center today and
tomorrow, July 26-27, from 10
a.m. until 7 p.m.
New media specialists Dana
Scaff and Christie Torode have
been cleaning the shelves at
the media center, weeding out
older books in an attempt to
work on updating the
collection. Their efforts have
resulted in approximately
6,000 books that will be sold
for 25 cents each.
"How can you beat that?,"
Scaff asked.
The sale will be composed
of books taken from all areas
of the library, prompting Scaff
to say, "There's a little bit of
everything to choose from."
Some books needed to be
removed from shelves because
they contain information that
has since changed, while
others are too worn for
continuous checkout. Then
there are some books students
don't check out anymore.
Torode said she and Scaff
have been pulling books that
date back beyond 1979. Some
books even date back to the
1950s.
"There are some interesting,
unusual books to be found
down here," Torode said.
The sale will also include
other items, such as records
(anybody remember those?),
VHS tapes, chairs and
paintings.
It's all part of an effort to
make some changes in the
media center.
"We're just trying to spruce
it up and make it more inviting
to kids," Torode said.
Torode and Scaff have done
some rearranging, moving the
student computer stations and
equipping a classroom with
computers for teacher use.
They plan to create new
reading areas and stocking
those areas with new and
different books and periodicals
for the students to read.
Scaff said she also wants to
create a student project area

As you consider buying
your first home, you'll get lots
of advice, but you shouldn't do
anything without a complete
understanding of your financial
situation and how much home
you can afford. So, where do
you begin?
There are two parts to
financing the downpayment
(generally 20% of the purchase
price) and the balance (the
remaining 80%). Secure the
best interest rate by reviewing
your credit reports and correct-
ing errors, which are surpris-
ingly common. Do this at least
two months in advance of your
home search, as that's how
long it can take to clean up
your reports.
You'll know exactly what
you can afford by securing pre-
approval from a lender, who


will review your income, debt
and credit, and suggest the
loan best suited to your quali-
fications and needs. If you
can put down more than the
usual 20%, you may qualify
for a higher loan amount.
With less than 20% down,
you might pay a higher interest
rate or PMI (Private Mortgage
Insurance), because the lender
assumes a greater risk.
Consult a financial adviser
about ways to raise the cash,
like withdrawals from an IRA
or gifts from your parents.
Each has tax implications, so
proceed with caution.
With your financial house
in order, you're ready to dis-
cuss your desires with a real
estate professional and begin
your home search in earnest.
Congratulations!

SALE
Continued from p. 4B

that would also provide
students with materials such as
posterboard at a nominal cost.
In the end, Scaff said she
hopes the media center
becomes a "warm and
inviting" place for students.
Of course what the media
center needs are books. It will
take a while to fully restock
the shelves after the removal
of so many books.
"They do look bare," Torode
said of the shelves, "and it's
going to take several years to
build the collection back up."
The money raised from the
book sale will help do just that,
so Torode and Scaff encourage
book lovers, or anyone who
may just be interested in
browsing, to visit the media
center during the sale. After
all, one never knows what one
may find.
"There are some treasures in
here," Torode said.
Torode, though a new media
specialist this year, is no
stranger to BHS. She has
taught the past 13 years and
said it was simply time for a
change.
"I felt it was time for
another challenge," she said,
adding that she will continue
her involvement with the
production of the school's
yearbook.
Scaff is no stranger, either,
but she has been away from
Bradford County for a while.
Like Torode, she graduated
from BHS, but she has worked
at Lake Butler Elementary
School the past 21 years. She
taught P.E. for seven years and
worked in that school's media
center the past 14 years.
She, too, needed a new
challenge after working at the

Actually, the youngsters
were making quite a bit of
solid contact with their clubs
during the second such clinic
the Starke club has hosted this
summer (the first was in June).
Besides the 5-8 group, the
clinic was also offered -to
children 9-12 as part of a
separate group.
Club pro David Elder joked
that the main emphasis of the
clinic was to keep the children
from hitting each other in the.

was just a way to get children
used to being on the golf
course as well as giving them
the opportunity to have fun.
The fun part of that equation
seems to be a success. Several
of the children at the course
this week also took part in the
June clinic, as well as earlier
clinics.
"We get some of the same
kids year after year," Elder
said.

Former happy day has family trying to cope with loss


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
On a day a parent should be
surprising his or her child with
a "happy birthday" ad in the
newspaper, Jerri Parrott
instead had to prepare herself
to walk into the Union County
Times office and ask if she
could put in a memorial for her
daughter instead.
Parrott's daughter, Brittany
Carney, was run over and
killed at the age of 5 by the
school bus she had just stepped-
off of on Feb. 27 in Raiford.
Following a 911 call at 3:19
p.m., it was found that Union
County District School bus
No. 12, driven by Beverly
Tyson, 38, of Lawtey, was
headed north on Northeast
130th Terrace when it stopped
to let Brittany off in front of
her home.
Brittany crossed the street in
front of the bus and headed
toward her home on the left
side of the street. Lt. Bill
Leeper of the Florida Highway
Patrol said Tyson thought
Brittany had cleared the bus,
but as she began to pull
forward, she felt a bump.
Tyston stopped'the bus and
found she had run over
Brittany.


She would have celebrated
her sixth birthday July 25.
"I can't begin to tell you
how hard this has been on our
family," Parrott said. She and
her husband filed for divorce
shortly after the accident.
Parrott has three older
children: Jessica, 20, Tillman,
18, and 17-year-old Samantha,
who was at home to meet
Brittany's bus when the
accident took place.
"Brittany was actually the
only planned baby in the
family and she was a princess
from the day she was born,"
Parrott said.
But Brittany was not just
Parrott's baby girl, she was her
older siblings' baby girl as
well. "Parents often say their
child is spoiled rotten, but
when I say that about Britt-
Britt, it's completely-true,"
Parrott said.
The family Brittany left
behind no longer lives in the
home where the accident took
place. In their rental home,
there is a room that Brittany's
siblings painted for her
themselves. The room is filled
with drawings, colorings,
writings and pictures all
belonging to Brittany.
Parrott flips through a
special memory book put
together--by --- Brittany's

kindergarten teacher, Deana
Tucker of Lake Butler
Elementary School. On each
page, she finds a little comfort
as she reads her daughter's
daily journal entire.
Just before the accident, she
wrote, "I will go to the stor
with mi mom." "I will help mi
mom kuk denner."
"I look at things like this and
I know she loved me," Parrott
said.
Parrott has literally hundreds
of pictures of her daughter and
shares precious memories,
many of which draw more
tears to her eyes.
Born in West Palm Beach,
Brittany also lived in Atlanta
and Worthington Springs
before moving with her family
to Raiford in 2004 to be closer
to town.
Tired of renting, the family
had already contacted a real
estate agent to help them find
property in Union County. Just
days before the accident, the
agent had found the perfect
piece of property and an offer
was made. Brittany would be
gone before they ever received
the call back from the property
owner, and the hopes of
owning a home were dashed.
Brittany had been asking her
mom if she could have a pet of
her own. She wanted a bunny,
or maybe even a kitty, and her
mom told her that as soon as
they bought a house, she could
pick out a pet of her own.
Meanwhile, her brother's dog
had .puppies who stayed
outside in a dog house.
Brittany kept finding one
particular puppy, the runt of
the litter, which had fallen to
the ground outside the dog
house.
Brittany had named the
puppy Squirmy -and .she-'-d
often come home off the bus,
check the puppies and say,
"Mama, Squirmy fell out of
the dog house again," and pick
him up and put him biack
inside telling him he needed to
stop falling out of his house.
Since the family never gotd


their new home, and Brittany
never got the chance to pick
out her new pet, her mom
decided to keep Squirmy and
take care of him for her.
Brittany had just reached
several milestones before her
life was cut short. In January,
the training wheels were taken
off her bike, something that
Brittany was not happy about
and she told her mother so.
Parrott tried to reason with her
daughter, explaining she was
getting older and it was time
she learn to ride her bike
without the training wheels.
"Oh, I'll do that later,"
Brittany told her mom.
She had just learned how to
cross the monkey bars on the
playground and had read her
first book all on her own. For
the most part, Parrott said

New career center director addresses BC, UC issues


BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Of recent concern to the
Bradford-Union Career
Technical Center has been the
issue of Bradford High School
changing over to a six-period
day beginning with the 2007-
2008 school year. With classes
now beginning at 9 a.m., new
career center director Randy
Starling said at first, it quite
possibly may have a negative
effect on enrollment.
A new state law requiring
all ninth-graders to declare a
major area of interest not only
infringes upon BHS student
electives, but it also poses
problems with students
desiring to enroll in some of
the two-period-required
courses offered at the career
center.
With a six-period day, four
of which are designated to
meet core curriculum
requirements in English, math,
science and history, this leaves
students with only two periods
to try to schedule in their
career center choice or major
area of interest. This means the
days of being a member of the
BHS marching band and
taking two-period required
LPN courses are over. A
student whose IEP requires
they take a remedial class will
be unable to attend any
programs requiring the two-
period block during the school


Randy Starling
is the new
director of the
Bradford-Union
Career
Technical
Center. He
replaces the
retired
Clarence
DeSue.


day.
The time change for schools
in Bradford County has also
created new issues for
neighboring Union County.
Many UCHS students will no
longer be able to attend
courses at the career center
because of scheduling
conflicts.
According to UCHS
guidance counselor Beth
Moore, in the past, students
have always got on a bus and
headed to the center for first-
and second-period classes.
"With Bradford changing
their start times to right around
9 a.m., this is. no longer
possible for us to do," said
Moore, "and we can't expect
the center to conduct classes
for the Union students arriving
before their school is even in
session."


Pool Package includes:
* High Eff. Pump & Filter
* Low Maintenance Liner
* Worry-free Installation
* Free Delivery w/in 50 mi
* As low as $16'7 /month*


With what Moore has to
work with, schedule changes
for students wanting to take
courses at the career center are
also causing adjustments to be
made for other non-career
center students as well.
Unfortunately, scheduling
issues have left some students
with no choice but to drop out
of career center programs or
not sign up at all.
"I'm afraid our students are
being left out of the Vo-Tech
and we are doing everything
we can to keep kids from
dropping the courses, Moore
said.
A meeting with Union
County High School students
and their parents will take
place in the near future to go
over ideas and allow


opportunity for more input on
the issue.
According to records, during
the 2006-2007 school year,
754 high school students took
advantage of the classes
offered at the career center.
Center loses 3
instructors all at
once -
The career center has just
suffered the loss of three
educators: a business
education teacher, the LPN
instructor and a CDA
instructor at the close of the
2006-2007 school year.
Starling said it was just one of
those times when it all
happened at once.
Business instructor Mark
Santiago went into business for
himself, Joann Bracewell,
A.R.P.N. returned to work in
the medical field and CDA
instructor, Pam Norman went
to work for a private practice.
The business instructor
position currently open
presents challenges for a
replacement because it is based
at the Lawtey Correctional
Institution.
: Through a grant provided by
the state and the Department of
Corrections, the program's
instructor will provide
computer-based training to
inmates that are between six
and 12 months shy of release.


Inmates from all over the state
put in for transfers to Lawtey
Correctional so they can get
into the program.
Starling said, "When I've
received calls about the
position opening and tell
- people where the job is, they
are somewhat hesitant or
completely not interested at
all."
In all the years Santiago
worked- in this capacity,
Starling said he never once
experienced any problems.
With inmates on the verge of
release, it is to their advantage
to not mess things up for
themselves and gain some
marketable job skills before


they re-enter the general
population.
Adult education
at the career
center
Starling explained that as far
as adult education classes go,

block masonry, carpentry,
business, administrative
assistance or computer repair
and start on any date they
wish. On the other hand,
classes with the LPN,
cosmetology or truck driving
programs do have set start and
end dates.
In order to offer open
entry/open exit, the instructors
at the career center must stay
very organized. No two
students are necessarily on the
same page at the same time.
Students progress through the
various modules at their own
pace.
"With this type of
instruction, there isn't much
standing in front of the
classroom writing on the
board," Starling said.
Instead, instructors know the
lesson plans inside and out and
work individually with each
adult depending upon where
they are at in the program.
During 2005 and 2006, the
career center had a cumulative
enrollment of 186 adults who
started a class on the campus.


For adults interested in
taking courses at the career
center and they do not qualify
for a Pell grant, the center
offers institutional scholarship
money. Applications are
reviewed by administration to
determine how much financial
-aid they can offer.
2007 and beyond
During his 19 years at the
career center, Starling said
there has been a big shift in the
general mentality of attending
a vocational center while still
in high school.
"I even had to try and
explain to my own child that
while he was in high school a
certificate program at the
career center offers marketable
job skills to support himself
while attending college. He
believes some parents still
don't realize the career center
goes hand in hand with college
preparation.
"College scholarships don't
pay the rent or buy groceries,"
Starling said.
The latest big push in
Florida is to open high school
academies. With a health
career academy, for example, a
student's math, English,
science and social studies
courses are all centered around


the health-related field.
Starling said he is working
on changes that can.be made to
offer academies to Bradford
County students.
"It's a little trickier here as
opposed to Union County,
where their new academies are
on the same campus as the
high school," Starling said.
"So it doesn't take much for a
math teacher to teach health-
related math for two periods in
the health occupations
academy and then walk to his
or her regular classroom or
other academy to teach another
math for the rest of the day."
With the career center and
BHS on separate campuses,
this is not something either
facility can offer because the
teachers are unable to go from
one campus to the other
throughout the school day.
However, there is hope
because Starling said if he is
able to get enough academies
established at the career center
-say business, health, computer
and criminal justice- then his
campus can support full-time
core curriculum instructors.
Space for the academies is not
a factor.
"Florida Works was located
on the campus for a long time,
paying rent back to the county.
They moved off campus to a


more visible location, allowing
room to expand our class
offerings," Starling said. In
addition, the family services
center has available space as
well.
Starling feels some parents
still mistakenly perceive the
career center as an alternative
to college and assume children
are enrolling in a useless
certificate program that will
not move them on to a college
degree. However, the career
center actually provides
students will skills which will
complement their chosen
career choice.


For example, just this past
school year, Mike Beville of
the masonry department
received his training to offer
Occupational Safety and
Health Administration, or
OSHA, certification to
masonry students.
This is a huge bonus to
students fresh out of high
school, looking for a job in the
industrial field. When an
employer sees they have an
OSHA certification card and
they won't have to pay to put
them through'the training, it
increases their chances of
employment.


Renee Cooper, a 2007
graduate of Union County
High School, spent her senior
year taking masonry courses.
She went on to receive a
second-place win in a state
masonry competition. An
organization in Gainesville
took notice and hired Cooper
on the spot. When they
realized she had received her
OSHA certification in
Beville's class, she was given
a substantial pay raise.
"This is just one of many
success stories we hear about
from former high school
students," Starling said.

BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Randy Starling came to the
career center as a ninth-grade
business instructor in August
1988.
Shortly thereafter, another
instructor retired and he took
on teaching the accounting and
co-op classes for Bradford
High School students. From
there, Starling was appointed
to also begin developing post-
secondary student programs.
Starling explained that at
first, adults were in the same

Hull offers a simple explanation for this

Remember, interest rates are still very

couldn't believe it when she
walked into the bathroom and
saw Brittany's nearly bald-
headed Dora the Explorer doll
on the floor surrounded by hair
clippings. Brittany was
standing in front of the mirror
cutting her own bangs out of
her eyes.
She also loved being
outside, whether playing at the
park in Lake Butler, swimming
in the pool at her house or
picking flowers in the yard.
When she wasn't outdoors, she
could be found dressed up like
a princess, complete with tiara,
in her favorite colors of pink
and purple.
Parrott said her daughter had
an adorable smile and a heart
of gold. She came home from
school one day and told her
mom that one of her friends at
school had her house burned to
the ground in a fire.
"I have to give her some of
my toys to play with and some
of my clothes because she
doesn't have anything left,
Mama," Brittany said.
Brittany's favorite movie
was "Cinderalla III," which
she and her mom watched
from the truck in their front
yard the night they bought it


because the player in the house
wasn't working right.
"It's times like that I will
always cherish," Parrott said,
"and I just don't know what
I'm supposed to do without her
now. And Samantha's hurting
so bad, she was there with
Brittany right after the
accident. She blames herself, I
blame myself and we've gone
to counseling, but everything
just hurts so much. Samantha
can not even bring herself to
talk about her baby sister."
On Mother's Day this year,
Parrott had a tattoo put on her
arm in honor of Brittany.
Samantha, Tillman and
Jessica's fiance also got the
same tattoo. Parrott said
Jessica couldn't get the tattoo
just yet-she's expecting her
first baby any day now.
"I just don't know how to do
this," Parrott said. "Her baby's
due two days after Brittany's
birthday. My first grandbaby.
It's one of the happiest
moments of her life as well as
one of the saddest.
Parrott opens a jewelry box
filled with her daughter's
ribbons and hair bows,
costume jewelry and her
Barbie cell phone, but puts it

much too hard to look at just
yet.
For the longest time, Parrott
just wanted to close her eyes
and be able to see her
daughter. The medication the
doctor had put her on kept her
so sedated that she could not
remember dreaming.
"I wanted to see her so bad


and talk to her in my dreams
and make sure she's OK,"
Parrott said, "so I had to get a
different medicine."
Later that same night, she
said Brittany finally came to
her in a dream and gave her
mother the biggest hug as she
whispered in her ear, "I'm OK,
Mama."


This bookcase in Jerri Parrott's living room holds
precious memories of a daughter taken from her

(:Coi nueed from p. 3C

gained its accreditation
through the Council on
Occupational Education,
making it eligible for Pell
grants. With that, Starling took
on the additional responsibility
of a financial aid coordinator.
"I had to wear lots of hats,"
Starling said.
He instructed adult courses
for the first few hours of the
day, and then took care of
financial aid paperwork for the
remainder of the day.
In 2000, career center
coordinator Jim Lewis
transferred to Brooker
Elementary School and Ward
made the decision to not fill
his position and instead
delegate his former
responsibilities out to Starling
and fellow staff member, Lisa
Graham, who is now principal
at the Renaissance Center.
"We were labeled as
teachers on special assignment
and became 12 month
employees in administrative


training where we each did our
regular assignments for half
the day and the shared
administrative assignments for
the remaining half of the day,"
Starling said. In essence, Ward
was thinking ahead because he
knew he would be retiring
soon, so for the next two years,
Starling and Graham training
for administrative positions.
Clarence DeSue was hired in
2003 as the new director and
Starling became the daytime
coordinator, dealing with
discipline issues, working with
the performance based
program and serving as the
accreditation liaison. By the
time
DeSue retired in early 2007,
Starling had worked his way
into filling the former
director's position.
When Starling says he was
born in Bradford, he means not
only the county, but Bradford
Hospital as well. He attended
Brooker Elementary School
and graduated from Bradford
High School in 1982. He
attended Santa Fe Community
College for two years, and then
received his Bachelor's degree


in -business administration
from Palm Beach Atlantic
College.
Starling returned to Starke,
not really knowing what he
wanted to be when he grew up,
and started working on a dairy
farm and got married.
"My wife and I were ready
to start a family and the
farming career just wasn't
going to cut it," Starling said.
He put his degree to work
for the state in the business
department at Sunland
Training Center (now called
Taccachale). After eight
months, he transferred to the
Department of Children and
Family Services in Starke,
processing Medicaid assistance
for residents in Bradford and
Union counties.
"One day on my lunch hour,
I came to the career center to
see favorite high school
teacher, Edna Harrington. She
introduced me to Becky
Reddish, who was teaching
next door at the time," Starling
said, Reddish mentioned there
was an opening for an
instructor in the business
department and he applied and


got the job.
"I didn't have a lifelong
dream of teaching," Starling
admitted. "It was a job that
paid more than what I was
making at the time, so I
applied for it. Now I can't
imagine being anywhere else."
After his first year of
struggling as a teacher, he
found that he truly enjoyed it
and decided he had found
where he wanted to be.
This was at a time when
many colleges were beginning
to open satellite campuses at
various locations, making
colleges more accessible to
students. A lifelong friend of
Starling's asked him one day if
he was aware that the
University of North Florida
was offering a master's degree
program in educational
leadership somewhere in
Bradford County.
Feeling like the last one to
know, Starling found out the
program was not only going to
be offered at the career center,
but it was also going to be
right there in his classroom
during the evening hours. So,
two nights a week, Starling


moved from his teacher's desk
and into a student desk as he
obtained his degree.


He smiled as he said, "More
than 25 years later, I am now
my favorite teacher's boss."


Every government is run by liars and nothing they say should be
believed.
-I.F. Stone

No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing
because he could do only a little.

Blanding conference center serves military, community


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
If asked what the most
important goals of the Camp
Blanding Joint Training Center
are, its commander, Col.
Benny Nelson will tell you
they are providing for the
needs of National Guardsmen
in the best possible way, while


also striving to be a good
neighbor.
Both of those goals will
indeed be met with the
opening of the Camp Blanding
Conference Center, a 10,000
square-foot facility with a
conference/training room,
dining area, kitchen, bar and a
deck that overlooks Kingsley
Lake. --

"It's a great dia, for the
Florida National JGuard ai r.ell
as our community.' Nelson
said during a grand-opening
ceremony on lulu 20
The conference Lenter is the
result of renot ati:rn t:o the
former Mood;, Hall. a ser% ice
club built in 1980. \\ork on
the $1.4 million prolecthgean-
m Juhne 2006 and %.as
completed this past June.
The project came about as
the result of a need at Blandina
to provide such a facilii f'or
senior commanders of major
commands.
"We didn't ha e that
capability here at Camp
Blanding," Nelson said.
The conference center can
seat approximately 250 in its
conference/training room as
well as the same amount in its-
dining room, making it not
only beneficial for Camp
Blanding and its mission, but
for the neighboring area,
Nelson said. He said it would
be available to the public and
mentioned it would -be
: -especially- beneficial for-
smaller communities that don't
have such a facility in which to
host events.
"Any time we've got
something and we can share it,
it's good for all of us," Nelson
said after the ceremony.
Nelson said he asked Maj
Gen. Douglas Burnette.
Florida's adjutant general, for
help with the project. As has
been the case so many times.
Burnette was able to obtain
funding for the project.
"Gen. Burnette's ability to
continue to go out and get
resources is amazing," Nelson
said.
Camp Blanding also
received help in the project
through the support of Cla\
County, which has always
been supportive of its efforts.
Nelson said.
"We are deeply honored to
have partners with us like Clay
County," he said as he
expressed thanks to Kellie Jo
Kilberg, president of the Clay
County Chamber of
Commerce. "I don't care what
part of Clay County we're

dealing with at the time.
They're always in front of us,
pushing for us. We're grateful
to be in Clay County.
-Another important supporter
of the project was the Florida
Defense Alliance, which
provided funds for the project.
Nelson thanked several
people involved with the
Florida Defense Alliance, but


Rocky McPherson, the
organization's executive
director, took the podium and
expressed his thanks to the
Florida National Guard for its
actions during times of peace,
var and natural disaster.
"Thank you for what you do
for our country, for our state
and for our citizens,"
McPherson said.


Nelson also gave thanks to
George Browning of Browning
Construction Inc. of Starke, the
contractor of the project. He
said Browning is a rare
contractor in that he will take it
upon himself to help make a
project better.
"He provides us a lot that's
not in the contract," Nelson
said.


The new Camp Blanding Conference Center, which was the former Moody Hall, was
unveiled during a grand-opening ceremony on July 20.
