The accident occurred near the intersection of El Dorado Avenue and C.R. 214 around 6:30 a.m. Sheriffs office public information coordinator Mary Justino said that the two were walking on the edge of the road and the driver of the pickup did not see them in time to avoid hitting them.

Lake Region man was in Secret Service for 23 years BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A former Secret Service agent recounted his years with the federal agency during a Keystone Heights Rotary Club meeting on April 11. Tom Dailey joined the Treasury Department branch shortly after graduating from Florida State University in 1965. After retiring from the Secret Service, he spent an additional 16 years in law enforcement with the Clay County Sheriffs Office. Dailey started in the Jacksonville field office in 1965. After one year, he transferred to Boston, and then to the White House detail where he was assigned to protect Julie Nixon, Vice President Richard Nixons daughter. For a year and a half, he and his fellow agents protected the vice presidents daughter while she was a student at Smith College in Massachusetts. He then transferred to Washington, where he served on the White House detail after Richard Nixon was elected president, then spent 15 years in the Washington field office before returning to Jacksonville to complete his career. Dailey is active in the Association of Former Agents of the U.S. Secret Service, and meets twice a year with his former colleagues during association reunions. Dailey told the Rotary Club that the agency started in 1865. The service was originally a branch of the U.S. Treasury Department and was responsible for combatting counterfeiting. Dailey said that in 1865, most states issued their own currencies and two-thirds of the currency in circulation was fraudulent. He also said that during his time in the service, the agency investigated fraudulent Social Security checks and other counterfeits of U.S. Treasury documents. Dailey added that when he retired in 1987, identity theft, computer fraud, electronic funds transfer fraud and other technology based crimes were beginning to emerge. The Secret Service started protecting presidents in 1906, following the 1901 assassination of President William McKinley. Dailey said the scope of the agencys protection assignments have changed constantly and continue to change. He said spouses to the president and vice president were offered lifetime protection. Later, former presidents and foreign dignitaries visiting the U.S. were also offered protection. After the Bobby Kennedy assassination, he said, we picked up protecting candidates. Dailey said he spent time on Ronald Reagans detail when the California governor ran for president in 1968. Reagan was Richard Nixons chief rival for the Republican nomination that year. Reagan supporters had planned to challenge Nixons candidacy at the Republican National Convention in Miami by uniting with the backers of candidate Nelson Rockefeller. However, the strategy fell apart when the two men refused to support one another for the nomination. Nixon won the nomination on the first ballot and selected Maryland Governor Spiro Agnew as his running mate I took him (Reagan) into the Miami convention, recalled Dailey. We left the next day with Spiro Agnew. Dailey remained on the Agnew detail through the rest of the 1968 campaign. In 1976, after the Emir of Iran faced hostile crowds during a visit to New York, the agency was assigned to protect foreign heads of state. Dailey said one notable foreign leader he was assigned to was King Hussein of Jordan, who carried an automatic weapon and flew his own aircraft. Dailey said the Secret Service has undergone sharp changes since his days with the agency. He said he disagreed with the decision to move the agency from the Treasury Department to Homeland Security. He also said that most agents now are short timers, aiming to remain in the Secret Service for two to three years before moving onto other opportunities. I spent 23 years with them, he said. Most people back then Tom Dailey (left) escorts Vice Presidential candidate and Maryland Governor Spiro Agnew into the St. Petersburg studios of WLCY-TV (now WTSP) in 1968. See SERVICE, 4A CCUA: water use down 19 percentBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Utility Authority said it is pumping 19 percent less water from Florida Aquifers now than it did in 2009, even though the utility has 2,399 more customers than it did in February of that year. CCUAs managers credited the utilitys tiered rate structure for the decrease in water use. The plan, implemented in 2010, charges customers a higher pergallon rate as they use more water. The utility said 67.2 percent of its residential customers use no more than the tier 1 allowance of 6,000 gallons per month, and that those customers use an average of 3,248 gallons per month. In its March conservation rate structure assessment, the organizations staff said that rainfall through February had been normal and that when See WATER, 6AKeystone students sweep steer show KHHS students earn ribbons at fair High School career students display skills at fair Middleburg student places first in state science fair FWC: Watch out for bears Commission marks child abuse prevention month Commissioners: Share the road MADD: Talk to chil dren about under age drinking Digital campaign signs approved Home business rule changes approved Hilton manager appointed to tourism council Report: Four utili ties made $18 million in political do nations TPO begins public hearings for longrange transportation plan DOT puts C.R. 225 on priority list Putnam Hall remembers beloved couple Trinity Baptist presents passion play Missionary teaches at Easter egg hunt Clay sergeant graduates from leadership academy CCSO officers train to help children with autism Alachua County Sheriffs Office recognizes communi cations officers Sports Obituaries Social news Letters to the editor

Commission marks child abuse prevention month BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County commissioners proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention month. Commissioner Diane Hutchings read the proclamation which acknowledged the role Kids First of Florida plays in helping neglected and abused children in Clay County. Kids First is a community based nonprofit which delivers foster care, adoption, protective supervision and other services to families. Hutchings said Florida is home to over 4 million children and that the abuse and neglect of children can cause severe, costly and lifelong problems affecting all of society, including physical and mental health problems, school failure and criminal behavior. She also said a working partnership between law enforcement, government agencies, nonprofits and businesses is key to preventing child neglect and abuse. Commissioners: Share the roadBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County Commissioners urged motorists to share the road with bikers in proclaiming May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month during their April 8 meeting. Commissioner Doug Conkey said that as the weather becomes more spring-like, more bikers are taking to the road to enjoy a great hobby. All too often, he added, as we see on the news almost on a weekly basis, tragic accidents occur that involve motorcycles. Conkey reminded attendees of the county commission meeting that bikers have little protection in collisions and that motorists should be aware of bikers around them. In reading the proclamation, he said that over 800,000 twowheelers are now registered in Florida, and that motorcycles are more frequently becoming the primary means of transportation for many residents. The decree also acknowledged the Black Creek Chapter of American Bikers Aiming Toward Education as a leading group promoting motorcycle safety in Clay County. Mike Coduto, of the Black Creek chapter accepted the proclamation on behalf of the group. He said the chapter is planning a major motorcycle safety event at the Jacksonville Landing on May 10. He invited the crowd to join the organization, as well as the Florida Highway Patrol, Jacksonville Sheriffs Office, and Lt. Ron Hodges of the Clay County Sheriffs Office to the afternoon event. MADD: Talk to children about underage drinkingBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A representative of Mothers Against Drunk Driving told Clay County commissioners about the importance of parents talking to their children about underage drinking. Judy Cotton, a program specialist with MADD, was on hand at the commissions April 8 meeting to receive a proclamation endorsing MADDs Powertalk 21 program. Powertalk 21 is a nationwide effort by the organization to encourage parents to talk to their children about the risks of drinking before reaching age 21. The campaign stretches from April 1 to April 21. MADD has nothing against alcohol, she said. I dont want anybody to think thats the agenda here today. We just want to make sure that people wait until they are 21 and that they never, ever get behind the wheel of a vehicle, here in Clay County or anywhere else, if they become impaired. Commissioner Ronnie Robinson, who read the proclamation supporting Powetalk 21 said that all drivers license applicants should be required to attend a MADD meeting. He added that he has dropped in on a few meetings and found them to be beneficial. According to MADD, parents are the number one influencer of childrens decisions about alcohol and teens are 80 percent less likely to drink if their parents tell them clearly it is unacceptable. Digital campaign signs approvedBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Commission approved changes to its sign code, expanding the size of acceptable political yard signs and also allowing political messages on digital billboards, without the size limitations of conventional campaign displays. The planning commission also recommended county commissioners restrict the use of banners to grand openings and mobile business use. However Commissioner Diane Hutchings, who asked the planning commission to restrict banner use withdrew that section of the revision. She said the restriction might prohibit activities she had not intended to impede, such as the practice of churches advertising Vacation Bible Schools with temporary banners. Doug Conkey also said he had concerns about the banner limitation. He wanted to know how the revision would affect banners hung on the fences of little league baseball fields. Commissioners also sent another recommendation back to the planning panel for further discussion: a provision prohibiting the placement of campaign signs on parcels which host precincts. County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos said her staff added the provision based on the volume of complaints from residents about campaign signs at polling locations. I was shocked at the number of people who complained about how many signs (were at precincts), she said. Kopelousos added that motorists complained some of the placards were getting caught under vehicles and others had fallen into the roadway and were run over by traffic. Commissioner Wendell Davis said the proliferation of signs at voting locations created a safety risk. There were so many signs in front of the Fleming Island Library that people couldnt find the driveway to turn in he said. And then if they did, then they had to run over somebody waving a sign. And if they got by that, then they had to see around the tent that was in the middle of the parking lot. Davis also said he witnessed some near fender benders at the precinct within the Orange Park library on Plainfield Avenue because of signs and overcrowding. The commission agreed with Conkeys suggestion that instead of banning campaign signs at polling locations, they ask the planning commission to recommend a limit on such signs, similar to the rule already existing on residential yard signs, which limit the number of signs on each parcel to one candidate or issue. Home business rule changes approvedBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County commissioners approved a recommendation by the planning board expanding the use of home occupations under the countys zoning rules. Holly Parrish, director of economic and development services told commissioners Clay County is only one of seven northeast Florida counties that currently restrict home occupations to clerical and administrative services. She also said the county stands alone by prohibiting commercial activity in accessory buildings within agricultural neighborhoods. Under the new rules, some athome industries are still banned, including auto and appliance repair and barber and beauty shops. Commissioner Ronnie Robinson reminded his colleagues that they dealt with the home business issue several months ago when a Keystone Heights-area resident requested permission to operate a plant nursery from a parcel zoned agriculture-residential. Weve got people that have been doing this for years anyway on this type of property, he said. I dont know why its our place to say you cant do it to start with. Commissioner Doug Conkey said he recently attended a neighborhood meeting where he heard complaints that a suspected home business was creating excessive traffic on a small street. Especially if you have two, three or four homes on a small street, he said, the impact is magnified.Hilton manager appointed to tourism councilBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County commissioners appointed the director of sales at the Hilton Garden Inn of Jacksonville and Orange Park to the countys tourism development committee. Becky Schaeffer will fill the term of Brenna Van Ness who moved out of the state earlier this year. The term runs through March 9, 2015. Schaeffer brings more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry to the council. She is active in the Clay County Chamber of Commerce, is a member of the culinary and hospitality advisory board for the Clay County School District and is a member of the culinary advisory board at Florida State College at Jacksonville. In her application for the position, Schaeffer wrote, I moved to Orange Park after gaining the position at the HGI OP in October 2011. As an over the Buckman first timer, I had to learn fast about what was over, around, near and cool about the area so that I could gain the edge when selling to soccer moms, wedding clients, family reunion planners, Navy support personnel and business travelers of all kinds. I have come away from living over here for two years with a great love for all of the parks, hiking trails and natural beauty of the county. Kathy D. White, general manager of Stay Suites of America in Orange Park also applied for the open seat on the council. Commissioner Doug Conkey, who serves on the TDC as the non-voting chair, recommended Schaeffer for the post. Both are wonderful candidates, he said, but I think Ms. Schaeffer brings a lot of expertise to the TDC.Report: Four utilities made $18 million in political donationsBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A report by a research institute and government watchdog said Floridas largest electric providers made over $18 million in political contributions from 2004 to 2012. The report, Power Play: Political Influence of Floridas Top Energy Corporations, by Florida Integrity said the states four largest electric utilities, Florida Power and Light, Duke Energy, Tampa Electric and Gulf Power contributed mostly to the Florida Republican and Democratic parties. The document also claimed that the four companies spent over $12 million on 601 lobbyists from 2007 to 2013. The report also claimed that the industrys influence in Tallahassee played a role in the ouster of four Public Service Commission members who voted against rate hikes proposed by FPL and Progress Energy (now Duke Energy) in 2010. Four of the five PSC commissioners voted against the FPL and Progress Energy rate hikes, the report said. All four of those commissioners lost their jobs within a few months. The paper recommended several reforms, including drafting uniform ethics rules for legislators and local officials, putting inspector general reports, gift and client disclosures made by state lawmakers and regulators online and making campaign donations from vendors and state regulated industries more transparent.TPO begins public hearings for long-range transportation planBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The North Florida Transportation Planning Organization will hold public hearings throughout April to discuss its long-range transportation plan for Duval, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns See TPO, 4A

Dailey added that some of the negative publicity the service has recently endured because of alleged agent misconduct is the result of recruits not viewing the service as a long-term career. It was a good career, he said of his time in the Secret Service. I dont miss any of the work. I dont miss any of the jobs. I dont miss any of the long hours. I dont miss any of the trips-the anniversaries that I missed; the child births that I missed. But I do miss the people.SERVICEContinued from 1A On April 15, the Alachua County Sheriffs Office joined other law enforcement agencies around the country in observing National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. In a press release, the sheriffs office said that every day, millions of people in the United States depend on the skill, expertise and commitment of the men and women who work in public safety telecommunications. These individuals help save countless lives by responding to emergency calls, dispatching emergency professionals and providing moral support to citizens in distress. Last year in Alachua County, the combined communications center answered 146,753 911 calls and 261,563 administrative calls, while dispatching 307,747 calls for service to sheriffs deputies, Gainesville police, Alachua County Fire Rescue, Gainesville Fire Rescue, rural contracted municipal fire departments, and the Waldo Police Department. On April 15, the communications center presented a static display with its partner agencies, highlighting the mobile technology public safety officers use in the field.

The classes trained deputies to identify and approach children with autism who have wandered or run away, in order to prevent a tragedy. Lauren Papke, a pediatric speech-language pathologist with Wolfson Childrens Rehabilitation Services led the effort to train the CCSO officers. She began to look into the training after a parent of one of her patients, a 6-year-old child with autism, shared her anxiety about her sons safety at school. He has wandered away from his classroom several times, and has been found in the school parking lot or in a closet in another part of the school, Papke recalled. The mother of a Boy Scout in Clay County, Papke asked one of her sons Scout leaders, who is a Clay County Sheriffs Office deputy, if his training on dealing with runaways included how to identify and rescue a child with autism who had eloped. When the officer said it didnt, Papke and her colleague, pediatric occupational therapist Courtney Ward decided to help. They discovered that although there are major resources for police officers around the country on interacting with children with autism, there were none on the First Coast. Elopement, the act of wandering away and getting lost is one the most serious problems facing caregivers of autistic children. Many children who elope become victims of traffic accidents or drowning. Papke said children with autism react differently to law enforcement officers than other children. They may not respond to the officers orders, which could be interpreted as defiance, or they may bolt into water or traffic to escape the situation, she said. In other cities, this has resulted in drowning and traffic-related deaths. The most common elopement risks seen in these children are: Bolting to get away from a situation the child wants to avoid, such as loud noise or a crowd; Goal-directed elopement, when a child with autism is fascinated and attracted to water, traffic, trains and other potentially dangerous situations without recognizing the risk and Boundary-setting issues, not understanding the boundaries of home, school or other familiar settings. Ward said that around 350 children are enrolled in the autism program in the Clay County School District. Papke and Ward trained officers on everything from a modified search and rescue for a missing child with autism, to reunification with parents and other caregivers. Lt. Kenneth Wagner with the Professional Services Division/ Training Section Office of the Clay County Sheriffs Office welcomed the classes. We are always looking for ideas for expanding the training we provide our members, he said. I am sure there are ways our deputies can improve their interactions with special needs residents, including those with autism. Papke and Ward said they hope to also offer training to other first responders, parents and teachers about the dangers of elopement behaviors in children with autism. Ninety-one percent of deaths associated with people with autism are associated with drowning, secondary to elopement, noted Ward.Clay sergeant graduates from leadership academy Law Enforcements leadership academy on April 11. Johnson has been with the CCSO since June of 1996. He has served as a deputy, investigator, Operation Safe Streets supervisor, communications sergeant and patrol sergeant. He has a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Barry University. Johnson and the 33 other graduates of the academy serve in leadership roles in criminal justice agencies from across the state.

Supervisor Mike Vallencourt questioned the reports assertion that February rainfall totals were slightly below normal. I dont see anything in February that was normal, he said. Weve been in nothing but a constant rain pattern and I can show you whatever report you want to look at. Where does this normal come from? I do not agree that we are in any type of a normal weather pattern. Executive Director Tom Morris said normal rainfall was an average of National Weather Service data over the past 10 years. Morris also said that the National Weather Service computes average rainfall from gauges at the Jacksonville International Airport, which is 34 miles from CCUA offices in Middleburg. He added that even between the utilitys own plants, recorded rainfall varies greatly. Supervisor Frank Gerwe said he also questioned the accuracy of the rainfall findings in the conservation report. It seems to me, if we are going to be making recommendations on where we are going to go with our rates, if necessary, we need to have data thats a little more accurate, he said. FWC: Watch out for bearsThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds the public to be aware that bears are now or soon will be on the move as they are leaving their winter dens. There are important things people can do over the next few months to reduce negative interactions with Floridas largest land mammal. Now is the time to expect bears to show up looking for food, said Dave Telesco, who directs the FWCs bear management program. If they cant find food in your neighborhood, theyll move on. Female bears that gave birth to cubs that were only 12 ounces in January are beginning to move around with their babies, which are now around 5 pounds. As the cubs continue to grow, the family unit will roam farther and could be more visible to people. While black bears generally are not aggressive, a mother bear may try to defend her cubs. Never intentionally approach a bear. Do not assume when you see a lone adult bear that there are no cubs, because the cubs may be hidden nearby. When walking dogs, keep them close and be aware of your surroundings. Dogs can trigger defensive behaviors from bears. Keep human sources of food, like garbage, birdseed and pet food, secure from bears so they wont wander into your neighborhood this spring looking for an easy meal. Use a bear-resistant trash can, build a bear-resistant trash can shed or modify your existing trash can with hardware to make it more resistant. Instructions for these methods, plus a video on how to use an electric fence to deter bears can be found at www. pinterest.com/myfwc/bearnecessities/. If you do not have a bearresistant garbage can, consider building a bear-resistant trash can shed. In Collier County, the FWC is partnering with local Boy Scout volunteers to build sheds that will deter bears from accessing garbage. The FWC received a grant from the Wildlife Foundation of Florida, using proceeds from the Conserve Wildlife license plate, to build and install 70 bearresistant wooden trash can sheds for residents of two East Naples mobile home parks, who have no other way to keep their garbage away from bears. As females and cubs increase their movements this time of year, they also increase the number of roads they cross. For the safety of yourself and bears, remember to slow down when driving, particularly on rural highways at dawn or dusk. Watch for road signs identifying bear crossing areas. Over 200 Florida bears were killed after being hit by vehicles in 2013. Having conflicts with bears? Call one of the FWCs five regional offices.

Over 200 cast and crew members participated in the event, which was produced and conducted by the Rev. Scott Stanland. Lenny Williams pops a red balloon during his presentation to children at the third annual Community Easter Egg Hunt in Keystone Heights. Williams used the balloon to illustrate his claim that simply attending church will not provide a way to heaven. He also told parents and children in the Champions Heart Chapel that religion, baptism and being good to attaining eternal life, but death of Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. Williams is a missionary with Hawthornes Camp Good News, a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship of North Central Florida.

opportunity was there, I looked at it as a way to spread awareness and get the word about CF out. Stone said adding Sims to the Dreadknots had to be done. We had to get a good boat driver, somebody who knew what they were doing, somebody who could actually navigate the water proper, Stone said, before adding in practically the same breath, Not to mention shes hot. She aint bad to look at, Roberts agreed. The problem is youve got to beat the boys off the boat. It cuts into your time. In all seriousness, though, Stone said hes never met anyone with a better story to tell than Sims. He said shes by far one of the best people hes ever met and admires the way cystic fibrosis doesnt slow her down. This girl has more heart than anybody Ive ever met in my life, Stone said. Though a newcomer to the Dreadknots team, which has been a part of Ax Men since season six, Sims said she immediately felt right at home. Yeah, from the beginning it was easy for us all to get along, she said. I think the first day that we filmed, Clint and I were joking and laughing about as hard as possible for about 15 minutes. We almost got in trouble with the film crew because we couldnt stop. It was just a natural thing for all of us. We all get along, we all have the same mindset on a lot of things and we all see eye to eye on a lot of things as well. Our personalities are very similar. Stone said one of the best times hes had was just goofing off with Sims on a day in which Roberts had to take his daughter to a school orientation. They spent their time throwing sandwiches back and forth to each other, trying to catch them in their mouths, among other things. We actually wound up paddling the boat backward down the river, Stone said. It was no surprise to Stone that Sims has fit right in. He alluded Keystone Heights High School had four win their weight classes, thus ensuring their spots in the Florida High School Athletic Association Boys Weightlifting Finals, while an additional four lifters from Keystone, Bradford and Union County also earned the right after their performances at the District 4-1A statequalifying meet on April 10 in South Daytona. The winners of each weight class at each of the states qualifying meets earned the right to compete at the state meet, which will be held April 25-26 at the Kissimmee Civic Center. At the District 4 meet, Keystones Dakota Hodge, Lane Blanton, Chase Musselman and Darein Gilio topped their respective classes. Hodge won the 129-pound class with a 405 total (225 bench, 180 clean and jerk), while Blanton had a top total of 485 (240, 245) in the 139 class. Musselman had a 560 total (280, 280) to win the 169 class, while Gilio won the 199 class with a 565 total (300, 265). The totals of the remaining lifters throughout the state who did not place first at district meets were compared to make up the rest of the field at state. Keystones Steven Beverly made the cut after placing second in the 129 class at the District 4 meet. He had a 400 total (210, 190). Bradfords Jarvis DeSue also earned a second-place finish and will move on to state. He compiled a 510 total (275, 235) in the 154 class. Also qualifying for state were Unions Austin Long and Keystones Brandon Johnson. Long placed third in the 129 class at the District 4 meet with a 370 total (205, 165), while Johnson placed fourth in the 154 class with a 500 total (265, 235). Though not qualifying for state, Keystones Dakota Black and Unions Alden McClellon earned top-three places at the District 4 meet. Black was runner-up in the 139 class with a 415 total, while McClellon was third in the 169 class with a 510 total. Unions Dylan Bass placed fourth in the 129 class with a 340 total. Bradfords Markel Parks placed fifth in the heavyweight class with a 675 total. Keystone had two fifth-place finishers: Josh Knight in the 154 class with a 480 total and Nate Pate in the 199 class with a 505 total. Also competing for Keystone were J.J. Schofield in the 169 class with a 435 total, Matt West in the 183 class with a 510 total, Johnnie Fitts in the 183 class with a 500 total and Joe Pace in the 238 class with a 470 total. Bradfords Zach Windle and Dequan Blackshear competed as well, with Windle compiling a 265 total in the 119 class and Blackshear compiling a 440 total in the 154 class.

Being a part of season seven of History Channels Ax Men has given Sims an outlet to talk about the disease she lives with through interviews, public appearances and discussions on her Facebook page. However, if her appearance with her fellow Dreadknots teammates at the Bradford County Fair was any indication, the show has also been a lot of fun to be a part of. Sims, Clint Capt. Clint Roberts and Dave the Kraken Stone exhibited the kind of playful camaraderie that takes years to develop, though Sims completed just her first season as a member of the Dreadknot team. When Sims gives an answer to the Telegraph-Times-Monitor in response to being asked what has been most enjoyable about being on the show, Roberts cut Sims and Ax Men: cuttin up and talkin CFin and said, What she meant to say was, Working with Clint has been the greatest experience of my life. Sims, cracking a smile, added, And, He has the greatest moustache in the world. Stone was asked why someone whos never watched Ax Men should tune it. His response? Because we are awesome as a group. If you want to see what awesome personified is, you turn the channel to 269 on DirecTV on Sunday nights. Not missing a beat, Sims chips in that the word awesome in the dictionary is accompanied by a photo of her, Roberts and Stone. Sims was approached about possibly being on the show at the Suwannee River Jam. (She was the reigning Miss Suwannee River Jam at the time.) I never really wanted to be on TV, Sims said, but when the See SIMS, 8B Katelyn Cuz Sims and her fellow Ax Men Dreadknots, Capt. Clint and the Kraken, were at the fair on March 14, signing autographs and posing for pictures.

What was wonderful about this death, this crucifixion? It was wonderful because sin was judged and my and your sin was paid for. But if this week ended at the cross it would be a sad and incomplete conclusion. Yes three days later death couldnt keep its hold on Jesus. You see on Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

He passed away later that night. He was a great dog and will be missed. Although we have our Thanks for support during pet tragedythe dedication and skills of so many great coaches, fans, administrators, and players covering many decades. So, I began to ask myself: If there were a Mount Rushmore for BHS Football, which four faces would be on display in a chiseled granite tribute? It is a difficult question to ponder. So many deserve consideration that it would be unfair to narrow it to just four. While I have enjoyed a long relationship with BHS football, I readily admit that my working knowledge is limited in relation to its vast history. There were phenomenal coaches and players prior to the 1960s that could stake a claim to being featured on our Mount Rushmore. Guys like Coach J.C. Hobbs and players such as Jack Hazen enjoy legendary status among those who have extended memories. But, this is my blog so I will limit my picks to those who were part of the landscape from the mid-50s and beyond. The first member of the BHS Rushmore quartet? Coach Lennard Register had the Tornado football program hummin like a well-oiled machine during his tenure (195561). Five consecutive Keystone The following, written by Terry Vaughan as a WEAG Bradford High School Tornado football blog, was submitted for publication by former BHS football coach Lennard Register. As I approach my 29th year as voice of Tornado football on Eagle Country 106.3, I often find myself waxing nostalgic with memories of those who built the Tornado program brick-bybrick, stone-by-stone. Our rich history was crafted through Dear Editor: This legislative session initially was being billed as the Year of Water, aiming to strengthen state protection of Floridas 700plus natural springs.   Instead, it appears the legislatures annual embarrassing and inadequate environmental performance is right on track. Speaker of the House Will Weatherford is blocking badly needed legislation, kicking the can down the road for another year, claiming that his successor, Rep. Steve Crisafulli, (R Merritt Island), has more expertise on the issue.   More troubling, Weatherford doesnt even want to consider the Senate Springs Protection Bill, claiming disingenuously that the House has its own legislation, when in fact it has nothing   at all like the excellent and comprehensive Senate Plan. Normally, in an election year, Legislatures Year of Water not living up to namethe legislatures mantra is to do no harm.   Weatherfords doing nothing; calling for another study and refusing to consider legislation, when the reasons and solution to our water woes have long been well known and scientifically demonstrated, is damaging and irresponsible; being harmful to Floridas economy, quality of life and our endangered water resources while protecting special interests and campaign contributors.   Terry Brant, Legislative Chairman Santa Fe Lake Dwellers Association Melrose Conference Crowns and a 32 game winning streak were among the highlights of a great run. It is unfortunate that the State did not have a championship playoff system back then, as Bradford would have likely filled a trophy case with even more treasured hardware under Coach Register. To the right of Coach Register would be the face of the Coach who replaced him in Starke. David Hurse was the loyal Lieutenant under Coach R, and was ready to grab the wheel when it was his turn to guide the ship. Thirty years later, his bag of accomplishments was full-to include two State Championship Crowns and one runner-up designation. Coach Hurses long tenure and lasting success made him the face of Bradford Football-and this is why it should be prominently displayed on the Mount-as is his name on the stadium. My next selection? Assistant Coaches rarely get enough credit for a programs success and sustainability. While David Hurse was the unquestioned top dog while at BHS, there is no doubt that his long-time Assistant was the guy who put the teeth in an always ferocious Tornado Defense. Mike Sextons Defenses were typically undersized-but still struck fear in the hearts of opposing coaches. Mikes emphasis on fundamentals and toughness earned the respect of all who played for or against him-and this state may have never produced a better High School Defensive Coordinator. Who gets the final spot? Larry Browns impact on Bradford Football reverberated well beyond the field. Larry was among the first to break the color barrier at BHS during a difficult time in our countrys history-and he wore the Scarlet and Gray uniform in a proud and dignified way. He later matriculated to the University of Kansas under Pepper Rogers where he was teammates with pro football greats such as John Riggins and Bobby Douglass. A 5th round draft pick of the Pittsburg Steelers/Larry finished his pro career with four Super Bowl rings and All-Pro status. He excelled at both Tight End and Offensive Tackle for the Steelers. Register....Hurse.....Sexton.... Brown. Four faces that certainly deserve to be featured on Bradford Footballs Mount Rushmore. They are four-of-akind in that their contributions to the program then and now remain rock solid.Who would be on BHS footballs Mt. Rushmore?suspicions and have filed a police report, it is very unlikely the culprit will be discovered unless they admit to it. We would like to thank most of our nearby neighbors for their help and support that day and the day after.   We are firm believers in karma and we know that God sees all.

Thursday, April 17, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 5B I am a Senior this year and this was my last time showing at the Bradford County Fair. I have exhibited Swine for the last 10 years. In these years I have accomplished and reached goals from winning Showmanship to winning Grand Champion, to earning my State FFA Degree as a Junior. It is now time that I leave and let someone else take my place and I hope that the community supports him/her as they have supported me. I owe a SPECIAL THANKS to my producer; Mike, Beth, and Bud Williams, of Williams Show Pigs. During these years, I was mentored and given the knowledge and skills which enabled me to select quality show pigs, along with the many aspects of having a swine farm. I was given the knowledge to start my own herd as well as breed my gilt by A-Iing. Ive raised a litter of pigs, fitting them to be exhibited, and they were shown and sold in Indiana. The expertise I gained from the Williams helped me place First in FFA Swine Proficiency for the State of Florida, earning me a trip to the FFA National Convention in Louisville, KY and allowed me to compete Nationally. I won Gold at the National level, which placed me in the top six in the nation.. THANK YOU, Mr. Mike, Mrs. Beth, and Mr. Bud for the love, friendship, knowledge, guidance, and support you all have given me. I hope someone takes my place and accomplishes as much or more than I have through all the help you all are willing to offer. I would like to thank my many buyers, many who have supported me from my first show to my last; Williams Show Pigs, Rays Metal Works, First Coast Florida Recovery, A&M Recovery, Stricks Properties, Crossfire Electric, Pipeline Contractors, Malcolm & Edith Hill, WW Gay, North Florida Truck and Tractor Repair, Wynns Farms, Kim Griffis, NaNa, Paw Paw, Vaunda & Bill Blankenship, Vystar Credit Union, GC&G, JFC Services, Prestige Electric, Mosley Tire, Revels Fast Lube, Matt Bryant, Bradford Salvage, and Gainesville Restoration.

being taken out of local lakes, but their days are limited. Kingsley has given up the largest ones this season, but Mike Clemmons has done his best to keep Sampson/Rowell well represented. Within the last few weeks he has landed one 8-plus-pound and one 9-pluspound bedding female out of the dual-lake area. We also previously published a photograph of Kaylee Fowler and a bass of approximately 10 pounds.   Subsequent to that catch, relatives from GeorgiaPete Mangham and Tommy Fowler caught similar bass in the same private lake. The pan fish are in the process of swapping locations.   The specks have fewer numbers in the shallow water, but those that are caught appear larger, according to Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle. As the water warms, they will be seeking their preferred cooler water in deeper areas. As they move outward, When Lamar Williams was asked if he knew any local hunter who had scored a wild turkey grand slam, he said, Go see Tommy Harper. Hes a great turkey hunter and loves to travel and hunt. Im sure he has. Well, it turns out that Harper has scored a grand slam 11 times, meaning that he has bagged Eastern, Osceola, Merriam and Rio sub-species of wild turkeys 11 different times.   That does not mean that he has only taken 11 of each, because he and his hunting group have already harvested 11 local turkeys this year. One of Harpers major hunting goals is to travel to Mexico and take a Gould turkey.   That achievement would give him the right to claim credit for a royal slam. When asked what his favorite turkey is, he said, Probably the Merriam because they are so pretty.   The amount of white color distribution on their wings and tail make them a beautiful bird. Union County High Schools Kristen Cook and Nancy Slocum qualified for regional competition with their fourthplace performances at the District 5-2A track and field meet, which was held April 10 in Gainesville. The top four finishers in each event earned the right to move on to the April 16 Region 2 meet at First Academy in Orlando. Cook will advance in the shot put after a fourth-place distance of 31-3.75, earning the last regional berth ahead of Fort Whites Rykia Jackson, who had a distance of 30-5. Slocums time of 28.03 in the 200m earned the last regional berth ahead of Palatkas Kari Rasher, who had a time of 28.14. Cook just missed out on qualifying in the discus with a fifth-place throw of 89-3. Keaaris Ardley won the highjump championship, while fellow Bradford High School teammates helped the Tornadoes qualify for regionals in five other events at the District 5-2A track and field meet on April 10 in Gainesville. Ardley cleared 6-2 in the high jump, which was 6 inches better than runner-up William Barlow of Palatka. The top four finishers in each event qualified for the April 16 Region 2 meet at Orlandos First Academy. Bradfords Kenny Dinkins was the district runner-up in the 400m with a time of 49.63, which placed him behind champion Kaven Berry of Palatka, who had a time of 49.07. The boys 4x400m relay team of Ardley, Dinkins, Chris Barron and Brenton Ruise placed third with a time of 3:38.80. Diontre Jonas placed third in the 200m with a time of 22.59 and fourth in the 100m with a time of 11.03. Sarah Frederick earned the lone regional berth for Bradford on the girls side, placing fourth in the 1600m with a time of 6:21.72. Frederick just missed qualifying in the 3200m, placing fifth with a time of 15:49.62.

The boys 4x800m relay team of Kristopher Padgett, Taylor Sanders, Robert Martin and Tyler Oliver placed sixth with a time of 10:31.39. Ardley placed seventh in the long jump (18-10), while Alec Harden was seventh in the to her background, having grown up around logging because of her father, David. She knows what shes doing, Stone said. She can run a chainsaw. She can run a knuckleboom (crane). Shes 100 percent the real deal. Though Sims hit it right off with her fellow Dreadknots, it took a little longer to get used to being surrounded by a television crew. When you first start filming, you kind of have to work around everybody on the film crew and everybody on the boat, Sims said, but then a couple of weeks into it, its just like you push them out of your way, or they will get out of your way. Sims described the experience of seeing herself on TV for the first time awkward. Roberts said its one of those strange moments along with someone who youve never met before excited about the chance to meet you. Those are all the surreal moments, Roberts said. The same can be said for seeing yourself doing something on camera that you dont remember doing. Ive got a line about the Titanic that I have no recollection of saying whatsoever, Roberts said. I said it, and it was great, but I dont remember saying it. You could forgive any of the Dreadknots for forgetting something they said or did. Stone said six hours of aired footage has been culled from approximately 1,400 hours of video. Its crazy to actually see what they used, what they didnt use, what they shouldve used and what we wished they wouldve used, Stone said. There is lots of hilarious footage that TV viewers never get to see, Roberts said. Like the Slip N Slide, which Roberts described as awesome. It was a Slip N Slide that went from the hotel to the ocean, lets just put it that way, Stone said. Since joining the show for its seventh season, Sims has proven to be quite popular. Her Facebook page has approximately 8,000 followers. Thats no surprise to Roberts, who joked that Sims was bound to become popular hanging out with him and Stone. Awesome begets awesome, Roberts said. Sims quickly added, When youve got three awesome things happening at one time, youve got greatness. Thats what weve gotgreatness. Roberts said hes glad to see how popular Sims has become. I told Katelyn when she came on that I hoped she took off and that this was the springboard to something great for her. The popularity, the clowning around, the Slip N Slidesits all good, but what Sims enjoys the most is using Ax Men and her Facebook site to talk about cystic fibrosis. Reading encouraging messages from people or being able to enlighten people about cystic fibrosis tops being a TV celebrity. I feel like Im making people aware of (cystic fibrosis), Sims said. Theyll always send a message, Hey, I heard you have this, or, I Googled your name, and I saw this CF thing about you. They ask questions about it. When they ask questions, youre obviously educating them about it, which is an awesome feeling, knowing that youre telling them something they didnt know before. The more people are educated about cystic fibrosis, the quicker the disease can be eliminated, Roberts said. He and Stone are willing to help Sims do whatever it takes to bring about that reality. Anything that can possibly be done, you sign us up, were there, Stone said. The people of Bradford County have greatly supported her in her fundraising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, said Sims, whose efforts helped create an annual Great Strides fundraising walk. Making an appearance at the Bradford County Fair and bringing Roberts and Stone along with her is just a small way of saying thanks, she said. It may not be much, but its a little bit to give back, Sims said. Sims said she would definitely consider other TV opportunities in the future so that she can continue in her efforts to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis. For now, though, she sounds happy to be a part of Ax Men as long as the show will have her. Its just something that you go and do every day just like any other job, Sims said. Its the same routine every day. Its normal to me. Well, as normal as spending time with Capt. Clint and the Kraken can be. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 17, 2014 THE BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH Since 1879 Thank YouHeather, Joan & Lindafor aGreat Job!

April 11 in the BHS media center. I was jumping up and down on the couch, Parks said, describing his reaction to Tabors offer. Tabor, as a private, Christian college, offers more than just the chance to play at the next level. I like the values this school offers, Parks said. Its a heavy Christian school. Thats what I really like about it. Prior to high school, Parks had never played football, but he said he decided to give it a try since all his friends in ninth grade were playing. At first, I hated it, Parks said, noting that he particularly didnt enjoy the practices in the Florida heat. However, the more he played, the more the sport grew on him. I started to love it, he said. Bradford head coach Steve Reynolds said the Parks best attributes are his size and strength. Hes a huge person thats difficult to move around, Reynolds said. Plus, as someone who didnt begin playing until his freshman year, he has a lot of upside. We think he has a lot of raw talent to offer, Reynolds said. Reynolds said Parks made huge strides his junior season and proved versatile this past season, moving into the noseguard position after the graduation of Phillip James. He did a great job with that, Reynolds said. When asked to describe how he thinks hell feel when he steps onto the field for the first time as a Tabor player, Parks said, Ill probably feel how I felt my freshman year (at BHS) when I stepped on the field. (Ill have) butterflies. Initial nerves aside, theres no reason to think that Parks game wont continue to develop. If he gets there early, applies himself throughout the summer and learns the system, I dont see why he cant get on the field next year, Reynolds said. I think hes got a bright future ahead of him. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer He didnt like football when he first began playing in ninth grade, but Bradford High School senior Markel Parks eventually fell in love with the sport. Now, hes got the chance to extend his playing days, signing a letter of intent to play at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan. Parks, a defensive lineman, received an offer from the school in the mail not long before signing his official paperwork during a signing ceremony on Bradfords Parks signs to play football at Tabor Collegeof the programs first signees. Its just exciting to be with a new program because youre going to be the first team to actually set the tone for the next couple of years, Collins, a second baseman/shortstop, said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School middle infielder Wyatt Collins will be part of building a new baseball program after signing a letter of intent to play at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville. Its just exciting to put all my work toward baseball, and now its finally paying off, Collins said after an April 11 signing ceremony in the BHS media center. Im just glad I get to play baseball at the collegiate level. Trinity announced earlier this year it was adding baseball to its athletic program.

working with her and taking (her game) to the next level, White said. Skinner said she hopes she can get the chance to play elsewhere following two years at St. Petersburg. Jolley has no doubts about that happening. I really dont think shell go just two years, Jolley said. I think once those two years are up, shell keep going. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was perhaps a late start compared to many college-bound athletes, but Keystone Heights High School senior Keerston Skinner turned just four years of volleyball into an opportunity at the next level, courtesy of St. Petersburg College. Skinner admitted that she never thought shed have the opportunity to play at the collegiate level. Im excited, she said, following an April 7 signing ceremony in the KHHS media center. Im thankful that (St. Petersburg coach Scott White) signed me. The front-row player had never played the sport prior to her freshman year and cant really say why she wanted to start playing. Honestly, I dont know, Skinner said. I really dont. I saw it one day, and I was like, Thats what I want to do. Once she began playing, she totally immersed herself into the sport. She eats, sleeps and breathes volleyball, Keystone head coach Nikki Jolley said. Im not kidding. She loves it. During her senior season, Skinner had matches where she recorded 10 and 11 kills against bigger schools Ridgeview and Palatka. She also had a 13-kill, six service-ace performance in a win over Fort White late in the season and tallied 13 kills in a loss to Santa Fe in the semifinals of the District 5-4A tournament. Now, Skinner gets to see what she can do beyond high school, an opportunity Jolley described as amazing. She is a wonderful person all the way around, Jolley said. No one deserves it more than her. St. Petersburg coach Scott White said Skinner as a big, strong kid hes eager to have as a part of his team.

Hes a high-character kid, Martinez said. Thats really what were aiming for. The baseball part of it will take care of itself. Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan said Collins has put in the effort necessary to be successful. Now, that effort has led to an opportunity to play after high school. Its good when a kid sets a goal, works toward that goal and then you see him accomplish that, Duncan said. Hes a good kid. Duncan said Collins is KHHS senior Keerston Skinner signs her letter of intent to play volleyball at St. Petersburg College. She is seated between her mother, Singletary, and St. Petersburg head coach Scott White.COLLINSContinued from 11B versatile enough to be able to play anywhere. Hes fast enough to play in the outfield, but when it comes to Collins play in the infield, Duncan said, He reads the ball good off the bat. He usually positions himself to catch a good ball instead of letting the ball play him. Hes got good, fundamental footwork. Hes accurate on his throws. Hes as good as has been here in a while. Duncan said Collins should thrive after taking part in Trinity Baptists conditioning program designed for baseball players only. I think hell be fine, Duncan said. Hes a hard worker. Whatever is asked of him, he does, and he usually goes beyond that. Collins cant wait to step onto the field for the first time as a Trinity Baptist player. I think its going to be a really nervous and amazing feeling, he said.

Clay County crews responded to a 911 call at 3:59 a.m. A Keystone Heights engine and rescue squad arrived at the scene nine minutes later and gained control of the fire. According to a Clay County official, the blaze had already destroyed much of the structure prior to the arrival of the Keystone Heights units, no occupants or firefighters were injured and the structure is a total loss. The cause of the blaze is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal and is considered suspicious. Lake Region children scramble for Easter eggs at Azalea Park Keystone High School student dies from accident BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A Keystone Heights High School senior died after he was hit by a pickup truck the morning of April 11. Shane Savoy, 18, of El Dorado Avenue was walking with another student, 17-year old Elin Cornett when the vehicle approached them.

The accident occurred near the intersection of El Dorado Avenue and C.R. 214 around 6:30 a.m. Sheriffs office public information coordinator Mary Justino said that the two were walking on the edge of the road and the driver of the pickup did not see them in time to avoid hitting them.

Lake Region man was in Secret Service for 23 years BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A former Secret Service agent recounted his years with the federal agency during a Keystone Heights Rotary Club meeting on April 11. Tom Dailey joined the Treasury Department branch shortly after graduating from Florida State University in 1965. After retiring from the Secret Service, he spent an additional 16 years in law enforcement with the Clay County Sheriffs Office. Dailey started in the Jacksonville field office in 1965. After one year, he transferred to Boston, and then to the White House detail where he was assigned to protect Julie Nixon, Vice President Richard Nixons daughter. For a year and a half, he and his fellow agents protected the vice presidents daughter while she was a student at Smith College in Massachusetts. He then transferred to Washington, where he served on the White House detail after Richard Nixon was elected president, then spent 15 years in the Washington field office before returning to Jacksonville to complete his career. Dailey is active in the Association of Former Agents of the U.S. Secret Service, and meets twice a year with his former colleagues during association reunions. Dailey told the Rotary Club that the agency started in 1865. The service was originally a branch of the U.S. Treasury Department and was responsible for combatting counterfeiting. Dailey said that in 1865, most states issued their own currencies and two-thirds of the currency in circulation was fraudulent. He also said that during his time in the service, the agency investigated fraudulent Social Security checks and other counterfeits of U.S. Treasury documents. Dailey added that when he retired in 1987, identity theft, computer fraud, electronic funds transfer fraud and other technology based crimes were beginning to emerge. The Secret Service started protecting presidents in 1906, following the 1901 assassination of President William McKinley. Dailey said the scope of the agencys protection assignments have changed constantly and continue to change. He said spouses to the president and vice president were offered lifetime protection. Later, former presidents and foreign dignitaries visiting the U.S. were also offered protection. After the Bobby Kennedy assassination, he said, we picked up protecting candidates. Dailey said he spent time on Ronald Reagans detail when the California governor ran for president in 1968. Reagan was Richard Nixons chief rival for the Republican nomination that year. Reagan supporters had planned to challenge Nixons candidacy at the Republican National Convention in Miami by uniting with the backers of candidate Nelson Rockefeller. However, the strategy fell apart when the two men refused to support one another for the nomination. Nixon won the nomination on the first ballot and selected Maryland Governor Spiro Agnew as his running mate I took him (Reagan) into the Miami convention, recalled Dailey. We left the next day with Spiro Agnew. Dailey remained on the Agnew detail through the rest of the 1968 campaign. In 1976, after the Emir of Iran faced hostile crowds during a visit to New York, the agency was assigned to protect foreign heads of state. Dailey said one notable foreign leader he was assigned to was King Hussein of Jordan, who carried an automatic weapon and flew his own aircraft. Dailey said the Secret Service has undergone sharp changes since his days with the agency. He said he disagreed with the decision to move the agency from the Treasury Department to Homeland Security. He also said that most agents now are short timers, aiming to remain in the Secret Service for two to three years before moving onto other opportunities. I spent 23 years with them, he said. Most people back then Tom Dailey (left) escorts Vice Presidential candidate and Maryland Governor Spiro Agnew into the St. Petersburg studios of WLCY-TV (now WTSP) in 1968. See SERVICE, 4A CCUA: water use down 19 percent BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Utility Authority said it is pumping 19 percent less water from Florida Aquifers now than it did in 2009, even though the utility has 2,399 more customers than it did in February of that year. CCUAs managers credited the utilitys tiered rate structure for the decrease in water use. The plan, implemented in 2010, charges customers a higher pergallon rate as they use more water. The utility said 67.2 percent of its residential customers use no more than the tier 1 allowance of 6,000 gallons per month, and that those customers use an average of 3,248 gallons per month. In its March conservation rate structure assessment, the organizations staff said that rainfall through February had been normal and that when See WATER, 6A Keystone students sweep steer show KHHS students earn ribbons at fair High School career students display skills at fair Middleburg student places first in state science fair FWC: Watch out for bears Commission marks child abuse preven tion month Commissioners: Share the road MADD: Talk to chil dren about under age drinking Digital campaign signs approved Home business rule changes ap proved Hilton manager ap pointed to tourism council Report: Four utili ties made $18 mil lion in political do nations TPO begins public hearings for longrange transporta tion plan DOT puts C.R. 225 on priority list Putnam Hall re members beloved couple Trinity Baptist pres ents passion play Missionary teaches at Easter egg hunt Clay sergeant grad uates from leader ship academy CCSO officers train to help children with autism Alachua County Sheriffs Office rec ognizes communi cations officers Sports Obituaries Social news Letters to the editor

Commission marks child abuse prevention month BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County commissioners proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention month. Commissioner Diane Hutchings read the proclamation which acknowledged the role Kids First of Florida plays in helping neglected and abused children in Clay County. Kids First is a community based nonprofit which delivers foster care, adoption, protective supervision and other services to families. Hutchings said Florida is home to over 4 million children and that the abuse and neglect of children can cause severe, costly and lifelong problems affecting all of society, including physical and mental health problems, school failure and criminal behavior. She also said a working partnership between law enforcement, government agencies, nonprofits and businesses is key to preventing child neglect and abuse. Commissioners: Share the road BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County Commissioners urged motorists to share the road with bikers in proclaiming May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month during their April 8 meeting. Commissioner Doug Conkey said that as the weather becomes more spring-like, more bikers are taking to the road to enjoy a great hobby. All too often, he added, as we see on the news almost on a weekly basis, tragic accidents occur that involve motorcycles. Conkey reminded attendees of the county commission meeting that bikers have little protection in collisions and that motorists should be aware of bikers around them. In reading the proclamation, he said that over 800,000 twowheelers are now registered in Florida, and that motorcycles are more frequently becoming the primary means of transportation for many residents. The decree also acknowledged the Black Creek Chapter of American Bikers Aiming Toward Education as a leading group promoting motorcycle safety in Clay County. Mike Coduto, of the Black Creek chapter accepted the proclamation on behalf of the group. He said the chapter is planning a major motorcycle safety event at the Jacksonville Landing on May 10. He invited the crowd to join the organization, as well as the Florida Highway Patrol, Jacksonville Sheriffs Office, and Lt. Ron Hodges of the Clay County Sheriffs Office to the afternoon event. MADD: Talk to children about underage drinking BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A representative of Mothers Against Drunk Driving told Clay County commissioners about the importance of parents talking to their children about underage drinking. Judy Cotton, a program specialist with MADD, was on hand at the commissions April 8 meeting to receive a proclamation endorsing MADDs Powertalk 21 program. Powertalk 21 is a nationwide effort by the organization to encourage parents to talk to their children about the risks of drinking before reaching age 21. The campaign stretches from April 1 to April 21. MADD has nothing against alcohol, she said. I dont want anybody to think thats the agenda here today. We just want to make sure that people wait until they are 21 and that they never, ever get behind the wheel of a vehicle, here in Clay County or anywhere else, if they become impaired. Commissioner Ronnie Robinson, who read the proclamation supporting Powetalk 21 said that all drivers license applicants should be required to attend a MADD meeting. He added that he has dropped in on a few meetings and found them to be beneficial. According to MADD, parents are the number one influencer of childrens decisions about alcohol and teens are 80 percent less likely to drink if their parents tell them clearly it is unacceptable. Digital campaign signs approved BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Clay County Commission approved changes to its sign code, expanding the size of acceptable political yard signs and also allowing political messages on digital billboards, without the size limitations of conventional campaign displays. The planning commission also recommended county commissioners restrict the use of banners to grand openings and mobile business use. However Commissioner Diane Hutchings, who asked the planning commission to restrict banner use withdrew that section of the revision. She said the restriction might prohibit activities she had not intended to impede, such as the practice of churches advertising Vacation Bible Schools with temporary banners. Doug Conkey also said he had concerns about the banner limitation. He wanted to know how the revision would affect banners hung on the fences of little league baseball fields. Commissioners also sent another recommendation back to the planning panel for further discussion: a provision prohibiting the placement of campaign signs on parcels which host precincts. County Manager Stephanie Kopelousos said her staff added the provision based on the volume of complaints from residents about campaign signs at polling locations. I was shocked at the number of people who complained about how many signs (were at precincts), she said. Kopelousos added that motorists complained some of the placards were getting caught under vehicles and others had fallen into the roadway and were run over by traffic. Commissioner Wendell Davis said the proliferation of signs at voting locations created a safety risk. There were so many signs in front of the Fleming Island Library that people couldnt find the driveway to turn in he said. And then if they did, then they had to run over somebody waving a sign. And if they got by that, then they had to see around the tent that was in the middle of the parking lot. Davis also said he witnessed some near fender benders at the precinct within the Orange Park library on Plainfield Avenue because of signs and overcrowding. The commission agreed with Conkeys suggestion that instead of banning campaign signs at polling locations, they ask the planning commission to recommend a limit on such signs, similar to the rule already existing on residential yard signs, which limit the number of signs on each parcel to one candidate or issue. Home business rule changes approved BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County commissioners approved a recommendation by the planning board expanding the use of home occupations under the countys zoning rules. Holly Parrish, director of economic and development services told commissioners Clay County is only one of seven northeast Florida counties that currently restrict home occupations to clerical and administrative services. She also said the county stands alone by prohibiting commercial activity in accessory buildings within agricultural neighborhoods. Under the new rules, some athome industries are still banned, including auto and appliance repair and barber and beauty shops. Commissioner Ronnie Robinson reminded his colleagues that they dealt with the home business issue several months ago when a Keystone Heights-area resident requested permission to operate a plant nursery from a parcel zoned agriculture-residential. Weve got people that have been doing this for years anyway on this type of property, he said. I dont know why its our place to say you cant do it to start with. Commissioner Doug Conkey said he recently attended a neighborhood meeting where he heard complaints that a suspected home business was creating excessive traffic on a small street. Especially if you have two, three or four homes on a small street, he said, the impact is magnified. Hilton manager appointed to tourism council BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County commissioners appointed the director of sales at the Hilton Garden Inn of Jacksonville and Orange Park to the countys tourism development committee. Becky Schaeffer will fill the term of Brenna Van Ness who moved out of the state earlier this year. The term runs through March 9, 2015. Schaeffer brings more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry to the council. She is active in the Clay County Chamber of Commerce, is a member of the culinary and hospitality advisory board for the Clay County School District and is a member of the culinary advisory board at Florida State College at Jacksonville. In her application for the position, Schaeffer wrote, I moved to Orange Park after gaining the position at the HGI OP in October 2011. As an over the Buckman first timer, I had to learn fast about what was over, around, near and cool about the area so that I could gain the edge when selling to soccer moms, wedding clients, family reunion planners, Navy support personnel and business travelers of all kinds. I have come away from living over here for two years with a great love for all of the parks, hiking trails and natural beauty of the county. Kathy D. White, general manager of Stay Suites of America in Orange Park also applied for the open seat on the council. Commissioner Doug Conkey, who serves on the TDC as the non-voting chair, recommended Schaeffer for the post. Both are wonderful candidates, he said, but I think Ms. Schaeffer brings a lot of expertise to the TDC. Report: Four utilities made $18 million in political donations BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A report by a research institute and government watchdog said Floridas largest electric providers made over $18 million in political contributions from 2004 to 2012. The report, Power Play: Political Influence of Floridas Top Energy Corporations, by Florida Integrity said the states four largest electric utilities, Florida Power and Light, Duke Energy, Tampa Electric and Gulf Power contributed mostly to the Florida Republican and Democratic parties. The document also claimed that the four companies spent over $12 million on 601 lobbyists from 2007 to 2013. The report also claimed that the industrys influence in Tallahassee played a role in the ouster of four Public Service Commission members who voted against rate hikes proposed by FPL and Progress Energy (now Duke Energy) in 2010. Four of the five PSC commissioners voted against the FPL and Progress Energy rate hikes, the report said. All four of those commissioners lost their jobs within a few months. The paper recommended several reforms, including drafting uniform ethics rules for legislators and local officials, putting inspector general reports, gift and client disclosures made by state lawmakers and regulators online and making campaign donations from vendors and state regulated industries more transparent.

It was a good career, he said of his time in the Secret Service. I dont miss any of the work. I dont miss any of the jobs. I dont miss any of the long hours. I dont miss any of the trips-the anniversaries that I missed; the child births that I missed. But I do miss the people. SERVICE Continued from 1A On April 15, the Alachua County Sheriffs Office joined other law enforcement agencies around the country in observing National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. In a press release, the sheriffs office said that every day, millions of people in the United States depend on the skill, expertise and commitment of the men and women who work in public safety telecommunications. These individuals help save countless lives by responding to emergency calls, dispatching emergency professionals and providing moral support to citizens in distress. Last year in Alachua County, the combined communications center answered 146,753 911 calls and 261,563 administrative calls, while dispatching 307,747 calls for service to sheriffs deputies, Gainesville police, Alachua County Fire Rescue, Gainesville Fire Rescue, rural contracted municipal fire departments, and the Waldo Police Department. On April 15, the communications center presented a static display with its partner agencies, highlighting the mobile technology public safety officers use in the field.

The classes trained deputies to identify and approach children with autism who have wandered or run away, in order to prevent a tragedy. Lauren Papke, a pediatric speech-language pathologist with Wolfson Childrens Rehabilitation Services led the effort to train the CCSO officers. She began to look into the training after a parent of one of her patients, a 6-year-old child with autism, shared her anxiety about her sons safety at school. He has wandered away from his classroom several times, and has been found in the school parking lot or in a closet in another part of the school, Papke recalled. The mother of a Boy Scout in Clay County, Papke asked one of her sons Scout leaders, who is a Clay County Sheriffs Office deputy, if his training on dealing with runaways included how to identify and rescue a child with autism who had eloped. When the officer said it didnt, Papke and her colleague, pediatric occupational therapist Courtney Ward decided to help. They discovered that although there are major resources for police officers around the country on interacting with children with autism, there were none on the First Coast. Elopement, the act of wandering away and getting lost is one the most serious problems facing caregivers of autistic children. Many children who elope become victims of traffic accidents or drowning. Papke said children with autism react differently to law enforcement officers than other children. They may not respond to the officers orders, which could be interpreted as defiance, or they may bolt into water or traffic to escape the situation, she said. In other cities, this has resulted in drowning and traffic-related deaths. The most common elopement risks seen in these children are: Bolting to get away from a situation the child wants to avoid, such as loud noise or a crowd; Goal-directed elopement, when a child with autism is fascinated and attracted to water, traffic, trains and other potentially dangerous situations without recognizing the risk and Boundary-setting issues, not understanding the boundaries of home, school or other familiar settings. Ward said that around 350 children are enrolled in the autism program in the Clay County School District. Papke and Ward trained officers on everything from a modified search and rescue for a missing child with autism, to reunification with parents and other caregivers. Lt. Kenneth Wagner with the Professional Services Division/ Training Section Office of the Clay County Sheriffs Office welcomed the classes. We are always looking for ideas for expanding the training we provide our members, he said. I am sure there are ways our deputies can improve their interactions with special needs residents, including those with autism. Papke and Ward said they hope to also offer training to other first responders, parents and teachers about the dangers of elopement behaviors in children with autism. Ninety-one percent of deaths associated with people with autism are associated with drowning, secondary to elopement, noted Ward. Clay sergeant graduates from leadership academy Law Enforcements leadership academy on April 11. Johnson has been with the CCSO since June of 1996. He has served as a deputy, investigator, Operation Safe Streets supervisor, communications sergeant and patrol sergeant. He has a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Barry University.

Supervisor Mike Vallencourt questioned the reports assertion that February rainfall totals were slightly below normal. I dont see anything in February that was normal, he said. Weve been in nothing but a constant rain pattern and I can show you whatever report you want to look at. Where does this normal come from? I do not agree that we are in any type of a normal weather pattern. Executive Director Tom Morris said normal rainfall was an average of National Weather Service data over the past 10 years. Morris also said that the National Weather Service computes average rainfall from gauges at the Jacksonville International Airport, which is 34 miles from CCUA offices in Middleburg. He added that even between the utilitys own plants, recorded rainfall varies greatly. Supervisor Frank Gerwe said he also questioned the accuracy of the rainfall findings in the conservation report. It seems to me, if we are going to be making recommendations on where we are going to go with our rates, if necessary, we need to have data thats a little more accurate, he said. FWC: Watch out for bears The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds the public to be aware that bears are now or soon will be on the move as they are leaving their winter dens. There are important things people can do over the next few months to reduce negative interactions with Floridas largest land mammal. Now is the time to expect bears to show up looking for food, said Dave Telesco, who directs the FWCs bear management program. If they cant find food in your neighborhood, theyll move on. Female bears that gave birth to cubs that were only 12 ounces in January are beginning to move around with their babies, which are now around 5 pounds. As the cubs continue to grow, the family unit will roam farther and could be more visible to people. While black bears generally are not aggressive, a mother bear may try to defend her cubs. Never intentionally approach a bear. Do not assume when you see a lone adult bear that there are no cubs, because the cubs may be hidden nearby. When walking dogs, keep them close and be aware of your surroundings. Dogs can trigger defensive behaviors from bears. Keep human sources of food, like garbage, birdseed and pet food, secure from bears so they wont wander into your neighborhood this spring looking for an easy meal. Use a bear-resistant trash can, build a bear-resistant trash can shed or modify your existing trash can with hardware to make it more resistant. Instructions for these methods, plus a video on how to use an electric fence to deter bears can be found at www. pinterest.com/myfwc/bearnecessities/. If you do not have a bearresistant garbage can, consider building a bear-resistant trash can shed. In Collier County, the FWC is partnering with local Boy Scout volunteers to build sheds that will deter bears from accessing garbage. The FWC received a grant from the Wildlife Foundation of Florida, using proceeds from the Conserve Wildlife license plate, to build and install 70 bearresistant wooden trash can sheds for residents of two East Naples mobile home parks, who have no other way to keep their garbage away from bears. As females and cubs increase their movements this time of year, they also increase the number of roads they cross. For the safety of yourself and bears, remember to slow down when driving, particularly on rural highways at dawn or dusk. Watch for road signs identifying bear crossing areas. Over 200 Florida bears were killed after being hit by vehicles in 2013. Having conflicts with bears? Call one of the FWCs five regional offices. Go to MyFWC. com/Contact, and click on Regional Offices to find the phone number for your region. Need to report someone harming bears or intentionally feeding them?

Over 200 cast and crew members participated in the event, which was produced and conducted by the Rev. Scott Stanland. Lenny Williams pops a red balloon during his presentation to children at the third annual Community Easter Egg Hunt in Keystone Heights. Williams used the balloon to illustrate his claim that simply attending church will not provide a way to heaven. He also told parents and children in the Champions Heart Chapel that religion, baptism and being good to attaining eternal life, but death of Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. Williams is a missionary with Hawthornes Camp Good News, a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship of North Central Florida.

opportunity was there, I looked at it as a way to spread awareness and get the word about CF out. Stone said adding Sims to the Dreadknots had to be done. We had to get a good boat driver, somebody who knew what they were doing, somebody who could actually navigate the water proper, Stone said, before adding in practically the same breath, Not to mention shes hot. She aint bad to look at, Roberts agreed. The problem is youve got to beat the boys off the boat. It cuts into your time. In all seriousness, though, Stone said hes never met anyone with a better story to tell than Sims. He said shes by far one of the best people hes ever met and admires the way cystic fibrosis doesnt slow her down. This girl has more heart than anybody Ive ever met in my life, Stone said. Though a newcomer to the Dreadknots team, which has been a part of Ax Men since season six, Sims said she immediately felt right at home. Yeah, from the beginning it was easy for us all to get along, she said. I think the first day that we filmed, Clint and I were joking and laughing about as hard as possible for about 15 minutes. We almost got in trouble with the film crew because we couldnt stop. It was just a natural thing for all of us. We all get along, we all have the same mindset on a lot of things and we all see eye to eye on a lot of things as well. Our personalities are very similar. Stone said one of the best times hes had was just goofing off with Sims on a day in which Roberts had to take his daughter to a school orientation. They spent their time throwing sandwiches back and forth to each other, trying to catch them in their mouths, among other things. We actually wound up paddling the boat backward down the river, Stone said. It was no surprise to Stone that Sims has fit right in. He alluded Keystone Heights High School had four win their weight classes, thus ensuring their spots in the Florida High School Athletic Association Boys Weightlifting Finals, while an additional four lifters from Keystone, Bradford and Union County also earned the right after their performances at the District 4-1A statequalifying meet on April 10 in South Daytona. The winners of each weight class at each of the states qualifying meets earned the right to compete at the state meet, which will be held April 25-26 at the Kissimmee Civic Center. At the District 4 meet, Keystones Dakota Hodge, Lane Blanton, Chase Musselman and Darein Gilio topped their respective classes. Hodge won the 129-pound class with a 405 total (225 bench, 180 clean and jerk), while Blanton had a top total of 485 (240, 245) in the 139 class. Musselman had a 560 total (280, 280) to win the 169 class, while Gilio won the 199 class with a 565 total (300, 265). The totals of the remaining lifters throughout the state who did not place first at district meets were compared to make up the rest of the field at state. Keystones Steven Beverly made the cut after placing second in the 129 class at the District 4 meet. He had a 400 total (210, 190). Bradfords Jarvis DeSue also earned a second-place finish and will move on to state. He compiled a 510 total (275, 235) in the 154 class. Also qualifying for state were Unions Austin Long and Keystones Brandon Johnson. Long placed third in the 129 class at the District 4 meet with a 370 total (205, 165), while Johnson placed fourth in the 154 class with a 500 total (265, 235). Though not qualifying for state, Keystones Dakota Black and Unions Alden McClellon earned top-three places at the District 4 meet. Black was runner-up in the 139 class with a 415 total, while McClellon was third in the 169 class with a 510 total. Unions Dylan Bass placed fourth in the 129 class with a 340 total. Bradfords Markel Parks placed fifth in the heavyweight class with a 675 total. Keystone had two fifth-place finishers: Josh Knight in the 154 class with a 480 total and Nate Pate in the 199 class with a 505 total. Also competing for Keystone were J.J. Schofield in the 169 class with a 435 total, Matt West in the 183 class with a 510 total, Johnnie Fitts in the 183 class with a 500 total and Joe Pace in the 238 class with a 470 total. Bradfords Zach Windle and Dequan Blackshear competed as well, with Windle compiling a 265 total in the 119 class and Blackshear compiling a 440 total in the 154 class.

Being a part of season seven of History Channels Ax Men has given Sims an outlet to talk about the disease she lives with through interviews, public appearances and discussions on her Facebook page. However, if her appearance with her fellow Dreadknots teammates at the Bradford County Fair was any indication, the show has also been a lot of fun to be a part of. Sims, Clint Capt. Clint Roberts and Dave the Kraken Stone exhibited the kind of playful camaraderie that takes years to develop, though Sims completed just her first season as a member of the Dreadknot team. When Sims gives an answer to the Telegraph-Times-Monitor in response to being asked what has been most enjoyable about being on the show, Roberts cut Sims and Ax Men: cuttin up and talkin CF in and said, What she meant to say was, Working with Clint has been the greatest experience of my life. Sims, cracking a smile, added, And, He has the greatest moustache in the world. Stone was asked why someone whos never watched Ax Men should tune it. His response? Because we are awesome as a group. If you want to see what awesome personified is, you turn the channel to 269 on DirecTV on Sunday nights. Not missing a beat, Sims chips in that the word awesome in the dictionary is accompanied by a photo of her, Roberts and Stone. Sims was approached about possibly being on the show at the Suwannee River Jam. (She was the reigning Miss Suwannee River Jam at the time.) I never really wanted to be on TV, Sims said, but when the See SIMS, 8B Katelyn Cuz Sims and her fellow Ax Men Dreadknots, Capt. Clint and the Kraken, were at the fair on March 14, signing autographs and posing for pictures.

What was wonderful about this death, this crucifixion? It was wonderful because sin was judged and my and your sin was paid for. But if this week ended at the cross it would be a sad and incomplete conclusion. Yes three days later death couldnt keep its hold on Jesus. You see on Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

StarkeJournal.com BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School freshman Tessa Ricker has earned the right to display her science project on an international level, earning the right to compete in the April 30-May 5 I-SWEEEP (International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering, Environment Project Olympiad) in Houston and the May 11-16 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles. This is very exciting and intimidating at the same time, Ricker said. Each competition features more than 1,000 participants from more than 70 counties. Itll be a cultural experience, Ricker said. Rickers path began at the county-level competition, where she placed first in the environmental category and earned Overall Best of Show.

He passed away later that night. He was a great dog and will be missed. Although we have our Thanks for support during pet tragedy the dedication and skills of so many great coaches, fans, administrators, and players covering many decades. So, I began to ask myself: If there were a Mount Rushmore for BHS Football, which four faces would be on display in a chiseled granite tribute? It is a difficult question to ponder. So many deserve consideration that it would be unfair to narrow it to just four. While I have enjoyed a long relationship with BHS football, I readily admit that my working knowledge is limited in relation to its vast history. There were phenomenal coaches and players prior to the 1960s that could stake a claim to being featured on our Mount Rushmore. Guys like Coach J.C. Hobbs and players such as Jack Hazen enjoy legendary status among those who have extended memories. But, this is my blog so I will limit my picks to those who were part of the landscape from the mid-50s and beyond. The first member of the BHS Rushmore quartet? Coach Lennard Register had the Tornado football program hummin like a well-oiled machine during his tenure (195561). Five consecutive Keystone The following, written by Terry Vaughan as a WEAG Bradford High School Tornado football blog, was submitted for publication by former BHS football coach Lennard Register. As I approach my 29th year as voice of Tornado football on Eagle Country 106.3, I often find myself waxing nostalgic with memories of those who built the Tornado program brick-bybrick, stone-by-stone. Our rich history was crafted through Dear Editor: This legislative session initially was being billed as the Year of Water, aiming to strengthen state protection of Floridas 700plus natural springs. Instead, it appears the legislatures annual embarrassing and inadequate environmental performance is right on track. Speaker of the House Will Weatherford is blocking badly needed legislation, kicking the can down the road for another year, claiming that his successor, Rep. Steve Crisafulli, (R Merritt Island), has more expertise on the issue. More troubling, Weatherford doesnt even want to consider the Senate Springs Protection Bill, claiming disingenuously that the House has its own legislation, when in fact it has nothing at all like the excellent and comprehensive Senate Plan. Normally, in an election year, Legislatures Year of Water not living up to name the legislatures mantra is to do no harm. Weatherfords doing nothing; calling for another study and refusing to consider legislation, when the reasons and solution to our water woes have long been well known and scientifically demonstrated, is damaging and irresponsible; being harmful to Floridas economy, quality of life and our endangered water resources while protecting special interests and campaign contributors. Terry Brant, Legislative Chairman Santa Fe Lake Dwellers Association Melrose Conference Crowns and a 32 game winning streak were among the highlights of a great run. It is unfortunate that the State did not have a championship playoff system back then, as Bradford would have likely filled a trophy case with even more treasured hardware under Coach Register. To the right of Coach Register would be the face of the Coach who replaced him in Starke. David Hurse was the loyal Lieutenant under Coach R, and was ready to grab the wheel when it was his turn to guide the ship. Thirty years later, his bag of accomplishments was full-to include two State Championship Crowns and one runner-up designation. Coach Hurses long tenure and lasting success made him the face of Bradford Football-and this is why it should be prominently displayed on the Mount-as is his name on the stadium. My next selection? Assistant Coaches rarely get enough credit for a programs success and sustainability. While David Hurse was the unquestioned top dog while at BHS, there is no doubt that his long-time Assistant was the guy who put the teeth in an always ferocious Tornado Defense. Mike Sextons Defenses were typically undersized-but still struck fear in the hearts of opposing coaches. Mikes emphasis on fundamentals and toughness earned the respect of all who played for or against him-and this state may have never produced a better High School Defensive Coordinator. Who gets the final spot? Larry Browns impact on Bradford Football reverberated well beyond the field. Larry was among the first to break the color barrier at BHS during a difficult time in our countrys history-and he wore the Scarlet and Gray uniform in a proud and dignified way. He later matriculated to the University of Kansas under Pepper Rogers where he was teammates with pro football greats such as John Riggins and Bobby Douglass. A 5th round draft pick of the Pittsburg Steelers/Larry finished his pro career with four Super Bowl rings and All-Pro status. He excelled at both Tight End and Offensive Tackle for the Steelers. Register....Hurse.....Sexton.... Brown. Four faces that certainly deserve to be featured on Bradford Footballs Mount Rushmore. They are four-of-akind in that their contributions to the program then and now remain rock solid. Who would be on BHS footballs Mt. Rushmore? suspicions and have filed a police report, it is very unlikely the culprit will be discovered unless they admit to it. We would like to thank most of our nearby neighbors for their help and support that day and the day after. We are firm believers in karma and we know that God sees all.

being taken out of local lakes, but their days are limited. Kingsley has given up the largest ones this season, but Mike Clemmons has done his best to keep Sampson/Rowell well represented. Within the last few weeks he has landed one 8-plus-pound and one 9-pluspound bedding female out of the dual-lake area. We also previously published a photograph of Kaylee Fowler and a bass of approximately 10 pounds. Subsequent to that catch, relatives from GeorgiaPete Mangham and Tommy Fowler caught similar bass in the same private lake. The pan fish are in the process of swapping locations. The specks have fewer numbers in the shallow water, but those that are caught appear larger, according to Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle. As the water warms, they will be seeking their preferred cooler water in deeper areas. As they move outward, When Lamar Williams was asked if he knew any local hunter who had scored a wild turkey grand slam, he said, Go see Tommy Harper. Hes a great turkey hunter and loves to travel and hunt. Im sure he has. Well, it turns out that Harper has scored a grand slam 11 times, meaning that he has bagged Eastern, Osceola, Merriam and Rio sub-species of wild turkeys 11 different times. That does not mean that he has only taken 11 of each, because he and his hunting group have already harvested 11 local turkeys this year. One of Harpers major hunting goals is to travel to Mexico and take a Gould turkey. That achievement would give him the right to claim credit for a royal slam. When asked what his favorite turkey is, he said, Probably the Merriam because they are so pretty. The amount of white color distribution on their wings and tail make them a beautiful bird. Union County High Schools Kristen Cook and Nancy Slocum qualified for regional competition with their fourthplace performances at the District 5-2A track and field meet, which was held April 10 in Gainesville. The top four finishers in each event earned the right to move on to the April 16 Region 2 meet at First Academy in Orlando. Cook will advance in the shot put after a fourth-place distance of 31-3.75, earning the last regional berth ahead of Fort Whites Rykia Jackson, who had a distance of 30-5. Slocums time of 28.03 in the 200m earned the last regional berth ahead of Palatkas Kari Rasher, who had a time of 28.14. Cook just missed out on qualifying in the discus with a fifth-place throw of 89-3. Keaaris Ardley won the highjump championship, while fellow Bradford High School teammates helped the Tornadoes qualify for regionals in five other events at the District 5-2A track and field meet on April 10 in Gainesville. Ardley cleared 6-2 in the high jump, which was 6 inches better than runner-up William Barlow of Palatka. The top four finishers in each event qualified for the April 16 Region 2 meet at Orlandos First Academy. Bradfords Kenny Dinkins was the district runner-up in the 400m with a time of 49.63, which placed him behind champion Kaven Berry of Palatka, who had a time of 49.07. The boys 4x400m relay team of Ardley, Dinkins, Chris Barron and Brenton Ruise placed third with a time of 3:38.80. Diontre Jonas placed third in the 200m with a time of 22.59 and fourth in the 100m with a time of 11.03. Sarah Frederick earned the lone regional berth for Bradford on the girls side, placing fourth in the 1600m with a time of 6:21.72. Frederick just missed qualifying in the 3200m, placing fifth with a time of 15:49.62. Dinkins and Barron also earned fifth-place finishes Dinkins in the 200m with a time of 22.80 and Barron in the 400m with a time of 52.97. The boys 4x800m relay team of Kristopher Padgett, Taylor Sanders, Robert Martin and Tyler Oliver placed sixth with a time of 10:31.39. Ardley placed seventh in the long jump (18-10), while Alec Harden was seventh in the to her background, having grown up around logging because of her father, David. She knows what shes doing, Stone said. She can run a chainsaw. She can run a knuckleboom (crane). Shes 100 percent the real deal. Though Sims hit it right off with her fellow Dreadknots, it took a little longer to get used to being surrounded by a television crew. When you first start filming, you kind of have to work around everybody on the film crew and everybody on the boat, Sims said, but then a couple of weeks into it, its just like you push them out of your way, or they will get out of your way. Sims described the experience of seeing herself on TV for the first time awkward. Roberts said its one of those strange moments along with someone who youve never met before excited about the chance to meet you. Those are all the surreal moments, Roberts said. The same can be said for seeing yourself doing something on camera that you dont remember doing. Ive got a line about the Titanic that I have no recollection of saying whatsoever, Roberts said. I said it, and it was great, but I dont remember saying it. You could forgive any of the Dreadknots for forgetting something they said or did. Stone said six hours of aired footage has been culled from approximately 1,400 hours of video. Its crazy to actually see what they used, what they didnt use, what they shouldve used and what we wished they wouldve used, Stone said. There is lots of hilarious footage that TV viewers never get to see, Roberts said. Like the Slip N Slide, which Roberts described as awesome. It was a Slip N Slide that went from the hotel to the ocean, lets just put it that way, Stone said. Since joining the show for its seventh season, Sims has proven to be quite popular. Her Facebook page has approximately 8,000 followers. Thats no surprise to Roberts, who joked that Sims was bound to become popular hanging out with him and Stone. Awesome begets awesome, Roberts said. Sims quickly added, When youve got three awesome things happening at one time, youve got greatness. Thats what weve gotgreatness. Roberts said hes glad to see how popular Sims has become. I told Katelyn when she came on that I hoped she took off and that this was the springboard to something great for her. The popularity, the clowning around, the Slip N Slidesits all good, but what Sims enjoys the most is using Ax Men and her Facebook site to talk about cystic fibrosis. Reading encouraging messages from people or being able to enlighten people about cystic fibrosis tops being a TV celebrity. I feel like Im making people aware of (cystic fibrosis), Sims said. Theyll always send a message, Hey, I heard you have this, or, I Googled your name, and I saw this CF thing about you. They ask questions about it. When they ask questions, youre obviously educating them about it, which is an awesome feeling, knowing that youre telling them something they didnt know before. The more people are educated about cystic fibrosis, the quicker the disease can be eliminated, Roberts said. He and Stone are willing to help Sims do whatever it takes to bring about that reality. Anything that can possibly be done, you sign us up, were there, Stone said. The people of Bradford County have greatly supported her in her fundraising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, said Sims, whose efforts helped create an annual Great Strides fundraising walk. Making an appearance at the Bradford County Fair and bringing Roberts and Stone along with her is just a small way of saying thanks, she said. It may not be much, but its a little bit to give back, Sims said. Sims said she would definitely consider other TV opportunities in the future so that she can continue in her efforts to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis. For now, though, she sounds happy to be a part of Ax Men as long as the show will have her. Its just something that you go and do every day just like any other job, Sims said. Its the same routine every day. Its normal to me. Well, as normal as spending time with Capt. Clint and the Kraken can be. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 17, 2014 THE BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH Since 1879 Thank YouHeather, Joan & Lindafor aGreat Job!

April 11 in the BHS media center. I was jumping up and down on the couch, Parks said, describing his reaction to Tabors offer. Tabor, as a private, Christian college, offers more than just the chance to play at the next level. I like the values this school offers, Parks said. Its a heavy Christian school. Thats what I really like about it. Prior to high school, Parks had never played football, but he said he decided to give it a try since all his friends in ninth grade were playing. At first, I hated it, Parks said, noting that he particularly didnt enjoy the practices in the Florida heat. However, the more he played, the more the sport grew on him. I started to love it, he said. Bradford head coach Steve Reynolds said the Parks best attributes are his size and strength. Hes a huge person thats difficult to move around, Reynolds said. Plus, as someone who didnt begin playing until his freshman year, he has a lot of upside. We think he has a lot of raw talent to offer, Reynolds said. Reynolds said Parks made huge strides his junior season and proved versatile this past season, moving into the noseguard position after the graduation of Phillip James. He did a great job with that, Reynolds said. When asked to describe how he thinks hell feel when he steps onto the field for the first time as a Tabor player, Parks said, Ill probably feel how I felt my freshman year (at BHS) when I stepped on the field. (Ill have) butterflies. Initial nerves aside, theres no reason to think that Parks game wont continue to develop. If he gets there early, applies himself throughout the summer and learns the system, I dont see why he cant get on the field next year, Reynolds said. I think hes got a bright future ahead of him. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer He didnt like football when he first began playing in ninth grade, but Bradford High School senior Markel Parks eventually fell in love with the sport. Now, hes got the chance to extend his playing days, signing a letter of intent to play at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan. Parks, a defensive lineman, received an offer from the school in the mail not long before signing his official paperwork during a signing ceremony on Bradfords Parks signs to play football at Tabor College of the programs first signees. Its just exciting to be with a new program because youre going to be the first team to actually set the tone for the next couple of years, Collins, a second baseman/shortstop, said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School middle infielder Wyatt Collins will be part of building a new baseball program after signing a letter of intent to play at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville. Its just exciting to put all my work toward baseball, and now its finally paying off, Collins said after an April 11 signing ceremony in the BHS media center. Im just glad I get to play baseball at the collegiate level. Trinity announced earlier this year it was adding baseball to its athletic program.

working with her and taking (her game) to the next level, White said. Skinner said she hopes she can get the chance to play elsewhere following two years at St. Petersburg. Jolley has no doubts about that happening. I really dont think shell go just two years, Jolley said. I think once those two years are up, shell keep going. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was perhaps a late start compared to many college-bound athletes, but Keystone Heights High School senior Keerston Skinner turned just four years of volleyball into an opportunity at the next level, courtesy of St. Petersburg College. Skinner admitted that she never thought shed have the opportunity to play at the collegiate level. Im excited, she said, following an April 7 signing ceremony in the KHHS media center. Im thankful that (St. Petersburg coach Scott White) signed me. The front-row player had never played the sport prior to her freshman year and cant really say why she wanted to start playing. Honestly, I dont know, Skinner said. I really dont. I saw it one day, and I was like, Thats what I want to do. Once she began playing, she totally immersed herself into the sport. She eats, sleeps and breathes volleyball, Keystone head coach Nikki Jolley said. Im not kidding. She loves it. During her senior season, Skinner had matches where she recorded 10 and 11 kills against bigger schools Ridgeview and Palatka. She also had a 13-kill, six service-ace performance in a win over Fort White late in the season and tallied 13 kills in a loss to Santa Fe in the semifinals of the District 5-4A tournament. Now, Skinner gets to see what she can do beyond high school, an opportunity Jolley described as amazing. She is a wonderful person all the way around, Jolley said. No one deserves it more than her. St. Petersburg coach Scott White said Skinner as a big, strong kid hes eager to have as a part of his team.

Hes a high-character kid, Martinez said. Thats really what were aiming for. The baseball part of it will take care of itself. Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan said Collins has put in the effort necessary to be successful. Now, that effort has led to an opportunity to play after high school. Its good when a kid sets a goal, works toward that goal and then you see him accomplish that, Duncan said. Hes a good kid. Duncan said Collins is KHHS senior Keerston Skinner signs her letter of intent to play volleyball at St. Petersburg College. She is seated between her mother, Singletary, and St. Petersburg head coach Scott White. COLLINS Continued from 11B versatile enough to be able to play anywhere. Hes fast enough to play in the outfield, but when it comes to Collins play in the infield, Duncan said, He reads the ball good off the bat. He usually positions himself to catch a good ball instead of letting the ball play him. Hes got good, fundamental footwork. Hes accurate on his throws. Hes as good as has been here in a while. Duncan said Collins should thrive after taking part in Trinity Baptists conditioning program designed for baseball players only. I think hell be fine, Duncan said. Hes a hard worker. Whatever is asked of him, he does, and he usually goes beyond that. Collins cant wait to step onto the field for the first time as a Trinity Baptist player. I think its going to be a really nervous and amazing feeling, he said.
