lrmonitor@bellsouth.net www.StarkeJournal.com Deadline Monday 5 p.m. before publication Phone 352-473-2210 Fax 352-473-2210 Narcotics bust at Edwards GroceryBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The owner of Edwards Grocery was selling customers more than a gallon of gas. Don Hapuarachchi, 46, of Keystone Heights is accused of trading and selling illegal drugs. According to Bradford County Sheriffs Office Capt. Brad Smith, their drug unit arrested Hapuarachchi after several sources tipped them off to the storeowners activities. On the afternoon of April 24, officers caught him in the act. They moved in to close the business and execute a search warrant of the property, which is located at the crossroads of S.R. 100 and C.R. 18 in Theressa. Hapuarachchi is charged with two counts of trafficking Hydrocodone. Smith said the proximity to the school run by Hope Baptist Church resulted in additional charges two counts of possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school. While searching the store, detectives discovered more than 1,000 packs of synthetic marijuana. Smith said sources in the investigation stated these packages were also being sold under the counter for $20 apiece. Some took shots at the sheriffs office online for the perception that the storeowner was arrested for the synthetic pot, but the sheriffs office fired back, pointing out that Hapuarachchi was arrested on for the illegal sale of prescription narcotics. The sheriffs office also advised readers about the dangers of getting high from synthetic drugs. The synthetic drugs are sold as potpourri, incense, bath salts etc., but users ingest them for the purpose of getting high. Some jurisdictions have banned the sale of synthetic drugs, resulting in them being more difficult to find in convenience stores, where they were once common. They are still sold secretly under the counter, however, and can even be purchased online. Federal and state officials have faced difficulty in banning the substances. Outlawing specific chemicals results in manufacturers adjusting their formulas. Its a never-ending cycle of catch up. Because of psychotic episodes and other health problems, users have wound up in emergency rooms or dead from overdoses. Far from the natural substances their labels might claim, users have wound up addicted. Some have found themselves under arrest for actions taken while under the influence. Users have hurt themselves and attacked others while high. One man in Texas was arrested for assaulting several people, chasing a neighbor while acting like a dog, and then killing and eating an actual dog before begging cops to do something end his high. The long-term damage from the use of these substances is unknown. Hapuarachchi is being held at the Bradford County Jail with total bond set at $400,000.Lake Region Monitor Lake Region Monitor USPS 114-170 Keystone Heights, Florida Thursday, May 1, 2014 41 st Year 52nd Issue 75 CENTS KHHS lifts state championship trophyKeystone Heights High School was represented by six weightlifters at the FHSAA Finals, and six proved to be enough as the Indians tied Baker County for the Class 1A championship. The state participants who returned home with the top trophy are (l-r) Dakota Hodge, Lane Blanton, Chase Musselman, Darein Gilio, Brandon Johnson and Steve Beverly. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Going into the Florida High School Athletic Association Finals in boys weightlifting, Keystone Heights High School senior Lane Blanton had a feeling the Indians could place second or third. He wasnt, however, ruling out a first-place finish. I knew there was a chance we could do it, Blanton said. Thats all we needed was a chance. That chance led to the schools first-ever state title in any boys sport as the Indians finished tied atop the Class 1A team standings with Baker County. Junior Dakota Hodge had a secondplace finish, while Blanton and senior Chase Musselman each earned a third-place finish. Sophomore Steve Beverly had a fourth-place finish. Darein Gilio and Brandon Johnson also competed. Musselman said its difficult to win a state title with only six competing lifters and then having no lifter win his weight class. The Indians, though, did just that. Its a really good feeling, Musselman said. Please see the Regional News section for a more in-depth story on the KHHS performance.Clay sheriff recognizes lifesaversClay County Sheriff Rick Beseler recognized five deputies who saved the lives of residents during 2013. Beseler thanked the officers during the agencys annual awards ceremony and family day held at Camp Blanding on April 26. Deputies Ryan Clark and Chris Ruby responded to a 911 hang up call involving a suicidal female. Arriving on scene, the deputies were led to a bedroom where a woman was hanging from the stairs, in and out of consciousness and near the point of death. Ruby held the victim up to remove the tension from the rope while Clark cut the rope. They placed the victim on the ground where she was then able to start breathing. Clay County Fire Rescue transported the woman to Orange Park Medical Center. Public safety personnel said that if the deputies had not acted as quickly as they had, the victim would most likely have died by asphyxiation. Deputy Erick Mohler responded to a call involving a woman who had stopped breathing and was unresponsive. A witness led him to a front porch where he began to administer CPR to the victim. He continued cycles of CPR for 15 minutes until Clay County Fire Rescue personnel arrived. According to Orange Park Medical Center staff, the woman made a full recovery. Deputy Charles Troutt responded to a call involving a man who was not breathing. Arriving on scene, Troutt discovered the family had been unsuccessfully conducting CPR. He immediately took charge of the scene and began performing CPR until Clay County Fire Rescue arrived to continue lifesaving efforts while transporting the 45-yearold man to the Orange Park Medical Center. Public safety personnel said Troutts efforts were directly responsible for the patients survival. Deputy Sean Douris was approached by a citizen at the Orange Park Mall indicating that a stabbing had occurred at a store within the facility. Douris was the first responder, and approached two victims lying on the floor. One was badly bleeding. Douris immediately implemented a BOLO for the possible suspect and began administering first aid using his tactical medic kit. He stabilized the victim until rescue personnel arrived. A former Navy combat medic and physicians assistant indicated that Douris knowledge and quick response resulted in stabilizing this lifethreatening situation. Beseler also recognized the administrative civilian, detention deputy and operations deputy of the year during the ceremony, in addition to awarding the Sheriff J.P. Hall Sr. Law Enforcement Memorial Award. Bridgett Dugger is the administration civilian of the Year. Dugger created an application that allowed the offices computer system to download boating citations from an external database. After discovering the citations were not downloading correctly, Dugger identified a solution after entering approximately 250 codes and citations. Her work resulted in the creation of error-free boating citation records which streamlined the process for the marine unit. The ability to download the citations Fire Marshal: Melrose No injuries in Melrose construction accidentNo one was injured when a track hoe overturned during unloading at the Family Dollar construction site in Melrose on Tuesday. A member of the Melrose Volunteer Fire Department said workers cleaned up a minor fuel leak at the site on north S.R. 21. Righting the equipment was delayed by several hours while workers sent for a large crane. A spokesperson for the State Fire Marshals Office said an April 3 fire on Melroses Grove Street was not intentionally set. Ashley Carr said investigators determined the early morning blaze was accidental. Carr added that rescue workers found the body of a woman among the remains of the home. She did not identify the victim. However, several sources identified the woman as Mary Noble.

Kirkland is a systems protection engineer with Clay Electric Cooperative. Fryar is an inventory manager with Seminole Electric in Palatka. Daniel P.

We do have a third candidate who is also working with the growth management committee, and hopefully will do other things. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Keystone Heights City Council agreed to spend up to $5,000 for speed bumps or other traffic control measures on Jasmine Avenue after residents living on the street complained about chronic speeding through their neighborhood. Homeowner Bill Ward said motorists regularly drive between 50-60 mph on the street. He added that the speeders, in addition to children who walk along the roadway make for a dangerous situation. Its not a matter of if, he said. Its a matter of when that someone is going to get hurt and hurt bad. Mayor Tony Brown, who lives near Jasmine, said he was nearly hit earlier in the day because another motorist failed to yield at a stop sign at the corner of Jasmine Avenue and Orange Street.

The detention deputy of the year is Ronald Wellens, who developed information through a confidential informant revealing hidden contraband in a particular location in the jail. Wellens initiated a search which ultimately resulted in the location of loose tobacco and 24 pills such as Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. His ability to obtain an informant and act on the information prevented the contraband from being spread throughout the jail facility. Detective Steve Parker is the operations deputy of the year. During the months of June, July and August, the agencys training section provided active shooter response training to all deputies, bailiffs and reserve deputies within the sheriffs office. Parker led the training, which lasted 10 to 12 hours each day over several weeks. Parker is a certified active shooter response instructor and a veteran of the sheriffs office SWAT team. Lt. Russ Burke was awarded the Sheriff J.P. Hall Sr. Law Enforcement Memorial Award. On May 1, 2013, a detective from the special victims unit requested assistance with the removal of an endangered child from a residence. Because the suspect made threats to anyone attempting to remove the child, Burke devised a plan consisting of two teams of deputies stationed nearby while he and a patrol sergeant approached the residence in a non-threatening manner to evaluate the suspects state of mind. Once Burke announced his intentions to remove the child, the suspect reached from the middle of his back and removed a .9 mm handgun pointing it towards Burkes head. Burke instantly grabbed the barrel of the gun, ripping it from the suspects hand and subdued the man.AWARDSContinued from 1A My biggest concern are these kids that are playing down at the corner of Bird and Field streets and Jasmine, he said. I have to admit, some of them are in the street but the majority of the time they are in the yard. It is a problem. They are flying up and down the streets. Speed bumps are costly, but they dont cost a life. Paula Seabrook, who lives at the corner of Jasmine Avenue and Orange Street, said motorists regularly ignore the stop sign that Brown mentioned. I am the only one who sees it, she said. Nobody driving sees that stop sign. Most of the people coming up that street do not live on that street, or even right off of that street. We dont know who they are. They dont care who our children are. They just keep going. Seabrook also noted that while the speed limit on Jasmine Avenue is 25 mph, the posted limit on a nearby parallel road which runs by Keystone Heights Elementary School, Pecan Street is 15. She said that motorists wishing to speed through the area may choose Jasmine over Pecan because of the difference in the speed limit.

Ancestors of Keystone woman honored by state group BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Florida State Genealogical Society recently honored the ancestors of a Keystone Heights woman for their contributions to early Florida. Gabriel Priest served as a judge in East Florida, a legislator in three counties and a state senator in two. He also served as an officer during the Second Seminole War. In March, the genealogical society honored Priest, along with his son Emery by presenting his descendants with a certificate documenting his residency in Florida before it became a state in 1845. Julie Tyre Elbert of Keystone Heights and her sister, Nelda Wagner of Ocala accepted the certificate at a society meeting in Gainesville. Gabriel Priest was born in Massachusetts in 1782. He was a documented descendant of a Mayflower Compact signer. Priest migrated south and settled first in Camden County, Ga., where he served in the Georgia Home Militia. In 1824 he received a Spanish land grant for 500 acres along Black Creek at what is now the Black Creek Ravines Conservation Area east of Middleburg. During 1824-1827, he served as foreman on the Superior Court Grand Jury for the Eastern Division of Florida. Gov. William Pope Duval appointed him as a judge on the 10th District Court. Priest served the Florida Territory and then state as a legislator from 1828 to 1844 in various districts due to the changing nature of his home district. He represented Duval, Columbia and Alachua counties. Moving his family south to Alachua County, Priest established a plantation in Wacahooti, present day Micanopy. During the Second Seminole War 1835-1837, he served as a Lieutenant in Capt. James Dells Company, 1st Regiment, 2nd Julie Tyre Elbert (r) of Keystone Heights and Nelda Wagner of Ocala, descendants of Gabriel and Emery priest at a March meeting of the Florida Genealogical Society.

Brigade of the Florida Mounted Militia commanded by Col. John Warren. As conflicts with the Seminoles escalated, Priest moved his family from their plantation to the safety of Hogtown, present day Gainesville. The Seminoles later burned and destroyed his home. After Florida achieved statehood in 1845, he was elected Alachua Countys first state senator and represented Alachua and Marion Counties in the Florida Senate for another two years. He also introduced the legislation that established Marion County. Emery Priest followed his father from Massachusetts, to Georgia and onto Florida. He also served alongside his father and brothers during the Second Seminole war, and was wounded in the wrist by an enemy rifle ball while on a scouting mission near Micanopy. After recovering from his injury, he continued serving in the conflict. After the war he married, fathered 12 children and moved to Marion County. 4A Lake Region Monitor Thursday, May 1, 2014 The North East Florida Association of Realtors raised over $27,700 for Haven Hospice in the 11th Annual NEFAR Bass Tournament & Family Fun Day.

An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is Battle Stations. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. Battle Stations is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

Most outdoors activities pose certain risks to their participants, including threats by animals, insects, diseases and snakes. Despite our preference of entertaining those noted threats, the most common one during the summer probably comes from the sun. Some of the best collections of work, precautions and warnings about toxic chemicals and sunscreen products come from the Environmental Working Group. It has a very informative and easily accessed website, which is the source of most the following data. The proliferation rate of melanomathe most deadly form of skin cancerhas tripled over the past 35 years.   Despite the fact that sunscreen will protect skin against ultraviolet damage, there is little proof that the different sunscreen products prevent cancer. Consequently, three frequently quoted warnings provided by the Environmental Working Group are to cover up, seek shade and avoid the midday sun. Many sunscreen products promote the presence of a wide SPF spectrum. UVB rays cause sunburn, but UVA rays penetrate deeper, causing skin damage and possibly cancer.   SPF sunscreen ratings of 15-50 are recommended, but many advertise SPF ratings above 50. SPF ratings above 50 provide no additional protection and might cause additional skin damage. Additional recommendations provided by Environmental Working Group include: Do not use powder products. They are not FDA approved. Some products contain oxybenzone, which is a synthetic estrogen that penetrates the skin deeply and can disrupt the hormone system. Some products are in a spray form and might contain harmful products. Some products contain vitamin A, which Environmental 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thu rsday, May 1, 2014 CRIME DOESNT PAYBUT WE DO!REWARDS UP TO $3,000 CRIME DOESNT PAYBUT WE DO!P AID FOR BY THE FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE CRIME STOPPERS TRUST FUNDREWARDS UP TO $3,000R EMAIN ANONYMOUSCALL TOLL FREE S TOPPE RSSubmit a TIP ON-LINE at: www.F CCrimeStoppers.com Members of MLS systems providing excellent access to properties & listing exposure! www.SwiftCreekRealty.netOur Locations: Lake Butler12469 West SR 100 32054Lake City1140 SW Bascom Norris Dr. Ste. 106 32025 Gainesville3917 NW 97th Blvd. 32606 (800) 833-0499 (386) 496-0499 CUSTOM BUILT HOME with S/S appliances! 1.4+/Acres!$224,900!

The theater was filled. I read the book about a year ago, and found the movie a little different. The movie starts out telling this is a true story I believe it. In the book, the four year old boy, who went to Heaven, tells his father that he saw the Blessed Mother in Heaven, and she has an altar in front of God the Father, where she prays for us every day, and that she takes care of Jesus in Heaven, just like she took care of him on the earth when He was a baby That part was not mentioned in the movie. I didnt pick who would by my mother, and no one else on the earth picked their mother Jesus did, and He didnt pick any losers. When you dilute the truth by omission, it is not the whole truth. I guess the Blessed Mother is still too heavy for some people to handle. Read Luke 1:46:48 Thank you Frank the BakerMovie has something missingDear Editor: Our nation has recognized Law Day since 1958, when President Eisenhower issued a proclamation recognizing the role that the rule of law played in the formation of our country. In 1961, Congress officially established Law Day on May 1st of every year by enacting 36 U.S.C. 113, which states, in pertinent part, that Law Day, U.S.A., is a special day of celebration by the people of the United States (1) in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States and of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other and with other countries; and (2) for the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life. Each year, Law Day celebrates a different theme. Past years have explored First Amendment freedoms, the quest for equality, and the changing nature of law in the 21st century. Other years have commemorated milestones such as Lincolns Bicentennial and the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. This years theme is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. You may ask yourself why it matters to you. Consider this: In 1868, President Andrew Johnson avoided removal from office by one vote. In 1940, the Selective Service Act was amended by a single vote to extend the draft term from one year to two and a half years. More recently, in the 2008 election for the Alaska House of Representatives, incumbent Mike Kelly beat out challenger Karl Kassel by only four votes. And of course, who can forget the pregnant, hanging, bulging, and dimpled chads that permeated the 2000 election for President of the United States? Many of us take voting for granted. In fact, barely more than 51% of eligible voters showed up to the polls for the 2000 presidential election. In contrast, Western Europe has averaged 77% voter turnout since 1945. As we observe the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we must all reflect on the importance of our precious right to elect another human being into a position of governance. That right, as described by Theodore Hesburgh, president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, is a civic sacrament, and we must all strive not only to exercise it ourselves, but to ensure that our fellow citizens are free to exercise it as well. Peg OConnor, Gainesville Chair, 8th Judicial Circuit Bar Association Law Day Committee President-Elect, North Central Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar AssociationWhy every vote mattersDear Editor: Every year since President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day in 1958, the United States has marked May 1 as a day of national recognition of our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law. The theme for Law Day, May 1, 2014, as designated by the American Bar Association, is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The theme of voting rights is timely with the nation preparing to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of two landmark pieces of legislation: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. At the heart of both these statutes is a guiding principle: that equality of opportunity to participate in the Nations civic and economic life is a fundamental right of all Americans and ought to be protected as such. While there is still much work to do, these laws have been crucial in the progress toward this goal. Securing every Americans right to vote is a central part of this struggle. As President Lyndon B. Johnson pointed out in his 1965 Message to Congress on Voting: In our system, the first right and most vital of all our rights is the right to vote. ... It is from the exercise of this right that the guarantee of all our other rights flows. Unless the right to vote be secure and undenied, all other rights are insecure and subject to denial for all our citizens. However, the right to vote is far from secure. A recent report by the bipartisan Presidential Commission on Election Administration noted that voters frequently stand in long lines caused by broken voting machines, confusing ballots, and untrained or undertrained poll workers. This is completely unacceptable in a modern democracy. Local, state, and federal officials must work together to overcome these barriers to voting participation. Participating in the political process is both our right and our duty as citizens. This Law Day, let us reflect upon what each of us can do to protect and promote the voting rights of ourselves and our fellow Americans. It is only by ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to vote that we can be sure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

down in celebratory fashion. Everything in the pockets of my jacket fell out, McCormick said. Lost in Limbo was the result of a class project in which students were to incorporate toys into still-life photos. In her description accompanying the photo, McCormick wrote, I produced a composite photograph of a teddy bear lost in a limbo state. I set the tone for the piece by symbolizing lost time with the clock, made in the fashion of a television, which the teddy bear appears to be watching. To enhance the interest of the subject, I experimented with recreating an old-fashion photo using Adobe Photoshop. McCormick also submitted a photo of a spiral staircase and one of a dog peeking out from underneath a larger dogtitled, Hide and Seekfor League for Innovation consideration. The Hide and Seek photo and one of her ceramics pieces were the submissions she felt most confident about, McCormick said. The selection of Lost in Limbo was a bit of a surprise. That was the one I thought going in, Oh, theyre going to find this one cheesy and overdone, but it was the one picked, McCormick said. Art has held a fascination for McCormick since she was in elementary school. She remembers creating a ceramic piece in the likeness of Disney Main Street, USA character Scoop Sanderson. McCormick said she didnt think the piece was very well done, but admitted you could tell it was Scoop Sanderson. My art teacher was just amazed at what I could produce, McCormick said.

She didnt do much with art in middle and high schools, McCormick said. She actually went to college with a plan to focus on dance, but she eventually returned to her artwork at the encouragement of her younger sister, Ronda. Immersing herself fully into art became almost addictive. The more I got back into it, it was like, What more can I take? What more can I grasp? What more can they offer me? The more I learned, the more I found out, the more excited I got, McCormick said. McCormick won the first-ever Santa Fe College competition in which she entered artwork. Despite the fact she showed an artistic talent as early as elementary school, she described winning as pure luck. I was not sure how I was going to do, McCormick said. I didnt know what to think going into it. I was kind of just the new person on the block, whereas most of the people who entered had been (at Santa Fe) for a couple of years. The entry that won was a banjo piece that was constructed completely of recyclable materials as per show requirements. McCormick entered the same piece in Alachua Countys annual Trashformations showa recycled-art contest for middle school, high school and college studentsand earned second place. McCormick, who had taken part in 10 to 15 shows, received some incredibly good birthday news recently. A family friend whos a professional artist invited McCormick to be a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association for a year. The artist also offered to serve as a mentor for McCormick. It was a very wonderful surprise, McCormick said. Being a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association offers McCormick the chance to set up her own booth at association festivals so that more people get to know her and her work. That, and having an artist mentor, will help make a transition to more of a professional level. Needless to say, McCormick has been the recent recipient of quite a bit of good news. Doors have just been opening a lot lately, she said. another college-level League for Innovation

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Williston pitcher Trent Johnson struck out 11 and doubled in the game-winning run in leading the Red Devils to a 3-0 win over Union County in the District 71A baseball championship game on April 24 in Williston. The 6-4, 180-pound Santa Fe College signee allowed three hits and no walks. Union County threatened to score in the fourth inning when Cole Kite reached first by beating out a throw from third base. Garrett Hersey then singled, advancing Kite to second with no outs. Johnson then struck out Chris Starling, and Williston catcher Haden Cano picked off Hersey at first. Corey Hersey then grounded out to the shortstop to end the inning. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Fort White scored two runs on errors in the top of the eighth, while pitcher Rhett Willis struck out eight batters in three innings Lowery admitted. We beat everybody during the regular season. We won all our meets. I thought we would be top five. I had no idea that we could win it. Junior Dakota Hodge, who was the runner-up in the 129 class, said, We thought we had a chance to win. Thats all we needed. Hodge finished with a 435-pound total to finish behind 5 pounds behind West Floridas Roland Stark. Hodges bench press of 235 pounds was 10 pounds better than every other lifter in the class. I figured I might actually come in around third or fourth, said Hodge, who had a clean and jerk total of 200, but then luckily someone scratched their last few lifts. Blanton had a bench press of 255 and a clean and jerk of 240 to finish with a 495 total and place behind 139-pound class champion Ronnie Tucker of Altha and runner-up Isaac Gonzalez of LaBelle. Tucker and Gonzalez had totals of 555 and 510. Honestly, I didnt care what place I got as long as I got our team points, Blanton said. Musselman finished with a personal-best total of 600 poundsa bench press of 310 and a clean and jerk of 290. That placed him behind Tavares Jose Barajas, who won the 169 class with a 635 total, and Althas 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 of Ag IN HAMPTON AUTO REPAIRS SALES SERVICEMajor & Minor Repairs Brake Work Foreign & Domestic A/C Repair Transmission Specialist Low Labor Rates Computer Engine Diagnostics and MORE!Family Owned & Operated for over 20 years!

Going in, I had already looked at all the totals from all the other (state-qualifying meets), Musselman said. I knew I was going to get within the top three. I went in there just knowing if I did my best, Id be able to score for our team. Steve Beverly is just a sophomore, but he apparently had no jitters as he was able to place fourth in the 129 class with a bench press of 230 and a clean and jerk of 195. Beverlys total of 425 actually tied him with North Bay Havens Gavyn Collins and Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, but he placed ahead of those two lifters because of the weigh-in tiebreaker. Those three points Beverly earned by placing fourth were huge. Without him, we dont win it, Lowery said. Though finishing out of medal contention, senior Brandon Johnson did place in the top 10, placing ninth in the 154 class with a 515 total. He had a bench press of 275 and a clean and jerk of 240. Senior Darein Gilio placed 12th in the 199 class with a 585 total. He had a bench press of 300 and a clean and jerk of 285. Ill be honest with you, Lowery said. When Darein didnt score a point, I thought, We cant win it. This years field, though, proved to be pretty competitive. Aside from Keystone and Baker finishing in a tie for first, three schoolsArnold, Suwannee, West Floridafinished tied for second, while two schools Altha, Warner Christian finished tied for third. Plus, each of the individual state champions were from different schools. Lowery talked to Vernons coach prior to the start of the meet, saying a bunch of schools had to score points to give someone other than Baker County a chance. Baker County was the state runner-up in 2012 and 2013 and won four straight state titles from 2008 to 2011. The good thing about this years meet was everybody had a lot of good kids who could score points, Lowery said. Nine schools were within five points of winning. Lowery said Keystone placing first is quite an accomplishment considering that it has to lift against a lot of larger schools that it wouldnt compete against in most other sports. Thats why the end result left him feeling blessed. God is awesome, Lowery said. Thats what I thought. Stop and thinkwe had six kids lifting. Four of them placed, we had no (individual) state champions and we still won a state championship. That doesnt happen. This year, it did, and it made for quite a return trip home. Oh, on that ride I was pumped, Blanton said. I was so excited the whole ride home. I had the trophy in my arms. I was looking at it the whole time. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a rematch of one of last seasons Class 4A regional quarterfinal games, but there would be no seventh-inning rally for the Bradford High School softball team this year as the Tornadoes just couldnt get the hits they needed in a 2-1 loss to visiting South Sumter on April 23. South Sumter freshman pitcher Marissa Mesiemore, who hit a solo home run in the sixth inning that proved to be the game winner, gave up just two hits in propelling the Raiders (16-8) to this past Tuesdays semifinals, where they hosted P.K. Yonge (22-3). She did a great job of getting the ball inside on our hands, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said of Mesiemore. We had a tough time hitting the ball harda lot of pop-up outs in the infield when she got inside on us. We just never really made the adjustment to turn on that pitch. Bradford (18-8) hosted South Sumter in last years regional quarterfinals as well, scoring two runs in the bottom of the seventh to win 3-2 and fuel a run to the state semifinals. This year, the Tornadoes did put the tying run on in the seventh with no outs when Jaci Atkinson drew a walk. Mesiemore, though, struck out Sabina Watson and Lindsey Wiggins before forcing Mackenzie Gault to hit an infield pop-up. We just didnt do enough offensively to be able to pull it out, Davis said. If you give up one or two runs, you feel like youre going to have a chance to win, but we just couldnt put the runs on the board. Mesiemore reached on a dropped fly ball to lead off the top of the second. Bradford pitcher Ashton Adkins struck out the next two batters, but hit Vicki Medina with a pitch to put two on with two outs. Shelby Spruill then hit a ground ball to third, but an error on the play at first allowed Tyana Ramirez, who was running for Mesiemore, to score and put the Raiders up 1-0. Thats one we dont make very often, Davis said of the two-out miscue.South Sumter ends BHS softball seasonJarvis DeSue and Austin Long competed for Bradford and Union County, respectively, at the Florida High School Athletic Association Finals in boys weightlifting, with each finishing just outside of the top 10 of his weight class. Unions Long competed in the 129-pound class, placing 12th with a total of 380. His bench press of 215 pounds was the fifth-highest total in the class. Longs overall total was 45 pounds less than that of Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, who earned the last medal in the class with a sixth-place finish. Bradfords DeSue had the ninth-highest bench press total (280) in the 154 class and finished 13th with a 495 overall total. He was 90 pounds behind Baker Countys Dalton Dyal, who earned the last medal with a sixth-place finish.Bradfords DeSue, Unions Long miss topout of Santa Fe Lake.   One fisherman produced a 50-pound catch that consisted of only six catfish.   The fisherman was using crappie minnows for bait. The pungent smell of fish beds was noticeable at the boat launch during the April 24 Sampson Lake Bass Tournament. The wind was blowing in a southeasterly direction, and some of the fishermen noted that the smell was very strong on the northeastern shore. The timing would suggest that shellcrackers or a combination of shellcrackers and bluegill would most likely be responsible for those bedding indicators. These fish are probably being stimulated by the forthcoming new moon, which will reach its full phase on April 29. The saltwater front seems to have been dampened by Easters cool weather. Most inshore reports remained centered around flounder, trout, reds and black drum. There are reports of whiting on east coast beaches, and for those who look for fishing variety, there are reports of croakers and yellow-mouth trout in the St. Johns River around Green Cove Springs. Reports of summer cobia near the beaches are spotty at best.   Hunting season in Florida is over with the exception of hogs and rabbits, which can be hunted all year. Georgias spring gobbler season will continue through May 15.   Bass tourney resultsAt the April 23 Bald Eagle Tournament, Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec placed first. Joey Yarborough and Ryan Rentz were second, while John Breton and Chuck Foster were third. Kadlec landed the big fish. Trevor Corbitt and Drew Rogers teamed up for first at the April 24 Sampson Lake Tournament. John (last name not available) and Jason Jordan placed second, while Jonathon Nash and Richard Kingston were third. Nash had the big fish.FINSContinued from 4B Bradford High School senior catcher David Hall signed a letter of intent to play at Jacksonvilles Trinity Baptist College during a signing ceremony on April 25. Hall will join teammate/ second baseman Wyatt Collins, who signed with Trinity Baptist on April 11. See next weeks Regional News section for a more in-depth story.Trinity Baptist signs BHS baseballs Hall Fort White defeats Tornadoes in or relief to lead the Indians to a 6-4 win over Bradford in the championship game of the District 5-4A baseball tournament on April 24 in Alachua. The Tornadoes (17-10) held two leads, including a one-run lead going into the seventh. We just couldnt close the door, said Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan, whose team will travel to play the Villages in a regional quarterfinal game on Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. It was 4-3 in the top of the seventh when Fort Whites Willie Carter launched a home run over the fence in left field to tie the game. Duncan accepted responsibility for the homer, saying it was not the intent to throw anything near the plate that Carter could get a hold of. Carter was responsible for Fort White beating the Tornadoes 10-9 early in the regular season. We just shouldve put him on and not thrown to him, Duncan said.

Hes got a bright future ahead of him, Tomlinson said of Johnson. Hes going to college for a reason. Both teams advance to the Class 1A regional semifinals on Tuesday, May 6. Williston will host Wildwood, while Union County will travel to Pierson to take on Taylor High School. Austin Langworthy led off the Williston seventh with a double to the gap between left and center fields. Cano then singled, advancing Langworthy to second. Johnson doubled to right-center field, driving in both runners. Williston scored an additional run in the sixth inning after Union County head coach Brian Tomlinson replaced starting pitcher Jordan Bryant with Ty Cook. With the bases loaded, Johnson grounded to third base. The Tigers got the first out with a force play at home, but catcher Corey Herseys throw to first got A fielding error put Fort Whites Brent Beach on with one out in the top of the eighth. Bradford pitcher Caleb Polk struck out the next batter before giving up a single to Jayson Brock, putting runners on the corners. A throwing error on a ground ball by Ryan Ellis allowed the winning runs to score. It was that kind of night for the Bradford defense, which committed errors in all but three innings. They were in this game because of our errors, Duncan said of Fort White. We just did not make the plays when we needed to. An error allowed Fort White (14-11) to score the games first run. Leadoff batter Brock opened the game with a single and eventually scored on a dropped fly ball to put the Indians up 1-0. Bradford answered in the bottom of the first. Leadoff Jackson Reddish was hit by a pitch. Holden Huggins entered the game to run for Reddish, stealing second and third before scoring on Wyatt Barnes single. The Tornadoes went up 2-1 in the third when Carson Yowell, who reached on a double, scored on Jacob Lukes sacrifice fly. Fort White tied the score at 2-2 in the fourth. Austin Dupree hit a leadoff single and advanced on a bunt by Kodey Owens before eventually scoring on a bunt by Corey Pentolino. Bradford pushed two runs across in the fifth. Yowell drew a leadoff walk and advanced on Barnes sacrifice bunt before Luke drew a walk. David Hall drilled a single down the firstbase line to score both runners. Barnes and Matt Stanwix-Hay each went 2-for-4. Stanwix-Hay was the only batter to get a hit off of Willis, who entered the sixth inning in relief of starting pitcher Dupree. The Tornadoes regional quarterfinal opponent is coming off of its third straight district championship, but the Villages (15-8) was a Class 1A program prior to this season. The Buffalo defeated Trinity Catholic 7-6 to claim the District 6 crown. The winner between Bradford and the Villages will advance to the Tuesday, May 6, semifinals to play the winner between Fort White and Trinity Catholic (188). Bradford would have to travel to face either team. Visit www.StarkeJournal.com to view more photos from this game. (Membership required.)Tornadoes advanced by defeating RaidersBradford was held hitless in the district semifinals, but still advanced to the championship game, defeating third seed and host Santa Fe 2-1 on April 22. Though they didnt have a hit, the Tornadoes took advantage of three walks and a hit batter, as well as good baserunning by Huggins, who was 2-for-2 on stolen-base attempts. His counterpart may have thrown a no-hitter, but Bradford pitcher Luke (4-1) fared pretty well himself, giving up just two hits and striking out nine in a complete-game performance. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR BOARD MEETINGS WILL BE HELD ON THE 1st TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH AT 6:00 P.M.

Kaylen Chitty, who entered the game to run for Adkins, was left stranded on first as Mesiemore struck one batter out and forced two others to hit fly balls to the outfield. Adkins, who gave up six hits and no walks, recorded one of her 11 strikeouts to open the top of the sixth. Mesiemore, though, drove a 3-2 pitch over the fence in center field to put the Raiders up 2-1. South Sumters McKayla Peninger was the games only batter with multiple hits, going 2-for-3. It was a tough way for seniors Adkins, Gault and Wiggins to go out. Davis said the three players always gave maximum effort and that their leadership will be missed. Thats tough to replace, Davis said. Itll be interesting to see who steps up as leaders next year with a good group coming back. Five starters on this years team are juniors, while one is a sophomore. All but one of those players were starters on the 2013 team that had so much success. I think theyll come back hungry, Davis said. I hope that this can be kind of a springboard into next year for them to be focused and ready to go.REGIONContinued from 8B Hay makes a throw from BHSContinued from 8B UCHSContinued from 8B

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The owner of Edwards Grocery was selling customers more than a gallon of gas. Don Hapuarachchi, 46, of Keystone Heights is accused of trading and selling illegal drugs. According to Bradford County Sheriffs Office Capt. Brad Smith, their drug unit arrested Hapuarachchi after several sources tipped them off to the storeowners activities. On the afternoon of April 24, officers caught him in the act. They moved in to close the business and execute a search warrant of the property, which is located at the crossroads of S.R. 100 and C.R. 18 in Theressa. Hapuarachchi is charged with two counts of trafficking Hydrocodone. Smith said the proximity to the school run by Hope Baptist Church resulted in additional charges two counts of possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school. While searching the store, detectives discovered more than 1,000 packs of synthetic marijuana. Smith said sources in the investigation stated these packages were also being sold under the counter for $20 apiece. Some took shots at the sheriffs office online for the perception that the storeowner was arrested for the synthetic pot, but the sheriffs office fired back, pointing out that Hapuarachchi was arrested on for the illegal sale of prescription narcotics. The sheriffs office also advised readers about the dangers of getting high from synthetic drugs. The synthetic drugs are sold as potpourri, incense, bath salts etc., but users ingest them for the purpose of getting high. Some jurisdictions have banned the sale of synthetic drugs, resulting in them being more difficult to find in convenience stores, where they were once common. They are still sold secretly under the counter, however, and can even be purchased online. Federal and state officials have faced difficulty in banning the substances. Outlawing specific chemicals results in manufacturers adjusting their formulas. Its a never-ending cycle of catch up. Because of psychotic episodes and other health problems, users have wound up in emergency rooms or dead from overdoses. Far from the natural substances their labels might claim, users have wound up addicted. Some have found themselves under arrest for actions taken while under the influence. Users have hurt themselves and attacked others while high. One man in Texas was arrested for assaulting several people, chasing a neighbor while acting like a dog, and then killing and eating an actual dog before begging cops to do something end his high. The long-term damage from the use of these substances is unknown. Hapuarachchi is being held at the Bradford County Jail with total bond set at $400,000. Lake Region Monitor Lake Region Monitor USPS 114-170 Keystone Heights, Florida Thursday, May 1, 2014 41 st Year 52 nd Issue 75 CENTS KHHS lifts state championship trophy Keystone Heights High School was represented by six weightlifters at the FHSAA Finals, and six proved to be enough as the Indians tied Baker County for the Class 1A championship. The state participants who returned home with the top trophy are (l-r) Dakota Hodge, Lane Blanton, Chase Musselman, Darein Gilio, Brandon Johnson and Steve Beverly. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Going into the Florida High School Athletic Association Finals in boys weightlifting, Keystone Heights High School senior Lane Blanton had a feeling the Indians could place second or third. He wasnt, however, ruling out a first-place finish. I knew there was a chance we could do it, Blanton said. Thats all we needed was a chance. That chance led to the schools first-ever state title in any boys sport as the Indians finished tied atop the Class 1A team standings with Baker County. Junior Dakota Hodge had a secondplace finish, while Blanton and senior Chase Musselman each earned a third-place finish. Sophomore Steve Beverly had a fourth-place finish. Darein Gilio and Brandon Johnson also competed. Musselman said its difficult to win a state title with only six competing lifters and then having no lifter win his weight class. The Indians, though, did just that. Its a really good feeling, Musselman said. Please see the Regional News section for a more in-depth story on the KHHS performance. Clay sheriff recognizes lifesavers Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler recognized five deputies who saved the lives of residents during 2013. Beseler thanked the officers during the agencys annual awards ceremony and family day held at Camp Blanding on April 26. Deputies Ryan Clark and Chris Ruby responded to a 911 hang up call involving a suicidal female. Arriving on scene, the deputies were led to a bedroom where a woman was hanging from the stairs, in and out of consciousness and near the point of death. Ruby held the victim up to remove the tension from the rope while Clark cut the rope. They placed the victim on the ground where she was then able to start breathing. Clay County Fire Rescue transported the woman to Orange Park Medical Center. Public safety personnel said that if the deputies had not acted as quickly as they had, the victim would most likely have died by asphyxiation. Deputy Erick Mohler responded to a call involving a woman who had stopped breathing and was unresponsive. A witness led him to a front porch where he began to administer CPR to the victim. He continued cycles of CPR for 15 minutes until Clay County Fire Rescue personnel arrived. According to Orange Park Medical Center staff, the woman made a full recovery. Deputy Charles Troutt responded to a call involving a man who was not breathing. Arriving on scene, Troutt discovered the family had been unsuccessfully conducting CPR. He immediately took charge of the scene and began performing CPR until Clay County Fire Rescue arrived to continue lifesaving efforts while transporting the 45-yearold man to the Orange Park Medical Center. Public safety personnel said Troutts efforts were directly responsible for the patients survival. Deputy Sean Douris was approached by a citizen at the Orange Park Mall indicating that a stabbing had occurred at a store within the facility. Douris was the first responder, and approached two victims lying on the floor. One was badly bleeding. Douris immediately implemented a BOLO for the possible suspect and began administering first aid using his tactical medic kit. He stabilized the victim until rescue personnel arrived. A former Navy combat medic and physicians assistant indicated that Douris knowledge and quick response resulted in stabilizing this lifethreatening situation. Beseler also recognized the administrative civilian, detention deputy and operations deputy of the year during the ceremony, in addition to awarding the Sheriff J.P. Hall Sr. Law Enforcement Memorial Award. Bridgett Dugger is the administration civilian of the Year. Dugger created an application that allowed the offices computer system to download boating citations from an external database. After discovering the citations were not downloading correctly, Dugger identified a solution after entering approximately 250 codes and citations. Her work resulted in the creation of error-free boating citation records which streamlined the process for the marine unit. The ability to download the citations Fire Marshal: Melrose No injuries in Melrose construction accident No one was injured when a track hoe overturned during unloading at the Family Dollar construction site in Melrose on Tuesday. A member of the Melrose Volunteer Fire Department said workers cleaned up a minor fuel leak at the site on north S.R. 21. Righting the equipment was delayed by several hours while workers sent for a large crane. A spokesperson for the State Fire Marshals Office said an April 3 fire on Melroses Grove Street was not intentionally set. Ashley Carr said investigators determined the early morning blaze was accidental. Carr added that rescue workers found the body of a woman among the remains of the home. She did not identify the victim. However, several sources identified the woman as Mary Noble.

Kirkland is a systems protection engineer with Clay Electric Cooperative. Fryar is an inventory manager with Seminole Electric in Palatka. Daniel P. Lewandowski, a retired colonel in the U.S. Air Force applied for both Kirklands and Fryars seat. Vice Mayor Paul Yates, who nominated Fryar and Kirkland, said he saw no reason not to reappoint the incumbents. We have two seated board members now that seem to have done a good job, he said. We do have a third candidate who is also working with the growth management committee, and hopefully will do other things. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Keystone Heights City Council agreed to spend up to $5,000 for speed bumps or other traffic control measures on Jasmine Avenue after residents living on the street complained about chronic speeding through their neighborhood. Homeowner Bill Ward said motorists regularly drive between 50-60 mph on the street. He added that the speeders, in addition to children who walk along the roadway make for a dangerous situation. Its not a matter of if, he said. Its a matter of when that someone is going to get hurt and hurt bad. Mayor Tony Brown, who lives near Jasmine, said he was nearly hit earlier in the day because another motorist failed to yield at a stop sign at the corner of Jasmine Avenue and Orange Street.

Russ Burke was awarded the Sheriff J.P. Hall Sr. Law Enforcement Memorial Award. On May 1, 2013, a detective from the special victims unit requested assistance with the removal of an endangered child from a residence. Because the suspect made threats to anyone attempting to remove the child, Burke devised a plan consisting of two teams of deputies stationed nearby while he and a patrol sergeant approached the residence in a non-threatening manner to evaluate the suspects state of mind. Once Burke announced his intentions to remove the child, the suspect reached from the middle of his back and removed a .9 mm handgun pointing it towards Burkes head. Burke instantly grabbed the barrel of the gun, ripping it from the suspects hand and subdued the man. AWARDS Continued from 1A My biggest concern are these kids that are playing down at the corner of Bird and Field streets and Jasmine, he said. I have to admit, some of them are in the street but the majority of the time they are in the yard. It is a problem. They are flying up and down the streets. Speed bumps are costly, but they dont cost a life. Paula Seabrook, who lives at the corner of Jasmine Avenue and Orange Street, said motorists regularly ignore the stop sign that Brown mentioned. I am the only one who sees it, she said. Nobody driving sees that stop sign. Most of the people coming up that street do not live on that street, or even right off of that street. We dont know who they are. They dont care who our children are. They just keep going. Seabrook also noted that while the speed limit on Jasmine Avenue is 25 mph, the posted limit on a nearby parallel road which runs by Keystone Heights Elementary School, Pecan Street is 15. She said that motorists wishing to speed through the area may choose Jasmine over Pecan because of the difference in the speed limit.

Ancestors of Keystone woman honored by state group BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Florida State Genealogical Society recently honored the ancestors of a Keystone Heights woman for their contributions to early Florida. Gabriel Priest served as a judge in East Florida, a legislator in three counties and a state senator in two. He also served as an officer during the Second Seminole War. In March, the genealogical society honored Priest, along with his son Emery by presenting his descendants with a certificate documenting his residency in Florida before it became a state in 1845. Julie Tyre Elbert of Keystone Heights and her sister, Nelda Wagner of Ocala accepted the certificate at a society meeting in Gainesville. Gabriel Priest was born in Massachusetts in 1782. He was a documented descendant of a Mayflower Compact signer. Priest migrated south and settled first in Camden County, Ga., where he served in the Georgia Home Militia. In 1824 he received a Spanish land grant for 500 acres along Black Creek at what is now the Black Creek Ravines Conservation Area east of Middleburg. During 1824-1827, he served as foreman on the Superior Court Grand Jury for the Eastern Division of Florida. Gov. William Pope Duval appointed him as a judge on the 10th District Court. Priest served the Florida Territory and then state as a legislator from 1828 to 1844 in various districts due to the changing nature of his home district. He represented Duval, Columbia and Alachua counties. Moving his family south to Alachua County, Priest established a plantation in Wacahooti, present day Micanopy. During the Second Seminole War 1835-1837, he served as a Lieutenant in Capt. James Dells Company, 1st Regiment, 2nd Julie Tyre Elbert (r) of Keystone Heights and Nelda Wagner of Ocala, descendants of Gabriel and Emery priest at a March meeting of the Florida Genealogical Society.

Brigade of the Florida Mounted Militia commanded by Col. John Warren. As conflicts with the Seminoles escalated, Priest moved his family from their plantation to the safety of Hogtown, present day Gainesville. The Seminoles later burned and destroyed his home. After Florida achieved statehood in 1845, he was elected Alachua Countys first state senator and represented Alachua and Marion Counties in the Florida Senate for another two years. He also introduced the legislation that established Marion County. Emery Priest followed his father from Massachusetts, to Georgia and onto Florida. He also served alongside his father and brothers during the Second Seminole war, and was wounded in the wrist by an enemy rifle ball while on a scouting mission near Micanopy. After recovering from his injury, he continued serving in the conflict. After the war he married, fathered 12 children and moved to Marion County. 4A Lake Region Monitor Thursday, May 1, 2014 The North East Florida Association of Realtors raised over $27,700 for Haven Hospice in the 11th Annual NEFAR Bass Tournament & Family Fun Day.

Most outdoors activities pose certain risks to their participants, including threats by animals, insects, diseases and snakes. Despite our preference of entertaining those noted threats, the most common one during the summer probably comes from the sun. Some of the best collections of work, precautions and warnings about toxic chemicals and sunscreen products come from the Environmental Working Group. It has a very informative and easily accessed website, which is the source of most the following data. The proliferation rate of melanomathe most deadly form of skin cancerhas tripled over the past 35 years. Despite the fact that sunscreen will protect skin against ultraviolet damage, there is little proof that the different sunscreen products prevent cancer. Consequently, three frequently quoted warnings provided by the Environmental Working Group are to cover up, seek shade and avoid the midday sun. Many sunscreen products promote the presence of a wide SPF spectrum. UVB rays cause sunburn, but UVA rays penetrate deeper, causing skin damage and possibly cancer. SPF sunscreen ratings of 15-50 are recommended, but many advertise SPF ratings above 50. SPF ratings above 50 provide no additional protection and might cause additional skin damage. Additional recommendations provided by Environmental Working Group include: Do not use powder products. They are not FDA approved. Some products contain oxybenzone, which is a synthetic estrogen that penetrates the skin deeply and can disrupt the hormone system. Some products are in a spray form and might contain harmful products. Some products contain vitamin A, which Environmental 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 CRIME DOESNT PAYB UT WE DO!REWARDS UP TO $3,000 CRIME DOESNT PAYB UT WE DO!P AID FOR BY THE FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE CRIME STOPPERS TRUST FUNDREWARDS UP TO $3,000R EMAIN ANONYMOUSC ALL TOLL FREE S TOPPE RSSubmit a TIP ON-LINE a t: www.F CCrimeStoppers.com Members of MLS systems providing excellent access to properties & listing exposure! www.SwiftCreekRealty.netOur Locations: Lake Butler12469 West SR 100 32054Lake City1140 SW Bascom Norris Dr. Ste. 106 32025 Gainesville3917 NW 97th Blvd. 32606 (800) 833-0499 (386) 496-0499 CUSTOM BUILT HOME with S/S appliances! 1.4+/Acres!$224,900!

The theater was filled. I read the book about a year ago, and found the movie a little different. The movie starts out telling this is a true story I believe it. In the book, the four year old boy, who went to Heaven, tells his father that he saw the Blessed Mother in Heaven, and she has an altar in front of God the Father, where she prays for us every day, and that she takes care of Jesus in Heaven, just like she took care of him on the earth when He was a baby That part was not mentioned in the movie. I didnt pick who would by my mother, and no one else on the earth picked their mother Jesus did, and He didnt pick any losers. When you dilute the truth by omission, it is not the whole truth. I guess the Blessed Mother is still too heavy for some people to handle. Read Luke 1:46:48 Thank you Frank the Baker Movie has something missing Dear Editor: Our nation has recognized Law Day since 1958, when President Eisenhower issued a proclamation recognizing the role that the rule of law played in the formation of our country. In 1961, Congress officially established Law Day on May 1st of every year by enacting 36 U.S.C. 113, which states, in pertinent part, that Law Day, U.S.A., is a special day of celebration by the people of the United States (1) in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States and of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other and with other countries; and (2) for the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life. Each year, Law Day celebrates a different theme. Past years have explored First Amendment freedoms, the quest for equality, and the changing nature of law in the 21st century. Other years have commemorated milestones such as Lincolns Bicentennial and the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. This years theme is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. You may ask yourself why it matters to you. Consider this: In 1868, President Andrew Johnson avoided removal from office by one vote. In 1940, the Selective Service Act was amended by a single vote to extend the draft term from one year to two and a half years. More recently, in the 2008 election for the Alaska House of Representatives, incumbent Mike Kelly beat out challenger Karl Kassel by only four votes. And of course, who can forget the pregnant, hanging, bulging, and dimpled chads that permeated the 2000 election for President of the United States? Many of us take voting for granted. In fact, barely more than 51% of eligible voters showed up to the polls for the 2000 presidential election. In contrast, Western Europe has averaged 77% voter turnout since 1945. As we observe the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we must all reflect on the importance of our precious right to elect another human being into a position of governance. That right, as described by Theodore Hesburgh, president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, is a civic sacrament, and we must all strive not only to exercise it ourselves, but to ensure that our fellow citizens are free to exercise it as well. Peg OConnor, Gainesville Chair, 8th Judicial Circuit Bar Association Law Day Committee President-Elect, North Central Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar Association Why every vote matters Dear Editor: Every year since President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day in 1958, the United States has marked May 1 as a day of national recognition of our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law. The theme for Law Day, May 1, 2014, as designated by the American Bar Association, is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The theme of voting rights is timely with the nation preparing to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of two landmark pieces of legislation: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. At the heart of both these statutes is a guiding principle: that equality of opportunity to participate in the Nations civic and economic life is a fundamental right of all Americans and ought to be protected as such. While there is still much work to do, these laws have been crucial in the progress toward this goal. Securing every Americans right to vote is a central part of this struggle. As President Lyndon B. Johnson pointed out in his 1965 Message to Congress on Voting: In our system, the first right and most vital of all our rights is the right to vote. ... It is from the exercise of this right that the guarantee of all our other rights flows. Unless the right to vote be secure and undenied, all other rights are insecure and subject to denial for all our citizens. However, the right to vote is far from secure. A recent report by the bipartisan Presidential Commission on Election Administration noted that voters frequently stand in long lines caused by broken voting machines, confusing ballots, and untrained or undertrained poll workers. This is completely unacceptable in a modern democracy. Local, state, and federal officials must work together to overcome these barriers to voting participation. Participating in the political process is both our right and our duty as citizens. This Law Day, let us reflect upon what each of us can do to protect and promote the voting rights of ourselves and our fellow Americans. It is only by ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to vote that we can be sure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Peg OConnor, Gainesville Chair, 8th Judicial Circuit Bar Association Law Day Committee President-Elect, North Central Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar Association voting rights on Law Day Dear Editor: The National Day of Prayer this year will be Thursday, May 1. The time this year is 1:00 p.m. This is a change from last year. This is the 63rd year of observance of the National Holiday sat aside by our Presidents of the United States of America. The leadership of our country has been calling for national days of prayer since George Washington was president. The Prayer Rally will be held in the court yard of the Bradford County Courthouse, located on U S 301 North in Starke. Everyone is invited to attend. This will be the last year that I will serve as coordinator of the National Day of Prayer here in Bradford County. I have moved to Georgia, and I want to say thank you to all of you who have supported this event each year. Most especially thank you to the County Commissioners of Bradford County for making the NDP a part of their yearly calendar. Thank you to the pastors who have encouraged their congregations to attend. And thank you to the Mens Prayer Fellowship Dear Editor: Mr. Sullivan, whom I dont know and apparently you dont know me, let me set the record straight. I worked for the Honorable Sheriff John Whitehead, Honorable Sheriff Jerry Whitehead, Capt. Cynthia Whitehead at state Prison when all treated me like family, as long as I did my job!

Products that contain zinc oxide, avobenzone and Mexoryl SX are beneficial and will help protect the skin from UVA radiation. In 2011, national legislation was passed at the recommendation of the Food and Drug Administration that forced companies to eliminate misleading labeling. However, some of the vestiges of the pre2011 legislation continue to exist. Outdoors outlook Easters typical cool spell has passed, and the bass and crappie spawns are waning. Many of the larger female fish weighed in at the local bass fishing tournaments are thin and without eggs. Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle in Keystone Heights says that he is still hearing of crappie catches with roe. Buddy Wright, who we featured in the previous Fins, Fur and Tales for his record bass catch some years ago, purchased minnows from Bald Eagle a couple of weeks ago and headed for Santa Fe Lake. Later that day, he returned to the store on his way home with a large catch of crappie full of roe. Tyson indicated that the catch filled a 5-gallon can and included mostly 2to 2.5-pound fish. Bear in mind that two weeks can make a significant difference at this time of the year on fish and wildlife habits. Tyson said a big number of large catfish have been coming See FINS, 8B Corbbit and Drew Rogers with the winning catch Jonathan Nash had the

down in celebratory fashion. Everything in the pockets of my jacket fell out, McCormick said. Lost in Limbo was the result of a class project in which students were to incorporate toys into still-life photos. In her description accompanying the photo, McCormick wrote, I produced a composite photograph of a teddy bear lost in a limbo state. I set the tone for the piece by symbolizing lost time with the clock, made in the fashion of a television, which the teddy bear appears to be watching. To enhance the interest of the subject, I experimented with recreating an old-fashion photo using Adobe Photoshop. McCormick also submitted a photo of a spiral staircase and one of a dog peeking out from underneath a larger dogtitled, Hide and Seekfor League for Innovation consideration. The Hide and Seek photo and one of her ceramics pieces were the submissions she felt most confident about, McCormick said. The selection of Lost in Limbo was a bit of a surprise. That was the one I thought going in, Oh, theyre going to find this one cheesy and overdone, but it was the one picked, McCormick said. Art has held a fascination for McCormick since she was in elementary school. She remembers creating a ceramic piece in the likeness of Disney Main Street, USA character Scoop Sanderson. McCormick said she didnt think the piece was very well done, but admitted you could tell it was Scoop Sanderson. My art teacher was just amazed at what I could produce, McCormick said.

She actually went to college with a plan to focus on dance, but she eventually returned to her artwork at the encouragement of her younger sister, Ronda. Immersing herself fully into art became almost addictive. The more I got back into it, it was like, What more can I take? What more can I grasp? What more can they offer me? The more I learned, the more I found out, the more excited I got, McCormick said. McCormick won the first-ever Santa Fe College competition in which she entered artwork. Despite the fact she showed an artistic talent as early as elementary school, she described winning as pure luck. I was not sure how I was going to do, McCormick said. I didnt know what to think going into it. I was kind of just the new person on the block, whereas most of the people who entered had been (at Santa Fe) for a couple of years. The entry that won was a banjo piece that was constructed completely of recyclable materials as per show requirements. McCormick entered the same piece in Alachua Countys annual Trashformations showa recycled-art contest for middle school, high school and college studentsand earned second place. McCormick, who had taken part in 10 to 15 shows, received some incredibly good birthday news recently. A family friend whos a professional artist invited McCormick to be a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association for a year. The artist also offered to serve as a mentor for McCormick. It was a very wonderful surprise, McCormick said. Being a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association offers McCormick the chance to set up her own booth at association festivals so that more people get to know her and her work. That, and having an artist mentor, will help make a transition to more of a professional level. Needless to say, McCormick has been the recent recipient of quite a bit of good news. Doors have just been opening a lot lately, she said. another college-level League for Innovation

Shuford up until the time of his death. Its a great opportunity to recognize him, Warren said. Also planned is the official dedication of a monument area to the 19 Bradford County lawenforcement officers who gave their lives in service. The area, which will include 13 benches, consists of a memorial stone placed in honor of each officer as well as 18 palm trees planted in their memories. (One tree represents both father and son George W. Epperson and Henry W. Epperson, who were both former sheriffs.) Warren said the idea for such a physical memorial has been in the works for approximately 10 years. Thanks to the support of donors in the community, the idea has become a realitya reality that has been overdue, Warren said, pointing out that the first officer killed in the line of duty was Dec. 25, 1885, while the last was July 26, 1995. Its time, Warren said. Its beyond time for these people who served their last call in service to this community. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead will perform the roll call for those who gave their lives in service to Union County: Union deputies Hal Croft (May 23, 1961) and Ronald Jackson (May 23, 1961), Department of Corrections officers Paul Jordan (Jan. 24, 1976) and John S. Dennard (May 5, 1983), Union deputy Renee D. Azure (Aug. 6, 2002) and Department of Corrections officer Adam Sanderson (March 6, 2009). Bradford County Sheriffs Department Capt. Brad Smith and Lawtey Correctional Institution Warden Barry Reddish will perform the roll call for Bradford Countys fallen officers: sheriffs George W. Epperson (Dec. 25, 1885), Henry W. Epperson (Jan. 20, 1890) and David Levy Alvarez (May 30, 1891), Bradford deputy Andrew J. Kite (Feb. 21, 1899), Starke Marshall Jeff Jones (Nov. 19, 1903), sheriffs Everett E. Johns (Dec. 6, 1905), Joe A. Bennett (Aug. 9, 1907) and J.W. Langford (Aug. 23, 1912), Bradford deputy W.T.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Williston pitcher Trent Johnson struck out 11 and doubled in the game-winning run in leading the Red Devils to a 3-0 win over Union County in the District 71A baseball championship game on April 24 in Williston. The 6-4, 180-pound Santa Fe College signee allowed three hits and no walks. Union County threatened to score in the fourth inning when Cole Kite reached first by beating out a throw from third base. Garrett Hersey then singled, advancing Kite to second with no outs. Johnson then struck out Chris Starling, and Williston catcher Haden Cano picked off Hersey at first. Corey Hersey then grounded out to the shortstop to end the inning. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Fort White scored two runs on errors in the top of the eighth, while pitcher Rhett Willis struck out eight batters in three innings Lowery admitted. We beat everybody during the regular season. We won all our meets. I thought we would be top five. I had no idea that we could win it. Junior Dakota Hodge, who was the runner-up in the 129 class, said, We thought we had a chance to win. Thats all we needed. Hodge finished with a 435-pound total to finish behind 5 pounds behind West Floridas Roland Stark. Hodges bench press of 235 pounds was 10 pounds better than every other lifter in the class. I figured I might actually come in around third or fourth, said Hodge, who had a clean and jerk total of 200, but then luckily someone scratched their last few lifts. Blanton had a bench press of 255 and a clean and jerk of 240 to finish with a 495 total and place behind 139-pound class champion Ronnie Tucker of Altha and runner-up Isaac Gonzalez of LaBelle. Tucker and Gonzalez had totals of 555 and 510. Honestly, I didnt care what place I got as long as I got our team points, Blanton said. Musselman finished with a personal-best total of 600 poundsa bench press of 310 and a clean and jerk of 290. That placed him behind Tavares Jose Barajas, who won the 169 class with a 635 total, and Althas 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 of Ag IN HAMPTON AUTO REPAIRS SALES SERVICE Major & Minor Repairs Brake Work Foreign & Domestic A/C Repair Transmission Specialist Low Labor Rates Computer Engine Diagnostics and MORE!Family Owned & Operated for over 20 years!

Going in, I had already looked at all the totals from all the other (state-qualifying meets), Musselman said. I knew I was going to get within the top three. I went in there just knowing if I did my best, Id be able to score for our team. Steve Beverly is just a sophomore, but he apparently had no jitters as he was able to place fourth in the 129 class with a bench press of 230 and a clean and jerk of 195. Beverlys total of 425 actually tied him with North Bay Havens Gavyn Collins and Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, but he placed ahead of those two lifters because of the weigh-in tiebreaker. Those three points Beverly earned by placing fourth were huge. Without him, we dont win it, Lowery said. Though finishing out of medal contention, senior Brandon Johnson did place in the top 10, placing ninth in the 154 class with a 515 total. He had a bench press of 275 and a clean and jerk of 240. Senior Darein Gilio placed 12 th in the 199 class with a 585 total. He had a bench press of 300 and a clean and jerk of 285. Ill be honest with you, Lowery said. When Darein didnt score a point, I thought, We cant win it. This years field, though, proved to be pretty competitive. Aside from Keystone and Baker finishing in a tie for first, three schoolsArnold, Suwannee, West Floridafinished tied for second, while two schools Altha, Warner Christian finished tied for third. Plus, each of the individual state champions were from different schools. Lowery talked to Vernons coach prior to the start of the meet, saying a bunch of schools had to score points to give someone other than Baker County a chance. Baker County was the state runner-up in 2012 and 2013 and won four straight state titles from 2008 to 2011. The good thing about this years meet was everybody had a lot of good kids who could score points, Lowery said. Nine schools were within five points of winning. Lowery said Keystone placing first is quite an accomplishment considering that it has to lift against a lot of larger schools that it wouldnt compete against in most other sports. Thats why the end result left him feeling blessed. God is awesome, Lowery said. Thats what I thought. Stop and thinkwe had six kids lifting. Four of them placed, we had no (individual) state champions and we still won a state championship. That doesnt happen. This year, it did, and it made for quite a return trip home. Oh, on that ride I was pumped, Blanton said. I was so excited the whole ride home. I had the trophy in my arms. I was looking at it the whole time. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a rematch of one of last seasons Class 4A regional quarterfinal games, but there would be no seventh-inning rally for the Bradford High School softball team this year as the Tornadoes just couldnt get the hits they needed in a 2-1 loss to visiting South Sumter on April 23. South Sumter freshman pitcher Marissa Mesiemore, who hit a solo home run in the sixth inning that proved to be the game winner, gave up just two hits in propelling the Raiders (16-8) to this past Tuesdays semifinals, where they hosted P.K. Yonge (22-3). She did a great job of getting the ball inside on our hands, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said of Mesiemore. We had a tough time hitting the ball harda lot of pop-up outs in the infield when she got inside on us. We just never really made the adjustment to turn on that pitch. Bradford (18-8) hosted South Sumter in last years regional quarterfinals as well, scoring two runs in the bottom of the seventh to win 3-2 and fuel a run to the state semifinals. This year, the Tornadoes did put the tying run on in the seventh with no outs when Jaci Atkinson drew a walk. Mesiemore, though, struck out Sabina Watson and Lindsey Wiggins before forcing Mackenzie Gault to hit an infield pop-up. We just didnt do enough offensively to be able to pull it out, Davis said. If you give up one or two runs, you feel like youre going to have a chance to win, but we just couldnt put the runs on the board. Mesiemore reached on a dropped fly ball to lead off the top of the second. Bradford pitcher Ashton Adkins struck out the next two batters, but hit Vicki Medina with a pitch to put two on with two outs. Shelby Spruill then hit a ground ball to third, but an error on the play at first allowed Tyana Ramirez, who was running for Mesiemore, to score and put the Raiders up 1-0. Thats one we dont make very often, Davis said of the two-out miscue. South Sumter ends BHS softball season Jarvis DeSue and Austin Long competed for Bradford and Union County, respectively, at the Florida High School Athletic Association Finals in boys weightlifting, with each finishing just outside of the top 10 of his weight class. Unions Long competed in the 129-pound class, placing 12 th with a total of 380. His bench press of 215 pounds was the fifth-highest total in the class. Longs overall total was 45 pounds less than that of Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, who earned the last medal in the class with a sixth-place finish. Bradfords DeSue had the ninth-highest bench press total (280) in the 154 class and finished 13 th with a 495 overall total. He was 90 pounds behind Baker Countys Dalton Dyal, who earned the last medal with a sixth-place finish. Bradfords DeSue, Unions Long miss topout of Santa Fe Lake. One fisherman produced a 50-pound catch that consisted of only six catfish. The fisherman was using crappie minnows for bait. The pungent smell of fish beds was noticeable at the boat launch during the April 24 Sampson Lake Bass Tournament. The wind was blowing in a southeasterly direction, and some of the fishermen noted that the smell was very strong on the northeastern shore. The timing would suggest that shellcrackers or a combination of shellcrackers and bluegill would most likely be responsible for those bedding indicators. These fish are probably being stimulated by the forthcoming new moon, which will reach its full phase on April 29. The saltwater front seems to have been dampened by Easters cool weather. Most inshore reports remained centered around flounder, trout, reds and black drum. There are reports of whiting on east coast beaches, and for those who look for fishing variety, there are reports of croakers and yellow-mouth trout in the St. Johns River around Green Cove Springs. Reports of summer cobia near the beaches are spotty at best. Hunting season in Florida is over with the exception of hogs and rabbits, which can be hunted all year. Georgias spring gobbler season will continue through May 15. Bass tourney results At the April 23 Bald Eagle Tournament, Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec placed first. Joey Yarborough and Ryan Rentz were second, while John Breton and Chuck Foster were third. Kadlec landed the big fish. Trevor Corbitt and Drew Rogers teamed up for first at the April 24 Sampson Lake Tournament. John (last name not available) and Jason Jordan placed second, while Jonathon Nash and Richard Kingston were third. Nash had the big fish. FINS Continued from 4B Bradford High School senior catcher David Hall signed a letter of intent to play at Jacksonvilles Trinity Baptist College during a signing ceremony on April 25. Hall will join teammate/ second baseman Wyatt Collins, who signed with Trinity Baptist on April 11. See next weeks Regional News section for a more in-depth story. Trinity Baptist signs BHS baseballs Hall Fort White defeats Tornadoes in or relief to lead the Indians to a 6-4 win over Bradford in the championship game of the District 5-4A baseball tournament on April 24 in Alachua. The Tornadoes (17-10) held two leads, including a one-run lead going into the seventh. We just couldnt close the door, said Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan, whose team will travel to play the Villages in a regional quarterfinal game on Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. It was 4-3 in the top of the seventh when Fort Whites Willie Carter launched a home run over the fence in left field to tie the game. Duncan accepted responsibility for the homer, saying it was not the intent to throw anything near the plate that Carter could get a hold of. Carter was responsible for Fort White beating the Tornadoes 10-9 early in the regular season. We just shouldve put him on and not thrown to him, Duncan said.

away from first baseman Austin Green, allowing Willistons Noah Faircloth to score from second. After the game, Tomlinson credited Johnsons pitching performance as well as his offensive production. Hes got a bright future ahead of him, Tomlinson said of Johnson. Hes going to college for a reason. Both teams advance to the Class 1A regional semifinals on Tuesday, May 6. Williston will host Wildwood, while Union County will travel to Pierson to take on Taylor High School. Austin Langworthy led off the Williston seventh with a double to the gap between left and center fields. Cano then singled, advancing Langworthy to second. Johnson doubled to right-center field, driving in both runners. Williston scored an additional run in the sixth inning after Union County head coach Brian Tomlinson replaced starting pitcher Jordan Bryant with Ty Cook. With the bases loaded, Johnson grounded to third base. The Tigers got the first out with a force play at home, but catcher Corey Herseys throw to first got A fielding error put Fort Whites Brent Beach on with one out in the top of the eighth. Bradford pitcher Caleb Polk struck out the next batter before giving up a single to Jayson Brock, putting runners on the corners. A throwing error on a ground ball by Ryan Ellis allowed the winning runs to score. It was that kind of night for the Bradford defense, which committed errors in all but three innings. They were in this game because of our errors, Duncan said of Fort White. We just did not make the plays when we needed to. An error allowed Fort White (14-11) to score the games first run. Leadoff batter Brock opened the game with a single and eventually scored on a dropped fly ball to put the Indians up 1-0. Bradford answered in the bottom of the first. Leadoff Jackson Reddish was hit by a pitch. Holden Huggins entered the game to run for Reddish, stealing second and third before scoring on Wyatt Barnes single. The Tornadoes went up 2-1 in the third when Carson Yowell, who reached on a double, scored on Jacob Lukes sacrifice fly. Fort White tied the score at 2-2 in the fourth. Austin Dupree hit a leadoff single and advanced on a bunt by Kodey Owens before eventually scoring on a bunt by Corey Pentolino. Bradford pushed two runs across in the fifth. Yowell drew a leadoff walk and advanced on Barnes sacrifice bunt before Luke drew a walk. David Hall drilled a single down the firstbase line to score both runners. Barnes and Matt Stanwix-Hay each went 2-for-4. Stanwix-Hay was the only batter to get a hit off of Willis, who entered the sixth inning in relief of starting pitcher Dupree. The Tornadoes regional quarterfinal opponent is coming off of its third straight district championship, but the Villages (15-8) was a Class 1A program prior to this season. The Buffalo defeated Trinity Catholic 7-6 to claim the District 6 crown. The winner between Bradford and the Villages will advance to the Tuesday, May 6, semifinals to play the winner between Fort White and Trinity Catholic (188). Bradford would have to travel to face either team. Visit www.StarkeJournal.com to view more photos from this game. (Membership required.) Tornadoes advanced by defeating Raiders Bradford was held hitless in the district semifinals, but still advanced to the championship game, defeating third seed and host Santa Fe 2-1 on April 22. Though they didnt have a hit, the Tornadoes took advantage of three walks and a hit batter, as well as good baserunning by Huggins, who was 2-for-2 on stolen-base attempts. His counterpart may have thrown a no-hitter, but Bradford pitcher Luke (4-1) fared pretty well himself, giving up just two hits and striking out nine in a complete-game performance. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR BOARD MEETINGS WILL BE HELD ON THE 1 st TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH AT 6:00 P.M.

AGENDAS AND NOTICE OF CAN CELLATION WILL BE POSTED ON www.keystoneairport.com NO LAT ER THAN 72 HOURS IN ADVANCE. 5/1 1tchg-B-sect Legals The Tornadoes tied the game in the fourth, with Taylor Cruce hitting a lead-off double and scoring on Adkins line-drive single back up the middle. Kaylen Chitty, who entered the game to run for Adkins, was left stranded on first as Mesiemore struck one batter out and forced two others to hit fly balls to the outfield. Adkins, who gave up six hits and no walks, recorded one of her 11 strikeouts to open the top of the sixth. Mesiemore, though, drove a 3-2 pitch over the fence in center field to put the Raiders up 2-1. South Sumters McKayla Peninger was the games only batter with multiple hits, going 2-for-3. It was a tough way for seniors Adkins, Gault and Wiggins to go out. Davis said the three players always gave maximum effort and that their leadership will be missed. Thats tough to replace, Davis said. Itll be interesting to see who steps up as leaders next year with a good group coming back. Five starters on this years team are juniors, while one is a sophomore. All but one of those players were starters on the 2013 team that had so much success. I think theyll come back hungry, Davis said. I hope that this can be kind of a springboard into next year for them to be focused and ready to go. REGION Continued from 8B Hay makes a throw from BHS Continued from 8B UCHS Continued from 8B
