Keystone 4 th graders take 3 rd at math competition Clay commission works on special events ordinance Stewart wants no repeat of Ham Jam BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGSClay County commissioners sent a special events ordinance back to committee after Commissioner Chereese Stewart said she wanted more measures in the pending law to reduce traffic congestion and noise levels during large events. Commissioners first started looking into an ordinance that Tax collector moving Keystone KEYSTONE HEIGHTSThe Clay County Tax Collector will have a new home in Keystone Heights on May 27. Tax Collector Jimmy Weeks is moving the operation to Suite 10 of the Keystone Village Square Shopping Center. The retail center is located at 7380 S.E. 100. It is also home to Hitchcocks Grocery and Family Dollar. Weeks said moving to the new location will offer more parking, greater accessibility for handicapped patrons and more convenience overall for the community. Lake Region Financial planner: 56 percent say they dont save enough BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor KEYSTONE HEIGHTS A Lake Region financial adviser gave Keystone Heights business leaders a primer on financial planning during the May meeting of the Keystone-Lake Area Business Association. Dana Marcus, a financial adviser with Capital City Banc Investments, cited a Federal Reserve analysis that said 56 percent of American households Camp Montgomery gets new director KEYSTONE HEIGHTSTerry Patterson has been appointed as Montgomery Presbyterian Centers new executive director. Patterson was born in Clifton Forge, Va. in 1964. His father worked and retired from CSX and his mother was a registered nurse. Patterson holds an undergraduate degree in Parks and Recreation Administration from West Virginia University and dual masters degrees from North Carolina State University in Parks and Recreation Administration and KH mom drives through Starke to cut drive time to Jacksonville Commuter Profile See EVENTS, 2A See MOVE, 2A See PLANNER, 2A BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Monitor Summer Shepherd typically gets up at 6 a.m. each workday and is out the door by 6:45. Shepherd works in Jacksonville, and like many--perhaps most-Lake Region residents, she is a commuter. By about 7:40 a.m. one day last week, she was in Baldwin. She is also a mother of two. Some days the kids get up early, but most days her husband Daniel gets the kids breakfast; gets them dressed and off to school and picks them up again at the end of the school day. Daniel also commutes-to Starke. He does most of the cooking too, Shepherd said. Although once or twice a week I cook dinner after I get home. Were pretty good about sharing the household chores. It takes Shepherd one hour and ten minutes to get to her Jacksonville workplace, Inky Fingers, a Riverside digital design house and print shop. Shepherd works there as a graphic designer. She is on the road a minimum of two hours and twenty-minutes each day, round trip, or about 13 hours a week, an extra week of work related hours each month. All told, thats almost three extra months of work related hours per year. About once or twice a month, she said, a traffic accident or other road closure stops traffic, usually in Jacksonville, and she can sit still or crawl bumper to bumper for up to an additional hour per event. Shepherd is not a Jacksonville transplant who moved to the Lake Region but still yearns for the city. In fact, she grew up in Florahome and graduated from Keystone Heights High School. She is also on Facebook. Her FB friends have followed her history over the last few years as she applied for various jobs and then lost or left them. Money and supporting the family was almost always the primary issue. The reason I dont try to get jobs in Gainesville is because I can get about four dollars more per hour in Jacksonville, Shepherd said. In Gainesville, youre competing with too many art and design students who have no kids and will work for little or nothing. Prior to her present job, she worked at a Jacksonville print house and was the only graphic designer in the shop. It got a little lonely. She changed to her present employer where she enjoys the company of other designers and more challenging design projects. She says she is much happier now. She also cut 10 to 15 minutes off her drive, or about an hour and a half each week, she said, but thats not why she changed jobs. It was the family budget that led her to get a new car when she first started working in Jacksonville about two years ago. Today, she drives a 2011 Honda Insight, a hybrid. As is, she still spends $50 to $60 per week on gas. She is very particular about where she gasses up. She shops in Jacksonville, where she says gas is ten cents cheaper per gallon than in the Lake Region. She is also particular about her route. She used to take S.R. 21 north through Middleburgh and Orange Park, to I-295 as many Keystone Heights commuters do. Instead, Shepherd said, she takes S.R. 100 to Starke and then U.S. 301 to I-10. There are more traffic lights and more traffic going up S.R. 21, she said. When she used that route it took her an hour and a half to get to work, three hours round trip. As she has come to know Jacksonville a little better over the last few years, she can dodge traffic slowdowns by getting off I-10 and taking Normandy Boulevard to U.S. 301. She listens to radio traffic updates as she travels. In the morning, she has time to wake up on the way to work, and after work, she has time to shake the office out of her system and get back into mommy mode while driving home. Listening to the radio is not all she does as she drives. She also talks on her handsfree phone: to her friends for a daily update on what they all did last night; or to her mother for some motherdaughter bonding. She checks in by phone to see if the kids are on track and getting their homework done. She calls her husband to go over their dinner menu. She does not, however, text while driving unless shes stuck in a traffic jam. The drive definitely affects her moods, Shepherd says. She notes that she encounters road rage behavior fairly often. I get honked at once or twice a day, she added, but thats always in Jacksonville, never in Starke. Shepherd does not have a favorite part of her daily drive, there or back. Its all pretty good, usually, she said, but she also referred to the daily drive as a Keystone Heights resident Summer Shepherd gets to her job at Inky Fingers in Jacksonville after an hour and ten minute drive from home. Like many Lake Region residents, she spends almost two and one-half hours per day driving back and forth to work. See COMMUTE, 2A See CAMP, 2A Report: No obstructtions on Alligator Creek BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A survey of Alligator Creek commissioned by the St. Johns River Water Management District found no obstructions to water flow along the water way into Lake Brooklyn. The study, by Liquid Solutions Group concluded that seepage from the creek into the surficial aquifer system does occur in the section of the creek between Lakes Magnolia and Brooklyn. It also recommends several management activities that could improve the flow of water from Magnolia Lake to Lake Brooklyn. The activities include clearing vegetation around the Greble Road and Treat Road culverts within Camp Blanding, regrading a natural gas pipeline easement that runs under the creek, maintaining and removing fences that cross the creek and clearing and grading between Timberlane Drive and a power line easement. The report estimates the total cost of the management activities to be $63,800. The survey, which examined Alligator Creek from Stevens Lake in Camp Blanding to Lake Brooklyn found no impediments to the creeks flow between Stevens Lake and Magnolia Lake.

Most of the students have plans to continue their education in the field of health. Jailene Garcia Laura Danis Jessica Garcia Dayshia Jenkins Joshua Knight Rachel Lee Morgan Lord Chris Meiers Nathan Nelson Ashley Norris Brandon Nicholas Diana Ramos Ann Roberts Charles Rogers Tara Shobris Courtland Singletary Santana Wallace would regulate large events last September. At that time, representatives of Extreme Outdoor Enterprises and a Clay Hill property owner said they wanted to produce bluegrass festivals, large flea markets, battle of the bands concerts, motocross competitions and other events that could attract up to 5,000 participants to a site near the intersection of C.R. 217 and C.R. 218. The organizers asked the county for permission to allow alcohol consumption, amplified music, overnight camping and all-terrain vehicles for mud bogs. During the May 13 commission meeting, Stewart told her colleagues she did not want a repeat of the First Coast Ham Jam, which was held at a farm off Carter-Spencer Road from 1993 to 2001. In 2002, officials discovered the countys land code did not permit alcohol sales and outdoor concerts on the agriculturally zoned property. They refused to grant organizers a variance to continue the event. The one, great, bad example that I can think of is the Ham Jam, Stewart said while going over the special events ordinance with Director of Economic and Development Services Holly Parrish. I can tell you for citizens that went anywhere around District 4 on those weekends, it was-awful is a really kind word. You sat on (C.R.) 218 and any other road that got to it for hours, not being able to go anywhere. Stewart said the barbecue and music event also created parking headaches in the Middleburg area. Then on top of sitting in traffic for hours, people parked everywhere: on the sides of county-maintained highways... (and) ditches. Stewart also said she heard reports of similar problems caused by the Hog Waller Mud Bog in Putnam County and by the Trucks Gone Wild event in Hortense, Ga. Same thing-sit in traffic, she said of the other events. Anybody that lives in the neighborhoods where these special events may beI think traffic flow is going to be an issue. Parrish told Stewart that the ordinance requires event organizers to provide adequate on-site parking. She also said it requires medical and law enforcement staffing according to a sliding scale based on anticipated attendees. Stewart asked that the law be sent back to a committee and that staff take into consideration traffic and noise controls that Putnam County or Hortense, Ga. has implemented. Commissioners unanimously endorsed Stewarts idea. In other news from the May 13 meeting, commissioners: Approved public hearings for proposed ordinances that would ban political signs and tents erected by campaigns on parcels used as precincts or early voting sites, limit the size of campaign signs on agricultural and agricultural/residential parcels to 32 square feet and prohibit election signs on vehicles at precincts or early voting sights that exceed two square feet. Supervisor of Elections Chris Chambless said the new legislation is needed. He said before Eagle Landing officials agreed to allow its clubhouse to be used as the countys newest and sixth early voting site, they expressed concerns about signs; Approved a public hearing to extend the countys moratorium on transportation impact fees for an additional year. Commissioners Ronnie Robinson and Wendell Davis said they favored abolishing the impact fee altogether. Commissioner Doug Conkey said the extension of the moratorium will give future Clay County commissions more options in dealing with growth; and Voted to discontinue the countys recyclable operations and seek a contractor to handle the work. EVENTS Continued from 1A Other Clay County government offices such as the clerk of the court, property appraiser, supervisor of elections and sheriffs office will also have use of the new facility. Weeks opened the Keystone office at 275 South Lawrence Blvd. in 1999 Originally staffed on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Weeks expanded its hours to five days a week in 2006. Denise Proctor is the office manager in the Keystone Heights branch. Office hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. MOVE Continued from 1A are behind where they should be in saving for a comfortable retirement. That same survey said that of the 44 percent who say they are preparing for retirement, only half expect to retire with the same standard of living they now enjoy. He said that financial planners help their clients analyze life insurance needs, establish programs to meet the costs of educating children or grandchildren, provide estate planning strategies, review portfolios and asset allocations and plan to accumulate funds for retirement. Marcus also said a key issue he helps his clients sort through is the degree of risk they are willing to accept in order to achieve the investment returns they desire. He said that many savers are frustrated with low rates of return on safe bank savings accounts, which now earn around 0.10 percent. He added that with inflation rates of between 2 and 2.5 percent, you are losing your money safely. You are not keeping up with inflation, he said. You are losing your purchasing power. Marcus pointed out that with a three-percent inflation rate, a person would need $140,693 in 35 years to purchase the same amount of goods and services that can be acquired with $50,000 now. He also presented statistics from the Social Security Administration that showed in 2010, 29.6 percent of retirees income came from working, 36.5 percent came from Social Security, 18.5 percent came from private pensions, 12.7 percent came from asset income and 2.7 percent came from other sources. PLANNER Continued from 1A Marcus pain in the butt. Still, the commute allows for some out-of-town shopping on some kinds of items. Shepherd said she does not shop for groceries in a Jacksonville store, but will make a weekly stop in Starke on the way home. About once a week, though, the family eats take-out dinners and shes more likely to stop for Jacksonvilles greater variety, she said. Shepherd recently started her own graphic design company on the side. She broadcasts and advertises on Facebook. She works from home, and has a few clients. She has designed wedding invitations, flyers, advertisements and tons of business cards, she said. Soon, she will begin printing T-shirts. Id like to eventually set up shop somewhere in Keystone, Shepherd said. Unfortunately for young people in this area there arent a lot of job opportunities. Thats why everyone drives somewhere else. Eventually, Id really like to be self-employed and not have to drive so much anymore. COMMUTE Continued from 1A Public Administration. He also earned an Associates Degree in Christian Theology. Patterson has spent the bulk of his 25-year professional career in administrative positions in the 4-H programs of North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. In addition to camping and conference center programs, Patterson has experience in improving infrastructure and preventative maintenance. He also has a background in community relations and volunteer programs. He has been an active member of the American Camping Association sectional board for many years. He has also served as an ACA standards visitor and ACA standards visitor trainer. He is married to Susan Patterson and they have three children: Samantha, who is an avid horse trainer; Taylor, a classical violinist and Hope, who holds a blue belt in Karate.

My name is Clu Wright and I am running for the Clay County Commission District 4 seat which includes Middleburg, Keystone Heights, Clay Hill, Kingsley Lake and McRae. I have served in the public safety field for over 25 years. I started off volunteering for the St. Johns County Fire Service in 1980 at the age of 16 until 1988 when I got hired as a paid firefighter for the City of Palm Bay. I worked in Palm Bay until 1991 when I moved back to St. Augustine and went to work with the Clay County Public Safety Department from June 1991 until August 2012 when I retired. I have received several recognitions during my tenure as a public safety official including a gubernatorial recognition (Jan. 17, 1985) Firefighter of the Year (Oct. 13, 1986), Life Saving Award (1998), Bureau Chief (2008) and nominee for Fire Marshal of the Year (2012). I have also served as an expert witness in criminal court proceedings and depositions. I have been married to my wife, Loretta for 14 years and we have three children. One has just graduated from Keystone Heights High School and has enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. Our middle child is attending Keystone Heights High School and our youngest child is attending McRae Elementary School. I am an active member of Gadara Baptist Church and believe the most important aspect of Clay County is faith, family and your word, which is the cornerstone of a community. Clay County needs an outspoken Republican conservative who does not back down from tough decisions or political pressures, who fights for everyone and shows equality to all, who is fair and just with strong work ethics and values, who will listen to all residents to make the decisions of the people, who supports law enforcement and public safety in all aspects and who believes in small government, low taxes, a fresh start and concern for the community. I can make no guarantees, but with my commitment and your help we can have lower taxes, less government and more paved roads. We can stand up to Clay County government, and have equality for everyone. I have no hidden agenda in Clay County. District 4 is the biggest district in Clay County and has been neglected for years. We are the forgotten district. You need a Republican commissioner that is a God-fearing conservative that does not bow down to political pressures, who will fight hard for each of you and will keep Clay County government small and one that believes in low taxes. With your vote, we can stand up to Clay County government which wants to continue to spend your hard-working money. By you making a commitment, taking a stand and voting for a candidate, you can make Clay County a better place. With the Wright conservative, you can prove this with your vote for me, for lower taxes, less government, strong character, a fresh start, concern for the community, so you will be heard. Visit, www. votecluwright.com Here are some of the issues I believe are important to District 4 residents. 1. Roads are an integral part of our countys transportation system and believe me when I say we have a road problem here in District 4. We know we can never pave all the roads, but the county and the past commissioners of District 4 could have paved one or two roads a year and we would not have the problems of today. Our roads need to be sufficient for emergency vehicles like fire, police, rescue and emergency management. I have seen fire trucks, rescue vehicles and police vehicles buried in the sand going to or coming from emergency calls. This can have a devastating outcome if these vehicles cannot make it to the scene. I will fight for the improvements of our roads in District 4. 2. Taxes are a sore subject and the commission never likes to lower or abolish some of the socalled taxes the county collects and has imposed on the citizens of this county. With your help we can reduce or eliminate taxes such as the utility tax, which could save $1.5 million to $3 million a year, and was so unfairly imposed upon us. 3. We can lower the fire insurance premiums countywide with huge savings to all citizens. Anyone who lives more than five miles from a fire station and 1,000 feet from a fire hydrant knows that the fee for premiums will go up. 4. The garbage tax is another sore subject and is a tax that the county imposed on the citizens. This is the highest tax the county collects from the citizens as a sole tax. My garbage tax is $230 a year. Multiply that by the number of residents and you will be surprised at the millions of dollars it takes to fund this. Another fee the citizens are imposed to pay is the Rosemary Hill Landfill fee for dropping off trash in excess of 500 pounds a month. Why would you need to pay this fee if we are already being taxed? 5. I have been following the developing story of the Big League Dreams concept, and I must say, I am somewhat surprised of the numerous citizens I have spoken to who are against this development. The $19 million that will be given to Big League Dreams is at little or no cost? That is bond money designed for transportation to fix our roads and believe me we have a road problem here in Clay County that nobody wants to address. If Big League Dreams purchases the land, designs, builds, hires employees, takes care of their own property and pays taxes, then this is what you call economic growth for a community, which in turn leads to economic development. My suggestion would be to place this item on the ballot and let the citizens make the decision if they want a park that costs $19 million taken from their transportation fund. In closing, Big League Dreams entices cities and counties, influencing them to think with their hearts, and ignoring their fiduciary responsibilities. 6. The lakes in Keystone Heights have been neglected for years and no one wants to take the blame, or they give people false answers to lead them away from the real truth. The St. Johns River Water Management District states, The current low water levels in the lakes are largely caused by reduced rainfall over many years, even decades. In this area, the karst terrain of limestone and sandy lake bottoms allows water to naturally seep from the lakes downward into the aquifer system. Some lakes in the area have active sinkholes that drain water into the aquifer. Water withdrawals from surface and groundwater sources can also affect lake levels. Why arent the lakes inside Camp Blanding (Lowry Lake and Lake Magnolia) draining or even low? Pictures tell the truth to anyone who sees that Lowry Lake flows into Magnolia Lake and Magnolia flows through Alligator Creek into Lake Brooklyn. So I ask the State of Florida, the St. Johns River Water Management District and Camp Blanding: Where is the water? In 1973, a court order mandated a maximum elevation of 105 ft, NGVD, for Lake Geneva, which affected downstream water levels. In another instance, outflow from Magnolia Lake was stopped by a court order, but this reduced the downstream flow to Lake Brooklyn, Lake Geneva, Old Field Pond, and Half Moon Lake. The state expected the water level to rise about three feet in Magnolia which would not be a threat to anyone. With the Wright conservative, we can get our water back in Keystone Heights. So if you want to know where the water is, the courts have stopped the flow. 7. Move the County Commission meeting from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. to better serve the citizens of Clay County. 8. Cut the school impact fees in half, to bring back construction jobs, and to lower the tax burden on the citizens of Clay County. If you would like to get a CLU on issues I will find the WRIGHT answers for you. The following is a statement of intent to run for public office submitted by the candidate. Hello! My name is Abbie Andrews and I am running for the District 4 seat of the Clay County Commission. Have you ever wondered what the board of county commissioners is and what it does? The board of county commissioners is the legislative body of Clay County. There are five members that are elected by single-member districts. Each member serves for four year terms and is only able to serve two terms. The board is not only the legislative branch of county government, but also the policy-making branch. Each commissioner is accountable to the citizens of the county and is responsible for adopting an annual budget for the operation of Clay Countys government. My goal is to be the next representative for District 4. I was born at St. Vincents Hospital in Jacksonville and raised in Clay Hill by my parents, John Shu Shu and Mary Lou Wilkinson. I spent a lot of time during my childhood playing with my younger brother, B.J. At the age of eight, I began raising steers to show at Cracker Day in Clay County, the Northeast Florida Fair in Callahan, and the Jacksonville Fair. I had the Grand Champion steer at the first Clay County Agricultural Fair. I was not a stranger to hard work. Not only did I raise my own animals to show, I also helped my parents when they raised chickens for Tyson and spent many hot days baling hay. At that time, I didnt like the work. However, looking back, I now see that it created a strong work ethic and determination to set and reach new goals. Those characteristics are what drive me to meet new challenges today. I have always attended a Southern Baptist Church. I attended Long Branch Baptist Church as a child and now attend Highland First Baptist. I have a strong faith in God and believe every word of the Bible is the true Word of God. My beliefs and values are what will help me make good, conservative decisions as your commissioner. I met my future husband, Jarrad in 1992 at the Jacksonville Fair. We married in 1994 at Russell Baptist Church in Lake Asbury. In November of 1997, we welcomed our firstborn son, Wyatt. Along came a little brother, Morgan, in August of 2000. Together, Jarrad and I run a successful cattle business in Clay Hill. We have both dedicated our careers to helping others. Jarrad is a Clay County deputy sheriff and I am a teacher at Clay Hill Elementary School. I also operate a small painting business where I create faux stained glass. My leadership skills began developing at an early age. I successfully ran for student council treasurer in junior high school and was the class secretary my senior year at Middleburg High School. I worked diligently and earned my bachelors degree in 1996 and masters degree in 2010. I am a member of several community organizations such as the Cattlemens Association, Friends of the Clay County Fair, Middleburg Civic Association, Clay Hill Community Association, and the Middleburg High FFA Alumni. I have held several leadership positions at my school throughout the years. I have been the team leader for my department for the last 7 of 10 years. I was the chairperson for our school advisory council as well as the treasurer for the parent faculty association. I began the fall festival tradition at Clay Hill Elementary School and started the heifer show at the Clay County Fair where I am still the superintendent. Clay County is the place I love and have always called home. When you are connected to a place, either by birth or by choosing to live there, you feel a special responsibility to help it prosper. I have told many children that our nations story is still being written and that one day, they will play their part in it. As adults, we need to remember that the story of Clay County is still being written. Decisions made today will affect our livelihoods tomorrow. We need to elect leaders who will listen to our citizens and make the decisions that are best for all of us. We need someone who has compassion and a love for people, someone who has good values and is dependable and trustworthy. As your commissioner, I will be steadfast and honest. I will fight hard for you and keep Clay County moving in the right direction. In February 2013, I decided to seek this office. Since then, I have attended the majority of board of county commissioners meetings. The meetings I was unable to attend, I watched online. I have spoken to many officials and citizens about issues that affect our daily lives. I believe it is important to get both perspectives-from the elected officials as well as the citizens. Attendance at those meetings and conversations with people involved are necessary for anyone who is pursuing this position. Being well-informed will only help me make better decisions for you. I am a conservative Republican who stands firm in my beliefs. I believe in freedom and individual liberty. I do not want the government to control me or my belongings. Put it this way, the government should not own the people; the people should own the government. I do not approve of careless spending and will do my best to keep the county from making frivolous expenditures. Its your money and it should not be wasted! It often seems that the remote areas of our county are forgotten. I assure you that when I am elected; my voice will be heard as I represent each and every one of you. Since entering the race, I have been honored by the outpouring of support that I have received from people throughout the district. I have heard time and time again how people want a principled, conservative leader who will consider the issues carefully and is willing to make difficult decisions. As of today, there are six candidates in this election. You are going to have to make a decision before August. I encourage you to speak with each candidate and decide who you think best represents your beliefs and values. I look forward to hearing from each of you about your concerns and issues that affect our county. Together we can make Clay County a healthy and prosperous community reflective of the values, strong work ethic, and fundamental decency of its residents.

According to librarian Sheree Sims, Clayton has been a long term supporter of the library and a beloved member of the Melrose community. His display embraces the historic charm of Melrose. A new report commissioned by the St. Johns River Water Management District provides a long-term summary of Keystone Heights-area lakes. The purpose of the document by Liquid Solutions Group, entitled Alligator Creek Flow Optimization Project, Field Evaluations and Recommendations, is to put forward ideas to increase the flow of the creek. However the authors also included an 80-year history of problems associated with the Upper Etonia Chain of lakes and solutions attempted by local residents and government officials. 1937The stage in Lake Brooklyn reached what was observed to be an extreme low in 1937. Pre-1942During a period of low water levels, a culvert connecting Lake Brooklyn to Lake Geneva was installed to fill Lake Geneva with water from Lake Brooklyn. 1948During a subsequent period of above-average rainfall, the stage in Lake Geneva increased causing flooding issues. It was suspected that flooding issues on Lake Geneva were caused by the culvert installed between Lake Brooklyn and Lake Geneva prior to 1942. To alleviate the flooding, the size of the outlet from Lake Geneva to Old Field Pond was increased. This resulted in flooding issues on Old Field Pond leading residents in the area to initiate a lawsuit against the City of Keystone Heights. The court action did not result in any changes to the modifications that had been made to the connections between Lake Brooklyn, Lake Geneva and Old Field Pond. 1949The stage in Lake Brooklyn reached what was observed to be a historical high. 1949Mining operations at the DuPont mine were initiated. As part of those operations, a berm surrounding the mined area was constructed to prevent discharge of potentially poor quality water from the mine. Reports appear to indicate that culverts were installed within the berm to potentially control discharge to Alligator Creek. However, reports also indicate that in the 1980s these culverts were found to be collapsed and potentially not capable of flowing at their intended capacity. In general, it is unclear from available reports when these culverts may have been damaged and how that affected the capacity of this discharge location. However, in 1992 the berm in this location was degraded to restore natural flow patterns. Reports indicate the portion of the Alligator Creek watershed within the limits of the mine was originally between 220 acres and 260 acres. 1950sThe culverts that convey water from Alligator Creek beneath Treat Road (between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn) were damaged due to a fire. New culverts were installed over the existing culverts at an invert elevation of 123.5 feet-NGVD. 1953A newspaper article indicates that three springs were uncovered in the bottom of Lake Brooklyn that had previously been buried in 12 feet of sand. The article also indicates that four-foot diameter concrete casings were going to be installed in the springs to allow them to re-establish their flow into Lake Brooklyn. First, three springs being located in Lake Brooklyn is unlikely because Lake Brooklyn is a karst feature that recharges the underlying Upper Floridan Aquifer. Vertical flow is downward from the lake to the aquifer, not upward as with a spring. Second, it is unknown if these concrete casings were ever installed. Installation of concrete casings to increase the connectivity between Lake Brooklyn and the aquifer would not be beneficial to the stage of Lake Brooklyn. In general this story seems unlikely. 1954A new culvert between Lake Geneva and Old Field Pond was installed by court order to relieve flooding issues on Lake Geneva. Newspaper articles indicate the invert of the culvert was intended to be set at 105.0 feet-NGVD per the court order, but that it was suspected that the invert of the culvert was set higher than 105.0 feet. It is important to note that the currently estimated discharge elevation of Lake Geneva is 105.9 feet. 1954 to 1957The stage in Lake Brooklyn declined approximately 20 feet. As a result, the U.S. Geological Survey began monitoring the stage of Lake Brooklyn in July 1957 and the Floridan Geological Survey initiated a comprehensive study of the hydrology of the area which was published in 1963. Mid-1950sAn earthen berm was constructed across Alligator Creek between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn. One report lists two earthen berms installed during the drought of the midto late-1950s, one by local residents for access and one by a local citrus operation for irrigation. However, it is suspected that only one earthen berm was installed by the agricultural operation both as a potential source of water for irrigation and for the owner to access land owned on both sides of the creek. March 1958The earthen berm across the section of Alligator Creek between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn was removed by local residents with authorization from the owner of the agricultural operation due to rising water upstream of the berm and in Magnolia Lake resulting from above average rainfall. Local residents also cleared sections of Alligator Creek upstream and downstream of the berm as part of its removal. 1962Mining operations at the segment of the DuPont mine immediately north of Blue Pond were completed. No mining operations have occurred in the portion of the DuPont mine near the Alligator Creek watershed that is within the St. Johns River Water Management District since 1962. 1966The outlet for Lake Geneva to Old Field Pond was again widened and deepened to alleviate flooding issues on Lake Geneva due to above average rainfall. This resulted in flooding issues on Old Field Pond. The outlet from Old Field Pond to Halfmoon Pond was then deepened and widened to alleviate flooding issued on Old Field Pond, which in turn resulted in flooding issues in Halfmoon Pond. 1973Another period of above average rainfall resulted in flooding issues in the Upper Etonia Creek Basin chain-oflakes, particularly Halfmoon Pond. A court order to maintain Lake Geneva below an elevation of 105 feet-NGVD further exacerbated flooding downstream. In an attempt to alleviate flooding in Lake Brooklyn, Lake Geneva, Old Field Pond, and Halfmoon Pond, a temporary dam was installed in Alligator Creek at the order of the state to stop Alligator Creek from flowing and to retain the water in Magnolia Lake. The dam was later removed, but the exact location and fate of this temporary dam is unknown. 1974Lake Brooklyn was observed discharging to Keystone Lake and Lake Geneva. This did not occur again until 1998. 1987The National Guard replaced the culverts that convey water from Alligator Creek beneath Treat Road (between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn) with a new 60-inch diameter culvert. The invert of the new culvert was installed at 123.1 feet-NGVD. Late 1980sThe culverts within the berm surrounding the DuPont mine located at the approximate location of the natural discharge location of land within the limits of the mine to Alligator Creek were found to be collapsed and were replaced. 1989 to 1991 The section of Alligator Creek between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn ceased flowing due to below average rainfall conditions. Early 1990sLocal residents cleared sections of Alligator Creek between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn once flow in the creek started to return after the drought that occurred between 1989 and 1991. 1992A section of the berm surrounding the DuPont mine located at the natural discharge to Alligator Creek was degraded to allow the area to return to natural drainage patterns. The two culverts that existed at this location were replaced with a concrete channel. Potential obstructions to flow within Alligator Creek downstream of the mine were cleared. Studies indicate that historical mining operations may have increased the watershed, within the Report gives overview of lakes history limits of the mine contributing flow to Alligator Creek from approximately 220 acres to approximately 700 acres. 1994The culvert that conveys water from Alligator Creek beneath Treat Road was lowered. A permit indicates the culvert was supposed to be lowered from 123 to 120 feet, but does not specify a vertical datum. Based on a survey performed in 1990 by the district, the pre-1994 culvert invert elevation of 123.1 feet. However, a recent survey performed by Clay County in 2012 shows the invert elevation of the Treat Road culvert as 121.01 feet. This appears to be approximately one foot higher than authorized under the permit. 1994Areas of sediment build-up in Alligator Creek ,300 feet upstream and downstream of the Treat Road culverts, between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn were removed. 1994The district adopted minimum flows and levels for Blue Pond, Lowry Lake, Magnolia Lake, Lake Brooklyn, and Lake Geneva. 1997Areas of sediment buildup between Magnolia Lake and Lake Brooklyn were removed as part of an effort to clear the conveyance channel of Alligator Creek. Sediment in the channel was permitted to be removed down to a maximum bottom elevation of 121 feet-NGVD. Survey information provided by the district indicates the channel was dredged to a maximum bottom elevation of 121.9 feet. Based on historical survey data provided by the district, the maximum bottom elevation of the channel prior to this dredging effort was 124.1 feet. As part of the work authorized under a permit, a control structure consisting of wing walls, angle irons, and flashboards was to be installed on the upstream side of the Treat Road culvert. These flashboards were intended to be installed so that Magnolia Lake could continue to be controlled at its previous discharge elevation of 124.1 feet after the identified sediment build-up in the creek upstream of the Treat Road culvert was removed. Based on available information and field observation, the creek was cleared of sediment down to a maximum creek bottom elevation of 121.9 feet, but the control structure was not installed. As such, Magnolia Lake has been operating with a discharge elevation of 121.9 feet since 1997. 1998Lake Brooklyn discharged to Keystone Lake from March through May. Lake Brooklyn had not discharged to Keystone Lake since 1974. 2004 to 2005DuPont constructed a pump and pipeline to convey water from their holding ponds north of Treat Road to a channel on the south side of Treat Road. This channel is interconnected with the open water bodies in the southern portion of the historical mining area. Water discharged to this channel is ultimately conveyed to West Lake, which discharges to the Alligator Creek system. This pump and pipeline system is commonly referred to as the Option 7 pipeline. 2011A discharge structure and pipeline connecting West Lake to Blue Pond was constructed. The outlet elevation of the mined area to Alligator Creek at the natural discharge location is approximately 206.5 feet-NGVD. The discharge structure creating a second conveyance connection from the mined area to Blue Pond has a weir elevation of 204.89 feet and a pipe invert elevation of 203.10 feet. This project effectively lowered the outlet elevation of the mined area by 1.6 feet. 2013In mid-March, district staff removed vegetation along Alligator Creek at the outlet of Lowry Lake to allow for infrastructure associated with the Lowry Lake pilot test to be installed. In April and May of 2013, temporary sandbag berm and erosion hardware were installed at the outlet of Lowry Lake to anchor discharge pipes and prevent backflow from the creek. In May 2013, district staff began pumping from Lowry Lake over the temporary berm into Alligator Creek. The test was terminated in July 2013 and the temporary berm and other infrastructure removed.

for Findley. In a 2013 interview with the Telegraph-TimesMonitor, she said the only day of the week shes not in the weight room is Sunday because of church. Most girls dont spend the time in the gym that she does, Griffis said. Thats what separates her from everybody else. That work ethic is important because no one at the meets Findley competes at is pushing her. Shes that much better than everyone else in her weight class and age division. Griffis said because Findley has had no competition, a lot of what she accomplishes at meets comes down to her mental approach. For people, it usually takes somebody pushing them to make them get better, Griffis said. When you dont have anybody pushing you, it makes you kind of lag, but with her, its the opposite. She sees the record, and she wants to go get it. For her part, Findley said, Youve got to find it within world level. People really need to sit up and take notice and really give her the accolades she deserves for what shes done, Union County High School weightlifting coach Bryan Griffis said. How many kids can say, Well, Im going to lift in the worlds, and I stand a chance of setting the world record in my weight class? Whoevers heard of a 17-yearold kid being able to do that? It may be a bigger stage than what shes competed on in the past, but Findley believes she can do well, citing the fact that she has already lifted the world record in the dead lift during her workouts and is close to worldrecord totals in the bench press and back squat. Im pretty excited, Findley said. There isnt any telling what Ill be able to do there. I plan on breaking world records. High goals, to be sure, but Griffis has encouraged Findley to aim high in any goal in life. Dont ever set the bar low for yourself, Griffis said. Set it high. Set it somewhere to where youve got to work to get something. Work has never been an issue BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a typical performance for 17-year-old Union County High School student Kaylee Findley, but typical for her is an outstanding achievement. Findley broke three of her own U.S. powerlifting records in her weight class and age division at the May 11 Southeastern High School State Wars in Columbus, Ga. Not only did Findley break the records in the bench press, dead lift and overall total, but she set a personal record in the back squat as well. I went there with a mindset of what I was going to do, and I accomplished it, said Findley, who will be a UCHS senior next year. I felt very confident going into the meet. And why shouldnt she have felt confident? Her first-ever powerlifting event on July 7, 2013, resulted in her winning the heavyweight class in her age division, setting three records and receiving an invitation to join Team USA. Exactly one year later, Findley will leave for St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, to compete at the spend a lot of time talking about drainage and the handling of rainwater. Im sure there were other issues, but those two stand out as kind of recurring problems over the time I served.

Thurs: 7:15 PG-13Hugh Jackman in Bryan Cranston inX-MENDays of Future Past PG-13 BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Times and Monitor Growing up on a farm during the agricultural heyday of the town of Brooker provided local resident Evan Winfield E.W. Hodges with a strong grounding in the value of hard work, community and faith, which has served him well for all of his 84 years. Born at his family home in Brooker to parents Evan W. and Ruby Mae (Greene), Hodges said he grew up as a typical farm boyplaying ball, fishing with his friends Jack and Doyle Hazen and the Hayes brothers, and staying out of the way of his four sisters. There was plenty of farm work to occupy his time as well, as his father operated a large truck farm. When he was old enough and had learned to drive, his father put him to work transporting farm produce. He remembers one triphis longestto New York City. I drove up there and arrived at night, Hodges said. It was big and bright, and I was ready to come home almost as soon as I got there. Hodges attended Bradford High School, where he remembers Della Rosenberg as one of his best teachers. Later, while working as a bus driver at the school, he remembers providing transportation for some of her classes field trips. This was how he met his future wife, Yvonne Brooks. I have never really figured out why, but Miss Rosenberg seemed to have a serious problem with Yvonne and I seeing each other, Hodges said. She even came right out and told Yvonne not to marry me. The couple married anyway when Yvonne graduated; she was 17, and he was 23. Evidently it turned out to be a better match then their teacher had thought since they had been married for 60 years when Yvonne away last December. Hodges became a traveling salesman for Suntech Paint of Gainesville and traveled over much of the southeast, visiting hardware and paint stores. Yvonne occasionally traveled with him until their first child arrived and she became a stay-athome moma role Hodges was happy for her to play. The growing family moved several times in connection with Hodges work, living, among other places, in Nashville and Jackson, Miss. They always seemed to find their way home, however, and the family retained strong roots in Bradford County. The couple had three children Randall (deceased), Mark (deceased) and Kim (Morgan) who provided them with six grandchildren. Although Hodges said he did really well as a salesman, he wanted to stay closer to home to spend more time with his family. He opened Hodges Building Supply and Paint on SR 100 in the late sixties and settled down to be part of the local community. Hodges was a member of the Starke Rotary Club for many years, serving one year as president. He served as president of the Suwannee River Economic Council in Bradford County for 16 years, from its inception in 1998 until his resignation for health reasons in April of this year. He is a longtime member of the Masonic Lodge in Brooker and attends Trinity Baptist Church in Keystone Heights. Along the way he also found time to serve for 12 years on the Bradford County Commission, from 1972 until 1984. He remembers that the problems considered by that body have not changed much over the years. Roads were always an issue back then. Probably more than today because fewer of them were paved then, Hodges said. Besides roads, we seemed to Growing up on Brooker Farm provided Hodges life values E.W.

BY MICKEY AGNER Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor What young adult would not like to start a career that would last a lifetime, pay a good salary and ensure employment? Additionally, if the preparation time for that career started in high school and at the most lasted one year post high school graduation, would that not make it more attractive? Well Christy Reddish, director of the Bradford-Union Technical Center, indicates that she provides that opportunity in the centers licensed practical nursing program and the centers Health Science Academy. The LPN program graduates between 90 and 100 percent of its accepted students. Almost 100 percent of those students who complete all of their program requirements are employed. All of the student requirements can be completed in a years time, and according to LPN.com, the average annual LPN salary in Florida is about $40,000. Additionally, none of the noted positions are in danger of being outsourced, and the health care field is one of the most reliable and employable fields for qualified applicants. Needless to say, Reddish is describing a very attractive health program. More importantly, the accolades for the program do not stop there. The fact that the program lasts only one year does not carry a time factor benefit only. Less time means less expense, and accordingly, the programs yearly expenses will total only slightly over $6,000. That will be less direct Technical Center LPN program: a great educational opportunity While Hodges worked at his business and served the community, Yvonne joined the workforce. After the kids were grown, she wanted something to do, so she became a secretary at Hampton Elementary School, Hodges said. She worked under Principal Lynn Register and was there for about 20 years. A bad fall earlier this year sent Hodges to rehab to strengthen his legs, but he said the prognosis is good and he looks forward to returning to his normal activities soon.

Bradford Independent was made up of students from such high schools as Buchholz, Orange Park, Clay, Fleming Island and West Nassau, as well as Bradford and Union. Several students from colleges such as Santa Fe, Florida State College at Jacksonville and the University of North Florida were a part of the group as well, rejoining some of their former high school band mates and band directors. There were quite a few participating schools that had no student representation, but supported the group by loaning instruments and providing what resources they could. For example, Keystone Heights and Baker County high schools didnt have any students in the groupat least for this year but those schools directors were willing to do whatever they could to help the effort. Tempest said the directors had the mindset of, I love the idea, and thats something that can help grow music in our area. There are other percussion groups in the state that charge as much as $900 to $2,000 per season, Tempest said. Those groups, he said, also put in a lot more hours of rehearsal time. By relying on a support system of various schools, Bradford Independent was able to charge a participation fee of $600. As for rehearsal time, the group took into account the fact that many of BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It may not have the resources and time commitment of other groups, but Bradford Independent Percussion has talent, which proved itself by earning a thirdplace finish the Independent A class at the March 28-30 Florida Federation of Color Guards Circuit Championships, which were held in Daytona Beach. Bradford High School band director Cody Tempest was the co-director of the Bradford Independent group, which consisted of approximately 40 members from various high schools and colleges, including three students from BHS Hunter Cooper, Logan Gowens and Micah Hulingand one from Union County High SchoolWilliam Brown. Weve combined resources with a lot of local schools and local band programs, Tempest said. Its a kind of rather large activity that a lot of these small schools dont really have the resources or the funds or even the students needed to make one of these groups happen just at the high schools by themselves. Several different schools kind of pitched in and made it work.

Its a way of exposing advanced band students especially those at smaller, rural-area schoolsto more challenging opportunities that often arent available to them. That comes in the form of getting them together with advanced students from other schools and performing with the best of the best, whether its among fellow Bradford Independent members during practices or among students from throughout the state at competitions. Very often, our more talented students leave (high school) and go unchallenged, Tempest said. Each high school has their own best drummer, and theyre usually the best drummer they know because they dont have the exposure. The idea was, get a lot of this talent together and kind of get them in the same pool challenging each other. That was definitely a goal of ours this year, to challenge our upperlevel students and give them something to work at above and beyond the normal levels that our small high school programs can offer them. its participating students had jobs they had to be at or were involved in their churches on Sundays. The Bradford group practiced 10-12 hours on Saturdays only, whereas a lot of other groups practice on multiple days. Still, the Bradford group made an impression in early season competitions. We had a really high level of talent among our students that we were pulling from, Tempest said. However, during midseason, other groups began overtaking Bradford at competitions as their extra hours of rehearsal time started to show. Plus, there was a three-week stretch of competitions that prevented the group from rehearsing at all, Tempest said. They may not have devoted as much time in rehearsals as other groups, but the Bradford Independent members certainly worked hard to do as well as they could. They were really pushing themselves and pushing each other within the constraints that we had to really reach and achieve as much as possible, Tempest said. What it eventually resulted in was a noteworthy showing at the FFCC Championships. Definitely, if we were at the commitment level some of these other groups were atfinancially or timewise we couldve been a lot more successful with the season, BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If a classroom has a shortage of textbooks and no funds to purchase more, students can share books. A schools band program has no such option if there is a shortage of instruments. The difference is two people cant share a trumpet, Bradford High School band director Cody Tempest said. Tempest, who is in his second year at BHS, is calling on the community to help support the program. If anyone has instruments they arent using whether its a former high school band student who has his or her instrument sitting in a closet or attic, or a professional player who no longer has need of a certain instrumentthey are encouraged to consider donating it to BHS. The band program has already received donations from several ex-military musicians. Such a donation would go a long way in helping Tempest build the band program back up to the level it was at in the 1970s and 1980s. Tempest said the BHS band consisted of as many as 150 kids those years. Its doable here, he said. However, the program doesnt currently have the number of instruments to support such a large program. Tempest said when he took over as director, the program had a lot of instruments that that had a cumulative total of $150,000-plus worth of damage. A lot of the programs budget goes toward instrument repair, but it only amounts to chipping away slowly at a large amount, Tempest said. Tempest spends quite a bit of time attempting to fix what he can on instruments, which ensures that the instruments stay in the classroom. If sent away for repairs, a student could be without an instrument for up to two weeks. Thats why Tempest is asking on the community to help out. He pointed out that the band program has already benefited greatly, with parents and community members gladly volunteering their efforts. The community is been so supportive, Tempest said. If youd like to help, please contact Tempest at 904-966-6072 or tempest.cody@mybradford. us. Donations are tax deductible. Receipts of donations are available upon request.

Dear Editor: So very often we exercise the freedoms that we take for granted. Freedom of speech: to say anything and everything we want without somebody in authority telling us we cant. The remarks can be so vile and distasteful that we wonder how a person can get away with it. It is given to us by the constitution under the Bill of Rights. You and I know it as the First AmendmentWe really take this one for granted as we do the fourth amendment. That one says that we can gang up anywhere and anytime and gang up with the Second Amendment and give the devil or anybody as much hell as we care to without fear of reprisal from the government. Now how much of this do you and I take for granted? Probably all of it! At first we would want to call that stupid and in a way it is. If one loses sight of the fact that its a God given right handed down to us by way of the US Constitutions Bill of Rights. Well, you say, the First Amendment and the Fourth Amendment give me those rights. If you think it ends there you really have your head up the wrong place. Let me give you something to think about because you are not thinking yet. If it were not for the SECOND Amendment we wouldnt have anything except an overly dominating government. Dont tell me its not possible. All you have to do is look around the world at all of the government controlled countries. Every day we are waging wars to keep the government that we have. I think that the NRA is leading the fight to make sure that we have a Second Amendment, which in turn allows us to have a First, Fourth and all of the other freedoms that we take so much for granted. If it is at all possible, support the NRA and the work that they do.

expense, less money borrowed on educational loans and/or less money to qualify for on a needs basis. Conversely, the short preparation and reliable employment suggests a faster recovery time for the expenditures. Additionally, the nursing program offers growth potential and the opportunity to qualify for that growth while working. In the 2003-04 school year, Clarence Desue was the technical centers director, and Reddish was the assistant director. Reddish wrote the LPN program application, which was accepted, and the first year of the program started in 2004. More to the point, the application and the course requirements were closely articulated with Santa Fe College. Consequently, students who complete the program can easily bridge over into the Santa Fe College registered nursing program, and the previously completed work greatly facilitates the students progress in that program. LPN.com puts the average annual RN salary in Florida at almost $60,000. The only downside to the LPN program is that its appeal has become well known, and entry, due to class size limitations, has also become competitive. The minimal qualifications for application to the program are as follows: Test of Adult Basic Education with an 11.0 gradelevel score. Test of Essential Academic Skills with an 11.0 grade-level score. Be at least 18 years of age. CPR card. Applications are accepted during the second semester and are due in March. High school students interested in a career in the health care fieldand especially the technical centers LPN programshould talk to the one of their high school or technical center counselors. These students would greatly benefit by enrolling in the Health Science Academy. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School senior Blake Richardson became the third baseball player in the Telegraph-Times-Monitor coverage area to sign a letter of intent with Trinity Baptist College, doing so during a May 15 ceremony in the KHHS media center. Its exciting, Richardson said. Ive always wanted to play baseball after high school. I didnt want that to be the end of it. Im just excited to play in college. Richardson will join Bradford High School seniors Wyatt Collins and David Hall, who signed letters of intent in April. They will be part of a brand new program, but a program that is hitting the ground running, according to head coach Jon Copeland, alluding to a competitive first-ever schedule. Were just glad to have Blake be a part of that, Copeland said. Were expecting some really, really good things from him. Of being a part of a first-year program, Richardson said, Itll be fun to start from scratch and just be able to work and get better. Richardson has been playing baseball since the age of 6. Hes always loved the sport, he said, and worked especially hard during his junior and senior years to put himself in position to get an opportunity at the next level. When I kept getting a bunch of emails from (Copeland), it really hit me that I had a good chance to go on to college, Richardson said. Keystone head coach Alan Mattox can attest to the amount of work Richardson has put in and said he was happy to see it pay off. Its really gratifying from a standpoint that Ive been able to watch Blake develop since his seventh-grade year, Mattox said. Mattox said he has seen Richardson develop into a mature player who is not only a tough out at the plate, but a standout on defense as well. I think just his anticipation of plays, Mattox said when asked what makes Richardson such a good defensive player. He sees the ball so well. He tracks the ball well and sees it off the bat really good. He gets to the point where he fields the ball and gets it out of his hand quickly. He cant wait to graduate from high school and get started as a player at the next level, Richardson said. Plus, he will be joined at the school by some of the players on his travel team. I have a bunch of friends going there, so its going to be fun, Richardson said. Mattox said the next level will bring better overall competition and a faster game, but he believes Richardson has what it takes to meet those challenges. With his work ethic, I see him having no problem adjusting to the higher level of play when he gets to college, Mattox said.

Findleys first powerlifting event was the USA Powerlifting Central Florida Open Championships, at which she set records for bench press, dead lift and overall total. That effort qualified her for the July 19-21, 2013, Raw/Unequipped National Powerlifting Championships. Findley placed first in her weight class and age division. In October 2013, Findley competed at the USA Powerlifting Southeastern USA Regional Championships, where she won the gold medal in 12 divisions and broke seven records. Sounds like a pretty good day, but Findley said, It wasnt my best meet at all. Though basically a newcomer to the sport, Findley told the Telegraph-Times-Monitor in 2013 she felt as if powerlifting was her destiny, saying, My dad was in it. I guess I just had a big interest in it for a long time. Shes certainly made her mark so far and is looking forward to doing so when she moves up in age division, which will happen when she turns 18 in December. Findley said she has no doubt shell set records during her first year of competition in the higher age division. The amount of weight shes been lifting is certainly impressive, but Griffis said whats just as impressive is the fact that Findley is up front about her faith. Not many kids are willing to stand up on a platform and say the reason theyre doing it is for God, that theyre wanting to please him, Griffis said. She does that. It makes you real proud of a kid whos like that. Competing at such events as the one in St. Croix costs money. A plane ticket for one to St. Croix costs $1,400, Findley said, plus she will need to pay for a hotel room and apparel that lifters are required to wear. In all, she will need approximately $5,000 for the St. Croix trip. Findley and Griffis are looking for sponsors or anyone who is willing to give any amount. Whatever theyre able to give, we dont care, Griffis said. The slightest little bit helps. The community has already supported Findley with previous competition costs, and for that, she and Griffis are grateful. Findley said the giving spirit especially when it comes to supporting youthis what makes the Lake Butler/Union County community so special. They help you out no matter what, Findley said. They put you before themselves. If you are interested in helping, please contact Findley at email@example.com or Griffis at 352-494-1362. Who knows? You may be able to say you assisted in bringing a world championship to Union County. Griffis, for one, is confident that Findley can shine on the world stage. She never ceases to amaze me, Griffis said. LIFT Continued from 1B LPN Continued from 2B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Theyve been getting in shape and learning formations and plays since May 1. Now, the football players at Bradford, Keystone Heights and Union County high schools will get the chance to hit someone other than their teammates when the teams participate in games on Friday, May 23, at 7 p.m. Bradford will travel to Newberry for a three-team game that also includes Dunnellon, while Keystone will travel to St. Augustine to take on Menendez. Union will remain home, hosting Duval Charter. Last year, Keystone was the only one of the three teams to cap its spring with a win, though you could also say Unions varsity team came away a winner after a 6-6 tie against defending Class 2A champ University Christian. Daquin Buddy Edwards had a third-quarter touchdown run that put the Tigers up 6-0. University didnt score until the fourth quarter, which featured Union junior varsity players. The Indians played Menendez last spring as well, pulling out a 9-6 come-from-behind win on the last play of the game when Michael Carroll took a short Wyatt Harvin pass and turned it into a 21-yard touchdown. Keystone scored on its first possession of the game when J.J. Schofield kicked a 34-yard field goal. Bradfords varsity players didnt fare too well in a 35-23 loss to Fleming Island as the Eagles led 35-14 at the half, with four of their five scores covering 36 yards or more. The Tornadoes played mostly younger players in the second half, though varsity running back Travon Thomas had a 14-yard touchdown run in that half to finish the game with two scores. He had a 4-yard scoring run in the first half and finished the game with 59 yards on 10 carries. Quarterback Jacob Luke, who was 8-of-17 for 161 yards, threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Dinkins for Bradfords first score. Dinkins finished the game with six catches for 148 yards. Football teams end spring with May 23 games Enrollment into the Health Science Academy qualifies the students to take a series of high school elective classes, such as Medical Terminology, Cardio Technology, Respiratory Care, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. An additional benefit of the noted elective classes is that they can serve as college credit if the student passes a qualifying endof-class test. (In this regard, the noted Health academy elective classes are dual-enrollment classes.) Interestingly also, Chemistry and Anatomy can be taken as Health Academy classes. These two classes can serve double duty as required high school credit and dual-enrollment credit as well if the same end-of-class test is passed. Furthermore, college credit given for the above dual-enrollment classes carries no tuition. The perks of the Health Science Academy do not stop there. Once the Health Academy students graduate from the program and high school, they are certified phlebotomists and certified nursing assistants. Both of these health care professions are also highly employable. This could provide immediate employment for high school graduates and the ability to work part time while engaging in the LPN program or other collegiate health care programs. Salary. com puts the average annual CNA salary in the United States at about $30,000.

Tempest said. Considering what we had and that we were able to get third place in the state in our circuit that we compete in, we definitely had a strong showing. Tempest said giving the more advanced students opportunities that allow them to grow as musicians can also pay off for a schools entire band program. For example, Tempest said he saw one of the Bradford High School members of the Bradford Independent group showing other BHS students what he had learned from being part of that group. Its kind of infectious in a good way to the students around them, Tempest said. Tempest expressed his thanks to the administration at both Bradford High School and Bradford Middle School, where the majority of rehearsals were held. He also thanked the schools athletic directors for their help in the group being able to use the schools gymnasiums.
