Following Cody Lee Williams erroneous arrest in 2013, Beseler suspended Det. Johnny Hawkins for 10 days without pay and transferred him from the special victims unit to the patrol division. The sheriff also disciplined a deputy and two supervisors in connection with the Williams errant arrest. After the Clay High School student was released, Beseler said, An innocent man was accused of a terrible crime he didnt commit. Arresting an innocent person is something we fear far more than letting a guilty person get away. I extend to Cody Lee Williams my apology for this error and we will seek to make things right for him.Property values recovering from 2012 lowThe just value of Clay County real and personal tangible property reached $13.2 billion Just value is the value of property without any exemptions or statutory limitations taken into account.

FEC questions Yoho donationsBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Federal Elections Commission is questioning contributions made to Congressman Ted Yohos reelection campaign. In a May 16 letter, an analyst with the FEC asked about a $2,700 donation labeled PASS THE HAT DONATIONS @ CANTERBURY EVENT 3.18.14 in the campaigns finance report for the first quarter of 2014. The line item referred to a fundraiser Yoho held at Newberrys Canterbury Showplace Equestrian Center. Federal candidates cannot accept anonymous contributions of more than $50. The FEC letter asked Yoho Campaign Treasurer Laura Jackson to amend the quarterly report, clarifying how much, if any of the $2,700 collected in Newberry was from any single individual contributing more than $50. The FEC also asked Yohos campaign about donations from three businesses: The Ridge Veterinary Medical Society Inc., B&G Produce and Wyoming Horse and Cattle Co. Donations from corporations and labor unions to federal campaigns are illegal unless the donations came from separate political funds set up by the organizations. The FEC told Jackson that if any of the three donations came from corporations, she must return Petition drive to appoint superintendent falls shortBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGSBackers of an effort to replace Clay Countys elected superintendent of schools with a non-partisan, appointed leader failed to turn in enough signatures to get the issue on this years ballot. Children Over Politics, which describes itself as a non-partisan, grassroots organization, aimed to get two citizens initiatives before voters in 2014. One would change Clay Countys superintendent of schools from a partisan to a nonpartisan position. The second initiative would have changed the superintendents job from an elected one to an appointed one. In order to get one initiative on the ballot, the group needed 9,709 signatures. To get both changes on the ballot, it needed 19,418. By the June 6 deadline, the group turned in 2,040 signatures. The day before the deadline, Children Over Politics said it was suspending the petition drive. Virginia Collins, chairwoman of the group, wrote in a press release that a regrettable event took place that is forcing us to suspend any further petition submissions at this time. Collins added in the release that we are conscious of our obligation to protect petition signers and supporters from Development authority board member defends ballpark dealBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor MIDDLEBURG-A board member of the Clay County Development Authority said his groups proposal with Big League Dreams to build a $19 million recreational sports complex near Branan Field Road was a good deal for Clay County, until estimates for the projects costs exceeded the countys budget. Greg Clary spearheaded the development boards effort to land the complex and was a vocal supporter of the proposal, even though he joined his fellow board members in killing the deal during a May 22 development board vote. Political opposition to the complex, led by County Commissioner Ronnie Robinson, had been growing. Robinson said he opposed the complex because it would have been financed by a $19 million bond issue backed by the county. Clary said the political climate did not influence the development boards vote. It had nothing to do with the political rhetoric, he said. I want to repeat that again. Clary said the board approached the proposal in a businesslike manner and backed out of the deal solely because cost forecasts exceeded the countys budget for the project. Clay taxable property values increase for second yearGREEN COVE SPRINGSProperty Appraiser Roger A. Suggs said the taxable value for Clay County real estate increased to approximately $8.4 billion as of Jan. 1, 2014. The increase marks the second consecutive year values have risen in the county. Suggs said the majority of residential home values increased and the majority of commercial property values increased slightly. The valuation is based on market value adjusted for exemptions and statutory caps to arrive at taxable value. One statutory cap is a 1.5-percent annual limitation on the amount the taxable value of a homestead can increase. Commercial properties are also limited to a 10-percent increase each year. Those caps are based on constitutional amendments passed by voters in 1992 and 2008. Suggs said that although new construction in Clay County is still significantly lower than the peak of $650 million in 2006, new construction during 2013 increased by 45 percent over the previous year, from $92.9 million to $135.2 million. Percentage increases in taxable value, and the value of new construction, for the taxing authorities in Clay County include: BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGS For the second time in 10 months, the Clay County Sheriffs Office has arrested the wrong person. On Aug. 30, 2013, deputies arrested Clay High School student Cody Lee Williams for sexual assault. The 17-year-old spent 35 days in jail before the sheriffs office realized the man they were looking for was Cody Raymond Williams, also a Clay High School student. On May 27, 2014 deputies arrested 28-year-old Ashley Nicole Chiasson for defrauding a financial institution, after identifying her as the woman who tried to cash a fraudulent check inside an Orange Park Wells Fargo Bank branch on March 25. According to a sheriffs office report, the suspect provided a bank official with a Louisiana drivers license as identification. The fraudulent check was made out to Ashley O. Chiasson. In addition, when a deputy ran a check on the suspects name, two people with the name Ashley Chiasson came back, neither with a Louisiana license. The responding deputy also wrote that the survalience video from the bank was not available at this time. Sheriffs office spokesperson Mary Justino said that on June 6, investigators discovered that the actual perpetrator of the fraud attempt was another individual who shares the first and last name of the woman they arrested. Justino said the two women also share the same physical characteristics. Justino said that after the discovery, the State Attorneys Office dropped all charges against Chiasson and correctional officers released her from jail. Sheriff Rick Beseler issued a statement on June 10, about the mistaken identity of Chiasson. In these cases it appears that short-cuts were taken by the detectives during the suspect identification process and a thorough investigation into the identity of the suspect was not completed before the warrants were obtained, he said. The result was the wrong person was accused of crimes she didnt commit. I extend to Ashley Nicole Chiasson my sincere apology for this error. We will seek to make things right for her. An internal investigation began immediately and a full review of how proper investigative procedures were not followed is underway. Those responsible will be held accountable. New measures, safeguards and revised policies will be adopted Putnam deputies looking for Florahome teen FLORAHOME       Putnam County deputies are looking for a teenager they say ran away from home Monday.

See OFFICE, 5A Summer in the City kicks off for local youthBY KAREN LAKE Special to the Monitor KEYSTONE HEIGHTSLocal leaders and volunteers have kicked off the first areawide summer program called Summer in the City. The programs goal is to engage local teenswho have historically been house bound during the summer monthsand give them an outlet to enjoy activities with members of the community in a positive setting. Initially, the idea was sparked by social workers and administrators at Keystone Heights Junior and Senior High School who saw a need for ongoing interaction. As a result, many members have come forward and teens now have four days of fun-filled events available to them. On Mondays, Trinity Baptist Church volunteers offer activities on the churchs campus. On Tuesdays, members of First Baptist and Freedom Baptist host students at Keystone Beach. Lake Swan Camp welcomes the students on Wednesdays and students return to the beach on Thursday for activities managed by workers from the Keystone Heights Assembly of God and the Keystone Jaycees.

OPEN THURSDAY thru SATURDAY (352) 222-0286 350 Lawrence Blvd, Keystone Heights Open House BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGSClay County emergency management officials released the countys new hurricane evacuation map on May 30. The new map replaces the old, single evacuation zone with three zones: A, B and C. During an approaching storm, Zone A would be evacuated first, then B and finally C. In previous maps, officials only took into account wind speed and storm surge along major water bodies such as the St. Johns River, Black Creek and Doctors Lake. This years edition also takes into account freshwater storm surge which expanded Zone C to include most of Fleming Island. It also added an area bordered by C.R. 220 (Doctors Inlet Road), U.S. 17, C.R. 209 (Russell Road) and Henley Road. Zone C also extends along the north fork of Black Creek into Jennings State Forest and along the south fork into the Thunder Road area, west of Penny Farms. Most of the over 10,000 homes added to the evacuation zones are on Fleming Island and along C.R. 220. Also new to the 2014 hurricane season will be the National Hurricane Center issuing storm surge maps which will forecast the degree of rising water in the path of an approaching storm. NHC officials said that storm surge is often the greatest threat to property and lives during tropical cyclones, but the general public does not understand nor takes into account the threat. The maps will classify storm surge into one of four groups: up to three feet above ground, greater than three feet above ground, greater than six feet above ground and greater than nine feet above ground. Clay County officials also identified storm shelters for the 2014 season. Standard shelters include Argyle Elementary School, RideOut Elementary, Tynes Elementary, Green Cove Springs Junior High, Clay Hill Elementary, Shadowlawn Elementary, Coppergate Elementary, Lake Asbury Junior High, McRae Elementary, Oakleaf Village Elementary, Oakleaf Junior High, Oakleaf Senior High and Plantation Oaks Elementary. Pet-friendly shelters include Orange Park, Clay and Keystone Heights high schools. the money within 30 days. When asked about the letter during a Keystone Heights campaign event, Yoho said the money marked as pass-thehat donations were actually $30-a-piece gate receipts for the event that a campaign worker misidentified in the FEC quarterly report. Yoho also said the campaign immediately returned the three contributions from the businesses after discovering they were from corporations. Yoho added that the type of inquiry letter his campaign received from the FEC on May 16 was common among federal campaigns and that virtually all candidates receive one during the course of an election cycle.Continued from 1A intimidation and retaliatory actions, and we do not want to jeopardize anyones job. When asked about the petition drives suspension during a telephone interview, Collins confirmed that the regrettable event she referred to in the press release was a May 2 incident at the Clay County Supervisor of Elections Office in which Tim Nguyen, a supporter of current schools superintendent Charlie Van Zant, made a public records request to inspect the petitions and subsequently requested a copy of one of the names on a petition. When asked why she waited a month after the incident to suspend the drive, Collins replied that her group used the PETITIONContinued from 1A time to evaluate its options and to weigh the risk that school district employees might bear if they signed a petition. When asked how many signatures the group had collected but had not yet turned in, Collins replied thousands and thousands. However she could not provide an exact count. Collins said that even before the May 2 incident, school district employees were hesitant to support the measure, fearing retaliation from school district administrators. District spokesman Gavin Rollins declined to speak on the record about the petition drive, other than to say that district officials have stayed away from the issue. He also denied that any district employees faced retaliation for signing the petitions. Collins said her organization is now seeking legal counsel. However, Supervisor of Elections Chris Chambless said that the ballot initiatives are over. The elections official said when he heard about the group halting its petition drive, he called Collins to remind her that June 6 was the deadline for submitting signatures. I respect her decision, said Chambless during a June 6 interview, but after today, there are no mulligans. They had a budget of $19 million, he said of county officials. The two estimates came to-Im going to round offto about $25 million-plus to do the facility at the level the vendor felt like would be a successful facility. Clary also said that with hindsight, he and other supporters of the project acted responsibly in pushing for the sports complex. We made a tremendous effort to try to bring 2,000 to 3,000 jobs to this area, he said. It is an opportunity missed for the county. Unfortunately, that is one opportunity that we wont be able to do because it was a little more expensive than the county had the money for.

The new helicopter, specially modified for aeromedicine, has been assigned the designation of ShandsCair 1 and replaces the smaller EC135 in use at ShandsCairs Gainesville base during the past year. This addition is much more than just a new helicopter for UF Health, said Ed Jimenez, UF Health senior vice president and chief operating officer. It is a lifeline for residents of north central Florida and the entire state who require advanced critical care during their transport. Flying at speeds reaching 180 mph, the new orange and blue helicopter is equipped to carry as many as two patients and a three-member flight team in addition to the pilot up to 360 nautical miles, enabling specialized medical teams to transport patients to Gainesville from as far away as the Florida Keys, Atlanta or Pensacola without stopping to refuel. By comparison, the two ShandsCair EC-135s at the Perry and Summerfield bases can transport one patient plus two crew members and travel at speeds of approximately 135 mph within a smaller geographical area. This helicopter expands our capability to transport even the most complicated cases including patients with ventricular assist devices or balloon pumps, high-risk obstetric patients and newborns, and bariatric patients faster and farther than ever before, said Staccie Allen, R.N., ShandsCair flight program director. The level of care we provide is significantly enhanced by the increased speed and distance we now can travel. When the time came to plan the replacement of its Gainesville-based aircraft, it became clear that a $12 million investment in a new helicopter to expand the capacity to serve patients throughout Florida and improve hospital transport times was the appropriate decision. Med-Trans Corporation, a leading air-medical operator based out of Lewisville, Texas, operates ShandsCairs new EC155 as well as the two EC-135s in the fleet. ShandsCair is recognized as one of the foremost air medical flight programs in the industry, said Rob Hamilton, chief operating officer of MedTrans. We very much value our partnership with UF Health and we are pleased to play a role in their ongoing dedication and service to the many critical patients in need of air medical transport throughout the ShandsCair service region. Approximately 40 percent of ShandsCairs 4,700 annual transports are dispatched in response to prehospital emergencies. The remaining percentage involve interfacility transports, where specialized medical crews bring patients from other hospitals to UF Health Shands Hospital, often transferring patients who are too ill to be transported by other aeromedicine or EMS agencies. With this helicopter, we truly are bringing UF Health to the patient, Jimenez said. From the moment ShandsCair arrives, patients begin receiving the same state-of-the-art advanced care for which UF Health is known. This continuity of care provides patients the best care possible anywhere in the state.   Every ShandsCair transport, whether by helicopter, ambulance or fixed-wing airplane, is staffed by a unique combination of medical personnel selected to meet the specific needs of the patient being transported. Depending on the needs of the patient, we select paramedics, physicians, perfusionists, respiratory therapists, nurses or specialists from numerous disciplines so we can provide the right care for every patient, every transport, Allen said.Community Church rummage saleIts rummage sale time at Community Church, located behind Ace Hardware in Keystone Heights.

The report goes on to say that channelization would significantly reduce seepage in this segment of the Creek. It is also stated that some water may currently be lost to adjacent ground water basins, and that reducing this loss could facilitate the conveyance of some new water into the Alligator Creek system. Although the Survey recommends other creek management activities such as clearing vegetation and removing fences, the conclusion states only a slight benefit in the stage of Lake Brooklyn. Addressing the 2 to 6.5 mgd seepage loss described above may provide more meaningful results. It seems reasonable to evaluate this measure that may provide significant benefit if acceptable to property owners and without harm elsewhere. This Alligator Creek survey also provided a fifty year history of the Keystone lakes with a listing of notable events. An important item not mentioned would be the 50 year change in lake and underlying Floridan Aquifer levels. SJRWMD Hydrologic Reports clearly show a strong downtrend in the lakes and ground water (well C-0120). The Floridan beneath the lakes has consistently declined an average 2-3/4 per year for over 50 years (12 Ft). Computer models indicate that regional ground water withdrawals significantly contribute to this depletion. With more advanced USGS specified transient modeling, these adverse impacts may be found to be even greater than currently estimated. It should be emphasized that these lakes provide natural regional aquifer recharge. Prudent planning would indicate bringing water to the lakes to help address the large water supply shortfall in the coming decades (256 mgd by 2035) as shown in the SJRWMD District Water Supply Plan 2013. Finally, the Keystone Community will not unfairly benefit from projects bringing water to the lakes. Residents can never recover the lost years (decades) of healthy lake assets, but rather these water resources that have been depleted largely at the benefit of others can be rightfully restored.

Downtown shop owners will be invited to place signs on their buildings once the research is complete. The Richard and Pace building housed one of Starkes earliest department stores. It and another building tucked away behind it were significant because they stored much of the merchandise delivered to and from Starke on the railroad during Starkes formative years.

Gordon Smith took the hot seat in the dunking booth in the name of raising funds as well. The renovation of the dealership began in February and was completed in late May with a hefty multi-million-dollar price tag. Director of Operations/ Human Resource Manager Frank Bisacky said the process involved the complete refurbishment of both the exterior and the interior of the existing structure and was geared to both improving service to the customers and to making their experience at Murray Ford a pleasant one. Everywhere one looks, there are details designed to enhance the customers experience, from granite counter tops in the restrooms to new, highdefinition televisions and vending machines (offering a wider range of choices) in the customer waiting area. Also new is the business center, which offers high speed Internet for customers use while they wait. Wi-Fi is available over the entire lot outside to allow customers to look at the dealerships inventory online while they walk around. The service department has also been improved and augmented, being the main factor in the cost of the renovation. New lifts have been installed that can handle recreational vehicles up to 53 feet in length. New electronic equipment has been added, which allows the service department to work on any make and model. The new Murray Quick Lane Tire Center is designed to serve everyone and carries a full line of tire types and sizes for passenger vehicles. We spent a lot of money to give our customers better, quicker and more complete service, Bisacky said. We have improved the quality and scope of our service department and the breadth and depth of our entire operation. We are part of this community. This is a family owned business, not a big corporation. Our first concern when making any decision is, What is the right thing to do? That is what we do. A customer is not just a salethey are members of our community, and we want to do the best job we can in meeting their needs. BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor The Northeast Florida Regional Chamber of Commerces Tourism Development Council wants to attract more attention to Starke and Bradford County history. What they really hope to accomplish is to highlight Starke and Bradford County history, using resources at hand. Those resources include the Eugene Matthews Bradford County Historical Museum and now plaques highlighting the Call Street historic district. The Call Street district is included in the National Registry of historic places and covers a large swath of downtown Starke. Over the last few months, research has been completed, and metal plaques have been added to four buildings with roles in Starke history and Call Streets cityscape. More plaques are planned. The hope is to have a selfguided walking tour of Starke and Call Street history up and down the blocks. The first building already identified is the Richard and Pace Building, which sits on the south side of Call Street, right at the railroad tracks. Its companion building, the first Bradford Bank (now housing Tony and Als Deli), sits right next door and also has a new sign. Two additional buildings got signs last week: the chamber building, which is also the second Bradford Bank building, and the Magnolia Hotel. All of those buildings except the chamber building were constructed in the late 1800s. The chamber building was constructed during the early years of the 20th century. The Richard and Pace building replaced a former wooden frame that may have been victim to a fire. The Bradford Bank was the New signs highlight Call Street history side of her building.

I kick myself every now and then for ever stopping working, Griffis said. I miss the work and the satisfaction that comes from building something. the field of business in which he would excel. He went to work for Jimmy Moore at Moores Sun Spot in Starke, located where Walgreens is now. Moore built fiberglass boats and sold Mercury outboards. Griffis quickly found a niche in the business. People were making boats and selling boats, but nobody was repairing fiberglass boats so I learned how to do it, Griffis said. Griffis worked for Moore a long time for minimum wage until one day he asked for a 15cent raise. When Moore refused, Griffis gave his two weeks notice. Griffis had taken over the $18,000 mortgage on a piece of property owned by his father at the behest of Bud Mizell of Southern Discount (now CT City Financial). He rebuilt the house on the property and built a workshop to start his own business making fiberglass boats. Griffis and Sons opened for business, producing Stumpknocker Boats in several styles. Named after a small panfish in the bream family known for being stubborn and mean, the boats were an immediate success. The boats were really nothing fancy, Griffis said. They were just Cracker fishing boats, but people seemed to like them. Son Woodrow Jr. took over the main running of the business, but Griffis did not completely retire until about three years ago. The Stumpknocker name and assets were sold in 2004 to All Craft Marine. In 2009, Woodrow Jr. went back into the business as Griffis Fiberglass and has been successful working with St. Augustine Marine. Woodrow Jr. said he owes everything to his father. He taught me everything I know about fiberglass and building boats, he said. Griffis now spends his days feeding a yard full of squirrels and four goats and keeping his numerous bird feeders well stocked. He also enjoys watching Westerns on television and listening to vintage country music, especially the music of Hank Williams Sr. Despite all this, he is occasionally restless in his retirement. of it. We also got to see a lot of castles and old, historical places and things. When he arrived home from Germany, Griffis wasted no time in going to work. Hampered by his lack of education (he was only able to complete the second grade due to family responsibilities), he bought a truck and went to work in the scrap metal business. Some time later, he went to work as a mechanic for Shorty Livey at his garage in Starke at the corner of Pratt Street and U.S. 301, where he said he worked on a lot of vehicles from the Hercules Powder Company. Griffis married Olga Pauline Michaelchuck in 1947. The marriage lasted 57.5 years and produced five children: Viola, Victor, Woodrow Jr., Lucille and Eleanor. Griffis now presides over a large family, which includes 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Family is the most important thing to me, Griffis said. I value greatly any time I can spend with them. In 1961, Griffis started out in fighting, but just in time to join the occupying force. They moved on into Germany after two weeks in France. The war in Europe was over, but it was still smoking when we arrived, Griffis said. They were still fighting in the Pacific, but that really didnt affect us. Spending two and a half years in Germany, Griffis worked picking up and delivering prisoners and helping to chase down SS members still at large. Most of the German people were not Nazis, or if they had joined them, it was in name only, Griffis said. Many of them were forced to join the party to keep their families safe. As for the SS, most of the big guys had gotten out of the country, but there were still quite a few of the lowerranking men to the rounded up. Griffis saw service all over Germany in places like Mannheim, Darmstadt and Frankfort. He said the German people were a little unfriendly at first, but over the time he was there they seemed to become easier to get along with. While Griffis and his friends were kept busy, they never were subjected to the horrors of the concentration camps. They also found time to do a little sightseeing on their time off. Griffis remembered seeing the worlds largest wine keg in Heidelberg. The thing was so huge it had never been totally filled up, Griffis said. They said that a king one time filled it up about half way. It was so big that there was a dance floor built on top Thursday, June 12, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 3B Noegels Auto Sales888-964-64611018 N.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Monitor and Times While most people think of World War II-era military service in terms of battles, marches and invasions, there were many who served in support positions both during and after the conflict. These jobs were just as necessary and sometimes carried more responsibility than the combat positions. As one longtime Bradford County resident put it, Someone had to clean up the mess and see that problems didnt start up again. Woodrow Griffis Sr. was born on Jan. 26, 1929, on his parents farm, located about 1 mile from where Camp Blandings A gate is now. His father, Leonard, and grandfather, Henry, had adjacent 40-acre homesteads. Both men farmed to feed their families and were accomplished horse traders, which had less to do with horses as it did with bartering for needed items. It was during the Depression, so no one had any money, Griffis remembered. You had something someone needed, and they had something you needed, so you just made it work. A lot of people survived that way. Griffis remembered the hard work required on the farm, but he also has fond memories of Saturdays, when he could go to Starke with a quarter in his pocket and go the Ritz Theatre, where he could buy a bag of popcorn, a drink and a ticket to see the show. Griffis enlisted at age 16, lying about his age to do so. (He should have been 17 to be allowed to join the Army.) He did so with his parents approval, after spending a little time talking his mother into it. I was the oldest of 17 children (five girls and 12 boys, one of whom dies at 1 month of age), and someone had to help out, Griffis said. I was working for 50 cents a day, and the Army was paying $21 a month, plus they gave you room and board as well as all your clothes. Griffis was assigned to the 383rd Lightening Security Police, receiving training at Kewana, Miss. It was there he met his two best buddies, who worked with him for the next two years: Lewis Gresset and a man named Guererro, who was originally from Mexico. The trio arrived in France in early 1944, missing the and best friend Lewis Gresset served together all the way through training and two-andone-half years in Germany in the 383rd Lightening helping to track down former SS members.

Hersey said he looks forward to the level playing field at Trinity Baptist. It is a firstyear program, so there are no established positions. Its pretty exciting, Hersey said. We all get the same chance to see how good we are. Hersey said he looked at several schools in Pensacola and Enterprise, Ala., before receiving an offer from Trinity. I figured that wasnt a long ways from home, he said. Hersey was a catcher and in the pitching rotation at UCHS. Tomlinson said Hersey is a player who not only understands the game, but one who can play anywhere. Trinity Baptist, really, is getting nine players in one, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said at the catcher position, Hersey excelled at blocking balls that other catchers cant. Hes a grinder, Tomlinson said. Hes going to get dirty back there behind the plate. His experience behind the plate helped him on the mound. He understands how to approach batters, Tomlinson said, adding, Hes able to throw any pitch he has for a strike at any time. Hersey said hes not sure where Trinity coaches want him to play, but it doesnt matter to him. Ill play anywhere they need me to, he said. Offensively, Hersey has good control of the bat and is able to lay down bunts for singles, Tomlinson said. The coach added that Hersey doesnt have blazing speed, but is capable of stretching singles into doubles. Kite wasnt looking to play anywhere until Union assistant coach Lamar Waters informed him of Trinity Baptists interest in him.

Many Sizes!!! Dear Editor: I had a thought (a semi-annual event, I admit). -Why dont we take the $338 billion that our states and federal government are annually spending on those persons who came into this country without our permission, and spend it on something else. There are many possible places to divert these funds, but the one I had in mind was.. .USE IT TO PROVIDE HEALTH CARE FOR OUR VETERANS!!!!! Perhaps the scandal involving the denying of care to our real American heroes is not about sufficient funds. Maybe it has to do with incompetence-or a simple lack of gratitude-or a combination of the two. But if it does boil down to money, then, for me, its a no-brainer. (Of course every citizen will see the same kind of problems that the VA is experiencing as our government moves to take control of all the healthcare in this country.) Wake up America!! We should all be ashamed of ourselves. We have elected the people responsible for such things, or stayed home and failed to vote at all. In either case, it is our government, our country, our ultimate responsibility. We are failing to support our military, those who have enabled us to take advantage of the boundless opportunities that exist in this land. We are becoming a disgrace to the human race. Leonard C. Young Keystone Heights Dear Editor: As a twenty year Navy veteran and former Clay County Public High School History teacher of 18 years, I am tired and disgusted with the nonsensical, baseless attacks against Common Core State Standards, known in our State as the Florida Standards, running rampant in Clay County. The Florida Standards are straightforward, academic benchmarks in Math and English-Language Arts outlining the basic skills and knowledge our children in Floridas public schools should master by each grade level. While Floridas previous statewide academic standards were more rigorous than those in most states, they were not rigorous enough. How do we know? Graduates who enroll in Florida State College at Jacksonville immediately after graduation require remediation for skills they should have mastered in high school. Worse, more than 20 percent of Florida high school graduates cannot pass the military entrance exam. When ill-prepared students take these remedial courses, fail to join the military or complete vocational training, you and I as taxpayers foot the bill, and were talking billions of dollars every year. How? They earn significantly lower wages over the course of their lifetimes, and worse, become more likely to go on means-tested, taxpayer-funded government assistance. This translates into billions of lost wages and taxpayer dollars from our economy on an annual basis. Detractors would have you believe that these standards are the Armageddon for public education, yet they ignore these simple facts by spreading irrational rumors and fear tactics. They have no solutions or better alternatives. And even though they had ample opportunity to voice their concerns more than four years ago when our state board of education openly and constitutionally reviewed and adopted these stands over the course of several month, none was to be found. Let me be clear:   These standards are not a political manifesto. They do not usher in a national curriculum. They are not forced upon our state. And for Gods sake, they do not influence childrens sexual preferences! You can read them for yourself at http://www.fldoe.org/BII/ curriculum/SSS/. If you as a parent or citizen are concerned about political bias in our classrooms, then direct your concerns to local education officials. They are the ones, after all, who are deciding what textbooks and materials our children are using in the classroom, not Washington. I stand in solidarity with all who oppose a federal takeover of education. However, when a few dozen states get together to standardize standards, that makes perfect sense to me as a parent, retired educator and taxpayer. In America, the land of opportunity, a childs zip code should not be the deciding factor for what expectations are leveled against him at school. It seems opponents of these new standards should rather embrace complacency and the status quos mediocrity instead of raise the bar for what we expect of our students. I thank Governor Scott, the state board of education and the legislature for choosing to keep these high stands in place. I also commend any local education officials who are committed to faithfully implementing these standards in our classroom. After all, their success depends on your good work. The scare tactics must stop. Our children, their future, and our states long-term prosperity depend on us rising above the Letters editor@bctelegraph.com health care is better use madness so they can have a shot of success.

Corey Hersey and Cole Kite also signed letters of intent to play at Trintiy Baptist at a separate was unable to obtain photos. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Four recent Union County High School graduates are getting the chance to play collegiate baseball, with Chris Starling signing a letter of intent to play at Milligan College in northeast Tennessee, while Corey Hersey, Cole Kite and Colten McAlister all signed with Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville. Its a great opportunity, Starling said. Its always been my dream to play at the next level. Hersey said, It feels good to go to the next level and play, with McAlister adding, Its something Ive always wanted since I was a little boy. Kite admitted that words couldnt describe his feelings, but did say, I never really thought I had a chance to play at the next level. Union head coach Brian Tomlinson the four players always remained loose and knew how to have fun, but they took the sport seriously. They did what they needed to do to be successful and did what their coaches asked of them. Those four were instrumental in us winning state two years ago, Tomlinson said. The fact those guys get to go on and play at the next level says a lot about them and all the hard work theyve done. For Hersey, Kite and McAlister, its a chance to remain teammates. It feels good to have all your friends on the same team, Hersey said, with Kite adding, I feel pretty good. I get to play with my friends and play ball some more.

The coolers are essentially made by a rotationally molded process, where plastic materials are placed into a mold under pressure and continually rotated until the molded form takes hold.   The mold is cooled, and the material shrinks so that it can effectively be removed from the mold. Obviously, the plastic materials are tough in nature, and they also form a seamless material, which adds to the toughness and insulation. Additionally, the coolers are provided with additional insulation. Actually, the roto-molded process has been around for some time, expanding into the recreational area with the construction of kayaks. Yeti actually does such a good job of promoting their coolers that many outdoorsmen think of them as the only coolers with such qualities. However, a June/ July Outdoor Life review would suggest otherwise.   The magazine selected coolers from seven different manufacturers that used the same roto-molded process, and they assessed coolers of similar size according to 12 different criteria. One cooler was given an exceptional grade of four stars Igloo. Four manufacturers received three and a half stars: Pelican, Canyon, Yeti and Coleman.   Engel and K2 coolers received three stars. Recommended retail prices range from Canyons low of $400 to Yetis high of $500.

Putnam announced on Friday that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service is now accepting applications for the Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program. The sign-up period will run from June 6 through July 18 and is available for non-industrial private forest landowners. The southern pine beetle is one of the most destructive forest pests in the Southeast, Putnam said. By taking preventative measures now, Floridas private landowners can greatly reduce their risk of timber loss during future outbreaks. Periodic outbreaks can rapidly kill millions of pine trees and deplete tens of thousands of acres of timber resources. The most recent series of major southern pine beetle outbreaks resulted in an estimated $59 million in timber loss between 1999 and 2002. The best way to minimize timber losses from southern pine beetle and other bark beetle attacks is by reducing stand susceptibility through active forest management, said Jay Tucker, senior CFA forester with Florida Forest Service. Management practices such as thinning stands before they become overstocked, reducing understory competition, planting less-susceptible pine species on appropriate sites and harvesting diseased or stagnant stands can greatly improve the health and vigor of pine stands and decrease the likelihood of outbreaks. The Southern Pine Beetle Assistance Program is offered for private lands in 44 northern Florida counties. The program provides incentive payments for the following: Conducting a first pulpwood thinning. Conducting prescribed burning operations. Conducting mechanical underbrush treatments. Planting longleaf or slash pine. Since 2005, we have assisted many private forest landowners through this program, said Jim Karels, director of the Florida Forest Service. More than 150,000 Florida acres have been treated for southern pine beetle prevention. Qualified landowners may apply for no more than two approved preventative practices per year. Funding requests may not exceed $10,000 annually. All qualifying applications will be evaluated and ranked for approval. This program is supported through a grant from the U.S. Forest Service. To learn more about this and other landowner assistance programs and to obtain an application form, contact your local Florida Forest Service office or visit www.FreshFromFlorida. com/SouthernPineBeetle/ Prevention. In Union County, landowners can contact Tucker at 386496-2190 or Jay.Tucker@ freshfromflorida.com. For landowners in Bradford County, contact Andy Lamborn at 904-964-2461 or Andy. Lamborn@freshfromflorida. com. The Florida Forest Service manages more than 1 million acres of public forestland, while protecting 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire. hooked this 3-foot spinner shark at Flagler yards offshore from their kayak.

There was a designated soakfree zone, but for the most part, everybody who wandered onto the field behind the school were setting themselves up for a drenching. Thursday, June 12, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 9B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer For most of the year, students at Starkes Northside Christian Academy soak up knowledge.

Kite said. Tomlinson said Kite, who played center field for the Tigers, has the one thing that coaches at any level cant teachspeed. It was rare for an opposing batter to hit a ball over Kites head, he added. He was probably, by far, the fastest player on our team, Tomlinson said. Because of his value in center field, Kite didnt get a lot of chances to show off what he can do on the mound, but Tomlinson said pitching is something Kite can also do and do well. He has a strong arm, Tomlinson said. He actually couldve pitched a lot more for us. Speed is an asset for Kite when batting as well. Tomlinson said Kite is not going to hit home runs, but sometimes all he needs to do is put the ball into play as hes capable of beating out infield grounders for hits. McAlister said he received no interest from other schools, so he jumped on the offer Trinity Baptist made. Im excited to see how it goes, McAlister said. Tomlinson said he is proud of all four players, but added that it felt really good to see McAlister get a chance. McAlister wasnt always a starter and had to fight through injuries, but the right fielder made his mark. Hes worked hard and battled through adversity, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said McAlister worked hard to improve his batting, and it showed this past season. McAlister batted over .500 at the start of the season and finished with a team-leading .339 average. That says a lot about him getting ready for the next level, Tomlinson said. McAlister also achieved something not every player does, Tomlinson said. He was able to evaluate his own play and determine what it was he was doing wrong without coaches having to tell him. He got to the point where he could say, I know what I did wrong. I know how to fix it. I think that kind of stood out to me, Tomlinson said. Unlike his teammates, Starling is heading out of state for his chance to keep playing, but there is some familiarity involved with Milligan College. Starling said his grandfather went to school there, while an uncle knows Ray Smith, one of the assistant coaches. Starling said he liked the coaches and the players when he got a chance to meet them. I got to go up there on a visit, he said. It felt like family up there. Tomlinson said Starling, who plays shortstop, is really no different from Hersey, Kite and McAlister in that he doesnt accept failure. He works hard to be successful and expects the same of his teammates. He may not be vocal when he first arrives at Milligan, but it wont take long for Starling to become a leader, Tomlinson said. Milligan may not realize what a versatile player its getting in Starling, Tomlinson said, alluding to the fact that Starling can play in the outfield if need be. Hes fast enough, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to play defensively in the outfield. As for his usual position at shortstop, he has a range that makes him successful. He can cover some ground, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to make the throws from deep in the hole. Tomlinson said Starling has shown in practice that he probably should hit more home runs than he does, but with his speed he can turn any hit into the gap into a triple. Hes going to battle at the plate, Tomlinson said. He does some have some pop in his bat. All four players said they will be working hard over the summer. Kites mindset probably sums up what each player thinks. Im a decent ball player, Kite said, but I can always get better. Its sure to be quite a mixture of emotions when the players get to step onto the field for the first time as college players. Starling said it will be a little overwhelming, but Im going to take it one step at a time. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, June 12, 2014 The Keystone Youth Soccer Club Premiere U18 travel team won the Spring North Florida Youth Soccer League U18 division title and also went on to win the playoff for The Tri-League Title. and coach Branden Waters.

Following Cody Lee Williams erroneous arrest in 2013, Beseler suspended Det. Johnny Hawkins for 10 days without pay and transferred him from the special victims unit to the patrol division. The sheriff also disciplined a deputy and two supervisors in connection with the Williams errant arrest. After the Clay High School student was released, Beseler said, An innocent man was accused of a terrible crime he didnt commit. Arresting an innocent person is something we fear far more than letting a guilty person get away. I extend to Cody Lee Williams my apology for this error and we will seek to make things right for him.

FEC questions Yoho donations BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Federal Elections Commission is questioning contributions made to Congressman Ted Yohos reelection campaign. In a May 16 letter, an analyst with the FEC asked about a $2,700 donation labeled PASS THE HAT DONATIONS @ CANTERBURY EVENT 3.18.14 in the campaigns finance report for the first quarter of 2014. The line item referred to a fundraiser Yoho held at Newberrys Canterbury Showplace Equestrian Center. Federal candidates cannot accept anonymous contributions of more than $50. The FEC letter asked Yoho Campaign Treasurer Laura Jackson to amend the quarterly report, clarifying how much, if any of the $2,700 collected in Newberry was from any single individual contributing more than $50. The FEC also asked Yohos campaign about donations from three businesses: The Ridge Veterinary Medical Society Inc., B&G Produce and Wyoming Horse and Cattle Co. Donations from corporations and labor unions to federal campaigns are illegal unless the donations came from separate political funds set up by the organizations. The FEC told Jackson that if any of the three donations came from corporations, she must return Petition drive to appoint superintendent falls short BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGSBackers of an effort to replace Clay Countys elected superintendent of schools with a non-partisan, appointed leader failed to turn in enough signatures to get the issue on this years ballot. Children Over Politics, which describes itself as a non-partisan, grassroots organization, aimed to get two citizens initiatives before voters in 2014. One would change Clay Countys superintendent of schools from a partisan to a nonpartisan position. The second initiative would have changed the superintendents job from an elected one to an appointed one. In order to get one initiative on the ballot, the group needed 9,709 signatures. To get both changes on the ballot, it needed 19,418. By the June 6 deadline, the group turned in 2,040 signatures. The day before the deadline, Children Over Politics said it was suspending the petition drive. Virginia Collins, chairwoman of the group, wrote in a press release that a regrettable event took place that is forcing us to suspend any further petition submissions at this time. Collins added in the release that we are conscious of our obligation to protect petition signers and supporters from Development authority board member defends ballpark deal BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor MIDDLEBURG-A board member of the Clay County Development Authority said his groups proposal with Big League Dreams to build a $19 million recreational sports complex near Branan Field Road was a good deal for Clay County, until estimates for the projects costs exceeded the countys budget. Greg Clary spearheaded the development boards effort to land the complex and was a vocal supporter of the proposal, even though he joined his fellow board members in killing the deal during a May 22 development board vote. Political opposition to the complex, led by County Commissioner Ronnie Robinson, had been growing. Robinson said he opposed the complex because it would have been financed by a $19 million bond issue backed by the county. Clary said the political climate did not influence the development boards vote. It had nothing to do with the political rhetoric, he said. I want to repeat that again. Clary said the board approached the proposal in a businesslike manner and backed out of the deal solely because cost forecasts exceeded the countys budget for the project. Clay taxable property values increase for second year GREEN COVE SPRINGSProperty Appraiser Roger A. Suggs said the taxable value for Clay County real estate increased to approximately $8.4 billion as of Jan. 1, 2014. The increase marks the second consecutive year values have risen in the county. Suggs said the majority of residential home values increased and the majority of commercial property values increased slightly. The valuation is based on market value adjusted for exemptions and statutory caps to arrive at taxable value. One statutory cap is a 1.5-percent annual limitation on the amount the taxable value of a homestead can increase. Commercial properties are also limited to a 10-percent increase each year. Those caps are based on constitutional amendments passed by voters in 1992 and 2008. Suggs said that although new construction in Clay County is still significantly lower than the peak of $650 million in 2006, new construction during 2013 increased by 45 percent over the previous year, from $92.9 million to $135.2 million. Percentage increases in taxable value, and the value of new construction, for the taxing authorities in Clay County include: BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGS For the second time in 10 months, the Clay County Sheriffs Office has arrested the wrong person. On Aug. 30, 2013, deputies arrested Clay High School student Cody Lee Williams for sexual assault. The 17-year-old spent 35 days in jail before the sheriffs office realized the man they were looking for was Cody Raymond Williams, also a Clay High School student. On May 27, 2014 deputies arrested 28-year-old Ashley Nicole Chiasson for defrauding a financial institution, after identifying her as the woman who tried to cash a fraudulent check inside an Orange Park Wells Fargo Bank branch on March 25. According to a sheriffs office report, the suspect provided a bank official with a Louisiana drivers license as identification. The fraudulent check was made out to Ashley O. Chiasson. In addition, when a deputy ran a check on the suspects name, two people with the name Ashley Chiasson came back, neither with a Louisiana license. The responding deputy also wrote that the survalience video from the bank was not available at this time. Sheriffs office spokesperson Mary Justino said that on June 6, investigators discovered that the actual perpetrator of the fraud attempt was another individual who shares the first and last name of the woman they arrested. Justino said the two women also share the same physical characteristics. Justino said that after the discovery, the State Attorneys Office dropped all charges against Chiasson and correctional officers released her from jail. Sheriff Rick Beseler issued a statement on June 10, about the mistaken identity of Chiasson. In these cases it appears that short-cuts were taken by the detectives during the suspect identification process and a thorough investigation into the identity of the suspect was not completed before the warrants were obtained, he said. The result was the wrong person was accused of crimes she didnt commit. I extend to Ashley Nicole Chiasson my sincere apology for this error. We will seek to make things right for her. An internal investigation began immediately and a full review of how proper investigative procedures were not followed is underway. Those responsible will be held accountable. New measures, safeguards and revised policies will be adopted Putnam deputies looking for Florahome teen FLORAHOME Putnam County deputies are looking for a teenager they say ran away from home Monday.

See OFFICE, 5A Summer in the City kicks off for local youth BY KAREN LAKE Special to the Monitor KEYSTONE HEIGHTSLocal leaders and volunteers have kicked off the first areawide summer program called Summer in the City. The programs goal is to engage local teenswho have historically been house bound during the summer monthsand give them an outlet to enjoy activities with members of the community in a positive setting. Initially, the idea was sparked by social workers and administrators at Keystone Heights Junior and Senior High School who saw a need for ongoing interaction. As a result, many members have come forward and teens now have four days of fun-filled events available to them. On Mondays, Trinity Baptist Church volunteers offer activities on the churchs campus. On Tuesdays, members of First Baptist and Freedom Baptist host students at Keystone Beach. Lake Swan Camp welcomes the students on Wednesdays and students return to the beach on Thursday for activities managed by workers from the Keystone Heights Assembly of God and the Keystone Jaycees.

OPEN THURSDAY thru SATURDAY (352) 222-0286 350 Lawrence Blvd, Keystone Heights Op e n H o u se BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor GREEN COVE SPRINGSClay County emergency management officials released the countys new hurricane evacuation map on May 30. The new map replaces the old, single evacuation zone with three zones: A, B and C. During an approaching storm, Zone A would be evacuated first, then B and finally C. In previous maps, officials only took into account wind speed and storm surge along major water bodies such as the St. Johns River, Black Creek and Doctors Lake. This years edition also takes into account freshwater storm surge which expanded Zone C to include most of Fleming Island. It also added an area bordered by C.R. 220 (Doctors Inlet Road), U.S. 17, C.R. 209 (Russell Road) and Henley Road. Zone C also extends along the north fork of Black Creek into Jennings State Forest and along the south fork into the Thunder Road area, west of Penny Farms. Most of the over 10,000 homes added to the evacuation zones are on Fleming Island and along C.R. 220. Also new to the 2014 hurricane season will be the National Hurricane Center issuing storm surge maps which will forecast the degree of rising water in the path of an approaching storm. NHC officials said that storm surge is often the greatest threat to property and lives during tropical cyclones, but the general public does not understand nor takes into account the threat. The maps will classify storm surge into one of four groups: up to three feet above ground, greater than three feet above ground, greater than six feet above ground and greater than nine feet above ground. Clay County officials also identified storm shelters for the 2014 season. Standard shelters include Argyle Elementary School, RideOut Elementary, Tynes Elementary, Green Cove Springs Junior High, Clay Hill Elementary, Shadowlawn Elementary, Coppergate Elementary, Lake Asbury Junior High, McRae Elementary, Oakleaf Village Elementary, Oakleaf Junior High, Oakleaf Senior High and Plantation Oaks Elementary. Pet-friendly shelters include Orange Park, Clay and Keystone Heights high schools. the money within 30 days. When asked about the letter during a Keystone Heights campaign event, Yoho said the money marked as pass-thehat donations were actually $30-a-piece gate receipts for the event that a campaign worker misidentified in the FEC quarterly report. Yoho also said the campaign immediately returned the three contributions from the businesses after discovering they were from corporations. Yoho added that the type of inquiry letter his campaign received from the FEC on May 16 was common among federal campaigns and that virtually all candidates receive one during the course of an election cycle. Continued from 1A intimidation and retaliatory actions, and we do not want to jeopardize anyones job. When asked about the petition drives suspension during a telephone interview, Collins confirmed that the regrettable event she referred to in the press release was a May 2 incident at the Clay County Supervisor of Elections Office in which Tim Nguyen, a supporter of current schools superintendent Charlie Van Zant, made a public records request to inspect the petitions and subsequently requested a copy of one of the names on a petition. When asked why she waited a month after the incident to suspend the drive, Collins replied that her group used the PETITION Continued from 1A time to evaluate its options and to weigh the risk that school district employees might bear if they signed a petition. When asked how many signatures the group had collected but had not yet turned in, Collins replied thousands and thousands. However she could not provide an exact count. Collins said that even before the May 2 incident, school district employees were hesitant to support the measure, fearing retaliation from school district administrators. District spokesman Gavin Rollins declined to speak on the record about the petition drive, other than to say that district officials have stayed away from the issue. He also denied that any district employees faced retaliation for signing the petitions. Collins said her organization is now seeking legal counsel. However, Supervisor of Elections Chris Chambless said that the ballot initiatives are over. The elections official said when he heard about the group halting its petition drive, he called Collins to remind her that June 6 was the deadline for submitting signatures. I respect her decision, said Chambless during a June 6 interview, but after today, there are no mulligans. They had a budget of $19 million, he said of county officials. The two estimates came to-Im going to round offto about $25 million-plus to do the facility at the level the vendor felt like would be a successful facility. Clary also said that with hindsight, he and other supporters of the project acted responsibly in pushing for the sports complex. We made a tremendous effort to try to bring 2,000 to 3,000 jobs to this area, he said. It is an opportunity missed for the county. Unfortunately, that is one opportunity that we wont be able to do because it was a little more expensive than the county had the money for.

6A Lake Region Monitor Thursday, June 12, 2014 GAINESVILLE On Friday, May 30, UF Health celebrates the arrival of the newest member of the ShandsCair fleet an EC-155 the largest, fastest and most advanced civilian aeromedicine helicopter in the Southeast. The new helicopter, specially modified for aeromedicine, has been assigned the designation of ShandsCair 1 and replaces the smaller EC135 in use at ShandsCairs Gainesville base during the past year. This addition is much more than just a new helicopter for UF Health, said Ed Jimenez, UF Health senior vice president and chief operating officer. It is a lifeline for residents of north central Florida and the entire state who require advanced critical care during their transport. Flying at speeds reaching 180 mph, the new orange and blue helicopter is equipped to carry as many as two patients and a three-member flight team in addition to the pilot up to 360 nautical miles, enabling specialized medical teams to transport patients to Gainesville from as far away as the Florida Keys, Atlanta or Pensacola without stopping to refuel. By comparison, the two ShandsCair EC-135s at the Perry and Summerfield bases can transport one patient plus two crew members and travel at speeds of approximately 135 mph within a smaller geographical area. This helicopter expands our capability to transport even the most complicated cases including patients with ventricular assist devices or balloon pumps, high-risk obstetric patients and newborns, and bariatric patients faster and farther than ever before, said Staccie Allen, R.N., ShandsCair flight program director. The level of care we provide is significantly enhanced by the increased speed and distance we now can travel. When the time came to plan the replacement of its Gainesville-based aircraft, it became clear that a $12 million investment in a new helicopter to expand the capacity to serve patients throughout Florida and improve hospital transport times was the appropriate decision. Med-Trans Corporation, a leading air-medical operator based out of Lewisville, Texas, operates ShandsCairs new EC155 as well as the two EC-135s in the fleet. ShandsCair is recognized as one of the foremost air medical flight programs in the industry, said Rob Hamilton, chief operating officer of MedTrans. We very much value our partnership with UF Health and we are pleased to play a role in their ongoing dedication and service to the many critical patients in need of air medical transport throughout the ShandsCair service region. Approximately 40 percent of ShandsCairs 4,700 annual transports are dispatched in response to prehospital emergencies. The remaining percentage involve interfacility transports, where specialized medical crews bring patients from other hospitals to UF Health Shands Hospital, often transferring patients who are too ill to be transported by other aeromedicine or EMS agencies. With this helicopter, we truly are bringing UF Health to the patient, Jimenez said. From the moment ShandsCair arrives, patients begin receiving the same state-of-the-art advanced care for which UF Health is known. This continuity of care provides patients the best care possible anywhere in the state. Every ShandsCair transport, whether by helicopter, ambulance or fixed-wing airplane, is staffed by a unique combination of medical personnel selected to meet the specific needs of the patient being transported. Depending on the needs of the patient, we select paramedics, physicians, perfusionists, respiratory therapists, nurses or specialists from numerous disciplines so we can provide the right care for every patient, every transport, Allen said.

The report goes on to say that channelization would significantly reduce seepage in this segment of the Creek. It is also stated that some water may currently be lost to adjacent ground water basins, and that reducing this loss could facilitate the conveyance of some new water into the Alligator Creek system. Although the Survey recommends other creek management activities such as clearing vegetation and removing fences, the conclusion states only a slight benefit in the stage of Lake Brooklyn. Addressing the 2 to 6.5 mgd seepage loss described above may provide more meaningful results. It seems reasonable to evaluate this measure that may provide significant benefit if acceptable to property owners and without harm elsewhere. This Alligator Creek survey also provided a fifty year history of the Keystone lakes with a listing of notable events. An important item not mentioned would be the 50 year change in lake and underlying Floridan Aquifer levels. SJRWMD Hydrologic Reports clearly show a strong downtrend in the lakes and ground water (well C-0120). The Floridan beneath the lakes has consistently declined an average 2-3/4 per year for over 50 years (12 Ft). Computer models indicate that regional ground water withdrawals significantly contribute to this depletion. With more advanced USGS specified transient modeling, these adverse impacts may be found to be even greater than currently estimated. It should be emphasized that these lakes provide natural regional aquifer recharge. Prudent planning would indicate bringing water to the lakes to help address the large water supply shortfall in the coming decades (256 mgd by 2035) as shown in the SJRWMD District Water Supply Plan 2013. Finally, the Keystone Community will not unfairly benefit from projects bringing water to the lakes. Residents can never recover the lost years (decades) of healthy lake assets, but rather these water resources that have been depleted largely at the benefit of others can be rightfully restored.

Downtown shop owners will be invited to place signs on their buildings once the research is complete. The Richard and Pace building housed one of Starkes earliest department stores. It and another building tucked away behind it were significant because they stored much of the merchandise delivered to and from Starke on the railroad during Starkes formative years.

Gordon Smith took the hot seat in the dunking booth in the name of raising funds as well. The renovation of the dealership began in February and was completed in late May with a hefty multi-million-dollar price tag. Director of Operations/ Human Resource Manager Frank Bisacky said the process involved the complete refurbishment of both the exterior and the interior of the existing structure and was geared to both improving service to the customers and to making their experience at Murray Ford a pleasant one. Everywhere one looks, there are details designed to enhance the customers experience, from granite counter tops in the restrooms to new, highdefinition televisions and vending machines (offering a wider range of choices) in the customer waiting area. Also new is the business center, which offers high speed Internet for customers use while they wait. Wi-Fi is available over the entire lot outside to allow customers to look at the dealerships inventory online while they walk around. The service department has also been improved and augmented, being the main factor in the cost of the renovation. New lifts have been installed that can handle recreational vehicles up to 53 feet in length. New electronic equipment has been added, which allows the service department to work on any make and model. The new Murray Quick Lane Tire Center is designed to serve everyone and carries a full line of tire types and sizes for passenger vehicles. We spent a lot of money to give our customers better, quicker and more complete service, Bisacky said. We have improved the quality and scope of our service department and the breadth and depth of our entire operation. We are part of this community. This is a family owned business, not a big corporation. Our first concern when making any decision is, What is the right thing to do? That is what we do. A customer is not just a salethey are members of our community, and we want to do the best job we can in meeting their needs. BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor The Northeast Florida Regional Chamber of Commerces Tourism Development Council wants to attract more attention to Starke and Bradford County history. What they really hope to accomplish is to highlight Starke and Bradford County history, using resources at hand. Those resources include the Eugene Matthews Bradford County Historical Museum and now plaques highlighting the Call Street historic district. The Call Street district is included in the National Registry of historic places and covers a large swath of downtown Starke. Over the last few months, research has been completed, and metal plaques have been added to four buildings with roles in Starke history and Call Streets cityscape. More plaques are planned. The hope is to have a selfguided walking tour of Starke and Call Street history up and down the blocks. The first building already identified is the Richard and Pace Building, which sits on the south side of Call Street, right at the railroad tracks. Its companion building, the first Bradford Bank (now housing Tony and Als Deli), sits right next door and also has a new sign. Two additional buildings got signs last week: the chamber building, which is also the second Bradford Bank building, and the Magnolia Hotel. All of those buildings except the chamber building were constructed in the late 1800s. The chamber building was constructed during the early years of the 20 th century. The Richard and Pace building replaced a former wooden frame that may have been victim to a fire. The Bradford Bank was the New signs highlight Call Street history side of her building.

I kick myself every now and then for ever stopping working, Griffis said. I miss the work and the satisfaction that comes from building something. the field of business in which he would excel. He went to work for Jimmy Moore at Moores Sun Spot in Starke, located where Walgreens is now. Moore built fiberglass boats and sold Mercury outboards. Griffis quickly found a niche in the business. People were making boats and selling boats, but nobody was repairing fiberglass boats so I learned how to do it, Griffis said. Griffis worked for Moore a long time for minimum wage until one day he asked for a 15cent raise. When Moore refused, Griffis gave his two weeks notice. Griffis had taken over the $18,000 mortgage on a piece of property owned by his father at the behest of Bud Mizell of Southern Discount (now CT City Financial). He rebuilt the house on the property and built a workshop to start his own business making fiberglass boats. Griffis and Sons opened for business, producing Stumpknocker Boats in several styles. Named after a small panfish in the bream family known for being stubborn and mean, the boats were an immediate success. The boats were really nothing fancy, Griffis said. They were just Cracker fishing boats, but people seemed to like them. Son Woodrow Jr. took over the main running of the business, but Griffis did not completely retire until about three years ago. The Stumpknocker name and assets were sold in 2004 to All Craft Marine. In 2009, Woodrow Jr. went back into the business as Griffis Fiberglass and has been successful working with St. Augustine Marine. Woodrow Jr. said he owes everything to his father. He taught me everything I know about fiberglass and building boats, he said. Griffis now spends his days feeding a yard full of squirrels and four goats and keeping his numerous bird feeders well stocked. He also enjoys watching Westerns on television and listening to vintage country music, especially the music of Hank Williams Sr. Despite all this, he is occasionally restless in his retirement. of it. We also got to see a lot of castles and old, historical places and things. When he arrived home from Germany, Griffis wasted no time in going to work. Hampered by his lack of education (he was only able to complete the second grade due to family responsibilities), he bought a truck and went to work in the scrap metal business. Some time later, he went to work as a mechanic for Shorty Livey at his garage in Starke at the corner of Pratt Street and U.S. 301, where he said he worked on a lot of vehicles from the Hercules Powder Company. Griffis married Olga Pauline Michaelchuck in 1947. The marriage lasted 57.5 years and produced five children: Viola, Victor, Woodrow Jr., Lucille and Eleanor. Griffis now presides over a large family, which includes 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Family is the most important thing to me, Griffis said. I value greatly any time I can spend with them. In 1961, Griffis started out in fighting, but just in time to join the occupying force. They moved on into Germany after two weeks in France. The war in Europe was over, but it was still smoking when we arrived, Griffis said. They were still fighting in the Pacific, but that really didnt affect us. Spending two and a half years in Germany, Griffis worked picking up and delivering prisoners and helping to chase down SS members still at large. Most of the German people were not Nazis, or if they had joined them, it was in name only, Griffis said. Many of them were forced to join the party to keep their families safe. As for the SS, most of the big guys had gotten out of the country, but there were still quite a few of the lowerranking men to the rounded up. Griffis saw service all over Germany in places like Mannheim, Darmstadt and Frankfort. He said the German people were a little unfriendly at first, but over the time he was there they seemed to become easier to get along with. While Griffis and his friends were kept busy, they never were subjected to the horrors of the concentration camps. They also found time to do a little sightseeing on their time off. Griffis remembered seeing the worlds largest wine keg in Heidelberg. The thing was so huge it had never been totally filled up, Griffis said. They said that a king one time filled it up about half way. It was so big that there was a dance floor built on top Thursday, June 12, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 3B Noegels Auto Sales888-964-64611018 N.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Monitor and Times While most people think of World War II-era military service in terms of battles, marches and invasions, there were many who served in support positions both during and after the conflict. These jobs were just as necessary and sometimes carried more responsibility than the combat positions. As one longtime Bradford County resident put it, Someone had to clean up the mess and see that problems didnt start up again. Woodrow Griffis Sr. was born on Jan. 26, 1929, on his parents farm, located about 1 mile from where Camp Blandings A gate is now. His father, Leonard, and grandfather, Henry, had adjacent 40-acre homesteads. Both men farmed to feed their families and were accomplished horse traders, which had less to do with horses as it did with bartering for needed items. It was during the Depression, so no one had any money, Griffis remembered. You had something someone needed, and they had something you needed, so you just made it work. A lot of people survived that way. Griffis remembered the hard work required on the farm, but he also has fond memories of Saturdays, when he could go to Starke with a quarter in his pocket and go the Ritz Theatre, where he could buy a bag of popcorn, a drink and a ticket to see the show. Griffis enlisted at age 16, lying about his age to do so. (He should have been 17 to be allowed to join the Army.) He did so with his parents approval, after spending a little time talking his mother into it. I was the oldest of 17 children (five girls and 12 boys, one of whom dies at 1 month of age), and someone had to help out, Griffis said. I was working for 50 cents a day, and the Army was paying $21 a month, plus they gave you room and board as well as all your clothes. Griffis was assigned to the 383 rd Lightening Security Police, receiving training at Kewana, Miss. It was there he met his two best buddies, who worked with him for the next two years: Lewis Gresset and a man named Guererro, who was originally from Mexico. The trio arrived in France in early 1944, missing the and best friend Lewis Gresset served together all the way through training and two-andone-half years in Germany in the 383rd Lightening helping to track down former SS members.

Hersey said he looks forward to the level playing field at Trinity Baptist. It is a firstyear program, so there are no established positions. Its pretty exciting, Hersey said. We all get the same chance to see how good we are. Hersey said he looked at several schools in Pensacola and Enterprise, Ala., before receiving an offer from Trinity. I figured that wasnt a long ways from home, he said. Hersey was a catcher and in the pitching rotation at UCHS. Tomlinson said Hersey is a player who not only understands the game, but one who can play anywhere. Trinity Baptist, really, is getting nine players in one, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said at the catcher position, Hersey excelled at blocking balls that other catchers cant. Hes a grinder, Tomlinson said. Hes going to get dirty back there behind the plate. His experience behind the plate helped him on the mound. He understands how to approach batters, Tomlinson said, adding, Hes able to throw any pitch he has for a strike at any time. Hersey said hes not sure where Trinity coaches want him to play, but it doesnt matter to him. Ill play anywhere they need me to, he said. Offensively, Hersey has good control of the bat and is able to lay down bunts for singles, Tomlinson said. The coach added that Hersey doesnt have blazing speed, but is capable of stretching singles into doubles. Kite wasnt looking to play anywhere until Union assistant coach Lamar Waters informed him of Trinity Baptists interest in him.

Many Sizes!!! Dear Editor: I had a thought (a semi-annual event, I admit). -Why dont we take the $338 billion that our states and federal government are annually spending on those persons who came into this country without our permission, and spend it on something else. There are many possible places to divert these funds, but the one I had in mind was.. .USE IT TO PROVIDE HEALTH CARE FOR OUR VETERANS!!!!! Perhaps the scandal involving the denying of care to our real American heroes is not about sufficient funds. Maybe it has to do with incompetence-or a simple lack of gratitude-or a combination of the two. But if it does boil down to money, then, for me, its a no-brainer. (Of course every citizen will see the same kind of problems that the VA is experiencing as our government moves to take control of all the healthcare in this country.) Wake up America!! We should all be ashamed of ourselves. We have elected the people responsible for such things, or stayed home and failed to vote at all. In either case, it is our government, our country, our ultimate responsibility. We are failing to support our military, those who have enabled us to take advantage of the boundless opportunities that exist in this land. We are becoming a disgrace to the human race. Leonard C. Young Keystone Heights Dear Editor: As a twenty year Navy veteran and former Clay County Public High School History teacher of 18 years, I am tired and disgusted with the nonsensical, baseless attacks against Common Core State Standards, known in our State as the Florida Standards, running rampant in Clay County. The Florida Standards are straightforward, academic benchmarks in Math and English-Language Arts outlining the basic skills and knowledge our children in Floridas public schools should master by each grade level. While Floridas previous statewide academic standards were more rigorous than those in most states, they were not rigorous enough. How do we know? Graduates who enroll in Florida State College at Jacksonville immediately after graduation require remediation for skills they should have mastered in high school. Worse, more than 20 percent of Florida high school graduates cannot pass the military entrance exam. When ill-prepared students take these remedial courses, fail to join the military or complete vocational training, you and I as taxpayers foot the bill, and were talking billions of dollars every year. How? They earn significantly lower wages over the course of their lifetimes, and worse, become more likely to go on means-tested, taxpayer-funded government assistance. This translates into billions of lost wages and taxpayer dollars from our economy on an annual basis. Detractors would have you believe that these standards are the Armageddon for public education, yet they ignore these simple facts by spreading irrational rumors and fear tactics. They have no solutions or better alternatives. And even though they had ample opportunity to voice their concerns more than four years ago when our state board of education openly and constitutionally reviewed and adopted these stands over the course of several month, none was to be found. Let me be clear: These standards are not a political manifesto. They do not usher in a national curriculum. They are not forced upon our state. And for Gods sake, they do not influence childrens sexual preferences! You can read them for yourself at http://www.fldoe.org/BII/ curriculum/SSS/. If you as a parent or citizen are concerned about political bias in our classrooms, then direct your concerns to local education officials. They are the ones, after all, who are deciding what textbooks and materials our children are using in the classroom, not Washington. I stand in solidarity with all who oppose a federal takeover of education. However, when a few dozen states get together to standardize standards, that makes perfect sense to me as a parent, retired educator and taxpayer. In America, the land of opportunity, a childs zip code should not be the deciding factor for what expectations are leveled against him at school. It seems opponents of these new standards should rather embrace complacency and the status quos mediocrity instead of raise the bar for what we expect of our students. I thank Governor Scott, the state board of education and the legislature for choosing to keep these high stands in place. I also commend any local education officials who are committed to faithfully implementing these standards in our classroom. After all, their success depends on your good work. The scare tactics must stop. Our children, their future, and our states long-term prosperity depend on us rising above the Letters editor@bctelegraph.com health care is better use madness so they can have a shot of success.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Four recent Union County High School graduates are getting the chance to play collegiate baseball, with Chris Starling signing a letter of intent to play at Milligan College in northeast Tennessee, while Corey Hersey, Cole Kite and Colten McAlister all signed with Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville. Its a great opportunity, Starling said. Its always been my dream to play at the next level. Hersey said, It feels good to go to the next level and play, with McAlister adding, Its something Ive always wanted since I was a little boy. Kite admitted that words couldnt describe his feelings, but did say, I never really thought I had a chance to play at the next level. Union head coach Brian Tomlinson the four players always remained loose and knew how to have fun, but they took the sport seriously. They did what they needed to do to be successful and did what their coaches asked of them. Those four were instrumental in us winning state two years ago, Tomlinson said. The fact those guys get to go on and play at the next level says a lot about them and all the hard work theyve done. For Hersey, Kite and McAlister, its a chance to remain teammates. It feels good to have all your friends on the same team, Hersey said, with Kite adding, I feel pretty good. I get to play with my friends and play ball some more.

The coolers are essentially made by a rotationally molded process, where plastic materials are placed into a mold under pressure and continually rotated until the molded form takes hold. The mold is cooled, and the material shrinks so that it can effectively be removed from the mold. Obviously, the plastic materials are tough in nature, and they also form a seamless material, which adds to the toughness and insulation. Additionally, the coolers are provided with additional insulation. Actually, the roto-molded process has been around for some time, expanding into the recreational area with the construction of kayaks. Yeti actually does such a good job of promoting their coolers that many outdoorsmen think of them as the only coolers with such qualities. However, a June/ July Outdoor Life review would suggest otherwise. The magazine selected coolers from seven different manufacturers that used the same roto-molded process, and they assessed coolers of similar size according to 12 different criteria. One cooler was given an exceptional grade of four stars Igloo. Four manufacturers received three and a half stars: Pelican, Canyon, Yeti and Coleman. Engel and K2 coolers received three stars. Recommended retail prices range from Canyons low of $400 to Yetis high of $500.

Putnam announced on Friday that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service is now accepting applications for the Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program. The sign-up period will run from June 6 through July 18 and is available for non-industrial private forest landowners. The southern pine beetle is one of the most destructive forest pests in the Southeast, Putnam said. By taking preventative measures now, Floridas private landowners can greatly reduce their risk of timber loss during future outbreaks. Periodic outbreaks can rapidly kill millions of pine trees and deplete tens of thousands of acres of timber resources. The most recent series of major southern pine beetle outbreaks resulted in an estimated $59 million in timber loss between 1999 and 2002. The best way to minimize timber losses from southern pine beetle and other bark beetle attacks is by reducing stand susceptibility through active forest management, said Jay Tucker, senior CFA forester with Florida Forest Service. Management practices such as thinning stands before they become overstocked, reducing understory competition, planting less-susceptible pine species on appropriate sites and harvesting diseased or stagnant stands can greatly improve the health and vigor of pine stands and decrease the likelihood of outbreaks. The Southern Pine Beetle Assistance Program is offered for private lands in 44 northern Florida counties. The program provides incentive payments for the following: Conducting a first pulpwood thinning. Conducting prescribed burning operations. Conducting mechanical underbrush treatments. Planting longleaf or slash pine. Since 2005, we have assisted many private forest landowners through this program, said Jim Karels, director of the Florida Forest Service. More than 150,000 Florida acres have been treated for southern pine beetle prevention. Qualified landowners may apply for no more than two approved preventative practices per year. Funding requests may not exceed $10,000 annually. All qualifying applications will be evaluated and ranked for approval. This program is supported through a grant from the U.S. Forest Service. To learn more about this and other landowner assistance programs and to obtain an application form, contact your local Florida Forest Service office or visit www.FreshFromFlorida. com/SouthernPineBeetle/ Prevention.

including inflatable slides that led into pools of water, water guns, sprinklers and water-filled sponges. There was a designated soakfree zone, but for the most part, everybody who wandered onto the field behind the school were setting themselves up for a drenching. Thursday, June 12, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 9B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer For most of the year, students at Starkes Northside Christian Academy soak up knowledge. On June 5, they were just soaked. To celebrate the end of the year, the school hosted a fun day, which included lots of wet fun, ABOVE LEFT: Kole Wilkinson slides into the water. ABOVE: Aniston Pilcher closes her eyes while plunging into the water. LEFT: Teacher Linda Fowler was a popular gets a little payback here against student Mackenzie Bradley. Kayla Hipps squeezes a sponge with every bit of effort she has in order to soak unsuspecting teacher Jamie Garrison. ABOVE: Whos next? Karmen Johnson looks around for victims as she sponges. RIGHT: Hunter Starling squirts one of his classmates. Heads up! Wyatt Konkel is about to get hit with teacher April Pilchers water gun. It wasnt all water-related fun.

Kite said. Tomlinson said Kite, who played center field for the Tigers, has the one thing that coaches at any level cant teachspeed. It was rare for an opposing batter to hit a ball over Kites head, he added. He was probably, by far, the fastest player on our team, Tomlinson said. Because of his value in center field, Kite didnt get a lot of chances to show off what he can do on the mound, but Tomlinson said pitching is something Kite can also do and do well. He has a strong arm, Tomlinson said. He actually couldve pitched a lot more for us. Speed is an asset for Kite when batting as well. Tomlinson said Kite is not going to hit home runs, but sometimes all he needs to do is put the ball into play as hes capable of beating out infield grounders for hits. McAlister said he received no interest from other schools, so he jumped on the offer Trinity Baptist made. Im excited to see how it goes, McAlister said. Tomlinson said he is proud of all four players, but added that it felt really good to see McAlister get a chance. McAlister wasnt always a starter and had to fight through injuries, but the right fielder made his mark. Hes worked hard and battled through adversity, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said McAlister worked hard to improve his batting, and it showed this past season. McAlister batted over .500 at the start of the season and finished with a team-leading .339 average. That says a lot about him getting ready for the next level, Tomlinson said. McAlister also achieved something not every player does, Tomlinson said. He was able to evaluate his own play and determine what it was he was doing wrong without coaches having to tell him. He got to the point where he could say, I know what I did wrong. I know how to fix it. I think that kind of stood out to me, Tomlinson said. Unlike his teammates, Starling is heading out of state for his chance to keep playing, but there is some familiarity involved with Milligan College. Starling said his grandfather went to school there, while an uncle knows Ray Smith, one of the assistant coaches. Starling said he liked the coaches and the players when he got a chance to meet them. I got to go up there on a visit, he said. It felt like family up there. Tomlinson said Starling, who plays shortstop, is really no different from Hersey, Kite and McAlister in that he doesnt accept failure. He works hard to be successful and expects the same of his teammates. He may not be vocal when he first arrives at Milligan, but it wont take long for Starling to become a leader, Tomlinson said. Milligan may not realize what a versatile player its getting in Starling, Tomlinson said, alluding to the fact that Starling can play in the outfield if need be. Hes fast enough, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to play defensively in the outfield. As for his usual position at shortstop, he has a range that makes him successful. He can cover some ground, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to make the throws from deep in the hole. Tomlinson said Starling has shown in practice that he probably should hit more home runs than he does, but with his speed he can turn any hit into the gap into a triple. Hes going to battle at the plate, Tomlinson said. He does some have some pop in his bat. All four players said they will be working hard over the summer. Kites mindset probably sums up what each player thinks. Im a decent ball player, Kite said, but I can always get better. Its sure to be quite a mixture of emotions when the players get to step onto the field for the first time as college players. Starling said it will be a little overwhelming, but Im going to take it one step at a time. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, June 12, 2014 The Keystone Youth Soccer Club Premiere U18 travel team won the Spring North Florida Youth Soccer League U18 division title and also went on to win the playoff for The Tri-League Title. and coach Branden Waters.
