Deirdre Murphy, a real estate agent for Watson Realtys Gainesville office said that many sellers in northeast Floridas two major cities have over the last three years been receiving multiple offers for real estate they have listed for sale. Murphy said that trend has now reached the regions rural areas. Murphy is a graduate of the Watson Success School and the winner of Watson Realtys Presidents Award in 2008. She is a past member of the Keystone Heights Heritage Commission and Womens Club, past chair of the Keystone Heights Community Redevelopment Advisory Board, and a current member of the Keystone-Lake Region Business Association. She said that the National Association of Realtors expects home prices to rise by 5.5 percent in 2018 and that housing starts will increase by almost 9.5 percent over 2017. We have to have new construction in the housing market because the inventory is so low, she said of the current market. If we dont have those builders out there building new homes, and again, this is nationally, we wont have enough homes for all of the buyers that are out there looking for homes.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Although Keystone Heights High Schools Junior High Academic Team lost its final match of the year: a 142-65 loss against Green Cove Springs Junior High, sponsor Nicole Honour said the team had a successful season. Members of academic teams compete by hitting a buzzer and answering toss up questions, similar to the television show Jeopardy. When a participant correctly answers a toss up question, then her team can earn additional points by answering a bonus question, in which the team is allowed to answer as a group. Honour said the highlight of Keystones season was a 154-75 win against Wilkinson Junior High. She added that her crew showed steady improvement throughout the year. We started with kids who were afraid to buzz in and answer questions, she said of the group. Every team member contributed, and we are young and still developing. Team member Madison Bettey said she joined the team after a teacher recommended she try out. I love it, Bettey said of the competition, adding that she gets a rush beating opponents to the buzzer and delivering a correct answer. Bettey and other team members said that academic pursuits are not esteemed among their fellow students as much as participation in sports. Some kids think its lame, said Paige Wilkinson. However, all the team members said they enjoyed the experience and are looking for additional opportuni ties at the school to compete academically. City Council makes 3rd attempt mayorBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The city council voted, for the third time, to accept applications for mayor, during its Nov. 20 meeting. Mayor Tony Brown resigned from the post in August, citing increasing travel demands from his business. According to the Keystone Heights Charter, the council must appoint a mayor to serve until the next general election in the spring of 2018. The winner of the election will then serve until the next mayoral election in 2020. Applicants had until Aug. 25 to apply for the job. Two city residents applied during August: retired New York Postmaster Catherine Southard and Santa Fe College staff member Karen Lake. However, the council rejected both applicants, with council members Dan Lewandowski and Steve Brown claiming more citizens wanted to apply, but were prevented from doing so by the short application period. So, the council opened a second application period from Oct. 23 through Nov. 3. However, no one applied during the second application period. During the councils Nov. 20 meeting, Interim Mayor Steve Hart said that Planning and Zoning Chairman Bill Dixon applied for the mayors post after the second application period closed. He recommended that the council accept Dixons application and continue to accept other applications through Dec. 1. The council would then consider the applications during its Dec. 4 meeting. In other words, hart said, its wide open again. The council voted 4-0 to accept Harts recommendation. Members of Historic Melrose conducted an archaeological dig on the grounds of propertys past.

During the districts November governing board meeting, district staff said that the noreaster that brought heavy rains to coastal St. Johns, Indian River and Brevard counties pushed the districts 12-month rainfall total to 4.4 inches above normal. In north Florida, Flagler County received 9.06 inches of rain in October, which is 4.82 inches above average. St. Johns County received 8.15 inches, which is 3.75 above average. Rainfall was below average in Nassau, Baker and Alachua counties. In central Florida, Seminole, Lake and Orange counties all experienced below-average rainfall for the month. Seminole received 3.45 inches (0.51 inches below average), Lake received 2.58 inches (0.53 inches below average), and Orange received 3.33 inches of rain (0.61 inches below average). Rainfall in Brevard County was the highest in the district at 9.92 inches and nearly 5 inches above average for the month. In March, the district issued a water shortage warning for Nassau, Flagler, Baker, Clay, Putnam, Marion and Lake counties, citing below average rainfall totals for the previous 12 months. In May, the district extended the warning to its entire 18-county jurisdiction, marking the first time in over a decade the district took such action. The district rescinded the order in September.

The minimum water level in a lake is the level at which further decreases would be significantly harmful to water resources or ecology of the area. If water levels drop below an MFL, water management districts are required to undertake recovery plans to bring levels up to the minimum.

Photo: Dan Hildebran for the Monitor. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Members of Historic Melrose dug through parts of land surrounding the Melrose United Methodist Church earlier this month, searching for clues about the parcels history. HMI President Keith Bollum said he often ran across items that appeared to be of historical significance on the surface of Hampton Street, in front of the church, while riding his bicycle. He recently asked the church leaders for permission to dig around the property. Fifteen Historic Melrose volunteers marked off 20, onemeter squares for the dig, then methodically scraped the top soil, reaching an average depth of eight inches. Volunteers then gathered at Melroses Homemakers Club and cataloged the findings. After analyzing the artifacts, Bollum said he hopes to issue a short report, describing what went on at the site before the church was built in 1879. Bollum said he also hopes to enlist the expertise of Historic Melrose members in analyzing the artifacts. He said member Dr. Mark Barrow is an expert on indian points like arrowheads and another member, Dr. Terry Marshall is an authority on pharmaceutical containers. Nails and pieces of glass and ceramics made up most of the groups finds. However, they also found several arrowhead and spear points, which Bollum said was surprising. He added that participants were also surprised by the amount a fun they had during the dig. Bollum said he has found evidence that a jail and a plantation were located near the site prior to the churchs construction in 1879. He also said that horse races finished in the area around the future church site, and that he believes the original Bellamy Road, commissioned in 1824, may have passed ne ar the parcel. this spear point (center).

Lake Region Monitor Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 3AUF research: Just 7 minutes of exercise a day can stave off mobility disability in elderly BY BILL LEVESQUE UF HealthSeven short minutes. Tick tock. Thats a pot of coffee brewing to completion. Its a melodic tune or two floating from a car radio. Seven minutes are a handful of commercials on television. Seven minutes also might be a lifeline in your golden years. A recent study by researchers at the University of Florida and around the nation shows that just under seven minutes of moderate walking or other exercise each day 48 minutes a week can improve physical functioning in the elderly and stave off major mobility disability. Thats very, very little, said Marco Pahor, M.D., director of the UF Institute on Aging and the studys co-author. People may say, Well, doing this little cant mean much. But it does. It means a great deal. Feel free to juggle those 48 minutes in any arrangement. How about a little less than 10 minutes of exercise Monday through Friday, Pahor suggested, if you want the weekend off to rest? That journey from nothing to a few minutes of moderate exercise daily, Pahor said, actually bridges a chasm. There is a huge difference, he said, between doing nothing and doing just a little. Seven minutes daily for many people, its a walk around the block. The study, published in the online journal PLOS One, is an offshoot of the Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders, or LIFE, trial. Released in 2014, it enrolled 1,635 sedentary participants, ages 70 to 89, who all had functional limitations. The participants were split into two groups. One received health education and performed stretching exercises. The second group took part in a structured, moderate intensity program of resistance and flexibility exercise, in addition to 150 minutes of walking per week. Physical activity that raises the heartbeat is considered moderate. Everyone in the study wore a device to measure their physical activity. And the researchers then monitored them for an average of about two-and-a-half years. This original study found the moderate physical activity group maintained their ability to walk at a rate 18 percent higher than older adults who did not exercise. It also led to a 28 percent reduction in people permanently losing the ability to walk easily. The new follow-up study, using data from the original, then examined the question: What is the minimum amount of exercise where participants see a significant benefit? Seven minutes daily the length of your morning shower. Researchers, of course, note that there is no need to stop at seven minutes. The more you do, Pahor said, the more you benefit. Researchers arent surprised that walking is especially critical in the calculus of our health. Walking is a fundamental part of being human. We walk everywhere. To the mailbox. Down a lazy forest trail. Up mountains. Down stairs. For the elderly, walking can be the difference between being homebound or in a nursing home and living an independent life. Mobility predicts all kinds of health-related outcomes, from mortality to morbidity, cardiovascular disease, cognitive functional Marco Pahor, M.D., director of the UF Institute on Aging saw the defendant approach his property, armed with a machete and ax. After the defendant made a threat, the victim retreated into his home and instructed another occupant of the house to bring his weapons. The two occupants then observed the defendant break down their privacy gate and approach the residence. Armed with a pistol and shotgun, the victim told the defendant not to enter the home, warning the defendant that he was armed and would protect his family if necessary. The defendant kicked in the front door, breaking the door lock and jamb, and entered the house still armed with the machete and ax. As the defendant crossed the threshold of the door and stepped inside the residence, the victim fired one shot from the pistol that struck the defendant in the abdomen. The defendant then dropped his weapons and fell back onto the ground from the victims elevated porch. The victim held the defendant at gunpoint until deputies arrived. The defendant was transported to UF Health Shands in Gainesville. According to the arrest report, the second occupant of the home called 911 before Harris entered the house and stayed on the line with a 911 operator until deputies arrived. Man arrested for smoking pot at Keystone BeachBrian Haugdahl, 19, was arrested Nov. 17 by Clay deputies for possession of not more than 20 grams of marijuana. According to an arrest report, a deputy was conducting a property check at Keystone Beach at 3:14 p.m. when he detected the odor of marijuana. I asked the defendant and his friends to come over; the deputy wrote in the report, they willingly complied, and I asked about the smell. The officer added that while talking to the defendant, I could smell a very strong odor of marijuana emitting from his clothing. After interviewing the defendant, the deputy searched the man and found two marijuana blunts weighing 1.2 grams. Omission on birthday card leads to arrestJohn Wayne Allen, 40, of Keystone Heights was arrested Nov. 18 by Clay deputies for domestic battery. According to an arrest report, the victim and defendant have been married for 18 years. The victim stated that the defendant had been drinking all day, and late in the afternoon the victim arrived home and decided to celebrate the birthday of the couples daughter. While (the daughter) was opening presents, the deputy wrote in the report, J. Allen got upset because (the victim) did not put his name on a card. The defendant came at the victim, calling her a (redacted from report) and shoved the victim in the right shoulder. After being shoved, the victim had to exit the house to get away from the defendant to avoid further altercation. The incident was witnessed by all children in the residence. The deputy added that he observed redness but no bruising in the victims shoulder area. The officer wrote that he interviewed several witnesses before speaking to the defendant. I then made contact with the defendant, John Allen, the deputy wrote. The defendant was extremely intoxicated and extremely verbally abusive. While talking to the deputy, the defendant got aggressive toward the victim, yelling at her and balling up his fists. The deputy added that while escorting the man to his patrol vehicle, the defendant tried to pull away three times, and the deputy put him on the ground. The defendants head was scratched during the maneuver, and Clay County Fire Rescue medically cleared the defendant before the deputy transported him to the jail in Green Cove Springs. Starke man arrested for in methArthur Alvin Letchworth, 65, of Starke was arrested Nov. 15 by Clay deputies for trafficking in or possession of 14 grams or more of amphetamine. According to an arrest report, a deputy was conducting traffic enforcement on S.R. 16 near Camp Blanding when he saw the defendant pass at 70 miles per hour, according to a laser speed detector. During the traffic stop, a police K-9 alerted to the odor of narcotics in the vehicle. Deputies found baggies of methamphetamine in the center console of the vehicle with a total weight of 36.94 grams.

Girl Scout Troop 474, a local chapter of brownies and daisies, rallied together to help the Melrose Public Library give books to children in need through the Putnam County Library Systems annual Angel Tree Program. Darlene Walker of the Putnam County Library System started the Angel Tree program when she joined the library system in 2006. The program is designed to give kids in foster care or protective management new books, tailored to their specific age and interests, for the holidays. Participants in the program choose an angel ornament printed with a childs first name, age, and interests then return the angel to the library with a hand-selected book for that child. The program is celebrating its 12th year, having gathered 2,917 books. Program participants who have selected an angel from the tree, but have not returned the angel with their books yet, can still bring books in until Wednesday, Nov. 29. The Melrose Public Library has gathered nearly 70 books for the program with the help of local individuals with a generous portion of that total being the 53 books from the Girl Scouts alone. With the help of the girls, the library was able to quickly provide to all of their assigned angels. Troop leaders Brittany Martin and Sara Hebert said, the kids were having so much fun selecting stories for their angels they were really trying hard to find the most Troop leaders Brittany Martin and Sara Hebert said, the kids were having so much fun selecting stories for their angels they were really trying hard to find the most perfect books. perfect books.

She said that some experts predict that if lawmakers do away with the deductions, home values could drop by as much as 10 percent. Murphy said that in northeast Florida, all key indicators are showing a shrinking home inventory and rising prices. She said that over the last three years, a sellers market has developed in Jacksonville, the beaches and Gainesville. In those metropolitan areas, you do not have enough homes for the amount of people looking to purchase, she said. That is what is driving home prices up: the lack of inventory. In the rural areas, in 2017, including the Lake Region, she added, you are really starting to see it swing from a buyers market to a sellers market. Murphy said that one statistic she checks almost daily is the absorption rate, which represents the time it would take to sell all the homes listed in a particular market. Two years ago, we had almost 24 months of inventory for sale, she said of the absorption rate in the Lake Region, meaning, that if not another house came on the market, it would take 24 months to sell the houses we already have. According to charts shown by Murphy, the absorption rate for the area that includes Starke and the Lake Region has decreased from around 8.5 months in November 2016 to five months in October 2017. Its more like three months for Keystone Heights, she said. Murphy also said the sold-tolist ratio, which compares the listing price to the prices houses actually sold for, topped 94 percent in January and October of 2017. If its priced right, its selling pretty close to asking price, she said of houses for sale. Murphy said some sellers make the mistake of pricing their homes higher, thinking they can always come down. That is one of the worst things you can do, she said. You are better off to price it right the first time, and you will get your price. Its better to have five offers... than to not get any offers at all because you priced too high. Murphy said that within zip code 32656, 213 homes have sold in the last 11 months. The number includes mobile homes and prices ranged between $10,000 and $425,000. Thats fabulous, she said. Thats a lot of homes. She added that 17 homes are now under contract but have not yet closed. We only have 49 homes on the market, she said. What does this tell you? It tells me that there is no inventory. Those homes out there that are not selling are overpriced. Bill Watson (the founder of Watson Realty) used to say: Price fixes everything, Murphy continued. If you have that house next to the railroad tracks, with airplanes flying over it, price can fix that. Every house will sell if its priced right.HOMESContinued from 1A Annie Grogan, Clay County Consultant for the Small Business Development Center at the University of North Florida, explains Small Business Saturday during the November meeting of the Keystone-Lake Region Business Association.SMALLContinued from 1A Church dedicates Christmas boxesTrinity Baptist Church dedicated 1,271 Christmas gift boxes during services on Nov. 5.

James Russell Wiggins In other news from the councils Nov. 20 meeting:City considering serving alcoholThe council heard the first reading of a proposed ordinance that would allow the city to serve beer and wine on city property during special events. Hart said the intent of the ordinance was to allow the city to serve alcohol during a holiday open house on Dec. 11. He also said that while the ordinance allows the city to sell beer and wine, the city could not now do so because it does not have a liquor license from the state. Lewandowski and Brown both asked Hart if the ordinance would allow the Our Country Day Committee to hold its annual street dance and serve alcohol at Keystone Beach Park. The committee made such a request for the 2017 event, but the council denied the request. We are slightly opening the door, hart responded, adding that the committee would have to get council approval before serving alcohol at the park. Hart noted that the proposed ordinance only applies to city events, and the Our Country Day street dance is not a city event. The council approved the first reading 3-1. A second reading, a public hearing and a final vote on the proposed ordinance will take place during the councils Dec. 4, 4:30 p.m. meeting. Council will look at reopening farmers marketCouncil members agreed to consider reopening the citys farmers market, which ran for eight years across South Lawrence Boulevard from city hall until officials closed it in 2015, citing declining attendance and vendor participation. Lewandowski said he thought the markets weekly schedule was too demanding, taxing city resources. He recommended Keystone Heights consider operating a farmers market monthly, like Orange Park. Hart said he is open to reestablishing the market, as long as city staff does not have to get involved with its operation. Hart also said he liked Lewandowskis suggestion of a monthly schedule, adding that he did not want a city market to directly compete with the Midway Farmers Market, which opens every Saturday morning. Lewandowski said he also wanted city staff to explore the possibility of building public restroom facilities in the park. City to hold open house, ribbon cuttingKeystone Heights officials will host a ribbon cutting for a new county boat ramp on S.R. 21 and an open house at the beach pavilion beginning at 4:30 on Dec. 11. City Manager Scott Kornegay said Sen. Rob Bradley and Rep. Bobby Payne have accepted invitations to attend the event. Representatives from the Heritage Commission will also be at the open house, as well as a city official to answer questions about the citys 2020 streetscape plan. Brown recommended the city host quarterly open house events, to inform the public about issues the council is undertaking. Pay for mayor, council may be increasedLewandowski recommended the city increase the mayors compensation to above what other council members earn. Now, the mayor makes $300 a month, like other members of the council. He said the mayor typically spends much more time on city business than other council members. He proposed increasing the pay now, but making the change effective after the 2018 city elections. Hart recommended the council also make cost of living adjustments to council members pay. He said it would be easy to go back and calculate cost of living increases since the current salary was set, so that any increase would not be a real increase, but only an inflation adjustment. Like Lewandowski, Hart said that any vote on council pay would only apply to future office holders, so council members could not vote themselves a pay raise. The council instructed city staff to research and draft a proposed ordinance for the raises. City to upgrade Fox Run RoadThe council approved an interlocal agreement with the county, authorizing the county to make improvements to Fox Run Road and maintain the road on a monthly basis. Fox Run Road extends north from Commercial Circle, between Lake Area Ministries and Brooklyn Boys Pizza. In 2015, the city paved 100 feet of the roadway between the two businesses at a cost of $28,354. City Manager Scott Kornegay told the council that paving the entire road would cost more than $95,000. Under the inter-local agreement, the county will upgrade the road using clay and recycled crushed concrete at a cost of $9,322.80. The county will also grade the road monthly at a cost of $57.89. Blimp cancels airpark landingsAirpark chairman David Kirkland old the council that the Goodyear Blimp has canceled planned landings at the Keystone Airpark during December. The airship was to fly around Gainesville during the week of the Florida-Florida State game, but the two teams 2017 performances have apparently made the game less attractive for the tire company. Kirkland also said the airpark plans to request bids on a new fixed operations building in February, and that the facility passed its annual Florida Department of Transportation sa fety inspection in October. CITYContinued from 1A Keystone Heights paved 100 feet of Fox Run Road in 2015, at a cost of $28,354.
BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Debbie Nistler and her family, like so many others, will cook and eat a turkey on Thanksgiving, but they can also add the fact they hatched and raised it as well. In fact, Nistler, the Bradford County Extension director, will have done the same for multiple turkeys on families tables as part of a business shes started under the name of Southern Shades Farm. I wanted to do something that was kind of an unusual business venture, she said. Its really tough to find really good turkeys for Thanksgiving that are fresh, (with) no hormones. Theyre all fresh off the farm. All but two of the 12 turkeys Nistler had available in this first year of her business venture were purchased. She raised them all with the intent of having them ready by Thanksgiving, but shes looking to expand the number of turkeys she raises to be sold, dividing them into two cages. One cage will consist of turkeys that will be ready by Thanksgiving; the other will consist of turkeys that will be ready by Christmas. This first year of the business, which also consists of raising and selling Boer goats, has gone well, with Nistler saying she lost hardly any turkeys. Ive been super happy, she said. From hatching to now, I only lost three birds, which is pretty good. Two of them were from the hurricane, and one of them was just when he was a chick. The minute we put him in a bigger cage, something crawled in there and killed it. Nistler raises heritage turkeys, which differ in a few ways from broad breasted turkeys, which are the conventional turkeys people buy in grocery stores and consume on Thanksgiving. Heritage turkeys take longer to mature. Nistler said the turkeys shell have ready for Thanksgiving were hatched in June, whereas broad breasted turkeys can be started in July or August and be ready. Unlike broad breasted turkeys, heritage turkeys can fly and roost just like turkeys in the wild. The heritage turkeys use of muscles that broad breasted turkeys dont use affects the taste of the birds, Nistler said, comparing it to the marbling found in red meat, where fat is infused into the muscle. She said once broad breasted turkeys reach their maximum size, they start putting on extra fat. The Butterballs, they have a lot of external fat, she said, adding that the fat of heritage turkeys is kind of infused into the meat. It just really changes the taste of the bird. Though heritage turkeys dont produce the amount of breast meat that broad breasted turkeys do, they tend to be bigger birds overall. Nistler said many of her turkeys will be between 25 and 30 pounds, though she pointed out one she said will probably reach close to 50 pounds. The largest broad breasted turkeys tend to be approximately 20 pounds, she said. To get the turkeys to their mature weight, you have to feed them, of course. Nistler said finding the right kind of feed has been one of the challenges this first year of her business, but she found a 22-percent-protein feed at Tractor Supply Co. that shed been unable to find in other stores. She gives her turkeys that along with cracked corn. Thats why my mama and papa birds are so fat right now, Nistler said. Theyve been getting the 22-percent protein and loving it. Besides finding the right feed, Nistler has had to ensure the turkeys keep eating. She said turkeys tend to go off their feed if theyre upset by something. The aftermath of Hurricane Irma, for example, was a concern. We were giving them blackoil sunflower seeds for a little while to spark their appetites, especially after the storm because they were a little shaken, Nistler said. Nistler cannot process turkeys ahead prior to selling them, but once a person buys one, she can process it if they wish. The turkeys cost $65 plus an additional $15 if they want it processed. In Florida, they have to own the livestock because Im not a USDA-approved slaughter facility, Nistler said. Once they own the bird, if they would like for me to process it, Ill process it. Now that its their bird, they can do whatever they want with their bird. Nistler said she spent a couple of years thinking about the business, trying to figure out which breeds would work best and how long it would take to raise those breeds to maturity. She said she wanted breeds that were more naturally pestresistant so she didnt have to use artificial means to control pests. She also wanted breeds that were not aggressive. Heritage breeds fit the bill. Theyre very sweet-tempered birds, Nistler said. Still, there are challenges, BY SAMANTHA GRENROCK UF/IFAS Public Relations Specialist When Madison Bennett, 16, had a chance to raise poultry through her county 4-H youth development program, she wanted to think outside of the traditional chicken coop. I wanted to do something unique, so I decided to start my own business, Turkey Time, said Bennett, a member of the Bradford County 4-H program. Now I raise and sell turkeys for Thanksgiving and the holidays. As she developed her business model, Bennett wanted to capitalize on recent consumer food trends. My turkeys are farm fresh they live their whole lives in one place, where they get to roam free and arent raised with growth hormones or antibiotics, she said. This is the kind of product more and more people are interested in having on their holiday dinner table. Since starting the business with her first group of chicks just six months ago, Bennett has produced 13 finished turkeys and has already taken several orders for Thanksgiving.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer When it was all said and done, the Sneads High School volleyball team captured the Class 1A championship as most wouldve predicted, but Union County head coach Jordan Windham and two of her seniors said the Tigers had nothing to hang their heads about following their 3-0 (25-14, 25-13, 25-10) loss to the Pirates on Nov. 17 at the University of North Florida. If you had watched us at the beginning of the season, nobody would have ever thought that we wouldve made it this far, said senior Madelyn Kish, who finished with five kills. I think that even though we lost just a couple of minutes ago, we played our hearts out. Thats all we came to do. I think that we did a great job and came together as a team. Its rough. Its tough to lose like that your last game, but Im proud of us. Only two teams make it to the final game of the season. Sneads was no surprise. The Pirates (264) walked off the court after their win over Union with their fifth straight championship trophy. Finishing as runner-up did nothing to take away from Unions accomplishment. Sure, there were tears afterward, but the fact remained that this Tigers team finished as the second-best team in the state. It was also the first time in program history Union has played for the state title. I think that God has bigger plans for us, said senior Taylor Beatty, who had four kills, four digs and three blocks. I think that we gave it all, and it wasnt enough. Thats OK. Thats just what (God) wanted to happen. I know weve set the foundations. The first time ever weve gone this far. I couldnt be more proud of my team. I couldnt be more proud of the other girls and the love and support we had. The Tigers finished the season with a 14-12 record, which Kish said gave no indication of just what kind of a team this was. Our record doesnt show the heart that we have, Kish said. I think that it honestly means more to me than a perfect record because it shows how much growth weve had throughout the season and how much we came together. Windham said, Ive said it for weeks that this is my dream team. For us to get here and to be their assistant for three years and then to finish this out this year as their head coach has just meant the world. Its meant everything. Theyve worked hard all season. An attack error by Sneads tied the score at 3-3 in the first set, while a kill by Kish off Michaela Edenfields block attempt tied it at 4-4. The Pirates scored eight of the next 13 points before scoring six straight with Alyssa Stagner serving. The last three points earned with Stagner serving came on two attack errors and a double hit. Edenfield had two kills as the Pirates continued to pull away, with Stagner dumping the ball over the net for the final set point. Union trailed 6-2 in the second set, but scored two straight points with Emily ONeal serving. Another point with Fulgham serving pulled the Tigers to within 7-6, but thats as close as it would get. Edenfield had a block and a kill that helped the Pirates go on a 6-0 run for a 13-6 lead. A Beatty kill later forced side-out and made the score 158. Sneads was then called for a double hit after a block by Unions Summer Fulgham kept play alive, making the score 159. Sneads scored 10 of the next 14 points, getting two more kills from Edenfield to help close the set out with a 12-point win. A 5-0 run by Sneads in the third set put the Pirates ahead 10-2. Beatty, Fulgham and Kish each had a kill, but the Tigers could do little to make a game of it, with the Pirates leading by as many as 15 points. Allie Ann McCord closed out the win for Sneads with two straight kills. Fulgham and Madison Adams each finished with two blocks, while Adams added six assists and five service aces. For Sneads, it was continued dominance against 1A competition. The Pirates havent lost to a 1A school from 2013 through 2017 and havent lost a set to a 1A school since Oct. 24, 2013.

Raising these turkeys has taught me a lot about running a business and being an entrepreneur, said Bennett, an 11-year 4-H participant.

Bradford County Extension Director Debbie Nistler said, Turkey Time has renewed Madisons enthusiasm for 4-H and agriculture. She is very proud of her turkeys and her business. Bennetts project is representative of the kind of impact 4-H can have on youth, Nistler said. Each 4-H members project is their passion, Nistler said. We want this passion to translate into life skills for the future. I hope more youth explore entrepreneurism as a way to expand the boarders of the classic 4-H livestock project.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer One more round. It has been the mantra for the Bradford High School football team since Brian Tomlinson was hired as head coach in the spring the quest to always go one step farther. The Tornadoes have taken it to heart. One week after winning their first playoff game since 2004, they defeated visiting Dunnellon 24-14 on Nov. 17 to claim the Region 2-4A championship. Bradford (101) now hosts Raines (11-1) in a state semifinal game on Friday, Nov. 24, at 7:30 p.m. Oh, my gosh. Its like a dream, said senior quarterback Zion Barber, who threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another, along with kicking all three extra points as well as a 20yard field goal. Its like Im in a dream. We practiced all week for this. Dunnellon (8-3) eliminated Bradford in the first round of the playoffs the last two seasons. Defensive lineman Gerald Smith said he and his fellow seniors did not want to be put out by the Tigers again. We had to get it, Smith said. It was our last chance. We went and got it done. Smith recovered a fumble at his own 5-yard line to stop a Dunnellon scoring threat in the fourth quarter. In fact, the Bradford defense twice made stops inside its own 5 in the second half and thwarted three Dunnellon red-zone opportunities in all. Theyre unbelievable, Tomlinson said of his defensive players. Theyve done it all year long. Its just unreal what they do. Coach (Rob) Charles and the defensive staff, they get them playing hard. Its a heck of a team. The Tigers entered the game averaging 340 yards and 37 points per game, but left Starke with 236 yards and just two scores. If it wasnt for our defense, we wouldve had no chance in this game, Barber said. It was the Bradford offense that got the chance to make an initial impact as the Tornadoes received the opening kickoff. Jeremiah Vaughn (nine carries, 52 yards) bounced outside for 22-yard gain on the first play of scrimmage as he and Tally Chandler (14 carries, 69 yards) combined for 63 yards. Chandlers 17-yard gain on a reverse-field run resulted in first-and-goal at the Dunnellon 2. Barber then carried the ball three straight times, plunging into the end zone from a yard out on fourth down. His PAT made it 7-0 approximately two minutes into the game. On Barbers three carries, he was the lone back in the backfield, a formation the Tornadoes utilized to great advantage often as Barber finished with 127 yards on 19 carries. Tomlinson said he thought it was a way of having success against the Dunnellon defense. Its something we saw on film, he said, adding, Its something we thought we could take advantage of. We were able to a lot of times. Dunnellons offense gained first downs on three straight plays on the ensuing series. Decorian Patterson had a 10-yard reception to the Bradford 39, followed by Jase Williams 13yard run. Williams then turned a shovel pass into an 11-yard gain to the 15. The Tigers got as close as the 10, but after an incomplete pass on third down, Bradfords Jaquez Mosley held Williams to no gain on fourth down. Patterson, who also plays safety for the Tigers, intercepted a Barber pass on the next series, giving Dunnellon the ball at its own 43. Lee corralled a high shotgun snap and gained 10 yards on a third-down run to the Bradford 40. A 10-yard run by Patterson resulted in another first down, while Lee rolled out on a fourth-down play and found Patterson for a 9-yard gain that resulted in a first down at the 18. Runs by Williams and Braelan Edwards moved the Tigers to the 2, with Tyre Frazier eventually capping the drive with a 1-yard touchdown run at the 11:22 mark of the second quarter. Lees run on the two-point conversion put Dunnellon ahead 8-7. Bradford took advantage of a special-teams miscue the next time Dunnellon had the ball. Punter Maurice Goolsby had to field a snap that sailed over his head and was eventually tackled at his own 10-yard line. Barber had a 7-yard run to the 3, followed by a 2-yard run by Chandler. Defensive tackle Kyle Smith tackled Barber for a 2-yard loss on third down, so Bradford settled for Barbers 20-yard field goal, which put the Tornadoes up 10-8 with 4:56 remaining in the half. A pair of tackles for 1-yard gains by Bradfords Trace Barber helped force Dunnellon to go three-and-out on the ensuing series. The Tornadoes offense responded by putting together a 68-yard drive to increase their lead before halftime. Barber picked up the drives initial first down on a 7-yard run and then completed a 13-yard pass to Nathan Davis for another first down at the Dunnellon 42. Barber threw a 14-yard pass to Vaughn for a first down at the 30. Then, on third-and-10, Barber ran for 15 yards to the 15. The quarterback, who finished the night 9-of-14 for 126 yards, then hit Davis with a slant over the middle that turned into a 14yard touchdown with 27 seconds left before halftime. Barbers PAT made the score 17-8. Dunnellon got off to a fast start to open the second half, with Edwards running backward and reversing field as he returned the kickoff 42 yards to the Bradford 33. Lee completed passes of 11 and 10 yards to move the Tigers to the 12. Williams scored on a run from there, helped out by a fumble that bounced right back up into his hands as he never had to break stride. Bradfords Smith tackled Edwards short of the goal line on the two-point play, making the score 17-14 at the 10:49 mark of the third quarter. The team wasnt fazed by the quick score, Smith said, adding that Tomlinson told the Tornadoes at halftime not to give up. We just had to keep going, Smith said. We had to treat the score like it was 0-0. We just kept going. We didnt stop. Tomlinson said, We told them it wasnt going to be easy.

Dear Editor: Situated on 167 acres just off SR 100 in southeastern Bradford County is a place set apart for welcoming all people to experience Christ and creation in ways that deepen faith and strengthen relationships. This place is the Montgomery Presbyterian Camp and Conference Center a.k.a. simply Camp Montgomery. Im thankful for this place and its ministry to all people. Every summer for the past decade, Camp Montgomery has welcomed a dozen or more of my students. These teens spend from six days to two weeks recovering from a school year and recreating on three lakes with swimming, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and tubing behind the boat on the big lake. All other camp activities are offered: archery, dodge ball, singing, crafts, basketball, tie dying shirts, cookouts, smores under the stars, skits, talent shows, etc. So, what makes Camp Montgomery different? Well, very inconspicuously, as only God can, each campers needs are met without the camper ever Thankful for Camp Montgomery 4B Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 Thanks for visiting us on Halloween!

Letters email@example.com Dear Editor: The Bradford County Telegraph Nov. 9 article about Flooding indicates Connie Henderson said Chemours discharges 2-3 million gallons a day (mgd). The 2-3 mgd is the annual average and has no real meaning when evaluating flooding impacts. What Henderson failed to tell the County Commissioners and the public is Chemours reported to DEP that it discharged 57.85 mgd on 9/11/17, 63.13 mgd on 9/12/17, 79.15 mgd on 9/13/17, 39.81 mgd on 9/14/17, and 52.41 mgd on 9/15/17. The Chemours discharges of over 110 million gallons on September 11th and 12th may have represented over 1/3 of the water that flooded homes near the golf course and the homes and apartments on Bedford Court north of the Hospital. The impacts of the Chemours discharges were likely more damaging because of blockages in Alligator Creek caused by trees and debris. Some of the trees were in the Creek before Irma and many more fell into the creek during Irma. The impact of Chemours discharges on Lake Sampson and Crosby flooding is a little different. During August, Chemours discharges averaged 6.1 mgd and for the period 9/1/17 to 9/10/17 Chemours discharges averaged 9.2 mgd. These discharges would have impacted the level of Lake Sampson and the ability to lower Lake Sampson by opening one or more of the water control gates. If all the water discharged by Chemours since July 2017 were removed from Lakes Sampson and Rowell the lake levels would have been about 8 inches lower when Irma arrived. If the Chemours discharges were removed from the lakes for the period when Lake Sampson was over an elevation of 135 feet the lakes would have been 3 to 4 inches lower. Chemours discharges appear to have been greater than 10 mgd for the last 15 days of September and over 20 mgd for the first few days of October. These discharges after Irma would have slowed the rate that Lake Sampson and Crosby declined after Irma. Taking Chemours discharges out of Alligator Creek would reduce flood peaks on Lakes Sampson and Crosby and allow flood lake levels to recede faster. A significant part of the Chemours water discharges that had such devastating impacts on residents on Alligator Creek and Lake Sampson and Crosby could have benefited the Keystone Lakes. A clear alternative to flooding along Alligator Creek in Starke would be to have Chemours discharge the first 20 mgd of water to the Keystone Lakes. The old mine area would serve as a large stormwater retention basin holding water to eventually flow to the Keystone Lakes. This would benefit the Keystone Lakes and likely prevent most if not all the flooding along Alligator Creek. It would also make it easier to regulate the level of Lake Sampson. Henderson stated that 100 million gallons had gone to the Keystone Lakes since June. The proposal to move the first 20 mgd of discharges to the old mine area would have delivered over 1,000 million gallons to the Keystone Lakes. The two Water Management Districts could help by funding a Citing Chemours discharge average means nothing in regard to part of the infrastructure needed to increase the amount of water Chemours discharges to the Keystone Lakes. Henderson referenced the minimum flows and levels of the Santa Fe River. In the past the SRWMD has held the position that Bradford County must be flooded so the minimum flows for the Santa Fe River can be met. After Irma, this is a position I hope SRWMD is willing to change. Flood prevention is a core mission of the SRWMD and in my opinion, is more important than minimum flows. Paul Still Starke Dear Editor: One morning, I finished breakfast at the crack of day and went out on the front porch to water my flowers. Noticing that everything had a beautiful color, I next went to my back (East) door where there is no overhang. Then I stepped into a world of such glorious color that I was overcome with awe, gratitude and prayer. It seemed a sweet communion with God and I was a part of His whole universe. Such moments are treasures but they are so fleeting. We people who live in houses with four walls miss so much! But just a glimpse of Gods glory can change a gray day to a blessing.

For example, Lake Butler Middle School coach Robbie Best carried enough players to have two teams, with the A team winning its conference championship. We are getting to a point where were trying to really start younger and really develop so that we can eventually get to this point, to get to that point that Sneads is at so that we can win several (state titles) in a row. Kish said, Theyre just fundamentally sound, and thats one thing we lack. We have younger girls that havent played as long. Thats OK. We make up for that in the effort we give, but its tough to play a team like that where were just not up to that caliber that they are. I think we played the best we couldve played against them. Windham hopes that her team playing for the state championship inspires younger girls to want to play volleyball, but she also wanted to stress to those potential players that it takes a lot of hard work to accomplish what the UCHS varsity team did. We spend hours upon hours training and just working to get things right, Windham said. If youre afraid of that, it may not work out for you, but if you arent afraid to come in there, put in the hours, put in the work and dedicate your heart to this team and come together, then Ive got a spot for you. There are several girls who are coming up from the middle school now who will make a starting impact on this team. Were very excited about that. So the future could be bright, but Windham was still emotional knowing that her seniors Adams, Beatty, Kish and Brooke Waters had played their last match after helping the program reach tremendous heights. We just hate to see this one end, Windham said.

Im talking about National Veterinary Technician Week. The individuals you see assisting the veterinarian do more than you can see in the exam room alone. Veterinary technicians deliver medications, administer and monitor anesthesia, assist the veterinarian in surgery, collect and run lab tests, and so much more. They do all that they do while remaining patient and compassionate. They never lose sight of what their mission is and why they are there. The veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and the veterinary receptionists make up the veterinary team. Veterinarians rely on their team to care and provide for their patients beyond just the medicine. This week I would like to personally thank my awesome team. I could not do what I do without their help, their inspiration to be the best, and their compassion. It is my privilege to work with each and every one of them. Next time you see a member of your veterinary health care team, give them two paws up! As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week our thoughts turn toward all the blessings we have received during the last year. Not to mention the food! As the smell of pies and meats ll the air, our pets are scheming how they can score some tasty morsels during the chaos of family and friends. We know that noone wants to leave their furriest family member out of the festivities, so here are some pointers of dos and donts for the holiday. DO Turkey. White meat only, no skin and no bones. DONT give onions, garlic, leeks, scallions or any other member of the onion clan. Even cooked these veggies can cause a toxic anemia in your pet. DO Mash Potatoes. These are easy on the tummy, just make sure you watch out for butter and milk. Just add a little broth to moisten them. DONT give grapes or raisins. These have been shown to cause kidney failure in pets. A tasty safe alternative is cranberry sauce but only in small amounts to cut down on sugars. DO Macaroni and cheese. A little goes a long way, also left over pasta is also fair game. DONT give any dairy to our feline friends as most are lactose intolerant. Great going down but not so much on the way back up. DO Green beans. Fresh is best. If cooked, be aware of additional ingredients (onions, bacon, etc) DONT give alcohol. It only takes a small amount to be toxic to pets. Also be aware of unlikely sources of alcohol; fruit cake, candies, and unbaked breads. Make sure your pets are secure during mealtime so they wont beg and so your visitors are not inclined to feed them. To make your pets feel like they are taking part even when they are separate, schedule meal time during the same time as the humans. On behalf of the entire staff at Town & Country Veterinary Clinic, Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer In times of disasters, such as the approach and aftermath of hurricanes, one would expect to find officials representing the various levels of government, emergency management and law enforcement working together. Also included in that group are county Extension agents. At this years Bradford County Extension Farm-City luncheon, which was held Nov. 6 at the Bradford County Fairgrounds, featured speaker Angie Lindsey discussed the role county extension offices and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences play in preparing for and assisting with disasters. Lindsey is one of four UF faculty members working with the UF/ IFAS Center for Public Issues Education, which is known as the PIE Center. Lindsey said the PIE Center conducts research on complex agricultural and natural resource issues in developing education and informed decisionmaking. My work falls into helping communities adapt to these changing issues within agriculture and natural resources, Lindsey said. As we know, disasters greatly impact the agricultural and natural resource issues, which greatly impact all of our communities, especially in our state. When partnered with the Extension Disaster Education Network, which consists of Extension professionals and IFAS faculty from throughout the country as well as representatives from state and federal agencies, resources can be shared for how to best prepare for and recover from disasters, Lindsey said. Its wonderful at linking up with federal and local agencies as well as providing really good information credible, timely, research-based information on how best to prepare for disasters, how to mitigate disasters and, lastly, how best to recover from disasters, Lindsey said. Lindsey spoke specifically to efforts undertaken before and after Hurricane Irma. Before the arrival of Irma, the dispersal of information and education was a key component as well as being involved with the State Emergency Response Teams Emergency Support Function 17, which deals with animal and agricultural issues. Phone calls were made daily within the IFAS network in the state as well as utilizing the GroupMe app for texting. We were trying to meet the needs of our county Extension offices as much as possible, Lindsey said. If they were working in our communities to get ready, we were trying to help them as much as possible to get ready for this. Post-Irma efforts sounded a lot like pre-Irma efforts. Communication played a major role in determining what needs were out there and informing those who could lend assistance. Determining needs in the southern part of the state was difficult. We really didnt know what was going on down in south Florida, Lindsey said. It was troublesome. We were trying to figure out was going on down there. Involvement with Emergency Support Function 17 continued. Lindsey described how she was at an incident command post outside of Orlando for four days helping to make sure there was enough hay and feed being distributed throughout the state to those areas that needed it, as well as helping the State Agricultural Response Team rescue animals from flooded areas. County personnel stepped up to help personnel in other counties. Lindsey singled out the efforts of personnel from the panhandle, who were very good about coming down and saying, Where do we need to go? Lindsey said efforts were focused on the areas that were hardest hit, but it was a difficult knowing how widespread Irmas impact was. Even though south Florida and southwest Florida were very much hard hit, areas like here and Duval County were flooding and had other issues as well, Lindsey said. It was very hard to try to help everybody all at one time. In looking at some of the post-Irma response highlights, Lindsey mentioned a 4-H mother in Highlands County who approached a lineman who had just restored her electricity and asked if there was anything she could do to help him. He jokingly replied, You can wash this shirt. The woman told him to hand it over. Thus was the start of Linemen Laundry Ladies a group of women who washed uniforms at Sebring International Speedway, with companies such as Tide and Home Depot donating detergent and washers and dryers. A farm in Pasco County had all of its newly planted blueberry bushes blown over. Lindsey said Kevin Folta, chair of the UF/IFAS horticultural sciences department, called graduate and undergraduate students he knew were still on campus, recruiting them to make a trip to the farm and re-plant all the bushes. Personnel at the Citrus County Extension Office turned their facility into a drop-off site for donations and then a site for the distribution of items like ice and water. They quickly became flexible in trying to help the needs of the folks there, Lindsey said. Lindsey said efforts are now underway to address what couldve been done better during and after Irma and how to have a more pro-active response. I felt like we were very reactive, Lindsey said. I feel like moving ahead we can do some pro-active things, not during hurricane season, but starting early in 2018 that can help us be better prepared for the next hurricane season. The UF/IFAS disaster handbook as well as other materials needs to be streamlined and updated, Lindsey said. Plus, issues like mental health need to be taken into account. Lindsey said Extension personnel heard some citrus farmers, for example, who suffered a tremendous financial loss, talk of suicide. With that in mind, a Rapid Response Grant has been applied for, with the hopes of creating a first-aid/mental-health tool kit that Extension personnel can be trained to use after disasters. Its definitely an issue we want to look at, Lindsey said. Brian Johns, who recently retired as Bradford Countys director of emergency management, also spoke, discussing how farmers have been affected by virtually no rain from January to June, followed by heavy rains that lasted through Hurricane Irma. Since Irma, wet got back on the dry side, Johns said. Johns said weather personnel make predictions on whether a year is going to be good or bad, but it only takes one hurricane to come through to make it a bad year, regardless of what weather forecasters project. When its a bad year for emergency management and believe you me, its been a bad year for emergency management its also a bad year for our farmers, Johns said. Johns said he could relate to what farmers are going through, citing the fact that his grandparents were farmers as well as his father. Hopefully, this will be a better winter for our winter-crop growers, Johns said. I certainly hope and pray it is. Extension agent Jim DeValerio recognized farmers Fred and Julia Pendarvis at the luncheons start. He motioned to a table that displayed numerous plaques that have been awarded to the couple for the strawberries theyve entered at the Bradford County Fair as well as in recognition of their support for youth in organizations like 4-H. DeValerio said, When you go out to their farm, and you ask them for something, they say, Oh, we wouldnt charge for it. Is it for the youth? Well give it to you. Just go to the cooler and get it when you need it. DeValerio presented the couple with a commemorative mug and a gift certificate at the events conclusion. As with every Farm-City luncheon, a member of FFA recites the FFA creed. This year, the honor went to Xander Vanzant: I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words, but of deeds achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years. I believe to live and work on a good farm is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even through hours of discouragement, I cannot deny. I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil. I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me. I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task. 6B Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 (Dunnellons) not going to quit. We fought hard the entire game. Indeed. All Bradford did was answer with a 69-yard scoring drive to go up by 10. Barber, who had a 24-yard run to put the Tornadoes in Dunnellon territory, completed a 35-yard touchdown pass to Davis, who was behind the secondary and grabbed the ball in the end zone with 8:24 to play in the third quarter. Barbers PAT put Bradford up 24-14. Davis caught four passes in all for 74 yards. The Tigers drove inside the Bradford 5 on a possession that began at the Bradford 41. Williams and Jaquon Edwards each had a 9-yard run to help set up first-and-goal at the 8. Williams had a 3-yard run that put the Tigers at the 3, but Smith then dropped Williams for a 2-yard loss on third down. Lees pass to Goolsby in the end zone on fourth down was incomplete, with Taro Ward providing the coverage. Goolsby, a University of Florida commit, was held to three receptions for 12 yards. Dunnellon had another drive that began on Bradfords side of the 50, with a pass-interference penalty giving the Tigers a first down at the 15. Jaquon Edwards had a 7-yard run to set up firstand-goal at the 4, but Edwards then fumbled the ball on the next play, with Bradfords Smith recovering at the 5. I just took it out of his hands, Smith said. Bradfords offense consumed almost five minutes off the clock before punting. Davis and Trace Barber tackled punt returner Patterson at his own 2, but a personal-foul penalty on the Tornadoes moved the ball to the 17. Patterson caught a tipped pass for a 35-yard gain to the Bradford 48, but Chris Cummings broke up a pass on the following play. Mosley and Smith then tackled Jaquon Edwards for a 2-yard gain. An incomplete pass set up fourth-and-8. The Tigers were flagged for illegal procedure before Lee, under heavy pressure from Taz Curry, threw another incompletion for a turnover on downs. With 3:38 to play, Barber picked up a first down on a 15yard run. Then, after he exited the game due to cramping, Davis stepped in at quarterback, picking up two more first downs on runs of 5 and 10 yards, allowing the Tornadoes to line up in victory formation. Tomlinson couldnt say enough about his teams effort. This is a testament to what they do, he said. This is what we get from them week in and week out. Theyre a heck of a ball club. A team that entered the season with a new head coach and staff and lost several players from last season who transferred to other schools has now won 10 straight after a season-opening loss and is one more win away from playing for a state title. Its amazing, Smith said. Weve worked so hard for this, ever since spring. All our other coaches left. Some of our players left. Our teammates that stuck around, we did it. Raines, the number-one seed in Region 1, set up the Nov. 24 matchup with a 57-15 win over West Nassau, a team the Tornadoes beat 48-21 in the regular season.

Nistler said she had one female turkey that was sitting on eggs and refused to move when confronted by dogs. Chickens, if something comes up, they are in the highest corners in the rafters, keeping away from something, Nistler said. The turkeys wont do that. Chickens are also easier to corral and put back into their pens, Nistler, said, explaining that trying to get the turkeys back into their enclosures is like herding cats. The turkeys, though, are fun to have around. I just love having them on the property, Nistler said. Theyre so funny. Nistler described an incident in which one of her roosters, who was acting up, was put into his place by some of her turkey hens. They all ganged up on him, she said. He was putting his feathers up, but they all sent him running. All I saw was his little head down, running away. Those hens told him what to do. Nistler said the turkeys have personalities and are attached to her. They do imprint, so theyve imprinted on me, she said. Im their mama. The turkeys begin making noise when they see Nistler drive up in her car. They follow her around the yard and seem to talk to her as well. During the interview for this story, Nistler demonstrated by going, Chuk chuk chuk chuk, which prompted all the turkeys to gobble in response. They actually like to be around humans, Nistler said. Theyre very social animals. So, is it tough to have that kind of relationship with animals that are eventually going to wind up on dinner plates? Nistler admitted it can be, but its something shes at peace with, having grown up on a farm. At the age of 5, she began learning the importance of raising animals to provide food for her family and others. Its sad, but thats the circle of life, she said. We provide a service, a pretty valuable service as far as Im concerned. Nistler said she does make it a point to give her turkeys the best care possible. We try to be very respectful, she said. We try very hard to treat our animals well make sure they have plenty of feed and shelter and that when we do process them, its very humane. We try to be as gentle as we can in the process. A successful first year has Nistler turning her thoughts to the future. Shes considering going solely with the Bourbon Red breed of heritage turkey, which she describes as so pretty, and has to also think about replacing her production birds the ones that provide the eggs. The turkeys tend to live four to five years. Nistler is also ready to expand her business. My idea for next year is to try to have them in two separate cages one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. TURKEYS Continued from 1B StarkeJournal.com
BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer One Bradford High School baseball player has a win before the season has even begun as senior Tucker Stack accepted a scholarship from St. Johns River State College. Its unreal, Stack said following a Nov. 13 signing ceremony. Its something Ive worked my whole life for. Its a blessing. Stack said it was easy to settle on St. Johns River as the school for him. When I went there and took a visit, I just felt like I was at home, he said. They welcomed me with open arms. Its just the best place for me to go. He can play in the infield, but Stack will go to St. Johns River as a pitcher. He had 80 strikeouts in 60 innings the last two seasons. I always wanted to be a position player like first base, Stack said, but colleges started looking at me from a pitching standpoint. I thought that was the best bet. Cory Elasik, a St. Johns River assistant coach, said Stack sticks out as a left-hander who can get leftand right-handed batters out. His fastball is what stands out, Elasik said. Its got a lot of run and sink. Its got late life. It really gets up on you. He hides the ball really well. Elasik said a pitch Stack needs to develop is a slider. In order to get left-handers and right-handers out, hes got to have a three-pitch mix, Elasik said. His fastball and changeup are where they need to be, but the sliders something that needs to get better. He throws more of a traditional curveball. We want to tighten it up with a slider or a cutter. I think with his work ethic and how he attacks everything, hell have problem adjusting to it. St. Johns River would seem to be a good option for a pitcher looking to develop. Elasik said pitchers from the program have gone on to four-year schools such as Coastal Carolina and any ACC or SEC school you can name. We had a pitcher last year selected in the fourth round of the draft who was committed to Mississippi State, Elasik said. He ended up signing for $560,000. Pitching is something were known for. Developing arms is something were known for. For his part, Stack is willing to work not just on developing a certain pitch, but on his overall game. He knows hell be playing against better-overall athletes in college than in high school. Im really going to have to step my game up and work hard in the offseason, Stack said. Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan said he expects Stack will have to develop physically and get a little stronger as well. He already has the arm strength, though. He can go right now, Duncan said. He can go seven innings for you. Duncan said Stack has a bulldog-type attitude and is a fierce competitor. What hes added in recent years is the ability to not let his competitiveness prevent him from overcoming adversity. Duncan said there was a time when things didnt go right, hed have to pull Stack out of the game. Hes grown to be able to deal with failure, Duncan said. Hes learned how to handle that, and hes learned how to overcome it. Stack brings more to the table than athletic ability. Elasik said his school wants to bring in student-athletes of high character. Duncan described Stack as respectable and the poster boy for what St. Johns River is looking for. Hes a kid who works extremely hard both athletically and academically, Elasik said. Hes a kid I can put my name on, who I can trust to do the right things. Hes accountable. He represents his familys name in a 8B Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 rfnt KeYsToNe InDiAnS vS. WiLdWoOd WiLdCaTs UnIoN CoUnTy TiGeRs vS.
