The City of Keystone Heights Heritage Commission will present a free workshop on Saturday March 10 at 10 a.m. at City Hall. The session is open to the public but will be of particular interest to owners of homes and commercial buildings more than 50 years old, within the city limits. The workshop will include a discussion of the Heritage Commissions ongoing Building Plaque Program that promotes awareness and appreciation of homes and buildings in Keystone that have historical or architectural value. Clay County Archivest, Vishi Garig, will discuss techniques on researching public records about older properties. Members of the Keystone Heights Heritage Commission will host the workshop and be available to answer questions. The attractive keystone-shaped wooden plaques seen about town on older homes and the Beach Pavilion show that the property owners have pride in, and an understanding of Keystones past. Those owners want to preserve Keystones architectural history for future generations. A plaque on a home or commercial building may have a positive impact on a propertys value to those interested in, and appreciative of, older wellmaintained properties. To qualify to have a home or building receive a plaque from the Heritage Commission, the property owner must complete an application, at no cost to apply, and include historical and architectural data about the property. The application is scored by the commission using certain criteria, which will be discussed at the workshop. To assist the property owner in completing an application, the workshop will include an overview of research resources and tips, and the plaquing guidelines. Attending the workshop will not obligate a property owner to apply for a plaque. A plaque on a property does not create any additional regulation or red tape by the city. The cost of the plaque itself is nominal and may be underwritten by the commission based on funds availability. For more information, please call LaDonna Hart, chair of the Heritage Commission at 352-281-8237. Sexual offender legally lives near school promotes during Lenten Managing Editor During the February meeting of Neighborhood Engagement Team, Chief Kenneth Stivers explained to the group why a registered sexual offender is allowed to live across Grove Street from Keystone Heights High School. The Sheriffs Neighborhood Engagement Team is a group of citizens that meets with a sheriffs to discuss community law enforcement concerns. Anyone may apply, and applicants must undergo a background check. Stivers told the group, meeting at the Keystone Heights City Hall, that someone recently complained about the offenders residency, and Mayor Karen Lake added that she originally received the complaint, then forwarded it to the sheriffs Sterl G. Williams, 44, was convicted in Marion County of lewd and lascivious battery on a victim between 11 and 16 years of age. Stivers explained that when the 2004 session of the Florida legislature passed the prohibition of certain sexual offenders living within 1,000 feet of a school, lawmakers did not make the provision retroactive. Since Williams committed his offense before Oct. 1, 2004, the prohibition does not apply to him and he may live anywhere he wants. Stivers then explained the sheriffs procedures for tracking registered sexual offenders, adding that the person within of tracking such people knows where all the countys offenders live. Offenders are required to register within 48 hours of release and failure to do so is a felony. We are required by law, to go by their houses and verify that they live (where they are registered), Stivers said. The sheriff has mandated that we do that at least twice a year. Stivers added that road deputies are given a list every month of registered sex offenders they are to visit and verify residency. The ID lists the person as a sexual offender.

Travelers either (1) run home to what they consider the comfort of home and actively or passively oppose change because they truly desire that things remain in a holding pattern here; (2) stroll home to what they accept unchallenged in order to stay in a boat that rarely rocks because its sitting on a stagnant pond; or (3) limp home dragging their feet and tail behind them, kicking and screaming, because Gods plan for them, circumstances or fate (dependent on your belief system) have forced them back when they knew how Starke was, know how Starke is and cringe at how Starke will be if we-as citizens of Starke, Bradford County, the United States of America and Planet Earth-do not truly begin or intensify our efforts to love our neighbors AS OURSELVES. The Beatles sang it like this, All you need is love. Love is all you need. Bob Marley and holy Armageddon (one love). So when the man comes there will be no doom (one song). Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner. There aint no hiding place from the father of creation. Sayin one love, one heart, lets get together and feel all right. Im pleading to mankind (one love), Oh Lord (one heart). Give thanks and praise to the lord, and I will feel all right. Lets get together and feel all right. Countless others have sung, crooned, written and preached these sentiments, but perhaps one of the hardest things to do is to actually put anothers needs before ones own: To love like God loved us when He gave His save a planet full of folks who refuse to love anyone as much as they love themselves. All those folks have to do is simply believe given and admit it is not just the other guy or girl, man or woman, whose dirty deeds need to be forgiven but their own issues that also need to be pardoned. You may have learned the Golden Rule of Do unto others as you would have them do unto you or you might know it as Jesus dumbing down of Old Testament law in Matthew 22 for a group of Sadducees and Pharisees (scholars of Old Testament law) who constantly trailed him attempting to trip him up so they could discredit him. (Unable to do so, they later arrested him on trumped-up him.) A Pharisee baited Jesus with the following question in greatest commandment in the law? And Jesus responded in his usual down-to-earth, wise, direct manner: . . Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with greatest commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Having been born the last year babies were delivered at the I have lived in Starke much of my life. I have returned here as a traveler in all three categories at various points in my life and have lived in locales as far away as Nigeria, West Africa. Between the ages of 1 and 12, my family moved around the state of Florida a good bit, but we always returned to Starke to visit family. At that stage of my life, as with most children and adolescents, I fell into Category 1 of travelers returning to Starke. I saw Starke as somewhere I always wanted to be and never looked any deeper than the surface to see or care what lay beneath it. We moved back to Starke when I began seventh grade, and I graduated from Bradford High School in 1983. As I moved into high school, it did not take me long to slip into Category 2 in which I began to realize that there was a whole wide world outside our city limits that many of the residents had no interest in understanding, welcoming or embracing. In fact, those same residents did not do that great a job reaching out to and certainly not toward loving those within the city limits. Soon afterward, another sad realization hit me: Many grown people who had supposedly been taught the same lessons I had and who said they held the same values I did really did not even care about anyone outside their inner circle of family and friends. Some of these adults I even saw in church every Sunday. That is when I moved into Category 3 where I have remained until I began typing today. All I ever wanted to do was to live far, far away from Starke. The shorter my visit home, the better. Sometimes, if it had been long enough between visits and the visit was short enough, I could even revive the feelings I had in Category 1 when I thought Starke was a golden place. Today, I have resolved to put letter to the editor might bring a glimmer of hope to all who need love, a reminder to those who need to love more and a wakeup call to those who have never loved before. I am writing from the perspective of an enlightened (perhaps toolightened) adult because, as the Apostle Paul writes in the eleventh verse of 1 Corinthians 13, the Bibles LOVE chapter, When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man [in my case, a woman], I put away childish things. Earlier I was involved in a conversation that left me with a sick, powerless feeling, and keyboard, praying that once again the pen that is mightier than the sword will express thoughts I probably should have expressed years earlier in the hopes that new life might still break through the stagnant surface of this town and reach up, embracing positive light of a new day not cling to the darkness of what used to be and cannot be changed. Time and again, I have seen people with wonderful intentions present beautiful, constructive ideas for this community only to be shot down in their tracks. Outsiders, whether they have lived in Starke for 100 days or 100 years, are still blackballed because they are not from around here. Meanwhile, other smallindividuals whose ideas are only going to line their pockets and add to their own earthly kingdoms are promoted, praised and supported. Blind eyes are turned to wrongdoing; special allowances are made for undeserving people; and businesses that do nothing but promote the demise of entire neighborhoods, increase criminal activity and keep addicts in bondage to drugs, alcohol, gambling, overspending, etc. are endorsed. Where is the love in that? When will this brand of smalltown politics end? Will the light of a new day dawn for this community or will we simply sink to the bottom of this stagnant pond? In closing, I return to verses 1-3 of the LOVE chapter, 1 Corinthians 13: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity [love], I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity [love], I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not nothing.

Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Merle Norman returning to Starke Southern Roots bringing legendary brand back to downtown Downtown Starkes newest salon is bringing back a former downtown icon that has been absent for years. On March 17, Southern Roots will begin offering Merle Norman cosmetics and skin care products. Bringing back the iconic brand is something Southern Roots owner Shana Davis Sapp has been working on since opening the salon in July. Shana grew up in her grandmothers salon: Gladyss Beauty Salon. For around 45 years, Gladys Williamson styled hair on S.R. 21, just north of where American Legion Post 202 is located now. Shana operated her own nail salon in Gainesville for 11 years before starting an 18-year-career at Clay Electric. Last year, Shana returned to the profession with which she grew up and found the perfect venue to launch the next stage of her life. A vintage building at the corner of Starkes Call and Thompson streets, which formally housed the Strawberry Shana the opportunity to restore a historic part of downtown, and craft the open and welcoming atmosphere she wants to convey. I came in and took out everything, she said. New wiring, ceilings, plumbing, electrical. Its made a huge difference, and I love old buildings. I wanted it to be open, warm and inviting, she said of her new enterprise. When you walk into a salon, you not only want to walk out looking great, you want to walk in and enjoy the atmosphere and the company of the person that is doing your hair, nails or makeup. Shana added that the name of the studio: Southern Roots came from the same idea down home, and an inviting and welcoming southern atmosphere. She said the name and the look of the studio accurately captures the same welcoming manner she remembers from her grandmothers salon in Keystone Heights. I love it, she said. I love the people. I love the relaxing environment. I love making people feel good about themselves. Southern Roots specializes in hair, nails, eyebrow waxing, ear piercing and, of course, skin care, facials and makeup with the arrival of Merle Norman on March 17. Were really excited about getting it back, she said. Skin care is a really big thing to me. There are a lot of skin care products out there, but there are not a lot that have been around 85 years. I used Merle Norman in high school. Their skin care products are, bar none, the best skin care available. Plus, its something that you can get here, she added. You dont have to order it, you dont have to drive 30 miles to get it and its not a go-into-yourhome-and-sell-it kind of thing. Shana has six associates that help her deliver the down-home charm and knockout looks to women and men across North Florida. They are: Marlissa Rosier-Hales who is from Starke. Marlissa attended the Aveda Hair School in Jacksonville. Hair stylist Alexis Mowat attended the North Florida Technical College (formally known as the Bradford-Union Technical Center). Trevor Shuman is a hair stylist with 25 years of experience. He is from Jacksonville. Kayla Holsenbeck is a hair stylist from Starke. is a nail tech and makeup consultant from Keystone Heights. Michaela Marshall is from Gainesville. She is the studio manager and makeup consultant.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY For a guest of honor, Kali Parker didnt have much to say, but words werent really necessary. Parkers actions did all the talking.

Aundre Carter Keystone softball downs Bradford and Trenton to BY BRANDON LUDWIG After wins over PK Yonge, Palatka, and Newberry, the Keystone Heights High School Indians returned home this past Thursday to face rival and district opponent Bradford, in what became a game with high stakes. After Bradford defeated Santa Fe last Tuesday, a win by Keystone over the Tornadoes would help the team move into seed in Class 5A-District 5. and forth early, with both teams bringing the heat against each other and would remain a close game as late as the top of the fourth inning, when Keystone was only up 5-4. Heading into the bottom of the fourth, the Indians had an singles from Bailey Story, Skylar Rollins, and Molly Crawford bringing in runs, along with two runs brought in from a groundout from Ashton Ludwig and a double by Cami Worley, to give Keystone a 10-4 lead that they would not relinquish. The Indians would go on to score four more runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to Tornadoes. Friday night, Keystone showdown of the week, against Trenton; a team which had been undefeated at the time of their matchup. The Indians scored Molly Crawford, which brought in Ashleigh Jennings during the looked back. While Trenton fully loaded the bases on two different occasions, they managed to only score two runs during the game, thanks to the Indian defense. The winning effort was made possible as well by pitcher Daelynn Eatmon, who shined on the mound for Keystone, with four strikeouts and no earned runs against her. Keystone would hold on for the win 4-2 over extending the Indians winning streak to eight games. Keystone has had a busy schedule this week as well; they began the week by facing district opponent Fort White in the Indian Showdown on Tuesday (score not available by press time). Theyll face two more district opponents this week, traveling on the road on Thursday night to face the Palatka Panthers at 7 PM, before returning home this Friday night for a big game against Santa Fe High School (Alachua) at 7 p.m. These two matchups, especially the second matchup against the Raiders, will play a crucial role in determining district seeding for Keystone, Bradford, and other local teams for the postseason. Right: Kali Parker discovers David Kniseleys fez is a little too large.
dont you, referring to the familiar fezzes worn by Shriners. Kniseley then placed his fez atop Kalis head and had her pose for a photo. Then she was off to resume playing with the other children who were present. The only way youd know she was different from those other children was by noticing the braces on her legs. Otherwise, you probably wouldnt have guessed that shes paralyzed in both of her legs below the knees. diagnosis with results Kali Parkers parents were aware she was going to have potential problems before she was born. She was diagnosed as having lipomyelomeningocele, which is a fatty tumor as the The one lucky thing Kali had when she was born her tumor was closed, Todd Parker said. A lot of them are open. When theyre open, they get immediate nerve damage from the oxygen in the air. Kali still had to undergo spinal-cord surgery, but it wasnt performed immediately after birth. She had surgery when she was 4 months old. It was also at that time that she was diagnosed with clubfoot, which affected both of her feet. We imagined shed be in a wheelchair, Parker said. Kali was put into braces that left her legs in bloody blisters. Kelly Donn said her daughters legs wouldnt stop bleeding unless pressure was applied to them. They were horrible, Donn said of the braces. I was like, something else. Something else turned out to be a trip the Shriners Hospital for Children in Tampa. Parker said he was aware of the hospital because of Jacksonville friends who are Shriners. Donn said the idea to go came from talking with Kalis pediatrician about other options. Parker said the doctor the family talked to at the hospital made it sound like treating Kalis condition was no big deal at all. The doctor said, Ill have her walking. Dont worry about it. It was a far cry from what Kalis parents had been hearing. Donn said they were told Kalis surgery would take three hours, but it actually took less than an hour. She and Parker were amazed when Kali was attempting to stand on her feet that night after her surgery. It was about three months after her surgery, she started walking, Donn said. We came in from physical therapy one day, and I sat her by her toy box. I looked over. The next thing I knew, she was gone. Never stopped since. Parker said when he comes across people looking for worthwhile organizations to donate money to, he speaks up for Shriners Hospitals for Children. I will do anything for them, Parker said. Changing lives A brochure for Shriners Hospitals for Children includes the following: Where hope and healing meet, compassion and expertise come together, and lives are changed. Tampa is one of 22 Shriners Hospital locations throughout North America. The Tampa hospital specializes in orthopedic care. Perhaps just as impressive as the quality of care is the atmosphere. Noble Scribe Ted Barber of the Starke Shrine Club took a tour of the hospital in Tampa, saying, The children are having a ball. They want to come back. Its not like a normal hospital where you want to get away from it. Barber described the friendliness of the staff as unbelievable and said he was impressed that the doors to the rooms dont have numbers. Instead, they bear pictures of different animals. I thought that was a fantastic thing, that the children were able to identify their room not by a number, but by an animal of some sort, Barber said. Past Potentate Frank Cruce said the reason he became a Shriner was to help children. Touring the hospital in Tampa was a touching experience. If you ever tour it, youll remember it from that point on, Cruce said. If you dont walk out with tears, theres something wrong with you. Ive been probably 20 times or more. Hospitals helps children with burns, spinal-cord injuries and cleft lip and palate as well, with each hospital specializing in an area. For example, the hospital in Philadelphia specializes in spinal-cord injuries. Barber said a youth in Lake Butler who fell off a roof and became paralyzed received care at that hospital. Cruce said he didnt know how many children in this area have received care at the hospital in Tampa, but we do have a lot thats been there. Shriners Hospitals provide care free of charge, relying on the generosity of donors. Collections for care The Shrine Club of Starke does its part to support Shriners Hospitals for Children by holding what Shriners call paper drives at least twice a year. Paper drives are where Shriners stand at road intersections and collect money. Such efforts help Shriners Hospitals for Children provide care free of charge. When people give, they can understand that 100 percent of it goes to the hospital, Starke Noble Past President Scott Roberts said, adding, It goes straight to the hospital to help these kids get the best treatment in the world free. Its really quite remarkable. Approximately 85 percent of Shriners Hospitals operating budget is spent in direct support of the organizations three-part mission: patient care, research and education. Usually, the credibility is very high because Shriners have always done what they said they would do, Roberts said. Seeing those men in fezzes out at the intersection of U.S. 301 and S.R. 100 prompts so many people to make a donation and oftentimes share stories about family members or friends who received care at Shriners Hospitals. Its not like were having to pull money out of these people, Roberts said. So many people just roll their window down and want to give right away. Kniseley said though its not always easy for them to get the money to the Shriners at ground level, so many drivers of tractor-trailers want to give, too. Kniseley joked, Theyll attach it to a rock and throw it at us. trailer drivers are generous, which makes the long walk from the front of a semi to the next vehicle in line worth it. I got a $100 bill from a semi I got so excited. For more information on Shriners Hospitals for Children, please visit shrinershospitalsforchildren. org.
