BY KIM BOX Special to the Monitor About 450 attendees and volunteers gathered March 1 at Salvation Army Camp Keystone for the Eighth Annual Banquet of the Answers Health & Resource Facility. Joanna Weldon described 2017 as a whirlwind in which Answers saw God take them from vision to reality as their second location in Starke opened its doors last month. Attendees were seated at tables individually decorated by volunteers. Gabby Fraser, a Northside Christian Academy student, hosted and decorated one of the tables. Frasers table featured two inspirational verses--one framed verse read, There is always something to be thankful for, and another verse was written on a cross and read, Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10). The verses were complimented by candlelight, scattered stones and several varieties of potted cacti. I wanted to do it last year, but I didnt have the resources, Fraser said. I saved up, so I could host a table this year. Another tables centerpiece was a mound of dirt framed by beans and colored beads. The mound was topped with a few green sprouts and the words, COR 3:6-7, spelled out in beans. That verse says, I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. Ken Weaver, the only male member of the Answers board of directors and bi-vocational pastor of LifeSpring Church, welcomed everyone. He offered a prayer of thanksgiving before dinner was served. God has done far more than we have asked or imagined, Weaver said. The Steakhouse in Starke catered a dinner served by youth volunteers from area church youth groups and the Key Club. Other youth volunteers served as parking lot attendants. The meal consisted of salad, chicken USPS 114-170 Keystone Heights, Florida Thursday, March 15, 2018 44 th Year 45 th Issue 75 CENTS Lake Region Monitor Lake Region Monitor Deadline Monday 5 p.m. before publication 904-964-6305 904-964-8628 Two Keystone Heights High School students were arrested last week for writing threats to the school.

Trenton Andrew Edsall, 15, of Keystone Heights, was arrested Wednesday March 7 by Clay deputies for vandalism (over $200 and under $1,000), making in a violent manner and written threats to kill or do bodily injury. According to the arrest report, Clay Deputy R.E. Lee, while working in his capacity at Keystone Heights High School, was approached by ninth-grade student Edsall who told him someone was writing a threatening message on the ceiling of the boys restroom. He initially reported it to be a white male, approximately 5 tall with blonde hair, wearing light red shorts and a black t-shirt standing on the sink counter, writing a message on the ceiling. Lee, Sgt. John Parker and Vice Principal Barry Underwood relocated to the restroom with the suspect and observed the message, which read as follows: Im going to shoot the school a smiley face. The suspect provided a sworn written statement of what he said he had seen. After a few minutes of speaking to the suspect, a family member arrived to take the suspect home and was informed of the incident and the investigators suspicion that the suspect had actually written the message himself. The family member asked to speak with the boy privately. After she talked to the student, she spoke to with law Edsall was then read his rights and agreed to answer questions.

Austin Steven Gilliland, 24, was arrested March 11 in Keystone Heights by Clay get appropriations from legislature BY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor The Florida Legislatures budget, which passed last Sunday includes $25 million for Keystone lakes and St. Johns River restoration, in addition to $1.6 million for expanding the Camp Blanding Museum. Gov. Rick Scott now has 30 days to sign or veto the entire budget. He also has the power to veto individual line items in the spending plan. Keystone Heights lakes The legislature approved $25 million in spending for the St. Johns River and Keystone Heights-area lakes. Last year, lawmakers approved a similar $13 million budget item. Much of that money went to the Black Creek Water Resource Development Project: which when completed will capture up to 10 million gallons of water a day from the south fork of Black Creek and pipe it south of Magnolia Lake, within Camp Blanding. Supporters of the plan said the project will replenish Alligator Creek and the Keystone lakes, along with recharging the Upper Floridan Aquifer. The project is being managed by the St. Johns River Water Management District. Col. Matt Johnson, Commander of the Camp Blanding Joint Training Facility, said that the Florida Armory Board recently approved an easement for the project, allowing the water management district to lay pipe on the military installations property, adjacent to State Road 21, and build a Lake Magnolia. The project has been championed by Rep. Bobby Payne and Sen. Rob Bradley. Last year, Bradley was chairman of the Senates Appropriations Subcommittee on the Environment and Natural Resources. In November, Senate President Joe Negron appointed Bradley as chair of the Appropriations Committee. Bradley represents Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Lafayette, Levy, Suwannee, Union counties and part of Marion county.

Williams explained how he grew up a welfare kid, street kid, Southside kid from Chicago. His mom gave him to the mailman while he was still in her womb. She said she chose the mailman because he was the only Christian man she ever knew. She made that determination because the mailman told everyone on his route, God bless you. The mailman told her that his daughter and son-in-law would love to have her child. They had tried to have a child and prayed for one for 12 years. Im a rescue kid, Williams said. Williams and his wife rescued their own son from the same situation. He was a teeny-tiny, asthmatic 8-month-old when he came to them. Williams said most moms in these situations never had a good mom themselves, so they do not know how to be a mom. Answers has answers for them, said Williams. He knows because his sons biological mom went through the Earn While You Learn classes. She came to a personal faith in Jesus Christ. She then joined the military. The Sisters of Mercy convinced her to trust God to turn trial into triumph. She was a chaplains assistant in the military, and shes a nurse now. She even leads childrens church at her church. He closed by saying that his son was recently involved in a Days for Life campaign. For 40 days, outside abortion centers, groups pray. His son went every day for 40 days. He asked his dad to come with him on the last day because they were going to form a prayer chain and pray that God would take down the abortion center. My son is a tough boy and does not cry, Williams said. He saw two large containers labeled Medical Waste behind the center. He said, Daddy, that was what Mom was going to do to me. But God had a better plan for me. Williams said, Im here to say thank you for all those children who will hear Happy Birthday. You are the childrens heroes. Joanna and team, were the foundation behind you, Williams said. We want to save the children.

Man accused of abusing elderly person Union County Timothy Marc Knowles, 48, of Lake Butler, was arrested March 9 by Union deputies on a warrant for crimes against person abuse of an elderly or disabled adult without great harm, stemming from a Feb. 21 report. The offense report states that in February, Union Deputy Phillip Sellers responded to an address in Lake Butler to meet DCF Investigator Stephen Shaw in reference to a report of a disabled adult being abused. Contact was made with the alleged victim, his mother and the victims grandparents. Once inside the residence the mother was advised about the reason for the visit and informed that DCF had received a report stating that her friend, Knowles, who also resides in the residence, had been verbally and physically abusing the victim frequently yelling at him and slapping him on the back of his head and on his chest. The report also alleges that, on one occasion, the suspect placed a shirt around the victims neck and choked him. The victims mother denied any abuse, saying that, due to the victims Downs Syndrome, it was necessary to yell at him and tap him on the chest to get him to listen. She was advised that Shaw and Seller needed to speak with the victim alone and she exited the room to her bedroom and shut the door. When asked about what had been reported, the victim began to demonstrate slapping motions toward the back of his head and the upper part of his chest. He said Knowles was mean to him and yells at him. When asked about the choking incident, the victim put his hand around his neck and made squeezing motions. He then said, He choked me until I went to sleep. The victim was unable to tell when these incidents occurred because, the report stated, he did not understand the concept of time. Contact with Knowles was not made at that time and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Man arrested 40 bags of garbage on road Union County Joshua Paul Westinghouse, 33, of Lake Butler was arrested March 10 by Union deputies on a warrant for illegal dumping over 500 pounds. The warrant stemmed from an incident on Jan. 7 when Deputy Erik Krueger responded to a report of illegal dumping in the area of C.R.231A and C.R. 18. The complaint stated that there were 40 to 50 bags of garbage lying in the roadway and to the side of it. When Krueger arrived in the area he observed a pick-up truck with a bed full of garbage bags. James Tallman was present at the scene and was attempting to clean up the roadway. He reported to Krueger that he had found two prescription bottles with the name Christina Simmons on them. Another witness said he had also found garbage on the road with her name on it, as did the deputy. Krueger made contact with Simmons and Joshua Westinghouse at their home and advised them of the reason for the contact. Westinghouse stated that he had taken the garbage to the dump and that a couple of the bags had fallen out of the truck. He said he did not stop to pick them up and just kept going. According to his report, Krueger stated that the bags he saw did not appear to have fallen off a moving vehicle, given the fact that several of the bags were seen up against a fence line about 25 feet from the roadside. Videos taken by bystanders showed bags thrown by the roadside, bag after bag until a bridge was approached and the bags stop, then are seen on the roadside again past the bridge. On Jan. 9 contact was made with two minors at their residence with their mother, Christine Simmons, present. Both of them freely admitted to throwing the garbage on the roadside. They said they had originally tried to take the garbage to the Worthington Springs collection site but were turned away because of the large number of bags. They said that Westinghouse told them he would not be returning to the residence with the bags and they were told to ride on the trailer as he drove. They said he yelled at them to throw the bags on the roadside. They said Westinghouse would yell and wave his arm when cars were coming so they could get down and hide in the trailer. Westinghouse was contacted and told an interview needed to be conducted with him in reference to the case. He admitted that a few bags had fallen off the trailer and it was his mistake not to stop and pick them up. He then agreed to give a voluntary statement and said he would contact the sheriffs later that evening. As of Jan. 11, Westinghouse had failed to make as agreed. Baby during drug bust. Mom neglect Union County Chelsea Margaret Williams, 24, of Palatka, was arrested March 8 by Union Deputy Phillip Sellers for child neglect (without great harm), possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of marijuana not more than 20 grams and possession of narcotics equipment. The arrest report states that Sellers responded to the area of Northeast S.R. 121 and Northeast S.R.16 in reference to a report of a reckless vehicle. The vehicle had been reported to be driving erratically and to have driven off the road several times. As Sellers was passing the Raiford complainant, who pointed out a vehicle just departing the parking lot of the convenience store next had called about. Sellers followed the vehicle to try and establish a driving pattern. He observed instances of erratic driving and initiated with the driver, Williams, and noted that she seemed distracted and confused and was having trouble staying focused on the questions he was asking her. In the report he stated that, based on his training and experience, he believed she was under substance. Deputy Jason Lepanto arrived at the scene to assist and Sellers informed him of his observations. Lepanto noticed a baby behind the drivers seat in a car seat. It is stated that neither deputy had noticed the baby before, due at least in part to what is described as the total disarray of the vehicles interior and the fact that the child and car seat were completely covered with a blanket. Laying against the car seat was an unsecured tire. There was also a push lawnmower and a gas container in the back seat, along with various items of dirty clothing. When Williams was asked if there were any illegal items in the vehicle she stated that there were not, and she gave her consent to search the vehicle. She was asked to exit the vehicle to speak with Lepanto while Seller searched. Sellers discovered a plastic bag with a green leafy substance in the left cup holder, which he suspected to be marijuana and appeared to be less than one gram. He also found a marijuana cigarette butt in the bag. On the front seat was a black purse which Williams claimed was hers. In it Sellers found a rubber pill container with half of a white pill inside. The pill could not found was an empty prescription bottle in Williams name for Buprenorphine (a generic for Subtex). There were also several used syringes found in the purse. After collecting all of the items, Sellers took them to his vehicle and placed them in an evidence bag. Upon seeing him with the container, Williams said the half-pill inside it was Subtex and advised she was diabetic and had a prescription for the drug. Lepanto removed the baby from Williams car and placed it in his patrol car. He then transported the child to the Union made contact with DCF. It is noted in the report that the childs clothing, and the blankets used to cover her, were extremely dirty. Williams was advised she was under arrest for the listed charges.

Aaron Rubin Harris, 23, of Lake Butler was arrested March 9 by Union deputies for possession of marijuana (under 20 grams) and three counts of possession of narcotics equipment. According to the arrest report, the suspect was driving a car north on C.R. 231 and was clocked by Deputy P. Sellers and Reserve Deputy S. Ellis at 23 miles-per-hour over the posted speed limit. As the vehicle approached, Sellers turned on his blue lights in an attempt to get the vehicle to stop, but it did not and continued north, then crossed the yellow line, slowed down and of C.R.231 and C.R.231A. Deputies approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver. When he rolled down his window, smoke billowed out that Sellers recognized through his experience as being from burnt marijuana. Harris was asked to exit the vehicle and was patted down for weapons. When asked by Sellers where the marijuana was, he said it was in a bag in the back seat and said there was also a .45 caliber hand gun in the car with a round in the chamber. Both items were recovered, and the gun was unloaded for safety reasons. Inside the bag in the back seat were numerous items of drug paraphernalia, including a grinder, two sets of scales, a glass pipe with marijuana resin, a black plastic cylinder that contained bags of marijuana weighing 1.5 and 2.4 grams and a wooden box known as a Kief Box that is used to store marijuana and catch THC particles that fall to the bottom for a more potent effect when smoked. The scrapings from the box weighed approximately 1.1 grams. A full bottle of Hennessey cognac was found under the passenger seat of the car, accessible to the driver. In addition to the drug related charges, the suspect was also issued a speeding citation and a citation for open container.

I am convinced that God provided way back in 1977 to get the steakhouse built. We nally opened on January 16, 1979. Words can't really describe the blessing of being part of the community and in each of your lives. It would take me a lifetime to say thank you. About three years ago, the Lord spoke to me about closing on Sundays. I have resisted his will until now. So, March 25 will be the last Sunday the Steakhouse in Starke will be open. Of course, we will remain open Monday through Saturday every week. I fought this decision, and as a result myself and others have su#ered because of my disobedience. I would like to express more, but, su$ ce to say if you would like the full story, please feel free to contact me. So many events have happened recently that have emphasized to me that this is the Lord's will! !"#$%&'#(#)$*'+#,,-'+#./"0,1 The following devotion further expresses my feelings in regard to this matter. Testing reveals your heart "Remember that the Lord your God led you on the entire journey these 40 years in the wilderness, so that He might humble you and test you to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep His commands. He humbled you by letting you go hungry; then He gave you manna to eat, which you and your fathers had not known, so that you might learn that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord." Deuteronomy 8:2-3. God allows us to su#er di$ culties and hardships for a purpose. God led the children of Israel to wonder through the wilderness for 40 years in order to humble them and test them. When they refused to obey him and enter the Promised Land, the Israelites revealed that they did not really know Him. If they had, they would have had more faith. God spent the next 40 years testing the hearts of His people to see if they were prepared for his next assignment. Testing reveals what is in your heart and produces a robust faith (James 1:3, 12). God allowed His people to hunger so they could experience His provision and develop a deeper level of trust in Him. As the people walked with God they came to understand that their lives depended upon His word. !ey learned that God's word was the most important thing they had. A%er depending on God for 40 years while living in the desert, the people listened when God spoke, and they believed. When they nally entered the Promised Land and waged war against their enemies, the Israelites knew that God's word meant life or death. !ey were prepared to listen to him, and as a result he led them to an astounding victory. Is God presently testing you in some area of your life? What has His testing revealed? Have you become bitter toward God because of where he has led you? Or have you come to trust Him more as a result of what you have gone through? Drew Bell's kindergarten class at Brooker Elementary School earned best in show in horticulture for a dracaena.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY During the fourth night of the Bradford County Fair, manager Dale Woodruff could be seen chatting with staff member Linda Lee between buildings 1 and 2. At the surface, that would seem to be a normal occurrence, but it took place one week after Woodruff suffered a stroke. Woodruff recovered enough from the stroke to where he could drive himself to the fair a couple of days for brief visits, but for the most part, he was absent. The fair, though, went off without a hitch. "Really, everything has run smoothly," said Ray Norman, the president of the fair board of directors, which also consists of Vice President Warren Carver, Treasurer Chuck Kramer and directors James Balkcom, Dale Tenly, Lane Tenly and Roxanne Rosier. Norman said that's a credit to the established chain of command and staff members and board members working together as they do for every fair. You have staff members who have quite a number of years put in at the fair, such as Donald Harris, superintendent of the barns, Artis Rix, superintendent of the buildings, Dale Tenly, superintendent of the home division, and Darlene Lee, who handles exhibitor booths and ads along with newcomer Linda Lee. Linda Lee said all the individuals make up a well-oiled machine. "We know what we have to do, we know who usually gets it done, we know when it needs to be done and it just happens," Lee said. "We work so well together." Darlene Lee was actually not present at the fair, having gone on a long-planned family trip to Jamaica, but she was busy, too. "She's in Jamaica, but she's on that phone constantly," Linda Lee said on March 9. "She's not just sitting around the pool and on the beach doing nothing. She's been keeping up with our Facebook page." Linda Lee said Woodruff's wife, been a big help, juggling her fair duties and the care of her husband. Volunteer John Propes, who is close to the Woodruffs, has also been a big help, Lee said. With Dale Woodruff and Darlene Lee both absent, Linda Lee was basically the visible presence at the fair. She checked phone messages than that, her duties consisted of just handling any issues that arose. Norman said such issues were few and minimal, no different from any other year. "We have minor ones that are not big deal," he said. "There's always going to be something. You can't please everybody." On the afternoon of March 9, Lee said, "We've only had one complaint by phone, and that was something to do with armbands." as a fair staff member, Lee said she felt comfortable in stepping in and doing whatever needed to be done. She's familiar with the fair having worked in the Kiwanis Club of Starke food wagon and said her family, when she was a child, was heavily involved in the Nassau County Fair. Norman said Lee "just fell right in." "Linda is new, but she picked it up real fast," he said. A lot of the work that is handled by the fair manager and staff occurs before the fair, Norman said. It starts as early as November but the daily tasks (or every-other-day tasks) begin in earnest in January. Norman gave credit to Linda Lee and Darlene Lee for their work prior to the fair. Woodruff was absent for about a month leading up to the fair when he had heart surgery. "Linda and Darlene were the two main ones because they were in it from the very beginning," Norman said. "If there were any issues or concerns, or anything that they normally did not handle, then they were to call me (as fair president)." Though he received some calls, Norman said they were few because "the staff has done it before." As for Woodruff, his wife, Pam, said, "He's doing good." He has been cleared to begin the heart-health regimen he was on following his surgery basically to get exercise, but don't overdo it. Pam Woodruff said the only impediment her husband has as a residual of the stroke is with his speech. He can talk, but his speech is sometimes halting. Sometimes words don't come to him. However, Pam said doctors expect his speech to return to normal in a couple of months. "Other than, he's doing great," she said on March 9, "but he's frustrated at not being here (at the fair)." Thankfully, Woodruff is one part of a competent staff that can ensure things get done and the fair runs as it should. "Everybody has been working together," Norman said.
