That training included the Coffee Fest and Coffee Expo trade shows in Seattle and Chicago and additional courses with specialty coffee trade associations. as a roaster, technician and for green coffee buying. Just that class alone is like twenty-six different classes, he said of the green coffee lot of work. The training consisted of an analysis of the coffee commodities market and pricing. Coffee production may get disrupted by weather, disease or political upheaval. Beck purchases from an importer now, and even though through his work at Dynatest he is familiar with importing and exporting, he doesnt have the volume to import on his own, which would require him to purchase container-loads of coffee. Youre talking about 87,000 pounds of coffee, he said. Im not at that stage. Maybe down the road. His most recent class was in sensory training. In that class he has to analyze different aromas of coffee and was tested on his accuracy. Your bitters, your sweets, and your citrusy acids, if you will, in your coffee, he said of the aromas. So, we got tested on that and analyzing doing triangulation tests with coffee. He said the biggest sellers now are medium roasts like Ethiopian and Monsoon Malabar: beans grown along the southwestern coast of India.

See COFFEE, 3A Rainfall totals double the average The St. Johns River Water Management District said that Mays wet weather pushed rainfall totals across the district to double the average. In a news release, the district said that for the month of May, the districtwide rainfall total was 8.8 inches compared to the average of 3.5 inches. This is a departure from last years data when rainfall was trending While Mays rainfall has been reported as record setting, it wasnt record setting in all areas of the district, with weather stations in Jacksonville, Orlando, Daytona Beach and Vero Beach having recorded more rain in prior years. Indian River County had the highest monthly rainfall, with 11.6 inches, followed by Seminole and Volusia, with just over 10 inches. Twelve-month rainfall totals are above average, with a zone of unusually high rainfall running through northern Alachua, Putnam, southwest St. Johns and northwest Flagler counties. Putnam County had the highest 12-month rainfall of 76 inches. Districtwide, the annual total is 16.5 inches above average. District declares Lakes Appreciation Month With nearly 1,500 lakes within its boundaries, the St. Johns River Water Management District will recognize July as Lakes Appreciation Month to increase public awareness about the value of Floridas lakes and to encourage behaviors that will enhance lakes health. The districts Governing Board approved a proclamation at its meeting on Tuesday. Floridas lakes are essential to the environment and economy of the state, as well as its residents and visitors, said Dr. Erich Marzolf, director of the districts Division of Water and Land Resources and the Region 4 director on the North American Lake Management Society Board of Directors. The districts largest lake, Lake George, covers 73 square miles and is just one of more than 4,200 natural lakes in Florida. Lakes are among Floridas most valuable natural resources, and their importance should not go unnoticed. Marzolf represents Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee on the societys board. The St. Johns District joins other Florida water management districts in recognizing Lakes Appreciation Month, and NALMS annually proclaims July as Lakes Appreciation Month. The intent of the annual resolution is to raise awareness of provide. In addition, NALMS conducts its annual Secchi DipIn each July. Started in the United States, the Secchi Dip-In is now an international effort in which volunteers produce a snapshot of water transparency in lakes around the world.

Carol Studdard, Mary Bolla and Janice Kerekes voted for the increase while Betsy Condon and Ashley Gillhousen opposed the measure. The increase will cover additional costs associated with school security. Condon said the increase will result in an average of $200 more in property taxes and complained that the measure allowed the district to spend the money on expenses in addition to school security. Condon also said the increase is double what school The tax increase will generate around $10 million in additional revenue while the projected school security costs are $1 million. Condon

The Melrose Senior Community Center, Gallery 26 Mossman Hall and Melrose Bay Art Gallery each featured a single artist who will have their art on display throughout the month of June. All career choices revolved around art. The senior community center featured artist Kim Sims. From an early age Sims loved art and often as a child had her work entered in local and state contest from which she received many awards. Art became a goal for myself. All career choices revolved around art, she said. Sims interned with a billboard company at a time when they were still hand painted. She learned drafting, lettering, layout and scale. It was a good experience, but billboards were not my calling, she recalled. Sims also interned with a faux she gained a vast knowledge of a variety of painting techniques. She attended college studying set making, and then moved Sims featured art included paintings, mixed media and various pieces incorporating the use of glass created into pictures. It rains all winter in Oregon. I was stuck inside. Cedar Wazella was featured artist at Melrose Bay Art Gallery. His displayed works varied from watercolors to mystical characters carved from wood-knots and bronze sculptures. Wazella, a self-taught artist, feels living a large part of his life in Oregon is responsible for his wide variety of art interests. It rains all winter in Oregon. I was stuck inside. I my mind busy, Wazella said. Wazella has been an artist all his life. When I was about 19 I had a premonition to do a painting for my Grannie. She said thats a pipedream! You need to get a job, a real job. I told her no, Im going to be an artist, said Wazella. Wazella has never had a job other than being an artist. Well, there was the time when I was drafted. After being told what to do for two years I knew Id never work for anyone else again, so I became an artist, said Wazella. Wazella traveled with a friend to visit Florida about a year ago and fell in love with the state, especially the Melrose area. I traveled around the state, all the way to the Keys. I knew about the art shows in Melrose so I made sure I got back in time. That was it. I moved here, said Wazella.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor Department of Corrections attempting to get drugs into area correctional institutions last week. The attempts ranged from a chemist cooking up his own version of acid and mailing the drugs to Florida State Prison West on a childs handwritten greeting card, to a woman trying to smuggle methamphetamine into the same institution in a diaper. In a third case, an employee at the Union Correctional Institution work camp was arrested after suboxone was discovered in his vehicle. High-tech According to court papers, William Hahne, who has a college degree in chemistry was in the Broward County Jail with Damian Fernandez during 2012 and 2013. A Department of Corrections Senior Inspector wrote in a probable cause to smuggle acid into Florida State Prison, once Fernandez returned there. Hahne was to mix 25i-NBOME from ingredients he obtained through the internet. 25i-NBOME, also known as 25i, is a psychedelic hallucinogen that has been used in brain research but is also used for recreational use. Hahne planned to mix the chemical, then spray it onto a greeting card that was to look like one hand-written by a child. He was then to mail the card to Fernandez inside FSP, who would then break down the card into strips or hits and sell them to other inmates. Fernandez was then to have family members pay UCI Employee arrested William Hahne Tatianna Brown Hahne $400 for his involvement in the scheme. In September 2016, Hahne mailed the card to a third inmate whom Fernandez tried unsuccessfully to recruit in to the plan. The card was intercepted by FSP mail room staff. both Hahne and Fernandez admitted to the conspiracy and the attempt to smuggle the drug into the facility. Low-tech called the Bradford County visitor to the prison was caught with methamphetamine. According to an arrest report, Tatianna Brown, 25, of Cocoa passed all check points carrying brown rock-like substance within a diaper which tested positive for meth. UCI work camp employee arrested On June 8, a Union County deputy responded to a call at the Union Correctional Institution work camp, after a dog found suboxone in a vehicle parked in the facilitys lot. According to an arrest report, Lawrence Norton ONeal Jr., had a prescription for the drug but was unable to produce the prescription on scene. The dog also found a small amount of marijuana inside the vehicle. The amount of marijuana was so small that it required all of it it, wrote Union deputy Phillip Sellers in the report. Therefore, no marijuana was turned over did yield positive results for the presence of marijuana.


Thursday, June 14, 2018 Lake Region Monitor 3A morning brew at FirePower Coffee. Background: Carol Beck and Kenny Booth.

Leading the group in a song is Melody Whitley and Jackie Huntley. harvested, the Malabar beans are left under covered shelters for about six months during the monsoon season, where they take in moisture, swell and lose some of their acidity. Its a real smooth coffee, Beck said. Another coffee that sells well is Ethiopian Sidamo 3, which Beck says, when roasted correctly, has a note of blueberry. Its in the medium roast and its about 422 degrees or so, when we drop the coffee, eight degrees either side of that, you lose it. If you go with a light roast, its still fruity but note. If you go dark, its not there. After my interview with Beck, he let me sample the Ethiopian Sidamo 3 and I did taste a hint of blueberry. Beck said reaction to his new business has been positive, with good reviews on Yelp and Google. So far, some of his biggest customers have been teachers at Keystone Heights High School. In addition to his location at 322 State Road 100, where he shares a building with American Gutter, the company will soon distribute through the internet and is developing relationships with local restaurants for distribution. The S.R. 100 location has a caf where customers can order and drink coffee on site. When I asked Beck for coffee brewing tips, his number one suggestion was to use a carafe. Coffee typically brews around 200 degrees, and left on a burner, the water in the pot evaporates, leaving less and less water in the pot with the same amount of coffee. It tastes terrible over time, he said. So yeah, you wind up with a higher concentration. Beck said the new, most advanced brewers, like Breville and Behmore come without a warming plate and the devices put the brewed coffee directly into a carafe. He added that carafes hold heat surprisingly well. They will brew into it at 200 degrees, and then those double-wall stainless carafes hold that heat, he said of the brewers. We actually brewed coffee into ours, brought it back here, and by the end of the day, it was down to like 150 degrees from 200 coming out of the spigot. Brew ratios and water quality are also important he said. Many of Becks customers are younger, in the Starbucks generation. Looking at me, he said: Our age bracket is assuming youre in the same age bracket as I am were used to the Folgers, the Maxwell House, Cowboy coffee, your typical restaurant caf, truck stop coffees. But it seems like the younger crowd is more health-conscious, and theyre much more interested in all the fancy coffees: the Americanos, the lattes, all the variations of coffees, and Starbucks has done that. Now, he and other specialty from the coffee culture that Starbucks created. At the close of my interview with Beck, I asked him if there was a triggering event that got him into home roasting, using the Behmore 1600 in 2014. His reply was: just for the love of coffee.

At the completion of FSA testing we started designing our rockets in class, said Teacher Jodi Briscoe. Students applied their own creativity after we discussed possible designs in class, then researched. The students spent six classroom days working on their individual rockets from design to of previous years models as well as her personal observations and knowledge of what works well and not so well. Students were required to research. They examined information about the center of pressure, center of mass and the importance of using the correct ballast. Students drew and labeled their rocket design. Each student also submitted a materials list to Briscoe before starting to build. With their design in mind, and laid out on paper, students started constructing their rockets, Briscoe said. But, as with any always go as planned. While she encouraged cooperative sharing of ideas, Briscoe insisted that each student create his or her individual rocket. The students launched their the back of the school. Fourthgrade extended studies students observed the launches knowing they would be the participants next year. Caleb Cushman, a Keystone Heights High School junior and member of the National Honor Society, volunteers in Briscoes classroom on Fridays. Cushman manned the rocket launcher and assisted as each student launched their rocket. I wasnt in Mrs. Briscoes class, so I didnt get to do this, said Cushman. Caleb goes above and beyond all the time when he works with the students. He is really a good role model for them, Briscoe said. Each student completed two measured launches, one for height and another for distance. An altimeter attached with duct tape to the base of the nosecone allowed measurement of altitude. A tape measure gauged distance. Rockets were launched from a NASA-designed launcher on loan from Santa Fe Colleges Watson Center science instructor Melanie Roberti. Briscoe gathered students before starting the launches and reviewed safety rules. As soon as we open that valve, it goes, and you are going to get wet, warned Briscoe. Christine DJavaheris rocket reached the highest elevation at 108 feet. Mallory Sanders rocket went the farthest. As a follow-up to the unit of study, every other year Briscoe to the Kennedy Space Center. years fourth grade will go on a combined trip next year. We go every other year to make it more affordable, to split the cost of the bus, Briscoe remarked. Stephens, Cohen Hanion, Destin Farrell and Curran Capper.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer Looking at blood vessels through a microscope, constructing marshmallow catapults and making things like bouncy balls and a substance called gloop. These are the kinds of things that really appeal to kids in the Santa Fe College Andrews Centers annual Jr. Exploring Science camp. Though Jr. Exploring Science, graders, is about fun and games, doing hands-on experiments and making messes, the kids are curious enough to ask questions before they get to the really fun stuff. Teacher Rachel Ricker, for example, received numerous questions from students as she was talking about black holes. Hands kept going up. How big are black holes? What do the inside of black holes look like? Sierra Paige stumped Ricker with her question. After hearing that times slows down near a black hole and that whatever goes into a black hole doesnt come out, Paige asked, If you could get out, would you be in the past or the future? Not every kid gets to learn about astronomy at such a young age, Ricker said. I think introducing it gets their curiosity going and gets them excited about science. This is the fourth year that Santa Fe has offered Exploring Science to complement its College for Kids programs. Andrews Center Director Cheryl Canova believes the summer I still dont know that science in the school system is handson, she said. When people hear science, I dont think they relate to the fun part of it. For example, its more fun to learn about gas and chemical reactions when you put baking soda inside a balloon and then attach the balloon to a bottle that contains vinegar. When the baking soda is dumped into the Or how about making something called elephant toothpaste? Combine hydrogen peroxide, dish-washing soap and food coloring in an empty plastic soda bottle. Add a mixture of warm water and dry yeast so that a colorful foam oozes from the bottle. The yeast acts as a catalyst that breaks down the hydrogen peroxide into oxygen gas and water. The oxygen gas gets trapped by the soap, which results in the foam. The reaction also creates heat, giving children an example of an exothermic reaction. Understanding science can also be tasty, like when you use Oreo-type cookies as examples of tectonic plates. principles can be presented in a way that children can grasp them. Even relativity can be explained in simple terms, she said. The goal is to let children get exposed to science at a young age so they are not intimidated by it and even develop an excitement for it. I really push that science is accessible to everyone, Ricker said. I really hope thats what they get out of the camp.

Faye Ricker has been an Exploring Science instructor in the past, while Rachel Ricker and Tessa Ricker both taught this years camp. Theyre very advanced, Canova said, but they are so good with the kids. They can put it down on their level. Its so exciting. Tessa Ricker and Edrick Hamilton will coach Exploring Science for older children (rising sixth-10th-graders), which will take place Monday through Friday, June 18-22, from 12:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. each day.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer Eating a breakfast consisting of toasted ravioli and macaroni and cheese. Sculpting an animal out of clay. Constructing a sun dial. Writing a book. Solving a Rubiks Cube. Making a movie. All before noon. Just the typical morning in the life of a college student. Right? Well, maybe not the college student youre thinking of, but it sums up what mornings are like for participants in the annual Jr. College for Kids program, hosted by Santa Fe College in Starke. From June 4 through June 8, a little more than 30 rising secondclasses during a four-hour period each day. The idea is to give children something fun to do for part of their summer, but a little education is wrapped up in that fun as well. Theyre learning, and they dont realize theyre learning, said Cheryl Canova, the director of the Santa Fe College Andrews Center. Thats the secret its fun, and theyre learning. There are no tests, no grades, no homework nothing to worry about. It just makes learning exciting. Thats why we do it. Another reason for the program is to expose children to a college campus at an early age. Canova said children learn not to be afraid of college by taking Jr. College for Kids classes in Santa Fe classrooms. You dont start in high school getting them ready for college, Canova said. You start when theyre in the second grade or even earlier thinking about it and feeling comfortable with the idea of what college is all about. Margaret Godwin, who has taught multiple years in the program, has experienced College for Kids has impacted children, but she also hears about its impact at home. Both of her children have been participants. My daughter hasnt been able to participate the last few years, Godwin said, referring to the fact her daughter aged out of the program. She still talks about it as the best thing ever. tastes This years program allowed children to learn skills, such as how to tell time using the outdoors in the Survival 101 class, while multiple classes, such as Cool Sculptures, Fun with Color, Paint and Pen and Movie Making, allowed them to explore their artistic sides. Movie Making, a new offering this year that Godwin taught, was just what it sounds like. Children, after dividing into three groups, utilized the iMovie editing application to make mini movies, which the class enjoyed watching, while eating popcorn, on the last day of Jr. College for Kids. Students held brainstorming sessions to come up with ideas for their movies. One group apparently had a hard time deciding which ideas to use or not use, as their movie had a little bit of everything pirates, Spider-Man, time travel and a lava monster. Just to be able to let them loose and be creative its just so fun to watch, Godwin said. I start the class off giving them a little guidance, but then they run with it. I just love to watch them develop their own ideas. Godwin also taught Brain Games, which included such things as learning how to solve a Rubiks Cube, and one of the programs more popular classes in Iron Chef Kids. Children get the chance to eat, which, of course, is an appeal, but they also learn how to make what they eat. Godwin said her goal is to give children a knowledge of the kitchen, while also giving them recipes that, with adult supervision, arent too hard to follow at home. Students made such things as toasted ravioli, macaroni and cheese and Philly cheesesteaks. Theyre not making PB&Js in this cooking class, Godwin said.

This year, Godwin, using a U.S. map, had children exploring different regions of the country in regard to food. Toasted ravioli and macaroni and cheese, for example, was representative of Wisconsin and other states of the Great Lakes region. Upon hearing what they would be making in the kitchen that particular day, one student said, Were in cheese heaven. With most kids, you cant go wrong with mac and cheese, but sometimes the Iron Chef Kids experience leads to children Canova said one student this year had never tried mushrooms. He tasted a cooked mushroom when the class was making Philly cheesesteaks and declared he didnt like it. Canova told him to try the mushrooms as part of the sandwich, explaining that student did as she suggested and liked the sandwich, mushrooms and all. I said, Well, go tell your mother you ate mushrooms. I thought that was cool, Canova said. This marked the eighth year Jr. College for Kids has been offered, complementing the older version of College for Kids (for rising sixth-10th-graders). Starkes Santa Fe College center is the only one that offers a program for the younger children. Canova believed children who enrolled in College for Kids had younger siblings who were a little jealous of the fun their older brothers and sisters were having. Instead of making them wait until they were old enough to take College for Kids, Canova decided to start Jr. College for Kids. Canova knows she made the right decision. All she has to do is see the excitement on the childrens faces each year. I continue to do this, Canova said. College for Kids for older children, which will take place Monday through Friday, June 18-22, from 8 a.m. until noon each day, still has openings.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer Union County High School its new boys basketball coach, hiring Jimmy Thomas, who led the Tigers to two Final Four appearances. Thomas, a 1965 UCHS graduate, whose last headcoaching stint was 10 years ago at Keystone Heights High School, said he missed being away from the game. He coached as an assistant to the Mendez girls basketball team the last two years, but now takes the reins of a team at a place hes quite familiar with. Im really excited about it, Thomas said. I have a lot of history here. Union Superintendent of Schools Carlton Faulk, who said he and Thomas go back a ways, wasnt surprised that Thomas was ready to be a head coach again. He loves coaching, Faulk said. Hes done it for so long. Faulk said the school had some good candidates apply for the position, but a committee that reviewed and interviewed applicants went with Thomas, who had the most experience. Faulk said, adding that the fact Thomas is from Union County is a plus. Thomas played basketball and football and participated in He received a scholarship to play both basketball and football at the University of Tennessee, though he wound up playing just football. Thomas, a defensive back, was a member of the 1967 and 1969 SEC champion teams. As a head coach, who has more than 350 wins in 25 years, Thomas led the Tigers to separate stints. In 1975, Union lost to eventual champion Lake Weir, while in 1994, the Tigers lost to eventual champion Port St. Joe. The Tigers were one win away from the Final Four in the 1974 and 1976 seasons. We just had some good kids, Thomas said of those teams. Thomas also had headcoaching stints at Citrus, Clay, Dunnellon and Newberry. Hes got so much knowledge, and he works well with kids, Faulk said. Like hes done during the coached at, Thomas said hes going to start from scratch, working with the players on basic fundamentals.

Walker Drive(SR 100)Keystone Heights 352.473.3176 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer John Staples, who has 344 career wins and a state title on his resume, has been hired as Bradford High Schools new head baseball coach. BHS Athletic Director Lamar Waters equated the hire to a batter getting a pitch right down the middle of the plate on a favorable count. Its a big-time hire for our baseball program, Waters said. We look forward to having many successful years with him. Staples, whose most recent coaching experience was at Baker County, is ready to make an immediate impact. Im not looking to rebuild anything, Staples said. I want to win this year. I want the kids to take on that culture and start winning district championships. BHS will host a public meetand-greet with Staples on Thursday, June 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the BHS media center. Staples, whose coaching career began in 1986 as an assistant in football and basketball at Eau Gallie High School, won a state championship during a two-year stint at Jacksonvilles Arlington Country Day and led teams to 10 district championships. In his 18 years as a head coach, his teams advanced to the regional playoffs 15 times. Besides Arlington Country Day and Baker County, Staples was head coach at Eau Gallie and P.K. Yonge. He served as an assistant coach in various sports at Cocoa and Merritt Island as well. He is the winningest coach (all sports) at Baker County. He stepped down as the Wildcats head coach following the 2010 season because he was taking a job as an assistant principal at the school. Baker Countys policy is to not have administrators also coach. Fair Association awards 4 scholarships at annual meeting BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer It was too hard to say one was better than any of the others, so the Bradford County Fair Association decided all four applicants for its annual scholarship were worthy, presenting $500 awards each to Dezirae Tabet, John Grant Tallman, Maudrey Tenly and Josh Worten at its annual meeting, which was held June 5 at the fairgrounds. the association has awarded as many as four scholarships at a time. Fair Manager said the scores assigned to the four applications, which were reviewed by Santa Fe College Andrews Center Director Cheryl Canova, were close. We could not settle on one, Woodruff said. Tabet and Tenly are Bradford High School graduates. Tabets planned area of study is animal science, while Tenlys is agriculture. Tallman and Worten are Union County High School graduates. Tallman plans emergency medical technician or paramedic, while Wortens planned area of study is veterinary medicine. This is what its all about, guys, Woodruff said. Its the kids. We have to remember that it is not the adults with the cattle and the swine and the goats. It is about the kids. If we ever forget that, we wont have a fair. one Saturday a month, which, along with other fundraisers, provides money for the scholarships. The June 5 meeting also included the reelection of the entire fair leadership team. Joining Woodruff as part of the staff are: Darlene Lee (assistant fair manager), Linda Lee (exhibitor booths and advertising), Donald Harris (barns and grounds superintendent) and Artis Rix (buildings superintendent). The board of directors consists of: Ray Norman (president), Warren Carver (vice president), Chuck Kramer (treasurer), Roxanne Rosier (secretary), James Balkcom, Dale Tenly and Lane Tenly. Woodruff talked about the steps being taken to improve the fair, including receiving a $1.5 million legislative grant to build new barn/arena facility. The plans are to have it seat in excess of 500 people and be air-conditioned, Woodruff said. Additional funding was applied for to build a new building that would replace current buildings 1 and 2, but the fair association did not receive it as monies were diverted toward school safety in the aftermath of the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Plans are to still construct a new building, which will contain exhibition booths during the fair and house fair Bradford Food Pantry and Communities in Schools of Bradford County. It will also serve as a Level 1 evacuation shelter. Woodruff gave kudos to Chemours for providing all the labor in removing the ditches and swells on the midway grounds and said the parking lot and buildings 2 and 3 have new LED lighting, which provides better visibility as well as a reduction in electric costs. Plus, the entrance area of Building 1 was renovated prior to the 2017 fair. We are making improvements every year, Woodruff said. Improving also relates to Woodruff, who suffered a stroke shortly before the start of this years fair. In fact, in a little over a years time, Woodruff suffered a heart attack (January 2017), openheart surgery (January 2018) and the aforementioned stroke. Nothing next year, he said. Woodruff mentioned his health because he wanted to express his thanks to all who stepped up in his absence to make this years fair a success. He gave special thanks to his wife, Pam, who got stuck with the wrong last name and covered for me unbelievably, and Linda Lee. Those two women took the brunt of it during his absence, Woodruff said. The board members were asked to stand by Woodruff, who said, They stepped up this year and actually worked the fair. It was not a cushy job this year. I thank you all very, very much. It was appreciated. While he was giving thanks, Woodruff didnt want to neglect two individuals who do so much work long before the fair opens Donald Harris, the barns and grounds superintendent, and Artis Rix, the buildings superintendent. Those two people work tirelessly in the background, Woodruff said. They were out here for more than 25 days every day before the fair, including Saturdays and Sundays. I have no idea how many hours. They deserve a tremendous round of applause. Next years fair is scheduled for March 5-10 and will have the theme, Hometown Heroes. We dont care if its an at the hospital, a janitor, your mom or your dad. Whoever is your hero is our hero, Woodruff said. We welcome you to bring your hero to the fair. The fair wont be the only big annual event to be held at the fairgrounds. Woodruff said Starkes Strawberry Festival will now be held there as well. events, he said. Staples retired in 2016. He got back into baseball, serving as a volunteer hitting instructor and third-base coach for Baker County the past two years. Now, hes ready once again to take the reins of a program. Im ready to get back after it, Staples said. Its been my life and my love. Staples, who was the pitching coach on the 1985 Brevard Community College team that has had 102 of his former players play in college. Seven players were drafted to play professionally. Waters said its hard to land a coach with Staples credentials. Were just pretty excited, Waters said. Staples, whos also coached football, basketball and softball, describes himself as an intense, very demanding coach that preaches paying attention to details and the small things, which are those things that can cause a team to let a win slip out of its grasp. This program will be built around not losing games, he said.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Appointed store manager at the age of 12 and taking over the business at 18, Marc Jackson has heard it all at Jackson Building Supply. Recently, Marc and Eric Jackson discussed some of the most frequent comments theyve heard through the years from their customers and employees. Back in 1955, when Billy Jackson first started selling the remnants of buildings he demolished to the public: used lumber, nails, plumbing fixtures, electrical items and more, Starke Builders and Pangborn Lumber were Bradford Countys and the Lake Regions primary building suppliers. Since that time, Marc and Eric have seen many competitors come and go, and each time a new arrival entered the market, customers and employees would always say: theyre going to put us out of business. From Scottys to Hodges; from Do It Best to True Value and Gold Key; and from Ace to Amazon and Home Depot most have left, some have remained. Marc and Eric said that while they respect the competition, they focus on the customer and that has led to the companys 62year track record. Eric said he wishes he had a quarter for every phone call he has received from a customer in Middleburg or Gainesville. Searching for an item and discovering that after driving miles without success, the very thing they were looking for was five minutes from home. With six decades in the building and hardware business Marc knows what to stock. And Eric has built a reputation for hitting the phone and internet, relentlessly searching for something they might not have. Think about it. If you go to Jacksons first, and they dont have what you are looking for, youve lost nothing. The other way around, and youve wasted hours. Seems hard to believe. Theyve been in the same location since 1975, on Bradford Countys busiest road: U.S. 301, just past the new Burger King. Yet, some customers still say: I didnt know you were here. A few years ago, the Jacksons approved a complete store reset, replacing shelving and signs, flooring and more. The sales desk went from the back of the store to the front, and the entrance went from the middle of the building to the side. But the changes didnt stop there. Recently, Eric upgraded the stores interior lighting with LED bulbs. An alert customer can probably notice something different every time he walks through the door.

Iva Smith STARKE Iva Lavania Bolden Smith, 91, homemaker, seamstress, and traveler, passed away peacefully at her home in Starke surrounded by her loved ones on Monday, June 11, 2018.

Before macular degeneration took her sight, she also took special pleasure in sewing clothing for her children and granddaughter. These beautiful creations are still cherished by her family. Iva also had an adventurous spirit. After X.M. retired from the railroad, they took to the open road and joined the New River Ramblers, traveling across the country in their motorhome and camping with friends. They would spend several months out of every year exploring the lower 48 states, Alaska, and Canada. The memories of those camping days, often shared at annual family reunions, will live on through her loved ones. An active member of the United Methodist Women, Iva was a faithful woman who not only enjoyed the simple pleasures of life but brought joy to everyone she touched. She lived her life as the well done, good, and faithful servant, (Matthew 25:23), and now she has who cleared the path for Iva include X.M, her loving husband of 73 years; her parents, Jerry and Mattie Lou Bolden; and her four brothers, Henry Hank, Jerry June, George, and Robert Bobby Bolden.

In addition we are grateful to our downtown merchants association for their gracious gifts of renewing the wreaths for the memorial park during our ceremony. Boy Scout Troop 70, as well as the JROTC color guard from Bradford High School, are to be commended for their part in the ceremony. These students were out of school for the year, yet, they volunteered their time to come out and honor our veterans as did the public and families of our fallen.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. 14 June at the Legion at 715 Edwards Road. The public is invited to attend. Raymond Hunt, Commander Post 56 Dear Editor: Again it seems the County Commission and county the county residents other departments. And again as a result of another study they are talking about the City of Starke being asked to give up our Fire Department or other monetary resources to make it possible for the county to have a Fire Department. That is asinine to say the least. The residents in the City of Starke make up approximately 20% of the county population and pay with no resources from the county, yet our Fire Department is expected to respond to all that arise out in the county. Another ridiculous proposition. When I get my yearly tax bill from the county/city only about 10% goes to the City of Starke with the remaining 90% going to the county with as a city resident. Why do our County Commisioners and be asked to provide anything to build or maintain a county protection through taxes, utility fees, sales tax money collected in the city, etc. with no money from the county. Why do our County Commissioners lack the guts to step up and provide department through increased taxes on county properties on county residents, but not trying to impose it on city residents as we already pay more than our fair share to the county.
