Let them eat candy Bradford High gets report card BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The final grade calculation for the 2013 school year revealed the high school wasnt able to hold onto its high grade from 2012. Bradford High School slipped one letter grade back to a C. The district as a whole was again graded a D. Since 2001, the high school has alternated between being a C and a D school. The year 2012 was the first time the school earned a B. In 2013, there was some positive movement in testing performance, which determines 50 percent of the high schools annual grade. It was not enough to counteract the negative. For several years now, the school has had a growing percentage of students meeting high standards in reading, and while the percentage has yet to pass 50 percent, the school is up 9 percentage points from 2010. Additionally, the percentage of students demonstrating reading gains was up 2 percent from 2012, and up 17 points from 2010. The percentage of the lowest quartile of students achieving reading gains, which grew from 36 to 69 percent in 2012, remained 69 percent in 2013. While reading performance improved, math performance suffered. A two-year decline in the percentage of students meeting high standards in math has taken that number from 65 to 49 percent. After climbing nine points in 2012, the percent of students making math gains fell from 79 to 64 percent, and after going from 55 to 81 percent, the percentage of the lowest quartile of students making math gains tumbled to 60 percent. There was a startling drop in writing performance, too. The percentage of students meeting high standards in writing fell from 62 to 30 percent. This was another two-year decline. The high was 83 percent in 2011. These percentages translate into points, and when the schools cumulative point total drops, so does its grade. Thats true not just of the Court upholds Bradford judges ruling on execution drug BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Florida Supreme Court upheld a decision by a Bradford County circuit judge allowing the state to use a new drug for lethal injections. Judge Phyllis M. Rosier ruled that the states new sedative, midazolam hydrochloride, adequately prevents inmates from experiencing pain during the procedure. Previously, the state used pentobarbital sodium in its three-drug cocktail for lethal injections. However, the maker of the drug, Danish-based Lundbeck, banned its sale to the state after media in Denmark reported that Danish law prohibits its use in executions. Lawyers for Askari Abdullah Muhammad, formerly known as Thomas Knight, had argued that the state failed to prove the substitute sedative was effective. They said that during William Frederick Happs execution in October, the inmate remained conscious for an unusually long time and moved his head late in the procedure showing he may have experienced pain during the execution. The Supreme Court stayed Muhammads Dec. 3 execution, and ordered Rosier to rule on Muhammads motion. The 60-year-old inmate has been on Floridas death row for almost 40 years. He was first sentenced to death for the 1974, Miami murders of Sydney and Lillian Gans. While awaiting trial, he escaped from the Dade County Jail and was accused by Georgia authorities of killing a Cordele, Ga., liquor store clerk during an armed robbery. Authorities did not prosecute Knight for those crimes, citing his Florida death sentence. While back on Floridas death row, Knight killed correctional officer Richard Burke in 1980. He was sentenced to death for a second time in 1983. UNION COUNTY SAYS GOODBYE Sheriff Jerry Whitehead laid to rest BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor When a man dies, a picture begins to emerge about what kind of man he was. If hes the respectable sort, a common theme develops that shines through, speaking volumes about the legacy he leaves. Union County Sheriff Jerry Whitehead was such a man, and even a legend. Whitehead died suddenly from cardiac failure at North Florida Regional Hospital after a brief illness at the age of 60 on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Even in the midst of shock, friends, colleagues and those in the community used words such as friend, counselor and pillar. Word quickly spread amid the shockwave of everyone wondering how this could be true. He was currently serving as the dean of sheriffs, as the longestserving sheriff in the state of Florida. He was elected sheriff of Union County in 1984 and served from 1985 until his death. He followed in his long legacy of his father, John H. Whitehead, as a law enforcement officer and sheriff. John served as sheriff from 1953 until Jerry took office. Sheriff Whitehead was a wellrespected man and a humble sheriff who believed a man was only as good as his word, and who was dedicated to doing things the right way, Steve Casey, executive director of the Florida Sheriffs Association, said in a statement. One might even say that Whitehead was the dean of Union County. He was the face of Union County, said Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith. When you think of Union County, you think of Jerry Whitehead. First off, Sheriff Jerry Whitehead was my friend, Smith said. Growing up here in this neck of the woods, most of my life, hes been the face of Union County him and his father. I just want to say, hes just been a friend to all the sheriffsnot just North Florida but all the sheriffs. There wasnt a week that went by that he didnt give some words of wisdom, or wed help each other across the county line. Hes just going to be sorely missed as a mentor to all of us. My heart goes out to his family and the people of Union County, and were going to here for them. After a press conference on Dec. 18, Bill Cervone, state attorney for the Eighth Judicial Circuit said, This is devastating. He is Union County. He loved this county and knew this county, and thats what made him so effective as a truly professional as a law enforcement officer. Capt. Brad Smith, chief of operations for the Bradford County Sheriffs Office, said, He was just a genuine man with a kind heart but a strong man, too. He did more for Union County than pretty much anybody else ever has. Sheriff WhiteheadIm going to call him Jerrywas a friend to everyone. He went out of his way to help people, Major Garry Seay of the Union County Sheriffs Office said. He was just like his dad. I

Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013 Bradford County Telegraph 3A with Christmas music BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph Hampton Elementary School ended its first semester with a rousing Christmas program last Thursday evening. The event was held on the outdoor campus; about 130 family members brought their own lawn chairs, stood, or sat on the ground to watch. The kindergartners, first and second grades went first with uptempo carols and seasonal favorites. For Act II, the younger students cleared the stage and the third-, fourthand fifth-graders took over the choral risers. For an event that lasted a little more than one hour, nobodyaudience or singersseemed to notice or mind the December chill. The program was organized and produced by music teacher Jim Peronto. He shared credit with the entire faculty and staff at the school, many of who had helped set up the stage and risers, got kids on and off and stood by during the program to make sure cast members focus and attention didnt wander. A circuit rider, Peronto also teaches at the Brooker and Lawtey schools, where students also put on the program. He arrived well before the event began, equipped with a trailer that also served as a stage. He hauled the fold-up risers stacked on top as well, and oversaw the setup of a fairly elaborate sound system. Having recently had surgery, Peronto asked for help getting it all back onto the trailer and several men, women and children from the crowd cheerfully responded to his call when the show was done. The show itself was described as a radio play, which intermittently featured students and adults, sometimes Peronto, speaking into one of a number of microphones. One song featured a tricky succession of one-line solos, with students stepping up to the mike, then clearing the way for the next one. It went off without a hitch. Marie Applings peppy conducting of the older students was not only spot on, for her, it must have been exhausting. Many of the numbers performed came from that 1950s era when performers like Elvis Presley and Albert the Chipmunk began tinkering with ancient holiday musical traditions. Much of the storysuch as it was featured numbers selected from a jukebox, and performed by the Hampton Elementary student body. And perform they did. All the classes, but older students in particular, belted out favorites as if Santas very magic depended on it; they brought the beat to the Drummer Boy and the jingle to Jingle Bells. They put 21st century rock into the 20th centurys Rockin around the Christmas Tree, even if they had never heard of Brenda Lee. Which is likely. Peronto finessed missed cues and stops for technical checks, keeping the show running smoothly with humor and aplomb. His relaxed tone set the mood for the night and the cast. The audience responded in kind, although one audience member organized her Christmas shopping at full volume over her cell phone while the kids sang their hearts out. Never mind. Its Christmas, and in a new old-fashioned way, the Hampton Elementary students made the event the most wonderful time of the year indeed. Sadly, though, Peronto is retiring after last Thursdays performance and he will no doubt be missed.

Madison St. Starke, FL Where today meets tomorrow worked for his dad for 15 years, and have been with Sheriff Whitehead ever since. He was a friend to me, and a brother to me. We have worked together for many years, Seay said. Our hearts are heavy, and everyone in the sheriffs office and the whole entire county and state are numb. When you have what I call a monarch of a community, that passes, its pretty tough, said Mark A. Hunter, sheriff of neighboring Columbia County. Im a second-term sheriff, and when I first got elected, the wisdom that Jerry was able to pass on was, just, immeasurable. He always took time with the younger sheriffs when we first came on, and passed on a lot wisdom. Although Union County may be small, I can tell you this: Jerry had a lot of experience, a lot of life experience, and what I call country logic. But he was always able to instill that in us younger sheriffs and help us get through some pretty tough times, because he experienced a lot in his life. He is going to be sorely missed, statewide. Whitehead grew up as the son of an even longer-serving sheriff, his father, John H. Whitehead, who passed away on Feb. 9, 2007. Jerry hung around the Union County Jail and went around the county with his dad, learning the importance of knowing those you serve and serving those you know. Whitehead is survived by his wife, Tammy and six children, Matt, Brad, Chelsea, Jake, Jack Henry and Presley Vivian; his brother, John Henry, and sister Cynthia; and four grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Henry and Vivian Whitehead. An honor guard stood watch over Whiteheads casket while it sat in the sanctuary of First Christian for both the visitation and memorial service. The family received friends for sixand-a-half hours on Dec. 20. At least 1,200 attended the memorial service on Dec. 21. Those in attendance included Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Congressman Ted Yoho, Union County Court Judge Bo Bayer and former Union County Court Judge David L. Reiman, Cervone, and hundreds of sheriffs and deputies from across the state and beyond. Whitehead was laid to rest at the familys Whitehead Cemetery, just east of Lake Butler on S.R. 100. The final prayer was capped off by a four helicopter flyover by the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office to honor a man who is irreplaceable: the dean of sheriffs, the sheriff of Union County, a leader to many and a friend to all. Per Gov. Scott, Seay was sworn in by Bayer as interim sheriff of Union County until Jan. 17. This provides the governor with a month to appoint a new sheriff for the coming year. The race for sheriff will be added to the midterm election on Nov. 4, 2014. Continued from 1A Kingsley residents collect for food pantry BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph Members of the Kingsley Lake Property Owners Association donated over 150 pounds of food and $290 in cash to Bradford Ecumenical Ministry Food Pantry at the Christmas celebration dinner on Dec. 6 at the community center. Following a delicious meal of Brunswick stew, cornbread and coleslaw prepared by board member Steve Denmark, association President Dub Murphree welcomed those present and introduced Betty Warren, director of volunteers for the food pantry. Warren described the work of the pantry and thanked those gathered for their support. The civic center was brightly decked out for the holiday season with exterior lights furnished by board member Duke Fuquay, and table and wall decorations provided by board members Karin Thomas, Christie Torode and Ingrid Smith. To round out the evening, attendees viewed I Love Lucy Christmas Show from 1956 and Andy of Mayberry Christmas Story from 1960 on the associations big-screen television. Everyone present enjoyed visiting with old friends, renewing acquaintances and getting into the Christmas spirit. The Kingsley Lake Property Owners Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to meeting the social needs of the community and preserving the beautiful and unique lake for which it is named. All social functions are open to the public. Upcoming events include the associations annual meeting on Saturday, Jan. 25, the Third Annual Chili Cook-off on Saturday, Feb. 22, and an Independence Day weekend party at Cooper Hall, Camp Blanding, on July 5.

Reading and math college readiness suffered, as did the point totals given for the graduation rate and at-risk graduation rate. (Even though the graduation rate is climbing, the district only received 138 out of a possible 200 points.) While the performance in accelerated curriculum was up, the overall participation by students in accelerated curriculum was down. (That alone cost the district 40 points.) In the end, Bradford High was down 171 points to 894, which was enough for a C. The C also required meeting learning gain targets (50 percent) for the lowest performing students, meeting the reading performance requirement and testing at least 90 percent of eligible students. The district pointed to several reasons for the 2013 grade, including the higher standard of performance required in writing. Teacher turnover was also blamed. The high school saw the departure of four math teachers. Speaking of turnover, the district believes the change of administrators served to hurt the high school and, ultimately, the school grade. During the 2011-12 school year when Chad and Jennifer Farnsworth were serving under Principal Rick Stephens, the school earned enough points to receive an A, although it was penalized for falling short in other areas. We believe we have a team in place now to help enhance school grades and bring the stability weve been looking for, said district spokesman Brian Graham of Principal Bryan Boyer and assistant principals Jennifer Farnsworth and Anthony McCallum. Improved student performance will best be enabled by stability in administrative and teaching positions, echoed Chad Farnsworth, now the superintendent of schools. We have worked tirelessly to recruit and retain talented professionals throughout our district. We believe we have the right administrative team in place at Bradford High School to navigate the ever-changing standards and provide consistent leadership. The district isnt just relying on staffing to turn things around, but new curriculum as well. This summer, teachers and instructional coaches planned for implementation of a new English/Language Arts and literacy across all content areas curriculum in an effort to improve our reading and writing scores, said Assistant Superintendent Lisa Prevatt. We are planning to adopt a new mathematics curriculum this spring to support the development of enhanced student math skills. Prevatt continued, This year, using grant funds, we have also formed professional learning communities to enable teachers to share best practices and learn from their fellow educators the best research-based instructional strategies for improved student performance. Bradford High Schools C matched the grades for most of the rest of the district, except for the middle school, which dropped from a C to a D. Southside and Lawtey elementary schools maintained their Cs this year, while Starke and Hampton both dropped from a B to a C. Clay County was celebrating all As and Bs. The Keystone Heights high school earned a B again this year. Union County High School dropped one letter grade from an A to a B. Florida boasted a record number of A high schools and combination schools, however. The number jumped by 92 to 240. Continued from 1A New online crash reporting available to drivers The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has a new online traffic crash reporting form. Under Florida law, drivers involved in a crash that does not warrant a law enforcement report are required to submit their own written report to the department within 10 days of the crash. The online form is intended to make it easier to submit the required form directly to the department. If the crash meets the following criteria, the driver may complete the Driver Self Report of Traffic Crash form, in lieu of having a crash report completed by the appropriate law enforcement agency: No injuries resulted from the crash (no report of pain or discomfort or visible injuries). No vehicle involved in the crash required a tow truck (wrecker). The crash did not involve (an intoxicated driver). The crash did not involve a hit and run vehicle (all vehicles involved must have been occupied). The crash did not involve a commercial motor vehicle. A simple-to-use online questionnaire will guide users through the completion of the report. Once completed, the report will be automatically submitted to the department and can also be saved and printed if needed. The Driver Report of Traffic Crash can be found at: http://www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/misc/ CrashReport/. To learn more about DHSMV and the services offered, visit www.flhsmv.gov.

The proclamation reads: Henceforth and forevermore, Dec. 4 will be recognized by the citizens of Keystone Heights as Col. Samuel Elbert Chapter NSDAR Day. The chapter donated 203 books of general interest to the Bradford County Library, with bookplates commemorating the 28 th anniversary. The chapter was honored to present and fly the chapter flag at Wreaths Across America on Dec. 14. The next chapter meeting is Monday, Jan. 6, at IHOP in Starke at 10:30 a.m. Visitors are welcome. The program topic is Colonial Witches, presented by Janet Messer and her sister, Janice. Local DAR chapter recognized for 28 years Catrell Cooney, the daughter of Dimple and Grady Overstreet of Starke, was selected for an opportunity to go through a ninehour training session with Jillian Michaels of The Biggest Loser fame and become certified to teach Michaels BodyShred class. Cooney, who lives in Cape Canaveral, went through an application/qualification process and was selected to attend a BodyShred training class in October in South Beach at the Miami Convention Center. She described the class as very intense and noted she had to pass a practical test and a written exam to receive certification. BodyShred is a high-intensity, endurance-based, 30-minute workout based upon Micahels 3-2-1 intervals (three minutes of strength, two minutes of cardio and one minute of abs). Cooney said she became more interested in holistic health and fitness prior to taking an aroundthe-world trip with her husband, Michael, and sons Morgan, Zach and Harrison. During that trip, which was chronicled in the Telegraph-Times-Monitor, her passion for both only increased, she said. After returning home, Cooney became a certified health coach and personal trainer, specializing in weight loss and healthy lifestyles. Shes also a licensed Zumba instructor and started the healthy living website www. thewanderingcocount.com.

The Dec. 26, 1963, issue of the Bradford County Telegraph certainly had a holiday feel to it as several items related to Christmas, ranging from the volume of mail at the post office to what Christmas is like in prison. The issue also included a story that noted the Yuletide spirit prevailed when Judge Y.A. Yawn handed down a $50 fine instead of jail time for a man who was speeding. We start this look back with a Starke man who was accustomed to donning a red suit and beard as a Santa Helper. Spreading holiday joy, making children happy Starke has a commissioned Santa Claus helper with 20 years experience helping Santa get Christmas messages from all over the world. With ruddy cheeks and proportions to fit, city police dispatcher Tillman McIntosh began his Santa Claus service in 1945 right here. Santa Helper McIntosh has appeared to represent Santa Claus every year since then, including a real big entrance made at Langley AFB in Virginia, where 2,500 kids turned out to greet him. As a badge of merit, he got his own suit in 1954. Those helper outfits can get expensive. A good beard can cost $30, McIntosh said. Helper McIntosh has represented Santa at drive-in theaters, for merchants, for clubs, at churches, for chambers of commerce and even at private parties. Hes also put in special personal appearances. The most heartwarming thing that ever happened to me as Santas Helper was when I went to see a 9-year-old boy who was bedridden with polio. The boys father approached me when I was appearing at a theater and told me about the boy. I made a special trip out to his house. The boy was so happy he cried. It made me feel real good to make a child so happy, Helper McIntosh said. Sometimes, though, things turn out funny, or even embarrassing, for Santas Helper. Like the time I was appearing on radio in Virginia. Over 600 children had come for our showa kiddie show I was doing at that time for radio. There I was in front of all those kids, and my pants fell down. I had springs attached to my pants legs and then attached to my garters so that my pants would spring up and down when I jumped. The springs broke, and down came my pants. All the kids saw Santa attired in dungarees. It brought the house down, Helper McIntosh said. Asked what kind of problems Santa might encounter on his yearly rounds, out came the answer warm to the hearts of Santas Florida representatives. Hot weather is the biggest problem. With a fur suit and a beard, things can get mighty hot, especially inside buildings. That beard can really make you perspire, Helper McIntosh said. Some advice to future Santas HelpersGet in and out as quick as you can. Kids ask too many questions if you stay too long. They want to know if your beard is real, if youre real, and just about anything you can think of. You always have to have an answer. I always tell the kids that Im just Santas Helper. The real Santa Claus comes all over the world on Christmas Eve. Thats his secret as to how he does it. Not even the Helpers know. Why does Helper McIntosh like his job? I like making children happy, he said. Christmas time at state prison pretty much like anywhere The spirit of Christmas isnt too much different inside a prison than outside, according to Florida State Prison Assistant Superintendent L.E. Dugger. State prison inmates celebrate Christmas almost like anyone else doeswith Christmas trees, presents, a Christmas church program and a family visit. Inmates have a Christmas program each year with carols and the Christ story. This year, on Thursday, Dec. 19, their Christmas program will be held in the prison auditorium. Slides will be shown depicting the story of Christs birth, narrated by inmates with the prison choir singing appropriate carols. One inmate will sing a solo, The Holy City, and the congregation will sing other Christmas hymns. Almost all of the prisoners attend the program. After all, it is their program, Dugger said. The prison at Raiford lights up with trees in different areas decorated by the inmates. Each different section of the prison has a tree, and all the hospital floors have one. There is also a very large tree in the family visiting area. We call it our family tree, Dugger said.

F rom Your Family Ford Dealer Featuring A Complete Service Department with Certified Mechanics to Service Your Vehicle! The weather has been mild this winter, but a few cool fronts have made their way through north Florida. Robins, gold finches and cedar waxwings have not yet invaded our backyards as they typically do at this time of the year. There have also been few reports of spawning crappie in our area lakes. T.C. Lloyd indicates that he expects the crappie will probably bed during the January full moon in many lakes. Joey Tyson reports that he continues to sell Missouri minnows to crappie fishermen in the Keystone area, primarily to Santa Fe Lake fishermen. Cody Douglas, from Lake Butler, tries to spend time fishing and hunting; however, this year he has sacrificed some of his crappie fishing for duck hunting. He primarily uses Rowell, Palestine and a few small ponds for the sport. He says that the Fins, Fur & Tails small ponds are easier to build blinds on than the larger lakes. He reports that the flight speeds of the birds present a good hunting challenge. Inland waters on the east coast are producing their share of speckled trout, whiting, blues and smaller black drum. Sheepshead, especially, have been plentiful around the rocks and pilings, according to Jim Sutton in St. Augustine. Captain Randy Harris indicates that trout and reds are available on the west coast near Steinhatchee. The inconsistent weather, however, will probably keep them moving from the shallows to deeper holes and back again. Dale Boyette and Lil Nut Dale Boyette has always enjoyed bow hunting, especially prior to gun season each year when game is more visible and less vigilant. Despite the fact he primarily hunted his own property in central Georgia, outdoors outlook he networked a lot with local hunters and seemed to always be assisting them with their archery equipment In 1999, he opened a cabinet shop at 150 Commercial Circle in Keystone Heights. Through the years, his archery skills continued to be in demand until 2011, when he decided to open his own archery shop in front of his cabinet business in Keystone. Motivated by a nickname acquired by his youngest son, the archery shop is known as Lil Nut Archery. In 2013, after the opening of the Keystone Shop, Boyette opened another similarbut larger archery shop in Middleburg. His son-in-law, Tyler Mills, runs that shop. Boyette is quick to point out that his shop is the only archery shop providing professional service such as stringing, sighting and other modifications from Jacksonville to Daytona on the east coast. He does carry a good inventory of new and used bows, but he always emphasizes the services provided by his shops. Bow hunting has a specific period prior to gun season in which only bows can be used. After gun season opens, bow hunting slows considerably. However, bow fishing replaces some of that lost interest, especially in central and northern Florida, where spring runs are common. When the larger Florida water bodies cool, the warm-natured tilapia crowd into the spring runs, and as an invasive species, they can be legally hunted with bows and arrows rigged with a fishing reel. Boyette provides the necessary bow fishing modifications and rigs at both of his shops. So if any of you bow hunters are interested in the stores inventories, accessories or services, stop by and talk bow hunting. Bob Tebow speaks at Crosshorn banquet Tim Tebows father, Bob, was the guest speaker before a full house at the Starke Country Club banquet room at the Crosshorn Ministries Christmas banquet on Dec. 19. He tied the outdoors mission of Crosshorn Ministries into the Biblical challenge of making fishers of men. The feature presentation was followed by Christmas carols, making a full evening of seasonal devotion. Tight lines, safe hunting, merry Christmas and happy holidays.

On Christmas Eve, each prisoner is given a gift box containing five packs of cigarettes, handkerchief, nuts, apples and oranges. The reason we give prisoners a present is so that everyone will receive something. Some prisonersin fact the majority receive presents from home that are mailed to them, but we dont anyone to be left out, Dugger said. On Christmas day, an inmates immediate family can visit him at the prison from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The family can bring a picnic lunch and eat with the inmate. Mothers, fathers, wives, children, brothers and sisters are welcome. An average of 400 to 500 people visit the prison on Christmas. Prisoners can also select presents to give to others from the handcraft shop or they can make presents for their friends and family. A Christmas dinner with all the trimmings is served in the afternoon. Dinner this year starts off with tomato juice cocktail and a relish tray, plus a fresh fruit dish. Turkey with giblet gravy, garnished with cranberry sauce, is the main dish, accompanied by bread dressing, snowflake potatoes, buttered English peas, creamed corn, hot cross buns and whipped butter. Dessert features pumpkin pie and hot coffee. Sports have a field day o Christmas at the prison. Twenty matches are scheduled for the 25 th They include basketball, volleyball and boxing. There are 2,800 inmates to celebrate Christmas at Raiford this year. Does Santa Claus visit the prison? No, says Dugger. Our boys are a little too old for that. Christmas volume at post office running below par so far Starke residents are slow in mailing packages and Christmas cards this year as compared to the last holiday season, Assistant Postmaster Blake Jackson said yesterday. Last year, people seemed to be mailing packages and cards Continued from 3B much earlier, Jackson said. The parcel count for Starkes post office from Dec. 1 until now is 2,397 packages against 3,744 packages received in the same period last year. Jackson said this could indicate better shopping facilities here with more persons trading at home rather than ordering gifts. Another indication that the Christmas mailing rush has not hit full force yet is mail handling man hours that post office workers have put in here. So far, 862 man hours have been spent handling Christmas mail and regular mail since Dec. 1. Last year at this time, 1,025 hours had been spent by postal workers. The canceling machine readings, showing how many first-class stamps have been canceled, is about the same as last year. Around 67,000 firstclass letters have been sent through the post office. We do expect more firstclass letters this year than last, however. A lot of businesses are using postage meters. These stamps wont be canceled at the office here, Jackson said. Jackson also urges the use of ZIP code numbers. He said the post office has a complete list and that anyone could obtain a number by calling the post office. ZIP numbers are a big help to us. Everyone should include them in address books for next year and write his own ZIP number on return addresses. Packages and letters with ZIP numbers are distributed faster, he said. The post office also urges use of 5-cent Christmas tree stamps. Jackson said, When a card goes first class, we can forward it. It will receive preferred handling and if the senders return address is on it, it will come back. Christmas lights change with signals Keystone Heights is playing it safe with Christmas lights used for decorations around the intersection traffic light between Highway 100 and Highway 21. When the traffic light is red, the lights are red on that side. When the traffic light turns green, the Christmas lights also turn green. Councilman Gene Williams got the idea and carried it through. He said that too many colored lights, strung around traffic lights, created a traffic hazard and suggested using the red-red, green-green system, which he had observed in another town. Big Dad employees are entertained at country club Employees of Big Dad Manufacturing Co. were guests at the annual Christmas dinner given by the company at 1 p.m. last Thursday at the Starke Golf and Country Club. The dinner, featuring turkey and baked ham, was served buffet style. Christmas carols were sung, after which the employees returned to the plant for their gifts. D.S. Siceloff, president of the company, was here from Lexington, N.C., for this occasion. Slade Gas Co. Christmas party The Slade Gas Co. of Starke held its Christmas party Saturday night at the home of Mr. And Mrs. Charles Sawyer. The dinner guests were seated at three large tables decorated with red and white flower arrangements and red candles. During the evening, party games were led by Mrs. A. Russell Norman. The employees bonuses were given, and gifts were exchanged.

Vero Beach went 3-0 in the tournament, winning by an average margin of 21 points. The Indians, who opened the tournament with a 63-25 win over Keystone Heights, did get a scare on the second day of the tournament from the International School of Broward, which pulled to within five points in the fourth quarter after trailing by 20-plus points. Vero Beach, though, held the Class 3A Pumas off for a 49-45 win to advance to the championship game. A basket and free throw by tournament MVP Brannon Shaw helped the Indians build an 18-9 second-quarter lead over Englewood in the championship game. Vero Beach then increased that 24-14 with the help of a jumper and free throw by David Marine.

Rogers, who had a couple of steals and a block in the second quarter, knocked down a baseline jumper with eight seconds left in the first half. It would be the only field goal of the game for the Indians. Keystones first game in the tournament was another struggle. Eventual tournament champion Vero Beacha Class 8A Final Four team two seasons agooutscored the Indians 34-6 in the first half en route to a 6325 win on Dec. 19.

The Blue Wave closed the half with a 16-2 run. Geordyn Green had a couple of nice plays late in the third quarter for the Tigers, scoring on a drive to the basket and then setting up another eventual score by Princeton Alexander following a steal.

Let them eat candy Bradford High gets report cardBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The final grade calculation for the 2013 school year revealed the high school wasnt able to hold onto its high grade from 2012. Bradford High School slipped one letter grade back to a C. The district as a whole was again graded a D. Since 2001, the high school has alternated between being a C and a D school. The year 2012 was the first time the school earned a B. In 2013, there was some positive movement in testing performance, which determines 50 percent of the high schools annual grade. It was not enough to counteract the negative. For several years now, the school has had a growing percentage of students meeting high standards in reading, and while the percentage has yet to pass 50 percent, the school is up 9 percentage points from 2010. Additionally, the percentage of students demonstrating reading gains was up 2 percent from 2012, and up 17 points from 2010. The percentage of the lowest quartile of students achieving reading gains, which grew from 36 to 69 percent in 2012, remained 69 percent in 2013. While reading performance improved, math performance suffered. A two-year decline in the percentage of students meeting high standards in math has taken that number from 65 to 49 percent. After climbing nine points in 2012, the percent of students making math gains fell from 79 to 64 percent, and after going from 55 to 81 percent, the percentage of the lowest quartile of students making math gains tumbled to 60 percent. There was a startling drop in writing performance, too. The percentage of students meeting high standards in writing fell from 62 to 30 percent. This was another two-year decline. The high was 83 percent in 2011. These percentages translate into points, and when the schools cumulative point total drops, so does its grade. Thats true not just of the Court upholds Bradford judges ruling on execution drugBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Florida Supreme Court upheld a decision by a Bradford County circuit judge allowing the state to use a new drug for lethal injections. Judge Phyllis M. Rosier ruled that the states new sedative, midazolam hydrochloride, adequately prevents inmates from experiencing pain during the procedure. Previously, the state used pentobarbital sodium in its three-drug cocktail for lethal injections. However, the maker of the drug, Danish-based Lundbeck, banned its sale to the state after media in Denmark reported that Danish law prohibits its use in executions. Lawyers for Askari Abdullah Muhammad, formerly known as Thomas Knight, had argued that the state failed to prove the substitute sedative was effective. They said that during William Frederick Happs execution in October, the inmate remained conscious for an unusually long time and moved his head late in the procedure showing he may have experienced pain during the execution. The Supreme Court stayed Muhammads Dec. 3 execution, and ordered Rosier to rule on Muhammads motion. The 60-year-old inmate has been on Floridas death row for almost 40 years. He was first sentenced to death for the 1974, Miami murders of Sydney and Lillian Gans. While awaiting trial, he escaped from the Dade County Jail and was accused by Georgia authorities of killing a Cordele, Ga., liquor store clerk during an armed robbery. Authorities did not prosecute Knight for those crimes, citing his Florida death sentence. While back on Floridas death row, Knight killed correctional officer Richard Burke in 1980. He was sentenced to death for a second time in 1983.UNION COUNTY SAYS GOODBYESheriff Jerry Whitehead laid to rest BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor When a man dies, a picture begins to emerge about what kind of man he was. If hes the respectable sort, a common theme develops that shines through, speaking volumes about the legacy he leaves. Union County Sheriff Jerry Whitehead was such a man, and even a legend. Whitehead died suddenly from cardiac failure at North Florida Regional Hospital after a brief illness at the age of 60 on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Even in the midst of shock, friends, colleagues and those in the community used words such as friend, counselor and pillar. Word quickly spread amid the shockwave of everyone wondering how this could be true. He was currently serving as the dean of sheriffs, as the longestserving sheriff in the state of Florida. He was elected sheriff of Union County in 1984 and served from 1985 until his death. He followed in his long legacy of his father, John H. Whitehead, as a law enforcement officer and sheriff. John served as sheriff from 1953 until Jerry took office. Sheriff Whitehead was a wellrespected man and a humble sheriff who believed a man was only as good as his word, and who was dedicated to doing things the right way, Steve Casey, executive director of the Florida Sheriffs Association, said in a statement. One might even say that Whitehead was the dean of Union County. He was the face of Union County, said Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith. When you think of Union County, you think of Jerry Whitehead. First off, Sheriff Jerry Whitehead was my friend, Smith said. Growing up here in this neck of the woods, most of my life, hes been the face of Union County him and his father. I just want to say, hes just been a friend to all the sheriffsnot just North Florida but all the sheriffs. There wasnt a week that went by that he didnt give some words of wisdom, or wed help each other across the county line. Hes just going to be sorely missed as a mentor to all of us. My heart goes out to his family and the people of Union County, and were going to here for them. After a press conference on Dec. 18, Bill Cervone, state attorney for the Eighth Judicial Circuit said, This is devastating. He is Union County. He loved this county and knew this county, and thats what made him so effective as a truly professional as a law enforcement officer. Capt. Brad Smith, chief of operations for the Bradford County Sheriffs Office, said, He was just a genuine man with a kind heart but a strong man, too. He did more for Union County than pretty much anybody else ever has. Sheriff WhiteheadIm going to call him Jerrywas a friend to everyone. He went out of his way to help people, Major Garry Seay of the Union County Sheriffs Office said. He was just like his dad. I

Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013 Bradford County Telegraph 3A with Christmas music BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph Hampton Elementary School ended its first semester with a rousing Christmas program last Thursday evening. The event was held on the outdoor campus; about 130 family members brought their own lawn chairs, stood, or sat on the ground to watch. The kindergartners, first and second grades went first with uptempo carols and seasonal favorites. For Act II, the younger students cleared the stage and the third-, fourthand fifth-graders took over the choral risers. For an event that lasted a little more than one hour, nobodyaudience or singersseemed to notice or mind the December chill. The program was organized and produced by music teacher Jim Peronto. He shared credit with the entire faculty and staff at the school, many of who had helped set up the stage and risers, got kids on and off and stood by during the program to make sure cast members focus and attention didnt wander. A circuit rider, Peronto also teaches at the Brooker and Lawtey schools, where students also put on the program. He arrived well before the event began, equipped with a trailer that also served as a stage. He hauled the fold-up risers stacked on top as well, and oversaw the setup of a fairly elaborate sound system. Having recently had surgery, Peronto asked for help getting it all back onto the trailer and several men, women and children from the crowd cheerfully responded to his call when the show was done. The show itself was described as a radio play, which intermittently featured students and adults, sometimes Peronto, speaking into one of a number of microphones. One song featured a tricky succession of one-line solos, with students stepping up to the mike, then clearing the way for the next one. It went off without a hitch. Marie Applings peppy conducting of the older students was not only spot on, for her, it must have been exhausting. Many of the numbers performed came from that 1950s era when performers like Elvis Presley and Albert the Chipmunk began tinkering with ancient holiday musical traditions. Much of the storysuch as it was featured numbers selected from a jukebox, and performed by the Hampton Elementary student body. And perform they did. All the classes, but older students in particular, belted out favorites as if Santas very magic depended on it; they brought the beat to the Drummer Boy and the jingle to Jingle Bells. They put 21st century rock into the 20th centurys Rockin around the Christmas Tree, even if they had never heard of Brenda Lee. Which is likely. Peronto finessed missed cues and stops for technical checks, keeping the show running smoothly with humor and aplomb. His relaxed tone set the mood for the night and the cast. The audience responded in kind, although one audience member organized her Christmas shopping at full volume over her cell phone while the kids sang their hearts out. Never mind. Its Christmas, and in a new old-fashioned way, the Hampton Elementary students made the event the most wonderful time of the year indeed. Sadly, though, Peronto is retiring after last Thursdays performance and he will no doubt be missed.

Madison St. Starke, FL Where today meets tomorrow worked for his dad for 15 years, and have been with Sheriff Whitehead ever since. He was a friend to me, and a brother to me. We have worked together for many years, Seay said. Our hearts are heavy, and everyone in the sheriffs office and the whole entire county and state are numb. When you have what I call a monarch of a community, that passes, its pretty tough, said Mark A. Hunter, sheriff of neighboring Columbia County. Im a second-term sheriff, and when I first got elected, the wisdom that Jerry was able to pass on was, just, immeasurable. He always took time with the younger sheriffs when we first came on, and passed on a lot wisdom. Although Union County may be small, I can tell you this: Jerry had a lot of experience, a lot of life experience, and what I call country logic. But he was always able to instill that in us younger sheriffs and help us get through some pretty tough times, because he experienced a lot in his life. He is going to be sorely missed, statewide. Whitehead grew up as the son of an even longer-serving sheriff, his father, John H. Whitehead, who passed away on Feb. 9, 2007. Jerry hung around the Union County Jail and went around the county with his dad, learning the importance of knowing those you serve and serving those you know. Whitehead is survived by his wife, Tammy and six children, Matt, Brad, Chelsea, Jake, Jack Henry and Presley Vivian; his brother, John Henry, and sister Cynthia; and four grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Henry and Vivian Whitehead. An honor guard stood watch over Whiteheads casket while it sat in the sanctuary of First Christian for both the visitation and memorial service. The family received friends for sixand-a-half hours on Dec. 20. At least 1,200 attended the memorial service on Dec. 21. Those in attendance included Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Congressman Ted Yoho, Union County Court Judge Bo Bayer and former Union County Court Judge David L. Reiman, Cervone, and hundreds of sheriffs and deputies from across the state and beyond. Whitehead was laid to rest at the familys Whitehead Cemetery, just east of Lake Butler on S.R. 100. The final prayer was capped off by a four helicopter flyover by the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office to honor a man who is irreplaceable: the dean of sheriffs, the sheriff of Union County, a leader to many and a friend to all. Per Gov. Scott, Seay was sworn in by Bayer as interim sheriff of Union County until Jan. 17. This provides the governor with a month to appoint a new sheriff for the coming year. The race for sheriff will be added to the midterm election on Nov. 4, 2014.Continued from 1A Kingsley residents collect for food pantry BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph Members of the Kingsley Lake Property Owners Association donated over 150 pounds of food and $290 in cash to Bradford Ecumenical Ministry Food Pantry at the Christmas celebration dinner on Dec. 6 at the community center. Following a delicious meal of Brunswick stew, cornbread and coleslaw prepared by board member Steve Denmark, association President Dub Murphree welcomed those present and introduced Betty Warren, director of volunteers for the food pantry. Warren described the work of the pantry and thanked those gathered for their support. The civic center was brightly decked out for the holiday season with exterior lights furnished by board member Duke Fuquay, and table and wall decorations provided by board members Karin Thomas, Christie Torode and Ingrid Smith. To round out the evening, attendees viewed I Love Lucy Christmas Show from 1956 and Andy of Mayberry Christmas Story from 1960 on the associations big-screen television.

Reading and math college readiness suffered, as did the point totals given for the graduation rate and at-risk graduation rate. (Even though the graduation rate is climbing, the district only received 138 out of a possible 200 points.) While the performance in accelerated curriculum was up, the overall participation by students in accelerated curriculum was down. (That alone cost the district 40 points.) In the end, Bradford High was down 171 points to 894, which was enough for a C. The C also required meeting learning gain targets (50 percent) for the lowest performing students, meeting the reading performance requirement and testing at least 90 percent of eligible students. The district pointed to several reasons for the 2013 grade, including the higher standard of performance required in writing. Teacher turnover was also blamed. The high school saw the departure of four math teachers. Speaking of turnover, the district believes the change of administrators served to hurt the high school and, ultimately, the school grade. During the 2011-12 school year when Chad and Jennifer Farnsworth were serving under Principal Rick Stephens, the school earned enough points to receive an A, although it was penalized for falling short in other areas. We believe we have a team in place now to help enhance school grades and bring the stability weve been looking for, said district spokesman Brian Graham of Principal Bryan Boyer and assistant principals Jennifer Farnsworth and Anthony McCallum. Improved student performance will best be enabled by stability in administrative and teaching positions, echoed Chad Farnsworth, now the superintendent of schools. We have worked tirelessly to recruit and retain talented professionals throughout our district. We believe we have the right administrative team in place at Bradford High School to navigate the ever-changing standards and provide consistent leadership. The district isnt just relying on staffing to turn things around, but new curriculum as well. This summer, teachers and instructional coaches planned for implementation of a new English/Language Arts and literacy across all content areas curriculum in an effort to improve our reading and writing scores, said Assistant Superintendent Lisa Prevatt. We are planning to adopt a new mathematics curriculum this spring to support the development of enhanced student math skills. Prevatt continued, This year, using grant funds, we have also formed professional learning communities to enable teachers to share best practices and learn from their fellow educators the best research-based instructional strategies for improved student performance. Bradford High Schools C matched the grades for most of the rest of the district, except for the middle school, which dropped from a C to a D. Southside and Lawtey elementary schools maintained their Cs this year, while Starke and Hampton both dropped from a B to a C. Clay County was celebrating all As and Bs. The Keystone Heights high school earned a B again this year. Union County High School dropped one letter grade from an A to a B. Florida boasted a record number of A high schools and combination schools, however. The number jumped by 92 to 240.Continued from 1A New online crash reporting available to drivers The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has a new online traffic crash reporting form. Under Florida law, drivers involved in a crash that does not warrant a law enforcement report are required to submit their own written report to the department within 10 days of the crash. The online form is intended to make it easier to submit the required form directly to the department. If the crash meets the following criteria, the driver may complete the Driver Self Report of Traffic Crash form, in lieu of having a crash report completed by the appropriate law enforcement agency: No injuries resulted from the crash (no report of pain or discomfort or visible injuries). No vehicle involved in the crash required a tow truck (wrecker). The crash did not involve (an intoxicated driver). The crash did not involve a hit and run vehicle (all vehicles involved must have been occupied). The crash did not involve a commercial motor vehicle. A simple-to-use online questionnaire will guide users through the completion of the report. Once completed, the report will be automatically submitted to the department and can also be saved and printed if needed. The Driver Report of Traffic Crash can be found at: http://www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/misc/ CrashReport/. To learn more about DHSMV and the services offered, visit www.flhsmv.gov.

Cooney, who lives in Cape Canaveral, went through an application/qualification process and was selected to attend a BodyShred training class in October in South Beach at the Miami Convention Center. She described the class as very intense and noted she had to pass a practical test and a written exam to receive certification. BodyShred is a high-intensity, endurance-based, 30-minute workout based upon Micahels 3-2-1 intervals (three minutes of strength, two minutes of cardio and one minute of abs). Cooney said she became more interested in holistic health and fitness prior to taking an aroundthe-world trip with her husband, Michael, and sons Morgan, Zach and Harrison. During that trip, which was chronicled in the Telegraph-Times-Monitor, her passion for both only increased, she said. After returning home, Cooney became a certified health coach and personal trainer, specializing in weight loss and healthy lifestyles. Shes also a licensed Zumba instructor and started the healthy living website www. thewanderingcocount.com.

Cooney takes part in Jillian Michaels BosdyShred training Christmas greetings...from the year 1963With this weeks issue dated Dec. 26but actually hitting the streets on Dec. 24why not take the time to look back 50 years ago to another issue published on Dec. 26? The Dec. 26, 1963, issue of the Bradford County Telegraph certainly had a holiday feel to it as several items related to Christmas, ranging from the volume of mail at the post office to what Christmas is like in prison. The issue also included a story that noted the Yuletide spirit prevailed when Judge Y.A. Yawn handed down a $50 fine instead of jail time for a man who was speeding. We start this look back with a Starke man who was accustomed to donning a red suit and beard as a Santa Helper.Spreading holiday joy, making children happyStarke has a commissioned Santa Claus helper with 20 years experience helping Santa get Christmas messages from all over the world. With ruddy cheeks and proportions to fit, city police dispatcher Tillman McIntosh began his Santa Claus service in 1945 right here. Santa Helper McIntosh has appeared to represent Santa Claus every year since then, including a real big entrance made at Langley AFB in Virginia, where 2,500 kids turned out to greet him. As a badge of merit, he got his own suit in 1954. Those helper outfits can get expensive. A good beard can cost $30, McIntosh said. Helper McIntosh has represented Santa at drive-in theaters, for merchants, for clubs, at churches, for chambers of commerce and even at private parties. Hes also put in special personal appearances. The most heartwarming thing that ever happened to me as Santas Helper was when I went to see a 9-year-old boy who was bedridden with polio. The boys father approached me when I was appearing at a theater and told me about the boy. I made a special trip out to his house. The boy was so happy he cried. It made me feel real good to make a child so happy, Helper McIntosh said. Sometimes, though, things turn out funny, or even embarrassing, for Santas Helper. Like the time I was appearing on radio in Virginia. Over 600 children had come for our showa kiddie show I was doing at that time for radio. There I was in front of all those kids, and my pants fell down. I had springs attached to my pants legs and then attached to my garters so that my pants would spring up and down when I jumped. The springs broke, and down came my pants. All the kids saw Santa attired in dungarees. It brought the house down, Helper McIntosh said. Asked what kind of problems Santa might encounter on his yearly rounds, out came the answer warm to the hearts of Santas Florida representatives. Hot weather is the biggest problem. With a fur suit and a beard, things can get mighty hot, especially inside buildings. That beard can really make you perspire, Helper McIntosh said. Some advice to future Santas HelpersGet in and out as quick as you can. Kids ask too many questions if you stay too long. They want to know if your beard is real, if youre real, and just about anything you can think of. You always have to have an answer. I always tell the kids that Im just Santas Helper. The real Santa Claus comes all over the world on Christmas Eve. Thats his secret as to how he does it. Not even the Helpers know. Why does Helper McIntosh like his job? I like making children happy, he said.Christmas time at state prison pretty much like anywhereThe spirit of Christmas isnt too much different inside a prison than outside, according to Florida State Prison Assistant Superintendent L.E. Dugger. State prison inmates celebrate Christmas almost like anyone else doeswith Christmas trees, presents, a Christmas church program and a family visit. Inmates have a Christmas program each year with carols and the Christ story. This year, on Thursday, Dec. 19, their Christmas program will be held in the prison auditorium. Slides will be shown depicting the story of Christs birth, narrated by inmates with the prison choir singing appropriate carols. One inmate will sing a solo, The Holy City, and the congregation will sing other Christmas hymns. Almost all of the prisoners attend the program. After all, it is their program, Dugger said. The prison at Raiford lights up with trees in different areas decorated by the inmates. Each different section of the prison has a tree, and all the hospital floors have one. There is also a very large tree in the family visiting area. We call it our family tree, Dugger said.

With help from the Baker County unit, an undercover operation to purchase meth from Griffis was conducted, then a search/arrest warrant was obtained within several hours of the purchase due to the nature of the hazardous materials he was using in the home.

Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 5B Special Discounts & Rebateson Select Products The Outdoor Power Super Store No One Beats Our Prices Happy New Year! From Your Family Ford Dealer Featuring A Complete Service Department with Certified Mechanics to Service Your Vehicle! The weather has been mild this winter, but a few cool fronts have made their way through north Florida. Robins, gold finches and cedar waxwings have not yet invaded our backyards as they typically do at this time of the year. There have also been few reports of spawning crappie in our area lakes.   T.C. Lloyd indicates that he expects the crappie will probably bed during the January full moon in many lakes. Joey Tyson reports that he continues to sell Missouri minnows to crappie fishermen in the Keystone area, primarily to Santa Fe Lake fishermen. Cody Douglas, from Lake Butler, tries to spend time fishing and hunting; however, this year he has sacrificed some of his crappie fishing for duck hunting. He primarily uses Rowell, Palestine and a few small ponds for the sport.   He says that the Fins, Fur & Tails small ponds are easier to build blinds on than the larger lakes. He reports that the flight speeds of the birds present a good hunting challenge. Inland waters on the east coast are producing their share of speckled trout, whiting, blues and smaller black drum.   Sheepshead, especially, have been plentiful around the rocks and pilings, according to Jim Sutton in St. Augustine. Captain Randy Harris indicates that trout and reds are available on the west coast near Steinhatchee. The inconsistent weather, however, will probably keep them moving from the shallows to deeper holes and back again. ( Dale Boyette and Lil NutDale Boyette has always enjoyed bow hunting, especially prior to gun season each year when game is more visible and less vigilant.   Despite the fact he primarily hunted his own property in central Georgia, outdoors outlookhe networked a lot with local hunters and seemed to always be assisting them with their archery equipment In 1999, he opened a cabinet shop at 150 Commercial Circle in Keystone Heights. Through the years, his archery skills continued to be in demand until 2011, when he decided to open his own archery shop in front of his cabinet business in Keystone. Motivated by a nickname acquired by his youngest son, the archery shop is known as Lil Nut Archery. In 2013, after the opening of the Keystone Shop, Boyette opened another similarbut larger archery shop in Middleburg. His son-in-law, Tyler Mills, runs that shop. Boyette is quick to point out that his shop is the only archery shop providing professional service such as stringing, sighting and other modifications from Jacksonville to Daytona on the east coast. He does carry a good inventory of new and used bows, but he always emphasizes the services provided by his shops. Bow hunting has a specific period prior to gun season in which only bows can be used.   After gun season opens, bow hunting slows considerably. However, bow fishing replaces some of that lost interest, especially in central and northern Florida, where spring runs are common. When the larger Florida water bodies cool, the warm-natured tilapia crowd into the spring runs, and as an invasive species, they can be legally hunted with bows and arrows rigged with a fishing reel.   Boyette provides the necessary bow fishing modifications and rigs at both of his shops.   So if any of you bow hunters are interested in the stores inventories, accessories or services, stop by and talk bow hunting.   Bob Tebow speaks at Crosshorn banquetTim Tebows father, Bob, was the guest speaker before a full house at the Starke Country Club banquet room at the Crosshorn Ministries Christmas banquet on Dec. 19. He tied the outdoors mission of Crosshorn Ministries into the Biblical challenge of making fishers of men. The feature presentation was followed by Christmas carols, making a full evening of seasonal devotion. Tight lines, safe hunting, merry Christmas and happy holidays.    Outdoors calendar Jan. 1, deer season ends in north Georgia; Jan. 12, second phase of Floridas dove season ends; Jan. 15, deer season ends in south Georgia; Jan. 19, antlered deer season ends in Floridas Zone C; March 2, squirrel and quail seasons end in Floridas Zone C.

On Christmas Eve, each prisoner is given a gift box containing five packs of cigarettes, handkerchief, nuts, apples and oranges. The reason we give prisoners a present is so that everyone will receive something. Some prisonersin fact the majority receive presents from home that are mailed to them, but we dont anyone to be left out, Dugger said. On Christmas day, an inmates immediate family can visit him at the prison from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The family can bring a picnic lunch and eat with the inmate. Mothers, fathers, wives, children, brothers and sisters are welcome. An average of 400 to 500 people visit the prison on Christmas. Prisoners can also select presents to give to others from the handcraft shop or they can make presents for their friends and family. A Christmas dinner with all the trimmings is served in the afternoon. Dinner this year starts off with tomato juice cocktail and a relish tray, plus a fresh fruit dish. Turkey with giblet gravy, garnished with cranberry sauce, is the main dish, accompanied by bread dressing, snowflake potatoes, buttered English peas, creamed corn, hot cross buns and whipped butter. Dessert features pumpkin pie and hot coffee. Sports have a field day o Christmas at the prison. Twenty matches are scheduled for the 25th. They include basketball, volleyball and boxing. There are 2,800 inmates to celebrate Christmas at Raiford this year. Does Santa Claus visit the prison? No, says Dugger. Our boys are a little too old for that.Christmas volume at post office running below par so farStarke residents are slow in mailing packages and Christmas cards this year as compared to the last holiday season, Assistant Postmaster Blake Jackson said yesterday. Last year, people seemed to be mailing packages and cards Continued from 3B much earlier, Jackson said. The parcel count for Starkes post office from Dec. 1 until now is 2,397 packages against 3,744 packages received in the same period last year. Jackson said this could indicate better shopping facilities here with more persons trading at home rather than ordering gifts. Another indication that the Christmas mailing rush has not hit full force yet is mail handling man hours that post office workers have put in here. So far, 862 man hours have been spent handling Christmas mail and regular mail since Dec. 1. Last year at this time, 1,025 hours had been spent by postal workers. The canceling machine readings, showing how many first-class stamps have been canceled, is about the same as last year. Around 67,000 firstclass letters have been sent through the post office. We do expect more firstclass letters this year than last, however. A lot of businesses are using postage meters. These stamps wont be canceled at the office here, Jackson said. Jackson also urges the use of ZIP code numbers. He said the post office has a complete list and that anyone could obtain a number by calling the post office. ZIP numbers are a big help to us. Everyone should include them in address books for next year and write his own ZIP number on return addresses. Packages and letters with ZIP numbers are distributed faster, he said. The post office also urges use of 5-cent Christmas tree stamps. Jackson said, When a card goes first class, we can forward it. It will receive preferred handling and if the senders return address is on it, it will come back.Christmas lights change with signalsKeystone Heights is playing it safe with Christmas lights used for decorations around the intersection traffic light between Highway 100 and Highway 21. When the traffic light is red, the lights are red on that side. When the traffic light turns green, the Christmas lights also turn green. Councilman Gene Williams got the idea and carried it through. He said that too many colored lights, strung around traffic lights, created a traffic hazard and suggested using the red-red, green-green system, which he had observed in another town.Big Dad employees are entertained at country clubEmployees of Big Dad Manufacturing Co. were guests at the annual Christmas dinner given by the company at 1 p.m. last Thursday at the Starke Golf and Country Club. The dinner, featuring turkey and baked ham, was served buffet style. Christmas carols were sung, after which the employees returned to the plant for their gifts. D.S. Siceloff, president of the company, was here from Lexington, N.C., for this occasion.Slade Gas Co. Christmas partyThe Slade Gas Co. of Starke held its Christmas party Saturday night at the home of Mr. And Mrs. Charles Sawyer. The dinner guests were seated at three large tables decorated with red and white flower arrangements and red candles. During the evening, party games were led by Mrs. A. Russell Norman. The employees bonuses were given, and gifts were exchanged.
