Wrapped up in readingRemembering KingAnnual program honors leaders legacy BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The faith-filled service in honor of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. got underway Monday at the historic RJE school with song, prayer and scripture. Selections performed by the Bradford Gospel Ensemble, which sang throughout the program, were followed by a blessing from the Rev. James Jones, who said it was evident that King loved the Lord because of the life he lived, and it was because of that life that we have come so far. Then little Bernaria and Bernard Nichols took turns delivering scripture from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Bernaria started at the beginning, with verses from the first chapter of Genesis. Bernards scripture was from Hebrews 11 about putting faith into action. If anything enthused the crowd during the program, it was examples of youth excellence. If fact, youth led much of the program, including Zaharia Collins, who served as mistress of ceremony. Farah Duhart welcomed the audience. The reigning Miss Bradford Fest said the day was a time to reflect on the life of a civil rights leader who empowered men and women across the globe. This day stands as a monument to the accomplishments of Dr. King to which he dedicated his life, that all men and women are created and treated equally, she said, encouraging everyone to act to bring about change. Do something to make a change in your community, for it may live on forever, Duhart said. Live a legacy and believe in yourself. True leaders work in silence so the future outcome will make the noise. Jaquita Richardson discussed Kings life and his campaign to end racial segregation and discrimination. He also promoted peace and the preservation of life in the process, she said. Martin Luther King is regarded as a hero because he risked his life to end segregation and help African-Americans gain their freedom. In spite of the opposition he faced, King never gave up, Richardson said. He was arrested over 20 times, yet despite it all, he continued his labor for change. He organized and led marches for the right to vote, desegregation, fair hiring and other basic civil rights, she said, giving special mention to Kings now famous I Have a Dream speech. In this historic speech, King said he had a dream that one day white and black children would walk hand The talents of Jessie Mae Berry and Jimmy Hankerson are always highlights of the annual MLK service. Porn charges added after COs arrestBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The water has gotten even hotter for a former Bradford County correctional deputy accused of sexual battery. The sheriffs office has kept details quiet as they work with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate allegations against Robert V. Melton. Additional charges were said to be likely, and Melton, 59, was rearrested on 12 additional charges Jan. 15. The sexual battery allegations involve a child victim. Now Melton has been charged with 11 counts of possessing child pornography as well as promoting or distributing sexual performance by a child. His original arrest for sexual battery also involved a child pornography charge, according to court records. After obtaining a search warrant for Meltons Starke home and a storage shed, investigators recovered computers, a mobile phone and other items. What they found established probable cause for the new charges, said Capt. Brad Smith of the Bradford County Sheriffs Office. Melton, who had been released after his bond was set at $85,000, was rearrested at his home without incident on Jan. 15. Booked at the Bradford County Jail, he was transferred to an undisclosed correctional facility for his protection. Smith said he was being held on a total bond of $1.2 million. Melton was hired by BCSO in 2007. He submitted a handwritten resignation at the time of his original arrest. FDLE brought the allegations to the attention of the sheriffs office. Robert Melton Whitehead appointed Union sheriff37-year-old is the third generation in family BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Jan. 15, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Brad Whitehead as the new sheriff of Union County till an election can be held on Nov. 4. Scott stated in his press release, I am confident that Brad Whitehead will be a great sheriff. His experience in law enforcement has prepared him to serve the families of Union County. The 37-year-old becomes the third generation of the Whitehead family to hold the seat of sheriff of Union County. By the governors appointment, Maj. Garry Seay had served as interim sheriff since Dec. 18 after Sheriff Jerry Whitehead passed away suddenly at the age of 60 from cardiac arrest after a brief illness. It is a great honor to work for three generations of the Whitehead family with the Union County Sheriffs Office, Seay said. I back and support Sheriff Brad Whitehead 100 percent and look forward to continuing serving the sheriffs office. Jerry Whitehead was the longest serving sheriff in Florida at the time of his death. To many, he was Sheriff Whitehead, but to me and my siblings, he was dad, and our hero, Brad said at Jerrys memorial service. My dad was a people person who loved his Brad Whitehead See SHERIFF, 6A See KING, 2A

This speech will live on forever. If we are to go forth, we must go back and rediscover those precious values, Richardson said. Henry Wade performed a poem he wrote himself called Dedication about Kings wisdom and commitment. With a tongue of silk and steel, he said, King taught humility while encouraging people to embrace their ability. He was often called a black leader, but people of knowledge resent this notion. His message and beliefs transcended race. His cause was love, courage and devotion, Wade said. Though many of his dreams are yet to come true, his works created much change. And when he said I wont get there with you, we all thought, How profound. How strange. There was much he never saw in his lifetime, Wade said, but King made it to the mountaintop, to the Promised Land. Other poetry included Carnell Williams performance of The Creation and The Negro Woman, in which Edna Allen called attention to the struggles of black women. In addition to the singing, the crowd was treated to three praise dance performances, first by Jimmy Hankerson, then by the mother-daughter pair Kendra and Destiny Crum. Later, Diamond Bass and Aaliyah Taylor together offered live song and dance. The gospel ensemble wasnt the only choir to perform. A childrens choir also sang for the crowd, impeaching everyone to Put a Little Love in Your Heart. Soloists during the program included Jeremiah Hernandez, Janell Lennon, Keith Taylor and Jessie Mae Berry.

There were 86 science projects from Bradfords middle school students and 42 more from Bradford High. John Tinsler is the school districts science curriculum resource director at the junior high and high school levels. He is also a science teacher and organizes the annual fair with the assistance of eighth-grade science teacher Sabrina Harden along with a host of other teachers and generous volunteers. Tinsler said this year there were 22 to 25 volunteer judges deciding who will represent Bradford County at the Regional Science Fair. Students who won first and second place at the county level will go on to a regional level fair on Feb. 13 and 14, to be held at Gateway College in Lake City. Those winners will go on to state and national fairs later this year. In Bradford County, the science fair is supported by the Starke Kiwanis Club, by various banks, by labs at Shands Hospital and other generous supporters. Tinslers wife, Julee, is the Bradford County School Boards finance director and is also on the board of the Bradford Education Foundation, which gives mini-grants each year to support the fair. I am a strong believer in the science fair program, Julee said. The fair helps kids grasp the scientific method, which is a key component in the states science standard. The scientific method is a process for testing things we know, or think we know, or want to know. The scientific method is the key component in the search for truth versus trusting traditional lore or holding onto biases and assumptions. The majority of the students grasp the scientific method, they get it, Julie said. You can tell right away which student gets it and which doesnt. And the cool thing is that whatever your interests are, theres science behind it somewhere. The scientific method requires a student to study some problem or phenomenon of interest and form a hypothesis: The water in our dogs water bowl will freeze if left outside when the temperature falls below 32 degrees, for example, is a hypothesis. The students experiment will prove or disprove the hypothesis. Having your hypothesis proven wrong is not a negative.

Travis Hales, left, compared the growth rate of bacteria in warmer versus colder environments. enough trials and control over the variables, the research shows a scientific fact whether the hypothesis is proven correct or incorrect. There are some issues arising around the traditional American science fair. Judges must consider whether students whose families are at the lower end of the economic scale show as well as the students whose families Maudry Tenley convinced friends and family members to sit in an empty room for four minutes and 38 seconds to see whether older or younger people have different perceptions of time.

They are not faceless children. They are children you see in your neighborhoods, in malls, in classes with your children, and even in your churches. They come from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. The common thread is that their families have failed to keep them safe. They often have PTSD because of the traumas they have seen and felt. But even with horrible and difficult home situations, they almost always love their parents. So when they are taken away in the dead of night from all that they know and love, however bad, their worlds are turned upside down, leaving them scared and feeling alone. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are appointed by the court to be the voice of these children, but they do so much more. They nurture them and make sure they are safe. Be someone who really sees the childnot as a sad, hopeless case, but as a child that just wants to be treated normally, to be cared about, to feel protected, to have hope for the future. Volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary work for the children and the court system. For just a few hours a month, you can change a childs life and enrich your own world. Training is free, and the next class starts March 3. Call 904-966-6237, go to www.gal.alachua.fl.us, or just browse to get more information.

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Jim DeValerio at jtd@ufl.edu.Its time to plant treesI read that Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, should I plant a tree on that day? That is the National Arbor Day date. Arbor Day in Florida is celebrated on the third Friday in January so you should have planted your tree on Jan. 17 this year. But you still have time to plant your tree. What are my options for planting a tree? You can go to a nursery and select a potted tree or you can transplant a tree from another location by carefully lifting it with as much of the roots as you can and moving it to another location. You will need to cut the roots off 6 to 8 inches out from the trunk. Planting in the winter reduces the shock of being planted because the trees are not growing vigorously. This is especially true for deciduous trees (they lose their leaves in the winter) like peaches, plums, apples, sweetgum, maple, crapemyrtle, dogwood and some oaks. Planting in mid-winter gives trees time to recover from being planted so they can be ready for their buds to expand with the onset of warm spring temperatures. Should I get a big tree so I get shade sooner? Absolutely not! It is best to start with small trees that have well-formed roots. Research has shown that a 2to 4-foot tree will catch up to a 6to 8-foot tree within two years. The roots of smaller trees expand out more readily and set the young tree up for a long and healthy life. Like raising children, those early years are very important in the big picture of a trees life. How should I select a tree? Avoid trees that are root bound or that have circling roots. Encircling roots are roots that are not pointing out from the tree trunk. Inspect the tree roots at the nursery before you purchase it. Oftentimes trees are root bound if you can see the roots on the top of the pot. Inspect the tree for insects, particularly difficult-to-see scale insects. Select trees with a single trunk or branching characteristics you prefer. What should I plant and where should I plant my tree? There are lots of kinds of trees: big ones, small ones, flowering trees, fruit trees, evergreen trees or ones that lose their leaves. Consider where you want your tree and then select one that will do well in that location. Trees need room to grow and big trees need lots of room. Consider what size your tree will be when it is full-grown and choose a site based on that information. Optimal soil pH, soil depth and drainage characteristics and light requirements should also be considered when selecting a tree for your landscape. Most trees prefer full sun but many, like dogwoods, are understory trees that prefer some shade. You may find you have several kinds of trees that will do well on your site. The last part is the best part. You get to select a new tree for your landscape. I have a variety of trees on my property and I enjoy all of them! The University of Florida has a great resource to help you select a tree at http://lyra.ifas.ufl.edu/ NorthernTrees/. How do I plant it? The tree should be planted in a hole that is at least 1.5 times wider than the root ball. It is very important not to plant the tree too deep. Plant the tree so that the top of the root ball is even with, or slightly higher than, the point where the top-most root emerges from the trunk. How often should I water my tree? I am glad you asked! You should water your newly planted tree every day that it doesnt rain for at least two weeks, and then at least twice a week for the next month or two. To learn more about tree watering, fertilizing, mulching, pruning and much more visit your county extension office or consult the University of Florida Web page at http://hort.ifas.ufl.edu/woody/ establishment.shtml.

And he loved his family and friends. If you didnt know him, you got to know him. Thats just the kind of man he was. The new sheriff has worked as assistant warden for the Florida Department of Corrections since 2009, most recently at Florida State Prison in Raiford. He previously served as senior prison inspector within the Office of Inspector General, as correctional services administrator, and as a law enforcement investigator for the State Fire Marshals Bureau of Fire and Arson Investigations. He received a bachelors degree in criminal justice from Florida State University. He was sworn in at the Union County Courthouse on Jan. 17. Thirty days ago, prior to Dec. 18, I had no idea I would be standing here, he said. While I ultimately knew that one day it was a life goal to become sheriff, after my father and grandfather, I also envisioned doing so with my father standing beside me. Standing here today, I know that it will not be easy, and nothing worth having is. But I draw strength from knowing that God makes no mistakesmy dads passing and that fact that Im standing here today must be Gods plan for Union County at this moment.SHERIFFContinued from 1A can afford to buy fancy bells and whistles, for example.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a rematch of last years District 5-2A championship match, but the Keystone Heights High School girls soccer team couldnt win its second straight title, losing 3-0 to Santa Fe on Jan. 17 in Gainesville. The Raiders (24-1) played a physical match that Keystone head coach Kenny Seneca said was no different from the teams two regular-season meetings, which Santa Fe won by scores of 4-2 and 2-0. Theyre a very physical team. The other two times we played them, they were physical, Seneca said, adding, Sometimes it gets in (the Keystone players) heads when it gets physical out there. Keystone (17-8-1) will have to travel to Ocala to play defending state champion Trinity Catholic in a regional quarterfinal match on Thursday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. Trinity Catholic (14-3-1), which earned the right to host by defeating Umatilla 8-0 for the District 6 championship, defeated the Indians 8-0 in last years regional semifinals. We played them last year, so we kind of know what to expect, Seneca said. Its going to be very challenging. Keystone and Santa Fe appeared as if they would play a scoreless first half, but the Raiders Kim Melton was in the right place at the right time, collecting a rebound and scoring after teammate Taylor Martin missed a shot directly in front of the goal. That put the Raiders up 1-0 with approximately Santa Fe defeats Keystone for District 5 championship12 minutes remaining until halftime. We knew if we went out there and played our game, that we could beat them, Seneca said. It just didnt go our way tonight. They got a lucky break in the first half on their first goal and kind of got momentum from there. If things had one our way and we had gotten that break, you never know. The Indians set themselves up with a good scoring opportunity in the 18th minute, with Julia Osteen and Raychel Trimble passing the ball back and forth down the field. Trimble received the ball inside the box, but was unable to get the ball past the Santa Fe goalie. Santa Fe had several good looks in the first half, but misfired on some opportunities, with Arzie making several nice See DISTRICT, 5B B-U Technical Center is proud owner of 2 new trucks BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Kirk Abercrombie and Robert Lyons are too old to ask Santa Claus for toy trucks. How about the real thing, then? The two men are the instructors for the Bradford-Union Technical Centers commercial vehicle driving program, which received a gift in the form of two semi trucks from Florida Gateway College. Christmas may have passed, but the timing was perfect for the technical center program. The three trucks students take out on the road each have at least 1 million miles. Christmas was a little less than a month ago, but this is truly Christmas in January, Bradford County Superintendent of Schools Chad Farnsworth said during a Jan. 17 reception and key exchange. Added Abercrombie: Its been a long time coming. Farnsworth and BradfordUnion Technical Center Director Christy Reddish both thanked Congressman Ted Yoho, who was present, for helping speed up the process. Approval of the transfer of titles had to be gained from the Department of Labor, which funded a grant Florida Gateway College used to purchase the vehicles. The request wound up sitting on a desk for months, Reddish said. Thats when Yoho stepped in. He helped them to understand how critical it was the timeliness of this transfer, Reddish said.

Prevatts serving food, fun in Starke BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Word on the street was the Prevatt family, which owned Prevatts Sports Bar and Grill in Middleburg, was going to open a restaurant in Starke. Jackson Prevatt and his son Brandon said they werent sure how those rumors started, but after hearing them they thought theyd take a ride to Starke and see if there was a location that would suit their purposes. The result made rumor become reality. The family, which also includes Jacksons son, Jason, opened its second restaurant located on Call Street in the former Mama Mias location in late November. We wanted to expand and take on new responsibilities and challenges, Brandon said. Brandon said the family kept getting asked all kinds of questions about opening a restaurant in Starke and even closing the restaurant in Middleburg. It was strange as the family had no plans of expanding at that point in time. We heard a bunch of different versions of how we were ultimately moving to Starke, and everybody was sure of it, Brandon said. We didnt want to let anybody down. Starke was at the top of Jackson Prevatts list anyway when it came to possible sites for a second restaurant. He was born and raised there. My dad was a preacher here in town and had a little church called Airpark, right there between the high school and the middle school, Jackson said. I grew up about a block from there on Collins Street off of Pratt (Street). I walked to every school Ive ever been to. I walked to Starke Elementary, walked to the middle school and then walked to the high school. Ive been here all my life up until I got to be an adult. It was Middleburg where Jacksons sons primarily grew up. The strip-mall site where the family opened the first Prevatts had been the site to a couple of different restaurants covering a period of more than 30 years. Brandon said the only reason those previous restaurants closed was health issues with the owners. It had proven it was going to do all right, Brandon said. Brandon said he and his brother used to hang out at the restaurant that preceded Prevatts, so they were familiar with the locale. The brothers, who had experience in sales, thought opening a restaurant there would be a fun thing to do. For Jackson, the business seemed like a good way to reconnect with his sons. His job in sales and marketing for Delta Airlines kept him away from See PREVATT, 4B Jolley graduates from Flagler College Kirksey graduates from basic trainingABOVE: Jackson is pictured with sons Jason (left) and Brandon.

While police were interviewing the victim the same day, McCloud called the victim, asking why she called the police.

The lack of restaurant experience and a bad time to open a business in light of the economy at the time did nothing to deter the family, which opened Prevatts Sports Bar & Grill approximately four years ago. We just jumped in like idiots, Brandon said, laughing, with Jackson adding, Yeah, were not the smartest group in town. We just decided to go with it. The start of the restaurant kept Brandon pretty busy. When we first opened the restaurant, technically Dad was still working full time for Delta, and my brother was still working full time for a mortgage company, he said. I ran the restaurant pretty much night and day and lived in it for about a year. I dont think we really had time to figure out if we were successful or not. We just kind of rolled with it. There was just a ton of stuff to do all the time. Now, theres a lot of work involved in trying to get a second restaurant established. You constantly have something to do, Brandon said. Theres a lot of responsibility. Not only that, to have a successful restaurant in these smaller towns, you have to provide the customers with entertainment and things to do. Just coming and eating dinner isnt enough. Prevatts hosts poker and pool tournaments, for example, and offers cornhole on Tuesday nights. Live music is also a staple of Prevatts. We want you to come in and eat, but we want you to hang out for a little while, too, Brandon said. Grab a beer, enjoy your friends, watch some sports, play a game. Offering various activities and entertainment does not mean the Prevatt family members do not take pride in the food they serve. Prevatts cuts its own chicken strips and steaks, and makes its own sauces and dressings. Everything is cooked to order. We cook everything fresh, Brandon said. Theres nothing under a heat lamp ever. The menu offers the usual items you would find in any similar restaurant, but there are differences. We tried to make it a little different than your typical sports bar that specializes in wings and burgers, Jackson said. I mean, we have those, and we have very good ones, but we came up with stuffed potatoes, which you dont see in many other places. Brandon said the common belief is the simpler the menu, the better.

If you cant find three or four things on our menu you like, you might not like food much. For the Prevatts, Starke is home; Middleburg is home. They want their restaurants to feel like home. Its why Jackson says employees work with the Prevatts instead of for the Prevatts. I dont really ever look as anybody working for me, Jackson said. They work with us. We make it more of a family. Youre part of it. Youre not just an employee; youre part of this place. The same goes for those who choose to stop and dine. The Prevatts want to chat with you and get to know you if they dont already. Really, thats what makes the effort required to run a restaurant worth it. Its a lot of hard work, but its fun work, Brandon said. Its not really hard to get up and go hang out with your friends. In the end, the Prevatt family members want to be more than restaurant owners. They want to become immersed in the communities they serve. You dont want to just be a business, Jackson said. You want to be part of the fabric of what makes the community what it is. To do that, you need to participate. You need to be part of it. It seems the Prevatts were destined to become a part of the Starke community. They dont know how those rumors of opening a restaurant in Starke began, but theyre happy to now be there. Its like coming back home, Jackson said.

Congressman Yoho made contact with the Department of Labor and told them of our predicament. He encouraged them to make a timely approval and transfer. The very next week, we had the go-ahead. Added Farnsworth: I want to thank him for his efforts in facilitating this transfer and help everyone understand this guy is truly dedicated to Bradford County. For his part, Yoho said he was excited to be able to partake in the transfer of the keys. This is an awesome thing. However, he deflected a lot of the credit to Clay Martin, his district director. Clays one of those guys who sits in the background, Yoho said. You dont hear much from him, but hes a worker. He does a lot of work. He gets things done. He knows how to work stuff through the system. Reddish said thanks also go to Florida Gateway Colleges Tracy Hickman (vice president, operational programs), who was also present for the Jan. 17 key exchange. Florida Gateway College once offered a truck-driving program, but it was last offered approximately two years ago, Reddish said. The two trucks the Bradford-Union Technical Center received from the college are 2008 models and each has approximately 21,000 miles on it. (The three road trucks the center has been using are 2000 models.) Theyre not really broken in until about 100,000 miles, so theyre brand new to us, Abercrombie said. They still smell new inside. Now, the three trucks the Bradford-Union Technical Center was taking out on the road can be utilized strictly for training at the schools driving range. It worked out good because I dont know if the other ones couldve made it on the road for another class, Abercrombie said. Every student gets 1,000 miles (on the road). Right now, we have 12 students. Farnsworth and Yoho both took an opportunity to look at the big picture. Farnsworth said the Bradford-Union Technical Centers commercial vehicle driving program has a graduation percentage in the high 90s and an employment rate of 100 percent, with many students getting TRUCKSContinued from 1B hired prior to the programs completion. What our community will thrive on is putting people to work and helping people get behind the wheels of these trucks, Farnsworth said. Currently, there are over 500,000 jobs across the United States in truck driving. For our community to be able to tap into those opportunities its just immeasurable the impact that can have. Yoho said the commercial vehicle driving program is part of the backbone of this country and is key to making this part of the state recession proof. Has anybody here ever bought anything? We go to a store, right? That stuff just doesnt show up there, Yoho said. Its got to be driven there. The freight line and the truckers are the backbone of getting product around this country. Yeah, the rails are out there, too, and they do a fantastic job, but its got to go from the rail to the store. If it wasnt for the truckers of this great country of ours and our road system, we Robert Lyons, one of the Bradford-Union Technical on as somebody checks out the inside of one of the wouldnt have the convenience and the products we have on our shelves. These programs are so important. It creates jobs. It makes this community stronger. Our goal is to make North Central Floridathe Third Congressional District of Floridathe economic driver, not just for the state, but for the Southeast. The commercial vehicle driving program at the BradfordUnion Technical Center has been helping supply drivers toward that end since the 1970s. It was the first truck-driving program in the state of Florida, Farnsworth said. Thats saying a lot. The fact that were honoring this program with two beautiful, new trucks is just a great thing to see. It was an event to match the a childs excitement of waking up on Dec. 25. Like the superintendent said, its like Christmas all over again, Reddish said. We couldnt believe it. We were pinching ourselves on (Jan. 15) when we actually transferred the titles.

8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014 Fins, Fur & Tails Ever since the age of 12, Jeff Fitts has been a resident of Keystone Heights and an avid outdoorsman. Fitts wife is a teacher in Gainesville, and his two daughters are attending the University of Florida.   Also, his son is a junior at Keystone Heights High School. Well diversified, but solid outdoors seems to be a good description of Fitts. Even his self-employment work of removing unwanted vegetation like lake grass is easily scheduled around his guide trips and fishing tournaments. During the winter, he likes passion for the outdoorsto hunt and guide for turkey. Throughout the year, he is a competitive bass fisherman with the Rayovac FLW professional series. As if that wasnt enough, he guides and hunts alligators during the summer. If he had to choose between those activities, he would probably be in trouble, but he admitted that he has a really strong passion for bass fishing. When prodded about other outdoors activities, Fitts indicated that he had worked with Shaw Grigsby and Kim Stricker on some television programs. Apparently, Fitts provides information and equipment for their camera crews. In looking for ideas that would be helpful for the nonprofessional fisherman, Fitts indicated that, foremost, you have to know the water you are fishing. According to Fitts, professionals will gather as much information about the target water from people who have firsthand experience along with information like strategic features that can be gathered from the Internet.   Lastly all good professionals will try to pre-fish the target water prior to the tournament. Another suggestion Fitts gives fishermen and hunters is to fish and hunt according to the solunar charts. He emphatically stresses that one can surely see more game activity during the major and minor feeding times. When asked about a correlation between cattle grazing and fish/ game activity, he was careful to not dismiss it, but he did say that he thought wild game and birds would be a better indicator than domestic cattle. Fitts is an honest outdoorsman who truly knows his business, and he works hard at making the activities he is passionate about into a living. If you ever want some assistance or want to entertain a friend with turkey hunting, bass fishing, crappie fishing or alligator hunting, this man can help.Coyotes are the talk at Crosshorn meetingLauren Watine, a biologist with the University of Florida, was the guest speaker at the Jan. 17 Crosshorn Ministries meeting.   W atine covered the results of a two-year study on the impact of coyote predation on the local wildlife population.   The study leaves little doubt that the coyote is having no good influence on our native wildlife. Fifty years ago, coyotes did not venture east of the Mississippi, but today they inhabit the United States from the west coast to the east coast. The expanded population is due primarily to foxhunters importing the canines to be used by hunters to chase with deerhounds. Unfortunately, the coyotes, having escaped or been released, are now an apex predator that can decimate native wildlife such as deer, turkeys and quail. The presentation was very informative, and the next Crosshorn Ministries meeting will be on March 27 at 7 p.m. at the Starke Golf and Country Club.Outdoors outlookSpringtime is just around the corner. Many of our small wildlife are already getting romantic or will be in the next month. Watch out on the roads at night for foxes, bobcats, raccoons and skunks.   They are like teenage humans at this time of the year and somewhat irrational. Likewise, many of the songbirds will also become territorial. Woodpeckers will start drumming their amorous tunes on trees, posts and even housing metal. The crappie spawn will soon be over, and bass will soon be fanning. For just a little longer, the crappie bite will maintain its number-one spot in the freshwater fishing worldat least until the bass start fanning.   Appropriately so, the professional USA Crappie Tournament was held on Jan 18 at Crecsent Lake near Palatka. T.C. Lloyd, a local crappie resource and guide from Middleburg who fished the tournament, tells us that the crappie spawn is still delayed this year due to the cold, and he names Newnans Lake as the best performing crappie lake in our area. If you are interested in bow fishing or freshwater sight fishing, this is a great time of the year. Mullet and tilapia are attracted to the relatively warm water of the spring runs that eventually connect to the east and west coasts. The two fish are easily seen, and the tilapia are easily hit with a fishing bow. The mullet are much harder to target with arrows, but they readily bite small, natural baits and small flies. Once hooked, they provide a great fight. Tight lines and safe hunting until next week.   If you have a story, idea or photo to share, please contact Mickey Agner via email at mka@ maoutdoors.com, or by phone at 904-964-1488.

Wrapped up in reading Remembering King Annual program honors leaders legacy BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The faith-filled service in honor of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. got underway Monday at the historic RJE school with song, prayer and scripture. Selections performed by the Bradford Gospel Ensemble, which sang throughout the program, were followed by a blessing from the Rev. James Jones, who said it was evident that King loved the Lord because of the life he lived, and it was because of that life that we have come so far. Then little Bernaria and Bernard Nichols took turns delivering scripture from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Bernaria started at the beginning, with verses from the first chapter of Genesis. Bernards scripture was from Hebrews 11 about putting faith into action. If anything enthused the crowd during the program, it was examples of youth excellence. If fact, youth led much of the program, including Zaharia Collins, who served as mistress of ceremony. Farah Duhart welcomed the audience. The reigning Miss Bradford Fest said the day was a time to reflect on the life of a civil rights leader who empowered men and women across the globe. This day stands as a monument to the accomplishments of Dr. King to which he dedicated his life, that all men and women are created and treated equally, she said, encouraging everyone to act to bring about change. Do something to make a change in your community, for it may live on forever, Duhart said. Live a legacy and believe in yourself. True leaders work in silence so the future outcome will make the noise. Jaquita Richardson discussed Kings life and his campaign to end racial segregation and discrimination. He also promoted peace and the preservation of life in the process, she said. Martin Luther King is regarded as a hero because he risked his life to end segregation and help African-Americans gain their freedom. In spite of the opposition he faced, King never gave up, Richardson said. He was arrested over 20 times, yet despite it all, he continued his labor for change. He organized and led marches for the right to vote, desegregation, fair hiring and other basic civil rights, she said, giving special mention to Kings now famous I Have a Dream speech. In this historic speech, King said he had a dream that one day white and black children would walk hand The talents of Jessie Mae Berry and Jimmy Hankerson are always highlights of the annual MLK service. Porn charges added after COs arrest BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The water has gotten even hotter for a former Bradford County correctional deputy accused of sexual battery. The sheriffs office has kept details quiet as they work with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate allegations against Robert V. Melton. Additional charges were said to be likely, and Melton, 59, was rearrested on 12 additional charges Jan. 15. The sexual battery allegations involve a child victim. Now Melton has been charged with 11 counts of possessing child pornography as well as promoting or distributing sexual performance by a child. His original arrest for sexual battery also involved a child pornography charge, according to court records. After obtaining a search warrant for Meltons Starke home and a storage shed, investigators recovered computers, a mobile phone and other items. What they found established probable cause for the new charges, said Capt. Brad Smith of the Bradford County Sheriffs Office. Melton, who had been released after his bond was set at $85,000, was rearrested at his home without incident on Jan. 15. Booked at the Bradford County Jail, he was transferred to an undisclosed correctional facility for his protection. Smith said he was being held on a total bond of $1.2 million. Melton was hired by BCSO in 2007. He submitted a handwritten resignation at the time of his original arrest. FDLE brought the allegations to the attention of the sheriffs office. Robert Melton Whitehead appointed Union sheriff 37-year-old is the third generation in family BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Jan. 15, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Brad Whitehead as the new sheriff of Union County till an election can be held on Nov. 4. Scott stated in his press release, I am confident that Brad Whitehead will be a great sheriff. His experience in law enforcement has prepared him to serve the families of Union County. The 37-year-old becomes the third generation of the Whitehead family to hold the seat of sheriff of Union County. By the governors appointment, Maj. Garry Seay had served as interim sheriff since Dec. 18 after Sheriff Jerry Whitehead passed away suddenly at the age of 60 from cardiac arrest after a brief illness. It is a great honor to work for three generations of the Whitehead family with the Union County Sheriffs Office, Seay said. I back and support Sheriff Brad Whitehead 100 percent and look forward to continuing serving the sheriffs office. Jerry Whitehead was the longest serving sheriff in Florida at the time of his death. To many, he was Sheriff Whitehead, but to me and my siblings, he was dad, and our hero, Brad said at Jerrys memorial service. My dad was a people person who loved his Brad Whitehead See SHERIFF, 6A See KING, 2A

This speech will live on forever. If we are to go forth, we must go back and rediscover those precious values, Richardson said. Henry Wade performed a poem he wrote himself called Dedication about Kings wisdom and commitment. With a tongue of silk and steel, he said, King taught humility while encouraging people to embrace their ability. He was often called a black leader, but people of knowledge resent this notion. His message and beliefs transcended race. His cause was love, courage and devotion, Wade said. Though many of his dreams are yet to come true, his works created much change. And when he said I wont get there with you, we all thought, How profound. How strange. There was much he never saw in his lifetime, Wade said, but King made it to the mountaintop, to the Promised Land. Other poetry included Carnell Williams performance of The Creation and The Negro Woman, in which Edna Allen called attention to the struggles of black women. In addition to the singing, the crowd was treated to three praise dance performances, first by Jimmy Hankerson, then by the mother-daughter pair Kendra and Destiny Crum. Later, Diamond Bass and Aaliyah Taylor together offered live song and dance. The gospel ensemble wasnt the only choir to perform. A childrens choir also sang for the crowd, impeaching everyone to Put a Little Love in Your Heart. Soloists during the program included Jeremiah Hernandez, Janell Lennon, Keith Taylor and Jessie Mae Berry.

Fair demonstrates science skills BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph The Bradford County Science Fair was held at the middle school in Starke on Jan. 15. There were 86 science projects from Bradfords middle school students and 42 more from Bradford High. John Tinsler is the school districts science curriculum resource director at the junior high and high school levels. He is also a science teacher and organizes the annual fair with the assistance of eighth-grade science teacher Sabrina Harden along with a host of other teachers and generous volunteers. Tinsler said this year there were 22 to 25 volunteer judges deciding who will represent Bradford County at the Regional Science Fair. Students who won first and second place at the county level will go on to a regional level fair on Feb. 13 and 14, to be held at Gateway College in Lake City. Those winners will go on to state and national fairs later this year. In Bradford County, the science fair is supported by the Starke Kiwanis Club, by various banks, by labs at Shands Hospital and other generous supporters. Tinslers wife, Julee, is the Bradford County School Boards finance director and is also on the board of the Bradford Education Foundation, which gives mini-grants each year to support the fair. I am a strong believer in the science fair program, Julee said. The fair helps kids grasp the scientific method, which is a key component in the states science standard. The scientific method is a process for testing things we know, or think we know, or want to know. The scientific method is the key component in the search for truth versus trusting traditional lore or holding onto biases and assumptions. The majority of the students grasp the scientific method, they get it, Julie said. You can tell right away which student gets it and which doesnt. And the cool thing is that whatever your interests are, theres science behind it somewhere. The scientific method requires a student to study some problem or phenomenon of interest and form a hypothesis: The water in our dogs water bowl will freeze if left outside when the temperature falls below 32 degrees, for example, is a hypothesis. The students experiment will prove or disprove the hypothesis. Having your hypothesis proven wrong is not a negative.

Megan Brown, left, compared the effects of citric acid on eggs, a substitute for tooth enamel. James Cavin, right, compared the bacteria growth rates antibiotic Baytril. Travis Hales, left, compared the growth rate of bacteria in warmer versus colder environments. enough trials and control over the variables, the research shows a scientific fact whether the hypothesis is proven correct or incorrect. There are some issues arising around the traditional American science fair. Judges must consider whether students whose families are at the lower end of the economic scale show as well as the students whose families Maudry Tenley convinced friends and family members to sit in an empty room for four minutes and 38 seconds to see whether older or younger people have different perceptions of time.

New Guardian ad Litem class starting The thought of children who have been abused, neglected and abandoned is not an abstract idea. They are not faceless children. They are children you see in your neighborhoods, in malls, in classes with your children, and even in your churches. They come from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. The common thread is that their families have failed to keep them safe. They often have PTSD because of the traumas they have seen and felt. But even with horrible and difficult home situations, they almost always love their parents. So when they are taken away in the dead of night from all that they know and love, however bad, their worlds are turned upside down, leaving them scared and feeling alone. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are appointed by the court to be the voice of these children, but they do so much more. They nurture them and make sure they are safe. Be someone who really sees the childnot as a sad, hopeless case, but as a child that just wants to be treated normally, to be cared about, to feel protected, to have hope for the future. Volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary work for the children and the court system. For just a few hours a month, you can change a childs life and enrich your own world. Training is free, and the next class starts March 3. Call 904-966-6237, go to www.gal.alachua.fl.us, or just browse to get more information.

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Jim DeValerio at jtd@ufl.edu. Its time to plant trees I read that Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, should I plant a tree on that day? That is the National Arbor Day date. Arbor Day in Florida is celebrated on the third Friday in January so you should have planted your tree on Jan. 17 this year. But you still have time to plant your tree. What are my options for planting a tree? You can go to a nursery and select a potted tree or you can transplant a tree from another location by carefully lifting it with as much of the roots as you can and moving it to another location. You will need to cut the roots off 6 to 8 inches out from the trunk. Planting in the winter reduces the shock of being planted because the trees are not growing vigorously. This is especially true for deciduous trees (they lose their leaves in the winter) like peaches, plums, apples, sweetgum, maple, crapemyrtle, dogwood and some oaks. Planting in mid-winter gives trees time to recover from being planted so they can be ready for their buds to expand with the onset of warm spring temperatures. Should I get a big tree so I get shade sooner? Absolutely not! It is best to start with small trees that have well-formed roots. Research has shown that a 2to 4-foot tree will catch up to a 6to 8-foot tree within two years. The roots of smaller trees expand out more readily and set the young tree up for a long and healthy life. Like raising children, those early years are very important in the big picture of a trees life. How should I select a tree? Avoid trees that are root bound or that have circling roots. Encircling roots are roots that are not pointing out from the tree trunk. Inspect the tree roots at the nursery before you purchase it. Oftentimes trees are root bound if you can see the roots on the top of the pot. Inspect the tree for insects, particularly difficult-to-see scale insects. Select trees with a single trunk or branching characteristics you prefer. What should I plant and where should I plant my tree? There are lots of kinds of trees: big ones, small ones, flowering trees, fruit trees, evergreen trees or ones that lose their leaves. Consider where you want your tree and then select one that will do well in that location. Trees need room to grow and big trees need lots of room. Consider what size your tree will be when it is full-grown and choose a site based on that information. Optimal soil pH, soil depth and drainage characteristics and light requirements should also be considered when selecting a tree for your landscape. Most trees prefer full sun but many, like dogwoods, are understory trees that prefer some shade. You may find you have several kinds of trees that will do well on your site. The last part is the best part. You get to select a new tree for your landscape. I have a variety of trees on my property and I enjoy all of them! The University of Florida has a great resource to help you select a tree at http://lyra.ifas.ufl.edu/ NorthernTrees/. How do I plant it? The tree should be planted in a hole that is at least 1.5 times wider than the root ball. It is very important not to plant the tree too deep. Plant the tree so that the top of the root ball is even with, or slightly higher than, the point where the top-most root emerges from the trunk. How often should I water my tree? I am glad you asked! You should water your newly planted tree every day that it doesnt rain for at least two weeks, and then at least twice a week for the next month or two. To learn more about tree watering, fertilizing, mulching, pruning and much more visit your county extension office or consult the University of Florida Web page at http://hort.ifas.ufl.edu/woody/ establishment.shtml. Jim DeValerio School-level winners participating in the countywide spelling bee were (front to back, left to right) Jaryn Box, Angelina Chapman, Connor Nugent, Michael Cody Sapp, Priscilla Wilson, Louis Bass, Heaven Coblentz, Sara Foster and Micah Wright.

Thats just the kind of man he was. The new sheriff has worked as assistant warden for the Florida Department of Corrections since 2009, most recently at Florida State Prison in Raiford. He previously served as senior prison inspector within the Office of Inspector General, as correctional services administrator, and as a law enforcement investigator for the State Fire Marshals Bureau of Fire and Arson Investigations. He received a bachelors degree in criminal justice from Florida State University. He was sworn in at the Union County Courthouse on Jan. 17. Thirty days ago, prior to Dec. 18, I had no idea I would be standing here, he said. While I ultimately knew that one day it was a life goal to become sheriff, after my father and grandfather, I also envisioned doing so with my father standing beside me. Standing here today, I know that it will not be easy, and nothing worth having is. But I draw strength from knowing that God makes no mistakesmy dads passing and that fact that Im standing here today must be Gods plan for Union County at this moment. SHERIFF Continued from 1A can afford to buy fancy bells and whistles, for example. The inequality of resources affects schools and districts as well as individual students. Another growing issue for judges and teachers alike is whether students approach a science problem of interest to them or whether theyve picked an easy science fair project from an Internet web site, just to complete the assignment. FAIR Continued from 1A Seventh-grader Patrice Myers wanted to know how much weight four grade A white eggs could hold before they broke. She guessed beforehand that it would be 10 pounds or so. To her surprise, the of weight were added. Daria Thornton found that darker colored candles burned more slowly than lighter worth with the darker colors, she said.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a rematch of last years District 5-2A championship match, but the Keystone Heights High School girls soccer team couldnt win its second straight title, losing 3-0 to Santa Fe on Jan. 17 in Gainesville. The Raiders (24-1) played a physical match that Keystone head coach Kenny Seneca said was no different from the teams two regular-season meetings, which Santa Fe won by scores of 4-2 and 2-0. Theyre a very physical team. The other two times we played them, they were physical, Seneca said, adding, Sometimes it gets in (the Keystone players) heads when it gets physical out there. Keystone (17-8-1) will have to travel to Ocala to play defending state champion Trinity Catholic in a regional quarterfinal match on Thursday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. Trinity Catholic (14-3-1), which earned the right to host by defeating Umatilla 8-0 for the District 6 championship, defeated the Indians 8-0 in last years regional semifinals. We played them last year, so we kind of know what to expect, Seneca said. Its going to be very challenging. Keystone and Santa Fe appeared as if they would play a scoreless first half, but the Raiders Kim Melton was in the right place at the right time, collecting a rebound and scoring after teammate Taylor Martin missed a shot directly in front of the goal. That put the Raiders up 1-0 with approximately Santa Fe defeats Keystone for District 5 championship 12 minutes remaining until halftime. We knew if we went out there and played our game, that we could beat them, Seneca said. It just didnt go our way tonight. They got a lucky break in the first half on their first goal and kind of got momentum from there. If things had one our way and we had gotten that break, you never know. The Indians set themselves up with a good scoring opportunity in the 18 th minute, with Julia Osteen and Raychel Trimble passing the ball back and forth down the field. Trimble received the ball inside the box, but was unable to get the ball past the Santa Fe goalie. Santa Fe had several good looks in the first half, but misfired on some opportunities, with Arzie making several nice See DISTRICT, 5B B-U Technical Center is proud owner of 2 new trucks BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Kirk Abercrombie and Robert Lyons are too old to ask Santa Claus for toy trucks. How about the real thing, then? The two men are the instructors for the Bradford-Union Technical Centers commercial vehicle driving program, which received a gift in the form of two semi trucks from Florida Gateway College. Christmas may have passed, but the timing was perfect for the technical center program. The three trucks students take out on the road each have at least 1 million miles. Christmas was a little less than a month ago, but this is truly Christmas in January, Bradford County Superintendent of Schools Chad Farnsworth said during a Jan. 17 reception and key exchange. Added Abercrombie: Its been a long time coming. Farnsworth and BradfordUnion Technical Center Director Christy Reddish both thanked Congressman Ted Yoho, who was present, for helping speed up the process. Approval of the transfer of titles had to be gained from the Department of Labor, which funded a grant Florida Gateway College used to purchase the vehicles. The request wound up sitting on a desk for months, Reddish said. Thats when Yoho stepped in. He helped them to understand how critical it was the timeliness of this transfer, Reddish said. We were towing our trucks in every other week See TRUCKS, 6B RIGHT: Madison Colaw (foreground) beats a Santa Fe player to the ball.

Prevatts serving food, fun in Starke BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Word on the street was the Prevatt family, which owned Prevatts Sports Bar and Grill in Middleburg, was going to open a restaurant in Starke. Jackson Prevatt and his son Brandon said they werent sure how those rumors started, but after hearing them they thought theyd take a ride to Starke and see if there was a location that would suit their purposes. The result made rumor become reality. The family, which also includes Jacksons son, Jason, opened its second restaurant located on Call Street in the former Mama Mias location in late November. We wanted to expand and take on new responsibilities and challenges, Brandon said. Brandon said the family kept getting asked all kinds of questions about opening a restaurant in Starke and even closing the restaurant in Middleburg. It was strange as the family had no plans of expanding at that point in time. We heard a bunch of different versions of how we were ultimately moving to Starke, and everybody was sure of it, Brandon said. We didnt want to let anybody down. Starke was at the top of Jackson Prevatts list anyway when it came to possible sites for a second restaurant. He was born and raised there. My dad was a preacher here in town and had a little church called Airpark, right there between the high school and the middle school, Jackson said. I grew up about a block from there on Collins Street off of Pratt (Street). I walked to every school Ive ever been to. I walked to Starke Elementary, walked to the middle school and then walked to the high school. Ive been here all my life up until I got to be an adult. It was Middleburg where Jacksons sons primarily grew up. The strip-mall site where the family opened the first Prevatts had been the site to a couple of different restaurants covering a period of more than 30 years. Brandon said the only reason those previous restaurants closed was health issues with the owners. It had proven it was going to do all right, Brandon said. Brandon said he and his brother used to hang out at the restaurant that preceded Prevatts, so they were familiar with the locale. The brothers, who had experience in sales, thought opening a restaurant there would be a fun thing to do. For Jackson, the business seemed like a good way to reconnect with his sons. His job in sales and marketing for Delta Airlines kept him away from See PREVATT, 4B Jolley graduates from Flagler College Kirksey graduates from basic training ABOVE: Jackson is pictured with sons Jason (left) and Brandon.

Photos courtesy of Patricia Cook. home. It just seemed like a great opportunity for us to be together, Jackson said. I mean, really, that was my whole goal just to spend time with them. The lack of restaurant experience and a bad time to open a business in light of the economy at the time did nothing to deter the family, which opened Prevatts Sports Bar & Grill approximately four years ago. We just jumped in like idiots, Brandon said, laughing, with Jackson adding, Yeah, were not the smartest group in town. We just decided to go with it. The start of the restaurant kept Brandon pretty busy. When we first opened the restaurant, technically Dad was still working full time for Delta, and my brother was still working full time for a mortgage company, he said. I ran the restaurant pretty much night and day and lived in it for about a year. I dont think we really had time to figure out if we were successful or not. We just kind of rolled with it. There was just a ton of stuff to do all the time. Now, theres a lot of work involved in trying to get a second restaurant established. You constantly have something to do, Brandon said. Theres a lot of responsibility. Not only that, to have a successful restaurant in these smaller towns, you have to provide the customers with entertainment and things to do. Just coming and eating dinner isnt enough. Prevatts hosts poker and pool tournaments, for example, and offers cornhole on Tuesday nights. Live music is also a staple of Prevatts. We want you to come in and eat, but we want you to hang out for a little while, too, Brandon said. Grab a beer, enjoy your friends, watch some sports, play a game. Offering various activities and entertainment does not mean the Prevatt family members do not take pride in the food they serve. Prevatts cuts its own chicken strips and steaks, and makes its own sauces and dressings. Everything is cooked to order. We cook everything fresh, Brandon said. Theres nothing under a heat lamp ever. The menu offers the usual items you would find in any similar restaurant, but there are differences. We tried to make it a little different than your typical sports bar that specializes in wings and burgers, Jackson said. I mean, we have those, and we have very good ones, but we came up with stuffed potatoes, which you dont see in many other places. Brandon said the common belief is the simpler the menu, the better. Well, that doesnt Vendor applications are now being accepted through the end of February for the Bradford County Fair, which is scheduled for March 11-16. (The side gates of the livestock barn will be open on March 8 for the annual 4-H goat show.)

Important info for 2014 Bradford County Fair PREVATT Continued from 2B necessarily work in a small town where some people are apt to eat at a restaurant almost every day. Therefore, Prevatts offers quite an extensive list of items as well as rotating daily specials. We have options, Brandon said. If you cant find three or four things on our menu you like, you might not like food much. For the Prevatts, Starke is home; Middleburg is home. They want their restaurants to feel like home. Its why Jackson says employees work with the Prevatts instead of for the Prevatts. I dont really ever look as anybody working for me, Jackson said. They work with us. We make it more of a family. Youre part of it. Youre not just an employee; youre part of this place. The same goes for those who choose to stop and dine. The Prevatts want to chat with you and get to know you if they dont already. Really, thats what makes the effort required to run a restaurant worth it. Its a lot of hard work, but its fun work, Brandon said. Its not really hard to get up and go hang out with your friends. In the end, the Prevatt family members want to be more than restaurant owners. They want to become immersed in the communities they serve. You dont want to just be a business, Jackson said. You want to be part of the fabric of what makes the community what it is. To do that, you need to participate. You need to be part of it. It seems the Prevatts were destined to become a part of the Starke community. They dont know how those rumors of opening a restaurant in Starke began, but theyre happy to now be there. Its like coming back home, Jackson said.

Congressman Yoho made contact with the Department of Labor and told them of our predicament. He encouraged them to make a timely approval and transfer. The very next week, we had the go-ahead. Added Farnsworth: I want to thank him for his efforts in facilitating this transfer and help everyone understand this guy is truly dedicated to Bradford County. For his part, Yoho said he was excited to be able to partake in the transfer of the keys. This is an awesome thing. However, he deflected a lot of the credit to Clay Martin, his district director. Clays one of those guys who sits in the background, Yoho said. You dont hear much from him, but hes a worker. He does a lot of work. He gets things done. He knows how to work stuff through the system. Reddish said thanks also go to Florida Gateway Colleges Tracy Hickman (vice president, operational programs), who was also present for the Jan. 17 key exchange. Florida Gateway College once offered a truck-driving program, but it was last offered approximately two years ago, Reddish said. The two trucks the Bradford-Union Technical Center received from the college are 2008 models and each has approximately 21,000 miles on it. (The three road trucks the center has been using are 2000 models.) Theyre not really broken in until about 100,000 miles, so theyre brand new to us, Abercrombie said. They still smell new inside. Now, the three trucks the Bradford-Union Technical Center was taking out on the road can be utilized strictly for training at the schools driving range. It worked out good because I dont know if the other ones couldve made it on the road for another class, Abercrombie said. Every student gets 1,000 miles (on the road). Right now, we have 12 students. Farnsworth and Yoho both took an opportunity to look at the big picture. Farnsworth said the Bradford-Union Technical Centers commercial vehicle driving program has a graduation percentage in the high 90s and an employment rate of 100 percent, with many students getting TRUCKS Continued from 1B hired prior to the programs completion. What our community will thrive on is putting people to work and helping people get behind the wheels of these trucks, Farnsworth said. Currently, there are over 500,000 jobs across the United States in truck driving. For our community to be able to tap into those opportunities its just immeasurable the impact that can have. Yoho said the commercial vehicle driving program is part of the backbone of this country and is key to making this part of the state recession proof. Has anybody here ever bought anything? We go to a store, right? That stuff just doesnt show up there, Yoho said. Its got to be driven there. The freight line and the truckers are the backbone of getting product around this country. Yeah, the rails are out there, too, and they do a fantastic job, but its got to go from the rail to the store. If it wasnt for the truckers of this great country of ours and our road system, we Robert Lyons, one of the Bradford-Union Technical on as somebody checks out the inside of one of the wouldnt have the convenience and the products we have on our shelves. These programs are so important. It creates jobs. It makes this community stronger. Our goal is to make North Central Floridathe Third Congressional District of Floridathe economic driver, not just for the state, but for the Southeast. The commercial vehicle driving program at the BradfordUnion Technical Center has been helping supply drivers toward that end since the 1970s. It was the first truck-driving program in the state of Florida, Farnsworth said. Thats saying a lot. The fact that were honoring this program with two beautiful, new trucks is just a great thing to see. It was an event to match the a childs excitement of waking up on Dec. 25. Like the superintendent said, its like Christmas all over again, Reddish said. We couldnt believe it. We were pinching ourselves on (Jan. 15) when we actually transferred the titles.

8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014 Fins, Fur & Tails Ever since the age of 12, Jeff Fitts has been a resident of Keystone Heights and an avid outdoorsman. Fitts wife is a teacher in Gainesville, and his two daughters are attending the University of Florida. Also, his son is a junior at Keystone Heights High School. Well diversified, but solid outdoors seems to be a good description of Fitts. Even his self-employment work of removing unwanted vegetation like lake grass is easily scheduled around his guide trips and fishing tournaments. During the winter, he likes passion for the outdoors to hunt and guide for turkey. Throughout the year, he is a competitive bass fisherman with the Rayovac FLW professional series. As if that wasnt enough, he guides and hunts alligators during the summer. If he had to choose between those activities, he would probably be in trouble, but he admitted that he has a really strong passion for bass fishing. When prodded about other outdoors activities, Fitts indicated that he had worked with Shaw Grigsby and Kim Stricker on some television programs. Apparently, Fitts provides information and equipment for their camera crews. In looking for ideas that would be helpful for the nonprofessional fisherman, Fitts indicated that, foremost, you have to know the water you are fishing. According to Fitts, professionals will gather as much information about the target water from people who have firsthand experience along with information like strategic features that can be gathered from the Internet. Lastly, all good professionals will try to pre-fish the target water prior to the tournament. Another suggestion Fitts gives fishermen and hunters is to fish and hunt according to the solunar charts. He emphatically stresses that one can surely see more game activity during the major and minor feeding times. When asked about a correlation between cattle grazing and fish/ game activity, he was careful to not dismiss it, but he did say that he thought wild game and birds would be a better indicator than domestic cattle. Fitts is an honest outdoorsman who truly knows his business, and he works hard at making the activities he is passionate about into a living. If you ever want some assistance or want to entertain a friend with turkey hunting, bass fishing, crappie fishing or alligator hunting, this man can help. Coyotes are the talk at Crosshorn meeting Lauren Watine, a biologist with the University of Florida, was the guest speaker at the Jan. 17 Crosshorn Ministries meeting. Watine covered the results of a two-year study on the impact of coyote predation on the local wildlife population. The study leaves little doubt that the coyote is having no good influence on our native wildlife. Fifty years ago, coyotes did not venture east of the Mississippi, but today they inhabit the United States from the west coast to the east coast. The expanded population is due primarily to foxhunters importing the canines to be used by hunters to chase with deerhounds. Unfortunately, the coyotes, having escaped or been released, are now an apex predator that can decimate native wildlife such as deer, turkeys and quail. The presentation was very informative, and the next Crosshorn Ministries meeting will be on March 27 at 7 p.m. at the Starke Golf and Country Club. Outdoors outlook Springtime is just around the corner. Many of our small wildlife are already getting romantic or will be in the next month. Watch out on the roads at night for foxes, bobcats, raccoons and skunks. They are like teenage humans at this time of the year and somewhat irrational. Likewise, many of the songbirds will also become territorial. Woodpeckers will start drumming their amorous tunes on trees, posts and even housing metal. The crappie spawn will soon be over, and bass will soon be fanning. For just a little longer, the crappie bite will maintain its number-one spot in the freshwater fishing worldat least until the bass start fanning. Appropriately so, the professional USA Crappie Tournament was held on Jan 18 at Crecsent Lake near Palatka. T.C. Lloyd, a local crappie resource and guide from Middleburg who fished the tournament, tells us that the crappie spawn is still delayed this year due to the cold, and he names Newnans Lake as the best performing crappie lake in our area. If you are interested in bow fishing or freshwater sight fishing, this is a great time of the year. Mullet and tilapia are attracted to the relatively warm water of the spring runs that eventually connect to the east and west coasts. The two fish are easily seen, and the tilapia are easily hit with a fishing bow. The mullet are much harder to target with arrows, but they readily bite small, natural baits and small flies. Once hooked, they provide a great fight. Tight lines and safe hunting until next week.
