Tomlinson Business Person of the Year Award was Chrissy Allen Thompson (far chamber President Pam Whittle. BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The 2014 Board of Governors for the North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce was introduced at the chambers annual meeting and banquet, and several business leaders and supporters were honored, including the late Marvin Pritchett. Pritchett was posthumously recognized as Citizen of the Year, an award named for former Bradford County Telegraph publisher Eugene L. Matthews. Emcee Terry Vaughan said Pritchett, born in 1933, overcame the early loss of his parents, and from a football star at Union County High, he went on serve his county in the military, his family and his community. Vaughan called him a patriot, a devoted family man, a philanthropist and a respected businessman, who founded Pritchett Trucking in 1973 and Nextran Corporation in 1992. His career also included his role as one of CNB Banks founders, and his leadership in the farming, cattle, forestry and mining industries. He was also a community leader, serving as both a county commissioner and school board member. Generosity was his trademark as countless school-related and community projects were funded due to his philosophy of giving back, and his many years of faithful service to the First Christian Church in Lake Butler is well documented, Vaughan said. He was the go-to person if something needed to be done and he was always ready to roll up his sleeves and jump in full force. Bradford Superintendent of Schools Chad Farnsworth assists the education foundation in auctioning off something. Another man charged with abuse BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County Sheriffs Office has arrested another individual for sexually abusing a child. Jeremy Alan Hicks, 35, was arrested and charged with capital sexual battery on a child less than 12 years of age. The crime came to light when the victim stepped forward last October and disclosed the abuse. The victim told investigators that the abuse began around 2005, when the victim was just 8 years old, and continued for several years. Upon being interviewed on Jan. 29, Hicks reportedly confessed to several counts of sexual battery against the child. Hicks was still incarcerated at the Bradford County Jail as of press time. Bond was set at $100,000. Hicks has an arrest record that includes convictions for battery, dealing in stolen property and issuing a worthless check. Jeremy Alan Hicks Graham wants to succeed mom on school board BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Southside Elementary School Principal Lisa Graham said she would not seek of seventh term on the Clay County School Board. When her current term ends later this year, her 24 years of service on the school board will have tied the longest tenure of any Clay County School Board member. Graham said that since she first took office in 1990, she has served with 14 board members and five superintendents. She added that over that time, graduation rates have increased, career academies have expanded, and Clay County schools have been consistently ranked among the best in Florida. Six successful elections, however, are enough for me, she wrote in a statement. I have decided that I will not seek reelection this year, believing it is time for new leadership and fresh ideas. I thank all who have helped me throughout my careermy family, friends, the amazing staff of the Clay County School District, as well as the parents, students, and taxpayers of Clay County. On the same day Lisa Graham made her announcement, her son Brian H. Graham filed papers with the Clay County Supervisor of Elections office to run for his mothers seat. Currently, he is the community relations coordinator for the Bradford County School District, a member of the Clay County Soil and Water Conservation District and a managing partner in the political consulting firm of Dixie Strategies LLC. District 5 covers parts of Green Cove Springs, Middleburg and Lake Asbury. Two other candidates have also filed for the District 5 seat. Sandra Dunnavant is a retired educator and current substitute teacher in the Clay County School District. She served on the Green Cove Springs City Council from 1987-1994 and is also a former mayor and vice mayor of the municipality. Four days after she filed papers to run for Grahams seat on Jan. 21, Dunnavant took in a $1,000 campaign contribution from the Clay Education Political Action Committee. Keith Nichols has also filed papers to run for the seat. Over the past year, Nichols has used the public comments portion of district school board meetings to criticize Superintendent Charlie Van Zant and other administrators. County, TDC debate grant funds BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Who should be eligible for economic development support was the unexpected topic at Mondays county commission meeting. An application from Pat Welch for a Tourist Development Council grant to help promote a competition at the Bradford Sportsmens Farm had some trouble even making the agenda. Thenunlike a similar application for the Bradford County Fair, which won quick approval it looked like most of the board would withhold support for the Sportsmens Farms shooting event when a motion to approve by Commissioner Lila Sellars didnt receive an immediate second. Sellars sits on the TDC board, which had already voted to recommend approval of the application. The rest of the commission was hesitant to award the grant to a business. North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce President Pam Whittle said this was the first application from the Bradford Sportsmens Farm, but not their first event. Theyve been attracting visitors who spend money in Bradford County for years. According to his application, Welch said the 2014 Florida Challenge, scheduled for Feb. 27-March 2, should bring in around 300 shooters and their families, and many will rent local rooms and eat in local restaurants. Whittle said a letter from hotel owner Sam Patel confirmed his rooms would be filled. Even if there is an economic benefit, why does the county spend money to support such events? Well, it doesnt. It isnt local property tax dollars that fund the Tourism Development Council Grants. Instead, the county levys a tax on overnight accommodations at hotels See GRANT, 8A See CHAMBER, 2A

Gratefully accepting the award on their fathers behalf were Jon and Robin Pritchett. Many of you knew our dad, Jon Pritchett said, and he did love his community. He worked very, very hard. He worked even harder to give back to his community, so Robin, Phillip and I couldnt be more proud to be his children. The loss of Pritchett and Sheriff Jerry Whitehead made it a trying year for Union County and its neighbors, Vaughan said. Two community icons unexpectedly and tragically went on to their reward in heaven, he said. Whiteheads giving spirit and hearty handshake will be missed, he added, saying the Whitehead family legacy would be carried on by his son, Brad, the recently appointed sheriff of Union County. Vaughan also talked about the passing of Jerome Johns, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Community State Bank, who served an unprecedented three terms as chair of the chamber board in addition to his work on economic development. This body owes Jerome a great debt of gratitude for his life service, to include a commitment to the chamber few can match, he said. The J.E. Tomlinson Business Person of the Year Award went to Chrissy Allen Thompson, who Vaughan said was a driving force in the continued development of downtown Starke, most recently moving her restaurant to a larger location and turning The Downtown Grill into a hub of activity. Always willing to accommodate, her can-do spirit is always on display. She serves as a mentor to those who work for her, as she has been a great source of inspiration for so many young lives, Vaughan said. He also pointed to her involvement with the chamber, Main Street, Altrusa, Rotary, Kiwanis, scouting, Special Olympics, the school system and other organizations as proof of her civic commitment. Thompson said she wasnt sure she alone deserved the award, giving credit to her husband, Ricky Thompson, who is always willing to green light her crazy ideas. Together they divide and conquer whatever challenge they take on, she said. She said she was proud of her three kids for the great job they do helping out, and she thanked her staff for making her job easier. Thompson also expressed her appreciation for Virgil Berry for teaching her everything she knows about business. You just dont know how special it is to have you guys as family and friends and always supporting The Downtown Grill, Chrissys and all of the other endeavors we do, she said. Vaughan compared the chambers Volunteer of the Year award winner to a Temptations classic, saying B.J. Warwick was like sunshine on a cloudy day. Her mischievous laugh and outgoing personality can certainly brighten and warm any occasion, he said. She has been a tireless volunteer on a variety of fronts for as long as I have known her, but her amazing efforts on behalf of finding a cure for cancer have been front and center for many years. Warwick, a cancer survivor, is a driving force behind the local Relay for Life, Vaughan said, and she is organizing a dance for later this month that will benefit the event. She has also led the way for so many causes related to her position in conjunction with the National Guard, he said. Warwick gave credit to her late sister. If it wasnt for my sister, Ida Sue, I wouldnt be here to day, she said. The chamber also honored two businesses, the first being Lake Area Physical Therapy and Aquatics. It has been around and growing for 28 years, and now offers services in Starke, Keystone Heights, Melrose and Gainesville. Owner Laura Hodges lays deep roots in the communities she serves, Vaughan said, pointing to her roles in local business associations and the Lake Area Elder Council. Many thankful citizens sing their praises due to the caring and effective work they do in the field of physical, occupational, speech, sports, stroke rehabilitation, and more, he said. Hodges accepted the award along with Rhonda Hamilton, her marketing director, who she thanked for her enthusiasm, along with the chamber members and staff. Roberts Insurance was the second Business of the Year recognized. Of Scott Roberts, Vaughan said, If there is a cause, he stands willing to help and provide leadership. His affiliations include the chamber, The Arc of Bradford County, Kiwanis, Rotary, the Masonic Lodge, Communities in Schools, the board at Shands Starke and the Bradford County Education Foundation. Roberts Insurance does business in Starke, Keystone, Lake Butler and now Middleburg, and is one of the most respected names in the field, Vaughan said. He believes that clients deserve to be represented by someone who strives to create a relationship, so if you have that accident or if your home is damaged by a storm, you have a friend you know on a first-name basis to turn to for help, he said. Roberts thanked his parents, George and Nancy Roberts, and his incredible staff, without Volunteer of the Year B.J. Warwick with chamber President Pam Whittle.

The chamber hired her in 2006 to work on business services and assist employers with finding incentives and grants.

4A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014 HCA High School Principal Tori Schenck with Joe Shea WWII vet tells students his story BY VIRGINIA DENMARK Hope Christian Academy After suffering a series of mini strokes and spending the Christmas holiday in the hospital, 89-year-old World War II veteran Joe Shea turned an almost missed opportunity into a morning sharing life stories with students at Hope Christian Academy. Shea said he realized, I am here because the dear Lord is not finished with me yet, and I want to go talk to the students. Born in 1924 in Mission, Texas, Shea and his family moved to Iowa where he was the self-proclaimed scrawniest kid in school. That did not deter him from his dream, though: to become a P51 Mustang fighter pilot. I was a good one, he said, and my belief in God protected me. Shea shared one war story of how he had been instructed to turn off his guns after a mission. I followed the instructions and a few moments later a German jet planeflying two times faster than I in my cruise mode slipped up on me. The clouds forming in front of me were the cannon shells exploding, and I knew I was being shot at. Interestingly, Shea said he was not afraid and was able to take corrective actions, but he still did not turn on his .50-caliber machine guns. It had to be a work of God because the German jet pilot was firing and missing, and we even came eyeball to eyeball, he said. Shea said everyone survived that mission and all had bullet holes in their planes except me. He flew 27 missions before the war ended. Shea encouraged the students that they can be anything they want to be. He shared an example about his daughter who at the age of five severely burned her hand. She tripped over the edge of a bonfire from the previous night and received third-degree burns and horribly disfigured her thumb, he said. Her dream was to become a pianist, so he said she practiced and practiced and eventually became a concert pianist. Follow your dream, he said confidently, and be what you want to become. Programs have funds to support businesses BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph Community leaders eager to learn about state programs and resources available to support local economic development crowded into an upstairs classroom at Santa Fe Colleges Andrews Center on Jan. 22, continuing the work of Envision Bradford 2023. Dug Jones, associate vice president for economic development at the college, welcomed those present and introduced representatives from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, including Bob Dennis, community program manager; Brook Pace, development representative supervisor; and Valerie Jenkins, community planning. The programs discussed at the meeting are designed to assist low-income communities and low-income community businesses. Jenkins spoke about technical assistance grants that are open for application May through July. These grants are funded by documentary stamp taxes, the amount set by legislature each year. They average about $2,500 each. Pace explained three programs that fall under the State Small Business Credit Initiative, which was signed into law through the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 and is administered by the U.S Department of Treasury. These programs are designed to fund startup costs, working capital, business acquisitions, franchise financing, equipment loans, inventory financing and construction. A variety of restrictions apply. The three programs highlighted by Pace were the Florida Capital Access Program, valued at $10.9 million; Florida Venture Capital Program, valued at $43.5 million; and Small Business Loan Support Program, valued at $43.5 million. Florida Capital Access Program is a loan portfolio insurance program for lenders to help mitigate the risk for small business loans. Both the lender and the state contribute to a reserve fund for all enrolled loans. If the loan goes bad the lender can make a claim on the reserve fund to cover its loss. Capital City Bank, which was represented at the meeting, participates in this program. Florida Venture Capital provides equity financing to emerging Florida companies with perceived long-term growth potential. The Small Business Loan Support Program is designed to mitigate the risks of making small business loans by offering lenders credit enhancement tools such as loan guarantees and loan participations, up to 80 percent. Pace provided a list of Florida businesses that have benefitted from State Small Business Credit Initiative, which included Hitchcocks Market and Goodwill Industries of southwest Florida. Dennis addressed the group about the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program, which was created in 1974 to provide funding for economic development, community revitalization and housing rehabilitation. More information is available at floridajobs.org/communityplanning-and-development.

Created Equal: Civil rights at library To mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.s March on Washington and Black History Month the Bradford County Friends of the Library will be showing four documentaries about the history of civil rights in America. Created Equal: Americas Civil Rights Struggle is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities that uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion of Americas civil rights history. NEH has partnered with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to develop programmatic and support materials. The Friends of the Library is one of 473 institutions across the country awarded a set of four films chronicling the history of the civil rights movement. The powerful documentaries The Abolitionists, Slavery by Another Name, Freedom Riders and The Loving Story include dramatic scenes of incidents in the 150-year effort to achieve equal rights for all. Freedom Riders received an Emmy in 2012, and The Loving Story and The Abolitionists have been nominated for Emmys in 2013. Each of the films was produced with NEH support, and each tells remarkable stories of individuals who challenged the social and legal status quo of deeply rooted institutions, from slavery to segregation. Created Equal programs bring communities together to revisit our shared history and help bridge deep racial and cultural divides in American civic life. Visit www. neh.gov/created-equal for more information. The Friends of the Library program will offer the films on four Tuesday evenings from 6 to 7:30 p.m. beginning on Feb. 18 at the Bradford County Library starting with The Abolitionists. These films chronicle the long and sometimes violent effort to achieve the rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independencelife, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, said Paul Still. We are pleased to receive a grant from NEH to provide programming around these films. In addition to presenting these films and discussions at the library, we are looking for churches or other organizations who would be willing to host a film showing. The grant we received provides the film(s), suggested discussion guides and funding for some of the costs of the hosts. Contact Paul Still at 904-3680291 or stillpe@aol.com for more information or to schedule a showing of one or all of the films in the series. The Created Equal film set is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Womans Club throwing Mardi Gras party The Mardi Gras Bash will be one of the premier events of the year hosted by the Womans Club of Starke. Lots of fun, food and live music are planned for a spectacular evening that you will not want to miss. The event will take place Friday, Feb. 28, at 6 p.m. at the Womans Club. Tickets are $30, or $50 for a couple, and can be purchased from any Womans Club member. Funds raised at this event will be used towards the preservation and restoration of the historical clubhouse as well as funding activities supporting the young women of Bradford County.

Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Laurie Compton at lcompton@ufl.edu February gardening tips Planting suggestions Temperatures will likely drop to freezing this month, so if you decide to add new bedding plants to the garden they must be able to withstand cold. Some plants that can take a chill: dianthus, pansy, viola and dusty miller. There are many bulbs that can be planted now, but be sure to provide adequate water to get them established and protect them from cold weather with mulch. Some to try are dahlias, crinum and agapanthus. Many trees and shrubs will be in bloom including red maple, spirea and star magnolia. February is the time to plant potatoes. Buy healthy seed pieces from a local nursery and plant 3 inches deep. Do not add lime to the potato planting bed. Things to do Cold weather can damage palms, but proper care may prevent loss of the palm and encourage recovery. For more information, call the Bradford County Extension Office. Roses should be pruned this month to remove damaged canes and improve the overall form. After pruning, fertilize and apply a fresh layer of mulch. Blooming will begin eight to nine weeks after pruning. Be sure that you know the height and spread of any shrubs you plan to install. Not all shrubs are suitable for planting next to homes or under windows. The rule of thumb is to plant your shrub onehalf the mature width plus 1 foot away from the house. After temps rise to 65 degrees for four to five days, apply a pre-emergent weed killer (not a weed and feed fertilizer) to lawns this month to prevent warm season weeds. Timing is important for good control. If not done in January, fertilize citrus and other fruit trees now. Frequency and amount of fertilization depends on the age of the tree. Call the Bradford County Extension office for more information. Wildlife activity in February Early purple martin scouts will start to appear in Florida this month. Ospreys will begin nesting in north Florida near the end of the month. Swallow-tailed kites begin returning to Florida from South America. Pocket gophers begin their spring breeding season. Did You Know? Pocket gophers are known to excavate extensive tunnel systems (some greater than 500 feet in length). Research suggests that gopher tunnels serve as an important shelter for a variety of animal species. Typical burrow inhabitants include many insects (some are exceptionally rare), salamanders, frogs, lizards, snakes and small mammals.

At least half of the applicants were hired to positions with her help. The chamber bid farewell to Tommy Tomlinson, who was this years departing board member. Chamber board Chair Jennie Reed (outgoing) said Tomlinson always stepped up when called up and has been a great mentor. Tomlinson thanked the chamber for the opportunity. One thing Ive learned over the years, if we will just work with one another in southwestern Clay County, Bradford County and Union County, (its) how much we can do to bring success to these counties, he said. The chamber once again hosted the Bradford County Education Foundations annual silent and live auctions. Foundation President Dimple Overstreet talked about how the money raised benefits schools, including purchasing books for students, and she thanked chamber members for their help. I would like say for the whole board, thank you from the deepest part of our hearts, and the children of the schools say thank you, she said. Speaking of charity to schools, Murray Fords Amir Asadi and Amy Hoglund presented a check for more than $5,000 to Bradford High School, raised through a driving event at the school. Asadi said that while the dealership began at a time of economic uncertainty, the support of the community has resulted in more sales than stores in Gainesville, Lake City and Green Cove Springs. Because of that, they have an obligation to give back, he said. The Drive 4 UR School event is held annually with the help of the schools teachers and administrators, Asadi said. Money is donated for each individual who goes to the school to test drive a vehicle.

Chamber board Chair Jennie Reed (outgoing), President Pam Whittle and Susan Norman, recipient of the Workforce Award. Workforce boards get new names BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The annual chamber banquet served as an opportunity to usher in a new, unified identity of the states various workforce boards. As of Feb. 10, the rebranding is official and FloridaWorks, the workforce agency serving Bradford and Alachua County, and all of the other workforce agencies around the state will be known as CareerSource Florida. Each regional agency will have its own designation, such as Career Source North Central Florida for Bradford and its partners, CareerSource Northeast Florida for Clay and its partners, and CareerSource Florida Crown for Union and its partners. Chamber President Pam Whittle said the new name and logo may be a new look, but the same important services will be provided, including matching jobseekers and employers. and motels colloquially known as the bed tax, and that revenue is to be spent on purposes that increase tourism and economic development. According to the grant application, an eligible event is an event or series of events having an economic impact or an impact on tourism, which also has the following characteristics: 1. It has growth potential and the grant funds can be useful as seed money. 2. The event is celebratory, historical, cultural or multicultural. 3. The event is likely to generate media exposure. 4. The event will be free or available at a nominal fee to the public. 5. The event attracts outof-town guests to occupy hotel/motel rooms. TDC doesnt just write a check when an application is submitted, but interviews applicants and examines the events budget before and after the event. The maximum amount available for anyone is $5,000, and TDC tells applicants they may be requested to return a portion or all of the grant award if the event generates a profit. While TDC does inquire if the applicant is a nonprofit entity, being nonprofit is not a requirement for the award. Commissioner Eddie Lewis asked about the criteria. Saying he thought this was the first request from an outside sourcemeaning someone not affiliated with the fair association or chamber sponsored festivals that usually receive supporthe wanted to know how requests from others would be dealt with when they start rolling in. Whittle said that is part of TDCs job, to screen applications and recommend for approval those that qualify. The goal is to advertise the county and attract tourists, she said, and much of the grant funding is spent on media buys to get the word out about what is happening in Bradford County. TDC Board Chairman John Miller, publisher of the Bradford County Telegraph, said the owners had invested their own money over the years, not just to establish and grow the event, but to build a facility that has grown in value. Other businesses benefit, but so does the county through the additional tax revenue. A look at its schedule shows the farm is hosting some event or class nearly every week over the next several months, including The Florida State Shoot in April. He does put heads in beds. He does make cash registers ring. Thats our purpose, Miller said. Its a mission the county commission has to share, he added. Commissioner Ross Chandler was concerned about awarding funding to businesses, too, saying there are many others that are now going to want their piece. Are we going to treat them all the same, because the dollars may not be there? he asked That was a budgeting matter, Miller said, even asserting that TDC was more conservative when it comes to spending than the county commission. Be progressive. Be for the county, he said. Sellars said this would not be the first time a for-profit entity would receive funding, and TDC would consider any application that met the requirements, pending the availability of funds. The commission voted 4-1 to approve the $5,000 grant application, with Danny Riddick, chairman of the board, dissenting. He said was disappointed when TDC didnt take his suggestion to send $4,000 to the regional planning council to promote events in Bradford County like fishing tournaments, horse shows and a motorsports park that no one knows about. Thats something Chandler also wanted TDC to reconsider. GRANT Continued from 1A

Funderburk, Griffis, Forsyth, Kahakua-Lodivero and Addison earned the right to participate in regional competition. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Five Bradford High School wrestlers earned the right to compete at the regional level after their performances at the District 4-1A meet, which was held at Episcopal High School in Jacksonville last weekend. Those five wrestlers performances equated to a fourth-place finish in the team standings. Bradford finished with 98 points behind Bishop Kenny (164.5), Bolles (151.5) and University Christian (136). They were bound and determined to make a mark, Bradford coach Chris Adams said. Three Bradford wrestlers See DISTRICT, 3B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Are you confused about Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum plans or advanced premium tax credits? Maybe youve never had health insurance and are unsure about such terminology as deductibles and out-ofpocket expenses. Debbie Allen and Staci Griffis are here to help you with your questions about the Affordable Care Act and to help you with your Marketplace application. They are certified application counselors through New River Community Health Care Inc. and have offices at the health departments in Bradford and Union counties. Griffis said she and Allen are not to be confused with navigators, whose efforts are more in the vein of community outreach. Though Griffis and Allen do participate in outreach efforts, their grant-funded counselor positions were created to give people one-on-one help. Were here with all your answers and can help you get through it, Griffis said. Perhaps you attempted to create a Marketplace account via the website HealthCare.gov when it first went online. As you know from experience or most likely heard, the website had quite a few glitches and was unable to handle the traffic at its onset. If you unsuccessfully created an account or partially created one, Griffis and Allen can help you now do so successfully. Plus, it really doesnt take that long. The benefits of coming (to see us) is the fact the website is fully functional, Griffis said. It takes about 20 minutes to complete the application. Of course, you can create an account yourself, but Griffis said people may not properly factor in any of the help they may be eligible for in the form of advanced premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions. Plus, sometimes its just easier to understand when someone goes through the process with you. You can hear the term advanced premium tax credit, but its easier to be able to show them on the screen, Griffis said. Some people have been surprised to see how much insurance they can actually get for their dollars, no matter what their views of the Affordable Care Act are. Griffis said the latest numbers revealed that 83 percent of Floridians choosing plans through the Marketplace qualified for financial assistance of some sort. It has a lot of positive to it, Allen said. People dont necessarily hear that, but once they come and they sit one on one, we can educate them. They see it through the systems themselves. They see that it really benefits them. At first, Griffis said most of the people she counseled were those who received letters that their current policies were being Counselors are here to help with Health Insurance Marketplace questions and guide you through the Health Insurance Marketplace and HealthCare.gov at the Bradford County and Union County health departments. canceled.

won the championships of their respective weight classes: Shayne Kahakua-Lodivero in the 106 class, J.T. Griffis in the 113 class and Jarrai Forsyth in the 160 class. It was a relatively quick tournament for KahakuaLodivero, who pinned Bishop Kennys Ryan Timmons in 48 seconds in the 106 finals. The result was similar to all his other matches in the tournament pins that took little time. He probably spent no more than a minute and a half total on the mat, Adams said, adding, He was just going out there with a mission. Kahakua-Lodivero, a sophomore, improved to 27-7 on the year. Boasting a similar record is teammate Griffis, a sophomore who is 32-4. All four of Griffis losses have come against opponents who are ranked in the state. Griffis, who placed third at last years district meet, was one match away from the state finals last year. Adams said, I have high expectations hell place this year. A 12-9 win over Duval Charters Daniel Porter propelled Griffis one step closer to state. Griffis, who pinned all of his opponents leading up to the final match, has more heart than any wrestler hes ever seen, Adams said. The coach described Griffis as someone who makes no excuses for what goes wrong in a match. He merely watches video afterward and then does what he needs to do to fix it. I have high expectations hell place (at state) this year, Adams said. Forsyth is no stranger to the stage at state. The senior has qualified the last two years, so its probably no surprise that he seems to be on his way to a third appearance. His first step was winning the District 4 championship in the 160 class by pinning University Christians Daniel Folkner in 4:20. It was Forsyths third straight district championship. Hes handled expectations well, Adams said of Forsyth, who is 33-0 and seeded second at the state level in his weight class. Forsyth has a tough matchup waiting for him at the regional meet in Suwannees Shawn Brown, who is seeded number one in the state. However, Forsyth sounds as if hes not going to let anyone stand in his way of getting back to state. He had a disappointing showing last year due to illness and is determined to win it all this year. Adams said thats what Forsyth has been telling him every day. Joining the three district champions at the Region 1 meet, which will be held Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7-8, at Jacksonvilles Bishop Snyder High School, are Brandon Funderburk and Blake Addison. Each placed third in his respective weight class.

Hes determined to get a victory. Addison is a freshman who is 14-15. He earned his thirdplace finish in the 132 class by pinning University Christians Dale Glies in 3:00. He hasnt placed in a tournament (all season), Adams said, but when it mattered, he stepped up. Addison, who had two additional pins leading up to the consolation finals, has been good at soaking up everything he needs to know during his first year of wrestling. Adams said if Addison sticks with the sport, hell eventually be a state champion. Who makes it to this years state finals remains to be seen, but as you can probably tell, their coach has the utmost confidence in their abilities. They have his admiration as well. I love these boys with all my heart, Adams said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School got the rematch it wanted, but in the end, it was Eastside coming out victorious again as Tyler Miller-Jones scored a pair of second-half goals in an approximate three-minute span to lift the host Rams to a 2-1 win over the Indians in a Class 2A boys soccer regional semifinal match on Feb. 4. We played well enough to win, Keystone head coach Trevor Waters said. It just didnt happen. Keystone (22-4-2) lost 1-0 to Eastside in the District 5 championship match, but the Indians went on the road and defeated Mount Dora 3-1 in the regional quarterfinals to return to Citizens Field and get another shot at the Rams. Miller-Jones, who scored the lone goal in the District 5 championship match, fired off a rocket of a shot after the firsthalf water break, but Keystone goalie Eric Wood was able to make a save. Approximately eight minutes later, the Indians Nacho Grimaldo passed the ball downfield to Wyatt Graziano, who launched a shot over the challenging goalie to put Keystone up 1-0. That would be the only score for the Indians, who were playing their second straight match without leading scorer Cory Hedding, who was out with a foot injury. Not an excuse, Waters said. Eastside played very well tonight. In the 57 th and 60 th minutes, Miller-Jones misfired on a couple of shot attempts. However, he found the mark in the 61 st minute to tie the score before adding another goal in the 64 th minute. Hes just a superstar, Waters said of Miller-Jones. He can play anywhere. Hes the fastest kid Ive ever seen play high school soccer in this area. Waters said he was proud of his teams effortnot just against Eastside, but also in the quarterfinals against Mount Dora. When you lose in the district finals, its very disappointing to the whole team, Waters said. Its very hard to come back and win that next game. Its so much easier if you win the finals. Then you come back, and youre on top of the world. This team showed me such great heart. Eastside (20-6) will host Bishop Moore for the Region 2 championship on Friday, Feb. 7.

Sullivan, Newmans to wed in March Dear Editor: One thing is increasingly clear about elections these days voters overwhelmingly dislike negative campaigning and are troubled by its widespread use. In the Monitor two weeks ago, Keystone Vice Mayor Tony Brown kicked off his campaign for mayor by opening with a negative personal attack on his opponent, incumbent Mayor Mary Lou Hildreth. Brown stated his negative remarks and then closed by making the claim he was going to run a positive campaign. Well, it is already too late for that. Candidates should carefully consider that when negative campaigning aims at something outside what voters consider to be relevant and fair, the effect is likely to be just the opposite of what was intended. At the end of the day, a strong record of accomplishment is more important than negative remarks, and voters will be the final judges of what is fair and relevant in a political campaign.

CaptainsPartyRentals .com Bounce Houses Water Slides Dunk Tanks Trackless Train 904-364-6128 Dear Editor: The headline in last weeks edition saddened me. I found it puzzling that a personal matter should need to be discussed in such a public place, especially when I had no input in the article, given the fact that the editor phoned at 7:30 p.m. on Monday evening and, receiving no return call, published anyway. The events described therein arent necessarily truthful. It has been my pleasure to serve as the manager of the Keystone Heights Farmers Market for these last four years. I want to thank the city and the community for the opportunity to do so. It has been a wonderful experience. I have met a great group of people in the vendors and the public. The market has been successful because of Former farmers market manager says experience was a pleasure Dwell on accomplishments, not negativity to even deserve that title I must attempt to conserve what made America America. Hence, this little article. Historically, the words American and patriot were synonymous. Most without even thinking about it much and many would not have been able to express it with such eloquence, assented in heart with the words of Carl Schurz, My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right. Today, however, we sheepishly allow a man on the world stage to apologize for being the greatest nation in the history of the world. Sure, we got some things wrong, but weve gotten a hell of a lot more right than all other nations combined. Our Greatest Generation saved most of the other nations and asked nothing in return; simply because it was the right thing to do. I apologize to my father, who was a part of those valiant men and women and died in 1970 by his own hand. In hindsight, I can see now that he suffered many years with what did not have a term then, post-traumatic stress disorder. Even though I have served in the military, I have not done enough to honor that generation of patriots or the ones before. My title question asks, where did all the Americans go? With the exception of the men and women who enlisted after Sept. 11, 2001, and only because, collectively, we will never know their names, and those four highly trained heroes in Benghazi, the last four average American patriots died on flight 93. Four men, all different, one Christian, one gay, one CEO and one Jewish, but all American, made the decision that if they were going to die or others on the ground were going to die, then it would be while on their feet fighting. We will never know for sure if they took the plane into the ground or the hijackers, getting their asses kicked, took it down, but we do know Muhammads dupes werent planning on an open field. After that day there was a surge of patriotism in America, but it was quickly squelched from the inside as the PC police, in the name of tolerance, told everyone that not all Muslims are terrorists. However well meaning this may have been, it defied the logic of no, but all the terrorists are Muslim, and the rest condone the actions with their deafening silence. Dear Editor: I confess I did not watch the State of The Union address (on Jan. 28). I couldnt stand to watch the dog return to its vomit again. For five long years we have watched this man spew his anti-American, treasonous vitriol, and, amazingly, we have allowed it to continue. Never mind if you call yourself Republican, Democrat, conservative, liberal, Christian, atheist, gay or straight; I believe, when asked our nationality, most say with some pride, American. But are we still? Francis Scott Key said America is the land of the free and the home of the brave, and we were when he penned those words. Men had sacrificed everything they had, including their lives, to form this country, and Mr. Key wrote those words after watching men again sacrifice to maintain it in 1814. These men all were patriots, and we were all taught in civics and history class, until recently, that to be patriotic was a good thing, that the Tea Party was a good thing. Yet today, those who attempt to identify with our forefathers with these terms are vilified. What is even more astounding is that many Americans dont even go as far as to call themselves such out of fear of nothing more than negative labels and rhetoric. Its just as well. If that is all it takes to stop you, then youre not up to the task of being a patriot. I have been no better. Ive simply called myself conservative, but Where did all the Americans go?

It became hip. It became cool. Once it became cool to illogically tolerate such a selfdefeating idea as to embrace people whose single passion is your destruction, the door was open; you must tolerate everything. And you must have that label of being tolerant. Without it, you cant get a job, youre socially shunned, your life is ruined without the beasts mark of tolerance. Then along comes a man from the shadows. A man of whom little was known. Oh, but he was a senator, some argue. A senator whose voting record stuck pretty close to safe issues; things that wouldnt draw attention. A man who spoke words of encouragement. Who promised openness and clarity while sealing all his past from view and answering direct questions with obfuscation. No matter how illogical it was to support such an unknown entity as this man was, it did not matter. The trap had been set. He was half black, and you had to be tolerant. So, here we sit, being tolerant sheep while he and his ilk destroy the Constitution and, with it, your freedom. Once the Constitution falls, America is gone. The Constitution is the heart of what we are; a constitutional republic. We were not designed to be a democracy, a majority ruled form of government, for two reasons: The majority is not always right (i.e., Jim Crow) and, as Rome discovered and now us, the majority soon figures out ways to vote themselves your stuff. This is not an American ideal. An American ideal is, Im responsible for me and mine, you are responsible for you and yours, and once weve taken care of that, well get together on our own to help each other; not waiting for someone to do it for you. It does not take a village to raise a child, it takes parents. The village is a cop-out way to get you to believe its society and the governments job to take care of you and yours. Where are all the Americans like Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham, Tom Burnett and Jeremy Glick, who when seeing that un-American idealists have taken over the plane and are hell bent on crashing that plane into your very way of life, stand up and decide were taking these bastards out and say, Lets roll? If I am wrong and all patriots are not gone, I leave you with a word of warning from the past, but this time the enemy is within: It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, peace, but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!

After Bradford went up 5-3 on a free throw by Davis, the Raiders scored 13 of the games next 15 points to go into the second quarter up 16-7. Santa Fe benefited from the play of Tasha Robinson, who made three 3-pointers and scored 11 points in the first quarter. Santa Fe built a 23-11 lead, but the Tornadoes were able to pull within five. Kemp had two straight baskets, hitting a pull-up jumper after her own steal and later sinking a floater in the lane. Davis had a layup off of a Kemp inbounds pass, while Keshanna Ardley had a free throw to make the score 23-18. The Raiders increased their lead again and would go into the half up by 10 when Aprella Ford made a 3-pointer off of an inbounds pass as time expired. Bradford trailed by 18 when Faith Anderson was fouled on a 3-point attempt with 31 seconds left in the third quarter. Anderson made all three free throws to make the score 43-28. Ardley knocked down a 3-pointer after a steal by Kemp before Kemp scored on a drive to the basket as the Tornadoes closed the quarter with eight straight points. Gault, with an assist from Kemp, scored on a layup before Kemp added a layup of her own in transition to pull Bradford to within 43-37. A layup by Davisset up by Kemps drive into the lanemade it a fourpoint game. The Tornadoes could get no closer. Santa Fe doubled its lead before Bradford committed turnovers on seven straight trips down the floor in the final 2:30.

The following individuals were arrested recently by local law enforcement officers in Bradford, Union or Clay (Keystone Heights area) counties: Bradford Thomas Gerald Alderman, 52, of Hampton was arrested Jan. 31 by Bradford deputies for possession of marijuana. Vincent Banville, 55, of Keystone Heights was arrested Feb. 1 by Bradford deputies for driving while license suspended or revoked. Jonathan Tyrone Bass, 31, was arrested Feb. 1 by Starke police for battery and aggravated battery. Accoring to the incident report, the charges stem from an early November attack on neighbors after Bass and his girlfriend were asked to keep the noise down at their home. According to the report, Bass and Jeannetta Merriweather came over, and Bass started attacking the male victim. While the men were engaged outside, Merriweather kicked the front door open, and started attacking the female neighbor after throwing a child out of the way. Both males entered the house, and fighting ensued until Bass and his girlfriend fled the home. Police were not able to locate the two suspects that day, so warrant affidavits (sworn complaints) were forwarded to the State Attorneys Office for the charges. A warrant was issued for Merriweathers arrest at the end of December, and she was arrested Dec. 31. The warrant for Bass was issued several weeks later and he was arrested Feb. 1 with bond set at $60,000.

A short time later Battice was spotted at Edwards Grocery on S.R. 100 in the 2009 Pontiac G6 and arrested. Battice apparently stole the vehicle from a car dealership in Ocala, according to a report in the Gainesville Sun.

The salesman assisted him into the vehicle, and then Battice locked the door and started the vehicle and drove away. Deputies in Marion and Alachua counties chased Battice, but decided to stop at their respective county lines and notify Bradford and other counties with the BOLO. Bond was set at $15,000.

a single man in his 60s, Griffis said. He was paying $1,400 a month with an individual policy. He was able to enroll in the Marketplace for $400. He had $1,000 a month in savings. He might have been a little bit upset about his cancellation, but he did not have any days of being uninsured. We enrolled him into a policy with no gaps in coverage. Griffis cited another example in which a woman thought she had talked to a Marketplace representative, who said she and her family could get a policy for $800-plus a month. That was simply too much money. The woman has a part-time job, while her husband recently went on unemployment. They support two young children, one of which has some health issues. As it turned out, the woman had not spoken to a Marketplace representative, but with a Florida Blue agent. The woman, at her sisters insistence, went to talk to Griffis and Allen. She and her family were able to get a policy for $28.33 a month when factoring in financial assistance. She came in tears and left very happy, Allen said. Griffis said youll hear people talk about high deductibles that come with Marketplace plans, but she said that really depends upon what level of plan you enroll in. For example, someone might qualify for a Bronze-level plan that has a monthly premium of $110, but a deductible of $6,000. However, if that person can afford to pay $257 a month, they could possibly get a Platinum-level plan that has no deductible. So, just what are the different levels of plans? They are defined by the percentage of the plans medical benefits they cover. Bronze and Silver plans pay 60 and 70 percent of costs, respectively, with Gold and Platinum paying 80 and 90 percent, respectively. Bronze plans will have the lowest monthly premiums, but higher deductibles and outof-pocket costs. Premiums increase, but deductibles and out-of-pocket costs decrease, as you move up to each successive level. Again, the original premium can be lowered if one qualifies for advanced premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions. To be eligible for advanced premium tax credits, which can be applied directly to monthly premiums, the household income of an individual or family must fall between 100-400 percent of t he federal poverty level. Some examples of incomes qualifying for tax credits are: Family of four: $23,550$94,200; Family of three: $19,530$78,120; Family of two: $15,510$62,040; Individual: $11,490$45,960. Cost-sharing reductions can be used to lower out-of-pocket costs for deductibles, coinsurance and co-payments, but are available with Silver-level plans only. Since the HealthCare.gov website is functional, Griffis encourages people to log on and see the types of plans that are available before creating an application. By remaining anonymous and entering some general information, a person or family can see the types of plans theyd be eligible for. Go to the websites home page and click on See plans before I apply. Please keep in mind that if you see Griffis or Allen to set up a Marketplace account and to enroll in a plan, you do not have to discuss your medical history. We do not ask any medical questions, Griffis said. You cannot be denied for preexisting conditions anymore. That is just a wonderful benefit. All Griffis and Allen can do is show you what plans your eligible for. It is up to the individual and/or family to decide whats best for them or if they even want to enroll in a Marketplace plan. Were not agents, Allen said. Theres no commission or benefits for us. Well, there are benefits, but they are in the form of seeing someone be able to obtain more affordable insurance or seeing someone who was previously uninsured now be enrolled into a plan. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014 Fins, Fur & Tails Florida is one of the hotter places in the United States when it comes to turkey hunting, and the reason for it is the Osceola wild turkey. It is one of the four turkeys a hunter must bag to score the coveted grand slam of turkey hunting, which consists of also bagging the following wild turkeys: Rio Grande, Merriams and Eastern. All of the other targeted sub-species of turkeys cover a relatively broad area, but the Osceola is located only on the Florida peninsula. As a matter of fact, the northern boundaries of Bradford, Union and Clay counties are considered the geographical habitat boundary between the Eastern wild turkey to the north and the Osceola to the south. So with very little travel, a hunter can claim one half of the grand slam honor. When it comes to Talking turkey: the Osceola and hitting the grand slam This turkey taken by Russell Norman illustrates the black and white feather bands on the wings that essentially distinguish the Eastern sub-species from the Osceola turkeys. Bailee Sheppard bagged an 8-point deer this hunting season, and now she is showing off her recent caught in a small pond distinguishing between the two sub-species, there is no better authority than Dr. Thomas A. Webber, the collections manager at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Additionally, Webber holds a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Florida. Webber generally describes the Osceola turkey as slightly smaller, with longer legs, longer spurs, darker coloration and more distinct white bands on the wing feathers. Actually, the Osceola is considered the smallest subspecies of wild turkey. The clearest distinction between the two is the black and white bands on the wing feathers. The Osceola has much more black than the Eastern. As a matter of fact, the white bands on the Osceola are much less distinct and do not make a clear continuous band across the feather. These differences are very difficult to determine on the northern habitat boundary of Union, Bradford and Clay counties. However, proceeding south as far as Orlando, the characteristics are much clearer. The reason for the difficulty along the recognized border is due to hybridization. To facilitate this distinction, hunters consider turkeys shot in Union, Bradford, and Clay counties to be Osceolas. Contrastingly, birds shot in Nassau, Baker or Columbia counties to the north are considered to be Eastern turkeys. In talking to some avid turkey hunters, the ambition of a grand slam seems to bring more hunters to Florida than taking Floridians to other places. Lamar Williams, Russell Norman and Jeff Fitts have shot the two local sub-species, but have not traveled west for the other two sub-species. However, Norman does take advantage of the trend by swap hunting. Norman makes contact with hunters who want to bag an Osceola turkey and agrees to host them during the season. In return, they agree to host him in their northern/western homes to hunt their big deer. Outdoors outlook Hunting season continues to wind down, with squirrel, quail, rabbits and hogs being the only hunting targets that remain open. Spring turkey season will open during the second and third weeks of March. Crosshorn Ministeries is timing its March meeting (Feb. 20, 7 p.m., at the Starke Golf and Country Club) appropriately by having Lamar Williams as its guest speaker. Williams, of course, will build his subject around turkey hunting. The inconsistent fish bite locally is certainly due to the inconsistent weather trends. Regardless, spring is around the corner, and the bass and bream will be fanning their beds soon. There are already reports of bass fanning on the west side of Lake George, where the warm spring runs dump into the St. Johns. One thing that is consistent, at least with last summer, is the amount of local precipitation. Gary Simpson indicates that Orange Lake can now be accessed by most of the major boat launches, and a lot of fishermen anticipate it producing some good bass by this summer if the trend continues. Bailee Sheppard and her father, Clint Sheppard, were just practice casting in a backyard pond, and she ended up landing the nice bass in the accompanying photo. So the large females will continue to bite even is they are not spawning. The best inland saltwater bet at this time is probably sheepshead on the east coast. Bridge pilings, rocks and oyster beds have been providing a good consistent bite. The toothy creatures are hard to hook, however. One humorous, but interesting, suggestion is to set your hook a little before you feel them. 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. Photos may also be submitted in person at the Bradford County Telegraph, Union County Times or Lake Region Monitor.

Tomlinson Business Person of the Year Award was Chrissy Allen Thompson (far chamber President Pam Whittle. BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The 2014 Board of Governors for the North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce was introduced at the chambers annual meeting and banquet, and several business leaders and supporters were honored, including the late Marvin Pritchett. Pritchett was posthumously recognized as Citizen of the Year, an award named for former Bradford County Telegraph publisher Eugene L. Matthews. Emcee Terry Vaughan said Pritchett, born in 1933, overcame the early loss of his parents, and from a football star at Union County High, he went on serve his county in the military, his family and his community. Vaughan called him a patriot, a devoted family man, a philanthropist and a respected businessman, who founded Pritchett Trucking in 1973 and Nextran Corporation in 1992. His career also included his role as one of CNB Banks founders, and his leadership in the farming, cattle, forestry and mining industries. He was also a community leader, serving as both a county commissioner and school board member. Generosity was his trademark as countless school-related and community projects were funded due to his philosophy of giving back, and his many years of faithful service to the First Christian Church in Lake Butler is well documented, Vaughan said. He was the go-to person if something needed to be done and he was always ready to roll up his sleeves and jump in full force. Bradford Superintendent of Schools Chad Farnsworth assists the education foundation in auctioning off something. Another man charged with abuseBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County Sheriffs Office has arrested another individual for sexually abusing a child. Jeremy Alan Hicks, 35, was arrested and charged with capital sexual battery on a child less than 12 years of age. The crime came to light when the victim stepped forward last October and disclosed the abuse. The victim told investigators that the abuse began around 2005, when the victim was just 8 years old, and continued for several years. Upon being interviewed on Jan. 29, Hicks reportedly confessed to several counts of sexual battery against the child. Hicks was still incarcerated at the Bradford County Jail as of press time. Bond was set at $100,000. Hicks has an arrest record that includes convictions for battery, dealing in stolen property and issuing a worthless check. Jeremy Alan Hicks Graham wants to succeed mom on school boardBY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Southside Elementary School Principal Lisa Graham said she would not seek of seventh term on the Clay County School Board. When her current term ends later this year, her 24 years of service on the school board will have tied the longest tenure of any Clay County School Board member. Graham said that since she first took office in 1990, she has served with 14 board members and five superintendents. She added that over that time, graduation rates have increased, career academies have expanded, and Clay County schools have been consistently ranked among the best in Florida. Six successful elections, however, are enough for me, she wrote in a statement. I have decided that I will not seek reelection this year, believing it is time for new leadership and fresh ideas. I thank all who have helped me throughout my careermy family, friends, the amazing staff of the Clay County School District, as well as the parents, students, and taxpayers of Clay County. On the same day Lisa Graham made her announcement, her son Brian H. Graham filed papers with the Clay County Supervisor of Elections office to run for his mothers seat. Currently, he is the community relations coordinator for the Bradford County School District, a member of the Clay County Soil and Water Conservation District and a managing partner in the political consulting firm of Dixie Strategies LLC. District 5 covers parts of Green Cove Springs, Middleburg and Lake Asbury. Two other candidates have also filed for the District 5 seat. Sandra Dunnavant is a retired educator and current substitute teacher in the Clay County School District. She served on the Green Cove Springs City Council from 1987-1994 and is also a former mayor and vice mayor of the municipality. Four days after she filed papers to run for Grahams seat on Jan. 21, Dunnavant took in a $1,000 campaign contribution from the Clay Education Political Action Committee. Keith Nichols has also filed papers to run for the seat. Over the past year, Nichols has used the public comments portion of district school board meetings to criticize Superintendent Charlie Van Zant and other administrators.County, TDC debate grant funds BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Who should be eligible for economic development support was the unexpected topic at Mondays county commission meeting. An application from Pat Welch for a Tourist Development Council grant to help promote a competition at the Bradford Sportsmens Farm had some trouble even making the agenda. Thenunlike a similar application for the Bradford County Fair, which won quick approval it looked like most of the board would withhold support for the Sportsmens Farms shooting event when a motion to approve by Commissioner Lila Sellars didnt receive an immediate second. Sellars sits on the TDC board, which had already voted to recommend approval of the application. The rest of the commission was hesitant to award the grant to a business. North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce President Pam Whittle said this was the first application from the Bradford Sportsmens Farm, but not their first event. Theyve been attracting visitors who spend money in Bradford County for years. According to his application, Welch said the 2014 Florida Challenge, scheduled for Feb. 27-March 2, should bring in around 300 shooters and their families, and many will rent local rooms and eat in local restaurants. Whittle said a letter from hotel owner Sam Patel confirmed his rooms would be filled. Even if there is an economic benefit, why does the county spend money to support such events? Well, it doesnt. It isnt local property tax dollars that fund the Tourism Development Council Grants. Instead, the county levys a tax on overnight accommodations at hotels See GRANT, 8A See CHAMBER, 2A

Gratefully accepting the award on their fathers behalf were Jon and Robin Pritchett. Many of you knew our dad, Jon Pritchett said, and he did love his community. He worked very, very hard. He worked even harder to give back to his community, so Robin, Phillip and I couldnt be more proud to be his children. The loss of Pritchett and Sheriff Jerry Whitehead made it a trying year for Union County and its neighbors, Vaughan said. Two community icons unexpectedly and tragically went on to their reward in heaven, he said. Whiteheads giving spirit and hearty handshake will be missed, he added, saying the Whitehead family legacy would be carried on by his son, Brad, the recently appointed sheriff of Union County. Vaughan also talked about the passing of Jerome Johns, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Community State Bank, who served an unprecedented three terms as chair of the chamber board in addition to his work on economic development. This body owes Jerome a great debt of gratitude for his life service, to include a commitment to the chamber few can match, he said. The J.E. Tomlinson Business Person of the Year Award went to Chrissy Allen Thompson, who Vaughan said was a driving force in the continued development of downtown Starke, most recently moving her restaurant to a larger location and turning The Downtown Grill into a hub of activity. Always willing to accommodate, her can-do spirit is always on display. She serves as a mentor to those who work for her, as she has been a great source of inspiration for so many young lives, Vaughan said. He also pointed to her involvement with the chamber, Main Street, Altrusa, Rotary, Kiwanis, scouting, Special Olympics, the school system and other organizations as proof of her civic commitment. Thompson said she wasnt sure she alone deserved the award, giving credit to her husband, Ricky Thompson, who is always willing to green light her crazy ideas. Together they divide and conquer whatever challenge they take on, she said. She said she was proud of her three kids for the great job they do helping out, and she thanked her staff for making her job easier. Thompson also expressed her appreciation for Virgil Berry for teaching her everything she knows about business. You just dont know how special it is to have you guys as family and friends and always supporting The Downtown Grill, Chrissys and all of the other endeavors we do, she said. Vaughan compared the chambers Volunteer of the Year award winner to a Temptations classic, saying B.J. Warwick was like sunshine on a cloudy day. Her mischievous laugh and outgoing personality can certainly brighten and warm any occasion, he said. She has been a tireless volunteer on a variety of fronts for as long as I have known her, but her amazing efforts on behalf of finding a cure for cancer have been front and center for many years. Warwick, a cancer survivor, is a driving force behind the local Relay for Life, Vaughan said, and she is organizing a dance for later this month that will benefit the event. She has also led the way for so many causes related to her position in conjunction with the National Guard, he said. Warwick gave credit to her late sister. If it wasnt for my sister, Ida Sue, I wouldnt be here to day, she said. The chamber also honored two businesses, the first being Lake Area Physical Therapy and Aquatics. It has been around and growing for 28 years, and now offers services in Starke, Keystone Heights, Melrose and Gainesville. Owner Laura Hodges lays deep roots in the communities she serves, Vaughan said, pointing to her roles in local business associations and the Lake Area Elder Council. Many thankful citizens sing their praises due to the caring and effective work they do in the field of physical, occupational, speech, sports, stroke rehabilitation, and more, he said. Hodges accepted the award along with Rhonda Hamilton, her marketing director, who she thanked for her enthusiasm, along with the chamber members and staff. Roberts Insurance was the second Business of the Year recognized. Of Scott Roberts, Vaughan said, If there is a cause, he stands willing to help and provide leadership. His affiliations include the chamber, The Arc of Bradford County, Kiwanis, Rotary, the Masonic Lodge, Communities in Schools, the board at Shands Starke and the Bradford County Education Foundation. Roberts Insurance does business in Starke, Keystone, Lake Butler and now Middleburg, and is one of the most respected names in the field, Vaughan said. He believes that clients deserve to be represented by someone who strives to create a relationship, so if you have that accident or if your home is damaged by a storm, you have a friend you know on a first-name basis to turn to for help, he said. Roberts thanked his parents, George and Nancy Roberts, and his incredible staff, without Volunteer of the Year B.J.

4A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014 HCA High School Principal Tori Schenck with Joe Shea WWII vet tells students his storyBY VIRGINIA DENMARK Hope Christian Academy After suffering a series of mini strokes and spending the Christmas holiday in the hospital, 89-year-old World War II veteran Joe Shea turned an almost missed opportunity into a morning sharing life stories with students at Hope Christian Academy. Shea said he realized, I am here because the dear Lord is not finished with me yet, and I want to go talk to the students. Born in 1924 in Mission, Texas, Shea and his family moved to Iowa where he was the self-proclaimed scrawniest kid in school. That did not deter him from his dream, though: to become a P51 Mustang fighter pilot. I was a good one, he said, and my belief in God protected me. Shea shared one war story of how he had been instructed to turn off his guns after a mission. I followed the instructions and a few moments later a German jet planeflying two times faster than I in my cruise mode slipped up on me. The clouds forming in front of me were the cannon shells exploding, and I knew I was being shot at. Interestingly, Shea said he was not afraid and was able to take corrective actions, but he still did not turn on his .50-caliber machine guns. It had to be a work of God because the German jet pilot was firing and missing, and we even came eyeball to eyeball, he said. Shea said everyone survived that mission and all had bullet holes in their planes except me. He flew 27 missions before the war ended. Shea encouraged the students that they can be anything they want to be. He shared an example about his daughter who at the age of five severely burned her hand. She tripped over the edge of a bonfire from the previous night and received third-degree burns and horribly disfigured her thumb, he said. Her dream was to become a pianist, so he said she practiced and practiced and eventually became a concert pianist. Follow your dream, he said confidently, and be what you want to become.Programs have funds to support businesses BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph Community leaders eager to learn about state programs and resources available to support local economic development crowded into an upstairs classroom at Santa Fe Colleges Andrews Center on Jan. 22, continuing the work of Envision Bradford 2023. Dug Jones, associate vice president for economic development at the college, welcomed those present and introduced representatives from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, including Bob Dennis, community program manager; Brook Pace, development representative supervisor; and Valerie Jenkins, community planning. The programs discussed at the meeting are designed to assist low-income communities and low-income community businesses. Jenkins spoke about technical assistance grants that are open for application May through July. These grants are funded by documentary stamp taxes, the amount set by legislature each year. They average about $2,500 each. Pace explained three programs that fall under the State Small Business Credit Initiative, which was signed into law through the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 and is administered by the U.S Department of Treasury. These programs are designed to fund startup costs, working capital, business acquisitions, franchise financing, equipment loans, inventory financing and construction. A variety of restrictions apply. The three programs highlighted by Pace were the Florida Capital Access Program, valued at $10.9 million; Florida Venture Capital Program, valued at $43.5 million; and Small Business Loan Support Program, valued at $43.5 million. Florida Capital Access Program is a loan portfolio insurance program for lenders to help mitigate the risk for small business loans. Both the lender and the state contribute to a reserve fund for all enrolled loans. If the loan goes bad the lender can make a claim on the reserve fund to cover its loss. Capital City Bank, which was represented at the meeting, participates in this program. Florida Venture Capital provides equity financing to emerging Florida companies with perceived long-term growth potential. The Small Business Loan Support Program is designed to mitigate the risks of making small business loans by offering lenders credit enhancement tools such as loan guarantees and loan participations, up to 80 percent. Pace provided a list of Florida businesses that have benefitted from State Small Business Credit Initiative, which included Hitchcocks Market and Goodwill Industries of southwest Florida. Dennis addressed the group about the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program, which was created in 1974 to provide funding for economic development, community revitalization and housing rehabilitation. More information is available at floridajobs.org/communityplanning-and-development.

Created Equal: Civil rights at libraryTo mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.s March on Washington and Black History Month the Bradford County Friends of the Library will be showing four documentaries about the history of civil rights in America. Created Equal: Americas Civil Rights Struggle is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities that uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion of Americas civil rights history. NEH has partnered with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to develop programmatic and support materials. The Friends of the Library is one of 473 institutions across the country awarded a set of four films chronicling the history of the civil rights movement. The powerful documentaries The Abolitionists, Slavery by Another Name, Freedom Riders and The Loving Story include dramatic scenes of incidents in the 150-year effort to achieve equal rights for all. Freedom Riders received an Emmy in 2012, and The Loving Story and The Abolitionists have been nominated for Emmys in 2013. Each of the films was produced with NEH support, and each tells remarkable stories of individuals who challenged the social and legal status quo of deeply rooted institutions, from slavery to segregation. Created Equal programs bring communities together to revisit our shared history and help bridge deep racial and cultural divides in American civic life. Visit www. neh.gov/created-equal for more information. The Friends of the Library program will offer the films on four Tuesday evenings from 6 to 7:30 p.m. beginning on Feb. 18 at the Bradford County Library starting with The Abolitionists. These films chronicle the long and sometimes violent effort to achieve the rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independencelife, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, said Paul Still. We are pleased to receive a grant from NEH to provide programming around these films. In addition to presenting these films and discussions at the library, we are looking for churches or other organizations who would be willing to host a film showing. The grant we received provides the film(s), suggested discussion guides and funding for some of the costs of the hosts. Contact Paul Still at 904-3680291 or stillpe@aol.com for more information or to schedule a showing of one or all of the films in the series. The Created Equal film set is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.Womans Club throwing Mardi Gras partyThe Mardi Gras Bash will be one of the premier events of the year hosted by the Womans Club of Starke.

Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Laurie Compton at lcompton@ufl.edu .February gardening tipsPlanting suggestions Temperatures will likely drop to freezing this month, so if you decide to add new bedding plants to the garden they must be able to withstand cold. Some plants that can take a chill: dianthus, pansy, viola and dusty miller. There are many bulbs that can be planted now, but be sure to provide adequate water to get them established and protect them from cold weather with mulch. Some to try are dahlias, crinum and agapanthus. Many trees and shrubs will be in bloom including red maple, spirea and star magnolia. February is the time to plant potatoes. Buy healthy seed pieces from a local nursery and plant 3 inches deep. Do not add lime to the potato planting bed. Things to do Cold weather can damage palms, but proper care may prevent loss of the palm and encourage recovery. For more information, call the Bradford County Extension Office. Roses should be pruned this month to remove damaged canes and improve the overall form. After pruning, fertilize and apply a fresh layer of mulch. Blooming will begin eight to nine weeks after pruning. Be sure that you know the height and spread of any shrubs you plan to install. Not all shrubs are suitable for planting next to homes or under windows. The rule of thumb is to plant your shrub onehalf the mature width plus 1 foot away from the house. After temps rise to 65 degrees for four to five days, apply a pre-emergent weed killer (not a weed and feed fertilizer) to lawns this month to prevent warm season weeds. Timing is important for good control. If not done in January, fertilize citrus and other fruit trees now. Frequency and amount of fertilization depends on the age of the tree. Call the Bradford County Extension office for more information. Wildlife activity in February Early purple martin scouts will start to appear in Florida this month. Ospreys will begin nesting in north Florida near the end of the month. Swallow-tailed kites begin returning to Florida from South America. Pocket gophers begin their spring breeding season. Did You Know? Pocket gophers are known to excavate extensive tunnel systems (some greater than 500 feet in length). Research suggests that gopher tunnels serve as an important shelter for a variety of animal species. Typical burrow inhabitants include many insects (some are exceptionally rare), salamanders, frogs, lizards, snakes and small mammals.

At least half of the applicants were hired to positions with her help. The chamber bid farewell to Tommy Tomlinson, who was this years departing board member. Chamber board Chair Jennie Reed (outgoing) said Tomlinson always stepped up when called up and has been a great mentor. Tomlinson thanked the chamber for the opportunity. One thing Ive learned over the years, if we will just work with one another in southwestern Clay County, Bradford County and Union County, (its) how much we can do to bring success to these counties, he said. The chamber once again hosted the Bradford County Education Foundations annual silent and live auctions. Foundation President Dimple Overstreet talked about how the money raised benefits schools, including purchasing books for students, and she thanked chamber members for their help. I would like say for the whole board, thank you from the deepest part of our hearts, and the children of the schools say thank you, she said. Speaking of charity to schools, Murray Fords Amir Asadi and Amy Hoglund presented a check for more than $5,000 to Bradford High School, raised through a driving event at the school. Asadi said that while the dealership began at a time of economic uncertainty, the support of the community has resulted in more sales than stores in Gainesville, Lake City and Green Cove Springs. Because of that, they have an obligation to give back, he said. The Drive 4 UR School event is held annually with the help of the schools teachers and administrators, Asadi said. Money is donated for each individual who goes to the school to test drive a vehicle.

Chamber board Chair Jennie Reed (outgoing), President Pam Whittle and Susan Norman, recipient of the Workforce Award.Workforce boards get new names BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The annual chamber banquet served as an opportunity to usher in a new, unified identity of the states various workforce boards. As of Feb. 10, the rebranding is official and FloridaWorks, the workforce agency serving Bradford and Alachua County, and all of the other workforce agencies around the state will be known as CareerSource Florida. Each regional agency will have its own designation, such as Career Source North Central Florida for Bradford and its partners, CareerSource Northeast Florida for Clay and its partners, and CareerSource Florida Crown for Union and its partners. Chamber President Pam Whittle said the new name and logo may be a new look, but the same important services will be provided, including matching jobseekers and employers. and motels colloquially known as the bed tax, and that revenue is to be spent on purposes that increase tourism and economic development. According to the grant application, an eligible event is an event or series of events having an economic impact or an impact on tourism, which also has the following characteristics: 1. It has growth potential and the grant funds can be useful as seed money. 2. The event is celebratory, historical, cultural or multicultural. 3. The event is likely to generate media exposure. 4. The event will be free or available at a nominal fee to the public. 5. The event attracts outof-town guests to occupy hotel/motel rooms. TDC doesnt just write a check when an application is submitted, but interviews applicants and examines the events budget before and after the event. The maximum amount available for anyone is $5,000, and TDC tells applicants they may be requested to return a portion or all of the grant award if the event generates a profit. While TDC does inquire if the applicant is a nonprofit entity, being nonprofit is not a requirement for the award. Commissioner Eddie Lewis asked about the criteria. Saying he thought this was the first request from an outside sourcemeaning someone not affiliated with the fair association or chamber sponsored festivals that usually receive supporthe wanted to know how requests from others would be dealt with when they start rolling in. Whittle said that is part of TDCs job, to screen applications and recommend for approval those that qualify. The goal is to advertise the county and attract tourists, she said, and much of the grant funding is spent on media buys to get the word out about what is happening in Bradford County. TDC Board Chairman John Miller, publisher of the Bradford County Telegraph, said the owners had invested their own money over the years, not just to establish and grow the event, but to build a facility that has grown in value. Other businesses benefit, but so does the county through the additional tax revenue. A look at its schedule shows the farm is hosting some event or class nearly every week over the next several months, including The Florida State Shoot in April. He does put heads in beds. He does make cash registers ring. Thats our purpose, Miller said. Its a mission the county commission has to share, he added. Commissioner Ross Chandler was concerned about awarding funding to businesses, too, saying there are many others that are now going to want their piece. Are we going to treat them all the same, because the dollars may not be there? he asked That was a budgeting matter, Miller said, even asserting that TDC was more conservative when it comes to spending than the county commission. Be progressive. Be for the county, he said. Sellars said this would not be the first time a for-profit entity would receive funding, and TDC would consider any application that met the requirements, pending the availability of funds. The commission voted 4-1 to approve the $5,000 grant application, with Danny Riddick, chairman of the board, dissenting. He said was disappointed when TDC didnt take his suggestion to send $4,000 to the regional planning council to promote events in Bradford County like fishing tournaments, horse shows and a motorsports park that no one knows about. Thats something Chandler also wanted TDC to reconsider.GRANTContinued from 1A

Griffis, Jarraid Forsyth, Shayne Kahakua-Lodivero and Blake Addison are pictured with coach Chris Adams. Funderburk, Griffis, Forsyth, Kahakua-Lodivero and Addison earned the right to participate in regional competition. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Five Bradford High School wrestlers earned the right to compete at the regional level after their performances at the District 4-1A meet, which was held at Episcopal High School in Jacksonville last weekend. Those five wrestlers performances equated to a fourth-place finish in the team standings. Bradford finished with 98 points behind Bishop Kenny (164.5), Bolles (151.5) and University Christian (136). They were bound and determined to make a mark, Bradford coach Chris Adams said. Three Bradford wrestlers See DISTRICT, 3B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Are you confused about Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum plans or advanced premium tax credits? Maybe youve never had health insurance and are unsure about such terminology as deductibles and out-ofpocket expenses. Debbie Allen and Staci Griffis are here to help you with your questions about the Affordable Care Act and to help you with your Marketplace application. They are certified application counselors through New River Community Health Care Inc. and have offices at the health departments in Bradford and Union counties. Griffis said she and Allen are not to be confused with navigators, whose efforts are more in the vein of community outreach. Though Griffis and Allen do participate in outreach efforts, their grant-funded counselor positions were created to give people one-on-one help. Were here with all your answers and can help you get through it, Griffis said. Perhaps you attempted to create a Marketplace account via the website HealthCare.gov when it first went online. As you know from experience or most likely heard, the website had quite a few glitches and was unable to handle the traffic at its onset. If you unsuccessfully created an account or partially created one, Griffis and Allen can help you now do so successfully. Plus, it really doesnt take that long. The benefits of coming (to see us) is the fact the website is fully functional, Griffis said. It takes about 20 minutes to complete the application. Of course, you can create an account yourself, but Griffis said people may not properly factor in any of the help they may be eligible for in the form of advanced premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions. Plus, sometimes its just easier to understand when someone goes through the process with you. You can hear the term advanced premium tax credit, but its easier to be able to show them on the screen, Griffis said. Some people have been surprised to see how much insurance they can actually get for their dollars, no matter what their views of the Affordable Care Act are. Griffis said the latest numbers revealed that 83 percent of Floridians choosing plans through the Marketplace qualified for financial assistance of some sort. It has a lot of positive to it, Allen said. People dont necessarily hear that, but once they come and they sit one on one, we can educate them. They see it through the systems themselves. They see that it really benefits them. At first, Griffis said most of the people she counseled were those who received letters that their current policies were being Counselors are here to help with Health Insurance Marketplace questions and guide you through the Health Insurance Marketplace and HealthCare.gov at the Bradford County and Union County health departments. canceled.

won the championships of their respective weight classes: Shayne Kahakua-Lodivero in the 106 class, J.T. Griffis in the 113 class and Jarrai Forsyth in the 160 class. It was a relatively quick tournament for KahakuaLodivero, who pinned Bishop Kennys Ryan Timmons in 48 seconds in the 106 finals. The result was similar to all his other matches in the tournament pins that took little time. He probably spent no more than a minute and a half total on the mat, Adams said, adding, He was just going out there with a mission. Kahakua-Lodivero, a sophomore, improved to 27-7 on the year. Boasting a similar record is teammate Griffis, a sophomore who is 32-4. All four of Griffis losses have come against opponents who are ranked in the state. Griffis, who placed third at last years district meet, was one match away from the state finals last year. Adams said, I have high expectations hell place this year. A 12-9 win over Duval Charters Daniel Porter propelled Griffis one step closer to state. Griffis, who pinned all of his opponents leading up to the final match, has more heart than any wrestler hes ever seen, Adams said. The coach described Griffis as someone who makes no excuses for what goes wrong in a match. He merely watches video afterward and then does what he needs to do to fix it. I have high expectations hell place (at state) this year, Adams said. Forsyth is no stranger to the stage at state. The senior has qualified the last two years, so its probably no surprise that he seems to be on his way to a third appearance. His first step was winning the District 4 championship in the 160 class by pinning University Christians Daniel Folkner in 4:20. It was Forsyths third straight district championship. Hes handled expectations well, Adams said of Forsyth, who is 33-0 and seeded second at the state level in his weight class. Forsyth has a tough matchup waiting for him at the regional meet in Suwannees Shawn Brown, who is seeded number one in the state. However, Forsyth sounds as if hes not going to let anyone stand in his way of getting back to state. He had a disappointing showing last year due to illness and is determined to win it all this year. Adams said thats what Forsyth has been telling him every day. Joining the three district champions at the Region 1 meet, which will be held Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7-8, at Jacksonvilles Bishop Snyder High School, are Brandon Funderburk and Blake Addison. Each placed third in his respective weight class.

Hes determined to get a victory. Addison is a freshman who is 14-15. He earned his thirdplace finish in the 132 class by pinning University Christians Dale Glies in 3:00. He hasnt placed in a tournament (all season), Adams said, but when it mattered, he stepped up. Addison, who had two additional pins leading up to the consolation finals, has been good at soaking up everything he needs to know during his first year of wrestling. Adams said if Addison sticks with the sport, hell eventually be a state champion. Who makes it to this years state finals remains to be seen, but as you can probably tell, their coach has the utmost confidence in their abilities. They have his admiration as well. I love these boys with all my heart, Adams said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School got the rematch it wanted, but in the end, it was Eastside coming out victorious again as Tyler Miller-Jones scored a pair of second-half goals in an approximate three-minute span to lift the host Rams to a 2-1 win over the Indians in a Class 2A boys soccer regional semifinal match on Feb. 4. We played well enough to win, Keystone head coach Trevor Waters said. It just didnt happen. Keystone (22-4-2) lost 1-0 to Eastside in the District 5 championship match, but the Indians went on the road and defeated Mount Dora 3-1 in the regional quarterfinals to return to Citizens Field and get another shot at the Rams. Miller-Jones, who scored the lone goal in the District 5 championship match, fired off a rocket of a shot after the firsthalf water break, but Keystone goalie Eric Wood was able to make a save. Approximately eight minutes later, the Indians Nacho Grimaldo passed the ball downfield to Wyatt Graziano, who launched a shot over the challenging goalie to put Keystone up 1-0. That would be the only score for the Indians, who were playing their second straight match without leading scorer Cory Hedding, who was out with a foot injury. Not an excuse, Waters said. Eastside played very well tonight. In the 57th and 60th minutes, Miller-Jones misfired on a couple of shot attempts. However, he found the mark in the 61st minute to tie the score before adding another goal in the 64th minute. Hes just a superstar, Waters said of Miller-Jones. He can play anywhere. Hes the fastest kid Ive ever seen play high school soccer in this area. Waters said he was proud of his teams effortnot just against Eastside, but also in the quarterfinals against Mount Dora. When you lose in the district finals, its very disappointing to the whole team, Waters said. Its very hard to come back and win that next game. Its so much easier if you win the finals. Then you come back, and youre on top of the world. This team showed me such great heart. Eastside (20-6) will host Bishop Moore for the Region 2 championship on Friday, Feb. 7.

Sullivan, Newmans to wed in MarchDear Editor: One thing is increasingly clear about elections these days voters overwhelmingly dislike negative campaigning and are troubled by its widespread use. In the Monitor two weeks ago, Keystone Vice Mayor Tony Brown kicked off his campaign for mayor by opening with a negative personal attack on his opponent, incumbent Mayor Mary Lou Hildreth. Brown stated his negative remarks and then closed by making the claim he was going to run a positive campaign. Well, it is already too late for that. Candidates should carefully consider that when negative campaigning aims at something outside what voters consider to be relevant and fair, the effect is likely to be just the opposite of what was intended. At the end of the day, a strong record of accomplishment is more important than negative remarks, and voters will be the final judges of what is fair and relevant in a political campaign.

CaptainsPartyRentals .com Bounce Houses Water Slides Dunk Tanks Trackless Train 904-364-6128 Dear Editor: The headline in last weeks edition saddened me.   I found it puzzling that a personal matter should need to be discussed in such a public place, especially when I had no input in the article, given the fact that the editor phoned at 7:30 p.m. on Monday evening and, receiving no return call, published anyway.   The events described therein arent necessarily truthful. It has been my pleasure to serve as the manager of the Keystone Heights Farmers Market for these last four years. I want to thank the city and the community for the opportunity to do so. It has been a wonderful experience. I have met a great group of people in the vendors and the public. The market has been successful because of Former farmers market manager says experience was a pleasure Dwell on accomplishments, not negativityto even deserve that title I must attempt to conserve what made America America. Hence, this little article. Historically, the words American and patriot were synonymous. Most without even thinking about it much and many would not have been able to express it with such eloquence, assented in heart with the words of Carl Schurz, My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right. Today, however, we sheepishly allow a man on the world stage to apologize for being the greatest nation in the history of the world. Sure, we got some things wrong, but weve gotten a hell of a lot more right than all other nations combined. Our Greatest Generation saved most of the other nations and asked nothing in return; simply because it was the right thing to do. I apologize to my father, who was a part of those valiant men and women and died in 1970 by his own hand. In hindsight, I can see now that he suffered many years with what did not have a term then, post-traumatic stress disorder. Even though I have served in the military, I have not done enough to honor that generation of patriots or the ones before. My title question asks, where did all the Americans go? With the exception of the men and women who enlisted after Sept. 11, 2001, and only because, collectively, we will never know their names, and those four highly trained heroes in Benghazi, the last four average American patriots died on flight 93. Four men, all different, one Christian, one gay, one CEO and one Jewish, but all American, made the decision that if they were going to die or others on the ground were going to die, then it would be while on their feet fighting. We will never know for sure if they took the plane into the ground or the hijackers, getting their asses kicked, took it down, but we do know Muhammads dupes werent planning on an open field. After that day there was a surge of patriotism in America, but it was quickly squelched from the inside as the PC police, in the name of tolerance, told everyone that not all Muslims are terrorists. However well meaning this may have been, it defied the logic of no, but all the terrorists are Muslim, and the rest condone the actions with their deafening silence. Dear Editor: I confess I did not watch the State of The Union address (on Jan. 28). I couldnt stand to watch the dog return to its vomit again. For five long years we have watched this man spew his anti-American, treasonous vitriol, and, amazingly, we have allowed it to continue. Never mind if you call yourself Republican, Democrat, conservative, liberal, Christian, atheist, gay or straight; I believe, when asked our nationality, most say with some pride, American. But are we still? Francis Scott Key said America is the land of the free and the home of the brave, and we were when he penned those words. Men had sacrificed everything they had, including their lives, to form this country, and Mr. Key wrote those words after watching men again sacrifice to maintain it in 1814. These men all were patriots, and we were all taught in civics and history class, until recently, that to be patriotic was a good thing, that the Tea Party was a good thing. Yet today, those who attempt to identify with our forefathers with these terms are vilified. What is even more astounding is that many Americans dont even go as far as to call themselves such out of fear of nothing more than negative labels and rhetoric. Its just as well. If that is all it takes to stop you, then youre not up to the task of being a patriot. I have been no better. Ive simply called myself conservative, but Where did all the Americans go?Wendy Ann Sullivan of Starke and Gordon Newmans of Hampton announce their wedding.

It became hip. It became cool. Once it became cool to illogically tolerate such a selfdefeating idea as to embrace people whose single passion is your destruction, the door was open; you must tolerate everything. And you must have that label of being tolerant. Without it, you cant get a job, youre socially shunned, your life is ruined without the beasts mark of tolerance. Then along comes a man from the shadows. A man of whom little was known. Oh, but he was a senator, some argue. A senator whose voting record stuck pretty close to safe issues; things that wouldnt draw attention. A man who spoke words of encouragement. Who promised openness and clarity while sealing all his past from view and answering direct questions with obfuscation. No matter how illogical it was to support such an unknown entity as this man was, it did not matter. The trap had been set. He was half black, and you had to be tolerant. So, here we sit, being tolerant sheep while he and his ilk destroy the Constitution and, with it, your freedom. Once the Constitution falls, America is gone. The Constitution is the heart of what we are; a constitutional republic. We were not designed to be a democracy, a majority ruled form of government, for two reasons: The majority is not always right (i.e., Jim Crow) and, as Rome discovered and now us, the majority soon figures out ways to vote themselves your stuff. This is not an American ideal. An American ideal is, Im responsible for me and mine, you are responsible for you and yours, and once weve taken care of that, well get together on our own to help each other; not waiting for someone to do it for you. It does not take a village to raise a child, it takes parents. The village is a cop-out way to get you to believe its society and the governments job to take care of you and yours. Where are all the Americans like Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham, Tom Burnett and Jeremy Glick, who when seeing that un-American idealists have taken over the plane and are hell bent on crashing that plane into your very way of life, stand up and decide were taking these bastards out and say, Lets roll? If I am wrong and all patriots are not gone, I leave you with a word of warning from the past, but this time the enemy is within: It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, peace, but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!Patrick Henry Thomas Rice Lawtey them. The vendors are some of the most creative, caring and committed people I have met, and, at the market, I have really come to know the wonderful people that live in the Lake Region.

The following individuals were arrested recently by local law enforcement officers in Bradford, Union or Clay (Keystone Heights area) counties: BradfordThomas Gerald Alderman, 52, of Hampton was arrested Jan. 31 by Bradford deputies for possession of marijuana. Vincent Banville, 55, of Keystone Heights was arrested Feb. 1 by Bradford deputies for driving while license suspended or revoked. Jonathan Tyrone Bass, 31, was arrested Feb. 1 by Starke police for battery and aggravated battery. Accoring to the incident report, the charges stem from an early November attack on neighbors after Bass and his girlfriend were asked to keep the noise down at their home. According to the report, Bass and Jeannetta Merriweather came over, and Bass started attacking the male victim. While the men were engaged outside, Merriweather kicked the front door open, and started attacking the female neighbor after throwing a child out of the way. Both males entered the house, and fighting ensued until Bass and his girlfriend fled the home. Police were not able to locate the two suspects that day, so warrant affidavits (sworn complaints) were forwarded to the State Attorneys Office for the charges. A warrant was issued for Merriweathers arrest at the end of December, and she was arrested Dec. 31. The warrant for Bass was issued several weeks later and he was arrested Feb. 1 with bond set at $60,000. Shamal Ike Battice, 28, of Ocala was arrested Jan. 29 by Bradford deputies for grand theft auto and driving while license suspended or revoked. According to the arrest report, the Sheriffs Office received a BOLO for a stolen vehicle from Marion County that day, and while on patrol, received a call from the Hampton BP station that someone was panhandling for gas money. The description of the person and the vehicle matched the Marion County BOLO, but when deputies arrived, the suspect had left the store. A short time later Battice was spotted at Edwards Grocery on S.R. 100 in the 2009 Pontiac G6 and arrested. Battice apparently stole the vehicle from a car dealership in Ocala, according to a report in the Gainesville Sun. The Sun story said Battice, a paraplegic who uses a wheelchair, asked a salesman if he could look and sit in the Pontiac that was on the lot. The salesman assisted him into the vehicle, and then Battice locked the door and started the vehicle and drove away. Deputies in Marion and Alachua counties chased Battice, but decided to stop at their respective county lines and notify Bradford and other counties with the BOLO. Bond was set at $15,000. Thomas Albert Baugess, 24, of Starke, and Albert Cornelious Baugess, 45, of Starke were arrested Feb. 2 by Bradford deputies and charged with battery. According to the arrest report, the father and son got into a verbal and physical argument with each other, with police called by another family member. Jajuan Akeem Biggiers, 26, of Jacksonville was arrested Jan. 31 by Starke police for three charges of possession of marijuana, two charges of selling marijuana, two charges of public nuisance crimes-storing drugs and for possession of drug equipment. According to the arrest report, the SPD Street Crimes Unit executed a search warrant for an apartment in Whispering Oaks in reference to an active narcotics investigation. Biggiers was inside the apartment along with several other people. Inside the apartment, police discovered the drugs, drug equipment and paraphernalia, and various amounts of cash and computer equipment. Bond for Biggiers was set at $35,000. Also arrested was Stevie Desue, 24, of Starke for giving false information to a law enforcement officer during an investigation. According to the report, Desue first told police his name was Floyd Barnes, until officers found a wallet in the apartment with ID showing his real name. Bond was set at $2,000 for Desue.

a single man in his 60s, Griffis said. He was paying $1,400 a month with an individual policy. He was able to enroll in the Marketplace for $400. He had $1,000 a month in savings. He might have been a little bit upset about his cancellation, but he did not have any days of being uninsured. We enrolled him into a policy with no gaps in coverage. Griffis cited another example in which a woman thought she had talked to a Marketplace representative, who said she and her family could get a policy for $800-plus a month. That was simply too much money. The woman has a part-time job, while her husband recently went on unemployment. They support two young children, one of which has some health issues. As it turned out, the woman had not spoken to a Marketplace representative, but with a Florida Blue agent. The woman, at her sisters insistence, went to talk to Griffis and Allen. She and her family were able to get a policy for $28.33 a month when factoring in financial assistance. She came in tears and left very happy, Allen said. Griffis said youll hear people talk about high deductibles that come with Marketplace plans, but she said that really depends upon what level of plan you enroll in. For example, someone might qualify for a Bronze-level plan that has a monthly premium of $110, but a deductible of $6,000. However, if that person can afford to pay $257 a month, they could possibly get a Platinum-level plan that has no deductible. So, just what are the different levels of plans? They are defined by the percentage of the plans medical benefits they cover. Bronze and Silver plans pay 60 and 70 percent of costs, respectively, with Gold and Platinum paying 80 and 90 percent, respectively. Bronze plans will have the lowest monthly premiums, but higher deductibles and outof-pocket costs. Premiums increase, but deductibles and out-of-pocket costs decrease, as you move up to each successive level. Again, the original premium can be lowered if one qualifies for advanced premium tax credits and cost-sharing reductions. To be eligible for advanced premium tax credits, which can be applied directly to monthly premiums, the household income of an individual or family must fall between 100-400 percent of the federal poverty level. Some examples of incomes qualifying for tax credits are: Family of four: $23,550$94,200; Family of three: $19,530$78,120; Family of two: $15,510$62,040; Individual: $11,490$45,960. Cost-sharing reductions can be used to lower out-of-pocket costs for deductibles, coinsurance and co-payments, but are available with Silver-level plans only. Since the HealthCare.gov website is functional, Griffis encourages people to log on and see the types of plans that are available before creating an application. By remaining anonymous and entering some general information, a person or family can see the types of plans theyd be eligible for. Go to the websites home page and click on See plans before I apply. Please keep in mind that if you see Griffis or Allen to set up a Marketplace account and to enroll in a plan, you do not have to discuss your medical history. We do not ask any medical questions, Griffis said. You cannot be denied for preexisting conditions anymore. That is just a wonderful benefit. All Griffis and Allen can do is show you what plans your eligible for. It is up to the individual and/or family to decide whats best for them or if they even want to enroll in a Marketplace plan. Were not agents, Allen said. Theres no commission or benefits for us. Well, there are benefits, but they are in the form of seeing someone be able to obtain more affordable insurance or seeing someone who was previously uninsured now be enrolled into a plan. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014 Fins, Fur & Tails Florida is one of the hotter places in the United States when it comes to turkey hunting, and the reason for it is the Osceola wild turkey.   It is one of the four turkeys a hunter must bag to score the coveted grand slam of turkey hunting, which consists of also bagging the following wild turkeys: Rio Grande, Merriams and Eastern. All of the other targeted sub-species of turkeys cover a relatively broad area, but the Osceola is located only on the Florida peninsula. As a matter of fact, the northern boundaries of Bradford, Union and Clay counties are considered the geographical habitat boundary between the Eastern wild turkey to the north and the Osceola to the south. So with very little travel, a hunter can claim one half of the grand slam honor. When it comes to Talking turkey: the Osceola and hitting the grand slamThis turkey taken by Russell Norman illustrates the black and white feather bands on the wings that essentially distinguish the Eastern sub-species from the Osceola turkeys. Bailee Sheppard bagged an 8-point deer this hunting season, and now she is showing off her recent caught in a small pond distinguishing between the two sub-species, there is no better authority than Dr. Thomas A. Webber, the collections manager at the Florida Museum of Natural History.   Additionally, Webber holds a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Florida. Webber generally describes the Osceola turkey as slightly smaller, with longer legs, longer spurs, darker coloration and more distinct white bands on the wing feathers. Actually, the Osceola is considered the smallest subspecies of wild turkey.   The clearest distinction between the two is the black and white bands on the wing feathers.   The Osceola has much more black than the Eastern.   As a matter of fact, the white bands on the Osceola are much less distinct and do not make a clear continuous band across the feather. These differences are very difficult to determine on the northern habitat boundary of Union, Bradford and Clay counties.   However proceeding south as far as Orlando, the characteristics are much clearer.   The reason for the difficulty along the recognized border is due to hybridization.   T o facilitate this distinction, hunters consider turkeys shot in Union, Bradford, and Clay counties to be Osceolas.   Contrastingly, birds shot in Nassau, Baker or Columbia counties to the north are considered to be Eastern turkeys. In talking to some avid turkey hunters, the ambition of a grand slam seems to bring more hunters to Florida than taking Floridians to other places.   Lamar Williams, Russell Norman and Jeff Fitts have shot the two local sub-species, but have not traveled west for the other two sub-species. However, Norman does take advantage of the trend by swap hunting.   Norman makes contact with hunters who want to bag an Osceola turkey and agrees to host them during the season. In return, they agree to host him in their northern/western homes to hunt their big deer.Outdoors outlookHunting season continues to wind down, with squirrel, quail, rabbits and hogs being the only hunting targets that remain open. Spring turkey season will open during the second and third weeks of March. Crosshorn Ministeries is timing its March meeting (Feb. 20, 7 p.m., at the Starke Golf and Country Club) appropriately by having Lamar Williams as its guest speaker.   W illiams, of course, will build his subject around turkey hunting. The inconsistent fish bite locally is certainly due to the inconsistent weather trends.   Regardless, spring is around the corner, and the bass and bream will be fanning their beds soon. There are already reports of bass fanning on the west side of Lake George, where the warm spring runs dump into the St. Johns. One thing that is consistent, at least with last summer, is the amount of local precipitation. Gary Simpson indicates that Orange Lake can now be accessed by most of the major boat launches, and a lot of fishermen anticipate it producing some good bass by this summer if the trend continues. Bailee Sheppard and her father, Clint Sheppard, were just practice casting in a backyard pond, and she ended up landing the nice bass in the accompanying photo. So the large females will continue to bite even is they are not spawning. The best inland saltwater bet at this time is probably sheepshead on the east coast.   Bridge pilings, rocks and oyster beds have been providing a good consistent bite. The toothy creatures are hard to hook, however.   One humorous, but interesting, suggestion is to set your hook a little before you feel them.   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. Photos may also be submitted in person at the Bradford County Telegraph, Union County Times or Lake Region Monitor.
