State: Shut Hampton downResignations follow audits release BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The results of a state audit sounded as bad to lawmakers in Tallahassee as they did to the towns residents, and now Hamptonor at least its governmentmight soon be a thing of the past. During a Feb. 10 hearing in Tallahassee, members of the Florida Joint Legislative Auditing Committee called for the towns abolishment after hearing about the shoddy recordkeeping, loose purse strings, nepotism, lack of governance and the general abuse of the publics trust. Abolishment means the town would be dissolved. But lawmakersincluding Sen. Rob Bradley who represents Bradford Countyalso want a criminal grand jury to investigate. Among the audits 31 findings were alleged instances of violating state and federal laws as well as the towns own charter. State funding has also been suspended. Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith testified at the hearing and blasted the city, at one point accusing its officials of raping the public, according to one story. Myrtice McCullough, the council member acting as mayor since Mayor Barry Moores widely publicized drug arrest last November, testified as well, saying the city council only found out about the alleged wrongdoings because of the audit. The audit was set in motion by a request from Rep. Charles Van Zant, who informed the auditing committee of a number of complaints brought to him by members of the public. Citizens filed into city hall again Tuesday night to hear the latest developments, and after a brief summary of the Tallahassee hearing, McCullough announced the resignations of John Hodges, the towns elected marshal, and Christina Mobley, who was hired by the city council to replace Jane Hall as clerk. Also gone is Adam Hall, who was overseeing the water department. There was little surprise and no regret expressed, except in the case of Mobley, who had been doing a great job, according to the council. There were a lot of questions and not many answers about what comes next. Sheriff Smith mediated much of the meeting, trying to ease concerns where he could. Many of the questions centered around the safety and maintenance of the water utility, and how billing is going to be handled. Smith said this was one of the main concerns at the hearing, and he said the next day or two would hopefully bring some plan from the state on how to move forward. The water utility and its lost water, unbilled customers, mishandled receipts, etc., were a large part of the audit. Currently theres no one to read meters, send bills or collect checksbut theres also no one to cut off customers for nonpayment. McCullough said the city does contract with someone who performs regular water quality tests. But citizens like Mike Armes were worried that water customers like him would wind up getting Funding for raises drops with student countTeachers, district divided over method, not moneyBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Both sides have yet to come together in the debate over teacher and employee salaries, and while they are close, they are still very divided. The teams for the school district as well as the employees union, the Bradford Education Association, now agree on the amount of money the district has to spend on raises, although the state allocation has dropped to just $507,000 because of declining enrollment. Where they differ is in how that money will be distributed. Under BEAs latest proposal, teachers would get $1,400 more and education support staff would get 55 cents more an hour added to the current salary schedules, retroactive to July 1, 2013. The district is also proposing $1,400 for teachers ($1,300 for first-year teachers at step zero) and 55 cents an hour for ESPs, but the district wants them to accept that as part of their step raise. The union says no. Members are willing to stay at their current step for the time being and discuss step raises when the district is able to bring that money to the table. The district, however, doesnt want to be stuck with any IOUs. See MONEY, 4A School allocations raise questionsBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A preliminary look at allocations for next school year is showing fewer teachers in Bradford County Schools as a result of declining enrollment. At least one school board member had questions about the priorities the allocation list revealed. Stacey Creighton was uncomfortable with the amount of positions and money cut from instruction versus support positions and administration. Im just troubled by the fact that it looks like the majority of our cuts are at the classroom level, Creighton said. Creighton wanted assurance that the resources were being used as efficiently as possible, and with student benefit in mind. She suggested giving reading coaches who provide professional development to teacherspart-time teaching loads, for example, so they use their training to help the students who need it the most. Superintendent Chad Farnsworth said the coaches are teaching, but they are not tied to one group of students, so they can move from class to class and campus to campus. Doing so would limit their impact, he said. Creighton also questioned spending money on public relations. The board hired a community relations coordinator, Brian Graham, at Farnsworths recommendation. I dont see where we can afford a full-time public relations coordinator at this time, said Creighton. She said she knows Graham is doing a good job, and she has wanted to see improved communication, but she asked if that isnt something that can be done one day a week by an OPS employee or by existing staff. Farnsworth disagreed, saying the position was about letting the public know that the school district has the best services available to educate children and reverse the 10-year decline in enrollment.

Barbecue restaurant opening next week BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Tom Perryman, owner of Toms High on the Hog Real Pit Barbecue near Santa Fe Lake, said his facility passed a state restaurant inspection on Feb. 11, which clears the way for the eatery to open on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 10 a.m. Perryman said the property, located at the corner of S.R. 100 and C.R. 21B, will feature a driving lane and parking area for fishing boat trailers and Texas rail fencing, which will promote one of his signature dishes, Texas-style brisket. The back of the property also has an area closed off by the rail fencing. Perryman said the barrier protects the buildings drain field. Perryman added that he still has one regulatory hurdle to overcome: obtaining a beer and liquor license. He said, however, that since he already has a liquor license for his familys catering business, he did not anticipate a problem obtaining a license for the restaurant. Workers started clearing the land for the building a little over a year ago. At that time Perryman intended to call his restaurant Toms Mossy Oak Barbecue. However, after he received a cease and desist letter from the well-known Mossy Oak apparel company, which claimed Perryman was infringing on the Mossy Oak trademark, Perryman changed the name to Toms High on the Hog Real Pit Barbeque, based on the recommendation of a relative. Perryman said an attorney later advised him he was not infringing on the Mossy Oak trademark. However, by that time, he had already obtained marketing material with the new name, and did not want to replace the materials. Perryman said he intends to use the remaining days of the preopening period to train the restaurants staff. Tom and Cathy Perryman started the familys catering enterprise, Country Caterers, in the 1970s. The company has staked out a niche in large-scale emergency food service with a capacity of serving 15,000 people a day. Country Caterers also provides life support and base camp services to its clients. In 2012, the Jacksonville Business Journal ranked Country Caterers as the eighth largest woman-owned business in the Jacksonville area, based on annual revenue.

4A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 The Church of Christ in Lawtey 904-782-3771 Curtis L. White, Minister G reetings to All of Bradford County in Christian Love. As always we give thanks to the God of Heaven for His condescending mercy and His Amazing Grace. Today this letter comes to you on behalf of Alfred (T.D.) Ross, a lifetime resident of Lawtey whose home caught on fire on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014. The total cost of damage to his home is not known at this time, but if you would like to help this caring, giving and reliable man in his time of need, you may do so by taking your gift to the A special account has been established in his name. Today it was him, but on tomorrow it can be you W e thank you in advance,Minister Curtis L. White For transportation please call We hope to see you there!!! Curtis L. White, MinisterCall for Help for Alfred (T.D.) Love slapped with a large water bill for months of unbilled service. There was also concern that water rates would rise beyond what many could afford. The failure to set rates that would cover the citys costs was a criticism in the state audit as well as the citys annual financial audits. Some, however, were convinced that funding wasnt the issueit was theft. Freddy Johnson said raising rates would just mean theres more money to steal. In addition to the water revenue, people wanted to know what happened to the revenue from all of the traffic citations written. Not everyone was sold on the idea of dissolving the city, but everyone agreed change is needed. Basically, all you have to do around here if you want to keep the charter is you need to pull your bootstraps up, and lets get to work and get this thing done. If not, let them take it over and be done with it, said Johnson. Joshua Davis said these matters need to be in professional hands, perhaps turned over to the county. Attorney John Maines said the citys responses to the audit were meant to signal the citys willingness to work to resolve the problems, but Johnson reminded everyone of the last meeting, when it was pointed out at that the same responses had been given to audit criticisms for years. Nobodys doing nothing youre talking about doing, he said. Weve got a couple of new council members. They might be willing to get up and start doing something, but Im just saying the other people aint doing it. Lillian Sams wondered how all of this could have been going on for so long without intervention. How could all of these people (be here), and not one of them see something was wrong with the picturethe money, everythingincluding the lawyer? she asked. Jo Williamson said the problems didnt accumulate overnight, and she empathized with council members, saying a lot had been dumped in their laps. I really appreciate what youre trying to do, she said. I feel like were attacking you, and we dont mean to do that, because youve got a lot on your shoulders. The only way were going to solve it is work together. We appreciate your service and what you do for us, Davis said. Its just everybody feels theyve been stolen from. Smith said he told legislators not to paint the citizens of Hampton with the same brush. Most get up every day and do what they are supposed to do, he said. But there was some sentiment that the failure of citizens to be more involved had at least contributed to the state of the city. In the absence of any communication from the state, the council acted on the advice of its attorney and voted to request the state appoint a receiver to oversee the interests and protect the assets of the community. The other option was to continue trying to manage the town with limited resources. It had already been determined, however, that the city was not in a position to hire new employees. The council also turned the keys to city hall over to Councilman Bill Goodge, a deputy sheriff, and it was said that vehicles belonging to the city would be gathered and secured. At the sheriffs suggestion, he and McCullough were going to try to meet with County Manager Brad Carter and County Commissioner Danny Riddick on Wednesday to at least establish some temporary assistance pending state action. Legislators have a brief period to file a local bill to dissolve the city before the next legislative session begins in March. Mary Jones Judy Dukes Diane GaskinsWomans Club hosts senior center BY DENISE DURBAN Starke Womans Club The January meeting of the Womans Club of Starke was held on Jan. 8.

Trooper Williams is assigned to Troop G.HAMPTONContinued from 1A The districts lead negotiator, Walter Carr, said Feb. 5 that the superintendent and school board had to come up with a lot of money last year to put everyone back on their correct step, and a year later they dont want to take action that would undo that. Asked in what way the districts proposal differed from what was offered before, Carr said there was only so much money to play with. BEAs acting president, Kellie Clark, said they were playing with the same amount of money, but differently. They say they want to give a step. What have they put on the table? Clark asked. The only money on the table is the allocation from the state specifically earmarked for raises. Thats something the union has accepted in its proposal, but employees dont want to let the district off the hook by accepting that money as part of a step pay increase. As Clark said, you dont get to pay part of your bill, then get it marked paid in full. How do you claim a step if you havent put money on it? Clark asked. Randy Whystell, director of human resources for the district who is also on the school boards negotiating team, said the district worked hard to get employees back on their deserved step. When new people are hired, they shouldnt be told they are three years behind where they should be, he said. According to Carr, it took around $600,000 to put employees back on step, but Clark said that money came out of employees pocketsout of the fund balance that grew while employees went without pay raises. I dont call this staying current when youre using somebody elses money to pay your bill, she said. Carr said that Bradford isnt the only district this year to use the state allocation and only the state allocation in bargaining with employees. Then he released a bombshell. The district also wants employees to agree that if there is no money to pay for this raise in next years budget, then their salaries will automatically revert back to preraise levels. Carr said other districts have put that languageor some version of itin their contracts, too, not that BEAs negotiators cared. They had no intention of agreeing to that clause. BEA lead negotiator George Bowen said the legislature had never guaranteed school funding would increase or even remain constant from year to year, and yet employees have never been asked to agree to give back a raise. Its hard to believe that Superintendent Chad Farnsworth and the current school board want to be the first to ask them to do so, he said. Carr said districts that had already settled their employee contracts for the year are now scrambling around to find additional dollars because of student enrollment reductions. Bradford is not in that position, at least, but Carr said without a clause protecting the district from future funding reductions, the district could bankrupt itself. Funding reductions this year are already eating into dwindling reserves, according to Assistant Superintendent Lisa Prevatt, who showed a chart depicting a decade-long reduction in enrollment that adds up to around 1,000 students. The funding lost with this years decline has forced further dipping into reserve funds, causing the district to fall below its 3 percent cushion. Thats whats making it even more difficult than ever, Prevatt said, pointing to a funding loss of around $400,000 because of the most recent calculation. All areas are being hit by the reduction, but around 80 percent of the districts budget goes to compensation. The superintendent and board want to give everything they can to their employees, but there is no money, and were already below whats required by law now in our fund balance, Prevatt said. Bowen said that speech would be appropriate if the union was still asking for anything more than the $507,000 state allocation for raises, but its not. The district just doesnt like the way its being distributed, he said. Were not talking about whether our proposal busts the budget. Thats not an issue, is it? he asked. Bowen also asked if the only way the district was going to agree to fund the proposed raise beyond this year is if the state awards another allocation specifically earmarked for raises. Theres no doubt about it, Carr said. Bowen said that turns the boards proposal into nothing more than a one-time bonus. The session was further strained by questions about how closely school board members had been consulted about the unions latest offer agreeing with the district on the amount of money available. BEA was told that the superintendent spoke individually with school board members that same day, but some employees were claiming to have spoken with school board members who knew nothing of the offer. Bowen said the offer and language proposed were not acceptable at all. Employees, who once again turned out to watch the negotiations, later expressed that they didnt want to settle on these terms. The school board met with its bargaining team during a private executive session Feb. 10, and the next public bargaining session is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 4 p.m.MONEYContinued from 1A

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. I love camellias. They flower in the fall and winter when nothing much else is blooming, and dont they put on a show! My grandmother, Mrs. A.J. Thomas, planted a Professor Sargent bush near the entry of her home on Washington Street. This variety produces a medium-sized red peony (like a pom-pom) flower. I hope to find one of these plants for my yard and enjoy it in her memory. It was the Gainesville Camellia Society, however, that truly deepened my appreciation for camellias. My father took the family to a show when I was a child. Ill never forget wandering amid all the perfect blossoms with my sister. She and I both favored Pink Perfection, a shell-pink small, formal double. I have two Pink Perfections in my yard at Kingsley Lake, and also a white variety, the name of which I do not know, that looks nearly identical, except for the color. Daddy took us to the show those many years ago at the invitation of Henry Lunsford, a friend of his who was very active in the society. I found his wifes name listed as a subscriber to the societys constitution. Both Mr. and Mrs. Lunsford died some years ago. The Gainesville society still puts on an annual show. This years show took place at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens on Jan. 4 and 5, so I missed it. But Im going to try and make it next year. Maybe Ill see some of my friends from Bradford County there. Here are a few facts about camellias that may be helpful if you are already caring for one or more plants, or hope to obtain one. Camellias prefer fertile, well-drained soils high in organic matter with a pH between 5.0 and 6.5. They do best in partially shaded locations with good air movement. Dense shade may lead to sparse foliage and poor flowering. Too much sun can cause yellowgreen foliage but may yield more flowers. These plants are cold hardy but should be protected from cold winds. Frost will damage tender flowers and buds. Its best to plant camellias from November through February. You want to give them time to get roots established before the heat of summer. One or two applications of fertilizer containing equal amounts of nitrogen and potassium (the first and third numbers on the label) and low phosphorous (the middle number) are ideal. There are lots of products that are specifically labeled for camellias and azaleas, but these should only be used on established, non-containerized plants. Camellias are drought-tolerant but need irrigation during extended dry periods. Apply one inch of water every 10 days to two weeks. Apply the same amount weekly during flowering. These plants need minimal pruning. Necessary grooming and shaping should be done in late winter or very early spring after blooming. Tea scale, which appears as a white, fuzzy material on the back of the leaves, is probably the most common and damaging pest of camellias. Controlling it can be problematic because its very difficult to hit the underside of the leaves with insecticidal spray. Oil sprays can be effective and may be applied during fall, winter and spring when temperatures are between 45 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Add a spreader-sticker product to your spray to increase coverage. Repeat up to three times, seven to 10 days apart if needed. More information about camellias and tea scale is available at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep002 (Camellias at a Glance) and http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ in522 (tea scale). Mary W.

Created Equal: Civil rights at librarySeeking other 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 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. The group is also looking for churches and other organizations to host viewings. Contact Paul Still at 904-368-0291 or stillpe@ aol.com to schedule a showing of one or all of the films in the series.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 We have public relations issues. There is a serious distrust in the community, in my opinion, in coming (into office), that we are not providing a quality product, Farnsworth said. If that perception is not challenged, then the district will continue losing students to private schools and surrounding counties, he added. This is just the beginning, Farnsworth said, but the district is going to get those kids back, in part by reaching out through social media, but also directly contacting private school students receiving McKay Scholarship funds to help with their tuitionmoney that would otherwise be supporting the district. Were already getting impact back off those letters and making that direct connection with those students, he said. Parents are bringing their children back, and those are dollars straight back into the district. Getting a handful of students back would be enough to pay for the community relations position, according to the superintendent, but even he doesnt see it as a permanent position. If things have turned around in several years, then the position may no longer be needed, Farnsworth said. Graham was at the Feb. 10 workshop to present his work on the districts forthcoming new website, but he did not engage much in the discussion, even when School Board Member Roman Alvarez turned it toward Grahams recently announced candidacy for the Clay County School Board. Farnsworth said he would make sure the campaigning didnt get in the way of Grahams work for the district. Graham did point out that student numbers are beginning to look up. While still down from the projections at the beginning of the year, the district has picked up 35 students since December, he said. Creighton agreed with what Farnsworth said, and said all of this is why the board agreed to hire Graham, but she repeated that her question was not aimed at Grahams performance but where the board was going to trim now that money is so tight. On the topic of teacher allocations, Assistant Superintendent Lisa Prevatt said a process the state is using to calculate funding in light of the effect of dual enrollment and virtual school on actual school enrollmenta process known as known as compressionhas had consequences on the districts student count as well, and therefore its funding. As a result, they are looking even more closely at class size to find areas where they can make additional adjustments, she said. The high school and middle school are each losing two basic education teaching positions. Starke Elementary is also down 2.5 positions according to the list, although Southside will pick up 1.5. That half-position is being shared with Starke Elementary. Lawtey Elementary is adding a teaching position, although one Tile I teaching position must be replaced by filling a Title I paraprofessional position because of the funding lost there, which was actually related to receiving a higher school grade. No changes are planned for Brooker and Hampton right now, but Prevatt said the smaller schools have to be watched closely because small changes can require shifts. The growth in the building construction program means there is need for a new position at the technical center, but 1.33 positions are being cut from the general education teaching category. There is also no money for the district level curriculum resource teacher position, but Prevatt said the teacher would be offered another post. The district continues to be creative with noninstructional positions, sharing a media specialist position between Starke and Southside. A paraprofessional position could be used to fill in for the retiring media specialist at Lawtey Elementary. Changes arent all based on enrollment. The loss of one of two drivers education teachers at the high school was said to be the result of fewer traffic citations being written in Hampton. While the goal is to take the burden off the general fund, that isnt always possible. Grant funds used to pay technology specialists have run out, so those two positions will be picked up by the district. The positions listed here do not include the vacant positions that were also cut. Prevatt said the good news is that she cant think of a case where someone actually lost his or her job.

School Rising groundwater levels follow wet weatherThe last three months were wetter than normal, with a district-wide average of 12.1 inches, about 3 inches higher than the long-term average, according to the Suwannee River Water Management District. January rainfall was 1.8 inches above average. The wettest November-January on record was in 1947-1948 with over 17 inches, and the driest was in 1956-1957 with just 1.4 inches. The wet weather caused groundwater levels in the upper Floridan aquifer to rise in January after falling steadily since the almost record-setting wet summer. Forty percent of the districts monitor wells had levels in the top 25 percent of readings, double the number seen in December. Conditions on the Santa Fe River are typical for this time of year, according to the district. Levels on the Suwannee River are higher than usual for early February, but still well below flood levels. Recent rainfall patterns have favored northern Florida over southern Georgia, which has helped keep river levels stable without the rapid fluctuations that occurred in 2013. River residents should remain vigilant over conditions in southern Georgia, since a single large storm can cause problems downstream quickly. February, March and April are the peak flood season in northern Florida.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School wrestler Jarraid Forsyth won the Region 1-1A championship in his weight class and will be joined by two of his teammates at the state finals, which will take place this weekend, Feb. 14-15, at the Lakeland Center. Forsyth, a senior who is undefeated this season, will be making his third straight appearance in the state finals 3 from BHS wrestle second grade, but they returned when she was a sophomore. I met Eugene almost immediately when we moved back, within a few months of moving back, Barbara said, adding, He was so cute. They met each other at a convenience store on U.S. 301 across from Bradford High School. Eugene had been riding in a car with his brother, while Barbara was actually in a vehicle with a cousin of Eugenes. That cousin prompted the meeting between the two. I was talking about (Eugene) and how cute he was, Barbara said. (His cousin) dared me to go over and introduce myself. Eugene said, I was sort of surprised. I had never been approached that way. For their first date, Eugene was able to borrow his brothers car. He and Barbara went to dinner, then to the drive-in theater that was in Starke at that time. It seemed like the drive-in was something you did just about every weekend, or you rode up and down 301, Barbara said. Eugene said, Yeah, that was the main thing to doride up and down 301, with Barbara adding, That was a date. Back then, you didnt do a whole lot. They date for only about a year before they got married. Barbara said she knew immediately that Eugene was the man for her. It was a connection as soon as we met, she said. We were like together non-stop. He would walk out to my house because he didnt have a vehicle. I lived out on 301. Hed walk out there at night and walk back. Every now and then, Eugene would get to borrow a siblings BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer You think of mama or dada as babies first words, but what about I do? OK, those werent really the first words out of the mouths of Barbara and Eugene Johns of Starke, but it does seem as if they were meant to be together as they were born one day apart at Bradford Hospital. This Valentines Day arrives shortly after the couple celebrated their 37th anniversary, which was in December. They met each other at Bradford High School, but were together much earlier than that. Actually, I tell people I picked him out in the nursery, Barbara said. Barbara was born on Dec. 26, while Eugene arrived on Dec. 27, though it wasnt actually a full day that separated their births. Barbara said it was something like eight hours. Regardless, she was born first, and Eugene teases her about being older than him. Its neat when youre 18, Barbara said. Its not so cool when youre 50. As if being born less than a day apart at the same hospital wasnt interesting enough, Barbara and Eugene each have a twin sibling. Barbaras twin is a brother named John, while Eugenes twin is a sister named Betty. Barbara and Eugene joke that maybe everything concerning their births isnt what it seems. If you saw a picture of all of us, Barbara said, referring to her, Eugene and their respective twins, Im the oddball out. My twin looks more like (Eugene) and his sister.

2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday Feb. 13, 2014 February 19th. Starting Thursday, Feb. 27, and running through Sunday, March 2, the Bradford Sportsmens Farm will run its annual Florida Challenge sporting clays event at its shooting range in Graham. Prize money ranging from $25,000 to $30,000 will be issued to the winners of the event.   Approximately 300 shotgunners from across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico will participate. Along with the participants, family members and avid followers will also be staying in our local hotels and camping facilities.   It will be one of the larger competition sporting clay events in the United States. The owners of the Sportsmens Farm, Pat and Patsy Welch and Al and Linda Stefanelli, have really worked hard to make it one of the premier sporting clay organizations in the United States. As a matter of fact, it has ranked among the top 10 in the United States for the last three years in throwing National Sporting Clay Association competition targets. If you are shy about pitting your shooting skills against some of the best competition shooters, there will be a lot of vendors and displays available at the event.   Some really beautiful shotguns will be displayed and sold. A gunsmith will also be available if you have any necessary firearm modifications.   Food vendors will also be available. Not all local shotgunners are shy about participating in large competitions. Dwayne Hardee, Ashley Moore, Gary Wise, Chad Welch, Claude Hardee and Edwin Johns can all shoot well in the big competitions, according to Pat Welch.Welch did not mention himself, but he has been known to win a few competitions.   With its sporting clay competitions, the Sportsmens Farm backs numerous charitable organizations that include the Will Courtney Foundation, the Starke Rotary Club, the Starke Kiwanis Club, the Rock Volleyball Program, Wolfsons Children Hospital and the 4-H Club of America. The facility also provides classes for basic pistol shooting and for concealed carry. Additionally, on a weekday basis, the facility is available to members for shooting practice. The Bradford Sportsmens Farm is located off of Highway 18 in Graham, approximately 3 miles east of the 301-18 intersection.   In Graham, you will turn right at the designated sign and continue until you reach the facility.Outdoors outlookSo we continue to march toward spring with precipitation that has been better than the average over the past decade. Should we get another summer like last year, we could see the Keystone lakes look better than they have for quite a few years. Already, fishermen are talking about how Orange Lake looks. Apparently, a boat can already go from Lochloosa to Orange by way of Cross Creek, and fishermen are in hopes that Orange Lake will return to its once legendary status as the bass capital of North Florida. Within the next month, buck deer will begin to shed their antlers. Hunting for shed antlers is a great family activity and allows avid hunters to evaluate their property for next years prospects. Some people actually build shed traps to help add to their collection of deer antlers.   A few posts and some field fence are all that are needed.   The post can be set in a Z or semicircle formation and covered with field fence.   Once the structure is set, corn is distributed at the bottom of the fence.   As the bucks subsequently bend forward for the corn, their antlers will likely entangle with the fence wire.    Even a loose entanglement Fins, Fur & Tails Pat Welch displays one of his sporting clays trophies.

The local fishing reports on the crappie bite indicate that it is on one day and off the next.   Consistent reports of the crappie spawn can be found only in lakes from Gainesville southward. Newnans and Lochloosa have produced the better crappie catches in our local area. Crescent Lake, which is south of Palatka, has also been consistently productive. The only indication of the bass spawn seems to come from the consistent 72-degree spring runs that dump into Lake George and the St. Johns east of Ocala. Notwithstanding that report, Len Andrews is now at Kingsley Lake. Len comes from Virginia each year to sight fish the bedding females on Kingsley Lake. With the exception of Randy Harris reports, the inshore west coast reports are also inconsistent. Harris apparently has been landing quite a few overslot-sized reds and nice trout as well around Steinhatchee, and the accompanying photo of Joey Tyson confirms it. 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.

underneath the second floor windows and vertical mullions, and another under the windows in the first floor. Santa Fe College wanted to expand the building at the back, and install an elevator to make the second floor accessible to all. Drivas had the bricks at the back carefully removed, and reused them to restore the Call Street faade. Along the sides and at the back of the building he would use new brick when necessary, matching the originals as closely as possible. He restored the entire building as closely to the exact original as he could; including the Chicagostyle windows in the faade and the decorative, corbelled brickwork on the buildings parapet. For the amount of money spent to restore that building, you could have torn it down and built another one, he said. but in such cases, you arent restoring a building. You are preserving history. Starke businessman and philanthropist Guy Andrews financed the reconstruction for the college. The interior of the building was gutted. Unfortunately, a collection of military insignia and World War II-era murals painted on interior walls could not be preserved. Drivas and others took before and after photos during demolition and reconstruction. Today, Santa Fe College uses the building for classes; a variety of college and community events are held in its first-floor auditorium. On the second floor is the Eugene L. Matthews Bradford County Museum, which collects and stores the countys history. Drivas has definite opinions about local architecture. Much of Starke architecture is Cracker vernacular, he said. This is not a term of insult. It is a commonly used Florida architectural term to suggest that Starkes earliest buildings werent designed by architects, but were constructed according to plans drawn up by owners and building contractors. In some cases along Call Street, the 1800s-era buildings may have been constructed by the same contractor, using a similar design from one building to the next. Many of the bricks in Starkes historic Call Street district may have come from Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 3B M 263 N. Temple Ave Hwy 301 NorthSTARKE(across from Winklers) Alterations Embroidery Wedding Gowns Dry Cleaning(904) 966-2002Family Owned & Operated since 1993 BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Starke architect Spyros Drivas was born in Sparta, Greece, but was raised in Athens. As a young man he attended the Athens Polytechnic Academy, normally an unusually fine place to study the foundations of Western architecture. The period during which Drivas studied, however, was problematic. A military junta had overthrown the democratically elected Greek Parliament in 1967. It was the Cold War era, and the American CIA may have been involved. A leftish government administrator was assassinated; the government tried to call it a drunk-driving incident. (Reference the 1969 Academy Award winning film Z.) Greeks began to revolt against what was in reality a military dictatorship. Drivas left Greece to study architecture at the University of Florida in Gainesville in 1968. Only a few years after he left, a tank would crash through the gates of the Polytechnic, confronting student demonstrators Blood was shed; lives were lost. Safely in Gainesville, Drivas finished his bachelors degree in 1972 and his masters the following year. He married Bradford Countys Lavon Collins in 1976, and worked for a while in private-sector architectural companies in Tampa. Over the following almost 40 years, Drivas designed and built buildings all over Central and North Florida. Around 1978, he left South Florida to become college architect for what was then called Florida Community College at Jacksonville. At the same time, he and Lavon moved back to Bradford County, and he began the daily commute. Working from his home office, in 1982, for example, he was hired to remodel Jacksonvilles old Engineers Building, a former Cadillac showroom at the corner of State State and Main streets. In 1986, Drivas was appointed school architect for the Duval County Board of Education, providing designs, schematic drawings and site plans for such schools as Mandarin High and Oceanway and North Shore middle schools. By now, Drivas was taking on $25 and $30 million projects. From 1986 to 2002, he was director of facilities, planning and university architect at the University of North Florida. During that period, Drivas was also given contracts by the Bradford School Board and served as its managing architect from 1986 until 1992. He designed a new library for Architect Drivas helped build Starkes cityscapeBradford High School, renovated the auditorium and added a music suite. He put the entrance to the school at what had been the side of the campus, to that parking and the entrance were in the same area. At Lawtey Community School, he said, he put the library at the center of the school where it belonged, and renovated the school cafeteria. He added two additions to Bradford middle school: a computer lab and the family center. He added kindergarten additions at Starke and Southside elementary schools. But Drivas is important to Starkes off-campus architectural landscape as well. He designed the new public library and had input into the design and construction of schools and churches around the county, including projects that never got built when clients ran out of money. Two of Drivas most important jobs were not designing new buildings for Starke or the county; it was saving and preserving existing buildings that play roles in Bradfords history. One of those is called the Rosenberg or the JonesRosenberg Building. The other is the Call Street building that housed the old Mitchells Drug store and, in the 1940s, the post office. It now houses Prevatts Restaurant and various offices upstairs. The Jones-Rosenberg Building rests at the corner of Thompson and Call streets, next to the railroad tracks. Its connection to Starke pioneer Dewitt C. Jones is unclear, and perhaps misguided. Former Jones-Gallagher Funeral Home director Steve Futch said he has no information to indicate that Jones built or ever owned the building, though he couldnt refute that possibility. Futch said he knew Jones owned a one-story brick building right next door to the Rosenberg Building and used that building as a hardware store. Fire insurance maps at UFs Smathers Library show a wooden-frame building until at least 1885. By the next 1901 map, the building was brick. In the 1940s and the World War II era, the building was the keystone of Sam Rosenbergs variety and second-hand furniture store. The Rosenberg Building allegedly housed a bordello at one time and was most certainly a bar, catering to Camp Blanding soldiers. In 1991, Drivas was hired to do a $600,000 renovation to shore up the building and add 2,000 square feet of floor space. The effort would also save a building in Starkes business districta district listed in the U.S. National Registry of Historic Places. When Drivas first entered the abandoned Rosenberg Building, the wooden floor was largely gone. Digging not very deeply with the toe of his shoe, he discovered that the interior six-, fourand two-brick pilasters and the exterior walls in the twostory brick building rested only on North Florida sand and soil. The worst problem, though, was the fact that over the years, the building had settled, brought on by its proximity to the railroad. Drivas could almost see the building wobble and shake every time a train went by, as they did many times a day less than 100 feet away. He began by shoring up the foundation. He pumped an epoxy cement under the pilasters and the rest of the building; when the bonding gel mixed with Florida sand, it formed a kind of cement. In the buildings faade, he inserted a steel plate The Rotary Club of Starkes seventh annual Beast Feast will be held Saturday, March 22, at 6 p.m. at the Bradford Sportsmens Farm in Graham.

Otherwise, he made that walk from Starke to Barbaras house, which was on the other side of where Ceremonial Fireworks is. That was a good walk, Eugene said, laughing. The couple got married in 1976. They still had no car, though Eugene was able to borrow his brothers car that day. There was no trip afterward, though. Our honeymoon consisted of the Pizza Hut, Eugene said, with Barbara adding, Our matron of honor and best man went with us. They rented an apartment above a house in Starke. Eugene was within walking distance of his job with the city of Starke, but he actually got picked up by his co-workers at 3:30 a.m. He rode on the back of a garbage truck. I lasted probably six months to a year at that job, he said. Actually, it wasnt a bad job. All I did was stand on the back of the truck and hook the cable to the back of the Dumpster. Thats all I did. That was my main job. However, at that point in his life, it wasnt necessarily a job he wanted. It was the thought of being 17 and on the back of a garbage truck, Eugene said. Eugene said he probably made $79-$89 per week. It was tough, especially since Barbara had yet to finish high school and was expecting their first child. At first, it was hard for them to make their money last until Eugene got paid again, but Eugene said it didnt take long for them to adjust their spending habits. After a few months of that, you learn to save, he said. If you dont earn much, you try to stretch it out. We did pretty good. Barbara said, I think the first few years were so much trial and error, but she added that being young and having those early struggles helped them in the long run. I think getting married so early made us a little more independent and a lot more practical in life, she said. Aside from learning how to live within their means, the young couple was faced with their first child, Brian, being born with health issues. He was born without a soft spot on his head. He had to go in at 3 months and have five bones removed from the top of his head, Barbara said. We were only married at that time four or five months. That was probably the toughest time in our whole lives, our first year of marriage. No matter what trials life has thrown at them, Barbara and Eugene have made it work. They successfully raised three childrenBrian, Lisa and Justinand have five grandchildren they love spending time with. They wouldnt be here if we hadnt met and gotten together, Barbara said. With a mischievous gleam in his eye, Eugene asked Barbara, You sure? Im sure, she replied. Eugene said if he hadnt have met Barbara, hed probably be living in a little trailer out in the woods. I dont know if I could take care of myself, he said. Id be in trouble if I had to. Barbara was quick to say, No, you wouldnt. In fact, she talked of how helpful Eugene has been throughout their marriage especially when Barbara went to college while the couples three children were still at home. Hes washing dishes, cooking supper and taking care of the children, Barbara said, adding, I couldnt have done it without him. Barbara said Eugene has continued to be helpful around the house, though he downplays that, saying, Ive learned pretty good how to load the dishwasher and then unload it. Barbara said the only thing Eugene doesnt do is laundry. He said that was his next mission, to learn how to do that. After a few seconds of thought, though, Eugene said, I might skip that one. I might bleach the wrong things. Of course, if Eugene did make such a mistake, history JOHNSContinued from 1B indicates there would be no ensuing argument. Thats one thing Barbara and Eugene have avoided. Weve been together a long time, and I cant say weve really had a fight, Barbara said. We talk it out and show respect. Eugene cant help but inject a little humor into the conversation, saying, She tells me what to do, and I do it. Thats not true, Barbara said, laughing. Though theyve been married 37 years, some things never change. Barbara tells Eugene every morning she loves him, while Eugene kisses her goodbye every time he leaves the house, no matter how short his trip may be. Still, Eugenes not what you would describe as mushy, Barbara said, but thats OK. I like him the way he is, she said, readily admitting, Im probably not a romantic, either. What best describes them is practical, Barbara said. Thats why Valentines Day isnt necessarily a big dealit comes shortly after Christmas, their anniversary and both of their birthdays. The day is not forgotten, though. He always makes sure I have something, Barbara said. He knows I like plants, so hell bring home a plant. I always get a card. Eugene will sometimes give Barbara candy or a cute, Valentines-related item, such as a plush animal that says, I love you. I try to change it up, Eugene said. I try to remember what I got (the previous) year, if I can. If I cant, its the luck of the draw. On Valentines Day, Barbara will prepare Eugene his favorite meal. He likes beans and rice, fried chicken and biscuits, Barbara said. More important than any gifts is the fact they are together. My thing is hes always with me on Valentines Day, Barbara said. We eat a good meal. We just enjoy each others company. Theyve been in each others company as husband and wife for 37 years, though Eugene said, It doesnt feel like weve been married that long. It really doesnt. Time flies pretty fast. Its gone fast, Barbara agreed. Ill tell you what, I wouldnt change it for anything. My life has been wonderful, being married to him and raising our kids together. Perhaps it would have been futile for Barbara to attempt to change things, even if she wanted to. She and Eugene may very well have met and had the same outcome if they werent born a day apart at the old Bradford Hospital, but then again, that certainly could have been viewed as an indicator of what was to come. It definitely was meant to be, Barbara said. I couldnt imagine being with anybody else. Eugene and Barbara Johns are pictured on a vacation to the mountains in 1984. Traveling more is like to do in retirement. Just get in the car and just travel the United States, Eugene said. We

According to Capt. Barry Warren, SPD executed the warrants for the arrests Saturday, starting around 4:10 a.m. to give the officers an element of surprise in the arrests. Charles Jackson Jr., 54, of Starke faces the most charges after the operation as he was selling drugs out of his home on Old Lawtey Road. According to the arrest report, when officers arrived early Saturday morning and didnt get a response at the door, they breached the residence and found Jackson in a hallway. Jackson apparently tried to flush some of the drugs down the toilet before the officers breached the door, although several pieces of crack cocaine were located in the bathroom. Also found in the home were several containers with various amounts of crack cocaine and cocaine, marijuana, a metal grinder containing marijuana, various drug paraphernalia items, Oxycodone pills, approximately $2,000 in cash in various places leads to 6 arrestsin the house and a Rohm .22 revolver and ammunition.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Union County High School seniors Daquin Buddy Edwards and Phillip Lillie were determined to be the best they could be on the football field, and their efforts have been rewarded as they signed letters of intent on National Signing Day (Feb. 5). Edwards, who will be going to Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., said he was confident at a young age that he would get this opportunity. When I set my mind to something, I do it, he said. I had my mind, passion and heart set on this day. Still, that didnt make the day any less emotional. Im just really, really excited, Edwards said. Its a blessing. I couldnt do it without people pushing me and the community pushing me. Im just so thankful to have this day. Lillie, who will be going to Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory, N.C., recalls his first year at Union County High School after moving to the area. He was a sophomore and probably the smallest player on the team, he said. The coachesI dont think they had any faith in me at all, Lillie said. I took my 10th-grade year, and I used it as motivation to be better than the others. I just stayed in the weight room days and days, and stayed on the receiver. He has soft hands and catches everything thrown his way, Reynolds said, adding that Dinkins runs the best routes of any receiver hes been around, whether it be in high school or college. Hes just a tremendous player, Reynolds said. I cant say enough how good he is. Dinkins said hes ready to do whatever he needs to do to keep getting better, whether its working on his speed, his technique coming off the line of scrimmage or improving his route running. Im going to do it all, he said. Reynolds said, The world is his oyster. He can make some great things happen. He can go as far as hes willing to work. So far, hes been willing to work very hard. Dinkins said he cant imagine what it will feel like to step onto the field for the first time as a UAB player, but hes looking forward to it. Im just ready to play college football, he said he needs is an opportunity, and he will fly. He will definitely succeed. Hes an exceptional athlete. On top of that, hes a high-quality kid. Dinkins, who caught 37 passes for 915 yards and nine touchdowns, gave his verbal commitment to UAB last June. He said he enjoyed meeting offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Richard Owens, who really seems to care about his players. Plus, Dinkins enjoyed his visit to the campus. Theyve got a nice campus, nice students, Dinkins said. I just fell in love with everything over there. Reynolds said Dinkins is the total package when it comes to BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School senior Kenny Dinkins admitted he wasnt sure if his dream of playing football beyond high school would come true, but he did his part, working hard to try to accomplish just that. The work paid off as Dinkins signed a letter of intent to play at the University of Alabama at Birmingham on National Signing Day (Feb. 5). Dinkins, a wide receiver, said, Its very exciting because not a lot of people get this opportunity to go to the next level. BHS head coach Steve Reynolds said Dinkins has put forth the effort necessary to get to that level. Kennys work ethic is second to none, Reynolds said. I dont know if Ive coached a harder working player in my time as a coach. He fully understands what type of commitment is involved with a college-level athlete.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Six weightlifters representing Bradford and Union County high schools competed at the state finals in Kissimmee this past weekend, but none placed high enough in their respective weight classes to earn medals. The top six lifters in each class earned medals. The areas highest finisher was Unions Jessica Brown, who placed ninth in the 154 class with a 310-pound total (165 bench press, 145 clean and jerk). Brown was competing in a tough class that featured Gainesvilles Jessica Kinsler, who won her third straight championship with a 440 total. In all, five from Union competed. Courtney Personette and Kristen Cook each placed BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School led by as many as 11 points and had a seven-point lead at the half, but couldnt hang on to extend its season, losing 60-56 to top seed Fort White in the semifinals of the District 5-4A boys basketball tournament on Feb. 7 in Starke. Too many quick shots, Bradford head coach Adrian Chandler said of the second half. We had possession control of the ball, but then it was one pass and one shot. The fourth-seeded Tornadoes (8-16) had a 13-2 run to open the second quarter, sparked by Caleb Jones and Alex Mejias. Mejias scored on a drive to the basket, while Jones made two free throws, followed by a layup on an assist from Shawn Aaron. Mejias then made a 3-pointer to put Bradford up 25-18. Keaaris Ardley scored four consecutive points off of a layup following a turnover and two free throws to put the Tornadoes up by 11. Bradford lost its lead in the third quarter, but Jones got it back with a 3-pointer to open the fourth quarter. Bradfords Kenny Dinkins later made two free throws to tie the score at 49all, but Fort White took the lead for good on a 3-pointer by Qurin Porter. In the final 2:30, the Tornadoes went 1-of-4 from the field and committed three turnovers. Dinkins was intentionally fouled after a steal with 35 seconds left. He made both free throws to pull the Bradford to within three, but the Tornadoes could not get a good look at the basket to possibly tie the game. Jones, who made a 3-pointer before the final buzzer, scored 21 points for the second straight game to lead Bradford, while Ardley and Mejias each scored 13 points. Dinkins added seven, while Aaron had two. Fort White (25-2) defeated Santa Fe the following night to win the District 5 championship. Visit StarkeJournal.com to view photos from this game. (Membership required.)Tornadoes reached semis with 3-point winBradford reached the Fort White half, defeats BHS 60-56semifinals of the District 5 tournament by defeating Interlachen 47-44 in a Feb. 4 quarterfinal game. Jones led the team with 21 points, while Ardley and Tyler Wainwright each had six. Dinkins and Elijah Higginbotham each added five points, while Aaron and Don Jeffers each had two. Prior to the tournament, the Tornadoes suffered losses to Eastside (47-36), Santa Fe (5347), Bishop Kenny (71-33) and Palatka (58-40). Dinkins and Ardley led Bradford in the Eastside game with 12 and eight points, respectively, while Jones and Wainwright each had six. Aaron and Benjamin Nichols each scored two points. Against Santa Fe, Aaron and Ardley each had 11 points, while Mejias had 10. Wainwright and Jones scored eight and five points, respectively, while Drian Jenkins scored two. Jones and Mejias scored 13 and 10 points, respectively, against Bishop Kenny. Aaron had four points, while Ardley and Wainwright each had three. In the regular-season finale against Palatka, Ardley and Dinkins scored nine and eight points, respectively, with Jeffers and Mejias each scoring seven. Nichols and Jones had four and three points, respectively, while Wainwright had two. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Williston High School ended Union Countys basketball season Feb. 7 with a 47-40 win over the Tigers in a District 7-1A semifinal game in Lake Butler. Williston coach Steve Faulkner described the fouland turnoverfilled contest as ugly basketball. It was ugly, he said. Good thing we built a 12-point lead. I felt like we just kind of held on. They made a great run on us in the second half, made a bunch of 3s. I wish we would have made a few more free throws. We just gutted that one out. The Red Devils started the game with a 5-0 run, but Union County fought back, taking an 8-7 lead midway through the first quarter when Geordyn Green sank two free throws after being fouled on a fast break. Williston opened up a threepoint lead by the end of the first quarter and pushed its advantage to 31-20 at the half. Throughout most of the game, the Red Devils used a full-court press. The Tigers (6-18) routinely broke the press, only to later turn the ball over under their own basket. Union County coach Rufus Jefferson said his team could not settle into its half-court game. I tried to get the guys to settle down, he said. It was more like we were out there running track than playing basketball. Jefferson added that a lack of movement on offense contributed to the teams 13 turnovers. We were throwing the basketball around a lot more than we were moving our feet, he said. Faulkner said the press offset his own teams shortcomings. We kept turning it over in the second half, but our press had them turning it over right back, he said. The Red Devils extended See UCHS, 12B 15th in the 119 and 199 classes, respectively. Kaylee Findley was 16th in the unlimited class, while Kayla Geraghty was 20th in the 169 class. Their totals were as follows: Personette 135 bench, 115 clean and jerk, 250 total; Cook 145-145-290; Findley 195145-340; and Geraghty 160-125285. The winners of those classes were: Kyle Shelley of Navarre in the 119 class, 345 total; Karissa Lacy of Spruce Creek in the 169 class, 390 total; Angelica Greene of Fleming Island in the 199 class, 395 total; and Sabrina Palmares of Clay in the unlimited class, 430 total. Christin Hopkins was Bradfords lone state qualifier. Like Personette, she competed in the 119 class. Hopkins had a 245 total (110, 135) to place 20th.

after going 4-0 in the 160-pound class at the Region 1 meet. He was there to compete, Bradford coach Chris Adams said. He wasnt going to let anybody take it from him. Forsyth advanced past the first round of the tournament by forfeit before pinning Paxons Anthony Dukes in 2:54. He then defeated Suwannees Shawn Brown 10-7 before defeating West Nassaus Michael Dudzinski 9-5 in the finals. Adams said the match against Brown was Forsyths toughest of the season. Brown and Forsyth were ranked number one and two in the state, respectively, heading into the meet. It proved to him mentally that hes a champion at heart, Adams said, adding that he firmly believes Forsyth will win his class state championship. Also qualifying for state are Bradford sophomores J.T. Griffis, who was third in the 113 class, and Shayne KahakuaLodivero, who was fourth in the 106 class. Griffis, who was one win from qualify for state last year, went 3-1 after a first-round bye. He recorded a 19-10 major decision over Bays Chance Layfield before getting pinned in 3:56 by Wakullas Larry Smith, who would go on to win the championship. Griffis bounced back, pinning Yulees John Parker in 2:22 before facing Layfield again and recording a 13-0 major decision. Kahakua-Lodivero, who went 3-2, started out with a 20-5 technical fall over Bays Gabriel Meyer and a 1:10 pin of Suwannees Michael Santangelo. Waltons William Pickren pinned Kahakua-Lodivero in 2:39, but Kahakua-Lodivero bounced back in a big way, pinning Bozemans D.J. Hanson in just 41 seconds before an 11-3 loss to Florida Highs Max Metcalf. Adams said Griffis and Kahakua-Lodivero both look up to Forsyth, but are now creating their own legacies as BHS wrestlers. Theyve both come into their own at the right time, Adams said. Brandon Funderburk and Blake Addison also competed for Bradford at the Region 1 meet. Funderburk went 1-2 in the 120 class, while Addison went 0-2 in the 132 class. Funderburks win came by pinning Suwannees Brandon Task in 33 seconds. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 WRESTLEContinued from 1B valentine adsEdgewater Brick Yard, located at the time on the outskirts of Starke. Drivas is not fond of subsequent attempts to cover the buildings, whether in stucco, as was done to the Dover Building in the 1940s, or later with what Drivas called cheap, fake materials, in evidence on some Call Street buildings. He would have encouraged owners to restore buildings to their original look, with new primary materials. Hes also not thrilled with addons such as later extensions to the current courthouse (which is not his design) when the original building needed extra space. (Drive by and see the contrast between the light and airy original center building and its two thick, bulky arms.) It was a beautiful building set back from the road, an authoritative building on a hill. Now its justeh, he said. Drivas retired in 2002, but continues to design public buildings out of his Starke office. He points with some amount of pride to the fact that he has designed buildings for all education levels: the K-12, community college and university systems. He has significant works in at least five North Florida counties, stretching from Duval to Alachua to Putnam. So what? You get 10 million in contracts here; over 100 million in that county over there; 50 million over there. After a while, you begin to lose track, he added. He wont even try to count the number of residential homes hes put together, including his own. He pointed out that the buildings and the design are what last and live far longer than the memories of the money paid to build them. He points out that Starke has some nice residential and commercial architecture and hopes it will be thoughtfully preserved over the years, with cost being only one of several decisions that may need to be made. And he hopes all of Starkes better Call Street historical buildings wont again be thoughtlessly covered over with stuccoreal or fake.DRIVASContinued from 3B

Adkins hinted at a bit of nervousness, saying she wasnt sure if she was ready to take that next step after high school, but at the same time, shes also looking forward to it. She described the opportunity as amazing. Im excited to go down there and start a new chapter in my life, she said. It fulfills a lifelong dream Adkins has had ever since she began playing T-ball. I always knew I wanted to play collegiate softball, she said. Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said its a good opportunity for Adkins. He said Indian River has a solid reputation statewide and nationally for its program, which is good at moving players on into four-year schools after two years. Plus, Davis said the school and Adkins should mesh well. Its really a good fit because theyre known as a blue-collar, hard-working team, Davis said. Thats exactly what she isan extremely hard worker whos dedicated to softball and her academics. I think its the perfect fit for her. Adkins said she had some offers from four-year colleges, but most were up north. She said she didnt want to travel that far from home just yet. I just wanted to stay closer to home, where I could come back and see my family, she said. Im a big family person. Davis believes Adkins already has the mental makeup to transition to the college game. He said Adkins keeps her focus and doesnt let what happens in a game affect her, whether its good or bad. Shes such a stoic, young player as far as her demeanor on the mound, Davis said. She is always positive, whether she gives up a home run or she just struck out three in a row. You cant tell by looking at her face. Shes one who gives her best effort every game mentally and physically. Adkins was a second-team all-state selection last year, going 26-2 with 15 shutouts, 204 strikeouts in 175 innings and an ERA of 1.36. Davis expects another solid year from Adkins before she graduates from BHS. Ive got high expectations for her, Davis said. Shes a great pitcher. She stays in control of games. Were playing a tougher schedule this year, but I know she can handle the teams that were going to play. Shes going to keep us in ball games and give us an opportunity to play. When the time comes to step onto the field for the first time as a player at the next level, Adkins said, Ill probably just be so excited and have to probably calm my nerves down a little. fullback. He also played on the defensive line in high school, but was eager to keep making his mark in the offensive backfield. I love running the ball, Edwards said. I love blocking. I love showing what Im capable of. I just feel like if I get the chance to get the ball in my hands, I can do something with it. Union head coach Ronny Pruitt said it was fun to watch someone Edwards size-2, 240carry the ball and do so successfully. Edwards averaged 6 yards per carry this past season, gaining 808 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns on 132 carries. Gods blessed him with the physical attributes to be successful at the next level, Pruitt said. Hes taken advantage of it and done what hes needed to do to make his dream come true. Pruitt said Edwards most likely will not get as many carries as he did at UCHS, but had little doubt that Edwards will excel. At the next level, hes going to be a blocker and a pass receiver, Pruitt said. Hell adapt to that very well, carry on and do the same things he did here. Lillie said Brevard College was also showing interest in him, but not to the extent that LenoirRhyne was. When he took his visit to the Lenoir-Rhyne campus, he knew thats where he needed to be. As soon as I went there, I fell in love with the town, Lillie said. Its so much like Union County. Its a small town, Christian-like and everybody knows everybody. Its great. As for where Lillie will play at Lenoir-Rhyne, that may be a little up in the air. Hes played defensive back, wide receiver and running back at UCHS. Last season, he rushed for 221 yards and seven touchdowns, while on defense he made 42 tackles, recovered one fumble and intercepted one pass. Pruitt said he has talked to the cornerback, safety and running back coaches at Lenoir-Rhyne. They all want Lillie at their respective positions. Phillip is a true utility player, Pruitt said. Hes got the physical size to play all three of those positions. Hes one of those I see going in at one position, but possibly coming out in another. (Lenoir-Rhyne) realized that when they recruited him. Lillie said his preference is to play safety, but he can see himself being tried at various positions. Thats OK. Lillie just wants the chance to play. I just love the game of football, he said. Pruitt said theres not as much change from high school to college at the defensive back position as there is at running back, so it just may work out that Lillie winds up playing his preferred position. He likes contact, Pruitt said. Hes a physical guy. Whether it be safety or corner, hes going to come up and make a play. Thats primarily why (Lenoir-Rhyne) got him, because of how physical he is and what he brings to the table. On stepping onto the field for the first time as a Liberty player, Edwards said, Im going to be nervous, but nervous is good for me. If Im nervous, Im ready. Lillies ready, too. Its going to feel good, and its going to be a show, Lillie said.SIGNINGSContinued from 6B Bradford High School senior Ashton Adkins signs her letter of intent to play softball at Indian River State College.

Keystone Heights High Schools season came to an end Feb. 4 with a 76-37 loss to Santa Fe in the quarterfinals of the District 5-4A boys basketball tournament at Bradford High School. D.J. Mayer and Buck Shobris led the Indians (3-19) with nine and eight points, respectively, while Earl Hall had seven points. Micah Brown and Brandon Nicholas each scored four points, while Austin Bass and Travis Wheeler each had three points. Juwan Crum added two points. Santa Fe would go on to be the district runner-up to Fort White. Prior to the tournament, Keystone closed the regular season with a 34-28 win over Union County on Jan. 31 in Keystone. The Indians led the Tigers from start to finish and got six points each from three players: Nicholas, Shobris and Wheeler. Kyler Teague had five points, while Hall had three. Bass, Brown, Mayer and Anton Noble each had two points. Brown and Hall finished with five rebounds each, while Brown also had four steals. Nicholas had four assists. Union was led by Kyle Moshers 10 points, while Princeton Alexander added six. Austin Dukes and Parker Hodgson each scored four points, while Larry Collins and Daryl Watkins each scored two. Alexander and Mosher had nine and eight rebounds, respectively, with Alexander also coming up with four steals. their lead to 35-23 with 2:45 left in the third quarter. However, momentum appeared to shift to the Tigers after Willistons Earl Brown was called for a technical for hanging onto the rim after a dunk. Unions Kyle Mosher made one of two free throws after the technical. Austin Dukes followed with a field goal, and Daquin Edwards sank two free throws to close Willistons lead to 37-33 with 6:58 left in the game. From the beginning of the fourth quarter until the 2:26 mark, neither team scored a field goal. Instead, they traded fouls, traveling violations and turnovers. The game, from midway in the third through midway in the fourth, was extremely ugly on both sides, Faulkner said. Mosher broke the drought with a 3-pointer, bringing the Tigers to within three. With 2:30 left in the game, Williston led 39-36. The Red Devils then went on an 8-4 run to close out the game, capitalizing on missed 3-pointers from Union and Tiger fouls, which were made to stop the clock. Green gave the Tigers their final boost, sinking a 3-point shot with 19.8 seconds left. Jefferson said the Tigers shooting percentage of 34 percent was the biggest factor in his teams loss. We picked the wrong night to be off, he said. I think we only shot like 12 for 35. We usually shoot a lot better than that. Jefferson said part of his teams lack of production rested with key players he had to bench because of foul trouble. Leading scorer Mosher spent much of the game on the bench with four fouls, as did Green. Dairon Alexander also had four fouls, and Dukes fouled out with 5:44 left in the game. When youve got your leading scorer sitting on the bench for maybe seven, eight minutes, that takes a toll, Jefferson said. He also blamed poor passing for the Tigers turnovers. Out of the 13 turnovers we had, they may have stolen the ball maybe four or five times. I am very proud of my guys, he added. Although we did not shoot very well, I am proud of the hustle. Prior to the tournament, the Tigers closed the regular season with a 53-47 loss to Columbia County on Feb. 1 in Lake Butler. Edwards and Mosher each scored 11 points, while Princeton Alexander had nine points and nine rebounds. Dukes had seven points, while Parker Hodgson and Daryl Watkins had four and three points, respectively. Dairon Alexander had two points and five assists.

State: Shut Hampton down Resignations follow audits release BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The results of a state audit sounded as bad to lawmakers in Tallahassee as they did to the towns residents, and now Hamptonor at least its governmentmight soon be a thing of the past. During a Feb. 10 hearing in Tallahassee, members of the Florida Joint Legislative Auditing Committee called for the towns abolishment after hearing about the shoddy recordkeeping, loose purse strings, nepotism, lack of governance and the general abuse of the publics trust. Abolishment means the town would be dissolved. But lawmakersincluding Sen. Rob Bradley who represents Bradford Countyalso want a criminal grand jury to investigate. Among the audits 31 findings were alleged instances of violating state and federal laws as well as the towns own charter. State funding has also been suspended. Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith testified at the hearing and blasted the city, at one point accusing its officials of raping the public, according to one story. Myrtice McCullough, the council member acting as mayor since Mayor Barry Moores widely publicized drug arrest last November, testified as well, saying the city council only found out about the alleged wrongdoings because of the audit. The audit was set in motion by a request from Rep. Charles Van Zant, who informed the auditing committee of a number of complaints brought to him by members of the public. Citizens filed into city hall again Tuesday night to hear the latest developments, and after a brief summary of the Tallahassee hearing, McCullough announced the resignations of John Hodges, the towns elected marshal, and Christina Mobley, who was hired by the city council to replace Jane Hall as clerk. Also gone is Adam Hall, who was overseeing the water department. There was little surprise and no regret expressed, except in the case of Mobley, who had been doing a great job, according to the council. There were a lot of questions and not many answers about what comes next. Sheriff Smith mediated much of the meeting, trying to ease concerns where he could. Many of the questions centered around the safety and maintenance of the water utility, and how billing is going to be handled. Smith said this was one of the main concerns at the hearing, and he said the next day or two would hopefully bring some plan from the state on how to move forward. The water utility and its lost water, unbilled customers, mishandled receipts, etc., were a large part of the audit. Currently theres no one to read meters, send bills or collect checksbut theres also no one to cut off customers for nonpayment. McCullough said the city does contract with someone who performs regular water quality tests. But citizens like Mike Armes were worried that water customers like him would wind up getting Funding for raises drops with student count T eachers, district divided over method, not money BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Both sides have yet to come together in the debate over teacher and employee salaries, and while they are close, they are still very divided. The teams for the school district as well as the employees union, the Bradford Education Association, now agree on the amount of money the district has to spend on raises, although the state allocation has dropped to just $507,000 because of declining enrollment. Where they differ is in how that money will be distributed. Under BEAs latest proposal, teachers would get $1,400 more and education support staff would get 55 cents more an hour added to the current salary schedules, retroactive to July 1, 2013. The district is also proposing $1,400 for teachers ($1,300 for first-year teachers at step zero) and 55 cents an hour for ESPs, but the district wants them to accept that as part of their step raise. The union says no. Members are willing to stay at their current step for the time being and discuss step raises when the district is able to bring that money to the table. The district, however, doesnt want to be stuck with any IOUs. See MONEY, 4A School allocations raise questions BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A preliminary look at allocations for next school year is showing fewer teachers in Bradford County Schools as a result of declining enrollment. At least one school board member had questions about the priorities the allocation list revealed. Stacey Creighton was uncomfortable with the amount of positions and money cut from instruction versus support positions and administration. Im just troubled by the fact that it looks like the majority of our cuts are at the classroom level, Creighton said. Creighton wanted assurance that the resources were being used as efficiently as possible, and with student benefit in mind. She suggested giving reading coaches who provide professional development to teacherspart-time teaching loads, for example, so they use their training to help the students who need it the most. Superintendent Chad Farnsworth said the coaches are teaching, but they are not tied to one group of students, so they can move from class to class and campus to campus. Doing so would limit their impact, he said. Creighton also questioned spending money on public relations. The board hired a community relations coordinator, Brian Graham, at Farnsworths recommendation. I dont see where we can afford a full-time public relations coordinator at this time, said Creighton. She said she knows Graham is doing a good job, and she has wanted to see improved communication, but she asked if that isnt something that can be done one day a week by an OPS employee or by existing staff. Farnsworth disagreed, saying the position was about letting the public know that the school district has the best services available to educate children and reverse the 10-year decline in enrollment.

Barbecue restaurant opening next week BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Tom Perryman, owner of Toms High on the Hog Real Pit Barbecue near Santa Fe Lake, said his facility passed a state restaurant inspection on Feb. 11, which clears the way for the eatery to open on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 10 a.m. Perryman said the property, located at the corner of S.R. 100 and C.R. 21B, will feature a driving lane and parking area for fishing boat trailers and Texas rail fencing, which will promote one of his signature dishes, Texas-style brisket. The back of the property also has an area closed off by the rail fencing. Perryman said the barrier protects the buildings drain field. Perryman added that he still has one regulatory hurdle to overcome: obtaining a beer and liquor license. He said, however, that since he already has a liquor license for his familys catering business, he did not anticipate a problem obtaining a license for the restaurant. Workers started clearing the land for the building a little over a year ago. At that time Perryman intended to call his restaurant Toms Mossy Oak Barbecue. However, after he received a cease and desist letter from the well-known Mossy Oak apparel company, which claimed Perryman was infringing on the Mossy Oak trademark, Perryman changed the name to Toms High on the Hog Real Pit Barbeque, based on the recommendation of a relative. Perryman said an attorney later advised him he was not infringing on the Mossy Oak trademark. However, by that time, he had already obtained marketing material with the new name, and did not want to replace the materials. Perryman said he intends to use the remaining days of the preopening period to train the restaurants staff. Tom and Cathy Perryman started the familys catering enterprise, Country Caterers, in the 1970s. The company has staked out a niche in large-scale emergency food service with a capacity of serving 15,000 people a day. Country Caterers also provides life support and base camp services to its clients. In 2012, the Jacksonville Business Journal ranked Country Caterers as the eighth largest woman-owned business in the Jacksonville area, based on annual revenue.

4A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 The Chur ch of Christ in Lawtey 904-782-3771 Curtis L. White, Minister G reetings to All of Bradford County in Christian Love. As always we give thanks to the God of Heaven for His condescending mercy and His Amazing Grace. Today this letter comes to you on behalf of Alfred (T.D.) Ross, a lifetime resident of Lawtey whose home caught on fire on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014. The total cost of damage to his home is not known at this time, but if you would like to help this caring, giving and reliable man in his time of need, you may do so by taking your gift to the A special account has been established in his name. Today it was him, but on tomorrow it can be you W e thank you in advance,Minister Curtis L. White For transportation please call W e hope to see you there!!! Curtis L. White, MinisterCall for Help for Alfred (T.D.) Love slapped with a large water bill for months of unbilled service. There was also concern that water rates would rise beyond what many could afford. The failure to set rates that would cover the citys costs was a criticism in the state audit as well as the citys annual financial audits. Some, however, were convinced that funding wasnt the issueit was theft. Freddy Johnson said raising rates would just mean theres more money to steal. In addition to the water revenue, people wanted to know what happened to the revenue from all of the traffic citations written. Not everyone was sold on the idea of dissolving the city, but everyone agreed change is needed. Basically, all you have to do around here if you want to keep the charter is you need to pull your bootstraps up, and lets get to work and get this thing done. If not, let them take it over and be done with it, said Johnson. Joshua Davis said these matters need to be in professional hands, perhaps turned over to the county. Attorney John Maines said the citys responses to the audit were meant to signal the citys willingness to work to resolve the problems, but Johnson reminded everyone of the last meeting, when it was pointed out at that the same responses had been given to audit criticisms for years. Nobodys doing nothing youre talking about doing, he said. Weve got a couple of new council members. They might be willing to get up and start doing something, but Im just saying the other people aint doing it. Lillian Sams wondered how all of this could have been going on for so long without intervention. How could all of these people (be here), and not one of them see something was wrong with the picturethe money, everythingincluding the lawyer? she asked. Jo Williamson said the problems didnt accumulate overnight, and she empathized with council members, saying a lot had been dumped in their laps. I really appreciate what youre trying to do, she said. I feel like were attacking you, and we dont mean to do that, because youve got a lot on your shoulders. The only way were going to solve it is work together. We appreciate your service and what you do for us, Davis said. Its just everybody feels theyve been stolen from. Smith said he told legislators not to paint the citizens of Hampton with the same brush. Most get up every day and do what they are supposed to do, he said. But there was some sentiment that the failure of citizens to be more involved had at least contributed to the state of the city. In the absence of any communication from the state, the council acted on the advice of its attorney and voted to request the state appoint a receiver to oversee the interests and protect the assets of the community. The other option was to continue trying to manage the town with limited resources. It had already been determined, however, that the city was not in a position to hire new employees. The council also turned the keys to city hall over to Councilman Bill Goodge, a deputy sheriff, and it was said that vehicles belonging to the city would be gathered and secured. At the sheriffs suggestion, he and McCullough were going to try to meet with County Manager Brad Carter and County Commissioner Danny Riddick on Wednesday to at least establish some temporary assistance pending state action. Legislators have a brief period to file a local bill to dissolve the city before the next legislative session begins in March.

HAMPTON Continued from 1A The districts lead negotiator, Walter Carr, said Feb. 5 that the superintendent and school board had to come up with a lot of money last year to put everyone back on their correct step, and a year later they dont want to take action that would undo that. Asked in what way the districts proposal differed from what was offered before, Carr said there was only so much money to play with. BEAs acting president, Kellie Clark, said they were playing with the same amount of money, but differently. They say they want to give a step. What have they put on the table? Clark asked. The only money on the table is the allocation from the state specifically earmarked for raises. Thats something the union has accepted in its proposal, but employees dont want to let the district off the hook by accepting that money as part of a step pay increase. As Clark said, you dont get to pay part of your bill, then get it marked paid in full. How do you claim a step if you havent put money on it? Clark asked. Randy Whystell, director of human resources for the district who is also on the school boards negotiating team, said the district worked hard to get employees back on their deserved step. When new people are hired, they shouldnt be told they are three years behind where they should be, he said. According to Carr, it took around $600,000 to put employees back on step, but Clark said that money came out of employees pocketsout of the fund balance that grew while employees went without pay raises. I dont call this staying current when youre using somebody elses money to pay your bill, she said. Carr said that Bradford isnt the only district this year to use the state allocation and only the state allocation in bargaining with employees. Then he released a bombshell. The district also wants employees to agree that if there is no money to pay for this raise in next years budget, then their salaries will automatically revert back to preraise levels. Carr said other districts have put that languageor some version of itin their contracts, too, not that BEAs negotiators cared. They had no intention of agreeing to that clause. BEA lead negotiator George Bowen said the legislature had never guaranteed school funding would increase or even remain constant from year to year, and yet employees have never been asked to agree to give back a raise. Its hard to believe that Superintendent Chad Farnsworth and the current school board want to be the first to ask them to do so, he said. Carr said districts that had already settled their employee contracts for the year are now scrambling around to find additional dollars because of student enrollment reductions. Bradford is not in that position, at least, but Carr said without a clause protecting the district from future funding reductions, the district could bankrupt itself. Funding reductions this year are already eating into dwindling reserves, according to Assistant Superintendent Lisa Prevatt, who showed a chart depicting a decade-long reduction in enrollment that adds up to around 1,000 students. The funding lost with this years decline has forced further dipping into reserve funds, causing the district to fall below its 3 percent cushion. Thats whats making it even more difficult than ever, Prevatt said, pointing to a funding loss of around $400,000 because of the most recent calculation. All areas are being hit by the reduction, but around 80 percent of the districts budget goes to compensation. The superintendent and board want to give everything they can to their employees, but there is no money, and were already below whats required by law now in our fund balance, Prevatt said. Bowen said that speech would be appropriate if the union was still asking for anything more than the $507,000 state allocation for raises, but its not. The district just doesnt like the way its being distributed, he said. Were not talking about whether our proposal busts the budget. Thats not an issue, is it? he asked. Bowen also asked if the only way the district was going to agree to fund the proposed raise beyond this year is if the state awards another allocation specifically earmarked for raises. Theres no doubt about it, Carr said. Bowen said that turns the boards proposal into nothing more than a one-time bonus. The session was further strained by questions about how closely school board members had been consulted about the unions latest offer agreeing with the district on the amount of money available. BEA was told that the superintendent spoke individually with school board members that same day, but some employees were claiming to have spoken with school board members who knew nothing of the offer. Bowen said the offer and language proposed were not acceptable at all. Employees, who once again turned out to watch the negotiations, later expressed that they didnt want to settle on these terms. The school board met with its bargaining team during a private executive session Feb. 10, and the next public bargaining session is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 4 p.m. MONEY Continued from 1A

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. I love camellias. They flower in the fall and winter when nothing much else is blooming, and dont they put on a show! My grandmother, Mrs. A.J. Thomas, planted a Professor Sargent bush near the entry of her home on Washington Street. This variety produces a medium-sized red peony (like a pom-pom) flower. I hope to find one of these plants for my yard and enjoy it in her memory. It was the Gainesville Camellia Society, however, that truly deepened my appreciation for camellias. My father took the family to a show when I was a child. Ill never forget wandering amid all the perfect blossoms with my sister. She and I both favored Pink Perfection, a shell-pink small, formal double. I have two Pink Perfections in my yard at Kingsley Lake, and also a white variety, the name of which I do not know, that looks nearly identical, except for the color. Daddy took us to the show those many years ago at the invitation of Henry Lunsford, a friend of his who was very active in the society. I found his wifes name listed as a subscriber to the societys constitution. Both Mr. and Mrs. Lunsford died some years ago. The Gainesville society still puts on an annual show. This years show took place at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens on Jan. 4 and 5, so I missed it. But Im going to try and make it next year. Maybe Ill see some of my friends from Bradford County there. Here are a few facts about camellias that may be helpful if you are already caring for one or more plants, or hope to obtain one. Camellias prefer fertile, well-drained soils high in organic matter with a pH between 5.0 and 6.5. They do best in partially shaded locations with good air movement. Dense shade may lead to sparse foliage and poor flowering. Too much sun can cause yellowgreen foliage but may yield more flowers. These plants are cold hardy but should be protected from cold winds. Frost will damage tender flowers and buds. Its best to plant camellias from November through February. You want to give them time to get roots established before the heat of summer. One or two applications of fertilizer containing equal amounts of nitrogen and potassium (the first and third numbers on the label) and low phosphorous (the middle number) are ideal. There are lots of products that are specifically labeled for camellias and azaleas, but these should only be used on established, non-containerized plants. Camellias are drought-tolerant but need irrigation during extended dry periods. Apply one inch of water every 10 days to two weeks. Apply the same amount weekly during flowering. These plants need minimal pruning. Necessary grooming and shaping should be done in late winter or very early spring after blooming. Tea scale, which appears as a white, fuzzy material on the back of the leaves, is probably the most common and damaging pest of camellias. Controlling it can be problematic because its very difficult to hit the underside of the leaves with insecticidal spray. Oil sprays can be effective and may be applied during fall, winter and spring when temperatures are between 45 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Add a spreader-sticker product to your spray to increase coverage. Repeat up to three times, seven to 10 days apart if needed. More information about camellias and tea scale is available at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep002 (Camellias at a Glance) and http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ in522 (tea scale). Mary W.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 We have public relations issues. There is a serious distrust in the community, in my opinion, in coming (into office), that we are not providing a quality product, Farnsworth said. If that perception is not challenged, then the district will continue losing students to private schools and surrounding counties, he added. This is just the beginning, Farnsworth said, but the district is going to get those kids back, in part by reaching out through social media, but also directly contacting private school students receiving McKay Scholarship funds to help with their tuitionmoney that would otherwise be supporting the district. Were already getting impact back off those letters and making that direct connection with those students, he said. Parents are bringing their children back, and those are dollars straight back into the district. Getting a handful of students back would be enough to pay for the community relations position, according to the superintendent, but even he doesnt see it as a permanent position. If things have turned around in several years, then the position may no longer be needed, Farnsworth said. Graham was at the Feb. 10 workshop to present his work on the districts forthcoming new website, but he did not engage much in the discussion, even when School Board Member Roman Alvarez turned it toward Grahams recently announced candidacy for the Clay County School Board. Farnsworth said he would make sure the campaigning didnt get in the way of Grahams work for the district. Graham did point out that student numbers are beginning to look up. While still down from the projections at the beginning of the year, the district has picked up 35 students since December, he said. Creighton agreed with what Farnsworth said, and said all of this is why the board agreed to hire Graham, but she repeated that her question was not aimed at Grahams performance but where the board was going to trim now that money is so tight. On the topic of teacher allocations, Assistant Superintendent Lisa Prevatt said a process the state is using to calculate funding in light of the effect of dual enrollment and virtual school on actual school enrollmenta process known as known as compressionhas had consequences on the districts student count as well, and therefore its funding. As a result, they are looking even more closely at class size to find areas where they can make additional adjustments, she said. The high school and middle school are each losing two basic education teaching positions. Starke Elementary is also down 2.5 positions according to the list, although Southside will pick up 1.5. That half-position is being shared with Starke Elementary. Lawtey Elementary is adding a teaching position, although one Tile I teaching position must be replaced by filling a Title I paraprofessional position because of the funding lost there, which was actually related to receiving a higher school grade. No changes are planned for Brooker and Hampton right now, but Prevatt said the smaller schools have to be watched closely because small changes can require shifts. The growth in the building construction program means there is need for a new position at the technical center, but 1.33 positions are being cut from the general education teaching category. There is also no money for the district level curriculum resource teacher position, but Prevatt said the teacher would be offered another post. The district continues to be creative with noninstructional positions, sharing a media specialist position between Starke and Southside. A paraprofessional position could be used to fill in for the retiring media specialist at Lawtey Elementary. Changes arent all based on enrollment. The loss of one of two drivers education teachers at the high school was said to be the result of fewer traffic citations being written in Hampton. While the goal is to take the burden off the general fund, that isnt always possible. Grant funds used to pay technology specialists have run out, so those two positions will be picked up by the district. The positions listed here do not include the vacant positions that were also cut. Prevatt said the good news is that she cant think of a case where someone actually lost his or her job. Employees are reassigned where needed.

School Rising groundwater levels follow wet weather The last three months were wetter than normal, with a district-wide average of 12.1 inches, about 3 inches higher than the long-term average, according to the Suwannee River Water Management District. January rainfall was 1.8 inches above average. The wettest November-January on record was in 1947-1948 with over 17 inches, and the driest was in 1956-1957 with just 1.4 inches. The wet weather caused groundwater levels in the upper Floridan aquifer to rise in January after falling steadily since the almost record-setting wet summer. Forty percent of the districts monitor wells had levels in the top 25 percent of readings, double the number seen in December. Conditions on the Santa Fe River are typical for this time of year, according to the district. Levels on the Suwannee River are higher than usual for early February, but still well below flood levels. Recent rainfall patterns have favored northern Florida over southern Georgia, which has helped keep river levels stable without the rapid fluctuations that occurred in 2013. River residents should remain vigilant over conditions in southern Georgia, since a single large storm can cause problems downstream quickly. February, March and April are the peak flood season in northern Florida. More information on rainfall, river and groundwater conditions is available at www. mysuwanneeriver.com. Lake Area Singers plan farewell performances Tickets are now on sale for the Lake Area Singers Gilbert and Sullivan Favorites.

Starting with a Madrigal Dinner in 1996, the singers have produced eight Gilbert and Sullivan works and 13 Madrigal Dinners, two Broadway reviews, a 1950s show, and a French-themed dinner. The group has been able to make significant donations to local charities such as Lake Area Ministries, Boy and Girl Scouts, Melrose Youth Sports Association, several church outreach programs, and other local charities. Members of the 1996-1997 troupe who will be performing include Margaret Rice, director, Jack Rice, Ted Giesel, Jean Giesel and Laurie Alsobrook and Rick Schultz, all of Melrose; Joan Crisman and Larry Hartley, of Gainesville; and Carol Golden and Marian Paul, of Keystone Heights. Other longtime singers are Josh Whiteneck, Barbara Martin and Jordan, Harrell of Keystone Heights, and Vickie Crane of Alachua.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School wrestler Jarraid Forsyth won the Region 1-1A championship in his weight class and will be joined by two of his teammates at the state finals, which will take place this weekend, Feb. 14-15, at the Lakeland Center. Forsyth, a senior who is undefeated this season, will be making his third straight appearance in the state finals 3 from BHS wrestle second grade, but they returned when she was a sophomore. I met Eugene almost immediately when we moved back, within a few months of moving back, Barbara said, adding, He was so cute. They met each other at a convenience store on U.S. 301 across from Bradford High School. Eugene had been riding in a car with his brother, while Barbara was actually in a vehicle with a cousin of Eugenes. That cousin prompted the meeting between the two. I was talking about (Eugene) and how cute he was, Barbara said. (His cousin) dared me to go over and introduce myself. Eugene said, I was sort of surprised. I had never been approached that way. For their first date, Eugene was able to borrow his brothers car. He and Barbara went to dinner, then to the drive-in theater that was in Starke at that time. It seemed like the drive-in was something you did just about every weekend, or you rode up and down 301, Barbara said. Eugene said, Yeah, that was the main thing to doride up and down 301, with Barbara adding, That was a date. Back then, you didnt do a whole lot. They date for only about a year before they got married. Barbara said she knew immediately that Eugene was the man for her. It was a connection as soon as we met, she said. We were like together non-stop. He would walk out to my house because he didnt have a vehicle. I lived out on 301. Hed walk out there at night and walk back. Every now and then, Eugene would get to borrow a siblings BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer You think of mama or dada as babies first words, but what about I do? OK, those werent really the first words out of the mouths of Barbara and Eugene Johns of Starke, but it does seem as if they were meant to be together as they were born one day apart at Bradford Hospital. This Valentines Day arrives shortly after the couple celebrated their 37th anniversary, which was in December. They met each other at Bradford High School, but were together much earlier than that. Actually, I tell people I picked him out in the nursery, Barbara said. Barbara was born on Dec. 26, while Eugene arrived on Dec. 27, though it wasnt actually a full day that separated their births. Barbara said it was something like eight hours. Regardless, she was born first, and Eugene teases her about being older than him. Its neat when youre 18, Barbara said. Its not so cool when youre 50. As if being born less than a day apart at the same hospital wasnt interesting enough, Barbara and Eugene each have a twin sibling. Barbaras twin is a brother named John, while Eugenes twin is a sister named Betty. Barbara and Eugene joke that maybe everything concerning their births isnt what it seems. If you saw a picture of all of us, Barbara said, referring to her, Eugene and their respective twins, Im the oddball out. My twin looks more like (Eugene) and his sister.

2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 February 19th. Starting Thursday, Feb. 27, and running through Sunday, March 2, the Bradford Sportsmens Farm will run its annual Florida Challenge sporting clays event at its shooting range in Graham. Prize money ranging from $25,000 to $30,000 will be issued to the winners of the event. Approximately 300 shotgunners from across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico will participate. Along with the participants, family members and avid followers will also be staying in our local hotels and camping facilities. It will be one of the larger competition sporting clay events in the United States. The owners of the Sportsmens Farm, Pat and Patsy Welch and Al and Linda Stefanelli, have really worked hard to make it one of the premier sporting clay organizations in the United States. As a matter of fact, it has ranked among the top 10 in the United States for the last three years in throwing National Sporting Clay Association competition targets. If you are shy about pitting your shooting skills against some of the best competition shooters, there will be a lot of vendors and displays available at the event. Some really beautiful shotguns will be displayed and sold. A gunsmith will also be available if you have any necessary firearm modifications. Food vendors will also be available. Not all local shotgunners are shy about participating in large competitions. Dwayne Hardee, Ashley Moore, Gary Wise, Chad Welch, Claude Hardee and Edwin Johns can all shoot well in the big competitions, according to Pat Welch.Welch did not mention himself, but he has been known to win a few competitions. With its sporting clay competitions, the Sportsmens Farm backs numerous charitable organizations that include the Will Courtney Foundation, the Starke Rotary Club, the Starke Kiwanis Club, the Rock Volleyball Program, Wolfsons Children Hospital and the 4-H Club of America. The facility also provides classes for basic pistol shooting and for concealed carry. Additionally, on a weekday basis, the facility is available to members for shooting practice. The Bradford Sportsmens Farm is located off of Highway 18 in Graham, approximately 3 miles east of the 301-18 intersection. In Graham, you will turn right at the designated sign and continue until you reach the facility. Outdoors outlook So we continue to march toward spring with precipitation that has been better than the average over the past decade. Should we get another summer like last year, we could see the Keystone lakes look better than they have for quite a few years. Already, fishermen are talking about how Orange Lake looks. Apparently, a boat can already go from Lochloosa to Orange by way of Cross Creek, and fishermen are in hopes that Orange Lake will return to its once legendary status as the bass capital of North Florida. Within the next month, buck deer will begin to shed their antlers. Hunting for shed antlers is a great family activity and allows avid hunters to evaluate their property for next years prospects. Some people actually build shed traps to help add to their collection of deer antlers. A few posts and some field fence are all that are needed. The post can be set in a Z or semicircle formation and covered with field fence. Once the structure is set, corn is distributed at the bottom of the fence. As the bucks subsequently bend forward for the corn, their antlers will likely entangle with the fence wire. Even a loose entanglement Fins, Fur & Tails Pat Welch displays one of his sporting clays trophies. Joey Tyson is proof that Randy Harris can put you Steinhatchee. will hasten the shed at this time of the year. The local fishing reports on the crappie bite indicate that it is on one day and off the next. Consistent reports of the crappie spawn can be found only in lakes from Gainesville southward. Newnans and Lochloosa have produced the better crappie catches in our local area. Crescent Lake, which is south of Palatka, has also been consistently productive. The only indication of the bass spawn seems to come from the consistent 72-degree spring runs that dump into Lake George and the St. Johns east of Ocala. Notwithstanding that report, Len Andrews is now at Kingsley Lake. Len comes from Virginia each year to sight fish the bedding females on Kingsley Lake. With the exception of Randy Harris reports, the inshore west coast reports are also inconsistent. Harris apparently has been landing quite a few overslot-sized reds and nice trout as well around Steinhatchee, and the accompanying photo of Joey Tyson confirms it. 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.

underneath the second floor windows and vertical mullions, and another under the windows in the first floor. Santa Fe College wanted to expand the building at the back, and install an elevator to make the second floor accessible to all. Drivas had the bricks at the back carefully removed, and reused them to restore the Call Street faade. Along the sides and at the back of the building he would use new brick when necessary, matching the originals as closely as possible. He restored the entire building as closely to the exact original as he could; including the Chicagostyle windows in the faade and the decorative, corbelled brickwork on the buildings parapet. For the amount of money spent to restore that building, you could have torn it down and built another one, he said. but in such cases, you arent restoring a building. You are preserving history. Starke businessman and philanthropist Guy Andrews financed the reconstruction for the college. The interior of the building was gutted. Unfortunately, a collection of military insignia and World War II-era murals painted on interior walls could not be preserved. Drivas and others took before and after photos during demolition and reconstruction. Today, Santa Fe College uses the building for classes; a variety of college and community events are held in its first-floor auditorium. On the second floor is the Eugene L. Matthews Bradford County Museum, which collects and stores the countys history. Drivas has definite opinions about local architecture. Much of Starke architecture is Cracker vernacular, he said. This is not a term of insult. It is a commonly used Florida architectural term to suggest that Starkes earliest buildings werent designed by architects, but were constructed according to plans drawn up by owners and building contractors. In some cases along Call Street, the 1800s-era buildings may have been constructed by the same contractor, using a similar design from one building to the next. Many of the bricks in Starkes historic Call Street district may have come from Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 3B M 263 N.

As a young man he attended the Athens Polytechnic Academy, normally an unusually fine place to study the foundations of Western architecture. The period during which Drivas studied, however, was problematic. A military junta had overthrown the democratically elected Greek Parliament in 1967. It was the Cold War era, and the American CIA may have been involved. A leftish government administrator was assassinated; the government tried to call it a drunk-driving incident. (Reference the 1969 Academy Award winning film Z.) Greeks began to revolt against what was in reality a military dictatorship. Drivas left Greece to study architecture at the University of Florida in Gainesville in 1968. Only a few years after he left, a tank would crash through the gates of the Polytechnic, confronting student demonstrators Blood was shed; lives were lost. Safely in Gainesville, Drivas finished his bachelors degree in 1972 and his masters the following year. He married Bradford Countys Lavon Collins in 1976, and worked for a while in private-sector architectural companies in Tampa. Over the following almost 40 years, Drivas designed and built buildings all over Central and North Florida. Around 1978, he left South Florida to become college architect for what was then called Florida Community College at Jacksonville. At the same time, he and Lavon moved back to Bradford County, and he began the daily commute. Working from his home office, in 1982, for example, he was hired to remodel Jacksonvilles old Engineers Building, a former Cadillac showroom at the corner of State State and Main streets. In 1986, Drivas was appointed school architect for the Duval County Board of Education, providing designs, schematic drawings and site plans for such schools as Mandarin High and Oceanway and North Shore middle schools. By now, Drivas was taking on $25 and $30 million projects. From 1986 to 2002, he was director of facilities, planning and university architect at the University of North Florida. During that period, Drivas was also given contracts by the Bradford School Board and served as its managing architect from 1986 until 1992. He designed a new library for Architect Drivas helped build Starkes cityscape Bradford High School, renovated the auditorium and added a music suite. He put the entrance to the school at what had been the side of the campus, to that parking and the entrance were in the same area. At Lawtey Community School, he said, he put the library at the center of the school where it belonged, and renovated the school cafeteria. He added two additions to Bradford middle school: a computer lab and the family center. He added kindergarten additions at Starke and Southside elementary schools. But Drivas is important to Starkes off-campus architectural landscape as well. He designed the new public library and had input into the design and construction of schools and churches around the county, including projects that never got built when clients ran out of money. Two of Drivas most important jobs were not designing new buildings for Starke or the county; it was saving and preserving existing buildings that play roles in Bradfords history. One of those is called the Rosenberg or the JonesRosenberg Building. The other is the Call Street building that housed the old Mitchells Drug store and, in the 1940s, the post office. It now houses Prevatts Restaurant and various offices upstairs. The Jones-Rosenberg Building rests at the corner of Thompson and Call streets, next to the railroad tracks. Its connection to Starke pioneer Dewitt C. Jones is unclear, and perhaps misguided. Former Jones-Gallagher Funeral Home director Steve Futch said he has no information to indicate that Jones built or ever owned the building, though he couldnt refute that possibility. Futch said he knew Jones owned a one-story brick building right next door to the Rosenberg Building and used that building as a hardware store. Fire insurance maps at UFs Smathers Library show a wooden-frame building until at least 1885. By the next 1901 map, the building was brick. In the 1940s and the World War II era, the building was the keystone of Sam Rosenbergs variety and second-hand furniture store. The Rosenberg Building allegedly housed a bordello at one time and was most certainly a bar, catering to Camp Blanding soldiers. In 1991, Drivas was hired to do a $600,000 renovation to shore up the building and add 2,000 square feet of floor space. The effort would also save a building in Starkes business districta district listed in the U.S. National Registry of Historic Places. When Drivas first entered the abandoned Rosenberg Building, the wooden floor was largely gone. Digging not very deeply with the toe of his shoe, he discovered that the interior six-, fourand two-brick pilasters and the exterior walls in the twostory brick building rested only on North Florida sand and soil. The worst problem, though, was the fact that over the years, the building had settled, brought on by its proximity to the railroad. Drivas could almost see the building wobble and shake every time a train went by, as they did many times a day less than 100 feet away. He began by shoring up the foundation. He pumped an epoxy cement under the pilasters and the rest of the building; when the bonding gel mixed with Florida sand, it formed a kind of cement. In the buildings faade, he inserted a steel plate The Rotary Club of Starkes seventh annual Beast Feast will be held Saturday, March 22, at 6 p.m. at the Bradford Sportsmens Farm in Graham.

Helping her celebrate were her son and daughter-in-law, Bill and Claudia Parks of Blairsville, Ga. Parks celebrates 108th birthday Louie Belle Parks www.StarkeJournal.com car, but that usually involved him washing it to earn that privilege. Otherwise, he made that walk from Starke to Barbaras house, which was on the other side of where Ceremonial Fireworks is. That was a good walk, Eugene said, laughing. The couple got married in 1976. They still had no car, though Eugene was able to borrow his brothers car that day. There was no trip afterward, though. Our honeymoon consisted of the Pizza Hut, Eugene said, with Barbara adding, Our matron of honor and best man went with us. They rented an apartment above a house in Starke. Eugene was within walking distance of his job with the city of Starke, but he actually got picked up by his co-workers at 3:30 a.m. He rode on the back of a garbage truck. I lasted probably six months to a year at that job, he said. Actually, it wasnt a bad job. All I did was stand on the back of the truck and hook the cable to the back of the Dumpster. Thats all I did. That was my main job. However, at that point in his life, it wasnt necessarily a job he wanted. It was the thought of being 17 and on the back of a garbage truck, Eugene said. Eugene said he probably made $79-$89 per week. It was tough, especially since Barbara had yet to finish high school and was expecting their first child. At first, it was hard for them to make their money last until Eugene got paid again, but Eugene said it didnt take long for them to adjust their spending habits. After a few months of that, you learn to save, he said. If you dont earn much, you try to stretch it out. We did pretty good. Barbara said, I think the first few years were so much trial and error, but she added that being young and having those early struggles helped them in the long run. I think getting married so early made us a little more independent and a lot more practical in life, she said. Aside from learning how to live within their means, the young couple was faced with their first child, Brian, being born with health issues. He was born without a soft spot on his head. He had to go in at 3 months and have five bones removed from the top of his head, Barbara said. We were only married at that time four or five months. That was probably the toughest time in our whole lives, our first year of marriage. No matter what trials life has thrown at them, Barbara and Eugene have made it work. They successfully raised three childrenBrian, Lisa and Justinand have five grandchildren they love spending time with. They wouldnt be here if we hadnt met and gotten together, Barbara said. With a mischievous gleam in his eye, Eugene asked Barbara, You sure? Im sure, she replied. Eugene said if he hadnt have met Barbara, hed probably be living in a little trailer out in the woods. I dont know if I could take care of myself, he said. Id be in trouble if I had to. Barbara was quick to say, No, you wouldnt. In fact, she talked of how helpful Eugene has been throughout their marriage especially when Barbara went to college while the couples three children were still at home. Hes washing dishes, cooking supper and taking care of the children, Barbara said, adding, I couldnt have done it without him. Barbara said Eugene has continued to be helpful around the house, though he downplays that, saying, Ive learned pretty good how to load the dishwasher and then unload it. Barbara said the only thing Eugene doesnt do is laundry. He said that was his next mission, to learn how to do that. After a few seconds of thought, though, Eugene said, I might skip that one. I might bleach the wrong things. Of course, if Eugene did make such a mistake, history JOHNS Continued from 1B indicates there would be no ensuing argument. Thats one thing Barbara and Eugene have avoided. Weve been together a long time, and I cant say weve really had a fight, Barbara said. We talk it out and show respect. Eugene cant help but inject a little humor into the conversation, saying, She tells me what to do, and I do it. Thats not true, Barbara said, laughing. Though theyve been married 37 years, some things never change. Barbara tells Eugene every morning she loves him, while Eugene kisses her goodbye every time he leaves the house, no matter how short his trip may be. Still, Eugenes not what you would describe as mushy, Barbara said, but thats OK. I like him the way he is, she said, readily admitting, Im probably not a romantic, either. What best describes them is practical, Barbara said. Thats why Valentines Day isnt necessarily a big dealit comes shortly after Christmas, their anniversary and both of their birthdays. The day is not forgotten, though. He always makes sure I have something, Barbara said. He knows I like plants, so hell bring home a plant. I always get a card. Eugene will sometimes give Barbara candy or a cute, Valentines-related item, such as a plush animal that says, I love you. I try to change it up, Eugene said. I try to remember what I got (the previous) year, if I can. If I cant, its the luck of the draw. On Valentines Day, Barbara will prepare Eugene his favorite meal. He likes beans and rice, fried chicken and biscuits, Barbara said. More important than any gifts is the fact they are together. My thing is hes always with me on Valentines Day, Barbara said. We eat a good meal. We just enjoy each others company. Theyve been in each others company as husband and wife for 37 years, though Eugene said, It doesnt feel like weve been married that long. It really doesnt. Time flies pretty fast. Its gone fast, Barbara agreed. Ill tell you what, I wouldnt change it for anything. My life has been wonderful, being married to him and raising our kids together. Perhaps it would have been futile for Barbara to attempt to change things, even if she wanted to. She and Eugene may very well have met and had the same outcome if they werent born a day apart at the old Bradford Hospital, but then again, that certainly could have been viewed as an indicator of what was to come. It definitely was meant to be, Barbara said. I couldnt imagine being with anybody else. Eugene and Barbara Johns are pictured on a vacation to the mountains in 1984. Traveling more is like to do in retirement. Just get in the car and just travel the United States, Eugene said. We

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Union County High School seniors Daquin Buddy Edwards and Phillip Lillie were determined to be the best they could be on the football field, and their efforts have been rewarded as they signed letters of intent on National Signing Day (Feb. 5). Edwards, who will be going to Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., said he was confident at a young age that he would get this opportunity. When I set my mind to something, I do it, he said. I had my mind, passion and heart set on this day. Still, that didnt make the day any less emotional. Im just really, really excited, Edwards said. Its a blessing. I couldnt do it without people pushing me and the community pushing me. Im just so thankful to have this day. Lillie, who will be going to Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory, N.C., recalls his first year at Union County High School after moving to the area. He was a sophomore and probably the smallest player on the team, he said. The coachesI dont think they had any faith in me at all, Lillie said. I took my 10 th -grade year, and I used it as motivation to be better than the others. I just stayed in the weight room days and days, and stayed on the receiver. He has soft hands and catches everything thrown his way, Reynolds said, adding that Dinkins runs the best routes of any receiver hes been around, whether it be in high school or college. Hes just a tremendous player, Reynolds said. I cant say enough how good he is. Dinkins said hes ready to do whatever he needs to do to keep getting better, whether its working on his speed, his technique coming off the line of scrimmage or improving his route running. Im going to do it all, he said. Reynolds said, The world is his oyster. He can make some great things happen. He can go as far as hes willing to work. So far, hes been willing to work very hard. Dinkins said he cant imagine what it will feel like to step onto the field for the first time as a UAB player, but hes looking forward to it. Im just ready to play college football, he said he needs is an opportunity, and he will fly. He will definitely succeed. Hes an exceptional athlete. On top of that, hes a high-quality kid. Dinkins, who caught 37 passes for 915 yards and nine touchdowns, gave his verbal commitment to UAB last June. He said he enjoyed meeting offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Richard Owens, who really seems to care about his players. Plus, Dinkins enjoyed his visit to the campus. Theyve got a nice campus, nice students, Dinkins said. I just fell in love with everything over there. Reynolds said Dinkins is the total package when it comes to BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School senior Kenny Dinkins admitted he wasnt sure if his dream of playing football beyond high school would come true, but he did his part, working hard to try to accomplish just that. The work paid off as Dinkins signed a letter of intent to play at the University of Alabama at Birmingham on National Signing Day (Feb. 5). Dinkins, a wide receiver, said, Its very exciting because not a lot of people get this opportunity to go to the next level. BHS head coach Steve Reynolds said Dinkins has put forth the effort necessary to get to that level. Kennys work ethic is second to none, Reynolds said.

Its real awesome to know youve got a destination. Edwards said he was also looking at Lenoir-Rhyne, the University of South Florida and Southeastern University. At Liberty, though, he experienced a friendly campus, with strangers going out of their way to talk to him and making him feel like family. Its a school that offers football, but it also emphasizes faith. That made it a good fit. They play football, and they walk in faith, Edwards said.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Six weightlifters representing Bradford and Union County high schools competed at the state finals in Kissimmee this past weekend, but none placed high enough in their respective weight classes to earn medals. The top six lifters in each class earned medals. The areas highest finisher was Unions Jessica Brown, who placed ninth in the 154 class with a 310-pound total (165 bench press, 145 clean and jerk). Brown was competing in a tough class that featured Gainesvilles Jessica Kinsler, who won her third straight championship with a 440 total. In all, five from Union competed. Courtney Personette and Kristen Cook each placed BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School led by as many as 11 points and had a seven-point lead at the half, but couldnt hang on to extend its season, losing 60-56 to top seed Fort White in the semifinals of the District 5-4A boys basketball tournament on Feb. 7 in Starke. Too many quick shots, Bradford head coach Adrian Chandler said of the second half. We had possession control of the ball, but then it was one pass and one shot. The fourth-seeded Tornadoes (8-16) had a 13-2 run to open the second quarter, sparked by Caleb Jones and Alex Mejias. Mejias scored on a drive to the basket, while Jones made two free throws, followed by a layup on an assist from Shawn Aaron. Mejias then made a 3-pointer to put Bradford up 25-18. Keaaris Ardley scored four consecutive points off of a layup following a turnover and two free throws to put the Tornadoes up by 11. Bradford lost its lead in the third quarter, but Jones got it back with a 3-pointer to open the fourth quarter. Bradfords Kenny Dinkins later made two free throws to tie the score at 49all, but Fort White took the lead for good on a 3-pointer by Qurin Porter. In the final 2:30, the Tornadoes went 1-of-4 from the field and committed three turnovers. Dinkins was intentionally fouled after a steal with 35 seconds left. He made both free throws to pull the Bradford to within three, but the Tornadoes could not get a good look at the basket to possibly tie the game. Jones, who made a 3-pointer before the final buzzer, scored 21 points for the second straight game to lead Bradford, while Ardley and Mejias each scored 13 points. Dinkins added seven, while Aaron had two. Fort White (25-2) defeated Santa Fe the following night to win the District 5 championship. Visit StarkeJournal.com to view photos from this game. (Membership required.) Tornadoes reached semis with 3-point win Bradford reached the Fort White half, defeats BHS 60-56 semifinals of the District 5 tournament by defeating Interlachen 47-44 in a Feb. 4 quarterfinal game. Jones led the team with 21 points, while Ardley and Tyler Wainwright each had six. Dinkins and Elijah Higginbotham each added five points, while Aaron and Don Jeffers each had two. Prior to the tournament, the Tornadoes suffered losses to Eastside (47-36), Santa Fe (5347), Bishop Kenny (71-33) and Palatka (58-40). Dinkins and Ardley led Bradford in the Eastside game with 12 and eight points, respectively, while Jones and Wainwright each had six. Aaron and Benjamin Nichols each scored two points. Against Santa Fe, Aaron and Ardley each had 11 points, while Mejias had 10. Wainwright and Jones scored eight and five points, respectively, while Drian Jenkins scored two. Jones and Mejias scored 13 and 10 points, respectively, against Bishop Kenny. Aaron had four points, while Ardley and Wainwright each had three.

Nichols and Jones had four and three points, respectively, while Wainwright had two. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Williston High School ended Union Countys basketball season Feb. 7 with a 47-40 win over the Tigers in a District 7-1A semifinal game in Lake Butler. Williston coach Steve Faulkner described the fouland turnoverfilled contest as ugly basketball. It was ugly, he said. Good thing we built a 12-point lead. I felt like we just kind of held on. They made a great run on us in the second half, made a bunch of 3s. I wish we would have made a few more free throws. We just gutted that one out. The Red Devils started the game with a 5-0 run, but Union County fought back, taking an 8-7 lead midway through the first quarter when Geordyn Green sank two free throws after being fouled on a fast break. Williston opened up a threepoint lead by the end of the first quarter and pushed its advantage to 31-20 at the half. Throughout most of the game, the Red Devils used a full-court press. The Tigers (6-18) routinely broke the press, only to later turn the ball over under their own basket. Union County coach Rufus Jefferson said his team could not settle into its half-court game. I tried to get the guys to settle down, he said. It was more like we were out there running track than playing basketball. Jefferson added that a lack of movement on offense contributed to the teams 13 turnovers. We were throwing the basketball around a lot more than we were moving our feet, he said. Faulkner said the press offset his own teams shortcomings. We kept turning it over in the second half, but our press had them turning it over right back, he said. The Red Devils extended See UCHS, 12B 15 th in the 119 and 199 classes, respectively. Kaylee Findley was 16 th in the unlimited class, while Kayla Geraghty was 20 th in the 169 class.

after going 4-0 in the 160-pound class at the Region 1 meet. He was there to compete, Bradford coach Chris Adams said. He wasnt going to let anybody take it from him. Forsyth advanced past the first round of the tournament by forfeit before pinning Paxons Anthony Dukes in 2:54. He then defeated Suwannees Shawn Brown 10-7 before defeating West Nassaus Michael Dudzinski 9-5 in the finals. Adams said the match against Brown was Forsyths toughest of the season. Brown and Forsyth were ranked number one and two in the state, respectively, heading into the meet. It proved to him mentally that hes a champion at heart, Adams said, adding that he firmly believes Forsyth will win his class state championship. Also qualifying for state are Bradford sophomores J.T. Griffis, who was third in the 113 class, and Shayne KahakuaLodivero, who was fourth in the 106 class. Griffis, who was one win from qualify for state last year, went 3-1 after a first-round bye. He recorded a 19-10 major decision over Bays Chance Layfield before getting pinned in 3:56 by Wakullas Larry Smith, who would go on to win the championship. Griffis bounced back, pinning Yulees John Parker in 2:22 before facing Layfield again and recording a 13-0 major decision. Kahakua-Lodivero, who went 3-2, started out with a 20-5 technical fall over Bays Gabriel Meyer and a 1:10 pin of Suwannees Michael Santangelo. Waltons William Pickren pinned Kahakua-Lodivero in 2:39, but Kahakua-Lodivero bounced back in a big way, pinning Bozemans D.J. Hanson in just 41 seconds before an 11-3 loss to Florida Highs Max Metcalf. Adams said Griffis and Kahakua-Lodivero both look up to Forsyth, but are now creating their own legacies as BHS wrestlers. Theyve both come into their own at the right time, Adams said. Brandon Funderburk and Blake Addison also competed for Bradford at the Region 1 meet. Funderburk went 1-2 in the 120 class, while Addison went 0-2 in the 132 class. Funderburks win came by pinning Suwannees Brandon Task in 33 seconds. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 WRESTLE Continued from 1B valentine ads Edgewater Brick Yard, located at the time on the outskirts of Starke. Drivas is not fond of subsequent attempts to cover the buildings, whether in stucco, as was done to the Dover Building in the 1940s, or later with what Drivas called cheap, fake materials, in evidence on some Call Street buildings. He would have encouraged owners to restore buildings to their original look, with new primary materials. Hes also not thrilled with addons such as later extensions to the current courthouse (which is not his design) when the original building needed extra space. (Drive by and see the contrast between the light and airy original center building and its two thick, bulky arms.) It was a beautiful building set back from the road, an authoritative building on a hill. Now its justeh, he said. Drivas retired in 2002, but continues to design public buildings out of his Starke office. He points with some amount of pride to the fact that he has designed buildings for all education levels: the K-12, community college and university systems. He has significant works in at least five North Florida counties, stretching from Duval to Alachua to Putnam. So what? You get 10 million in contracts here; over 100 million in that county over there; 50 million over there. After a while, you begin to lose track, he added. He wont even try to count the number of residential homes hes put together, including his own. He pointed out that the buildings and the design are what last and live far longer than the memories of the money paid to build them. He points out that Starke has some nice residential and commercial architecture and hopes it will be thoughtfully preserved over the years, with cost being only one of several decisions that may need to be made. And he hopes all of Starkes better Call Street historical buildings wont again be thoughtlessly covered over with stuccoreal or fake. DRIVAS Continued from 3B

Adkins hinted at a bit of nervousness, saying she wasnt sure if she was ready to take that next step after high school, but at the same time, shes also looking forward to it. She described the opportunity as amazing. Im excited to go down there and start a new chapter in my life, she said. It fulfills a lifelong dream Adkins has had ever since she began playing T-ball. I always knew I wanted to play collegiate softball, she said. Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said its a good opportunity for Adkins. He said Indian River has a solid reputation statewide and nationally for its program, which is good at moving players on into four-year schools after two years. Plus, Davis said the school and Adkins should mesh well. Its really a good fit because theyre known as a blue-collar, hard-working team, Davis said. Thats exactly what she isan extremely hard worker whos dedicated to softball and her academics. I think its the perfect fit for her. Adkins said she had some offers from four-year colleges, but most were up north. She said she didnt want to travel that far from home just yet. I just wanted to stay closer to home, where I could come back and see my family, she said. Im a big family person. Davis believes Adkins already has the mental makeup to transition to the college game. He said Adkins keeps her focus and doesnt let what happens in a game affect her, whether its good or bad. Shes such a stoic, young player as far as her demeanor on the mound, Davis said. She is always positive, whether she gives up a home run or she just struck out three in a row. You cant tell by looking at her face. Shes one who gives her best effort every game mentally and physically. Adkins was a second-team all-state selection last year, going 26-2 with 15 shutouts, 204 strikeouts in 175 innings and an ERA of 1.36. Davis expects another solid year from Adkins before she graduates from BHS. Ive got high expectations for her, Davis said. Shes a great pitcher. She stays in control of games. Were playing a tougher schedule this year, but I know she can handle the teams that were going to play. Shes going to keep us in ball games and give us an opportunity to play. When the time comes to step onto the field for the first time as a player at the next level, Adkins said, Ill probably just be so excited and have to probably calm my nerves down a little. fullback. He also played on the defensive line in high school, but was eager to keep making his mark in the offensive backfield. I love running the ball, Edwards said. I love blocking. I love showing what Im capable of. I just feel like if I get the chance to get the ball in my hands, I can do something with it. Union head coach Ronny Pruitt said it was fun to watch someone Edwards size-2, 240carry the ball and do so successfully. Edwards averaged 6 yards per carry this past season, gaining 808 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns on 132 carries. Gods blessed him with the physical attributes to be successful at the next level, Pruitt said. Hes taken advantage of it and done what hes needed to do to make his dream come true. Pruitt said Edwards most likely will not get as many carries as he did at UCHS, but had little doubt that Edwards will excel. At the next level, hes going to be a blocker and a pass receiver, Pruitt said. Hell adapt to that very well, carry on and do the same things he did here. Lillie said Brevard College was also showing interest in him, but not to the extent that LenoirRhyne was. When he took his visit to the Lenoir-Rhyne campus, he knew thats where he needed to be. As soon as I went there, I fell in love with the town, Lillie said. Its so much like Union County. Its a small town, Christian-like and everybody knows everybody. Its great. As for where Lillie will play at Lenoir-Rhyne, that may be a little up in the air. Hes played defensive back, wide receiver and running back at UCHS. Last season, he rushed for 221 yards and seven touchdowns, while on defense he made 42 tackles, recovered one fumble and intercepted one pass. Pruitt said he has talked to the cornerback, safety and running back coaches at Lenoir-Rhyne. They all want Lillie at their respective positions. Phillip is a true utility player, Pruitt said. Hes got the physical size to play all three of those positions. Hes one of those I see going in at one position, but possibly coming out in another. (Lenoir-Rhyne) realized that when they recruited him. Lillie said his preference is to play safety, but he can see himself being tried at various positions. Thats OK. Lillie just wants the chance to play. I just love the game of football, he said. Pruitt said theres not as much change from high school to college at the defensive back position as there is at running back, so it just may work out that Lillie winds up playing his preferred position. He likes contact, Pruitt said. Hes a physical guy. Whether it be safety or corner, hes going to come up and make a play. Thats primarily why (Lenoir-Rhyne) got him, because of how physical he is and what he brings to the table. On stepping onto the field for the first time as a Liberty player, Edwards said, Im going to be nervous, but nervous is good for me. If Im nervous, Im ready. Lillies ready, too. Its going to feel good, and its going to be a show, Lillie said.

Keystone Heights High Schools season came to an end Feb. 4 with a 76-37 loss to Santa Fe in the quarterfinals of the District 5-4A boys basketball tournament at Bradford High School. D.J. Mayer and Buck Shobris led the Indians (3-19) with nine and eight points, respectively, while Earl Hall had seven points. Micah Brown and Brandon Nicholas each scored four points, while Austin Bass and Travis Wheeler each had three points. Juwan Crum added two points. Santa Fe would go on to be the district runner-up to Fort White. Prior to the tournament, Keystone closed the regular season with a 34-28 win over Union County on Jan. 31 in Keystone. The Indians led the Tigers from start to finish and got six points each from three players: Nicholas, Shobris and Wheeler. Kyler Teague had five points, while Hall had three. Bass, Brown, Mayer and Anton Noble each had two points. Brown and Hall finished with five rebounds each, while Brown also had four steals. Nicholas had four assists. Union was led by Kyle Moshers 10 points, while Princeton Alexander added six. Austin Dukes and Parker Hodgson each scored four points, while Larry Collins and Daryl Watkins each scored two. Alexander and Mosher had nine and eight rebounds, respectively, with Alexander also coming up with four steals. their lead to 35-23 with 2:45 left in the third quarter. However, momentum appeared to shift to the Tigers after Willistons Earl Brown was called for a technical for hanging onto the rim after a dunk. Unions Kyle Mosher made one of two free throws after the technical. Austin Dukes followed with a field goal, and Daquin Edwards sank two free throws to close Willistons lead to 37-33 with 6:58 left in the game. From the beginning of the fourth quarter until the 2:26 mark, neither team scored a field goal. Instead, they traded fouls, traveling violations and turnovers. The game, from midway in the third through midway in the fourth, was extremely ugly on both sides, Faulkner said. Mosher broke the drought with a 3-pointer, bringing the Tigers to within three. With 2:30 left in the game, Williston led 39-36. The Red Devils then went on an 8-4 run to close out the game, capitalizing on missed 3-pointers from Union and Tiger fouls, which were made to stop the clock. Green gave the Tigers their final boost, sinking a 3-point shot with 19.8 seconds left. Jefferson said the Tigers shooting percentage of 34 percent was the biggest factor in his teams loss. We picked the wrong night to be off, he said. I think we only shot like 12 for 35. We usually shoot a lot better than that. Jefferson said part of his teams lack of production rested with key players he had to bench because of foul trouble. Leading scorer Mosher spent much of the game on the bench with four fouls, as did Green. Dairon Alexander also had four fouls, and Dukes fouled out with 5:44 left in the game. When youve got your leading scorer sitting on the bench for maybe seven, eight minutes, that takes a toll, Jefferson said. He also blamed poor passing for the Tigers turnovers. Out of the 13 turnovers we had, they may have stolen the ball maybe four or five times. I am very proud of my guys, he added. Although we did not shoot very well, I am proud of the hustle. Prior to the tournament, the Tigers closed the regular season with a 53-47 loss to Columbia County on Feb. 1 in Lake Butler. Edwards and Mosher each scored 11 points, while Princeton Alexander had nine points and nine rebounds. Dukes had seven points, while Parker Hodgson and Daryl Watkins had four and three points, respectively. Dairon Alexander had two points and five assists.
