Deary bringing culinary expertise to extension position BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Samara Deary was introduced this month as the county extension offices newest agent. Deary is replacing Melanie Thomas, who took another job, as the agent in charge of family and consumer science services. Unlike Thomas, who split her time between Bradford and Baker County, Deary is the first full-time family and consumer science agent the county has had in some time. For Dearywhom county commissioners immediately began calling Sama true introduction to Bradford County has been necessary. She grew up in Virginia, but moved to Florida around three years ago when her husbanda Jacksonville native who had retired from the Navy and worked for the post officewas transferred back here. Her knowledge of nutrition is based on her culinary arts education, received at Johnson & Wales University. She was the first in her family to get a bachelors degree, and later a masters degree. Her first education in food, however, was at home. Food was always pivotal in my family, Deary said. Her grandmother had a garden where she grew a variety of vegetables, a grape vine and multiple fruit trees. Growing, preserving and cooking food were a way of life growing up. Her grandmother is still at it, in fact, and when it gets time each year to put up those preserves, the family pitches in. Just being in the kitchen with my mom, watching her cook, and my grandmother, watching her cookand you know older people, when they cook, its not with a recipe; you have to watch them. Thats how you pick it up, she said. She has carried on the tradition with her children. She has a 19-year-old son and two daughters, 12 and 9. Everybody in my house cooks except for the dog, she said, and some of that food comes from their container gardens. Its really important that my kids understand that you dont just go to the store and think things pop up, and McDonalds is not the place that you live at. Everyone in my house can cook something from scratch. In Virginia she taught home economics at all girls school, with topics covering parenting and family relations, finances and nutrition. A chef instructor suggested she use her experience in catering and cuisine to apply for the position. She was surprised to find there was nothing really comparable in many Florida schools. Instead, Deary went to work for Samara Deary BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Shane Bennett is now full time on the job as Lawteys new chief of police, having wrapped things up with his former job for the Department of Corrections. Bennett is from Lawtey. He went to school there until the seventh grade, but his father, Donald Bubba Bennett, was a firefighter at Cecil Field, and the job promotions required the family move. The first moves were international, to the bases at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba and then Sigonella, Sicilly. Each move lasted a couple of years, and then the family returned to the states, living in Volusia County. His mother, Donna, a registered nurse, homeschooled him and his brother during their final years of high school, and his education didnt suffer for it. Bennett was accepted into a private college, Stetson University, on a full academic scholarship. There he studied in classes of around 15 students taught by professors with PhDs, keeping his grades up while majoring in history, with a minor in political science. I missed most of the fun parties, Bennett joked, saying he had to keep his GPA above 3.2. He graduated with a 3.6. After college, Bennett, who had worked for a short time as a correctional officer before college, went back to work for the state as a probation officer, then after three years moved to the Volusia County Sheriffs Office. Bennett knew he wanted to be in law enforcement and he earned his stripes working for an agency with 500 deputies and answering more than 20 calls a night. He said when he got in his car and booted up his computer, there would already be multiple calls needing his attention. He stayed busy to be sure, but it could also be mundane, responding repeatedly to the same types of calls, and stressful, too. People dont call the police because all is well, Bennett said. What made it worth it were those occasions where his presence made a difference, like providing comfort in the middle of the night to someone who was afraid. Every now and then, law enforcement will offer you those moments to do something really rewarding, he said. While his brother, Casey, now lives in Tennessee, Bennett moved back to Lawtey in 2004 with his parents when his father, whose job had continued moving him around the country, retired. With Bennett were his wife, Tammy, and their son, Colton. (They are now divorced, but remain great friends, he said.) Bennett approached Police Chief Butch Jordan for a job, and he went to work for the city part time and also full time for the state in classifications at the Reception and Medical Center. When he went from a full-time position in Volusia County to working part-time in Lawtey, he learned there was a world of difference in policing a small town. For example, he was told instead of seven or eight domestic complaint calls a night, he could expect that many in a years time. It was on just such a call that Jordan taught him how small town police work was donewith a human touch. Being here allows you the time to sit down and try to come up with the right answer versus just throwing Lawtey Police Chief Shane Bennett In the sunshine?Hampton holds emergency meeting and state announces hearingBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor As if Hampton didnt have enough problems, the city council apparently held an emergency meeting Feb. 17 with limited public notice and no notice to the media. According to a telephone call from a citizen who attended the meeting, the purpose was to vote to advertise for someone to fill the vacant position of city clerk. The council reportedly acquiesced to public pressure and agreed to try to find someone to fill the maintenance position as well after it was revealed Adam Hall is apparently still on the job and using a city vehicle. He is the son of former City Clerk Jane Hall and Councilman Charles Hall, who has been absent from recent meetings. The public was told just last week that Adam Hall had resigned, as had Marshal John Hodges and Clerk Christina Mobley. Myrtice McCullough, currently serving as acting mayor, did not return a call seeking comment about the meeting, including why the council felt an unscheduled meeting was in order. The caller said notes about the meeting appeared around town, including on an ice machine at a convenience store. FFA BFFs

A Facebook pagewhich incidentally rips off the logo of Hampton Inn hotel chainwas created urging people to save Hampton, but its founder, Jim Mitzel, a former mayor and councilman, couldnt offer a reason for saving the town other than its long history. When asked how the governments existence benefits the public or if he had a plan to make the corrections called for by the audit, he had no answer, except to say that there must be a way to save the town besides placing a closed sign on city hall. That stands in contrast to what Sen. Rob Bradley told Time magazine when asked about getting support for abolishing Hampton, saying many people dont understand why it exists in the first place. Bradley, whose district covers Bradford County, sits on the Florida Joint Legislative Auditing Committee, which heard the audit results last week, and he will be here for a hearing next week along with Rep. Charles Van Zant of Keystone Heights, whose request got the audit rolling. That hearing on the dissolution of Hampton is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 27, at 6 p.m. at the Bradford County Courthouse. It is, of course, open to the public.Continued from 1A them in jail and letting the courts figure it out, he said. Most people are good people but may be in a bad situation. Bad guys go to jail. We believe that, we do that. But other people, there might be other things on the spectrum you can do for them. Bennett told the story of going to an apartment with Jordan one night in response to a complaint about a couple arguing. Bennett defaulted to his textbook approach of trying to separate the two, but instead, Jordan pulled them both inside and proceeded to give the man a good talking to, telling him he should be ashamed for coming home intoxicated and fighting with his wife. He said, Ill tell you what were going to do. We cant have this going on. You all are waking the neighbors up. Bennett said Jordan went to the bedroom, grabbed a pillow and blanket, and told the husband he was going to spend the night on the couch. I walked out and I went, Really? Back in Volusia, Bennett said they would have taken the husband in on a disorderly charge to ensure they wouldnt be called back the same night. Not necessary here, he said. They respected him. They were glad he showed up, said Bennett. If youre stealing peoples hard-earned property, selling drugs to kids, are somehow a danger to public safety, then he said you will go to jail, no matter who you are or who you know. But if youre in trouble and need help, Bennett wants the Lawtey Police Department to be there for you as long as you are also willing to help yourself. Thats what I learned from Butch. Treat your citizens right. Help them, dont harass them, he said. From the outside, however, the department has a different reputation. It has been bandied far and wide that Lawtey is a speed trap and that its police department takes advantage of the citys position in pursuit of funding from citations. Bennett takes issue with that view of Lawtey. The city has a major highway thorough the center of town passing a school, businesses and busy pedestrian crossing, and the speed limit (which is set by the state) needs to be enforced, he said. Yet of the thousands of cars that pass through the city every day, only a fraction of a percentan average of 15 a dayare ever pulled over and issued a citation. We dont write a single speeding ticket where the person wasnt going at least 10 or 11 mph over. Most are going faster than that, Bennett said. I dont think anybodys being trapped at all. The revenue collectedabout $36 per ticketisnt enough to pay for the department, let alone provide a windfall for the city council, he said. He is looking at other ways to fund the department, including grant writing and seizures from drug interdiction. I dont like that reputation, I dont think its earned, and were going to start doing things to maybe try to get away from that, he said. Traffic enforcement on that major U.S. highway that goes straight through our town is important to us. Were going to keep enforcing it, but its not all we do. Bennett doesnt want officers tied up by U.S. 301, either. They have calls to take around the city, and he is proud of the short response time. Neighborhood presence and business patrol is something the citizens have told him they want, and so they are getting it. In addition to cultivating a good relationship with the public, Bennett said he also has a good relationship with the city council, which wasnt always true with the former chief. I think its important to understand that were a small town with limited resources. Weve got the same problems they have in lots of other places. You got just so much to go around, and Im in a department that competes for those resources, he said. Not always coming first in the fight for those resources isnt personal, he added. There are other needs that sometimes take priority. Were trying to do good work for the right reasons, Bennett said of the citys government. A lot of past issues could be chalked up to poor communication, he said. But he wants to be as transparent as possible. The more you are open, the more you communicate, the less mistrust you have, he said. Bennett said he wanted to follow Chief Jordan to build on his 50-year legacy and move the department into the modern eragetting computers in cars and moving to a computerized records system, expanding funding opportunities, and strengthening the departments community service. Working with him is his captain, Nathan Blom, his second in command with years of experience and commitment to the community, Bennett said. He shares the administrative load. As sergeant of special projectsa new designationMichael Starling will be the department liaison for community events and oversee enforcement waves like Click It or Ticket. Michael Gillick, Shawn Brown and Kelly Brown are the senior patrol officers, which means they have been with the agency, undergone advanced training, have a good record and can serve as mentors for the nine other patrol officers. It sounds like a sizable force for Lawtey, but other than Bennett, all of the officers are part time. That is something that could change as he weighs the pros and cons of a hybrid force of fulland part-timers. If history repeats itself, Bennett should have time to work it out. Jordan broke a record for his years in the position, and Bennett was unchallenged when he stepped up to replace the retiring chief. For now, he said hes fortunate to have the job and hes willing to do it until the people decide hes no longer the man for the job. He wants the public to know that that the department belongs to them, and he said hes open to ideas. One of the benefits of a small community is direct interaction with its leaders, he said. Bennett seems more than settled in his hometown, raising his son, who is also homeschooled, and spending time with his girlfriend and her children. He doesnt have much time to play music anymore, but the academic in him still reads a lot, particularly historical novels and nonfiction, magazines like The Economist and even an occasional New York Times. And he eschews television. He doesnt have one at home. Not that he has an ego about that or anything he does. Bennett said thats where a lot of public officials fail. He said leadership could make people territorial, closed-minded and incapable of owning their mistakes. Ego stands in the way of the kind of cooperation necessary to truly serve the public, he said.Continued from 1A

Hope students learn about college options BY VIRGINIA DENMARK Hope Christian Academy Representatives from seven colleges participated in Hope Christian Academys College and Career Fair Feb. 5. The event was hosted in the school gym and featured booths and information from Trinity Baptist College, University of North Florida, Clearwater Christian College, Johnson University, St. Johns River State College, Pensacola Christian College and Baptist College of Florida. We wanted an event where students could be exposed to many different college options, said instructor Tyler Hildebran, who suggested the event. A lot of students might only consider larger universities, but we wanted them to realize there are more local, affordable and Christian options available to them. The event, coordinated by HCA High School Principal Tori Schenck and Mary McCarthy, offered just that for the students and was met with much enthusiasm. It was exciting to watch the students interact with the college representatives, said Schenck. I was told by the representatives that the students asked wonderful questions and were engaged in conversation, which they did not see often in all of the schools they visit. I was proud of our students for that reason, and I feel that they were given some helpful information and exposed to opportunities that they did not know were out there for them. Hope Christian Academy has 320 students from infants through 12th grade. Twenty of the high school students are already dual enrolled in Santa Fe College. the extension program in Duval County. She was a program assistant for a program known as EFNEPthe Expanded Food Nutrition Education Program. She went into the community and worked with families, teaching them how to prepare budget-friendly meals that were also good for them. I was really fortunate to come across extension, because I really didnt know about extension before, even though I was always in the vicinity of an extension office, she said. When Thomas got her new job in Duval County, the position here opened up, and Bradford Extension Director Tim Wilson said he new very quickly Deary was the right person for the job. Deary said she wants meet the needs of the community and is spending time learning what people would like to see from her. Health educationincluding diabetes and heart healthis a priority. Teaching people with these and similar conditions that they can cook and eat in ways that support health is important, as well as getting them moving with a walking program. Gardening and the benefits of eating fresh produce is also something shed like to teach to kids as well as adults. While she admits she shares a weakness for desserts with most people, she is also adept at preparing vegetables and doing things that are beyond the every day, such as cooking Asian cuisine. She has plans to work with 4-H but also at the senior center and the library. Where the community is at, thats where Deary wants to be. Im really excited about it, she said. Also exciting is the possibility of her parents moving to Florida, so the state is feeling more and more like home all the time.

Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. My favorite Christmas decoration this past year was the huge poinsettia growing in my yard. It was planted many years ago by my mother, who always had these beautiful ornamentals growing in her flowerbeds. I can remember once, when I was a child, a perfect stranger knocked on the door of our home in Hawthorne to ask if he could take pictures of mothers prized poinsettias. My poinsettia reached a height of over eight feet before harsh winds stripped many of the leaves away and the freezes that hit after Christmas finished the job. But I know it will come back again next year. Mothers method of propagating poinsettias was remarkably easy, and its always worked well for me. Once the weather warmed up, shed break all the dead limbs from her plant. Shed cut any remaining living stalks to her desired height, around one or two feet. Then, she would cut the still viable limbs shed removed from the plant into twelve-inch sections, and stick them in the ground. She made the cuts at an angle, so they slid into the ground easily without the need for any digging. Im pretty sure she learned this technique from her mother. In any event, they always sprouted! All they needed was water. Maybe you dont have any giant poinsettias growing in your yard. You might have some bedraggled potted poinsettia plants that you purchased for the Christmas holidays on your porch or stuck in an inconspicuous corner of your yard. That wouldnt be surprising, because poinsettias are the number one flowering plant sold in America during the holiday season. When the danger of frost is past, you can transition your potted poinsettias to your landscape. To do this, cut off the fading bracts, or dying colored leaves, and leave four to six inches of stem on each branch. Begin monthly fertilization and move the potted plant to a partly shaded location in your yard for one to two weeks before you transplant it into the ground. This helps the plant acclimate to its new location. Choose a site that receives full sun during most of the day but make sure it doesnt receive any artificial nighttime light from nearby streetlights or windows. This is very important if you want your plant to flowerand who doesnt? Poinsettias require 14 hours of complete darkness each night during the fall for six to eight weeks prior to flowering. Poinsettias prefer moist, well-drained soils with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Place the plant in the soil at the same depth it was growing in the pot. Gently firm the soil around the plant and water well. Keep it mulched and well watered until established. Continue to fertilize monthly from May to September. Poinsettias, which were introduced by the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett, in 1825, are tropical plants. Consequently, freeze damage is a problem in our area. Plants incorporated into the landscape should be pruned to a height of 12 to 18 inches after the danger of frost is past or to living tissue if they have been damaged by cold. Tall plants may become leggy and unattractive, so its a good idea to prune them regularly during the growing season. This may be done once a month, leaving four leaves on each shoot. Pruning should be discontinued after Sept. 10. Flower buds will begin to develop in October. Delay or disruption of flowering will occur if fall temperatures are too warm or too cold.

This years theme is Ignite and it embraces more than 80 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organizations future. More than half a million members will participate in National FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members have a passion for agriculture. Designated as National FFA Week in 1947, the week of George Washingtons birthday is FFA Week, and runs from Saturday to Saturday. FFA Week gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their school and community learn about FFA and agricultural education. According to instructor Allison Hartley, some of the activities planned in Bradford County included a teacher appreciation breakfast, the Ag Olympic games, a nursing home visit, a livestock judging contest (students will be traveling to Kissimmee) and a dance. More contests, fundraisers and activities are planned for the remainder of the school year. In its second year, the fulltime program at Bradford Middle School has grown to 85 FFA members, Hartley said. The Agriscience Academy is also in its second year, offering high school science credit to students who complete it. Todays FFA members are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. Through agricultural and hands-on learning, they are preparing for more than 300 career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resources industry. National FFA Week is sponsored by Tractor Supply Company as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 579,678 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.Thanks to Bobbie Acevedo, Allison Hartley, Allen Shaw and Jim DeValerio for your contributions to this issue!

medication as his brother, and his condition was monitored over the years. Nothing seemed to change in his condition until one night in 2012 when he had trouble breathing. Ryan said he had eaten shrimp that night and thought he was having some sort of allergic reaction. Finally, at 2 a.m., after trying unsuccessfully to get to sleep, Ryan told his wife, Jennifer, he needed to go to the hospital. That There is something unusual about his backThose were the words of John Reddish after Ryan was born. Despite his concern, the pediatrician assured John and Barbara there was nothing wrong with their son. When Ryan was 6 months old, he developed pneumonia and was admitted to the hospital. After X-rays, the pediatrician had to admit that something was indeed wrong. He had an extreme case of scoliosis, Barbara said. The parents were referred to another physician, who said the only option for Ryan was to have surgery. The diagnosis was that he wouldnt live to see the age of 20 otherwise. Surgery, which included a spinal fusion, was performed when Ryan was 10 months old. That left him in a full-body cast, plus he also had a cast on his left foot, which had some abnormalities. Barbara expected her infant son to express his discomfort at having to be in a body cast for the next six months, but she said he actually had a pleasant disposition throughout. I envisioned nights of not sleeping and probably a lot of discomfort and crying, but he was just delightful, Barbara said. A trip to his orthopedic physician at the age of 14 revealed that Ryans spine had started to curve again. Ryan had to have surgery again to insert Harrington rods along his spine. As you can imagine, this surgery was a lot different for Ryan than the one he had as an infant. He was old enough to be aware of what was going on. That was scary, Ryan said. Following the surgery, Ryan had to wear a brace, which was uncomfortable and, of course, not the thing a teenager wants to have to deal with. Youre in high school, youre trying to impress girls and stuff, and youre walking around like a Ninja Turtle, Ryan said. Not that he complained. Like the infant in a full-body cast that never fussed, the teenaged Ryan seemed to take it all in stride. His mother said thats basically been his approach to life. Always this wonderful attitude, Barbara said. He was never bitter. He was never a child that complained about anything. Though scoliosis was Ryans concern at that point in his life, he and his family were aware of the fact that his heart never moved from the right side of his chest to the left side prior to birth. However, his heart was functioning fine. Barbara said the joke was that Ryan would have to place his left hand over the right side of his chest when pledging allegiance to the flag. In time, though, Ryan faced a bigger concern than what side his heart was on.Not a mistakeBarbara was thinking the doctor must have been confused. Perhaps he was looking at her son Chads records. Ryan was making an annual visit to the cardiologist when he was 22. The cardiologist said Ryan had cardiomyopathythe same disease his brother had been diagnosed with. On the way home, I dont think we hardly said a word to each other, Barbara said. We were just both so stunned by the diagnosis. Cardiomyopathy is a hereditary disease that causes the heart muscle to become enlarged. In Chads case, the disease caused him to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest at the age of 16. Surviving such an incident is approximately 5 percent, but Chad did survive. Now, not only was the Reddish family learning that Ryan had the disease, too, but that Ryans heart was even more enlarged than his brothers. I was just blown away, Ryan said. This whole time I felt so sorry for my brother and what he had gone through. I was terrified for him. Then, all of a sudden, we later learned that Im worse. Ryan was put on the same BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Why? A one-word question that so easily pops into anybodys mind during troubling times. It was a question Ryan Reddish of Starke asked himself as a 22-year-old who had received a diagnosis of having a serious heart condition. Now, 16 years later, Reddish is not asking why. The open-heart surgery he had two years ago and the series of complications he experienced in the hospital in its aftermath has changed his outlook on life, causing him to take stock of whats really important and to rely more upon God. Its been a blessing in disguise, Reddish said. All that has happened was bad, but its made me a better person physically and spiritually. His life has been quite a story, starting with having surgery at 10 months of age and later being diagnosed with the same heart condition his older brother, Chad, has. Barbara and John Reddish have two sons who are alive today and able to experience the joy of their families, but at times, it looked as if that wouldnt be reality. Its just been an unusual journey, Barbara Reddish said. Its rare that a set of parents comes so close to losing two of their children, yet miraculously they get them both back. I never see either of them where I dont have an immediate flashback of what could have been. I have a deep appreciation of what the outcome for both of them was. I am still in awe that theyre still here. That unusual journey in Ryans case began with something unrelated to his heart. said.

Nadler, a 2004 Keystone Heights High School graduate who currently lives in Dallas, participated in Januarys USA Half Marathon Championships in Houston, crossing the finish line in 1:03.55 and earning a spot in the Feb. 13, 2016, U.S. Olympic Team Trials. It feels great, Nadler said. I started back running and set that goal for myself. Olympic trial-qualifying races began in August 2013, but last months USA Half Marathon Championships was Nadlers first attempt in qualifying. He felt confident, though, in his ability to finish with a qualifying time of 1:05. Nadler did more than reach that time, establishing personalrecord 10K and 15K times of 30:06 and 45:04. I felt like I had a great shot of achieving it, but I ran faster than I expected, Nadler said. At KHHS, Nadler participated in both cross country and track and field. As a senior, he was a district runner-up and regional champion in cross country before placing third at the state finals with a personal record of 15:37. In track and field as a KHHS senior, Nadler was the district champion in the 1600m and district runner-up in the 3200m. He went on to finish as the regional runner-up in the 3200m and place fourth at state in the event with a personal-record time of 9:27.09.

before defeating Lemon Bays Ryan Dodge in the third-place match. Bradford had two first-time state qualifiers in junior Shayne Kahakua-Lodivero (106 class) and sophomore J.T. Griffis (113). Most first-time state participants are in awe of the immensity of the event and have what Adams said is called newbie shock. A lot of those wrestlers wind up going 0-2, but Griffis did get a win, which came in the first round. He pinned Somerset Academys Daniel Valledor in 2:13 before losing 21-9 to eventual sixthplace finisher Jacob Denning of Rockledge.

I was hungry again and really wanted to run, Nadler said. The return was in March 2012 at the age of 26. Since then, Nadler has posted many highlights, placing first in various races in 2012 and 2013. In December 2013, Nadler and his wife, Angela, took a twoweek trip to Cuenca, Ecuador, where Nadler trained for the USA Half Marathon Championships. In one of his blogs on his website, www.runwithenoch. com, Nadler wrote, This was my first time going to a new continent, and it opened my eyes to what the world has to offer as long as you are willing to put yourself out there and be adventurous. Now, Nadler has plenty of time to train in preparation for the Olympic trials, which will be held in Los Angeles. It will be a different type of training, though. Nadler was specifically training to run a half marathon for last months qualifying race, but he will have to run a full marathon at the Olympic trials. He said he will probably participate in his first full marathon this fall in a city like Chicago or New York. At the Olympic trials, Nadler said he would have to finish in the top three to qualify for the U.S. marathon team.

Each year, 20-25 Royal School and Orphanage students, ranging in age from 8 to 16, are chosen to spend six months in the United States, traveling to churches and schools, collecting love offerings, raising awareness of the lack of food in their country and encouraging people to sponsor orphans in their country for $9 a month. In June 2013, 21 children at Royal School and Orphanage began practicing eight hours a day for the six months they would be in America. This preparation was much different from that of most touring singers. Royal School and Orphanage childrens purpose was to collect enough love offerings to feed 5,000 children for a year. Uganda is a warand disease-ravaged country, with many children losing their loved ones to war and AIDS. Northside Christian Academy students, parents and staff raised $1,200 for Pennies for Posho in the two weeks leading up to Ugandan Thunders visit. Pennies for Posho helps feed children at Royal School and Orpanage and 13 other orphanages. (Posho is the staple food of Uganda and other countries in Africa.) Ted Moody, who founded Pennies for Posho, said the NCA love offering was the largest the organization had ever received from a school. The opportunity to interact with students from another part of the world had an impact on NCA students and staff. Shane Worten said, I am ready to go work in a Ugandan orphanage. Seeing how little they have, and yet how happy they are, is really life changing. As the children of Ugandan Thunder prepared to leave NCA, everyone present gathered in a circle around the schools gymnasium and sang.

4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thu rsday, Feb. 20, 2014 Editorial/Opinion Bradford County Telegraph Union County Times Lake Region Monitor The state of Florida executed another inmate on Feb. 12, and while it made front-page news in the Gainesville Sun, it hardly made a ripple in the news elsewhere. Certainly, the residents of Union and Bradford counties were unaware of the incident, unless they traveled along S.R. 16 during the time of the execution and saw the people standing in the field across the highway from Florida State Prison. In Florida, the death sentence is performed with clock-like efficiency from experience gained through executing 83 convicted murderers since 1972. Department of Corrections personnel carry out the executions in Florida State Prison, on the banks of New River, in Bradford County. As of today, 399 inmates remain on Death Row, awaiting final disposition of their cases. There are always two groups of people standing on the north side of S.R. 16 when an execution is scheduled, representing the pro and con of capital punishment. The groups remain segregated, and there has never been a problem between them while on state property. Inmate Juan Carlos Chavez, 26, was a South Florida farm worker in September 1995 when 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce failed to return home after getting off the school bus. A diligent and thorough search of the community yielded no clues to his disappearance and the case remained in limbo for lack of information. The Ryce family was devastated as they lived through the Thanksgiving season without a word from or a trace of Jimmy. Not knowing the whereabouts of their son, who seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth, was nerveracking beyond comprehension. Death from accident or illness could have been accepted and dealt with, but the disappearance of their son, without a trace, was far more difficult. In addition, Christmas, 1995 was just around the corner. In December, almost three months after Jimmy vanished, and after law enforcement had failed in its searches, the break came that would provide a sad closure to the Jimmy Ryce case. Chavez lived in a trailer in the area, but he was not a suspect, since there was nothing suspicious about his life or actions to attract attention until some weeks later. The owners of the property on which the Chavez trailer was located realized some items were missing and suspected Chavez of having stolen them. During the search of the Chavez trailer, Jimmys backpack and books were found, and law enforcement officers were notified. Interrogation followed and a full confession obtained. Chavez had picked up Jimmy at gunpoint after he had gotten off the school bus, carried him to the Chavez trailer and shot him in the back as he attempted to escape. Jimmy had been violated in a most inhumane way, and after being killed, has body was cut into small pieces, placed in large pots and buried under cement. Officials, confirming the details of the confession, later dug up the pots. Officers had never seen a case as gruesome as the Jimmy Ryce case. Chavez came to trial, was convicted of the murder of Jimmy Ryce and sentenced to death. He remained on Death Row for almost 20 years before the sentence was consummated in February 2014. If ever a person deserved to die for his crime, it was Juan Carlos Chevez, admitted killer of Jimmy Ryce, in a hideous murder of an innocent child. It was a situation which no parent should ever experience, and while the sentence didnt restore Jimmy or bring him back, it brought a sense of closure to the family and community. Its difficult to impossible to find anything good in this terrible situation that inflicted pain on a family and on a community that will remain for years to come. Juan Carlos Chavez is dead. He has paid his debt to society, but what was the cost and what was accomplished? Certainly, society was avenged, but vengeance is not a legitimate reason for capital punishment. Families of victims usually say they have found closure after an execution, and that statement is difficult to refute, but a life sentence without possibility of parole punishes the inmate every day for as long as he lives, wherein an execution ends the punishment then and there. Believe me, life on the inside of a prison, with no hope of release, is punishment that continues day in and day out, until terminated by death. It is the ultimate penalty for crime. Capital punishment is practiced for one of two reasons: (1) Punishment of the perpetrator; (2) as a deterrent to others. Obviously, the death sentence, once carried out, is the ultimate punishment for murder and other serious crimes, and is 100-percent successful in individual cases. As a deterrent, the long wait between the commission of the crime and the punishment loses any value it may have in deterring others from committing crimes When an inmate is executed, the public can no longer remember the case without refreshing its memory. Western European nations have abandoned capital punishment, and it may be time for Americans to take a look as the pros and cons of the death penalty. In fact, it is highly probably that inmates have been put to death who are innocent of the crimes. In Georgia, a woman was executed for murder, and afterward, the court issued an opinion that she should have been charged with manslaughter rather than with murder. Execution is so permanent, and there is no reversing it. There may be an alternative to capital punishment. If so, let us move forward into a new era in which the sacredness of life is paramount, even for those who do not share our values. Buster Rahn Telegraph editorialist Capital punishment in Florida: time for a new look? Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Dear Editor: With all the bad press lately and the extreme financial stress on the town made by others (we wont mention names, of course), I feel its a little extreme to shut our little town altogether. I feel that Mr. Van Zant and Mr. Bradley should seriously reconsider this measure, as its not the fine citizens of Hamptons fault. Why should they shut it down? Its a city thats been incorporated since 1870. When I was a council member and then later the mayor, we went though our ups and downs financially, but always survived the storm, and it wasnt from any of the crap Im reading now in the newspaper and on the Internet, either. It breaks my heart to see a town I proudly represented for a total of 12 years, going though all this embarrassment and shame. We are probably the laughing stock in the state right now. So as a concerned citizen, please dont strip our town away from us. The towns people dont deserve that. We can rebuild with new blood in city hallfolks who want Hampton to remain and not be dissolved by the state. I urge our citizens to contact our state representatives and audit committee to reconsider presenting this measure in the 2015 legislature. Sincerely, Proud Hampton citizen and former mayor Jim MitzelPlease dont dissolve the town of HamptonDear Editor: If there was a Super Bowl of Hypocrisy or an Olympic medal for Hypocrisy on Ice, there is no question that the winner by default in both cases would be Barack H. Obama. Certainly every human being exhibits some symptoms of the affliction of hypocrisy, but I have never encountered anyone in the same class as our current, though unqualified, President. He takes the cake, the medal, the ribbon, the trophy, and anything else thats out there. At the recent National Day of Prayer Breakfast, the President gave a speech which included these words (and, although out of context, they can stand on their own). around the world freedom of religion is under threat and the killing of the innocent is never fulfilling Gods will; in fact, its the ultimate betrayal of Gods will. It just so happens that I know of a world leader who has foisted a healthcare overhaul on his own people that severely threatens the religious freedom of his people. That same world leader has also done more than any other previous leader of his country to ensure that unborn children will continue to be killed in his country, even though they are innocent of any wrongdoing. Is President Obama proud of his law that threatens religious freedom in the United States? Is he tremendously satisfied with knowing that he is wholeheartedly protecting a womans right to the ultimate betrayal of Gods will? Where does he really stand on these issues? Personally, I dont believe that he has a real opinion about any subject. What he says is not a reflection of what he believes President or king of deception?because he only says words that will gain him votes or the affirmation of a certain class of people. He is a pathological liar, so everything he says, whether contradictory or not, is simply true. If this hypocrite had a shred of decency, he would immediately resign from office and enroll in the nearest Fraud and Sham Rehab class. The only consolation I have is knowing that I didnt vote for this King of Deception. Leonard C. Young Keystone Heights Dear Editor: I have to compliment the Monitor for having the guts to print what people express in your column Letters. As I read the long letter that the man from Lawtey wrote, the feeling that it was words that came from a person who did not have his head in the ground like an ostrich. Many people ask the question how can God allow these things that happen-happen? What is the basis of the founding fathers of our country? GOD, and Country! In his first talk as president of the United States, George Washington said these words, A nation without God, is doomed to failure. We have taken God out of our schools, out of public affairs, out of the liberal media, and yet they ask, where is God on 9-11? What we send to Heaven, is what God sends back to us. I too could not watch that liar in his speech on the nation, and what worries me even more, is the degree of his tearing asunder the Constitution of these United States. The bumper stickers that I see on cars, God Bless America are a joke, they should say God help America. If my people will turn to me God help Americaand repent of their sins, I will heal their nation. I didnt make that upGod said it! Frank the Baker Keystone Heights Dear Editor: I read Mr. Rices letter, Where did all the Americans Go, with great interest. I have often wondered the same thing. I did watch The State of Union Address. I was curious to hear what lies he was going to tell this time. The beginning was a whopper of a lie. He stated that the war was over. Then he continued on with his greatest excess, his gift to gab. He knows that as long as he tells the American people what they want to hear they will believe him, whether he lives up to his promises or not. Unfortunately, we Americans have a tendency to   forget and to believe everything we are told or hear. He said these wars are to protect the United States against terrorist.   I disagree. They have been to protect Iraq and Afghanistan. In the beginning when Bush took $70 billion from Social Security, money we worked and put in Social Security to take up a cause his dear old daddy didnt follow up with. He tried to prove that Saddan Hussein had weapons of mass   destruction. He only proved that Saddan was robbing the Iraq people of their possessions. Still the war goes on.   Obama took up where Bush left off. Obama does not know anything about being a leader of The United States. I agree with Mr. Rice, Our President will destroy us if we 103 Edwards Road (next to Fays Salon)Starke 904-964-7579 Another reader wonders, Where did all the Americans go?dont do something to stop him. At the end of his speech, he stated how many military personnel was sent over there and said that 60,000 had been sent home. Last year he stated that all our military personnel would be back home by summer of 2014. Now he says that it will be the end of 2014. In my opinion, he broke his word to our military, their families and we Americans. In fact, I sent him a email asking him why he broke his word? I asked him how he could look at the ones who have come home with arms, legs, eyes, ears and minds missing, and still leave them over there. I told him that someone is killed here in the United States everyday, a child is abused and killed everyday. Seems to me that terrorist is alive and kicking right here in the United States.   The laws of today are written for the criminals, not the victims. As far as I am concerned, Barack Obama and his whole cabinet needs to be walked out of the White House. In my seventyfive years of life I have never known the United Stated to be in the position we are in today. People without jobs and cant get Unemployment money to buy food, pay their bills. These are people who have always worked and supported the United States. I dont see Obama, or his cabinet doing without their paychecks. Until we Americans take back our rights, nothing will change. In the end we will be the losers. Freedom as we know it will be no longer. We need to DEMAND that our military be brought home NOW not a year from now. Sincerely, Norma Greene

FL (US 301 North)Family Law & Will Preparation30 years experience Margaret will continue to serve clients in Alachua County as well as Bradford & Union counties Starke Police Sgt. Stephen Murphy enjoys fishing, though he is not an avid fisherman. However, he has some good friends who are. A couple of those friends include Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec, who competitively will match up well with any bass anglers in North Florida. For the past few years, Kadlec and Morrell have served as directors of the Murphys Law, Relay for Life Bass Tournament, which is traditionally held at the Little Santa Fe Lake boat ramp in March.   Many local fishermen look forward to this tournament each year.   Murphy speaks gratefully of the people who work so hard to make the tournament a success, including Kadlec, Morrell, his wife, Audrey, his sisters-in-law Virginia Autry and Ester Massey, his mother, Helen Haverty, and his mother-in-law, Abbie Massey. They work hard for a good cause and ask nothing in return, he said.   Relay for Life represents the American Cancer Society and its goal of curing cancer. The organization raises millions of dollars each year in more than 20 countries, with the help of more than four million people. Murphy has earned his name in the title of the bass tournament by his two-time victory over cancer. He successfully battled leukemia as a child and recently overcame kidney cancer. Today, he is cancer free. The tournament is scheduled for Saturday, March 15.   Preregistration is underway, and all potential fishermen should contact tournament directors Morrell (904-491-8476) or Kadlec (904-364-6668). All registered fishermen must meet at the Little Santa Fe ramp at 5 a.m., where they will pay the $70 entry fee and optional $10 big bass pot.   Donations of $250 or more will purchase expedited boat entry, though most of those positions have already been obtained. Boats will launch at safe light, and weigh-in will begin at 3 p.m.   Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle will be responsible for the weigh-in.Outdoors outlookNoel Kuhn, who guides surf fishermen on Floridas northeast coast, says the surf temperature is approximately 53 degrees, which is a little too cool for good spring fishing.   In order to really attract the inshore species, the water needs to be around 60 degrees. The first location to warm up will be the shallow holes in the inland waterways with muddy bottoms, and then the warmer water will gradually move to the surf. The same thing holds true in our local lakes. The ones that are shallower and darker in color will warm first, and the warm temperatures will spread to the deeper lakes with clearer water. The first of our local lakes to warm enough to stimulate the bass spawn should be Crosby and Rowell.   Next to the last should be Santa Fe, followed only by the deeper and clearer Kingsley Lake. Ed Allen fished the maiden cane around Sampson Lake last week and landed about 30 buck bass, and he indicated that only a few were of keeper size.   He thinks the smaller, male bass are moving into the shallows looking for places to fan. Once they establish their bed depressions in the sand, they will romance the larger females to move in shallow and join them for the spawn. This should be the trend we will see over the next month, with Kingsley Lake being the last to complete the bass spawn. David Davis of the Tackle Shack in Middleburg indicates that fishermen are catching specks along the shoreline cover of tributaries to the St. Johns, such as Black Creek.   He says the water in the lower St. Johns is cooler than the local lakes; consequently, the speck spawn in those waters tends to be the last of the year.   Having said that, Santa Fe, Newnans and even Orange Lake are giving up good Fins, Fur & Tails Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec not only organize shows.Murphys Law: Fish for a good causenumbers of spawning specks. Saltwater action on both coasts is giving up good inshore action. Joey Tyson says that Randy Harris can put you on the reds or trout anytime in the Steinhatchee area. On the east coast, black drum and sheepshead action is good around rocks and bridge pilings. The drum will hold in deeper water, however, than the sheepshead.

trip resulted in a diagnosis that Ryan found hard to believe congestive heart failure. I said, My what? I almost started laughing, Ryan said, adding that he felt perfectly fine at that time. Ryan was transported from Starke to Gainesville, where he underwent more testing. He was told the congestive heart failure was due to a worsening of his cardiomyopathy. Barbara said she was amazed when she saw Ryans chest X-rays. I always said he had a big heart, Barbara said, referring to Ryans personality, but he literally has a huge heart. On the X-ray, the lungs were amazingly small looking to the human eye because the heart was so big. Ryan was set to undergo yet another surgery, this time a myectomy to actually trim the heart muscle so that its not blocking blood vessels. Ryan said his condition was comparable to someone with 40-50-percent blockage of the arteries. Part of the surgery would entail stopping Ryans heart and keeping him alive on a machine. He told the doctor who was to perform the surgery he wasnt too wild about that idea. He made me laugh, Ryan said. He said, Your heart has been working hard for 36 or 37 years. Why dont you let it rest for 45 minutes? I thought that was funny. The surgery was supposed to last three to four hours. It was actually 11 hours. Barbara said the support of family and friends was certainly a big help during that length of time, but it didnt ease the anxiety over why the surgery was taking so long. That experience is almost surreal, Barbara said. You have to remove yourself from your body. Maybe thats a coping skill that helps us to deal with the fear and the unknown outcome. I felt almost a numbness for those 11 hours. When one of the surgeons finally greeted the family in the waiting room, he said there was good news and bad news. The good news was that the surgery was a success. The bad news was that Ryans cardiomyopathy was the worst case he and the other surgeon had seen. The surgeon told the family the surgery had bought Ryan some time, but that he would probably need a heart transplant in the future. In the meantime, Ryans recovery was a bit rocky, though there was a silver lining to his ordeal. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 D.O.T Physicals must be done by a National Registry Certified Medical Examiner ALL of your Drug & Alcohol Testing needsCall Us TodayFLORIDA WORKPLACE SAFETY & TESTING (904)769-1738 THE OFFICE SHOP130 West Call St. Starke, FL 32091FAX(904)964-6905www.theofficeshopofstarke.com B ARGAIN B UYS PHONE(904)964-5764 REDDISHContinued from 1B Recovery and renewalHe was anticipating a hospital stay of approximately five days. Instead, his stay lasted 51 days. For starters, Ryans chest could not be closed following the surgery because of swelling. His chest remained open for four days. Ryan said he didnt realize that was possible, but then again, he wasnt aware of any of it. Much of the time, of course, he was intubated, Barbara said. In the first few days following surgery, he was very medicated. We were just so distraught. The nurses assured us, He will not remember all of this. You will be the ones who will remember it. While he was in the hospital, Ryans sodium levels dropped to such low levels he was not even allowed to drink water. At one point, it appeared as if he was going to have to go on dialysis because his kidneys were failing. He also developed a blood clot in one of his legs as well as in his lungs. During that time, Ryan was receiving prayers from multiple churches. Barbara said people she didnt even know were praying for her son. Its at a time like this that you appreciate the fact you live in a small town, Barbara said. People rally behind you whenever you are in need. Ryan and his family will tell you his recovery is an example of Gods work. Take for example how Ryans kidneys were functioning normally the day after doctors had decided he was most likely going to have to start dialysis. The doctors couldnt explain the turnaround, Barbara said. Ryan said his faith strengthened after all he went through. He said he wasnt a heathen by any means, but admitted that his faith going into the surgery was more in the doctors abilities than it was in God. Ryan said he hardly prayed prior to the surgery. I didnt think about what was really important and what I should be thinking about, he said. Ryan said he had trouble breathing at one point during his hospital stay. He was convinced he had blood clots in his lungs or something that was causing him to labor so when taking a breath, but hospital staff seemed convinced he was having a panic attack. (It was discovered several days later that Ryan did have blood clots in his lungs.) At night, Ryan said he had a heart-to-heart talk with God. He admitted that he had a great life and that if he was to die that night, he would die a happy man. In fact, Ryan said he was almost convinced that he was going to die. He made it a point to call his wife just so he could tell her he loved her one last time. The following morning, Ryan woke up and felt fine. As the sun shone through the window, he whispered to himself over and over again, Praise God. Ryan said he was in no way the same kind of person as Charles Dickens Ebenezer Scrooge, but said he went through a similar transformation. He described that morning as the switch, which was the moment he said to himself that he was going to take a good life and make it even better. I feel like Ive been taught a lesson by Goddont be too cocky about things, Ryan said. Ive been humbled. I think it has definitely helped me in my faith. I feel like Im a better man because of it.Living life to the fullestRyan may not be skydiving, mountain climbing, riding a bull or participating in any similar sort of dangerous endeavor, but he said he can relate to the Tim McGraw song Live Like You Were Dying. He feels like hes been given a second chance. Im not saying Im doing anything crazy, but Im going to be a lot happier about my life, Ryan said. I just appreciate things a lot more. I let go of things more. Im just glad Im here. Im glad I can walk. I can jump. I can runa little bit. I need to lose a few poundsIm the heaviest Ive ever beenbut I physically feel the best I have ever felt in my adult life. Why not enjoy life? Ryan said hes got everything he needs, including a family he loves very much. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two daughters: Alyssa (11) and Sabella (1). Plus, a son is due to arrive at the end of April. And what about that bad news that was delivered following Ryans surgery? Ryan said he hasnt given much thought to the possibility of needing a heart transplant. He said hes been told that could be 15-20 years away. Ryan feels too good right now to be concerned. Plus, he considers himself blessed, no matter what hes gone through and what his future holds. Whenever you feel sorry for yourself, you can look around, and I guarantee you will find somebody way worse off than you are, Ryan said. As Ryan put it, Gods been too good to me. That attitude cant help but affect those who know Ryan. He has been a blessing to me, to my family and to everyone who knows him, Barbara said. He has inspired me. Ryan Reddish is pictured with his family: wife, Jennifer, 1-year-old daughter Sabella and 11-yearold daughter Alyssa. Ryan and Jennifer are expecting a son, whose due date is April 29.

Deary bringing culinary expertise to extension position BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Samara Deary was introduced this month as the county extension offices newest agent. Deary is replacing Melanie Thomas, who took another job, as the agent in charge of family and consumer science services. Unlike Thomas, who split her time between Bradford and Baker County, Deary is the first full-time family and consumer science agent the county has had in some time. For Dearywhom county commissioners immediately began calling Sama true introduction to Bradford County has been necessary. She grew up in Virginia, but moved to Florida around three years ago when her husbanda Jacksonville native who had retired from the Navy and worked for the post officewas transferred back here. Her knowledge of nutrition is based on her culinary arts education, received at Johnson & Wales University. She was the first in her family to get a bachelors degree, and later a masters degree. Her first education in food, however, was at home. Food was always pivotal in my family, Deary said. Her grandmother had a garden where she grew a variety of vegetables, a grape vine and multiple fruit trees. Growing, preserving and cooking food were a way of life growing up. Her grandmother is still at it, in fact, and when it gets time each year to put up those preserves, the family pitches in. Just being in the kitchen with my mom, watching her cook, and my grandmother, watching her cookand you know older people, when they cook, its not with a recipe; you have to watch them. Thats how you pick it up, she said. She has carried on the tradition with her children. She has a 19-year-old son and two daughters, 12 and 9. Everybody in my house cooks except for the dog, she said, and some of that food comes from their container gardens. Its really important that my kids understand that you dont just go to the store and think things pop up, and McDonalds is not the place that you live at. Everyone in my house can cook something from scratch. In Virginia she taught home economics at all girls school, with topics covering parenting and family relations, finances and nutrition. A chef instructor suggested she use her experience in catering and cuisine to apply for the position. She was surprised to find there was nothing really comparable in many Florida schools. Instead, Deary went to work for Samara Deary BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Shane Bennett is now full time on the job as Lawteys new chief of police, having wrapped things up with his former job for the Department of Corrections. Bennett is from Lawtey. He went to school there until the seventh grade, but his father, Donald Bubba Bennett, was a firefighter at Cecil Field, and the job promotions required the family move. The first moves were international, to the bases at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba and then Sigonella, Sicilly. Each move lasted a couple of years, and then the family returned to the states, living in Volusia County. His mother, Donna, a registered nurse, homeschooled him and his brother during their final years of high school, and his education didnt suffer for it. Bennett was accepted into a private college, Stetson University, on a full academic scholarship. There he studied in classes of around 15 students taught by professors with PhDs, keeping his grades up while majoring in history, with a minor in political science. I missed most of the fun parties, Bennett joked, saying he had to keep his GPA above 3.2. He graduated with a 3.6. After college, Bennett, who had worked for a short time as a correctional officer before college, went back to work for the state as a probation officer, then after three years moved to the Volusia County Sheriffs Office. Bennett knew he wanted to be in law enforcement and he earned his stripes working for an agency with 500 deputies and answering more than 20 calls a night. He said when he got in his car and booted up his computer, there would already be multiple calls needing his attention. He stayed busy to be sure, but it could also be mundane, responding repeatedly to the same types of calls, and stressful, too. People dont call the police because all is well, Bennett said. What made it worth it were those occasions where his presence made a difference, like providing comfort in the middle of the night to someone who was afraid. Every now and then, law enforcement will offer you those moments to do something really rewarding, he said. While his brother, Casey, now lives in Tennessee, Bennett moved back to Lawtey in 2004 with his parents when his father, whose job had continued moving him around the country, retired. With Bennett were his wife, Tammy, and their son, Colton. (They are now divorced, but remain great friends, he said.) Bennett approached Police Chief Butch Jordan for a job, and he went to work for the city part time and also full time for the state in classifications at the Reception and Medical Center. When he went from a full-time position in Volusia County to working part-time in Lawtey, he learned there was a world of difference in policing a small town. For example, he was told instead of seven or eight domestic complaint calls a night, he could expect that many in a years time. It was on just such a call that Jordan taught him how small town police work was donewith a human touch. Being here allows you the time to sit down and try to come up with the right answer versus just throwing Lawtey Police Chief Shane Bennett In the sunshine? Hampton holds emergency meeting and state announces hearing BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor As if Hampton didnt have enough problems, the city council apparently held an emergency meeting Feb. 17 with limited public notice and no notice to the media. According to a telephone call from a citizen who attended the meeting, the purpose was to vote to advertise for someone to fill the vacant position of city clerk. The council reportedly acquiesced to public pressure and agreed to try to find someone to fill the maintenance position as well after it was revealed Adam Hall is apparently still on the job and using a city vehicle. He is the son of former City Clerk Jane Hall and Councilman Charles Hall, who has been absent from recent meetings. The public was told just last week that Adam Hall had resigned, as had Marshal John Hodges and Clerk Christina Mobley. Myrtice McCullough, currently serving as acting mayor, did not return a call seeking comment about the meeting, including why the council felt an unscheduled meeting was in order. The caller said notes about the meeting appeared around town, including on an ice machine at a convenience store. FFA BFFs

A Facebook pagewhich incidentally rips off the logo of Hampton Inn hotel chainwas created urging people to save Hampton, but its founder, Jim Mitzel, a former mayor and councilman, couldnt offer a reason for saving the town other than its long history. When asked how the governments existence benefits the public or if he had a plan to make the corrections called for by the audit, he had no answer, except to say that there must be a way to save the town besides placing a closed sign on city hall. That stands in contrast to what Sen. Rob Bradley told Time magazine when asked about getting support for abolishing Hampton, saying many people dont understand why it exists in the first place. Bradley, whose district covers Bradford County, sits on the Florida Joint Legislative Auditing Committee, which heard the audit results last week, and he will be here for a hearing next week along with Rep. Charles Van Zant of Keystone Heights, whose request got the audit rolling. That hearing on the dissolution of Hampton is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 27, at 6 p.m. at the Bradford County Courthouse. It is, of course, open to the public. Continued from 1A them in jail and letting the courts figure it out, he said. Most people are good people but may be in a bad situation. Bad guys go to jail. We believe that, we do that. But other people, there might be other things on the spectrum you can do for them. Bennett told the story of going to an apartment with Jordan one night in response to a complaint about a couple arguing. Bennett defaulted to his textbook approach of trying to separate the two, but instead, Jordan pulled them both inside and proceeded to give the man a good talking to, telling him he should be ashamed for coming home intoxicated and fighting with his wife. He said, Ill tell you what were going to do. We cant have this going on. You all are waking the neighbors up. Bennett said Jordan went to the bedroom, grabbed a pillow and blanket, and told the husband he was going to spend the night on the couch. I walked out and I went, Really? Back in Volusia, Bennett said they would have taken the husband in on a disorderly charge to ensure they wouldnt be called back the same night. Not necessary here, he said. They respected him. They were glad he showed up, said Bennett. If youre stealing peoples hard-earned property, selling drugs to kids, are somehow a danger to public safety, then he said you will go to jail, no matter who you are or who you know. But if youre in trouble and need help, Bennett wants the Lawtey Police Department to be there for you as long as you are also willing to help yourself. Thats what I learned from Butch. Treat your citizens right. Help them, dont harass them, he said. From the outside, however, the department has a different reputation. It has been bandied far and wide that Lawtey is a speed trap and that its police department takes advantage of the citys position in pursuit of funding from citations. Bennett takes issue with that view of Lawtey. The city has a major highway thorough the center of town passing a school, businesses and busy pedestrian crossing, and the speed limit (which is set by the state) needs to be enforced, he said. Yet of the thousands of cars that pass through the city every day, only a fraction of a percentan average of 15 a dayare ever pulled over and issued a citation. We dont write a single speeding ticket where the person wasnt going at least 10 or 11 mph over. Most are going faster than that, Bennett said. I dont think anybodys being trapped at all. The revenue collectedabout $36 per ticketisnt enough to pay for the department, let alone provide a windfall for the city council, he said. He is looking at other ways to fund the department, including grant writing and seizures from drug interdiction. I dont like that reputation, I dont think its earned, and were going to start doing things to maybe try to get away from that, he said. Traffic enforcement on that major U.S. highway that goes straight through our town is important to us. Were going to keep enforcing it, but its not all we do. Bennett doesnt want officers tied up by U.S. 301, either. They have calls to take around the city, and he is proud of the short response time. Neighborhood presence and business patrol is something the citizens have told him they want, and so they are getting it. In addition to cultivating a good relationship with the public, Bennett said he also has a good relationship with the city council, which wasnt always true with the former chief. I think its important to understand that were a small town with limited resources. Weve got the same problems they have in lots of other places. You got just so much to go around, and Im in a department that competes for those resources, he said. Not always coming first in the fight for those resources isnt personal, he added. There are other needs that sometimes take priority. Were trying to do good work for the right reasons, Bennett said of the citys government. A lot of past issues could be chalked up to poor communication, he said. But he wants to be as transparent as possible. The more you are open, the more you communicate, the less mistrust you have, he said. Bennett said he wanted to follow Chief Jordan to build on his 50-year legacy and move the department into the modern eragetting computers in cars and moving to a computerized records system, expanding funding opportunities, and strengthening the departments community service. Working with him is his captain, Nathan Blom, his second in command with years of experience and commitment to the community, Bennett said. He shares the administrative load. As sergeant of special projectsa new designationMichael Starling will be the department liaison for community events and oversee enforcement waves like Click It or Ticket. Michael Gillick, Shawn Brown and Kelly Brown are the senior patrol officers, which means they have been with the agency, undergone advanced training, have a good record and can serve as mentors for the nine other patrol officers. It sounds like a sizable force for Lawtey, but other than Bennett, all of the officers are part time. That is something that could change as he weighs the pros and cons of a hybrid force of fulland part-timers. If history repeats itself, Bennett should have time to work it out. Jordan broke a record for his years in the position, and Bennett was unchallenged when he stepped up to replace the retiring chief. For now, he said hes fortunate to have the job and hes willing to do it until the people decide hes no longer the man for the job. He wants the public to know that that the department belongs to them, and he said hes open to ideas. One of the benefits of a small community is direct interaction with its leaders, he said. Bennett seems more than settled in his hometown, raising his son, who is also homeschooled, and spending time with his girlfriend and her children. He doesnt have much time to play music anymore, but the academic in him still reads a lot, particularly historical novels and nonfiction, magazines like The Economist and even an occasional New York Times. And he eschews television. He doesnt have one at home. Not that he has an ego about that or anything he does. Bennett said thats where a lot of public officials fail. He said leadership could make people territorial, closed-minded and incapable of owning their mistakes. Ego stands in the way of the kind of cooperation necessary to truly serve the public, he said.

Hope students learn about college options BY VIRGINIA DENMARK Hope Christian Academy Representatives from seven colleges participated in Hope Christian Academys College and Career Fair Feb. 5. The event was hosted in the school gym and featured booths and information from Trinity Baptist College, University of North Florida, Clearwater Christian College, Johnson University, St. Johns River State College, Pensacola Christian College and Baptist College of Florida. We wanted an event where students could be exposed to many different college options, said instructor Tyler Hildebran, who suggested the event. A lot of students might only consider larger universities, but we wanted them to realize there are more local, affordable and Christian options available to them. The event, coordinated by HCA High School Principal Tori Schenck and Mary McCarthy, offered just that for the students and was met with much enthusiasm. It was exciting to watch the students interact with the college representatives, said Schenck. I was told by the representatives that the students asked wonderful questions and were engaged in conversation, which they did not see often in all of the schools they visit. I was proud of our students for that reason, and I feel that they were given some helpful information and exposed to opportunities that they did not know were out there for them. Hope Christian Academy has 320 students from infants through 12th grade. Twenty of the high school students are already dual enrolled in Santa Fe College. the extension program in Duval County. She was a program assistant for a program known as EFNEPthe Expanded Food Nutrition Education Program. She went into the community and worked with families, teaching them how to prepare budget-friendly meals that were also good for them. I was really fortunate to come across extension, because I really didnt know about extension before, even though I was always in the vicinity of an extension office, she said. When Thomas got her new job in Duval County, the position here opened up, and Bradford Extension Director Tim Wilson said he new very quickly Deary was the right person for the job. Deary said she wants meet the needs of the community and is spending time learning what people would like to see from her. Health educationincluding diabetes and heart healthis a priority. Teaching people with these and similar conditions that they can cook and eat in ways that support health is important, as well as getting them moving with a walking program. Gardening and the benefits of eating fresh produce is also something shed like to teach to kids as well as adults. While she admits she shares a weakness for desserts with most people, she is also adept at preparing vegetables and doing things that are beyond the every day, such as cooking Asian cuisine. She has plans to work with 4-H but also at the senior center and the library. Where the community is at, thats where Deary wants to be. Im really excited about it, she said. Also exciting is the possibility of her parents moving to Florida, so the state is feeling more and more like home all the time.

Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. My favorite Christmas decoration this past year was the huge poinsettia growing in my yard. It was planted many years ago by my mother, who always had these beautiful ornamentals growing in her flowerbeds. I can remember once, when I was a child, a perfect stranger knocked on the door of our home in Hawthorne to ask if he could take pictures of mothers prized poinsettias. My poinsettia reached a height of over eight feet before harsh winds stripped many of the leaves away and the freezes that hit after Christmas finished the job. But I know it will come back again next year. Mothers method of propagating poinsettias was remarkably easy, and its always worked well for me. Once the weather warmed up, shed break all the dead limbs from her plant. Shed cut any remaining living stalks to her desired height, around one or two feet. Then, she would cut the still viable limbs shed removed from the plant into twelve-inch sections, and stick them in the ground. She made the cuts at an angle, so they slid into the ground easily without the need for any digging. Im pretty sure she learned this technique from her mother. In any event, they always sprouted! All they needed was water. Maybe you dont have any giant poinsettias growing in your yard. You might have some bedraggled potted poinsettia plants that you purchased for the Christmas holidays on your porch or stuck in an inconspicuous corner of your yard. That wouldnt be surprising, because poinsettias are the number one flowering plant sold in America during the holiday season. When the danger of frost is past, you can transition your potted poinsettias to your landscape. To do this, cut off the fading bracts, or dying colored leaves, and leave four to six inches of stem on each branch. Begin monthly fertilization and move the potted plant to a partly shaded location in your yard for one to two weeks before you transplant it into the ground. This helps the plant acclimate to its new location. Choose a site that receives full sun during most of the day but make sure it doesnt receive any artificial nighttime light from nearby streetlights or windows. This is very important if you want your plant to flowerand who doesnt? Poinsettias require 14 hours of complete darkness each night during the fall for six to eight weeks prior to flowering. Poinsettias prefer moist, well-drained soils with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Place the plant in the soil at the same depth it was growing in the pot. Gently firm the soil around the plant and water well. Keep it mulched and well watered until established. Continue to fertilize monthly from May to September. Poinsettias, which were introduced by the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett, in 1825, are tropical plants. Consequently, freeze damage is a problem in our area. Plants incorporated into the landscape should be pruned to a height of 12 to 18 inches after the danger of frost is past or to living tissue if they have been damaged by cold. Tall plants may become leggy and unattractive, so its a good idea to prune them regularly during the growing season. This may be done once a month, leaving four leaves on each shoot. Pruning should be discontinued after Sept. 10. Flower buds will begin to develop in October. Delay or disruption of flowering will occur if fall temperatures are too warm or too cold.

This years theme is Ignite and it embraces more than 80 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organizations future. More than half a million members will participate in National FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members have a passion for agriculture. Designated as National FFA Week in 1947, the week of George Washingtons birthday is FFA Week, and runs from Saturday to Saturday. FFA Week gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their school and community learn about FFA and agricultural education. According to instructor Allison Hartley, some of the activities planned in Bradford County included a teacher appreciation breakfast, the Ag Olympic games, a nursing home visit, a livestock judging contest (students will be traveling to Kissimmee) and a dance. More contests, fundraisers and activities are planned for the remainder of the school year. In its second year, the fulltime program at Bradford Middle School has grown to 85 FFA members, Hartley said. The Agriscience Academy is also in its second year, offering high school science credit to students who complete it. Todays FFA members are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. Through agricultural and hands-on learning, they are preparing for more than 300 career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resources industry. National FFA Week is sponsored by Tractor Supply Company as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 579,678 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

medication as his brother, and his condition was monitored over the years. Nothing seemed to change in his condition until one night in 2012 when he had trouble breathing. Ryan said he had eaten shrimp that night and thought he was having some sort of allergic reaction. Finally, at 2 a.m., after trying unsuccessfully to get to sleep, Ryan told his wife, Jennifer, he needed to go to the hospital. That There is something unusual about his back Those were the words of John Reddish after Ryan was born. Despite his concern, the pediatrician assured John and Barbara there was nothing wrong with their son. When Ryan was 6 months old, he developed pneumonia and was admitted to the hospital. After X-rays, the pediatrician had to admit that something was indeed wrong. He had an extreme case of scoliosis, Barbara said. The parents were referred to another physician, who said the only option for Ryan was to have surgery. The diagnosis was that he wouldnt live to see the age of 20 otherwise. Surgery, which included a spinal fusion, was performed when Ryan was 10 months old. That left him in a full-body cast, plus he also had a cast on his left foot, which had some abnormalities. Barbara expected her infant son to express his discomfort at having to be in a body cast for the next six months, but she said he actually had a pleasant disposition throughout. I envisioned nights of not sleeping and probably a lot of discomfort and crying, but he was just delightful, Barbara said. A trip to his orthopedic physician at the age of 14 revealed that Ryans spine had started to curve again. Ryan had to have surgery again to insert Harrington rods along his spine. As you can imagine, this surgery was a lot different for Ryan than the one he had as an infant. He was old enough to be aware of what was going on. That was scary, Ryan said. Following the surgery, Ryan had to wear a brace, which was uncomfortable and, of course, not the thing a teenager wants to have to deal with. Youre in high school, youre trying to impress girls and stuff, and youre walking around like a Ninja Turtle, Ryan said. Not that he complained. Like the infant in a full-body cast that never fussed, the teenaged Ryan seemed to take it all in stride. His mother said thats basically been his approach to life. Always this wonderful attitude, Barbara said. He was never bitter. He was never a child that complained about anything. Though scoliosis was Ryans concern at that point in his life, he and his family were aware of the fact that his heart never moved from the right side of his chest to the left side prior to birth. However, his heart was functioning fine. Barbara said the joke was that Ryan would have to place his left hand over the right side of his chest when pledging allegiance to the flag. In time, though, Ryan faced a bigger concern than what side his heart was on. Not a mistake Barbara was thinking the doctor must have been confused. Perhaps he was looking at her son Chads records. Ryan was making an annual visit to the cardiologist when he was 22. The cardiologist said Ryan had cardiomyopathythe same disease his brother had been diagnosed with. On the way home, I dont think we hardly said a word to each other, Barbara said. We were just both so stunned by the diagnosis. Cardiomyopathy is a hereditary disease that causes the heart muscle to become enlarged. In Chads case, the disease caused him to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest at the age of 16. Surviving such an incident is approximately 5 percent, but Chad did survive. Now, not only was the Reddish family learning that Ryan had the disease, too, but that Ryans heart was even more enlarged than his brothers. I was just blown away, Ryan said. This whole time I felt so sorry for my brother and what he had gone through. I was terrified for him. Then, all of a sudden, we later learned that Im worse. Ryan was put on the same BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Why? A one-word question that so easily pops into anybodys mind during troubling times. It was a question Ryan Reddish of Starke asked himself as a 22-year-old who had received a diagnosis of having a serious heart condition. Now, 16 years later, Reddish is not asking why. The open-heart surgery he had two years ago and the series of complications he experienced in the hospital in its aftermath has changed his outlook on life, causing him to take stock of whats really important and to rely more upon God. Its been a blessing in disguise, Reddish said. All that has happened was bad, but its made me a better person physically and spiritually. His life has been quite a story, starting with having surgery at 10 months of age and later being diagnosed with the same heart condition his older brother, Chad, has. Barbara and John Reddish have two sons who are alive today and able to experience the joy of their families, but at times, it looked as if that wouldnt be reality. Its just been an unusual journey, Barbara Reddish said. Its rare that a set of parents comes so close to losing two of their children, yet miraculously they get them both back. I never see either of them where I dont have an immediate flashback of what could have been. I have a deep appreciation of what the outcome for both of them was. I am still in awe that theyre still here. That unusual journey in Ryans case began with something unrelated to his heart. said.

Nadler, a 2004 Keystone Heights High School graduate who currently lives in Dallas, participated in Januarys USA Half Marathon Championships in Houston, crossing the finish line in 1:03.55 and earning a spot in the Feb. 13, 2016, U.S. Olympic Team Trials. It feels great, Nadler said. I started back running and set that goal for myself. Olympic trial-qualifying races began in August 2013, but last months USA Half Marathon Championships was Nadlers first attempt in qualifying. He felt confident, though, in his ability to finish with a qualifying time of 1:05. Nadler did more than reach that time, establishing personalrecord 10K and 15K times of 30:06 and 45:04. I felt like I had a great shot of achieving it, but I ran faster than I expected, Nadler said. At KHHS, Nadler participated in both cross country and track and field. As a senior, he was a district runner-up and regional champion in cross country before placing third at the state finals with a personal record of 15:37. In track and field as a KHHS senior, Nadler was the district champion in the 1600m and district runner-up in the 3200m. He went on to finish as the regional runner-up in the 3200m and place fourth at state in the event with a personal-record time of 9:27.09.

before defeating Lemon Bays Ryan Dodge in the third-place match. Bradford had two first-time state qualifiers in junior Shayne Kahakua-Lodivero (106 class) and sophomore J.T. Griffis (113). Most first-time state participants are in awe of the immensity of the event and have what Adams said is called newbie shock. A lot of those wrestlers wind up going 0-2, but Griffis did get a win, which came in the first round. He pinned Somerset Academys Daniel Valledor in 2:13 before losing 21-9 to eventual sixthplace finisher Jacob Denning of Rockledge.

Now, Nadler has plenty of time to train in preparation for the Olympic trials, which will be held in Los Angeles. It will be a different type of training, though. Nadler was specifically training to run a half marathon for last months qualifying race, but he will have to run a full marathon at the Olympic trials. He said he will probably participate in his first full marathon this fall in a city like Chicago or New York. At the Olympic trials, Nadler said he would have to finish in the top three to qualify for the U.S. marathon team. He admitted thats a long shot, but that doesnt mean he wont be going all out to STATE Continued from 1B Starkes Northside Christian Academy hosted Ugandan Thunder, a childrens choir from the Royal School and Orphanage in Uganda, Jan. 28-29. Each year, 20-25 Royal School and Orphanage students, ranging in age from 8 to 16, are chosen to spend six months in the United States, traveling to churches and schools, collecting love offerings, raising awareness of the lack of food in their country and encouraging people to sponsor orphans in their country for $9 a month. In June 2013, 21 children at Royal School and Orphanage began practicing eight hours a day for the six months they would be in America. This preparation was much different from that of most touring singers. Royal School and Orphanage childrens purpose was to collect enough love offerings to feed 5,000 children for a year. Uganda is a warand disease-ravaged country, with many children losing their loved ones to war and AIDS. Northside Christian Academy students, parents and staff raised $1,200 for Pennies for Posho in the two weeks leading up to Ugandan Thunders visit. Pennies for Posho helps feed children at Royal School and Orpanage and 13 other orphanages. (Posho is the staple food of Uganda and other countries in Africa.) Ted Moody, who founded Pennies for Posho, said the NCA love offering was the largest the organization had ever received from a school. The opportunity to interact with students from another part of the world had an impact on NCA students and staff. Shane Worten said, I am ready to go work in a Ugandan orphanage. Seeing how little they have, and yet how happy they are, is really life changing. As the children of Ugandan Thunder prepared to leave NCA, everyone present gathered in a circle around the schools gymnasium and sang. The overall experience has NCA students and staff already looking forward to next years visit. For more on Ugandan Thunder, visit the website www. penniesforposho.org.

4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 Editorial/Opinion Bradford County Telegraph Union County Times Lake Region Monitor The state of Florida executed another inmate on Feb. 12, and while it made front-page news in the Gainesville Sun, it hardly made a ripple in the news elsewhere. Certainly, the residents of Union and Bradford counties were unaware of the incident, unless they traveled along S.R. 16 during the time of the execution and saw the people standing in the field across the highway from Florida State Prison. In Florida, the death sentence is performed with clock-like efficiency from experience gained through executing 83 convicted murderers since 1972. Department of Corrections personnel carry out the executions in Florida State Prison, on the banks of New River, in Bradford County. As of today, 399 inmates remain on Death Row, awaiting final disposition of their cases. There are always two groups of people standing on the north side of S.R. 16 when an execution is scheduled, representing the pro and con of capital punishment. The groups remain segregated, and there has never been a problem between them while on state property. Inmate Juan Carlos Chavez, 26, was a South Florida farm worker in September 1995 when 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce failed to return home after getting off the school bus. A diligent and thorough search of the community yielded no clues to his disappearance and the case remained in limbo for lack of information. The Ryce family was devastated as they lived through the Thanksgiving season without a word from or a trace of Jimmy. Not knowing the whereabouts of their son, who seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth, was nerveracking beyond comprehension. Death from accident or illness could have been accepted and dealt with, but the disappearance of their son, without a trace, was far more difficult. In addition, Christmas, 1995 was just around the corner. In December, almost three months after Jimmy vanished, and after law enforcement had failed in its searches, the break came that would provide a sad closure to the Jimmy Ryce case. Chavez lived in a trailer in the area, but he was not a suspect, since there was nothing suspicious about his life or actions to attract attention until some weeks later. The owners of the property on which the Chavez trailer was located realized some items were missing and suspected Chavez of having stolen them. During the search of the Chavez trailer, Jimmys backpack and books were found, and law enforcement officers were notified. Interrogation followed and a full confession obtained. Chavez had picked up Jimmy at gunpoint after he had gotten off the school bus, carried him to the Chavez trailer and shot him in the back as he attempted to escape. Jimmy had been violated in a most inhumane way, and after being killed, has body was cut into small pieces, placed in large pots and buried under cement. Officials, confirming the details of the confession, later dug up the pots. Officers had never seen a case as gruesome as the Jimmy Ryce case. Chavez came to trial, was convicted of the murder of Jimmy Ryce and sentenced to death. He remained on Death Row for almost 20 years before the sentence was consummated in February 2014. If ever a person deserved to die for his crime, it was Juan Carlos Chevez, admitted killer of Jimmy Ryce, in a hideous murder of an innocent child. It was a situation which no parent should ever experience, and while the sentence didnt restore Jimmy or bring him back, it brought a sense of closure to the family and community. Its difficult to impossible to find anything good in this terrible situation that inflicted pain on a family and on a community that will remain for years to come. Juan Carlos Chavez is dead. He has paid his debt to society, but what was the cost and what was accomplished? Certainly, society was avenged, but vengeance is not a legitimate reason for capital punishment. Families of victims usually say they have found closure after an execution, and that statement is difficult to refute, but a life sentence without possibility of parole punishes the inmate every day for as long as he lives, wherein an execution ends the punishment then and there. Believe me, life on the inside of a prison, with no hope of release, is punishment that continues day in and day out, until terminated by death. It is the ultimate penalty for crime. Capital punishment is practiced for one of two reasons: (1) Punishment of the perpetrator; (2) as a deterrent to others. Obviously, the death sentence, once carried out, is the ultimate punishment for murder and other serious crimes, and is 100-percent successful in individual cases. As a deterrent, the long wait between the commission of the crime and the punishment loses any value it may have in deterring others from committing crimes When an inmate is executed, the public can no longer remember the case without refreshing its memory. Western European nations have abandoned capital punishment, and it may be time for Americans to take a look as the pros and cons of the death penalty. In fact, it is highly probably that inmates have been put to death who are innocent of the crimes. In Georgia, a woman was executed for murder, and afterward, the court issued an opinion that she should have been charged with manslaughter rather than with murder. Execution is so permanent, and there is no reversing it. There may be an alternative to capital punishment. If so, let us move forward into a new era in which the sacredness of life is paramount, even for those who do not share our values. Buster Rahn Telegraph editorialist Capital punishment in Florida: time for a new look? Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Dear Editor: With all the bad press lately and the extreme financial stress on the town made by others (we wont mention names, of course), I feel its a little extreme to shut our little town altogether. I feel that Mr. Van Zant and Mr. Bradley should seriously reconsider this measure, as its not the fine citizens of Hamptons fault. Why should they shut it down? Its a city thats been incorporated since 1870. When I was a council member and then later the mayor, we went though our ups and downs financially, but always survived the storm, and it wasnt from any of the crap Im reading now in the newspaper and on the Internet, either. It breaks my heart to see a town I proudly represented for a total of 12 years, going though all this embarrassment and shame. We are probably the laughing stock in the state right now. So as a concerned citizen, please dont strip our town away from us. The towns people dont deserve that. We can rebuild with new blood in city hallfolks who want Hampton to remain and not be dissolved by the state. I urge our citizens to contact our state representatives and audit committee to reconsider presenting this measure in the 2015 legislature. Sincerely, Proud Hampton citizen and former mayor Jim Mitzel Please dont dissolve the town of Hampton Dear Editor: If there was a Super Bowl of Hypocrisy or an Olympic medal for Hypocrisy on Ice, there is no question that the winner by default in both cases would be Barack H. Obama. Certainly every human being exhibits some symptoms of the affliction of hypocrisy, but I have never encountered anyone in the same class as our current, though unqualified, President. He takes the cake, the medal, the ribbon, the trophy, and anything else thats out there. At the recent National Day of Prayer Breakfast, the President gave a speech which included these words (and, although out of context, they can stand on their own). around the world freedom of religion is under threat and the killing of the innocent is never fulfilling Gods will; in fact, its the ultimate betrayal of Gods will. It just so happens that I know of a world leader who has foisted a healthcare overhaul on his own people that severely threatens the religious freedom of his people. That same world leader has also done more than any other previous leader of his country to ensure that unborn children will continue to be killed in his country, even though they are innocent of any wrongdoing. Is President Obama proud of his law that threatens religious freedom in the United States? Is he tremendously satisfied with knowing that he is wholeheartedly protecting a womans right to the ultimate betrayal of Gods will? Where does he really stand on these issues? Personally, I dont believe that he has a real opinion about any subject. What he says is not a reflection of what he believes President or king of deception? because he only says words that will gain him votes or the affirmation of a certain class of people. He is a pathological liar, so everything he says, whether contradictory or not, is simply true. If this hypocrite had a shred of decency, he would immediately resign from office and enroll in the nearest Fraud and Sham Rehab class. The only consolation I have is knowing that I didnt vote for this King of Deception. Leonard C. Young Keystone Heights Dear Editor: I have to compliment the Monitor for having the guts to print what people express in your column Letters. As I read the long letter that the man from Lawtey wrote, the feeling that it was words that came from a person who did not have his head in the ground like an ostrich. Many people ask the question how can God allow these things that happen-happen? What is the basis of the founding fathers of our country? GOD, and Country! In his first talk as president of the United States, George Washington said these words, A nation without God, is doomed to failure. We have taken God out of our schools, out of public affairs, out of the liberal media, and yet they ask, where is God on 9-11? What we send to Heaven, is what God sends back to us. I too could not watch that liar in his speech on the nation, and what worries me even more, is the degree of his tearing asunder the Constitution of these United States. The bumper stickers that I see on cars, God Bless America are a joke, they should say God help America. If my people will turn to me God help America and repent of their sins, I will heal their nation. I didnt make that upGod said it! Frank the Baker Keystone Heights Dear Editor: I read Mr. Rices letter, Where did all the Americans Go, with great interest. I have often wondered the same thing. I did watch The State of Union Address. I was curious to hear what lies he was going to tell this time. The beginning was a whopper of a lie. He stated that the war was over. Then he continued on with his greatest excess, his gift to gab. He knows that as long as he tells the American people what they want to hear they will believe him, whether he lives up to his promises or not. Unfortunately, we Americans have a tendency to forget and to believe everything we are told or hear. He said these wars are to protect the United States against terrorist. I disagree. They have been to protect Iraq and Afghanistan. In the beginning when Bush took $70 billion from Social Security, money we worked and put in Social Security to take up a cause his dear old daddy didnt follow up with. He tried to prove that Saddan Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. He only proved that Saddan was robbing the Iraq people of their possessions. Still the war goes on. Obama took up where Bush left off. Obama does not know anything about being a leader of The United States. I agree with Mr. Rice, Our President will destroy us if we 103 Edwards Road (next to Fays Salon)Starke 904-964-7579 Another reader wonders, Where did all the Americans go? dont do something to stop him. At the end of his speech, he stated how many military personnel was sent over there and said that 60,000 had been sent home. Last year he stated that all our military personnel would be back home by summer of 2014. Now he says that it will be the end of 2014. In my opinion, he broke his word to our military, their families and we Americans. In fact, I sent him a email asking him why he broke his word? I asked him how he could look at the ones who have come home with arms, legs, eyes, ears and minds missing, and still leave them over there. I told him that someone is killed here in the United States everyday, a child is abused and killed everyday. Seems to me that terrorist is alive and kicking right here in the United States. The laws of today are written for the criminals, not the victims. As far as I am concerned, Barack Obama and his whole cabinet needs to be walked out of the White House. In my seventyfive years of life I have never known the United Stated to be in the position we are in today. People without jobs and cant get Unemployment money to buy food, pay their bills. These are people who have always worked and supported the United States. I dont see Obama, or his cabinet doing without their paychecks. Until we Americans take back our rights, nothing will change. In the end we will be the losers. Freedom as we know it will be no longer. We need to DEMAND that our military be brought home NOW not a year from now. Sincerely, Norma Greene

The Tornadoes (3-0) have yet to give up a run this season and have now beaten two district opponents by a combined score of 32-0. Bradford scored 13 runs in the first inning off of nine hits, including two RBI doubles by Taylor Cruce. After hitting her first double, Cruce scored on a single by Ashton Adkins to put Bradford up 2-0. Consecutive singles by Rodgers and Mackenzie Gault loaded the bases before batters Shelby 6B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 C ommercial Residential Fleets Autogas Farms Industry Piping for NewConstruction or Home Remodeling M ost Major Brands Factory Trained4031 S.W SR 121 Lake Butler, FL 32054 W illiamsLPGas.com wlpgas@windstream.net(386) 496-3725 Does your business have a story to tell?

FL (US 301 North)Family Law & Will Preparation30 years experience Margaret will continue to serve clients in Alachua County as well as Bradford & Union counties Starke Police Sgt. Stephen Murphy enjoys fishing, though he is not an avid fisherman. However, he has some good friends who are. A couple of those friends include Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec, who competitively will match up well with any bass anglers in North Florida. For the past few years, Kadlec and Morrell have served as directors of the Murphys Law, Relay for Life Bass Tournament, which is traditionally held at the Little Santa Fe Lake boat ramp in March. Many local fishermen look forward to this tournament each year. Murphy speaks gratefully of the people who work so hard to make the tournament a success, including Kadlec, Morrell, his wife, Audrey, his sisters-in-law Virginia Autry and Ester Massey, his mother, Helen Haverty, and his mother-in-law, Abbie Massey. They work hard for a good cause and ask nothing in return, he said. Relay for Life represents the American Cancer Society and its goal of curing cancer. The organization raises millions of dollars each year in more than 20 countries, with the help of more than four million people. Murphy has earned his name in the title of the bass tournament by his two-time victory over cancer. He successfully battled leukemia as a child and recently overcame kidney cancer. Today, he is cancer free. The tournament is scheduled for Saturday, March 15. Preregistration is underway, and all potential fishermen should contact tournament directors Morrell (904-491-8476) or Kadlec (904-364-6668). All registered fishermen must meet at the Little Santa Fe ramp at 5 a.m., where they will pay the $70 entry fee and optional $10 big bass pot. Donations of $250 or more will purchase expedited boat entry, though most of those positions have already been obtained. Boats will launch at safe light, and weigh-in will begin at 3 p.m. Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle will be responsible for the weigh-in. Outdoors outlook Noel Kuhn, who guides surf fishermen on Floridas northeast coast, says the surf temperature is approximately 53 degrees, which is a little too cool for good spring fishing. In order to really attract the inshore species, the water needs to be around 60 degrees. The first location to warm up will be the shallow holes in the inland waterways with muddy bottoms, and then the warmer water will gradually move to the surf. The same thing holds true in our local lakes. The ones that are shallower and darker in color will warm first, and the warm temperatures will spread to the deeper lakes with clearer water. The first of our local lakes to warm enough to stimulate the bass spawn should be Crosby and Rowell. Next to the last should be Santa Fe, followed only by the deeper and clearer Kingsley Lake. Ed Allen fished the maiden cane around Sampson Lake last week and landed about 30 buck bass, and he indicated that only a few were of keeper size. He thinks the smaller, male bass are moving into the shallows looking for places to fan. Once they establish their bed depressions in the sand, they will romance the larger females to move in shallow and join them for the spawn. This should be the trend we will see over the next month, with Kingsley Lake being the last to complete the bass spawn. David Davis of the Tackle Shack in Middleburg indicates that fishermen are catching specks along the shoreline cover of tributaries to the St. Johns, such as Black Creek. He says the water in the lower St. Johns is cooler than the local lakes; consequently, the speck spawn in those waters tends to be the last of the year. Having said that, Santa Fe, Newnans and even Orange Lake are giving up good Fins, Fur & Tails Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec not only organize shows. Murphys Law: Fish for a good cause numbers of spawning specks. Saltwater action on both coasts is giving up good inshore action. Joey Tyson says that Randy Harris can put you on the reds or trout anytime in the Steinhatchee area. On the east coast, black drum and sheepshead action is good around rocks and bridge pilings. The drum will hold in deeper water, however, than the sheepshead. Tight lines until next week.

trip resulted in a diagnosis that Ryan found hard to believe congestive heart failure. I said, My what? I almost started laughing, Ryan said, adding that he felt perfectly fine at that time. Ryan was transported from Starke to Gainesville, where he underwent more testing. He was told the congestive heart failure was due to a worsening of his cardiomyopathy. Barbara said she was amazed when she saw Ryans chest X-rays. I always said he had a big heart, Barbara said, referring to Ryans personality, but he literally has a huge heart. On the X-ray, the lungs were amazingly small looking to the human eye because the heart was so big. Ryan was set to undergo yet another surgery, this time a myectomy to actually trim the heart muscle so that its not blocking blood vessels. Ryan said his condition was comparable to someone with 40-50-percent blockage of the arteries. Part of the surgery would entail stopping Ryans heart and keeping him alive on a machine. He told the doctor who was to perform the surgery he wasnt too wild about that idea. He made me laugh, Ryan said. He said, Your heart has been working hard for 36 or 37 years. Why dont you let it rest for 45 minutes? I thought that was funny. The surgery was supposed to last three to four hours. It was actually 11 hours. Barbara said the support of family and friends was certainly a big help during that length of time, but it didnt ease the anxiety over why the surgery was taking so long. That experience is almost surreal, Barbara said. You have to remove yourself from your body. Maybe thats a coping skill that helps us to deal with the fear and the unknown outcome. I felt almost a numbness for those 11 hours. When one of the surgeons finally greeted the family in the waiting room, he said there was good news and bad news. The good news was that the surgery was a success. The bad news was that Ryans cardiomyopathy was the worst case he and the other surgeon had seen. The surgeon told the family the surgery had bought Ryan some time, but that he would probably need a heart transplant in the future. In the meantime, Ryans recovery was a bit rocky, though there was a silver lining to his ordeal. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 D.O.T Physicals must be done by a National Registry Certified Medical Examiner ALL of your Drug & Alcohol Testing needsCall Us TodayFLORIDA WORKPLACE SAFETY & TESTING (904)769-1738 THE OFFICE SHOP130 West Call St. Starke, FL 32091FAX(904)964-6905www.theofficeshopofstarke.com B ARGAIN B UYS PHONE(904)964-5764 REDDISH Continued from 1B Recovery and renewal He was anticipating a hospital stay of approximately five days. Instead, his stay lasted 51 days. For starters, Ryans chest could not be closed following the surgery because of swelling. His chest remained open for four days. Ryan said he didnt realize that was possible, but then again, he wasnt aware of any of it. Much of the time, of course, he was intubated, Barbara said. In the first few days following surgery, he was very medicated. We were just so distraught. The nurses assured us, He will not remember all of this. You will be the ones who will remember it. While he was in the hospital, Ryans sodium levels dropped to such low levels he was not even allowed to drink water. At one point, it appeared as if he was going to have to go on dialysis because his kidneys were failing. He also developed a blood clot in one of his legs as well as in his lungs. During that time, Ryan was receiving prayers from multiple churches. Barbara said people she didnt even know were praying for her son. Its at a time like this that you appreciate the fact you live in a small town, Barbara said. People rally behind you whenever you are in need. Ryan and his family will tell you his recovery is an example of Gods work. Take for example how Ryans kidneys were functioning normally the day after doctors had decided he was most likely going to have to start dialysis. The doctors couldnt explain the turnaround, Barbara said. Ryan said his faith strengthened after all he went through. He said he wasnt a heathen by any means, but admitted that his faith going into the surgery was more in the doctors abilities than it was in God. Ryan said he hardly prayed prior to the surgery. I didnt think about what was really important and what I should be thinking about, he said. Ryan said he had trouble breathing at one point during his hospital stay. He was convinced he had blood clots in his lungs or something that was causing him to labor so when taking a breath, but hospital staff seemed convinced he was having a panic attack. (It was discovered several days later that Ryan did have blood clots in his lungs.) At night, Ryan said he had a heart-to-heart talk with God. He admitted that he had a great life and that if he was to die that night, he would die a happy man. In fact, Ryan said he was almost convinced that he was going to die. He made it a point to call his wife just so he could tell her he loved her one last time. The following morning, Ryan woke up and felt fine. As the sun shone through the window, he whispered to himself over and over again, Praise God. Ryan said he was in no way the same kind of person as Charles Dickens Ebenezer Scrooge, but said he went through a similar transformation. He described that morning as the switch, which was the moment he said to himself that he was going to take a good life and make it even better. I feel like Ive been taught a lesson by Goddont be too cocky about things, Ryan said. Ive been humbled. I think it has definitely helped me in my faith. I feel like Im a better man because of it. Living life to the fullest Ryan may not be skydiving, mountain climbing, riding a bull or participating in any similar sort of dangerous endeavor, but he said he can relate to the Tim McGraw song Live Like You Were Dying. He feels like hes been given a second chance. Im not saying Im doing anything crazy, but Im going to be a lot happier about my life, Ryan said. I just appreciate things a lot more. I let go of things more. Im just glad Im here. Im glad I can walk. I can jump. I can runa little bit. I need to lose a few poundsIm the heaviest Ive ever beenbut I physically feel the best I have ever felt in my adult life. Why not enjoy life? Ryan said hes got everything he needs, including a family he loves very much. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two daughters: Alyssa (11) and Sabella (1). Plus, a son is due to arrive at the end of April. And what about that bad news that was delivered following Ryans surgery? Ryan said he hasnt given much thought to the possibility of needing a heart transplant. He said hes been told that could be 15-20 years away. Ryan feels too good right now to be concerned. Plus, he considers himself blessed, no matter what hes gone through and what his future holds. Whenever you feel sorry for yourself, you can look around, and I guarantee you will find somebody way worse off than you are, Ryan said. As Ryan put it, Gods been too good to me. That attitude cant help but affect those who know Ryan. He has been a blessing to me, to my family and to everyone who knows him, Barbara said. He has inspired me. Ryan Reddish is pictured with his family: wife, Jennifer, 1-year-old daughter Sabella and 11-yearold daughter Alyssa. Ryan and Jennifer are expecting a son, whose due date is April 29.
