CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The ongoing disagreement between Starke and Bradford County over the cost of services like animal control has only fueled city questions about what the county owes its citizens, and the city commission now has a recommendation from its attorney that it pursue a portion of the countys tax revenue. Attorney Paul Sanders said it would take a lot of work to get the necessary financial data together, but once done, the city could seek to recoup the tax revenue collected by the county that currently benefits county residents but not the citizens of Starke. An obvious example would be animal control. The county ceased providing animal control to the city when the city commission refused to pay a portion of the countys animal control budget. According to the city, Starke citizens already pay for that service through county taxation. Furthermore, the city commission hasnt authorized the county to collect any kind of special assessment or surcharge for animal control services from city residents (although city residents dropping off animals at the animal control facility are reportedly being asked to pay a $25 fee). But Sanders said the city should look at all services, including fire departments, law enforcement and streets. If citizens are paying taxes they are not receiving benefits from, in part because the city may already be providing those services, then he said the city could ask for that money. Alternatively the county could be compelled to establish new taxes, special assessments or service charges that would be levied on unincorporated residents alone so that countywide revenue is not being used to fund services that benefit some but not others. Sanders developed his legal opinion based on past litigation by cities in other counties. The city commission will hold a workshop to discuss the matter at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4, prior to its next regularly scheduled meeting. Brooker may get EMS stationBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The town of Brooker could be home to a new county emergency medical services station, according to EMS Director Allen Parrish. Parrish told the county commission Feb. 20 that he is in the process of preparing a grant application that would cover most of the cost of setting up a station in the southwestern part of the county. Parrish was still working on the grant application and didnt have firm numbers about response time and call load for the Brooker area. Brooker is around 17 miles from Starke, an approximately 21 minute drive. Commissioner Eddie Lewis said hes been trying to get a station in the Brooker area ever since hes been on the board, and said he would appreciate the support of the rest of the commission. Building an EMS station is one thing, staffing it another. Parrish said one of Starkes two trucks would move to Brooker. Most of the countys units are concentrated in the central or eastern part of the county, he said. We really need to do something for the southwest end, and I think that would be a tremendous help, Parrish said. In addition to Starke, EMS units are housed in Lawtey and Theressa. The commission granted permission to apply for the EMS grant. The county would be required to match the grant with 10 to 25 percent of the total project cost.Projects could cause road maintenance delaysTheres good news and bad news regarding some road projects the county is undertaking. The projects will address road improvement and drainage problems on Northwest 38th Avenue (between Northwest C.R. 125 and C.R. 225) and Southeast 81st Street in Theressa. Unfortunately, they could also negatively impact the countys normal road maintenance schedule. According to County Manager Brad Carter, the county sought FEMA funding to pay for the projects, but the grants did not amount to enough to hire an outside contractor to perform the work. Road Superintendent Paul Funderburk said each project Residents removed from home in Hampton BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Residents of Sunrise Home Care Services in Hampton were removed this week following revelations that the facility was unsafe. The county revoked Sunrises certificate of occupancy for fire safety violations, and it was also revealed that the state agency that licenses the facility has fined the operator for failing to adequately care for residents needs. The state confirmed a moratorium on new admissions has been issued. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration found operations and maintenance violations that directly threatened the physical or emotional health, safety or security of the residents, according to an administrative order posted on Feb. 21. Sunrise was fined $1,500 for violations of resident care rights and facility procedures, $2,000 for violations of food service standards and $2,000 for failure to provide a safe living environment. A complaint survey of the 28-bed facility was conducted in April 2013. According to the administrative order: Based on interview, observation, and record review, facility failed to ensure every resident of the facility had the right to live in a safe and decent living environment; be treated with consideration and respect and with due recognition of personal dignity and individuality; and manage his or her financial affairs. The administrator, Reynaldo Young, had an opportunity to request a hearing on the administrative complaint, which was delivered to the facility in January. He did not do so, and so the final order was completed last week. At the same time, Fire Marshal Chip Ware inspected Sunrise this month and found reasons to revoke the occupational license, so all 18 residents were relocated Monday. During the states review, surveyors found the administrator failed to be responsible for food services and the day-to-day supervision of food services staff, failed to ensure staff performed duties in a safe and sanitary manner, and failed to provide regular meals meeting nutritional standards. The meal observed consisted of one baked chicken drumstick, one scoop of diced beets, one scoop of mixed vegetables, one scoop of applesauce and one slice of plain white bread. Residents also had a cup of red liquid to drink. They did not have condiments like butter, salt or pepper, or alternative drinks like juice, milk or water. The menu was set, and residents were not offered options. The residents were not allowed to eat with forks or knives, either, so they struggled to eat the chicken with a spoon or with their fingers. Residents were also observed busing their own tables, and the caregiver did not change gloves between handling clean or dirty trays. Several residents requested second helpings, but the kitchen was out of chicken and other sides. Those residents complained that they were still hungry and that the kitchen was always running out of food. One resident who stood up during lunch and repeatedly said they didnt want it was not offered an alternative. The resident was taken away to be changed after their incontinence issues were spoken about openly in front of the other residents. During a snack time, residents were observed eating peanut butter on bread or a pop tart and a cup of 2 percent milk. Again, they were not given a choice. One resident interviewed said she had lost 45 pounds in a little more than three months time since coming to live at Sunrise. Multiple residents said they were never told they could have something other than what was on the menu. That menu was not even viewable by residents, who were not allowed in the kitchen where it was posted. When the administrator was interviewed, he said there were meal alternatives like peanut butter sandwiches, canned soup or ravioli, but the residents were not told about them. Only canned soup or vegetables were available because fresh produce was said to be too expensive, and residents were only allowed dry bread without butter or margarine because they needed to watch their cholesterol. Asked about dish washing procedures, the administrator said water temperature was not verified and the ratio of bleach to water was merely estimated. Asked about the interviewed residents weight loss, the administrator and supervisor said she needed to lose weight, but also had to admit there was no medical order for weight loss or a dietician approved weight loss plan.Sun sets at Sunrise Sunrise is located on C.R. 325 (Prospect Avenue) in Hampton.

Before teaching in Bradford, Harris held positions in Georgia, Alabama and elsewhere in Florida, teaching social studies, physical education and even drivers education. He was also a coach for football, tennis and basketball, and a Junior Beta Club sponsor. He made another indelible mark, though, bringing the junior-senior prom back to Apalachicola High after a more than 10-year absence. His 35-year career at Bradford High began when he arrived in 1978, teaching social studies and serving as the assistant junior varsity football coach and wrestling coach. While that was his final year coaching football, Harris continued with the wrestling team for two more years, coaching nine district champions and three state finalistssecond-, thirdand fourth-placers. He hosted a topquality wrestling clinic and the district tournament at BHS in the 1979-80 season. From 1981-85, Harris turned his attention to the student council. During his sponsorship, the council was revamped completely, transforming it from a social club to a real student government with a voter registration program and a student-approved constitution. For the first time, student government ran all homecoming activities (taking over from the administration), and it ran the schoolwide activities program, which included regular awards assemblies, fundraisers and season-end ice cream socials for all the interscholastic teams. They even set up an activity planning guidebook for future councils to follow. In its first year, the governments fundraising efforts earned more than $14,000, Harris said. The student council reached beyond the school as well to communicate with elected officials about the educational issues of concern to students. Im proud that by acting like a true student government, with awards assemblies run by the student council, we were developing real student leaders and leaders for the future, Harris said.   Beginning in the mid 1980s and over the next decade or so, he worked with and then sponsored and coordinated an international exchange program between Bradford High and the VilleGymnasium, Erftstadt, Germany. There were three student trips to Germany, in 1988, 1990 and 1995, and Harris directed the last two. Then, while German students stayed in the states, trips were planned to Disney World, Tallahassee, Cape Canaveral and other spots. Not only did students and teachers have the opportunity to see other countries, but many of us have developed lasting friendships and relationships with our German friends, he said.   Harris worked to expand student horizons in other ways, sponsoring and planning two senior class trips to Washington, D.C., in 1991 and 1992. In addition to the historic sites, students also met with the areas representative at the time, Congressman Cliff Stearns. In the spring of 1992, he sponsored the Bradford County Jefferson Meeting on the Constitution, which brought together college professors of history, government and law from the University of Florida, University of North Florida, Santa Fe Community College, Jacksonville University and Florida State University with local social studies teachers, civic, political and business leaders, and senior student government and economics students for a two-day seminar to discuss significant issues surrounding the U.S. Constitution. I still believe that was the finest out-of-the-classroom educational program ever offered students in the 35 years Ive been in Bradford County, Harris said. From 2001-2009, he coached the BHS academic team. The school hosted several district and conference tournaments, with varsity and junior varsity teams winning several tournaments and trophies. In 2008-09, he said BHS made it to the finals of the Commissioners Academic Challenge and the State Academic Challenge.   In the classroom, Harris taught a variety of social studies courses, but primarily government, economics and American history. The excellence he demanded of students, he also demanded of himself, and he participated in seminars and workshops locally and around the country, including Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco, Charleston and Washington, D.C. Superintendent of Schools Chad Farnsworth had this to say about Harris and his years with the district: I would like to congratulate Mr. Harris on his recent retirement. Through the years he served the district in a variety of ways. He made a true impact on the lives of his students inside and outside of the classroom. Whether it was challenging his students in his government class or leading the academic team to success, he never accepted anything other than the best from Bradford students. On behalf of the Bradford County School District we wish Mr. Harris an enjoyable retirement and success in all of his future endeavors. www.facebook.com/BradfordTelegraph Brittney Hall advances toward River Jam Crewsn Myles wins band competitionThree winners were chosen Feb. 15 at the Fiddler Crab Festival in Steinhatchee in the annual Suwannee River Jam Auditions.

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Master Gardener Laurie Compton at lcompton@ufl.edu.Lauries planting suggestions for MarchAlthough dianthus and other cool-season annuals will continue to flourish, start planting warm season annuals such as angelonia, wax begonia and zinnia at the end of the month. Plant dahlia, canna and gloriosa bulbs in beds that have been amended with organic matter. Provide stakes as needed to support growth. Herbs: When temperatures warm, consider growing edible ginger. Plant a rhizome in well-drained soil in full to part sun. Plant warm season vegetables such as bean, tomato, squash and corn early in the month for a late spring harvest. You will have to protect from frost!Things to doIf azaleas need hard pruning to shape or produce a fuller plant, do it just after plants finish blooming. Pruning after the last flowers fade but before new buds set protects the next seasons bloom. Prune shrubs and trees when new growth begins and the end of the dormant season. Identify and conserve beneficial insects: Some insects should be encouraged in your yard! Fertilize palms, azaleas, camellias and other ornamental shrubs if needed. Choose a fertilizer that has at least 30 percent of its nitrogen as slow release. There are specialty fertilizers available for acid loving plants like blueberry and azalea. Palms requires specially formulated fertilizers, too. Irrigation: Now is the time to check sprinkler systems for issues such as broken heads or inefficient spray patterns. Wildlife activity in MarchSummer tanagers and great-crested flycatchers arrive to breed. Listen for newly returned chuck-wills-widows calling after sunset. Plant columbine, coral bean and other wildflowers to attract hummingbirds. Wild turkey and quail begin breeding in central and north Florida. Snakes become active and move to favorite feeding areas. Largemouth bass spawning throughout central and north Florida. Spring turkey hunters take to the field. Chickasaw plum and crab apples bloom in north Florida. Did you know?Coral bean is a native plant with red tubular flowers that grow on tall stalks in the spring, drawing hummingbirds and butterflies. In the fall, as the rest of the summer garden fades, coral beans seedpods begin to mature and the show begins. What once looked a bit like English pea pods turn dark, almost black, and split open to reveal shiny, scarlet red seeds inside. Theyre very prettyand very poisonous, so be sure to keep them away from kids and pets. Source: http://bit.ly/1gxicr4. Laurie Compton School Teacher Tamala Delashmet.

They are not faceless children. They are children you see in your neighborhoods, in malls, in classes with your children, and even in your churches. They come from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. The common thread is that their families have failed to keep them safe. They often have PTSD because of the traumas they have seen and felt. But even with horrible and difficult home situations, they almost always love their parents. So when they are taken away in the dead of night from all that they know and love, however bad, their worlds are turned upside down, leaving them scared and feeling alone. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are appointed by the court to be the voice of these children, but they do so much more. They nurture them and make sure they are safe. Training is free, and the next class starts March 3.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 Trailers at Sunrise Home Care Services. Another resident also expressed concern about his weight loss, but observed weight loss was never addressed with the nurse practitioner who visited the facility. Residents didnt just complain about their involuntary diets. Some also complained about the early bedtime of 7 p.m., with one saying she would just lie there and watch the moon until she finally fell asleep. The same resident, who had to leave the main building to get to her room, said when it rained she would get wet and dirty. The area in front of the ramp became flooded and muddy and she had to walk through it with her walker. She complained of the lack of freedom and inability to go for walks because there was only dirt or mud surrounding the facility. The resident also received a $500 check from a prior facility she lived at, and it was signed so the administrator could cash it, but it had not been cashed at the time of the review and she had not received any of the money. The same was true of checks for four other residents, and one had already moved away. The administrator said he had the checks, although he couldnt remember when he received them, and he was trying to cash the checks, but had yet to do so. He also received residents Social Security checks, but did not provide them statements. He deposited the checks for them, giving each $54, but did not get receipts from them as proof of receiving the cash. Surveyors also noted that residents requiring home health care were not given a choice of provider, and a caregiver and supervisor were written up for not calling residents by their name, but instead calling them honey or baby. Observation found exposure to dirty and torn furniture; tripping and wheel chair hazards; dirty carpets, mattresses and pillows; exposed wiring on an electric cord; a nonoperational exit alarm and one exit that wouldnt open at all; no paper towels in the womens restroom; unsanitary conditions in the mens restroom; missing soap and towels in private bathrooms; shared doors between bathrooms; missing light bulbs; a dirty garbage can in the dining room and a laundry room in disrepair; tree branches, debris and tall grass in the yard; and dirty kitchens, bathrooms and other conditions in the occupied trailers, including clutter, bugs and missing bulbs. One resident said he had lived in one of the trailers for five years. Cleaning services were provided, he said, but they never gave him soap to wash his hands. It wasnt the issues found during the state survey that led to the shutdown, however. On Feb. 12, the county fire inspector was on site to conduct a water supply test of the fire sprinkler system. While there, he noticed the range top fire suppression system was missing. (The facility was required to install it following a fire safety inspection in March 2011. An inspection nearly a year later found that it had been installed.) Ware met with Young and a representative from the Agency for Health Care Administration on Feb. 18 to explain Youngs responsibilities. During that discussion, they talked about the fire control panel, which was reportedly damaged by a lightning strike, but had yet to be prepared. Ware also informed Young there would be a spot check of fire protection devices, during which he found water had been turned off to the fire sprinkler system in one trailer. That system and the system in another trailer were found to be in disrepair with accumulated scale, rust, dirt and algae on the pipes. Ware also noted exposed wiring in the main building, laundry area and nonfunctional emergency lights. Perhaps most damning, however, was the observation of a fire drill during which residents with wheelchairs and walkers encountered obstacles including grass, mud, standing water and uneven terrain while trying to evacuate the facility. It took nearly a quarter of an hour to get everyone out. It was on Wares recommendation that the certificate of occupancy was revoked. In 2011, the Agency for Health Care Administration entered a settlement with Young over a prior denial of a license to operate the facility for failing to meet minimum licensure standards and a pattern of deficient performance. Young challenged the denial and the agency eventually settled with him. A spokesperson for the Agency for Health Care Administration confirmed that residents were removed from Sunrise, and that while the facilitys license was still active, that could change pending further review of the fire marshals report. No further admissions to the facility were being allowed. Young did not respond to a call for comment. SUNRISEContinued from 1A A copy of Sanders document was provided to the county attorneys office for comment, but there was no response as of press time. The city and county commissions have each approved competing versions of an interlocal agreement for certain services, but they havent been able to agree on identical language. Neither of the recent agreements mention of animal control. In other business: Police Chief Jeff Johnson talked the commission into approving the purchase of six new police vehicles, saying his budget would otherwise continue to be eaten up by maintenance costs. Financed, the annual cost will amount to $35,000 to $37,000 a year for four years, according to Johnson. It will be paid out of the departments budget for repairs. One of the new vehicles will remain unmarked and driven by the chief, although it would also be available to employees like the project manager when needed. Commissioner Tommy Chastain didnt want to see the new vehicles driven by administrators, but by officers on patrol. He further suggested the new vehicles be parked when not being used on duty instead of being driven to homes outside the city limits. Of his 19-vehicle fleet, four were out of service, but Johnson said that instead of trying to sell the older cars, he wanted to hold onto them for parts. The cars are being purchased for the state contract price of $21,200 plus the cost of accessories. They are Dodge Chargers, Johnson said, because some of his larger officers have difficulty fitting in the Ford Interceptors. They are also more affordable, he said. parking ordinance amendments are being prepared that would allow the city to tow repeat violators of the downtown parking limits. The owner of a towed vehicle would have to pay the accumulated fines in order to get his ride back.   the citys budget was amended to pay help pay for the cost of a new finance department employee, a part-time senior accountant. This included cutting funds budgeted for retirement contributions for Finance Director Alica McMillian, who is in the DROP program, and the former clerk. parking ordinance amendments are being prepared that would allow the city to tow repeat violators of the downtown parking limits. The owner of a towed vehicle would have to pay the accumulated fines in order to get his ride back. a meter reading bid from GRU was rejected, and the city will continue reading meters itself, hiring a new employee to replace a retiree. It was confirmed all meters, including inactive meters, would be read as a precaution against utility theft. the finishing touches are being placed on the citys online bill payment system. City Clerk Ricky Thompson is bidding out all city services, with the exception of the attorney, who was recently hired.BATTLEContinued from 1A would require a minimum of three road department employees, sometimes as many as five, and multiple pieces of county equipment. The 38th Avenue project is estimated to take four weeks to complete, and the Theressa project eight weeks. During that time, it is possible the countys routine maintenance schedule could get behind. County sharing Keystones equipmentThe county commission has entered an agreement with the Keystone Heights Volunteer Fire Department to share equipment. That department has been sidelined since a falling out with Clay County, and attempts to become affiliated with the city of Keystone and Bradford County were rejected. But now Bradford has found a way to use the departments resources when needed, as well as its volunteer power. When repairs or some other emergency has created a need for supplemental vehicles or equipment, Bradford will call on the Keystone area department to lend what is needed. The county will try to ensure that a member of that fire department is present on any call during which any of its equipment is being used. The fire department will keep its vehicles and equipment insured and will provide workers compensation coverage for its volunteers. If an injury occurs during a Bradford County call, however, the county will cover any out-of-pocket expenses not covered by insurance. Emergency Management Director Brian Johns presented the agreement to the board, saying a tanker with a radiator leak would take a couple of weeks to repair. During that time, Bradford will have access to KHVFDs truck. He said a similar sharing agreement exist with Union County for ambulances and EMS equipment. The agreement was unanimously approved. In other business: the commission held a hearing and granted a special use permit so Verizon Wireless could place a new telecommunications tower off of Southwest C.R. 18 near Brooker. The site is 62-plus acres owned by Betty Ann and Edwin Prevatt, just outside of the town. Verizon will be leasing a 100 square-foot area for the construction of the 250-foot tower. The hearing was quick and painless for Verizons representatives, as most of the request was covered by Zoning Director Randy Andrews. There is a possibility that public safety communications will benefit if the sheriffs office is allowed to locate an antenna on the tower, saving the county from the cost of erecting its own tower. Commissioner Lewis said mobile phone service is poor in the Brooker area, and James Johnston of Shutts and Bowen said the proposed tower would be a remedy for that. COUNTYContinued from 1A The Suwannee River Water Management District Governing Board authorized the district to purchase a 340-acre tract in Bradford County for use of flood control and water resource projects. The property will be purchased from Bradford Timberlands LLC. The property is adjacent to Camp Blanding. The purchase will be funded by a grant from the Florida National Guard through the Department of Defense as part of a program designed to secure buffers around military installations. The district will use the property to store water to help prevent downstream flooding and to ultimately implement a regional Floridan Aquifer recharge project. The District will capture floodwaters to recharge the aquifer. Recharging the aquifer in this location will benefit aquifer levels in both the Suwannee River and St. Johns River water management districts. This unique land purchase is ideally located to serve as a buffer to Camp Blanding while presenting an opportunity to provide flood protection and implement a water resource development project benefiting aquifer levels in both the Suwannee River and St. Johns River water management districts, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. This acquisition provides an opportunity to implement projects that will increase recharge, help manage the regions water resources, and potentially benefit natural systems in both districts, said St. Johns District Executive Director Hans G. Tanzler III. Land purchases to help recharge the Floridan Aquifer benefit many area waterways including the Santa Fe River and the Santa Fe and Little Santa Fe lakes in the Suwannee River Water Management District and the Keystone area lakes in the St. Johns River Water Management District, said Drew Bartlett, DEP deputy secretary for water policy and ecosystem restoration. I commend the districts decision to buy smart land that has clear benefits to our water resources. Rayonier supporting departmentsRayonier Inc. has contributed $17,000 to local volunteer fire departments across Florida and Georgia to recognize their vital services battling wildfires on Rayonier property and in surrounding areas. Volunteer firefighters play an essential role in protecting property in the rural communities where we operate. These individuals donate their time to ensure their communities are safe. We appreciate their generous commitment to helping others, said John Enlow, Rayoniers forest resources director for Atlantic and northern regions. We are proud to work alongside these volunteers when wildfires cross Rayonier property. Rayonier made the donations to volunteer fire departments in Nassau and Bradford counties in Florida as well as departments in Brantley, Bryan, Clinch, Cook, Charlton and Ware counties in Georgia. The company presented these donations to the departments in November, December and January. The company has 2.6 million acres of timberland in 10 states and New Zealand, with 416,480 acres in Florida and 690,955 acres in Georgia. While Rayonier is one of the few in the timber industry with an in-house wildfire prevention and suppression unit, local fire departments assist in fighting wildfires that occur on the companys land. Diabetes a growing concernCrisis and epidemic are words commonly associated the growth of diabetes in the United States, according to Winifred Holland at the Clay County Department of Health. It is predicted that without improvements in eating habits and levels of physical activity one-third of the population will soon be diabetic. Diabetes significantly contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, blindness and amputations. A person with diabetes is more likely to experience a premature death and is twice as likely to die on any given day. Slight changes in lifestyle can reduce the risk of acquiring diabetes or suffering the complications of diabetes. A 5 to 7 percent reduction of body weight and weekly moderate physical activity can reduce your risk. Disability and premature death do not need to be inevitable consequences of diabetes. Physical activity, dietary changes, self-management training, ongoing support and, when necessary, medications can help control the effects of diabetes. Approximately 7 million Americans have undiagnosed diabetes. Everyone is encouraged to communicate with their primary care provider regarding their diabetes risk. Small changes can ensure a healthier future. Diabetes Risk Factors 45 years of age or older.   Overweight. Have a parent with diabetes. Have a sister or brother with diabetes. Background is AfricanAmerican, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, AsianAmerican or Pacific Islander. Developed diabetes while pregnant (gestational diabetes), or gave birth to a baby weighing 9 pounds or more. Physically active less than three times a week. If you have two or more of the risk factors above, you should consider getting a blood test from a health care provider for diabetes.

BHS chemistry teacher Chelsea George said schools ideally take 15 students to the Olympiad to compete in events designed for two-student teams. The Friday before the event, George said she had six students who were going to compete. However, one backed out of the event, two got sick and another two got lost on the way to the event. That left Shuman, who was allowed to compete on his own. He was very nervous, George said. Despite that, Shuman, a sophomore, earned a secondplace finish in the anatomy and physiology event, while placing third in five other events: designer genes, rocks and minerals, technical problem solving, circuit lab and dynamic planet. The regional event was made up of teams from Union and Dixie County high schools (Union placed first) and also featured two Leon County BHS student competes in Science middle school teams. This is Bradford High Schools first participation in a Science Olympiad. George is excited about getting BHS more involved, saying the Olympiad gets students to think outside of the box, as well as giving them a different set of experiences. With the Olympiad, they get exposed to a lot more stuff they may not necessarily see at Bradford, George said. The state-level Olympiad will be held at the University of Central Florida on March 15. Georges goal is to take a full team. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School senior Madison Colaw signed a letter of intent on Feb. 25 to play soccer at Lakelands Florida Southern College. Colaw, a forward/midfielder, said thankful best described her feelings. Thankful and humble because I feel like God has blessed me with so many opportunities, she said. She also expressed a tremendous appreciation for her parents, James and Robin Colaw. I dont think a lot of people understand how much theyve had to sacrifice financially and just driving so long for tournaments every weekend, Colaw said. Colaw, who has played at KHHS since the seventh grade, said she was also excited about the future and what was in store for her at Florida Southern. She said when she first began considering colleges, she thought of big schools like the University of Florida. However, being a dual-enrolled student at Santa Fe College gave Colaw an appreciation for smaller classroom sizes. Colaw, who wants to become a pediatric oncologist, said she loves the academic program at Florida Southern, but said soccer coach Brittany Jones is a big draw as well. I think the coach really stood out, she said. That was a big part of my decision because she seems like she really wants to get to know the girls and connect with them. Former KHHS soccer coach David McCollum said Colaw, who has played premier club level ball since the age of 13, brings great skills to the field as well as the ability to put the team first. Shes just a great player and just a great person all around, McCollum said. Shes always supportive of her teammates. She was never one to put anybody down. It was always for the team. I guess I appreciated that more than anything. McCollum said another attribute of Colaws is her understanding of the game. She sees all of the field, and she understands the schematic as to how each player has specific responsibilities, McCollum said. She really took that in. Current KHHS coach Kenny Seneca said Colaw proved to be a good leader and was certainly missed when she wasnt on the field. She made her teammates so much better, Seneca said. She can draw the defense and dish the ball off. She can score goals, but she can also just make everybody around her better. Despite missing approximately 10 games this past season while recovering from an injury, Colaw still scored 24 goals, while dishing out 15 assists. It takes a lot to keep Colaw off the field.Keystones Colaw to play soccer at Florida Southern College2011 to 2013, with a record of more than $72,000 in donations being recorded during that span. Overstreet is now a Relay for Life team retention and monitoring chair until 2015. Overstreet is the current first vice president of Altrusa of Starke and is serving her second year as president of the Bradford County Educational Foundation.

Dear Editor: On (Feb. 13), as I sat under the hair dryer correcting my gray challenged hair, I looked across the room and I could see two ladies facing each other talking. Over the roar of my hair dryer, I couldnt hear what they were saying and could only imagine. You might ask what did these ladies have in common. Well within just a few days of each other they both lost their spouses. And who were these two ladies; Sherry Strickland and Sharon Jones. But in reality their husbands led very similar lives; both were long time business owners. One was the owner of Leonards Outboard Shop here in Keystone and the other in Jacksonville, Economy Printing. Leonard repaired the motors and Bobby loved fishing. Their word and handshake meant more than any signed contract. Both served our country in the United States Navy. While in my eyes that certainly makes them heroes, but they are what I call everyday life heroes. They got up each morning went to work, paid their bills, loved their families, served their community, supported the schools, and held integrity to the highest level. When they were around people felt secure and safe. Sherry and Sharon must have had a lot to share and I am glad that these two gentlemen shared their lives with my family and the entire Keystone Community. Rest in Peace Bobby Strickland and Leonard Jones. Sincerely, Tina Bullock 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thu rsday, Feb. 27, 2014 Armbands on Sale Now!Save Now, Dont Wait!

Explain to us how five people put in for the appointment for the Sheriffs position, four have more experience, and the one with the least amount of experience gets the interview, and also the Appointment. Furthermore what good is the Undersheriff when he cant even carry out the duties of being sheriff when the unthinkable happens? Thats not saying much for our county. This is not a family business and there has to be a change. When you apply for a job, all qualified applicants usually get an interview and then the decision is made on the position, but in our case it was not like that. We the citizens of Union County have a choice to make this election and we think the decision is clear, Change is for the better. Concerned citizens of Union CountyCitizens want to be heard in regard to UC Dear Editor: Mr. Buster Rahns editorial Capital Punishment in Florida: time for a new look? in your 2/20/14 edition was much appreciated by me and, perhaps, others who are struggling with this emotional question The States responsibility is to provide security for society but does it have to kill its inmates to protect its citizens from convicted, first degree murderers? Most penal authorities agree that this security can be assured when a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole is given. Thus the question, Why does the State kill individuals? And further, How does the State promote a reduction in senseless killings among its citizens when it kills its prisoners even though a non-killing option is available! As one who has been present in the designated Protest area across the road from the death chamber on S.R. 16 for many executions, I have never been there three times in just two months. If Gov. Scott continues this pace, there will be 18 executions in 2014 the most since capital punishment was re-instituted in 1979. Our nation and the civilized world is moving away from the death penalty as Florida is going in the opposite direction. I have a sick feeling in my Florida moving in opposite direction in regard to death penaltystomach that this dramatic acceleration in state-sponsored killings is a part of Gov. Scotts re-election strategy. If so, this is not only morally and ethically reprehensible but, also politically short-sighted in my view. Mr. Rahns closing thoughts in his perceptive editorial suggests that Floridians may be considering another way. 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. John X. Linnehan HamptonRemembering everyday life heroesDear Editor: The botched rollout of the Health Insurance Marketplace last October per provision of Expand Medicaid as called for by Affordable Care Actthe Affordable Care Act added momentum to Republican attacks against Obamacare.   Mind you, the Republican Party has been trying to dismantle or defund the Affordable Care Act from the time it was signed into law by President Obama in 2010.   I think the Republicans have been largely successful in creating distrust so much so that many have probably forgotten that the American people have long been asking for health care reform.   When President Obama was elected in 2008, 49 million U. S. residents had no health insurance. The United States is the only industrialized nation that does not guarantee access to health care for all their citizens.   45,000 uninsured Americans die every year for lack of medical treatment.   Medical bills are a leading cause of bankruptcy in the U.S.   Surprisingly, most of medical bankruptcy filers are from the middle class.   The Affordable Care Act was a political compromise to change some of the shortcomings of our health care system but without dethroning the powerful forprofit health care industry. The law does not regulate, or place caps on, health insurance premiums, medical treatment costs, or prices of prescription drugs.   Supposedly competition in the market will drive down those costs.   I believe, on the other hand, that we will not see reasonable health care costs because capitalistic greed will continue to find ways to make their profits.     The Affordable Care Act provides subsidy in the form of advanced premium tax credit for insurance purchase on the Health Insurance Marketplace.   However said subsidy is available ONLY to people with income ABOVE 100 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.   The Affordable Care Act intended to provide health insurance to people BELOW the Poverty Level through expansion of the Medicaid program.   The federal government will pay 100 percent of the cost of Medicaid expansion for the first three years, and 90 percent thereafter.      Heres the rub.   The Medicaid program is administered by each individual state although funding comes from both federal and state funds.   In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of most of Obamacare but ruled that the federal government could not require states to expand their Medicaid program.   Instead, individual states could choose whether or not to expand Medicaid in their state.   Nearly 4 million Floridians have no health insurance.   Medicaid expansion will provide health coverage to 1.2 million low-income Floridians who do not earn enough to qualify for premium tax credit but are too poor to afford insurance without financial help. The Florida Senate passed a Medicaid expansion plan in the 2013 legislative session.   However the bill died in the Florida House of Representatives on the pretext that our Republican legislators doubted the ability of the federal government to finance Medicaid expansion. It is my opinion that the decision by our Florida Legislature to opt out of Medicaid expansion is politically driven and certainly not in the interest of the people.   Florida has the second highest percentage of uninsured in the U.S.   If Florida were to expand the Medicaid program, our state can gain 50 billion dollars in additional revenue for the next ten years.   Such revenue would be an economic boost to Florida.   At the same time, Medicaid expansion will benefit individuals and families living at and below the poverty level.   By opting out of   Medicaid expansion, Florida legislators are choosing to deny care to the neediest of the needy.   It should be pointed out that, in anticipation of Medicaid expansion, the Affordable Care Act drastically reduces funding for hospitals mandated to provide uncompensated emergency room care, again penalizing   uninsured Floridians. To bring the issue closer to home, allow me to share statistics who could be our relatives, or friends, or neighbors, or simply persons we have encountered in our community.   According to the 2010 census, 16 percent of Bradford residents live in poverty.   This figure is higher than the statistic for Florida in general (15.6 percent) and significantly higher than the statistic for the U.S. (14.9 percent).   Bradford County is predominantly white.   The median age of Bradford County residents is 39.5 years.   To me, it means that, under present circumstances, many of the   u ninsured in our county will likely remain uninsured for a long time. The next regular Florida legislative session will start on March 4, 2014 and will continue for 60 days until May 2, 2014.   I urge Floridians to tell Florida Legislature to expand the Medicaid program as provided by the Affordable Care Act so that low-income Floridians, the neediest of the needy, can gain access to health care.   Some readers may be interested to know that the law does not provide health coverage to illegal immigrants. A group in Gainesville called Just Health Care is circulating a petition for the expansion of Medicaid in Florida without privatization.   The organization believes that access to health care should be considered a human right and should be available to   ALL citizens.   The petition is available at www. justhealthcareflorida.org. We tell the world that America is a Christian nation and we take pride in our Christian values.   In the eyes of the Lord, there are no Republicans or Democrats, the poor are just as worthy as the rich, we are all His children.   Christian values preach love and charity.   He who has pity on the poor lends to the LORD, and He will pay back what he has given. (Proverbs 19:17)   Isnt it right and just to practice our faith?   And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Matthew 25:40)   Mrs. Fe Ripka Hampton

to do a variety of standing poses. Yogastretch Classes are led by Ben Bridgman, a certified group fitness instructor who is also certified by the Silver Sneakers program. I really enjoy working with senior adults, many of whom have never had a fitness regimen before they became active with Silver Sneakers, Bridgman said. There are Silver Sneakers classes especially for cardio fitness and weightlifting, but Yogastretch is different. Participants may feel that there isnt any benefit to a class where they dont break a sweat, but all they need to do is try it. They always leave feeling better, more flexible and more relaxed after the session. Bridgman also teaches a combination yoga/Pilates stretch class following his popular indoor cycle classes at the Bradford Union Technical Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Indoor cycle classes start at 5:15 p.m. and typically last an hour. Following that, cyclers are ready to stretch and tone their muscles. Its really the best thing to do after an hour on a stationary bike, which can cause muscles especially the large muscles of the legsto become shortened and tight, Bridgman said. The Pilates work emphasizes strengthening the core muscles, such as the abdominals and back muscles, but the yoga work really helps increase flexibility and decrease muscle tightness. We do a few minutes of relaxation at the end, and I am constantly amazed at how effective it is. You wouldnt think lying on a thin yoga mat on a hard tile floor would be relaxing, but it is. People dont want to get up, mainly because its the only time they allow themselves to be completely relaxed. Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese exercise practiced in slow motion for relaxation, vitality, health and grace. Described paradoxically as a non-aggressive martial art, it is based on yielding and awareness rather than force and resistance. Tai Chi takes seven to 10 minutes to practice, requires no special equipment except flat shoes and open space, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Starke does not currently have live Tai Chi instruction, although Bridgman has been studying the martial art for several years and hopes to be able to add it to his offerings. The Bradford Senior Center offers DVD Tai Chi training in combination with its chair yoga classes. If youre willing to travel to Gainesville, there are plenty of options for in-person Tai Chi training.

He started to get results through the practice of Tai Chi and meditation, realizing what was generating the fear in my mind was ignorance, not understanding how to work with the mind, how to process the existing fear and how to awaken the natural human state that is fearless. Finding both religious dogma and exclusively rational approaches to living lacking because they failed to satisfactorily address ethical principals for decisions as well as mans profound spiritual nature, Campbell found a home at the Shr Jung Tai Chi School in New York Citys Chinatown section, studying under the legendary Cheng Man-ching. Cheng, who died in 1975, was known for Tai Chi Chuan and his Yang-style short form, which is composed of 37 movements that take less than 10 minutes to practice instead of the 20 to 30 minutes required by the Yang long form. Campbell also had the benefit of the teachings of Oscar Ichazo, the Bolivian-born founder of the Arica School, a human potential movement group that teaches a body of techniques for inherent consciousness-raising and an ideology to relate to the world in an awakened way. Ichazo eventually introduced his school to Chengs school. Anthony Korahais, like Campbell, was attracted to the spiritual, healing aspects of Tai Chi, which he hadnt found in other martial arts such as karate and kung fu. He began his Tai Chi journey, also in New York City, as a result of an inner struggle, specifically a debilitating case of clinical depression. He recalled living with a fog of despair that returned each morning, engulfing him in darkness. Through the study of Qigonga practice of aligning breath, movement and awareness for exercise, healing and meditationas well as Tai Chi, he found relief. In Malaysia, studying with Grandmaster Wong, Korahais learned that when human energy systems Sixth St., Suite 220 (352-3713718). Anthony Korahais directs the Flowing Zen Studio at 5127 N.W. 39th Ave. (352-672-7613, flowingzen.com.) Campbell, who teaches 10 classes a week, often starts students with a course called the Eight Ways of Tai Chi Chuan, a gentle exercise program developed especially for elderly people, although it is appropriate for anyone who would like an introduction to Tai Chi. Unlike exercises which use exertion and stress to build muscular strength, the Eight Ways uses gentle, flowing movements to relax and loosen the body and the joints, to stimulate circulation, to build stability in the legs and feet, and to develop an awareness of ones internal strength. For seniors, this can translate into grace in walking, better balance and greater confidence in movement. Everyday tasks such as lifting, reaching into cupboards, opening doors and walking up and down stairs or curbs are emulated in movements taught in the class. This simplified version of Tai Chi is ideal for people who are unable or unwilling to make the commitment to learn the complete Tai Chi form, a process that can take several years. Each of the exercises of the Eight Ways has an image associated with it, such as sculling, which mimics the motion of an oarsman rowing a gondola on a canal. These mental images enhance the learners experience, making it imaginative and enjoyable. Regular practice of the Eight Ways, like the Tai Chi form, builds a firm foundation by exercising the legs and feet, developing stability and balance, stimulating circulation by sending warmth to the extremities of the body, and loosening and relaxing the joints. Participants develop internal awareness and confidence that provides a sense of well-being. Campbell began his journey with Tai Chi in 1973 as part of a personal search for the life he wanted to live. I was in a state of intense indecision about how to proceed, Campbell said. I recognized that what was between me and living the life I wanted to live was fear. I was looking for ways of dealing with that fear that werent just theoretical. were functioning optimally, it was possible to reach a state that Chinese masters called a harmony of yin and yang. When this happened, he said, the energy that mobilizes and powers the immune system, produces the proper enzymes for digestion, repairs damaged cells, flushes away toxic wastes and balances the emotionsall of this energy starts to flow harmoniously, thus keeping us happy and healthy. After Korahais began to experience harmonious energy flow and balance for himself, he quit his job as a network engineer at the school of architecture at Columbia University in New York City. He said it was the right job for many years, especially with a schedule that gave him the freedom to travel and learn the discipline of his true calling teaching Qigong and Tai Chi. Eventually, he earned the title of Sifu, a Chinese word that means father and teacher. Korahais followed his parents, who were professional musicians, when they retired and relocated to Florida. He enrolled in an acupuncture school in Gainesville, where he met his wife, Akemi, a native of Venezuela. Eventually, Korahais dropped out of school to teach Qigong and Tai Chi full time. Akemi continued her acupuncture studies and later opened the Painless Acupuncture Center, which is located in the same building as her husbands studio, Flowing Zen. Now, Korahais teaches 12 classes per week at Flowing Zen. Zen means meditation, said Korahais. Meditation can be drinking coffee, eating food, not just sitting meditation, which is difficult for a lot of people. Everything I do has a flowing component. All students at Flowing Zen begin with a threehour Qigong workshop that costs $47. Also available are monthly memberships, which include classes and one-on-one instruction. Most of Campbells classes cost $100 for 10 weekly one-hour sessions. Campbell notes that in a culture which celebrates youth, Tai Chi offers a more positive perspective on growing older. Understanding the training of the human body as the ground for training the human spirit, Tai Chi tunes us to inner principles that lead to continually fuller, healthier life, Campbell said. The first principle is uprightness, which means being in perfect equilibrium with gravity and facing reality without pretense. The second principal is relaxation, meaning that at rest, a person is serene and attentive, while in action every cell is available for the simplest, most complete response. The third principle is the Tan Tienthe bodys physical center of gravity. Having our heart-mind focused at the Tan Tien means harmony in all aspects of our life, means our full being, our spirit, our internal unity can manifest, Campbell said. Seeing the human body as an exact expression of the maturing human spirit and training it accordingly, Tai Chi Chuan is like fine winethe older you get, the better you get.

Fins, Fur & Tails Among people who have eaten fish, there are few who will not acclaim their culinary value.   There are many however, who will mention the complication of bones. It also follows that many of those complainers will have eaten small fish, or they will have eaten fillets that were not boneless. The above conundrum is usually due to a row of small bones that runs along the lateral line connecting the rib cage with the outer skin. These bones, which are usually referred to as pin bones, are quite small and are easily overlooked until they are in your mouth. Because of this issue, some fishermen will discard all meat on the fillet that is south of the rib cage. Others will cut through the pin bones and rib cage and will use a pair of bone removers to remove the rib cage and pin bones.   Obviously the latter would be rather involved. Another alternative is to cook the fish whole and remove the bones while eating.   This is most often done when cooking smaller pan fish, and it is more functional for those who are familiar with the location of the bones. Another alternative that is highlighted here will maximize the salvaged flesh and remove the rib bones and pin bones efficiently during the filleting process.   J.T. Prevatt, who credits Avoiding pin bones when his son Jimmy Prevatt with teaching him, illustrates the process. Prevatt starts his fillet along the dorsal fin and cuts vertically to the rib cage.   Once he cuts adjacent to the end of the rib cage, he pushes the fillet knife through the entire width of the fish and fillets through to the tail.   He then pulls the northern part of the fillet back carefully along the rib cage until he feels the knife touch the pin bones.   From there he will follow the pin bones outward until he reaches the skin. Subsequently, he fillets the flesh from the skin until he cuts the pin bones from the skin. After that, he returns the knife edge to the unfilled edge of the pin bones and cuts adjacent to the pin bones and back to the rib cage. From there, he uses the knife tip to complete the fillet process. He emphasizes that a sharp blade and recognition of blade contact with bones are important. The accompanying photos are made while filleting crappie, but the shape of the pin bones will vary somewhat according to the fish species. The largest anomaly will present with the plain pickerel, locally known as a jack. The pin bones in the jack are actually Y bones and better resemble small wishbones in a chicken breast. This results in the jack being labeled as too bony to eat, but once the Y bones are removed, you might be surprised that the mild, delicate flesh will rival that of a crappie.Outdoors outlookThis winters late cold weather seems to have complicated a good understanding of the crappie spawn. In deeper lakes like Kingsley, the spawn is actually taking place in deeper water.   Newnans has been the most productive local lake, and it is has been giving up a lot of spawning fish along the shoreline cover. The crappie bedding activity should diminish somewhat from this last full moon. As crappie season wanes, the bass bite will escalate in the next few weeks, but most reports indicate that the only bass fanning beds in our area are the smaller bucks. Len Andrews is now staying at Kingsley Lake and sight fishing from his originally designed boat with a ladder attached and stabilized in the bow. Andrews specifies that the only action in the lake shallows is from male bass. Ed Allen also reported last week that Sampson Lake was not providing any action from the larger females. Local bass fishermen can also look forward to an active year for tournaments. The Bald Eagle open tournaments will start on March 12 at Santa Fe Lake.   Shortly afterward, the Sampson Lake open tournaments will start.   The Murphys Law Relay for Life Bass Tournament is scheduled for March 15. Mike Oglesbee is co-director of the OGS Tournament Trails in Palatka, and he has teamed up with Gene Crossway to greatly increase the reach of the organization.   The organization is working with the Wolfsons Childrens Hospital Tournament and the NEFAR Haven Hospice Tournament with hopes of increasing the reach of both events.   Those two charity tournaments are traditionally the largest bass fishing events in North Florida.

Union Correctional Institution is looking for a forever home for one dog that has been trained by the ROCK Hounds (Rehabilitation of Castaway K-9s) program. Shanti is a female boxer-beagle mix that stands about knee high and weighs approximately 29 pounds. She is about three years old and has an easy-going personality. Her trainers describe her as an intelligent dog that loves to be petted. The dogs in the ROCK Hounds program are all former strays rescued from a kill shelter. The dogs are trained by UCI inmates, ensuring they are fully housebroken, trained to walk on a leash and obey voice commands, and trained to behave themselves around other dogs and people they dont know. The dogs are trained to sleep in a crate/kennel at night. Cost to adopt a dog is $50, which includes spaying or neutering and all needed shots. According to Re-entry Officer Rachelle Parrish, UCIs dog training program has two major objectives. One is to train the dogs and make them more adoptable thus preventing them from being euthanized. The second is to provide inmates in UCIs veterans dorm many of whom suffer from depression or PTSD with a program that will improve their mental state. If you are interested in adopting Shanti, contact Officer Parrish at 386-431-2000, ext. 2248 or Officer Marcia Miller at 386-431-2168 during work hours.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The ongoing disagreement between Starke and Bradford County over the cost of services like animal control has only fueled city questions about what the county owes its citizens, and the city commission now has a recommendation from its attorney that it pursue a portion of the countys tax revenue. Attorney Paul Sanders said it would take a lot of work to get the necessary financial data together, but once done, the city could seek to recoup the tax revenue collected by the county that currently benefits county residents but not the citizens of Starke. An obvious example would be animal control. The county ceased providing animal control to the city when the city commission refused to pay a portion of the countys animal control budget. According to the city, Starke citizens already pay for that service through county taxation. Furthermore, the city commission hasnt authorized the county to collect any kind of special assessment or surcharge for animal control services from city residents (although city residents dropping off animals at the animal control facility are reportedly being asked to pay a $25 fee). But Sanders said the city should look at all services, including fire departments, law enforcement and streets. If citizens are paying taxes they are not receiving benefits from, in part because the city may already be providing those services, then he said the city could ask for that money. Alternatively the county could be compelled to establish new taxes, special assessments or service charges that would be levied on unincorporated residents alone so that countywide revenue is not being used to fund services that benefit some but not others. Sanders developed his legal opinion based on past litigation by cities in other counties. The city commission will hold a workshop to discuss the matter at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4, prior to its next regularly scheduled meeting. Brooker may get EMS station BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The town of Brooker could be home to a new county emergency medical services station, according to EMS Director Allen Parrish. Parrish told the county commission Feb. 20 that he is in the process of preparing a grant application that would cover most of the cost of setting up a station in the southwestern part of the county. Parrish was still working on the grant application and didnt have firm numbers about response time and call load for the Brooker area. Brooker is around 17 miles from Starke, an approximately 21 minute drive. Commissioner Eddie Lewis said hes been trying to get a station in the Brooker area ever since hes been on the board, and said he would appreciate the support of the rest of the commission. Building an EMS station is one thing, staffing it another. Parrish said one of Starkes two trucks would move to Brooker. Most of the countys units are concentrated in the central or eastern part of the county, he said. We really need to do something for the southwest end, and I think that would be a tremendous help, Parrish said. In addition to Starke, EMS units are housed in Lawtey and Theressa. The commission granted permission to apply for the EMS grant. The county would be required to match the grant with 10 to 25 percent of the total project cost. Projects could cause road maintenance delays Theres good news and bad news regarding some road projects the county is undertaking. The projects will address road improvement and drainage problems on Northwest 38 th Avenue (between Northwest C.R. 125 and C.R. 225) and Southeast 81 st Street in Theressa. Unfortunately, they could also negatively impact the countys normal road maintenance schedule. According to County Manager Brad Carter, the county sought FEMA funding to pay for the projects, but the grants did not amount to enough to hire an outside contractor to perform the work. Road Superintendent Paul Funderburk said each project Residents removed from home in Hampton BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Residents of Sunrise Home Care Services in Hampton were removed this week following revelations that the facility was unsafe. The county revoked Sunrises certificate of occupancy for fire safety violations, and it was also revealed that the state agency that licenses the facility has fined the operator for failing to adequately care for residents needs. The state confirmed a moratorium on new admissions has been issued. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration found operations and maintenance violations that directly threatened the physical or emotional health, safety or security of the residents, according to an administrative order posted on Feb. 21. Sunrise was fined $1,500 for violations of resident care rights and facility procedures, $2,000 for violations of food service standards and $2,000 for failure to provide a safe living environment. A complaint survey of the 28-bed facility was conducted in April 2013. According to the administrative order: Based on interview, observation, and record review, facility failed to ensure every resident of the facility had the right to live in a safe and decent living environment; be treated with consideration and respect and with due recognition of personal dignity and individuality; and manage his or her financial affairs. The administrator, Reynaldo Young, had an opportunity to request a hearing on the administrative complaint, which was delivered to the facility in January. He did not do so, and so the final order was completed last week. At the same time, Fire Marshal Chip Ware inspected Sunrise this month and found reasons to revoke the occupational license, so all 18 residents were relocated Monday. During the states review, surveyors found the administrator failed to be responsible for food services and the day-to-day supervision of food services staff, failed to ensure staff performed duties in a safe and sanitary manner, and failed to provide regular meals meeting nutritional standards. The meal observed consisted of one baked chicken drumstick, one scoop of diced beets, one scoop of mixed vegetables, one scoop of applesauce and one slice of plain white bread. Residents also had a cup of red liquid to drink. They did not have condiments like butter, salt or pepper, or alternative drinks like juice, milk or water. The menu was set, and residents were not offered options. The residents were not allowed to eat with forks or knives, either, so they struggled to eat the chicken with a spoon or with their fingers. Residents were also observed busing their own tables, and the caregiver did not change gloves between handling clean or dirty trays. Several residents requested second helpings, but the kitchen was out of chicken and other sides. Those residents complained that they were still hungry and that the kitchen was always running out of food. One resident who stood up during lunch and repeatedly said they didnt want it was not offered an alternative. The resident was taken away to be changed after their incontinence issues were spoken about openly in front of the other residents. During a snack time, residents were observed eating peanut butter on bread or a pop tart and a cup of 2 percent milk. Again, they were not given a choice. One resident interviewed said she had lost 45 pounds in a little more than three months time since coming to live at Sunrise. Multiple residents said they were never told they could have something other than what was on the menu. That menu was not even viewable by residents, who were not allowed in the kitchen where it was posted. When the administrator was interviewed, he said there were meal alternatives like peanut butter sandwiches, canned soup or ravioli, but the residents were not told about them. Only canned soup or vegetables were available because fresh produce was said to be too expensive, and residents were only allowed dry bread without butter or margarine because they needed to watch their cholesterol. Asked about dish washing procedures, the administrator said water temperature was not verified and the ratio of bleach to water was merely estimated. Asked about the interviewed residents weight loss, the administrator and supervisor said she needed to lose weight, but also had to admit there was no medical order for weight loss or a dietician approved weight loss plan. Sun sets at Sunrise Sunrise is located on C.R. 325 (Prospect Avenue) in Hampton.

Before teaching in Bradford, Harris held positions in Georgia, Alabama and elsewhere in Florida, teaching social studies, physical education and even drivers education. He was also a coach for football, tennis and basketball, and a Junior Beta Club sponsor. He made another indelible mark, though, bringing the junior-senior prom back to Apalachicola High after a more than 10-year absence. His 35-year career at Bradford High began when he arrived in 1978, teaching social studies and serving as the assistant junior varsity football coach and wrestling coach. While that was his final year coaching football, Harris continued with the wrestling team for two more years, coaching nine district champions and three state finalistssecond-, thirdand fourth-placers. He hosted a topquality wrestling clinic and the district tournament at BHS in the 1979-80 season. From 1981-85, Harris turned his attention to the student council. During his sponsorship, the council was revamped completely, transforming it from a social club to a real student government with a voter registration program and a student-approved constitution. For the first time, student government ran all homecoming activities (taking over from the administration), and it ran the schoolwide activities program, which included regular awards assemblies, fundraisers and season-end ice cream socials for all the interscholastic teams. They even set up an activity planning guidebook for future councils to follow. In its first year, the governments fundraising efforts earned more than $14,000, Harris said. The student council reached beyond the school as well to communicate with elected officials about the educational issues of concern to students. Im proud that by acting like a true student government, with awards assemblies run by the student council, we were developing real student leaders and leaders for the future, Harris said. Beginning in the mid 1980s and over the next decade or so, he worked with and then sponsored and coordinated an international exchange program between Bradford High and the VilleGymnasium, Erftstadt, Germany. There were three student trips to Germany, in 1988, 1990 and 1995, and Harris directed the last two. Then, while German students stayed in the states, trips were planned to Disney World, Tallahassee, Cape Canaveral and other spots. Not only did students and teachers have the opportunity to see other countries, but many of us have developed lasting friendships and relationships with our German friends, he said. Harris worked to expand student horizons in other ways, sponsoring and planning two senior class trips to Washington, D.C., in 1991 and 1992. In addition to the historic sites, students also met with the areas representative at the time, Congressman Cliff Stearns. In the spring of 1992, he sponsored the Bradford County Jefferson Meeting on the Constitution, which brought together college professors of history, government and law from the University of Florida, University of North Florida, Santa Fe Community College, Jacksonville University and Florida State University with local social studies teachers, civic, political and business leaders, and senior student government and economics students for a two-day seminar to discuss significant issues surrounding the U.S. Constitution. I still believe that was the finest out-of-the-classroom educational program ever offered students in the 35 years Ive been in Bradford County, Harris said. From 2001-2009, he coached the BHS academic team. The school hosted several district and conference tournaments, with varsity and junior varsity teams winning several tournaments and trophies. In 2008-09, he said BHS made it to the finals of the Commissioners Academic Challenge and the State Academic Challenge. In the classroom, Harris taught a variety of social studies courses, but primarily government, economics and American history. The excellence he demanded of students, he also demanded of himself, and he participated in seminars and workshops locally and around the country, including Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco, Charleston and Washington, D.C. Superintendent of Schools Chad Farnsworth had this to say about Harris and his years with the district: I would like to congratulate Mr. Harris on his recent retirement. Through the years he served the district in a variety of ways. He made a true impact on the lives of his students inside and outside of the classroom. Whether it was challenging his students in his government class or leading the academic team to success, he never accepted anything other than the best from Bradford students. On behalf of the Bradford County School District we wish Mr. Harris an enjoyable retirement and success in all of his future endeavors. www.facebook.com/BradfordTelegraph Brittney Hall advances toward River Jam Crewsn Myles wins band competition Three winners were chosen Feb. 15 at the Fiddler Crab Festival in Steinhatchee in the annual Suwannee River Jam Auditions.

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Master Gardener Laurie Compton at lcompton@ufl.edu. Lauries planting suggestions for March Although dianthus and other cool-season annuals will continue to flourish, start planting warm season annuals such as angelonia, wax begonia and zinnia at the end of the month. Plant dahlia, canna and gloriosa bulbs in beds that have been amended with organic matter. Provide stakes as needed to support growth. Herbs: When temperatures warm, consider growing edible ginger. Plant a rhizome in well-drained soil in full to part sun. Plant warm season vegetables such as bean, tomato, squash and corn early in the month for a late spring harvest. You will have to protect from frost! Things to do If azaleas need hard pruning to shape or produce a fuller plant, do it just after plants finish blooming. Pruning after the last flowers fade but before new buds set protects the next seasons bloom. Prune shrubs and trees when new growth begins and the end of the dormant season. Identify and conserve beneficial insects: Some insects should be encouraged in your yard! Fertilize palms, azaleas, camellias and other ornamental shrubs if needed. Choose a fertilizer that has at least 30 percent of its nitrogen as slow release. There are specialty fertilizers available for acid loving plants like blueberry and azalea. Palms requires specially formulated fertilizers, too. Irrigation: Now is the time to check sprinkler systems for issues such as broken heads or inefficient spray patterns. Wildlife activity in March Summer tanagers and great-crested flycatchers arrive to breed. Listen for newly returned chuck-wills-widows calling after sunset. Plant columbine, coral bean and other wildflowers to attract hummingbirds. Wild turkey and quail begin breeding in central and north Florida. Snakes become active and move to favorite feeding areas. Largemouth bass spawning throughout central and north Florida. Spring turkey hunters take to the field. Chickasaw plum and crab apples bloom in north Florida. Did you know? Coral bean is a native plant with red tubular flowers that grow on tall stalks in the spring, drawing hummingbirds and butterflies. In the fall, as the rest of the summer garden fades, coral beans seedpods begin to mature and the show begins. What once looked a bit like English pea pods turn dark, almost black, and split open to reveal shiny, scarlet red seeds inside. Theyre very prettyand very poisonous, so be sure to keep them away from kids and pets. Source: http://bit.ly/1gxicr4. Laurie Compton School Teacher Tamala Delashmet.

They are not faceless children. They are children you see in your neighborhoods, in malls, in classes with your children, and even in your churches. They come from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. The common thread is that their families have failed to keep them safe. They often have PTSD because of the traumas they have seen and felt. But even with horrible and difficult home situations, they almost always love their parents. So when they are taken away in the dead of night from all that they know and love, however bad, their worlds are turned upside down, leaving them scared and feeling alone. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are appointed by the court to be the voice of these children, but they do so much more. They nurture them and make sure they are safe. Training is free, and the next class starts March 3. Call 904-966-6237, go to www.gal. alachua.fl.us, or just browse to get more information. Enter your plants at the fair The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the Bradford County Extension Service invite you to enter plants in the Bradford County Fair, held March 11-15. There are three divisions this year. Along with the adult amateur division, there is an adult professional category for nursery owners and professional growers, and a youth division. Entries can include potted houseplants, hanging plants, patio plants, cut or potted edible or food producing plants, vegetables, fruit and nuts. There is also a section for honey, cane syrup and eggs. For more information about the agriculture/horticulture show please call Laurie at the Bradford County Extension Office at 904966-6299.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 Trailers at Sunrise Home Care Services. Another resident also expressed concern about his weight loss, but observed weight loss was never addressed with the nurse practitioner who visited the facility. Residents didnt just complain about their involuntary diets. Some also complained about the early bedtime of 7 p.m., with one saying she would just lie there and watch the moon until she finally fell asleep. The same resident, who had to leave the main building to get to her room, said when it rained she would get wet and dirty. The area in front of the ramp became flooded and muddy and she had to walk through it with her walker. She complained of the lack of freedom and inability to go for walks because there was only dirt or mud surrounding the facility. The resident also received a $500 check from a prior facility she lived at, and it was signed so the administrator could cash it, but it had not been cashed at the time of the review and she had not received any of the money. The same was true of checks for four other residents, and one had already moved away. The administrator said he had the checks, although he couldnt remember when he received them, and he was trying to cash the checks, but had yet to do so. He also received residents Social Security checks, but did not provide them statements. He deposited the checks for them, giving each $54, but did not get receipts from them as proof of receiving the cash. Surveyors also noted that residents requiring home health care were not given a choice of provider, and a caregiver and supervisor were written up for not calling residents by their name, but instead calling them honey or baby. Observation found exposure to dirty and torn furniture; tripping and wheel chair hazards; dirty carpets, mattresses and pillows; exposed wiring on an electric cord; a nonoperational exit alarm and one exit that wouldnt open at all; no paper towels in the womens restroom; unsanitary conditions in the mens restroom; missing soap and towels in private bathrooms; shared doors between bathrooms; missing light bulbs; a dirty garbage can in the dining room and a laundry room in disrepair; tree branches, debris and tall grass in the yard; and dirty kitchens, bathrooms and other conditions in the occupied trailers, including clutter, bugs and missing bulbs. One resident said he had lived in one of the trailers for five years. Cleaning services were provided, he said, but they never gave him soap to wash his hands. It wasnt the issues found during the state survey that led to the shutdown, however. On Feb. 12, the county fire inspector was on site to conduct a water supply test of the fire sprinkler system. While there, he noticed the range top fire suppression system was missing. (The facility was required to install it following a fire safety inspection in March 2011. An inspection nearly a year later found that it had been installed.) Ware met with Young and a representative from the Agency for Health Care Administration on Feb. 18 to explain Youngs responsibilities. During that discussion, they talked about the fire control panel, which was reportedly damaged by a lightning strike, but had yet to be prepared. Ware also informed Young there would be a spot check of fire protection devices, during which he found water had been turned off to the fire sprinkler system in one trailer. That system and the system in another trailer were found to be in disrepair with accumulated scale, rust, dirt and algae on the pipes. Ware also noted exposed wiring in the main building, laundry area and nonfunctional emergency lights. Perhaps most damning, however, was the observation of a fire drill during which residents with wheelchairs and walkers encountered obstacles including grass, mud, standing water and uneven terrain while trying to evacuate the facility. It took nearly a quarter of an hour to get everyone out. It was on Wares recommendation that the certificate of occupancy was revoked. In 2011, the Agency for Health Care Administration entered a settlement with Young over a prior denial of a license to operate the facility for failing to meet minimum licensure standards and a pattern of deficient performance. Young challenged the denial and the agency eventually settled with him. A spokesperson for the Agency for Health Care Administration confirmed that residents were removed from Sunrise, and that while the facilitys license was still active, that could change pending further review of the fire marshals report. No further admissions to the facility were being allowed. Young did not respond to a call for comment. SUNRISE Continued from 1A A copy of Sanders document was provided to the county attorneys office for comment, but there was no response as of press time. The city and county commissions have each approved competing versions of an interlocal agreement for certain services, but they havent been able to agree on identical language. Neither of the recent agreements mention of animal control. In other business: Police Chief Jeff Johnson talked the commission into approving the purchase of six new police vehicles, saying his budget would otherwise continue to be eaten up by maintenance costs. Financed, the annual cost will amount to $35,000 to $37,000 a year for four years, according to Johnson. It will be paid out of the departments budget for repairs. One of the new vehicles will remain unmarked and driven by the chief, although it would also be available to employees like the project manager when needed. Commissioner Tommy Chastain didnt want to see the new vehicles driven by administrators, but by officers on patrol. He further suggested the new vehicles be parked when not being used on duty instead of being driven to homes outside the city limits. Of his 19-vehicle fleet, four were out of service, but Johnson said that instead of trying to sell the older cars, he wanted to hold onto them for parts. The cars are being purchased for the state contract price of $21,200 plus the cost of accessories. They are Dodge Chargers, Johnson said, because some of his larger officers have difficulty fitting in the Ford Interceptors. They are also more affordable, he said. parking ordinance amendments are being prepared that would allow the city to tow repeat violators of the downtown parking limits. The owner of a towed vehicle would have to pay the accumulated fines in order to get his ride back. the citys budget was amended to pay help pay for the cost of a new finance department employee, a part-time senior accountant. This included cutting funds budgeted for retirement contributions for Finance Director Alica McMillian, who is in the DROP program, and the former clerk. parking ordinance amendments are being prepared that would allow the city to tow repeat violators of the downtown parking limits. The owner of a towed vehicle would have to pay the accumulated fines in order to get his ride back. a meter reading bid from GRU was rejected, and the city will continue reading meters itself, hiring a new employee to replace a retiree. It was confirmed all meters, including inactive meters, would be read as a precaution against utility theft. the finishing touches are being placed on the citys online bill payment system. City Clerk Ricky Thompson is bidding out all city services, with the exception of the attorney, who was recently hired. BATTLE Continued from 1A would require a minimum of three road department employees, sometimes as many as five, and multiple pieces of county equipment. The 38 th Avenue project is estimated to take four weeks to complete, and the Theressa project eight weeks. During that time, it is possible the countys routine maintenance schedule could get behind. County sharing Keystones equipment The county commission has entered an agreement with the Keystone Heights Volunteer Fire Department to share equipment. That department has been sidelined since a falling out with Clay County, and attempts to become affiliated with the city of Keystone and Bradford County were rejected. But now Bradford has found a way to use the departments resources when needed, as well as its volunteer power. When repairs or some other emergency has created a need for supplemental vehicles or equipment, Bradford will call on the Keystone area department to lend what is needed. The county will try to ensure that a member of that fire department is present on any call during which any of its equipment is being used. The fire department will keep its vehicles and equipment insured and will provide workers compensation coverage for its volunteers. If an injury occurs during a Bradford County call, however, the county will cover any out-of-pocket expenses not covered by insurance. Emergency Management Director Brian Johns presented the agreement to the board, saying a tanker with a radiator leak would take a couple of weeks to repair. During that time, Bradford will have access to KHVFDs truck. He said a similar sharing agreement exist with Union County for ambulances and EMS equipment. The agreement was unanimously approved. In other business: the commission held a hearing and granted a special use permit so Verizon Wireless could place a new telecommunications tower off of Southwest C.R. 18 near Brooker. The site is 62-plus acres owned by Betty Ann and Edwin Prevatt, just outside of the town. Verizon will be leasing a 100 square-foot area for the construction of the 250-foot tower. The hearing was quick and painless for Verizons representatives, as most of the request was covered by Zoning Director Randy Andrews. There is a possibility that public safety communications will benefit if the sheriffs office is allowed to locate an antenna on the tower, saving the county from the cost of erecting its own tower. Commissioner Lewis said mobile phone service is poor in the Brooker area, and James Johnston of Shutts and Bowen said the proposed tower would be a remedy for that. COUNTY Continued from 1A The Suwannee River Water Management District Governing Board authorized the district to purchase a 340-acre tract in Bradford County for use of flood control and water resource projects. The property will be purchased from Bradford Timberlands LLC. The property is adjacent to Camp Blanding. The purchase will be funded by a grant from the Florida National Guard through the Department of Defense as part of a program designed to secure buffers around military installations. The district will use the property to store water to help prevent downstream flooding and to ultimately implement a regional Floridan Aquifer recharge project. The District will capture floodwaters to recharge the aquifer. Recharging the aquifer in this location will benefit aquifer levels in both the Suwannee River and St. Johns River water management districts. This unique land purchase is ideally located to serve as a buffer to Camp Blanding while presenting an opportunity to provide flood protection and implement a water resource development project benefiting aquifer levels in both the Suwannee River and St. Johns River water management districts, said District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. This acquisition provides an opportunity to implement projects that will increase recharge, help manage the regions water resources, and potentially benefit natural systems in both districts, said St. Johns District Executive Director Hans G. Tanzler III. Land purchases to help recharge the Floridan Aquifer benefit many area waterways including the Santa Fe River and the Santa Fe and Little Santa Fe lakes in the Suwannee River Water Management District and the Keystone area lakes in the St. Johns River Water Management District, said Drew Bartlett, DEP deputy secretary for water policy and ecosystem restoration. I commend the districts decision to buy smart land that has clear benefits to our water resources. Rayonier supporting departments Rayonier Inc. has contributed $17,000 to local volunteer fire departments across Florida and Georgia to recognize their vital services battling wildfires on Rayonier property and in surrounding areas. Volunteer firefighters play an essential role in protecting property in the rural communities where we operate. These individuals donate their time to ensure their communities are safe. We appreciate their generous commitment to helping others, said John Enlow, Rayoniers forest resources director for Atlantic and northern regions. We are proud to work alongside these volunteers when wildfires cross Rayonier property. Rayonier made the donations to volunteer fire departments in Nassau and Bradford counties in Florida as well as departments in Brantley, Bryan, Clinch, Cook, Charlton and Ware counties in Georgia. The company presented these donations to the departments in November, December and January. The company has 2.6 million acres of timberland in 10 states and New Zealand, with 416,480 acres in Florida and 690,955 acres in Georgia. While Rayonier is one of the few in the timber industry with an in-house wildfire prevention and suppression unit, local fire departments assist in fighting wildfires that occur on the companys land. Diabetes a growing concern Crisis and epidemic are words commonly associated the growth of diabetes in the United States, according to Winifred Holland at the Clay County Department of Health. It is predicted that without improvements in eating habits and levels of physical activity one-third of the population will soon be diabetic. Diabetes significantly contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, blindness and amputations. A person with diabetes is more likely to experience a premature death and is twice as likely to die on any given day. Slight changes in lifestyle can reduce the risk of acquiring diabetes or suffering the complications of diabetes. A 5 to 7 percent reduction of body weight and weekly moderate physical activity can reduce your risk. Disability and premature death do not need to be inevitable consequences of diabetes. Physical activity, dietary changes, self-management training, ongoing support and, when necessary, medications can help control the effects of diabetes. Approximately 7 million Americans have undiagnosed diabetes. Everyone is encouraged to communicate with their primary care provider regarding their diabetes risk. Small changes can ensure a healthier future. Diabetes Risk Factors 45 years of age or older. Overweight. Have a parent with diabetes. Have a sister or brother with diabetes. Background is AfricanAmerican, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, AsianAmerican or Pacific Islander. Developed diabetes while pregnant (gestational diabetes), or gave birth to a baby weighing 9 pounds or more. Physically active less than three times a week. If you have two or more of the risk factors above, you should consider getting a blood test from a health care provider for diabetes.

BHS chemistry teacher Chelsea George said schools ideally take 15 students to the Olympiad to compete in events designed for two-student teams. The Friday before the event, George said she had six students who were going to compete. However, one backed out of the event, two got sick and another two got lost on the way to the event. That left Shuman, who was allowed to compete on his own. He was very nervous, George said. Despite that, Shuman, a sophomore, earned a secondplace finish in the anatomy and physiology event, while placing third in five other events: designer genes, rocks and minerals, technical problem solving, circuit lab and dynamic planet. The regional event was made up of teams from Union and Dixie County high schools (Union placed first) and also featured two Leon County BHS student competes in Science middle school teams. This is Bradford High Schools first participation in a Science Olympiad. George is excited about getting BHS more involved, saying the Olympiad gets students to think outside of the box, as well as giving them a different set of experiences. With the Olympiad, they get exposed to a lot more stuff they may not necessarily see at Bradford, George said. The state-level Olympiad will be held at the University of Central Florida on March 15. Georges goal is to take a full team. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School senior Madison Colaw signed a letter of intent on Feb. 25 to play soccer at Lakelands Florida Southern College. Colaw, a forward/midfielder, said thankful best described her feelings. Thankful and humble because I feel like God has blessed me with so many opportunities, she said. She also expressed a tremendous appreciation for her parents, James and Robin Colaw. I dont think a lot of people understand how much theyve had to sacrifice financially and just driving so long for tournaments every weekend, Colaw said. Colaw, who has played at KHHS since the seventh grade, said she was also excited about the future and what was in store for her at Florida Southern. She said when she first began considering colleges, she thought of big schools like the University of Florida. However, being a dual-enrolled student at Santa Fe College gave Colaw an appreciation for smaller classroom sizes. Colaw, who wants to become a pediatric oncologist, said she loves the academic program at Florida Southern, but said soccer coach Brittany Jones is a big draw as well. I think the coach really stood out, she said. That was a big part of my decision because she seems like she really wants to get to know the girls and connect with them. Former KHHS soccer coach David McCollum said Colaw, who has played premier club level ball since the age of 13, brings great skills to the field as well as the ability to put the team first. Shes just a great player and just a great person all around, McCollum said. Shes always supportive of her teammates. She was never one to put anybody down. It was always for the team. I guess I appreciated that more than anything. McCollum said another attribute of Colaws is her understanding of the game. She sees all of the field, and she understands the schematic as to how each player has specific responsibilities, McCollum said. She really took that in. Current KHHS coach Kenny Seneca said Colaw proved to be a good leader and was certainly missed when she wasnt on the field. She made her teammates so much better, Seneca said. She can draw the defense and dish the ball off. She can score goals, but she can also just make everybody around her better. Despite missing approximately 10 games this past season while recovering from an injury, Colaw still scored 24 goals, while dishing out 15 assists. It takes a lot to keep Colaw off the field. Keystones Colaw to play soccer at Florida Southern College 2011 to 2013, with a record of more than $72,000 in donations being recorded during that span.

Dear Editor: On (Feb. 13), as I sat under the hair dryer correcting my gray challenged hair, I looked across the room and I could see two ladies facing each other talking. Over the roar of my hair dryer, I couldnt hear what they were saying and could only imagine. You might ask what did these ladies have in common. Well within just a few days of each other they both lost their spouses. And who were these two ladies; Sherry Strickland and Sharon Jones. But in reality their husbands led very similar lives; both were long time business owners. One was the owner of Leonards Outboard Shop here in Keystone and the other in Jacksonville, Economy Printing. Leonard repaired the motors and Bobby loved fishing. Their word and handshake meant more than any signed contract. Both served our country in the United States Navy. While in my eyes that certainly makes them heroes, but they are what I call everyday life heroes. They got up each morning went to work, paid their bills, loved their families, served their community, supported the schools, and held integrity to the highest level. When they were around people felt secure and safe. Sherry and Sharon must have had a lot to share and I am glad that these two gentlemen shared their lives with my family and the entire Keystone Community. Rest in Peace Bobby Strickland and Leonard Jones. Sincerely, Tina Bullock 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 Armbands on Sale Now!Save Now, Dont Wait!

Explain to us how five people put in for the appointment for the Sheriffs position, four have more experience, and the one with the least amount of experience gets the interview, and also the Appointment. Furthermore what good is the Undersheriff when he cant even carry out the duties of being sheriff when the unthinkable happens? Thats not saying much for our county. This is not a family business and there has to be a change. When you apply for a job, all qualified applicants usually get an interview and then the decision is made on the position, but in our case it was not like that. We the citizens of Union County have a choice to make this election and we think the decision is clear, Change is for the better. Concerned citizens of Union County Citizens want to be heard in regard to UC Dear Editor: Mr. Buster Rahns editorial Capital Punishment in Florida: time for a new look? in your 2/20/14 edition was much appreciated by me and, perhaps, others who are struggling with this emotional question The States responsibility is to provide security for society but does it have to kill its inmates to protect its citizens from convicted, first degree murderers? Most penal authorities agree that this security can be assured when a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole is given. Thus the question, Why does the State kill individuals? And further, How does the State promote a reduction in senseless killings among its citizens when it kills its prisoners even though a non-killing option is available! As one who has been present in the designated Protest area across the road from the death chamber on S.R. 16 for many executions, I have never been there three times in just two months. If Gov. Scott continues this pace, there will be 18 executions in 2014 the most since capital punishment was re-instituted in 1979. Our nation and the civilized world is moving away from the death penalty as Florida is going in the opposite direction. I have a sick feeling in my Florida moving in opposite direction in regard to death penalty stomach that this dramatic acceleration in state-sponsored killings is a part of Gov. Scotts re-election strategy. If so, this is not only morally and ethically reprehensible but, also politically short-sighted in my view. Mr. Rahns closing thoughts in his perceptive editorial suggests that Floridians may be considering another way. 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. John X. Linnehan Hampton Remembering everyday life heroes Dear Editor: The botched rollout of the Health Insurance Marketplace last October per provision of Expand Medicaid as called for by Affordable Care Act the Affordable Care Act added momentum to Republican attacks against Obamacare. Mind you, the Republican Party has been trying to dismantle or defund the Affordable Care Act from the time it was signed into law by President Obama in 2010. I think the Republicans have been largely successful in creating distrust so much so that many have probably forgotten that the American people have long been asking for health care reform. When President Obama was elected in 2008, 49 million U. S. residents had no health insurance. The United States is the only industrialized nation that does not guarantee access to health care for all their citizens. 45,000 uninsured Americans die every year for lack of medical treatment. Medical bills are a leading cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. Surprisingly, most of medical bankruptcy filers are from the middle class. The Affordable Care Act was a political compromise to change some of the shortcomings of our health care system but without dethroning the powerful forprofit health care industry. The law does not regulate, or place caps on, health insurance premiums, medical treatment costs, or prices of prescription drugs. Supposedly competition in the market will drive down those costs. I believe, on the other hand, that we will not see reasonable health care costs because capitalistic greed will continue to find ways to make their profits. The Affordable Care Act provides subsidy in the form of advanced premium tax credit for insurance purchase on the Health Insurance Marketplace. However said subsidy is available ONLY to people with income ABOVE 100 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. The Affordable Care Act intended to provide health insurance to people BELOW the Poverty Level through expansion of the Medicaid program. The federal government will pay 100 percent of the cost of Medicaid expansion for the first three years, and 90 percent thereafter. Heres the rub. The Medicaid program is administered by each individual state although funding comes from both federal and state funds. In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of most of Obamacare but ruled that the federal government could not require states to expand their Medicaid program. Instead, individual states could choose whether or not to expand Medicaid in their state. Nearly 4 million Floridians have no health insurance. Medicaid expansion will provide health coverage to 1.2 million low-income Floridians who do not earn enough to qualify for premium tax credit but are too poor to afford insurance without financial help. The Florida Senate passed a Medicaid expansion plan in the 2013 legislative session. However the bill died in the Florida House of Representatives on the pretext that our Republican legislators doubted the ability of the federal government to finance Medicaid expansion. It is my opinion that the decision by our Florida Legislature to opt out of Medicaid expansion is politically driven and certainly not in the interest of the people. Florida has the second highest percentage of uninsured in the U.S. If Florida were to expand the Medicaid program, our state can gain 50 billion dollars in additional revenue for the next ten years. Such revenue would be an economic boost to Florida. At the same time, Medicaid expansion will benefit individuals and families living at and below the poverty level. By opting out of Medicaid expansion, Florida legislators are choosing to deny care to the neediest of the needy. It should be pointed out that, in anticipation of Medicaid expansion, the Affordable Care Act drastically reduces funding for hospitals mandated to provide uncompensated emergency room care, again penalizing uninsured Floridians. To bring the issue closer to home, allow me to share statistics who could be our relatives, or friends, or neighbors, or simply persons we have encountered in our community. According to the 2010 census, 16 percent of Bradford residents live in poverty. This figure is higher than the statistic for Florida in general (15.6 percent) and significantly higher than the statistic for the U.S. (14.9 percent). Bradford County is predominantly white. The median age of Bradford County residents is 39.5 years. To me, it means that, under present circumstances, many of the uninsured in our county will likely remain uninsured for a long time. The next regular Florida legislative session will start on March 4, 2014 and will continue for 60 days until May 2, 2014. I urge Floridians to tell Florida Legislature to expand the Medicaid program as provided by the Affordable Care Act so that low-income Floridians, the neediest of the needy, can gain access to health care. Some readers may be interested to know that the law does not provide health coverage to illegal immigrants. A group in Gainesville called Just Health Care is circulating a petition for the expansion of Medicaid in Florida without privatization. The organization believes that access to health care should be considered a human right and should be available to ALL citizens. The petition is available at www. justhealthcareflorida.org. We tell the world that America is a Christian nation and we take pride in our Christian values. In the eyes of the Lord, there are no Republicans or Democrats, the poor are just as worthy as the rich, we are all His children. Christian values preach love and charity. He who has pity on the poor lends to the LORD, and He will pay back what he has given. (Proverbs 19:17) Isnt it right and just to practice our faith? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Matthew 25:40) Mrs. Fe Ripka Hampton

to do a variety of standing poses. Yogastretch Classes are led by Ben Bridgman, a certified group fitness instructor who is also certified by the Silver Sneakers program. I really enjoy working with senior adults, many of whom have never had a fitness regimen before they became active with Silver Sneakers, Bridgman said. There are Silver Sneakers classes especially for cardio fitness and weightlifting, but Yogastretch is different. Participants may feel that there isnt any benefit to a class where they dont break a sweat, but all they need to do is try it. They always leave feeling better, more flexible and more relaxed after the session. Bridgman also teaches a combination yoga/Pilates stretch class following his popular indoor cycle classes at the Bradford Union Technical Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Indoor cycle classes start at 5:15 p.m. and typically last an hour. Following that, cyclers are ready to stretch and tone their muscles. Its really the best thing to do after an hour on a stationary bike, which can cause muscles especially the large muscles of the legsto become shortened and tight, Bridgman said. The Pilates work emphasizes strengthening the core muscles, such as the abdominals and back muscles, but the yoga work really helps increase flexibility and decrease muscle tightness. We do a few minutes of relaxation at the end, and I am constantly amazed at how effective it is. You wouldnt think lying on a thin yoga mat on a hard tile floor would be relaxing, but it is. People dont want to get up, mainly because its the only time they allow themselves to be completely relaxed. Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese exercise practiced in slow motion for relaxation, vitality, health and grace. Described paradoxically as a non-aggressive martial art, it is based on yielding and awareness rather than force and resistance. Tai Chi takes seven to 10 minutes to practice, requires no special equipment except flat shoes and open space, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Starke does not currently have live Tai Chi instruction, although Bridgman has been studying the martial art for several years and hopes to be able to add it to his offerings. The Bradford Senior Center offers DVD Tai Chi training in combination with its chair yoga classes. If youre willing to travel to Gainesville, there are plenty of options for in-person Tai Chi training.

He started to get results through the practice of Tai Chi and meditation, realizing what was generating the fear in my mind was ignorance, not understanding how to work with the mind, how to process the existing fear and how to awaken the natural human state that is fearless. Finding both religious dogma and exclusively rational approaches to living lacking because they failed to satisfactorily address ethical principals for decisions as well as mans profound spiritual nature, Campbell found a home at the Shr Jung Tai Chi School in New York Citys Chinatown section, studying under the legendary Cheng Man-ching. Cheng, who died in 1975, was known for Tai Chi Chuan and his Yang-style short form, which is composed of 37 movements that take less than 10 minutes to practice instead of the 20 to 30 minutes required by the Yang long form. Campbell also had the benefit of the teachings of Oscar Ichazo, the Bolivian-born founder of the Arica School, a human potential movement group that teaches a body of techniques for inherent consciousness-raising and an ideology to relate to the world in an awakened way. Ichazo eventually introduced his school to Chengs school. Anthony Korahais, like Campbell, was attracted to the spiritual, healing aspects of Tai Chi, which he hadnt found in other martial arts such as karate and kung fu. He began his Tai Chi journey, also in New York City, as a result of an inner struggle, specifically a debilitating case of clinical depression. He recalled living with a fog of despair that returned each morning, engulfing him in darkness. Through the study of Qigonga practice of aligning breath, movement and awareness for exercise, healing and meditationas well as Tai Chi, he found relief. In Malaysia, studying with Grandmaster Wong, Korahais learned that when human energy systems Sixth St., Suite 220 (352-3713718). Anthony Korahais directs the Flowing Zen Studio at 5127 N.W. 39 th Ave. (352-672-7613, flowingzen.com.) Campbell, who teaches 10 classes a week, often starts students with a course called the Eight Ways of Tai Chi Chuan, a gentle exercise program developed especially for elderly people, although it is appropriate for anyone who would like an introduction to Tai Chi. Unlike exercises which use exertion and stress to build muscular strength, the Eight Ways uses gentle, flowing movements to relax and loosen the body and the joints, to stimulate circulation, to build stability in the legs and feet, and to develop an awareness of ones internal strength. For seniors, this can translate into grace in walking, better balance and greater confidence in movement. Everyday tasks such as lifting, reaching into cupboards, opening doors and walking up and down stairs or curbs are emulated in movements taught in the class. This simplified version of Tai Chi is ideal for people who are unable or unwilling to make the commitment to learn the complete Tai Chi form, a process that can take several years. Each of the exercises of the Eight Ways has an image associated with it, such as sculling, which mimics the motion of an oarsman rowing a gondola on a canal. These mental images enhance the learners experience, making it imaginative and enjoyable. Regular practice of the Eight Ways, like the Tai Chi form, builds a firm foundation by exercising the legs and feet, developing stability and balance, stimulating circulation by sending warmth to the extremities of the body, and loosening and relaxing the joints. Participants develop internal awareness and confidence that provides a sense of well-being. Campbell began his journey with Tai Chi in 1973 as part of a personal search for the life he wanted to live. I was in a state of intense indecision about how to proceed, Campbell said. I recognized that what was between me and living the life I wanted to live was fear. I was looking for ways of dealing with that fear that werent just theoretical. were functioning optimally, it was possible to reach a state that Chinese masters called a harmony of yin and yang. When this happened, he said, the energy that mobilizes and powers the immune system, produces the proper enzymes for digestion, repairs damaged cells, flushes away toxic wastes and balances the emotionsall of this energy starts to flow harmoniously, thus keeping us happy and healthy. After Korahais began to experience harmonious energy flow and balance for himself, he quit his job as a network engineer at the school of architecture at Columbia University in New York City. He said it was the right job for many years, especially with a schedule that gave him the freedom to travel and learn the discipline of his true calling teaching Qigong and Tai Chi. Eventually, he earned the title of Sifu, a Chinese word that means father and teacher. Korahais followed his parents, who were professional musicians, when they retired and relocated to Florida. He enrolled in an acupuncture school in Gainesville, where he met his wife, Akemi, a native of Venezuela. Eventually, Korahais dropped out of school to teach Qigong and Tai Chi full time. Akemi continued her acupuncture studies and later opened the Painless Acupuncture Center, which is located in the same building as her husbands studio, Flowing Zen. Now, Korahais teaches 12 classes per week at Flowing Zen. Zen means meditation, said Korahais. Meditation can be drinking coffee, eating food, not just sitting meditation, which is difficult for a lot of people. Everything I do has a flowing component. All students at Flowing Zen begin with a threehour Qigong workshop that costs $47. Also available are monthly memberships, which include classes and one-on-one instruction. Most of Campbells classes cost $100 for 10 weekly one-hour sessions. Campbell notes that in a culture which celebrates youth, Tai Chi offers a more positive perspective on growing older. Understanding the training of the human body as the ground for training the human spirit, Tai Chi tunes us to inner principles that lead to continually fuller, healthier life, Campbell said. The first principle is uprightness, which means being in perfect equilibrium with gravity and facing reality without pretense. The second principal is relaxation, meaning that at rest, a person is serene and attentive, while in action every cell is available for the simplest, most complete response. The third principle is the Tan Tienthe bodys physical center of gravity. Having our heart-mind focused at the Tan Tien means harmony in all aspects of our life, means our full being, our spirit, our internal unity can manifest, Campbell said. Seeing the human body as an exact expression of the maturing human spirit and training it accordingly, Tai Chi Chuan is like fine winethe older you get, the better you get.

Fins, Fur & Tails Among people who have eaten fish, there are few who will not acclaim their culinary value. There are many, however, who will mention the complication of bones. It also follows that many of those complainers will have eaten small fish, or they will have eaten fillets that were not boneless. The above conundrum is usually due to a row of small bones that runs along the lateral line connecting the rib cage with the outer skin. These bones, which are usually referred to as pin bones, are quite small and are easily overlooked until they are in your mouth. Because of this issue, some fishermen will discard all meat on the fillet that is south of the rib cage. Others will cut through the pin bones and rib cage and will use a pair of bone removers to remove the rib cage and pin bones. Obviously the latter would be rather involved. Another alternative is to cook the fish whole and remove the bones while eating. This is most often done when cooking smaller pan fish, and it is more functional for those who are familiar with the location of the bones. Another alternative that is highlighted here will maximize the salvaged flesh and remove the rib bones and pin bones efficiently during the filleting process. J.T. Prevatt, who credits Avoiding pin bones when his son Jimmy Prevatt with teaching him, illustrates the process. Prevatt starts his fillet along the dorsal fin and cuts vertically to the rib cage. Once he cuts adjacent to the end of the rib cage, he pushes the fillet knife through the entire width of the fish and fillets through to the tail. He then pulls the northern part of the fillet back carefully along the rib cage until he feels the knife touch the pin bones. From there he will follow the pin bones outward until he reaches the skin. Subsequently, he fillets the flesh from the skin until he cuts the pin bones from the skin. After that, he returns the knife edge to the unfilled edge of the pin bones and cuts adjacent to the pin bones and back to the rib cage. From there, he uses the knife tip to complete the fillet process. He emphasizes that a sharp blade and recognition of blade contact with bones are important. The accompanying photos are made while filleting crappie, but the shape of the pin bones will vary somewhat according to the fish species. The largest anomaly will present with the plain pickerel, locally known as a jack. The pin bones in the jack are actually Y bones and better resemble small wishbones in a chicken breast. This results in the jack being labeled as too bony to eat, but once the Y bones are removed, you might be surprised that the mild, delicate flesh will rival that of a crappie. Outdoors outlook This winters late cold weather seems to have complicated a good understanding of the crappie spawn. In deeper lakes like Kingsley, the spawn is actually taking place in deeper water. Newnans has been the most productive local lake, and it is has been giving up a lot of spawning fish along the shoreline cover. The crappie bedding activity should diminish somewhat from this last full moon. As crappie season wanes, the bass bite will escalate in the next few weeks, but most reports indicate that the only bass fanning beds in our area are the smaller bucks. Len Andrews is now staying at Kingsley Lake and sight fishing from his originally designed boat with a ladder attached and stabilized in the bow. Andrews specifies that the only action in the lake shallows is from male bass. Ed Allen also reported last week that Sampson Lake was not providing any action from the larger females. Local bass fishermen can also look forward to an active year for tournaments. The Bald Eagle open tournaments will start on March 12 at Santa Fe Lake. Shortly afterward, the Sampson Lake open tournaments will start. The Murphys Law Relay for Life Bass Tournament is scheduled for March 15. Mike Oglesbee is co-director of the OGS Tournament Trails in Palatka, and he has teamed up with Gene Crossway to greatly increase the reach of the organization. The organization is working with the Wolfsons Childrens Hospital Tournament and the NEFAR Haven Hospice Tournament with hopes of increasing the reach of both events. Those two charity tournaments are traditionally the largest bass fishing events in North Florida. Tight lines until next week.

Shanti is a female boxer-beagle mix that stands about knee high and weighs approximately 29 pounds. She is about three years old and has an easy-going personality. Her trainers describe her as an intelligent dog that loves to be petted. The dogs in the ROCK Hounds program are all former strays rescued from a kill shelter. The dogs are trained by UCI inmates, ensuring they are fully housebroken, trained to walk on a leash and obey voice commands, and trained to behave themselves around other dogs and people they dont know. The dogs are trained to sleep in a crate/kennel at night. Cost to adopt a dog is $50, which includes spaying or neutering and all needed shots. According to Re-entry Officer Rachelle Parrish, UCIs dog training program has two major objectives. One is to train the dogs and make them more adoptable thus preventing them from being euthanized. The second is to provide inmates in UCIs veterans dorm many of whom suffer from depression or PTSD with a program that will improve their mental state. If you are interested in adopting Shanti, contact Officer Parrish at 386-431-2000, ext. 2248 or Officer Marcia Miller at 386-431-2168 during work hours.
