CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Local authorities have helped capture an alleged murderer and arsonist sought by Duval County. The Bradford County Sheriffs Office and the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office announced last week that Randal William Wagoner had been arrested. According to BCSO Capt. Brad Smith, JSO detectives have been working on the case for several months to develop the probable cause necessary to seek an arrest warrant. They caught up with Wagoner at the Timbuktu Lounge in Starke on the afternoon of March 6. The 45-year-old suspect did not resist being taken into custody, but he refused to answer questions. Wagoners arrest report lists his home address as Raiford in Union County. Wagoner is charged with first-degree arson and the second-degree murder of Kathy Lorraine Johnson, 43. Firefighters responded to a fire at Greybeards Tavern on Commonwealth Avenue in Jacksonville on the afternoon of Dec. 1, 2013. After firefighting personnel extinguished the fire, a deceased victim was discovered. Foul play was not suspected until a medical examiner determined Johnson died prior to the fire of blunt force trauma. JSO Assistant Chief Chris Butler said Wagoner was the last person seen with the victim. He said Wagoner admitted he was with Johnson, but denied causing her any harm or starting the fire. A combination of witness testimony and forensic evidence has allegedly proven otherwise, although the exact motive was unclear. Butler said the victim lived above the bar and the she and Wagoner knew each other. There may have been an agreement to exchange sex for drugs, but Butler said they dont believe that actually took place. Wagoner was in the Bradford County Jail until March 10, when he was extradited to Jacksonville. Bond was set at more than $500,000. Starke calling for fair, accountable taxation BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Starke City Commission talked more during a workshop last week about its plan to analyze the collection and use of the countys tax revenue to determine what the people of Starke are getting for their money. City attorney Paul Sanders said the process that is being undertaken is about making sure the tax burden is equitably assigned. The city commission cant expect to get a check from the county when all is said and done, but taxpayers could see a difference in their annual bill, he said. City commissioners have been asking the county for a breakdown of where its property tax revenue goes. They were told about the basic assignment of a portion of the tax levy to the general fund, fines and forfeitures, emergency medical services, and the health department, but the information doesnt get any more specific. The county general fund, for example, covers a number of departments, and around 7 mills of the tax levy is deposited there. How much of that 7 mills goes to each service has not been calculated, let alone how much of that 7 mills is from the city or benefits the city specifically. With more and more talk over the years about who is paying for what, and why, the city commission wants answers to these questions. Instead of a blanket 9.1789 mill levy county wide, Sanders said the countys levy should be divided by service, with municipalities given the option of whether or not to opt in. The county would set up municipal service tax units for law enforcement, roads, fire service, etc., and the millage would be split among those services. A citizens tax bill would then reflect only those services they should actually be paying for. Sanders said with this information, the city could analyze whether or not it was more cost effective for citizens to pay the county for fire protection, for example, or whether they were better off with the city fire department. Either way, citizens wouldnt be taxed twice for the same service. And, Sanders said, the citizens of Starke Out with the old INSIDE: Scouts Honor Register Flight Survivor Shares His Story Change afoot in Hampton City begins road to recovery BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The latest news from Hampton includes the announcement of two more resignations last week and the official launch of a criminal investigation into the citys government. The city has been given a reprieve by lawmakers to begin making changes and avoid the loss of its charter. As part of the understanding with Rep. Charles Van Zant and Sen. Rob Bradley, the city officials must be replaced. At a special meeting March 6, acting Mayor Myrtice McCullough announced the resignations of the city attorney, John Maines, and Councilman Charles Hall, the husband of former City Clerk Jane Hall, who was heavily scrutinized by a state audit of the citys finances and operations. Charles Halls resignation was a reluctant one, although he has been missing from council meetings since the audit report was released. Hall said his departure was in response to the talk of dissolving the city. Rep. Van Zant may have the best of intentions in his demands, but it seems to me he is still removing the voice of the people in Hampton. A true plan to reorganize should be a plan developed by the city and the local citizens, Hall wrote. In his place, the council, including members David Parker and Bill Goodge, appointed Dan Williams. Williams, an ordained pastor with banking experience, impressed Van Zant during Februarys legislative delegation meeting on dissolving the city. Williams appealed that the people of Hampton be given another chance, and he met with Van Zant the next day to begin outlining some of the changes the representative wanted to see. That includes calling a special election and the subsequent resignation of the other elected officials, as well as redrawing the city limits to exclude U.S. 301. The original stipulation to pull back to the original boundaries of the city has been amended, however, so Fox Hollow residents can be given the option of remaining in the city if they choose. The city still needs to find a qualified clerk (see related story) and water plant operator, sign a public safety agreement with the sheriff, and come up with a plan to cover the citys monthly expenses and pay off its debt. The 2014 Bradford County Fair opened Tuesday and will continue through Sunday, March 16. See more on the remaining dates and activities in Regional News. Present at the ribbon cutting were Sheriff Gordon Smith, Teen Miss Bradford Fest Ashley Harris, Starke Police Capt. Barry Warren, Strawberry Princess Madison Gibson, Strawberry Queen Hannah Tucker, Miss Bradford Fest Kelsey Harrison, Starke Mayor Carolyn Spooner, Bradford Fair Association Board Member Warren Carver, Tax Collector Teresa Phillips, Police Chief Jeff Johnson and Bradford Fair Association Board Member James Balkcom. Not seen: Starke Commissioner Travis Woods. Come on in ... Moore out, too! Remaining council members set to leave BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Hampton Mayor Barry Moore, who has been calling the Bradford County Jail home since his arrest on drug charges last year, has agreed to give up his position. Moore was only mayor for a few weeks when he was arrested Nov. 25, 2013, for possessing and selling Oxycodone following an investigation by the Bradford County Sheriffs Office. Florida Gov. Rick Scott promptly suspended Moore, but in light of the state audit that had legislators calling for Hamptons dissolution, Moore has submitted his resignation. It was presented and accepted at the city council meeting March 11. Moore has maintained his innocence, saying he was prescribed pain medication because of a back injury. In addition to his letter, he sent a message apologizing for any embarrassment his legal woes have caused the city. Moores arrest put Hampton in the headlines, and the release of a state audit report has kept it there. The city has been given a chance Dan Williams, an ordained pastor who has joined the Hampton City Council, talks about some of the steps necessary to get the town on track. Moore Glenn Bryan from the state for the public that there will be a criminal investigation of matters addressed in the state audit. Wagoner See TAXES, 10A See MOORE, 10A See HAMPTON, 10A

Other Florida communities also targeted BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Tuesday morning, March 11, some Lake Butler residents along West Lake Avenue south of S.R. 100 found a bag with treats on the easement in front of their house. However, inside a zip-closed bag were a couple of mints and a folded flier with the headline, Wake up WHITE AMERICA! from the Loyal White Knights, a Ku Klux Klan group based in Pelham, N.C. The mints in the bags were possibly there to entice someone to pick up a bag and/or to keep the bags from blowing away in the wind. Although the letter does not contain a specific threat to any one person, the letter is inflammatory and clearly directed as a racial message, the Union County Sheriffs Office said in a statement released later in the day. In response, UCSO is working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Fusion Center, along with the FBIs hate crimes unit. Hate crimes add an element of bias to traditional crimes and the mixture is toxic to our communities, the FBI stated on its related web page, which shows a picture of the KKK burning crosses at a rally. The Loyal White Knights claims on its website that its not a hate group, but states, we do hate some things that certain groups are doing to our race and Nation. Lake Butler hasnt been the only Florida community targeted. The sheriffs office said fliers were also distributed throughout Alachua County and other north Florida counties. WFTV Channel 9 in Central Florida reported in December that for the third time in two months, the group distributed fliers. The station said that fliers were dropped off just before members of the state NAACP arrived in Brevard County for an annual meeting. In a Volusia County neighborhood where they were distributed in November, KKK leader Robert Jones told WFTVs Ryan Hughes that the fliers were aimed at recruiting new members, not frightening anyone. You say this was a recruiting effort; however, your group targeted a predominantly black neighborhood, Hughes told Jones. Why the group would now target Lake Butler is unknown at this time. I am saddened to see that such hatred is still perpetuated here in America in 2014. These fliers just prove that there are still ignorant people who are in our society that use the name of Christianity to promote hatred, said Patrick L. Maxwell, pastor of Victory Christian Center in Lake Butler. For this organization to consider themselves Christian is ludicrous. Christianity is about embracing all cultures, nationalities and ethnicities. As a pastor of a multicultural church I pray that no one in our loving community will be duped by these hateful and ignorant fliers. On the Union County Times Facebook page, Norma Owen Wilcox posted, I would like to say, as one of the people who picked up and threw away the KKK leaflet left in my yard, I am very offended. We dont need that kind of hate trash being thrown around our neighborhoods. We have worked for a long time to have a peaceful harmony in our town, and we dont want this kind of trash in our town. Sheriff Brad Whitehead was equally dismayed. The message was from a group that is trying to spread hate in many locations throughout America, Whitehead said in the UCSO statement. The Union County Sheriffs Office will not tolerate any hate toward any minority group. We take this very serious and it is not welcomed in Union County. Anyone that has any further information about this incident should contact UCSO at 386496-2501. in a zip-locked bag containing mints. BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph Sometime around March 19, a one-acre piece of property on U.S. 301, south of Starke, will be auctioned off at the courthouse. It is one of 15 to 20 such properties currently in Bradford Countys pipeline of properties up for auction. Someone will pay the full amount of all tax certificates written on these properties, plus additional fees and percentages and a tax deed will be written. Buyers will walk away with properties assessed at anywhere from $1,400 to nearly $100,000, potentially at a bargain basement price. County Tax Collector Teresa Phillips says the number of delinquent properties up for grabs is growing. In 2013, the countys total sales of delinquent tax certificates totaled $938,351 on 1,363 parcels. Is it due to a bad economy and people not able to pay their taxes? Not necessarily. A tax lien is similar to, but isnt, a foreclosure. Tax liens are filed by federal, state or local governments. Dont pay your taxes, governments confiscate your assets. Florida Statute 197 states in part: All owners of property are held to know that taxes are due and payable annually and are responsible for ascertaining the amount of current and delinquent taxes and for paying them before April 1 of the year following the year in which taxes are assessed. It is the states way of protecting county and municipal entities, Phillips said. The county budget is based (in part) on expected revenue from ad valorem taxes. When that revenue doesnt come in, the county must take action. Florida statutes also require the tax collector, on or before June 1, to conduct a sale of tax certificates on all land on which the taxes are delinquent for the preceding year. Certificates are sold at a tax sale auction through competitive bidding. Once a prospective bidder has registered and the on-line bidding start date is reached, bidders log in and begin placing their bids. The on-line bidding start date is the first day the advertising list is published in the newspaper. Bids can be submitted anytime from this date, until midnight before the actual tax sale date. Online county tax certificate sales in Florida follow a sealed bid format in the form of proxy bidding. The auctions encourage bidders to submit the lowest percentage rate they are willing to accept on their investment to win a particular tax certificate. The minimum bid is held in confidence in the system until the end of the bidding and certificates are awarded. The system, on behalf of the bidder, will bid the percentage rate necessary to maintain the position of the low bidder. Florida law requires all bidders to see at least a five percent return on their investment. The amount of the certificate is the sum of the unpaid real estate taxes and non-ad valorem assessments, such as schools or water, plus 3 percent interest, 5 percent in costs associated with the sale and advertising charges. If the owner later pays the taxes and all related charges, the lien is canceled. If the certificate is not redeemed between two and seven years from the date of the delinquency, the certificate holder can initiate a tax deed application that may result in the original owners loss of the property. Telegraph publisher John Miller, agrees that tax auctions seem to be on the rise; he watches tax certificates and auctions advertised in this newspaper, an advertisement required by law. Phillips said the trend is not always due to economic downturn, as one might expect.

Glam and glitz were hallmarks of the fundraiser, which featured music by Circle of Friends and a New Orleansstyle buffet by David Elder. Partiers hit the dance floor early and boogied until late in the evening, forming a conga line for the bands special rendition of When the Saints Go Marching In. Womans Club President Mary Bridgman welcomed those present and gave special recognition to sponsors Mosley Trucking (desserts), Bradford County Telegraph (decorations), Capital City Bank (Photo Fun Booth) and Teal Tile (beverages). She also thanked Community State Bank and JoAnn Rowe for special donations, as well as the many individuals and local businesses who furnished the 42 items for the silent auction everything from gift certificates to mountain weekends to a largescreen TV. Door prizes were also awarded during the event. The sumptuous buffet featured shrimp and grits, gumbo, crawfish fritters, crab dip, deviled eggs, cheese and grapes, and crudits. Partiers snacked on desserts, including cheesecake and a special bananas foster cupcake. Centerpieces of green, purple and gold graced the tables, and elaborate Mardi Gras decorations hung from window facings and ceiling lights. Many guests wore colorful Mardi Gras masks or picked up one for posing at the photo fun booth. Each guest received a souvenir photo of the event. Club members Sandra Reddish, Vicki Teal, Linda Kay Johns and Linda Gillingham coordinated the silent auction, while Lisa Tatum, Jackie Morrow, Brenda Fertig and Vicki Teal handled decorations. Brenda Farnsworth and Linda Gillingham lined up the musical entertainment. The event drew more than 100 guests to the historic clubhouse on Walnut Street.

Students shared their likes, dislikes, local weather updates, favorite foods and more. Utilizing the classroom computer, an overhead projector and Internet access, the 24 students from each school and the teachers talked for just over an hour. Working in conjunction with the First A Dream Foundation, the classes have developed a plan to keep the students interactively involved via a pen pal relationship and ongoing projects. Teachers will utilize the pen pal setting to help students improve and achieve better writing skills. Students received a quick lesson in geography using a national map, visually showing the students exactly how far apart they are from one another. A discussion between New York and Florida over the current weather revealed to the students that while cool, gray, dismal, and 46 degrees in Florida it was remarkably warmer than the blue skies, sunny and 19 degrees in New York. The First A Dream Foundation focuses on elementary-aged students. The motto Nothing Extraordinary without First A Dream exemplifies the foundations desire to broaden the horizon of students utilizing the educative setting. In existence since 2001, items from 40-plus countries across five continents have been brought back to the students at Cleveland Elementary School. The origin of the item, cultural significance and other notes of interest are shared with students. Interestingly, the theme for Brooker Elementary this year has been Dream Big Dream, Do Big Things. There, children are also finding that there are significant similarities in people and schools across the nation. Following the Skype session, Brooker fourth-grader Kaleb Hinds had this to say about the session: We learned we have stuff in common. Lexus Mann said, One day, I want to go to the Statue of Liberty in New York. Mikey Outlaw said he liked that you can see the other class and talk to the other class, and they can talk to you, too. Mrs. Boukaris fourth-grade class at Brooker has 18 students. Three third-graders and three fifth-graders were invited to participate to ensure an even mix of 24 students per class. Now that the introductions are over, students will begin to work on their pen pal letters, collaborative reading assignment and their distance learning project Another Skype session will be scheduled between the classes again in the near future. Bradford Middle School and Bradford High School IT Academy students have earned Lingold, Taylor Trollinger, Sarah Warren, Jakob Alvarez, Austin Bedwell, Morgan Clayton Rhoden, Breanna Tyndall and Paxon Wise. BHS students included Christopher Cannon, Zakia Lane, Taisha McCutchen, Christopher Padilla, Matthew Sherin, Malvin Stone, Bennett Kilgore, Brenton Ruise, Ty Johnson and Lance Leukel. Returning Selection means Creighton could tour DC Bailey Creighton was selected by the faculty as their representative to participate in the Clay Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C.

The students are given the opportunity to participate in a written quiz and speech contest in Tallahassee, all expenses paid. The four students with the highest combined score will receive a weeklong, all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 14-19. Bailey is pictured with BHS Principal Bryan Boyer. Students from Brooker Elementary watch the Cleveland Elementary students go through their introductions. Kaleb Hinds and Chase Bell listen to CES students answer a question from a Brooker student concerning their cold weather in New York. Devin Calton and Zach Perkins raise their hands, requesting to be allowed to ask CES the next question. Students were permitted 20 minutes of Q&A with the other class at the end of the Skype session.

Thursday, March 13, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. I am thinking about laying sod in my yard. Is it necessary to till the soil prior to doing so? Scott McClarty, Orange Park I am glad you asked this question because I have wondered about it myselfafter the sod was already laid. The short answer is yes; the soil should be tilled and raked prior to laying sod. In addition, it is best to make sure the soil is moist. The sod provider we used told us to water the freshly laid sod twice a day for a month or more until it is established. However, the University of Florida resource I consulted (http://edis.ifas.ufl. edu/lh013) recommended keeping the sod moist for the first seven days, with brief spritzes of water two to three times a day. After that, you should water when needed and as permitted under the rules of the St. Johns River Water Management District (http:// sjrwmd.state.fl.us) that apply to your area. Special rules apply to new landscapes. Sodding is more expensive than sprigging or plugging but it produces an instant lawnobviously, the big attraction of this method. Before buying sod, you should inspect it carefully to make sure it doesnt have visible weeds or insect-stressed areas. Plant it as soon as you can after it is delivered, but if you cant get to it right away, store the sod in a cool, shady area until you are ready to plant. Sod on pallets can die in less than 48 hours during summer months. Avoid the temptation to stretch your sod by leaving spaces between the piecesfit them together as tightly as possible. If there are cracks between the pieces, fill them with cut up pieces of sod. Tamp or roll the sod to remove air pockets and make sure the roots have good contact with the underlying soil. This helps ensure that the sod will not dry out while it is becoming established. More information about sodding and other methods of establishing Florida lawns is available at the reference cited above. Good luck! Mary W. Bridgman Church Holy Mission of Jesus Christ Church 625 E.

Gov. Rick Scott said, This kind of year-after-year improvement among Floridas children shows the results of focusing on factors that help young child learn what they need to know to be ready to start kindergarten. I congratulate Floridas early childhood educators for their hard work and am proud to recommend an increase in funding to boost in the base student allocation by $100 per child for both the school-year and summer programs. This would be the first increase in the VPK student allocation in three years. Florida ranks first in the nation with regard to prekindergarten access. Close to 80 percent of Floridas four-year-oldsmore than 174,000 childrenwere enrolled in VPK in the 2012-13 program year. The program is free for children who are Florida residents and will be 4 years old by Sept. 1 of the year they would enroll. Shan Goff, executive director of the Office of Early Learning, said, Florida is a leader in early learning; we offered fouryear-olds universal access to prekindergarten ahead of other states. More importantly, we are proving this commitment works as the percentage of children completing VPK who are ready for kindergarten continues to rise each year. The results of the 2013 Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener showed that almost 82 percent of children who completed a VPK program were ready for kindergarten, compared to about 53 percent of those who did not participate in VPK. Floridas children who attended some VPK fared better than those who did not attend at all. Approximately 66 percent of those who attended some VPK were kindergarten ready. Public schools are required to give FLKRS to children within the first 30 days of kindergarten. Private kindergartens may choose to participate. Screening results help kindergarten teachers plan how they teach in their classrooms. The results are also used to calculate VPK provider kindergarten readiness rates. Beginning with the 2010-11 year, the state adopted 70 as the minimum acceptable readiness rate for a VPK provider, indicating that 70 percent of that providers students who substantially completed the program screened ready on FLKRS. Results of the screening can be viewed at www. floridaearlylearning.com.

10A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, March 13, 2014 The council will also be seeking a new attorney. In Maines resignation letter, the city attorney of approximately 20 years expressed appreciation for the opportunity, and he wrote about some of Hamptons accomplishments, including grant-funded park and housing improvements. Maines has been criticized for not doing enough to prevent alleged wrongdoing, however, including the nepotism complaints about the Hall family. Starke attorney John Cooper has volunteered to help the city on an interim basis and for no charge. Coopers government experience includes his time as a county commissioner and his ongoing school board representation. Thursday night held another surprise for those who made it to the special meeting. Glenn Bryan from State Attorney Bill Cervones office addressed the city council and public, asking for access to city hall and its records. Bryan said he met with representatives from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement about findings in the audit that have raised some red flags. Bryan said those findings would be reviewed to determine if anything criminal took place. The council gave its emergency approval, and the next day FDLE was joined by the sheriffs office and state attorneys office in taking records into evidence. Bryan couldnt say how long the investigation would take, but he said Cervone had heard the communitys concerns about what may have happened at city hall. Were working with you and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to make sure that if there was wrongdoing, someone is punished for that, he said to the applause of those at the meeting. When it comes to priorities for the council, Williams said the water department is at the top. The water department is one of two major eyesores for the city, and consequently, you always clean the worst wounds first, he said. We have got to get the water department under control. That includes discovering who is and isnt receiving city water, and who has and hasnt been paying for it. Recovering water at the meter comes first, according to Williams, and then they can address problems with the lines that may be contributing to a 46 percent loss of the water being pumped from the ground. Water is precious in this state, and we dont want to waste it, but right now revenue is job one, Williams said. Resident Joshua Davis said there is no way the water is being pumped and then just dumped on the ground somewhere. If we were losing 46 percent, Hampton Lake would be overflowing, he said, meaning the water is being used but not paid for. One resident admitted that his water bill never changed, even after filling a swimming pool twice last summer. He said he saw the meter being read, but the bill was still $28. Williams said if water is being provided, it will be metered, adding that may be a hard pill to swallow for those used to years of free water. The city will receive assistance from Florida Rural Water Association in mapping the system and its customers. Things have got to change, Williams said, acknowledging that some may not like the results. Some are worried about a rate hike, but its too soon say whether that will be necessary. The city has a few weeks to put together a plan before the next legislative delegation meeting. That will take place in Hampton, not the courthouse, likely at one of the churches. HAMPTON Continued from 1A to retain its charter, but one of the caveats is the resignation and replacement of the city officials. With that in mind the final four council membersMyrtice McCullough, Frantz Innocent, David Parker and Bill Goodge tendered their resignations on Tuesday night, setting the effective date for Oct. 14. Between now and then a special election will be held. It will be overseen by Supervisor of Elections Terry Vaughan and coincide with the state primary in August. In addition to the five council seats, the mayors position will be on the ballot as well as a referendum on whether the charter should be amended to eliminate the position of town marshal. Qualifying information will be advertised. According to McCullough, the top two votegetters in the city council race will win two-year terms. The next three most popular candidates will win one-year terms. The terms are staggered so that future elections will not involve the entire council running at once. The council also appointed its interim attorney, John Cooper, and hired its new city clerk. Amy Davis was selected from a total of three applicants and was set to begin work Wednesday, although decisions about city halls hours of operation were put off until the next council meeting. Davis has worked as the citys clerk before, from 1996-1999, and there was talk of making her position full time. One of Coopers first tasks will be to draw up an ordinance that will relinquish the citys hold on U.S. 301. The citys boundaries will continue to extend to 301, however, as the residents of Fox Hollow have indicated they wish to remain inside the city limits. It was a sometimes raucous meeting, with residents complaining about code enforcement problems and water quality, and quizzing the council about hiring a qualified water plant operator. Citizen Joyce Mitchell summed it up for everyone. With all of these new changes, are we going to see an improvement in the city of Hampton? she asked, mentioning the need for sidewalks, guardrails and lighting. The city shouldnt be worrying about holding Christmas parades and throwing Halloween parties instead of dealing with real issues, she said. Mitchell said she was born and raised down the road, and there havent been many changes in her 60 years. We would like to think were going to have some improvements, McCullough said. Dan Williams, who was appointed to replace Charles Hall on the council last week, announced that the city has been tentatively approved for a water management district grant for water tank revitalization. Williams said former clerk Christina Mobley gets the credit for applying for the $25,000 award. Its a major deal for us in the position were in right now, Williams said. The tank is due for inspection and that cost combined with any maintenance needs discovered could be paid for with the grant. In the next few days, the city will begin examining its water customer base, and Williams offered some words of advice to those who know they havent been paying for their water. This is a time when Hampton needs to pull together, he said, urging those people to come forward now before the hammer comes down. Stealing utilities is a felony, he said. If youre getting water today and you either have not gotten a bill or you have no meter, please, you need to let us know, said Williams. Hamptons next council meeting will be Tuesday, March 25, at 7 p.m. A previously called town hall meeting remains on the schedule for Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m. MOORE Continued from 1A and old age. Of the countys 237 current outstanding tax certificates, 10 property owners are listed as deceased; an additional 31 are owned by an estate. Many of the cases we have right now are heirs properties, Phillips said. Its possible, and does happen, that some coowners may not be aware that taxes are due or that taxes havent been paid. They may not even be aware that they co-own the property. Miller produced a sheaf of ads and information on 12 of 20 or so properties to go up for auction this month. Of the 12 properties, seven were owned by an estate, or the owner was listed as deceased. Taxes had been assigned to multiple owners, presumably heirs, lists of three or more people rather than a single individual or a couple. One property was located on C.R. 200B. The owner was an estate and the tax statement had been sent to an individual in Georgia, possibly the deceaseds daughter or a business representative. However, the tax assessment listed the estate, the addressee and 18 additional heirs as being responsible for paying taxes. Sometimes you inherit land you dont actually want, Miller said. If someone inherits land in Bradford County but lives elsewhere, would they want only one acre in Bradford County badly enough to pay taxes on it? Family or heirs squabbles can get in the way. Sons and daughters marry and move across the country. On the Bradford tax collectors books today are 237 certificates from 2005 to 2012, properties the county has absorbed when nobody wanted to bid on them. None of those are listed as resulting from bankruptcy. Fewer than 25 appear to be business or corporate properties; the rest appear to be owned by individuals. Forty-nine individuals and businesses own two or more properties with tax certificates written against them. Three certificates date from 2005, five from 2006, 30 from 2008, 43 from 2010, 112 from 2011 and 44 from 2012. Naturally, you would expect earlier years to reflect fewer cases as property or certificate owners clear up the liens. In Bradfords database of open tax certificates, only about half of the contacts for tax certificate properties reside in Bradford or Union counties. Around 22 percent of contacts live outside of Florida and two live outside the U.S. Just because one coowner gets the tax bill in the mail doesnt mean the addressee can or will get in touch with all the other listed heirs, or even knows them. A second example in the Bradford files involves a business couple who lived in the area some years ago but has since moved to a western state. The property in question is worth a few thousand dollars. The owners may have simply walked away from the property, because it is no longer worth their while to maintain or dispose of it through a bothersome sale in regular channels. By now, they may have bigger fish to fry elsewhere. One year after assessed taxes have not been paid, a tax certificate is issued by the tax collectors office. Of Millers 12 examples, four tax certificates were owned by PNC Bank of Tampa, seven by U.S. Bank of Dundee and one by a capital investment corporation. Why would banks want these? Miller asked. An online source, Tax Lien University, says its not at all unusual for banks and other big investors to buy up tax liens, lured by the potential for interest returns as high as 18 percent or more. In Illinois the peak interest rate allowed is over 30 percent. According to the site, Investors and Wall Street insiders spend ($7 to $10 billion dollars) each year buying tax lien certificates. Theyve also done their very best to keep the tax lien business to themselves. They have been helped by the recent turn to offering tax certificates for sale online. Banks may like to own high interest certificates without becoming property owners. Most American banks are already trying to ditch foreclosed mortgage properties as fast as they can. Why would they want to become custodians of more? Shelly Gibbs, branch manager at M&S Bank in Keystone Heights, said she assumes banks would be interested in the high interest rates, but may have no interest in owning the property unless they also hold an unpaid mortgage on it. According to the PNC Bank website, owners may mistakenly assume the bank automatically pays the taxes each year, but no escrow account was set up to do so. This especially applies to the sub-prime mortgages of a few years ago. Tax Lien University says that if the Florida tax lien certificate is not redeemed, after two years of holding a certificate but no later than seven, the certificates buyer may request and file a tax deed application. If the certificate remains unredeemed, the property is scheduled for public auction by the Clerk of Circuit Court. For non-homestead parcels, the opening bid equals delinquent property taxes, accrued interest, plus costs and fees. For homestead parcels, the opening bid is half the assessed value plus delinquent taxes, interest, fees, and costs. The highest bidder is awarded ownership of the property. Its not unheard of for one or several heirs to show up when property is auctioned, to become sole owner of the property just lost by a group of heirs, Phillips said. That could be less expensive and complicated than trying to negotiate with all other heirs and buy from each of them one share at a time. Assistant Clerk Lisa Brannon at the Bradford Clerk of the Courts office said after the tax collector sends an affidavit stating that a property is to be auctioned the clerks office notifies owners, lien and mortgage holders and other interested parties. The date and time of the auction is advertised in the Telegraphs legal notices. The owner may redeem the property by paying taxes and fees at the last minute and the sale is stopped, Brannon said. It may also happen that no one shows up for the sale. In this case, the tax certificate holder pays the opening bid, additional court costs and filing fees and gets the property. If additional bidders show up, the property goes to the highest bidder. Before readers withdraw their IRA funds and head for the courthouse, be advised: there are caveats. A tax deedthe deed you get if an auctioned property is turned over to youmay be what Phillips called a cloudy deed. That is, it may not be entirely clean and can come with complications. Theres no guarantee an heir wont show up later with claims the property is rightly theirs. The cost of title searches and legal fees could become an issue. Tax Lien University also cautions its students to avoid worthless properties, federal tax liens, bad neighborhoods, bankruptcies, costly environmental issues and uninsurable titles. The prospective tax certificate investor should also be prepared to navigate competitive markets, says Tax Lien University. Bradfordtaxcollector.com has several pages devoted to delinquency, the sale of tax certificates and auctions. For a helpful overview on the subject, visit www.taxlienuniversity.com. ROAD Continued from 2A wouldnt be paying for services like animal control that the county has the power to deny them. If the city moves forward with a study of the countys and its own tax structure, it could change the approach to taxation as well as interlocal agreements between the city and county. No longer will the discussion be about the city asking the county for support in paying for one service, or the county requiring a municipal surcharge in exchange for providing another service. What happens to tax bills after the study remains to be seen. Citizens of Starke could see their county tax bill reduced for services they are no longer required to pay for. That reduction could be offset if the city raises its levy in order to replace or provide new services. Sanders said the study could also come back to haunt the city if it turns out, for instance, that the county can provide full law enforcement services to the city for less money that it costs to run the police department. That could revive calls to consolidate the department with the sheriffs office or simply turn over law enforcement responsibilities to the sheriff. Regardless, the taxpayers should benefit, Sanders said. The county has never broken down it what our (tax revenue) is doing, Commissioner Wilbur Waters said. Where is it going? Thats what everyone sitting here wants to know and cannot get that answer. Sanders said its not that the county is being unscrupulous. The matter just hasnt been approached in this way before. But there is precedent set by other cities asking the same questions, and when necessary, taking legal action. Commissioner Travis Woods said, as it was explained to him, the county spends its money out of one big pot, but he wants more accountability since the county isnt on a shoestring budget as the city is. They dont have to pinch their pennies the way we do, Woods said. Commissioner Tommy Chastain said it comes down to fair collection and appropriation of tax dollars. Mayor Carolyn Spooner said these are reasonable questions the city commission is asking. Its a fair question. Its not necessarily that were fighting with them, she said. Its not about going to war with the county, Woods said, but about protecting the citys interests. The next step is finding a consultant capable of conducting the study. The cost of such an analysis is uncertain. TAXES Continued from 1A Church promoting Wild Game Dinner Old Providence Baptist Church is holding a free Wild Game Dinner for the entire community on Saturday, March 15, from 5-7:30 p.m. There will be various entrees including, but not limited to, deer, gator tail, game birds and fish.

traded his Scouting uniform for one provided by Uncle Sam, Vaughan said. He joined the U.S. Army as a member of the 88 th Infantry Division. He was stationed in the Alps in northern Italy and was part of the Armys ski troops. After his honorable discharge in 1947, Register enrolled at the University of Florida, where he earned a bachelors degree in education. Then, the start of what Vaughan described as a legendary career in both education and coaching. He was the Bradford High School head football coach from 1955 through 1961. The team won five straight Keystone Conference championships, had a 32-game winning streak and appeared in two Strawberry Bowl games during that time. Register was selected as the head coach of the North All-Star team in 1961 and was recognized as the Gainesville Suns Coach of the Year in three consecutive seasons. In 1961, Register left Bradford and took the head coaching position at Bay High School in Panama City. He was successful there as well, leading the team to two Big Five Conference championships during a sevenyear period. He was also named as coach of the North All-Star BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Casey Jones, one of the survivors of the 2009 U.S. Airways flight that crashed into the Hudson River, encouraged the assembled crowd at the Florida National Guard armory in Starke to embrace life and all that it has to offer. The Feb. 27 Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council American Values Dinner honored Lennard Register, an individual who has done just that, and in the process embraced the youth in the community by pledging approximately $14,000 to support local Boy Scouts. Jones, the events keynote speaker, certainly has a thrilling, emotional story to tell (see related story), but even he admitted it was hard to follow Register, who was presented with the Boy Scouts Distinguished Citizen Award. Its an honor to be on the same dais as you, Jones told Register, a former Bradford County educator, administrator and coach. I really do appreciate it. Its truly an honor to hear a man of your accomplishments and to hear what youve done. He may have been the evenings honoree, but Registers first comment was to thank those in attendance for their support of Boy Scoutsan organization dear to his heart. Registers father was a Scoutmaster for 22 years, with 32 Scouts attaining the rank of Eagle Scout under his leadership. One of those Eagle Scouts was Register, who was the first-ever Scout for Troop 98 in Jasper to attain that rank. Id like to say thank you for coming and being a part of giving a boost to Scouting, said Register, who also earned a Bronze Palm during his time in the Boy Scouts. America needs Scouting bad, particularly in this day and time. Terry Vaughan, one of the dinners host committee members, spoke at length about Register, who was born in Valdosta, Ga., and grew up in Hamilton County.

team again, making him the first coach to have earned that honor twice. Then, it was time for another change. Always willing to follow the path where faith led him, he uprooted his family and moved to Clinton, Miss., in 1968 in order to earn his masters degree in education from Mississippi College, Vaughan said. Vaughan said it had to have taken courage to do that at the age of 40, but if it made Register nervous, it didnt show. While going through classes at Mississippi College, Register also coached defensive backs for the schools football team and also was the head coach of the baseball team. As if that wasnt enough, Vaughan added, The student body also voted him Sexiest Man on Campus. Once he completed work on his masters Register moved back to Bradford County and worked in the school system. Register served as the principal of Hampton Elementary School (1969-72), the principal of Bradford Middle School (197375) and the director of operations in charge of maintenance, transportation and warehousing (1975-90). Register has been involved with such groups as the Rotary Club of Starke and Community Mens Fellowship, and is a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Starke, where he has served as a deacon. He and his wife of 61 years, Ernestine, have three childrenLen, Steve and Chuckseven grandchildren that neither engine was working. Passengers eventually heard Sullenberg say, This is the captain. Embrace for impact. Ill tell you this, when you hear those words, an awful lot of stuff starts to go through your mind, Jones said. Your mind goes into hyperdrive, and thats exactly what mine did that day. Jones took out his phone so he could call his wife, Judy. She was on another flight with their son, so Jones said he was prepared to leave her an I love you message. His fingers were shaking so badly, he couldnt punch in the password to access the phone. At that point, I could only hope she knew how much I loved her, Jones said. Jones assumed crash position as flight attendants repeatedly told passengers to keep their heads down and brace for impact. He looked up periodically, though, to look out the window to see how close the plane was to the river, while his mind was consumed with thoughts on his family and what the outcome would be. I never in my own mind admitted I was about to die, Jones said, but I knew it was a possibility. I thought about my family. What would life be like for them? What would their future hold? How is all this going to end? The impact caused Jones face to hit his tray table, while the sudden sound of rushing water was comparable to standing at Niagara Falls and removing earplugs. It was really loud, Jones said. Passengers began disembarking in an orderly fashion. Jones said it was reminiscent of lining up for a fire drill in grade school. Passengers the left side of the plane. It was a seat he always tried to get when flying out of LaGuardia because of the views of Manhattan, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty it offered after takeoff. Jones described the takeoff as smooth, but as he began to settle in and relax, he heard a sound he described as a pop. He likened it to being downstairs in a two-story house and hearing someone on the upper floor drop a 50-pound stack of books. It was a different sound and a different feel, Jones said. All those times I had flown before, I heard things and felt things, but this was different. The plane lost momentum, and Jones noticed the engine right outside his window was making a sound he equated to sneakers in a dryer. As the plane began descending, Jones wondered to himself why the pilot didnt fire the right engine, not knowing at that time what had happened and which was when the plane was scheduled to take off, but Jones said, In LaGuardia, thats an ontime flight. Jones described himself as a restful baby in a car seat once he took his seat in 7A. Again, nothing out of the ordinary for the man who said he had flown hundreds of times. I could just sit there and relax and eventually fall asleep once we took off, Jones said. His seat was by the window on 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, March 13, 2014 (352)473-9873 N OW OPEN BBQ Burgers Steaks Salads Soups 7154 S.E.

PEABOD Y & SHERMANN ON-STOP BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Surviving a plane crash would seem like a nightmare that most people would be more than happy to put behind them, but Casey Jones cant ignore the positive effect the crash he survived has had on his life. Jones had a positive outlook on life before the crash, but his appreciation of life is so much more in the aftermath. If he could take away the anxiety his family and friends suffered during those moments where the outcome was uncertain, Jones said he would go through his own anxiety and fears all over again. The outlook that it has given me on life is absolutely unbelievable, and Id never have had it without having gone through this, Jones said. Jones, the keynote speaker at the Feb. 27 Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council American Values Dinner at the Florida National Guard armory in Starke, was one of the passengers in what has become known as the Miracle on the Hudson. On Jan. 15, 2009, U.S. Airways Flight 1549 lost both of its engines after striking geese shortly after takeoff from New York Citys LaGuardia Airport. Capt. Chesley Sully Sullenberger made the decision to bring the plane down into the Hudson, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew. What I encourage you to do this evening is sit back, relax and embrace for impact, Jones told the crowd before sharing his story. It was a typical Thursday for the Bank of America executive who was used to flying. Jones was traveling back and forth between his home in Jacksonville and New York City three times a month at that time. Passengers boarded the flight at 2:45, Hudson River plane crash survivor: Embrace life Casey Jones See JONES, 3B HONOR Continued from 1B and two great-grandchildren. Its a story of a life well lived, Vaughan said. Along the way, he earned many cherished titles: Eagle Scout, risk-taker, pioneer, educator, husband, father, grandfather, mentor, Christian and patriot. By the time Register took to the stage to accept the Distinguished Citizen Award following Vaughans introduction, he joked, I had a great speech made out and worked on it day and night, but Terry Vaughan took it away from me. Register thanked his family for being there to support him, mentioning the fact that his son, Chuck, and his family traveled from North Carolina. Chucks daughter returned to the U.S. approximately a month ago after a two-year stay in China working with the International Mission Board. What a great lady, Register said. Another great lady, of course, is Registers wife. He thanked her and made light of their long partnership. Sixty-one years, Register said. Can you believe that? Sixty-one years. She told me what to do, and then turned around and told me how to do it. In all serious, Register said, She was the most important thing that ever happened to me, outside of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is number one, and my wife is number two. The American Values Dinner received support in the form of table hosts Vaughan, Jeff Oody, John Palmer, Scott Roberts, Tom Smith and dinner chairman Barry Warren. Rowe Enterprises was a table sponsor. Through their effort, the dinner not only had quite a crowd, but resulted in the total donation of $14,100, which exceeded the goal of $9,000. Tonights event helps provide safe, quality programs for nearly 1,000 Scouts and leaders, Warren said. Included in this is a number of underprivileged youth who would otherwise not be in Scouting. Your gifts will provide books and uniforms, and will help send them to summer camp along with (taking care of) many other expenses to benefit these children.

exited the plane and entered 20-degree temperatures with a wind chill of 11 degrees. The water of the Hudson was 35 degrees. Jones spent the next 17 minutes on one of the planes wings. We were in the middle of the river in the most populated city in America, and we felt very, very alone, he said. That was the time to attempt another phone call, knowing it wouldnt take long for news of the crash to air on television, Jones said. His wife was on a plane; his oldest daughter was in the midst of an interview. That left his 20-year-old daughter, who was a student at the University of Central Florida. He called her to let her know he was OK and to pass information along to the rest of the family. That was the hardest phone call Ive ever had to make in my life, Jones said, but she did absolutely everything perfectly that day. Jones then tried to reach his mother, who was 80 and rarely left her home. However, she didnt pick up the phone. Jones was left with making a decision. Should he leave a message on her answering machine? He decided to do just that, saying that in his mind he thought he sounded calm and collected. Well, Jones tried calling his mother twice after that, leaving messages both times. The third call and message was after he was rescued. Jones said he was thankful his mother didnt listen to the messages until after his rescue. The calm and collected voice he thought he was using was not in existence on either of the first two messages. There was utter panic that a mother can see right through, Jones said. By the time she listened to that third message, she knew I was safe. Before that third call, Jones had to get off the planes wing. He wound up being the last person rescued. When his turn finally came to grab the ladder of a New York Waterway ferry, Jones slipped and fell into the water.

The Toppings will reside in Pinellas County. The wedding was officiated by Rev. William R. Topping Jr., pastor emeritus at Norwood Baptist Church in St. Petersburg. Jenkins, Topping marry Mrs. and Mr. Topping Socials JONES Continued from 2B My life jacket came off over my head, Jones said. You know when they tell you about that strap around the middle of the life jacket? Thats a very important step. Jones surfaced almost as soon as he plunged into the river, thinking to himself, Im not going out like this. As he grabbed the boat ladder a second time, he discovered that his legs didnt want to work. The ladder had ice on it, and it felt like he was trying to climb up it sideways, Jones said. Halfway up, he announced he could go no farther. Fellow passenger Gerry McNamara reached down and grabbed hold of Jones belt to help him finish the climb. When he grabbed my belt, it gave me the confidence to take that last couple of steps and get up on the desk and be rescued. That was the first time I knew I was going to be OK, and it was the first time I acknowledged how cold I was. I hit the deck of that boat, and I shivered for the next four hours. Upon arrival at Weehawken Terminal, the boat captain removed Jones shirt and tie. Meanwhile, a deckhand was removing his layers of clothing, which included a hooded sweatshirt had gave to Jones to wear. He literally gave me the clothes off his back so I could start to try to get warm, Jones said. Inside the terminal, New York Waterway employees began grabbing clothes out of employee lockers to give to the plane passengers. Jones said he was given a shirt that was about a size too small, but it was dry and warm. Then, someone brought him a pair of pants that were too small. A second pair of pants was given to Jones. They were approximately six sizes too big. Jones still has the pants, which he and his family refer to as the Jared pants, in reference to the Subway spokesman. Though too big, he put them on and kept them up with a belt. From the terminal, Jones was taken to a Red Cross shelter. While watching the TV there, Jones learned that everyone on the plane survived. That was a tremendous amount of relief to hear that, he said. Jones and other passengers were put up in hotels. It was there that Jones looked into the mirror for the first time since the crash. What he saw was a man wearing several articles of clothing that didnt fit him with a cut on his head and hard that went every which way. The image that I saw staring back at me was that of a homeless person, Jones said. It gave me a compassion for the homeless that I never, never, never wouldve had without seeing that and going through this experience. Its one of the many, many gifts Ive received because of this. Before the crash, Jones would wake up every morning and tell himself he was going to have a great day. Now, he said he wakes every morning knowing for sure its going to be a great day. Ill still have trials and tribulations, Jones said, but every day is a great day. Jones urged those in attendance at the armory to stop and take note of everything around them. Enjoy the sights and smells of life, and treasure those moments, he said. More importantly, he said, is to never stop telling your loved ones that you love them. You see, its clich to say everything we have can end in just a moment, Jones said, but its not clich to make the most of each and every moment each and every day. When you leave tonight, commit to embrace your dreams, embrace your goals, embrace your families and embrace your friends. Embrace every piece of life that is you. You see, on Jan. 15, 2009, at 3:31 p.m., Capt. Sullenberger said, Brace for impact. What Im encouraging you to do tonight is embrace for impact. Itll change your life.

Van Zant meant when he said that paying his speeding ticket fine from Hampton had nothing to do with the investigation of the city. Would that have happened had he not gotten the ticket? Several times during the recent legislative meeting at the Bradford courthouse, he stated that one did not have anything to do with the other. Now, is that really the truth? Now, just how many other legislative investigations has he initiated? This is not to say that an investigation was not necessary, but why did he insist that one had nothing to do with the other? It would seem to this old, county boy that had we had a representative or senator that was worth his salt, they would have stepped in and said we know you need help, and we are going to find it for you. As big as this state is, one would think that there are enough high-dollar people in government to get three or four that could be spared to get a little, old place like Hampton up and running. We are supposed to send people to Tallahassee that work with us, not against us. Malcolm Hill Morgan Road Wheres the help for Hampton? Dear Editor: I would like to answer the question posed by The Concerned Citizens of Union County. Do the citizens have any say in who fills the position of sheriff? The answer is a resounding YES. The citizens of Union County select their sheriff every four years. For the past 60-plus years, the majority of the citizens selected John H. Whitehead and Jerry Whitehead to serve as our sheriffs. Due to the untimely passing of Sheriff Jerry Whitehead, the appointment process was used by the governor as directed by statute. The governor can appoint anyone to fill the remainder of a term until the next election. The appointment process is not that different from an election. It appears that, by far, the majority of those calling, writing or emailing the governor supported Brad Whitehead to serve the remainder of his fathers term. The next election will be November of this year, and People have a voice; get out and vote everyone can support, work for and vote for the candidate of their choice. I encourage everyone to participate. I would also encourage everyone to be civil in their actions and words. I believe the citizens of Union County can participate in the election process without the use of vile language and the use of negative, unsubstantiated allegations. Again, get engaged, participate and vote your choice. Its the American way and the Union County way. Thank You, Jack Sapp Dear Editor: A few weeks ago I received a call on a Saturday evening from a Starke resident whose granddaughter (approximately 2 years old) was hysterical because of a kitten that had followed them home and was injured. The caller told me that the kittens leg was broken and that you could see bone. Any time I hear a story like that I have to go. I took a carrier with me and went to check on this kitten with every intention of taking the injured kitten to an emergency clinic and ending its suffering. As I got out of the car and walked up to the kitten I saw that is was a Russian Blue. It couldnt have bee more than 7 or 8 weeks old. But it was curled up beside a truck tire and I could see the bone and could also smell the infection in the wound. I carefully picked up the kitten and realized that its leg wasnt just broken it was almost completely severed. I drove to Gainesville to Affiliated Pet Emergency Services to have the kitten examined with the car windows open so that I could stand the smell. As I drove I tried to observe the kitten and noticed that it didnt seem to be bothered by the leg and just calmly laid in the carrier during the whole ride. As I was filling out the paperwork on the kitten I was asked for its name. I didnt know at this time whether it was a boy or girl so I named it Blue. After a brief exam the Veterinarian told me that he didnt know how the injury occurred but that it was about a week old. That meant that the little kitten was probably out in the bitterly cold, wet weather that we had just had. I knew that the smart and humane thing to do would have been to euthanize the little kitten but she had tried so hard to stay alive that I couldnt do it. The Veterinarian didnt want to do it either. They Story of a little girl who saved a kitten cleaned her wound, snipped off the dangling part of the leg and bandaged her up. I had already contacted my Veterinarian about the amputation and was scheduled to take her for that procedure on the following Monday. Since then Blue has had her leg amputated and she is doing well. She has gone from being happy to be held all of the time to wanting to run around and play. I think how lucky she is that she followed that little girl home. The little girls intense emotional reaction compelled her parents and grandmother to find someone to help the kitten. I hope that this little girl keeps that ability to feel so strongly compassionate for other living things as she grows up. I hope that she is not changed by a world that doesnt value all life. Tracy George Founder/President Supporters of Sheltered Animals Inc. Dear Editor: Did you know that it will soon be against the law to rid your area of stray cats that hang out on your property? Clay County commissioners have just approved the TNR program which means trap, neuter, and release, and release means back into your area. This program relieves the county of having to pay for euthanizing the growing number of stray cats, but it does not relieve the individual property owner of having to live with wild stray cats. One may get into an endless debate with those who support such a movement which is not the purpose of this letter. We all have different opinions about politics, religion, guns, etc. But we still have the freedom to be either Democrat or Republican, Christian or Atheist, own a gun or not own a gun. I would just like to have the freedom to be able to rid my property of wild stray cats by humanely trapping them Reader wants property to be stray-cat free and taking them to the county animal facility without having it returned to my area. We have county animal control persons who take responsibility for picking up stray dogs. In our nation, thousands of good dogs are euthanized daily. We also have state wildlife control persons who take responsibility for wildife. Stray wild cats are not native wildlife. They are wild descendants of pet cats. I was on the board of my countys Animal Rescue League in the state of Ohio for eight years. I have spent a lot of time and money in my lifetime trying to find homes for stray pets. The fact is that there are only so many homes out there open for pets, and of those homes, there are only so many that are willing to care for their pets responsibly. Most no kill animal shelters I have contacted tell me that they are sorry but they have no more room for an extra pet. This is a fact of life. I am certainly for organizations that encourage and help pet owners spay and neuter their pets, both cats and dogs. Just dont force me to conform to a movement that demands that I live with stray wild cats. Rosemary Hyslop Keystone Heights

allowed it to return to the bed. A week later, Morrell was back on Kingsley Lake and landed the 14-pounder. It was 27.75 inches long with a 21-inch girth. Various formulas used for estimating bass weights project a bass with those dimensions weighing between 13.5 and 16.2 pounds, further substantiating the catch. This is now the biggest bass of TrophyCatch season two, and we are right in the middle of peak fishing time for big bass so the challenge is on. Fishing has been awesome this spring, Morrell said. Im so glad that I could get these documented and then release the females alive right back on their beds. Next weekend, on March 15, Im putting on a Relay for Life fishing tournament on Lake Santa Fe to support the fight against cancer, but will be back fishing myself as soon as possible. TrophyCatch is FWCs premier angler-recognition program that encourages anglers who catch largemouth bass weighing more than 8 pounds to photo-document them on a scale showing the entire fish and its weight. Once documented, a fish must be live-released in the same water system from which it was caught. In return for documenting and releasing these big female bass that typically are at least 8 years old and relatively rare, the FWCs partners provide valuable rewards. FWC posts the images on the TrophyCatchFlorida. com website and provide a fullcolor certificate and club decal. Corporate partners provide additional incentives. For more information, visit www.trophycatchflorida.com and follow www.facebook.com/ trophycatchflorida. Joseph Brooks Morrell recently reported three huge bass that he caught, documented, released and entered in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions TrophyCatch program. These included the second and third Hall of Fame entries for the programs second season (Oct. 1, 2013-Sept. 30, 2014). The bass weighed 13 pounds, 12 ounces, and 14 pounds, 9 ounces, and were caught March 1 and 8, respectively. The third bass he caught on March 9 weighed 11 pounds, 13 ounces. All three of his trophy bass were caught sight-fishing with a soft, plastic Berkley crawfish bait on Lake Kingsley in Clay County. Morrell grew up fishing in Florida and then spent six years in the U.S. Air Force security forces prior to returning to Florida to become a law enforcement officer in Bradford County. On March 1, he located the 13-pounder on a bed guarded by a male. After working the male off the bed, he landed her using the artificial crawfish bait and called the FWC. Conservation officers Jason Bryant and Christiane Larosa were able to help measure the bass and even photographed its successful release, which Thursday, March 13, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 7B NO W ENROLLING FOR 2014/2015!

Fins, Fur & Tails Jim Lewis says the most common advice given by good outdoor cooks it to master the elements of time, temperature and smoke. Selecting your wood smoke should be an easy decision if you just decide to use a mild wood like oak until you can get your time and temperature down. Lewis indicates that the real challenge of outdoor cooking is to learn to regulate and vary your time and temperature. Different types of meat have different demands upon time and temperature. For example, lean meats like steaks require a high temperature and fast cook time. On the other hand, meats with more fat content, like pork shoulders, should be cooked at low temperatures for a longer time. Low and slow is the common description of the time and temperature necessary for smoking pork. Despite the necessary variations of time and temperature, all grilled or smoked meats should be initially seared. In other words, they should be browned on all sides with a high temperature. The searing process ensures that the meat will not loose all of its internal moisture. Lewis says that an old timer can look at the meat and tell a lot about it. How far rib meat recedes from the tip of the bones will provide an indicator of how well it is cooked. Some people can also tell how well done a steak or pork butt is by its firmness or softness. It takes some experience, however, to collect that knowledge, and until that has occurred, the outdoor cook needs a timer and the right thermometers. Most grills have thermometers mounted on them, and they will provide a good general temperature. Sometimes the temperature on the cooking surface might vary, and there are thermometers that can lie on the cooking surface and provide that information. Perhaps the most important thermometer, Lewis says, is the meat thermometer preferably a digital meat thermometer. Because the cooking temperature can vary so much, the internal meat temperature is the most valid and consistent indicator of how well done the meat is. The internal temperature should always be taken at the deepest and thickest point of the cut. Poultry and pork should always reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit for safety purposes. Incidentally, if you plan to buy thermometers for smoking and/ or grilling and will be frying a turkey, remember to get a thermometer to measure your oil temperature. Outdoors outlook Spring is on our doorstep. Frogs will soon be laying eggs that will shortly turn into tadpoles. Youth turkey days (March 8-9) are nearly here, and spring turkey season will follow on March 15. Snakes and other reptiles will soon be crawling. Purple martins and hummingbirds will be returning from Latin and South America. Meanwhile, our winter birds will soon be gone. Joey Tyson says the crappie bite is waning, and more people are fishing bass beds in the shallows. The next month or so will be the best opportunity for trophy bass in North Florida, and no one has to remind Brooks Morrell, who recently entered two fish he caught in Kingsley Lake into the Hall of Fame of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions TrophyCatch program. (See accompanying press release and photo.) Ed Allen says the bass action in Sampson is also good at this time. Last week, Allen landed a 7-plus-pound bass on a 10inch Tequila Sunrise Culprit worm. The week prior to that, he and Keith Starling caught approximately 50 bass, including quite a few females. Obviously, most of those were released. Tight lines until next week.

Tristan Starling had a perfect night at the plate and drove in three runs in the Keystone Heights High School baseball teams 4-0 win over District 5-4A opponent P.K. Yonge on March 7 in Gainesville. Starling, who was 4-for-4 with a double and a triple, drove in two of his runs as part of a threerun first inning. Kyle Hix drove in a run, while Storm Miller was 2-for-3 with a double. The Indians (4-4, 2-2) got a complete game from pitcher Morgan Bass, who gave up two hits and struck out eight to earn the win. Prior to playing P.K. Yonge, the Indians hosted district opponent Fort White on March 4, losing 4-3. Keystone was held to four hits, with Hix and Blake Richardson each driving in a run. Dean Dukes pitched the final four innings, giving up just one hit. The Indians played Buchholz this past Tuesday and will host Williston on Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m. On Friday, March 14, Keystone will travel to play district opponent Bradford at 7 p.m. Keystone returns home on Tuesday, March 18, to play P.K. Yonge at 7 p.m. for the first time as a Webber player, Wiggins said the moment will be like going back in time. (Itll) probably be something to the effect of the way I felt when I stepped onto the high school field my freshman year, Wiggins said. Its that new feeling of, All right, Im a freshman. Ive got to earn my way up here. Davis believes Wiggins has found a school that will be a good fit for her. I think shes going to do a great job there, Davis said. I think they have a good program. Shell have an opportunity to go in and play early and flourish. I think people see her working hard, and it makes them work hard, Davis said. Wiggins said that hard work will continue. For example, she subscribes to the belief that in order to become a better hitter, youve got to take 300 swings a day. Hitting will be one area where shell have to improve in as the level of pitching a player faces day in and day out is much higher at the collegiate level, Davis said. Wiggins, though, is focused on her overall game. Theres always room for improvement, she said. As for stepping onto the field 12B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, March 13, 2014 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School senior Lindsey Wiggins signed a letter of intent on March 5 to play softball at Webber International University in Babson Park. Its something Ive always wanted to doget my education and play the sport I love to play, Wiggins said. Its been a dream of mine since I was little. Im so glad Ive finally accomplished that. Wiggins, who plays first base, had been looking at several schools, but she said Webber just felt right. She described the people there as down to earth and talked of how the campus had a hometown feel. When I went on my visit to Webber, I pulled up, and it was right off a two-lane road, Wiggins said. It was very small, and everybody there just felt like family almost. I looked out in the parking lot, and there were a bunch of pickup trucks. I was like, You know what? My truck belongs here, too. Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said Wiggins, who has been a starter since her freshman year, has put in the effort necessary to get better and earn this opportunity. She is one of the hardest workers we have, he said. Shes also extremely tough. Shes not afraid to get hit by a pitch and do whatever is necessary to get on base to help our team. Shes a very unselfish player. Davis said Wiggins has been a leader as she is one of just three seniors on this years team. Bradford Highs Wiggins to play softball at Webber International Starling drives in 3 runs in 4-0 Indians win Keystone Heights picked up its second District 5-4A win in softball, defeating host Fort White 8-7 win on March 7. The Indians (3-6, 2-3) had two three-run innings, including one in which Brooke Tussinger hit a fly ball to right field with the bases loaded. The Fort White fielder lost the ball in the lights, which allowed all three base runners to score. Taylor Morris and Breanna Wells were 2-for-3 and 2-for4, respectively. One of Wells hits was a double, while Kristen Wood hit a triple and scored two runs. CeCe Buckley and Kaitlan Shepard each scored two runs as well. Pitcher Brittany Schelpepper earned the win. Keystone played Clay this past Tuesday and will travel to play Fleming Island on Thursday, March 13, at 4 p.m. On Tuesday, March 18, the Indians travel to play district opponent Santa Fe at 7 p.m. KHHS gets 1-run win over Fort White Bradford High School senior Lindsey Wiggins, seated between parents Stefanie and Lance Wiggins, signs a letter of intent to play softball at Webber International University.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Local authorities have helped capture an alleged murderer and arsonist sought by Duval County. The Bradford County Sheriffs Office and the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office announced last week that Randal William Wagoner had been arrested. According to BCSO Capt. Brad Smith, JSO detectives have been working on the case for several months to develop the probable cause necessary to seek an arrest warrant. They caught up with Wagoner at the Timbuktu Lounge in Starke on the afternoon of March 6. The 45-year-old suspect did not resist being taken into custody, but he refused to answer questions. Wagoners arrest report lists his home address as Raiford in Union County. Wagoner is charged with first-degree arson and the second-degree murder of Kathy Lorraine Johnson, 43. Firefighters responded to a fire at Greybeards Tavern on Commonwealth Avenue in Jacksonville on the afternoon of Dec. 1, 2013. After firefighting personnel extinguished the fire, a deceased victim was discovered. Foul play was not suspected until a medical examiner determined Johnson died prior to the fire of blunt force trauma. JSO Assistant Chief Chris Butler said Wagoner was the last person seen with the victim. He said Wagoner admitted he was with Johnson, but denied causing her any harm or starting the fire. A combination of witness testimony and forensic evidence has allegedly proven otherwise, although the exact motive was unclear. Butler said the victim lived above the bar and the she and Wagoner knew each other. There may have been an agreement to exchange sex for drugs, but Butler said they dont believe that actually took place. Wagoner was in the Bradford County Jail until March 10, when he was extradited to Jacksonville. Bond was set at more than $500,000. Starke calling for fair, accountable taxationBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Starke City Commission talked more during a workshop last week about its plan to analyze the collection and use of the countys tax revenue to determine what the people of Starke are getting for their money. City attorney Paul Sanders said the process that is being undertaken is about making sure the tax burden is equitably assigned. The city commission cant expect to get a check from the county when all is said and done, but taxpayers could see a difference in their annual bill, he said. City commissioners have been asking the county for a breakdown of where its property tax revenue goes. They were told about the basic assignment of a portion of the tax levy to the general fund, fines and forfeitures, emergency medical services, and the health department, but the information doesnt get any more specific. The county general fund, for example, covers a number of departments, and around 7 mills of the tax levy is deposited there. How much of that 7 mills goes to each service has not been calculated, let alone how much of that 7 mills is from the city or benefits the city specifically. With more and more talk over the years about who is paying for what, and why, the city commission wants answers to these questions. Instead of a blanket 9.1789 mill levy county wide, Sanders said the countys levy should be divided by service, with municipalities given the option of whether or not to opt in. The county would set up municipal service tax units for law enforcement, roads, fire service, etc., and the millage would be split among those services. A citizens tax bill would then reflect only those services they should actually be paying for. Sanders said with this information, the city could analyze whether or not it was more cost effective for citizens to pay the county for fire protection, for example, or whether they were better off with the city fire department. Either way, citizens wouldnt be taxed twice for the same service. And, Sanders said, the citizens of Starke Out with the oldINSIDE: Scouts Honor Register Flight Survivor Shares His Story Change afoot in HamptonCity begins road to recovery BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The latest news from Hampton includes the announcement of two more resignations last week and the official launch of a criminal investigation into the citys government. The city has been given a reprieve by lawmakers to begin making changes and avoid the loss of its charter. As part of the understanding with Rep. Charles Van Zant and Sen. Rob Bradley, the city officials must be replaced. At a special meeting March 6, acting Mayor Myrtice McCullough announced the resignations of the city attorney, John Maines, and Councilman Charles Hall, the husband of former City Clerk Jane Hall, who was heavily scrutinized by a state audit of the citys finances and operations. Charles Halls resignation was a reluctant one, although he has been missing from council meetings since the audit report was released. Hall said his departure was in response to the talk of dissolving the city. Rep. Van Zant may have the best of intentions in his demands, but it seems to me he is still removing the voice of the people in Hampton. A true plan to reorganize should be a plan developed by the city and the local citizens, Hall wrote. In his place, the council, including members David Parker and Bill Goodge, appointed Dan Williams. Williams, an ordained pastor with banking experience, impressed Van Zant during Februarys legislative delegation meeting on dissolving the city. Williams appealed that the people of Hampton be given another chance, and he met with Van Zant the next day to begin outlining some of the changes the representative wanted to see. That includes calling a special election and the subsequent resignation of the other elected officials, as well as redrawing the city limits to exclude U.S. 301. The original stipulation to pull back to the original boundaries of the city has been amended, however, so Fox Hollow residents can be given the option of remaining in the city if they choose. The city still needs to find a qualified clerk (see related story) and water plant operator, sign a public safety agreement with the sheriff, and come up with a plan to cover the citys monthly expenses and pay off its debt.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Hampton Mayor Barry Moore, who has been calling the Bradford County Jail home since his arrest on drug charges last year, has agreed to give up his position. Moore was only mayor for a few weeks when he was arrested Nov. 25, 2013, for possessing and selling Oxycodone following an investigation by the Bradford County Sheriffs Office. Florida Gov. Rick Scott promptly suspended Moore, but in light of the state audit that had legislators calling for Hamptons dissolution, Moore has submitted his resignation. It was presented and accepted at the city council meeting March 11. Moore has maintained his innocence, saying he was prescribed pain medication because of a back injury. In addition to his letter, he sent a message apologizing for any embarrassment his legal woes have caused the city. Moores arrest put Hampton in the headlines, and the release of a state audit report has kept it there. The city has been given a chance Dan Williams, an ordained pastor who has joined the Hampton City Council, talks about some of the steps necessary to get the town on track.

Other Florida communities also targetedBY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Tuesday morning, March 11, some Lake Butler residents along West Lake Avenue south of S.R. 100 found a bag with treats on the easement in front of their house. However, inside a zip-closed bag were a couple of mints and a folded flier with the headline, Wake up WHITE AMERICA! from the Loyal White Knights, a Ku Klux Klan group based in Pelham, N.C. The mints in the bags were possibly there to entice someone to pick up a bag and/or to keep the bags from blowing away in the wind. Although the letter does not contain a specific threat to any one person, the letter is inflammatory and clearly directed as a racial message, the Union County Sheriffs Office said in a statement released later in the day. In response, UCSO is working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Fusion Center, along with the FBIs hate crimes unit. Hate crimes add an element of bias to traditional crimes and the mixture is toxic to our communities, the FBI stated on its related web page, which shows a picture of the KKK burning crosses at a rally. The Loyal White Knights claims on its website that its not a hate group, but states, we do hate some things that certain groups are doing to our race and Nation. Lake Butler hasnt been the only Florida community targeted. The sheriffs office said fliers were also distributed throughout Alachua County and other north Florida counties. WFTV Channel 9 in Central Florida reported in December that for the third time in two months, the group distributed fliers. The station said that fliers were dropped off just before members of the state NAACP arrived in Brevard County for an annual meeting. In a Volusia County neighborhood where they were distributed in November, KKK leader Robert Jones told WFTVs Ryan Hughes that the fliers were aimed at recruiting new members, not frightening anyone. You say this was a recruiting effort; however, your group targeted a predominantly black neighborhood, Hughes told Jones. Why the group would now target Lake Butler is unknown at this time. I am saddened to see that such hatred is still perpetuated here in America in 2014. These fliers just prove that there are still ignorant people who are in our society that use the name of Christianity to promote hatred, said Patrick L. Maxwell, pastor of Victory Christian Center in Lake Butler. For this organization to consider themselves Christian is ludicrous. Christianity is about embracing all cultures, nationalities and ethnicities. As a pastor of a multicultural church I pray that no one in our loving community will be duped by these hateful and ignorant fliers. On the Union County Times Facebook page, Norma Owen Wilcox posted, I would like to say, as one of the people who picked up and threw away the KKK leaflet left in my yard, I am very offended. We dont need that kind of hate trash being thrown around our neighborhoods. We have worked for a long time to have a peaceful harmony in our town, and we dont want this kind of trash in our town. Sheriff Brad Whitehead was equally dismayed. The message was from a group that is trying to spread hate in many locations throughout America, Whitehead said in the UCSO statement. The Union County Sheriffs Office will not tolerate any hate toward any minority group. We take this very serious and it is not welcomed in Union County. Anyone that has any further information about this incident should contact UCSO at 386496-2501. in a zip-locked bag containing mints. BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph Sometime around March 19, a one-acre piece of property on U.S. 301, south of Starke, will be auctioned off at the courthouse. It is one of 15 to 20 such properties currently in Bradford Countys pipeline of properties up for auction. Someone will pay the full amount of all tax certificates written on these properties, plus additional fees and percentages and a tax deed will be written. Buyers will walk away with properties assessed at anywhere from $1,400 to nearly $100,000, potentially at a bargain basement price. County Tax Collector Teresa Phillips says the number of delinquent properties up for grabs is growing. In 2013, the countys total sales of delinquent tax certificates totaled $938,351 on 1,363 parcels. Is it due to a bad economy and people not able to pay their taxes? Not necessarily. A tax lien is similar to, but isnt, a foreclosure. Tax liens are filed by federal, state or local governments. Dont pay your taxes, governments confiscate your assets. Florida Statute 197 states in part: All owners of property are held to know that taxes are due and payable annually and are responsible for ascertaining the amount of current and delinquent taxes and for paying them before April 1 of the year following the year in which taxes are assessed. It is the states way of protecting county and municipal entities, Phillips said. The county budget is based (in part) on expected revenue from ad valorem taxes. When that revenue doesnt come in, the county must take action. Florida statutes also require the tax collector, on or before June 1, to conduct a sale of tax certificates on all land on which the taxes are delinquent for the preceding year. Certificates are sold at a tax sale auction through competitive bidding. Once a prospective bidder has registered and the on-line bidding start date is reached, bidders log in and begin placing their bids. The on-line bidding start date is the first day the advertising list is published in the newspaper. Bids can be submitted anytime from this date, until midnight before the actual tax sale date. Online county tax certificate sales in Florida follow a sealed bid format in the form of proxy bidding. The auctions encourage bidders to submit the lowest percentage rate they are willing to accept on their investment to win a particular tax certificate. The minimum bid is held in confidence in the system until the end of the bidding and certificates are awarded. The system, on behalf of the bidder, will bid the percentage rate necessary to maintain the position of the low bidder. Florida law requires all bidders to see at least a five percent return on their investment. The amount of the certificate is the sum of the unpaid real estate taxes and non-ad valorem assessments, such as schools or water, plus 3 percent interest, 5 percent in costs associated with the sale and advertising charges. If the owner later pays the taxes and all related charges, the lien is canceled. If the certificate is not redeemed between two and seven years from the date of the delinquency, the certificate holder can initiate a tax deed application that may result in the original owners loss of the property. Telegraph publisher John Miller, agrees that tax auctions seem to be on the rise; he watches tax certificates and auctions advertised in this newspaper, an advertisement required by law. Phillips said the trend is not always due to economic downturn, as one might expect.

Students shared their likes, dislikes, local weather updates, favorite foods and more. Utilizing the classroom computer, an overhead projector and Internet access, the 24 students from each school and the teachers talked for just over an hour. Working in conjunction with the First A Dream Foundation, the classes have developed a plan to keep the students interactively involved via a pen pal relationship and ongoing projects. Teachers will utilize the pen pal setting to help students improve and achieve better writing skills. Students received a quick lesson in geography using a national map, visually showing the students exactly how far apart they are from one another. A discussion between New York and Florida over the current weather revealed to the students that while cool, gray, dismal, and 46 degrees in Florida it was remarkably warmer than the blue skies, sunny and 19 degrees in New York. The First A Dream Foundation focuses on elementary-aged students. The motto Nothing Extraordinary without First A Dream exemplifies the foundations desire to broaden the horizon of students utilizing the educative setting. In existence since 2001, items from 40-plus countries across five continents have been brought back to the students at Cleveland Elementary School. The origin of the item, cultural significance and other notes of interest are shared with students. Interestingly, the theme for Brooker Elementary this year has been Dream Big Dream, Do Big Things. There, children are also finding that there are significant similarities in people and schools across the nation. Following the Skype session, Brooker fourth-grader Kaleb Hinds had this to say about the session: We learned we have stuff in common. Lexus Mann said, One day, I want to go to the Statue of Liberty in New York. Mikey Outlaw said he liked that you can see the other class and talk to the other class, and they can talk to you, too. Mrs. Boukaris fourth-grade class at Brooker has 18 students. Three third-graders and three fifth-graders were invited to participate to ensure an even mix of 24 students per class. Now that the introductions are over, students will begin to work on their pen pal letters, collaborative reading assignment and their distance learning project Another Skype session will be scheduled between the classes again in the near future. Bradford Middle School and Bradford High School IT Academy students have earned Lingold, Taylor Trollinger, Sarah Warren, Jakob Alvarez, Austin Bedwell, Morgan Clayton Rhoden, Breanna Tyndall and Paxon Wise. BHS students included Christopher Cannon, Zakia Lane, Taisha McCutchen, Christopher Padilla, Matthew Sherin, Malvin Stone, Bennett Kilgore, Brenton Ruise, Ty Johnson and Lance Leukel. Returning Selection means Creighton could tour DC Bailey Creighton was selected by the faculty as their representative to participate in the Clay Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C. Clay Electric has been a proud sponsor of the Youth Tour to Washington Program for 48 years. One junior student representative is chosen from each of the 26 high schools located service area. The students are given the opportunity to participate in a written quiz and speech contest in Tallahassee, all expenses paid. The four students with the highest combined score will receive a weeklong, all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., June 14-19. Bailey is pictured with BHS Principal Bryan Boyer. Students from Brooker Elementary watch the Cleveland Elementary students go through their introductions. Kaleb Hinds and Chase Bell listen to CES students answer a question from a Brooker student concerning their cold weather in New York. Devin Calton and Zach Perkins raise their hands, requesting to be allowed to ask CES the next question. Students were permitted 20 minutes of Q&A with the other class at the end of the Skype session.

Thursday, March 13, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. I am thinking about laying sod in my yard. Is it necessary to till the soil prior to doing so? Scott McClarty, Orange Park I am glad you asked this question because I have wondered about it myselfafter the sod was already laid. The short answer is yes; the soil should be tilled and raked prior to laying sod. In addition, it is best to make sure the soil is moist. The sod provider we used told us to water the freshly laid sod twice a day for a month or more until it is established. However, the University of Florida resource I consulted (http://edis.ifas.ufl. edu/lh013) recommended keeping the sod moist for the first seven days, with brief spritzes of water two to three times a day. After that, you should water when needed and as permitted under the rules of the St. Johns River Water Management District (http:// sjrwmd.state.fl.us) that apply to your area. Special rules apply to new landscapes. Sodding is more expensive than sprigging or plugging but it produces an instant lawnobviously, the big attraction of this method. Before buying sod, you should inspect it carefully to make sure it doesnt have visible weeds or insect-stressed areas. Plant it as soon as you can after it is delivered, but if you cant get to it right away, store the sod in a cool, shady area until you are ready to plant. Sod on pallets can die in less than 48 hours during summer months. Avoid the temptation to stretch your sod by leaving spaces between the piecesfit them together as tightly as possible. If there are cracks between the pieces, fill them with cut up pieces of sod. Tamp or roll the sod to remove air pockets and make sure the roots have good contact with the underlying soil. This helps ensure that the sod will not dry out while it is becoming established. More information about sodding and other methods of establishing Florida lawns is available at the reference cited above. Good luck! Mary W. Bridgman Church Holy Mission of Jesus Christ Church 625 E.

Gov. Rick Scott said, This kind of year-after-year improvement among Floridas children shows the results of focusing on factors that help young child learn what they need to know to be ready to start kindergarten. I congratulate Floridas early childhood educators for their hard work and am proud to recommend an increase in funding to boost in the base student allocation by $100 per child for both the school-year and summer programs. This would be the first increase in the VPK student allocation in three years. Florida ranks first in the nation with regard to prekindergarten access. Close to 80 percent of Floridas four-year-oldsmore than 174,000 childrenwere enrolled in VPK in the 2012-13 program year. The program is free for children who are Florida residents and will be 4 years old by Sept. 1 of the year they would enroll. Shan Goff, executive director of the Office of Early Learning, said, Florida is a leader in early learning; we offered fouryear-olds universal access to prekindergarten ahead of other states. More importantly, we are proving this commitment works as the percentage of children completing VPK who are ready for kindergarten continues to rise each year. The results of the 2013 Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener showed that almost 82 percent of children who completed a VPK program were ready for kindergarten, compared to about 53 percent of those who did not participate in VPK. Floridas children who attended some VPK fared better than those who did not attend at all. Approximately 66 percent of those who attended some VPK were kindergarten ready. Public schools are required to give FLKRS to children within the first 30 days of kindergarten. Private kindergartens may choose to participate. Screening results help kindergarten teachers plan how they teach in their classrooms. The results are also used to calculate VPK provider kindergarten readiness rates. Beginning with the 2010-11 year, the state adopted 70 as the minimum acceptable readiness rate for a VPK provider, indicating that 70 percent of that providers students who substantially completed the program screened ready on FLKRS. Results of the screening can be viewed at www. floridaearlylearning.com.

10A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, March 13, 2014 The council will also be seeking a new attorney. In Maines resignation letter, the city attorney of approximately 20 years expressed appreciation for the opportunity, and he wrote about some of Hamptons accomplishments, including grant-funded park and housing improvements. Maines has been criticized for not doing enough to prevent alleged wrongdoing, however, including the nepotism complaints about the Hall family. Starke attorney John Cooper has volunteered to help the city on an interim basis and for no charge. Coopers government experience includes his time as a county commissioner and his ongoing school board representation. Thursday night held another surprise for those who made it to the special meeting. Glenn Bryan from State Attorney Bill Cervones office addressed the city council and public, asking for access to city hall and its records. Bryan said he met with representatives from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement about findings in the audit that have raised some red flags. Bryan said those findings would be reviewed to determine if anything criminal took place. The council gave its emergency approval, and the next day FDLE was joined by the sheriffs office and state attorneys office in taking records into evidence. Bryan couldnt say how long the investigation would take, but he said Cervone had heard the communitys concerns about what may have happened at city hall. Were working with you and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to make sure that if there was wrongdoing, someone is punished for that, he said to the applause of those at the meeting. When it comes to priorities for the council, Williams said the water department is at the top. The water department is one of two major eyesores for the city, and consequently, you always clean the worst wounds first, he said. We have got to get the water department under control. That includes discovering who is and isnt receiving city water, and who has and hasnt been paying for it. Recovering water at the meter comes first, according to Williams, and then they can address problems with the lines that may be contributing to a 46 percent loss of the water being pumped from the ground. Water is precious in this state, and we dont want to waste it, but right now revenue is job one, Williams said. Resident Joshua Davis said there is no way the water is being pumped and then just dumped on the ground somewhere. If we were losing 46 percent, Hampton Lake would be overflowing, he said, meaning the water is being used but not paid for. One resident admitted that his water bill never changed, even after filling a swimming pool twice last summer. He said he saw the meter being read, but the bill was still $28. Williams said if water is being provided, it will be metered, adding that may be a hard pill to swallow for those used to years of free water. The city will receive assistance from Florida Rural Water Association in mapping the system and its customers. Things have got to change, Williams said, acknowledging that some may not like the results. Some are worried about a rate hike, but its too soon say whether that will be necessary. The city has a few weeks to put together a plan before the next legislative delegation meeting. That will take place in Hampton, not the courthouse, likely at one of the churches.HAMPTONContinued from 1A to retain its charter, but one of the caveats is the resignation and replacement of the city officials. With that in mind the final four council membersMyrtice McCullough, Frantz Innocent, David Parker and Bill Goodge tendered their resignations on Tuesday night, setting the effective date for Oct. 14. Between now and then a special election will be held. It will be overseen by Supervisor of Elections Terry Vaughan and coincide with the state primary in August. In addition to the five council seats, the mayors position will be on the ballot as well as a referendum on whether the charter should be amended to eliminate the position of town marshal. Qualifying information will be advertised. According to McCullough, the top two votegetters in the city council race will win two-year terms. The next three most popular candidates will win one-year terms. The terms are staggered so that future elections will not involve the entire council running at once. The council also appointed its interim attorney, John Cooper, and hired its new city clerk. Amy Davis was selected from a total of three applicants and was set to begin work Wednesday, although decisions about city halls hours of operation were put off until the next council meeting. Davis has worked as the citys clerk before, from 1996-1999, and there was talk of making her position full time. One of Coopers first tasks will be to draw up an ordinance that will relinquish the citys hold on U.S. 301. The citys boundaries will continue to extend to 301, however, as the residents of Fox Hollow have indicated they wish to remain inside the city limits. It was a sometimes raucous meeting, with residents complaining about code enforcement problems and water quality, and quizzing the council about hiring a qualified water plant operator. Citizen Joyce Mitchell summed it up for everyone. With all of these new changes, are we going to see an improvement in the city of Hampton? she asked, mentioning the need for sidewalks, guardrails and lighting. The city shouldnt be worrying about holding Christmas parades and throwing Halloween parties instead of dealing with real issues, she said. Mitchell said she was born and raised down the road, and there havent been many changes in her 60 years. We would like to think were going to have some improvements, McCullough said. Dan Williams, who was appointed to replace Charles Hall on the council last week, announced that the city has been tentatively approved for a water management district grant for water tank revitalization. Williams said former clerk Christina Mobley gets the credit for applying for the $25,000 award. Its a major deal for us in the position were in right now, Williams said. The tank is due for inspection and that cost combined with any maintenance needs discovered could be paid for with the grant. In the next few days, the city will begin examining its water customer base, and Williams offered some words of advice to those who know they havent been paying for their water. This is a time when Hampton needs to pull together, he said, urging those people to come forward now before the hammer comes down. Stealing utilities is a felony, he said. If youre getting water today and you either have not gotten a bill or you have no meter, please, you need to let us know, said Williams. Hamptons next council meeting will be Tuesday, March 25, at 7 p.m. A previously called town hall meeting remains on the schedule for Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m. MOOREContinued from 1A and old age. Of the countys 237 current outstanding tax certificates, 10 property owners are listed as deceased; an additional 31 are owned by an estate. Many of the cases we have right now are heirs properties, Phillips said. Its possible, and does happen, that some coowners may not be aware that taxes are due or that taxes havent been paid. They may not even be aware that they co-own the property. Miller produced a sheaf of ads and information on 12 of 20 or so properties to go up for auction this month. Of the 12 properties, seven were owned by an estate, or the owner was listed as deceased. Taxes had been assigned to multiple owners, presumably heirs, lists of three or more people rather than a single individual or a couple. One property was located on C.R. 200B. The owner was an estate and the tax statement had been sent to an individual in Georgia, possibly the deceaseds daughter or a business representative. However, the tax assessment listed the estate, the addressee and 18 additional heirs as being responsible for paying taxes. Sometimes you inherit land you dont actually want, Miller said. If someone inherits land in Bradford County but lives elsewhere, would they want only one acre in Bradford County badly enough to pay taxes on it? Family or heirs squabbles can get in the way. Sons and daughters marry and move across the country. On the Bradford tax collectors books today are 237 certificates from 2005 to 2012, properties the county has absorbed when nobody wanted to bid on them. None of those are listed as resulting from bankruptcy. Fewer than 25 appear to be business or corporate properties; the rest appear to be owned by individuals. Forty-nine individuals and businesses own two or more properties with tax certificates written against them. Three certificates date from 2005, five from 2006, 30 from 2008, 43 from 2010, 112 from 2011 and 44 from 2012. Naturally, you would expect earlier years to reflect fewer cases as property or certificate owners clear up the liens. In Bradfords database of open tax certificates, only about half of the contacts for tax certificate properties reside in Bradford or Union counties. Around 22 percent of contacts live outside of Florida and two live outside the U.S. Just because one coowner gets the tax bill in the mail doesnt mean the addressee can or will get in touch with all the other listed heirs, or even knows them. A second example in the Bradford files involves a business couple who lived in the area some years ago but has since moved to a western state. The property in question is worth a few thousand dollars. The owners may have simply walked away from the property, because it is no longer worth their while to maintain or dispose of it through a bothersome sale in regular channels. By now, they may have bigger fish to fry elsewhere. One year after assessed taxes have not been paid, a tax certificate is issued by the tax collectors office. Of Millers 12 examples, four tax certificates were owned by PNC Bank of Tampa, seven by U.S. Bank of Dundee and one by a capital investment corporation. Why would banks want these? Miller asked. An online source, Tax Lien University, says its not at all unusual for banks and other big investors to buy up tax liens, lured by the potential for interest returns as high as 18 percent or more. In Illinois the peak interest rate allowed is over 30 percent. According to the site, Investors and Wall Street insiders spend ($7 to $10 billion dollars) each year buying tax lien certificates. Theyve also done their very best to keep the tax lien business to themselves. They have been helped by the recent turn to offering tax certificates for sale online. Banks may like to own high interest certificates without becoming property owners. Most American banks are already trying to ditch foreclosed mortgage properties as fast as they can. Why would they want to become custodians of more? Shelly Gibbs, branch manager at M&S Bank in Keystone Heights, said she assumes banks would be interested in the high interest rates, but may have no interest in owning the property unless they also hold an unpaid mortgage on it. According to the PNC Bank website, owners may mistakenly assume the bank automatically pays the taxes each year, but no escrow account was set up to do so. This especially applies to the sub-prime mortgages of a few years ago. Tax Lien University says that if the Florida tax lien certificate is not redeemed, after two years of holding a certificate but no later than seven, the certificates buyer may request and file a tax deed application. If the certificate remains unredeemed, the property is scheduled for public auction by the Clerk of Circuit Court. For non-homestead parcels, the opening bid equals delinquent property taxes, accrued interest, plus costs and fees. For homestead parcels, the opening bid is half the assessed value plus delinquent taxes, interest, fees, and costs. The highest bidder is awarded ownership of the property.Its not unheard of for one or several heirs to show up when property is auctioned, to become sole owner of the property just lost by a group of heirs, Phillips said. That could be less expensive and complicated than trying to negotiate with all other heirs and buy from each of them one share at a time. Assistant Clerk Lisa Brannon at the Bradford Clerk of the Courts office said after the tax collector sends an affidavit stating that a property is to be auctioned the clerks office notifies owners, lien and mortgage holders and other interested parties. The date and time of the auction is advertised in the Telegraphs legal notices. The owner may redeem the property by paying taxes and fees at the last minute and the sale is stopped, Brannon said. It may also happen that no one shows up for the sale. In this case, the tax certificate holder pays the opening bid, additional court costs and filing fees and gets the property. If additional bidders show up, the property goes to the highest bidder. Before readers withdraw their IRA funds and head for the courthouse, be advised: there are caveats. A tax deedthe deed you get if an auctioned property is turned over to youmay be what Phillips called a cloudy deed. That is, it may not be entirely clean and can come with complications. Theres no guarantee an heir wont show up later with claims the property is rightly theirs. The cost of title searches and legal fees could become an issue. Tax Lien University also cautions its students to avoid worthless properties, federal tax liens, bad neighborhoods, bankruptcies, costly environmental issues and uninsurable titles. The prospective tax certificate investor should also be prepared to navigate competitive markets, says Tax Lien University.

ROADContinued from 2A wouldnt be paying for services like animal control that the county has the power to deny them. If the city moves forward with a study of the countys and its own tax structure, it could change the approach to taxation as well as interlocal agreements between the city and county. No longer will the discussion be about the city asking the county for support in paying for one service, or the county requiring a municipal surcharge in exchange for providing another service. What happens to tax bills after the study remains to be seen. Citizens of Starke could see their county tax bill reduced for services they are no longer required to pay for. That reduction could be offset if the city raises its levy in order to replace or provide new services. Sanders said the study could also come back to haunt the city if it turns out, for instance, that the county can provide full law enforcement services to the city for less money that it costs to run the police department. That could revive calls to consolidate the department with the sheriffs office or simply turn over law enforcement responsibilities to the sheriff. Regardless, the taxpayers should benefit, Sanders said. The county has never broken down it what our (tax revenue) is doing, Commissioner Wilbur Waters said. Where is it going? Thats what everyone sitting here wants to know and cannot get that answer. Sanders said its not that the county is being unscrupulous. The matter just hasnt been approached in this way before. But there is precedent set by other cities asking the same questions, and when necessary, taking legal action. Commissioner Travis Woods said, as it was explained to him, the county spends its money out of one big pot, but he wants more accountability since the county isnt on a shoestring budget as the city is. They dont have to pinch their pennies the way we do, Woods said. Commissioner Tommy Chastain said it comes down to fair collection and appropriation of tax dollars. Mayor Carolyn Spooner said these are reasonable questions the city commission is asking. Its a fair question. Its not necessarily that were fighting with them, she said. Its not about going to war with the county, Woods said, but about protecting the citys interests. The next step is finding a consultant capable of conducting the study. The cost of such an analysis is uncertain.TAXESContinued from 1A Church promoting Wild Game DinnerOld Providence Baptist Church is holding a free Wild Game Dinner for the entire community on Saturday, March 15, from 5-7:30 p.m. There will be various entrees including, but not limited to, deer, gator tail, game birds and fish.

traded his Scouting uniform for one provided by Uncle Sam, Vaughan said. He joined the U.S. Army as a member of the 88th Infantry Division. He was stationed in the Alps in northern Italy and was part of the Armys ski troops. After his honorable discharge in 1947, Register enrolled at the University of Florida, where he earned a bachelors degree in education. Then, the start of what Vaughan described as a legendary career in both education and coaching. He was the Bradford High School head football coach from 1955 through 1961. The team won five straight Keystone Conference championships, had a 32-game winning streak and appeared in two Strawberry Bowl games during that time. Register was selected as the head coach of the North All-Star team in 1961 and was recognized as the Gainesville Suns Coach of the Year in three consecutive seasons. In 1961, Register left Bradford and took the head coaching position at Bay High School in Panama City. He was successful there as well, leading the team to two Big Five Conference championships during a sevenyear period. He was also named as coach of the North All-Star BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Casey Jones, one of the survivors of the 2009 U.S. Airways flight that crashed into the Hudson River, encouraged the assembled crowd at the Florida National Guard armory in Starke to embrace life and all that it has to offer. The Feb. 27 Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council American Values Dinner honored Lennard Register, an individual who has done just that, and in the process embraced the youth in the community by pledging approximately $14,000 to support local Boy Scouts. Jones, the events keynote speaker, certainly has a thrilling, emotional story to tell (see related story), but even he admitted it was hard to follow Register, who was presented with the Boy Scouts Distinguished Citizen Award. Its an honor to be on the same dais as you, Jones told Register, a former Bradford County educator, administrator and coach. I really do appreciate it. Its truly an honor to hear a man of your accomplishments and to hear what youve done. He may have been the evenings honoree, but Registers first comment was to thank those in attendance for their support of Boy Scoutsan organization dear to his heart. Registers father was a Scoutmaster for 22 years, with 32 Scouts attaining the rank of Eagle Scout under his leadership. One of those Eagle Scouts was Register, who was the first-ever Scout for Troop 98 in Jasper to attain that rank. Id like to say thank you for coming and being a part of giving a boost to Scouting, said Register, who also earned a Bronze Palm during his time in the Boy Scouts. America needs Scouting bad, particularly in this day and time. Terry Vaughan, one of the dinners host committee members, spoke at length about Register, who was born in Valdosta, Ga., and grew up in Hamilton County. He played football and basketball at Hamilton High School, as well as playing clarinet in the band.

team again, making him the first coach to have earned that honor twice. Then, it was time for another change. Always willing to follow the path where faith led him, he uprooted his family and moved to Clinton, Miss., in 1968 in order to earn his masters degree in education from Mississippi College, Vaughan said. Vaughan said it had to have taken courage to do that at the age of 40, but if it made Register nervous, it didnt show. While going through classes at Mississippi College, Register also coached defensive backs for the schools football team and also was the head coach of the baseball team. As if that wasnt enough, Vaughan added, The student body also voted him Sexiest Man on Campus. Once he completed work on his masters Register moved back to Bradford County and worked in the school system. Register served as the principal of Hampton Elementary School (1969-72), the principal of Bradford Middle School (197375) and the director of operations in charge of maintenance, transportation and warehousing (1975-90). Register has been involved with such groups as the Rotary Club of Starke and Community Mens Fellowship, and is a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Starke, where he has served as a deacon. He and his wife of 61 years, Ernestine, have three childrenLen, Steve and Chuckseven grandchildren that neither engine was working. Passengers eventually heard Sullenberg say, This is the captain. Embrace for impact. Ill tell you this, when you hear those words, an awful lot of stuff starts to go through your mind, Jones said. Your mind goes into hyperdrive, and thats exactly what mine did that day. Jones took out his phone so he could call his wife, Judy. She was on another flight with their son, so Jones said he was prepared to leave her an I love you message. His fingers were shaking so badly, he couldnt punch in the password to access the phone. At that point, I could only hope she knew how much I loved her, Jones said. Jones assumed crash position as flight attendants repeatedly told passengers to keep their heads down and brace for impact. He looked up periodically, though, to look out the window to see how close the plane was to the river, while his mind was consumed with thoughts on his family and what the outcome would be. I never in my own mind admitted I was about to die, Jones said, but I knew it was a possibility. I thought about my family. What would life be like for them? What would their future hold? How is all this going to end? The impact caused Jones face to hit his tray table, while the sudden sound of rushing water was comparable to standing at Niagara Falls and removing earplugs. It was really loud, Jones said. Passengers began disembarking in an orderly fashion. Jones said it was reminiscent of lining up for a fire drill in grade school. Passengers the left side of the plane. It was a seat he always tried to get when flying out of LaGuardia because of the views of Manhattan, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty it offered after takeoff. Jones described the takeoff as smooth, but as he began to settle in and relax, he heard a sound he described as a pop. He likened it to being downstairs in a two-story house and hearing someone on the upper floor drop a 50-pound stack of books. It was a different sound and a different feel, Jones said. All those times I had flown before, I heard things and felt things, but this was different. The plane lost momentum, and Jones noticed the engine right outside his window was making a sound he equated to sneakers in a dryer. As the plane began descending, Jones wondered to himself why the pilot didnt fire the right engine, not knowing at that time what had happened and which was when the plane was scheduled to take off, but Jones said, In LaGuardia, thats an ontime flight. Jones described himself as a restful baby in a car seat once he took his seat in 7A. Again, nothing out of the ordinary for the man who said he had flown hundreds of times. I could just sit there and relax and eventually fall asleep once we took off, Jones said.

PEABODY & SHERMANN ON-STOP BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Surviving a plane crash would seem like a nightmare that most people would be more than happy to put behind them, but Casey Jones cant ignore the positive effect the crash he survived has had on his life. Jones had a positive outlook on life before the crash, but his appreciation of life is so much more in the aftermath. If he could take away the anxiety his family and friends suffered during those moments where the outcome was uncertain, Jones said he would go through his own anxiety and fears all over again. The outlook that it has given me on life is absolutely unbelievable, and Id never have had it without having gone through this, Jones said. Jones, the keynote speaker at the Feb. 27 Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council American Values Dinner at the Florida National Guard armory in Starke, was one of the passengers in what has become known as the Miracle on the Hudson. On Jan. 15, 2009, U.S. Airways Flight 1549 lost both of its engines after striking geese shortly after takeoff from New York Citys LaGuardia Airport. Capt. Chesley Sully Sullenberger made the decision to bring the plane down into the Hudson, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew. What I encourage you to do this evening is sit back, relax and embrace for impact, Jones told the crowd before sharing his story. It was a typical Thursday for the Bank of America executive who was used to flying. Jones was traveling back and forth between his home in Jacksonville and New York City three times a month at that time. Passengers boarded the flight at 2:45, Hudson River plane crash survivor: Embrace life Casey Jones See JONES, 3BHONORContinued from 1B and two great-grandchildren. Its a story of a life well lived, Vaughan said. Along the way, he earned many cherished titles: Eagle Scout, risk-taker, pioneer, educator, husband, father, grandfather, mentor, Christian and patriot. By the time Register took to the stage to accept the Distinguished Citizen Award following Vaughans introduction, he joked, I had a great speech made out and worked on it day and night, but Terry Vaughan took it away from me. Register thanked his family for being there to support him, mentioning the fact that his son, Chuck, and his family traveled from North Carolina. Chucks daughter returned to the U.S. approximately a month ago after a two-year stay in China working with the International Mission Board. What a great lady, Register said. Another great lady, of course, is Registers wife. He thanked her and made light of their long partnership. Sixty-one years, Register said. Can you believe that? Sixty-one years. She told me what to do, and then turned around and told me how to do it. In all serious, Register said, She was the most important thing that ever happened to me, outside of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is number one, and my wife is number two. The American Values Dinner received support in the form of table hosts Vaughan, Jeff Oody, John Palmer, Scott Roberts, Tom Smith and dinner chairman Barry Warren. Rowe Enterprises was a table sponsor. Through their effort, the dinner not only had quite a crowd, but resulted in the total donation of $14,100, which exceeded the goal of $9,000. Tonights event helps provide safe, quality programs for nearly 1,000 Scouts and leaders, Warren said. Included in this is a number of underprivileged youth who would otherwise not be in Scouting. Your gifts will provide books and uniforms, and will help send them to summer camp along with (taking care of) many other expenses to benefit these children.

exited the plane and entered 20-degree temperatures with a wind chill of 11 degrees. The water of the Hudson was 35 degrees. Jones spent the next 17 minutes on one of the planes wings. We were in the middle of the river in the most populated city in America, and we felt very, very alone, he said. That was the time to attempt another phone call, knowing it wouldnt take long for news of the crash to air on television, Jones said. His wife was on a plane; his oldest daughter was in the midst of an interview. That left his 20-year-old daughter, who was a student at the University of Central Florida. He called her to let her know he was OK and to pass information along to the rest of the family. That was the hardest phone call Ive ever had to make in my life, Jones said, but she did absolutely everything perfectly that day. Jones then tried to reach his mother, who was 80 and rarely left her home. However, she didnt pick up the phone. Jones was left with making a decision. Should he leave a message on her answering machine? He decided to do just that, saying that in his mind he thought he sounded calm and collected. Well, Jones tried calling his mother twice after that, leaving messages both times. The third call and message was after he was rescued. Jones said he was thankful his mother didnt listen to the messages until after his rescue. The calm and collected voice he thought he was using was not in existence on either of the first two messages. There was utter panic that a mother can see right through, Jones said. By the time she listened to that third message, she knew I was safe. Before that third call, Jones had to get off the planes wing. He wound up being the last person rescued. When his turn finally came to grab the ladder of a New York Waterway ferry, Jones slipped and fell into the water.

You know when they tell you about that strap around the middle of the life jacket? Thats a very important step. Jones surfaced almost as soon as he plunged into the river, thinking to himself, Im not going out like this. As he grabbed the boat ladder a second time, he discovered that his legs didnt want to work. The ladder had ice on it, and it felt like he was trying to climb up it sideways, Jones said. Halfway up, he announced he could go no farther. Fellow passenger Gerry McNamara reached down and grabbed hold of Jones belt to help him finish the climb. When he grabbed my belt, it gave me the confidence to take that last couple of steps and get up on the desk and be rescued. That was the first time I knew I was going to be OK, and it was the first time I acknowledged how cold I was. I hit the deck of that boat, and I shivered for the next four hours. Upon arrival at Weehawken Terminal, the boat captain removed Jones shirt and tie. Meanwhile, a deckhand was removing his layers of clothing, which included a hooded sweatshirt had gave to Jones to wear. He literally gave me the clothes off his back so I could start to try to get warm, Jones said. Inside the terminal, New York Waterway employees began grabbing clothes out of employee lockers to give to the plane passengers. Jones said he was given a shirt that was about a size too small, but it was dry and warm. Then, someone brought him a pair of pants that were too small. A second pair of pants was given to Jones. They were approximately six sizes too big. Jones still has the pants, which he and his family refer to as the Jared pants, in reference to the Subway spokesman. Though too big, he put them on and kept them up with a belt. From the terminal, Jones was taken to a Red Cross shelter. While watching the TV there, Jones learned that everyone on the plane survived. That was a tremendous amount of relief to hear that, he said. Jones and other passengers were put up in hotels. It was there that Jones looked into the mirror for the first time since the crash. What he saw was a man wearing several articles of clothing that didnt fit him with a cut on his head and hard that went every which way. The image that I saw staring back at me was that of a homeless person, Jones said. It gave me a compassion for the homeless that I never, never, never wouldve had without seeing that and going through this experience. Its one of the many, many gifts Ive received because of this. Before the crash, Jones would wake up every morning and tell himself he was going to have a great day. Now, he said he wakes every morning knowing for sure its going to be a great day. Ill still have trials and tribulations, Jones said, but every day is a great day. Jones urged those in attendance at the armory to stop and take note of everything around them. Enjoy the sights and smells of life, and treasure those moments, he said. More importantly, he said, is to never stop telling your loved ones that you love them. You see, its clich to say everything we have can end in just a moment, Jones said, but its not clich to make the most of each and every moment each and every day. When you leave tonight, commit to embrace your dreams, embrace your goals, embrace your families and embrace your friends. Embrace every piece of life that is you. You see, on Jan. 15, 2009, at 3:31 p.m., Capt. Sullenberger said, Brace for impact. What Im encouraging you to do tonight is embrace for impact. Itll change your life.

Van Zant meant when he said that paying his speeding ticket fine from Hampton had nothing to do with the investigation of the city. Would that have happened had he not gotten the ticket? Several times during the recent legislative meeting at the Bradford courthouse, he stated that one did not have anything to do with the other. Now, is that really the truth? Now, just how many other legislative investigations has he initiated? This is not to say that an investigation was not necessary, but why did he insist that one had nothing to do with the other? It would seem to this old, county boy that had we had a representative or senator that was worth his salt, they would have stepped in and said we know you need help, and we are going to find it for you. As big as this state is, one would think that there are enough high-dollar people in government to get three or four that could be spared to get a little, old place like Hampton up and running. We are supposed to send people to Tallahassee that work with us, not against us. Malcolm Hill Morgan RoadWheres the help for Hampton?Dear Editor: I would like to answer the question posed by The Concerned Citizens of Union County.   Do the citizens have any say in who fills the position of sheriff? The answer is a resounding YES. The citizens of Union County select their sheriff every four years.   For the past 60-plus years, the majority of the citizens selected John H. Whitehead and Jerry Whitehead to serve as our sheriffs. Due to the untimely passing of Sheriff Jerry Whitehead, the appointment process was used by the governor as directed by statute. The governor can appoint anyone to fill the remainder of a term until the next election. The appointment process is not that different from an election. It appears that, by far, the majority of those calling, writing or emailing the governor supported Brad Whitehead to serve the remainder of his fathers term. The next election will be November of this year, and People have a voice; get out and voteeveryone can support, work for and vote for the candidate of their choice. I encourage everyone to participate. I would also encourage everyone to be civil in their actions and words. I believe the citizens of Union County   can participate in the election process without the use of vile language and the use of negative, unsubstantiated allegations. Again, get engaged, participate and vote your choice. Its the   American way   and the Union County way. Thank You, Jack Sapp Dear Editor: A few weeks ago I received a call on a Saturday evening from a Starke resident whose granddaughter (approximately 2 years old) was hysterical because of a kitten that had followed them home and was injured. The caller told me that the kittens leg was broken and that you could see bone. Any time I hear a story like that I have to go. I took a carrier with me and went to check on this kitten with every intention of taking the injured kitten to an emergency clinic and ending its suffering. As I got out of the car and walked up to the kitten I saw that is was a Russian Blue. It couldnt have bee more than 7 or 8 weeks old. But it was curled up beside a truck tire and I could see the bone and could also smell the infection in the wound. I carefully picked up the kitten and realized that its leg wasnt just broken it was almost completely severed. I drove to Gainesville to Affiliated Pet Emergency Services to have the kitten examined with the car windows open so that I could stand the smell. As I drove I tried to observe the kitten and noticed that it didnt seem to be bothered by the leg and just calmly laid in the carrier during the whole ride. As I was filling out the paperwork on the kitten I was asked for its name. I didnt know at this time whether it was a boy or girl so I named it Blue. After a brief exam the Veterinarian told me that he didnt know how the injury occurred but that it was about a week old. That meant that the little kitten was probably out in the bitterly cold, wet weather that we had just had. I knew that the smart and humane thing to do would have been to euthanize the little kitten but she had tried so hard to stay alive that I couldnt do it. The Veterinarian didnt want to do it either. They Story of a little girl who saved a kittencleaned her wound, snipped off the dangling part of the leg and bandaged her up. I had already contacted my Veterinarian about the amputation and was scheduled to take her for that procedure on the following Monday. Since then Blue has had her leg amputated and she is doing well. She has gone from being happy to be held all of the time to wanting to run around and play. I think how lucky she is that she followed that little girl home. The little girls intense emotional reaction compelled her parents and grandmother to find someone to help the kitten. I hope that this little girl keeps that ability to feel so strongly compassionate for other living things as she grows up. I hope that she is not changed by a world that doesnt value all life. Tracy George Founder/President Supporters of Sheltered Animals Inc. Dear Editor: Did you know that it will soon be against the law to rid your area of stray cats that hang out on your property?   Clay County commissioners have just approved the TNR program which means trap, neuter, and release, and release means back into your area.   This program relieves the county of having to pay for euthanizing the growing number of stray cats, but it does not relieve the individual property owner of having to live with wild stray cats.   One may get into an endless debate with those who support such a movement which is not the purpose of this letter.   We all have different opinions about politics, religion, guns, etc.   But we still have the freedom to be either Democrat or Republican, Christian or Atheist, own a gun or not own a gun.   I would just like to have the freedom to be able to rid my property of wild stray cats by humanely trapping them Reader wants property to be stray-cat freeand taking them to the county animal facility without having it returned to my area. We have county animal control persons who take responsibility for picking up stray dogs.   In our nation, thousands of good dogs are euthanized daily.   We also have state wildlife control persons who take responsibility for wildife.   Stray wild cats are not native wildlife.   They are wild descendants of pet cats.   I was on the board of my countys Animal Rescue League in the state of Ohio for eight years.   I have spent a lot of time and money in my lifetime trying to find homes for stray pets.   The fact is that there are only so many homes out there open for pets, and of those homes, there are only so many that are willing to care for their pets responsibly.   Most no kill animal shelters I have contacted tell me that they are sorry but they have no more room for an extra pet.   This is a fact of life.   I am certainly for organizations that encourage and help pet owners spay and neuter their pets, both cats and dogs.   Just dont force me to conform to a movement that demands that I live with stray wild cats.

allowed it to return to the bed. A week later, Morrell was back on Kingsley Lake and landed the 14-pounder. It was 27.75 inches long with a 21-inch girth. Various formulas used for estimating bass weights project a bass with those dimensions weighing between 13.5 and 16.2 pounds, further substantiating the catch. This is now the biggest bass of TrophyCatch season two, and we are right in the middle of peak fishing time for big bass so the challenge is on. Fishing has been awesome this spring, Morrell said. Im so glad that I could get these documented and then release the females alive right back on their beds. Next weekend, on March 15, Im putting on a Relay for Life fishing tournament on Lake Santa Fe to support the fight against cancer, but will be back fishing myself as soon as possible. TrophyCatch is FWCs premier angler-recognition program that encourages anglers who catch largemouth bass weighing more than 8 pounds to photo-document them on a scale showing the entire fish and its weight. Once documented, a fish must be live-released in the same water system from which it was caught. In return for documenting and releasing these big female bass that typically are at least 8 years old and relatively rare, the FWCs partners provide valuable rewards. FWC posts the images on the TrophyCatchFlorida. com website and provide a fullcolor certificate and club decal. Corporate partners provide additional incentives. For more information, visit www.trophycatchflorida.com and follow www.facebook.com/ trophycatchflorida. Joseph Brooks Morrell recently reported three huge bass that he caught, documented, released and entered in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions TrophyCatch program. These included the second and third Hall of Fame entries for the programs second season (Oct. 1, 2013-Sept. 30, 2014). The bass weighed 13 pounds, 12 ounces, and 14 pounds, 9 ounces, and were caught March 1 and 8, respectively. The third bass he caught on March 9 weighed 11 pounds, 13 ounces. All three of his trophy bass were caught sight-fishing with a soft, plastic Berkley crawfish bait on Lake Kingsley in Clay County. Morrell grew up fishing in Florida and then spent six years in the U.S. Air Force security forces prior to returning to Florida to become a law enforcement officer in Bradford County. On March 1, he located the 13-pounder on a bed guarded by a male. After working the male off the bed, he landed her using the artificial crawfish bait and called the FWC. Conservation officers Jason Bryant and Christiane Larosa were able to help measure the bass and even photographed its successful release, which Thursday, March 13, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 7B NOW ENROLLING FOR 2014/2015!

Fins, Fur & Tails Jim Lewis says the most common advice given by good outdoor cooks it to master the elements of time, temperature and smoke. Selecting your wood smoke should be an easy decision if you just decide to use a mild wood like oak until you can get your time and temperature down. Lewis indicates that the real challenge of outdoor cooking is to learn to regulate and vary your time and temperature. Different types of meat have different demands upon time and temperature. For example, lean meats like steaks require a high temperature and fast cook time. On the other hand, meats with more fat content, like pork shoulders, should be cooked at low temperatures for a longer time. Low and slow is the common description of the time and temperature necessary for smoking pork. Despite the necessary variations of time and temperature, all grilled or smoked meats should be initially seared. In other words, they should be browned on all sides with a high temperature.   The searing process ensures that the meat will not loose all of its internal moisture. Lewis says that an old timer can look at the meat and tell a lot about it. How far rib meat recedes from the tip of the bones will provide an indicator of how well it is cooked. Some people can also tell how well done a steak or pork butt is by its firmness or softness. It takes some experience, however, to collect that knowledge, and until that has occurred, the outdoor cook needs a timer and the right thermometers. Most grills have thermometers mounted on them, and they will provide a good general temperature.   Sometimes the temperature on the cooking surface might vary, and there are thermometers that can lie on the cooking surface and provide that information. Perhaps the most important thermometer, Lewis says, is the meat thermometer preferably a digital meat thermometer.   Because the cooking temperature can vary so much, the internal meat temperature is the most valid and consistent indicator of how well done the meat is.   The internal temperature should always be taken at the deepest and thickest point of the cut.   Poultry and pork should always reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit for safety purposes. Incidentally, if you plan to buy thermometers for smoking and/ or grilling and will be frying a turkey, remember to get a thermometer to measure your oil temperature.Outdoors outlook Spring is on our doorstep.   Frogs will soon be laying eggs that will shortly turn into tadpoles. Youth turkey days (March 8-9) are nearly here, and spring turkey season will follow on March 15. Snakes and other reptiles will soon be crawling. Purple martins and hummingbirds will be returning from Latin and South America.   Meanwhile, our winter birds will soon be gone. Joey Tyson says the crappie bite is waning, and more people are fishing bass beds in the shallows. The next month or so will be the best opportunity for trophy bass in North Florida, and no one has to remind Brooks Morrell, who recently entered two fish he caught in Kingsley Lake into the Hall of Fame of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions TrophyCatch program. (See accompanying press release and photo.) Ed Allen says the bass action in Sampson is also good at this time. Last week, Allen landed a 7-plus-pound bass on a 10inch Tequila Sunrise Culprit worm. The week prior to that, he and Keith Starling caught approximately 50 bass, including quite a few females.   Obviously, most of those were released. Tight lines until next week.Outdoors calendar March 8-9, youth spring turkey season; March 12, Bald Eagle bas tournaments at Lake Santa Fe begin; March 15, Murphy s Law Relay for Life Bass Tournament, 5 a.m. at Little Lake Santa Fe boat ramp; March 15, spring turkey season begins.

Tristan Starling had a perfect night at the plate and drove in three runs in the Keystone Heights High School baseball teams 4-0 win over District 5-4A opponent P.K. Yonge on March 7 in Gainesville. Starling, who was 4-for-4 with a double and a triple, drove in two of his runs as part of a threerun first inning. Kyle Hix drove in a run, while Storm Miller was 2-for-3 with a double. The Indians (4-4, 2-2) got a complete game from pitcher Morgan Bass, who gave up two hits and struck out eight to earn the win. Prior to playing P.K. Yonge, the Indians hosted district opponent Fort White on March 4, losing 4-3. Keystone was held to four hits, with Hix and Blake Richardson each driving in a run. Dean Dukes pitched the final four innings, giving up just one hit. The Indians played Buchholz this past Tuesday and will host Williston on Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m. On Friday, March 14, Keystone will travel to play district opponent Bradford at 7 p.m. Keystone returns home on Tuesday, March 18, to play P.K. Yonge at 7 p.m. for the first time as a Webber player, Wiggins said the moment will be like going back in time. (Itll) probably be something to the effect of the way I felt when I stepped onto the high school field my freshman year, Wiggins said. Its that new feeling of, All right, Im a freshman. Ive got to earn my way up here. Davis believes Wiggins has found a school that will be a good fit for her. I think shes going to do a great job there, Davis said. I think they have a good program. Shell have an opportunity to go in and play early and flourish. I think people see her working hard, and it makes them work hard, Davis said. Wiggins said that hard work will continue. For example, she subscribes to the belief that in order to become a better hitter, youve got to take 300 swings a day. Hitting will be one area where shell have to improve in as the level of pitching a player faces day in and day out is much higher at the collegiate level, Davis said. Wiggins, though, is focused on her overall game. Theres always room for improvement, she said. As for stepping onto the field 12B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, March 13, 2014 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School senior Lindsey Wiggins signed a letter of intent on March 5 to play softball at Webber International University in Babson Park. Its something Ive always wanted to doget my education and play the sport I love to play, Wiggins said. Its been a dream of mine since I was little. Im so glad Ive finally accomplished that. Wiggins, who plays first base, had been looking at several schools, but she said Webber just felt right. She described the people there as down to earth and talked of how the campus had a hometown feel. When I went on my visit to Webber, I pulled up, and it was right off a two-lane road, Wiggins said. It was very small, and everybody there just felt like family almost. I looked out in the parking lot, and there were a bunch of pickup trucks. I was like, You know what? My truck belongs here, too. Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said Wiggins, who has been a starter since her freshman year, has put in the effort necessary to get better and earn this opportunity. She is one of the hardest workers we have, he said. Shes also extremely tough. Shes not afraid to get hit by a pitch and do whatever is necessary to get on base to help our team. Shes a very unselfish player. Davis said Wiggins has been a leader as she is one of just three seniors on this years team.Bradford Highs Wiggins to play softball at Webber InternationalStarling drives in 3 runs in 4-0 Indians winKeystone Heights picked up its second District 5-4A win in softball, defeating host Fort White 8-7 win on March 7. The Indians (3-6, 2-3) had two three-run innings, including one in which Brooke Tussinger hit a fly ball to right field with the bases loaded. The Fort White fielder lost the ball in the lights, which allowed all three base runners to score. Taylor Morris and Breanna Wells were 2-for-3 and 2-for4, respectively. One of Wells hits was a double, while Kristen Wood hit a triple and scored two runs. CeCe Buckley and Kaitlan Shepard each scored two runs as well. Pitcher Brittany Schelpepper earned the win.
