CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Further investigation into the robberies Starke Police Department detailed last week has led to additional charges for one suspect and the arrest of another. Police Capt. Barry Warren said one of the teens arrested for his alleged involvement in the armed robbery of Little Caesars on March 29 has also been tied to the robbery of Sams Discount Liquor on South Walnut Street. The liquor store was targeted by two suspects on Jan. 29 around 7:41 p.m. Police were told that a masked subject displaying a black handgun entered the store, pointed the weapon at the clerk and demanded money. A second subject, also believed to be masked, stood at the door. The clerk gave them an undisclosed amount of cash from the register, both subjects fled the business. Warren said they were last seen leaving on foot. According to Warren, one of those individuals was 19-year-old Derrick Smith Jr. of Starke. After his arrest on March 29, for the robbery of Little Caesars, Smith was also linked to the March 26 robbery of Island Food Store, and now the robbery of the liquor store, too. He is charged with armed robbery and grand theft and remains jailed with bail set at $560,000. The second subject was also identified during the investigation and arrested. Dillon Wayne Stephens, 16, of Bradford County has been charged in that crime with aggravated assault with a weapon, armed robbery and grand theft. The charges for Stephens dont end there, however. Warren said probable cause was developed to tie Stephens to yet another crimethe burglary of the Delta Food Store on East Brownlee Street on Dec. 15, 2013. This case was solved through multiple followups and interviews as Investigator Kelli McMahan followed a trail of attempted scratch-off lottery ticket transactions, viewing video of the transactions, locating those that attempted the transactions and interviewing them, Warren said. Stephens also faces charges of burglary, felony criminal mischief and dealing in stolen property. On March 29, Antrinious H. Smith, 18, Jamalcolm Earl Isler, 19, Leslie Kendell Neal, 19, and Devon Michael Simmons, 14, were also arrested for the robbery of Little Caesars and they were later charged in the robbery of the Island Food Store. Simmons was also charged with aggravated assault with a weapon. All remain in custody. The juveniles, the apparent gunmen in the robberies, are in the hands of the Department of Juvenile Justice. When the arrests were made in the Little Caesars case, officers found two semiautomatic BB guns believed to be the weapons used in the commission of the crimes.Six under investigation at UCISix employees are caught up in an internal investigation at Union Correctional Institution, according to the state. Department of Corrections Secretary Michael D. Crews released the following statement Tuesday afternoon: Earlier today, I instructed Union Correctional Institution Warden Diane Andrews to place six staff members from UCI on administrative leave pending the outcome of an ongoing, active investigation into alleged criminal activity that compromised the safety of both staff and inmates. The Department of Corrections has zero tolerance for illegal, inappropriate and unbecoming behavior by our officers and staff. This type of behavior is a distraction from our primary mission of public safety and cannot be allowed to dishonor the reputations of thousands of hardworking officers who daily go in harms way to ensure the safety of Florida families. This alleged incident remains under investigation by the Florida Department of Corrections and we cannot comment further on any details at this time. BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor City of Starke officials welcomed the public to see the many changes made at city hall April 4. As part of the festivities, city commissioners marked the anniversary of the citys incorporation by revealing an updated city seal. Funny story: The design of the seal was supposed to be settled years ago, but got lost in the shuffle. In the meantime, as Police Chief Jeff Johnson pointed out in a meeting several months ago, the seal was simply a circle that said City Seal. Now it is a collage of images associated with Starke and its history. Most prominent is the historic courthouse, known for sometime now as the Santa Fe College Andrews Center, Starkes own center for higher education. The seal also displays the iconic water tower and a locomotive reminiscent of the Peggy line, responsible for settlement and commercial growth in the area. And there are also strawberries, important in Bradford Countys agricultural history and an enduring symbol of the areas rural character. Following the unveiling of the city seal, the commission hosted a reception to show off City Clerk Ricky Thompsons renovations of city hall. Our open house today is our citys symbolic gesture of showing goodwill and that we are an open government, Mayor Carolyn Spooner said. It reflects our willingness to allow our constituents and our community to come and see what we are about, and to see what is happening in your city government. It is my hope that every year we can have an open house for our citizens to come and see what is going on at city hall. Spooner outlined many of the commissioners commitments, and noted the number of citizens who contribute to through their volunteerism. And she praised finance department employees John Thiemann and Alica McMillian for their work on the citys finances, particularly McMillans work on online billing for utility customers. We are proud of all of our city employees and their good works, and they take pride in their work and what they do for our city and its citizens, Spooner said. The renovations were important to Thompson, who took office last year, but who has served the city for decades in many capacities, including operations manager. Drawing from dollars in an untouched building fund, Thompson consulted with employees, who helped make design decisions and continued to work patiently while the sometimes chaotic renovations took place. It has been truly a labor of love for the city of Starke, Spooner said, also thanking the county, sheriff and inmate crew under the supervision of Woody Smith. Their work, along with Thompsons own muscle, helped control labor costs. The city commission had already praised the clerks work, and the other local officials and members of the public who attended the open house agreed that the facelift represents a huge improvement. Facelift: City hall, seal have a new look INSIDE: Annexation Approved Your Strawberry Festival Preview Cease and desist: Internet caf told it must close BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A six-month license still proved too long for the Internet caf on the south end of the city of Starke, which the sheriffs office closed last week. Sheriff Gordon Smith visited the proprietor personally April 3 and told him it was it was time to shut it down. This coincided withbut was not directly related toa crackdown on more than 20 cyber cafes statewide last week by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Business owner John Curles received the skeptical and split approval of the city commission in December when he approached the board about licensing his proposed amusement parlor. While legislation to address abuses by sweepstakes-based businesses had gone into effect, Curles said he had consulted with an attorney and purchased retrofitted equipment that complied with the law. He said his games were skill based and not games of chance, and therefore not gambling. Cash prizes, including gift cards, were also out of bounds. The Illegal Gaming Task Force, comprised of Floridas sheriffs, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Office of Statewide Prosecution, has been involved in an undercover investigation if Internet cafs throughout the state and found reason to shut them based on Florida laws related to gambling. Sheriff Smith said he asked them to take a look at Curles business when they were in the area. They went in under cover, they checked it out and found it to be in violation, Smith said. In February, the attorney at the head of Allied Veterans of the World who was accused of leading a multimillion gambling ring in the guise of a veterans charity was sentenced to prison. The Allied Veterans scandal resulted in multiple arrests, the resignation of the lieutenant governor and legislation meant to shut down Internet cafs, sweepstakes parlors and senior arcades of all stripes. The businessesmany of which had nothing to do with Allied Veteransclosed, but then began to appear again, citing loopholes that made them legal. There were around 60 in Jacksonville, alone.

Starke Mayor Carolyn Spooner leads the Pledge of Allegiance. The new lobby includes a couch and conference table. month at 7 p.m. To pick a word, city hall feels modern. The renovation has brought it into the current century, swapping the oranges, yellows and browns from the 1970s with sleek shades of gray and black. The carpet dating back to the opening of the building has been replaced with new carpet and tile, and everything has been repainted. There is new furniture and artwork, renovated workspaces for employees, a resurfaced dias for commissioners, and an adjustable podium for public comments and presentations. The changes werent just for cosmetic reasons, Thompson said. When he came back to the city full time as clerk, he said employees were struggling with allergies and breathing issues, which he believe were caused by the environment. Imaging everything that can accumulate in a carpet over 30 years, he decided it had to go, and with it, every last ceiling tile. For all that has been accomplished over the past several months, theres still work to be completed, and Thompson is sure that hell continue to find projects as time goes on. Like his own work for the city, the improvements at city hall could go on and on.CITYContinued from 1A Pleasant Grove meets April 21The Pleasant Grove Action Group will hold its quarterly meeting on Monday, April 21, at 7 p.m. in the annex of the Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor More than just the city of Starkes look has been modernized. Its customers will soon be able to pay their bills online or over the phone. Its another example of a long-term goal that has finally been realized, and the credit is going to Finance Director Alica McMillian. Employees have undergone training and a new has been bill designed. Customers will no longer receive the postcard billing statements they are used to. The new bills contain more customer information, so they will come sealed in an envelope. In about a months time, customers will be able to go to the citys website, www. cityofstarke.org, to submit their payments, McMillian said. Mayor Carolyn Spooner, who has been vocal in her desire to see the city take this step, is pleased it is happening. It will just make things so much more convenient for our citizens, Spooner said. In addition to making monthly payments, the service will have other advantages, such as the ability to research billing and payment histories. It will also allow customers to conveniently communicate with city staff via email about their service, report outages, request service, etc. At some point, customers will also be able to request paperless statements, so their bills will come electronically instead of through the mail. McMillian said the option to make payments via telephone would also be available. Id like to thank Mrs. McMillan for working so hard on this, City Clerk Ricky Thompson said. I kind of turned her loose on that and let her get it going, and shes done a great job. Coming soon: The city of Starke has a new utility bill format to coincide with its online payment option. Starke annexation may be challenged BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor It was no April Fools Day joke. The Starke City Commission approved an ordinance April 1 annexing the future location of Badcock Furniture in spite of questions that had been raised about the location, and in disregard of the states advertising requirements. Other than an initial question from Mayor Carolyn Spooner about the legitimacy of the move, there was no commission discussion of the annexation. City attorney Paul Sanders said in meeting with the North Florida Regional Planning Council, past annexation actions were examined as well as the proposed annexation. The city map as it stands has been in existence for several years, he said, and any changes to what has been done previously would require going through the contraction process. Theres really no need to do that. There was never any contesting of the placement of the city lines where they are now. The Badcock site is not contiguous to any property in the city limits. According to the city and its attorney, however, the propertys frontage on U.S. 301 makes it contiguous. Starke is claiming that section of highway from Southeast 146th Terrace to just south of the Walmart Supercenter intersection, even though doing so creates three unincorporated enclaves, which are illegal under state law. The law doesnt approve of using highways or other corridors to annex noncontiguous properties, either. Badcock has voluntarily offered to annex the property into the city limits as part of a development agreement with the city. The city is agreeing to extend wastewater service to the property, and in exchange it will acquire the current Badcock property at Walnut and Madison. The extension of water service requires annexation under the citys code, but to sweeten the deal, the commission has offered a 10-year abatement of city property taxes. The commission may not have the authority to do either since it never placed the possibility of tax abatement to encourage economic development before the voters. The commission approved the annexation 4-0 (with Commissioner Danny Nugent absent), although the ordinance was only advertised once. Statute requires two advertisements. Theres nothing illegal about this Badcock annexation. It has not been contested, Sanders said, although he noted that there were concerns from law enforcement, included addressing and jurisdiction. The city plans on adding other properties in that area in the future, so he said the issues about what is and isnt contiguous would eventually rectify themselves. Sheriff Gordon Smith indicated a challenge could be coming, telling city commissioners following the meeting, I guess well find out who has the better attorney. Smith is scheduled to make a presentation regarding the annexation and related concerns to the county commission on April 17.Dont call it a bypassCommissioners looking for ways to keep cars coming BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Concerned that the widespread use of the word bypass will become a selffulfilling prophecy, Starke City Commissioner Tommy Chastain is calling for a new designation. Instead of bypass, Chastain wants the highway to be constructed to the west of the city referred to as a truck route. In fact, it will be a state road State Road 223 to be exact open to all traffic, but Chastain believes signage at either end pointing to a truck route will be more attractive to the truck traffic the city doesnt want and less likely to draw off the other motorists and their business. According to Commissioner Wilbur Waters, the truck route nomenclature is an idea from way back. Chastain is hoping to get the county and chamber of commerce involved in requesting the state officially designate the road a truck route. Chastain said he was inspired by a recent letter to the editor urging local government and business leaders to action. The letter by T.E. Davis asked if Starke had a plan to prepare it for the construction of the bypass and took issue with leaders and businesses for not keeping up with the times. Other towns have kept their small town atmosphere and become tourist meccas, Davis argued, but although Starke has the advantage of 301, drivers come through and see a town that appears to have given up. According to Davis, it is not the bypass but the lack of fresh ideas and a willingness to adapt that will kill the city. With that in mind, Chastain suggested the city, county and chamber begin meeting in workshops to plan for the future. On Monday, County Commissioner Doyle Thomas seemed to be of a similar mind. Speaking of signage, he spoke to the county commission about erecting billboards north and south of Starke that would entice people to come to the city instead of travel around it. Thomas said its something the city might be willing to partner with the county on as both governments benefit when dollars are spent in the city, and he said Tourist Development dollarscollected through the bed tax at local hotelsmight also be a source to fund the promotion of the city. Commissioner Ross Chandler said unlike other areas, there isnt much welcoming people to Bradford County and Starke right now. We want people to know that wed love for them to come through and spend some money, he said. Backyard rabbit and poultry workshop On April 15 from 3 to 4:30 p.m., the UF/IFAS Bradford County Extension Office will host a Backyard Rabbit and Poultry Workshop.

Spring into healthy homes BY SAMARA DEARYFamily & Consumer Science AgentAs we adjust to warmer weather, the moment will arrive when we pack away the heavy comforters and sweaters and break out the shorts and flipflops because spring is here! Just as we prepare for the warm sunny days to return, there are tips to prepare our homes for spring and summer. If you are like me, you like to open your windows on a sunny day to take advantage of the fresh air. During the winter our windows stay closed in order to keep in the heat. Did you know that your health starts from inside your home? Here are some simple tips to follow in order to make the most of the seasonal change. Household chemicals: How often have you read the instructions on household cleaning supplies? If you have ever been at home cleaning and began to feel dizzy, got a headache or felt nauseous, chances are those chemicals are being used in the wrong proportions. Be sure to read the product label for proper use and risk factors. If you do not like the smell of harsh chemicals, vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are great alternatives. Avoid mold: Mold can exist anywhere theres moisture, especially in the bathroom and kitchen. Make sure to keep these areas clean, dry and well ventilated at all times. Mold can also exist in the toilet, closets, bed sheets, upholstery and curtains. Proper ventilation will help eliminate moisture and control mold. Changing your filters: Do you know there are benefits to changing your air conditioner filter? Changing your filter every 30 days (or per manufacturers recommendations) will increase air conditioner efficiency, extend the life of the unit, and your home will have cleaner air. All filters are not created equal. When purchasing filters look for the MERV rating, it is used to scale the efficiency of a filter. The scale goes from 1-16. The higher the rating the more particles the filter captures. These particles range from pollen, dust mites, cockroach debris to animal dander, bacteria and viruses. The more particles caught the cleaner the air in your home. Cigarette smoke: Secondhand cigarette smoke can still cause wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, sinus problems and even cause asthma attacks or make allergies worse. Even if you smoke outside the home, smoke particles such as tar and ammonia still attach to clothing, skin and hair. These travel inside the home and can affect others as well as the air quality in the home. If this is a concern for you the best measure is to take steps to quit smoking. Its healthier for your body as well as your home. As we prepare our homes for the changing season, keep these tips in mind to make sure that your home is a healthy home. Look for future programs offered at the Bradford County Extension Office on ways to create healthy energy efficient homes.

Thursday, April 10, 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. Should I mulch my trees? Gary Hardesty, Starke Mulch is beneficial for establishing trees, but can be harmful if not done correctly. It is very important to suppress growth of weeds and turf grasses around a trees root zone after plantingthis allows the roots to freely penetrate the soil. You can do that by mulching the soil around the rootball or by applying herbicides. University of Florida research has found that mulch provides no more benefit than bare ground. However, organic mulches can have the advantage of adding needed nutrient matter to the soil. Pull mulch away from the trunk and the rootball. The point where the topmost root meets the trunk should be no more than two inches below the surface of the soil its fine if the root is visible at the surface. Mulch should be spread in a thinner layer on the rootball than around its perimeter. Check the root collar periodically and remove any large roots that grow up and into the mulch over the root ball, girdling the tree and killing it. Too much mulch on newly planted trees can cause roots to dry, also leading to stress and tree death. It can hide decay and dead spots on the lower trunk and major roots of established trees as well. For best results, apply a 3-inch thick layer of mulch around the plant. Maintain the area during the establishment period at least two feet in diameter (preferably three feet) for each inch of tree trunk diameter. You can apply a thinner layer of mulch over the rootball for aesthetic reasons if you like, but keep it at least 12 inches from the trunk so the trunk bark can dry. This also allows rainwater, irrigation and air to easily enter the root ball since it does not have to drain through the mulch. In addition to holding water meant for the roots, mulch resting on the trunk can kill the plant by oxygen starvation, death of bark, stem and root diseases and/or prevention of hardening off for winter. Composted yard waste makes excellent mulch and may prevent some plant diseases. Mulches from coniferous plants (like pine straw) are best for conifers, while hardwood mulch is better for hardwood trees. Interestingly, soil around citrus trees should be completely free of weeds, grass or mulch during the winter. These substances act as insulators, preventing solar heat from entering the soil during the day and radiating at night. You will find a wealth of information about this topic at http://bit.ly/PUozxm.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, April 10, 2014 month license, enough time to see if legislators would act to close those loopholes. Last Thursday, the state struck Internet cafs in five counties, seizing equipment and making some arrests. Many of the establishments were tied to a couple of different owners and authorities believe the search warrants obtained for those businesses will lead to further arrests for crimes like money laundering and racketeering. Smith gave Curles the opportunity to cease operations before further law enforcement action was necessary. The sheriff said Curles could have been sold a bill of goods, told that the equipment he was purchasing was acceptable under the law when in reality it was not. Smith said there was no resistance to the cease and desist order, and Curles did what he said he would do all along. In December, Curles told the city commission, If Im going to break the law and be arrested, Im not going to do it. I assured the police that someday if either the sheriff or chief of police finds any part of my operation not compliant with Florida law, Ill shut the doors. There are bills being considered that would allow Internet cafs under strict regulation.CLOSEDContinued from 1A the library is sponsoring a series of basic computer classes, which will include instruction in Internet, email and Microsoft Word.

Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues. Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, programs for children and adults, and books to read, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond. Your public library has print materials for all ages, books on CD, DVDs and e-books to lend, and programs for children and adults. Service to the community has always been the focus of the library. While this aspect has never changed, libraries have grown and evolved in how they provide for the needs of every member of their community. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April. For more information, visit your library or see the librarys Web site at www.newriver.lib. fl.us. LIBRARYContinued from 5A Lakewood cleans upThe rural community of Lakewood, located west of Starke on S.R. 100, has been a Firewise Community for 11 years. In 2003, Lakewood residents were concerned about a muck fire near their homes and wanted to take steps to reduce their wildfire risk. Landowners Arch Thomas and the late Bill Allen were catalysts for the program and instrumental in obtaining national recognition for the communitys efforts. Residents have created and implemented a Firewise plan, held regular Firewise board meetings and conducted 11 annual cleanup days. All of these efforts have greatly reduced the wildfire risk in this community, said Brian Johns, director of emergency management in Bradford County. On Saturday, March 29, 38 Lakewood residents and volunteers met at the Lakewood community lot for a safety briefing, and were divided into chainsaw, brush mowing and limb dragging crews. A Forest Service grant provided Silver Wings Tree Service out of Lawtey to prune tree limbs overhanging houses and remove some hazardous trees. Workers drug logs and limbs to the street. At noon, all of the volunteers enjoyed a community lunch and received Lakewood Firewise camp cups in appreciation of their work. Volunteers and Florida Forest Service firefighters dedicated 255 hours of sweat equity to the cleanup day. Throughout the year, residents had worked an additional 661 hours to benefit the Lakewood Community Firewise program. Johns said, Lakewood was honored to have seven volunteers from Florida Baptist Disaster Relief out to help with the days activities. Thirteen properties were impacted. The city of Starke came out and hauled off numerous logs and limbs. We are grateful to the National Fire Protection Association Firewise Program and the Florida Forest Service and New River Fire Station for providing Lakewood with the resources and information needed to help the residents help themselves to reduce their wildfire risk, said Johns. For more information of the Firewise program go to www. firewise.org. Attract birds If you want to attract more birds and butterflies to your yard, native plants can provide the food and shelter they need. Natives can be as attractive as nursery-grown hybrids and because they are right for this soil and climate, they are easier to grow. On Thursday, April 17, Judy Jull, a former horticulture teacher, will speak on Basic Landscaping with Native Plants at the monthly meeting of the Alligator Creek Garden Club. The club meets at 6:30 p.m. at the Bradford County Extension Office on U.S. 301 in front of the fairgrounds. Refreshments will be served.

The telephone survey is scheduled to last five to seven days. We believe its important to know what our members think about our programs and services, said Communications Manager Wayne Mattox. If you receive a phone call from a survey company, FGI Research, we encourage you to participate. This years phone survey is similar to the one performed for the cooperative last April by FGI Research, a large market research firm based in Chapel Hill, N.C. Conducting a phone survey helps the co-op learn more about the opinions of members less inclined to respond to written surveys. The company will identify itself as conducting a phone survey on behalf of Clay Electric, and we encourage your cooperation, Mattox said. According to FGI Research, the phone survey takes about 7 to 12 minutes. The calls will primarily be made on weeknights from 5:30 to 8:45 p.m. All telephone interviews will be conducted by FGI Research Inc. Professional telephone interviewers will identify themselves as calling on behalf of Clay Electric Cooperative. All telephone interviews will originate from Virginia Beach, Va. Participants can request that someone from Clay Electric contact them regarding a specific issue or concern. If you should have a question about the co-ops survey efforts, please call the member and public relations department in Keystone Heights at 352-4738000 ext. 8265.Easter egg hunt in StarkeThe Jungle Ryderz will be having their first Easter egg hunt at Wainwright Park on Church Street in Starke. The date is Saturday, April 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, please call 904-769-9868.Celebrate nature at the Sustainable Living CenterTo celebrate the return of spring, the Florida Coalition of Peace and Justice is planning an Earth Day event at the Sustainable Living Center on Sunday, April 27. Beginning at 10 a.m., there will be nature walks and presentations about nature photography, water issues in the Santa Fe River basin and a discussion on sustainable living.

individual, you have to do whatever it takes to please that person, Triest said. You can find yourself in situations where a person thinks they know what they want, not knowing if its practical or even possible. Then there is always the question of whether or not you will get paid. With government work you deal with boards or committees. These are people used to discussion and compromise; they know when to defer to someone with more specialized knowledge about a project. Plus, you know the money will be there in the end with no problem. Fifteen years after starting Triest Construction, Triest was finally required by the state to get a contractors license. He was the 624th contractor in the state to take the test and he was not pleased with the result. I had to go to Orlando for the test, Triest said. I was told that no calculators would be allowed so I didnt take one. I got there and everyone else had one and and soon had a thriving business. He concentrated on commercial and, most especially, institution construction, building schools, law-enforcement buildings, hospitals, government buildings, churches and businesses. He said he only built a few houses and made additions to a few more. He preferred commercial work and, most especially, government contracts county, state and federal. When you work for an BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor There was a time, not so very long ago, that a man learned his trade from his father and was judged on what he could do, not by how many licenses and certificates he had hanging on his wall. Local contractor Ernest Triest is one of these men. Born and raised in Bradford County, he learned carpentry from his father and then more advanced construction skills hands-on when he returned home from military service. Triest was born on a family farm in the Theressa area nearly 90 years ago. Besides general farm work, he worked with his father on carpentry jobs not only on the farm, but for other people as well. At age 19, he left midterm in his senior year at Bradford High School to join the Army and serve his country in the second World War. I wanted to volunteer instead of being drafted so I could pick the branch of service I wanted to serve in, Triest said. I had real bad motion sickness and didnt want to get stuck in and airplane or worse, out on the water. Triest served as a communications specialist in the 724th Field Artillery Battalion, headquartered in Shelby, Miss., where he trained for 19 months and lost much of the hearing in one ear due to close proximity to a firing Howitzer during training. After traveling to England by ship from Camp Kilmer, N.J., he spent two months just outside of London, waiting for D-Day. Soon after, his battalion began the march to Berlin, with Triest setting up phone lines along the way. After the war, Triest remained in Germany for a year as part of the occupational troops. He remembers boating on the Rhine River with his buddies on weekends and how cold the water was when they turned the boat over. He said he liked Europe and there are a number of places he would like to return to and see again. Upon returning home after four years of service, Triest completed his senior year of high school and graduated in the same year as his future wife, then Carlie Mae Hall, captain of the BHS womens basketball team. After graduation, Triest went to work for contactors Merritt, Chapman and Scott, out of New York, building the piers for the Mothball Fleet at Green Cove Springs. A number of piers were constructed to serve military ships no longer needed after the war. I worked as a carpenter on the first pier, Triest remembers, and by the time it was complete I had been made pier superintendent. By the time I started working on another one I decided I was interested in going into the construction business for myself. At the time, there was no formal training or certification requirement to become a contractor, so he started Triest Construction in 1949, working at first out of home offices and later out of offices he built on SR 21, where he remained until his retirement on Dec. 31, 1986.

needs. In the past, there was nothing else at that end of the street to entice people to walk that way unless they specifically wanted something to eat. Now, with the creation of the town square and its stage, musical entertainment will draw a crowd and, hopefully, benefit the vendors in that area, Whittle said. What we wanted to do was make a draw and help them as well, Whittle said. The creation of the town square also gives the festival an area to offer all types of fun activities geared toward children. Whittle said the area will offer pony rides, bounce houses and a small Ferris wheel among other activities for the younger festival attendees. Whether youre young or young at heart, theres sure to be something at the Strawberry Festival that will make for a funfilledand tastytime. We have everything, Whittle said.

Youth from United Methodist Church of Starke and the Bradford High School softball players will be in their usual spots selling strawberry shortcake. Plus, Kings Produce and Normans Produce will be in their usual spots with their berries. Live Oaks Pat Gaylord of Cakes by Pat will be set up between the two local berry growers, selling sour-cream pound cake, so its a good opportunity to make your own strawberry shortcake as well. Several vendors have strawberry goodies. Berrylicious, for example, offers strawberry milkshakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries and a chocolate brownie covered with vanilla ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream. It needs about four spoons in it so everyone can share, Whittle said of the brownie-berry treat. For the second straight year, the festival will offer a set schedule of entertainment at the stage in the downtown square. Tara Tillotson begins the entertainment with a 11 a.m. performance on April 12. That days lineup also features Clark Hill at 1:30 p.m., J.J. Strickland at 3:30 p.m. and the Ricky Thompson Band at 5:30 p.m. Sundays entertainment lineup consists of Clay Brooker at noon, Crossfire Warriors at 1:30 p.m. and Amber DeLaCruz at 3:30 p.m. Whittle said having musicians perform throughout the festival is a way of ensuring that the food vendors are exposed to the majority of festival visitors.

The festival is scheduled for 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on April 12 and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on April 13. Pam Whittle, the CEO of the North Florida Chamber of Commerce, which assumed responsibility of the Strawberry Festival in 2005, said no one should have a reason to complain about having nothing to do on the weekend of the festival. The festival has no admission charge and should have something to appeal to anybodys tastes, with vendors offering everything from various crafts and jewelry of all kinds to kitchen items and vacuum cleaners. I guess thats the appeal of (the festival), Whittle said. If you like something, itll be there. Of course, what would the Strawberry Festival be without strawberries? Many vendors sell strawberry-themed items, but if what you want is to taste strawberries, then the festival has you covered.

BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor According to a My Florida website of notable figures, Richard Keith Call came to Florida in 1814 as an aide de camp to Andrew Jackson. Call made Florida his home and served on the legislative council. He was a delegate to Congress and was the third and fifth territorial governor. He led the Florida militia in fighting the Seminoles during his first term, which overlapped with the Second Seminole War (1835-1842). During his second administration, he moved the territory closer to statehood. Call died at his estatethe Grove, near Tallahasseein September 1862. Call is likely to have visited the Bradford/Union area at some point, since a great deal of Native American unrest during the Seminole Wars was centered in what became those two counties. There was a Fort Call in what is now Union County, and even today, a Fort Call Cemetery remains. Starkes entire downtown area was designated as the Historic Call Street District in 1985. The historic area is bounded by Jefferson, Cherry and Madison streets, and Temple Boulevard. Within the 120-acre area are 23 buildings and one structure according to the registry. Architect and architecture historian Ron Haase, a Melrose resident, said recently that the architectural terms American Mercantile and American Commercial Style are rather vague. Buildings in those categories may use elements of many styles, but Haase thought most buildings in Starkes business district might fall into the broadest interpretations of the terms. There are subsets of the commercial style: Western Mercantile buildings are usually those wooden feed stores and dance halls you see in dusty, western movies. Starke architect Spyros Drivas cited two influences on Starkes cityscape, the first of which he called Cracker Vernacular. This is not a pejorative term, but rather a term noting that most buildings from the 1800s were designed by a buildings owner and his or her contractors, with input from Floridas early carpenters and brick masons who built them. Sometimes the buildings were designed on the fly as they were being built. Officially, the term American Mercantile refers to multi-story commercial structures built in Chicago around the turn of the 20th century. It was a post-Civil War movement that influenced the design of commercial buildings in cities nationwide, including Starke, Drivas said. There might be a little Victorian influence here, a little Classical Greek or Roman there, even some early Frank Lloyd Wright prairie architecture tucked into the Chicago Schools American Commercial Style. The Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission said, While the purest description of Commercial style buildings most fits early skyscrapers, many much shorter buildings are sometimes described as Commercial style. These one-to four-story brick buildings date from the same era, were designed for commercial use, have large pane windows on the ground floor and flat roofs, often with decorative parapets The subtype of the style is a more vernacular version that is more prevalent in Pennsylvania than the true high-style Commercial style skyscrapers. That description is also true of buildings on Call Street in Starke. Photographic evidence shows early buildings along Call Street were built of wood, like in western movie towns. A prime example was the Starke House Hotel, which was built around 1895 and survived until the 1940s. However, early photographs and insurance maps of Starke indicate that brick was also used in some of Starkes earliest buildings. There are a number of reasons for Starkes gradual transformation from wood to brickand occasionally stone during the late 19th century: the first was the arrival of railroads, which could deliver heavier building materials near or into the downtown area and in large quantities. The railroad didnt so much arrive in Starke; its more accurate to say that the Yulee railroad came to the piney woods, and Starke grew up around it. A major reason for the transition from wood to brick was the great Chicago fire of 1871, which left that vast, largely wooden city burned almost to the ground. Starke, too, had a fire that burned two blocks of the city in 1895. The great Jacksonville fire in 1901 may also have prompted Starkes city fathers to discourage wooden structures in the downtown commercial district. Insurance companies and city ordinances combined to push for sturdier, more fireretardant structures. Its not that the Chicago fire influenced Starke alone; it changed urban commercial architecture all over the United States. Haase suggested that the move from wood to stone and brick structures was also due to a growing trend toward bigcity-style window shopping, especially in ladies commercial districts. This called for streetlevel windows and larger cutouts in outer walls. Stronger I-beams and posts became necessary to support walls with less footage holding them up at street level. Whatever style Starkes early commercial buildings incorporated on Call Street, they had common characteristics. For one, wooden and one or two brick buildings in Starke had tall facades with shorter buildings behind them. This is actually a holdover from the Italianate Gothic style, Haase said. From the street at least, tall facades made the buildings look bigger and grander than they actually were. This idea came to America with immigrants and wealthy commercial classes taking grand, European tours. There are two such brick buildings in Starke that illustrate this style: a gray, empty building across from the Bradford County Telegraph and Starkes Masonic Lodge on Orange Street. During the transition from wood, where did all those bricks come from? Probably from Starke. An early advertisement in an 1883 East Florida Telegraph is headlined, Bricks! Bricks! The rest of the ad is unreadable in todays available sources. The vendor was apparently Mac Williams and Brown in Starke. Former Bradford resident Mrs. Jay S. Brown remembered that when her familythe L.C. Hull familyarrived in Starke in 1878, her father started their homestead from scratch, clearing land, sawing timber and making bricks. Her older brother located clay on a parcel of land he purchased near a local creek; the Hull family built a kiln and made brick molds. At first, they turned out enough bricks to build their fireplace and a kitchen flue. L.C. Hull, general store owner and brick maker, was advertising his bricks in the East Florida Courier by March 1888. By 1890, Hull and his son Newt had bricks for sale and advertised them in local newspapers. Bricks available at the depot or kiln, the ads read. Decorative wooden corbels European scrollwork gimcracks that support or appear to support windows or ledgeswere found On Call: notes on Starkes historic architectureCall Street was named after Richard Keith Call, Indian of territorial Florida. on many of Starkes wooden buildings, but the style didnt transfer to brick structures, although cement versions of the filigree existed. However, while classical corbels arent found, decorative corbelled brickwork parapets are an almost universal feature on many of Starkes historic structures. Call Street visitors may also notice a penchant for taking an existing building and wrapping it in plaster or stucco. This may have been an unreliable attempt at fire retardation. Early photos of the Hemingway Building at the northeast corner of Call and Walnut show it as wooden clapboard. By now, it has long since been plastered over. While the Dover Building at Thompson and Call is entirely brick, it also got a new plaster skin in the 1940s. Stucco was This 1800s photo shows the Call Street block between Walnut (at left of photo) and a portion of what came to be called the brick Dover Building at the corner of Call and Thompson streets.

Thanks again!Riding club: Thanks for support in raising $5,000 Dear Editor: Im unhappy to learn that 40 cents of every one of our 2013 federal tax dollars went to fund current and past wars, according to the Quaker advocacy group the Friends Committee on National Legislation. We have some critical needs as a country -how to respond to the effects of climate change, how to repair our crumbling bridges and roadways, how to bridge the growing divide between rich and poor. I would like to see more of our tax dollars going to these priorities rather than to the profit driven military contractors and pentagon. What do we as a Christian country not get about Thou Shalt Not Kill. If we spend as much tax money on helping and healing, as is spent on killing, torturing, and crippling physically and mentally, the More tax dollars should go to helping and healingDear Editor: Im not sure why Mr. Busby directed his letter (Time For A Change) to me.   However, since he did I will reply.   Ive not seen or heard of any complaints about the response time or service from the   UC   Sheriffs office.   While Im sure there have been some, theyve certainly not made the front page. Mr. Busby wants change.   There has been change.   John H. Whitehead and Jerry Whitehead are no longer the sheriff of Union County.   Brad Whitehead is now serving out the remainder of his late fathers term.   There will be an election in November and the voters of Union County will decide who will continue to serve as sheriff.   I support Brad Whitehead. I truly support Mr. Busbys right to his opinion and freedom of speech.   However,   I will continue to condemn those who spout out useless and unproven facts, ie.   (Good Ole Boy System, and Family Business) to describe the   Union County Sheriffs Office.   The real facts are   the voters of Union County elect our sheriff at the ballot   box.   Have in the past and will continue in the future. To describe our electoral system in this manner is totally asinine. Get involved, work for and support the candidate    o f your choice.   But lets be civil while doing so. Thank You Jack SappResponse to Time for a change world would not only be a much better place, the USA would not be in such a dangerous position, due to the terror we have inflicted on the rest of the world, since 911.                          I hope that my senators, Rubio and Nelson, will work to make this happen in the coming year. They can start by eliminating the more than $100 billion war profiteering of military contractors.   If we die trying to help and heal and try to bring peace in peaceful ways, we will gain everlasting life. The way we are going now, not only insures torture, destruction and death, on our enemies, but also for ourselves. Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself for the love of God. He also said Love Thy Enemy. By doing this according to His Word, we will be saving our own lives here on earth, as well as for eternity. Sincerely, Marie Fitzsimmons Dear Editor: I love my job. Teaching children in Bradford County has been rewarding for me in too many ways to count.   I thank God for it often.   Last year the governor of Florida said he was giving each county $2500 for each teacher a raise.   Sounded good to me.   After about five or six years of literally no raise and even a cut with the 3% taken for retirement and increased insurance payment my monthly salary went down about $200 a month.   So you can see how good the governors deal was to me and many other teachers in this county.   Well, I   s aw county after county getting their money and for many that exact amount.   These are counties that pay more to begin with.   I see the proposal now is we get $1400 of that amount.   T hat math says we get about 56% of what the state intended.   Seems sort of insulting after going half a decade with nothing and then seeing the intended money disappear like that.   To go one step further.   Teachers at the beginning of their careers get a much higher raise percentage wise than some   in this configuration.   A first year teacher essentially gets a 4% raise while those of us at the other end (twenty eight I believe) get a 2.5% raise.   Honestly, I did not go into teaching for the money. I figured if you go to college to get the degree that allows me to work with kids the compensation would be enough.   I have discovered State teacher raise not what was expectedthat teachers with a masters degree in education are   lower paid than most professionals with a BS degree.   I have learned to live with that.   I love my job. But when big brother (the state) finally says here is the money, I have to be a little disappointed when a little over 50% makes it to us.   I do appreciate all the work that went into negotiating these raises but I thought it was pretty much cut and dried with that money allocated for us.

As a rule of thumb, gabled buildingswooden or brick were an earlier style than flatroofed buildings, the 1902 courthouse being one of several exceptions. Gabled roofs made more sense in snow-bound climes up north, but less so in Florida. The slippery slopes of pitched roofs were more expensive and more difficult and expensive to maintain. However, flat roofs required good drainage and conscientious care and maintenance. Comparing 1800s photos with Call Street buildings today reveals buildings that changed from gabled to flat roofsand vice versaover the century. The buildings in the Historic Call Street District were restored or renovated during a downtown revitalization program carried out with a $500,000 grant around 1986. A Community Redevelopment Plan for the historic area was put into place in 2007. During those renovations, many buildings were tied together with a false faade, stucco, paint job or an awning to make two or more buildings appear to be a unit, though they didnt start out that way. In some cases, urn-shaped decorations and filigree atop building parapets were removed, presumably for safetys sake, a level skyline or changing tastes. A walking tour of Call Street starting at the railroad and moving toward U.S. 301 illustrates a number of Starkes architectural trends along Call Street over the years.

It was an 0-4 showing, but the Bradford High School softball team lost each game by an average of just two runs as the Tornadoes got the chance to see where they stood compared to some of the best teams in the state at the annual Kissimmee Klassic, which was held April 3-5. Bradford played three defending state champions in a loaded Blue Division that also featured fellow District 5-4A member P.K. Yonge and defending Class 6A champion Columbia, which won the was allowed to use it. Needless to say I failed the test. Returning home. Triest resolved to try again. I had two men working for me as estimators; one was a University of Florida graduate in building construction and the other held the same degree from Auburn. I caught them in the office and told them that at least one of the three of us was going to have to pass that test. We had school in the office in the evenings after work, Triest said. We went to Tampa for the next exam, carrying calculators, briefcases and everything else we could think of and all three of us passed that time. Triest scored high and kept his license through the rest of the life of his business and for about 15 years after his retirement, finally allowing his certification to go to the inactive list for about eight years before finally letting it go when he discovered how time consuming it would be to get it reinstated. Triest married Carlie Mae, literally the girl-next-door, in 1950. Her family had the farm right next to his, but she says she has no memory of him until he returned home from the war. While staying home as a homemaker and mother, she quickly learned that she would be affected by the business as well. Ernest would get up, sometimes very early, and leave the house no later than 6 a.m., Carlie Mae said. He would be gone all day and never got home before 6 p.m. This went on for many years, sometimes seven days a week. Although she had little direct contact with the business, she found that she sometimes had to provide support services of a sort. Triest worked on a large number of projects, as many as 28 at a time. Not only did he have to oversee all of this, he was constantly seeking more work, making bids and attending meetings. Sometimes he said he felt he needed to be several places at a time. Since this was not possible, he did the next best thing: He drove fast and encouraged others to do the same on his behalf.

I saw a Florida Highway Patrol officer with several cars pulled over to the side and he motioned for me to join the line to get my speeding ticket. I took my ticket and went on my way. The very next day I got up at 4 a.m. and headed for Madison. I had it rolling pretty good when I got stopped again for speeding. It was the same FHP officer who, when he looked at my license, asked me if he hadnt written me a ticket just the day before. Another time, Triest needed to get to a bid opening, for which he was unprepared, in Gainesville. He talked his brother-in-law into driving him so he could ride and finish up the work on the bid. We were running really short on time, so I told him to do whatever it took to get me there and that I would come get him out of jail if necessary, Triest remembered. We got on Main Street in Gainesville at 23rd Street with a city policeman right behind us. I kept telling my brother-inlaw not to stop, just keep going, so we ran on down the road, maybe 15 or 20 mph over the speed limit. We pulled up outside the bank, where the bid opening was, with several cars with lights and sirens going pulling in right behind us. I grabbed my briefcase and ran inside, getting there with only about 30 seconds to spare. When I came back out the police had my brother-in-law in custody and he had explained what was going on. The officer told me that it was a good thing that I was running into the bank with the briefcase rather than out because then he would have shot me. As it was, I had to pay for a ticket and a fine. Eventually Triest had his drivers license suspended for speeding, so Carlie Mae had to add chauffeur services to her list of wifely duties. She would drive me during daylight, business hours, Triest said, but when it was really early in the morning or after dark I still pretty much drove myself. Triest worked on hundreds of construction projects over the years, working in 15 Florida counties and sometimes employing as many as 150 people at one time. He completed 69 projects just in Bradford County, including the first county health department building ($34,000 to build and three times that to renovate 40 years later), the first courthouse on US 301 (torn down to make room for the one now in use), the first six buildings of Southside Elementary School, the first two phases of Bradford High School, a wing at Shands Starke (which was torn down to make room for a new addition about 10 years ago) and two banks, including Community State. After his retirement from Triest Construction he still stayed busy. He went to work for Bradford County and the Bradford County School Board as a consultant and project manager. He worked on the controversial project at the new Starke Elementary, where problems with the contractor, G.H. Johnson plagued the project with substandard work and costly delays. He then went on to a project at Bradford Middle School, then the county safety complex. He was made county construction specialist for the courthouse addition project, which he said was another difficult one. I was originally hired by the county for eight months for the courthouse additions, Triest said. The project ended up running about two years over the time limit, causing the total project to take three years to complete. Once again, most of the issues were with the contractor. Triest is still keeping busy, despite the fact he will turn 90 in May. Most recently, he served as project manager for the construction of Orange Heights Baptist Church, where his sonin-law is pastor. He will soon be playing that role again when the church breaks ground on a family life education center. Besides enjoying time with his bride of 64 years and his brood of two children (having lost a son to leukemia many years before), three grandchildren and five greatgrandchildren, Triest also likes to fill his days with honeydos, gardening and eating what he grows. He also likes to cook, and both he and his wife love to fish in both freshand salt-water. Although never a hunter, he is still a good shot, and last year shot a couple of squirrels so his great-grandkids could see what they tasted like. They really werent too sure about it, Triest said, but once they tasted them, it was all over; they loved it. Asked for a philosophy of life, Triest simply said, I like to stay busy, to try new things and, most of all, I love a challenge.

Hummingbirds will return from South America, and black bears will become more active following winter. The weather disruptions from two weeks ago have mellowed into a typical spring season. The local bass tournaments indicate as much.   The overall weights at the tournaments have resumed the levels that reflect the spring bass spawn. The representation of the large female bass in the tournament catches will soon diminish, and the secret to finding the big ladies will become water depth and cover. Acknowledging the obvious spring weather, the specks that prefer cooler water are moving to the deeper depths, and the bluegills are moving to the shoreline cover.   The next full moonor at least the one after the nextwill likely trigger the bluegill, redbreast and shellcracker spawn.

It follows that the plentiful rain this area has experienced over the last summer and winter has been a great benefit to the levels in those bodies of water. What has been a godsend, however, to all of our lakes during the last year could possibly have a divided impact to different areas in the future. The accompanying photograph of the Hampton Lake home of Jimmy and Lisa Prevatt shows the water level to be 3 to 4 feet below the bottom of their lakefront door.   Excessively heavy rains in a short period of time could have an adverse impact on Hampton Lake, Sampson Lake and downtown Lake Butler residents. Conversely, the accompanying photograph of the Lake Brooklyn bowl that must be full before water will flow from it to Lake Geneva is totally dry. That is not to say that the Keystone Lake levels have not made significant improvement over the last year, because they have.   The accompanying photograph of water under the Highway 21 bridge over Brooklyn Lake shows a small stream of water rushing from the northern portion of the lake. The accompanying current photograph of the bridge indicates that the water level has risen to the point that it now stretches across the entire lower runway. However, what is good for one community does not necessarily have to be bad for the other. Hopefully, if the wetter trend continues, the continued rainfall will not come in the form of a deluge or a fall hurricane, but will be spread out like it has been over the last year. Regardless of the human impact, the additional rainfall See FINS, 7B This photograph of the Highway 21 bridge over Lake Brooklyn improvement over last summer.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Union County High School seniors Austin Dukes and Geordyn Green have dreamed of playing big-time football since they were kids playing together in the yard, Dukes making believe he was Brian Urlacher and Green pretending he was Deion Sanders. They hope Atlanta Sports Academy will get them closer to that dream, signing letters of intent to play there during a March 26 ceremony in the UCHS Thursday, April 10, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 11B included wins over Bradford (2), Clay, Interlachen and Oakleaf. Team members Jazzy Budny, Kathy Nguyen, Hannah Fox, Crystal Alonzo and Jessica Grimaldo then led the Indians to a second-place tie with Ridgeview in the District 4-2A tournament.

The players said they had offers from Division II schools, but they believe a year at Atlanta Sports Academy can put them in the position to play at a bigger school. We had smaller, D-II offers, Green said, but we knew we had the ability to do more than D-II, so were going to go there, take this opportunity and advance on it. Dukes said, Im extremely excited about this opportunity. I really am. Though Atlanta Sports Academy can be viewed as a prep school, Union head coach Ronny Pruitt said his players decisions to go there were no way based on a need to improve academic performance. Dukes and Green both couldve been accepted to larger schools because of their grades and become walk-ons, Pruitt said. This opportunity is all about improving as athletes and hopefully earning athletic scholarships to larger schools. I think its going to help them and give them a little more time to develop physically and, hopefully, open a door at the next level to what theyre looking for, Pruitt said. Dukes said, I know Im not developed fully. I know this extra year will be really good. Its basically like a redshirt year at a major college. Green said the decision to turn down offers from smaller schools wasnt easy, but in the end, the path he and Dukes have chosen seems to be the best for what they want to accomplish. You think about playing time and all the opportunities youd have at D-II, Green said, but after weighing the goods and bads of each, it kind of made the decision a lot easier to swallow. Dukes has played on the offensive line, but linebacker is where he has made his mark, earning first-team all-state honors this past season. Pruitt said Dukes play at middle linebacker was the key to the overall defenses success and allowed the team to take chances on the outside with its defensive ends. We cant do a lot of that stuff without knowing that were going to be secure up in the middle, Pruitt said. Austin allowed us the opportunity to gamble and do things that otherwise might be unsound, but we had athletes out there who could make it happen. We knew that he could plug the middle. Pruitt said Dukes also brought emotion to a defense that really featured quite a lot of quiet kids. One of those players who didnt seem to show a lot of outside emotion was Green, who earned second-team all-state honors at defensive back. Greens play on the field, though, makes quite a statement. Whatever position he gets put in hell make some noise at, Pruitt said. Green also made plays happen on the offensive side of the ball, lining up at running back and wide receiver. Pruitt believes offense is where Green will have his biggest impact at the next level. The coach described plays where it seemed Green was going backward or about to be tackled, only to realize a few seconds later he was sprinting downfield. Hes one of the more dynamic players when he gets the ball in his hands, Pruitt said. Green said he can envision himself as a slot receiver or scat back at the next level, which he said would be a lot of fun. However, it doesnt matter where a team decides to play him. The opportunity is all he asks for. Its all about getting the chance, Green said. It doesnt matter what side of the ball you put me on. Im going to compete to highest of my potential. When the players were asked what their dream school would See SIGN, 12B Linebacker Austin Dukes signs his letter of intent as his father, Bruce, looks on. Photo by Lola Lacy.

Its a dream that began early in life. I remember back in Pop Warner days, (Green) used to come over to my house, Dukes said. We used to always dream about playing somewhere big Im talking big time. Perhaps Atlanta Sports Academy will make that dream a reality. At the very least, it gives Dukes and Green at least one more team to play together on. 12B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 10, 2014 SCHOONER NETTLESSMOKED SAUSAGE16-OZIDAHOPOTATOES10 LB BAGFRESH MANGOES$5992 $7$2792 lb PRICES AVAILABLE09 |10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 wed thurs fri sat sun mon tues Open 7 Days a Week 8am to 8pm1371 South Walnut St. (Hwy 301) Starke (904)368-9188 Amazing quality.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Further investigation into the robberies Starke Police Department detailed last week has led to additional charges for one suspect and the arrest of another. Police Capt. Barry Warren said one of the teens arrested for his alleged involvement in the armed robbery of Little Caesars on March 29 has also been tied to the robbery of Sams Discount Liquor on South Walnut Street. The liquor store was targeted by two suspects on Jan. 29 around 7:41 p.m. Police were told that a masked subject displaying a black handgun entered the store, pointed the weapon at the clerk and demanded money. A second subject, also believed to be masked, stood at the door. The clerk gave them an undisclosed amount of cash from the register, both subjects fled the business. Warren said they were last seen leaving on foot. According to Warren, one of those individuals was 19-year-old Derrick Smith Jr. of Starke. After his arrest on March 29, for the robbery of Little Caesars, Smith was also linked to the March 26 robbery of Island Food Store, and now the robbery of the liquor store, too. He is charged with armed robbery and grand theft and remains jailed with bail set at $560,000. The second subject was also identified during the investigation and arrested. Dillon Wayne Stephens, 16, of Bradford County has been charged in that crime with aggravated assault with a weapon, armed robbery and grand theft. The charges for Stephens dont end there, however. Warren said probable cause was developed to tie Stephens to yet another crimethe burglary of the Delta Food Store on East Brownlee Street on Dec. 15, 2013. This case was solved through multiple followups and interviews as Investigator Kelli McMahan followed a trail of attempted scratch-off lottery ticket transactions, viewing video of the transactions, locating those that attempted the transactions and interviewing them, Warren said. Stephens also faces charges of burglary, felony criminal mischief and dealing in stolen property. On March 29, Antrinious H. Smith, 18, Jamalcolm Earl Isler, 19, Leslie Kendell Neal, 19, and Devon Michael Simmons, 14, were also arrested for the robbery of Little Caesars and they were later charged in the robbery of the Island Food Store. Simmons was also charged with aggravated assault with a weapon. All remain in custody. The juveniles, the apparent gunmen in the robberies, are in the hands of the Department of Juvenile Justice. When the arrests were made in the Little Caesars case, officers found two semiautomatic BB guns believed to be the weapons used in the commission of the crimes. Six under investigation at UCI Six employees are caught up in an internal investigation at Union Correctional Institution, according to the state. Department of Corrections Secretary Michael D. Crews released the following statement Tuesday afternoon: Earlier today, I instructed Union Correctional Institution Warden Diane Andrews to place six staff members from UCI on administrative leave pending the outcome of an ongoing, active investigation into alleged criminal activity that compromised the safety of both staff and inmates. The Department of Corrections has zero tolerance for illegal, inappropriate and unbecoming behavior by our officers and staff. This type of behavior is a distraction from our primary mission of public safety and cannot be allowed to dishonor the reputations of thousands of hardworking officers who daily go in harms way to ensure the safety of Florida families. This alleged incident remains under investigation by the Florida Department of Corrections and we cannot comment further on any details at this time. BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor City of Starke officials welcomed the public to see the many changes made at city hall April 4. As part of the festivities, city commissioners marked the anniversary of the citys incorporation by revealing an updated city seal. Funny story: The design of the seal was supposed to be settled years ago, but got lost in the shuffle. In the meantime, as Police Chief Jeff Johnson pointed out in a meeting several months ago, the seal was simply a circle that said City Seal. Now it is a collage of images associated with Starke and its history. Most prominent is the historic courthouse, known for sometime now as the Santa Fe College Andrews Center, Starkes own center for higher education. The seal also displays the iconic water tower and a locomotive reminiscent of the Peggy line, responsible for settlement and commercial growth in the area. And there are also strawberries, important in Bradford Countys agricultural history and an enduring symbol of the areas rural character. Following the unveiling of the city seal, the commission hosted a reception to show off City Clerk Ricky Thompsons renovations of city hall. Our open house today is our citys symbolic gesture of showing goodwill and that we are an open government, Mayor Carolyn Spooner said. It reflects our willingness to allow our constituents and our community to come and see what we are about, and to see what is happening in your city government. It is my hope that every year we can have an open house for our citizens to come and see what is going on at city hall. Spooner outlined many of the commissioners commitments, and noted the number of citizens who contribute to through their volunteerism. And she praised finance department employees John Thiemann and Alica McMillian for their work on the citys finances, particularly McMillans work on online billing for utility customers. We are proud of all of our city employees and their good works, and they take pride in their work and what they do for our city and its citizens, Spooner said. The renovations were important to Thompson, who took office last year, but who has served the city for decades in many capacities, including operations manager. Drawing from dollars in an untouched building fund, Thompson consulted with employees, who helped make design decisions and continued to work patiently while the sometimes chaotic renovations took place. It has been truly a labor of love for the city of Starke, Spooner said, also thanking the county, sheriff and inmate crew under the supervision of Woody Smith. Their work, along with Thompsons own muscle, helped control labor costs. The city commission had already praised the clerks work, and the other local officials and members of the public who attended the open house agreed that the facelift represents a huge improvement. Facelift: City hall, seal have a new look INSIDE: Annexation Approved Your Strawberry Festival Preview Cease and desist: Internet caf told it must close BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A six-month license still proved too long for the Internet caf on the south end of the city of Starke, which the sheriffs office closed last week. Sheriff Gordon Smith visited the proprietor personally April 3 and told him it was it was time to shut it down. This coincided withbut was not directly related toa crackdown on more than 20 cyber cafes statewide last week by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Business owner John Curles received the skeptical and split approval of the city commission in December when he approached the board about licensing his proposed amusement parlor. While legislation to address abuses by sweepstakes-based businesses had gone into effect, Curles said he had consulted with an attorney and purchased retrofitted equipment that complied with the law. He said his games were skill based and not games of chance, and therefore not gambling. Cash prizes, including gift cards, were also out of bounds. The Illegal Gaming Task Force, comprised of Floridas sheriffs, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Office of Statewide Prosecution, has been involved in an undercover investigation if Internet cafs throughout the state and found reason to shut them based on Florida laws related to gambling. Sheriff Smith said he asked them to take a look at Curles business when they were in the area. They went in under cover, they checked it out and found it to be in violation, Smith said. In February, the attorney at the head of Allied Veterans of the World who was accused of leading a multimillion gambling ring in the guise of a veterans charity was sentenced to prison. The Allied Veterans scandal resulted in multiple arrests, the resignation of the lieutenant governor and legislation meant to shut down Internet cafs, sweepstakes parlors and senior arcades of all stripes. The businessesmany of which had nothing to do with Allied Veteransclosed, but then began to appear again, citing loopholes that made them legal. There were around 60 in Jacksonville, alone.

The renovation has brought it into the current century, swapping the oranges, yellows and browns from the 1970s with sleek shades of gray and black. The carpet dating back to the opening of the building has been replaced with new carpet and tile, and everything has been repainted. There is new furniture and artwork, renovated workspaces for employees, a resurfaced dias for commissioners, and an adjustable podium for public comments and presentations. The changes werent just for cosmetic reasons, Thompson said. When he came back to the city full time as clerk, he said employees were struggling with allergies and breathing issues, which he believe were caused by the environment. Imaging everything that can accumulate in a carpet over 30 years, he decided it had to go, and with it, every last ceiling tile. For all that has been accomplished over the past several months, theres still work to be completed, and Thompson is sure that hell continue to find projects as time goes on. Like his own work for the city, the improvements at city hall could go on and on.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor More than just the city of Starkes look has been modernized. Its customers will soon be able to pay their bills online or over the phone. Its another example of a long-term goal that has finally been realized, and the credit is going to Finance Director Alica McMillian. Employees have undergone training and a new has been bill designed. Customers will no longer receive the postcard billing statements they are used to. The new bills contain more customer information, so they will come sealed in an envelope. In about a months time, customers will be able to go to the citys website, www. cityofstarke.org, to submit their payments, McMillian said. Mayor Carolyn Spooner, who has been vocal in her desire to see the city take this step, is pleased it is happening. It will just make things so much more convenient for our citizens, Spooner said. In addition to making monthly payments, the service will have other advantages, such as the ability to research billing and payment histories. It will also allow customers to conveniently communicate with city staff via email about their service, report outages, request service, etc. At some point, customers will also be able to request paperless statements, so their bills will come electronically instead of through the mail. McMillian said the option to make payments via telephone would also be available. Id like to thank Mrs. McMillan for working so hard on this, City Clerk Ricky Thompson said. I kind of turned her loose on that and let her get it going, and shes done a great job. Coming soon: The city of Starke has a new utility bill format to coincide with its online payment option. Starke annexation may be challenged BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor It was no April Fools Day joke. The Starke City Commission approved an ordinance April 1 annexing the future location of Badcock Furniture in spite of questions that had been raised about the location, and in disregard of the states advertising requirements. Other than an initial question from Mayor Carolyn Spooner about the legitimacy of the move, there was no commission discussion of the annexation. City attorney Paul Sanders said in meeting with the North Florida Regional Planning Council, past annexation actions were examined as well as the proposed annexation. The city map as it stands has been in existence for several years, he said, and any changes to what has been done previously would require going through the contraction process. Theres really no need to do that. There was never any contesting of the placement of the city lines where they are now. The Badcock site is not contiguous to any property in the city limits. According to the city and its attorney, however, the propertys frontage on U.S. 301 makes it contiguous. Starke is claiming that section of highway from Southeast 146th Terrace to just south of the Walmart Supercenter intersection, even though doing so creates three unincorporated enclaves, which are illegal under state law. The law doesnt approve of using highways or other corridors to annex noncontiguous properties, either. Badcock has voluntarily offered to annex the property into the city limits as part of a development agreement with the city. The city is agreeing to extend wastewater service to the property, and in exchange it will acquire the current Badcock property at Walnut and Madison. The extension of water service requires annexation under the citys code, but to sweeten the deal, the commission has offered a 10-year abatement of city property taxes. The commission may not have the authority to do either since it never placed the possibility of tax abatement to encourage economic development before the voters. The commission approved the annexation 4-0 (with Commissioner Danny Nugent absent), although the ordinance was only advertised once. Statute requires two advertisements. Theres nothing illegal about this Badcock annexation. It has not been contested, Sanders said, although he noted that there were concerns from law enforcement, included addressing and jurisdiction. The city plans on adding other properties in that area in the future, so he said the issues about what is and isnt contiguous would eventually rectify themselves. Sheriff Gordon Smith indicated a challenge could be coming, telling city commissioners following the meeting, I guess well find out who has the better attorney. Smith is scheduled to make a presentation regarding the annexation and related concerns to the county commission on April 17.Dont call it a bypassCommissioners looking for ways to keep cars coming BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Concerned that the widespread use of the word bypass will become a selffulfilling prophecy, Starke City Commissioner Tommy Chastain is calling for a new designation. Instead of bypass, Chastain wants the highway to be constructed to the west of the city referred to as a truck route. In fact, it will be a state road State Road 223 to be exact open to all traffic, but Chastain believes signage at either end pointing to a truck route will be more attractive to the truck traffic the city doesnt want and less likely to draw off the other motorists and their business. According to Commissioner Wilbur Waters, the truck route nomenclature is an idea from way back. Chastain is hoping to get the county and chamber of commerce involved in requesting the state officially designate the road a truck route. Chastain said he was inspired by a recent letter to the editor urging local government and business leaders to action. The letter by T.E. Davis asked if Starke had a plan to prepare it for the construction of the bypass and took issue with leaders and businesses for not keeping up with the times. Other towns have kept their small town atmosphere and become tourist meccas, Davis argued, but although Starke has the advantage of 301, drivers come through and see a town that appears to have given up. According to Davis, it is not the bypass but the lack of fresh ideas and a willingness to adapt that will kill the city. With that in mind, Chastain suggested the city, county and chamber begin meeting in workshops to plan for the future. On Monday, County Commissioner Doyle Thomas seemed to be of a similar mind. Speaking of signage, he spoke to the county commission about erecting billboards north and south of Starke that would entice people to come to the city instead of travel around it. Thomas said its something the city might be willing to partner with the county on as both governments benefit when dollars are spent in the city, and he said Tourist Development dollarscollected through the bed tax at local hotelsmight also be a source to fund the promotion of the city. Commissioner Ross Chandler said unlike other areas, there isnt much welcoming people to Bradford County and Starke right now. We want people to know that wed love for them to come through and spend some money, he said. Backyard rabbit and poultry workshop On April 15 from 3 to 4:30 p.m., the UF/IFAS Bradford County Extension Office will host a Backyard Rabbit and Poultry Workshop. This workshop will provide the most up-to-date information on rabbit and poultry production. Materials covered will benefit both the novice and advanced owners. New owners are encouraged to attend to learn the basics of caring for your animal. As a result, participants will be able to properly care for rabbits, poultry and other small-scale livestock enterprises. Guest speakers will include Dr. Mike Davis, UF/IFAS Baker County ag agent, and Jonael Bosques, UF/IFAS Marion County Extension small farms agent.

What you should know Testing time is here. Thank you for supporting your student and your school. Please carefully read the information below. If you have any questions, please call Carol Clyatt at the school board office at 904-966-6816. What is the purpose for testing? Testing measures how well a student has learned the curriculum for a certain grade. The results will be used to help determine if a student will be retained and what courses a student will be placed in for the 2014-2015 school year. Please encourage your student to do his or her very best. This is important at all grades, including Bradford virtual students. Information and practice materials are located at the following website: http://fcat. fldoe.org. Be positive: Your attitude is visible to your child. Things to know There will be computerbased testing for all students in grades 6-10 in reading and grade 5-6 in math. In Bradford County, all students completing Algebra 1, Algebra 1B, Geometry, Biology, U.S. History or Civics will have their EOC score count as 30 percent of their final grade. Algebra I is the only endof-course assessment that is a graduation requirement. Practice tests for computerbased testing are available at www.flassessments.com/ePAT. Testing policies Rules acknowledgement Prior to testing, students will be asked to affirm a Testing Rules Acknowledgment that reads: I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated. Electronic devices policy If your student is found with any electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones and smartphones, during testing or during breaks, their tests will be invalidated. Leaving campusIf your student leaves campus before completing the test (for lunch, an appointment, or illness, etc.), he or she will not be allowed to complete the test. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please also be mindful to not schedule appointments on testing days. Discussing test content after testingThe last portion of the testing rules read to students before they affirm the acknowledgment states, After the test, you may not discuss the test items with anyone. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on websites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. If students are found sharing information about test items, even without the intent to cheat, their tests will be invalidated. Test invalidationsStudents are responsible for working on their own during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. The FDOE employs a test security company, Caveon Test Security, to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns. Student results within a school that are found to have extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated. Testing schedule FCAT retakes for reading and math: April 14-May 2. FCAT reading, math and science: April 15-26. U.S. History EOC: April 2325. Biology EOC: April 28-May 2. Algebra I EOC: May 7-13. Geometry EOC: May 13-16. Civics EOC: May 5. Adult students will be tested at the technical center. Contact Cynthia Ross at 904-966-6776 for more information. Please contact the guidance counselor for more information on specific dates within each window. Home-schooled students State law requires that homeschooled students have an annual evaluation. Grades 3-10 may participate in the public school testing as an end-ofyear evaluation. This does not include FCAT reading or math retakes. Parents of home-schooled students: Please contact the guidance counselor at the school your student is zoned to attend for a schedule. Please notify the school of any accommodations that your child will need. Failure to notify may result in a student not being tested. Spring into healthy homes BY SAMARA DEARY Family & Consumer Science Agent As we adjust to warmer weather, the moment will arrive when we pack away the heavy comforters and sweaters and break out the shorts and flipflops because spring is here! Just as we prepare for the warm sunny days to return, there are tips to prepare our homes for spring and summer. If you are like me, you like to open your windows on a sunny day to take advantage of the fresh air. During the winter our windows stay closed in order to keep in the heat. Did you know that your health starts from inside your home? Here are some simple tips to follow in order to make the most of the seasonal change. Household chemicals: How often have you read the instructions on household cleaning supplies? If you have ever been at home cleaning and began to feel dizzy, got a headache or felt nauseous, chances are those chemicals are being used in the wrong proportions. Be sure to read the product label for proper use and risk factors. If you do not like the smell of harsh chemicals, vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are great alternatives. Avoid mold: Mold can exist anywhere theres moisture, especially in the bathroom and kitchen. Make sure to keep these areas clean, dry and well ventilated at all times. Mold can also exist in the toilet, closets, bed sheets, upholstery and curtains. Proper ventilation will help eliminate moisture and control mold. Changing your filters: Do you know there are benefits to changing your air conditioner filter? Changing your filter every 30 days (or per manufacturers recommendations) will increase air conditioner efficiency, extend the life of the unit, and your home will have cleaner air. All filters are not created equal. When purchasing filters look for the MERV rating, it is used to scale the efficiency of a filter. The scale goes from 1-16. The higher the rating the more particles the filter captures. These particles range from pollen, dust mites, cockroach debris to animal dander, bacteria and viruses. The more particles caught the cleaner the air in your home. Cigarette smoke: Secondhand cigarette smoke can still cause wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, sinus problems and even cause asthma attacks or make allergies worse. Even if you smoke outside the home, smoke particles such as tar and ammonia still attach to clothing, skin and hair. These travel inside the home and can affect others as well as the air quality in the home. If this is a concern for you the best measure is to take steps to quit smoking. Its healthier for your body as well as your home. As we prepare our homes for the changing season, keep these tips in mind to make sure that your home is a healthy home. Look for future programs offered at the Bradford County Extension Office on ways to create healthy energy efficient homes. Samara Deary Detour scheduled in Waldo The westbound section of State Road 24 (Kennard Street) in Waldo just west of U.S. 301 is scheduled to close for several days during daytime hours in the next two weeks to replace the concrete pavement.

Thursday, April 10, 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. Should I mulch my trees? Gary Hardesty, Starke Mulch is beneficial for establishing trees, but can be harmful if not done correctly. It is very important to suppress growth of weeds and turf grasses around a trees root zone after plantingthis allows the roots to freely penetrate the soil. You can do that by mulching the soil around the rootball or by applying herbicides. University of Florida research has found that mulch provides no more benefit than bare ground. However, organic mulches can have the advantage of adding needed nutrient matter to the soil. Pull mulch away from the trunk and the rootball. The point where the topmost root meets the trunk should be no more than two inches below the surface of the soil its fine if the root is visible at the surface. Mulch should be spread in a thinner layer on the rootball than around its perimeter. Check the root collar periodically and remove any large roots that grow up and into the mulch over the root ball, girdling the tree and killing it. Too much mulch on newly planted trees can cause roots to dry, also leading to stress and tree death. It can hide decay and dead spots on the lower trunk and major roots of established trees as well. For best results, apply a 3-inch thick layer of mulch around the plant. Maintain the area during the establishment period at least two feet in diameter (preferably three feet) for each inch of tree trunk diameter. You can apply a thinner layer of mulch over the rootball for aesthetic reasons if you like, but keep it at least 12 inches from the trunk so the trunk bark can dry. This also allows rainwater, irrigation and air to easily enter the root ball since it does not have to drain through the mulch. In addition to holding water meant for the roots, mulch resting on the trunk can kill the plant by oxygen starvation, death of bark, stem and root diseases and/or prevention of hardening off for winter. Composted yard waste makes excellent mulch and may prevent some plant diseases. Mulches from coniferous plants (like pine straw) are best for conifers, while hardwood mulch is better for hardwood trees. Interestingly, soil around citrus trees should be completely free of weeds, grass or mulch during the winter. These substances act as insulators, preventing solar heat from entering the soil during the day and radiating at night. You will find a wealth of information about this topic at http://bit.ly/PUozxm.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, April 10, 2014 month license, enough time to see if legislators would act to close those loopholes. Last Thursday, the state struck Internet cafs in five counties, seizing equipment and making some arrests. Many of the establishments were tied to a couple of different owners and authorities believe the search warrants obtained for those businesses will lead to further arrests for crimes like money laundering and racketeering. Smith gave Curles the opportunity to cease operations before further law enforcement action was necessary. The sheriff said Curles could have been sold a bill of goods, told that the equipment he was purchasing was acceptable under the law when in reality it was not. Smith said there was no resistance to the cease and desist order, and Curles did what he said he would do all along. In December, Curles told the city commission, If Im going to break the law and be arrested, Im not going to do it. I assured the police that someday if either the sheriff or chief of police finds any part of my operation not compliant with Florida law, Ill shut the doors. There are bills being considered that would allow Internet cafs under strict regulation.

Lives change at your library Celebrate National Library Week, April 13-19 This week, your public library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues. Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, programs for children and adults, and books to read, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond. Your public library has print materials for all ages, books on CD, DVDs and e-books to lend, and programs for children and adults. Service to the community has always been the focus of the library. While this aspect has never changed, libraries have grown and evolved in how they provide for the needs of every member of their community. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April. For more information, visit your library or see the librarys Web site at www.newriver.lib. fl.us. LIBRARY Continued from 5A Lakewood cleans up The rural community of Lakewood, located west of Starke on S.R. 100, has been a Firewise Community for 11 years. In 2003, Lakewood residents were concerned about a muck fire near their homes and wanted to take steps to reduce their wildfire risk. Landowners Arch Thomas and the late Bill Allen were catalysts for the program and instrumental in obtaining national recognition for the communitys efforts. Residents have created and implemented a Firewise plan, held regular Firewise board meetings and conducted 11 annual cleanup days. All of these efforts have greatly reduced the wildfire risk in this community, said Brian Johns, director of emergency management in Bradford County. On Saturday, March 29, 38 Lakewood residents and volunteers met at the Lakewood community lot for a safety briefing, and were divided into chainsaw, brush mowing and limb dragging crews. A Forest Service grant provided Silver Wings Tree Service out of Lawtey to prune tree limbs overhanging houses and remove some hazardous trees. Workers drug logs and limbs to the street. At noon, all of the volunteers enjoyed a community lunch and received Lakewood Firewise camp cups in appreciation of their work. Volunteers and Florida Forest Service firefighters dedicated 255 hours of sweat equity to the cleanup day. Throughout the year, residents had worked an additional 661 hours to benefit the Lakewood Community Firewise program. Johns said, Lakewood was honored to have seven volunteers from Florida Baptist Disaster Relief out to help with the days activities. Thirteen properties were impacted. The city of Starke came out and hauled off numerous logs and limbs. We are grateful to the National Fire Protection Association Firewise Program and the Florida Forest Service and New River Fire Station for providing Lakewood with the resources and information needed to help the residents help themselves to reduce their wildfire risk, said Johns.

Attract birds If you want to attract more birds and butterflies to your yard, native plants can provide the food and shelter they need. Natives can be as attractive as nursery-grown hybrids and because they are right for this soil and climate, they are easier to grow. On Thursday, April 17, Judy Jull, a former horticulture teacher, will speak on Basic Landscaping with Native Plants at the monthly meeting of the Alligator Creek Garden Club. The club meets at 6:30 p.m. at the Bradford County Extension Office on U.S. 301 in front of the fairgrounds. Refreshments will be served.

Clay Electric surveys members Members of Clay Electric may be contacted by a telephone survey company beginning the evening of Monday, April 14, as part of the cooperatives efforts to evaluate its services and communications. The telephone survey is scheduled to last five to seven days. We believe its important to know what our members think about our programs and services, said Communications Manager Wayne Mattox. If you receive a phone call from a survey company, FGI Research, we encourage you to participate. This years phone survey is similar to the one performed for the cooperative last April by FGI Research, a large market research firm based in Chapel Hill, N.C. Conducting a phone survey helps the co-op learn more about the opinions of members less inclined to respond to written surveys. The company will identify itself as conducting a phone survey on behalf of Clay Electric, and we encourage your cooperation, Mattox said. According to FGI Research, the phone survey takes about 7 to 12 minutes. The calls will primarily be made on weeknights from 5:30 to 8:45 p.m. All telephone interviews will be conducted by FGI Research Inc. Professional telephone interviewers will identify themselves as calling on behalf of Clay Electric Cooperative. All telephone interviews will originate from Virginia Beach, Va. Participants can request that someone from Clay Electric contact them regarding a specific issue or concern. If you should have a question about the co-ops survey efforts, please call the member and public relations department in Keystone Heights at 352-4738000 ext. 8265.

individual, you have to do whatever it takes to please that person, Triest said. You can find yourself in situations where a person thinks they know what they want, not knowing if its practical or even possible. Then there is always the question of whether or not you will get paid. With government work you deal with boards or committees. These are people used to discussion and compromise; they know when to defer to someone with more specialized knowledge about a project. Plus, you know the money will be there in the end with no problem. Fifteen years after starting Triest Construction, Triest was finally required by the state to get a contractors license. He was the 624th contractor in the state to take the test and he was not pleased with the result. I had to go to Orlando for the test, Triest said. I was told that no calculators would be allowed so I didnt take one. I got there and everyone else had one and and soon had a thriving business. He concentrated on commercial and, most especially, institution construction, building schools, law-enforcement buildings, hospitals, government buildings, churches and businesses. He said he only built a few houses and made additions to a few more. He preferred commercial work and, most especially, government contracts county, state and federal. When you work for an BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor There was a time, not so very long ago, that a man learned his trade from his father and was judged on what he could do, not by how many licenses and certificates he had hanging on his wall. Local contractor Ernest Triest is one of these men. Born and raised in Bradford County, he learned carpentry from his father and then more advanced construction skills hands-on when he returned home from military service. Triest was born on a family farm in the Theressa area nearly 90 years ago. Besides general farm work, he worked with his father on carpentry jobs not only on the farm, but for other people as well. At age 19, he left midterm in his senior year at Bradford High School to join the Army and serve his country in the second World War. I wanted to volunteer instead of being drafted so I could pick the branch of service I wanted to serve in, Triest said. I had real bad motion sickness and didnt want to get stuck in and airplane or worse, out on the water. Triest served as a communications specialist in the 724th Field Artillery Battalion, headquartered in Shelby, Miss., where he trained for 19 months and lost much of the hearing in one ear due to close proximity to a firing Howitzer during training. After traveling to England by ship from Camp Kilmer, N.J., he spent two months just outside of London, waiting for D-Day. Soon after, his battalion began the march to Berlin, with Triest setting up phone lines along the way. After the war, Triest remained in Germany for a year as part of the occupational troops. He remembers boating on the Rhine River with his buddies on weekends and how cold the water was when they turned the boat over. He said he liked Europe and there are a number of places he would like to return to and see again. Upon returning home after four years of service, Triest completed his senior year of high school and graduated in the same year as his future wife, then Carlie Mae Hall, captain of the BHS womens basketball team. After graduation, Triest went to work for contactors Merritt, Chapman and Scott, out of New York, building the piers for the Mothball Fleet at Green Cove Springs. A number of piers were constructed to serve military ships no longer needed after the war. I worked as a carpenter on the first pier, Triest remembers, and by the time it was complete I had been made pier superintendent. By the time I started working on another one I decided I was interested in going into the construction business for myself. At the time, there was no formal training or certification requirement to become a contractor, so he started Triest Construction in 1949, working at first out of home offices and later out of offices he built on SR 21, where he remained until his retirement on Dec. 31, 1986.

Several vendors have strawberry goodies. Berrylicious, for example, offers strawberry milkshakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries and a chocolate brownie covered with vanilla ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream.

BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor According to a My Florida website of notable figures, Richard Keith Call came to Florida in 1814 as an aide de camp to Andrew Jackson. Call made Florida his home and served on the legislative council. He was a delegate to Congress and was the third and fifth territorial governor. He led the Florida militia in fighting the Seminoles during his first term, which overlapped with the Second Seminole War (1835-1842). During his second administration, he moved the territory closer to statehood. Call died at his estatethe Grove, near Tallahasseein September 1862. Call is likely to have visited the Bradford/Union area at some point, since a great deal of Native American unrest during the Seminole Wars was centered in what became those two counties. There was a Fort Call in what is now Union County, and even today, a Fort Call Cemetery remains. Starkes entire downtown area was designated as the Historic Call Street District in 1985. The historic area is bounded by Jefferson, Cherry and Madison streets, and Temple Boulevard. Within the 120-acre area are 23 buildings and one structure according to the registry. Architect and architecture historian Ron Haase, a Melrose resident, said recently that the architectural terms American Mercantile and American Commercial Style are rather vague. Buildings in those categories may use elements of many styles, but Haase thought most buildings in Starkes business district might fall into the broadest interpretations of the terms. There are subsets of the commercial style: Western Mercantile buildings are usually those wooden feed stores and dance halls you see in dusty, western movies. Starke architect Spyros Drivas cited two influences on Starkes cityscape, the first of which he called Cracker Vernacular. This is not a pejorative term, but rather a term noting that most buildings from the 1800s were designed by a buildings owner and his or her contractors, with input from Floridas early carpenters and brick masons who built them. Sometimes the buildings were designed on the fly as they were being built. Officially, the term American Mercantile refers to multi-story commercial structures built in Chicago around the turn of the 20th century. It was a post-Civil War movement that influenced the design of commercial buildings in cities nationwide, including Starke, Drivas said. There might be a little Victorian influence here, a little Classical Greek or Roman there, even some early Frank Lloyd Wright prairie architecture tucked into the Chicago Schools American Commercial Style. The Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission said, While the purest description of Commercial style buildings most fits early skyscrapers, many much shorter buildings are sometimes described as Commercial style. These one-to four-story brick buildings date from the same era, were designed for commercial use, have large pane windows on the ground floor and flat roofs, often with decorative parapets The subtype of the style is a more vernacular version that is more prevalent in Pennsylvania than the true high-style Commercial style skyscrapers. That description is also true of buildings on Call Street in Starke. Photographic evidence shows early buildings along Call Street were built of wood, like in western movie towns. A prime example was the Starke House Hotel, which was built around 1895 and survived until the 1940s. However, early photographs and insurance maps of Starke indicate that brick was also used in some of Starkes earliest buildings. There are a number of reasons for Starkes gradual transformation from wood to brickand occasionally stone during the late 19th century: the first was the arrival of railroads, which could deliver heavier building materials near or into the downtown area and in large quantities. The railroad didnt so much arrive in Starke; its more accurate to say that the Yulee railroad came to the piney woods, and Starke grew up around it. A major reason for the transition from wood to brick was the great Chicago fire of 1871, which left that vast, largely wooden city burned almost to the ground. Starke, too, had a fire that burned two blocks of the city in 1895. The great Jacksonville fire in 1901 may also have prompted Starkes city fathers to discourage wooden structures in the downtown commercial district. Insurance companies and city ordinances combined to push for sturdier, more fireretardant structures. Its not that the Chicago fire influenced Starke alone; it changed urban commercial architecture all over the United States. Haase suggested that the move from wood to stone and brick structures was also due to a growing trend toward bigcity-style window shopping, especially in ladies commercial districts. This called for streetlevel windows and larger cutouts in outer walls. Stronger I-beams and posts became necessary to support walls with less footage holding them up at street level. Whatever style Starkes early commercial buildings incorporated on Call Street, they had common characteristics. For one, wooden and one or two brick buildings in Starke had tall facades with shorter buildings behind them. This is actually a holdover from the Italianate Gothic style, Haase said. From the street at least, tall facades made the buildings look bigger and grander than they actually were. This idea came to America with immigrants and wealthy commercial classes taking grand, European tours. There are two such brick buildings in Starke that illustrate this style: a gray, empty building across from the Bradford County Telegraph and Starkes Masonic Lodge on Orange Street. During the transition from wood, where did all those bricks come from? Probably from Starke. An early advertisement in an 1883 East Florida Telegraph is headlined, Bricks! Bricks! The rest of the ad is unreadable in todays available sources. The vendor was apparently Mac Williams and Brown in Starke. Former Bradford resident Mrs. Jay S. Brown remembered that when her familythe L.C. Hull familyarrived in Starke in 1878, her father started their homestead from scratch, clearing land, sawing timber and making bricks. Her older brother located clay on a parcel of land he purchased near a local creek; the Hull family built a kiln and made brick molds. At first, they turned out enough bricks to build their fireplace and a kitchen flue. L.C. Hull, general store owner and brick maker, was advertising his bricks in the East Florida Courier by March 1888. By 1890, Hull and his son Newt had bricks for sale and advertised them in local newspapers. Bricks available at the depot or kiln, the ads read. Decorative wooden corbels European scrollwork gimcracks that support or appear to support windows or ledgeswere found On Call: notes on Starkes historic architecture Call Street was named after Richard Keith Call, Indian of territorial Florida. on many of Starkes wooden buildings, but the style didnt transfer to brick structures, although cement versions of the filigree existed. However, while classical corbels arent found, decorative corbelled brickwork parapets are an almost universal feature on many of Starkes historic structures. Call Street visitors may also notice a penchant for taking an existing building and wrapping it in plaster or stucco. This may have been an unreliable attempt at fire retardation. Early photos of the Hemingway Building at the northeast corner of Call and Walnut show it as wooden clapboard. By now, it has long since been plastered over. While the Dover Building at Thompson and Call is entirely brick, it also got a new plaster skin in the 1940s. Stucco was This 1800s photo shows the Call Street block between Walnut (at left of photo) and a portion of what came to be called the brick Dover Building at the corner of Call and Thompson streets.

Riding club: Thanks for support in raising $5,000 Dear Editor: Im unhappy to learn that 40 cents of every one of our 2013 federal tax dollars went to fund current and past wars, according to the Quaker advocacy group the Friends Committee on National Legislation. We have some critical needs as a country -how to respond to the effects of climate change, how to repair our crumbling bridges and roadways, how to bridge the growing divide between rich and poor. I would like to see more of our tax dollars going to these priorities rather than to the profit driven military contractors and pentagon. What do we as a Christian country not get about Thou Shalt Not Kill. If we spend as much tax money on helping and healing, as is spent on killing, torturing, and crippling physically and mentally, the More tax dollars should go to helping and healing Dear Editor: Im not sure why Mr. Busby directed his letter (Time For A Change) to me. However, since he did I will reply. Ive not seen or heard of any complaints about the response time or service from the UC Sheriffs office. While Im sure there have been some, theyve certainly not made the front page. Mr. Busby wants change. There has been change. John H. Whitehead and Jerry Whitehead are no longer the sheriff of Union County. Brad Whitehead is now serving out the remainder of his late fathers term. There will be an election in November and the voters of Union County will decide who will continue to serve as sheriff. I support Brad Whitehead. I truly support Mr. Busbys right to his opinion and freedom of speech. However, I will continue to condemn those who spout out useless and unproven facts, ie. (Good Ole Boy System, and Family Business) to describe the Union County Sheriffs Office. The real facts are the voters of Union County elect our sheriff at the ballot box. Have in the past and will continue in the future. To describe our electoral system in this manner is totally asinine. Get involved, work for and support the candidate of your choice. But lets be civil while doing so. Thank You Jack Sapp Response to Time for a change world would not only be a much better place, the USA would not be in such a dangerous position, due to the terror we have inflicted on the rest of the world, since 911. I hope that my senators, Rubio and Nelson, will work to make this happen in the coming year. They can start by eliminating the more than $100 billion war profiteering of military contractors. If we die trying to help and heal and try to bring peace in peaceful ways, we will gain everlasting life. The way we are going now, not only insures torture, destruction and death, on our enemies, but also for ourselves. Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself for the love of God. He also said Love Thy Enemy. By doing this according to His Word, we will be saving our own lives here on earth, as well as for eternity. Sincerely, Marie Fitzsimmons Dear Editor: I love my job. Teaching children in Bradford County has been rewarding for me in too many ways to count. I thank God for it often. Last year the governor of Florida said he was giving each county $2500 for each teacher a raise. Sounded good to me. After about five or six years of literally no raise and even a cut with the 3% taken for retirement and increased insurance payment my monthly salary went down about $200 a month. So you can see how good the governors deal was to me and many other teachers in this county. Well, I saw county after county getting their money and for many that exact amount. These are counties that pay more to begin with. I see the proposal now is we get $1400 of that amount. That math says we get about 56% of what the state intended. Seems sort of insulting after going half a decade with nothing and then seeing the intended money disappear like that. To go one step further. Teachers at the beginning of their careers get a much higher raise percentage wise than some in this configuration. A first year teacher essentially gets a 4% raise while those of us at the other end (twenty eight I believe) get a 2.5% raise. Honestly, I did not go into teaching for the money. I figured if you go to college to get the degree that allows me to work with kids the compensation would be enough. I have discovered State teacher raise not what was expected that teachers with a masters degree in education are lower paid than most professionals with a BS degree. I have learned to live with that. I love my job. But when big brother (the state) finally says here is the money, I have to be a little disappointed when a little over 50% makes it to us. I do appreciate all the work that went into negotiating these raises but I thought it was pretty much cut and dried with that money allocated for us.

As a rule of thumb, gabled buildingswooden or brick were an earlier style than flatroofed buildings, the 1902 courthouse being one of several exceptions. Gabled roofs made more sense in snow-bound climes up north, but less so in Florida. The slippery slopes of pitched roofs were more expensive and more difficult and expensive to maintain. However, flat roofs required good drainage and conscientious care and maintenance. Comparing 1800s photos with Call Street buildings today reveals buildings that changed from gabled to flat roofsand vice versaover the century. The buildings in the Historic Call Street District were restored or renovated during a downtown revitalization program carried out with a $500,000 grant around 1986. A Community Redevelopment Plan for the historic area was put into place in 2007. During those renovations, many buildings were tied together with a false faade, stucco, paint job or an awning to make two or more buildings appear to be a unit, though they didnt start out that way. In some cases, urn-shaped decorations and filigree atop building parapets were removed, presumably for safetys sake, a level skyline or changing tastes.

I had two men working for me as estimators; one was a University of Florida graduate in building construction and the other held the same degree from Auburn. I caught them in the office and told them that at least one of the three of us was going to have to pass that test. We had school in the office in the evenings after work, Triest said. We went to Tampa for the next exam, carrying calculators, briefcases and everything else we could think of and all three of us passed that time. Triest scored high and kept his license through the rest of the life of his business and for about 15 years after his retirement, finally allowing his certification to go to the inactive list for about eight years before finally letting it go when he discovered how time consuming it would be to get it reinstated. Triest married Carlie Mae, literally the girl-next-door, in 1950. Her family had the farm right next to his, but she says she has no memory of him until he returned home from the war. While staying home as a homemaker and mother, she quickly learned that she would be affected by the business as well. Ernest would get up, sometimes very early, and leave the house no later than 6 a.m., Carlie Mae said. He would be gone all day and never got home before 6 p.m. This went on for many years, sometimes seven days a week. Although she had little direct contact with the business, she found that she sometimes had to provide support services of a sort. Triest worked on a large number of projects, as many as 28 at a time. Not only did he have to oversee all of this, he was constantly seeking more work, making bids and attending meetings. Sometimes he said he felt he needed to be several places at a time. Since this was not possible, he did the next best thing: He drove fast and encouraged others to do the same on his behalf.

I saw a Florida Highway Patrol officer with several cars pulled over to the side and he motioned for me to join the line to get my speeding ticket. I took my ticket and went on my way. The very next day I got up at 4 a.m. and headed for Madison. I had it rolling pretty good when I got stopped again for speeding. It was the same FHP officer who, when he looked at my license, asked me if he hadnt written me a ticket just the day before. Another time, Triest needed to get to a bid opening, for which he was unprepared, in Gainesville. He talked his brother-in-law into driving him so he could ride and finish up the work on the bid. We were running really short on time, so I told him to do whatever it took to get me there and that I would come get him out of jail if necessary, Triest remembered. We got on Main Street in Gainesville at 23rd Street with a city policeman right behind us. I kept telling my brother-inlaw not to stop, just keep going, so we ran on down the road, maybe 15 or 20 mph over the speed limit. We pulled up outside the bank, where the bid opening was, with several cars with lights and sirens going pulling in right behind us. I grabbed my briefcase and ran inside, getting there with only about 30 seconds to spare. When I came back out the police had my brother-in-law in custody and he had explained what was going on. The officer told me that it was a good thing that I was running into the bank with the briefcase rather than out because then he would have shot me. As it was, I had to pay for a ticket and a fine. Eventually Triest had his drivers license suspended for speeding, so Carlie Mae had to add chauffeur services to her list of wifely duties. She would drive me during daylight, business hours, Triest said, but when it was really early in the morning or after dark I still pretty much drove myself. Triest worked on hundreds of construction projects over the years, working in 15 Florida counties and sometimes employing as many as 150 people at one time. He completed 69 projects just in Bradford County, including the first county health department building ($34,000 to build and three times that to renovate 40 years later), the first courthouse on US 301 (torn down to make room for the one now in use), the first six buildings of Southside Elementary School, the first two phases of Bradford High School, a wing at Shands Starke (which was torn down to make room for a new addition about 10 years ago) and two banks, including Community State. After his retirement from Triest Construction he still stayed busy. He went to work for Bradford County and the Bradford County School Board as a consultant and project manager. He worked on the controversial project at the new Starke Elementary, where problems with the contractor, G.H. Johnson plagued the project with substandard work and costly delays. He then went on to a project at Bradford Middle School, then the county safety complex. He was made county construction specialist for the courthouse addition project, which he said was another difficult one. I was originally hired by the county for eight months for the courthouse additions, Triest said. The project ended up running about two years over the time limit, causing the total project to take three years to complete. Once again, most of the issues were with the contractor. Triest is still keeping busy, despite the fact he will turn 90 in May. Most recently, he served as project manager for the construction of Orange Heights Baptist Church, where his sonin-law is pastor. He will soon be playing that role again when the church breaks ground on a family life education center. Besides enjoying time with his bride of 64 years and his brood of two children (having lost a son to leukemia many years before), three grandchildren and five greatgrandchildren, Triest also likes to fill his days with honeydos, gardening and eating what he grows. He also likes to cook, and both he and his wife love to fish in both freshand salt-water. Although never a hunter, he is still a good shot, and last year shot a couple of squirrels so his great-grandkids could see what they tasted like. They really werent too sure about it, Triest said, but once they tasted them, it was all over; they loved it. Asked for a philosophy of life, Triest simply said, I like to stay busy, to try new things and, most of all, I love a challenge. The District 5-4A and District 7-1A softball tournaments will begin Monday, April 14, with Keystone Heights High School playing on the first day of its tournament and Bradford and Union County not beginning play until Tuesday, April 15.

Union, regardless of its seeding, will play on April 15 at 5 p.m. Top seed Dixie County will play the April 14 winner at 7 p.m. The championship game is scheduled for 7 p.m. on April 17. Tornadoes go 0-4 in talented Kissimmee tournament. The Tornadoes opened with a 3-0 loss to defending Class 7A champion St. Thomas Aquinas, a team that returned five all-state players from last season. One of those players is pitcher Meghan King, who held Bradford to two hits. Bradford pitcher Ashton Adkins struck out nine and gave up just one run through the first five innings, but the Raiders added two runs in the sixth off of three hits and a wild pitch. Defending Class 2A champion Canterbury was Bradfords next opponent. The Crusaders returned the bulk of their state champion team, which consisted of six eighth-graders, two freshmen and two sophomores, but the two teams were locked in a 1-all tie until Canterbury took advantage of two errors and a single to score the winning run in the seventh, handing the Tornadoes a 2-1 defeat. Mackenzie Gault and Taylor Cruce went 2-for-3 and 2-for4, respectively, for Bradford. A single by Cruce in the third inning scored Jaci Atkinson, who reached on a bunt single with one out. Adkins allowed one earned run on seven hits and no walks. She had four strikeouts. Bradfords next opponent did not win a state title last year, but Class 7A Niceville lost just two games last season and returned seven starters, including two all-state pitchers.

Hummingbirds will return from South America, and black bears will become more active following winter. The weather disruptions from two weeks ago have mellowed into a typical spring season. The local bass tournaments indicate as much. The overall weights at the tournaments have resumed the levels that reflect the spring bass spawn. The representation of the large female bass in the tournament catches will soon diminish, and the secret to finding the big ladies will become water depth and cover. Acknowledging the obvious spring weather, the specks that prefer cooler water are moving to the deeper depths, and the bluegills are moving to the shoreline cover.

Local lake levels One of the greatest natural resources in Bradford, Clay and Union counties are the numerous lakes that dot our landscapes. It follows that the plentiful rain this area has experienced over the last summer and winter has been a great benefit to the levels in those bodies of water. What has been a godsend, however, to all of our lakes during the last year could possibly have a divided impact to different areas in the future. The accompanying photograph of the Hampton Lake home of Jimmy and Lisa Prevatt shows the water level to be 3 to 4 feet below the bottom of their lakefront door. Excessively heavy rains in a short period of time could have an adverse impact on Hampton Lake, Sampson Lake and downtown Lake Butler residents. Conversely, the accompanying photograph of the Lake Brooklyn bowl that must be full before water will flow from it to Lake Geneva is totally dry. That is not to say that the Keystone Lake levels have not made significant improvement over the last year, because they have. The accompanying photograph of water under the Highway 21 bridge over Brooklyn Lake shows a small stream of water rushing from the northern portion of the lake. The accompanying current photograph of the bridge indicates that the water level has risen to the point that it now stretches across the entire lower runway. However, what is good for one community does not necessarily have to be bad for the other. Hopefully, if the wetter trend continues, the continued rainfall will not come in the form of a deluge or a fall hurricane, but will be spread out like it has been over the last year. Regardless of the human impact, the additional rainfall See FINS, 7B This photograph of the Highway 21 bridge over Lake Brooklyn improvement over last summer.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Union County High School seniors Austin Dukes and Geordyn Green have dreamed of playing big-time football since they were kids playing together in the yard, Dukes making believe he was Brian Urlacher and Green pretending he was Deion Sanders. They hope Atlanta Sports Academy will get them closer to that dream, signing letters of intent to play there during a March 26 ceremony in the UCHS Thursday, April 10, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 11B included wins over Bradford (2), Clay, Interlachen and Oakleaf. Team members Jazzy Budny, Kathy Nguyen, Hannah Fox, Crystal Alonzo and Jessica Grimaldo then led the Indians to a second-place tie with Ridgeview in the District 4-2A tournament. Pictured (l-r) are coach Pam Wells, Peyton Collins, Kathy Nguyen, Johanna Hires, Jazzy Budny, Hannah Fox, Jessica Grimaldo, Anna Fields, Crystal Alonzo, Jolene Miller, Brittany Smith, Chloe Harris and coach Betsy Sullivan. Unions Dukes, Green to play at Atlanta Sports Academey media center. The players said they had offers from Division II schools, but they believe a year at Atlanta Sports Academy can put them in the position to play at a bigger school. We had smaller, D-II offers, Green said, but we knew we had the ability to do more than D-II, so were going to go there, take this opportunity and advance on it. Dukes said, Im extremely excited about this opportunity. I really am. Though Atlanta Sports Academy can be viewed as a prep school, Union head coach Ronny Pruitt said his players decisions to go there were no way based on a need to improve academic performance. Dukes and Green both couldve been accepted to larger schools because of their grades and become walk-ons, Pruitt said. This opportunity is all about improving as athletes and hopefully earning athletic scholarships to larger schools. I think its going to help them and give them a little more time to develop physically and, hopefully, open a door at the next level to what theyre looking for, Pruitt said. Dukes said, I know Im not developed fully. I know this extra year will be really good. Its basically like a redshirt year at a major college. Green said the decision to turn down offers from smaller schools wasnt easy, but in the end, the path he and Dukes have chosen seems to be the best for what they want to accomplish. You think about playing time and all the opportunities youd have at D-II, Green said, but after weighing the goods and bads of each, it kind of made the decision a lot easier to swallow. Dukes has played on the offensive line, but linebacker is where he has made his mark, earning first-team all-state honors this past season. Pruitt said Dukes play at middle linebacker was the key to the overall defenses success and allowed the team to take chances on the outside with its defensive ends. We cant do a lot of that stuff without knowing that were going to be secure up in the middle, Pruitt said. Austin allowed us the opportunity to gamble and do things that otherwise might be unsound, but we had athletes out there who could make it happen. We knew that he could plug the middle. Pruitt said Dukes also brought emotion to a defense that really featured quite a lot of quiet kids. One of those players who didnt seem to show a lot of outside emotion was Green, who earned second-team all-state honors at defensive back. Greens play on the field, though, makes quite a statement. Whatever position he gets put in hell make some noise at, Pruitt said. Green also made plays happen on the offensive side of the ball, lining up at running back and wide receiver. Pruitt believes offense is where Green will have his biggest impact at the next level. The coach described plays where it seemed Green was going backward or about to be tackled, only to realize a few seconds later he was sprinting downfield. Hes one of the more dynamic players when he gets the ball in his hands, Pruitt said. Green said he can envision himself as a slot receiver or scat back at the next level, which he said would be a lot of fun. However, it doesnt matter where a team decides to play him. The opportunity is all he asks for. Its all about getting the chance, Green said. It doesnt matter what side of the ball you put me on. Im going to compete to highest of my potential. When the players were asked what their dream school would See SIGN, 12B Linebacker Austin Dukes signs his letter of intent as his father, Bruce, looks on. Photo by Lola Lacy.

Pitcher Holly Tucker threw a complete game (five innings), be, they both replied, Florida, with Dukes adding that playing at any SEC school, really, would be a dream come true. Its a dream that began early in life. I remember back in Pop Warner days, (Green) used to come over to my house, Dukes said. We used to always dream about playing somewhere big Im talking big time. Perhaps Atlanta Sports Academy will make that dream a reality. At the very least, it gives Dukes and Green at least one more team to play together on. 12B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 10, 2014 SCHOONER NETTLESSMOKED SAUSAGE16-OZIDAHOPOTATOES10 LB BAGFRESH MANGOES$5992 $7$2792 lb PRICES AVAILABLE09 |10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 wed thurs fri sat sun mon tues Open 7 Days a Week 8am to 8pm1371 South Walnut St. (Hwy 301) Starke (904)368-9188 Amazing quality.
