CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Former Hampton Mayor Barry Moore was convicted on two drug-related counts late Tuesday night. After a daylong trial, the jury deliberated less than two hours, according to Bradford County Sheriffs Office Capt. Brad Smith. Moore was found guilty of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and dealing in a controlled substance. According to an investigation that led to his arrest last November, Moore was dealing in Oxycodone. Foreshadowing the scandal that embroiled the city of Hampton when the results of a state audit were made public in January, Moores arrest made headlines, and even drew comparison to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, another public figure notorious for drug abuse and outrageous behavior. Moore, however, had only been mayor for a few months, and his problems were completely separate from Hamptons, except that his attainment of office was perhaps another example of the lack of vigilance that got the town into trouble. His past included arrests for driving with a suspended license, violating probation and battery. Moore was suspended when he was arrested and has since resigned from office, apologizing for any embarrassment he caused the city. Moore has been in jail since his arrest and that will continue until his sentencing, which is scheduled for June 10. Judge Robert Groeb said Moore should be held given previous failures to appear for court. Not so fast!County challenging Starke annexationBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Bradford County wants the city of Starke to relinquish a portion of U.S. 301 annexed in 2006 and has consulted the Florida attorney general for a ruling on the matter. It is also challenging the recent annexation of the property where the new Badcock Furniture story will be built. Sheriff Gordon Smith and his staff appeared before the county commission April 17 to explain the dilemma posed by the Starkes highway annexations. If we dont fix it now, its only going to create a further problem. Its an issue of right or wrong to me, Smith said. Sgt. Ray Shuford, director of communications and emergency 911 for the sheriffs office, highlighted some of the problems discovered when they were researching the current and past annexations on 301 south of the city. In 2005, Starke annexed the Walmart Supercenter. It was contiguous with the citys sprayfield, and the annexation kept the retailer in the city limits in exchange for the extension of city water and wastewater. It is not being challenged. In 2006, the city commission annexed the traffic signal at Walmart for traffic control purposes, but it did so by annexing the U.S. 301 corridor south of the existing city limits to Walmart. This is the first problematic annexation, according to Shuford. In annexing the 301 corridor, Starke created three separate enclaves on the west side of the highway areas that were outside of the city limits but were bounded on all sides by property or right of way inside the city limits. Enclaves are unlawful, and the confusion they create is detrimental from the viewpoint of public safety, Shuford said. Countywide, addressing follows a national standard to get police, firefighters and paramedics where they are needed. The whole idea behind this is that the addresses we create are supposed to help first responders get to people faster, Shuford said. If we create something thats going to slow any of that down or create any confusion, then we have eliminated the whole purpose INSIDE: Ready For The Relay BHS Softball Team Wins District Brooker teacher named top in district BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph Frances Jethro is Brooker Elementary Schools Teacher of the Year. She was also selected to represent the Bradford school district and will go forward to compete as Floridas Teacher of the Year. Jethro teaches first grade at Brooker Elementary and has been in the Bradford system for only three years. She and her family live in Gainesville. She taught one year at Southside Elementary School in Starke, and asked for a transfer to shorten her daily drive. Now, she gets to work and home again with no more than a pleasant, rural, 20-minute commute. It takes that long to get from one side of Gainesville to the other, she said last week. Frances and Jay, her husband of 32 years, have two boys, one 22 and another 16. She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but said she doesnt advertise that much in the South. She was raised in south Florida and went to college at Lee University in Tennessee. She did some graduate work at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Jethro has almost 25 years of teaching experience. She has taught in Tennessee and in Florida, in private Christian schools and in public schools. Inside school settings, she has taught kindergarten through middle school, and outside school settings she has also taught art and dance. Since there are only eight teachers at Brooker Elementary, it wasnt surprising that she had a shot at the schools Teacher of the Year title. But, she said, she wasnt prepared for the day Bradford School Superintendent Chad Farnsworth walked into her classroom to tell her she was the districts choice, too. I didnt know what to say, she said. I just stood there looking at him. I mean I knew what he was Kindergarteners at Southside Elementary Schoolincluding Willow Sampson, Sariah Beard and Leonta Pernellwere treated to an Easter egg hunt before the holiday.

According to a Clay County Sheriffs Office report, hours after deputies responded to a blaze at Nicks Quick Stop, a Chevron-branded convenience store at the corner of S.R. 21 and Lakeview Road, Detective Stacey E. Durham made contact with two suspects. The April 14 fire gutted the structure, which lies inside Clay County but is within 300 feet of Putnam and Bradford counties. Durham wrote that Mathew Ryan Cemer, 14, and Frederick James Martin, 18, met him two blocks from Nicks Quick Stop. Durham transported the two suspects to Cemers home in Putnam County, and asked Putnam deputies to obtain a search warrant for the house. Once inside the residence, investigators found $1,000 worth of cigarettes and tobacco products, a computer and other merchandise from the convenience store. They also discovered hundreds of items of stolen property associated with numerous burglaries. The Putnam County Sheriffs Office said detectives determined the stolen items are from more than 50 burglaries committed in Bradford, Clay, Alachua and Putnam Counties. Putnam deputies arrested Cemer and Martin for burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief. They also arrested Kenneth Baldinelli, 14, of Melrose for armed burglary, grand theft of a firearm and grand theft, and Adam Boyd, 14, of Melrose on the same charges. In addition, Putman deputies charged Cemers parents, Casey Marie Gaffney, 33, and Michael David Lavane, 38, both of Melrose with child neglect and dealing in stolen property. On April 22, Clay deputies served arrest warrants on Martin and Cemer, charging them with burglary, grand theft and arson for crimes committed at Nicks Quick Stop. Frederick Martin Michael Lavane County: Well take animal control and zoning BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County Commission is abandoning any fee for animal control services from the city of Starke. Starkes government wont be expected to supplement the countys animal control budget in any waypart of County Chairman Danny Riddicks plan to put the disagreements of the past to rest and work together more important matters, like economic development. Riddick told the county commission it would be the start of good things. In addition to accepting sole responsibility for animal control services, the county commission also wants Starke to turn its building and zoning services back over to the county. Riddick said they represented the entire county, so this was the right and proper thing to do. Its best for everybody, Riddick said. Giving up on the animal control fee was bitter pill for some to swallow. Commissioner Ross Chandler, however, said the county wasnt losing anything; it hasnt received any animal control fee from the city in years. To me its a nonissue, Chandler said. The only caveat was Sheriff Gordon Smiths request that the county only be obliged to follow its own animal control policies, not anything on the citys books. Commissioner Eddie Lewis asked if the county was going to have to come up with any more money to cover the cost of the department, and Smith said no. The city has been providing the shelter building and property and paying six months of utility bills a year at the animal control facility. That will no longer be necessary once the county moves into its new facility, which is being built behind the solid waste collection site off of S.R. 100. The county had also sought compensation from the city to help cover the cost of running the building and zoning office, at which point the city commission decided to reopen its own building and zoning office. Now the county is backing off that request with a new proposal to get all building and zoning responsibility back in its hands. The county office wouldnt just process zoning applications, issue permits and conduct building inspections. It would take over the entire process, including placing the city under the countys land development regulations and approving zoning changes and site plans for development in the city. There would be one zoning board/ board of adjustment operating under the county commission. Bradford County would collect and retain all building and zoning fees, although Starke would resume collecting its impact fees once its moratorium has ended. Starke would not have the authority to waive zoning or other fees, which was the original source of the countys complaint. This would definitely benefit the citizens, it would be better for Bradford County, and we have a great building and zoning operation, said Riddick, who also claimed support from the North Florida Regional Planning Council. With a city as small as Starke, he said it doesnt pay to have two separate offices, one part time, when the county has a full-time staff. County Commissioner Doyle Thomas said he didnt want it to look like the county was trying to take over and tell the city what to do. Lewis said unlike animal control, these are not all things Starke wants the county to do. But Riddick and Chandler made it clear, this was an offer, not an ultimatum. Also unlike animal control, which wont cost the county commission any more than it is now, the process of converting the city zoning map to county classifications would come with a price tag. If that is the case, the Chandler said, the county would have to consider whether its economically sound to spend thousands of dollars doing so. While Thomas said his support for the proposal would depend on the citys complete agreement, Lewis said his support was contingent upon the city not asking for any portion of the service fees collected. Riddick agreed: one office, one central authority. Like you said, Im not trying to force them to do anything. I just know that the city says theyre hurting for money, and this would be a way to help them with that, and it would also be a way to benefit the citizens of Bradford County, he said. The proposal was discussed by the county commission April 17. It remains to be seen whether the city commission will be receptive to the offer. Tax abatement on the ballot BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Should the county entice new development by offering tax abatement? Voters will decide this year, as county commissioners agreed April 17 to put the question on the ballot this fall. There wasnt much discussion about the move although it has been on, and slipped, the countys mind before. The commission was approached by business leaders in 2010 about establishing incentives for economic development. Property tax abatement was one idea, but it must be approved by voters. There was no time to get it on the ballot in 2010, so the soonest it could go before voters was 2012. By then, the request had been forgotten. Voters gave the commission the authority to abate taxes on new development back in the mid 1990s, but the that authority expires after 10 years. Per Florida Statute 196.1995, The board of county commissioners of any county or the governing authority of any municipality shall call a referendum within its total jurisdiction to determine whether its respective jurisdiction may grant economic development ad valorem tax exemptions. It may do so under two circumstances: either the governing board votes to put the question on the ballot or the public petitions to do so. As county attorney Will Sexton pointed out, the statute even spells out the language of the referendum. Shall the board of county commissioners of this county (or the governing authority of this municipality, or both) be authorized to grant, pursuant to s. 3, Art. VII of the State Constitution, property tax exemptions to new businesses See TAXES, 7A

Shuford pointed out how the properties along the west side of 301 in that area have alternating city and county addresses. How do you find 1750 S. Walnut when hes bounded on both sides by county addresses? he asked. The computer software used by the mapping department automatically rejects this lack of logic, and each time there is an update, staff must manually override it and reenter the Starke addresses. When that happens, the automatic assignment of responding agencies and stations to those addresses goes out the window, Shuford said. Sheriff Smith said the city is claiming Southwest 143rd Street as well, but all of the properties along the street have county addresses. If the county were to accept that is a city road, he would have to tell those residents their address is changing, and he doesnt want to do that. The annexation of the new Badcock property at Southeast 142nd Way, which the city commission approved April 1, is the latest complication. Because it is not contiguous to the city, nothing around it is assigned a city address. It will be an island to itself. The city believes the problem will eventually solve itself as more of that area is voluntarily annexed, but Commissioner Eddie Lewis said the residents north and south of the Badcock property dont want to be part of the city, so it will never be contiguous. The enclaves, the lack of compactness, the unlawfulness of annexing a highway corridor were all discussed, but Shuford further showed that the citys notice to the county and public advertisement of the annexations had been inadequate. The county also had a letter from Scott Koons, executive director of the North Florida Regional Planning Council, which noted the same troubles with the citys actions and denied that the planning council had advised the city that the Badcock annexation was appropriate under the circumstances. In addition to creating a public safety nightmare, the sheriff called the annexations illegal and wrong. One city commissioner asked me when I became an attorney, and I said I was smarter than that and I can read, Smith said. He said he doesnt have a problem with the city growing, but it needs to be done the right way. The city claims 301, like the Badcock property, was voluntarily annexed, Smith said. Who volunteered? he asked. The city undertook a voluntary annexation without a petition from a property owner. Smith said he was told the county never contested the annexation, but he said the county was never notified. You cant contest something that you werent aware of, he said. Shuford said they are now asking the city to contract its boundaries, relinquishing 301. The 301 annexation was not done, in our opinion legally or properly, and it needs to be undone, Shuford said. To that end, county attorney Will Sexton said the first step would be to see if Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi agrees with the countys assessment. Im not aware that there is another case out there where a city so blatantly did what the city of Starke did, Sexton said. If the attorney general finds no problem with the annexations, then that will be the end. But if the city hears from an authority like the attorney general that the annexations were illegal, it might be motivated to act on its own to contract its boundaries before the county has to force the issue, Sexton said. Smith said he doesnt know how things got to this point, and thought everything was resolved when they met with the city attorney and clerk about the Badcock annexation. He said he hopes the city and county dont end up in court. Any general citizen can read what the law says, and thats in total violation, he said. In addition to instructing staff to forward the case to the attorney general, the commission voted unanimously to officially contest the Badcock annexation as they were still within 30 days of its approval. annexations have created for the addressing system.ANNEXContinued from 1A there for; I knew who he was, but I felt like I had to apologize for being so speechless. Jethro said she would just as soon the title had gone to other teachers who had been in the system for years. Still, she was selected for the honor by her fellow teachers. Brooker Principal Debbie Parmenter explained why Jethro deserved to be named Teacher of the Year. In her letter of support, Parmenter wrote, Mrs. Jethro is the epitome of a career teacher. She creates an atmosphere of support both for and among her students. Teaching is as essential to Mrs. Jethro as breathing. No matter what the difficulty, she will find a way to endure and overcome. Most importantly, she will do what she knows is right for her students, no matter what. Parmenter gave two examples to explain why Jethro had earned the admiration of her peers. One was her classroom interpretation of Making Meaning, the districts new approach to teaching reading. Jethro said she had trouble with the program at first, but, understood why the approach was important. I try to grasp new ideas quickly but I dont do well until I make it my own and understand what the goal is, Jethro said. She worked with District Reading Coach Terry Shewmaker to implement the new system, adding her own creative activities and strategies. The new programs strength is that it tells kids how to do something; how to let them take ownership of their own learning, Parmenter said. She added that traditional teaching was to tell children what to do; now, its about motivating students to direct their own learning. Parmenter also cited lessons learned from a district compliments conference as becoming a strong point in Jethros teaching style. Instead of an offhand, Thats good, a classroom teacher might say, for example, Id like to compliment you on what you have just done, which was to figure out how to pronounce this new word by sounding out the letters. When the compliment is said aloud in the context of the lesson, Parmenter said, not only does the student get a public gold star, but the other students hear the lesson and good habits reinforced. Parmenters letter, some forms and a video were sent to district offices as a Teacher of the Year application. In the video of Jethros classroom and teaching style, a group of first-graders are seated on the floor around her. She is leading them through the act of looking at pictures in the book, to make meaning of the words on the page. I was wondering and visualizing, says one first-grade boy, who looks even younger than his real age. And what was he wondering and visualizing? About whether there was another frog in the picture and exactly how many there were, he said. Watching the video, Parmenter said that such high-minded vocabulary words and concepts as visualizing in a first-grader is not uncommon. Students pick up words from teachers and the world around them, and there have always been attempts to explain the complicated visualization process. Earlier teachers might have said, See it in your minds eye, or try to imagine it or think it through. Jethros classroom shows she has done a great deal of wondering and visualizing herself. Parmenter shows on a computer screen Jethros lesson plans, which are carefully written out but also synopsized on a computer calendar to let Jethro see quickly the flow of her lessons, week by week. Most teachers do this, of course, but Jethros are extensive, and she prepares lesson plans months ahead. She said she can reuse some plans and materials, but tries to tailor it to the students she actually has any given year. Jethros classroom is divided into learning stations, groups of four or five student desks with folders of various colors placed at each station. Jethro announces which color folder she wants students to study from, and most of the time its the same color of folder. However, whats in one students red folder may not be the same lesson as in anothers. In first grade, the assumption is that all red folders are alike. But when everyone reads from the red folder, theres no stigma attached for a repeated lesson. I try to mix group activities with individual instruction, Jethro said. Having students working like this lets me spend time with individual students, when they arent catching on as quickly as others. Asked if she had any favorite teachers from her childhood, Jethro said, Yes, my first grade teacher. But I remember her most for two things. I was having adjusting problems and she took time with me and made me feel like she cared for me. And to me, thats number one. (I want) students to feel accepted and safe with me. And the other thing I remember about my favorite teacher was that she always had hot pink tissues. That tells you what decade that was. On the other hand, she said, she remembers a sixth-grade teacher who was her least favorite, because he humiliated her in class. I think that was the moment when I said to myself, When I am a teacher that is something I will never do. An Angel in Starke for taking care of Angel, Lucy & Pat in our time of need.

Jonathon attends Bradford High School where he is a member of the marching band, FFA and the National Honor Society. During his scouting career, Jonathon has served as patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader and senior patrol leader. He is also a member of the Order of the Arrow, which is scoutings honor society. During Jonathons speech, he said, I was really interested in the patches. But over time when I progressed through my scouting journey, I became less interested in the patches and more interested in making myself a better leader. He also quoted Herbert Hoove, who said a boys two jobs are just being a boy and growing up to be a man. I believe scouting has helped me and other Eagle Scouts across this nation perform both of those tasks, Jonathon said. Jonathon awarded the mentor pin to fellow Eagle Scout Sean Jones for all his efforts in grooming him for leadership.Get help quitting tobaccoDo you smoke? Do you dip? Do you spit?

Thursday, April 24, 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. What plants will grow in sandy soil? Nancy Murphree, Kingsley Lake Surprisingly, my research on your question revealed a number of articles extoling the virtues of sandy soils for plant growth. It may seem obvious, but how do you know for sure you have sandy soil? Does water drain through your soil, rarely forming puddle even after a hard rain? Is it difficult to squeeze the soil into a ball? If so, you probably have sandy soil. Sandy soil is comprised of many irregular or rounded tiny grains of sand, unlike the many tiny plate-like solid particles that comprise clay soil. Sandy soil grains have more air space between them, which is why it drains better than other types. So sandy soils are best for plants that like to have their roots dry out quickly. Sandy soil is also much easier to work with than clay soils, its lighter, doesnt compact, and is easy to dig in or amend with compost. Most flowering plants benefit from its draining qualities. Transplanted plants sometimes establish more quickly in this type of soil because its easier for their roots to get a foothold in it. They warm up more quickly in the spring, which can also be beneficial for plant growth. But, as youve no doubt discovered, sandy soils do not hold water or nutrients very well. You have to water more deeply and use slow-release type fertilizers to get the most out of this type of soil. Flowering trees that do well in sandy soil are redbud, dogwood, crape myrtle and golden rain trees. Pines do well in sandy soil, and so do annuals like cosmos and lavender. Japanese rose and beach rose likewise do well in sandy soils. You might also consider blueberrymy bushes at Kingsley Lake did much better in sandy soil than my neighbors, which were planted in heavy, dense soil nearer the shoreline. I found several helpful articles on this topic on eHow. In addition, you may want to check with the extension office for other suggestions. Good luck! Mary W.

Hall among winners performing at Suwannee River JamNineteen talented country hopefuls put on a show of shows as they auditioned for the chance of a lifetime to be a performer at the Suwannee River Jam. Five different auditions were held all over North Florida, with more than 75 artists auditioning to get to the finish line, but only nine made it. Among the nine winners was Brittany Hall of Starke. The other winners included Alyssa Billings of Jacksonville, Steffanie Renae of Orange Park, duo of George Aspinall and John Shilby of Jacksonville, all three who were chosen after the first round. Second round winners included Hall, Jolie Crapo of Jacksonville, Kellen Vincent of Lake City, Tenesha Nesha Moore of Jacksonville, Abigail Carpenter of Glen St. Mary and Jasmine Horton of Lake City. Despite torrential downpours on April 18, the rain began to move east as audition time arrived at 7 p.m. and a huge crowd was there to cheer on the auditioners. Each of the winners brought their own unique performances. Hall gave her performance her all, winning over the audience immediately with her strong voice as she hit all the high notes with a big smile on her face. Now, these nine acts with 10 artists will all perform next week at the April 30-May 3 Suwannee River Jam at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak. Besides the winners, superb performances were brought by Jenna Shea Markham of Lake City, Joe Martino of Lake City, Savanna Bassett of Jacksonville, Savannah Ward of Branford, Jessica Lindsey duo of Starke with Jessica Thornton and Lindsey Murphy, Alexus Branscome of Lake City, Maddie Norris of Greenville and Josh Hage of Steinhatchee.

Voting yes gives, the board the authority to do so, and voting no denies it. Starke has also been discussing tax abatement, writing it into a development agreement with Badcock furniture and, at its most recent meeting, discussing offering it as an incentive for future annexation. In other business: Commissioner Lila Sellars reported that tourist development dollars could be used to erect billboards attracting motorists to the city of Starke and the TDC board would be willing to work with the county on this. The idea was raised during a previous discussion by Commissioner Doyle Thomas. the county swapped parcels of land with VyStar Credit Union. The county will be using the land where the credit unions retention pond is currently located to finish construction Southeast 144th Avenue. The retention pond will be relocated. Sheriff Gordon Smith approached the board about rewriting is noise ordinance to eliminate the need for a decibel meter and instead rely on a plainly audible standard as other jurisdictions do.TAXESContinued from 2A County lends support for new MFLs BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Without explicitly asking, the Suwannee River Water Management District received Bradford Countys support for the proposed changes to the minimum flows and levels for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee rivers and associated springs. The support lends weight to SRWMDs case, which is headed to an administrative law judge because of challenges that have been filed protesting the MFLs. Other challenges are being considered. For some the MFLs go too far, and for others they dont go far enough. Carlos Herd, director of the agencys water supply division, told the county commission April 17 that a total of four administrative complaints had been filed, three originating from a single individual and the fourth from the Florida Wildlife Federation. Minimum flows and levels are the lowest water flows and water levels that can occur in a Florida water body without intervention. Water flow reductions are indicative negative impacts to water resources and can be harmful to an areas ecology. Herd said the MFL rule changes would protect the countys water resources and allow the district to begin developing conservation projects. Based on the districts report, both rivers fall below the recommended MFLs, making recovery strategies necessary. The primary impact will be on water use permitting, Herd said. Bradford Countys concern was for residents and farms. Homeowners dont require water permits and are not impacted. Larger agricultural users could be. According to Herd, applicants for new consumptive water permits will be required to offset projected impacts to the MFLs. The rule was changed to accommodate those with existing permits, limiting renewals to five years unless there is an agreement to begin offsetting impact. If applicants agree to offset their impact, they will be eligible for a permit up to 20 years. Applicants or renewal applicants not impacting MFLs will not be restricted by the rule. Were not telling folks they cant have permits, but were putting a little more restriction on those permits before we allow the resource to get in any worse shape, Herd said. The rule will be reviewed and either repealed, modified or readopted by the end of 2019 based on the results of a new groundwater flow model the district is currently working on in conjunction with other agencies. The model is meant to show where the greatest impact on groundwater is taking place. At that point, the rule will probably look much different than it does today, Herd said. If the MFL rule isnt adopted, then permits will continue to be issued as they are now and the water levels in the rivers and springs could get worse, he said. Recovery in the long run will cost more. While residential wells are exempt from permitting, larger wells or smaller wells pumping more than 100,000 gallons a day would fall under the rule. Herd said the district was not asking the county to intervene, but it could show its support with a vote as the administrative law process moves forward. Suwannee County has done so, and Alachua County has reversed its decision to challenge the rule change. Gainesville, on the other hand, is preparing but not filing a challenge, concerned about the requirements that could be placed on GRUs permit renewal. It is good if the administrative law judge sees that local governments are in support of the rule, Herd said. The Bradford County Commission voted unanimously to intervene in the rule challenge on behalf of the water management district and Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Local artist speaks to Womans ClubBY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Womans Club President The Womans Club of Starke welcomed local fiber artist Judy Jull, proprietor of Elza M Studios on Sampson Lake, as its April speaker.

Were just imagining the BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer American Cancer Society statistics show that the cancer death rate for men and women combined decreased by 20 percent from 1991 through 2010. Good news, to be sure, but according to Cancer Statistics 2014, which was published in the American Cancer Society journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, it is estimated that 585,720 people in the U.S. will die from cancer in 2014. It is estimated that 1,665,540 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2014. What the numbers show is that even though there is hope for those who are diagnosed with cancer, cancer is still a prevalent disease that claims a lot of lives. The quest for a cure continues, and it is that end goal that keeps people walking around the Bradford High School track throughout the night during the annual Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Laura Cleesen of Starke has been told she cant finish the fight and become cancer free, but that does not make her any less of a fighter.

Cleesen has battled through two bouts of breast cancer and an occurrence of uterine cancer. In March 2013, the discovery of a small lump on the back of her neck led to a diagnosis of nonHodgkin lymphoma. Doctors have told Cleesen she will never again hear the words, Youre cancer free.

Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 3B Dr. Virgil A. BerryCHIROPRACTIC PHYSICIANServing the area for 21 years. Modern methods with old-fashioned concern. Auto Accidents Work Injuries Headaches Neck and Back PainBack & Neck Pain Clinic Jo es Tires 13761 South US 301 Starke(1/2 mile south of walmart) 964-(8473) led to her first-ever involvement with the American Cancer Society fundraiser. Cleesen was asked to give a survivors speech at this years kickoff party. It was very hard to give that speech because I was never open, Cleesen said, adding, When it was done, I knew I made an impact on some people. They told me it helped them to realize things. If I can do that, then Im accomplishing something. With this Relay, if I can reach out and just help one person through it emotionally, then I know that Im doing OK. Cleesen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. It was a shock, of course. Cleesen said the diagnosis left her wanting to crawl in a hole, but at the same time, she didnt want to let the disease slow her down. Her approach to chemotherapy, for example, was to undergo treatment on Fridays so she could rest on weekends, be green on Mondays and then be able to go to work on Tuesdays. In fact, she told her boss that if she ever called in sick, he was to give her a hard time about it and not to ever let her give up. I was bound and determined I was going to continue working, Cleesen said. Cleesen, though, because of that determination, was holding all of her emotions in check. When the chemotherapy caused her hair to start falling out, she called her boss to say she wouldnt be in to work that day. Her boss response was to go pick Cleesen up, take her to her office and give her the OK to have the emotional outburst she was needing. He physically came and got me, put me in his carin my pajamastook me to my office, shut the blinds in my office, shut the door and looked at me and said, Just cry. You havent cried. You just keep going like everythings OK. I let it go. I just let it out. Then he took me home, and I CLEESENContinued from 1B was OK. Cleesen said eventually hearing those words, Youre cancer free, was a blessing, but she would later be diagnosed with breast cancer again. She wanted to have a double mastectomy done, but doctors advised against that, saying that the surgery was too risky due to the fact Cleesen has an enlarged heart due to cardiomyopathy. It turned out to be a true definition of a catch 22. Having a double mastectomy was a risk, but not having it was a bit of a risk as well. In March 2012, Cleesen was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She said it was the result of cancerous breast tissue. At first, Cleesen didnt suspect the return of cancer. She has diverticulitis and suspected that was what was causing her stomach to swell. I kept getting bigger and bigger in that area, Cleesen said. I actually looked like I was pregnant. As it turned out, Cleesen had three tumors the size of baseballs in her uterus. It was one of those here-wego-again moments, but Cleesen said she thought of how many other ways she had been blessed in life and decided there was nothing to do but keep fighting. That mindset was severely tested a short time later with the discovery of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Cleesen had large, cancerous masses on her neck and on the lymph nodes in her throat. She also had a 6.2-centimeter mass under her tongue toward where her tonsils wouldve been. She had all the masses surgically removed with the exception of the one under her tongue. Cleesen said shes not taking a chance getting that removed because she doesnt want to lose the ability to be able to talk to her two grandchildren. Family has kept Cleesen going, whether its grandchildren Courtni and Camden, children Mark, Amber, Larry and Ashley, future son-in-law Ross or her husband of more than 20 years, Lawrence. She recalled how a doctor told her she wouldnt be around to see the high school graduation of her daughter Amber. Well, Amber, who is 20, has since graduated. If Cleesen has her way, shell be around to see 15-year-old Ashley graduate. However, she has no control over the future. She just focuses her energies on each day as it comes around. You know how people say, Dont count the days, make the days count? Thats basically what I do, Cleesen said. I just enjoy every day. I have my kids, my grandkids, my husband and my friends. Basically, I just pour my heart into all of that. I cant worry about tomorrow because its not here yet. I just live every day. There are bad days, of course. Cleesen said there are some days she doesnt want to get up out of bed. She thinks of others, though, and says to herself that even though her problems may look bad, there is someone out there with worse problems. Ive got to get up, Cleesen BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer A special recognition of Jerry Whitehead and the dedication of a new monument area devoted to fallen Bradford County lawenforcement personnel will highlight this years BradfordUnion Law-Enforcement Memorial Service, which will be hosted this year by the Starke Police Department on Thursday, May 1, at 6:30 p.m. at the Starke Square (538 E. Call St.) between S.R. 100 and S.R. 230. The annual service pays tribute to the officers who gave their lives during service to their respective areas: six in Union County and 19 in Bradford County. Starke Police Capt. Barry Warren said attending the service is a great way for people to express their thanks to those who did so much for the place they call home. Basically, these are the people who made our community as safe as it is today, Warren said. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead, Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith and Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson will pay tribute to Jerry Whitehead, who died Dec. 18, 2013, after a brief illness. He was the longestserving sheriff in the state, having been elected in 1984 and serving up until the time of his death. Its a great opportunity to recognize him, Warren said. Also planned is the official dedication of a monument area to the 19 Bradford County lawenforcement officers who gave their lives in service. The area, which will include 13 benches, consists of a memorial stone placed in honor of each officer as well as 18 palm trees planted in their memories. (One tree represents both father and son George W. Epperson and Henry W. Epperson, who were both former sheriffs.) Warren said the idea for such a physical memorial has been in the works for approximately 10 years. Thanks to the support of donors in the community, the idea has become a realitya reality that has been overdue, Warren said, pointing out that the first officer killed in the line of duty was Dec. 25, 1885, while the last was July 26, 1995. Its time, Warren said. Its beyond time for these people who served their last call in service to this community. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead will perform the roll call for those who gave their lives in service to Union County: Union deputies Hal Croft (May 23, 1961) and Ronald Jackson (May 23, 1961), Department of Corrections officers Paul Jordan (Jan. 24, 1976) and John S. Dennard (May 5, 1983), Union deputy Renee D. Azure (Aug. 6, 2002) and Department of Corrections officer Adam Sanderson (March 6, 2009). Bradford County Sheriffs Department Capt. Brad Smith and Lawtey Correctional Institution Warden Barry Reddish will perform the roll call for Bradford Countys fallen officers: sheriffs George W. Epperson (Dec. 25, 1885), Henry W. Epperson (Jan. 20, 1890) and David Levy Alvarez (May 30, 1891), Bradford deputy Andrew J. Kite (Feb. 21, 1899), Starke Marshall Jeff Jones (Nov. 19, 1903), sheriffs Everett E. Johns (Dec. 6, 1905), Joe A. Bennett (Aug. 9, 1907) and J.W. Langford (Aug. 23, 1912), Bradford deputy W.T. Andrews (Feb. 1, 1914), Constable Richard Bennett (March 30, 1925), Starke officer Leonard E. Colson (Dec. 26, 1951), Florida State Prison Assistant Superintendent James G. Godwin (April 4, 1955), Starke officer William Burtis Jackson (April 20, 1956), Department of Corrections officers Howard D. Starling (July 2, 1964), Julie Gabor Caddell (Sept. 22, 1974) and Richard Burke (Ot. 12, 1980), Bradford deputy Hesley Delmar Griffis (May 13, 1992) and Department of Corrections officer Jerome A. Williams (July 26, 1995).Starke to host Bradford-Union Law-Enforcement Memorial May 1said. I cant feel sorry for myself, and I dont like people to feel sorry for me. I dont want sympathy. Sympathy, no, but support is another matter. Cleesen said it really means a lot to open an email, for example, and read, Good morning, beautiful, or, How are you today? What cancer patients need, more than anything, is support, Cleesen said. With that in mind, Cleesen tries to put on a smile every day and do what she can to be an encouragement to others. Thats why shes looking forward to Relay for Life. She wants to have that positive impact on people who have cancer, even though she, too, has the disease. Theres a reason why Im still here, Cleesen said. Thats the way I look at it. Theres a reason why this happened to me. Theres a reason why Im still fighting, and Ill continue to fight. Laura Cleesen (center) is surrounded by (clockwise from top) son Larry, husband Lawrence, daughter Ashley, granddaughter Courtni and daughter Amber. Not pictured: son Mark and grandson Camden.

Bankat 6 p.m. at the track. Then, once the Relay begins with an opening ceremony that will feature Amber ONeal performing the national anthem, survivors and their caregivers will walk the first lap. Once those survivors get on the track, theres usually not a dry eye, Lee said. Another emotional moment is the luminaria ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at 9:30 p.m. The ceremony consists of paper bags, containing lighted votive candles, placed around the track, bearing the names of survivors, those who are currently battling cancer or those who have lost their lives to cancer. The track stadium lighting will be turned off so that only the glow of the candles is visible as the names of those the bags represent are read aloud. The rest of the event will consist of various themed laps (Mardis Gras, pajamas, hula hoop, super hero, etc.), a scavenger hunt, a Zumba class, a Miss-ter Relay contest, a dance competition and other fun activities, as well as musical performances by Melissa Mann, Shelby Clark, Jessica Thornton and Lindsey Murphy. You also do not have to be a member of a team or a survivor/ caregiver to attend. People are encouraged to show up because there will be several fundraisers going on at the Relay. Many teams will be serving up delicious items, including such fare as fruit kabobs, boiled peanuts, cotton candy, Teriyaki wings and chicken and rice. The Community State Bank team will even be roasting a whole pig. If you go out and eat on Friday night, come down to the track and eat with us, Lee said. As of April 17, 38 fundraising teams (178 participants) had registered to take part in Relay for Life. Though fundraising takes place at the event, it is really a yearlong effort. Thats why teams had already raised $31,000 as of April 17. Community State Bank, for example, had raised more than $5,000 with its Pua the Purple Pig campaign, while D. Mosley Trucking, which joined the cause for the first time a few weeks prior to last years Relay, hosted a golf tournament that raised $4,500. Every year, Maria Stephenson raises the most money as an individual, and this year looks to be no different. As of April 15, she had raised $4,087. The fundraising effort doesnt begin and end with Relay for Life, which ties in with the American Cancer Societys mission this yearFinish the Fight. What that means is we want to encourage everyone who is raising funds for this to finish the fight through Aug. 31 when our fiscal year ends, Lee said. A lot of people think the fundraising ends at the event, but it doesnt. We go on. Last years Relay for Life and various fundraisers raised approximately $72,000, with approximately $9,000 being raised solely at Relay for Life. Both totals were record numbers, and the goal is to do even better this year. Lee said this years total fundraising goal is $90,000. Participating in Relay for Life and raising funds for the American Cancer Society is near and dear to Lees heart. Lee, who lost her mother to lung cancer in 1999, said many people with cancer are not benefiting from the various services and programs the American Cancer Society makes available. The one thing I have found is a lot of people who have been diagnosed with cancer are not aware of the American Cancer Society, Lee said. This will mark Lees sixth year of involvement with Relay for Life. Her fifth year, when she served as team development chair, had one especially memorable moment. Lee was contacted by a woman who had heard about Relay and was seeking more information about it. The two communicated back and forth before Lee met the lady in person at the event. After the event, the woman told Lee she had a wonderful time and said, You dont know how that changed my life. I was homebound. I was just giving up. I wasnt getting out. Its just completely changed my life. Moments like that are what make participation in Relay for Life so special. If you dont touch but one person, its worth it, Lee said.

Dear Editor: Justice Joseph Story stated in his Commentaries on the Constitution 3: 1833 the truth that, The militia is the natural defence of a free country against (1) sudden foreign invasions, (2) domestic insurrections, and (2) domestic usurpations of power by rulers. The Bundy Ranch Standoff is an example of #3 above. This is where the IAP stands in this fiasco? We stand with Cliven Bundy, who said: I dont recognize them (the federal government) having any jurisdiction or authority over this land. In the United States the people are the government; their united voice is the only sovereign that should rule, and only power that should be obeyed. The fact that a desert tortoise is endangered doesnt change this fact. The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) usurpation in forcing the Bundys to pay for land that has been in his family for 140 years doesnt change this fact. For those of us who still labor under the conviction that the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, it must be observed that the only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations. Thats it! All other law enforcement matters are the purview of the individual states, according to the Tenth Amendment. Unfortunately, for most of the Twentieth Century the federal government has demanded more and more power and authority that it does not constitutionally possess. And, for the most part, the individual states have sheepishly done little to resist, not to mention (in this case) County law enforcement. All of which has led to the events that are now playing out in Clark County, Nevada.

If you will give Brad a chance the people wilt see that he will take care of them. A true southern gentleman would let them rest in peace so their family can have closure.

Williston would go up 5-0 before hanging on for a 7-6 win. Rogers and Worrell batted 2-for-3 and 2-for-2, respectively, while freshman Seth Hendricks went 2-for-3 to help Union rally. The Tigers had the tying run on third base in the last inning, but Dukes said the Williston shortstop made a great play on a ball that wouldve normally been a hit in most cases. The Tigers responded to the loss by winning all 10 of their remaining games, including a 6-5 win over Williston. That second matchup against Williston saw Union take a 6-0 lead into the seventh, but an approximately 30-minute injury timeout after two Williston outfielders collided seemed to take something away from his team, Dukes said. Williston scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh, but Lovelace entered the game and did a good job on the mound, Dukes said. Lovelace forced the Devils to hit a couple of ground balls before Williston hit a dribbler back to the mound for what would be the games final out. Worrell started the game, giving up one hit and striking out five in five innings. At the plate, Joyner was 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Lovelace was 2-for-4 with an RBI. After avenging their only loss, the Tigers won their final five games by an average score of 14-3. They defeated Interlachen 7-4, Bell 10-5, St. Francis 25-0, Hamilton County 9-7 and Dixie County 17-1. In the season finale against Dixie, Rogers and Joyner were 4-for-4 and 4-for-5, respectively, while sophomore Garrett Williams was 3-for-4. Worrell was 2-for-2, while Driggers and sophomore Dalton Teston were each 2-for-3. Also contributing to the best season Dukes can ever remember were sophomore Kyle Davis and freshmen Matthew Jobin, Stephen Milner, Garrett Ritch, Jarrett Shadd and Dylan Thornton. There were not many games that all 14 did not in some way contribute, Dukes said. The Tigers also excelled in the classroom, with each player maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA. Half the team had weighted GPAs of 4.0 or higher. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a season to be remembered and a good sign for the future of Union County High School baseball as the junior varsity team went 12-1, with its lone loss coming by one run against Williston. Our varsity program certainly has some promise, Union head coach Bret Dukes said. The Tigers scored an average of 11 runs per game, while allowing an average of just four per game. Their last gamea 17-1 win over Dixie County was a good way to put the icing on the cake of an unbelievable season, Dukes said. Offensively, sophomore Willie Rogers and freshman Phillip Joyner provided a spark, batting .520 and .470, respectively, in the lead-off position and numbertwo positions. Hitting and getting on base is almost contagious, Dukes said. Though Rogers and Joyner led the team, Dukes said it was hard to really single out any player from the rest of the lineup, which batted a cumulative .360. We were so consistent in our lineup, Dukes said. It did not matter who was coming up. You had confidence the kid was going to get it done. Dukes said the Tigers had several players who could throw strikes, including freshman Taz Worrell, who led the team. Worrell went 4-0 and had a 2.30 ERA. Dukes, though, singled out freshman J.C. Lovelace for providing consistency as one of several middle relievers as well as sophomore Casey Driggers, who got in a zone the last couple of weeks of the season and pitched lights out. The Tigers opened the season by defeating Interlachen 10-5 and followed that with a 6-3 win over. In their third game, however, the Tigers got off to a slow start and committed six errors in the first two innings. Visiting The recent large bass caught in Kingsley Lake have created a lot of talk among local fishermen. This is the second year in a row that 14-plus-pound bass have been caught in Kingsley. In 2013, Len Andrews pulled into a dock on the western bank of the lake and weighed one that went over 14 pounds.   Afterward, he released the fish unharmed. This year, two fish over 14 pounds have been landed, weighed and released. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission accepted the 14-pound, 9-ounce bass that Brooks Morrell caught, placing him at the top of the FWC Trophy Catch Program. Brooks indicated that he has landed nine bass over 9 pounds, four over 10 pounds and two over 13 poundsall in Kingsley Lake. He is also aware of three others that have been caught that were over 13 pounds. Kingsley Lake is no stranger to large bass. In 1967, Benny Zoltoski was trolling around Kingsley with two bass in his livewell that weighed about 10 pounds each. However, when he passed what was then Kingsley Beach and headed to the Officers Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 5B Fins, Fur & Tails and presentClub at Camp Blanding, he had a huge hit, which he thought was a hang-up, until the line-water intersection began to move outward, indicating that the hook was moving toward the surface. Making a long story short, it was not a hang-up, but a 16-pound, 6-ounce bass that was eventually mounted, hanging on the wall of Stricklands Store for years. The history of big bass in North Central Florida does not center entirely around Kingsley Lake, however. Buddy Wright, a current resident of Keystone Heights who has always fished from a 12-foot jon boat and has never fished in a bass tournament, was having a good day on the St. Johns River south of Palatka in April 1987. He had a couple of nice catches under his belt that weighed over 5 pounds each. His last catch of the day caught on a Bill Norman Weed Walker lurewas a monster that weighed in at 18 pounds, 13 ounces.   Unfortunately the fish lost a lot of roe before its first weight on a certified, accurate scale. The fish was subsequently frozen and thawed out for another certified weight. However, the FWC would not recognize the fish because a wildlife officer did not get to Wrights home until two weeks after notification and after the fish was frozen, thus depriving Wright of a Florida record. All was not lost, though, because the International Game Fish Association did recognize the catch as a world record for a 16-pound-line weight catch, and Wright has that plaque on his wall beside the replica. Believe it or not, the largest bass landed in Bradford, Clay or Union counties, according to this research and in recent history, came from Brooklyn Lake in Keystone. In 1966, Forest and Stream magazine, which later became Field and Stream, published an article about an 18-pound, 2-ounce bass caught by Hugh Paul. Though there have been larger bass caught, the gold standard for record largemouth bass is still the 1932 George Perry bass that weighed 22 pounds, 4 ounces, with a 32.5-inch length and 28.5-inch girth. Manabu Kurita caught a 22-pound, 4.97-ounce bass in Japan on July 2, 2009. (Despite bettering the Perry bass by almost an ounce, IGFA rules consider the catch a tie with the Perry bass.) In 2006, Mac Weakley foul hooked and landed a 25-pound, 0.01-ounce bass that was photographed, weighed and released. Paul Nosca has done a significant amount of research on the 25 largest bass ever caught, and he makes several good observations about record largemouth bass. Many of the larger Florida bass have been very long and comparatively light in weight.   Bill Whipple caught what is considered to be the world record longest bass in 2002 on Lake Toho. The bass was 33 inches in length, but weighed only 14 pounds and 6 ounces. Certainly bass caught in the spawn and full of roe would have a significant weight advantage over fish caught while not spawning. Noscas research on the largest 25 bass ever caught can be found online under his name.Fishing outlookDespite some reports to the contrary, especially on Newnans Lake, the specks should be moving to deeper water as they finish their spring spawn. Shellcrackers and bluegills should be swapping places with the specks as they prepare for their first spawn.   The initial spawn for the shellcrackers will be their primary bedding season for the year, while the bluegills will bed continuously throughout the summer, especially around full and new moons. The big fish and comprehensive weights at the local tournaments have shown a little decline, which would suggest that the bass spawn is beginning to wane somewhat.   It might show a brief spark after the traditionally cool Easter, but this yearly phenomena will also soon begin to close ranks.   When that occurs, the quest for bream and bass will begin to compete equally for the remainder of the summer. The better part of the sheepshead spawn on both inshore coasts, but the stripped and toothy creatures will continue to hang out around the rocks, oyster bars and bridges over the summer. As the coastal waters warm, pompano and whiting will take up residence on the beaches, and the kings will move in to the beaches in time for the big kingfish tournaments on the east coast.   Local tourney resultsThe results of the April 16 Bald Eagle Bass Tournament are: Drew Carroll and Chris Hollingsworth in first, Chris Kadlec and Glenn Barnes in second, Wayne Geiger and Zach Smith in third and Ryan Gonzales with the big fish.   The results of the April 17 Sampson Lake Tournament are: Braden Gray and Cason Noles in first, Ronny Pruitt and Matthew Elixson in second and Elixson with the big fish.

The 3-yearold was her brother, and she told the deputy her parents were in town grocery shopping. While the deputy waited for the parents to come home, the 11-year-old proceeded to cook dinner for the others, boiling water for hot dogs. When the parents, Terri and Christopher Palmer, showed up, Terri Palmer said this was the first time they had left them alone. The deputy stated he had been told otherwise, at which point Terri Palmer started to have a negative attitude, according to the deputy. She also stated she knew she was going to be arrested, so he should just go ahead and arrest her.

Vansyckel was located and arrested, but denied knowing the 14-year-olds were stealing, too. Another Walmart employee observed her conferring with the juveniles and assisting them by placing items into bags, so she was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

According to the arrest and offense reports, a 14-year-old runaway from Columbia County stayed with Merriex at his mothers home in Providence for four nights and five days before a deputy located her at the residence in mid-October of last year. The runaway was returned to her family, and a warrant was issued for the arrest of Merriex. When deputies returned to the Providence area several days later to arrest Merriex, the same runaway was with him again, and they tried to elude the officers by fleeing into the woods. They were tracked and located several hours later by the canine unit. The runaway had a lot of superficial wounds on her body from being dragged through the brush and woods by Merriex trying to elude the deputies. Merriex was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car and transported to the jail, but he apparently worked his hands from behind his body to the front of his body during the trip. When the deputy went to remove him from the vehicle at the jail, Merriex kicked the door and knocked the deputy down and took off running. He was able to elude law enforcement and the canine unit, which tracked him for several hours in Lake Butler and toward Providence before stopping. Merriex was arrested in Columbia County several weeks later in November 2013 on unrelated charges from Columbia and has been in jail since then. He was transported to the Union County Jail on April 8 to face charges in Union, where he is still being held.

The manager followed Gainey out to get him to stop, but he didnt until an unidentified customer stopped him. When the officer arrived, Gainey stated he had been drinking all day and ran out of alcohol at his house, but didnt have the money to pay for the wine, so he thought he would just take it from the store.

The victim finally shoved Lewis against the door and ran out of the house to her mothers home across the yard and called law enforcement. Lewis was located in Alachua and arrested. Shawn Matthew Eiserman, 25, of Lawtey was arrested April 18 by Union deputies for hit and run, distribution and possession of marijuana, possession of drugs public order crime-using twoway device to facilitate a felony. According to the arrest report, a deputy was called to the Hungry Howies in Lake Butler about a traffic crash. Eiserman told the deputy he backed into a car on the other side of a gas pump, but was acting very nervous and stuttering and shaking when he was getting out his drivers license. The deputy asked him to get his registration from the vehicle while he interviewed the owner of the car Eiserman hit. Instead of getting his registration, Eiserman went behind Hungry Howies and jumped in a vehicle parked there with an acquaintance of his in it. He then threw what appeared to the deputy to be a bag of marijuana on the drivers side of the floorboard. The deputy had both men exit the vehicle, retrieved the marijuana from the acquaintance and arrested Eiserman. A later search of his vehicle turned up a brown bag with a over 50 grams of marijuana in it and a pill bottle with cocaine. The acquaintance, Joseph James Lacy, 32, of Lake Butler, was also arrested and charged with resisting an officer, possession of marijuana and possession of drugs, using a vehicle to sell or store drugs and public order crime-using two-way device to facilitate a felony After his arrest, Lacy told deputies that Eiserman was on his way from Starke to meet him to make a deal for the marijuana. When Eiserman had the accident at the gas pump, he called Lacy, and Lacy came to the store. Lacy stated that Eiserman went over and gave him the marijuana right before the deputy arrived. When Lacy was ordered out of the vehicle along with Eiserman, he refused several times to place his hands on the vehicle so the deputy could pat him down for weapons. He only did so after the deputy told him he would be tasered if he didnt cooperate. The deputy also found a bag with cocaine in it during his search of Lacy.

and tie the score at 1-1. Gault, who doubled in two of her previous three at-bats, followed with another single that scored Atkinson. I didnt hit it where I wanted it, but, hey, a single will work for me, said Gault, who was 3-for4. Adkins gave up seven hits and five walks, but pitched the Tornadoes out of several jams. P.K. Yonge (21-3) loaded the bases twice, but failed to score in each instance, and also had innings where it failed to score when it had runners in scoring position with one out. Of Adkins 10 strikeouts, five ended innings. We always say its one versus ninenine players against that one batter, Gault said, but (Adkins) really held us in this game. She worked her heart out. She pitched great. For her part, Adkins said, I just knew I had to focus and concentrate on our main goal, which was to not let them score hardly any runs so we could have a chance to win this game. Gault got the Tornadoes off to a good start when she doubled to lead off the game. However, P.K. Yonge pitcher Kalen McGill retired three straight batters to leave Gault stranded on third. Two hits and a walk loaded the bases for P.K. Yonge with just one out in the bottom of the inning. A baserunning miscue by the Blue Wave afer a forceout at home allowed Bradford to get out of the inning without surrendering a run. P.K. Yonge put two on with no outs in the second, but Adkins recorded two strikeouts as well as holding the two base runners in place after fielding a bunt before throwing to first for an out. Adkins recorded her fifth strikeout of the game to end the third inning after the Blue Wave loaded the bases with two outs. (Adkins) always gives great effort and shines every time she goes on the mound, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Mackenzie Gault capped a three-hit night with a single that scored what would prove to be the winning run in the Bradford High School softball teams 2-1 win over P.K. Yonge in the District 5-4A championship game on April 17 in Alachua. It was the second straight district championship for the Tornadoes (18-7), who played District 6 runner-up South Sumter in a regional quarterfinal game on April 23. Bradford, the tournaments second seed, had lost its previous two matchups with top seed P.K. Yonge by one run each. Its an indescribable feeling, pitcher Ashton Adkins said. Its amazing just knowing that weve struggled with them the past two times. This win meant so much to me and my team. Its just tremendous. The Tornadoes had three hits entering the top of the seventh, but lead-off batter Annie Luke hit a single, while a throwing error on Jaci Atkinsons ground ball to the shortstop gave Bradford two on with no outs. After P.K. Yonge recorded the innings first out, Lindsey Wiggins hit a hard single up the middle to score courtesy runner Taylor Crawford Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 11B Bradford and Union County extended their seasons and will play for the championships in their respective district tournaments, while Keystone Heights saw its season come to an end in its district semifinals.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Former Hampton Mayor Barry Moore was convicted on two drug-related counts late Tuesday night. After a daylong trial, the jury deliberated less than two hours, according to Bradford County Sheriffs Office Capt. Brad Smith. Moore was found guilty of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and dealing in a controlled substance. According to an investigation that led to his arrest last November, Moore was dealing in Oxycodone. Foreshadowing the scandal that embroiled the city of Hampton when the results of a state audit were made public in January, Moores arrest made headlines, and even drew comparison to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, another public figure notorious for drug abuse and outrageous behavior. Moore, however, had only been mayor for a few months, and his problems were completely separate from Hamptons, except that his attainment of office was perhaps another example of the lack of vigilance that got the town into trouble. His past included arrests for driving with a suspended license, violating probation and battery. Moore was suspended when he was arrested and has since resigned from office, apologizing for any embarrassment he caused the city. Moore has been in jail since his arrest and that will continue until his sentencing, which is scheduled for June 10. Judge Robert Groeb said Moore should be held given previous failures to appear for court. Not so fast! County challenging Starke annexation BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Bradford County wants the city of Starke to relinquish a portion of U.S. 301 annexed in 2006 and has consulted the Florida attorney general for a ruling on the matter. It is also challenging the recent annexation of the property where the new Badcock Furniture story will be built. Sheriff Gordon Smith and his staff appeared before the county commission April 17 to explain the dilemma posed by the Starkes highway annexations. If we dont fix it now, its only going to create a further problem. Its an issue of right or wrong to me, Smith said. Sgt. Ray Shuford, director of communications and emergency 911 for the sheriffs office, highlighted some of the problems discovered when they were researching the current and past annexations on 301 south of the city. In 2005, Starke annexed the Walmart Supercenter. It was contiguous with the citys sprayfield, and the annexation kept the retailer in the city limits in exchange for the extension of city water and wastewater. It is not being challenged. In 2006, the city commission annexed the traffic signal at Walmart for traffic control purposes, but it did so by annexing the U.S. 301 corridor south of the existing city limits to Walmart. This is the first problematic annexation, according to Shuford. In annexing the 301 corridor, Starke created three separate enclaves on the west side of the highway areas that were outside of the city limits but were bounded on all sides by property or right of way inside the city limits. Enclaves are unlawful, and the confusion they create is detrimental from the viewpoint of public safety, Shuford said. Countywide, addressing follows a national standard to get police, firefighters and paramedics where they are needed. The whole idea behind this is that the addresses we create are supposed to help first responders get to people faster, Shuford said. If we create something thats going to slow any of that down or create any confusion, then we have eliminated the whole purpose INSIDE: Ready For The Relay BHS Softball Team Wins District Brooker teacher named top in district BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph Frances Jethro is Brooker Elementary Schools Teacher of the Year. She was also selected to represent the Bradford school district and will go forward to compete as Floridas Teacher of the Year. Jethro teaches first grade at Brooker Elementary and has been in the Bradford system for only three years. She and her family live in Gainesville. She taught one year at Southside Elementary School in Starke, and asked for a transfer to shorten her daily drive. Now, she gets to work and home again with no more than a pleasant, rural, 20-minute commute. It takes that long to get from one side of Gainesville to the other, she said last week. Frances and Jay, her husband of 32 years, have two boys, one 22 and another 16. She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but said she doesnt advertise that much in the South. She was raised in south Florida and went to college at Lee University in Tennessee. She did some graduate work at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Jethro has almost 25 years of teaching experience. She has taught in Tennessee and in Florida, in private Christian schools and in public schools. Inside school settings, she has taught kindergarten through middle school, and outside school settings she has also taught art and dance. Since there are only eight teachers at Brooker Elementary, it wasnt surprising that she had a shot at the schools Teacher of the Year title. But, she said, she wasnt prepared for the day Bradford School Superintendent Chad Farnsworth walked into her classroom to tell her she was the districts choice, too. I didnt know what to say, she said. I just stood there looking at him.

R Arson investigation uncovers theft ring BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The investigation of a fire that destroyed a Melrose-area convenience store uncovered a theft ring that detectives say victimized over 50 houses and businesses in a four-county area. According to a Clay County Sheriffs Office report, hours after deputies responded to a blaze at Nicks Quick Stop, a Chevron-branded convenience store at the corner of S.R. 21 and Lakeview Road, Detective Stacey E. Durham made contact with two suspects. The April 14 fire gutted the structure, which lies inside Clay County but is within 300 feet of Putnam and Bradford counties. Durham wrote that Mathew Ryan Cemer, 14, and Frederick James Martin, 18, met him two blocks from Nicks Quick Stop. Durham transported the two suspects to Cemers home in Putnam County, and asked Putnam deputies to obtain a search warrant for the house. Once inside the residence, investigators found $1,000 worth of cigarettes and tobacco products, a computer and other merchandise from the convenience store. They also discovered hundreds of items of stolen property associated with numerous burglaries. The Putnam County Sheriffs Office said detectives determined the stolen items are from more than 50 burglaries committed in Bradford, Clay, Alachua and Putnam Counties. Putnam deputies arrested Cemer and Martin for burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief. They also arrested Kenneth Baldinelli, 14, of Melrose for armed burglary, grand theft of a firearm and grand theft, and Adam Boyd, 14, of Melrose on the same charges. In addition, Putman deputies charged Cemers parents, Casey Marie Gaffney, 33, and Michael David Lavane, 38, both of Melrose with child neglect and dealing in stolen property. On April 22, Clay deputies served arrest warrants on Martin and Cemer, charging them with burglary, grand theft and arson for crimes committed at Nicks Quick Stop. Frederick Martin Michael Lavane County: Well take animal control and zoning BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County Commission is abandoning any fee for animal control services from the city of Starke. Starkes government wont be expected to supplement the countys animal control budget in any waypart of County Chairman Danny Riddicks plan to put the disagreements of the past to rest and work together more important matters, like economic development. Riddick told the county commission it would be the start of good things. In addition to accepting sole responsibility for animal control services, the county commission also wants Starke to turn its building and zoning services back over to the county. Riddick said they represented the entire county, so this was the right and proper thing to do. Its best for everybody, Riddick said. Giving up on the animal control fee was bitter pill for some to swallow. Commissioner Ross Chandler, however, said the county wasnt losing anything; it hasnt received any animal control fee from the city in years. To me its a nonissue, Chandler said. The only caveat was Sheriff Gordon Smiths request that the county only be obliged to follow its own animal control policies, not anything on the citys books. Commissioner Eddie Lewis asked if the county was going to have to come up with any more money to cover the cost of the department, and Smith said no. The city has been providing the shelter building and property and paying six months of utility bills a year at the animal control facility. That will no longer be necessary once the county moves into its new facility, which is being built behind the solid waste collection site off of S.R. 100. The county had also sought compensation from the city to help cover the cost of running the building and zoning office, at which point the city commission decided to reopen its own building and zoning office. Now the county is backing off that request with a new proposal to get all building and zoning responsibility back in its hands. The county office wouldnt just process zoning applications, issue permits and conduct building inspections. It would take over the entire process, including placing the city under the countys land development regulations and approving zoning changes and site plans for development in the city. There would be one zoning board/ board of adjustment operating under the county commission. Bradford County would collect and retain all building and zoning fees, although Starke would resume collecting its impact fees once its moratorium has ended. Starke would not have the authority to waive zoning or other fees, which was the original source of the countys complaint. This would definitely benefit the citizens, it would be better for Bradford County, and we have a great building and zoning operation, said Riddick, who also claimed support from the North Florida Regional Planning Council. With a city as small as Starke, he said it doesnt pay to have two separate offices, one part time, when the county has a full-time staff. County Commissioner Doyle Thomas said he didnt want it to look like the county was trying to take over and tell the city what to do. Lewis said unlike animal control, these are not all things Starke wants the county to do. But Riddick and Chandler made it clear, this was an offer, not an ultimatum. Also unlike animal control, which wont cost the county commission any more than it is now, the process of converting the city zoning map to county classifications would come with a price tag. If that is the case, the Chandler said, the county would have to consider whether its economically sound to spend thousands of dollars doing so. While Thomas said his support for the proposal would depend on the citys complete agreement, Lewis said his support was contingent upon the city not asking for any portion of the service fees collected. Riddick agreed: one office, one central authority. Like you said, Im not trying to force them to do anything. I just know that the city says theyre hurting for money, and this would be a way to help them with that, and it would also be a way to benefit the citizens of Bradford County, he said. The proposal was discussed by the county commission April 17. It remains to be seen whether the city commission will be receptive to the offer. Tax abatement on the ballot BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Should the county entice new development by offering tax abatement? Voters will decide this year, as county commissioners agreed April 17 to put the question on the ballot this fall. There wasnt much discussion about the move although it has been on, and slipped, the countys mind before. The commission was approached by business leaders in 2010 about establishing incentives for economic development. Property tax abatement was one idea, but it must be approved by voters. There was no time to get it on the ballot in 2010, so the soonest it could go before voters was 2012. By then, the request had been forgotten. Voters gave the commission the authority to abate taxes on new development back in the mid 1990s, but the that authority expires after 10 years. Per Florida Statute 196.1995, The board of county commissioners of any county or the governing authority of any municipality shall call a referendum within its total jurisdiction to determine whether its respective jurisdiction may grant economic development ad valorem tax exemptions. It may do so under two circumstances: either the governing board votes to put the question on the ballot or the public petitions to do so. As county attorney Will Sexton pointed out, the statute even spells out the language of the referendum. Shall the board of county commissioners of this county (or the governing authority of this municipality, or both) be authorized to grant, pursuant to s. 3, Art. VII of the State Constitution, property tax exemptions to new businesses See TAXES, 7A

Shuford pointed out how the properties along the west side of 301 in that area have alternating city and county addresses. How do you find 1750 S. Walnut when hes bounded on both sides by county addresses? he asked. The computer software used by the mapping department automatically rejects this lack of logic, and each time there is an update, staff must manually override it and reenter the Starke addresses. When that happens, the automatic assignment of responding agencies and stations to those addresses goes out the window, Shuford said. Sheriff Smith said the city is claiming Southwest 143 rd Street as well, but all of the properties along the street have county addresses. If the county were to accept that is a city road, he would have to tell those residents their address is changing, and he doesnt want to do that. The annexation of the new Badcock property at Southeast 142 nd Way, which the city commission approved April 1, is the latest complication. Because it is not contiguous to the city, nothing around it is assigned a city address. It will be an island to itself. The city believes the problem will eventually solve itself as more of that area is voluntarily annexed, but Commissioner Eddie Lewis said the residents north and south of the Badcock property dont want to be part of the city, so it will never be contiguous. The enclaves, the lack of compactness, the unlawfulness of annexing a highway corridor were all discussed, but Shuford further showed that the citys notice to the county and public advertisement of the annexations had been inadequate. The county also had a letter from Scott Koons, executive director of the North Florida Regional Planning Council, which noted the same troubles with the citys actions and denied that the planning council had advised the city that the Badcock annexation was appropriate under the circumstances. In addition to creating a public safety nightmare, the sheriff called the annexations illegal and wrong. One city commissioner asked me when I became an attorney, and I said I was smarter than that and I can read, Smith said. He said he doesnt have a problem with the city growing, but it needs to be done the right way. The city claims 301, like the Badcock property, was voluntarily annexed, Smith said. Who volunteered? he asked. The city undertook a voluntary annexation without a petition from a property owner. Smith said he was told the county never contested the annexation, but he said the county was never notified. You cant contest something that you werent aware of, he said. Shuford said they are now asking the city to contract its boundaries, relinquishing 301. The 301 annexation was not done, in our opinion legally or properly, and it needs to be undone, Shuford said. To that end, county attorney Will Sexton said the first step would be to see if Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi agrees with the countys assessment. Im not aware that there is another case out there where a city so blatantly did what the city of Starke did, Sexton said. If the attorney general finds no problem with the annexations, then that will be the end. But if the city hears from an authority like the attorney general that the annexations were illegal, it might be motivated to act on its own to contract its boundaries before the county has to force the issue, Sexton said. Smith said he doesnt know how things got to this point, and thought everything was resolved when they met with the city attorney and clerk about the Badcock annexation. He said he hopes the city and county dont end up in court. Any general citizen can read what the law says, and thats in total violation, he said.

ANNEX Continued from 1A there for; I knew who he was, but I felt like I had to apologize for being so speechless. Jethro said she would just as soon the title had gone to other teachers who had been in the system for years. Still, she was selected for the honor by her fellow teachers. Brooker Principal Debbie Parmenter explained why Jethro deserved to be named Teacher of the Year. In her letter of support, Parmenter wrote, Mrs. Jethro is the epitome of a career teacher. She creates an atmosphere of support both for and among her students. Teaching is as essential to Mrs. Jethro as breathing. No matter what the difficulty, she will find a way to endure and overcome. Most importantly, she will do what she knows is right for her students, no matter what. Parmenter gave two examples to explain why Jethro had earned the admiration of her peers. One was her classroom interpretation of Making Meaning, the districts new approach to teaching reading. Jethro said she had trouble with the program at first, but, understood why the approach was important. I try to grasp new ideas quickly but I dont do well until I make it my own and understand what the goal is, Jethro said. She worked with District Reading Coach Terry Shewmaker to implement the new system, adding her own creative activities and strategies. The new programs strength is that it tells kids how to do something; how to let them take ownership of their own learning, Parmenter said. She added that traditional teaching was to tell children what to do; now, its about motivating students to direct their own learning. Parmenter also cited lessons learned from a district compliments conference as becoming a strong point in Jethros teaching style. Instead of an offhand, Thats good, a classroom teacher might say, for example, Id like to compliment you on what you have just done, which was to figure out how to pronounce this new word by sounding out the letters. When the compliment is said aloud in the context of the lesson, Parmenter said, not only does the student get a public gold star, but the other students hear the lesson and good habits reinforced. Parmenters letter, some forms and a video were sent to district offices as a Teacher of the Year application. In the video of Jethros classroom and teaching style, a group of first-graders are seated on the floor around her. She is leading them through the act of looking at pictures in the book, to make meaning of the words on the page. I was wondering and visualizing, says one first-grade boy, who looks even younger than his real age. And what was he wondering and visualizing? About whether there was another frog in the picture and exactly how many there were, he said. Watching the video, Parmenter said that such high-minded vocabulary words and concepts as visualizing in a first-grader is not uncommon. Students pick up words from teachers and the world around them, and there have always been attempts to explain the complicated visualization process. Earlier teachers might have said, See it in your minds eye, or try to imagine it or think it through. Jethros classroom shows she has done a great deal of wondering and visualizing herself. Parmenter shows on a computer screen Jethros lesson plans, which are carefully written out but also synopsized on a computer calendar to let Jethro see quickly the flow of her lessons, week by week. Most teachers do this, of course, but Jethros are extensive, and she prepares lesson plans months ahead. She said she can reuse some plans and materials, but tries to tailor it to the students she actually has any given year. Jethros classroom is divided into learning stations, groups of four or five student desks with folders of various colors placed at each station. Jethro announces which color folder she wants students to study from, and most of the time its the same color of folder. However, whats in one students red folder may not be the same lesson as in anothers. In first grade, the assumption is that all red folders are alike. But when everyone reads from the red folder, theres no stigma attached for a repeated lesson. I try to mix group activities with individual instruction, Jethro said. Having students working like this lets me spend time with individual students, when they arent catching on as quickly as others. Asked if she had any favorite teachers from her childhood, Jethro said, Yes, my first grade teacher. But I remember her most for two things. I was having adjusting problems and she took time with me and made me feel like she cared for me. And to me, thats number one. (I want) students to feel accepted and safe with me. And the other thing I remember about my favorite teacher was that she always had hot pink tissues. That tells you what decade that was. On the other hand, she said, she remembers a sixth-grade teacher who was her least favorite, because he humiliated her in class. I think that was the moment when I said to myself, When I am a teacher that is something I will never do. An Angel in Starke for taking care of Angel, Lucy & Pat in our time of need.

Easter egg excitement Funderburk earns Eagle Scout rank On April 19, Jonathon Kyle Funderburk from Troop 70 was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout, scoutings highest honor. Jonathon attends Bradford High School where he is a member of the marching band, FFA and the National Honor Society. During his scouting career, Jonathon has served as patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader and senior patrol leader. He is also a member of the Order of the Arrow, which is scoutings honor society. During Jonathons speech, he said, I was really interested in the patches. But over time when I progressed through my scouting journey, I became less interested in the patches and more interested in making myself a better leader. He also quoted Herbert Hoove, who said a boys two jobs are just being a boy and growing up to be a man. I believe scouting has helped me and other Eagle Scouts across this nation perform both of those tasks, Jonathon said. Jonathon awarded the mentor pin to fellow Eagle Scout Sean Jones for all his efforts in grooming him for leadership. Get help quitting tobacco Do you smoke? Do you dip? Do you spit?

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. What plants will grow in sandy soil? Nancy Murphree, Kingsley Lake Surprisingly, my research on your question revealed a number of articles extoling the virtues of sandy soils for plant growth. It may seem obvious, but how do you know for sure you have sandy soil? Does water drain through your soil, rarely forming puddle even after a hard rain? Is it difficult to squeeze the soil into a ball? If so, you probably have sandy soil. Sandy soil is comprised of many irregular or rounded tiny grains of sand, unlike the many tiny plate-like solid particles that comprise clay soil. Sandy soil grains have more air space between them, which is why it drains better than other types. So sandy soils are best for plants that like to have their roots dry out quickly. Sandy soil is also much easier to work with than clay soils, its lighter, doesnt compact, and is easy to dig in or amend with compost. Most flowering plants benefit from its draining qualities. Transplanted plants sometimes establish more quickly in this type of soil because its easier for their roots to get a foothold in it. They warm up more quickly in the spring, which can also be beneficial for plant growth. But, as youve no doubt discovered, sandy soils do not hold water or nutrients very well. You have to water more deeply and use slow-release type fertilizers to get the most out of this type of soil. Flowering trees that do well in sandy soil are redbud, dogwood, crape myrtle and golden rain trees. Pines do well in sandy soil, and so do annuals like cosmos and lavender. Japanese rose and beach rose likewise do well in sandy soils. You might also consider blueberrymy bushes at Kingsley Lake did much better in sandy soil than my neighbors, which were planted in heavy, dense soil nearer the shoreline. I found several helpful articles on this topic on eHow. In addition, you may want to check with the extension office for other suggestions. Good luck! Mary W.

Starke has also been discussing tax abatement, writing it into a development agreement with Badcock furniture and, at its most recent meeting, discussing offering it as an incentive for future annexation. In other business: Commissioner Lila Sellars reported that tourist development dollars could be used to erect billboards attracting motorists to the city of Starke and the TDC board would be willing to work with the county on this. The idea was raised during a previous discussion by Commissioner Doyle Thomas. the county swapped parcels of land with VyStar Credit Union. The county will be using the land where the credit unions retention pond is currently located to finish construction Southeast 144 th Avenue. The retention pond will be relocated.

TAXES Continued from 2A County lends support for new MFLs BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Without explicitly asking, the Suwannee River Water Management District received Bradford Countys support for the proposed changes to the minimum flows and levels for the Lower Santa Fe and Ichetucknee rivers and associated springs. The support lends weight to SRWMDs case, which is headed to an administrative law judge because of challenges that have been filed protesting the MFLs. Other challenges are being considered. For some the MFLs go too far, and for others they dont go far enough. Carlos Herd, director of the agencys water supply division, told the county commission April 17 that a total of four administrative complaints had been filed, three originating from a single individual and the fourth from the Florida Wildlife Federation. Minimum flows and levels are the lowest water flows and water levels that can occur in a Florida water body without intervention. Water flow reductions are indicative negative impacts to water resources and can be harmful to an areas ecology. Herd said the MFL rule changes would protect the countys water resources and allow the district to begin developing conservation projects. Based on the districts report, both rivers fall below the recommended MFLs, making recovery strategies necessary. The primary impact will be on water use permitting, Herd said. Bradford Countys concern was for residents and farms. Homeowners dont require water permits and are not impacted. Larger agricultural users could be. According to Herd, applicants for new consumptive water permits will be required to offset projected impacts to the MFLs. The rule was changed to accommodate those with existing permits, limiting renewals to five years unless there is an agreement to begin offsetting impact. If applicants agree to offset their impact, they will be eligible for a permit up to 20 years. Applicants or renewal applicants not impacting MFLs will not be restricted by the rule. Were not telling folks they cant have permits, but were putting a little more restriction on those permits before we allow the resource to get in any worse shape, Herd said. The rule will be reviewed and either repealed, modified or readopted by the end of 2019 based on the results of a new groundwater flow model the district is currently working on in conjunction with other agencies. The model is meant to show where the greatest impact on groundwater is taking place. At that point, the rule will probably look much different than it does today, Herd said. If the MFL rule isnt adopted, then permits will continue to be issued as they are now and the water levels in the rivers and springs could get worse, he said. Recovery in the long run will cost more. While residential wells are exempt from permitting, larger wells or smaller wells pumping more than 100,000 gallons a day would fall under the rule. Herd said the district was not asking the county to intervene, but it could show its support with a vote as the administrative law process moves forward. Suwannee County has done so, and Alachua County has reversed its decision to challenge the rule change. Gainesville, on the other hand, is preparing but not filing a challenge, concerned about the requirements that could be placed on GRUs permit renewal. It is good if the administrative law judge sees that local governments are in support of the rule, Herd said. The Bradford County Commission voted unanimously to intervene in the rule challenge on behalf of the water management district and Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Local artist speaks to Womans Club BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Womans Club President The Womans Club of Starke welcomed local fiber artist Judy Jull, proprietor of Elza M Studios on Sampson Lake, as its April speaker.

Three new members voted in at the March meeting were recognized and presented with their yearbooks: Cleo Elder, Valeri Moore and Chrissie Owens. The April luncheon menu featured baked spaghetti, Caesar salad and garlic bread sticks with a choice of fruit or chocolate mousse for dessert.

Lu Sanders presided over the punchbowl, welcoming members and guests with cups of frothy pink punch. The club hosted a Strawberry Caf at the Bradford County Strawberry Festival on April 12-13.

(See related story.) When you share a story (about cancer), it makes an impact, whether youve gone through it, youve survived it, youve lost someone or youre caring for someone, Cleesen said. It makes a big difference. There was a time when Cleesen didnt share with others what she had gone through and was currently going through.

The theme is: Walking for a Cure on Hope Island. Were just imagining the BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer American Cancer Society statistics show that the cancer death rate for men and women combined decreased by 20 percent from 1991 through 2010. Good news, to be sure, but according to Cancer Statistics 2014, which was published in the American Cancer Society journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, it is estimated that 585,720 people in the U.S. will die from cancer in 2014. It is estimated that 1,665,540 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2014. What the numbers show is that even though there is hope for those who are diagnosed with cancer, cancer is still a prevalent disease that claims a lot of lives. The quest for a cure continues, and it is that end goal that keeps people walking around the Bradford High School track throughout the night during the annual Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Laura Cleesen of Starke has been told she cant finish the fight and become cancer free, but that does not make her any less of a fighter. I may have bad days, but Im going to be here as long as I can, Cleesen said. As I say to everybody, I may not win the war, but Im going to win every battle until that point. Thats just my mindset. Cleesen has battled through two bouts of breast cancer and an occurrence of uterine cancer. In March 2013, the discovery of a small lump on the back of her neck led to a diagnosis of nonHodgkin lymphoma. Doctors have told Cleesen she will never again hear the words, Youre cancer free. The cancer is spreading throughout her body, but that hasnt stopped Cleesen from wearing a smile on her face, putting her best foot forward and trying to be an encouragement an encouragement to her family, friends and even those who dont know her.

Auto Accidents Work Injuries Headaches Neck and Back PainBack & Neck Pain Clinic Jo es Tires 13761 South US 301 Starke(1/2 mile south of walmart) 964-(8473) led to her first-ever involvement with the American Cancer Society fundraiser. Cleesen was asked to give a survivors speech at this years kickoff party. It was very hard to give that speech because I was never open, Cleesen said, adding, When it was done, I knew I made an impact on some people. They told me it helped them to realize things. If I can do that, then Im accomplishing something. With this Relay, if I can reach out and just help one person through it emotionally, then I know that Im doing OK. Cleesen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. It was a shock, of course. Cleesen said the diagnosis left her wanting to crawl in a hole, but at the same time, she didnt want to let the disease slow her down. Her approach to chemotherapy, for example, was to undergo treatment on Fridays so she could rest on weekends, be green on Mondays and then be able to go to work on Tuesdays. In fact, she told her boss that if she ever called in sick, he was to give her a hard time about it and not to ever let her give up. I was bound and determined I was going to continue working, Cleesen said. Cleesen, though, because of that determination, was holding all of her emotions in check. When the chemotherapy caused her hair to start falling out, she called her boss to say she wouldnt be in to work that day. Her boss response was to go pick Cleesen up, take her to her office and give her the OK to have the emotional outburst she was needing. He physically came and got me, put me in his carin my pajamastook me to my office, shut the blinds in my office, shut the door and looked at me and said, Just cry. You havent cried. You just keep going like everythings OK. I let it go. I just let it out. Then he took me home, and I CLEESEN Continued from 1B was OK. Cleesen said eventually hearing those words, Youre cancer free, was a blessing, but she would later be diagnosed with breast cancer again. She wanted to have a double mastectomy done, but doctors advised against that, saying that the surgery was too risky due to the fact Cleesen has an enlarged heart due to cardiomyopathy. It turned out to be a true definition of a catch 22. Having a double mastectomy was a risk, but not having it was a bit of a risk as well. In March 2012, Cleesen was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She said it was the result of cancerous breast tissue. At first, Cleesen didnt suspect the return of cancer. She has diverticulitis and suspected that was what was causing her stomach to swell. I kept getting bigger and bigger in that area, Cleesen said. I actually looked like I was pregnant. As it turned out, Cleesen had three tumors the size of baseballs in her uterus. It was one of those here-wego-again moments, but Cleesen said she thought of how many other ways she had been blessed in life and decided there was nothing to do but keep fighting. That mindset was severely tested a short time later with the discovery of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Cleesen had large, cancerous masses on her neck and on the lymph nodes in her throat. She also had a 6.2-centimeter mass under her tongue toward where her tonsils wouldve been. She had all the masses surgically removed with the exception of the one under her tongue. Cleesen said shes not taking a chance getting that removed because she doesnt want to lose the ability to be able to talk to her two grandchildren. Family has kept Cleesen going, whether its grandchildren Courtni and Camden, children Mark, Amber, Larry and Ashley, future son-in-law Ross or her husband of more than 20 years, Lawrence. She recalled how a doctor told her she wouldnt be around to see the high school graduation of her daughter Amber. Well, Amber, who is 20, has since graduated. If Cleesen has her way, shell be around to see 15-year-old Ashley graduate. However, she has no control over the future. She just focuses her energies on each day as it comes around. You know how people say, Dont count the days, make the days count? Thats basically what I do, Cleesen said. I just enjoy every day. I have my kids, my grandkids, my husband and my friends. Basically, I just pour my heart into all of that. I cant worry about tomorrow because its not here yet. I just live every day. There are bad days, of course. Cleesen said there are some days she doesnt want to get up out of bed. She thinks of others, though, and says to herself that even though her problems may look bad, there is someone out there with worse problems. Ive got to get up, Cleesen BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer A special recognition of Jerry Whitehead and the dedication of a new monument area devoted to fallen Bradford County lawenforcement personnel will highlight this years BradfordUnion Law-Enforcement Memorial Service, which will be hosted this year by the Starke Police Department on Thursday, May 1, at 6:30 p.m. at the Starke Square (538 E. Call St.) between S.R. 100 and S.R. 230. The annual service pays tribute to the officers who gave their lives during service to their respective areas: six in Union County and 19 in Bradford County. Starke Police Capt. Barry Warren said attending the service is a great way for people to express their thanks to those who did so much for the place they call home. Basically, these are the people who made our community as safe as it is today, Warren said. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead, Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith and Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson will pay tribute to Jerry Whitehead, who died Dec. 18, 2013, after a brief illness. He was the longestserving sheriff in the state, having been elected in 1984 and serving up until the time of his death. Its a great opportunity to recognize him, Warren said. Also planned is the official dedication of a monument area to the 19 Bradford County lawenforcement officers who gave their lives in service. The area, which will include 13 benches, consists of a memorial stone placed in honor of each officer as well as 18 palm trees planted in their memories. (One tree represents both father and son George W. Epperson and Henry W. Epperson, who were both former sheriffs.) Warren said the idea for such a physical memorial has been in the works for approximately 10 years. Thanks to the support of donors in the community, the idea has become a realitya reality that has been overdue, Warren said, pointing out that the first officer killed in the line of duty was Dec. 25, 1885, while the last was July 26, 1995. Its time, Warren said. Its beyond time for these people who served their last call in service to this community. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead will perform the roll call for those who gave their lives in service to Union County: Union deputies Hal Croft (May 23, 1961) and Ronald Jackson (May 23, 1961), Department of Corrections officers Paul Jordan (Jan. 24, 1976) and John S. Dennard (May 5, 1983), Union deputy Renee D. Azure (Aug. 6, 2002) and Department of Corrections officer Adam Sanderson (March 6, 2009). Bradford County Sheriffs Department Capt. Brad Smith and Lawtey Correctional Institution Warden Barry Reddish will perform the roll call for Bradford Countys fallen officers: sheriffs George W. Epperson (Dec. 25, 1885), Henry W. Epperson (Jan. 20, 1890) and David Levy Alvarez (May 30, 1891), Bradford deputy Andrew J. Kite (Feb. 21, 1899), Starke Marshall Jeff Jones (Nov. 19, 1903), sheriffs Everett E. Johns (Dec. 6, 1905), Joe A. Bennett (Aug. 9, 1907) and J.W. Langford (Aug. 23, 1912), Bradford deputy W.T. Andrews (Feb. 1, 1914), Constable Richard Bennett (March 30, 1925), Starke officer Leonard E. Colson (Dec. 26, 1951), Florida State Prison Assistant Superintendent James G. Godwin (April 4, 1955), Starke officer William Burtis Jackson (April 20, 1956), Department of Corrections officers Howard D. Starling (July 2, 1964), Julie Gabor Caddell (Sept. 22, 1974) and Richard Burke (Ot. 12, 1980), Bradford deputy Hesley Delmar Griffis (May 13, 1992) and Department of Corrections officer Jerome A. Williams (July 26, 1995). Starke to host Bradford-Union Law-Enforcement Memorial May 1 said. I cant feel sorry for myself, and I dont like people to feel sorry for me. I dont want sympathy. Sympathy, no, but support is another matter. Cleesen said it really means a lot to open an email, for example, and read, Good morning, beautiful, or, How are you today? What cancer patients need, more than anything, is support, Cleesen said. With that in mind, Cleesen tries to put on a smile every day and do what she can to be an encouragement to others. Thats why shes looking forward to Relay for Life. She wants to have that positive impact on people who have cancer, even though she, too, has the disease. Theres a reason why Im still here, Cleesen said. Thats the way I look at it. Theres a reason why this happened to me. Theres a reason why Im still fighting, and Ill continue to fight. Laura Cleesen (center) is surrounded by (clockwise from top) son Larry, husband Lawrence, daughter Ashley, granddaughter Courtni and daughter Amber. Not pictured: son Mark and grandson Camden.

Bankat 6 p.m. at the track. Then, once the Relay begins with an opening ceremony that will feature Amber ONeal performing the national anthem, survivors and their caregivers will walk the first lap. Once those survivors get on the track, theres usually not a dry eye, Lee said. Another emotional moment is the luminaria ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at 9:30 p.m. The ceremony consists of paper bags, containing lighted votive candles, placed around the track, bearing the names of survivors, those who are currently battling cancer or those who have lost their lives to cancer. The track stadium lighting will be turned off so that only the glow of the candles is visible as the names of those the bags represent are read aloud. The rest of the event will consist of various themed laps (Mardis Gras, pajamas, hula hoop, super hero, etc.), a scavenger hunt, a Zumba class, a Miss-ter Relay contest, a dance competition and other fun activities, as well as musical performances by Melissa Mann, Shelby Clark, Jessica Thornton and Lindsey Murphy. You also do not have to be a member of a team or a survivor/ caregiver to attend. People are encouraged to show up because there will be several fundraisers going on at the Relay. Many teams will be serving up delicious items, including such fare as fruit kabobs, boiled peanuts, cotton candy, Teriyaki wings and chicken and rice. The Community State Bank team will even be roasting a whole pig. If you go out and eat on Friday night, come down to the track and eat with us, Lee said. As of April 17, 38 fundraising teams (178 participants) had registered to take part in Relay for Life. Though fundraising takes place at the event, it is really a yearlong effort. Thats why teams had already raised $31,000 as of April 17. Community State Bank, for example, had raised more than $5,000 with its Pua the Purple Pig campaign, while D. Mosley Trucking, which joined the cause for the first time a few weeks prior to last years Relay, hosted a golf tournament that raised $4,500. Every year, Maria Stephenson raises the most money as an individual, and this year looks to be no different. As of April 15, she had raised $4,087. The fundraising effort doesnt begin and end with Relay for Life, which ties in with the American Cancer Societys mission this yearFinish the Fight. What that means is we want to encourage everyone who is raising funds for this to finish the fight through Aug. 31 when our fiscal year ends, Lee said. A lot of people think the fundraising ends at the event, but it doesnt. We go on. Last years Relay for Life and various fundraisers raised approximately $72,000, with approximately $9,000 being raised solely at Relay for Life. Both totals were record numbers, and the goal is to do even better this year. Lee said this years total fundraising goal is $90,000. Participating in Relay for Life and raising funds for the American Cancer Society is near and dear to Lees heart. Lee, who lost her mother to lung cancer in 1999, said many people with cancer are not benefiting from the various services and programs the American Cancer Society makes available. The one thing I have found is a lot of people who have been diagnosed with cancer are not aware of the American Cancer Society, Lee said. This will mark Lees sixth year of involvement with Relay for Life. Her fifth year, when she served as team development chair, had one especially memorable moment. Lee was contacted by a woman who had heard about Relay and was seeking more information about it. The two communicated back and forth before Lee met the lady in person at the event. After the event, the woman told Lee she had a wonderful time and said, You dont know how that changed my life. I was homebound. I was just giving up. I wasnt getting out. Its just completely changed my life. Moments like that are what make participation in Relay for Life so special. If you dont touch but one person, its worth it, Lee said.

Wear, show off purple Friday, April 25 The city of Starke has issued a proclamation to Paint the Town Purple on Friday, April 25, in support of the BradfordKeystone Heights Relay for Life, which will take place from 7 p.m. on April 25 until 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 26. To show your support in the fight against cancer, wear purple, hang a purple wreath, display purple bows or find other creative ways to show your purple spirit. Dear Editor: Justice Joseph Story stated in his Commentaries on the Constitution 3: 1833 the truth that, The militia is the natural defence of a free country against (1) sudden foreign invasions, (2) domestic insurrections, and (2) domestic usurpations of power by rulers. The Bundy Ranch Standoff is an example of #3 above. This is where the IAP stands in this fiasco? We stand with Cliven Bundy, who said: I dont recognize them (the federal government) having any jurisdiction or authority over this land. In the United States the people are the government; their united voice is the only sovereign that should rule, and only power that should be obeyed. The fact that a desert tortoise is endangered doesnt change this fact. The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) usurpation in forcing the Bundys to pay for land that has been in his family for 140 years doesnt change this fact. For those of us who still labor under the conviction that the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, it must be observed that the only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations. Thats it! All other law enforcement matters are the purview of the individual states, according to the Tenth Amendment. Unfortunately, for most of the Twentieth Century the federal government has demanded more and more power and authority that it does not constitutionally possess. And, for the most part, the individual states have sheepishly done little to resist, not to mention (in this case) County law enforcement. All of which has led to the events that are now playing out in Clark County, Nevada.

Sounds like you are saying the people were wrong. You bring up Mr. John, who has been gone for five years. I say let them rest in peace. If you will give Brad a chance the people wilt see that he will take care of them. A true southern gentleman would let them rest in peace so their family can have closure. So let me remind you its called a democracy, not the good o! boy system and a real man would know the difference. Willum Sullivan Let him rest in peace Dear Editor: Greetings from the hills and hollows of wild wonderful West Virginia. Just wanted to take a minute to express an opinion and offer a compliment to the folks of Bradford County. Ive been coming down you folks way for more than forty years and I intended to write this letter last year but like most other of my good intentions, I procrastinated, got busy and it got away from me. So I will do it now while Im thinking about it. With all due respect, I believe you folks are blessed in many ways. To name a few, the people I know and run into around the ball fields, neighborhoods and generally out and about are good, honest, hard workin, straight shootin, friendly, country lovin, god fearin solid BC children show hope for future Independent American Party issues statement on ranch standoff Davidians in Texas, and I did not speak out; then, they came for the Cliven Bundy family in Nevada, and I did not speak out; then, they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out. Independent American Party citizens. Your children are mannerly and respectful. Its not like that everywhere you go. I think one of the reasons you are blessed is because you work at it. Over the years Ive had the great pleasure and opportunity to watch many of your children grow through t-ball/little league to high school JV and Varsity teams. I have great respect for the parents, the coaches and all the others that work long and hard to make this happen for the children. I especially wanted to send my love, respect and best wishes to the boys and girls on the Bradford County High School Tornado baseball and softball teams. I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and know you and watch you compete and excel with great success on and off the field. Thanks for the memories!! To the folks that havent seen the teams play and compete, I would highly recommend it. As Tony the Tiger says, theyre great, and its money well spent. In closing I would say, that to some of us it appears that the direction our country is taking is worrisome at best and frightening at worst but I take some comfort and optimism when I see and meet some of your children. Raising them up respectful and with the values that made this country a great country reflects greatly on you. Thank you....and thank you for listening to an old man ramble... May god bless and keep you and the children safe. May God Bless America...

Williston would go up 5-0 before hanging on for a 7-6 win. Rogers and Worrell batted 2-for-3 and 2-for-2, respectively, while freshman Seth Hendricks went 2-for-3 to help Union rally. The Tigers had the tying run on third base in the last inning, but Dukes said the Williston shortstop made a great play on a ball that wouldve normally been a hit in most cases. The Tigers responded to the loss by winning all 10 of their remaining games, including a 6-5 win over Williston. That second matchup against Williston saw Union take a 6-0 lead into the seventh, but an approximately 30-minute injury timeout after two Williston outfielders collided seemed to take something away from his team, Dukes said. Williston scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh, but Lovelace entered the game and did a good job on the mound, Dukes said. Lovelace forced the Devils to hit a couple of ground balls before Williston hit a dribbler back to the mound for what would be the games final out. Worrell started the game, giving up one hit and striking out five in five innings. At the plate, Joyner was 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Lovelace was 2-for-4 with an RBI. After avenging their only loss, the Tigers won their final five games by an average score of 14-3. They defeated Interlachen 7-4, Bell 10-5, St. Francis 25-0, Hamilton County 9-7 and Dixie County 17-1. In the season finale against Dixie, Rogers and Joyner were 4-for-4 and 4-for-5, respectively, while sophomore Garrett Williams was 3-for-4. Worrell was 2-for-2, while Driggers and sophomore Dalton Teston were each 2-for-3. Also contributing to the best season Dukes can ever remember were sophomore Kyle Davis and freshmen Matthew Jobin, Stephen Milner, Garrett Ritch, Jarrett Shadd and Dylan Thornton. There were not many games that all 14 did not in some way contribute, Dukes said. The Tigers also excelled in the classroom, with each player maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA. Half the team had weighted GPAs of 4.0 or higher. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a season to be remembered and a good sign for the future of Union County High School baseball as the junior varsity team went 12-1, with its lone loss coming by one run against Williston. Our varsity program certainly has some promise, Union head coach Bret Dukes said. The Tigers scored an average of 11 runs per game, while allowing an average of just four per game. Their last gamea 17-1 win over Dixie County was a good way to put the icing on the cake of an unbelievable season, Dukes said. Offensively, sophomore Willie Rogers and freshman Phillip Joyner provided a spark, batting .520 and .470, respectively, in the lead-off position and numbertwo positions. Hitting and getting on base is almost contagious, Dukes said. Though Rogers and Joyner led the team, Dukes said it was hard to really single out any player from the rest of the lineup, which batted a cumulative .360. We were so consistent in our lineup, Dukes said. It did not matter who was coming up. You had confidence the kid was going to get it done. Dukes said the Tigers had several players who could throw strikes, including freshman Taz Worrell, who led the team. Worrell went 4-0 and had a 2.30 ERA. Dukes, though, singled out freshman J.C. Lovelace for providing consistency as one of several middle relievers as well as sophomore Casey Driggers, who got in a zone the last couple of weeks of the season and pitched lights out. The Tigers opened the season by defeating Interlachen 10-5 and followed that with a 6-3 win over. In their third game, however, the Tigers got off to a slow start and committed six errors in the first two innings. Visiting The recent large bass caught in Kingsley Lake have created a lot of talk among local fishermen. This is the second year in a row that 14-plus-pound bass have been caught in Kingsley. In 2013, Len Andrews pulled into a dock on the western bank of the lake and weighed one that went over 14 pounds. Afterward, he released the fish unharmed. This year, two fish over 14 pounds have been landed, weighed and released. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission accepted the 14-pound, 9-ounce bass that Brooks Morrell caught, placing him at the top of the FWC Trophy Catch Program. Brooks indicated that he has landed nine bass over 9 pounds, four over 10 pounds and two over 13 poundsall in Kingsley Lake. He is also aware of three others that have been caught that were over 13 pounds. Kingsley Lake is no stranger to large bass. In 1967, Benny Zoltoski was trolling around Kingsley with two bass in his livewell that weighed about 10 pounds each. However, when he passed what was then Kingsley Beach and headed to the Officers Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 5B Fins, Fur & Tails and present Club at Camp Blanding, he had a huge hit, which he thought was a hang-up, until the line-water intersection began to move outward, indicating that the hook was moving toward the surface. Making a long story short, it was not a hang-up, but a 16-pound, 6-ounce bass that was eventually mounted, hanging on the wall of Stricklands Store for years. The history of big bass in North Central Florida does not center entirely around Kingsley Lake, however. Buddy Wright, a current resident of Keystone Heights who has always fished from a 12-foot jon boat and has never fished in a bass tournament, was having a good day on the St. Johns River south of Palatka in April 1987. He had a couple of nice catches under his belt that weighed over 5 pounds each. His last catch of the day caught on a Bill Norman Weed Walker lurewas a monster that weighed in at 18 pounds, 13 ounces. Unfortunately, the fish lost a lot of roe before its first weight on a certified, accurate scale. The fish was subsequently frozen and thawed out for another certified weight. However, the FWC would not recognize the fish because a wildlife officer did not get to Wrights home until two weeks after notification and after the fish was frozen, thus depriving Wright of a Florida record. All was not lost, though, because the International Game Fish Association did recognize the catch as a world record for a 16-pound-line weight catch, and Wright has that plaque on his wall beside the replica. Believe it or not, the largest bass landed in Bradford, Clay or Union counties, according to this research and in recent history, came from Brooklyn Lake in Keystone. In 1966, Forest and Stream magazine, which later became Field and Stream, published an article about an 18-pound, 2-ounce bass caught by Hugh Paul. Though there have been larger bass caught, the gold standard for record largemouth bass is still the 1932 George Perry bass that weighed 22 pounds, 4 ounces, with a 32.5-inch length and 28.5-inch girth. Manabu Kurita caught a 22-pound, 4.97-ounce bass in Japan on July 2, 2009. (Despite bettering the Perry bass by almost an ounce, IGFA rules consider the catch a tie with the Perry bass.) In 2006, Mac Weakley foul hooked and landed a 25-pound, 0.01-ounce bass that was photographed, weighed and released. Paul Nosca has done a significant amount of research on the 25 largest bass ever caught, and he makes several good observations about record largemouth bass. Many of the larger Florida bass have been very long and comparatively light in weight. Bill Whipple caught what is considered to be the world record longest bass in 2002 on Lake Toho. The bass was 33 inches in length, but weighed only 14 pounds and 6 ounces. Certainly bass caught in the spawn and full of roe would have a significant weight advantage over fish caught while not spawning. Noscas research on the largest 25 bass ever caught can be found online under his name. Fishing outlook Despite some reports to the contrary, especially on Newnans Lake, the specks should be moving to deeper water as they finish their spring spawn. Shellcrackers and bluegills should be swapping places with the specks as they prepare for their first spawn. The initial spawn for the shellcrackers will be their primary bedding season for the year, while the bluegills will bed continuously throughout the summer, especially around full and new moons. The big fish and comprehensive weights at the local tournaments have shown a little decline, which would suggest that the bass spawn is beginning to wane somewhat. It might show a brief spark after the traditionally cool Easter, but this yearly phenomena will also soon begin to close ranks. When that occurs, the quest for bream and bass will begin to compete equally for the remainder of the summer. The better part of the sheepshead spawn on both inshore coasts, but the stripped and toothy creatures will continue to hang out around the rocks, oyster bars and bridges over the summer. As the coastal waters warm, pompano and whiting will take up residence on the beaches, and the kings will move in to the beaches in time for the big kingfish tournaments on the east coast. Local tourney results The results of the April 16 Bald Eagle Bass Tournament are: Drew Carroll and Chris Hollingsworth in first, Chris Kadlec and Glenn Barnes in second, Wayne Geiger and Zach Smith in third and Ryan Gonzales with the big fish. The results of the April 17 Sampson Lake Tournament are: Braden Gray and Cason Noles in first, Ronny Pruitt and Matthew Elixson in second and Elixson with the big fish.

When questioned about stacking peanuts he replied, Anyone who grew up in rural Georgia in the 1950s can tell you what that means! He inherited his love of conversing with others from his mother.

Eiserman told the deputy he backed into a car on the other side of a gas pump, but was acting very nervous and stuttering and shaking when he was getting out his drivers license. The deputy asked him to get his registration from the vehicle while he interviewed the owner of the car Eiserman hit. Instead of getting his registration, Eiserman went behind Hungry Howies and jumped in a vehicle parked there with an acquaintance of his in it. He then threw what appeared to the deputy to be a bag of marijuana on the drivers side of the floorboard. The deputy had both men exit the vehicle, retrieved the marijuana from the acquaintance and arrested Eiserman. A later search of his vehicle turned up a brown bag with a over 50 grams of marijuana in it and a pill bottle with cocaine. The acquaintance, Joseph James Lacy, 32, of Lake Butler, was also arrested and charged with resisting an officer, possession of marijuana and possession of drugs, using a vehicle to sell or store drugs and public order crime-using two-way device to facilitate a felony After his arrest, Lacy told deputies that Eiserman was on his way from Starke to meet him to make a deal for the marijuana. When Eiserman had the accident at the gas pump, he called Lacy, and Lacy came to the store. Lacy stated that Eiserman went over and gave him the marijuana right before the deputy arrived. When Lacy was ordered out of the vehicle along with Eiserman, he refused several times to place his hands on the vehicle so the deputy could pat him down for weapons. He only did so after the deputy told him he would be tasered if he didnt cooperate. The deputy also found a bag with cocaine in it during his search of Lacy.

and tie the score at 1-1. Gault, who doubled in two of her previous three at-bats, followed with another single that scored Atkinson. I didnt hit it where I wanted it, but, hey, a single will work for me, said Gault, who was 3-for4. Adkins gave up seven hits and five walks, but pitched the Tornadoes out of several jams. P.K. Yonge (21-3) loaded the bases twice, but failed to score in each instance, and also had innings where it failed to score when it had runners in scoring position with one out. Of Adkins 10 strikeouts, five ended innings. We always say its one versus ninenine players against that one batter, Gault said, but (Adkins) really held us in this game. She worked her heart out. She pitched great. For her part, Adkins said, I just knew I had to focus and concentrate on our main goal, which was to not let them score hardly any runs so we could have a chance to win this game. Gault got the Tornadoes off to a good start when she doubled to lead off the game. However, P.K. Yonge pitcher Kalen McGill retired three straight batters to leave Gault stranded on third. Two hits and a walk loaded the bases for P.K. Yonge with just one out in the bottom of the inning. A baserunning miscue by the Blue Wave afer a forceout at home allowed Bradford to get out of the inning without surrendering a run. P.K. Yonge put two on with no outs in the second, but Adkins recorded two strikeouts as well as holding the two base runners in place after fielding a bunt before throwing to first for an out. Adkins recorded her fifth strikeout of the game to end the third inning after the Blue Wave loaded the bases with two outs. (Adkins) always gives great effort and shines every time she goes on the mound, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Mackenzie Gault capped a three-hit night with a single that scored what would prove to be the winning run in the Bradford High School softball teams 2-1 win over P.K. Yonge in the District 5-4A championship game on April 17 in Alachua. It was the second straight district championship for the Tornadoes (18-7), who played District 6 runner-up South Sumter in a regional quarterfinal game on April 23. Bradford, the tournaments second seed, had lost its previous two matchups with top seed P.K. Yonge by one run each. Its an indescribable feeling, pitcher Ashton Adkins said. Its amazing just knowing that weve struggled with them the past two times. This win meant so much to me and my team. Its just tremendous. The Tornadoes had three hits entering the top of the seventh, but lead-off batter Annie Luke hit a single, while a throwing error on Jaci Atkinsons ground ball to the shortstop gave Bradford two on with no outs. After P.K. Yonge recorded the innings first out, Lindsey Wiggins hit a hard single up the middle to score courtesy runner Taylor Crawford Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 11B Bradford and Union County extended their seasons and will play for the championships in their respective district tournaments, while Keystone Heights saw its season come to an end in its district semifinals.
