CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Lawtey Police Department shared glad tidings of great joy via Facebook Friday night, announcing that a baby had been born on the steps of city hall. Police Capt. Nathan Blom arrived at city hall around 8 p.m. May 16 and found a man and his wife on the wood porch in front of the building. The couple was from out of town and traveling to a Jacksonville hospital for the birth when they had to pull over for help. The labor had progressed too far and the baby was on its way. The husband, in the middle of an emergency call, was relieved to have an officer on the scene, but as the police department noted, Bloms forte is writing tickets, not delivering infants. Hoping to find assistance around the corner, Blom ran to the fire department, but found no one. The EMS unit stationed there was out on call. Then Barron Warner arrived, and just in time, too. Warner, a volunteer firefighter and certified emergency medical technician lives nearby and heard dispatch proclaim the emergency. In minutes, he was on hand to hear the father exclaim, The baby is here! But all was not well. The childs umbilical cord was wrapped around its neck. Warners training proved lifesaving in the childs delivery. According to the police department, both the new baby boy and Capt. Blom were in tears. I saw the joy on their (the parents) face and its just amazing. I am just glad I was able to help them. Warner told WCJB. Us fire, EMS, police, we see a lot of bad. Its very rare that we get to see the good in things. For that to happen, its a great reminder, and I am sure everybody can agree, its a great reminder of why we love doing what were doing. Warners father, Fire Chief Kenny Warner, arrived and expressed his pride. Thats my boy! he said. Pedestrian killed by trainBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A woman from a local living assistance facility died tragically Sunday morning when she was hit by a train. Starke police announced Monday that 69-year-old Nancy Cannon Gay was the victim. The police department was dispatched to the scene around 6:30 a.m. May 18 on the report that a pedestrian was struck by a train. It wasnt long before they discovered the victims body near the Jackson Street crossing. The northbound train was stalled on the eastern track. Gay was a resident at Parkside Assisted Living Facility, located a block away from the CSX line on North Church Street. According to what police have learned during their investigation, Gay slipped out of Parkside around 5:50 a.m., but they dont know why or where she might have been going. The investigation continues with the help of CSX Corporation. Gay had lived at the facility since 2009.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Conflict over annexation was virtually over by the time representatives from the Starke City Commission and Bradford County Commission sat down this month for a conflict resolution meeting. The county called the meeting after Starke annexed the site of a future commercial development even though it was not contiguous to the city, and the move drew attention to prior city annexation activity that was equally problematic. When it received the countys letter, Starke was already taking steps to reverse the annexation of the Badcock property as well as the 301 corridor out to Walmart and one more commercial property along the corridor. Because the city was set to begin contraction of the city limits this month, there was little to resolve, except the manner in which the two bodies will work together in the future. Mayor Carolyn Spooner was opposed to the tone of the conflict resolution letter sent by the county. She said Starke wasnt refusing to hear what the county had to say about annexation, but the two boards never met to discuss the matter. That should have happened before an impasse was declared and the county jumped to conflict resolution, she said. From the countys perspective, the city was not listening to its concerns, moving forward with the latest annexation even after city and county officials sat down at the sheriffs office to discuss its legality, and against the advice of the North Florida Regional Planning Council, whose position was misrepresented when the board voted on the annexation. The countys attorney, Will Sexton, said the meeting at the sheriffs office was the countys attempt to resolve the issue quietly. I left that meeting with the impression that the city understood our concerns, he said. The next thing we heard is that you had adopted the ordinance. Spooner said she shared the sentiments expressed by Riddick in past weeks about the city and county working together, but said rather than extend an olive branch as was mentioned at a county commission meeting, she was extending her hand across the table, and the rest of the city commission felt the same way. We are too small a community not to work together, she said, adding that what affects the city impacts the county, and vice versa. Riddick said that since he spoke out in April, many have approached him saying its about time the city and county work together. Working together and seeing eye to eye are not necessarily the same thing, however. When Riddick mentioned his desire to seek Starkes building and zoning brought back under the countys umbrella, the idea received a cold shoulder from the officials present. In fact, the city continues to work on the reestablishment of its own building and zoning department, contemplating whether to staff the office full or part time. The county commission will officially declare the conflict over annexation resolved by resolution once the citys boundary contraction ordinances have been finalized next month. Tipping fees going upBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Commissioners from the three counties who make up the New River Solid Waste Association say they want to wean their governments off of the revenue they receive from the landfilleventually. They determined this year was too soon to cut their individual budgets, so the counties have a year longer to prepare. The money the counties receive in 2015, however, will once again be limited to revenue from tipping fees or unanticipated revenue and not money already set aside for future projects. Member counties partaking of landfill revenue is not new. Each has received several hundred thousand dollars annually in dividends from their operation of New River. Union County even gets an additional $100,000 for agreeing to host the landfill site. At one point, the landfills largest contractual revenue source, Alachua County, pointed out that the member counties get more out of the landfill than they contribute. In the 2014 budget, fees to the counties were set at $1,090,000, but in-region revenue from those counties was projected to be just over $1 million. Alachua, by contrastwhich does dispose of far more wastewas paying $5.2 million. The New River Solid Waste Association was criticized in its 2013 audit when the counties dipped into reserve funding for additional revenue to fund their own budgets. That money had been set aside for the future care of the landfillan obligation the counties can plan for now or burden future generations with long after the landfill has closed and ceased turning a profit. Plus there are plenty of projects between now and then that need to be funded, as Executive Director Darrell ONeal pointed out at the top of the May 8 budget workshop. ONeal said given future obligations, host fees are going to have to come down, and commissioners understood. In the future, ONeal said he sees the counties splitting unanticipated revenue versus building dividend payments into the budget. Union Commissioner Karen Cossey said the counties have to learn to stand on their own without the landfills financial support. Bradford Commissioner Doyle Thomas said he would recommend cutting the host fees in half in the 2016 budget, or support eliminating them entirely with the rest of the boards support. I think we all know we have to do away with it, Baker Commissioner Mark Hartley said. Theres no need in us putting our counties at risk down the road, Thomas said. The budget for 2015, approved May 8, includes $790,000 for the member counties$330,000 each, plus $100,000 more for Union County. The new budget also includes a $2 per ton increase in tipping feesthe first increase in 18 yearswhich will raise an additional $84,000. That is expected to grow to $34 a ton by 2017 and $46 a ton by 2018 if the contract with Alachua County ends that year. See BUDGET, 6A

Bradford Sheriff Gordon Smith, Justice Coalition Executive Director Ann Dugger, John Rutherford, and Clay Sheriff Rick Beseler.It was a beautiful day for the 6th annual Shoot for Justice on May 9 at WW Sporting Clays on Jacksonvilles Westside. More than 100 people tested their sharp shooting skills at the fundraising event to benefit the Justice Coalition, including Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith, Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter and Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford. The main event is the Sheriffs Shootout and this year was an upset. Columbias Sheriff Hunter took over the title from Sheriff Rutherford of Jacksonville, who had extended the invitation to Hunter to participate. Rutherford had been the reigning champion for the past three years. Duval Ford was the presenting sponsor of the event and Whitley Steel was a Justice Level Sponsor. Participants all received a Shoot for Justice Hat, a commemorative towel, and shells for the shootout. The event was followed by the awards ceremony, which included a fish fry. The event was a big success and raised approximately $25,000 for the Justice Coalition. If you would like to donate to the organization which helps innocent victims of violent crime, just log on to www. justicecoalition.org. Founded in 1995, the Justice Coalition is a grass-roots organization seeking rights for victims in the criminal justice system.Norman running commissionThe following is an announcement of intention to seek public office submitted by the candidate. The final deadline for submissions by county and school board candidates is 5 p.m. on Monday, June 23. To the citizens of Bradford County, I would like to take this opportunity to announce my intent to run for District 2 county commissioner. I am Andy Norman, and I was born and raised in Bradford County. I am married to my wife, Susan, and I have two stepdaughters, Jessica and Jennifer, and a son, Robert. I am employed with Pritchett Trucking as truck supervisor. I am a blue-collar workingman, and I know firsthand the issues that need to be addressed within our county. It would be an honor and a privilege for me to serve the people of Bradford County and know that I can make a difference by listening to your concerns and issues, and acting on them to improve our county.

If elected I will do my best to make sure everyone is heard! Thank you to the Bradford County Telegraph for allowing me to print my letter of intent. Andy Norman BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Have boot drives in Starke become too much of a good thing? The Starke City Commission which typically approves at least one boot drive each meeting and sometimes more than one for a single groupthinks so, and the board is limiting the number an organization can have each year. There will also be a cap on the number of boot drives allowed each month. There are so many requests for boot drives that the city has to verify that there isnt one already scheduled for a requested date before moving forward with approval, and commissioners say the public is weary of this brand of fundraising. Commissioners recalled limiting the number of boot drives in the past, but they couldnt remember what those limits were. The city clerk found that the commission discussed limits, but never put them in writing, and has since approved boot drives without regard to prior discussions. The conversation came up again in April. I think even our local people get tired of boot drives, Commissioner Travis Woods said. They get tired of being stopped every weekend. According to the policy set to be approved May 20, written requests for boot drives with proof on insurance must be made to the city clerks office by the Thursday before the next scheduled commission meeting in order to make the agenda, and requests will be placed on the agenda in the order they are received. Each organization will only be allowed to request two boot drives per year, and alternate rain date requests must be in the same month of the original request. A maximum of two boot drives will be permitted each month. A permit will be issued by the clerk after the commission has voted to approve a boot drive, and the permit must be taken to the police department in order to receive the brightly colored vests that must be worn by boot drive participants. A fee will be assessed if the vests are not returned. No one under 18 will be allowed to enter traffic to collect money, and all minors on the sidewalk must be supervised. Boot drives must take place during daylight hours and may not inhibit the flow of traffic. Harassing vehicles or pedestrians is prohibited. Applicants will be required to sign an acknowledgment of these rules.www.facebook.com/BradfordTelegraph

Most elementary and middle schools in the county joined the event, including private schools. Classrooms from different schools and other organizations set up exhibits and demonstrations of science principles, each overseen by a science teacher assisted by students. This was the fifth year for the event; its first three were held at Starke Elementary and the last two years it has moved to Bradford Middle School to include schools countywide. The event is actually a satellite of the USA Science and Engineering Festival, a federal program, underwritten by LockheedMartin. To begin the evening, the districts McKinney/Vento student advocate Linda Miller slimed Bradford Middle Schools behavioral resource officer, Ray Schaefer. The two then moved on to sliming other willing and eager victims with silly string and multicolored goo. An uncooperative catapult, meant to illustrate physics principles, refused to cooperate and catapulted pans of slime only two feet, leaving elementary students clean as a whistle. No matter, the teachers delivered the goods. Later an announcement was made that a hose and water were available outside for those who wanted to wash the stuff off. The demonstrations were sponsored by schools throughout Bradford County, and by organizations in the community. The BHS Key Club made ice cream while demonstrating principles of freezing; Shands Starke ran a health booth; the Bradford County Health Department emphasized hand washing. Class-sponsored projects included the popular fireworksin-milk table. (Its an explosion of color.) This involves pouring milk into a dinner plate, then adding drops of food coloring. Due to its chemical properties, a drop of liquid dish soap put into the center of the plate fans the food coloring out like fireworks. Superintendent Chad Farnsworth said, Science night is a fun way to promote our science programs, and get parents and students involved. He added that its also a good introduction to science; the fun can lead to more serious learning and discovery throughout students school careers. Miller said the demonstrations are designed for parents to repeat at home with affordable, easy to get materials to help bring out budding scientists in their households. Almost 600 students and parents from around the county attended the event. Dr. Miller, M.A.D., slimed willing members of the crowd.

U.S. Navy Commander Chris Flaherty from the Pentagon paid a visit to the school to speak with students. Commander Flaherty shared with the Brooker students his roots of growing up in a similarly small town with a population of 700 in Cleveland, N.Y. Since his young school days in Cleveland, he played athletics at Duke University while attending college and went on to give 20plus years of service to the Navy, visiting more than 40 countries across the globe. His message focused on dreaming your dream, working hard and maintaining selfdiscipline. He visited every class, and students were offered the opportunity to ask questions. Students were curious about how fast Navy jets could fly, how hard it was to become a pilot and his favorite country to visit. The session wrapped up with a surprise Skype session between Mrs. Boukaris fourth-grade class at Brooker and fourthgraders at Flahertys hometown school, Cleveland Elementary. Brooker Elementary continues to nurture the new relationship with Cleveland Elementary, created via the First a Dream Foundation. Submitted by Patricia Cook.

Thursday, May 22, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. I thought your readers would be interested to know that nematodes can be beneficial for controlling fleas. I am supplying you with a catalogue which provides ordering information. Tommy Clark, Hampton Lake Thank you for sharing this information, Tommy. I researched University of Florida resources and found a wealth of information about using nematodes to control insects. Nematodes are roundworms that are neither segmented, like earthworms, nor flat and slimy like other worms. They are the most abundant animals on the planet. Approximately four out of every five multicellular organisms are nematodes. They can be found in almost every environment on earth, from deserts to polar ice caps. Nematodes sometimes get a bad rap because people think of them as plant and animal parasites. However, less than 1 percent of the million or more nematode species are harmful. Most nematodes feed on bacteria, fungi and other microscopic organisms. Others, however, can be used to kill unwanted insect pests. Several species are mass-produced and sold commercially, like those in the catalogue you shared with me. Nematodes that are beneficial for insect control have an infective state (as larvae) that enters into the insect host through openings in its body or thin areas of the insects exoskeleton. After entry, the nematodes release special bacteria, unique to nematodes, into the insect. The toxins produced by the bacteria kill the insect after only a few days. The infective state nematodes then exit the body in search of other insects to infect. Different types of nematodes are suitable for controlling different types of pests. For fleas, ambusher-type nematodes lie in wait for host insects to move toward them. The nematodes stand on their tails and jump onto the host. Interestingly, the University of Florida source I found on this subject listed various types of weevils, gnats, woodborers, mole crickets and webworms as pests that can be controlled with nematodes. However, it did not list fleas. This is probably because nematode larvae can only live outside, while flea larvae can live indoors as well as in lawns and dirt. So pet owners who keep their pets indoors or indoors and out would probably not get an adequate level of control. You can purchase nematodes from a number of vendors onlinejust google nematodes to control fleas. Keep the nematodes in a cool place until use, and use them as soon as possible. Its best to apply them during early morning or evening, or during a light rain. Water soil before and after applying nematodes. For more information, see http://bit.ly/1vsMFQn. Mary W.

Tipping fees for Alachua and Levy counties will also experience annual CPI increases next year that add a few cents to their tipping fees but more than $195,000 to the landfill budget. The budget gives employees a $1 an hour raise, for an increase of around $85,000 in compensation-related costs. The pay increase applies to everyone except ONeal. Last year, he traded future pay raises for job security in the form of a contract guaranteeing him at least five years. The director presented a $3.1 million equipment replacement schedule with purchases through 2018, beginning with the CAT D6 purchased that night. Engineering costs were down around $363,000 compared to 2014. Even with such reductions, money was taken out of escrow for depreciation in order to balance the budget. Unlike 2014, there was no cash carry forward from the prior budget.

By ALL Buildings require $100 down plus 1st months payment One of the highlights of the Altrusa International District 3 conference was the presentation at the Governors Banquet of the fifth annual Spirit Award to Cheryl Canova of Starke. The Spirit Award is given to an Altrusan who exemplifies the Altrusa spirit at the local and district levels by outstanding involvement in the governors goals through leadership, service projects and membership recruitment. This honor is bestowed on an Altrusan selected by his/her peers at each years conferencepeople who know about this dedication to serving others. Canova served as president of the Starke club for three years. Her vision of a better community has enriched the vision of the membership, providing many new and enhanced opportunities for her club to give back to their community every year. Her club membership has grown tremendously under her leadership, and she is always looking for younger Altrusans to develop into future leaders. She attends every conference, gleaning information to take back to her club, where she motivates them to meet every goal set before them. According to her club members, she is an inspiration to her club and her community, and has earned many honors for her work, including being named a Woman of Distinction in Alachua and Bradford counties. The Spirit Award has been bestowed on several worthy Altrusans since it was created by Past Governor Robin Hall in 2010 because she felt Altrusans that gave above and beyond to their district and communities should be recognized. Cheryl Canova had led Altrusa to growth and greater service. BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The New River Regional Landfill appears to be getting closer to a workable gas-toenergy project. The goal is to turn the methane-rich gas produced by decomposing waste into a profit-making renewable energy project. Alan Beer of Florida Energy Partners walked the board through plans for the project, including how a power plant would be constructed on site to feed electricity to the grid through Clay Electrics lines. The party interested in purchasing the power is Duke Energy. Although there was no power purchase agreement yet, there was a letter of intent to enter into negotiations. That is closer than the landfill has been to selling its gas, which is currently burnt off to comply with air quality standards. Were just burning money out there right now, said Commissioner Doyle Thomas. According to Beer, Duke is interested in increasing its use of renewable energy and is even willing to pay line capacity charges, which gives this project a huge advantage. Any contract would be a minimum of 15 years, although the project would is expected to last beyond 20 years. Two engines would produce four megawatts of power, but the addition of a third generator later on could boost that amount. Beer said the power purchase agreement would include an early termination clause for the landfill, but not for Duke, so the board could pursue a better offer if one comes along, but Duke could not walk away and leave the board without a customer. As long as the plant is producing at least 86 percent of the time, the association would receive full payment. Beer said another factor making Duke an attractive partner is the higher cost of its power when compared to other utilities, and that cost is only expected to rise. FEPs proposal differs from a previous proposal the association was considering because this time the association is investing in constructing the power plant. In order to do so, Executive Director Darrell ONeal said the board could borrow from itself, taking all of the funding set aside for long-term care and using it for the construction of the gasto-energy project. According to information given to the board, $5.8 million is currently set aside for longterm planning. Profits from the gas-to-energy project are anticipated to increase annually from around $406,000 in the first year to nearly $1.6 million for the year 2029. The association would pay itself back with interest from the proceeds, setting aside the money for its long-term planning goals, and enjoy a profit to boot. At the end of this 15 years, well be 100 percent funded without having to add another dime in the account, ONeal said. If figures prove true, the profit will be close to $7.1 million total (minus depreciation) at the end of 15 years, plus more than $9 million for planning. Beer said if the board could still explore what other customers might be out there, but Dukes interest is proof this is a viable project. Theres no reason not to move forward, he said. The board authorized staff to enter into negotiations with FEP for the design-build contract. FEP will work with Duke on the power purchase agreement.

The Art Walk is sponsored by the Melrose All Arts Council. on drugs, stolen propertyThe Union County Sheriffs Office announced another arrest in its ongoing drug sting operation and stolen property investigations. Heather Thornton, 37, of 715 West Main Street in Lake Butler is the latest arrested for illegal narcotic/prescription drug possession/sale and use. Undercover officers and sources purchased large quantities of Suboxone, a Schedule III narcotic. Additionally, the charge also carries a much stiffer penalty since she lives in government housing. Thornton also faces charges of using electronic devices in the drug trade, stemming from using a cellular telephone to conduct this business. She was taken into custody without incident and booked at the Union County Jail and transported to Bradford County. The release stated that investigators recovered over $1,000 of stolen property this past week that had been taken in recent burglaries, and that suspects were also charged and arrested and are currently in the Union County Jail. James Robert Cephus Seay, 39, was charged with grand theft after investigators recovered thousands of dollars in equipment and tools that were sold and pawned by Seay. He was booked in the Union County Jail and has since been released by the judge. Additional charges are now also being filed by Alachua County investigators on Seay for dealing in stolen property. Darin Scott Blackwelder, 26, of Worthington Springs was also arrested on a felony probation violation stemming from a burglary of a residence there where numerous tools and electronics were stolen. Deputies recovered some of the items during a follow-up investigation at Blackwelders residence. He remains in custody.

for Findley. In a 2013 interview with the Telegraph-TimesMonitor, she said the only day of the week shes not in the weight room is Sunday because of church. Most girls dont spend the time in the gym that she does, Griffis said. Thats what separates her from everybody else. That work ethic is important because no one at the meets Findley competes at is pushing her. Shes that much better than everyone else in her weight class and age division. Griffis said because Findley has had no competition, a lot of what she accomplishes at meets comes down to her mental approach. For people, it usually takes somebody pushing them to make them get better, Griffis said. When you dont have anybody pushing you, it makes you kind of lag, but with her, its the opposite. She sees the record, and she wants to go get it. For her part, Findley said, Youve got to find it within world level. People really need to sit up and take notice and really give her the accolades she deserves for what shes done, Union County High School weightlifting coach Bryan Griffis said. How many kids can say, Well, Im going to lift in the worlds, and I stand a chance of setting the world record in my weight class? Whoevers heard of a 17-yearold kid being able to do that? It may be a bigger stage than what shes competed on in the past, but Findley believes she can do well, citing the fact that she has already lifted the world record in the dead lift during her workouts and is close to worldrecord totals in the bench press and back squat. Im pretty excited, Findley said. There isnt any telling what Ill be able to do there. I plan on breaking world records. High goals, to be sure, but Griffis has encouraged Findley to aim high in any goal in life. Dont ever set the bar low for yourself, Griffis said. Set it high. Set it somewhere to where youve got to work to get something. Work has never been an issue BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a typical performance for 17-year-old Union County High School student Kaylee Findley, but typical for her is an outstanding achievement. Findley broke three of her own U.S. powerlifting records in her weight class and age division at the May 11 Southeastern High School State Wars in Columbus, Ga. Not only did Findley break the records in the bench press, dead lift and overall total, but she set a personal record in the back squat as well. I went there with a mindset of what I was going to do, and I accomplished it, said Findley, who will be a UCHS senior next year. I felt very confident going into the meet. And why shouldnt she have felt confident? Her first-ever powerlifting event on July 7, 2013, resulted in her winning the heavyweight class in her age division, setting three records and receiving an invitation to join Team USA. Exactly one year later, Findley will leave for St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, to compete at the spend a lot of time talking about drainage and the handling of rainwater.

Hodges with a strong grounding in the value of hard work, community and faith, which has served him well for all of his 84 years. Born at his family home in Brooker to parents Evan W. and Ruby Mae (Greene), Hodges said he grew up as a typical farm boyplaying ball, fishing with his friends Jack and Doyle Hazen and the Hayes brothers, and staying out of the way of his four sisters. There was plenty of farm work to occupy his time as well, as his father operated a large truck farm. When he was old enough and had learned to drive, his father put him to work transporting farm produce. He remembers one triphis longestto New York City. I drove up there and arrived at night, Hodges said. It was big and bright, and I was ready to come home almost as soon as I got there. Hodges attended Bradford High School, where he remembers Della Rosenberg as one of his best teachers. Later, while working as a bus driver at the school, he remembers providing transportation for some of her classes field trips. This was how he met his future wife, Yvonne Brooks. I have never really figured out why, but Miss Rosenberg seemed to have a serious problem with Yvonne and I seeing each other, Hodges said. She even came right out and told Yvonne not to marry me. The couple married anyway when Yvonne graduated; she was 17, and he was 23. Evidently it turned out to be a better match then their teacher had thought since they had been married for 60 years when Yvonne away last December. Hodges became a traveling salesman for Suntech Paint of Gainesville and traveled over much of the southeast, visiting hardware and paint stores. Yvonne occasionally traveled with him until their first child arrived and she became a stay-athome moma role Hodges was happy for her to play. The growing family moved several times in connection with Hodges work, living, among other places, in Nashville and Jackson, Miss. They always seemed to find their way home, however, and the family retained strong roots in Bradford County. The couple had three children Randall (deceased), Mark (deceased) and Kim (Morgan) who provided them with six grandchildren. Although Hodges said he did really well as a salesman, he wanted to stay closer to home to spend more time with his family. He opened Hodges Building Supply and Paint on SR 100 in the late sixties and settled down to be part of the local community. Hodges was a member of the Starke Rotary Club for many years, serving one year as president. He served as president of the Suwannee River Economic Council in Bradford County for 16 years, from its inception in 1998 until his resignation for health reasons in April of this year. He is a longtime member of the Masonic Lodge in Brooker and attends Trinity Baptist Church in Keystone Heights. Along the way he also found time to serve for 12 years on the Bradford County Commission, from 1972 until 1984. He remembers that the problems considered by that body have not changed much over the years. Roads were always an issue back then. Probably more than today because fewer of them were paved then, Hodges said. Besides roads, we seemed to Growing up on Brooker Farm provided Hodges life valuesE.W.

BY MICKEY AGNER Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor What young adult would not like to start a career that would last a lifetime, pay a good salary and ensure employment?   Additionally if the preparation time for that career started in high school and at the most lasted one year post high school graduation, would that not make it more attractive? Well Christy Reddish, director of the Bradford-Union Technical Center, indicates that she provides that opportunity in the centers licensed practical nursing program and the centers Health Science Academy. The LPN program graduates between 90 and 100 percent of its accepted students. Almost 100 percent of those students who complete all of their program requirements are employed. All of the student requirements can be completed in a years time, and according to LPN.com, the average annual LPN salary in Florida is about $40,000. Additionally, none of the noted positions are in danger of being outsourced, and the health care field is one of the most reliable and employable fields for qualified applicants. Needless to say, Reddish is describing a very attractive health program. More importantly, the accolades for the program do not stop there. The fact that the program lasts only one year does not carry a time factor benefit only. Less time means less expense, and accordingly, the programs yearly expenses will total only slightly over $6,000.   That will be less direct Technical Center LPN program: a great educational opportunityWhile Hodges worked at his business and served the community, Yvonne joined the workforce. After the kids were grown, she wanted something to do, so she became a secretary at Hampton Elementary School, Hodges said. She worked under Principal Lynn Register and was there for about 20 years. A bad fall earlier this year sent Hodges to rehab to strengthen his legs, but he said the prognosis is good and he looks forward to returning to his normal activities soon.

I really love doing it and hope I can get back out there before the grass slows down for the year. Besides mowing, Hodges said he loves country music, preferring the older music to that of today. While he doesnt care for much current television, he said he loves to watch old Western series like Bonanza and Gunsmoke, and that he is a big fan of John Wayne. I enjoy my life, Hodges said.

Bradford Independent was made up of students from such high schools as Buchholz, Orange Park, Clay, Fleming Island and West Nassau, as well as Bradford and Union. Several students from colleges such as Santa Fe, Florida State College at Jacksonville and the University of North Florida were a part of the group as well, rejoining some of their former high school band mates and band directors. There were quite a few participating schools that had no student representation, but supported the group by loaning instruments and providing what resources they could. For example, Keystone Heights and Baker County high schools didnt have any students in the groupat least for this year but those schools directors were willing to do whatever they could to help the effort. Tempest said the directors had the mindset of, I love the idea, and thats something that can help grow music in our area. There are other percussion groups in the state that charge as much as $900 to $2,000 per season, Tempest said. Those groups, he said, also put in a lot more hours of rehearsal time. By relying on a support system of various schools, Bradford Independent was able to charge a participation fee of $600. As for rehearsal time, the group took into account the fact that many of BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It may not have the resources and time commitment of other groups, but Bradford Independent Percussion has talent, which proved itself by earning a thirdplace finish the Independent A class at the March 28-30 Florida Federation of Color Guards Circuit Championships, which were held in Daytona Beach. Bradford High School band director Cody Tempest was the co-director of the Bradford Independent group, which consisted of approximately 40 members from various high schools and colleges, including three students from BHS Hunter Cooper, Logan Gowens and Micah Hulingand one from Union County High SchoolWilliam Brown. Weve combined resources with a lot of local schools and local band programs, Tempest said. Its a kind of rather large activity that a lot of these small schools dont really have the resources or the funds or even the students needed to make one of these groups happen just at the high schools by themselves. Several different schools kind of pitched in and made it work. Tempest said the creation of Bradford Independent was an idea he shared with a friend and fellow classmate at the University of FloridaBuchholz High School instructor Rickie NOTICE OF ENACTMENT OF ORDINANCES BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS BRADFORD COUNTY, FLORIDA NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that proposed ordinances, which titles hereinafter appear, will be consid ered for enactment by the Board of County Commissioners of Bradford County, Florida at a public hearing on Monday, June 2, 2014, at 9:30 a.m., or as soon thereafter as the matters can be heard, at the County Commission Chambers in the North Wing of the Bradford County Courthouse, located at 945 North Temple Avenue, Starke, Florida.

Its a way of exposing advanced band students especially those at smaller, rural-area schoolsto more challenging opportunities that often arent available to them. That comes in the form of getting them together with advanced students from other schools and performing with the best of the best, whether its among fellow Bradford Independent members during practices or among students from throughout the state at competitions. Very often, our more talented students leave (high school) and go unchallenged, Tempest said. Each high school has their own best drummer, and theyre usually the best drummer they know because they dont have the exposure. The idea was, get a lot of this talent together and kind of get them in the same pool challenging each other. That was definitely a goal of ours this year, to challenge our upperlevel students and give them something to work at above and beyond the normal levels that our small high school programs can offer them. its participating students had jobs they had to be at or were involved in their churches on Sundays. The Bradford group practiced 10-12 hours on Saturdays only, whereas a lot of other groups practice on multiple days. Still, the Bradford group made an impression in early season competitions. We had a really high level of talent among our students that we were pulling from, Tempest said. However, during midseason, other groups began overtaking Bradford at competitions as their extra hours of rehearsal time started to show. Plus, there was a three-week stretch of competitions that prevented the group from rehearsing at all, Tempest said. They may not have devoted as much time in rehearsals as other groups, but the Bradford Independent members certainly worked hard to do as well as they could. They were really pushing themselves and pushing each other within the constraints that we had to really reach and achieve as much as possible, Tempest said. What it eventually resulted in was a noteworthy showing at the FFCC Championships. Definitely, if we were at the commitment level some of these other groups were atfinancially or timewise we couldve been a lot more successful with the season, BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If a classroom has a shortage of textbooks and no funds to purchase more, students can share books. A schools band program has no such option if there is a shortage of instruments. The difference is two people cant share a trumpet, Bradford High School band director Cody Tempest said. Tempest, who is in his second year at BHS, is calling on the community to help support the program. If anyone has instruments they arent using whether its a former high school band student who has his or her instrument sitting in a closet or attic, or a professional player who no longer has need of a certain instrumentthey are encouraged to consider donating it to BHS. The band program has already received donations from several ex-military musicians. Such a donation would go a long way in helping Tempest build the band program back up to the level it was at in the 1970s and 1980s. Tempest said the BHS band consisted of as many as 150 kids those years. Its doable here, he said. However, the program doesnt currently have the number of instruments to support such a large program. Tempest said when he took over as director, the program had a lot of instruments that that had a cumulative total of $150,000-plus worth of damage. A lot of the programs budget goes toward instrument repair, but it only amounts to chipping away slowly at a large amount, Tempest said. Tempest spends quite a bit of time attempting to fix what he can on instruments, which ensures that the instruments stay in the classroom. If sent away for repairs, a student could be without an instrument for up to two weeks. Thats why Tempest is asking on the community to help out. He pointed out that the band program has already benefited greatly, with parents and community members gladly volunteering their efforts. The community is been so supportive, Tempest said.

Dear Editor: So very often we exercise the freedoms that we take for granted. Freedom of speech: to say anything and everything we want without somebody in authority telling us we cant. The remarks can be so vile and distasteful that we wonder how a person can get away with it. It is given to us by the constitution under the Bill of Rights. You and I know it as the First AmendmentWe really take this one for granted as we do the fourth amendment. That one says that we can gang up anywhere and anytime and gang up with the Second Amendment and give the devil or anybody as much hell as we care to without fear of reprisal from the government. Now how much of this do you and I take for granted? Probably all of it! At first we would want to call that stupid and in a way it is. If one loses sight of the fact that its a God given right handed down to us by way of the US Constitutions Bill of Rights. Well, you say, the First Amendment and the Fourth Amendment give me those rights. If you think it ends there you really have your head up the wrong place. Let me give you something to think about because you are not thinking yet. If it were not for the SECOND Amendment we wouldnt have anything except an overly dominating government. Dont tell me its not possible. All you have to do is look around the world at all of the government controlled countries. Every day we are waging wars to keep the government that we have. I think that the NRA is leading the fight to make sure that we have a Second Amendment, which in turn allows us to have a First, Fourth and all of the other freedoms that we take so much for granted. If it is at all possible, support the NRA and the work that they do.

Donna Kay Bennett, 49, of Lake Butler was arrested May 13 by Starke police for battery. According to the arrest report, Bennett was observed by an off-duty officer in the Walmart parking lot running over to a truck and opening the passenger side door. She then started to punch a female victim numerous times before the male driver of the truck separated the two women. The off-duty officer intervened until a police officer arrived. Bennett told the officer there was speculation the female victim was cheating with her boyfriendthe driver of the truckand that was the reason she got angry and attacked her when she spotted them in the truck together. Teressa Hodge Brown, 49, of Starke was arrested May 17 by Bradford deputies for possession of marijuana. According to the arrest report, Brown was in a vehicle pulled over on U.S. Recent arrests in Bradford, Clay and Union301 for a traffic stop, when it was discovered she had a bag of approximately 3 grams of marijuana hidden in her bra. Bond was set at $1,000 for the charge. Daniel Ray Brown, 36, of Starke was arrested May 18 by Bradford deputies for driving under the influence. Bond was set at $1,500 for the charge.

According to the arrest report, an officer pulled over a vehicle when she observed the passenger (Byrd) apparently not wearing a seat belt. When the officer approached Byrd, Byrd became combative, cursing at the officer and saying that he was wearing his seat belt, although he had the shoulder strap situated incorrectly below his arms. Byrd also refused to give the officer his name or produce any identification. After several attempts by the officer to get Byrd to comply, Byrd suddenly got out of the truck and got in the officers face, yelling at her to do what you gotta do, come on. The officer shoved him away and ordered him to stop, but he came back at her, so she fired her Taser, striking him in the chest. The Taser didnt seem to affect Byrd as he ripped off the wire from the dart and approached the officer again. She spun him around and was able to shove him against the patrol car, eventually handcuffing him and putting him in the patrol car. Bond was set at $9,870 for the charges, and both Columbia and Escambia counties confirmed they would extradite Byrd to face charges there.

According to the arrest report, Vanderpoel went to a yard sale in Starke in April and purchased two pieces of jewelry for $750, using a check to pay the owner. The owner of the jewelry called Vanderpoel several days later to let her know she had more jewelry for sale, and Vanderpoel went back to Starke on April 15 to the victims home. After looking at the jewelry, Vanderpoel agreed to purchase four pieces for $2,400. She told the victim she had to go to Lake City to meet her husband and get the agreed amount. After she left for Lake City, the owner realized Vanderpoel still had the jewelry on and tried to reach her on her cell phone for several days to no avail. Several days later, the owner was notified by her bank that the check for $750 from the yard sale was no good and she would be responsible for covering the funds from the check. SPD investigators were able to eventually locate most of the victims jewelry at several pawn shops in Jacksonville, and a month later, on May 16, Vanderpoel was interviewed about the jewelry.

Bond was set at $30,000 for the charges against Welch-Rowe. Felicia Stache Williams, 36, of Starke was arrested May 18 by Bradford deputies for smuggling contraband into a detention facility.

expense, less money borrowed on educational loans and/or less money to qualify for on a needs basis. Conversely, the short preparation and reliable employment suggests a faster recovery time for the expenditures. Additionally, the nursing program offers growth potential and the opportunity to qualify for that growth while working. In the 2003-04 school year, Clarence Desue was the technical centers director, and Reddish was the assistant director.   Reddish wrote the LPN program application, which was accepted, and the first year of the program started in 2004. More to the point, the application and the course requirements were closely articulated with Santa Fe College. Consequently, students who complete the program can easily bridge over into the Santa Fe College registered nursing program, and the previously completed work greatly facilitates the students progress in that program. LPN.com puts the average annual RN salary in Florida at almost $60,000. The only downside to the LPN program is that its appeal has become well known, and entry, due to class    size limitations, has also become competitive. The minimal qualifications for application to the program are as follows: Test of Adult Basic Education with an 11.0 gradelevel score. Test of Essential Academic Skills with an 11.0 grade-level score. Be at least 18 years of age. CPR card. Applications are accepted during the second semester and are due in March. High school students interested in a career in the health care fieldand especially the technical centers LPN programshould talk to the one of their high school or technical center counselors. These students would greatly benefit by enrolling in the Health Science Academy. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School senior Blake Richardson became the third baseball player in the Telegraph-Times-Monitor coverage area to sign a letter of intent with Trinity Baptist College, doing so during a May 15 ceremony in the KHHS media center. Its exciting, Richardson said. Ive always wanted to play baseball after high school. I didnt want that to be the end of it. Im just excited to play in college. Richardson will join Bradford High School seniors Wyatt Collins and David Hall, who signed letters of intent in April. They will be part of a brand new program, but a program that is hitting the ground running, according to head coach Jon Copeland, alluding to a competitive first-ever schedule. Were just glad to have Blake be a part of that, Copeland said. Were expecting some really, really good things from him. Of being a part of a first-year program, Richardson said, Itll be fun to start from scratch and just be able to work and get better. Richardson has been playing baseball since the age of 6. Hes always loved the sport, he said, and worked especially hard during his junior and senior years to put himself in position to get an opportunity at the next level. When I kept getting a bunch of emails from (Copeland), it really hit me that I had a good chance to go on to college, Richardson said. Keystone head coach Alan Mattox can attest to the amount of work Richardson has put in and said he was happy to see it pay off. Its really gratifying from a standpoint that Ive been able to watch Blake develop since his seventh-grade year, Mattox said. Mattox said he has seen Richardson develop into a mature player who is not only a tough out at the plate, but a standout on defense as well. I think just his anticipation of plays, Mattox said when asked what makes Richardson such a good defensive player. He sees the ball so well. He tracks the ball well and sees it off the bat really good. He gets to the point where he fields the ball and gets it out of his hand quickly. He cant wait to graduate from high school and get started as a player at the next level, Richardson said. Plus, he will be joined at the school by some of the players on his travel team. I have a bunch of friends going there, so its going to be fun, Richardson said. Mattox said the next level will bring better overall competition and a faster game, but he believes Richardson has what it takes to meet those challenges. With his work ethic, I see him having no problem adjusting to the higher level of play when he gets to college, Mattox said.KHHS Richardson to play at Trinity Baptist 6B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 22, 2014 904-368-0687 phwww.starkedivorce.comMARGARET ANDERSON1011 N.

Findleys first powerlifting event was the USA Powerlifting Central Florida Open Championships, at which she set records for bench press, dead lift and overall total. That effort qualified her for the July 19-21, 2013, Raw/Unequipped National Powerlifting Championships. Findley placed first in her weight class and age division. In October 2013, Findley competed at the USA Powerlifting Southeastern USA Regional Championships, where she won the gold medal in 12 divisions and broke seven records. Sounds like a pretty good day, but Findley said, It wasnt my best meet at all. Though basically a newcomer to the sport, Findley told the Telegraph-Times-Monitor in 2013 she felt as if powerlifting was her destiny, saying, My dad was in it. I guess I just had a big interest in it for a long time. Shes certainly made her mark so far and is looking forward to doing so when she moves up in age division, which will happen when she turns 18 in December. Findley said she has no doubt shell set records during her first year of competition in the higher age division. The amount of weight shes been lifting is certainly impressive, but Griffis said whats just as impressive is the fact that Findley is up front about her faith. Not many kids are willing to stand up on a platform and say the reason theyre doing it is for God, that theyre wanting to please him, Griffis said. She does that. It makes you real proud of a kid whos like that. Competing at such events as the one in St. Croix costs money. A plane ticket for one to St. Croix costs $1,400, Findley said, plus she will need to pay for a hotel room and apparel that lifters are required to wear. In all, she will need approximately $5,000 for the St. Croix trip. Findley and Griffis are looking for sponsors or anyone who is willing to give any amount. Whatever theyre able to give, we dont care, Griffis said. The slightest little bit helps. The community has already supported Findley with previous competition costs, and for that, she and Griffis are grateful. Findley said the giving spirit especially when it comes to supporting youthis what makes the Lake Butler/Union County community so special. They help you out no matter what, Findley said. They put you before themselves. If you are interested in helping, please contact Findley at findley1lynn@gmail.com or Griffis at 352-494-1362. Who knows? You may be able to say you assisted in bringing a world championship to Union County. Griffis, for one, is confident that Findley can shine on the world stage. She never ceases to amaze me, Griffis said.LIFTContinued from 1B LPNContinued from 2B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Theyve been getting in shape and learning formations and plays since May 1. Now, the football players at Bradford, Keystone Heights and Union County high schools will get the chance to hit someone other than their teammates when the teams participate in games on Friday, May 23, at 7 p.m. Bradford will travel to Newberry for a three-team game that also includes Dunnellon, while Keystone will travel to St. Augustine to take on Menendez. Union will remain home, hosting Duval Charter. Last year, Keystone was the only one of the three teams to cap its spring with a win, though you could also say Unions varsity team came away a winner after a 6-6 tie against defending Class 2A champ University Christian. Daquin Buddy Edwards had a third-quarter touchdown run that put the Tigers up 6-0. University didnt score until the fourth quarter, which featured Union junior varsity players. The Indians played Menendez last spring as well, pulling out a 9-6 come-from-behind win on the last play of the game when Michael Carroll took a short Wyatt Harvin pass and turned it into a 21-yard touchdown. Keystone scored on its first possession of the game when J.J. Schofield kicked a 34-yard field goal. Bradfords varsity players didnt fare too well in a 35-23 loss to Fleming Island as the Eagles led 35-14 at the half, with four of their five scores covering 36 yards or more. The Tornadoes played mostly younger players in the second half, though varsity running back Travon Thomas had a 14-yard touchdown run in that half to finish the game with two scores. He had a 4-yard scoring run in the first half and finished the game with 59 yards on 10 carries. Quarterback Jacob Luke, who was 8-of-17 for 161 yards, threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Dinkins for Bradfords first score. Dinkins finished the game with six catches for 148 yards.Football teams end spring with May 23 games Enrollment into the Health Science Academy qualifies the students to take a series of high school elective classes, such as Medical Terminology, Cardio Technology, Respiratory Care, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. An additional benefit of the noted elective classes is that they can serve as college credit if the student passes a qualifying endof-class test. (In this regard, the noted Health academy elective classes are dual-enrollment classes.) Interestingly also, Chemistry and Anatomy can be taken as Health Academy classes.   These two classes can serve double duty as required high school credit and dual-enrollment credit as well if the same end-of-class test is passed. Furthermore, college credit given for the above dual-enrollment classes carries no tuition. The perks of the Health Science Academy do not stop there.   Once the Health Academy students graduate from the program and high school, they are certified phlebotomists and certified nursing assistants. Both of these health care professions are also highly employable. This could provide immediate employment for high school graduates and the ability to work part time while engaging in the LPN program or other collegiate health care programs.   Salary. com puts the average annual CNA salary in the United States at about $30,000.

Tempest said. Considering what we had and that we were able to get third place in the state in our circuit that we compete in, we definitely had a strong showing. Tempest said giving the more advanced students opportunities that allow them to grow as musicians can also pay off for a schools entire band program. For example, Tempest said he saw one of the Bradford High School members of the Bradford Independent group showing other BHS students what he had learned from being part of that group. Its kind of infectious in a good way to the students around them, Tempest said. Tempest expressed his thanks to the administration at both Bradford High School and Bradford Middle School, where the majority of rehearsals were held. He also thanked the schools athletic directors for their help in the group being able to use the schools gymnasiums.

Baby born at Lawtey City Hall BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Lawtey Police Department shared glad tidings of great joy via Facebook Friday night, announcing that a baby had been born on the steps of city hall. Police Capt. Nathan Blom arrived at city hall around 8 p.m. May 16 and found a man and his wife on the wood porch in front of the building. The couple was from out of town and traveling to a Jacksonville hospital for the birth when they had to pull over for help. The labor had progressed too far and the baby was on its way. The husband, in the middle of an emergency call, was relieved to have an officer on the scene, but as the police department noted, Bloms forte is writing tickets, not delivering infants. Hoping to find assistance around the corner, Blom ran to the fire department, but found no one. The EMS unit stationed there was out on call. Then Barron Warner arrived, and just in time, too. Warner, a volunteer firefighter and certified emergency medical technician lives nearby and heard dispatch proclaim the emergency. In minutes, he was on hand to hear the father exclaim, The baby is here! But all was not well. The childs umbilical cord was wrapped around its neck. Warners training proved lifesaving in the childs delivery. According to the police department, both the new baby boy and Capt. Blom were in tears. I saw the joy on their (the parents) face and its just amazing. I am just glad I was able to help them. Warner told WCJB. Us fire, EMS, police, we see a lot of bad. Its very rare that we get to see the good in things. For that to happen, its a great reminder, and I am sure everybody can agree, its a great reminder of why we love doing what were doing. Warners father, Fire Chief Kenny Warner, arrived and expressed his pride. Thats my boy! he said. Pedestrian killed by train BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A woman from a local living assistance facility died tragically Sunday morning when she was hit by a train. Starke police announced Monday that 69-year-old Nancy Cannon Gay was the victim. The police department was dispatched to the scene around 6:30 a.m. May 18 on the report that a pedestrian was struck by a train. It wasnt long before they discovered the victims body near the Jackson Street crossing. The northbound train was stalled on the eastern track. Gay was a resident at Parkside Assisted Living Facility, located a block away from the CSX line on North Church Street. According to what police have learned during their investigation, Gay slipped out of Parkside around 5:50 a.m., but they dont know why or where she might have been going. The investigation continues with the help of CSX Corporation. Gay had lived at the facility since 2009.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Conflict over annexation was virtually over by the time representatives from the Starke City Commission and Bradford County Commission sat down this month for a conflict resolution meeting. The county called the meeting after Starke annexed the site of a future commercial development even though it was not contiguous to the city, and the move drew attention to prior city annexation activity that was equally problematic. When it received the countys letter, Starke was already taking steps to reverse the annexation of the Badcock property as well as the 301 corridor out to Walmart and one more commercial property along the corridor. Because the city was set to begin contraction of the city limits this month, there was little to resolve, except the manner in which the two bodies will work together in the future. Mayor Carolyn Spooner was opposed to the tone of the conflict resolution letter sent by the county. She said Starke wasnt refusing to hear what the county had to say about annexation, but the two boards never met to discuss the matter. That should have happened before an impasse was declared and the county jumped to conflict resolution, she said. From the countys perspective, the city was not listening to its concerns, moving forward with the latest annexation even after city and county officials sat down at the sheriffs office to discuss its legality, and against the advice of the North Florida Regional Planning Council, whose position was misrepresented when the board voted on the annexation. The countys attorney, Will Sexton, said the meeting at the sheriffs office was the countys attempt to resolve the issue quietly. I left that meeting with the impression that the city understood our concerns, he said. The next thing we heard is that you had adopted the ordinance. Spooner said she shared the sentiments expressed by Riddick in past weeks about the city and county working together, but said rather than extend an olive branch as was mentioned at a county commission meeting, she was extending her hand across the table, and the rest of the city commission felt the same way. We are too small a community not to work together, she said, adding that what affects the city impacts the county, and vice versa. Riddick said that since he spoke out in April, many have approached him saying its about time the city and county work together. Working together and seeing eye to eye are not necessarily the same thing, however. When Riddick mentioned his desire to seek Starkes building and zoning brought back under the countys umbrella, the idea received a cold shoulder from the officials present. In fact, the city continues to work on the reestablishment of its own building and zoning department, contemplating whether to staff the office full or part time. The county commission will officially declare the conflict over annexation resolved by resolution once the citys boundary contraction ordinances have been finalized next month. Tipping fees going up BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Commissioners from the three counties who make up the New River Solid Waste Association say they want to wean their governments off of the revenue they receive from the landfilleventually. They determined this year was too soon to cut their individual budgets, so the counties have a year longer to prepare. The money the counties receive in 2015, however, will once again be limited to revenue from tipping fees or unanticipated revenue and not money already set aside for future projects. Member counties partaking of landfill revenue is not new. Each has received several hundred thousand dollars annually in dividends from their operation of New River. Union County even gets an additional $100,000 for agreeing to host the landfill site. At one point, the landfills largest contractual revenue source, Alachua County, pointed out that the member counties get more out of the landfill than they contribute. In the 2014 budget, fees to the counties were set at $1,090,000, but in-region revenue from those counties was projected to be just over $1 million. Alachua, by contrastwhich does dispose of far more wastewas paying $5.2 million. The New River Solid Waste Association was criticized in its 2013 audit when the counties dipped into reserve funding for additional revenue to fund their own budgets. That money had been set aside for the future care of the landfillan obligation the counties can plan for now or burden future generations with long after the landfill has closed and ceased turning a profit. Plus there are plenty of projects between now and then that need to be funded, as Executive Director Darrell ONeal pointed out at the top of the May 8 budget workshop. ONeal said given future obligations, host fees are going to have to come down, and commissioners understood. In the future, ONeal said he sees the counties splitting unanticipated revenue versus building dividend payments into the budget. Union Commissioner Karen Cossey said the counties have to learn to stand on their own without the landfills financial support. Bradford Commissioner Doyle Thomas said he would recommend cutting the host fees in half in the 2016 budget, or support eliminating them entirely with the rest of the boards support. I think we all know we have to do away with it, Baker Commissioner Mark Hartley said. Theres no need in us putting our counties at risk down the road, Thomas said. The budget for 2015, approved May 8, includes $790,000 for the member counties$330,000 each, plus $100,000 more for Union County. The new budget also includes a $2 per ton increase in tipping feesthe first increase in 18 yearswhich will raise an additional $84,000. That is expected to grow to $34 a ton by 2017 and $46 a ton by 2018 if the contract with Alachua County ends that year. See BUDGET, 6A

Bradford Sheriff Gordon Smith, Justice Coalition Executive Director Ann Dugger, John Rutherford, and Clay Sheriff Rick Beseler. It was a beautiful day for the 6th annual Shoot for Justice on May 9 at WW Sporting Clays on Jacksonvilles Westside. More than 100 people tested their sharp shooting skills at the fundraising event to benefit the Justice Coalition, including Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith, Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter and Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford. The main event is the Sheriffs Shootout and this year was an upset. Columbias Sheriff Hunter took over the title from Sheriff Rutherford of Jacksonville, who had extended the invitation to Hunter to participate. Rutherford had been the reigning champion for the past three years. Duval Ford was the presenting sponsor of the event and Whitley Steel was a Justice Level Sponsor. Participants all received a Shoot for Justice Hat, a commemorative towel, and shells for the shootout. The event was followed by the awards ceremony, which included a fish fry. The event was a big success and raised approximately $25,000 for the Justice Coalition. If you would like to donate to the organization which helps innocent victims of violent crime, just log on to www. justicecoalition.org.

If elected I will do my best to make sure everyone is heard! Thank you to the Bradford County Telegraph for allowing me to print my letter of intent. Andy Norman BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Have boot drives in Starke become too much of a good thing? The Starke City Commission which typically approves at least one boot drive each meeting and sometimes more than one for a single groupthinks so, and the board is limiting the number an organization can have each year. There will also be a cap on the number of boot drives allowed each month. There are so many requests for boot drives that the city has to verify that there isnt one already scheduled for a requested date before moving forward with approval, and commissioners say the public is weary of this brand of fundraising. Commissioners recalled limiting the number of boot drives in the past, but they couldnt remember what those limits were. The city clerk found that the commission discussed limits, but never put them in writing, and has since approved boot drives without regard to prior discussions. The conversation came up again in April. I think even our local people get tired of boot drives, Commissioner Travis Woods said. They get tired of being stopped every weekend. According to the policy set to be approved May 20, written requests for boot drives with proof on insurance must be made to the city clerks office by the Thursday before the next scheduled commission meeting in order to make the agenda, and requests will be placed on the agenda in the order they are received. Each organization will only be allowed to request two boot drives per year, and alternate rain date requests must be in the same month of the original request. A maximum of two boot drives will be permitted each month. A permit will be issued by the clerk after the commission has voted to approve a boot drive, and the permit must be taken to the police department in order to receive the brightly colored vests that must be worn by boot drive participants. A fee will be assessed if the vests are not returned. No one under 18 will be allowed to enter traffic to collect money, and all minors on the sidewalk must be supervised. Boot drives must take place during daylight hours and may not inhibit the flow of traffic. Harassing vehicles or pedestrians is prohibited. Applicants will be required to sign an acknowledgment of these rules. www.facebook.com/BradfordTelegraph

Most elementary and middle schools in the county joined the event, including private schools. Classrooms from different schools and other organizations set up exhibits and demonstrations of science principles, each overseen by a science teacher assisted by students. This was the fifth year for the event; its first three were held at Starke Elementary and the last two years it has moved to Bradford Middle School to include schools countywide. The event is actually a satellite of the USA Science and Engineering Festival, a federal program, underwritten by LockheedMartin. To begin the evening, the districts McKinney/Vento student advocate Linda Miller slimed Bradford Middle Schools behavioral resource officer, Ray Schaefer. The two then moved on to sliming other willing and eager victims with silly string and multicolored goo. An uncooperative catapult, meant to illustrate physics principles, refused to cooperate and catapulted pans of slime only two feet, leaving elementary students clean as a whistle. No matter, the teachers delivered the goods. Later an announcement was made that a hose and water were available outside for those who wanted to wash the stuff off. The demonstrations were sponsored by schools throughout Bradford County, and by organizations in the community. The BHS Key Club made ice cream while demonstrating principles of freezing; Shands Starke ran a health booth; the Bradford County Health Department emphasized hand washing. Class-sponsored projects included the popular fireworksin-milk table. (Its an explosion of color.) This involves pouring milk into a dinner plate, then adding drops of food coloring. Due to its chemical properties, a drop of liquid dish soap put into the center of the plate fans the food coloring out like fireworks. Superintendent Chad Farnsworth said, Science night is a fun way to promote our science programs, and get parents and students involved. He added that its also a good introduction to science; the fun can lead to more serious learning and discovery throughout students school careers. Miller said the demonstrations are designed for parents to repeat at home with affordable, easy to get materials to help bring out budding scientists in their households. Almost 600 students and parents from around the county attended the event. Dr. Miller, M.A.D., slimed willing members of the crowd.

K-5 students at Brooker Elementary were treated to a rare experience on May 15. U.S. Navy Commander Chris Flaherty from the Pentagon paid a visit to the school to speak with students. Commander Flaherty shared with the Brooker students his roots of growing up in a similarly small town with a population of 700 in Cleveland, N.Y. Since his young school days in Cleveland, he played athletics at Duke University while attending college and went on to give 20plus years of service to the Navy, visiting more than 40 countries across the globe. His message focused on dreaming your dream, working hard and maintaining selfdiscipline. He visited every class, and students were offered the opportunity to ask questions. Students were curious about how fast Navy jets could fly, how hard it was to become a pilot and his favorite country to visit. The session wrapped up with a surprise Skype session between Mrs. Boukaris fourth-grade class at Brooker and fourthgraders at Flahertys hometown school, Cleveland Elementary. Brooker Elementary continues to nurture the new relationship with Cleveland Elementary, created via the First a Dream Foundation. Submitted by Patricia Cook.

Thursday, May 22, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. I thought your readers would be interested to know that nematodes can be beneficial for controlling fleas. I am supplying you with a catalogue which provides ordering information. Tommy Clark, Hampton Lake Thank you for sharing this information, Tommy. I researched University of Florida resources and found a wealth of information about using nematodes to control insects. Nematodes are roundworms that are neither segmented, like earthworms, nor flat and slimy like other worms. They are the most abundant animals on the planet. Approximately four out of every five multicellular organisms are nematodes. They can be found in almost every environment on earth, from deserts to polar ice caps. Nematodes sometimes get a bad rap because people think of them as plant and animal parasites. However, less than 1 percent of the million or more nematode species are harmful. Most nematodes feed on bacteria, fungi and other microscopic organisms. Others, however, can be used to kill unwanted insect pests. Several species are mass-produced and sold commercially, like those in the catalogue you shared with me. Nematodes that are beneficial for insect control have an infective state (as larvae) that enters into the insect host through openings in its body or thin areas of the insects exoskeleton. After entry, the nematodes release special bacteria, unique to nematodes, into the insect. The toxins produced by the bacteria kill the insect after only a few days. The infective state nematodes then exit the body in search of other insects to infect. Different types of nematodes are suitable for controlling different types of pests. For fleas, ambusher-type nematodes lie in wait for host insects to move toward them. The nematodes stand on their tails and jump onto the host. Interestingly, the University of Florida source I found on this subject listed various types of weevils, gnats, woodborers, mole crickets and webworms as pests that can be controlled with nematodes. However, it did not list fleas. This is probably because nematode larvae can only live outside, while flea larvae can live indoors as well as in lawns and dirt. So pet owners who keep their pets indoors or indoors and out would probably not get an adequate level of control. You can purchase nematodes from a number of vendors onlinejust google nematodes to control fleas. Keep the nematodes in a cool place until use, and use them as soon as possible. Its best to apply them during early morning or evening, or during a light rain. Water soil before and after applying nematodes. For more information, see http://bit.ly/1vsMFQn. Mary W.

Tipping fees for Alachua and Levy counties will also experience annual CPI increases next year that add a few cents to their tipping fees but more than $195,000 to the landfill budget. The budget gives employees a $1 an hour raise, for an increase of around $85,000 in compensation-related costs. The pay increase applies to everyone except ONeal. Last year, he traded future pay raises for job security in the form of a contract guaranteeing him at least five years. The director presented a $3.1 million equipment replacement schedule with purchases through 2018, beginning with the CAT D6 purchased that night. Engineering costs were down around $363,000 compared to 2014. Even with such reductions, money was taken out of escrow for depreciation in order to balance the budget. Unlike 2014, there was no cash carry forward from the prior budget. The total budget approved by the board was more than $7.8 million, up nearly $336,000 over this year.

By ALL Buildings require $100 down plus 1st months payment One of the highlights of the Altrusa International District 3 conference was the presentation at the Governors Banquet of the fifth annual Spirit Award to Cheryl Canova of Starke. The Spirit Award is given to an Altrusan who exemplifies the Altrusa spirit at the local and district levels by outstanding involvement in the governors goals through leadership, service projects and membership recruitment. This honor is bestowed on an Altrusan selected by his/her peers at each years conferencepeople who know about this dedication to serving others. Canova served as president of the Starke club for three years. Her vision of a better community has enriched the vision of the membership, providing many new and enhanced opportunities for her club to give back to their community every year. Her club membership has grown tremendously under her leadership, and she is always looking for younger Altrusans to develop into future leaders. She attends every conference, gleaning information to take back to her club, where she motivates them to meet every goal set before them. According to her club members, she is an inspiration to her club and her community, and has earned many honors for her work, including being named a Woman of Distinction in Alachua and Bradford counties. The Spirit Award has been bestowed on several worthy Altrusans since it was created by Past Governor Robin Hall in 2010 because she felt Altrusans that gave above and beyond to their district and communities should be recognized. Cheryl Canova had led Altrusa to growth and greater service. BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The New River Regional Landfill appears to be getting closer to a workable gas-toenergy project. The goal is to turn the methane-rich gas produced by decomposing waste into a profit-making renewable energy project. Alan Beer of Florida Energy Partners walked the board through plans for the project, including how a power plant would be constructed on site to feed electricity to the grid through Clay Electrics lines. The party interested in purchasing the power is Duke Energy. Although there was no power purchase agreement yet, there was a letter of intent to enter into negotiations. That is closer than the landfill has been to selling its gas, which is currently burnt off to comply with air quality standards. Were just burning money out there right now, said Commissioner Doyle Thomas. According to Beer, Duke is interested in increasing its use of renewable energy and is even willing to pay line capacity charges, which gives this project a huge advantage. Any contract would be a minimum of 15 years, although the project would is expected to last beyond 20 years. Two engines would produce four megawatts of power, but the addition of a third generator later on could boost that amount. Beer said the power purchase agreement would include an early termination clause for the landfill, but not for Duke, so the board could pursue a better offer if one comes along, but Duke could not walk away and leave the board without a customer. As long as the plant is producing at least 86 percent of the time, the association would receive full payment. Beer said another factor making Duke an attractive partner is the higher cost of its power when compared to other utilities, and that cost is only expected to rise. FEPs proposal differs from a previous proposal the association was considering because this time the association is investing in constructing the power plant. In order to do so, Executive Director Darrell ONeal said the board could borrow from itself, taking all of the funding set aside for long-term care and using it for the construction of the gasto-energy project. According to information given to the board, $5.8 million is currently set aside for longterm planning. Profits from the gas-to-energy project are anticipated to increase annually from around $406,000 in the first year to nearly $1.6 million for the year 2029. The association would pay itself back with interest from the proceeds, setting aside the money for its long-term planning goals, and enjoy a profit to boot. At the end of this 15 years, well be 100 percent funded without having to add another dime in the account, ONeal said. If figures prove true, the profit will be close to $7.1 million total (minus depreciation) at the end of 15 years, plus more than $9 million for planning. Beer said if the board could still explore what other customers might be out there, but Dukes interest is proof this is a viable project. Theres no reason not to move forward, he said. The board authorized staff to enter into negotiations with FEP for the design-build contract. FEP will work with Duke on the power purchase agreement.

Heather Thornton, 37, of 715 West Main Street in Lake Butler is the latest arrested for illegal narcotic/prescription drug possession/sale and use. Undercover officers and sources purchased large quantities of Suboxone, a Schedule III narcotic. Additionally, the charge also carries a much stiffer penalty since she lives in government housing. Thornton also faces charges of using electronic devices in the drug trade, stemming from using a cellular telephone to conduct this business. She was taken into custody without incident and booked at the Union County Jail and transported to Bradford County. The release stated that investigators recovered over $1,000 of stolen property this past week that had been taken in recent burglaries, and that suspects were also charged and arrested and are currently in the Union County Jail. James Robert Cephus Seay, 39, was charged with grand theft after investigators recovered thousands of dollars in equipment and tools that were sold and pawned by Seay. He was booked in the Union County Jail and has since been released by the judge. Additional charges are now also being filed by Alachua County investigators on Seay for dealing in stolen property. Darin Scott Blackwelder, 26, of Worthington Springs was also arrested on a felony probation violation stemming from a burglary of a residence there where numerous tools and electronics were stolen. Deputies recovered some of the items during a follow-up investigation at Blackwelders residence. He remains in custody.

for Findley. In a 2013 interview with the Telegraph-TimesMonitor, she said the only day of the week shes not in the weight room is Sunday because of church. Most girls dont spend the time in the gym that she does, Griffis said. Thats what separates her from everybody else. That work ethic is important because no one at the meets Findley competes at is pushing her. Shes that much better than everyone else in her weight class and age division. Griffis said because Findley has had no competition, a lot of what she accomplishes at meets comes down to her mental approach. For people, it usually takes somebody pushing them to make them get better, Griffis said. When you dont have anybody pushing you, it makes you kind of lag, but with her, its the opposite. She sees the record, and she wants to go get it. For her part, Findley said, Youve got to find it within world level. People really need to sit up and take notice and really give her the accolades she deserves for what shes done, Union County High School weightlifting coach Bryan Griffis said. How many kids can say, Well, Im going to lift in the worlds, and I stand a chance of setting the world record in my weight class? Whoevers heard of a 17-yearold kid being able to do that? It may be a bigger stage than what shes competed on in the past, but Findley believes she can do well, citing the fact that she has already lifted the world record in the dead lift during her workouts and is close to worldrecord totals in the bench press and back squat. Im pretty excited, Findley said. There isnt any telling what Ill be able to do there. I plan on breaking world records. High goals, to be sure, but Griffis has encouraged Findley to aim high in any goal in life. Dont ever set the bar low for yourself, Griffis said. Set it high. Set it somewhere to where youve got to work to get something. Work has never been an issue BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a typical performance for 17-year-old Union County High School student Kaylee Findley, but typical for her is an outstanding achievement. Findley broke three of her own U.S. powerlifting records in her weight class and age division at the May 11 Southeastern High School State Wars in Columbus, Ga. Not only did Findley break the records in the bench press, dead lift and overall total, but she set a personal record in the back squat as well. I went there with a mindset of what I was going to do, and I accomplished it, said Findley, who will be a UCHS senior next year. I felt very confident going into the meet. And why shouldnt she have felt confident? Her first-ever powerlifting event on July 7, 2013, resulted in her winning the heavyweight class in her age division, setting three records and receiving an invitation to join Team USA. Exactly one year later, Findley will leave for St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, to compete at the spend a lot of time talking about drainage and the handling of rainwater. Im sure there were other issues, but those two stand out as kind of recurring problems over the time I served.

Thurs: 7:15 PG-13Hugh Jackman in Bryan Cranston inX-MENDays of Future Past PG-13 BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Times and Monitor Growing up on a farm during the agricultural heyday of the town of Brooker provided local resident Evan Winfield E.W. Hodges with a strong grounding in the value of hard work, community and faith, which has served him well for all of his 84 years. Born at his family home in Brooker to parents Evan W. and Ruby Mae (Greene), Hodges said he grew up as a typical farm boyplaying ball, fishing with his friends Jack and Doyle Hazen and the Hayes brothers, and staying out of the way of his four sisters. There was plenty of farm work to occupy his time as well, as his father operated a large truck farm. When he was old enough and had learned to drive, his father put him to work transporting farm produce. He remembers one triphis longestto New York City. I drove up there and arrived at night, Hodges said. It was big and bright, and I was ready to come home almost as soon as I got there. Hodges attended Bradford High School, where he remembers Della Rosenberg as one of his best teachers. Later, while working as a bus driver at the school, he remembers providing transportation for some of her classes field trips. This was how he met his future wife, Yvonne Brooks. I have never really figured out why, but Miss Rosenberg seemed to have a serious problem with Yvonne and I seeing each other, Hodges said. She even came right out and told Yvonne not to marry me. The couple married anyway when Yvonne graduated; she was 17, and he was 23. Evidently it turned out to be a better match then their teacher had thought since they had been married for 60 years when Yvonne away last December. Hodges became a traveling salesman for Suntech Paint of Gainesville and traveled over much of the southeast, visiting hardware and paint stores. Yvonne occasionally traveled with him until their first child arrived and she became a stay-athome moma role Hodges was happy for her to play. The growing family moved several times in connection with Hodges work, living, among other places, in Nashville and Jackson, Miss. They always seemed to find their way home, however, and the family retained strong roots in Bradford County. The couple had three children Randall (deceased), Mark (deceased) and Kim (Morgan) who provided them with six grandchildren. Although Hodges said he did really well as a salesman, he wanted to stay closer to home to spend more time with his family. He opened Hodges Building Supply and Paint on SR 100 in the late sixties and settled down to be part of the local community. Hodges was a member of the Starke Rotary Club for many years, serving one year as president. He served as president of the Suwannee River Economic Council in Bradford County for 16 years, from its inception in 1998 until his resignation for health reasons in April of this year. He is a longtime member of the Masonic Lodge in Brooker and attends Trinity Baptist Church in Keystone Heights. Along the way he also found time to serve for 12 years on the Bradford County Commission, from 1972 until 1984. He remembers that the problems considered by that body have not changed much over the years. Roads were always an issue back then.

BY MICKEY AGNER Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor What young adult would not like to start a career that would last a lifetime, pay a good salary and ensure employment? Additionally, if the preparation time for that career started in high school and at the most lasted one year post high school graduation, would that not make it more attractive? Well Christy Reddish, director of the Bradford-Union Technical Center, indicates that she provides that opportunity in the centers licensed practical nursing program and the centers Health Science Academy. The LPN program graduates between 90 and 100 percent of its accepted students. Almost 100 percent of those students who complete all of their program requirements are employed. All of the student requirements can be completed in a years time, and according to LPN.com, the average annual LPN salary in Florida is about $40,000. Additionally, none of the noted positions are in danger of being outsourced, and the health care field is one of the most reliable and employable fields for qualified applicants. Needless to say, Reddish is describing a very attractive health program. More importantly, the accolades for the program do not stop there. The fact that the program lasts only one year does not carry a time factor benefit only. Less time means less expense, and accordingly, the programs yearly expenses will total only slightly over $6,000. That will be less direct Technical Center LPN program: a great educational opportunity While Hodges worked at his business and served the community, Yvonne joined the workforce. After the kids were grown, she wanted something to do, so she became a secretary at Hampton Elementary School, Hodges said. She worked under Principal Lynn Register and was there for about 20 years.

Bradford Independent was made up of students from such high schools as Buchholz, Orange Park, Clay, Fleming Island and West Nassau, as well as Bradford and Union. Several students from colleges such as Santa Fe, Florida State College at Jacksonville and the University of North Florida were a part of the group as well, rejoining some of their former high school band mates and band directors. There were quite a few participating schools that had no student representation, but supported the group by loaning instruments and providing what resources they could. For example, Keystone Heights and Baker County high schools didnt have any students in the groupat least for this year but those schools directors were willing to do whatever they could to help the effort. Tempest said the directors had the mindset of, I love the idea, and thats something that can help grow music in our area. There are other percussion groups in the state that charge as much as $900 to $2,000 per season, Tempest said. Those groups, he said, also put in a lot more hours of rehearsal time. By relying on a support system of various schools, Bradford Independent was able to charge a participation fee of $600. As for rehearsal time, the group took into account the fact that many of BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It may not have the resources and time commitment of other groups, but Bradford Independent Percussion has talent, which proved itself by earning a thirdplace finish the Independent A class at the March 28-30 Florida Federation of Color Guards Circuit Championships, which were held in Daytona Beach. Bradford High School band director Cody Tempest was the co-director of the Bradford Independent group, which consisted of approximately 40 members from various high schools and colleges, including three students from BHS Hunter Cooper, Logan Gowens and Micah Hulingand one from Union County High SchoolWilliam Brown. Weve combined resources with a lot of local schools and local band programs, Tempest said. Its a kind of rather large activity that a lot of these small schools dont really have the resources or the funds or even the students needed to make one of these groups happen just at the high schools by themselves. Several different schools kind of pitched in and made it work.

Its a way of exposing advanced band students especially those at smaller, rural-area schoolsto more challenging opportunities that often arent available to them. That comes in the form of getting them together with advanced students from other schools and performing with the best of the best, whether its among fellow Bradford Independent members during practices or among students from throughout the state at competitions. Very often, our more talented students leave (high school) and go unchallenged, Tempest said. Each high school has their own best drummer, and theyre usually the best drummer they know because they dont have the exposure. The idea was, get a lot of this talent together and kind of get them in the same pool challenging each other. That was definitely a goal of ours this year, to challenge our upperlevel students and give them something to work at above and beyond the normal levels that our small high school programs can offer them. its participating students had jobs they had to be at or were involved in their churches on Sundays. The Bradford group practiced 10-12 hours on Saturdays only, whereas a lot of other groups practice on multiple days. Still, the Bradford group made an impression in early season competitions. We had a really high level of talent among our students that we were pulling from, Tempest said. However, during midseason, other groups began overtaking Bradford at competitions as their extra hours of rehearsal time started to show. Plus, there was a three-week stretch of competitions that prevented the group from rehearsing at all, Tempest said. They may not have devoted as much time in rehearsals as other groups, but the Bradford Independent members certainly worked hard to do as well as they could. They were really pushing themselves and pushing each other within the constraints that we had to really reach and achieve as much as possible, Tempest said. What it eventually resulted in was a noteworthy showing at the FFCC Championships. Definitely, if we were at the commitment level some of these other groups were atfinancially or timewise we couldve been a lot more successful with the season, BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If a classroom has a shortage of textbooks and no funds to purchase more, students can share books. A schools band program has no such option if there is a shortage of instruments. The difference is two people cant share a trumpet, Bradford High School band director Cody Tempest said. Tempest, who is in his second year at BHS, is calling on the community to help support the program. If anyone has instruments they arent using whether its a former high school band student who has his or her instrument sitting in a closet or attic, or a professional player who no longer has need of a certain instrumentthey are encouraged to consider donating it to BHS. The band program has already received donations from several ex-military musicians. Such a donation would go a long way in helping Tempest build the band program back up to the level it was at in the 1970s and 1980s. Tempest said the BHS band consisted of as many as 150 kids those years. Its doable here, he said. However, the program doesnt currently have the number of instruments to support such a large program. Tempest said when he took over as director, the program had a lot of instruments that that had a cumulative total of $150,000-plus worth of damage. A lot of the programs budget goes toward instrument repair, but it only amounts to chipping away slowly at a large amount, Tempest said. Tempest spends quite a bit of time attempting to fix what he can on instruments, which ensures that the instruments stay in the classroom. If sent away for repairs, a student could be without an instrument for up to two weeks. Thats why Tempest is asking on the community to help out. He pointed out that the band program has already benefited greatly, with parents and community members gladly volunteering their efforts. The community is been so supportive, Tempest said.

Dear Editor: So very often we exercise the freedoms that we take for granted. Freedom of speech: to say anything and everything we want without somebody in authority telling us we cant. The remarks can be so vile and distasteful that we wonder how a person can get away with it. It is given to us by the constitution under the Bill of Rights. You and I know it as the First AmendmentWe really take this one for granted as we do the fourth amendment. That one says that we can gang up anywhere and anytime and gang up with the Second Amendment and give the devil or anybody as much hell as we care to without fear of reprisal from the government. Now how much of this do you and I take for granted? Probably all of it! At first we would want to call that stupid and in a way it is. If one loses sight of the fact that its a God given right handed down to us by way of the US Constitutions Bill of Rights. Well, you say, the First Amendment and the Fourth Amendment give me those rights. If you think it ends there you really have your head up the wrong place. Let me give you something to think about because you are not thinking yet. If it were not for the SECOND Amendment we wouldnt have anything except an overly dominating government. Dont tell me its not possible. All you have to do is look around the world at all of the government controlled countries. Every day we are waging wars to keep the government that we have. I think that the NRA is leading the fight to make sure that we have a Second Amendment, which in turn allows us to have a First, Fourth and all of the other freedoms that we take so much for granted. If it is at all possible, support the NRA and the work that they do.

Donna Kay Bennett, 49, of Lake Butler was arrested May 13 by Starke police for battery. According to the arrest report, Bennett was observed by an off-duty officer in the Walmart parking lot running over to a truck and opening the passenger side door. She then started to punch a female victim numerous times before the male driver of the truck separated the two women. The off-duty officer intervened until a police officer arrived. Bennett told the officer there was speculation the female victim was cheating with her boyfriendthe driver of the truckand that was the reason she got angry and attacked her when she spotted them in the truck together. Teressa Hodge Brown, 49, of Starke was arrested May 17 by Bradford deputies for possession of marijuana. According to the arrest report, Brown was in a vehicle pulled over on U.S. Recent arrests in Bradford, Clay and Union 301 for a traffic stop, when it was discovered she had a bag of approximately 3 grams of marijuana hidden in her bra. Bond was set at $1,000 for the charge. Daniel Ray Brown, 36, of Starke was arrested May 18 by Bradford deputies for driving under the influence. Bond was set at $1,500 for the charge.

According to the arrest report, an officer pulled over a vehicle when she observed the passenger (Byrd) apparently not wearing a seat belt. When the officer approached Byrd, Byrd became combative, cursing at the officer and saying that he was wearing his seat belt, although he had the shoulder strap situated incorrectly below his arms. Byrd also refused to give the officer his name or produce any identification. After several attempts by the officer to get Byrd to comply, Byrd suddenly got out of the truck and got in the officers face, yelling at her to do what you gotta do, come on. The officer shoved him away and ordered him to stop, but he came back at her, so she fired her Taser, striking him in the chest. The Taser didnt seem to affect Byrd as he ripped off the wire from the dart and approached the officer again. She spun him around and was able to shove him against the patrol car, eventually handcuffing him and putting him in the patrol car. Bond was set at $9,870 for the charges, and both Columbia and Escambia counties confirmed they would extradite Byrd to face charges there.

Hudson, driving a van, ran through numerous stop signs at a high rate of speed and drove through the yards of several residences before losing control, sideswiping a parked vehicle and then hitting a ditch and turning over on the drivers side. Hudson tried to escape the officer by running once he left the van, but the officer was able to detain him by his shirt until several other officers arrived and assisted in taking him to the ground to be handcuffed. Officers found crack cocaine in a cigarette pack on Hudson, and a computer check revealed he has never had a valid drivers license.

Lamic Malay Vanderpoel, 59, of Jacksonville was arrested May 16 by Starke police for two charges of larceny, fraudinsufficient funds in checking and on an out-of-county warrant from Duval for probation violation on an original charge of worthless checks. According to the arrest report, Vanderpoel went to a yard sale in Starke in April and purchased two pieces of jewelry for $750, using a check to pay the owner. The owner of the jewelry called Vanderpoel several days later to let her know she had more jewelry for sale, and Vanderpoel went back to Starke on April 15 to the victims home. After looking at the jewelry, Vanderpoel agreed to purchase four pieces for $2,400. She told the victim she had to go to Lake City to meet her husband and get the agreed amount. After she left for Lake City, the owner realized Vanderpoel still had the jewelry on and tried to reach her on her cell phone for several days to no avail. Several days later, the owner was notified by her bank that the check for $750 from the yard sale was no good and she would be responsible for covering the funds from the check. SPD investigators were able to eventually locate most of the victims jewelry at several pawn shops in Jacksonville, and a month later, on May 16, Vanderpoel was interviewed about the jewelry. She claimed it was all a misunderstanding that she still had all the jewelry and would pay the victim once they agreed on an amount. When she was confronted by the investigator that the jewelry was in several pawn shops in Jacksonville, Vanderpoel admitted to pawning it all and trying to retrieve it all before going to Starke that day, but said she would still pay the victim.

He also told the investigator that he would eventually get the contraband from the female bathroom after a jail orderly collected the trash and sorted it at the jail laundry. The orderly would keep half the contraband and give Gatlin the other half. Gatlin was charged with two counts of conspiracy to smuggle contraband into a detention facility. Bond was set at $30,000 for the charges against Welch-Rowe. Felicia Stache Williams, 36, of Starke was arrested May 18 by Bradford deputies for smuggling contraband into a detention facility.

expense, less money borrowed on educational loans and/or less money to qualify for on a needs basis. Conversely, the short preparation and reliable employment suggests a faster recovery time for the expenditures. Additionally, the nursing program offers growth potential and the opportunity to qualify for that growth while working. In the 2003-04 school year, Clarence Desue was the technical centers director, and Reddish was the assistant director. Reddish wrote the LPN program application, which was accepted, and the first year of the program started in 2004. More to the point, the application and the course requirements were closely articulated with Santa Fe College. Consequently, students who complete the program can easily bridge over into the Santa Fe College registered nursing program, and the previously completed work greatly facilitates the students progress in that program. LPN.com puts the average annual RN salary in Florida at almost $60,000. The only downside to the LPN program is that its appeal has become well known, and entry, due to class size limitations, has also become competitive. The minimal qualifications for application to the program are as follows: Test of Adult Basic Education with an 11.0 gradelevel score. Test of Essential Academic Skills with an 11.0 grade-level score. Be at least 18 years of age. CPR card. Applications are accepted during the second semester and are due in March. High school students interested in a career in the health care fieldand especially the technical centers LPN programshould talk to the one of their high school or technical center counselors. These students would greatly benefit by enrolling in the Health Science Academy. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School senior Blake Richardson became the third baseball player in the Telegraph-Times-Monitor coverage area to sign a letter of intent with Trinity Baptist College, doing so during a May 15 ceremony in the KHHS media center. Its exciting, Richardson said. Ive always wanted to play baseball after high school. I didnt want that to be the end of it. Im just excited to play in college. Richardson will join Bradford High School seniors Wyatt Collins and David Hall, who signed letters of intent in April. They will be part of a brand new program, but a program that is hitting the ground running, according to head coach Jon Copeland, alluding to a competitive first-ever schedule. Were just glad to have Blake be a part of that, Copeland said. Were expecting some really, really good things from him. Of being a part of a first-year program, Richardson said, Itll be fun to start from scratch and just be able to work and get better. Richardson has been playing baseball since the age of 6. Hes always loved the sport, he said, and worked especially hard during his junior and senior years to put himself in position to get an opportunity at the next level. When I kept getting a bunch of emails from (Copeland), it really hit me that I had a good chance to go on to college, Richardson said. Keystone head coach Alan Mattox can attest to the amount of work Richardson has put in and said he was happy to see it pay off. Its really gratifying from a standpoint that Ive been able to watch Blake develop since his seventh-grade year, Mattox said. Mattox said he has seen Richardson develop into a mature player who is not only a tough out at the plate, but a standout on defense as well. I think just his anticipation of plays, Mattox said when asked what makes Richardson such a good defensive player. He sees the ball so well. He tracks the ball well and sees it off the bat really good. He gets to the point where he fields the ball and gets it out of his hand quickly. He cant wait to graduate from high school and get started as a player at the next level, Richardson said. Plus, he will be joined at the school by some of the players on his travel team. I have a bunch of friends going there, so its going to be fun, Richardson said. Mattox said the next level will bring better overall competition and a faster game, but he believes Richardson has what it takes to meet those challenges. With his work ethic, I see him having no problem adjusting to the higher level of play when he gets to college, Mattox said.

Findleys first powerlifting event was the USA Powerlifting Central Florida Open Championships, at which she set records for bench press, dead lift and overall total. That effort qualified her for the July 19-21, 2013, Raw/Unequipped National Powerlifting Championships. Findley placed first in her weight class and age division. In October 2013, Findley competed at the USA Powerlifting Southeastern USA Regional Championships, where she won the gold medal in 12 divisions and broke seven records. Sounds like a pretty good day, but Findley said, It wasnt my best meet at all. Though basically a newcomer to the sport, Findley told the Telegraph-Times-Monitor in 2013 she felt as if powerlifting was her destiny, saying, My dad was in it. I guess I just had a big interest in it for a long time. Shes certainly made her mark so far and is looking forward to doing so when she moves up in age division, which will happen when she turns 18 in December. Findley said she has no doubt shell set records during her first year of competition in the higher age division. The amount of weight shes been lifting is certainly impressive, but Griffis said whats just as impressive is the fact that Findley is up front about her faith. Not many kids are willing to stand up on a platform and say the reason theyre doing it is for God, that theyre wanting to please him, Griffis said. She does that. It makes you real proud of a kid whos like that. Competing at such events as the one in St. Croix costs money. A plane ticket for one to St. Croix costs $1,400, Findley said, plus she will need to pay for a hotel room and apparel that lifters are required to wear. In all, she will need approximately $5,000 for the St. Croix trip. Findley and Griffis are looking for sponsors or anyone who is willing to give any amount. Whatever theyre able to give, we dont care, Griffis said. The slightest little bit helps. The community has already supported Findley with previous competition costs, and for that, she and Griffis are grateful. Findley said the giving spirit especially when it comes to supporting youthis what makes the Lake Butler/Union County community so special. They help you out no matter what, Findley said. They put you before themselves. If you are interested in helping, please contact Findley at findley1lynn@gmail.com or Griffis at 352-494-1362. Who knows? You may be able to say you assisted in bringing a world championship to Union County. Griffis, for one, is confident that Findley can shine on the world stage. She never ceases to amaze me, Griffis said. LIFT Continued from 1B LPN Continued from 2B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Theyve been getting in shape and learning formations and plays since May 1. Now, the football players at Bradford, Keystone Heights and Union County high schools will get the chance to hit someone other than their teammates when the teams participate in games on Friday, May 23, at 7 p.m. Bradford will travel to Newberry for a three-team game that also includes Dunnellon, while Keystone will travel to St. Augustine to take on Menendez. Union will remain home, hosting Duval Charter. Last year, Keystone was the only one of the three teams to cap its spring with a win, though you could also say Unions varsity team came away a winner after a 6-6 tie against defending Class 2A champ University Christian. Daquin Buddy Edwards had a third-quarter touchdown run that put the Tigers up 6-0. University didnt score until the fourth quarter, which featured Union junior varsity players. The Indians played Menendez last spring as well, pulling out a 9-6 come-from-behind win on the last play of the game when Michael Carroll took a short Wyatt Harvin pass and turned it into a 21-yard touchdown. Keystone scored on its first possession of the game when J.J. Schofield kicked a 34-yard field goal. Bradfords varsity players didnt fare too well in a 35-23 loss to Fleming Island as the Eagles led 35-14 at the half, with four of their five scores covering 36 yards or more. The Tornadoes played mostly younger players in the second half, though varsity running back Travon Thomas had a 14-yard touchdown run in that half to finish the game with two scores. He had a 4-yard scoring run in the first half and finished the game with 59 yards on 10 carries. Quarterback Jacob Luke, who was 8-of-17 for 161 yards, threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Dinkins for Bradfords first score. Dinkins finished the game with six catches for 148 yards. Football teams end spring with May 23 games Enrollment into the Health Science Academy qualifies the students to take a series of high school elective classes, such as Medical Terminology, Cardio Technology, Respiratory Care, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. An additional benefit of the noted elective classes is that they can serve as college credit if the student passes a qualifying endof-class test. (In this regard, the noted Health academy elective classes are dual-enrollment classes.) Interestingly also, Chemistry and Anatomy can be taken as Health Academy classes. These two classes can serve double duty as required high school credit and dual-enrollment credit as well if the same end-of-class test is passed. Furthermore, college credit given for the above dual-enrollment classes carries no tuition. The perks of the Health Science Academy do not stop there. Once the Health Academy students graduate from the program and high school, they are certified phlebotomists and certified nursing assistants. Both of these health care professions are also highly employable. This could provide immediate employment for high school graduates and the ability to work part time while engaging in the LPN program or other collegiate health care programs. Salary. com puts the average annual CNA salary in the United States at about $30,000.

Tempest said. Considering what we had and that we were able to get third place in the state in our circuit that we compete in, we definitely had a strong showing. Tempest said giving the more advanced students opportunities that allow them to grow as musicians can also pay off for a schools entire band program. For example, Tempest said he saw one of the Bradford High School members of the Bradford Independent group showing other BHS students what he had learned from being part of that group. Its kind of infectious in a good way to the students around them, Tempest said. Tempest expressed his thanks to the administration at both Bradford High School and Bradford Middle School, where the majority of rehearsals were held. He also thanked the schools athletic directors for their help in the group being able to use the schools gymnasiums.
