CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Depending on your point of view, its long presence on U.S. 301 at the railroad crossing in Starke speaks to historic value or renders it invisible, but some are talking like a move of the cannon to a new location is a certainty. Steve Futch approached the Starke City Commission on May 20 saying the Florida Department of Transportation has talked with the Community Traffic Safety Team about moving the cannon. FDOT owns the property, and Futch said the cannon would be moved; the only question is where. Futch said they had approached Camp Blanding, trying to find out more about the cannons ownership and history, and while there could be a home for the cannon at the bases museum, the traffic committee and other groups would like it to remain in Starke over at the veterans memorial park, named for the late Charlie Schaefer, a veteran and former commissioner. Schaefer rallied the commission to get the park built and it was dedicated to him following his death. He is also believed to have played a role in the INSIDE: Travel Back to Armadillo Acres Southsides Swashbucklers BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1016 marked Memorial Day in Starke by inviting a 30-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, Senior Master Chief Raymond Hunt, to headline its annual ceremony. We gather here today for a memorial service to pay tribute to millions of United States servicemen and women; to those who have given their lives the ultimate sacrifice to defend the freedoms enjoyed by each of us here and our nation, he said. We pay tribute to those who have fallen on the battlefield and to all who have served and those who are currently serving in our nations armed forces. To that end, Hunt gave the crowd a history lesson, discussing some of the United States conflicts, beginning with World War II. More than 46 million soldiers and civilians perished, he said, many in circumstances of prolonged and horrifying cruelty. Many who lost their lives were only known to those who loved them, but in many cases, even those who would have remembered their loved ones were wiped out. Many can be named, and they have been. It is them and the unnamed men, women and children whose tragedy is the bitter legacy of war, he said. Nearly 3,000 Americans were killed or injured in the attack on Pearl Harbor, the day of infamy that drew the U.S. into the war. Our boys answered the call, Hunt said, reminding the crowd of some of the standout battles, including the Battle of the Bulge. With tens of thousands of soldier deaths, it was the largest loss of life of any single battle. Though caught by surprise by, the Allies defeated the German offensive. The battle was preceded several months before by the Normandy Invasion, which Hunt said was the largest naval armada and amphibious operation in history. Thousands of soldiers, sailors, paratroopers and airmen were killed, wounded, or captured and tortured. In 1945, U.S. Marines invaded Iwo Jima, and of the nearly 1,700 involved in the initial battle, more than 1,500 were killed or injured. In the 25 days it took to secure the island, Hunt said Americans killed 21,000 but suffered more than 28,000 casualties. (U.S. Marines) left behind the Pacifics largest cemeteries, nearly 6,800 graves in all; mounds with their stars and crosses. Thousands of families would not have the solace of a body to bid farewell, he said. But the result of the battle was thousands of lives saved when distressed bombers were able to land safely on the island, he said. Moving to the Korean War, Hunt said 55,000 Americans perished, with one of the most deadly battles being known as Chosen Reservoir. Not only did the U.S. Marines have the enemy to fight, but the elements of nature, he said, pointing to below zero temperatures and the lack of food and supplies. However, these individuals fought diligently and honorably with courage and valor, and many survived, Korea and Vietnam are both thought of as Raymond Hunt (right), who served the country in the Navy and the county in the Writing scores up; third-grade reading, too BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County School District is trumpeting its strong performance in the first FCAT testing results released this year those for the writing test as well as the third-grade scores in reading and math. Even Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart took note of the numbers, which showed 9 percent more thirdgraders in Bradford scoring at or above grade level in reading, and 1 percent more doing so in math. The writing improvements noted were even more dramatic. At the middle school, 22 percent more eighth-graders passed the writing exam, and 28 percent more 10 th -graders passed at the high school. Fourth-grade writers improved 2 percent, meaning the district improved in all five areas of measurement released last week. Since 2012 we have worked to make the necessary changes to improve student performance in Bradford County. Today, we can see the fruits of our efforts in the impressive scores our students achieved, said Superintendent Chad Farnsworth. Our students, parents, teachers, administrators and all district personnel work tirelessly to provide a sound learning environment and quality educational opportunities for students, I thank them for their hard work and passion for education. Carol Clyatt, director of accountability and special programs for the district, noted some of the strategies used to tackle writing. Since scores were so low last year, we created a very specific plan, she said. Teachers were trained in how FCAT writing responses are scored. Using sample essays, they were able to see differences at each scoring level with regard to the areas measured, including focus, organization, support and conventions (spelling and grammar). Teachers met monthly with reading coaches to review the progress of their students and get support in writing instruction. In the classroom, there was also increased practice with writing prompts. This year, the state designated 3.5 out of 6 the passing score students needed

Bible Club returns to Brooker Elementary with a splash After eight years of not having an after-school Bible Club, the school and Pastor Paul Samson of Brooker Baptist Church were able to bring back this popular opportunity for students. Pastor Samson meets with interested thirdthrough fifthgrade students once a week to share prayer, learn more about the Bible and build Christian character. The culmination for this years club activities was a field trip to In His Wakes. Established by world champion waterskier, Kristi Overton, In His Wakes helps kids learn to get off the dock with God as they learn to swim, waterski, wakeboard and tube. Twenty-six students attended and gained confidence, selfesteem and newfound hope to face lifes challenges not to mention that they had an absolute blast! Several of the students were non-swimmers, one had never been swimming in a lake, two had never been in boat, and they all learned to ski for the first time! Donations from area churches and the community made this opportunity possible for the students. Brooker Bible Club hopes to make this an annual event. Submitted by Principal Debbie Parmenter.

Thursday, May 29, 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. Snakes alive! Hello neighbor! We have had a warm, wet spring and snakes are moving, searching for food. That is why our topic for this week is preventing encounters between people and snakes. The most effective way to prevent a person from being bitten by a snake is to prevent them from interacting with a snake. An effective and inexpensive way to discourage snakes from entering your property is to erect a silt fence barrier. Silt fence is the black fabric used around construction sites to control erosion. The material comes in rolls with wooden stakes already stapled to the fabric and is easy to erect. Silt fence is available at most construction and building supply outlets. We recommend burying the silt fence 4-6 inches to prevent snakes from crawling under the barrier. If constructing a complete barrier around the yard is not possible, silt fence can be erected at specific locations where snakes are most likely to access the yard, such as near wetlands. In these instances, the ends of the barrier should curve back away from the yard for at least 10 feet to direct snakes away from your property. We do not recommend using any type of chemical snake repellent, as they have not been proven effective. Additional ways to discourage snakes from yards is to make these areas less attractive to snakes. Snakes have many predators, and prominent among them are birds of prey. Hawks and other raptors cause snakes to avoid areas that lack protective cover. Keeping grass and other vegetation cut short, removing brush piles and other debris will make the area less attractive to snakes. Snakes are important to the Florida environment. They are eaten by many animals, including alligators, hawks and wading birds. Snakes also eat animals such as mice and rats, insects, frogs and other snakes. This cycle is part of the balance of nature. We need to respect all the animals that live in nature, including snakes. If you find a snake in your yard, give the snake space and do not attempt to pick it up or step on it. Remember this phrase about snakes: Leave it be and it wont hurt me. Statistics show that people who are attempting to handle, harm or kill snakes are the most likely victims of snakebite. The cottonmouth is the most aquatic of Floridas venomous snakes and occurs throughout the state. Several species of harmless water snakes are often mistaken as cottonmouths. Although water snakes are not venomous, they tend to be aggressive and quick to bite. To avoid confusion and the potential for being bitten, it is best to leave all water snakes alone.

Taking a look at individual elementary school performance, the mean scores for fourth-graders fell below passing. But Southside, Lawtey and Brooker elementary schools all had a higher percentage of students passing the writing test. At Southside, the percentage rose 12 points. At 53 percent, it was the only school with more than half of its fourth-graders passing. Lawtey rose 13 points to 49 percent. Brooker rose 16 points to 39 percent. Passing percentages were down 6 points at Hampton Elementary and 11 points at Starke Elementary, although Starke still had the second highest percentage of students passing. The mean score was down there, however, as well as at Lawtey and Hampton. The mean writing scores were up at the high school, where 64 percent of 10 th -graders passed compared to 28 percent last year, and at the middle school, were 47 percent of eighth-graders passed compared to 25 percent last year. The scores with the most weight are arguably the thirdgrade reading scores because students who score at Level 1 out of five are automatically retained in the third grade unless they improve enough over the summer to be promoted. The mean score in reading was up 5 points at Hampton Elementary, and the percentage of students scoring Level 3 or above that is at or above grade level jumped 25 points to 75 percent. Brookers percentage was up 24 points to 67 percent, and its mean score rose 8 points. Third-grade reading scores were up at Lawtey and Southside, too. Fifty-eight percent of students scored Level 3 or above at Lawtey, an increase of 8 points, and the mean score rose 2 points. At Southside, the mean score was up just 1 point, but 51 percent scored at or above grade level, an increase of 8 points. Starke Elementary maintained its percentage of students at or above Level 3 in reading 53 percent but its mean score dropped 2 points. The school also saw an increase in the percentage of students reading at Level 1, with a 12-point jump to 28 percent. Lawteys Level 1 percentage jumped 13 points to 21 percent. District wide, 21 percent of third-graders will need reading remediation in order to be promoted to fourth grade, but 57 percent were satisfactory or better readers, an increase of 9 percent. Mean scores in third-grade math rose at Southside (7 points), Brooker (13 points) and Hampton (5 points). They were down at Starke (10 points) and Lawtey (6 points). Brooker by far had the highest percentage scoring at or above grade level 78 percent and that was an increase of 43 points. Southsides percentage climbed 7 points to 40 percent. Percentages of Level 3 or above students in math fell 10 points at Starke, 23 points at Lawtey and 3 points at Hampton. Districtwide 46 percent of third-graders were satisfactory or better in math, an increase of 1 point. Lake Butler Elementary maintained a high percentage of Level 3 or above third-graders in math, while Keystone Heights Elementary dropped 11 percent. Keystone third-graders were down 2 percent in reading, and Lake Butlers group was down 8 percent. Lake Butler and Keystone fourth-graders declined in writing, but there was improvement in the eighth and 10 th grades.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, May 29, 2014 cannon being in town as well. According to Futch, FDOT wants to spruce up the property where South Temple Avenue branches off from South Walnut Street. The location is seen as an entrance to downtown, and there has been talk about erecting signage there welcoming people to the city. Whether the cannon should stay at its current location or be moved has been debated in the past. Last October, Bill Dampier appeared before the commission to champion its current placement. At the time, no proposal had been made to the commission, but Dampier said the drums were beating. Dampier said veterans have discussed the cannon and believe it represents a large part of the communitys history. Moreover, he said they believe replacing the cannon with signage would pose a traffic hazard. Any attempt to place something there to draw attention from the road is a safety problem, he said. Mayor Carolyn Spooner told Futch that when the issue had come up in the past, veterans opposed the move. Futch said that hadnt always been the case, and at one time he was working with Schaefer to get the cannon relocated to the park. Since then, he agreed, the sentiment has been to leave the cannon alone. But he said the veterans who feel that way dont have any more ownership than the community leaders who would like to see that property used for another purpose. At veterans park, Futch said the cannon could be appreciated and photographed. Where it is, it cannot be easily accessed. Chief Jeff Johnson, who is also active with the Community Traffic Safety Committee, confirmed FDOTs intentions. The only thing standing in the way is uncertainty about who to notify that the cannon is being moved. As soon as they find out who to send the letter to, they are going to move this cannon, Johnson said. Anyone opposing that needs to talk to FDOT, he said. Commissioner Danny Nugent said the American Legion and Boy Scouts maintain the cannon property, and since FDOT recently removed the landscaping, they were making plans to replant it. Futch said someone could do a better job maintaining it at the park than its current location. Its just going to be a rusty heap there one day and nobodys going to really care whether its there or not, he said. Plus, the park is named for Schaefer. Using common sense, I dont know why anyone would object to it. We would just like to see it put somewhere where it will be preserved, Futch said. Nevertheless, he said he would reach out to the veterans groups for input. The city is going to seek more information on FDOTs plans for property. Futch was also at the meeting to request that the commission accept the donation of permanent trashcans for the Downtown Square from the Starke Kiwanis. Continued from 1A forgotten wars, Hunt said, but with so many lives sacrificed, including more than 58,000 in Vietnam, they should not be. Hunt also discussed the war on terrorism, spurred by the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center. During the wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, troops have faced a new threat, he said improvised explosive devices that have killed and maimed thousands. In addition to wounded bodies that will never be the same, servicemen and women suffer minds troubled by the atrocities they have observed. Hunt gave special acknowledgment for the unsung heroes of every conflict the medics. Unarmed, equipped with first aid kits, they would run through enemy machinegun fire, mortar or artillery fire, in order to render aid and assist the wounded, he said. The horrifying and terrifying experiences sustained by all of those individuals cannot be adequately put into words. He also remembered four local veterans who recently passed away, including husband and wife Dave and Christine Peace who served in the Navy, Harold Epps who served in the Army National Guard, and Joseph Daniels, who served in the Army, Marine Corps and Air Force. Hunt closed by asking everyone to honor veterans every day. Whenever you see a service man or woman on the street or in a store, thank them for their service to our country. Thank them for keeping you free when you go to bed at night. Thank God for allowing you to live in this great nation, he said. Hunt, himself, gave 30 years to the U.S. Navy, enlisting in 1952. In 1975, he moved from active status to the reserves, and when he retired in 1982, he had attained the rate of senior chief gunners mate. His service wasnt through, however. Hunt went to work for the Bradford County Sheriffs Office, where he worked for 18 years, first as jail administrator, then as a deputy sheriff. Hunts career in the navy included time aboard battleships in the Korean War, destroyer duty, and submarine rescue and salvage. He was a gunners mate on board the U.S.S. Boston, then in the late 1960s, he was training administrator and acting commander of a medium-sized naval and marine corps training unit in Texas. Next, he was naval advisor to U.S. Military Assistance Command in South Vietnam. He was then stationed in Charleston on the U.S.S. Cone. In 1971, on his second tour in Vietnam, he was assigned to the gun line on the U.S.S. Cone, which was recognized as firing the last shot in the conflict north of the demilitarized zone in June 1973. His numerous awards and decorations include the Silver Star Medal, Bronze Star Medal, Navy and Marine Commendation Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, Combat Action Ribbon and many more. Hunt has been married to the former Mary Fraser of Albany, Ga., for 58 years, and they have two daughters, eight grandchildren and two greatgranddaughters. Continued from 1A

I ran my thumb across it, Crawford said. My heart rushed with memories from the past. Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, May 29, 2014 News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region FEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Retired Army Col. Jim Crawford will never forget Robert Liddell, a man who put duty to his country ahead of early retirement. Liddell never made it to retirement, making the ultimate sacrifice when he was killed in combat during the Vietnam War. Today, I honor and remember 1 st Sgt. Robert Liddell, Crawford said. I remember what an honor it was to serve with himsuch a great soldier. Crawford was the keynote speaker at the Camp Blanding Joint Training Centers Memorial Day ceremony. He referenced the book of Ecclesiastes in describing the mixture of emotions that come with remembering those who gave their lives in service to this countrythere is a time to weep for them, but also a time to remember sharing a laugh with them; a time when those who would become true heroes could be embraced, and a time when they are not around to embrace. There was a time to love them, and that time will be forever, Crawford said. There was a time for war, and they gave us a time for peace. These times, like today, we honor them by posting flags of the United States on their hallowed graves for the supreme sacrifice made for you and me. Most likely, each of you, though, has someone special in mind who you would like to honor. For Crawford, that special person is Liddell. Crawford was assigned to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where he commanded a signal company of 172 men preparing to go to Vietnam. I began to receive young soldiers from basic training with little or no experience at all, Crawford said. An old sergeant once told Crawford, Son, there are no heroes in combat. You only react based upon how well you are trained. Crawford said that became his motto. With that in mind, he said he was in great need of a good first sergeant to step in for one who was going to retire. Crawford turned to a friend of his who had experience in VietnamLiddell. The position would be a promotion for Liddell, but he already had 17 years of service under his belt and was preparing to retire. Liddell had a family that included two young daughters. I would not have felt bad if he had turned me down, Crawford said. Liddell, though, accepted the position and helped Crawford train the men of the signal company. Crawford said Liddell was a great right-hand man to me. They deployed to Vietnam in June 1969. Liddell was killed a couple of months later. He returned to his grieving wife and daughters, Crawford Giving a salute during the playing of Taps after placing a wreath in honor of fallen military men and women are (foreground, l-r) Col.

youre in downtown Paris or in Starke, Fla., or in Waco, Texas. Former Starke Mayor Steve Futch attended the original shows opening with his wife, Cindy, in 2006. In a June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story, Futch said he wished a fictitious name had been chosen for the city in question, but he added that sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself. It was still enjoyable and entertaining, Futch was quoted as saying in the June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story. Im glad we saw it. Acres. In fact, Caldwell said the town should probably be changed depending upon where the production is playing. For example, her hometown of Waco, Texas, wouldve been the smalltown setting when the musical was performed in Dallas. Its not where the story takes place thats important. Its the story itself. In regard to The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, that story centers around Darlene, the Scrooge-like character who undergoes a transformation, thanks to a visit from the spirit of her deceased fianc. Its really about watching Darlene, Caldwell said. Shes angry. She lost the love of her life. He had to come back and give her permission to move on without him. Thats as universal as you can get. I dont care if being inhabited by an ancient spirit. James said, In rehearsals, when we all got to the ending, we were like, What? The tree is possessed? Choi said the key for the actors is to portray their characters as genuinely believing every absurd thing thats happening around them. Fellow actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed. You have to commit to it because the more sincere you are with all of it, the funnier it makes it, Haldeman said. Mark Chambers, who starred in the original The Great American Trailer Park Musical as Norbert, returns to play Jackie, a proprietor of a business that brings pancakes and sex appeal together. Despite that, he said he believes the sequel is less risqu, referring to the fact that the original musical featured a stripper as one of its main characters. Still, a comedy that features a song entitled, (Expletive) It, Its Christmas, is probably not for everybody. Hippodrome Managing Director Jessica Hurov referenced a June 7, 2006, Gainesville Sun story about the original musical in which someone was quoted as saying, If you have a sense of humor, you should definitely go. If you dont, if youre stuck-up or offended easily, you shouldnt. Hurov said The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical will reward those with a sense of humor. Its raucous, but heartfelt. You have to come, have a drink, sit back and let it wash over you, Hurov said. So, why should you go spend Christmas with the residents of Armadillo Acres? Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, said, We do, I believe, have the biggest Christmas spirit of any neighborhood. Marissa Toogood, who portrays Pickles, quickly added, And maybe the biggest hair. Show times for the discount previews are 7 p.m. on May 28 and 8 p.m. on May 29.

Caldwell said it takes a look at how a person can overcome a tragic event and move on with life. The show is about ones life journey. You get two choices when you grow older: You either turn out sometimes kind of cynical and bitter and negative, or you kind of become wiser and more accepting and more open, Caldwell said. I think we get to watch that happen with (Darlene). Sounds like serious stuff and there are touching moments in the productionbut youre probably not going to end up crying, unless its from laughing too hard. The writing is so crazy, and there are so many ridiculous things that are happening, said Grace Choi, who portrays Darlene. Alec James, who plays the character Rufus, said in a script full of crazy ideas, its hard to say that one is any crazier than the other, though there is that matter of the Christmas tree 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 29, 2014 Florida Twin TheatreAll Seats $6.00 Before 6 p.m. 964-5451* CLOSED MON & TUES SCREEN 1 SCREEN 2 STARTS FRIDAY Visit us on-line at www.FloridaTwinTheatre.comFri: 8:00 Sat: 5:05, 8:00 Sun: 5:30 Wed.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If Charles Dickens awoke from a kegnog bender and decided to start writing, perhaps his classic A Christmas Carol wouldve turned out like the Hippodrome Theatres latest production, The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. The sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical opens Friday, May 30, with discount previews scheduled for Wednesday, May 28, and Thursday, May 29. Characters Betty, Lin (thats short for Linoleum) and Pickles return for what the Gainesville theater describes as a cat-fightin, sunworshippin, chair-throwin, good-ole festive Hipp summer musical good time. Director Lauren Caldwell said when it was learned there was a sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical, which was the best-attended show in Hippodrome history during both of its runs, there was no hesitation in wanting to present it for a summer run. But Christmas in summer? Yes, the show may have allusions to A Christmas Carol with the transformation of character Darlene, brought about with the help of spirits and a dose of electricitybut there is more to the show than Trailer Park Musical sequel: Christmas hilarity in summer BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Is it a sense of pride when your hometown is the setting for a comedic stage production that takes place in a trailer park? If youre from Starke, thats the case with the Hippodrome Theatres The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, which runs from May 30 through June 22. Its the sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical. As is the case with the original, the setting is Starke at the fictional Armadillo Acres mobile-home community. Director Lauren Caldwell said there was a cautious curiosity when it came to observing how Starke residents would react to the original musical, but in the end, they seemed to enjoy it. The Great American Trailer Park Musical proved to be the best-attended show in the history of the Hippodrome during its two runs. The majority of the audiences were people from Starke, Caldwell said. Still, Caldwell said there is no reason for anyone who didnt see the original show to be wary of how Starke and its people are portrayed in the sequel. The good thing about it is these people arent being made fun of in anyway, Caldwell said. Actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed, saying the musical is genuine and heartfelt, with actor Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, adding, Its about people and family. Actor Grace Choi, who portrays Darlene, said the characters have their quirks, which are accentuated for comedic purposes, but added, It has nothing to do with it being in Starke. I feel that was just the location it happened to be. David Nehls and Betsy Kelso wrote both trailer-park musicals. It was Nehls who decided upon using Starke as the location for Armadillo Acres. Aside from the stage backdrop, which includes a few familiar Starke sights, such as the bull outside of Grannies Restaurant, neither musical contains anything that is Starke specific. Either musical would still work if a different town was chosen as the site of Armadillo KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR ON THE 1 st Legals

He added that he anticipates those same playerswho will be sophomores next yearcarrying much of the workload for the offense. Theyve got to grow up in a hurry, he said of the ninthgraders. Tonight was a good test for them. Dickinson added that as in prior years, summer conditioning will likely determine the destiny of the team. He said his tight endsall ninth-graders particularly need to bulk up during the summer. On defense, Dickinson said his players got to the ball well, but missed too many tackles. He also said fatigue may have played a role in the second half. He attributed that to the fact that he does not focus on conditioning in the spring as much as he does in the fall.

Beck will race in a varsity four-crew boat with coxswain. JUs womens rowing program capped a successful spring schedule with its first-ever Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships. Just a few weeks previously, head coach Jim Mitchells team maneuvered the waters of Sarasota and was crowned the Florida Intercollegiate Rowing Association champions. With four top finishes and just one runner-up, the Dolphins held a 29-point advantage over Nova Southeastern, the number-one ranked Division II national champions.

She had the honor of making JUs Davis College of Business deans list the last two semesters. KHHS grad Beck to BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Keystone Heights drove to the Pedro Menendez 1-yard line, but could not convert at the end of the first half in a 21-0 loss to the Falcons in a spring football classic on May 23. Menendez first scored midway through the second quarter on a 29-yard pass from Sebastian Valone to Jayson Sowden. The play completed a 12-play, 50yard drive. The Falcons scored next on a 5-yard run by quarterback Adam Taylor with 3:22 left in the third quarter. Seth Bradshaw completed the nights scoring with a 5-yard run midway through the final quarter. Aaron Melfi kicked extra points following all three touchdowns under modified rules for spring games that eliminated punt and kickoff returns, and prohibited defensive rushes during kicking plays. Keystones best opportunity for a score came at the end of the first half after the Indians drove 70 yards to the Menendez 10. The drive featured runs of 4, 10, 6, 4, 5, 4 and 4 yards by Anton Noble and pass completions of 12, 10, 9, 10 and 5 yards by quarterback Wyatt Harvin. Four of the completions went to Brighton Gibbs and one to Tyler Rickets. On fourth-and-1 from the Menendez 10, Harvin completed his sixth pass of the drive to Noble, but the Indian running back failed to reach the goal line as time ran out. However, a roughing-the-passer penalty gave Keystone one more chance from the Menendez 1 with no time left on the clock. On the final play of the half, the Falcon defense stopped Noble short of the goal line after he took a handoff from Harvin. Noble finished the night with BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Quarterback Caleb Cox and running back Taz Worrell combined for five touchdowns in the Union County High School football teams 42-7 win over visiting Duval Charter in a spring classic on May 23. Duval Charter was able to move the ball at times on the Union defense, driving past the Tigers 25-yard line five times. However, only one of those drives resulted in a score, with Union forcing a fumble on one and a turnover on downs twice. On the fifth trip inside the Union 25, the Panthers actually made it inside the 10-yard line before time expired. The Panthers had the games opening possession, which began with Unions Joseph Merriex making a tackle for a minimal gain. However, Duval picked up a couple of first downs, including one on a run by quarterback Chris Brown that converted a third-and-19 play. Duval picked up another first down on a personal foul penalty, which gave the Panthers possession at the Union 19. They fumbled the ball, however, with the Tigers Dairon Alexander recovering. Isaiah Johnson and Darion Robinson had big runs to get the Tigers moving on offense, with one of Robinsons runs resulting in a first-and-goal at the 8. Robinson added a 7-yard run after that to set up a 1-yard scoring run by Cox. Khris Wimpy caught a pass from Cox on the two-point conversion to put the Tigers up 8-0. Zach Lee gave the home crowd something to shout about BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High Schools defense was victimized by big plays, while its offense struggled to put itself in scoring position in 21-8 and 14-0 losses to Dunnellon and Newberry, respectively, in a spring jamboree in Newberry on May 23. Each team played each other for two quarters. The Tornadoes had five touchdowns scored against them, with all but one covering at least 31 yards. Offensively, Bradford drove inside the opposing 25-yard line only three times and squandered a scoring opportunity at the 4-yard line in its loss to Newberry. In the jamborees first two quarters, Dunnellons Kane Parks caught three passes for 129 yardsall of them touchdowns in leading the Tigers to the 21-8 win over Bradford. Dunnellon built a 21-0 lead before Bradford scored with 2:26 to play. Parks, who also rushed for 30 yards on three carries, got the Tigers moving early when he ripped off a 16-yard run on the first play from scrimmage. Three plays later, Parks took a short pass from Dante White and turned it into a 45-yard touchdown. The PAT put Dunnellon up 7-0 just 1:08 into the game. Bradfords defense fared better the next time it was on the field, with Jarvis Desue and Dequan Blackshear breaking up pass plays that forced the Tigers to punt. Bradford drove past midfield when quarterback Jacob Luke scrambled for a 10-yard gain to the Dunnellon 45, but the Tigers dropped Desue for a 4-yard loss before sacking Luke for a 3-yard loss. Trevor Shannahan and Dawson Watson combined to make a tackle for a 2-yard loss at the start of Dunnellons next offensive series, but Tigers quarterback White, who finished 4-of-5 for 140 yards, hit Parks in stride along the sideline for a 75-yard touchdown and a 14-0 Dunnellon lead with 3:16 remaining in the first quarter. The Tornadoes would drive past midfield again on Chris Barrons 11-yard reception, but Bradfords offense couldnt over come two sacks of Luke for a total of 16 yards. Dunnellon running back Joshua Williams spun out of one tackle and ran through a couple of defenders in the open field en route to a 57-yard gain to the Tigers build 30-0 lead, defeat Duval Charter 42-7 Tornadoes fall to Dunnellon, Brighton Gibbs defenders after yard pass from in the second Tonya Gibbs.

Birth: Socials Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Dear Editor: With all due respect to Malcolm Hills letter, May 22. 2014, Support NRA, Second Amendment., I nevertheless found it an odd and confusing presentation of the First, Second and Fourth amendments to our constitution. No, Mr. Hill, the First amendment does not give us the right to say anything and everything we want without somebody in authority telling us we cant. Aside from libel and Previous letter confusing take on amendments Dear Editor: I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation to each and every one who attended the Memorial Day service at Veterans Park and Camp Blanding on Monday. Your attendance and kind attention to our Memorial Service proves your respect for our men and women in service. To you who made contributions to the VFW Poppy fund, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for when you display the poppy, it shows your respect for all of our fallen who paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. And to the young lady who drew a picture of our American flag and presented it to me, thanking me for my service, thank you. I will cherish it as I do other honors bestowed upon me. Respectfully, Thanks for Memorial Day slander laws, we are not allowed to indulge in hate speech without facing legal and/or economic consequences. Then, Mr. Hill informs us that the Fourth amendment says that we can gang up anywhere and anytime and gang up with Second Amendment and give the devil or anybody as much hell as we care to without fear of reprisal from the government. Huh?? The Fourth amendment deals solely with a persons right to be free of arrest, or seizure of property without a warrant based on probable cause. I suspect the writer confused the Fourth with the First amendment and its guaranties of free assembly for purposes of protest. Aside from that error, the ganging up language could hardly be called constitutional, implying as it does vigilante or mob justice. Considering these less than scholarly assertions, Mr. Hill then has the temerity to suggest that the reader is not thinking and have your head up the wrong place. Following these elegant observations, Mr. Hill, it seems apparent it gets to the meat of his letter i.e.: that the Second amendment, giving right of gun ownership (because as we know all gun owners are part of a wellregulated militia, including the disturbed individual who use their weapons to kill innocent people) is protecting us from Big Bad Government. That kind of mindset does not square very well with his praise of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution, the latter the very foundation of the government he rails against. Arnold Harris Lawtey Dear Editor: On Flag Day, June 14, we commemorate the adoption of the American flag. For more than 200 years, Old Glory has served as a symbol of our nations freedom and as a source of pride for our citizens. In patriotic parades and musical salutes, we support our local military units and recognize the significance of the stars and stripes.

with a thin belly held in the accompanying photograph by Caleb Manning is obviously a post-spawn bass. The same bass caught a few weeks ago would have weighed considerably larger. From now through next spring, the bass weights will be smaller. This will be not only because the fish will not be full of the large roe, but also because they will be much more reclusive in deeper water with thicker cover. Through last weekend, our local weather fostered a little chill that some fishermen blamed for a less-than-great May full moon for shellcrackers. Apparently, bluegills made a heavier showing. On the last full moon, Jim Thornton of Lake City fished Sampson Lake for bedding breakup. The Tornadoes, though, missed a golden scoring opportunity when Luke hooked up with Barron for a 75-yard pass to the Newberry 4-yard line. Desue gained a yard on a first-down play from there before being dropped for a 5-yard loss on second down. Luke was sacked for a 4-yard loss before tossing an incompletion to Jeffers in the end zone on a fourth-down play. Bradford put itself in good field position again on a 23-yard reception by Cody Tillman to the Newberry 25. Desue gained another 2 yards before Luke was sacked twice, forcing the Tornadoes into a fourth-and-20 play, which was unsuccessful. Dejwon Howard moved the Panthers past midfield on the ensuing series with a 12-yard run to the Bradford 40. Franklin broke free on a scoring run from there, with Files PAT putting Newberry up 7-0 with 6:49 to play. Bradford went three-andout on its next opportunity. The Panthers the put together a four-play scoring drive that was capped by Franklins 31-yard touchdown run.

They were held to minus-3 yards rushing when factoring in three sacks for a loss of 26 yards. Barron finished with the one reception for 75 yards. Bradford 8. That set up Kobie Jones 5-yard touchdown pass to Parks. Bradfords offense did generate some big plays on the following series, with Desue and Don Jeffers catching passes for gains of 17 and 9 yards, respectively. A 5-yard reception by Barron gave Bradford a thirdand-2 at the Dunnellon 26, but Luke was sacked for a loss of 12 yards.

Desue followed the fourthdown play with an 11-yard run before Luke scrambled for a 10-yard gain. That set up Lukes 1-yard touchdown plunge with 2:26 to play. Bradford added two points on a pass from Luke to Jeffers to cap the scoring at 21-8. Luke finished with 8-of-11 completions for 79 yards, with Barron catching four passes for 35 yards and Desue catching two for 32 yards. Desue had 53 all-purpose yards.

Continued from 3B touchdown against Dunnellon. Fins, Fur & Tails The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is currently considering changes to the regulations that apply to the harvesting of largemouth bass. Presently, the bag limit for largemouth bass caught south and east of the Suwannee River is five fish over 14 inches. In an effort to increase the population of larger bass, the commission is proposing a change that would continue to allow five keeper bass, but only one would be allowed to be over 16 inches. One obvious conflict is that the regulation would run counter to the objective of all bass tournaments, which is to weigh as many large fish as possible. The solution will be FWC considers change in bass harvests to obtain an exemption for each tournament. This is not currently required if the tournament uses the same size limits specified by commission. When questioned, a FWC representative in Lake City indicated that every tournament, including the small, open tournaments, would require exemptions. The representative was, however, reassuring in that multiple exemptions could be obtained in one online setting. Joey Tyson, who organizes the Bald Eagle tournaments, suggested the process would not be a significant obstruction. Tyson indicated that the most significant adjustment to the changes would be the feeling by non-tournament fishermen that they are limited on the harvest amount. Outdoors outlook The 7-plus-pound bass the big bass of the Tournament.

Today, I remember him and all the others whose names are on that wall and on black, granite walls around our country, Crawford said. Prior to his speaking engagement at the Camp Blanding ceremony, Crawford was interviewed by a Jacksonville TV station and asked why a Memorial Day ceremony should be held at Camp Blanding. Crawford said the short TV interview didnt give him a chance to fully answer that question, but he shared with the Memorial Day ceremony crowd just why Camp Blanding is so special. Camp Blanding has been a large part of his life, Crawford said. It was a place where the Lake Butler native enjoyed picnics and boating while growing up, but it also served as the place where Crawford went through basic training when he enlisted in the Florida Army National Guard on Dec. 13, 1956. During World War II, this place was also a very special place for many soldiers, Crawford said. It was one of the largest training bases in America and in the South. Camp Blanding was the training site for nine Army divisions and 16 special-weapons units. After they deployed, it turned into an infantry replacement training center. I read in the history it was a big training center. They had 44 battalionsI cant quite comprehend thatat Camp Blanding.

Camp Blanding has been important in todays times as well, with eight deployments to Afghanistan beginning there. Its still a hallowed and honored place, Crawford said. Following his speech, Crawford and Col. Dwayne Jarriel, Camp Blandings post commander, placed a wreath in honor of those who died in service. The wreath was placed before a downrange bootsrifle-helmet monument. Lt. Col. Gray Johnson, Camp Blandings operations manager, described the monument to the crowd, saying, Those are authentic World War II and Korean boots. The weapon is an M-14 from Vietnam. The headgear is a Kevlar helmet, which we started using in Desert Storm. In closing, Johnson said, Memorial Day is a very special day. I know I am preaching to the choir because youre here. Its not just the start of summer. Its not just the start of the barbecue season. Its a day we set aside to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Jim Lewis, Warren Carver, Robert Carver, Jamie Carver, Jeff Carver, Jim Ward, Gene Tannner and Lance Williams made their annual trip to Dead Lake, south of Palatka, in May. Warren Carver indicated they were less successful this year, but he was careful not to complain by saying they did OK. Townsend Strickland specified that the May bluegill spawn on Kingsley Lake was scattered, but heavy. He also indicated he saw few shellcrackers. Some of these local bream fishermen seem to think that the shellcracker spawn will be heavier in June and that the bluegills will cluster bed on the May 28 new moon and again on the following full moon. Some unclustered bluegill beds should be available most of the remaining summer. Saltwater action seems to be settling into its summer trends. East coast surf reports include catches of whiting and blues. Cobia and kings are also reported to be around shore reefs.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Depending on your point of view, its long presence on U.S. 301 at the railroad crossing in Starke speaks to historic value or renders it invisible, but some are talking like a move of the cannon to a new location is a certainty. Steve Futch approached the Starke City Commission on May 20 saying the Florida Department of Transportation has talked with the Community Traffic Safety Team about moving the cannon. FDOT owns the property, and Futch said the cannon would be moved; the only question is where. Futch said they had approached Camp Blanding, trying to find out more about the cannons ownership and history, and while there could be a home for the cannon at the bases museum, the traffic committee and other groups would like it to remain in Starke over at the veterans memorial park, named for the late Charlie Schaefer, a veteran and former commissioner. Schaefer rallied the commission to get the park built and it was dedicated to him following his death. He is also believed to have played a role in the INSIDE: Travel Back to Armadillo Acres Southsides Swashbucklers BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1016 marked Memorial Day in Starke by inviting a 30-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, Senior Master Chief Raymond Hunt, to headline its annual ceremony. We gather here today for a memorial service to pay tribute to millions of United States servicemen and women; to those who have given their lives the ultimate sacrifice to defend the freedoms enjoyed by each of us here and our nation, he said. We pay tribute to those who have fallen on the battlefield and to all who have served and those who are currently serving in our nations armed forces. To that end, Hunt gave the crowd a history lesson, discussing some of the United States conflicts, beginning with World War II. More than 46 million soldiers and civilians perished, he said, many in circumstances of prolonged and horrifying cruelty. Many who lost their lives were only known to those who loved them, but in many cases, even those who would have remembered their loved ones were wiped out. Many can be named, and they have been. It is them and the unnamed men, women and children whose tragedy is the bitter legacy of war, he said. Nearly 3,000 Americans were killed or injured in the attack on Pearl Harbor, the day of infamy that drew the U.S. into the war. Our boys answered the call, Hunt said, reminding the crowd of some of the standout battles, including the Battle of the Bulge. With tens of thousands of soldier deaths, it was the largest loss of life of any single battle. Though caught by surprise by, the Allies defeated the German offensive. The battle was preceded several months before by the Normandy Invasion, which Hunt said was the largest naval armada and amphibious operation in history. Thousands of soldiers, sailors, paratroopers and airmen were killed, wounded, or captured and tortured. In 1945, U.S. Marines invaded Iwo Jima, and of the nearly 1,700 involved in the initial battle, more than 1,500 were killed or injured. In the 25 days it took to secure the island, Hunt said Americans killed 21,000 but suffered more than 28,000 casualties. (U.S. Marines) left behind the Pacifics largest cemeteries, nearly 6,800 graves in all; mounds with their stars and crosses. Thousands of families would not have the solace of a body to bid farewell, he said. But the result of the battle was thousands of lives saved when distressed bombers were able to land safely on the island, he said. Moving to the Korean War, Hunt said 55,000 Americans perished, with one of the most deadly battles being known as Chosen Reservoir. Not only did the U.S. Marines have the enemy to fight, but the elements of nature, he said, pointing to below zero temperatures and the lack of food and supplies. However, these individuals fought diligently and honorably with courage and valor, and many survived, Korea and Vietnam are both thought of as Raymond Hunt (right), who served the country in the Navy and the county in the en Writing scores up; third-grade reading, too BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County School District is trumpeting its strong performance in the first FCAT testing results released this year those for the writing test as well as the third-grade scores in reading and math. Even Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart took note of the numbers, which showed 9 percent more thirdgraders in Bradford scoring at or above grade level in reading, and 1 percent more doing so in math. The writing improvements noted were even more dramatic. At the middle school, 22 percent more eighth-graders passed the writing exam, and 28 percent more 10th-graders passed at the high school. Fourth-grade writers improved 2 percent, meaning the district improved in all five areas of measurement released last week. Since 2012 we have worked to make the necessary changes to improve student performance in Bradford County. Today, we can see the fruits of our efforts in the impressive scores our students achieved, said Superintendent Chad Farnsworth. Our students, parents, teachers, administrators and all district personnel work tirelessly to provide a sound learning environment and quality educational opportunities for students, I thank them for their hard work and passion for education. Carol Clyatt, director of accountability and special programs for the district, noted some of the strategies used to tackle writing. Since scores were so low last year, we created a very specific plan, she said. Teachers were trained in how FCAT writing responses are scored. Using sample essays, they were able to see differences at each scoring level with regard to the areas measured, including focus, organization, support and conventions (spelling and grammar). Teachers met monthly with reading coaches to review the progress of their students and get support in writing instruction. In the classroom, there was also increased practice with writing prompts. This year, the state designated 3.5 out of 6 the passing score students needed

Bible Club returns to Brooker Elementary with a splash After eight years of not having an after-school Bible Club, the school and Pastor Paul Samson of Brooker Baptist Church were able to bring back this popular opportunity for students. Pastor Samson meets with interested thirdthrough fifthgrade students once a week to share prayer, learn more about the Bible and build Christian character. The culmination for this years club activities was a field trip to In His Wakes. Established by world champion waterskier, Kristi Overton, In His Wakes helps kids learn to get off the dock with God as they learn to swim, waterski, wakeboard and tube. Twenty-six students attended and gained confidence, selfesteem and newfound hope to face lifes challenges not to mention that they had an absolute blast! Several of the students were non-swimmers, one had never been swimming in a lake, two had never been in boat, and they all learned to ski for the first time! Donations from area churches and the community made this opportunity possible for the students. Brooker Bible Club hopes to make this an annual event. Submitted by Principal Debbie Parmenter.

Thursday, May 29, 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.Snakes alive!Hello neighbor! We have had a warm, wet spring and snakes are moving, searching for food. That is why our topic for this week is preventing encounters between people and snakes. The most effective way to prevent a person from being bitten by a snake is to prevent them from interacting with a snake. An effective and inexpensive way to discourage snakes from entering your property is to erect a silt fence barrier. Silt fence is the black fabric used around construction sites to control erosion. The material comes in rolls with wooden stakes already stapled to the fabric and is easy to erect. Silt fence is available at most construction and building supply outlets. We recommend burying the silt fence 4-6 inches to prevent snakes from crawling under the barrier. If constructing a complete barrier around the yard is not possible, silt fence can be erected at specific locations where snakes are most likely to access the yard, such as near wetlands. In these instances, the ends of the barrier should curve back away from the yard for at least 10 feet to direct snakes away from your property. We do not recommend using any type of chemical snake repellent, as they have not been proven effective. Additional ways to discourage snakes from yards is to make these areas less attractive to snakes. Snakes have many predators, and prominent among them are birds of prey. Hawks and other raptors cause snakes to avoid areas that lack protective cover. Keeping grass and other vegetation cut short, removing brush piles and other debris will make the area less attractive to snakes. Snakes are important to the Florida environment. They are eaten by many animals, including alligators, hawks and wading birds. Snakes also eat animals such as mice and rats, insects, frogs and other snakes. This cycle is part of the balance of nature. We need to respect all the animals that live in nature, including snakes. If you find a snake in your yard, give the snake space and do not attempt to pick it up or step on it. Remember this phrase about snakes: Leave it be and it wont hurt me. Statistics show that people who are attempting to handle, harm or kill snakes are the most likely victims of snakebite. The cottonmouth is the most aquatic of Floridas venomous snakes and occurs throughout the state. Several species of harmless water snakes are often mistaken as cottonmouths. Although water snakes are not venomous, they tend to be aggressive and quick to bite. To avoid confusion and the potential for being bitten, it is best to leave all water snakes alone.

The school also saw an increase in the percentage of students reading at Level 1, with a 12-point jump to 28 percent. Lawteys Level 1 percentage jumped 13 points to 21 percent. District wide, 21 percent of third-graders will need reading remediation in order to be promoted to fourth grade, but 57 percent were satisfactory or better readers, an increase of 9 percent. Mean scores in third-grade math rose at Southside (7 points), Brooker (13 points) and Hampton (5 points). They were down at Starke (10 points) and Lawtey (6 points). Brooker by far had the highest percentage scoring at or above grade level 78 percent and that was an increase of 43 points. Southsides percentage climbed 7 points to 40 percent. Percentages of Level 3 or above students in math fell 10 points at Starke, 23 points at Lawtey and 3 points at Hampton. Districtwide 46 percent of third-graders were satisfactory or better in math, an increase of 1 point. Lake Butler Elementary maintained a high percentage of Level 3 or above third-graders in math, while Keystone Heights Elementary dropped 11 percent. Keystone third-graders were down 2 percent in reading, and Lake Butlers group was down 8 percent.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, May 29, 2014 cannon being in town as well. According to Futch, FDOT wants to spruce up the property where South Temple Avenue branches off from South Walnut Street. The location is seen as an entrance to downtown, and there has been talk about erecting signage there welcoming people to the city. Whether the cannon should stay at its current location or be moved has been debated in the past. Last October, Bill Dampier appeared before the commission to champion its current placement. At the time, no proposal had been made to the commission, but Dampier said the drums were beating. Dampier said veterans have discussed the cannon and believe it represents a large part of the communitys history. Moreover, he said they believe replacing the cannon with signage would pose a traffic hazard. Any attempt to place something there to draw attention from the road is a safety problem, he said. Mayor Carolyn Spooner told Futch that when the issue had come up in the past, veterans opposed the move. Futch said that hadnt always been the case, and at one time he was working with Schaefer to get the cannon relocated to the park. Since then, he agreed, the sentiment has been to leave the cannon alone. But he said the veterans who feel that way dont have any more ownership than the community leaders who would like to see that property used for another purpose. At veterans park, Futch said the cannon could be appreciated and photographed. Where it is, it cannot be easily accessed. Chief Jeff Johnson, who is also active with the Community Traffic Safety Committee, confirmed FDOTs intentions. The only thing standing in the way is uncertainty about who to notify that the cannon is being moved. As soon as they find out who to send the letter to, they are going to move this cannon, Johnson said. Anyone opposing that needs to talk to FDOT, he said. Commissioner Danny Nugent said the American Legion and Boy Scouts maintain the cannon property, and since FDOT recently removed the landscaping, they were making plans to replant it. Futch said someone could do a better job maintaining it at the park than its current location. Its just going to be a rusty heap there one day and nobodys going to really care whether its there or not, he said. Plus, the park is named for Schaefer. Using common sense, I dont know why anyone would object to it. We would just like to see it put somewhere where it will be preserved, Futch said. Nevertheless, he said he would reach out to the veterans groups for input. The city is going to seek more information on FDOTs plans for property. Futch was also at the meeting to request that the commission accept the donation of permanent trashcans for the Downtown Square from the Starke Kiwanis. Continued from 1A forgotten wars, Hunt said, but with so many lives sacrificed, including more than 58,000 in Vietnam, they should not be. Hunt also discussed the war on terrorism, spurred by the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center. During the wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, troops have faced a new threat, he said improvised explosive devices that have killed and maimed thousands. In addition to wounded bodies that will never be the same, servicemen and women suffer minds troubled by the atrocities they have observed. Hunt gave special acknowledgment for the unsung heroes of every conflict the medics. Unarmed, equipped with first aid kits, they would run through enemy machinegun fire, mortar or artillery fire, in order to render aid and assist the wounded, he said. The horrifying and terrifying experiences sustained by all of those individuals cannot be adequately put into words. He also remembered four local veterans who recently passed away, including husband and wife Dave and Christine Peace who served in the Navy, Harold Epps who served in the Army National Guard, and Joseph Daniels, who served in the Army, Marine Corps and Air Force. Hunt closed by asking everyone to honor veterans every day. Whenever you see a service man or woman on the street or in a store, thank them for their service to our country. Thank them for keeping you free when you go to bed at night. Thank God for allowing you to live in this great nation, he said. Hunt, himself, gave 30 years to the U.S. Navy, enlisting in 1952. In 1975, he moved from active status to the reserves, and when he retired in 1982, he had attained the rate of senior chief gunners mate. His service wasnt through, however. Hunt went to work for the Bradford County Sheriffs Office, where he worked for 18 years, first as jail administrator, then as a deputy sheriff. Hunts career in the navy included time aboard battleships in the Korean War, destroyer duty, and submarine rescue and salvage. He was a gunners mate on board the U.S.S. Boston, then in the late 1960s, he was training administrator and acting commander of a medium-sized naval and marine corps training unit in Texas. Next, he was naval advisor to U.S. Military Assistance Command in South Vietnam. He was then stationed in Charleston on the U.S.S. Cone. In 1971, on his second tour in Vietnam, he was assigned to the gun line on the U.S.S. Cone, which was recognized as firing the last shot in the conflict north of the demilitarized zone in June 1973. His numerous awards and decorations include the Silver Star Medal, Bronze Star Medal, Navy and Marine Commendation Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, Combat Action Ribbon and many more. Hunt has been married to the former Mary Fraser of Albany, Ga., for 58 years, and they have two daughters, eight grandchildren and two greatgranddaughters.Continued from 1A

said. I returned to my little boy and little girl safe and sound. During a later stint at the Pentagon, Crawford had the chance to visit the Vietnam Memorial. He located Liddells name on the wall. I ran my thumb across it, Crawford said. My heart rushed with memories from the past. Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, May 29, 2014News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake RegionFEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Retired Army Col. Jim Crawford will never forget Robert Liddell, a man who put duty to his country ahead of early retirement. Liddell never made it to retirement, making the ultimate sacrifice when he was killed in combat during the Vietnam War. Today, I honor and remember 1st Sgt. Robert Liddell, Crawford said. I remember what an honor it was to serve with himsuch a great soldier. Crawford was the keynote speaker at the Camp Blanding Joint Training Centers Memorial Day ceremony. He referenced the book of Ecclesiastes in describing the mixture of emotions that come with remembering those who gave their lives in service to this countrythere is a time to weep for them, but also a time to remember sharing a laugh with them; a time when those who would become true heroes could be embraced, and a time when they are not around to embrace. There was a time to love them, and that time will be forever, Crawford said. There was a time for war, and they gave us a time for peace. These times, like today, we honor them by posting flags of the United States on their hallowed graves for the supreme sacrifice made for you and me. Most likely, each of you, though, has someone special in mind who you would like to honor. For Crawford, that special person is Liddell. Crawford was assigned to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where he commanded a signal company of 172 men preparing to go to Vietnam. I began to receive young soldiers from basic training with little or no experience at all, Crawford said. An old sergeant once told Crawford, Son, there are no heroes in combat. You only react based upon how well you are trained. Crawford said that became his motto. With that in mind, he said he was in great need of a good first sergeant to step in for one who was going to retire. Crawford turned to a friend of his who had experience in VietnamLiddell. The position would be a promotion for Liddell, but he already had 17 years of service under his belt and was preparing to retire. Liddell had a family that included two young daughters. I would not have felt bad if he had turned me down, Crawford said. Liddell, though, accepted the position and helped Crawford train the men of the signal company. Crawford said Liddell was a great right-hand man to me. They deployed to Vietnam in June 1969. Liddell was killed a couple of months later. He returned to his grieving wife and daughters, Crawford Giving a salute during the playing of Taps after placing a wreath in honor of fallen military men and women are (foreground, l-r) Col.

youre in downtown Paris or in Starke, Fla., or in Waco, Texas. Former Starke Mayor Steve Futch attended the original shows opening with his wife, Cindy, in 2006. In a June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story, Futch said he wished a fictitious name had been chosen for the city in question, but he added that sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself. It was still enjoyable and entertaining, Futch was quoted as saying in the June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story. Im glad we saw it. Acres. In fact, Caldwell said the town should probably be changed depending upon where the production is playing. For example, her hometown of Waco, Texas, wouldve been the smalltown setting when the musical was performed in Dallas. Its not where the story takes place thats important. Its the story itself. In regard to The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, that story centers around Darlene, the Scrooge-like character who undergoes a transformation, thanks to a visit from the spirit of her deceased fianc. Its really about watching Darlene, Caldwell said. Shes angry. She lost the love of her life. He had to come back and give her permission to move on without him. Thats as universal as you can get. I dont care if being inhabited by an ancient spirit. James said, In rehearsals, when we all got to the ending, we were like, What? The tree is possessed? Choi said the key for the actors is to portray their characters as genuinely believing every absurd thing thats happening around them. Fellow actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed. You have to commit to it because the more sincere you are with all of it, the funnier it makes it, Haldeman said. Mark Chambers, who starred in the original The Great American Trailer Park Musical as Norbert, returns to play Jackie, a proprietor of a business that brings pancakes and sex appeal together. Despite that, he said he believes the sequel is less risqu, referring to the fact that the original musical featured a stripper as one of its main characters. Still, a comedy that features a song entitled, (Expletive) It, Its Christmas, is probably not for everybody. Hippodrome Managing Director Jessica Hurov referenced a June 7, 2006, Gainesville Sun story about the original musical in which someone was quoted as saying, If you have a sense of humor, you should definitely go. If you dont, if youre stuck-up or offended easily, you shouldnt. Hurov said The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical will reward those with a sense of humor. Its raucous, but heartfelt. You have to come, have a drink, sit back and let it wash over you, Hurov said. So, why should you go spend Christmas with the residents of Armadillo Acres? Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, said, We do, I believe, have the biggest Christmas spirit of any neighborhood. Marissa Toogood, who portrays Pickles, quickly added, And maybe the biggest hair.

Caldwell said it takes a look at how a person can overcome a tragic event and move on with life. The show is about ones life journey. You get two choices when you grow older: You either turn out sometimes kind of cynical and bitter and negative, or you kind of become wiser and more accepting and more open, Caldwell said. I think we get to watch that happen with (Darlene). Sounds like serious stuff and there are touching moments in the productionbut youre probably not going to end up crying, unless its from laughing too hard. The writing is so crazy, and there are so many ridiculous things that are happening, said Grace Choi, who portrays Darlene. Alec James, who plays the character Rufus, said in a script full of crazy ideas, its hard to say that one is any crazier than the other, though there is that matter of the Christmas tree 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, M ay 29, 2014 Florida Twin TheatreAll Seats $6.00 Before 6 p.m. 964-5451* CLOSED MON & TUES SCREEN 1 SCREEN 2 STARTS FRIDAY Visit us on-line at www.FloridaTwinTheatre.comFri: 8:00 Sat: 5:05, 8:00 Sun: 5:30 Wed.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If Charles Dickens awoke from a kegnog bender and decided to start writing, perhaps his classic A Christmas Carol wouldve turned out like the Hippodrome Theatres latest production, The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. The sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical opens Friday, May 30, with discount previews scheduled for Wednesday, May 28, and Thursday, May 29. Characters Betty, Lin (thats short for Linoleum) and Pickles return for what the Gainesville theater describes as a cat-fightin, sunworshippin, chair-throwin, good-ole festive Hipp summer musical good time. Director Lauren Caldwell said when it was learned there was a sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical, which was the best-attended show in Hippodrome history during both of its runs, there was no hesitation in wanting to present it for a summer run. But Christmas in summer? Yes, the show may have allusions to A Christmas Carol with the transformation of character Darlene, brought about with the help of spirits and a dose of electricitybut there is more to the show than Trailer Park Musical sequel: Christmas hilarity in summer BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Is it a sense of pride when your hometown is the setting for a comedic stage production that takes place in a trailer park? If youre from Starke, thats the case with the Hippodrome Theatres The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, which runs from May 30 through June 22. Its the sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical. As is the case with the original, the setting is Starke at the fictional Armadillo Acres mobile-home community. Director Lauren Caldwell said there was a cautious curiosity when it came to observing how Starke residents would react to the original musical, but in the end, they seemed to enjoy it. The Great American Trailer Park Musical proved to be the best-attended show in the history of the Hippodrome during its two runs. The majority of the audiences were people from Starke, Caldwell said. Still, Caldwell said there is no reason for anyone who didnt see the original show to be wary of how Starke and its people are portrayed in the sequel. The good thing about it is these people arent being made fun of in anyway, Caldwell said. Actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed, saying the musical is genuine and heartfelt, with actor Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, adding, Its about people and family. Actor Grace Choi, who portrays Darlene, said the characters have their quirks, which are accentuated for comedic purposes, but added, It has nothing to do with it being in Starke. I feel that was just the location it happened to be. David Nehls and Betsy Kelso wrote both trailer-park musicals. It was Nehls who decided upon using Starke as the location for Armadillo Acres. Aside from the stage backdrop, which includes a few familiar Starke sights, such as the bull outside of Grannies Restaurant, neither musical contains anything that is Starke specific. Either musical would still work if a different town was chosen as the site of Armadillo KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR ON THE 1st Legals

He added that he anticipates those same playerswho will be sophomores next yearcarrying much of the workload for the offense. Theyve got to grow up in a hurry, he said of the ninthgraders. Tonight was a good test for them. Dickinson added that as in prior years, summer conditioning will likely determine the destiny of the team. He said his tight endsall ninth-graders particularly need to bulk up during the summer. On defense, Dickinson said his players got to the ball well, but missed too many tackles. He also said fatigue may have played a role in the second half. He attributed that to the fact that he does not focus on conditioning in the spring as much as he does in the fall.

JUs womens rowing program capped a successful spring schedule with its first-ever Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships. Just a few weeks previously, head coach Jim Mitchells team maneuvered the waters of Sarasota and was crowned the Florida Intercollegiate Rowing Association champions. With four top finishes and just one runner-up, the Dolphins held a 29-point advantage over Nova Southeastern, the number-one ranked Division II national champions.

She had the honor of making JUs Davis College of Business deans list the last two semesters. KHHS grad Beck to BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Keystone Heights drove to the Pedro Menendez 1-yard line, but could not convert at the end of the first half in a 21-0 loss to the Falcons in a spring football classic on May 23. Menendez first scored midway through the second quarter on a 29-yard pass from Sebastian Valone to Jayson Sowden. The play completed a 12-play, 50yard drive. The Falcons scored next on a 5-yard run by quarterback Adam Taylor with 3:22 left in the third quarter. Seth Bradshaw completed the nights scoring with a 5-yard run midway through the final quarter. Aaron Melfi kicked extra points following all three touchdowns under modified rules for spring games that eliminated punt and kickoff returns, and prohibited defensive rushes during kicking plays. Keystones best opportunity for a score came at the end of the first half after the Indians drove 70 yards to the Menendez 10. The drive featured runs of 4, 10, 6, 4, 5, 4 and 4 yards by Anton Noble and pass completions of 12, 10, 9, 10 and 5 yards by quarterback Wyatt Harvin. Four of the completions went to Brighton Gibbs and one to Tyler Rickets. On fourth-and-1 from the Menendez 10, Harvin completed his sixth pass of the drive to Noble, but the Indian running back failed to reach the goal line as time ran out. However, a roughing-the-passer penalty gave Keystone one more chance from the Menendez 1 with no time left on the clock.

Three plays later, Parks took a short pass from Dante White and turned it into a 45-yard touchdown. The PAT put Dunnellon up 7-0 just 1:08 into the game.

Bradford drove past midfield when quarterback Jacob Luke scrambled for a 10-yard gain to the Dunnellon 45, but the Tigers dropped Desue for a 4-yard loss before sacking Luke for a 3-yard loss. Trevor Shannahan and Dawson Watson combined to make a tackle for a 2-yard loss at the start of Dunnellons next offensive series, but Tigers quarterback White, who finished 4-of-5 for 140 yards, hit Parks in stride along the sideline for a 75-yard touchdown and a 14-0 Dunnellon lead with 3:16 remaining in the first quarter.

Paternal grandparents are Wayne and Terrie Mobley of Hampton and Inmon Moody and MaryAnne Lewis of Lawtey.Birth: Socials Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Dear Editor: With all due respect to Malcolm Hills letter, May 22. 2014, Support NRA, Second Amendment., I nevertheless found it an odd and confusing presentation of the First, Second and Fourth amendments to our constitution.   No, Mr. Hill, the First amendment does not give us the right to say anything and everything we want without somebody in authority telling us we cant.   A side from libel and Previous letter confusing take on amendmentsDear Editor: I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation to each and every one who attended the Memorial Day service at Veterans Park and Camp Blanding on Monday. Your attendance and kind attention to our Memorial Service proves your respect for our men and women in service. To you who made contributions to the VFW Poppy fund, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for when you display the poppy, it shows your respect for all of our fallen who paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. And to the young lady who drew a picture of our American flag and presented it to me, thanking me for my service, thank you. I will cherish it as I do other honors bestowed upon me. Respectfully,Thanks for Memorial Dayslander laws, we are not allowed to indulge in hate speech without facing legal and/or economic consequences. Then, Mr. Hill informs us that the Fourth amendment says that we can gang up anywhere and anytime and gang up with Second Amendment and give the devil or anybody as much hell as we care to without fear of reprisal from the government.   Huh?? The Fourth amendment deals solely with a persons right to be free of arrest, or seizure of property without a warrant based on probable cause. I suspect the writer confused the Fourth with the First amendment and its guaranties of free assembly for purposes of protest. Aside from that error, the ganging up language could hardly be called constitutional, implying as it does vigilante or mob justice.   Considering these less than scholarly assertions, Mr. Hill then has the temerity to suggest that the reader is not thinking and have your head up the wrong place. Following these elegant observations, Mr. Hill, it seems apparent it gets to the meat of his letter i.e.: that the Second amendment, giving right of gun ownership (because as we know all gun owners are part of a wellregulated militia, including the disturbed individual who use their weapons to kill innocent people) is protecting us from Big Bad Government.   That kind of mindset does not square very well with his praise of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution, the latter the very foundation of the government he rails against.     Arnold Harris Lawtey Dear Editor: On Flag Day, June 14, we commemorate the adoption of the American flag. For more than 200 years, Old Glory has served as a symbol of our nations freedom and as a source of pride for our citizens.

From now through next spring, the bass weights will be smaller.   This will be not only because the fish will not be full of the large roe, but also because they will be much more reclusive in deeper water with thicker cover.

Again, it was Worrell providing several 20-plus-yard runs en route to his second touchdown of the night.Continued from 3B touchdown against Dunnellon. Fins, Fur & Tails The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is currently considering changes to the regulations that apply to the harvesting of largemouth bass.   Presently, the bag limit for largemouth bass caught south and east of the Suwannee River is five fish over 14 inches.   In an effort to increase the population of larger bass, the commission is proposing a change that would continue to allow five keeper bass, but only one would be allowed to be over 16 inches. One obvious conflict is that the regulation would run counter to the objective of all bass tournaments, which is to weigh as many large fish as possible. The solution will be FWC considers change in bass harvests to obtain an exemption for each tournament.   This is not currently required if the tournament uses the same size limits specified by commission. When questioned, a FWC representative in Lake City indicated that every tournament, including the small, open tournaments, would require exemptions.   The representative was, however, reassuring in that multiple exemptions could be obtained in one online setting. Joey Tyson, who organizes the Bald Eagle tournaments, suggested the process would not be a significant obstruction.   T yson indicated that the most significant adjustment to the changes would be the feeling by non-tournament fishermen that they are limited on the harvest amount.Outdoors outlookThe 7-plus-pound bass the big bass of the Tournament.

Today, I remember him and all the others whose names are on that wall and on black, granite walls around our country, Crawford said. Prior to his speaking engagement at the Camp Blanding ceremony, Crawford was interviewed by a Jacksonville TV station and asked why a Memorial Day ceremony should be held at Camp Blanding. Crawford said the short TV interview didnt give him a chance to fully answer that question, but he shared with the Memorial Day ceremony crowd just why Camp Blanding is so special. Camp Blanding has been a large part of his life, Crawford said. It was a place where the Lake Butler native enjoyed picnics and boating while growing up, but it also served as the place where Crawford went through basic training when he enlisted in the Florida Army National Guard on Dec. 13, 1956. During World War II, this place was also a very special place for many soldiers, Crawford said. It was one of the largest training bases in America and in the South. Camp Blanding was the training site for nine Army divisions and 16 special-weapons units. After they deployed, it turned into an infantry replacement training center. I read in the history it was a big training center. They had 44 battalionsI cant quite comprehend thatat Camp Blanding.

Jim Lewis, Warren Carver, Robert Carver, Jamie Carver, Jeff Carver, Jim Ward, Gene Tannner and Lance Williams made their annual trip to Dead Lake, south of Palatka, in May. Warren Carver indicated they were less successful this year, but he was careful not to complain by saying they did OK. Townsend Strickland specified that the May bluegill spawn on Kingsley Lake was scattered, but heavy. He also indicated he saw few shellcrackers. Some of these local bream fishermen seem to think that the shellcracker spawn will be heavier in June and that the bluegills will cluster bed on the May 28 new moon and again on the following full moon. Some unclustered bluegill beds should be available most of the remaining summer. Saltwater action seems to be settling into its summer trends.
