CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Undeterred by its inability to expand straight down U.S. 301, Starke has hit on a new way to expand its tax base. The citys water and wastewater utilities have been the carrot dangled to those developing outside the city encouraging them to annex. In fact, the citys code says service wont be extended to those outside the city limits unless they agree to annexation, and only rare exception has been made. Those who have been extended utilities outside city limits pay 1.5 times the monthly cost as a way to make up for the annual property taxes the city is not receiving from those landowners. After annexing and then reversing the annexation of the future Badcock Furniture development and other properties, the city commission now understands that if the land isnt contiguous and there isnt a cooperative landowner, annexation isnt an option. In the aftermath of the annexation reality check, the city commission has been considering other ways INSIDE: Photos from BHS and Northside Selling Bradford County Bradford reading, math, science scores up overall BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor As is usually true of each years FCAT test, there are results to brag about and some head-scratchers. The remaining test scores for grades four and up were released last week, and every grade but fifth improved in reading, with 10th grade making notable progress in closing the achievement gap with the state. On the other hand is the eighthgrade performance on the math test, down dramatically for the second year in a row, with nearly 60 percent of the class failing to rise above Level 1. FCAT scores fall into one of five categories. Level 3 scores are satisfactory, and Level 5 represents mastery of the most challenging content, but Level 1 indicates the students are struggling to grasp the concepts. Some disappointments in the math and reading results were soothed by the science results, which were up at most schools.ReadingThe percentage of fourth-graders scoring well on FCAT reading climbed from 47 to 50 percent, which was the highest percentage in the district except for the 10th grade, which went from 46 to 51 percent. At both Brooker and Southside elementary schools, the percentage was up 18 points. The Brooker fourth grades average score was also up 15 points, and Southsides was up 5 points. Hampton had the highest mean score, and its percent passing the test was up 7 percent. Brooker was still the lowest performing school, and 29 percent of its students scored in the lowest level. Fourth-grade reading scores were down at Starke and Lawtey elementary schools. From 58 percent of its students at Level 3 or above, Starke fell to 43 percent, and its average score slipped five points. At Lawtey, the score was down 4 points, and the percent passing was down 11 percent. The middle schools FCAT reading progress was exemplified by a 10-percent jump in the percentage of sixth-graders scoring Level 3 or above. In the eighth grade, it was 9 percent, and in the seventh grade it was up 2 percent. In addition to these increases, the mean score for each grade was up, too. At the high school, the percent passing was up 5 percent in both the ninth and 10th grades, which pushed the 10th grade to 51 percent. Thats up 20 percent from 2011, when only 31 percent of 10th-graders scored Level 3 or above. Districtwide, fifth-grade reading performance was down 6 percent. Lawtey, Brooker and Hampton all saw improvement, with Lawteys percentage passing climbing 20 points See FCAT, 3AWERE OUT! 6. For more from graduation night, see Regional News.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A man is in jail in Bradford County, accused of raping a teenager in his care. Gabriel M. Gattis, 36, currently faces one count of sexual assault on a victim over 12 and under 18. Gattis was picked up in Escambia County around 3 a.m. on June 8. Though the crime allegedly took place on Redgrave Street in Starke, and his warrant was issued containing a Green Cove Springs address, his arrest information includes a Pensacola apartment as his home address. The Starke Police Department had been trying to contact Gattis earlier this year, although he only responded to a single message, saying he was unavailable to come to the station for an interview. As of the end of March, he had failed to respond to any other messages, so a warrant for his arrest was requested and issued. According to the probable cause information submitted with the warrant request, an investigator with the Department of Children and Families contacted the police department about the sexual assault allegations in early February. One victim described being sexually assaulted by Gattis in June of 2012. Another described an attempted assault by Gattis in October of the same year. Gattis is being held in the Bradford County Jail with bond set at $500,000. Gattis See TAX, 6A

There will be inflatables, train rides, sno-cones & more... Woods seeks to retain Starke seatThe following is a statement of intent to seek public office submitted by the candidate. The submission deadline for city commission candidates is Monday, July 21, at 5 p.m. To the citizens of the city of Starke, I would like to take this opportunity to announce my intent to seek re-election for the office of city commissioner for District 3. I am Travis Woods, now serving as your District 3 city commissioner. I have lived in the city of Starke since 1958. I have been married to Ann Woods for the past 50 years, and we have two children, Chanda Reddish, and Jason and Tracey Woods. We have six grandchildren. I retired from the state of Florida Drivers License Division where I served as a supervisor. I am an active member of the Madison Street Baptist Church. As your District 3 city commissioner, I am pleased to share with you a few of the accomplishments that I been proud to be a part of as your commissioner. We have upgraded our waste water plant from a Class B sludge (requiring disposal at the landfill) to a Class AA producing plant that the sludge can be land applied for fertilizer. This accomplishment has placed the city of Starke ahead of the curve in meeting the increasing DEP rules concerning sludge disposal. As your District 3 city commissioner, we were faced with providing a modern fire station to house our fire department employees and equipment or face ISO insurance rating drop and an increase in insurance premiums. At this time the city of Starke commissioners agreed to liquidate some property that had not been utilized, and used those funds to completely remodel the old library building, and constructed a new four bay fire station to house our fire trucks and tankers. This action resulted not only in a suitable housing for our fireman, but provided the much needed shelter to protect our fire trucks, pumpers and other fire equipment. We did receive a much better ISO rating and our citizens received a reduction in their insurance premium. In 2007, the city commissioners completed a total systemwide electric upgrade. This was a one-year project consisting of replacing distribution transformers, power poles, lines and equipment. Redesigning the Call Street power substation removing 50 year old transformers and regulators. This resulted in our line loss decreasing from 13 percent to 5 percent, resulting in $120,000 savings. I have been active with the beautification of our downtown area working with the state inmate squads and city staff to keep our downtown area attractive and helping our business owners in attracting patrons. I am very enthusiastic in the Christmas season with decorations and lighting of our streets. I currently serve on the city of Starke Tree Board, designed to protect the trees within our city. We have been awarded grants to plant trees annually to coincide with Arbor Day activities. We have completed our second phase of road paving and street resurfacing the streets in our city and the result is we now have safer streets to travel on. We budget each and every year for street paving/resurfacing and utilize collected impact money to help with the cost. I serve on the city of Starke Pension Board as a trustee for the general employees. We meet quarterly to decide the best options for the investment of the pension funds. As a pension fiduciary, my responsibilities are, to act solely in the interest of plan members and their beneficiaries and with the exclusive purpose of providing benefits to them, following the plan documents, diversifying plan investments and paying only reasonable plan expenses. As a city commissioner I was part of completing a territorial agreement with Florida Power and Light and Clay Electric. This agreement resulted in the elimination of duplication of electric service in our city. This past year the city of Starke renewed our solid waste haulers WCA contract. We negotiated not only a reduction in cost to our citizens, we were able to convince our contractor to provide free uniform garbage cans for all residents. For the past seven years I have served on the Florida League of Cities Executive Board that allows me to receive updated information from our local cities. In the future I see many tough issues ahead due to the tough economic times we are in, we will continue to strive toward bringing in new business to Starke that will create new jobs, bring in revenue and develop Starke into a city that our citizens do not have to travel to outside cities for employment, goods or other services. As your city commissioner, I feel with my many years of experience during the slow economic times, I have gained a wealth of knowledge that could be used in the future to help move the city of Starke forward. It has been a pleasure to serve the citizens of Starke in District 3 for the past eight years. I would be very much honored to continue that service for the next four years as your commissioner. Thank you for your continued support and consideration. Capital City Bank Group Foundation has come through for the Bradford County Education Foundation once again with a check for $3,000.

Only Hampton had a higher percentage of fifthgraders scoring at or above grade level. The mean test score was up 4 points at Hampton and 5 points in Lawtey. It was Starke and Southside elementary schools that had the setbacks in fifth grade. Starke slipped 3 percent, but still had 52 percent passing. Southside, on the other hand, tumbled 19 percentage points, so just 36 percent of the students scored Level 3 or above. The mean scores were down, as well.MathBrooker Elementary fourthgraders raised the schools average score 18 points giving it the highest fourth-grade math score in the district, and the percentage of students scoring Level 3 or higher went from 15 percent to 76 percent. Half of the fourth-graders at Starke and Southside elementary schools scored proficient or better in math. This was an improvement of 9 percent at Southside but a decline of 16 percent at Starke. The mean score was preserved at Starke, remaining the second highest in the district, and it climbed 7 points at Southside, placing it just below Starke. Like Southside, Hampton Elementary also had a mean score of 211 points, but it had a smaller percentage of proficient students compared to last year. At Lawtey Elementary, that percentage fell 26 points, and its mean score was down 9 points. Fifth grade was a different story. Lawteys mean score was up, and its percentage passing was up 12 points to 56 percent. Starke Elementary, which had the highest mean score in the district, also had the highest percentage passing, 65 percent, an increase of 14 percentage points. Brookers mean score was right behind Starkes, and 60 percent of its fifth-graders were Level 3 or above, an increase of 16 points. Hampton was up 10 percent, and its mean score grew by 7 points. Unfortunately, there were drops in the results at Southside, and just 27 percent of its fifthgraders scored proficient or better on the math test. Sixth-graders again showed progress in math at the middle school, but just 36 percent scored at Level 3 or higher. Compare that to the 39 percent who scored at Level 1. Performance was down in the seventh and eighth grades. Only 37 percent of seventh-graders scored Level 3 or above, while 34 percent were at Level 1. But that was still much better than the eighth-grade results. Last year, the percentage of eighthgraders scoring satisfactorily or better fell to 11 percent. This year, only 5 percent scored Level 3 or higher on math. Meanwhile, nearly 60 percent scored at Level 1. High school level math performance will be revealed by the end-of-course exam results, which were not released as of press time.ScienceHigh schoolers are also taking end-of-course exams for science and other courses, but the FCAT science test was still taken by the districts fifthand eighthgraders. The mean score for fifth grade was maintained, but 46 percent of the students scored Level 3 or higher compared to 43 percent last year. The mean test scores were up the most at Lawtey Elementary, 7 points, and Starke Elementary, 4 points. The percent passing was up 23 percent at Lawtey and 14 percent at Starke. Eleven percent more passed at Brooker, which maintained the highest mean score in the district, and 15 percent more performed well at Hampton, where the mean score was up one point. Fifth-grade science scores were down on average at Southside Elementary. The mean test score was down 4 points, and the percent at Level 3 or above was down 12 percent to just 27 percent. That percentage was up 7 points for the eighth grade at the middle school. There the mean score was up 4 points to 196, which like the fifth grade, is just 5 points behind the state average. Except for the students taking retakes of the reading exam to meet graduation requirements, this is the last time the FCAT 2.0 reading, writing and math will be administered. New assessments are being developed to replace those tests as the state moves from the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards to the new Florida Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Fifthand eighth-graders will continue to take the FCAT 2.0 science test.

Thursday, June 12, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Summertime is ramping up, with temperatures regularly hitting 90 degrees or more. And if sweltering outdoor weather isnt enough, the season also brings an unwelcome visitor, the yellow fly. This critter doesnt buzz or hum like a mosquito, so the first sign that one is after you is the sharp sting you feel when it has already got you! I was interested to learn that only the female yellow fly bites. Both sexes feed on plant nectar and pollen to obtain energy, but the female feeds on blood to develop eggs. These flies can attack throughout the day, but are most active during the late afternoon and on cloudy days. They are especially common near large bodies of water, which explains why they always seem to be hanging around my home on Kingsley Lake. Female yellow flies deposit their egg masses on plants, rocks or sticks over or near water. Within five to 12 days, the eggs hatch and the larvae drop into the water or mud where they feed on organic debris or other small organisms. They pass the winter in the pupa or dormant stage, emerging as adults in the spring. Flies are on the wing in Florida from March to November, although the peak season is April through June. There are no effective means for controlling yellow-fly larvae, but mosquito repellents can be moderately effective against adults except when the flies are very abundant or very hungry. These flies tend to remain in or near forests and are rarely found in large numbers far from the shelter of trees. The best means of protection against yellow flies is to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, including head-nets and gloves, when outdoorsan uncomfortable proposition during the hot Florida summer. DEET is the most effective repellent. Because it is not as effective against flies as it is against mosquitoes, it should be reapplied more often. Biting flies are most active in stillair areas. Increasing air movement in porches, patios, and picnic areas will help keep them away. Also, burning repellent candles and torches containing citronella may help. Because most biting flies rest in vegetation, pruning shrubs and mowing weedy areas may promote environmental airflow and reduce their numbers around your home.

Nineteen class members and 7 guests enjoyed a delicious meal and a good Brown Wise, Doris Norman Smith, Marian McRae Conner, Grace Dickinson Malone, Peggy Tilley Godwin, 1949 and 1950 BHS classmates reuniteto make up for the lost revenue. There is a realization that the ban on utility connections isnt compatible with the vision to promote development and denies the city new customers, but the surcharge on monthly usage apparently isnt enough of a consolation prize for the restrictions on annexation. Raising rates further isnt an option as the state has capped rates on unincorporated properties. The commission instead discussed hiking connection and other fees associated with tying a new customer to the system, but those fees, unlike property taxes, are one-time charges. To the rescue with a possible solution are City Clerk Ricky Thompson and the citys new engineer, Mittauer and Associates. Pointing to a policy that already exists in the city of Live Oak, Thompson says the city can tax utility customers outside the city limits but only if they agree. Live Oaks agreement with unincorporated utility customers allows for a payment in lieu of annexation. Live Oak doesnt charge those customers a higher monthly charge, but once a year they make a payment to the city based on the value of their property and the citys current ad valorem tax rate, just like they were paying property tax. The payment would not appear on a Starke customers annual tax bill. The city would bill them separately, and because its like a tax payment instead of a utility bill, the revenue can fund general government instead of the enterprise fund. Thompson said this was the fairest solution because customers inside and outside the city limits would be paying the same rates the same water and sewer rates and the same property tax rates. The catch is the resident or business owner would have to agree to this arrangement, which means instead of the city saying annex in order to get utilities, it would be saying agree to this annual property tax payment. Thompson doesnt yet have examples to compare the current scenario to the Live Oak policy. He did say that current utility customers outside city limits would not be required to sign a contract but could go on paying the higher utility rates. The commission will have to get up to speed on how all of this is supposed to work before making a decision. There was still a lot of confusion during the last board meeting.TAXContinued from 1A CorrectionBHS graduate Kyle Brooks name was misspelled last week in the graduation edition.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, June 12, 2014 Here we are: Getting the word out about Bradford County BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Interest in economic development has led to recent discussion of tax incentives, getting Starkes Community Redevelopment Agency back on track and setting a vision for the next 10 years. Development is partially about recruiting business to come here. Its also about promoting what is already here so the county doesnt get left out when developers are looking for a place to set up shop. One thing ostensibly working in Bradfords favor is its involvement with the North Florida Economic Development Partnership. The executive director of that partnership, Jeff Hendry, visited the county commission in March for an update and shared information about the partnerships website to promote the region. Our job over the last three years has been to define what our region is, Hendry said, including an examination of the labor force the available resources. The work has been compiled on a website for the partnership which doubles as a marketing tool for the region, www.nflp.org. Land, infrastructure and access to larger markets are touted characteristics of the region, as well as the proximity of major research universities, which are often taken for granted, and workforce development assets. Bradford, Baker and Union counties are among the 15 partners, and all are listed as showing growth since the year 2000, although Bradford is just above Levy and Putnam in terms of percentage. Someone curious about Bradford County could find a snapshot at www.nflp.org. The countys vital statistics are listed, including its growth since 1980. The county is said to be 51st in population in the state, containing a tenth of the states population. The site includes family, housing and employment statistics. Bradford has a better quality of life than the state average based on the crime rate, but it falls behind the state in education based on the percentage of high school and college graduates. Key industries listed for the partnerships counties include manufacturing, timber, distribution, agriculture, technology, health care, aviation services and products, and tourism. Bradfords picture has not been fully painted, however. The sites higher education map could be considered incomplete as it fails to list either the Andrews Center or Watson Center branches of Santa Fe College or the BradfordUnion Technical Center. (The only Santa Fe campus acknowledged is Gainesville.) It isnt immediately clear if the Enterprise Park listed refers to the industrial park in Starke or the property available for development at the Keystone Heights Airpark. In any case, only one is listed. The airport itself doesnt appear to be a listed asset elsewhere on the site either. Shands Starke Regional Medical Center was not overlooked in the compilation of health care resources. The city of Starke is not among the electric utilities listed, which some might consider a plus given its costs comparison with private power companies, but theres no opportunity to tout the positives either, such as the reliability of the system and efficiency of service. It may be taken for granted that the city also has a water and wastewater utility, as does Lawtey, and Brooker and Hampton both have water. Questions have also been raised about why available real estate hasnt been listed on the site and who is responsible for compiling and sharing this information with the partnership. Only two sites in Bradford County are currently listed. The partnership has its success stories, with jobs created in Suwannee and Madison counties, for example, but direct benefits for Bradford have yet to manifest.TourismIn February, during a discussion of using bed tax money to promote events for local businesses that attract tourists, county commission Chairman Danny Riddick brought up the North Central Florida Regional Planning Councils ability to promote the area for a cost. From equestrian opportunities and outdoor recreation, to a motorsport park and seasonal and monthly festivals, the area has a lot to promote, he said, and he wanted Tourist Development Council dollars to pay for it. TDC Chairman John Miller wasnt averse, calling Bradford a hidden resource, but other commissioners werent ready to jump on board. The planning council staffs and houses the office of The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, which promotes the region is through the website www.naturalnorthflorida.com. In its own words it provides information fulfillment services for visitors wishing to explore the beauty of Natural North Florida. The website promotes events, attractions and recreational opportunities like bike and equestrian trails. There is even a companion website Fish Natural North Florida (www.fnnf.com) detailing the best places to fish throughout the region. Steven Dopp from the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council came to the county commission in March to discuss the benefits of membership. In addition to Internet exposure, travel writers are brought in who in turn publicize the amenities they visit with newspaper, magazine and online articles. Dopp said when counties pool their resources, they can undertake joint marketing campaigns that benefit the entire area. The county and TDC have yet to agree to split the $4,000 in annual dues to Original Florida. Currently, Bradford County is only represented on the site through its most well known events. The fair, Strawberry Festival and Starke Bike Fest are the only attractions listed for the county. Other opportunitiesOn June 3, Starke Commissioner Tommy Chastain had questions about opportunities for economic development assistance through the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council and why the city wasnt taking advantage of them. Mayor Carolyn Spooner, the citys representative to the council, confirmed services in economic development planning are available; its just a matter of reaching out for that help. According to the planning councils website, the region has been designated an economic development region by the U.S. Economic Development Administration since 1978, and its the planning councils job to create and update an comprehensive economic strategy for the region. Based on that strategy, the region becomes eligible for federal grants funding. Beyond that, the website says the council is involved in providing technical assistance to local governments and economic development organizations to promote growth. That includes economic impact modeling for grant applications as well as grant procurement and administration services. The city intends to contact the planning council for more information.Envision Over the course of several sessions last year, leaders from business, government, education and other fields met over several sessions to brainstorm the issues facing the county in terms of technology, infrastructure, workforce development, health care and higher education. The result was a report with recommendations to help local leaders in these sectors make the county a post-recession success story. Follow up meetings on matters like funding assistance have also taken place. The next meeting is a lunch scheduled for Thursday, June 19, at noon at the Downtown Grill. The North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Starke and Bradford county commissions and Dug Jones from the Santa Fe Envision Board will be holding a joint meeting to discuss how to take the Envision plan and move forward. The Bradford County Tourist Development Council and Bradford County Development Authority members have been invited to the session, as has Crawford Powell of Impact Development Group and the North Florida Economic Development Partnership. Chamber President Pam Whittle said this is an opportunity for the various board members to come together and discuss the issues facing all of them.Turn your idea into a businessHave a great idea?

Downtown shop owners will be invited to place signs on their buildings once the research is complete. The Richard and Pace building housed one of Starkes earliest department stores. It and another building tucked away behind it were significant because they stored much of the merchandise delivered to and from Starke on the railroad during Starkes formative years. This is nice, Sims said as she scanned the new Call Street historic sign. She added that she knew the building was old, but wasnt aware of the role her shops building had played in Starke and Bradford County history. first bank in Bradford County it moved operations down the street from todays 200 E. Call St. to its second edifice at 100 E. Call St. in 1914. The Magnolia Hotel was built as a private residence by Adolph von Kirn around 1884. It was later sold to Dr. Albert Freeman around 1915. The Magnolia Hotels new plaque describes its journey to become a hotel. A current Magnolia Hotel resident said hotel guests have stopped by to read the new sign. Its interesting, all that stuff, said the man, who declined to be named. At the Richard and Pace building, Its Your Day gown, tuxedo and bridal shop owner Leisa Sims said she hadnt even noticed the sign yetperhaps because it was placed on the side of the building that also houses the Lets Do It Studio.

The five-hour event offered something for everyone, with more emphasis on having a good time than on making a sale. About 500 people attended the event to enjoy traditional cookout fare from Country Caterers and live music from the Ben Carter Band. The younger members of the crowd found several slides and a bounce house to keep them busy, while their parents perused several informational booths from local merchants and charities such as the Relay for Life and the Food Pantry.

Gordon Smith took the hot seat in the dunking booth in the name of raising funds as well. The renovation of the dealership began in February and was completed in late May with a hefty multi-million-dollar price tag. Director of Operations/ Human Resource Manager Frank Bisacky said the process involved the complete refurbishment of both the exterior and the interior of the existing structure and was geared to both improving service to the customers and to making their experience at Murray Ford a pleasant one. Everywhere one looks, there are details designed to enhance the customers experience, from granite counter tops in the restrooms to new, highdefinition televisions and vending machines (offering a wider range of choices) in the customer waiting area. Also new is the business center, which offers high speed Internet for customers use while they wait. Wi-Fi is available over the entire lot outside to allow customers to look at the dealerships inventory online while they walk around. The service department has also been improved and augmented, being the main factor in the cost of the renovation. New lifts have been installed that can handle recreational vehicles up to 53 feet in length. New electronic equipment has been added, which allows the service department to work on any make and model. The new Murray Quick Lane Tire Center is designed to serve everyone and carries a full line of tire types and sizes for passenger vehicles. We spent a lot of money to give our customers better, quicker and more complete service, Bisacky said. We have improved the quality and scope of our service department and the breadth and depth of our entire operation. We are part of this community. This is a family owned business, not a big corporation. Our first concern when making any decision is, What is the right thing to do? That is what we do. A customer is not just a salethey are members of our community, and we want to do the best job we can in meeting their needs. BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor The Northeast Florida Regional Chamber of Commerces Tourism Development Council wants to attract more attention to Starke and Bradford County history. What they really hope to accomplish is to highlight Starke and Bradford County history, using resources at hand. Those resources include the Eugene Matthews Bradford County Historical Museum and now plaques highlighting the Call Street historic district. The Call Street district is included in the National Registry of historic places and covers a large swath of downtown Starke. Over the last few months, research has been completed, and metal plaques have been added to four buildings with roles in Starke history and Call Streets cityscape. More plaques are planned. The hope is to have a selfguided walking tour of Starke and Call Street history up and down the blocks. The first building already identified is the Richard and Pace Building, which sits on the south side of Call Street, right at the railroad tracks. Its companion building, the first Bradford Bank (now housing Tony and Als Deli), sits right next door and also has a new sign. Two additional buildings got signs last week: the chamber building, which is also the second Bradford Bank building, and the Magnolia Hotel. All of those buildings except the chamber building were constructed in the late 1800s. The chamber building was constructed during the early years of the 20th century. The Richard and Pace building replaced a former wooden frame that may have been victim to a fire. The Bradford Bank was the New signs highlight Call Street history side of her building.

I kick myself every now and then for ever stopping working, Griffis said. I miss the work and the satisfaction that comes from building something. the field of business in which he would excel. He went to work for Jimmy Moore at Moores Sun Spot in Starke, located where Walgreens is now. Moore built fiberglass boats and sold Mercury outboards. Griffis quickly found a niche in the business. People were making boats and selling boats, but nobody was repairing fiberglass boats so I learned how to do it, Griffis said. Griffis worked for Moore a long time for minimum wage until one day he asked for a 15cent raise. When Moore refused, Griffis gave his two weeks notice. Griffis had taken over the $18,000 mortgage on a piece of property owned by his father at the behest of Bud Mizell of Southern Discount (now CT City Financial). He rebuilt the house on the property and built a workshop to start his own business making fiberglass boats. Griffis and Sons opened for business, producing Stumpknocker Boats in several styles. Named after a small panfish in the bream family known for being stubborn and mean, the boats were an immediate success. The boats were really nothing fancy, Griffis said. They were just Cracker fishing boats, but people seemed to like them. Son Woodrow Jr. took over the main running of the business, but Griffis did not completely retire until about three years ago. The Stumpknocker name and assets were sold in 2004 to All Craft Marine. In 2009, Woodrow Jr. went back into the business as Griffis Fiberglass and has been successful working with St. Augustine Marine. Woodrow Jr. said he owes everything to his father. He taught me everything I know about fiberglass and building boats, he said. Griffis now spends his days feeding a yard full of squirrels and four goats and keeping his numerous bird feeders well stocked. He also enjoys watching Westerns on television and listening to vintage country music, especially the music of Hank Williams Sr. Despite all this, he is occasionally restless in his retirement. of it. We also got to see a lot of castles and old, historical places and things. When he arrived home from Germany, Griffis wasted no time in going to work. Hampered by his lack of education (he was only able to complete the second grade due to family responsibilities), he bought a truck and went to work in the scrap metal business. Some time later, he went to work as a mechanic for Shorty Livey at his garage in Starke at the corner of Pratt Street and U.S. 301, where he said he worked on a lot of vehicles from the Hercules Powder Company. Griffis married Olga Pauline Michaelchuck in 1947. The marriage lasted 57.5 years and produced five children: Viola, Victor, Woodrow Jr., Lucille and Eleanor. Griffis now presides over a large family, which includes 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Family is the most important thing to me, Griffis said. I value greatly any time I can spend with them. In 1961, Griffis started out in fighting, but just in time to join the occupying force. They moved on into Germany after two weeks in France. The war in Europe was over, but it was still smoking when we arrived, Griffis said. They were still fighting in the Pacific, but that really didnt affect us. Spending two and a half years in Germany, Griffis worked picking up and delivering prisoners and helping to chase down SS members still at large. Most of the German people were not Nazis, or if they had joined them, it was in name only, Griffis said. Many of them were forced to join the party to keep their families safe. As for the SS, most of the big guys had gotten out of the country, but there were still quite a few of the lowerranking men to the rounded up. Griffis saw service all over Germany in places like Mannheim, Darmstadt and Frankfort. He said the German people were a little unfriendly at first, but over the time he was there they seemed to become easier to get along with. While Griffis and his friends were kept busy, they never were subjected to the horrors of the concentration camps. They also found time to do a little sightseeing on their time off. Griffis remembered seeing the worlds largest wine keg in Heidelberg. The thing was so huge it had never been totally filled up, Griffis said. They said that a king one time filled it up about half way. It was so big that there was a dance floor built on top Thursday, June 12, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 3B Noegels Auto Sales888-964-64611018 N.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Monitor and Times While most people think of World War II-era military service in terms of battles, marches and invasions, there were many who served in support positions both during and after the conflict. These jobs were just as necessary and sometimes carried more responsibility than the combat positions. As one longtime Bradford County resident put it, Someone had to clean up the mess and see that problems didnt start up again. Woodrow Griffis Sr. was born on Jan. 26, 1929, on his parents farm, located about 1 mile from where Camp Blandings A gate is now. His father, Leonard, and grandfather, Henry, had adjacent 40-acre homesteads. Both men farmed to feed their families and were accomplished horse traders, which had less to do with horses as it did with bartering for needed items. It was during the Depression, so no one had any money, Griffis remembered. You had something someone needed, and they had something you needed, so you just made it work. A lot of people survived that way. Griffis remembered the hard work required on the farm, but he also has fond memories of Saturdays, when he could go to Starke with a quarter in his pocket and go the Ritz Theatre, where he could buy a bag of popcorn, a drink and a ticket to see the show. Griffis enlisted at age 16, lying about his age to do so. (He should have been 17 to be allowed to join the Army.) He did so with his parents approval, after spending a little time talking his mother into it. I was the oldest of 17 children (five girls and 12 boys, one of whom dies at 1 month of age), and someone had to help out, Griffis said. I was working for 50 cents a day, and the Army was paying $21 a month, plus they gave you room and board as well as all your clothes. Griffis was assigned to the 383rd Lightening Security Police, receiving training at Kewana, Miss. It was there he met his two best buddies, who worked with him for the next two years: Lewis Gresset and a man named Guererro, who was originally from Mexico. The trio arrived in France in early 1944, missing the and best friend Lewis Gresset served together all the way through training and two-andone-half years in Germany in the 383rd Lightening helping to track down former SS members.

Hersey said he looks forward to the level playing field at Trinity Baptist. It is a firstyear program, so there are no established positions. Its pretty exciting, Hersey said. We all get the same chance to see how good we are. Hersey said he looked at several schools in Pensacola and Enterprise, Ala., before receiving an offer from Trinity. I figured that wasnt a long ways from home, he said. Hersey was a catcher and in the pitching rotation at UCHS. Tomlinson said Hersey is a player who not only understands the game, but one who can play anywhere. Trinity Baptist, really, is getting nine players in one, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said at the catcher position, Hersey excelled at blocking balls that other catchers cant. Hes a grinder, Tomlinson said. Hes going to get dirty back there behind the plate. His experience behind the plate helped him on the mound. He understands how to approach batters, Tomlinson said, adding, Hes able to throw any pitch he has for a strike at any time. Hersey said hes not sure where Trinity coaches want him to play, but it doesnt matter to him. Ill play anywhere they need me to, he said. Offensively, Hersey has good control of the bat and is able to lay down bunts for singles, Tomlinson said. The coach added that Hersey doesnt have blazing speed, but is capable of stretching singles into doubles. Kite wasnt looking to play anywhere until Union assistant coach Lamar Waters informed him of Trinity Baptists interest in him.

Many Sizes!!! Dear Editor: I had a thought (a semi-annual event, I admit). -Why dont we take the $338 billion that our states and federal government are annually spending on those persons who came into this country without our permission, and spend it on something else. There are many possible places to divert these funds, but the one I had in mind was.. .USE IT TO PROVIDE HEALTH CARE FOR OUR VETERANS!!!!! Perhaps the scandal involving the denying of care to our real American heroes is not about sufficient funds. Maybe it has to do with incompetence-or a simple lack of gratitude-or a combination of the two. But if it does boil down to money, then, for me, its a no-brainer. (Of course every citizen will see the same kind of problems that the VA is experiencing as our government moves to take control of all the healthcare in this country.) Wake up America!! We should all be ashamed of ourselves. We have elected the people responsible for such things, or stayed home and failed to vote at all. In either case, it is our government, our country, our ultimate responsibility. We are failing to support our military, those who have enabled us to take advantage of the boundless opportunities that exist in this land. We are becoming a disgrace to the human race. Leonard C. Young Keystone Heights Dear Editor: As a twenty year Navy veteran and former Clay County Public High School History teacher of 18 years, I am tired and disgusted with the nonsensical, baseless attacks against Common Core State Standards, known in our State as the Florida Standards, running rampant in Clay County. The Florida Standards are straightforward, academic benchmarks in Math and English-Language Arts outlining the basic skills and knowledge our children in Floridas public schools should master by each grade level. While Floridas previous statewide academic standards were more rigorous than those in most states, they were not rigorous enough. How do we know? Graduates who enroll in Florida State College at Jacksonville immediately after graduation require remediation for skills they should have mastered in high school. Worse, more than 20 percent of Florida high school graduates cannot pass the military entrance exam. When ill-prepared students take these remedial courses, fail to join the military or complete vocational training, you and I as taxpayers foot the bill, and were talking billions of dollars every year. How? They earn significantly lower wages over the course of their lifetimes, and worse, become more likely to go on means-tested, taxpayer-funded government assistance. This translates into billions of lost wages and taxpayer dollars from our economy on an annual basis. Detractors would have you believe that these standards are the Armageddon for public education, yet they ignore these simple facts by spreading irrational rumors and fear tactics. They have no solutions or better alternatives. And even though they had ample opportunity to voice their concerns more than four years ago when our state board of education openly and constitutionally reviewed and adopted these stands over the course of several month, none was to be found. Let me be clear:   These standards are not a political manifesto. They do not usher in a national curriculum. They are not forced upon our state. And for Gods sake, they do not influence childrens sexual preferences! You can read them for yourself at http://www.fldoe.org/BII/ curriculum/SSS/. If you as a parent or citizen are concerned about political bias in our classrooms, then direct your concerns to local education officials. They are the ones, after all, who are deciding what textbooks and materials our children are using in the classroom, not Washington. I stand in solidarity with all who oppose a federal takeover of education. However, when a few dozen states get together to standardize standards, that makes perfect sense to me as a parent, retired educator and taxpayer. In America, the land of opportunity, a childs zip code should not be the deciding factor for what expectations are leveled against him at school. It seems opponents of these new standards should rather embrace complacency and the status quos mediocrity instead of raise the bar for what we expect of our students. I thank Governor Scott, the state board of education and the legislature for choosing to keep these high stands in place. I also commend any local education officials who are committed to faithfully implementing these standards in our classroom. After all, their success depends on your good work. The scare tactics must stop. Our children, their future, and our states long-term prosperity depend on us rising above the Letters editor@bctelegraph.com health care is better use madness so they can have a shot of success.

Its a great opportunity, Starling said. Its always been my dream to play at the next level. Hersey said, It feels good to go to the next level and play, with McAlister adding, Its something Ive always wanted since I was a little boy. Kite admitted that words couldnt describe his feelings, but did say, I never really thought I had a chance to play at the next level. Union head coach Brian Tomlinson the four players always remained loose and knew how to have fun, but they took the sport seriously. They did what they needed to do to be successful and did what their coaches asked of them. Those four were instrumental in us winning state two years ago, Tomlinson said. The fact those guys get to go on and play at the next level says a lot about them and all the hard work theyve done. For Hersey, Kite and McAlister, its a chance to remain teammates. It feels good to have all your friends on the same team, Hersey said, with Kite adding, I feel pretty good. I get to play with my friends and play ball some more.

The coolers are essentially made by a rotationally molded process, where plastic materials are placed into a mold under pressure and continually rotated until the molded form takes hold.   The mold is cooled, and the material shrinks so that it can effectively be removed from the mold. Obviously, the plastic materials are tough in nature, and they also form a seamless material, which adds to the toughness and insulation. Additionally, the coolers are provided with additional insulation. Actually, the roto-molded process has been around for some time, expanding into the recreational area with the construction of kayaks. Yeti actually does such a good job of promoting their coolers that many outdoorsmen think of them as the only coolers with such qualities. However, a June/ July Outdoor Life review would suggest otherwise.   The magazine selected coolers from seven different manufacturers that used the same roto-molded process, and they assessed coolers of similar size according to 12 different criteria. One cooler was given an exceptional grade of four stars Igloo. Four manufacturers received three and a half stars: Pelican, Canyon, Yeti and Coleman.   Engel and K2 coolers received three stars. Recommended retail prices range from Canyons low of $400 to Yetis high of $500.

Putnam announced on Friday that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service is now accepting applications for the Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program. The sign-up period will run from June 6 through July 18 and is available for non-industrial private forest landowners. The southern pine beetle is one of the most destructive forest pests in the Southeast, Putnam said. By taking preventative measures now, Floridas private landowners can greatly reduce their risk of timber loss during future outbreaks. Periodic outbreaks can rapidly kill millions of pine trees and deplete tens of thousands of acres of timber resources. The most recent series of major southern pine beetle outbreaks resulted in an estimated $59 million in timber loss between 1999 and 2002. The best way to minimize timber losses from southern pine beetle and other bark beetle attacks is by reducing stand susceptibility through active forest management, said Jay Tucker, senior CFA forester with Florida Forest Service. Management practices such as thinning stands before they become overstocked, reducing understory competition, planting less-susceptible pine species on appropriate sites and harvesting diseased or stagnant stands can greatly improve the health and vigor of pine stands and decrease the likelihood of outbreaks. The Southern Pine Beetle Assistance Program is offered for private lands in 44 northern Florida counties. The program provides incentive payments for the following: Conducting a first pulpwood thinning. Conducting prescribed burning operations. Conducting mechanical underbrush treatments. Planting longleaf or slash pine. Since 2005, we have assisted many private forest landowners through this program, said Jim Karels, director of the Florida Forest Service. More than 150,000 Florida acres have been treated for southern pine beetle prevention. Qualified landowners may apply for no more than two approved preventative practices per year. Funding requests may not exceed $10,000 annually. All qualifying applications will be evaluated and ranked for approval. This program is supported through a grant from the U.S. Forest Service. To learn more about this and other landowner assistance programs and to obtain an application form, contact your local Florida Forest Service office or visit www.FreshFromFlorida. com/SouthernPineBeetle/ Prevention. In Union County, landowners can contact Tucker at 386496-2190 or Jay.Tucker@ freshfromflorida.com. For landowners in Bradford County, contact Andy Lamborn at 904-964-2461 or Andy. Lamborn@freshfromflorida. com. The Florida Forest Service manages more than 1 million acres of public forestland, while protecting 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire. hooked this 3-foot spinner shark at Flagler yards offshore from their kayak.

Kite said. Tomlinson said Kite, who played center field for the Tigers, has the one thing that coaches at any level cant teachspeed. It was rare for an opposing batter to hit a ball over Kites head, he added. He was probably, by far, the fastest player on our team, Tomlinson said. Because of his value in center field, Kite didnt get a lot of chances to show off what he can do on the mound, but Tomlinson said pitching is something Kite can also do and do well. He has a strong arm, Tomlinson said. He actually couldve pitched a lot more for us. Speed is an asset for Kite when batting as well. Tomlinson said Kite is not going to hit home runs, but sometimes all he needs to do is put the ball into play as hes capable of beating out infield grounders for hits. McAlister said he received no interest from other schools, so he jumped on the offer Trinity Baptist made. Im excited to see how it goes, McAlister said. Tomlinson said he is proud of all four players, but added that it felt really good to see McAlister get a chance. McAlister wasnt always a starter and had to fight through injuries, but the right fielder made his mark. Hes worked hard and battled through adversity, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said McAlister worked hard to improve his batting, and it showed this past season. McAlister batted over .500 at the start of the season and finished with a team-leading .339 average. That says a lot about him getting ready for the next level, Tomlinson said. McAlister also achieved something not every player does, Tomlinson said. He was able to evaluate his own play and determine what it was he was doing wrong without coaches having to tell him. He got to the point where he could say, I know what I did wrong. I know how to fix it. I think that kind of stood out to me, Tomlinson said. Unlike his teammates, Starling is heading out of state for his chance to keep playing, but there is some familiarity involved with Milligan College. Starling said his grandfather went to school there, while an uncle knows Ray Smith, one of the assistant coaches. Starling said he liked the coaches and the players when he got a chance to meet them. I got to go up there on a visit, he said. It felt like family up there. Tomlinson said Starling, who plays shortstop, is really no different from Hersey, Kite and McAlister in that he doesnt accept failure. He works hard to be successful and expects the same of his teammates. He may not be vocal when he first arrives at Milligan, but it wont take long for Starling to become a leader, Tomlinson said. Milligan may not realize what a versatile player its getting in Starling, Tomlinson said, alluding to the fact that Starling can play in the outfield if need be. Hes fast enough, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to play defensively in the outfield. As for his usual position at shortstop, he has a range that makes him successful. He can cover some ground, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to make the throws from deep in the hole. Tomlinson said Starling has shown in practice that he probably should hit more home runs than he does, but with his speed he can turn any hit into the gap into a triple. Hes going to battle at the plate, Tomlinson said. He does some have some pop in his bat. All four players said they will be working hard over the summer. Kites mindset probably sums up what each player thinks. Im a decent ball player, Kite said, but I can always get better. Its sure to be quite a mixture of emotions when the players get to step onto the field for the first time as college players. Starling said it will be a little overwhelming, but Im going to take it one step at a time. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, June 12, 2014 The Keystone Youth Soccer Club Premiere U18 travel team won the Spring North Florida Youth Soccer League U18 division title and also went on to win the playoff for The Tri-League Title. and coach Branden Waters.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Undeterred by its inability to expand straight down U.S. 301, Starke has hit on a new way to expand its tax base. The citys water and wastewater utilities have been the carrot dangled to those developing outside the city encouraging them to annex. In fact, the citys code says service wont be extended to those outside the city limits unless they agree to annexation, and only rare exception has been made. Those who have been extended utilities outside city limits pay 1.5 times the monthly cost as a way to make up for the annual property taxes the city is not receiving from those landowners. After annexing and then reversing the annexation of the future Badcock Furniture development and other properties, the city commission now understands that if the land isnt contiguous and there isnt a cooperative landowner, annexation isnt an option. In the aftermath of the annexation reality check, the city commission has been considering other ways INSIDE: Photos from BHS and Northside Selling Bradford County Bradford reading, math, science scores up overall BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor As is usually true of each years FCAT test, there are results to brag about and some head-scratchers. The remaining test scores for grades four and up were released last week, and every grade but fifth improved in reading, with 10 th grade making notable progress in closing the achievement gap with the state. On the other hand is the eighthgrade performance on the math test, down dramatically for the second year in a row, with nearly 60 percent of the class failing to rise above Level 1. FCAT scores fall into one of five categories. Level 3 scores are satisfactory, and Level 5 represents mastery of the most challenging content, but Level 1 indicates the students are struggling to grasp the concepts. Some disappointments in the math and reading results were soothed by the science results, which were up at most schools. Reading The percentage of fourth-graders scoring well on FCAT reading climbed from 47 to 50 percent, which was the highest percentage in the district except for the 10 th grade, which went from 46 to 51 percent. At both Brooker and Southside elementary schools, the percentage was up 18 points. The Brooker fourth grades average score was also up 15 points, and Southsides was up 5 points. Hampton had the highest mean score, and its percent passing the test was up 7 percent. Brooker was still the lowest performing school, and 29 percent of its students scored in the lowest level. Fourth-grade reading scores were down at Starke and Lawtey elementary schools. From 58 percent of its students at Level 3 or above, Starke fell to 43 percent, and its average score slipped five points. At Lawtey, the score was down 4 points, and the percent passing was down 11 percent. The middle schools FCAT reading progress was exemplified by a 10-percent jump in the percentage of sixth-graders scoring Level 3 or above. In the eighth grade, it was 9 percent, and in the seventh grade it was up 2 percent. In addition to these increases, the mean score for each grade was up, too. At the high school, the percent passing was up 5 percent in both the ninth and 10 th grades, which pushed the 10 th grade to 51 percent. Thats up 20 percent from 2011, when only 31 percent of 10 th -graders scored Level 3 or above. Districtwide, fifth-grade reading performance was down 6 percent. Lawtey, Brooker and Hampton all saw improvement, with Lawteys percentage passing climbing 20 points See FCAT, 3A WERE OUT! 6. For more from graduation night, see Regional News.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A man is in jail in Bradford County, accused of raping a teenager in his care. Gabriel M. Gattis, 36, currently faces one count of sexual assault on a victim over 12 and under 18. Gattis was picked up in Escambia County around 3 a.m. on June 8. Though the crime allegedly took place on Redgrave Street in Starke, and his warrant was issued containing a Green Cove Springs address, his arrest information includes a Pensacola apartment as his home address. The Starke Police Department had been trying to contact Gattis earlier this year, although he only responded to a single message, saying he was unavailable to come to the station for an interview. As of the end of March, he had failed to respond to any other messages, so a warrant for his arrest was requested and issued. According to the probable cause information submitted with the warrant request, an investigator with the Department of Children and Families contacted the police department about the sexual assault allegations in early February. One victim described being sexually assaulted by Gattis in June of 2012. Another described an attempted assault by Gattis in October of the same year. Gattis is being held in the Bradford County Jail with bond set at $500,000. Gattis See TAX, 6A

There will be inflatables, train rides, sno-cones & more... Woods seeks to retain Starke seat The following is a statement of intent to seek public office submitted by the candidate. The submission deadline for city commission candidates is Monday, July 21, at 5 p.m. To the citizens of the city of Starke, I would like to take this opportunity to announce my intent to seek re-election for the office of city commissioner for District 3. I am Travis Woods, now serving as your District 3 city commissioner. I have lived in the city of Starke since 1958. I have been married to Ann Woods for the past 50 years, and we have two children, Chanda Reddish, and Jason and Tracey Woods. We have six grandchildren. I retired from the state of Florida Drivers License Division where I served as a supervisor. I am an active member of the Madison Street Baptist Church. As your District 3 city commissioner, I am pleased to share with you a few of the accomplishments that I been proud to be a part of as your commissioner. We have upgraded our waste water plant from a Class B sludge (requiring disposal at the landfill) to a Class AA producing plant that the sludge can be land applied for fertilizer. This accomplishment has placed the city of Starke ahead of the curve in meeting the increasing DEP rules concerning sludge disposal. As your District 3 city commissioner, we were faced with providing a modern fire station to house our fire department employees and equipment or face ISO insurance rating drop and an increase in insurance premiums. At this time the city of Starke commissioners agreed to liquidate some property that had not been utilized, and used those funds to completely remodel the old library building, and constructed a new four bay fire station to house our fire trucks and tankers. This action resulted not only in a suitable housing for our fireman, but provided the much needed shelter to protect our fire trucks, pumpers and other fire equipment. We did receive a much better ISO rating and our citizens received a reduction in their insurance premium. In 2007, the city commissioners completed a total systemwide electric upgrade. This was a one-year project consisting of replacing distribution transformers, power poles, lines and equipment. Redesigning the Call Street power substation removing 50 year old transformers and regulators. This resulted in our line loss decreasing from 13 percent to 5 percent, resulting in $120,000 savings. I have been active with the beautification of our downtown area working with the state inmate squads and city staff to keep our downtown area attractive and helping our business owners in attracting patrons. I am very enthusiastic in the Christmas season with decorations and lighting of our streets. I currently serve on the city of Starke Tree Board, designed to protect the trees within our city. We have been awarded grants to plant trees annually to coincide with Arbor Day activities. We have completed our second phase of road paving and street resurfacing the streets in our city and the result is we now have safer streets to travel on. We budget each and every year for street paving/resurfacing and utilize collected impact money to help with the cost. I serve on the city of Starke Pension Board as a trustee for the general employees. We meet quarterly to decide the best options for the investment of the pension funds. As a pension fiduciary, my responsibilities are, to act solely in the interest of plan members and their beneficiaries and with the exclusive purpose of providing benefits to them, following the plan documents, diversifying plan investments and paying only reasonable plan expenses. As a city commissioner I was part of completing a territorial agreement with Florida Power and Light and Clay Electric. This agreement resulted in the elimination of duplication of electric service in our city. This past year the city of Starke renewed our solid waste haulers WCA contract. We negotiated not only a reduction in cost to our citizens, we were able to convince our contractor to provide free uniform garbage cans for all residents. For the past seven years I have served on the Florida League of Cities Executive Board that allows me to receive updated information from our local cities. In the future I see many tough issues ahead due to the tough economic times we are in, we will continue to strive toward bringing in new business to Starke that will create new jobs, bring in revenue and develop Starke into a city that our citizens do not have to travel to outside cities for employment, goods or other services. As your city commissioner, I feel with my many years of experience during the slow economic times, I have gained a wealth of knowledge that could be used in the future to help move the city of Starke forward. It has been a pleasure to serve the citizens of Starke in District 3 for the past eight years. I would be very much honored to continue that service for the next four years as your commissioner. Thank you for your continued support and consideration. Capital City Bank Group Foundation has come through for the Bradford County Education Foundation once again with a check for $3,000.

Only Hampton had a higher percentage of fifthgraders scoring at or above grade level. The mean test score was up 4 points at Hampton and 5 points in Lawtey. It was Starke and Southside elementary schools that had the setbacks in fifth grade. Starke slipped 3 percent, but still had 52 percent passing. Southside, on the other hand, tumbled 19 percentage points, so just 36 percent of the students scored Level 3 or above. The mean scores were down, as well. Math Brooker Elementary fourthgraders raised the schools average score 18 points giving it the highest fourth-grade math score in the district, and the percentage of students scoring Level 3 or higher went from 15 percent to 76 percent. Half of the fourth-graders at Starke and Southside elementary schools scored proficient or better in math. This was an improvement of 9 percent at Southside but a decline of 16 percent at Starke. The mean score was preserved at Starke, remaining the second highest in the district, and it climbed 7 points at Southside, placing it just below Starke. Like Southside, Hampton Elementary also had a mean score of 211 points, but it had a smaller percentage of proficient students compared to last year. At Lawtey Elementary, that percentage fell 26 points, and its mean score was down 9 points. Fifth grade was a different story. Lawteys mean score was up, and its percentage passing was up 12 points to 56 percent. Starke Elementary, which had the highest mean score in the district, also had the highest percentage passing, 65 percent, an increase of 14 percentage points. Brookers mean score was right behind Starkes, and 60 percent of its fifth-graders were Level 3 or above, an increase of 16 points. Hampton was up 10 percent, and its mean score grew by 7 points. Unfortunately, there were drops in the results at Southside, and just 27 percent of its fifthgraders scored proficient or better on the math test. Sixth-graders again showed progress in math at the middle school, but just 36 percent scored at Level 3 or higher. Compare that to the 39 percent who scored at Level 1. Performance was down in the seventh and eighth grades. Only 37 percent of seventh-graders scored Level 3 or above, while 34 percent were at Level 1. But that was still much better than the eighth-grade results. Last year, the percentage of eighthgraders scoring satisfactorily or better fell to 11 percent. This year, only 5 percent scored Level 3 or higher on math. Meanwhile, nearly 60 percent scored at Level 1. High school level math performance will be revealed by the end-of-course exam results, which were not released as of press time. Science High schoolers are also taking end-of-course exams for science and other courses, but the FCAT science test was still taken by the districts fifthand eighthgraders. The mean score for fifth grade was maintained, but 46 percent of the students scored Level 3 or higher compared to 43 percent last year. The mean test scores were up the most at Lawtey Elementary, 7 points, and Starke Elementary, 4 points. The percent passing was up 23 percent at Lawtey and 14 percent at Starke. Eleven percent more passed at Brooker, which maintained the highest mean score in the district, and 15 percent more performed well at Hampton, where the mean score was up one point. Fifth-grade science scores were down on average at Southside Elementary. The mean test score was down 4 points, and the percent at Level 3 or above was down 12 percent to just 27 percent. That percentage was up 7 points for the eighth grade at the middle school. There the mean score was up 4 points to 196, which like the fifth grade, is just 5 points behind the state average. Except for the students taking retakes of the reading exam to meet graduation requirements, this is the last time the FCAT 2.0 reading, writing and math will be administered. New assessments are being developed to replace those tests as the state moves from the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards to the new Florida Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Fifthand eighth-graders will continue to take the FCAT 2.0 science test.

Thursday, June 12, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Summertime is ramping up, with temperatures regularly hitting 90 degrees or more. And if sweltering outdoor weather isnt enough, the season also brings an unwelcome visitor, the yellow fly. This critter doesnt buzz or hum like a mosquito, so the first sign that one is after you is the sharp sting you feel when it has already got you! I was interested to learn that only the female yellow fly bites. Both sexes feed on plant nectar and pollen to obtain energy, but the female feeds on blood to develop eggs. These flies can attack throughout the day, but are most active during the late afternoon and on cloudy days. They are especially common near large bodies of water, which explains why they always seem to be hanging around my home on Kingsley Lake. Female yellow flies deposit their egg masses on plants, rocks or sticks over or near water. Within five to 12 days, the eggs hatch and the larvae drop into the water or mud where they feed on organic debris or other small organisms. They pass the winter in the pupa or dormant stage, emerging as adults in the spring. Flies are on the wing in Florida from March to November, although the peak season is April through June. There are no effective means for controlling yellow-fly larvae, but mosquito repellents can be moderately effective against adults except when the flies are very abundant or very hungry. These flies tend to remain in or near forests and are rarely found in large numbers far from the shelter of trees. The best means of protection against yellow flies is to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, including head-nets and gloves, when outdoorsan uncomfortable proposition during the hot Florida summer. DEET is the most effective repellent. Because it is not as effective against flies as it is against mosquitoes, it should be reapplied more often. Biting flies are most active in stillair areas. Increasing air movement in porches, patios, and picnic areas will help keep them away. Also, burning repellent candles and torches containing citronella may help. Because most biting flies rest in vegetation, pruning shrubs and mowing weedy areas may promote environmental airflow and reduce their numbers around your home.

Nineteen class members and 7 guests enjoyed a delicious meal and a good Brown Wise, Doris Norman Smith, Marian McRae Conner, Grace Dickinson Malone, Peggy Tilley Godwin, 1949 and 1950 BHS classmates reunite to make up for the lost revenue. There is a realization that the ban on utility connections isnt compatible with the vision to promote development and denies the city new customers, but the surcharge on monthly usage apparently isnt enough of a consolation prize for the restrictions on annexation. Raising rates further isnt an option as the state has capped rates on unincorporated properties. The commission instead discussed hiking connection and other fees associated with tying a new customer to the system, but those fees, unlike property taxes, are one-time charges. To the rescue with a possible solution are City Clerk Ricky Thompson and the citys new engineer, Mittauer and Associates. Pointing to a policy that already exists in the city of Live Oak, Thompson says the city can tax utility customers outside the city limits but only if they agree. Live Oaks agreement with unincorporated utility customers allows for a payment in lieu of annexation. Live Oak doesnt charge those customers a higher monthly charge, but once a year they make a payment to the city based on the value of their property and the citys current ad valorem tax rate, just like they were paying property tax. The payment would not appear on a Starke customers annual tax bill. The city would bill them separately, and because its like a tax payment instead of a utility bill, the revenue can fund general government instead of the enterprise fund. Thompson said this was the fairest solution because customers inside and outside the city limits would be paying the same rates the same water and sewer rates and the same property tax rates. The catch is the resident or business owner would have to agree to this arrangement, which means instead of the city saying annex in order to get utilities, it would be saying agree to this annual property tax payment. Thompson doesnt yet have examples to compare the current scenario to the Live Oak policy. He did say that current utility customers outside city limits would not be required to sign a contract but could go on paying the higher utility rates. The commission will have to get up to speed on how all of this is supposed to work before making a decision. There was still a lot of confusion during the last board meeting.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, June 12, 2014 Here we are: Getting the word out about Bradford County BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Interest in economic development has led to recent discussion of tax incentives, getting Starkes Community Redevelopment Agency back on track and setting a vision for the next 10 years. Development is partially about recruiting business to come here. Its also about promoting what is already here so the county doesnt get left out when developers are looking for a place to set up shop. One thing ostensibly working in Bradfords favor is its involvement with the North Florida Economic Development Partnership. The executive director of that partnership, Jeff Hendry, visited the county commission in March for an update and shared information about the partnerships website to promote the region. Our job over the last three years has been to define what our region is, Hendry said, including an examination of the labor force the available resources. The work has been compiled on a website for the partnership which doubles as a marketing tool for the region, www.nflp.org. Land, infrastructure and access to larger markets are touted characteristics of the region, as well as the proximity of major research universities, which are often taken for granted, and workforce development assets. Bradford, Baker and Union counties are among the 15 partners, and all are listed as showing growth since the year 2000, although Bradford is just above Levy and Putnam in terms of percentage. Someone curious about Bradford County could find a snapshot at www.nflp.org. The countys vital statistics are listed, including its growth since 1980. The county is said to be 51 st in population in the state, containing a tenth of the states population. The site includes family, housing and employment statistics. Bradford has a better quality of life than the state average based on the crime rate, but it falls behind the state in education based on the percentage of high school and college graduates. Key industries listed for the partnerships counties include manufacturing, timber, distribution, agriculture, technology, health care, aviation services and products, and tourism. Bradfords picture has not been fully painted, however. The sites higher education map could be considered incomplete as it fails to list either the Andrews Center or Watson Center branches of Santa Fe College or the BradfordUnion Technical Center. (The only Santa Fe campus acknowledged is Gainesville.) It isnt immediately clear if the Enterprise Park listed refers to the industrial park in Starke or the property available for development at the Keystone Heights Airpark. In any case, only one is listed. The airport itself doesnt appear to be a listed asset elsewhere on the site either. Shands Starke Regional Medical Center was not overlooked in the compilation of health care resources. The city of Starke is not among the electric utilities listed, which some might consider a plus given its costs comparison with private power companies, but theres no opportunity to tout the positives either, such as the reliability of the system and efficiency of service. It may be taken for granted that the city also has a water and wastewater utility, as does Lawtey, and Brooker and Hampton both have water. Questions have also been raised about why available real estate hasnt been listed on the site and who is responsible for compiling and sharing this information with the partnership. Only two sites in Bradford County are currently listed. The partnership has its success stories, with jobs created in Suwannee and Madison counties, for example, but direct benefits for Bradford have yet to manifest. Tourism In February, during a discussion of using bed tax money to promote events for local businesses that attract tourists, county commission Chairman Danny Riddick brought up the North Central Florida Regional Planning Councils ability to promote the area for a cost. From equestrian opportunities and outdoor recreation, to a motorsport park and seasonal and monthly festivals, the area has a lot to promote, he said, and he wanted Tourist Development Council dollars to pay for it. TDC Chairman John Miller wasnt averse, calling Bradford a hidden resource, but other commissioners werent ready to jump on board. The planning council staffs and houses the office of The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, which promotes the region is through the website www.naturalnorthflorida.com. In its own words it provides information fulfillment services for visitors wishing to explore the beauty of Natural North Florida. The website promotes events, attractions and recreational opportunities like bike and equestrian trails. There is even a companion website Fish Natural North Florida (www.fnnf.com) detailing the best places to fish throughout the region. Steven Dopp from the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council came to the county commission in March to discuss the benefits of membership. In addition to Internet exposure, travel writers are brought in who in turn publicize the amenities they visit with newspaper, magazine and online articles. Dopp said when counties pool their resources, they can undertake joint marketing campaigns that benefit the entire area. The county and TDC have yet to agree to split the $4,000 in annual dues to Original Florida. Currently, Bradford County is only represented on the site through its most well known events. The fair, Strawberry Festival and Starke Bike Fest are the only attractions listed for the county. Other opportunities On June 3, Starke Commissioner Tommy Chastain had questions about opportunities for economic development assistance through the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council and why the city wasnt taking advantage of them. Mayor Carolyn Spooner, the citys representative to the council, confirmed services in economic development planning are available; its just a matter of reaching out for that help. According to the planning councils website, the region has been designated an economic development region by the U.S. Economic Development Administration since 1978, and its the planning councils job to create and update an comprehensive economic strategy for the region. Based on that strategy, the region becomes eligible for federal grants funding. Beyond that, the website says the council is involved in providing technical assistance to local governments and economic development organizations to promote growth. That includes economic impact modeling for grant applications as well as grant procurement and administration services. The city intends to contact the planning council for more information. Envision Over the course of several sessions last year, leaders from business, government, education and other fields met over several sessions to brainstorm the issues facing the county in terms of technology, infrastructure, workforce development, health care and higher education. The result was a report with recommendations to help local leaders in these sectors make the county a post-recession success story. Follow up meetings on matters like funding assistance have also taken place. The next meeting is a lunch scheduled for Thursday, June 19, at noon at the Downtown Grill. The North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Starke and Bradford county commissions and Dug Jones from the Santa Fe Envision Board will be holding a joint meeting to discuss how to take the Envision plan and move forward. The Bradford County Tourist Development Council and Bradford County Development Authority members have been invited to the session, as has Crawford Powell of Impact Development Group and the North Florida Economic Development Partnership. Chamber President Pam Whittle said this is an opportunity for the various board members to come together and discuss the issues facing all of them. Turn your idea into a business Have a great idea?

Downtown shop owners will be invited to place signs on their buildings once the research is complete. The Richard and Pace building housed one of Starkes earliest department stores. It and another building tucked away behind it were significant because they stored much of the merchandise delivered to and from Starke on the railroad during Starkes formative years.

Gordon Smith took the hot seat in the dunking booth in the name of raising funds as well. The renovation of the dealership began in February and was completed in late May with a hefty multi-million-dollar price tag. Director of Operations/ Human Resource Manager Frank Bisacky said the process involved the complete refurbishment of both the exterior and the interior of the existing structure and was geared to both improving service to the customers and to making their experience at Murray Ford a pleasant one. Everywhere one looks, there are details designed to enhance the customers experience, from granite counter tops in the restrooms to new, highdefinition televisions and vending machines (offering a wider range of choices) in the customer waiting area. Also new is the business center, which offers high speed Internet for customers use while they wait. Wi-Fi is available over the entire lot outside to allow customers to look at the dealerships inventory online while they walk around. The service department has also been improved and augmented, being the main factor in the cost of the renovation. New lifts have been installed that can handle recreational vehicles up to 53 feet in length. New electronic equipment has been added, which allows the service department to work on any make and model. The new Murray Quick Lane Tire Center is designed to serve everyone and carries a full line of tire types and sizes for passenger vehicles. We spent a lot of money to give our customers better, quicker and more complete service, Bisacky said. We have improved the quality and scope of our service department and the breadth and depth of our entire operation. We are part of this community. This is a family owned business, not a big corporation. Our first concern when making any decision is, What is the right thing to do? That is what we do. A customer is not just a salethey are members of our community, and we want to do the best job we can in meeting their needs. BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor The Northeast Florida Regional Chamber of Commerces Tourism Development Council wants to attract more attention to Starke and Bradford County history. What they really hope to accomplish is to highlight Starke and Bradford County history, using resources at hand. Those resources include the Eugene Matthews Bradford County Historical Museum and now plaques highlighting the Call Street historic district. The Call Street district is included in the National Registry of historic places and covers a large swath of downtown Starke. Over the last few months, research has been completed, and metal plaques have been added to four buildings with roles in Starke history and Call Streets cityscape. More plaques are planned. The hope is to have a selfguided walking tour of Starke and Call Street history up and down the blocks. The first building already identified is the Richard and Pace Building, which sits on the south side of Call Street, right at the railroad tracks. Its companion building, the first Bradford Bank (now housing Tony and Als Deli), sits right next door and also has a new sign. Two additional buildings got signs last week: the chamber building, which is also the second Bradford Bank building, and the Magnolia Hotel. All of those buildings except the chamber building were constructed in the late 1800s. The chamber building was constructed during the early years of the 20 th century. The Richard and Pace building replaced a former wooden frame that may have been victim to a fire. The Bradford Bank was the New signs highlight Call Street history side of her building.

I kick myself every now and then for ever stopping working, Griffis said. I miss the work and the satisfaction that comes from building something. the field of business in which he would excel. He went to work for Jimmy Moore at Moores Sun Spot in Starke, located where Walgreens is now. Moore built fiberglass boats and sold Mercury outboards. Griffis quickly found a niche in the business. People were making boats and selling boats, but nobody was repairing fiberglass boats so I learned how to do it, Griffis said. Griffis worked for Moore a long time for minimum wage until one day he asked for a 15cent raise. When Moore refused, Griffis gave his two weeks notice. Griffis had taken over the $18,000 mortgage on a piece of property owned by his father at the behest of Bud Mizell of Southern Discount (now CT City Financial). He rebuilt the house on the property and built a workshop to start his own business making fiberglass boats. Griffis and Sons opened for business, producing Stumpknocker Boats in several styles. Named after a small panfish in the bream family known for being stubborn and mean, the boats were an immediate success. The boats were really nothing fancy, Griffis said. They were just Cracker fishing boats, but people seemed to like them. Son Woodrow Jr. took over the main running of the business, but Griffis did not completely retire until about three years ago. The Stumpknocker name and assets were sold in 2004 to All Craft Marine. In 2009, Woodrow Jr. went back into the business as Griffis Fiberglass and has been successful working with St. Augustine Marine. Woodrow Jr. said he owes everything to his father. He taught me everything I know about fiberglass and building boats, he said. Griffis now spends his days feeding a yard full of squirrels and four goats and keeping his numerous bird feeders well stocked. He also enjoys watching Westerns on television and listening to vintage country music, especially the music of Hank Williams Sr. Despite all this, he is occasionally restless in his retirement. of it. We also got to see a lot of castles and old, historical places and things. When he arrived home from Germany, Griffis wasted no time in going to work. Hampered by his lack of education (he was only able to complete the second grade due to family responsibilities), he bought a truck and went to work in the scrap metal business. Some time later, he went to work as a mechanic for Shorty Livey at his garage in Starke at the corner of Pratt Street and U.S. 301, where he said he worked on a lot of vehicles from the Hercules Powder Company. Griffis married Olga Pauline Michaelchuck in 1947. The marriage lasted 57.5 years and produced five children: Viola, Victor, Woodrow Jr., Lucille and Eleanor. Griffis now presides over a large family, which includes 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Family is the most important thing to me, Griffis said. I value greatly any time I can spend with them. In 1961, Griffis started out in fighting, but just in time to join the occupying force. They moved on into Germany after two weeks in France. The war in Europe was over, but it was still smoking when we arrived, Griffis said. They were still fighting in the Pacific, but that really didnt affect us. Spending two and a half years in Germany, Griffis worked picking up and delivering prisoners and helping to chase down SS members still at large. Most of the German people were not Nazis, or if they had joined them, it was in name only, Griffis said. Many of them were forced to join the party to keep their families safe. As for the SS, most of the big guys had gotten out of the country, but there were still quite a few of the lowerranking men to the rounded up. Griffis saw service all over Germany in places like Mannheim, Darmstadt and Frankfort. He said the German people were a little unfriendly at first, but over the time he was there they seemed to become easier to get along with. While Griffis and his friends were kept busy, they never were subjected to the horrors of the concentration camps. They also found time to do a little sightseeing on their time off. Griffis remembered seeing the worlds largest wine keg in Heidelberg. The thing was so huge it had never been totally filled up, Griffis said. They said that a king one time filled it up about half way. It was so big that there was a dance floor built on top Thursday, June 12, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 3B Noegels Auto Sales888-964-64611018 N.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Monitor and Times While most people think of World War II-era military service in terms of battles, marches and invasions, there were many who served in support positions both during and after the conflict. These jobs were just as necessary and sometimes carried more responsibility than the combat positions. As one longtime Bradford County resident put it, Someone had to clean up the mess and see that problems didnt start up again. Woodrow Griffis Sr. was born on Jan. 26, 1929, on his parents farm, located about 1 mile from where Camp Blandings A gate is now. His father, Leonard, and grandfather, Henry, had adjacent 40-acre homesteads. Both men farmed to feed their families and were accomplished horse traders, which had less to do with horses as it did with bartering for needed items. It was during the Depression, so no one had any money, Griffis remembered. You had something someone needed, and they had something you needed, so you just made it work. A lot of people survived that way. Griffis remembered the hard work required on the farm, but he also has fond memories of Saturdays, when he could go to Starke with a quarter in his pocket and go the Ritz Theatre, where he could buy a bag of popcorn, a drink and a ticket to see the show. Griffis enlisted at age 16, lying about his age to do so. (He should have been 17 to be allowed to join the Army.) He did so with his parents approval, after spending a little time talking his mother into it. I was the oldest of 17 children (five girls and 12 boys, one of whom dies at 1 month of age), and someone had to help out, Griffis said. I was working for 50 cents a day, and the Army was paying $21 a month, plus they gave you room and board as well as all your clothes. Griffis was assigned to the 383 rd Lightening Security Police, receiving training at Kewana, Miss. It was there he met his two best buddies, who worked with him for the next two years: Lewis Gresset and a man named Guererro, who was originally from Mexico. The trio arrived in France in early 1944, missing the and best friend Lewis Gresset served together all the way through training and two-andone-half years in Germany in the 383rd Lightening helping to track down former SS members.

Hersey said he looks forward to the level playing field at Trinity Baptist. It is a firstyear program, so there are no established positions. Its pretty exciting, Hersey said. We all get the same chance to see how good we are. Hersey said he looked at several schools in Pensacola and Enterprise, Ala., before receiving an offer from Trinity. I figured that wasnt a long ways from home, he said. Hersey was a catcher and in the pitching rotation at UCHS. Tomlinson said Hersey is a player who not only understands the game, but one who can play anywhere. Trinity Baptist, really, is getting nine players in one, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said at the catcher position, Hersey excelled at blocking balls that other catchers cant. Hes a grinder, Tomlinson said. Hes going to get dirty back there behind the plate. His experience behind the plate helped him on the mound. He understands how to approach batters, Tomlinson said, adding, Hes able to throw any pitch he has for a strike at any time. Hersey said hes not sure where Trinity coaches want him to play, but it doesnt matter to him. Ill play anywhere they need me to, he said. Offensively, Hersey has good control of the bat and is able to lay down bunts for singles, Tomlinson said. The coach added that Hersey doesnt have blazing speed, but is capable of stretching singles into doubles. Kite wasnt looking to play anywhere until Union assistant coach Lamar Waters informed him of Trinity Baptists interest in him.

Many Sizes!!! Dear Editor: I had a thought (a semi-annual event, I admit). -Why dont we take the $338 billion that our states and federal government are annually spending on those persons who came into this country without our permission, and spend it on something else. There are many possible places to divert these funds, but the one I had in mind was.. .USE IT TO PROVIDE HEALTH CARE FOR OUR VETERANS!!!!! Perhaps the scandal involving the denying of care to our real American heroes is not about sufficient funds. Maybe it has to do with incompetence-or a simple lack of gratitude-or a combination of the two. But if it does boil down to money, then, for me, its a no-brainer. (Of course every citizen will see the same kind of problems that the VA is experiencing as our government moves to take control of all the healthcare in this country.) Wake up America!! We should all be ashamed of ourselves. We have elected the people responsible for such things, or stayed home and failed to vote at all. In either case, it is our government, our country, our ultimate responsibility. We are failing to support our military, those who have enabled us to take advantage of the boundless opportunities that exist in this land. We are becoming a disgrace to the human race. Leonard C. Young Keystone Heights Dear Editor: As a twenty year Navy veteran and former Clay County Public High School History teacher of 18 years, I am tired and disgusted with the nonsensical, baseless attacks against Common Core State Standards, known in our State as the Florida Standards, running rampant in Clay County. The Florida Standards are straightforward, academic benchmarks in Math and English-Language Arts outlining the basic skills and knowledge our children in Floridas public schools should master by each grade level. While Floridas previous statewide academic standards were more rigorous than those in most states, they were not rigorous enough. How do we know? Graduates who enroll in Florida State College at Jacksonville immediately after graduation require remediation for skills they should have mastered in high school. Worse, more than 20 percent of Florida high school graduates cannot pass the military entrance exam. When ill-prepared students take these remedial courses, fail to join the military or complete vocational training, you and I as taxpayers foot the bill, and were talking billions of dollars every year. How? They earn significantly lower wages over the course of their lifetimes, and worse, become more likely to go on means-tested, taxpayer-funded government assistance. This translates into billions of lost wages and taxpayer dollars from our economy on an annual basis. Detractors would have you believe that these standards are the Armageddon for public education, yet they ignore these simple facts by spreading irrational rumors and fear tactics. They have no solutions or better alternatives. And even though they had ample opportunity to voice their concerns more than four years ago when our state board of education openly and constitutionally reviewed and adopted these stands over the course of several month, none was to be found. Let me be clear: These standards are not a political manifesto. They do not usher in a national curriculum. They are not forced upon our state. And for Gods sake, they do not influence childrens sexual preferences! You can read them for yourself at http://www.fldoe.org/BII/ curriculum/SSS/. If you as a parent or citizen are concerned about political bias in our classrooms, then direct your concerns to local education officials. They are the ones, after all, who are deciding what textbooks and materials our children are using in the classroom, not Washington. I stand in solidarity with all who oppose a federal takeover of education. However, when a few dozen states get together to standardize standards, that makes perfect sense to me as a parent, retired educator and taxpayer. In America, the land of opportunity, a childs zip code should not be the deciding factor for what expectations are leveled against him at school. It seems opponents of these new standards should rather embrace complacency and the status quos mediocrity instead of raise the bar for what we expect of our students. I thank Governor Scott, the state board of education and the legislature for choosing to keep these high stands in place. I also commend any local education officials who are committed to faithfully implementing these standards in our classroom. After all, their success depends on your good work. The scare tactics must stop. Our children, their future, and our states long-term prosperity depend on us rising above the Letters editor@bctelegraph.com health care is better use madness so they can have a shot of success. Sincerely, Roy Lyons Middleburg Union County High School baseball players Colten McAlister (left) and Chris Starling sign letters of intent respectively. Corey Hersey and Cole Kite also signed letters of intent to play at Trintiy Baptist at a separate was unable to obtain photos. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Four recent Union County High School graduates are getting the chance to play collegiate baseball, with Chris Starling signing a letter of intent to play at Milligan College in northeast Tennessee, while Corey Hersey, Cole Kite and Colten McAlister all signed with Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville. Its a great opportunity, Starling said. Its always been my dream to play at the next level. Hersey said, It feels good to go to the next level and play, with McAlister adding, Its something Ive always wanted since I was a little boy. Kite admitted that words couldnt describe his feelings, but did say, I never really thought I had a chance to play at the next level. Union head coach Brian Tomlinson the four players always remained loose and knew how to have fun, but they took the sport seriously. They did what they needed to do to be successful and did what their coaches asked of them. Those four were instrumental in us winning state two years ago, Tomlinson said. The fact those guys get to go on and play at the next level says a lot about them and all the hard work theyve done. For Hersey, Kite and McAlister, its a chance to remain teammates. It feels good to have all your friends on the same team, Hersey said, with Kite adding, I feel pretty good. I get to play with my friends and play ball some more.

Previously, fishermen who made a large catch of crappie could place the fish in a cooler and leave them overnight to be cleaned the next day. With the Yeti Coolers, fishermen can ice the fish down and leave them for a week before doing the dirty work. Fishermen can place the coolers in the boat and stand on them for a better view of the water.

It was lucky for the participants because the winning catch was over 20 pounds, which was one of the heavier weights all year. Jeremy Dohrn and Buddy May made that catch, but most of the entries were higher than normal. Dolphin, snapper and grouper reports have been productive on both coasts recently.

The coolers are essentially made by a rotationally molded process, where plastic materials are placed into a mold under pressure and continually rotated until the molded form takes hold. The mold is cooled, and the material shrinks so that it can effectively be removed from the mold. Obviously, the plastic materials are tough in nature, and they also form a seamless material, which adds to the toughness and insulation. Additionally, the coolers are provided with additional insulation. Actually, the roto-molded process has been around for some time, expanding into the recreational area with the construction of kayaks. Yeti actually does such a good job of promoting their coolers that many outdoorsmen think of them as the only coolers with such qualities. However, a June/ July Outdoor Life review would suggest otherwise. The magazine selected coolers from seven different manufacturers that used the same roto-molded process, and they assessed coolers of similar size according to 12 different criteria. One cooler was given an exceptional grade of four stars Igloo. Four manufacturers received three and a half stars: Pelican, Canyon, Yeti and Coleman. Engel and K2 coolers received three stars. Recommended retail prices range from Canyons low of $400 to Yetis high of $500.

Putnam announced on Friday that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service is now accepting applications for the Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program. The sign-up period will run from June 6 through July 18 and is available for non-industrial private forest landowners. The southern pine beetle is one of the most destructive forest pests in the Southeast, Putnam said. By taking preventative measures now, Floridas private landowners can greatly reduce their risk of timber loss during future outbreaks. Periodic outbreaks can rapidly kill millions of pine trees and deplete tens of thousands of acres of timber resources. The most recent series of major southern pine beetle outbreaks resulted in an estimated $59 million in timber loss between 1999 and 2002. The best way to minimize timber losses from southern pine beetle and other bark beetle attacks is by reducing stand susceptibility through active forest management, said Jay Tucker, senior CFA forester with Florida Forest Service. Management practices such as thinning stands before they become overstocked, reducing understory competition, planting less-susceptible pine species on appropriate sites and harvesting diseased or stagnant stands can greatly improve the health and vigor of pine stands and decrease the likelihood of outbreaks. The Southern Pine Beetle Assistance Program is offered for private lands in 44 northern Florida counties. The program provides incentive payments for the following: Conducting a first pulpwood thinning. Conducting prescribed burning operations. Conducting mechanical underbrush treatments. Planting longleaf or slash pine. Since 2005, we have assisted many private forest landowners through this program, said Jim Karels, director of the Florida Forest Service. More than 150,000 Florida acres have been treated for southern pine beetle prevention. Qualified landowners may apply for no more than two approved preventative practices per year. Funding requests may not exceed $10,000 annually. All qualifying applications will be evaluated and ranked for approval. This program is supported through a grant from the U.S. Forest Service. To learn more about this and other landowner assistance programs and to obtain an application form, contact your local Florida Forest Service office or visit www.FreshFromFlorida. com/SouthernPineBeetle/ Prevention. In Union County, landowners can contact Tucker at 386496-2190 or Jay.Tucker@ freshfromflorida.com. For landowners in Bradford County, contact Andy Lamborn at 904-964-2461 or Andy. Lamborn@freshfromflorida. com.

There was a designated soakfree zone, but for the most part, everybody who wandered onto the field behind the school were setting themselves up for a drenching. Thursday, June 12, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 9B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer For most of the year, students at Starkes Northside Christian Academy soak up knowledge. On June 5, they were just soaked. To celebrate the end of the year, the school hosted a fun day, which included lots of wet fun, ABOVE LEFT: Kole Wilkinson slides into the water. ABOVE: Aniston Pilcher closes her eyes while plunging into the water. LEFT: Teacher Linda Fowler was a popular gets a little payback here against student Mackenzie Bradley. Kayla Hipps squeezes a sponge with every bit of effort she has in order to soak unsuspecting teacher Jamie Garrison. ABOVE: Whos next? Karmen Johnson looks around for victims as she sponges. RIGHT: Hunter Starling squirts one of his classmates. Heads up! Wyatt Konkel is about to get hit with teacher April Pilchers water gun. It wasnt all water-related fun.

Kite said. Tomlinson said Kite, who played center field for the Tigers, has the one thing that coaches at any level cant teachspeed. It was rare for an opposing batter to hit a ball over Kites head, he added. He was probably, by far, the fastest player on our team, Tomlinson said. Because of his value in center field, Kite didnt get a lot of chances to show off what he can do on the mound, but Tomlinson said pitching is something Kite can also do and do well. He has a strong arm, Tomlinson said. He actually couldve pitched a lot more for us. Speed is an asset for Kite when batting as well. Tomlinson said Kite is not going to hit home runs, but sometimes all he needs to do is put the ball into play as hes capable of beating out infield grounders for hits. McAlister said he received no interest from other schools, so he jumped on the offer Trinity Baptist made. Im excited to see how it goes, McAlister said. Tomlinson said he is proud of all four players, but added that it felt really good to see McAlister get a chance. McAlister wasnt always a starter and had to fight through injuries, but the right fielder made his mark. Hes worked hard and battled through adversity, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said McAlister worked hard to improve his batting, and it showed this past season. McAlister batted over .500 at the start of the season and finished with a team-leading .339 average. That says a lot about him getting ready for the next level, Tomlinson said. McAlister also achieved something not every player does, Tomlinson said. He was able to evaluate his own play and determine what it was he was doing wrong without coaches having to tell him. He got to the point where he could say, I know what I did wrong. I know how to fix it. I think that kind of stood out to me, Tomlinson said. Unlike his teammates, Starling is heading out of state for his chance to keep playing, but there is some familiarity involved with Milligan College. Starling said his grandfather went to school there, while an uncle knows Ray Smith, one of the assistant coaches. Starling said he liked the coaches and the players when he got a chance to meet them. I got to go up there on a visit, he said. It felt like family up there. Tomlinson said Starling, who plays shortstop, is really no different from Hersey, Kite and McAlister in that he doesnt accept failure. He works hard to be successful and expects the same of his teammates. He may not be vocal when he first arrives at Milligan, but it wont take long for Starling to become a leader, Tomlinson said. Milligan may not realize what a versatile player its getting in Starling, Tomlinson said, alluding to the fact that Starling can play in the outfield if need be. Hes fast enough, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to play defensively in the outfield. As for his usual position at shortstop, he has a range that makes him successful. He can cover some ground, Tomlinson said. He has the arm to make the throws from deep in the hole. Tomlinson said Starling has shown in practice that he probably should hit more home runs than he does, but with his speed he can turn any hit into the gap into a triple. Hes going to battle at the plate, Tomlinson said. He does some have some pop in his bat. All four players said they will be working hard over the summer. Kites mindset probably sums up what each player thinks. Im a decent ball player, Kite said, but I can always get better. Its sure to be quite a mixture of emotions when the players get to step onto the field for the first time as college players. Starling said it will be a little overwhelming, but Im going to take it one step at a time. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, June 12, 2014 The Keystone Youth Soccer Club Premiere U18 travel team won the Spring North Florida Youth Soccer League U18 division title and also went on to win the playoff for The Tri-League Title. and coach Branden Waters.
