Starke still working to tax outsiders BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Questions remain to be answered before the city of Starke adopts a new policy requiring future utility customers outside the city to agree to pay property taxes. The city is patterning the policy from a development agreement from Live Oak. More is required to tax outside utility customers than approving a policy. The city would have to enter into separate contracts with each and every new utility customer outside the city limits. In exchange for water and sewer, those customers would have to agree to pay an amount every year equivalent to what they would owe in property taxes if they lived inside the city. The agreements would also include a clause committing a property owner to voluntary annexation should the property become contiguous to the city limits, and if its a commercial property, the business owner would be required to purchase a city occupational license even though it conducts business outside the city. Gun play lands four behind bars BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The Union County Sheriffs Office received reports Monday night of four people riding around Lake Butler in a maroon Dodge Intrepid, firing shots while in the neighborhood southwest of Spires IGA and then traveling west on Providence Road (State Road 238). After stopping the vehicle there, deputies confirmed reports that four occupants drove through Lake Butler and fired numerous shots in the air and pointed the firearm at witnesses a man in his mid-30s and a teenage boy. No one was hurt during this incident. All of them are charged with numerous felonies. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Bret Gill and his canine helped the deputies find the firearm the suspects tossed from the right passenger side window before being stopped a Kel-tec 9 mm, which had an empty magazine and had recently been fired, according to UCSOs arrest report. The firearm has been reported stolen in Bradford County and UCSO said finding it could solve additional crimes there. Martavious Antron Albritton of Raiford was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, tampering or destroying evidence all three third-degree felonies and discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. He remains in the Union County Jail under a $91,000 bond. Taylor Lynn Crapps of Hogansville, Georgia, was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, tampering or destroying evidence all three third-degree felonies and discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. She was the driver of the car and remains in the Bradford County Jail under a $500,000 bond. Quandrell Xavier Steele of Lake Butler was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, resisting an officer with violence, and tampering or destroying evidence all four third-degree felonies and discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. He was also charged with indecent exposure, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct, all of which are misdemeanor crimes. He remains in the Union County Jail under a $104,000 bond. John Warren Strickland III of Starke was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, resisting an officer with violence, and tampering or destroying evidence all four third-degree felonies and with discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. He remains in the Union County Jail under a $100,000 bond. According to the report, Crapps claimed that she was told where to drive since she was not familiar with the area and that she heard the gun shots and then realized they were coming from her car, though she didnt see who shot the pistol. Strickland, while being retained in the patrol car, moved his cuffed hands from behind his back to his front, and was ready to kick out the back door in hopes of injuring Deputy Charles Townsend when he opened it. Strickland was re-cuffed and secured in the patrol car with a seat belt. During that time, officers heard glass being broken out of Deputy Robert Fipps patrol car by Steele, which Fipps went over to investigate. When other officers arrived to assist with Strickland and Steele, Steele began kicking and spitting on them. Pepper spray had to be used again to get Steele under control; the first time was to keep him from exiting the broken window. Afterward, Steele moved his cuffed hands around his waist and began urinating inside the patrol car and through the window, exposing himself to passing traffic. Crapps was transported by Townsend. The other three suspects were then transported to the jail by correctional officers and escorted by the Florida Highway Patrol. UCSO credited citizens for helping apprehend the suspects. And thank you to all the citizens that quickly reported this crime and cooperated with great witness statements and accurate reporting of the incident that occurred, the sheriffs office said on its Facebook page. Cooperation like this is what will put them away for a long time. INSIDE: Young Moguls Present Big Plans Tree Planted for Judge Hobbs Taylor Crapps Quandrell Steele Martavious Albritton John Strickland III Shots rang out near Southwest First Terrace and Southwest Eighth Street in Lake Butler. Starke investigating ground in front of hotel BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Calling it a sinkhole might be a little dramatic, but something is definitely going on underground near the Best Western hotel. The ground has begun to give way under the sidewalk between the hotels pool area and U.S. 301. Further evidence of sinking can be seen down the block at the corner of Andrews Street between Powells and Noegels, and, in the other direction, at Charles Custom Memorials. Orange cones or blockades have been placed as a warning. According to Starke Operations Manager Marc Oody, the areas of settlement are along the path of the citys sewer system and indicate there could be problems with the gravity sewer. Hotel owner Sam Patel approached the commission a few weeks ago saying the problem has actually been going on for years, posing safety hazards and causing accidents. He said he wanted to see improvement instead of a back and forth between the city of Starke and Florida Department of Transportation about who is responsible. Somebody needs to take the initiative to figure that out before someone else falls, Patel said. We took video of the gravity sewer along the east side of U.S. 301 at Andrews Street back in May of 2014 and pipe conditions generally looked good, Oody said. City engineers at Mittauer and Associates have recommended additional testing of the sewer mains from Best Western to Noegels. Oody said that information would be reviewed later this month.

First Baptist Church of Lawtey held an Independence Day celebration for the community, offering free food, childrens activities, drawings for prizes and a fireworks show to cap it all off. Pastor Tim Mulkey said the church was reviving something it used to do with the celebration and plans to make the celebration an annual event. The church used to put on a celebration for families on the Fourth, but the event stopped for several years, Mulkey said. We are reviving it and plan to put it on the churchs regular schedule, along with our fall and New Years festivals. Hardee Timber provided assistance with the fireworks. The following provided one or more prizes for the drawings: Dicks Wings, Toms BBQ, Kaydens Caf, Powells, Grannies Restaurant, the Downtown Grill, Cedar River Seafood, Sonnys BBQ, Hitchcocks, Harveys Supermarket, the Florida Twin Theatre, Starke Golf and Country Club and Royalty Detailing. We want to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped us put on this event and everyone who attended it, Mulkey said. We have a wonderful, giving community here and events like this help to bring everyone together. A number of prize drawings were held throughout the event, with entries supervised by Brenda Hall and Carolyn Roberts, with supervision by Alex Mulkey (far right). Heather Hardee, David Norman and Janet Norman handed out the sweets. The assortment of baked good was mostly homemade by church members, and like all the food at the event, everything was free.

BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph Five Bradford High School students pitched family business ideas to a panel of local judges last week, showcasing lessons learned from a 12-week program that incorporated career and community exploration with entrepreneurial training for youth and adults. The program was jointly sponsored by the Bradford County School District, CareerSource of North Central Florida, Santa Fe College Foundation and Communities in Schools of Bradford County. Students were given the opportunity to visit a number of regional businesses, ranging from a blueberry farm to a drone factory. First-place winner Chris Crawford developed a business plan for Pheonyx Gaming, a local gaming center and shop. Crawford, who will be a sophomore at BHS next year, received a $4,000 scholarship provided by Santa Fe College and a $300 gift card. He hopes to complete college and serve in the U.S. Air Force before going into business full time. Second-place winner Sarah Frederick turned her love of long-distance running into an idea for EquipMyrun, a store that would cater exclusively to runners. She received a $200 gift card. Frederick will be a senior at BHS next year. Mekayla Beard, who will also be a senior at BHS next year, developed her idea for Dominiques Sweets, a cupcake and specialty dessert business. Appropriately for a Bradford County resident, she said her favorite product was her strawberry-filled cupcake. She received a $100 gift card. Morneca Campbell shared her idea for My Babys Corner, a monogramming business. Peyton Brown, like Crawford, was interested in opening a gaming center, which he named Exo Gaming. All presenters and their families were treated to dinner at Western Steer Steakhouse following the presentations. Judges for the event were Lisa Prevatt and Chad Farnsworth of the Bradford County School District, Patricia Evans of Capital City Bank, Bradford County Tax Collector Theresa Phillips, Mike Goldwire, Elissa Biggs and Mary Bridgman. Prevatt said, for the length of the program, the amount of work and detail that went into the projects was awesome. According to the school districts community relations coordinator, Brian Graham, 14 students were invited to participate in the program. This is the first program of its kind anywhere in the country! said Graham. We are excited to be able to offer this unique opportunity to Bradford County students. The Family Business Mentoring Program was certainly rewarding for me, and our hope is that this project allows students to see the diverse entrepreneurial opportunities that exist in our region. Family involvement is what makes the entrepreneurship program unique. Parents went through the program along with the students and even experienced Bradford County Incubator, a daylong boot camp in creating and growing businesses. Farnsworth said the program reaches both students and parents in need of opportunity. Program field trips included Staughn Farms in Waldo, one of the largest blueberry farms in the southeast; Prioria Robotics in Gainesville, manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles; Exactech Orthopedics in Gainesville, orthopedics manufacturer (joints); Meridian Behavioral Healthcare in Gainesville, which serves all of North Central Florida as a mental and behavioral health provider; Cognito Farm, located just north of Starke, an organic farm focused on beef, pork, poultry and eggs; Grooveshark of Gainesville, an online streaming music site where customers can listen to nearly any song by any artist at any time; Santa Fe College, including its Teaching Zoo; Florida Innovation Hub at UF, a facility that houses startup businesses and provides resources and networking abilities; Whitley Steel, located in the Maxville area of Clay County, a steel fabricator; Mayport Naval Station, located near Atlantic Beach; and JAXPORT, located in various areas along the St. Johns River in Jacksonville. Major funding for the program came from CareerSource of North Central Florida with collaboration from the Bradford County School District, Communities in Schools of Bradford County and Santa Fe College. The program was administered by the Bradford County School District (Graham) and Communities in Schools (Kim Alldredge). The district hopes to continue and expand the program during the school year, with the number of participants being determined by the funding level and the selection of participants being based on family income. Alldredge said everyone, especially CareerSource, was so excited about this first-time program and the possibilities for the future. Family Business Mentoring group members pose at the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, one of their destinations as part of the program. Pictured are Mekayla Beard, Brown and Morneca Campbell. Program graduates enjoyed a dinner at Westen Steer following the presentations.

Held at the Pleasant Grove Recreation Park, located on C.R. 229, the ceremony was presented by the Pleasant Grove Action Group. Committee President Lillie Dell Strachan organized the event and gave a short presentation of Reflections on the history of the community (from which much of the historical content of this article is taken). Rev. Isaiah Jenkins, pastor of St. Matthews Free Methodist Church, located on S.R. 16, acted as master of ceremonies and offered the invocation and the blessing of the food. Jenny DeSue sang a solo and all of the still extant historical families were represented at the front of the pavilion. As part of honoring the founding families, blue dedication signs were place on top of existing street signs, designating each street so marked as honoring one of the nine. The dedicated streets are: The Cummings family Northwest 53rd Avenue The Dell family Northwest 59th Loop The DeSue family Northwest 177th Street The Kelly family Northwest 62nd Avenue The Hankerson family Northwest 55th Avenue The Matthews family Northwest 52nd Avenue The Tyson family Northwest 59th Avenue The Hagan family Northwest 52nd Avenue The Goodwine family Northwest 176th Way Pleasant Grove was founded by eight agricultural families in the late 1800s: the Cummings, the Dells, the DeSues, the Goodwines, the Hankersons, the Kellys, the Matthews and the Tysons. In 1912, the Pleasant Grove Methodist Church was established. This first church was replaced in 1949 with a larger structure. In 1968 the churchs name was changed to Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church. Twenty-one former pastors were mentioned in the ceremony, along with the current pastor, the Rev. Carl E. Tyson. A school was also built in the community in 1912, Water Oak School, which was still standing until last year. The location is still commemorated with a sign, visible from Northwest 177th Street. The one-room school soon grew to four rooms, but, in 1957 was closed with students being transferred to the Robert Jenkins Ellerson School, better known as RJE. The school also served the community as a social gathering place and emergency housing when needed. Thirteen former teachers at Water Oak School were also mentioned in the ceremony in thanks for helping to lay the foundation for the community. The community worked to be as self-sufficient as possible in its early years. It had its own blacksmith for many years, William Bill Tyson. Doctors were in short supply and the trip was sometimes lengthy for one to come, so most of the children were born with the assistance of midwives. Three were mentioned, all from founding families: Elizabeth DeSue, Minnie Hollis Tyson and Lennie DeSue. The communitys cemetery, known as the Bob Love Cemetery, is located on land donated by Frazier and Ethel Kelly. Even the land on which the recreation park is located was donated to the community by members of the community; the A.L. Campbell Lodge in August 2005. Strachen stressed the cohesiveness that had made the community successful in the past and said that the ceremony was conceived to both honor the past and inform the future. We need our young people to see the value of working together as a community, Stachen said. We want to honor our elders and look toward the future at the same time. The elders of the community were honored at the dedication ceremony, with representatives of each family, which still has living descendants present. One family, the Matthews, appears to have disappeared from the area and it is not known if anyone descended from the original family is still living. Pictured are: (l-r) Thomas DeSue, Judy Sumpter Hankerson, Marzie Jenkins DeSue, Doris Dell Hampton, Jurutha Kelly DeSue, Clara Mae DeSue Covington (kneeling), the Rev. Isaiah Jenkins and Lillie Dell Strachen. Not pictured: Mildred Tyson Hankerson. Built in 1912, Water Oak Elementary grew from one room to four and served the Pleasant Grove Community until 1957. It was already in bad repair, but high winds to the point it had to be removed. Its former location is commemorated by a sign.

Thursday, July 10, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Master Gardener Laurie Compton at lcompton@ufl.edu. It is so hot outside! What could possibly be done in the garden? Well, there are lots of things to do preferably in the cool morning or evening hours. Here are some things you can plant: Ornamental pepper, coleus, crossandra and tropical milkweed are bedding plants that can be planted in July and should last until November. As the heat continues, keep annuals evenly moist. You can also plant bulbs of gladiolus, society garlic and butterfly lily. Vegetables that can be planted in July are okra, Southern peas, eggplant, pepper and watermelon. Be sure to provide water as needed and watch for aphids and caterpillars on leaves and fruit. July is a good time to plant palms while the rainy season is in full swing. Support your newly planted palms with braces for 6-8 months after planting. You should never drive nails into a palm trunk. Important gardening activities for July Lawn pests can be a big problem this time of year, but before you use a pesticide, make sure it is an insect causing the damage and not disease or sprinkler malfunction. July is a good time to solarize your garden. You can use the heat as a tool for preparing your fall garden. Solarize your soil by covering with clear plastic in July and August for 4 to 6 weeks to kill weeds, nematodes and diseases. If you still need to prune your azaleas, it should be done by mid-July. Pruning azaleas after then can cut off developing buds of next springs bloom. Hurricane season is here. Check the trees in your landscape for weakened or damaged branches and prune if needed. Caterpillars may be present on trees and shrubs. Large trees can usually withstand normal caterpillar feeding, but shrubs may need treatment if damage is extensive. Newly planted peach and nectarine trees should be fertilized now. Apply a half pound per tree of 8-8-8 fertilizer. Source: http://bit. ly/1eF8GUE. July wildlife calendar Shorebird migration starts in mid-July, peaking in August. Swallow-tailed kites begin gathering for migrating south for the winter. Look out for nesting shorebirds, and keep your vehicles and dogs from disturbing them. Later this month, young alligators and crocodiles will begin to hatch. Mosquitoes and chiggers are abundant, so watch out while youre camping. Baby raccoons, foxes, armadillos, possums and bobcats leave dens and begin following parents. Sea oats flower along the Atlantic. Scrub morning glory and butterfly weed begin to bloom. Did you know? Chiggers, or red bugs, can cause intense itching and small reddish welts on the skin. An infestation like that is called chigger dermatitis or trombiculosis. The intense irritation and subsequent scratching may result in secondary infection. In other parts of the world, chiggers transmit scrub typhus; however, in Florida they are not known to transmit any human disease agent. Source: http://bit.ly/1snWkFl.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Its loud, it shakes the room and its ticking people off. Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson said people are constantly complaining to him and his officers about music from passing vehicles. The citys hands may be tied, however. Johnson told the city commission that the Florida Supreme Court struck down a state law allowing officers to pull over a driver if a cars sound system could be heard from more than 25 feet away. The justices found that the law violated free speech rights for several reasons, including its exemption for vehicles used for business or politics, and freedom of expression. Johnson said he wrote a letter to legislators and the attorney general asking that the nuisance posed by loud vehicles be addressed. The police chief said its not just a nuisance, but also potentially a source of conflict that will lead to trouble, pointing to a case in Duval County. Its loud, but also sometimes explicit and offensive, he said. Johnson said there was a lot of confusion about the law, which remains on the books. He said some jurisdictions are dealing with it by writing local ordinances. His office has addressed the problem as disorderly conduct or breach of peace, which involves a lot of effort and paperwork just to get someone to turn their music down, he said. Starkes code has a section prohibiting excessive noise from a number of sources including radios or construction between certain hours, and even loud animals. Its restrictions on vehicles include horns, loud engines and excessive noise from loading and unloading. The one thing it doesnt appear to specifically address is car stereos or PA speakers. Johnson said in his opinion, a cars sound system was intended for the occupants of the vehicle and any additions to that meant to project the sound from the vehicle should be illegal. Thats what hes telling legislators in hope of some action on their part. In the meantime, he said he is acquiring ordinances from other cities to examine how they have tried to outlaw nuisance noise. The county commission recently amended its noise ordinance to simplify enforcement. Rather than requiring the use of equipment to measure the volume of a disturbance, the ordinance now uses a plainly audible standard. The countys ordinance does address music from vehicles and other sources, prohibiting it at nighttime if it can be heard at a distance of 100 feet or more from the source. Music from vehicles is outlawed from public streets at all times if it can be heard in the dwellings of neighboring inhabitants. Those who do not comply with a warning can be issued a citation with a fine of $53 for a first citation up to $500 for repeat citations. Starke correcting goof and modernize elections BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor With annexation in the rearview mirror, the Starke City Commission recently had to correct another past error that will impact future elections. In 2002, the city commission passed an ordinance ensuring that paper ballots would continue to be used in city elections and that those ballots would continue to be counted by hand. The ordinance was a reaction to state election standards being changed in the wake of the presidential election controversy of 2000. The city commission at the time didnt welcome change and moved to preserve the status quo. The problem is that it passed an ordinance to amend the city charter in order to do so. State law prohibits commissions from changing charters. The public must vote on charter amendments, and that didnt happen. The ordinance approved July 1 repealed the 2002 language insisting on hand tabulation of paper ballots, opening the door for the ballots cast in the citys Sept. 2 election to be counted electronically. The electronic voting equipment will be used is that of the county Supervisor of Elections Terry Vaughan, whom the city has procured to administer this years election. Traditionally, this has been part of the city clerks duties, which doesnt sit well during years when the clerk is also running for office. A separate special election may be held down the line for amendments that modernize the charter and permanently call for a supervisor to run the elections, adhering to current Florida elections law. The city would be able to use the county supervisor of elections or hire its own. The city is not planning on moving its elections to November to coincide with state and federal elections. At the urging of legislators, however, that is something Hampton voters will consider as one of several referendums on its ballot. Vaughan is also handling that election, which will take place on Sept. 9, putting a new council in charge of Hampton. The countys primary is set for Aug. 26. On Sept. 2, Starke voters from Districts 1, 3, and 5 will be electing a commissioner, but voters citywide will be able to vote on a referendum to give the city the authority to negotiated tax breaks with new and expanding businesses. Qualifying week for that election is July 14-18. Packets are available in Vaughans office in the north wing of the courthouse. On the upside, billing rates and connection fees would mirror those for customers inside the city limits. Currently customers outside the city limits pay higher rates. The Live Oak agreement was limited to one development and doesnt anticipate some of the questions that were raised during recent citys meetings. For one, Mayor Carolyn Spooner said outside customers would essentially be paying city taxes but not receiving all of the services they were paying for. (Examples of what those services are were hard to enumerate. Police and fire were mentioned, but those services are a given for those in proximity to Starke whether inside or outside the city.) Other complications include how to extend the requirements of the agreement to subsequent property owners. One scenario attorney Paul Sanders painted was a housing developer who signed the agreement to get the water and sewer extensions for 20 houses being built. Would the buyers also agree to pay taxes outside of the city limits in exchange for their water and sewer hookup? Would they put in their own well and septic tanks after the city has constructed lines to the development? Or, would they just go shopping for houses somewhere else? Spooner wanted to know if the city attorney had researched the legality of the Live Oak agreement. Sanders called it new ground, meaning it hasnt been tested in court. The mayor wanted more legal advice. The policy came close to a vote July 1, but was not adopted because of lingering questions and the fact that the actual contract forms for future customers had not been drafted. The ongoing discussion has caused multiple delays in the completion of a development deal with Summers Furniture for the construction of a new Badcock south of the city. While the Badcock property is no longer annexed, the development still needs water and a sewer line extension, but what the commissions policy of outside utility customers would impact Badcock. Until that policy is determined the commission feels it cannot finalize that development agreement. The attorney raised one more issue with regard to the development agreement. Until now, nothing in the agreement has addressed the environmental health of the Badcock site downtown, which the city would be receiving in exchange for funding the sewer main extension. That site was formerly a gas station and may require removal of contaminants before future development is allowed. On the other hand, it may not as the citys only plans for the site appear to be increasing downtown parking. In any case, the city is going to look into an environmental evaluation of the property. New businesses announced Starke Operations Manager Marc Oody told the city commission July 1 about two new businesses. Schraders Smoker Services is opening on Edwards Road, while residential property just north of the Beck dealership is being purchased for development. Oody said the same developer who built the Dollar General store on U.S. 301 at Market Road is planning on building a retail store there as well, pending the results of a feasibility study. The property by Beck is contiguous to the city but has not been voluntarily annexed. Oody is trying to work with the developer on this.

Their legal struggle eventually led to the Supreme Count decision that struck down laws prohibiting interracial marriages. On Saturday, Aug. 9, they will be showing Slavery by Another Name, which brings to life the system of forced, unpaid labor, mostly affecting Southern black men, that lasted until World War II. Individuals who were arrested for various violations of the law were rented out to perform work. This was used as a way to continue to supply cheap labor after slaves were freed. On Saturday, Aug. 16, they will showing parts one and two of The Abolitionists, which vividly bring to life the struggles of the men and women who led the battle to end slavery.

The current showings will include the full-length films, which run between one and a quarter and two hours. The end of slavery in the United States was an important turning point in American history, but the issues of race and equality under the law continue to be the subject of vigorous and sometimes divisive debates. Friends of the Library and the Florida Coalition for Peace and Justice invite people attending the film showings to consider how they all may work together to realize the goal of a more perfect union. In addition to presenting these films and discussions, the Friends of the Library is looking for churches or other organizations that would be willing to host a film showing. The grant received provides the film(s), suggested discussion guides and funding for some of the costs of the hosts. The length of the showing and discussion can be set by the host group.

After a life spent big-game hunting all over the world and running his own alligator farm, among other endeavors, Morgan even found time for a successful career as an architect. During his career, Morgan designed all of the schools still in use in Bradford County with the exception of Starke Elementary. His first school project was Lawtey Community School in 1963. Morgan has designed more then 40 schools in seven Florida counties as well as courthouses, jails and even a few churches in a total of eight counties. He stopped architecture as a full-time profession in 2000, although he describes himself as semi-retired. We work to support ourselves and to have the money to do what we really want to do, Morgan said. Morgan has hunted all over the world, mainly on a quest to join a small number of international hunters, members of the International Sheep Hunters Association, who can claim to have bagged all of the species and sub-species of wild sheep available for hunting worldwide. At the time, he needed to get members of 16 different species to qualify. He did it, becoming only the 128 th person in the world to do so. To reach his goal, Morgan traveled the globe, visiting Russia, China, Mongolia, Canada, Australia and Europe in search of specific species. While in country, he hunted other animals as they were available, and, on his trip to Africa, he hunted leopard and plains game exclusively as there were no sheep in the part of the continent he visited. Recently, several countries have opened up to allow hunting that were not options when Morgan was pursuing his goal. It now takes 21 species and subspecies to take the prize, but Morgan said he is satisfied with what he has accomplished. Im happy with my achievement and have moved on to something different, Morgan said. Besides, the mountains are harder to climb now than they used to be. Morgan donated all of his mounted trophies, most of which were full-body mounts, to the University of Florida Natural History Museum. The collection was valued at $700,000. Along the way, Morgan served as state chapter president of Safari Club International for the Orlando club, then later as president of the National Safari Club International in 1984-85. He is also a past state chapter president of the Wild Turkey Federation. About two years ago, Morgan became fascinated with the Keystones Morgan: a life of the unique and unusual The Bradford High School Football Boosters invite Tornado supporters to meet new head coach Corey Green, his family and staff at the Downtown Grill in Starke on Friday, July 11, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Green, who was previously the assistant head coach at Fleming Island High School, has 12 years of experience at Florida and Georgia schools. He is the son of longtime coach Danny Green. Green replaces Steve Reynolds, who resigned after two years and is now an assistant at Oakleaf High School. The Tornadoes play Buchholz in a preseason classic at Gainesvilles Citizens Field on Friday, Aug. 22, at 7:30 p.m. before opening the regular season with a home game against Suwannee on Friday, Aug. 29, at 7:30 p.m. BHS fans can meet new coach on July 11 native African cattle known collectively as Watusi. (See sidebar.) He was drawn to the interesting history, rarity and, most of all, their impressive and unique appearance. He began to research the cattle on the Internet and soon discovered the World Watusi Association and, through it, a good friend and mentor in Joy Ryder of Black Walnut Springs, Missouri. It wasnt long until Morgan decided he just had to have some of the cattle. Ryder helped Morgan buy five animals early in 2013 and six more later in the year. Most of these animals were under 5 years of age, but one, D.H. Lightning was an 11-year-old cow that Morgan said he just had to have because her horn spread was so wide. Among the others was Popeye, a 3.5-year-old tame bull. The cattle are now producing offspring and thriving on Morgans C.S.T. Ranch. He said that, in the future, he sees Watusi cattle as providing beef, but for now he is still at what he calls the cow and calf phase. Since Morgans Watusi cattle are all foundation pure animals cattle that are genetically pure and have never been interbred with other typesthey are in demand as breeder by other enthusiasts. The cattle are not cheap, ranging in price from $1,500 to $2,000 each. If the animal is tame, the price goes up at least another $1,000, as it does if the animal is outstanding in confirmation, color, genetics or bloodlines. An animal that excels in all areas can sell for $25,000 or more. People who have other types of cattleor even some who keep no livestock at allare attracted to the unique appearance of the Watusi and call Morgan to see about purchasing one for a pet or, as Morgan puts it, a field ornament. I get a goodly number of calls every week from people driving by and seeing the cattle in the field and the sign for the ranch, Morgan said. They usually want to buy just one, but cool quickly when I tell them the price. I havent gotten any call-backs. Working with his cattle has led Morgan in another interesting direction on his acreage; growing perennial peanuts. These plants do not produce peanuts, but instead are grown for hay. The plants take about a year and a half to become fully established, with the rizomes forming a ground-covering mat. Once the plants are established, then the hay can be cut every time it reaches 6 inches in height. The plant is self-perpetuating. It can be produced at a cost that is competitive with alfalfa ($25 for a 50-pound bale) and has just as high a protein content, if not See MORGAN, 6B A group of Don Don Morgan See page 6B

to remember him. The family chose the following quoteby H. Jackson Brown Jr.to be inscribed on a plaque that has been placed beside the tree: Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. Rosier, who came up with the idea of planting a tree in Hobbs honor, said she received help from Jordan, Taylor and a lot of other people in making it a reality. The Hobbs family expressed its gratitude in being a part of the process. In the statement provided to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor, the family said, When Karen Jordan began working on the tree dedication, we were very pleased to be included in the planning process and are thankful that she used the quote the family chose for Johnnys plaque. positive experience for those he saw. Judges mentioned that he was respectful of everyone and loved doing good for our community. They also spoke of Johnnys family, faith and kindness. These are all things that we recognized and loved about him, but were thankful to know that others also saw the good that he was doing. Rosier gave the welcoming remarks, discussing the shadetree story and how Bradford County Sheriffs Office Sgt. Diane Taylor and Karen Jordan, senior court operations consultant with the Eighth Judicial Circuit, were fond of referencing it. Rosier also mentioned that Courtroom 2 at the Bradford County Courthouse would always be Judge Hobbs courtroom. Circuit Judge James Colaw was one of several who spoke during the ceremony. He said the opportunity to speak at such a special ceremony was a privilege, but added it meant even more to do so in honor of a man he loved as a friend. I began my legal career with the State Attorneys Office in 1997 in Bradford County, and Judge Hobbs was the first judge I practiced in front of, Colaw said. He was my first picture of what a lawyer and what a judge should be. Colaw said it was Hobbs practice to offer attorneys the chance to sit with him following a trial and discuss the trial and offer critiques. I never missed those opportunities, Colaw said. We would talk about the trial for 10-15 minutes, and then the conversation would always evolve into hour-long discussions about life and family. He always talked about his family and his boys. It was evident how much he loved them and how proud of them he was. Hobbs served as an example of what a man and father should be, Colaw said. That is just how Hobbs family wished 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, July 10, 2014 BOUNCE HOUSE RENTALS Put a Bounce in Spring FloridaBounceRentals.com partytimebouncehouse@outlook.comServing Keystone Heights, Starke, Hampton, Earleton, Interlachen, Putnam Hall, Florahome COUPONS10% OFF 1st time booking 10% OFF for referrals 15% OFF for renting 2 or more units 5% OFF reservations made 4 weeks in advance352-745-1399 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Any time Judge Johnny Hobbs had to temporarily leave what was known as his courtroom Courtroom 2at the Bradford County Courthouse, his humorous reply would be to just let him have a big, shade tree to hold court under.

did not seem to have as hard a time as many people did. They had plenty to eat and no major money problems, despite the fact her father lost several thousand dollars in a bank failure. The only hardship she remembered from the time was the rationing of gasoline and sugar. She married King William (Bill) Parks on March 10, 1934. The couple lived in Cross City for a while, and then moved south to Palm Beach County.Bill was one of the first highway patrolmen in the state, working in 1936-37 in Homestead for the short-lived Florida Road Patrol, which only lasted one year. Parks said she can remember him getting ready for work, putting on boots and Jodhpur pants to ride his motorcycle. She remembered the funny stories he would tell her about the things he ran into on the job. In Homestead, the family rented a downstairs apartment. Parks remembered weathering a hurricane with her children at her landlords house next door it had proven able to withstand storms in the pastwhile Bill was out working on his motorcycle. She also remembered having an active social life, including attending dances in Miami. always like that, she wrote. We only had one building for out church. The men would sit on one side and the women and children on the other. They would pass around one of the mens hats to collect the offering, which wasnt much. Mama taught a class and was the church secretary. She further recalled, The pastor would come in on Saturday morning and pick out the best place to stay sometimes until Monday morning. It was always our house or Gladys (a first cousin) parents house; the home of the late Oscar Carter. I guess we had better food. The preacher lived in a little town not too far away, but we still didnt have church every Sunday. Parks remembered when her family was the only one around to have a car except for some local doctors. Her father bought a 1914 Ford touring car, and the girls kept it clean and polished. Parks particularly remembered the cars features. It had straight fenders, carbide lights and a crank you had to turn by hand. The radiator was trimmed in brass and looked like gold. If the top was down, and a rain came up quick, you would get soaked putting the curtains up because it took time.

This was true for local resident Louie Bell Parks when she celebrated her landmark birthday at Windsor Manor on Jan. 31. Although Parks is unable to communicate due to damage from a stroke about three years ago, her family, life and achievements live on in a journal she began in 2001 and in the memories of her son William Bill Parks. Parks is the daughter of wellknown early Lawtey farmer Uncle Marion D. Carter and his wife, Christina Dohm. Carter was born near Black Creek, about 5 miles north of Lawtey, on Oct. 4, 1873one of 11 children born to George Washington and Jane Austin Carter. Marion Carters wife, Dohm, was one of three daughters of German immigrants. In an old Telegraph interview, Carter said of his wife, She made me the smartest wife in the world. She was a concert violinist who died of Parkinsons disease in the 1920s. The couple married in 1900. Carter was well known in the area both as a farmer and, especially in his later years, as a teller of humorous tales. (See sidebar.) According to her memoirs, Louie Bell was born on Jan. 31, 1906, near Lawtey in a fourroom log cabin with porches all around. The doctor who attended at her birth was Dr. Brown, the familys physician for many years and, apparently a family friend as Louie Bell was named after his daughter. Her sister Melba followed in 1902. Parks fondest childhood memories center around her parents and paternal grandparents. I had such good parents and grandparent on Papas side, she wrote in her journal. They had so many grandchildren and they had a big place where we would go and play. Grandma would always have lots of cookies for us kids. They had lots of fruit treesoranges, figs, grapes, persimmonsand always a big vegetable garden besides the farm and horses. Those were the good ole days, so different from now. Parks memories of a simpler time include passing her childhood hours cutting out paper dolls and making paper The New River Community Health Center Board of Directors will meet July 16. 2014 at the Union County Library, located at 250 SE 5th Ave, Lake Butler, FL 32054 from 12:30 1:30 pm. 7/10 1tchg-B-sect Legals Dear Editor: On April 11, 2014 our whole lives changed as our son was taken from us in a traffic homicide. Until this day, no charges have been brought on this man, a Clay County bus driver who has never once said he was sorry but could hit and kill my son and return to work on that following Monday morning like he did nothing wrong. Shame on you Clay County for letting him climb back on a school bus after this. Clay County Sheriffs office say he just said C.R. 214 was dark that morning well thats why we have headlights, and why is it that I can sit on Ranchette Road on those school mornings and see the young lady that he saved walk from her front door all the way to the bus stop? My son walked from our house to that bus stop so she would not have to be there alone. Shame on Clay County Transportation for changing her bus stop for a week and then wanting her to go back to the other and having to walk by there everyday and having to have all those horrible memories come back. It is hard for me to drive by there, I cry every time I go by. There needs to be justice for Shane and this man needs to be charged and reminded everyday of what he has done. We did not get to see him walk across that stage, his name was called followed by in memory, never see him become a chef, open his own restaurant, or get married and become a father. I am tired of the run around and the idea that he thinks he can just kill a child and act like he did nothing wrong. He was the rock for all his peers he helped so many and now they wonder what are they going to do. His was son, brother, grandson, cousin, uncle and friend who has truly earned his wings and be called a HERO he deserves JUSTICE. I just want to know what is taking so long.

She remembers walking 3 miles each way to school, starting at age 6, despite rain, cold, frost and icicles; it didnt matter. We never seemed to get sick or have to stay home. She recalled that when she and her sister got a little older, they came home to face chores. When we got home we had to change our school clothes and put on our everyday clothes to do some work on the farm. She said they did things like picking strawberries and picking up corn stalks. As the girls got older, they were able to participate in more social activities, such as cane grindings, playing games and even having boyfriends. The family attended what was then known as Clay Hill Baptist Church. (The name was later changed to Long Branch Church.) The pastors were not formally paid, but subsisted on the collections taken up when the hat was passed at services and on the largess of the community. For several years, the pastor was L.W.

changed, and World War II left much of Europe in shambles, interest in the animals as exhibits decreased, and some were sold to private individuals as several private herds were started. The first cattle to come to the United States arrived in the 1960s. In 1983, a group of people many of whom were already working with the cattlegot together in Denver to form the Ankole Watusi International Registry to keep track of breeding information and conserve the breed. Interest in this breed continues to grow, not only as purebred animals, but also as a useful contributor to hybrids. While Watusi are not good for dairy cattlemost give only 2 pints of milk a day to the detriment of their calftheir milk is rich in butterfat (about 10 percent), and some farmers are crossing Watusi with dairy breeds to increase their milks butterfat content. While not as large as some cattle used for beef production, meat from Watusi cattle is very low in fat and cholesterol, much more so than other breeds opening up possibilities for hybridizing as well. It seems the Watusi have found a home and are here to stay, both as their own unique selves and as contributors to hybrids with other breeds to improve products and increase hardiness. There is a reason they have survived so long in their inhospitable natural environment, and they will continue to do so in their new roles. The information provided here comes from local Watusi cattle rancher Don Morgan and the World Watusi Association website, watusicattle.com. BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Times and Monitor Imagine a breed of cattle that has been around for about 8,000 years and that were kept by the ancient Egyptians even before the building of the pyramids. Make them disease resistant, capable of thriving despite sparse nutrition and water and make them adaptable to a wide range of temperatures (120 degrees down to 20 degrees). While youre imagining, make these cattle capable of pretty much taking care of themselves, even defending themselves and their calves against lions and jackals. The best part of all this is that imagining is not necessary; these cattle exist and can be found in the breed known collectively as Watusi. The forefathers of this breed were known as the Egyptian or Hamitic Longhorns. Around 2000 B.C. they were interbred with humped cattle, called Longhorn Zebus (the ancestors of todays Brahma cattle) from the Indian sub-continent. These animals spread around eastern Africa and became known by many regional names (with some regional differences in the cattle themselves as well). In Uganda they are known as the Sanga variety called Ankole. In Rwanda and Burundi the cattle are known as Watusi and are considered sacred by many indigenous people. These animals are rarely killed, but kept for milk production since an owners wealth is measured in cattle. The giant horns which give the breed its distinctive appearance are not only a indicator of value, but also the reason for the animals heat tolerancethe horns are honeycombed inside with an extensive blood supply so they act as radiators, helping the animals body repel heat. In 1929-30, the Schulz family exported 42 head of Watusi cattle, including 14 bulls and 28 cows, to Germany, with six more brought in by Hermann Ruche in 1939. These 48 animals are the basis for all of the Foundation Pure animals that exist in the world outside of Africa. All went to zoos and game parks in Germany, Sweden and England for display.

Morgan is experimenting with 10 acres, which will be used for his cattle. Florida brings in about $330 million worth of alfalfa hay from out west every year, Morgan said. Most of this hay goes to horses. This hay can be produced in-state and, if it catches on, can keep all or some of that money here. Morgan also grows his own corn for his cattle and also grows watermelons. Growing melons has led him to the art of beekeeping, which he got into to ensure his melons were pollinated. When not working with his animals or crops, Morgan said he enjoys nature photography still hunting, but taking trophies without a gun. He also spends a great deal of time with granddaughter Baylee Sheppard, who lives on the ranch with her family. Sheppard is in FFA and has a young Angus steer she will be showing next year. (The FFA will not allow show steers with horns, so that excludes her grandfathers Watusi.) Morgan is enjoying life and loves his unique cattle, even when Popeye flips him over the food trough just by turning his head. You have to watch out for the horns, Morgan said. Its like getting whacked with a baseball bat, but its OK. He doesnt mean any harm. MORGAN Continued from 1B

Bill worked in a jobs program through the Civilian Conservation Corps, building the Florida Cross-State Canal in 1939. The couple then farmed, first with Bills parents near Boynton Beach and then on their own land. They settled in on their land, but still made trips north to see family in Starke. The couple had two sons: Bud, born in Palm Beach County, and Bill, born in Starke. Bill remembered growing up on the farm and remembered how hard his mother worked on the farm. Parks divorced in 1957 and returned north to Bradford County in 1958. She lived alone in a small house on Cypress Street in Starke. She joined the Shands Starke auxiliary, of which she was a member for over 30 years. She also was a poll worker until she was 98, but it wasnt her age that made her resign. That was when there were all the questions about Bush and election accuracy, son Bill said. She said she was getting out of it because she was not going to get blamed for something. Parks continued to drive until she was 98 as well. She continued to live alone on Cypress Street, in a house with no air-conditioningshe took a window unit her son bought for her out of the window because she said it just didnt look right until she fell while doing yard work in 2010, when she was 103. She cracked her pelvis and had to be admitted to rehab, her son remembered. She fell again at age 106 and broke her leg just above the knee, requiring surgery. The doctor said he had never operated on someone as old as she was. Parks recovered well from the surgery, but then had a minor stroke, which still gives her problems communicating today. Im so glad she started writing about her life, her son said. If she hadnt written down those few pages, we would have lost those memories. She had an interesting life, and Im very glad I have had the chance to read her own words about it and share them with others. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, July 10, 2014 The following are excerpts from articles in the Bradford County Telegraph on Louie Bell Parks father, Uncle Marion D. Carter. BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Times and Monitor Uncle Marion D. Carter was a well-known and prosperous farmer in the Lawtey area during the late 1800s and early 1900s. He owned a 10-acre farm just up the road from Buddy Normans place, which was later owned by Bill Reddish. It came with a log cabin built by Ervin Norman. He worked the farm from 1900 until he retired in 1947. In his youth, Carter lived outside of Lawtey near Black Creek. He remembered attending school about 5 miles from his home. The teachera Mr. Dowling from Lake Butler would sometimes carry him across Black Creek. The school year lasted four or five months, and we had spelling, writing and reading, Carter said in an interview in the 1950s. I still remember the old blue-backed speller and the third-grade reader we used, and we all had a writing tablet. Some of the boys who went there at that time were Sam Norman, Francis Norman, Candace Norman, Lige Mosley, Son Mosley and Bosher Mosley. After settling on his own land, Carter set about making money. He said he grew cotton until the boll weevil made its appearance. He raised rice, strawberries, corn, peanuts, soldier beans and even eggplants, all of which sold because he said they did not know how to cook them. He also raised his own cattle, hogs and chickens, and kept the meat in his own smokehouse. Carter remembered clearly what market day in Starke was like in the early 1900s. On Saturday, wed take our cotton to market at Starke, using the old road east of the railroad tracks to get there, he said. Wed sell it at old Alvarezs cotton gin and then spend the day in Starke, visiting and buying supplies. Thered be a right smart number of people there. Seemed like the whole county come in to trade in those days. It was a lively place then. Carter remembered horses being traded, buying flour in 100-pound barrels and bacon selling for 5 cents a pound. Those were the good, old days, I declare, he reminisced. Lots better than now. Seems like everyone was happy then, but today it looks like everyone has a dread on his mind. Some of Carters other observations on life were: On food: Theyve kept improving this and improving that until, I declare, it isnt fit to eat. On having fun: Wed have frolics and dances all night. Sometimes it would be a log rolling, house raising or a fodder pulling, and it would generally be on a Friday night because we would go to town the next day anyway and didnt have to worry about staying up late. On snow: There was the one and only time I ever saw snow in my life. It was the big freeze of the late 90s (1890s). It came on a Sunday night; snowed during the night and blew in under the door and was all over the bed in the morning. There was snow on the porch that lasted for two days then. Man, but that freeze killed everything. It got all our fruit, including some fine pears that we used to ship to New York by the barrel and get good money for. It froze rutabagas in the ground so tight we couldnt pull them out. On living to be a ripe, old age: Work hard: Itll do you good; take a chew of tobacco, its good for your innards; eat salty meat and drink lots of water. On the future: Tell (the readers) Im looking for a widow woman. Anything under 65. Uncle Marion D.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Questions remain to be answered before the city of Starke adopts a new policy requiring future utility customers outside the city to agree to pay property taxes. The city is patterning the policy from a development agreement from Live Oak. More is required to tax outside utility customers than approving a policy. The city would have to enter into separate contracts with each and every new utility customer outside the city limits. In exchange for water and sewer, those customers would have to agree to pay an amount every year equivalent to what they would owe in property taxes if they lived inside the city. The agreements would also include a clause committing a property owner to voluntary annexation should the property become contiguous to the city limits, and if its a commercial property, the business owner would be required to purchase a city occupational license even though it conducts business outside the city.Gun play lands four behind bars BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The Union County Sheriffs Office received reports Monday night of four people riding around Lake Butler in a maroon Dodge Intrepid, firing shots while in the neighborhood southwest of Spires IGA and then traveling west on Providence Road (State Road 238). After stopping the vehicle there, deputies confirmed reports that four occupants drove through Lake Butler and fired numerous shots in the air and pointed the firearm at witnesses a man in his mid-30s and a teenage boy. No one was hurt during this incident. All of them are charged with numerous felonies. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Bret Gill and his canine helped the deputies find the firearm the suspects tossed from the right passenger side window before being stopped a Kel-tec 9 mm, which had an empty magazine and had recently been fired, according to UCSOs arrest report. The firearm has been reported stolen in Bradford County and UCSO said finding it could solve additional crimes there. Martavious Antron Albritton of Raiford was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, tampering or destroying evidence all three third-degree felonies and discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. He remains in the Union County Jail under a $91,000 bond. Taylor Lynn Crapps of Hogansville, Georgia, was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, tampering or destroying evidence all three third-degree felonies and discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. She was the driver of the car and remains in the Bradford County Jail under a $500,000 bond. Quandrell Xavier Steele of Lake Butler was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, resisting an officer with violence, and tampering or destroying evidence all four third-degree felonies and discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. He was also charged with indecent exposure, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct, all of which are misdemeanor crimes. He remains in the Union County Jail under a $104,000 bond. John Warren Strickland III of Starke was charged with aggravated assault, larceny/grand theft of firearm, resisting an officer with violence, and tampering or destroying evidence all four third-degree felonies and with discharging a firearm from a vehicle, a second-degree felony. He remains in the Union County Jail under a $100,000 bond. According to the report, Crapps claimed that she was told where to drive since she was not familiar with the area and that she heard the gun shots and then realized they were coming from her car, though she didnt see who shot the pistol. Strickland, while being retained in the patrol car, moved his cuffed hands from behind his back to his front, and was ready to kick out the back door in hopes of injuring Deputy Charles Townsend when he opened it. Strickland was re-cuffed and secured in the patrol car with a seat belt. During that time, officers heard glass being broken out of Deputy Robert Fipps patrol car by Steele, which Fipps went over to investigate. When other officers arrived to assist with Strickland and Steele, Steele began kicking and spitting on them. Pepper spray had to be used again to get Steele under control; the first time was to keep him from exiting the broken window. Afterward, Steele moved his cuffed hands around his waist and began urinating inside the patrol car and through the window, exposing himself to passing traffic. Crapps was transported by Townsend. The other three suspects were then transported to the jail by correctional officers and escorted by the Florida Highway Patrol. UCSO credited citizens for helping apprehend the suspects. And thank you to all the citizens that quickly reported this crime and cooperated with great witness statements and accurate reporting of the incident that occurred, the sheriffs office said on its Facebook page. Cooperation like this is what will put them away for a long time.INSIDE: Young Moguls Present Big Plans Tree Planted for Judge Hobbs Taylor Crapps Quandrell Steele Martavious Albritton John Strickland III Shots rang out near Southwest First Terrace and Southwest Eighth Street in Lake Butler. Starke investigating ground in front of hotel BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Calling it a sinkhole might be a little dramatic, but something is definitely going on underground near the Best Western hotel. The ground has begun to give way under the sidewalk between the hotels pool area and U.S. 301. Further evidence of sinking can be seen down the block at the corner of Andrews Street between Powells and Noegels, and, in the other direction, at Charles Custom Memorials. Orange cones or blockades have been placed as a warning. According to Starke Operations Manager Marc Oody, the areas of settlement are along the path of the citys sewer system and indicate there could be problems with the gravity sewer. Hotel owner Sam Patel approached the commission a few weeks ago saying the problem has actually been going on for years, posing safety hazards and causing accidents. He said he wanted to see improvement instead of a back and forth between the city of Starke and Florida Department of Transportation about who is responsible. Somebody needs to take the initiative to figure that out before someone else falls, Patel said. We took video of the gravity sewer along the east side of U.S. 301 at Andrews Street back in May of 2014 and pipe conditions generally looked good, Oody said. City engineers at Mittauer and Associates have recommended additional testing of the sewer mains from Best Western to Noegels. Oody said that information would be reviewed later this month.

First Baptist Church of Lawtey held an Independence Day celebration for the community, offering free food, childrens activities, drawings for prizes and a fireworks show to cap it all off. Pastor Tim Mulkey said the church was reviving something it used to do with the celebration and plans to make the celebration an annual event. The church used to put on a celebration for families on the Fourth, but the event stopped for several years, Mulkey said. We are reviving it and plan to put it on the churchs regular schedule, along with our fall and New Years festivals. Hardee Timber provided assistance with the fireworks. The following provided one or more prizes for the drawings: Dicks Wings, Toms BBQ, Kaydens Caf, Powells, Grannies Restaurant, the Downtown Grill, Cedar River Seafood, Sonnys BBQ, Hitchcocks, Harveys Supermarket, the Florida Twin Theatre, Starke Golf and Country Club and Royalty Detailing. We want to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped us put on this event and everyone who attended it, Mulkey said. We have a wonderful, giving community here and events like this help to bring everyone together. A number of prize drawings were held throughout the event, with entries supervised by Brenda Hall and Carolyn Roberts, with supervision by Alex Mulkey (far right). Heather Hardee, David Norman and Janet Norman handed out the sweets. The assortment of baked good was mostly homemade by church members, and like all the food at the event, everything was free.

BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph Five Bradford High School students pitched family business ideas to a panel of local judges last week, showcasing lessons learned from a 12-week program that incorporated career and community exploration with entrepreneurial training for youth and adults. The program was jointly sponsored by the Bradford County School District, CareerSource of North Central Florida, Santa Fe College Foundation and Communities in Schools of Bradford County. Students were given the opportunity to visit a number of regional businesses, ranging from a blueberry farm to a drone factory. First-place winner Chris Crawford developed a business plan for Pheonyx Gaming, a local gaming center and shop. Crawford, who will be a sophomore at BHS next year, received a $4,000 scholarship provided by Santa Fe College and a $300 gift card. He hopes to complete college and serve in the U.S. Air Force before going into business full time. Second-place winner Sarah Frederick turned her love of long-distance running into an idea for EquipMyrun, a store that would cater exclusively to runners. She received a $200 gift card. Frederick will be a senior at BHS next year. Mekayla Beard, who will also be a senior at BHS next year, developed her idea for Dominiques Sweets, a cupcake and specialty dessert business. Appropriately for a Bradford County resident, she said her favorite product was her strawberry-filled cupcake. She received a $100 gift card. Morneca Campbell shared her idea for My Babys Corner, a monogramming business. Peyton Brown, like Crawford, was interested in opening a gaming center, which he named Exo Gaming. All presenters and their families were treated to dinner at Western Steer Steakhouse following the presentations. Judges for the event were Lisa Prevatt and Chad Farnsworth of the Bradford County School District, Patricia Evans of Capital City Bank, Bradford County Tax Collector Theresa Phillips, Mike Goldwire, Elissa Biggs and Mary Bridgman. Prevatt said, for the length of the program, the amount of work and detail that went into the projects was awesome. According to the school districts community relations coordinator, Brian Graham, 14 students were invited to participate in the program. This is the first program of its kind anywhere in the country! said Graham. We are excited to be able to offer this unique opportunity to Bradford County students. The Family Business Mentoring Program was certainly rewarding for me, and our hope is that this project allows students to see the diverse entrepreneurial opportunities that exist in our region. Family involvement is what makes the entrepreneurship program unique. Parents went through the program along with the students and even experienced Bradford County Incubator, a daylong boot camp in creating and growing businesses. Farnsworth said the program reaches both students and parents in need of opportunity. Program field trips included Staughn Farms in Waldo, one of the largest blueberry farms in the southeast; Prioria Robotics in Gainesville, manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles; Exactech Orthopedics in Gainesville, orthopedics manufacturer (joints); Meridian Behavioral Healthcare in Gainesville, which serves all of North Central Florida as a mental and behavioral health provider; Cognito Farm, located just north of Starke, an organic farm focused on beef, pork, poultry and eggs; Grooveshark of Gainesville, an online streaming music site where customers can listen to nearly any song by any artist at any time; Santa Fe College, including its Teaching Zoo; Florida Innovation Hub at UF, a facility that houses startup businesses and provides resources and networking abilities; Whitley Steel, located in the Maxville area of Clay County, a steel fabricator; Mayport Naval Station, located near Atlantic Beach; and JAXPORT, located in various areas along the St. Johns River in Jacksonville. Major funding for the program came from CareerSource of North Central Florida with collaboration from the Bradford County School District, Communities in Schools of Bradford County and Santa Fe College. The program was administered by the Bradford County School District (Graham) and Communities in Schools (Kim Alldredge). The district hopes to continue and expand the program during the school year, with the number of participants being determined by the funding level and the selection of participants being based on family income. Alldredge said everyone, especially CareerSource, was so excited about this first-time program and the possibilities for the future. Family Business Mentoring group members pose at the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, one of their destinations as part of the program. Pictured are Mekayla Beard, Brown and Morneca Campbell.

Temple Ave. *Visit Us On Facebook* for a 3-liter bottle of Crown See ya at the River...Where the Whiskey Never Runs Dry!for our 4-8pm 9pm 2am FREE DRAFT$2 Domestic Bottles Come & Enjoy the Day with Us!Its because of all of you that we are here and would like to say Thanks to each and every one of you by making this day about YOU Pleasant Grove founders remembered BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph The community of Pleasant Grove celebrated its nine founding families June 28 with a gathering and ceremony dedicating streets in the community in the names of these founders. Held at the Pleasant Grove Recreation Park, located on C.R. 229, the ceremony was presented by the Pleasant Grove Action Group. Committee President Lillie Dell Strachan organized the event and gave a short presentation of Reflections on the history of the community (from which much of the historical content of this article is taken). Rev. Isaiah Jenkins, pastor of St. Matthews Free Methodist Church, located on S.R. 16, acted as master of ceremonies and offered the invocation and the blessing of the food. Jenny DeSue sang a solo and all of the still extant historical families were represented at the front of the pavilion. As part of honoring the founding families, blue dedication signs were place on top of existing street signs, designating each street so marked as honoring one of the nine. The dedicated streets are: The Cummings family Northwest 53rd Avenue The Dell family Northwest 59th Loop The DeSue family Northwest 177th Street The Kelly family Northwest 62nd Avenue The Hankerson family Northwest 55th Avenue The Matthews family Northwest 52nd Avenue The Tyson family Northwest 59th Avenue The Hagan family Northwest 52nd Avenue The Goodwine family Northwest 176th Way Pleasant Grove was founded by eight agricultural families in the late 1800s: the Cummings, the Dells, the DeSues, the Goodwines, the Hankersons, the Kellys, the Matthews and the Tysons. In 1912, the Pleasant Grove Methodist Church was established. This first church was replaced in 1949 with a larger structure. In 1968 the churchs name was changed to Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church. Twenty-one former pastors were mentioned in the ceremony, along with the current pastor, the Rev. Carl E. Tyson. A school was also built in the community in 1912, Water Oak School, which was still standing until last year. The location is still commemorated with a sign, visible from Northwest 177th Street. The one-room school soon grew to four rooms, but, in 1957 was closed with students being transferred to the Robert Jenkins Ellerson School, better known as RJE. The school also served the community as a social gathering place and emergency housing when needed. Thirteen former teachers at Water Oak School were also mentioned in the ceremony in thanks for helping to lay the foundation for the community. The community worked to be as self-sufficient as possible in its early years. It had its own blacksmith for many years, William Bill Tyson. Doctors were in short supply and the trip was sometimes lengthy for one to come, so most of the children were born with the assistance of midwives. Three were mentioned, all from founding families: Elizabeth DeSue, Minnie Hollis Tyson and Lennie DeSue. The communitys cemetery, known as the Bob Love Cemetery, is located on land donated by Frazier and Ethel Kelly. Even the land on which the recreation park is located was donated to the community by members of the community; the A.L. Campbell Lodge in August 2005. Strachen stressed the cohesiveness that had made the community successful in the past and said that the ceremony was conceived to both honor the past and inform the future. We need our young people to see the value of working together as a community, Stachen said. We want to honor our elders and look toward the future at the same time. The elders of the community were honored at the dedication ceremony, with representatives of each family, which still has living descendants present. One family, the Matthews, appears to have disappeared from the area and it is not known if anyone descended from the original family is still living. Pictured are: (l-r) Thomas DeSue, Judy Sumpter Hankerson, Marzie Jenkins DeSue, Doris Dell Hampton, Jurutha Kelly DeSue, Clara Mae DeSue Covington (kneeling), the Rev. Isaiah Jenkins and Lillie Dell Strachen. Not pictured: Mildred Tyson Hankerson. Built in 1912, Water Oak Elementary grew from one room to four and served the Pleasant Grove Community until 1957. It was already in bad repair, but high winds to the point it had to be removed. Its former location is commemorated by a sign.

Thursday, July 10, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Master Gardener Laurie Compton at lcompton@ufl.edu. It is so hot outside! What could possibly be done in the garden? Well, there are lots of things to do preferably in the cool morning or evening hours. Here are some things you can plant: Ornamental pepper, coleus, crossandra and tropical milkweed are bedding plants that can be planted in July and should last until November. As the heat continues, keep annuals evenly moist. You can also plant bulbs of gladiolus, society garlic and butterfly lily. Vegetables that can be planted in July are okra, Southern peas, eggplant, pepper and watermelon. Be sure to provide water as needed and watch for aphids and caterpillars on leaves and fruit. July is a good time to plant palms while the rainy season is in full swing. Support your newly planted palms with braces for 6-8 months after planting. You should never drive nails into a palm trunk.Important gardening activities for JulyLawn pests can be a big problem this time of year, but before you use a pesticide, make sure it is an insect causing the damage and not disease or sprinkler malfunction. July is a good time to solarize your garden. You can use the heat as a tool for preparing your fall garden. Solarize your soil by covering with clear plastic in July and August for 4 to 6 weeks to kill weeds, nematodes and diseases. If you still need to prune your azaleas, it should be done by mid-July. Pruning azaleas after then can cut off developing buds of next springs bloom. Hurricane season is here. Check the trees in your landscape for weakened or damaged branches and prune if needed. Caterpillars may be present on trees and shrubs. Large trees can usually withstand normal caterpillar feeding, but shrubs may need treatment if damage is extensive. Newly planted peach and nectarine trees should be fertilized now. Apply a half pound per tree of 8-8-8 fertilizer.

Look out for nesting shorebirds, and keep your vehicles and dogs from disturbing them. Later this month, young alligators and crocodiles will begin to hatch. Mosquitoes and chiggers are abundant, so watch out while youre camping. Baby raccoons, foxes, armadillos, possums and bobcats leave dens and begin following parents. Sea oats flower along the Atlantic. Scrub morning glory and butterfly weed begin to bloom.Did you know? Chiggers, or red bugs, can cause intense itching and small reddish welts on the skin. An infestation like that is called chigger dermatitis or trombiculosis. The intense irritation and subsequent scratching may result in secondary infection. In other parts of the world, chiggers transmit scrub typhus; however, in Florida they are not known to transmit any human disease agent. Source: http://bit.ly/1snWkFl.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Its loud, it shakes the room and its ticking people off. Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson said people are constantly complaining to him and his officers about music from passing vehicles. The citys hands may be tied, however. Johnson told the city commission that the Florida Supreme Court struck down a state law allowing officers to pull over a driver if a cars sound system could be heard from more than 25 feet away. The justices found that the law violated free speech rights for several reasons, including its exemption for vehicles used for business or politics, and freedom of expression. Johnson said he wrote a letter to legislators and the attorney general asking that the nuisance posed by loud vehicles be addressed. The police chief said its not just a nuisance, but also potentially a source of conflict that will lead to trouble, pointing to a case in Duval County. Its loud, but also sometimes explicit and offensive, he said. Johnson said there was a lot of confusion about the law, which remains on the books. He said some jurisdictions are dealing with it by writing local ordinances. His office has addressed the problem as disorderly conduct or breach of peace, which involves a lot of effort and paperwork just to get someone to turn their music down, he said. Starkes code has a section prohibiting excessive noise from a number of sources including radios or construction between certain hours, and even loud animals. Its restrictions on vehicles include horns, loud engines and excessive noise from loading and unloading. The one thing it doesnt appear to specifically address is car stereos or PA speakers. Johnson said in his opinion, a cars sound system was intended for the occupants of the vehicle and any additions to that meant to project the sound from the vehicle should be illegal. Thats what hes telling legislators in hope of some action on their part. In the meantime, he said he is acquiring ordinances from other cities to examine how they have tried to outlaw nuisance noise. The county commission recently amended its noise ordinance to simplify enforcement. Rather than requiring the use of equipment to measure the volume of a disturbance, the ordinance now uses a plainly audible standard. The countys ordinance does address music from vehicles and other sources, prohibiting it at nighttime if it can be heard at a distance of 100 feet or more from the source. Music from vehicles is outlawed from public streets at all times if it can be heard in the dwellings of neighboring inhabitants. Those who do not comply with a warning can be issued a citation with a fine of $53 for a first citation up to $500 for repeat citations.Starke correcting goof and modernize elections BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor With annexation in the rearview mirror, the Starke City Commission recently had to correct another past error that will impact future elections. In 2002, the city commission passed an ordinance ensuring that paper ballots would continue to be used in city elections and that those ballots would continue to be counted by hand. The ordinance was a reaction to state election standards being changed in the wake of the presidential election controversy of 2000. The city commission at the time didnt welcome change and moved to preserve the status quo. The problem is that it passed an ordinance to amend the city charter in order to do so. State law prohibits commissions from changing charters. The public must vote on charter amendments, and that didnt happen. The ordinance approved July 1 repealed the 2002 language insisting on hand tabulation of paper ballots, opening the door for the ballots cast in the citys Sept. 2 election to be counted electronically. The electronic voting equipment will be used is that of the county Supervisor of Elections Terry Vaughan, whom the city has procured to administer this years election. Traditionally, this has been part of the city clerks duties, which doesnt sit well during years when the clerk is also running for office. A separate special election may be held down the line for amendments that modernize the charter and permanently call for a supervisor to run the elections, adhering to current Florida elections law. The city would be able to use the county supervisor of elections or hire its own. The city is not planning on moving its elections to November to coincide with state and federal elections. At the urging of legislators, however, that is something Hampton voters will consider as one of several referendums on its ballot. Vaughan is also handling that election, which will take place on Sept. 9, putting a new council in charge of Hampton. The countys primary is set for Aug. 26. On Sept. 2, Starke voters from Districts 1, 3, and 5 will be electing a commissioner, but voters citywide will be able to vote on a referendum to give the city the authority to negotiated tax breaks with new and expanding businesses. Qualifying week for that election is July 14-18. Packets are available in Vaughans office in the north wing of the courthouse. On the upside, billing rates and connection fees would mirror those for customers inside the city limits. Currently customers outside the city limits pay higher rates. The Live Oak agreement was limited to one development and doesnt anticipate some of the questions that were raised during recent citys meetings. For one, Mayor Carolyn Spooner said outside customers would essentially be paying city taxes but not receiving all of the services they were paying for. (Examples of what those services are were hard to enumerate. Police and fire were mentioned, but those services are a given for those in proximity to Starke whether inside or outside the city.) Other complications include how to extend the requirements of the agreement to subsequent property owners. One scenario attorney Paul Sanders painted was a housing developer who signed the agreement to get the water and sewer extensions for 20 houses being built. Would the buyers also agree to pay taxes outside of the city limits in exchange for their water and sewer hookup? Would they put in their own well and septic tanks after the city has constructed lines to the development? Or, would they just go shopping for houses somewhere else? Spooner wanted to know if the city attorney had researched the legality of the Live Oak agreement. Sanders called it new ground, meaning it hasnt been tested in court. The mayor wanted more legal advice. The policy came close to a vote July 1, but was not adopted because of lingering questions and the fact that the actual contract forms for future customers had not been drafted. The ongoing discussion has caused multiple delays in the completion of a development deal with Summers Furniture for the construction of a new Badcock south of the city. While the Badcock property is no longer annexed, the development still needs water and a sewer line extension, but what the commissions policy of outside utility customers would impact Badcock. Until that policy is determined the commission feels it cannot finalize that development agreement. The attorney raised one more issue with regard to the development agreement. Until now, nothing in the agreement has addressed the environmental health of the Badcock site downtown, which the city would be receiving in exchange for funding the sewer main extension. That site was formerly a gas station and may require removal of contaminants before future development is allowed. On the other hand, it may not as the citys only plans for the site appear to be increasing downtown parking. In any case, the city is going to look into an environmental evaluation of the property.New businesses announcedStarke Operations Manager Marc Oody told the city commission July 1 about two new businesses. Schraders Smoker Services is opening on Edwards Road, while residential property just north of the Beck dealership is being purchased for development. Oody said the same developer who built the Dollar General store on U.S. 301 at Market Road is planning on building a retail store there as well, pending the results of a feasibility study. The property by Beck is contiguous to the city but has not been voluntarily annexed. Oody is trying to work with the developer on this.TAXContinued from 1A www.facebook.com/BradfordTelegraph www.StarkeJournal.com

The showings will be at the Sustainable Living Center located at the corner of C.R. 227 and C.R. 18 west of Lake Hampton. Each showing will last from 2 p.m. to approximately 4 pm with pizza and discussion to follow. On Saturday, July 26, they will be showing The Freedom Riders,abouta diverse group of volunteers who worked in 1961 to challenge segregation in the Deep South. The Freedom Rides of 1961 were a pivotal moment in the civil rights struggle. On Saturday, Aug. 2, they will be showing The Loving Story, about Mildred and Richard Loving who were arrested in 1958 because they were a married interracial couple. Their legal struggle eventually led to the Supreme Count decision that struck down laws prohibiting interracial marriages. On Saturday, Aug. 9, they will be showing Slavery by Another Name, which brings to life the system of forced, unpaid labor, mostly affecting Southern black men, that lasted until World War II. Individuals who were arrested for various violations of the law were rented out to perform work. This was used as a way to continue to supply cheap labor after slaves were freed. On Saturday, Aug. 16, they will showing parts one and two of The Abolitionists, which vividly bring to life the struggles of the men and women who led the battle to end slavery. On Saturday, Aug. 23, they will showing the third part of The Abolitionists, which covers the movement through the Civil War. The Friends of the Library hosted showings of these videos at the Bradford County Library in January and February. The current showings will include the full-length films, which run between one and a quarter and two hours. The end of slavery in the United States was an important turning point in American history, but the issues of race and equality under the law continue to be the subject of vigorous and sometimes divisive debates. Friends of the Library and the Florida Coalition for Peace and Justice invite people attending the film showings to consider how they all may work together to realize the goal of a more perfect union. In addition to presenting these films and discussions, the Friends of the Library is looking for churches or other organizations that would be willing to host a film showing. The grant received provides the film(s), suggested discussion guides and funding for some of the costs of the hosts. The length of the showing and discussion can be set by the host group. The Created Equal film series is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. The Friends of the Library received a grant from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to show the films. Contact Paul Still at 904-3680291 or stillpe@aol.com for more information or to schedule a showing of one or all of the films in the series.R NRA supports raise $ for sportsThe Starke Area Friends of the NRA held its annual banquet and auction on 27.

After a life spent big-game hunting all over the world and running his own alligator farm, among other endeavors, Morgan even found time for a successful career as an architect. During his career, Morgan designed all of the schools still in use in Bradford County with the exception of Starke Elementary. His first school project was Lawtey Community School in 1963. Morgan has designed more then 40 schools in seven Florida counties as well as courthouses, jails and even a few churches in a total of eight counties. He stopped architecture as a full-time profession in 2000, although he describes himself as semi-retired. We work to support ourselves and to have the money to do what we really want to do, Morgan said. Morgan has hunted all over the world, mainly on a quest to join a small number of international hunters, members of the International Sheep Hunters Association, who can claim to have bagged all of the species and sub-species of wild sheep available for hunting worldwide. At the time, he needed to get members of 16 different species to qualify. He did it, becoming only the 128th person in the world to do so. To reach his goal, Morgan traveled the globe, visiting Russia, China, Mongolia, Canada, Australia and Europe in search of specific species. While in country, he hunted other animals as they were available, and, on his trip to Africa, he hunted leopard and plains game exclusively as there were no sheep in the part of the continent he visited. Recently, several countries have opened up to allow hunting that were not options when Morgan was pursuing his goal. It now takes 21 species and subspecies to take the prize, but Morgan said he is satisfied with what he has accomplished. Im happy with my achievement and have moved on to something different, Morgan said. Besides, the mountains are harder to climb now than they used to be. Morgan donated all of his mounted trophies, most of which were full-body mounts, to the University of Florida Natural History Museum. The collection was valued at $700,000. Along the way, Morgan served as state chapter president of Safari Club International for the Orlando club, then later as president of the National Safari Club International in 1984-85. He is also a past state chapter president of the Wild Turkey Federation. About two years ago, Morgan became fascinated with the Keystones Morgan: a life of the unique and unusualThe Bradford High School Football Boosters invite Tornado supporters to meet new head coach Corey Green, his family and staff at the Downtown Grill in Starke on Friday, July 11, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Green, who was previously the assistant head coach at Fleming Island High School, has 12 years of experience at Florida and Georgia schools. He is the son of longtime coach Danny Green. Green replaces Steve Reynolds, who resigned after two years and is now an assistant at Oakleaf High School. The Tornadoes play Buchholz in a preseason classic at Gainesvilles Citizens Field on Friday, Aug. 22, at 7:30 p.m. before opening the regular season with a home game against Suwannee on Friday, Aug. 29, at 7:30 p.m.BHS fans can meet new coach on July 11native African cattle known collectively as Watusi. (See sidebar.) He was drawn to the interesting history, rarity and, most of all, their impressive and unique appearance. He began to research the cattle on the Internet and soon discovered the World Watusi Association and, through it, a good friend and mentor in Joy Ryder of Black Walnut Springs, Missouri. It wasnt long until Morgan decided he just had to have some of the cattle. Ryder helped Morgan buy five animals early in 2013 and six more later in the year. Most of these animals were under 5 years of age, but one, D.H. Lightning was an 11-year-old cow that Morgan said he just had to have because her horn spread was so wide. Among the others was Popeye, a 3.5-year-old tame bull. The cattle are now producing offspring and thriving on Morgans C.S.T. Ranch. He said that, in the future, he sees Watusi cattle as providing beef, but for now he is still at what he calls the cow and calf phase. Since Morgans Watusi cattle are all foundation pure animals cattle that are genetically pure and have never been interbred with other typesthey are in demand as breeder by other enthusiasts. The cattle are not cheap, ranging in price from $1,500 to $2,000 each. If the animal is tame, the price goes up at least another $1,000, as it does if the animal is outstanding in confirmation, color, genetics or bloodlines. An animal that excels in all areas can sell for $25,000 or more. People who have other types of cattleor even some who keep no livestock at allare attracted to the unique appearance of the Watusi and call Morgan to see about purchasing one for a pet or, as Morgan puts it, a field ornament. I get a goodly number of calls every week from people driving by and seeing the cattle in the field and the sign for the ranch, Morgan said. They usually want to buy just one, but cool quickly when I tell them the price. I havent gotten any call-backs. Working with his cattle has led Morgan in another interesting direction on his acreage; growing perennial peanuts. These plants do not produce peanuts, but instead are grown for hay. The plants take about a year and a half to become fully established, with the rizomes forming a ground-covering mat. Once the plants are established, then the hay can be cut every time it reaches 6 inches in height. The plant is self-perpetuating. It can be produced at a cost that is competitive with alfalfa ($25 for a 50-pound bale) and has just as high a protein content, if not See MORGAN, 6B A group of Don Don Morgan See page 6B

to remember him. The family chose the following quoteby H. Jackson Brown Jr.to be inscribed on a plaque that has been placed beside the tree: Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. Rosier, who came up with the idea of planting a tree in Hobbs honor, said she received help from Jordan, Taylor and a lot of other people in making it a reality. The Hobbs family expressed its gratitude in being a part of the process. In the statement provided to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor, the family said, When Karen Jordan began working on the tree dedication, we were very pleased to be included in the planning process and are thankful that she used the quote the family chose for Johnnys plaque. positive experience for those he saw. Judges mentioned that he was respectful of everyone and loved doing good for our community.   They also spoke of Johnnys family, faith and kindness. These are all things that we recognized and loved about him, but were thankful to know that others also saw the good that he was doing. Rosier gave the welcoming remarks, discussing the shadetree story and how Bradford County Sheriffs Office Sgt. Diane Taylor and Karen Jordan, senior court operations consultant with the Eighth Judicial Circuit, were fond of referencing it. Rosier also mentioned that Courtroom 2 at the Bradford County Courthouse would always be Judge Hobbs courtroom. Circuit Judge James Colaw was one of several who spoke during the ceremony. He said the opportunity to speak at such a special ceremony was a privilege, but added it meant even more to do so in honor of a man he loved as a friend. I began my legal career with the State Attorneys Office in 1997 in Bradford County, and Judge Hobbs was the first judge I practiced in front of, Colaw said. He was my first picture of what a lawyer and what a judge should be. Colaw said it was Hobbs practice to offer attorneys the chance to sit with him following a trial and discuss the trial and offer critiques. I never missed those opportunities, Colaw said. We would talk about the trial for 10-15 minutes, and then the conversation would always evolve into hour-long discussions about life and family. He always talked about his family and his boys. It was evident how much he loved them and how proud of them he was. Hobbs served as an example of what a man and father should be, Colaw said. That is just how Hobbs family wished 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, J uly 10, 2014 BOUNCE HOUSE RENTALS Put a Bounce in Spring FloridaBounceRentals.com partytimebouncehouse@outlook.comServing Keystone Heights, Starke, Hampton, Earleton, Interlachen, Putnam Hall, Florahome COUPONS10% OFF 1st time booking 10% OFF for referrals 15% OFF for renting 2 or more units 5% OFF reservations made 4 weeks in advance352-745-1399 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Any time Judge Johnny Hobbs had to temporarily leave what was known as his courtroom Courtroom 2at the Bradford County Courthouse, his humorous reply would be to just let him have a big, shade tree to hold court under.

did not seem to have as hard a time as many people did. They had plenty to eat and no major money problems, despite the fact her father lost several thousand dollars in a bank failure. The only hardship she remembered from the time was the rationing of gasoline and sugar. She married King William (Bill) Parks on March 10, 1934. The couple lived in Cross City for a while, and then moved south to Palm Beach County.Bill was one of the first highway patrolmen in the state, working in 1936-37 in Homestead for the short-lived Florida Road Patrol, which only lasted one year. Parks said she can remember him getting ready for work, putting on boots and Jodhpur pants to ride his motorcycle. She remembered the funny stories he would tell her about the things he ran into on the job. In Homestead, the family rented a downstairs apartment. Parks remembered weathering a hurricane with her children at her landlords house next door it had proven able to withstand storms in the pastwhile Bill was out working on his motorcycle. She also remembered having an active social life, including attending dances in Miami. always like that, she wrote. We only had one building for out church. The men would sit on one side and the women and children on the other. They would pass around one of the mens hats to collect the offering, which wasnt much. Mama taught a class and was the church secretary. She further recalled, The pastor would come in on Saturday morning and pick out the best place to stay sometimes until Monday morning. It was always our house or Gladys (a first cousin) parents house; the home of the late Oscar Carter. I guess we had better food. The preacher lived in a little town not too far away, but we still didnt have church every Sunday. Parks remembered when her family was the only one around to have a car except for some local doctors. Her father bought a 1914 Ford touring car, and the girls kept it clean and polished. Parks particularly remembered the cars features. It had straight fenders, carbide lights and a crank you had to turn by hand. The radiator was trimmed in brass and looked like gold. If the top was down, and a rain came up quick, you would get soaked putting the curtains up because it took time.

This was true for local resident Louie Bell Parks when she celebrated her landmark birthday at Windsor Manor on Jan. 31. Although Parks is unable to communicate due to damage from a stroke about three years ago, her family, life and achievements live on in a journal she began in 2001 and in the memories of her son William Bill Parks. Parks is the daughter of wellknown early Lawtey farmer Uncle Marion D. Carter and his wife, Christina Dohm. Carter was born near Black Creek, about 5 miles north of Lawtey, on Oct. 4, 1873one of 11 children born to George Washington and Jane Austin Carter. Marion Carters wife, Dohm, was one of three daughters of German immigrants. In an old Telegraph interview, Carter said of his wife, She made me the smartest wife in the world. She was a concert violinist who died of Parkinsons disease in the 1920s. The couple married in 1900. Carter was well known in the area both as a farmer and, especially in his later years, as a teller of humorous tales. (See sidebar.) According to her memoirs, Louie Bell was born on Jan. 31, 1906, near Lawtey in a fourroom log cabin with porches all around. The doctor who attended at her birth was Dr. Brown, the familys physician for many years and, apparently a family friend as Louie Bell was named after his daughter. Her sister Melba followed in 1902. Parks fondest childhood memories center around her parents and paternal grandparents. I had such good parents and grandparent on Papas side, she wrote in her journal. They had so many grandchildren and they had a big place where we would go and play. Grandma would always have lots of cookies for us kids. They had lots of fruit treesoranges, figs, grapes, persimmonsand always a big vegetable garden besides the farm and horses. Those were the good ole days, so different from now. Parks memories of a simpler time include passing her childhood hours cutting out paper dolls and making paper The New River Community Health Center Board of Directors will meet July 16. 2014 at the Union County Library, located at 250 SE 5th Ave, Lake Butler, FL 32054 from 12:30 1:30 pm. 7/10 1tchg-B-sect Legals Dear Editor: On April 11, 2014 our whole lives changed as our son was taken from us in a traffic homicide. Until this day, no charges have been brought on this man, a Clay County bus driver who has never once said he was sorry but could hit and kill my son and return to work on that following Monday morning like he did nothing wrong. Shame on you Clay County for letting him climb back on a school bus after this. Clay County Sheriffs office say he just said C.R. 214 was dark that morning well thats why we have headlights, and why is it that I can sit on Ranchette Road on those school mornings and see the young lady that he saved walk from her front door all the way to the bus stop? My son walked from our house to that bus stop so she would not have to be there alone. Shame on Clay County Transportation for changing her bus stop for a week and then wanting her to go back to the other and having to walk by there everyday and having to have all those horrible memories come back. It is hard for me to drive by there, I cry every time I go by. There needs to be justice for Shane and this man needs to be charged and reminded everyday of what he has done. We did not get to see him walk across that stage, his name was called followed by in memory, never see him become a chef, open his own restaurant, or get married and become a father. I am tired of the run around and the idea that he thinks he can just kill a child and act like he did nothing wrong. He was the rock for all his peers he helped so many and now they wonder what are they going to do. His was   son, brother, grandson, cousin, uncle and friend who has truly earned his wings and be called a HERO he deserves JUSTICE. I just want to know what is taking so long.

She remembers walking 3 miles each way to school, starting at age 6, despite rain, cold, frost and icicles; it didnt matter. We never seemed to get sick or have to stay home. She recalled that when she and her sister got a little older, they came home to face chores. When we got home we had to change our school clothes and put on our everyday clothes to do some work on the farm. She said they did things like picking strawberries and picking up corn stalks. As the girls got older, they were able to participate in more social activities, such as cane grindings, playing games and even having boyfriends. The family attended what was then known as Clay Hill Baptist Church. (The name was later changed to Long Branch Church.) The pastors were not formally paid, but subsisted on the collections taken up when the hat was passed at services and on the largess of the community. For several years, the pastor was L.W.

changed, and World War II left much of Europe in shambles, interest in the animals as exhibits decreased, and some were sold to private individuals as several private herds were started. The first cattle to come to the United States arrived in the 1960s. In 1983, a group of people many of whom were already working with the cattlegot together in Denver to form the Ankole Watusi International Registry to keep track of breeding information and conserve the breed. Interest in this breed continues to grow, not only as purebred animals, but also as a useful contributor to hybrids. While Watusi are not good for dairy cattlemost give only 2 pints of milk a day to the detriment of their calftheir milk is rich in butterfat (about 10 percent), and some farmers are crossing Watusi with dairy breeds to increase their milks butterfat content. While not as large as some cattle used for beef production, meat from Watusi cattle is very low in fat and cholesterol, much more so than other breeds opening up possibilities for hybridizing as well. It seems the Watusi have found a home and are here to stay, both as their own unique selves and as contributors to hybrids with other breeds to improve products and increase hardiness. There is a reason they have survived so long in their inhospitable natural environment, and they will continue to do so in their new roles. The information provided here comes from local Watusi cattle rancher Don Morgan and the World Watusi Association website, watusicattle.com. BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Times and Monitor Imagine a breed of cattle that has been around for about 8,000 years and that were kept by the ancient Egyptians even before the building of the pyramids. Make them disease resistant, capable of thriving despite sparse nutrition and water and make them adaptable to a wide range of temperatures (120 degrees down to 20 degrees). While youre imagining, make these cattle capable of pretty much taking care of themselves, even defending themselves and their calves against lions and jackals. The best part of all this is that imagining is not necessary; these cattle exist and can be found in the breed known collectively as Watusi. The forefathers of this breed were known as the Egyptian or Hamitic Longhorns. Around 2000 B.C. they were interbred with humped cattle, called Longhorn Zebus (the ancestors of todays Brahma cattle) from the Indian sub-continent. These animals spread around eastern Africa and became known by many regional names (with some regional differences in the cattle themselves as well). In Uganda they are known as the Sanga variety called Ankole. In Rwanda and Burundi the cattle are known as Watusi and are considered sacred by many indigenous people. These animals are rarely killed, but kept for milk production since an owners wealth is measured in cattle. The giant horns which give the breed its distinctive appearance are not only a indicator of value, but also the reason for the animals heat tolerancethe horns are honeycombed inside with an extensive blood supply so they act as radiators, helping the animals body repel heat. In 1929-30, the Schulz family exported 42 head of Watusi cattle, including 14 bulls and 28 cows, to Germany, with six more brought in by Hermann Ruche in 1939. These 48 animals are the basis for all of the Foundation Pure animals that exist in the world outside of Africa. All went to zoos and game parks in Germany, Sweden and England for display.

Morgan is experimenting with 10 acres, which will be used for his cattle. Florida brings in about $330 million worth of alfalfa hay from out west every year, Morgan said. Most of this hay goes to horses. This hay can be produced in-state and, if it catches on, can keep all or some of that money here. Morgan also grows his own corn for his cattle and also grows watermelons. Growing melons has led him to the art of beekeeping, which he got into to ensure his melons were pollinated. When not working with his animals or crops, Morgan said he enjoys nature photography still hunting, but taking trophies without a gun. He also spends a great deal of time with granddaughter Baylee Sheppard, who lives on the ranch with her family. Sheppard is in FFA and has a young Angus steer she will be showing next year. (The FFA will not allow show steers with horns, so that excludes her grandfathers Watusi.) Morgan is enjoying life and loves his unique cattle, even when Popeye flips him over the food trough just by turning his head. You have to watch out for the horns, Morgan said. Its like getting whacked with a baseball bat, but its OK. He doesnt mean any harm. MORGANContinued from 1B

Bill worked in a jobs program through the Civilian Conservation Corps, building the Florida Cross-State Canal in 1939. The couple then farmed, first with Bills parents near Boynton Beach and then on their own land. They settled in on their land, but still made trips north to see family in Starke. The couple had two sons: Bud, born in Palm Beach County, and Bill, born in Starke. Bill remembered growing up on the farm and remembered how hard his mother worked on the farm. Parks divorced in 1957 and returned north to Bradford County in 1958. She lived alone in a small house on Cypress Street in Starke. She joined the Shands Starke auxiliary, of which she was a member for over 30 years. She also was a poll worker until she was 98, but it wasnt her age that made her resign. That was when there were all the questions about Bush and election accuracy, son Bill said. She said she was getting out of it because she was not going to get blamed for something. Parks continued to drive until she was 98 as well. She continued to live alone on Cypress Street, in a house with no air-conditioningshe took a window unit her son bought for her out of the window because she said it just didnt look right until she fell while doing yard work in 2010, when she was 103. She cracked her pelvis and had to be admitted to rehab, her son remembered. She fell again at age 106 and broke her leg just above the knee, requiring surgery. The doctor said he had never operated on someone as old as she was. Parks recovered well from the surgery, but then had a minor stroke, which still gives her problems communicating today. Im so glad she started writing about her life, her son said. If she hadnt written down those few pages, we would have lost those memories. She had an interesting life, and Im very glad I have had the chance to read her own words about it and share them with others. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, July 10, 2014 The following are excerpts from articles in the Bradford County Telegraph on Louie Bell Parks father, Uncle Marion D. Carter. BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph, Times and Monitor Uncle Marion D. Carter was a well-known and prosperous farmer in the Lawtey area during the late 1800s and early 1900s. He owned a 10-acre farm just up the road from Buddy Normans place, which was later owned by Bill Reddish. It came with a log cabin built by Ervin Norman. He worked the farm from 1900 until he retired in 1947. In his youth, Carter lived outside of Lawtey near Black Creek. He remembered attending school about 5 miles from his home. The teachera Mr. Dowling from Lake Butler would sometimes carry him across Black Creek. The school year lasted four or five months, and we had spelling, writing and reading, Carter said in an interview in the 1950s. I still remember the old blue-backed speller and the third-grade reader we used, and we all had a writing tablet. Some of the boys who went there at that time were Sam Norman, Francis Norman, Candace Norman, Lige Mosley, Son Mosley and Bosher Mosley. After settling on his own land, Carter set about making money. He said he grew cotton until the boll weevil made its appearance. He raised rice, strawberries, corn, peanuts, soldier beans and even eggplants, all of which sold because he said they did not know how to cook them. He also raised his own cattle, hogs and chickens, and kept the meat in his own smokehouse. Carter remembered clearly what market day in Starke was like in the early 1900s. On Saturday, wed take our cotton to market at Starke, using the old road east of the railroad tracks to get there, he said. Wed sell it at old Alvarezs cotton gin and then spend the day in Starke, visiting and buying supplies. Thered be a right smart number of people there. Seemed like the whole county come in to trade in those days. It was a lively place then. Carter remembered horses being traded, buying flour in 100-pound barrels and bacon selling for 5 cents a pound. Those were the good, old days, I declare, he reminisced. Lots better than now. Seems like everyone was happy then, but today it looks like everyone has a dread on his mind. Some of Carters other observations on life were: On food: Theyve kept improving this and improving that until, I declare, it isnt fit to eat. On having fun: Wed have frolics and dances all night. Sometimes it would be a log rolling, house raising or a fodder pulling, and it would generally be on a Friday night because we would go to town the next day anyway and didnt have to worry about staying up late. On snow: There was the one and only time I ever saw snow in my life. It was the big freeze of the late 90s (1890s). It came on a Sunday night; snowed during the night and blew in under the door and was all over the bed in the morning. There was snow on the porch that lasted for two days then. Man, but that freeze killed everything. It got all our fruit, including some fine pears that we used to ship to New York by the barrel and get good money for. It froze rutabagas in the ground so tight we couldnt pull them out. On living to be a ripe, old age: Work hard: Itll do you good; take a chew of tobacco, its good for your innards; eat salty meat and drink lots of water. On the future: Tell (the readers) Im looking for a widow woman. Anything under 65.Uncle Marion D.
