William Shogran Jr., a home-schooled student who was a member of the Sebastian River High School football team, died after experiencing vomiting and dizziness during football workouts. Shogran was the son of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper William Shogran Sr. The football team was at the military facility conducting its start-of-season camp when the 14-yearold became ill. A coach who called 911 told a Clay County Fire Rescue dispatcher that the student had a heat injury and was conscious, but had earlier vomited and was breathing erratically. Clay County Sheriffs Office public information coordinator Mary Justino wrote in an email that the investigation into Shograns death is ongoing, and the Alachua County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy the day following the incident. She also wrote that the cause of death will not likely be determined until toxicology and other test results come back from labs, which may take weeks. Based on interviews of players and coaches conducted by homicide Detective Kathryn Padgett, Justino provided a synopsis of the events leading to the players death. She wrote that the team, consisting of around 45, arrived at Camp Blanding at approximately 6 p.m. on Aug. 12. The team had a 45-minute evening workout in which Shogran participated. The team ate dinner and had lights out at 11 p.m. The following day, Shogran participated in weight conditioning from approximately 6:15 a.m. to shortly before 7, when the team went to breakfast. After the meal, players returned to their barracks where they cleaned up their living areas and waited for time to go to the field for practice. At approximately 8:45 a.m., the team relocated to the field where team members participated in position drills. BCSO investigating mans death BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor The Bradford County Sheriffs Office is investigating the Aug. 18 death of a Seminole Ridge resident. Raymond Hedrick, 53, the owner of Hedricks Hair Salon in Midway, was found dead by his mother. According to Capt. Brad Smith of the Bradford County Sheriffs Office, the two shared a home and the mother had been away for a few hours running errands. When she returned, she found Hedrick in the kitchen. Smith added that investigators found no signs of foul play at the scene and that the deceased had lacerations on his head consistent with him falling on the kitchen floor. Smith also said that because Hedricks personal physician refused to sign off on the death certificate, investigators sent the body to the Alachua County Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy. Smith said that the medical examiner completed the autopsy on Aug. 19 but toxicology and other lab tests may delay the conclusion of the investigation for several weeks. A former co-worker of Hedricks said that since April or May, the business owner had been working by appointment only from his S.R. 21 salon and was not maintaining regular business hours. School year launches with focus on academics and school spirit BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Lunches were packed, backpacks were strapped on and the buses rolled as Bradford County went back to school Monday. Its something teachers, administrators and their supporters have actually been preparing weeks for. There are some new faces, like Talitha Chestnut and Courtney Maynor at Starke Elementary. People already well known for their work in the system are in new positions as well. Jennifer Vaughan, for example, is at Lawtey Elementary School as principal, while Mallory McConnell and Ray Schaefer have moved up to principal and assistant principal at the middle school. Earnest Williams, meanwhile has moved to the principal position at Southside, and backing him up is Denise Ricks. The former curriculum resource teacher at Lawtey Elementary was promoted to assistant principal at Southside this year. I am the new assistant principal at Southside Elementary. I couldnt be more excited to be here. Bradford County has a great future ahead and I am proud to be included in it, said Ricks, who also taught elementary and middle school grades for more than a decade in Union County and is brining that experience to her position. Transitioning from Lawtey Elementary with a relatively small staff and student population to a much larger staff and student population has been far smoother than expected. Southside Elementary is focusing on key components to make great gains in student progress. Expect to hear great things about Southside School and its kids this year, she said. Southsides annual patriotic program on Sept. 11 will also serve as an open house for the school. Beginning at 6 p.m., students will perform and parents will also get to meet with teachers and administrators. INSIDE: Health Department Spreads Message Chief Discusses Response Time Hackers swipe patient data from hospitals BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Shands Starke Regional Medical Centers corporate owner announced Monday that patient records were compromised when its computers were hacked. Data on 4.5 million patients nationwide was reported stolen from Community Health Systems, which owns, leases or operates 206 affiliated hospitals in 29 states. Computer hackers stole data including names, Social Security numbers, birthdays, physical addresses and telephone numbers all information that could be used to assist in identity theft. Credit card information and medical histories were not compromised. Anyone receiving treatment from a CHS-affiliated hospital, physician or clinic in the last five years is reportedly at risk. In addition to Shands Starke, CHS owns the Shands hospitals and Live Oak and Lake City (Lake Shore). According to CNN, the information could allow someone to open a bank or credit card account under a stolen identity, or even take out a loan. Someones personal credit history could be ruined. You dont necessarily have to have been a patient for your information to be in the system. If you were at some time referred by another health care provider to a CHS-affiliate, a record containing your information could have been on file. According to CHS, the hacks took place in April and June of this year by individuals in China using sophisticated malware. The FBI is involved in the investigation to apprehend the perpetrators, who have been linked to other incidents of corporate espionage. The malware has since been wiped from the companys computers and new protections installed. There is unfortunately little that its customers can do to protect themselves. In a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, CHS said it would be notifying those 4.5 million patients as required by state and federal laws. CHS, which is open to lawsuits seeking damages, reported it carries liability insurance to protect it from losses and will offer identity theft protection to victims of the data breach. Those who feel they are at risk can also check their own credit history or employ a company that can monitor and notify them of any suspicious activity. Andrew Emery, who took over the CEO position at Shands Starke in July, did not return a call for comment Tuesday. A News4Jax employee reported he was escorted out of the hospital when inquiring about the situation on Monday. Shands Starkes marketing and Members of the Pleasant Grove community provided supplies for the giveaway with the Bradford County Democratic Executive Committee supplying pens, pencils and other supplies as well. There was no shortage of youngsters waiting to get their stuff, as shown here.

It also stated: We take very seriously the security and confidentiality of private patient information and we sincerely regret any concern or inconvenience to patients. Though we have no reason to believe that this data would ever be used, all affected patients are being notified by letter and offered free identity theft protection. Many American companies and organizations have been victimized by foreignbased cyber intrusions. It is up to the federal government to create a national cyber defense that can prevent this type of criminal invasion from happening in the future. A special toll-free phone number has been set up for affected patients who receive letters, but patients who do not receive letters can also call 1-855-205-6951 to confirm their personal information was not compromised. CHS settles Medicare investigation Theres no mention of the hacking on Community Health Systems website, but a recent release does address another issue facing the company: the resolution of United States Justice Department investigation into whether 119 CHS hospitals billed Medicare and other programs for inpatient care that should have been billed as outpatient or observational care. The settlement of the investigation represents the companys desire to avoid the expense and distraction of litigation. According to the release: Under the terms of the agreement, there is no finding of improper conduct by Community Health Systems or its affiliated hospitals, and the company has denied any wrongdoing. The company has agreed to pay $88,257,500 in resolution of all federal government claims, including Medicare, TRICARE and the federal share of the Medicaid claims, and an additional $892,500 to the states for their portions of the Medicaid claims. The settlement agreement does not cover current government investigations into certain hospitals formerly affiliated with (Health Management Associates), which were initiated before Community Health Systems acquisition of HMA in January 2014. The company continues to cooperate with the government and is working to bring resolution to these investigations. CHS Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Wayne T. Smith attributed any misjudgment on the part of billing to shifting and often ambiguous standards. Our organization is dedicated to high ethical standards as we strive to operate in a complex and ever changing regulatory environment, he stated.

The list goes on..Call Mary Today at 904-964-6305 Also this year we are implementing a new phonics program and a supplemental reading program in kindergarten through third grade. We anticipate our students making great progress in these areas this year, said Ricks. Their education will be more rounded as well as students learn about the arts through the library, computers and the help of a new music teacher. At Hampton Elementary, one of the districts A schools, Principal Brenda Donaldson and the staff are emphasizing attendance, and one of the goals of a revised code of conduct for the district is getting gets to class on time every day. We are looking forward to another school year that encourages students arriving on time, 7:35 a.m., and being in attendance all day (to 2:10 p.m.), Donaldson said. Beginning Sept. 2, we will resume our (monthly) perfect attendance incentive of a drawing for a $25 gift card to Walmart. In order to participate you must be on time at 7:35 a.m., stay all day, and not check out before 2:10 p.m. School attendance is the law, but its also key to learning success. Research is increasingly showing that attendance at all ages is incredibly important and is directly correlated to student success and graduation rates, Donaldson said. According to a study conducted by the American Pediatric Association, they found that when students are chronically absent during kindergarten that these students perform lower academically in first grade. So no skipping! Hampton Elementary will continue working to improve its already outstanding academic record by implementing additional resources to help students with writing, reading comprehension and mathematics. The principal is also encouraging parents to be involved by reminding them of the monthly PTO/SAC meetings, which take place in the cafeteria on the third Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. Come out and be a part of this organization that involves parents and staff members raising monies that go right back into the classroom for additional school supplies, technology needs and curriculum materials, Donaldson said. Debbie Parmenter, principal of the districts other A school in Brooker, said they are still celebrating raising the schools performance, but theyre not resting on their laurels. An upcoming program will help parent get involved in their childs learning. We have added six Parent Info Nights that will feature the Love and Logic program, she said. Parents will have the opportunity to view short videos that provide strategies for working with their children. Parents will also be updated with the most current data measures on their child. School improvement discussions will also be held. Meanwhile, students will have entertaining activities with the teachers. The info night series will begin on Sept. 9, and continue on Oct. 14, Nov. 4, Jan. 13, Feb. 24 and March 31. Like Hampton and the other elementary schools in the district, Brooker will be using a new computer resource, Achieve 3000, to improve reading skills in grades four and five. Use of the i-Ready math program is being extended down to kindergarten. Our focus this year is to continue to prepare students for career and college readiness by helping them to become active problem solvers and independent learners, Parmenter said. Bradford High Principal Bryan Boyer had similar thoughts as he reflected on last years accomplishments and laid out this years goals. As I begin my second year as principal of Bradford High, I am humbled to serve such a supportive and friendly community, he said. Last school year we focused on creating a one-school culture. We focused on school-wide procedures and developed a safe and civil school campus. We targeted our writing FCAT scores as being an area of need and were able to improve our scores dramatically. In addition, we started a positive behavior support team in our school. This team has helped and is actively helping create positive rewards for our students who choose to follow schoolwide expectations. That one-school culture Boyer mentioned is a big part of whats coming this year as the PBS team has already been working hard to improve school spirit among studentspresent and past. The culture of Bradford High School has changed due to the buy-in of knowing that each one of us is part of something much bigger than ourselves. This is in quotes as this has been a long-standing tradition for the Bradford High School football team for many years. We are Tornadoes is our theme and you can expect to see this all around our campus and our community as we get excited and prepared for the future of Bradford High, Boyer said. That future includes a new assessment test from the state, so teachers have been collaborating and analyzing student achievement data to determine how to continue preparing students for success, Boyer said. And while the school is excited about academics, he said theres plenty to look forward to in the sports arena as well. We are also looking forward to having our new head football coach and his staff on our campus, he said. The coaching staff has already made a huge impact on our campus and in the community. Other happenings Bradford High School has an open house for families scheduled for Monday, Sept. 8, at 6:30 p.m. beginning in the auditorium. Among the opportunities, the BradfordUnion Technical Center will have career specialists in the media center ready to discuss programs including agriculture and horticulture, allied health assisting, automotive service technology, building construction technology, computer systems and information technology, diesel mechanics, digital design, diversified career technology, early childhood education, emergency medical responder, health sciences, medical skills, and welding technologies.

Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. I have a small persimmon tree that just began to fruit several years ago. Its planted across the road from our house on Hampton Lake, so I forget to check on it as often as I should. Recently, I noted several masses of webbing on the ends of its branches. A number of the lower branches were completely denuded of leaves. Id seen these types of webs on pecan trees before, but never on my persimmon. I decided to research the issue and see what I could find out. I discovered the webs are caused by fall webworms, which are native to much of North America and are one of the few insect pests that have been introduced from our continent to other parts of the world. The caterpillars that are feeding on my persimmon tree hatched from eggs laid by adult fall webworm moths, which are snow white and about an inch and a half long. After four to six weeks of feeding, the caterpillars will leave the host tree and spin a cocoon in which they will overwinter. Next spring, the adult moths will emerge and mate, the females will lay eggs and the cycle will repeat itself. Each webworm nest can contain hundreds of webworms and can be expanded to three feet across or more. While the webbing caused by these critters can be alarming, it rarely causes serious injury to trees. Webworms only damage foliage and do not kill the branches upon which the nests are formed. Because the branches will grow new leaves next year, there is no need to cut them out of the tree to remove the nests, which will naturally weather away during the winter. Established trees can handle losing a large amount of foliage, especially in late summer and early fall. So in most cases, there is no need to do anything about fall webworms. The only exception is young, recently planted trees that can be completed defoliated by these pests. The best course in such cases is to physically remove webworms before significant leaf loss occurs. Mary W.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County Health Department fulfills its mission every day to help sick people get well, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so part of that mission must be helping people to avoid getting sick in the first place. For many people, that means losing weight. Jim Lyons, a consultant with the health department, said the problem with weight in Florida is so troubling that the states surgeon general has made tackling the issue one of his top initiatives. Florida Surgeon General John Armstrong noted that as a state, Florida is out of shape. Only 36 percent of Floridians are in good shape and a healthy weight, so more than 60 percent of all Floridians are overweight, Lyons said. With that extra weight comes increased chance of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other maladies, as well as resulting health care costs exceeding $34 billion over the next 17 years. Weight is the states number one public health threat. In response, Armstrong began Floridas Healthiest Weight Initiative (www. healthiestweightflorida.com), and the Bradford County Health Department is on board doing what it can to spread the message. When Armstrong learned about the Florida Department of Transportations latest litter prevention education campaign, he saw an opportunity to link litter control and weight control. Because physical activity is essential to maintaining a healthy weight, Armstrong issued a challenge to county health departments around the state: Found a volunteer team to participate in a regular adopt-aroadway or other outdoor cleanup campaign. By looking after the health of the environment, participants will simultaneously be looking after their personal health. The health department group will be cleaning up a portion of S.R. 230, including Call Street inside the city of Starke. Our health department employees will be doing this as part of our Healthiest Weight Initiative. Were all part of the community, we want to give back to the community, and we also want to show that were leading the activities by being active ourselves, Lyons said. He also said the health department would be involved in other ways in helping people achieve their optimum weight. Why adopt a roadway? According to the state: Every year, millions of visitors get their first glimpse of our state from their car windows as they travel along Floridas highways. We all end up paying to clean up Floridas highways, parks and waterways. Local governments spend thousands to keep litter off miles of locally maintained roads. A poll conducted by the University of Florida revealed that the top three items littered consisted of paper (22 percent), cigarette butts (18 percent) and fast food waste (6 percent). Litter collects in and around areas such as parking lots, vacant lots, loading docks, dumpsters, construction sites, residential neighborhoods, streets, shorelines and roadsides. Why increase your activity? According to the Florida Department of Health, regular physical activity can produce long-term health benefits. People of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities can benefit from being physically active. The more physical activity you do, the greater the health benefits. Being physically active can help: Control weight. Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Reduce the risk of some cancers. Strengthen bones and muscles. Improve mental health and mood. Improve ability to do daily activities and prevent falls in older adults. Increase the chances of living longer. How do I adopt a roadway? According to the resolution adopted by the county commission in 2004, organizations wishing to participate in the Adopt-aRoad Program will commit to cleaning up the right of way adjacent to a two-mile stretch of roadway at least four times a year. The county acknowledges this commitment by erecting signage recognizing the group. The program exists as a way to express civic pride as well as a way to assist the countys work crews, allowing them to focus more effort on road maintenance. Those interested in participating can apply through the county managers office and begin once an agreement has been approved by the county commission. Expo highlights expanded services at enhanced health department BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph In recognition of National Community Health Center Week the New River Community Health Center at the Bradford County Health Department held Health Expo 14 on Aug. 14, offering free health screenings and valuable health care information to the public. The main focus of this years event was to make the public aware that the facility is now a full service health care center that is offering many services not previously offered, Jim Lyons, NRCHC community outreach spokesman said. We want people to know that we have expanded services to be able to provide better care for those who need our services. Some of the new services will be offered through a cooperative agreement with Global Mobile Diagnostics of Florida and include nerve conduction velocity testing, ultrasound and X-ray services, testing for dizziness and balance issues (videonystagmography) and testing for peripheral artery disease. Health care partnerships are also in effect with Gainesville OBGYN, the Baker County Health Departments dental health services (like the Kids Dental Bus), Meridian and Peaceful Paths Domestic Abuse Network. Joseph Pietrangelo, administrator for both the Bradford and Union county health departments, said this improvement has been a long time coming. We applied for a grant in 2010 to do this, and were funded for Union County in 2012, Pietrangelo said. We expanded to include Bradford County in 2013. The grant money is the seed money for this project. It will be sustained by the fees we charge for services. Pietrangelo said that the health department still existed as an agency for public health, continuing to offer such core services as vital records, environmental health, communicable disease treatments (STDs, HIV, etc.), epidemiology tracking, family planning and school health. Offerings at the health fair included ultrasound thyroid screenings, bone density analysis, balance assessment and blood pressure checks, all provided by staff and employees of Global Mobile Diagnostics. A great deal of information was available to the public about Florida Kids Care and other programs. Certified application counselor Staci Griffis was on hand to encourage people to come see her about signing up for the affordable health care act. Representative from all of NRCHCs health care partners offered information and free gifts. We want the community to be aware that we are there for them, Lyons said. We want everyone to have access to the best health care available and we are trying to help everyone, especially the people who may otherwise fall through the cracks in the health care system.

BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph According to the Florida Department of Elder Affairs, there are over 500 probable cases of Alzheimers disease in Bradford County. Most of the persons caring for these patients are elderly themselves. With little or no training or support for the task, it can be overwhelming. Fortunately, help is available, at no cost, for those dealing with such responsibilities. Lauren Dean, caregiver coach with Elder Options, the Mid Florida Area Agency on Aging, will be facilitating a six-week course called Savvy Caregiving at the Bradford Senior Center, 1805 N. Temple Ave. in Starke, beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 3, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., and continuing weekly on Wednesdays at the same time through Oct. 8. Dean said most people who wind up as caregivers dont have the opportunity to plan for it. As a consequence, many are unprepared for the job, which continues until the patient succumbs to the disease, usually anywhere from seven to 10 years after onset of symptoms. Francine Rogers of Starke understands the challenges of caring for an elderly parent with dementia. Although her training and experience as a special education teacher provided some of the skills she needed to cope with her mothers dementia, she found herself getting run down trying to think for two. A conversation with friend Nancy Odom prompted Rogers to start a support group for caregivers at First United Methodist Church of Starke two years ago, shortly before her mothers death. The group has been meeting at the Bradford County Senior Center for the past year. Meetings take place on the second Monday of each month from 11 a.m. until noon and are open to everyone. They begin with a devotional, usually followed by information or education about dementia or available support services. Often, guest speakers from organizations such as Hospice or the Alzheimers Association make presentations. The final segment of the meetings includes an opportunity for participants to talk about what is going on in their lives and ask questions. I think it is a comfort to them. They benefit just being able to talk to someone. It lets them know they are not alone. Although Rogers has not participated in the Savvy Caregiver program, she wants to help get the word out. I think it would be very beneficial to those in that situation. I learned a lot by trial and error. Like Rogers support group, the Savvy curriculum offers information and education about a variety of caregiving topics. In the first session, participants learn about the jobs that comprise the caregiving role and the knowledge, skills and outlook that pertain to each. They study different types of dementias and learn about the medications prescribed for them. The second session identifies cognitive losses experienced by the eight key areas of the brain, examining the decline of thinking, the resulting effects on behaviors and the implications of these losses for caregivers. It also includes suggested positive approaches to caregiver self-care. The third session introduces the concept of Contented Involvement as a reasonable goal for caregiving and equips caregivers to match tasks and activities to abilities. The fourth session expands on Contented Involvement and presents a simple model of behavior to help caregivers understand why dementia makes persons act the way they do. It also includes instruction on useful communication techniques and strategies for dealing with common behavioral problems. The fifth session takes an in-depth look at confusion and its implications for caregiving. The sixth and final session introduces an easy-to-use model for decision-making, examines ways to work effectively with family and friends and explores techniques for making the most of doctor visits. Persons interested in registering for the Savvy program can contact Lauren Dean at 352378-6649, extension 177, or by email at deanl@agingresources. org. Those interested in the caregivers support group can contact the senior center or First United Methodist Church for more information or simply attend one of the sessions. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Clay County Fire Rescue Chief Lorin Mock said his agencys nearly six-minute response time to a football player suffering heat distress symptoms less than one mile from CCFRs Station 25 on Camp Blanding points to the need for better technology. On Aug. 13, a coach from Sebastian River High Schools football team called 911 to report a player suffering from vomiting and dizziness. About five minutes later, as a CCFR truck was seen approaching the player, 14-yearold William Shogran Jr. lost consciousness. Emergency medical workers rushed him to Shands Starke where he later died. When asked if he thought the response time was in line with his departments standards, Mock replied that under normal conditions, the time would not be satisfactory. The chief added that the delay was primarily due to inadequate directions given by the caller about the location of the player and an erroneous assessment of how serious the players condition was at the time of the call. The caller initially told a CCFR dispatcher that the team was on a field near Camp Blandings front gate. Firefighters went to a field surrounded by the camps rappel tower. Finding no one there, they then searched the area around the Camp Blanding Museum. Moments later, they found the team on the facilitys parade grounds, about halfway between the main gate and Kingsley Lake. According to one media account, Florida National Guard medics were performing CPR on the player when CCFR personnel arrived. Mock added that most visitors to Camp Blanding are not familiar with the facilitys street names or landmarks and therefore cannot adequately give dispatchers an accurate picture of where they are. In an audio recording of the coachs 911 call, the caller said he was on the facilitys parade grounds. A dispatcher then asked him what street he was on. Its on Camp Blanding, the coach replied. On the joint training base. I understand that, the dispatcher said. Is it on St. Augustine Street? Theres, you know, regular streets there. Its the main one at the main entrance, said the caller. The big one at the main entrance. I dont were here. Its close to the main gate? interrupted the dispatcher. Its at the main gate, said the coach. Mock said his agency ran into similar problems over the past month, during Florida National Guard annual training. He said his agency received several calls requesting assistance for guardsmen with heat exhaustion symptoms, and that during those calls, his personal had difficulty locating patients. The chief said he thought one solution to the problem is technology that uses GPS tracking in cell phones that would give dispatchers the exact location of callers. He added that he is looking into acquiring that technology. According to an event report, it took firefighters two minutes and four seconds to leave the station after the dispatch call ended. Mock said the national standard for first responders to leave the station is one minute, while CCFRs daytime standard is 30 seconds. However, Mock said that he suspects the actual time it took for firefighters to leave the station was much less than two minutes. He said that the enroute time is either marked by a radio call from firefighters to the dispatcher, or by an on-board computer within the vehicle. He added that the computer en-route time is often delayed, due to boot up and connection time. A firefighter from another Northeast Florida fire department corroborated Mocks statement. Mock also said that his agency was handling a fire in another area of the county at the time of the coachs 911 call, so radio traffic was heavy, and the en-route time called into the dispatcher may have been delayed. Mock said his employees followed all the protocols they were supposed to follow. The chief also said that based on information provided by the caller, the dispatcher classified Shorans condition as general sickness, a classification that would have dictated responding units conform to posted speed limits and other traffic controls like stop signs. He added that based on the patients quickly deteriorating symptoms, his condition at the time of the call was likely worse than general sickness. He added, however, that dispatchers could only act on the information given to them by callers. Shogran, during this time, was heard by teammates saying that he did not feel well. The head coach and assistant coaches said that they had no knowledge of these statements at that time. A short time later, Shogran was observed walking towards the sidelines where water was located. When the head coach asked if he was okay, Shogran replied that he was dizzy. The coach said he then began providing the player with water and removed his shoulder pads and other equipment. The coach said Shogran then told him that he felt like he was going to pass out. The coach then called 911. The sheriffs office received the call at 10:47 a.m., and transferred it to Clay County Fire Rescue dispatchers. As CCFR personnel arrived, Shogran became lethargic and unresponsive. Firefighters performed CPR and transported the player to Shands Starke, where he was pronounced dead. At 1:21 p.m., hospital personnel notified the sheriffs office that the player had died. The sheriffs office then sent patrol officers and Padgett to Camp Blanding to begin the investigation. The team returned to central Florida later in the day. The assistant superintendent for Indian River County Schools, Bill Fritz, said grief counselors would be on hand when the team reached the campus. The Sebastian River High School football team was at a team-building retreat in the Gainesville area today, he said, reading from a prepared statement. We received a call late this morning indicating a player was in medical distress and later were informed that he passed away. The district and school are deeply saddened by this news, he continued, according to TcPalm. com. The team is en route back to Sebastian River High School this afternoon. Grief counselors are being made available to the players.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer There was a hole in Leah Kimbrells life. She had a son, but she didnt know where he was or how he was doing. She gave him up for adoption after his birth, and though she made the decision with love in her heart, she regretted it every day. Kimbrell, who lives in Starke, simply wanted her child to have a good life. As a single mother at the age of 18, she felt she didnt have the resources to give it to him. Today, Kimbrell is a new woman. She found her son, Steven Jones, who is living in Jacksonville. The two met each other in person on Aug. 10. I am whole now, Kimbrell said. Kimbrells grandmother, Joyce Altman, who also lives in Starke, was there for the reunion and has seen how recent events have impacted her oldest grandchilds life. You wouldnt believe the difference in her personality, Altman said. Kimbrell said, The only reason I thought to live was to wait for this day to happen. My hearts full. The meeting took place initially at Arbys in Starke. Kimbrell, as you can imagine, was nervous and excited. She arrived at the restaurant first and waited in her vehicle until she saw Jones drive up. I got out of the truck as fast as I could, Kimbrell said. I hollered his name. He came across the parking lot. He actually held his arms out to hug me. The two went inside Arbys and talked before then going to Altmans home. Jones met not only Kimbrell and Altman, but also Kimbrells husband, Bruce, Kimbrells mother, Kay Lowe, and Kimbrells stepson, Scott. Jones also met his second cousin, Chase, and great aunt, Sheila Altman. He liked everybody, Kimbrell said. He thought everybody was wonderful. It was a reunion with a family that didnt want to lose the young man in the first place. The whole family was against my decision, Kimbrell said, referring to the adoption. Kimbrell was 17 when she got pregnant. She said the father of the child didnt want her to go through with the birth and had something extremely negative to say about the whole situation. As soon as he said that, I packed my stuff and walked right out of the house and left him, Kimbrell said. She didnt believe in abortion and admitted she didnt want to give up her child to adoption. However, Kimbrell looked at her life and felt she couldnt give her child the life he deserved. I wanted him to have what I couldnt afford to give him, Kimbrell said. Other family members were willing to do what they could to keep the child and raise it. I begged her not to give him up for adoption, Altman said. I said I would take care of him. Kimbrell said her grandmother had too much going on in her life. Altman, while working full time, was caring for her 80-plusyear-old mother, her husband, who was in ill health, and raising a 5-year-old grandson. Kimbrells mother also said shed raise the child, but Kimbrell didnt want her son to question why other family members were raising him instead of her. Plus, he wouldnt have had a father in the picture. The adoptive parents, Steven and Carol Jones, offered exactly what Kimbrell wanted for her son. They seemed like wonderful people, Kimbrell said. It turned out they were wonderful people. Not that it made the decision to give her son up easy. Kimbrell said she certainly wouldnt Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region FEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL Woman reunites with son after 24 years An emotional Leah Kimbrell (right) reacts to her son, Steven Jones, hugging her mother, Kay Lowe.

Now she lives in her grandmothers house built in 1950, the same year she was born and expresses what she calls her God-given love and talent for growing flowers, especially roses. I remember when I was a ABOVE: Margaret Williams (right) and her niece, Alexis Cummings, enjoy sitting on the porch overlooking the garden. RIGHT: Margaret Williams walks among her knockout roses.

little girl my mother always had flowers, Williams said. On Fridays, when I would get home from school, I would collect a bouquet and bring it into the house for the weekend. When I was living in Jacksonville I got in the habit of buying a bouquet every Friday. Then one day I realized I was still doing what I did as a child. Williams said she did garden in a limited way in Jacksonville, but that it was when she returned to Lawtey that she really began to garden in earnest. She credits her niece, Alexis Cummings, for getting her into rose gardening. She said she wanted me to grow roses, Williams said. I wasnt sure I had the patience or skill to grow them, but then I heard about knockout roses. According to Williams, knockout roses are a type of hedge rose which has gained in popularity because it is cold and disease resistant, as well as being very easy to care for. These are roses for people that love the flower, but who dont have a lot of time to devote to growing them, Williams said. I trim them twice a year the week of Feb. 14 and sometime in October add new soil and compost each spring and fertilize them every 8-12 weeks. The roses must be deadheaded frequently. Thats it! Williams has her own compost pile, which she continuously feeds with any fruit and vegetable scraps from her kitchen, plus yard trimmings and leaves. She said that banana peels, rinsed eggshells and coffee grounds add extra nutrition to the mix and she warns against putting anything into the mix that contains sugar. Williams said the compost mix must be turned and mixed about every 3-4 weeks, so it is best kept in a large container, like the big bowl she uses. All of Williams knockout roses are red, because she said the pink variety are more difficult to grow and delicate. She also grows great many other types of plants and flowers, including caladiums, mums, impatiens, lilies, hydrangeas, confederate jasmine, crepe myrtle, azalea, Boston ferns and confederate rose. Her yard is a haven for butterflies. A woman driving by on her way to Orange Park stopped to admire the garden last year and suggested the white picket fence that now borders the front of the property. Williams is a retired medication technician who has worked in hospice and assistedliving settings. She has two sons, Ernest Whitley, of Pleasant Grove and Rico Williams of Ft. Lauderdale. She shares her home with Sweetie, the poodle, and two cats, Michael and Tom. I will always remember my grandmother sitting out in this porch reading her Bible, Williams said. Every morning I come out here with my coffee and just look at the flowers. God gave me a gift with flowers and when he gives you a talent you have to give yourself to it. want anyone else to go through what she went through. She was basically depressed every day, thinking about the son she gave up. If I did stop thinking about him, or for a minute he went out of my mind, I felt worse, Kimbrell said. Kimbrell knew she wanted to try to locate her son, but she couldnt do so until he turned 18. She performed searches on adoption websites and got a lot of help from friends through Facebook. Her cousin Melissa Hardison was a huge help. In fact, it was Hardison who eventually found Kimbrells son. She didnt want to full believe it at first, Kimbrell said. She had experienced many dead ends previously and didnt want to get her hopes up. Still, she admitted she got a little excited. Hardison later found and directed Kimbrell to the Facebook profile of Steven Jonesthe adoptive father. Hardison then found the Facebook page for Kimbrells son. Kimbrell was still in a state of disbelief, asking herself, Is this really true? Is this him? Is this really happening to me? There was a certain amount of trepidation in even conducting a search for her son. Would he want to find out who his birth mother was? Would he want to talk to her? She didnt know if he would accept her, Altman said. When they talked to each other before the meeting in Starke, Kimbrell found out that her son had the same fears as her. He didnt want to intrude upon her life and wondered if shed even want to hear from him. We were scared of how we would impact each other, Kimbrell said. Yet all doubts and fears went away with that meeting at Arbys when Jones approached his mother with his arms outstretched, ready to give her a hug. That was the best feeling in the world, Kimbrell said. I dont know if anybodys ever felt that great. It became apparent that Jones adoptive parents kept their word when they met with Kimbrell 24 years ago. They told her they would never tell Jones anything negative about his birth mother. They explained the circumstances surrounding the adoption. Kimbrell said Jones told her he did not have any bad feelings toward her. He knew this was a hard decision for me, and he knew the reasons I did it, Kimbrell said. As for what kind of relationship theyll have in the future, Kimbrell said that remains to be seen. Right now, theyre taking things slow. Im looking forward to being able to have him comfortable enough with me to share more with me, Kimbrell said. Jones spent more than five hours visiting with Kimbrell and other family members on that Aug. 10 visit to Starke. Before he left to return to Jacksonville, he told Kimbrell he would return in a couple of weeks and have lunch with her. He initiated the next visit, and he told me he loved me, Kimbrell said. Kimbrell will cherish that moment and all the moments that follow. She feels complete now and experiences a joy in life she never felt since giving birth to her one and only child. Over half my life Ive been waiting for him, Kimbrell said. Now, I have so much more to look forward to. 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 The Right Experience.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Corey Green is no different from any other football coach he wants to win games. However, since the new Bradford High School head coach and his staff have gotten a late startGreen was hired in Junethe emphasis isnt so much on wins and losses, but on seeing constant improvement. Right now, were definitely not wanting to talk about wins and losses, Green said. As far as success goes, we have a goal as a coaching staff and as a team right now that were working ongetting better each and every day. Right now, thats what our kids are shooting for. So far, we feel like weve done that. Installation of our offensive and defensive schemes have gone pretty smoothly up to this point. Green said players have done a good job of focusing on what their new coaches are teaching them and are doing everything asked of them. Still, he realizes there are several factors that could impact the Tornadoes this yearthe lack of a large group of seniors, players having to learn new offensive and defensive schemes and a coaching staff learning how to work together. My defensive staffnone of these guys have ever worked together before, Green said. Luckily, on offense, three of us have worked together before and kind of know what to expect from each other on the field. That defensive staff is composed of Quentin Jefferson (co-coordinator, defensive line), Robert Paxia (co-coordinator, secondary) and returning BHS assistant Josh Burch (linebackers). Green will serve as offensive coordinator and coach running backs. He is joined by Paxia (offensive line), Dan Foor (offensive line), Kenny Mudge (quarterbacks), BHS graduate Adrian Mosley (wide receivers) and his father, longtime head coach Danny Green, who will work with Mosley and the wide receivers. Mosley has been a key person in helping Green get out and make contacts in the community. Green said Mosley has definitely been an asset. As for having his father on the staff, its a role reversal, as Green had the chance to coach under his father at Orange Park High School. As Green put it, hes now on the other end of the table in meetings, but he added, I, as well as the rest of the coaches, will definitely open our ears when he has something to say. We definitely take that into account and really value his opinion. When he looks at the offense he will be coordinating, Green said one of the strengths is an offensive line that features such players as seniors Travis Hinds and Trevor Shannahan. They just work hard, Green said. Right now, their skill set has changed, but when you talk to them, theyre yes-sir, nosir kids. They nod their heads. They understand whats going on. They want to learn the new system. All of the players battling for spots on the offensive line have done a good job in working to learn new techniques for what will be more of a wing-T-style offense. The guys seem to be on board with that and are doing a good job, Green said. The coach said other players he sees as being important contributors on the line are senior Dustin Orton, who shows promise despite not having played much the last couple of years, and a couple of players who have been more notable for their play on the defensive line senior Don Jeffers and junior Johnny Hernandez. We feel like its easier to transition a defensive lineman to an offensive lineman than vice versa, Green said. If they can play defense, we feel like we can teach them offensive line. That offensive line will be providing protection for another strength of the offense quarterback Jacob Luke, a senior who has started the last two seasons. Green said from watching game tape from last year, it is apparent Luke is physically and mentally tough. He also brings leadership to the field. He seems to be a good leader for us, Green said. Hes one of those guys who leads by example by his effort and attitude. Luke is still learning how to execute the offense, but he is working hard to do so. In our system, you have to be really good with your feet and really good with your hand fakes, Green said. Thats been a learning curve for Jacob up to this point. Hes gotten better each and every day from that standpoint. Hes still not where we need him to be, and I think he understands that, but hes working hard to get there. Junior quarterback Chance Oody has helped in the transition. Hes had some experience running the wing-T in the past and that has helped (Luke) as far as his learning progression, Green said. Green likes the players he has at wide receiver, including senior Don Jeffers and sophomore Carlton Hankerson. Don seems to have a pretty good, sure set of hands on him, Green said. You can tell hes caught the football quite a bit in the past. Carlton brings the speed factor to us from the receiver standpoint. Hes going to be an excellent football player. Green also likes junior Shawn Aaron and freshman Judd Hicks at receiver. The running back position is where the Tornadoes are going to have the most inexperience, Green said. Seniors Drian Jenkins, Jon Norman and Corey Robinson are vying for playing time, as is junior Jameaze McNeal. A couple of younger players will even factor into the equation. Green said sophomore Xavian Jenkins is going to be an asset for us in the future, while freshman Aundre Carter will be called upon quite a bit this year. You dont really like to throw a freshman into the fire like we have done him up to this point, Green said, but there are going to be some things that we have to ask of him from here on out. When it comes to the defensive side of the ball, Green sees his defensive line as a strength. He said there was a lot of competition and starters had yet to be named, but Reed, a returning lineman from last season, has been impressive. Green said Hernandez has been doing a good job, as has senior John Spencer, who has mainly played offensive line in the past. Offensive lineman Shannahan is also playing well on the defensive side of the ball. We hope to not have to start him both ways, Green said, but hes definitely a guy who can come in there and play for us. The secondary shows a lot of promise with players such as Hankerson and Oody. Green said Hankerson is the kind of cornerback he likes in that hes long and lean. As long as he continues to develop, hell be a standout cornerback by his senior year, Green said.

4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 Letters email@example.com Dear Editor: Compassion!? This is the new catchword of the Left. Anyone who is pleased by or ignores the fact that our southern border no longer actually exists uses this recently appropriated term to explain how we, the people, should be responding to the plight of children awash in a new land. These youngsters have no resources, speak the wrong language, and are minimally educated. They have nothing. So, obviously, any true American must hold out a helping hand. Its like its in our DNA. Among those calling for compassion-other than our current, lawless administration and its minions-are many Christian pastors, clergy, church leaders, and laymen, which is to be expected. Anyone at all familiar with Christianity knows fall well that when someone is in need, its our duty to step up and help. After all. Proverbs 28 says, He who gives to the poor suffers no want, but he who ignores them gets many a curse Im all in for that HOWEVER! What we are seeing here is simply Selective Compassion. A major fuss is being made over people who are being brought into the country, under the guise of another new catch phrase, unaccompanied minor. But what is the truth? First of all, how many of these individuals are really minors? There is evidence that many, if not most, of them are not. Why isnt it clear, one way or the other? Because this transparent administration is hiding these people from view. Complete video coverage of what is going on would clearly reveal the accuracy of unaccompanied minor, but we dont have that. And then theres the term unaccompanied. Any minor traveling alone through Mexico so as to enter this country without permission is not unaccompanied; he is abandoned. (If I sent my ten year old grandchild to play all day at the park while I went to work, would the word unaccompanied be a part of the ensuing police report? I dont think so.) This entire phony scenario is just another example of the hypocrisy that runs rampant in this country. If we truly have compassion for those in need, then where were these supporters of this debacle when it was learned that our veterans Compassion or hypocrisy?

Dear Editor: Following the Lehman banking debacle of 2008, the government sponsored bailout of the banking sector to boost the economy created an illusion of recovery. Wall Street banks benefited from the bailouts by using special privileges with the Federal Reserve to borrow cheaply to fund speculation using their easy access to money. Yet savers that need interest income to survive are punished by the low interest rates they receive. The U.S. economy is crashing as major retail chains close thousands of stores because 70 percent of the economy is consumer driven. The decline in consumer spending is due to the permanent loss of jobs resulting from the collapse of the housing bubble with many mortgages still underwater. Underemployment is now the norm as full-time white collar job opportunities never fully recovered after the recession. We are witnessing the impact of student loan debt on the economy as college graduates cannot find jobs, even as many manufacturing jobs requiring skills remain unfilled. Big government progressives and mainstream media attempt to manipulate and control people when we know that capitalism and true freedom, not big government, will solve our problems. The elites smile as they sit back and wait to swoop in to complete their job to take the American Dream from an angry and desperate citizenry. We are a Christian nation with Judeo roots and God has a solution for our economic dilemma. The Jubilee law described in Leviticus 25 provides a national cancellation of private debts every 50 years. On August 22, 2011 economist Stephen Roach went a step further calling for Wail Street to support a Debt Jubilee to forgive excess debt for borrowers. This will ensure that no one would ever become forever trapped in debt and poverty. Providing immediate and future Jubilee debt relief for mortgage, student loan, and credit card debt will be a start to save our nation. Yours truly, Robert A. Dahlquist Orange, California In support of Debt Jubilee Dear Editor: There are many, many ideas and opinions out there that tend to make one scratch ones head in complete bewilderment. For example, there are those who preach and spend gobs of moneylike that Bloomberg guyto take away our God-given right to self-protection, yet these same people are being escorted by gun-toting bodyguards. (Am I missing something here?) Then we have scores of individuals, many from the welleducated world of Hollywood, who support a terrorist group called Hamas, whose main goal in life is to eradicate the country of Israel. (Huh?) And then theres the voting thing. Large numbers of citizens in this country do not bother to exercise their right, and privilege, to cast a ballot, even though the well-being, and even lives (abortion), of everyone in this country are at stake. (Are you kidding me?) And, even though there are many more similar Head Scratchers inundating our world, Ill mention only one more. Has anyone noticed that, in the United States of America, having a Bible in a government entity called a school is an absolute nono. (That must be one dangerous book, dont you think?) Yet, there is another government entity in which Bibles, and Bible-studying, are actually encouraged. These places are called prisons. (Scratch, scratch!) I just wonder, if those Bibles were to find their way back into the schools, would there be as much need for them to be used in our corrections systems? (Hmmmmm!) Leonard C. Young Keystone Heights Reader left scratching his head Dear Editor: It was not my intention to cause Frank the Baker illhealth, hypertension-wise, with my letters attempting to set the record straight on Israel/ Palestine. As a man of scripture, as he obviously is, I am sure he is familiar with John 8:32 where Jesus informs us that ...the truth shall set you free. I therefore reiterate that what he and too many others think is the truth about that conflict is only the misleading (to put it mildly) version by the Israeli/ US propaganda media, i.e., that Palestine broke the ceasefires; that they are using civilians as human shields; that Israel is only protecting itself when it drops millions of tons of explosives on the country it is occupying (in anticipation of the much repeated canard that Israeli occupation of Palestine ended in 2006---actually it was only de jure, not de facto) killing close to 2000 civilians, 30-percent of which are children; that casualty figures of about 700-1(civilians) in Israels favor does not indicate, far from a battle for survival, but a massacre. Does the baker really believe that US corporate news media is biased against Israel, when all evidence gleaned from sources independent of the US MSM shows irrefutably that thats a blatant falsehood.? Furthermore, I resent the implication of being an antisemite who wouldnt have written my letter if it were the Jews who had the higher death toll. No, I am not bending the truth, as I am accused. That particular shoe is on the other foot. As Mark Twain said, It aint ...the truth shall set you free are being victimized by their own health care system? Were they screaming Compassion with anything near the same intensity? How much noise is being made by these same compassion-loving Americans over the 1300 unborn Americans who are being torn to pieces in their mothers wombs every day in this land of kindness? How about the millions of Americansmany in (he black community-whose work prospects are being seriously diminished by the presence of so many unaccompanied adults who have permanently trespassed onto our land? As with most things, compassion has its limits. When the Salvation Army solicits my community for funds to relieve those in need, Ill write a check. But I do not empty my bank account or go into debt to do so. And I know no one who does. There is no such thing as unlimited compassionnot if one already has duties and obligations. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has said, no country is bound to accept all those who wish to resettle there. By this principle the Church recognizes that most immigration is ultimately not something to celebrate. no country has the duty to receive so many immigrants that its social and economic life are jeopardized. All kinds of major issues are unresolved in this country, but attention is now being focused on children who have needs. This is simply a diversion produced by the same people who are actually creating our underlying immigration problem by simply refusing to enforce current immigration law and sealing our border. Compassionate Americans, especially Christians, are being used to accomplish the goals of unscrupulous, proven liars. Since Mr. Obama has invited these young victims to come here, then common sense should prevail. Let he and his supporters show some compassion here. Let them open their homes, their bank accounts, their refrigerators to these needy individuals. Lets have the bus drop off four or five of these younguns at Nancy Pelosis residence; surely the White House has a spare what we dont know that causes so much trouble; its what we know for a FACT, that just aint so!

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights High School returns some key pieces from its 2013 district championship team, such as leading rusher Anton Noble and one of its top tacklers, Sam Anderson, but inexperienced and younger players are going to have to step up and fill important roles if the Indians want to build upon last years success. Head coach Chuck Dickinson said there will probably be five to six players on each side of the ball with no previous varsity experience. Youre hoping that in those first two to three games, some of those guys who are younger kids are going to grow up and be ready to play come week four. Thats when we start our district play, Dickinson said. Were hoping they gain that experience from the (preseason) classic through the first three games. Hopefully, well have success and get some wins under our belt. One of the key players on offense is going to be, of course, Noble, a senior, who surpassed 1,000 yards even though he missed the final three games with an injury. Hes got great vision. He accelerates through the hole and runs hard, Dickinson said. As long as he does those things, I think hell be successful. Dickinson said Noble has good hands, so he is also a weapon on the outside as a receiver. More importantly, a proven back like Noble can help ease the burden on the teams new starting quarterback, who will most likely be junior Wyatt Harvin. Were hoping (Noble) can have the kind of year he had last year, Dickinson said. That takes a lot of pressure off our quarterback in throwing situations. Another key player on offense is senior wide receiver Brighton Gibbs, who led the team in receptions last year. Hes been in the situation before and been in pressure games, Dickinson said. You know hes going to know what to do. The thing with him is he starts defensively, too. Its one of those issues where weve got to do a good job of resting him at certain times. Dickinson will tell you year after year that the key to his allimportant run game and offense overall is the play of the line. This years line features seniors Joe Pace and Roy Williams, both of whom started every game last year. The experience level is a plus for them, Dickinson said. They know what to expect. Pace has moved from guard to center to fill in for the graduated Tate Williams. He seems to be transitioning fine. When we played the spring game, I thought Joe probably had the best game of our linemen, Dickinson said. The offensive line is a unit that concerns Dickinson, though it may be composed of four seniors and one sophomore. He said one of the guard positions could be occupied by players such as seniors Johnnie Fitts, Tye Stephenson and Matt West on a rotating basis, since each will also contribute on defense. Senior Garrett Davis, a firstyear player, could factor into the mix at offensive line, as well as sophomores Michael Dickinson, Noland Robinson and Matt White. Some of those are probably going to be starting, Dickinson said of the sophomores. Seniors Anderson and Kyler Teague bring experience to the running back and wide receiver positions, respectively, but both will also be counted on heavily on defense. Fullback is a question mark right now, as is tight end, which lost a key contributor in graduation in Micah Brown. Dickinson said junior Jacob White could be a factor at fullback, while sophomores Ryan Prieto and Tyler Ricketts could help out at tight end. Junior Steven Beverly looks to be in running back mix, as well. As mentioned earlier, Harvin will most likely step into the role of quarterback, taking over for graduate Blake Valenzuela, who started the last two years. I think Wyatts improving each day, Dickinson said. Weve just got to continue to (improve as a team). Defensively, the secondary is where Keystone has the most experience, with players such as Gibbs, sophomore Austin Hogg and junior Ray Trimble. Gibbs averaged four interceptions the last two seasons to be one of the teams leaders in that category. Hes making a transition for us this year, Dickinson said. He played cornerback mainly for us the last two years. Hes probably going to be our free safety this year, so its going to be a little bit of a change for him. Trimble is injured right now, but hopes are that he will be ready to go before the Indians start district play, Dickinson said. Hogg may be just a sophomore, but he saw plenty of action last year. We brought him up week three or four, Dickinson said. He played quit a bit last year. He probably has four or five games of starting under his belt. Teague has experience at corner and looks to be a contributor at the same position this year, Dickinson said. Noble also has some experience in the secondary. Anderson is a huge returner for the defense at linebacker. He was one of the top three tacklers last year and could possibly provide some play at free safety this year as well. Hes good at slipping blocks, Dickinson said of Anderson, a two-year starter. At linebacker, hes undersizedof course, were undersized like crazy on the defensive side of the ballbut he has a good knack of slipping blocks and getting under the blocker and getting in the hole to make a tackle. Anderson is returning from a devastating knee injury, but has been putting in a lot of work by himself outside of practices to get back onto the field. A lot of kids might not have come back from what happened to him last year, Dickinson said. Hes one of those kids who comes out here every day by himself and probably works out an hour on the field, doing drills to strengthen his leg. Fitts is a key returner on the defensive line. Dickinson said Fitts is not real big, but hes strong and brings significant experience to the field. White gained some experience last year as well, but younger, inexperienced players will make up most of the rest of the defense. For us right now, the up-front six is probably where were least experienced, Dickinson said.

Obviously, Warners getting a really good baseball playeran outstanding baseball player but also getting an even better person, Mattox said. Starling said he had the opportunity to participate in a team workout. He felt good afterward as he and Warner coach Jeff Sikes talked one on one. Now, Starling is looking to make his mark at the school as a pitcher, though he said he could also see some time in the outfield. Im going to work on giving it all Ive got and seeing where it goes from there, Starling said. Mattox said Starling, whose 2.02 ERA was second-lowest on the team this past season, has a good fastball with movement and is basically a three-pitch pitcher, with a split changeup as his go-to pitch. The split is a really good pitch for him, Mattox said. Mattox said Starling will really make a jump in performance as his breaking ball improves. As for possibly playing in the outfield, Mattox said Starling is a defender who gets a good jump on the ball and, of course, has a strong arm. Mattox added that Starling really came on as a batter during his senior year at KHHS. His regular-season batting average of .319 was fourth on the team. He could very well be a twoway player for them, Mattox said. Starling said he expects itll be quite a different game than what hes used to as he transitions from high school to college. I might have some nerves, Starling said. Hopefully, theyll go away. Mattox has no doubt it will be a successful transition for Starling. He said Starling comes from a good family and has a good foundation upon which to build. Theres no doubt hell meet that challenge and do well down there, Mattox said. At Warner University, Starling will be part of a National Association of Inercollegiate Athletics program that has qualified for the regionals eight times in the last 14 years, playing for a regional championship five times during that span. Head coach Sikes is entering his 32 nd year at the school and has 939 career wins. Its an opportunity Starling is grateful for. I want to thank Jesus Christ for everything he has done in my life, and I also want to thank my parents (Robert and Tracie Starling) and my family for everything they have done, Starling said. I have three years to prove myself. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Samantha Cook, a 2013 Bradford High School graduate, turned a standout year at Defiance College in Ohio to a chance to move up from the Division III level to Division I and now compete at Georgia Southern University. Cook received a scholarship offer from Georgia Southern after a freshman year at Defiance that included winning the shot put at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Indoor Championships and placing second in the shot put and discus at the HCAC Outdoor Championships. I feel like its well-deserved, Cook said. I worked real hard for this. Cooks shot put total at the HCAC Indoor Championships set a new conference record at 12.39 meters. She eventually earned second-team allconference honors. I didnt think it would happen my freshman year, Cook said of setting a record. I thought itd take me until my senior year. Then, when it actually happened, my coach was telling me, Oh, by the way, you have a record. I had to check on the Internet to make sure that was right. Cook said she heard someone say that one in 100 studentathletes get the chance to move up from a Division III school to a Division I school. However, she said she began hearing from Georgia Southern after her performance at her conferences indoor championships. They were like, Hey, we want you here. We need a shot putter. They said they would offer me something, Cook said. I went there during spring break. Thats when I finally realized, Well, this is where I need to be instead of Ohio. Following an Aug. 14 signing ceremony at the Union County Sheriffs Office, however, Cook said she was thankful to receive a scholarship to Defiance coming out of high school. She wouldnt have been ready to attend a bigger school right away, she said, adding that it helped her to start out taking little steps. Going to Ohio kind of opened my eyes about college and got me ready to go on to something bigger, Cook said. Cook, though, looks forward to the weather in Georgia. The weather is so much better, she said. That winter (in Ohio) was awful. Cook had several highlights at Defiance, including placing second in the shot put and discus at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Outdoor Championships and being part of the first-ever Defiance team to win the womens HCAC Indoor Championships. Defiance was seeded third at the indoor championships, but won the title by more than 100 points. When we first found out we won, we went kind of crazy, Cook said. It was a good moment. I actually forgot that seniors go to get the award, not freshmen, so I actually walked up there and ruined the moment, but I was really excited about it, so I couldnt help myself. One of her favorite moments also included the chance to compete in the hammer throw, an event thats not part of high school competition. That was my favorite moment, trying things I didnt get to do in high school, Cook said. It was awesome. Cook said she likes the education program Georgia Southern offers. She plans to go into teaching at the elementaryschool level. Plus, the school also has a club weightlifting program, which is a definite appeal. Cook made quite a mark as a weightlifter in high school, winning two straight state championships. I feel like if (weightlifting) wasnt there, Id definitely miss it just because its part of my life, Cook said. Its always been part of my life. Cook, who also attended Union County schools, earned thirdand seventh-place finishes at state in weightlifting as a Union County High School student. UCHS weightlifting coach Bryan Griffis attended the Aug. 14 signing and spoke highly of Cook, mentioning not just her growth as a weightlifter and a person, but the fact that she is up front about her Christian faith. Ive seen her grow up from a little girl. Now, shes become a lady, Griffis said, adding, Im proud of the person shes become and the way Gods in her life. Making the jump from competing in track and field at the Division III level to Division I is a little intimidating, but Cook believes it will be a successful move. She is looking forward to making her mark against that level of competition. I feel its going to be more challenging, Cook said, but eventually itll be a lot better. Whatever happens happens. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 D e p o s i t s a r e f e d e r a l l y i n s u r e d b y t h e N C U A a U S G o v e r n m e n t A g e n c y f o r u p t o $ 2 5 0 0 0 0 A n n u a l P e r c e n t a g e Y i e l d ( A P Y ) e f f e c t i v e 7 / 3 0 / 2 0 1 4 a n d s u b j e c t t o c h a n g e a t a n y t i m e 2 5 m o n t h A P R i s 1 5 0 % 3 6 0 p e n a l t y d a y s O f f e r e x p i r e s 8 / 3 0 / 1 4 SR-230 E (2 miles east of US-301)B anquet Hall Driving Range Check out our web pagewww .starkegolf.com M emberships Available E xcellent Driving RangeP ro Shop Gift CertificatesG olf Lessons by AppointmentP rofessionally Run Tournaments H ome of the Strawberry Invitational Li ke us on facebook Want to reach people?

on offense and will be the quarterback of the secondary at strong safety. Hes kind of going to be our guy who helps us get lined up back there and makes sure guys understand the coverage and what the coverage is, Green said. Drian Jenkins and Xavian Jenkins are a couple of other players to keep an eye on the secondary, Green said, adding that hes also excited about newcomer Larry Highsmith, a sophomore who hasnt played football in four years. At linebacker, you have Jeffers, whom Green called the heart and soul of the defense. Were definitely going to look for him to be a senior leader for us, Green said. Hes got the most playing-time experience as far as our defense goes. Hes a versatile guy. He plays well in coverage because of his length. Were also going to bring him coming off the outside to rush the quarterback. Hes going to have to play multiple spots for our defense. Green said McNeal has been doing a good job at linebacker, as has Carter and Orton, who just moved to the position Aug. 8. Luke will probably also see playing time at linebacker. Again, as with quite a few positions, linebackers are learning a different style of play. Were going to be doing a lot more moving around with our linebackers and bringing guys on blitzes inside and guys coming off the edges, Green said. Were moving those guys around to put them in the best possible position to help our defense and try to create some confusion for the (opponents) offensive lines. On special teams, freshmen Hicks, Zion Barber, Trace Barber and Dakota Mathews have been battling for placekicking duties, while Luke and Zion Barber have been working at punter. Green said he expects District 4-4A to be a battle. The Villages won six games last year and will be improved, Green said. He also expects Umatilla and Interlachen to improve from their four-win and one-win seasons, respectively. Then, theres Keystone Heights, which defeated Bradford by one point last season to claim the district crown. I know were always going to have a battle with Keystone Heights, Green said. Thats a big rivalry. Coach (Chuck) Dickinson does a great job there. The non-district schedule is certainly not easy, with games against Class 5A teams Baker County, Eastside, Palatka, Suwannee and Wakulla, as well as fellow Class 4A team Fort White, which has been to the playoffs the past four years. It wont be an easy path leading up to the Tornadoes first district game, but Green said those early games against Buchholz, Suwannee, Baker County and Fort White will be when coaches get the chance to evaluate their players and see where everyone fits in best in order to compete in the district and try to earn a playoff berth. There are going to be kids moving around those first couple of weeks when evaluations are done, Green said. Hopefully, by the time we start district play, we have our guys in the positions we want them to finish out the season in. That way, they can kind of hone in and learn their position from that point on. The Tornadoes travel to Gainesville to play Buchholz at Citizens Field in a kickoff classic on Thursday, Aug. 21, at 7 p.m. Bradford opens the regular season at home on Friday, Aug. 29, against Suwannee at 7:30 p.m. (secondary) and Dalton Hodge (linebacker), and juniors Beverly (secondary), Chris McLean (defensive line) and Logan Wilson (defensive line). Keystone does have experience on special teams with Noble handling the punting duties and senior J.J. Schofield handling kicking duties. Schofield was almost perfect on extra-point attempts last year and looks to step into the role of kickoff duties as well, which were handled by Michael Carroll, who has since graduated. Were hoping he can get it into the end zone for us and make the (opponent) start at the 20, Dickinson said. Only one team besides Keystone had five wins or more in District 4-4A, but Dickinson expects a tough battle. Dickinson said he expects Umatilla to be vastly improved from its fourwin season as it played so many young players last year. He admitted he doesnt know what to expect out of Interlachen, a one-win team, but he does expect the Villages, which won six games last year, to provide a tough test. Theyre well-coached, Dickinson said. They dont usually beat themselves. Theyre not going to turn the ball over generally. Bradford won just three games last year, but lost to Keystone by only one point in a game that decided the district championship. Theres a little uncertainty about Bradford, which has a new coach in Corey Green, but Dickinson said, For us, its a rival game. Thats always a game, I guess, where if you go over the last six years, probably three or four of the games have been decided by a point or two. With some inexperience and a lack of depth at quite a few positions, a return to the postseason could depend on how many players the Indians can keep on the field. I think the key againlike every yearat our level is not having injuries, Dickinson said. Keystone hosts Ridgeview in a preseason classic on Friday, Aug. 22, at 7 p.m. The Indians travel to Callahan to play West Nassau on Friday, Aug. 29, at 7:30 p.m. to open the season in earnest. Their first home game follows on Friday, Sept. 5, against Wildwood at 7:30 p.m. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 $299 lb $249 lb PRICES AVAILABLE AUG 20 AUG 26 2 $5$899$1494 $5 Amazing quality.
