BC, Shands, ACORN partner for more health care dollars BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Shands hopes to make more out of the countys contribution to indigent medical care and use it for further improvements at the hospital. Drew Emery, CEO of Shands Starke Regional Medical Center, told the county commission Oct. 6 about a unique funding opportunity through the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. Funding available to hospitals would have normally been divvied up by this time, he said, but the state and federal governments have kicked in more money creating this new opportunity, which also rests on a wiliness for county governments to support their local hospitals. Emery explained that state would match intergovernmental transfers from the county up to 247 percent. So for every dollar thats sent up on behalf of the hospital, $2.47 could potentially come back, he said. Exactly how much will be determined by the state. ACORN (the Alachua County Organization for Rural Needs) enters the picture because of the county commissions annual $35,000 contribution to the center and is mission to provide medical and dental care to the poor. Emery proposed allowing Shands to make that contribution to ACORN so the countys contribution could be freed up and sent to the state on Shands behalf with the hope that the countys support of the hospital would be matched by those available funds. We would use those monies for general operations, to purchase equipment and to take better care of the citizens of Bradford County. Shands has been expanding its services and working to raise its profile, announcing a coveted accreditation in cardiovascular care a few weeks ago. Just this year weve gotten a new CT scanner, some new OR equipment at the hospital, and this money would just allow us to continue to do great things, Emery said of the opportunity. ACORNs executive director, Candice King, was there to say she was fully on board.

My name is Danny Riddick. I am the son of Joe (former Bradford County commissioner for 12 years) and Ruth Riddick. I have lived in Bradford County since I was 12 years old and graduated from Bradford High School in 1977. I met my wife, Sheryl Thompson, at the Hampton Lake boat ramp 34 years ago and we have been married for 31 years and live on Hampton Lake. God has blessed us with two children, Clayton, 27, and Kelly, 25, our son-in-law John Pietkiewicz, and our first grandchild, Cole Pietkiewicz. I am a deacon at First Baptist Church of Starke and help teach a young adult Sunday School Class. Why did you want to become a county commissioner? To help people, listen to problems and try to come up with solutions. Try and make changes to improve Bradford County for the good of all people. To let people know their voice or one vote does make a difference and I do care. Push hard to get things done, because I really enjoy it. I like to meet new people, even if sometimes theyre a little upset. I try to make their problems my problems and look for every possible way to help. Even if it doesnt work out, I dont forget about it or stop trying to find a solution. Why should people vote for you? Because of results! Look around at what has been accomplished in the last four years, but not by my wisdom, but by Gods blessing (and guidance): repairs to the Hampton Lake and Santa Fe Lake boat ramps. a new brush truck and tanker for the Theressa Volunteer Fire Department. an upgraded brush truck and tanker for the Hampton Volunteer Fire Department. two fire hydrants in the Keystone Golf and Country Club. paved approximately six miles of dirt roads with millings, one road by teaming up with Clay County for half. identified five roads that had been marked private incorrectly and are now being county maintained. teamed up with Clay County for sidewalks on 21 from Orchid Road to 1st United Methodist Church. Finished sidewalks on 21B. sidewalks on Hampton Lake under construction. Rails to Trails under construction around backside of landfill from Southeast 57 th Street to S.R. 100. Im available 24/7 like many of my constituents already know to anyone in need. What sets you apart from your opponent? Four years of serving the people of Bradford County. From day one I went to work. First going to school and becoming a certified county commissioner. Contacts. I serve as the vice chair of the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council where I ask advice from 11 other county commissioners, FDOT, Suwannee River Water Management, St. Johns River Water Management.

Randy Starling Erica Reddish Helen Hersey Danny Riddick Starke wins grant to map assets BY TRACY LEE TATE Telegraph Staff Writer The city of Starke has been awarded a $40,000 Competitive Florida Partnership program grant from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) to be used for economic asset mapping and to arrive at an economic development strategy, which will bring more jobs to the area. The city worked closely with Pam Whittle at the North Florida Regional Chamber of Commerce and Joan Suchorski, vice president for development, grants and projects at Santa Fe College in creating the grant application. The application requested assistance in the development of an inventory of community assets and resource mapping, in addition to funds to pay a consultant to help develop a strategy for economic development. SFCs main involvement was in preparing the grant application in the short time period between the discovery of the grant and the deadline for application. The grant required application by a governmental agency, so Whittle went first to the Bradford County Commission. The county elected not to apply due to the short time available to get the grant application prepared, Whittle said. The city put the matter on their agenda as an emergency item and agreed to try, so City Clerk Ricky Thompson and I started gathering the information that was needed for the application at the direction of Joan Suchorski. We have been looking for resources for the city and county and have been submitting grant applications for federal technical assistance, but this grant is the best fit for the types of funding the city and county need, Suchorski said. The city of Newberry got one of these grants on the last cycle and it was of great benefit to them. We feel the result will be the same here. According to Suchorski, the fact that there was already preliminary work done, such as the SFC project Envision Bradford 2023 and meetings of community leaders and See VOTE, 2A See MANAGER, 3A See HEALTH, 7A See GRANT, 9A

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor If youre looking forward to seeing your doctor and lighting up after Election Day, Bradford Countys sheriff may already be looking to kill your buzz. Florida voters could approve Amendment 2 next month and expand the availability of medical marijuana, but Sheriff Gordon Smith is afraid those looking to make a profit will take advantage. During a strategic session in September, Sheriff Gordon Smith encouraged the commission to think about limiting the number of marijuana dispensaries allowed in the city limits. He said the city could tie the number of available permits to the citys population, just as it did with Internet cafs. We dont want pot shops on every corner, he said. Trust me, theres a lot of people out there that are looking to make revenue from it, including in this county. Smith said hes been collecting ordinances considered in other cities and counties as a template for what is needed here. I think its very critical that the city and the county work together, he said, saying he wants the rules inside and outside of the city to be consistent. Smith said he had friends on both sides of the issue. If its medically necessary, Im all for it, but I dont want one on every corner, he said, going on to criticize language that he believes will make marijuana available for more than strictly medical purposes and free those prescribing and selling it from liability. Thats why he said he opposes the amendment. If youre going to do that, you might as well legalize it and put some rules in place, he said. The warning may have been premature. The success of the amendment, which was once taken for granted, is now in question. Sixty percent of voters must vote in favor of the amendment, and while polls once placed approval at more than 80 percent, current polls show support has dropped significantly. What have you learned from the voters on the campaign trail? A lot of people dont read the Telegraph or know what a county commissioner does. People are concerned about taxes and how are theyre going to keep their homes when they retire. Homeowners insurance going up because ISO ratings are so high. And if their road will ever be paved or have millings put on it. Their ditches and culverts being cleaned out. Trash on side of roads need picked up. Right of ways need mowed so they can see to pull out on road. Would like to see motorists slow down. Want more police protection in the south end of the county. Help to clean up neighborhoods. Old cars removed. Abandoned house yards mowed and cleaned up. People want to be heard and helped. What are some of the biggest concerns of county government and how do you propose the commission address them? The board of county commissioners has to stay on top of spending so we dont have to raise taxes and keep Bradford County in good financial shape. (Also see previous answer.) We need to continue helping the volunteer fire departments any way we can and start looking for ways to have more manned fire departments. Our road department works hard every day. All five commissioners need to put our heads together and see how we can help improve and make their jobs easier and more efficient to improve everyones roads. How would you ensure county government is transparent? Open meetings + open records = open government. All meetings are open to the public and I encourage people to come get involved and rely on the Bradford Telegraph to print good, valuable information. Any records can be obtained from the Bradford Courthouse along with meeting minutes or tape recordings. Would you support raising the sales tax by half a cent to raise money for school infrastructure? Our schools are one of our most important resources. I hear all the time the struggles. I am, however, very concerned about keeping taxes low. So, two things would have to happen. First, public workshops on how the money would be spent and before I supported why do you need more? Lastly if this is something the school board really believes is necessary, why not put this on a ballot for the people to vote on? Aside from tax abatement, what can the county commission do to encourage economic growth and development? Bradford County is a great place to live, we all know that. Without infrastructure it is hard to grow. I know the board of county commissioners will do everything they can to bring smart growth to Bradford. One example, Toms BBQ. The county built the privacy fence in front of the landfill and set up meetings with Clay County Utility to provide the water for fire protection still at a cost of $55,000 for Toms. Toms BBQ hired over 20 people and plans are in the works for an ice cream shop, gas station and a putt putt golf course. How would you evaluate the manager and department heads who work for the board and hold them accountable? I feel the manager and department heads are doing a great job. Terry Kite, our independent auditor, said during his report for fiscal year 20122013, that Bradford County is in a strong financial position and good financial shape. There is always room for improvement; if youre not going forward youre backing up. Our manager and department heads listen, have good work ethics and want to do the best job possible for all the people in Bradford County. For example our EMS employee Misty Baker was voted number one paramedic in the state out of 60,000. Are you in favor of law enforcement consolidation between the sheriffs office and city police departments? This is a question of what is best for the people of Bradford County. I would need to sit down and talk with the city police chief and the Bradford County sheriff. They are both elected officials and know the needs of their constituents. This is another issue that is important enough to the future of our county that Id like to see placed on a ballot for the people to vote on. How would you support a better working relationship between the county and Starke commissions? I have personally worked very hard on this issue. I work closely with a city representative on the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council and we speak often about issues which affect both the county and the city. Examples, I support helping all the people of Bradford County. Just like animal control is finally working good for everyone. I still feel building and aoning would better serve the people and save money in one location. I would like to see both boards put our heads together to benefit all people. Would you support broadcasting and archiving county commission meetings online? The more people know whats going on in the county the better. I like the feedback. As far as support, how much is it going to cost the county and how many people will it benefit? What is your personal vision for Bradford County? I would like to see more roads paved, sidewalks, a splash park in Starke, more playground equipment for the children. Learn more about grant opportunities for these projects and infrastructure. Id like to see downtown Starke a place that comes alive with people wanting to eat, shop, have some ice cream, go to the movies and car shows. I would like Bradford County to be known for having great schools and athletic programs to help students reach their academic to athletic goals from. A safe place to live and most important a God-fearing county where people know the leaders are seeking Gods wisdom and guidance. Helen Hersey Provide a brief biography of yourself.

More than 30 kids learned about things like measuring angles and adjusting angles using a protractor (trajectory) and working as a team to get a project done. The young scientists were divided up into five teams: the Gators, the Electrical Volts, Zoe, the Crushers and Sparky. 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent Debbie Nistler directed the experiment and offered advice to the five teams about rocket construction. All good experiments must have a purpose, so the students were given a scenario of a hurricane supply drop to a Pacific island where nothing but a rocket could reach after the storm. The rockets were to be used as food transportation devices to get a cargo of raisins to a hula hoop (the island) about 20 feet away. Each team constructed their rocket then moved outside to first test fire it. Rockets were fired with a release of compressed air provided by the rapid collapse of a two-liter soft drink bottle, produced by one of the rocket crew jumping on it. After the tests, they were allowed to make any changes they thought would make their rocket better, then the rockets were fired again with their payload attached. The teams were to be ranked by the success in reaching the island, or getting the closest to doing so. Unfortunately, the Crushers were the only ones to make it to the island with their payload, so they were the undisputed champions. This experiment used math in a practical way and helped teach and reinforce the value of working as a team, Nistler said. We were also trying to teach the value of experimentation try something, if it works keep it, if it doesnt try something else. to show Destiny Green how they are attached, while Abbie Markham and Matthew Moore watch. Michuad and Matthew Stafford watch the process. Matthew Moore, Abbie Markham (left) and Savannah Andrews (right) watch as Skyelar Commissioners seem to know the advertised salary range $45,000 to $60,000 is low compared to manager positions in similar cities, but they also wanted the city clerk to make sure the applicants know what that range is in case that alone is reason for the applicants to turn down the position. Money is definitely a factor for one candidate, but not in terms of salary. McMillian has entered the citys DROP program and was told if she was offered the city manager position, which is a contract job, she would have to resign from her position in finance and would lose the money set aside in her DROP account. McMillian is reportedly not interested in resigning her current position but sent word to the commission she would still like to be interviewed for the manager job. Commissioners didnt understand the request, thinking it might be a waste of time to interview someone who cannot accept the post, but they will allow McMillian to explain her intentions in writing. Another of the five shortlisted candidates will be interviewed, although two commissioners didnt see the point. Woods and Commissioner Tommy Chastain both said they had no interest in interviewing Akhimie after learning he had been dismissed from prior positions. Commissioner Carolyn Spooner, however, felt press reports werent enough to go on. Others were wary but interested enough by his credentials to speak to him. Woods gave an opportunity for other eliminated applications to be considered, but the commission was satisfied with the selections. The commission will tentatively be conducting in-person interviews of those candidates on Tuesday, Oct. 28, beginning at 6 p.m. A three-hour block has been scheduled. The interviews are open to the public. Attorney apps are in The city commission also decided to advertise for qualifications from attorneys, and the deadline was Oct. 13. Starke attorney Paul Sanders has served the city for a year and although his contract is up, he has agreed to continue working through the selection process.

Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 5A Y Across the Garden Fence Z Across the Garden Fence is a column sponsored by the Bradford County Extension Service. Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Mary Bridgman at jtd@ ufl.edu. We have had quite a few rainy days lately, and this can contribute to problems in your landscape plants. An oak-leaved hydrangea that I set out earlier this year had been thriving. Recently, I noticed all the leaves on one of its branches, from the tip to the ground, had wilted. The other branches werent affected. A master gardener friend diagnosed phytophthora root rot and suggested I remove the affected limb. Phytophthora is caused by fungus and primarily affects plants grown in containers with poor drainage. My plant is growing directly beneath the eaves of our house, which are guttered, so the rain hasnt been pouring onto it. However, the soil apparently hasnt been able to dry out fast enough to keep the fungus from taking hold. Ive also noticed the ripening fruit on my calamondin tree are showing signs of rot on their blossom end. Like the phytophthora afflicting my hydrangea, this problem can be caused by too much water. Unfortunately, with landscape plants, there isnt much you can do to keep the raindrops from falling. Im trying to harvest my fruit just as it begins to turn orange, before rot can set in. The unripe fruit already has the nice, tart flavor I enjoy in my iced tea, and it keeps a little longer after harvest than the ripe fruit. One garden problem I recently solved had a completely different solution nothing to do with excessive rain. I have a very nice potted sago palm, which I kept on my back deck. I noticed that the centers of its fronds were yellowing, a condition which frequently indicates a nutritional deficiency. I applied a special palm fertilizer as well as some liquid iron. The plant seemed to improve for a while, and then yellowed again. I repeated the cycle with some improvement, wondering if bleach from a recent pressure washing of our house was responsible. The metal roof had been included in the job, and I guessed that some of the cleanser might have dried onto the roof, only to wash off onto the palm in the rain. I decided to relocate the plant to my driveway. Before I moved the palm, I touched the soil to see whether it was dry, and it was. Despite the regular rain wed been having, the potbound plant couldnt retain enough moisture to meet its needs. I put the palm in a shady spot and watered it well, adding a dose of palm fertilizer. Im happy to report that my sago has perked up. The fronds are green and glossy. In this case, I think it was a combination of lack of water and harsh sun that did the damage. Fortunately, it was reversible! Mary W.

While visiting Brooker last school year, U.S. Navy Commander Chris Commander Flaherty participated in a Skype session talking to his hometown school of Cleveland Elementary in Cleveland, New York. Brookers fourth-grade teacher, Koren Boukari, said Public speaking is a learned and practiced skill. Starting students in a casual and fun setting, like Skyping with other students, is an easy and non-threatening way to start public speaking skills. Brooker Principal Debbie Parmenter is very excited about the next phase of this endeavor. Students are going to begin a pen pal letter writing relationship between the two classes. This is a great opportunity for us to enhance our students writing skills in a manner that should be fun for the class. Students will learn about the likes and dislikes of children who are geographically far away and how they are similar or dissimilar to their own preferences, Parementers said. There is just so much we can do with an opportunity like this, all the while we are interspersing lots of curriculum and academia throughout it. We are very appreciative to Commander Flaherty and PTO President Tricia Cook for arranging this for our schools. of the room and asks the New York students what they do for fun.

Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 Bradford County Telegraph 7A Coming in October rfntbtf rftfntnt tft Get the coopttt btfnfr Center keeping seniors active BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph The Bradford County Senior Center is well into its third year of operation, offering lots of activities for people ages 50 and over. The center was built in late 2011 entirely with grant funds provided by Elder Options, a Gainesville based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources for the aging in mid-Florida. The center opened in February 2012. It moved temporarily to the Agricultural Extension Office in November 2012 to allow county emergency medical services to use the building while their usual quarters were being cleared of mold. The center came home in July 2013 and has been in residence there ever since. Staffing the center started using volunteers, but it quickly became apparent to county officials that, to get the most benefit to the community from the center, paid staff would be required. Current administrative assistant Diane Gaskins was working at the Bradford County Public Library when, in 2013, she was asked if she would like to divide her time between the library and the senior center. She said she jumped at the chance. She continued on a part time basis through that year, and then became the centers first and only full-time employee in 2014. When it first opened the center only offered a few programs, such as line dancing, quilting and special classes presented by organizations such as the master gardeners, the AARP and SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs for Elders). The first month only 47 seniors attended, but the numbers started increasing, as did the centers offerings, with participation exceeding 100 in August (135) and 200 in September (226). New programs included bingo, yoga/tai chi, art, cards, crochet and computer skills. Numbers decreased when the center made its temporary move in November 2012 and stayed at less than 100 per month until activities moved back to the center building. Since then the numbers have been climbing, with over 1,700 seniors served in 2013 (1,242 of those attending after the center returned to its home in July of 2013. Attendance has skyrocketed in 2014, with 3,279 seniors served through August and four months left to go. Program offerings have expanded as well to include gardening (some months), caregiver workshops, woodcarving and Zumba, an aerobic dance exercise performed to international music. In addition to planned classes and activities, the center has a large collection of jigsaw puzzles, a small library and a television. Seniors are welcome to come anytime to enjoy these amenities or just to socialize. The cost of the center to the county is quite low when the number of people served is considered. In its first year of operation the center cost $22,082 to operate, or about $18.47 per senior served. In 2013 the cost was $31,750, reflecting the addition of Gaskins on a part-time basis, increasing the cost per senior to $18.55. The amount budgeted for center operation in 2014 is $43,507, reflecting an increase in salary with Gaskins becoming full-time and increases in operations costs such as utilities. So far this year the center has served 3,279 seniors, with four months left to go in the year. But even if operations ceased right now, the cost per person would only be $13.27. Overall, attendance is higher during the colder months, with the most popular programs being computer instruction, woodcarving and the exercise oriented classes. Special classes, such as easy canning, diabetic workshops, and programs aimed at keeping seniors safe and well informed are very popular. Diane Gaskins said she is proud of the diversity of the programs offered, but is still always looking for new offerings. All of our classes or programs are run by volunteers, Gaskins said. We are always looking for new and interesting things to do here. Some of the classes make community service projects, like hats and mittens for school children, or blankets for the humane society. Our people are engaged and involved with life and their community and we want to help keep them that way. Diane Gaskins runs the show at the Bradford County Senior Center, keeping things running smoothly every day. Here she is seen with a quilt depicting the county, made by the centers Sunshine Quilters group. The woodcarvers meet every Wednesday morning and are a very popular group. carving instructor Jeff Morgan all concentrate on their individual projects, with a little conversation on the side. The crochet and knitting group meets once a week to compare projects, help each other with problems and work on community service projects as a group. Here, Gail Thomas, Jo Ann Eaves and Teresa Morgan put their heads together locating a problem in a project pattern. Former Bradford County mallet and chisel to carve a realistic eagle from wood. I appreciate this opportunity to partner even more with Shands at Starke. There is a lot of work to be done, I think, in our safety net, she said. That can be done by working more collaboratively, she said. I think this is a marvelous idea. King expressed he appreciation for the county commissions ongoing support, which approved of Emerys proposal. She also said ACORN is accepting new patients and is in the process of expanding its hours to Thursday nights. Earlier this year, ACORN announced it was one of four organizations serving low-income residents who would be sharing a federal grant. In ACORNs case, the goal was to restore mental health services.

8A Bradford County Telegraph Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 place to live. What are some of the biggest concerns of county government and how do you propose the commission address them? Growth. Market Bradford County and work with Bradford County Development Authority. How would you ensure county government is transparent? Openness (open government). Technology is a tool that is available. Would you support raising the sales tax by half a cent to raise money for school infrastructure? In favor if voters decide. Aside from tax abatement, what can the county commission do to encourage economic growth and development? 100 percent pro job. How would you evaluate the manager and department heads who work for the board and hold them accountable? Their loyalty to citizens and providing quality service. Are you in favor of law enforcement consolidation between the sheriffs office and city police departments? Would be a consideration if feasible. How would you support a better working relationship between the county and Starke commissions? Workshops between county and city. Relationship is incredibly important. Would you support broadcasting and archiving county commission meetings online? Documentation of meetings are recorded and available through clerks office. What is your personal vision for Bradford County? Health, safety, welfare and employment opportunities for the citizens. District 2 County Kenny Thompson Provide a brief biography of yourself. My name is Kenny Thompson, and I am proud to be born and raised in Bradford County. I am blessed to be married to Nora Starling Thompson, and we have been blessed with two sons, Allen (Vanessa) and Kevin (Elizabeth) and four wonderful grandsons. After graduating from Bradford High in 1978, I began my working with Gilman Paper Company. After 20 years I retired and started my own business, Thompsons Garage. We operated for 17 years and recently expanded to include auto sales. Why do you want to be a county commissioner? Has it been a long-term ambition? Why now? I have considered running run for County Commissioner for 10 years and I think it is time for a positive change. With the help of my family I will have all the time necessary to devote to the County Commission seat. Why should people vote for you? I have experience in dealing with public needs and have built and managed a successful family owned business through these tough economic times. This real world experience, more than qualifies me for this position. What sets you apart from your opponent? If running against an incumbent, why do you see a need for new leadership? How would your leadership differ from what has come before? What have you learned from the voters on the campaign trail? I have listened with the people about concerns about roads and proper drainage throughout the county. These things should be fixed for everyone, not just the neighborhoods of county commissioners. What are some of the biggest concerns of county government and how do you propose the commission address them? How would you ensure county government is transparent? The countys tentative millage has been set and will result in a tax increase for some residents. Are you in favor of this tax increase? In this day and time tax increases are never popular. The countys current mileage has already been set but for the future tax increase should have been the last resort to ensure funds. (Editors note: The county commission later voted to slightly lower the tax rate.) Are you supporting the referendum on tax abatement? I am supporting the referendum on tax abatement. How would you evaluate the manager and department heads who work for the board and hold them accountable? The county manager and department heads should be evaluated on job performance and knowledge of the position, and should be accountable to the board of county commissioners. Are you in favor of law enforcement consolidation between the sheriffs office and city police departments? As far as consolidation of the sheriffs office and city police departments, I do not think I have enough information to make a responsible decision. How would you support a better working relationship between the county and Starke commissions? Bradford County is a small county, and it is imperative that the county and cities work together for the betterment of the community. What more could the county be doing to encourage economic development? Would you support broadcasting and archiving county commission meetings online? I think broadcasting and archiving county commission meeting online is an excellent idea and feel more people would get involved by being able to view from their homes. What is your personal vision for Bradford County? My personal vision for the county is to see our county prosper and grow to provide jobs for our citizens and the younger generations that are following in our footsteps. District 5 Schools Erica Reddish Provide a brief biography of yourself. My name is Erica Mains Reddish. I was born and raised in Starke, Florida. I have two younger siblings, Lindsey Mains Atchley and Taylor Mains. I attended public school in Bradford County and graduated with honors in 1999. I married my husband Eric Reddish, also from Starke, in 2000. We have three children ages 15, 9 and 5, all of which attend public school in Bradford County. Pine Level Baptist is where I grew up in church until 2001, when we joined Madison Street Baptist Church, and have been active members ever since. I have worked for Shands Starke Regional Medical Center in Starke for nine years as an MRI technologist, and I also perform X-rays and CT scans. Why do you want to become a school board member? Has it been a long-term ambition? Becoming a school board member was something God laid on my heart several years ago. So my husband and I started praying about it, and felt like God was leading me in this direction. I enjoy my job at the hospital, and will continue to work there, but I feel led to take this next step. Being a mom of three children who are attending our local schools, I see some of the areas where we are struggling and I would like to be a part of the team and help bring solutions to the table. I have seen what has worked in our childrens lives and I want to be able to share those experiences from a school board level. I also want to emphasize the good things we have going on, the things that are getting overlooked. We have incredible teachers that go unrecognized and very intelligent students that arent getting the credit and recognition they deserve! I am passionate about making a difference! That is why it is my face youll see at your door, and my voice youll hear when you call. I feel as though even though it definitely involves support from my family, this is my candidacy. I am the one who will be doing this job, not my spouse, not my parents, and therefore I have been knocking on doors personally, not sending others out to lighten the load. My children have been angels to ride along with me and help guide me down our lists. And my husband has been wonderful by riding along to make sure I am safe and not getting overworked or over heated. Every free moment I have I am putting my all into this campaign even through the hot Florida heat and scary summer thunderstorms. Because it wont be my husband or my parents or my friends sitting in that seat, it will be me. I will be the one with the great responsibility to ensure our children get the proper education they deserve! So you can guarantee that anything you read is written by me, and any visit you get youll see my face standing at your door! There is a lot of ground to cover, and my goal has and will continue to be to try and reach every one of the voters in District 5. What sets you apart from your opponents? I feel as though being a mom of three children in the local school system sets me apart from the other candidates. I am in the trenches of homework and parent-teacher conferences and school activities and so on, just like every other parent with a child in school. Therefore I understand the frustrations of Edline complications, and breakdowns in communication with students and teachers and between teachers and parents. I honestly believe that the education your child receives is a direct result of the work and discipline your child puts into it. But as parents, we all know it takes pushing and prompting from the parents to ensure this success takes place! And I want to be able to help the parents in any way possible to guarantee their child gets the best quality education possible. I also believe that our school board needs a fresh voice, and it is time for my generation to step up and take an active role in our community. Whether it is at a school board level, or city and county positions, this is the time to make a difference in the community that gave so much to us! A candidate should be honest and genuine. If they have to depend on others to communicate in the media for them or make face-to-face visits on their behalf, it isnt a clear representation of them to their voters. Voters deserve to hear directly from each candidate and personally see them in order to address their concerns, because after the candidate is elected, it is the board member who has to make the decisions for our students and faculty of Bradford County, no one else. What have you learned from voters on the campaign trail? What are their primary concerns? The voters in my district are amazingly supportive and encouraging! I have met incredibly nice people who have encouraged me and shared their hearts with me regarding our students and schools. There are mixed emotions throughout our community. There are those who have felt like their voice has not been heard, no matter how loud they speak, and that as a result of that, their children are falling through the cracks. Yet, on the other hand, there are parents that feel as if their child is getting a great education, but no one is recognizing them for it! We have an incredible academic team, which no one hears about! We have students who are winning public speaking contest and being invited to Washington and no one hears about that! We have children who are earning their AA degree before they even graduate high school and no one hears about it! Bradford education gets a bad reputation; because no one is making sure the good news gets put out in the community! And last, but certainly not least, are the amazing and talented teachers in our county, who are struggling. Their morale is low and their frustrations are high. I know that one school board member cant change the world, but I do know this: If the school board and the teachers cant work well together, and the teachers feel as if they are not being heard, then we will continue to lose more and more excellent teachers to the surrounding counties. We MUST do something to retain the teachers we have and boost the morale so we as a county can move forward in a positive direction. What would you do about declining enrolment? The declining enrollment is a major concern of mine. Not only because our schools lose funding with every student that leaves our county, but because I know our schools can provide the same quality education that our surrounding counties do. We have excellent teachers, we have involved parents, and therefore we can make sure our children receive the best quality education. Positive results are what this community needs to see! And we are getting positive results every day. We just need to get the word to spread. We all know bad news travels fast and most likely snowballs along the way. So why not make an effort to let the community know the good things that are working well in our school systems and therefore encourage the parents of students who have withdrawn their students to reenroll them back in our local school system. How can the district attract and retain employees? It is a well-known fact that employees who feel appreciated and important are happier and therefore produce better quality work. One way we can retain our teachers and attract more teachers to our county is to make sure they know they are appreciated and that we recognize that they are doing an outstanding job. Teachers always give of themselves, their time, their money and their talents to give their students the best education possible. And even though we cannot guarantee them a raise and no one knows when that might be possible, we can make them feel appreciated and work on improving processes that they feel need more work and attention. Randy Starling Provide a brief biography of yourself. My name is Randy Starling, and Im asking you to partner with me in supporting Bradford County Schools. We can begin this work on Aug. 26 by electing me as your School Board Member for District 5. I graduated Bradford High in 1982. I received my bachelors degree in business administration from Palm Beach Atlantic University, a Christian school in South Florida. I received my masters degree in educational leadership from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. I have spent my whole working career in education. My first 23 years of work was with the Bradford County School District. I began my career as a teacher at the Bradford Career Tech Center under the leadership of Jim Ward and school superintendent Jim Duncan. From teacher, I became the coordinator of adult and community education. From there, I held the position of coordinator of vocational programs. i spent my last 4 years at the career tech center as the director. For the past three years, I have been the principal of the dropout recovery high school, MYcroSchool, in Gainesville. This uniquely focused high school targets students that have previously dropped out of high school and gives them a second chance at obtaining a standard state of Florida high school diploma. To date, my staff and I have seen 159 students graduate who otherwise would not have received their high school diplomas. Im experienced in budgeting and finance, curriculum and the new Florida Standards, the new teacher evaluation and incentive pay system, school grading and accountability, and school administrative leadership. I will be your voice on the school board, but I will also bring the experience needed to help effectively manage the Bradford County School District. Together, we can be an A district. Thank you for your support and vote. Why do you want to be a school board member? I would like to put my years of experience to work for the parents and students of Bradford County by continuing to improve the districts educational outcomes. In your opinion, what is a school board members role in local education? An elected person listens and is a voice for his constituents who voted him into office. This is a given standard for any elected official. Communication between the school system and parents is a vital part of school success and part of the board members responsibilities. Being a school board member, though, requires more than just communication. Florida Statute 1001.42 gives district school boards an extensive list of duties and responsibilities. In my opinion, school board members should play a role in all aspects of the educational process. This includes but not limited to: student progress, school operations, funding and budgeting, hiring and retention, school grade and accountability, evaluations and merit pay, and communications. What sets you apart from your opponent(s)? Both of my opponents are fine people. What sets me apart is my years of proven leadership and educational experience. In my 26 plus years, I have been a teacher, principal and county director. That leadership and experience will serve the board, parents and students of Bradford County well. How would your leadership differ from what has come before? Because of my ongoing career in education, I believe my leadership would be able to focus on the frequent changes, graduation requirements and more of the issues dealing with educational outcomes for our students. What have you learned from the voters on the campaign trail? What are their primary concerns? Voters in District 5 are concerned with education in Bradford County. Voters would like to see a dramatic improvement in the educational process and outcomes for our students in Bradford County. They would like a school district that is more customer service friendly. They would like to see more transparency and more frequent reporting to the public on the budgeting and finance process. They would also like to see less wavering when it comes to enforcing the code of conduct. What would you do about declining enrollment? The only way to turn the tide of declining enrollment is to improve the educational process and outcomes in Bradford County. With the number of choices that parents have today in educating their children, Bradford County has got to be competitive. We have to be able to offer a better product with superior customer service to parents and students. How can the district attract and retain employees? Research shows that when teachers and employees were surveyed about what constitutes job satisfaction for them, salary or financial compensation did not rank first. The top factor for job satisfaction was the climate and culture. In other words, employees valued the working environment, relationships with co-workers and supervisors, and recognition for the work done over their financial compensation. Bradford County struggles with being able to compete with neighboring districts in the area of salaries, but having a positive, encouraging and supportive work environment can be achieved with minor impact to the budget. What grade would you give Bradford schools, and why? I believe that Bradford County schools have started the forward momentum needed for improvement. While we are still waiting on the high school grade, two of our schools in the district are now A schools. However, we also have two D schools in our district. We made gains in many areas over the previous year and, I would like to keep this forward momentum going as your school board member. I believe that my experience and leadership, with your help, will move Bradford County schools closer to that goal.

Also in the citys favor was the tax abatement referendum, which passed in September, allowing the city to offer financial incentives to new business. The grant will provide a team to meet with the city to get the process started and a competitive analysis that will provide a profile of the areas economic strengths and weaknesses and opportunities. Included will be asset mapping and data to assist the community in identifying target businesses and industries, which would be a good fit for the area. Grant funding of $35,000 will be provided to allow the city to hire a contractor for services in creating and updating an economic development strategy and $5,000 in technical assistance grant funding which will detail the citys economic development story, including both successes and failures. These latter funds may also be used to support other local costs. This is a valuable grant, Whittle said. Asset mapping provides information to businesses considering the area and also allows us to see what we need to make us more attractive to businesses seeking a location. The city is ecstatic about getting this grant, especially on such short notice, Thompson said. The city is thankful to both the chamber and SFC in all their help in getting us to where we are now. I think everyone will see some good things coming out of this funding and it will be of great benefit to both the city and the surrounding area. GRANT Continued from 1A

BY TRACY LEE TATE Telegraph Staff Writer Retirement suits local resident Glory Jackson just fine, with time for travel and visiting her children but that doesnt mean she isnt still active in the community. Jackson was born in 1945, the only daughter of A.C. and Ollie Mae Cummings. She had one brother, William James Lee, who is now deceased. She remembers growing up when race was an issue on where she could go and what she could do. She attended RJE High School at the time the only high school she was allowed to attend as an African American. No matter where you lived in the county, if you were black the RJE was where you went, even if the bus cruised right by the white schools, Jackson remembered. Jackson said she could also remember other types of segregation in the community, but concedes that things in Bradford County were not nearly as bad as other places she saw on television during segregation and the early days of desegregation. I can remember two water fountains in city hall one for the white citizens and one for the black, Jackson remembered. I also can remember that African Americans were not allowed to sit at the counter at Mitchells Drug Store, so we just never went there. During the early days of desegregation, Jackson said she and some of her high school friends saw what was going on in other places around the country and decided that they should do something as well. We got together and the three of us went to the Garden Restaurant, walked in and sat down, Jackson said. All the kitchen help was black and it was them that gave us a hard time about being there asking us what we thought we were doing there. We did get served and ate our meal, but for the life of me I cant tell you what we had. After high school, Jackson attended what was then the Volusia County Career Center, a vocational school that allowed African American students. She studied cosmetology. After she passed her state licensing boards, she went to work for Bernice Morris at her beauty shop on Oak Street in the Reno section of Starke. I enjoyed my work, but after three years or so the chemicals started to have an adverse effect on me, Jackson said. Back then, the products for black women were much more harsh than what is out there today some of them even containing lye. I couldnt work with them anymore, so I went to work as a seamstress at a company in Starke called Big Dad Manufacturing. At that time, there were not a lot of options in employment for African American women either work in a factory or as a cook or maid. Jackson worked as a seamstress for about 10 years, first at Big Dads, then at Vogue Clothing and a company in Lake Butler. One day her mother said she had had enough. My mom said she was tired of seeing me get up early every morning and going to work with a rag tied around my head, Jackson said. She talked me into going back to school and then helped me to afford it. I went to Santa Fe Community College and got an AA degree in elementary education. Jackson started out working as a teacher aide in Bradford County, but eventually ended up as the secretary for the school district office, a position she retired from after 35 years. I enjoyed working with the kids, but I liked the secretarial position better, Jackson said. I felt like I was still helping the children, but in a broader and less specific way. Along the way, in October 1966, Jackson married Johnny Jackson Sr. The couple had two children Hope M. Jackson, now retired military and living in Texas, and Johnny Jackson Jr., who works as a family service and preplanning specialist in Maryland. Jackson stays active, doing both water aerobics with friends at the pool at the equestrian center across from Cecil Field in Jacksonville and participating in the Silver Sneakers program at a local gym. She also goes on cruises with friends at least once a year and has been to both the Western and Eastern Mediterranean, the Bahamas and Jamaica. This years cruise will revisit the Bahamas and add Cozumel to her list of exotic destinations. Jackson is very involved in her church New Covenant Baptist Ministries where she is church clerk, an adult Sunday school teacher and sings in the choir. She works 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 Retired Glory Jackson still busy in community The fourth annual Bradford County Relay for Life Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show is set to take place Nov. 1 at the downtown Starke square from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Eight awards will be presented for car and truck entries, while five will be presented to motorcycle entries.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High Schools football team was held to 53 yards and was never a serious threat to host Wakulla, which scored 21 first-quarter points en route to a 48-0 win on Oct. 10 in Crawfordville. The War Eagles (5-2) began eight drives on Bradfords side of the field, scoring touchdowns on all but one. Their average starting field position was the Bradford 43. It was at least a good start for Bradford (1-6), with its defense forcing Wakulla to turn the ball over on downs on the games opening series. Johnny Hernandez tackled Wakulla quarterback Feleipe Franks for no gain on first down, while Shawn Aaron tackled running back Demarcus Lindsey for a 1-yard loss on third-and-5. Toddreke Reed, Vince Brown and other defenders then combined to tackle Lindsey for a 5-yard gain on fourth-and-6. Disaster struck on the Bradford offenses second play from scrimmage as an errant shotgun snap resulted in a loss of 27 yards. That and an eventual short punt had the War Eagles starting their next drive on the Bradford 43. Wakulla needed just three plays to score, with Monterious Loggins 32-yard run setting up Franks 11-yard touchdown pass to Keith Gavin. Wakulla added two more touchdowns in the first quarter. Gavins 23-yard run set up Antonio Morris 14-yard scoring run to make it a 14-0 game. Two runs by Loggins for 33 yards and a 12-yard reception by Ethan Davis set up Loggins 1-yard scoring run to put the War Eagles up 21-0 with 34 seconds remaining in the quarter. The Tornadoes put together their best offensive series in the second quarter, marching from their own 20 to the Wakulla 22. Quarterback Jacob Luke carried the ball five times for 33 yards, while a pass-interference penalty on Wakulla on a third-and-7 play resulted in first down at the Wakulla 23. After a 1-yard run by Luke, though, Drian Jenkins was dropped for a 7-yard loss. Bradford eventually turned the ball over after an incomplete pass on fourth-and-14. A 32-yard punt return by Gavin set Wakulla up at the Bradford 34 with 38 seconds remaining in the first half. Franks threw a touchdown pass to Justin Davis from there for a 28-0 halftime lead. The Tornadoes did keep Wakulla from scoring early in the second half after fumbling the ball at their own 22. The War Eagles had first-and-goal at the 9-yard line, but a tackle for no gain by Jameaze McNeal and two incomplete passes by Franks helped force Wakulla to turn the ball over on downs at the 4. Bradford, though, would fumble the ball away again. This time, the War Eagles took advantage. They needed just one play to score when Gavin caught an 11-yard touchdown from Franks to make the score 35-0. A 17-yard sack forced the Tornadoes to punt from their own 3-yard line on the ensuing series. Wakulla, taking over at the Bradford 33 after a 30-yard punt, needed just three plays to score, with Morris scoring on an 11-yard run. Chris Beverly added the games last score, with his 21yard touchdown run capping a 45-yard drive. The War Eagles gained 222 yards on the ground, with Loggins rushing for 82 yards on eight carries. Bradford has an open date this Friday, Oct. 17, and will return to action Friday, Oct. 24, when it travels to play District 4-4A opponent Umatilla. providing the type of prompt efficient justice to which the conference aspires. When replacement Davis arrived, Moore helped him to adjust to the rhythm of the office quickly, allowing him to provide a seamless transition from the work done by the judges who had helped out by filling in. He came in the door, just a few days after being appointed by the governor, and he was ready to get to work, Moore said. He hit the ground running and has been a pleasure to work with since day one. Davis said in a recent interview that he felt Moore was an integral component in his efficiency at his job, and he was proud to place her in nomination for the honor. I appreciate both the nomination and the award, Moore said. It all came as quite a surprise to me the judge never told me he had nominated me, so I didnt find our about it until I was told I had won.

Diane Moore has been a judicial assistant to the office of the Bradford County judge for more than eight years. When she first came on board she was hired and trained by the late Judge Johnny Hobbs who became not only her boss, but her mentor and friend as well. Moore was devastated by the unexpected death of Hobbs, but knew she had a duty both to him and the county to see that things continued to run smoothly in the county court. When we heard about Judge Hobbs passing we were all in shock here at the courthouse, Moore said. He had appeared to be the picture of health. It was very hard adjusting to his absence, but we all had to step up and do what needed to be done. It was what he would have expected us to do. Moore said everyone pitched in to make things run smoothly from law enforcement to the clerks, judges and attorneys. Everyone did what was needed to keep things on track. Ms. Moore was the sole representative of the county judges office in a one-judge county, current county Judge Richard B. Davis wrote in his nomination letter for the award. For four months, Moore kept the office running, while dealing with a parade of 12 judges who were filling in, as well as their judicial assistants. Judges were in and out, often irregularly, due to their responsibilities in their own counties Moore saw that all of the files and other documents for each case were organized for ease of use by the visiting judge in each case. She also worked to see that the judges were able to make the most use of their time in the courtroom, rather than bogged down in paperwork. Every judge who participated in filling in during the vacancy has remarked about the pleasant demeanor, iron will and sense of responsibility and grace that Diane Moore displayed during this difficult time, Davis wrote. She contributed extraordinarily to the reputation of the Conference of County Court Judges by Moore honored with Conference of County Judges award Tornadoes fall to 1-6 after 48-0 loss to Wakulla

The police chief says he dont have enough money in his budget. We need to follow Hampton and Waldo and do away with our police department. Bradford county is very capable of policing our small town. We could save a lot of money to be used in other areas of the city that need it a lot more. We have the same reputation as Waldo and Hampton as a speed trap. Salaries alone would save us a lot of money. We need to put this on the next election ballot and let the citizens of Starke decide, not the city commission. Thanks Steven Rhoden Starke Police Department should be next to go Go along to get along is In the USA, weve fallen so deeply into this belief system that we now go along with ideas which are murderous, dangerous to our future, and downright evil. And not only do we just promote such abominations; in todays world, dissenters cant even object to these things without being vilified. For example, anyone who disagrees with the destruction of a developing human in a mothers womb will find much of the major media, high profile entertainment types, scads of politicians, and even some religious leaders screaming war on women (This in spite of the fact that half of the babies killed are females as are all of those mothers who later suffer physical and/or emotional turmoil in the aftermath of an abortion.) And then we have those who disagree with the powers-thatbe dominating Washington D.C. Anyone who would dare to push back against this administration is simply a racist, one of the foulest insults that can be hurled at another human being. (This one I know from personal experience.) It doesnt matter that this president has been the most abortion-supporting, opaque in spite of promises to the contrary--, constitution-ignoring, marriage-destroying, allyabandoning, terrorist-ignoring, wealth-distributing, liar to ever occupy the White House. The only reason anyone could oppose such a man is skin color! (Yeah, right!) Amazingly, even those who oppose Islam are open to condemnation. (Again, I can verify this from personal experience.) How could I personally be so arrogant as to argue against one of the worlds major religions? Isnt that unchristian of me? (Yes, I call myself a Christian.) Its quite simple. Ive actually read Muslim doctrine. Sharia law calls me an infidel; one who is subhuman and not even worthy of life. The goal of Islam is to extend its rule to the entire world, by any means necessary. I have no right or reason not to be a Muslim. Ever since Muhammad instituted Islam, its followers have been engaged in a war against anyone who opposes them. Believe it or not, I vehemently oppose such beliefs. Yet, somehow, I dont hate Muslims (as Ive been accused). I dont even know any Muslims. In fact, even though I abhor the idea of abortion, I dont even hate abortionists. The bottom line to all this name-calling, for these and all other liberal-supported absurdities, is very simple. Supporters of abortion, the Obama-regime, and Islam, as well as same-sex marriage proponents, global warming advocates, etc., etc. have no real choice. They cant defend their ideas with any kind of moral or reasoned and scientific facts, so all they have left is name-calling. Its pathetic, but I get that. I also deplore it. Perhaps wed all be better off, wed all get along better if we would go along with what has been revealed by our Creator. Lets go along with Jesus Christ, not mans perversities. Leonard C.

Even though only seven weeks separate the events, Milner said many of the professional shooters have agreed to return. The cost to shoot the entire course is $75 plus ammunition. However, Welch has agreed to reduce the price by $5 for any shooter bringing canned goods for the food pantry. We can certainly use canned or packaged goods and appreciate them, Milner said, but we can actually use funds raised even more effectively because of the buying power of the pantry. Milner said with Thanksgiving and Christmas approaching, the food pantry wants to assist as many needy and underserved families in Bradford County as possible. The food pantry is accepting $100 sponsorships for the 28 shooting stations from any businesses or individuals who want to make a tax-deductible donation. We are very appreciative of Pat Welch and his staff for allowing us to use this marvelous facility and hope that many food pantry supporters will bring their children out for a fun day of shooting, Milner said. Registration includes a sausage sandwich breakfast, as well as lunch. For more information, please contact Milner at 904-964-6904.

Both are respiratory illnesses and are caused by viruses though different ones. One indication that you may have the flu and not a cold is that the flu tends to come on quickly with much intensity and is often accompanied by two to three weeks of fatigue and weakness. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Flu season is October through May. The CDC recommends getting vaccinated in September or as early as the vaccine is available. However, if you miss that deadline it may still help to get vaccinated later in the flu season as most of the seasonal flu activity peaks in January or later. There are two types of flu vaccines: the flu shot and the nasal-spray flu vaccine. The flu shot is given with a needle and contains the inactivated virus. It is approved for use in people 6 months of age and older, including healthy people, people with chronic conditions and pregnant women. The nasal-spray contains a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses and is approved for use in healthy people 2-49 years of age who are not pregnant. If you or your family members are feeling a bit under the weather and want to know whether it is a cold or the flu, be sure to see your Provider soon. Your Provider may prescribe flu antiviral drugs if you are very sick or are considered high risk, but its very important that they be used earlywithin the first two days of symptoms. People considered at high risk for severe flu illness include pregnant women, young children, seniors, and those with certain chronic health conditions.

Keystone (0-5) hosts the Villages for homecoming at 7:30 p.m. The Indians are 0-1 in District 4-4A, while the Buffalo are 1-1. The Villages (4-2) is tied for second in the district with Bradford behind Umatilla, which has a 2-0 district record. Like Keystone, the Villages is coming off of an open date. The Buffalo lost 34-10 to Umatilla on Oct. 3. Union (4-2) attempts to even its District 7-1A record at 1-1 when it travels to take on Newberry at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Newberry (4-3) is 2-0 in the district with wins of 17-13 over Chiefland and 28-8 over Williston. The Panthers are coming off of a 6017 win over Toombs Christian Academy. A loss by Union would mean the Tigers would have to win out in the district and hope Dixie loses to Chiefland and Newberry, and Chiefland beats Williston. That would force a three-way tie for second, and a shoot-out would be played to determine which team would be the runnerup behind Newberry. The Tigers are trying to stop a two-game skid. Indians, Tigers return to action with big district games
