Flooding recommendations include shortand long-term solutions BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Pointing to lessons not learned in the past, residents flooded during Hurricane Irma are pressuring leaders to take action. Residents can remember four times the Sampson Lake neighborhood has flooded, and the Irma flooding was by far the worst, signaling to them that not only has there been inaction but the causes of flooding have been allowed to compound. Many of the ideas put forth during a Nov. 6 workshop with the county commission and Suwannee River Water Management District were researched and recommended by residents of Sampson and Crosby lakes. to kick the can down the road, District 5 County Commissioner Frank Durrance shared many of those ideas, including the request that the water control gates between Sampson Lake and Sampson River be left open during hurricane season, beginning June 1 through October or November. Residents will not complain about low lake levels, and while he said recreational visitors, he said the homes are more important. homes than it is for folks to fish, Durrance said. There were some homes on Sampson and Crosby lakes where they could fish in their house. Some want the gates left open all year long. For most, the duration of the gate opening would vary each hurricane season and should be based on common sense. Another commonsense idea is keeping the channel between the lake and the river clear of debris so it can hold and move as much water as possible downstream. Durrance said residents would also like the water management district to consider a periodic drawdown of Sampson lake. Drawing down the lake every five years could benefit the lake and allow the removal of invasive plants. firstname.lastname@example.org www.StarkeJournal.com Weekly deadline is Monday at 5 p.m. Phone 904-964-6305 Fax 904-964-8628 BY MARK J.

The past few months have been harrowing as he worst natural disaster while dealing with the illness of his mother, who recently passed away. The year has been marked by conflict, too, since Sheriff Gordon Smith announced his interest in taking over emergency management, saying he could run it more efficiently and save money. Smith the opportunity to make his case, but county commissioners told staff they want all of the options presented at that time. That would include options for appointing a coordinator for the Johns has also functioned as the countywide fire chief since volunteer Percy Sullivan relinquished the position in 2008. While Johns held both positions, the sheriff has said he has no interest in running the fire departments. The county commission, which has big decisions coming down the line about firefighting services as well including whether to establish a full-time paid fire department may want fire and emergency management to remain a package deal.

Commissioner Chris Dougherty spoke up for District 3 residents who were also flooded in and east of Starke, saying problems emanate further upstream and they have to be addressed as well. he said. The failure to capture that water and redirect the flow is why homes and streets flooded at the golf course and in the city of Starke and why the water in the lakes continued to rise after the rain stopped, he said. The same homes have also flooded during past storms. I understand leaving the gates open may help down at the lakes on that end, but we still have issues up at this end that I believe would be the headwaters Dougherty said. Houses on the water are susceptible to damage, including flooding, during hurricanes, he said. The flooding problem extends far beyond those areas, so capturing and redirecting that water needs to be a part of any plan developed, according to Dougherty. Tom Mirti, water resources division director for the Suwannee River Water Management that protect life and property. According to him, the district is open to recommendations from the county on the operation of the water control gates. The problem in the past has been challenges to proposed changes in the operational plans. The drawdown idea is an interesting one, he said, but would need input from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. SRWMD has funded a $225,000 grant to clean out Sampson River up and downstream of County Road 225, and the county will be seeking quotes from contractors to perform the work. It has also purchased thousands of acres of land west of Camp Blanding with the idea to abate flooding by holding water for aquifer recharge. The district is also recommending a watershed study be conducted on the Alligator Creek Basin and downstream water bodies, Mirti said. The district is working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to obtain federal funding for the study as well as funds to construct the recommended alternative. The funding requires congressional approval. whole picture to be able to get a good idea to see what steps are needed to try and control the resource, Mirti said. In this case, our primary goal would be to minimize flooding impacts to the extent that we can with the This is a long-term approach that actually began more than a impact could lend more urgency mean a quick solution. Beau Corbett from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it would be two and a half to three years to following a cost-share agreement between the federal government and water management district, the study itself, and the selection of the appropriate alternative. Then they go back to Congress to request the funds to construct There was audible criticism from the audience over the time frame of the study and eventual solution. The water management district first submitted a request to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in May 2016 but that was around four years after the prior flooding event, as Dougherty pointed out. Jessica Norfleet from Rep. as their work with Florida Rep. Bobby Payne on the pursuit of Resources Conservation Service through the Emergency Watershed Protection Program. This would be a solution for the short term to fund 75 percent of the cost of emergency measures like clearing debris from the creek. SRWMD is willing to the additional 25 percent of the funding. They are, however, asking for money at the end of the year, she said, and had to seek an extension of the Nov. 10 deadline to apply. Another program that Florida before involves buying up properties, tearing down the structures and restoring land as floodplains. That was right in line with what Starke City Manager Bob Milner said should happen along Alligator Creek and St. Clair Street in the city. Among other potential shortterm solutions, Mirti said the water management district is looking at re-establishing a drainage-recharge well in Sampson Lake that was plugged in 2011 because of the poor condition of the well. The well would serve a dual purpose, controlling the level of the lake to a small extent and increasing groundwater levels in the Floridan Aquifer. The district is exploring adding additional recharge wells in lakes upstream from the Santa Fe River as well. The district has already approved funding for a study of minimum flows and levels on the lake, and is looking at a possible cleanout of Alligator Creek between U.S. 301 and Lake Rowell, he said. While the leaders are still trying to figure it out, those flooded during Irma showed up to remind everyone that they are far from recovered. Those with homes some flooded weeks after the storm have not had an opportunity to make repairs. Some are paying money out of pocket to try. Many who were renting are finding they have no place to go. Resident Paul Still raised concerns about the discharged water from Chemours and the extent to which it contributed to flooding. have this problem, he said. Connie Henderson from Chemours said working with two water management districts, Suwannee River and St. Johns River, is an ongoing process. It is not an overnight one. Chemours will be submitting a permit modification application by the end of the year to begin some reclamation work of the mined area near Lawtey where water would be sent instead of Alligator Creek. From permitting to the completion of the work could take more than two years. As for the extent discharge from Chemours impacted flooding, Henderson said the amount of discharge is rainfall dependent and they received 12 inches of rain as well. The average discharge is 23 million gallons per day, she said. During Irma, contrary to rumor, none of Chemours retention structures failed, but there was enough water to flow over the emergency spillways, which are designed to hold water up to the 100-year flood elevation before allowing its release to prevent failure of the structure. There is an agreement with the water management district that allows Chemours to pump water to a point where gravity then drains it to the Keystone chain of lakes. Ever since she has been at Chemours, Henderson said they have actually exceeded the amount allowed per the agreement with the leniency of the district. They have to balance that with concerns about the minimum flows and levels of the Santa Fe River, however. She said Keystone has received more than 100 million gallons since mid-June. Before that, there was no water to release. Discharge fell below 2 million gallons a day in October, so discharge to Keystone stopped at that point. The only time water did not go to Keystone during the storm was when we lost power, Henderson said. It was clear officials wanted more of that discharge out of Alligator Creek, with Dougherty water in your lakes over in in Bradford County. Starke City Commission Wilbur Waters said Chemours should be held liable and made to come up with the funding to alleviate flooding.

getting pretty nervous in the fourth set, but added that she and her teammates decided they didnt want their season to end. If they had to go out, they were going to go out giving all they had. What happened was the Tigers scored four straight points with Beatty serving to take a 20-19 lead. A tip by Fulgham led to the first point during that span, while her block kept play alive and eventually led to an attack error by the Hornets for the second point. Lafayette then failed to make a play on a free ball sent over by Fulgham. Kish added a back-row kill before a side-out. It was tied at 22-22 when an serving. Summer Fulgham had two kills during that span, but the Hornets hurt themselves with mistakes as they did throughout the set. Madelyn Kish had two kills that helped Union go up 11-4. Kish later held serve with a 21-15 lead. The Tigers closed it out, capitalizing on a Beatty kill and three Lafayette errors. Lafayette came out much better in the second set as the teams remained close, but with a 15-9 lead, the Hornets scored seven straight points with Autumn Smith serving. They had one kill during that span, but every other point came off of Union errors. The Tigers just never got back into the game, which Lafayette closed out with two straight points behind the serve of Sarah Hamlin. Kills by Kish and Beatty gave the Tigers early leads in the third set, but Lafayette gradually began pulling away. Two kills by Kish and one by Fulgham helped Union remain close until the Hornets scored six straight points with Haley Ellefson serving to go up 23-13. Ellefson helped her teams cause with an ace and a back-row kill. The Tigers showed a little life late, scoring two straight points with Adams serving to make it 24-18 before Lafayette ended the set with a kill. Union built a 7-3 lead in the fourth set, scoring three straight points with Emily ONeal serving. The Hornets later took a 13-10 lead after scoring five straight points before a Kish kill forced a side-out. Two points with Kish serving evened the score, but Lafayette scored four straight points with Smith serving to go up 19-15. Beatty admitted that she was BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer In winning the Region 3-1A championship last year, the Union County High School volleyball team swept Lafayette. The Hornets proved to be a tougher out this year, but the Tigers rallied from behind in the fourth set, fighting off match point in the process, and won the tiebreaker set by six points to capture their second straight Region 3 title by a 3-2 ( 25-15, 10-25, 18-25, 27-25, 15-9) score on Nov. 2 in Mayo. This year was more of a fight, but it feels even better than last year, senior Taylor Beatty said. After Kylie Stevens matchwinning kill, it was difficult for first-year head coach Jordan Windham to compose herself. Its insane, she said. It is amazing. Im emotional just thinking about it. We knew, coming into this game, it was going to be like crazy tough. The Tigers (13-11) rolled to a rather easy win in the first set, but seemed to be on the ropes after dropping the second and third sets and trailing in the fourth. Senior Madison Adams admitted her team was a little down after losing the third set, but that fourth game, we stepped it up at the end and came back together. By rallying, the Tigers avoided being swept by the Hornets this season, who beat Union three times during the regular season. Beatty was proud of her teammates for not giving up when things looked dire. They couldve easily rolled over and died, Beatty said. They didnt. That makes me proud because I knew they were fighting for me just as much as I was fighting for them. Windham said, They pulled it together. They fought. They adjusted. They worked their butts off and amazingly came out with this super-crazy win. I couldnt be more proud of them.

More than 200 Bradford County elementary students participated last year. That growth or the events existence wouldnt be possible without the support of a caring community.

A Fulgham block led to another side-out, but the Hornets Ellefson responded with a kill. It was 24-24 with Ellefson serving. A Union error gave the Hornets a 25-24 lead. Lafayette needed just one more point, but a kill by Kish forced side-out. Lafayette committed two straight attack errors with Kish serving to give the Tigers the 2725 win. We came together and really played hard there, Adams said of the fourth set. There was a lot of teamwork there. A 4-3 advantage in the fifth set turned into a 6-3 advantage with ONeal serving. The Tigers got two service points each from Fulgham and Kish in building a 12-5 lead. A Beatty kill forced a side-out and give the Tigers Adams a serve with a 13-6 lead. During a time out, Windham told her team, Listen, we have to get two before they get nine. We can do that, but we cannot let them get nine points. It just cannot happen. It didnt. Though an Adams service error led to side-out, which was followed by two more Lafayette points off a kill by Hamlin and a Union error, Stevens had a kill to force the last side-out of the match. Beatty stepped in to serve, and after the Hornets failed to capitalize on two free balls, Stevens made them pay with the match-ending kill. Kish led the Tigers in kills with 14, while Fulgham and Beatty had seven and six, respectively. Kish added 14 service points, five aces and nine digs. Brooke Waters had eight digs, while Adams and ONeal each had seven. Adams had 28 assists, while Fulgham added four blocks. The Tigers now prepare to play their third straight team this postseason that has more than 20 wins on its resume. Beatty knows a little of what to expect from the Red Devils as her experience playing club ball has her familiar with some of their players. I know that its not going to be easy, Beatty said. From here on out, its not easy. Tonight wasnt easy, but were going to give it our all. Thats all we can ask. Windham expects nothing less than the tenacious effort she saw on the court against Lafayette. Well figure out what were facing and what we need to do to win and well come out raring and rolling, because we are not done, Windham said. We are not done until we get to Jacksonville. We do not want to stop. The winner between Union and Williston will face either Blountstown (21-7) or Sneads (24-4) for the state title. Sneads is attempting to win its fifth straight title. TITLE Continued from 1B BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Do you need to take Financial Accounting, but dont relish the thought of taking a difficult course in one semester, due to time constraints or other reasons? Santa Fe College has your solution in the form of Principles of Accounting 1 and Principles of Accounting 2, both of which will be offered at the Andrews Center in the spring and taught by Daneen Adams. Really, its the course Financial Accounting, Adams said. We cover the chapters Financial Accounting covers, but we break the book into two parts: Principles 1 and Principles 2. Adams, who has taught classes at the Andrews Center for 11 years and who has taught at Santa Fe a total of 16 years (following four years as an adjunct instructor), said the reason she began teaching the Principles of Accounting classes is because they make a challenging course in Financial Accounting a little easier for those who are dualenrolled high school students. The pre-requisites required still prohibit a lot of dualenrolled students from taking the classes, Adams said. However, the Principles of Accounting classes are appealing to those who are juggling responsibilities besides school. Its slower-paced and more doable, especially if youre taking other classes or working, Adams said. A lot of people, it seems like theyre doing more than just going to school. Theyre trying to juggle a lot. For the ones who have families, the ones who are working, it is nice. Adams said she has heard that Financial Accounting is considered one of the hardest classes in the U.S. in terms of the number of people who either drop or fail the class. Breaking it up into the two Principles of Accounting classes may make it a little more manageable, but make no mistake its still difficult. Adams said for students to be successful, they have to come to class and put in the work. Showing up unprepared for exams is not going to cut it. I try to keep them on track, Adams said. Thats the most important thing letting them know what theyre in for and kind of keeping them on track. Not every student will succeed. Adams knows that, but that doesnt mean she doesnt do her best in trying to make every student understand the class material. Of course Id love 100 percent of the students to understand it, Adams said, but its accounting. Its a difficult course. Some are going to grasp it more than others. My true goal is Id love 100 percent of the people to understand 100 percent of the material. Thats my goal, so I keep trying. Adams, who grew up in Pennsylvania, said she wasnt sure what she wanted to do career-wise when she began attending the University of Pittsburgh. She gave a thought to possibly becoming an elementary school teacher, but she said for some reason, she began taking courses that resulted in her earning a degree in business administration. In thinking about where she wanted to go with that degree, Adams said she decided to return to school to major in accounting. The subject was something she took a shine to. I had a great teacher, Adams said. I think she just made it so exciting. I just loved the material. Adams earned a masters degree as well, which set her up for teaching. She worked as a CPA for five or six years and enjoyed it, but that earlier desire to teach never left her. She worked as an adjunct instructor at Santa Fe for four years to make sure it was a fit for me. Shes been there ever since. It kind of came full circle, Adams said. I thought I wanted to teach elementary, but Im teaching college.

BY CHUCK DOWLING Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor It took the squad coming back from a 24-12 halftime deficit, but the Keystone Heights Indians are headed to the postseason for the first time since 2014 after defeating visiting Pierson Taylor 34-31 for homecoming on Nov. 3. After losing five straight midseason, the Indians (4-5) will now enter the playoffs winners of two straight. The team will play at Bradford (8-1) on Friday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m. Keystone jumped both Mount Dora (5-4) and The Villages (55), which beat the Indians 40-14 in Keystone just a few weeks ago, to earn the fourth seed in Region 2-4A. With things still uncertain after the game, head coach Chuck Dickinson stated, I think we still got a chance. All we did was take care of what we could. Their win over the Wildcats (7-3) began with a big return by Colton Crane, who actually fumbled the ball forward, but the Indians were able to fall on it. Three plays later, on third-and-4, Ty Friedlin had the home sides first first down of the game. Unfortunately, the drive stalled when Briar Smith fumbled the ball away, and Pierson Taylor took over at their own 28. On the Wildcats opening possession, they kept it on the ground. They crossed midfield with a 25-yard run to the Indians 35 before junior running back Jaden Reeves eventually punched it in from 2 yards out with 6:49 remaining in the first quarter. Neftaly Paulinos extra point made it a 7-0 ballgame. Taylor decided to kick to Crane again, and again he made them pay for it with a big return to his own 45. Blake Sanders carried it to the the 50 on the following play, and then on his very next carry went 50 more for the score. Alex Cruzs PAT attempt was blocked, and Keystone still trailed, 7-6. The Wildcats returned the ensuing kickoff all the way to the Indians 30. Reeves fumbled, but fell on it with 4:43 remaining in the first. Facing third-and-7, Daniel Gemeinhardt rumbled 13 yards. Taylor kept with the ground game and got all the way to the 1-yard line, but on thirdand-goal with 1:51 remaining, an illegal procedure moved them back 5 yards. They could only get 2 of them back on the next play and had to settle for a 21yard field goal to go up 10-6 with 1:04 left in the opening quarter. The Wildcats had seemed to learn their lesson at this point, Indians rally for 34-31 homecoming win over Taylor BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a shaky first-half performance for the Bradford High School football team, but the Tornadoes scored five second-half touchdowns in defeating host Middleburg 41-24 on Nov. 3. The Tornadoes (8-1) trailed 17-7 at the half, but got an early spark in the second on an interception return for a score by lineman D.J. Mackey. The offense then added four more touchdowns three of which covered more than 30 yards. They dont give up, Bradford head coach Brian Tomlinson said of his players. That says a lot about this team. Championship teams find a way to win. With the Florida High School Athletic Association changing its playoff format, teams in Class 1A-4A no longer play for district championships. So the first championship Bradford can try to win is the Region 2-4A title. The first step begins Friday, Nov. 10, when the Tornadoes host Keystone Heights (4-5) in a Region 2 semifinal at 7:30 p.m. Bradford earned its regions top seed based on its regular season (see related story). I cant wait to see where this goes, Tomlinson said. Bradford struggled with offensive consistency in the first half against Middleburg, punting on its first four possessions. Meanwhile, the Broncos (19) built a 10-0 lead, with the first seven points coming at the conclusion of a 90-yard drive. A 25-yard pass from Garrett Blanchett to Kevin Littles turned a first down at 10-yard line to a first down at the 35. Blanchett then hit Andrew Thomas with a pass along the sideline that resulted in a 62-yard touchdown with 10:31 to play in the second quarter. A 39-yard run by Tyler Bryant later in the quarter put the Broncos at the Bradford 11. Middleburg could get no closer and settled for a field goal to go up 10-0 at the 6:10 mark. The Tornadoes began clicking on offense, picking up chunks of yardage. Jeremiah Vaughn had a 13-yard run to start Bradfords ensuing possession, followed by an 18-yard pass from Zion Barber to Chris Cummings. Tally Chandler then had a 10-yard run before Cummings took a Barber pass and turned it into a 24yard gain to the Middleburg 6. A holding penalty and a fumble backed the Tornadoes up to the 15, but a 10-yard reception by Cummings put them back at the 5. A 4-yard run by Barber set up his own 1-yard plunge into the end zone. Barbers PAT cut the Broncos lead to 10-7 with 2:55 remaining in the half. Middleburgs Tanner Nobles returned the ensuing kickoff 28 yards to the Bradford 49, with a 15-yard penalty on the play setting the Broncos up at the Bradford 33. Bradfords Jaquez Mosley dropped Bryant for a 2-yard loss on second-and-10, but Bryant then took a screen pass and turned it into a 35-yard touchdown at the 1:49 mark. The PAT put Middleburg up 17-7. Though it gave up four plays of 25 yards or more in the first half, the Bradford defense provided a spark to start the second half when Mackey batted a Blanchett pass, caught it and ran approximately 30 yards for a touchdown. Barbers PAT made it 17-14 a minute into the second half. Mackey has shown a knack for batting passes near the line of scrimmage as his game continues to develop. The fact that he turned one of those into an interception didnt surprise Tomlinson. Hes figured out that, Hey, I dont have to make sacks. I can just jump up and knock the ball down. He has some of the best hands on the team, Tomlinson said. The Tornadoes were close to entering the fourth quarter still trailing, but a 6-yard run by Barber on a fake punt changed that. Barbers run resulted in a first down at the Bradford 39. Vaughn broke loose for a touchdown run from there, with Barbers PAT making the score 21-17 with 59 seconds left in the third quarter. Bradford went on to score on its next three offensive series. A 56-yard drive ended in four plays, with Vaughn and Barber running for gains of 10 and 5 yards, respectively, before Chandler carried two straight times. Chandlers second carry had him scoring from 34 yards out. Barbers PAT made it 2817 three minutes into the final quarter. Barber added to the lengthy touchdown runs when he broke free along the sideline for a 70yard score at the 6:02 mark. His PAT made it 35-17. Those second-half touchdown runs pushed Barber, Chandler and Vaughn over the 100-yard mark. Barber led the team with 126 yards on 12 carries. Vaughn had 123 yards on nine carries, while Chandler had 101 yards on 14 carries. Mackey wasnt done making plays on defense. He hit Bryant and was in the midst of tackling him for a loss when he forced a fumble, which was recovered by teammate Taz Curry at the Middleburg 30. A 25-yard reception by Nick Channell set up Barbers 5-yard touchdown pass to Cummings with 3:44 remaining. The PAT was blocked, making the score 41-17. Barber completed 12-of-20 passes for 135 yards. Cummings caught seven of those passes for 77 yards. Middleburg capped the scoring, driving 65 yards for a touchdown. The Broncos found the end zone on Blanchetts 8-yard pass to Malik Ally with 1:09 on the clock. After gaining 176 yards in the first half, the Bradford offense finished with more than 500. Plus, the defense began limiting the number of big plays by the Broncos, with Mosley recording a team-high 10 tackles. Taro Ward and Nathan Davis had nine and eight, tackles, respectively. Tomlinson said he felt his team was failing to do the little things in the first half and credited the Broncos with delivering a punch in the mouth. It was a punch in the mouth Tomlinson felt his team needed. He couldnt be happier with the response now that the postseason is beginning. I love these guys, Tomlinson said. They play hard. We needed a little bit of adversity, and we overcame it. Tornadoes defeat Broncos 41-24 for 8th straight win Dr. Virgil A. BerryCHIROPRACTIC PHYSICIANServing the area for 27 years.

I do not think he ever made a point, typical of philosophers, until his last couple of sentences in which he blamed all the flag hullabaloo on President Donald Trump. Hogwash, in the first degree. The black football players have talked about social inequality which is slang for you should take from those who are productive in our society and give it to those who refuse to work so everybody has equal amounts of money. This is supposedly based on the fact that someone may once have owned slaves thus the non-productive have been somehow deprived. And most of those taking a knee are so ignorant they cannot string a complete sentence together because they skipped school to sell drugs. The other argument is police brutality because if you pull a weapon on a police officer you may get shot. Well, do not commit crimes and do not pull weapons on police officers and you have no problem. I have never heard the NFL players argue that people should not murder police officers as they have done in this country ever since B. Hussein Obama set such action in motion and declared on national TV that police officers are stupid. If you think America is responsible for all the worlds ills you obviously have buried your head in the sand. If you hate Dear Editor: Id like to respond to the Dear Editor: This is in response to the letter to the editor from Kate Ellison published Oct. 26. Clay Electric Cooperative has been serving this area for decades. We have adapted and continue to adapt. In fact, we will celebrate our 80th anniversary next year. There arent many locally-owned companies that can claim eight decades of service. We have seen tremendous change and growth in those years. We started with only a few thousand members and have grown to serve more than 170,000 accounts in 14 counties with more than 13,000 miles of line. As a distribution-only cooperative, we do not generate any of the electricity we sell to members. We are a member of Seminole Electric Cooperative. Seminole generates the electricity, we distribute it. Clay Electric, through Seminole, is committed to diversified fuel sources for generation. Seminole just installed a new 2.2-megawatt solar facility in Hardee County. Clay Electric is part owner of that farm. Seminole also has plans for a minimum 40-megawatt facility to come online in the next few years. But solar is just one part of Seminoles long-range plans for future generation. It recently announced plans to reduce its reliance on coal with a new 1,000-megawatt natural gasfired plant in Palatka. Clay Electric will be installing solar panels on its Orange Park and Palatka offices in early 2018. For many years, we have provided information to members who were interested in installing solar panels at their homes. We have featured several of them in our Kilowatt newsletter over the years. However, the installation of solar panels would not prevent, or help in any way, with outages. No matter how utility-scale electricity is generated, it still has to travel along the distribution system to reach the end-user. Hurricanes, storms and even vehicles hitting poles all cause damage to the physical system that distributes electricity. Solar would in no way help get the power back on any faster. Even installing underground service has limitations because all generation and transmission stations are above ground and thus vulnerable to hurricanes, lightning strikes and anything else that can cause damage. The reason our members were without power for days after Hurricane Irma was because extensive damage was done to more than 90 percent of our distribution system. No matter how the electricity is generated, we had to repair the system in order to provide it to our members. We dont want anyone to be without power for any length of time, but it takes time and manpower to get the lights back on, especially with the level of damage caused by Irma. In closing, we are proud to say that our mission has remained the same for 80 years: to provide members with safe, reliable and affordable electricity with excellent customer service. Letters firstname.lastname@example.org Clay Electric does adapt and has been doing so for 80 years The Weekly Paw Print: October has been designated as Adopt A This week we salute the unsung heroes of veterinary medicine. Im talking about National Veterinary Technician Week. The individuals you see assisting the veterinarian do more than you can see in the exam room alone. Veterinary technicians deliver medications, administer and monitor anesthesia, assist the veterinarian in surgery, collect and run lab tests, and so much more. They do all that they do while remaining patient and compassionate. They never lose sight of what their mission is and why they are there. The veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and the veterinary receptionists make up the veterinary team. Veterinarians rely on their team to care and provide for their patients beyond just the medicine. This week I would like to personally thank my awesome team. I could not do what I do without their help, their inspiration to be the best, and their compassion. It is my privilege to work with each and every one of them. Next time you see a member of your veterinary health care team, give them two paws up! Last week we talked about the importance of blood work and how it can be a useful tool for detecting early signs of disease associated with an aging pet. In fact, diabetes is one such disease. Although you or I may be familiar with diabetes, in many species diabetes can be very complex. Today we are going to give you a basic understanding of this disease.To understand diabetes better, we must rst discuss how the body controls and regulates blood sugar. It begins with the pancreas, the control center for regulating blood sugar. The levels of blood sugar, also known as glucose, change through out the day. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates glucose and keeps these levels in a normal range. Diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not produce adequate quantities of insulin which in turn drastically effects the normal ups and downs of glucose. Dogs and cats with diabetes often display an increase in thirst and urination. In older pets it may also manifest as urinary incontinence. So as your pet ages, monitoring for any change or increase in thirst and urination can be a useful tool in the early detection and proper management of diabetes. If you notice these changes do not wait until your next visit, let your veterinarian know. Diabetes screening is quick and can be typically accomplished with a small blood and urine sample right in your veterinary clinic. We see both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in pets. Treatment for diabetes is very specic to each patient and ultimately this might mean your pet will be on insulin therapy. If your pet is diagnosed with diabetes, there is no need to be afraid. Insulin needles are very tiny and pets are usually very amenable to them. Your veterinary medical team will give you a good detailed instructional on how to use and give the insulin. It is important to note that pets with well managed diabetes can go on to lead relatively normal lives. Successful treatment all depends on early diagnosis. By monitoring your pets thirst and urination, you can help give your veterinarian the information they need to keep your furry family member healthier and happier longer. discussing school grades dont have students best interests at heart America so much that you will not honor our flag and anthem then perhaps you should move to North Korea where you would feel more at home. The other issue is the County Commission talking about how to go about establishing a County Fire Department and the possible imposition of a fire assessment to pay for it. I want to remind them that the residents of the City of Starke have a fine Fire Department, which we pay for and the County calls on for most everything that happens in the county. If they want to impose a fire assessment it should only be imposed on county residents outside the city limits of the City of Starke. Residents of the City should not have a county fire assessment for which we would receive zero benefit. James Powell Starke Black players idea of equality is taking from those who work and giving to those who dont Winter HoursMon 9-5 Wed 9-5 Fri 9-5 Derick Thomas Director of Member & Public Relations Clay Electric Cooperative material presented in a front page article in the October 19 Lake Region Monitor. Apparently Clay County School Superintendent Addison Davis gave a press conference at the Rotary Club and the article appears to be an attempt to transcribe the hot air that must have swept through the event. Primarily, Davis explained that he wants to improve the districts state letter grade from a B to an A. Now the main problem here is things like that sound pretty good, and the average hardworking reader/parent might hear that stuff and think, Oh, good. Were working on improving education. But what does that letter grade actually mean? Well, theyre tied to school performance on assessment tests, which are based on state standards for instruction. These standards not only dictate the material that teachers are supposed to base their lessons on, but also philosophically inform that material with a particular worldview. So essentially, the letter grade reflects how well the students mirror these standards in multiple-choice form. Heres a problem for you: Do you remember voting on, voicing an opinion on, selecting, discussing, or even seeing these standards that are mandated for your children? Of course you dont. If you were to ask the school for a copy of the exact assessment test that your child took, what do you suppose you would get for an answer? Why dont you try it? Why does the state have special, countyendorsed secrets with your child? Bit creepy, no? Furthermore, why are the educrats and the teachers only voicing out against the assessments, and not the standards themselves? The answer is likely job security, but thats not the problem of Clay County citizens, who are trusting the education of their children with these public official hacks. To summarize: when a school board member, or a superintendent comes up to you and starts talking about school letter grades, assessment prep, and standardsalignment, know well that youre dealing with someone who does not have your familys best interests at heart. As for the Florida (Common Core) standards themselves, check them out at CPALMS.org. Sincerely, Jaymes Neal Strickland

The number of games played will be divided by that point total. Points are divided into four categories. Category 1: a win over an opponent that has won at least 80 percent of its games results in 50 points, while a loss results in 30. Category 2: a win over an opponent that has won 60-79 percent of its games results in 45 points, while a loss results in 25. Category 3: a win over an opponent that has won 40-59 percent of its games results in 40 points, while a loss results in 20. Category 4: a win over an opponent that has won 39 percent of its games or less results in 35 points, while a loss results in 15. Plus, a team earns three bonus points for each team it plays that was a playoff qualifier the previous two seasons. Also, three bonus points are earned for playing teams that finished in the top 25 in MaxPreps or USA Today end-of-year rankings. Bradford had one Category 1 opponent in West Nassau (8-1). Since the Tornadoes defeated the Warriors, they earned 50 points. The Tornadoes played three Category 2 opponents in Taylor County (7-3), Fort White (73) and Crescent City (7-2). Bradford beat Fort White and Crescent City, earning 45 points from each win as well as three bonus points due to Fort Whites past in reaching the playoffs. Bradford lost to Taylor County, which resulted in 25 points as well as an additional three bonus points due to Taylor County making the playoffs in the past. Bradford earned 40 points each from defeating Baldwin and Keystone and three bonus points from playing Baldwin. The Tornadoes earned 35 points each from defeating Kingdom Prep, Hamilton County and Middleburg, with the games against Hamilton County and Middleburg earning them three bonus points each. The result was that Bradford edged Dunnellon for the numberone seed with an average of 40.56. Dunnellon had a 40.11 average. Besides Bradford, Dunnellon and Trenton, only two teams in Region 2-4A had at least five wins: Mount Dora (5-4) and The Villages (5-5). Yet Keystone had an average of 32, placing the Indians ahead of The Villages average of 31.90 and Mount Doras average of 31.33. Keystone received bonus points from only one of its opponents (Bradford), but it went 1-4 against teams that finished in categories 1-2. That win came last week against Pierson Taylor, which finished as a Category 2 team. Mount Dora was 0-3 against teams in either Category 1 or 2, while The Villages went 0-4. The Indians earned 63 points for playing Category 1 teams (losses to Bradford and Wildwood), 95 points for playing Category 2 teams (a win against Pierson Taylor and losses to Crescent City and Hawthorne), 60 points for playing Category 3 teams (a win against Fernandina Beach and a loss to The Villages) and 70 points for playing Category 4 teams (wins against P.K. Yonge and Interlachen). The four Region 3-1A teams that made it to the postseason are the only ones in the region with winning records, though Union edged out two 5-5 teams to get in. The Tigers had an average of 34, while Chiefland and Branford had averages of 32.40 and 32.30, respectively. Union, Chiefland and Branford each played four teams that wound up finishing in Category 1 or Category 2, with the Tigers defeating one (Hawthorne) and going 1-3, while Chiefland and Branford each went 0-4. The Tigers also earned 15 bonus points, while Chiefland and Branford had nine and three, respectively. Union earned 33 points for playing one Category 1 team (a loss to Dixie County), 101 points for playing Category 2 teams (a win against Hawthorne and losses to Fort White and Taylor County), 63 points for playing Category 3 teams (a win against Baldwin and a loss to Williston) and 143 points for playing Category 4 teams (wins against Avant Garde, North Florida Educational Institute, Interlachen and Newberry). Madison County and Dixie County had averages of 44.20 and 43.90, respectively, to earn that regions top two seeds. Third-seed Lafayette had an average of 38.20.

After a three-and-out, the Indians punted the ball away, and Taylor resumed on offense in the second quarter. The Wildcats went right back to work on the ground, driving to the 15 before Williams went all 15 to pay dirt on third-and-1 with 8:57 remaining in the half to go up 17-6. Keystone would take over at their own 35. Smith took it 15 to midfield with under four minutes to go. A 24-yard gain from Smith took it all the way down to the 20. With the drive stalling on third-and-9 from the 19, Adrien Ciena threw his second incomplete pass in a row to bring up fourth down. However, after a wide rollout, Ciena heaved the ball to the goal line, where Sawyer Maxwell came down with it. The two-point conversion failed when Ciena was unable to hook up with Sanders, and with 7:07 remaining in the half, the Wildcats were nursing a 17-12 lead. Nearly four minutes later, after a Taylor 27-yard run down to the 5, a holding call brought it all the way back to the 37, but on the very next play, Taylor took it all the way down to the 12, but offsetting penalties made them repeat the down. Approaching the three-minute mark, senior quarterback Vicandi Ward hit Gemeinhardt on second-and-15 for 10, but on the the next play, Wiliams took it 27 yards for the score with 2:25 in the half. The PAT Made it 24-12. After a horsecollar call on the TD, the Wildcats were easily able to kick it through the back of the end zone. Keystone did little to try to answer before half. While there was a big run from Smith toward midfield, a flag called it back, and soon the halftime horn sounded with the home side trailing by 12. At some point in the first half, Cruz suffered a neck injury. He came out in the second half with his shoulder pads off. That is when Dickinson decided every kickoff from here on out would be an onside kick. The one to open the second half did not work out, but the Wildcats would end up fumbling it away at the Keystone 30. Thats when, after a few more plays, Sanders took it in from over 30 yards out for his second touchdown of the night. This time, the two-point conversion was good, and the lead was cut to 24-20. On the evening, Sanders carried 13 times for 136 yards and two scores, good enough for a 10.5 average. This time, the onside kick was a good one, and after a facemask penalty, the Indians found themselves at the Taylor 30-yard line with 5:32 remaining in the third. Smith rumbled down to the 8 before a holding penalty brought it back to the 18. On third-and-6, Briar Smith took it in for a touchdown. On the twopoint play, Ciena, despite being wrapped up at the line, fought through and managed to score. All of a sudden, after entering the locker room down by 12 at the break, the Tribe found themselves with a 28-24 lead in the third quarter. Afterward, the Indians tried their third onside kick in a row. This time, the bounce was too high, and the Wildcats recovered at their own 45. They would go three-and-out. However, on the ensuing Keystone drive, a fumble would give Pierson Taylor the ball back. Lleyton Murphy came up with a big sack to end the third quarter and put Taylor into a second-and-20 situation to open the fourth. On fourthand-10, with 10:57 remaining, a QB keeper by Ward was close, yet not enough. On the next drive, Keystone faced a third-and-4, but an illegal procedure call pushed them back 5 yards, and an incomplete pass from Ciena on the next play forced the Indians to punt. With 8:17 remaining, Ward went 59 yards for a Pierson Taylor touchdown, and after the PAT, the Wildcats were back on top with 8:17 to go. Still refusing to kick it deep to Crane, the kickoff was fielded by Chandler Padgett at the 38. Thats when Ciena hit Sanders on a 22-yard pass in stride. Two plays later, Sanders went 14 yards. Sanders then did it again on the exact same play as before. Friedlin then took it in for a togoal situation. Sanders appeared to score a TD before having it moved back to about the 1-inch line. On third down, Friedlin punched it in to return to the lead to Keystone, 34-31. The kick was again blocked, and the Tribe were forced to try to protect the lead down the stretch. They did just that after another failed onside kick. A Wildcats fumble recovered by Dan Dodd at the Indians 37 game the ball back to the home side, but they were unable to do anything with it and had to punt it away with 1:47 remaining. With Taylor taking over at their own 28, a huge sack made their path to victory even more difficult. An attempted quarterback keeper on the next play resulted in another sack by Carter Semione with 37 seconds left, putting the Wildcats in dire straights. Finally, on fourth down, with 10 seconds to go, a pass attempt fell incomplete, giving the Indians the upset homecoming victory and the playoff birth. Even if this outcome didnt come out right and they would have scored, I still would have been proud of them because we played our hearts out and left it on the field, Dickinson said. I told the seniors, Hey, youve got 48 minutes. me better. Living in Florida suits Adams, too. She moved here 21 years ago due to husband Tims job transfer. The sunny weather makes the Pennsylvania native feel like shes on vacation every day. She did say she wouldnt mind a lesser amount of such hot and humid weather, but it beats the snow she was used to. The snow is nice for the first snowfall, but after that, it gets hard to drive in, Adams said. The sleet, the ice its just hard. Though shes an experienced teacher, every first day of classes brings about the same feelings she experienced as a first-time teacher. Im still nervous, Adams said. I always have that little bit of nervousness just because its new people. Some students will probably be nervous as well, but Adams does her best to be a calming KHHS Continued from 3B Continued from 2B influence. She said she tries to make her classes fun. I dont want to scare them off, because accounting is difficult, Adams said. I say, Dont worry. Its hard, but were going to work our way through it. I try to encourage them and not overwhelm them.
