CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The American Legions role in honoring the service of veterans goes deeper than its sponsorship of annual Veterans Day programs. The national organization mentors youth, conducts a variety of programs and promotes patriotism. In addition to taking care of their communities American Legion veterans help take care of each other, including comforting wounded warriors and their families. And, yes, they sponsor annual Veterans Day observances, like the one Saturday in Starke featuring retired U.S. Air Force Col. John F. OSullivan Jr. OSullivan said his 30-plus years in the military included service in Vietnam, Desert Storm and other little scrapes and bruises. He said he was proud to have grown up in a military family, with a father and brother in the U.S. Army and him and his sister in the Air Force. His grandfather enlisted in the Navy and died during World War I, and he has a daughter in the Navy who fought in Afghanistan. You might be surprised that doctors can go as combat advisors, as I was. I was stunned, actually. To prepare her, the United States Army trained her to be an urban warfare infantry officer. The stunning part of it for me was, she came out number one out of 700 going through the training, he said. OSullivans family has taken advantage of the G.I. Bill, an important piece of legislation and a national commitment to reward veterans for their service dating back See VETS, 3A in memory of lost veterans. JROTC members Burns and Hamilton sing The StarSpangled Banner. JROTC member Ellison places a wreath at the memorial. Members in back include Ledbetter, Howard and Plasters. The crown observes a moment of silence for POW/MIA veterans. Vandals caught, one arrested BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Early morning vandalism involving two teens and a neighborhood of mailboxes led to the arrest of one on drug and other charges. Starke police officer Logan Hough was dispatched to Pratt Street and North Temple Avenue on Nov. 11 regarding a white SUV stopping around the neighborhood and someone hitting mailboxes with an unknown object. It was 4:17 a.m., and Hough observed a vehicle matching that description on Pratt Street, east of North Temple Avenue. He followed the vehicle to East Brownlee Street where the SUV was held up by a train. Officer Hough and Sgt. Kelly McMahan made contact with the driver and passenger, April Sabrina Wood and Madison Layne McClellan, both 19 and both from Starke. While speaking with Wood, Hough said he saw a metal baseball bat in the back of the car on the passenger-side floorboard. Wood was asked to pull into the CSX railroad yard and complied. Meanwhile, officer Ashley Cisco was investigating on Pratt Street, observing multiple damaged mailboxes. McClellan gave McMahan permission to search the vehicle and told her there was marijuana and narcotic equipment in the vehicle. McMahan requested Cpl. Brandon Shoup to respond with a K9, which did pick up the presence of narcotics. McMahan and Shoup searched the vehicle and discovered three digital scales with marijuana residue; a multicolor pipe with marijuana residue; a glass jar containing 2 grams of a green, leafy substance that tested positive as marijuana; three metal grinders with marijuana residue; and the pink and black metal baseball bat. Post-Miranda, Wood told Hough they had been waiting for a friend to finish work. To pass the time, they agreed to go to the West Pratt Street neighborhood and hit mailboxes. Wood was driving while McClellan hit the boxes. Cooperation pledged as emergency BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Bradford County Commission put Sheriff Gordon Smith in charge of emergency management at a special meeting Nov. 13 and named Fire Marshal Chip Ware as coordinator of the countys fire departments. Most spoke in favor of the handoff to the sheriff, with the primary arguments against it being weve always done it another way and things were going well under Emergency Management Director Brian Johns. Johns, however, one of the few dissenters along with County Commission Chairman Danny Riddick, has retired as of Monday, hence the need for the special meeting. Johns said most emergency management functions share a greater similarity to firefighting than law enforcement, and Smith doesnt want to oversee the fire departments. Sheriff Smith told the commission that all requests for public assistance already come to his 911 center and every response is dispatched from the same center. Response to emergency management incidents would only become more fluid if BCSO is fully coordinating that response, he said. His staff and volunteers would be activated automatically with the emergency operations center, including those with emergency management experience as well as the public relations experience to communicate quickly and effectively with citizens. Smith said he already has people on staff with years of experience in emergency management 300 years in total when added up. Asked who would actually hold the position of director, Smith said he was considering Lt. Ray Shuford, commander of the technical operations division overseeing technology, 911 communication and mapping among other things, and Michael Heeder, a coordinator in 911 dispatch with years of experience in fire and emergency response who was recently appointed chief of the Lawtey Volunteer Fire Department. In addition to his staff and volunteers, Smith said he had mobile command vehicles ready to deploy and inmate work squads to assist with recovery. He and his office are involved in the community, and he also has cooperative relationships with other agencies and political influence with state and federal officials. Most importantly, he said he has a proven record. That was something one of the public commenters speaking in favor of Smiths proposal to absorb emergency management also touched on. Stasia Rudolph said, If a proven executive Block scheduling proposed for middle and high school BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The principals and Bradford High School and Bradford Middle School believe a change in class scheduling could be key in turning around student performance. Superintendent of Schools Stacey Creighton has advocated the board return BHS and BMS to a seven-period day, but has embraced a proposal by principals Vinnie Blye and John Green, both of whom have had significant experience with block scheduling. Instead of six or seven courses in a sixor sevenperiod day, students could take eight courses a semester, going to four classes per day. Instead of 50or 60-minute class periods, each class would last 90 minutes. Some classes would be Mondays and Wednesdays, some Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Fridays would alternate. According to the principals, this would provide more time for instruction, project-based lessons and hands-on labs. There is also more flexibility for differentiation offering assistance and retaught concepts to students who need more help and enrichment opportunities for more accelerated learners. It also improves working conditions for teachers, who would have fewer classes to prepare for each day, fewer student contacts per day and fewer assignments to grade each day. Currently, BHS teachers teach six periods a day without a break, as their planning period occurs during the so-called zero period at the beginning of the day, and theyve asked administrators about a different schedule. Students would also have fewer classes, including quizzes and tests, to prepare for and less homework each day. Green said in his experience, this actually results in more work being completed. While they are enthused about the proposal, they also want teachers to be on board as well. That includes inviting department heads to visit a school operating on a block schedule to learn more and surveying teachers at both schools to gather feedback. Green said as a teacher, he only ever worked on a block schedule, so while trying to model teaching for an instructor on the current middle school schedule, he found he couldnt finish in time. With so many class periods so many startups and endings the day is too fragmented. There isnt time to employ active teaching strategies or engage students in project-based learning. By the time you take out the equipment and get everyone set up for a science lab, for example, theres very little time in that 50-minute window to work before its time to begin cleaning up, Green said. As an English teacher, he especially appreciated the extra time he could devote to writing in his classes. The principals also believe the longer class periods promote stronger personal interactions between teachers and students. There are some draw backs.

The UCI group earned the National Incarcerated Chapter of the Year Award, which is presented every two years by VVAs National Board. Union CI Chapter 1080 President Edward Shook also earned the National Incarcerated Member of the Year Award, which is presented every two years as well. First founded in 2013, the Union CI chapter is comprised of inmates who served in the American Armed Forces and were deployed to Vietnam. These men were later incarcerated, but they first went into harms way to serve their country prior to committing the act for which they are now serving a prison sentence. The UCI chapter is sponsored by the Clay County VVA chapter since inmates are not allowed to handle funds of any kind. Since its inception, the group has sought ways to serve the veterans at UCI, veterans in the community and charitable groups and organizations in the community. The many ways these incarcerated veterans have reached out in their attempts to be of service had a direct impact on the decision to give them these two national awards. Chapter 1080 provides special programs for the recognition of veteran inmates at UCI on several different holidays during the year. They invite special speakers and organize musical and other presentations. The chapter sponsors a walkathon each year and requests donations from friends and family members in the community, UCI staff and other veterans organizations who have expressed an interest in supporting the groups efforts. Each year the chapter decides which charitable group or organization will receive the funds. In the past, they have donated money to Toys for Tots, for school supplies for children who cant afford them, and for several other worthy purposes. In 2017, a total of 254 inmates walked 1,441 miles in laps around the recreation yard over a period of three days. The oldest veteran walker was 82. The walkathon raised a total of $3,200, which the chapter voted to divide between two groups. Lake Butler Middle Schools sixth grade classes were in need of classroom supplies, so the VVA gave them $1,600, half of the funds raised. The other half went to Clay County VVA to assist with the effort to establish a facility in Clay County that will house homeless veterans. Union CI VVA members also volunteer to assist community veterans in Veterans Court, a Duval County pretrial intervention program. A community veteran who does not have a significant criminal history and is not charged with a violent offense is eligible to participate in Veterans Court if he comes before the judge in Duval County. He will have to serve a period of probation, pay fines, do hours of community service and take a trip to Union CI to talk with incarcerated veterans in a mentoring program. The UCI veteran inmates tell the Veterans Court participants about the mistakes they made that led them to become incarcerated. The UCI inmates encourage the Veterans Court participants to make changes in their lives that will help them avoid incarceration. The Duval County Court System has reported that the program has been very successful in helping ensure less serious infractions dont become big problems. The Union CI VVA also lends assistance to the ROCK Hounds program at UCI. The cooperation began because a number of the inmates who are members of VVA also work in the ROCK Hounds program. ROCK Hounds inmates take stray/shelter animals and provide them with basic training to make them more adoptable. They also take sick animals and nurse them back to health so they will be more adoptable. The dogs become housebroken, sleep in kennels, are trained to walk on a leash and obey basic commands. The dog trainers also cooperate with mental health professionals to provide pet therapy for different groups of inmates housed at UCI who have serious mental illnesses. The inmate trainers gain experience that will assist them if they seek jobs working with animals once they are released from prison. The dogs gain forever homes with families who love them. The Lake City Humane Society, a nonprofit organization, sponsors all costs associated with the ROCK Hounds program and often needs the assistance of donations for pet food, pet medications, or supplies. On occasion, VVA has provided some of the supplies needed by the program. Recently, through the ROCK Hounds, the VVA has also reached out to assist a similar dog program at Baker Correctional Institution, called the CARE (Canine Assist with Re-Entry) program. Planning veterans events, raising donations for a number of charities, mentoring community veterans to help them avoid prison and assisting with the dog training programs all of these had a bearing on why Union CIs VVA was recognized on the national level. Chapter 1080 earned these two national awards because of their constant efforts to assist their fellow veterans and give back to the community at large. The awards were presented at a special Veterans Day ceremony l-r) Assistant Warden of Operations Paul Kish, Assistant Warden of Programs Tifani Knox, the Rev. Patrick Archuletta of Jesus Loves Papa of Patriots of Valor, Mary Anne Newman from Clay County VVA, Principal Carolyn Parrish from Lake Butler Middle School, Gary Newman and Vince Gomez, both from Clay County VVA. Clay County VVA Representative Gary Newman presented Union CI Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1080 with the National Incarcerated Chapter of the Year Award. Receiving the award were Union CI VVA President Edward Shook and Assistant Warden Tifani Knox. The award is presented by the national Vietnam Veterans of America Board once every two years. The Clay County chapter sponsors the Union CI chapter. Shook also received the National Incarcerated Veteran of the Year Award. James Perry performed a beautiful a cappella rendition of the National Anthem. Bob Papa of Patriots of Valor, and a representative of a prison ministry in New Jersey called The speaker for the ceremony Nov. 6. The Clay County Vietnam Veterans of America chapter, which sponsors the Union CI chapter, has been supportive of the ROCK Hounds program at UCI. A number of Union CI VVA members also work in the ROCK Hounds program, which is aimed at rehabilitating shelter dogs and making them more adoptable. UCI has been working also rehabilitates shelter animals. Clay County VVA donated seven In Training vests for use by dogs in the Baker program. Plans are for some of these dogs to eventually be trained as support animals for veterans with PTSD. Gary Newman from the Clay County VVA the ROCK Hounds program.

One was to donate to Lake Butler Middle School for sixth grade classroom supplies. Additional money came in at the last minute, so the amount donated to LBMS was actually $1,600. Accepting the check was Union CI VVA President Edward Shook the VVA aware that the school was in need of supplies.

American Legion Post 56 Commander Raymond Hunt and Chaplain Bob Lawry. JROTC member Langille and Pete make their way to the memorial. to the World War II era. It has an important connection to the American Legion. OSullivan said Harry W. Colmery, a Republican National Committee chairman and former national commander of the American Legion, is credited for writing the first draft of the G.I. Bill during the World War II era, a bill that went further than the legislation previously proposed by President Roosevelt and called for full benefits for all veterans, including educational benefits, unemployment and home purchasing assistance. Those benefits do not absolve the public from setting aside time to acknowledge veterans, their families and their sacrifices on Veterans Day, the commemoration of which rests with the American Legion. OSullivan talked about several things that are important to remember on Veterans Day, recalling how Francis Scott Key christened the United States as Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. I believe those words are as true today as they were then, he said, adding that the country hasnt paid its debt to many veterans hundreds of thousands who died, and millions of others who were wounded. On the value of the U.S. military, OSullivan called it an amazing institution because it is one of the worlds largest providers of international aid and disaster relief. You see it happening right now, he said. It is also one of the most educated militaries in the world, he added, requiring an education to enter and expanding educational opportunities during and after service. OSullivan and his wife, Cindy, teach in Clay County and one of the things they teach is CyberPatriots, a program affiliated with the Air Force. According to the website, At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six-hour period. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn allexpenses paid trips to Baltimore, Maryland, for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money. The value of that is just incredibly important, said OSullivan, who said he formed the first cyber team in the Defense Department long before anyone used the word cyber. Whether we like it or not, Russia attacked the United States and they won. Something he said he learned from a fellow serviceman while at the National War College is that war is not won by weapons but by warriors. Make the warrior a weapon and given them the tools to succeed and come home, and no other force on earth can defeat him, OSullivan said. I believe that is the essence of what Veterans Day is about. All weve got to do is prepare that person, and nothing can defeat them. After recognizing the service members present and the conflicts they were involved in, from World War II through the War on Terror, American Legion Commander Raymond Hunt. also acknowledged prisoners of war and those missing in action, saying that many are unaccounted and the remains of others are still be found and brought home. Adjutant Mel Koski placed a POW/MIA flag on an empty chair as a reminder to keep fighting for the release of American prisoner and the repatriation of the remains of those who have died. The crowd observed a moment of silence. Bradford High Schools JROTC students were integral to the ceremony Saturday morning, placing memorial wreaths at the monument and lowering the flag to commemorate the fallen, and even performing the national anthem. VETS Continued from 1A McClellan admitted the vandalism to Hough as well, and she also claimed ownership of the marijuana, pipe, grinders and scales. She was arrested, and then Hough and McMahan searched the neighborhood and discovered 10 damaged mailboxes on West Pratt Street, two on Bradford Street and three on Blanding Street. While according to the report, Wood was released for her cooperation, but McClellan is facing 15 charges of criminal mischief, one charge for possession of marijuana and seven charges for possession drug equipment. She is being held in the Bradford County Jail with bond set at $100,000. ARREST Continued from 1A came to me and said, Ill do that job and you dont have to fill the position, and he had a reputation like Gordon Smith, I would say, Bonus! Whether the $75,000 in grant matching funds that was repeatedly addressed really represents a savings is debatable. Instead of being spent from the boards budget it will be spent from the sheriffs budget which is allocated and approved by the board. One way or the other, emergency management, which is largely funded by grant awards, will need local matching funds, as will the grants received for the fire departments. Smith said it is critical now that the county begin focusing on building a professional firefighting service and using any savings toward that. Following a unanimous vote to turn emergency management over to the sheriff, the commission voted unanimously to name Ware the countys fire coordinator. He and staff members Benji Bennett and J.F. Miller will work on building the countys fire service, while Smith said Wendy Russells years of experience will continue to make her a valuable employee in emergency management. Smith and Ware pledged a working relationship with each other and the board. Ware said there wasnt a single solution to the problem with fire services. Instead, they are going to have to think outside of the box and work as a team. Smith said as an elected official, he would also be accountable to voters. He will be accountable to the county commission as well, and so will Ware. As Commissioner Chris Dougherty pointed out to both men, The board giveth, the board taketh away. SPLIT Continued from 1A would be needed, and that will cost more money. How many more teachers and how much more money is still being evaluated. While there will be fewer classes to prepare for, teachers will have to prepare to use the time wisely. If you have a struggling teacher, 90 minutes is a long time to struggle, Green said. In contrast, highly effective teachers thrive with more time. While fewer transitions to classes during the day would reduce tardies, student attendance is an ongoing problem. Missing a day means missing more time in the classes scheduled for that day. Green said a block schedule would give them more time to make up work, however. What about when teachers miss a day? Blye said that doesnt have to mean sticking students with a substitute for 90 minutes. Teachers would fill in for teachers. Green said in his experience, teachers were willing to fill in for each other, trading their planning periods for compensatory time. Blye said some classes like advanced music courses would be programmed to take place daily. With eight courses possible per semester, they hope to get more students involved in careerrelated classes at the technical center, some of which are already taught in blocks. In addition to more electives, Creighton said students could retake courses instead of relying on computerbased credit recovery. School Board Member Cheryl Canova asked about the impact of block scheduling on dual enrollment at Santa Fe College since courses are typically scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday or on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If the high school is alternating courses on Friday, they will have to do something different with dual enrollment. Ideas mentioned included opening Fridays up for volunteering or internships. Creighton wants to add electives and start a teacher academy as well so the school system can grow its own teachers. The superintendent said transportation is not expected to be an issue. Middle and high school students would go to school earlier, with days beginning around 8:15 a.m. and ending around 3:25 p.m. Blye said no scheduling system is going to solve all of the problems. Research doesnt show one system versus another leads to higher achievement scores. What it does reveal is a need to find what will work best for each school and the community as a whole, and that is what they are trying to do, he said. That includes creating a better working environment for staff and one that cuts down on student discipline issues between classes. The board was receptive, but also wants input from teachers and the public. Blye and Green hope to have a final version of the bell schedule by mid-January. In addition to school board approval, the district would need the approval of the Florida Department of Education Office of Accountability. If the proposal is accepted, they would work toward implementing block scheduling for the 2018-19 school year. BLOCK Continued from 1A Early deadline The offices of the Bradford County Telegraph, Lake Region Monitor and Union County Times will be closed Thursday and Friday, Nov. 23 and 24, for the Thanksgiving holiday. There will be an early deadline on Monday, Nov. 20, at 3 p.m. for editorial and advertising submissions.

Lawtey alums turn out for school reunion BY PATRICE RUSSELL Special to the Telegraph On Nov. 4, all alumni, family and friends of alumni were invited to the Lawtey School Reunion at the Starke Golf and Country Club to enjoy a covered dish luncheon. There was a great turnout for the event and lots of delicious food. The reunion is put on once a year on the first weekend in November, organized by Charles Tatum and A.Q. Smith. The event has been taking place for 15 years. Those who attended the Lawtey school which has gone by several names including the Lawtey Junior High, Lawtey Elementary and Lawtey Community School and their families, gathered to reminisce about their school days. Lawteys first school opened in 1885. It began as a school that offered up to a ninth grade of education. In the years that followed the grade levels fell from K8 to K6, and now the school serves 237 pre-K through fifth-grade students and employs 19-full time teachers. The oldest alumnus present at the reunion was Minnie Redding who at 92 is still very young at heart. She shared many stories. Many other alumni shared their memories as well. Several alumni spoke about their fear of going from the Lawtey to school in Starke. It was a big move to go so far away from family and community to attend and complete their high school education. The small community of Lawtey was so close knit and Starke seemed so far away. People were not rich and so in order to get to school, one alumnus told how they would pick up many of the kids in their pickup truck and transport them to the Starke school. On the other hand, Charles Tatum commented that many students at the Lawtey school did not continue after ninth grade because of their fear of having to go to Starke to finish their education.

Major renovations underway at local bank BY KRISTEN PAZ Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Determined to stand out as a trailblazer in banking, Community State Bank of Starke decided it needs to look the part as well. The main branch office is going to be transformed from top to bottom, inside and out, in less than a year. The $2.3 million renovation project began in October and will change the look from dated to modern. Community State Bank has gained a reputation for being a forward-thinking institution, but our current look does not reflect this, said Terry Vaughan, vicechairperson of the banks board of directors. Once completed, we can truly embrace our slogan: Where Today Meets Tomorrow. Vaughan said the board of directors took about two years from the time the idea was presented, to when the project was approved unanimously. Vaughan said he feels an equal dose of pride and excitement about the changes. Customers who walk into the bank will be quickly and efficiently serviced. Every unit within the bank will be streamlined, to include the teller area. Employees will be better able to network with each other and will be using desks and other equipment more suited to modern-day banking, said Vaughan. Every rural region needs a robust, community bank, and the bank they already trust in the Bradford and Union footprint will be positioned to serve them even better, said Vaughan. The inside of the bank will be more streamlined, allowing customers easier access to their questions, concerns and opportunities, said Jeffrey Oody, president and CEO of Community State Bank. The exterior will be more esthetically pleasing and appeal to all generations. Oody said, most, if not all, employees were invited to participate in parts of the planning and design. He also said it was a priority of the bank to use as many local subcontractors as possible for the work. Funds spent in the area circulate seven times, which is beneficial for the community; also, the taxable base will go up for the local taxes, said Oody. This has an intrinsic value for the school system, county and city. Kenneth Ackerman, project superintendent for Consultants & Builders Inc., is overseeing the renovation. The bank will be moving 40 years ahead, as far as the looks of the building and technology, Ackerman said. The bank will upgrade from fluorescent to LED lighting, which is more cost-effective, and lasts longer. The interior will also feature energy-efficient windows, new wiring throughout, high-definition cameras, cash dispensers, and an updated alarm system and security system, said Ackerman. Rather than use keys, employees will have unique, remote-entry key fobs that log when they are used. Even more secure areas, like the vault, will have biometric screening, which requires a handprint from authorized personnel. The first phase of renovations will begin on the second floor, and bring new offices to house executive staff. The second phase will finish the renovation of the second floor by adding new work areas for operations, and supporting back-office staff. The third phase will add a new meeting room, break room and public bathroom on the first floor. The fourth, and longest, phase includes a revamped lobby area. Employees will be impacted dramatically. They will be uprooted and moved around, some multiple times, said Ackerman. The customers are going to be impacted much less, but theyre going to find one day the door may be barricaded off and they will be directed to a side door. Bank employee Fate Harper said he has no concerns about the renovation, even though he was moved from his office upstairs to work in a closet downstairs. Harper said he loves working temporarily in the small space because eventually he will get a new office upstairs. Community State Bank in Starke is undergoing a $2.3 million renovation inside and out to better serve the needs of its customers.

McKnight Jr. was born in Gainesville, Florida, to Bishop James E. Sr. and Lady Jessie McKnight. As a young boy, he was always serious about the work of the Lord by integrating preaching, praying and teaching into his normal childhood routines. At the age of 18, he committed his life to Christ and served in various capacities including youth minister, deacon, musician, choir president and Sunday school teacher at his local church. In 1985, Bishop McKnight received his call into ministry and later was led to plant a church in Starke. With a clear vision, strong faith, determination and Gods help, he founded Starke Church of God by Faith in March 1987. He studied business administration at Santa Fe College and received his license as an ordained elder of Church of God by Faith Inc. in December of 1991. Bishop McKnight is also president and founder of Bradford County Faith Community Center, a faith-based organization that serves North Central Florida by providing HIV testing and counseling, a recovery program, prison outreach, food distribution and a family literacy program. His dedication and ministry in the Church of God by Faith was recognized by the leadership of the church and as a result, he was recommended as a candidate for Ruling Elder. In December of 2003, he was selected by the National Church at-large and became a member of the executive board. On Dec. 20, 2014, he was appointed and elected by the executive council as the presiding Bishop of the Churches of God by Faith. Since that time, he has launched several innovated initiatives including a National Prayer Line, expansion of new churches, Second Century By Faith, the renovation of the Ocala Temple, a new Deacons Training Program, the Church of God by Faith Theological Institute (CTI) and the Financial Solutions Extension Fund. His life and ministry is driven by the fact that, every soul matters to God. His mission is to reach people and develop lives with a message of life and hope. Moreover, his ultimate passion is to resource and help leaders build strong local churches. Bishop McKnight has been married to his childhood sweetheart, Delois Turner McKnight, since 1978 and they have three children and three grandchildren.

Boy Scout Troop 70 has been continuously chartered since 1937 here in Starke. Many successful men have roots to their scouting life here in town. The list of those who earned the prestigious Eagle rank in Troop 70 is very impressive, including fathers and sons who passed down the adventure of scouting. The Starke Rotary Club is the charter organization of Troop 70 and continues supporting this character-building organization. Cub Scout Pack 301 provides the scouting challenge to boys in first through fifth grade. Their charter organization is the First United Methodist Church in Starke. This program teaches in a fun environment. Campouts, hikes, crafts and outdoor living are just a few of the activities conducted. The pack has a dedicated adult leadership staff that provide a fun-filled teaching experience. In recent years the Scout Hut behind the public library has been showing its age. Troop 70 Scout Master David Lee is asking past scouts to once again get involved. A scouting alumni association would be a win-win situation and help keep the proud tradition of scouting available to a new generation. Those who contribute can expect their donations will remain local, said Lee, promising transparency. The help is needed, especially for poorer families who cannot afford to participate. I can assure you that any help provided would be used on local scouts and not leave Starke. I envision supporting both the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts; we can only do so many car washes. All records will be maintained and open for review. Our adult leaders are volunteers and do it for the boys, he said. We have many needs, uniforms, books, cleaning supplies, and our old camp trailer is beyond repair. This trailer is used to carry camping equipment to and from campouts and storage in between. A complete scout uniform is about $140 per scout; while some families can afford this, many more cannot. Lee can be reached at 386623-1090 and dglee2610@gmail. com. A text is preferred, but he said he is available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about the scouting program. Donations are tax-deductible. Worship service to bring community together This Sunday, Nov. 19, at 4 p.m., the Fuse Community Worship Experience will take place at the Bradford High School auditorium. The free event will feature worship leader Torrie Clark, gospel rappers Pastor Casper and C-Dub, Darius Pearl and the Masters Cast, and Goldchyld.

At every meeting, there are refreshments and a plant exchange. If you like, bring a snack to share and any plants you wish to pass on to good homes.

Thats what Brig. Gen. Trey Chauncey proclaimed to the crowd he was speaking before. He explained America isnt great because he says it is or believes it is, and it isnt great because those in the crowd say it is or believe it is. It is great because of the freedoms all of us as Americans enjoy. Whos to thank for those freedoms? Veterans. At the Veterans Day ceremony at the Camp Blanding Joint Training Center, keynote speaker Chauncey and the assembled crowd had the chance to do just that express their thanks. Those freedoms were won and defended by veterans, said Chauncey, who is the Florida Army National Guards assistant adjutant general for Training, Installations and Programs. The men and women who put the ideals of country before themselves. Today, we honor all who have served and those who are still serving. Today, we say thank you. Today, we stand up for the men and women who fought for us and returned home with the scars and wounds of wars, both visible and invisible. Chauncey said so many of us know someone who has served or is currently serving, especially considering the nation has been at war or in a persistent state of conflict since 9/11. He added, however, that those in service constitute less than 1 percent of Americas population. The military experience is one which is nearly incommunicable, Chauncey said. Even less so is the experience of combat. Those who have not served and have not seen combat, in truth, can never fully understand it. Today Veterans Day we gather to honor all those who willingly and in previous decades even unwillingly have done the often unpleasant work of protecting our nation. We honor all of those who have stood between us and war during times of peace, offering everything of themselves to preserve that very peace. As someone once put it, Those who have given Uncle Sam a blank check for any amount up to and including their lives. Those who participate in combat sometimes receive awards for acts of valor, but Chauncey said such honors are not coveted. Often those who have served will balk at accepting accolades and titles such as heroes, he said. That is because war is an ugly thing. Veterans, I would submit, do not serve to garner such titles for themselves, by and large. Rather, they serve for the sense of duty and an instinctual understanding of the need to defend what they hold most dear. At a recent meeting in Washington, D.C., that involved Army senior leadership, Chauncey and others talked about the Armys readiness for possible future threats, while hoping and praying that peace soon breaks out. Though peace is the desired outcome, Chauncey said good can come out of war, explaining that the good is the preservation of a society that allows for what Sir Thomas Aquinas referred to as human flourishing. Chauncey elaborated by paraphrasing Founding Father and President John Adams: I must study politics and war that my sons and daughters may have the liberty to study mathematics, philosophy, natural history, agriculture and navigation in order to give their children the right to study painting, poetry, music and architecture. Veterans are why Americas great Brig. Gen. Trey Chauncey speaks about what veterans mean to America and its freedoms. Rachel Redfern sings the national anthem.

Knowing what you wanted to do and how you wanted to do it. With a physician for a father, and a dedication to really helping people, local physician Dr. Joelle Simon has made her childhood dream into a passion for medicine that she said she would follow even if she were a millionaire and did not need to work to earn her living. Simon and her family immigrated to the United States from the island of Haiti when she was eight. The family first lived in Maryland, where her father (who was already a practicing pulmonologist in Haiti) did a residency in psychiatry at a Johns Hopkins University-affiliated hospital. When he completed his studies, the family moved to Starke when he accepted a job at Florida State Prison as a psychiatrist. Simon attended Hampton Elementary School, Bradford Middle School and Bradford High School. She then moved south to attend Nova Southeastern University, studying to be a Doctor of Osteopathy (one of two academic tracks one can follow to become a doctor). Osteopathy is a more holistic approach to medicine than MD training, Simon said. We are taught to take the whole person into account and part of this is training in the healing and calming power of touch. When she graduated, Simon did her residency in Miami, then worked in the West Palm Beach area for about four years as a part of a rural health center. She remembered one of the centers she worked at was in Indian Town, where many of the patients and their families were migrant workers. After having her two sons, Simon decided to move back to Starke and her family. I was working and I had my kids in before-school care and afterschool care and was beginning to feel like I was allowing strangers to raise my children for me, she said. I decided to move back home and let my mother help me raise them instead. Upon her return, Simon first worked with local chiropractor Dr. David Sikes in a dual practice for a couple of years, then had her own practice for another two. She then joined with Shands Starke and is now both an attending physician and medical director. In addition to her work at Shands Starke, where she works in family practice medicine, she is also an attending physician at Riverwood Healthcare and is involved in an outreach ministry with Grace Community Baptist Church that helps women who want to overcome addictions to drugs and/or alcohol. Medicine is my great love, but outreach to women is a passion for me, Simon said. To help women grow and improve through overcoming obstacles in their lives is a wonderful thing to do and I enjoy helping any way I can. Although she seems to have enough on her plate to keep her busy, Simon still finds time to mentor and encourage her two sons, who are now in college, with one majoring in mathematics and the other in computer science. She said she also likes to spend a little quiet time reading, either faith-based literature or general fiction. She said she also felt she was obligated to assist her patients in every way possible to take the best possible care of themselves. This has motivated her to reach out to them, many of whom had never had insurance before the advent of affordable healthcare, on the insider tricks of getting the most for their money from their insurance. When New Years Day 2018 rolls around in a few short months, the slate will be wiped clean and everyone will get a fresh start to another new year, Simon said. Unfortunately, this means that the tally of healthcare expenses you have incurred in 2017 which count toward your deductible. Simon said many people did not understand that at the start of the year they began to accrue an expense tally which eventually totals up to the threshold where insurance will often begin paying most, if not all, of their medical costs. She said people need to check and see if they have reached this threshold, or are close to it, and take the opportunity for savings offered by having any needed medical tests or procedures they may need before the first of the new year. This is the ideal time to maximize your plan benefits and save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars out of your pocket, Simon said. Also, people with Flexible Spending Accounts need to check on their balances because the IRS requires that these pre-tax dollars, set aside for healthcare-related expenses, be depleted by the end of the year or forfeited. Taking 15 minutes to set up appointments now could save you a significant amount of money.

Due to tying scores above her, she actually had the 24 th best score, which was 163. Golfers at state play two rounds for a total of 36 holes. Jackson shot an 82 in the first round and an 81 in the second. She just could not get any putts to fall either day, Keystone head coach Billy Jackson said. Although a little disappointed with her scores, she is very thankful for the experience and vows to practice harder over the next year. Ariel Yu, a sophomore at Orlandos The First Academy, had the top score: 135 (68/67). She and her teammates helped The First Academy win the team championship with a score of 565. Jackson placed 41 st at last years finals. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Playing volleyball should be fun. Thats what Union County High School head coach Jordan Windham has preached to her team throughout the season. No matter what happens, go out and enjoy the game. The Tigers had plenty of fun on Nov. 11, rallying to force a tiebreaker set and then defeating visiting Williston 3-2 (29-27, 17-25, 18-25, 2522, 1510) to win a Class 1A semifinal and earn the right to play for a state championship for the first time in program history. It feels amazing, said Taylor Beatty, one of the teams four seniors. Im so thankful we have the opportunity to go to state. Union (14-11) will play fourtime defending champion Sneads (25-4) on Friday, Nov. 17, at the University of North Florida Arena at 1 p.m. Its really overwhelming, senior Madelyn Kish said. This has just been our goal the whole season. We want to play Sneads. Beatty added, I am thankful to God that we have this opportunity to go because that is the only way we have won so far. Their semifinal win against Williston (21-5) wasnt quite as dramatic as their Region 3 championship win over Lafayette a match in which they were one point away from losing 3-1 but the Tigers still had to rally from being down two sets to one. These are my heart-attack kids, Windham said. They get me every time, but this is my dream team. They fight, they give it all theyve got and they dont stop until we come out on top. Union trailed 15-14 in the first set until getting two consecutive kills from Beatty. Another kill by Beatty later in the set put the Tigers ahead 18-15. It was 23-22 in favor of Union when a service point by Emily ONeal put the Tigers one point away from the win. However, a tip by Willistons Arena Acree forced side-out. After another Williston point tied it at 24-24, Beatty had a kill to force side-out, but a service error gave the ball back to the Red Devils. An attack error put Williston up 26-25, but Kish, following a Union time out, had a kill that landed just fair in the back corner to give the serve back to the Tigers. Beatty then recorded a kill in the same corner to put Union ahead 27-26, but another tip by Acree forced a sideout. Union was able to force another side-out, however, and eventually close out the set with Madison Adams serving. A backrow kill by Kish provided the winning point. Kish and Beatty finished with 27 and 23 kills, respectively. They stepped up, Windham said. It was more than I could ever ask of them. Weve been pressing that in practice this week really pressing to have an aggressive offense because we do have such seniority and leaders in our hitters. They both make very good decisions. The Tigers found themselves in a must-win situation as they dropped the second and third sets. Kish said, We got together and were like, This is our last home game and could be our last game forever. We just have to come together right now, play our hearts out and leave everything on the court. If we walk out of this gym regretting something we didnt do, thats going to be the worst feeling in the world. Beatty said she and her fellow seniors Adams, Kish and Brooke Waters were not ready for their volleyball days at UCHS to end. We just dont want that, Beatty said. We want it to last as long as possible.

a 5-2 lead in the fourth set. Later, with the score tied at 15-15, Kish had two kills, while Summer Fulgham had a block to put the Tigers up 18-15. Beatty and Kish had two kills each to help Union stay ahead and eventually lead 23-20. Williston pulled within 23-22 before a kill by Millenia Jennings forced side-out. Waters stepped in to serve with a 24-22 lead. A Kish kill sent the match into a fifth set. On assessing the fourth set, Windham said, We were able to start keeping up with those longer rallies. We were able to work our defense and read their ball a little more. Then we controlled their offense. Our offense controlled theirs because they had to send over free balls, and they had to make those adjustments. Thats where we could get our big swings in, which is something were so good at. That helped a lot with us being to run our offense. Though the season was on the line, it wasnt a reason to forget about having fun. Indeed, in the team huddle before the fifth set, Tigers players could be seen smiling and laughing, showing no signs of feeling any pressure. We just try to make each other smile, Beatty said. Everyone has to show teeth before every set. We try to encourage each other because if one person is down, the whole team is down. Adams, who is the teams setter, dumped a couple of balls over the net along with two Kish kills to help the Tigers take a 9-6 lead in the fifth set. A Beatty kill later made it 11-7 and forced side-out. Union then scored two straight with Beatty serving. Another Beatty kill made it 14-9 before a side-out gave the Devils the serve trailing 14-10. A kill by Fulgham ended the match as the Tigers made school history. She has stepped up this year, Windham said of Fulgham, who is a junior. Shes been on JV for two years. She never played before her freshman year. Coming in and this being her first time playing (on varsity) she has just come a crazy long way and has just stepped up. Beatty added nine service points, three aces, two blocks and 10 digs to her totals, while Kish had 12 points, two aces and 26 digs. Adams had 58 assists and 11 digs, while Waters had 21 digs. ONeal added 10 digs, while Stevens and Fulgham had seven and five kills, respectively. Dear Editor: Last week an answer was given to the professor of Santa Fe College in Gainesville by a man named James Powell of Starke. I had wanted to answer the same letter, but Mr. Powell did a much better job that I could have. How true it is that anyone who sees the lack of freedom in other countries such as North Korea, where a young man had his life taken away for taking a piece of paper, can be overlooked when, the men of the police forces in our country give their very lives, to protect their very freedom, let alone those men and women in our military service who do the same thing. I thank God Almighty, that as a naval petty officer I got chills whenever I saw our American flag hanged as it should be. Mr. Powell put a lot of things in the right perspective. America, where she is being led will not perish by murder, she will perish by suicide from within. I thank God my parents taught me God, Family and Country. If you are not happy here, by all means, leave it! Frank the Baker Dear Editor: On behalf of The American Legion Post 56 Starke and all veterans, we would like to thank all who attended Charlie Schaefer Veterans Park to commemorate Veterans Day on November 11th. We would also like to express our appreciation to those who assisted in the ceremony, the Bradford Jr. ROTC for their assistance with the flag ceremony and the singing of the National Anthem.

Two of our biggest trees in Melrose Heritage Park came down, one into the road, one falling part way, still partially rooted and propped up by branches. Citizens quickly worked to cover the roots of that tree and cut away the broken branches. The tree was doing fine, a monument to survival after Irma, and to our love of Floridas trees. We knew there were concerns about the possibility of kids climbing this tree and falling off, and we wanted to bring in more soil to raise the ground under the high part of the trunk. Then, without warning on Sunday, a Sunday, no less, the tree was removed. Who would do that? It was obvious there was a desire to save the tree. So who would do that? Not someone Why was Melrose tree removed? Thank you for support of Veterans Day Dear Editor: Thank you for printing this dialogue, because it might be informative some of your readers. I am responding to the letter to the editor from Clay Electrics Derick Thomas, published on Nov. 9. I hope he understood I was not criticizing the hard work and the service Clay Electric provided after Irma, given their absolute reliance on electric lines running through the trees. I dont always read the Kilowatt, but I signed up for info about solar power when several years ago I saw in that newsletter an offer to keep a list of people interested in solar when it came. Ive never received any info as a result of joining that list. Right now, most people, including me, cant afford to buy and install solar panels, with or without Clay Electric dialogue is informative Powell letter puts things in the right perspective advice from Clay Electric. Maybe there have been articles about solar power coming to Hardee County, and maybe there was something about putting solar on the roofs of Clay Electrics new facilities. I couldnt find anything about that on their website, nor did any of my friends know about this plan. Im glad to find out they will be making productive use of their new roofs. I wish that for everyone. Solar power can be used temporarily in a home without the distribution lines. It requires a converter, which (Im guessing) people must have if their power is going into the grid (meter running in reverse). It also must require a shut-off valve or something, so that electricity doesnt flow into the grid when the wires are damaged. The cost of solar panels is coming down, and more people will be buying them and running their meters in reverse. What I am suggesting is apparently novel, and outside Clay Electrics current business model. There are problems with this suggestion, Im sure, but it is not rocket science. They could figure it out if they wanted to. Clay Electric could devise a plan to buy solar panels cheaply in bulk like private co-ops do, and install them (with converters) on the roofs of everyone who wants them. Retaining ownership, Clay Electric would continue to sell them the power (this is the stumbling block they would have to fix). During emergencies, the panels would provide power to some limited appliances when the sun was shining, thus avoiding catastrophe. Also avoided: the use of private generators, which are noisy, smelly, expensive, require buying gas, and kill people dumb enough to use them inside. Im glad Clay Electric is no longer pushing the use of coal, one of the dirtiest fuel sources we have. The real switch they are making is to fracked gas, which brings another set of problems, from earthquakes to leaking pipelines to unregulated methane emissions, also really dirty. Because, as the Clay Electric representative told us, the solar component is 2.2 megawatts now, 40 megawatts in the near future. The new fracked gas facility is 1000 megawatts. There is just no comparison. A new power plant will last what, 40 years? So, the real plan is to rely on fracked gas for the foreseeable future. They call it natural gas, same as weve always had. But now it comes from fracking, and causes a variety of dangerous side effects we are just beginning to comprehend.

BY KIM BOX Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor To no ones great surprise, the Madison County Cowboys stampeded the Union County Tigers 50-6 in a Region 3-1A semifinal game Nov. 10 in Madison. Perseverance has been the code word for what is left of the Tigers team. Plagued by injuries, the crutch-and-sling brigade grew in number the last few games of the season. Before Fridays game, they even lost their notso-secret weapon, running back Charles Strong, to a hand injury requiring surgery the day before the big game. Spectators had not been seated long, with 6:05 left in the first quarter when the Cowboys (110) put their first six points on the scoreboard. They never stopped or slowed through the entire first half, running up a 41-0 score by the time the Fighting Tigers Band took the field for its nearly perfect Swinging to the s performance. When the Tigers (6-5) blocked the Cowboys first PAT, spirits soared. But by the last play of the first half, the Tigers had to be wishing the agony would just end so they could begin the long trip home. In a final attempt to score before the halftime buzzer, Alex Perez attempted an overly ambitious field goal, which fell short. It was truly unfortunate since Perez has faithfully stood on the sideline with tee in hand all season long, kicking anything asked of him. He has rarely missed a PAT throughout the season, but did that in this game as well. Most of Perezs missed PATs were usually the holders blunders. Almost every one of his punts was perfectly placed. In fact, this missed field goal was perfectly placed just short. With such a great season, it was too bad he will remember this game as his last. Perez, a kicker who learned most of his kicking skills on the soccer field, will graduate this year. He will only play football in college if offered a scholarship. As if to follow his teammates insult with a slam, Maurice Strong sacked the Cowboys quarterback on the last play of the half. The defense, as usual, expended great effort throughout the game. Amidst tears of nostalgia not bitterness after the game, some seniors were very emotional as their last game of high school football ended. Others were so jovial you would have thought they had won the game. Parents, family, friends and fans, who hung around after the game, were also in good spirits. The pervading atmosphere was one of relief that the season had BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Is everything bigger in Texas? For Keystone Heights High School junior Dan Dodd III, the football stage will definitely be bigger as he will be one of 600 players from across the country showcasing their skills at the National Combine at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Jan. 4-6 in San Antonio. Dodd actually received two invitations to the combine based on his performances at football camps. He realizes how rare such an opportunity is. I was really excited, Dodd said. Players from Keystone dont get that too much. Its kind of a high-level thing a lot of exposure. As his mother, Kristi, put it, He got the golden ticket. The combine measures speed, strength, quickness and football skills, while also providing seminars on recruiting, leadership and improving speed and strength. Dodd, a 6-4, 265-pound lineman, said what he looks forward to the most at the combine is the chance to battle it out one on one with other players.

Anytime you can beat a rival its tough, Bradford head coach Brian Tomlinson said. To do it in a playoff game is big. We wanted one more round. Weve got it now. Bradford, which now hosts Dunnellon (8-2) for the Region 2 championship on Friday, Nov. 17, at 7:30 p.m., broke a fivegame postseason losing streak. The Tornadoes (9-1) had not won a playoff game since defeating Tavares 42-12 in the 2004 Class 2A regional finals. I know its been a while, but wow, Tomlinson said. Im proud of them. They did a great job. Keystone (4-6) is now 0-9 in postseason appearances. The Indians did what head coach Chuck Dickinson wanted them to do in putting together several time-consuming drives, but they just couldnt capitalize on several opportunities, including having a first down at the Bradford 25 in the second quarter trailing 14-0 and having third-and-goal at the 1 in the third quarter when trailing 21-0. Bradfords got a good football team, Dickinson said. We knew we had to control the ball. At times, we did. We just didnt finish. Bradford struck pay dirt the first time it had the ball. Jeremiah Vaughn began the drive with a 28-yard run to the Keystone 27 and followed that with a 7-yard run. Chandler then carries of 5 and 14 yards before he found the end zone from a yard out with 8:17 to play in the first quarter. Zion Barbers PAT put the Tornadoes up 7-0. Keystone picked up two first downs on its second possession on a pair of 3-yard runs by Blake Sanders. Quarterback Adrien Ciena fumbled on first down from the Keystone 38, recovering for no gain. Sanders was then held to no gain by a host of Bradford defenders, including Taz Curry. Bradfords D.J. Mackey pressured Ciena into throwing an incompletion on third down, forcing the Indians to punt. The Tornadoes answered with another touchdown drive. Keystones Carter Semione tackled Chandler for a 6-yard loss that forced Bradford into a third-and-14 play, but Barber connected with Isaiah Crum on a 44-yard pass play that resulted in a first down at the Keystone 21. Three plays later, Barber scrambled for a 14-yard score. He added the PAT to put Bradford up 14-0 eight seconds into the second quarter. We wanted to start fast, and we did, Tomlinson said. It would be a while before Bradfords offense saw the ball again as the Indians put together a seven-plus-minute drive. After a pass interference penalty gave Keystone a first down at its own 34, the Indians gave the Bradford defense a steady diet of Sanders, who had 10 straight carries for 41 yards, moving Keystone to the Bradford 25. The back, who finished with 150 yards on 32 carries, twice picked up first downs on thirdor fourth-down plays. The Tornadoes defense stiffened, with Gerald Smith sacking Ciena for a 5-yard loss, which, along with an illegalprocedure penalty, forced the Indians into a third-and-20 play. Ciena completed a 10-yard pass to Briar Smith, but his pass attempt on fourth-and-10 was incomplete. Bradford drove 75 yards to take a three-touchdown lead before halftime. Chandler, who rushed for 75 yards on 10 carries, started the drive with a 20-yard run and followed that with a 24-yard run to the Keystone 31. Vaughn then had an 11-yard reception before carrying the ball for a 5-yard gain to the 15. An 11-yard run later by Chandler set up first-and-goal from the 1. Chandler scored from there with 1:53 left in the half. Barbers PAT made the score 21-0. Keystone recovered an onside kick to begin the second half. The Indians held the ball for more than six minutes, with two of their three initial first downs coming on Bradford penalties. A pass-interference call put Keystone at the Bradford 10. After a 3-yard carry by Briar Smith, an offisides call on the Tornadoes put the ball at the 3. Ty Friedlin had a 2-yard run to the 1 before Smith was held to no gain by Bradford defenders such as Mackey and Gerald Smith. Keystone was backed up by an illegal-procedure penalty, setting up fourth-and-goal from the 6. Ciena scrambled away from pressure and made his way toward the end zone, only to be held up at the 1 by Mackey and Nathan Davis. After the turnover on downs, Vaughn was tackled for no gain, Keystone Heights High School football player Dan Dodd Bradford running back Tally Chandler (far left) follows teammates Trace Barber and Chris Cummings, who is blocking Trey Horton in 27-7 win in the Region 2-4A since 2004.

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! Gluten induced celiac disease is so common in humans; Is the same true in pets? Fortunately, gluten-like celiac disease has only been proven in one genetic line of Irish Setters. There is presently no scientic evidence that this condition exists in any other dog or cat breed. Soft stool and diarrhea in pets can be caused by many things. So why are there so many grain free diet options available for your furry friend? It could just be a simple marketing ploy. Pet owners often notice an improvement in their pets gastrointestinal health when changing to a grain free diet, which may actually be a response to the decrease in an allergen other than the grain gluten. So how do you really nd out if your pet is sensitive to gluten? Put your pet on a grain free diet. After he/she has stabilized, which usually takes 5-14 days, add a small amount of pasta to the food. If your pet does not experience gastrointestinal problems, they are most likely not allergic to gluten. They may have been allergic or sensitive to something else in the old diet, or maybe the diet had nothing to do with it. The good news for you and your wallet is the savings you may experience by not having to pay a premium price for grain free diets. Please consult your Veterinarian before switching your pets diet.

Thank you for your calls, thoughts, and prayers. May God bless each one of you. The Coleman Family Card of Thanks d Obituaries d You see, those latter things are the things that truly constitute human flourishing because they are the most uniquely human things we can do, Chauncey said. These, along with family, church and community, are what, at the end of the day, make life truly worth living, but in order that these things may be practiced, there must always be, as someone once said, rugged men and women standing ready in the night to visit violence on those who would harm us. So today Veterans Day I encourage you to remember and honor veterans, but less because of what they have done and more because of what their service represents that is, a space for robust civil society and human flourishing. A country worth dying for must be worth living for. Rep. Bobby Payne was a platform guest and spoke briefly as well. Payne talked about how this year marked the 99 th observance of Armistice Day/ Veterans Day and expressed his thanks to those who have served or are currently serving. Today, I stand here as the son of an Army colonel who had the opportunity to spend much of his youth here on Camp Blanding. Im proud to stand to honor our men and women who serve in uniform. We thank them. We thank their families. Our thoughts, our prayers and the gratitude of our nation, our state and our communities are with them. They are the cornerstone of our American character, our liberty and our freedom. God bless our veterans, and God bless our country. finally ended after the major decline it took in the last half. I love you guys, head coach Ronny Pruitt told seniors on behalf of the coaching staff. Thank you for the privilege of being your coaches. To younger players, he said, Young guys, you got great experience. Pruitt promised players that, after the game, he would feed them like kings, so the bus headed for Burger King before the ride home. Even though the game was a loss, Sidney Johnson, Tevon Lee, Jaylon Diston, Hosea Robinson and others still played excellent games. Pruitt, in a rare offering, presented the game ball to one of his senior players, Joe Syzmanski, who scored Unions only touchdown of the game. I normally dont do this, but Im going to give the game ball to someone who has worked hard all season long, Pruitt said. All in all, the uninjured Tigers who could actually play in the game had addressed most of the little things about which Pruitt had been concerned. For a welcome change, almost every penalty of the game went against Madison County, not Union. From the scoring facts of the game alone, it is obvious that something changed for the Tigers in the second half. They only allowed the Cowboys to score nine points compared to 41 in the first. On their first possession of the second half, Madison County kicked a 39-yard field goal. With 1:13 left in the third quarter, they scored a touchdown, but that was called back because of a facemask penalty. The Tigers defense held them until the third down when they scored the touchdown again, adding the PAT. The score was 50-0 with 9:53 left in the fourth quarter. The next Tiger possession was priceless. After receiving the punt at the 24, Lee carried up the middle to the 30, bringing up second-and-4. The Tigers carried 3 more yards on the next two downs. They pushed through the final yard for the first down. You would have thought they won the game. Everyone was so excited about a first down! On second down, the Tigers quarterback completed a pass to Syzmanski after faking to another receiver. Syzmanski ran 30 yards to score the Tigers only touchdown. By this point, no one even cared that it was their only touchdown they were just delighted to have one. A Tiger celebration erupted in the final seconds as they received the last Madison County punt. Their excitement about scoring six points rivaled that of the Cowboys with their victory. Im so proud of you, Pruitt said. Keep your heads up. While Madison County may have backed off a bit and become a little sloppy in the second half, Union County quickly reminded them that they were not named Tigers for nothing. They fought and fought hard the entire game and the entire season. Pruitt said, I told you to keep swinging, and you did. GREAT Continued from 1B UCHS Continued from 5B

Equal Housing Opportunity Union Justin Clayton Todd, 40, of Lake Butler was arrested Nov. 11 for driving while license suspended or revoked and trespassing. He was arrested a day later on Nov. 12 for a violation of pretrial release. According to the Nov. 11 arrest report, deputies were called to a residence about a disturbance involving Todd. As a deputy was heading to the residence, he observed Todd driving a vehicle. He eventually conducted a traffic stop on and arrested him for DWLSR. Todd already had a trespass warning on him for the same residence, leading to the trespassing charge. The following day after a No Contact Order with the victim was imposed on Todd, he was released from the jail. About 40 minutes after getting out of jail, Todd borrowed a neighbors phone and called the victims home. The victim called the sheriffs office. Todd was arrested and booked back into jail on the charge of violation of pretrial release. t ARRESTS t

The 40-yard dash is an area hed like to make some strides. All my measurements and stuff are pretty solid, Dodd said. The thing Id like to get better in is my 40. You always want to get faster. Dodd received his first combine invitation in April while participating in a regional FBU (Football University) showcase in Orlando a showcase in which he received the defensive MVP. He then received another while participating in the FBU Top Gun Showcase in South Carolina in July. It was all part of quite a busy time for Dodd. He participated in camps at such universities as Kentucky and Maryland, where KHHS graduate and former Auburn player Jimmy Brumbaugh coaches. Dodd said he has received interest from a lot of schools, including South Florida, LSU, Kentucky, Boston College and Harvard. He admitted he has one dream school hed love the chance to play for. Everybody in my family is a Gator, Dodd said. Gainesvilles 30 minutes down the road. Wherever he winds up playing, hell be following in the footsteps of his father, who played football at the University of West Georgia. Itd be cool, Dodd said of him and his father both having the opportunity to play college ball. Dodds National Combine experience will make up just part of his trip to Texas. On Jan. 14, hell be a member of the True 19 Florida all-star team that will play against Georgia in Dallas. In all, itll be a great way to start 2018. Kristi Dodd said, Hes not happy unless he has cleats on. Being part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl National Combine is certainly a thrill, but what if Dodd got the chance to play in the All-American Bowl itself following his senior season at KHHS? That would be absolutely amazing if I got to play in that game, Dodd said. There are so many great athletes in that game. Its just crazy. DODD Continued from 5B KHHS boys soccer opens Continued from 5B seven of the ensuing series first eight plays as the Indians moved to the Bradford 26. Crum ended the threat when he intercepted a fourth-down pass in his end zone and returned it to the Bradford 30-yard line. Keystone, which was defeated 33-0 by Bradford during the regular season, avoided the shutout with a 60-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter. Runs of 6 and 12 yards by Sanders and Briar Smith, respectively, resulted in first downs, while an 18-yard run by Sanders set up first down at the Bradford 12. After a 3-yard run by Smith, Sanders had a 6-yard run to the 3. Smith then carried it to the 1, setting up a Sanders touchdown run with 15 seconds left. Alex Cruz added the PAT. Im proud of our kids and the effort, Dickinson said. We played hard the last two games of the year to get a chance to get into the playoffs. The Tornadoes now prepare to meet Dunnellon for the third straight time year in the postseason. Dunnellon, which defeated Bradford 35-6 in 2015 and then 48-21 last year, is coming off a 49-7 win over Trenton. Keystone quarterback Adrien Ciena (center) tries way into the end zone, but at the 1-yard line by Nathan Davis (left) and D.J. Mackey.
