Damage to the Southeast Third Street home was extensive, however, much of the personal property inside the structure appeared to be salvageable. Residential building up, new commercial slows BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Starke did not see the same kind of commercial construction in 2017 as in prior years with new fast food and discount retailers, but the city and county are seeing new residential development. Most notably in Starke are the duplexes built on State Road 16 by John and Tammy Crawford, a project that proved the need for affordable rental housing in the area. That accounted for six of the 13 new residential housing permits issued in the city. Others were issued for Harley Circle, Bessent Road, and there is a home coming out of the ground now on Christian Street near the public library. More than 30 permits were pulled for unincorporated Bradford County, a few more than last year, and one was pulled for Melvin Street in Brooker. Those in the county included an estimated $400,000 lake home on Southeast 30th Street in Melrose and a $325,000 home in Deerwood Subdivision. The county also saw the only real commercial construction, and even that was primarily limited to a new Dollar General in Hampton. Permits were pulled by Triple S Plumbing and Camp Keystone, but three of the 10 were for communications towers. Instead commercial development proceeded in Starke with remodels like the Dinks frozen yogurt shop on Thompson Street. Elite Automotive set up shop repair cars a vacant garage at 301 and Pratt. Stitch n Time began selling quilts and quilting supplies on Walnut Street in a downtown that is fuller and more of a destination than it has been in some time. If there was a surge at all in 2017 it was in the number of new mobile home installations, which grew from 29 to 41. Twenty-three mobile homes were also replaced with newer models, compared to 13 last year. Nearly ready: This Deerwood Subdivision home was one of the more expensive building projects this year. Builders braved the cold Tuesday framing this new home on Christian Street. Woman hit girlfriend with BY MARK J.

The two were arguing in Minceys light stopped them at Northeast Waldo Road and 53 rd Avenue, the victim said she jumped out of the vehicle and ran toward a gas station. Mincey pursued the victim, eratically pulling her silver Toyota Camry into the parking lot and using it to strike the victim from behind. She said she was hit hard enough that her The report states the two were at the gas station for an unknown period of time. The victim said she got back in the car willingly because Mincey said she would take her home. Instead, Mincey made a U-turn and began driving very quickly northbound, out of the Gainesville city limits. The victim called 911 and reported that she was with Mincey, who refused to stop and let her out of the vehicle. In Lawtey, Bradford County Ottomeyer saw a silver vehicle matching the description from Alachua County at the Fast Track. He pulled up behind the Toyota with his lights activated, and Mincey exited Mincey See FIGHT, 6A

Bounce Houses Water Slides Dunk Tanks Trackless Train Inmate health dominates FDC budget priorities BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Florida Corrections Secretary Julie Jones presented the governors corrections budget to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal and Civil Justice in December, telling lawmakers that inmate health will be a major point of emphasis Before Jones took the podium, Katie Cunningham, Gov. Rick Scotts Public Safety Policy Policy and Budget, told senators that Floridas crime rate dropped 2.8 percent in 2016. Thats a 46-year low, she said. And data just released 2017, there were over 6,000 fewer crimes reported than in are seeing these decreases, even while our population grows. Cunningham added that the states recidivism rate the rate at which released inmates return to prison is at 25.2 percent, an all-time low. Cunningham also said the governors 2018-2019 public safety budget is $5.3 billion, a 3.7-percent increase over the current years budget. The budget also includes a $156 million increase to the Department of Corrections. Jones said the FDC budget focuses on increasing safety for recidivism and increasing She said the spending plan includes $78 million for 476 new positions to enhance mental health services for inmates. Jones said that while the prison population has decreased, the number of inmates with severe mental disorders has risen. Between 2010 and 2016, there was a 51-percent increase in the percentage of inmates with the most severe and persistent mental disorders, she said. The budget also includes an additional $31 million for pharmaceuticals. The current funding levels have remained static over the last 11 years, despite the rising costs of pharmaceuticals Jones told senators. Due to changes in standards of care and increasing costs for infectious diseases we are asking for $11.8 million to address funding shortfalls in our general and infectious disease drug categories, and $19.3 million for the treatment of inmates with HVC (Hepatitis C). The evolving standard of care for HCV in prison is a national issue, and our department has been working for more than a year to ensure our health service bulletins are in line with the new standard of care. Jones said she hopes to reduce the costs of treating Hepatitis patients. We are actively meeting with pharmaceutical companies who manufacture these drugs and have urged them to join us in addressing this critical public safety issue, she said. Jones added that some pharmaceutical companies have already committed to lowering costs. Jones said the agency knows it has around 7,600 inmates out of a total population of 96,000 who are infected with Hepatitis C. She said the governors $20 million request would treat 1,400 inmates a year at current prices, adjusted for anticipated cost reductions the agency is now negotiating with pharmaceutical companies. She said the budget also includes an additional $4 million for expanding inmate workforce training and education services. Research indicates job training in prison reduces recidivism by 13 percent, she said. And for each increase in grade level an inmate achieves, recidivism decreases by four percent. The $4 million will provide an additional 1,600 career and educational program seats. Jones said the agency would also like to put an additional $21 million into maintenance and repair for the agencys 4,000plus buildings, which accounts for around 20 million square feet. This is the largest facility portfolio in the state, Jones said. She added that the money will go for roof repair; the replacement of perimeter fence systems and wastewater and sewer systems. Jones is also asking the legislature for $2 million for contraband interdiction. The funding would pay for technology to prevent contraband from entering facilities and for analyze security threat group (gang) intelligence. Jones said the agency created 2016. Part of the $2 million in additional funding would allow FDC to add 20 additional contract analyst positions in that Cellphones, synthetic drugs and weapons are a growing problem that affect very directly the security of our facilities, she said. Jones told senators that the agency is running pilot programs at Wakulla and Okeechobee that block cell phone use within dormitories. The no-cost test program sets up an electronic umbrella over dorms which block radio signals. We try not to umbrella the entire prison so we dont bleed out and affect 911, she said, but this masks the ability for a cell phone to be used, and only by exception, so the wardens phone is an exception and would work, but they dont work inside that umbrella. She also said the agency is using low-tech methods for interdiction, like plow lines around the perimeter to detect when contraband may have been obtained from the outside, because a lot of this stuff comes over the fence. She said the agency is also increasing searches for its own staff, adding that the budget request includes X-ray machines body cavities for contraband. Jones also requested $1.3 million to fund 20 additional inspector general positions. This increase will reduce the average caseload from 189 to 161 cases per inspector, she said. The department currently has 114 inspectors and senior inspectors. They investigate 22,500 cases a year. The budget also includes $4 million to upgrade the agencys 15,000 workstations to Windows 10. The computers now run on Windows 7, however Microsoft has told FDC that it will not support Windows 7 after January 2020. Many of our workstations are and will not support Windows 10, Jones said. Jones said the agency wants to deploy Windows 10 under a virtual desktop infrastructure, allowing software to remain on a few servers instead of on each individual workstation. The virtual desktop solution allows the department to avoid nearly $9 million in costs associated with the traditional equipment refresh, Jones said. and enhances the security of our data through centralized storage. Reps. request money for Bradford school, fairgrounds, wastewater BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor State Rep. Bobby Payne and Sen. Rob Bradley requested millions of dollars for Bradford County projects for the upcoming legislative session. Bradley requested $39.7 million for a new public school, while Payne asked for $500,000 to upgrade Starkes wastewater reclamation infrastructure, $50,000 to fund a park in Lincoln City, $4.7 million to expand the Camp Blanding Museum, $300,000 to fund Transition House Inc.: a homeless program in Starke and $4 million to replace buildings at the Bradford County Fairgrounds.

Bradley represents Clay, Bradford, Union, Baker, Columbia, Suwannee, Lafayette, Gilchrist, Dixie and Levy counties, in addition to the southwestern corner of Marion County. The legislative session begins on Jan. 9. In other news related to the two lawmakers that represent Bradford County: Bradley backs plan to send inmates to county jail Sen. Rob Bradleys bill that would allow some state inmates to serve up to 24 months in county jails cleared the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee in December. Now, defendants sentenced for one year or less serve their time in county jails while defendants sentenced to longer terms are placed in the custody of the Department of Corrections. Bradley told the Senates Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal and Civil Justice that the Department of Corrections is facing challenges housing nearly 100,000 inmates. We need to lower the number of prisoners the Department of Corrections handles, he said, and this is one of many strategies to accomplish that goal. He added that one consequence of the measure, if passed, would be to lower stress among We owe it to them to be very deliberate in our strategies in addressing that very serious situation, he said. Bradley said that under his bill, counties could voluntarily contract with the Department of Corrections to house state inmates. Counties would be paid up to $60 per day per inmate. Bill would create animal cruelty registry A House bill co-sponsored by Rep. Bobby Payne would create a state registry for people convicted of animal cruelty and would give judges the authority to ban violators from owning pets after their convictions.

County contemplates providing broadband internet service Commission votes to request funding, then retracts request BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Its the year 2018 but Bradford County has never been further from broadband Internet than it is right now, according to Chris Thurow, the countys IT director. Thurow told the county commission Monday morning that theres not a chance that any known provider would come to Bradford County and build the infrastructure needed to provide reliable, high-speed internet to the average consumer, including smaller businesses and rural residents. Aside from the few solutions available to larger entities, Bradford County is stuck with the providers and lower speeds it already has. The reason, according to Thurow, is the end of net neutrality the principle that all equally. Now the money isnt to be made in expanding networks to new customers. Internet providers will make their money as content providers, shaping own products. Basically, those changes have wiped any chances of carriers providing broadband to this community off the table, Thurow said. The carriers are not going to provide broadband to this area, and I challenge any carrier to come before this board and tell you that they are. Those companies want to provide television and other media to customers who already have 100 mbps connectivity. This county is nowhere near that, he said. The only hope Bradford County has is to build the backbone needed to support higher internet speeds, and for that it will need money, hence the point of Thurows Jan. 2 presentation to ask that the county commission submit a request to the Florida Senate for more than half a million dollars in seed money to get started. We need to expand broadband in this community and it seems almost incumbent that government is going to have to do that or were not going to have it in Bradford County, Thurow said. The $575,000 request, combined with $100,000 in funds the county is investing, would be down U.S. 301 to either end of the bypass and down S.R. 100 toward Keystone Heights. Later on they would take advantage of strategically placed towers around the county to provide wireless connectivity. The county missed a deadline to submit the funding request to the Florida House, but Sen. Rob Bradley is chairing the Appropriations Committee and will be presenting it to the speaker of the House and making the matter a priority, according to Thurow. And even though they will have to work hard and appear in front of various subcommittees to get the funding request pushed Commissioner Chris Dougherty, who has been active in exploring internet options, nevertheless said the commission was being asked to put the cart before the horse by requesting funding for a project the details of which have not been fully revealed. One provider he helped introduce to local businesses was Uniti Fiber, and he said he is in favor of the private sector over government providing internet to businesses and residents. I dont think we need to be an internet service provider, and I think essentially that is what we would end up being, is that correct? he said. Thurow agreed that was the case, but the county has little choice, he said. Ive been here 18 years, and Ive been in this business for 37 years, and Ive never seen such a sordid state of affairs of broadband connectivity, Thurow said, adding he wasnt advocating a public over a private solution. Local government has a choice at this time: You can either not have broadband in rural communities or you can undertake it yourself. Thats a fact. I didnt create that fact, and Im certainly not sitting here promoting as a county employee that the county commission get into the broadband business. Im just stating the obvious. Also, the county building the backbone doesnt mean an internet service provider couldnt come along and purchase bandwidth from the county to sell to customers in Hampton, for example. That would be ideal, he said. There apparently have been talks with the city of Starkes management about working with the county. There were no details on Starkes role, but is sounded very much like the city would be in charge of providing access within the city limits. In three years were not going were not going to have service, and the communitys going to be looking at you saying, Why dont we have service? Thurow said. Commissioners agreed the community has already been asking, and Thurow said Bradford County is just getting further and further behind. In spite of Doughertys misgivings, the rest of the board was ready to make the request and voted 4-1 to do so. And then when it became clear they werent under a pressing deadline to make the request commissioners voted to retract the request at this time. The appropriation request was the latest example of decisions the board has been asked to make with little or no preparation, and commissioners dont like it. Another recent example was a proposal to rebrand the county. Thurows intention was to make a full presentation of the plan during Mondays meeting, however the FCCs repeal of net neutrality last month radically changed the information the IT director had prepared to present. Nevertheless, commissioners have had enough of deciding in the dark, so not having more on how the county and city would use half a million dollars in state money to bring broadband to Bradford, the decision to request the funding was retracted. Thurow is aiming to have his full presentation ready for the commissions Feb. 6 meeting. honor of a Labrador Retriever puppy found beaten to death in the backyard of a Ponce Inlet resident.

The victim provided a written statement, but refused to allow her injuries to be photographed. Observing her swollen leg, authorities had her transported to Shands Starke Regional Medical Center for treatment. Mincey claimed she did not intend to hit the victim with the vehicle. She said her foot slipped and she lost control of the car. Mincey said afterward she couldnt hear the victims requests to be taken home because the music was too loud and she wasnt paying attention.

FIGHT Continued from 1A Health Healthy Living: Setting goals One reason New Years resolutions fail is because many individuals dont even know where they are starting. Besides knowing their weight from stepping onto a scale, most people dont know their body fat percentage, cholesterol and triglycerides levels, or how many calories their lifestyle requires. Having a reliable starting point will make your New Years resolutions easier to track and will make it easier to accomplish your goals. Where to start: Weigh yourself. Tracking your weight is a proven weight management strategy. It is important to know your starting weight as it will keep you motivated and allow you to track your progress. Weigh yourself each week and report it on the weight log. Track what you eat and drink. By tracking what you consume each day, you can make sure that youre eating within your calorie goals to maintain your weight. Be honest! Dont forget about the handful of M&Ms or the spiced apple cider you had for a snack. Its okay to have your holiday favorites each day. Use a food journal or choose from mobile apps such as MyFitnessPal or LoseIt. Track your activity. Keep yourself motivated by tracking your activity each day on an activity log. Every little bit adds up and seeing how much youve done can encourage you to do more. Make a plan. Personalize the tips, strategies and advice you receive to set your own plan for a healthy new year. Figure out what works best for you. Share your plan with friends and family so they can be supportive of your goals.
