Rob Bradley and Rep. Bobby Payne in Building 1 at the fairgrounds on June 26, he and everyone in attendance had an eye toward the future, when Building 1, Building 2 and the current barn and livestock arena are no more. The $1.5 million is part of a grant that will help fund the construction of new barns, a new livestock arena and a new building to replace both buildings 1 and 2. These buildings exceed 60 years old, so it is time for a replacement, Woodruff said. What really excites him and others is the fact the new planned main building will also serve as a level-one evacuation shelter. It will be complete with all of the ADA requirements, Woodruff said, adding that the new barn facilities will serve as a shelter for pets. The planned 24,000 squarefoot main building will consist of Food Pantry, Communities in Schools a kitchen and shower facilities, whereas the planned livestock facilities will consist of three separate barns for cattle, swine and goats as well as an arena with air-conditioning and heat. A total of $6 million is being sought to fund the project. Woodruff said hopes are that the fair association can receive the additional $4.5 million next year. If so, construction would begin next summer. I have found out from the Department of Agriculture we will be able to bank the $1.5 million from this year for next year, Woodruff said. The plan is to do it all at one time at that point. Bradley said when he initially the fairgrounds and took note of how old the facilities were. He said the time had come to invest in new facilities that can provide shelter during hurricanes and other major weather events, provide a new home for the Food Pantry and to create the best fair around. I think this is going to meet all of those concerns of our community over time, Bradley said. Bradley said it was a tough year to obtain funding, with so many dollars going toward Hurricane Irma recovery and school safety in the aftermath of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. He gave kudos to Payne for helping the fair association obtain the money it did, saying he helped look through all that haze and overcome those challenges. It was not an easy budget year, Bradley said, but I think it speaks to how important everybody is to Rep. Payne. Likewise, Payne gave credit to Bradley, saying, Without him championing this cause, this would not have happened this year. Members of the Bradford County Fair Association are pictured with Sen.

Fain, 30, was incarcerated at New River in June. He was scheduled to be released in July 2022. Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith said to take a peak and see what was happening. He gave himself up willingly, Smith said on a Facebook video post. Smith added that K-9 units had been in pursuit of the escapee for hours. He added that Fain appeared to have suffered multiple insect bites during his night in the woods. In July 2017, Fain was convicted of possession of methamphetamine, grand theft, sentenced to three years on the weapons charge and to two year on the other charges. Fain into custody after the man escaped from a work crew at New River Correctional the previous day. Citizens still seeking answers, equal opportunityBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Concerned Citizens of Bradford County is continuing to press the school district for answers and action when it comes to diversifying its workforce and increasing black student enrollment in advanced academic programs. The problems of diversity and desegregation in public education are more than a century old and remain an issue for Bradford County, according to Starr Pittman. She pointed to the Florida Advisory Committee on the U.S. Commission School Districts in Florida, a report from the mid-2000s that gauges the progress of Florida school districts toward desegregation. While the U.S. Supreme Courts 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision overturned racial Tired of wasting time, Timothy Taylor demands the school board meet in a workshop with the community.See EQUAL, 4AMore dress code changes proposed by school board BY MARK J. CRAWFORD An approaching school year brings yet another revision of the school districts dress code. The code for secondary students seems to be revisited annually, and this year school board members once again found themselves defending sheer garments as an acceptable style. There is a proposed change, however, as a sheer top may no longer be layered on top of a camisole, tank top, halter top or top with spaghetti straps all of which are garments prohibited by the code. Language added last year allowed them to be worn with a sheer garment over them, but school administration interpreted the rule differently. According to Superintendent Stacey Creighton, a longsleeve white button-up was even found too revealing as it showed the outline of a banned top underneath. Removing sheer garments from the code was a way to eliminate overzealous enforcement, she said. School board members including Charnelle Whittemore and Sheila Cummings fought to maintain the style, however, so long as a sheer top is worn over an otherwise acceptable top. That includes sleeveless shirts, width, the language has been rewritten to require that straps on sleeveless shirts be at least two inches wide. for middle school students to be able to wear warm-up suits on game days instead of the required school uniform of a polo shirt and dress pants or skirt. Teams and families raised money to purchase those could not wear them to school. Cummings said participating on a team is a privilege as she argued in favor of allowing a deviation from the uniform requirement. She and others said it also encourages team spirit. Creighton said shirts and jackets normally would be allowed as there are exceptions recognizing academic and athletic achievement and school spirit. The objectionable garment was the warm-up pants. Some school board members agreed with that objection, although Cummings supported the right to wear those as well. That discussion is expected to continue at the next workshop at 5:30 p.m. on July 9. Public input will also be allowed on code of conduct changes during a hearing to follow the workshop. The new code will not be adopted until changes and the public has had a chance to comment. Additional changes have been proposed to the dress code. The district is relaxing rules on hats and headwear, allowing them to be worn during physical education and other outside activities. That does not include time between classes. The statement prohibiting holes in pants has been changed to say, No skin may be exposed four inches above the knee. The same language was added to the section on skirts and dresses, which previously required they be knee length or longer. School board members also rehashed the cell phone policy at the high school after it was once again recommended to prohibit cell phone use between classes. Assistant See CODE, 4A

Smith running for Starke CommissionThe following is an announcement of intention to Good government only happens when people working in it do their jobs and do them well. My name is Shannon Smith and it is with this principle in mind I announce my candidacy to become your next city of Starke District 3 city commissioner. Now, more than ever, our city government is at crossroads with many important issues and decisions on the horizon such as the implications from the U.S. Hwy 301 bypass, infrastructure concerns, and the necessary vision to be the best stewards of taxpayer dollars possible. As a lifelong resident of Bradford County and a businessman in this community with real world private-sector experience, I will bring fresh common-sense ideas to these issues along with the other everyday matters your city commissioners are charged with undertaking. After graduating from Bradford High School in 1992, I stepped into my family business. In 2002, I married the former Kim Hayes who has dedicated her career to improving the lives of children as teacher since 2002. We have two children, Kennedy (13) and Foster (12), who are involved heavily in academics and extra-curricular activities at school and in the community. As a member of First Baptist Church of Starke I have served on the personnel and audit committees and over the past six years, I have coached my sons little league team, and I have served on the board of the Bradford Parents Athletic Association.

CRAWFORD Qualifying for this years election ended at the county level on June 22, setting up races for both the August and November ballots. Someone who could wind up on both ballots is County Commissioner Danny Riddick who is running for re-election in District 4. He has been challenged for the seat by Republican Tom Germano. According to Supervisor of Elections Terry Vaughan, Germanos treasurer, Stasia Rudolph, resigned from the post and entered the race as a write-in candidate last week, forcing Riddick and Germano into a closed primary battle in August. Riddick previously ran as a Democrat but like many Republican Party as the balance of voters in the county tipped to the GOP. That decision may have worked against him as previous Democrat and other supporters will be locked out of participation in the closed primary in August. Only Republicans will be able to choose who gets the partys nomination, and that person could go on to be county commissioner without input from Democrats or other voters. run, the race would have been on the August ballot as a universal primary, open to all registered voters in District 4. Books close to party changes on July 30, so supporters of either Riddick or Germano have until then to list themselves as Republicans and become eligible to vote in the primary. When this happens, theres often a scramble for people to change parties to participate, Vaughan said, and so anybody that would want to do that has until July 30. The winner of the primary will advance to the November ballot depending on whether or not Rudolph remains in the race, Vaughan said. If Germano wins the primary, Rudolph could drop out, making Germano the newest county commissioner. If Riddick wins the primary, Rudolph could remain in the race and give opponents another chance to unseat the incumbent. Rudolphs name would not appear on the ballot, but there would be a blank space where voters could write in a name. Riddick has vocal constituents proposed phosphate mine and the development of an RV park on land they consider to be environmentally sensitive near Keystone Heights. Germano is in opposition to both while Riddick supported the RV park and under legal advisement will not comment on the mining application on which he may be required to rule. County Commissioner Kenny Thompson is running once again as a Republican hoping to win a second term on the board. He is facing two nonpartisan challengers, and Vaughan said this automatically places the race on Novembers ballot. Every voter in District 2 will make their selection. Running against Thompson are Jamie Clemons and John Crawford. District 2 will also be selecting a school board member to replace Charnelle Whittemore, who is stepping down when her abbreviated term is complete (she ran to complete Stacey Creightons term when she ran for superintendent). The race is between Gayle Shuford Nicula and Jeremy Pilcher, and as a nonpartisan race, all voters in the district can choose. With just two candidates, the race will be decided in August. School Board Members Sheila Fayson Cummings and Erica Mains Reddish were unopposed at the end of qualifying week and will hold their seats representing Districts 1 and 5 for another four Yvonne Hayes Hinson Shannon SmithBY DAN HILDEBRAN to run against District 4 County Commissioner Danny Riddick, now has a second opponent: the same woman who donated $1,000 to Germanos campaign. the race as a write-in candidate. and Riddick both running as Republicans, the primary was open, allowing any registered voter within District 4 to vote in the race. However, Rudolphs action closed the primary, locking out all non-Republican voters. Riddick said he does not know Rudolphs motives, but said the effect of her write-in candidacy is to disenfranchise over 1,800 voters from the August Republican primary. If we represent everybody in District 4, why wouldnt we want everybody to vote in the election? he asked. Im not trying to run him down or run her down, I just dont know. It just doesnt make sense. By doing this move, youve taken out almost half the voters. Riddick is also puzzled as to why someone who supports a candidate as fervently as Rudolph supports Germano, would then decide to run against him. Rudolph says she still supports Germano. I want Tom to win the primary, she said, but if for some reason that doesnt happen, I want to make sure we have options. She, like Germano is an opponent of a proposed phosphate mine in Union and Bradford counties and criticized Bradford commissioners for failing to enact a mining moratorium. She also said Riddick is partly to blame for commissioners overspending the county to dip into its reserves. When asked if her candidacy is a ploy to lock out Democratic and independent voters and help Germano, she replied that her candidacy actually hurts Germano.See RACES, 4A See RUN, 4A
segregation in public schools, there were many more years of real progress was made in desegregating schools across the country. The advisory committees report showed that 16 of the states school districts were still under court jurisdiction after being sued to eliminate racial segregation. Bradford sued along with several other districts in 1970 was one of them, although it was said to be pursuing unitary, or desegregated, status. Pittman said the Concerned Citizens group wants to know more about the districts efforts, men whom they consider role models, including Bradford High School Principal Vinnie Blye, have recently lost their jobs. African-Americans and other racial minorities are underrepresented in employment in the school district, according to the 2016-17 Annual Equity Update. Less than one percent of teachers in the district are black, and there are no black district administrators. There were three black principals before the superintendents decision not to renew Blyes contract. While the district claims it is aggressively the Concerned Citizens group is worried that 25 percent of the student population has no one to look up to who looks like them and the message that inevitably sends. Are the districts claims to pursuing racial diversity disingenuous? Pittman said thats a reasonable assumption given that hires were made prior to the submission of the Equity Update, and then those hires were laid off, terminated or lost their contract a year later. For this reason, we demand an explanation of why the superintendent made the decision not to rehire so many black role models employed with the Bradford County School District during the 2017 school year, Pittman said. Additionally, the citizens of Bradford County would like to been taken to recruit and support African-American professionals working for the school district. In addition to employment, the district has referenced increasing the enrollment of students of color in honors and dual-enrollment and advanced placement courses. Concerned Citizens wants to know the Diversity actually matters, Pittman said, because research has shown that teachers of color are valued role models for all students, especially students of color. Teachers of color are often cultural brokers for students of color. They tend to bring into teaching an understanding of students cultural background and experiences. They also bring to teaching personal experience with an insight into racism in society. Because commenting at board meetings has accomplished nothing, Timothy Taylor said after taking the podium, he wanted the school board to schedule a workshop with the community on ensuring equal opportunity. During that workshop, Taylor said, they want to be helped to understand why certain people Were not going to keep showing up and getting cut off (after) three minutes, because this is a waste of time, he said. If we cant get the workshop on request, I will have to get it on demand. The district has not commented employment decisions. EQUALContinued from 1A Superintendent David Harris said the reason is that if the phones come out between classes then they remain out when students enter their next class. Cummings said that is a classroom management issue and teachers have to enforce the policy and have students put their phones away when they enter the room. Vinnie Blye, no longer the schools principal, was present in the audience and shared his perspective, which included administrators not wanting to students are told to put their phones away. What about those guys over there? they want to know. They have their phones out, too. He backed Cummings argument that the high school campus was just too big to enforce such a policy. And while Harris argued they wanted students to be alert between classes so they can report something that seems wrong, Blye said their phones were a way for them to report what they see. changes related to tardiness and attendance, too. For example, the has been narrowed to mean just that: Perfect attendance means students are in school on time all the time. Perfect is perfect, Harris said. Aside from these perennial issues are the changes incorporated often required by the state that deal with ensuring safety and security in an era where violence is far too common in schools. This includes a zero-tolerance policy for anyone making, posting or transmitting a threat related to mass shooting or any act of terrorism, which is a seconddegree felony. In addition to assignment to an alternative education program, violent or disruptive students may be referred for mental health services. Students who have brought a weapon to school or made a threat or false report will be referred for mental health services in addition to the other consequences. The board must also make some decisions on the kind of background checks it wants performed on school volunteers, including parents accompanying participating in other schoolsanctioned activities. Rather than check all potential volunteers at the beginning of the year by performing a single check that violations, the board may opt to test volunteers immediately before scheduled activities. That would ensure up-to-date results and cut down on the number of checks the district must perform. Board members must also volunteers and for how long.CODEContinued from 1A years.

She added that if Riddick had not switched parties in 2016, all voters would be able to vote in the race. Riddick said he originally intended to change his registration from Democrat to Republican before 2014, his paperwork. The bottom line is for the past three big elections I have voted Republican, he said. I dont agree with what the Democratic party stands for. My dad was a Democrat, and his dad was a Democrat, he continued, and 20 years ago, if you wanted to vote in Bradford County, you had to be a Democrat. Times have changed. Riddick added that Donald him to change his registration, so he could support the New York real estate developer in the Florida Republican primary.

Every year we go through the same procures when it comes to hurricanes and tropical storms, waiting to see how severe its going to be to determine if necessary precautions should be taken. Making sure to keep essentials on hand such as batteries, water, snacks (the good and the bad ones) and, if you are lucky, a generator. I think the 2017 hurricane season was an eye opener for me.

This was witnessed people having to get food assistance at such large numbers or families living in homes that still need repair. I wanted to just bring to mind a few tips to consider when keeping your food safe and knowing when to throw away items. Stock up on plastic wrap, zip lock bags, aluminum foil, disposable pans and utensils. These items will come in handy if the power is out for an extended amount of time. Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes are good to keep on hand if running water becomes an issue. Frozen food will keep safe in an unopened freezer for 48 hours when the power goes out. Stock up on nonperishable foods and water. Purchase items you enjoy eating but also items like instant cereal, dry milk and soup mixes. Pick out some foods that will cheer the situation such as cookies or fruit snacks. Remember with any food item: If you are unsure if it is safe throw it out! Store enough water for at least a three-day supply per person. Purchase gallon-size containers, or to save money, if you have some around the house, Dont forget about your pets; they need just as much water and food as well.

CRAWFORD Further results on the Florida Standards Assessment and end-of-course exams tend to disappoint, with sometimes sharp declines measured, but there were also examples of progress. MathThis years third-grade group performed comparably to the state average on FSA math, nearly matching the state score. Sixty-three percent performed at or above grade level, meaning Level 3 or above, which was 1 percent higher than the state average. Bringing up the average were Lawtey, Brooker and Hampton elementary schools, which had 76 percent, 72 percent and 68 percent of their thirdgrade classes scoring Level 3 or higher.

He is one of approximately 30 youth who attended Santa Fe Colleges June 18-22 College for Kids program in Starke. LaFollette was no stranger to the program when he showed up Jr. College for Kids six years ago and has since moved up to the older College for Kids. Jr. College for Kids is for rising College for Kids is for rising sixth-10th-graders. Just the variety of classes, LaFollette said when asked what appeals to him about the program. All the classes Ive taken were really fun. He especially liked the fact that this years program offered a Chess Club class. Ive always loved playing chess, but I dont usually have a lot of people to play with, LaFollette said. that occurred in CSI: Starke, a class that is offered most every year and is taught by a member of the Starke Police Department. This years course offering included a number of arts and crafts classes, such as Cool Sculptures, Jewelry Design, Fun with Color, Wood Crafts and Pen and Paint. Great Wild World had children exploring, through projects, the great, wild world around them without leaving Starke, while, as its name suggests, Board Game Inventions had students creating their own board games. They have a variety of different subjects that you can take classes for, LaFollette said. Sometimes, those, like LaFollette, who return year after year are not students anymore. Simone Hudson, for example, a recent Bradford High School graduate, worked as a program aide something shes been doing since she aged out of the program. Its just fun helping kids, Hudson said. Theyre learning new things. All the classes are really fun. Hudson remembered enrolling in the program as a student for grade year. Some of the classes she really enjoyed were taught by Bradford Middle School art teacher Sheryl Dixon and had her making such things as jewelry and pillows. I wasnt sure how I would like it, Hudson said, but I ended up loving it. Thats why Hudson encourages children to give the program a chance. I recommend that they try it, she said. You can learn a lot of new things. Santa Fe College in Starke offers summer programs every year for youth. The Jr. College and College for Kids programs are accompanied by Exploring Science programs. The college also offers separate art and LEGO robotics programs.

Auto Accidents Work Injuries Headaches Neck and Back Pain Back & Neck Pain Clinic early so that we can work out and make corrections before the real event actually comes. Shuford said it has been predicted that this could be a bad hurricane season. Then Tropical Storm Alberto arrived prior to the start of hurricane season, which certainly seemed to give credence to those predictions. So far, though, not much activity has been observed in the Atlantic Ocean, though morethan-normal activity has been said. Shuford said predictions dont always come to fruition, of course, but they are based upon the knowledge of experts and should be heeded. We should pay attention to them, Shuford said. Plan for the worst. If we have an easy season, fantastic, but we want to be prepared. Likewise, Shuford hopes citizens of Bradford County pay attention to emergency management recommendations, including seeking shelter away from home. When we issue an evacuation order, we want people to understand we do not come to that decision without a great deal of consideration being given to what the impact of that is going to be, Shuford said. I want the public to trust when we give that evacuation order that it is their safety we are concerned with. Shuford said peoples lives are the number-one concern of emergency management and the number-one concern of the Bradford County assumed control of emergency management. Sheriff (Gordon) Smith has taken an approach to emergency management coming under his command as one more tool for us to just take care of our citizens, Shuford said. Re-inventing the wheel is not the goal Shuford said the goal of scrap the existing emergency management operation and start over. Rather, its to build off the existing foundation and constantly evaluate how emergency management can best serve the needs of Bradford Countys citizens. We certainly are looking at how can improve on what was already existing, Shuford said. One improvement should be the availability of the entire approximately 100 members, Shuford said, explaining that it should allow for a better initial response to an incident and better allow for handling an incident as it develops. I think were going to be more attentive and be able to be on top of incidents as things evolve and problems arise, Shuford said. I think were going to be able to deal with those directly and a lot faster. Our response capabilitys going to be a little more immediate. Shuford said dealing with a hurricane or other emergency there are no longer two separate agencies on different computer networks now trying to work emergency management was on the countys computer network, which was different from that of Also, Shuford said having BCSO staff involved will allow for breaks for him and Sullivan as well as provide better aroundthe-clock coverage. Wendy and I are certainly going to have oversight and control over the operations center as far as making sure we follow all the required steps from the state and the feds and looking out for the interests of the county, Shuford said, but its not practical to believe that one or the other of us can be here 24 hours a day for an extended period. Thats why were training other staff within the organization to help us and be there and certainly be able to to have down time. We have to have rest and recuperation time. This is going to allow us to be able to do that and then maximize the time that we are here and functioning so that it becomes a fully functional, 24hour operations center. Emergency management inmate work crews at its disposal for response and recovery efforts. and distribute sand bags prior to Hurricane Irma worked well. That was a fresh idea, Shuford said. I think the way we did that then is how were going to continue to do that going forward. Excited about job, team and mission Since he decided at the age of 19 to become a police years to law enforcement and public safety. Taking on the responsibilities of emergency management is a new challenge. I do want to be successful, Shuford said. I do want to have an emergency management program for our public that is no less effective than the best emergency management program on the planet. He doesnt have to go it alone, of course, but a successful emergency management program is more than him, Sullivan and the rest of the BCSO staff, he said. It also consists of the As Shuford described it, its a combining of forces to create one phenomenal response organization. comes under the sheriff, he said, but it does mean that were all focused on the same mission. As such, a motto along with an emblem was created: One team. One mission. I think that sums up what we believe emergency management is, Shuford said.

Well, Hazel Wall of Lake Butler didnt want a fuss made over her, but she eventually agreed to what turned out to be, in her words, a real big blowout. was a way of honoring God. Its not about me, she said. Its Gods goodness to me in letting me live this long and blessing me like he has. Thats what it was a celebration of Gods goodness to me. Wall turned 100 on June 25, but a party was held in her honor before then on June 16 at the Lake Butler Elementary School cafeteria. It was quite a crowd, of course, for someone who raised months of age) with her husband, J.E. (now deceased), and has great-great-grandchildren. In speaking about the photo taken of all the family members in attendance, Wall said, It must have looked like an army. It was just enormous. I dont know how many are in the family now. The family would be larger if Walls siblings were still alive. However, despite being the oldest of seven children, she is the only surviving child of Leo and Nellie Hoffman. If you didnt know Wall was 100, you might have a hard time believing it. She lives on her own and cares for herself. Her only limitation, really, is the result of a stroke, which has left her needing a walker for assistance in moving from place to place. I dont ever feel bad, Wall said. Sometimes I get tired, but thats just normal. I can still read without glasses. Ive still got all my teeth but two. One time, years ago, they wanted to take out my wisdom teeth that was about 30 or 40 years ago but I didnt want them to. They werent bothering me. They still dont bother me. Wall said shes been up and down and all over the place in her long life. It began in Arcadia, where she was born. Her family later moved to Fort Myers. She parents had on her life. My mother taught me when I was very young that God was everywhere, Wall said. I grew up knowing that, and I was never afraid of the dark or anything. Daddy he taught us how to love and how to be honest and how to live. He was just super. He was a carpenter. He never had much money, but he never needed any. He was always happy. Wall said her father whistled while he worked. I havent heard a man whistle in years, she said. I think theyve forgotten how. Wall was 13 when her family moved to Gasparilla Island. She said it was like living in Heaven. There couldnt be a better place to grow up than that island, Wall said. It was idyllic. It was while she was a student at Punta Gorda High School that she met the man who would become her husband. The right man When Wall saw J.E. (John Edward), she saw a good-looking boy who did well at school and was a leader at the school. He was different from the other boys shed been around. I guess I had always had in mind what I was looking for because all the other boys that I had ever dated didnt really mean much to me, Wall said. J.E., however, never seemed to notice Wall. Then, at a party at which students were playing J.E. selected Wall and kissed her under a bridge. Immediately after the party, things went on as before, Wall said. J.E. didnt talk to her at school, didnt pay any attention her out on a date, she found out why. He didnt have any transportation, Wall said. He had to ride his bicycle to school 7 miles, and then 7 miles home. He was very poor. Yet J.E. told a friend of his that was played, he met the girl who would be his wife. When the two From that night on, we knew we were meant for each other, Wall said. When they married, Wall and J.E. were involved in several businesses. They had a general store in Lawtey, a hardware store in Alachua and built and operated the Bradford Motor Court. J.E. also worked as a realestate broker. We tried just about everything, Wall said. in this area: daughter Wanda Clifford and sons John Wall IV, Michael Wall, Stephen Wall and Wayne Wall. J.E. died in 2010 at the age of 93. That was after 73 years of married life married to the right man, Wall said. Wall, when thinking back on those years, said, Id say that it was a happy marriage. Of course, we were in the real world and had a lot of ups and downs like everybody else, but we never had any problems with each other. Life on her own Though she was sad about J.E.s passing, Wall said as time went on, she learned to enjoy the time she had to herself. For one thing, shes been able to spend more time reading the Bible. Ive studied it and read it and taught it a lot through the years, Wall said, but lately, since Ive had more time with it and not all the distractions I had before, its meant a lot more to me. Though her mother taught her that God was everywhere and believed in what was recorded in the Bible, Wall didnt attend church as a child until her family moved to Gasparilla Island. She accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior at the age of 13. Now, Wall leads an adult Bible study group every other Tuesday at Worthington Springs Morningstar Baptist Church. Weve been going through the Bible one chapter at a time Wall said shes amazed those who attend the class still want her to teach. I thought they wouldnt want me because most of them in the class are young enough to be my grandchildren, she said. breakfast and catching up on whats going on in the world. She said she usually wakes at 7 a.m. and eats such things as oatmeal or cereal with bananas or Craisins on top. Sometimes meals are accompanied by juice and coffee. I have my coffee every morning and have had it every morning since I was about 15, 16 years old, Wall said. Shell watch TV for 30-40 minutes, but thats mainly to going to be like. For her news, she prefers to read The Wallstreet Journal, which she subscribes to. I go through the A section every day because I want to know whats going on in the world, Wall said. I might be the only old lady in town that reads The Wallstreet Journal. After getting dressed, Wall will do some chores around the house. She has someone come in once every couple of weeks to tend to the things shes not does everything else. Wall said she loves to do the laundry and looks forward to her trips to the grocery store. Most every evening, if I dont go to the grocery store that day which I do once a week I go for a walk down to the corner and back to get a little bit of exercise, she said. Wall enjoys cooking. She makes items for covereddish dinners at her church on Wednesday nights, saying people enjoy her dumplings and cornbread. Though she said shes never come across any foods she doesnt like to eat, she understands the importance of a balanced diet. Her plates always have fruits and vegetables. Its probably a better diet that even the people in the nursing homes get, Wall said. Some of Walls time is spent corresponding to family and friends by writing letters. She has especially enjoyed writing to a 12-year-old boy whom she heard play the piano at a recital. She told the boy she was going to write him a letter to express just how much she enjoyed his performance. The boys mother said, Well, if you write him, hell write you back. I really wasnt expecting that, but he does, Wall said. He writes me. I just get the nicest letters from him. Wall said she goes through a lot of stationery and postage, letters via email. Shes seen a lot of technological advancements in her day, but she never took time to become familiar with computers. I was kind of slow to catch on because I didnt realize everything was going to go on computers, she said. Wall has become resigned to learning how to use a cell phone due to problems she was having with her landline at home. Her use will be limited. Im going to learn to use it enough to where I can call somebody on it, accept a call, take a picture and receive a picture, she said. All the other things I probably wont do. Beyond 100 Wall said she doesnt want any more big to-dos like she had for her 100th birthday. That party had such a large turnout, it was hard to talk to everybody. Small I would rather have two or three little ones and have time to visit with everybody, Wall said. She doesnt give thought to any more birthdays. Wall said, I know Im not going to last very long, adding, I dont dread dying. In fact, I look forward to that. I wouldnt like to have to lay in the bed and be sick for a long time and have to be waited on, but I dont believe thats whats going to happen to me. I think the Lord will just pick me up some night when Im sleeping and take me home. Wall is quick to add, however, that shes not trying to take advanced age, she still worries about the effect her death would have on loved ones loved ones she wouldnt be around to help anymore. I cant bear the thought of not being here if they need me, Wall said. Other than that, she views her life as one in which she had the chance to do everything she wanted. The only thing shed like to do is to be able to go back and re-live some moments, relying upon the experience that comes with 110 years of life. You gain a little bit of wisdom as you grow, Wall said, but if you had that wisdom when you your life. Still, Wall has no complaints. That comes from knowing, thanks to the teaching of her mother, that God is everywhere and in control of her life. The Lord just blesses me, Wall said. Hazel Wall, pictured at her Lake Butler home, recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Five children, 14 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, 34 great-great-grandchildren and accompanying spouses make for quite a family gathering. Hazel W all is pictured front and center at her 100th birthday party. In regard to the large family gathering, she said, It must have looked like an army.
Thursday, June 28, 2018 Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section 5B Large crowd helps Friends of NRA raise $36,000 BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer A lot of friends showed up at the Gov. Charley E. Johns Conference Center in Starke, with 370 attending the 12th annual Starke Area Friends of NRA banquet on June 15. Attendees bid on items in silent and live auctions and participated in games of chance to win various prizes, helping the organization raise approximately $36,000 after expenses. One item that was part of the live auction was a Robert E. Lee her deceased husband, Malcolm, who was a big supporter of Starke Area Friends of NRA. Almost $7,000 was raised on bids on ammo cans, one of which Patrick Eldridge, the NRA Florida, explained that money programs in the state it was raised in as well as national programs, a local level. Eldridge cited a couple of programs, such as School Shield, which addresses school security, and Eddie Eagle, which provides gun-safety education to children. Morgan Reddish, vice chairman of Starke Area Friends of NRA, said the banquets, for example, have helped the organization donate $5,000$10,000 to the Bradford County 4-H program each year. One year, Starke Area Friends of NRA bought all the guns and ammunition for the 4-H shooting clubs. A lot of people like that, Reddish said. The moneys going to people they know. Starke Area Friends of NRA banquet he went to was attended by 45 people. Now, tickets are hard to come by.
