Johns has taken that to heart and has spent the past 50 years devoting time to help make Shands Starke Regional Medical Center the best it can be as a member of the hospitals auxiliary. In recognition of those 50 years, which have consisted of more than 70,000 volunteer hours, she was presented with two commemorative clocks at the auxiliarys June 25 installation banquet. clock from Shands Starke CEO John Emery, she received the second from her fellow auxilians, with Mary Ann Andrews saying, We want to make sure shes on time wherever she goes, so we gave her another clock. In response, Johns said, If you did as much as I do, youd have to be late some of the time. Emery, who became CEO at the start of the year, said, I feel extremely, extremely honored and lucky that Im here this year because this is the 50th year that Linda has been serving as a volunteer for our organization. Thats just incredible. Johns smiled and said, I was 3 when I started. Emery said Johns dedication and efforts inspired the hospital as a whole. It drives everyone who meets you to be better at what they do, he said. Johns said she is part of a team and expressed her thanks to all those in the auxiliary. Weve got amazing volunteers, Johns said. Ive said it before, but I cant thank you enough for all you do for our hospital. Without all of you, we wouldnt be able to do the things that we do here. A heavy burden doesnt fall on the shoulders of just a few, Johns said. In fact, she said the auxiliary even gets help from those who arent a part of the organization. There are a lot of people in the business of volunteering, Johns said. Perhaps what is more amazing is that there never seems to be a shortage of these people. Our communitys most precious resource is the people that serve in the community. Johns also accepted an award which Emery presented for the auxiliary as a whole from Bradford Countys FFA program, thanking the auxiliary for its support. Longtime dedication Andrews presented a brief history of Johns involvement with the auxiliary, saying, Shes seen many changes over the years. Nurses come and go, CEOs come and go, and auxilians come and go, but shes still here doing what she likes to do. Lillian Stump was a key with the auxiliary and is a reason why the auxiliary sells food at the Bradford County Fair, Andrews said. Ms. Lillian, I guess, took Linda under her wing and said, Im going to teach you how to do this. She did, and thats how (Johns) got started at the fair, because Ms. Stump used to love the fair, Andrews said. Andrews said Johns would auxiliary board before serving as its president, which she has been doing for approximately the past decade. Through the years, the name (of the hospital) has changed, but the vision remains the same to give back to the community, Andrews said. Shes still dedicated to that vision. I do love my hospital, Johns said. I love the auxiliary. Emery conducted the installation ceremony. Each in her role for the 2018-19 year: Johns as president, Faye Jeannie Moody as second vice president, Virginia Linzy as co-secretary and Andrews as treasurer. Shands Starkes unsung heroes Johns devoted some time to talk about the organization she holds so dear. The auxiliary consists of 28 active members and 25 inactive members. This past year, the members had combined to donate more than 10,000 volunteer hours. Auxiliary members work at the hospital in various capacities, such as manning the information desk.

Special guests included: Charles Peeples, brother of two class of 1956 members, Carolyn, Eldis, the husband of the late Josephine Crews Peeples, Andy and Betty Andrews of Jacksonville, the brother of the late Geneva (Neva) and Betty Jean Moore Zimmerman of Illinois, as well as Joyce Long Dukes and Bobby Winn, residents of Windsor Manor in Starke, with Vicky Spangler, Bobbys personal assistant. Marie Shaw, widow of our late classmate Royce Albert Shaw, also attended our reunion. Billy McGill opened the museum so that all could have the pleasure of touring it. He and his wife, Lonita, joined the class members for lunch afterward. Those attending the 62 nd reunion from outside Union County were: Lowell Loadholtz of Cocoa, Eldred Bivins of of Macclenny, Shirley Guynn Patterson of Jacksonville and Jimmy Brown of Dahlonega, GA. To date, the Class of 1956 has only lost 11 members: G.A. Mole, Jimmy Nettles, Lamar Williams, Gary Roberts, Geneva Andrews Grimes, Kenneth Stafford, Josephine Crews Peeples, Betty June Dukes Cole, Georgene Thomas Allen, Royce Albert Shaw and Ronald Hersey. Nettles, Mole and Williams never had the opportunity to attend a class reunion. Starke veterinarian adds acupuncture to services Dr. Linda Ricker performs acupuncture on Brady, one of her canine patients. Two needles that have already been inserted can be seen at the left of the picture. Telegraph Staff Writer Laurel Norman watched her dog Brady struggle with effects of hip dysplasia, which can affect large dogs as they mature. The 120-125-pound Labrador-bulldog mix was experiencing a decline in his ability to walk, run, jump and play. He had a couch and love seat of his own, Norman said. Literally, he could not climb up on it. Now, more than year later, Brady, who turns 7 this year, acts like a different dog. Norman estimated his mobility was probably 10 percent of what it once was, but said it is now somewhere near 80-85 percent. Thats how well acupuncture has worked for Brady. I was very hopeful, Norman said, but it just was mind-blowing because I didnt realize it would work that well that quickly. Brady is a patient of Dr. Linda Ricker of Bradford Pet Care Hospital in Starke. Ricker, within the last year, acupuncture through the Chi Institute in Ocala. Adding to a patients treatment options Acupuncture doesnt do away with the conventional medicine and technology that Ricker, her husband, Mike, and other veterinarians use, but it can be effective when conventional methods arent or can at least be a complement to those methods. The Chi Institute that I learned at proposed not to give up your conventional training, but to integrate it with acupuncture, Ricker said. They call their form of medicine integrated medicine, where you use the latest technology and diagnostics, and acupuncture becomes another tool in the toolbox for you to treat your patients. Rickers goal was to enroll in a sample program at the Chi Institute, but she unknowingly registered for the intensive program.

Managing Editor A 1980 Bradford High School graduate was recently selected to lead the electrical cooperative that serves Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie counties. Denny George graduated with a bachelors degree in engineering from the University of Florida in 1985, after a twoyear stint at Santa Fe College. After a 20-year career with Florida Power and Light and 10 more years at Duke Energy, George will now lead Central Florida Electric Cooperative as executive vice president and general manager. Like Clay Electric, Central Florida is a member-owned, nonClay Electric covers 14 counties and serves around 170,000 accounts, Central Florida primarily serves three counties, in addition to parts of Marion, Alachua and Lafayette counties. It has around 35,000 members. George competed against 200 other applicants for the job. Georges father: Bill George, who died in 2017, served as Minister of Music at Starkes First Baptist Church from 1966 to 1978, and then as a chaplain with the Department of Corrections for 13-and-a-half years. During that time, he led the music ministry in several other churches, including Madison Street Baptist Church and the First Presbyterian Church of Starke. Not a stellar student Denny George said that he was not a stellar student in high school. We had great teachers, he said of his time at Bradford, I just never took advantage of them. He added that while at Santa Fe, he was training for a career as a draftsman when a teacher in applied mathematics sparked his interest in math and engineering. He went from taking drafting and applied math to physics and calculus at the northwest Gainesville campus. The community college prepared him well for UF, where he specialized in semiconductor physics. George, who has been involved with the educational foundations in Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie counties for years, said that when he talks to young people now, he tells them that even if they dont do well in high school, they can still get a college education and a rewarding career. If I can do it, anybody can, he said. Coming out of UF, George thought his future was in computers and semi-conductors. He even did a co-op in the R&D lab of Harris Semiconductor before graduating. However, 1985 was not a good year for the industry, and the only responses he got to his resumes were from utilities. While working at FPLs Palatka operation, he met his future wife Hallie on a blind date. Hallies cousin worked with George at the utility. During his last 10 years with FPL, George worked at the companys corporate headquarters in Juno Beach, in northern Palm Beach County. He completed his FPL career with a one-and-a-half-year term as the companys strategic communications manager. Return to northern Florida However, both he and Hallie had been looking to return to northern Florida. He said that friends tipped him off to opportunities with Progress Energy, which up until 2000 was Florida Power Corporation. In 2012, Duke Energy acquired Progress. He said one reason he wanted to return to northern Florida was to be with his aging parents. He added that during his 10 years working in South Florida, the area became crowded and congestion continued to worsen. commuting from Stuart to Juno Beach, I was the only one on the road, he said. Ten years later that same commute was pretty congested. At Duke, George was a senior account executive, serving some of the utilitys largest customers. He said that Duke Energy encouraged its employees to get involved in their communities, and that was a direction George took to heart. During his time in Trenton, he volunteered for the educational foundations in the Tri-County area, in addition to the areas three chambers of commerce. He also served as president of Friends of Children: the support organization for Florida Baptist Childrens Homes. George is also the interim worship leader at First Baptist He said the relationships he 4B Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Thursday, July 5, 2018 Roof Leaks Re-Roofs Shingles Metal Low Slope Mobile Home Commercial Lifetime Roofs Siding Rotten Wood Replacement FREE ESTIMATES Locally Owned www.LewisWalkerRoofing.comGuaranteed Best Service Guaranteed Best Warranties Guaranteed Best Prices Toll Free 866-959-7663 Bradford grad to lead Central Florida utility Denny George at the Keystone Airpark earlier this year when the Keystone Cloudbusters R/C Club dedicated its established through his volunteer work led directly to the new opportunity with Central Florida electric Cooperative.

Denny and Hallie have four in Seminole County, Will is deployed in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army, O.J. is an engineer at Fun activities, educational enrichment highlight Bright Minds camps Telegraph Staff Writer Every weekday, after theyve enjoyed their lunch, a group of children pretend the Keystone Heights Elementary School water called The Reading the name suggests, read books. No pretending is necessary on Fridays, though, when that same group of children goes outside for a dose of real water fun, consisting of sprinklers, pools and slides. This is what summer is like for children attending the Bright Minds Youth Development camps in Keystone and Starke. On the one hand, they enjoy a number of fun activities and games, while on the other, they are involved in enrichment activities, boosting their skills in areas such as reading, math and science. We try to plan activities that engage, stimulate and inspire them, said Jennifer Jones, the director of the Keystone camp. Full days through the end of July The camps, which are open to children ages 5-16, start at 6 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. each weekday. The cost is $60 per week, so parents dont have to commit for the whole summer (May 30-July 27 in Starke and June 11-July 27 in Keystone). David Bright, who has family in Lawtey, started Bright Minds Youth Development Inc. a variety of ways, such as providing mentoring and tutoring as well as the summer camps. Bright works in Clay County, which is where his summer camps began, but over the years, hes increased the number of camps and has had them in other counties. Of this years 10 camps, two are in Duval County, one is in Putnam County and one in Bradford County at Bradford Middle School. This is the third year the camp has been offered in Starke. Charisma Calloway, who is in her second year as director of that camp, said the camp, which averages approximately 45 children a day, has been well-received. She said parents contact her as early as March inquiring about the upcoming camp and have expressed an interest in Bright bringing afterschool mentoring and tutoring opportunities during the school year. Calloway, a Bradford County native who works at Keystone Heights Jr.-Sr. High School, was seeking a summer-employment working with the Keystone camp. She fell in love with it and was hooked. What makes me stay is I believe that this camp is an allaround good camp, Calloway said. Its affordable, it provides free lunch and breakfast and they still get enrichment. It also gives they get the fun stuff, too. Jones, who teaches third grade at Keystone Heights Elementary instructor and is in her second year as the director of the Keystone camp, which began four years ago. She said the community needed such a camp that would provide a positive experience for children at that time after the occurrence of multiple youth suicides. The continuance of the camps is important in that it just gives another opportunity for youth to have something to do when schools are out, Jones said. My husband and I always talk little extra cooling off as she wets him with a hose at the Keystone camp.
That was very moving for me, Ricker said. I ended up in tears. Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves inserting needles into points along the bodys meridians. In traditional Chinese, meridians are channels that follow the pathway of nerves and through the lymphatic system, carrying white blood cells to I was worried it would cause the animals irritation or pain, Ricker said, but I noticed that they dont even feel the needles go in. The needles are thinner than a hair and extremely pliable. Ricker said animals can be relieved of pain or have a dysfunction improve through the stimulation of meridian points via acupuncture. Its amazing to see how the body has the capacity to heal itself given the right encouragement, she said. Ricker was in the midst of studying acupuncture when Normans dog Brady was hip dysplasia. Norman said she is a believer in Eastern medicine, so she was willing to let Ricker practice what she was learning on Brady. He was the biggest guinea pig youve ever seen, Norman said. He was perfect for her practicing That helped her a lot with her schooling. It was like a win-win situation for both of us. Brady went from multiple acupuncture treatments a week to one or two treatments every month or two. Nan Sharp of Lake City has a 14-year-old dog named Sugar that was suffering from acute spinal vascular infarction, leaving it unable to walk. A neurologist offered little hope. Sugar was referred to Rickers care by the Chi Institute. During the second acupuncture treatment, Ricker had to have one of the hospitals technicians hold Sugar still. Sugar was wiggling more than during the said she took to be a good sign. For Sugars third treatment, Ricker actually got mad at one of her technicians because she discovered Sugar was already in the examination room. Ricker thought the technician had lifted the 70-pound dog by herself and scolded her for it. The technician told her that Sugar walked into the room. I just almost collapsed, I was so overcome with emotion, Ricker said. In a written testimonial, Sharp said, After treatments, my dog walks and runs again. Back to school Ricker said the exam she took in earning her than any exam she took when she was a student in the University of Floridas College of Veterinary Medicine. Just immersing herself back into the world of studies and exams was hard, though. My professor said, Old dogs can learn new tricks. It will take more effort, but they wont forget the new things they learn. That encouraged me, Ricker said. He encouraged me as one of the senior students, shall we say. I was probably the oldest one in my class. Of course, attending classes at the Chi Institute was a major time commitment, which took her away from her practice. Her husband worked her shifts while she was at the institute. Ricker admitted her husband wasnt really sold on the idea of her going through that didnt mean he wasnt supportive. He didnt think it was he didnt have a clear belief in the effectiveness of (acupuncture), Ricker said. He was a little concerned about how much time it was taking. I would go out every night with a stack of index cards and just sit out there with my horses and practice the points on them. He got on board. He actually helped me learn the points by quizzing me. Ricker described her so hes taken a big leap of faith in accepting acupuncture after seeing the results shes achieved. In fact, just recently, Mike offered a pet owner three options in dealing with a pet suffering from arthritis in its neck: pain medication, steroids or acupuncture. The fact that hes offering it as an option is wonderful, Ricker said. Not for every case, but is used regularly Results of acupuncture arent always so dramatic. In fact, in some cases, it may have no effect. It doesnt work on all patients, Ricker said, adding, I will not repeatedly try a treatment over and over that has not been effective. If I dont get a visit, we plan on not pursuing acupuncture for that patient. Acupuncture isnt an option at all for some cases. For example, its not going to help an animal with congestive heart failure. However, it has proven to be superior to conventional medicine in regard to some diseases, especially those of the gastrointestinal variety, Ricker said. Ulcers, gastroenteritis, vomiting those all respond amazingly well to acupuncture, Ricker said. acupuncture that really appeals to Ricker is that it may help an aging animals pain without the use of narcotics and opioids. We can treat our geriatric pets and give them a great end-of-life care without having to sedate them with narcotics or opioids, Ricker said. Thats nice. Rickers use of acupuncture is not limited to treatment alternatives. It is used on every animal that undergoes surgery, helping it cope with pain and helping bring its temperature up postsurgery. Our technicians are very amazed because they used to have to do all kinds of temperature monitoring that would take hours, Ricker said, but now our patients respond beautifully if their temperatures low after a procedure. The temperature responds to an acupuncture point. One patient needed to undergo surgery, but it could not tolerate anesthesia. Acupuncture was used to stimulate the animals relaxation and pain points. When the procedure was he stood up, Ricker said. He was not anesthetized, but he was pain-free during the procedure. Nobody had to hold him down. taught as a discipline in veterinary colleges, including UF, Ricker said. When she sought an internship following every major city in Florida has a veterinarian that offers acupuncture. Jacksonville and St. Augustine have several. Ricker said shed like to complete more advanced training in acupuncture and also has an interest in possibly delving into other areas of traditional Chinese medicine, such as food therapy, herbal medicine and therapeutic massage. For now, though, what shes learned up to this point has been a help to her patients. Its been a wonderful addition to the practice, Ricker said.

6 B Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Thursday, July 5, 2018 about that, she said. We always want the kids doing nice things with other kids. They deserve to have a good summer. Jones also believes it is good to have the camp in Keystone, with Keystone Heights Elementary being a Title I school. The camp provides children free breakfasts and lunches as well as activities that maybe they normally wouldnt participate in, such week, the children went to the swimming pool at Westside Park in Gainesville. The youngest children also went to O2BKids, while the older children went to Skate Station. Sometimes these kids dont get that opportunity to go, Jones said. I had a couple that got to go, and they just had the best time. I dont think at any other time they wouldve gone. Starke campers have an D Ranch. Calloway said, There are probably a lot of kids that havent been around horses and things like that. Thats going to be special for them. provide new experiences for the directors as well. Im an hour away from St. Augustine, Calloway said. I had never been to Ripleys (Believe It or Not) until I went with those kids. No matter the activity, its fun Some things the youth do are obvious outright fun play ing in watcher, playing various but then there are those ac tivities the children wouldnt necessarily think of as fun be cause they are based around ed ucation. That thinking usually changes, though, once they are immersed in whatever activity it is. Take science, for example. You can learn some of its prin ciples while making something fun. Keystone children made elephant toothpaste, which is a way of showing how materials react by using hydrogen per oxide, dish-washing detergent, yeast and water to produce a mass of bubbling foam. Starke children made their own lava lamps, which allowed them to see how some liquids, such as oil and water, dont mix and how some liquids have differ ent densities. They dont realize theyre doing enrichment, Calloway said. They just know, Hey, its something fun going on here. Angelica Ochoa, an instruc tor at the Keystone camp, is all about fun. Last year, she had students make edible germs. This year, she found anatomi cal gummy bears that students dissected. We cut those open, and we ate them, Ochoa said. Ochoa has students play games in which they face the everyday responsibilities of adults paying bills, balanc ing checkbooks or tackling the task of maintaining a civili zation, supplying food, shelter and safety to their citizens. They had to learn how to balance that out as their civili zation grew, Ochoa said. Do I need more soldiers? Do I need to get more food? It was fun. Ochoa likes the fact that she can teach a little differently during the camp as opposed to in her classroom during the school year. We have so many things to cover (during the school year), Ochoa said. Some of the times, the fun things like making elephant toothpaste you dont have time for. Here, anything I cant do in my class room that I like to do I get to do. Teenagers can earn commu nity service hours by working as camp counselors. From what Calloways seen, the counsel ors fall in love with the camp, involvement. Yes, they get community service hours for it, but they come, they get involved with the kids, and they do it all sum mer, Calloway said. The only commitment we require is four weeks. They stay the entire summer. The kids love them. They love the kids. Triston Taylor, a rising senior at Bradford High School, is in his second year of working as a counselor at the Starke camp. He enjoys meeting the kids and helping them maximize their camp experience. What I really enjoy most about it is talking to them, play ing with them one on one and getting to know them, Taylor said. After you show them that you really care about them, then they really open up. They start to play more. They get more in volved in classroom time. Calloway said counselor ex perience will have future ben It prepares them for the fu ture as far as jobs, she said. Even though youre a volun teer, this is your job. I expect you to come in on time, I expect you to have your uniform shirts on and youre a role model, so I expect you to do these things. The older teen campers also get to take on some responsibil ities as counselors in training. They plug in here and there and learn to work with the kids, Jones said, adding, I think it just gives them a little more self-esteem. Something new at camps this year are scholarship stores, where campers can buy snacks for $1 each. Money raised will help fund scholarships for grad uating high school seniors.

Congratulations Bradford High School faculty, staff, and phenomenal scholars! One Team One Dream With Pride, Bradford High School Administration Dear Editor: I have been called a Nazi because I supported Donald J. Trump for president. Thanks, Donny Deutsch, frequent guest on MSNBCs Morning Joe show, for that information. I know what Nazis did to the Jews and other people in the 1930s through World War II, but I searched on line for additional information. I wanted to see what Nazis believed, why Germany, Europe and eventually the US went to war, how Adolf Hitler rose to power and what happened in the Holocaust. I discovered that nothing in my background or behavior should lead anybody to believe that I am a Nazi! Nazis were members of The National Socialist German Workers Party and Adolf Hitler was their leader. Nazis believed in violence and mass murder of Jews, political opponents, and other minorities like homosexuals and gypsies in a genocide known as the Holocaust. Hitler wanted to create a German master race and get rid those who didnt live up to master race standards. Long before Hitler, the Southern Democratic Party leadership wanted to secede from the Union and expand slavery. The Democrats also created the KKK to ensure the preservation of their white supremacy. Thanks to President Abraham Lincoln, he fought against the spread of slavery and then ended slavery; in 1865, a Republican Congress Amendment to the constitution which abolished slavery forever. Liberals like to call Republicans racist, Nazis, fascists, homophobic and more in an attempt to scare, intimidate, shut up and destroy people they dont agree with. Incredibly, when one calls someone any of these names, they are in fact, displaying the same behavior displayed by the Southern Democratic Party leadership, the KKK and Hitlers Nazi party! Pray that this egregious behavior ends and civility returns before someone loses their life. Abraham Lincoln: A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved. I do not expect the house to fall. But I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.
