Comcast bringing highspeed internet to StarkeBY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor A Comcast Business account executive told Bradford County commissioners this week that her company will bring high-speed internet to Starke. The Comcast representative told commissioners that the service will be available with speeds up to one gigabyte per second, with business packages starting at 75 megabytes per second at a cost of around $89 a month. She added that the company will also offer television and telephone service, and that the within 90 days. The company will build the system in three phases, with southern city limits on U.S. 301 to IHOP. Residential high-speed internet could be available as early as May of next year. Chamber of Commerce President Pam Whittle told commissioners that broadband service is essential to further economic development in Bradford County.

You have to have broadband, she said, adding that some businesses have left the area do to a lack of highspeed internet. 2 shot during Starke robberyBY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor Starke police said two people were shot during an armed robbery of a Walnut Street adult arcade business Thursday morning. Maj. Barry Warren said in a news release that police were called to Lucas Games just after midnight with a report of someone shot. There, police found a 30-year-old male victim bleeding from the right side of his head. He was conscious and told police he did not know who shot him. Another witness said two males got out of what appeared to be a dark, four-door Mazda toward the arcade. The witness stated that he then hit the ground and did not observe anything additional, wrote Warren. According to the news release, a second shooting victim told a Starke police detective that he and his two cousins were sitting outside the business when he saw three black, armed males wearing what appeared to be ski masks approach the business from the parking lot. He stated that all three subjects had guns, but only Warren. The victim stated that he had been at Lucas Games since 10 a.m. and won a large amount of cash money during his time there. The victim said his winnings were in a backpack. The investigator later viewed video that corroborated the victims stories. The detective also noted that the three unknown to their vehicle, wrote Warren, then one suspect reapproached the business and appears to take possession of an item, believed to be the victims bag, which contained his undisclosed amount of cash. Regional News Football preview Starke police remained on the scene late Thursday morning at Lucas Games. more money candidatesBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A squirrels bad luck combined with the city of some electric customers without power for several hours on Sunday. The initial 8:30 a.m. power outage was linked to a dead squirrel, according to City Manager Bob Milner, but when the fuse was changed at that location and the city tried to restore power, a portion of the system remained down. We still had a bunch of the phases out, which was very confusing, Milner said. Two employees began riding around the city looking for problems. City Clerk Ricky Thompson, most experienced in the utility system, joined Milner at the substation. They spent about an hour analyzing why they couldnt bring power back to the additional phases. It appears that the squirrel just happened to blow the transformer at the right spot where the two circuits meet, what we call the Vo-tech circuit and the Church Street circuit. As a result, we had a bunch of businesses and houses out, the city manager said. According to Milner, replacing the fuse and a lightning arrester should have remedied the situation, but it did not; it restored power for some customers, but not for very long. When the citys staff was unable to identify and correct the issue, Milner brought in an employee from Gainesville Regional Utilities someone who had already been selected to serve as the citys chief lineman beginning this week after the recent departure of employee Kris Kadlec. It took another hour and a half to locate the problem at the substation itself, then we had to go back out to three different locations on Call Street, Valley Road and Bessent Road and replace fuses at each of those places. When we got all of that done, we started bringing them back up at 2 p.m., one phase at a time. We couldnt even do an entire circuit because we knew everybodys air conditioners were already on. Milner added he thinks the noontime attempt to bring entire circuits back up contributed to the problem. Switching on individual phases cant be accomplished at the substation, however, so workers had to go out and turn phases on, restoring power one street at a time. Once we did that, just before 3 p.m., everybody was on and everything held, said Milner, calling the experience very frustrating. There was no operator error, the manager said, but without assistance from GRU, it could have taken a lot longer to analyze and correct the problem.See POWER, 3A

I see you.While other insurance companies just see a customer, I see a neighbor in my community. Im here to get to know who you really are so I can help life go right. LETS TALK TODAY. Richard S Morris, Agent 14793 US HWY 301 South Starke, FL 32091 Bus: 904-966-0011 Back-to-School Info Fair School Board, District 2Pilcher running for the studentsBY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor Other than a few years when his family lived in Union County, Jeremy Pilcher has lived his whole life in Bradford County. The 39-year-old said he is running for Bradford County School Board primarily because he has three children in the school system and wants the areas public schools to offer them and other Bradford County students the best opportunities possible. Ive got one at the high school, one at the middle school and one starting pre-K this year, he said. My daughter at the high school is active with majorettes. My son plays baseball, and the youngest plays baseball, too. Pilcher graduated from Bradford High School in 1997, his brothers also graduated from BHS, one in 1993, the other in 1998. Jeremy was student council president his senior year and graduated with honors. After I graduated, I was working at a hardware store up was in August of 1998. In 1999, I started working for the sheriffs I wanted some type of career in public safety. Then I went to EMT school in 2000 and started working some part-time jobs at rescue in Bradford and Union. In 2000, Pilcher landed a fulltime job with Alachua County Fire-Rescue. He remained there until 2004, when he started in Jacksonville. Ive been up there ever since, he said. Now Im a lieutenant. Im on a rescue unit in the northwest part of Jacksonville. I enjoy it. Its a good career. He said that two years ago, when the District 2 seat became open, he wanted to run for it, but did not want to run against his friend Charnelle Whittemore. When Whittemore decided not to seek re-election, he decided that it was his time to run. I wanted to do it because I have three kids in the system, he said. My daughter has got four more years, my middle sons got six more years, but my youngest has his entire school career before him. Hes starting in pre-k now, and hes going to be working all the way through. We want to stay here and keep our kids in the same system that I went to school in, and my brothers and my wife were in. Its not a bad school system. There are some things that Everyone wants to see school grades improve, but that doesnt mean we teach them just to pass these standardized tests so that we get our A school. Pilcher said school safety is a big issue. He said that part in school safety drills in Jacksonville. He added that it is important that teachers take part in the drills. Ive been a part of school safety training programs, he said. Ive had a four-hour class and I had an eight-hour class on active shooters. Pilcher also said that as a member of a union, he understands how teachers feel ways to get the teachers more money, he said. Im part of a more money, and we argue with the city. So, I would be all for trying to get these teachers more money. He said that higher teacher pay will result in better staff morale. Im not saying its horrible right now, but Id like to see teachers stay around here, he said. He also said that if the system does a better job retaining teachers, it can produce more homegrown administrators. If they have the education to be administrators and they want to do it and they apply, he said, why dont we try to keep those people within the system?Nicula: This is my communityBY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor Gayle Shuford Nicula said she has been thinking about running for Bradford County School Board for eight years. She wanted to run two years ago, when Stacey Creighton gave up the seat to run for school superintendent. However, when Charnelle Whittemore announced she was running, Nicula decided to wait. When she found out Whittemore was not seeking re-election, she concluded that her nearly decade-long wait was over. Bottom line, this is my community, she said. Ive been thinking about it for a long time, and I just want to try to make a difference in our school system. She said her grandchildren are now approaching school age. My roots are here in Bradford County, she said. Born and raised here, a lifelong resident of Lawtey. Nicula said she has already compiled some experience on school advisory committees. When her children were school age, she was on a school advisory committee and in the parentteacher organization. She was also a member of the Bradford County Education Foundation. Now Im a member of the School Health Advisory Committee, she said. We meet every other month and so Im involved in that. Nicula said that if elected, she wants to visit schools often to get on. I just want to see what goes on because my education and my background is medical and has nothing to do with school. Although her background is not in education, she said she has always had a love for learning. at Lawtey Elementary School to attend sixth, seventh and eighth grade at Bradford Middle School. She graduated from Bradford High School in 1977 and completed an associates degree at Lake City Community College before starting her nursing career. I went back to school in 1988, to the University of North Florida for my bachelors degree, and then got my masters degree at the University of Phoenix in Jacksonville in 1999, she said. In 2003, she hit the books again, this time at the University of Florida, where she completed coursework that prepared her to nurse practitioner. She has worked in the UF Health system for 38 years, starting out at Alachua General Hospital but working mostly in Starke. For the last 10 years, she has worked for Shands Medical Group. Nicula said many parents are concerned about school safety and she is monitoring the school systems guardian program. She also said school uniforms are a hot topic now, with parents shopping for school clothing. Nicula also said that teacher recruitment and retention are important matters, not only for Bradford County but for many school systems. So many people think Bradford is the one county that has the teacher shortage, she said. Well, thats not true. I have spoken to several people from Union County and Clay County and they have shortages. Its just basically all over. Nicula, who has put her maiden name of Shuford in her campaign literature, said she has had to answer some questions on the campaign trail about running as Gayle Shuford Nicula since two years ago the superintendent ran under the name Stacey Shuford Creighton. Our grandpas were brothers, so I dont know whether that makes us third cousins, but its like a distant cousin, she said. Nicula described her relationship with the superintendent as friendly but not particularly close, and she said she is using the Shuford name. Its the name on my drivers license, she said. Its the name on my Social Security card. In addition, she said that although some people may not know her, they may know her parents or her grandparents and she wants to connect with as many people as possible. This is the thing, she said. Some people may say: Who is Gayle Nicula? And some people may say, Thats Valaria Shufords daughter, George Shuford, Mrs. Shuford who worked at the courthouse. Yeah, I know Mrs. Shufords daughter or yeah, I knew her grandpa and grandma back in the day. Jeremy Pilcher The city is down to two and a groundman, Milner said. The city really needs three trained linemen, one serving as lead, plus two apprentices. Becoming a lineman is a three-year process that includes classwork as well We are in dire need, Milner said, pointing out one of the citys employees is two years away from retirement. Hiring additional apprentices now would not get the city up to three Until there is a more permanent solution and Milner said he is preparing a plan for the city commission to consider the city will rely on GRU for a lead lineman or foreman and two more linemen every day, paying GRUs hourly rate. Both of those lead linemen live in Bradford County and will be in charge of the citys electric crew, Milner said. The contract workers have a schedule of pole and equipment replacements and other projects and were working Monday afternoon to complete a project at Bradford High before students return to school on Monday. They will be working on those projects while the citys crew manages the daily service calls. Loren Red Turner is now the citys lead lineman, but GRU will be designing the overall scope of work in coordination with Chuck Oliver, the man Milner hired to serve as operations director overseeing utilities. While Commissioner Wilbur Waters has asked the commission to adjust the salaries of its public works employees as it considers next years budget, Milner said he is already advertising negotiable salaries based on experience in advertisements for new employees in order to attract Milner said he and Oliver compared the citys salary range, which hasnt been adjusted in more than a decade, with neighboring municipal utilities and found Starke was many dollars per hour lower.Church giving away school suppliesSt. John Missionary Baptist Church, 21592 NE C.R. 200B in Lawtey, will have a school supply give away for children on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. POWER Gayle Shuford Nicula

Principal Tyler Hildebran announced that Northside Christian Academy earned accreditation from the Florida League of Christian Schools, an accreditation division of League of Christian Schools. This is a monumental achievement not only for Northside Christian Academy to be state and nationally accredited, but also for the community of Starke and Christian education, stated League of Christian Schools Executive Director Michael Burroughs. We are honored to recognize such a great school and know that students and parents will value this recognition. ILCS and FLOCS provide nationally recognized accreditation for the purpose of continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. Northside Christian Academy conducted a rigorous process of self-examination of the entire school and prepared a self-evaluation report. All program materials from all courses offered, as well as material validating governance, facilities, student services, safety and more, were sent for review to outside specialists chosen by ILCS. A team of nationally trained evaluators then traveled to the school and conducted an onsite review student services and review of all procedures. Based on this entire process and the teams report to the Accrediting Commission, Northside Christian Academy was granted accreditation. The League of Christian Schools has served quality Christian schools since 1983 as a primary choice for Christian preschool and K-12 accreditation, promoting biblical, academic and professional excellence in its member schools. The League of Christian Schools is a nationally recognized accrediting agency membership organization promoting quality assessment programs that focus on academic excellence at all levels (preschool through grade 12), member training which provides ongoing professional development and centers on best practice, teacher educators, and integration of Christian distinctives through all practices and precepts.

Cho Yoon-Je, the South Korean ambassador to the U.S., expressed his thanks to this countrys Korean War veterans during an Aug. 6 ceremony at Camp Blanding Joint Training Center. Everybody here today has played a role in the (Republic of Korea)-U.S. alliance, Cho said. The torch you lit more than 65 years ago will be passed on and protected by the next generation. has inspired us. Cho presented medals to approximately 20 veterans in attendance and personally thanked more who were in attendance but not part of the You have contributed more than most to the strengths of Korea-U.S. relations, Cho said. I wish that I could travel across the U.S. to thank every single veteran in person. Im very glad to be here with you this afternoon. Cho said U.S. servicemen fought in a country they never knew and pointed out that Americans involvement continued after the war, with many serving as Peace Corps volunteers in the 1960s and 1970s. The devotion and service from Americans have made Korean accomplishments possible, Cho said, adding, We were able to rise from the ashes of a war and develop an advanced economy and a vibrant democracy. The success of the Republic of Korea today is a shining example of how a joint effort toward the right goal can bring astonishing achievements. The Korean people will never forget the help and friendship you have shown us. Congressman Ted Yoho, who introduced Cho, talked of the difference U.S. servicemen made when they signed a line on a document that said you would and a way of life second to none around the world. It is because of what you have done that has allowed a strict demarcation between North and South Korea, said Yoho, who Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. All you have to do is look at a satellite picture at night. You can see the difference between what freedom and liberty look like versus repression by a Communist regime. Yoho, in addressing the veterans in attendance, said their acts of valor helped in making South Korea the sixth-largest trading partner of the U.S. and a strong ally of the U.S. I cant tell you how proud I am to stand here in front of you, Korean War veteran Gary Giles (right) bows to receive a medal of recognition from South Korean Ambassador to the United States Cho Yoon-Je.

A few campaign representatives spoke even though they faced no opposition in the primary. Pickens, the president of St. Johns River State College in Palatka, said he has known gubernatorial candidate and current Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam for 20 years. Pickens also said that through his prior service in the Florida Legislature and his current job as president of one of the smallest colleges in the state, be believes that rural Florida is being gobbled up by urban Florida. Its just a fact of life because there are so many more votes, theres so much more money in urban Florida than there is in rural Florida that our issues often get lost, he said. Pickens said that Putnam will look out for Floridas rural communities. The one thing I know for sure about Adam Putnam is hes from Bartow and he knows Bartow, he knows Pahokee, he knows Palatka, he knows Starke, Pickens said.

Brian Tomlinson, head coach of the Bradford High School football team, admitted that on paper, it looks to be a rebuilding year for the Tornadoes, who were one win away from playing for the Class 4A state championship last year. He and his staff look at it differently. The mentality were trying to have is its more of a reloading year, Tomlinson said. Still, whatever success the Tornadoes experience this season depends upon the development of inexperienced players. Like Ive told other people, its going to depend on how fast our young guys develop experience, Tomlinson said. If theyre able to pick up things quickly, then I think we can have a good year. If not, it could be a long year. With that in mind, he has to feel good about what hes seen so far in practice from his wide receivers and quarterbacks. Though graduate Chris Cummings caught the majority of passes last season (40 receptions, 13 touchdowns), players such as junior Nathaniel Davis (second on the team last year with 10 catches for 195 yards and three touchdowns), senior Jcobi Harris and sophomores Travis Lee and Austin Lovell have shown theyre ready to step in and contribute. I could see how hard theyve worked this summer just in this threw a lot at them, Tomlinson said. They picked it up quickly. I was impressed with how quickly we were able to install a lot of the passing game. Tomlinson said he doesnt expect to have one receiver catch 13 touchdowns this season like Cummings did last year. If we do, then you know were lighting up the scoreboard every Friday night. What I think is going to happen is youre going to have more receivers involved because of just how well theyre running routes and how well theyre picking up the offense.New QB, but experienced RBWho will throw them the ball? Thats to be determined as three players are vying for the opportunity to replace Zion Barber, who threw for 1,341 yards and rushed for 805 yards last year: sophomore Pedro Carter, senior Adrien Ciena and junior Jackson Smith. Though Carter took some snaps last year, Ciena is the most experienced player, having started last year for Keystone Heights. However, Ciena, who in 2017 completed 37-of-94 passes for 560 yards, with four touchdowns and eight interceptions, is having to learn a new offense. Tomlinson said all three have strong arms, noting that Ciena would probably be the expected starter if the BHS offense was designed for the quarterback to sit back in the pocket all day and just pass the ball. Carter and Smith are more like Barber in that theyre threats in the running game as well. It would be a lot easier for me to get a starter named at the end of this week, Tomlinson said. It probably wont happen, though, but the one thing about it is Im comfortable that we can put any of those three in and be very successful. Whoever lines up behind center will be handing the ball off to senior Jeremiah Vaughn, who led the Tornadoes in rushing in 2017 with 975 yards. Tomlinson said that with the possible exception of Raines, no opponents players were able to get a solid hit on Vaughn, whom he described as shifty and elusive. Im excited about the fact hes going to be a home-run threat for us, Tomlinson said. Tomlinson said Vaughn, despite his past success, is always reviewing game video and asking coaches what he needs to do to improve his game. Hes always wanting to get better, Tomlinson said of the 5-6, 147-pound running back. Somebodys going to get a steal in him at the next level. Somebodys going to take a chance on his size and realize theyve got a playmaker. Other players in the mix in Erric Smith and junior Malik Hankerson. Tomlinson said Smith is like a younger version of Vaughn, but hes more of a physical runner. In the spring game, Smith, after breaking a would-be tackler rather than trying to elude him. I think by the time hes a senior, hes going to be a little bit bigger than Jeremiah, Tomlinson said. I dont think he has the speed Jeremiah has, but he has enough speed to where if he gets into the open, good luck catching him. Hankersons main role is playing linebacker, but hes shown potential at running back in practices when it wasnt his time to take reps on defense. There are going to be times where we need to give him a shot, Tomlinson said.O-line to feature 4 new starters, D-line is experiencedDespite the fact that junior Gavin Woods is the only returning starter on the offensive line, Tomlinson feels good about that unit and its ability to open holes for running backs and protect the quarterback. I think this group is going to shock a lot of people because everybody coaches included pencils that in as our question mark, Tomlinson said. I think theyre probably going to be one of our strong points. Tomlinson said Woods strengths are his knowledge of the game and a mean streak that He may not be the strongest one on the offensive line, Tomlinson said, but he might be the meanest one on the offensive line. Now, you talk to him outside of football, hes a great kid, but when it comes down to it, hes going to block the man in front of him and do what it takes to get the job done. Players vying for the other line positions include seniors Sam Simmons and Hunter Smith, juniors Drake Barber and David Barrs and sophomore Levontre Daniel. Tomlinson said Barrs, who started some games last season, is strong like one of last years starters, who went on to win a state championship in weightlifting. Hell not necessarily replace Jakob Alvarez, Tomlinson said, Flip to the other side of the experienced unit for BHS its defensive line, which includes seniors Taurus Coleman, Shaytron Cotton and Jacquez Mosley and juniors Barber and Donte Banks. Cotton and Mosley are the most experienced players that have played for BHS (Coleman played the last three seasons at P.K. Yonge), with Mosley fourth on the team last year in tackles with 83 (40 solo). He can take over a game from the inside, Tomlinson said of Mosley. Its going to get to the point where teams are going to have to double team him. Hes quick off the ball. He just has a nose for the ball. He knows where he needs to go. Cotton was limited last year because of an injury, playing only six games. Right now, I think he feels like he has something to prove, Tomlinson said. Hes very quick. Hes very physical as well. Hes on a mission.The rest of the defense and holes teamsAt linebacker, the Tornadoes have such players as Hankerson, senior Tylan Davis and junior Sam Simmons is shown during Bradfords Aug. 6 practice.

Gabe Cook. Hankerson is the only player from last year with starting experience, and that was game against Raines. I think he used it as a stepping stone because he worked hard in the off-season, Tomlinson said of Hankerson. So far in practice, hes worked hard. Davis, a former BHS player who played in Georgia last year, brings experience, too. The secondary features last years third-leading tackler in Davis (he had 102). He doesnt just have a knack for bringing down ball carriers. He had three interceptions last year and seems to know the right place to be at the right time. Hes tough for us to pass against (in practice), Tomlinson said. Hes tough for opposing teams to pass against. He made an interception in the spring game. Honestly and truly, I dont know how he got to that spot, but he did. Other players that will be counted on in the secondary include senior James Martin, a former BHS player who played at Fleming Island last year, junior Isaiah Crum and sophomore Adonte Balfour. Tomlinson said Crum and Martin are players who want opponents to throw their way, while Balfour, up from junior varsity, has the raw talent to play that side of the ball. He just understands what needs to be done. As for special teams, the Tornadoes need to a kicker and a punter to step in for Zion Barber, who handled both duties. Tomlinson doesnt know yet who his kicker will be, but he believes Davis or Lee could step in at punter. When it comes to returning opponents punts and kicks, BHS has a number of options, including Davis, Martin and Vaughn. Tomlinson said special teams are being emphasized more in practices, saying sometimes that aspect of the game often gets lost in the midst of offensive and defensive work. Caleb Dukes is going to kind of be our special-teams coordinator this year, Tomlinson said. I think hes studied since the game ended against Raines. Hes got some ideas I think are going to be great.Bradford begins the season with a preseason kickoff classic at Newberry on Friday, Aug. 17, at 7:30 p.m. The Tornadoes open the season in earnest Friday, Aug. 24, at Taylor County at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 31, against Baldwin at 7:30 p.m. For Tomlinson, who was recently hospitalized due to a life-threatening infection and underwent open-heart surgery to remove a coiled wire left behind after the removal of a because he has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, its good to be able to be with his team and readying for his second season as BHS head coach. Im excited to get back and being back to normal, Tomlinson said. Just being around the kids is what has been the best part for me seeing them and seeing how hard they work. Thats pretty exciting.

6B Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section LettersNo access, no tax dollarsDear Editor: Beach front property owners want to prohibit access of the masses to what has previously been considered public property and I have no problem with that due to tax savings. By signing a law prohibiting our citizens and visitors from stepping foot on the dry sand of beaches beyond the high tide line, removing the pleasure of enjoying a day at the beach, the state should no longer have to maintain the beaches. Beach replenishment costs taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars over the years. Nature can now resume its relentless march inland and those who want to enjoy the ocean view out their living room window can also enjoy the view of the house or hotel tumbling into the ocean as Neptune claims what is his. Scott signing a document to mitigate the law is only a kneejerk reaction to save his Senate campaign. If he really cared about your access to the shore, he would have never signed the law. Jack Schenck Lake ButlerFocus on what we have in commonDear Editor: I have invested over half of my life in Bradford County in various ways, with a large part my career in the school system. Children if you will. For the most part we are all of Southern ancestry. Our families, relatives, parents and those that came long before us know heat, bugs and a slower way of life. The heat obviously slowed us down. My intro here is to prove we have much in common. People from other regions and even distant places have believed us to also be slow in other ways. I know that to be a great falsehood. We may have some of the oddest and unusual characters to walk the earth but some of them are smart as a whip. We just have a way of doing things that annoy some people. I tell people when I have the time after retirement Im heading to Ohio or New York and will drive slow in the left lane with my turn signal on until I feel vindicated. But enough of my humor. I want to address our current situation. The real world came to Starke recently with the tragic shooting of a young man who grew up in our county. We have seen the images on TV so often about young men being shot by law enforcement in situations that seem less threatening than ones where others are led away in handcuffs after actually killing people. It scares us and makes us want to hold our children closer. My best friend was a police chief in Gainesville for many years. I like to think I know what it takes to be a cop. But until you come upon a crime scene or person seemingly out of control with the threat of a weapon we can probably never know. I do know this. LEOs are the ones that go out there at night and are the ones that are supposed to run If I am a cop and come upon a scene where the person we are confronting comes out with a gun in his hand I am going to try my best to be the one that goes home to my family that night. Each of these tragic things all have one thing in common. People are hurt or die. Nobody wants this to be common place in our country or even town. The other thing in common is a gun is involved. Guns are unforgiving and in an instant, can change it all. As we see this stuff seemingly escalate each day many of us probably see the need for a gun as a personal safety issue. I want us all to step back and realize the solution to this is not coming from Washington or Tallahassee with new laws. It will come from us as a people that care about each other and try to do more for our youth in terms of schools and afterschool activities and even in our interactions with each other day to day. I have worked with kids over 40 years in this county and many of them are parents and productive citizens. I know how many good people live here and care about these things. When I see black and white folks in the Walmart parking lot hugging and recalling good times at work or at ball games or where ever, I know I am seeing genuine humanity and understanding that we are all in this together. What I see on the national news is not how I see much of rural America. Fearing our neighbors and allowing people on the news to tell us who bad guys are and who is tearing down America is not going to heal our divides. It will come from us as real people living together with our kids in local schools and doing our part to make our community a safe and nurturing place for our children and their children. Kindness and courtesy go a long way in bridging long divides between people and it costs nothing. We can do more focusing on what we have in common and what is good than we can ever do by angrily reacting to that which divides us. Steve Acree BrookerHow do we move forward Dear Editor: The tragic shooting that resulted in a death, which happened in our community has impacted the immediate family of the victim, the children of RJE Center, Regeneration Church of God in Christ, the witnesses, the community at large. It has caused trauma and post-traumatic stress for those who witnessed or merely heard the sounds of question is, how do we move forward from here? How do we help to heal our community and give closure to a grieving family and community? We can start by transparency, releasing the body cam video tapes. It will answer the following questions: a) Was the shooting in a timely manner and was everything possible done to save his life after the shooting. If the response is FDLE has control of the videos/tape and the authority to release them, we ask that you tell FDLE the people demand the truth: Release the videos. The truth will not change the circumstances or bring back the life that was lost, but it can set free the minds of the people about what happened, so that everyone can stop speculating and drawing their own conclusion about what law enforcement did or did not do. Sheriff Smith, in the lessons learned in this tragic situation, is there anything that could have been done differently? Could backup have been called once it was known that the chase was heading into District 2 to ensure the safety of children at RJE school and the Regeneration church, as this incident occurred between two known sites where children are usually present? The impact of what happened goes far and beyond the day of the incident, as some children are now fearful of going back to school because they are afraid somebody might come to their school to harm them because they are related to the people involved. We must get help to them and the other children through counseling and the adults who need it. Listen to them when they need to talk. For the family, I say to you, you are not responsible for the decisions that your loved ones make when you have given them sound doctrine, and rearing in the Love of God. For every adult is accountable for their own behavior and decisions. But it does take a village, the whole community in the rearing of our children, especially when they leave the safety net of home and family. Now to my beloved community, I say to you, we all have a role to play in what happens here forward in our community. What we allow our children to be exposed to, and what we tolerate within the walls and boundaries of our communities makes a difference in the wellbeing of the community. If you see something wrong going on and do nothing about it, you are condoning the behavior and sending a message to the young people that what they are doing is OK with you. The communitys role is to protect our future generation. These young people are our future. If we tolerate destructive behavior, we, too, bear some responsibility for the destruction within our own communities. When asking what we can do to help our young people, some have said this is a different generation; they are too hardheaded and unwilling to listen. But I say today, even if only a few listen, we can still make a difference. The truth is, they are no different than the generations before them, we were all hardheaded and didnt want to listen sometimes, but the difference is our community at that time did not give up on us, and whoever in the community saw us acting up, they had the authority and blessing of our parents to straighten us out, and our parents would take care of us again when we got home. We, too, must not be tolerant of some of the behavior going on around us in our communities. We must stop tolerating the drug happening around us that our children see and are exposed to on a daily basis. If you see something, say something or do something about it. Our message must be consistent, and the same by everyone. We must respond with one voice, No, not in our backyard, not now, not ever. We must learn to speak encouragement to our youth. Dont be afraid to talk to them. Speak hope for them, pray for them, show love toward them, so that even when we have to speak to them about something they are doing that is harmful to themselves and others, they will know that you are saying these things out of love and care for them. We must encourage the young people to stay in school and get a good education so that they can be productive citizens and be able to take care of themselves and contribute back to the community. We must be a resource and help them in obtaining a job. Take them to Work Source. Let them know if you hear of a job opening. Tell them who is hiring. Help them them navigate on the computer to do a job search. We must present them with alternatives to a life of crime and trying so hard to get rich quick. We must speak hope, success and encouragement, and something to help themselves. Christian community, lets speak to them about the love that God has toward them. Lets teach them to love the Lord, themselves and their neighbors. Lets instill hope in them. Let them know that their eyes have not seen, nor their ears heard, neither has the heart of man perceived the good things that God hath prepared for them that love him. We must not give up on them. There is also a greater spiritual understanding that we all must come to understand, and that is there is an appointed time for everyone to die or be changed. The Scriptures teach us in Ecclesiastes 3 there is a time to give birth and a time to die. The 90th Psalm teaches us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. You see, we must to do all that we can for the Lord and each other now, because tomorrow is not promised. James 4:13-14 says for what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. God controls the time of birth and death. Death has no respect of person, regardless of the age or status in life. What we do have control over is how we choose to live, whether we choose God or the world. None of us know the moment or hour when the Lord will come back. So, let us live as if Christ is coming back right now. Let us heal our community by sharing the love that Christ has towards. Let us help to soothe the wounded and broken hearts of the family and community by pouring on some oil of love. Let us show love toward one another as God so loved the world. Gods got this. For God is love. Sincerely, Minister Carolyn Brown Spooner Yoho said. As part of the ceremony, a proclamation from South Koreas Ministry of Patrons and Veterans Affairs was read. In part, it said, We cherish in our hearts the in helping us reestablish our free nation. In grateful recognition of your dedicated contributions, it is our privilege to proclaim you an ambassador for peace. Yoho said he and Cho, whom he described as a great friend, look forward to a brighter future for all of Korea. The congressman said those who fought in the Korean War did their part to make that hoped-for future possible. Our hopes and our dreams and our prayers are that one day the whole Korean peninsula is denuclearized, and they live in peace and that they have needs of both sides. Thats only possible because of what you guys have done.VETS Enjoying a laugh and clapping at something said by Congressman Ted Yoho are Korean War veterans (l-r) Ron Carbaugh, Jerry Fitzpatrick and Ken Sassaman.

COURTContinued from 4B Childs Robinson Norris New pastor on mission to help those who are hurtingBY KIM BOX ership, Starke Community Church has a new pastor. Founding pastor Al Whiddon led the congregation from the time it opened its doors on Nov. 18, 2012, until he retired in February years of his 25-year ministry with the congregation now located near the intersection of U.S. 301 and Mar ket Road. After attempting several other unsuccessful church plants in Starke, the Assemblies of God was delight ed that Starke Community Church took root and that it has continued to bloom under the denominational umbrella for almost six years. Inter the pulpit each Sunday until the congregation found a permanent pastor. Stepping into the vacant lead ership role, Pastor Michael Smith known to his church as Pastor Mike is 100 percent positive that the Starke church is where God wants him to serve. He said that he knows because God actually spoke to him and told him so. As I looked at the churchs website, I heard God direct me here and tell me that the church was a hidden jewel, Smith said. He and his family are new to Starke as well as the church. His wife, Debbie, wholeheartedly agrees with Smith that Starke is where they should be. It was not until the Smiths were in transit, literally on the road moving to Starke, that a rental home into which the family could move became available. Their real estate agent called and told them that out of the blue someone called, and bam, they had a home. This call was just one more conhad peaceful assurance about Starke was the place for them. We feel at home here already, Debbie said.Missions-mobilizedWhile Smith hopes Starke Community Church will experience tremendous growth, he is not much on playing the numbers game. He and Debbie said that about 40 to 50 people attend on Sundays. Smith was some of them drive 30 to 40 minutes to get to the church. Thousands in attendance, but just warming pews cannot compare to Missions is extremely important to Smith and, as the church progresses, will be a major emphasis. He said he does not want his church to mere ly gain knowledge and understanding of places and people in need. I want our church to be missions mobilized and not just missions minded, Smith said. He and Debbie have both been on missions trips to Mexico and El Saland he organized the last two of them. Debbie has been on two. The Smiths have also been involved with other missions and relief teams within the United States. Even now, the pastor is prayerfully considering the organization of another missions trip next year. Helping hurting peopleSmith has repeatedly noted and been made aware as recently as his morning drive to work that parts of Starke and some of its residents appear sad and hurting. The church is like a triage, Debbie said. We believe in healing; we pray over people and see things happen, really happen, Smith said. We have the medicine to treat lifes problems. Debbie added. God heals, he plans, he sets everything up, Smith also said. Were just his ser vants. The couple said that hurting people, and all people for that matter, are looking for authenticity in believers. thentic, its like theyre saying: Thank you for not judging us. Debbie said. The Smiths said the gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ, but the gospel is also sharing with others our own testimonies of the difference Christ has made in our lives. Jesus is so relatable. Debbie said. He fought the same tempta need to know. With a law degree and a pastors heart, Smith knows he can reach people in a unique way. I can help people see beyond their pain through Jesus who lives in me, Smith said. He has been a substance abuse and mental health counselor. He also has experience with Probation and Parole and with the Department of Children and Families. Smith has served as a pastor before. He has also led a childrens ministry and has been a missions pastor. Debbie dreams of one day being a child psychologist. Her experi ence with children thus far has come through teaching and through par enting. The Smiths have three chil dren: Rebekah, 16, Leah, 14, and Elijah, 13. Debbie assists her husband in ministry as needed. The couple extends an open invitation to anyone in the community who needs someone Preparing for battleSmith is preparing his church for battle with his current sermon series. Focusing on spiritual warfare, he will then guide the church into a study of the Great Commission: the mandate of Jesus Christ to his followers just before his ascension into heaven, recorded in Matthew 28:1820 (NKJV): And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Since the National Guard has a strong presence around the commu nity, Smith used the organization as an example. He said that in any battle, the strongest part of the defense takes place in the back where preparations are being made. Unless were prepared, we ought not go into battle, Smith said. If were not prepared, were doomed for failure. We just need to do what God calls us to do and let God do his thing. When we do our best, God takes care of the rest. Mike and Debbie Smith

SenateBradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith said Gov. Rick Scotts staff asked him to speak for Scott. Smith said he agreed because that follows through on the commitments he makes. He also works with those that may not believe the same way that he does, Smith said. Hes proven that. We need more of that in Washington, D.C. Im tired of the divide because somebody comes up with an idea, and the He also said Scott has not been swayed by special interests and has made decisions with his heart. Smith said Scotts efforts as governor have resulted in better roads, more jobs and a lower crime rate. He also said that throughout Scotts two terms as governor, Scott telephoned him often whenever the area faced a crisis. Yoho told the crowd that he was frustrated with what he saw happening in Washington. Just like you guys, we were fed up with what Congress wasnt doing, or some would claim they were doing, he said. What I saw, one of the big things was the lack of vision and leadership for the country coming out of the Republican conference. You know, broken taxes, and health care thats still broken, immigration, there should be a solution to that, but its not being worked out. Yoho pointed to changes in the Republican leadership in Congress as improvements he supported, with Paul Ryan replacing Speaker John Boehner and with Ryan stepping down at the end of the year. Yoho also highlighted improvements to the Veterans Administration that he helped push through. We have put a tremendous amount of funding into (the VA), not just for doctors and facilities, but to change the whole structure of the VA, he said. We just passed the VA Mission Act, that gives our veterans more choices where they can go directly to a doctor if they cant get in. This is something thats helping our veterans. Yoho said he and his colleagues have rolled back billions of dollars of regulations. He also said he still hopes to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Yoho said that through his efforts, a study to improve the Shands Bridge near Green Cove Springs was expedited, a key hurricane-evacuation route. He also said he helped the sheriffs to clean Alligator Creek and Lake. Yoho addressed claims that he does not support President Trump. There are rumors out there that I dont support the president, he said. The president called me out the other day in Tampa and said, We need to keep people like that in there. You know, weve been with the president over 90 percent of the time. Weve had our differences, you know, well speak up when we do. But, weve been with this president, and I can tell you this president loves this country as much as everybody in here. Facing Yoho in the Aug. 28 primary is Judson Sapp. Sapp told the crowd that his family owns a railroad construction company, which he now runs. My primary focus when I get to Congress is going to be transportation and infrastructure, he said. Sapp added that if elected, he plans to represent all the people in his district and negotiate Garrett Mann is a staff member on Grimsleys campaign. He said Grimsley, now a state senator, chaired the Florida House Appropriations Committee before moving to the Senate where she currently chairs the upper chambers Agriculture Committee. He added that she has also run her familys business, Grimsley Oil, a chain of convenience stores in south Florida with 10 locations. Mann said Grimsley got involved in politics after the state agriculture department closed down two of her familys stores. According to Mann, when Grimsley called the state agency to reopen the stores, she was told, Were not working today. Well deal with you next week. Basically, almost trying to put her out of business, Mann said. She was so upset by this, that actually was the catalyst for her to even get into politics. She got into politics because the Department of Agriculture wasnt treating her right, and the rest is history. She is today trying to run for the Department of Agriculture head. Mann also said that with her background as a nurse, Grimsley has a track record of caring for others and taking care of people. Wilson said Moodys career includes stints as an associate at Holland and Knight, an assistant U.S. attorney, and a circuit judge in Tampa. Now, shes running for attorney general, said Wilson. Shes endorsed by Pam Bondi, our current attorney general, 43 of 49 Republican chairs in Florida, including right here and 12 out of the 20 state attorneys in Florida. Wilson also said that of the candidates running for attorney general, Moody is the only candidate that has prosecuted a case. Palatka resident Bobby Payne His district covers Putnam, Bradford and Union counties, as well as southern and central Clay County. Payne told the gathering that he is a 37-year employee of Seminole Electric and a strong believer in the Second Amendment. Payne touted his working relationships with Sen. Rob Bradley of Fleming Island, Rep. Travis Cummings of Orange Park, Rep. Chuck Clemons of Newberry and Sen. Keith Perry of Gainesville. One of my roommates, Paul Renner, is the future Speaker of the House, he said. We have great opportunities in northeast Florida to see some nice change. He said he worked with Bradley to secure appropriations to improve Keystone Heightsarea lakes. I was proud to sponsor bills that supported raises for our state law enforcement, for our highway patrol, for our help them with post-traumatic stress disorder and issues where theyre exposed to cancer at a greater rate than an average person, he said. Payne also said he supported bills that improved school choice and will continue to support the development of technical schools, giving students an alternative to college. We believe that students should go through apprenticeship programs, he said. We have a huge skills gap now with skilled labor, and we want that skills gap to be closed. We want our kids and our families to stay close to so were working on improving economic conditions in our rural counties so they can do that. 2Thompson, the owner of a Lawtey auto repair shop, said that when running for county commissioner four years ago, he promised to work just as hard for the county as he did for his shop. He added that the board of county commissioners has accomplished much during his time on the panel, and he wants four more years to continue moving the county forward. He also said that when Hurricane Irma hit the area last year, he did what he could to help residents recover. When Irma hit, it hit Bradford County hard, he said. Luckily, I was able to leave my shop for nine days, put a chainsaw in my RALLY Event organizer Richard Solze addresses the crowd.
Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section hand and get out there and work. Im a working person. I aint going to sit behind a desk. So thats what Im here today to do. I want you to know I want four more years, and I feel like I did a good job. 4Tom Germano, who early in his campaign made his opposition to a proposed phosphate mine the centerpiece of his campaign, did not mention the project during his talk. Instead he talked about his County, when his parents bought a lakefront cabin in the 1960s. We spent all our summers here and many, many, many hundreds of weekends, he said. It was a very magical place and a place we always felt fortunate to be able to come to. That was way before the Magic Kingdom. This was our Magic Kingdom. My wife and I chose to move here several years ago because we loved it, he continued. Ive always loved it, its always been a magical place for me. I want to run for county commissioner to help our county grow and prosper. Germano then took on the issue of Stasia Rudolphs writein candidacy, a topic he called the elephant in the room. a write-in, her action closed the Aug. 28 primary to Republicans only, locking out nonRepublicans from the primary. You know there were a few (rumors) going around saying I found some loopholes and I did this and did that, he said. Actually, I really did none of that. I didnt have anything to do with it (the primary) being closed or with the write-in candidate (running). Germano also pointed out that his primary opponent, Danny Riddick changed parties from Democrat to Republican in 2016 and that Democrats have had their own to run for the District 4 seat. So, I dont believe Ive disenfranchised anyone, he said. Ive said all along that Im a Republican, Ive been a Republican my entire life, although I feel some regret that some people wont be able to vote in the election, I dont feel an obligation, as a Republican that I owe the Democrats a candidate. They should have been aware, and they should have known and been able to put up their own candidate to run against us. 4Incumbent commissioner Danny Riddick recalled his time growing up near Hampton Lake and his love for the areas waterways. Theres not an inch of Hampton Lake I havent been on or probably camped out on when I was a young boy, he said. I love the lakes, I love the rivers, the springs, and I enjoy them all the time. I never stop talking about them. Riddick also talked about the infrastructure improvements in the district since he has been of 7.7 miles of dirt roads, resurfacing County Road 221 between Hampton and U.S. 301, constructing sidewalks on State Road 21 from the Keystone United Methodist Church to the Santa Fe College Watson Center and on County Road 21B between Speedville and State Road 100, a sidewalk near Hampton Lake along County Road 18 from U.S. 301 to Southwest 80th Place, extention of the Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail from State Road 100 to the Clay County line and construction of a new of the Santa Fe College Watson Center. He also refuted rumors that has stalled. I dont care what youve heard, he said. The concrete slab is set to be poured Aug. 10 and the metal building is going to be delivered Sept. 14. Riddick also said that when he heard about the proposed phosphate mine in Bradford and Union counties, he tried to persuade his fellow commissioners to enact a temporary moratorium on any new mines in the county but could not convince his colleagues to go along. Gayle Shuford Nicula told the crowd about her family background and about her 37She graduated from Lake City Community College in 1981 and then obtained a second degree from the University of Florida 24 years later, which enabled her to nurse practitioner. My experience in the medical profession, caring for the citizens of Bradford County where I grew up, has fueled my passion to extend that same care to the students, parents and faculty of Bradford County, she said. She said students, teachers and administrators in Bradford County and throughout the country have faced the challenges of school safety, discipline, teacher shortages and mandated testing. She added that those challenges remain a work in process. Our children deserve no less than the best educational opportunity to be able to learn and to graduate and be successful and productive in our workforce, she said. She added that people have been asking her why she is Well, the reason Im doing this, bottom line, is I love people and Ive wanted to do this for several years, and I wanted to make a difference in our school system, she desire in making a difference in our school system by being a concerned, honest and committed individual. School board candidate Jeremy Pilcher told the crowd that he is 39-years-old, born and raised around Bradford County and has lived here all his life. Ive got three kids: 14, 11 and 4, he said, one in high school, middle school and pre-K.
