DyalStarke native Loper is new AP at Southside ElementaryBY CLIFF SMELLEY Stephanie Loper is back where she started. However, this time, shes opposed to that of a teacher at Starkes Southside Elementary School. Loper, the daughter of Robert and Norma Rhoden of Starke, is the new assistant principal at Southside working as a curriculum resource teacher the past four years at Brooker and Hampton elementary schools (she was also a guidance counselor as well at Hampton the past year). She began her career in education at Southside as a teacher (substitute 1997-98, fulltime 1999-2005). Im excited about the opportunity to be back here, Loper said. Her role at Southside isnt the only thing thats changed since the last time she worked there. Loper said she can count on one hand the number of around who are still at the school. Even though I returned to where it all started and made a full circle, its different, she said. Then theres the matter of readjusting to a larger school. Hampton Elementary, for example, had 20 faculty and staff and approximately Stephanie Loper, the daughter of Robert and Norma Rhoden of Starke, is the new assistant principal at Southside Elementary School, which is where her career started as a teacher.See LOPER, 6A

The early voting site at the courthouse is the county commission chambers in the north wing and the site is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. As of press time, 1,971 voters, or 12.167 percent of the countys voters have cast ballots, with 523 walking into the courthouse and 1,448 voting by mail. One thousand, one hundred, ninety-six Republicans and 691 Democrats have cast ballots, along with 83 voters with no Vaughan said that during midterm elections, mailed-in ballots usually outpace walk-ins. However, during presidential election years, more people walk in. Vaughan also said that with up to eight constitutional amendments on the November mail promotion, encouraging residents to vote at home. He said the campaign resulted in around 1,000 additional requests for ballots mailed to homes.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor One of the goals of Starkes budget is to raise the salaries for some of the most loyal and lowest paid city employees, but commissioners are also struggling with being prudent with public funds and fair to all employees. Last month, Commissioner Wilbur Waters brought a salary list to the others, asking that several employees be raised to $13 an hour. There were three public works employees on the list, for example, earning $11 an hour (one of whom has left and been replaced by a new employee at Waters target $13 hourly rate). Weve got people working out here digging ditches in the rain, hot sun, cold weather (at) $11 an hour. Thats ridiculous, he said. Waters also wanted the commissions other employees to receive an additional $1 an hour, pending a look at what it would cost. Few positions in the city dip below $12 an hour. Other city offer higher starting pay or give raises. Some employees who work for the commission can increase their salaries by raising their skill level or pursuing not open to all employees, and they wait on years when the commission can afford to award a pay raise to all employees which means they still lag behind the rest. That is to say those who stick around. Even the higher paid employees are picked off by employers with more competitive salaries as evidenced by the recent loss of the citys electric department supervisor. Loyalty is not promised reward. Weve got one guy here whos been with us since 2008 and hes only making $14 an hour, Waters said of one public works employee. Its not just purchasing positions that date back to the 1990s. One employee makes less than $16 an hour, and the other $18.35 an hour. Thats why we just lost Kaddy. Its because he can go to work as a lineman at $3 more an hour, Waters said of former line crew supervisor Kris Kadlec and he was one of the citys more highly paid employees, earning almost $29 an hour. The risk involved in a public safety job does not guarantee higher pay, either. The most receive $13 an hour. Meanwhile, although they are unionized, some of the lowest salaries in the city, including a 2010 hire that is still at $10.90 an hour. $12.51 an hour, and another is earning just over $19 an hour although he was hired in the mid 1980s. Salary negotiations have been postponed, however, until the commission decides what it can do for all employees over the next budget cycle. Given some of the struggles employees are facing trying to keep aging utility infrastructure up and running, Waters said its time the commission does a better job of taking care of its people. Milners proposed budget includes Waters request for the $11 employees as well as $1 more an hour for all city employees. According to Commissioner Tommy Chastain, anyone hired in the last year would not be eligible for the pay raise. The current personnel rules classify those employees as probationary until after 12 months. Speaking during the Aug. 14 budget workshop, Chastain said the same rules dictate that anyone receiving a recent raise would also be ineligible for an increase, although Milner said that particular rule has not always been followed. Its hard to live with, but when you come to work, you know what youre coming to work for, said Commissioner Travis Woods. While he said he didnt have a problem with $1 more an hour, he also said they should be considering how long an employee has worked for the city, what he or she was hired to do and the pay scale when he or she was hired before raising their pay above others. Commissioner Danny Nugent told Milner to follow policy, be consistent and make sure employees werent given something the commission had not discussed. Milners plan to be more competitive as well as attract included seeking permission from the commission to negotiate starting salaries with new employees. The commission was wanted input on the outcome of those negotiations. The budget includes $500 performance bonuses for employees as well at a cost of around $40,000, but commissioners have not agreed to keep those in the budget. Commissioners and other an additional 3 percent in their checks. That comes to $388 a year for the most recent addition to the board, Janice Mortimer, $444 for Danny Nugent and Travis Woods, and $459 for Tommy Chastain and Wilbur Waters. City Clerk Ricky Thompson would receive $1,432 more a year, and Police Chief Jeff Johnson would receive $1,818 more. In other discussion, Chastain pointed out the budget is based on a property tax increase anticipated when the commission approved a higher tentative millage rate for next year. It will raise approximately $200,000 in added property taxes, but the only way to afford the proposed spending plan is to approve the tax increase or approve a higher transfer of revenue from the enterprise fund. Its either going to come from the utility fund (or the enterprise fund) or its going to come from an increase of the millage rate, Chastain said. The 2019 budget already relies on a $595,000 transfer in utility revenue to the general fund to help pay for general government costs, including public safety Woods said the tax increase per individual resident would be hardly noticeable. Chastain wanted to see an estimate representing the cost for an average property. The budget also includes an 8.5 percent increase in the base years of planned increases. Having addressed wastewater revenue, Chastain also wanted to see numbers on reducing the number of gallons covered in the base rate for water as a way of increasing revenue from water sales. Nugent questioned the impact on commercial customers. Based on a past electric rate study, there is a suggestion to look at electric rates as well. According to Milner, the residential electric rate has not increased since 2001. The city manager is forecasting a reduction in electric revenue given conservation efforts, including the use of LED lighting, as well as the price of natural gas, which is keeping the cost of generation low. The budget is also balanced with $370,000 in cash carryforward. Hearings on the $19 million budget will take place in September.Starke seeking passing water grade after anther main breaksBY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor As of Tuesday night, the city of Starke was still seeking a clean bill of health for its water system after a main water line break seven days before near the citys recreational complex on Edwards Road caused a decrease in water pressure, necessitating a precautionary boiled water notice. On Thursday, Aug. 16, city Water and Wastewater Superintendent Kyle Jerrels said water samples submitted after the Aug. 14 incident. I should receive a call or email around this time tomorrow on the results of the second set of water samples, he wrote. Jerrels added that once he received word that the lab has cleared the second sample, the city could then cancel its precautionary boiled water warning. However, the second set of samples revealed the presence of total coliform in a sample taken south of Southside Elementary School. While the city rescinded its precautionary boiled water notice in other areas, the alert remained in effect for the area south of the school and into the countys industrial park on L.M. Gaines Boulevard. We had one bacteria sample at 1038 South Water that showed a presence for total coliform so that is why that area is still under precautionary boil water notice, City Manager Bob Milner wrote in a text message Tuesday afternoon. I am waiting on the lab to email or call me back with yesterdays results. We have collected samples today and sent them to the lab. Hopefully if all passed, we can rescind the notice by noon tomorrow. If it shows another presence for total coliform, we will have to keep testing until we get two, back-toback clear samples. Milner added that total coliform is a bacteria but is not likely to cause illness. Their presence indicates that the water supply may be vulnerable to contamination by more harmful microorganisms, he wrote. While the notice remained citywide, Bradford School bottled water for schools and other facilities served by the citys water system. Assistant Superintendent David Harris said the district purchased six pallets of water from Walmart for around $1,600. He added that the districts maintenance department centers. Harris acknowledged some spot shortages at isolated locations, adding that with the maintenance department sometimes struggled to keep pace with deliveries. rationing at the elementary schools may have contributed to shortages, as teachers gave entire bottles to students instead of lesser portions. It might have been better if we cupped it out, he said. He also said that administrators were instructed to purchase water using a district credit card if shortages occurred. Deliveries to the schools continued through Friday. Middle school Principal John Green said students were growing accustomed to the water restrictions. I think this is the second or third time this has happened since Ive been here, he said. Starke Elementary Principal Jennifer Vaughan said her students were taking the water restrictions in stride. She said district staff members distributed the bottled water throughout campus and students have had unrestricted access to the supply. Some kids bring their own water to school, she said, others dont drink much during the day. Of course, when you tell them there is no water, then they all want water.

Milner: Starke addressing overtime expensesBY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The numbers Starke City Commissioners were reviewing during discussion of employee raises did not offer a complete view of what those employees take home. The numbers were based on employees hourly rates, but did not include additional earnings phone or vehicle usage. Most importantly, the salary totals did not include overtime pay, which for many has greatly enhanced their annual incomes. In fact, the overtime payments were so generous that state auditors criticized Starke for not exercising enough control of overtime. Then there was a case of a former employee who was let go for falsifying her hours to receive additional overtime, hours that the former city manager approved. Current Starke City Manager Bob Milner said overtime expenses are down considerable this year. Its something he and Chuck Oliver, the recently hired utilities director, as well as the other department supervisors are working on together he said. Im not taking all the credit for that, please understand, but one of the things I did last year when I reviewed it, it was a lot of overtime everywhere, he said. Getting overtime under control is no small task. Auditors recently revisited the extent of the problem in a follow-up of their operational audit of the city. Several years after the original corrected the problem. From the audit follow-up: Our examination of city records and discussions with city personnel indicated that, as of October 2017, the city had not performed formal overtime effective use of human resources. According to the city clerk, he plans for addressing overtime usage and determined that it was more cost effective to pay for overtime than to hire additional employees. However, although we requested, city personnel did not provide documentation evidencing the determination. the city paid overtime pay of $163,467 to 42 employees, $193,897 to 48 employees and $233,422 to 55 employees, during the 2014, 2015, and 2016 calendar years, respectively. As shown in Tables 3, 4 and 5, our examination of payroll records for these overtime payments disclosed: Nine employees with total overtime payments ranging from 26 to 62 percent of their base salaries for the 2014 calendar year. The overtime payments to these nine employees was 50 percent of the total citywide overtime paid (excluding 2014 calendar year. Eight employees with total overtime payments ranging from 25 to 74 percent of their base salaries for the 2015 calendar year. The overtime payments to these eight employees was 49 percent of the total citywide overtime paid (excluding 2015 calendar year. Ten employees with total overtime payments ranging from 27 to 86 percent of their base salaries for the 2016 calendar year. The overtime payments to these 10 employees was 55 percent of the total citywide overtime paid (excluding 2016 calendar year. Seven of the nine employees receiving the largest amount of overtime payments as a percentage base pay during the 2014 calendar year also earned the largest amount of overtime payments as a percentage of base pay during the 2015 calendar year. Six employees earned the largest amount of overtime payments as a percentage of base pay during the 2014, 2015 and 2016 calendar years. A look at this years budget shows many of the line items allocating overtime budgets to the various department shows many have cut spending, just as the city manager had said. With more than three-quarters of the year gone, less than 57 percent of the budgeted overtime for the enterprise fund had been spent. The police department had spent just 58 percent of its overtime budget. seemed in danger of overspending its overtime budget with less than $10,000 to go for the rest of the year. Milner said they will lower department with the recent hiring of nine new part-time employees. station when the full-timers are answering calls. Having the city isnt paying overtime to offduty crew is answering calls or someone is using leave time. added to the shift rotation as administrative shift. Democrats meet Aug. 27The Bradford County Democratic Party will hold its regular monthly meeting on Monday, Aug. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Capital City Bank meeting room, 350 N. Temple Ave. in Starke, just north of the Santa Fe College Andrews Center. All Democrats are welcome.Drink trackerIn the United States, a standard alcoholic drink contains 0.6 ounces of pure alcohol.

Knowing basic swimming safety tips can ensure you have a fun and safe day in the water and avoid mishap or injury. First, make sure you and your group know swimming Before you get in, check the pools cleanliness and see if a lifeguard is on duty. When you get in the water, swim with your children or keep an eye on them at all times. In open water, ensure there are swimming boundaries marked by a rope or other marker and water depth indicators separating shallow and deep areas. Check out the list below to ensure your water safety habits are up-to-date. Actively supervise children in and around water, giving them your undivided attention. When several adults are present and children are swimming, designate one adult as the water watcher. Install door and window alarms to alert you if a child wanders into the pool area. Educate your kids about swimming safety. Every child is different, so enroll them in swimming lessons when you feel they are ready. No one is too old to enroll in swimming lessons. Swim with a buddy, never alone. Use life jackets, but dont rely on swimming aids. Everyone should learn CPR, including children. Educate your children about the dangers of drain entanglement and entrapment and teach them to never play or swim near drains or suction outlets. Make sure backyard pools have four-sided fencing thats at least 4 feet high and a selfclosing, self-latching gate. Keep pool gates locked when pool is not in use. Only jump or dive in an area with deep water. According to the CDC, about 10 people die from unintentional drowning a day in America. In Florida, drowning is the leading cause of death among children ages one to four. To learn more about water safety, please visit the CDCs healthy swimming page or Safe Kids Worldwide at www.safekids.org.Recipe of the WeekZucchini and Potato Bake Ingredients 2 medium zucchini, quartered and cut into large pieces 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped 1 clove garlic, sliced 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs 1/4 cup olive oil paprika to taste salt to taste ground black pepper to taste Directions Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

The Florida Department of Healths Deputy Secretary for County Health Systems, Paul Myers asked commissioners appointed to the position by Florida Surgeon General Celeste Philip. I can tell you that Ms. Johns is an absolute star in our department, Myers said. Shes an experienced public health practitioner.

Our school nurses saw 22,462 visits in the schools last year, she added, and Im happy to say 19,700 of them were sent back to class.

The Bradford Environmental Forum offered state and local candidates the opportunity to deliver their environmental candidates attended, a crowd of about 50 listened to the candidates views and questioned preserving sensitive lands and phosphate mining in Bradford and Union counties. The speakers were Tom Wells and Yvonne Hinson running for Congressional District 3 from Gainesville; Paul Still running for Florida House District 19 from Sampson City; and Bradford County Commission District 4 candidates Tom Germano and Stasia Rudolph of Melrose. District 4 candidate Danny Riddick had a family emergency. Wells is a nuclear physicist, and Still has a doctorate in plant pathology. Hinson has a masters degree in education, while Germano and Rudolph have degrees in business administration. The crowd was pleased to see people with higher education willing to serve Despite differing party shared common ground on environmental issues. They all acknowledged the fragility of the aquifer; all were keenly aware of mitigation efforts underway. Still said by re-directing excess water from Chemours to Keystone, the state could save most of the $41 million that is currently allocated for the Black Creek Project that would pump water from Black Creek at Penny Farms to Keystone. Taking the Chemours water out of Starke would also Creek in Starke, according to Still. The candidates talked about land preservation and conservation as an economic boost in ecotourism and related commercial enterprises. They even talked about affordable housing and the need for careful planning, insprawl. All were opposed to the phosphate mine proposal in Bradford and Union counties as a risk to the wells and the aquifer, and as a detriment to property values and future growth. Refreshments were served, and it was announced that to walk the talk, no Styrofoam would be used. The plastic cups and glass mugs would be washed and reused, and the paper plates composted or burned. At the end, less than half a bag of trash was it had been a great success. The Brooker Community Center also gained a podium, donated by Rudolph. Emcees Carol Mosley from Graham and Kate Ellison from Melrose timed the candidates and asked for audience respect for all points of view. Rather than rowdiness, they suggested a thumbs up or down, or American Sign Language silent clapping (holding hands up and shaking them). The audience enjoyed silent clapping, and it provided needed comic relief. The Bradford Environmental Forum group said this is just the start of bringing together thinkers and doers to share environmental expertise and planning ideas with local stakeholders.

I have deep roots in Bradford County, born and raised here, proud to work and live in this community. I will be easily accessible to the commuity as your School board member It is important to me to support the teachers, parents and students of Bradford County. The passion that I have for my family, friends, church and community will be the same passion I will bring to our school system. I greatly appreciate your support and vote. My contact infoniculag@embarqmail.com Pol. Adv. paid for and Approved By Gayle Nicula for Bradford County School Board District 2 200 students. Southside has 75 faculty and staff and more than 600 students. That was an adjustment, and Im still adjusting to it, Loper said. Previously, I would know just about all of the kids names. Id like to be able to do that here. I dont know how possible thatll be. Whatever position shes worked in, Loper has kept in mind what her father, who worked for Bradford Countys road department, and her mother, who worked for Starke Uniform, taught her. They instilled in me that you are judged on the job you do, Loper said. Ive always tried to do the best job I could and to lead by example. Loper has had several others serve as examples in her life in regard to working in education, including a teacher she had at Bradford Middle School.Inspired to work in educationA nurse. A surgeon. Those were a couple of ideas Loper had when she thought about what she wanted to be when she grew up. She eventually became interested inspiration in the form of Linda I remember sitting in her class and really enjoying it and just being so engaged in whatever she was talking about, Loper said, adding, I could just stay in her class all day. My thought was, Hey, I can do that. Loper liked the fact that with her students. In fact, Loper after she moved on to Bradford High School. The two were pen-pals. She made it a point to have a personal relationship with her students and to connect with them, Loper said. Loper, a 1993 BHS graduate as well as a graduate of Santa Fe and Saint Leo colleges, began her teaching career as a substitute at Southside during the 1997-98 school year. She said the experience made her feel right at home. She had chosen the right career to pursue and enjoyed helping children. Teaching them or making them excited about learning is the biggest greatness there is to being teacher, Loper said. She began working full-time at grade. Loper also taught third grade over the course of six years at Southside. She then became a teacher at Lawtey Elementary School, where she taught kindergarten for nine years. It was at Lawtey Elementary where Loper met a mentor in Lynn Bryan, who would serve as principal after a stint as a reading coach. Bryan encouraged Loper to pursue educational leadership and move into administration, noting that Loper already held leadership roles on several school committees. Loper said Bryan told her, I really see a lot of traits in you that would lend themselves to being a really good school administrator. Loper thought her career path would lead her into exceptional student education due to raising her son, Myles, who is autistic. Bryans words got her to considering a move into administration that and the fact her husband, John, had already been suggesting such a move. For a few months, I tossed that around in my head because I had really never given it any thought, Loper said. With the encouragement of my husband, who had been telling me that for years, I jumped all in. While working toward that end, Loper began working at Brooker and Hampton elementary schools as a curriculum resource teacher in 2014. She described working for Principal Brenda Donaldson, who is now retired, the greatest gift in the world. It helped her prepare her for the role she now She was professional. She was ethical. She was approachable. She was really great at communicating with teachers, students and parents, Loper said. She wasnt afraid to give me the ability to help out with some of those roles and in the everyday running of the school. She liked to call it onthe-job training. Loper received support from both Donaldson and Bryan when she was hired as Southsides assistant principal. Bryan sent her a card, reminding me I do have people cheering for me, Loper said, while Donaldson sent her a text that read, Youve worked hard for this. I know youre going to do a great job.Interacting with students and parents, bonding One of Lopers goals as an administrator is to become familiar with students. She wants them to see her around campus and in their classrooms. She wants them to see her out in the community away from school. I want to be approachable, she said, adding, I want (students) to be able to say, She cares about me. Shes always around, even when I dont need her. Another goal is to be a facilitator when it comes to opening avenues of communication between the school and parents. Loper wants to let parents know what their children are learning and what events are taking place at the school. Communication takes on many forms, but Loper said she really wants to focus on the schools social media presence. Facebook is a really big deal, so Im trying to stay current and increase our Facebook page interactions, letting parents know were out there, she said. Even though they may not have internet access at home, they have their phones. They can easily pull it up. Im looking for other ideas and ways to communicate with parents. As an administrator, relationships with school faculty and staff are important as well. Loper said shed like to organize outings and activities to build upon the family type relationship that shes found already exists at Southside. She also wants to pay particular Jolina Fowler, Anquil Jackson, Devonna Rusk, Andrea Wanton, Samule Coe, Bryan West, Chyna Lynum, (middle, l-r) Christopher Dinkins, Cody Smith, Janice Thornton, Dallas Teague, Lindsay Haddock, Courtney Russell, (back, l-r) Loper, Imaria Smith, the class, is not pictured.LOPERContinued from 1A attention to teachers and help them take care of themselves. As a former teacher, she knows its easy to neglect your own wellbeing such as skipping lunch by getting so wrapped up in work. I want them to be healthy and happy and at peace with themselves, Loper said.At home and on the road with familyJust as its important for teachers to not forget about their own well-being, its important to leave work at work and focus on family when at home. For Loper, family is husband, John, who coaches PE at Bradford Middle School as well as coaching BMS and BHS cross country and track daughters Lauryn and Layne. Im trying very hard to plug into my family when Im home and unplug from work, Loper said. I think Im doing a pretty good job of that so far. The family enjoys just being together, but also enjoys going to movies and traveling. This past summer, for example, the Lopers went to New Jersey and New York. Loper and her husband believe children. I just want to visit as many places as I can, Loper said. Growing up, I didnt have the opportunity to travel and go on vacations because my parents had to work. We just didnt have that opportunity. John and I try to that experience. Loper has assisted her husband with his cross country and track and now enjoys being a cross country mom as both daughters participate in the sport at BMS. Because of her son, Loper has devoted time to raising awareness of autism. For example, a May 20, 2010, Telegraph-TimesMonitor story chronicled how Loper spearheaded Autism Awareness Week events at Lawtey Elementary School. Students donated 50 cents each day to dress up in accordance to a days particular theme. Money raised was donated to the University of Florida Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, which serves 14 counties, including Bradford and Union. Since Myles was diagnosed in 2008, weve made a lot of growth with awareness, Loper said.Heading into the yearNow at the start of her 20th full-time year in education, Loper school where her career began. Southside staff and faculty have been welcoming. Theyve been receptive, little treats theyve left for me. That makes me feel really good. It makes me feel like, OK. Im doing a good job. Doing a good job includes keeping her word. At the end of the day, I ask myself, OK. Did I do what I said I was going to do? I think with teachers and parents and even students when you say Im going to do this, Im going to follow up on it or Im going to get back to you, you need to do that, Loper said. Thats vital in building relationships.Register disabilities with emergency management Every Floridian needs to prepare for hurricane season and that includes people with disabilities and access and functional needs. Disasters affect everyone but somelike seniors, people with chronic conditions, the economically disadvantaged, and those with access or functional needsare often disproportionally affected. The Florida Division of Emergency Management partnered with every local emergency management agency in the state to create a registry so residents with disabilities or access and functional needs can receive assistance during a disaster. Floridians can register with their local emergency management agency through the Florida Special Needs Registry statewide registry provides information to prepare for disasters or other emergencies. Registration is free and offer will only be used to plan for and provide services during a disaster. Additional information on preparedness for individuals with disabilities, including how to create a disaster plan, is available at Ready.gov.Food Pantry changing distribution daysThe Bradford Ecumenical Food Pantry is now receiving deliveries of fresh produce and dairy three times a week, meaning clients can pick up these items more often. Beginning Sept. 1, clients can pick up fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products, and bread and pastries every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. Full orders are still available to clients once every two months.

Thursday, August 23, 2018 Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section 9B Cooler mornings should be here in just a few weeks, which means well be seeing ticks in greater numbers soon. Are you prepared? While there are over 900 species worldwide, there have only been 7 species of concern in the United States. However, this year a new tick has arrived in the U.S. from the Asia Pacific region, the Longhorned Tick, bringing the total to 8. Narrowing it down to just Florida, we see 5 specific species which are the Brown Dog Tick, American Dog Tick, Black Legged Tick, Lone Star Tick, and Gulf Coast Tick. Ticks are close relatives to spiders as they are members of the class Arachnida, which is just one more thing that makes them disgusting. Ticks feed on animal blood and they often harbor dangerous disease-causing organisms. These organisms are transferred while the tick is feeding. This is why its important to remove ticks as soon as they are found. There are currently at least 12 different tickbourne HUMAN illnesses in the United States, not including the strains that can infect your pet. While Lyme disease gets a lot of attention in the media, it is definitely not the only disease that should be ruled out when symptoms or suspicion of disease is present. At our clinic, we often see Rocky Mountain Spotted fever rather than Lyme disease. This is why its important to run complete tick panels to determine what may be going on with your dog. The good news for your pet is there are ways to prevent ticks. With the approval of Bravecto a couple of years ago, we now have a very effective means of stopping ticks in their tracks. Bravecto is effective against most ticks for 12 weeks. In fact, based on research emerging, Bravecto may actually be able to block transmission of some of these diseases due to its ability to quickly kill ticks. Even if your pet is on a tick preventive measure, its important to check you pet regularly when returning from areas where tick exposure may have occurred. Heres hoping you and your pet have a tick free Fall!! The Weekly Paw Print: October has been designated as Adopt A This week we salute the unsung heroes of veterinary medicine. Im talking about National Veterinary Technician Week. The individuals you see assisting the veterinarian do more than you can see in the exam room alone. Veterinary technicians deliver medications, administer and monitor anesthesia, assist the veterinarian in surgery, collect and run lab tests, and so much more. They do all that they do while remaining patient and compassionate. They never lose sight of what their mission is and why they are there. The veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and the veterinary receptionists make up the veterinary team. Veterinarians rely on their team to care and provide for their patients beyond just the medicine. This week I would like to personally thank my awesome team. I could not do what I do without their help, their inspiration to be the best, and their compassion. It is my privilege to work with each and every one of them. Next time you see a member of your veterinary health care team, give them two paws up! 904 964 6411 The Weekly Paw Print: October has been designated as Adopt A This week we salute the unsung heroes of veterinary medicine.
