Director, ACORN Clinic The Wendell N. Rollason Achievement Award is presented to the individual who has contributed most toward the goals of the Florida Rural Health Association and who has provided an enduring contribution to rural health care. In the spirit of Wendell Rollason, the individual will be honored for his/her compassion, unselfishness and commitment in seeking solutions in the delivery of rural health care or quality of life in rural Florida. The ACORN Clinics Dr. Mimi Balch received the Wendell N. Rollason Achievement Award at the annual Florida Rural Health Association conference in Gainesville on Nov. 21. A graduate of the University of Florida College of Medicine and residency program in the Department of Community Health and Family Medicine, and certified by the American Board of Family Practice, Dr. Balch is a highly skilled clinician providing primary care services in a region experiencing the highest health disparities in our state. She has been the ACORN Clinics linchpin and primary care provider for 16 years of dedicated service, acting as the co-medical director since 2004. Her duties include supervising staff physician assistants, providing standard of care protocols for the clinic and coordination of patient care among the volunteer providers. In a typical year, Dr. Balch sees over 460 patients, many having quarterly appointments. The ACORN Clinic serves patients from 18 counties in North Central Florida principally Alachua, Bradford and Union. It is a key part of the local healthcare safety net and has provided medical, dental, mental health and social service referrals with discounted sliding scale fees since 1974. The clinic and its patients are extremely fortunate to have a physician of Dr. Balchs caliber. Her clinical expertise and intelligence would allow her to work in many other settings that would give her more prominence, but she has chosen to make ACORN Clinics Dr. Balch recognized for contribution to rural health care Receives the Wendell N. Rollason Achievement Award BY ALISHA REDDING Clerk, Town of Raiford The Town of Raiford held its first-ever Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, Nov. 30, at the Raiford Community Center. Event organizers Alisha Redding, town clerk, and Sheila Fink worked tirelessly collecting food donations that were used to defray costs. Redding and Fink thank the following businesses for their generous donations: Walmart, Winn Dixie, Save-ALot, Hardees and Spires IGA. Christmas classics were read and a country breakfast was served. Santa made his grand entry to every childs delight. Each child received a treat bag and a small gift from Santa as they sat on his lap and gave them his list. Redding and Fink thank the following volunteers who helped make the Santa breakfast a success: Tonya Koehler, Chase Wilkerson, Angelina Fink, Emily Johnson, Jimmy Fink, Alvin Griffis, Geraldine Griffis, Becky Bryant, Frances Thornton, Hunter Redding, Chuck Redding, Gina Richard, Kenny Richard, Channing Dobbs and Frank Bridges. Redding and Fink donated two bikes, which were used in a drawing that was given away at the end of the morning to Summer Bridges of Raiford and Marit Tubberville of Sanderson.

BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Nov. 22, the Union County Sheriffs Office was notified by a 22-year-old woman of inappropriate behavior from an employee of Dr. Marvin W. Johnson who operates a family practice clinic located next to Lake Butler Hospital. The victim stated that on Nov. 4, around 6:30 p.m., she arrived for an appointment at the doctors office to be treated for fibromyalgia and pain management. She reported receiving treatment from Oscar Armengol, 53, a medical assistant who is an 18-year employee of Johnsons office. The victim reported receiving numerous medications in pill and intravenous form, including Lortab, Xanax and Celebrex, and as the medication began to take effect, the suspect took photos of her and began massaging her in the areas he administered the medication. While the victim was disrobed, Armengol then sexually assaulted her for about 30 seconds while the victim asked him to stop. According to Union County Sheriff Jerry Whitehead, the victim told Armengol she couldnt afford the pain medicine she needed for her ailment, so he offered to treat her after hours. Investigators are determining whether Armengol was allowed to administer drugs under any circumstances. Someone who is not licensed, like Armengol, cant administer drugs even during the clinics hours, is what weve been told, said Whitehead. After investigating this incident, UCSO received a search warrant for Armengols Gainesville home. On Nov. 26, Union County investigators, along with Alachua County Sheriffs Office, executed the search warrant at Armengols residence at 4151 NW 43 rd Place, Lot 604. As part of the search warrant, officers seized computer equipment, a hard drive, digital and video cameras and equipment, cash and various prescription medications: Oxycodone, Alprazolam, Adderall, Cymbalta and Viagra. Armengol was arrested by the Alachua County Sheriffs Office on probable cause for charges out of Union County. He was charged with sexual battery with special conditions on a victim over 12 years of age, a first-degree felony; practicing medicine without an active license, a third-degree felony; and a ACSO charge of delivering/distributing drugs, a third-degree felony. Armengol is in the Alachua County Jail on the above charges with a $600,000 bond. Dr. Johnsons son, Whit Johnson, who works in the office, told Action News in Jacksonville, He was a great employee. He did surgeries. He did, anything you can think of, he could do. What ever he was doing, it wasnt to his consent. (Dr. Johnson) had no idea he was up to this. Armengol stated to law enforcement officers that he is a doctor in the country of Honduras but not licensed to practice in the United States. He also told them that he had taken the test twice to become a medical doctor here but had failed. You get a total of three chances. The medical assistant apparently treated other patients after hours, as well, usually those who were poor or had no insuranceallegedly without Dr. Johnsons knowledge. Over the years, many residents relied on Armengol, who did everything from administer shots to massaging away joint pain. Many are shocked to hear the allegations. You mean, Oscar? It just doesnt sound like him, patient Gabriel Alexander told WJXT News4Jax. Ive known him for years while coming here. My grandmother, she really knows him because shes been going there for years and its just crazy. Its hard to believe, Lake Butler resident Jeremiah Parrish told First Coast News. I hate it for the community, Whitehead said. I hate it for Dr. Johnson. Johnson, 82, has practiced medicine in Lake Butler for decades. He graduated from the University of Alabama School of Medicine in 1960. Medical assistant charged with drugging, sexually assaulting patient Oscar Armengol an 18-year employee of Dr. Johnsons clinic reads a Christmas classic.

Donations can be dropped off anytime theyre open. her lifes work the medically underserved population of rural north Florida. Staff members have seen Dr. Balch notice the smallest abnormality on a lab test and follow through to make an early diagnosis of a problem that would have become much more significant had it not been detected early. Regardless of whether she is taking care of an engineer who is out of work or a farm laborer who didnt finish high school, she strives to bring that patient to his or her healthiest condition through lifestyle counseling, education on their disease and medical management. She never settles for less than the best patient care. Dr. Balchs patients are very loyal to her. For example, over the years several patients have transferred to another provider because of insurance or transportation challenges. More often than not, they return to Dr. Balch due to her outstanding care. She also plays a prominent role in educating students and collaborating with colleagues, including volunteer practitioners. This includes training medical assistants and medical students and working with doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students and nurse practitioners. At least three medical students train with Dr. Balch each year. She instills in them an appreciation of the value of primary care medicine as well as the rewards of serving a rural practice. The success of the ACORN Clinic relies on the consistent hand of Dr. Balchs medical leadership. The clinic is located at 23320 North S.R. 235 in Brooker. Call 352-485-1133 to make an appointment.

Most people would also claim to not appreciate people lying to them. However, some people seem more interested in hearing lies than the truth. In Isaiah 30:10, the people told the prophets, Do not prophecy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. The people actually wanted to be lied to! Today, when people reject the teaching of the Bible they are turning aside to fables or lies (2 Timothy 4:3-4). Instead of being concerned about hearing a message that appeals to us, we should desire to hear the truth even if it condemns us. Remember the truth shall make you free (John 8:32). A failure to love the truth will result in a failure to be saved (2 Thessalonians 2:10). Let us be the type of people who Buy the truth, and do not sell it (Proverbs 23:23).

The Union County Sheriffs Office believes the same suspect(s) did the shootings at each location: two locations on Southwest C.R. 239 and one location on Southwest 92 nd Way. There are a total of four victims with damage to multiple items of property, including items within their homes and vehicles. Evidence found at each scene points to suspect(s) driving to each location and using a .22-caliber firearm to fire rounds toward the victims houses and vehicles. Damage included a bullet into a television and another one that traveled through a recliner and into an exterior wall. At another location a bullet went through a vehicle window and one went through the front door of the residence. At a third location, two vehicles were damaged with bullet holes in the hood and windshield. No one was hurt during these crimes. UCSO stated that this is a very serious crime and has multiple deputies and investigators assigned to solving it. Florida Statute 790.19 covers shooting into or throwing deadly objects into dwellings whether occupied or not as a second-degree felony. The sheriffs office also stated that suspect(s) involved can also be charged with criminal mischief up to a third-degree felony. UCSO collected evidence at each of the crime scenes and rushed it to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Lab in Jacksonville for processing.

Shooting and criminal mischief, UCSO seeking suspects Homes, car shot into by .22-caliber firearm; no one hurt Clay Electric members report attempted scams Clay Electric Cooperative said two of its members in the Salt Springs District were recently approached by individuals falsely claiming to represent the co-op. The utility reported in a press release that one member in the Lynne area said she received a call from someone claiming to be from Clay Electric who was attempting to collect a past due bill related to a recent rate increase. A cooperative representative said the utility does not collect past due amounts in this manner. If a member has an overdue bill, he or she will likely receive a call from our automated phone messaging system as a reminder to call the cooperative to arrange payment, said John Bennett, member relations representative for the Salt Springs District. Theyll also receive a courtesy notice in the mail. Bennett added that members should never share confidential, personal information over the phone. In a second incident, a member was approached at home by two men claiming to be contractors for Clay Electric. They told the member they needed to check the windows at her residence. The woman became suspicious and called Clay Electric which told the woman the coop does not have contractors that check windows and that she should call the sheriffs office. The two men left the area. Bennett said Clay field personnel wear uniforms and carry identification, and can be asked for ID if members have any questions about who they represent. Contractors working for the co-op are also properly identified and can provide ID if asked. He also said Clay Electric personnel do not make home visits to check on windows or other items.

They are excited to get a new sign for their clubhouse this year. President Ann Hendricks and daughter Christy Hendricks attended the district meeting in Jacksonville on behalf of the club. In September, Ann and Christy attended the General Federation of Womens Clubs State Fall Conference in Orlando and had a wonderful time meeting with other members from all over the state of Florida. LBWC celebrated 100 years of service last year and is a part of GFWC. Founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., GFWC is an international womens organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. It is one of the worlds largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, womens volunteer service organizations. For more than 110 years GFWC has been a unifying force, bringing together local womens clubs from around the country and throughout the world. Although there is considerable diversity in the ages, interests and experiences of GFWC clubwomen, all are united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service. The members of the local club, LBWC, support many charities and also fund a scholarship for local teenagers and women. This $500 scholarship is awarded to a local woman who wishes to attend college. They also sponsor the Hugh OBrian Youth Leadership award each year for a deserving student selected by teaching personnel at Union County High School. The club hosts an annual Valentines luncheon with proceeds going to the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society. Additionally, the club supports Canine Companions, Hacienda Girls Ranch, Ronald McDonald House and Boggy Creek Camp for kids with cancer. They have a Christmas Tree Opportunity Drawing fundraiser in October and November that helps with the expenses and upkeep of their historical clubhouse. The clubhouse was the first Union County Courthouse, built in 1921 and moved to its current location in 1935. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. LBWC encourages local women 18 years of age and over to visit them at their monthly meeting at the clubhouse located at 285 N.E. First Ave. in Lake Butler.

6A Union County Times Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013 Like it has for the past few years, the Lake Butler Rotary Club distributed special dictionaries to all third graders at Lake Butler Elementary School on Nov. 19. It includes Rotary distributes dictionaries to third graders UCI promotes Robinson to captain Union Correctional Institution celebrated the promotion of Lt. Tommy T. T.T. Robinson to the rank of captain on Sept. 17. Robinson will be leading the institutions C Shift, one of the two night shifts, as officer in charge. In that capacity he will have primary responsibility for everything that occurs at the institution during the evening hours. Ironically, his brother, Captain T.J. Robinson, is officer in charge of D Shift, the other night shift at UCI. Captain T.T. Robinson has been with the Department of Corrections for 15 years and has worked in almost every capacity an officer can work at a major institution. Most recently, he served as administrative lieutenant for three dorms in the institutions Northwest Unit, which houses inmates with special medical and mental health needs. Robinson is a member of the institutions Rapid Response Team. RRT members are the institutions first responders to almost any emergency situation. They continually train with special munitions and techniques they may need in order to deal with emergency incidents and disturbances. This requires a high degree of physical fitness and a cool head in high-stress situations. Robinson always exhibits both. Robinson also acts as the leader of the institutions honor guard. UCI is one of only two institutions that have an honor guard in DOCs Region II and those two honor guards participate in final services for any DOC family who requests their presence. UCIs 18-member, allvolunteer honor guard provides a commemorative flag and presents it to the family in a solemn flag-folding ceremony at the gravesite. The flag comes with a commemorative storage box so that the family can keep it as a memento. The group also posts the colors, provides the playing of Taps on a trumpet and executes a 21-gun salute, if they are requested to. The honor guard attends the viewing, the funeral and the graveside services, usually over a period of two days. They will even act as pall bearers, at the familys request. As volunteers, Robinson and the other members of the honor guard dont get paid extra to sacrifice their evenings, weekends and leave time. They also donate their time to meet additional training requirements. Being a member of the honor guard is one of the most prestigious volunteer services any correctional officer can provide, said Robinson, but it is certainly no easy assignment. We often will get called on a Monday and have to be ready to perform on Wednesday, he said. That means the team has to be assembled and their special uniforms complete with white ascots and gloves have to be cleaned and pressed and ready to go. The members go out of their way to ensure they are ready at a moments notice. Robinson always exhibits outstanding dedication to his God, his family, his institution and his fellow staff members. UCIs Lieutenant T.T. Robinson (second from left) was promoted to the rank of captain and pinned with his new rank insignia on Sept. 17. Participating in the pinning ceremony were, (lr) Colonel Kevin Box, Captain Robinson, Major Daniel Manning and Major Stanley Peterson. Polk promoted at UCIs new work camp Jason Polk was promoted to the rank of lieutenant at Union Correctional Institution on Nov. 4. Polk has been with the Department of Corrections for 23 years and first began going to the dogs in 1991 when he joined the institutions K-9 Team as a parttime officer. He soon became a full-time K-9 officer and was promoted to sergeant in 2004. He worked his way up to become the supervisor of the institutions highly successful K-9 Team. When he first became a K-9 officer 20 years ago, he was told he needed to be on call 24/7, and was always available for duty. Even after his promotion he will be available for call-outs, but he will not be involved in the daily operation of the K-9 yard. Polk is highly dedicated and used to hard work, since he was responsible for the daily training of the institutions tracking dogs and also had to be available at the drop of a hat to trail a fleeing felon or locate a missing child. In one incident this year, Polk and the team were called by area law enforcement to track a man who had taken an overdose and then run into the woods, intending to commit suicide. Polk and the K-9 Team successfully located him in time to save his life. On Nov. 4, Polk traded his camouflage and snake boots for a white shirt and gold bars as he officially became a lieutenant and was tasked with supervising all of the work squads assigned to the institutions newly opened work camp. Warden Diane Andrews said she was very pleased about the promotion and expected Polks transition to be a smooth one in view of his many years of experience with DOC. Polk said he was honored to be chosen. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best lieutenants in the entire state during my career, said Polk. I dont expect to be able to hold a candle to them, but I certainly appreciate this opportunity to try. I certainly intend to do my best. Col. Kevin Box (left) and Major Stanley Peterson (right) pin the new rank insignia on the collar of Lt. Jason Polk at his promotion ceremony Nov. 4. Lee, Patterson chosen as top UCI staffers Union Correctional Institution named its top officer and employee for the month of October. Officer of the Month for October is Sgt. Willie Lee and Employee of the Month is teacher Bennie Patterson. Sgt. Lee has worked for the Department of Corrections for 27 years and has served as a sergeant for nearly 20. He is currently the administrative sergeant for one of the institutions mental health treatment units. Sgt. Lee was nominated because of his hard work and dedication on a daily basis. He is described as a team player who always demonstrates a positive attitude. He is very knowledgeable in his duties and works well with both staff members and inmates. Sgt. Lee was especially commended for going above and beyond the call of duty in helping a large number of the institutions medical and mental health professionals relocate their offices from a building that is set to be renovated. According to Operations Management Consultant Tammy Macey, Sgt. Lee went so far as to prepare offices, move furniture and put up shelving when staff members had to be relocated quickly. None of those tasks are in Sgt. Lees job description, but he accomplished them with a smile along with anything else that was needed. I, along with all the R Dorm staff, would like to thank (Sgt. Lee) and acknowledge his kindness and teamwork. We could not have done it without him, said Macey. Patterson works in the educational program at UCI, helping inmates sharpen their knowledge and skills as they prepare to leave prison and rejoin society. He teaches literacy, adult basic education and GED courses. He has worked with the Department of Corrections for only 18 months, but has been teaching for five years. He taught language arts and mathematics in the public school system, prior to signing on with DOC. He was nominated as Employee of the Month by Library Technician Steven Taylor, who said Patterson has impressed him by his hard work to further the educational achievements of UCI inmates. He works hard for his students, wrote Taylor. Taylor pointed out that Patterson has purchased and donated a projector to the institution for use in educational classes. He said that Patterson believes if he can better prepare his students for the outside world, then their chances of becoming productive citizens once they are released will be greatly improved. This lowers the possibility that they will return to prisonwhich is the whole idea of our re-entry program, said Taylor. Col. Kevin Box (left) and Asst. Warden Steve Rossiter congratulate the UCI October Officer and Employee of the Month, Sgt. Willie Lee and teacher Bennie Patterson. Six UCI staff members earned service pins on Oct. 15. They were congratulated by the leadership staff at a supervisors meeting. Shown here are (back row, l-r) Asst. Warden David Maddox, Col. Kevin Box, Sgt. James Hughes (5 years of service to the state of Florida), Sgt. Kevin Howe (30 years), Sgt. Robert Kirkland (15 years), Sgt. Aaron Bass (5 years), Asst. Warden Steve Rossiter, Dr. Phillip Springer (10 years), Warden Diane Andrews, (front row, l-r) Classification Supervisor Mike Davis, Asst. Classification Supervisor Tommy Dicks and Officer Geneva Webb (5 years). Employees of the state of the Florida receive a service pin after each five-year period of service. UCI promoted six new sergeants on Aug. 30. Asst. Warden David Maddox said it was exciting to watch six people prepare themselves to start a new journey in their careers. New sergeants are (l-r) James Meisner (eight years with DOC), Deandra Rob inson (six years), Letosha Joshua (three years), Donald Rosier (five years), Robert Rhodes (six years) and Joel Combs (three years). Five of the six were already UCI staff members prior to their promotion. Joshua joins UCI from Baker Correctional In stitution. All six were pinned with their rank insignia on Aug. 30.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It is fulfilling a lifelong passion, but more than anything, Bob Quicks coast-to-coast bicycle ride across the United States is a way of inspiring people to embrace active lifestyles. Quick, a Roy, Utah, resident, is in the advanced stages of coronary artery disease, thanks to a hereditary condition. He suffered a massive heart attack in 2004, has 16 stents and had a pacemaker/defibrillator implanted earlier this year. He hopes his journeywhich also includes his son, Conradhelps get people off the couch.

Maybe they go two blocks. Maybe they go three in a year. Those endorphins start kicking in, and they start feeling better. Quicks journey is also one of thanks. Thats what brought him to Starke Fire Rescue during the week of Thanksgiving and why his journey, once complete, will have consisted of stops to more than 80 fire departments. You see, Quick actually went into cardiac arrest in 2004 and was technically dead for more than three minutes. Paramedics with Roy City Fire and Rescue resuscitated Quick. They never gave up on me, said Quick, who is now an honorary member and chef of the Roy City department. They worked on me hard. They worked on me diligently. Thats the reason Im here. To bring attention to Americas hometown heroes, Quick made fire stations across the U.S. the stopping points throughout his ride, which began Sept. 2 in San Diego and ended this week in St. Augustine. Theyre the warriors, said Quick, who planned to stay overnight at two more fire departments once he left Starke. When people see them out in public, they need to thank them. Quick has stayed at several hotels on his journey, but that was because he needed a place from time to time that had a tub he could lie in and soak his muscles. Outside of that, he has enjoyed experiencing the uniqueness of each fire station he has stopped at and has also had the opportunity to witness some heart-touching Hersey signs one of Bob looks on. moments.

Bennett talked about the importance of beef cattle, while Toms talked BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It is an effort to bring agriculture to the forefront and to make a connection between those who work on farms and those who dont, but Farm-City Week is really just a continuation of what already takes place in Bradford County, according to Bob Hochmuth, the guest speaker at the Nov. 22 Bradford County Extension Farm-City luncheon, which was held at the Bradford County Fairgrounds. The folks here, I think, know their farmers more so than most counties where I work, said Hochmuth, a multicounty vegetable production agent and statewide small farms coordinator based at the Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center in Live Oak. Hochmuth said Bradford County reminds him of Maryland, where he lived previously, because of its presence of roadside produce stands. He said people in Bradford County are not only aware of those stands, but know the people who operate them. I think people here, they know the Kings and the Normans and the Pendarvises, Hochmuth said. They know them from the sales of strawberries in particular, but (also know) the other products as well. I think that you all already know or have some connection with farm products in the county maybe more so than others. Hochmuth said Florida is defying the national trend when it comes to farming. In Bradford County, for example, the number of farms that have identified themselves as such in 2013 is 479an increase from 349 in 1987. Florida is one of the few states east of the Mississippi where the number of farms has actually been increasing in the last 10 or 15 years, he said. The size of the farms has been decreasing, so we have more smaller farms throughout the state of Florida. The average farm size is currently 119 acres here in Bradford County, down from 159 acres in the late 1990s. Hochmuth said 98.5 percent of the farms in Bradford County fall within the U.S. Department of Agricultures definition of a small farmone that generates $250,000 or less in gross sales annually. That may seem like a large dollar figure, Hochmuth said, but if you decrease that gross sales figure to $50,000$100,000, the percentage of small farms in Bradford County only drops to 93-94 percent. The reality is the majority of farms we have here are very small operations100 acres or less and with much less than Past, present and future are topics at Farm-City luncheon Bob Hochmuth presents a bit of Bradford County history as the featured speaker during the Bradford County Extension Farm-City luncheon. $250,000 in sales, Hochmuth said. Hochmuth talked about some of the changes in farming (taking advantage of agritourism, small farms incorporating other crops such as shiitake mushrooms to take advantage of consumer demand, etc.) and challenges farmer face in the future. Water is going to be the most challenging issue across the whole state, Hochmuth said, adding, Were doing a number of things to conserve water by using fertigation and helping farmers with drip-irrigation technology in particular here. The Farm-City luncheon covered past, present and future. Hochmuth opened his presentation by covering some of Bradford Countys history, such as how Starke derived its name it was the last name of George Coles fianc (Cole bought the land that became Starke)and how the whole region was New River County before Bradford County was created. The rail system was really important for this region in those early days, Hochmuth said. The materials that were shipped out of here were timber, naval store product and cotton. For those who didnt know, Hochmuth explained that naval store product consisted of turpentine and other timber products that were used at naval shipyards. Hochmuth joked about Starkes population explosion to 400 in the 1800s before later talking about the mindboggling population explosion that occurred in the 1940s. See FARMS, 4B

Quick and his son have been collecting the signatures of all the firefighters theyve met, as well as department paraphernalia. During his stay at the Starke department, Quick said he had already shipped six boxes of patches and T-shirts to his home. I dont think well have to buy another T-shirt again, he said. When the cross-country trip began, Quick said he and his son were averaging up to 10 hours of cycling per day. Issues with Quicks heart, though, slowed the duo to riding 25-40 miles per day. Quicks will never wavered. I promised America I was going to finish it, and Im going to finish it, he said. Quick has been accepting donations throughout his ride that will benefit Roy City Fire and Rescue, Special Olympics Utah, Primary Childrens Hospital in Salt Lake City and McKay-Dee Hospital Center in Ogden, Utah.

Its not an easy job, Quick said, noting those times where firefighters have to respond to fatalitiesfatalities that may very well include someone they know personally.

Owner s & Operators Kathy Rensberger & Leisha Boyd Dear Editor: I am writing today about an incident that happened on Thanksgiving. My daughters and I went shopping at the Walmart in town after dinner. When we left, I apparently placed my checkbook (with cash in it) on the hood of my car. As soon as we turned onto 301, we noticed something fly off my hood. When we got to Sears, I realized it was my checkbook. Immediately we went back to see if we could find it. After about 15 minutes of searching through the median, we started driving home. Within two minutes of getting into the car, my son called and said a gentleman dropped it off at the house along with almost half of the cash that was in it. Apparently, he saw the checkbook and cash fly off the car and stopped to pick it up. I wanted to say thank you to whoever you are! I wish I could thank you personally, but I dont know who you are. Im so thankful to live in a community where there are still honest people! Merry Christmas! Mi Yong Fitzpatrick Something to truly be thankful for Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Wings of Dreams Aviation Museum joined the ranks of 178 educational organizations nation wide that received a NASA minigrant for an after-school STEM (science, technology, engineer ing, mathematics) program. Selected from a pool of more than 400 applications, the pro gram closely followed the objec tives of the NASA STEM sum mer camp program, Solar Sys tem Adventures. The program sessions, which were attended by seventhand eighth-graders at Keystone Heights Jr.-Sr. High School, were held at Keystone Heights Airport and taught by Wings of Dreams volunteer Dr. Francisco Reyes, associate scientist at the Univer sity of Florida Department of As tronomy and director of the UF teaching observatories, with the support of the University of Flor ida Department of Astronomy public outreach initiative. This is an important first step in establishing Wings of Dreams as an aerospace educational cen ter in a rural, underserved area of North Central Florida, said Su san King, Wings of Dreams cofounder and managing director, who joined forces with Reyes to write and submit the grant. The after-school sessions in cluded lectures followed by hands-on activities. Sessions covered such topics as the solar system, sun, planets, comets, as teroids and exoplanets; the use of telescopes; exploration of the bodies of the solar system; the important discoveries made by manned and unmanned space craft; and the possibility of find ing life on other planets. The program concluded Nov. 14 with a star party, where stu dents learned firsthand about NASA minigrant funds Wings of Dreams after-school program the moon, the planets and other celestial bodies. The UF astron omy department provided the use of telescopes and additional equipment to enhance the learn ing experience for the students participating in this and future programs. Reyes was instrumen tal in arranging for the donation of 10-inch Meade telescope to Wings of Dreams to be used for these educational programs and star party. With the assistance of Reyes, Peyton Phillips, science de partment chairman at KHHS, and other local educators and volunteers, Wings of Dreams will continue and expand these unique educational programs for students in the surrounding rural counties, according to King. In addition to astronomy and space exploration, we are planning to develop and imple ment after-school programs and summer camps on other topics, including aeronautics, aviation, rocketry and aviation and World War II history, she said. Wings of Dreams, a nonprofit organization, has more than 60 historic space artifacts that will be used to highlight the history of Americas space program and in spire youth to pursue educational programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The organization is seeking fi nancial and in-kind assistance to help to preserve and restore these artifacts and complete the con struction of a facility to display them and provide a space for educational programs. For more information, contact Wings of Dreams Executive Di rector Robert Oehl at 352-2568037 or bob@wingsofdreams. org. The population around World War II expanded for this immediate area to over 80,000 people to support the Camp Blanding efforts, Hochmuth said. Hochmuth talked a little about Doyle Conner, whom he described as one of the most famous people to be born in this area. Conner served as Floridas commissioner of agriculture for 30 years (1961-91), but he also had some accomplishments Hochmuth said those attending the Farm-City luncheon may not have been aware of. He was the national FFA president when he was in the FFA, Hochmuth said. He was elected to the House of Representatives when he was a student at the University of Florida in his 20s. He was elected as the House of Representatives speaker at the age of 28, if you can imagine that. At 28, theres no way I wouldve been ready to do any of that. Hochmuth said one of the most endearing things about Conner is that when reading his biography, he listed his profession as farmer. All of the time he spent serving the public, he still considered himself a farmer, Hochmuth said. FARMS Continued from 2B Bradford County FarmCity activities included exhibits for thirdgraders.

Jones, who finished with 12 points, made another 3-pointer as the Tornadoes (2-2, 1-0 in District 5) scored eight straight points to open the second quarter. Keaaris Ardley took a pass from Alex Mejias as he cut to the basket and scored to put Bradford up 19-5. Keystone (0-4, 0-2) got off to a good start when C.J. Rogers drained a 3-pointer for the first basket of the game, but the Indians got only two more field goals the remainder of the first half. They didnt score in the second quarter until approximately five minutes had elapsed. Joquez Ivey added seven points for Bradford, while Ardley and Oliver Griffin each had six.

RIGHT: Katie Caren, pictured with head coach Thomas Mobley, earned the Player of the Game trophy. Caren, Randa Goodwin and Meghan Fins, Fur & Tails Dwight Elder, his wife, Cleo, and their two sons, Jonathon and David, have been avid fishermen in North Central Florida for a long time, but they have never been able to gather all of their immediate family on the same trip until they went surf fishing a few weeks ago. Not only was it a productive fishing trip, it was relaxing and diversified. If sitting was anyones desire, they had lawn chairs. If they got tired of watching fishing lines, they could walk St. Augustine Beach. If additional supplies were needed, the car was available without disrupting the fishing. As noted, the trip was productive, with multiple catches of pompano, whiting and blues. Dustin Elder was the star performer by landing a 6-foot black tip shark that was photographed and released. Dwight attributed much of the trips success to the guide he contracted to assist. The investment was well worth the expense considering the successful trip, the party size and the information gathered for future use should they repeat the event. Dwight also indicated he would get a beach cart if he pursued the activity because the amount of supplies and equipment would be too much to carry. The cart style he was talking about was not motorized, but pushed, much like a wheelbarrow. One thing that is so appealing about the activityif you are not a hunteris that winter surf fishing is so compatible with the beach crowds and fish runs. This is the very time of the year that reds, whiting and pompano collect around the beaches and inland waterways. Additionally, if you are near jetties, sheepshead are readily available. Another perk is that beach swimmers are rare during the winter. Dwight also indicated there are good online forums that continually discuss the best beach locations for fish. So if you are in the market for a good outdoors, winter activity and hunting is not an option, consider surf fishing. Do not forget the value of a guide the first time out, and take a look at Dustins accompanying photo before you dismiss surf fishing as not exciting. Captain Randy Harris A guides service the first time out on a new outdoors activity is always a good consideration. If by chance you are considering red fishing or any type of inshore fishing out of Steinhatchee on the Gulf Coast, then you might want to consider Captain Randy Harris. Harris is a longtime resident of Keystone and is a master of the activity. He is licensed with the Coast Guard, and he readily posts his catches on Joey Tysons Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle Facebook page, which is a good way to stay up to date on local outdoors activities. Harris knows the area like the back of his hand and uses an airboat to get to the best spots at the right time. He can be reached at 352-745-1507. Outdoors outlook Joey Tyson indicated that the crappie bite is picking up in both Santa Fe and Lowry. Most of the successful fishermen are drifting minnows in the deeper water. Some fishermen are catching crappie trolling in the feeder creeks off of the St. Johns. Lochloosa especially has been giving up good crappie numbers. In the saltwater front on both coasts, the reds, spotted trout and black trout are doing well. Large sheepshead are being caught on the eastern side around jetties, especially in the Mayport area.

Her duties include supervising staff physician assistants, providing standard of care protocols for the clinic and coordination of patient care among the volunteer providers. In a typical year, Dr. Balch sees over 460 patients, many having quarterly appointments. The ACORN Clinic serves patients from 18 counties in North Central Florida principally Alachua, Bradford and Union. It is a key part of the local healthcare safety net and has provided medical, dental, mental health and social service referrals with discounted sliding scale fees since 1974. The clinic and its patients are extremely fortunate to have a physician of Dr. Balchs caliber. Her clinical expertise and intelligence would allow her to work in many other settings that would give her more prominence, but she has chosen to make ACORN Clinics Dr. Balch recognized for contribution to rural health careReceives the Wendell N.

BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Nov. 22, the Union County Sheriffs Office was notified by a 22-year-old woman of inappropriate behavior from an employee of Dr. Marvin W. Johnson who operates a family practice clinic located next to Lake Butler Hospital. The victim stated that on Nov. 4, around 6:30 p.m., she arrived for an appointment at the doctors office to be treated for fibromyalgia and pain management. She reported receiving treatment from Oscar Armengol, 53, a medical assistant who is an 18-year employee of Johnsons office. The victim reported receiving numerous medications in pill and intravenous form, including Lortab, Xanax and Celebrex, and as the medication began to take effect, the suspect took photos of her and began massaging her in the areas he administered the medication. While the victim was disrobed, Armengol then sexually assaulted her for about 30 seconds while the victim asked him to stop. According to Union County Sheriff Jerry Whitehead, the victim told Armengol she couldnt afford the pain medicine she needed for her ailment, so he offered to treat her after hours. Investigators are determining whether Armengol was allowed to administer drugs under any circumstances. Someone who is not licensed, like Armengol, cant administer drugs even during the clinics hours, is what weve been told, said Whitehead. After investigating this incident, UCSO received a search warrant for Armengols Gainesville home. On Nov. 26, Union County investigators, along with Alachua County Sheriffs Office, executed the search warrant at Armengols residence at 4151 NW 43rd Place, Lot 604. As part of the search warrant, officers seized computer equipment, a hard drive, digital and video cameras and equipment, cash and various prescription medications: Oxycodone, Alprazolam, Adderall, Cymbalta and Viagra. Armengol was arrested by the Alachua County Sheriffs Office on probable cause for charges out of Union County. He was charged with sexual battery with special conditions on a victim over 12 years of age, a first-degree felony; practicing medicine without an active license, a third-degree felony; and a ACSO charge of delivering/distributing drugs, a third-degree felony. Armengol is in the Alachua County Jail on the above charges with a $600,000 bond. Dr. Johnsons son, Whit Johnson, who works in the office, told Action News in Jacksonville, He was a great employee. He did surgeries. He did, anything you can think of, he could do. What ever he was doing, it wasnt to his consent. (Dr. Johnson) had no idea he was up to this. Armengol stated to law enforcement officers that he is a doctor in the country of Honduras but not licensed to practice in the United States. He also told them that he had taken the test twice to become a medical doctor here but had failed. You get a total of three chances. The medical assistant apparently treated other patients after hours, as well, usually those who were poor or had no insuranceallegedly without Dr. Johnsons knowledge. Over the years, many residents relied on Armengol, who did everything from administer shots to massaging away joint pain. Many are shocked to hear the allegations. You mean, Oscar? It just doesnt sound like him, patient Gabriel Alexander told WJXT News4Jax. Ive known him for years while coming here. My grandmother, she really knows him because shes been going there for years and its just crazy. Its hard to believe, Lake Butler resident Jeremiah Parrish told First Coast News. I hate it for the community, Whitehead said. I hate it for Dr. Johnson. Johnson, 82, has practiced medicine in Lake Butler for decades. He graduated from the University of Alabama School of Medicine in 1960.Medical assistant charged with drugging, sexually assaulting patientOscar Armengol an 18-year employee of Dr. Johnsons clinic reads a Christmas classic.

Staff members have seen Dr. Balch notice the smallest abnormality on a lab test and follow through to make an early diagnosis of a problem that would have become much more significant had it not been detected early. Regardless of whether she is taking care of an engineer who is out of work or a farm laborer who didnt finish high school, she strives to bring that patient to his or her healthiest condition through lifestyle counseling, education on their disease and medical management. She never settles for less than the best patient care. Dr. Balchs patients are very loyal to her. For example, over the years several patients have transferred to another provider because of insurance or transportation challenges. More often than not, they return to Dr. Balch due to her outstanding care. She also plays a prominent role in educating students and collaborating with colleagues, including volunteer practitioners. This includes training medical assistants and medical students and working with doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students and nurse practitioners. At least three medical students train with Dr. Balch each year. She instills in them an appreciation of the value of primary care medicine as well as the rewards of serving a rural practice. The success of the ACORN Clinic relies on the consistent hand of Dr. Balchs medical leadership. The clinic is located at 23320 North S.R. 235 in Brooker. Call 352-485-1133 to make an appointment.

Most people would also claim to not appreciate people lying to them. However, some people seem more interested in hearing lies than the truth. In Isaiah 30:10, the people told the prophets, Do not prophecy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. The people actually wanted to be lied to! Today, when people reject the teaching of the Bible they are turning aside to fables or lies (2 Timothy 4:3-4). Instead of being concerned about hearing a message that appeals to us, we should desire to hear the truth even if it condemns us. Remember the truth shall make you free (John 8:32). A failure to love the truth will result in a failure to be saved (2 Thessalonians 2:10). Let us be the type of people who Buy the truth, and do not sell it (Proverbs 23:23).

The Union County Sheriffs Office believes the same suspect(s) did the shootings at each location: two locations on Southwest C.R. 239 and one location on Southwest 92nd Way. There are a total of four victims with damage to multiple items of property, including items within their homes and vehicles. Evidence found at each scene points to suspect(s) driving to each location and using a .22-caliber firearm to fire rounds toward the victims houses and vehicles. Damage included a bullet into a television and another one that traveled through a recliner and into an exterior wall. At another location a bullet went through a vehicle window and one went through the front door of the residence. At a third location, two vehicles were damaged with bullet holes in the hood and windshield. No one was hurt during these crimes. UCSO stated that this is a very serious crime and has multiple deputies and investigators assigned to solving it. Florida Statute 790.19 covers shooting into or throwing deadly objects into dwellings whether occupied or not as a second-degree felony. The sheriffs office also stated that suspect(s) involved can also be charged with criminal mischief up to a third-degree felony. UCSO collected evidence at each of the crime scenes and rushed it to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Lab in Jacksonville for processing. Multiple leads and suspect information is currently being processed. Its a very serious thing. It is our top priority right now, said Union County Sheriff Jerry Whitehead. Were trying to identify the culprit or culprits, getting the word out. Anyone with any information on this crime should contact the UCSO, Investigative Division, at 386-496-2501 or sheriff@unionsheriff.us Anyone can remain anonymous and contact First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477) or www.fccrimestoppers.com A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a suspect(s).Shooting and criminal mischief, UCSO seeking suspects Homes, car shot into by .22-caliber firearm; no one hurt Clay Electric members report attempted scamsClay Electric Cooperative said two of its members in the Salt Springs District were recently approached by individuals falsely claiming to represent the co-op. The utility reported in a press release that one member in the Lynne area said she received a call from someone claiming to be from Clay Electric who was attempting to collect a past due bill related to a recent rate increase. A cooperative representative said the utility does not collect past due amounts in this manner. If a member has an overdue bill, he or she will likely receive a call from our automated phone messaging system as a reminder to call the cooperative to arrange payment, said John Bennett, member relations representative for the Salt Springs District. Theyll also receive a courtesy notice in the mail. Bennett added that members should never share confidential, personal information over the phone. In a second incident, a member was approached at home by two men claiming to be contractors for Clay Electric. They told the member they needed to check the windows at her residence. The woman became suspicious and called Clay Electric which told the woman the coop does not have contractors that check windows and that she should call the sheriffs office. The two men left the area. Bennett said Clay field personnel wear uniforms and carry identification, and can be asked for ID if members have any questions about who they represent. Contractors working for the co-op are also properly identified and can provide ID if asked. He also said Clay Electric personnel do not make home visits to check on windows or other items.

They are excited to get a new sign for their clubhouse this year. President Ann Hendricks and daughter Christy Hendricks attended the district meeting in Jacksonville on behalf of the club. In September, Ann and Christy attended the General Federation of Womens Clubs State Fall Conference in Orlando and had a wonderful time meeting with other members from all over the state of Florida. LBWC celebrated 100 years of service last year and   i s a part of GFWC. Founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., GFWC is an international womens organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. It is one of the worlds largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, womens volunteer service organizations. For more than 110 years GFWC has been a unifying force, bringing together local womens clubs from around the country and throughout the world. Although there is considerable diversity in the ages, interests and experiences of GFWC clubwomen, all are united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service. The members of the local club, LBWC, support many charities and also fund a scholarship for local teenagers and women. This $500 scholarship is awarded to a local woman who wishes to attend college. They also sponsor the Hugh OBrian Youth Leadership award each year for a deserving student selected by teaching personnel at Union County High School. The club hosts an annual Valentines luncheon with proceeds going to the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society. Additionally, the club supports Canine Companions, Hacienda Girls Ranch, Ronald McDonald House and Boggy Creek Camp for kids with cancer. They have a Christmas Tree Opportunity Drawing fundraiser in October and November that helps with the expenses and upkeep of their historical clubhouse. The clubhouse was the first Union County Courthouse, built in 1921 and moved to its current location in 1935. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. LBWC encourages local women 18 years of age and over to visit them at their monthly meeting at the clubhouse located at 285 N.E. First Ave. in Lake Butler.

6A Union County Times Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013 Like it has for the past few years, the Lake Butler Rotary Club distributed special dictionaries to all third graders at Lake Butler Elementary School on Nov. 19. It includes Rotary distributes dictionaries to third graders UCI promotes Robinson to captainUnion Correctional Institution celebrated the promotion of Lt. Tommy T. T.T. Robinson to the rank of captain on Sept. 17. Robinson will be leading the institutions C Shift, one of the two night shifts, as officer in charge. In that capacity he will have primary responsibility for everything that occurs at the institution during the evening hours. Ironically, his brother, Captain T.J. Robinson, is officer in charge of D Shift, the other night shift at UCI. Captain T.T. Robinson has been with the Department of Corrections for 15 years and has worked in almost every capacity an officer can work at a major institution. Most recently, he served as administrative lieutenant for three dorms in the institutions Northwest Unit, which houses inmates with special medical and mental health needs. Robinson is a member of the institutions Rapid Response Team. RRT members are the institutions first responders to almost any emergency situation. They continually train with special munitions and techniques they may need in order to deal with emergency incidents and disturbances. This requires a high degree of physical fitness and a cool head in high-stress situations. Robinson always exhibits both. Robinson also acts as the leader of the institutions honor guard. UCI is one of only two institutions that have an honor guard in DOCs Region II and those two honor guards participate in final services for any DOC family who requests their presence. UCIs 18-member, allvolunteer honor guard provides a commemorative flag and presents it to the family in a solemn flag-folding ceremony at the gravesite. The flag comes with a commemorative storage box so that the family can keep it as a memento. The group also posts the colors, provides the playing of Taps on a trumpet and executes a 21-gun salute, if they are requested to. The honor guard attends the viewing, the funeral and the graveside services, usually over a period of two days. They will even act as pall bearers, at the familys request. As volunteers, Robinson and the other members of the honor guard dont get paid extra to sacrifice their evenings, weekends and leave time. They also donate their time to meet additional training requirements. Being a member of the honor guard is one of the most prestigious volunteer services any correctional officer can provide, said Robinson, but it is certainly no easy assignment. We often will get called on a Monday and have to be ready to perform on Wednesday, he said. That means the team has to be assembled and their special uniforms complete with white ascots and gloves have to be cleaned and pressed and ready to go. The members go out of their way to ensure they are ready at a moments notice. Robinson always exhibits outstanding dedication to his God, his family, his institution and his fellow staff members. UCIs Lieutenant T.T. Robinson (second from left) was promoted to the rank of captain and pinned with his new rank insignia on Sept. 17. Participating in the pinning ceremony were, (lr) Colonel Kevin Box, Captain Robinson, Major Daniel Manning and Major Stanley Peterson. Polk promoted at UCIs new work campJason Polk was promoted to the rank of lieutenant at Union Correctional Institution on Nov. 4. Polk has been with the Department of Corrections for 23 years and first began going to the dogs in 1991 when he joined the institutions K-9 Team as a parttime officer. He soon became a full-time K-9 officer and was promoted to sergeant in 2004. He worked his way up to become the supervisor of the institutions highly successful K-9 Team. When he first became a K-9 officer 20 years ago, he was told he needed to be on call 24/7, and was always available for duty. Even after his promotion he will be available for call-outs, but he will not be involved in the daily operation of the K-9 yard. Polk is highly dedicated and used to hard work, since he was responsible for the daily training of the institutions tracking dogs and also had to be available at the drop of a hat to trail a fleeing felon or locate a missing child. In one incident this year, Polk and the team were called by area law enforcement to track a man who had taken an overdose and then run into the woods, intending to commit suicide. Polk and the K-9 Team successfully located him in time to save his life. On Nov. 4, Polk traded his camouflage and snake boots for a white shirt and gold bars as he officially became a lieutenant and was tasked with supervising all of the work squads assigned to the institutions newly opened work camp. Warden Diane Andrews said she was very pleased about the promotion and expected Polks transition to be a smooth one in view of his many years of experience with DOC. Polk said he was honored to be chosen. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best lieutenants in the entire state during my career, said Polk. I dont expect to be able to hold a candle to them, but I certainly appreciate this opportunity to try. I certainly intend to do my best. Col. Kevin Box (left) and Major Stanley Peterson (right) pin the new rank insignia on the collar of Lt. Jason Polk at his promotion ceremony Nov. 4. Lee, Patterson chosen as top UCI staffersUnion Correctional Institution named its top officer and employee for the month of October. Officer of the Month for October is Sgt. Willie Lee and Employee of the Month is teacher Bennie Patterson. Sgt. Lee has worked for the Department of Corrections for 27 years and has served as a sergeant for nearly 20. He is currently the administrative sergeant for one of the institutions mental health treatment units. Sgt. Lee was nominated because of his hard work and dedication on a daily basis. He is described as a team player who always demonstrates a positive attitude. He is very knowledgeable in his duties and works well with both staff members and inmates. Sgt. Lee was especially commended for going above and beyond the call of duty in helping a large number of the institutions medical and mental health professionals relocate their offices from a building that is set to be renovated. According to Operations Management Consultant Tammy Macey, Sgt. Lee went so far as to prepare offices, move furniture and put up shelving when staff members had to be relocated quickly. None of those tasks are in Sgt. Lees job description, but he accomplished them with a smile along with anything else that was needed. I, along with all the R Dorm staff, would like to thank (Sgt. Lee) and acknowledge his kindness and teamwork. We could not have done it without him, said Macey. Patterson works in the educational program at UCI, helping inmates sharpen their knowledge and skills as they prepare to leave prison and rejoin society. He teaches literacy, adult basic education and GED courses. He has worked with the Department of Corrections for only 18 months, but has been teaching for five years. He taught language arts and mathematics in the public school system, prior to signing on with DOC. He was nominated as Employee of the Month by Library Technician Steven Taylor, who said Patterson has impressed him by his hard work to further the educational achievements of UCI inmates. He works hard for his students, wrote Taylor. Taylor pointed out that Patterson has purchased and donated a projector to the institution for use in educational classes. He said that Patterson believes if he can better prepare his students for the outside world, then their chances of becoming productive citizens once they are released will be greatly improved. This lowers the possibility that they will return to prisonwhich is the whole idea of our re-entry program, said Taylor. Col. Kevin Box (left) and Asst. Warden Steve Rossiter congratulate the UCI October Officer and Employee of the Month, Sgt. Willie Lee and teacher Bennie Patterson. Six UCI staff members earned service pins on Oct. 15. They were congratulated by the leadership staff at a supervisors meeting. Shown here are (back row, l-r) Asst. Warden David Maddox, Col. Kevin Box, Sgt. James Hughes (5 years of service to the state of Florida), Sgt. Kevin Howe (30 years), Sgt. Robert Kirkland (15 years), Sgt. Aaron Bass (5 years), Asst. Warden Steve Rossiter, Dr. Phillip Springer (10 years), Warden Diane Andrews, (front row, l-r) Classification Supervisor Mike Davis, Asst. Classification Supervisor Tommy Dicks and Officer Geneva Webb (5 years). Employees of the state of the Florida receive a service pin after each five-year period of service. UCI promoted six new sergeants on Aug. 30. Asst. Warden David Maddox said it was exciting to watch six people prepare themselves to start a new journey in their careers. New sergeants are (l-r) James Meisner (eight years with DOC), Deandra Rob inson (six years), Letosha Joshua (three years), Donald Rosier (five years), Robert Rhodes (six years) and Joel Combs (three years). Five of the six were already UCI staff members prior to their promotion. Joshua joins UCI from Baker Correctional In stitution. All six were pinned with their rank insignia on Aug. 30.

Bob Quick (right) shakes hands with Jerry Waters after receiving Starke Fire Rescue patches as souvenirs. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It is fulfilling a lifelong passion, but more than anything, Bob Quicks coast-to-coast bicycle ride across the United States is a way of inspiring people to embrace active lifestyles. Quick, a Roy, Utah, resident, is in the advanced stages of coronary artery disease, thanks to a hereditary condition. He suffered a massive heart attack in 2004, has 16 stents and had a pacemaker/defibrillator implanted earlier this year. He hopes his journeywhich also includes his son, Conradhelps get people off the couch.

Photo courtesy of Quick and his website www.bobquicksjourney. com. Quick, an avid cyclist who has always wanted to bike his way across the U.S. Then they go, Maybe I can venture a little farther. Maybe they go two blocks. Maybe they go three in a year. Those endorphins start kicking in, and they start feeling better. Quicks journey is also one of thanks. Thats what brought him to Starke Fire Rescue during the week of Thanksgiving and why his journey, once complete, will have consisted of stops to more than 80 fire departments. You see, Quick actually went into cardiac arrest in 2004 and was technically dead for more than three minutes. Paramedics with Roy City Fire and Rescue resuscitated Quick. They never gave up on me, said Quick, who is now an honorary member and chef of the Roy City department. They worked on me hard. They worked on me diligently. Thats the reason Im here. To bring attention to Americas hometown heroes, Quick made fire stations across the U.S. the stopping points throughout his ride, which began Sept. 2 in San Diego and ended this week in St. Augustine. Theyre the warriors, said Quick, who planned to stay overnight at two more fire departments once he left Starke. When people see them out in public, they need to thank them. Quick has stayed at several hotels on his journey, but that was because he needed a place from time to time that had a tub he could lie in and soak his muscles. Outside of that, he has enjoyed experiencing the uniqueness of each fire station he has stopped at and has also had the opportunity to witness some heart-touching Hersey signs one of Bob looks on. moments.

Bennett talked about the importance of beef cattle, while Toms talked BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It is an effort to bring agriculture to the forefront and to make a connection between those who work on farms and those who dont, but Farm-City Week is really just a continuation of what already takes place in Bradford County, according to Bob Hochmuth, the guest speaker at the Nov. 22 Bradford County Extension Farm-City luncheon, which was held at the Bradford County Fairgrounds. The folks here, I think, know their farmers more so than most counties where I work, said Hochmuth, a multicounty vegetable production agent and statewide small farms coordinator based at the Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center in Live Oak. Hochmuth said Bradford County reminds him of Maryland, where he lived previously, because of its presence of roadside produce stands. He said people in Bradford County are not only aware of those stands, but know the people who operate them. I think people here, they know the Kings and the Normans and the Pendarvises, Hochmuth said. They know them from the sales of strawberries in particular, but (also know) the other products as well. I think that you all already know or have some connection with farm products in the county maybe more so than others. Hochmuth said Florida is defying the national trend when it comes to farming. In Bradford County, for example, the number of farms that have identified themselves as such in 2013 is 479an increase from 349 in 1987. Florida is one of the few states east of the Mississippi where the number of farms has actually been increasing in the last 10 or 15 years, he said. The size of the farms has been decreasing, so we have more smaller farms throughout the state of Florida. The average farm size is currently 119 acres here in Bradford County, down from 159 acres in the late 1990s. Hochmuth said 98.5 percent of the farms in Bradford County fall within the U.S. Department of Agricultures definition of a small farmone that generates $250,000 or less in gross sales annually. That may seem like a large dollar figure, Hochmuth said, but if you decrease that gross sales figure to $50,000$100,000, the percentage of small farms in Bradford County only drops to 93-94 percent. The reality is the majority of farms we have here are very small operations100 acres or less and with much less than Past, present and future are topics at Farm-City luncheonBob Hochmuth presents a bit of Bradford County history as the featured speaker during the Bradford County Extension Farm-City luncheon. $250,000 in sales, Hochmuth said. Hochmuth talked about some of the changes in farming (taking advantage of agritourism, small farms incorporating other crops such as shiitake mushrooms to take advantage of consumer demand, etc.) and challenges farmer face in the future. Water is going to be the most challenging issue across the whole state, Hochmuth said, adding, Were doing a number of things to conserve water by using fertigation and helping farmers with drip-irrigation technology in particular here. The Farm-City luncheon covered past, present and future. Hochmuth opened his presentation by covering some of Bradford Countys history, such as how Starke derived its name it was the last name of George Coles fianc (Cole bought the land that became Starke)and how the whole region was New River County before Bradford County was created. The rail system was really important for this region in those early days, Hochmuth said. The materials that were shipped out of here were timber, naval store product and cotton. For those who didnt know, Hochmuth explained that naval store product consisted of turpentine and other timber products that were used at naval shipyards. Hochmuth joked about Starkes population explosion to 400 in the 1800s before later talking about the mindboggling population explosion that occurred in the 1940s. See FARMS, 4B

Quick and his son have been collecting the signatures of all the firefighters theyve met, as well as department paraphernalia. During his stay at the Starke department, Quick said he had already shipped six boxes of patches and T-shirts to his home. I dont think well have to buy another T-shirt again, he said. When the cross-country trip began, Quick said he and his son were averaging up to 10 hours of cycling per day. Issues with Quicks heart, though, slowed the duo to riding 25-40 miles per day. Quicks will never wavered. I promised America I was going to finish it, and Im going to finish it, he said. Quick has been accepting donations throughout his ride that will benefit Roy City Fire and Rescue, Special Olympics Utah, Primary Childrens Hospital in Salt Lake City and McKay-Dee Hospital Center in Ogden, Utah. I decided if Im going to ride across America, I want to do it for a good cause, he said. You can make a donation or read more about Quick and his ride at www.bobquicksjourney. com.

My daughters and I went shopping at the Walmart in town after dinner. When we left, I apparently placed my checkbook (with cash in it) on the hood of my car. As soon as we turned onto 301, we noticed something fly off my hood. When we got to Sears, I realized it was my checkbook. Immediately we went back to see if we could find it. After about 15 minutes of searching through the median, we started driving home. Within two minutes of getting into the car, my son called and said a gentleman dropped it off at the house along with almost half of the cash that was in it. Apparently, he saw the checkbook and cash fly off the car and stopped to pick it up. I wanted to say thank you to whoever you are! I wish I could thank you personally, but I dont know who you are. Im so thankful to live in a community where there are still honest people! Merry Christmas!

This is an important first step in establishing Wings of Dreams as an aerospace educational cen ter in a rural, underserved area of North Central Florida, said Susan King, Wings of Dreams cofounder and managing director, who joined forces with Reyes to write and submit the grant. The after-school sessions in cluded lectures followed by hands-on activities. Sessions covered such topics as the solar system, sun, planets, comets, asteroids and exoplanets; the use of telescopes; exploration of the bodies of the solar system; the important discoveries made by manned and unmanned space craft; and the possibility of find ing life on other planets. The program concluded Nov. 14 with a star party, where stu dents learned firsthand about NASA minigrant funds Wings of Dreams after-school programthe moon, the planets and other celestial bodies. The UF astronomy department provided the use of telescopes and additional equipment to enhance the learn ing experience for the students participating in this and future programs. Reyes was instrumen tal in arranging for the donation of 10-inch Meade telescope to Wings of Dreams to be used for these educational programs and star party. With the assistance of Reyes, Peyton Phillips, science department chairman at KHHS, and other local educators and volunteers, Wings of Dreams will continue and expand these unique educational programs for students in the surrounding rural counties, according to King. In addition to astronomy and space exploration, we are planning to develop and imple ment after-school programs and summer camps on other topics, including aeronautics, aviation, rocketry and aviation and World War II history, she said. Wings of Dreams, a nonprofit organization, has more than 60 historic space artifacts that will be used to highlight the history of Americas space program and inspire youth to pursue educational programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The organization is seeking financial and in-kind assistance to help to preserve and restore these artifacts and complete the construction of a facility to display them and provide a space for educational programs. For more information, contact Wings of Dreams Executive Director Robert Oehl at 352-2568037 or bob@wingsofdreams. org. The population around World War II expanded for this immediate area to over 80,000 people to support the Camp Blanding efforts, Hochmuth said. Hochmuth talked a little about Doyle Conner, whom he described as one of the most famous people to be born in this area. Conner served as Floridas commissioner of agriculture for 30 years (1961-91), but he also had some accomplishments Hochmuth said those attending the Farm-City luncheon may not have been aware of. He was the national FFA president when he was in the FFA, Hochmuth said. He was elected to the House of Representatives when he was a student at the University of Florida in his 20s. He was elected as the House of Representatives speaker at the age of 28, if you can imagine that. At 28, theres no way I wouldve been ready to do any of that. Hochmuth said one of the most endearing things about Conner is that when reading his biography, he listed his profession as farmer. All of the time he spent serving the public, he still considered himself a farmer, Hochmuth said. FARMSContinued from 2B Bradford County FarmCity activities included exhibits for thirdgraders.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer A 3-pointer by Caleb Jones at the end of the first quarter was the start of an 11-0 run for the Bradford High School boys basketball team, which rolled to a 53-16 win over visiting Keystone Heights in a District 5-4A matchup on Dec. 3. Jones, who finished with 12 points, made another 3-pointer as the Tornadoes (2-2, 1-0 in District 5) scored eight straight points to open the second quarter. Keaaris Ardley took a pass from Alex Mejias as he cut to the basket and scored to put Bradford up 19-5. Keystone (0-4, 0-2) got off to a good start when C.J. Rogers drained a 3-pointer for the first basket of the game, but the Indians got only two more field goals the remainder of the first half. They didnt score in the second quarter until approximately five minutes had elapsed. Joquez Ivey added seven points for Bradford, while Ardley and Oliver Griffin each had six.

RIGHT: Katie Caren, pictured with head coach Thomas Mobley, earned the Player of the Game trophy. Caren, Randa Goodwin and Meghan Fins, Fur & Tails Dwight Elder, his wife, Cleo, and their two sons, Jonathon and David, have been avid fishermen in North Central Florida for a long time, but they have never been able to gather all of their immediate family on the same trip until they went surf fishing a few weeks ago. Not only was it a productive fishing trip, it was relaxing and diversified. If sitting was anyones desire, they had lawn chairs.   If they got tired of watching fishing lines, they could walk St. Augustine Beach. If additional supplies were needed, the car was available without disrupting the fishing. As noted, the trip was productive, with multiple catches of pompano, whiting and blues. Dustin Elder was the star performer by landing a 6-foot black tip shark that was photographed and released. Dwight attributed much of the trips success to the guide he contracted to assist. The investment was well worth the expense considering the successful trip, the party size and the information gathered for future use should they repeat the event. Dwight also indicated he would get a beach cart if he pursued the activity because the amount of supplies and equipment would be too much to carry. The cart style he was talking about was not motorized, but pushed, much like a wheelbarrow. One thing that is so appealing about the activityif you are not a hunteris that winter surf fishing is so compatible with the beach crowds and fish runs.   This is the very time of the year that reds, whiting and pompano collect around the beaches and inland waterways.   Additionally, if you are near jetties, sheepshead are readily available. Another perk is that beach swimmers are rare during the winter. Dwight also indicated there are good online forums that continually discuss the best beach locations for fish. So if you are in the market for a good outdoors, winter activity and hunting is not an option, consider surf fishing.   Do not forget the value of a guide the first time out, and take a look at Dustins accompanying photo before you dismiss surf fishing as not exciting.Captain Randy HarrisA guides service the first time out on a new outdoors activity is always a good consideration. If by chance you are considering red fishing or any type of inshore fishing out of Steinhatchee on the Gulf Coast, then you might want to consider Captain Randy Harris. Harris is a longtime resident of Keystone and is a master of the activity. He is licensed with the Coast Guard, and he readily posts his catches on Joey Tysons Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle Facebook page, which is a good way to stay up to date on local outdoors activities. Harris knows the area like the back of his hand and uses an airboat to get to the best spots at the right time. He can be reached at 352-745-1507.Outdoors outlookJoey Tyson indicated that the crappie bite is picking up in both Santa Fe and Lowry. Most of the successful fishermen are drifting minnows in the deeper water.   Some fishermen are catching crappie trolling in the feeder creeks off of the St. Johns. Lochloosa especially has been giving up good crappie numbers. In the saltwater front on both coasts, the reds, spotted trout and black trout are doing well.   Lar ge sheepshead are being caught on the eastern side around jetties, especially in the Mayport area.
