For more information, visit www.ahectobacco.com BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The New River Solid Waste Association received no criticisms in its audit for Fiscal Year 2013, but the county commissioners who make up the board still got their hands smacked for dipping too often into the cookie jar. Bradford, Baker and Union counties each receive scheduled dividends annually from the landfills profits, and Union County also receives an annual host fee. This alone adds up to hundreds of thousands of dollars that the landfill contributes to county budgets. But commissioners have also been known to divvy up unanticipated revenue and most recently split $300,000 withdrawn from an escrow account money that had been set aside to meet long-term maintenance requirements because Commissioner Wayne Smith said Union County was in need. (He and Morris Dobbs have since been replaced on the association board by Karen Cossey and Jimmy Tallman.) While not illegal, CPA Lora Douglas of DDF CPA Group said it wasnt good for business either. While it might seem strange to see this government association as a business, thats what it is. Other governments have enterprises as a part of their operations as well, such as the city of Starkes electric and water utilities, and the point is to stay in business. The landfill cannot do that without properly planning for the future, Douglas said. It should be treated just like a business, which means you need to consider future obligations and not treat it like you would a county budget and spend everything you bring in during the year, she said. A business cant continue to operate if it spends everything it makes every year and lives paycheck to paycheck. In 2013, the landfill board sent $1.7 million back to the member counties. Commissioners were schooled on the difference between their closure and longterm planning funding responsibilities. Once deposited, closure funds cannot be withdrawn. Closure moneybased on the estimated cost of construction and other duties associated with closing the landfillare being adequately funded along the way, and thats good, because the money must be there when the landfill has exhausted its life. The board has been setting aside longterm planning money as well. There are estimates about how much the monitoring and maintenance of the landfill which must go on at least 30 years after closurewill cost, but that money does not necessarily have to be there at closing, County dipping at landfill bad for business Crusaw resentenced for fatal hit and run In 2010, Lake Butler man killed young mother, Jodie Norris, while fleeing UCSO deputy BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Friday, March 14, Julius Crusaw Jr., 29, was resentenced after his motion was granted on Feb. 27, 2013, to vacate, set aside or correct sentence, reducing his longest sentence by two years. He filed the motion on Sept. 11, 2012. At around 9 p.m. on July 2, 2010, Crusaw fled a hit-and-run scene in which he killed 23-year-old Jodie S. Norris of Starke and injured her then 10-month-old daughter, Hydee Norris. Bobby Hill of Lake Butler, then 19, was a passenger in Crusaws pickup, but received only minor injuries. Union County Sheriffs Deputy Charles Townsend tried to stop Crusaw that Friday night after his 1989 Chevrolet pickup truck sped by Townsend while traveling in the opposite direction, forcing Townsend off the road to avoid the crash. Crusaw then ran a stop sign at C.R. 241 and C.R. 18 west of Worthington Springs, heading south on C.R. 241, and hit the drivers side of Norris Jeep SUV while she traveled east on C.R. 18. She was pronounced dead on the scene. The baby recovered well and was brought home shortly after the accident. Townsend had already terminated the pursuit as instructed by his supervisor, and after turning south onto C.R. 241, came upon the accident scene after seeing the trucks brake lights as it approached the intersection and then a cloud of smoke as the two vehicles collided. Crusaw fled the scene south into the woods and could not be located after investigators searched for him. Later, however, Crusaw wanted medical attention and to turn himself in, which he did to a Florida Highway Patrol sergeant at an prearranged meeting at a Gainesville hospital. He was taken into custody at 1 a.m. July 4. Crusaw later said he was afraid to stop because his license was suspended. He also said he was aware that Norris, whom he went to school with, had died, and he demonstrated deep remorse, according to the arrest report. On March 25, 2011, Crusaw was sentenced to 20 years for vehicular The Union County Sheriffs Office is joining many other sheriffs offices around the state in ramping up its social media presence to establish new means of communicating with the public. This week UCSO launched a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/unionsheriff Urgent alerts, news, events, sex offender information, missing persons and general information will be added to our site as they are made publicly available, Sheriff Brad Whitehead said in a release. We hope it will be an investigative aid to get information out faster and we hope that our current partnership with the public will help us to get more information back to us. The sheriffs office plans to use social media as a great crime-fighting tool as they post information about current trends in a crime, when a sexual offender or predator moves to a certain neighborhood, help to find missing persons throughout the county or even as way to publish Union Countys Most Wanted list. Facebook users can like the page to automatically receive updates from the page on their own Facebook news feed. As well as using social media, the sheriffs office has updated lots of information on its current website to include new staff members, a new site for victims of crimes, updated civil information and links to many other Union County websites where a wealth of information can be found. You can access their website at www.unionsheriff.us UCSO launches Facebook page A memorial to Jodie Norris stands at scene of fatal accident. See NRSWA, 2A See CRUSAW, 2A Shortly before the school year kicked off, Union County High School Principal Mike Ripplinger asked JROTC Army Instructor CSM Kenneth North if he would be willing to start a special unit in JROTC. There are eight special needs students at UCHS that Ripplinger thought would enjoy and benefit from the JROTC curriculum. CSM North has the eight students, now called cadets of the Special Abilities Unit (SAU), one period each day. The goal of JROTC is to motivate young people to become better citizens. He works closely with their other teachers, Tammy Harrison and Cathy Griffis, to use his lesson plans to reinforce the things they are learning from them the rest of the day. Throughout the year, the cadets of the SAU have learned many things. They know how to respect the flag by folding it for proper storage, how to salute it when in uniform and to say the Pledge of Allegiance. They faithfully wear their uniforms and wear them with pride. They have participated in promotion boards, Cadet of the Month Competition, and each Friday participate in P.E. with other JROTC classes. They embrace the notion that the key to success in JROTC is teamwork and care for each other in their unit. Earlier this month, Private First Class Michael Rizer and Private A.J. Baker earned another rank by answering varying questions ranging from the Seven Army Values to the three uniforms used in JROTC. They were promoted by Senior Army Instructor LTC M. Kevin Steverson, and immediately following the ceremony, Rizer received a surprise donation of a new wheelchair. The regional chapter of The Military Order of the Purple Heart heard about the SAU and graciously donated the wheelchair. This non-profit organization has been a big supporter of UCHS JROTC and said they are committed to supporting its newest unit, the SAU. The next big event for the SAU is to present the flag for the National Anthem prior to the beginning of the home JV baseball game on March 27. A new chapter begins at UCHS JROTC Cadets of the Special Abilities Unit: (L-r) Georgie Spires, Sammy Bustrycki, A.J. Baker, Travis Durant, Michael Rizer, James Suttles, Noah Knight, CSM Kenneth North and Deanna Truett. JROTC Drill Team wins at area championship The Union County High School JROTC Drill Team competed in the Area One Army JROTC Drill Team Championship on March 1. The team won eight 1st place trophies and one 3rd place trophy. They also won the overall Area One Championship, which consists of 11 different schools. Winning participants were: Male/Mix Color Guard, 1st Place, Commanded by Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Paul Whitlow; Male/Mix Unarmed Platoon, 1st Place, Commanded by Cadet Major Kyrsten Johnson; Male/Mix Unarmed Squad, 1st Place, Commanded by Cadet Captain Chase Williams; Female Unarmed Squad, 1st Place, Commanded by Cadet Captain Hannah Hicks; Male/Mix Armed Squad, 1st Place, Commanded by Cadet Command Sergeant Major Joseph Chiominto (pictured at left); Female Armed Squad, 1st Place, Commanded by Cadet Major Kamil Mazal; Male Dual Exhibition, 1st Place, Cadet 2nd Lieutenant Nathan Lesch and 2nd Lieutenant Kyle Clemons; Male Individual Exhibition, 1st Place, Cadet Sergeant Dylan Phillips; and Male Individual Exhibition, 3rd Place, Cadet 2nd Lieutenant Kyle Clemons.

But theres a problem with not doing enough to save that money now, Douglas said. The landfill will no longer be making money once it closes. Any unfunded maintenance costs will then become the counties obligation. The associations bookkeeping has been getting better and better, but Douglas addressed the boards fiscal accountability, saying that as a taxpayer in Bradford County, she doesnt want to see these long-term costs become a county responsibility especially since New River could be saving that money now. Baker Countys Mark Hartley said the proposed landfill gas-toenergy project would help recoup the money the counties have spent, and Executive Director Darrell ONeal said the practice of carrying out their own construction projects should continue to save money. But Bradford Countys Eddie Lewis said the board has to remember the cost of doing business will continue to go up, and Cossey said they dont have any money from an energy project coming in yet. And speaking of revenue, Douglas said 76 percent of the landfills revenue comes from its contract with Alachua County, which right now only runs through 2018. She said the concentration of revenue from a single source was a huge risk, and she questioned whether the landfill would be able to pursue financing under these circumstances if it came up short on funding for a future project. I dont think a lender is going to lend you money if you cant show an ability to repay, she said. Another area where the landfills business practices are hurting the bottom line is the poor interest its getting for the money on it has managed to save. In the absence of an investment policy, NRSWAs money has been split between state qualified banking institutions to comply with state law. The returns have been poor, and in some cases the investments have lost money, so the move to better protect the public funds hasnt worked well. Douglas recommended the board hire an expert to manage investments, but the adoption of an investment policy has been delayed. ONeal provided a timeline of his work with board attorney Russell Wade toward selecting an investment policy for adoption, but Wade was on vacation and unavailable to answer the boards questions. Discussion about getting outside counsel to handle the matter led to talk of Wades contract with the board, and it was revealed the attorneyhired last Octoberhad yet to even get his own contract in place. Im not real happy with him right now. Theres other attorneys out there is my point, Hartley said. Commissioners are expecting to be able to take some kind of action on the investments at their next meeting. NRSWA Continued from 1A homicide, followed by five years of probation. He was also sentenced to five years for leaving the scene of an accident involving death and five years for leaving the scene of an accident involving injury. He received 263 days of credit for each of those charges. This past Friday, Crusaws new sentences were 18 years for leaving the scene of an accident involving death, and the same amount for felony fleeing and attempting to allude a high-speed chase resulting in death or injury. Additionally, he was sentenced to over 14-and-a-half years for vehicular homicide and the same amount for careless operation of a motor vehicle with a suspended license, resulting in death or injury. He received 1,257 days of credit for each of those charges. The resentencing was due to errors in the first sentencing, according to Union County Deputy Clerk of Court Stephanie Anderson. The motion that Crusaw filed prompted the resentencing. During the original sentencing there was reportedly some disturbance afterward. This time around, UCSO deputies were on hand to make sure everything went smoothly as the family of Norris and others left the Union County Courthouse. As a precautionary measure, sheriffs deputies secured the courthouse for Fridays hearing in the Crusaw case, Capt. Doug York replied in an email. Sheriff (Brad) Whitehead stated that cases like these remain emotional for families and our job is to protect the integrity and safety of all involved. BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At the end of this month looms the deadline to sign up for health insurance this year as required by the Affordable Care Act, most popularly known as Obamacare. Most people are required to obtain health insurance this year or face a penalty of $95 or 1 percent of their income, whichever is greater. Consumers are allowed to be uninsured for a 90-day period without facing this penalty. The penalty will then be divided by one-twelfth for every month they are not insured. If consumers apply before March 31, they could potentially have coverage by May 1. The open enrollment period ends March 31. Some health care advocates are pushing for an extension, but the Obama administration has not budged from the deadline. Open enrollment will not open again until November. If a consumer has a life-changing event, they could qualify for a special enrollment period. Apply for a plan at www.healthcare.gov As an alternative, residents can also sign up through a health care sharing ministry. After a slow start, Floridians are enrolling in Obamacare insurance plans in droves, reaching 442,087 as of March 1, federal officials disclosed last week. Florida had the second largest number, following Californias 868,936. More than five million people have signed up nationwide, the Obama administration announced Monday. Six million or more would meet a projection made by the Congressional Budget Office. The number has nearly tripled since the end of last year but still amounts to less than half of the 990,455 state residents considered eligible for the new marketplace created by ACA. The large numbers also reflect the fact that Florida is a highneed state. More than 20 percent of Floridians were uninsured at the start of the enrollment period, one of the highest rates in the nation; 83 percent of Floridians will qualify for some type of tax credit or cost-sharing reduction. Computer glitches, security blockages and error messages at the HealthCare.gov website marred the opening of the enrollment period in October, casting doubt on the new laws attempts to cover the uninsured. By Dec. 28, only about 158,000 Floridians had signed up for plans. Federal officials pleaded for patience, noting that many people were bound to compare insurance plans and prices in the first weeks before signing up for one. HealthCare.gov now has a feature on the home page where consumers may see plans before they apply. With minimal information (county and state of residence, number of uninsured in the household, household size, ages and income) a consumer is able to see if they qualify for any of the tax credits and costsharing reductions. Since Medicaid did not expand in Florida, anyone whose income level is below the 133 percent FPL (federal poverty level) would be exempt from paying the penalty. There are 14 categories of exemptions, including one covering low-income people who have been denied Medicaid coverage in the 25 states that have declined to expand that program under the health care law. That population alone may number about five million, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. There are 50 available for Bradford County residents and 26 plans available for Union County residents. Plan levels are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The majority of residents in the two counties are qualifying for tax credits and cost-sharing reductions. Certified application counselors are available at both county health departments for New River Community Health Care to help residents shopping the Health Insurance Marketplace established by the ACA. Staci Griffis is working out of the Bradford County Health Department and Debbie Allen out of the Union County Health Department. The counselors can help residents apply and even file for available exemptions. Griffis says she can meet with individuals face-to-face and assist them in their use of the marketplace, and help them file for one of the many exemptions available. Her services are free, and in addition, consumers without access to a computer will have one made available to them. To schedule an appointment, call 904-967-7732, ext. 1603, in Bradford County and 386-4963211 in Union County. If you have any questions, you may also call 904-796-7014. Or to go ahead and apply for a health care plan yourself, simply visit www.healthcare.gov Obamacare sign-up deadline March 31 A penalty may be assessed, unless you qualify for an exemption CRUSAW Continued from 1A Crusaw questions and guide you through the Health Insurance Marketplace and HealthCare.gov at the Bradford County and Union County health departments, respectively.

When you have a need that you can fulfill in the Lake Butler area, your patronage will be appreciated...The Union County T imes encourages all to shop with our advertisers...For a stronger business community. UCI Dr. Julian Aviles, Union Correctional Institutions medical director, retired on Feb. 20 after 33 years of service to the institution. Dr. Aviles started his career at UCI as a Department of Corrections staff member. When medical services were privatized last year, he transferred to the staff of Corizon, the private company that contracts to provide the institutions medical care. He continued to act as medical director for the institution until his retirement. The staff at UCI cooperated to provide a retirement breakfast for Aviles on Feb. 20, as they prepared to say farewell. There were several tear-filled eyes in the crowd and Health Services Administrator Tammy Macey was no exception. She got a little choked up as she presented Dr. Aviles with a plaque to commemorate his service. Youve been wonderful to all of us, she said. Your dedication and compassion have been inspiring to everyone. Were going to miss you so much. Warden Diane Andrews echoed the sentiment and said, Youll always have a special place in our hearts. Dr. Aviles said, I am grateful for all the help you have given me over the years. We are like family here. You are like my family. Aviles, who actually retired once before and then came out of retirement to again serve as the medical director, joked with the crowd when he held up his retirement plaque and said, Maybe I will get another one of these next year. Warden Andrews said, Youll always be welcome back here. Health Services Administrator Tammy Macey hugs the retiring Dr. Julian Aviles after presenting him with a plaque to commemorate his 33 years of service to UCI. Also on hand for the presentation were Warden Diane Andrews (at left) and Nursing Supervisor Ruth DeWoody (at right). Most of Dr. Aviles time at UCI was spent as medical director for the facility. UCI says goodbye to Dr. Aviles Lt. Terry Bacon said farewell to his friends and colleagues on Jan. 31 when he retired after a 35year career at Union Correctional Institution. A luncheon celebration was held for him in the training building with current and former co-workers attending. There was laughter and a few tears as Bacons long history with the Department of Corrections was recognized and goodbyes were said. Bacon was first hired at UCI as a correctional officer in 1979. He moved up through the ranks and achieved the rank of shift lieutenant in 1993. He became the housing lieutenant in 2004, a post which is responsible for ensuring all inmates at the institution are housed correctly. The institution tries to assign cellmates so that a stronger, more aggressive inmate is not housed in the same cell as a weaker, more timid inmate. It is the housing lieutenants task to ensure this doesnt happen. In 2005, Bacon became the administrative lieutenant. As such, he was responsible for helping the colonel assign posts to all the institutions correctional staff, gathering a wide variety of necessary information and completing a tremendous number of reports for the DOC regional and central offices. The administrative lieutenant is also responsible for assisting the chief of security in completing all sorts of administrative tasks and paperwork. Bacon still held this important post upon his retirement. He was presented with a combination clock and plaque that commemorated his service, a display case that included photos and memorabilia from his years at UCI and an engraved Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun and officers baton which were purchased by his co-workers and presented in a display case. Bacon got a little choked up over the presentations and had a hard time talking at the ceremony, but in an e-mail he said, I want to thank everyone here who has worked with me, worked for me or supported me and the administration for putting up with me. I know I can be bullheaded and sometimes I may have expressed my opinion a little louder than I should have, but I always fought for what I thought was right for my staff. Bacon also reminisced a little about the changes he has seen at UCI through the years. He said when he started, an IBM Selectric II typewriter was hightech and the only camera on the compound was a Polaroid in the colonels office they used to take photos of promotions and other special events. Now, there are desktop computers in every office and video cameras all over the compound that record the movements of both inmates and staff. Weve come a long way, baby, said Bacon. I have seen many good staff come through UCI in these 35 years and there are still a great bunch of staff here. From the bottom of my heart, I truly love this institution and the staff. I never wanted to work anywhere else. Bacon said everyone needs people to look up to as they make their way through the ranks. I had good mentors coming up heroes really people I have talked to more times than I can tell about the problems I had and the joys I experienced. He said his final farewells through misty eyes and said, Today is really a bittersweet day. Warden Diane Andrews led the staff in saying a fond farewell to Bacon. Andrews and Bacon attended high school together and have known each other for a long time. To Bacon, she said, I love you dearly as a friend and, as a warden, I owe you a wealth of gratitude for the hard work you have done for this institution. Weve been through good times and bad This is a wonderful day, but a sad day as well. The best part of any job is the people you meet who care about you. Remember that we care very much. Congratulations. Regional Director Eric Lane also wished Bacon well on his retirement. He said his son played ball with Lt. Bacons son, so he actually met him in that capacity before working with him. On the institutional level, I have heard nothing but great things about him (Bacon), said Lane. Lt. Michael Harris will find some very big shoes to fill as he replaces Bacon as administrative lieutenant. Harris was first hired as a correctional officer in 1993 and became the internal security sergeant in 2008. As such, he was responsible for arranging the transport of inmates from UCI to other institutions and to court and medical appointments. In an institution the size of UCI, this can be a complicated task. In 2011, Harris was promoted to the rank of lieutenant and served on the shifts until 2012 when he was tapped to train as the replacement for the administrative lieutenant.

It starts with all the riders (that want to participate) circling the arena once on horseback to an upbeat western song. The two riders with the Clubs Flag and the American Flag (usually the King and Queen of the club) remain in the arena after. The Clubs Flag moves to the center of the ring while the music changes to the National Anthem performed by LeAnn Rimes. After the National Anthem has finished, a prayer is said to ask for God to watch over all the horses and riders and to pray for healing and safety for those that have been injured or are going through hard times. It really is a site to behold, especially in todays times. Once the opening ceremonies are completed, the real fun begins and the barrel racing horses are ready to run! Recently, however, there have been numerous occasions where people have been discriminated against by one person in the club, casting a dark cloud over everything the club does. A board member at the riding club has taken it upon himself to hand judgment down on individuals that dont suit his beliefs or his variation of who should be allowed to attend the clubs events. I, being a homosexual man in a long term relationship, found myself and my partner to be the targets of such an instance on March 1st, 2014. My name is Keith Warren, and many people in the community know me. I was raised in Bradford County and attended Bradford County schools. I have also been attending events at the Bradford Riding Club for over 25 years now. I always try to help people when they need it and try to keep a smile on my face with something good to say to everyone I come across. For me, this was a completely appalling and demeaning event. My partners name is Michael Young. He is originally from Iowa and has taken an interest in horses and learning as much as he can about them and the sport of barrel racing. He is an outstanding man that is always there for our friends and his family. He gives everyone a fair chance and even if they mess up, he still offers another shot at a friendship. All in all, we arent hateful or spiteful people. We just wanted to take part in a club that has meant a lot to me in my life and try to make a difference in the lives of those around us. The night started off well. My partner and I had been voted in at the January members meeting and had volunteered to work the kitchen as part of our membership. So, we were working the kitchen and one of the board members (the Arena Director) had approached the counter and requested a beverage. That was the job we were asked to do, so we greeted him and proceeded to have his beverage made. In the meantime, he proceeded to ask us if we were gay, which would have been fine, but he used some very derogatory terms and then told us that we were not Disappointed with Bradford Riding Club in the midst of discrimination to touch anything that was to be given to him as he didnt want a gay person touching his food or beverages. I was speechless. All I could do was remain silent and smile. This is 2014 and although I know people are all raised differently and have their own beliefs, I thought that respecting another person was considered the right thing a long time ago! After he received his beverage, I presented the issue with the President of the club who did all she could to correct the situation. She initially came back to me and informed me that without witnesses, the board could not do anything. I understood this and had started to tuck the issue away in my mind. Shortly afterward, however, the board members that were present that night had approached him and he admitted to what was said. As the board began to discuss the issue with him, he offered to leave and give up his key. This offer was, to my shock and dismay, refused by the board. The President of the club came back to the kitchen to inform my partner and me of what the final verdict in the situation had been, and both of us were livid. Here we were, standing in the kitchen selling food and beverages for the Bradford County Riding Club in order to keep our membership with the club in good standing, and we are being discriminated against by one of the clubs own board members! Not only were we being discriminated against, but the rest of the board had decided that no punishment was necessary in a situation like this! Since that night, my partner and I have not been contacted by the board members that were at the Riding Club that night and we have not been issued an apology from the board member that had so much to say about our personal life. Our belief on this matter is that the club has no interest in the well-being and overall safety and security of its members. If there was any concern within the board, it was brushed under the rug in the hopes of the issue going away. Unfortunately for them, we are not willing to go away. We want this issue placed in the public eye. If you have ever been affected by discrimination, you know how serious this is and how damaging an event like this can be. We arent asking for this man to be placed in jail or the club to be shut down. We just want the right thing to be done and nobody else to ever feel as if they are not welcome. Our country has come too far for society to slip back into the ways of segregation (for any race, religion, sexuality, or gender). My partner and I just want it known that we were not treated fairly as a fellow human being should be. The Bradford Riding Clubs motto is Just for the Fun of It and I am still asking myself, What is the fun in discrimination? We were very respectful to all members at the club and worked our shifts. We just dont know what more we could have done. Michael and I would like to say a special Thank You, to all the people that have supported us and kept our spirits high during this time. It is in your darkest hours that you find out who is standing in your corner. From our hearts to yours, thank you for all the kind words and outpouring of support. We really do appreciate it! Submitted by: Keith Warren Keystone Heights Dear Editor: Now I know how stories take on a life of their own. You start out with a short article about corruption in a small town and a comment that blows up into a cause. That comment, from an elected official, said Hampton will cease to exist if they do not behave. Of course Hampton will continue to exist and the state or county taking their city charter would be rare but now the stage is set. The state and then national media have something to run with. Imagine a town so criminal and bad that big brother has to step in and end it all. Bad news sells and this is bad news with a whole town indicted for sleaziness. Next month it will another person or place that excites us and makes us go how could it be so bad, we would never allow that? Having worked in this small town for almost the last thirty years I can tell you most of this story is just that, a story. This is really about a small town steeped in poverty just hangin on like most little towns in America the last few years. Early on Hampton boomed awhile with banks and hotels, a train stopping and strong rural economy. Then one day a major road bypassed it and you have what happened to thousands of little towns like it. Left behind when the cars went elsewhere. Hampton also drew attention because it is between two of the most famous speed traps in America. I put quotes around it because speed traps are places that used to lock you up if you didnt have the cash. Neither is a speed trap. The highway going through them is basically an interstate highway and the locals are trying to slow them down. There are enough signs to warn you and having driven through them most of my adult life I can say all you do is slow down for the speed limit. Hampton tried doing the ticket thing on 301 and that angered some people. The intersection they covered was dangerous. A new stoplight was put in and large trucks routinely ran it because they could not slow down from 65+ in time to stop. I go through that intersection 6-10 times a week and NEVER pull out on the green until I see them stopping. What I believed happened in Hampton is someone with power received a ticket and not enough How Hampton became the next big (bad) thing respect from the local marshal of Hampton and the hammer came down. All of a sudden many Hamptonites were complaining about the corruption and the guys in the white hats swooped in to save them. Yes, and I have a bridge to sell you in the Santa Fe Swamp. The big thing is where did the money go? My comment is what money. Hampton had revenue from those tickets. Most of that went to the state or county. The rest paid those extra officers and gas. The other is the money from the water system. Not much there. The fingers point to a city manager and son. Everyone knows that 95% or more of that went for gas, and a deal it was as Hampton had much cheaper gas than Alachua County. I know these people in Hampton. I have taught many of them and now their children. No elected official is getting rich or even comfortable stealing from the bulging coffers of The City of Hampton. Most of those city people from the manager to the council people did those jobs because most people did not want to mess with it. They always say follow the money trail. You first have to have money to find a trail. I think this trail leads a different way. Someone was treated unfairly and Hampton became the target. Yes, records were poorly kept and Hampton probably should not have followed the leads of Waldo in police work but this great sport of holding Hampton up as some sort of southern cess pool of crime is just the media running with a comment after finding an easy target. The people I know in Hampton are good folks from the ex manager marshal and council people to all the children in that school. They say a school reflects the community it represents. If that is the case you can feel better because Hampton has earned more A grades since the state started that abomination than the rest of the county schools combined. You can look it up. And that is unusual because Hampton Elem. has been a Title One School as long as I can remember. That means the population of the school has a majority living in poverty and eligible for free or reduced lunch. Those schools rarely attain As and you can look that up, too. I saw where the Orlando Sentinel picked up the story and the comments from it explain how big city people feel about the backwaters like Hampton and Archer. To quote: They practice cash register justice Hampton is just a map smudge, two bit redneck towns that are an embarrassment to Florida, and it goes on. Of course bad news sells and those that read it form opinions. If they think that Mickey Mouse parking lot in Orange County is great with its traffic and crime is wonderful they can have it. I imagine they waste or steal more money in a few hours down in Orlando than Hampton could pilfer in its entire history. When such a small place becomes a target for investigation I have to wonder whose ox was gored. It sounds like someone was angered and dropped the hammer with their power. It made good sport for the Gainseville Sun. Dont be fooled by all the pomp and circumstance around Hampton. It is still a nice little town with a great school and quite a bit of poverty. Nobody is getting rich in Hampton from that money pit called the City of Hampton. Steve Acree Brooker Thanks to departments Dear Editor: When Florida adopted Daylight Saving Time, it was not without a fight! Yes, there was a time when we did not change our clocks twice a year. The contention was that DST would save energy. For me, no one has been able to satisfactorily explain how Springing forward and Falling back twice a year could ever conserve energy since we did not save any daylight time its just rearranged. But then Rearranged time doesnt sound nearly as effective as Daylight Saving Time. On March 4, 2014, SB 74: Daylight Saving Time was introduced by Senator Darren Soto and HB 701: Daylight Saving Time had a first reading by Representative Mark Danish requiring that the State of Florida and its political subdivisions observe Daylight Saving Time year round. In March 2008, State Senator Bill Posey introduced a bill to abolish DST and keep Florida on year-round standard time. There is opposition on both sides of the issue! My solution: At a specified date in the future either Spring forward or Fall back one-half hour (30 minutes) and keep it that way year round. Hopefully this would be a compromise all could live with! I have contacted my representative, my state senator and the governor with my suggestion because I would like to see an amiable end to the nonsense of changing clocks twice a year. Martha Capallia Lake Butler Changing clocks twice a year is nonsense

We have a lot of good memories. You always had a helping hand for us. You are in good hands now. Love your mom, Lois Hodges Hau Melrose.

For more information, visit www.ahectobacco.com BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The New River Solid Waste Association received no criticisms in its audit for Fiscal Year 2013, but the county commissioners who make up the board still got their hands smacked for dipping too often into the cookie jar. Bradford, Baker and Union counties each receive scheduled dividends annually from the landfills profits, and Union County also receives an annual host fee. This alone adds up to hundreds of thousands of dollars that the landfill contributes to county budgets. But commissioners have also been known to divvy up unanticipated revenue and most recently split $300,000 withdrawn from an escrow account money that had been set aside to meet long-term maintenance requirements because Commissioner Wayne Smith said Union County was in need. (He and Morris Dobbs have since been replaced on the association board by Karen Cossey and Jimmy Tallman.) While not illegal, CPA Lora Douglas of DDF CPA Group said it wasnt good for business either. While it might seem strange to see this government association as a business, thats what it is. Other governments have enterprises as a part of their operations as well, such as the city of Starkes electric and water utilities, and the point is to stay in business. The landfill cannot do that without properly planning for the future, Douglas said. It should be treated just like a business, which means you need to consider future obligations and not treat it like you would a county budget and spend everything you bring in during the year, she said. A business cant continue to operate if it spends everything it makes every year and lives paycheck to paycheck. In 2013, the landfill board sent $1.7 million back to the member counties. Commissioners were schooled on the difference between their closure and longterm planning funding responsibilities. Once deposited, closure funds cannot be withdrawn. Closure moneybased on the estimated cost of construction and other duties associated with closing the landfillare being adequately funded along the way, and thats good, because the money must be there when the landfill has exhausted its life. The board has been setting aside longterm planning money as well. There are estimates about how much the monitoring and maintenance of the landfill which must go on at least 30 years after closurewill cost, but that money does not necessarily have to be there at closing, County dipping at landfill bad for business Crusaw resentenced for fatal hit and runIn 2010, Lake Butler man killed young mother, Jodie Norris, while fleeing UCSO deputyBY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor On Friday, March 14, Julius Crusaw Jr., 29, was resentenced after his motion was granted on Feb. 27, 2013, to vacate, set aside or correct sentence, reducing his longest sentence by two years. He filed the motion on Sept. 11, 2012. At around 9 p.m. on July 2, 2010, Crusaw fled a hit-and-run scene in which he killed 23-year-old Jodie S. Norris of Starke and injured her then 10-month-old daughter, Hydee Norris. Bobby Hill of Lake Butler, then 19, was a passenger in Crusaws pickup, but received only minor injuries. Union County Sheriffs Deputy Charles Townsend tried to stop Crusaw that Friday night after his 1989 Chevrolet pickup truck sped by Townsend while traveling in the opposite direction, forcing Townsend off the road to avoid the crash. Crusaw then ran a stop sign at C.R. 241 and C.R. 18 west of Worthington Springs, heading south on C.R. 241, and hit the drivers side of Norris Jeep SUV while she traveled east on C.R. 18. She was pronounced dead on the scene. The baby recovered well and was brought home shortly after the accident. Townsend had already terminated the pursuit as instructed by his supervisor, and after turning south onto C.R. 241, came upon the accident scene after seeing the trucks brake lights as it approached the intersection and then a cloud of smoke as the two vehicles collided. Crusaw fled the scene south into the woods and could not be located after investigators searched for him. Later, however, Crusaw wanted medical attention and to turn himself in, which he did to a Florida Highway Patrol sergeant at an prearranged meeting at a Gainesville hospital. He was taken into custody at 1 a.m. July 4. Crusaw later said he was afraid to stop because his license was suspended. He also said he was aware that Norris, whom he went to school with, had died, and he demonstrated deep remorse, according to the arrest report. On March 25, 2011, Crusaw was sentenced to 20 years for vehicular The Union County Sheriffs Office is joining many other sheriffs offices around the state in ramping up its social media presence to establish new means of communicating with the public. This week UCSO launched a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/unionsheriff Urgent alerts, news, events, sex offender information, missing persons and general information will be added to our site as they are made publicly available, Sheriff Brad Whitehead said in a release. We hope it will be an investigative aid to get information out faster and we hope that our current partnership with the public will help us to get more information back to us. The sheriffs office plans to use social media as a great crime-fighting tool as they post information about current trends in a crime, when a sexual offender or predator moves to a certain neighborhood, help to find missing persons throughout the county or even as way to publish Union Countys Most Wanted list. Facebook users can like the page to automatically receive updates from the page on their own Facebook news feed. As well as using social media, the sheriffs office has updated lots of information on its current website to include new staff members, a new site for victims of crimes, updated civil information and links to many other Union County websites where a wealth of information can be found. You can access their website at www.unionsheriff.us .UCSO launches Facebook pageA memorial to Jodie Norris stands at scene of fatal accident. See NRSWA, 2A See CRUSAW, 2A Shortly before the school year kicked off, Union County High School Principal Mike Ripplinger asked JROTC Army Instructor CSM Kenneth North if he would be willing to start a special unit in JROTC. There are eight special needs students at UCHS that Ripplinger thought would enjoy and benefit from the JROTC curriculum. CSM North has the eight students, now called cadets of the Special Abilities Unit (SAU), one period each day. The goal of JROTC is to motivate young people to become better citizens. He works closely with their other teachers, Tammy Harrison and Cathy Griffis, to use his lesson plans to reinforce the things they are learning from them the rest of the day. Throughout the year, the cadets of the SAU have learned many things. They know how to respect the flag by folding it for proper storage, how to salute it when in uniform and to say the Pledge of Allegiance. They faithfully wear their uniforms and wear them with pride. They have participated in promotion boards, Cadet of the Month Competition, and each Friday participate in P.E. with other JROTC classes. They embrace the notion that the key to success in JROTC is teamwork and care for each other in their unit. Earlier this month, Private First Class Michael Rizer and Private A.J. Baker earned another rank by answering varying questions ranging from the Seven Army Values to the three uniforms used in JROTC. They were promoted by Senior Army Instructor LTC M. Kevin Steverson, and immediately following the ceremony, Rizer received a surprise donation of a new wheelchair. The regional chapter of The Military Order of the Purple Heart heard about the SAU and graciously donated the wheelchair. This non-profit organization has been a big supporter of UCHS JROTC and said they are committed to supporting its newest unit, the SAU. The next big event for the SAU is to present the flag for the National Anthem prior to the beginning of the home JV baseball game on March 27.A new chapter begins at UCHS JROTC Cadets of the Special Abilities Unit: (L-r) Georgie Spires, Sammy Bustrycki, A.J. Baker, Travis Durant, Michael Rizer, James Suttles, Noah Knight, CSM Kenneth North and Deanna Truett. JROTC Drill Team wins at area championshipThe Union County High School JROTC Drill Team competed in the Area One Army JROTC Drill Team Championship on March 1.   The team won eight 1st place trophies and one 3rd place trophy. They also won the overall Area One Championship, which consists of 11 different schools.

The FWC course satisfies huntersafety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces. etc. hence the attitude that it would be OK to borrow some from time to time and pay it back later. But theres a problem with not doing enough to save that money now, Douglas said. The landfill will no longer be making money once it closes. Any unfunded maintenance costs will then become the counties obligation. The associations bookkeeping has been getting better and better, but Douglas addressed the boards fiscal accountability, saying that as a taxpayer in Bradford County, she doesnt want to see these long-term costs become a county responsibility especially since New River could be saving that money now. Baker Countys Mark Hartley said the proposed landfill gas-toenergy project would help recoup the money the counties have spent, and Executive Director Darrell ONeal said the practice of carrying out their own construction projects should continue to save money. But Bradford Countys Eddie Lewis said the board has to remember the cost of doing business will continue to go up, and Cossey said they dont have any money from an energy project coming in yet. And speaking of revenue, Douglas said 76 percent of the landfills revenue comes from its contract with Alachua County, which right now only runs through 2018. She said the concentration of revenue from a single source was a huge risk, and she questioned whether the landfill would be able to pursue financing under these circumstances if it came up short on funding for a future project. I dont think a lender is going to lend you money if you cant show an ability to repay, she said. Another area where the landfills business practices are hurting the bottom line is the poor interest its getting for the money on it has managed to save. In the absence of an investment policy, NRSWAs money has been split between state qualified banking institutions to comply with state law. The returns have been poor, and in some cases the investments have lost money, so the move to better protect the public funds hasnt worked well. Douglas recommended the board hire an expert to manage investments, but the adoption of an investment policy has been delayed. ONeal provided a timeline of his work with board attorney Russell Wade toward selecting an investment policy for adoption, but Wade was on vacation and unavailable to answer the boards questions. Discussion about getting outside counsel to handle the matter led to talk of Wades contract with the board, and it was revealed the attorneyhired last Octoberhad yet to even get his own contract in place. Im not real happy with him right now. Theres other attorneys out there is my point, Hartley said. Commissioners are expecting to be able to take some kind of action on the investments at their next meeting.NRSWAContinued from 1A homicide, followed by five years of probation. He was also sentenced to five years for leaving the scene of an accident involving death and five years for leaving the scene of an accident involving injury. He received 263 days of credit for each of those charges. This past Friday, Crusaws new sentences were 18 years for leaving the scene of an accident involving death, and the same amount for felony fleeing and attempting to allude a high-speed chase resulting in death or injury. Additionally, he was sentenced to over 14-and-a-half years for vehicular homicide and the same amount for careless operation of a motor vehicle with a suspended license, resulting in death or injury. He received 1,257 days of credit for each of those charges. The resentencing was due to errors in the first sentencing, according to Union County Deputy Clerk of Court Stephanie Anderson. The motion that Crusaw filed prompted the resentencing. During the original sentencing there was reportedly some disturbance afterward. This time around, UCSO deputies were on hand to make sure everything went smoothly as the family of Norris and others left the Union County Courthouse. As a precautionary measure, sheriffs deputies secured the courthouse for Fridays hearing in the Crusaw case, Capt. Doug York replied in an email. Sheriff (Brad) Whitehead stated that cases like these remain emotional for families and our job is to protect the integrity and safety of all involved. BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At the end of this month looms the deadline to sign up for health insurance this year as required by the Affordable Care Act, most popularly known as Obamacare. Most people are required to obtain health insurance this year or face a penalty of $95 or 1 percent of their income, whichever is greater. Consumers are allowed to be uninsured for a 90-day period without facing this penalty.   The penalty will then be divided by one-twelfth for every month they are not insured.   If consumers apply before March 31, they could potentially have coverage by May 1. The open enrollment period ends March 31. Some health care advocates are pushing for an extension, but the Obama administration has not budged from the deadline. Open enrollment will not open again until November. If a consumer has a life-changing event, they could qualify for a special enrollment period. Apply for a plan at www.healthcare.gov As an alternative, residents can also sign up through a health care sharing ministry. After a slow start, Floridians are enrolling in Obamacare insurance plans in droves, reaching 442,087 as of March 1, federal officials disclosed last week. Florida had the second largest number, following Californias 868,936. More than five million people have signed up nationwide, the Obama administration announced Monday. Six million or more would meet a projection made by the Congressional Budget Office. The number has nearly tripled since the end of last year but still amounts to less than half of the 990,455 state residents considered eligible for the new marketplace created by ACA. The large numbers also reflect the fact that Florida is a highneed state. More than 20 percent of Floridians were uninsured at the start of the enrollment period, one of the highest rates in the nation; 83 percent of Floridians will qualify for some type of tax credit or cost-sharing reduction. Computer glitches, security blockages and error messages at the HealthCare.gov website marred the opening of the enrollment period in October, casting doubt on the new laws attempts to cover the uninsured. By Dec. 28, only about 158,000 Floridians had signed up for plans. Federal officials pleaded for patience, noting that many people were bound to compare insurance plans and prices in the first weeks before signing up for one. HealthCare.gov now has a feature on the home page where consumers may see plans before they apply. With minimal information (county and state of residence, number of uninsured in the household, household size, ages and income) a consumer is able to see if they qualify for any of the tax credits and costsharing reductions. Since Medicaid did not expand in Florida, anyone whose income level is below the 133 percent FPL (federal poverty level) would be exempt from paying the penalty. There are 14 categories of exemptions, including one covering low-income people who have been denied Medicaid coverage in the 25 states that have declined to expand that program under the health care law. That population alone may number about five million, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. There are 50 available for Bradford County residents and 26 plans available for Union County residents.   Plan levels are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.   The majority of residents in the two counties are qualifying for tax credits and cost-sharing reductions. Certified application counselors are available at both county health departments for New River Community Health Care to help residents shopping the Health Insurance Marketplace established by the ACA. Staci Griffis is working out of the Bradford County Health Department and Debbie Allen out of the Union County Health Department. The counselors can help residents apply and even file for available exemptions. Griffis says she can meet with individuals face-to-face and assist them in their use of the marketplace, and help them file for one of the many exemptions available. Her services are free, and in addition, consumers without access to a computer will have one made available to them. To schedule an appointment, call 904-967-7732, ext. 1603, in Bradford County and 386-4963211 in Union County. If you have any questions, you may also call 904-796-7014. Or to go ahead and apply for a health care plan yourself, simply visit www.healthcare.gov .Obamacare sign-up deadline March 31A penalty may be assessed, unless you qualify for an exemption CRUSAWContinued from 1A Crusaw questions and guide you through the Health Insurance Marketplace and HealthCare.gov at the Bradford County and Union County health departments, respectively.

UCI Dr. Julian Aviles, Union Correctional Institutions medical director, retired on Feb. 20 after 33 years of service to the institution. Dr. Aviles started his career at UCI as a Department of Corrections staff member. When medical services were privatized last year, he transferred to the staff of Corizon, the private company that contracts to provide the institutions medical care. He continued to act as medical director for the institution until his retirement. The staff at UCI cooperated to provide a retirement breakfast for Aviles on Feb. 20, as they prepared to say farewell. There were several tear-filled eyes in the crowd and Health Services Administrator Tammy Macey was no exception. She got a little choked up as she presented Dr. Aviles with a plaque to commemorate his service. Youve been wonderful to all of us, she said. Your dedication and compassion have been inspiring to everyone. Were going to miss you so much. Warden Diane Andrews echoed the sentiment and said, Youll always have a special place in our hearts. Dr. Aviles said, I am grateful for all the help you have given me over the years. We are like family here. You are like my family. Aviles, who actually retired once before and then came out of retirement to again serve as the medical director, joked with the crowd when he held up his retirement plaque and said, Maybe I will get another one of these next year. Warden Andrews said, Youll always be welcome back here. Health Services Administrator Tammy Macey hugs the retiring Dr. Julian Aviles after presenting him with a plaque to commemorate his 33 years of service to UCI. Also on hand for the presentation were Warden Diane Andrews (at left) and Nursing Supervisor Ruth DeWoody (at right). Most of Dr. Aviles time at UCI was spent as medical director for the facility.UCI says goodbye to Dr. Aviles Lt. Terry Bacon said farewell to his friends and colleagues on Jan. 31 when he retired after a 35year career at Union Correctional Institution. A luncheon celebration was held for him in the training building with current and former co-workers attending. There was laughter and a few tears as Bacons long history with the Department of Corrections was recognized and goodbyes were said. Bacon was first hired at UCI as a correctional officer in 1979. He moved up through the ranks and achieved the rank of shift lieutenant in 1993. He became the housing lieutenant in 2004, a post which is responsible for ensuring all inmates at the institution are housed correctly. The institution tries to assign cellmates so that a stronger, more aggressive inmate is not housed in the same cell as a weaker, more timid inmate. It is the housing lieutenants task to ensure this doesnt happen. In 2005, Bacon became the administrative lieutenant. As such, he was responsible for helping the colonel assign posts to all the institutions correctional staff, gathering a wide variety of necessary information and completing a tremendous number of reports for the DOC regional and central offices. The administrative lieutenant is also responsible for assisting the chief of security in completing all sorts of administrative tasks and paperwork. Bacon still held this important post upon his retirement. He was presented with a combination clock and plaque that commemorated his service, a display case that included photos and memorabilia from his years at UCI and an engraved Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun and officers baton which were purchased by his co-workers and presented in a display case. Bacon got a little choked up over the presentations and had a hard time talking at the ceremony, but in an e-mail he said, I want to thank everyone here who has worked with me, worked for me or supported me and the administration for putting up with me. I know I can be bullheaded and sometimes I may have expressed my opinion a little louder than I should have, but I always fought for what I thought was right for my staff. Bacon also reminisced a little about the changes he has seen at UCI through the years. He said when he started, an IBM Selectric II typewriter was hightech and the only camera on the compound was a Polaroid in the colonels office they used to take photos of promotions and other special events. Now, there are desktop computers in every office and video cameras all over the compound that record the movements of both inmates and staff. Weve come a long way, baby, said Bacon. I have seen many good staff come through UCI in these 35 years and there are still a great bunch of staff here. From the bottom of my heart, I truly love this institution and the staff. I never wanted to work anywhere else. Bacon said everyone needs people to look up to as they make their way through the ranks. I had good mentors coming up heroes really people I have talked to more times than I can tell about the problems I had and the joys I experienced. He said his final farewells through misty eyes and said, Today is really a bittersweet day. Warden Diane Andrews led the staff in saying a fond farewell to Bacon. Andrews and Bacon attended high school together and have known each other for a long time. To Bacon, she said, I love you dearly as a friend and, as a warden, I owe you a wealth of gratitude for the hard work you have done for this institution. Weve been through good times and bad This is a wonderful day, but a sad day as well. The best part of any job is the people you meet who care about you. Remember that we care very much. Congratulations. Regional Director Eric Lane also wished Bacon well on his retirement. He said his son played ball with Lt. Bacons son, so he actually met him in that capacity before working with him. On the institutional level, I have heard nothing but great things about him (Bacon), said Lane. Lt. Michael Harris will find some very big shoes to fill as he replaces Bacon as administrative lieutenant. Harris was first hired as a correctional officer in 1993 and became the internal security sergeant in 2008. As such, he was responsible for arranging the transport of inmates from UCI to other institutions and to court and medical appointments. In an institution the size of UCI, this can be a complicated task. In 2011, Harris was promoted to the rank of lieutenant and served on the shifts until 2012 when he was tapped to train as the replacement for the administrative lieutenant.Bacon says farewell after 35 years ABOVE: Lt.

It starts with all the riders (that want to participate) circling the arena once on horseback to an upbeat western song. The two riders with the Clubs Flag and the American Flag (usually the King and Queen of the club) remain in the arena after. The Clubs Flag moves to the center of the ring while the music changes to the National Anthem performed by LeAnn Rimes. After the National Anthem has finished, a prayer is said to ask for God to watch over all the horses and riders and to pray for healing and safety for those that have been injured or are going through hard times. It really is a site to behold, especially in todays times. Once the opening ceremonies are completed, the real fun begins and the barrel racing horses are ready to run! Recently, however, there have been numerous occasions where people have been discriminated against by one person in the club, casting a dark cloud over everything the club does. A board member at the riding club has taken it upon himself to hand judgment down on individuals that dont suit his beliefs or his variation of who should be allowed to attend the clubs events. I, being a homosexual man in a long term relationship, found myself and my partner to be the targets of such an instance on March 1st, 2014. My name is Keith Warren, and many people in the community know me. I was raised in Bradford County and attended Bradford County schools. I have also been attending events at the Bradford Riding Club for over 25 years now. I always try to help people when they need it and try to keep a smile on my face with something good to say to everyone I come across. For me, this was a completely appalling and demeaning event. My partners name is Michael Young. He is originally from Iowa and has taken an interest in horses and learning as much as he can about them and the sport of barrel racing. He is an outstanding man that is always there for our friends and his family. He gives everyone a fair chance and even if they mess up, he still offers another shot at a friendship. All in all, we arent hateful or spiteful people. We just wanted to take part in a club that has meant a lot to me in my life and try to make a difference in the lives of those around us. The night started off well. My partner and I had been voted in at the January members meeting and had volunteered to work the kitchen as part of our membership. So, we were working the kitchen and one of the board members (the Arena Director) had approached the counter and requested a beverage. That was the job we were asked to do, so we greeted him and proceeded to have his beverage made. In the meantime, he proceeded to ask us if we were gay, which would have been fine, but he used some very derogatory terms and then told us that we were not Disappointed with Bradford Riding Club in the midst of discriminationto touch anything that was to be given to him as he didnt want a gay person touching his food or beverages. I was speechless. All I could do was remain silent and smile. This is 2014 and although I know people are all raised differently and have their own beliefs, I thought that respecting another person was considered the right thing a long time ago! After he received his beverage, I presented the issue with the President of the club who did all she could to correct the situation. She initially came back to me and informed me that without witnesses, the board could not do anything. I understood this and had started to tuck the issue away in my mind. Shortly afterward, however, the board members that were present that night had approached him and he admitted to what was said. As the board began to discuss the issue with him, he offered to leave and give up his key. This offer was, to my shock and dismay, refused by the board. The President of the club came back to the kitchen to inform my partner and me of what the final verdict in the situation had been, and both of us were livid. Here we were, standing in the kitchen selling food and beverages for the Bradford County Riding Club in order to keep our membership with the club in good standing, and we are being discriminated against by one of the clubs own board members! Not only were we being discriminated against, but the rest of the board had decided that no punishment was necessary in a situation like this! Since that night, my partner and I have not been contacted by the board members that were at the Riding Club that night and we have not been issued an apology from the board member that had so much to say about our personal life. Our belief on this matter is that the club has no interest in the well-being and overall safety and security of its members. If there was any concern within the board, it was brushed under the rug in the hopes of the issue going away. Unfortunately for them, we are not willing to go away. We want this issue placed in the public eye. If you have ever been affected by discrimination, you know how serious this is and how damaging an event like this can be. We arent asking for this man to be placed in jail or the club to be shut down. We just want the right thing to be done and nobody else to ever feel as if they are not welcome. Our country has come too far for society to slip back into the ways of segregation (for any race, religion, sexuality, or gender). My partner and I just want it known that we were not treated fairly as a fellow human being should be. The Bradford Riding Clubs motto is Just for the Fun of It and I am still asking myself, What is the fun in discrimination? We were very respectful to all members at the club and worked our shifts. We just dont know what more we could have done. Michael and I would like to say a special Thank You, to all the people that have supported us and kept our spirits high during this time. It is in your darkest hours that you find out who is standing in your corner. From our hearts to yours, thank you for all the kind words and outpouring of support. We really do appreciate it! Submitted by: Keith Warren Keystone Heights Dear Editor: Now I know how stories take on a life of their own.   You start out with a short article about corruption in a small town and a comment that blows up into a cause.   That comment, from an elected official, said Hampton will cease to exist if they do not behave.   Of course Hampton will continue to exist and the state or county taking their city charter would be rare but now the stage is set.   The state and then national media have something to run with.   Imagine a town so criminal and bad that big brother has to step in and end it all.   Bad news sells and this is bad news with a whole town indicted for sleaziness.     Next month it will another person or place that excites us and makes us go how could it be so bad, we would never allow that? Having worked in this small town for almost the last thirty years I can tell you most of this story is just that, a story.   This is really about a small town steeped in poverty just hangin on like most little towns in America the last few years.   Early on Hampton boomed awhile with banks and hotels, a train stopping and strong rural economy.   Then one day a major road bypassed it and you have what happened to thousands of little towns like it.    Left behind when the cars went elsewhere. Hampton also drew attention because it is between two of the most famous speed traps in America.   I put quotes around it because speed traps are places that used to lock you up if you didnt have the cash.   Neither is a speed trap.   The highway going through them is basically an interstate highway and the locals are trying to slow them down.   There are enough signs to warn you and having driven through them most of my adult life I can say all you do is slow down for the speed limit.   Hampton tried doing the ticket thing on 301 and that angered some people.   The intersection they covered was dangerous.   A new stoplight was put in and large trucks routinely ran it because they could not slow down from 65+ in time to stop.   I go through that intersection 6-10 times a week and NEVER pull out on the green until I see them stopping.   What I believed happened in Hampton is someone with power received a ticket and not enough How Hampton became the next big (bad) thingrespect from the local marshal of Hampton and the hammer came down.   All of a sudden many Hamptonites were complaining about the corruption and the guys in the white hats swooped in to save them.   Yes, and I have a bridge to sell you in the Santa Fe Swamp. The big thing is where did the money go?   M y comment is what money.   Hampton had revenue from those tickets.   Most of that went to the state or county.   The rest paid those extra officers and gas.   T he other is the money from the water system.   Not much there.   The fingers point to a city manager and son. Everyone knows that 95% or more of that went for gas, and a deal it was as Hampton had much cheaper gas than Alachua County.   I know these people in Hampton. I have taught many of them and now their children.   No elected official is getting rich or even comfortable stealing from the bulging coffers of The City of Hampton.   Most of those city people from the manager to the council people did those jobs because most people did not want to mess with it.   They always say follow the money trail.   You first have to have money to find a trail.   I think this trail leads a different way.   Someone was treated unfairly and Hampton became the target. Yes, records were poorly kept and Hampton probably should not have followed   the leads of Waldo in police work but this great sport of holding Hampton up as some sort of southern cess pool of crime is just the media running with a comment after finding an   easy target.   The people I know in Hampton are good folks from the ex manager marshal and council people   to all the children in that school.   They say a school reflects the community   it represents.   If that is the case you can feel better because Hampton has earned more A grades since the state started that abomination than the rest of the county schools combined.   You can look it up.   And that is unusual because Hampton Elem. has been a Title One School as long as I can remember.   That means the population of the school has a majority living in poverty and eligible for free or reduced lunch.   Those schools rarely attain As and you can look that up, too. I saw where the Orlando Sentinel picked up the story and the comments from it explain how big city people feel about the backwaters like Hampton and Archer.   To quote: They practice cash register justice   Hampton is just a map smudge, two bit redneck towns that are an embarrassment to Florida,   and it goes on.   Of course bad news sells and those that read it form opinions.   If they think that Mickey Mouse parking lot in Orange County is great with its traffic and crime is wonderful they can have it. I imagine they waste or steal more money in a few hours down in Orlando than Hampton could pilfer in its entire history.   When such a small place becomes a target for investigation I have to wonder whose ox was gored. It sounds like someone was angered and dropped the hammer with their power. It made good sport for the Gainseville Sun.   Dont be fooled by all the pomp and circumstance around Hampton. It is still a nice little town with a great school and quite a bit of poverty. Nobody is getting rich in Hampton from that money pit called the City of Hampton. Steve Acree Brooker Thanks to departmentsDear Editor: When Florida adopted Daylight Saving Time, it was not without a fight!   Yes, there was a time when we did not change our clocks twice a year.   The contention was that DST would save energy.   For me, no one has been able to satisfactorily explain how Springing forward and Falling back twice a year could ever conserve energy since we did not save any daylight time its just rearranged.   But then Rearranged time doesnt sound nearly as effective as Daylight Saving Time. On March 4, 2014, SB 74: Daylight Saving Time was introduced by Senator Darren Soto and HB 701: Daylight Saving Time had a first reading by Representative Mark Danish requiring that the State of Florida and its political subdivisions observe Daylight Saving Time year round.   In March 2008, State Senator Bill Posey introduced a bill to abolish DST and keep Florida on year-round standard time.   There is opposition on both sides of the issue! My solution: At a specified date in the future either Spring forward or Fall back one-half hour (30 minutes) and keep it that way year round.   Hopefully this would be a compromise all could live with!   I have contacted my representative, my state senator and the governor with my suggestion because I would like to see an amiable end to the nonsense of changing clocks twice a year. Martha Capallia Lake ButlerChanging clocks twice a year is nonsense
