According to the report website, The annual County Health Rankings measure vital health factors, including high school graduation rates, obesity, smoking, unemployment, access to healthy foods, the quality of air and water, income and teen births in nearly every county in America. The annual rankings provide a revealing snapshot of how health is influenced by where we live, learn, work and play. They provide a starting point for change in communities. It uses 34 factors divided into seven categories that influence health to come up with the rankings using data gathered from surveys of individuals and statistics from state agencies. Many factors are to blame for Union Countys bottom-rung ranking, but the lack of medical providers is a key factor, according to Joe Pietrangelo, administrator for the Bradford and Union County Health Departments. I think that the biggest reason, in comparison to Bradford, is access to care, said Pietrangelo. Look at the providerto-population ratio. That was the primary motivation for the FQHC application. Though it didnt fare much better, Bradford came in at 60 on the annual list. It has a ratio of 2,848:1, meaning one primary care physician for nearly every 3,000 residents. Union has a ratio nearly twice that at 5,184:1. Statewide its 1,439:1. For the Top U.S. Performersthose counties in the 90th percentilethe ratio is only 1,067:1. Regarding the number of dentists available, the ratios are even worse for both counties, and dental health can affect your overall health and vice versa. Regarding the FQHC application that Pietrangelo referenced: Through the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Union County Health Department received a grant award as a Federally Qualified Health Center in April 2012 and opened its doors on Oct. 1, 2012, as New River Community Health Care Center. According to the health department website, that means it now must provide comprehensive primary health, oral, and mental health/ substance abuse services to persons in all stages of the life cycle. FQHCs provide their services to all persons regardless of ability to pay, and charge for services on a board-approved sliding-fee scale that is based on patients family income and size. What it means for the consumer, for the person that comes in for medical services, Pietrangelo said, is that, rather than us provide an episodic kind of medical care where you come in, we take care of you, and then you leave, we provide more comprehensive carelike your family doctor would. So we take care of all your medical UC last in annual health rankings, fourth year in a row See HEALTH, 2A BY GARRETT NORMAN FBLA Junior, UCHS On Feb. 19, members of the Union County High School FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) competed at the district contest in Gainesville against other high schools such as Buchholz, Bradford and Newberry. UCHS earned a spot, advancing to the state competition. These members journeyed to Orlando March 21-24 in hopes of placing in the top three and advancing to the national competition. Savannah Woodall auditioned in February and was selected to sing the national anthem at the conference during the opening session. It was a bit nerve-wracking singing in front of 3,500 people, but singing the national anthem gave me the opportunity to represent my school and show my pride for America, Woodall said. Freshman Chase Williams completed a detailed application and was one of three Florida FBLA members who selected to be an intern with Cybis Communications the entire week. In this position, he was placed behind the scenes all week to work on the setup of stage, lights, sound and video. Chase said that although he was very tired, the hands-on experience was definitely worth it. This was a year of achievement for Union County FBLA. Ten of the 19 students placed within the top five at the state level. That is a great accomplishment for a smaller school and competing against much larger ones. On Friday of that week, the Parliamentary Procedure team advanced into the top five after passing the written test portion of the contest. After displaying a presentation of correct parliamentary procedure, Noah Wright, Alyssa Bivins, Emily West and Whitney Hicks placed fifth in the state. This team worked hard before going to Orlando, practicing many days after school for hours. In Impromptu Speaking, Woodall qualified within the top eight speakers for the finals round on Friday and then placed fifth. Amanda Snyder, who took a 100-question multiple-choice test, placed fourth in Cyber Security. Kent Coburn, Nolan Ward, and Saulius Mazeika qualified for the performance round in Marketing, placing in the top five during the testing portion of the competition. Their final placing was fourth in the state. After taking a 100-question written test, Williams competed in Computer Applications where he had to take a skills examination on the computer by performing tasks in programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. Once in Orlando, he took a written test and placed second in Computer Applications. For the first time in quite a few years, UCHS will be represented at the 2014 FBLA National Leadership Conference by Williams and several delegates. This year the conference will be held in Nashville. He will compete with 150 other members in hopes to place in the top five at the national level and earn a cash award. They group is led by adviser Krystal Gunter. The support of the community is greatly appreciated. If you would like to contribute and help UCHS attend the national conference, please contact Krystal Gunter at 386-496-4193 or gunterk@union.k12.fl.us UCHS FBLA heading to national conference ABOVE: Chase Williams working behind the scenes with Cybis Communications.

And we also do all the preventative work thats associated with keeping people healthy. Union County had a respectable ranking of 16 in the area of Social & Economic Factors, showing numbers comparable to Florida regarding the number of high school graduates, children in poverty, and more, and a lower unemployment rate and half the states violent crime rate. However, it held the bottom slot for Length of Life and Health Behaviors. Factors affecting the annual health rankings include: Adult smoking: 29 percent in Union County compared to 19 percent statewide and 13 percent for top performers. Adult obesity: 36 percent compared to 26 and 25 percent, respectively. Physical inactivity: 31 percent compared to 24 and 21 percent, respectively. Excessive drinking: 19 percent compared to 16 and 7 percent, respectively. There are options in Union County for addressing these areas of concern. For instance, I Quit with AHEC, in partnership with Suwannee River Area Health Education Center and Tobacco Free Florida, regularly provides free, local two-hour tobacco cessation seminars with personalized plans and free nicotine patches, lozenges and/or gum, plus follow-up support. This months newsletter from I Quit with AHEC lists the following benefits of quitting tobacco. Positive, healthy changes that happen when smokers quit can begin within a half hour, paying immediate dividends toward investing in a potential healthier and longer life. They include: 20 minutes: Decreases in heart rate and blood pressure 12 hours: Carbon monoxide levels decrease to normal Within nine months: Cough and shortness of breath decrease, cilia regain normal function After one year: Risk of cardiovascular disease is half that of a smoker After 5-15 years: Risk of stroke is reduced to that of a nonsmoker After 10 years: Lung cancer is half that of a smoker After 15 years: Risk of cardiovascular disease is that of non-smoker. For those who need to get off the couch more, the Union County section of the PalatkaLake Butler State Trail offers about four miles of a paved path that winds through Lake Butler and southeast along creeks, forests and prairies. It provides a safe, relaxing way to walk, bike and skateand a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and get the kind of exercise critical to good health. According to MedicineNet. com, walking only 30 minutes just three times a week can reduce the risk of a heart attack or other coronary event, reduce the symptoms of depression, and significantly increase cardiorespiratory fitness. Even 10-minute walks on a regular basis can provide benefits. The Union County Health Department released an official response to the annual rankings. Here is an excerpt: The Union County Community Health Advisory Group has worked diligently toward establishing a Community Health Improvement Plan based on a current local Community Health Assessment. Based on this, the Advisory Group has set goals based on healthy food choices, healthiest weight, physical activity and tobacco prevention. These efforts are community based, beginning in elementary school and continuing right up to senior activities. Healthiest weight and physical activity are a priority for Union County, and a major step toward achieving public health In Union County, the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is designed to address specific opportunities for improved health that have been identified by the community. The department has partnered with many stakeholders to implement the CHIP and collaborates regularly to track progress. The CHIP has launched school walking programs, a Healthy Start physical activity program, and healthy food choices programs among youth and the chronically ill.

Robert Osborne Curtis Clyatt running for reelection to UC School Board (The following is a statement of intention to run for public office, submitted by the candidate.) Dear Citizens of Union County, My name is Curtis Clyatt. I am a 43-year-old lifelong resident of Union County and a graduate of Union County High School class of 1988. I have three children: Alyssa Roddenberry, 2010 UCHS graduate; Tyler Roddenberry, 2012 UCHS graduate; and Paden Clyatt, fifth-grader at Lake Butler Middle School. I am vice president and managing partner at Clyatt Well Drilling Inc. and an active, lifelong member of Harmony Free Will Baptist Church.

Thank you for your support. Sincerely, Curtis Clyatt The Lake Butler Middle School SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) organization participated in Kick Butts Day on March 19. Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco. By getting involved in Kick Butts Day and other activities, Americas youth can raise awareness about the tobacco problem, encourage peers to be tobacco-free and support effective solutions to reduce tobacco use. LBMS students began the school day by wearing all black and were unable to talk to their peers symbolizing the deaths related to tobacco use. After school, they traveled to the Tobacco Partnership Meeting to present to the counsel what SWAT is doing to make a difference along with educating the counsel on the dangers of tobacco use. Following the meeting, SWAT members canvased Lakeside Park, picking up cigarette butts and discarded tobacco products. Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, imposing a terrible toll in health, lives and dollars on families, businesses and government. Tobacco kills more than 400,000 people annually more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, illegal drugs, murders and suicides combined. Tobacco costs the U.S. more than $96 billion in health care expenditures and $97 billion in lost productivity each year. While the United States has made major progress against tobacco use, one in five Americans still smokes, and more than 3,000 kids try their first cigarette each day. Learn more about the toll of tobacco in the United States at www.kickbuttsday.org/ tobacco_101/toll_us LBMS SWAT participates in Kick Butts Day and Phylicia Harris help clean up Lakeside Park.

Situated on the Santa Fe River that borders Union and Alachua County at the edge of Worthington Springs, the park was closed in July 2012 due to storm damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby. After months of repairs, the park is once again open to the public last October, and final touches were done to finally complete the project. The park is once again under water due to flooding from recent rainfall. According to data provided by the Suwannee River Water Management District, during March the Santa Fe River was the highest its been over the last year, but at over 61 feet is still far from the June/July 2012 crest of nearly 68 feet. The record was set at 71.14 feet in 1964.

Grant Administrator Ronnie Vanzant explained to the council there would not be sufficient funding to assist the remaining three applicants, but through re-bids for lower prices on constructed homes or mobile homes, the first two applicants may be able to benefit as the third applicant was an alternate. The council agreed to seek lower bids for the benefit of the applicants. Lisa Underhill, with the Union County Health Department, told the council she is working on an outreach program for teenage sexual offenders, ages of 12-17. A highlight of the program is to teach the kids to have empathy for others and to help them reintegrate back into the community. By doing this, the teens work in the community under the supervision of program coordinators. They can do a number of things such as painting and lawn work. The teens cannot conduct any work that will expose them to other children. The council expressed concerns about any liabilities to the Town of Raiford, and would get back with her. Underhill understood, saying she was just making contact and letting them know that these health departments services are available.

I do have to give the horse most of the credit, she said. He is just my rock. If Im feeling nervous, he helps me out. Were a really good team. Babnick, who is the owner of Euphoria Stables in Bradford County, has been competing in dressage events for seven years. The word dressage is derived from the French word for training. Dressage tests are held in arenas that consist of different stations denoted by letters of the alphabet. At each station, the horse and rider are expected to execute pre-defined moves. Judges are evaluating such things as the horses flexibility, responsiveness to its rider and balance. Its like ballet with your horse, Babnick said. The horses performance should seem effortless, with little effort exerted by the rider as well. Babnick said riders use natural aids (legs, rear end) and artificial aids (whip, spurs) to get the horse to perform. Essentially, you do as much as you can with your natural aids while being invisible, Babnick said. You just increase the degree of (body) pressure to get what you want from the horse. Dressage tests, which change after a number of years, are composed of levels. Riders can apply for medals after achieving the necessary scores within designated levels. There is no set time frame in which one can achieve scores and apply for medals. You can get scores throughout your whole lifetime, Babnick said. Usually, the sport takes until youre about 70 to master. Babnick, who is 34, earned her bronze medal after competing for five years. Two years later, she earned her silver medal. I think only 800 people in the U.S. have their silver medal, Babnick said. Its really tough to get. As she competes at higher levels in hopes of achieving a Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, April 3, 2014 News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region FEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Meridith Babnick and her horse Yoshi are a team. Whatever success they achieve in the sport of dressage cannot be attained without one or the other. Therefore, as proud as Babnick is of the United States Dressage Federation bronze and silver medals she has earned, she is quick to give credit where credit is due. Bradford woman earns medals for equestrian dressage gold medal, Babnick will be among more international and Olympic-level riders. To get your silver medal, its kind of denoting that youve made the leap from being a U.S.level rider to riding with the big boys, Babnick said. The sport of dressage is European in origin. Europeans have been breeding for dressage for so long that their horses tend to be better than horses bred in the U.S., though Babnick said, The U.S. is creating some really fantastic horses and slowly and surely getting better breeding programs, but its a long process. Yoshi is from Germany and Meridith Babnick is pictured riding Yoshi during a dressage event. (Photo by Michael F. Bradtke Photography.)

yet been fully described. The southwestern portion of the state, around todays Tampa and St. Petersburg, had been surveyed, but the middle and southeastern areas were open, empty maps, with fanciful drawings of flora and waters around Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades. Welch inherited some of Bradford Countys earliest survey maps, including an area map surveyed and drawn by esteemed government surveyor A.M. Randoph. That map was completed in 1853, four years before Starke was established with its own post office, and five years before the Third Seminole War ended.

BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Patrick Welch keeps an office between the courthouse and a pizza restaurant, but much of his work is done outdoors in fields, forests, marshes, swamps, roads and homesteads all over the county. Welch is actually the 21st century model of an important figure that has been aroundor passed through here before there was a county. Welch is a surveyor. As early as the Continental Congress, an act called for all U.S. land to be surveyed. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams signed the Florida Purchase Treaty in 1819, which officially took Florida from Spain and gave it to the fledgling United States. Formal U.S. occupation began in 1821; Gen. Andrew Jackson, a hero of the 1812 War, was appointed Floridas military governor. Florida officially became a U.S. territory in 1822. The Spanish, British and others had drawn maps of the peninsula for more than 200 years. Great swaths of land, fairly accurately but generally described, had been given away in land grants to political hangers-on of European potentates. But it wasnt until Florida became a U.S. territory in 1822 that Florida began to be surveyed in earnest. That would be important, since Spanish land grants were still in effect till landowners were told otherwise. The U.S. government immediately instituted a program to settle the new territory by giving away 40-acre plots to any daring pioneer who would homestead. This would require surveyors. Floridas earliest surveyors had to have been brave men, for just as Florida became a territory, the Seminole Wars began. Alone or in small groups of two or three, the surveyors work took them into the deepest, most uninhabited woods, forests and swamps, where they worked alone with no particular protection other than their own guns, instruments and supplies. A number of early surveyors were killed by marauding Indians. Several times, surveyors called off their work and retreated to the nearest forts or sizeable towns until native unrest died down. Still, slowly but surely, the work was done. An 1844 drawing on file in the state archives shows that less than half of the state had been surveyed, and most of that was above present-day Orlando. Broad sections and ranges had been drawn in, but not necessarily numbered, including lands around what became Bradford County. A few fingers reached down as far south as Leesburg, but the area we know today as the Ocala National Forest hadnt A tip of the hat to those who surveyed Bradford Co. was centered in South Florida.) Randolphs map shows a broad overview of the general terrain and water bodies in Northeast Florida, and divides the region into townships and ranges. Readers may recall that a globe or map has latitudinal and longitudinal lines, which intersect to form a series of squares. Surveyors refer to a selected or prime north/south meridian as a base line. The area between any two such lines includes four 24-mile vertical ranges numbered west to east. Latitudinal lines running east to west intersect with meridian lines. Inside the squares formed by those intersections, four 6-mile townships are numbered south to north. However, finding Township 3 does you no good; there could be hundreds of Township 3s on a survey map. If you select a line designated as a principal meridianthe base lineyou can more easily find areas like the northeast quarter of the southwestern quarter of section 28, township 6, range 22 east. And that would put you right in the middle of present-day downtown Starke, between Church and Adams streets running east and west, and between Jackson and South streets running north to south. That area, in fact, is one of the earliest survey maps of Starke Welch. The map was first surveyed and drawn by a man named Coachman in 1881, but Welchs map is apparently an exact, redrawn copy, done by H.E. Lagergren in 1892. Not much is known about Coachman. Hjalmer Edward Lagergren, however, was a Swedish immigrant who came to Bradford County in 1872. He began to practice his craft right away and served as a principal county surveyor until his death in 1938. Lagergren had little formal education, but was a self-taught surveyor, learning his trade from textbooks and magazines. The first instruments he used in the field he made himself. A versatile renaissance man, he also worked as a writer and business manager at the Bradford County Telegraph. Given that Starkes streets were already laid out and named, with blocks and lots already numbered by the time Coachman did his survey, its unlikely that surveys a canal between Sampson and Crosby Lakes.

Coachmans 1881 survey map was the first survey of the town, but it may be the first such survey map that still exists. On a 1928 survey map, Lagergren wrote an extensive note on one of Bradfords boondoggles. Simon J. Temple, timber and lumber man turned housing developer, had a large tract surveyed for a subdivision for lot resale and home building. Temples subdivision had been planned in 1888 by William Lake, and stakes were set when land sales required them. The initial point was set in the railway track, Lagergren wrote. The system was good and convenient. But the fact was overlooked that already lands in the territory had been sold as fractions of forties, according to the government survey. Lagergren added, Furthermore, about 1896, through a sheriffs sale, Truby, Sternberg and Co. acquired all the lands in the subdivision still owned by S.J. TempleThe two survey systems in the same territory has been a source of much trouble to surveyors, tax assessors and title abstractors and deeds to lands in the territory frequently saw incongruous descriptions. Subdivision corner stakes (usually crudely shaped lightwood stakes) were mistaken for forty corners and vice versa. There were overlaps and spots called gores that could not be legally claimed by anybody. In an especially accomplished feat, Lagergan drew a survey map juxtaposing both surveys on top of each other to illustrate the difference. Welch said recently that he knew of the problems brought up by these and other surveysor lack of surveysover the years, but he thought that by now, most of the errors had been corrected. The changing nature of survey instruments required surveyors to make other adjustments. Surveyors had to have some familiarity with coordinating the positions of stars and land, since that is a basis of latitude and longitude; knowledge of a sextant was required. Other tools varied, including something as simple as a chain of 100 links, producing a land unit called, appropriately enough, a chain.

In the 1800s, instruments known as alidades and transits were used, but were actually variations on earlier tools for navigation and mapping the earths surface. Twentiethcentury innovations included the Geodimeter, introduced in the early 1950s, and which used laser beams. Total stations combined transits and theodolites, but had to be readjusted for accuracy from time to time. These days, Welch said, its all done by GPS. I can do in an hour what used to take me a day, he said. It also helps that the information can be transferred from field instruments to a computer; survey maps are now drawn with CAD or computer aided design software. Like Lagergren, Welch was not formally trained for surveying before he took up the skill. Welch was born and raised in Madison County, but was looking for a job. Bradford resident Leroy Jackson invited him to come to Starke and work in his Suwanee Grocery on West Call Street while the young man found his moorings. One Sunday, Welch was minding the store and chatting with a passing survey crew that came in for sodas and supplies. One of the men suggested he talk to their supervisor about a job. The man Welch spoke with was Merrill G. McMillan, the grandson of H.E. Lagergren. Welch was hired and trained over time and has been surveying ever since. Still fit and hardy from all that outdoor living, Welch said hes not even thinking about retiring or slowing down. Just as Native Americans caused problems because they were wary of losing their territory, modern landowners are also defensive. Welch said that one Bradford property owner told him in dark tones there was no county road running through his property. Every map Welch had seen had a county road running through the site, and as Welch stood at the property, he could see where a county road had been laid out. Welch said the landowner still insisted, There isnt a county road on this property. Andrews Center offers personal Surveyor Patrick Welch inherited a number of early Bradford maps, like this one by esteemed government surveyor A.M.

April 12 & 13Sat 9am 7pm & Sun 9am 5pm 16th Annual Bradford County ENTERTAINMENTincluding our ownClark Hill Band Saturday 1:30 pm Sponsored by: Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Dear Editor: On behalf of the Lawtey Trail Ridge Organization, please allow us to thank the many, many people who helped make the 2014 Lawtey Trail Ridge Festival a big success. Our sponsors, as always, were very generous in their support of our community and we appreciate their continued support. Sheriff Gordon Smith, Chief Shane Bennett, our City Council, our City Clerk, the Recreation Department, the constitutional elected officials, Lawtey Community School, the Florida Youth ChalleNGe Academy, the Bradford County Telegraph, radio station WEAG, other businesses in Lawtey and Starke, and all factions of our community joined us in support of this annual event. Although we are small, we feel our community deserves an opportunity to enjoy a day of fun with family and friends and that is why, in 2004, we began this annual tradition. Each year we work together to plan and provide a pleasant and an enjoyable event for all. One that Lawtey can be proud to present. Our sincerest thanks to ALL of our gold, silver, and bronze sponsors, our patrons, volunteers, entertainers, participants, vendors, visitors and EVERYONE for a spectacular day! Our hope is that each year we will be able to show our community pride in bringing forth this event as we continue to work together to convert the old Depot Building into the Lawtey Museum! Again, we say thank you for your help and look forward to next year when we come together for another opportunity to celebrate our community. Jimmie L. Scott, President Lawtey Trail Ridge Organization Thanks to all who made Trail Ridge Festival a success Dear Editor: As a property owner, we help pay for the new library, and we still pay for the new library through our taxes. I as a property owner went up and used the fax machine and was charged $1.00 per sheet to do a research paper. Willie Busby Union County Whats wrong with this picture? Dear Editor: Mr. Sapp, I will gladly sign my letters of facts. Yes, the election will decide the right man as sheriff. As for me, I say its time for a change. I am tired of the good ol boy system, and the family business. The people who live in the county that pays their taxes do not get protection as they should, a complaint call takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Then the L.E.O. just drives by, because complaint is over. If L.E.O. stops, It will make a report. Is this supposed to solve the problem? Also our tax money is paying for protection of Lake Butler for that is where the L.E.O. says. I get out on the county roads (SR 121, SR 100) and drive the speed limit, and other vehicles will run over me and pass on double yellow and curves to get around me. I get to town and who is at the red light? The vehicle that just blew by me driving at 70-80 m.p.h. John and Jerry were good men in their own way, but I think it started to decline with Jerry. Yes brother, I am for a change for law enforcement. Not fancy vehicles. Willie Busby Union County Time for a change Dear Editor: Over the years thousands of Bradford citizens were summoned by the government to go overseas and battle what the government considered to be enemies of democracy. We went and served without complaining, well not a lot, anyway. When we returned some of us felt that we might be able to do a little more so we became members of the VFW and/or the American Legion. Unfortunately a great number of those who returned did not become members. In fact over 3000 of us chose not to participateI would like to ask each and every veteran to reconsider this decision. I believe that your involvement can make a difference, just like it did when you stepped up to help the government. Regardless of where you served before, your service to our county can be a satisfying contribution. Will you visit the local VFW or the American Legion soon and find out what you can do for these local organizations. Although the VFW membership requires overseas duty the American Legion does not. Both of these organizations want and need your participation and support. I would hope that each and every veteran who lives in Bradford County would look into one or both of these fine organizations and consider being a part of one or both of them. You can learn more about them or call Bob Lawry about the VFW at 904-368-0404. The VFW halJ is located on North Bay Street behind the Library. The American Legion is located on Edwards Road across from the National Guard Armory. You Vets should consider VFW, American Legion membership Dear Editor: My name is Jan Thompson, I live in Bradford County, my husband is an inmate at UCI. He recently was given a job with the ROCK Hounds program and was so excited that he sent me the following letter wanting me to share with the local community and surrounding area about this very unique and promising program with mans best friend and some inmates who want to make a difference in the lives of some people who take a chance with these dogs who were on death row. If you wish to connect with me or learn more about the program, please feel free to contact me at this email address or you can contact Ms. Parrish at Union Correctional Institution 368-431-2000. I sincerely hope you print this as a human interest piece, in our world today with so much trouble, killings and crime going on, its nice to hear of a positive story. Sincerely, Jan Thompson Dear Jan: I want to tell you about a program I have been allowed to join. A Dog Training program called the ROCK Hounds. As you know, Union Correctional Institution is located in Raiford, Florida and is known as The Rock. It is the Alcatraz of Florida, housing the toughest, most violent inmates in the state. Once home of the original death-house and still the Inmate asks community to support ROCK Hounds program location of the majority of deathrow inmates as well as a large number of psychological statusconfinement inmates, it also houses 1200 inmates over the age of 50 in an elderly general population. Now the Rock in Rock Hounds is an acronym for Rehabilitation of Castaway K-9s. Dogs that were abused, neglected, or abandoned are taken from animal shelters and placed in a 12 week long program designed to help them become well-adjusted, housebroken pets with basic command training in order to succeed in their adoptive homes. The Rock Hounds is sponsored by First Coast No More Homeless Pets (FCNMHP). The training program we use was designed by Jay Kings Dog Academy. A lot of hard work and dedication was required from Warden Diane Andrews, Assistant Warden over programs Mr. S.B. Rossiter, and program supervisor Officer Parrish. Without their belief in and support of this program, it wouldnt exist here. The dogs we receive have sometimes been, among other things, tied to a tree and starved, kicked, beaten cruelly, yelled at, had their bones broken, and sometimes afraid, uncertain and untrusting. Only through loving care, patience, positivereinforcement and attention can they be reached. In my case, I have been in prison over 26 years. Others in the program have been in this long or longer, truly hard men. Yet we still have a well of love and kindness inside us and these dogs bring it out. We help to save them and in the process, we receive a form of redemption ourselves. We also reach out to the extended community that is our family and loved ones in society to help find permanent homes for these rehabilitated dogs. Please spread the word about the ROCK Hounds and if you know anyone who would like to adopt a housebroken, trained truly special dog, please have them contact officer Parrish at the prison. can learn more by talking to Bill Dampier at 352-235-1591. Or if you wish you can call me. My number is in the book. Thank You Malcolm Hill Morgan Road Dear Editor: There are many people in this country who believe that the definition of marriage as one man, one woman, for life should be replaced. Most of them appear to be of the so-called progressive persuasion (those who used to call themselves liberal). Support true marriage Unfortunately, even though in a minority, too many of these individuals are in positions of power and/or influence, such as politicians, mass media types and the wealthy. As a result, it appears that there is a nationwide move to actually change this important definition. Even though believers in such a travesty are not in the majority, its still possible that they can prevail. It wouldnt be the first time that a minority of people took control of a situation. For example, Germany was taken over by the Nazi party, in spite of their small numbers. To insure that these people lose this battle, those who do believe in Gods marriage had better take action. Legislators at all levels need to be contacted; organizations fighting for traditional marriage should be supported; pastors would be wise to urge their congregations to become heavily involved in this fight. And to anyone who encounters someone who spouts all kinds of reasons why we need to change the meaning of marriage, simply ask this question. If marriage is not between one man and one woman for life, what is the definition of marriage? I have yet to hear a cogent answer to this questionfrom anyone. Leonard C.

Brooker Elementary School students warmed up with activities such as running, throwing and dribbling (All photos by Patricia Cook.) Union County High School seniors Austin Dukes and Geordyn Green will continue playing football after graduation, signing letters of intent on March 26 to play at Atlanta Sports Academy, with eyes on getting the chance to move on to Division I schools. Dukes earned first-team allstate honors this past season at linebacker, while Green earned second-team honors at defensive back. The Telegraph-Times-Monitor will publish a more in-depth story on these two student-athletes in next weeks issue. was quite the find for Babnick, who bought him at a farm in Virginia after seeing an advertisement online. I feel like the luckiest kid on the planet with him, Babnick said, adding, He and I are just best friends. That friendship got off to a rocky start. Babnick said the first time she met Yoshi at the Virginia farm, he bit her every time she touched his head. She was sold, though, after riding him. Every single thing she wanted Yoshi to do, he did. He and I just got each other, Babnick said. There was one excitable moment as the two were still forming their bond. They were at a show when something spooked Yoshi, causing him to run out of the arena. Babnick said she couldnt think of what to do to make him slow down and pay attention to her again. What popped into Babnicks mind was to start singing the Beatles Yellow Submarine. I couldnt think of what else to do except to get him listening, Babnick said. Yoshi responded to the song, which is now part of his show routine. As Babnick and Yoshi circle the arena prior to the start of competition, she hums Yellow Submarine. He loves it, Babnick said. Its just been our thing ever since. Horses that are performing well on dressage tests usually range in age from 10 to 14, Babnick said, adding that they retire in their late teens. Yoshi is 21 and was retired from competition when Babnick bought him. However, reentering the arena seems to have given him a new life. Babnick said you can see it in Yoshis eyes every time he exits his trailer. He just marches like a 6-yearold, Babnick said. It takes 10 years off his life every time he goes to a show. Still, Babnick knows Yoshis competition days are numbered. Thats why she treasures every show theyre at. Every rides a gift, Babnick said. I would hope we could get through another season for his sake because he enjoys it so much. Babnick has a younger horse named Junior who could follow in Yoshis footprints. Junior, who is almost 12 and has participated in some shows with Babnick, has fantastic breeding and is a super cool horse, Babnick said. However, he still gets a little nervous entering the arena. Thats why even though Junior achieved some good scores at a show in Atlanta, Babnick is still taking it slow with him. He did wonderfully, Babnick said in regard to Juniors performance in Atlanta. On paper, there wasnt a reason to say, Lets wait and work harder at home, but I could feel it. He did beautifully, but I could just feel it. We rode at night. There was music. There were lights on. You could just feel him (thinking), I dont know if Im really OK. Whether its Junior or another horse, Babnick cannot earn another bronze or silver medal. Earning a particular medal is a one-time achievement, though Babnick said she will still aim medal-qualifying scores for each horse she rides just because its fun. Since it is fun, Babnick has no intentions of quitting dressage any time soon. She said she may be 90 and in a wheelchair one day, but someone will be pushing her up to a mounting block because she cant imagine not being on the back of a horse. Its so good for a persons mind, Babnick said. For my mind, theres nothing else like it.

below. Fitts provided some tips, too, on how to hook soft plastics so that rough action will not wear and tear the plastic where the hooks enters. Since the detail is too much to address in this article, ask someone who attended the meeting how to use a swivel to prevent soft plastic wear and tear. Outdoors outlook When the weather dips into the high 30s during the latter part of March, the spring bass bite is going to be impacted. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened this week. Not only was the temperature change significant, but also the wind was just as bad. Joey Tyson called some of the regulars of the Bald Eagle tournaments and called off the weekly event, but some will usually miss the message and others will brave the elements anyway. Most of those who challenged the weather on March 26 will admit that it was a wasted effort. The effects of the front should have worn off by March 30, and the bass spawn should resume. By the next full moon, which is on April 30, the best of the bass spawn will be over. Jeff Fitts, at the March 27 Crosshorn Ministries meeting, told us that the post-spawn period for bass marks the beginning of the yearly calendar that will produce the hottest top-water action of the year. There probably is no more exciting fishing action than a largemouth bass crushing a top-water lure. With the exception of last weeks cold front, the trend toward warmer weather should do nothing but encourage trout and reds to occupy the inshore flats. Both coasts are providing good reports of strong sheepshead bite. This time of the year will produce some of the largest samples of the banded fish to be caught all year. They are typically taken with jigs supplemented with shrimp and fiddler crabs. Spring always brings a host of large fish into the inland waters. Not the least of these will be the king mackerel that will soon be lurking around the coastal waters. What is heating up pretty good right now on the east coast is the black drum bite. These fish are caught in many of the same locations a sheepshead, but they have a tendency to occupy slightly deeper water. These are large fish and will easily top 50 pounds. Tight lines until next week.

Fitts talked and answered numerous questions about bass fishing issues for most of his presentation. Much of his initial discussion was related to the different types of fishing lines available and their advantages and disadvantages. Fitts indicated that fluorocarbon line has little give, but is almost invisible under water. Fluorocarbon will also sink and, consequently, is a more effective line for underwater lures. Conversely, monofilament line provides some stretch and will float. As such, it is a better line to use with top-water lures. Braided line provides much more strength with no additional diameter size, and therefore is much better to use in thick cover. Fitts also talked about flipping and pitching fishing techniques and where and when they are advantageous. Both techniques are underhanded casts that are used to pinpoint short casts that are usually into thick cover. Both of the presentations are effective in water that has a heavy growth of hydrilla such as Rowell and Sampson lakes. The thick hydrilla growth typically provides a heavy cover mat at the water surface that attracts a lot of bait, which in turn attracts bass. Fitts described the types of lures and best rigs that would allow the fisherman to punch through the surface mat and make an effective presentation to the bass that typically hover Fitts talks Crosshorn meeting Jeff Fitts illustrates a hook. Bradford High School pitcher Jackson Reddish gave up one run and struck out nine to help the Tornadoes defeat visiting Keystone Heights 4-1 in a District 5-4A baseball game on March 25.

Born July 28, 1928 in Palm Beach County, she was raised in Ft. Lauderdale. She graduated from Mary Washington College in 1950 and was commissioned in the U.S. Navy, serving her country as a Naval Intelligence Officer in Washington D.C. and Hawaii, where she met and married her late husband, Dr. Philip Marshall Payne II, also a Naval Officer. Fittingly, she outranked him. Subsequently, the Navy transferred them to Japan for a brief time. After returning to the United States, Ann delivered her first set of twins, Philip Marshall Payne III and Sarah Margaret Ann at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. Upon her husbands acceptance to medical school at the University of Virginia, the family moved to Charlottesville, Va., where she delivered Oona Mary Catherine, and her second set of twins, Sarah Catherine and Susan Elizabeth. She was a loving, patient, devoted and supportive mother who was adored and respected. Her children list as one of their mothers major accomplishments the raising of five children, born within a three-year span, without ever raising her voice. Ann was a woman of quiet strength, great intelligence and fierce determination, who was equally beautiful inside and out. She was a voracious reader, and an accomplished writer and painter. A long-time member of the Audubon Society, she had a deep and abiding love of nature and joyfully passed this love to her children, teaching them to identify and appreciate birds, animals, plants and trees. A Master Gardener, an avid collector of books, art and natures treasures, Ann transformed each place the family moved into a home and yard of beauty; a haven for her family and numerous pets, as well as the wildlife. She loved travel, and after many family vacations to the Bahamas aboard their boat Paganos, she and her husband Phil explored the world together choosing roads less traveled. Their adventures took them to Alaska, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, Morocco, Tibet, China, both the Northern and Southern Spice Routes, and many other places. Both were life-long learners and together they found great joy and deepened respect for world cultures, learning local customs and collecting the fine handiwork of each.

BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Members and friends of Beulah Baptist Church, located on S.R. 21 near Keystone Heights, gathered for its annual Heritage Day on March 29. Participants met at the church, then drove to the main gate at Camp Blanding, where they were met by military police and escorted to the old cemetery, more than 5 miles away. Beulah was founded in 1850 when Zachary Taylor was president of the United States. The land that comprises presentday Clay County was then part of Duval County. The church met in a small, log cabin on land owned by Kindred B. Drew. A creek ran nearby, and early members had to ford it to get to services. Later, Drew deeded 2 acres to 12B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 3, 2014 GORTONS PORTSIDECOOKED SHRIMP70-90 CT 10-OZCANTALOUPESMANGOES$599$4992 $3 wed thurs fri sat sun mon tuesPRICES AVAILABLE02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 Open 7 Days a Week 8am to 8pm1371 South Walnut St. (Hwy 301) Starke (904)368-9188 Amazing quality.

Saunders of Penney Farms paid tribute to his parents, who died when he was an infant. the church, which included space for a cemetery. The first person buried there was his 38-year-old wife, Martha Drew, who died in 1865. The old cemetery is maintained by the National Guard, marked as a sensitive site and separated from the outside by a chain-link fence. There are over 100 graves in the cemetery. Grave markers bear the names of families still living in the areaBoree, Harris, Hickey, Sapp, Saunders, Thomas, Weeks and Wilson, among others. The government began using the property around Beulahs original site as the threat of World War II loomed and the land was needed for Camp Blanding. Beulah members, considering it [their] Christian duty to assist [their] nation in this great movement of preparedness, began holding all their meetings at a nearby school. In 1942, the Beulah Cemetery, which is located at Camp Blanding and maintained by the Florida has more than 100 graves. government contracted to pay the church $800 for its property. Eventually, the church was given the plot of land it now occupies on S.R. 21, which also includes a cemetery. Twenty-one people, including two children, braved rainy conditions and muddy roads to make the trek to the cemetery and honor their dead. Jimmy Weeks, tax collector of Clay Country, spoke briefly to those assembled, honoring his mother, Carolyn Weeks, and his sister, Louisa Weeks Padgett, who have kept the tradition going for several generations and hope to continue for many years to come. The gathering was followed by a covered-dish dinner at Beulah Baptist Church, with an egg hunt as a special early Easter treat for the churchs children. Following its performance in the Daytona Beach Softball Slam, the Bradford High School softball team won three District 5-4A games by a combined score of 48-6, including a 13-1 win over visiting Keystone Heights on March 31. Lainie Rodgers hit a double and drove in three runs in the win over Keystone, which improved Bradfords district record to 7-2. Bradford (13-3 overall) went up 7-0 after the first two innings, getting RBI doubles from Rodgers and Annie Luke. That was more than enough run support for pitcher Ashton Adkins, who gave up three hits and no walks in four innings. She had eight strikeouts, including three straight after Keystones Cece Buckley led off the top of the third with a single. Rodgers finished the game 2-for-4. Taylor Cruce, who drove in Bradords final two runs, had two RBI, while Adkins, Luke and Jordan Davis each had one.

According to the report website, The annual County Health Rankings measure vital health factors, including high school graduation rates, obesity, smoking, unemployment, access to healthy foods, the quality of air and water, income and teen births in nearly every county in America. The annual rankings provide a revealing snapshot of how health is influenced by where we live, learn, work and play. They provide a starting point for change in communities. It uses 34 factors divided into seven categories that influence health to come up with the rankings using data gathered from surveys of individuals and statistics from state agencies. Many factors are to blame for Union Countys bottom-rung ranking, but the lack of medical providers is a key factor, according to Joe Pietrangelo, administrator for the Bradford and Union County   Health Departments. I think that the biggest reason, in comparison to Bradford, is access to care, said Pietrangelo. Look at the providerto-population ratio. That was the primary motivation for the FQHC application. Though it didnt fare much better, Bradford came in at 60 on the annual list. It has a ratio of 2,848:1, meaning one primary care physician for nearly every 3,000 residents. Union has a ratio nearly twice that at 5,184:1. Statewide its 1,439:1. For the Top U.S. Performersthose counties in the 90th percentilethe ratio is only 1,067:1. Regarding the number of dentists available, the ratios are even worse for both counties, and dental health can affect your overall health and vice versa. Regarding the FQHC application that Pietrangelo referenced: Through the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Union County Health Department received a grant award as a Federally Qualified Health Center in April 2012 and opened its doors on Oct. 1, 2012, as New River Community Health Care Center. According to the health department website, that means it now must provide comprehensive primary health, oral, and mental health/ substance abuse services to persons in all stages of the life cycle. FQHCs provide their services to all persons regardless of ability to pay, and charge for services on a board-approved sliding-fee scale that is based on patients family income and size. What it means for the consumer, for the person that comes in for medical services, Pietrangelo said, is that, rather than us provide an episodic kind of medical care where you come in, we take care of you, and then you leave, we provide more comprehensive carelike your family doctor would. So we take care of all your medical UC last in annual health rankings, fourth year in a rowSee HEALTH, 2A BY GARRETT NORMAN FBLA Junior, UCHS On Feb. 19, members of the Union County High School FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) competed at the district contest in Gainesville against other high schools such as Buchholz, Bradford and Newberry. UCHS earned a spot, advancing to the state competition. These members journeyed to Orlando March 21-24 in hopes of placing in the top three and advancing to the national competition. Savannah Woodall auditioned in February and was selected to sing the national anthem at the conference during the opening session. It was a bit nerve-wracking singing in front of 3,500 people, but singing the national anthem gave me the opportunity to represent my school and show my pride for America, Woodall said. Freshman Chase Williams completed a detailed application and was one of three Florida FBLA members who selected to be an intern with Cybis Communications the entire week. In this position, he was placed behind the scenes all week to work on the setup of stage, lights, sound and video. Chase said that although he was very tired, the hands-on experience was definitely worth it. This was a year of achievement for Union County FBLA. Ten of the 19 students placed within the top five at the state level. That is a great accomplishment for a smaller school and competing against much larger ones. On Friday of that week, the Parliamentary Procedure team advanced into the top five after passing the written test portion of the contest. After displaying a presentation of correct parliamentary procedure, Noah Wright, Alyssa Bivins, Emily West and Whitney Hicks placed fifth in the state. This team worked hard before going to Orlando, practicing many days after school for hours. In Impromptu Speaking, Woodall qualified within the top eight speakers for the finals round on Friday and then placed fifth. Amanda Snyder, who took a 100-question multiple-choice test, placed fourth in Cyber Security. Kent Coburn, Nolan Ward, and Saulius Mazeika qualified for the performance round in Marketing, placing in the top five during the testing portion of the competition. Their final placing was fourth in the state. After taking a 100-question written test, Williams competed in Computer Applications where he had to take a skills examination on the computer by performing tasks in programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. Once in Orlando, he took a written test and placed second in Computer Applications. For the first time in quite a few years, UCHS will be represented at the 2014 FBLA National Leadership Conference by Williams and several delegates. This year the conference will be held in Nashville. He will compete with 150 other members in hopes to place in the top five at the national level and earn a cash award. They group is led by adviser Krystal Gunter. The support of the community is greatly appreciated. If you would like to contribute and help UCHS attend the national conference, please contact Krystal Gunter at 386-496-4193 or gunterk@union.k12.fl.us .UCHS FBLA heading to national conference ABOVE: Chase Williams working behind the scenes with Cybis Communications.

And we also do all the preventative work thats associated with keeping people healthy. Union County had a respectable ranking of 16 in the area of Social & Economic Factors, showing numbers comparable to Florida regarding the number of high school graduates, children in poverty, and more, and a lower unemployment rate and half the states violent crime rate. However, it held the bottom slot for Length of Life and Health Behaviors. Factors affecting the annual health rankings include: Adult smoking: 29 percent in Union County compared to 19 percent statewide and 13 percent for top performers. Adult obesity: 36 percent compared to 26 and 25 percent, respectively. Physical inactivity: 31 percent compared to 24 and 21 percent, respectively. Excessive drinking: 19 percent compared to 16 and 7 percent, respectively. There are options in Union County for addressing these areas of concern. For instance, I Quit with AHEC, in partnership with Suwannee River Area Health Education Center and Tobacco Free Florida, regularly provides free, local two-hour tobacco cessation seminars with personalized plans and free nicotine patches, lozenges and/or gum, plus follow-up support. This months newsletter from I Quit with AHEC lists the following benefits of quitting tobacco. Positive, healthy changes that happen when smokers quit can begin within a half hour, paying immediate dividends toward investing in a potential healthier and longer life. They include: 20 minutes: Decreases in heart rate and blood pressure 12 hours: Carbon monoxide levels decrease to normal Within nine months: Cough and shortness of breath decrease, cilia regain normal function After one year: Risk of cardiovascular disease is half that of a smoker After 5-15 years: Risk of stroke is reduced to that of a nonsmoker After 10 years: Lung cancer is half that of a smoker After 15 years: Risk of cardiovascular disease is that of non-smoker. For those who need to get off the couch more, the Union County section of the PalatkaLake Butler State Trail offers about four miles of a paved path that winds through Lake Butler and southeast along creeks, forests and prairies. It provides a safe, relaxing way to walk, bike and skateand a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and get the kind of exercise critical to good health. According to MedicineNet. com, walking only 30 minutes just three times a week can reduce the risk of a heart attack or other coronary event, reduce the symptoms of depression, and significantly increase cardiorespiratory fitness. Even 10-minute walks on a regular basis can provide benefits. The Union County Health Department released an official response to the annual rankings. Here is an excerpt: The Union County Community Health Advisory Group has worked diligently toward establishing a Community Health Improvement Plan based on a current local Community Health Assessment. Based on this, the Advisory Group has set goals based on healthy food choices, healthiest weight, physical activity and tobacco prevention. These efforts are community based, beginning in elementary school and continuing right up to senior activities. Healthiest weight and physical activity are a priority for Union County, and a major step toward achieving public health In Union County, the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is designed to address specific opportunities for improved health that have been identified by the community. The department has partnered with many stakeholders to implement the CHIP and collaborates regularly to track progress. The CHIP has launched school walking programs, a Healthy Start physical activity program, and healthy food choices programs among youth and the chronically ill.

Dear Citizens of Union County, My name is Curtis Clyatt. I am a 43-year-old lifelong resident of Union County and a graduate of Union County High School class of 1988. I have three children: Alyssa Roddenberry, 2010 UCHS graduate; Tyler Roddenberry, 2012 UCHS graduate; and Paden Clyatt, fifth-grader at Lake Butler Middle School.

Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco. By getting involved in Kick Butts Day and other activities, Americas youth can raise awareness about the tobacco problem, encourage peers to be tobacco-free and support effective solutions to reduce tobacco use. LBMS students began the school day by wearing all black and were unable to talk to their peers symbolizing the deaths related to tobacco use. After school, they traveled to the Tobacco Partnership Meeting to present to the counsel what SWAT is doing to make a difference along with educating the counsel on the dangers of tobacco use. Following the meeting, SWAT members canvased Lakeside Park, picking up cigarette butts and discarded tobacco products. Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, imposing a terrible toll in health, lives and dollars on families, businesses and government. Tobacco kills more than 400,000 people annually more than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, illegal drugs, murders and suicides combined. Tobacco costs the U.S. more than $96 billion in health care expenditures and $97 billion in lost productivity each year. While the United States has made major progress against tobacco use, one in five Americans still smokes, and more than 3,000 kids try their first cigarette each day. Learn more about the toll of tobacco in the United States at en www.kickbuttsday.org/ tobacco_101/toll_us .LBMS SWAT participates in Kick Butts Day and Phylicia Harris help clean up Lakeside Park.

Situated on the Santa Fe River that borders Union and Alachua County at the edge of Worthington Springs, the park was closed in July 2012 due to storm damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby. After months of repairs, the park is once again open to the public last October, and final touches were done to finally complete the project. The park is once again under water due to flooding from recent rainfall. According to data provided by the Suwannee River Water Management District, during March the Santa Fe River was the highest its been over the last year, but at over 61 feet is still far from the June/July 2012 crest of nearly 68 feet. The record was set at 71.14 feet in 1964.

Grant Administrator Ronnie Vanzant explained to the council there would not be sufficient funding to assist the remaining three applicants, but through re-bids for lower prices on constructed homes or mobile homes, the first two applicants may be able to benefit as the third applicant was an alternate. The council agreed to seek lower bids for the benefit of the applicants. Lisa Underhill, with the Union County Health Department, told the council she is working on an outreach program for teenage sexual offenders, ages of 12-17. A highlight of the program is to teach the kids to have empathy for others and to help them reintegrate back into the community. By doing this, the teens work in the community under the supervision of program coordinators. They can do a number of things such as painting and lawn work. The teens cannot conduct any work that will expose them to other children. The council expressed concerns about any liabilities to the Town of Raiford, and would get back with her. Underhill understood, saying she was just making contact and letting them know that these health departments services are available.

I do have to give the horse most of the credit, she said. He is just my rock. If Im feeling nervous, he helps me out. Were a really good team. Babnick, who is the owner of Euphoria Stables in Bradford County, has been competing in dressage events for seven years. The word dressage is derived from the French word for training. Dressage tests are held in arenas that consist of different stations denoted by letters of the alphabet. At each station, the horse and rider are expected to execute pre-defined moves. Judges are evaluating such things as the horses flexibility, responsiveness to its rider and balance. Its like ballet with your horse, Babnick said. The horses performance should seem effortless, with little effort exerted by the rider as well. Babnick said riders use natural aids (legs, rear end) and artificial aids (whip, spurs) to get the horse to perform. Essentially, you do as much as you can with your natural aids while being invisible, Babnick said. You just increase the degree of (body) pressure to get what you want from the horse. Dressage tests, which change after a number of years, are composed of levels. Riders can apply for medals after achieving the necessary scores within designated levels. There is no set time frame in which one can achieve scores and apply for medals. You can get scores throughout your whole lifetime, Babnick said. Usually, the sport takes until youre about 70 to master. Babnick, who is 34, earned her bronze medal after competing for five years. Two years later, she earned her silver medal. I think only 800 people in the U.S. have their silver medal, Babnick said. Its really tough to get.

Whatever success they achieve in the sport of dressage cannot be attained without one or the other. Therefore, as proud as Babnick is of the United States Dressage Federation bronze and silver medals she has earned, she is quick to give credit where credit is due.Bradford woman earns medals for equestrian dressagegold medal, Babnick will be among more international and Olympic-level riders. To get your silver medal, its kind of denoting that youve made the leap from being a U.S.level rider to riding with the big boys, Babnick said. The sport of dressage is European in origin. Europeans have been breeding for dressage for so long that their horses tend to be better than horses bred in the U.S., though Babnick said, The U.S. is creating some really fantastic horses and slowly and surely getting better breeding programs, but its a long process. Yoshi is from Germany and Meridith Babnick is pictured riding Yoshi during a dressage event. (Photo by Michael F. Bradtke Photography.)

The southwestern portion of the state, around todays Tampa and St. Petersburg, had been surveyed, but the middle and southeastern areas were open, empty maps, with fanciful drawings of flora and waters around Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades. Welch inherited some of Bradford Countys earliest survey maps, including an area map surveyed and drawn by esteemed government surveyor A.M. Randoph. That map was completed in 1853, four years before Starke was established with its own post office, and five years before the Third Seminole War ended.

BY JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Patrick Welch keeps an office between the courthouse and a pizza restaurant, but much of his work is done outdoors in fields, forests, marshes, swamps, roads and homesteads all over the county. Welch is actually the 21st century model of an important figure that has been aroundor passed through here before there was a county. Welch is a surveyor. As early as the Continental Congress, an act called for all U.S. land to be surveyed. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams signed the Florida Purchase Treaty in 1819, which officially took Florida from Spain and gave it to the fledgling United States. Formal U.S. occupation began in 1821; Gen. Andrew Jackson, a hero of the 1812 War, was appointed Floridas military governor. Florida officially became a U.S. territory in 1822. The Spanish, British and others had drawn maps of the peninsula for more than 200 years. Great swaths of land, fairly accurately but generally described, had been given away in land grants to political hangers-on of European potentates. But it wasnt until Florida became a U.S. territory in 1822 that Florida began to be surveyed in earnest. That would be important, since Spanish land grants were still in effect till landowners were told otherwise. The U.S. government immediately instituted a program to settle the new territory by giving away 40-acre plots to any daring pioneer who would homestead. This would require surveyors. Floridas earliest surveyors had to have been brave men, for just as Florida became a territory, the Seminole Wars began. Alone or in small groups of two or three, the surveyors work took them into the deepest, most uninhabited woods, forests and swamps, where they worked alone with no particular protection other than their own guns, instruments and supplies. A number of early surveyors were killed by marauding Indians. Several times, surveyors called off their work and retreated to the nearest forts or sizeable towns until native unrest died down. Still, slowly but surely, the work was done. An 1844 drawing on file in the state archives shows that less than half of the state had been surveyed, and most of that was above present-day Orlando. Broad sections and ranges had been drawn in, but not necessarily numbered, including lands around what became Bradford County. A few fingers reached down as far south as Leesburg, but the area we know today as the Ocala National Forest hadnt A tip of the hat to those who surveyed Bradford Co.was centered in South Florida.) Randolphs map shows a broad overview of the general terrain and water bodies in Northeast Florida, and divides the region into townships and ranges. Readers may recall that a globe or map has latitudinal and longitudinal lines, which intersect to form a series of squares. Surveyors refer to a selected or prime north/south meridian as a base line. The area between any two such lines includes four 24-mile vertical ranges numbered west to east. Latitudinal lines running east to west intersect with meridian lines. Inside the squares formed by those intersections, four 6-mile townships are numbered south to north. However, finding Township 3 does you no good; there could be hundreds of Township 3s on a survey map. If you select a line designated as a principal meridianthe base lineyou can more easily find areas like the northeast quarter of the southwestern quarter of section 28, township 6, range 22 east. And that would put you right in the middle of present-day downtown Starke, between Church and Adams streets running east and west, and between Jackson and South streets running north to south. That area, in fact, is one of the earliest survey maps of Starke Welch. The map was first surveyed and drawn by a man named Coachman in 1881, but Welchs map is apparently an exact, redrawn copy, done by H.E. Lagergren in 1892. Not much is known about Coachman. Hjalmer Edward Lagergren, however, was a Swedish immigrant who came to Bradford County in 1872. He began to practice his craft right away and served as a principal county surveyor until his death in 1938. Lagergren had little formal education, but was a self-taught surveyor, learning his trade from textbooks and magazines. The first instruments he used in the field he made himself. A versatile renaissance man, he also worked as a writer and business manager at the Bradford County Telegraph. Given that Starkes streets were already laid out and named, with blocks and lots already numbered by the time Coachman did his survey, its unlikely that surveys a canal between Sampson and Crosby Lakes.

Coachmans 1881 survey map was the first survey of the town, but it may be the first such survey map that still exists. On a 1928 survey map, Lagergren wrote an extensive note on one of Bradfords boondoggles. Simon J. Temple, timber and lumber man turned housing developer, had a large tract surveyed for a subdivision for lot resale and home building. Temples subdivision had been planned in 1888 by William Lake, and stakes were set when land sales required them. The initial point was set in the railway track, Lagergren wrote. The system was good and convenient. But the fact was overlooked that already lands in the territory had been sold as fractions of forties, according to the government survey. Lagergren added, Furthermore, about 1896, through a sheriffs sale, Truby, Sternberg and Co. acquired all the lands in the subdivision still owned by S.J. TempleThe two survey systems in the same territory has been a source of much trouble to surveyors, tax assessors and title abstractors and deeds to lands in the territory frequently saw incongruous descriptions. Subdivision corner stakes (usually crudely shaped lightwood stakes) were mistaken for forty corners and vice versa. There were overlaps and spots called gores that could not be legally claimed by anybody. In an especially accomplished feat, Lagergan drew a survey map juxtaposing both surveys on top of each other to illustrate the difference. Welch said recently that he knew of the problems brought up by these and other surveysor lack of surveysover the years, but he thought that by now, most of the errors had been corrected. The changing nature of survey instruments required surveyors to make other adjustments. Surveyors had to have some familiarity with coordinating the positions of stars and land, since that is a basis of latitude and longitude; knowledge of a sextant was required. Other tools varied, including something as simple as a chain of 100 links, producing a land unit called, appropriately enough, a chain.

In the 1800s, instruments known as alidades and transits were used, but were actually variations on earlier tools for navigation and mapping the earths surface. Twentiethcentury innovations included the Geodimeter, introduced in the early 1950s, and which used laser beams. Total stations combined transits and theodolites, but had to be readjusted for accuracy from time to time. These days, Welch said, its all done by GPS. I can do in an hour what used to take me a day, he said. It also helps that the information can be transferred from field instruments to a computer; survey maps are now drawn with CAD or computer aided design software. Like Lagergren, Welch was not formally trained for surveying before he took up the skill. Welch was born and raised in Madison County, but was looking for a job. Bradford resident Leroy Jackson invited him to come to Starke and work in his Suwanee Grocery on West Call Street while the young man found his moorings. One Sunday, Welch was minding the store and chatting with a passing survey crew that came in for sodas and supplies. One of the men suggested he talk to their supervisor about a job. The man Welch spoke with was Merrill G. McMillan, the grandson of H.E. Lagergren. Welch was hired and trained over time and has been surveying ever since. Still fit and hardy from all that outdoor living, Welch said hes not even thinking about retiring or slowing down. Just as Native Americans caused problems because they were wary of losing their territory, modern landowners are also defensive. Welch said that one Bradford property owner told him in dark tones there was no county road running through his property. Every map Welch had seen had a county road running through the site, and as Welch stood at the property, he could see where a county road had been laid out. Welch said the landowner still insisted, There isnt a county road on this property.Andrews Center offers personal Surveyor Patrick Welch inherited a number of early Bradford maps, like this one by esteemed government surveyor A.M.

April 12 & 13Sat 9am 7pm & Sun 9am 5pm 16th Annual Bradford County ENTERTAINMENTincluding our ownClark Hill Band Saturday 1:30 pm Sponsored by: Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Dear Editor: On behalf of the Lawtey Trail Ridge Organization, please allow us to thank the many, many people who helped make the 2014   Lawtey Trail Ridge Festival a big success.   Our sponsors, as always, were very generous in their support of our community and we appreciate their continued support.   Sheriff Gordon Smith, Chief Shane Bennett, our City Council, our City Clerk, the Recreation Department, the constitutional elected officials, Lawtey Community School, the Florida Youth ChalleNGe Academy, the Bradford County Telegraph, radio station WEAG, other businesses in Lawtey and Starke, and all factions of our community joined us in support of this annual event.   Although we are small, we feel our community deserves an opportunity to enjoy a day of fun with family and friends and that is why, in 2004, we began this annual tradition.   Each year we work together to plan and provide a pleasant and an enjoyable event for all.   One that Lawtey can be proud to present. Our sincerest thanks to ALL of our gold, silver, and bronze sponsors, our patrons, volunteers, entertainers, participants, vendors, visitors and   EVERYONE for a spectacular day!   Our hope is that each year we will be able to show our community pride in bringing forth this event as we continue to work together to convert the old Depot Building into the Lawtey Museum! Again, we say thank you for your help and look forward to next year when we come together for another opportunity to celebrate our community. Jimmie L. Scott, President Lawtey Trail Ridge OrganizationThanks to all who made Trail Ridge Festival a successDear Editor: As a property owner, we help pay for the new library, and we still pay for the new library through our taxes. I as a property owner went up and used the fax machine and was charged $1.00 per sheet to do a research paper. Willie Busby Union CountyWhats wrong with this picture?Dear Editor: Mr. Sapp, I will gladly sign my letters of facts. Yes, the election will decide the right man as sheriff. As for me, I say its time for a change. I am tired of the good ol boy system, and the family business. The people who live in the county that pays their taxes do not get protection as they should, a complaint call takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Then the L.E.O. just drives by, because complaint is over. If L.E.O. stops, It will make a report. Is this supposed to solve the problem? Also our tax money is paying for protection of Lake Butler for that is where the L.E.O. says. I get out on the county roads (SR 121, SR 100) and drive the speed limit, and other vehicles will run over me and pass on double yellow and curves to get around me. I get to town and who is at the red light? The vehicle that just blew by me driving at 70-80 m.p.h. John and Jerry were good men in their own way, but I think it started to decline with Jerry. Yes brother, I am for a change for law enforcement. Not fancy vehicles. Willie Busby Union CountyTime for a changeDear Editor: Over the years thousands of Bradford citizens were summoned by the government to go overseas and battle what the government considered to be enemies of democracy. We went and served without complaining, well not a lot, anyway. When we returned some of us felt that we might be able to do a little more so we became members of the VFW and/or the American Legion. Unfortunately a great number of those who returned did not become members. In fact over 3000 of us chose not to participateI would like to ask each and every veteran to reconsider this decision. I believe that your involvement can make a difference, just like it did when you stepped up to help the government. Regardless of where you served before, your service to our county can be a satisfying contribution. Will you visit the local VFW or the American Legion soon and find out what you can do for these local organizations. Although the VFW membership requires overseas duty the American Legion does not. Both of these organizations want and need your participation and support. I would hope that each and every veteran who lives in Bradford County would look into one or both of these fine organizations and consider being a part of one or both of them. You can learn more about them or call Bob Lawry about the VFW at 904-368-0404. The VFW halJ is located on North Bay Street behind the Library. The American Legion is located on Edwards Road across from the National Guard Armory. You Vets should consider VFW, American Legion membershipDear Editor: My name is Jan Thompson, I live in Bradford County,   my husband is an inmate at UCI.   He recently was given a job with the ROCK Hounds program and was so excited that he sent me the following letter wanting me to share with the local community and surrounding area about this very unique and promising program with mans best friend and some inmates who want to make a difference in the lives of some people who take a chance with these dogs who were on death row.   If you wish to connect with me or learn more about the program, please feel free to contact me at this email address or you can contact Ms. Parrish at Union Correctional Institution 368-431-2000.   I sincerely hope you print this as a human interest piece, in our world today with so much trouble, killings and crime going on, its nice to hear of a positive story. Sincerely, Jan Thompson Dear Jan: I want to tell you about a program I have been allowed to join.   A Dog Training program called the ROCK Hounds.   As you know, Union Correctional Institution is located in Raiford, Florida and is known as The Rock.   It is the Alcatraz of Florida, housing the toughest, most violent inmates in the state.   Once home of the original death-house and still the Inmate asks community to support ROCK Hounds programlocation of the majority of deathrow inmates as well as a large number of psychological statusconfinement inmates, it also houses 1200 inmates over the age of 50 in an elderly general population. Now the Rock in Rock Hounds is an acronym for Rehabilitation of Castaway K-9s.   Dogs that were abused, neglected, or abandoned are taken from animal shelters and placed in a 12 week long program designed to help them become well-adjusted, housebroken pets with basic command training in order to succeed in their adoptive homes.   The Rock Hounds is sponsored by First Coast No More Homeless Pets (FCNMHP).   The training program we use was designed by Jay Kings Dog Academy.   A lot of hard work and dedication was required from Warden Diane Andrews, Assistant Warden over programs Mr. S.B. Rossiter, and program supervisor Officer Parrish.   Without their belief in and support of this program, it wouldnt exist here.   The dogs we receive have sometimes been,   among other things, tied to a tree and starved, kicked, beaten cruelly, yelled at, had their bones broken, and sometimes afraid, uncertain and untrusting.   Only through loving care, patience, positivereinforcement and attention can they be reached.   In my case, I have been in prison over 26 years.   Others in the program have been in this long or longer, truly hard men.   Yet we still have a well of love and kindness inside us and these dogs bring it out.   We help to save them and in the process, we receive a form of redemption ourselves.   We also reach out to the extended community that is our family and loved ones in society to help find permanent homes for these rehabilitated dogs.   Please spread the word about the ROCK Hounds and if you know anyone who would like to adopt a housebroken, trained truly special dog, please have them contact officer Parrish at the prison. can learn more by talking to Bill Dampier at 352-235-1591. Or if you wish you can call me. My number is in the book. Thank You Malcolm Hill Morgan Road Dear Editor: There are many people in this country who believe that the definition of marriage as one man, one woman, for life should be replaced. Most of them appear to be of the so-called progressive persuasion (those who used to call themselves liberal).Support true marriageUnfortunately, even though in a minority, too many of these individuals are in positions of power and/or influence, such as politicians, mass media types and the wealthy. As a result, it appears that there is a nationwide move to actually change this important definition. Even though believers in such a travesty are not in the majority, its still possible that they can prevail. It wouldnt be the first time that a minority of people took control of a situation. For example, Germany was taken over by the Nazi party, in spite of their small numbers. To insure that these people lose this battle, those who do believe in Gods marriage had better take action. Legislators at all levels need to be contacted; organizations fighting for traditional marriage should be supported; pastors would be wise to urge their congregations to become heavily involved in this fight. And to anyone who encounters someone who spouts all kinds of reasons why we need to change the meaning of marriage, simply ask this question. If marriage is not between one man and one woman for life, what is the definition of marriage? I have yet to hear a cogent answer to this questionfrom anyone. Leonard C.

Brooker Elementary School students warmed up with activities such as running, throwing and dribbling (All photos by Patricia Cook.) Union County High School seniors Austin Dukes and Geordyn Green will continue playing football after graduation, signing letters of intent on March 26 to play at Atlanta Sports Academy, with eyes on getting the chance to move on to Division I schools. Dukes earned first-team allstate honors this past season at linebacker, while Green earned second-team honors at defensive back. The Telegraph-Times-Monitor will publish a more in-depth story on these two student-athletes in next weeks issue. was quite the find for Babnick, who bought him at a farm in Virginia after seeing an advertisement online. I feel like the luckiest kid on the planet with him, Babnick said, adding, He and I are just best friends. That friendship got off to a rocky start. Babnick said the first time she met Yoshi at the Virginia farm, he bit her every time she touched his head. She was sold, though, after riding him. Every single thing she wanted Yoshi to do, he did. He and I just got each other, Babnick said. There was one excitable moment as the two were still forming their bond. They were at a show when something spooked Yoshi, causing him to run out of the arena. Babnick said she couldnt think of what to do to make him slow down and pay attention to her again. What popped into Babnicks mind was to start singing the Beatles Yellow Submarine. I couldnt think of what else to do except to get him listening, Babnick said. Yoshi responded to the song, which is now part of his show routine. As Babnick and Yoshi circle the arena prior to the start of competition, she hums Yellow Submarine. He loves it, Babnick said. Its just been our thing ever since. Horses that are performing well on dressage tests usually range in age from 10 to 14, Babnick said, adding that they retire in their late teens. Yoshi is 21 and was retired from competition when Babnick bought him. However, reentering the arena seems to have given him a new life. Babnick said you can see it in Yoshis eyes every time he exits his trailer. He just marches like a 6-yearold, Babnick said. It takes 10 years off his life every time he goes to a show. Still, Babnick knows Yoshis competition days are numbered. Thats why she treasures every show theyre at. Every rides a gift, Babnick said. I would hope we could get through another season for his sake because he enjoys it so much. Babnick has a younger horse named Junior who could follow in Yoshis footprints. Junior, who is almost 12 and has participated in some shows with Babnick, has fantastic breeding and is a super cool horse, Babnick said. However, he still gets a little nervous entering the arena. Thats why even though Junior achieved some good scores at a show in Atlanta, Babnick is still taking it slow with him. He did wonderfully, Babnick said in regard to Juniors performance in Atlanta. On paper, there wasnt a reason to say, Lets wait and work harder at home, but I could feel it. He did beautifully, but I could just feel it. We rode at night. There was music. There were lights on. You could just feel him (thinking), I dont know if Im really OK. Whether its Junior or another horse, Babnick cannot earn another bronze or silver medal. Earning a particular medal is a one-time achievement, though Babnick said she will still aim medal-qualifying scores for each horse she rides just because its fun. Since it is fun, Babnick has no intentions of quitting dressage any time soon. She said she may be 90 and in a wheelchair one day, but someone will be pushing her up to a mounting block because she cant imagine not being on the back of a horse. Its so good for a persons mind, Babnick said. For my mind, theres nothing else like it.

below. Fitts provided some tips, too, on how to hook soft plastics so that rough action will not wear and tear the plastic where the hooks enters.   Since the detail is too much to address in this article, ask someone who attended the meeting how to use a swivel to prevent soft plastic wear and tear.Outdoors outlookWhen the weather dips into the high 30s during the latter part of March, the spring bass bite is going to be impacted.   Unfortunately that is exactly what happened this week. Not only was the temperature change significant, but also the wind was just as bad. Joey Tyson called some of the regulars of the Bald Eagle tournaments and called off the weekly event, but some will usually miss the message and others will brave the elements anyway. Most of those who challenged the weather on March 26 will admit that it was a wasted effort. The effects of the front should have worn off by March 30, and the bass spawn should resume. By the next full moon, which is on April 30, the best of the bass spawn will be over. Jeff Fitts, at the March 27 Crosshorn Ministries meeting, told us that the post-spawn period for bass marks the beginning of the yearly calendar that will produce the hottest top-water action of the year.   There probably is no more exciting fishing action than a largemouth bass crushing a top-water lure. With the exception of last weeks cold front, the trend toward warmer weather should do nothing but encourage trout and reds to occupy the inshore flats.   Both coasts are providing good reports of strong sheepshead bite.   This time of the year will produce some of the largest samples of the banded fish to be caught all year.   They are typically taken with jigs supplemented with shrimp and fiddler crabs. Spring always brings a host of large fish into the inland waters. Not the least of these will be the king mackerel that will soon be lurking around the coastal waters. What is heating up pretty good right now on the east coast is the black drum bite.   These fish are caught in many of the same locations a sheepshead, but they have a tendency to occupy slightly deeper water.   These are large fish and will easily top 50 pounds.

Much of his initial discussion was related to the different types of fishing lines available and their advantages and disadvantages. Fitts indicated that fluorocarbon line has little give, but is almost invisible under water.   Fluorocarbon will also sink and, consequently, is a more effective line for underwater lures. Conversely, monofilament line provides some stretch and will float. As such, it is a better line to use with top-water lures. Braided line provides much more strength with no additional diameter size, and therefore is much better to use in thick cover. Fitts also talked about flipping and pitching fishing techniques and where and when they are advantageous.   Both techniques are underhanded casts that are used to pinpoint short casts that are usually into thick cover.   Both of the presentations are effective in water that has a heavy growth of hydrilla such as Rowell and Sampson lakes. The thick hydrilla growth typically provides a heavy cover mat at the water surface that attracts a lot of bait, which in turn attracts bass.   Fitts described the types of lures and best rigs that would allow the fisherman to punch through the surface mat and make an effective presentation to the bass that typically hover Fitts talks Crosshorn meeting Jeff Fitts illustrates a hook. Bradford High School pitcher Jackson Reddish gave up one run and struck out nine to help the Tornadoes defeat visiting Keystone Heights 4-1 in a District 5-4A baseball game on March 25.

Her children list as one of their mothers major accomplishments the raising of five children, born within a three-year span, without ever raising her voice. Ann was a woman of quiet strength, great intelligence and fierce determination, who was equally beautiful inside and out. She was a voracious reader, and an accomplished writer and painter. A long-time member of the Audubon Society, she had a deep and abiding love of nature and joyfully passed this love to her children, teaching them to identify and appreciate birds, animals, plants and trees. A Master Gardener, an avid collector of books, art and natures treasures, Ann transformed each place the family moved into a home and yard of beauty; a haven for her family and numerous pets, as well as the wildlife. She loved travel, and after many family vacations to the Bahamas aboard their boat Paganos, she and her husband Phil explored the world together choosing roads less traveled. Their adventures took them to Alaska, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, Morocco, Tibet, China, both the Northern and Southern Spice Routes, and many other places. Both were life-long learners and together they found great joy and deepened respect for world cultures, learning local customs and collecting the fine handiwork of each. Ann was a member of Trinity Episcopal Church where she volunteered at its thrift shop, and was a devoted volunteer for the Melrose Public Library. She is preceded in death by: her beloved husband, Dr. Philip M. Payne, M.D.; her parents, Elbert Ezra and Margaret Ann Wilson; and her brother, Elbert Buster Wilson. Ann is survived by: her children Philip (Cynthia Booth) Payne III and Margaret Maggie (Rick) Blizzard, who both lovingly cared for her in the final years of her life, Oona (Eddie) Lewis, Susan (Carmine) Russo, and Sarah (Clark) Speese. Ann is also survived by seven grandchildren, Ben and Katie Payne; Reid and Kyle Lewis; Drew, Eric and Annie Speese. Donations may be made to the Melrose Public Library, P.O.

BY MARY W. BRIDGMAN Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Members and friends of Beulah Baptist Church, located on S.R. 21 near Keystone Heights, gathered for its annual Heritage Day on March 29. Participants met at the church, then drove to the main gate at Camp Blanding, where they were met by military police and escorted to the old cemetery, more than 5 miles away. Beulah was founded in 1850 when Zachary Taylor was president of the United States. The land that comprises presentday Clay County was then part of Duval County. The church met in a small, log cabin on land owned by Kindred B. Drew. A creek ran nearby, and early members had to ford it to get to services. Later, Drew deeded 2 acres to 12B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 3, 2014 GORTONS PORTSIDECOOKED SHRIMP70-90 CT 10-OZCANTALOUPESMANGOES$599$4992 $3 wed thurs fri sat sun mon tuesPRICES AVAILABLE02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 Open 7 Days a Week 8am to 8pm1371 South Walnut St. (Hwy 301) Starke (904)368-9188 Amazing quality.

Saunders of Penney Farms paid tribute to his parents, who died when he was an infant.the church, which included space for a cemetery. The first person buried there was his 38-year-old wife, Martha Drew, who died in 1865. The old cemetery is maintained by the National Guard, marked as a sensitive site and separated from the outside by a chain-link fence. There are over 100 graves in the cemetery. Grave markers bear the names of families still living in the areaBoree, Harris, Hickey, Sapp, Saunders, Thomas, Weeks and Wilson, among others. The government began using the property around Beulahs original site as the threat of World War II loomed and the land was needed for Camp Blanding. Beulah members, considering it [their] Christian duty to assist [their] nation in this great movement of preparedness, began holding all their meetings at a nearby school. In 1942, the Beulah Cemetery, which is located at Camp Blanding and maintained by the Florida has more than 100 graves. government contracted to pay the church $800 for its property. Eventually, the church was given the plot of land it now occupies on S.R. 21, which also includes a cemetery. Twenty-one people, including two children, braved rainy conditions and muddy roads to make the trek to the cemetery and honor their dead. Jimmy Weeks, tax collector of Clay Country, spoke briefly to those assembled, honoring his mother, Carolyn Weeks, and his sister, Louisa Weeks Padgett, who have kept the tradition going for several generations and hope to continue for many years to come.
