Everyone is welcome. BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Last Friday the City of Lake Butler dedicated a new 55-foot flagpole erected at the loop, where the north end of Lake Avenue ends at the lake, to replace the dying tree that was removed after standing there many years. After Lake Butler Procurement Director Cassa Neta Herndon welcomed the county officials and leaders from the community in attendance and thanked everyone participating in the ceremony, First Christian Church of Lake Butler Senior Minister Art Peterson gave the invocation. Then members of the Union County High School Jazz Band played our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, while UCHS JROTC cadets raised the American flag. After everyone said the Pledge of Allegiance, Lake Butler City Manager Dave Mecusker spoke a few words in dedicating the flag to the community. As we take a day to celebrate the flag that waves majestically in the breeze at our nations capitol, the schools and our homes and our community, lets honor not just the symbol, but for what it represents: freedom, liberty, progress and prosperity, Mecusker began. Mecusker then quoted from the poem I Am the Flag by Ruth Apperson Rous: God grant that I may spend eternity in my land of the free and the home of the brave. That I shall be known as Old Glory, the flag of the United States of America. It is my pleasure to dedicate this flag to our great community, the city of Lake Butler. He gave some background as to why the flagpole replaced the old tree. About four years ago, just going through the city, we had banners for July Fourth, then we wanted to just to bring out the spirit of the city, because its such aI love the city of Lake Butler. People are so warm. People just help each other when the time is needed. We might squabble amongst ourselves, but when something happens, we all pull together and see the life of the community come out. And one day I was driving down Main Street and when I got to the red light I looked down at the lake and I said, You know what, the tree is dying, and what could we replace it with that would really shine the essence of Lake Butler? So I talked to a few people and the idea struck us about having a flag. So we wanted to have a flag tall enough, that when you came through town at 10 oclock at night or in the morning or when it was dark, that when you looked to the right you would see this beautiful flag waving over our lake. And then you could say, like, Go to the red light and take a right, and go to the flag if youre going to the community center or splash park. It will be kind of like a marker. He said people will see it when they visit for football games and other events. The flag can be seen all the way from the lake to the agricultural education building at the high school on Lake Avenue, from State Road 100 to State Road121. It is lighted at night. The flagpole sits in the middle of a compass showing navigational directions. Some in the community are already enjoying the presence of the new flag. It is awesome to see the American Flag from anywhere on the lake! David Stegall commented on the Union County Times Facebook Page. Patti Crosby and Cheryl Elwood agreed, saying the flag is awesome.Lake Butler dedicates new flagpole at the loop BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At the April 14 meeting of the City of Lake Butler Planning and Zoning Board, commissioners approved the beer and wine license for the Family Dollar store located diagonally across from Spires IGA on State Road 100. The store recently began expanding its space. Family Dollar applied for a 2APS license for beer and wine package sales from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation at the end of February. This license is for a facility that wishes to sell both beer and wine for offpremises consumption. After the zoning meeting, the city held its regular monthly commission meeting. There the board voted to name the citys new splash park the LeRoy Stalvey Memorial Park, according to City Manager Dave Mecusker, due to requests he has received to honor the former city commissioner who passed away on Feb. 14 at the age of 83. At last years Oct. 14 of the city commission meeting, the Florida League of Cities honored Stalvey with a resolution for 25 years of elected service and commending him for his unselfish commitment to municipal leadership and government. He is also credited for having an important role in getting the new splash park project started. At a future date a dedication ceremony will be held to officially name the splash park. The board also made a proclamation for National Arbor Day, which is Friday, April 25. It is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for LB approves beer and wine license for Family DollarWill name splash park after Stalvey; applies for Tree City USA status LBMS student recognized by Duke UniversityLake Butler Middle School student Alex Perez received state recognition from Duke University for scoring a 23 on the math section of the ACT. He is invited to the University of North Florida in Jacksonville on May 5 for the State Award Ceremony. In order to qualify for the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP), a student has to be in seventh grade and meet the criteria based on the sixth grade FCAT scores in reading and/ or math.   These students then take the ACT or SAT, which allows them to have greater insight into their abilities and a chance to preview the test they will take during the college admissions process. Eight LBMS seventh graders qualified but not all participated. Perez is currently taking eighth grade math as a seventh grade student and is enrolled in the gifted program that Sherry Barnett teaches. He was also one of three students chosen to attend State Science Fair.UCHS baseball senior Chris Starling the TV20 Scholar Athlete of the WeekOn April 11, Union County High School baseball senior Chris Starling was selected as WCJBs Jeffrey Meldon TV20 Scholar Athlete of the Week.

A failure to study the Bible has led to widespread ignorance of its teachings. Many people may have a Bible in their home but know very little about what it says. This is dangerous. God said, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). To gain knowledge and Gods approval one must study the word of God. Paul told Timothy to, Study to shew thyself approved unto God rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). When we read Gods word, we can learn what God expects of us (Ephesians 3:4). However, many fail to study the Bible for themselves but simply accept what someone else tells them. We must be like the Bereans who searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so (Acts 17:11). If you would like to study your Bible more, we would be glad to have a class with you or have you visit at our services.

I am announcing my candidacy to run for Union County School Board member representing District 3. I am a lifelong resident of Union County, born and raised. I have been married for 31 years to my wonderful wife Regina and we have two amazing daughters, Twyla (Seay) Garber and Valerie Seay. I am also the son of the late Dock and Pearl Seay. My mother was a retired schoolteacher serving Union Countys children to achieve their educational goals. I have worked for the University of Florida for 34 plus years. I have volunteered in our community with sports activities and I was also a past city council member for Worthington Springs. Being an advocate in our childrens education is one of the greatest opportunities in life. But it is also rewarding as we watch our students achieve, succeed and lead happy, productive lives as a result in an environment that I could help to provide as a school board member. I believe in a strong commitment to God, family and community. I am looking forward to the opportunity to run for the office of Union County School Board member District 3 and will appreciate your vote. Thank you for your support. Marvin Seay UCHS seating graduation infoUnion County High School graduation will be held at the football stadium on Friday, May 30, at 8:00 p.m. The gates will open at 6:00 p.m. for public seating in the stands and graduate reserved seating on the track. Each graduating student will receive four reserve-seating tickets for the track. Tickets will be distributed beginning May 27 at the front office of the high school until May 30 at 3:00 p.m. A parent or guardian must sign for the tickets as no student will be allowed to pick up the tickets. Only people with a ticket will be allowed in the reserved seating area and they must keep their ticket with them at all times. If a guest leaves the reserved seating area, they must present the ticket for re-entry. Attendees with reserve tickets should enter at the gated entrance on the south end of the home stands. Guests will have the chance to take pictures after the graduation ceremony. Only the professional photographer will be permitted to walk on the field during the ceremony and will take a photo of each graduate as they walk across the stage. In the event of bad weather, the reserved seating tickets will be used as the alternative plan. Guests will present the tickets at the high school gym rather than the stadium. Only those in possession of the reserve seating graduation tickets will be allowed entry into the gym due to the limited seating. Once admitted, guests will sit in the bleachers and must keep tickets with them at all times. This procedure prevents any delays or postponing of the ceremony. Should you have any questions, please contact the front office at 386-496-3040.

We had to get a good boat driver, somebody who knew what they were doing, somebody who could actually navigate the water proper, Stone said, before adding in practically the same breath, Not to mention shes hot. She aint bad to look at, Roberts agreed. The problem is youve got to beat the boys off the boat. It cuts into your time. In all seriousness, though, Stone said hes never met anyone with a better story to tell than Sims. He said shes by far one of the best people hes ever met and admires the way cystic fibrosis doesnt slow her down. This girl has more heart than anybody Ive ever met in my life, Stone said. Though a newcomer to the Dreadknots team, which has been a part of Ax Men since season six, Sims said she immediately felt right at home. Yeah, from the beginning it was easy for us all to get along, she said. I think the first day that we filmed, Clint and I were joking and laughing about as hard as possible for about 15 minutes. We almost got in trouble with the film crew because we couldnt stop. It was just a natural thing for all of us. We all get along, we all have the same mindset on a lot of things and we all see eye to eye on a lot of things as well. Our personalities are very similar. Stone said one of the best times hes had was just goofing off with Sims on a day in which Roberts had to take his daughter to a school orientation. They spent their time throwing sandwiches back and forth to each other, trying to catch them in their mouths, among other things. We actually wound up paddling the boat backward down the river, Stone said. It was no surprise to Stone that Sims has fit right in. He alluded Keystone Heights High School had four win their weight classes, thus ensuring their spots in the Florida High School Athletic Association Boys Weightlifting Finals, while an additional four lifters from Keystone, Bradford and Union County also earned the right after their performances at the District 4-1A statequalifying meet on April 10 in South Daytona. The winners of each weight class at each of the states qualifying meets earned the right to compete at the state meet, which will be held April 25-26 at the Kissimmee Civic Center. At the District 4 meet, Keystones Dakota Hodge, Lane Blanton, Chase Musselman and Darein Gilio topped their respective classes. Hodge won the 129-pound class with a 405 total (225 bench, 180 clean and jerk), while Blanton had a top total of 485 (240, 245) in the 139 class. Musselman had a 560 total (280, 280) to win the 169 class, while Gilio won the 199 class with a 565 total (300, 265). The totals of the remaining lifters throughout the state who did not place first at district meets were compared to make up the rest of the field at state. Keystones Steven Beverly made the cut after placing second in the 129 class at the District 4 meet. He had a 400 total (210, 190). Bradfords Jarvis DeSue also earned a second-place finish and will move on to state. He compiled a 510 total (275, 235) in the 154 class. Also qualifying for state were Unions Austin Long and Keystones Brandon Johnson. Long placed third in the 129 class at the District 4 meet with a 370 total (205, 165), while Johnson placed fourth in the 154 class with a 500 total (265, 235). Though not qualifying for state, Keystones Dakota Black and Unions Alden McClellon earned top-three places at the District 4 meet. Black was runner-up in the 139 class with a 415 total, while McClellon was third in the 169 class with a 510 total. Unions Dylan Bass placed fourth in the 129 class with a 340 total. Bradfords Markel Parks placed fifth in the heavyweight class with a 675 total. Keystone had two fifth-place finishers: Josh Knight in the 154 class with a 480 total and Nate Pate in the 199 class with a 505 total. Also competing for Keystone were J.J. Schofield in the 169 class with a 435 total, Matt West in the 183 class with a 510 total, Johnnie Fitts in the 183 class with a 500 total and Joe Pace in the 238 class with a 470 total. Bradfords Zach Windle and Dequan Blackshear competed as well, with Windle compiling a 265 total in the 119 class and Blackshear compiling a 440 total in the 154 class.

Being a part of season seven of History Channels Ax Men has given Sims an outlet to talk about the disease she lives with through interviews, public appearances and discussions on her Facebook page. However, if her appearance with her fellow Dreadknots teammates at the Bradford County Fair was any indication, the show has also been a lot of fun to be a part of. Sims, Clint Capt. Clint Roberts and Dave the Kraken Stone exhibited the kind of playful camaraderie that takes years to develop, though Sims completed just her first season as a member of the Dreadknot team. When Sims gives an answer to the Telegraph-Times-Monitor in response to being asked what has been most enjoyable about being on the show, Roberts cut Sims and Ax Men: cuttin up and talkin CFin and said, What she meant to say was, Working with Clint has been the greatest experience of my life. Sims, cracking a smile, added, And, He has the greatest moustache in the world. Stone was asked why someone whos never watched Ax Men should tune it. His response? Because we are awesome as a group. If you want to see what awesome personified is, you turn the channel to 269 on DirecTV on Sunday nights. Not missing a beat, Sims chips in that the word awesome in the dictionary is accompanied by a photo of her, Roberts and Stone. Sims was approached about possibly being on the show at the Suwannee River Jam. (She was the reigning Miss Suwannee River Jam at the time.) I never really wanted to be on TV, Sims said, but when the See SIMS, 8B Katelyn Cuz Sims and her fellow Ax Men Dreadknots, Capt.

What was wonderful about this death, this crucifixion? It was wonderful because sin was judged and my and your sin was paid for.

He passed away later that night. He was a great dog and will be missed. Although we have our Thanks for support during pet tragedythe dedication and skills of so many great coaches, fans, administrators, and players covering many decades. So, I began to ask myself: If there were a Mount Rushmore for BHS Football, which four faces would be on display in a chiseled granite tribute? It is a difficult question to ponder. So many deserve consideration that it would be unfair to narrow it to just four. While I have enjoyed a long relationship with BHS football, I readily admit that my working knowledge is limited in relation to its vast history. There were phenomenal coaches and players prior to the 1960s that could stake a claim to being featured on our Mount Rushmore. Guys like Coach J.C. Hobbs and players such as Jack Hazen enjoy legendary status among those who have extended memories. But, this is my blog so I will limit my picks to those who were part of the landscape from the mid-50s and beyond. The first member of the BHS Rushmore quartet? Coach Lennard Register had the Tornado football program hummin like a well-oiled machine during his tenure (195561). Five consecutive Keystone The following, written by Terry Vaughan as a WEAG Bradford High School Tornado football blog, was submitted for publication by former BHS football coach Lennard Register. As I approach my 29th year as voice of Tornado football on Eagle Country 106.3, I often find myself waxing nostalgic with memories of those who built the Tornado program brick-bybrick, stone-by-stone. Our rich history was crafted through Dear Editor: This legislative session initially was being billed as the Year of Water, aiming to strengthen state protection of Floridas 700plus natural springs.   Instead, it appears the legislatures annual embarrassing and inadequate environmental performance is right on track. Speaker of the House Will Weatherford is blocking badly needed legislation, kicking the can down the road for another year, claiming that his successor, Rep. Steve Crisafulli, (R Merritt Island), has more expertise on the issue.   More troubling, Weatherford doesnt even want to consider the Senate Springs Protection Bill, claiming disingenuously that the House has its own legislation, when in fact it has nothing   at all like the excellent and comprehensive Senate Plan. Normally, in an election year, Legislatures Year of Water not living up to namethe legislatures mantra is to do no harm.   Weatherfords doing nothing; calling for another study and refusing to consider legislation, when the reasons and solution to our water woes have long been well known and scientifically demonstrated, is damaging and irresponsible; being harmful to Floridas economy, quality of life and our endangered water resources while protecting special interests and campaign contributors.   Terry Brant, Legislative Chairman Santa Fe Lake Dwellers Association Melrose Conference Crowns and a 32 game winning streak were among the highlights of a great run. It is unfortunate that the State did not have a championship playoff system back then, as Bradford would have likely filled a trophy case with even more treasured hardware under Coach Register. To the right of Coach Register would be the face of the Coach who replaced him in Starke. David Hurse was the loyal Lieutenant under Coach R, and was ready to grab the wheel when it was his turn to guide the ship. Thirty years later, his bag of accomplishments was full-to include two State Championship Crowns and one runner-up designation. Coach Hurses long tenure and lasting success made him the face of Bradford Football-and this is why it should be prominently displayed on the Mount-as is his name on the stadium. My next selection? Assistant Coaches rarely get enough credit for a programs success and sustainability. While David Hurse was the unquestioned top dog while at BHS, there is no doubt that his long-time Assistant was the guy who put the teeth in an always ferocious Tornado Defense. Mike Sextons Defenses were typically undersized-but still struck fear in the hearts of opposing coaches. Mikes emphasis on fundamentals and toughness earned the respect of all who played for or against him-and this state may have never produced a better High School Defensive Coordinator. Who gets the final spot? Larry Browns impact on Bradford Football reverberated well beyond the field. Larry was among the first to break the color barrier at BHS during a difficult time in our countrys history-and he wore the Scarlet and Gray uniform in a proud and dignified way. He later matriculated to the University of Kansas under Pepper Rogers where he was teammates with pro football greats such as John Riggins and Bobby Douglass. A 5th round draft pick of the Pittsburg Steelers/Larry finished his pro career with four Super Bowl rings and All-Pro status. He excelled at both Tight End and Offensive Tackle for the Steelers. Register....Hurse.....Sexton.... Brown. Four faces that certainly deserve to be featured on Bradford Footballs Mount Rushmore. They are four-of-akind in that their contributions to the program then and now remain rock solid.Who would be on BHS footballs Mt. Rushmore?suspicions and have filed a police report, it is very unlikely the culprit will be discovered unless they admit to it. We would like to thank most of our nearby neighbors for their help and support that day and the day after.   We are firm believers in karma and we know that God sees all.

Thursday, April 17, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 5B I am a Senior this year and this was my last time showing at the Bradford County Fair. I have exhibited Swine for the last 10 years. In these years I have accomplished and reached goals from winning Showmanship to winning Grand Champion, to earning my State FFA Degree as a Junior. It is now time that I leave and let someone else take my place and I hope that the community supports him/her as they have supported me. I owe a SPECIAL THANKS to my producer; Mike, Beth, and Bud Williams, of Williams Show Pigs. During these years, I was mentored and given the knowledge and skills which enabled me to select quality show pigs, along with the many aspects of having a swine farm. I was given the knowledge to start my own herd as well as breed my gilt by A-Iing. Ive raised a litter of pigs, fitting them to be exhibited, and they were shown and sold in Indiana. The expertise I gained from the Williams helped me place First in FFA Swine Proficiency for the State of Florida, earning me a trip to the FFA National Convention in Louisville, KY and allowed me to compete Nationally. I won Gold at the National level, which placed me in the top six in the nation.. THANK YOU, Mr. Mike, Mrs. Beth, and Mr. Bud for the love, friendship, knowledge, guidance, and support you all have given me. I hope someone takes my place and accomplishes as much or more than I have through all the help you all are willing to offer. I would like to thank my many buyers, many who have supported me from my first show to my last; Williams Show Pigs, Rays Metal Works, First Coast Florida Recovery, A&M Recovery, Stricks Properties, Crossfire Electric, Pipeline Contractors, Malcolm & Edith Hill, WW Gay, North Florida Truck and Tractor Repair, Wynns Farms, Kim Griffis, NaNa, Paw Paw, Vaunda & Bill Blankenship, Vystar Credit Union, GC&G, JFC Services, Prestige Electric, Mosley Tire, Revels Fast Lube, Matt Bryant, Bradford Salvage, and Gainesville Restoration.

The pan fish are in the process of swapping locations.   The specks have fewer numbers in the shallow water, but those that are caught appear larger, according to Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle. As the water warms, they will be seeking their preferred cooler water in deeper areas. As they move outward, When Lamar Williams was asked if he knew any local hunter who had scored a wild turkey grand slam, he said, Go see Tommy Harper. Hes a great turkey hunter and loves to travel and hunt. Im sure he has. Well, it turns out that Harper has scored a grand slam 11 times, meaning that he has bagged Eastern, Osceola, Merriam and Rio sub-species of wild turkeys 11 different times.   That does not mean that he has only taken 11 of each, because he and his hunting group have already harvested 11 local turkeys this year. One of Harpers major hunting goals is to travel to Mexico and take a Gould turkey.   That achievement would give him the right to claim credit for a royal slam. When asked what his favorite turkey is, he said, Probably the Merriam because they are so pretty.   The amount of white color distribution on their wings and tail make them a beautiful bird. Union County High Schools Kristen Cook and Nancy Slocum qualified for regional competition with their fourthplace performances at the District 5-2A track and field meet, which was held April 10 in Gainesville. The top four finishers in each event earned the right to move on to the April 16 Region 2 meet at First Academy in Orlando. Cook will advance in the shot put after a fourth-place distance of 31-3.75, earning the last regional berth ahead of Fort Whites Rykia Jackson, who had a distance of 30-5. Slocums time of 28.03 in the 200m earned the last regional berth ahead of Palatkas Kari Rasher, who had a time of 28.14. Cook just missed out on qualifying in the discus with a fifth-place throw of 89-3. Keaaris Ardley won the highjump championship, while fellow Bradford High School teammates helped the Tornadoes qualify for regionals in five other events at the District 5-2A track and field meet on April 10 in Gainesville. Ardley cleared 6-2 in the high jump, which was 6 inches better than runner-up William Barlow of Palatka. The top four finishers in each event qualified for the April 16 Region 2 meet at Orlandos First Academy. Bradfords Kenny Dinkins was the district runner-up in the 400m with a time of 49.63, which placed him behind champion Kaven Berry of Palatka, who had a time of 49.07. The boys 4x400m relay team of Ardley, Dinkins, Chris Barron and Brenton Ruise placed third with a time of 3:38.80. Diontre Jonas placed third in the 200m with a time of 22.59 and fourth in the 100m with a time of 11.03. Sarah Frederick earned the lone regional berth for Bradford on the girls side, placing fourth in the 1600m with a time of 6:21.72. Frederick just missed qualifying in the 3200m, placing fifth with a time of 15:49.62. Dinkins and Barron also earned fifth-place finishes Dinkins in the 200m with a time of 22.80 and Barron in the 400m with a time of 52.97. The boys 4x800m relay team of Kristopher Padgett, Taylor Sanders, Robert Martin and Tyler Oliver placed sixth with a time of 10:31.39. Ardley placed seventh in the long jump (18-10), while Alec Harden was seventh in the to her background, having grown up around logging because of her father, David. She knows what shes doing, Stone said. She can run a chainsaw. She can run a knuckleboom (crane). Shes 100 percent the real deal. Though Sims hit it right off with her fellow Dreadknots, it took a little longer to get used to being surrounded by a television crew. When you first start filming, you kind of have to work around everybody on the film crew and everybody on the boat, Sims said, but then a couple of weeks into it, its just like you push them out of your way, or they will get out of your way. Sims described the experience of seeing herself on TV for the first time awkward. Roberts said its one of those strange moments along with someone who youve never met before excited about the chance to meet you. Those are all the surreal moments, Roberts said. The same can be said for seeing yourself doing something on camera that you dont remember doing. Ive got a line about the Titanic that I have no recollection of saying whatsoever, Roberts said. I said it, and it was great, but I dont remember saying it. You could forgive any of the Dreadknots for forgetting something they said or did. Stone said six hours of aired footage has been culled from approximately 1,400 hours of video. Its crazy to actually see what they used, what they didnt use, what they shouldve used and what we wished they wouldve used, Stone said. There is lots of hilarious footage that TV viewers never get to see, Roberts said. Like the Slip N Slide, which Roberts described as awesome. It was a Slip N Slide that went from the hotel to the ocean, lets just put it that way, Stone said. Since joining the show for its seventh season, Sims has proven to be quite popular. Her Facebook page has approximately 8,000 followers. Thats no surprise to Roberts, who joked that Sims was bound to become popular hanging out with him and Stone. Awesome begets awesome, Roberts said. Sims quickly added, When youve got three awesome things happening at one time, youve got greatness. Thats what weve gotgreatness. Roberts said hes glad to see how popular Sims has become. I told Katelyn when she came on that I hoped she took off and that this was the springboard to something great for her. The popularity, the clowning around, the Slip N Slidesits all good, but what Sims enjoys the most is using Ax Men and her Facebook site to talk about cystic fibrosis. Reading encouraging messages from people or being able to enlighten people about cystic fibrosis tops being a TV celebrity. I feel like Im making people aware of (cystic fibrosis), Sims said. Theyll always send a message, Hey, I heard you have this, or, I Googled your name, and I saw this CF thing about you. They ask questions about it. When they ask questions, youre obviously educating them about it, which is an awesome feeling, knowing that youre telling them something they didnt know before. The more people are educated about cystic fibrosis, the quicker the disease can be eliminated, Roberts said. He and Stone are willing to help Sims do whatever it takes to bring about that reality. Anything that can possibly be done, you sign us up, were there, Stone said. The people of Bradford County have greatly supported her in her fundraising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, said Sims, whose efforts helped create an annual Great Strides fundraising walk. Making an appearance at the Bradford County Fair and bringing Roberts and Stone along with her is just a small way of saying thanks, she said. It may not be much, but its a little bit to give back, Sims said. Sims said she would definitely consider other TV opportunities in the future so that she can continue in her efforts to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis. For now, though, she sounds happy to be a part of Ax Men as long as the show will have her. Its just something that you go and do every day just like any other job, Sims said. Its the same routine every day. Its normal to me. Well, as normal as spending time with Capt. Clint and the Kraken can be. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 17, 2014 THE BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH Since 1879 Thank YouHeather, Joan & Lindafor aGreat Job!

April 11 in the BHS media center. I was jumping up and down on the couch, Parks said, describing his reaction to Tabors offer. Tabor, as a private, Christian college, offers more than just the chance to play at the next level. I like the values this school offers, Parks said. Its a heavy Christian school. Thats what I really like about it. Prior to high school, Parks had never played football, but he said he decided to give it a try since all his friends in ninth grade were playing. At first, I hated it, Parks said, noting that he particularly didnt enjoy the practices in the Florida heat. However, the more he played, the more the sport grew on him. I started to love it, he said. Bradford head coach Steve Reynolds said the Parks best attributes are his size and strength. Hes a huge person thats difficult to move around, Reynolds said. Plus, as someone who didnt begin playing until his freshman year, he has a lot of upside. We think he has a lot of raw talent to offer, Reynolds said. Reynolds said Parks made huge strides his junior season and proved versatile this past season, moving into the noseguard position after the graduation of Phillip James. He did a great job with that, Reynolds said. When asked to describe how he thinks hell feel when he steps onto the field for the first time as a Tabor player, Parks said, Ill probably feel how I felt my freshman year (at BHS) when I stepped on the field. (Ill have) butterflies. Initial nerves aside, theres no reason to think that Parks game wont continue to develop. If he gets there early, applies himself throughout the summer and learns the system, I dont see why he cant get on the field next year, Reynolds said. I think hes got a bright future ahead of him. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer He didnt like football when he first began playing in ninth grade, but Bradford High School senior Markel Parks eventually fell in love with the sport. Now, hes got the chance to extend his playing days, signing a letter of intent to play at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan. Parks, a defensive lineman, received an offer from the school in the mail not long before signing his official paperwork during a signing ceremony on Bradfords Parks signs to play football at Tabor Collegeof the programs first signees. Its just exciting to be with a new program because youre going to be the first team to actually set the tone for the next couple of years, Collins, a second baseman/shortstop, said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School middle infielder Wyatt Collins will be part of building a new baseball program after signing a letter of intent to play at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville. Its just exciting to put all my work toward baseball, and now its finally paying off, Collins said after an April 11 signing ceremony in the BHS media center. Im just glad I get to play baseball at the collegiate level. Trinity announced earlier this year it was adding baseball to its athletic program.

working with her and taking (her game) to the next level, White said. Skinner said she hopes she can get the chance to play elsewhere following two years at St. Petersburg. Jolley has no doubts about that happening. I really dont think shell go just two years, Jolley said. I think once those two years are up, shell keep going. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was perhaps a late start compared to many college-bound athletes, but Keystone Heights High School senior Keerston Skinner turned just four years of volleyball into an opportunity at the next level, courtesy of St. Petersburg College. Skinner admitted that she never thought shed have the opportunity to play at the collegiate level. Im excited, she said, following an April 7 signing ceremony in the KHHS media center. Im thankful that (St. Petersburg coach Scott White) signed me. The front-row player had never played the sport prior to her freshman year and cant really say why she wanted to start playing. Honestly, I dont know, Skinner said. I really dont. I saw it one day, and I was like, Thats what I want to do. Once she began playing, she totally immersed herself into the sport. She eats, sleeps and breathes volleyball, Keystone head coach Nikki Jolley said. Im not kidding. She loves it. During her senior season, Skinner had matches where she recorded 10 and 11 kills against bigger schools Ridgeview and Palatka. She also had a 13-kill, six service-ace performance in a win over Fort White late in the season and tallied 13 kills in a loss to Santa Fe in the semifinals of the District 5-4A tournament. Now, Skinner gets to see what she can do beyond high school, an opportunity Jolley described as amazing. She is a wonderful person all the way around, Jolley said. No one deserves it more than her. St. Petersburg coach Scott White said Skinner as a big, strong kid hes eager to have as a part of his team.

Hes a high-character kid, Martinez said. Thats really what were aiming for. The baseball part of it will take care of itself. Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan said Collins has put in the effort necessary to be successful. Now, that effort has led to an opportunity to play after high school. Its good when a kid sets a goal, works toward that goal and then you see him accomplish that, Duncan said. Hes a good kid.

Hes fast enough to play in the outfield, but when it comes to Collins play in the infield, Duncan said, He reads the ball good off the bat. He usually positions himself to catch a good ball instead of letting the ball play him. Hes got good, fundamental footwork. Hes accurate on his throws. Hes as good as has been here in a while. Duncan said Collins should thrive after taking part in Trinity Baptists conditioning program designed for baseball players only. I think hell be fine, Duncan said. Hes a hard worker. Whatever is asked of him, he does, and he usually goes beyond that. Collins cant wait to step onto the field for the first time as a Trinity Baptist player. I think its going to be a really nervous and amazing feeling, he said.

BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Last Friday the City of Lake Butler dedicated a new 55-foot flagpole erected at the loop, where the north end of Lake Avenue ends at the lake, to replace the dying tree that was removed after standing there many years. After Lake Butler Procurement Director Cassa Neta Herndon welcomed the county officials and leaders from the community in attendance and thanked everyone participating in the ceremony, First Christian Church of Lake Butler Senior Minister Art Peterson gave the invocation. Then members of the Union County High School Jazz Band played our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, while UCHS JROTC cadets raised the American flag. After everyone said the Pledge of Allegiance, Lake Butler City Manager Dave Mecusker spoke a few words in dedicating the flag to the community. As we take a day to celebrate the flag that waves majestically in the breeze at our nations capitol, the schools and our homes and our community, lets honor not just the symbol, but for what it represents: freedom, liberty, progress and prosperity, Mecusker began. Mecusker then quoted from the poem I Am the Flag by Ruth Apperson Rous: God grant that I may spend eternity in my land of the free and the home of the brave. That I shall be known as Old Glory, the flag of the United States of America. It is my pleasure to dedicate this flag to our great community, the city of Lake Butler. He gave some background as to why the flagpole replaced the old tree. About four years ago, just going through the city, we had banners for July Fourth, then we wanted to just to bring out the spirit of the city, because its such aI love the city of Lake Butler. People are so warm. People just help each other when the time is needed. We might squabble amongst ourselves, but when something happens, we all pull together and see the life of the community come out. And one day I was driving down Main Street and when I got to the red light I looked down at the lake and I said, You know what, the tree is dying, and what could we replace it with that would really shine the essence of Lake Butler? So I talked to a few people and the idea struck us about having a flag. So we wanted to have a flag tall enough, that when you came through town at 10 oclock at night or in the morning or when it was dark, that when you looked to the right you would see this beautiful flag waving over our lake. And then you could say, like, Go to the red light and take a right, and go to the flag if youre going to the community center or splash park. It will be kind of like a marker. He said people will see it when they visit for football games and other events. The flag can be seen all the way from the lake to the agricultural education building at the high school on Lake Avenue, from State Road 100 to State Road121. It is lighted at night. The flagpole sits in the middle of a compass showing navigational directions. Some in the community are already enjoying the presence of the new flag. It is awesome to see the American Flag from anywhere on the lake! David Stegall commented on the Union County Times Facebook Page. Patti Crosby and Cheryl Elwood agreed, saying the flag is awesome. Lake Butler dedicates new flagpole at the loop BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At the April 14 meeting of the City of Lake Butler Planning and Zoning Board, commissioners approved the beer and wine license for the Family Dollar store located diagonally across from Spires IGA on State Road 100. The store recently began expanding its space. Family Dollar applied for a 2APS license for beer and wine package sales from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation at the end of February. This license is for a facility that wishes to sell both beer and wine for offpremises consumption. After the zoning meeting, the city held its regular monthly commission meeting. There the board voted to name the citys new splash park the LeRoy Stalvey Memorial Park, according to City Manager Dave Mecusker, due to requests he has received to honor the former city commissioner who passed away on Feb. 14 at the age of 83. At last years Oct. 14 of the city commission meeting, the Florida League of Cities honored Stalvey with a resolution for 25 years of elected service and commending him for his unselfish commitment to municipal leadership and government. He is also credited for having an important role in getting the new splash park project started. At a future date a dedication ceremony will be held to officially name the splash park. The board also made a proclamation for National Arbor Day, which is Friday, April 25. It is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for LB approves beer and wine license for Family Dollar Will name splash park after Stalvey; applies for Tree City USA status LBMS student recognized by Duke University Lake Butler Middle School student Alex Perez received state recognition from Duke University for scoring a 23 on the math section of the ACT. He is invited to the University of North Florida in Jacksonville on May 5 for the State Award Ceremony. In order to qualify for the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP), a student has to be in seventh grade and meet the criteria based on the sixth grade FCAT scores in reading and/ or math. These students then take the ACT or SAT, which allows them to have greater insight into their abilities and a chance to preview the test they will take during the college admissions process. Eight LBMS seventh graders qualified but not all participated. Perez is currently taking eighth grade math as a seventh grade student and is enrolled in the gifted program that Sherry Barnett teaches. He was also one of three students chosen to attend State Science Fair. UCHS baseball senior Chris Starling the TV20 Scholar Athlete of the Week On April 11, Union County High School baseball senior Chris Starling was selected as WCJBs Jeffrey Meldon TV20 Scholar Athlete of the Week. Coach Brian Tomlinson told the reporter, When things are, you know, not going the way they it needs to be, hell try to rally them together and bring them together and lift them up a little bit.

A failure to study the Bible has led to widespread ignorance of its teachings. Many people may have a Bible in their home but know very little about what it says. This is dangerous. God said, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). To gain knowledge and Gods approval one must study the word of God. Paul told Timothy to, Study to shew thyself approved unto God rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). When we read Gods word, we can learn what God expects of us (Ephesians 3:4). However, many fail to study the Bible for themselves but simply accept what someone else tells them. We must be like the Bereans who searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so (Acts 17:11). If you would like to study your Bible more, we would be glad to have a class with you or have you visit at our services.

I am announcing my candidacy to run for Union County School Board member representing District 3. I am a lifelong resident of Union County, born and raised. I have been married for 31 years to my wonderful wife Regina and we have two amazing daughters, Twyla (Seay) Garber and Valerie Seay. I am also the son of the late Dock and Pearl Seay. My mother was a retired schoolteacher serving Union Countys children to achieve their educational goals. I have worked for the University of Florida for 34 plus years. I have volunteered in our community with sports activities and I was also a past city council member for Worthington Springs. Being an advocate in our childrens education is one of the greatest opportunities in life. But it is also rewarding as we watch our students achieve, succeed and lead happy, productive lives as a result in an environment that I could help to provide as a school board member. I believe in a strong commitment to God, family and community. I am looking forward to the opportunity to run for the office of Union County School Board member District 3 and will appreciate your vote. Thank you for your support. Marvin Seay UCHS seating graduation info Union County High School graduation will be held at the football stadium on Friday, May 30, at 8:00 p.m. The gates will open at 6:00 p.m. for public seating in the stands and graduate reserved seating on the track. Each graduating student will receive four reserve-seating tickets for the track. Tickets will be distributed beginning May 27 at the front office of the high school until May 30 at 3:00 p.m. A parent or guardian must sign for the tickets as no student will be allowed to pick up the tickets. Only people with a ticket will be allowed in the reserved seating area and they must keep their ticket with them at all times. If a guest leaves the reserved seating area, they must present the ticket for re-entry. Attendees with reserve tickets should enter at the gated entrance on the south end of the home stands. Guests will have the chance to take pictures after the graduation ceremony. Only the professional photographer will be permitted to walk on the field during the ceremony and will take a photo of each graduate as they walk across the stage. In the event of bad weather, the reserved seating tickets will be used as the alternative plan. Guests will present the tickets at the high school gym rather than the stadium. Only those in possession of the reserve seating graduation tickets will be allowed entry into the gym due to the limited seating. Once admitted, guests will sit in the bleachers and must keep tickets with them at all times. This procedure prevents any delays or postponing of the ceremony. Should you have any questions, please contact the front office at 386-496-3040. DOC 30 graduate from Basic Recruit Training Officers will work at three area institutions A total of 30 recruits from three area institutions successfully completed Correctional Officer Basic Recruit Training (BRT) and were recognized in a graduation ceremony on March 20. Since Union Correctional Institution is still training staff members to help run the new work camp, the majority of the recruits were from that institution. The recruits are: Union Correctional Insti tution: Marcus Ardley, Todd Bazemore, Christopher Breed ing, James Cartwright, Michael Cornwall, Arthur Debose, Alec Finley, Kenneth Gorman, Kee gan Gray, Joshua Griffis, Alexan der Jolliff, Wayne Jones, Teretha Lewis, Tamara Martin, Dustin McElhenny, William Nobles, Joshua Norman, Jill Osborne, Stephen Osborne, Paul Rivera, Giavonni Sanguinetti, Joshua Tyson, Shawna Wainwright and Shanan Weeks. Reception and Medical Cen ter: Amber Appling, Michael Cairel, Joshua Ely-Carter and Donnie Orman. Baker Correctional Institu tion: William Moody and Sol Williams. Three recruits earned special awards for excelling in various aspects of the 11-week training programwhich incorporated both classroom learning and physical demonstration of the skills being taught. All three awards went to UCI graduates. Norman earned the Top Gun Award by turning in the top scores on the range during firearms training each week. Gray earned the Top Defensive Tactics Award for consistently giving an excellent performance in demonstrating the tactics being taught in the training. Gorman earned the Top Academic Award by scoring above 98 percent on all the numerous tests the recruits had to pass during training. Stephen Osborne was chosen as class president and spoke briefly to his fellow graduates at the ceremony. Jolliff was the class vice-president and also took part in the ceremony. UCIs Col. Kevin Box acted as keynote speaker for the ceremony and congratulated the graduates on their achievement. Box urged the recruits to know the values stated in the Department of Corrections strategic plan and adopt them as their own. Trust, respect, accountability, integrity and leadership (TRAIL) are the cornerstone values upon which DOC expects to build. Box urged the recruits to apply these values to both their professional and personal lives in order to be successful. Following the ceremony, the recruits enjoyed a variety of refreshments and enjoyed time with their families.

opportunity was there, I looked at it as a way to spread awareness and get the word about CF out. Stone said adding Sims to the Dreadknots had to be done. We had to get a good boat driver, somebody who knew what they were doing, somebody who could actually navigate the water proper, Stone said, before adding in practically the same breath, Not to mention shes hot. She aint bad to look at, Roberts agreed. The problem is youve got to beat the boys off the boat. It cuts into your time. In all seriousness, though, Stone said hes never met anyone with a better story to tell than Sims. He said shes by far one of the best people hes ever met and admires the way cystic fibrosis doesnt slow her down. This girl has more heart than anybody Ive ever met in my life, Stone said. Though a newcomer to the Dreadknots team, which has been a part of Ax Men since season six, Sims said she immediately felt right at home. Yeah, from the beginning it was easy for us all to get along, she said. I think the first day that we filmed, Clint and I were joking and laughing about as hard as possible for about 15 minutes. We almost got in trouble with the film crew because we couldnt stop. It was just a natural thing for all of us. We all get along, we all have the same mindset on a lot of things and we all see eye to eye on a lot of things as well. Our personalities are very similar. Stone said one of the best times hes had was just goofing off with Sims on a day in which Roberts had to take his daughter to a school orientation. They spent their time throwing sandwiches back and forth to each other, trying to catch them in their mouths, among other things. We actually wound up paddling the boat backward down the river, Stone said. It was no surprise to Stone that Sims has fit right in. He alluded Keystone Heights High School had four win their weight classes, thus ensuring their spots in the Florida High School Athletic Association Boys Weightlifting Finals, while an additional four lifters from Keystone, Bradford and Union County also earned the right after their performances at the District 4-1A statequalifying meet on April 10 in South Daytona. The winners of each weight class at each of the states qualifying meets earned the right to compete at the state meet, which will be held April 25-26 at the Kissimmee Civic Center. At the District 4 meet, Keystones Dakota Hodge, Lane Blanton, Chase Musselman and Darein Gilio topped their respective classes. Hodge won the 129-pound class with a 405 total (225 bench, 180 clean and jerk), while Blanton had a top total of 485 (240, 245) in the 139 class. Musselman had a 560 total (280, 280) to win the 169 class, while Gilio won the 199 class with a 565 total (300, 265). The totals of the remaining lifters throughout the state who did not place first at district meets were compared to make up the rest of the field at state. Keystones Steven Beverly made the cut after placing second in the 129 class at the District 4 meet. He had a 400 total (210, 190). Bradfords Jarvis DeSue also earned a second-place finish and will move on to state. He compiled a 510 total (275, 235) in the 154 class. Also qualifying for state were Unions Austin Long and Keystones Brandon Johnson. Long placed third in the 129 class at the District 4 meet with a 370 total (205, 165), while Johnson placed fourth in the 154 class with a 500 total (265, 235). Though not qualifying for state, Keystones Dakota Black and Unions Alden McClellon earned top-three places at the District 4 meet. Black was runner-up in the 139 class with a 415 total, while McClellon was third in the 169 class with a 510 total. Unions Dylan Bass placed fourth in the 129 class with a 340 total. Bradfords Markel Parks placed fifth in the heavyweight class with a 675 total. Keystone had two fifth-place finishers: Josh Knight in the 154 class with a 480 total and Nate Pate in the 199 class with a 505 total. Also competing for Keystone were J.J. Schofield in the 169 class with a 435 total, Matt West in the 183 class with a 510 total, Johnnie Fitts in the 183 class with a 500 total and Joe Pace in the 238 class with a 470 total. Bradfords Zach Windle and Dequan Blackshear competed as well, with Windle compiling a 265 total in the 119 class and Blackshear compiling a 440 total in the 154 class.

Being a part of season seven of History Channels Ax Men has given Sims an outlet to talk about the disease she lives with through interviews, public appearances and discussions on her Facebook page. However, if her appearance with her fellow Dreadknots teammates at the Bradford County Fair was any indication, the show has also been a lot of fun to be a part of. Sims, Clint Capt. Clint Roberts and Dave the Kraken Stone exhibited the kind of playful camaraderie that takes years to develop, though Sims completed just her first season as a member of the Dreadknot team. When Sims gives an answer to the Telegraph-Times-Monitor in response to being asked what has been most enjoyable about being on the show, Roberts cut Sims and Ax Men: cuttin up and talkin CF in and said, What she meant to say was, Working with Clint has been the greatest experience of my life. Sims, cracking a smile, added, And, He has the greatest moustache in the world. Stone was asked why someone whos never watched Ax Men should tune it. His response? Because we are awesome as a group. If you want to see what awesome personified is, you turn the channel to 269 on DirecTV on Sunday nights. Not missing a beat, Sims chips in that the word awesome in the dictionary is accompanied by a photo of her, Roberts and Stone. Sims was approached about possibly being on the show at the Suwannee River Jam. (She was the reigning Miss Suwannee River Jam at the time.) I never really wanted to be on TV, Sims said, but when the See SIMS, 8B Katelyn Cuz Sims and her fellow Ax Men Dreadknots, Capt. Clint and the Kraken, were at the fair on March 14, signing autographs and posing for pictures.

A week of praise but a week of accusation and finally the trial and the sentence of death. Not any ordinary death, but a crucifixion. The great song contemplates The Wonderful Cross. What was wonderful about this death, this crucifixion? It was wonderful because sin was judged and my and your sin was paid for. But if this week ended at the cross it would be a sad and incomplete conclusion. Yes three days later death couldnt keep its hold on Jesus. You see on Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. This is Easter and this week is Gods greatest expression of His love for you and me. Have you trusted Him? What love, and because of this love, we can say Because He lives I can face tomorrow.

He passed away later that night. He was a great dog and will be missed. Although we have our Thanks for support during pet tragedy the dedication and skills of so many great coaches, fans, administrators, and players covering many decades. So, I began to ask myself: If there were a Mount Rushmore for BHS Football, which four faces would be on display in a chiseled granite tribute? It is a difficult question to ponder. So many deserve consideration that it would be unfair to narrow it to just four. While I have enjoyed a long relationship with BHS football, I readily admit that my working knowledge is limited in relation to its vast history. There were phenomenal coaches and players prior to the 1960s that could stake a claim to being featured on our Mount Rushmore. Guys like Coach J.C. Hobbs and players such as Jack Hazen enjoy legendary status among those who have extended memories. But, this is my blog so I will limit my picks to those who were part of the landscape from the mid-50s and beyond. The first member of the BHS Rushmore quartet? Coach Lennard Register had the Tornado football program hummin like a well-oiled machine during his tenure (195561). Five consecutive Keystone The following, written by Terry Vaughan as a WEAG Bradford High School Tornado football blog, was submitted for publication by former BHS football coach Lennard Register. As I approach my 29th year as voice of Tornado football on Eagle Country 106.3, I often find myself waxing nostalgic with memories of those who built the Tornado program brick-bybrick, stone-by-stone. Our rich history was crafted through Dear Editor: This legislative session initially was being billed as the Year of Water, aiming to strengthen state protection of Floridas 700plus natural springs. Instead, it appears the legislatures annual embarrassing and inadequate environmental performance is right on track. Speaker of the House Will Weatherford is blocking badly needed legislation, kicking the can down the road for another year, claiming that his successor, Rep. Steve Crisafulli, (R Merritt Island), has more expertise on the issue. More troubling, Weatherford doesnt even want to consider the Senate Springs Protection Bill, claiming disingenuously that the House has its own legislation, when in fact it has nothing at all like the excellent and comprehensive Senate Plan. Normally, in an election year, Legislatures Year of Water not living up to name the legislatures mantra is to do no harm. Weatherfords doing nothing; calling for another study and refusing to consider legislation, when the reasons and solution to our water woes have long been well known and scientifically demonstrated, is damaging and irresponsible; being harmful to Floridas economy, quality of life and our endangered water resources while protecting special interests and campaign contributors. Terry Brant, Legislative Chairman Santa Fe Lake Dwellers Association Melrose Conference Crowns and a 32 game winning streak were among the highlights of a great run. It is unfortunate that the State did not have a championship playoff system back then, as Bradford would have likely filled a trophy case with even more treasured hardware under Coach Register. To the right of Coach Register would be the face of the Coach who replaced him in Starke. David Hurse was the loyal Lieutenant under Coach R, and was ready to grab the wheel when it was his turn to guide the ship. Thirty years later, his bag of accomplishments was full-to include two State Championship Crowns and one runner-up designation. Coach Hurses long tenure and lasting success made him the face of Bradford Football-and this is why it should be prominently displayed on the Mount-as is his name on the stadium. My next selection? Assistant Coaches rarely get enough credit for a programs success and sustainability. While David Hurse was the unquestioned top dog while at BHS, there is no doubt that his long-time Assistant was the guy who put the teeth in an always ferocious Tornado Defense. Mike Sextons Defenses were typically undersized-but still struck fear in the hearts of opposing coaches. Mikes emphasis on fundamentals and toughness earned the respect of all who played for or against him-and this state may have never produced a better High School Defensive Coordinator. Who gets the final spot? Larry Browns impact on Bradford Football reverberated well beyond the field. Larry was among the first to break the color barrier at BHS during a difficult time in our countrys history-and he wore the Scarlet and Gray uniform in a proud and dignified way. He later matriculated to the University of Kansas under Pepper Rogers where he was teammates with pro football greats such as John Riggins and Bobby Douglass. A 5th round draft pick of the Pittsburg Steelers/Larry finished his pro career with four Super Bowl rings and All-Pro status. He excelled at both Tight End and Offensive Tackle for the Steelers. Register....Hurse.....Sexton.... Brown. Four faces that certainly deserve to be featured on Bradford Footballs Mount Rushmore. They are four-of-akind in that their contributions to the program then and now remain rock solid. Who would be on BHS footballs Mt. Rushmore? suspicions and have filed a police report, it is very unlikely the culprit will be discovered unless they admit to it. We would like to thank most of our nearby neighbors for their help and support that day and the day after. We are firm believers in karma and we know that God sees all.

being taken out of local lakes, but their days are limited. Kingsley has given up the largest ones this season, but Mike Clemmons has done his best to keep Sampson/Rowell well represented. Within the last few weeks he has landed one 8-plus-pound and one 9-pluspound bedding female out of the dual-lake area. We also previously published a photograph of Kaylee Fowler and a bass of approximately 10 pounds. Subsequent to that catch, relatives from GeorgiaPete Mangham and Tommy Fowler caught similar bass in the same private lake. The pan fish are in the process of swapping locations. The specks have fewer numbers in the shallow water, but those that are caught appear larger, according to Joey Tyson of Bald Eagle Bait and Tackle. As the water warms, they will be seeking their preferred cooler water in deeper areas. As they move outward, When Lamar Williams was asked if he knew any local hunter who had scored a wild turkey grand slam, he said, Go see Tommy Harper. Hes a great turkey hunter and loves to travel and hunt. Im sure he has. Well, it turns out that Harper has scored a grand slam 11 times, meaning that he has bagged Eastern, Osceola, Merriam and Rio sub-species of wild turkeys 11 different times. That does not mean that he has only taken 11 of each, because he and his hunting group have already harvested 11 local turkeys this year. One of Harpers major hunting goals is to travel to Mexico and take a Gould turkey. That achievement would give him the right to claim credit for a royal slam. When asked what his favorite turkey is, he said, Probably the Merriam because they are so pretty. The amount of white color distribution on their wings and tail make them a beautiful bird. Union County High Schools Kristen Cook and Nancy Slocum qualified for regional competition with their fourthplace performances at the District 5-2A track and field meet, which was held April 10 in Gainesville. The top four finishers in each event earned the right to move on to the April 16 Region 2 meet at First Academy in Orlando. Cook will advance in the shot put after a fourth-place distance of 31-3.75, earning the last regional berth ahead of Fort Whites Rykia Jackson, who had a distance of 30-5. Slocums time of 28.03 in the 200m earned the last regional berth ahead of Palatkas Kari Rasher, who had a time of 28.14. Cook just missed out on qualifying in the discus with a fifth-place throw of 89-3. Keaaris Ardley won the highjump championship, while fellow Bradford High School teammates helped the Tornadoes qualify for regionals in five other events at the District 5-2A track and field meet on April 10 in Gainesville. Ardley cleared 6-2 in the high jump, which was 6 inches better than runner-up William Barlow of Palatka. The top four finishers in each event qualified for the April 16 Region 2 meet at Orlandos First Academy. Bradfords Kenny Dinkins was the district runner-up in the 400m with a time of 49.63, which placed him behind champion Kaven Berry of Palatka, who had a time of 49.07. The boys 4x400m relay team of Ardley, Dinkins, Chris Barron and Brenton Ruise placed third with a time of 3:38.80. Diontre Jonas placed third in the 200m with a time of 22.59 and fourth in the 100m with a time of 11.03. Sarah Frederick earned the lone regional berth for Bradford on the girls side, placing fourth in the 1600m with a time of 6:21.72. Frederick just missed qualifying in the 3200m, placing fifth with a time of 15:49.62. Dinkins and Barron also earned fifth-place finishes Dinkins in the 200m with a time of 22.80 and Barron in the 400m with a time of 52.97. The boys 4x800m relay team of Kristopher Padgett, Taylor Sanders, Robert Martin and Tyler Oliver placed sixth with a time of 10:31.39. Ardley placed seventh in the long jump (18-10), while Alec Harden was seventh in the to her background, having grown up around logging because of her father, David. She knows what shes doing, Stone said. She can run a chainsaw. She can run a knuckleboom (crane). Shes 100 percent the real deal. Though Sims hit it right off with her fellow Dreadknots, it took a little longer to get used to being surrounded by a television crew. When you first start filming, you kind of have to work around everybody on the film crew and everybody on the boat, Sims said, but then a couple of weeks into it, its just like you push them out of your way, or they will get out of your way. Sims described the experience of seeing herself on TV for the first time awkward. Roberts said its one of those strange moments along with someone who youve never met before excited about the chance to meet you. Those are all the surreal moments, Roberts said. The same can be said for seeing yourself doing something on camera that you dont remember doing. Ive got a line about the Titanic that I have no recollection of saying whatsoever, Roberts said. I said it, and it was great, but I dont remember saying it. You could forgive any of the Dreadknots for forgetting something they said or did. Stone said six hours of aired footage has been culled from approximately 1,400 hours of video. Its crazy to actually see what they used, what they didnt use, what they shouldve used and what we wished they wouldve used, Stone said. There is lots of hilarious footage that TV viewers never get to see, Roberts said. Like the Slip N Slide, which Roberts described as awesome. It was a Slip N Slide that went from the hotel to the ocean, lets just put it that way, Stone said. Since joining the show for its seventh season, Sims has proven to be quite popular. Her Facebook page has approximately 8,000 followers. Thats no surprise to Roberts, who joked that Sims was bound to become popular hanging out with him and Stone. Awesome begets awesome, Roberts said. Sims quickly added, When youve got three awesome things happening at one time, youve got greatness. Thats what weve gotgreatness. Roberts said hes glad to see how popular Sims has become. I told Katelyn when she came on that I hoped she took off and that this was the springboard to something great for her. The popularity, the clowning around, the Slip N Slidesits all good, but what Sims enjoys the most is using Ax Men and her Facebook site to talk about cystic fibrosis. Reading encouraging messages from people or being able to enlighten people about cystic fibrosis tops being a TV celebrity. I feel like Im making people aware of (cystic fibrosis), Sims said. Theyll always send a message, Hey, I heard you have this, or, I Googled your name, and I saw this CF thing about you. They ask questions about it. When they ask questions, youre obviously educating them about it, which is an awesome feeling, knowing that youre telling them something they didnt know before. The more people are educated about cystic fibrosis, the quicker the disease can be eliminated, Roberts said. He and Stone are willing to help Sims do whatever it takes to bring about that reality. Anything that can possibly be done, you sign us up, were there, Stone said. The people of Bradford County have greatly supported her in her fundraising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, said Sims, whose efforts helped create an annual Great Strides fundraising walk. Making an appearance at the Bradford County Fair and bringing Roberts and Stone along with her is just a small way of saying thanks, she said. It may not be much, but its a little bit to give back, Sims said. Sims said she would definitely consider other TV opportunities in the future so that she can continue in her efforts to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis. For now, though, she sounds happy to be a part of Ax Men as long as the show will have her. Its just something that you go and do every day just like any other job, Sims said. Its the same routine every day. Its normal to me. Well, as normal as spending time with Capt. Clint and the Kraken can be. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, April 17, 2014 THE BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH Since 1879 Thank YouHeather, Joan & Lindafor aGreat Job!

April 11 in the BHS media center. I was jumping up and down on the couch, Parks said, describing his reaction to Tabors offer. Tabor, as a private, Christian college, offers more than just the chance to play at the next level. I like the values this school offers, Parks said. Its a heavy Christian school. Thats what I really like about it. Prior to high school, Parks had never played football, but he said he decided to give it a try since all his friends in ninth grade were playing. At first, I hated it, Parks said, noting that he particularly didnt enjoy the practices in the Florida heat. However, the more he played, the more the sport grew on him. I started to love it, he said. Bradford head coach Steve Reynolds said the Parks best attributes are his size and strength. Hes a huge person thats difficult to move around, Reynolds said. Plus, as someone who didnt begin playing until his freshman year, he has a lot of upside. We think he has a lot of raw talent to offer, Reynolds said. Reynolds said Parks made huge strides his junior season and proved versatile this past season, moving into the noseguard position after the graduation of Phillip James. He did a great job with that, Reynolds said. When asked to describe how he thinks hell feel when he steps onto the field for the first time as a Tabor player, Parks said, Ill probably feel how I felt my freshman year (at BHS) when I stepped on the field. (Ill have) butterflies. Initial nerves aside, theres no reason to think that Parks game wont continue to develop. If he gets there early, applies himself throughout the summer and learns the system, I dont see why he cant get on the field next year, Reynolds said. I think hes got a bright future ahead of him. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer He didnt like football when he first began playing in ninth grade, but Bradford High School senior Markel Parks eventually fell in love with the sport. Now, hes got the chance to extend his playing days, signing a letter of intent to play at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan. Parks, a defensive lineman, received an offer from the school in the mail not long before signing his official paperwork during a signing ceremony on Bradfords Parks signs to play football at Tabor College of the programs first signees. Its just exciting to be with a new program because youre going to be the first team to actually set the tone for the next couple of years, Collins, a second baseman/shortstop, said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High School middle infielder Wyatt Collins will be part of building a new baseball program after signing a letter of intent to play at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville. Its just exciting to put all my work toward baseball, and now its finally paying off, Collins said after an April 11 signing ceremony in the BHS media center. Im just glad I get to play baseball at the collegiate level. Trinity announced earlier this year it was adding baseball to its athletic program.

working with her and taking (her game) to the next level, White said. Skinner said she hopes she can get the chance to play elsewhere following two years at St. Petersburg. Jolley has no doubts about that happening. I really dont think shell go just two years, Jolley said. I think once those two years are up, shell keep going. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was perhaps a late start compared to many college-bound athletes, but Keystone Heights High School senior Keerston Skinner turned just four years of volleyball into an opportunity at the next level, courtesy of St. Petersburg College. Skinner admitted that she never thought shed have the opportunity to play at the collegiate level. Im excited, she said, following an April 7 signing ceremony in the KHHS media center. Im thankful that (St. Petersburg coach Scott White) signed me. The front-row player had never played the sport prior to her freshman year and cant really say why she wanted to start playing. Honestly, I dont know, Skinner said. I really dont. I saw it one day, and I was like, Thats what I want to do. Once she began playing, she totally immersed herself into the sport. She eats, sleeps and breathes volleyball, Keystone head coach Nikki Jolley said. Im not kidding. She loves it. During her senior season, Skinner had matches where she recorded 10 and 11 kills against bigger schools Ridgeview and Palatka. She also had a 13-kill, six service-ace performance in a win over Fort White late in the season and tallied 13 kills in a loss to Santa Fe in the semifinals of the District 5-4A tournament. Now, Skinner gets to see what she can do beyond high school, an opportunity Jolley described as amazing. She is a wonderful person all the way around, Jolley said. No one deserves it more than her. St. Petersburg coach Scott White said Skinner as a big, strong kid hes eager to have as a part of his team.

Hes a high-character kid, Martinez said. Thats really what were aiming for. The baseball part of it will take care of itself. Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan said Collins has put in the effort necessary to be successful. Now, that effort has led to an opportunity to play after high school. Its good when a kid sets a goal, works toward that goal and then you see him accomplish that, Duncan said. Hes a good kid. Duncan said Collins is KHHS senior Keerston Skinner signs her letter of intent to play volleyball at St. Petersburg College. She is seated between her mother, Singletary, and St. Petersburg head coach Scott White. COLLINS Continued from 11B versatile enough to be able to play anywhere. Hes fast enough to play in the outfield, but when it comes to Collins play in the infield, Duncan said, He reads the ball good off the bat. He usually positions himself to catch a good ball instead of letting the ball play him. Hes got good, fundamental footwork. Hes accurate on his throws. Hes as good as has been here in a while. Duncan said Collins should thrive after taking part in Trinity Baptists conditioning program designed for baseball players only. I think hell be fine, Duncan said. Hes a hard worker. Whatever is asked of him, he does, and he usually goes beyond that. Collins cant wait to step onto the field for the first time as a Trinity Baptist player. I think its going to be a really nervous and amazing feeling, he said.
