BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Residents throughout Union County celebrated Easter in a variety of waysat church, at the library, in the community and of course at home. Leading up to Easter in Lake Butler, Victory Christian Center and First Christian Church both gave a special communion presentation of the Last Supper based on Leonardo da Vincis famous painting by the same name. First Christian reenacted the painting by giving a live portrayal of it for its Holy Week Communion Service open to the community. Senior Minister Art Peterson narrated the drama, giving a brief biographical sketch of Jesus twelve disciples as each respective man entered to take his place, and then recounted the scene as recorded in the Bible. Jesus then broke bread and passed it around along with the one cup from which each man drank. At one point when Peterson repeated the section in Scripture when Jesus says that someone will betray him that night and the disciples wondered who it was, the men froze in their respective poses to reenact da Vincis painting. They held that for several minutes while those in attendance took communion. Victory Christian performed a live dramatization of the painting, having each man describe the respective disciple he represented. Next, Pastor Patrick Maxwell, who portrayed Jesus, appeared on stage and described the events of that evening long ago and washed the disciples feet. The men then served communion to those in attendance and Maxwell went on to preach. They finished with some a cappella congregational singing. The Union County Public Library held its weekly preschool storytime, focusing this time on Easter, of course. The library welcomed over 50 children and their parents during two programs on Thursday. Activities included many Easter-related songs, stories, crafts and games. Some of the childrens favorite activities included making their own Easter bunny ear headbands, followed by bunny hopping around the library to hunt for candy-filled Easter eggs. Afterward, the children retreated back to the party room for some Easter treats and finished the party off with an egg toss, where children lined up waiting to toss their eggs through the mouth of the bunny. The librarys Tennille Brannen described it as an eggstraordinary day. On Friday, the annual Good Friday Service was held at First Christian, with ministers across the county each presenting on one of The Seven Last Words of Jesus from the Cross. That included Peterson along with Associate Minister David Tompkins, Maxwell, Larry Clyatt from Harmony Free Will Baptist Church, Paul OSteen and Tim Rose from Sardis Baptist Church in Worthington Springs and Daniel Search from First United Methodist Church in Lake Butler. Buddy Ball from Sardis led the invocation. First Christians Randy DeShong led congregational singing and Katie Monaghan played piano and sang the song titled Why by Nichole Nordeman. Even students from Union County High School attended as part of Narie Gibsons and Julie Densons World Religions class. On Saturday, the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 10082 hosted its Community Annual Easter Egg Hunt where they also served lunch and handed out goodie bags. Sanderson Christian Revival Center had a clothes giveaway, followed by an Easter egg hunt. On Easter, Sardis Baptist held a sunrise service and a regular worship service. The annual Community Sonrise Service was once again held down by the lake at the Lakeside Park pavilion. Afterward, everyone was invited to breakfast at First Christian, packing the Fellowship Hall. The church then had Sunday School and a regular worship service. The day before they enjoyed their annual Bike Ride and Easter Egg Hunt at the Arnold Farm, with lunch served afterward. In spite of inclement weather at times that offered some unseasonably cool temperatures and rain, a spirit of celebration and unity was evident throughout Union County.Residents celebrate Easter in a variety of special waysAt the library Caylee Harrison smiles with all her Easter goodies. live portrayal of Leonardo da Supper: (L-r) Vincent Alex Brown as Thaddaeus and Clinton Freeman as Simon the Zealot. Rufus Jefferson and Thomas BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Last week the City of Lake Butler installed an old railroad crossing signal as part of its growing historic district. The new addition is located next to the depot building near the beginning of the Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail. It joins an old corn crib/hen house donated by Bobby and Regina Parrish, with other items from antiquity to be added to the growing collection in the future. (Former city employee) Ricky Jenkins salvaged the blinking light, City Manager Dave Mecusker said, and he put it in the Maintenance Department, and it just got put in the back room. And its probably been in the back room for, good grief, Id say 40 years. Director for Utilities Hardy Clyatt gave Mecusker a tour about a year-and-a-half ago and brought it to his attention. And we thought it would be nice to put it up in the historical section of the park, Mecusker said. I do think its a neat thing for the citizens to see, as far as part of this areas heritage. Bill McGill will be donating a sugar cane grinder that will be set up in the next month or two, Mecusker said. The railroad signal now sits just a few blocks down from where it was originally installed across from Spires IGA and Skips Deli at the old crossing there on Southwest Sixth Avenue between State Road 100 and Southwest First Street. The railroad rails and ties were removed in the mid-1990s from the NorfolkSouthern Railroad right-of-way that runs through Putnam, Clay, Bradford and Union counties, where the 47-mile state trail is being developed.LB installs historic railroad crossing signal by depot Florida chooses replacement for FCATCommon Core opponents express concern over new testing companyBY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Last month the Florida Department of Education announced that it chose a replacement for FCAT (Floridas Comprehensive Assessment Test) 2.0, with testing to be conducted by the not-for-profit American Institutes for Research (AIR) beginning this next school year. Common Core-aligned English and math exams developed by a coalition of states were initially supposed to replace the FCAT. Those tests are being developed by PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers). However, Florida pulled back from both Common Core and its attached tests, meaning the state needed an FCAT replacement. PARCC will actually have its new assessments also available this coming school year. However, AIR is providing Floridas FCAT replacement. The new assessment will measure each childs progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input, stated Education Commissioner Pam Stewart in FDOEs release. This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize flexibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our students to analyze and think. The Florida Standards are based on the Common Core State Standards. The release gave some history on the test changes: Using input from the summit, Governor (Rick) Scott issued Executive Order 13-276, which initiated Floridas departure from the national PARCC consortium as its fiscal agent, to ensure that the state would be able to procure a test specifically designed for Floridas needs without federal intervention. Governor Scott also set out eight goals for the new assessment to ensure the best outcome for Florida students. Among those eight objectives were an emphasis on prompt reports of results, no significant change in testing time for students, no significant increase in costs of the assessments and an assurance that testing dates be as close as possible to the end of the school year to maximize learning opportunities. This assessment meets those goals. Governor Scott also requested additional public comments about the standards, which resulted in public hearings around the state and thousands of comments from Floridians. In February 2014, the State Board of Education approved changes to the standards that reflected the input. The new Florida Standards for mathematics

With the new and more rigorous standards, a new assessment was needed to measure student progress. State Board of Education Chairman Gary Chartrand praised the choice too, stating in the release, The selection of our new assessment tool is a critical step forward. Florida students will be assessed on their knowledge of the Florida Standards, which will prepare them for success in college, careers and in life. Some, however, vehemently disagree with the selection of AIR. In response to FDOEs announcement, Florida Stop Common Core Coalition (FSCCC) stated in an email newsletter to supporters, Pam Stewart has made an appallingly bad choice for the state test to replace the FCAT.   Not only does the American Institutes for Research (AIR) do major behavioral/mental health testing and research and is developing the test for the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), but they are very involved in developing briefs and other information promoting acceptance of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) lifestyle for elementary age school children. There is a basis for those claims based on AIRs website, where it states, AIR is one of the worlds largest behavioral and social science research and evaluation organizations. It also promotes a toolkit called Standards of Care for LGBT Youth: What can communities and systems do to create positive outcomes for LGBT youth? AIR has identified key concepts, data, and research as well as the connection between stigma and well-being for LGBT children and youth. This action planning tool assists organizations in identifying prioritized strategies, goals, and actions towards implementing these standards of care and incorporating them into day-to-day practice. Additionally, it states, AIRs Human and Social Development program develops knowledge and understanding about LGBT youth that takes account of their experiences and needs. AIR also enhances opportunities for the healthy development, well-being, and safety of LGBT children, youth and their families by providing workforce training and technical assistance to service providers across systems addressing behavioral health, child welfare, education, juvenile justice and homelessness. In response, AIR spokesman Larry McQuillan told PolitiFact Florida that the group does not promote issues. We are not an advocacy group, McQuillan said. AIR is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization. We do educational assessment, research, health policy research and communication and international development. We have supported many states by providing highquality assessments of their specific state standards. FDOE spokesman Joe Follick also told PolitiFact, AIR was chosen for their ability to provide an assessment that aligns with Floridas standards. Not anything else. Even Senate President Don Gaetz, a Republican, supports Commissioner Stewart and is confident that AIR will develop a Florida-specific assessment that will test students based on Florida-specific standards, spokeswoman Katie Betta told PolitiFact. Another concern is whether or not the new test is ready for prime time. It has only been field-tested in Utah and without similar demographics. However, some items on the tests have been field-tested there, but the two states will have different tests. The field-testing informs the vendor with whether or not items are appropriate items, and so we feel very confident in the ability of their field-testing to inform their items moving forward with us, Stewart said during a media conference call. Sample items will be available for review later this spring for parents and students to see the kinds of questions that will be included. Finally, test costs are also a concern. The estimate for the new PARCC assessment, if Florida had gone with it, is about $29.50 per student for reading, writing and math exams in third through 11 grades, according to StateImpact Florida. During the media conference call, Stewart said an apple-to-apples comparison puts the AIR test at $18.38 per student. However, the total per-student cost will actually be $34.23 which includes the additional Florida End-ofCourse (EOC) Assessments currently administered and in developmentAlgebra 1, Biology 1, Geometry, U.S. History and Civics. The FDOE website states that the cost per scored test, meaning the FCAT, for the 2011-12 school year was $13.37, and the total cost per student was $30.59, which includes the EOCs. With about 2.7 million students in public schools, that puts the total annual cost at over $92.4 million per year to assess students and schools on their progress. No name has been drafted yet for the new test.

Whether youre at home, at work and on the go, authentic faith is being practiced. We believe the Bible teaches that the hub of faith development is not the church but its the home, or the family (Deuteronomy 6). As effective as church programs are, no pastor, no ministry and no program has nearly the impact and influence that moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas have on the next generation.   Home is where your worldview is formed. Home is where you are who you really are. Its a continual work-inprogress but it is a blessed and wonderful journey that were on, bridging the gap between faith and family. Not long ago First Baptist Church of Lake Butler purchased the building that housed Roberts Insurance and the Union County Times, both of which are now located in the former Maines Insurance offices. We are now executing our vision for the building, and the name truly says it all: The Bridge. The idea behind The Bridge is that First Baptist is committed to partnering with families to bridge faith and family. We have three ways in which were setting out to bridge the gap. 1. Get the Gospel. The Bridge will house youth Bible fellowship groups every Sunday, and youth worship services every Wednesday. On Sunday mornings, our Bible fellowship groups are studying The Gospel Project, which systematically works through Scripture exalting Jesus and the Gospel in every lesson from Genesis to Revelation. Every Wednesday night we have a youth worship service where we worship corporately together. We fellowship, and the word of God is preached and life application is given. These two weekly events are our main efforts to get the Gospel into our young people. 2. Gather round one table. The second piece of The Bridge is to gather round one table. This will be a new and exciting piece that the building, The Bridge, will service. What I mean by gather round one table is simply gathering students, parents and other believers in the church and rubbing elbows together, experiencing life together and passing on an example of Christlike living. The reason this building is not simply the youth building, is because the very last thing that we want is to put our students on an island and separate them from the rest of the church. I will be very intentional to include on our church calendar events that will bring families and the church family together to The Bridge such as fifth-quarters after home football games. Id love to see our students able to come to The Bridge and bring their unchurched friends with their families for games, fellowship, food and more after games. Family movie nights and game nights are just a few things Id love to see The Bridge serve the families at First Baptist and the community so that we may gather round one table to bridge our faith and family.   3. Grow together. Growing together is simply connecting parents and students, grandmas and grandpas and students to whats being taught. Its my vision that   w hat happens in The Bridge will be able to equip parents and engage parents in the faith in development of their children. This is a continual work-in-progress. An example is a family resource center in the front lobby of The Bridge, where at any time you can help yourself to various resources, articles, books and other things that will   equip the parent and grandparent to continue to develop faith in their students. The building will soon begin a complete overhaul to facilitate our purposes for it. We hope to be in The Bridge by mid-summer.FBC building a bridge between faith and family First Baptist Church bought the former Roberts Insurance building next to its current Extension Service celebrates 100 yearsBY BASIL BACTAWAR County Extension Dir. & Agent This year on May 8 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Smith-Lever Act, which established the Cooperative Extension Service. In Florida, Extension allows us all to benefit from the research and education of our land-grant universities, the University of Florida and Florida A&M University. UF/IFAS Extension has improved the lives of Floridians in many ways. If youve learned how to choose healthier foods, conserve water, save money or start a butterfly garden, chances are you learned it from Extension. If youve ever been to a 4-H camp or gotten help from a Master Gardener, you know Extension. On our 100th Anniversary, UF/IFAS Extension in Union County is proud of its accomplishments, but we look continually towards the future, finding solutions to the challenges we Floridians will face in the next 100 years and sharing them to make life healthier, happier and more prosperous for you.

They replace the wire sensors used to change traffic lights. They are replacements for the wire sensors which are currently cut into the roadway surface. When the wires fail, the signal does not detect the traffic correctly, and drivers experience longer wait times, said Sam Middleton in an email. He is a traffic signal systems engineer at FDOTs Lake City Traffic Operations. He said the FLIR cameraa similar technology used in search and rescue operationssenses the heat of the vehicle (engine, tires, exhaust, headlights) and tells the computer controlling at the intersection that one or more vehicles is waiting for the signal. The neighboring city of Gainesville uses FLIR technology at various intersections. The technology has been around for many years in military and law enforcement applications, Middleton added, but has just recently been adapted for use on the transportation system. It is one more tool the FDOT has for detecting traffic to actuate traffic signals. As with any tool, it is not a one size fits all and it will be employed when the need warrants their installation, he said. In Lake Butlers case, FLIR is a much-needed answer to a continuing maintenance issue with the current wire sensors. Due to the large amount of heavy truck traffic on State Road 121 and State Road 100, maintaining the wires at this intersection is a constant task, Middleton said. They were lasting about six months at a time before they required replacement. In other locations, the wires may last over 10-plus years before requiring replacement. He added that the current wires will not be removed, but only deactivated. A milling and resurfacing project is scheduled for both state roads in the near future and the loops will be removed permanently at that time. And time will tell if the new solution does a better and quicker job of changing the traffic lights.

Were just imagining the BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer American Cancer Society statistics show that the cancer death rate for men and women combined decreased by 20 percent from 1991 through 2010. Good news, to be sure, but according to Cancer Statistics 2014, which was published in the American Cancer Society journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, it is estimated that 585,720 people in the U.S. will die from cancer in 2014. It is estimated that 1,665,540 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2014. What the numbers show is that even though there is hope for those who are diagnosed with cancer, cancer is still a prevalent disease that claims a lot of lives. The quest for a cure continues, and it is that end goal that keeps people walking around the Bradford High School track throughout the night during the annual Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Laura Cleesen of Starke has been told she cant finish the fight and become cancer free, but that does not make her any less of a fighter. I may have bad days, but Im going to be here as long as I can, Cleesen said. As I say to everybody, I may not win the war, but Im going to win every battle until that point. Thats just my mindset. Cleesen has battled through two bouts of breast cancer and an occurrence of uterine cancer. In March 2013, the discovery of a small lump on the back of her neck led to a diagnosis of nonHodgkin lymphoma. Doctors have told Cleesen she will never again hear the words, Youre cancer free. The cancer is spreading throughout her body, but that hasnt stopped Cleesen from wearing a smile on her face, putting her best foot forward and trying to be an encouragement an encouragement to her family, friends and even those who dont know her.

Cleesen was asked to give a survivors speech at this years kickoff party. It was very hard to give that speech because I was never open, Cleesen said, adding, When it was done, I knew I made an impact on some people. They told me it helped them to realize things. If I can do that, then Im accomplishing something. With this Relay, if I can reach out and just help one person through it emotionally, then I know that Im doing OK. Cleesen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. It was a shock, of course. Cleesen said the diagnosis left her wanting to crawl in a hole, but at the same time, she didnt want to let the disease slow her down. Her approach to chemotherapy, for example, was to undergo treatment on Fridays so she could rest on weekends, be green on Mondays and then be able to go to work on Tuesdays. In fact, she told her boss that if she ever called in sick, he was to give her a hard time about it and not to ever let her give up. I was bound and determined I was going to continue working, Cleesen said. Cleesen, though, because of that determination, was holding all of her emotions in check. When the chemotherapy caused her hair to start falling out, she called her boss to say she wouldnt be in to work that day. Her boss response was to go pick Cleesen up, take her to her office and give her the OK to have the emotional outburst she was needing. He physically came and got me, put me in his carin my pajamastook me to my office, shut the blinds in my office, shut the door and looked at me and said, Just cry. You havent cried. You just keep going like everythings OK. I let it go. I just let it out. Then he took me home, and I CLEESENContinued from 1B was OK. Cleesen said eventually hearing those words, Youre cancer free, was a blessing, but she would later be diagnosed with breast cancer again. She wanted to have a double mastectomy done, but doctors advised against that, saying that the surgery was too risky due to the fact Cleesen has an enlarged heart due to cardiomyopathy. It turned out to be a true definition of a catch 22. Having a double mastectomy was a risk, but not having it was a bit of a risk as well. In March 2012, Cleesen was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She said it was the result of cancerous breast tissue. At first, Cleesen didnt suspect the return of cancer. She has diverticulitis and suspected that was what was causing her stomach to swell. I kept getting bigger and bigger in that area, Cleesen said. I actually looked like I was pregnant. As it turned out, Cleesen had three tumors the size of baseballs in her uterus. It was one of those here-wego-again moments, but Cleesen said she thought of how many other ways she had been blessed in life and decided there was nothing to do but keep fighting. That mindset was severely tested a short time later with the discovery of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Cleesen had large, cancerous masses on her neck and on the lymph nodes in her throat. She also had a 6.2-centimeter mass under her tongue toward where her tonsils wouldve been. She had all the masses surgically removed with the exception of the one under her tongue. Cleesen said shes not taking a chance getting that removed because she doesnt want to lose the ability to be able to talk to her two grandchildren. Family has kept Cleesen going, whether its grandchildren Courtni and Camden, children Mark, Amber, Larry and Ashley, future son-in-law Ross or her husband of more than 20 years, Lawrence. She recalled how a doctor told her she wouldnt be around to see the high school graduation of her daughter Amber. Well, Amber, who is 20, has since graduated. If Cleesen has her way, shell be around to see 15-year-old Ashley graduate. However, she has no control over the future. She just focuses her energies on each day as it comes around. You know how people say, Dont count the days, make the days count? Thats basically what I do, Cleesen said. I just enjoy every day. I have my kids, my grandkids, my husband and my friends. Basically, I just pour my heart into all of that. I cant worry about tomorrow because its not here yet. I just live every day. There are bad days, of course. Cleesen said there are some days she doesnt want to get up out of bed. She thinks of others, though, and says to herself that even though her problems may look bad, there is someone out there with worse problems. Ive got to get up, Cleesen BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer A special recognition of Jerry Whitehead and the dedication of a new monument area devoted to fallen Bradford County lawenforcement personnel will highlight this years BradfordUnion Law-Enforcement Memorial Service, which will be hosted this year by the Starke Police Department on Thursday, May 1, at 6:30 p.m. at the Starke Square (538 E. Call St.) between S.R. 100 and S.R. 230. The annual service pays tribute to the officers who gave their lives during service to their respective areas: six in Union County and 19 in Bradford County. Starke Police Capt. Barry Warren said attending the service is a great way for people to express their thanks to those who did so much for the place they call home. Basically, these are the people who made our community as safe as it is today, Warren said. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead, Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith and Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson will pay tribute to Jerry Whitehead, who died Dec. 18, 2013, after a brief illness. He was the longestserving sheriff in the state, having been elected in 1984 and serving up until the time of his death. Its a great opportunity to recognize him, Warren said. Also planned is the official dedication of a monument area to the 19 Bradford County lawenforcement officers who gave their lives in service. The area, which will include 13 benches, consists of a memorial stone placed in honor of each officer as well as 18 palm trees planted in their memories. (One tree represents both father and son George W. Epperson and Henry W. Epperson, who were both former sheriffs.) Warren said the idea for such a physical memorial has been in the works for approximately 10 years. Thanks to the support of donors in the community, the idea has become a realitya reality that has been overdue, Warren said, pointing out that the first officer killed in the line of duty was Dec. 25, 1885, while the last was July 26, 1995. Its time, Warren said. Its beyond time for these people who served their last call in service to this community. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead will perform the roll call for those who gave their lives in service to Union County: Union deputies Hal Croft (May 23, 1961) and Ronald Jackson (May 23, 1961), Department of Corrections officers Paul Jordan (Jan. 24, 1976) and John S. Dennard (May 5, 1983), Union deputy Renee D. Azure (Aug. 6, 2002) and Department of Corrections officer Adam Sanderson (March 6, 2009). Bradford County Sheriffs Department Capt. Brad Smith and Lawtey Correctional Institution Warden Barry Reddish will perform the roll call for Bradford Countys fallen officers: sheriffs George W. Epperson (Dec. 25, 1885), Henry W. Epperson (Jan. 20, 1890) and David Levy Alvarez (May 30, 1891), Bradford deputy Andrew J. Kite (Feb. 21, 1899), Starke Marshall Jeff Jones (Nov. 19, 1903), sheriffs Everett E.

Sympathy, no, but support is another matter. Cleesen said it really means a lot to open an email, for example, and read, Good morning, beautiful, or, How are you today? What cancer patients need, more than anything, is support, Cleesen said. With that in mind, Cleesen tries to put on a smile every day and do what she can to be an encouragement to others. Thats why shes looking forward to Relay for Life. She wants to have that positive impact on people who have cancer, even though she, too, has the disease. Theres a reason why Im still here, Cleesen said. Thats the way I look at it. Theres a reason why this happened to me. Theres a reason why Im still fighting, and Ill continue to fight.

Bankat 6 p.m. at the track. Then, once the Relay begins with an opening ceremony that will feature Amber ONeal performing the national anthem, survivors and their caregivers will walk the first lap. Once those survivors get on the track, theres usually not a dry eye, Lee said. Another emotional moment is the luminaria ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at 9:30 p.m. The ceremony consists of paper bags, containing lighted votive candles, placed around the track, bearing the names of survivors, those who are currently battling cancer or those who have lost their lives to cancer. The track stadium lighting will be turned off so that only the glow of the candles is visible as the names of those the bags represent are read aloud. The rest of the event will consist of various themed laps (Mardis Gras, pajamas, hula hoop, super hero, etc.), a scavenger hunt, a Zumba class, a Miss-ter Relay contest, a dance competition and other fun activities, as well as musical performances by Melissa Mann, Shelby Clark, Jessica Thornton and Lindsey Murphy. You also do not have to be a member of a team or a survivor/ caregiver to attend. People are encouraged to show up because there will be several fundraisers going on at the Relay. Many teams will be serving up delicious items, including such fare as fruit kabobs, boiled peanuts, cotton candy, Teriyaki wings and chicken and rice. The Community State Bank team will even be roasting a whole pig. If you go out and eat on Friday night, come down to the track and eat with us, Lee said. As of April 17, 38 fundraising teams (178 participants) had registered to take part in Relay for Life. Though fundraising takes place at the event, it is really a yearlong effort. Thats why teams had already raised $31,000 as of April 17. Community State Bank, for example, had raised more than $5,000 with its Pua the Purple Pig campaign, while D. Mosley Trucking, which joined the cause for the first time a few weeks prior to last years Relay, hosted a golf tournament that raised $4,500. Every year, Maria Stephenson raises the most money as an individual, and this year looks to be no different. As of April 15, she had raised $4,087. The fundraising effort doesnt begin and end with Relay for Life, which ties in with the American Cancer Societys mission this yearFinish the Fight. What that means is we want to encourage everyone who is raising funds for this to finish the fight through Aug. 31 when our fiscal year ends, Lee said. A lot of people think the fundraising ends at the event, but it doesnt. We go on. Last years Relay for Life and various fundraisers raised approximately $72,000, with approximately $9,000 being raised solely at Relay for Life. Both totals were record numbers, and the goal is to do even better this year. Lee said this years total fundraising goal is $90,000. Participating in Relay for Life and raising funds for the American Cancer Society is near and dear to Lees heart. Lee, who lost her mother to lung cancer in 1999, said many people with cancer are not benefiting from the various services and programs the American Cancer Society makes available. The one thing I have found is a lot of people who have been diagnosed with cancer are not aware of the American Cancer Society, Lee said. This will mark Lees sixth year of involvement with Relay for Life. Her fifth year, when she served as team development chair, had one especially memorable moment. Lee was contacted by a woman who had heard about Relay and was seeking more information about it. The two communicated back and forth before Lee met the lady in person at the event. After the event, the woman told Lee she had a wonderful time and said, You dont know how that changed my life. I was homebound. I was just giving up. I wasnt getting out. Its just completely changed my life. Moments like that are what make participation in Relay for Life so special. If you dont touch but one person, its worth it, Lee said.

We stand with Cliven Bundy, who said: I dont recognize them (the federal government) having any jurisdiction or authority over this land. In the United States the people are the government; their united voice is the only sovereign that should rule, and only power that should be obeyed. The fact that a desert tortoise is endangered doesnt change this fact. The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) usurpation in forcing the Bundys to pay for land that has been in his family for 140 years doesnt change this fact. For those of us who still labor under the conviction that the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, it must be observed that the only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations. Thats it! All other law enforcement matters are the purview of the individual states, according to the Tenth Amendment. Unfortunately, for most of the Twentieth Century the federal government has demanded more and more power and authority that it does not constitutionally possess. And, for the most part, the individual states have sheepishly done little to resist, not to mention (in this case) County law enforcement. All of which has led to the events that are now playing out in Clark County, Nevada. To coin a maxim from the German pastor, Martin Neimoller: First, they came for the Randy Weaver family in Idaho, and I did not speak out; next, they came for the Branch 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thu rsday, April 24, 2014 We are proud to announce the return of the Charles Daniel Sikes, P.A.Monday, April 28, 2014After a one-year deployment in Afghanistan, Kuwait and other parts of Southwest Asia in support of Operation Enduring Freedom Charles Daniel Sikes is pleased to be back in Bradford County and is ready to serve all your legal needs. 817 MacMahon Street Starke, FL 32091(904) 964-2020Daniel Sikes@yahoo.com Dan SikesPlease stop by and say Hello $5 Yager Bombsstarting at 8pmEvery Friday Night THURSDAY Buy 10 Wings(Boneless or Bone-in)Get 10 at 1/2 Price!SAT & SUN Buy 25 Wings Get a FREE Pitcher of Beer, Tea or Soda ON SUNDAYSWITH CHURCH BULLETIN LUNCH SPECIALS$750DailyMONDAY NIGHT starting at 7pm$6 Pitchers $375 Royal FlushesTUESDAY NIGHT Draft Beers 2/$350 Wells 2/$450WEDNESDAY FAMILY NIGHT60 Wings starting at 5pm $11 Domestic Buckets of Beer 127 E.

Sounds like you are saying the people were wrong. You bring up Mr. John, who has been gone for five years. I say let them rest in peace. If you will give Brad a chance the people wilt see that he will take care of them. A true southern gentleman would let them rest in peace so their family can have closure. So let me remind you its called a democracy, not the good o! boy system and a real man would know the difference.

Williston would go up 5-0 before hanging on for a 7-6 win. Rogers and Worrell batted 2-for-3 and 2-for-2, respectively, while freshman Seth Hendricks went 2-for-3 to help Union rally. The Tigers had the tying run on third base in the last inning, but Dukes said the Williston shortstop made a great play on a ball that wouldve normally been a hit in most cases. The Tigers responded to the loss by winning all 10 of their remaining games, including a 6-5 win over Williston. That second matchup against Williston saw Union take a 6-0 lead into the seventh, but an approximately 30-minute injury timeout after two Williston outfielders collided seemed to take something away from his team, Dukes said. Williston scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh, but Lovelace entered the game and did a good job on the mound, Dukes said. Lovelace forced the Devils to hit a couple of ground balls before Williston hit a dribbler back to the mound for what would be the games final out. Worrell started the game, giving up one hit and striking out five in five innings. At the plate, Joyner was 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Lovelace was 2-for-4 with an RBI. After avenging their only loss, the Tigers won their final five games by an average score of 14-3. They defeated Interlachen 7-4, Bell 10-5, St. Francis 25-0, Hamilton County 9-7 and Dixie County 17-1. In the season finale against Dixie, Rogers and Joyner were 4-for-4 and 4-for-5, respectively, while sophomore Garrett Williams was 3-for-4. Worrell was 2-for-2, while Driggers and sophomore Dalton Teston were each 2-for-3. Also contributing to the best season Dukes can ever remember were sophomore Kyle Davis and freshmen Matthew Jobin, Stephen Milner, Garrett Ritch, Jarrett Shadd and Dylan Thornton. There were not many games that all 14 did not in some way contribute, Dukes said. The Tigers also excelled in the classroom, with each player maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA. Half the team had weighted GPAs of 4.0 or higher. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a season to be remembered and a good sign for the future of Union County High School baseball as the junior varsity team went 12-1, with its lone loss coming by one run against Williston. Our varsity program certainly has some promise, Union head coach Bret Dukes said. The Tigers scored an average of 11 runs per game, while allowing an average of just four per game. Their last gamea 17-1 win over Dixie County was a good way to put the icing on the cake of an unbelievable season, Dukes said. Offensively, sophomore Willie Rogers and freshman Phillip Joyner provided a spark, batting .520 and .470, respectively, in the lead-off position and numbertwo positions. Hitting and getting on base is almost contagious, Dukes said. Though Rogers and Joyner led the team, Dukes said it was hard to really single out any player from the rest of the lineup, which batted a cumulative .360. We were so consistent in our lineup, Dukes said. It did not matter who was coming up. You had confidence the kid was going to get it done. Dukes said the Tigers had several players who could throw strikes, including freshman Taz Worrell, who led the team. Worrell went 4-0 and had a 2.30 ERA. Dukes, though, singled out freshman J.C. Lovelace for providing consistency as one of several middle relievers as well as sophomore Casey Driggers, who got in a zone the last couple of weeks of the season and pitched lights out. The Tigers opened the season by defeating Interlachen 10-5 and followed that with a 6-3 win over. In their third game, however, the Tigers got off to a slow start and committed six errors in the first two innings. Visiting The recent large bass caught in Kingsley Lake have created a lot of talk among local fishermen. This is the second year in a row that 14-plus-pound bass have been caught in Kingsley. In 2013, Len Andrews pulled into a dock on the western bank of the lake and weighed one that went over 14 pounds.   Afterward, he released the fish unharmed. This year, two fish over 14 pounds have been landed, weighed and released. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission accepted the 14-pound, 9-ounce bass that Brooks Morrell caught, placing him at the top of the FWC Trophy Catch Program. Brooks indicated that he has landed nine bass over 9 pounds, four over 10 pounds and two over 13 poundsall in Kingsley Lake. He is also aware of three others that have been caught that were over 13 pounds. Kingsley Lake is no stranger to large bass. In 1967, Benny Zoltoski was trolling around Kingsley with two bass in his livewell that weighed about 10 pounds each. However, when he passed what was then Kingsley Beach and headed to the Officers Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 5B Fins, Fur & Tails and presentClub at Camp Blanding, he had a huge hit, which he thought was a hang-up, until the line-water intersection began to move outward, indicating that the hook was moving toward the surface. Making a long story short, it was not a hang-up, but a 16-pound, 6-ounce bass that was eventually mounted, hanging on the wall of Stricklands Store for years. The history of big bass in North Central Florida does not center entirely around Kingsley Lake, however. Buddy Wright, a current resident of Keystone Heights who has always fished from a 12-foot jon boat and has never fished in a bass tournament, was having a good day on the St. Johns River south of Palatka in April 1987. He had a couple of nice catches under his belt that weighed over 5 pounds each. His last catch of the day caught on a Bill Norman Weed Walker lurewas a monster that weighed in at 18 pounds, 13 ounces.   Unfortunately the fish lost a lot of roe before its first weight on a certified, accurate scale. The fish was subsequently frozen and thawed out for another certified weight. However, the FWC would not recognize the fish because a wildlife officer did not get to Wrights home until two weeks after notification and after the fish was frozen, thus depriving Wright of a Florida record. All was not lost, though, because the International Game Fish Association did recognize the catch as a world record for a 16-pound-line weight catch, and Wright has that plaque on his wall beside the replica. Believe it or not, the largest bass landed in Bradford, Clay or Union counties, according to this research and in recent history, came from Brooklyn Lake in Keystone. In 1966, Forest and Stream magazine, which later became Field and Stream, published an article about an 18-pound, 2-ounce bass caught by Hugh Paul. Though there have been larger bass caught, the gold standard for record largemouth bass is still the 1932 George Perry bass that weighed 22 pounds, 4 ounces, with a 32.5-inch length and 28.5-inch girth. Manabu Kurita caught a 22-pound, 4.97-ounce bass in Japan on July 2, 2009. (Despite bettering the Perry bass by almost an ounce, IGFA rules consider the catch a tie with the Perry bass.) In 2006, Mac Weakley foul hooked and landed a 25-pound, 0.01-ounce bass that was photographed, weighed and released. Paul Nosca has done a significant amount of research on the 25 largest bass ever caught, and he makes several good observations about record largemouth bass. Many of the larger Florida bass have been very long and comparatively light in weight.   Bill Whipple caught what is considered to be the world record longest bass in 2002 on Lake Toho. The bass was 33 inches in length, but weighed only 14 pounds and 6 ounces. Certainly bass caught in the spawn and full of roe would have a significant weight advantage over fish caught while not spawning. Noscas research on the largest 25 bass ever caught can be found online under his name.Fishing outlookDespite some reports to the contrary, especially on Newnans Lake, the specks should be moving to deeper water as they finish their spring spawn. Shellcrackers and bluegills should be swapping places with the specks as they prepare for their first spawn.   The initial spawn for the shellcrackers will be their primary bedding season for the year, while the bluegills will bed continuously throughout the summer, especially around full and new moons. The big fish and comprehensive weights at the local tournaments have shown a little decline, which would suggest that the bass spawn is beginning to wane somewhat.   It might show a brief spark after the traditionally cool Easter, but this yearly phenomena will also soon begin to close ranks.   When that occurs, the quest for bream and bass will begin to compete equally for the remainder of the summer. The better part of the sheepshead spawn on both inshore coasts, but the stripped and toothy creatures will continue to hang out around the rocks, oyster bars and bridges over the summer. As the coastal waters warm, pompano and whiting will take up residence on the beaches, and the kings will move in to the beaches in time for the big kingfish tournaments on the east coast.   Local tourney resultsThe results of the April 16 Bald Eagle Bass Tournament are: Drew Carroll and Chris Hollingsworth in first, Chris Kadlec and Glenn Barnes in second, Wayne Geiger and Zach Smith in third and Ryan Gonzales with the big fish.   The results of the April 17 Sampson Lake Tournament are: Braden Gray and Cason Noles in first, Ronny Pruitt and Matthew Elixson in second and Elixson with the big fish.

He was born in Doerun, Ga. on Feb. 22, 1938. Von was the eighth child born to Wallace and Sallie (Hodges) Fraser. He was raised in a large family in a small, rural town with a strong work ethic. At age 12 he was a telephone switchboard operator and worked a paper route. On summer breaks he picked cotton, cropped tobacco and stacked peanuts while completing his high school education. When questioned about stacking peanuts he replied, Anyone who grew up in rural Georgia in the 1950s can tell you what that means! He inherited his love of conversing with others from his mother. With her nine children gathered around the dinner table on Sundays, she enjoyed sharing stories of growing up in rural Georgia. When questioned why he talks fast, Von replied, he had to talk fast to get a word in edgewise with eleven people at one table. After a tour of duty in the United States Army as a NonCommission Officer, Von attended the University of Florida where he earned his BSBA in Accounting in 1969.

He was hired in 1981 by the Alachua County Tax Collectors Office where he held the position of Assistant Tax Collector until 2000 when he was elected Tax Collector. During his tenure as a public servant, Von used his inherited talent for conversation from his beloved mother to reach out to thousands of people in all walks of life to help them with tax issues or personal concerns. He often said no tax payers concern is too small or too large; they deserve my undivided attention. Vons extraordinary commitment to service was evidenced by the many positions of leadership he held both locally and statewide. His involvement included but was not limited to: Florida Tax Collectors Association, Vietnam Veterans of America, Korean War Veterans Association, American Legion, Military Support Group, Florida Credit Union, Habitat for Humanity, Leadership Gainesville Alumni Association, Cotton Club Museum and cultural Center, League of Women Voters, African American Accountability Alliance, Florida Cattlemens Association, NAACP, PTA, A.L., Mebane Alumni Association, Inc., Arts Council of Elementary Schools, and the Gainesville Lions Club.

When Lacy was ordered out of the vehicle along with Eiserman, he refused several times to place his hands on the vehicle so the deputy could pat him down for weapons. He only did so after the deputy told him he would be tasered if he didnt cooperate. The deputy also found a bag with cocaine in it during his search of Lacy.

and tie the score at 1-1. Gault, who doubled in two of her previous three at-bats, followed with another single that scored Atkinson. I didnt hit it where I wanted it, but, hey, a single will work for me, said Gault, who was 3-for4. Adkins gave up seven hits and five walks, but pitched the Tornadoes out of several jams. P.K. Yonge (21-3) loaded the bases twice, but failed to score in each instance, and also had innings where it failed to score when it had runners in scoring position with one out. Of Adkins 10 strikeouts, five ended innings. We always say its one versus ninenine players against that one batter, Gault said, but (Adkins) really held us in this game. She worked her heart out. She pitched great. For her part, Adkins said, I just knew I had to focus and concentrate on our main goal, which was to not let them score hardly any runs so we could have a chance to win this game. Gault got the Tornadoes off to a good start when she doubled to lead off the game. However, P.K. Yonge pitcher Kalen McGill retired three straight batters to leave Gault stranded on third. Two hits and a walk loaded the bases for P.K. Yonge with just one out in the bottom of the inning. A baserunning miscue by the Blue Wave afer a forceout at home allowed Bradford to get out of the inning without surrendering a run. P.K. Yonge put two on with no outs in the second, but Adkins recorded two strikeouts as well as holding the two base runners in place after fielding a bunt before throwing to first for an out. Adkins recorded her fifth strikeout of the game to end the third inning after the Blue Wave loaded the bases with two outs. (Adkins) always gives great effort and shines every time she goes on the mound, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Mackenzie Gault capped a three-hit night with a single that scored what would prove to be the winning run in the Bradford High School softball teams 2-1 win over P.K. Yonge in the District 5-4A championship game on April 17 in Alachua. It was the second straight district championship for the Tornadoes (18-7), who played District 6 runner-up South Sumter in a regional quarterfinal game on April 23. Bradford, the tournaments second seed, had lost its previous two matchups with top seed P.K. Yonge by one run each. Its an indescribable feeling, pitcher Ashton Adkins said. Its amazing just knowing that weve struggled with them the past two times. This win meant so much to me and my team. Its just tremendous. The Tornadoes had three hits entering the top of the seventh, but lead-off batter Annie Luke hit a single, while a throwing error on Jaci Atkinsons ground ball to the shortstop gave Bradford two on with no outs. After P.K. Yonge recorded the innings first out, Lindsey Wiggins hit a hard single up the middle to score courtesy runner Taylor Crawford Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 11B Bradford and Union County extended their seasons and will play for the championships in their respective district tournaments, while Keystone Heights saw its season come to an end in its district semifinals.

Leading up to Easter in Lake Butler, Victory Christian Center and First Christian Church both gave a special communion presentation of the Last Supper based on Leonardo da Vincis famous painting by the same name. First Christian reenacted the painting by giving a live portrayal of it for its Holy Week Communion Service open to the community. Senior Minister Art Peterson narrated the drama, giving a brief biographical sketch of Jesus twelve disciples as each respective man entered to take his place, and then recounted the scene as recorded in the Bible. Jesus then broke bread and passed it around along with the one cup from which each man drank. At one point when Peterson repeated the section in Scripture when Jesus says that someone will betray him that night and the disciples wondered who it was, the men froze in their respective poses to reenact da Vincis painting. They held that for several minutes while those in attendance took communion. Victory Christian performed a live dramatization of the painting, having each man describe the respective disciple he represented. Next, Pastor Patrick Maxwell, who portrayed Jesus, appeared on stage and described the events of that evening long ago and washed the disciples feet. The men then served communion to those in attendance and Maxwell went on to preach. They finished with some a cappella congregational singing. The Union County Public Library held its weekly preschool storytime, focusing this time on Easter, of course. The library welcomed over 50 children and their parents during two programs on Thursday. Activities included many Easter-related songs, stories, crafts and games. Some of the childrens favorite activities included making their own Easter bunny ear headbands, followed by bunny hopping around the library to hunt for candy-filled Easter eggs. Afterward, the children retreated back to the party room for some Easter treats and finished the party off with an egg toss, where children lined up waiting to toss their eggs through the mouth of the bunny. The librarys Tennille Brannen described it as an eggstraordinary day. On Friday, the annual Good Friday Service was held at First Christian, with ministers across the county each presenting on one of The Seven Last Words of Jesus from the Cross. That included Peterson along with Associate Minister David Tompkins, Maxwell, Larry Clyatt from Harmony Free Will Baptist Church, Paul OSteen and Tim Rose from Sardis Baptist Church in Worthington Springs and Daniel Search from First United Methodist Church in Lake Butler. Buddy Ball from Sardis led the invocation. First Christians Randy DeShong led congregational singing and Katie Monaghan played piano and sang the song titled Why by Nichole Nordeman. Even students from Union County High School attended as part of Narie Gibsons and Julie Densons World Religions class. On Saturday, the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 10082 hosted its Community Annual Easter Egg Hunt where they also served lunch and handed out goodie bags. Sanderson Christian Revival Center had a clothes giveaway, followed by an Easter egg hunt. On Easter, Sardis Baptist held a sunrise service and a regular worship service. The annual Community Sonrise Service was once again held down by the lake at the Lakeside Park pavilion. Afterward, everyone was invited to breakfast at First Christian, packing the Fellowship Hall. The church then had Sunday School and a regular worship service. The day before they enjoyed their annual Bike Ride and Easter Egg Hunt at the Arnold Farm, with lunch served afterward. In spite of inclement weather at times that offered some unseasonably cool temperatures and rain, a spirit of celebration and unity was evident throughout Union County. Residents celebrate Easter in a variety of special ways At the library Caylee Harrison smiles with all her Easter goodies. live portrayal of Leonardo da Supper: (L-r) Vincent Alex Brown as Thaddaeus and Clinton Freeman as Simon the Zealot. Rufus Jefferson and Thomas BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Last week the City of Lake Butler installed an old railroad crossing signal as part of its growing historic district. The new addition is located next to the depot building near the beginning of the Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail. It joins an old corn crib/hen house donated by Bobby and Regina Parrish, with other items from antiquity to be added to the growing collection in the future. (Former city employee) Ricky Jenkins salvaged the blinking light, City Manager Dave Mecusker said, and he put it in the Maintenance Department, and it just got put in the back room. And its probably been in the back room for, good grief, Id say 40 years. Director for Utilities Hardy Clyatt gave Mecusker a tour about a year-and-a-half ago and brought it to his attention. And we thought it would be nice to put it up in the historical section of the park, Mecusker said. I do think its a neat thing for the citizens to see, as far as part of this areas heritage. Bill McGill will be donating a sugar cane grinder that will be set up in the next month or two, Mecusker said. The railroad signal now sits just a few blocks down from where it was originally installed across from Spires IGA and Skips Deli at the old crossing there on Southwest Sixth Avenue between State Road 100 and Southwest First Street. The railroad rails and ties were removed in the mid-1990s from the NorfolkSouthern Railroad right-of-way that runs through Putnam, Clay, Bradford and Union counties, where the 47-mile state trail is being developed. LB installs historic railroad crossing signal by depot Florida chooses replacement for FCAT Common Core opponents express concern over new testing company BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor Last month the Florida Department of Education announced that it chose a replacement for FCAT (Floridas Comprehensive Assessment Test) 2.0, with testing to be conducted by the not-for-profit American Institutes for Research (AIR) beginning this next school year. Common Core-aligned English and math exams developed by a coalition of states were initially supposed to replace the FCAT. Those tests are being developed by PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers). However, Florida pulled back from both Common Core and its attached tests, meaning the state needed an FCAT replacement. PARCC will actually have its new assessments also available this coming school year. However, AIR is providing Floridas FCAT replacement. The new assessment will measure each childs progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input, stated Education Commissioner Pam Stewart in FDOEs release. This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize flexibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our students to analyze and think. The Florida Standards are based on the Common Core State Standards. The release gave some history on the test changes: Using input from the summit, Governor (Rick) Scott issued Executive Order 13-276, which initiated Floridas departure from the national PARCC consortium as its fiscal agent, to ensure that the state would be able to procure a test specifically designed for Floridas needs without federal intervention. Governor Scott also set out eight goals for the new assessment to ensure the best outcome for Florida students. Among those eight objectives were an emphasis on prompt reports of results, no significant change in testing time for students, no significant increase in costs of the assessments and an assurance that testing dates be as close as possible to the end of the school year to maximize learning opportunities. This assessment meets those goals. Governor Scott also requested additional public comments about the standards, which resulted in public hearings around the state and thousands of comments from Floridians. In February 2014, the State Board of Education approved changes to the standards that reflected the input. The new Florida Standards for mathematics

With the new and more rigorous standards, a new assessment was needed to measure student progress. State Board of Education Chairman Gary Chartrand praised the choice too, stating in the release, The selection of our new assessment tool is a critical step forward. Florida students will be assessed on their knowledge of the Florida Standards, which will prepare them for success in college, careers and in life. Some, however, vehemently disagree with the selection of AIR. In response to FDOEs announcement, Florida Stop Common Core Coalition (FSCCC) stated in an email newsletter to supporters, Pam Stewart has made an appallingly bad choice for the state test to replace the FCAT. Not only does the American Institutes for Research (AIR) do major behavioral/mental health testing and research and is developing the test for the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), but they are very involved in developing briefs and other information promoting acceptance of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) lifestyle for elementary age school children. There is a basis for those claims based on AIRs website, where it states, AIR is one of the worlds largest behavioral and social science research and evaluation organizations. It also promotes a toolkit called Standards of Care for LGBT Youth: What can communities and systems do to create positive outcomes for LGBT youth? AIR has identified key concepts, data, and research as well as the connection between stigma and well-being for LGBT children and youth. This action planning tool assists organizations in identifying prioritized strategies, goals, and actions towards implementing these standards of care and incorporating them into day-to-day practice. Additionally, it states, AIRs Human and Social Development program develops knowledge and understanding about LGBT youth that takes account of their experiences and needs. AIR also enhances opportunities for the healthy development, well-being, and safety of LGBT children, youth and their families by providing workforce training and technical assistance to service providers across systems addressing behavioral health, child welfare, education, juvenile justice and homelessness. In response, AIR spokesman Larry McQuillan told PolitiFact Florida that the group does not promote issues. We are not an advocacy group, McQuillan said. AIR is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization. We do educational assessment, research, health policy research and communication and international development. We have supported many states by providing highquality assessments of their specific state standards. FDOE spokesman Joe Follick also told PolitiFact, AIR was chosen for their ability to provide an assessment that aligns with Floridas standards. Not anything else. Even Senate President Don Gaetz, a Republican, supports Commissioner Stewart and is confident that AIR will develop a Florida-specific assessment that will test students based on Florida-specific standards, spokeswoman Katie Betta told PolitiFact. Another concern is whether or not the new test is ready for prime time. It has only been field-tested in Utah and without similar demographics. However, some items on the tests have been field-tested there, but the two states will have different tests. The field-testing informs the vendor with whether or not items are appropriate items, and so we feel very confident in the ability of their field-testing to inform their items moving forward with us, Stewart said during a media conference call. Sample items will be available for review later this spring for parents and students to see the kinds of questions that will be included. Finally, test costs are also a concern. The estimate for the new PARCC assessment, if Florida had gone with it, is about $29.50 per student for reading, writing and math exams in third through 11 grades, according to StateImpact Florida. During the media conference call, Stewart said an apple-to-apples comparison puts the AIR test at $18.38 per student. However, the total per-student cost will actually be $34.23 which includes the additional Florida End-ofCourse (EOC) Assessments currently administered and in developmentAlgebra 1, Biology 1, Geometry, U.S. History and Civics. The FDOE website states that the cost per scored test, meaning the FCAT, for the 2011-12 school year was $13.37, and the total cost per student was $30.59, which includes the EOCs. With about 2.7 million students in public schools, that puts the total annual cost at over $92.4 million per year to assess students and schools on their progress. No name has been drafted yet for the new test.

Whether youre at home, at work and on the go, authentic faith is being practiced. We believe the Bible teaches that the hub of faith development is not the church but its the home, or the family (Deuteronomy 6). As effective as church programs are, no pastor, no ministry and no program has nearly the impact and influence that moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas have on the next generation. Home is where your worldview is formed. Home is where you are who you really are. Its a continual work-inprogress but it is a blessed and wonderful journey that were on, bridging the gap between faith and family. Not long ago First Baptist Church of Lake Butler purchased the building that housed Roberts Insurance and the Union County Times, both of which are now located in the former Maines Insurance offices. We are now executing our vision for the building, and the name truly says it all: The Bridge. The idea behind The Bridge is that First Baptist is committed to partnering with families to bridge faith and family. We have three ways in which were setting out to bridge the gap. 1. Get the Gospel. The Bridge will house youth Bible fellowship groups every Sunday, and youth worship services every Wednesday. On Sunday mornings, our Bible fellowship groups are studying The Gospel Project, which systematically works through Scripture exalting Jesus and the Gospel in every lesson from Genesis to Revelation. Every Wednesday night we have a youth worship service where we worship corporately together. We fellowship, and the word of God is preached and life application is given. These two weekly events are our main efforts to get the Gospel into our young people. 2. Gather round one table. The second piece of The Bridge is to gather round one table. This will be a new and exciting piece that the building, The Bridge, will service. What I mean by gather round one table is simply gathering students, parents and other believers in the church and rubbing elbows together, experiencing life together and passing on an example of Christlike living. The reason this building is not simply the youth building, is because the very last thing that we want is to put our students on an island and separate them from the rest of the church. I will be very intentional to include on our church calendar events that will bring families and the church family together to The Bridge such as fifth-quarters after home football games. Id love to see our students able to come to The Bridge and bring their unchurched friends with their families for games, fellowship, food and more after games. Family movie nights and game nights are just a few things Id love to see The Bridge serve the families at First Baptist and the community so that we may gather round one table to bridge our faith and family. 3. Grow together. Growing together is simply connecting parents and students, grandmas and grandpas and students to whats being taught. Its my vision that what happens in The Bridge will be able to equip parents and engage parents in the faith in development of their children. This is a continual work-in-progress. An example is a family resource center in the front lobby of The Bridge, where at any time you can help yourself to various resources, articles, books and other things that will equip the parent and grandparent to continue to develop faith in their students. The building will soon begin a complete overhaul to facilitate our purposes for it. We hope to be in The Bridge by mid-summer. FBC building a bridge between faith and family First Baptist Church bought the former Roberts Insurance building next to its current Extension Service celebrates 100 years BY BASIL BACTAWAR County Extension Dir. & Agent This year on May 8 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Smith-Lever Act, which established the Cooperative Extension Service. In Florida, Extension allows us all to benefit from the research and education of our land-grant universities, the University of Florida and Florida A&M University. UF/IFAS Extension has improved the lives of Floridians in many ways. If youve learned how to choose healthier foods, conserve water, save money or start a butterfly garden, chances are you learned it from Extension. If youve ever been to a 4-H camp or gotten help from a Master Gardener, you know Extension. On our 100th Anniversary, UF/IFAS Extension in Union County is proud of its accomplishments, but we look continually towards the future, finding solutions to the challenges we Floridians will face in the next 100 years and sharing them to make life healthier, happier and more prosperous for you.

They replace the wire sensors used to change traffic lights. They are replacements for the wire sensors which are currently cut into the roadway surface. When the wires fail, the signal does not detect the traffic correctly, and drivers experience longer wait times, said Sam Middleton in an email. He is a traffic signal systems engineer at FDOTs Lake City Traffic Operations. He said the FLIR cameraa similar technology used in search and rescue operationssenses the heat of the vehicle (engine, tires, exhaust, headlights) and tells the computer controlling at the intersection that one or more vehicles is waiting for the signal. The neighboring city of Gainesville uses FLIR technology at various intersections. The technology has been around for many years in military and law enforcement applications, Middleton added, but has just recently been adapted for use on the transportation system. It is one more tool the FDOT has for detecting traffic to actuate traffic signals. As with any tool, it is not a one size fits all and it will be employed when the need warrants their installation, he said. In Lake Butlers case, FLIR is a much-needed answer to a continuing maintenance issue with the current wire sensors. Due to the large amount of heavy truck traffic on State Road 121 and State Road 100, maintaining the wires at this intersection is a constant task, Middleton said. They were lasting about six months at a time before they required replacement. In other locations, the wires may last over 10-plus years before requiring replacement. He added that the current wires will not be removed, but only deactivated. A milling and resurfacing project is scheduled for both state roads in the near future and the loops will be removed permanently at that time. And time will tell if the new solution does a better and quicker job of changing the traffic lights.

(See related story.) When you share a story (about cancer), it makes an impact, whether youve gone through it, youve survived it, youve lost someone or youre caring for someone, Cleesen said.

Were just imagining the BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer American Cancer Society statistics show that the cancer death rate for men and women combined decreased by 20 percent from 1991 through 2010. Good news, to be sure, but according to Cancer Statistics 2014, which was published in the American Cancer Society journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, it is estimated that 585,720 people in the U.S. will die from cancer in 2014. It is estimated that 1,665,540 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2014. What the numbers show is that even though there is hope for those who are diagnosed with cancer, cancer is still a prevalent disease that claims a lot of lives. The quest for a cure continues, and it is that end goal that keeps people walking around the Bradford High School track throughout the night during the annual Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

Laura Cleesen of Starke has been told she cant finish the fight and become cancer free, but that does not make her any less of a fighter. I may have bad days, but Im going to be here as long as I can, Cleesen said. As I say to everybody, I may not win the war, but Im going to win every battle until that point. Thats just my mindset. Cleesen has battled through two bouts of breast cancer and an occurrence of uterine cancer. In March 2013, the discovery of a small lump on the back of her neck led to a diagnosis of nonHodgkin lymphoma. Doctors have told Cleesen she will never again hear the words, Youre cancer free. The cancer is spreading throughout her body, but that hasnt stopped Cleesen from wearing a smile on her face, putting her best foot forward and trying to be an encouragement an encouragement to her family, friends and even those who dont know her.

Auto Accidents Work Injuries Headaches Neck and Back PainBack & Neck Pain Clinic Jo es Tires 13761 South US 301 Starke(1/2 mile south of walmart) 964-(8473) led to her first-ever involvement with the American Cancer Society fundraiser. Cleesen was asked to give a survivors speech at this years kickoff party. It was very hard to give that speech because I was never open, Cleesen said, adding, When it was done, I knew I made an impact on some people. They told me it helped them to realize things. If I can do that, then Im accomplishing something. With this Relay, if I can reach out and just help one person through it emotionally, then I know that Im doing OK. Cleesen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. It was a shock, of course. Cleesen said the diagnosis left her wanting to crawl in a hole, but at the same time, she didnt want to let the disease slow her down. Her approach to chemotherapy, for example, was to undergo treatment on Fridays so she could rest on weekends, be green on Mondays and then be able to go to work on Tuesdays. In fact, she told her boss that if she ever called in sick, he was to give her a hard time about it and not to ever let her give up. I was bound and determined I was going to continue working, Cleesen said. Cleesen, though, because of that determination, was holding all of her emotions in check. When the chemotherapy caused her hair to start falling out, she called her boss to say she wouldnt be in to work that day. Her boss response was to go pick Cleesen up, take her to her office and give her the OK to have the emotional outburst she was needing. He physically came and got me, put me in his carin my pajamastook me to my office, shut the blinds in my office, shut the door and looked at me and said, Just cry. You havent cried. You just keep going like everythings OK. I let it go. I just let it out. Then he took me home, and I CLEESEN Continued from 1B was OK. Cleesen said eventually hearing those words, Youre cancer free, was a blessing, but she would later be diagnosed with breast cancer again. She wanted to have a double mastectomy done, but doctors advised against that, saying that the surgery was too risky due to the fact Cleesen has an enlarged heart due to cardiomyopathy. It turned out to be a true definition of a catch 22. Having a double mastectomy was a risk, but not having it was a bit of a risk as well. In March 2012, Cleesen was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She said it was the result of cancerous breast tissue. At first, Cleesen didnt suspect the return of cancer. She has diverticulitis and suspected that was what was causing her stomach to swell. I kept getting bigger and bigger in that area, Cleesen said. I actually looked like I was pregnant. As it turned out, Cleesen had three tumors the size of baseballs in her uterus. It was one of those here-wego-again moments, but Cleesen said she thought of how many other ways she had been blessed in life and decided there was nothing to do but keep fighting. That mindset was severely tested a short time later with the discovery of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Cleesen had large, cancerous masses on her neck and on the lymph nodes in her throat. She also had a 6.2-centimeter mass under her tongue toward where her tonsils wouldve been. She had all the masses surgically removed with the exception of the one under her tongue. Cleesen said shes not taking a chance getting that removed because she doesnt want to lose the ability to be able to talk to her two grandchildren. Family has kept Cleesen going, whether its grandchildren Courtni and Camden, children Mark, Amber, Larry and Ashley, future son-in-law Ross or her husband of more than 20 years, Lawrence. She recalled how a doctor told her she wouldnt be around to see the high school graduation of her daughter Amber. Well, Amber, who is 20, has since graduated. If Cleesen has her way, shell be around to see 15-year-old Ashley graduate. However, she has no control over the future. She just focuses her energies on each day as it comes around. You know how people say, Dont count the days, make the days count? Thats basically what I do, Cleesen said. I just enjoy every day. I have my kids, my grandkids, my husband and my friends. Basically, I just pour my heart into all of that. I cant worry about tomorrow because its not here yet. I just live every day. There are bad days, of course. Cleesen said there are some days she doesnt want to get up out of bed. She thinks of others, though, and says to herself that even though her problems may look bad, there is someone out there with worse problems. Ive got to get up, Cleesen BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer A special recognition of Jerry Whitehead and the dedication of a new monument area devoted to fallen Bradford County lawenforcement personnel will highlight this years BradfordUnion Law-Enforcement Memorial Service, which will be hosted this year by the Starke Police Department on Thursday, May 1, at 6:30 p.m. at the Starke Square (538 E. Call St.) between S.R. 100 and S.R. 230. The annual service pays tribute to the officers who gave their lives during service to their respective areas: six in Union County and 19 in Bradford County. Starke Police Capt. Barry Warren said attending the service is a great way for people to express their thanks to those who did so much for the place they call home. Basically, these are the people who made our community as safe as it is today, Warren said. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead, Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith and Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson will pay tribute to Jerry Whitehead, who died Dec. 18, 2013, after a brief illness. He was the longestserving sheriff in the state, having been elected in 1984 and serving up until the time of his death. Its a great opportunity to recognize him, Warren said. Also planned is the official dedication of a monument area to the 19 Bradford County lawenforcement officers who gave their lives in service. The area, which will include 13 benches, consists of a memorial stone placed in honor of each officer as well as 18 palm trees planted in their memories. (One tree represents both father and son George W. Epperson and Henry W. Epperson, who were both former sheriffs.) Warren said the idea for such a physical memorial has been in the works for approximately 10 years. Thanks to the support of donors in the community, the idea has become a realitya reality that has been overdue, Warren said, pointing out that the first officer killed in the line of duty was Dec. 25, 1885, while the last was July 26, 1995. Its time, Warren said. Its beyond time for these people who served their last call in service to this community. Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead will perform the roll call for those who gave their lives in service to Union County: Union deputies Hal Croft (May 23, 1961) and Ronald Jackson (May 23, 1961), Department of Corrections officers Paul Jordan (Jan. 24, 1976) and John S. Dennard (May 5, 1983), Union deputy Renee D. Azure (Aug. 6, 2002) and Department of Corrections officer Adam Sanderson (March 6, 2009). Bradford County Sheriffs Department Capt. Brad Smith and Lawtey Correctional Institution Warden Barry Reddish will perform the roll call for Bradford Countys fallen officers: sheriffs George W. Epperson (Dec. 25, 1885), Henry W. Epperson (Jan. 20, 1890) and David Levy Alvarez (May 30, 1891), Bradford deputy Andrew J. Kite (Feb. 21, 1899), Starke Marshall Jeff Jones (Nov. 19, 1903), sheriffs Everett E. Johns (Dec. 6, 1905), Joe A. Bennett (Aug. 9, 1907) and J.W. Langford (Aug. 23, 1912), Bradford deputy W.T. Andrews (Feb. 1, 1914), Constable Richard Bennett (March 30, 1925), Starke officer Leonard E. Colson (Dec. 26, 1951), Florida State Prison Assistant Superintendent James G. Godwin (April 4, 1955), Starke officer William Burtis Jackson (April 20, 1956), Department of Corrections officers Howard D. Starling (July 2, 1964), Julie Gabor Caddell (Sept. 22, 1974) and Richard Burke (Ot. 12, 1980), Bradford deputy Hesley Delmar Griffis (May 13, 1992) and Department of Corrections officer Jerome A. Williams (July 26, 1995). Starke to host Bradford-Union Law-Enforcement Memorial May 1 said. I cant feel sorry for myself, and I dont like people to feel sorry for me. I dont want sympathy. Sympathy, no, but support is another matter. Cleesen said it really means a lot to open an email, for example, and read, Good morning, beautiful, or, How are you today? What cancer patients need, more than anything, is support, Cleesen said. With that in mind, Cleesen tries to put on a smile every day and do what she can to be an encouragement to others. Thats why shes looking forward to Relay for Life. She wants to have that positive impact on people who have cancer, even though she, too, has the disease. Theres a reason why Im still here, Cleesen said. Thats the way I look at it. Theres a reason why this happened to me. Theres a reason why Im still fighting, and Ill continue to fight.

Bankat 6 p.m. at the track. Then, once the Relay begins with an opening ceremony that will feature Amber ONeal performing the national anthem, survivors and their caregivers will walk the first lap. Once those survivors get on the track, theres usually not a dry eye, Lee said. Another emotional moment is the luminaria ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at 9:30 p.m. The ceremony consists of paper bags, containing lighted votive candles, placed around the track, bearing the names of survivors, those who are currently battling cancer or those who have lost their lives to cancer. The track stadium lighting will be turned off so that only the glow of the candles is visible as the names of those the bags represent are read aloud. The rest of the event will consist of various themed laps (Mardis Gras, pajamas, hula hoop, super hero, etc.), a scavenger hunt, a Zumba class, a Miss-ter Relay contest, a dance competition and other fun activities, as well as musical performances by Melissa Mann, Shelby Clark, Jessica Thornton and Lindsey Murphy. You also do not have to be a member of a team or a survivor/ caregiver to attend. People are encouraged to show up because there will be several fundraisers going on at the Relay. Many teams will be serving up delicious items, including such fare as fruit kabobs, boiled peanuts, cotton candy, Teriyaki wings and chicken and rice. The Community State Bank team will even be roasting a whole pig. If you go out and eat on Friday night, come down to the track and eat with us, Lee said. As of April 17, 38 fundraising teams (178 participants) had registered to take part in Relay for Life. Though fundraising takes place at the event, it is really a yearlong effort. Thats why teams had already raised $31,000 as of April 17. Community State Bank, for example, had raised more than $5,000 with its Pua the Purple Pig campaign, while D. Mosley Trucking, which joined the cause for the first time a few weeks prior to last years Relay, hosted a golf tournament that raised $4,500. Every year, Maria Stephenson raises the most money as an individual, and this year looks to be no different. As of April 15, she had raised $4,087. The fundraising effort doesnt begin and end with Relay for Life, which ties in with the American Cancer Societys mission this yearFinish the Fight. What that means is we want to encourage everyone who is raising funds for this to finish the fight through Aug. 31 when our fiscal year ends, Lee said. A lot of people think the fundraising ends at the event, but it doesnt. We go on. Last years Relay for Life and various fundraisers raised approximately $72,000, with approximately $9,000 being raised solely at Relay for Life. Both totals were record numbers, and the goal is to do even better this year. Lee said this years total fundraising goal is $90,000. Participating in Relay for Life and raising funds for the American Cancer Society is near and dear to Lees heart. Lee, who lost her mother to lung cancer in 1999, said many people with cancer are not benefiting from the various services and programs the American Cancer Society makes available. The one thing I have found is a lot of people who have been diagnosed with cancer are not aware of the American Cancer Society, Lee said. This will mark Lees sixth year of involvement with Relay for Life. Her fifth year, when she served as team development chair, had one especially memorable moment. Lee was contacted by a woman who had heard about Relay and was seeking more information about it. The two communicated back and forth before Lee met the lady in person at the event. After the event, the woman told Lee she had a wonderful time and said, You dont know how that changed my life. I was homebound. I was just giving up. I wasnt getting out. Its just completely changed my life. Moments like that are what make participation in Relay for Life so special. If you dont touch but one person, its worth it, Lee said.

Wear, show off purple Friday, April 25 The city of Starke has issued a proclamation to Paint the Town Purple on Friday, April 25, in support of the BradfordKeystone Heights Relay for Life, which will take place from 7 p.m. on April 25 until 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 26.

Dear Editor: Justice Joseph Story stated in his Commentaries on the Constitution 3: 1833 the truth that, The militia is the natural defence of a free country against (1) sudden foreign invasions, (2) domestic insurrections, and (2) domestic usurpations of power by rulers. The Bundy Ranch Standoff is an example of #3 above. This is where the IAP stands in this fiasco? We stand with Cliven Bundy, who said: I dont recognize them (the federal government) having any jurisdiction or authority over this land. In the United States the people are the government; their united voice is the only sovereign that should rule, and only power that should be obeyed. The fact that a desert tortoise is endangered doesnt change this fact. The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) usurpation in forcing the Bundys to pay for land that has been in his family for 140 years doesnt change this fact. For those of us who still labor under the conviction that the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, it must be observed that the only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations. Thats it! All other law enforcement matters are the purview of the individual states, according to the Tenth Amendment. Unfortunately, for most of the Twentieth Century the federal government has demanded more and more power and authority that it does not constitutionally possess. And, for the most part, the individual states have sheepishly done little to resist, not to mention (in this case) County law enforcement. All of which has led to the events that are now playing out in Clark County, Nevada.

Just wanted to take a minute to express an opinion and offer a compliment to the folks of Bradford County. Ive been coming down you folks way for more than forty years and I intended to write this letter last year but like most other of my good intentions, I procrastinated, got busy and it got away from me. So I will do it now while Im thinking about it. With all due respect, I believe you folks are blessed in many ways. To name a few, the people I know and run into around the ball fields, neighborhoods and generally out and about are good, honest, hard workin, straight shootin, friendly, country lovin, god fearin solid BC children show hope for future Independent American Party issues statement on ranch standoff Davidians in Texas, and I did not speak out; then, they came for the Cliven Bundy family in Nevada, and I did not speak out; then, they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out. Independent American Party citizens. Your children are mannerly and respectful. Its not like that everywhere you go. I think one of the reasons you are blessed is because you work at it. Over the years Ive had the great pleasure and opportunity to watch many of your children grow through t-ball/little league to high school JV and Varsity teams. I have great respect for the parents, the coaches and all the others that work long and hard to make this happen for the children. I especially wanted to send my love, respect and best wishes to the boys and girls on the Bradford County High School Tornado baseball and softball teams. I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and know you and watch you compete and excel with great success on and off the field. Thanks for the memories!! To the folks that havent seen the teams play and compete, I would highly recommend it. As Tony the Tiger says, theyre great, and its money well spent. In closing I would say, that to some of us it appears that the direction our country is taking is worrisome at best and frightening at worst but I take some comfort and optimism when I see and meet some of your children. Raising them up respectful and with the values that made this country a great country reflects greatly on you. Thank you....and thank you for listening to an old man ramble... May god bless and keep you and the children safe. May God Bless America...

Williston would go up 5-0 before hanging on for a 7-6 win. Rogers and Worrell batted 2-for-3 and 2-for-2, respectively, while freshman Seth Hendricks went 2-for-3 to help Union rally. The Tigers had the tying run on third base in the last inning, but Dukes said the Williston shortstop made a great play on a ball that wouldve normally been a hit in most cases. The Tigers responded to the loss by winning all 10 of their remaining games, including a 6-5 win over Williston. That second matchup against Williston saw Union take a 6-0 lead into the seventh, but an approximately 30-minute injury timeout after two Williston outfielders collided seemed to take something away from his team, Dukes said. Williston scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh, but Lovelace entered the game and did a good job on the mound, Dukes said. Lovelace forced the Devils to hit a couple of ground balls before Williston hit a dribbler back to the mound for what would be the games final out. Worrell started the game, giving up one hit and striking out five in five innings. At the plate, Joyner was 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Lovelace was 2-for-4 with an RBI. After avenging their only loss, the Tigers won their final five games by an average score of 14-3. They defeated Interlachen 7-4, Bell 10-5, St. Francis 25-0, Hamilton County 9-7 and Dixie County 17-1. In the season finale against Dixie, Rogers and Joyner were 4-for-4 and 4-for-5, respectively, while sophomore Garrett Williams was 3-for-4. Worrell was 2-for-2, while Driggers and sophomore Dalton Teston were each 2-for-3. Also contributing to the best season Dukes can ever remember were sophomore Kyle Davis and freshmen Matthew Jobin, Stephen Milner, Garrett Ritch, Jarrett Shadd and Dylan Thornton. There were not many games that all 14 did not in some way contribute, Dukes said. The Tigers also excelled in the classroom, with each player maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA. Half the team had weighted GPAs of 4.0 or higher. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a season to be remembered and a good sign for the future of Union County High School baseball as the junior varsity team went 12-1, with its lone loss coming by one run against Williston. Our varsity program certainly has some promise, Union head coach Bret Dukes said. The Tigers scored an average of 11 runs per game, while allowing an average of just four per game. Their last gamea 17-1 win over Dixie County was a good way to put the icing on the cake of an unbelievable season, Dukes said. Offensively, sophomore Willie Rogers and freshman Phillip Joyner provided a spark, batting .520 and .470, respectively, in the lead-off position and numbertwo positions. Hitting and getting on base is almost contagious, Dukes said. Though Rogers and Joyner led the team, Dukes said it was hard to really single out any player from the rest of the lineup, which batted a cumulative .360. We were so consistent in our lineup, Dukes said. It did not matter who was coming up. You had confidence the kid was going to get it done. Dukes said the Tigers had several players who could throw strikes, including freshman Taz Worrell, who led the team. Worrell went 4-0 and had a 2.30 ERA. Dukes, though, singled out freshman J.C. Lovelace for providing consistency as one of several middle relievers as well as sophomore Casey Driggers, who got in a zone the last couple of weeks of the season and pitched lights out. The Tigers opened the season by defeating Interlachen 10-5 and followed that with a 6-3 win over. In their third game, however, the Tigers got off to a slow start and committed six errors in the first two innings. Visiting The recent large bass caught in Kingsley Lake have created a lot of talk among local fishermen. This is the second year in a row that 14-plus-pound bass have been caught in Kingsley. In 2013, Len Andrews pulled into a dock on the western bank of the lake and weighed one that went over 14 pounds. Afterward, he released the fish unharmed. This year, two fish over 14 pounds have been landed, weighed and released. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission accepted the 14-pound, 9-ounce bass that Brooks Morrell caught, placing him at the top of the FWC Trophy Catch Program. Brooks indicated that he has landed nine bass over 9 pounds, four over 10 pounds and two over 13 poundsall in Kingsley Lake. He is also aware of three others that have been caught that were over 13 pounds. Kingsley Lake is no stranger to large bass. In 1967, Benny Zoltoski was trolling around Kingsley with two bass in his livewell that weighed about 10 pounds each. However, when he passed what was then Kingsley Beach and headed to the Officers Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 5B Fins, Fur & Tails and present Club at Camp Blanding, he had a huge hit, which he thought was a hang-up, until the line-water intersection began to move outward, indicating that the hook was moving toward the surface. Making a long story short, it was not a hang-up, but a 16-pound, 6-ounce bass that was eventually mounted, hanging on the wall of Stricklands Store for years. The history of big bass in North Central Florida does not center entirely around Kingsley Lake, however. Buddy Wright, a current resident of Keystone Heights who has always fished from a 12-foot jon boat and has never fished in a bass tournament, was having a good day on the St. Johns River south of Palatka in April 1987. He had a couple of nice catches under his belt that weighed over 5 pounds each. His last catch of the day caught on a Bill Norman Weed Walker lurewas a monster that weighed in at 18 pounds, 13 ounces. Unfortunately, the fish lost a lot of roe before its first weight on a certified, accurate scale. The fish was subsequently frozen and thawed out for another certified weight. However, the FWC would not recognize the fish because a wildlife officer did not get to Wrights home until two weeks after notification and after the fish was frozen, thus depriving Wright of a Florida record. All was not lost, though, because the International Game Fish Association did recognize the catch as a world record for a 16-pound-line weight catch, and Wright has that plaque on his wall beside the replica. Believe it or not, the largest bass landed in Bradford, Clay or Union counties, according to this research and in recent history, came from Brooklyn Lake in Keystone. In 1966, Forest and Stream magazine, which later became Field and Stream, published an article about an 18-pound, 2-ounce bass caught by Hugh Paul. Though there have been larger bass caught, the gold standard for record largemouth bass is still the 1932 George Perry bass that weighed 22 pounds, 4 ounces, with a 32.5-inch length and 28.5-inch girth. Manabu Kurita caught a 22-pound, 4.97-ounce bass in Japan on July 2, 2009. (Despite bettering the Perry bass by almost an ounce, IGFA rules consider the catch a tie with the Perry bass.) In 2006, Mac Weakley foul hooked and landed a 25-pound, 0.01-ounce bass that was photographed, weighed and released. Paul Nosca has done a significant amount of research on the 25 largest bass ever caught, and he makes several good observations about record largemouth bass. Many of the larger Florida bass have been very long and comparatively light in weight. Bill Whipple caught what is considered to be the world record longest bass in 2002 on Lake Toho. The bass was 33 inches in length, but weighed only 14 pounds and 6 ounces. Certainly bass caught in the spawn and full of roe would have a significant weight advantage over fish caught while not spawning. Noscas research on the largest 25 bass ever caught can be found online under his name. Fishing outlook Despite some reports to the contrary, especially on Newnans Lake, the specks should be moving to deeper water as they finish their spring spawn. Shellcrackers and bluegills should be swapping places with the specks as they prepare for their first spawn. The initial spawn for the shellcrackers will be their primary bedding season for the year, while the bluegills will bed continuously throughout the summer, especially around full and new moons. The big fish and comprehensive weights at the local tournaments have shown a little decline, which would suggest that the bass spawn is beginning to wane somewhat. It might show a brief spark after the traditionally cool Easter, but this yearly phenomena will also soon begin to close ranks. When that occurs, the quest for bream and bass will begin to compete equally for the remainder of the summer. The better part of the sheepshead spawn on both inshore coasts, but the stripped and toothy creatures will continue to hang out around the rocks, oyster bars and bridges over the summer. As the coastal waters warm, pompano and whiting will take up residence on the beaches, and the kings will move in to the beaches in time for the big kingfish tournaments on the east coast. Local tourney results The results of the April 16 Bald Eagle Bass Tournament are: Drew Carroll and Chris Hollingsworth in first, Chris Kadlec and Glenn Barnes in second, Wayne Geiger and Zach Smith in third and Ryan Gonzales with the big fish. The results of the April 17 Sampson Lake Tournament are: Braden Gray and Cason Noles in first, Ronny Pruitt and Matthew Elixson in second and Elixson with the big fish.

When questioned about stacking peanuts he replied, Anyone who grew up in rural Georgia in the 1950s can tell you what that means! He inherited his love of conversing with others from his mother.

Eiserman told the deputy he backed into a car on the other side of a gas pump, but was acting very nervous and stuttering and shaking when he was getting out his drivers license. The deputy asked him to get his registration from the vehicle while he interviewed the owner of the car Eiserman hit. Instead of getting his registration, Eiserman went behind Hungry Howies and jumped in a vehicle parked there with an acquaintance of his in it. He then threw what appeared to the deputy to be a bag of marijuana on the drivers side of the floorboard. The deputy had both men exit the vehicle, retrieved the marijuana from the acquaintance and arrested Eiserman. A later search of his vehicle turned up a brown bag with a over 50 grams of marijuana in it and a pill bottle with cocaine. The acquaintance, Joseph James Lacy, 32, of Lake Butler, was also arrested and charged with resisting an officer, possession of marijuana and possession of drugs, using a vehicle to sell or store drugs and public order crime-using two-way device to facilitate a felony After his arrest, Lacy told deputies that Eiserman was on his way from Starke to meet him to make a deal for the marijuana. When Eiserman had the accident at the gas pump, he called Lacy, and Lacy came to the store. Lacy stated that Eiserman went over and gave him the marijuana right before the deputy arrived. When Lacy was ordered out of the vehicle along with Eiserman, he refused several times to place his hands on the vehicle so the deputy could pat him down for weapons. He only did so after the deputy told him he would be tasered if he didnt cooperate. The deputy also found a bag with cocaine in it during his search of Lacy.

and tie the score at 1-1. Gault, who doubled in two of her previous three at-bats, followed with another single that scored Atkinson. I didnt hit it where I wanted it, but, hey, a single will work for me, said Gault, who was 3-for4. Adkins gave up seven hits and five walks, but pitched the Tornadoes out of several jams. P.K. Yonge (21-3) loaded the bases twice, but failed to score in each instance, and also had innings where it failed to score when it had runners in scoring position with one out. Of Adkins 10 strikeouts, five ended innings. We always say its one versus ninenine players against that one batter, Gault said, but (Adkins) really held us in this game. She worked her heart out. She pitched great. For her part, Adkins said, I just knew I had to focus and concentrate on our main goal, which was to not let them score hardly any runs so we could have a chance to win this game. Gault got the Tornadoes off to a good start when she doubled to lead off the game. However, P.K. Yonge pitcher Kalen McGill retired three straight batters to leave Gault stranded on third. Two hits and a walk loaded the bases for P.K. Yonge with just one out in the bottom of the inning. A baserunning miscue by the Blue Wave afer a forceout at home allowed Bradford to get out of the inning without surrendering a run. P.K. Yonge put two on with no outs in the second, but Adkins recorded two strikeouts as well as holding the two base runners in place after fielding a bunt before throwing to first for an out. Adkins recorded her fifth strikeout of the game to end the third inning after the Blue Wave loaded the bases with two outs. (Adkins) always gives great effort and shines every time she goes on the mound, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Mackenzie Gault capped a three-hit night with a single that scored what would prove to be the winning run in the Bradford High School softball teams 2-1 win over P.K. Yonge in the District 5-4A championship game on April 17 in Alachua. It was the second straight district championship for the Tornadoes (18-7), who played District 6 runner-up South Sumter in a regional quarterfinal game on April 23. Bradford, the tournaments second seed, had lost its previous two matchups with top seed P.K. Yonge by one run each. Its an indescribable feeling, pitcher Ashton Adkins said. Its amazing just knowing that weve struggled with them the past two times. This win meant so much to me and my team. Its just tremendous. The Tornadoes had three hits entering the top of the seventh, but lead-off batter Annie Luke hit a single, while a throwing error on Jaci Atkinsons ground ball to the shortstop gave Bradford two on with no outs. After P.K. Yonge recorded the innings first out, Lindsey Wiggins hit a hard single up the middle to score courtesy runner Taylor Crawford Thursday, April 24, 2014 Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section 11B Bradford and Union County extended their seasons and will play for the championships in their respective district tournaments, while Keystone Heights saw its season come to an end in its district semifinals.
