Tigers are tops with 3 straight titlesThe Lake Butler Middle School softball team made history by winning its third straight Suwannee Middle School Athletic Conference championship. Lake Butler went 13-1 and was the only SMAC team to go undefeated in conference play. The Tigers were dominant, scoring a total of 175 runs, while allowing the opposition to score just 45. Lake Butler went through a three-year conference title drought after winning the SMAC in 2008 with coaches Trudy Andrews, Wayne Andrews and Travis Rimes. Tommy Nettles, who has been the head coach the past four seasons, helped the Tigers once again get back on top, assisted by coaches Vince Tucker in 2012, Taylor Nettles-Bennett and Kevin Lewis in 2013 and Tim Whitehead this season. All three years the teams have had many talented players on them, Nettles said. The latest SMAC championship team, pictured above, is: (front, l-r) Jessica Howard, Kensley Hamilton, Summer Fulgham, Kyler Herndon, Angela Shoup, Josie Godwin, (back, l-r) Tiffany Clark, Teala Howard, Alli Perez, assistant coach Tim Whitehead, Lexi Androlevich, Madelyn Kish, Brooke Waters, head coach Tommy Nettles, Michaila Kennedy, Madison Adams and Kamaya Cohen. BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The Union County Board of County Commissioners is considering a longoverdue pay incentive plan for EMS in hopes of keeping personnel here longer, and avoiding labor shortages and a possible disruption in service. Having such a plan in place is somewhat of a standard amongst licensed and required-training professions. Its not just EMS, said Clerk of Court Kellie Hendricks Connell. Most EMSs, most public safeties do this, but its also a lot of electricians, and a lot of journeymen qualifya lot of licensure-qualified positions have a pay scale in place. Based on tenure and increased education, Commission Chairman Jimmy Tallman added. After last months regular meeting when Andrews announced that five EMS employees had left the previous month and the board discussed reasons why they were leaving for neighboring counties, they considered raises. They also agreed with Interim EMS Director Mitch Andrews to find a solution to keep employees here, who often come to Union County, train, and then go elsewhere for better pay and opportunities. Youre not gonna to say, No ones ever gonna leave, Andrews said. But having this pay scale in place, I mean you can sit here and look at this and go, If Im here next year, this is what Im gonna be making, with that scale. Anybody can look at it. And it gives you somewhere to go. The plan also actually requires higher certification levels than the state requires. The further the scale goes, the further apart and harder it is to get, Andrews said. It goes from 20 hours to 40 hours that you have to get. Thats more than we have to have to recert with the state. So thats going to be a total of 63 hours, I think, that youll have to have. And that only benefits everybody because thats just more knowledge that these guys are gettin. Bradford County has used a similar pay scalethough the amounts are Andrews presents plan to keep EMS employeesCounty fire chief will serve as interim EMS director for another 60 days Andrews explains plan to commissioners. See EMS, 2A RMCs Cindy Callaway is DOC Special Education Aide of the YearThe Reception and Medical Centers Cindy Callaway was recognized as the Special Education Aide of the Year March 6 during a statewide Department of Corrections education conference. Through initiative, Callaway shows her commitment to the DOC and RMC. She was hired as a library technical assistant in February 2011, where she began facilitating a Celebrate Recovery class (a 12-step faith based addiction recovery program) and an Inside-Out Dads class (a parenting program for incarcerated fathers) along with her regular job assignments. The next step in Callaways career was in December 2012 when she became the special education aide, which is a grant position through Tallahassee Community College. She has performed her job with dedication and enthusiasm. Furthermore, Callaway has displayed a positive attitude and works hard to ensure the mission of the department is met. She takes its mission, Changing lives to ensure a safer Florida, seriously and displays the concept of teamwork and positive interaction with other departments, as well as her co-workers and supervisors. Callaways work, primarily, is to help Special Education students that are at RMC. She tutors them in their general education skills and life management skills, with goals of seeing them achieve their GED and be able to live on the outside is positive ways.

Finally, Callaway helps out in her community through volunteering at the local school, and is also continuing her higher education in pursuit of a teaching degree. RMC applauds her accomplishments and continued dedication to the center. Callaway receives award from Assistant Warden Daniel Bannister. BY RENAE ALLEN Science Teacher, UCHS Seven Union County High School and three Lake Butler Middle School students were participants in the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair held in Lakeland, April 8-10. These students were selected as top winners at the Suwannee Valley Regional Science and Engineering Fair held in February. The participants were Holly Tucker, Case Emerson, Ben Riggs, Kent Coburn, Amanda Snyder, Mariah Griner, Amke Jebens, Ashley Harris, Madeline Kish and Alex Perez. Amanda Snyder received a $20 gift card for an outstanding computer science exhibit from the Broward South Regional Science Fair. Mariah Griner received an environmental science award consisting of a $25 cash prize from the Brevard Regional Science Fair. Madeline Kish was the winner of the JT Malesky Award for science enthusiasm, including a $50 cash prize. Ashley Harris won fourth place in Junior Behavioral and Social Sciences. Holly Tucker, a UCHS senior, was the recipient of a variety of awards including first place in the senior botany category for the second year in a row.   Hollys research is a continuing study that she has worked on throughout her high school career. She investigates the role of resin production in various pine species to determine the amount of energy that can be obtained from the resin. She has correlated resin production to the number of resin canals in a tree. By genetically modifying trees to increase the number of resin canals and therefore energy capacity, there could be a substantial impact on the biofuel industry. In addition to first place, Holly was named a Grand Award Winner and given a Best in Fair award. This honor included a $300 award from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, a $1,000 cash scholarship from the Dr. Nelson Ying Scholar Grand Award fund and a $1,200 cash scholarship the Florida Foundation for Future Scientists. In addition to the state science fair, Holly recently presented her project at the Florida Junior Academy of Sciences state meeting in Fort Pierce at Indian River State College. There she received an Outstanding Presenter award from the judges. Holly and fellow UCHS senior Bradley DeShong presented their botanical research to the Master Gardeners of Columbia County last month and were honored by the organizations members with a reception. Both Holly Tucker and Case Emerson will travel to Los Angeles this month to compete at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, May 11-16.10 UC students attend State Science FairTucker and Emerson heading to international fair in LA ABOVE: (L-r) Case Emerson, Madeline Kish, Ashley Harris, Alex Perez, Amanda Snyder, Holly Tucker, Mariah Griner, Kent Coburn, Amke Jebens and Ben Riggs.

However, the Lewis Mann family is actually donating the antique machine, a sugar cane mill We apologize for the error. etc. differentfor about eight years, according to Andrews. The plan enables EMS employees to work toward a higher salary as a reward for longevity and attaining higher levels of certification. On a side note, the board extended Andrews term as interim EMS director another 60 days since it has had trouble assembling a hiring committee to replace former EMS Director Chris Drum, who left in February. Andrews, who also serves as fire chief, was appointed interim EMS director for 60 days while the county finds a replacement. Under the new incentive plan, which Andrews presented to the board at a special meeting on April 21 the base pay would be $8.40 per hour for a probationary, full-time EMT (emergency medical technician) hire, meaning the first six months of employment. And since all EMS employees anywhere are required to work an average of 112 hours every two weekstwo 40-hour weeks plus 32 hours of overtime paid at time-and-a-halfthat pay comes to a total an annual salary of $27,955.20. After six months the pay increases to $8.82 or $29,352.96 per year through Year Two of employment. (In the March 27, 2014, issue of the Union County Times, the annual base pay was computed based on a standard 40-hour workweek, which is not the case for EMS employees, as noted above. They work set days, which amounts to 24 hours on and 48 hours off, on a rotating basis. The 112 hours every two weeks is actually an average cycle of the following: two weeks of 120 hours (five days), plus another two weeks of 120 hours (five days), plus 96 hours (four days). A new, full-time paramedic hire would start at $9.72 per hour or $32,361.64 per year, and move up to $10.21 per hour or $33,979.72 per year after six months. Paramedics are EMTs who have received further training. For comparison, the Florida Professional Firefighters 2012/2013 Wage Survey, dated April 26, 2013, lists an Alachua County firefighter/ EMT starting salary at $32,357 and firefighter/ paramedic at $35,878. It lists Bradford County at $26,990 and $30,326, respectively, for similar positions. The minimum and maximum salaries for EMT and paramedic positions currently listed on Alachua County Board of County Commissioners own website range from EMT/ Driver 56 at $8.76 to $13.59 per hour ($29,153.28 to $45,227.52 per year) at the low end, to Lieutenant/Paramedic 40 at $26.07 to $43.02 per hour ($54,225.60 to $89,481.60 per year) at the high end. Under the plan for Union County, a full-time EMT would be able to top out at $13.03 per hour or $43,367.69. A full-time paramedic could make as much as $15.09 per hour or $50,203.52. Both of those would require two decades of tenure along with 300 contact hours of education over that time. I think this (incentive plan) would definitely give them some motivation to, you know, to be here, Andrews said. Commissioner Wayne Smith noted a difference in workload between the neighboring counties. He said that Union County makes 3.6 calls per 24hour shift, and Alachua County makes 10.7 callsthree times as many. Yeah, and thats the thing: I never expect us to match Alachua County, Andrews responded. But what we have to do is make the working conditions offset the difference in pay, where its a lot more laid back to work here, its a lot nicer to work here than it is Alachua County where its a lot more rigid and youre running a whole bunch of calls So people go, I can go there and make $6,000 more or I can stay here and actually enjoy coming to work every day, Andrews added. And thats what we have to do: Just get to the point where our people go, Well, I stay here, make a little less; I go over there and I hate my job but Im making more money. And almost every one of them would stay here. Every one of them thats left has told me that they would stay here if they could have made a little bit more money. Total expenditures for EMS salaries currently cost the county $809,978.90. Smiths proposed 50-cent raise would cost $837,417.61. The incentive plan would cost $848,072.97. Yet all of those figures are substantially less than EMSs current payroll budget of $1,050,423.00. Andrews recently showed the tentative incentive plan to an employee planning on going to Alachua, in order to get his feedback, and I asked him if that would keep him here. And he said that he was content with that, that he would not apply for Alachuawhich he applied last time and didnt get the job. So that ought to tell you that this scale is on the right track of cutting down our turnover and keeping people here and which, in turn, is going to save you money because youre not having to pay overtime, youre not having the orientation, youre not having everything else that goes along with it, Andrews said. And were getting more experienced medics in the field, Connell added. More experienced medics, you know, Andrews concurred. Somebody asked me a question: So what happens in 10 years when youre paying all these people? Thats what you want! Nothing against the new guys, but if Ive got a choice between three-year medic and a 15-year medic, Im taking a 15-year medic every day Thats what you have to look at, you know. If we got to that point, then weve done our job and thats where everybody needs to be. Andrews further clarified the benefit of an incentive plan over the across-the-board raise currently being considered. In fact, the plan would actually give an automatic and far more substantial raise to most of the current EMS employees than the proposed 50-cent plan because of the class level they would fit intoas high as $1.54 for one. A few recent, probationary hires would see a slight drop in pay till they qualify for the next class level. The plan would, of course, automatically and inherently provide for future raises, which should reduce turnover. It just gives it progression, Andrews said. And thats the biggest thing, is to see, you know, down the future you know you can do this or you can do this, and its spelled out for them right here. And everybody will get a copy when they first start and say, Hey, if I stay here five years I will be making x amount of dollars, and right now they dont know that. I mean its as we were able to provide it, and, you know, you all do the best you can with it and, you know, you do it when you can do it, but then nobody knows. This (incentive plan) would kind of give them some clarity in the future to know, Well, if I stick out another year, Im gonna get x amount of dollars, he said. And the good thing about doing it this way is you can, when it comes budget time, you can literally put everybody where they need to be and know exactly what its gonna be. Regarding the plan, Commissioner Karen Cossey said, Its pretty clear. Others on the board concurred. The board will review the plan, and is also waiting to determine health insurance costs that may change if a new plan is decided on or needed. If the county goes with the plan, it may finance it by raising the special assessment fee of $50 by another $20, which Cossey recommended and Tallman supported. He said it has not been raised since 1988. Justin Stankiewicz, chief financial officer for the clerk of court, said that would bring in $100,000 in additional revenue. Tallman and Cossey both remarked that residents pay more for garbage pickup than for rescue, which seems backward to both of them. I dont think anybody would object going up $20 on the special assessment fee, Cossey said. Tallman added that raising the special assessment might help mitigate a chronic problem thats been going on a long time regarding having adequate personneleven enough to staff the third rescue unitand to make up for the money the county loses every year. For instance, the county transports 2,300 people a year, but loses money on Medicaid patients. At the boards March 17 meeting, Smith said that the county bills over $1 million a year in transport services, but only collects 47 percent of that because most patients are on Medicaidlosing over a half a million dollars a year in revenue. In another way that could finance the incentive plan, Andrews and Connell have both made the case that there could be also be substantial savings in training costs gained through reduced turnover that the new plan is designed to remedy. I was just going to confirm what Mitch ended up saying, Connell said at the boards March 27 meeting, that I had worked those numbers with (former EMS Director Chris Drum), and we estimated somewhere between $170,000 and $190,000 to train. And that was just the orientation, Andrews chimed in at the time. That wasnt for overtime we were paying to fill the holes. So it could have been even more than that. (Andrews said that theyve already spent $23,765.39 in orientation alone, just over halfway through the fiscal yearfrom Oct. 1 of last year through April 21.) Thats correct. That was just the direct training of new employees, Connell added. And thats why I say, it seems counterintuitive to pay more money, but just looking at EMS, give these people a raise as an incentive to stay, it will save us more than it costs us. And in addition to that, well also have more, and better trained, personnel on the vehicles.EMSContinued from 1A Get back issues of the Union County located at 25 East Main Street.

BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At the April 8 meeting of the Raiford Town Council, board members addressed the issue of dwindling funds for the towns current housing modification Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). At the March 11 meeting, Grant Administrator Ronnie Vanzant explained to the council there would not be sufficient funding to assist the remaining three applicants, but through re-bids for lower prices on constructed homes or mobile homes, the first two applicants may be able to benefit, as the third applicant was an alternate. At the April 8 meeting, Vanzant offered the board three options for addressing the remaining applicants needs for funding, and presented information on current mobile home bids which were received in addition to prior bids for site-built homes. Option 1 was to award applicant one with funding to build a new structure on the property. Option 2 was to reject all current bids and ask local contractors to provide lower bids. Option 3 was to purchase mobile homes for the two remaining applicants, since the third one is still an alternate. Board members unanimously passed Council President Rebecca Bryants motion to proceed forward with the first option, awarding applicant number one with funding to build a new structure. Once built, the needs of applicant number two will be evaluated to determine the actions required to address those needs.

BY JAY TUCKER Union County Sr. Forester For the thirteenth year, Jay Tucker, senior county forester with the Florida Forest Service, presented a two-day Arbor Day program to the Lake Butler Middle School sixth grade students. The program included one day in the classroom, where the students learned about the history of Arbor Day and the importance of trees in both our urban and forest setting. The second day, the students participated in a community Arbor Day tree-planting project. For this years project, the students, with help from the county forester and other FFS personnel, a Lake Butler city employee and parents, planted 20 flowering Dogwoods and Shumard Oak around the grounds of City Hall. Over the thirteen years, it is estimated that the sixth graders have planted over 260 trees. The trees for the Arbor Day planting were provided by an Urban and Community Forestry Arbor Day Grant from FFS.

After much prayerful consideration, it is with great humility and optimism that I, Garry Seay, announce my candidacy for the office of Sheriff of Union County. I do not take the tremendous responsibility of this position lightly. I seek the post only because I believe with all sincerity that I am the most qualified for it by virtue of my experience, training and dedication to the citizens of our county. My name is not synonymous with prestige, power, wealth or entitlement. Indeed, my legacy is just the opposite. My parents were poor, hard-working folks who struggled to make ends meet to raise their large family in Worthington Springs. I barely remember my father. He was tragically killed in a sawmill accident when I was just 4 years old, leaving my mother alone to raise nine children. Although she didnt even finish high school and had never worked outside the home, her singleminded determination to keep the family together taught me valuable lessons in hard work, sacrifice and grit. When I turned 14, I began working after school and during summers at the same sawmill where my father had worked. My income helped provide for our family. We did not have the material things that others had. Growing up, I was often embarrassed because of our station in life. Even so, I did have pride in my community. I remember well when Worthington Springs got its first street lights. Before that momentous occasion, it had been an almost pitch black little town with only dim lights shining through windows denoting the homes of the residents there. Such events shaped me, enabled me to look beyond myself and instilled in me a love of our small county and the people in it. I was drafted into the U.S. Army when I was 18 years old. I had rarely been out of Union County at that time. I left Worthington Springs and was eventually deposited in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, for heavy artillery training. My next stop was the front line combat zone in Vietnam. I was wounded in action there. After my tour of duty in Vietnam, I was stationed in Ft. Lewis, Washington, where I served as honor guard on funeral detail of fallen soldiers. I left Union County as a scared, nave boy and returned as a man. My Army service spanned a total of six yearstwo years active service and four years in the Army reserve. This period of my life instilled in me a larger worldview and love of our country. After being honorably discharged from the Army as a sergeant and decorated war veteran, I returned to Union County. Sheriff John Whitehead hired me as a dispatcher in 1973. I furthered my education and training to be promoted to jailor, then certified correctional officer and, eventually, deputy sheriff. After John Whitehead retired, I continued my service under the leadership of his son, Sheriff Jerry Whitehead. Over the course of nearly four decades, I continued my education to complete hundreds of hours of training to become proficient in all areas of law enforcement including Homicide Investigation, Crime Scene Procedure, Narcotics Investigation, Weapons of Mass Destruction Preparednessjust to name a few. I worked my way up over the years through the ranks from patrol deputy to sergeant, to lieutenant, to captain, to major and second-incommand to the sheriff. I served as chief investigator for over 15 years and during that time Union County had one of the states highest case clearance rates. The personal side of my life revolves around my family. My wife and love of my life is Brenda Harvey Seay. The joys and blessings that we hold most dear are our daughters, Sara Wilson and Amanda Maddox, our precious grandchildren Grant, Emily and Jace, and our son-inlaw Mike Maddox, as well as our large extended family. Like you, my family is precious to me. Like you, I want to help make our community the best place for them to live and feel cherished and protected. I believe most of you share that sentiment. I am a simple man. Nothing has been handed to me and I do not think anything is owed to me. I have worked hard for my place in life. I am the first to admit that I am not a perfect person, but I strive to live a life of honesty and integrity. I believe that most of you can relate to that way of life. Like me, you understand what it takes to provide for your loved ones: hard work, commitment, endurance, sacrifice. Like me, you want to instill those fundamental values in your children and grandchildren. Like me, you want to live in a place that fosters that way of life. I am dedicated to Union County and am committed to protect and serve its citizens. I have spent my adult life in service to others. If elected, I pledge to do everything within my power to make our county a better place to live. I believe most of you want the same thing. You, too, want Union County to be a safe and nurturing place to live, work and raise your family. I intend to conduct my campaign in an honorable manner, without demeaning remarks regarding any opponent. I urge my supporters and opponents to do likewise. I, like many of you, intend to live the rest of my life in Union County. Lets not let differing political views cause loss of dignity and bitterness for years to come. I have no ill will toward any rival for the post. Specifically, in seeking the office of sheriff, I mean no disrespect toward the Whitehead family. John Whitehead was a mentor to me when I was a young man. Jerry Whitehead was a very close friend for many years. I have always held the entire Whitehead family in high regard. This race is not, however, about personal relationships or traditions. It is simply about who is most capable of fulfilling the duties of the job. I believe in my heart that I am the most qualified to serve Union County in the capacity of sheriff. This political race can be equated to applying for a job. The only difference is that instead of a CEO or company-appointed committee deciding who gets the position, the decision falls upon you, the voters of Union County. I have applied for the position because I believe that I am the most qualified for it. I am the only candidate who has worked in every capacity of the Sheriffs Officefrom dispatcher to interim sheriff. I am the only candidate who has almost 40 years of job-specific training. I am the only candidate who has decades of investigative experience in solving real crimes. There is no substitute for experience when it comes to fulfilling the tremendous responsibility of keeping our community safe. If you believe that experience matters, then please vote for me. If elected, I pledge to be a hands-on, working sheriff. I will uphold the law and treat all with respect and fairness. Your concerns will be addressed in a prompt manner with personal contact and follow-up review of each reported incident. I will implement improved patrol and crime prevention procedures. I will be accessible, open and available. I promise to conduct the office of sheriff with professionalism, integrity and honesty. If you think that I am the most qualified applicant for the post, please vote for me.   Feel free to contact me at 352-275-2052 if you have any questions about me or where I stand on issues facing our county. Your vote matters and is appreciated. complete trainingThe Reception and Medical Center who completed their Basic Recruit Training on April 24. Members of were in attendance.

This was one of the largest proms in recent years, with 198 students enjoying the festivities. Dance the Night Away was this years theme, and that is exactly what the students did. The entrance to the dance floor was lined with purple, pink and turquoise balloons. Stars were plastered everywhere. A huge disco ball rotated over the dance floor and laser lights flashed. A good variety of food and music were provided. DJ Kris Carlisle was a hit. Taylor Wilkins and Austin Dukes were crowned this years prom queen and king. The night ended with the participants carrying away gift bags full of favors. Thanks to the work of select students and faculty, the prom was a huge success.

Staten of Waldo recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Kennedy completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is Battle Stations. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. Battle Stations is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly Navy flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.     Kennedy is a 2004   graduate of Bradford High School, Starke. Kennedy completes Navy basic Major Charles Daniel Sikes, United States Army Reserve, distinguished himself by exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding service to the United States as the Command Judge Advocate (CJA), 335th Signal Command (Theater) (Provisional) at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, from 01 May 2013 to 15 April 2014 during OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM.

Most outdoors activities pose certain risks to their participants, including threats by animals, insects, diseases and snakes. Despite our preference of entertaining those noted threats, the most common one during the summer probably comes from the sun. Some of the best collections of work, precautions and warnings about toxic chemicals and sunscreen products come from the Environmental Working Group. It has a very informative and easily accessed website, which is the source of most the following data. The proliferation rate of melanomathe most deadly form of skin cancerhas tripled over the past 35 years.   Despite the fact that sunscreen will protect skin against ultraviolet damage, there is little proof that the different sunscreen products prevent cancer. Consequently, three frequently quoted warnings provided by the Environmental Working Group are to cover up, seek shade and avoid the midday sun. Many sunscreen products promote the presence of a wide SPF spectrum. UVB rays cause sunburn, but UVA rays penetrate deeper, causing skin damage and possibly cancer.   SPF sunscreen ratings of 15-50 are recommended, but many advertise SPF ratings above 50. SPF ratings above 50 provide no additional protection and might cause additional skin damage. Additional recommendations provided by Environmental Working Group include: Do not use powder products. They are not FDA approved. Some products contain oxybenzone, which is a synthetic estrogen that penetrates the skin deeply and can disrupt the hormone system. Some products are in a spray form and might contain harmful products. Some products contain vitamin A, which Environmental 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thu rsday, May 1, 2014 CRIME DOESNT PAYBUT WE DO!REWARDS UP TO $3,000 CRIME DOESNT PAYBUT WE DO!P AID FOR BY THE FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE CRIME STOPPERS TRUST FUNDREWARDS UP TO $3,000R EMAIN ANONYMOUSCALL TOLL FREE S TOPPE RSSubmit a TIP ON-LINE at: www.F CCrimeStoppers.com Members of MLS systems providing excellent access to properties & listing exposure! www.SwiftCreekRealty.netOur Locations: Lake Butler12469 West SR 100 32054Lake City1140 SW Bascom Norris Dr. Ste. 106 32025 Gainesville3917 NW 97th Blvd. 32606 (800) 833-0499 (386) 496-0499 CUSTOM BUILT HOME with S/S appliances! 1.4+/Acres!$224,900!

The theater was filled. I read the book about a year ago, and found the movie a little different. The movie starts out telling this is a true story I believe it. In the book, the four year old boy, who went to Heaven, tells his father that he saw the Blessed Mother in Heaven, and she has an altar in front of God the Father, where she prays for us every day, and that she takes care of Jesus in Heaven, just like she took care of him on the earth when He was a baby That part was not mentioned in the movie. I didnt pick who would by my mother, and no one else on the earth picked their mother Jesus did, and He didnt pick any losers. When you dilute the truth by omission, it is not the whole truth. I guess the Blessed Mother is still too heavy for some people to handle. Read Luke 1:46:48 Thank you Frank the BakerMovie has something missingDear Editor: Our nation has recognized Law Day since 1958, when President Eisenhower issued a proclamation recognizing the role that the rule of law played in the formation of our country. In 1961, Congress officially established Law Day on May 1st of every year by enacting 36 U.S.C. 113, which states, in pertinent part, that Law Day, U.S.A., is a special day of celebration by the people of the United States (1) in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States and of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other and with other countries; and (2) for the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life. Each year, Law Day celebrates a different theme. Past years have explored First Amendment freedoms, the quest for equality, and the changing nature of law in the 21st century. Other years have commemorated milestones such as Lincolns Bicentennial and the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. This years theme is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. You may ask yourself why it matters to you. Consider this: In 1868, President Andrew Johnson avoided removal from office by one vote. In 1940, the Selective Service Act was amended by a single vote to extend the draft term from one year to two and a half years. More recently, in the 2008 election for the Alaska House of Representatives, incumbent Mike Kelly beat out challenger Karl Kassel by only four votes. And of course, who can forget the pregnant, hanging, bulging, and dimpled chads that permeated the 2000 election for President of the United States? Many of us take voting for granted. In fact, barely more than 51% of eligible voters showed up to the polls for the 2000 presidential election. In contrast, Western Europe has averaged 77% voter turnout since 1945. As we observe the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we must all reflect on the importance of our precious right to elect another human being into a position of governance. That right, as described by Theodore Hesburgh, president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, is a civic sacrament, and we must all strive not only to exercise it ourselves, but to ensure that our fellow citizens are free to exercise it as well. Peg OConnor, Gainesville Chair, 8th Judicial Circuit Bar Association Law Day Committee President-Elect, North Central Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar AssociationWhy every vote mattersDear Editor: Every year since President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day in 1958, the United States has marked May 1 as a day of national recognition of our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law. The theme for Law Day, May 1, 2014, as designated by the American Bar Association, is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The theme of voting rights is timely with the nation preparing to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of two landmark pieces of legislation: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. At the heart of both these statutes is a guiding principle: that equality of opportunity to participate in the Nations civic and economic life is a fundamental right of all Americans and ought to be protected as such. While there is still much work to do, these laws have been crucial in the progress toward this goal. Securing every Americans right to vote is a central part of this struggle. As President Lyndon B. Johnson pointed out in his 1965 Message to Congress on Voting: In our system, the first right and most vital of all our rights is the right to vote. ... It is from the exercise of this right that the guarantee of all our other rights flows. Unless the right to vote be secure and undenied, all other rights are insecure and subject to denial for all our citizens. However, the right to vote is far from secure. A recent report by the bipartisan Presidential Commission on Election Administration noted that voters frequently stand in long lines caused by broken voting machines, confusing ballots, and untrained or undertrained poll workers. This is completely unacceptable in a modern democracy. Local, state, and federal officials must work together to overcome these barriers to voting participation. Participating in the political process is both our right and our duty as citizens. This Law Day, let us reflect upon what each of us can do to protect and promote the voting rights of ourselves and our fellow Americans. It is only by ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to vote that we can be sure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Later that day, he returned to the store on his way home with a large catch of crappie full of roe. Tyson indicated that the catch filled a 5-gallon can and included mostly 2to 2.5-pound fish.

down in celebratory fashion. Everything in the pockets of my jacket fell out, McCormick said. Lost in Limbo was the result of a class project in which students were to incorporate toys into still-life photos. In her description accompanying the photo, McCormick wrote, I produced a composite photograph of a teddy bear lost in a limbo state. I set the tone for the piece by symbolizing lost time with the clock, made in the fashion of a television, which the teddy bear appears to be watching. To enhance the interest of the subject, I experimented with recreating an old-fashion photo using Adobe Photoshop. McCormick also submitted a photo of a spiral staircase and one of a dog peeking out from underneath a larger dogtitled, Hide and Seekfor League for Innovation consideration. The Hide and Seek photo and one of her ceramics pieces were the submissions she felt most confident about, McCormick said. The selection of Lost in Limbo was a bit of a surprise. That was the one I thought going in, Oh, theyre going to find this one cheesy and overdone, but it was the one picked, McCormick said. Art has held a fascination for McCormick since she was in elementary school. She remembers creating a ceramic piece in the likeness of Disney Main Street, USA character Scoop Sanderson. McCormick said she didnt think the piece was very well done, but admitted you could tell it was Scoop Sanderson. My art teacher was just amazed at what I could produce, McCormick said.

She didnt do much with art in middle and high schools, McCormick said. She actually went to college with a plan to focus on dance, but she eventually returned to her artwork at the encouragement of her younger sister, Ronda. Immersing herself fully into art became almost addictive. The more I got back into it, it was like, What more can I take? What more can I grasp? What more can they offer me? The more I learned, the more I found out, the more excited I got, McCormick said. McCormick won the first-ever Santa Fe College competition in which she entered artwork. Despite the fact she showed an artistic talent as early as elementary school, she described winning as pure luck. I was not sure how I was going to do, McCormick said. I didnt know what to think going into it. I was kind of just the new person on the block, whereas most of the people who entered had been (at Santa Fe) for a couple of years. The entry that won was a banjo piece that was constructed completely of recyclable materials as per show requirements. McCormick entered the same piece in Alachua Countys annual Trashformations showa recycled-art contest for middle school, high school and college studentsand earned second place. McCormick, who had taken part in 10 to 15 shows, received some incredibly good birthday news recently. A family friend whos a professional artist invited McCormick to be a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association for a year. The artist also offered to serve as a mentor for McCormick. It was a very wonderful surprise, McCormick said. Being a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association offers McCormick the chance to set up her own booth at association festivals so that more people get to know her and her work. That, and having an artist mentor, will help make a transition to more of a professional level. Needless to say, McCormick has been the recent recipient of quite a bit of good news.

The two and another person had apparently been drinking before deputies arrived. Thomas Allen Box, 32, of Lawtey was arrested April 28 by Bradford deputies for driving while license suspended or revoked. Bond was set at $500 for the charge. Samuel Isaiah Coblentz, 36, of Starke was arrested April 28 by Starke police for withholding child support. Bond was set at $520 for the charge.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Williston pitcher Trent Johnson struck out 11 and doubled in the game-winning run in leading the Red Devils to a 3-0 win over Union County in the District 71A baseball championship game on April 24 in Williston. The 6-4, 180-pound Santa Fe College signee allowed three hits and no walks. Union County threatened to score in the fourth inning when Cole Kite reached first by beating out a throw from third base. Garrett Hersey then singled, advancing Kite to second with no outs. Johnson then struck out Chris Starling, and Williston catcher Haden Cano picked off Hersey at first. Corey Hersey then grounded out to the shortstop to end the inning. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Fort White scored two runs on errors in the top of the eighth, while pitcher Rhett Willis struck out eight batters in three innings Lowery admitted. We beat everybody during the regular season. We won all our meets. I thought we would be top five. I had no idea that we could win it. Junior Dakota Hodge, who was the runner-up in the 129 class, said, We thought we had a chance to win. Thats all we needed. Hodge finished with a 435-pound total to finish behind 5 pounds behind West Floridas Roland Stark. Hodges bench press of 235 pounds was 10 pounds better than every other lifter in the class. I figured I might actually come in around third or fourth, said Hodge, who had a clean and jerk total of 200, but then luckily someone scratched their last few lifts. Blanton had a bench press of 255 and a clean and jerk of 240 to finish with a 495 total and place behind 139-pound class champion Ronnie Tucker of Altha and runner-up Isaac Gonzalez of LaBelle. Tucker and Gonzalez had totals of 555 and 510. Honestly, I didnt care what place I got as long as I got our team points, Blanton said. Musselman finished with a personal-best total of 600 poundsa bench press of 310 and a clean and jerk of 290. That placed him behind Tavares Jose Barajas, who won the 169 class with a 635 total, and Althas 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 of Ag IN HAMPTON AUTO REPAIRS SALES SERVICEMajor & Minor Repairs Brake Work Foreign & Domestic A/C Repair Transmission Specialist Low Labor Rates Computer Engine Diagnostics and MORE!Family Owned & Operated for over 20 years!

Going in, I had already looked at all the totals from all the other (state-qualifying meets), Musselman said. I knew I was going to get within the top three. I went in there just knowing if I did my best, Id be able to score for our team. Steve Beverly is just a sophomore, but he apparently had no jitters as he was able to place fourth in the 129 class with a bench press of 230 and a clean and jerk of 195. Beverlys total of 425 actually tied him with North Bay Havens Gavyn Collins and Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, but he placed ahead of those two lifters because of the weigh-in tiebreaker. Those three points Beverly earned by placing fourth were huge. Without him, we dont win it, Lowery said. Though finishing out of medal contention, senior Brandon Johnson did place in the top 10, placing ninth in the 154 class with a 515 total. He had a bench press of 275 and a clean and jerk of 240. Senior Darein Gilio placed 12th in the 199 class with a 585 total. He had a bench press of 300 and a clean and jerk of 285. Ill be honest with you, Lowery said. When Darein didnt score a point, I thought, We cant win it. This years field, though, proved to be pretty competitive. Aside from Keystone and Baker finishing in a tie for first, three schoolsArnold, Suwannee, West Floridafinished tied for second, while two schools Altha, Warner Christian finished tied for third. Plus, each of the individual state champions were from different schools. Lowery talked to Vernons coach prior to the start of the meet, saying a bunch of schools had to score points to give someone other than Baker County a chance. Baker County was the state runner-up in 2012 and 2013 and won four straight state titles from 2008 to 2011. The good thing about this years meet was everybody had a lot of good kids who could score points, Lowery said. Nine schools were within five points of winning. Lowery said Keystone placing first is quite an accomplishment considering that it has to lift against a lot of larger schools that it wouldnt compete against in most other sports. Thats why the end result left him feeling blessed. God is awesome, Lowery said. Thats what I thought. Stop and thinkwe had six kids lifting. Four of them placed, we had no (individual) state champions and we still won a state championship. That doesnt happen. This year, it did, and it made for quite a return trip home. Oh, on that ride I was pumped, Blanton said. I was so excited the whole ride home. I had the trophy in my arms. I was looking at it the whole time. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a rematch of one of last seasons Class 4A regional quarterfinal games, but there would be no seventh-inning rally for the Bradford High School softball team this year as the Tornadoes just couldnt get the hits they needed in a 2-1 loss to visiting South Sumter on April 23. South Sumter freshman pitcher Marissa Mesiemore, who hit a solo home run in the sixth inning that proved to be the game winner, gave up just two hits in propelling the Raiders (16-8) to this past Tuesdays semifinals, where they hosted P.K. Yonge (22-3). She did a great job of getting the ball inside on our hands, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said of Mesiemore. We had a tough time hitting the ball harda lot of pop-up outs in the infield when she got inside on us. We just never really made the adjustment to turn on that pitch. Bradford (18-8) hosted South Sumter in last years regional quarterfinals as well, scoring two runs in the bottom of the seventh to win 3-2 and fuel a run to the state semifinals. This year, the Tornadoes did put the tying run on in the seventh with no outs when Jaci Atkinson drew a walk. Mesiemore, though, struck out Sabina Watson and Lindsey Wiggins before forcing Mackenzie Gault to hit an infield pop-up. We just didnt do enough offensively to be able to pull it out, Davis said. If you give up one or two runs, you feel like youre going to have a chance to win, but we just couldnt put the runs on the board. Mesiemore reached on a dropped fly ball to lead off the top of the second. Bradford pitcher Ashton Adkins struck out the next two batters, but hit Vicki Medina with a pitch to put two on with two outs. Shelby Spruill then hit a ground ball to third, but an error on the play at first allowed Tyana Ramirez, who was running for Mesiemore, to score and put the Raiders up 1-0. Thats one we dont make very often, Davis said of the two-out miscue.South Sumter ends BHS softball seasonJarvis DeSue and Austin Long competed for Bradford and Union County, respectively, at the Florida High School Athletic Association Finals in boys weightlifting, with each finishing just outside of the top 10 of his weight class. Unions Long competed in the 129-pound class, placing 12th with a total of 380. His bench press of 215 pounds was the fifth-highest total in the class. Longs overall total was 45 pounds less than that of Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, who earned the last medal in the class with a sixth-place finish. Bradfords DeSue had the ninth-highest bench press total (280) in the 154 class and finished 13th with a 495 overall total. He was 90 pounds behind Baker Countys Dalton Dyal, who earned the last medal with a sixth-place finish.Bradfords DeSue, Unions Long miss topout of Santa Fe Lake.   One fisherman produced a 50-pound catch that consisted of only six catfish.   The fisherman was using crappie minnows for bait. The pungent smell of fish beds was noticeable at the boat launch during the April 24 Sampson Lake Bass Tournament. The wind was blowing in a southeasterly direction, and some of the fishermen noted that the smell was very strong on the northeastern shore. The timing would suggest that shellcrackers or a combination of shellcrackers and bluegill would most likely be responsible for those bedding indicators. These fish are probably being stimulated by the forthcoming new moon, which will reach its full phase on April 29. The saltwater front seems to have been dampened by Easters cool weather. Most inshore reports remained centered around flounder, trout, reds and black drum. There are reports of whiting on east coast beaches, and for those who look for fishing variety, there are reports of croakers and yellow-mouth trout in the St. Johns River around Green Cove Springs. Reports of summer cobia near the beaches are spotty at best.   Hunting season in Florida is over with the exception of hogs and rabbits, which can be hunted all year. Georgias spring gobbler season will continue through May 15.   Bass tourney resultsAt the April 23 Bald Eagle Tournament, Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec placed first. Joey Yarborough and Ryan Rentz were second, while John Breton and Chuck Foster were third. Kadlec landed the big fish. Trevor Corbitt and Drew Rogers teamed up for first at the April 24 Sampson Lake Tournament. John (last name not available) and Jason Jordan placed second, while Jonathon Nash and Richard Kingston were third. Nash had the big fish.FINSContinued from 4B Bradford High School senior catcher David Hall signed a letter of intent to play at Jacksonvilles Trinity Baptist College during a signing ceremony on April 25. Hall will join teammate/ second baseman Wyatt Collins, who signed with Trinity Baptist on April 11.

The Tornadoes (17-10) held two leads, including a one-run lead going into the seventh. We just couldnt close the door, said Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan, whose team will travel to play the Villages in a regional quarterfinal game on Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. It was 4-3 in the top of the seventh when Fort Whites Willie Carter launched a home run over the fence in left field to tie the game. Duncan accepted responsibility for the homer, saying it was not the intent to throw anything near the plate that Carter could get a hold of. Carter was responsible for Fort White beating the Tornadoes 10-9 early in the regular season. We just shouldve put him on and not thrown to him, Duncan said.

away from first baseman Austin Green, allowing Willistons Noah Faircloth to score from second. After the game, Tomlinson credited Johnsons pitching performance as well as his offensive production. Hes got a bright future ahead of him, Tomlinson said of Johnson. Hes going to college for a reason. Both teams advance to the Class 1A regional semifinals on Tuesday, May 6. Williston will host Wildwood, while Union County will travel to Pierson to take on Taylor High School. Austin Langworthy led off the Williston seventh with a double to the gap between left and center fields. Cano then singled, advancing Langworthy to second. Johnson doubled to right-center field, driving in both runners. Williston scored an additional run in the sixth inning after Union County head coach Brian Tomlinson replaced starting pitcher Jordan Bryant with Ty Cook. With the bases loaded, Johnson grounded to third base. The Tigers got the first out with a force play at home, but catcher Corey Herseys throw to first got A fielding error put Fort Whites Brent Beach on with one out in the top of the eighth. Bradford pitcher Caleb Polk struck out the next batter before giving up a single to Jayson Brock, putting runners on the corners. A throwing error on a ground ball by Ryan Ellis allowed the winning runs to score. It was that kind of night for the Bradford defense, which committed errors in all but three innings. They were in this game because of our errors, Duncan said of Fort White. We just did not make the plays when we needed to. An error allowed Fort White (14-11) to score the games first run. Leadoff batter Brock opened the game with a single and eventually scored on a dropped fly ball to put the Indians up 1-0. Bradford answered in the bottom of the first. Leadoff Jackson Reddish was hit by a pitch. Holden Huggins entered the game to run for Reddish, stealing second and third before scoring on Wyatt Barnes single. The Tornadoes went up 2-1 in the third when Carson Yowell, who reached on a double, scored on Jacob Lukes sacrifice fly. Fort White tied the score at 2-2 in the fourth. Austin Dupree hit a leadoff single and advanced on a bunt by Kodey Owens before eventually scoring on a bunt by Corey Pentolino. Bradford pushed two runs across in the fifth. Yowell drew a leadoff walk and advanced on Barnes sacrifice bunt before Luke drew a walk. David Hall drilled a single down the firstbase line to score both runners. Barnes and Matt Stanwix-Hay each went 2-for-4. Stanwix-Hay was the only batter to get a hit off of Willis, who entered the sixth inning in relief of starting pitcher Dupree. The Tornadoes regional quarterfinal opponent is coming off of its third straight district championship, but the Villages (15-8) was a Class 1A program prior to this season. The Buffalo defeated Trinity Catholic 7-6 to claim the District 6 crown. The winner between Bradford and the Villages will advance to the Tuesday, May 6, semifinals to play the winner between Fort White and Trinity Catholic (188). Bradford would have to travel to face either team. Visit www.StarkeJournal.com to view more photos from this game. (Membership required.)Tornadoes advanced by defeating RaidersBradford was held hitless in the district semifinals, but still advanced to the championship game, defeating third seed and host Santa Fe 2-1 on April 22. Though they didnt have a hit, the Tornadoes took advantage of three walks and a hit batter, as well as good baserunning by Huggins, who was 2-for-2 on stolen-base attempts. His counterpart may have thrown a no-hitter, but Bradford pitcher Luke (4-1) fared pretty well himself, giving up just two hits and striking out nine in a complete-game performance. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR BOARD MEETINGS WILL BE HELD ON THE 1st TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH AT 6:00 P.M.

Kaylen Chitty, who entered the game to run for Adkins, was left stranded on first as Mesiemore struck one batter out and forced two others to hit fly balls to the outfield. Adkins, who gave up six hits and no walks, recorded one of her 11 strikeouts to open the top of the sixth. Mesiemore, though, drove a 3-2 pitch over the fence in center field to put the Raiders up 2-1. South Sumters McKayla Peninger was the games only batter with multiple hits, going 2-for-3. It was a tough way for seniors Adkins, Gault and Wiggins to go out. Davis said the three players always gave maximum effort and that their leadership will be missed. Thats tough to replace, Davis said. Itll be interesting to see who steps up as leaders next year with a good group coming back. Five starters on this years team are juniors, while one is a sophomore. All but one of those players were starters on the 2013 team that had so much success. I think theyll come back hungry, Davis said. I hope that this can be kind of a springboard into next year for them to be focused and ready to go.REGIONContinued from 8B Hay makes a throw from BHSContinued from 8B UCHSContinued from 8B

Tigers are tops with 3 straight titles The Lake Butler Middle School softball team made history by winning its third straight Suwannee Middle School Athletic Conference championship. Lake Butler went 13-1 and was the only SMAC team to go undefeated in conference play. The Tigers were dominant, scoring a total of 175 runs, while allowing the opposition to score just 45. Lake Butler went through a three-year conference title drought after winning the SMAC in 2008 with coaches Trudy Andrews, Wayne Andrews and Travis Rimes. Tommy Nettles, who has been the head coach the past four seasons, helped the Tigers once again get back on top, assisted by coaches Vince Tucker in 2012, Taylor Nettles-Bennett and Kevin Lewis in 2013 and Tim Whitehead this season. All three years the teams have had many talented players on them, Nettles said. The latest SMAC championship team, pictured above, is: (front, l-r) Jessica Howard, Kensley Hamilton, Summer Fulgham, Kyler Herndon, Angela Shoup, Josie Godwin, (back, l-r) Tiffany Clark, Teala Howard, Alli Perez, assistant coach Tim Whitehead, Lexi Androlevich, Madelyn Kish, Brooke Waters, head coach Tommy Nettles, Michaila Kennedy, Madison Adams and Kamaya Cohen. BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor The Union County Board of County Commissioners is considering a longoverdue pay incentive plan for EMS in hopes of keeping personnel here longer, and avoiding labor shortages and a possible disruption in service. Having such a plan in place is somewhat of a standard amongst licensed and required-training professions. Its not just EMS, said Clerk of Court Kellie Hendricks Connell. Most EMSs, most public safeties do this, but its also a lot of electricians, and a lot of journeymen qualifya lot of licensure-qualified positions have a pay scale in place. Based on tenure and increased education, Commission Chairman Jimmy Tallman added. After last months regular meeting when Andrews announced that five EMS employees had left the previous month and the board discussed reasons why they were leaving for neighboring counties, they considered raises. They also agreed with Interim EMS Director Mitch Andrews to find a solution to keep employees here, who often come to Union County, train, and then go elsewhere for better pay and opportunities. Youre not gonna to say, No ones ever gonna leave, Andrews said. But having this pay scale in place, I mean you can sit here and look at this and go, If Im here next year, this is what Im gonna be making, with that scale. Anybody can look at it. And it gives you somewhere to go. The plan also actually requires higher certification levels than the state requires. The further the scale goes, the further apart and harder it is to get, Andrews said. It goes from 20 hours to 40 hours that you have to get. Thats more than we have to have to recert with the state. So thats going to be a total of 63 hours, I think, that youll have to have. And that only benefits everybody because thats just more knowledge that these guys are gettin. Bradford County has used a similar pay scalethough the amounts are Andrews presents plan to keep EMS employees County fire chief will serve as interim EMS director for another 60 days Andrews explains plan to commissioners.

BY RENAE ALLEN Science Teacher, UCHS Seven Union County High School and three Lake Butler Middle School students were participants in the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair held in Lakeland, April 8-10. These students were selected as top winners at the Suwannee Valley Regional Science and Engineering Fair held in February. The participants were Holly Tucker, Case Emerson, Ben Riggs, Kent Coburn, Amanda Snyder, Mariah Griner, Amke Jebens, Ashley Harris, Madeline Kish and Alex Perez. Amanda Snyder received a $20 gift card for an outstanding computer science exhibit from the Broward South Regional Science Fair. Mariah Griner received an environmental science award consisting of a $25 cash prize from the Brevard Regional Science Fair. Madeline Kish was the winner of the JT Malesky Award for science enthusiasm, including a $50 cash prize. Ashley Harris won fourth place in Junior Behavioral and Social Sciences. Holly Tucker, a UCHS senior, was the recipient of a variety of awards including first place in the senior botany category for the second year in a row. Hollys research is a continuing study that she has worked on throughout her high school career. She investigates the role of resin production in various pine species to determine the amount of energy that can be obtained from the resin. She has correlated resin production to the number of resin canals in a tree. By genetically modifying trees to increase the number of resin canals and therefore energy capacity, there could be a substantial impact on the biofuel industry. In addition to first place, Holly was named a Grand Award Winner and given a Best in Fair award. This honor included a $300 award from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, a $1,000 cash scholarship from the Dr. Nelson Ying Scholar Grand Award fund and a $1,200 cash scholarship the Florida Foundation for Future Scientists. In addition to the state science fair, Holly recently presented her project at the Florida Junior Academy of Sciences state meeting in Fort Pierce at Indian River State College. There she received an Outstanding Presenter award from the judges. Holly and fellow UCHS senior Bradley DeShong presented their botanical research to the Master Gardeners of Columbia County last month and were honored by the organizations members with a reception. Both Holly Tucker and Case Emerson will travel to Los Angeles this month to compete at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, May 11-16. 10 UC students attend State Science Fair Tucker and Emerson heading to international fair in LA ABOVE: (L-r) Case Emerson, Madeline Kish, Ashley Harris, Alex Perez, Amanda Snyder, Holly Tucker, Mariah Griner, Kent Coburn, Amke Jebens and Ben Riggs.

CORRECTION In last weeks issue we stated that Bill McGill is donating a sugar cane grinder to the City of Lake Butler based on information provided to us. However, the Lewis Mann family is actually donating the antique machine, a sugar cane mill We apologize for the error. etc differentfor about eight years, according to Andrews. The plan enables EMS employees to work toward a higher salary as a reward for longevity and attaining higher levels of certification. On a side note, the board extended Andrews term as interim EMS director another 60 days since it has had trouble assembling a hiring committee to replace former EMS Director Chris Drum, who left in February. Andrews, who also serves as fire chief, was appointed interim EMS director for 60 days while the county finds a replacement. Under the new incentive plan, which Andrews presented to the board at a special meeting on April 21 the base pay would be $8.40 per hour for a probationary, full-time EMT (emergency medical technician) hire, meaning the first six months of employment. And since all EMS employees anywhere are required to work an average of 112 hours every two weekstwo 40-hour weeks plus 32 hours of overtime paid at time-and-a-halfthat pay comes to a total an annual salary of $27,955.20. After six months the pay increases to $8.82 or $29,352.96 per year through Year Two of employment. (In the March 27, 2014, issue of the Union County Times, the annual base pay was computed based on a standard 40-hour workweek, which is not the case for EMS employees, as noted above. They work set days, which amounts to 24 hours on and 48 hours off, on a rotating basis. The 112 hours every two weeks is actually an average cycle of the following: two weeks of 120 hours (five days), plus another two weeks of 120 hours (five days), plus 96 hours (four days). A new, full-time paramedic hire would start at $9.72 per hour or $32,361.64 per year, and move up to $10.21 per hour or $33,979.72 per year after six months. Paramedics are EMTs who have received further training. For comparison, the Florida Professional Firefighters 2012/2013 Wage Survey, dated April 26, 2013, lists an Alachua County firefighter/ EMT starting salary at $32,357 and firefighter/ paramedic at $35,878. It lists Bradford County at $26,990 and $30,326, respectively, for similar positions. The minimum and maximum salaries for EMT and paramedic positions currently listed on Alachua County Board of County Commissioners own website range from EMT/ Driver 56 at $8.76 to $13.59 per hour ($29,153.28 to $45,227.52 per year) at the low end, to Lieutenant/Paramedic 40 at $26.07 to $43.02 per hour ($54,225.60 to $89,481.60 per year) at the high end. Under the plan for Union County, a full-time EMT would be able to top out at $13.03 per hour or $43,367.69. A full-time paramedic could make as much as $15.09 per hour or $50,203.52. Both of those would require two decades of tenure along with 300 contact hours of education over that time. I think this (incentive plan) would definitely give them some motivation to, you know, to be here, Andrews said. Commissioner Wayne Smith noted a difference in workload between the neighboring counties. He said that Union County makes 3.6 calls per 24hour shift, and Alachua County makes 10.7 callsthree times as many. Yeah, and thats the thing: I never expect us to match Alachua County, Andrews responded. But what we have to do is make the working conditions offset the difference in pay, where its a lot more laid back to work here, its a lot nicer to work here than it is Alachua County where its a lot more rigid and youre running a whole bunch of calls So people go, I can go there and make $6,000 more or I can stay here and actually enjoy coming to work every day, Andrews added. And thats what we have to do: Just get to the point where our people go, Well, I stay here, make a little less; I go over there and I hate my job but Im making more money. And almost every one of them would stay here. Every one of them thats left has told me that they would stay here if they could have made a little bit more money. Total expenditures for EMS salaries currently cost the county $809,978.90. Smiths proposed 50-cent raise would cost $837,417.61. The incentive plan would cost $848,072.97. Yet all of those figures are substantially less than EMSs current payroll budget of $1,050,423.00. Andrews recently showed the tentative incentive plan to an employee planning on going to Alachua, in order to get his feedback, and I asked him if that would keep him here. And he said that he was content with that, that he would not apply for Alachuawhich he applied last time and didnt get the job. So that ought to tell you that this scale is on the right track of cutting down our turnover and keeping people here and which, in turn, is going to save you money because youre not having to pay overtime, youre not having the orientation, youre not having everything else that goes along with it, Andrews said. And were getting more experienced medics in the field, Connell added. More experienced medics, you know, Andrews concurred. Somebody asked me a question: So what happens in 10 years when youre paying all these people? Thats what you want! Nothing against the new guys, but if Ive got a choice between three-year medic and a 15-year medic, Im taking a 15-year medic every day Thats what you have to look at, you know. If we got to that point, then weve done our job and thats where everybody needs to be. Andrews further clarified the benefit of an incentive plan over the across-the-board raise currently being considered. In fact, the plan would actually give an automatic and far more substantial raise to most of the current EMS employees than the proposed 50-cent plan because of the class level they would fit intoas high as $1.54 for one. A few recent, probationary hires would see a slight drop in pay till they qualify for the next class level. The plan would, of course, automatically and inherently provide for future raises, which should reduce turnover. It just gives it progression, Andrews said. And thats the biggest thing, is to see, you know, down the future you know you can do this or you can do this, and its spelled out for them right here. And everybody will get a copy when they first start and say, Hey, if I stay here five years I will be making x amount of dollars, and right now they dont know that. I mean its as we were able to provide it, and, you know, you all do the best you can with it and, you know, you do it when you can do it, but then nobody knows. This (incentive plan) would kind of give them some clarity in the future to know, Well, if I stick out another year, Im gonna get x amount of dollars, he said. And the good thing about doing it this way is you can, when it comes budget time, you can literally put everybody where they need to be and know exactly what its gonna be. Regarding the plan, Commissioner Karen Cossey said, Its pretty clear. Others on the board concurred. The board will review the plan, and is also waiting to determine health insurance costs that may change if a new plan is decided on or needed. If the county goes with the plan, it may finance it by raising the special assessment fee of $50 by another $20, which Cossey recommended and Tallman supported. He said it has not been raised since 1988. Justin Stankiewicz, chief financial officer for the clerk of court, said that would bring in $100,000 in additional revenue. Tallman and Cossey both remarked that residents pay more for garbage pickup than for rescue, which seems backward to both of them. I dont think anybody would object going up $20 on the special assessment fee, Cossey said. Tallman added that raising the special assessment might help mitigate a chronic problem thats been going on a long time regarding having adequate personneleven enough to staff the third rescue unitand to make up for the money the county loses every year. For instance, the county transports 2,300 people a year, but loses money on Medicaid patients. At the boards March 17 meeting, Smith said that the county bills over $1 million a year in transport services, but only collects 47 percent of that because most patients are on Medicaidlosing over a half a million dollars a year in revenue. In another way that could finance the incentive plan, Andrews and Connell have both made the case that there could be also be substantial savings in training costs gained through reduced turnover that the new plan is designed to remedy. I was just going to confirm what Mitch ended up saying, Connell said at the boards March 27 meeting, that I had worked those numbers with (former EMS Director Chris Drum), and we estimated somewhere between $170,000 and $190,000 to train. And that was just the orientation, Andrews chimed in at the time. That wasnt for overtime we were paying to fill the holes. So it could have been even more than that. (Andrews said that theyve already spent $23,765.39 in orientation alone, just over halfway through the fiscal yearfrom Oct. 1 of last year through April 21.) Thats correct. That was just the direct training of new employees, Connell added. And thats why I say, it seems counterintuitive to pay more money, but just looking at EMS, give these people a raise as an incentive to stay, it will save us more than it costs us. And in addition to that, well also have more, and better trained, personnel on the vehicles. EMS Continued from 1A Get back issues of the Union County located at 25 East Main Street.

BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At the April 8 meeting of the Raiford Town Council, board members addressed the issue of dwindling funds for the towns current housing modification Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). At the March 11 meeting, Grant Administrator Ronnie Vanzant explained to the council there would not be sufficient funding to assist the remaining three applicants, but through re-bids for lower prices on constructed homes or mobile homes, the first two applicants may be able to benefit, as the third applicant was an alternate. At the April 8 meeting, Vanzant offered the board three options for addressing the remaining applicants needs for funding, and presented information on current mobile home bids which were received in addition to prior bids for site-built homes. Option 1 was to award applicant one with funding to build a new structure on the property. Option 2 was to reject all current bids and ask local contractors to provide lower bids. Option 3 was to purchase mobile homes for the two remaining applicants, since the third one is still an alternate. Board members unanimously passed Council President Rebecca Bryants motion to proceed forward with the first option, awarding applicant number one with funding to build a new structure. Once built, the needs of applicant number two will be evaluated to determine the actions required to address those needs.

BY JAY TUCKER Union County Sr. Forester For the thirteenth year, Jay Tucker, senior county forester with the Florida Forest Service, presented a two-day Arbor Day program to the Lake Butler Middle School sixth grade students. The program included one day in the classroom, where the students learned about the history of Arbor Day and the importance of trees in both our urban and forest setting. The second day, the students participated in a community Arbor Day tree-planting project. For this years project, the students, with help from the county forester and other FFS personnel, a Lake Butler city employee and parents, planted 20 flowering Dogwoods and Shumard Oak around the grounds of City Hall. Over the thirteen years, it is estimated that the sixth graders have planted over 260 trees. The trees for the Arbor Day planting were provided by an Urban and Community Forestry Arbor Day Grant from FFS.

After much prayerful consideration, it is with great humility and optimism that I, Garry Seay, announce my candidacy for the office of Sheriff of Union County. I do not take the tremendous responsibility of this position lightly. I seek the post only because I believe with all sincerity that I am the most qualified for it by virtue of my experience, training and dedication to the citizens of our county. My name is not synonymous with prestige, power, wealth or entitlement. Indeed, my legacy is just the opposite. My parents were poor, hard-working folks who struggled to make ends meet to raise their large family in Worthington Springs. I barely remember my father. He was tragically killed in a sawmill accident when I was just 4 years old, leaving my mother alone to raise nine children. Although she didnt even finish high school and had never worked outside the home, her singleminded determination to keep the family together taught me valuable lessons in hard work, sacrifice and grit. When I turned 14, I began working after school and during summers at the same sawmill where my father had worked. My income helped provide for our family. We did not have the material things that others had. Growing up, I was often embarrassed because of our station in life. Even so, I did have pride in my community. I remember well when Worthington Springs got its first street lights. Before that momentous occasion, it had been an almost pitch black little town with only dim lights shining through windows denoting the homes of the residents there. Such events shaped me, enabled me to look beyond myself and instilled in me a love of our small county and the people in it. I was drafted into the U.S. Army when I was 18 years old. I had rarely been out of Union County at that time. I left Worthington Springs and was eventually deposited in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, for heavy artillery training. My next stop was the front line combat zone in Vietnam. I was wounded in action there. After my tour of duty in Vietnam, I was stationed in Ft. Lewis, Washington, where I served as honor guard on funeral detail of fallen soldiers. I left Union County as a scared, nave boy and returned as a man. My Army service spanned a total of six yearstwo years active service and four years in the Army reserve. This period of my life instilled in me a larger worldview and love of our country. After being honorably discharged from the Army as a sergeant and decorated war veteran, I returned to Union County. Sheriff John Whitehead hired me as a dispatcher in 1973. I furthered my education and training to be promoted to jailor, then certified correctional officer and, eventually, deputy sheriff. After John Whitehead retired, I continued my service under the leadership of his son, Sheriff Jerry Whitehead. Over the course of nearly four decades, I continued my education to complete hundreds of hours of training to become proficient in all areas of law enforcement including Homicide Investigation, Crime Scene Procedure, Narcotics Investigation, Weapons of Mass Destruction Preparednessjust to name a few. I worked my way up over the years through the ranks from patrol deputy to sergeant, to lieutenant, to captain, to major and second-incommand to the sheriff. I served as chief investigator for over 15 years and during that time Union County had one of the states highest case clearance rates. The personal side of my life revolves around my family. My wife and love of my life is Brenda Harvey Seay. The joys and blessings that we hold most dear are our daughters, Sara Wilson and Amanda Maddox, our precious grandchildren Grant, Emily and Jace, and our son-inlaw Mike Maddox, as well as our large extended family. Like you, my family is precious to me. Like you, I want to help make our community the best place for them to live and feel cherished and protected. I believe most of you share that sentiment. I am a simple man. Nothing has been handed to me and I do not think anything is owed to me. I have worked hard for my place in life. I am the first to admit that I am not a perfect person, but I strive to live a life of honesty and integrity. I believe that most of you can relate to that way of life. Like me, you understand what it takes to provide for your loved ones: hard work, commitment, endurance, sacrifice. Like me, you want to instill those fundamental values in your children and grandchildren. Like me, you want to live in a place that fosters that way of life. I am dedicated to Union County and am committed to protect and serve its citizens. I have spent my adult life in service to others. If elected, I pledge to do everything within my power to make our county a better place to live. I believe most of you want the same thing. You, too, want Union County to be a safe and nurturing place to live, work and raise your family. I intend to conduct my campaign in an honorable manner, without demeaning remarks regarding any opponent. I urge my supporters and opponents to do likewise. I, like many of you, intend to live the rest of my life in Union County. Lets not let differing political views cause loss of dignity and bitterness for years to come. I have no ill will toward any rival for the post. Specifically, in seeking the office of sheriff, I mean no disrespect toward the Whitehead family. John Whitehead was a mentor to me when I was a young man. Jerry Whitehead was a very close friend for many years. I have always held the entire Whitehead family in high regard. This race is not, however, about personal relationships or traditions. It is simply about who is most capable of fulfilling the duties of the job. I believe in my heart that I am the most qualified to serve Union County in the capacity of sheriff. This political race can be equated to applying for a job. The only difference is that instead of a CEO or company-appointed committee deciding who gets the position, the decision falls upon you, the voters of Union County. I have applied for the position because I believe that I am the most qualified for it. I am the only candidate who has worked in every capacity of the Sheriffs Officefrom dispatcher to interim sheriff. I am the only candidate who has almost 40 years of job-specific training. I am the only candidate who has decades of investigative experience in solving real crimes. There is no substitute for experience when it comes to fulfilling the tremendous responsibility of keeping our community safe. If you believe that experience matters, then please vote for me. If elected, I pledge to be a hands-on, working sheriff. I will uphold the law and treat all with respect and fairness. Your concerns will be addressed in a prompt manner with personal contact and follow-up review of each reported incident. I will implement improved patrol and crime prevention procedures. I will be accessible, open and available. I promise to conduct the office of sheriff with professionalism, integrity and honesty. If you think that I am the most qualified applicant for the post, please vote for me. Feel free to contact me at 352-275-2052 if you have any questions about me or where I stand on issues facing our county. Your vote matters and is appreciated. complete training The Reception and Medical Center who completed their Basic Recruit Training on April 24. Members of were in attendance.

The entrance to the dance floor was lined with purple, pink and turquoise balloons. Stars were plastered everywhere. A huge disco ball rotated over the dance floor and laser lights flashed. A good variety of food and music were provided. DJ Kris Carlisle was a hit. Taylor Wilkins and Austin Dukes were crowned this years prom queen and king. The night ended with the participants carrying away gift bags full of favors. Thanks to the work of select students and faculty, the prom was a huge success.

An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is Battle Stations. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. Battle Stations is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

Most outdoors activities pose certain risks to their participants, including threats by animals, insects, diseases and snakes. Despite our preference of entertaining those noted threats, the most common one during the summer probably comes from the sun. Some of the best collections of work, precautions and warnings about toxic chemicals and sunscreen products come from the Environmental Working Group. It has a very informative and easily accessed website, which is the source of most the following data. The proliferation rate of melanomathe most deadly form of skin cancerhas tripled over the past 35 years. Despite the fact that sunscreen will protect skin against ultraviolet damage, there is little proof that the different sunscreen products prevent cancer. Consequently, three frequently quoted warnings provided by the Environmental Working Group are to cover up, seek shade and avoid the midday sun. Many sunscreen products promote the presence of a wide SPF spectrum. UVB rays cause sunburn, but UVA rays penetrate deeper, causing skin damage and possibly cancer. SPF sunscreen ratings of 15-50 are recommended, but many advertise SPF ratings above 50. SPF ratings above 50 provide no additional protection and might cause additional skin damage. Additional recommendations provided by Environmental Working Group include: Do not use powder products. They are not FDA approved. Some products contain oxybenzone, which is a synthetic estrogen that penetrates the skin deeply and can disrupt the hormone system. Some products are in a spray form and might contain harmful products. Some products contain vitamin A, which Environmental 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 CRIME DOESNT PAYB UT WE DO!REWARDS UP TO $3,000 CRIME DOESNT PAYB UT WE DO!P AID FOR BY THE FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE CRIME STOPPERS TRUST FUNDREWARDS UP TO $3,000R EMAIN ANONYMOUSC ALL TOLL FREE S TOPPE RSSubmit a TIP ON-LINE a t: www.F CCrimeStoppers.com Members of MLS systems providing excellent access to properties & listing exposure! www.SwiftCreekRealty.netOur Locations: Lake Butler12469 West SR 100 32054Lake City1140 SW Bascom Norris Dr. Ste. 106 32025 Gainesville3917 NW 97th Blvd. 32606 (800) 833-0499 (386) 496-0499 CUSTOM BUILT HOME with S/S appliances! 1.4+/Acres!$224,900!

The theater was filled. I read the book about a year ago, and found the movie a little different. The movie starts out telling this is a true story I believe it. In the book, the four year old boy, who went to Heaven, tells his father that he saw the Blessed Mother in Heaven, and she has an altar in front of God the Father, where she prays for us every day, and that she takes care of Jesus in Heaven, just like she took care of him on the earth when He was a baby That part was not mentioned in the movie. I didnt pick who would by my mother, and no one else on the earth picked their mother Jesus did, and He didnt pick any losers. When you dilute the truth by omission, it is not the whole truth. I guess the Blessed Mother is still too heavy for some people to handle. Read Luke 1:46:48 Thank you Frank the Baker Movie has something missing Dear Editor: Our nation has recognized Law Day since 1958, when President Eisenhower issued a proclamation recognizing the role that the rule of law played in the formation of our country. In 1961, Congress officially established Law Day on May 1st of every year by enacting 36 U.S.C. 113, which states, in pertinent part, that Law Day, U.S.A., is a special day of celebration by the people of the United States (1) in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States and of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other and with other countries; and (2) for the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life. Each year, Law Day celebrates a different theme. Past years have explored First Amendment freedoms, the quest for equality, and the changing nature of law in the 21st century. Other years have commemorated milestones such as Lincolns Bicentennial and the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. This years theme is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. You may ask yourself why it matters to you. Consider this: In 1868, President Andrew Johnson avoided removal from office by one vote. In 1940, the Selective Service Act was amended by a single vote to extend the draft term from one year to two and a half years. More recently, in the 2008 election for the Alaska House of Representatives, incumbent Mike Kelly beat out challenger Karl Kassel by only four votes. And of course, who can forget the pregnant, hanging, bulging, and dimpled chads that permeated the 2000 election for President of the United States? Many of us take voting for granted. In fact, barely more than 51% of eligible voters showed up to the polls for the 2000 presidential election. In contrast, Western Europe has averaged 77% voter turnout since 1945. As we observe the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we must all reflect on the importance of our precious right to elect another human being into a position of governance. That right, as described by Theodore Hesburgh, president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, is a civic sacrament, and we must all strive not only to exercise it ourselves, but to ensure that our fellow citizens are free to exercise it as well. Peg OConnor, Gainesville Chair, 8th Judicial Circuit Bar Association Law Day Committee President-Elect, North Central Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar Association Why every vote matters Dear Editor: Every year since President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day in 1958, the United States has marked May 1 as a day of national recognition of our great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law. The theme for Law Day, May 1, 2014, as designated by the American Bar Association, is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The theme of voting rights is timely with the nation preparing to commemorate the 50th anniversaries of two landmark pieces of legislation: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. At the heart of both these statutes is a guiding principle: that equality of opportunity to participate in the Nations civic and economic life is a fundamental right of all Americans and ought to be protected as such. While there is still much work to do, these laws have been crucial in the progress toward this goal. Securing every Americans right to vote is a central part of this struggle. As President Lyndon B. Johnson pointed out in his 1965 Message to Congress on Voting: In our system, the first right and most vital of all our rights is the right to vote. ... It is from the exercise of this right that the guarantee of all our other rights flows. Unless the right to vote be secure and undenied, all other rights are insecure and subject to denial for all our citizens. However, the right to vote is far from secure. A recent report by the bipartisan Presidential Commission on Election Administration noted that voters frequently stand in long lines caused by broken voting machines, confusing ballots, and untrained or undertrained poll workers. This is completely unacceptable in a modern democracy. Local, state, and federal officials must work together to overcome these barriers to voting participation. Participating in the political process is both our right and our duty as citizens. This Law Day, let us reflect upon what each of us can do to protect and promote the voting rights of ourselves and our fellow Americans. It is only by ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to vote that we can be sure, in the words of Abraham Lincoln, that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Peg OConnor, Gainesville Chair, 8th Judicial Circuit Bar Association Law Day Committee President-Elect, North Central Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar Association voting rights on Law Day Dear Editor: The National Day of Prayer this year will be Thursday, May 1. The time this year is 1:00 p.m. This is a change from last year. This is the 63rd year of observance of the National Holiday sat aside by our Presidents of the United States of America. The leadership of our country has been calling for national days of prayer since George Washington was president. The Prayer Rally will be held in the court yard of the Bradford County Courthouse, located on U S 301 North in Starke. Everyone is invited to attend. This will be the last year that I will serve as coordinator of the National Day of Prayer here in Bradford County. I have moved to Georgia, and I want to say thank you to all of you who have supported this event each year. Most especially thank you to the County Commissioners of Bradford County for making the NDP a part of their yearly calendar. Thank you to the pastors who have encouraged their congregations to attend. And thank you to the Mens Prayer Fellowship Dear Editor: Mr. Sullivan, whom I dont know and apparently you dont know me, let me set the record straight. I worked for the Honorable Sheriff John Whitehead, Honorable Sheriff Jerry Whitehead, Capt. Cynthia Whitehead at state Prison when all treated me like family, as long as I did my job!

You should walk in my shoes, land yes elections will be the final decision in my opinion.

Buddy Wright, who we featured in the previous Fins, Fur and Tales for his record bass catch some years ago, purchased minnows from Bald Eagle a couple of weeks ago and headed for Santa Fe Lake. Later that day, he returned to the store on his way home with a large catch of crappie full of roe. Tyson indicated that the catch filled a 5-gallon can and included mostly 2to 2.5-pound fish.

down in celebratory fashion. Everything in the pockets of my jacket fell out, McCormick said. Lost in Limbo was the result of a class project in which students were to incorporate toys into still-life photos. In her description accompanying the photo, McCormick wrote, I produced a composite photograph of a teddy bear lost in a limbo state. I set the tone for the piece by symbolizing lost time with the clock, made in the fashion of a television, which the teddy bear appears to be watching. To enhance the interest of the subject, I experimented with recreating an old-fashion photo using Adobe Photoshop. McCormick also submitted a photo of a spiral staircase and one of a dog peeking out from underneath a larger dogtitled, Hide and Seekfor League for Innovation consideration. The Hide and Seek photo and one of her ceramics pieces were the submissions she felt most confident about, McCormick said. The selection of Lost in Limbo was a bit of a surprise. That was the one I thought going in, Oh, theyre going to find this one cheesy and overdone, but it was the one picked, McCormick said. Art has held a fascination for McCormick since she was in elementary school. She remembers creating a ceramic piece in the likeness of Disney Main Street, USA character Scoop Sanderson. McCormick said she didnt think the piece was very well done, but admitted you could tell it was Scoop Sanderson. My art teacher was just amazed at what I could produce, McCormick said.

She actually went to college with a plan to focus on dance, but she eventually returned to her artwork at the encouragement of her younger sister, Ronda. Immersing herself fully into art became almost addictive. The more I got back into it, it was like, What more can I take? What more can I grasp? What more can they offer me? The more I learned, the more I found out, the more excited I got, McCormick said. McCormick won the first-ever Santa Fe College competition in which she entered artwork. Despite the fact she showed an artistic talent as early as elementary school, she described winning as pure luck. I was not sure how I was going to do, McCormick said. I didnt know what to think going into it. I was kind of just the new person on the block, whereas most of the people who entered had been (at Santa Fe) for a couple of years. The entry that won was a banjo piece that was constructed completely of recyclable materials as per show requirements. McCormick entered the same piece in Alachua Countys annual Trashformations showa recycled-art contest for middle school, high school and college studentsand earned second place. McCormick, who had taken part in 10 to 15 shows, received some incredibly good birthday news recently. A family friend whos a professional artist invited McCormick to be a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association for a year. The artist also offered to serve as a mentor for McCormick. It was a very wonderful surprise, McCormick said. Being a member of the Gainesville Fine Arts Association offers McCormick the chance to set up her own booth at association festivals so that more people get to know her and her work. That, and having an artist mentor, will help make a transition to more of a professional level. Needless to say, McCormick has been the recent recipient of quite a bit of good news.

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.

BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Williston pitcher Trent Johnson struck out 11 and doubled in the game-winning run in leading the Red Devils to a 3-0 win over Union County in the District 71A baseball championship game on April 24 in Williston. The 6-4, 180-pound Santa Fe College signee allowed three hits and no walks. Union County threatened to score in the fourth inning when Cole Kite reached first by beating out a throw from third base. Garrett Hersey then singled, advancing Kite to second with no outs. Johnson then struck out Chris Starling, and Williston catcher Haden Cano picked off Hersey at first. Corey Hersey then grounded out to the shortstop to end the inning. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Fort White scored two runs on errors in the top of the eighth, while pitcher Rhett Willis struck out eight batters in three innings Lowery admitted. We beat everybody during the regular season. We won all our meets. I thought we would be top five. I had no idea that we could win it. Junior Dakota Hodge, who was the runner-up in the 129 class, said, We thought we had a chance to win. Thats all we needed. Hodge finished with a 435-pound total to finish behind 5 pounds behind West Floridas Roland Stark. Hodges bench press of 235 pounds was 10 pounds better than every other lifter in the class. I figured I might actually come in around third or fourth, said Hodge, who had a clean and jerk total of 200, but then luckily someone scratched their last few lifts. Blanton had a bench press of 255 and a clean and jerk of 240 to finish with a 495 total and place behind 139-pound class champion Ronnie Tucker of Altha and runner-up Isaac Gonzalez of LaBelle. Tucker and Gonzalez had totals of 555 and 510. Honestly, I didnt care what place I got as long as I got our team points, Blanton said. Musselman finished with a personal-best total of 600 poundsa bench press of 310 and a clean and jerk of 290. That placed him behind Tavares Jose Barajas, who won the 169 class with a 635 total, and Althas 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 of Ag IN HAMPTON AUTO REPAIRS SALES SERVICE Major & Minor Repairs Brake Work Foreign & Domestic A/C Repair Transmission Specialist Low Labor Rates Computer Engine Diagnostics and MORE!Family Owned & Operated for over 20 years!

Going in, I had already looked at all the totals from all the other (state-qualifying meets), Musselman said. I knew I was going to get within the top three. I went in there just knowing if I did my best, Id be able to score for our team. Steve Beverly is just a sophomore, but he apparently had no jitters as he was able to place fourth in the 129 class with a bench press of 230 and a clean and jerk of 195. Beverlys total of 425 actually tied him with North Bay Havens Gavyn Collins and Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, but he placed ahead of those two lifters because of the weigh-in tiebreaker. Those three points Beverly earned by placing fourth were huge. Without him, we dont win it, Lowery said. Though finishing out of medal contention, senior Brandon Johnson did place in the top 10, placing ninth in the 154 class with a 515 total. He had a bench press of 275 and a clean and jerk of 240. Senior Darein Gilio placed 12 th in the 199 class with a 585 total. He had a bench press of 300 and a clean and jerk of 285. Ill be honest with you, Lowery said. When Darein didnt score a point, I thought, We cant win it. This years field, though, proved to be pretty competitive. Aside from Keystone and Baker finishing in a tie for first, three schoolsArnold, Suwannee, West Floridafinished tied for second, while two schools Altha, Warner Christian finished tied for third. Plus, each of the individual state champions were from different schools. Lowery talked to Vernons coach prior to the start of the meet, saying a bunch of schools had to score points to give someone other than Baker County a chance. Baker County was the state runner-up in 2012 and 2013 and won four straight state titles from 2008 to 2011. The good thing about this years meet was everybody had a lot of good kids who could score points, Lowery said. Nine schools were within five points of winning. Lowery said Keystone placing first is quite an accomplishment considering that it has to lift against a lot of larger schools that it wouldnt compete against in most other sports. Thats why the end result left him feeling blessed. God is awesome, Lowery said. Thats what I thought. Stop and thinkwe had six kids lifting. Four of them placed, we had no (individual) state champions and we still won a state championship. That doesnt happen. This year, it did, and it made for quite a return trip home. Oh, on that ride I was pumped, Blanton said. I was so excited the whole ride home. I had the trophy in my arms. I was looking at it the whole time. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer It was a rematch of one of last seasons Class 4A regional quarterfinal games, but there would be no seventh-inning rally for the Bradford High School softball team this year as the Tornadoes just couldnt get the hits they needed in a 2-1 loss to visiting South Sumter on April 23. South Sumter freshman pitcher Marissa Mesiemore, who hit a solo home run in the sixth inning that proved to be the game winner, gave up just two hits in propelling the Raiders (16-8) to this past Tuesdays semifinals, where they hosted P.K. Yonge (22-3). She did a great job of getting the ball inside on our hands, Bradford head coach Daniel Davis said of Mesiemore. We had a tough time hitting the ball harda lot of pop-up outs in the infield when she got inside on us. We just never really made the adjustment to turn on that pitch. Bradford (18-8) hosted South Sumter in last years regional quarterfinals as well, scoring two runs in the bottom of the seventh to win 3-2 and fuel a run to the state semifinals. This year, the Tornadoes did put the tying run on in the seventh with no outs when Jaci Atkinson drew a walk. Mesiemore, though, struck out Sabina Watson and Lindsey Wiggins before forcing Mackenzie Gault to hit an infield pop-up. We just didnt do enough offensively to be able to pull it out, Davis said. If you give up one or two runs, you feel like youre going to have a chance to win, but we just couldnt put the runs on the board. Mesiemore reached on a dropped fly ball to lead off the top of the second. Bradford pitcher Ashton Adkins struck out the next two batters, but hit Vicki Medina with a pitch to put two on with two outs. Shelby Spruill then hit a ground ball to third, but an error on the play at first allowed Tyana Ramirez, who was running for Mesiemore, to score and put the Raiders up 1-0. Thats one we dont make very often, Davis said of the two-out miscue. South Sumter ends BHS softball season Jarvis DeSue and Austin Long competed for Bradford and Union County, respectively, at the Florida High School Athletic Association Finals in boys weightlifting, with each finishing just outside of the top 10 of his weight class. Unions Long competed in the 129-pound class, placing 12 th with a total of 380. His bench press of 215 pounds was the fifth-highest total in the class. Longs overall total was 45 pounds less than that of Choctawhatchees Justin Scott, who earned the last medal in the class with a sixth-place finish. Bradfords DeSue had the ninth-highest bench press total (280) in the 154 class and finished 13 th with a 495 overall total. He was 90 pounds behind Baker Countys Dalton Dyal, who earned the last medal with a sixth-place finish. Bradfords DeSue, Unions Long miss topout of Santa Fe Lake. One fisherman produced a 50-pound catch that consisted of only six catfish. The fisherman was using crappie minnows for bait. The pungent smell of fish beds was noticeable at the boat launch during the April 24 Sampson Lake Bass Tournament. The wind was blowing in a southeasterly direction, and some of the fishermen noted that the smell was very strong on the northeastern shore. The timing would suggest that shellcrackers or a combination of shellcrackers and bluegill would most likely be responsible for those bedding indicators. These fish are probably being stimulated by the forthcoming new moon, which will reach its full phase on April 29. The saltwater front seems to have been dampened by Easters cool weather. Most inshore reports remained centered around flounder, trout, reds and black drum. There are reports of whiting on east coast beaches, and for those who look for fishing variety, there are reports of croakers and yellow-mouth trout in the St. Johns River around Green Cove Springs. Reports of summer cobia near the beaches are spotty at best. Hunting season in Florida is over with the exception of hogs and rabbits, which can be hunted all year. Georgias spring gobbler season will continue through May 15. Bass tourney results At the April 23 Bald Eagle Tournament, Brooks Morrell and Chris Kadlec placed first. Joey Yarborough and Ryan Rentz were second, while John Breton and Chuck Foster were third. Kadlec landed the big fish. Trevor Corbitt and Drew Rogers teamed up for first at the April 24 Sampson Lake Tournament. John (last name not available) and Jason Jordan placed second, while Jonathon Nash and Richard Kingston were third. Nash had the big fish. FINS Continued from 4B Bradford High School senior catcher David Hall signed a letter of intent to play at Jacksonvilles Trinity Baptist College during a signing ceremony on April 25. Hall will join teammate/ second baseman Wyatt Collins, who signed with Trinity Baptist on April 11. See next weeks Regional News section for a more in-depth story. Trinity Baptist signs BHS baseballs Hall Fort White defeats Tornadoes in or relief to lead the Indians to a 6-4 win over Bradford in the championship game of the District 5-4A baseball tournament on April 24 in Alachua. The Tornadoes (17-10) held two leads, including a one-run lead going into the seventh. We just couldnt close the door, said Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan, whose team will travel to play the Villages in a regional quarterfinal game on Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. It was 4-3 in the top of the seventh when Fort Whites Willie Carter launched a home run over the fence in left field to tie the game. Duncan accepted responsibility for the homer, saying it was not the intent to throw anything near the plate that Carter could get a hold of. Carter was responsible for Fort White beating the Tornadoes 10-9 early in the regular season. We just shouldve put him on and not thrown to him, Duncan said.

away from first baseman Austin Green, allowing Willistons Noah Faircloth to score from second. After the game, Tomlinson credited Johnsons pitching performance as well as his offensive production. Hes got a bright future ahead of him, Tomlinson said of Johnson. Hes going to college for a reason. Both teams advance to the Class 1A regional semifinals on Tuesday, May 6. Williston will host Wildwood, while Union County will travel to Pierson to take on Taylor High School. Austin Langworthy led off the Williston seventh with a double to the gap between left and center fields. Cano then singled, advancing Langworthy to second. Johnson doubled to right-center field, driving in both runners. Williston scored an additional run in the sixth inning after Union County head coach Brian Tomlinson replaced starting pitcher Jordan Bryant with Ty Cook. With the bases loaded, Johnson grounded to third base. The Tigers got the first out with a force play at home, but catcher Corey Herseys throw to first got A fielding error put Fort Whites Brent Beach on with one out in the top of the eighth. Bradford pitcher Caleb Polk struck out the next batter before giving up a single to Jayson Brock, putting runners on the corners. A throwing error on a ground ball by Ryan Ellis allowed the winning runs to score. It was that kind of night for the Bradford defense, which committed errors in all but three innings. They were in this game because of our errors, Duncan said of Fort White. We just did not make the plays when we needed to. An error allowed Fort White (14-11) to score the games first run. Leadoff batter Brock opened the game with a single and eventually scored on a dropped fly ball to put the Indians up 1-0. Bradford answered in the bottom of the first. Leadoff Jackson Reddish was hit by a pitch. Holden Huggins entered the game to run for Reddish, stealing second and third before scoring on Wyatt Barnes single. The Tornadoes went up 2-1 in the third when Carson Yowell, who reached on a double, scored on Jacob Lukes sacrifice fly. Fort White tied the score at 2-2 in the fourth. Austin Dupree hit a leadoff single and advanced on a bunt by Kodey Owens before eventually scoring on a bunt by Corey Pentolino. Bradford pushed two runs across in the fifth. Yowell drew a leadoff walk and advanced on Barnes sacrifice bunt before Luke drew a walk. David Hall drilled a single down the firstbase line to score both runners. Barnes and Matt Stanwix-Hay each went 2-for-4. Stanwix-Hay was the only batter to get a hit off of Willis, who entered the sixth inning in relief of starting pitcher Dupree. The Tornadoes regional quarterfinal opponent is coming off of its third straight district championship, but the Villages (15-8) was a Class 1A program prior to this season. The Buffalo defeated Trinity Catholic 7-6 to claim the District 6 crown. The winner between Bradford and the Villages will advance to the Tuesday, May 6, semifinals to play the winner between Fort White and Trinity Catholic (188). Bradford would have to travel to face either team. Visit www.StarkeJournal.com to view more photos from this game. (Membership required.) Tornadoes advanced by defeating Raiders Bradford was held hitless in the district semifinals, but still advanced to the championship game, defeating third seed and host Santa Fe 2-1 on April 22. Though they didnt have a hit, the Tornadoes took advantage of three walks and a hit batter, as well as good baserunning by Huggins, who was 2-for-2 on stolen-base attempts. His counterpart may have thrown a no-hitter, but Bradford pitcher Luke (4-1) fared pretty well himself, giving up just two hits and striking out nine in a complete-game performance. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, May 1, 2014 KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR BOARD MEETINGS WILL BE HELD ON THE 1 st TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH AT 6:00 P.M.

Kaylen Chitty, who entered the game to run for Adkins, was left stranded on first as Mesiemore struck one batter out and forced two others to hit fly balls to the outfield. Adkins, who gave up six hits and no walks, recorded one of her 11 strikeouts to open the top of the sixth. Mesiemore, though, drove a 3-2 pitch over the fence in center field to put the Raiders up 2-1. South Sumters McKayla Peninger was the games only batter with multiple hits, going 2-for-3. It was a tough way for seniors Adkins, Gault and Wiggins to go out. Davis said the three players always gave maximum effort and that their leadership will be missed. Thats tough to replace, Davis said. Itll be interesting to see who steps up as leaders next year with a good group coming back. Five starters on this years team are juniors, while one is a sophomore. All but one of those players were starters on the 2013 team that had so much success. I think theyll come back hungry, Davis said. I hope that this can be kind of a springboard into next year for them to be focused and ready to go. REGION Continued from 8B Hay makes a throw from BHS Continued from 8B UCHS Continued from 8B
