Mills, 35, and stepdaughter Marissa Shanta Griffin, 19, during a domestic dispute in Lake Butler. It occurred around 1:30 a.m. at 810 Southeast Seventh Avenue. Both women were transported to UF Health at Shands in Gainesville and were reported in stable condition. On Tuesday, Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead reported that both were back at home. The suspect dragged his wife into a bedroom and shot her four timestwice in the chest, once in the stomach and once in the thigh. Her daughter busted down the door to rescue her, at which time the suspect shot his stepdaughter in the thigh. He also attempted to shoot her in the head numerous times but the gun failed to fire. He then fled on foot to 1038 Southwest First Terrace where he broke a window to gain entry into a shed there. With the help of neighbors, the Union County Sheriffs Office, along with the Union Correctional Institution K-9 unit and other agencies, tracked him down by mid-morning. UCSO originally thought that Mills might flee to Jacksonville since he is from that area. He is currently being held in the Union County Jail and charged with two counts of attempted murder along with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, kidnappingfalse imprisonment and burglary of a structure. His .38-caliber handgun was recovered near a shed at the home of the victims. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was called in to process the scene. Thanks to all of our citizens for assisting us in this capture, UCSO posted on its Facebook page. Whitehead also thanked the Department of Corrections for their help. The suspect has a history of arrests. On Oct. 12 of last year, Lavar Mills was arrested Oct. 12 by UCSO deputies for driving while license suspended or revokedhabitual offender. He was previously arrested on Aug. 24 by deputies for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, possession of drugs and intent to deliver/distribute drugs. Fortunately, his stepdaughter Marissa Griffin will be able to walk with fellow classmates on Friday to graduate from Union County High School. She plans to go to college to become a nurse or lawyer. And, amazingly, her mom Lakesha Mills will be there to see it. It will make a memorable week that much more special.

Main Street Lake Butler, FL 32054 Subscription Rate in Trade Area $39.00 per year: $20.00 six months Outside Trade Area: $39.00 per year: $20.00 six months I would like to introduce myself. I am Brad Whitehead, Sheriff of Union County. The office of Sheriff is and remains the only elected office that is the voice of and for the people that separates the fine line of order from tyranny. I am officially announcing my candidacy for Sheriff of Union County. This is the place I was raised and have called home my entire life. We all have an important decision to make in November for the person who will lead this county. I want to share a little about myself both personally and professionally to demonstrate why I will be the right person for the right reasons to lead our county. Tradition, pride, and faith run deep in my family. I remember growing up in our community and having a great desire to follow in the footsteps of my grandfather and my father. As a youngster, you choose a person of admiration, someone that you can look up to and pattern your life after. My grandfather and my father along with my mother set a steady course for my brother and me. We were taught to work hard and always be compassionate. We knew the value of friendship and we knew the value of family. A man is only as good as his word, is a statement that was instilled in me at an early age and is the foundation on which I stand today. I attended Union County Schools where I believe even today sets a standard that other Florida school s envy. It produces pride because of the great teachers that nourish our children with knowledge and keeps them thirsty for mo re. I know much of the pride I feel exists due to my mother being a longtime educator here in Union County. She found the time to raise her children and give of herself to the students in our county. The pride also spilled over from my father. I was extremely proud of being the son of the Sheriff. He always took the time to be part of every school activity with my brother and me. He al so made sure that other kids no matter what walk of life they came from had the opportunity to participate in the excitement of scho ol activities. I deeply wanted to work hard to be a contributor to our county as part of the family tradition. After graduation from high school I set out on the course to prepare myself for the very position th at I hold today. I began work with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a crime analyst to help pay my way through college I graduated from Florida State University with a BS in Criminology in 1998. After graduation I went to work with the Florida Department of Treasury and Insurance under the Bureau of Fire and Arson. As a criminal detective with the state, I worked many crimes ranging from serial arson, murders, bombings, and complex frauds in many of our judicial circuits. I was also assigned to various task forces with other local, state, and federal authorities in the Jacksonville and Ocala areas. In 2003, I was blessed to get the opportunity to return home to serve with our professionals in the Department of Corrections. Learning from some of the finest officers and administrators, I was able to work as a prison inspect or and as an assistant warden of both the Union Correctional Institution and the Florida State Prison. My admiration remains with al l of those who are on the front lines of protection every day from some of the worst criminals in our state. An important part of leading a governmental agency is the ability to formulate and manage the taxpay ers money. This too, sets me apart, not only in my criminal investigative experience but my fiscal ability. My time as Assist ant Warden with the Department of Corrections afforded me the opportunity to prepare and manage budgets on a day to day basis. Experie nce does matter! I believe that the security of a family unit remains my greatest achievement. My wife, Jennifer, an d our two children still amaze me every day. I realize what an awesome responsibility I have in leading my children and instilling the values in them that were pressed upon my heart as a child. As a son, husband, and father I have learned that alone I can do nothing. It is only through God and His guidance that I am able to accomplish anything. We often think that our heroes are invincible, maybe infallible, and will always be there. Although I have spent my entire career preparing for the day I would seek the Office of Sheriff, I did not know it would be thrust upon me so quickly. In December of this past year, me and everyone in my family suffered major heartbreak. We lost a person that earned the respect of so many in this county and state. Many of you called him friend; I called him dad. This past January, the Governor of this state under our constitution had to appoint a Sheriff to ser ve the remaining term of my father. This was not a popularity contest. It was an appointment that was made by the Governor bas ed on the recommendations of many diverse professionals and leaders in this state and the public and private sector to represent the will of the people. I remain so very humbled to have been selected based upon the qualification review. In announcing my candidacy to you, I can only encourage you to be part of the process. Please join me in my continued efforts to create positive change by working together to protect our children and young adults from the harsh r eality of drugs. Lets push to rid ourselves of this plague! I will work tirelessly to hear and address your concerns. I will always keep an open door policy so voices may be heard and people helped. The Sheriff, in its most humble beginnings, is a conservator of pea ce. I accept this responsibility for our future. Ethical, moral, and professional character must be the guiding principle for any of fice, especially the Sheriff. The people of Union County deserve and should expect a leader with the capabilities and a vision. Pleas e feel free to come by the Sheriffs Office and share your visions as well. Thank you to so many who have supported me thus far. I look forward to continuing to serve you in N ovember. God bless you. Brad Whitehead Brad Whitehead announces run for Sheriff PD. POL. ADV.

12A Union County Times Thursday, May 29, 2014 FREE book by doctor reveals what the drug companies don't want you to know! Your sex life and erection can now survive DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 800-777-1922 BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The New River Regional Landfill appears to be getting closer to a workable gas-toenergy project. The goal is to turn the methane-rich gas produced by decomposing waste into a profitmaking renewable energy project. Alan Beer of Florida Energy Partners walked the board through plans for the project, including how a power plant would be constructed on site to feed electricity to the grid through Clay Electrics lines. The party interested in purchasing the power is Duke Energy. Although there was no power purchase agreement yet, there was a letter of intent to enter into negotiations. That is closer than the landfill has been to selling its gas, which is currently burnt off to comply with air quality standards. Were just burning money out there right now, said Commissioner Doyle Thomas. According to Beer, Duke is interested in increasing its use of renewable energy and is even willing to pay line capacity charges, which gives this project a huge advantage. Any contract would be a minimum of 15 years, although the project would is expected to last beyond 20 years. Two engines would produce four megawatts of power, but the addition of a third generator later on could boost that amount. Beer said the power purchase agreement would include an early termination clause for the landfill, but not for Duke, so the board could pursue a better offer if one comes along, but Duke could not walk away and leave the board without a customer. As long as the plant is producing at least 86 percent of the time, the association would receive full payment. Beer said another factor making Duke an attractive partner is the higher cost of its power when compared to other utilities, and that cost is only expected to rise. FEPs proposal differs from a previous proposal the association was considering because this time the association is investing in constructing the power plant. In order to do so, Executive Director Darrell ONeal said the board could borrow from itself, taking all of the funding set aside for long-term care and using it for the construction of the gasto-energy project. According to information given to the board, $5.8 million is currently set aside for longterm planning. Profits from the gas-to-energy project are anticipated to increase annually from around $406,000 in the first year to nearly $1.6 million for the year 2029. The association would pay itself back with interest from the proceeds, setting aside the money for its long-term planning goals, and enjoy a profit to boot. At the end of this 15 years, well be 100 percent funded without having to add another dime in the account, ONeal said. If figures prove true, the profit will be close to $7.1 million total (minus depreciation) at the end of 15 years, plus more than $9 million for planning. Beer said if the board could still explore what other customers might be out there, but Dukes interest is proof this is a viable project. Theres no reason not to move forward, he said. The board authorized staff to enter into negotiations with FEP for the design-build contract. FEP will work with Duke on the power purchase agreement.

said. I returned to my little boy and little girl safe and sound. During a later stint at the Pentagon, Crawford had the chance to visit the Vietnam Memorial. He located Liddells name on the wall. I ran my thumb across it, Crawford said. My heart rushed with memories from the past. Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, May 29, 2014 News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region FEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Retired Army Col. Jim Crawford will never forget Robert Liddell, a man who put duty to his country ahead of early retirement. Liddell never made it to retirement, making the ultimate sacrifice when he was killed in combat during the Vietnam War. Today, I honor and remember 1 st Sgt. Robert Liddell, Crawford said. I remember what an honor it was to serve with himsuch a great soldier. Crawford was the keynote speaker at the Camp Blanding Joint Training Centers Memorial Day ceremony. He referenced the book of Ecclesiastes in describing the mixture of emotions that come with remembering those who gave their lives in service to this countrythere is a time to weep for them, but also a time to remember sharing a laugh with them; a time when those who would become true heroes could be embraced, and a time when they are not around to embrace. There was a time to love them, and that time will be forever, Crawford said. There was a time for war, and they gave us a time for peace. These times, like today, we honor them by posting flags of the United States on their hallowed graves for the supreme sacrifice made for you and me. Most likely, each of you, though, has someone special in mind who you would like to honor. For Crawford, that special person is Liddell. Crawford was assigned to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where he commanded a signal company of 172 men preparing to go to Vietnam. I began to receive young soldiers from basic training with little or no experience at all, Crawford said. An old sergeant once told Crawford, Son, there are no heroes in combat. You only react based upon how well you are trained. Crawford said that became his motto. With that in mind, he said he was in great need of a good first sergeant to step in for one who was going to retire. Crawford turned to a friend of his who had experience in VietnamLiddell. The position would be a promotion for Liddell, but he already had 17 years of service under his belt and was preparing to retire. Liddell had a family that included two young daughters. I would not have felt bad if he had turned me down, Crawford said. Liddell, though, accepted the position and helped Crawford train the men of the signal company. Crawford said Liddell was a great right-hand man to me. They deployed to Vietnam in June 1969. Liddell was killed a couple of months later. He returned to his grieving wife and daughters, Crawford Giving a salute during the playing of Taps after placing a wreath in honor of fallen military men and women are (foreground, l-r) Col.

youre in downtown Paris or in Starke, Fla., or in Waco, Texas. Former Starke Mayor Steve Futch attended the original shows opening with his wife, Cindy, in 2006. In a June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story, Futch said he wished a fictitious name had been chosen for the city in question, but he added that sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself. It was still enjoyable and entertaining, Futch was quoted as saying in the June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story. Im glad we saw it. Acres. In fact, Caldwell said the town should probably be changed depending upon where the production is playing. For example, her hometown of Waco, Texas, wouldve been the smalltown setting when the musical was performed in Dallas. Its not where the story takes place thats important. Its the story itself. In regard to The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, that story centers around Darlene, the Scrooge-like character who undergoes a transformation, thanks to a visit from the spirit of her deceased fianc. Its really about watching Darlene, Caldwell said. Shes angry. She lost the love of her life. He had to come back and give her permission to move on without him. Thats as universal as you can get. I dont care if being inhabited by an ancient spirit. James said, In rehearsals, when we all got to the ending, we were like, What? The tree is possessed? Choi said the key for the actors is to portray their characters as genuinely believing every absurd thing thats happening around them. Fellow actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed. You have to commit to it because the more sincere you are with all of it, the funnier it makes it, Haldeman said. Mark Chambers, who starred in the original The Great American Trailer Park Musical as Norbert, returns to play Jackie, a proprietor of a business that brings pancakes and sex appeal together. Despite that, he said he believes the sequel is less risqu, referring to the fact that the original musical featured a stripper as one of its main characters. Still, a comedy that features a song entitled, (Expletive) It, Its Christmas, is probably not for everybody. Hippodrome Managing Director Jessica Hurov referenced a June 7, 2006, Gainesville Sun story about the original musical in which someone was quoted as saying, If you have a sense of humor, you should definitely go. If you dont, if youre stuck-up or offended easily, you shouldnt. Hurov said The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical will reward those with a sense of humor. Its raucous, but heartfelt. You have to come, have a drink, sit back and let it wash over you, Hurov said. So, why should you go spend Christmas with the residents of Armadillo Acres? Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, said, We do, I believe, have the biggest Christmas spirit of any neighborhood. Marissa Toogood, who portrays Pickles, quickly added, And maybe the biggest hair. Show times for the discount previews are 7 p.m. on May 28 and 8 p.m. on May 29. The May 30 performance is 8 p.m. Starke residents can purchase tickets at the student price of $15, which is a $30-$35 savings. (A drivers license is required to verify residency.) For tickets, dates, show times and other information, please visit www.thehipp.org, or call 352-375-4477. what time of year it takes place. Caldwell said it takes a look at how a person can overcome a tragic event and move on with life. The show is about ones life journey. You get two choices when you grow older: You either turn out sometimes kind of cynical and bitter and negative, or you kind of become wiser and more accepting and more open, Caldwell said. I think we get to watch that happen with (Darlene). Sounds like serious stuff and there are touching moments in the productionbut youre probably not going to end up crying, unless its from laughing too hard.

LOCAL SERVICE! BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If Charles Dickens awoke from a kegnog bender and decided to start writing, perhaps his classic A Christmas Carol wouldve turned out like the Hippodrome Theatres latest production, The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. The sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical opens Friday, May 30, with discount previews scheduled for Wednesday, May 28, and Thursday, May 29. Characters Betty, Lin (thats short for Linoleum) and Pickles return for what the Gainesville theater describes as a cat-fightin, sunworshippin, chair-throwin, good-ole festive Hipp summer musical good time. Director Lauren Caldwell said when it was learned there was a sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical, which was the best-attended show in Hippodrome history during both of its runs, there was no hesitation in wanting to present it for a summer run. But Christmas in summer? Yes, the show may have allusions to A Christmas Carol with the transformation of character Darlene, brought about with the help of spirits and a dose of electricitybut there is more to the show than Trailer Park Musical sequel: Christmas hilarity in summer BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Is it a sense of pride when your hometown is the setting for a comedic stage production that takes place in a trailer park? If youre from Starke, thats the case with the Hippodrome Theatres The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, which runs from May 30 through June 22. Its the sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical. As is the case with the original, the setting is Starke at the fictional Armadillo Acres mobile-home community. Director Lauren Caldwell said there was a cautious curiosity when it came to observing how Starke residents would react to the original musical, but in the end, they seemed to enjoy it. The Great American Trailer Park Musical proved to be the best-attended show in the history of the Hippodrome during its two runs. The majority of the audiences were people from Starke, Caldwell said. Still, Caldwell said there is no reason for anyone who didnt see the original show to be wary of how Starke and its people are portrayed in the sequel. The good thing about it is these people arent being made fun of in anyway, Caldwell said. Actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed, saying the musical is genuine and heartfelt, with actor Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, adding, Its about people and family. Actor Grace Choi, who portrays Darlene, said the characters have their quirks, which are accentuated for comedic purposes, but added, It has nothing to do with it being in Starke. I feel that was just the location it happened to be. David Nehls and Betsy Kelso wrote both trailer-park musicals. It was Nehls who decided upon using Starke as the location for Armadillo Acres. Aside from the stage backdrop, which includes a few familiar Starke sights, such as the bull outside of Grannies Restaurant, neither musical contains anything that is Starke specific. Either musical would still work if a different town was chosen as the site of Armadillo KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR ON THE 1 st Legals

63 yards on 16 carries. Harvin completed 7-of-10 passes for 68 yards. Keystone head coach Chuck Dickinson said at times during the game, four freshmen were playing on his offense. He added that he anticipates those same playerswho will be sophomores next yearcarrying much of the workload for the offense. Theyve got to grow up in a hurry, he said of the ninthgraders. Tonight was a good test for them. Dickinson added that as in prior years, summer conditioning will likely determine the destiny of the team. He said his tight endsall ninth-graders particularly need to bulk up during the summer. On defense, Dickinson said his players got to the ball well, but missed too many tackles. He also said fatigue may have played a role in the second half. He attributed that to the fact that he does not focus on conditioning in the spring as much as he does in the fall.

Beck will race in a varsity four-crew boat with coxswain. JUs womens rowing program capped a successful spring schedule with its first-ever Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships. Just a few weeks previously, head coach Jim Mitchells team maneuvered the waters of Sarasota and was crowned the Florida Intercollegiate Rowing Association champions. With four top finishes and just one runner-up, the Dolphins held a 29-point advantage over Nova Southeastern, the number-one ranked Division II national champions. Beck, who is studying aviation management, with a track in air traffic control and airport management, just completed her junior year. She had the honor of making JUs Davis College of Business deans list the last two semesters. KHHS grad Beck to BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Keystone Heights drove to the Pedro Menendez 1-yard line, but could not convert at the end of the first half in a 21-0 loss to the Falcons in a spring football classic on May 23. Menendez first scored midway through the second quarter on a 29-yard pass from Sebastian Valone to Jayson Sowden. The play completed a 12-play, 50yard drive. The Falcons scored next on a 5-yard run by quarterback Adam Taylor with 3:22 left in the third quarter. Seth Bradshaw completed the nights scoring with a 5-yard run midway through the final quarter. Aaron Melfi kicked extra points following all three touchdowns under modified rules for spring games that eliminated punt and kickoff returns, and prohibited defensive rushes during kicking plays. Keystones best opportunity for a score came at the end of the first half after the Indians drove 70 yards to the Menendez 10. The drive featured runs of 4, 10, 6, 4, 5, 4 and 4 yards by Anton Noble and pass completions of 12, 10, 9, 10 and 5 yards by quarterback Wyatt Harvin. Four of the completions went to Brighton Gibbs and one to Tyler Rickets. On fourth-and-1 from the Menendez 10, Harvin completed his sixth pass of the drive to Noble, but the Indian running back failed to reach the goal line as time ran out. However, a roughing-the-passer penalty gave Keystone one more chance from the Menendez 1 with no time left on the clock. On the final play of the half, the Falcon defense stopped Noble short of the goal line after he took a handoff from Harvin. Noble finished the night with BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Quarterback Caleb Cox and running back Taz Worrell combined for five touchdowns in the Union County High School football teams 42-7 win over visiting Duval Charter in a spring classic on May 23. Duval Charter was able to move the ball at times on the Union defense, driving past the Tigers 25-yard line five times. However, only one of those drives resulted in a score, with Union forcing a fumble on one and a turnover on downs twice. On the fifth trip inside the Union 25, the Panthers actually made it inside the 10-yard line before time expired. The Panthers had the games opening possession, which began with Unions Joseph Merriex making a tackle for a minimal gain. However, Duval picked up a couple of first downs, including one on a run by quarterback Chris Brown that converted a third-and-19 play. Duval picked up another first down on a personal foul penalty, which gave the Panthers possession at the Union 19. They fumbled the ball, however, with the Tigers Dairon Alexander recovering. Isaiah Johnson and Darion Robinson had big runs to get the Tigers moving on offense, with one of Robinsons runs resulting in a first-and-goal at the 8. Robinson added a 7-yard run after that to set up a 1-yard scoring run by Cox. Khris Wimpy caught a pass from Cox on the two-point conversion to put the Tigers up 8-0. Zach Lee gave the home crowd something to shout about BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High Schools defense was victimized by big plays, while its offense struggled to put itself in scoring position in 21-8 and 14-0 losses to Dunnellon and Newberry, respectively, in a spring jamboree in Newberry on May 23. Each team played each other for two quarters. The Tornadoes had five touchdowns scored against them, with all but one covering at least 31 yards. Offensively, Bradford drove inside the opposing 25-yard line only three times and squandered a scoring opportunity at the 4-yard line in its loss to Newberry. In the jamborees first two quarters, Dunnellons Kane Parks caught three passes for 129 yardsall of them touchdowns in leading the Tigers to the 21-8 win over Bradford. Dunnellon built a 21-0 lead before Bradford scored with 2:26 to play. Parks, who also rushed for 30 yards on three carries, got the Tigers moving early when he ripped off a 16-yard run on the first play from scrimmage. Three plays later, Parks took a short pass from Dante White and turned it into a 45-yard touchdown. The PAT put Dunnellon up 7-0 just 1:08 into the game. Bradfords defense fared better the next time it was on the field, with Jarvis Desue and Dequan Blackshear breaking up pass plays that forced the Tigers to punt. Bradford drove past midfield when quarterback Jacob Luke scrambled for a 10-yard gain to the Dunnellon 45, but the Tigers dropped Desue for a 4-yard loss before sacking Luke for a 3-yard loss. Trevor Shannahan and Dawson Watson combined to make a tackle for a 2-yard loss at the start of Dunnellons next offensive series, but Tigers quarterback White, who finished 4-of-5 for 140 yards, hit Parks in stride along the sideline for a 75-yard touchdown and a 14-0 Dunnellon lead with 3:16 remaining in the first quarter. The Tornadoes would drive past midfield again on Chris Barrons 11-yard reception, but Bradfords offense couldnt over come two sacks of Luke for a total of 16 yards. Dunnellon running back Joshua Williams spun out of one tackle and ran through a couple of defenders in the open field en route to a 57-yard gain to the Tigers build 30-0 lead, defeat Duval Charter 42-7 Tornadoes fall to Dunnellon, Brighton Gibbs defenders after yard pass from in the second Tonya Gibbs.

Birth: Socials Letters editor@bctelegraph.com Dear Editor: With all due respect to Malcolm Hills letter, May 22. 2014, Support NRA, Second Amendment., I nevertheless found it an odd and confusing presentation of the First, Second and Fourth amendments to our constitution. No, Mr. Hill, the First amendment does not give us the right to say anything and everything we want without somebody in authority telling us we cant. Aside from libel and Previous letter confusing take on amendments Dear Editor: I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation to each and every one who attended the Memorial Day service at Veterans Park and Camp Blanding on Monday. Your attendance and kind attention to our Memorial Service proves your respect for our men and women in service. To you who made contributions to the VFW Poppy fund, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for when you display the poppy, it shows your respect for all of our fallen who paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. And to the young lady who drew a picture of our American flag and presented it to me, thanking me for my service, thank you. I will cherish it as I do other honors bestowed upon me. Respectfully, Thanks for Memorial Day slander laws, we are not allowed to indulge in hate speech without facing legal and/or economic consequences. Then, Mr. Hill informs us that the Fourth amendment says that we can gang up anywhere and anytime and gang up with Second Amendment and give the devil or anybody as much hell as we care to without fear of reprisal from the government. Huh?? The Fourth amendment deals solely with a persons right to be free of arrest, or seizure of property without a warrant based on probable cause. I suspect the writer confused the Fourth with the First amendment and its guaranties of free assembly for purposes of protest. Aside from that error, the ganging up language could hardly be called constitutional, implying as it does vigilante or mob justice. Considering these less than scholarly assertions, Mr. Hill then has the temerity to suggest that the reader is not thinking and have your head up the wrong place. Following these elegant observations, Mr. Hill, it seems apparent it gets to the meat of his letter i.e.: that the Second amendment, giving right of gun ownership (because as we know all gun owners are part of a wellregulated militia, including the disturbed individual who use their weapons to kill innocent people) is protecting us from Big Bad Government. That kind of mindset does not square very well with his praise of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution, the latter the very foundation of the government he rails against. Arnold Harris Lawtey Dear Editor: On Flag Day, June 14, we commemorate the adoption of the American flag. For more than 200 years, Old Glory has served as a symbol of our nations freedom and as a source of pride for our citizens. In patriotic parades and musical salutes, we support our local military units and recognize the significance of the stars and stripes.

Throughout the year, join your community and the American Legion Auxiliary to thank veterans who have served and protected our nation. Thank you to all who have served Old Glory. Happy Flag Day!

with a thin belly held in the accompanying photograph by Caleb Manning is obviously a post-spawn bass. The same bass caught a few weeks ago would have weighed considerably larger. From now through next spring, the bass weights will be smaller. This will be not only because the fish will not be full of the large roe, but also because they will be much more reclusive in deeper water with thicker cover. Through last weekend, our local weather fostered a little chill that some fishermen blamed for a less-than-great May full moon for shellcrackers. Apparently, bluegills made a heavier showing. On the last full moon, Jim Thornton of Lake City fished Sampson Lake for bedding breakup. The Tornadoes, though, missed a golden scoring opportunity when Luke hooked up with Barron for a 75-yard pass to the Newberry 4-yard line. Desue gained a yard on a first-down play from there before being dropped for a 5-yard loss on second down. Luke was sacked for a 4-yard loss before tossing an incompletion to Jeffers in the end zone on a fourth-down play. Bradford put itself in good field position again on a 23-yard reception by Cody Tillman to the Newberry 25. Desue gained another 2 yards before Luke was sacked twice, forcing the Tornadoes into a fourth-and-20 play, which was unsuccessful. Dejwon Howard moved the Panthers past midfield on the ensuing series with a 12-yard run to the Bradford 40. Franklin broke free on a scoring run from there, with Files PAT putting Newberry up 7-0 with 6:49 to play. Bradford went three-andout on its next opportunity. The Panthers the put together a four-play scoring drive that was capped by Franklins 31-yard touchdown run. Jeffers stepped in at quarterback on the Tornadoes last series and picked up a first down with a 10-yard scramble. Bradford would lose 6 yards on a fumble, however, and eventually punt on fourth-and-16. Luke completed 4-of-8 passes for 107 yards, but the Tornadoes finished with 104 total yards. They were held to minus-3 yards rushing when factoring in three sacks for a loss of 26 yards. Barron finished with the one reception for 75 yards. Bradford 8. That set up Kobie Jones 5-yard touchdown pass to Parks. Bradfords offense did generate some big plays on the following series, with Desue and Don Jeffers catching passes for gains of 17 and 9 yards, respectively. A 5-yard reception by Barron gave Bradford a thirdand-2 at the Dunnellon 26, but Luke was sacked for a loss of 12 yards. On fourth down, Luke was almost sacked again, but was able to dump the ball off to Desue for a 15-yard gain to the 23 and a first down. Desue followed the fourthdown play with an 11-yard run before Luke scrambled for a 10-yard gain. That set up Lukes 1-yard touchdown plunge with 2:26 to play. Bradford added two points on a pass from Luke to Jeffers to cap the scoring at 21-8. Luke finished with 8-of-11 completions for 79 yards, with Barron catching four passes for 35 yards and Desue catching two for 32 yards. Desue had 53 all-purpose yards. Host Newberry played Dunnellon in the next two quarters of play, with Alex Files kicking a 49-yard field goal on the last play for a 9-6 win. The Panthers then played Bradford, with Jason Franklin rushing for two touchdowns that totaled 71 yards to lead Newberry to a 14-0 win. It was a much better start for the Bradford defense, which held Newberry to 34 yards on its first three series. Winslow Roddey had a tackle for a loss of 5 yards, while Shannahan had a 4-yard sack.

The Union offense fared better the next time it had the ball, running three plays and scoring on a touchdown toss from Cox to Cody Miller to cap a 40-yard drive. Robinsons run on the twopoint conversion made it a 16-0 game. Duvals offense ran two plays before fumbling the ball back to the Tigers. Union responded with a four-play, 18-yard scoring drive. An Alexander run put the Tigers inside the 10, with Robinson eventually scoring on a pass from Cox. Isaiah Johnsons run on the conversion put the Tigers up 24-0 with 9:10 to play in the first half. Clay Hall provided a big spark for the Union defense when he came up with a sack for an 11yard loss on the Panthers first play from scrimmage on the ensuing series. Another sack would later force the Panthers to punt. Johnson tacked another score on the board with a touchdown run that made it 30-0 in favor of the Tigers. Duval moved downfield and threatened to score before halftime. Pass interference penalties helped the Panthers pick up two first downs, while Brown threw a pair of passes that resulted in first downs as well. With Duval inside the Tigers 25-yard line, Lee broke up a pass, while Merriex and Andy Holderfield combined to tackle a runner for a 3-yard gain. Two consecutive penalties backed the Panthers up 10 yards. Brown threw an incompletion on thirdand-17 before he was sacked on fourth down by Joshua Hedman. The second half got off to a pictured during practice, had an interception win over Duval Continued from 3B good start for the visitors when Dennis Jackson intercepted a Union pass. The Tigers Jacquez Warren made a tackle for a 3-yard loss on the first play following the change of possession, but the arm of Brown resulted in two first downs before he tossed a touchdown to Aaron Tellado to make it a 30-7 game following the PAT. After the Union offense went three-and-out, the Panthers were on the march again, driving inside the Union 10. After a Duval penalty, Unions Alexander would break up a pass and make a tackle on Brown for a 3-yard gain to force Duval into a fourth-and-12 play. Browns incomplete pass resulted in a turnover on downs. Union was deep in its own territory, but not for long when Worrell promptly broke free for a run of more than 20 yards on first down. It was just one of three long-distance runs for Worrell, with the third resulting in a touchdown and a 36-7 on the first play of the fourth quarter. The Tigers capped the scoring with a 64-yard drive on their next possession. Again, it was Worrell providing several 20-plus-yard runs en route to his second touchdown of the night. Continued from 3B touchdown against Dunnellon. Fins, Fur & Tails The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is currently considering changes to the regulations that apply to the harvesting of largemouth bass. Presently, the bag limit for largemouth bass caught south and east of the Suwannee River is five fish over 14 inches. In an effort to increase the population of larger bass, the commission is proposing a change that would continue to allow five keeper bass, but only one would be allowed to be over 16 inches. One obvious conflict is that the regulation would run counter to the objective of all bass tournaments, which is to weigh as many large fish as possible. The solution will be FWC considers change in bass harvests to obtain an exemption for each tournament. This is not currently required if the tournament uses the same size limits specified by commission. When questioned, a FWC representative in Lake City indicated that every tournament, including the small, open tournaments, would require exemptions. The representative was, however, reassuring in that multiple exemptions could be obtained in one online setting. Joey Tyson, who organizes the Bald Eagle tournaments, suggested the process would not be a significant obstruction. Tyson indicated that the most significant adjustment to the changes would be the feeling by non-tournament fishermen that they are limited on the harvest amount. Outdoors outlook The 7-plus-pound bass the big bass of the Tournament.

Today, I remember him and all the others whose names are on that wall and on black, granite walls around our country, Crawford said. Prior to his speaking engagement at the Camp Blanding ceremony, Crawford was interviewed by a Jacksonville TV station and asked why a Memorial Day ceremony should be held at Camp Blanding. Crawford said the short TV interview didnt give him a chance to fully answer that question, but he shared with the Memorial Day ceremony crowd just why Camp Blanding is so special. Camp Blanding has been a large part of his life, Crawford said. It was a place where the Lake Butler native enjoyed picnics and boating while growing up, but it also served as the place where Crawford went through basic training when he enlisted in the Florida Army National Guard on Dec. 13, 1956. During World War II, this place was also a very special place for many soldiers, Crawford said. It was one of the largest training bases in America and in the South. Camp Blanding was the training site for nine Army divisions and 16 special-weapons units. After they deployed, it turned into an infantry replacement training center. I read in the history it was a big training center. They had 44 battalionsI cant quite comprehend thatat Camp Blanding.

Jim Lewis, Warren Carver, Robert Carver, Jamie Carver, Jeff Carver, Jim Ward, Gene Tannner and Lance Williams made their annual trip to Dead Lake, south of Palatka, in May. Warren Carver indicated they were less successful this year, but he was careful not to complain by saying they did OK. Townsend Strickland specified that the May bluegill spawn on Kingsley Lake was scattered, but heavy. He also indicated he saw few shellcrackers. Some of these local bream fishermen seem to think that the shellcracker spawn will be heavier in June and that the bluegills will cluster bed on the May 28 new moon and again on the following full moon. Some unclustered bluegill beds should be available most of the remaining summer. Saltwater action seems to be settling into its summer trends. East coast surf reports include catches of whiting and blues. Cobia and kings are also reported to be around shore reefs.

Mills, 35, and stepdaughter Marissa Shanta Griffin, 19, during a domestic dispute in Lake Butler. It occurred around 1:30 a.m. at 810 Southeast Seventh Avenue. Both women were transported to UF Health at Shands in Gainesville and were reported in stable condition. On Tuesday, Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead reported that both were back at home. The suspect dragged his wife into a bedroom and shot her four timestwice in the chest, once in the stomach and once in the thigh. Her daughter busted down the door to rescue her, at which time the suspect shot his stepdaughter in the thigh. He also attempted to shoot her in the head numerous times but the gun failed to fire. He then fled on foot to 1038 Southwest First Terrace where he broke a window to gain entry into a shed there. With the help of neighbors, the Union County Sheriffs Office, along with the Union Correctional Institution K-9 unit and other agencies, tracked him down by mid-morning. UCSO originally thought that Mills might flee to Jacksonville since he is from that area. He is currently being held in the Union County Jail and charged with two counts of attempted murder along with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, kidnappingfalse imprisonment and burglary of a structure. His .38-caliber handgun was recovered near a shed at the home of the victims. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was called in to process the scene. Thanks to all of our citizens for assisting us in this capture, UCSO posted on its Facebook page. Whitehead also thanked the Department of Corrections for their help. The suspect has a history of arrests. On Oct. 12 of last year, Lavar Mills was arrested Oct. 12 by UCSO deputies for driving while license suspended or revokedhabitual offender. He was previously arrested on Aug. 24 by deputies for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, possession of drugs and intent to deliver/distribute drugs. Fortunately, his stepdaughter Marissa Griffin will be able to walk with fellow classmates on Friday to graduate from Union County High School. She plans to go to college to become a nurse or lawyer. And, amazingly, her mom Lakesha Mills will be there to see it. It will make a memorable week that much more special.

Main Street Lake Butler, FL 32054 Subscription Rate in Trade Area $39.00 per year: $20.00 six months Outside Trade Area: $39.00 per year: $20.00 six months I would like to introduce myself. I am Brad Whitehead, Sheriff of Union County. The office of Sheriff is and remains the only elected office that is the voice of and for the people that separates the fine line of order from tyranny. I am officially announcing my candidacy for Sheriff of Union County. This is the place I was raised and have called home my entire life. We all have an important decision to make in November for the person who will lead this county. I want to share a little about myself both personally and professionally to demonstrate why I will be the right person for the right reasons to lead our county. Tradition, pride, and faith run deep in my family. I remember growing up in our community and having a great desire to follow in the footsteps of my grandfather and my father. As a youngster, you choose a person of admiration, someone that you can look up to and pattern your life after. My grandfather and my father along with my mother set a steady course for my brother and me. We were taught to work hard and always be compassionate. We knew the value of friendship and we knew the value of family. A man is only as good as his word, is a statement that was instilled in me at an early age and is the foundation on which I stand today. I attended Union County Schools where I believe even today sets a standard that other Florida schools envy. It produces pride because of the great teachers that nourish our children with knowledge and keeps them thirsty for more. I know much of the pride I feel exists due to my mother being a longtime educator here in Union County. She found the time to raise her children and give of herself to the students in our county. The pride also spilled over from my father. I was extremely proud of being the son of the Sheriff. He always took the time to be part of every school activity with my brother and me. He also made sure that other kids no matter what walk of life they came from had the opportunity to participate in the excitement of school activities. I deeply wanted to work hard to be a contributor to our county as part of the family tradition. After graduation from high school I set out on the course to prepare myself for the very position that I hold today. I began work with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a crime analyst to help pay my way through college. I graduated from Florida State University with a BS in Criminology in 1998. After graduation I went to work with the Florida Department of Treasury and Insurance under the Bureau of Fire and Arson. As a criminal detective with the state, I worked many crimes ranging from serial arson, murders, bombings, and complex frauds in many of our judicial circuits. I was also assigned to various task forces with other local, state, and federal authorities in the Jacksonville and Ocala areas. In 2003, I was blessed to get the opportunity to return home to serve with our professionals in the Department of Corrections. Learning from some of the finest officers and administrators, I was able to work as a prison inspector and as an assistant warden of both the Union Correctional Institution and the Florida State Prison. My admiration remains with all of those who are on the front lines of protection every day from some of the worst criminals in our state. An important part of leading a governmental agency is the ability to formulate and manage the taxpayers money. This too, sets me apart, not only in my criminal investigative experience but my fiscal ability. My time as Assistant Warden with the Department of Corrections afforded me the opportunity to prepare and manage budgets on a day to day basis. Experience does matter! I believe that the security of a family unit remains my greatest achievement. My wife, Jennifer, and our two children still amaze me every day. I realize what an awesome responsibility I have in leading my children and instilling the values in them that were pressed upon my heart as a child. As a son, husband, and father I have learned that alone I can do nothing. It is only through God and His guidance that I am able to accomplish anything. We often think that our heroes are invincible, maybe infallible, and will always be there. Although I have spent my entire career preparing for the day I would seek the Office of Sheriff, I did not know it would be thrust upon me so quickly. In December of this past year, me and everyone in my family suffered major heartbreak. We lost a person that earned the respect of so many in this county and state. Many of you called him friend; I called him dad. This past January, the Governor of this state under our constitution had to appoint a Sheriff to serve the remaining term of my father. This was not a popularity contest. It was an appointment that was made by the Governor based on the recommendations of many diverse professionals and leaders in this state and the public and private sector to represent the will of the people. I remain so very humbled to have been selected based upon the qualification review. In announcing my candidacy to you, I can only encourage you to be part of the process. Please join me in my continued efforts to create positive change by working together to protect our children and young adults from the harsh reality of drugs. Lets push to rid ourselves of this plague! I will work tirelessly to hear and address your concerns. I will always keep an open door policy so voices may be heard and people helped. The Sheriff, in its most humble beginnings, is a conservator of peace. I accept this responsibility for our future. Ethical, moral, and professional character must be the guiding principle for any office, especially the Sheriff. The people of Union County deserve and should expect a leader with the capabilities and a vision. Please feel free to come by the Sheriffs Office and share your visions as well. Thank you to so many who have supported me thus far. I look forward to continuing to serve you in November. God bless you. Brad Whitehead Brad Whitehead announces run for Sheriff PD. POL. ADV.

12A Union County Times Thursday, May 29, 2014 FREE book by doctor reveals what the drug companies don't want you to know! Your sex life and erection can now survive DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 800-777-1922 BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The New River Regional Landfill appears to be getting closer to a workable gas-toenergy project. The goal is to turn the methane-rich gas produced by decomposing waste into a profitmaking renewable energy project. Alan Beer of Florida Energy Partners walked the board through plans for the project, including how a power plant would be constructed on site to feed electricity to the grid through Clay Electrics lines. The party interested in purchasing the power is Duke Energy. Although there was no power purchase agreement yet, there was a letter of intent to enter into negotiations. That is closer than the landfill has been to selling its gas, which is currently burnt off to comply with air quality standards. Were just burning money out there right now, said Commissioner Doyle Thomas. According to Beer, Duke is interested in increasing its use of renewable energy and is even willing to pay line capacity charges, which gives this project a huge advantage. Any contract would be a minimum of 15 years, although the project would is expected to last beyond 20 years. Two engines would produce four megawatts of power, but the addition of a third generator later on could boost that amount. Beer said the power purchase agreement would include an early termination clause for the landfill, but not for Duke, so the board could pursue a better offer if one comes along, but Duke could not walk away and leave the board without a customer. As long as the plant is producing at least 86 percent of the time, the association would receive full payment. Beer said another factor making Duke an attractive partner is the higher cost of its power when compared to other utilities, and that cost is only expected to rise. FEPs proposal differs from a previous proposal the association was considering because this time the association is investing in constructing the power plant. In order to do so, Executive Director Darrell ONeal said the board could borrow from itself, taking all of the funding set aside for long-term care and using it for the construction of the gasto-energy project. According to information given to the board, $5.8 million is currently set aside for longterm planning. Profits from the gas-to-energy project are anticipated to increase annually from around $406,000 in the first year to nearly $1.6 million for the year 2029. The association would pay itself back with interest from the proceeds, setting aside the money for its long-term planning goals, and enjoy a profit to boot. At the end of this 15 years, well be 100 percent funded without having to add another dime in the account, ONeal said. If figures prove true, the profit will be close to $7.1 million total (minus depreciation) at the end of 15 years, plus more than $9 million for planning. Beer said if the board could still explore what other customers might be out there, but Dukes interest is proof this is a viable project. Theres no reason not to move forward, he said. The board authorized staff to enter into negotiations with FEP for the design-build contract. FEP will work with Duke on the power purchase agreement.Landfill closer than ever to producing power Harrison honored by governorMark Harrison and eight other district teachers of the year were presented the the current Union County School District Teacher of the Year.

said. I returned to my little boy and little girl safe and sound. During a later stint at the Pentagon, Crawford had the chance to visit the Vietnam Memorial. He located Liddells name on the wall. I ran my thumb across it, Crawford said. My heart rushed with memories from the past. Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, May 29, 2014News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake RegionFEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Retired Army Col. Jim Crawford will never forget Robert Liddell, a man who put duty to his country ahead of early retirement. Liddell never made it to retirement, making the ultimate sacrifice when he was killed in combat during the Vietnam War. Today, I honor and remember 1st Sgt. Robert Liddell, Crawford said. I remember what an honor it was to serve with himsuch a great soldier. Crawford was the keynote speaker at the Camp Blanding Joint Training Centers Memorial Day ceremony. He referenced the book of Ecclesiastes in describing the mixture of emotions that come with remembering those who gave their lives in service to this countrythere is a time to weep for them, but also a time to remember sharing a laugh with them; a time when those who would become true heroes could be embraced, and a time when they are not around to embrace. There was a time to love them, and that time will be forever, Crawford said. There was a time for war, and they gave us a time for peace. These times, like today, we honor them by posting flags of the United States on their hallowed graves for the supreme sacrifice made for you and me. Most likely, each of you, though, has someone special in mind who you would like to honor. For Crawford, that special person is Liddell. Crawford was assigned to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where he commanded a signal company of 172 men preparing to go to Vietnam. I began to receive young soldiers from basic training with little or no experience at all, Crawford said. An old sergeant once told Crawford, Son, there are no heroes in combat. You only react based upon how well you are trained. Crawford said that became his motto. With that in mind, he said he was in great need of a good first sergeant to step in for one who was going to retire. Crawford turned to a friend of his who had experience in VietnamLiddell. The position would be a promotion for Liddell, but he already had 17 years of service under his belt and was preparing to retire. Liddell had a family that included two young daughters. I would not have felt bad if he had turned me down, Crawford said. Liddell, though, accepted the position and helped Crawford train the men of the signal company. Crawford said Liddell was a great right-hand man to me. They deployed to Vietnam in June 1969. Liddell was killed a couple of months later. He returned to his grieving wife and daughters, Crawford Giving a salute during the playing of Taps after placing a wreath in honor of fallen military men and women are (foreground, l-r) Col.

In a June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story, Futch said he wished a fictitious name had been chosen for the city in question, but he added that sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself. It was still enjoyable and entertaining, Futch was quoted as saying in the June 8, 2006, Telegraph-Times-Monitor story. Im glad we saw it. Acres. In fact, Caldwell said the town should probably be changed depending upon where the production is playing. For example, her hometown of Waco, Texas, wouldve been the smalltown setting when the musical was performed in Dallas. Its not where the story takes place thats important. Its the story itself. In regard to The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, that story centers around Darlene, the Scrooge-like character who undergoes a transformation, thanks to a visit from the spirit of her deceased fianc. Its really about watching Darlene, Caldwell said. Shes angry. She lost the love of her life. He had to come back and give her permission to move on without him. Thats as universal as you can get. I dont care if being inhabited by an ancient spirit. James said, In rehearsals, when we all got to the ending, we were like, What? The tree is possessed? Choi said the key for the actors is to portray their characters as genuinely believing every absurd thing thats happening around them. Fellow actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed. You have to commit to it because the more sincere you are with all of it, the funnier it makes it, Haldeman said. Mark Chambers, who starred in the original The Great American Trailer Park Musical as Norbert, returns to play Jackie, a proprietor of a business that brings pancakes and sex appeal together. Despite that, he said he believes the sequel is less risqu, referring to the fact that the original musical featured a stripper as one of its main characters. Still, a comedy that features a song entitled, (Expletive) It, Its Christmas, is probably not for everybody. Hippodrome Managing Director Jessica Hurov referenced a June 7, 2006, Gainesville Sun story about the original musical in which someone was quoted as saying, If you have a sense of humor, you should definitely go. If you dont, if youre stuck-up or offended easily, you shouldnt. Hurov said The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical will reward those with a sense of humor. Its raucous, but heartfelt. You have to come, have a drink, sit back and let it wash over you, Hurov said. So, why should you go spend Christmas with the residents of Armadillo Acres? Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, said, We do, I believe, have the biggest Christmas spirit of any neighborhood. Marissa Toogood, who portrays Pickles, quickly added, And maybe the biggest hair. Show times for the discount previews are 7 p.m. on May 28 and 8 p.m. on May 29.

Caldwell said it takes a look at how a person can overcome a tragic event and move on with life. The show is about ones life journey. You get two choices when you grow older: You either turn out sometimes kind of cynical and bitter and negative, or you kind of become wiser and more accepting and more open, Caldwell said. I think we get to watch that happen with (Darlene). Sounds like serious stuff and there are touching moments in the productionbut youre probably not going to end up crying, unless its from laughing too hard. The writing is so crazy, and there are so many ridiculous things that are happening, said Grace Choi, who portrays Darlene. Alec James, who plays the character Rufus, said in a script full of crazy ideas, its hard to say that one is any crazier than the other, though there is that matter of the Christmas tree 2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, M ay 29, 2014 Florida Twin TheatreAll Seats $6.00 Before 6 p.m. 964-5451* CLOSED MON & TUES SCREEN 1 SCREEN 2 STARTS FRIDAY Visit us on-line at www.FloridaTwinTheatre.comFri: 8:00 Sat: 5:05, 8:00 Sun: 5:30 Wed.

BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer If Charles Dickens awoke from a kegnog bender and decided to start writing, perhaps his classic A Christmas Carol wouldve turned out like the Hippodrome Theatres latest production, The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. The sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical opens Friday, May 30, with discount previews scheduled for Wednesday, May 28, and Thursday, May 29. Characters Betty, Lin (thats short for Linoleum) and Pickles return for what the Gainesville theater describes as a cat-fightin, sunworshippin, chair-throwin, good-ole festive Hipp summer musical good time. Director Lauren Caldwell said when it was learned there was a sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical, which was the best-attended show in Hippodrome history during both of its runs, there was no hesitation in wanting to present it for a summer run. But Christmas in summer? Yes, the show may have allusions to A Christmas Carol with the transformation of character Darlene, brought about with the help of spirits and a dose of electricitybut there is more to the show than Trailer Park Musical sequel: Christmas hilarity in summer BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Is it a sense of pride when your hometown is the setting for a comedic stage production that takes place in a trailer park? If youre from Starke, thats the case with the Hippodrome Theatres The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, which runs from May 30 through June 22. Its the sequel to The Great American Trailer Park Musical. As is the case with the original, the setting is Starke at the fictional Armadillo Acres mobile-home community. Director Lauren Caldwell said there was a cautious curiosity when it came to observing how Starke residents would react to the original musical, but in the end, they seemed to enjoy it. The Great American Trailer Park Musical proved to be the best-attended show in the history of the Hippodrome during its two runs. The majority of the audiences were people from Starke, Caldwell said. Still, Caldwell said there is no reason for anyone who didnt see the original show to be wary of how Starke and its people are portrayed in the sequel. The good thing about it is these people arent being made fun of in anyway, Caldwell said. Actor Susan Haldeman, who portrays Betty, agreed, saying the musical is genuine and heartfelt, with actor Stephanie Lynge, who portrays Lin, adding, Its about people and family. Actor Grace Choi, who portrays Darlene, said the characters have their quirks, which are accentuated for comedic purposes, but added, It has nothing to do with it being in Starke. I feel that was just the location it happened to be. David Nehls and Betsy Kelso wrote both trailer-park musicals. It was Nehls who decided upon using Starke as the location for Armadillo Acres. Aside from the stage backdrop, which includes a few familiar Starke sights, such as the bull outside of Grannies Restaurant, neither musical contains anything that is Starke specific. Either musical would still work if a different town was chosen as the site of Armadillo KEYSTONE AIRPARK AUTHOR ON THE 1st Legals

He added that he anticipates those same playerswho will be sophomores next yearcarrying much of the workload for the offense. Theyve got to grow up in a hurry, he said of the ninthgraders. Tonight was a good test for them. Dickinson added that as in prior years, summer conditioning will likely determine the destiny of the team. He said his tight endsall ninth-graders particularly need to bulk up during the summer. On defense, Dickinson said his players got to the ball well, but missed too many tackles. He also said fatigue may have played a role in the second half. He attributed that to the fact that he does not focus on conditioning in the spring as much as he does in the fall.

Beck will race in a varsity four-crew boat with coxswain. JUs womens rowing program capped a successful spring schedule with its first-ever Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships. Just a few weeks previously, head coach Jim Mitchells team maneuvered the waters of Sarasota and was crowned the Florida Intercollegiate Rowing Association champions. With four top finishes and just one runner-up, the Dolphins held a 29-point advantage over Nova Southeastern, the number-one ranked Division II national champions. Beck, who is studying aviation management, with a track in air traffic control and airport management, just completed her junior year. She had the honor of making JUs Davis College of Business deans list the last two semesters. KHHS grad Beck to BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Keystone Heights drove to the Pedro Menendez 1-yard line, but could not convert at the end of the first half in a 21-0 loss to the Falcons in a spring football classic on May 23. Menendez first scored midway through the second quarter on a 29-yard pass from Sebastian Valone to Jayson Sowden. The play completed a 12-play, 50yard drive. The Falcons scored next on a 5-yard run by quarterback Adam Taylor with 3:22 left in the third quarter. Seth Bradshaw completed the nights scoring with a 5-yard run midway through the final quarter. Aaron Melfi kicked extra points following all three touchdowns under modified rules for spring games that eliminated punt and kickoff returns, and prohibited defensive rushes during kicking plays. Keystones best opportunity for a score came at the end of the first half after the Indians drove 70 yards to the Menendez 10. The drive featured runs of 4, 10, 6, 4, 5, 4 and 4 yards by Anton Noble and pass completions of 12, 10, 9, 10 and 5 yards by quarterback Wyatt Harvin. Four of the completions went to Brighton Gibbs and one to Tyler Rickets. On fourth-and-1 from the Menendez 10, Harvin completed his sixth pass of the drive to Noble, but the Indian running back failed to reach the goal line as time ran out. However, a roughing-the-passer penalty gave Keystone one more chance from the Menendez 1 with no time left on the clock. On the final play of the half, the Falcon defense stopped Noble short of the goal line after he took a handoff from Harvin. Noble finished the night with BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Quarterback Caleb Cox and running back Taz Worrell combined for five touchdowns in the Union County High School football teams 42-7 win over visiting Duval Charter in a spring classic on May 23. Duval Charter was able to move the ball at times on the Union defense, driving past the Tigers 25-yard line five times. However, only one of those drives resulted in a score, with Union forcing a fumble on one and a turnover on downs twice. On the fifth trip inside the Union 25, the Panthers actually made it inside the 10-yard line before time expired. The Panthers had the games opening possession, which began with Unions Joseph Merriex making a tackle for a minimal gain. However, Duval picked up a couple of first downs, including one on a run by quarterback Chris Brown that converted a third-and-19 play. Duval picked up another first down on a personal foul penalty, which gave the Panthers possession at the Union 19. They fumbled the ball, however, with the Tigers Dairon Alexander recovering. Isaiah Johnson and Darion Robinson had big runs to get the Tigers moving on offense, with one of Robinsons runs resulting in a first-and-goal at the 8. Robinson added a 7-yard run after that to set up a 1-yard scoring run by Cox. Khris Wimpy caught a pass from Cox on the two-point conversion to put the Tigers up 8-0. Zach Lee gave the home crowd something to shout about BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford High Schools defense was victimized by big plays, while its offense struggled to put itself in scoring position in 21-8 and 14-0 losses to Dunnellon and Newberry, respectively, in a spring jamboree in Newberry on May 23. Each team played each other for two quarters. The Tornadoes had five touchdowns scored against them, with all but one covering at least 31 yards. Offensively, Bradford drove inside the opposing 25-yard line only three times and squandered a scoring opportunity at the 4-yard line in its loss to Newberry. In the jamborees first two quarters, Dunnellons Kane Parks caught three passes for 129 yardsall of them touchdowns in leading the Tigers to the 21-8 win over Bradford. Dunnellon built a 21-0 lead before Bradford scored with 2:26 to play. Parks, who also rushed for 30 yards on three carries, got the Tigers moving early when he ripped off a 16-yard run on the first play from scrimmage. Three plays later, Parks took a short pass from Dante White and turned it into a 45-yard touchdown. The PAT put Dunnellon up 7-0 just 1:08 into the game. Bradfords defense fared better the next time it was on the field, with Jarvis Desue and Dequan Blackshear breaking up pass plays that forced the Tigers to punt. Bradford drove past midfield when quarterback Jacob Luke scrambled for a 10-yard gain to the Dunnellon 45, but the Tigers dropped Desue for a 4-yard loss before sacking Luke for a 3-yard loss. Trevor Shannahan and Dawson Watson combined to make a tackle for a 2-yard loss at the start of Dunnellons next offensive series, but Tigers quarterback White, who finished 4-of-5 for 140 yards, hit Parks in stride along the sideline for a 75-yard touchdown and a 14-0 Dunnellon lead with 3:16 remaining in the first quarter. The Tornadoes would drive past midfield again on Chris Barrons 11-yard reception, but Bradfords offense couldnt over come two sacks of Luke for a total of 16 yards.

Your attendance and kind attention to our Memorial Service proves your respect for our men and women in service. To you who made contributions to the VFW Poppy fund, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for when you display the poppy, it shows your respect for all of our fallen who paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. And to the young lady who drew a picture of our American flag and presented it to me, thanking me for my service, thank you. I will cherish it as I do other honors bestowed upon me. Respectfully,Thanks for Memorial Dayslander laws, we are not allowed to indulge in hate speech without facing legal and/or economic consequences. Then, Mr. Hill informs us that the Fourth amendment says that we can gang up anywhere and anytime and gang up with Second Amendment and give the devil or anybody as much hell as we care to without fear of reprisal from the government.   Huh?? The Fourth amendment deals solely with a persons right to be free of arrest, or seizure of property without a warrant based on probable cause. I suspect the writer confused the Fourth with the First amendment and its guaranties of free assembly for purposes of protest. Aside from that error, the ganging up language could hardly be called constitutional, implying as it does vigilante or mob justice.   Considering these less than scholarly assertions, Mr. Hill then has the temerity to suggest that the reader is not thinking and have your head up the wrong place. Following these elegant observations, Mr. Hill, it seems apparent it gets to the meat of his letter i.e.: that the Second amendment, giving right of gun ownership (because as we know all gun owners are part of a wellregulated militia, including the disturbed individual who use their weapons to kill innocent people) is protecting us from Big Bad Government.   That kind of mindset does not square very well with his praise of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution, the latter the very foundation of the government he rails against.     Arnold Harris Lawtey Dear Editor: On Flag Day, June 14, we commemorate the adoption of the American flag. For more than 200 years, Old Glory has served as a symbol of our nations freedom and as a source of pride for our citizens.

with a thin belly held in the accompanying photograph by Caleb Manning is obviously a post-spawn bass. The same bass caught a few weeks ago would have weighed considerably larger. From now through next spring, the bass weights will be smaller.   This will be not only because the fish will not be full of the large roe, but also because they will be much more reclusive in deeper water with thicker cover. Through last weekend, our local weather fostered a little chill that some fishermen blamed for a less-than-great May full moon for shellcrackers. Apparently, bluegills made a heavier showing. On the last full moon, Jim Thornton of Lake City fished Sampson Lake for bedding breakup. The Tornadoes, though, missed a golden scoring opportunity when Luke hooked up with Barron for a 75-yard pass to the Newberry 4-yard line. Desue gained a yard on a first-down play from there before being dropped for a 5-yard loss on second down. Luke was sacked for a 4-yard loss before tossing an incompletion to Jeffers in the end zone on a fourth-down play. Bradford put itself in good field position again on a 23-yard reception by Cody Tillman to the Newberry 25. Desue gained another 2 yards before Luke was sacked twice, forcing the Tornadoes into a fourth-and-20 play, which was unsuccessful. Dejwon Howard moved the Panthers past midfield on the ensuing series with a 12-yard run to the Bradford 40. Franklin broke free on a scoring run from there, with Files PAT putting Newberry up 7-0 with 6:49 to play. Bradford went three-andout on its next opportunity. The Panthers the put together a four-play scoring drive that was capped by Franklins 31-yard touchdown run. Jeffers stepped in at quarterback on the Tornadoes last series and picked up a first down with a 10-yard scramble. Bradford would lose 6 yards on a fumble, however, and eventually punt on fourth-and-16. Luke completed 4-of-8 passes for 107 yards, but the Tornadoes finished with 104 total yards. They were held to minus-3 yards rushing when factoring in three sacks for a loss of 26 yards. Barron finished with the one reception for 75 yards. Bradford 8. That set up Kobie Jones 5-yard touchdown pass to Parks. Bradfords offense did generate some big plays on the following series, with Desue and Don Jeffers catching passes for gains of 17 and 9 yards, respectively. A 5-yard reception by Barron gave Bradford a thirdand-2 at the Dunnellon 26, but Luke was sacked for a loss of 12 yards. On fourth down, Luke was almost sacked again, but was able to dump the ball off to Desue for a 15-yard gain to the 23 and a first down. Desue followed the fourthdown play with an 11-yard run before Luke scrambled for a 10-yard gain. That set up Lukes 1-yard touchdown plunge with 2:26 to play. Bradford added two points on a pass from Luke to Jeffers to cap the scoring at 21-8. Luke finished with 8-of-11 completions for 79 yards, with Barron catching four passes for 35 yards and Desue catching two for 32 yards. Desue had 53 all-purpose yards. Host Newberry played Dunnellon in the next two quarters of play, with Alex Files kicking a 49-yard field goal on the last play for a 9-6 win. The Panthers then played Bradford, with Jason Franklin rushing for two touchdowns that totaled 71 yards to lead Newberry to a 14-0 win. It was a much better start for the Bradford defense, which held Newberry to 34 yards on its first three series. Winslow Roddey had a tackle for a loss of 5 yards, while Shannahan had a 4-yard sack.

The Union offense fared better the next time it had the ball, running three plays and scoring on a touchdown toss from Cox to Cody Miller to cap a 40-yard drive. Robinsons run on the twopoint conversion made it a 16-0 game. Duvals offense ran two plays before fumbling the ball back to the Tigers. Union responded with a four-play, 18-yard scoring drive. An Alexander run put the Tigers inside the 10, with Robinson eventually scoring on a pass from Cox. Isaiah Johnsons run on the conversion put the Tigers up 24-0 with 9:10 to play in the first half. Clay Hall provided a big spark for the Union defense when he came up with a sack for an 11yard loss on the Panthers first play from scrimmage on the ensuing series. Another sack would later force the Panthers to punt. Johnson tacked another score on the board with a touchdown run that made it 30-0 in favor of the Tigers. Duval moved downfield and threatened to score before halftime. Pass interference penalties helped the Panthers pick up two first downs, while Brown threw a pair of passes that resulted in first downs as well. With Duval inside the Tigers 25-yard line, Lee broke up a pass, while Merriex and Andy Holderfield combined to tackle a runner for a 3-yard gain. Two consecutive penalties backed the Panthers up 10 yards. Brown threw an incompletion on thirdand-17 before he was sacked on fourth down by Joshua Hedman. The second half got off to a pictured during practice, had an interception win over Duval Continued from 3B good start for the visitors when Dennis Jackson intercepted a Union pass. The Tigers Jacquez Warren made a tackle for a 3-yard loss on the first play following the change of possession, but the arm of Brown resulted in two first downs before he tossed a touchdown to Aaron Tellado to make it a 30-7 game following the PAT. After the Union offense went three-and-out, the Panthers were on the march again, driving inside the Union 10. After a Duval penalty, Unions Alexander would break up a pass and make a tackle on Brown for a 3-yard gain to force Duval into a fourth-and-12 play. Browns incomplete pass resulted in a turnover on downs. Union was deep in its own territory, but not for long when Worrell promptly broke free for a run of more than 20 yards on first down. It was just one of three long-distance runs for Worrell, with the third resulting in a touchdown and a 36-7 on the first play of the fourth quarter. The Tigers capped the scoring with a 64-yard drive on their next possession. Again, it was Worrell providing several 20-plus-yard runs en route to his second touchdown of the night.Continued from 3B touchdown against Dunnellon. Fins, Fur & Tails The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is currently considering changes to the regulations that apply to the harvesting of largemouth bass.   Presently, the bag limit for largemouth bass caught south and east of the Suwannee River is five fish over 14 inches.   In an effort to increase the population of larger bass, the commission is proposing a change that would continue to allow five keeper bass, but only one would be allowed to be over 16 inches. One obvious conflict is that the regulation would run counter to the objective of all bass tournaments, which is to weigh as many large fish as possible. The solution will be FWC considers change in bass harvests to obtain an exemption for each tournament.   This is not currently required if the tournament uses the same size limits specified by commission. When questioned, a FWC representative in Lake City indicated that every tournament, including the small, open tournaments, would require exemptions.   The representative was, however, reassuring in that multiple exemptions could be obtained in one online setting. Joey Tyson, who organizes the Bald Eagle tournaments, suggested the process would not be a significant obstruction.   T yson indicated that the most significant adjustment to the changes would be the feeling by non-tournament fishermen that they are limited on the harvest amount.Outdoors outlookThe 7-plus-pound bass the big bass of the Tournament.

Today, I remember him and all the others whose names are on that wall and on black, granite walls around our country, Crawford said. Prior to his speaking engagement at the Camp Blanding ceremony, Crawford was interviewed by a Jacksonville TV station and asked why a Memorial Day ceremony should be held at Camp Blanding. Crawford said the short TV interview didnt give him a chance to fully answer that question, but he shared with the Memorial Day ceremony crowd just why Camp Blanding is so special. Camp Blanding has been a large part of his life, Crawford said. It was a place where the Lake Butler native enjoyed picnics and boating while growing up, but it also served as the place where Crawford went through basic training when he enlisted in the Florida Army National Guard on Dec. 13, 1956. During World War II, this place was also a very special place for many soldiers, Crawford said. It was one of the largest training bases in America and in the South. Camp Blanding was the training site for nine Army divisions and 16 special-weapons units. After they deployed, it turned into an infantry replacement training center. I read in the history it was a big training center. They had 44 battalionsI cant quite comprehend thatat Camp Blanding.
