While on their trip, the officers and advisors participated in teambuilding activities, developed plans for the upcoming year and enjoyed an afternoon of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. The first day of the retreat began with a fishing trip, which not only allowed the officers to express their personality, but also gave them an opportunity to bond and just have fun together before the start of a busy school year. To start off the second day of the retreat, Union County High School agriculture teacher and FFA adviser Tom Bub Williams gave a motivational speech or, as the officers call it, a Bub-ism, which set the tone for rest of the weekends activities. Afterwards, the planning stage came, where the officers developed some new activities and events along with the strategic planning of some of the chapters favorite member events. The Lake Butler Sr. FFA Chapter has great ideas for the upcoming year, said Chapter Vice President Savannah Woodall. This weekend, we learned how to effectively work with each other in addition to planning the year ahead. I am excited to see our visions become realities. The officers also participated in some great leadership and teambuilding activities, which focused on communication, time management and building trust. As Chapter Secretary Ashley OSteen explained, Our FFA chapter can be described as a close-knit family. Because of this, our year will be filled with memories and growing opportunities through leadership and trust. I cannot wait to see what this year will produce. As you can see, the Lake Butler Sr. FFA Officer team is a disciplined, hardworking team that is ready for the upcoming school year and events they have planned for the chapter and community. As the trip ended, Chapter President Case Emerson said it best: I had a great time. We learned a lot about each other and our different leadership qualities. FFA Amie Imler, agricultural teacher and FFA adviser at Union County High School has been selected for a Teachers Turn the Key professional development scholarship from the National Association of Agricultural Educators. Teachers Turn the Key is a national scholarship program that allows early career agricultural educators to attend the annual NAAE convention and gives them an opportunity to become involved with their professional association.

Hall made the announcement to the FGC District Board of Trustees during its scheduled board meeting Tuesday, Aug. 12. My retirement marks the conclusion of a career of 45 years in the community college system, with 31 years as a college president, Hall wrote in his letter to the board. I am pleased to leave you with a strong budget, great leadership throughout the college, program and personnel recognitions for FGC at the state and national levels, a college that is very involved in the communities it serves, and the potential to be even better in these and additional areas. Likewise, I am saddened to know that I will not continue to be a part of this great college, all it is doing, and all it will continue doing in the future. As long as FGC can continue to focus on the betterment of our students, I know it will continue to be a leader in higher education. Hall began his career at Central Arizona College in 1972 as the director of the Forensics Department before working his way up to the vice president for Instructional Services in 1983. Hall was selected as the president of Mohave Community College in 1984 and served in that capacity until 1997, when he became president of Lake City Community College, now Florida Gateway College. During his 17 years at FGC, Halls leadership and vision led to many improvements at the college, including facility renovations, new construction, new site development and new program development. In recent years, FGC has launched its first two baccalaureate programs and has plans to add two more in the coming months. Though he plans to retire, Halls fingerprints are all over the college the newly developed Charles W. Hall Student Center is named after him, and he and his wife, Robin, sponsor the H&H Caf in the Wilson S. Rivers Library and Media Center. The Halls have also endowed four scholarships to The Foundation for Florida Gateway College. During his 45 years in the community college system, Halls leadership has been acknowledged with various awards and recognitions. He has received the Florida Association of Community Colleges Presidents Award for Professional Excellence; served as the Florida Council of Presidents liaison to Florida College System Activities Association; served as chair of the Arizona Council of Presidents; among many, many others. Additionally, Halls legacy extends beyond the college campus and educational realm. He has been heavily involved in community activities since his arrival in Lake City in 1997. His civic involvement includes serving as past president of the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Lake City Rotary Club, board chairman of the Lake City Medical Center, board chairman of the Boy Scouts of America Suwannee River District and member of the Columbia County Rudder Committee, among others. Dr. James Surrency, executive director of the Northeast Florida Educational Consortium and member of the FGC Board of Trustees from 2002-2013, was on the original hiring committee that selected Hall as the new president in 1997. I remember how excited we were of getting someone with his experience, Surrency said. As he came in, we saw he really had a passion for helping to grow the college, as well as his focus on our students and the community. Were just so thankful for his years and the things that hes put in place that are going to certainly have an impact for many years to come. And, as the next president comes in, well be able to start at a point where Florida Gateway College is one of the leading colleges in our state and with programs that have just expanded under Dr. Halls leadership. Dr. Athena Randolph, the current chair of the Florida Gateway College District Board of Trustees, said that Hall leaves a legacy that will be difficult to match. Under his leadership, the college has grown from Lake City Community College to Florida Gateway College, yet his compassion for the students and communities that are served has allowed the college to remain a community where all can gain the tools they need to obtain a higher education and strong foundation, Randolph said. Hence, his guidance has allowed us to confidently say, Start Here. Go Anywhere. His ability to link students, faculty, staff, and the board has certainly made the FGC community a family. His departure will certainly leave a void at FGC. We wish him and Robin the best as they embark upon the next chapter of life. FGC President Hall to retire Hospital patients data stolen BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Shands Starke Regional Medical Centers corporate owner announced Monday that patient records were compromised when its computers were hacked. Data on 4.5 million patients nationwide was reported stolen from Community Health Systems, which owns, leases or operates 206 affiliated hospitals in 29 states. Computer hackers stole data including names, Social Security numbers, birthdays, physical addresses and telephone numbers all information that could be used to assist in identity theft. Credit card information and medical histories were not compromised. Anyone receiving treatment from a CHS-affiliated hospital, physician or clinic in the last five years is reportedly at risk. In addition to Shands Starke, CHS owns the Shands hospitals and Live Oak and Lake City (Lake Shore). According to CNN, the information could allow someone to open a bank or credit card account under a stolen identity, or even take out a loan. Someones personal credit history could be ruined. You dont necessarily have to have been a patient for your information to be in the system. If you were at some time referred by another health care provider to a CHS-affiliate, a record containing your information could have been on file. According to CHS, the hacks took place in April and June of this year by individuals in China using sophisticated malware. The FBI is involved in the investigation to apprehend the perpetrators, who have been linked to other incidents of corporate espionage. The malware has since been wiped from the companys computers and new protections installed. There is unfortunately little that its customers can do to protect themselves. In a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, CHS said it would be notifying those 4.5 million patients as required by state and federal laws. CHS, which is open to lawsuits seeking damages, reported it carries liability insurance to protect it from losses and will offer identity theft protection to victims of the data breach. Those who feel they are at risk can also check their own credit history or employ a company that can monitor and notify them of any suspicious activity. Andrew Emery, who took over the CEO position at Shands Starke in July, did not return a call for comment Tuesday. A News4Jax employee reported he was escorted out of the hospital when inquiring about the situation on Monday. Shands Starkes marketing and communications director, Linda M. Silecchia, provided a statement confirming information that had been reported. It also stated: We take very seriously the security and confidentiality of private patient information and we sincerely regret any concern or inconvenience to patients. Though we have no reason to believe that this data would ever be used, all affected patients are being notified by letter and offered free identity theft protection. Many American companies and organizations have been victimized by foreign-based cyber intrusions. It is up to the federal government to create a national cyber defense that can prevent this type of criminal invasion from happening in the future. A special toll-free phone number has been set up for affected patients who receive letters, but patients who do not receive letters can also call 1-855-205-6951 to confirm their personal information was not compromised. CHS settles Medicare investigation Theres no mention of the hacking on Community Health Systems website, but a recent release does address another issue facing the company: the resolution of United States Justice Department investigation into whether 119 CHS hospitals billed Medicare and other programs for inpatient care that should have been billed as outpatient or observational care. The settlement of the investigation represents the companys desire to avoid the expense and distraction of litigation. According to the release: Under the terms of the agreement, there is no finding of improper conduct by Community Health Systems or its affiliated hospitals, and the company has denied any wrongdoing. The company has agreed to pay $88,257,500 in resolution of all federal government claims, including Medicare, TRICARE and the federal share of the Medicaid claims, and an additional $892,500 to the states for their portions of the Medicaid claims. The settlement agreement does not cover current government investigations into certain hospitals formerly affiliated with (Health Management Associates), which were initiated before Community Health Systems acquisition of HMA in January 2014. The company continues to cooperate with the government and is working to bring resolution to these investigations. CHS Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Wayne T. Smith attributed any misjudgment on the part of billing to shifting and often ambiguous standards. Our organization is dedicated to high ethical standards as we strive to operate in a complex and ever changing regulatory environment, he stated in the press release. The investigation began in 2011. CHS acquired Shands Starke from Health Management Associates last year. Accordin to its website, Community Health Systems, Inc. is one of the largest publicly traded hospital companies in the United States and a leading operator of general acute care hospitals in communities across the country. The companys headquarters are located in Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb south of Nashville.

This amendment does not increase or decrease state revenues. The state revenue restricted to the purposes specified in the amendment is estimated to be $648 million in Fiscal Year 2015-16 and grows to $1.268 billion by the twentieth year. Whether this results in any additional state expenditures d epends upon future legislative actions and cannot be determined. Similarly, the impact on local government revenues, if any, cannot be determined. No additional local government costs are expected. ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 28. Land Acquisition Trust Fund. a) Effective on July 1 of the year following passage of this amendment by the voters, and for a peri od of 20 years after that effective date, the Land Acquisition Trust Fund shall receive no less than 33 pe rcent of net revenues derived from the existing excise tax on documents, as defined in the statutes in eff ect on January 1, 2012, as amended from time to time, or any successor or replacement tax, after the Department of Revenue first deducts a service charge to pay the costs of the collection and enforcement of the excise tax on documents. b) Funds in the Land Acquisition Trust Fund shall be expended only for the following purposes: 1) As provided by law, to finance or refinance: the acquisition and improvement of land, water areas and related property interests, including conservation easements, and resources for conservation lan ds including wetlands, forests, and fish and wildlife habitat; wildlife management areas; lands that pr otect water resources and drinking water sources, including lands protecting the water quality and quantit y of rivers, lakes, streams, springsheds, and lands providing recharge for groundwater and aquifer system s; lands in the Everglades Agricultural Area and the Everglades Protection Area, as defined in Article II, Section 7(b); beaches and shores; outdoor recreation lands, including recreational trails, parks, an d urban open space; rural landscapes; working farms and ranches; historic or geologic sites; together with management, restoration of natural systems, and the enhancement of public access or recreational enjoyment of conservation lands. 2) To pay the debt service on bonds issued pursuant to Article VII, Section 11(e). c) The moneys deposited into the Land Acquisition Trust Fund, as defined by the statutes in effect o n January 1, 2012, shall not be or become commingled with the General Revenue Fund of the state.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor One of the neat things about growing up in a small, mostly rural county is the fact that the friends you make while you are young often turn out to be your best friends and business associates later in life. This is true for lifelong Bradford County resident Lawrence Mosley, and he said he wouldnt have it any other way. Mosley was born on Oct. 20, 1948 on a farm located at the northern end of Starke. Besides Mosley, parents Irvin and Doular had three girls and another boy, all of whom are still living. One sister, Judy Roundtree, still lives in the area. Mosley was educated in Starke, where he played junior varsity football. Sports fell second to practicality in his junior year, however, when he enrolled in the DVT program in which he attended classes half a day, then worked the other half. He may not have known it then but this first job was to set him in the path to what would become his lifelong profession. He worked at the Firestone store at the corner of U.S. 301 and S.R. 100, where CVS Pharmacy is located today. When Mosley graduated in 1966, he went to work there full time until he was drafted in 1968. Drafted into the Army, Mosley went to Vietnam, where he was shot in the leg. This event would change his life 40 years down the road, but at the time he knew it was a bad wound, which became infected with a rare infection in Japan and therefore took over a year to heal. They talked about taking the leg off then, Mosley said. I asked them not to. They said that I would lose it eventually. After 40 years I thought I might have dodged the bullet, but when I had my second knee replacement in 2008 the infection cam back and they had to amputate my leg. I knew it was going to happen eventually, but it was still a shock. Mosley has nothing but praise for the medical treatment he has received at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Gainesville. I have always received the best of care and all of my needs have been met by them, Mosley said. Personally, I have never had a problem scheduling an appointment and have always been satisfied with the treatment I have received. When he had recovered from being shot, Mosley returned to Bradford County. It was 1970 and the Firestone store had closed, so he went to work for Baldwin Chevrolet and Oldsmobile as service manager. After five years there, Mosley decided to strike out on his own and started his own tire business right next door in the old Chrysler building renting from Mack Baldwin. The grand opening occurred on June 1, 1975, a recurring date since he had been shot on June 1, 1969. The business, Mosley Tire Company, eventually moved south of town to the building which had housed the B&G Truck Stop. The property had been foreclosed on and was auctioned by the Florida Bank He credits getting the building to Jay Thompson, the loan officer at the bank, who helped him get financing to made the purchase. Mosley married in 1966 and had one daughter, Dawn Miscally, with wife, Linda. He worked hard at building his business and in his own words Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region FEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL 15160 US Hwy 301 1/2 mile north of Walmart (904) 964-3200 06 DODGE STRATUS .....................................$5,995 06 DODGE RAM ...............................................$7,995 06 JEEP LIBERTY LIMITED ....................................$8,495 11 CHEVY AVEO LT .........................................$8,995 09 NISSAN SENTRA ......................................$9,995 07 FORD SPORT TRAC ...............................$12,995 10 TOYOTA CAMRY LE ...............................$13,995 13 CHRYSLER 200 .......................................$13,995 14 JEEP COMPASS ......................................$15,995 12 NISSAN ROUGE ......................................$16,995 12 RAM 1500 V8 ............................................$16,995 11 LINCOLN MKZ .........................................$17,995 14 CHEVY IMPALA LTZ ...............................$17,995 07 JEEP WRANGLER UNLIMITED .......................$19,995 12 HYUNDAI SONATA LTD ...........................$19,995 11 JEEP WRANGLER RUBICON ..............$27,995 TIRE ROTATIONwith any four wheel brake job.WIPER BLADESwith a 30K, 60K or 90K factory recommended service.23-POINT INSPECTIONon every retail service ticket.

made a good living. As a local businessman, Mosley did his part to serve the community, serving on the Bradford County Commission from 1980-88. He chaired that body three times. Along with commission members Maxie Carter, Jr., E.W. Hodges, E.L. Norman and Wilbur Waters, he faced some difficult decisions that were not always popular with county residents. In 1984, we had major road issues, Mosley said. We had 357 miles of dirt roads in the county with no money to pave them and not enough funds to maintain them as they should be. We ended up passing a localoption gasoline tax of 6 cents to pay for paving. There really wasnt much else we could do. Mosley said he still thinks this tax is a good idea, since there are still more dirt roads in the county in need of paving and all of the roads can benefit from the funds for maintenance and improvements. A year later, the commission was faced with another highdollar issue the closing of the landfill at Keystone Heights. The closing of the landfill was a very big process and was also pretty expensive, Mosley said. It was one of those things which had to be done right then, not put off a year or two. We ended up passing a local-option assessment to cover the costs. I dont think anyone was very happy about it, but it had to be done. Mosley said that, at the time, Bradford County was a very close-knit, clannish community making it unique in the area. It has changed now, he said, mostly due to the influx of residents who work in larger urban areas, but want to live in a quieter area. Although he worked hard, both in his business and in the community, Mosley did occasionally take time out to play. He said he enjoyed fishing, but that his real passion was hunting ducks, geese and doves. My brother was on the Baltimore Police Department and a man he worked with had a large farm on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, Mosley said. Leroy Jackson, Neil Tucker, Pat Welch, Doyle Thomas and I would go up there to shoot geese and ducks. It was always a really fun trip. Always on the look out for fun, Mosley could often be found behind the scenes on humorous and complex practical jokes often in the company of Lawtey sawmill owner Tom Tatum (a friend since childhood) and several other local men. Most memorable of these has to be the mock funeral given to Tatums political machine after Tatum had supported about 20 losing candidates in a row. Mosley was in business with Thomas for a while in T & M Towing. Eventually Thomas bought him out, but the name remains the same. Mosley cites the greatest influence in his life as J.L. Andrews, a local entrepreneur. Andrews would come to the tire store and just hang around and talk. Mosley said he gleaned a great deal of business advice and just plain good sense from chatting with Andrews and listening to his stories. Mosley lost his wife in 1995 to pancreatic cancer. He lost his leg in 2008. He planned then to simply close Mosley Tire, but changed his mind when his son-in-law, Russell Miscally Jr., showed interest in taking over the business. Russell had worked for me for several years at the tire store before going to Jacksonville to do HVAC work, Mosley said. He said he wanted to come back to work in town and would take over the business. I was happy to see him take over. Mosley is retired, but not inactive. While he has not hunted in about 20 years, he does enjoy spending time outside with his purebred Angus cattle. Ive always had a few cattle, Mosley said. I started with just my family land and have slowly built up to almost 100 acres. I now have more the 40 Angus, all purebred. I sell their offspring, usually as breeding stock. I like riding around on my fourwheeler and talking to the cattle. I always get the answer I want from them. Mosley also has an interest in, as he calls it, junk. His partner is Nancy Franks, who knows the antique business. Pickle Peppers Antiques and Thrift Shop is located on U.S. 301 in the building that housed the Silver Lining Indian Trading Post for many years. I like junk, Mosley said with a smile. Nancy knows the business and where I see junk, she sees merchandise. I go to the auctions and look, but I usually let her decide what to buy for the store. Except for old neon automotive signs. I collect those. Off to the side, behind his house, Mosley has a building that has both inside and outside eating areas, as well as kitchen facilities. This building is used for entertaining of all sorts, from birthday parties to political fundraisers. Mosley admits he loves to entertain. The area also gives him a place to exhibit all his automotive memorabilia. Mosley stays busy, often meeting friends for lunch or other activities. He also enjoys spending time with his two grandchildren. He says he is content with his life. I think I have done a great many things I wanted to do in my life and accomplished some things as well, Mosley said. Best of all, I have managed to have a little fun along the way and made some good, lifelong friends as well. BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor What does Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith have in common with horror writer Stephen King? Or local firefighter Ashley Moore share with Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg? And what commonality do Carrie Underwood, Bradford County Tax Collector Teresa Phillips and Martha Stewart all share? All of these people have taken the Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit ALS and have challenged others to do the same. The Ice Bucket Challenge is the latest gimmick used to raise funds for charity. Only about a year old, it has been used to raise money for cancer and other causes before ALS. Its difficult to generate a complete list of challenge takers locally, but participants include a number of local pundits as well and a good share of just plain folks. Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith took the plunge after being challenged by his brother, Rusty. He challenged fellow law enforcement administrators: Starke Police Chief Jeff Johnson, Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter and Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead. Smith was quick to let all his viewers know that Im not scared. Ben Carter and Matt Waters challenged firefighter Ashley Moore. He challenged Jason Hersey, Dustin Hamilton, Bill Crutchfield and Phillip Crawford to face the ice, and then took one of the more creative approaches; he had the bucket of a frontend loader filled with ice water and then dumped on him by an assistant off camera. In his video he stated he was acting to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation. The award for the most creative use of heavy equipment props in the filming of an ice bucket video goes to Bradford County Tax Collector Teresa Phillips however, who performed an ice dumpster challengeallowing a dumpster full of ice water to be poured over her on camera. Other local stars include Randy Alldredge, his wife, Kim, and son, Blake, Barry Warren, Stefan Wheeler, Brian Woodall, Jim Mitzel and his son Patrick, Matt Waters, Lane Reddish and Lorrie Rehberg.

The PAT was no good. Union responded by scoring on three straight possessions. First, another 85-yard drive, that featured a 24-yard run by Durn to the Hilliard 26. Durn followed that with a 16-yard run, setting up a 10-yard touchdown run by Cox, with McDavids PAT making it 14-6 with 58 seconds remaining in the first quarter. On the Tigers next drive, Cox completed 4-of-4 passes for 67 yards. A 29-yard pass play to Johnson set up first-and-goal at the 5-yard line. Johnson, who rushed for 72 yards on seven carries, scored on a run from there, with a two-point pass play from Casey Driggers to Zach Lee making it a 22-6 game. Durn, who rushed for 87 yards on 10 carries, put the Tigers on the move on their next drive with carries of 12 and 14 yards. Darion Robinsons 34-yard run set up first-and-goal at the 6. Robinson, who finished with 47 yards on six carries, eventually scored on a 1-yard run. After McDavids PAT, Union led 29-6 with 4:53 left in the half. Hilliard made it a 17-point game at the half when Jenkins completed a 19-yard touchdown pass to Josh Taylor. Jenkins was 4-of-5 on the drive and finished the game 21-of-36 for 166 yards. Unions Josh Hedman recovered a muffed kick to start the second half. That led to a 31-yard scoring drive that was helped by a 15-yard penalty against Hilliard. Cox found Parker Hodgson across the middle of the field for a 15-yard touchdown and a 35-12 lead. It was the final series of the game for Cox, who completed 13-of-25 passes for 210 yards. Hodgson finished the game with four receptions for 46 yards, while teammate Franklin Williams had four receptions for 44 yards. Most of Williams yards came on the Tigers next scoring drive. He caught two straight passes for gains of 10 and 12 yards as Union marched from Hilliards 42-yard line to the 13. A holding penalty nullified a touchdown run by Durn, but the Tigers would eventually find the end zone when backup BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Ridgeview High Schools varsity team scored a touchdown on the final play of the first half on its way to a 26-0 halftime lead over Keystone Heights upperclassmen. After the junior varsity teams completed the second half, Ridgeview bused out of the Lake Region with a 39-6 win in an Aug. 22 preseason kickoff classic. The Panthers first score came on a 5-yard run by quarterback Jordan Franco. Ridgeview failed to convert on the extra point, giving it a 6-0 lead with 5:26 left in the first quarter. The visitors next scored following a 61-yard pass completion from Franco to Chris Baptiste. On the following play, Baptiste ran it in from 9 yards out. James Perry added the PAT, giving the Panthers a 13-0 lead with 2:45 left in the first half. Ridgeview then put together a 13-play, 68-yard drive at the beginning of the second quarter. Quahlin Patterson highlighted the drive with a 27-yard gallop, and Franco connected with Johnny Ziegler for 21 more. The Panthers overcame two holding penalties, and Moore capped the effort with an 8-yard scoring run. Perry added the PAT, giving the Panthers a 20-0 lead with 9:02 left in the half. Ridgeviews final score in the half came on a 7-yard run by Patrick McDaniel as time expired. Perry added the extra point for a 26-0 lead. Keystone head coach Chuck Dickinson said his defense got pushed around by the bigger players from Orange Park, something he is not used to seeing. Generally, even though they are bigger than us, we usually play them pretty physically, and I didnt think we played defensively as physically as we have in years past, he said. Dickinson also said he was not satisfied by his teams tackling. We had probably 20 missed tackles, he said. I counted 1-23-4 on one play. The coached pinned some of his defensive shortcomings on inexperience. I looked out there at one time tonight on defense, and we had five sophomores on the field, he said. Dickinson added that he expects those 10th-graders to be on the field for much of the season. Dickinson was also without the services of three to four probable starters, including Anton Noble, who missed the game because of sickness. Keystone travels to Callahan Friday, Aug. 29, to open the regular season against West Nassau at 7:30 p.m. The Warriors, who were 3-6 last year, lost 18-7 to Englewood in a preseason classic. The two teams played each other to start the season last year, but the game was called due to the weather after West Nassau had built a 14-0 lead.

Union head coach Ronny Pruitt said it was exciting to watch the young players come through in the end. Theyll remember that, Pruitt said. The Tigers rolled up 599 yards of offense, with its varsity starters gaining 382 of that in the first half alone. The Tigers built a 42-12 lead before junior varsity players began entering the game late in the third quarter. As typical of a preseason game, Pruitt saw some things he likedsuch as a balanced offense, especially in a first half that saw the Tigers gain 193 yards on the ground and 189 yards through the airand some things he didntfour turnovers. Still, he noted that the team was playing quite a number of inexperienced players. Plus, the team met its goal of getting everyone playing time. Overall, with the effort they gave, Im proud of them, Pruitt said. Everybody got in. Im happy with that. The teams exchanged turnovers to open the game, but the Tigers put together an 85yard scoring drive following James Fords fumble recovery. Isaiah Johnson sparked the drive with a 22-yard run, while Antwan Durn had a 17-yard carry to the Hilliard 46. Johson, who had 141 yards rushing and receivingas well as 105 yards on four kick returns capped the drive when he took a short pass from Caleb Cox and turned it into a 40-yard touchdown. Tyler McDavids PAT put Union up 7-0 at the 6:46 mark of the first quarter. Hilliard pulled to within one with 2:33 left in the first quarter, taking advantage of a short a short punt. The Flashes had to drive only 28 yards, with a 10yard scramble by quarterback Bryce Jenkins setting up Austin Turners 5-yard touchdown run. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Lightning prevented the Bradford High School football team from playing its Aug. 21 preseason kickoff classic against Buchholz, so the Tornadoes will do without a warm-up and take to the field for the first time in their regular-season opener against Suwannee on Friday, Aug. 29, at 7:30 p.m. in Starke. This marked the second time in three years that weather has kept Bradford from playing its preseason game. Last year, the Tornadoes did play a kickoff classic, but their regular-season opener against Suwannee was canceled due to the weather. Bradford and Buchholz were supposed to play Aug. 21 at Citizens Field in Gainesville, but lightning delayed the start and caused the eventual postponement. At approximately 8:30 p.m., coaches and administrators from both schools discussed possibly postponing the game until Aug. 22, playing it either at the Buchholz practice field or at Bradford Highs David Hurse Stadium since Gainesville High School would be playing on Citizens Field that night. However, in the end, it was decided to cancel the game. Suwannee did play a preseason game, losing 28-27 to Madison County in overtime. The Bulldogs went 7-3 last year and was the runner-up in District 5 in Class 5A.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is the latest gimmick used to raise funds for charity. Only about a year old, it has been used to raise money for cancer and other causes before ALS. Whatever else you may say about the Ice Bucket Challenge is has raised an amazing amount of money in a relatively short time an amount so high it has been called a level of unprecedented giving, which the U.S. has never seen before, except perhaps in cases of disasters or other emergencies, an ALS spokesperson said. So far total donations are nearing the $80 million mark, with an estimated 1.7 million donors nationwide and its not over yet. So get your bucket, a bag of ice and decide who you want to invite to freeze or fund a great cause and, above all else, dont forget the towels. quarterback Driggers scrambled to his left before throwing back across the field to a wide-open Williams in the end zone for a 16-yard touchdown. McDavids PAT put the Tigers up 42-12. Driggers completed 3-of5 passes for 38 yards on his two series of work, while also catching three passes from Cox for 39 yards. Hilliard made the score 4220 after an eight-play, 71-yard drive. Gunner Chaires caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from Jenkins, with an Armani Scott run resulting in a successful twopoint play. The first two drives that featured junior varsity players ended in fumbles. Hilliard couldnt take advantage of the first one, but did drive 92 yards following the second. The big play was a 47-yard pass play to the Union 19. Union also committed a personal foul on the play, which set the Flashes up at the 9-yard line. Chaires scored on a run from there to make the score 42-26 with 6:06 to play. Union fumbled the ensuing kickoff, with Hilliard recovering at the Union 33. Travis Ray scored on a touchdown run from there. Chaires run on the twopoint play made the score 42-34. The Tigers Andre Hampton (nine carries, 91 yards) had a 40yard touchdown run nullified by a holding penalty, but the big run set up first down at the Hilliard 25. Union, though, would eventually turn the ball over on downs. A 32-yard pass play had the Flashes on the move again, while a 10-yard run by Chaires converted a fourth-down play. Chaires (4-of-8, 113 yards) later tossed a 20-yard touchdown to Brayden Carroll with 1:04 to play. Chaires successfully completed a pass on the twopoint conversion to tie the score. Hilliard attempted an onside kick, which Union recovered at the 50. A personal foul penalty on the Flashes helped the Tigers move to the 25-yard line. Alexander then had a 21-yard run to the 4-yard line. A holding penalty wiped out a touchdown run by Cook with less than 10 seconds remaining, but with time left for one more play, the quarterback hooked up with Hendricks for the game winner. It was theirs to win or lose, Pruitt said of the junior varsity players. That was the way it was going to be. The Tigers varsity team opens the season in earnest Friday, Aug. 29, with a home game against Potters House at 7:30 p.m. Potters House, which went 2-8 last season, is coming off of a 20-6 loss to Class 4A Ribault in a kickoff classic. Union defeated Potters House 34-0 last year in just a half of play before weather forced the game to be called early. The junior varsity team will travel to Newberry Thursday, Aug. 28, for a 7 p.m. game. quickly determine someones exact age. Ive met fourteen year olds that could pass for eighteen, and twenty-two year olds that could pass for twelve. So until a proper examination can be arranged, or proof of identity established, there will of course be questions as to someones age. As for the allegations of this being a phony scenario full of hypocrisy Im afraid I dont know what exactly is phony about it. Do you question that the children are here? Because they are. Do you question the conditions in their home countries, which are far worse than we have here in America? If you do, I would recommend a visit. Things such as air conditioning, sanitary water, plentiful food, pocket change, and indoor plumbing are not always available once you leave the luxuries of America. We do have our problems yes. Did they go about things the wrong way? Of course they did. But on the other hand, what parent would not do whatever it took to help their child? The argument about abortion is completely irrelevant to this conversation regardless of your views. This is not about those performing abortions or having them performed. This is about human children, alive and out in the world, who have found their way to our country. As for saying that the children are stealing jobs from blacks, that is an interesting statement. I was not aware that they were coming here to specifically steal jobs from any one group of people, be it by race or economic status. In fact, most illegal immigrants tend to work as migrant farm labor, filling agricultural jobs which would otherwise go unfilled by the surrounding community. The jobs only are required for parts of the year. Americans tend to stay in one place and do not generally want to move from region to region following work in the way the immigrants who have the gumption to come here do. Many places, such as orange groves here in Florida, would go out of business if they had to rely on only local help. As you stated, America does have many unresolved issues. Women are still not equal. Non-Christians are treated as less than equals. The LGBT community is the same way. Our political system is more focused on fighting each other than on cooperating and compromise. A good portion of the country wont let anything the government does accomplish anything because they dislike the president, rather than making the best of it. Then theres immigration. Yes, reform is needed. But to deny children even the basic aspects of simple human compassion is just inhumane. We judge other nations based on their human rights policies. Would you have us toss a bunch of children in the desert to die? There may be no right decision to make in this case. However, there is a legal one: the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, signed into law by George W. Bush. An excerpt from the New York Times: Originally pushed by a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers as well as by evangelical groups to combat sex trafficking, the bill gave substantial new protections to children entering the country alone who were not from Mexico or Canada by prohibiting them from being quickly sent back to their country of origin. Instead, it required that they be given an opportunity to appear at an immigration hearing and consult with an advocate, and it recommended that they have access to counsel. It also required that they be turned over to the care of the Department of Health and Human Services, and the agency was directed to place the minor in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child and to explore reuniting those children with family members. It is classic unintended consequences, said Marc R. Rosenblum, deputy director of the U.S. Immigration Policy Program at the Migration Policy Institute. This was certainly not what was envisioned. http:// www.nytimes.com/2014/07/08/ us/immigrant-surge-rooted-inlaw-to-curb-child trafficking. html?_r=0 As they state, this is not what was intended by the law, but it is the law. Until that law can be changed by a squabbling Congress that refuses to cooperate with one another on the simplest of things there is only so much the government can do without breaking the law, which Republicans have already accused the president of doing on other issues with much glee and ire. Do we have a responsibility to take care of the worlds children? That is debatable. But these children are here, now, and whether abandoned or unaccompanied (or both, as the case may be) they are alone. If we mistreat them, how are we living up to the standard we try to set on a humanitarian basis? Do government agencies break laws? Of course, we all know they do. But to give permission to do so on this or anything is an open door to a very dark road. There are limits to compassion. Helping these children for the time being, however, will not break us. We need to work to fix the problem from progressing, but not abandon our duty to our fellow human beings by throwing them to the wolves.

Unfortunately, one group of three elected officials has opted to let its power go to its head. These three school board members have decided among themselves (sunshine?) that they should have even more power. First, they oppose actions by the ELECTED Superintendent of Schools and then they attempt to have the Superintendent APPOINTED rather than elected by the voters of the county. They are so anxious to assume this new power, they insist on an immediate decision. When the county commission voted to change the date, they initiate a law suit against the county. They are hiring an attorney from outside the county to represent their interests. Of course, the taxpayers of the Dear Editor: In response to Mr. Youngs comments about the irrelevance of compassion when dealing with children from south of the border: First, let me start off by stating that for most of the children in question, their approximate age is surely not in question. Some of them, however, will of course be questioned. Without any proof of when someone was born or what their name is (and I do mean actual proof, not just a simple statement), it can be difficult to Dear Editor: FactThe world owes the Jews much.

Henry Hodges Lawtey The facts concerning Jews A county divided county will absorb the cost of both the school boards hired gun and the attorney for the county. In my view, there are several problems relative to the school board appointing a Superintendent of Schools. First, do the board members have the expertise to make such a selection or will a high priced recruiting firm be hired to assist in the selection (again at taxpayer expense)? Next, how often do we hear of boards having to buy out the contract of the appointed Superintendent, usually before the end of the contract? Finally, I am not willing to give up my right to vote for any elected official. If we the voters are wise enough to elect the School Board members, why are we not wise enough to elect the Superintendent? Maybe, some members serve for too long a period. I would like to present term limits for members of the board similar to those on county commissioners. Do I sound angry and frustrated? Only because I am.

BY TRACY LEE TATE Special to the Telegraph-TimesMonitor Some old friends have moved to new quarters in Starke, but want all their patients to know they are still around and offering the same great services which they did in their old location. Pediatric Associates of Argyle, P.A. moved last week from their Edwards Road location to new quarters at 417 E. Call St. This is a satellite office of Dr. Orlando Rendons practice in Argyle in Jacksonville. Moving with Rendon is Anne L. Perantoni, an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP). She will be at the new location five days a week, while Rendon will be there two days a week, with other doctors from his Argyle office there the other three days. Dr. Josephine Yatco will be working some days in the Starke practice, as will ARNPs Lauren Shivers and Christina Phillips. Rendon and Perantoni are both familiar faces in Bradford County. Before opening his own practice, Rendon had been a practicing pediatrician in the county since 1999. He has worked at Primary Care Associates, Bradford Family Medical Group and Shands Medical Group of Starke. Since November 2003, he has also worked as a preceptor (a handson teacher) for family practice residents from the University of Florida School of Medicine. Rendon is a graduate, with a doctor of medicine degree, from the Far Eastern University in Quezon City, Philippines. He interned at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center in Quezon, as well as working for the Rural Health Service and as staff physician for the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System. He completed a pediatric internship at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola and a pediatric residency at the University of Florida Health Science Center in Jacksonville, where he won the award for Best Resident in Continuity Care Clinic in the Department of Pediatrics. Prior to entering private practice he also worked for a year as chief resident in pediatrics at FHSC, then worked as a public health physician in Alexandria, Virginia. Rendon is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and is board certified in pediatrics. Perantoni is licensed as an advanced registered nurse practitioner, a registered nurse and a pediatric nurse practitioner. She holds a bachelors of science in nursing from Harwick College in Oneconta, New York and a master of science in nursing from the University of Florida. She has been working in Bradford County since 1992, as well as serving as an assistant professor and preceptor at the University of Florida, Graduate School, College of Nursing. Perantoni is a member of the American and Florida Nurses Associations. Both Rendon and Perantoni said their lives outside of work revolve around their spouses and, most especially, their children. Rendon and wife, Ruby, have one daughter, Camille who is 14 years old. She attends Bishop Snyder Catholic School in Jacksonville, where she is in the ninth grade. She already said she wants to do what her daddy does when she grows up. When not spending time with his daughter, Rendon said he like to shoot hoops (although his jump shot has declined with his age), walking on the beach and cooking Filipino food. Perantoni says when she is not spending time with her two daughters, Sarah, a senior at Keystone Heights High School and Christine, a fourth-grader at Southside Elementary School, and husband Doug Samons, a teacher at Southside, she likes to read and cook. Sarah says she wants to study nursing when she graduates, while Christine wants to be an aerospace engineer and be the first person to discover life on Mars. Rendon and Perantoni said they are thrilled with their new office and the building whose style they feel lends a family like appearance to the practice. The new building also allows them more space and has the advantage that the practice now owns its quarters rather then renting. Both are highly complementary of their staff, which made the move with them. Ruby Rendon is practice administrator. She holds a master of arts degree in human resources management from Mary Mount University in Arlington, Virginia. Perantonis medical assistant, Terri Henderson has been with her for 16 years and brings a total of 20-plus years experience to the practice. Barbara Kirkland, who manages the front desk, has been with the practice for 14 years. Christine Whitehead has been with them more than 10 years as a medical assistant. Medical assistant Casey Nettles has been with the practice for three years. We are all dedicated to our patients and want to cater to the communitys needs, Orlando Rendon said. We see young people from newborn to age 21. We do both well and sick visits and care for children with chronic illnesses, such as asthma and seizure disorders. We want to be part of the community and keep that in mind everyday. Pediatric Associates at Argyle is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. They are accepting new patients and accept most medical insurance, including Medicaid. They may be reached at 904-368-0368. Corene (Granny) Broughton celebrated her 84th Birthday and her many years of faithfulness and service to the Lord, on Saturday, August 10th.

half with an interception each. Interlachen capped an 80-yard drive with a touchdown with 15 seconds remaining in the first half. Bradfords Rodderick Broomfield, though, turned in a huge play when he blocked the extra point. Luke completed four passes for 205 yards, with Dinkins catching every pass. Wakulla 28 BHS 7 An 80-plus-yard interception return for a touchdown by Jeffers accounted for Bradfords only points in a 28-7 loss to Wakulla. Wakulla led just 13-0 at the half, but its two touchdowns covered 50 and 74 yards on pass plays. Jeffers interception return made it a 21-7 game with 32 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Wakulla answered with a seven-minute scoring drive. Bradford was held to 38 yards in the second half, but Luke finished the game with 10 completions for 141 yards. Ardley caught three passes for 94 yards. BHS 27 Umatilla 14 6B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 TOP: Tournament director Teeing off for Tornado pride BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Bradford was the District 4-4A runner-up, which earned the Tornadoes a postseason berth, but most of the 2013 season was a struggle as the team won just three games. The Tornadoes went 3-1 in the district, with the lone loss coming by just one point against Keystone Heights. The nondistrict schedule was tough, though, with Bradford losing by an average margin of 21 points against mostly bigger schools. Here is a recap of the 2013 season: Baker Co. 43 BHS 6 Baker County scored four touchdowns of 21 yards or more, including two on 68-yard pass plays, as the Tornadoes lost their first game 43-6. The Tornadoes fell behind 21-0 before quarterback Jacob Luke hooked up with Cody Bias for a 14-yard touchdown with 7:06 to play in the second quarter. Bradfords offense was disrupted for the most part as Baker County made 15 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Fort White 37 BHS 27 A 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Kenny Dinkins made it a three-point game with approximately seven minutes to play, but the Bradford defense could not slow down Fort Whites rushing attack in a 37-27 loss. Fort White rushed for approximately 400 yards and answered Dinkins score with a 76-yard drive that was capped by a 20-yard touchdown run. Bradford fell behind 9-0, but scored two straight touchdowns on 54and 30-yard receptions by Dinkins. Lukes 10-yard touchdown pass to Chris Barron helped send the Tornadoes into the half up 20-16. The Tornadoes were held to 85 yards of offense in the second half as Dinkins kickoff return accounted for the teams only points. Dinkins finished with six receptions for 144 yards. Defensively, Toddreke Reed had a fumble recovery. BHS 25 The Villages 8 Travon Thomas 80-yard touchdown run was one of several big scoring plays that enabled Bradford to defeat the Villages 25-8 in its first district game. Thomas run occurred on the first play from scrimmage. The Tornadoes didnt score again in the first quarter, but went up 13-0 with Lukes 36-yard touchdown pass to Dinkins in the second quarter. The Villages put together a time-consuming 79-yard scoring drive to open the second half and make it a five-point game, but the Tornadoes responded with a scoring drive of their own, capped by Barrons 13-yard touchdown reception. Defensive back Holden Huggins made a key pass breakup in the end zone on a fourth-down play. Bradford then extended its lead with Lukes 69yard touchdown pass to Dinkins. Dinkins finished with three receptions for 118 yards, while Luke completed four passes for 131 yards. Thomas, who rushed for 119 yards on four carries, also had an interception on defense. Palatka 38 BHS 12 Bradford was within four points late in the first half, but Palatka would go on to build a 38-6 lead en route to handing the Tornadoes a 38-12 loss. Bias 1-yard touchdown run made it a 10-6 game, but Palatka returned the ensuing kickoff 74 yards to set up a touchdown before the end of the half. A 48-yard kickoff return to open the second half led to another Palatka touchdown, while a Bradford fumble set up another score. Dinkins, who had six receptions for 130 yards, caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Luke in the fourth quarter. The touchdown was set up by Don Jeffers interception. Keaaris Ardley also had an interception for Bradford. BHS 14 Interlachen 12 Interlachen gave Bradford a scare with a fumble recovery for a touchdown with approximately two minutes to play, but the Tornadoes hung on for a 14-12 district win. The Rams went for two points after the late touchdown, but their pass attempt was incomplete. Bradford went up 14-0 in the first half, thanks to a big-time performance from Dinkins, who turned two short passes from Luke into touchdowns of 76 and 75 yards. Huggins and Thomas also had big defensive plays in the first BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Keystone Heights won its first district championship in 16 years when it defeated Bradford 2120 to capture the District 4-4A crown. Prior to that close win, though, the Indians won three district games by a combined score of 124-20. Presented here is a recap of the teams entire season: KHHS 19 Wildwood 0 After their season opener against West Nassau was cancelled due to the weather, the Indians traveled to Wildwood and again dealt with weather issues, which forced a delayed start. The game was played, though, and Keystone came away with a 19-0 victory that featured a defensive effort that yielded just 30 yards and included three fumble recoveries by Chase Musselman. Two bad punts by Wildwood set up two Keystone scores: a 10yard touchdown pass from Blake Valenzuela to Micah Brown and an 8-yard touchdown run by Josh Knight. Keystone also added a touchdown on a 6-yard pass from Valenzuela to Kyler Teague. Union Co. 21 KHHS 7 Keystones offense struggled against Class 1A power Union County in a 21-7 loss. The Indians struggled offensively, not picking up a first down until late in the first half. Their lone score came in the latter stages of the fourth quarter when Anton Noble caught a 29-yard touchdown pass from Valenzuela.

Another Seabrook interception sparked a 71-yard scoring drive that was capped by a field goal. Eustis 16 KHHS 12 Keystone had 303 yards to Eustis 191, but lost 16-12. A fumble set up Eustis first score. Then, after a pair of Schofield field goals, Eustis added another touchdown on a sack and fumble return. Eustis was later awarded a safety when Keystone was penalized for holding in its own end zone. Noble, who had a 43-yard touchdown run, finished with 198 yards. Grant McGee had a fumble recovery for the defense, while Austin Hogg had an interception. KHHS 40 Villages 13 The Villages scored first, but Keystone left little doubt as to who the victor would be in a 4013 district win. A McGee interception set up a 15-yard touchdown run by Noble. Valenzuela then threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Brown, while Noble added a 5-yard touchdown run to give the Indians a twoscore lead at the half. Noble didnt waste any time increasing the lead as he took the second-half kickoff and returned it 85 yards for a touchdown. Sam Anderson added a 5-yard touchdown run, while Ray Trimble scored on an 11-yard interception return. The Villages tacked on a fourth-quarter score against Keystone reserves. KHHS 49 Interlachen 0 Keystone rushed for 341 yards in defeating district opponent Interlachen 49-0. Noble rushed for 169 yards and a touchdown in just the first half, though he sustained what would be a season-ending injury. Carroll had the first two scores on runs of 5 and 35 yards. A fumble recovery by Harvin set up a 35-yard touchdown run by Noble. The Indians led 28-0 at the half after a 14-yard touchdown run by Valenzuela. A fumble recovery by Johnnie Fitts led to a 12-yard touchdown pass from Valenzuela to Brown. After a 43-yard touchdown run by Gilio, Anderson set up his own 7-yard touchdown run with an interception. KHHS 21 Bradford 20 Carroll scored on a 4-yard touchdown run with seven minutes to play, followed by Schofields all-important PAT for a 21-20, district championshipclinching win over Bradford. Valenzuela put the Indians on the board first with a 43-yard touchdown run, but Bradford tied the score on a 29-yard fumble return. Brown sent Keystone into the half up by seven when he caught a 49-yard touchdown pass from Valenzuela. Bradford opened the second half with a 65-yard touchdown drive, capped by a 20-yard run. However, Bradford missed the PAT. Keystones defense held Bradford to 57 yards the rest of the game. After the Carroll score and Schofield PAT that put the Indians up by one, Gilio had an interception to stop a Bradford drive. Despite the big win, Keystone suffered a blow with a seasonending injury to Anderson. Santa Fe 34 KHHS 7 Santa Fe scored 20 points in the second quarter en route to handing Keystone a 34-7 loss. Keystone made it a 20-7 game when Valenzuela threw a touchdown pass to Brighton Gibbs, but Santa Fe responded with an 81-yard touchdown drive. Two of Santa Fes scores were set up by Keystone turnovers. Bolles 32 KHHS 10 Another key injury didnt help the Indians in a 32-10 loss to Bolles in the regional semifinals. Valenzuela suffered an injury in the second quarter and never returned. At that point, the Indians trailed 13-3. Bolles scored with 57 seconds remaining in the second quarter to take a 19-3 lead into the half and increased that lead early in the third quarter with a 42-yard touchdown run. Other than a field goal by Schofield, Keystones only points came on a 1-yard touchdown run by Lane Blanton. It was a big night for Dinkins, who caught two touchdown passes and threw one of his own in a 27-14 district win over Umatilla. Dinkins threw a 76-yard touchdown pass to Jeffers on a trick play that put Bradford up 7-0 with 5:27 remaining in the first quarter. The receiver later caught touchdown passes of 22 and 60 yards from Luke to put the Tornadoes up 20-0. Jarvis DeSue capped Bradfords scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run. Umatilla scored twice in the fourth, successfully executing an onside kick that led to its second touchdown. Dinkins finished with four receptions for 126 yards, while Luke completed six passes for 144 yards. DeSue rushed for 92 yards on 14 carries. KHHS 21 Bradford 20 A missed extra point proved to be the difference in Bradfords 21-20 loss to Keystone Heights. The win gave Keystone the District 4 championship. Bradford fell behind when Keystone quarterback Blake Valenzuela scored on a 43yard touchdown run, but the Tornadoes Greg Ruise would later strip Valenzuela of the ball and return it 29 yards for a score to tie the game at 7-7 at the 8:19 mark of the second quarter. A 1-yard touchdown run by Thomas put the Tornadoes up 14-7 with 1:19 left in the first half, but the Indians made it a tie game going into the locker room after Valenzuelas 49-yard touchdown pass. The Tornadoes opened the second half with a 65yard scoring drive, capped by DeSues 20-yard touchdown run. The ensuing PAT was botched, though, with kicker Barron picking up a bad snap and attempting to run it into the end zone. Bradfords offense was held to 57 yards after DeSues touchdown run. Thomas made a big play on defense, intercepting a pass in his own end zone after Bradford had fumbled the ball away. However, the Indians would put together a 65-yard touchdown drive that resulted in the winning score with approximately seven minutes to play. Eastside 38 BHS 25 Bradfords defense surrendered 481 yards in a 38-25 loss to Eastside to conclude the regular season. Eastside scored on a fake field-goal play and a 49-yard touchdown pass en route to building a 19-0 lead. DeSue scored on a 1-yard run to make it 19-6 with 2:29 to play in the first half, but the Rams added a score before the half to go up by 19 points. Ardley recovered a Bradford fumble into Eastsides end zone for a touchdown to make the score 25-12 in the early stages of the third quarter. Eastside, though, answered with a 31yard touchdown run and then a 22-yard touchdown run after successfully executing an onside kick. Luke completed touchdown passes of 22 yards to Ardley and 5 yards to Justin Williams. Dinkins caught three passes for 68 yards. Raines 58 BHS 6 Bradford fell behind 26-0 and was held to 76 yards in a 58-6 loss to Raines in a first-round regional playoff game. Dinkins 58-yard touchdown reception from Luke was the lone bright spot for the Tornadoes. Raines scored 26 points in the third quarter off of two passes, a punt return and an interception return to completely put the game away. 10B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 HWY 301, STARKE | 904.964.7200murrayfordsuperstore.comTHIS IS FORD COUNTRY *All prices net of rebates, dealer retains all rebates if any.
