Alumni register online at unioncountyband.com etc AMENDMENT 1: Water & Land Conservation Official Ballot Title: Water and Land Conservation Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands Synopsis: Amendment 1 requires 33% of the net revenue collected from the documentary stamp tax (applied primarily to real estate transactions) to go toward the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. This fund was established in 1963 with the goal of purchasing land for parks and recreational purposes. Currently, the Legislature has the authority to determine how much funding the Land Acquisition Trust Fund receives on a year-to-year basis. The Financial Impact Estimating Conference reports that the amount of state revenue that would go to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund under Amendment 1 is $648 million during fiscal year 2015-16 and could grow to $1.268 billion by fiscal year 2034-35, when the amendment would expire. Since 1998, voters in 24 states have approved 79 laws creating $28 billion in new funds for land conservation. Voters in 11 states have placed funding for water and land conservation and management in their state constitutions. A vote YES on Amendment 1 would: Provide a long-term funding mechanism for environmental conservation without a new tax. Remove reliance on yearly legislative funding for water and land conservation projects. Enhance publicly held recreational lands, possibly contributing to economic growth through increased eco-tourism. A vote NO on Amendment 1 would: Not establish a longterm funding mechanism for environmental conservation. Retain the Legislatures ability to make budgetary decisions on a year-to-year basis. Not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to environmental conservation where it would be difficult to modify or remove. AMENDMENT 2: Medical Marijuana Official Ballot Title: Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions Synopsis: Amendment 2 allows individuals with debilitating diseases, as determined by a licensed Florida physician, to purchase and use medical marijuana. During the 2014 session, the state of Florida passed legislation to allow for the medical use of Charlottes Web, a strain of non-psychoactive cannabis. Amendment 2 would legalize all forms of marijuana for medical use but states that no insurance company or government agency can be required to cover its cost. Additionally, the amendment prohibits the operation of a car or boat while under the influence of marijuana and allows workplaces, schools and public spaces to ban marijuana from their facilities. Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia have laws allowing for the use of medical marijuana. A vote YES on Amendment 2 would: Provide for the legal use of marijuana for medical purposes by individuals with debilitating diseases, as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Maintain the current prohibition on marijuana use for recreational purposes. Require the Department of Health to monitor centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and to issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. A vote NO on Amendment 2 would: Not affect the current prohibition on marijuana use in the state of Florida. Maintain the status quo as it relates to enforcement of the marijuana laws currently in place. Not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to medical marijuana where it would be difficult to modify or remove. AMENDMENT 3: Judicial Appointments Official Ballot Title: Prospective Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies Synopsis: Amendment 3 would require a governor to prospectively fill vacancies on the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal when a justice or judge: (1) reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70, (2) fails to qualify for a retention election or (3) fails to secure a majority of votes during his or her retention election. Since 2001, the 26 Judicial Nominating Commissions (JNCs) for the Florida Supreme Court, district courts of appeal and trial courts have been comprised solely of gubernatorial appointees (nine per JNC) who serve fouryear terms, from July to July. In 2006, the Florida Supreme Court ruled that JNCs could begin their interviewing and nominating process prior to a judicial vacancy occurring, but an appointment could not be made until after the justices or judges term actually expired. Because it is possible for a justices or judges term to end on the same day that a new governor takes office, the Florida Supreme Courts 2006 opinion can be read as authorizing the newly sworn-in governor to fill those vacancies. All judicial appointments must be made from a list of judicial applicants screened by the appropriate JNC. The governor must select a nominee from that list he or she is not allowed to reject the entire list and request a new slate of JNC nominees. In a situation in which a judicial vacancy is created on the first day of a new governors term, Amendment 3 would authorize the outgoing governor rather than the newly elected governor to appoint the successor judge or justice. A vote YES on Amendment 3 would: Invalidate court interpretations of Floridas Constitution as to who has the authority to fill judicial vacancies. Enable an outgoing governor to make appointments to the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal. Possibly shorten the time of a judicial vacancy. A vote NO on Amendment 3 would: Ensure that a newly swornin governor will fill prospective judicial vacancies. Keep language relating to judicial appointments out of the Florida Constitution, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. Continue to allow judicial vacancies to exist for up to 120 days, possibly creating workload issues within the courts. GOVERNOR and Lieutenant Governor All candidates were given the same word limit and their responses have been printed as submitted. Questions asked: 1. So far Florida has refused to accept $51 billion in federal funds that would extend affordable health care to working class citizens. Would you support the acceptance of these funds? Please explain your reasoning. 2. As a low-lying state, Florida is extremely vulnerable to the effects of sea level rise caused by global warming. Would you support joining the more than 30 states that have passed a renewable energy standard with a clear target for reducing reliance on fossil fuels and providing an incentive for businesses in developing sustainable sources of energy? 3. A quality system of public education is an economic driver. What changes, if any, do you propose that would move Floridas K-12 and university systems into the upper echelon? 4. Do you support Floridas laws that limit local governments from enacting restrictions on firearms, or do you believe that local municipalities should have greater control over gun regulations in their own communities? Please explain your position. 5. What qualities would you look for in your appointments to the judiciary and what changes, if any, do you think are needed in the judicial nomination and appointment process? 6. Do you support the restoration of civil rights for former felony offenders who have completed their sentences? Please explain your position.

Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 Union County Times 3A NOTICE OF CERTIFICATION OF TAX ROLLPURSUANT TO SECTION 193.122, FLORIDA STATUTES, BRUCE D. DUKES, PROPERTY APPRAISER FOR UNION COUNTY HEREBY GIVES NOTICE THAT THE 2014 TAX ROLLS FOR UNION COUNTY WERE CERTIFIED TO THE TAX COLLECTOR ON THE 16TH DAY OF OCTOBER 2014, FOR THE COLLECTION OF TAXES. Donate A Boat sponsored by boat angel outreach centers STOP CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN www.boatangel.com2-Night Free Vacation!or Car Today! 800 1 CAR L ANGE made real, lasting reform to our Medicaid program to improve access, quality and cost for low-income families in Florida. Some states have chosen to spend millions of taxpayer money to grow their Medicaid program even more. It would be wrong to make promises to provide care that the state could ultimately not afford or sustain. 2. My administration adopted a greenhouse gas reduction program that requires industrial business to use the best available technology to reduce carbon emissions. Since 2010, power plants cut their carbon emissions rate by 10 percent and other emissions have decreased 37 percent in that time. We are also making significant investments in Everglades restoration, alternative water supplies and beach renourishment. 3. I will continue to prioritize historic and strategic education funding investments in our K-12 public schools. During my first term, I increased the K-12 education budget with the state funds by almost $2.3 billion. I will again seek historic funding for higher education while keeping tuition low and pushing for more $10,000 degree programs. 4. I support having uniform, statewide regulations so that responsible gun owners can comply with the law. 5. When appointing judges, I seek individuals who will serve honorably, competently, humbly and with a demonstrated commitment to following the law. 6. I support restoration of rights for former felons on a caseby-case basis. Former felons should express remorse for their past actions and demonstrate a commitment to leading a productive, crime-free life. Charlie Crist (D, former governor) and Annette Taddeo Age: 58 Education: Florida State University, Samford University Cumberland School of Law Hometown: St. Petersburg, Florida www.charliecrist.com Answers: 1. I will bring back $51 billion of our own taxpayer dollars to extend access to quality healthcare. Well help one million Floridians obtain coverage, create 120,000 jobs, and save $800 million over the next 10 years. Rick Scotts fear of the Tea Party prevents him from taking action, but I will fight to expand access to affordable healthcare for Floridas families. Its the right thing to do for our people and for our economy. 2. Yes. In fact, as governor I promoted renewable energy and pushed utilities to produce 20 percent of their power from renewable sources. Ive done it before, and Ill do it again. When asked about climate change, Rick Scott says hes not a scientist. Im not a scientist either, but I know climate change is real and caused by burning fossil fuels. We need a governor who will acknowledge the problem and take action, not one who pretends it doesnt exist. 3. The first and most important step is to undo Rick Scotts drastic cuts to education. Even during this years budget surplus, he allocated less than 7 percent of the new revenue for K-12 education. Funding education isnt a revenue problem; its a priorities problem. Ill make Floridas children a priority again by restoring funding for K-12 education, pre-kindergarten and Bright Futures to the record levels they were at when I was governor. 4. I grew up in a sportsmen family, and I support the Second Amendment. I support real background checks and tougher penalties for criminals who use high-capacity magazines to commit a crime. I believe the state is the proper place to regulate weapons and that local communities can have a stronger voice in certain limited situations, such as protecting against gun violence in schools, etc. 5. I will respect the Bars JNC nominations. Rick Scotts unprecedented rejections of nominees based on his narrow-minded litmus tests reduces diversity and dissuades qualified applicants. I will appoint intellectually honest and empathetic jurists. Rick Scotts attempt to create a judiciary that reflects his political views is dangerous. With the next governor selecting at least four Supreme Court justices, this is a key issue facing this election. 6. I support the automatic restoration of civil rights for non-violent offenders who have completed their sentences and paid all restitution and fines. During my first term as governor, we restored the rights of 150,000 Floridians. Since then, Rick Scott has reinstated barriers to deny people their rights, and only 1,200 have had them restored. I believe in forgiveness, and Ill push to once again restore rights to those who deserve a second chance. Other candidates: Adrian Wyllie (LPF) and Greg Roe Farid Khavari (NPA) and Lateresa A.

Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 Union County Times 5A University in Tallahassee where he graduated in 1973 and began a career with AT&T where he is still employed today. Alexander and his wife Hattie raised four children and make their home in Orange Park. Stouten Howard Stouten Howard was a 1972 UCHS graduate and is a member of a large family residing in the Worthington Springs area. Howard was a two-way star for the Tigers under coach Charlie Roberts and was selected to the 1970 and 1971 All State teams. He was also selected to the 1971 All Suwannee Conference Team. He was selected to the 1970 and 1971 Gainesville Sun All Area Teams and the 1971 All Region Team. Upon graduating from UCHS Howard signed with Memphis State University where he played under famed offensive coach Lindy Infante. Howard passed away in 2002 at the age of 48. He was the son of Glen and Betty Joe Howard of Dukes. Continued from 1A BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A project to generate electricity from landfill gas is looking more promising than ever for the New River Solid Waste Association. Alan Beer of Florida Energy Partners, who had previously spoken to the board about a selling its power to Duke Energy, said a new opportunity had presented itself since the August meeting. I wouldnt bring it here to you today unless I thought it was a better opportunity for New River as well as an opportunity for us to (pick up) another month on the schedule, he said. According to Beer, working with Seminole Electric instead of Duke Energy to be the guaranteed purchaser of the power will get the project accomplished sooner because the power purchase agreement wont have to go to the Public Service Commission for approval, and allow the landfill to work with its own power supplier. Seminole Electric provides the power sold through Clay Electric Cooperative. Seminole already has a power purchase agreement in place that has been approved by its board that simply needs to be executed by both parties, Beer said. Florida law requires utilities to purchase renewable energy when it is available. The price is based on the avoided cost of generating that power. Landfill Executive Director Darrell ONeal also pointed out that there were no termination fees built into the Seminole agreement as there were with the Duke agreement. Another big advantage for the landfill is the lack of a wheeling charge to transport the electricity and the negligible line loss. Getting the power to Duke would require using both Clay Electric and Florida Power and Light lines. Beer figures the lack of a wheeling charge would add an additional $400,000 to the associations bottom line during the first five years of the project, which sounded very good to board members. Even better, it gives the landfill an opportunity to move on to a better price from another utility in the future. Using data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Beer said the percentage increase in prices for coal and natural gas is expected to be roughly the same from 2016-21. After that, natural gas prices are predicted to rise at a faster rate, at which time it would be more advantageous to New River to connect with a utility company with a greater reliance on natural gas to generate power. The greater the avoided cost of generation, the more the landfills renewable energy will be worth. You already know you can sell that power to whoever you want, but Seminole will give you a lot more money in the early years, in particular, and then if you want to switch to somebody else, you can, he said. Board members were happy with the news and eager to get the project going. Do you think you could find somebody else and bump it up a few more months? Union Commissioner Karen Cossey teased. Engineer Joel Woolsey endorsed signing a power purchase agreement with Seminole, saying it would be a simplified process. If youre going to gain time and get into producing power faster, which is what everyone wants, the Seminole route is the way to go, he said. And theres very little risk. We know in the future how our prices are likely to continue to go up, and then you can sell your power to a different user some time in the future. ONeal said it would also be an advantage working with a local purchaser with local board members if issues do arise. He said Seminole Electric was the staff recommendation, as well, so the board voted unanimously to pursue a power purchasing agreement with the utility company. Florida Energy Partners has the contract to develop the project. Construction of the landfill gas-fueled power plant is expected to begin early next year and be completed before the end of 2015. There will be a period of testing, and the plant should be fully generating electricity and revenue by early 2016. New River Solid Waste Association is funding the construction with funds set aside for long-term care and will pay itself back with interest over time with revenue from the project while also realizing a profit. Profits from the gas-toenergy project were previously anticipated to increase annually from around $406,000 in the first year to nearly $1.6 million for the year 2029.

Reach New Customersw ith aClassified P hoto Ad Licensed Bonded Insured A ctual Size Ad Sample Continued from 1A Garry Seay, candidate for UC sheriff Provide a brief biography of yourself. I was born and raised in Worthington Springs. My father died when I was four, leaving my mom alone to raise me and my eight siblings. We had very little in the way of material things, but we were taught the value of hard work, sacrifice and grit. I was drafted into the U.S. Army when I was still a teenager. I had rarely been out of Union County at that time. I left Worthington Springs and was eventually deposited in the combat zone in Vietnam. After my tour of duty there, I served in an honor guard on funeral detail for fallen soldiers. I was honorably discharged as a sergeant and decorated war veteran. I returned to Union County and began working for the Union County Sheriffs Office. I furthered my law enforcement education and training over the course of 36-plus years to work my way up through the ranks from dispatcher to interim sheriff. My personal life revolves around my family. I am married to the love of my life, the former Brenda Harvey, and we have two adult daughters and three grandchildren. Why do you want to be sheriff? Quite simply, I want to be sheriff because the things that I care about most in this life are right here in Union County. I want our unique, small town way of life and the citizens of our community to be protected and nurtured; and I believe that I am the most capable candidate to make sure this happens. I know that my knowledge and experience in local law enforcement is unsurpassed. This is what has motivated me as I served the people of Union County for many years and it is why I would like to continue to serve for many years to come. What have you learned from voters while campaigning? Ive been from one end of the county to the other in recent months and what I hear more than anything else is that people want to be treated equally. The same laws must apply to all. I know from personal experience how it feels to be treated unfairly because of who you are or your station in life. The law should be the law regardless of race, income, social status or name. I assure you that if I am elected sheriff, there will be no prejudice of any kind allowed in the UCSO. What are some of your biggest concerns about the county and how do you propose to address them? I am greatly concerned that if there were a major crisis, which required an immediate response and a level of expertise that only comes from actual experience, Union County would be in a dire situation. The top three who are presently in command at the sheriffs office have very limited street crime experience. It also concerns me that the secondin-command lives over an hour away. In some situations, like a missing child, a shooter in a public place, etc., every second counts and there is no room for error or on-the-job training. If I am elected, my command staff would be comprised of seasoned law enforcement officers with years of street crime experience. They would also be residents of Union County. How would you characterize the relationship between the sheriffs office and each government body in Union County? The relationship between the sheriffs office and other government bodies is crucial to the well being of our residents. Youve heard the saying, It takes a village to raise a child. This concept also applies to providing services to make our county thrive. It takes communication and cooperation between all government bodies to make the best decisions for the people who have entrusted us to act in their best interests. How would you characterize the relationship between the sheriffs office and the citizens of Union County? I think its vital that the citizens know that the UCSO is there to serve and protect them, not to be feared. With this type of relationship, the sheriffs office will be more productive and provide a higher quality of service. I will always be mindful that this is a small, close-knit community. I will enforce laws consistently, fairly and professionally, but I will not allow the UCSO to publicly humiliate anyone. For instance, the UCSO Facebook Page would only be used for public service information. It will not be a public forum where people are allowed to belittle one another. This serves no good purpose. The sheriffs office must exhibit the highest standard of ethical behavior, which promotes the well being of the community. It should never advocate anything that causes strife and division among the citizens it serves. What is your personal vision for the Union County Sheriffs Office? My vision is to provide an unsurpassed quality of service to the people of Union County. I will be a working, hands-on sheriff. I will enforce all laws. Currently, a lot of focus has been placed on drug arrests. The fight against illegal drugs is nothing new; it has always been a top priority. In fact, in 2013, while I was chief deputy, Union County was in the top 25 counties in the state for drug arrests per capita according to FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) statistics. The monthly average number of drug arrests was higher in 2013, when I was in charge of investigations, than it is now. I will continue to enforce drug laws and all other laws fairly and impartially. The sheriffs office will be run with the attitude that service to others is our purpose. My vision is that all those associated with the UCSO conduct themselves in such a manner that the sheriffs office is viewed as a source of community pride. What is your personal vision for Union County? As our county grows and progresses over time, I hope that our small town values remain strong and are passed down through the generations. I hope our citizens will support local businesses so Union County can be prosperous. Im sure we will continue to be supportive of outstanding school system, which is preparing our countys future leaders. We have much to be thankful for in our small corner of the world. My vision is that we live our lives in a way that shows our gratitude and honors God by the way we treat one another. Why should people vote for you? Voters should elect me because I am the most qualified for the job. This important position should not be based on anything other than who is better prepared to maintain order, enforce laws and serve the citizens. I believe I have earned a reputation of being tough, fair, honest, available and professional over the last 36-plus years. Working in the UCSO for so long also gives me a unique perspective on ways it can be better. I plan to implement new programs including neighborhood crime watch; increased partnership with schools on current issues like cybercrimes and bullying; safety and security checks on senior citizens; increased community patrol and business security checks; and many other new and improved procedures. What sets you apart from your opponent? My experience and knowledge of the job sets me apart. I have been in the trenches, fighting street crime longer than my opponent has been alive. There is no substitute for this type of experience. I am a lawman who knows how to get the job done. I have proven that with many years of faithful and effective service to you. I promise you that if elected, I will fulfill the office of sheriff in the manner that you expect and deserve Brad Whitehead, candidate for UC sheriff Provide a brief biography of yourself. I am a fifth generation of the Whitehead family, having been raised all my life here in Union County. I grew up with a family that understood that helping our neighbor would be the core that defines us. I was taught early in my life that it is easier to kick a man when he is down, but better to pick him up and tell him everything will be OK. I attended Union County schools and played sports. This team spirit lives on with me today. After high school, I was fortunate enough to attend Lake City Community College and then Florida State University where I received my Bachelor of Science in criminology. Upon graduation, I began an intense study in a specialized law enforcement field of arson Other UC races Incumbent Allen Parrish and Steve Peacock face each other in a runoff for Union County School Board, District 1 Woody Kitler and Steve Klein seek the office of Union County Board of County Commissioners, District 2 which is being vacated by retiring Commissioner Morris Dobbs, who has served on the board since 1988.

The complex investigations into these type cases worked in many of our judicial circuits in Florida has been a cornerstone to my career preparation as sheriff. I am married to a wonderful and supportive wife, Jennifer, and am blessed with my two wonderful kids, Carter and Eva. My home has and will always remain here and I am Union County proud. Why do you want to be sheriff? Becoming sheriff is not an opportunity it is an obligation. My grandfather and his service to the people of Union County defined the word public service. My father, Floridas dean of sheriffs, drove that very principle home to me every day as I was in my youth. Whether it was working at someone elses farm, helping with a church cookout or doing my own chores, it was always about helping one another. My mother was never second in establishing character on all of us. She stood behind my father. Both my parents set the pace for public service and helping your fellow man and both didnt just talk the talk, they walked the walk. This is what a sheriff is supposed to do. Being sheriff is not glamorous. Being sheriff is about answering to and working for the people of the county no matter how big or small their problem may be; it has to be my priority. I have prepared my entire personal and professional life to do just that. I have that responsibility now and I do not take it lightly. What have you learned from voters while campaigning? I have traveled throughout our county and one thing seems to be in common with all of our neighbors: crime and drugs. It seems to affect every person no matter what their background is or where they come from. Both go hand-in-hand and they both feed off of each other. As our region changes, Union County has begun to experience more and more of the influence of drugs into our county. That directly affects crime rates as well. Voters have explained to me that the approach and techniques must align with the times. Its plain and simple. People want their families and their property protected from this increasing problem. As sheriff, I have begun a region-wide partnership with our other sheriffs, crossing boundaries and going after those who do not respect our zero-tolerance initiative that our people have asked for. What are some of your biggest concerns about the county and how do you propose to address them? Economy often drives the reduction or elevation of crime. It also drives how we focus our resources. Union County remains a place where people make the difference. Our fiscal shape in the county must align with our economic development efforts. This remains true of your sheriffs office. The office of the sheriff must pay close attention to what is happening in other areas of the county to assure that we are effective in heading off crime in economic downturns. As we move ourselves through an economic recovery nationally, so do our people here in Union. My main concern is to assure that we work together in being responsible with our resources not to just maintain, but to be even better. I remain concerned that we have to continue fighting the good fight in mentoring our young people. No matter who is sheriff 25 years from now, I want to be the sheriff who has done my part in making everyones life in Union County better, stronger and more secure. Teamwork spirit with all of our brothers and sisters will be the answer. How would you characterize the relationship between the sheriffs office and each government body in Union County? Each functional area of the government has a distinct mission and a set of goals and objectives. I believe the sheriffs office sets the pace in how we effectively handle crisis, and recovery as well as working through issues. In just the last 10 months, we have seen many emergencies that required all of the agencies to work together and come up with solutions successfully. Whether it has been a bad traffic accident that required the road department or rescue services to allocate resources, or whether it was animal control that assisted in the recovery of abused horses or even conducting budget hearings with the county commission. The common thread again was teamwork and being part of a solution, not a problem. I believe all of our constitutional officers have a basic understanding and desire to do just that. Its bred in to Union County people. We are all neighbors. How would you characterize the relationship between the sheriffs office and the citizens of Union County? As I have traveled throughout the county, I firmly believe that all of us here in Union County understand each others pressures and know in the end we can all work together. I believe there is common ground between our sheriffs office staff and the communities we serve because we are still a community that stands together in the good times and bands together in the bad. We can have differences. I firmly believe in doing a lot of listening. Things are solved better. What is your personal vision for the Union County Sheriffs Office? My personal vision is simple. Serve the people, listen to the people, keep our children safe, provide paths of opportunity to all families when they are affected by crime, make sure everyone is treated equally and fairly. Maintaining professional integrity by demonstrating it every day is a principle of this administration. Lastly, I hope in my heart that I would be known for leaving the county much better than when I came. What is your personal vision for Union County? I grew up here. Home is where my heart is. I want to work tirelessly to make sure that all of our young people can look back with pride and shout they are from Union County. I am hopeful that as the years pass, Union County remains that solid foundation of family principles and the safe haven you couldnt wait to get back home to. I am hopeful that all of as voters choose the candidates that can move the county forward while demonstrating honor and integrity and keeping the values of small town America. Why should people vote for you? I want people to vote for me because I believe that the people want a sheriff who not only has the right experience; but, I also believe the people want a sheriff who produces results in an everchanging region. The people of Union County have made it clear that our young people must be the future. As sheriff, I am prepared to accept this tremendous responsibility. I will keep this office in the esteem that the people should expect it to be. I will lead by example and stay focused on reducing drugs and working with the families who are affected by them. I have experience in the smallest and largest of crimes and have the leadership skills necessary to lead. I understand what it takes to operate in a fiscally sound way and use the money wisely that every citizen works hard for. As sheriff, our county jail system must have an administrator that provides humane treatment and understands the responsibility of the legal system. My background from state law enforcement into state corrections has given me the right experience to perform above expectations. The youth will always be my priority. Lastly, if situations become bad, I will be the sheriff that shoulders the outcome. When times are good, I will be the sheriff who makes sure the community has that credit. One thing most important to me, I will always lead from the front, never from behind in all matters for the people of Union County. I will face things head-on. What sets you apart from your opponent? The difference is that my opponent seems to think that I do not have the experience to be sheriff. My opponent fails to see the difference himself because I have not made this campaign about how many cases I have worked, how many people I know or say that he deserves the job because he worked at the sheriffs office many times throughout the years. This election is about the people. This job is an obligation not a right. I have learned that people do not care how much you think you know. People want to know you care. I care. People also want results and not just talk. I have prepared my life to serve as your sheriff. I have the experience professionally and personally. My casework with local, state and federal agencies in Florida as a law enforcement officer is a matter of record. My work with our state corrections professionals is also a matter of record. The difference is simple. I have a stellar work record as a professional. I have maintained all ethics, honor and integrity my whole career and I will continue to lead our staff and serve the people of Union County by that same example. Splash park closed till next year 10 p.m. curfew planned for Lakeside Park BY VINCENT ALEX BROWN Times Editor At the Oct. 13 meeting of the Lake Butler City Commission, the board decided to close the splash park for the winter months just like nearby municipalities do. Though City Manager Dave Mecusker originally recommended Oct. 1 to March 1 of next year, Commissioner Scott Cason remarked how hot it still was in the middle of October. Pretty hot, pretty warm today, Mr. Mecusker, Cason remarked, as others laughed in agreement; 7 degrees. Weather.com confirmed that, with a final high for the day at one degree above that. Alachua goes from Oct. 1 to mid-March. Lake City goes from the last Friday in October till the last Friday in April. After some discussion, the board settled on Nov. 1 through mid-March. Mecusker said the date is open and flexible, with the splash park most likely opening in time for spring break. The splash park has actually already been closed since the end of last month after a semi-annual inspection by the Florida Department of Health discovered that the chlorine level was not up to code. The city has since raised the level and has met other requirements from the health department, but was waiting on a state engineer out of Orlando to inspect the splash park before it could reopen. However, the engineer visited the site this past Friday, but still had not signed off on the project and the city put up a permanent sign on Tuesday declaring the splash park closed. In a related matter, at the end of the meeting Cason requested that an ordinance be prepared for a first reading at next months meeting to move the curfew at Lakeside Park from midnight to 10 p.m. Some residents have complained about problems and noise there late at night.

UCI service pins awarded BY BASIL BACTAWAR UC Extension Director/Agent The world celebrated World Food Day on Oct. 16. In addition the United Nations declared this year the International Year of Farming. One of the main reasons for this declaration is to bring attention to the problems of global hunger, and the contribution of the family farms to the well being of people in general. As the world deals with the enormous task of making improvements in food security and preserving the natural resources, there has never been a more appropriate time to celebrate the dedication and hard work of the family farmers. These farms are the worlds powerhouse to eliminate poverty and protect its natural resources. Family farms rely mainly on family labor and management that produce the food to feed billions of people. There are approximately 500 million family farms in both the developing and developed world. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimated that family farms represent up to 98 percent of all farm holding worldwide. The farming families are the backbone of agriculture, and they play a key role in creating green space as carbon sink to reverse the trend of global climate change. The family farms are the drivers of sustainable development, especially in the rural areas. The development of new markets, safety net programs and adoption of improved technology are paramount to make them economically and environmentally sustainable.

administration from Mississippi College, he was hired by the Bradford County school system and served in the following positions: Hampton Elementary principal, 1969-72; Bradford Middle principal, 1973-75; Director of operations in charge of maintenance, transportation and warehousing, 1975-90. Coaching football and working in education were big parts of his life, but so was Scouting. Register, who grew up in Hamilton County, was a member of the Boy Scouts and was the first member of Troop 98 in Jasper to ever attain the rank of Eagle Scout. In February, Register was honored at the Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council American Values Dinner. He was presented with the Scouts Distinguished Citizen Award. Register, who appeared to be truly humbled by the award, made it a point to thank all those in attendance at the dinner. Id like to say thank you for coming and being a part of giving a boost to Scouting, Register said. America needs Scouting bad, particularly in this day and time. The news of his death was obviously an emotional moment for Hurse, but the news also brought on fond memories. It was a close relationship Hurse and Register shared as they were the only coaches on the varsity staff at that time. He was my mentor, Hurse said. He was a great football coach. For more on Register, please see his obituary on page 7B.

Register still holds the highest winning percentage among BHS head coaches at 75 percent, something former BHS head coach David Hurse likes to point out. If Register had stayed at BHS and coached a lot longer than he did, Hurse said the BHS stadium would be named after Register instead of being called David Hurse Stadium. Lennard taught me just about everything I know about football, Hurse said. Register went 55-14-4 in seven seasons (1955-61), won five straight Keystone Conference championships and never had a losing season. His 1960 team was the first to go undefeated at BHS, and the Tornadoes went 21-0-1 in his final two seasons. When Register left to take the head coaching job at Bay High School, Hurse, who was an assistatnt, took over, guiding Bradford to state titles in 1965 and 1966. From 1960 through 1966 (Registers sixth season through Hurses fifth season), Bradford teams had a combined record of 64-9-3. It just kind of helped push me on, Hurse said of the success Register had. At a BHS players and coaches reunion in 2010, Register talked of how proud he was of those 1960 and 1961 teams. He said the 1960 team didnt have much size, using starting offensive tackle Cecil Leach as an example. Register said Leach weighed 157 pounds. We werent big, but we had pretty good speed, Register said. We had a great toughness about us and great heart for football. The 1961 team was special to Register for more than just its 11-0 record. All 28 players on the varsity that year played enough to earn a letter, Register said at the 2010 reunion. I was proud of that fact. The 1960 team started what would become a 25-game winning streak, which ended in 1962 under Hurse. That team also began a 32-game streak without a loss when factoring in ties. Tom Smith, who played on the 1960 team, said he and others who played under Register benefited more off the field. He was a very tough coach, Smith said. He was tough on me and all the players, but he made us all better men having played under him. Smith said Register was one of those coaches who was never satisfied with the teams performance while the game was going on. He would throw his clipboard and raise hell during halftime, even if the Tornadoes were up by three touchdowns, Smith said. Hed pitch a fit in the locker room, Smith said. Youd think we were three (touchdowns) down. However, Register was not shy about sharing his confidence in the 1960 team after an 18-7 win over Palatka in the fifth week of the season. The Tornadoes had lost 10 in a row to Palatka and 14 of 16 meetings. He told us we had the opportunity to do something very special and that was to be undefeated, Smith said. He told us that after the Palatka game. Four weeks after playing Palatka, Bradford faced a challenge from Clay, which led to an interesting late-game decision. During the 2010 BHS players and coaches reunion, Register said Clay had just scored to pull to within 25-19 late in the game. The Tornadoes had a fourth-and-2 at their own 30-yard line. Quarterback Irwin Martin tried to persuade Register to go for it on fourth down. Register said he knew that wasnt really the smart decision, but he also knew he didnt want to give the ball back to a Clay team that had momentum. Register said he consulted with Hurse, whose response was, Kick the damn ball. In the end, Register decided to go four it, calling a quarterback sneak. Before the play, he told Martin, If you dont get a first down, dont let me see you after the game. Martin did pick up the necessary yardage, and Bradford ran the clock out on the 25-19 victory. Thank God he made it, Hurse said, chuckling at the memory of that play before adding that Register was probably right in his thinking that it wouldnt have been good to punt the ball to Clay. They were on a roll, Hurse said. That season ended in memorable fashion, with Bradford defeating Baker County 28-13 in the Strawberry Bowl. Bradford and Baker played to a 13-all tie to open the season. Registers final team was the first in school history to win every game. The 1961 Tornadoes recorded another win over Palatka (27-6) and ended the season with a 21-12 Strawberry Bowl win over Bolles. Bradford had put together six straight winning seasons prior to Register taking over for J.C. Hobbs. Register kept the streak going, winning at least six games in each of his seven seasons. When Registers teams won, they usually won comfortably. The smallest average margin of victory the Tornadoes had under Register was 10 points during the 1956 season. His 1961 team won by an average margin of 25 points. Bradford went 7-3 in 1955 and 6-4-1 in 1956. A 6-4 season in 1957 was followed by seasons of 7-2-1 in 1958 and 7-1-2 in 1959. Despite getting that first win over Palatka in a long time, the closest call the 1960 Tornadoes had was a 19-18 win over Bolles. Six of Bradfords 11 opponents that year scored seven points or less as the Tornadoes outscored their opposition by a combined score of 223-95. The 1961 team was even more impressive in that regard as opponents scored an average of five points against the Tornadoes. Bradford outscored opponents 302-53. Success followed Register to Bay High School in Panama City. He led the school to two Big Five Conference championships. Register was named Coach of the Year by the Gainesville Sun three straight years and was the first Florida coach to be selected twice to coach the North-South All-Star Game. Despite moving to Panama City, Register would return to Bradford County. After earning a masters degree in education Former BHS coach Register passes away at 86 Lennard Register Making the cut


2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 The common cold and the flu share similar symptoms and its often hard to tell which of the two you may be suffering from. Both are respiratory illnesses and are caused by viruses though different ones. One indication that you may have the flu and not a cold is that the flu tends to come on quickly with much intensity and is often accompanied by two to three weeks of fatigue and weakness. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Flu season is October through May. The CDC recommends getting vaccinated in September or as early as the vaccine is available. However, if you miss that deadline it may still help to get vaccinated later in the flu season as most of the seasonal flu activity peaks in January or later. There are two types of flu vaccines: the flu shot and the nasal-spray flu vaccine. The flu shot is given with a needle and contains the inactivated virus. It is approved for use in people 6 months of age and older, including healthy people, people with chronic conditions and pregnant women. The nasal-spray contains a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses and is approved for use in healthy people 2-49 years of age who are not pregnant. If you or your family members are feeling a bit under the weather and want to know whether it is a cold or the flu, be sure to see your Provider soon. Your Provider may prescribe flu antiviral drugs if you are very sick or are considered high risk, but its very important that they be used earlywithin the first two days of symptoms. People considered at high risk for severe flu illness include pregnant women, young children, seniors, and those with certain chronic health conditions.

What was also unique was that Lazenby used the opportunity to shed light on his own condition. He does not have ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrigs Disease), but does suffer with a neurological disorder that affects muscle movement. I just looked at (the ice-bucket challenge) as an opportunity to have a bit of fun and to just raise awareness of muscle diseases in general, Lazenby said. Lazenby, a 2004 Bradford High School graduate, has dystonia, which causes involuntary contractions of muscles. It is a condition he has dealt with since he was in high school, though it wasnt until the start of this year that he learned what it was he had and how to get relief from the disorders effects. It so happened that a co-worker of Lazenbys at the University of Florida Department of Medicine has dystonia. She heard of what Lazenby was experiencing contracting muscles and pain on the right side of his body, from the base of his skull to his midbackand recommended he see Dr. Irene A. Malaty, a UF neurologist. I expected to go to that neurologist and not get answers, Lazenby said. I had pretty much given up, but she was so highly recommended. I decided it was worth a shot. Malaty thought Lazenby had dystonia symptoms and administered an injection of Botox into his neck and back. We put in the medicine and hoped for the best, Lazenby said. Within seven days, he finally had some relief from years of discomfort. My sleep improved, my mood improved and I just mentally improved, Lazenby said. I wasnt in painthe same level of pain I used to be in every day. It made a huge difference. Lazenbys first symptom of dystonia was tension in his neck. He constantly stretched his neck and would make trips to see chiropractors. Theyd find out that I was out of adjustment, but they really couldnt tell me why, he said. Chiropractors asked if he had been in an accident or suffered some sort of sports injury, but the answer to either question was no. Meanwhile, the condition got progressively worse. The tension and tight feeling spread from his neck into his right shoulder, eventually moving down the right side of his spine. Lazenby said he started really getting concerned when he was a senior in high school. Thats when he began experiencing torticollis, or a twisting of his neck. I was getting pinched nerves in my neck that would cause my head to pull toward my shoulder, Lazenby said. I wouldnt be able to release it. I literally could not pull my head straight. I would have the pinched-nerve, burning sensation running down my right arm and into my fingertips. This happened probably at least a dozen times between the ages of 18 and 19. Thats when I started getting really concerned because there was a tremendous amount of pain, and it was limiting my mobility. Visits to chiropractors and massage therapists became the norm. Chiropractors would sometimes have to work on Lazenby for one to two hours to give him any relief. Massage therapists were baffled as to why he had the constant build-up of tensiontension that affected only the right side of his body. X-rays showed nothing wrong with Lazenby. A myelogram, in which dye is injected into the spinal fluid, showed nothing wrong as well. Lazenby went to an osteopathic doctor, who suggested a look at Lazenbys Vitamin D levels through blood work. His levels were low, so he began taking prescription-strength Vitamin D. It did make a huge difference in his overall well-being, Lazenby said, but it still didnt solve his problem. Finally, the trip to Dr. Malaty, who told Lazenby that since tests showed everything in his body to be structurally fine, the problem was likely neurological. Prior to getting a Botox injection, Lazenby said he had trouble sleeping. Hes the type of person who is not comfortable sleeping on only one side, but sleeping on his right side seemed to be the only way to control the muscle contractions so he could sleep. I was not able to sleep on my left side for probably the last four or five years or so, Lazenby said. Id say a week after I got my treatment, I was able to sleep on my left side with no pain. There is currently no cure for dystonia. What Lazenby is looking at is Botox injections every three months, plus a regiment of stretching exercises. He is also still taking prescription-strength Vitamin D. Lazenby said he has lost strength in his right shoulder and right arm. Its something hes noticed when participating in one of his favorite activities. I bow hunt, he said. Ive had to turn my bow down probably at least 15 to 20 pounds since last year. Still, Lazenby said he considers himself fortunate. He has seen others with dystonia who cant walk or who cant use their arms. Lazenby can still do many of the things he enjoys. Im not the worst-case scenario by any means, he said. Lazenby, who is married to Lazenby takes ice-bucket challenge, deals with own illness Phillip Lazenby Legals See LAZENBY, 3B


Jacquez Warren for a minimal gain, Shamar Highland broke up an Oelrich pass on a fourth-down play. A 32-yard run by Franklin on Newberrys next possession resulted in a first down at the Union 27. The Panthers advanced only 4 yards, thanks to tackles by Wimpy and Treyce Hersey. Newberrys Tyler OBrian attempted a 40-yard field goal, which was short. The Tigers had 3:53 to work with before halftime. Cox promptly completed a 16-yard pass to Johnson. Two plays later, Cox hit Miller in stride for what would be a 44-yard touchdown. Miller had beaten the defensive back, who then fell down before the completion. Dairon Alexanders run on the two-point conversion put the Tigers up 217. Unions defense forced the Panthers to go three and out to open the second half. The offense then marched 72 yards for its final score. The Tigers turned to their ground game after just eight run attempts in the first half. Johnson had four carries for 54 yards on the drive, including a 35-yard run to the Newberry 5-yard line. Cox eventually scored on a 2-yard run to make the score 27-7 with 5:09 remaining in the third quarter. Johnson rushed for 54 of his team-high 59 yards in the second half. Durn had 42 yards in the half and finished with 58. A 13-yard reception by Zak Lee had the Tigers on the move on their next drive, but a fumble at midfield was recovered by the Panthers. Newberry marched inside the 20, with a 5-yard pass converting a fourth-down play and a 9-yard run by Oelrich on third down resulting in a first down at the 22. Franklin had a 5-yard carry to the 17 after an incomplete pass on first down, but the Panthers turned the ball over on downs after two straight incompletions. Newberrys defense forced Union to go three-and-out on the ensuing series, with the Panthers beginning their next series at the Union 49-yard line. A 19-yard run by Jacquez Jernigan resulted in a first down at the 30, while a pass interference penalty helped the Panthers move to the 20. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Cody Miller caught two touchdown passes, while Isaiah Johnson returned a kickoff 77 yards for another score to help the Union County High School football team defeat host Newberry for a 27-14 District 7-1A win on Oct. 17. Quarterback Caleb Cox, who completed 9-of-14 passes for 171 yards, ran for a 2-yard score as the Tigers (4-2) evened their district record at 1-1. It was a huge win in staying in the hunt for a playoff berth considering Newberry (4-4) brought a 2-0 district record into the game. Like I told the kids before the game, were under the gun, Union head coach Ronny Pruitt said. If (Newberry) wouldve won, they were in (the playoffs). Weve got to win every week. The teams were pretty much even in terms of some of the final numbers, such as time of possession, first downs and total yards, but the Union defense prevented the Panthers from scoring on four trips inside the 40-yard line. Two of those Newberry drives penetrated the 30-yard line, with one even getting inside the 20. It was a noteworthy performance from a unit that was missing linebacker Casey Driggers, who is out with a neck injury. We had to put some new kids in new positions, Pruitt said, adding, The defense really bowed up when it needed to. That says a whole lot about the character of the kids. The Tigers scored on the games opening drive, with three pass completions and a 13-yard run by Antwan Durn helping Union move from its 36 to the Newberry 27. After a 2-yard loss, Cox found Miller standing wide open at the 5-yard line. Miller made the catch and walked into the end zone, with Tyler McDavid adding the PAT at the 8:05 mark. Newberry answered late in the quarter. A 19-yard punt return by Jason Franklin set the Panthers up at midfield. Franklin had a 5-yard run on first down, but was dropped for a 2-yard loss by Clay Halle and Khris Wimpy. On third down, Tanner Fowler took a short pass from Nick Oelrich and turned it into a 47-yard touchdown, with the successful PAT tying the score with 1:25 to play in the first quarter. The home teams excitement didnt last long as Johnson fielded the ensuing kickoff at his own 23-yard line and broke free down the Newberry sideline for a touchdown. McDavids PAT was blocked, but the Tigers had a lead they would never relinquish. That was big for us at that time, Pruitt said of Johnsons return. Newberry threatened to score twice before the Tigers next score. An 11-yard run by Franklin gave the Panthers a first down at the Union 28.

Dear Editor: As you are probably aware from all the posters, billboards and commercials bombarding us daily, there is an election looming. And while most of us are consumed with who we will choose for governor (The Liar, The Criminal or the Computer Geek), few know or understand on of the most important issues on the ballot for November. Judging by its name, Amendment 1, known as the Water and Land Legacy Amendment, seems harmless enough. It also look generally innocuous when reading the summary of the amendment printed on the sample ballots and in press releases. Heres the summary of the amendment as it appears on their website Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites, by dedicating 33% of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years. Who would dare oppose clean water, restoring the Everglades and conserving sensitive environmental areas, unless you are some heartless glutton, right? Most folks have no idea where this amendment is coming from or what it means. Perhaps it would be best if you knew the history behind it and what it seeks to amend. In 2000, the Florida Preservation 2000 Act (now called Florida Forever.) This law established a program by which the Florida Department of Environmental Protection could implement and oversee conservation land purchases to protect and restore environmentally sensitive lands and wetlands. Funding was made possible by using monies collected from documentary stamps (doc stamps) a tax of $0.70 per $100.00 on the sale of real properties like homes and land, and $0.35 for every $100.00 on documents that are executed in the state like deeds, liens, titles, etc. Doc Stamp funds are stored in the states General Revenue Fund, from which a host of different public projects and expenditures are funded. Not only is Florida Forever funded, but so are: the Coastal Lands Acquisition and Debt Service, the Water Management Lands Trust Fund, Conservation and Recreation Lands (CARL) Trust Fund, State Game Trust Fund, Invasive Plant Control Trust Fund, State Lake Restoration Trust Fund, Water Quality Assurance Trust Fund, State Transportation Trust Fund, various community affairs grants, two state housing trust funds and two local government housing trust funds, not to mention some other public benefits programs. Florida Forever funding accounted for almost 35% of the total doc stamp revenues spent annually. By statute; the Florida Forever Act, took a maximum of $300 million of the doc stamp revenues annually from year 2000 through year 2008. In 2008, Florida Forever was reauthorized by the states legislature to continue funding up to $300 million per year for an additional 10 years. From 2008 through 2014, Florida Forever Funding continued, but not at the maximum of $300 million per year. Due to the difficult economic downturn felt all over the country as a result of the bursting housing bubble and the high rates of unemployment, the Florida Legislature voted to reduce the budget of Florida Forever and appropriated only enough funding to pay the debt service on existing purchases and projects. At the same time, the Governor asked all state agencies who purchased lands with Florida Forever Funds to inventory their lands and look for any parcels that could be declared surplus and sold. By law, any lands surplussed that were originally purchased with Florida Forever funds would have the revenues form those surplus sales returned back to the program. In other words, if they sold a piece of land purchased with Florida Forever funds, the money form the sale of that land would have to go back into the program. With the exception of fiscal year 2005-06 when doc stamp revenues hit an all time high of $4.4 billion, our state has seen a steady doc stamp revenues annually from $1.1 billion in 2006 to about $1.8 billion in 2014. From 2000 to 2010, Florida Forever dedicated $300 million of the total documentary stamp funds annually. Thats a total of $2.89 billion dollars in 10 years that helped purchase, protect and maintain more than 2.5 million acres in our state. Now that you know where we came from, lets look at what this new amendment seeks to accomplish. First of all, the Water and Land Legacy Act seeks to remove the maximum funding of $300 million per year and replace it with a MINIMUM 33% of the documentary stamp revenues annually. Secondly, those funds allocated of the Water and Land Legacy CAN NOT BE CO-MINGLED. That means that once its allocated for the program (33% of the doc stamp revenues by law) they can not take any portion of those funds and put them back into other programs, no matter how essential they are to maintaining the public welfare. THAT, my friends, is fiscally irresponsible. Remember all those other programs I listed earlier like community affairs grants, housing funds and transportation funds? Well those essential programs would take a back seat to this new law. The supporters of the bill will tell you there is no increase in taxes to you, but you and I both know that when funding for road widening or public housing falls short, its going to have to come from somewhere, If there is no money in the general fund they can shift back into these services, there is bound to be a new tax somewhere to pay for it. Of course, the alternative is to de-fund some other service without a law protecting its funding. The usual candidates are programs like education and law enforcement. But theres another big problem with this amendment no one is talking aboutespecially not the supporters of the bill. Originally, Florida Forever stated in F.S. 259.105 (6)(a), All lands acquired pursuant to this section shall be managed for multiple-use purposes, where compatible with the resource values of and management objectives for such lands. As used in this section, multiple-use includes, but is not limited to, outdoor recreational activities. There is no such similar language in this proposed amendment. In fact, it does not even specify that the monies be used for land purchase or management. It allows for outdoor recreation lands, including recreational trails, parks, and 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. Now, I dont know about you, but I read that to mean some patch of grass in the middle of a city could be purchased with our tax dollars because some group decided it was historically or environmentally important. Whats worse, it would allow the building of things like boardwalks, paved trails and parking lots on our wild lands. And Ill lay you a dollar to a doughnut that supporters of this amendment (like the Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, Audubon Society and Defenders of Wildlife) would love nothing more than to use doc stamp money to build classrooms on these lands where they can be free to teach our kids about the evils of hunting. Its already happened on the Circle B Bar Ranch in Polk County, where waterfowl hunting was taken from us and a classroom manned by Sierra Club and Audubon volunteers pushes thousands of kids through every year, teaching them about preservation with a strong antihunting undertone. In my opinion, Amendment 1 is a steppingstone to more restriction and more loss of available recreational lands for us to hunt on. Were already seeing less and less quality public hunting opportunities as we fight for quota permits every year. With the vagueness of this amendment, it provides the latitude necessary to remove hunting and consumptive recreation from our public lands. Of course, if you ask any Amendment 1 proponent, they will deny it. For the record, you should know that the drafters of this amendment were members of the Florida Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Defenders of Wildlife, Audubon, Sierra Club and several other organizations that have fought very hard to keep hunters and hunting out of many of the newly-acquired public lands in Florida. When this amendment first reared its ugly head, it was brought to leaders of hunting community who were asked to support it. I, and others immediately noticed the vague wording and significant increases in spending at a time when Floridians are struggling financially. We suggested a more responsible approach with a graduated increase in minimum funding over the next 10 years so that as tax revenues increase, so too would Florida Forever fundingbut not to the detriment of other programs or services that might be considered essential. Florida Forever has worked and is still in place. Its been extended through 2020 by the Florida Legislature. An up to 25% increase in funding each year (not to exceed 30%) and no less than 10% of the annual doc stamp sales would adequately fund Florida Forever and keep it 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 Paid political advertisement paid for by the Bradford County Republican Executive Committee P.O.

Our state park system has received the National Gold What you should know about Amendment 1 Vote for Amendment 1, quality of life Metal Award three times, more than any other state. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, 25,575,794 people visited our parks. Many were tourists, spending their money here and going back home. Our lakes, rivers, springs, and beaches are some of our most precious assets, and over the years we have added more of them to our state park system. However, if we want to continue to enjoy our states beauty, attract visitors, and preserve these treasures for our grandchildren, we must be cautious. How long have you lived in Florida? Have you noticed that our waterways just arent what they were when you were younger? This is the result of decades of population growth and neglect. We cant stop population growth, but there are other things we can do to maintain our quality of life. One is to vote Yes for Amendment #1, the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment. This amendment was initiated through a citizen petition supported by more than 50 Florida organizations. Over 700,000 signatures were obtained statewide to get it on the ballot. This action was necessary due to the failure of our state government to do all they could to protect our fragile environment. During recent years, money earmarked for protecting sensitive public land has been diverted to other uses. We need to put it back where it belongs. There are several objections to Amendment #1, but they dont hold water. It will not cause an increase in taxes. A small amount of an existing document stamp will go towards this purpose. This money will not rob other important areas of their funding. Join the 700,000 of us who have already supported this initiative, and when Amendment #1 passes, we will all be winners. Pat Caren, President Alligator Creek Garden Club, Starke moving forward. But Amendment 1 supporters wanted more, and they werent willing to compromise. In fact, when we asked to sit down and work out a better plan, we were told the amendment had already been submitted and they were moving forward with or without the support of the hunting community. The framers of this amendment lied to us and were simply positioning themselves to either get our help or make us look like the bad guys. What this really boils down to is these ultra-green groups want more money to spend on projects as they see fit. But its not about conservation. Its about preservation. Its about locking up as much land as possible as quickly as possible and making it all bicycle, equestrian and kayak friendly. Theyre not interested in any thing less than the complete removal of consumptive recreational use (like hunting) because to them we are nothing more than rapists of the land. They view hunters as the enemydrunken buffoons with a lust for blood out to annihilate every animal from the face of the earth, pollute the land and water and leave destruction in our wake. Its up to you to make sure that we dont give them the means to end legal hunting on lands purchased with public funds. I urge each of you to spread to work about Amendment 1. Let your non-hunting friends and family know just how dangerous this bill is to our hunting heritage. By Chuck Echenique Woods N Water Dear Editor: As election day comes, there is an issue that I want to make sure people know my position on and that is Amendment 2 (the supposed Medical Marijuana amendment). During the 2014 session the Florida Legislature passed a bill that legalized the use of Medical Marijuana, yes we already have in Florida Statute, legal Medical Marijuana and I have supported that. Sadly it has caused some confusion as to my views on the Amendment 2 issue up for a vote this year. This amendment will basically legalize recreational use of marijuana for everyone and that includes minors who arent even old enough to buy cigarettes. So let me make this very clear, I support real medical marijuana like the legislature passed and I do not support amendment 2 that is a back door way to legalize recreational marijuana. Now my reasons for standing against amendment 2 are simple. The amendment talks about it being for people with a debilitating ailment, the definition of a debilitating ailment can mean a lot. As a veteran I have been diagnosed with medical issues (jumping out of planes is fun but it hurts) and there are days when the pain can literally keep me from having full range of motion and / or causes enough pain that I have to take some kind of medicine. I asked Dr. friends of mine and if you claim to have pain (something that cannot Amendment 2: back door to legalizing recreational use of marijuana See LETTER, 5B

The answer is yes, and all someone has to do is be able to describe how it is debilitating (without evidence). Please also note that the Florida Medical Association is against this amendment. This is an obvious loop hole that unscrupulous people will take advantage of to gain access. Next if a minor goes to a Dr. for any reason that Dr. doesnt have to have an adults permission to treat and prescribe medicine, that minor (possibly your child) could then complain about health issues (claim them as debilitating) and be recommended marijuana and there is nothing you the parent could do about it! Is that really what we want our state constitution to stand for? Instead of freedom and rights, its as a loop hole for people to gain access to a drug. Yet another issue I have is the very vague term of caregiver, this is simply someone over the age of 21, could be a convicted felon and doesnt need any medical training. Today we call someone like that who hands out drugs a drug dealer, if amendment 2 passes they will have a more official title, caregiver! Lastly, what is medical marijuana? In the legislation that we passed that created real medical marijuana, we put limits on the amount of THC (the part that gets people high) and it is restricted to the point of not enough to become intoxicated and that it has enough for it to function as a medicine. The current amendment 2 would allow for any and all strengths and would not require a purity and you could find additives that could make it even worse and because it is a Constitutional amendment we cant legislate it. People have said tax it, but we dont tax medicine in Florida and so would get no revenue ($0) from the sale of it. In the end let me be very clear. I am absolutely in support of what we have already passed into law and is referred to as real medical marijuana! I am not a supporter in any way shape or form of this sham that is amendment 2 and being called medical marijuana, it is dangerous, it is not about medicine and it will show to have long term negative effects on our already struggling society.

service errors before Dixie committed two straight attack errors with Andrews serving, giving the Tigers the 27-25 win. The Tigers trailed by as many as eight points in the second set, but fought back to pull to within 21-18. A service ace by Madelyn Kish pulled Union to within 22-21, but an attack error and later a double hit gave Dixie the winning points. Union built a 12-4 lead in the third set and added five straight points with Devin Lewis serving to go up 17-4. Andrews scored a couple of points during that span with a tip and a kill, while Lewis recorded an ace. Lilly Combs and Tristyn Southerland recorded consecutive kills off of Madison Adams assists to later go up 247. A Dixie service error gave the Tigers the eventual 25-9 win. The fourth set was a 19-19 affair before the Bears reeled off six straight points to win 25-19. Union was unable to score a single point while serving in the tiebreaker. Two kills by Southerland and one each by Andrews and Combs helped the Tigers stay close before Dixie sealed the deal with a tip that just fell over the net and found a spot between the Union defense for the Bears 15-10 win. DISTRICT Continued from 5B Unions James Ford had a sack for a 4-yard loss on a third-down play, but Oelrich threw an 18yard touchdown pass to Fowler on fourth-and-8 with 2:41 left in the game. The PAT made the score 27-14. The Panthers unsuccessfully attempted an onside kick. Union was able to run out the clock, with four straight runs by Durn moving the Tigers from the Newberry 39 to the 18. After an 8-yard run by Alexander, Cox took a knee to end the game. Union faces another district opponent this Friday, Oct. 24, when it hosts Chiefland at 7:30 p.m. Chiefland (4-4) is 1-1 in the district after its 34-24 win over Williston on Oct. 17. The Indians district loss came against Newberry by a 17-13 score. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Keystone Heights recovered two onside kicks and scored 21 points in the final one-and-ahalf minutes of the game, but the comeback fell short, leaving the Indians with a 48-42 District 4-4A loss to the Villages Charter School on homecoming on Oct. 17. Keystone (0-6, 0-2) fell behind 13-0 in the first quarter, but then kept pace with the visitors, trailing by the same 13-point deficit at halftime, with a 27-14 score. Keystones first touchdown came on a 40-yard run by Justin Raysin with 7:54 left in the half. Later in the second quarter, Anton Noble broke a 57-yard run from the Keystone 35 to the Villages 8. Two plays later, Noble hit pay dirt with a 1-yard run with 2:30 left in the half. After intermission, the Buffalo (5-2, 2-1) extended their lead to 48-21, mostly on the legs of running back Jabari Jiles. The 5-9, 190-pound sophomore rushed for 334 yards on 25 carries and scored six of the Villages seven touchdowns. Poor tackling, which plagued the Indians earlier in the season, but appeared to be remedied two weeks ago, in Keystones 7-0 loss to Eustis, re-emerged as the Achilles heel of the Indian defense. We had guys in position, Keystone head coach Chuck Dickinson said of his squads efforts to stop Jiles. We just missed the guy. With 6:03 remaining in the third quarter, the Villages scored its final touchdown. The Indian defense held the Buffalo scoreless for the remainder of the game. Keystone defenders also stopped a midthird quarter drive, which the visitors started on their own 22 and ended on the Keystone 4. After allowing a Buffalo first down on its own five, the Indian defense stiffened and denied the Villages the end zone on four consecutive snaps. On the Villages next possession, the visitors handed the ball to a ninth-grade running back on four consecutive plays and netted 2 yards. Keystone took over on downs with 3:43 left in the game, trailing 48-21 from its own 44. After a 6-yard run by Noble, who rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries, quarterback Wyatt Harvin completed a pair of passes to Earl Hall totaling 16 yards and scrambled for an additional 10, taking the ball to the Villages 24. From there, Harvin found a wide-open Noble in the end zone. J.J. Schofield tacked on the extra point, and the Indians closed the gap to 48-28 with 1:26 left in the game. Schofield then punched an onside kick toward the Villages bench. The ball bounded end over end close to the ground toward an awaiting Villages player, who appeared ready to smother the ball after scooping it off the ground. Just before reaching the white jersey, the ball popped high in the air over the head of the awaiting player and landed behind him. Players from both teams dove for the ball, which a Keystone player recovered. Harvin and company went back to work, taking over on the Villages 35 with 1:19 left in the game. After an incomplete pass and a Harvin scramble for no gain, the Keystone signal caller took a deep drop on third-and-10 and lofted a screen pass to Noble. The senior running back found nothing but five blue jerseys between him and the goal posts and sprinted into the end zone untouched. Schofield added the extra point. The Indian bench and crowd, electrified by the play, viewed a scoreboard showing 48.35 seconds left in the game and a 48-35 Villages lead. Schofield then kicked another high bouncer in the direction of the Buffalo bench, with the ball again popping up in the air on the second or third bounce over the outstretched arms of a waiting Villages player. After a scramble for the loose ball in front of the Villages coaches, an official signaled a Keystone possession. The Indian offense lined up once again on the Villages 35. Harvin took the snap from under center and dropped back to pass. He then scrambled to his right, searching for an open receiver. As two Buffalo linemen closed in on the quarterback, Dickinson shouted a command from the sideline: Throw it. Harvin got off a wobbly line drive just as the Villages defenders reached him. As the ball sailed toward Rian Prieto, who was open at the 5-yard line near the right sideline, Dickinson barked out a second directive: Catch it. The Indian receiver complied, snaring the pass on the 3 with a Buffalo defender on his back. Prieto rotated toward the sideline and fought for the final 3 yards, falling into the end zone and out of bounds. The line judge rushed toward Prieto, and after glaring at the field for a second, raised both arms, signaling a touchdown. After the extra point, Keystone had closed the gap to 48-42 with 16.7 seconds left. The Indian kickoff team set up for a third onside kick, but Villages coaches and players were now accustomed to Schofields high bouncer. They realized that the ball, after leaving the kickers foot and scorching the turf for the first 8 or 9 yards, would suddenly launch vertically. Instead of dropping down to scoop up the grounder, players needed to anticipate the pop-up. After Schofield punched the ball for the third onside kick, the awaiting Villages player at first took a step toward the oncoming ball, then stopped, waited for the bounce, took a half step back and then caught the ball as it descended. The Villages ran one play before time expired. Im proud of the kids, Dickinson said. We got two onside kicks and got it into the end zone. You get one more, and who knows? Youve got 12, 13 seconds left, you have a chance, maybe. The coach also cited continued improvement on offense. I thought we threw the ball better tonight, especially there at the end, he said. The kids caught the ball well. We did some of the things we have been trying to do all year. Keystone travels to play district opponent Interlachen on Friday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m. The Rams (0-8) fell to 0-2 in the district after a 41-6 loss to Umatilla on Oct. 17. 8B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 & Our NEW Enhanced Website!! & Our NEW Enhanced Website!!
