Pd. for and app. by Danny Riddick for Bradford County Commissioner District 4 Health ranks Union counties lowest in Inmate populations factor in study BY TRACY LEE TATE Telegraph-Times-Monitor Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute recently completed their annual study of health outcomes and health factors. For each county in the U.S., the study measures factors that affect health and well-being like tobacco use, diet and exercise, alcohol and drug use and sexual activity. The study also assesses the availability and quality of health care in each county and considers social and economic factors, as well as the physical environment of each jurisdiction. The study derives health outcomes by measuring years of life lost before age 75. It also assesses overall quality of life by counting self-reported unhealthy days. The study also reports the percentage of babies born at a low birth weight. The study ranks Clay County 13 th of the 67 Florida counties in health outcomes, while ranking Bradford County 62 nd and Union County 67 th. Both Union and Bradford countys inmate population is included in the report. As for length of life, the study ranked Clay County at 18, Bradford at 65 and Union at 67. All three counties show a higher number of premature deaths than the state average and somewhat higher self-reported sick days. Low birthweight babies account for 11 percent of the births in Bradford County, 10 percent of the births in Union County and only 8 percent of the births in Clay County. In the area of health behaviors, the study reports that 18 percent of the adult population of Clay County smoke, compared to 22 percent for Bradford and 25 percent for Union. Adult obesity in Clay County is also the lowest of the three at 29 percent, with 36 percent reported for Bradford and 38 percent reported for Union. Clay County scores the highest for excessive alcohol consumption at 22 percent, with Bradford at 17 percent and Union at 16 percent. There seems to be little correlation between the above impaired driving deaths, however, with Clay County ranked 41 st Union 45 st and Bradford at 28 th in the state. Among the three counties, the availability of primary care physicians is much higher in Clay: one for every 1,760 persons. In Bradford availability is lower, at one physician for every 2,690 residents and according to the study, primary physician availability in Union County is less than one-half of that in Clay, with one physician for every 3,810 residents. However, all three counties rank lower than the state average of one physician for every 1,380 residents. The availability of dentists and mental health providers are also low for the local counties, in the area for the health care professionals, followed by Union and then Bradford. All three counties ranked better than the state average on unemployment. The state rate was 4.9 percent, Bradfords: 4.3 percent, Union: 4.4 percent and Clay: 4.5 percent. Only Clay County scored lower than the state on the percentage of children in poverty, with the state at 21 percent and Clay County at 14 percent. Bradford County showed 27 percent of children living in poverty, with Union close behind at 26 percent. Clay County also scored below the state percentage of children living in single-parent homes. The state rate was 38 percent, Clays was 29 percent and both Bradford and Union counties rate were at 40 percent. The study makes a number of suggestions of how community leaders may improve health outcomes for their residents.

DeSue, who was born Oct. 31, 1931, grew up in Starke with his mother, Linnie DeSue, and served in either the Marines or the Army. As for his decision to join the Marines in the early 1950s, DeSue, in a March 29 Telegraph story, said, If you werent going to school, you were going to work. I was at that age that I could go into the military. DeSue returned to Starke after his service. He had a family, marrying Jarutha, who still lives in Starke, and having four children: sons Glen and Guy (now deceased) and daughters Carol and Sandra. Glen, who starred in athletics at Bradford High School and goes by the nickname Beaver, still lives in Starke. Carol lives in Georgia, while Sandra lives in Orlando. The marriage didnt last. After a divorce, DeSue went to traveling. Hed spend a month or like it there and then move on to somewhere else. He traveled throughout Florida and then gradually made his way up north, stopping in Poughkeepsie, New York. DeSue worked in a variety of jobs, from painting houses to driving a bus. It was in New York where DeSue met and married Lamoree. At the age of 62, DeSue decided he wanted to move back to Starke to be closer to his children. He got a job driving a bus upon his return, which he did until the age of 75. He still keeps buys as he has a regular customers. DESUE The following is an announcement of intention to I am Tom Wells. I am running for U.S. Congress in FL CD3 the seat currently held by Dr. Ted Yoho. I am by education a theoretical physicist earning my B.S. at CalTech, my PhD at U. of Maryland. I worked 15 years at GaTech helping to develop the groundwork for Stealth technology required by the Department of Defense. After doing the electromagnetic (EM) engineering at a couple of small companies, I established my own company in 2005 giving me the opportunity consult in new developments in EM measurement and design. My whole career has been an exercise in identifying problems and then solving them. On the home front I was raising four incredible children. And I was seeing with dismay that despite their dedication, intelligence, and hard work; that despite the advantages of a middle class upbringing; that their opportunities fell far short of what I enjoyed in my youth. That their college jobs effectively paid less than half what I had made while their tuition was several times greater. I came to the conclusion that these problems, and the far graver problems of endless war, inadequate health care, and failure to address the very real threat of climate apocalypse, all came down to the fact that our representatives were passing laws that enriched corporations while impoverishing working people. Passing laws that in numerous cases simply gave our tax money to corporations while getting nothing in return. I am Tom Wells. I am running as a Democrat, but one who representatives of both parties have for far too long have acted, passed laws, that favor their corporate donor-owners at the expense of the rest of us. I am a proponent of Fair Market Capitalism: Corporations competing for our money with their goods and services. When Congress to pass laws that misappropriate our tax dollars, that is not Capitalism. That is a crime against our children and ourselves. The key to the power that lobbyists is that they can now fund campaigns. Few of our representatives see any way to get re-elected, or elected in the funds. When I was growing up aerospace history BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer Bob Oehl has had a lot on his plate, from trying to successfully complete the acquisition of a NASA space shuttle external fuel tank to preparing to pilot a World War II-era C-47 to Normandy. Therefore, its understandable that its been a while since the Wings of Dreams executive director was a guest speaker at a Kiwanis Club of Starke meeting. Frankly, thats one reason I havent been here in I dont know 10 years, said Oehl, who spoke at the clubs April 24 meeting. Were busy. Oehl talked about how Wings of Dreams, an aviation museum located at the Keystone Heights Airpark, is preserving history. Part of that history relates to Americas space program as Wings of Dreams has rescued items from NASA that Oehl said wouldve been cut up for scrap and destroyed. At this point, weve saved $500 million of NASA hardware and brought it here, Oehl said. For example, Oehl noted that April 24 was the anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope. Wings of Dreams has a mock-up of the Hubble that astronauts used in training for repair missions. Then there is the 154-foot long, 75,000-pound object that currently sits in Green Cove Springs until the logistics of completing its journey from Kennedy Space Center to Wings of Dreams are worked out. As some of you may recall, we rescued, among other things, the only surviving ET the massive external fuel tank to the space shuttle, Oehl said. This does not make it back from space. It burns up in the atmosphere. This is the only one. The move of the tank, up the Intracoastal Waterway, began in 2013, but such things as pavement of overhead obstacles have had to be done as Wings of Dreams volunteers are working to meet Department of Transportation concerns about the trip the tank 100. You can have a telephone pole that may have six lines coming across it, Oehl said. It could be cable TV. It could be telephone. It could be power. Any number of things that from one pole to the next pole may change ownership. The coordination of who owns what and where, while were moving this monster, is enormous. Its never been done before. This is the largest piece of aerospace hardware moved over land since Howard Hughes moved the Spruce Goose in 1947. Growing up in Any child that grew up in the U.S. in the 1960s undoubtedly between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, but Oehl had an up close and personal view of the event. His father, Don, was a Grumman engineer who worked at NASA. I was in Mission Control during many of the launches, right there behind the glass, watching my dad standing there with the lunar director and everybody else Oehl said. He was chief of quality control for the lunar module program. In fact, the elder Oehl helped assemble the team that worked out the problem of how to save the Apollo 13 astronauts. When that day happened, I remember Dad didnt come home, Oehl said. In fact, for three days he didnt come home. They stayed there, and they worked on putting parts and pieces together that would help Oehl was asked about the future of Americas space are happening in regard to the private industry. As an example, he cited the Elon Musks SpaceX rockets that can land on the same pad they took off from after dropping off payloads in space. Oehl asked, Who wouldve even thought that was possible a year or two ago? As for NASA, Oehl said, When a White House administration pretty much canceled NASAs budget and turned it into social programs, NASA was dying. They didnt have direction. They also didnt have leadership because there were people appointed to leadership that didnt really have vision. That may be sad for someone side is Wings of Dreams has The blessing of that is we were able to rescue a lot of things (from NASA), he said. The move of the space shuttle fuel tank isnt the only thing of note occurring in regard to Wings of Dreams. Oehl said a Douglas C-47 Skytrain the museum acquired via donation from Lee County mosquito control, has been restored to the point where its now operational. It has Zephyrhills, where it is currently getting fully restored. World War II, most of these aircraft were parked out in the desert and then cut up for scrap, Oehl said. They were pots and pans. There arent a whole lot of them around. A year from now, Oehl will part of a program involving National Geographic and the British Broadcasting Corporation to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Two plane to Berlin to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift. Then on to Italy where (the plane) will winter because we cant come back across the North Atlantic in winter, Oehl said. Oehl talked of another aircraft in Wings of Dreams possession a Cessna O-2 Skymaster. The O-2 was used in Vietnam as a forward air control aircraft and also was a PSYOPS psychological warfare aircraft, Oehl said. Ours in particular is an O-2B. There were only 31 of them built. Oehl showed a photo of the ago and explained it is currently being restored and will be part of a Wings of Dreams partnership with Veterans Airlift Command, which transports combat Wings of Dreams Executive Director Bob Oehl displays a chart detailing the history of the Douglas C-47 Skytrain Normandy next year as part of an event commemorating the anniversary of D-Day. One of the planes Wings of Dreams has acquired and in the process of restoring is this Cessna O-2B Skymaster.

Key elements are: Corruption: So long as corporations are funding our elections, any political victories are temporary. We must pass effective public funding of Straight Arrow candidates. This will break the chains of corporate democracy. Health care is a human right: Single payer health care out, with no co-pays and no deductibles. With coverage for dental, vision, hearing and mental health. Cost: All this costs $1 trillion per year LESS than we pay for health care now. That trillion dollars is given to corporations by acts of Congress. That is the cost of corruption, in just the health care sector, taken by the donor-owners of our Congress. National defense and veterans: We must fully fund the VA. Stop offering our veterans choices that they dont want. We will enhance national security by banning military contractors operate outside the law and their which requires endless war.

Its a way to kind of give back and help out, Oehl said. As a multiple-year combat veteran myself, this is a very important mission that needs to be done. When asked how parts are come by to keep such vintage aircraft up and running, Oehl said, Ive got several semis full of parts that weve saved, some of them still in the cosmoline not overhauled, but new old stock. Ive rescued about 150,000 pounds of parts to keep people from all over coming here to pick through what we have. In regard to the passion he and others have for working on old planes, Oehl said, There are up overhauling radial engines. Besides displaying collections of vintage aircraft and space program artifacts, Wings of Dreams also hosts major air shows. Weve had the military come in with the (Douglas) A-3 (Skywarrior) demonstration team, Oehl said. That wasnt Jacksonville that did that. It was Wings of Dreams that did that. The museum also hosts astronomy programs featuring University of Florida professor to look through giant telescopes. Hes bringing in galaxies that are 31 million light years away, Oehl said. Just wrap your head around that. Wings of Dreams offers educational programs for children and once even had a visit from a group from Ohio. Thousands of kids from all over come here, Oehl said.

Hardee receives this years Betty Warren Scholarship BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer Union County High School student Macey Hardee, who is dual-enrolled at Santa Fe College, now knows what she wants to be when she grows up, and the Col. Samuel Elbert Chapter of the National Society Daughters help her accomplish it, awarding her with its annual Betty Eileen Warren Memorial Scholarship. Hardee, who plans to become a nurse, was presented with the $1,500-per-semester scholarship by Warren family representatives Jeff Warren (Bettys son), married to Bettys son John, now deceased) and Whitney Warren Tansill (Lynda and Johns daughter) at the Col. Samuel Elbert Chapters May 7 meeting. This scholarship is something my family cherishes because over the years, with (the Col. Samuel Elbert Chapters) help, we have helped a lot of young people with their education, Jeff Warren said. That is something that meant a lot to my mother and our entire family. Betty Hodges, who is the Col. Samuel Elbert Chapter treasurer, told Hardee, That scholarship is renewable in December. If you maintain your grade-point average, please, please take advantage of that and ask for more money. Hardee laughed and said, Ill probably be doing that. Hodges said chapter members had a tough choice deciding between Hardee and one other applicant for its scholarship. What set Hardees application apart was a written submission detailing what she wanted to do with her life. Hodges shared what Hardee had written, which began, As a child, you often hear the question, What do you want to be when you grow up? Immediately, ones imagination would run wild. One day, my dream would be to dominate as a professional ice skater. The next day, I would dream of intimate encounters with wild animals as an animal trainer at Sea World. Hardee wrote that the question of what she wanted to do when she grew up didnt hold extreme value for her at a younger age as she thought she had plenty of time to make her decision. Now, I am grown up, and the present-day question of what I want to do for the rest of my life is constantly stressful, Hardee wrote as part of her scholarship application. That $1 million question engulfs my every thought as graduation nears and is persistent with its nagging. Yet if I drown out all the noise in my head, there is one thing I have known all along: I want to leave my mark on this world. My footprints may not lead to fame or fortune, recognition or appreciation, but I remain steadfast in my desire to only follow a path that leads to impacting others in a positive light. That path brought recognition of the value I held to making a different to those around me, which in turn directed Hardee, whose sister Taylor received the Betty Warren Scholarship in 2013, explained to the Col. Samuel Elbert Chapter members and Warren family members that after she completes her associate in science degree at Santa Fe, she wants to enroll in the schools nursing program. She plans to graduate as a registered nurse and work in anesthesiology with the end goal of becoming a nurse anesthetist. Helping people is what I want to do, said Hardee, who hopes to work in a childrens hospital or an outpatient clinic. I know I can do that by being a nurse. Betty Eileen Warren was a longtime resident of Starke, devoted to many community activities and serving in leadership roles within First Baptist Church, the Shands auxiliary and the Daughters of Betty was born in 1924 in rural West Virginia, where she was one of six girls, Hodges said. Growing up during the Depression, there was little opportunity or encouragement to achieve an advanced education. Macey Hardee is this years recipient of the Col.

Letter to the Editor: The Chairman of the Florida Constitution Revision Commissions (CRC) Style and Drafting Committee, Brecht Heuchan, defended grouping several issues into one amendment, saying it was done by past commissions. He stated the ballot language is clear and easily understood, that voters are exceedingly smart and will decide how they want Florida in the future. He said grouping issues will limit the length of the ballot, because long ballots create a disincentive to voting. In my view, the voters are smart, just as Heuchan has stated, and the voters would take the time to vote on each, independent issue. The CRC has left us to vote on eight amendments. Six of the amendments address two to four issues each, most not related to each other, forcing the voter to approve three things they distain to get one issue they desire.

Jack Schenk Dear Editor: There was a time when I was proud of my small town and its accomplishments. But lately there hasnt been much to be proud of. Years ago some people got together and made some changes, some drastic changes. Our downtown was going downhill at tremendous speed and no one was trying to stop it. Then some people who actually cared about our city got together and our city began a positive journey. Empty buildings started inmate crews came in and started cleaning our streets. We were looking good. What happened? No one at the city knows whats going on or really seems to care. Wait, let me correct myself on that. Our code enforcement who realizes we have abandoned buildings and trashlittered yards. But she cant do anything about it. Signed complaints, but one person can only do so much. I was under the impression that place to promote and support business in our city. There again I was wrong. I have had a small business on the outskirts of our city for 8 months. I have had 2 Two, that is pathetic. I asked one commissioner about it he said it wasnt his thing. How do you know if its not your thing if you have never been in there? My next answer was this commissioner didnt have time. Excuse me isnt that what you were voted in for, to have time for the citizens. My next thing is my signs. Due to the sign ordinance I am not allowed permanent signs. I would straighten them every day if I could but due to the rough terrain, and my balance, that is impossible for me to do. So my solution to the problem of the city commissioner who requested that they be removed when you are out for your morning walk why not straighten them. It would make the city look better, help me out, and it might make you feel better. We are all in this together to make Starke a better place starting at the top. Carolyn Crews Carolyns Creations LETTERS BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer Hits were hard to come by, but the Union County High School baseball team didnt need many as it was able to score all of its runs in the seventh inning despite just having one hit in the inning to defeat top seed Williston 3-1 and win the District 6-1A championship on May 3 in Lake Butler. for the Tigers (18-8) since 2012 the year they won the state championship. Union hosted 9. If the Tigers won, they will either travel to play Madison County or host Williston for Tuesday, May 15, at 7 p.m. Starling, who drove in the trouble putting into words what trophy. Its indescribable, he said. It really is. It doesnt seem real. Freshmen pitcher Garrett Mullins, who earned the win, said, Im just so excited right now. Weve come so far from when we started in January. Weve grown so much as a team, as a family. I cant be more excited. Williston (18-7), who was the designated home team as the number-one seed, took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth. Chandler Neal hit a leadoff double and moved to inning, Union Head Coach Boo Mullins said he told his players, When this is over, weve still won tonight. If its 1-0 at the end, we won. Theyre supposed to beat us by 10 runs. The Tigers didnt settle for a moral victory, though. Garrett Mullins admitted he and his teammates lost a little but putting multiple runners on base in the second base changed that. We gained it right back, Mullins said. They couldnt take it away from us. a pitch to lead off the top of the seventh. Mullins moved courtesy runner Paden Clyatt before Clyatt then advanced to third on a wild pitch. Caden Cox was hit by a pitch and promptly stole second. Starling pitch he saw for a single that scored Clyatt. Coach Mullins told me, Get up there, and be ready to hit early in the count. Thats what I did, Starling said. I saw a fastball and put the bat on it. Cox was tagged out going to third on a ground ball hit by Skyler Shatto, leaving Starling on second and Shatto Jake Worthington drew a walk to load the bases, Whip Davis drew another walk to force Starling in and give the Tigers a 2-1 lead. Tripp Davis was then hit by a pitch to force Shatto in In the bottom of the seventh, batter and forced the second to ground out. Levi Pickel then popped up to Cox at shortstop to end the game. The seventh was only one of two innings in which the Tigers had multiple baserunners. In two on when Mullins singled and Starling walked. Williston ended the inning when it turned a ground ball hit by Shatto into a double play. Union had a runner on Williston had three runners in scoring position, leaving two stranded, while the other was thrown out on an attempt to steal third base. Mullins allowed four hits and no walks, while striking out three. Starling said, while Mullins said, I didnt do it by myself. Everybody played a role in this. That includes the head coach his father, who was a standout pitcher himself in high school and college before pitching in the Major Leagues for the Milwaukee Brewers. My dad, he calls pitches, Mullins said. Hes good at it. He called the right ones on the right counts. I threw it where it needed to go, and God blessed me. Coach Mullins said his son almost has no choice but to be a good pitcher because hes so hard on him. Still, the elder Mullins said he was surprised at how calm Garrett was on the mound. In fact, the whole season has been a pleasant surprise. Garrett is 7-1 with a Hes worked hard, Boo Mullins said. The coach has a pretty young team overall. Four of the starting nine against Williston were freshmen, while the other three juniors. Mullins said its almost a shock that the Tigers have won 18 games, including defeating a more experienced team in Williston for the district title. However, after working with this group all year, the coach is moving forward into the postseason. Theyre young, but theyre good, and theyre not scared, Mullins said.

Elixson said he never believed such an opportunity would present itself, but he was put into contact with Kentucky Christian coaches by NCA coach John Faulkner, who is a KCU alumnus. To know that hes going to go to the school I graduated from means a great deal to me, Faulkner said. Im excited for him, and I know that hell do great. Elixson visited the Grayson, Kentucky, school and liked what he saw. One thing I really like is that its a small school, Elixson said. Im not going to have to really worry about a bunch of people. but Elixson is going to KCU as a pitcher. Elixson is currently 5-1, with the Eagles set to wrap up their season at the state tournament in Orlando. Elixson has also had some offensive highlights this year, including four triples during a playoff game. To successfully transition from high school to college, Elixson said, I just have to work out and practice, practice, practice. Faulkner said Elixson is a great athlete, but hopes playing at KCU will help increase his I think theres a lot of humility there, but he also needs to have I think playing against other college athletes will hopefully ability. Faulkner said what KCU will get is a player who always strives to do his best. Hes a great student of the game, Faulkner said. Hes always trying to perfect his game. Hes very coachable. Hes very passionate about the game. time as a KCU Knight should be quite the experience. Elixson said. Its going to be inning or so, itll feel just like it does now (at NCA). Before Elixson signed his paperwork, Faulkner, who is also the schools athletic director, encouraged the entire student body, which was in attendance, to follow in Elixsons footsteps. Its exciting to see our student athletes have the opportunity to continue to play at the next level. I want every single one of you to know its possible, Faulkner said. Looking down at Faulkner added, Even you guys down here, you kindergarteners. Dont just stop after high school. Seek the opportunity to play sports at the next level. We will try to do whatever we can to make that happen.

Upset loss ends Tigers hoes for another state title Special to the TelegraphTimes-Monitor Union County ran into a the 1A state softball playoffs on Friday night in Lake Butler. It was an opponent they had already beaten 3-2 in the regular season, and this would be the third year in a row that the Fightin Tigers (15-5) would open their postseason with the Madison County Cowgirls. Last year, they propel them all the way to the 1A State title a few weeks later in Vero Beach. But as the old adage goes, you do not have to be the better team, you just have to be better on that night, and Madison County (158) was, earning a 5-2 triumph and spoiling Union Countys repeat title aspirations in the process. The Cowgirls got started early, with Laila Dickey leading off the The Fightin Tigers were quick stepped off the rubber in the bottom half of the inning and the umpire waved home Teala Howard, who had led off the inning with a bloop triple. The inning would end with the teams all knotted up at 1-1, and with Union leaving a runner in scoring position, something that would become a theme for the night. Over the next four innings, Lexi Androlevich commanded control of the circle, shutting Madison down and forcing a three up-three down each time. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they were also able to produce over the same time span, leaving four runners on base, including three in the bottom of the fourth. The Cowgirls would to left to score Hope Underhill and give the visiting side a 2-1 lead. The Tigers looked to be bouncing back in the bottom of continued her dominance from the rubber, ending the inning Above: Lexi Androlevich pitches in the Tigers Region game against Madison County.
