Deadline Monday 5 p.m. before publication 904-964-6305 904-964-8628 Union County Times Union County Times USPS 648-200 Lake Butler, Florida Thursday, May 24, 2018 106 th Year 5 th Issue 75 CENTS Valedictorian: aim for goodness BY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor The valedictorian of Union County High Schools Class of 2018 urged her classmates to strive for goodness in their lives, adding that if they stay motivated and honest, everything else in life will fall into place. Erin Stidham started off her address by reciting some truisms she learned in her four years at the school: senioritis is real; no sandwich will ever rival a Skips sub; underclassmen can grow to be some of your best friends, and so can teachers; dont try and look cute for school, because Miss Debe (Stephenson) will always look better than you the best words are those that are spoken with kindness; life can change in an instant; the best version of you is the authentic version and youre never too old to hug your mom. Stidham added that while the technical knowledge gained in high school is important, true success will come to those who focus on their characters. I think that as long as youre focused on being an honest, motivated and overall good person, the rest will fall into place, she said. By the rest, stability, and other focal points of our lives. Stidham followed up on her statement that her classmates should strive to be good people by saying that the word good is overused. We use it to describe Mexican food and movies, however, goodness, being one of the fruits of the spirit, is something that our souls would starve without, she said. Goodness is virtue and holiness in action. This quality results in a life characterized by deeds motivated by righteousness, and a desire to be a blessing to others. With this quality, you are now driven by the desire individuals and impact their lives for the good, rather than to simply appear virtuous. As long as we seek to incorporate goodness into our lives, we are sure to succeed. The valedictorian said that for those who think goodness is beyond them, they should seek help from above. In Second Peter, chapter one, verse three, you read a promise: she told her classmates, His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him, who called us by His own glory and goodness. You, a creation of God, were created with goodness etched into your very existence, she added. Through Gods goodness and generosity, we are able to achieve outstanding things that we often naively view as unattainable. Whatever you decide to be, Stidham concluded, be a good one. Each of us has already received the strength and the power that we need. Class of 2018, what are you going to do with it? Valedictorian Erin Stidham leads the Class of 2018 in the Unity Circle, at the close of the commencement ceremony. Salutatorian: dont merely survive. Thrive. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor Union County High Schools Class of 2018 Salutatorian told her classmates that simply surviving life is not enough and that they should endeavor to thrive. Tori Wilkins started her address by reminding the Class of 2018 of some of Americas overachievers: Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King Jr., Walt Disney and Truett Cathy. What do (they) all have in common? she asked. All four of these individuals went above and beyond the status quo. They recognized that they had a purpose far greater than just serving. They were thriving. Wilkins read Websters upon a Casting Crowns song by the same name: We know we were made for so much more than ordinary lives. Its time for us to do more than just survive. We were made to thrive. Wilkins said that in order to discover their purpose, adding that she and her classmates original purpose is revealed in the Bible. Scripture reminds us of our original design and purpose, she said. Genesis 1:27 says we were made in the image of God. What an incredible thought that the Creator of the universe would fashion us in a way that is a is enough to remind us that we are far more than ordinary. Wilkins added another Old Testament passage to build on her theme, Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. This verse is not simply saying that the Lord is going to protect you, but also to bless you, Wilkins said. He has plans to prosper you and plans to give you hope. He has plans for Union County High School Class of 2018 Salutatorian Tori Wilkins addresses her classmates during the graduation ceremony. See WILKINS, 3A UCHS holds 2018 graduation May 18 BY TRACY LEE TATE Telegraph-Times-Monitor The hard work was over, the tests all graded and the caps and gowns donned proudly by the graduates. All that was left to complete a 12-year quest was them all graduate. The class of 2018 entered the Tiger Stadium, walking single a speed which bespoke of the solemnity of the event. They carefully entered the rows of seating laid out for them, trying not to smile or crack the joke they had just thought of, but their high spirits still leaked through they had all worked hard to be there and it was now their time. Once all were seated, the graduates were welcomed by Brooke Arin Waters, senior class president, whose talk focused on the achievements of all of the UCHS students over the past year, both in the academic and athletic arenas. She said that Union County High School was an astounding place to go to school and achieve so much. The 2018 class will be known for its many achievements. Water went on to tell her classmates that she hoped they all achieved their dreams and congratulated them on their graduation. senior class secretary, offered the invocation, followed by Erin Bertie Stidham, senior class vice president and class valedictorian, leading the pledge of allegiance. Union County High School Principal Mike Ripplinger took the podium for the recognition of the honor graduates and other graduates with notable achievements.

There is one more group of special graduates I would like to bring recognition to this evening, Ripplinger said. These men and women have made the choice to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against enemies, foreign and domestic. They are willing to serve and defend so that we may enjoy the very freedoms we many times take for granted. Ripplinger called out the names of the graduating seniors who had already committed to service in the United States military, and the branch of service they had selected. They were: Taylor Aaron Davis United States Marine Corp. Brian Michael Scott United States Marine Corp. Sara Louise Waters United Union commissioners send mining changes back to state BY DAN HILDEBRAN Managing Editor Union County Commissioners approved changes to their proposed amendment to the countys comprehensive land use plan during the commissions May 21 meeting. The changes were in response to technical comments from state agencies about the commissions original Comprehensive Plan state in February. CPA-17-02 established new rules for mining within Union County. It prohibited mining in wetlands, residential and in other environmentally-sensitive areas. It also required new standards for mining permits, regulations, reclamation, reuse, buffer zones and water-quality monitoring. After receiving the proposed amendment, Floridas Department of Economic Opportunity, Department of Environmental Protection and Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded with technical comments. County Attorney Russ Wade said most of the issues raised by the state agencies were minor, technical problems. For example, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection said Union Countys proposed amendment requires that the county land development regulations include standards for reclamation and reuse. The state agency recommended the countys policy refer to Florida Statutes Chapter 378: Land Reclamation. FDEP also had a problem with the amendments mitigation policy, which referred to a section of the Florida Administrative Code that had been repealed. The agency recommended the county refer instead to different sections of the administrative code. Citizens ask for delay Several members of the public, including Mark Lyons of Citizens Against Phosphate Mining, asked commissioners to delay their response to the state. They complained that they did not have access to the changes in time and wanted to review the countys response to the agencies before the county sent its changes to Tallahassee. One of our experts went through the comp. changes, Lyons told commissioners. She did not cover all of them because we simply didnt have time. She worked two-and-a-half days, around the clock just to come up with this little bit that we came up with. The attorney is still working as of today to go through the document and come up with something for us. Lyons added that it is important to get the comprehensive plan right, because the plan sets the framework for the more detailed land development regulations, which county commissioners have yet to approve. Your LDRs are dependent countys comp. plan, he said. So, this means its impossible to revise the LDRs until all of the proposed amendments to the countys comp. plan have been Additionally, were concerned that the proposed amendment revisions to the county comp. plan will attempt to or will diminish or remove the countys ability to determine land use in the county that are not supported by facts or science, he added. Wade, along with Sandra Joseph, senior planner with the Northeast Florida Regional Planning Council, brushed off those concerns. They said commissioners were only sending four proposed changes back to the state and the countys staff distilled those changes down to a four-page memo. Buffer zones Wade said the most substantive change was based on a recommendation by the Department of Economic Opportunity that requested clearer and more meaningful guidelines, in addition to predictable standards for establishing buffer zones between extraction activities and bodies of water or residential areas. He added that in response, the county added language to the amendment that said buffer zones around bodies of water and wetlands will be based on the size of the river, stream or wetlands, the proximity of federalor state-protected species, and the proximity to New River, Santa Fe River or Olustee Creek. Buffer zones around residential areas will be determined in accordance with future land use density.

Adult graduates reap reward for hard work There was a second high school graduation ceremony in Union County this spring, just a few days after the big event at the football stadium for all the UCHS graduates. In the second ceremony, the excitement ran just as high and the graduates were dressed in their caps and gowns, sharing small, nervous smiles as they marched into the UCHS auditorium to the sound of Pomp and Circumstance and took their seats. The graduates of the Union County Adult School were welcomed to their graduation ceremony by Union County Director of Adult Education Barry Sams, who complemented the graduates on their hard work and their dedication to their chosen course, shown by their completion of their program. Great things are coming for you all, Sams told the graduates. After the invocation, given by Mark Harrison, Sams took to the podium again and introduced the district dignitaries in attendance for the program. Present for the ceremony were Union County Superintendent of Schools Carlton Faulk, Union County School Board member Becky Raulerson and many members of the Adult School faculty and staff, including Harrison, Lee Clark, Cindy Short, Eugene Dukes, Chris Mecusker, Ginger Thompson and Christina Troup. Joey Dicks took the podium as the guest speaker and told the graduates how proud he was of them. He related the origin of the work graduate, saying it came from the Latin word gradus. Dicks said the Latin word translated as meaning taking a step forward, towards something, and told the graduates that that was exactly what they were doing. Your accomplishment is amazing, Dicks said. You have achieved something tonight that will propel you forward in life. I hope you graduate, or move forward in all areas of your life, professional and personal. Union County Adult Education Lead Teacher Eugene Dukes took the microphone and called the names of the graduates. As they climbed the steps to the stage they were met by Faulk, who gave them their high school diploma and congratulated them, and then Sams, who also offered his congratulations. To conclude the event, Faulk offered the closing comments, for supporting their students in completing their diplomas. He told the new graduates that this was a beginning for them, that so many doors were now open to them. He told them they had accomplished something that was theirs, that no one could ever take away from them. Faulk then asked the new graduates how many had children and/or jobs, and several raised their hands. Those of you who have worked and taken care of children while working towards your diploma have done double-duty, much more than the average high school graduate. You are to be commended for your hard work and dedication and I want you all to know that I am very proud of you all and wish you the best of futures. Throughout the ceremony, parents, husbands, wives, children and sweethearts sitting in the audience were lavish in their calls of pride and support as the graduates moved through the ceremony. Attendance was high for the event and the pride and support were made obvious.

We were put on this earth for a purpose far greater, and I pray that this message leaves you empowered to do more than just meet the status quo. Beyond discovering a purpose, Wilkins said a certain mentality is required for thriving in life. She said that management consultant Steven Covey put it this way: We have two mentalities when it comes to life, the scarcity mentality and the abundance mentality. Those in the scarcity mentality see life as one big pie. If someone were to get a big piece of the pie, it would mean less for themselves and everyone else. On the other hand, those who live out of the abundance mentality have developed an inner sense of personal worth and security. They live by the mantra that there is plenty of pie for everyone and even some to spare. This mentality results in sharing of honor, awards and of decision making. It opens possibilities, options, alternatives and creativity. My hope is that you will adopt the abundance mentality, Wilkins said. Cheer on your greatest competitor; help people; (say) thank you and genuinely mean it; love people well; choose humility; be authentic. Wilkins left the class of 2018 with some advice originating closer to home. My Aunt Angela said it best: Our mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style. Class of 2018: Thrive.

We thank you for the path you have chosen and your willingness to serve this great nation, Ripplinger said in conclusion. May God be with you and protect you. Tori Loraine Wilkins then offered her class salutatorian address, telling her fellow graduates to seek to thrive. She said all should work to have an abundance mentality, rather than a scarcity mentality, to be authentic and choose to be present in their lives. Life is not about what we have gained, but what we did, Wilkins told her classmates. Erin Bertie Stidham, class valedictorian, addressed the graduates next, reminiscing about her time at UCHS. She said she will always remember and cherish her memories of UCHS, where she said she received opportunities that I could not have gotten anywhere else. She said that UCHS was a place for her to grow up alongside her best friends. Stidham encouraged her classmates to focus on being a good person. The rest will fall into place. And told them Whatever you decide to be, be a good one. Bobbie Grace Barber, senior class treasurer, led the graduates and the crowd in the grandstands in the singing of Alma Mater, while the UCHS band played the song. Then it was time the moment all of them had come for and waited patiently for it to arrive. Joseph Dicks began calling the names of the 138 graduates from the 2018 senior class. As each climbed up to the stage, he greeted them, then passed them along to Union County Superintendent of Schools Carlton Faulk, who presented them with their diploma. When all the graduates had had their moment, and all of the pictures had been snapped, the graduates solemnly gathered and walked the traditional unity circle, stopping at the beginning of the circle to toss their brightly decorated caps in the air, then walking together for the last time as a class to the applause and shouts of the crowd. Graduation 2018 was over and all of its members were ready for their next step, whatever it might be. The names were in the record books, along with such information as the yellow rose song being Five More Minutes, by Scotty McCreery and the class motto being, Never Gave Up. The clock has been reset, and the UCHS class of 2019 waits in the wings for their moment to shine next year. GRADS Continued from 1A L Lahaman, Sonja Air Force Lane, Alvin Air Force VN Lewis, Paul L.

Regional News Regional News B Section Thursday, May 24, 2018 News from Bradford County, Union County and the Lake Region FEATURES CRIME SOCIALS OBITUARIES EDITORIAL BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer How does one retire without ever having worked? Steve Acree can tell you. Yes, for the past 40 years Acree had a job, most of it teaching PE at Hampton Elementary School. Take that word job and replace the b with a y, and youll understand Acrees sentiment. He enjoyed what he was doing. I just got lucky, he said. I just found something I loved to do. I never had to work a day in my life because I loved doing what I was doing. Acree, who is married to the former Sandy Friese a Bradford County native wished to express his thanks to so many people in Bradford. He said hes met a lot of great people, many of whom were less than 10 years old. Acree enjoys interacting with children and lending them an ear. The secret I found out with little kids is if you listen to them, and they know youre listening to them, theyll want to talk to you, Acree said. They have so much to say. He began his career in Bradford teaching math at Bradford Middle School in 1978. Elementary School the following year. It was in the mid-1980s when Acree began working in what he said was the best job anybody could have coaching PE at Hampton Elementary School. I was real fortunate to work there, Acree said. I met a lot of great people. Acree, whos taught the last 13 years at both Hampton and Brooker elementary schools, was basically doing his part to make school the positive experience he found it to be when he was a child. Loving school, Teaching at Hampton brought back memories for Acree. He found the school similar to the elementary school he went to in Archer. It was small, and he knew all the students and their parents. Some parents have gone through the experience of having to drag their kids out of bed to get them ready for school, but Acree makes it sound like he wasnt one of those children. I just loved the whole concept of school, he said. It was a social thing, but it was also a challenge to me to do good work. I always liked schoolwork. Archer children went to junior and senior high school in Newberry. It was there Acree met his mentor in PE Coach every morning to do push-ups and pull-ups in the wet grass. soccer, wrestling, badminton and ping-pong. He taught us everything, Acree said. That guy was probably the best teacher I ever had. Approximately 10 years ago, Acree wondered what happened up teaching at Middle Tennessee State University. Acree contacted he was the reason he became a PE coach. I do the same things he did, Acree said. Though teaching PE was his goal, Acree did not start out in teaching job, though, brought him to the county where he spent the duration of his career. Acree was tutoring math as an intern at North Marion Middle School when he received a call from a friend of his at Bradford Middle School. The school had an opening for a math teacher. Acree applied for the position and was hired by Principal Jesse Moore. He took a lot of math courses in college and enjoyed doing math, but Acree got what he really wanted the following year when he successfully applied to Ive always loved teaching PE. Thats my thing, Acree said. The UF graduate laughed at interview for the position. I walked into his room, and theres all this Georgia Bulldog stuff on the wall, Acree said. I was like, Oh, I dont know if this is going to work. It did work and worked especially well in that he got to work alongside another PE teacher in Robert Eddins. When theres two people, its a whole lot better than one, Acree said. Even though he enjoyed what to work as a substitute in Alachua County (he lived in Gainesville). I kind of lost my mind and quit working for four months, he said. He eventually returned to Then, in 1985, came the job at the school that was so special to him. Acree said Connie Clark, who was the principal at Hampton Elementary, called him during the summer of 1985, saying he wanted him to come teach PE at Hampton Elementary. Steve Acree says he got lucky to be able to do what he loves 1990s.

I went up there and got my dream job, Acree said. He said the great thing about the Hampton job was that he wasnt an all-day PE teacher. as teaching math or reading, or working in the computer lab. After 10 a.m., he would start his PE duties. Its been a great job, Acree said. I didnt have to stay outside all day long for PE every day. Acree said when he went to the school, people from the city of Hampton were in the Telegraph quite a bit for a variety of arrests. He described Hampton as an outlaw town back then. I was actually teaching kids whose parents were in prison for drug deals and stuff like that, Acree said. These kids were great. They all wanted to play and have a good time. Acrees tenure at Hampton outlasted those outlaw days. Hes had the opportunity to coach children and grandchildren of former students. Youll see kids, and theyre just like their parents in some way, Acree said. Its just fun. Ive just had so much fun out at Hampton all these years. Acrees had the pleasure of teaching all four of his children at Hampton, with his youngest brother Kevin at Bradford Middle School next year. Acree has two grown children as well: Stephanie, whos a lawyer in Washington, D.C., and Spencer, who delivers food and works as a stand-up comic in Gainesville. That was really cool, teaching my own kids, Acree said. It was 13 years ago that Superintendent of Schools Harry Hatcher told Acree hed be taking on the role of PE teacher at Brooker Elementary school, too. Acree was told it wouldnt be permanent, but hes still working at both. I knew the handwriting was on the wall, Acree said. They were going to save that money and let me do two schools. The situation wasnt ideal, but hes enjoyed being around each schools students. Its turned out pretty well, Acree said. The kids at Brooker are sort of like the kids at Hampton. Through the years, Acree has wanted to accomplish one thing with his students helping theyre good at and can take pride in. Children had lots of thing in Acrees classes. What I found out with kids is if you just give them as many different kinds of activities as one thing that kid can be good at, Acree said. Then you can build on it. Some of them are just scared to do stuff. If you can theyll just start to grow. Theyll blossom. Acree remembered one student who wasnt very good at jumping rope. Yet she practiced and practiced, getting to the point where she won the jump rope event in her age group at day. She then followed that up by winning the event at the county Its always a thrill when a child calls out to Acree to watch him or her do something successfully. I get to be there for their moment, he said. I get to be the parent of all of these children moment. Hes enjoyed meeting the children he taught when theyre adults, seeing and hearing about the successes theyve had in life. The memory of one such meeting is especially emotional for Acree. A student, as part of a class assignment, wrote about how he was her favorite teacher. Acree still has the paper she wrote, which concludes with the following: He is the best teacher. He is never ever never ever mean. One day after that, the student told Acree she was being abused by her stepfather. He called the Department of Children and Families to report the incident. He never saw the student again until about 12 years later. He was at Shands Hospital when a nurse approached him and told him, You saved my life. It was that same student. She grew up to have a life she can be proud of a life she didnt expect to have thanks to someone who cared. Thats what students want, Acree said. People say kids have changed. They havent changed. They still want to be loved, Acree said, adding, They still want someone who cares and gives them leadership. Not seeing the faces of the children every day will be quite a change. Hell miss the smiles and those a-ha moments. Thats going to be the hardest part, Acree said in regard to retirement. Can I do without that? away from a job that never felt like a job. for Clay County event BY CLIFF SMELLEY Telegraph Staff Writer Park High School junior who used to live in Starke, was chosen as the senior division winner of the poster contest for Clay Countys annual Concert on the Green, which will take place this Sunday, May 27, at 4 p.m. at St. Johns Country Day School in Orange Park.

6B Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Thursday, May 24, 2018 Special to the TelegraphTimes-Monitor On Thursday, May 18, Union County (1A) and P.K. Yonge (4A) each traveled to Keystone Heights (4A) for this years Spring Football Jamboree. The evening would consist of three halves, each consisting of two 10-minute quarters. The victory over the Blue Wave, 21-7, with the Tigers doing the same, 6-0 in the second half. The host-school battling the Union County to a 0-0 tie. Things kicked off with Keystone (4-6 a year ago) taking on PK (2-7 in 2017). With no live kicking game for the night, then took over at their own 25-yard line. They then went right to work with their potent rushing attack out of the wing formation. Taylor Vojnowski and Ty Friedlin traded carries Friedlin took it to the house from 39 yards out to put Keystone up 7-0 with 5:55 remaining in the opening quarter. The Blue Wave started the ensuing drive from their own 35, but a big pass breakup from freshman defensive back Colton Tibbetts and a tackle for a loss by junior defensive lineman Dad Dodd forced a three-and-out and after a PK punt, the Indians would take over at their own 43. After a Vojnowski 16yard run put the Tribe into Wave territory, freshman quarterback Gage Stevens hit freshman wide receiver Sterling Roberts on a and-goal just inside the 10. A few plays later Vojnowski took it in for the score on fourth-and-goal from the one. After sophomore kicker Anthony Brisenos extra point, Keystone led 14-0 with PK quarterback Denotae Mavin botched a hand-off to open the next drive, resulting in a ten-yard loss, but on the next play he was able to scramble out Blue Wave. Still, they would then go the wrong direction and have to punt it back to Keystone on fourth-and-22. Vojnowski and Friedlin went back to work, with Vojnowski hauling in an 18yard reception to take it to the Blue Wave 30. A bit of a melee ensued around the 10-yard line resulting in offsetting penalties before Friedlin would punch it in from inches out on third down to put the home side up 21-0 with 2:24 remaining in the contest. It was the sophomores second trip to paydirt on the evening. With everything over except for the crying, Mavin threw up a prayer, and it was answered when Jacari Byrd at the nine-yard line. Israel Wilcox took it in from the nine on the next play to give P.K. Yonge their only score of the night. The clock would prove to be the only thing that could stop Keystone in the contest as the game would then end in a 21-7 Keystone Heights Victory. With only a ten-minute break in between halves, the Tigers (6-5 last season) had to warm up quick to face the already battle tested Blue Wave. On the opening drive, senior middle linebacker Allan McClellon came up with a big 10-yard sack of Mavin forcing PK to punt it away. Unfortunately, the Union County returners did not get back deep enough in time and the punt went over their heads and bounced all the way down to the Tiger 17. In stepped new Tiger quarterback Anthony Hendrieth. The Junior was making the transition from the hardwood Yonge lineman Justin Conklin. Keystones Kaleb Yonge. Anthony Hendrieth looks for a receiver. Andrew Cox rolls out of the pocket. Yonge player are Keystone Murphy, Trey Horton and


to the gridiron and seeing the career. Head coach Ronny Pruitt would later say that Hendrieth practicing for three weeks. he handed off to junior Jalen Watkins for three yards. Union downs on the drive before a holding call backed them up then Watkins was stuffed on a fourthand-one play from the Tiger 44. PK took over from their own 37 but went three-and-out and had to punt it right back. On the ensuing drive, UCHS was again able to begin to matriculate the ball down the down on fourth-and-11 before a Watkins fumble was recovered by the Wave to give the ball back to PK. Thats when Junior defensive end Agelu NuNu woke the crowd up with a huge hit six Wave were forced to punt it away once again. This time Union County would not be denied, taking over the ball at the 49 with 6:07 remaining in the contest. After would turn on the Jets and race 38 yards for the score. The twopoint conversion would fail, but the Tigers still led 6-0 with 3:42 left. P.K. Yonge tried to make a game out of it, but Union County would stop them on fourth down with 57 seconds remaining and go on to the 6-0 victory. With each squad coming undefeated, the Indians and the Tigers would play to see who wins the night, but there would be no victor on the evening as zone prior to the clock hitting :00. Union County would completely control the clock in quarter on their opening drive get the stop on fourth down at the 10-yard line. The Tribe took over to open the second quarter but would only run seven plays before Friedlin punted the ball ball over the Tigers heads all the way down to the 20. Union County would drive to the Indians 39 but with 8.5 seconds left, Josh Hughes came up with the stop and then each team would have to settle with 1-0-1 records for the night, while P.K. Yonge went 0-2 on the evening. Both Pruitt and Keystone head coach Chuck Dickinson seemed pleased with their teams efforts on the evening. Dickinson even said he did not mind only having the evening because, It gave us a chance to get a good look at the defense. We have a lot of new guys and there were some missed assignments but that is to be expected at this point. Overall they played well. Pruitt said that he saw what he needed to, but it was a costly Spring junior center John Manning breaking his thumb, but he said, Hopefully he will be back as a senior when the regular season starts. He went on to add that It is always nice to play a full night of football without allowing a score, but there is still plenty to work on.

Weve got a lot of players playing and a lot of guys whove never played before so to see them out there playing Im excited for what we have coming up this season, he said.
