For example, the approximately $2.5 million to use toward the clean-up of fallen trees and debris in Alligator Creek and Sampson River. Now its a matter of determining how to best carry out that project, which will help reduce the We are a planning organization, were a response organization and then were a recovery organization, but probably the biggest part people dont realize about emergency management is were a mitigation organization as well, Shuford said, adding, Were going to look at whats happened in the past. Were going to try to mitigate some throughout the country and try to do something so that in the next event, we dont go through some of the same issues weve had historically. Shuford said he and personnel have been participating in rehearsals in preparation for this hurricane season. Such rehearsals have occurred locally and on the state level. We did participate in the state-wide hurricane exercise last month, Shuford said. Its a good event.

Yes, SpotOn has a device where businesses can use their phones to complete the credit/debit card transactions when the Internet or utility companies has a power outage.

The SpotOn software allows businesses to create customer loyalty programs, that can be changed anytime, and prompts customers who have redeemed deals or promotions to leave online reviews. 5.

He is one of approximately 30 youth who attended Santa Fe Colleges June 18-22 College for Kids program in Starke. LaFollette was no stranger to the program when he showed up Jr. College for Kids six years ago and has since moved up to the older College for Kids. Jr. College for Kids is for rising College for Kids is for rising sixth-10th-graders. Just the variety of classes, LaFollette said when asked what appeals to him about the program. All the classes Ive taken were really fun. He especially liked the fact that this years program offered a Chess Club class. Ive always loved playing chess, but I dont usually have a lot of people to play with, LaFollette said. that occurred in CSI: Starke, a class that is offered most every year and is taught by a member of the Starke Police Department. This years course offering included a number of arts and crafts classes, such as Cool Sculptures, Jewelry Design, Fun with Color, Wood Crafts and Pen and Paint. Great Wild World had children exploring, through projects, the great, wild world around them without leaving Starke, while, as its name suggests, Board Game Inventions had students creating their own board games. They have a variety of different subjects that you can take classes for, LaFollette said. Sometimes, those, like LaFollette, who return year after year are not students anymore. Simone Hudson, for example, a recent Bradford High School graduate, worked as a program aide something shes been doing since she aged out of the program. Its just fun helping kids, Hudson said. Theyre learning new things. All the classes are really fun. Hudson remembered enrolling in the program as a student for grade year. Some of the classes she really enjoyed were taught by Bradford Middle School art teacher Sheryl Dixon and had her making such things as jewelry and pillows. I wasnt sure how I would like it, Hudson said, but I ended up loving it. Thats why Hudson encourages children to give the program a chance. I recommend that they try it, she said. You can learn a lot of new things. Santa Fe College in Starke offers summer programs every year for youth. The Jr. College and College for Kids programs are accompanied by Exploring Science programs. The college also offers separate art and LEGO robotics programs.

Auto Accidents Work Injuries Headaches Neck and Back Pain Back & Neck Pain Clinic early so that we can work out and make corrections before the real event actually comes. Shuford said it has been predicted that this could be a bad hurricane season. Then Tropical Storm Alberto arrived prior to the start of hurricane season, which certainly seemed to give credence to those predictions. So far, though, not much activity has been observed in the Atlantic Ocean, though morethan-normal activity has been said. Shuford said predictions dont always come to fruition, of course, but they are based upon the knowledge of experts and should be heeded. We should pay attention to them, Shuford said. Plan for the worst. If we have an easy season, fantastic, but we want to be prepared. Likewise, Shuford hopes citizens of Bradford County pay attention to emergency management recommendations, including seeking shelter away from home. When we issue an evacuation order, we want people to understand we do not come to that decision without a great deal of consideration being given to what the impact of that is going to be, Shuford said. I want the public to trust when we give that evacuation order that it is their safety we are concerned with. Shuford said peoples lives are the number-one concern of emergency management and the number-one concern of the Bradford County assumed control of emergency management. Sheriff (Gordon) Smith has taken an approach to emergency management coming under his command as one more tool for us to just take care of our citizens, Shuford said. Re-inventing the wheel is not the goal Shuford said the goal of scrap the existing emergency management operation and start over. Rather, its to build off the existing foundation and constantly evaluate how emergency management can best serve the needs of Bradford Countys citizens. We certainly are looking at how can improve on what was already existing, Shuford said. One improvement should be the availability of the entire approximately 100 members, Shuford said, explaining that it should allow for a better initial response to an incident and better allow for handling an incident as it develops. I think were going to be more attentive and be able to be on top of incidents as things evolve and problems arise, Shuford said. I think were going to be able to deal with those directly and a lot faster. Our response capabilitys going to be a little more immediate. Shuford said dealing with a hurricane or other emergency there are no longer two separate agencies on different computer networks now trying to work emergency management was on the countys computer network, which was different from that of Also, Shuford said having BCSO staff involved will allow for breaks for him and Sullivan as well as provide better aroundthe-clock coverage. Wendy and I are certainly going to have oversight and control over the operations center as far as making sure we follow all the required steps from the state and the feds and looking out for the interests of the county, Shuford said, but its not practical to believe that one or the other of us can be here 24 hours a day for an extended period. Thats why were training other staff within the organization to help us and be there and certainly be able to to have down time. We have to have rest and recuperation time. This is going to allow us to be able to do that and then maximize the time that we are here and functioning so that it becomes a fully functional, 24hour operations center. Emergency management inmate work crews at its disposal for response and recovery efforts. and distribute sand bags prior to Hurricane Irma worked well. That was a fresh idea, Shuford said. I think the way we did that then is how were going to continue to do that going forward. Excited about job, team and mission Since he decided at the age of 19 to become a police years to law enforcement and public safety. Taking on the responsibilities of emergency management is a new challenge. I do want to be successful, Shuford said. I do want to have an emergency management program for our public that is no less effective than the best emergency management program on the planet. He doesnt have to go it alone, of course, but a successful emergency management program is more than him, Sullivan and the rest of the BCSO staff, he said. It also consists of the As Shuford described it, its a combining of forces to create one phenomenal response organization. comes under the sheriff, he said, but it does mean that were all focused on the same mission. As such, a motto along with an emblem was created: One team. One mission. I think that sums up what we believe emergency management is, Shuford said.

Well, Hazel Wall of Lake Butler didnt want a fuss made over her, but she eventually agreed to what turned out to be, in her words, a real big blowout. was a way of honoring God. Its not about me, she said. Its Gods goodness to me in letting me live this long and blessing me like he has. Thats what it was a celebration of Gods goodness to me. Wall turned 100 on June 25, but a party was held in her honor before then on June 16 at the Lake Butler Elementary School cafeteria. It was quite a crowd, of course, for someone who raised months of age) with her husband, J.E. (now deceased), and has great-great-grandchildren. In speaking about the photo taken of all the family members in attendance, Wall said, It must have looked like an army. It was just enormous. I dont know how many are in the family now. The family would be larger if Walls siblings were still alive. However, despite being the oldest of seven children, she is the only surviving child of Leo and Nellie Hoffman. If you didnt know Wall was 100, you might have a hard time believing it. She lives on her own and cares for herself. Her only limitation, really, is the result of a stroke, which has left her needing a walker for assistance in moving from place to place. I dont ever feel bad, Wall said. Sometimes I get tired, but thats just normal. I can still read without glasses. Ive still got all my teeth but two. One time, years ago, they wanted to take out my wisdom teeth that was about 30 or 40 years ago but I didnt want them to. They werent bothering me. They still dont bother me. Wall said shes been up and down and all over the place in her long life. It began in Arcadia, where she was born. Her family later moved to Fort Myers. She parents had on her life. My mother taught me when I was very young that God was everywhere, Wall said. I grew up knowing that, and I was never afraid of the dark or anything. Daddy he taught us how to love and how to be honest and how to live. He was just super. He was a carpenter. He never had much money, but he never needed any. He was always happy. Wall said her father whistled while he worked. I havent heard a man whistle in years, she said. I think theyve forgotten how. Wall was 13 when her family moved to Gasparilla Island. She said it was like living in Heaven. There couldnt be a better place to grow up than that island, Wall said. It was idyllic. It was while she was a student at Punta Gorda High School that she met the man who would become her husband. The right man When Wall saw J.E. (John Edward), she saw a good-looking boy who did well at school and was a leader at the school. He was different from the other boys shed been around. I guess I had always had in mind what I was looking for because all the other boys that I had ever dated didnt really mean much to me, Wall said. J.E., however, never seemed to notice Wall. Then, at a party at which students were playing J.E. selected Wall and kissed her under a bridge. Immediately after the party, things went on as before, Wall said. J.E. didnt talk to her at school, didnt pay any attention her out on a date, she found out why. He didnt have any transportation, Wall said. He had to ride his bicycle to school 7 miles, and then 7 miles home. He was very poor. Yet J.E. told a friend of his that was played, he met the girl who would be his wife. When the two From that night on, we knew we were meant for each other, Wall said. When they married, Wall and J.E. were involved in several businesses. They had a general store in Lawtey, a hardware store in Alachua and built and operated the Bradford Motor Court. J.E. also worked as a realestate broker. We tried just about everything, Wall said. in this area: daughter Wanda Clifford and sons John Wall IV, Michael Wall, Stephen Wall and Wayne Wall. J.E. died in 2010 at the age of 93. That was after 73 years of married life married to the right man, Wall said. Wall, when thinking back on those years, said, Id say that it was a happy marriage. Of course, we were in the real world and had a lot of ups and downs like everybody else, but we never had any problems with each other. Life on her own Though she was sad about J.E.s passing, Wall said as time went on, she learned to enjoy the time she had to herself. For one thing, shes been able to spend more time reading the Bible. Ive studied it and read it and taught it a lot through the years, Wall said, but lately, since Ive had more time with it and not all the distractions I had before, its meant a lot more to me. Though her mother taught her that God was everywhere and believed in what was recorded in the Bible, Wall didnt attend church as a child until her family moved to Gasparilla Island. She accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior at the age of 13. Now, Wall leads an adult Bible study group every other Tuesday at Worthington Springs Morningstar Baptist Church. Weve been going through the Bible one chapter at a time Wall said shes amazed those who attend the class still want her to teach. I thought they wouldnt want me because most of them in the class are young enough to be my grandchildren, she said. breakfast and catching up on whats going on in the world. She said she usually wakes at 7 a.m. and eats such things as oatmeal or cereal with bananas or Craisins on top. Sometimes meals are accompanied by juice and coffee. I have my coffee every morning and have had it every morning since I was about 15, 16 years old, Wall said. Shell watch TV for 30-40 minutes, but thats mainly to going to be like. For her news, she prefers to read The Wallstreet Journal, which she subscribes to. I go through the A section every day because I want to know whats going on in the world, Wall said. I might be the only old lady in town that reads The Wallstreet Journal. After getting dressed, Wall will do some chores around the house. She has someone come in once every couple of weeks to tend to the things shes not does everything else. Wall said she loves to do the laundry and looks forward to her trips to the grocery store. Most every evening, if I dont go to the grocery store that day which I do once a week I go for a walk down to the corner and back to get a little bit of exercise, she said. Wall enjoys cooking. She makes items for covereddish dinners at her church on Wednesday nights, saying people enjoy her dumplings and cornbread. Though she said shes never come across any foods she doesnt like to eat, she understands the importance of a balanced diet. Her plates always have fruits and vegetables. Its probably a better diet that even the people in the nursing homes get, Wall said. Some of Walls time is spent corresponding to family and friends by writing letters. She has especially enjoyed writing to a 12-year-old boy whom she heard play the piano at a recital. She told the boy she was going to write him a letter to express just how much she enjoyed his performance. The boys mother said, Well, if you write him, hell write you back. I really wasnt expecting that, but he does, Wall said. He writes me. I just get the nicest letters from him. Wall said she goes through a lot of stationery and postage, letters via email. Shes seen a lot of technological advancements in her day, but she never took time to become familiar with computers. I was kind of slow to catch on because I didnt realize everything was going to go on computers, she said. Wall has become resigned to learning how to use a cell phone due to problems she was having with her landline at home. Her use will be limited. Im going to learn to use it enough to where I can call somebody on it, accept a call, take a picture and receive a picture, she said. All the other things I probably wont do. Beyond 100 Wall said she doesnt want any more big to-dos like she had for her 100th birthday. That party had such a large turnout, it was hard to talk to everybody. Small I would rather have two or three little ones and have time to visit with everybody, Wall said. She doesnt give thought to any more birthdays. Wall said, I know Im not going to last very long, adding, I dont dread dying. In fact, I look forward to that. I wouldnt like to have to lay in the bed and be sick for a long time and have to be waited on, but I dont believe thats whats going to happen to me. I think the Lord will just pick me up some night when Im sleeping and take me home. Wall is quick to add, however, that shes not trying to take advanced age, she still worries about the effect her death would have on loved ones loved ones she wouldnt be around to help anymore. I cant bear the thought of not being here if they need me, Wall said. Other than that, she views her life as one in which she had the chance to do everything she wanted. The only thing shed like to do is to be able to go back and re-live some moments, relying upon the experience that comes with 110 years of life. You gain a little bit of wisdom as you grow, Wall said, but if you had that wisdom when you your life. Still, Wall has no complaints. That comes from knowing, thanks to the teaching of her mother, that God is everywhere and in control of her life. The Lord just blesses me, Wall said. Hazel Wall, pictured at her Lake Butler home, recently celebrated her 100th birthday. Five children, 14 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, 34 great-great-grandchildren and accompanying spouses make for quite a family gathering. Hazel W all is pictured front and center at her 100th birthday party. In regard to the large family gathering, she said, It must have looked like an army.
