In question is the countys approval of zoning and land use changes to accommodate the FPL Solar Farm, listing policies from the comprehensive plan which state that the county will work to identify and protect endangered species and citing the fact that the county did not consult with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to obtain a biological opinion concerning any adverse impacts presented by the project to the mollusk. Power plant or power station?The letter continually refers to the FPL project as an industrial power plant, despite the fact that the term. According to MerriamWebster, the project is more properly called a power station.$10 for more than 1,200 acres? Another error in the letters accusations is the statement that The New River site in Union County for the FPL industrial power plant was purchased by FPL on March 5, 2018for $10 from Weyerhaeuser Company, under a Special Warranty Deed. According to sources in the Clerk of Court, this is not the case. In the second paragraph of the Special Warranty Deed, it is stated that for and in consideration of the sum of Ten and No/100 Dollars ($10.00) and other valuable consideration, the property was sold. The Times is advised that such language is common practice in this type of document and is often a measure taken by people who feel that others have no right to know the monetary details of a transaction.

In a letter dated August 7, from attorney Ralf Brookes, CAPM is not only opposed to the proposed HPSII phosphate mine, but also the soon to be constructed Florida Power and Light solar farm project. They also claim that documents related to agenda items of board meetings, workshops and special meetings have not been made available to the public and that they have been deprived of any meaningful public comment on a number of the countys recent actions.CAPM fears danger to freshwater musselAccording to Brookes letter, members of CAPM feel that the recent actions and inactions are inconsistent with the countys Comprehensive Students head back to school

Board member Curtis Clyatt chaired the July 31 special meeting, with Board Chairman Allen Parrish on vacation. Clyatt told the board that the required local effort for the year was 4.123 mills, down from last fund was the same as last year, at was also the same as last year, a total millage of 6.371 mills, a decrease from last year of 0.260 mills, to be added to county residents property taxes for support of the school system. For example, the owner of a property valued at $100,000 after exemptions would have paid $663.10 in support of the schools in 2017-18. This year, the owner of the same property, again valued at $100,000 after exemptions, will pay $637.10, a reduction of 0.260 mills, or $26. All of this is affected by the taxable value of the land in the county which has increased this $260,876,415 to $266,162,583 for 2018-19. The budget is divided into four sections: general, special revenue, debt service and capital projects. The general fund receives monies from federal, state and local sources and is the largest percentage of the budget. The district expects $55,000 in federal money for the year, $16,895,507 from the state and $1,479,068 from local taxes. The total of all of these sources, with the addition of fund balances from the previous year and necessary transfers from other funds, totals $21,032,320. The general fund contains the majority of the dollars for instruction, pupil personnel services, instructional media services, instructional and curriculum development, instructional staff training, instructional related technology, Board of Education, general administration, school administration, facilities acquisition and construction, pupil transportation services, plant operations, plant maintenance, administrative technology services and community services. These expenditures total $17,709,881. When the previous year fund balance is added, as well as a $200,000 transfer from the capital projects fund, the general fund is balanced at $21,032,320. The special revenue fund is funded mostly by federal sources, $2,553,568 for the 2018-19 year, with $21,250 to come from local sources. With the previous years fund balance added, the special revenue fund will total $3,024,444. The special revenue fund supplies some funds to instruction ($1,088,364), pupil personnel services ($159,880), instructional and curriculum development ($112,590), instructional staff training ($73,000) and general administration ($52,941). All of the funding for school food service is paid out of this fund, The debt service fund monies are provided by the state and are earmarked to pay debts incurred by the schools in the course of operations. State funds for debt service this year total $6,420. With the addition of last years closing fund balance, the total for the fund will be $7,901. The capital projects fund is funded solely with local funds. $394,300 from taxes. With the fund balance added in ($147,895), the total for the fund will be $542,195. Of this money, $100,000 is budgeted for pupil transportation services and $149,230 for debt service. There will be $200,000 transferred that would otherwise occur in the general fund. After all of the money has been accounted for, earmarked for year fund balances added in, we end up with a total of all funds of $24,606,860. This is the amount that the schools and the school board have to work with to run the schools for the coming year. Compared to many school districts, this amount is just a drop in the bucket, but in Union County everyone in the district works to make the funds do everything that is needed for the children.

After receiving their school supplies, the kids and their parents were treated to lunch, with hot dogs, chips, sweet treats and drinks provided by the post. Morris Sherman, coordinator of Safe Routes to Schools, a program of the WellFlorida Council, created at the request of FDOT, gave a talk about walking to school safely, including props such as full-size road signs and a portable crosswalk. I talk to kids about bicycle and pedestrian safety, Sherman said. I go to elementary and middle schools and work with PE teachers who pass the information along to the kids. The safety of our children in most important and we try to present the information in a way that will hold the kids attention and that they will remember. Many of the VFW membership were on hand to help with the event. This has been the most successful Back to School Bash we have ever hosted, said VFW Auxiliary President Barbara Fischer. We had almost triple the children than we had last year and I think everyone had a good time. We are proud to help families see that their children have what they need to be ready for school from the paid for the recording of the 17-page document, and that the deed document stamp, in other words the state tax paid on the transaction, was $69,171.90. The amount of the state tax valuable consideration. As reported in the Times, the deed includes an agreement which will allow Weyerhaeuser Company to retain the right to harvest existing timber on the seven parcels of land included in the transaction when the timber is ready to be cut.Connection between solar farm and HSPII suspected some connection between the solar farm and the proposed phosphate mine, making note of the proximity of the two on opposite sides of a section of the Florida Trail (North of PalatkaLake Butler State Trail). As such, part of the information demanded in the letter is not only the evaluation of all of the cumulative impacts from the proposed phosphate mining, but also to include impacts from the power source for the proposed mining. Also under criticism in the letter is the proposed logging of the land sold to FPL, not taking into consideration that the land was owned by a company which is engaged in silvaculture and trees. The letter states that the logging will be a result of the sale, when it would seem that a company engaged in silvaculture would have cut the trees anyway at some point if they had retained ownership of the land. The letter claims that the land was sold because it would not have exemption from federal permits for logging in wetlands.Is mining already underway?Also addressed in the letter are allegations that there is some sort of mining activities already taking place in the area of land known as the Beasley Tract (which is part of the proposed mine site). According to the letter, residents near the area have reported loud noises that sound like heavy equipment operating in that area between approximately 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. on June 25, 2018. Also questioned was the observation of a county van pulling a utility trailer in which Union County prisoners were riding that was seen by CAPM members that pulled up to a locked gate at what is the only entrance to the Beasley Tract. It was reported that another county van was already there and that CAPM members were directed to turn around and leave. The letter states that the CAPM members immediately proceeded Commissioners and reported the incident to both Board Secretary Diane Hannon and Board Chair Karen Cossey, who said she would go right then and see what was going on. The complaint in the matter comes from the fact that Cossey did not report back to them on what she discovered. Later in the letter the prisoners are referred to as state prisoners rather than county prisoners and it is questioned as to whether prison labor is being illegally used. The Request for Relief at the end of the letter requests that a total of ten items be implemented by the board at its August meeting. The requests include: The reconsideration and rescinding of the special exception to land use regulations and the zoning variances made to accommodate the FPL project. The amendment of the county Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations to regulate silvaculture and logging in the county. Prior to the meeting to conduct on-site investigation, with CAPM representatives present, of the Beasley Tract, the proposed FPL sites and the sawmill located in the property in question (and no longer in operation) and a summary of that investigation be presented at the August meeting. Provision of a summary of an investigation as to why a van full of state prisoners were taken to the Beasley Tract. To include no agenda items scheduled for a vote at the August meeting unless searchable pdf copies of all support documents have been posted to the commission website at least one week prior to the meeting. Adopt a procedure where all documents related to future agenda items, including those from the regional planning council, be submitted in a searchable pdf format at least two weeks prior to any of these items being placed on the agenda for the next commission meeting.

Lake Butler City Commission will hold a Budget Workshop on Tuesday, August 21st at 5:00 pm at City Hall Telegraph-Times-Monitor The annual Union County 4-H auction was held Saturday, Aug. 10 and brought together about 200 local organization supporters for a good meal, a chance to socialize and the opportunity to bid on nearly 100 items, from luxury to needed supplies. The event itself is a project of the Union County 4-H Foundation, a not-forestablished in 1981 to support the educational opportunities in the 4-H program beyond do. The foundations support of Union County 4-H has included scholarships so youngsters can attend 4-H camps and events as well as an academic scholarship. included roast pork, green beans, seasoned rice and cole slaw. The dessert table was impressive, as always, with more than 20 sweet selections to choose from, many of which were prepared by parents, club leaders and 4-H members themselves. The meal was sponsored by the Union County 4-H Foundation and Sheriff Brad Whitehead. Brian Barton did the cooking. Colan Coody, representing the Union County 4-H foundation, one of the sponsors of the event, reminded the members of the audience to dig deep when bidding. The idea here is to help the children of Union County, Coody said. The auction was lively, as auctioneer Mike Perry encouraged and cajoled the crowd to spend their money on the items paraded before them by 4-H members. The selection was varied, the items of good quality and the bidding energetic. One man was heard to say, of course Im bidding high. I can do that here and get what I want without my wife getting onto me about what I spent buying it. In total, the auction raised more than $6,500 for Union County 4-H in a little over three hours of bidding. The club baskets, as they are called, regardless of if they are made of a basket, bucket, cooler or even a crockpot, are always items of interest. Many of the special interest clubs in the 4-H will put together a group theme, and that basket will be auctioned. The club that creates the basket that brings the highest bid will receive their own pizza party as a reward for winning the competition. This year, the Outdoor Club took top honors with their Igloo cooler brought $300 in the auction. Congratulations to the members of the club! Thanks are due to all the local people and businesses who donated items for the auction, as well as to Union County 4-H Coordinator Kristi McCallister and her group of club leaders, who did yeomans work in getting the community center ready for the event and keeping everything organized and running smoothly.

Thursday, August 16, 2018 Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section 3B Its back-to-school time and everyone is settling into their regular routines. Everyone, that is, except your pet. Suddenly your dog is pottying in the house, wont leave your side, and is destroying things it normally wouldnt touch. If this sounds like your dog, then it might have separation anxiety. Separation anxiety is a feeling of nervousness, fear, or panic that develops when a dog is unable to be in contact with his or her family. Mild symptoms are often missed by owners or often interpreted as signs that our dogs missed us. But this anxiety can take on more severe forms and is reported as the number one reason pets are surrendered to pounds. Symptoms of established separation anxiety include: Barking, whining, or howling when left alone. Destructive behaviors (e.g., chewing and clawing at objects in the home). Escape attempts through or around doors and windows, crates, or fences. Prescription and nonprescription anxiety relievers (e.g., medications, nutritional supplements, and pheromone products) can help, but should be viewed as a way of enhancing the effectiveness of rather than replacing behavioral modification techniques. Behavioral modification protocols often include recommendations like: Pretend to leave (e.g., pick up your keys or purse) but then stay or walk out the door but immediately come back in. As long as the dog remains calm, gradually increase the amount of time you stay away. When you do get home, ignore your dog until he or she is calm. Do not allow your dog to sleep in your bed. Ask someone else to do things with your dog that he or she enjoys (e.g., going for walks). Get your dog to look forward to time alone by handing out special toys (food-filled ones work well) when you leave and putting them away when you are home. If you often have a television or radio on when you are at home, keep it on when you leave. If you believe that your dog might suffer from separation anxiety, it is important to remember that he or she is truly terrified in your absence and not being bad. Punishment of any sort is absolutely the wrong response to fear and will actually make the situation worse rather than better. Effective treatment for separation anxiety involves avoiding behaviors that reinforce neediness, teaching the dog to relax, and providing positive inforcement for doing so.

Telegraph, Times and Monitor B Section Most drugs of abuse target the brains reward system by flooding it with dopamine a neurotransmitter. Dopamine regulates emotion, motivation, and pleasure. Normal levels of dopamine compliment natural emotional and affective responses. Over stimulating the system with drugs produces intense euphoric feelings which reinforces the drug abuse behavior. When dopamine artificially increases due to drug usage, the brain naturally makes less dopamine on its own. Increasing the drug use is an attempt to gain the euphoria that was experienced when it was first taken. As the amount of the drug is increased to try and recapture the initial feelings, the body becomes more and more physically and now emotionally dependent. What was once taking drugs to feel high has now become taking drugs to stop withdrawal symptoms and the ever-present anxiety.rfntbrrftbb r br r ttf Its not fun anymore... 1801 N.
