* Annual MLK Day
observance
highlights work that
still needs to be
done.

By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
Testimonies from local
African-American citizens
indicated things have changed
a lot since Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. lost his life in the
cause of equality for all people
- but they also pointed out
that more change is needed.
Esther Kelly was the first
black person to work in the
offices at the Bradford County.
Courthouse. County Clerk Gib
Brown hired her in the 70s for
her financial expertise-and put
her in the primary financial
office in his organization.
Kelly told those assembled
at the MLK Day breakfast Jan.
17 that Brown was told he
could-be sure of his re-election
if he "got rid of that black in
his office". Brown told Kelly
of the statement and told her
she would not walk out of the
office until he did.
As it turned out. she didn't
walk out of the office until
many years after he did. She
remained to serve Brown's
successor, Ray'Norman, until
her retirement.
Kelly told another story
about dealing with a woman at
a bank. Her primary dealings
with the woman happened over
the phone. Then' one day,
Kelly went down to the bank
in person to transact some
business for the clerk's office.
The white woman at the
bank refused to allow her to
conduct county business until
she had called Brown to make
sure Kelly was telling the
truth. The woman at the bank
had thought Kelly was white
until that time.
Brown met Kelly at the door
-when she returned and
apologized to her for having to
be put through the
embarrassment of having hei
position doubted simply
because she was black.
Kelly said she went through
hard times, but said God
wanted her to pave the way as
a black woman occupying a
major financial office in
Bradford County government.
"He saw me through. I know
what God has brought me and
I can be thankful for today,"
she said..-
Kelly also warned that the
journey of local African-
Americans toward true
equality is -not.. yet over.
"Sometimes we forget the truly
hard'roads of yesterday. Some
have been paved, but there are
still hard roads to travel," she
said.
She urged parents to teach
their children about the hard
times of the past so they can
appreciate the present and be
prepared for any hard times
they encounter in the future.
The keynote speaker for the
event was Starke Mayor
Carolyn Spoonier, the fourth
African-American to sit on the
Starke City Council and the
second black woman to serve
as mayor.
Spooner has an extensive
background in counseling and
is staff relations director at
Northeast Florida State
Hospital in Macclenny. She is
very active in a wide array of
community organizations.
Spooner said African-
Americans today need to
change the words of the
historical Civil Rights
Movement theme, "We Shall

The policy of requiring
annexation in order to receive

of the city's negotiations with
Wal-Man. -
Vincent also indicated he had
a productive conversation with
the developer of Walgreens,
which plans to build a new store
at Beck's current location.
There will be a meeting in the
near future with the Department
of Transportation to determine
what will be necessary for DOT
to upgrade the turning radius at
the south west corner of the
property.

Animal control


costs up under

Starke leadership


* Billing gaffe
reduces county's
share by $20K.

By MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Staff Writer
The cost of animal control is
up since the city of Starke
assumed responsibility for the
department, but much of the
additional cost is being
shouldered by the city.
When Bradford County-
oversaw the service for the
unincorporated area and the
participating municipalities,
cost share was decided based on
population. For the 2001-2002


fiscal year the overall cost was
$39,036. In the 2002-2003
fiscal year, $37.740 was
expended on animal control....
Both of these figures are
reflective of the fact that the
city of .Lawtey was not a
participant at the time, so
animal control was not
conducted there and Lawtey did
not share in the cost.

FY 2001-2002

"There are a couple of other
businesses that had signs
destroyed. My feeling is if you
back off on the ordinance for
this, you're probably going to
back off on the ordinance for
everything," Vincent told the
city commission Jan. 18.
The most visible example of
a sign that was not allowed a
replacement is the sign lost by

Starke took over animal
-control at the dawn of the last
fiscal year, saying it could do a
better and more efficient job. It
replaced the county's employee
with contract employee Chuck
/Miller. Starke City Manager
Lee Vincent has said on more
than' one occasion that
complaints about animal control
have been on the decline. He
said the city is doing a good job
with animal control and is
confident in the abilities of the
city's animal control officer.
"Chuck .Miller is very
conscientious about his job and
his responsibilities," Vincent
said.
Instead of contributing an
amount based on its population,
each area is now being assessed
its portion f; the program's
costs based on the number of
calls emanating from that area. .
The overall cost of providing
animal control is up. Most of
the cost is borne by Starke and
Bradford County given the
number of calls for service.
Lawtey's first year of
participation cost the city more
than S4,000, which also,
contributed to the overall
budget increase. The cost
remained relatively even .for
Brooker, while Hampton's costs
were down dramatically as only
one service call was received.
Due to a Dilling error,
Bradford Cou ty will actually
pay less than the cost it incurred
over. the last year. When Starke
billed the county for its portion
of last year's costs it was
discovered that Starke still
owed the county for the prior
two years of service it received
while the county still provided
animal control. The outstanding
debt of $19,542 was subtracted
from the amount Starke billed
the county, leaving the county's
cost for 2003-2004 at $6,014.
Vincent said the city's failure
to pay the county for the prior
two years. resulted from the

county's failure to bill the city.
Starke will have to absorb that
portion of the county's animal
control costs for last year.
Starke has set aside $51,000
for animal control this year:
$22,000 for personnel, $2,000
for utility costs, $2,500 for
travel expenses, $2,000 for
insurance, $500 for pet food
and $22,000 for miscellaneous
costs that can include auto
parts, office supplies, chemicals
for sterilizing the pound,
veterinary services, cell phone
charges, solid waste disposal
and supplies to upgrade the
facilities.
In other business:
Year-end totals for the
Starke Police Department were
presented by .Chief Gordon
Smith. In 2004, officers
responded to 32,753 incidents,
arrested 1,097 individuals,
wrote 5,380 citations (1,450 or
27 percent of which were for
speeding). Twenty-three were
arrested for D.U.I.
Incidents were down slightly
to 2,024 in December. The
number of citations written
remained at the low end of the
spectrum, .165 in December
versus 719 12 months earlier.
Only 20 of the December
citations were written : for
speeding, compared to 216 in
January.
Smith indicated the
department is continuing to
pursue traffic control though,
primarily educational measures,
but is still conducting stops as-
the number of arrests indicate.
Arrests were up to 94 last
month, an increase over the 78
arrests made in November.

You can do a lot of good with a little bid


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

Many people, including
those in education, do not
understand exactly what the
Bradford County Education
Foundation (BCEF) does. A
simplified explanation would
be, as President Scott Roberts
puts it, "BCEF puts money
Where 'the rubber meets the
road in education".
Money raised by BCEF goes
directly into the hands of
students in the form of
scholarships and goes directly
into the bands of teachers in
the form of mini-grants they
use to provide special learning
experiences for their students.
The school board doesn't
discuss where the money goes.
The superintendent doesn't
decide what is funded.
Members of the local business
community raise the funds and
donate them ,directly to
students and teachers.
BCEF is a private, nonprofit
volunteer organization created
to assist local schools.'
SIn addition to the
DEs3hulaJsships and2n-ini-grants,'-;
BCEF also, funds a luncheon
for teachers and staff at the
beginning of each school year
and a luncheon for the
recipients of the county's


Teacher of the Year awards.
Part of the funds raised
come from a portion of the sale
of each education license plate
in Bradford County the
ones-with A, B, C on them.
SThe largest portion of the
funds raised, however, comes
from the annual silent auction
held in conjunction with the
annual banquet of the North
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce.
The silent auction last year
raised more than $11,000,
which funded 10 mini-grants
that impacted a total of more
than 1,200 students in the
county.
This year, the auction is
scheduled for Saturday, Jan.
22, at the Camp Blanding post
headquarters. It will begin at 5
p.m. with hors d'oeuvres being
served while people get a
chance to look over all the
items.
These items include vacation
trips, jewelry, beauty packages
designed to pamper the lady in
your life, artwork, and more
practical items like barbecue
grills, sets of steak knives and
much more.
Local citizens and-
businesses 'have the
opportunity to impact local
education in a positive way by-
donating a gift to the silent


auction. Call Roberts at 904-
964-7826 to arrange to donate.
You can also call Michele
Everson at 904-364-7524 (e-
mail BCEF@direcway.com) to
donate items.
Almost anything can be
auctioned. Items auctioned in
the past have included lawn
fertilizer, house cleaning
services, gift certificates for
dry cleaning, and almost
anything else you can think of.
No item is too big or too small.
Another way the public and
business community can help
is by participating in the
auction: Some 400 people will
be attending the chamber
banquet and all they have to do
is show up at 5 p.m. to take a
look at the items up for
auction.
A silent auction doesn't
have an auctioneer rattling off
bids. A piece of paper is
posted with each item. A
bidder writes down what he or
she wants to bid. Another
bidder may come along and
raise the bid by writing a
second amount down. The first
bidder can then go back and up
the ante. Whoever has .the
lge'fVmoul't-bi'd-W hen time
runs out goes home with the
item.
.The bid is tax deductible
since the proceeds go to
BCEF. The items up for


auction have been donated, so
all the funds are used to benefit
local teachers and students.
As an added incentive to the
football fans, a live auction
will be held with some special
Florida and Florida State
memorabilia.
If you can't attend the
banquet and silent auction,
cash donations to BCEF are
also tax deductible.
In 2004, recipients of
BCEF's mini-grants were:
Lawtey Community
School Charlotte Durrance
and Cindy Combs.
Brooker Elementary -
Shelly Wiest and Carol Starr.
.* Southside Elementary -
Tangelia Bass, Audrey
Murphy and Beth Williams
(one joint grant).

"we shall overcome some

television. She said she was
deeply impressed with his
courage, vision and dedication.
She was also impressed, even
as a child, with the risks he
was willing to take for
hundreds of thousands of


people throughout the country.
She said December 1955
sparked it all when King
learned about the refusal of a
black seamstress in Alabama
to give up her seat on the bus
to a white man. When blacks
refused to ride the bus for an
entire year demanding that
they be able to sit on a bus as
white people were allowed to
do the bus company shut
down.
It .became illegal to
segregate bus seating in 1966.
While King's protests were
always peaceful, Spooner said
the response to those
demonstrations was often
violent. Attack dogs were set
on unarmed men, women and
children and television sets
everywhere showed the
shocking footage on the news.
Spooner said a lot has been
accomplished, but there is a lot
still to be done. "Dr. King
dreamed of a time when
former slaves and slave owners
could sit down together at the
table, but the chjars are still
being pulled from that table,"
she said.
"I have faith in our
community, faith that things
are going to change because
we are the change agents. We
can compose a new symphony
of brotherhood," she said.
Spooner said that being the
second African-American
mayor of Starke had its place
in history, but she never
forgets that she is the mayor of
all of Starke all people, all
races, all beliefs, etc. She said
she believes in the theme,
"Don't judge me by my hue,
judge me by what I do".
She also urged those present
not to forget that the future is
in the hands of today's
children. She said the

teaching children hope in the
Lord and teaching them the
importance of a good

Firefighters
need
community
support
Dear Editor,
As a resident of Seminole
Ridge 'Subdivision and a
firefighter myself, I must
concur with the comments
made by chiefs Kevin Mobley
and John Acree.'
I live one street over from the
Smith home and arrived just as
the first fire engines were
pulling up. As a firefighter
with Gainesville Fire Rescue, I
felt compelled to help my own
neighbors when I saw the fire
from my front door.
Contrary to reports from Clay
County, firefighters do not need
"permission" to use the fire
hydrants during a fire.
Keystone's first arriving Engine
launched an attack on the fire,
while Melrose established a
sustained water supply using
fire hose specifically made for
delivering vast quantities 'of
water from the hydrant. This
was dope quickly,, much like it
.is done in Gainesville or any
other community. ; Melrose is
,actually very fortunate to have
fire hydrants, thanks in part to
past fire department leaders like
Rudolph and Thelma Dampier
who spearheaded the drive
many years ago.
; After checking with Chief
. Mobley, I helped stretch the
large hose to the side of the
home, helping.fight the fire.
The fire was very intense, and
both firefighters and
investigators agree that the fire
.had been burning for some time
prior to any call made to 911.
Between the use of the fire
hoses and the deck gun nozzle
on top of the fire truck, the fire
was contained and kept from
spreading beyond the home.
However in these situations it is
very difficult to salvage
anything due to the fire's
intensity. However, firefighters
did recover a number of
personal items, including Mr.
Smith's military medals, family
photo- albums and jewelry.
Keystone stayed throughout the
night, and Melrose firefighters
returned the next morning to
extinguish remnant pockets of
fire and assist the State Fire
Marshal investigator.
,/ M takejrips..-yi, g
rrp@ aeas. In tlesecays ofast!
bd 'arid the Iniernei, \e all
expect T-bone steak services on
a Spam budget.. Everyone
should be proud of the
firefighters in .their
neighborhoods. Chief Kevin
Mobley from Keystone, Chief
John Loftis of Melrose, Chief
Percy Sullivan of Theressa and
the other fire officers in and
around the region put forth this
effort to help their
community... and do it for a
fraction of the money
departments like .Gainesville,
Ocala and other counties use to
operate.
At a recent holiday gathering
Chief Acree of Melrose and I
were berated by a Melrose
resident for "allowing that fire
to burn" the Smith home.
When asked if she was there,
her answer was no.- she had
just heard others talking.
That does not cut it, folks. If
you have a gripe or concern,
take it up with the people
involved. These volunteers are
willing to put their lives on hold
and on the line to protect your
home and family... they neither
want or deserve to be insulted
because others do not
understand the actions of effects
of a raging fire inside a
building.
If you want to live in a town
where you can have 15
firefighters swarming all over
your home in 3-4 minutes, then
move to Gainesville or
Jacksonville. If you like the
small town charm and
peacefulness, expect that if you
call 911 it is going to take time
for help to arrive. Nobody is
ignoring your call for help, but
let's face it I have never seen
a fire engine drop out of the sky
at the moment you hang up the
telephone.
Can changes be made?
Absolutely. Automatic aid and
faster notification is a good
start. Better training and
communications between
agencies is better. But to really
make your hometown fire


tailored to the needs of the
handicapped individuals.
The training session will take
place Wednesday through
Friday, Jan. 19-21, from 10 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. at Sunshine
Industries at 1351 South Water
Street (SR-100) in Starke.
For more information, call
904-964-7699 and ask for
Johnnie Mosley or John
Conneely.

Youth is not properly
definable by age. It is a
spirit of daring, creating,
asserting life, and openly
relating to the world.
-Malcolm Boyd
*


Now is the time to take this
tragedy and make a positive
change. Not just in Seminole
Ridge or Melrose or
Keystone... but in every small
town and all surrounding
counties. Support your local
fire department. They need
your help just as much as you
need them.
Thank you for the
opportunity to comment.
Kindest Regards.

Continued from p. 1A
possession and consumption of
alcohol while on school
property, at school activities or
on school trips involving
students.
Bishop has said she was
preoccupied at the time and was
unaware a case of beer was
among several items she
purchased. Instead, it is
Bishop's husband, Harold, who
claims responsibility for
selecting the case of beer,
placing it on the check-out
counter and transporting it to
one of the school vans used for
the trip. Bishop said she''never
handled the beer or knew of its
purchase or presence,"
'according to a letter to the
superintendent from Bishop's
attorney, Donald Pinaud.
In the same letter, Pinaud
refers to the investigation as a
"witch-hunt," and he rejected
the initial proposal from the
school district, which asked that
Bishop give up her teaching
tenure and be reclassified as an
annual contract employee and
resign her coaching position. In
proclaiming the innocence of
his client, Pinaud referred to
previous attempts to take
employment action against
Bishop and tied those alleged
attempts to her admission to-
school officials that she is
pregnant.
SNot satisfied by Bishop's
claim of ignorance, the
superintendent did not comply
with Pinaud's request that the
school district drop the matter.
A letter 'from Hatcher's
attorney, John Cooper, states
that the claim of "no
knowledge" "just doesn't hold
water given all the facts we
have come to learn."
Cooper wrote that if "actual
knowledge" of the purchase
was proved during litigation, it
would result in the termination
of Bishop's employment.
Instead of moving further
toward" litigation, Cooper
offered another agreement in
which, Bishop would be
suspended without pay but be
allowed to retain her tenure.
She will not be returning to
coach the women's volleyball
team.
The school board approved
the agreement Jan. 10 after each
nMember was briefed.
individually. Bishop was not
mentioned 'b} name and no
public discussion of the incident
took place at the meeting as it
was 'agreed by Bishop and
Hatcher that the terms of the
agreement would be kept
confidential, except to the
extent that Florida Sunshine
Law requires the documents
referred to in this article be a
matter of public record.
Per the agreement, Bishop
waived her right to any legal
action against the
superintendent of the school
district related to any matter up
to the date the agreement was
executed as well as her right to
a hearing before the school
board over the suspension.
The. agreement also includes
her specific denial of any
wrongdoing or violation of
board policy of the state code of
ethics .

SUIT
Continued from p. 1A
violated, but its scope is wider
than the mere replacement of its
billboard. It points to elements
of the ordinance that seem to
base a sign's acceptability
solely upon its content, as with
ground signs on which only the
name of the shopping center
and its main tenants or a
directory of all the tenants is
permitted.
The complaint sites several
examples of potential limits
upon. political speech. For
example, the ordinance allows
certain temporary commercial
and political campaign signs,
but does not exempt political
signage not associated with a
special event or campaign.
It further claims the
ordinance is unconstitutional
because it relies upon an"
administrative official, in this'
case the zoning director, to
determine whether or not a
sign's content is lawful, and this
could allow for discrimination
against particular forms of
political expression.
Other criticisms include the
lack of a specified time period
for a permit to be approved and
the lack of a quasi-judicial
hearing process that would
establish a record of a decision
by the city that could be
challenged in court.
The city will seek a legal
opinion on the suit, but not


from its attorney, Terry Brown.
Because Brown' was, in fact,
advertising on the billboard in
question, the contractual
arrangement between Brown
and Sunshine presents a conflict
of interest for the attorney and
his firm.
The board voted to retain
attorney John Cooper, who will
first be asked to look into
similar cases that may have set
a precedent.
Commissioner Steve Futch
defended the sign ordinance as
.a good one, but said he didn't
want to throw away money if
other cities have lost similar
suits.
Commissioner Carolyn
Wimpy said the sign should not
be replaced.
"We put the 'ordinance in
place for a reason, and I can't
see someone coming and
making us put it (the sign) back
up," Wimpy said. "That's why
we have the ordinance, to
prevent these types of things."
But she agreed the city
should not pursue a defense if it
is a losing battle or if there is an
executive order allowing for
sign replacement following the
storms.
If Sunshine is successful in
litigation, the city could be
required to pay for both the
legal fees involved and the lost
revenue claimed by the
company. Defending the case
could also become expensive
for the city. As it is a federal
case, all hearing would take
place in Jacksonville and
require periodic travel for the
attorney retained by the city.

'Tsunami,

"donations are

deductible
The Internal Revenue Service
alerted taxpayers who itemize
deductions that they may claim
-on their. 2004 .tax returns
charitable donations made
during January 20.05 for relief
.of the victims of the Indian
Ocean Tsunami'.
The new law enacted on Jan.
7 allows these donations to be
-'deducted as if they were made
,on Dec. 31, 2004.
S"There are no extra forms to
fill out or any additional
burdens for taxpayers," said
IRS Commissioner Mark W.
Everson. "As long as you send
your check by the end of the
,month, the donation will be
itioate, jstl Like ,;it wa,still
.2004i^ t 'L"*' daLS c-1-' ''' a v --"-'
Trfj hew%0LaoYnly allofriwfor
,,cash contributions. The
-)contributions must be made
specifically for the relief of
victims in areas affected by.the
$,Dec. 26, 2004, tsunami in the
Ijndian Ocean. The new law


gi'es taxpa)ers the option of
deducting the contributions on
either their 2004 or 2005
returns, but not both.
The IRS advises taxpayers to
be sure their contributions go to
qualified charities. Taxpayers
who have a specific charity in
mind can make sure that it is a
qualified charity by doing a
search on IRS.gov. Some
organizations, such as churches
or governments, may be
qualified even though they are
not listed on IRS.gov. Donors
can find out more about
organizations helping the
victims of the tsunami from
agencies such as USAID and
USA Freedom Corp.
The IRS reminds donors that
contributions to foreign
organizations generally are not
deductible.
IRS Publication 526,
Charitable Contributions,
provides information on making
contributions to charities.
Publication 3833, Disaster
Relief: Providing Assistance
through Charitable
Organizations, explains how the
public can use charitable
organizations to help victims of
disasters, and how new
organizations can obtain tax-
exempt status. Both
publications are available on
IRS.gov.
When donors make
contributions to assist the
victims of the tsunami,' they
should notate their records to
that effect: Donors may want to
notate the memo field of checks
they send that it is a
contribution to help tsunami
victims.

Property

.appraisers

working to

provide relief
Bradford County Property
Appraiser Jimmy 'Alvarez
recently announced that county
residents whose homes were
damaged in the 2004 hurricane
season could be eligible for
hurricane relief in certain
circumstances.
In December, Governor Jeb
Bush and the Florida
Legislature created an $185
million hurricane relief
program to assist Floridians
who suffered in 'the devastating
storms of 2004. County
ioe pwn hout rievig he
TyQtslx jpsQ ,Qfc Lh.e.. ..ne-w

carefully, then apply for relief
if they are eligible under the
new program, Alvarez said.
"Although we had relatively
little damage compared to
other counties, it is possible


that some of our residents ma.
be eligible for assistance under
this new program and we want
to make sure they know it is
available," Alvarez said.
Alvarez and other Florida
property appraisers will
administer two forms of
hurricane relief:
$20 million in hurricane
relief for Florida property
owners with homestead
property tax exemptions.
Bradford County property
owners may apply to Aharez's
office for up to $1,500 in
hurricane relief if their home
was uninhabitable for 60 days
or more as a result of hurricane
damage. The relief payment
will be based on the number of
days that the home was
uninhabitable multiplied by a
daily proportion of the 2004
property tax levied on the
home. The home must have
had a valid 2004 Florida
homestead exemption.
Applications for property tax
related relief are due to the
property appraiser by March 1..
Statewide, relief payments are
capped at $20 million and the
law provides that individual
relief payments may be
reduced by an equal proportion
to maintain the total relief paid
out at $20 million.
Approved applicants can
expect to receive payments.
sometime in June 2005.
$15 million in hurricane
relief for Florida property
owners ,ho bought
replacement mobile homes.
Floridians may apply to their
county property appraiser for
up to $1,500 in hurricane relief
payments if they purchased a
mobile home to replace a
mobile home that suffered
major damage in a 2004
hurricane and that was their
permanent residence.
Applications -for relief for
Bradford County residents
who bought replacement
mobile homes are due to
Alvarez's office by May 1. The
relief is calculated based on
sales tax paid on the
replacement mobile home.
Applicants are eligible for
either relief for residents with
homestead exemptions or
relief related to mobile home
replacement, but not both .
The relief related to mobile
home replacement is capped at
$15 million statewide and
individual relief payments may
abe., reduced by an equal
proportion, t'o npninin the t,-il
.leIref padt 'at' $15' million
Approved applicants can
expect to receive payments
sometime in July 2005.
Copies of the application
form may be obtained by
visiting Alvarez's office or by


calling 9(0--966-6216.
For more information about
the hurricane relief program,
residents may visit the
property appraiser's Web site
at www.BradfordAppraiser.
com or the Florida Department
of Revenue Internet site at
www.myfloridaa.om/dor.-
Governor Bush and Florida
lawmakers also provided $150
million in hurricane relief for
Floridians who were required
to pay more than one insurance
.deductible when their property
was damaged by repeated
storms. This relief will be
administered by Treasurer
Tom Gallagher and the Florida
Department of Financial
Service-s. For more
information, call 1-800-22-

Women's heart health issues differ from men's


By MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
While many of the
differences between men and
women are obvious, some -
like the differences in the
effect and treatment of heart
disease are not so obvious.
Dr. Michael C. Dillon, of
Cardiology Associates in,
Gainesville, spoke to those
gathered at the Starke Altrusa
Club's Heart Health Luncheon
Jan. 13 and outlined the
information women should
know when thinking about
their cardiblogical health.
Dillon said that heart health
is an important issue for
women in particular because
heart disease is the leading
cause of death among women
in the United States. "A lot of
people think it is cancer, but
the leading cause is heart
disease. Some 3.2 million
women have some form of
heart disease that's one in
five women," he said.
Leading causes of
death in women
Heart disease 29.3%
Cancer 21.6%
Injuries, kidney disease,
infection 8.7%
Stroke 8.1%
Lung disease 5.1%
Diabetes 3.1%
Alzheimer's 3.1%
Dillon said women tend to
develop arterial disease later in
life than men, which is good.
Estrogen may assist in
protecting women from an
earlier onset of heart disease,
but research on its role is still
inconclusive.
Women tend to be older
when arterial disease is
discovered and because they
are older, they don't do as well
as men in the treatment phase.
Women tend to have other
health problems that impact
the treatment, said Dillon.
Looking at the older age
groups also indicates that heart
disease becomes more and
more-a problem for women. In
women 65 and older, 32.6
percent die of heart disease -
higher than the average 29.3
percent for all women.
Women of any age are 10
percent more likely to die after
an unrecognized heart attack
.than men..After a recognized
heart attack, the likelihood that
Sa woman 'will experience
additional complications or
disability is two times greater
than a man in the saine
situation.
A woman can also have
more difficulty in recognizing
a heart attack than men have.
Dillon said chest pain is the
most common symptom of
heart attack for both men and

you have to stop and rest, 'that
might be a warning sign," said
Dillon. :
Family\ hitorN can also be a
a warning sign. he said "'If 'our
grandfather had a heart attack
\\hen he \\as 80. that doesn't
constitute a lot of worry\ tor
\ou." said Dillon. "If one or
both of your parents had heart
attacks when the\ were less
than 60 'ears old that
would be a concern."
So if heart disease is a,
.particular problem for \%omen,
x.hhat can the\ do about it'?
Dillon. said the first thing is to
know more know \'hat the
risk factors are and hoat ,ou
can keep those factors from
becoming too great.
The risk factors for heart
disease things present in
your life that make 'heart
disease more likel- are
tobacco uje, high blood
pressure, a family hNstory of
heart. disease, diabetes, lipid
disorders. obesity -and/or low
physical activity rate and a
high-fat diet.
Smoking
"I realize that quitting
smoking is difficult to do,"
said Dillon. '"If.it weren't
difficult, eerp one would quit,
but smoking can cause or
contribute: to a lot of health


problems, including heart
-disease,"
He said that when younger
(in their 30s and 40s) people


have heart attacks, doctors
almost always find the patient
is a smoker.
Smoking one to. four
cigarettes per day can result in
two to three times greater risk
of heart disease. However, just
one year after a person stops
smoking, his or her risk of
heart disease drops by half.
After 10 years, the former
smoker's risk is the same as a
person who has never smoked.
Diabetes
Dillon said the prevalence of
diabetes has almost doubled
over the past 10 years and 50-
70 percent of all diabetes
patients die from heart disease.
Women are more susceptible
to certain side effects of
diabetes than men are, said
Dillon.
Cholesterol
Under age 50, women tend
to have better cholesterol
levels than men. After age 50,
however, women's cholesterol
levels /tend' to go up while
men's levels tend to remain the
same. Lowering cholesterol

Gold Head to host Yesterdays Festival on Jan.


A celebration of days gone by, called the
Yesterdays Festival, will be held Saturday. Jan.
29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gold Head Branch
State Park located six miles north of Keystone
Heights on SR- 21.
A demonstration performed by a Paso Fino
horse group will highlight the festival. The
horses are renowned for their smooth gait. You
may have seen a Paso Fino horse on television,
bearing its rider across an arena while the rider
balances a full wine glass on his flat-topped hat -
without spilling a single drop.
The horses are often used in elaborate
exhibitions and the riders at this event will be in


historic Hispanic dress.
Gold Head Associates, "Inc., will sponsor the
second annual Yesterdays Festival, which will
also feature an antique engine display, antique
car show, World. War II display from Camp
Blanding, guided hikes, historical reenactors, a
variety of musical groups and much more. Food
and refreshments will be sold by the Keystone
Heights High School Booster Club. Included on
the menu will be
chicken, hamburgers
and hot dogs.
Last year, the
festival's first year,


more than 700 people attend.
The festival is intended to let the area know
about Goldhead's citizens support organization,
called Goldhead Associates. The festival offers
Goldhead Associates an opportunity to showcase
everything the park can offer including hikes,
tram rides and living history exhibits.
A spokesperson for Goldhead Associates said
the organization hopes to make this event bigger'


29


and better every year so that more people will
become aware of the park, what it has to offer -
and how the public can assist in preserving all
that it has to offer.
The-park entrance fee of $4 per vehicle will be
charged for the event. There will be no other
charge to participate in the festival. For more
information or questions, please contact Gold
Head Branch State Park at 352-473-4701.


This 1928 Ford was on display last year. Antique and collectible
cars will be on display at this year's festival as well.


The River City Connection was one of numerous live performing groups and individuals last year. A
variety of musical and other entertainment is also planned for this year.

levels can be very important,
said Dillon, since a one percent
drop in cholesterol can yield a
two to three percent drop in the
risk of lheart attack.
Obesity
"We are in the middle of an
epidemic of obesity," said
Dillon. "That is true of women
as well as men and children.
Obesity kills 300,000
Americans every year."
The incidence of obesity in
women from 1988-1994 was
25.4 percent. The incidence of
obesity from 1999-2000 was
33.4 percent.
Some 30 percent of all
women report little or no
regular physical activity, a
situation that: contributes to
obesity. Dillon said in spite of
all the advertisements about
'different diets, diet alone %ill
not combat obesity. "You need
exercise of some type," he
said.
He said that any increased
level of physical activity will
be an improvement.
In addition to contributing to
the incidence of heart disease,
obesity also makes some of the
tests used to diagnose heart
disease difficult to use.
'When dealing with a heavy
person, all the diagnostic tests
become more complicated,"
said Dillon.
He also said that once a
person comes to the doctor
suspecting a heart problem, a
simple physical exam will
often not show any problem.
Electrocardiograms (ECG or
EKG), echocardiograms, stress
tests, CT scans and. MRIs are
other diagnostic tests used to
determine if a patient has heart
problems. Cardiac
catheterizations are invasize
procedures used to diagnose.

In Memory
In Loving Memory of
Mr Joseph Wesley Jenkins
Nov. 1935 Jan. 1998
Sunrise Sunset
YOU'LL NEVER BE GONE
When the warmth of the sun
touches my face, I see your smile
andfeel your embrace.
I hear the whisper of love in the
wind and I know that you are close
to me again.
The rain speaks of tears and the
thunder of pain, but soon the sun
comes the earth to reclaim.
As the days come and go and the
world moves on, I know you're
still here, you'll never be gone.
On the night the angel came and
took your hand, we cried as you
left for an unknown land.
But Heaven rejoiced as you came
into sight, for your soul was a
diamond, shining so bright.
Love forever

Artist paints, teaches all in one stroke


By CLIFF SMELLEY .
Telegraph Staff Writer

Christie Allen loves teaching
almost as much as she loves
painting and the Bradford-
Union Vo-Tech has given her
an opportunity to teach a
weekly class, which began on
Tuesday.
"The class is full," Allen said.
"Hopefully we will do another
class after that because we've
got a runover."
Allen, who has already been
teaching classes once a week at
her studio on Edwards Road in
Starke, will be teaching Donna
Dewberry's one-stroke
technique in a six-week course
Sat the Vo-Tech. The technique,
as its name implies, uses one
stroke with a double-loaded
brush to take care of highlights,
shadows and color changes.
"It's a fast technique that is
easy for people to learn and to
build on," Allen said. "Once
they master that, most students
tell me they -feel more
comfortable with a brush
because we use so much paint
on it. A lot of techniques I've
done in the past use a miniscule
amount of paint on your brush.
This one, you just load it up and
paint and paint."
: Allen said students in her Vo-
Tech class will be learning
basic one-stroke techniques to
paint such things as
wildflowers, ivy, roses and
sunflowers. Students will also
complete a project each night
that they can take home with
them.
Prior to the start of her class,
Allen said the first class would
consist of her explaining what
the one-stroke technique is,
who Donna Dewberry is, how
to take care of brushes and what
one-stroke products are and
how to use them. She said she
would then show students how

Christie Allen shows off some of her handiwork when
it comes to using the Donna Dewberry one-stroke
painting method. Allen is currently teaching a class at
the Vo-Tech.


to load their brush and in no
time they would be painting.
"Within 15 minutes of being
there, they're going to be
dipping in paint," Allen said.
.Some students may be
apprehensive about picking up a
brush, believing they have no
artistic talent. Allen has heard
that from students she has
taught previously, but many of
them were "pleasantly
surprised," she said.
"I have several students in
my day classes-none of them
have painted at all," Allen said.
"They come in and they can do
all kinds of stuff. They just
thought they could never do
something like this."
Allen was doing craft
painting for 4-5 years before
she got into the one-stroke
technique in 2002. She was
teaching basic painting classes
for a women's group once a
month. One of the women in
the class tried to' learn the one-
stroke method from another
instructor, but she could not
master it. That woman
'encouraged Allen to learn the
Method, so: Allen; in turn could:
teach her.
Dewberry has many
instructional videos and books
on the market, so Allen took
Advantage of them.
"I just bought the stuff and


taught myself," she said. "I
used those ladies (in the class)
as guinea pigs the first year.
They learned along with me."
. Since then, Allen, who
became a certified Donna
Dewberry one-stroke instructor


in December 2002, has been
,painting on just about
everything, whether it's fabric,
wood or glass. Even mailboxes
give her a place to display her
work.
"They're a neat surface
because if you mess up, you
just wipe it off and start over,"
Allen said.
She has painted several
mailboxes for people, as well as
painting people's walls-no
matter what room they're in.
"I love painting bathrooms,"
Allen said, "because you can
take a plain, ugly bathroom and
just transform it. It just makes
such a big difference." (If you
have been in the restrooms in
Larry's Subs, then you have
seen Allen's work.)
Allen cites painting walls as
her favorite thing to do, but
there is something else she
enjoys doing along with that.
I love teaching just as
much," she said. "I think I
really have the best of all
worlds-I can teach and I can
still go out and do people's
walls."
Now the Vo-Tech gives
Allen another opportunity to
teach and, in her words, another
opportunity to keep learning.
"I learn as much from
(students) as they learn from
me," Allen said. "Everybody
has a different style and
different vision."

Bronson:
'Huge tomato
crop remains
unpicked'
Acres of Florida tomatoes
remain unpicked while the
general public still perceives a
shortage, Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson was told by growers
during a recent'tour of south
Florida tomato farms.
"I was shocked to see acre
upon acre of unharvested
tomatoes," Bronson said after
visiting tomato farms in
Homestead. "The perception of
a tomato shortage still remains
in the mind of the public. As a
result, consumers aren't buying
tomatoes, retail grocers and
restaurants aren't placing
orders, and our growers are
facing disaster because they
can't sell their crop."
Bronson said that, while
there was a short-term shortage
of tomatoes immediately after
the state's destructive hurricane
season, Florida's farmers
replanted and there now is an
abundance of fresh tomatoes.
"Florida's tomato farmers
worked hard to get back in
business following the
hurricanes, but are now
frustrated as their crop remains
in the field, because they can't
find buyers," Bronson said.
"Even with this abundant
tomato supply, we're still
hearing stories that some
restaurants and fast-food
establishments are still
limiting tomatoes or not
serving them at all."
Retail grocery prices for
tomatoes, which had peaked at
nearly $4 per pound in October
and November, have begun
returning to more normal
levels. Bronson was told by
growers that they are receiving
15 to 20 cents per pound for
their tomatoes..
Bronson told growers he has
directed his Division of
Marketing and Development to
assist them in moving the
current tomato crop into the


marketplace.
"We want
consumers to


as top ranger
organizations. He assists in training with local
fire departments and serves as the fire
prevention coordinator for Bradford and Union
counties. Work assists the county forester on
many projects, including environmental
education, tree planting and forestry assistance
for landowners.
The Florida Forestry Association presents the
Forest Ranger of the Year Award to government
forest rangers who work beyond the call of duty
to serve and protect forest landowners. Award
recipients are recognized for promoting
wildfire prevention, advocating the use of
controlled fire as a management tool,
suppressing wildfire and educating the public
on fire-related issues.

know that


Florida is back in the fresh
tomato business," Bronson'
said. "We encourage corporate
buyers for grocery chains and
restaurants to move swiftly to
help satisfy consumers' pent-up
demand for this delicious and
healthy product."
Florida's devastating!
hurricane season --,,.which:
destroyed tomatoes in the field
and delayed planting of new
crops had contributed to a
short-term shortage of fresh
tomatoes in much of the
country. The situation was
exacerbated by problems in
other tomato-producing areas
(heavy rains during the harvest
season in California and a
continuing pest problem in
Mexico). As a result, many
consumers saw empty tomato


Traffic
blocked
for hours on
US-301 south
Four semi-trucks and a
passenger vehicle involved in a
pile-up Jan. 12 on US-301

a traffic problem that lasted
several hours.

Keystone flight school receives accreditation


By ARNIE HARRIS
Monitor Staff Writer

Anyone who has ever
dreamt of learning to fly can
earn his or her wings at the
Aquila Aviation School,
located at Keystone Heights
Airport.
Under the tutelage of owner
Neil Brooks and his fellow
flight instructors, Patrick Gray
and Richard Tillery, the school
offers lessons in how to pilot
private planes, as well as
helicopters.
"Everybody can learn," said
instructor Gray. "No matter if
they've never been in an
airplane or helicopter before.
I've had students from all age
groups. The oldest I know of is
an 82-year-old man."
When asked if there's a
problem if someone suffers
from a fear of heights, Gray
said, "I'm afraid of heights
myself, yet here I am, a flight
instructor. It's all a matter of
conquering fear through
knowing you're in control of
the craft."
Brooks took over ownership
of the aviation school a year

To ensure safety during this
fledgling period, the planes are'

Host Keystone Heights put
together a furious rally in the
game's final two-and-a-half
minutes, but the Indians still
came up short against Santa Fe,
falling 53-51 in a girls' District
4-3A basketball matchup on
Jan. 14.
Keystone, which lost to Santa
Fe by a point earlier this season,
missed out on an opportunity to
force a tie atop the district
standings. The Indians are now
4-2 in the district and were 11-6
overall prior to. a game on
Tuesday. The Raiders improved
to'5-0 in the district and to 10-5
Santa Fe led by seven at the
half, but the Indians were able
to whittle that lead down to four
entering the fourth quarter.
Keystone then pulled within
two after consecutive laups by
Mary Anne McCall and Sara
Crane.
Keystone, however, missed
six of its next seven field goal
attempts as the Raiders went on
a 9-2 run to build a 48-39 lead
with 2:35 remaining. Santa Fe's
Janay McCray grabbed four
defensive rebounds during that
stretch, but she made just 3-of-6
free throws, preventing the
Raiders from going up by more
than nine points.
J essica Whitfield scored
consecutive baskets for
Keystone before Mindy

with one minute remaining to

Bradford put together runs of
16-3 and 15-0 to turn a close
game into an 84-46 win over
visiting Fort White in a District
4-3A boys' basketball matchup
on Jan. 13.
The Tornadoes trailed 30-28
in the second quarter, but were
able to take a 44-33 lead at the
half. Japan Ruise, who led all
scorers with 33 points, got the
Tornadoes rolling. He scored
two baskets and recorded an
assist on a score by D'Andre
Seay.
Seay, who finished with 22
points, added a 3-pointer that
put the Tornadoes up 37-33.
Darryl Hankerson then scored
following his own steal and was
fouled in the process.
Hankerson's free throw was no
good, but Ruise rebounded the
miss and kicked it out to Seay,
who drained another 3-pointer.
Seay had 10 points during the
16-3 run, including a layup
before the buzzer after dribbling
the length of the court.
Seay and Hankerson were
instrumental in a fast start to the
third quarter. Hankerson had
consecutive 3-pointers and Seay
added another as the Tornadoes
scored the first 15 points of the
period. Hankerson's second 3-

Grandma Gertie...


By JOHN WHITFIELD
Contributing Outdoors Editor
Grandma Gertie that's what
many folks called her. Her name
was Eula Gertrude Whitfield
(1904-1977). She was just
"grandma" to me and my
brother, Mike. She was also my
fishing mentor.
She taught me both how to
fish and how to correctly bait a
hook. She tried to teach me how
to throw out an open faced reel -
one of those old, big,
cumbersome saltwater reels of
the 1950s. She was a 100 percent
saltwater fisherman NO
freshwater fishing. She had this
serious thing about snakes.
Casting out
She did her best to show me
how to cast out over an incoming
wave at the beach while surf
fishing, but I never could toss the
rig out very far without a major
league backlash. Bless her heart,
whenever she took Mike and me
fishing, she probably spent more
time untangling backlashes than
actually fishing. On one trip, my
brother and I actually managed
to severely tangle up all three
reels so badly that we had to give
up and go home.
Those old big reels were
heavy, too, with no line guides.
They were always mounted with
huge bolts onto a too short, too
stout pole. Anything within 20
feet of me was in mortal danger
whenever I tried to throw that
thing but in the surf. Sometimes,
I'd misfire and slap the beach
right in front of us, burying the
sinker in the sand. Other times,
I'd finally get a little distance,
only to push my thumb down too
hard, mess up the'cast and put a


serious line burn on my thumb.
Oh, how that hurt. Even a Band-
Aid and a grandma's kiss
couldn't take that pain away.
Ever done that?
But, boy howdy,, could
Grandma Gertie ever throw out
her own rig. She was right
handed but always threw out left
handed, a crossover-type cast.
Even years after she passed on,
my dad and uncles would tell me
that they never saw even one
man throw out farther.
Fishing with grandma
Somehow, through those early
years, Grandma taught me how
to fish saltwater. We fished the
surf (her favorite), the sound, the
intracoastal waterway, the rocks,
the marsh, the bridges, the
docks, and, of course, my
favorite place, the fishing pier.
My hometown, Wilmington,
N.C., had two commercial
fishing piers available to the
public the Crystal and Johnny
Mercer's, both down at
Wrightsville Beach.
When Hurricane Hazel
knocked the end off Grandma's
favorite pier, they tied ropes
across the ends and Grandma
was out there, throwing out
across the ropes, spray hitting
her in the face, because "the
blues were running".
I loved the piers for many
reasons. The first was the most
obvious... bathrooms. You know
little boys.
Secondly, there was a snack
shop where they sold soft drinks,
peanuts and "Nabs." (Nabs were
packs of cheese crackers with
peanut butter'fillings.) The snack
shop had to be visited several
times a day, especially when the
fish weren't biting.
.Most importantly, you didn't


have to actually cast your line
out. You could just flip the bail
and let 'er drop straight down.
Doing this, I caught lots of angel
fish, whiting (which Grandma
called Virginia mullet), pigfish,
croakers and, of course, the all-
time champion bait stealers of
the sea, the pinfish.
Pinfish could steal your bait
the quickest of any fish.
Sometimes, you would not even
feel a touch on the line, not a
bump, tap or pull. You'd just reel
up empty hooks. We finally
started winning this fight by
going to smaller hooks and
smaller pieces of bait. How
many times did I hear Grandma
say, "Boys, don't feed all the
shrimp to those pinfish."
If you have ever tried eating
pinfish, they are excellent, some
even compare it to flounder or
trout. It just takes a lot of them,
like 20, for a meal. But be
careful cleaning these little
monsters. The pins on a pinfish
are. world famous for sneak
attacks on unsuspecting fingers!
The photograph board
There was one more must-see
place on the old piers, the crude
bulletin board with all the old
fish photos on it. Crude. Rough.
Faded.
As a young boy, I used to
stand there and stare. All those
fish, all kinds, sizes and
varieties, and all in two beautiful
colors black and white.
I would dream of catching any
fish I saw. Oh, how I could
dream. I'd dream that I would
catch a huge fish and have my
picture and name put up on that
board. I dreamed of catching
any fish big enough to take a
picture of and place on the
board. If perchance a real
miracle ever actually happened,
I'd catch a world record and get
MY picture in the paper. Hey,
maybe a three-pound pinfish or
10-pound croaker! A boy's gotta
dream, right?
Remembering
I remember many a day at the
beach with Grandma. She
carried all her tackles, hooks and
gear in an 'old, painted yellow
wicker-type basket. We took an
old galvanized bucket to put the
fish in. As trunks in cars in the
50s were so small, we. either
stuck the rods out the back rear
passenger side window, or we
just put them across the seats
inside the car with the rod butt
up on the rear glass and the rod
tips on the dash board. Her old
car, a '55 Chevy, was a three on


the column gear shift and I'm
sure it was less than safe driving
and shifting the gears with hooks
and tackle inches away, often
dangling down in front of the
radio knobs.
Somehow, we made it back
and forth to the water. All but the
day my little brother poured
water into Grandma's gas tank.
We didn't make it home that day
Sand Grandaddy had to come get
us. He was really upset as we got
towed home. I don't think that
Grandma ever told him what
really happened to his car.
The day she passed away, in
1977. Grandma Gertie was
driving two older ladies to the
beach to buy some fish at the
fish market. Her last deed on this
earth was connected to two
things she really loved people
and fishing. Perhaps now she is
fishing in that Crystal River and
having the time of her life.
"Attaboy"
Grandma's favorite expression
of exhortation was simply,
"Attaboy." And she always said
it with a huge endearing smile.
You'd catch a fish, any fish..
"Attaboy!" You'd get a good
report card... "Attaboy!" You
killed a squirrel out of her
garden... "Attaboy!"
If I had the chance to live my
life over, I'd take a tape recorder
with me and tape Grandma
Gertie saying "Attaboy!" I'd
keep that tape in a very special
place so that whenever I did
something that I thought was
pretty good, I'd hit that play
button and hear that sweet, sweet
voice go... "Attaboy!"
Grandma Gertie, a fisherman's
best friend. Thank you for three
Things:
Thank you for teaching me
how to tie the fisherman's knot.
Thank you for teaching me to
love people.
Thank you for teaching me to
love the great outdoors.
Maybe some day I will catch a
record fish or do something
really good. If I do, I'll close my
eyes, push that button in my
mind, and hear it one more
time... "Attaboy!" Let's go
fishing !

The second-ranked team in
Class 4A rolled into the
Bradford High School gym with
an undefeated record and rolled
right back out still undefeated
as the Bradford girls' basketball
team suffered a 70-40 loss to
the Eastside Rams on Jan. 17.
Eastside, which improved to
18-0, outscored the Tornadoes
15-7 in the second quarter,
turning a nine-point lead into
one of 17 points. Bradford (4-6
prior to Jan. 18) shot 1-of-10
from the field in the quarter and
committed nine turnovers.
The Rams would put together
a 12-2 run in the third quarter to
build their lead to 52-21.
Eastside's Latoya Williams
blocked four shots early in the
period and she and the rest of
the Rams' starters went to the
bench, midway through the
quarter and did not return.
One of the bright spots for
the Tornadoes in the quarter
came from Tosha Gordon and
Ashley Thompkins. Thompkins,
who scored a basket and was
fouled, stepped to the free-
throw line and missed an
attempt. Gordon saved the ball
from going out of bounds,
flipping it back to Thompkins
for a score.
Thompkins scored six points
in the third quarter and finished
with a team-high 16 points.
Tosha Griffin and Courtney
Cummings scored'11 and eight
points, respectively.
The Tornadoes played district
opponent Union County on
Tuesday and will travel to play
district opponents Fort White
on Thursday, Jan. 20, and
Keystone Heights on Tuesday,
Jan. 25. Both games are
scheduled for 7 p.m. following

most of the second quarter and
finished, the game with no
points after averaging 10 points
in the Indians' last five games.
