Crash kills two,


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
Two men died and two
Union County Sheriffs Office
deputies were injured when the
truck the men were in collided
with one of the deputy's car on
Saturday night at
approximately 9:27 p.m.
According to a report from
the Florida Highway Patrol,
Bobby Todd, 45, of Lake
Butler and a yet-to-be
identified passenger were
traveling east on S.W. 42nd
Avenue (also known as Light
Plant Road) when they
collided with Deputy James
"Eddie" Lee. Lee was turning
westbound on 42nd Ave. from
S.R. 121 when the vehicles
met.
Lee's car was struck in the
right front side by the front of
Todd's truck. Both vehicles
came to rest on the opposite
shoulder of S.R. 121. Both
then caught on fire. Deputy
Ken Smith arrived and pulled
Lee from the burning car.


Todd and his passenger were
trapped and expired at the
scene.
A statement from the Union
County Sheriff Jerry
Whitehead said that Lee
suffered a broken femur and
burns to more than 30 percent
of his body. He was
transported to Shands at the
University of Florida by
helicopter. Smith suffered
second degree burns to his
hands and arms. He was
transported to UF by
ambulance.
The events that led up to the
accident began about 45
minutes prior to the incident.
At approximately 8:40 p.m.,
deputies responded to a
disturbance in the 7600 block
of C.R. 241 in Worthington
Springs. According to
Whitehead, the first deputy on
scene learned that there had
been gun shots exchanged by
the two parties creating the

Sheriff's office,DOC help locate missing man


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
A missing individual had
Union' County Sheriff's
deputies conducting a search
of Raiford Friday night.
On Jan. 13, Richard George,
*62, of Raiford was reported
missing after his caregivers
were unable to locate him.
Deputies were called to the
14300 block of S.R. 121 to
locate George.
"We received a call at
approximately 4:30 p.m.
Friday afternoon informing us
he was missing," said UCSO
Sgt. Ray Shuford. "We
immediately contacted the K-9
teams from the Reception and
Medical Center and Union
Correctional Institution to help
us conduct the search."
According to Shuford, two
dog teams along with deputies
from UCSO searched the
woods and immediate area in
an attempt to locate George.
"The sheriff's office also
implemented its new thermal
imaging device to assist in the
search once we lost daylight,"
Shuford said. "The county's
new mobile command unit was
also utilized."
Crews spent more than four
hours combing wooded areas
and local roadways for George


to no avail. The incident ended
when a van, used to transport
residents to the assisted living
facility, was checked.
After an interview with
facility workers, they checked
the transport van he was
transported to the facility in.
There they found Mr. George
hiding in the rear near the
spare tire," Shuford said. "We
have been told that Mr. George.
has hidden in the past. In his
mind, it's a game he plays."
According to Shuford the
van was parked on at the home
of the driver on Douglas Loop,
south of Lake Butler.
,"Facility workers had
trouble making contact with
the van's driver," Shuford said.
"Once they were able to do so,
we .learned of George's
whereabouts."
,Shuford said George's
caregivers believe his mind to
be comparable to that of a 4-
year-old. Once located, George
was returned to the facility.
Officials at the facility said
they would do a more thorough
job of ensuring everyone gets
off the van in the future.

disturbance. One party fled in
a pickup truck.
While patrolling the area,
Smith spotted the truck. Smith,
traveling west on 42nd Avenue,
made a u-turn in order to effect
a traffic stop on the truck.
According to the FHP report,
the truck accelerated as Smith
made the U-turn. Moments
later, the truck struck Lee.
The traffic crash will be
investigated by FHP. The
sheriff's office has called in
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to help them
investigate the disturbance.
Though the cause of the fire
is not known at this time, the
type of patrol car Lee was
driving has been under
investigation for several years.
The Ford Crown Victoria,
Police Interceptor model, has
been involved in more than 10
accidents where, when
impacted from the rear, the
vehicles have caught on fire.
Dan Jarvis, safety policy
public affairs representative
with Ford Motor Company
said he does not believe that
this accident meets the criteria
of the previous incidents.
"This was a side impact
crash and not a rear impact
crash," Jarvis said. "Knowing
very little about the specifics
of the accidents makes it
difficult to say exactly if the
gas tank had anything to do
with the accident, but in no
way does it relate to the
previous criticism of the
vehicles."
Jarvis went on to say that
Ford has built several safety
features into the newer model
Crown Victorias that are on the
road today.
"These vehicles have
shielding around the gas tank
to prevent them from being
punctured," Jarvis said. "In the
2005 model, an optional fire
suppression system was.
offered."
According to Jarvis, the
system is similar to those used
on race cars. Once the system
is activated, either by an on-
board computer or the driver,
the bottom of the vehicle is
flooded with fire suppressing
gases that would extinguish
.-any,, fire. Itsis- unclear if Lee's
car was equipped with the
system.
Jarvis said another reason
S--thie 'Crown Victoria has been
the subject of-investigation is
it's popularity.
"Crown Victorias account
for 85 percent of all the police
-'cruisers on the road today,"
Jarvis said. "With that many
police cars on the road, and
because they are often stopped
along highways, there have
been several incidents where
they have been hit from the
rear at very high speeds."
The traffic crash and fire
will be investigated by FHP.
The sheriff's office has called
in the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement to help
them investigate the
disturbance.

Holdridge sentenced to National Kidney

40 years for burglary Foundation


By JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer .,

An Alachua County man
that committed a series of
armed burglaries in the North
Central Florida area had time
added to an already lengthy
sentence by Union County.
It took six jurors just over an
hour to find Kenneth
Holdridge guilty of one count
of burglary with a firearm, one
count of grand theft in the third-
degree and one count of
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon. Holdridge was
sentenced to a total of 40 years
in prison on all charges.
Holdridge was on trial for
the June 2004 burglary of a
home in Union County. The
home's owner testified that she
left the house and came back
to find that three guns were
missing. She called the Union












. .


Kenneth Holdridge
County Sheriff's Office to
investigate the crime. Capt.
Gary Seay and Investigator
Mac Johns collected evidence
but had no leads for several
months.
Seay testified that while
investigating another case, he
received information about the
burglary.
"A tip led us to look at the
defendant, as a potential
suspect," Seay said., "The
defendant had an accomplice.
Her mother phoned us to tell
us what had happened."
"Holdridge told us he had
committed the burglaries and
that he was responsible," Seay
,said., "We-whad him 'ead Aus
back to the house and show us
what he had done." '
He went on-to tell-the jury '


SHINE looking
for volunteers
in UC
Are you looking for a
flexible volunteer opportunity
that enables you to make a real
difference in the lives of
seniors in your community?
Do you like to-'help.-others

answered yes to these
questions, then the Florida
Department of Elder Affairs
may have the perfect volunteer
position for you.
Volunteers are needed in
Union County for the award-
winning Serving Health
Insurance Needs of Elders
Program. SHINE, is a free
Medicare and health insurance
information and counseling
program that helps elders make
informed decisions. SHINE.
counseling takes place at


that after making contact with
Holdridge, he confessed to the
burglary. Before doing so,
Seay said Holdridge had two
requests.
"He asked us not to take the
case to the statewide
prosecutor and that nothing
happen to Jennifer," Seay said.
Kimberly Bryant, mother of
Jennifer Bryant,' Holdridge's
accomplice, said she called the
sheriff's office when her
daughter told her what she had
done.
"Jennifer knew she would be
in trouble, and she begged me
not to call, but I made the call
anyway," Bryant said.
Assistant State Attorney Bo
Bayer, the lead prosecutor on
the case, then called Robbie
Jenkins to the stand. Jenkins
testified that he had bought one
of the stolen guns from
Holdridge. Jenkins identified
the weapon from a'picture.
Holdridge never took the
stand on his own behalf.
During the sentencing phase of
the trial, Bayer pointed out to
Judge David Reiman that he
would be forced to. sentence
Holdridge according to
guidelines set forth by new
legislation. According to
Bayer, Reiman would have to
follow the guidelines of the
Florida Career Offender Act-.
Reiman agreed and
sentenced Holdridge ,to 30
years on count one, 5 years on
count two and 5 years on count
three.
"The sentences on counts
two and three will run
concurrent 'to count one,"
Reiman said.
Under the act, those
convicted of a crime and being
released from prison less than
three years prior, must serve
the time consecutive to any
other time they already have.
This means that once
Holdridge's current sentence
of 30 years from burglaries in
Baker and Alachua counties
are up,, he'll begin serving the
30 year sentence just imposed.
According to Bayer,
Holdridge still has outstanding
cases in Levy and Bradford
counties.

Program is a charitable

you to turn in your used car,
van, truck or even boat and
very likely receive two

regular dealer trade-in (or from
a holiday song).
You'll get a good feeling
.and you may even get a tax-
deduction. Eighty-four percent
of Americans who donated
vehicles to the National
Kidney Foundation's Kidney
Cars Program last year
itemized their tax returns and
were able to reap a charitable
deduction for their
contribution. And if you want
this possible tax saving,
remember to donate your

A new initiative by the
Manhattanville My Soldier
program, I Heart My Soldier,
asks civilians to send a
heartfelt greeting to a soldier
deployed far from home for
Valentines Day.
The program hopes to ease
the hardship for soldiers who
are spending yet another
holiday away from family and
friends and was designed in
response to the letters and
emails received from soldiers
at www.mysoldier.com that
said the frequency of letters
and packages dramatically
declines after the December
Holidays.
"Traditionally Valentine's
Day is a time to reach out to
loved ones, family and friends"
said My Soldier co-founder,
active duty army sergeant and
Manhattanville College
student Juan Salas. "We are
asking that you consider
adding another group of
recipients to your list. Please
send a valentine to let a soldier
know you are thinking of him,
or to thank her for all she has
done."
While the regular My
Soldier program attempts to
foster an ongoing pen-pal
relationship, I Heart My
Soldier is tailored to those
groups or individuals who
want to send some support
without making a continuing
commitment. Participants may
opt to adopt one soldier or an
entire platoon but must be
willing to send each a care
package that includes the
following items:
oHomemade valentines.
oTraditional Valentines
candy such as sweethearts
'Conversation Hearts and/or
Hershey Kisses and a small
"friendly" gift such as warm
socks or a stuffed animal.
Salas, who spent 14 months
in Iraq, where he saw active
combat duty and was
commended for his part in
saving the life of a child, has

first-hand knowledge of what
such a project means to
soldiers there. His mission was
to "win the hearts and minds of
the Iraqi people. It was long,"
said Salas. "But the thing that
kept me going was getting
letters and cards from families,
kids, boy scouts, students, my
teachers and yes strangers.
Receiving heartfelt messages
from unfamiliar people who
cared about me was uplifting.
Each letter was like a piece of
gold. Something you will keep
for the rest of your life."
Those wishing to participate
are asked to contact
Manhattanville My Soldier
Project Coordinator, Mike
Seminara, before January 23rd
by phone at (914) 323-5439 or
email seminaram@mville.edu
to select a soldier or platoon
for whom to provide Valentine
cards and gifts. The My
Soldier team has assembled a
Hot List with suggested items
for a Valentine Care Package
that stresses the importance of
handmade cards since they
have demonstrate you care
more than a store-bought card
ever could.
"Homemade cards are the
best" Salas said. "Soldiers are
really touched when they get
handwritten cards with
personal messages, or an
individual's artwork. This is
such a simple way to express
gratitude and show support for
our troops while providing
them with something they will
truly appreciate, even cherish."

My Soldier is a program that
puts politics aside and lets U.S.
soldiers know that someone
back home cares. The goal of
the program is to show support


for troops serving in hardship
areas Iraq, Afghanistan,
Africa by establishing pen-
pal relationships with them.
When a person enrolls in the
My Soldier program, they
agree to adopt a soldier. They
receive a starter kit with
guidelines for writing letters to
their deployed United States
Armed Serviceperson and a
red My Soldier bracelet to
publicly show their support for
American troops. The program
is free, but donations are
encouraged from those
participants that can afford it.
Since Manhattanville President
Richard A. Berman and active
U.S. Army Sergeant Juan
Salas-who also is a
Manhattanville student-
launched My Soldier, at a
Veterans' Day press
conference in 2004 over
400,000 participants have
signed up to adopt over
175,000 deployed military
personnel.

NCFA observes
Folic Acid
Awareness
Week
Thd National Council on
Folic Acid (NCFA) will
observe National Folic Acid
Awareness Week, January. 9-
15, 2006, by helping Hispanic
women understand the benefits
of increasing folic acid
consumption as a part of their
regular diet.
Hispanic women in the
United States have 1.5 to 2
times higher risk of delivering
babies with neural tube defects
(NTDs), serious birth defects
of the brain and the, spine, than
non-Hispanic whites. Research
indicates that consumption of
folic acid before and during
early pregnancy can lower the
rate of NTDs by up to 70
percent.
"Helping Hispanic women
and their families to
understand the role folic acid
can play in reducing neural
tube defects is a priority for
this initiative," says Adriane
Griffen, chair of the NCFA.
"We. need to educate all
women, especially Latinas,
that folic acid can help prevent
birth defects such as spina
bifida, which is the most
common, permanently
disabling birth defect. As half
of all pregnancies are
unplanned, all women who'
have started their menstrual
cycle should take folic acid,
whether or not they are
planning to become pregnant.".
The 'U.S. Public Health
Service recommends that all
women of childbearing age
take 400 micrograms of the B
vitamin folic acid daily by
taking a multivitamin and
consuming fortified grains as a
part of a healthy diet.
Increasing consumption of
folic acid among Latina
populations may be the easiest
way to decrease the number of
pregnancies affected by NTDs.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention, Hispanic women


have the lowest reported folic
acid consumption of any racial
or ethnic group, and NTDs
occur with the most frequency
among Latina populations in
the United States.
The National Council on
Folic Acid is a partnership of
national organizations,
associations and state folic
acid councils reaching over
100 million people a year with
the folic acid message.For

acid and National Folic Acid

Among the responsibilities of the Florida Public Service
Commission is the assurance of reliable, affordable
electricity from investor-owned utilities to the state's
consumers. In times of skyrocketing oil and natural
gas prices, reaching consensus on a definition of the
term "affordable" may be a difficult task. On the other
hand, most consumers have a clear idea of what
reliability means: When they flip a switch and the lights
go on, service is reliable.

Absolute reliability is an elusive goal. This is especially
true of a system that encompasses more than 130,000
miles of transmission and distribution lines delivering
service to more than six million consumers. However,
the Public Service Commission has strict accountability
standards for reliability for the state's five investor-
owned electric utilities.

To insure these accountability standards are met, the
Commission's staff routinely compiles data on the
number of interruptions and the causes of outages.
In addition, audits of utilities are conducted to determine
how much companies spend to avoid service,
interruptions and to identify what additional steps can
be taken, when necessary, to prevent further outages.

To understand the methods used by the Commission
to measure electric reliability requires a brief
introduction to the alphabet soup:

MAIFle: Momentary Average Interruption Event
Frequency Index
What it means: This is a measure of the total number
of momentary interruptions relative to the total number
of customers served. A momentary interruption is a
service disruption lasting less than one minute and is
usually far less, like a fraction of a second. These are
the interruptions that cause consumers to have to reset
their digital clocks, but have little or no lasting effects.

CAIDI: CustomerAverage Interruption Duration Index
What it means: A measure of the average length of
interruptions experienced by a company's individual
customers.

SAIDI: System Average Interruption Duration Index.
What It means: A measure of the average length of
interruptions for all the customers served by a company.
In other words, when power is lost, what is the average
length of time it stays off?

SAIFI: System Average Interruption Frequency Index
What It means: A way of measuring the average
frequ'ie'ny df .nterruplions' to the customer, or, put
another way,,how often, on average, is power lost?, ,.

It is probably important to note that catastrophic events,
such as hurricanes, are not included in the indices
noted above. In the case of a documented

meteorological event that adversely affects the
generation of electricity or its. transmission to
consumers, a utility can petition the Commission to
have specific weather-related outages excluded, but
there is no guarantee of an outcome favorable decision
from the Commission.

So now the jargon used in measuring reliability has
been explained, what is the value of these standards
in assessing an electric utility's performance? Using
these reliability indicators in combination with audits
and field assessments by Commission staff can point
to specific areas where more attention by the utility
may be necessary to improve reliability.

Causes of outages' can be identified on a systemic
basis and improvement plans can be developed. A
common finding, for example, is that a lack of
"vegetation management" (commonly referred to as
tree trimming) is responsible for outages along specific
circuits. There may be a number of reasons why foliage
has grown too close to power lines and the fix is
relatively simple.

The extent to which a company routinely inspects. utility
poles to determine which are most susceptible to
deterioration and collapse (another cause for
interruptions) can be discerned from evaluating
reliability indices, as may the need to enhance lightning
protection measures.

Other reasons for interruptions, may be more difficult
to diagnose, such as the animals on poles or along
wires, resulting in shorts and the ensuing interruptions.

Whatever the reason for an interruption or a series of
interruptions, the diagnostic tools exist to assist the
Commission in getting to the root causes of outages.
Once the cause is identified, the Commission can work
with the service provider to develop a plan to restore
the reliable flow of electricity to customers.

Consumers with questions about the reliability of
electric service provided by an investor-owned utility
can contact the Public Service Commission for
answers. The consumer assistance line is 1-800-342,
3552. Assistance is also available via e-mail at

Sunday brought another
traffic fatality on C.R. 225, this
time three miles west of Starke
near N.W. 188th Street.
Around 1:30 in the
afternoon on Jan. 15, Fredrick
Allen Magyari, 54, of Starke
was stationary in the
northbound lane of 225 in a
1998 Dodge pickup.
According to Trooper H.J.
Cichoski and Cpl. James A.
Starling of the Florida
Highway Patrol, Magyari was
waiting to make a left-hand
turn as a group of southbound
motorcyclists passed his
vehicle.
Believing the road was clear,
Magyari began his turn,
pulling into the path of one last
southbound 2003 Harley
ridden by Ralph Eugene
Pollard, 56, of Macclenny.
Pollard's motorcycle struck the
front of Magyari's truck, and
Pollard was ejected and killed.
According to Cichoski,
Pollard was wearing a helmet
and appropriate riding attire.
Magyari sustained possible
injuries in the crash.
Charges are pending further
investigation, Trooper
Cichoski said.


Lawtey PD

vows to be

stricter

after fatality

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD .
Telegraph Editor
.A semi driver was killed in
Lawtey last week in a collision
with another tractor-trailer.
Both vehicles were traveling
eastbound on C.R. 225 the
morning of Jan. 11, according
to the Florida Highway Patrol
report. At approximately 6:39
a.m., the semi driven by
Christopher J. Miller, 28, of
Williston slowed when
approaching the school zone
near C.R. 200A. Ivory W.
Morrig, 42; also of Williston,
,was traveling behind Miller
and failed to slow.
.Morris collided with the rear
of Miller's trailer and was
killed. Miller received no
injuries, according to the-
report.
Major Nathan Blom of the
Lawtey Police Department
.said it was the first double
vehicle accident inside the city
limits in a long time. Lawtey
has always thrived on being a
safe place to live and drive and
this type of accident is
unacceptable, he said.
"Effective immediately, I
have instructed my officers to
take a zero-tolerance stand-
against traffic law infractions.
There will be no more friendly

Citizen soldier

matching

grant funds
Susan Pareigis, director of
the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation, recently
emphasized continued
availability of the Citizen
Soldier Program that allows
private employers to apply for
grants to help them supplement
pay for their employees who
are called to active duty.
Federal law requires that
employers retain the same or
similar jobs, pay and benefits
waiting for employees who are
away on military duty. The
Citizen Soldier Program
provides matching grants to
Florida employers who pay
wages to employees while they
are serving in the United States
Armed Forces Reserves or the
Florida National Guard on
federal active duty.
The Citizen Soldier Program
reimburses private employers
up to one-half of the difference
between the amount of monthly
wages paid before the employee
was called to federal active
duty and the amount of the
employee's active duty
compensation.
"Florida's citizen soldiers
and their families live and
work in a condition of constant
readiness to serve the state and
our nation," said Pareigis. "It

It must be in the water


Voters are perplexed to no end as
the media reveals almost daily the
moral lapses of political office
holders in high positions, especially
the elected and/or appointed leaders
based in Washington, D.C. Since
voters won't knowingly elect
scoundrels to public office and
the election process weeds /,
out people of
questionable
character by
scrutinizing
their. pasts,
t h e
succumbing
to ill-gotten
gains has to
be an environmental quality
in and around the Potomac
River basin adjacent to Foggy
Bottom.
The same theory may well apply to
persons in appointive positions. The
type and character of those employed
by elected officials reflects on the
administrator, and says much about
his or her own views of right and
wrong. To a person of integrity, it is
embarrassing to learn an employee
has allowed-his-or-her moral compass
to go awry.
It has to be in the drinking water.
Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, whose
name has become front page. news
recently, has evidently drank too
much Washington, D.C., water in the
20-plus years he has served in
Congress and his sense of right and
wrong has become skewed, and even
after having been indicted on money
laundering charges, he writes to his


comrades in the House, "During my
time in Congress, I have always acted
in an ethical manner within the rules
of our body and the laws of our land."
The Gainesville Sun (Jan. 12, 2006)
carried the following Associated
Press review in
reference to
DeLay:
"During his six
years as
majority leader,
DeLay enjoyed
at least 48 visits
to golf clubs and
.. s resorts with lush
-_- fairways; 100
flights aboard
""' company planes;
200 stays at
hotels, many world
class, and 500 meals at
restaurants, some averaging nearly
$200 for a.dinner for two." And all
those goodies, AP noted, were paid
for by various campaign and political
action committees, including a
"children's charity" the Texas
Republican created during his rise to
the top of Congress. If that's what
passes for acting "in an ethical
manner," then business-as-usual in
Congress is even more rotten than
most Americans suspect.
There's more. His relationship with
lobbyist Jack Abramoff is another
sordid story unfolding daily in- the
national news. The sad story is there
are others drinking from the same
spigot.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Another stab
at 'intelligent
design'
Dear Editor:
We know what "intelligent
design" is. It is just another
feeble attempt by religious nuts
to do away with the truth of
evolution. They are trying to
get "God's foot in the door,"
but fail to realize the door is
already shut.
If, as your writer suggests,
science has found an
"irreducible complexity," it is
only because we are not
advanced enough yet to explain
what makes up the "irreducible
complexity." Any time science
does not have a complete
answer, instead of saying we
don't know yet, some yawhew
comes along and wants to
insert a God into the equation.
In this case it's called
"intelligent design."
Well, the "intelligent
design" did not do so well did
it? It did take billions of years
for life to evolve as it has and
the casting off of billions of
mutations that did not work
does not speak much to
"intelligent design," but
strongly in favor of random
mutation. I would not like to
meet such an "intelligent
designer" that made so many
mistakes and continues to
do so.
If random mutation of DNA
does not occur to make
complex systems, perhaps
someone who believes in
intelligent design can explain
how flu viruses mutate from
year to year and, if they don't
mutate, why we don't already
have cures for them?
Yes, "Facts are facts and
truth is truth," and evolution is
a fact, intelligent design is
wishful thinking.
If life was not brought into
being by random mutation and
is not pointless, why is it that
no one has any proof of any
kind of a point to life -
except the survivor of the
species?
Are people so arrogantly
stupid that they don't realize
that just one mutated virus
could wipe out the entire
human race? Do these people
really want a God. through .
i q .,,',. .. ,


intelligent design, to be
responsible for that?
Cellular structures that
produce humans are complex
systems, but is not irreducibly
complex, because all humans
do not carry all of the parts of
the system and do still
function. There are many
examples of deformities in
humans "(the loss of a single
part [chemical])," but they
continue to function.
Yes, intelligent design is
"metaphysical" and is
"motivated by religious
views." The fact is that there
are more extinct species than
that which exist today and they
are the experiments of
evolution that did not survive.
If we wish to credit life. to
intelligent design, what does
this say about the designer?
Religious people would say
the point to life is the worship
of God, but God is supposedly


an infinite being. So unless He
has human characteristics, He,
being infinite, would not need
anything, much less worship.
And if He is infinite, He
cannot have human
characteristics because, if He
did, humans could manipulate
Him, thus He would not be
infinite.
Instead of teaching
intelligent design in school,
why don't we require all
students to read Thomas
Paynes' "The Age of Reason"?
And no, Thomas Payne was
not an atheist.

The symposium provides an

Roy's Grocery Store closing after 40-plus years


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
When Carolyn Canova was
watching television on the
Florida-Georgia football game
weekend, Chef Robert was
doing a special on tailgate
food. Canova said he talked to
one man who had the best
grilled sausage Chef Robert
had tasted. The sausage came
from Roy's Grocery Store in
Starke.
Roy Jackson's special recipe
smoked sausage has probably
been all over the United States,
carried or sent to former area
residents by family members
for many years. At the end of
this month, however, Roy's
sausage, may be a fond
memory.
Roy's Grocery is going out
of business after Roy and
Clifford Jackson spent more
than 40 years serving
customers in this area. The
mom and pop-type grocery
store is just not bringing in
enough money to support Kyle
and Karen Jackson, who have
been running it in recent years.
The store allowed Roy and
Clifford to raise a family of
five in comfort, but times have
changed.
Roy and Clifford came to
Starke from Madison in 1960.
The two worked for Southern
Georgia Grocery, running the
Suwannee Store in Starke
when it was located where
Domino's Pizza is today. The
Suwannee Store later moved to
412 West Call Street, next to
what is now the rear of
Denmark Furniture.
In 1973, the couple bought
the business from Southern
Georgia Grocery and renamed
it Roy's Grocery. It stayed in
that location until May of 1983
when they bought property
across from the old light plant
on Call Street and built a new
building.


In 19918 the business was
turned over to the children,
first Rodney and then ,Kyle.
Although many people still
bought their meat and, of
course, their sausage at Roy's,
the convenience and selection
of the larger stores lured a lot
of business away. It was no
longer enough to support a
growing family.
The decision came with
tears, but it had to be made.
Roy and Clifford were at a
point where retirement was
desirable and well deserved.
The children just couldn't
make a go of it.
"We retired," said Clifford.
"We sold the building."
The building has been sold
to Norman's Heating and Air,
which is run by a nephew of
the Jacksons' and located next
door to Roy's Grocery.
"We wanted to say how
much we appreciated our
customers through the years,"
said Clifford. "We're going to
miss them and we appreciate
their years of patronage. We're
not going to miss the work, but
we are going to miss the
people."
Roy and Clifford's store,
whether named the Suwannee
Store or Roy's Grocery, has
always been a place where
neighborhood people went to
talk. Roy and Clifford and
their employees have always
been counted as friends by the
customers, not just business
owners and service people.
Steve Denmark is the owner
of Denmark Furniture, a
neighbor of the store and
friend of the Jacksons' for
many years. He said Roy's was
the place you could find
people gathered. Retirees
would sit back near the meat
counter, eat peanuts and drink
Coke. One would often whittle.
and the shavings would join
the sawdust that was on the


floor at that time.
"You went there because
they treated everyone like they
were special," said Denmark.
"That's just not done anymore
in a lot of cases."
If your grandmother was
sick and couldn't get out of the
house, all she had to do was
call Clifford. Clifford or one of
the employees would write
down her grocery order and
assemble it from the shelves.
Then Roy or Clifford would
put it in the car and drive it out
to her. If your grandmother
offered to pay them extra, the
money was refused.
You could also go into the
store without your checkbook,
pick up a few things and put it
on your charge account to be
paid later. The accounts were
kept in ticket books in a
drawer. The credit approval
process was a conversation.
That wasn't in the good old
days 40 years ago-that system
has remained in effect to
today.
People on fixed incomes
found that system very
convenient, because if they
didn't get their check until
next week, they could' still get
groceries this week and pay for
them when the check came.
There were also times when
Roy and Clifford heard about a
house fire or a family that had
fallen on unexpected hard
times. Clifford would pack the
box of groceries and Roy
would deliver it. Those orders
did not get written down in the
ticket books.
If you were in a real hurry to
get somewhere, you could also
call Clifford and have her pack
your grocery order for you.
Then you could just run ,into
the store and pick it up.
Denmark said Roy's wasn't
just a store, it was a part of the'
community. The Jacksons'
eldest daughter, Karen, was

often found sitting on the
counter in a baby carrier while
Clifford helped out at the store.
When Rodney was born, he
could often be found lying on a
pallet of soft blankets arranged
on a 50-pound bag of dog food
near the counter.
"When customers walked by
as they were shopping, they'd
tuck the blanket back in
around him," said Denmark.
"You won't find any place
like that today. It's a way of
life that is just disappearing,"
said Denmark sadly.
Denmark talked about
purchasing meat from Roy's
by the quarter or the half of


beef and having it cut to order
and wrapped in freezer paper.
The store closed on
Wednesday, a tradition that
started when stores all through
downtown closed on
Wednesday afternoon. That
was the day the sides of beef
were cut to order at Roy's.
You could come in and watch
them do it, if you wanted.
"Of course, the sausage is
what they're most well-known
for," said Denmark. The store
had a smokehouse built behind
it and if you went in on the
right day, you could watch
them grind the meat behind the
counter in the open butcher


shop. They always mixed their
own fresh sausage and smoked
their own link sausage-hot or
mild.
The Starke Kiwanis Club
sells sausage dogs at the
Bradford Fair every year. The
club bought the sausage at
Roy's every year. "Even the
ride workers and concession
stand people from inside
would come buy our sausage
dogs instead of the ones they
sold because they said they
were so good," said Denmark.

ROY'S
Continued from p. 6B
someone to call Roy and say,
"I'm going to visit some
family in Virginia, I need
about $100 worth of sausage to
take with me." Roy's sausage


is extremely well-traveled. It is
known to have been to
California and to Maine and to
most points in between.
One resident reports that an
aunt of hers stopped speaking
to her for almost a year when
she came for a visit and forgot
the sausage.


Special service was the
name of the game at Roy's and
it was widely known. Roy said
a group of Greek-Americans in
Jacksonville lamented that
they could not get authentic
Greek sausage in this area.
They knew someone in Starke
who knew Roy. They gave
Roy the recipe and once every
few months he would make
them a big batch of sausage.
One lady liked hers with
extra garlic. She would grind
the_ extra garlic herself and
send it to Roy. He made her
batch separate.
Roy's is also the place the
Starke Kiwanis Club went
when it needed to order 500
sides of ribs for a fundraiser
set Jan. 21. Most organizations
in town went to Roy's when
they needed 500 hamburgers
pattied out in quarter-pound
patties or enough hot dogs to
feed four Girl Scout Troops.
Darlene Lee was in Roy's last
week to order hot dog and
hamburger buns by the case so


she could organize a cookout
for a skydiving club in
Gainesville.
"It's sad that they're closing,
but good that they can retire,"
she said. "We want to see them
rest and enjoy life."
Lee almost literally grew up
in Roy's since she was the best
friend of the Jacksons' eldest
daughter, Karen. She still lives
just down the road from the
Jacksons.
Canova was one of the first
customers Roy and Clifford
had when they came to town in
the 60s.
"When they told me they
were going to close, I was just
sick about it," said Canova. "I
asked them what we were
going to do for sausage. I've
never tasted sausage that good
anywhere else. I've bought it
all these years"
She said she always took a
big order of sausage to
Connecticut with her when she
went to visit family. Roy
would package it in bun-size


links and put it in freezer bags
for her.
"Roy's is like an
institution," she said,
Canova also noted the
specially-seasoned pork roasts
Roy would make for
customers. He would take the
bone out and season it with his
own special recipe and tie it up
ready for the oven. All you had
to do was add heat. He also
had a special recipe for
meatloaf. You could buy the
meatloaf already mixed with
ground beef, pork sausage and
seasonings.
"When my kids were young,
I always bought my fresh eggs
there by the flat. We went
through a lot of them," said
Canova. She always had her
fryer chickens cut up there
because she could order extra
giblets and Roy would give her
exactly the amount she needed.
Roy's was also known for
selling homemade cane syrup.
For years, the Jacksons had a
farm and chicken houses in


Bradford County. (Those fresh
eggs Canova talked about were
really fresh.) Roy grew
sugarcane on the farm and
would make syrup once a year.
Customers and their children
often got invited out for the
cane grinding. They would get
there early in the morning and
find Roy's sausage and
biscuits for breakfast.
The cane would be ground
and syrup cooked down and
bottles of it sold in the store or
given away to friends or
customers, who were often as
not the same people.

"Roy liked to preserve
things the way they used to
be," said Denmark. "He hated
to see things like cane
grindings and crackling
cookouts become things of the.
past, so he kept doing them for
years. Roy's is really going to
be missed."


Clifford and Roy Jackson stand in the meat market of
the store they operated in Starke for nearly 50 years.
The store will close at the end of the month.

Silent charity
auction offers

items at the

right price

BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer

It'll be better than the Price
Is Right.
Major prizes like trips and
artwork will be on the auction
block at the Bradford County
Education Foundation's annual
silent auction. All of them
will be awarded to bidders for
more than reasonable prices.
The auction is held in
conjunction with the annual
banquet of the North Florida
Regional Chamber of
Commerce, set for Saturday,
Jan. 28, at post headquarters at
Camp Blanding.
People donate items for the
auction, so any bid received is
total profit for BCEF. The
bidders get the item for a
lower price than they would
have paid for it outright and
BCEF gets enough money to
fund mini-grants for local
teachers.
Tickets for the banquet are
already sold out, but
'community members can still
. ,,elp support BCEF b.
donating more items and
services to be placed in the
auction.
Michelle Everson, BCEF
executive director, reports that
a number of interesting items
.have already been donated.
Three beautiful metal
sculptures were donated by
SMI Joist. A handpainted
bowl filled with a variety of
gift items was donated by the
studio of local artist Christie
Allen. Several trip packages,
including some to Walt
Disney World, are also
included in the auction.


Signed memorabilia from
Gator Head Coach Urban
Meyer and Seminole Head
Coach Bobby Bowden will
also be up for bid.
More auction items are
needed, however. Gift items
like. jewelry, artwork,
appliances, etc., and coupons
for services like makeovers,
lawn care, etc., are normally
popular items at the auction.
"Our goal this year is
$15,000," said Everson. "We
raised more than $14,000 last
year and we were able to fund
almost every mini-grant
application we had."
Mini-grants are funds
awarded to local classroom
teachers. The funds pay for
materials to provide special
educational activities for the
students in their classes. All
of the funds directly benefit
local students and local
teachers.
Contact Everson at (904)
364-7524 or via e-mail at
bcef@alltel.net, if you have an
item to donate. Pickup of
items can be arranged.

amount to increase the
endowment fund. The club
already has an endowment fund
for the two scholarships it
now provides.
An endowment fund acts
like an investment account.
The original amount of
money, in this case $40,000,
would not be depleted. The
scholarships would be paid for
by the interest earned on that
amount.
"It's a perpetual fund," said
Denmark. "We can go on
providing scholarships for


years from that same money."
Denmark said plans are for
the club to hold fundraisers
that will bring in $5,000 per
year for the next three years.
Individual club members are
pledging funds for the
remaining $5,000.
The first fundraiser set for
this purpose is the sale of
smoked sides of ribs that is
currently going on.
Denmark, an accomplished
barbecuer, will be in charge of
smoking the ribs that will be
available for pickup on


Saturday, Dec. 21, between 11
a.m. and 2 p.m. in the parking
lot at Community State Bank
on U.S. 301 in Starke.
A whole side of ribs will be
-sold -for $16. Tickets are on
sale now from Kiwanis
members or at Denmark
Furniture, Noegel's Auto,
Sales, Town and Country
Ford-Mercury or Trinity
Mortgage.
"We will have some sides of
ribs available to be sold on
Jan. 21, but they will only be
available until we run out,"


said Denmark. "Most of the
ribs will be pre-sold and will
be ready for pick up by ticket
holders."
Buying_a ticket is the only'
way to ensure ribs will be
available.
Tickets can also be
purchased from members of
the Bradford High School Key
Club, the Bradford Middle
School Builder's Club or the
Sunshine Industries AKtion
Club. These clubs are
sponsored by Starke Kiwanis
and are aimed at teaching the


concept of civic service to
young people in the
community.
A total of $3 for every
ticket sold by one of the youth
clubs will go to the coffers of
that club to fund activities for
the members.
Denmark said a total of 150
slabs of ribs have been ordered
and he expects to sell every
one.

Starke
Recreation
Department
Is registering
for baseball
The Starke Recreation
Department is currently
registering players through
Friday, Feb. 17, for this year's
baseball season.
Children will be placed in
one of four leagues: rookies
(ages 6-8), minors (9-10),
majors (11-12), Babe Ruth-_
(13-15) and Babe Ruth (16-
18). The determining date for
the child's age is April 30.
Children 8 or 10 may play in
the next higher league only if
they have -exceptional skills
and a parent signs a Waiver.
The cost of registration is
$55 ($65 after Feb. 17), plus
there is a $1 fee if a child has
never played before to cover
the c6st of a Babe Ruth birth
card.
Also, if a child has never
.played before, a birth
certificate must be shown at
.the time of registration.
Children must live in any
area of-the county but Lawtey,
Brooker or -Hampton to play
with the Starke division, or
they must attend a Starke
school. If a child played in
either Lawtey, Brooker_ or
Hampton last year, he or she
has the option to play in that
same area this year. However,
once a child plays with the
Starke league, he or she must
stay in this area to play
baseball unless he or she
. moves.
Players will need to
purchase a pair of baseball
pants. Rubber cleats or tennis
shoes may be worn in the
rookie, minor and major
leagues. It is suggested that
Babe Ruth players wear rubber
or metal cleats.

session of the Florida Senate in
March.
Pierce will be responsible
for carrying notes and
messages around the capitol
and will also work one-on-one
with a legislator. He doesn't
know which one yet, however.
In addition to his duties, he
will participate in a mock
session of the Florida
Legislature to get a first-hand
look at how bills are passed,
debates are held, etc.
"It's a great opportunity to
learn more about state and
local government," said Pierce.
He was also nominated to be
an alternate messenger in the
Florida House of
Representatives. That would
mean he would act as
messenger if another student
could not go. Taking the week
off from school and then
possibly not getting to act as
messenger to the House
seemed a little risky.
"I could do both the Senate
and the House," said Pierce,
"but I'd have to take off from
school for too long."
His week as Senate page and
the possible Week as House
messenger would both occur in
March. On the second week in
April, Pierce will be in
Orlando once again, running
for state president of the
FBLA.


Signups for
Lawtey
baseball begin
Saturday
The Lawtey Athletic
Association will be holding its
annual baseball signups for the
2006 season beginning
Saturday, Jan. 21, 9 a.m.-2
p.m., at the Lawtey
Community School baseball
field.

Pierce plans to attend Santa
Fe Community College and
then transfer to the University
of North Florida in
Jacksonville to major in
political science. He's keeping
a career in politics firmly in his
sights.
That was not always the
case, however. When he
entered BHS as a freshman, he
did not plan to join many clubs
or be very active in
extracurricular events. FBLA
changed all that.
Pierce became a member of
the group when it was formed
three years ago.
"To be honest, I did it
because they told me about the
field trips they were going to
take,"said Pierce. "Once I was
in, though, my self esteem
started improving and I got the
guts to run for parliamentarian
(of FBLA). When .1 saw how
well that went, I ran for district
vice-president."
Pierce was elected to serve
as vice-president for the FBLA
district, which encompasses 10
clubs in Bradford County,
Hawthorne, Newberry and all
of Alachua County.
He is currently district
president and has held most of
the elected positions in the
local chapter at one time or
another.
Pierce said his passion for
politics actually started before
BHS and FBLA, however.
"Back in middle school, my
teachers always commented
about how they enjoyed the


leagues: rookie (6-8 years old),
minor (9-10), major (11-12)
and Dixie boys (13-15).
Determining date for age is
April 30.
Cost for returning players is
$55 and $56 for new players.
This price includes a player's
uniform, which consists of
pants, shirt, belt, socks and hat.
All new players must have
birth certificate verification
and provide a valid 911
address (no P.O. boxes will be
accepted).

to have," he said. "FBLA just
helped bring me into itmore. I
have a deep passion for FBLA
since it brought me to where I
am."
Pierce is also involved in
helping out with Student

projects, although he does not


hold an office. He is a member
of the student advisory

part-time jobs in addition to
going to school. Pierce works
at Powell's Drive-In and Best
Western. "I don't really have a
lot of spare time," he said
when asked about hobbies.
"Overall, I consider myself
very blessed," said Pierce.
"My mom taught me to go
after what I want and that
when I say something, I have
to stand firm on it. I plan to
stand on what I say, no matter
what anyone else says."
Pierce said his parents also
taught him a faith in God that
has helped him throughout his
life. "I plan to remain God-led.
He is my higher power," said
Pierce.
"My whole family has been
very supportive. Everyone's
excited about my being a
Senate page."
The family does need some
financial assistance in making
sure Pierce can spend the week
in Tallahassee. His mother will
go along as chaperone. Pierce
said they need about $700 for
transportation, food and a
week's stay near the capitol-
and for that navy blue blazer
he will be wearing.
Anyone who would like to
help prov-ide funding for
Pierce's week as a Senate page
can call him at (904) 364-

Hartley at (904) 966-6080.

soccer

goes 1-1-1
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Keystone Heights boys
soccer team experienced all
three possible outcomes of a
match last week after tying
Newberry, defeating Fort
White and losing to Oak Hall.
Keystone (7-8-4 prior to Jan.
17) began the week with a 2-
all tie against visiting
Newberry on Jan. 9.
The Indians scored the first
goal of the match in the 10th
minute when midfielder
Brandon Waters, off of an
assist from Justin Hedding,
fired a shot from 30 yardsout
that got past the Newberry
goalie. However, Newberry.
was awarded a penalty kick in
the .17"h minute and, Ryan.
Ecker converted, tying the
game at 1-all, which was how,
the score stood at the half. ,
Keystone head coach Trevor
Waters said his team picked up
its intensity in the second half,
but missed out on many
scoring opportunities.

would not waste his
opportunity in the 44"1 minute,
taking a pass from Al Duren
and sending it into the net for a
2-1 lead.
The Indians dominated play
in the half with more than 25
shots on goal, but Newberry's
Matthew Parrish made the
most of a second opportunity,
heading in a rebound to tie the
score.
Waters said the end result
was not indicative of the
strong effort and great play the
Indians displayed on both sides
of the ball. He added that
sweeper Austin Bennett, with
his tremendous size, speed and
work effort, showed why he's
one of the best defenders in
north Florida.
On Jan. 10, the Indians
proved the third time's the
charm, finally defeating
visiting Fort White 4-0.
Keystone played Fort White
twice previously, settling for a
tie in the first matchup and
losing the second.
Waters said the defense was
the key in winning the third
match. Bennett, Sam Nadler,
Greg Oakley and Nick
Salsbery played extremely
well in limiting Fort White to
seven shots on goal, Waters
'said.
Dustin Hayre scored
Keystone's first goal in the
seventh., minute off of an assist
from Brad Gober.
That was the only score of
the half, but Waters said his
team went out in the second
half and played its best soccer
of the season.

said it was a better showing
than the one the Tornadoes had
in a tournament at Clay High
School Jan. 6-7. Not one
Bradford wrestler placed at
that tournament, which. Porter
described as probably one of
the toughest in the area.
It was a tough field for a
young Bradford team to
contend with. Most of the
Tornado wrestlers are ninth-
and 10th-graders.
"It's been a big learning
experience (for us) this year,"
Porter said.
Following the Clay
tournament, Bradford traveled
to Gainesville for a match
against Eastside on Jan. 12.
The Tornadoes had four
wrestlers earn wins by pinning
their opponents, but the host
Rams won the match 50-24.
The Tornadoes will be

Buchholz High School in

Middleburg did not provide
much of a hurdle for the
Biadford girls basketball team
to clear in improving its
district record to 8-0 as the
Tornadoes won 59-13 on Jan.
12.
Bradford held the Broncos
to just one field goal-which
occurred with 3:35 remaining
in the second quarter-and
three points overall in the first
half.
Meanwhile, the Tornadoes
scored 33 points in the first
half, led by Keita Goodman's
10 points.
Tosha Griffin and Jerica
Warren each had a 3-pointer in
the first quarter as Bradford
built a 17-0 lead.
A rebound score by
Goodman early in the second
quarter put the Tornadoes up
19-0 before Middleburg finally
scored on a free throw at the
6:06 mark.
Middleburg later added a
field goal, but that was it for
the Broncos in the half as
Bradford reeled off 12 straight
points. Destiny Bass started
the run with a basket and
subsequent free throw, which
was then followed by a 3-
pointer by Ebony Smith.
A rebound score by Griffin
put the Tornadoes up 29-3
before Goodman closed out the
half with two consecutive
baskets.
Bradford's Khalaa Hill

Seven area high school
seniors will have one more
chance to line up on the
football field before,
hopefully, doing so in college
at this Saturday's 17t" annual
Florida Shrine Bowl, which
will kick off at 2:30 p.m. at
Orange Park High School.
The all-star game compiles
some of the best football
players in north Florida,
putting them on South and
North teams.
This year's South team will
feature seven players from
Bradford, Keystone Heights
and Union County high
schools. The defensive unit
will include Bradford
linebacker Shauntell Carter,
Keystone lineman Lans
Hardin, Keystone defensive
back Michael Williams, Union
linebacker Brendan Odom and
Union lineman Willie Oliver.
Bradford running back
SJmes amison and Union tight

Khalaa Hill scored six of her
team-high 14 points in the
final 1:50 to help the Bradford
girls basketball team hold off a
late Keystone Heights rally
and leave the gym with a 42-
41 win on Jan. 13.
Hill scored all but two of her
points in the second half as the
Tornadoes improved to 14-0.
Bradford built an eight-point
lead as Keystone (13-7) missed
six of its first seven shot
attempts in the fourth quarter.
Tosha Griffin had a basket and
free throw for Bradford before
adding another field goal
following her own steal,
putting the Tornadoes up 35-
26.
Jessica Whitfield put an end
to the Indians' drought,
rebounding her own missed
shot and scoring to pull the
Indians within 35-28.
Bradford's Jerica Warren
made a free throw before
Keystone's Kellie Spaulding
scored to make it a siA-point
game.
That was the first of three
consecutive baskets for the
Indians. A steal by Megan
Poupard led to a layup by
Spaulding, which was
followed by a basket by
Whitfield to make the score
36-34.
Spaulding then came up
with a steal, but the Indians
could not convert offensively.
They then watched Bradford
go back up by six after
consecutive baskets by Hill.
Turnovers did not help
Keystone., The Indians
committed five in the quarter,
including one on a three
seconds call just prior to Hill's
layup that put Bradford .up 40-
34.
Spaulding scored a basket
on an assist from Poupard,
then came up with a steal.
However, Whitfield could not
handle the pass frpm
Spaulding, losing the ball out

of bounds underneath the
Bradford basket. Hill
responded by scoring
Bradford's last basket.
Keystone had little time to
work with after that. Whitfield
scored with 16 seconds
remaining to make it a four-
point game. The Indians then
fouled Griffin, who missed the
front end of a l-and-1
opportunity at the foul line.
Karlyn Reddish made a 3-
pointer for Keystone with four
seconds left in the game for the
final one-point margin.
Hill was the only Bradford
player to score in double
figures. Griffin finished the


game with eight points.
Spaulding led all scorers-
with 19 points, while Whitfield
added eight.
Bradford was able to build a
five-point lead early in the
game after a first-quarter
basket by Keita Goodman, but
the Tornadoes could never pull
away from the Indians.
A long jumper by Abby,
Knabb pulled the Indians
within 13-10 early in the
second quarter, but Bradford's
Tosha Newman answered with
a 3-point basket.

foul trouble in the first quarter,
returned in the second and
scored five consecutive points
on a basket and three free
throws to make it a one-point
game. A basket by Kim
Russell later tied the game at
17-all.
A Goodman free throw and
a rebound score by Newman
put Bradford up 20-17, but the
Indians sent the game into the
half tied at 20-all after a free
throw by Russell and a basket
by Heather Martin with 25
seconds left on the clock.
Bradford was leading by two
in the third quarter when its
defense came up with four
consecutive steals. However,
only one of those led to a
score. Hill's rebound putback
after a steal by Griffin put the
Tornadoes up 28-24.
Spaulding had a chance to
cut into that lead with a trip to
the free throw line, but she
missed both attempts.
However, she w,.,ld steal the-
ball on the other end of the
floor and go in for a score.
Spaulding then rebounded a
Bradford miss, but the Indians
could not tie the game before
the end of the quarter, turning
the ball over instead.
That gave the Tornadoes the
final shot of the third quarter
and Destiny Bass delivered,

and scoring for a 30-26

staff. Bartram Trail's Darrell
Sutherland is the team's head
coach.
Vic Papa, the game's
executive director, said the
game is a chance for players to
make a last-minute impression
on college scouts and coaches.
However, the game has a much
greater cause than that.
"First and foremost, our
objective for the upcoming
game is to generate
contributions for the game's
cause-the Shriners Hospitals
for Children," Papa said.
Net proceeds from this game


will help support the network
of 22 Shriners Hospitals for
Children, all of which provide
free medical care to children
under 18 who have orthopedic
problems as well as spinal cord
and burn injuries.
Two 9-year-old children
who have received care at
Shriners Hospitals will serve
as the game's queen and king:
Katelynn Childress and Phillip
Wetherington. They will be
recognized during a pregame
ceremony, which begins at 2
p.m.
During the last 16 years, the
Florida Shrine Bowl has raised
more than $360,000 for
Shriners Hospitals.
