Times Staff Writer
The mother of Ashley Keen
and Miranda Finn, two of the
seven children killed in a Jan.
25 accident, have filed a
wrongful death lawsuit against
the driver of the truck and the
company he worked for.
In her suit, filed on Feb. 8,
Amanda Lee Scott alleges that
Alvin Eugene Wilkerson, 31,
of Jacksonville negligently
operated and/ or maintained
the tractor tailer he was driving
causing it to crash into the
1993 Pontiac Bonneville that
Keen and Finn were
passengers in.
It goes on to allege that
Crete Carrier Corp. failed to
adequately supervise
Wilkerson. According- to the
suit, Crete negligently retained
Wilkerson due to his failure to
comply on a consistent basis
with statutes or federal
regulations that pertained to
him operating a tractor trailer.
It also states the company
knew, or should have known,
-Wilkerson was unfit to operate
the truck.
According to the suit, at the:
time of the crash. Wilkerson
was in, violation of Federal
Motor Carrier Safety,
Regulation 395. The regulation
limits the number of hours.
drivers are able to operate a
truck in any given period.
1,The Siit Is asking Crete to
*turn. over. more than 70.
documents related 'to
Wilkerson's employ ment % ith
the compan.y. The requests


range frdm his employment
application all the way up to
the company's.driver operating
procedures.
The suit does not specify
what, if any, damages are
being.-sought. The suit was
filed by Lance Avera of the
law firm of Avera & Avera of
Gainesville. According to
Lance Avera, the suit has been
filed to find answers.
"We filed this law suit to
answer how and why this
accident occurred," Avera said.
The girls were killed along
with their five cousins. Nicole
"Nikki" Mann, 15, Elizabeth
Mann, 15, Johnny Mann, 13,
Heaven Mann, 3, and Anthony
Lamb, 20 months, were killed
when the truck Wilkerson was
driving slammed into the car
the children were riding in.
After the truck impacted the
car, it pushed the car into the
back of a Union County school
bus, injuring nine students and
the bus driver.
A preliminary investigation
by the National Transportation
Safety Board relieved that,
except for a short nap,
Wilkersonr had been awake for'
34 straight hours. The
investigation also found that
Wilkerson had no; evidence of
drugs or alcohol in his blood.
In addition to Scott, the girls'
.fathers, David Finn and
Rodney Keen, are also named
as claimants in the lawsuit.

participate in FFA Week
'activities at the local and state
livel.
S FFA members have
S opportunitiess to attend national
S leadership conferences,

classroom instruction and
-hands-on learning, agricultural
science education and FFA are
making a positive difference in
the lies of students everyday.
The focus of National FFA
Week is to tell America about
ihe great opportunities
available for all youth. One of
ihe many programs in which
-FFA youth can explore career
-opportunities was begun this
year at Union County High
School.
The Agricultural
communications class allows


students to learn about the
various aspects of the media-
industry. Radio, newspaper.
and television are just a few of
the many facets of the media
industry that are explored in
the class.
FFA advisor Charlotte
Emerson not only started the
class, but wrote the curriculum :
for it as well.
This :is really a pilot
program for the -state,"
Emerson said. "If the program
does well here, the state hopes
to expand it to other schools
across Florida."
The idea for the program
came from Emerson's
experience as a broadcaster.
For the past several years she
and fellow- agricultural teacher
and FFA advisor David 'Hariris
have given listeners the play-
by-plav of the Union County
Tigers football team.
"I thought what a great
experience it would be for my
students to be able to do the
same thing," Emerson said.
WUCR owner Paul Lewis
said he feels the program is a
wonderful opportunity for the
students.
'I. agreed to help Charlotte
because I know this is a
wonderful opportunity to help
educate our young people in an
area they would not otherwise
be able to," Lewis said. "
The class' most well known
aspect is a 15-minute radio.


show it produces each school
morning. The show. which airs
on WUCR 107.9, informs
listeners of local events, school
news as well as national and
entertainment news. The entire
show, from "production to on-
air talent, is the .sole
responsibility of the students.
In the future, Emerson and


Lewis hope to be able to
expand the scope of the
program.
"We are' looking, toward
students being disc jockeys
and:program directors in the
near future," Lewis said. "Who

Continued from p. 1A

"It upgraded, and made more
stringent, the structure
requirements of mobile
homes," Tillis said. "Along
with that it established Wind
Zones I, II and III. We happen
to be in Wind Zone II."
According to Tillis, this
means a home must be able to
withstand winds of 100 miles
per hour.
"All site built homes must
meet this same requirement,"
Tillis said. "By referencing the
federal and state building
codes in this resolution, I have
added any mobile, modular or
manufactured home placed in
Lake Butler must meet this
.same requirement. What this
resolution says is that if a
home does not meet Wind
Zone II requirements, it can't
be moved in the city of Lake
Butler."
The resolution will not affect
those homes already in place.
"If there are mobile homes
in the city currently, that are
constructed prior to that date,
they can remain where they
are," Tillis said. "This is not a
retroactive item, just like any
other law that's been passed."
While they can stay where
they are at. the moment,
residents won't be permitted to
move nonconforming homes to
other locations in the city.
"If, for example, somebody
felt like they wanted to move
that home from one lot to
another, it would prevent that,"
Tillis said. "If that mobile
home is moved or relocated,
within the city limits, it must
meet the wind zone two
requirements."
Tillis said that citizens did
have an option if their home
did not meet the requirement,
but they wanted to move it into
the city.
"You can hire. an architect or
registered civil engineer and
have modifications made to
adapt that home, to a Wind
Zone II requirement," Tillis
said. "If they. can certify it
meets federal and state
requirements it can be moved
in."
Tillis told commissioners he
did not feel this would be a
popular option.
"I'm sorry to say to do that
would be more than the
rollingg woujild ..be., worth,.',
Tillis said. "So, voluntarily
moving one from' one lot to
another is not likely to occur."
'Tillis said he felt the
regulations would stand up to
any challenges they might
face.
"I e-mailed the regulations-
/to (City Attorney) John
(Maines) and he didn't see any
- problems with them," Tillis
said w"He felt like it was a
reasonable approach." '
.These may .be the first
regulations of their kind in the
state.
"I could not find anyone else
-who had these types of
regulations that dealt with this
issue," ..Tillis said. "'If we deal,
with it in this way, I feel there
would be no way to challenge
them."
According. to Tillis, the
regulations come on the heels
of requests' of several mobile
owners to move them into the
city
"We want to ensure the
people renting'them will be
safe inside them," Tillis said.
"This is the primary reason for
this resolution."
In the commissioner's
agendas, Tillis included a
report from the state Bureau.of
Mobile Home and .,RV
Construction Division of
Motor Vehicles that showed
how well homes with the
requirements faired. The report
was complied after the 2004
hurricane season.
According to the report, of
the 29,275 homes the report
looked at that were built with
the post 1994 regulations, none
sustained serious damage.
More than 3,500 that were
built prior to 1994, were
destroyed or not repairable.
"That's remarkable," Tillis
said. "It's almost unbelievable,
but those are the facts from the
report." ,
The resolution went into-
effect Feb. 13.


Property owners for new CVS Poker run to
benefit.
agree to annexation hospitalized


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer

After much debate on
whether or not property had to
be annexed into the city limits
to receive water and sewer
service, the owners of the
property have voluntarily
agreed to proceed with it.
On Feb. 13, Medlink
Management Services, owners
of a 4.1-acre tract of land just
east of Lake Butler Hospital,
petitioned the city 'of Lake
Butler to annex the property
into the city limits. Medlink is
the same company that owns
Lake Butler Hospital.
"This parcel is currently
under contract for the proposed
development of a new CVS
pharmacy," said city manager
Richard Tillis.
Ordinance 06-01 went
through it's introduction and
first reading Monday night.
The petition requests that the
city voluntarily annex the
parcel into the city.
Commissioners voted 4-0 to
approve the measure. The issue
made it through the council'.
with little fanfare, unlike the
discussion that took place at
the. city's January meeting.
At the meeting, there was
some question as to whether or
not the property owners were
required to annex property into
the city limits in.order to. get
water and sewer service..
"The engineer was
communicating with different
people and everything seemed
to be going fine," Tillis said at
the January meeting. "But at.
some point in time, he met up
with somebody who seems to
think they might not have to do
that."
Tillis said the company felt
that it did not have to annex
the property into the city to get
the service.
"They said that they felt like .
we could not legally make
them annex the property into
city to get water and sewer,"
Tillis said. "But I know it's
always been a policy; well, at
least since I've been here, to
annex a property .to get the
service." :
... Tillis told c6mmissiorters he.
put the item on last month's
agenda so that the board could
reaffirm its stand o4 the policy.
"I know we did something at
one time to make this a
policy," Tillis said. "It's just
been so long ago that I can't
Find where we made. it a
policy."
Tillis then told
commissioners he felt that this
was the best approach for the
situation.
"This has been our approach
for several years," Tillis said.
"I believe this to be in the best
interest of the growth of the
city and the utility system."
Tillis told the council he
indicated to CVS that it would
be responsible for putting i.n
the necessary hardware to
receive water service...' .
"I conveyed to them that
they would be responsible for
putting in their own lines and a
pump station," Tillis said. "I
did point out to them that, if
They annexed, the city would
be in a position to apply for
economic development grants
to assist them based on jobs
created. We can't do that if'
they stay out in the county."
Tillis told the board that he
felt he needed the board to rule
on the matter.
"In the letter I got from
CVS, it asked if I had anything
that I could show them' that
this was a policy," Tillis said.
"What I could convey, is that
the board voted and that it
reaffirmed this policy."
Commissioner Lynn Bishop
.made the motion that the city
;reiterate that it is the city's
policy to expect annexation
into the city by any entity that
desires to receive water and
wastewater utility service.
'Tillis went on to discuss the
benefits CVS would receive if
it annexed the property.

limits is outside. our fire

service area," Tillis said. "I
would think that an ISO 4
rating would heavily offset the
2.25 mills they are going to
have to pay in property tax."
Tillis was referring to the
city's rating it has with
insurance companies. The
lower an ISO rating an area
has, the less many residents
pay for homeowner's
insurance. The ratings are
based on the amount of fire
protection service in a given
area. To compare these ratings,
any homeowner outside the
city limits in Union County has
a rating of 9. It is the highest
rating the ISO gives.
Tillis also pointed out that
the city has no way to recoup
capital outlay for anyone not
inside the city limits.
"We have no impact fees, we
simply have the cost of the
service," Tillis said. "If a water
customer comes into the city,
then at least there is some
other revenue collected to help
offset some of the costs to the
city."
Tillis said this fact was
illustrated in customers who
have water service, but whose
property is not annexed.
"These customers pay a 25
percent upcharge for service,"
Tillis said. "But that doesn't'do
anything to replace capital."
Once voted on, the motion
passed with 5-0 vote.
In the small amount of
discussion that was entered
-into in Monday's meeting
about the issue, no one offered
a reason as to why the
ordinance was suddenly being
asked for.
Second party
requests annexation
Along with the request from


the owners of the CVS
property, city commissioners
considered a second ordinance
that would annex more than six
acres of property on the west
side of the city.
Commissioners heard a
proposal from Jimmy Waters
to annex the land, located at
S.R. 238 and S.W. 12th
Avenue, into the city limits.
"It is his intent to construct a
small subdivision with 10
lots," Tillis said. "I
recommend we approve this'"
Ordinance 06-02 went
through it's introduction and
first reading. Lilke the previous
ordinance, it drew little
discussion and was approved
4-0.

LBMS gifted
students host
Headstart
holiday party...
Union County
Headstart students,
teachers and mothers
were treated to a
Christmas party prior
to the holiday break in
the Lake Butler Middle
School media center. .
Rather than taking a i .
field trip, the fifth- '
eighth grade students i
decided to enjoy
the spirit of giving by playing Santa to 20 Headstart students. The Headstart
students wrote letters to Santa which were "intercepted" by the gifted students.
The headstarters walked to the middle school, wherethey enjoyed Christmas
cookies, chocolate milk and candy canes. They were paired with the gifted
students who had become their Santa buddy. Gifts that had been purchased by
the middleschoolers were then passed out one by one, so everyone could enjoy
the looks of surprise and merriment on each child's face. The party was a great
experience for all of those involved, the givers as well as the receivers. "It's
amazing how quickly these children bond with you," remarked one seventh
grader. (Photo above right) LBMS student Ashlee Barton presents a doll to
Bre'onna Gilmore. (Photo below) Headstart students, teachers and parents enjoy

Step Up,
Florida event
Feb. 24
The "Step Up, Florida!"
statewide relay event is held
annually in February and will
be celebrating its third year in
2006.
The celebration will come to
Union County Friday February
24th with a fitness walk
scheduled during the day. This
year the Florida Department of
Health adopted a new slogan
for "Step Up, Florida!" 60 A
Day-the Florida Way to help
participants implement the
United States Department of
Agriculture dietary guidelines
that suggest 60 minutes of
physical activity a day to help
manage body weight and.
prevent gradual weight gain.
In 2004, only 41.2 percent of
adults in Florida report
engaging in moderate physical
activity for 30 or more minutes
on five or more days per week
or engaging in vigorous
physical activity for 20 or
more minutes on three or more
days per week.
Step Up, Florida!" was
designed in response to the
2004 Governor's Task Force
on the Obesity Epidemic
recommendations for
improving the health of
Floridians, which includes the
role of communities, family,
schools and public health in
promoting lifelong healthy
nutrition and physical activity.
Floridians who are engaged
in health promoting habits are
less likely to develop the
chronic conditions of heart
disease, cancer, stroke, chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease,
and diabetes, which accounted
for 65% of all deaths in Florida
in 2004.
For the 2006 "Step Up,
Florida!" campaign, fitness
flags will pass from 'county
line to county line on four
routes to traverse the state
before all meeting in Duval
County for, the grand' finale
celebration on February 28. *
In 2005, "Step Up,
Florida!" had over 114, 043
participants coming from 1328
community partners, :779
employer partners, 357 school
partners and the public at:

advisor David Harris. The

traveled to Louisville, Ky. to
be a part of the event.
Individually, Bennett had the
eighth best score among all
competitors. William's score
placed her llth among all
competitors. Each received a
$500 scholarship for their
remarkable performance.
Harris said he could not be
prouder of the team.
"In a state where chicken
production has dropped quite
dramatically, it's an
accomplishment for a team to
bring home a fourth place
finish," said Harris.
The team was put through a
series of competitions .that
required them to use all of
their,poultry knowledge. One
such test involved team
members looking at poultry
and giving it a grade. The
ready-to-cook carcass event
gives competitors 10
specimens to grade. Each
member must give each bird a
grade of A, B or C.
The members of the team are
chosen from practice
competitions conducted by
Harris. "I keep points
throughout our practice rounds
and team members are chosen
based on their point totals,"
said Harris. "I've kept those
totals since we started
practicing. in January."
Harris said team members
have an extensive practice
schedule. "They practice about
six hours here at school each
week in the afternoon," said
Harris. "In addition they spend
at least four hours on their own
at home. They work hard."

Fellowship
A Paul Harris Fellowship

Lake Butler Rotary meeting,
with his widow, Majorie
Driggers, making the
contribution in the name of her
late husband, and was present
to receive the certificate, pin
and medallion in his name.
"The Paul Harris Fellowship
is named for Paul Harris, who
founded Rotary with three
business associated in Chicago
in 1905," noted Lake Butler
Rotary President Carlton Faulk
during the presentation. "The
fellowship was established in
his honor in 1957 to express
appreciation for a contribution
of $1,000 to' the humanitarian
and education programs'of The
Rotary Foundation. Those
programs include an array of
projects that save and

international friendship and
understanding. Foundation

water, heath care,
immunizations and shelter for
millions of person. These

Fellowship to recognize
another person whole life

p.m., masterful vocalist and
pianist, Freddy Cole will
captivate listeners with his
elegant presence, subtle
phrasing and intimate singing
style.
This is the fifth event in

-Florida Althoughhe has-been
charming audiences in the
states 'and abroad for over 40
years, Freddy did not find
wider acclaim until the 1990s.
Having a family member
already in the limelight has its
mixed blessings. For much of
his career, Freddy was
overshadowed by the larger-
than-life persona and
legendary career of his 'brother
Nat King Cole. He had to
struggle to find his own niche
in the jazz world.
Lionel Frederick Cole, born
October 15, 1931, in Chicago,
was the fifth child to bless the
harmonious household of
Edward and Pelina Cole. By-
the age of five, under the

Lake Butler Rotary President Carlton Faulk (left) recently presented Marjorie
Driggers (second from left), widow of the late Robert Driggers, with a Paul Harris
Fellowship at a Lake Butler Rotary meeting. Also pictured are Bill McGill, (from I-r)
a rotary member and brother of Marjorie Driggers, and his wife, LonitaMcGill, and
Rotary members Rusty Wade and Jenny Reed.


"We move closer to a more
peaceful world today as the
late Robert Driggers becomes
a Paul Harris Fellow," Faulk
continued. "Mr. Driggers
contribution to The Rotary
Foundation of Rotary
International, is allaying
suffering, improving living

educational opportunities for
young people somewhere in

selfless action."


benevolent guidance of his
father, a minister, and his
musically inclined mother, he
started to play the family
piano.
A natural musician, ,Freddy
was also a gifted athlete with
professional aspirations.
However, when a high school
sports injury put an end to his
budding football career, he
decided to pursue music,
issuing his first recording,
"The Jokd's On Me," in 1952.
Freddy continued his music
education, 'first 'at'Chicigo' s
Roosevelt Institute, andlater at
the Juilliard School of Music
in New York. After earning
degrees from Juilliard and the
New England Conservatory of
Music, he hit the thriving jazz
scene of New York City,
taking whatever work he could
find and learning the ropes
from influential mentors.
During his formative years
in New York, Freddy listened
closely to the way horn players
formed phrases in their solos
and cultivated a sparse,
swinging vocal style that
would become his signature.
In the mid 1970s, Freddy
built an international fan base
with a series of European
recordings. His album, One


Faulk then presented Mrs.
Driggers with the certificate, a
lapel, pin and medallion on
behalf of the trustees of The
Rotary Foundation. The
certificate stated that the late
Robert Driggers was named a
Paul Harris Fellow in
appreciation of tangible and
significant assistance given for
the furtherance of better
understanding and friendly
.relations between peoples of
the world.


More Love Song went gold in
Brazil. Because his, intimate
singing style resembled that of
many Brazilian balladeers, the
Brazilians erhbraced him like
one of their own.
Throughout the 1980s,
Freddy continued playing
clubs and inspiring up-and-
coming musicians, but
garnering minimal commercial
success. Finally, his
perseverance paid off when
producer Todd Barkan began
working with him at Fantasy
Records. I S -

Freddy recorded a series of
stellar CDs throughout the
1990s. With each project,
Freddy's popularity in the U.S.
gained additional momentum.
Barkan also paired the crooner
with other celebrated jazz
artists such as saxophonist
Grover Washington Jr. and
guitarist Russell Malone.
Today, Freddy Cole feels
"blessed" to be doing what he
loves best telling stories
through music, reaching
people with his exuberant
warmth and- inexorable talent.
We should consider ourselves
equally as fortunate to hear
more from this jazz great with

Please accept

City moves not to renew

chamber membership


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
On Feb. 3, city of Lake
Butler city commissioners
moved to not renew its
membership with the North
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce.
By a 4-0 vote,
commissioners decide to take a
wait and see approach on
paying the annual dues.
"It's really been difficult for
me to see what benefits we've
gotten," said City Manager
Richard Tillis. "Especially in
the last year or so."
Tillis told commissioners the
city had received its bill some
time ago, but he had not paid it
to this point.
"We were billed at the end
of the last fiscal year, and I've
toyed with this for quite some
time," Tillis said. "I've just
needed to get direction from
the board to see if you all see
something I don't."
Tillis said he had asked the
chamber for special programs
to no avail.
"I had asked on several
occasions that the chamber
conduct 'seminars for small
businesses on insurance, taxes,
whatever the case may be,"
Tillis said. "But we really

never saw anything like that
and I haven't seen much else."
Tillis recommended to the
board that the city not renew
its membership with the
chamber.
"I agree with that," said
Commissioner Lynn Bishop.
After the vote, Tillis told
board members of another
option that was being kicked
around.
"I will mention that there
have been discussions, from
several local business people,
about reviving the Union
County Chamber of
Commerce," Tilli4 said. "If
that begins to happen, I'll keep
you advised of that." : -
According to Tillis, when-
the Union County Chamber of
Commerce was dissolved, he
recalls it having more than 60
members. -
"I don't know how many
Union County members the
chamber has now, but I'm sure
it's far shy of 60," Tillis said.
"After the merger, the chamber
did not do what it promised it-
would. I don't want to spend-

Today would have been your 49th
birthday. All I have are memories
because God called you home 10
years ago.
The worst loss in life is the loss of a
child. I will always wish God had
taken me first. The pain of losing a
child leaves a hole in your heart, a
hole that can never be mended, an
emptiness and heartache that never
goes away.
The night you died, a part of mn
went with you.
The family chain is broken and
nothing seems the same, but as God
calls us one by one, the chain will
link again.
I love you,

Bradford County 4-H members


help honor Woman of the Year


Bradford County 4-H
members Abigail Crawford,
Kaitlin Griifis, Kristin Griffis,
Amy. LaFollette, and Scott
LaFollette were among those
present at the Florida State
Fair opening luncheon
Wednesday, Feb. 9, at the
Charles M. Davis Special
Events Center in Tampa.
These youth were in
attendance to help celebrate as
Florida Commissioner of
Agriculture Charles Bronson
recognized Florida 4-H leader
Marlene Strickland as the 2005
Woman of the Year in
Agriculture.
"The Woman of the Year in
Agriculture award ceremony is
always a much anticipated
event, adding to the excitement
of the opening-day festivities
at the Florida State Fair,",
Bronson said.
Strickland has made it her
life's work to help preserve
Florida's agricultural tradition


and to pass on the important
skills she has learned growing
up on a farm. As a 4-H
volunteer leader for the past 30
years, Strickland has helped a
new generation gain hands-on
farming and ranching
experience. With more and
more Floridians becoming
removed from their rural roots,
she and other 4-H volunteers
provide young people with an
invaluable opportunity to
reconnect with the land.
Strickland says she believes
in 4-H because it provides
entertainment and education,.
and because it allows families
to focus- on a 'common,
worthwhile goal and see
progress. Today, Strickland is
one of the most recognized and
successful leaders in Florida 4-
H, and she continues to pour a
tremendous amount of time
and creativity into the
program.
Crawford, Florida 4-H State


President and Bradford CQunty
4-H member, expressed her
appreciation of Strickland's
commitment to Florida 4-H.
"It is so nice to see someone
like Miss Marlene receive this
honor," Crawford said. "On
behalf of the Florida 4-H State
Council and the over 200,000
4-H members in the state of
Florida, I congratulate Miss
Marlene. It is dedicated 4-H
volunteers like her that make
the Florida 4-H program a
success."
This is the 21st year the
Woman of the Year in
Agriculture award has been
bestowed upon someone who
has made outstanding
contributions to Florida
agriculture. The Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and the
Florida State Fair Authority
sponsored the award, and the
Florida Department of Citrus
sponsored the luncheon.

ACS paves
Road to
Recovery
The American Cancer
Society is launching its'Road
to Recovery Program in North
Florida. The program has been
designed to fulfill one of the
major problems encountered
by cancer patients-getting to
and from treatment.
With thanks to your local
library system, the American
Cancer Society has placed
thousands of bookmarks in the
public libraries of an I1-
county area-bookmarks
which encourage volunteer
drivers to join the Road to
Recovery-. Program and which
encourage cancer patients who
need a ride to call and request
one.
Transportation issues' are
particularly difficult in .this
area given the distances to
treatment centers. Many
patients need daily or weekly
treatment, often over the
course of several months and
they don't have a car or are
simply too .ill to drive. The
American Cancer Society's
Road to Recovery Program
provides transportation for
cancer patients to and from
these life-saving appointments.
Volunteer drivers donate their
time and the use of their
personal vehicles to transport-
these patients.
This program fills a need
reported by cancer treatment
centers in Florida. A recent
poll of treatment centers by the


ACS found that 90 percent of
centers reported they have had
patients miss treatment
appointments due to lack of
transportation. Also,
community medical
transportation providers report
that their most common
medical destination is to
radiation treatment centers.
Road to Recovery is the very
essence of the American
Cancer Society mission-
people helping people
overcome cancer. Road to
Recovery volunteers provide
an essential and necessary
service because even the
greatest medical advance is
useless if patients can't get
treatment.
The American Cancer
Society's Road to Recovery
Program is in need of
volunteer drivers. Volunteers
are needed to ensure that all
patients are getting the care
they desperately need.
The American Cancer
Society has a vast volunteer
network helping local
community members make a
difference in the fight against
cancer. Road to Recovery
volunteer driving requires no
special skills or education-
just a safe driving record, a
valid drivers license, some free
time, a vehicle in good
working condition and the
desire to help.
-This volunteeropportutfityis
designed to be an easy and
stress-free service for both
patients and volunteers.
Training sessions, maps, and
directions are provided to


those who volunteer their time.
For more information or to
volunteer for this important
service, please contact
Margaret Shaw (888) 295-
6787 (ext. 114), or by e-mail at
Margaret.shaw@cancer.org.
* Cancer patients desiring
rides or information about
other American Cancer.
Society programs .and services
should call the Patient Services


Center at (800) 227-9954.
The American Cancer
Society is the nationwide
community-based voluntary
health organization dedicated
to eliminating cancer as a
major health program by
preventing cancer, saving lives
and diminishing suffering from
cancer, through research,
education, advocacy, and
service.

Money is
available to
feed children
this summer
Federal funding from the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
- (USDA) is available to Florida
faith-based and community
sponsors to operate feeding
programs for low-income
children this summer. The
federal funds will reimburse
organizations that operate the
USDA Summer Food Service
Program .for Children.
When school lunchrooms
close for the summer, a
significant number of children
in low-income Florida
communities could be at risk of
hunger or poor nutrition
because free and reduced price
school meals are not available.
USDA's Summer Food
Program is designed to bridge
this summer nutrition gap. It
reimburses organizations for
serving free, nutritious
breakfasts, lunches or snacks to
children in eligible low-income
areas. However, the program
continues to be underutilized,
largely due to a lack of willing
operators and feeding sites.


Feb. 17 is sign-

Couple proves you're never too old to walk the aisle


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
You could not blame the
happy couple for being
nervous. They were about to
take a big step in their lives
and get married. --
It was a step, however, that
each had first taken more than
60 years ago.


Love conquers all, they say,
and that proved to be true in
the case of 93-year-old Rogers
Dansby and 84-year-old
Virginia Ekard, who tied the
koot Feb. 4 in a ceremony at
Camp Blanding.
Ekard, who had been single
for the past 29 yeats, said she
never envisioned she would
reenter the dating scene..


Rogers and Virginia Dansby cut their wedding cake.


"In fact, I said I would never
marry again," she said. "I'm
eating my own words now."
Ekard is not the only one
who thought another wedding
wasn't in her future.
"I think her daughters were
surprised after she had been
single all those years," said
Janice Hall, Dansby's
daughter.
"They were shocked," Ekard
admitted.
Dansby, who has been a
widow the past three years,
said the decision to get married
seemed to be natural.
"We just got together and
thought maybe it would be
nice to have companionship
with each other for the rest of
our time-whatever time the
lord gives us," Dansby said.
That's why Hall, who
admitted she had mixed
feelings at first, was happy to
see this happen to her father.
"I was glad for Dad's sake
because I knew he got awfully.
lonesome," Hall said, adding
that Ekard is a "nice, sweet
lady." ,
The courtship began at,
Madison Street Baptist Church
in Starke, where both, Dansb),
and Ekard were member s. ,For
Dansby, it was like: a
schoolboy crush. He admired
how pretty Ekard's hair was
and soon found himself sitting
behind her just so he could
admire it. I .
"Finally, I broke down% and
had to tell her how pretty it-
was," he said. "That's where it

started off."
Ekard found she was
attracted to the kindness
Dansby expressed to others.
"He always had a smile and
a handshake for everybody,"
she said. *
The couple may be in their
80s and 90s, but that did not
make going out any easier.
."The first time we went out
to eat was so awkward," Ekard
said. "It was like being a
teenager all over again."
Dansby said he had to,
quickly overcome any
nervousness about dating again
for a pretty good reason. --. :

Keystone girls


ose 49-35 in regional semifinals


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Winter Park Trinity Prep's
cold shooting heated up in a
hurry and the Keystone
Heights girls basketball team
could not recover, losing 49-35
in a Region 2-Class 3A
semifinal game on Feb. 14 in
Keystone.
Trinity Prep 23-3, which
plays for the Region 2
championship Saturday, Feb.
18, shot just 27 percent from
the field in the first half, yet
trailed by just one point.
The visitors then came out in
the third quarter and made 8-
of-15 field goal attempts, four
of which were 3-pointers.
Leo Montalvo's 3-pointer
put Trinity up 21-19. Montalvo
then scored in transition after a
steal by Samantha Shields,
followed by another 3-poiriter

What head coach Shane
McFadyen termed a "great"
season came to an end with an
85-51 loss to seventh-ranked
Andrew Jackson in a Region
2-Class 4A quarterfinal game
on Feb. 9 in Jacksonville.
"They were a real solid
team," McFadyen said of
Jackson (26-3), which played
East Gadsdem (21-5) in the
regional semifinals Feb. 14.
"Some of their strengths
directly correlated with some
of our weaknesses in regards
to their depth and their
presence down low."
McFadyen said the final
score was not indicative of
how his team played.
Bradford, which trailed 34-21
at the half, was able to cut the


by Jess Overmeyer.
While Trinity's shooting
was improving, Keystone's
was getting worse. The Irnians
(17-12) had only five field
goals in the second half, the
first of which did not come
until there was 1:49 remaining
in the third quarter. That came
on a short jumper by Jessica
Whitfield, which made the
score 33-21.
Trinity s Montalvo
answered that with a 3-pointer,
but the Indians were able to
pull to within seven after two
free throws by Whitfield and a
basket by Kim Russell.
Montalvo drained a long 3-
pointer that sent Trinity into
the fourth quarter up by 10.
Kellie Spaulding had
consecutive baskets for
Keystone early in the fourth
quarter to pull her team within
eight, but that's as. close as the


Jackson's lead to seven in the
third quarter.
However, Bradford's lack of
depth became an issue as
fatigue set in and two players
fouled out. Jackson went oi a
15-2 run in the game's final
three minutes.
Also, Jackson did a good job
of finishing in
transition-something the
Tornadoes did not do.
"We forced them into
numerous turnovers, but we
didn't capitalize on them as
well as they did," McFadyen
said.
Tosha Griffin and Khalaa
Hill each scored 17 points for
the Tornadoes, while Jerica
Warren finished with eight
points.
The loss was Bradford's
fifth in its last six games,
ending the Tornadoes' year

basket, drew a foul and made,

Spiller said he knew the
Raiders' Toshman Stevens had
a couple of fouls ort him, so he

It came down to a shootout
for the second straight match
for the Keystone Heights boys
soccer team, but this time the
Indians couldn't outshoot their
opponent, losing 2-1 to visiting
Lake Highland Prep in the
, Region 2-Class 3A
championship on Feb. 10.
Lake Highland (10-14-1)
outshot Keystone 3-2 in the
penalty kicks round to advance
to the state semifinals, which
were played Feb. 15 in Fort
, Lauderdale.
"They were fast and I think
we were a little bit tired there
in the PK round, which made
the shots go off a little bit,"
said Keystone head coach
Trevor Waters, whose team
finished its season at 11-10-6.
The Indians misfired on
their first three penalty kicks,
with attempts by Austin
Bennett and Hayden Rodel

COUPLE
Continued from p. 2C
they were married before, was
a first as neither Dansby nor
Ekard took part in a proper
wedding the first time around.
"Back when I got married to
start with, you just went out,
found a parson and some
witnesses, got married and
went on about your business,"
Dansby said.
That wedding occurred in
1931 in Dadeville, Ala. It
consisted of Dansby, his bride,
Frances, two of her friends and
the preacher.
Ekard married -her first
husband, James, in 1942. Their
wedding took place in front of
her parents and sisters at her
parents' house in Lake
Geneva.
Simple ceremonies, which
was how Ekard and Dansby
originally envisioned their
wedding. Ekard said she and
Dansby had planned just to go
and get married at the
courthouse, but the interest
expressed by others in
attending transformed their
simple affair into a more
traditional church ceremony.
"I think there were a lot of
family members and friends
who wanted to go when they
found out about it," Ekard
said. -
When Ekard married her
first husband, the couple drove
all night to North Carolina and
James. Ekard's home town.
Ekard took part in another
drive following her marriage to
Dansby. The couple planned to
drive to Ozark, Ala., where
Dansby grew up, so Ekard
could meet his family
members who lived there.
Don't- worry, though. The
couple did 'not plan to drive
continuously until they
reached their destination.
Dansby said they would most
likely stop by and stay the
night with his brother, who
lives in Georgia. ,
Dansby said he and Ekard
planned to just stay gone for a
couple of days.
"Then we're coming back
home and settle down for life,"
he said.

wrestlers

cap season

at regionals

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer

The Feb. 10-11 Region 1-
Class A meet at the Bolles
School in Jacksonville was just
too tough an obstacle for the
Bradford wrestlers to
overcome as none qualified for
the state finals.
Bobby Andrews probably
had the best chance of any
Bradford wrestler to advance,
but Bradford coach Rick Porter
said the competition was just
so formidable, in the 152-
pound class, which included
many wrestlers who placed at
last year's finals.
"He really did deserve to go
to state, but our region was so
stacked in that weight class,"
Porter said. L ..
Having said that, Porter said.,
that- Andrews did w restle and
was close to pulling off v.hat
would have been termed an
upset that would have sent him
to state.
Andrews finished the
tournament with a 2-2 record,
as did teammate Max Ennis
(119-pound class).
Donny Jarrett (130), Josh
Oliver (140), Alan Lin (160)i.
Mark Wininger I 89) and Cla\
Koehler (215) each had a 1-2
record at the tournament. whilee
Jeremy Agin (.125 1 as 0-2.
More than half of Bradford's
team is comprised of freshmen
and sophomores, many Thf'
Whom wrestled for thel first
time this season. Porter hopes
those who participated in the,
.regional tournament for the'
first time will build upon that
experience next season.
"It was a good experience
for them to go see that
atmosphere." Porter said "

could've won the match on its
third attempt by Cameron
Moore.
Keystone goalie Michael
McLeod made the save on
Moore's attempt, giving the
Indians a chance. They took
advantage of it when Branden
Waters and Brad Gober each
converted on their kicks, while
the Highlanders' fourth
attempt was off the mark.
The Highlanders' fifth
attempt, by Aaron Rasmussen,
found the mark, however.
"This was a great high
school soccer match," Trevor
Waters said. "I'm proud of my
boys. I felt like they competed
hard."
The two teams played a
scoreless first half, with
McLeod thwarting a
Highlanders' scoring
opportunity late in the half
when he tipped away a shot
and made the save on the
rebound.
Zeroes remained on the
scoreboard until the 50th
minute when Keystone's
Dustin 'Hayre, following a
header by Rodel, headed a ball
into the right corner of the net.
The score stood at 1-0 in
favor of the Indians until the
Highlanders, who got a "little,
lucky bounce," according to
Waters, scored with less than
two minutes remaining.
Two scoreless, 10-minute
periods followed, sending the
match into the penalty-kick
round.
Though it was a loss, Waters
could see the positive strides
made by a young team, which
lost nine matches during the
regular season, won the
program's third straight district
championship and advanced to
the regional finals for the
second straight year. ,
"We're just :building on
that," Waters said. "Next year,
we'll go further. Next year


we'll have everybody back
except two starting seniors.
