Senator Smith makes campaign stop in Lake Butler


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer


Gubernatorial candidate Rod
Smith made his way to Lake
Butler Feb. 28 to let people-
know what he planned to do if
elected governor.
Union County Clerk of
Courts Regina Parrish
introduced Smith.
"I first became aquatinted
with Rod Smith because he
was my state attorney," Parrish
&said. "He helped me
tremendously. He is that kind
of person."
She reminded the crowd
what Smith had done for both
Bradford and Union County.
"He's been instrumental in
acquiring millions of dollars
'for our small counties," Parrish
said.
She said he has been a friend
to the Department of
Corrections as well.
"He, has led the fight for.
higher pay and benefits for the
Department of Corrections,"
Parrish said. "For those men
and women that put their lives
on the line for you and I every
day."
Parrish said the. primary
reason she supports Smith is
'that he knows the community.
"He is one of us and he
knows our values," Parrish.
said. "He has walked in our
shoes, and he can relate to each
and everyone of you here
tonight."
During his speak, he told the
gathering that his name is not
as well known in the Southern
counties of the state.
"I %as introduced as Rod
Stewart at one of my poli ical
rallies," Smith said. "I was also
introduced as the person who
promoted serial killer Danny
Rolling."
He also told the gathering
about a poll he looked at when
he first decided to run.
"We looked at the poll, and'
it said I had 4 percent of the
vote," Smith said. "With a 5
percent margin of error, we
knew we had a lot of work to"
do."
Smith said he got into the
race for governor .for two
reasons.
"I knew I couldM %in, and I
wanted to make a difference,"
Smith said.
Smith told the audience that
he felt he had a good shot to
';win because no matter the
opponent he had what it took.,
"1 have gone up against
some well funded Republican


. '. .' ,


Top: Rod Smith speaks to
his supporters during a
campaign stop in Lake
Butler. Smith said one of
his top priorities was
education.

member Sue Whitehead

Supervisor of Elections

opponents," Smith said. "But
because I stayed on the issues I
made opponents
uncomfortable and won."
Smith said he was confident
he could win in North Florida
because of the voters.
"People in this area don't
care if your Democrat or
Repu-blican," Smith said.
"They vote for you because of-
who you are."
Smith said if elected one of
his first priorities would be to
put the state's educational
system back on the right track .
"Florida is 49'h among all
states in many of its test scores
of all college bound seniors,"
Smith said. "As governor, I'd
make sure we did much
better."
He said he was also in favor
of raising teachers' salaries.
"Florida is also 48th when it
comes to what we pay our
teachers," Smith said. "As
governor, I'd see to it that our
teachers are paid like the
professionals they are and that
we expect them to be."
He said he felt the current
administration had the state's
schools headed in the wrong
direction.
"I believe this governor and
this administration forgot the
purpose of public schools,"
Smith said. "It's not to prepare
the students for a test one week
out of the year, its to prepare
you to be successful in life."
Smith said that everyone had
someone that helped them be
successful in his or her life.
"I had a teacher that changed
my life, and I called her and
thanked her," Smith said.
"Everyone in this room I know
a teacher changed your life and
I vant those teacher;. back in-
the classroom, and I -%ant them
to have the authoritN to control
their classrooms."
Smith told the' audience he
met.- a teacher recentlN in
Montecello that is teaching in
Georgia for more money.'
"She's making $9,000 more
a year to go across the state
line," Smith said. "We have
teachers car- pooling to make
$6,000 a year. I will not be the
governor of state that is dead
last in what we pa) our
teachers." -
Smith also spoke about the
Department of Corrections.

Library using unique way to raise funds for new facility


BY JAMES REDMOND
Tmnes Staff Writer

To help fund the building of
it's new facility, the Union
County Public Library has
come up with a unique way to
raise funds.
The library is selling parts of
mural that will appear in the
new facility. The picture
depicts a wildlife scene that
resembles native Florida.
Library Director Mary Brown
presented the idea to county
commissioners at the board's
Feb. 20 meeting.
'"In an effort to raise funds
for our much needed new.
building, the library is taking
donations for different parts of
the picture." Brown said. "The
image will be translated, into. a
giant mural on the meeting
room wall of the new library
building.
Brown told commissioners
that with the dimensions of the
wall, the painting will almost
appear to be lifelike. .
S"It is estimated that each
animal on the mural will be
life-size or larger," Brown
said.
Donors will be recognized
by a plaque for each 'section
they buy.
"The name of the business or


individual will be listed .for
years, showing their support of
the librar- and our
community's education,"
Brown said. "The donor can
have their family's name. on
the plaque or dedicate it in
memory on a loved one, it will
be the donor's option. Just
think of the lasting benefits
that you can have with your
small investment."
The picture has a large tree
in, the middle with a stream
running next to it. Several
animals, including a Florida
panther, bears, raccoons, deer,
.alligators and an egret are all
pictured in the scene. The
scene shows Florida as a
natural environment. The
painting was created by Marie
Wiggs Tyre.
To raise funds, Brown has
divided up sections of the
picture for donors to purchase.
Donations are as follows:
o Leaf on the tree, $200.
Limb on the tree, $500.
SSmall bird, $500.
SSmall reptile, $500.
Squirrel, $500.
o Raccoons, $1,000/pair.
SFlying egrets, $1,000/pair.
SLarge bird, $1,000.
SBear, $1,000.
0 Alligator, $1,000.
o Deer, $2,000.


Above is a rendering of what the mural that will adorn the wall of the new library will
look like. The mural will help the library raise money for its new facility.


6 Panther, $2,000.
o Trunk of tree, $5,000.
Brown said her goal Fs to
raise $50,000 from the project.
The library began fund
raising for the new facility at


the same time it submitted a
grant application to the state
for -funding last year. If
approved, the grant would
provide the county $500,000
.toward the new facility.


In February 2005, the county
hired a consulting firm to help
draft the grant. It was then

submitted to the state library
board who will announce grant
awards in April 2006.
Brown said that she has
heard good news about the
county's chances from the
state library board.
"Because of the way the
grants are awarded, there's a
good chance that Union
County will get its grant the
first time around," Brown said.
"All indications are that we are
near the very top of the list for
funding."
The formula set forth by the
state suggests that a county
have 0.6 square feet of library
space for every resident in the
county. With more than 14,000
residents, the current library
facility is only one-third the
size is should be.
"What we're looking to do,
depending on funding, is build
a library that is 10,000-15,000
square feet," Brown said. "But
even then our facility's space
will all be used up."
Brown said-between meeting
space, offices for library
personnel and collection
storage, the new facility will
fill up quickly. _
'"What we want is room to
hold our programs that won't
require us to go off site, as
well- as have space for
personnel to work," Brown
said."
By 'all estimates, the grant
will be just under half of what
the county will need to build
the new library.
"The rest is going to have to
come from us," Brown said.
"Though it seems like a large
amount of money, I'm
committed to doing whatever it
takes to raise the necessary
funds."
One place Brown said a
substantial amount of the
funding will come from will be
the sale. of the library's current
facility. While Brown does not
have a solid figure. Depending
on the time it goes up for sale,
she expects the building to
bring in between $200,000, to
$250,000.

information about the project,

Raiford asks for county's help Spiller recognized by school board


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer

On Feb. 20, District 2
Commissioner Morris Dobbs
presented a letter to his fellow
county commissioners on
behalf of the town of Raiford
asking them to support a
proposal for a traffic light.
"The Raiford Town Council
is writing this letter to enlist
the help and support of the
Union County Commission in
obtaining a traffic light at the
intersection of S.R. 121 and
(C.R.) 229 in Raiford". the
letter states. "We have
attempted to get the
Department of Transportation
to install a traffic light to no ..-
avail."
According to the letter,
DOT has informed the town
for the past eight years that the
traffic count numbers at the
intersection do not warrant a
light.
"A traffic study, conducted
as recently as August 2005,
confirms that there is just not
enough traffic to warrant a full
signal," said DOT
spokesperson Gina Busscher.
"We are studying the
intersection currently to see if
the volume has increased
enough to warrant the change."
A full-time traffic signal is
defined by the department as a
signal that stops traffic in one
direction while letting traffic in
the opposite direction proceed.
Currently, the intersection has
a flashing traffic signal which
warns drivers that are
approaching the intersection.
According to Tony Falotico,
the assistant district traffic
operations engineer for DOT,
the state follows the Manual on
Uniform. Traffic Control
Devices for installation of
traffic signals.
"The manual establishes
guidelines that help us
determine where, and what
type, of traffic control devices
should be. put in place,".
Falotico said. "According to
the manual, the intersection did
not meet the, criteria to-install a
full signal."
According to the manual, a
minimum of 600 vehicles must
pass through an intersection,
on S.R. 121, during an eight-
hour period fpr the inJtersqetipn
to e considered for iafull-time
traffic signal. On C.R. 229,
150 vehicles would be required
to pass through. While DOT
representatives did- not give
exact numbers, both said the
intersection did not fall into
this criteria. .-....
Falotico %ent on to explain
that the numbers were not the
only thing the-DOT considered
when putting in a signal.
"Many of the intersections
along (U.S.)' 301, in Starke
meet these criteria, but y6u
don't see a signal at everyone
of them," Falotico said. "Crash
history, pedestrian volume and
engineering studies are also"
factored in when considering
an intersection for any .type of
traffic control device. Traffic
flow is also 'another
contributing factor."
Raiford's letter, writteri by
Mayor J.D. Griffis, says traffic


and accidents have increased at
the intersection.
"Since the county had (S.R.)
121 widened and resurfaced,
truck traffic on the road has
increased as have traffic
accidents at the intersection,"
Griffis said. "The mayor's
nephew lost his life at this
intersection and one of the
town council members had an
accident there as well."
In the letter, Griffis says the
council continues to receive
complaints about the
conditions.
"We continue to receive
many complaints from town
and county residents in
reference to the traffic
-concerns at this intersection,"
Griffis said. "The trucks
speeding through town are
making it very dangerous."
The letter also requested a
measure to help with traffic
control.
"In addition to the traffic
light, we would like the
county's assistance in getting
the speed limits reduced in this
area," Griffis said.
According to the letter, the
town would like to see the
speed limit ohn 'S.R. 121
reduced to 55 mph from it's
current 60 mph.
"The area currently posted at
45 mph, we would like to see
reduced to 35 mph," Griffis
said. "On behalf of the Raiford
residents and town council, we
appreciate any help and
support the Union County
commission can provide in this
endeavor."
According to county-,
commission secretary Carol
Roney, Chairman 'Wayne
Smith.called DOT to suppQrt
the town's proposal.
"He called last week and
talked with DOT officials to let
them know the county fully
backed Raiford's proposal."
Roney said.

Smith said. "I'm not sure what
is going to happen right now,
but I promise you this, that if I
become governor I will never
forget, I will never disrespect
and I will always hold in
asteam the people that do a job
that most people want to
critize, but would never do. I
appreciate the Department of

know where Union and

of him.

Smith thanked former
Sheriff John Whitehead for
getting him into the political
arena.
. "One day Alachua County
Sheriff Lou Henry walked into
my office one day and said
'We decided to get a change,'"
Smith said. "I said 'who's
we?' He said me and John
Whitehead. We talked about it
and you're going to be OK."
Smith said he asked Henry
to let him think about it, but
the next day in the Gainesville
Sun there was a story saying
he would be running.
"And that's the way John
Whitehead works," Smith said.
Whitehead attend- the
gathering and Smith addressed
him.
"You'll always be the sheriff
of Union County to me,"
Smith said. "It's -wonderful
what you and your sons have
done."

Ordinance would amend

Meet the UCHS girl's softball team city's duplex zoning


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer
The city of Lake Butler has
decided to take a new approach
when it comes to allowing
duplexes in the city.
On Feb. 13, city
commissioners voted 4-0 to
approve the introduction and
first reading of ordinance 06-
05. If fully approved, the
measure would allow residents
to build duplex units by special
exemption only.
Currently no duplexes can
be built in residential single
family zoned areas.
"This ordinance would allow
us to, on a case-by-case basis,
review applications for such
dwellings," said City Manager
Richard Tillis. "Anyone
wanting to build a duplex
would first have to get it
approved by the commission."
According to the ordinance,
the change would list duplex,


dwellings as a special
exception to the city's land
development regulations. By
doing so, anyone wanting to
build a duplex would first have
to request the city hold a
public hearing to consider the
request. It would also have to
be approved by the planning
and zoning board.
Tillis said the move came in
light of the many requests the
city had to build the dwellings.
"I've been approached by
several people in the last few
months who wanted to build
duplexes across from others
already in the area," Tillis said.
"While current regulations
would not allow them to, these
new ones would at least let the
commission consider it."
The board will take up the
issue once again at its March
13 meeting.
James Redmond can be
reached at (386) 496-2261 or
uctimes@alltel.net

A tribute to
Colan Coody
How do you write about
someone who has supported
youth, parents, volunteers and
the Union County Extension
Office's educational efforts for
more than 13 years?
You write with words of
appreciation for the years we
worked together as a team.
You write with fond memories
of adventures shared. You
write with respect for the
impact made on young lives.
You write with regret for
losing a valuable co-worker.
You write with best wishes in
future endeavors.
Colan Coody came to the
.Extension Office for a job
interview for the 4-H program
assistant position in blue jeans,
T-shirt and a big bushy beard.
He had just retired from the
Air Force, built the house of
his dreams in the county he
was raised in and was looking
for something to do that would
be. fun as well as let him
spread his wings a little.
Over the years, Mr. Coody
built a 4-H youth program that
involved teachers, volunteers,
parents and youth that anyone
could be proud of. In 2005,
the Union County Extension
Office 4-H Youth Education
Program had 42
Organizational Leaders, 59
project leaders and was guided
with the help of 10 4-H
advisory council members.
There were five traditional
community 4-H clubs with a
total of 62 youth. The school
enrichment 4-H projects
enrolled 1,105 youth! 'Nine
environmental 4-H Day Camps
were held in the summer,
which were attended by a total
of 265 youth! Two camping
programs enrolled 19 youth.
Yes, Mr. Coody, you have
touched the lives of many
young people. During your
tenure at the Extension Office
.you lost your beard, but kept
your sense of. humor. On your
last day at work, you still wore
a pair of blue jeans and a T-
shirt. Don't ever change. You
will be hard to replace. We.
regret our loss. Most of all, we
appreciate the years you gave
us.
On behalf of all of the youth,
parents, volunteers, 4-H &

News from Bradford County, Union County-and -the Lake Region area



Rod Smith holds campaign rally in Union County


BY JAMES REDMOND
Times Staff Writer


Democratic gubernatorial
candidate Rod Smith recently
made a campaign swing
through Lake Butler to let
citizens know why he's
running to be the next
governor of Florida.
"Strength and conviction
win elections, and I have the
strength and conviction
Democrats need to win the
governor's race in 2006,"
Smith said.
Tough prosecutor, advocate
for children and families and
:champion of working families
are just some of the many
values Smith is relying on to
take him to Tallahasse in 2006.
As a two-term state attorney
from the Gainesville area,
Smith successfully prosecuted
some of. Florida's most
:dangerous criminals, including
Danny Rolling. Also as a state
:attorney, he led efforts to
protect the environment by
creating one of Florida's first
environmental crime task force
units.
.One other feat while in the
,state attorney's office was the
.formation of the state's first
special prosecution unit
devoted exclusively to
,prosecuting crimes against
,women and children.
As a state senator, Smith
helped pass important
legislation making it easier for
single parents to collect child
support. He also sponsored
.legislation creating the
.Florida's Child Advocacy
.Trust Fund. The fund provides
help to children who have been
the victims of abuse. For-his..
efforts, Smith earned the
Voices of Children
Foundation's MVP Leadership
Award on behalf of abused,
abandoned and neglected
children.
As an attorney, Smith spent
17 )ears representing the rights
of police officers, firefighters
arid public employees
throughout the state. While in

the Senate, Smith has pursued
better health care and lower
prescription drug costs for
working families and seniors.
During 2005, Smith was
recognized by the Florida
AFL-CIO for having the best
record in the Senate on behalf
of working men and women.


While Smith was born in
Southwest City, Mo., he
considers himself a native
Floridian. Before he reached
the age of 2, Smith's family
moved to Florida. While in
Palm Beach County, he grew
up laboring alongside his
father, a truck farmer, working


fields of eggplant and green
peppers.
During his speech, he told
the gathering that his name is
not as well known in the
Southern counties of the state.
"I was introduced as Rod
Stewart at one of my political
rallies," Smith said. "I was also


introduced as the person who
promoted serial killer Danny
Rolling."
He also told the gathering
about a poll he looked at when
he first decided to run.
"We looked at a poll and it
said I had 4 percent of the
vote," Smith said. "With a 5-


percent margin of error, we
knew we had a lot of work to
do."
Smith said he got into the
race for governor for two
reasons.

Toothpaste


Have you noticed any toothpaste
ads lately? No? Neither have I, and I
don't really know why manufacturers
aren't advertising, or have I quit
paying attention?
The vast majority of people don't
remember toothpaste advertising in
the 1925 era, what the product tasted
like, or how it was packaged. It's quite
likely today's readers don't know, nor,
do they care about mundane items
such as toothpaste, but without
research, I can answer the three trivia
questiolnsjust.,quoted-.
The toothpaste of 1925 consisted of
About the same brand names, with'
.2Colgate, Iparia and Pepsodent being
-the most prominent. The'consistency
"a~id taste have remained largely'
unchanged, although the.
manufacturers will claim, added
qualities to reduce or prevent tooth
.4nients. All manufacturers claimed.
to "make teeth whiter," but the home
bleaching systems being advertised,
today is a product of current years.
Eighty years ago, Colgate claimed
the moniker "Ribbon Dental Cream,"
because the toothpaste tube had an
oblong hole through ,which the
toothpaste was squeezed onto the
brush. The shape of the product'
coming out 'of the tube had nothing to
do with quality, but it was an
advertising gambit, void of any
quality. Colgate abandoned the
-"Ribbon". claim because the
individual could more easily control
the amount. of toothpaste being put on


the brush.
Enlarging the hole increases the
amount being squeezed out of the
tube. Ipana, one of the three top
brands, advertised its protection
against "pink toothbrush," which
referred to bleeding gums. Pink
toothbrush isn't mentioned any more,
so perhaps, Ipana cured all bleeding
gums circa 1925.
Pepsodent touted whiter teeth,
calling attention to the bleaching
action of its product.
In those days, and possibly up
through the early 1950s, the product
was packaged in a thin, malleable.
metal tube, high in lead content. As,,,
the product was consumed, .,thet-'
bottom end' of the tube was rolled up, u'
and being metal, it kept its shA eA
making it easy to squeezeolhef
toothpaste onto the brush. During
World War. II lead was in short supply,.
requiring the' public to turn in.. an
empty tube in order to buy a new one..
Apparently lead poisoning wasn't a,
problem, or wasn't known as a
problem. Anyway, the metal tube
gave way to the plastic tube of today,
and since it doesn't retain its shape as
the ingredient is used, it becomes a
nuisance to get the toothpaste out of
the larger tubes.
The years have made some things
better, but if toothpaste has improved,
I haven't noticed.

Dear Editor:
I don't understand what all
the smoke is about the city
recreation department not
wanting to join forces with the
YMCA.
I have been involved with
the ladies at the recreation
department for many years,
having had three children
almost raised down there and
their contention is, "The more
facilities in our community, the
more children we can get
involved in recreational
activities."
I believe parents should have
a choice of where they would
like their children to go for
activities and that the city
should not take that choice
away from us. My point is that
there are enough children in
Bradford County for more than
one or 'two operations and
competition is always a good
thing for the community --
that is what keeps cost down
and quality of service high.
Also while the recreation
department does not offer the
scholarship program that the
YMCA offers, I can attest to
the fact that they do everything
they can to find sponsors if for
some reason you cannot pay.
My children are involved in
the summer program and I can
assure you that \ou %%ill not
find a better place or price (S10
per week for daycare from 7
a.m. until 6 p.m., Monday
through Friday, with qualified
supervision) and my children
have a great time for eight
weeks.
I stop by the recreation
department about once a month
to bring myself up-to-date on
recreation programs and I %%as
very concerned %hen I \%as told
that the YMCA was trying to
merge with them.
Thank Nou Mr. Sauer tour
city manager) for doing >our
homework and realizing that a
merge would not be in the best
interest of Bradford County
children. I only hope that the
community will also do their
r homework and realize what
y they may be losing.
I urge citizens to xoice your
S. c rns at blic city coungif
meetings because once the dealf,
T 1 isanade thereas&,Istgig'barfg
d as you can see with the Pratt
at Street property.
t! With that decision the city
at counsel has literally left the
at children out in the cold
n because the counsel did not do
e their homework.
0 I also urge the city council
et. members to investigate the pros
Y' and cons of this proposed
ie merge and not to believe
Or hearsay. Please remember that it
ur is your duty to investigate all
avenues before making
B decisions that will affect
everyone living in this county.


Has any council member
taken the time to address Ms.
McMillian, the recreation
director, concerning this merge?
I'm afraid that you have
already made one blind
decision. Please don't make it
two. A merge may save the city
a few bucks down the road but


Are kids
being put out
into the
street?

Dear Editor:
I would like to ask the city
officials of Starke where their
priorities are?
Everyone of you seem to be
up in arms over how the


it will be the working class
citizens of Bradford County
who will pay the difference
with every activity.
My daddy always said, "If it
ain't broke then don't fix it."

The Van Wagenen family of
Brooker would like to thank the
entire community for the kindness
shown to us during this past week
after the Winn-Dixie Pharmacy
incident.
We are overwhelmed with the
kindheartedness of all of you, the
prayers, flowers, cards and phone
calls.
There are so many people to thank
- we certainly don't want to leave
anyone off the list, but we are
especially thankfulfor the quick,
unselfish help offered by Karen
Jones (the correctional officer who
assisted Van until the rescue came),
the Starke Police Department and
the Bradford County EMS.
Special thanks to Tommy Jackson,
Anna and the entire Winn-Dixie
family.
This trying time has been a gentle
reminder of the goodness of people
- This trying time has been a
gentle reminder of how important
we are to each other- By the
grace of God, our family is
enjoying the sunshine today.
The Van Wagenen Family.

If you have always done it
that way, it is probably
wrong:. i f-'
-Charles. K ttering

SMITH

'"I knew I could win and I
wanted to make a difference,"
Smith said. -.
Smith told the audience that
he feels he has a good shotto
win because no matter who the
opponent is, he has what it
takes.
"-I've gone up against some
well-funded Republican
opponents, but because I
stayed on the issues, I made
Opponents uncomfortable and
won,' Smith said.
-Smith said he was confident
he could win in North Florida
because of the voters..
"People in this area don't
care if you're Democrat .or
Republican," Smith- said. "they
vote for you because of who
you are." ._
Smith said if elected-one of
his-first priorities would be to
put the state's 'educational
system back on the right track.
"Florida is 49th among all
states in many of its test scores
of all college-bound seniors,"
Smith said. "As governor, I'd
make sure we did much
better."
He said he was also in favor
of raising teachers' salaries .

governor I'd see to it that our
teachers are paid like the
professionals they are and that
we expect them to be."
He said he felt the current
administration had the state's

direction.
"I believe this governor and
this administration forgot the
purpose of public schools,"
Smith said. "It's not to prepare
the students for a test one week
out of the year, it's to prepare
you to be successful in life."


Smith told the audience he
knew he had a long road ahead
of him.
"I knew that this would be a

Smith thanked former Union

Whitehead for getting him into
the political arena......
"One day (former) Alachua
County Sheriff Lou Hendry
walked into my office one day
and said, 'We decided to get a
change.' I said, 'Who's we?'
He said, 'Me and John
Whitehead. We talked about it

Smith said he asked Hendry
to let him think about it, but
the next day in the Gainesville
Sun there was a story saying
he would be running.
"And that's the way John
Whitehead works," Smith said.

"You'll always be the sheriff

Smith said. "It's wonderful

Annual health fair owes its existence to local woman


BY MARCIA MILLER
Telegraph Staff Writer
When Lillian Stump donated
$100,000 to the Shands Starke
Hospital Auxiliary several-
years ago, she did so on the--
condition that proceeds from
the funds would be used to
provide annual healthcare
projects that would benefit the
community.
One of the primary projects
funded by portions of that
major donation is the annual
Lillian Stump Community
Health Fair, which ill form a
keynote of the golden
anniversary being celebrated b)
the hospital this week
The health fair %ill take
place on Friday, March 3. from
8-11 a.m. in the atrium at
Shands Starke. Free health
screenings, including blood
pressure, bone density,
cholesterol, pulmonary
function and much more, will
be available free of charge to
anyone who wishes to attend.
Drop in at any time during the
health fair and take ad\aniage
of the services offered.
.Many of the doctors and
specialists who provide
,services to local patients will
Also be in attendance.
On Thursday, March 2,
Shands Starke will also host a
50th anniversary birthday
celebration from 5-7 p.m. in
the atrium. A number of
recognition and a% ards will be
presented. Refreshments and
birthday cake will be available
for everyone w ho attends.
Special speakers ill talk
briefly and attendees can stroll
through hospital history with a
special Walk Through Time
display.
The-, entire community Is
invited to participate in both-of
these special events.
Stump long-time
benefactor to
hospital, community
Stump has '- w orn the
trademark pink smock sported
by the Shands Starke Hospital
Auxiliary for many years, but
her commitment to healthcare
and the community began even
before she became a "pink
'lady."
Stump was born in Bradford
County in 1919 and graduated
from Bradford High School in
1938. She received her nursing
degree from Orange General
Hospital School of Nursing in
1942, just in time to be of
service to her country during
World War II.
She joined the .Army
Nursing Corps in 1943 and
spent three years in Europe in
England. France, Belgium,
Holland and Germany. Stump
was among the corps of nurses
who landed on the beaches of
Normandy on D-Day, in order
to serve the soldiers who had
fallen in the conflict.
After returning to Starke,
she managed the family
business, Stump's Department
Store, for many years, and the
store prospered under her
guidance.
Stump often chose
nontraditional roles for herself.
She wore a military uniform in
wartime, in spite of being the
daughter :of a well-to-do family
at a time in history when most
women were staying home to
raise families.:
She then became- a
businessperson and worked
full-jme, beginning in the 50s
when'the "Leave It to Beaver"
stereoty pe female seemed more
the norm.
Her drive for success and
accomplishment extended far
beyond herself, how e er. She
wanted every community
group she was associated with
*to be successful as well, and if
Stump was involved, it
usually was.
SHer humrnanitarianrrspirit and
willingness to work elen
harder for a profit that was for
the good of the community
than she did for a profit in her
own business affairs led to an
impressive list of
accomplishments.
Stump was the major donor
for the educational complex On
Pratt Street that bears her
name. She was the major
donor ho made the historic
renovation of the Starke
Woman's Club possible. She
'as a major donor in the effort
to help endow the college


scholarships offered by the
Shands Starke Auxiliary each


year, and in funding projects
by the auxiliary that benefit
patients and staff at the
hospital.
In addition to helping to


fund the Stump Education
Center, she also played a major
role in the renovation of the
1902 courthouse that is now
the Santa Fe Community


College Andrews Center and
the historic building that
became the SFCC Cultural
Building.
From church -activities at the


First Presbyterian Church of
Starke to supporting the
Bradford County Public
Library to being active.in the

benefit the community, you

60 play in Kiwanis fund-raising poker tournament


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was no bluff.
Jim Womack of Starke won
the Kiwanis Club of Starke's
inaugural Texas Hold 'Emr
poker tournament, then
surprised club, members by
donating his winnings back to
the club.
Club member Steve
Denmark said the club was not
expecting much of a profit
from this tournament since
money had to be invested in
purchasing poker tables, chips,
cards, food, etc. However,
Womack's prize for first place,
valued at $600, brought the net
profit to approximately $800.
"That was an extremely nice
gesture," Denmark said,
adding that Womack requested
the money be used toward the
club's Santa Fe Community
College scholarship fund.
In all, 60 turned out to play
in the tournament, which was
held Feb. 24 at the Starke Golf
and Country Club. Prizes with
a cash value of $345, $195,
$1,50, $120 and $90 were
awarded to those who finished
second through sixth. Those
individuals, in order, were:
John-John Crawford, Ron
Denmark, Warren Carver,
Koby Adams and Charlie
Baker.

each participant a certain
number of chips to play with.
Players continued to play until
they ran out of chips. Denmark
said players could hot purchase
more chips, which some other


such tournaments allow.
Half of the money raised byY
the tournament, which had a
$50 entry fee, went toward
player prizes, while the other
half went to the Kiwanis Club
to pay expenses and fund club
projects and Santa Fe
Community College
scholarships.
"To me, it was a magical
night," Denmark said.
"Everybody had a good time."
Denmark said the idea to
hold such a tournament as a
fundraiser came from fellow
Kiwanis member Carver, but
the club also got a big assist
from the Kiwanis Club of Lake
City.
The Lake City club holds
two or three such tournaments
a year. Club member Dennis
Smith invited Denmark to
Lake City to attend a dealer
training session.
"I was really overwhelmed
at, that point," Denmark said.
"Dealing is quite
complicated."

Auxiliary performs great service


The Shands Starke Auxiliary was chartered in 1956 as the
Bradford County Hospital Auxiliary.
The group had 55 charter members with a vision to assist the
hospital in the care and comfort of its patients. Through the years,
many volunteers have served and continue their mission of service.
The auxiliary is organized with an executive board which is made
up of the officers and 'committee chairmen. The function of the
executive board is to approve and conduct both business and social
activities of the auxiliary. The committee chairmen are responsible
for the operations of the many areas of service provided throughout
the hospital.
SAuxilians workon the .inpatient floor. ,bring, comfort -items 4o
patients in the lobby and welcome patiens and visitors as they enter
the hospital-helping to direct them to their desired destination.
Gift shop operation and overseeing the sale of candy in the lobby
are also important functions of auxilians. Auxiliary volunteers work
in departments throughout the hospital including medical records,
the cafeteria, radiology and Shands Starke Medical Group.
The volunteers are a vital part of the hospital. They worked more
than 22,000 hours in 2005 and donated $23.000 in equipment,
including an emergency department telemetry system, food
processor for inpatient meals and a surgical chair. Over the years,
the members have contributed more than $500,000 in equipment
purchases and scholarships.
Each year the auxiliary hosts an ice cream social in May for the
staff in celebration of National Hospital Week and a Fall Festival in
October. Auxilians also host their famous Christmas tea in
December. They work hard, but there is always time to network,
make new friends and socialize.
'' i .- *-" .. i


It is always a big night for the auxiliary when the Shands Starke
administration hosts the annual installation: banquet. Members
receive their service award pins and review the year's work and
contributions. '
Auxilians are part of the statewide network of hospital
volunteers. Members have the opportunity to attend local, regional
and state meetings to stay abreast of the work done throughout the
state of Florida in other hospitals by the auxiliary.
Linda Johns is the current president of the Shands Starke
Auxiliary and has served in this capacity several times before.
When asked about her service and the things she is most proud of.
she listed the endowed scholarship at Santa Fe Community College.
The proceeds from 3 $60.000 endowment fund two healthcare
scholarships every year. Johns said auxilians raise money in the gift
shop and through projects like the annual food booth at the
Bradford County Fair. The auxiliary booth is known for selling the
best strawberry shortcake in town.


"My parents told me it's better
to give than to receive and if you
work with the hospital auxiliary,
you will have a warm feeling of
giving back." said Johns. "I want
to thank each auxilian for their
time and commitment to Shands
Starke. It is a pleasure to serve as
president and work with each
and every one who .is a part of
Shands."
