Big Red Christmas Drive needs more green


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
Time Editor
The Big Red Christmas
Drive has been helping those
people in the community who
aire less FIrtunate since 2001.
Sponsored by the Union
.County Volunteer Fire
Department and emergency
personnel. the Big Red
Christmas Drive will sponsor
more than 50 families in Union
County this-year. This was up
Irom 30 fanmilies in 2005.
1 Union County Sheriff's
Deputy Mindy Goodwin said
Sthe drive is behind their goals
for this year and with the
added number of families, the
programmer is in need of more
community support.
In last week's issue of the
Union County Times, you
learned'about several ways to
help the drive, including
Adopt-a-Family.
Due to the nature of their
jobs, Goodwin said the fire
department and other
emergency personnel find
families who are in need of
help.
One of these families in
Lake Butler resident Barbara
Simmons and her four
children-Rachel, 7, Amber,
10. Ashley, 14. and Melissa,
17.
Simmons said she lived in
Delaware with her husband
and children, and at the time,
they were financially stable.
*Then. Simmons' husband
became -sick. He had cancer
and eventually died.


"He thought it was the man's
duty to provide," said
Simmons.
And when he was gone,' s.
was their only source ol
income.
Because o f t h
circumstances, Simmons the-,
moved her family to Virgini.i
to live with her mother. Sh,
eventually decided to move t(o
Florida because her sister said
it was a great place to live and
the people were friendly.
Ending up in Lake Butler.
Simmons first lived in a place
that had problems with
criminal activity that affected
her children.
"I knew I had to get out 01
there," she said.
Through Good wi n.
Simmons found half of houst
that had been converted into a
rentable apartment.
Though Simmons said ii
didn't look the best, windows
werebroken and there was no
heat, it was still a place to live
and rent was cheaper.
She said she gets buy with
one heater that they move
room to room and an electric
blanket.
Simmons has been having
trouble finding work because
she has to constantly take two
of children to doctor'.
appointments.
Goodwin said, "It's hard foi
her to find a job where a boss
will let -her only work on
certain days and certain
hours."
Another issue is that
Simmons does not have


transportation, so the job
would have to be close enough


for her to walk to from her
house in Lake Butler.

The Coastal store on Main
Sireel in Lake BLutler made its
final transformation into
Broaster Chicken on Oct. 19.
The takeout chicken eatery
has now been open for six
weeks, and business is going
well so far, said Jay Chohan,
who is part of the family that
owns the business and
convenience store next door.
It may have seemed as if the
store opened up quickly, but
Chohan said he has had the
idea for more.than 10 years.
"I came up with this idea ...
in 1995," he said, because
there was no stand-alone
eatery that was convenient for
people on the go.
"Initially, I wanted to do a
combination of subs, pizza and
chicken," he said.
Since 1995, he was in
discussion with Broaster
Chicken.
"It was a good opportunity
to do chicken only." Chohan
said. "It's convenient for
people who work to do 'to
Chohan picked Broaster
Chicken because the
company's chicken had a
unique recipe. All the chicken
used is fresh and-then has to be
marinated for 1 2 to 24 hours
with seasonings before
cooking.
The eatery offers traditional,
crispy, extra crispy and cajun
style chicken in a variety of
sizes, fish and a variety of side
dishes. Hand-dipped ice cream
in about six flavors are also
offered.
Broaster Chicken is not a
franchise, Chohan said.
Each store is a licensed
chicken eatery, and he said his
store manager had to be sent to
Wisconsin to be trained in the
chicken preparation (with the
company that has been in
business since the 1950s).
"Customers have made good
comments so far." he said.
Chohan, who was been with
his family i.n the area since
1991, said he couldn't have
done it without community
support.
"The respect the community
has shown me is tremendous,"
he said. "I'm very proud to be
part of this community."
Chohan runs the business
with his father. Jeet
Chohan-known simply as
"Pop"-and brothers.
Broaster Chicken, 280 W.
Main St., is open Monday
. through Saturday from 10 a.m.
to 8 p.m. and on Sunday from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The business
also accepts call-in orders at

A few months ago, she was
told she had some health
problems. but she was afraid to
,o to the doctor for the cost
and because of her husband
lost his battle with cancer.
"If they find something is
wrong with me," she said,
"who would take care of my

She even finds herself
asking, "Do you eat or go to
the doctor?"
"It's kind of a scary
question," Simmons said.

Dr. Marvin Johnson (fourth from right, in back) got
to celebrate his day with some of his poker buddies
that play every Tuesday night, including (1-r) Jerry


Whit Johnson,
with his son
Parker, becomes
a little emotional
at the party
honoring his
father. Whit has
been working for
his father for 12
years.

Reiman, Fred Cauley, Robert Walker, Robert
Gaubatz and Billy Ray Foister.


JOHNSON
Continued from p. 1A
did ER medicine.
Johnson grew up in
Statesville. Ala., and moved
away when he was 17 because
he knew he did not want to be
a farmer.
During the Korean Conflict,
he was in the Coast Guard. He
got his medical degree from
the University of Alabama in
1960, which at the time was


called the Medical College of
Alabama in Birmingham.
He then studied for two
years in Puerto Rico where he
met his wife, Sophie.
After this, he spent one year
in Atlanta, Ga.. doing
pathology at St. Joseph's
Hospital.
Beginning in 1964, he spent
Iwo years working in
laboratory medicine at the
University of Florida.
Eventually, Johnson came to
Lake Butler Hospital in 1984
with his broad knowledge in


the medical field.
He has run his family
practice in the same location
near the back of Lake Butler
Hospital/Hand Strgery
Center's ER, and for all of that
lime, he has impacted the
residents of Union County and
beyond.
Robert Walker, 96,
Johnson's second oldest
patient, wrote a letter to the
doctor that Johnson's son read
at the event.
"Knowing I can c6unt on
you is a prescription in itself,"
Walker said in the letter. He
also cited the times when
Johnson would make house
calls-something most doctors
today will not do.
One of. Johnson's five
children, Whit, has worked
with his father since 1994.
Whit joked, "No matter how
bad he treats us, we keep
coming back."
Johnson had never been
honored in such a way, Whit
said.
"That's all dad was talking
about-how great a party it
was," he said.


Although he is a little
biased, Whit said 'the party
validated that his dad was an
asset to the community.
Johnson works four days a
week and sees approximately
30 patients a day. He started
scaling back on patients more
than a year ago and no longer
accepts new patients because it
was impossible to handle the
number olf people in his office.
"He's always worried about
the patient. He's so selfless."
Whit said about his dad still
making house calls.
Although many mistakenly
took the Nov. 18 event as a
retirement party. Johnson said
he is not retiring quite yet. In
[act, he has new ventures that
he is working on.
Whit said Johnson has been
working for a long time to
bring a sleep study center to
.the county because his father's
patients have a need for it, and
his goal is to serve them better.
Besides Johnson's medical
achievements, he is a father of
five-Whit, DiDi, Wade, Eva
and Andrea-and has eight
grandchildren.

Attorney
general warns

of fraud
Attorney General Charlie
Crist issued a consumer alert.
Friday cautioning Florida
business owners against
variations on a scam that
involves deceptive marketing
of corporate minutes services.
Crist issued the advisory
while announcing that his
office has stopped the practice
of a California business that
used deceptive tactics to lure
Florida corporations into


buying corporate- minutes
documents from the company.
The company, calling itself
Florida Corporate
Headquarters, sent out official
looking forms, similar to those
sent out by the Florida
Department of State, that told
businesses they could be liable
for corporate debts simply by
failing, to keep proper
corporate minutes. The mailing
included a demand for $150
for in exchange for compiling
corporate minutes reports. The
deception was furthered by the
company's use of the official
seal of the State of Florida on
the envelopes containing the


statement. Crist's office began
investigating the company
three weeks ago.
"Companies will not be
allowed to trick businesses into
paying a fee they are not
required to pay," said Crist.
"Florida's good corporate
citizens do not deserve to be
penalized for wanting to dotthe
right thing."
According to an agreement
Crist's office reached with the
company, all Florida
corporations that paid for the
unnecessary service will have
their money returned to them.
The attorney general's office
has been authorized by the


company to directly receive all
the checks as they are
delivered to the company's
Tallahas-see address and to
return them to the businesses
that sent them.
To date, the attorney general
has received $31,400 in-checks
that will be returned to Florida
businesses and more checks
will be returned as they are
received.
After the attorney general's
office launched its
investigation, the company and
its owner agreed to cooperate
and return the checks to all
businesses that had already
sent the fee. The company


further agreed to stop using the
practices that led to Floridians
being victimized and
-reimbursed the taxpayers for
the cost of the state's
investigation. Business owners
who believe they were
defrauded by the company can
call Crist's fraud hotline at
(866) 9-NO-SCAM or (866)
966-7226.

sent by the company is

Local girl sings at Ham Jam ', '


BY LINDSEY KIRKLAND
T'im's Editor
Like many. Union County
resident Heather Dockery
dreams of a singing career.
At only 15 years old,
Heather has already \Vwon many
singing competitions and
appeared recently at the 19"'
Annual First Coast Ham .aim.
FiThe Ham Jam began in 1988
as not only a barbecue cooking
coittest. but a venue for artist
like the Charlie Daniels Band,
Tanya Tucker. Tim McGraw
and other country singers.
The 2006 Ham Jam featured
Craig Morgan and Mark
Chesnutt, the likes of which
Heather hopes to be known
one day.
Heather only began singing
in public about three to four
years ago.
Her mom, Maric Deen, said
Heather got into ing when


Heather Dockery


she was experiencing some
health problems.


Heather
Dockery, 15,
performs "Break
It To Me Gently"
at the First
Coast Ham Jam.
She started
singing to make
herself feel
better when she
was going
through health
problems.


When she was at home,
Dcen said, she would sing to
make herself feel better.
"It's something she does
because she enjoys it," Deen
said.
While at the Ham Jam,
Heather sane. "Break It To Me
Gently" because she likes
songs that challenge her
vocally.
To help make her dreams
come true, Heather has already
made a CD and said she is
often complimented on her
powerful voice. She enjoys
singing all types of
imusic-Ifrom Elvis to jazz to
blues and Patsy Cline-but
said her true love is gospel
music.
"She said she feels that her
place is to sing music for the
Lord," Deen said. "Heather has
sung at many churches in
surrounding areas, including
some in Lake Butler."
Heather said she is always a
little nervous when she first
gets up to perform, but when
she starts singing, she feels
better.
Deen, who homeschools her
children (along with husband,
Robin), said she is amazed at
how eager children are to
participate in activities and
pursue what they love to do.
"It's something she's
motivated to do on her own,"
Deen said.
With the recording of her
CD, Heather hopes to provide
her music to radio stations in
the local and surrounding
areas.
If you wish to learn more
about Heather and her music,
you can e-mail her at
www.sweetdreams5775@yaho
o.com.


The following people participated in the initiation ceremony: (front, I-r) Geraldine

Tired of Giving?
THIS TIME of year is often referred to as the season of giving, yet many people feel like Scrooge from
Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Maybe you do. Maybe you are tired of giving and think it is not worth doing. The
Bible says a lot about giving. Over 1400 verses mention it. Probably the best known of these verses is Acts
20:35 where the Apostle Paul quoted Jesus' saying, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." That might be
said, "You'll be happier giving than you will getting." You are better off giving than getting. Perhaps that runs
against conventional wisdom. Perhaps you think that you want to get all you can out of life and think that the
more you give the less you'll have. Perhaps, but Jesus knew what He was talking about when He said, "It is
more blessed to give than to receive." If you want to be happy, stop thinking about what you want and start
thinking about others. Philippians 2:4 says, "Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for
the interests of others." Giving is about being concerned about others and what is good for them. not just your
selfish desires. Scrooge was not happy being selfish and neither will you be.

Donahoe, deputy postmaster
general and chief operating
olricer. "Our commitment to

We have a Loal ahead of us

And meeting that challenge
will take the coordinated
efforts of 700,000 full-time
and seasonal workers: a
National Operations Center
coordinating mail flow and
delivery around the clock,
seven days a week: expanding
air cargo lifts by 60 percent;
increasing the nuinmber of direct

special page was created as a
single destination for all

USPS.com/holiday.
More than 4 billion seasonal
stamps were printed this year.
The official holiday stamp is a
series of four photographs of
snowflakes.
"The ways Americans
celebrate the holidays are as
varied as snowflakes. No two
are exactly alike. Snow
crystals often show many flat,
crystalline surfaces, or facets.


Bright reflections ofl these

fallen snow its sparkle,"
Donaahoc said. "That's our goal

its predecessor, the Post Office

friends, families, neighbors

independent federal agency
that visits more than 144
million homes andl businesses
every day, the postal service is
the only service provider
.delivering to very address in
the nation. It receives no
taxpayer dollars for routine
operations, hut derives its
operating revenues solely from
the sale of postage, products
and services.
With annual revenues of $70
billion, it is the world's leading
provider of mailing and
delivery services, offering
some of the most affordable
postage rates in the world. The
USPS delivers more than 46
percent of the world's mail

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



ACORN provides affordable healthcare for rural areas


BYTERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
The Alachua County
Organization for Rural Needs,
Inc., ACORN, was founded in
1974 by two Gainesville
churches-United Methodist
Church of Gainesville and
Westminster Presbyterian.
It was the vision of
Westminster Presbyterian'-s-
pastor, Dr. Glenn Dickson,
Barbara Scott, R.N., and two
former Vista workers, Harriet
(Happy) Taylor and Joanne
Weinman.
The desire of this group was
to establish a health clinic in
an area where there was great
need: the migrant workers and
residents of the northwestern
section of Alachua County.
In 1972, the North Central
Florida Health Planning
Council listed the target area
as having the largest rural
population of any tract in
Alachua County-9,079-and
the median income per family
was $3,500.
It took many dedicated
people to make it become a
reality. Only by health
professionals volunteering
their time could the clinic
open.
The town of LaCrosse
donated the use of the
LaCrossee Women's Club
building and provided utilities
to permit the clinic to open
once a week on Thursday
nights from 7:30-10 p.m.
Greater Bell Methodist
Church in Moneocha donated
office space and utilities.
There were no financial,
geographics or other
requirements for eligibility.
Only a donation was requested
from each patient.
From April 1975 to 1976,
the clinic's first year of
operation, there were 322
patient visits. In 1976 there
were 322 patient visits and in
1977, it had grown to 654.
A needs assessment that was,
conducted in 1975 fund that
health and dental care were the
major concerns of the
residents. The area had only
one part-time doctor, and other
medical facilities were located
15-20 miles away in
Gainesville.
Many people in the rural
community did not have
available transportation.
Additionally, the eligibility'
requirements for free or
reduced medical costs were
often a problem for the poor or.
migrant workers.
In the' beginning, funding
was provided by the two
founding churches along with
Florida Migrant Ministry,
Civitan Club, Junior Women's
Club, University United
Methodist and First
Presbyterian Church.
Raising money to buy
equipment and medial supplies
was the next most important
need.
Dr. Donald 'Eitzman
provided a table and chair for
obstetrics and gynecological
services.
Dr. and Mrs. Wendall
Stainsby donated numerous
medical diagnostic items. Mr.
J.D. Henry of Southeastern
Surgical Supply provided
supplies for the clinic lab and
offered to assist in securing lab
supplies at cost.
In 1978, Larry Olson, Glenn
Dickson and Larry and Lucy
Brock sold frozen yogurt at the
Spring Arts Festival to raise
money for ACORN, which
they continued doing for
several years to come.
Dr. Wayne Bryan, Charlie
Ross and Glenn Dickson took
pictures and prepared a slide
show used to make
presentations to organizations
in an effort to raise money.
ACORN staff and board
members spent many hours
writing and submitting
proposals, hoping to receive
much needed grant money.
Unfortunately, only a few of
the proposals were ever
funded, but it was a necessary
part of the funding for the
clinic in the. early days.
A grant proposal written by
Glenn Dickson and Barbara
Scott, R.N. was submitted to
the. American Cancer Society.
This grant was also not funded,
but the American Cancer
Society provided an efficiency
apartment for a patient from
the ACORN clinic while he


equipment and funding for
weekly pap smear testing at
the clinic.
Joanne Weinman, Harriet
Taylor and "-y Brock spent a
great deal time writing a
proposal fc a CETA grant.


This grant provided salaries for
four full-time employees and
one part-time worker from
April to October 1978.
These positions were for one
health coordinator, Rosa
Gaffney; one assistant nurse


coordinator, Wanda Lee; two
outreach workers, Sara Kite
and Lena Brightman; and a
part-time clerk typist, Lyndal
Goodbread.
Barbara Scott served as the.
nurse coordinator and Harriet


Taylor as the field worker,
providing transportation to the
clinic and to follow-up
appointments in Gainesville.
Having some paid staff
personnel increased the use of
the clinic and proved to be a


big step forward. In March
1978, 33 patients were seen at
the clinic. One month after the
grant, the number increased to
-84.

Little Angela Flournoy talks to Dawn Flournoy about what she plans to
tell Santa when he arrives. The two were among numerous families who
attended Hampton Elementary School's first-ever Breakfast with Santa
Dec. 2. A pancake breakfast was followed by a visit from Santa Claus.
Parents could purchase photos of their kids with Santa and children
received goodie bags for attending. A number of door prizes were given
away and a Santa Store was available where children could purchase
Christmas gifts for their friends. The event was a fund-raiser for the
Hampton Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization and the money will be
used to benefit the school and its students.


LEFT: Tricia Redding has a heart-to-heart with

many cakes can a pancake flipper flip? Ask
Wendy Trinckes, she was one of the chefs for
the event.

ABOUT REAL ESTATE

* Mike Goldwire, Realtor
American Dream of Northeast Florida, Inc.


Check the History Books!


Bubble, bubble, toil and
trouble! There's no doubt that
the real estate marketplace is
settling down from its break-
,.-neck pace of the last few years.
There's also speculation that
the real estate "bubble" is .
going to burst, but it's nearer
the truth to say that the most
overheated markets are losing
steam, while other markets are
reasonably readjusting.
The biggest worry swirling
around the whole issue relates
to mortgage interest rates, and
whether we're looking at 7%
rates on the horizon. Before
anyone begins to panic, how-
ever, it's useful to reflect on
history. During the last thirty-
four years, interest rates were
lower than today only four
times. To review, rates were
6.79% in 1998, 5.92% in 2003,
and 5.71% in 2004 and again
in 2005.


The average interest rate in
the 1990's was 9.8%, and in
the 1980's it averaged 12.62%!
Double-digit loan rates were
common in the seventies and
eighties. It should be pretty
clear by now that real estate
markets everywhere will find a
way to survive interest rates
rising to 7%! .
Buyers have always been
plentiful, and will continue to
be. Buyers will still compete
for homes, but the most attrac-
tive homes will,be those which
the sellers present in great con-
dition and at a fair price.
Consult a professional to out-
line your no-nonsense
approach to selling in a cool-
ing market.

In celebration of 25 years of

at the various hospitals they
serve to meet with staff and
offer viewing of the inside of
their helicopter.
One adult flight team arrived
at Shands at Starke on Nov. 13
in their Agusta 109 Power

Pilot Dave Thompson of


Gainesville has been with
ShandsCair for 12 years and
was formerly chief pilot with

Gene Raulerson has been
with ShandsCair for 7 years
and has been a Union County
EMS paramedic for 25 years.
Mel Bledsoe of Ocala has

ShandsCair for over 6 years.
The helicopter is large
enough for a patient stretcher
and seating for a pilot, nurse
and paramedic.


The Shands University of
Florida helicopter is colored
royal blue with orange trim,
complete with a painted on
alligator in a white coat with
tongue depressors dangling
from the pockets, sporting a
leather flight helmet and
goggles, a stethoscope and a

Each ShandsCair adult flight
teams consists of a pilot,

Their lives were saved
through donations of
foundations such as Believe in'
Miracles, Sole Sisters and the
WeCare Physicians Referral

Christmas

trees

presented to

officials
The Florida Christmas Tree
Association recently presented
Christmas trees to Gov. Jeb
Bush and Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson. The trees will remain
on display in the Capitol
throughout the holiday season.
The red cedars were donated
by Jack and Judy Ewing,
owners of Santa's Christmas
Tree Forest in Eustis, and
presented on behalf of the
Florida Christmas Tree
Association, which has more
than 100 family members and
represents Christmas tree
producers statewide. The
association educates producers
and promotes fresh, Florida-
grown trees to the public.
"Buying homegrown Florida
Christmas trees helps support
our farmers and its boosts our


state's economy, Bronson
said. "In addition, buying
locally grown trees is better for
the environment because less
fuel is used in transportation."
An estimated 20,000 trees
are grown in Florida each year
and include red cedar, Virginia
pine, sand pine, spruce pine,
Arizona cypress and Leyland
cypress.
Christmas tree farming in
Florida is a small industry run
by family-owned businesses on
land that has often been passed
through generations.
Jack and Judy Ewing started
their Christmas tree farm on 13
acres in 1987.
"Over the years we have
.added features to our choose-
and-cut farm," Jack Ewing said.
"We make a family's trip to cut
their Christmas tree into an
entertaining adventure. They
not only can get their tree, but
they can visit our craft shop,
take horse, pony or miniature
horse cart rides, roast a hot dog
on the fire, take a hay ride or
play on the haystack. On the
busy weekends, we entertain up

YMCA
Continued from p. 1C
wellness center on U.S. 301
south in Starke. This center
provides exercise activities for
adults, as well as health and
wellness activities for children.
The YMCA was chosen to
receive the Best Places to
Work Award after the
completion of a study of local
businesses and organizations
that operate in Bradford or
Union, ,counties or, the
Keystone ,Heights area.,
FloridaWorks and the North
Florida Regional Chamber of
Commerce hired Personnel
Dynamics to conduct a survey
of businesses in those areas.
The survey was voluntary and
confidential. Businesses were.
asked to answer questions in
37 different categories, like
benefits paid to employees,
employee turnover rates,
training programs, business
growth rates, etc.
The answers were compiled
and compared and four
businesses with the top
averages were chosen for the
award.
Each business that
participated will receive a
confidential report that details
h9w it stacked up, to the
average in each category. A
general report discusses the
averages in each category for
the area, but does not include
specific scores earned by
specific businesses.
The only specifics released
to the public are those factors
that helped earn the four top
businesses their awards. The
program is designed to be a
learning tool for businesses.
that want to find out more
about how to attract and retain
. good employees.


Factors which tipped the
scales in the favor of the
YMCA included a 70 percent
growth rate over the past two
years. The average growth rate
for businesses surveyed was
6.9 percent over the past two
years.
Amanda Bray, director of
the Bradford-Union YMCA,
said the tremendous growth
rate came as no surprise to
them.
The YMCA of Bradford and
Union counties was born in
January of 2004 when some
Bradford citizens got together
with representatives of the
YMCA of North Central
Florida, based in Gainesville.
The local people were
interested in seeing YMCA
programs begin in Bradford
County and that idea grew by
leaps and bounds. In August of
that year, the YMCA offered

Andrews tries to

its first after-school program in
the county.
After-school programs were
soon offered at Starke
Elementary and Lake Butler
Elenientary.
The wellness center was
opened in a small strip mall on
U.S. 301 south in April of-
2005, and Bray said plans are
now in the works to expand the
area of the center and the
programs offered there.

As the programs and sites
expanded, so did the YMCA's
need for employees to serve in
those sites and programs.
Another factor in the survey
which was in the YMCA's
favor was the fact that the
organization offers 50- to 100-
percent discounts to employees
who take part in the child care
programs offered by the Y.


"Child care is a big factor in
the finances of a lot of
employees all over the
country," said Bray. "The Y
helps ease that burden for its
employees."
Of course, the YMCA also
offers public scholarships to
pay the cost for children whose
families cannot afford to pay
for them to participate in the
programs.
The YMCA also offers free
gym memberships to all of its
employees, so they, as well as
their children, -can take
advantage of the programs.
Bray said the YMCA offers
many other benefits to its full-
time employees, including an
excellent retirement plan and
good health and dental
insurance.
The biggest benefit that she
identified, however, has
nothing to do with money.
"It is so rewarding to work
for the YMCA and see the
difference that this
organization can make in the
lives of people. It is amazing
how much the Y can affect
people in an area," said Bray.
She also said the YMCA
does an excellent job of
training its staff members.
Intensive background checks
are completed, of course, since
most employees work with
children. However, the training
, that is provided for all
employees is even more
intensive.
Each employee is trained in
offering services to the public
in all the various programs the
YMCA offers. They are also
trained in CPR, first aid and
the use of an electronic
defibrillator. All employees are
also trained to recognize the,
signs of child abuse and
prevention techniques.
YMCA of Bradford County,
which is also open to Union
County residents, has a variety
of membership fegs.

Tiger boys basketball can't keep up with Class 5A Columbia


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
It was a fairly competitive
game in the first quarter, but in
the end, the Union County
boys basketball team was no
match for visiting Columbia,
losing 60-40 on Nov. 30.
Columbia, a Class 5A school
that qualified for the
postseason last year with a 21-
9 record, used its size
advantage, blocking six shots
alone in the second quarter.
The visitors scored just 10
points in that quarter, but
Union (1-1 prior, to Dec. 2)
was held without a field goal,
scoring just two points on a
couple of free throws by Ted
Young, leaving the Tigers
trailing 26-15 at the half.
Union's inability to score
followed a spurt at the end of
the first quarter in which the
Tigers scored five points in 43
seconds. Justin Griffin made
two free throws and Marcus
Albritton made another
following an unforced turnover.

Chris Edenfield then made a
backcourt steal with less than
10 seconds on the clock and
drained a jumper, sending the
Tigers into the second quarter
trailing just 16-13.
The Tigers never regained.
that momentum. The second
quarter was disastrous, and the
'third wasn't much better.

pass frotih Gober on the
opening kickoff and put it past
Clay goalie Ryan Mundy just
14 seconds into the match. It
was the quickest goal ever
scored by a Keystone player.
That would not be indicative
of the rest of the first-half

score only once. more when
Ryan Miller took goalie
Michael McLeod's punt, beat
his defender and put a shot into
the back of the net in the 37'
minute for a 2-0 lead.

second half when the Indians
scored three quick goals.
Gober put Keystone up 3-0
in the 60th minute when he
scored off of an assist by
Miller. Gober then recorded
two assists in the 65th and 68h
minutes. Those led to goals by
Miller-his sixth goal in the
last three matches-and Drew
Wingate.
Gober finished the match
with three assists.
The visiting Blue Devils
finally got on the board in the
71st minute, but the Indians
answered quickly when
McLeod, moving to the central
midfield position, sent a pass
to Hayden Rodel, who pushed
the ball past a diving Mundy
for a 6-1 Keystone lead.
Rodel capped the scoring in
the 79th minute, taking a punt
from backup keeper Juan

the near post.

Area has two new choices for healthcare providers


New pediatric
office provides
walk-in services.
BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Starke residents can now
receive walk-in medical
services at the new Children's
Medical Center located on
West Call Street across from
Winn Dixie.
Dr. Andres Villar opened
Children's Medical Center on
Oct. 9 of this year.
"We are developing our
patient population, and we
hope that the community will
realize we are here to offer
quality health care for their
children," said Villar.
In 1988, Villar opened his
first Children's Medical Center
in Perry.
"It developed into a dream
of providing much needed
medical services to rural areas
in order to fill in the void for
communities that would
otherwise need to drive long
distances to receive quality
medical care," said Villar.
So far that dream has turned
into 13 medical centers
throughout north Florida
including locations in Lake
Butler, Gainesville, Lake City


Dr. Andres Villar (right) with medical assistant, Diane
Fretwell of Children's Medical Center in Starke.


and Macclenny.
The walls throughout the
Starke center are decorated
with life-sized hand painted
cartoon characters, providing
children with a friendly and
comforting atmosphere.
Villar said that although he
has several offices, he takes
the time to individualize each
one, including the most
important aspect of hiring only
Florida board certified


physicians with pediatric
experience.
"I screen, interview, run
background and reference
checks on anyone I hire: This
is not a responsibility, that I
take lightly, especially when it
comes to parents needing
physicians they can trust," said
Villar.
Being new to the area, the
Starke office is currently open
tl pe days a week on
Monday, Tuesdays and
Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m.
The Children's Medical
Center in Lake Butler, which
opened in December of 2004,
is temporarily closed for
remodeling and is expected to
reopen in February. In the
meantime, patients can be seen
at either the Starke, Lake City
or Gainesville locations,
whichever is most convenient.
Children's Medical Center
accepts most traditional
insurance plans, such as Blue
Cross as well as Medicaid,
Medipass and Medicaid
Reform. Non-insured patients
can apply for services on a
sliding-scale fee.
For further information or to
schedule an appointment, call
(904) 966-0000.


After Hours
Care provides
services at
night, on
weekends.
BY TERESA
STONE-IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
By day, Dr. Elio Maden
provides medical services at
Florida State Prison.
On weeknights, you'll find
him at his medical practice,
After Hours Care, located at
319 W. Call Street in Starke in
the same building but next
door to the new Children's
Medical Center.
Maden's nurse, Tina Battles,
also works days at Florida
State Prison as a nursing
supervisor.
"Together, we came up with
the idea of providing
immediate medical services to
the Starke community at a time
that is convenient for them,"
said Maden.
Those who are unable to
take time off from work during
the day or who may need
medical service in the evening
hours can be seen from 6 to 9
p.m. Monday through Friday,
and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
Saturday.


After Hours Care is a walk-
in clinic, and if there is a need
for medical services late at
night, that closing time does
not necessarily apply.
"I stay until the last patient
who needs assistance is seen,"
said Maden.
The care center, has two
examination rooms and i in
the process of setting up an
EKG machine.
Dr. Maden said that he set
up his practice in Starke
because he wants to make sure
that people can be provided
with good health care services


in the evening hours,
especially if they are unable to
tend to health issues during the
daytime.
Services at After Hours Care
include but are not limited to
wound care, biopsies,
pediatrics and women's health
services.
After Hours Care accepts all
insurances and offers a sliding-
scale fee for those who are
uninsured. The walk-in clinic
also accepts appointments.
They can be reached by calling
(904) 966-2400.

BHS wrestlers get off to good start


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Bradford won two of the
first three actual head-to-head
matches, but the Tornadoes
didn't fare well in the 135-
160-pound weight classes in a
47-27 loss to visiting
Middleburg on Nov. 29.
Each team forfeited a weight
class-one of which gave
Bradford's R.J. Starling a win
in the 103-pound class-to
start the match before Max
Ennis got the Tornadoes off to
a fast start. Ennis, wrestling in
the l119-pound-class, had little
trouble finishing his opponent
off, pinning him to the mat in
just 12 seconds.
Bradford's Carlton Crudup
wound up being pinned in the
125-pound class, but Dylan
White gave the Tornadoes a
slight lead in the points
standing when her recorded a
17-16 win in the 130-pound
class.
That would be Bradford's
last win until Brandon
Andrews stepped on the mat in
the 171-pound class.
Middleburg took five straight
wins and won seven of the last
nine matches.


Semester
sign-up for
host families
is under way
Lake Butler resident Dawn
Brown is looking for a family
in the area who is interested in
making a difference by hosting
a scholarship high school girl
from Malaysia for the spring
semester.

Bradford/Union County area on
the Youth Exchange and Study
Program, or YES.
Created by the U.S. State
Department as a response to
the events- of Sept. 11, the
YES program brings high
school students from countries
with significant Muslim
populations to live and study
in the U.S. for a year.
The goal-,is to promote
cultural diversity and religious
understanding. These children,
are ambassadors of their
countries and are excited to
learn about how we live and
learn in the United States.
Two YES students from
India and Egypt are already
studying in the Gainesville area
this school year. They were
selected from thousands who
applied for their outgoing
personalities, academic abilities
and leadership potential. YES
students also come with full-
medical insurance and a
monthly government stipend.
Brown is a veteran cluster
director with PAX and loves
working with her students.
YES students look forward to
living like American teens for
one school year, joining sports
teams, studying for exams, and
participating fully in family,
life. PAX families provide
students with meals,-a place to
sleep and study, and a warm,
supportive environment.
Private rooms. are not
required and single parents,
young couples and retirees are
welcome to apply.
